will enjoy the benefits of a good fi-
nancial reputation.
The association shall procure its
commodities at considerable savings

LANSING, Jan. 16. -(/P)-The
State Liquor Control Commisison to-
day took its initial step to outlaw
the home gin industry.
Chairman Frank A. Picard an-

called "bathtub" gin.
Under the new rulings, a limited
amount of alcohol will be available
at State liquor stores but its price
will be boosted beyond any attractive

First Day Of
Clothes Drive
Is Successful
A generous response was accorded
the efforts of Union committeemen
in the first day of the Good-Will
fund clothes drive, according to the
report made last night by Allen D.
McCombs, '35, student executive+
councilman in charge of the drive.+
"Today's response was very encour-
aging, but we are in hopes that more
clothing will be contributed as there
is still a definite need for garments,
particularly suits and overcoats," Mc-
Combs added.
It was also stated that negotiations
are being made with a local cleaning
establishment for the complete reno-
vation of the clothes, and their co-
operation on the matter is almost as-

Student committeemen will be sta-
tioned in the student offices of the
Union every afternoon to make col-

tribute to the drive need merely call

Vandenberg, Lewis
Argue On Seaway
WASHINGTON, Jan, 16- ()-
Replying to a speech by Senator J.
Hamilton Lewis (Dem., Ill.), that the
St. Lawrence Treaty would give Great
Britain a "military avenue" through
the United States, Senator Arthur
H. Vandenberg (Rep., Mich.), told
the Senate today that England and

would have under the new pact.
"If the King can move on Chicago
under the St. Lawrence treaty, he

Senator, referring to the treaty of

Rachmaninoff Tells
How He Apportions
His Day Of Music
Sergei Rachmaninoff, pianist, who
will appear here on the Choral Union
Concert series tomorrow at Hill Au-
ditorium, recently explained how he
apportions his time among his activi-
ties as composer, pianist, and con-
"The whole time of my musical
career, some 24 years, might be
roughly divided into three periods of
approximately eight years each, of
composing, concert work, and con-
ducting," he said.
"When I am concertizing, I cannot
compose. When I feel like writing
music, I have to concentrate on that
- I cannot touch the piano except
for chording. A poem, a picture,
something concrete, helps me im-
His mention of poem and picture
is significant, as some of the com-
poser's most noted works were thus

and orchestra, a musical interpreta-
tion of Edgar Allan Poe's poem, the
"Island of the Dead," a symphonic
tone poem inspired by Arnold Boeck-
lin's famous painting, and "Prelude
in C-Sharp Minor" is said to have
been suggested by the bell-tones of
St. Sophia Cathedral in Novgorod.
His C-sharp Minor Prelude is his
best known single composition. It has
been played in symphonic, jazzed,
and solo forms, and living down the

J-Hop Drivers Must
Have Parents' Consent
Permission to drive automobiles
for the J-Hop period will be
granted only under the conditions
which are prescribed by the office
of the dean of students, Walter
B. Rea, assistant to the dean, de-
clared yesterday.
"Last year many driving per-
mits were given out without the
signatures of the applicants' par-
ents, the license numbers, or other
required information. This year no
relaxation of the regular rule can
be allowed," he stated.
Applications for permits should
be called for at the dean's office,

enough so they may be sent to the
applicant's parents and returned

Warburg Sends
A Sharp Reply
To Fr. Coughlin
Tells Radio Priest That
Money Is Not Scarce, But
Distribution Is Poor
NEW YORK, Jan. 16.-()-There
is no famine of money, but there is
a "maldistribution of wealth," James
P. Warburg said in a letter today to
the Rev. Charles E. Coughlin, Detroit
priest, in reply to statements made
by the priest in an address on Sun-
Mr. Warburg, vice-chairman of the
bank of the Manhattan Company
and former adviser to the American
delegation at the London conference,
asked the priest if he "really" be-
lieved the World War was started by
bankers, or that bankers pushed the
government into selling the "bloody"
bonds, and asserted that when he at-
tacked holders of the bonds he was
not attacking t h e "racketeering
banksters" but was attacking the
"whole American people."
"And when you say that there are
only some $46 of currency per capita
in the country," the letter went on,
"and talk about a famine of money,
-what about bank deposits, savings
accounts, and marketable securities?
"We have no famine of money, -
we have a maldistribution of wealth.
Making two dollars out of one dollar
will not cure the maldistribution of
wealth. It will not enrich the poor
any more than calling six inches a
foot will make you any taller. You
will be twelve feet of high instead
of six, but you will not be able to
reach what is out of your reach now."

