Motion Based On Article
On Cleanliness Survey
In Sunday'sDaily
Contaminated Food
Found, Gates Says
President Of Association
Refuses To Comment
On Charges Made
An immediate investigation into
the charges of unsanitary conditions
in local restaurants leveled by Dr.
Lloyd Gates, deputy city health com-
missioner and sanitarion to the Uni-
versity Health Service, was ordered
by the Ann Arbor city council at a
meeting last night in the City Hall.
Basing his resoluiton on the ar-
ticle which appeared in Sunday's
Daily, Alderman Clare Griffin, dean
of the School of Business Adminis-
tration, sponsored the motion for an
immedaite probe of the charges. It
was passed by unanimous vote.
Find Contamihated Food
In the article published by The
Daily, Dr. Gates declared that a re-
cent survey made under the direction
of the Department of Public Health
and Hygiene at the University dis-
closed serious evidence of contami-
nated food and utensils. He said
there was "urgent need for drastic
tightening of existing health and san-
itary regulations."
Employes of one out of every five
restaurants had failed to observe ele-
mentary personal sanitation, con-
tinued Dr. Gates, stating that B-coli,
bacteria found ordinarily only in the
human intestinal tract, was present
in 25 per cent of the restaurants ex-
amined.
Hemolytic streptococcus, the germ
associated with common colds and
septic sore throats, he said, was
found in- 45 per cent of the resta.
rants analyzed.
Careless Washing Charged
In some restaurants as much as one
third of bacteria present on plates
and silverware before washing, re-
mained after they had been cleaned,
dried and set out for the next cus-
tomer, Dr. Gates asserted.
Business practices of certain firms
he said, have resulted in patrons be-
ing served with bootlegged food. He
cited two recent cases of trichinosis
as developing from the use of meat
which had not been inspected.
When questioned today in regard
to Dr. Gates assertions Albert Heald, I
president of the Ann Arbor Restau-
ranteurs Association and proprietor
of the Parrot, declared he had noth-
ing to say.
Japanese Cut
Import Items;
China Weak
Nippon Artillery Hammers
Chinese Positions; Seek
To Take Shanghai
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.-(IP)-Ja-
pan's new import restrictions caused
lively speculation among administra-
tion economic authorities today as
to how much they may curtail pur-
chases from the United States.
Japan, seeking to become econom-
ically self-sufficient and to concen-
trate resources behind its army in
China, decreed that imports of more
than 300 commodities will be pro-
hibited or held to a minimum.
SHANGHAI, Oct. 5.-(Tuesday)-
(IP)-Japanese Artillery hammered
Chinese positions today in a sustained
bombardment designed to crack the
Chinese line extending from the nor-
thern edge of Shanghai to the Yang-

tze River.
The Japanese claimed minor ad-
vances along the front where a heavy
battle raged during the night. Chinese
however, asserted that they continued
to hold their positions.
A Japanese army spokesman pre-
dicted that by Oct. 10, the Chinese
National Holiday, "The Chinese will
not have much to celebrate." The
Chinese front at Shanghai, he said,
Vis like an open fan, with Chinese
withdrawing in the same way that a
fan closes, thus shortening the front."

Chang Advises
China To Adopt
Policeman Role
The urgent necessity for a power-
ful China to act the role of "husky
policeman" on the Pacific against
Japanese aggression was stressed last
night by Dr. Yuen Z. Chang, visiting
lecturer, before the Exchange Club in
the Union.
Japan's intentions, as expressed in
the famous Tanaka document, pub-
lished in 1929, Dr. Chang said, are to
conquer China and monopolize that
part of the world.
On the basis of these aims and
their actual commencement in ac-
tion, Dr. Chang pointed out, with
Japanese incursions into Manchuria,
Chahar, and Suiyuan, China must
now utilize every force in its power to
block the. war machine of its neigh-
bor across the Yellow Sea.
The whole world, too, is interested
in seeing Japan stopped, and the
sooner, the less costly and dangerous
will be the campaign, Dr. Chang said.

Is Richard G. Eubank In This Scene? I

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.-/P)-Jus-
tice Hugo L. Black unsmilingly took
his place at the majestic mahogany
bench of the Supreme Court today
and, staring straight ahead, heard
his colleagues postpone action on a
motion designed to unseat him.
With a minimum of words, Albert
Levitt, former federal judge for the
Virgin Islands, informed the ~tribunal
he had filed a motion asking permis-
sion to challenge Black's eligibility
on constitutional grounds.
"You may submit the papers,"'
Chief Justice Hughes replied.
Patrick Henry Kelly, angular and
insistent Boston attorney, also at-
tempted to address the Court on E
second and similar motion, but de-
sisted at Hughes' request and sub-
mitted his motion in writing to El-

education director at Goucher Col-

at least 17 years. The subject's face

Dr. Lida Lee Tall, president of the
State Teachers College at nearby
Towson, said such "black on white"
pictures have been used there for the
past six years with both men and
women students being photographed.

