LOCAL RECLUSE:
Court Records Tell Story of
RichMiser Dying in Poverty
+ - _ _ _ .. . ._ _ .

Another name has been added
to the roll call of wealthy misers
who die in apparent poverty, only
to leave behind them a consider-
able fortune.
Records in the Washtenaw
County Courthouse reveal that a
d6 year-old woman who froze to
death in her twelve-room home
here last winter because she re-
fused to buy coal, left an estate
valued at over $30,000.
Investigation Requested
Police broke into her home Jan.
30 after receiving a call from a
son in New York who asked local
officers to investigate. Neighbors
Accident Poll
To Be Taken
Home accidents in Willow Vil-
lage will be analyzed in a pre-
vention program by the Wash-
tenaw County Health Depart-
ment, Dr. Otto K. Engelke, di-
rector, announced.
Villagers will be asked to re-
port all domestic accidents when
paying rent at the housing office.
They will be given questionnaires
to fill out. The information gained
will help in formulating the pre-
vention plan.
If successful, the survey will be
extended to all of Washtenaw
County and the assistance of the
American' Red Cross or another
agency will be sought, Dr. En-
gelke revealed.
Cooperating in the survey ex-
periment is Leonard Board, U.S.
Pu4blic Health Service engineer
with the School of Public Health.J

had called when they noticed that
milk deliveries were accumulat-
ing on the doorstep.
Police found the aged woman
lying dead in the kitchen. Charred
bits of paper and burnt matches
indicated that she had made a
last-minute attempt to heat the
home before she passed into a
comatose condition brought on by
the near-zero temperature of the
unheated house.
Police also found cardboard fil-
ing boxes, the type used by busi-
ness firms, which were returned
unopened to her son.
Played Stock Market
A shrewd business-woman, she
played the stock market success-
fully even in her declining years.
North American Aviation stock
worth $8,000 was found in her
safety deposit vault, along with
other stocks totalling over $5,000.
At the time of her death she
had $4,227 in cash in a Detroit
bank, and real estate holdings
worth about $15,000. Also found
in her safe deposit box were sev-
eral diamonds, emeralds and sap-
phire rings and a gold bracelet.
Although she advertised for
roomers, the strict regulations
against drinking, smoking, radios,
children, or "high heels on the
second floor" kept prospective
takers away.
The estate is to be divided
equally among three sons, the only
heirs. She left no will.

Students Take
Part in Varied
Radio Shows
With an eye on the studio clock
and the director's frantic hand-
waving, more than 100 speech stu-
dents bit off a big chunk of radio
last night.
They proved they could down
it, too-as their "Operation 4006"
crammed a full day of broadcast-,
ing into three hours of continuous
programs - news, music, quiz
shows, drama.
Student actors and announcers
waited nervously for the "On the
Air" signal in three different stu-
dios up in 4006 Angell Hall, as
the student engineer in the con-
trol room switched the program
scene from one to the next. Shows
stuck to a strict schedule, with
just room enough in between them
for the WMDS station identifica-
tion.
The performers didn't confine
their efforts to acting and an-
nouncing - piano players and
singers from the ranks of the 10
classes were recruited for yeoman
service, too.
Easily one of the most versatile
was the sound effects man, who
took turns playing background
music at the turn-tables, slam-
ming doors, and pushing buzzers.
Down in Rm. 25, listeners heard
the broadcasts over a loudspeak-
er. Everybody got a chance to do
some lusty shouting on "Under
the Big Top," an audience partici-
pation program.

HOGAN-HAYES' beauty treatment
FUR COATS

By DICK ARNESEN
One building on campus that
has prompted more curious com-
ment than the coming of a new
minister to a small town is a
small, red-bricked chapel and
meeting-house located on Wil-
liams Street just off State.
It is enclosed by a high brick
wall, and sets back off the street
about 20 yards. Sturdy wooden
gates open into a small plot in
front, marked with small grave
stones.
Seldom Used
In recent years few people
have seen it in use; few people
have entered through the pad-
locked gate to the quiet chapel
beyond.
Questioning revealed that it be-

longs to Delta Kappa Epsilon fra-
ternity, now more fashionably es-
tablished on Geddes'Road. It was
built in 1878 from funds contrib-
uted by Deke fraternity brothers
from the classes of 1855-'80. The
price was a ridiculous $3,000
which would not even build a re-
spectable two-car garage today
The only improvement made
since it was built is a recent re-
roofing job. The Dekes still hold
their chapter meetings by gas
light at half past m4dnight on
alternate Saturdays. It is rarely
used in the daytime which ac-
counts for the curious speculation
of the casual passer-by.
Original Chapter House
The Dekes originally used it as
a meeting place inasmuch as they
then had no chapter house on
campus. The grave stones in the
chapel yard mark the place where
former Deke mascots are buried.
Police officers still tell the story
of a rookie patrolman whose cur-
iosity prompted him to loiter in
the alley behind the chaptel in
an effort to learn something of
the occult activities within. He
was abruptly startled out of his
vigil when an empty beer can
bounced off his head.
Unfortunately the clay will
probably come when this land-
nark will yield its place. to a
more "modern and respectable"
building. And with it will go an-
other reminder of the good old
days when nickel beer was sold
in sixteen-ounce glasses, and you
could cross State Street at a slow
walk.
