By BENJAMIN W. WHEELER
(Of the History Department)
The separation of Austria from
Germany is a relatively recent acci-
dent of history. It was the result of
Bismarck's ambition to secure for
Prussia a position in German affairs
equal to that of Austria. Only the
failure of attempts to solve the sit-
uation by effecting a division of Ger-
man leadership between the two
states determined him in 1866, to cut
Austria off from the currents lead-
ing toward German national unifi-
cation. Prior to the dissolution in
that year of the German Confereda-
tion, Austria had served for some
thousand years as outpost of Ger-
man civilization against Magyar,
Slav, and Turk. In the 16th and 17th
centuries Austria emerged from the
role of defender into that of con-
queror. The Turks had been thrust
back; Magyars (Hungarians) and a
considerable element of South Slavs
had become her subjects. This, to be
sure, tended to divide the interest of
her rulers between German and east-
ern affairs.
German Rulers
From the end of the 13th century
these rulers were members of the
German house of Habsburg. From the
15th century onward until 1806 these
princes regularly bore the imperial
title. Tenuous though the rights of

this office were its possession never-
theless marked them as first among
the German princes. In the expulsion
of Napoleonic dominion from Ger-
man soil the Austrian people and
their sovereigns playedna part second
to none. In the diet of German con-
federation after 1815, the Austrian
representative was accorded the right
to preside. It is not surprising that,
at the time of the dissolution of the
Habsburg monarchy in October of
1918, the German speaking popula-
tion of Austria should not have been
deterred by the ephemeral experience
of half a century, from regarding it-
self as a part of the German nation
'in a political as well as a cultural
sense. f
Austrian Republic
The designation Austria as here
employed refers to the territory in-
cluded in the present day Austrian
republic. This republic embodies the
German speaking elements of the
old Habsburg monarchy, minus a
population of some three and a half
millions in Bohemia and Moravia,
now included in Czechoslovakia,
minus the German population of
South Tyrol, now under Italian dom-
inion, and plus a small section of
territory, formerly subject to the
Hungarian crown, now the eastern-
most possession of the Austrian re-
public.
With the dissolution of the Aus-
trian monarchy in 1918 the various
non-German racial elements were
permitted to unite within themselves,

SCA Speaker Is
Experienced In
Social Problems
In his speech .on "Christ and the
World Crisis," to be delivered at 8
p. m. today in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre under auspices of the Stu-
dent Christian Association, Charles
Stelzle will present his views which
have evolved from a long career as a
sociologist, publicist, and a worker
in religious enterprises.,
Born in New York's Bowery dis-
trict, Mr. Stelzle offers a parallel
to such other typically American fig-
ures as Edward Bok and Jacob Riis.
After an early period spent in fac-
tory work, he has advanced to be-
come an outstanding commentator
on social and economic questions.
Best known among his scores of
activities is his appointment as "Di-
rector of Relief and Emergency
Measures" of New York City.
Opera Director Is
Pleased With Gast
4fter 2 Rehearsals
Six feet one inch, 195 pounds of
muscle, a two day's growth of whis-
kers, and a look that would stop an
eight-day clock - that's a description
of one of the aspirants for a chorus
girl part in the Opera Union as he
appeared at dance and voice tryouts
yesterday afternoon.
But he wasn't alone- they came in
droves and herds, willing to take their
punishment as the directors prompt-
ed with "one, two, three- one, two,
three," or "sing that number again,
will you?" In the voice tryouts it
developed that the only song unani-
mously known by the embryonic in-
genues and company was "Sweet
Sue," and said tune was consigned to
its rightful grave at the end of the
afternoon, a martyr to a noble cause.

Boys Will Be Boys'
Says Beer Garden
Owner After Party
Sheriff's officers answering an
emergency call early yesterday morn-
ing at the Black and Tan, a beer
garden west of Ann Arbor on the
River road, found the place devoid
of customers and the proprietor sur-
veying the wreckage.
According to reports the fight
started when one of a party of ten
students made a remark to a dancer
in the floor show. The offending stu-
dent was hurled to the floor beneath
the piano, and a general melee be-
gan with about 40 of the customers
using chairs and fists for weapons.
The students, after being thrown
out of the building, hurled bricks
through all the front facing windows,
and then retreated as the outraged
proprietor opened fire from a second
story windowrwith a shot gun. The
proprietor fired five times without
hitting anyone, as the students dis-
appeared in a cab.
By the time the officers appeared
on thescene all the customers had
disappeared. None ofthe partici-
pants of the brawl were identified.
Daily Business
Tryouts Called
For Tomorrow
A call to all second semester fresh-
men interested in business staff work
on The Daily to report for a pre-
liminary meeting at four p. m. to-
morrow afternoon at the Student
Publications Building, Maynard
street, was issued yesterday by W.
Grafton Sharp, '34, business mana-
ger.
Sharp explained that business work
is an excellent opportunity to gain
experience in keeping accounts, sell-
ing advertising, and laying out ad-
vertisements. Tryouts will assist in
selling contracts and reading proofs.

