Beer Question Will


Major Issue In

Election Tomorrow

60 Percent Of Votes Cast
Are Needed To Repeal
Division Street Ban
City Officials Also
Are To Be Chosen
Heavy Vote Is Anticipated
On Campus Beer Fight;
Both Sides Confident
Ann Arbor will decide at the polls
tomorrow the question of beer sales
east of Division Street. Sixty per
cent of all votes cast are needed to
repeal the existing ban.
In addition to the major issue
coming before the electorate, a sec-
ond amendment and election of al-
dermen, supervisors, and constables
will be on the ballot.
Both wet and dry leaders were con-
fident of victory last night. Norman
F. Kraft, chairman of the executive
committee of the Citizens' Charter
Amendment Repeal Committee, pre-
dicted that the amendment would
.get at least a majority in every
ward in the city and a total well over
60 per cent.
Ald. Walter Sadler declared that
the amendment will be "snowed
Heavy Vote Anticipated
A heavy vote is anticipated in view
of the controversy that has raged
over the east side beer question since
last April, when beer became na-
tionally legal. The issue was finally
placed on the ballot by the City
The amendment affecting the!
East Side beer situation will not
indicate the nature of the ques-
tion, but will simply repeat the old
charter amendment with the 12
lines which established the east of
Division ban deleted. It .will. be the
first of the two amendments on
the ballot.
A vote of "yes" will mean the
elimination of the ban against the
sale of beer east of Division, and
a vote of "no" will leave the re-
strictions as they now exist.
Polling places will be open from
7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and are located
as follows: first ward, basement
of City Hall; second ward, ward
building, S. Ashley St. near Lib-
erty; third ward, ward building,
Miller Ave. near Spring St.; fourth
ward, basement of Armory, E. Ann
St. and N. Fifth Ave.; fifth ward,
ward building on Pontiac St.;
sixth ward, ward building on For-
est Ave.; seventh ward, first pre-
cinct, ward building on Mary St.;
seventh ward, second precinct, log
cabin at Burns Park.
Council after initiative petitions cir-
culated by the repeal group received
1,600 votes.
The east of Division ban against
the sale of alcoholic liquors dates
back to 1903, when it was initiated
by Bishop Edward Kelly, then pastor
of St. Thomas Catholicchurch, in
order to close up a dive' operating
on Fuller Street, north of the church
and school.
Despite a ruling from Atty.-Gen.
Patrick H. O'Brien that the State
beer bill in April, 1933, had repealed
the local geographical restriction, the
City Council refused beer licenses to
east side restaurants. Drug stores
were exempted by the old charter
Council Grants Vote
When the State liquor control act
was passed in December it was again
ruled by the attorney-general that
the ban had been repealed, but the
council has continued to maintain
the city's right to determine the mat-
ter, and following pressure on the
part of repeal groups, voted unani-
mously to allow a popular referen-

dum on the matter.
Aldermen will be elected tomorrow
in every ward, and supervisors will
also be named in all seven, although
candidates are unopposed in three.
Constables will be chosen in five
wards, with no opposition in any
Candidates for aldermen are:
First ward: F. W. Wilkinson,
(Rep.), Frederick Schmid (Dem.),
and Neil Staebler (Soc.).
Second ward: Harold Koch (Rep.),
D. C. Prochnow (Dem.), and Daniel
Jeannerette (Soc.).
Third ward: William Angell

Closing Hours For
Men To Be Subject
Of Farcical Debate
Should male students be forced to
come in at 10:30 p.m. on week
nights? Should they be made to sign
in and sign out? Should they rush
away from the last show on Sunday
night to get in on time?
These questions will be considered
by members of Alpha Nu, men's de-
bating club, and Zeta Phi Eta, na-
tional speech club for women in their
annual humorous inter-society de-
bate at 8 p.m. Wednesday in the
men's meeting room in Angell Hall.
Women speakers of Zeta Phi Eta
challenged Alpha Nu several weeks
ago to defend its rights in the ques-
tion: "Resolved, That the University
Should Adopt Closing Hours for Men
as Well as for Women," and the fem-
inine speakers upholding the affirma-
tive, will attempt to prove that man's
traditional prerogative should be
taken away from him.
Elizabeth Allen, '36, Marjorie Oost-
dyke, '36, and Reta Peterson, '35, will

