Russia Favors Complete
Abolition Of Armaments
In Geneva Plea
GENEVA, May 29. - (P) - States-
men who came to Geneva expecting
to praise disarmament and then bury
it were electrified with new hope to-
day by an American proposal to strike
at the root of war by controlling the
munitions traffic and a Russian plea
for complete abolition of armaments.
Speaking with the authority of
President Roosevelt, Norman Davis,
American ambassador at large, told
the opening ses.on of the disarma-
ment conference that the United
States is ready to join in a "substan-
tial and proportionate reduction of
naval tonnage" and an international
convention regulating or eliminating
sales of war materials.
" =The American people and govern-
ment are convinced," he declared,
"that the production and traffic in
engines of death and the profits re-
sulting therefrom must be controlled
or eliminated."
Davis made it clear that while the
United States will enter into any
agreement to preserve peace, the
country will not participate in Euro-
pean political negotiations.
"President Roosevelt," he said, "has
authorized me to summarize the atti-
tudes and policy of the United States
as follows:
"We are prepared to co-operate in
every practicable way in efforts to se-
cure a general disarmament agree-
ment. We are furthermore willing in
connection with a general disarma-
ment convention to negotiate a uni-
versal pact of non-agression and to
join with other nations in conferring
on international problems growing out
of any treaties to which we are a
"The United States will not, how-
ever,-participate in European political
negotiations and settlements and will
not make any committment whatever
to use its armed forces for the settle-
ment of any dispute anywhere."

Rigid Rules
For Women's
League Judiciary Makes
New Set Of Regulations
Regarding Latenesses
Houses To Manage
Minor Infractions
Sign-Out Slips Are To Be
Given To Undergraduate
Council Every Monday
A new set of rules governing late-
nesses and applying uniform penal-
ties for all sororities and League
houses has been passed by the League
Judiciary Council, according to Kath-
leen Carpenter, '35, chairman. The
new laws, which ,go into effect in
September, do not apply to dormi-
tories, since they have already estab-
lished uniform methods of their own.
In the past all violations of closing-
hour rules were punished by the hus-
es themselves, with the result that
there were wide discrepancies in the
penalties imposed,. The new law ap-
plies uniform rules to major and mi-
nor infractions.
The minor violations will be pe-
nalized by the houses themselves, ac-
cording to the new program. First
and second latenesses of one to five
minutes incur a penalty of one-half
hour plus the number .of minutes late,
deducted from the corre ponding
night of the following week First
and second latenesses of six to thirty
minutes incur a similar penalty of
one hour plus the number of minutes
late. A third lateness of less than 30
minutes means the loss of the follow-
ing Saturday night privilege, and
fourth lateness, the loss of the fol-
lowing Friday night privilege. All
privileges for the next week-end, in-
cluding Sunday, are withdrawn in
cases of the fifth offense.
The Judiciary Council will have in-
itial jurisdiction o er all major in-
fractions, inludIn4 -the- sixth of-
fense, or any lateness over 30 min-
utes. The Council considers all cases
individually, and imposes penalties
Another change effected by the new
rules is that sign-out sheets are to be
turned in every Monday morning at
the Undergraduate Office, instead of
once a month as formerly. All late
permissions granted by Miss Jeanette
Perry, assistant to the dean of wom-
en, must be attached to these sign-
out sheets, instead of being returned
to the dean's office. Late permis-
sions received from house chaperones
must also be indicated on the sheets.
The rules are a compilation of the
most representative methods of pen-
alty employed by houses in the past.
They have been designed, said Miss
Carpenter, so that the Council may
have a clear idea of the offense and
of the punishments already imposed.
Hereafter the Council will meet week-
ly and on extraordinary occasions
upon call.
In addition to Miss Carpenter, the
membership of the Council includes
two senior representatives, Helen Mc-
Donald and Elizabeth Talcott, and
two junior representatives, Winifred
Bell and Ruth Rich.

Man Has Been Buried In
Southern Indiana
CHICAGO, May 29. -(P) -Now
comes Melvin H. Purvis, head of the
local bureau of the Federal Depart-
ment of Investigation, to add his name
to the list of those expressing the
opinion that John Dillinger is dead.
A day or so ago Attorney-General
Homer S. Cummings murmured "I
wonder if Dillinger isn't dead."
Tonight - only a few hours after
four girl companions of Dillinger
gangsters reportedly were questioned
about the mob's activities - Mr. Pur-
vis said he was "convinced" that the
number one bad man of America was
In fact, he added; some of his agents
were looking for Dillinger's supposed
"grave" in a lonely field "somewhere
in southern Indiana."

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article describ-
Ing fatuous Michigan buildings was
written for The Daily by Prof. Emil
Lorch of the College of Architecture.
Photographs and drawings of some
of Michigan's famous houses and
other buildings'of about 90 years ago
are now on exhibition in the Archi-
tectural building. For the first time
in Michigan's history we can see atl
the same time the floor plans, exter-
iors, and many of the interior details
of buildings famous in their day as
the place of abode of prominent cit-
izens and outstanding for their excel-
lent architectural character.
The Judge Dexter house, spacious in
plan and with a six-columnar Greek
Doric portico in the grand classical
manner, is perhaps the most impres-
sive. The Wilson-Wahr house in the
Greek Ionic style is distinguished by
its purity of design. The Greek Ionic
orders also appears in the charming
little house on Pontiac Street, for-
merly occupied by Robert Frost, and
now by Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Aldrich.

