'Bloody Mike' Steiger Is
Arrested By Police But
Later Released
Criminal Hunt Goes
Into Second Week
Rapp Calls Ypsilanti Case
Most Baffling Crime In
Local Annals
Police still sought a definite clue
to work on last night as the hunt for
the murderer of Richard Streicher,
seven-year-old Ypsilanti schoolboy,
went into its second week. .
Detroit police believed last night
that they had a clue when they ar-
rested Charles "Bloody Mike" Steiger,
a paroed life-termer, as a suspect
in the Streicher case. Steiger estab-
lished, however, that he was at Fisher
Lodge, Detroit home for the unem-
ployed, March 7, the day of the mur-
Steiger, who was sentenced to life
in Jackson State Prison in 1904 for
attacking a girl, was reported in the
vicinity of Ypsilanti to weeks ago.
There was no reason to connect him
with the case, other than the nature
of the crime, police said.
The search for and arrest of Stei-
ger, Prosecutor Albert Rapp stated
last night, "is indicative of our des-
perate hunt for a clue. We are fol-
lowing up every lead." The prosecutor
termed the Ypsilanti killing "Un-

difficulties in becoming adapted to
the life on the University campus
will be held at 4:15 p.m. today in the
north lounge on the first floor of the

This project, which is being spon-
sored by the Student-Faculty Rela-
tions Committee of the Union and di-
rected by Prof. Bennett Weaver of the
English department, will deal chiefly
with the problems of proper methods
to study, choice of fields of chief in-
terest in intellectual pursuits.
William Dixon, '36, a member of
the Union committee, stated last
night that thus far no definite plans
for procedure have been formulated,
further than that the series will prob-
ably consist of three meetings for lec-
tures and discussions, more to be
added if sufficient interest is aroused.
This project is in accord with the
general policies adopted by the stu-
dent-faculty relations committee,
when it was first formed last year.

the offer, made by Preident Robert
Maynard Hutchins, was announced in
Chicago at the same time that it
was made public here. Professor
Jocckel will take the rank of pro-
fessor of library science.
A recognized authority in the field
of library science, he has been presi-
dent of the Michigan Library Asso-
ciation and chairman of the Amer-
ican Library Association committee
on federal relations. For several
years before, he was a member of. the
executive committee of the Michi-

Professor Joeckel has been with
the University since 1927. He will
remain on the faculty here for the
remainder of the semester not assum-
ing his Chicago position until fall.
He was barn in Wisconsin, ob-
taining his A.B. degree from the
university of that state. His master's
degree was received here in 1928, and
his Ph.D. degree from the University
of Chicago. Professor Joeckel has held
librarian positions in St. Louis and
Berkeley, Calif.
Members of the library science de-i

about his departure from the Uni-
versity, and, in wishing him luck,
expressed the thought that "Michi-

Savage Indians Are

BELEM Brazil -(P)-Howard M.
Rinehart, a wandering American
amazed to have -emerged from the
Amazon jungle alive, describes a tribe
of fierce Indians, fleet enough to

terrify neighboring jungle dwellers.
The Indians are the Chavantes,
tall, powerful and irreconcilable.
They are nude nomadic hunters and

Contemptuous of other tribesmen,
they are reported to be merciless,
leaving crushed skulls in their path.
