Professors T o
Advise About'
Liquor Control
Angell, Dawson Chosen
As U. Of M. Delegates
To State Conference
Ruthven Declines
To Attend Meetings
Legislative Council Said
To Favor Quebec Type
Hard Liquor Control
Answering a request of the legisla-
tive council from Lansing, President
Alexander G. Ruthven last night
named a committee of two to go to
'theState capitol and present its
views concerning the control of hard
liquor traffic in Michigan after the
repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment.
The committee is composed of Prof.
Robert G. Angell of the sociology de-
partment, and Prof. John P. Daw-
son of the law school. These two
men, with the assistance of Prof. Er-
win Nelson of the pharmacy college,
Prof. Nathan Sinai of the medical
school, and Harold Smith of the
Michigan Municipal League, have
been holding informal discussions on
the liquor control subject since July.
The original request of the legis-
lative council was for the presence of
President Ruthven, but he declined
to go because, he said, he did not be-
lieve he had enough knowledge on
the topic.
"I believe it is a matter for expert
opinion," President Ruthven said last
night, "and this informal committee
has given the matter considerable
thought. The question is one which
will not be settled by sentiment, and
these men are more qualified on the
matter than I."
Professor Angell, who has headeda
the committee in its discussions, last
night would not say at what conclu-
sion the group has arrived. He said
he preferred to wait until returning
from Lansing, after seeing how the
legislative .coucil received the sug-
gestions he and his colleagues had
to make, before announcing what he
considered the best plan for liquor
control in Michigan.
The council at which the Univer-
sity committee is to present its views
is reputedly in favor of the Quebec
system of state control of hard liquor
sales, but is endeavoring to get a
cross-section of liberal and c serva-
tive opinion before going on with its

Nats Win, 4-0
WASHINGTON, Oct. 5.-()-The
prodigal baseball sons of Washing-,
ton celebrated their return to home
grounds today by shutting out the
New York Giants, 4 to 0, under the
combined inspiration of Earl White-
hill's great southpaw pitching and
the presence of the Nation's chief
Despite pre-game showers and a
chilly breeze that swept the field,
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, his
baseball sympathies somewhat di-
vided, joined a crowd of 30,000 over-

coated and befurred spectators in
watching the Senators snap out of
their World Series slump.
Due to weather more suited to
football than baseball, the game did
not approach a sell-out, but any dis-
appointment for the home club on
this account was eliminated by the
return to form of Joe Cronin's crew.
After being buffeted and completely
outplayed for two straight games, the{
Senators gave a dashing, peppery ex-
hibition on their own battleground.
They belabored Fat Freddy Fitzsim-
mons, the Giants' veteran knuckle-
baller, for a three-run lead in the
first two innings and then coasted
along confidently to their first victory
behind Whitehill's masterful eft-
handed strategy.

Falcone Brothers Rivals For
Seventh Time As Bands Meet

The outcome of the State game to-
mnorrow may be uncertain, but one
thing is sure-whichever band is tri-
umphant, it will be because its direc-
tor's name is Falcone.
The friendly rivalry of the brothers
Falcone has become a leading feature
of the traditional Michigan-M. S. C.
game, and is known all over the
country. Each is a leader in his field,
each is a musician of the first rank,
and each is certain he has the best
Prof. Leonard Falcone, director of
instrumental music at State, is not
only a star bandmaster, but is one
of the country's leading baritone
players. He has repeatedly turned
down offers to play with the fore-
most bands in the nation, preferring
to remain in East Lansing, but he has
appeared as a soloist with Gbld-
man's Band, the Detroit Municipal
Band, the University of Illinois bands,
and the Varsity Band here, as well
as with many other organizations of
equal repute.
Leading Baritonist
Leonard's early training, like that
of his brother, was received in his
native city, Roseto, Italy, in the con-
servatory of his fellow townsman,
Donato Donatelli, beloved maestro
and onetime conductor of the San
Carlos Grand Opera, the Neapolitan
Band, and the Roseto Band-the lat-
ter a favorite of King Umberto. His
rise in the ranks of noteworthy mu-
sicians was meteoric; at the age of
seven he began the study of the
French horn; at the age of nine he
appeared as soloist with a concert
band; at 10 he began woodwinds and
theory, and at 15 he began the study
of the baritone, which eventually be-
came his instrument.
When only 16, in 1915, Leonard em-
igrated to the United States, com-
ing directly to Ann Arbor, where he
obtained a position in a local theatre
orchestra. In 1918 he began the mas-
tery of the violin, and graduated in
1926 from the University School of
Music with an artist's diploma in that

instrument. In the fall after his grad-
uation he was appointed to the direc-
torship of the M. S. C. band, which
position he has held since, raising the
organization to its present position as
a leader in the military band ranks
of the United States.