Tsk, Not Evn' The
Word.Beer Allowed
In Official Bulletin
Although the king of words in the
hearts of the student body, beer is
evidently still considered a naughty
word by the editor of the Daily Of-:
ficial Bulletin.
The Deutches Zirkel wapted to
have a meeting. Taking the con-
ventional manner of letting members
know, they sent in a notice for the
D.O.B. It read "All members of the
Deutches Zirkel meet at 7 p.m. in
the Union Lobby to go downtown
and drink beer and sing Gel ian
songs." The D.O.B. editor (name on
request) raised his hands in horror.
"What beer! in the Bulletin?"
Perhaps this was a bit "aus dem
platz" the Zirkel agreed. Not daunt-
ed, they tried again.
"All members of the Deutches Zir-
kel meet in the Union Lobby at 7 p.m.
to go downtown and sing German
"Tsk, tsk," quoth the editor, "This
won't do either." They reasoned that
beer was inferred because one would
not go downtown and sing German
songs unless one drank beer. So beer,
even as an inference, was vetoed.
"You can't beat the Dutch."
"Members of the Deutsches Zirkel
will meet at 7 p.m. today in the lobby
of the Union." It ran.
Lacy Is Still
Candidate For
Governors 1
DETROIT, May 29. - (R) - Arthur
J. Lacy, Detroit attorney who is an
avowed candidate for the Democratic
gubernatorial nomination, made it
plain today that he intends to stay in
the race, regardless of statements in-
dicating that he would not run against
Governor William A. Comstock.
The statement was inspired pri-
marily by an assertion by O. K. Fjet-
land, secretary to Governor Com-
stock, to the effect that Lacy had
told him only a short time before an-
nouncing his candidacy that he would
not oppose the Governor in the Sep-
tember primaries.
"Any such ,statement is entirely
without foundation and wholly un-
authorized," said Mr. Lacy today.

TOLEDO, May 29.--(P)--Check-
mated anew on the automotive strike
front, Federal Mediator Charles P.
Taft turned today to the proposed
walkout of Toledo's electrical workers
set for Thursday and carrying a threat
of further industrial paralysis.
Further in the background is the
shadow of a general walkout of all
union labor in the city - an even-
tuality declared by union executives
to be inevitable "under present con-
The union chiefs devoted all their.
time not spent in conciliation confer-
ences today to speeding plans for the
mass layoff, which will be announced
at a huge mass meeting of all unions
Friday night. Sixty-eight of the 103
local unions have approved the walk-
"Labor has its back to the wall,"
said Oliver Myers, business agent for
the electrical workers and secretary1
of the committee of 23 which is di-
recting the general strike movement.
We are convinced that there is an
organized movement under way here,
directed by Wall Street and carried
out by manufacturers, to break up the
trade union movement."
Suspend Classes Today
In Observing Holiday
Because of the national celebra-
tion of Memorial Day today, there
will be no classes.
Almost all branches of the Uni-
versity will be either totally or par-
tially closed. The Health Service
will be open only from 11 a.m. to
12 noon, but will have a doctor on
call all day for emergencies.
The Main Library will be open
for its regular hours, from 7:45
a.m. to 10 p.m., but only the Angell
Hall Study Hall and the Eco-
nomics Library, among the de-
partmental libraries, will be open,
and those only from 8 a.m. to 12
noon, and from 1 to 5 p.m.

Old-Time Michigan Buildings'
Described By Professor Lorch

The ground floor is unusual and has
an ingenious curved stairway. The
Aallard house in Ypsilanti is unique
in that its portico and entrance have
Roman Doric columns.
Distinctive also is the Harold Brooks
house of Marshall; it has a command-
ing site on a-low hill, is marked by a
monumental five-columnar Greek
Ionic porch and instead of a front
entrance has side entrances. Former-
ly two rooms extended across the
front where now there is one large
living room. Of Marshall's half dozen
Greek Revival buildings there is also
shown the Old Tavern happily pre-
serve& as have been other buildings
through the efforts of Mr. Brooks.
The floor plans show the interior
arrangements and give some idea of
how people lived about the middle of
the last century. The collection also
demonstrates the extent to which the
Greek Revival which began in Eng-
land was influential, around 1840 in
shaping the buildings and residences
of the then outlying state of Michigan
to which the classical style was car-

