Wide powers to impose and enforce
sanitary regulations in Ann Arbor
eating places were granted local
health authorities last night in an or-
dinance passed by the City Council.
The ordinance, passed after its
third reading, authorizes sanitary of-
ficials to license and inspect any eat-
ing establishment, and if sanitary
conditions are found to be unsatis-
factory, the Board of Health is em-
powered to revoke the establishment's
sanitary licenses.
A clause exempting University-con-
trolled restaurants from payment of
the five-dollar sanitary license fee
was stricken from the bill by a unani-

Landlord Has Two Celebrants
And A Scholar Arrested, Jailed

WASHINGTON, April 7.-4P)-A
Sprogram of $4,500,000,000 for loans
and direct expenditures to relieve un-
employment and combat the recession
was in the making tonight, while the
Administration revenue Bill was being
amended in its undistributed profits
and capital gains taxes by the Senate.
Public works loans to cities, states,
and other political subdivisions which
would bear no interest are expected
to be presented to Congress some-
time in the near future, and will call
for expenditures of $1,500,000,000. A
second third "as a starter" toward
meeting next year's relief needs, was
predicted by Chairman Glass (Dem.,
Va.) of the Senate Appropriations
Final Demand Near
The final appropriations demand
was already nearing the end of its
journey through Congress, as the Sen-
ate agreed to House anendments to
the Administration bill to authorize
the Reconstruction Finance Corpora-
tion to make $1,500,000,000 of long-
term industrial and public works
Meanwhile, the Senate, operating
at record speed, cut out the un-
distributed profits and capital gains
taxes of the Revenue Bill and sub-
stituted in their place taxes sug-
gested by business men and recom-
mended by the Senate Finance Co-
mittee headed by Senator Harrison
(Dem., Miss.).
Fight Only Brief
Administration lieutenants con-
ducted only a brief fight for the pro-
visions, already aCcepted by the
House, acknowledging from the start
that their efforts were futile.
In brief, the Senate voted to sub-
stitute .a flat.18 per cent rate on cor-
poration income for the undistributed
profits #,ax. The House-approved
levy applied to corporations with
more than $25,000 net income and
ranged from 16 to 20 per cent
On the capital gains tax the Sen-
ate approved a fiat 15 per cent rate

voted by the House.

Welfare Funds
Mounting Relief Burden
Exhausts State Money
LANSING, April 7.-(0)-Governor
Murphy said today he would turn
to the federal government for assist-
ance in solving a staggering direct
relief problem in Michigan.
The executive said the state could
continue its present rate of welfare
expenditures no later than September,
when he estimated next year's funds
would be exhausted.
"The situation is at its worst right
now," the governor said, "and there
is no indication it will immediately
alter. Every day our revenues are
falling off. Meanwhile our relief bur-
den is mounting."
Murphy said approximately a half
million persons in Michigan are de-
pendent upon direct relief. The
federal government has been "gen-
erous" with WPA allocations, he add-
ed, but many who are now on direct
relief are not eligible for the other
type of aid.
Murphy said he would "call a spe-
cial session of the legislature in a
minute" if he were convinced it could
e contribute a solution of the problem.

two sophomore inmates of the room-

joying a pre-vacation celebration at
12:30 a.m. yesterday. Downstairs,
quietly finishing some accounting
problems he had been working on all
night, was a third tenant.
Came the squad-car, -containing
two patrolmen trying hard not to
laugh too obviously at Brown. Upon
his insistence, they arrested the two
"noisy" students for disordcirly con-
duct. And then, told that a third
student had. also been causing trouble,
they went inside. In a room beauti-
fully decorated with "No Parking"
signs, was the accounting student.
Despite bewildered protestations of
innocence, he was taken into custody
upon the landlord's insistene. The
signs were seized.
At the police sia lion, the trio were
booked and put up before Justice
Jay H. Payne, Upon protesting their
arrest, they were sent to County Jail
for trial later in the morning. There
they were put in with other prisoners
and finally served a meal of what one
described as "rotten coffee, a half-

for his release, but was told he would

Two Amendments
WASHINGTON, April 7.-(A)-By
a skimpy 22-vote margin the Govern-
inent Reorganization Bill survived an
attempt to kill it today in the House.
Administration forces immediately
followed up that victory by writing
two vital amendments into the mea-
sure---each a concession to the op-
position and each intended to draw
more support to the bill on the bal-
lot for final passage.
