Angell, Smith
Offer Liquor
Control Plan
Committee Adjourns As
Hotels Want Right To
Sell ByBottle, Glass
Local Option Is
Included In Plan
Angell Proposes To End
Bootlegging By Taxation
And Coitrol By Law
LANSING, Oct. 6-(P)-Hear-
ings before the legislative coun-
cil's sub-committee shaping a
liquor control statute stood ad-
journed today until Oct 16, fol-
lowing a demand from hotels
thtsthey be allowed to sell all
forms of liquors.
Representatives of the Michi-
gan Hotel Man's Association ex-
pressed opposition 'to the Quebec
plan of state-owned stores and
urged that hotels be permitted
to sell liquor either by the glass
or bottle.
A three-part plpn for the control
of liquor according to alcoholic con-
tent in Michigan after repeal of the
Eighteenth Amendment was pre-
sented at a hearing before a sub-
committee of the Legislative Coun-
cil by two members of an informal
committee from the University yes-
terday at. the State capital.
Concluding the first of a series of
hearings concerned with the control
of intoxicating' liquor, Prof. RobertI
C. Angell of the sociology depart-I
ment and Harold D. Smith, directorI
of the Michigan Municipal League,I
discussed the proposed plan with ther
° sub-committee, headed by Rep. Carlc
F. Delano, of Kalamazoo.
While it is too early to form any,
definite plan to control the sale andc
distribution of liquor, the report of
the informal committee was pre-i
sented in the form of a number ofl
"It seems to us the best basis of1
regulation is the percentage of alco-
hol," Professor Angell said yesterday.,
For that reason beverages were di-c
vided into three groups according tot
to alcoholic content.
First Comprises Beer
The first group, he said, would in-
clude liquor up to 5 per cent by vol-
ume, which would comprise beer.
This would make it possible to sellt
beer 1 per cent stronger than it is
now legally sold. The committee be-
lieves that it could be sold as safely
as at present - to licensed vendors
in establishments approved by con-1
trolling authorities.I
In the next group fall wines,-heavyt
ales, and stout, with alcoholic con-t
tent placed between 5 and 23 or 25z
per cent. A law governing this group
would permit hotels, restaurants, andt
clubs to sell the liquor only with
"bona fide" meals. I
"We suggest that they might sellr
cocktails and high-balls under 23 or
25 per cent with meals," Professort
Angell explained, "provided the liq-
uor is out of a bottle and already di-
luted below the specified content."l
Licenses for the sale of wine and ale
would be given out at the discretion
of the local governing body.
Plan State .Stores1
Relative to home consumption of
the second group, Professor Angell
and Mr. Smith suggested that the

bottled beverages be sold at either
State-owned liquor stores or in drug
stores. The committee would, how-
ever, put no restrictions on the
amount of beer sold, or the places
of distribution.
The third class would, according
to the plan, comprise all liquors above
25 per cent, including distilled spiritsc
such as whiskey, gin, and brandies.{
Rigid rules would govern the sale and
consumption of these liquors. TheI
committee has suggested a quota sys-
tem whereby license cards, limiting
each card holder to 12 quarts a
month, would be issued to adults.
The plan would specify that every1
consumer buy his beverages from ther
nearest State-owned store.
The stores, Professor Angell stated,1
would be run on a high-class, social
welfare basis. In charge would bel
men who were not only businessmen,
but men guarding the welfare of the
community. These men, at the dis-
cretion of the police or the schools,
would have the power to reduce the

At Gamge Today
State Band To Arrive At
10 A.M.; Parades Down-
town Before Contest
Under the baton of its new drum-
major, Donald A. Strouse, '35, Mich-
igan's 100-piece Varsity Band will
swing down State Street to the stirr-
ing bars of "The Victors" shortly
after 1 p. m. today.
Strouse will take formal command
of the band a few minutes before the
kickoff in the Stadium, in a brief
military ceremony announced yester-
day. A feature of his appearance will
be the first public display of the new
Michigan drum-major's uniform-
black calfskin Royal Life Guards
boots; white breeches; blue blouse
with gold buttons, aiguillettes, and
citation cords, and white shako.
The "Fighting Hundred" will
march down State Street to the Sta-
dium a few paces ahead of Michigan
State's smaller but just as snappy
military band, under the direction of
Prof. Leonard Falcone, who is the
brother of Prof. Nicholas D. Falcone,
Michigan's bandmaster. At the sta-
dium the two organizations will pa-
rade before the game and each will
occupy eight minutes of the time be-
tween halves.
EAST LANSING, Oct. 6.-(Special)
-Michigan State College's khaki-
coated military band, 60 strong, will
step from its buses at the Ann Arbor
City Hall at 10 a. m. tomorrow for
its annual invasion of the territory
of the University of Michigan Band.
Opening its seventh football season
under the direction of Prof. Leonard
Falcone, brother of the U. of M.
bandmaster, the State band will pa-
rade to Morris Hall, headquarters of
the Michigan band, by the following
route: East Huron Street to Main to
William to Maynard toaEast Liberty
to State to Morris Hall, corner of
State and East Jefferson streets.
Though it numbers only slightly
more than half the size of Michigan's
"Fighting Hundred," the M.S.C. band
is expected to give its rival superior
competition. Essentially a military
band-it is a unit of the state col-
lege regiment of the R.O.T.C.-Leon-

