Riot Leaders
Still Hold
10 Hostages
(Continued from page 1)
LATE LAST night Frisbie told
rioters' spokesman Ward over the
intercommunications system "I'm
going along with you on the major
points." Frisbie reported the con-
vict leader showed "no particular
reaction."
Earlier the Warden had
warned newsmen, "I think they
want to do things piece-meal,"
indicating that the insurgents
would haggle over their captives.
release as long as they could.
Meanwhile, relatives of the hos-
tage guards kept a lonely vigil in
the waiting room of the Admin-
istration Building, the only struc-
ture unscathed in the demonstra-
tion which left more than $2,000,-
000 in damage.
Yesterday's casualties brought
the box score to one convict dead;
13 injured or wounded; three
guards. beaten; and four state
troopers hurt.
Warden Frisbie refused to spec-
ulate on whether the rioting,
which began Sunday night with
the seizure of four guards, was
completely under control.
"Let's wait and see how this
thing develops; it looks okay now
but I don't know what to expect
30 minutes from now," he shrug-
ged.
As The Daily went to press at 2
a.m. a tense quiet settled over the
giant penitentiary.

Heat Rash?
Besides ice cream cones, cool
cottons and spring fever, .the
new season has brought a ram-
pant measle epidemic to Wash-
tenaw County.
More than 400 cases have
been reported during the cur-
rent year, according to Dr. Ot-
to K. Englke of the, County
Health Department. He predic-
ted that more than 1,000 cases
will be recorded before the epi-
demic ends.
Actually, students need not
worry too much about becom-
ing measly, since infants usual-
ly are the victims of the dis-
ease. Dr. Englke thinks it a
"good idea for youngsters to
get meales-in modified forms"
before they grow up.
Club Installs

SPEECH DEPARTMENT COMEDY:
'Once in a Life Time To Open Today
*1
By ALICE BOGDONOFF
Bedecked in waistless flapper
dresses, two movie stars rolled
down State Street yesterday after-
noon in a bright red convertible
and popped into the Union to be
greeted by Mr. Schlepkin, one of
the twelve Schlepkin brothers of
Hollywood.

Tau Beta Pi ShortStory Contest Slated

The "movie stars," who contin-
ued their tour of the campus by
parading down the diag, were part
of the 'talkie' cast in the speech
department's production of "Once
in a Lifetime" which opens at 8
p.m. today in the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre.
* * *
A TAKE-OFF on Hollywood
during the early days of the talk-
ies, the comedy by Kaufman and
Hart pokes fun at beautiful but
dumb actresses, uninspired direc-
tors and uncritical critics.
The twelve Schlepkin broth-
ers who take the stage for 30
seconds will be played by speech
department teaching fellows and
graduate students. The mus-
tached brothers are a satire on
the famous Warner family.
Set+in a world of glitter and
gold, "Once in a Lifetime" tells
the story of three vaudeville ac-
tors from New York who try to
crash Hollywood during the roar-
ing twenties.
As the play continues the trio
opens a voice culture school and
gets snarled up in Hollywood
red tape. Their ghastly directing