Insull Defies
Commands To
Q u it Steamer
Relations Between Greece
And Turkey Strained As
Result Of Action
Greece Sends Note
To Turkish Police
U.S. Government Demands
Detention Of Insull At
ISTANBUL, Mar. 31.-(P)-Turkey
today ordered the arrest of Samuel
Insull, but he flatly refused a police
request that he quit his floating ha-
ven, the tramp steamer Maiotis, which
flies the flag of Greece.
The Turkish order followed a re-
quest by the United States Govern-
ment that Insull be arrested. But
Insull, apparently, clung to the hope
that the Greek flag would continue
to give him protection.
Complications in Turko-Greek re-
lations as a result of the incident
were feared in some quarters, for
Capt. Ioannis Mousouris, master of
the Maiotis, protested to the Greek
consul here against the detention of
his vessel in the straits of the Bos-
phorous, a "free" passage similar,
according to law, to the Danube.
It was even predicted that the
Greek Government might send a note
to the Turkish Government on the
The Turkish police "requested"
Insull to disembark and remain in
either a hotel or hospital pending
decision in his case.
Capt. Mousouris said that the police
had asked to put an agent in Insull's
cabin to prevent him from commit-
ting any desperate act, but that this
request had been refused, although a
police agent stayed continually on
guard in the corridor outside Insull's
ATHENS, Mar. 31-OP)-The Greek
Government today asked the lega-
tion at-Ankara, Turkey, to demand of
the Turkish Government what justifi-
cation it has for holding the Greek
S. S. Maiotis, Samuel Insull's haven.
This threat of international dif-
ficulties between Greece and Turkey
comes at a time when the two nations
have been particularly friendly. A
strong feeling nevertheless was evi-
denced here today that the Turkish
action in holding the Maiotis was un-
warranted and subject to criticism.
Mme. Couyoumjoglous, Mr. and
Mrs. Insull's close friend, whom police
questioned after Insull's departure,
was reported today aboard the S. S.
Bologna, due to reach Istanbul to-
The Rev. Alfred Lee Klaer, asso-
ciate pastor of the First Presbyterian
Church, in a letter to The Daily yes-
terday protested against the views
attributed to him in yesterday's issue,
clarifying his position by stating that
he is not in favor of serving beer in
the Union or at any place where stu-
dents are accustomed to eat.
He further stated that since he
opposes the sale of beer in any resi-
dential area, he is in favor of zon-
ing ordinances which would restrict
beer gardens to a downtown business

Fifth In


Mann Has Record Of Five
National And Seven Big
Ten Titles
Has Coached Team
Past Nine Years
Came To University In
1925 From Yale; Was
Born In England
Five National Collegiate cham-
pionships, seven Big Ten titles - all
in nine years, that's the record Matt
Mann has hung up as Varsity swim-
ming coach at Michigan.
When Mann came to Michigan in
1925 swimming had been a Varsity
sport for only one year. The team
was poor. In the first year under
Mann they took third in the Big Ten
- they have been first or second ever
Born in Leeds, England, 51 years
ago, Mann early established himself
as a distance swimmer of note, win-
ning the junior championship of
England, before coming to the United
States to take up his coaching duties
in eastern colleges and athletic clubs.
He coached at Yale, Navy, Maine,
and Brookline A. C. before moving
west to coach the Detroit A.C. swim-
mers in their heyday.
Today Mann ranks among the
coaches' "Big Three" of the swim-
ming world - others are Tom Robin-
son, Northwestern; and Bob Kiphuth,
of Yale.
Mann's coaching system is one of.
mass production of a myriad of good
swimmers rather than stressing the
development of a few good ones. That
is the reason why Michigan, year
after year, has strong relay teams
such as the ones that performed at
Columbus last night.
Yale and Southern California may
have a sprint star or two, but Mich-
igan always-has on hand four or five
sprinters who can team together to
form a championship relay outfit.
Guest Director
To Lead Varsity
Program~ To Be Offered
As Commemoration Of
Band's 75th Year
The first concert commemorating
the 75 years of the Varsity Band's
life will present to Ann Arbor music
lovers at 8:15 p.m. tomorrow in Hill
Auditorium a varied program of
classic and semi-classic numbers as
arranged for military band.
The band will be under the guest
direction of Prof. Leonard Falcone,
instrumental music director and
bandmaster at Michigan State Col-
lege. Prof. Joseph Brinkman of the
School of Music faculty, pianist of
the School of Music Trio, will play
a special transcription of Liszt's
"Hungarian Fantasy," as arranged
for piano and military band by Prof.
Nicholas D. Falcone, conductor of the
band, who is in New York City.
Two movements from Tschaikow-
sky's Symphony No. 6, the "Pathe-
tique," will be a feature of the pro-
gram. These will be the andante from
the first movement and the march
from the third. The "Love Death of
Isolde" (Isoldes Liebestod) from
Wagner's "Tristan und Isolde," is ex-
pected to be a popular number; it was
received with considerable favor at
the band's World's Fair concert in

October in Chicago.
Other numbers on the program are
as follows: the overture to Berlioz's
"The Roman Carnival"; the Cha-
conne from the "First Suite in E
flat," by Holst; and the four move-
ments of the ballet suite in Delibes'
The concert, one of the Faculty
Series, is open to the public and there
will be no admission charge.

