About 1897, the owner approached
the University to sell this block for
the sum of $10,000. "This offer did
not seem to be an inducement," Mr.
Groves writes, "for nothing came of

FVol lowing L iseffort, the land was
su bdi vided and otf~jed for building
lots. TIhe lots were offered for sale
in 1899, but one obstacle remained,
the Jewish burial ground which had
fallen into decay. Their families had
long since left Ann Arbor, but ne-
grotiations were carried on with de-
scendants living in St. Paul and the
remains wer'e removed in 1901.

,Judge Jay 11. Payne annlounced last
night. This is the third city case to
be started against the Riksen Fra-

three weeks.
One case against Riksen, arising
out of an ari'est April 21, was cdis-
missedl at the city's request, and
last Wednesday Charles Golder, a
driver for Riksen, wa~s assessed $26.55
for peddling without a license as i'e-
quired for sale of goods not of his own
manufactuire or pi'oduction.
Riksen is claiming exemption from
the peddler's license requirement on
the grounds that he has standing

and league houses on his routes to
deliver to them each night.
