Governor Advocates Classification
To Legislature Following
Conviction Of Woman

CALLS RUM SAL E FELONY
(11Y A -sciaedPes)
LANSING, Mich., Dec. 13.-Gov.
Fred W. Green today advocated a
classification by tne Legislature of
crimes that should be punishable
under the mandatory life sentence}
section of the criminal code.
He asserted the Legislature
should state implicitly whether
liquor law violations should fall in
the category which requires life
imprisonment for four.
The Governor's recommendation
followed the conviction WednesdayI
of Mrs. Eta Mae Miller, of Lansing,
of a charge of violating the liquor
laws for the fourth time. Her con-
vicition makes a life sentenceI
mandatory.
"Some members of the Legis-
lature have complained that they
did not realize liquor law viQlations+
were included in the blanket des-
cription of felonies contained in
the code," the Governor said. "If{
there was such a misunderstand-
ing it should be corrected.
"I believe the Legislature should
list in the code, by name, the
crimes which should be punishableI
under the habitual criminal sec-
tion. This would set forth exactly'
wbat was intended and would leave
no room for argument." a
The Governor said he does not
believe liquor law violations should
be taken out of the classification of Lord Thompson
felonies, but he does think; the who is in the United States at-

"It is much to be doubted," said ?
Dr. Frank E. Robbins, assistant to
the president, "that all of the per-
sons on the undeliverable mail list
will call for their mail at the de-!
livery window of the postoffice.*
For instance, there appears on the
list the name of John A. Fairlie,
who left the University in 1909 and
who is now a professor at the Uni-
versity of Chicago. M. K. Jessup is'
at present in South Africa with the
Lamonte-Hussey expedition at th-
Lamonte observatory, and will:
probably experience difficulty in
asking for his correspondence.

Robbins, "can certainly be no other

merly dean of the School of Busi-:

quite amusing to find a letter ad-
dressed to Wilson H. Yost. This
proves that there is someone who