Witness Of Cuban
Revolt Will Speak
Originally sent to Cuba by the Na-
tional Student League to attend a
general student conference in Ha-
vana, Walter Relis, who will speak
on "Students in the Cuban Revolu-
tion" at 8 p.m. Tuesday in Natural
Science Auditorium, was one of sev-
eral American students to observe the
Cuban revolution.
He attended student demonstra-
tions throughout Cuba, and several
times narrowly escaped when meet-
ings were fired on by soldiers.
Relis was arrested in Havana and
put in prison on January 11 for tak-
ing pictures of a demonstration of
E striking teachers. After being released
when a student delegation from the
Institute of Havana registered a pro-
test to the government, he was again
imprisoned several days later and re-
leased a second time January 23.
He is said to have seen the Cuban
revolution more closely than many
other observers due to his close
friendship with numbers of the em-
battled students.

LUMBUS, 0., March 31.-(W)---The
Wolverines of Michigan tonight pad-
dled their way to a fifth national in-
tercollegiate swimming championship
in the last nine years.
Michigan won handily, annexing 30
points, over Southern California, its
nearest competitor, with 18 points.
Yale and Washington finished in a
tie for third place, each with 15
points. Rutgers was next with 14, and
Illinois with 10. The remainder of the
field was well strung out.
Medica Gets 15 Points
The all around teamwork of Mich-
igan could not overshadow the indi-
vidual efforts of Jack Medica, Uni-
versity of Washington flash. Medica;
scored all of his team's points by tak-
ing three first places, setting one
world record and one N.C.A.A. mark.
Medica's performance of winning
three events was the second time this
has happened in the 11-year history
of the championship. Schwartz of
Northwestern won three races in the
Harvard pool in 1931.
The Washington man's world rec-
ord-breaking achievement came in
the 440-yard free style when he
turned in the remarkable time of
4:46.8. The holder of the old record,
Jim Gilhula of Southern California,
was forced to finish at Medipa's heels
tonight. Gilhula's mark was 4:48.6
and was made. September 31, 1933,
in the Detroit Athletic Club pool.
Breaks Four Records
When Medica paddled his way to
the world mark in the 440-yard free
style it was his fourth record-shat-
tering performance of the meet.
Yesterday he set a mark in the 1,-
500 meter swim and in the 440-yard
free style. Tonight he came back in
the 440 and then broke the N.C.A.A.
mark in the 220-yard free style by
going the distance in 2:13.2. The old
mark of 2:14.6 was held by Hapke
of Yale.
It was Dick Degener's performai:'A
in the high board diving that put the
meet on ice for Michigan. This blond
Detroit lad completely outclassed the
field to win his second consecutive
N.C.A.A. title. Tonight he rolled up a
total of 154.64 points. In the op-
tionals Degener duplicated dives at-
tempted by the other contestants and
bettered them at their own game.
Johnston, another Michigan man,
placed third.
30 Points-5 Events
Michigan piled up its 30 points in
five events, the 1,500-meter, the 440-
yard relay, the 150-yard backstroke,
fancy diving, and the 300-yard med-
ley relay.
It was the 220-yard free style race
that furnished the thrills for the 1,-
500 or so, and Medica and Jim Gil-
hula of Southern California, swim-
ming in adjoining lanes, matched
stroke for stroke until the last three
yards, when the Washington star put
on a powerful burst to touch the can-

Hessian Captains' Letters Give
Account Of Revolutionary War

(Associated Press Staff Writer)
Confidential information about the
American Revolution as written by
Hessian officers for Baron Friedrich
von Jungken, "especially high and
mighty general" and minister of war
of Hesse-Cassel, is being made avail-
able to American history scholars
through the efforts of Dr. Bernard
A. Uhlendorf, German script expert
at University of Michigan.
The Hessian manuscripts were ac-
quired two years ago by the William
L. Clements Library of American His-
tory after having been locked in a
trunk at Castle Hueffe, German
Westphalia, for nearly a century and
a half. They include 432 letters writ-
ten by 60 Hessian officers and 41
diaries and journals, in all about 4,-
000 pages of Eighteenth Century
German script.
Dr. Uhlendorf has translated those
documents which describe the siege

ebration four days before the most
important city of the southern col-
onies was surrendered? Staff Captain
Johannes Hinrichs believed they
"It was an intoxicated fire, for I
believe that the entire garrison was
drunk," Capt. Hinrichs wrote while
describing a furious cannonade, May
8, after the Americans broke off ne-
gotiations for surrender. The city
capitulated May 12.
Capt. Hinrichs wrote scathingly
concerning English military strategy.
"It is well known," he said in his
journal, "that the English are charg-
ed with heedlessness in military serv-
ice. Whether this be carelessness,
haughtiness and conceit, or con-
sciousness of their own greatness,
genuine pride, confidence in personal
strength, and the conviction of their
superiority over the enemy, I do not
care to decide. The fact remains that
it is there."


Dillinger Flees
St. Paul Police
After Gun Fray
ST. PAUL, Minn., March 31.-(P)
--John "the Killer" Dillinger, with a
sub-machine gun in his hand and a
big green sedan awaiting him, shot
his way out of a police trap today
and once more foiled the law.
Finger prints left behind as he fled
with a woman, believed wounded, and
a man, presumably one of the mem-
bers of his old gang, John Hamilton,
definitely established, authorities
said, that one of the trio was the
widely hunted desperado who broke
