had already been reduced after the -special session
of the Legislature for the year 1932-33. Percent-

other institutions for men of ability and out-

he University Budget
Is Balanced..
"The budget for the academic year
1933-4, which has been recently adopted
by the Board of Regents, is the result of
conscientious efforts to scientifically and
judliciouisly balance operating expenses
With'the income as set by the Legislature.
In all respects this was done in such a
manner as to result in the least possible
amount of harm to the University."
-President Alexander G. Ruthven.
T HE TRUTH of the above state-
ment by the University's president
is well borne out in the budget which was adopte
y the Regents. In its various phases, including
general services and the reduction of the teaching
personnel alike, this budget handles the current
economic problems with which the University is
faced.in the very best possible manner.
It' must be remembered by those unacquainted
ith the administrative problems of a large edu-
cational plant that the difficulties presented along
with the legislative allowance for the comiing year
nIe ssitated extreme care and investigation. Each
dejbartment had to be cautiously analyzed. Thougli
reductions had to be made it was important that
they be made without seriously crippling any unit.
The number of courses offered were in many in-
stances reduced. 'Teaching loads were increased
ahd research programs were given up. And yet
thfese "ianges could come only after the serious
Cdn ideration of the conditions involved in each
individual case."
The heads of each of the varioIs departments
aid i its were consulted. They were made ac-
61uinted with the situation as it actually existed
Snd were given a voice in the arrangements which
were finally effected. No steps were haphnzard-
ously taken; careful consideration was given the
marny intricate factors involved in the'varying sit-
N'- member of the teaching staff or employee in
the general offices was discharged until such ac-
tion was shown to be the best possible method of
effecting a saving. Such dismissals, in each in-
stance, came as a result of thorough investigation
regarding a'l the factors involved-the man's
worth to the department, his indispensibility to
the University, the length of his residence here,
llis abilities in general.
No courses were given up until that seemed the
better thing to do. Research programs were dis-
added only after due thought. And, in every re-
spect,changes were made only after those ac-
quainted with the factors involved were con-
sulted. The viewpoint of instructors was consid-
ered, as well as the viewpoint of older members
of the faculty.c

institution which they represent. In meeting the;
demands of the one they have not been blind to
the needs of the other. The University would have
been better off 'if these changes had not
been nebessitated But they were; and in making
them the 'officials recognized "necessity's sharp
pinch" and gave the University a budget for which
'under'the circumstances--we have every right to
feel grateful and appreciative.

Screen Reflections
Pour stars means extraordinary; three stars very
good; two stars good; one star just another picture;
no stars keep away; from it.
(Showing Wednesday and Thursday)
Apparently following the model set by "Grand
Hotel" and '"Twentieth Century," 'in which the
action takes place within'the confinesof a limited
background, "By Whose Hand" is a mystery story
unfolded on a train bound for San Francisco.
With a surprise ending, it is typical of the con-
ventional mystery tale which keeps an audience
on edge as the plot unfolds.
Ben Lyon, as Jimmy Hawley, a reporter (he also
played the part of the newspapermai in "I Cover
the Waterfront"), doesn't profess to be a detec-
tive, but his newspaper training enables him to
trap an escaped convict and help unravel a string
of mysterious happenings.
As mentioned, all this takes place on a trans-
continental train at night, which affords oppor-
'unty for vivid camera work. On the same train,
strangely enough, are many underworld charac-
ters who contribute to the interesting develop-
As the picture opens, cops ae following a 'tip
-that Delmar, an escaped convict, will try to make
a get-away on the Grand Epress. The sequence
of happenings on the train, including the murder
of a wealthy jeweler and several others, leads to
the unusual climax of the story.
Included in the cast are Nat Pend eton, Ken-
neth Thomson, Dwight Frye, and William Halli-
gan. Barbara Weeks plays opposite Ben Lyon in
6he romance issue.
Boris Karloff, Constance Cummings, Robert
Young, "and Leo Carrillo in "The Guilty Genera-
tion" supply the action for the second feature
picture of the current bill.
HOLLYWOOD--Who will inherit Mr. and Mrs.
Douglas Fairbanks' mantle as Hollywood's "ideal
For 13 years Mary 'n' Doug held the spotlight
as the movies' happiest pair. Then came the brief
announcement of their intended separation and
the strong hint that Mary will seek a divorce on
the grounds of incompatibility, which statement
of 29 words (also telling that lovenest Pickfair is
for sale) startled a world of admirers who had the
romantic pair on a pedestal for so long.
Looking over the field, one can find many
worthy candidates for the honorable position just
vacated by the Fairbanks. The problem is, who
shall 'be named first?'
Would it be the Harold Lloyds (Mildred-Davis),
whom the taint of scandal never has touched,
happy with their three children, married nearly 11.
years? Harold and Mildred hae refrained from
dramatizing their affection, which makes their
romance seem all the more sincere.
Many Competitors
Runners-up for first position are many. Among
them are Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon; whose mar-
riage seems to have taken, although Hollywood
frankly was skeptical four years ago. The Rich-
ard Arlens (she was Jobyna Ralston before she
retired to bear. Richard Ralston Arlen) also
are logical condidates.'
And so are June Collyer and Stuart Erwin. De-
spite occasional' rumors the Barbara Stanwyck-
Frank Fay romance seems a lasting one. Com-
pletely happy, also, seem to be Frederic March
and Florence Eldridge, with their adopted' daugh-
ter. Other top-flighters include the Edward G.
Robinsons (recently blessed with an heir) and the
James Cagneys.
Many others in Hollywood are, according to re-
port, thoroughly happy. Ruby Keeler and Al Jol-
son, Norma Shearer and Irving Thalberg, the

