Reveal 'School For Scandal'
Cast Well-Trained For Show.
Gives Figures To
That U. S. Is Not
By ALTON BRIMMER
Last night's dress rehearsal of
Sheridan's "The School for Scandal,"
which will be presented by the Rep-
ertory Players tonight, Thursday, Fri-
day, and Saturday nights at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, revealed a cast'
well trained and admirably suited for
the roles which they have been cho-
sen to play.
Heading that "scandalous college"
is the famous Lady Sneerwell, at
whose salon one must always be, if
he cares to guard his own character.
This role is being played by Claribel
Baird, who won such great commen-
dation for her portrayal of Bus in last
week's show, "Both Your Houses."
In her employ she has one Snake,
played by James Doll, who lives by the
badness of his character and fears
he would lose all his friends if it were
ever known that he had been be-
trayed into an honest action.
One of habitues of the scandal sa-
lon is Joseph Surface,,who is accord-
ing to Lady Sneerwell, "artful, self-
ish, and malicious --in short, a sen-
timental knave." John Lee Doll
adapts himself most successfully to
this part. Maria, who is the ward of
Sir Peter Teazle, is played with
sweet, simple sincerity by Luella
Dehn. It is for her hand and fortune
that Mr. Joseph Surface is playing
his little game.
As Mrs. Candour who "though a
little talkative, everybody allows her
to be the best-natured and best sort
of woman," the Players present Nan-
cy Bowman. Crabtree, played by
Morris Greenstein, is one not at all
partial as to whom he gossips about,
for he "will abuse a stranger just as
soon as his best friend." His neph-
ew, Sir Benjamin Backbite, "whose
conversation is a perpetual libel on
all his acquaintance" is portrayed by
Frank Funk who has gained a splen-
did following on the Ann Arbor cam-
As Lady Teazle "a girl bred wholly
in the country, who never knew lux-
ury beyond one silk gown, nor dis-
sipation above the annual gala of a
race ball" (that is until she married
Sir Peter), Sarah Pierce can again be
counted upon for another good por-
trayal of a difficult role. Sir Peter
Teazle, as played by Mr. Francis
Compton, cannot fail to delight play-
goers. In Sir Peter's own words we
may be aware of his situation. "'Tis
now six months since Lady Teazle
made me the happiest of men - and
I have been the most miserable dog
The other characters in the playt
include Goddard Light as Sir Harry
Bumper; L. Wayne Smith as Rowley;

To Be Opened
Series Of Demonstrations
Will Be Conducted For'
Officials of the University Observa-
tory, on Observatory Street, will con-
duct a series of demonstrations for
students of the Summer Session on
Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays
Three free trips of inspectidon
through the Observatory plant will
be conducted on each of these nights
beginning at 8:15 p.m., 9:15 p.m., and
10:15 p.m. and continuing for 45
It was emphasized, however, that
in order for the groups to be able to
inspect the observatory thoroughly
each group will be limited to 60 stu-
dents, thereby making it possible for
540 students to make the tour on one
of the three nights.
Students who are desirous of taking
part in the inspection must procure a
ticket at the office of the Director of
the Summer Session in Angell Hall.
Those who make the trip will be af-
forded an opportunity to observe the
heavens through the observatory's 12-
inch refractory telescope.
Continuing, Professor Bennett
stated that in America three ap-
proaches have been attempted to
solve the housing problem. First,
there has been the method of specu-
lative building - the construction of
new houses or apartments for whoever
would buy or rent them.

Gov. Langer Ruled Out
By North Dakota Court
BISMARCK, N. D., July 17.- (R) -
The North Dakota Supreme Court
held today that Gov. William Lan-
ger, under 18 months' sentence for
conspiracy to defraud the United
States government, is disqualified by
his conviction to hold office.
The court held that the duties of
the governor devolved on Lieut.-Gov.
O. H. Olson, who brought the action
to disqualify Langer.
The court said Langer's conviction
of a felony by a Federal Court jury
creates a disability that prevents him
from holding office until his disa-
bility is removed.
Prof. W. H. Hobbs Will

