Wayne County Will Probably Get
Extra Congressmen, with Rural
Districts Getting One
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, July 17- With the
passage -by Congress recently of
the reapportionment bill Michigan
is faced with one of the knottiest
problems ,in its history. The re-
arrangement of Congressional dis-
-tricts necessitated under the law
will not be undertaken for nearly
twlo years but already considera-
ble attention is being given to the
problem such a re-arrangement
must certainly present.
With a national populatipn of
122,000,000 the quota ,for each con-
gressional district will be in the
neighborhood of 280,000 as com-
pared with 211,000 when the last
reapportionment was made in 1911,
The result of this ratio applied to
the congressional map of Michigan
Is bound to result in a number of
changes when the next "gerryman-
der" is undertaken in 1931 to bring
the state's districts up to the stip-
ulated quota prior to the elections
of 1932.
Rural Areas Suffer
Wayne county with its concen--
trated population will be entitled
probably to all of the four addi-
tional congressmen the state ex-
pect to gain by the reapportion-
ment Furthermiore at least one
more seat must be secured from
rural districts for the benefit of the
That the rural areas will suffer
by the re-arrangement of districts
Is believed indicated by these
facts: In the 1920 census report sev-
erall Michigan districts were below
'the 1911 population figure set for
a congressional district; then, too,
the falling off in rural population
which took place between 1910 and
1920 is believed to have continued,.
This, if so, spells the elilxgnation
of at least one of the e~istlng con-
gressional districtas in Michigan
when the next distribution of seats
Is underaken,
Vauses Duplication
in the lIght of the population
ggurea of 192,0 it appears inevita-
ble that any rearrangement which
can be made cannot escape thu, re-
sult of throwing twq present con-
gressmen intoq one district and pos-
~igly eausing this duplication in
other cases. Such a situation was
created rIn the last reapportion-
ment which threw Joseph W. Ford-
ney, of Saginaw into the same dis-
trict as Frank 0. Lindquist, of
Greenville, resulting in the latter
member being crowded out of con-
The problem the Michigan legis-
lature must/ face when it convenes
in 1931 is so imposing that the sug-
gestion has been advanced in some
quarters that no reapportionment
be atten~tted, thus leaving the four
or nmgre additional members the
dtate expects to gain to be elected
at large. in 1932 and 90ssibly in
subsequent years.

building in a general way, there
are many points 6f interest which
are overlooked by the average per-
son," stated Mrs. Mary B..Hender-
son, executive secretary of the
Alumnae council. "Among the most
interesting features of the building
are the girls' dressing rooms in the
Lydia Mendelssohn theater, which
are the most complete and mod-
emn in Ann Arbor. There are two
main tiers of dressing rooms, the
one upstairs being divided into four
sections, and the downstairs room
accommodating twelve girls. These
rooms are all equipped with ad-
justable mirrors, hot and cold run-
ning water, excellent ventilation,
and drinking fountains. The gen-
eral dressing room on the first floor
is also very attractive with its green
dressing tables and large mirrors.
The rest room on the third floor
is equipped with cots and reclin-
ing chairs.
The plaster dome in the theater
is another object of interest which
Mrs. Henderson pointed out. It is
one of the four perfect plaster
domes in the country. This was
brought out especially during the
May Festival last spring when the
dome was lighted up. At this time
the architect designing the new
Orchestra hall ats Cleveland came
to Ann Arbor especially to see the
Below the theater, in the base-
ment, is the large machine which
washes and cools all the air which
passes into the theater. In the
winter, this same machine heats
the air. A circulating machine stirs
up the air between the acts of a
play and keeps it in motion.
.The offices throughout the build-
ing are very completely and artis-
tically equipped. Particularly at-
tractive are the offices of thie Mich-
which include a waiting room, a
igan League on the first floor,
Imeeting room, and a general of-
fice. One of the most recently fin-
ished offices is that of Amy Loomis,
director of Play Production, which
is below the first floor at the .north
end of the building.

Carnton Wells, John Malloy, Dave
Ward All Playing for Fourth
Year from Ann Arbor
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, July 17-When Mich-
igan's golfers gather at the De-
troit Country Club here July 24 for
the twenty-second annual tourna-
ment of the Michigan State Golf
League, it will be possible for six
men to compile a record of having
qualified in the event for five suc-
cessive years. The six are, in the
order of their total standing of the
four preceding years, Dave Ward, of
the University, Big Rapids; John
Malloy, Ann Arbor; Harry Allen,
Grand Rapids; Carlton Wells, Ann
Arbor; James, G. Standish, Jr., De-
troit, and Francis Ryan, Detroit.
They are the only players who qual-
ified at saginaw, Lochmoor, Wash-
tenaw and Kent in the tourna-
ments from 1925 to 1928.
Ward's 302 strokes for the 72
holes of qualifying play over four
different courses show what a thor-
oughly sound golfer he is in medal
play competition. This total is 8
strokes over the total compiled by
Bobby Jones and Al Espinosa in ty-
ing for the United States open title
recently. The fact that in his first
year in the state tournament at
