A weird story of having been drugged by Alvin Karpis (right),
wanted for the kidnaping of Edward Bremer, Si. Paul banker, was told
by Alfred Geonia (left), when he was arrested by Joliet, 111.; officials.
Search for Karpis was renewed in Illinois on the strength of Geonia's
tale, although authornties were prone to lend it little credence.

46 Years Of
Forty-six years ago the campus of
the University of Michigan was1
lined with board walks which the
students tore up annually on Hallo-1
ween night. Forty-six years ago foot-
ball was being introduced to the
University, and a center of attraction
for students and townspeople was
found in the fair grounds, located
at Forest and Hill streets.
Forty-six years ago there were six
buildings on the campus; a museum
that is now called the Romance
Language building; Haven, alland
University'Hall, shiningly new; a
library; a chemistry building which
is known today as the Pharmacology
building; and a small wooden struct-
ure on the present site of the Clem-
ents Library, which was called the
engineering school.l
Joined B. & G. Squad
Forty-six years ago George Lutz1
was given a job in the buildings and
grounds department by President
James B. Angell. For forty-six years
he has watched the pageantry of life,
a never-ending procession of learned
professors and considerably less-
learned students, that has passed
through the University.
He has known intimately every
president of the University since the
time of Angell. Back in 1921 he was
I sitting in his favorite place in the
Rotary Club, when Marion Leroy
Burton, then president of the Uni-
versity, came up and sat beside him.
The man who nominated Calvin
Coolidge for president of the United
States put his arm around George
Lutz and said, "George, I like you".
Has Watch From Council
The 76-year-old man, still working
quietly and humbly at his painting
trade in the buildings and grounds
department, says today, "I'll remem-
ber that all of my life." Also cherished
among his possessions is a watch
presented him for sixteen years serv-
ice on the Common Council of Ann
Arbor. He was a member of the Coun-
cil from 1907 to 1923.
George Lutz is gifted with a photo-
graphic memory, and forty-six years
in the University have not blurred the
outlines of the kaleidoscopic picture
which he retains of campus life. He
still remembers that in 1868, when he

was studying in the Un:on school[
of Ann Arbor, corresponding to the
present high school, that there was_
a population of 8,920 in Ann Arbor-
that in 1870 the University proudly
announced it had attained an enroll-
ment of 1,000.
When anyone wants to find out
something which has happened on
the campus sometime in the last
fifty years, he is invariably told to
"go see George". When questioned,
"George" will tell you "who taught

that incident took place in which
students put a cow in the office of the
Dean of the Medical School.
Recalls Body Snatching
He recalls the time, back in the
'80's, when 'Doe' Nagele was janitor
of the old medical building. It befell
upon 'Doc' to see that the students
had a sufficient supply of cadavers,
and he was the innocent participator
in the last case of "body snatching"
at the University.
Lutz was sweeping out the Library
one night when he saw two strange
men drive furiously up to the door of
the medical building in a horse and
buggy outfit, with some dark bundle
lying bteween them. One of the men
clambered out, hoisted the bundle
over his shoulder, and rushed through
the door. The other layed a whip
on the horse, and 'vanished into the
His curiosity aroused, Lutz went
down to see what was up. As he was
approaching the medical building,
the local sheriff drove up to the door,
in as much haste as the strangers.
"Have you seen a couple of men carry-
ing a dead body around here?" he
l asked the astonished Lutz. Before
the latter could answer, the sheriff
strode into the building.
Recovering from his surprise, Lutz
followed the sheriff through the door.
He saw the officer trying to "snatch"
the dead body of a man away from
Doc Nagele, who was volubly protest-
ing that he had just bought the body
as a new cadaver for the medical
Body Gained
The sheriff regained the body.
As the story later came out, the
two culprits, who were finally caught,
had uncovered a grave in Adrian.
They removed the dead body, and
tarted te long trek back to campus,
their elation over their "find" prob-
ably conflicting with certain olfactory
sensations arising from the presence
of their strangely silent and inert
companion. Somehow the sheriff got
wind of the affair, the arm of the
law reached out, and the sanctity of
the dead was once more restored.
All the lore of 46 years of campus
life, all the traditions of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, all the fads and
foibles of undergraduate life are the
property of George Lutz.
"Go see George," they'll tell you.

Meyer Cites
In Diffraction
Discusses Recent Work Of
Thomson In Field Of
Electron Theory
Speaking before the Physics Collo-
quium Tuesday, Prof. Charles F.
Meyer of the physics department
stressed the importance of recent de-
velopmnents in the field of electron
In propounding the theory of elec-
tron diffraction, Professor Meyer dis-
cussed the experiments of Davisson
and Germer which were conducted in
April, 1925. These physicists allowed
a stream of electrons to bombard a
crystal with the result that a well-
defined stream of electrons was dif-
fracted in a given direction. This di-
rection could be determined by the
velocity of electrons and the structure
of the crystal.
The speaker also cited the work of
'G. P. Thomson and S. Kikuchi along
the line of electron diffraction.
Thomson, he said, shot a stream of
electrons through a thin film and
then photographed the steam. The
photographic pattern was in con-
centric circles, the material of the
film determining the space between
the circles, he said.
Another important development
along this line, Professor Meyer stat-
ed, was the electron microscope. This
is used to take pictures of objects
giving off electrons.
