many new and old students, while

Local Bootlegger
'MUscles' In, Out
Ann Arbor has been at least
secondarily affected by Chicago's
gangland tactics.
One of the local purveyors of
the forbidden liquids, it is un-
derstood, found his trade mater-
ially decreased during the Sum-
mer Session and turned his at-
tention to new fields. Knowing
a large number of students in
Chicago, he left for the Cook
county metropolis and, began to
"muscle in" in a small way.
But it was just a few days un-
til the former Ann Arbor "mer-
chant" found himself in a corner,
staring down the muzzle of an
ominous-looking gun. His hands
were reaching for the ceiling.
"You're leaving for Detroit by
noon, tomorrow," he was inform-
ed by a large man who looked as
if he meant it.
"And I left," he explained.
He is now in the less lucrative
but much more healthy environs
of Michigan.
U. S. Prepared
To Hear Debt
Cut Proposals
Europe Wants to Reduce
Eleven Billions Owed to
Ainerica .
WASHINGTON, July 8.-(AP)-
The United States stands ready to
'hear appeals from European powers
for a reduction of the eleven bil-
lion dollars they owe this Country
on loans during and immediately
after the World War.
Since Europe has finally agreed
at Lausanne to cut Germany's
reparations to $750,000,000, the State
Department said today that the
United States is willing to consider
individual proposals for a revision
of debts for the 15 nations which
owe this Country.
No promises have been made by
the United States. But this Gov-
ernment has stated repeatedly in.
recent months that it would grant
a rehearing to European debtorsj
individually after they have agreed
among themselves to settle repara-
tions.
The United States has insisted
that it had no interest in repara
tions as it refused to take any from
Germany.
Until the Lausanne Conference
works out its agreement in detail
and the full text is available to the
State Department, Secretary Stim-
son will not be able to arrange plans
for hearing appeals.
Any change in the amount of war
debt payments would have to be ap-
proved by Congress, which is on
record against further reduction or
cancellation. Both the House and
Senate took this position in approv-
ing the Hoover one-year morator-
ium on intergovernmental debts.
Russia Keeps
/
Workers Busy
In Production
Hultine States Tractor
Factories: Putting Out
150 Units Per Day
Russian tractor factories are put-
ting out 150 units per day even dur-
ing these times of depression.
The. authority for this statement

is Jacob Hultine of the local prole-
tarian party who worked for several
months in the Russian plants and
for several years in the factories of
the United States. Hultine compar-
ed the lot of the worker in Russia
with that of the laborer in this
country in a lecture yesterday after-
noon in Natural Science auditorium.
/ "In Russia," Hultine said, "every-
one is busy. The workers put en-
thusiasm in their work because they
know that there is a purpose be-
hind it. They know that the factor-
ies are theirs. They work seven
hours a day. They are not driven
like slaves as they are in this coun-
try. They can stop to smoke a cig-
arette if they want to. The work-
men pick their own foremen. If
they are not satisfied with them
they can have them removed."

Stems Beer Tide

Sen. William E. Borah, Idaho Re-

Borah Blocks 1
Bingham Plan
On Beer Vote'
Speaker Garner Receives
Petition Asking Ballotz
Before Adjournment t
WASHINGTON, July 8.-(AP)-
The whirling prohibition controversy1
swirled about both sides of the cap-
itol today in extended debate, butt
there was no final decision on pro-
posals to repeal the Eighteenthi
Amendment and to legalize beer. 1
In the Senate, a move by Senator1
Bingham, Connecticut Republican,'
to obtain a vote on his bill to legal-
ize beer, was thwarted temporarilyE
through a parliamentary maneuver
by Senator Borah, Idaho Republi-
can.
A little earlier, the Senate debat-
ed vigorously but reached no agree-
ment on 'a motion by Senator Bar-
bour, New Jersey Republican, to
bring up for consideration his legis-
lation for repeal of' the Eighteentht
Amendment.
The motion remained on the cal-
endar, however, and that will per-
mit a decision before adjournment.I
Barbour said he would press for an
early vote.
On the House side a petition
signed by 77 Republicans asking for1
an opportunity to vote on the legal-
ization of beer before adjournment
was presented to Speaker Garner.
After Borah had displaced the
Bingham proposal with other legis-
lation, the Connecticut Republican
charged that Drys were attempting
to save the "timid souls in the Dem-
ocratic Party" from having to vote
on prohibition.
Borah, a prohibitionist, contended
a currency expansion bill he. intro-
duced as a substitute for the beer
"rider" on the home loan bank
measure "is of more concern than
either beer or red liquor."
The Borah proposal thus became
the pending question before the
Senate and Bingham late in the day
withdrew his beer amendment, but
he promptly informed newspaper-
men he intended to offer it again.

