By Onderdonk Today
Prominent members of the faculty
including President Ruthven, Dean
Kraus of the Literary College, Prof.
Preston W. Slosson, of the history de-
partment, and Prof. Daniel L. Rich
of the physics department have al-
ready signed a petition which will be
sent to Chancellor Dollfuss of Aus-
tria, protesting "in the name of hu-
manity" the methods which the Aus-
trian government is using to suppress
"the constitutional rights of a large
percentage of the Austrian popula-
"Although desiring to refrain from
interference in the affairs of a for-
eign country," the petition reads, "We
protest against the murder of women
and children by the armed forcs.
which wou are employing to retain
power and against the wholesale ex-
ecution, of. political prisoners." The
signers of the petition are "especially
indignant" concerning the attacking
of famed Vienna apartment build-
Sign In Registrar's Office $
At present a copy of the petition
may be signed in the Registrar's
office. Dr. Francis S. Onderdonk will
also have one at his lecture at 4:15
in the Natural Science Auditorium
today when he speaks on the "Aus-
trian Crisis." Dr. Onderdonk went to
school, and lived in Austria for a
number of years.
In connection with Dr. Onder-
donk's lecture today a group of pic-
tures of. Vienna's monuments and
municipal apartment houses is now
on exhibition i labby showcases of
the main Library. Several cases are
willed with views of the principal
churches, and buildings in Vienna. A
picture of the monument to the foun-
ders of the Social Democratic party
of Austria, which was recently stored
away by the government, is shown.
Cite Vienna's Progress
In the recent Vienna crisis the
world famous Karl Marx apartment
houses were attacked with artillery.
Many pictures, plans, and drawings
of this and other apartment build-
ings, which Vienna constructed to
lead the world in slum clearance
projects, are in the Library exhibit.
Over 150,000 of Vienna's population
are housed in buildings of this sort
as is evidenced in a large meap in-
luded in Dr. Onderdonk's display.
The Karl Marx building covers five
city blocks. It contains apartments
from three to five rooms in size, large
garden courts, gymnasiums, cafes,
laundries, baths, shops, and libraries.
The rents for an apartment in this
huge building which replaces the for-
mer slum districts range from two to
four dollars a month.

Detroit Symphony Orchestra when
it presents its annual Ann Arbor per-
formance as the ninth concert in thez
1933-34 Choral Union series at 8:151
p. m. today in Hill Auditorium.
Mr. Gabrilowitsch is a distin-
guished pianist as well as one of the
country's outstanding directors. The,
Detroit orchestra is one of the fore-
most of the nation's symphonies and
has long been a favorite with Ann
Arbor music-goers. This orchestra,
under Mr. Gabrilowitsch, has ap-
peared annually here since the in-
ception of the Choral Union series.
The program consists of four num-;
bers, included in which is Rachman-,
inoff's Second-Symphony in E Minor.
The presentation of this will enable
the concert-goers to hear a sym-
phonic composition of the great com-
poser-pianist who appeared in a solo
concert earlier this year.
In addition, selections will be given
from three of Richard Wagner's fa-
mous operas, "Tristan and Isolde,"
"Die Walkure," and "Tannhauser."
Favor Change
In Hours F'or
Senior Women
Board Of Representatives
Would Extend (losing
Hour On Saturday
The Board of Representatives of
the Women's ,self-governing body
voted yesterday to allow senior
women 1:30 a. m. permission on
Saturdays with a minimum restric-
tion based on scholastic standing.
.Out of the 38 houses represented 21
were in favor of no restriction at all,
and the remainder favored a scho-
lastic standing of a C average.
Although the board had previously
voted on senior privilege, yesterday's
meeting was in response to Dean
Alice Lloyd's suggestion to reconsider
the matter in the light of adminis-
trative difficulties in the large dormi-
tories. By confining all late senior
permissions to one night, instead of
distributing it throughout the week
as had been the previous vote, the
representatives believe that this will
not impair the present system of
night chaperoning.
Scholastic restrictions for seniors
were not approved by the board in
connection with the extra hour a
week because of the difference in
studying demands of the various
courses offered, and also the board
believed there should be some sort
of differentiation between privileges
of seniors and underclassmen.

Offer Three Plans
To Treat Offenders
Decide Further To Submitit
Resolution To S e n a c
The Undergraduate Council moved
yesterday to permanently prevent
scalping on the sale of class dance
tickets as two recent offenders were
punished and severe penalties were
provided for those found guilty of
selling tickets at a price higher than
face value in the future.
In the case of Sidney Frankel, '35,
and Frederick W. Hertrick, '35, con-
victed of scalping on J-Hop tickets,
the council decided to recommend to
the University discipline committee
that they be barred from extra-cur-
ricular activities for the remainder
of their college careers.
Gilbert E.Bursley, '34, president,
stated that henceforth all violations
coming before the council's discipline
committee will be considered and the
group will recommend one of three
It was decided that in the event
that a committeeman either scalped
on the sale of tickets or had knowl-
edge of such action, he should re-
ceive the maximum penalty, suspen-
sion from the University for the re-
mainder of the semester and re-en-
trance only on probation. Two fur-
ther punishments were laid down for
offenders by action of the council.
The first will be two weeks' suspen-
sion and probation for students who
scalp on more than one ticket, and
the second, probable probation only
for undergraduates selling a single
ticket to some other student.
The council further decided to
submit a resolution to the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs rec-
ommending a graduated price scale
for the sale of class dance tickets.
The recommendation asks that above
a certain number the charge shall
be increased one dollar on each 100
tickets. It was provided that the
surplus gained from this s y s t e m
should be contributed to a perma-
nent student good-will fund.
Rumors state that there has al-
ready been misconduct in the sale of
senior caps and gowns and canes.
Bursley w a r n e d that the council
would be on the lookout for such ac-
tion, and, if necessary, disciplinary
steps will be taken.