Leaving At 7:15 A.M.
Two large groups will leave here
today on separate University Summer
Session excursions, the larger bound
for Put-in-Bay,'and the second re-
peating the excursion to the Ford
Plant at River Rouge.
The Ford Excursion, sixth of the
summer tours, will be made by two
bus loads of students, under the di-
rection of Prof. Carl J. Coe, director
of excursions for 1934. At 6 p.m. last
night, the office of the Summer Ses-
sion already had 52 reservations for
the trip, and as two buses have been
chartered, it will be possible for 14
more to make arrangements for the
trip this morning.
At the Ford plant the party will
see many of the processes involved in
building up the new Ford, including
the power, plant, machine shops, and
assembly line. The trip was previously
made by one full bus-load a week ago.
Ship Schedules Conflict
Any other students wishing to make,
the trip will have the entire morning'
to make reservations, as the party
will not leave until 12:45. The buses
leave from in front of Angell Hall,
and will return to Ann Arbor at 5:30

be theseventh of the summer excur-
sions, the trip to Put-in-Bay, led by

Are In Controversy Over

New strikes and threats of strikes
continued today to dot the industrial
map of the nation along three coasts
and at many points of the interior.
Most serious was the situation on
the Pacific Coast, but militiamen also
were called out in Minneapolis, where
7,000 truckmen struck for the second
time within a few months over wages
and the right of their union to rep-
resent "warehouse" employees. Only
minor disorders were reported, and
guardsmen were standing by for
The third important sector of the
strike front centered in Alabama,
where 22,000 textile workers struck
over wages and working conditions.
Strikes closed every mill in Hunts-
ville, principal textile center of the
state. Sticks and clubs were used by
the crowds which stormed some of the
mills, forcing shutdowns.
In Connecticut some 500 Dayville
woolen workers and 1,000 Danbury
hatters struck for higher wages.
In New York 19,000 maritime work-
ers threatened a strike, and the execu-
tive board of the International Ladies
Garment Workers approved a pro-
posed strike of 18,000 workers in the
knitted garment trade.

Carl Fischer Goes Route
In 4 To 3 Win Over Joe
DETROIT, July 17. --(A)-The De-
troit Tigers again forged to an ap-
preciable lead in the American League
today, defeating Washington 4 to'3,
while New York was bowing ignobly
to Walter Johnson's Indians at Cleve-
land, 13 to 5.
The game was a pitchers' duel be-
tween Carl Fischer, who went the en-
tire route for the Tigers, and Walter
Stewart, who started, and Al Thomas
for the Griffmen. The Tigers garnered
ten hits off the Washington hurlers,
eight of them off Stewart. All four
of the Tiger runs were charged to
Summary and boxscore of the
game may be found on page four
of this issue.
Washington was held to six hits by
Fischer, but he gave eight free passes.
Timely hitting and classy fielding in
the close spots won the game.
The Tigers won the ball game in
the sixth inning, rallying to put across
three runs and wipe out a 3 -to 1 lead
'which came about through loose
pitching by Fischer and effective
pitching by Stewart in holding the
Tiger bats to four scattered hits pre-
In Detroit's big sixth the Tigers
unleashed a trio of doubles by Geh-
ringer, Greenberg and Owen, scoring
three runs. The lead established by
the sixth inning rally was never really
disputed until the ninth.
In the ninth, with one man out, the
Senators packed the bases on a single
and two walks, but a sizzling double
killing, Gehringer to Rogell to Green-
berg, on a grounder by Ossie Bluege,
batting for Thomas, ended the game.

George Kidwell, conservative labor
leader, said that a resolution of "great
significance" would be acted upon.
This was rumored to be a proposal
that the central issues behind the

limited arbitration" and that the gen-
eral strike be immediately stopped.
"If we can get labor to pass the
resolution we can settle the strike,"

The amount of unemployment
among recent graduates of the Uni-

at the present time as we have been
led to believe, said Prof. George E.

ference, sponsored by the School of

88 per cent replied to the inquiry.
"When the number successful in
obtaining teaching positions is con-
sidered;" continued Professor Myers,
"the class of 1933 has been less for-
tunate than its immediate predeces-
sors., Of the class of 1933, 31 per
cent of those who replied reported
teaching as their occupation during

51.5 per cent; 1930, 56 per cent; and
of the class of 1929, 55.9 per cent.
Of course, these percentages are
affected by the fact that a much
larger number of women graduates
