"I do not see that I have any, au-
thorityto suppress the film'Cleopatra'
until it has been shown and proved
unfit for the 'public," said Mayor Er-
nest M. Wurster yesterday when ap-
proached by the Women's club of the
city regarding the showing of Theda
Bara in the film "Cleopatra."
Mayor Wurster stated that he had
hot seen the picture himself and while
he had the utmost confidence in the
opinions of the people who had ap-
proached him concerning the film, he
could not act without more definite
Manager Not Responsible
Mr. J. I. Wanzeck, manager of the
Majestic theater where the film is
booked, said, "I shall be glad to do
all in my power to satisfy the people
of Ann Arbor in regard to the pic-
ture, for I am in no way responsible
for its appearance in this city. We
take what is sent us and have no
choice in the matter."
Mr. Wanzeck added that tere was
no place where it would be possible
to cut the film, but he invited any sug-
gestions which objectors to the film
could give in making it more suitable.
Picture Passed Censorship
"The picture has been passed by the
censorship boards of this state, and
this in itself, together with the fact
that the picture has never been sup-
pressed in any city where it was book-
ed, speaks favorably for the film,"
Mr. Wanzeck stated.
Mayor Wurster said that he belieed
the name of the film had made people
look at the picture unfavorably..
"There is a whole class of pictures
that I would like to see put out of ex-
istence, but as long as some are run
we can not discriminate between films
of so similar a caliber."
"I shall, however be glad, if I have
overlooked any facts in consideration
of this film, to have my attention called
to any such lapse."

or university, or are in business, to
attend Michigan's summer session this

dean of the summer session, yesterday
Dean Kraus further stated that the

that sufficient men will gain benefit
from the camp to justify the expense
and the time spent by the men.