Modern university administration
has been cursed by the setting up
of two groups and staff members -
the administrative and the instruc-
tional, the report states, explaining
that the best interests of education
will be served if universities are op-
erated by closely knit organizations
of educators rater than by dual
staffs of instructors and executives.
Dr. Ruthven points out that the
need for dormitories for men stu-
dents here, one that has been long-
felt, brought an initial development
in the construction of the Lawyers
Club and the acquiring of Fletcher
Hall by the University.

Asks Opinions
On NRA In Talk
Invites Persons Who Have
Intelligent Criticisms To
Give Their Help
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 - (A") -
An appeal for criticism of the NRA
by letter or in personal appearance,
was made to the country tonight by
Hugh S. Johnson in a speech prefac-
ing general hearings beginning next
week in which operation of codes is
to be studied as a basis for re-mak-
ing administration policies.
"whether you are on the industrial,
The recovery administrator at-
tached just one condition, the NRA
will not, he said, receive "unsup-
ported personal assaults" and it will
take "a c a d micconjectures not
backed by facts only for what they
are worth."
'"We want your help," he said,
labor or consumers' side of the argu-
ment, tell us on Feb. 27, where the
codes are not working right, where
they bear unjustly on you, where
they could be improved. Cometo
Washington to engage in the dis-
cussion, if you can. Write to us
giving us facts and figures if you
can't come."
Johnson termed his message the
most important one from NRA since
last summer's blue eagle campaign
appeal. He spoke over a combined
network of the National and Co-
lumbia radio chains.
Mistakes and flaws in codes were
admitted freely by the administra-
tor, who pointed out how hastily his
organization was thrown together,
started on an uncharted path, and
had, since July, placed 300 industries
under codes and nearly completed
codes for 200 more.

Final Approval For
Washtenaw Jail Is



By Officials

Final approval for the construc-
tion of a new Washtenaw County
jail was received yesterday by C. H.
Elliott, county CWA administrator,
from government officials at Lans-
Preparations for tearing down the
old jail will be started today and
work on the new building will com-
mence as soon as this is completed.
Short term prisoners at the present
jail are being removed temporarily
to the Wurster Building on Fourth
Avenue until the new structure is
ready for occupation.
The new building is being con-
structed at a cost of approximately
$64,000 and is expected to be fin-
ished by May 1. The Federal gov-
ernment is assuming the cost of labor
and 25 per cent of the cost of ma-
terials. The remaining 75 per cent,
amounting to approximately $8,000, is
to be paid by Washtenaw County.
Whereas the old building accom-
modated a maximum of only 35 per-
sons, the new jail will have a ca-
pacity of 80 prisoners in addition to
accomodations for 30 vagrants.

Hope For Total Of
Over 2,000_Signers
Must Receive Three-Fifths
Vote In April 2 Ballot
For Passage
Student hopes for beer and light
wines east of Division Street rose
to a new high last night when ap-
proximately 1,400 names had been
received on the petition circulated
by members of the Citizens' Charter
Repeal Amendment Committee. This
figure represents over 100 more sig-
natures than is legally necessary.
Through an error in calculation it
was believed that the date for filing
the petition in the office of the city
clerk was yesterday. It was found,
however, that it was noL necessary to
file the signatures until today, 40
days before the election. The com-
mittee made a final canvass of the
city last night which will be con-
cluded this morning. It was hoped
that about 2,000 names would be se-
cured, and the total number of pe-
titions will be filed at noon.
The names will be checked at the
city clerk's office, and if the amend-
ment to repeal the existing charter
provision which has kept the cam-
pus legally dry for the past several
decades receives the approval the
city clerk, the bill will be placed on
the April 2 election. To become ef-
fettive the proposed amendment
must receive three-fifths of the vote
at that time.
Those who have not signed a pe-
tition as yet may still do so at any
of the following places: College Inn,
Parrot restaurant, Tavern, New Gra-
nada Cafe, and the Bright Spot res-
taurant. If the lists have been col-
lected at the above places, persons
who want to sign may still be able
to do so until at least 11:30 a. m.
and possibly later at the offices of
The Daily on Maynard Street.

Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors
interested in participating in student,
activities and student government are
requested to report at 4:30 p. m. in
Room 306 of the Union, Gilbert E.
Bursley, president of the Undergrad-
uate Council, announced last night.
The new tryout system for the
Council will be explained to those,
who attend the meeting, and the in-
itiation of the new system, with
freshmen and sophomores acting as
helpers for the other members of the
Council, will probably take place dur-
ing the next few weeks.
Those students who have had past
experience in student government in
their high schools are particularly
requested by Council members to be
present at the meeting. Students who
have any ideas concerning the activ-
ities of the Council are also expected
to be in attendance.
The object of the new system is
to give those students who are most
likely to gain positions on the coun-
cil previous experience in the mani-
fold duties of the organization. The
present membership believes that in
this matter the future councils will
have more experience in their work
than those of the past.
The Council as it is at present or-
ganized has to depend too much
upon other campus organizations
whenever it wishes to carry on any
campus campaign the members be-
lieve. With juniors and sophomores
helping the regular members, and in
that manner competing for regular
positions themselves, council mem-
bers believe that the organization
will be able to perform its duties in
the future without too great a de-
pendence upon other campus organ-