a name for itself throughout the Mid-
West for its precise drilling and for-

be renewed this year, as is traditional,
the weekend of the annual fall home-
coming, which has been set for Oct.
21, the date of the Ohio State- Mich-
igan football game.
Previously planned and supervised
by the now non-existent student
council, the games this fall have been
transferred from the jurisdiction of
the new Undergraduate Council to
that of the Union, and plans are now
forming under the general supervi-
sion of the co-operative committee.
Events scheduled for Saturday
morning, Oct. 21, so far include four
that have always been among the
best memories of the "old grads," and
include the flag rush, in which men
of the class of '37 attempt to cap-
ture the flag which is defended by
members of the second year class, the
cane spree, pillow fight, and hog
tying contest.
In the latter each class has a hog
pen for its base and from it they
advance, rope as many of their oppo-

By Commerce Secretary
To Draw Up Legislation
NEW YORK, Oct. 6.-(/P)-The
shadow of Federal regulation again

fell over the New York Stock Ex-
change today with the formation of
a committee, at the suggestion of
President Roosevelt, to consider
drawing up legislation for submis-
sion to Congress.
In confirming the selection of the
committee, A. A. Berle, who was ac-
tive fn drawing up emergency legis-
lation passed by Congress last spring,
acknowledged that he would serve as
a member of the group, but that the
news of its formation had "leaked
out" prematurely, and that he could
not discuss its work at this time.
The committee was selected at the
President's request by Commerce Sec-
retary Roper, and in addition to Pro-
fessor Berle, includes Arthur H. Dean,
member of the well-known Wall
Street law firm of Sullivan and
Cromwell; John Dickinson, assistant
secretary of commerce; Dean Ache-
son, under-secretary of the treasury,
and Arthur J. Richardson, Washing-
ton lawyer. Mr. Dean acknowledged
that he had been bound to secrecy
and could not discuss the work.

BIRMINGHAM, England, Oct. 6.-
(P)--Dissatisfaction with the govern-

brought into the open again today
in the annual conference of the Con-
servative party, but an attempt of
the die-hard faction to so put the
party on record was snowed under in
a ballot test.
Disagreement with the govern-

Lord Wolmer introduced a resolution
which expressed doubts concerning
the efficiency and economy of some
of the suggested Indian reporms.
Among these is the turning over of
the Indian government to a legis-

League Board
Withdraws Old
Caucus Ruling
Members of the League Board of
Representatives yesterday withdrew
the ruling that has been in effect for
several years against caucusing in

women's elections. The ruling now
states, in effect, that caucusing will
be allowed for a period of one year
in any campus election for women.
The action was taken as a result of
the constant infractions of the law
at every election, according to Grace
Mayer, '34Ed, president of the

have been unable to cope with the
caucusing that was being done be-
fore each election, officials say.' This
measure is, in effect, an attempt to
make the elections fairer.

Michigan's hat is in the ring again,
The Wolverines launch their defense
of a last season's national champion-
ship as they oppose the Spartans of
Michigan State College in the opener
at the Stadium this afternoon. The
contest will begin at 2 p. m.
M. S. C.'s eleven enters the game
as the underdog, due to lack of ex-
perience. The Maize and Blue eleven
will comprise entirely veterans; the
Spartans are in search of revenge
for a 26 to 0 drubbing taken at the
hands of the Wolverines last year.
Their season was unblemished save
for that defeat; the M. S.. C. outfit
entered that game as favorites.
Coach Harry Kipke put the squad
through a stiff drill on both offense
and defense yesterday afternoon on
South Ferry Field. State's aggrega-
tion, arriving yesterday noon, went
through a Workout in the Stadium
under the tutelage of-Coach Charles
Bachman, former Florida mentor who
this year took up the position at East
Lansing vacated by James Crowley.
Both starting lineups remained in
doubt last night, but information
from the Spartan camp stated that

Bill Renner and Louis Westover
were still being considered as starting
quarterbacks by Coach Kipke last
night, while Herm Everhardus and
Jack Heston will probably alternate
at left half. Kowalik and Hildebrand
are still fighting it out for the right
guard post, although Kowalik is likely
to get the call, owing to the fact that
Hildebrand may be needed to sub-
stitute for one of the tackles. Captain
Stan Fay and John Regeczi, star
punter, will compose the remainder
of the backfield.
The edge in this afternoon's battle
is given the Wolverines, largely be-
cause the Maize and Blue line is rated
over the Green forward wall, while
the Spartans are reported to be weak
in .punting.
Michigan State will continue the
use of the Notre Dame shift type
of offense, with emphasis expected
on the aerial phase of the game.
Michigan prbably will rely on end
runs and off-tackle drives for its run-
ning game, with considerable use of
lateral and forward passes expected.