Similar Co-Operative Has
Saved $2 Per Man Each
Month At Wisconsin
Application for membership in the
Fraternity Buyers Co-Operative, a re-
cently formed campus organization
which is being sponsored by the In-
terfraternity Council, will be received
at the council meeting to be held at
8 p.m. today at the Union.
Questions concerning the plan will
be answered by Rolf E. Darbo, buyer
for.a similar organization at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, who has been
brought from Madison by the council
to help the new organization get
The method of operation of the co-
operative, as explained in the pros-
pectus, "shall be to ascertain the
needs of its member chapters, then

chants, preferably local, for the pur-
chaseiand delivery of these com-
modities and services."
Wisconsin Successful

Fraternity Buyers
Group At Meeting

The savings at the University of
Wisconsin has been shown to be
more than $2 per man per month,
Mr. Darbo declared yesterday,'citing
the fact that the organization at
Wisconsin has grown in membership
from 10 chapters last year to more
than 20 during the current year. The
term of the agreements by which
houses join has been renewed for a
three year .period, he. said, showing
increased confidence in the plan.
Sororities, professional fraternities,
and other similar groups have been
invited to send delegates to tonight's
meeting to hear Mr. Darbo discuss
the plan. Applications will be re-
ceived from all groups, and accept-
ance will dependt solely upon the
credit standing of the applicants.
"The co-operative will be able to
afford to analyze all products which
are under scrutiny because it will be
buying in large quantities," Mr. Dar-
bo said. "The large quantities bought
will enable the co-operative to gain'
its low prices.
"An improvement of the credit
standing of the houses in general is
the result of such action, and should
be hailed with relief by the local
merchants," he continued.
Not Radical Change
The profits which will accrue froih
operating the organization will be ap-
plied to the members' accounts on a
pro rata basis figuring in the amount
of business which has been trans-
acted through the organization, the
plan states.
The establishment of the new plan
includes no radical change in the
present set-up of fraternity manage-
ment, except that the stewards will
not have to determine which of the
wholesalers he shall buy from, it has
been explained. The association will
do that for him, eliminating un-
necessary duplication of services, un-
necessary deliveries of goods, and
other expensive features of the status
quo. n
Among the houses in the member-
ship of the Wisconsin co-operative
are the Madison chapters of the fol-
lowing fraternities: Alpha Chi Sigma,
Alpha Delta Phi, Alpha Tau Omega,
Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Chi Psi, Delta
Kappa Epsilon, Kappa Sigma, Phi
Delta Theta, Phi Gamma Delta, Pi
Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon,
Sigma Phi, Theta Delta Chi, Tri-
angle, Zeta Tau, and Sigma Chi.

The conditions under which beer

A. Bursley told members of the
Adelphi House of Representatives last
night. This statement was in answer
to a question concerning the dean
of students' opinion onibeer east of
Division Street.
Dean Bursley was guest speaker at
the organization's last meeting of the
semester in the Adelphi Room, An-
gell Hall. The honor system, schol-
arships, University rules and "pater-
nalism," the traditions and spirit of
Michigan, the obligation of a student
to his University and the advantages
he receives from it, were all discussed
by Dean Bursley in his informal talk
on "The Relation of the Student to
the University."
"Paternalism is all bosh," he said,
discussing the rules the University
imposes. "As a matter of fact, it
seems to me there are very few rules;
