A University budget of $8,111,326.-

crease of $155,841.51 over the currentt
budget, was voted by the Board of
Regents yesterday afternoon at a'
special meeting.I
The promotion of 56 faculty mem-
bers, effective with the school year
1936-37, was also announced by the
The budgetary increase was large-
ly accounted for by the larger enroll-
ment, which resulted in greater ex-
penses, and the increased income
available from the proceeds of theI
State mill tax law.
The increased appropriations went
largely for raising faculty salaries, in
keeping with the Board's policy of
restoring faculty salaries to former
levels, but without making a blank-
et raise of all salaries.
In the budget was included an1
appropriation for the University Hos-
pital of $2,303,496, which will be de-

Chicago, the Regents accepted a gift
of $1,000 to be offered next year in
scholarships to World War veter-

Conductor Stokowski Pleased

To begin the story of Leopold Sto-

last night is a difficult thing. It
might be said, by way of preface, that
the mountain decidedly came to Ma-
homet, 'nd hundreds cheered the
It seems that the tall, angular,
white-haired Mr. Stokowski became
not a little fed up with student and
other interviewers yesterday. His ap-
pearance as conductor of the Phila-
delphia Sytnphony Orchestra at the
May Festival had been a somewhat
tiring one, and Mr. Stokowski was de-
sirous of recreation. He also wanted
to execute what Thorne Smith would
term a "turnabout."
So Mr. Stokowski marched down to
the Pretzel Bell, pleasure-bent, to in-
terview his student friends-to-be.
He entered the Bell, that tavern
which, self-styled, is "practically a
Michigan tradition," about 11 p.m.,
to the accolade of hoarse student yells.
The visit of Mr. Stokowski to the
Bell had been managed, it seems, by
a pair of students who had been mark-
edly unsuccessful in talking to him
earlier in the day. But the news
had spread from lip to lip, and by
the time of the conductor's arrival
there was not a soul in the tavern
who wasn't wise to the momentous
events that were to come.
Dressed in a summery light gray
suit, solid gray shirt, yellow and black
necktie and black and white breast-
pocket handkerchief, Mr. Stokowski
strode through the vocal din to the
back of the packed room and edged
himself into a waiting chair.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.,May 15. -
(Special) - With Don Lash leading
the Hoosiers to sensational slams in
the mile and two-mile runs, and Dan
Caldemeyer tieing the accepted
world's mark in the 120-yard high
hurdles, the University of Indiana
track team outpointed Michigan here
today, 67% to 64%/2.
Lash presaged defeat for Michigan
in the opening event of the meet
when he turned the mile in 4:13.5, al-
most a second better than his Confer-
ence record established last year, with
Tommy Deckard and Jim Smith fol-
lowing behind him and ahead of the
Michigan entries, Brelsford and Fink.
The smashing victory in the mile,
however, was but a preface to an
equally smashing win in the two-mile
when Lash came back in an effort to
better his collegiate record of 9:10.6,
established at the Drake Relays this
year. His try failed by a tenth of a
second, but was more than eleven
seconds better than the Big Ten rec-
ord. Deckard and Smith again trailed
him in that order to shut out the
Wolverine entries of Stone and
Dan Caldemeyer shared record-
busting honors with Lash, however,
by an impressive victory over Mich-
igan's Bob Osgood. Skimming over
the barriers in perfect form, the
Hoosier captain was timed in :14.2,
equalling the listed world's record held
by Percy Beard.
Michigan, defending champions in
the Conference track meet next week
against competition which will be led
by the Hoosiers on the basis of their
win today, garnered nine first places,
including a tie for first in the pole
vault, with Sam Stoller pacing the
way. Stoller earned two firsts, in the
hundred which he won in :09.8, and in
the broad jump, with a leap of 23
feet 2 inches. He also placed third
to Collier and Gunning of Indiana
in the 220-yard dash.
Other Michigan 'winners were the
mile relay team, which .set a new
stadium mark of 3:25.4, John Town-
send in the shot put, Stan Birleson
with a mark of :48.6 in the quarter,
Skip Etchells in the discus, Bob Os-
good in the low hurdles and Len
Dworsky in the javelin. Nelson Drou-
lard and Morris Morgan shared in a
four-way tie for first in the pole vault.
Indiana maintained its dominance
in the track events above the quarter,
is which Michigan scored a slam, by
placing Marmaduk Hobbs and Bernie
Gill first and second in the half-mile.
The time was 1:54.3.

