Criminal Code' Will Appear for
First Time Outside of
New York City.
Chester M. Wallace Will Play
Lead in Next Week's
"The Criminal Code," by Martin
Flavin, will be produced for the
first time outside of New York city
when the Michigan Repertory play-
ers of the Play Production depart-
ment open the third week of their
summer season with this play at
8:15 o'clock Wednesday night in
the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre.
Prof. Chester M. Wallace, guest di-
rector for Play Production and
head of the drama department of
the Carnegie Institute of Technol-
ogy, will appear in the leading role.
He is also in charge of rehearsals
for the production.
Rights to the play for Ann Arbor
presentation were secured by Pro-
fessor Wallace through personal
acquaintance with the author. This
melodrama, in which all of the
scenes are laid with the prison as
a background, is rated by the "The-
atre Arts Monthly" as one of the
"complete smashes" of the last cur-
rent season on Broadway. It was
also prominently mentioned as this
year's winner of the Pulitzer prize.

Secretary Says Bowles' Defense

(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, July 12.-While print-

election July 22, Mayor B o W 1 e s

I was given out prematurely and un-
intentionally Friday, he said.
When informed of this, Oakley
E. Distin, chief supervisor of elec-
tions, merely remarked:
Ballots Being Printed
"The first batch of 5,000 absentee
voters' ballots is being printed
These ballots contain the Mayor's
defense as filed with the City Elec-
tion Commission Friday. The state-
ment asserts that Mayor Bowles
"has saved the taxpayers thousands
of dollars;" Detroit "never had bet-
ter law enforcement;" "the recall
is a fraudulent conspiracy," and
"what the recall will actually de-
cide is whether the people or The
I Detroit News and the Detroit Free
Press shall govern the city."
Branion did not disclose in what
way the Mayor would seek to alter
his statement.
Other developments in the recall
campaign follow:
1. Mayor Bowles spoke over
the radio in defense of the ap-
pointment of Police Commis-
sioner Wilcox.

2. Walter B. Cary, chairman
- of the recall committee, assail-
ed the Mayor in a radio speech
for claiming credit for the 1930-
1931 tax rate reduction.
3. Mayor Bowles addressed a
gathering of 85 Negroes at 635

persons at Dom Polski 3426

the West Side Political Club.

5. Dr. Paul G. Rohr, John W.
Smith's campaign manager a

Bowles' campaign manager, and
A. J. Kirkpatrick put in charge
of Bowles headquarters at 622

The introduction to Mayor Bowles'
defense follows:
"The law allows the Mayor a 200-I
word defense against the reasons
for his recall. It is enough to say
that these accusations are mali-
cious and untrue."1