New Literary

To Publish Faculty
And Student Writing
First Issue Is To Appear
Next Month If Enough
Subscribers Appear
Plans for a campus critical and
literary magazine, to be called the
Inland Review, have been formulated
and a drive for a student subscrip-
tions is now to be launched.
The magazine will be open to any
writer, andi will include not only
poetry and "creative" prose, but
also expository, critical, or contro-
versial articles and symposia on any
subject of general interest, such as
politics, education, art, anthropology,
and aesthetics.
Writing which has been submitted
to the Hopwood contests will be pub-
lished, and reviews, of books, cinema,
music, drama, and painting are to be
written. Any student or faculty
niember is entitled to submit manu-
scripts, which, if judged satisfactory,
will be published.
Advance Circular
An advanc] circular which was
sent to all members of the University
faculty has met with good response
in subscriptions, according to Arthur
M. Coon, Grad., who will edit the
magazine. The subscription price
is one dollar for as many issues as are
to be published.
"The success of the venture," Coon
stated, "is dependent upon the num-
ber of persons who are enough in-
terested in seeing such a magazine
established at Michigan to contribute
a dollar."
Subscriptions should be sent to the
Inland Review, 1024 Hill St. or in
care of the English Office, 3221 An-
gell Hall. The first issue will be pub-
lished next month if the'response is
sufficient, Coon said. Any student
who,. cannt afford a Subscription
right now may feel free to send a
post-dated check.
Endorsed by Faculty
While the publication will have
no official connection with the Uni-
versity, all contributors will be from
that body. Among those who have
endorsed the project and who have
been early subscribers are Prof. Pres-
ton W. Slosson of the history de-
partment, Dean Edward H. Kraus
of the literary college, Prof. Bennett
Weaver of the English department,

Women To Vote
Tomorrow Nioht

On Late Hours
House votes on the question of
late permission for seniors will be
taken on in the women's residences
tomorrow night. The results will be
reported at the meeting of the Board
of Representatives, which is to be
held at 4 p. m. Tuesday in the
League.
Previous legislation has narrowed
the question down to whether seniors
should have 1:30 a. m. permission
on Saturday nights. It may also be
decided that only seniors receiving a
C average will be given the privi-
lege.
If the rule for senior privileges
should be passed by the Board of
Representatives, it will not be final,
according to Ruth Robinson, '34,
chairman of the Board. It must
then be passed on by the Board of
Representatives, and with its appro-

AnAppeal
An initiative petition is now being circulated by the Citi-
zens' Charter Amendment Repeal Committee to wipe out the
present discriminatory ban on the sale of beer and light wines
in the area East of Division Street.
Approximately 1,300 signatures of registered voters of
this city are necessary to have the East Side beer question sub-
mitted to the electorate at the Spring Election to be held on
April 2.
The Daily unqualifiedly urges you to sign this petition,
if you are a registered voter. We feel that once the question
is brought to a vote, those favoring sale of beer and light
wines on State Street will show themselves to be well in the
majority.
If the 1,300 signatures are not obtained, however, East
Siders - college students, faculty members, and townspeople
- must continue to drink beer on the West Side, where
drinking conditions are not as enticing as they might be.
Your signature on the petition signifies that you are dis-
satisfied with a moss-backed bit of legislation which puts the
stamp of sneakiness on beer drinking. Your signature is a
progressive gesture. Your signature shows, above all, that
you would rather see young people drink beer and light wines
in a favorable, near-campus, atmosphere, than in a wildcat
cafe like the "Black and Tan," where very recently students
and others were involved in a shameful row which brought
on a raid by sheriff's officers.
There is, as you would expect, an opposition of a kind
to repeal of the East Side Beer Ban. It is led by "Old Guard-
ers," and those whom General Johnson would dub "Witch
doctors and Tories.'
This minority clamors for retention of. the status quo.
They would rather see East Siders live in a falsified atmosphere
of sanctimony. They favor a sort of anti-beer stratosphere,
where the air is "pure" and where men who attend the Uni-
versity can not be "corrupted."
Here are some of their more common objections to
repeal of the East Side Beer Ban. To the objections we have
appended our refutations.
Opponents of East Side beer and light wines say:
1. "It will corrupt the high school student.".
This is not so. The State Liquor Control Bill provides
that no person who has not attained the age of 18 years shall
be privileged to buy beer or light wines. Thus the great
majority of high school students are cared for -they simply
can't buy beer. Those high school students who are over 18
are, in the judgment of the State Legislature, old enough to
guard their own "morals." The age of 18 was chosen by