Law Graduate
Shot By Police
In Auto Chase
Phyllis Johnson, '27,'33L,
Thought Police Were
Thugs; May Recover
DETROIT, Oct. 5-(Special)-Miss
Phyllis Johnson, graduate of the Uni-
versity of Michigan literary college
in 1927 and of the Law School in
1933, was in a serious condition in
Harper Hospital tonight as a result
of a gun wound inflicted by a De-
troit detective after a riotous auto-
mobile chase through Detroit streets
Wednesday night.
Hospital authorities said that Miss
Johnson, who is 28 years old and a
former resident of Ann Arbor, al-
though she now lives in Detroit, was
expected to recover.
Chief Assistant Prosecutor Gomer
Krise said that there would be no
prosecution of Detective George
Dempster, the man who fired the
shot, because "the shooting was pure-
ly accidental, and the officer cannot
be blamed."
The chase began after Miss John-
son, Miss Marion Costello, roommate
of Miss Johnson, and Harold Covert,
709 S. State Street, Ann Arbor, Uni-
versity of Michigan graduate of 1920
and owner of the car, left a cabaret
at Theodore and Beaubien streets.
The detectives said they asked Miss
Johnson, who was driving the car, to
stop, but she continued on, passing
several red lights. The police gave
chase and finally caugh&t the fleeing
car. Detective Dempster jumped on
Covert's auto. He alleges the car
jerked backward and his pistol went
off accidentally.
Miss Johnson says she did not stop
because she believed the police were
hold-up men. The police were dressed
in civilian clothes.

up to the present by the temporary
executive committee named after the'
death of Dean John R. Effinger.
On Aug. 9 and 10 the literary col-

up. It was approved by the Board
of Regents at their special meeting
held shortly after at the summer

Under the plan the executive func-
tions of the college are under the
control of the dean assisted by an
executive committee... The special
functions of the latter are to inves-
tigate and formulate instructional
policies to b'e presented to the fac-
ulty, to act for the college in affairs
of the budget, and to make appoint-
ments and promotions.
Members are appointed for three
year terms, but the personnel of the
present body is made up of those ap-
pointed for one, two, and three year
terms, so that permanence and ro-
tation may be assured.
Members of the committee may
not be reappointed to the body until
one year after the expiration of a
term. It is expected that this will
insure' spreading out of the member-
ship from term to term.

Murder Trial
Deferred By
The case of George D. Reed, ex-
fireman accused of murder, was de-
ferred to the December term of court
shortly before noon yesterday by
Judge George W. Sample who de-
clared the case a mistrial. The ac-
tion was brought about when more
than 300 spectators made a demon-
stration of sympathy in favor of the
The disturbance in the courtroom
was the result of the statement made

by Mrs. Etta Jordan, Detroit, witness
for the defense. After she had stated
that Mrs. Reed, the m u r d e r ed
woman, had forced Mr. Jordan at the
point of a gun to write a letter to
the Detroit friend of the court, Pros-
ecutor Albert J. Rapp asked her if
she had reported this to the police,
and then added "You couldn't have
been bothered very much, were you?"
"No I wasn't," answered Mrs. Jor-
dan. "If I could have got there first
Mr. Reed wouldn't have had to do
the job." The courtroom was imme-
diately thrown into a state of great
disturbance by the applause and
cheers of the spectators. Court offi-
cer John Flynn attempted to remove
those making the most noise, but
Judge Sample ordered him to clear
the entire court, and criticized the
witness for her statement.
After the clearing of the court-
room Judge Sample ordered a recess.
When court resumed, a motion for
mistrial was placed before the court
by Edward Conlin, defense attorney.
The motion was granted by Judge
Sample who said that he did not

At the banquet held last night in
the Union ballroom one of the prin-
cipal addresses was delivered by Er-
nest M. Fisher, professor of real e-
tate management here. He spoke on
the "English System of Real Estate
Taxation." In his speech he outlined
the English system as compared to
the one in general use in the United

fallacies in the English system which
would prevent it from being a suc-
cess in this country.

