Storts Work
Passes 13 Bills
State Senate Receives
Budget, Speeds Work
To Meet Adjournment
LANSING, Feb. 11.-(P)-The Leg-
islature, letting loose the flood gates
of legislation, today received its first
official budget measure and passed
13 bills and one proposed constitu-
tional amendment.
The Senate, spurred by remarks it
was dilatory, approved eight of the
measures and the House the other
five and the constitutional revision
resolution which already has passed
the Senate. It would validate mort-
gages which were defective for lack
of the signature of a wife but which
were unchallenged for more than 25
In the face of objections that the
Senate was lifting bills from commit-
tees and rushing them through gen-
eral orders and final passage all in
one day, Senator George P. McCal-
lum, President Pro Tempore of the
Chamber, asserted:
"It is not only unpatriotic but abso-
lutely cowardly to sit around here and
do nothing. If we don't begin to move
we won't get through by April 26." A
March 26 adjournment already has
been approved by the lawmakers.
The first governmental budget bill
of the season, the Mental Hospital
Measure, appeared months ahead of
schedule and probably will be reported
to the floor of the Senate for action
early next week since it was written
by the Senate Finance Committee.
The measure would appropriate
$11,784,684 for the Mental Hospital
group during the next fiscal year, but
made no mention of the following f is-
cal year in line with the Legislators'
decision to return again next winter.
The bill would provide wage n-
creases totalling $518,931, and is
$819,249 more than was appropriated
this year.
Will Draft Liquor Bills
LANSING, Feb. 11.- (P)- Federal
Judge Frank A. Picard was invited
officially today to write five bills
which would embody what he consid-
ers the most necessary corrections to
the Michigan liquor laws.
Picard, "father" of the original
Michigan past-repeal liquor statute
and First Chairman of the State Li-
quor Control Commission, received
the invitation from Senator Murl' H.
Defoe, Republican, Charlotte, Chair-
man of the Senate Liquor Committee.
Referring to a recent report of a
Liquor Study Committee which Picard
headed, Defoe said "I believe the best
way for the legislature to get Judge
Picard's findings before it in form
on which we can act would be for
him to draft his own bills."

Primary Polls
Will Not Observe
War Timne Change
LANSING, Feb. 11.- (P)- James
F. Shepherd, Deputy Attorney Gen-
eral, held informally tonight that
election polls in Monday's primary
election should be opened and closed
on the present Daylight Saving War
Time, although a legislative act turn-
ing the clocks back an hour will be-
come operative that day.
Shepherd said a legislative act
seeking to exempt Michigan from
"War Time" did not apply in the
case of election laws.
Although Attorney General Herbert
J. Rushton has held the legislature
had no right to enact such a law,
Shepherd said the department would
abide by it.

Rigid University entrance rigma-
role was abandoned this week to al-
low Emil Kaczor, deaf since he was
eight years old, to begin the study of
astro-physics at Michigan.
University authorities boosted the
bespectacled, pleasant eighteen-year-
old over the usual red tape attendant
with a first term at Michigan when
they found he last week was Valedic-
torian and top student in Chadsey
High School's latest graduating class
in Detroit.
Here on a scholarship; from the
State Board of Rehabilitation for the
Handicapped, he will carry a full
schedule of classes in the lit. school

In All-Girl Band
"Numbering 67 strong, the new All
GirlBand is well on its way to making
a permanent place for itself among
the University musical organizations,"
Professor William D. Revelli, its di-
rector, said yesterday.
While the band already has a con-
siderable complement of musicians,
Revelli continued, a shortage of trom-

will seek to retrain his unsteady or-
gans of speech. Lip-reading has been
his best communication with the out-
side world since he lost his hearing
ten years ago as an after-effect of
scarlet fever and diphtheria.
When Emil emerged from the fury
of registration last week with five 8
o'clock classes, he was a little wor-
ried. "How can I ever hear an alarm
clock," he asked Peter 0. Ostafin,
director of the West Quadrangle
where he now lives.
But regardless of such minor dif-
ficulties, Emil is convinced he can
make the scholastic grade. Fellow res-
idence hall men (who act as alarm
clocks) think he's right. They describe
him as the kind of a fellow "who'll go
to the library and investigate the
whole history of a course before sign-
ing for it."
After several near collisionon
campus, Emil is a bit leery about stu-
dent bicycle riders. He thinks there
should be a law forbidding riders to
speed behind a student with no other
warning than a shout.
Modern Art Reflects
Varied Conditions of
Time, Shapiro Says
Art as a reflection of the psycholo-
gical and sociological conditions of
our times was discussed by Prof. Mey-
er Schapiro in a lecture on "The Con-
tent of Modern Art" yesterday.
He explained that modern art is as
much a mirror of the contemporary
scene as was the art of the Renais-
With a Series of slides he illustrated
the works of Riviera, Picasso, and
numerous other artists of today, de-
ciphering the meanings of the most
He also made note of the modern
artist's constancy to his themes and
his attempts to represent dreams, fan-
tasies, and hallucinations.
In the past twenty years artists
have been attacked because they are
accused of being too individualistic
and not enough concerned with their
communities, he said.

The Shoe Question..
The recent rationing plan has taken us
all by surprise-but its consequences will not
be as drastic as first supposed. Shoes are still
available! The emphasis ,however, is on qual-
ity, rather than quantity. With spring so
close, no doubt you were thinking of those
navy shoes to offset your Easter outfit. Palter
de Liso shoes have had the earmark of quality
at the finer shoe salons in your home town as
in Ann Arbor. We have a new shipment
of these beloved "Debs" and invite your
inspection. $8.95 and $9.95.

Judicial Experience,
and a Remarkable RecOd.
NEXT MONDAY, February 15th, the voters of Ann
Arbor will elect a Municipal Judge to take the place of
and to hear the cases formerly heard in the Justice Courts
of this City. It is highly important that a fair, impartial,
experienced and judicially tempered man fill this office
if the public is to be best served.
JAY H. PAYNE deserves your vote for many reasons. As for legal
education, he is the possessor of the degree of Juris Doctor, the highest
scholastic award of the University of Michigan Law School. As for
experience, he has been a prominent member of the local bar for six-
teen years. As for actual experience in the office he seeks, consider his
record in judicial office. As our Justice of the Peace for the past several
years he has heard thousands of the same sort of cases which will be
brought daily before the Municipal Court. During this service he has
been repeatedly commended by attorneys and litigants alike for his hon-
est, impartial, humane and unbiased interpretation of the law and for
his insistence that justice be administered without regard for the color,
creed, politics or social position of the persons involved.
Not a member of any political clique or faction, he owes favors to no
one. He may be counted upon to render the same unbiased judicial ser-
vice in the future as he has rendered in the past. All other things being
eaual. there is no substitute for JUDICIAL EXPERIENCE.