Urged Not To Sign
New Amendment Will Not
Bring Back Saloon; On-
ly Beer, Light Wines
By A. ELLIS BALL
A drive to bring beer and light
wines back again to the campus area
got under way yesterday as petitions
for the repeal of the East of Divi-
sion Street charter amendment were
printed and circulated throughout
the city by the Citizens Charter
Amendment Repeal Committee.
The petitions will be circulated
throughout Monday and the early
part of Tuesday. . They will be due
in the office of Fred Perry, city clerk,
before 4 p. m. Tuesday, and will re-
quire approximately 1,300 names of
qualified Ann Arbor voters.
Name Committee
The repeal committee, headed by
Norman F. Kraft, chairman and di-
rector of the drive, is composed of,
the following citizens: Prof. Robert
C. Angell of the sociology depart-
ment; Benjamin Wheeler of the his-
tory department; Prof. Arthur Van
Duren of the German department;
Lieut. Richard R. Coursey of the
R.O.T.C.; Dr. D. E. Standish, local
dentist; Dr. Harold M. Dorr of the
political science department; C. H.
Beukema, Ann Arbor correspondent
for the Detroit Free Press;- ibr
E. Bursley, president of the Under-
graduate Council; Thomas K. Con-
nellan, managing editor of The
Daily; Del Pfrommer, secretary of
the University of Michigan Repub-
lican Club; and Guy M. Whipple,
Jr., of the Vanguard Cub.
The petitions may be found at any
of the business places in the State,
South University, and P a c k, a r d
Streets sections. They are also at
the offices of The Daily on Maynard
Street.
Warn Students
The committee members ask that
anyone who can collect a number of
names to call Kraft at 8942 today or
4925 tomorrow or Tuesday. Students
who are not residents nor qualified
city voters are warned not to sign
" the petitions as all such signatures
would be void.
The proposed amendment, in the
event it is passed by a three-fifths
vote of the people, will not bring
back the saloon or hard liquor to
any section of the city. It merely
hopes to bring beer and light wine"
back to well-controlled places in the
campus area where it is now banned
by the charter provision.

Student With Capacity Of
Seven Quarts Is First
Customer
The stroke of ten from the city
hall clock sounded the death knell
for Ann Arbor's 15 years of prohibi-
tion, as the door of the. State Liquor
store was opened yesterday morning
to admit the ten persons who were
on hand for the event.
The first customer was a student
who purchased seven quarts of whis-
key. Despite the small attendance at
10 a. in., the number in the store had.

swelled to 50 by 10:15 a. m., and
throughout the rest of the morning
there were at least 25 customers in
the store at a time.. The 'real rush
came in the afternoon when the stu-
dents began to desert the campus
for more pleasant environs. During
the entire afternoon there were well
over 100 customers milling about the
store,
At no time were there any disor-
derly actions on the part of the cus-
tomers, and the store personnel func-
tioned perfectly to answer the varied
requests for the 200 different brands
in stock.

By WILLIAM G. FERRIS
Old John Barleycorn, who was
buried to ! these many years ago by
the fine citizens of Ann Arbor, kicked
off the dirt, gave himself a few
shakes, and appeared back among
his friends yesterday, looking quite
hale and hearty and none the worse
for his harrowing experiences during
the past 15 years.
The place of reincarnation was 113
West Huron street, and a good crowd
of well wishers was present to see
John back once again. He appeared
legally, under the benign sanction
of the State Liquor Control Commis-
sion. And he was welcomed back
not merely because he is good com-
pany but also because he is a finan-

prices, and all qualities. And this
reporter, who was assigned to give
the really low down on whether it is
good liquor or bad (so as to save all
of your stomachs) can report about
as follows:
Old Crow whisky has a nice bottle
and a clever label and is worth, on
the basis of rating new movie shows,
about two stars. Glen MacGregor,
which is a swell name if nothing
else, deserves three stars for the
plaid background on the label. A
sea serpent came out of this bottle.
Then there is Sandy McNab's Own
Liqueur-say about three stars and a
little brownie who sat on the other
side of the table and made funny
faces. Park and Tilford Private

Closing the League for Industrial
Democracy series of six lectures spon-
sored by the Michigan Vanguard
Club, J. B. Matthews, leader in So-
cialist and peace movements, will ex-
plain "The Aims of Socialism" at 8
p. m. tomorrow in Natural Science
Auditorium.
The five preceding lectures, the
first by Norman Thomas and the last
by Jennie Lee, former member of
the British Parliament, have analyzed
the American scene and examined the
European and Asiatic situations.
In his summary of these speeches,
Mr. Matthews will seek to show that

he was chairman of the First Inter-
national Youth Leaders' Council.
Reviewing the international Social-
ist movement, Mr. Matthews will
draw from experiences in his travels,
He has been twice around the world
and has visited Europe seven times
sinces the War, including three visits
to the Soviet Union. Born in Ken-
tucky, he is not a stranger to any
part of the United States. During the
past year alone he spoke in half the,
states in the union, getting first-hand
information on the workings of the
U. S. economic system during the de-
pression, and the effects of the NRA.