House Threatens
Probe Of Federal
Reserve, Treasury

McFadden, Hoover Foe on
Moratorium, Presents a
Resolution for Sweeping
Inquiry
Michener, Garner
Promise Support
Spea1er Will Request Fa-
vorable Action by Rules
Committee to Bring Mat-
ter Out
WASHINGTON, July 8-(AP)-A
sweeping investigation of the treas-
ury and federal reserve system im-
pended tonight after a house floor
exchange during which Speaker
Garner pledged his, support for the
inquiry.
"The Rules committee meets at 11
o'clock tomorrow morning," Garner
said in the midst of the debate.
'Speaking as I may for the major-
ity, I will request them to bring out
the resolution ofs the gentlemai
from Pennsylvania, Mr. McFadden,'
put it on passage and make this in,
vestigation."
Representative M i c h e n e r (R.,
Mich.,) was acting as Republican
loor leader in the absence of Rep-
resentative Snell. Garner asked him
if he would help to pass the resolu-
tion for the inquiry
"Yes," replied Michener. "I think
E will."
Includes (lederal Reserve
Garner later told newspaper men
that if an inquiry is ordered the
resolution will b drafted to include
the treasury, the comptroller of the
currency .and federal reserve .board.
The 'discussion was started by Mc-
Fadden (R., Penn.), who in a speech
urging action on his 'resolution for
an inquiry reminded Garner that
the. letter has said he favored an
investigation.
The Speaker was sitting on the
Democratic side listening to the de-
bate. For the first time this session
he interrupted another member.
"I still have the same opinion I
expressed at that time," Garner said.
"The reason I .have not rushed t
rules committee investigation
manded by the gentleman fr
Pennsylvania are two:
"For the last six months the
country has been very much dis-
turbed in economic matters. I did
not want to investigate the treasury
department with a view to having
the people of the country lose con-
fidence in it.
"The only thing they seem to have
left is confidence in the govern-
ment of the. United States in its fis-
cal matters. To make an investiga-
tion at this time and discover such
things as the gentleman from Penn-
sylvania and I believe would be dis-
covered in that department would
certainly unsettle that confidence
and would, not be beneficial to the
American people.
"Certainly, I thought that if we
undertook to do it at this time with
an election immediately in front of
us, it would be charged during the
campaign that we attempted to use
the investigation for partisan pur-
poses. These are the two reasons
why we did not ask 'for it to be
done."
Argues With Michener
"The Speaker has said that he
does not want this investigation for
the simple reason that he believes,
in substance, that it would develop
corruption ad fraud in the treas-
ury department," Michener inter-
rupted.
"In other words, this man in this
high position tells the country that
in his judgment there is fraud and
corruption in the treasury depart-
ment and he says that if the coun-
try were to 'learn at this time, it
might have a bad effect on the
country.".

"I did not say 'fraud and corrup-
tion,'" Garner retorted.
Only a handful of members were
present during that discussion which
came a few minutes before adjourn-
ment.

CHERBOURG, France, July 8.-j
(AP)-Strong currents and a rising
tide halted efforts to salvage the
sunken French submarine Promethee
today and small harbor craft, un-
equipped for their heavy task, sought,
shelter in the harbor.
Early tomorrow they will load
chains and cables and heavy lines
and steam out again to the spot,
seven miles off Cape Levi, where the
Promethee lies in 40 fathoms.
It is hoped that the Italian sal-
vage ship Artiglio II and her sister
ship, the Rosto, will be there to help.
The Naval authorities asked for
their assistance today and they
headed for Cherbourg.
A scout ship, moving back and
forth in the area where the sub-
marine sank, spotted the hull this
morning and dropped a buoy there.
A few minutes later the Promethee's'
small telephone buoy was discov-
ered and for a time it was hoped it
might still be possible to talk with
some of the more than 60 men who
went down with the ship.
This hope proved groundless, for
there was no sound from the other
end of the telephone wire. There
were bubbles on the surface, but

Dean Wells Says Capone Had
Part in Campus Bootleg circles

Pollock Will Observe
July Reich Elections
Prof. James K. Pollock, of the po-
litical science department, sailed last
night from New York for Germany
on the Bremen. He is making the
trip especially to observe the Ger-
man Reichstag elections, July 31,
and will not return until the re-
sumption of school in September.

By GUY M. WHIPPLE, JR. J
Charges that Alphonse CaponeJ
"ran" bootlegging activities on the
Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota. and Wis-
consin campuses were made in a
statemenmt to The Daily yesterday by
Miss Agnes Wells, present Dean of
Women at Indiana university and
former social director of Helen New-
berry dormitory. Miss Wells added,'
however, that she believes the
younger generation drinks a great
deal less than their forefathers.
She based her charge against Ca-
pone on a New York Times article
of July 2, 1931, and contacts made
with students on the Michigan

held her present post, Dean Wells
has had what amounts to personal
supervision of 13 sororities and 3
dormitories, housing well over 600
women students. Important steps in
student self government have been
taken in this time, among them be-
ing and organizations of "house
groups" which rule on violations of
regulations.
"The houses at Indiana control
all matters commonly relegated to
faculty bodies," Miss Wells said,
"and we have found this arrange-
ment satisfactory. The girls bring
their problems to the Committee on
Student Affairs on their own hook
if they find them too knotty."