Hurling Of Fishman
LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 15. - to') -
Michigan's Varsity baseball team
blasted out six runs in the second in-
ning off Martin, diminutive Purdue
southpaw, and then coasted to an 11-
3 victory over the Boilermakers here
today. The victory kept the Wolver-
ines at the top of the Big Ten stand-
ings, with a perfect record.
Lefty Fishman. Wolverine pitcher
had men on base in every inning
except the fourth, but he held the
Purdue runners away from the plate
until the ninth, when the Boiler-
makers got all of their runs with the
aid of three errors. Two great plays
by Uricek saved Fishman from fur-
ther damage.
Uricek, Jablonski, Lerner, and Hey-
liger led the Michigan attack with
two hits each. Malaska robbed Uri-
cek of a home run with a somersault
catch of his drive on the running
track, nearly 400 feet from the plate.
Michigan's runs in the second in-
ning came as the result of singles
by Uricek, Jablonski, Lerner, Heyliger,
and Rudness and passes issued to
Ferner and Brewer.
. Fishman's control was excellent
throughout the game. He struck out
Mangas, his seventh victim of the
game, to dampen Purdue's rally in the
ninth and allowed only four passes.

Protected Number SclPime

Italian Lottery, Numbers,
Policy Are Employed To
Swindle Thousands
A numbers gambling racket in De-
troit and other large cities of the
nation that is protected by police de-
partments, high-up municipal officials
and great newspapers and gleans
thousands of dollars a day from a
vast and gullible public was exposed
yesterday by Gust Carlson of the so-
ciology department.
Mr. Carlson recently concluded a
survey of this "policy racket" in De-
troit, New York, Cleveland, Cincinnati
and Toledo, declared that "such a
situation could not be possible if it
were not for the cooperation of the
police department. The higher-ups
know about it too. The racket, he
asserted, "thrives on protection." Such
number gambling is forbidden by
state law and city ordinance.
No Names Given

He refused to disclose actual names
or instances of official protection, but
declared that he had documentary
The policy racket, according to Mr.
Carlson, who emphasized the gam-
bling situation in Detroit, is played
and run principally by Negroes, al-
though he pointed out, Jews are tak-
ing it over in some cities, and Sicilians
have almost exclusive control over the
Italian lottery, one game of the racket.
The actual gambling, Mr. Carlson
explained, takes"the form of betting,
small sums at odds as great as 1,500
to 1, on a variety of sorts of numbers
-totals of money bet on the races,
New York Stock Exchange figures or
simply numbers out of a hat. The
racket, Mr. Carlson's investigation
showed, is run by big gamblers, who,
despite the large amounts they pay
for official protection, are usually mil-
lionaires. Sometimes the proprietor
racketeers swindle their patrons by
absconding with the money or de-
liberately drawing off-numbers, but
Mr. Carlson believes that "for the
most part the gambling is honest.
A Transient Racket
"Nevertheless," he pointed out,
"many oftthe operators have their of-
fices in the back of cars and have
to keep on the move in order to evade
the police, in cases where they can-
not afford protection." The number
gambling houses are located almost
entirely in the Negro districts, ac-
cording to Mr. Carlson, and their
patrons "are either Negroes or poorer
class whites."
Even the church has been drawn
into the vast maze of the gambling
set-up, Mr. Carlson charged. The of-
ficial church is an innocent party to
the racket, he said, their hymn num-
bers being used by gamblers, but many
fly-by-night religious organizations,
especially formed for the purpose and
ofttimes meeting in the back of a
store, give out numbers for the rack-

Promising an answer to the serious
problem of eliminating the glare
from automobile headlights which
endangers night driving, polaroid, a
material recently put on the market
which will polarize light, was de-
scribed yesterday by Prof. C. F. 1
Meyer of the physics department.
Light, he explained first, is com-
posed of transverse waves, similar to
those of the ripples of water in a
pond. Unlike these ripples, however,
ordinary light waves do not vibrate
only in one plane, but consist of
transverse waves in which the plane.
of vibration changes many times per
Polarized light, he added, is ob-
tained by sending light waves
through some material which would
filter out all but the waves vibrat-'
ing in one plane. This phenomena
is similar to throwing straws in the
face of a strong wind which blows
them, lying in various planes, to-
ward a slot in a wall. Only those
straws lying in the same plane as

waves which vibrate in only one
"Use of polaroid in preventing the
glare from headlights consists of
placing polaroid sheets in the head-
lights which will polarize light, let us
say, in a horizontal plane, and plac-
ing a small polaroid sheet in the
windshield which would polarize light
in a vertical plane," according to
Professor Meyer. Most of the light
from the headlights of any given
car would be unable to pass through
the windshields of approaching cars
! and thus the driver would not be in-
convenienced by a glare.
A person would be able to see the
objects in front of his own car, Pro-
fessor Meyer continued, because the
light from his own headlights, "when
striking the road ahead, would be
diffusely reflected and in this pro-
cess the light would lose its polariza-
tion to a large extent." This un-'
polarized light could penetrate the