Warner Baxters, the John Boleses, the Richard
Barthelmesses, the Clive Brooks, the Leslie How-
ards and-well, there must be dozens more.x
Three families who are not in the "young ro-
mahtic" class -'deserve mention. 'They are the
Cantors, the Rogerses and the Browns.

Musical Events
a 1
The program of last-night's concert, made up of
ensemble type of music, began with "Grave" by
Friedmann Bach. This proved gratifying in its
treatment by Professor Pick and Professor Chris-
tian. The tectures of cello and 'organ compliP
mented..each other surprisingly, for the cello tone
never was subordinated by the organ, while the
contrapuntal theme carried by the organ was al-
ways clear and sustained. The calm graceful piece
was marked especially by the handling by Profes-
sor Pick of the piano sections, and the extreme
high ranges.
In contrast. to tine 'deliberate moodf of the
"Grave," the "Sonata" of Locatelli, played by Pro-
fessor Brinkman and Professor Pick, was of a
duicker- staccato nature. In the first and third
movements, traits of duet work dominated, while
the intervening mnoment was of solo nature. This
again was lyric, as the "Grave." and here Profes-
sor Pick was at his best in tempo and sustained
mood. The crispness of the piano as opposed to
the richness of the organ provided a new interest
to the accompanying medium.
The Mozart trio' for violin, viola, and piano em-
ployed careful ensemble work inevery aspect. The
whole is' conceived in 'the Italian style of melody,
brilliance, embellishment, and flourishing. Each
instrument has its amount of solo work, and these
spots lost nothing of their grace or dashing speed
in the performance. The viola tone' as produced
by Mr. Besekirsky had nothing of the traditional
nasal quality, but'rather'a warm and husky sweet-
ness. Mr. Brinkman was his usual capable self,
playing with strength and fluency. Mr. Hamuilton's
ease and dispatch ranked him on a par with the.
other two players. In 'the cadenzas and the' many
dialogues between violin and viola, that quality
peculiar to concerted strings appeared forcibly.
The ensemble workaenhanced this typical Mo-
zartian music adequately.
Sowerby's "Mediaeval Poem" came next as a
modern duet between piano and organ. Mr. Brink-
man and'Professor Christian maintained a con'-.
sistent mood of mighty jubilation tempered with
awe throughout 'the, somewhat 'lengthy "piece.
Again the two tonal textures balanced in dialogue,
question and answer, and built up grandly when
they were cOmbined. The organ supplied its depth
and richness as well as religious association, while
the piano, in clear, plastic phrases, cut into the
organ background. The mysticism of this poem
reached a climax at the introduction of a human
The audience, in a receptive attitude approved
highly of this program.