Howard M. Jones
Will Publish Book
On Thomas More
The forthcoming publication on
Oct. 8 of a new book by Prof. Howard
Mumford Jofies from material gath-
ered while on leave from the Univer-
sity was announced today by Prof.
Karl Litzenberg, of the English de-
partment.
Until recently a member of the
English department, Professor Jones
is now on the faculty of Harvard
University. The book is a biography
of Thomas More entitled "The Harp
That Once," which follows a line
from one of More's poems.
Professor Jones was teaching at
the University at the time he was
awarded the Guggenheim fellow-
ship to continue his research at
London and Bermuda. According to
Professor Litzenberg, the book is not
only a biography of More but also
"contains scholarly information about
the social and political life in the
Regency period."
Whitford Kane
To Help Direct
PlayOffering
Whitford Kane, coming directly
fromEhis engagement in the success-
ful "Excursion" on Broadway, will act
as guest director and male lead in
the same play to be given here the
week of Oct. 25 as the first offering
of the current Play Production sea-
son.
Mr. Kane will arrive in Ann Arbor
Saturday morning when he will im-
mediately go into rehearsal, it was
announced by Valentine B. Windt, di-
rector of Play Production and head
director of "Excursion." The cast of
more than 40, with the exception of
Mr. Kane, will be entirely composed
of Play Production students.
Mr. Kane was scheduled to appear
here during the Summer Session of
the Michigan Repertory Players but
was delayed because of the extended
Broadway run of "Excursion." This
will be the first non-professional pro-
duction of this play, which is a fan-
tastic comedy written in a light vein,
according to Mr. Windt. Mr. Windt!
emphasized the desirability of pro-
ducing this play because the large
cast needed will give many students
the opportunity to appear in this
first production.

Published Letter To Editor
And Photograph Said To
Have Caused Arrest
Richard Eubank Is
Released On Bail
Faces Prison Term Of Two
To 10 Years If Convicted
AccordingTo Rapp
A letter to the Editor of The Daily,
>ublished Sunday, brought the ar-
'est yesterday of Richard G. Eubank,
39L, 21 years old, in connection with
he pre-football game riot here Fri-
lay night. He is charged with felon-
,us assault upon Patrolman Rolland
'Barney" Gainsley, who was kicked in
;he groin during the riot.
Eubank faces a prison term of from
two to ten years if convicted, accord-
ing to Prosecutor Albert C. Rapp.
Eubank stood mute when arraigned
yesterday before Justice Jay H.
Payne. Examination was set for Oct.
14. He was released yesterday af-
ternoon on $1,000 property bond.
Letter Causes Suspicion
He was first suspected as the one
who kicked Officer Gainsley when
iis letter appeared in The Daily. The
;oliceman's assailant was said to have
asked Gainsley for his badge number.
Eubank said in his letter that he had
zsked "officer 18" for his number.
Later Rapp received a photograph
allegedly showing Eubank tussling
avith Gainsley. The picture was taken
by a Panorama staff member but,
?anorama editors said, was taken
from the office when it was needed
for printing in the issue which will
appear Thursday.
Police said they had Eubank's de-
scription and several witnesses to
his alleged assault upon Gainsley be-
fore they received the photograph.
Officer Gainsley was released from
St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital Saturday
night so that his marriage yesterday
might not be delayed. It was report-
ed at the hospital that he may return
3oon for an operation.
Says Gainsley Walked Around
At his arraignment Eubank said he
"didn't think" he was the one who in-
jured Gainsley, because he said he
had seen Gainsley walking around
after he scuffled with him.
Justice Payne interrupted to warn
him of the seriousness of the charge
and advised him to stand mute until
he had retained counsel. He accept-
ed the advice and was returned to
the county jail where bond was fur-
nished by George Hanover of Ypsi-
lanti.
In his letter to The Daily Eubank
said officer 18 (Gainsley) turned a
streaming tear gas pistol directly in-
to the face of a woman companion,
temporarily blinding her and causing
"much pain." He said the pistol was
then held up to his own face and,
when he complained, he said the ac-
tion was repeated. Copies of the let-
ter were also sent to Mayor Walter
Q., Sadler and the Ann Arbor News.
It was unofficially reported that
Gainsley walked by the corner where
his injury is said to have taken place,
at Liberty and State streets, with his
streaming. gun in hand, and that he
did not see the couple until after the
gas had affected them.
It was several minutes after being
attacked that Gainsley realized the
extent of his injury, it was reported.
George Burke, University attorney,
has been retained by Eubank.
Mystery Blast Ends
Pirate Sub Search

ALICANTE, Spain, Oct. 4.-()--
An exciting six-hour hunt for a pirate
submarine by seven British destroy-
ers and two seaplanes apparently
ended tonight with a mysterious ex-
plosion and fire at sea.
No explanation was given by the
searchers looking for a submarine of
unknown nationality that earlier
launched a torpedo against a British
destroyer.
Shore observers, however, heard