New Plan
Is Formed
Executive Body Of Four
To Be In Charge Of Main
Group Unanimously
ElectsHilty Head
Undergraduate Council To
Call Whole Group When
Consensus Is Wanted
Continuance of the same organiza-
tion and the same basis for selecting
personnel but with an executive coun-
cil to carry on the active functions of
the body was the plan adopted by the
Undergraduate Council at a meeting
held yesterday at the Union,
J. Carl Hilty, '35, was unanimously
elected president of the Council for
the school year 1934-35. Hilty, a
member of the Phi Kappa Psi fra-
ternity, has worked on the Michi-
ganensian business staff for two and
a half years and was recently ap-
pointed manager of the summer Stu-
dent Directory.
Hilty has been a member of the
council during the past year through
his position as president of Sphinx,
and, in addition, he was recently hon-
ored by election to Michigamua, sen-
ior honorary society of the literary
Under the terms of the act, the ex-
ecutive council will consist of four
members, the President of the Un-
ion, the President of the League, the
Managing Editor of The Daily, and
the president of the Undergraduate
The organization adopted was cho-
sen from among the alternate plans
as the one most likely to fulfill the
council's aim of increasing its use-
fulness as a promoter of campus ac-
tivities. A suggestion that the presi-
dents of the classes be included in the
membership of the body will be con-
sidered next fall. The motion was
made with the idea in mind of in-
creasing council co-operation in such
matters as the class dances.
The executive council will carry
on the ordinary work which the whole
body has been dealing with, saving
the necessity of calling frequent
meetings of the more cumbersome
whole group. The entire body will
be assembled by the executive coun-
cil when its members consider it ad-
visable to secure a consensus of opin-
ion in regard to any question.
It was decided to make no decision
on the question of continuing the try-
out system until the first meeting of
the body next fall when the plan of
making the position of secretary-
treasurer the goal for the try-outs will
be considered. By an alternate plan
one of the members of the execu-
tive council would hold this position.
It was also decided to delay the se-
lection of members to the five posi-
tions on the disciplinary committee
of the council until the first fall meet-
ing. As well as acting as an organ of
the council, members of this com-
mittee also sit with the faculty dis-
ciplinary committee where they hold
the power of recommendation.



MacDonald Is Elected
New Sphinx President

Sphinx, junior honorary society,

ing of the organization held yester-
day in the Union. David G. Mac-
Donald, '36, was named president,

86-Year-Old Admiral, Hero Of
Russo-Jap War, Pa s s e s Away

Expenditures Of FERA Exceed
$37,000; 752 Students Placed

TOKIO, May 30. - (Wednesday)-
(0P) - Admiral Heihachiro Togo, 86-
year-old hero of the Russo-Japanese
war, died at 6:35 a.m. today (4:21 p.m.
Tuesday, Detroit time.)
Admiral Togo had been seriously
ill for several weeks. Only yesterday
the Emperor sent him a gift of a
dozen bottles of wine, the customary
action when death of a distinguished
subject is expected.
The Emperor also elevated Ad-
miral Togo from the rank of count to
that of marquis on the day before
his death.

erage Anglo-Saxon feels for the cur-

inating Manchuria and becoming a
determining factor in Oriental af-
fairs. What was important, how-
evey, to those who were boys at the
time was the little Admiral's demon-
stration that the little fellow, beset
by the big bully, sometimes triumphs.
Togo's admirers (they were not
confined to Japan) claimed this as the
most decisive naval engagement since
Trafalgar. Even Jellicoe's indecisive
victory at Jutland during the World
War failed to eclipse it, for the Japan-
ese victory settled the fate of two em-
pires, and the ends of its many rami-
fications are not yet in sight.
It made Japan a world power. It
also made Togo the first citizen of
the empire with a place nearer the

The Federal Emergency Relief Ad-
ministration, which ceases to oper-
ate with regard to university and
college students June 15, will have ex-
pended more than $37,000, employing,
752 students in the University.
The amount of the payrolls for Feb-
ruary, March, and April were made
public yesterday by Harold S. Ander-
son, cost accountant of the buildings
and grounds department, along with
the tentative payrolls for May and
June. FERA work did not start in the
University until February 26. The
payrolls are: February, $819.13;
March, $10,121.30; April, $10,552;
May, $10,400; June $560. The approxi-
mate total, as figured by Mr. Ander-
son amounts to $37,492.43.
The handling of the payrolls was

the business office enough to bring!

The original plan was to employ
546 men and 206 women students.
However, only 125 women students ap-
plied for positions, the remaining va-"
cancies being given to men. Each

House To Vote
On Radio And
Telegraph Bill
WASHINGTON, May 29. --(P) -
The communications control bill, des-
ignated ultimately to bring the wire
and wireless transmission system '
under the regulatory hand of the
Federal Government, was handed over
to the House today for action by a
Proponents hope to hasten the bill
through before adjournment.
A difficulty lay ahead, however, in
the fact that the measure which the
House commerce committee reported
out was different in at least one ma-
jor aspect from that passed by the
Senate two weeks ago. Should the
House put through the measure in its
existing form, it would be necessary
to send the bill into conference to iron
out the disagreement.
The primary differences occurred in
the House proposal for a seven-man
bi-partisal commission to control the
communications systems that now are
supervised by the Interstate Com-
merce Commission. the Radio Com-
