Calls For Reserve Of Three Million
Dollars To Be Used In Times
Of Approaching Panic
(By Associted Press)
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 21.-Ralph
0. Brewster of Maine, acting upon
the request of Herbert Hoover out-
lined today before the Conference
of Governors a plan for th creation
of a nationwide construction re-
serve of $3,000,000,000 to be released
in times of over-production and
Gov. Brewster recommended that
authorities store up a reserve of
construction projects equal to two
years normal expenditure, on im-
provements and release this re-
serve at times of unemployment.
Such a fund, he said,,ould be one
of the best forms of insurance
against national panics.
"These views of the way in which
the states and other public author-
ities may cooperate with the fed-
eral government in controlling in
some measure construction work
for the common good," said the
governor, "are presented to the
Conference of Governors at the re-
quest of Herbert Hoover as an an-
thorized exposition of a- portion of
his program for stabilizing the
prosperity of the United States.
Co-Operation Stressed
"In requesting the presentation
of this project to the Conference
of Governors, Mr. Hooer emphas
ized the importance of establish-
ing co-operation between federdl,
state and municipal governments
in accordance with tha proposals
outhned at the time of the unem-
picyment conference in 1922"

said, is tle next lesson America

cal personage who lived in the
presence of plenty but never could
touch it.
"Such conditions," he said,
"constitute a tragedy and a tra-
vesty upon the organizing genius
of American business men."
"With an annual expenditure of
seven billions upon construction,
America is in a position to sta-
bilize prosperity to a most remark-
able extent," he added. "Public

construction but to the renewal
and extension of capital facilities

recommendation of the one who
has received the overwhelming
mandate of the American people to
guide and guard their progress in

Gov. Brewster told the governors
that no infringement of legislative
prerogatives was contemplted, be-
cause no project could be carried
out except as the legislature might
direct, although the rapidity of the
construction program within de-
fined limits could be accelerated or
retarded to synchronize with na-
tional and local needs.

. The novelty of foreign radio con-
nections has worn toff for the most.
of the people of the United States
and it is no longer hard to con-
ceive of receiving out of the way
stations over the ether in one's
own sitting room. Of greater nov-
elty and a little harder to im -
agine is talking with one's friendsl
in a foreign Vand over the tele-'
phone. The Michigan Bell Tele-
phone company, however, has been
able to make that very thing a
fact and is able to connect any
person in the United States with
almost any point in Europe at
In an announcement made today
by J. Kelly, manager of the Ann
Arbor exchange of the company, it
was stated that trans-Atlantic
telephone service had been com-
pleted with Buda-pest in Hun-
gary. This, he said, was only a
new addition to the already num-
erous list of foreign nations that
the United States had 'phone con-
nections with. The rate to Buda-
Pest is $55.50 for three minutes
and $18.50 for each additional
minute. A report charge of $7.50
is added to this rate.
The countries having connec-
tions are: to London, $12.50 for
three minutes, to Ireland, Scotland
and Wales, $48.00 for three minutes
and $16.00 for each additional min-
ute; all points in Germany $53.25
and $17.75 for each additional min-
ute; Berlin, Frankfort-on-Maine,
and Hamburg, $55.50 and $18.50:
with an additional charge of $8.50
for report; Stolkholm, Sweden,
$54.75 and $18.25 with a report
charge of $7.25.
This is only a few of the con-
nections, Mr. Kelly said, but it
serves to give an idea of the ex-
tent of the service and also their
respective rates

Several bartenders, approached
by newspaper investigators posing
as youths, were found reluctant to
sell the liquor since the death of
William Adomaytis, who was slain
Sunday during a gambling argu-
ment with Anthony Junkus in the
latter's ice cream parlor. High
school students told police they
frequently bought liquor from Jun-
Police Commissioner Russell or-
dered police to close all establish-
ments found selling liquor or op-
erating slot machines near' schools.
Teachers and students, although
divided in their reactions to the
intensive cleanup carhpaign, ad
iitted the existence of drinking
and gambling among both boys and
girls. Some, however, termed the
investigation an "outrage" and a
Ireflection on the conduct of the
city's 80,000 high school students.
