'Baker's Wife'
To Be Shown
Raimu, Noted French Star,
To Head Cast Of Film
Raimu, world-famous French actor,
will star in th7e prize-winning film
"The Baker's Wife" which will be
shown at 8:30 p.m. Thursday through
Saturday at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, under the auspices of the
Art Cinema League.
Noted for his characterizations in
"Un Carnet De Bal" and "Charle-
magne," Raimu, according to the
American critics who awarded his
latest film the "best foreign picture
of the year" prize, does his best and
most artistic role in "The Baker's
Wife." Born in France, the actor's
diction in his native language is sup-
posed to be one of the clearest and
finest in France.
Tickets for the performances may
be secured for 35 cents at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre box-office
starting Wednesday.

Piano Recital
To Be Given
Romantic music will be featured
on the recital program of Vladimir
Horowitz, Russian-born piano virtu-
oso, who will play in the Choral
Union series here 8:30 p.m. Wednes-
day in Hill Auditorium.
Sponsored by the University Mu-
sical Society, the recital will include
the works of Beethoven, Shumann
and Liszt. Horowitz, who is world
famous at the age of 36, numbers
these composers among his favorites.
A few tickets for the performance
are still available -at the offices of
the music society in Burton Tower,
or may possibly be had after 7 p.m.
the night of the recital at the Hill
Auditorium box office.
Although Horowitz has been a pub-
lic favorite for the past 15 years, he
does not run quite true to the form
of the usual musical genius. For in-
stance, he does, not practice a fabu-
lous amount of hours each day, nor
has he ever made a practice of doing
so. He revealed at one time that
all his life he never practiced more
than four hours a day, although he
often played for his own enjoyment
from 1 to 16 hours more than that.

Is Today's
In Summary


Because a citizen thought that
there was something strange about a
car parked for a few hours early
Thursday morning on S. Main St.,
the driver, Kenneth Owen, 6f Shelby,
Mont., is in the county jail awaiting
extradition for stealing a car in
Minneapolis, Minn.
When the police investigated the
complaint about the parked car they
discovered a loaded .22 calibre auto-
matic. They arrested Owen and fur-
ther investigation showed that he
was driving a stolen car.
Yesterday a gas station attendant
from Fayette, Ohio, identified Owen
as the man who held up his station
and took only one Idollar. This at-
tendant was accompanied by the
sheriff of his county who brought a
warrant charging robbery. The police,
however, will turn Owen over to the
FBI for driving a stolen car over a
state line.
A split in the ranks of the younger
adherents to the GOP was revealed
yesterday when two rival groups
claimed the right to be known as
the Ann Arbor Young Republican
Club. Neutrals were reported seek-
ing to arrange a meeting today be-
tween representatives of both groups
in an attempt to bring about a pos-
sible compromise.
Private funeral services will be
held tomorrow for Dr. James Frank-
lin Adams, prominent local physician
and surgeon who practiced here for
25 years. He was 73. He graduated
from the University of Illinois med-
ical school in 1893.

Branch Government Financing
Shows Decrease In Tax Revenuej

for a bright, cheerful room...

_ _ _


The financing of local government
in a typical Michigan agricultural
county in recent years has been
marked by a decrease in property
tax revenues, an increase in federal
aid, and a growth in expenditures
for such activities as relief, health
and hospitals.
These trends are shown in a study
"Local Government in Branch Coun-
ty" by Dr. Robert S. Ford and Frank
M. Landers of the Bureau of Govern-
While the total estimated costs
of Branch County's local government
have remained fairly stable during
the past 16 years, the authors point
out, there has been a shift in the
cost of the various governmental
units as well as in the means of
financing their activities. County
costs in 1939, statistics show, were
nearly double the 1924 figure, while
township costs had decreased to ap-
proximately one-sixth of the 1924
township expenditures.
Despite the recent social and eco-
noinic changes, the authors say, the
governmental structure in Branch
County under the present constitu-
tional provisions, has not been al-
tered and is characterized "by an
unnecessarily large number of small,
independent, and sometimes over-
lapping units.
Reforms for county government

suggested in the study are: "The'
elimination through consolidation of
many of the present 123 school dis-
tricts and some of the 16 townships;
the adoption of a more simplified
administrative machinery and the
appointment rather than the election
of administrative officials, particu-
larly in the country government and
in the city of Coldwater; and a sim-
plification of the property tax ma-
chinery by the creation of a county
assessment system."

LIGHT makes a difference in a
room. Be sure you have the right
kind and right amount: Measure
your lighting with a Light-Meter.
No charge - call any Detroit
:Edison office.