Forestry Club To
Make Annual Trek
For Fall Campfire
The foresters are donning their
top-bots and going out to conquer
- not spruce bud worms - but roast-
ed steaks. Once again the Annual
Campfire of the Forestry Club held
every fall since 1906 and featuring
everything from unprintable forest
songs to takeoffs on the Forestry
School faculty is scheduled to take
place. The rendezvous is at Sag-
inaw Forest, Three Sister's Lake, at
5:30 p. mn. and the committee in
charge is Blair Hutchison '34, Char-
les F. Mony, '34, and Carl Holcomb,
'34. The arrangements are the entire
responsibility of the Forestry Club.
The program, according to experi-
enced foresters who oughtto know,
will consist largely of a rehashing
of old experiences in, and theories
about the forests. In this connection
it is suggested that every one bring
along his own ax to grind.
BlairtHutchison, chairman of the
committee, is the recent recipient of
the Professional School Scholarship
awarded by the Regents on the basis
of the student'sneed, scholarship,

Freshmen Will
Discuss Issues
At Round Table
Committee Heads Provide
Three Main Questions
For Consideration
Three questions of unusual inter-
est to college students will be dis-
cussed at the Sunday meeting of the
Freshman Round Table, it was de-
cided at a conference of committee
heads yesterday. The group of in-
terested Freshmen and undergrad-
uates will meet at 9 a. m. at the
League for breakfast and will divide
for discussion at 9:30 into eight
groups under the direction of selected
graduate and undergraduate advisers.
The questions, "Does the world
want a trained man?" "Is democ-
racy dead?" and "Can there be a
planned world society?" will be con-
sidered in their various phases for
the next three Sunday meetings in
accordance with the Round Table
plan of hearing a noted faculty au-
thority on the first meeting of each
month and discussing the questions
raised on the remaining Sundays.
Prof. Roderick McKenzie of the so-
ciology department addressed a large
group Oct. 1, on "The Changing
World," the topic selected as the nuc-
leus of the semester's group talks.
The group sponsored by the Student
Christian Association, the Council
of Religion, and the social board of
'the League is intended primarily for
first year men and women, but is also
open to any upperclassmen who are
interested in talkingdover problems
of interest to the modern world.
League authorities have set aside
separate rooms for each discussion
group. The students who will meet
with Morton Wagner, Grad., will
meet after breakfast in the Garden
Room; those under Jack Weisman,
'34, will gather in the Rehearsal
Room; the theatre lobby has been set
aside for students working with
Charles Orr, Grad.; Margaret French,
Grad., will meet with her group in

The committee in charge of the
project have secured Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department;
Prof. Bennett Weaver, of the English
department; and Prof. Leroy Water-
man, of the Oriental Languages and
Literature department, as speakers in
the next three months' central topics.

to the rushing rules.
Fraternities have been warned by
officials of the Interfraternity Coun-
cil that no violations of the silence
period will be tolerated, special at-
tention having been called to the fact
that alumni are considered "mem-
bers," and are therefore prohibited
from contacting any new students
during the period of silence, which
began at 8:30 p. m. yesterday.
"This is a very important period
in rushing," Bethel B. Kelley, '34,
president of the council, declared last
night, "and any infractions of the
rules will be severely dealt with by
the Judiciary Committee." Telephone
calls between rushees and fraternity
men are absolutely prohibited by the
rushing rules, according to Kelley.
The committee feels that the re-
sponsibility of living up to the rules
rests as much with the rushees as
Freshmen have been asked by
officials of the council to be sure
to have some responsible person

left unless there is some one to
receive them.
with the houses, it was pointed out
by Maxwell T. Gail, '34, chairman of
the committee, and will consider this
point in punishing any violations.
The attention of all rushees and
fraternities has been called to the
typographical error in Section 2,
Article 3 of the rules, which should
read, "After the aforementioned
pledging Monday, any rushee not in-
eligible as provided in these rules
may be rushed and pledged at any
The only change from the rushing
rules in force last year is the addi-
tion of the second sentence of Sec-
tion 2, Article 2 of the rushing rules,
which reads in full as follows: "Any
rushee who receivesaa bid from a
fraternity and does not turn in a
preference list shall be ineligible to
pledge any fraternity until the be-
ginning of the second semester of the
same academic year. No rushee turn-
ing in a preference list shall be elig-
ible during the first semester to
pledge any house not on his list."
These rules have been arranged so
as to make obligatory on the fresh-
man to pledge Monday in the reg-
uar way or wait until the beginning
of the second semester, according to
officials of the council.