WASH-INGTON-Whatever is to be the final
product of the London economic conference, Eu-
ropean diplomats have had a taste of Roosevelt's
ability to gauge an international as well as a
domestic politico-economic situation which ought
to have considerable bearing on all future diplo-
matic moves of his administration.
The President's serene confidence that the con-
ference dare not adjourn under 'pressure. of the,
disgruntled continental gold bloc was justified.
More than that, in the resolution adopted by"
the conference steering "bureau," Mr. Roosevelt
had the satisfaction of seeing the blunt state-
ment made that whatever abbreviation " of the
agenda resulted from the Franco-American clash,
over stabilization was due to the gold bloc, not
to the United States.
The second "whereas" of the non-adjourn-.
ment decision said that because of unspecified
"circumstances which have recently risen" gold
countries were "obliged to declare" that it was
temporarily impossible for them "to take part in
any monetary discussions."
In the face of that official explanation of the
situation, unanimously approved by the control-
ling body of the conference, President Roose-
velt could well receive the news with beaming
smile-but no immediate.comment.
It would be difficult for gold bloc spokesmen
Who had found 'themselves forced to accept pub-
licly responsibility for the temporary partial
breakdown of the agenda to get world-wide public
attention for subsequent explanations holding Mr.
Roosevelt himself to blame.
At the height of' the stabilization row, Mr.
Roosevelt characterized'it as a "minor" matter, a
question of "definitions." That non-adjournment
resolution seems to sustain his contention.
Hull To The Fore
There is another byproduct 'of the London sit-
uation not to be ignored. It was more or less as-
sumed when Mr. Roosevelt named Secretary Hull
to head the delegation that the special usefulness
of the cabinet dean would lie in tariff discussions.
That is and was through his long servvice in
H9use and Senate Mr. Hull's chosen specialty.
With the tariff aspects of the London parley in-
definitely adjourned, Hull's place in the picture,
already spmewhat obscured by the comings and
goings of Professor Moley and others, was not
very clear.
In the .adjournment crisis, however, the quiet,
almost shy-mannered Tennessean exhibited him-
self in quite a new light. He forsook the back-
ground for the leading role as spokesman for the
American viewpoint and from all accounts ac-
quitted himself in distinguished fashion.
Secretary's Prestige Helped
The show-down added greatly to his personal

Leebove Is Put
On Blacklist By
LANSING, July 18. - (IP) - The
Michigan Legislature today was on
record as "regretting" the activities
i Gov. William A. Comstock's friend,
Isaac Leebove, and demanded that
Leebove be removed from any par-
ticipation in State affairs.
This stand was taken by the House
Monday with its acceptance of the
report of its lobby investigating corn-
mittee. The committee's report, which
exonerated all legislators of corrup-
tion, blamed Leebove for causing
"scandal and suspicion" in the State
B. E. Henderson, vice president of
the Household Finance corporation of
Chicago, today denied he had at-
tempted to bribe Representative
Frank J. Berka: of Saginaw in con-
nection with small loan legislation.
Henderson sent a telegram to the
House lobbying committee declaring
statements that he had offered $5,-
000 to Berka "are false and I vigor-
ously deny them."
The lobby investigating committee
met this morning but adjourned, sub-
ject to the call of Chairman Law-
rence P. O'Neill, without hearing
further testimony of Representative
Berka charged in testimony before
the committee Monday night that
Henderson called him at his hotel
and asked for an interview. Berka
said he met Henderson, that they
'"walked around the capitol'"' and
that Henderson then told him he
would pay him $1,000 in cash and
send him $4,000 in later installments
if 'the committee recommended a
monthly interest rate on small loans
of not less than 2 1-2 per cent.
Representative George C. Watson,
Republican of Capac, also a member
of the conference committee consid-
ering the small loan measure, said
that he also was approached. He tes-
tified that a' man, whose name he
did not recall, met him as he left the
capitol elevator and told him it would
be "worth $5,600" to have the small
loan bill killed.

The Eddie Cantors- "mamma" and "daddy" to

pair who, it is obvious, are still in love after a

Joe E. and Mrs. Brown are happy, too. Nor do
they ever bore their friends by telling how much
they're in love; they'd rather talk about their five
