Prohibition Machinery
to be Reorganized
at Early Date
Chief Executive Asks
Committee to Thrash
Out Details
(BY Associated P css)
By Richard L. Turner
WASHINGTON, Aug: 1-To ex-
pediate the contemplated reorgan"-
ization of Federal prohibition en-
forcement machinery, President
Hoover has designated John Mc-
Nab, a San Francisco attorney, to
study the situation in cooperation
with interested governmental agen-
cies and formulate recommenda-
tions for Congressional action.
This announcement was made
today by the chief executive who
disclosed at the same time that he
expects specific recommendation to
be ready for transmission to the
capitol at the regular December
session of Congress.
As an additional means of bring-
ing early action, Mr. Hoover is
hopeful that Congress meanwhile
will adopt his suggestion of last
June and appoint a joint commit-
tee to make an inquiry before the
session begins. In this way, he
believes legislation could be f or-
mulated and laid before the two
houses at the outset of the session,
thus' avoiding the delay -of pro-
tractec committee hearing after
this session has begun.
Enforcement To Be 'transferred
Reviewing briefly the general
form the reorganization is to take,
the President said its primary pur-
pose would be a centralization of
responsibility In the department of
Justice. To bring this about, it is
proposed that the adminis'trative
phases of enforcement now under
the jurisdiction of .the Treasury be
transferred to the Justice depart-
ment, giving to that branch of the
government responsibility for both
administration and investigation.
The inquiry also will include
methods of expediting judicial ac-
tion. Mr. Hoover pointed out that
these proposals, "have to do solely
with administration and proceed-
ure in enforcement of the laws and
not with change in the laws them-
McNab Is Old Friend
The President said McNab had
accepted the appointment at the
joint request of himself, Secretary
Mellon, Attorney-General Mitchell
and Chairman Wickersham of the
Law enforcement commission. 'It is
intended that he shall work in co-
operation with the agencies that
Mellon, Mitchell, and Wickersham
represent, possibly to coordinate
their individual findings.
McNab, an old friend and for-
merly a fellow townsman of the
President, came to Washington
yesterday, and since haS been a
house guest of the chief executive.
Because of his long association
with Mr. Hoover, he was chosen to
make the speech placing the Pres-
ident's name in nomination at the
Republican National Convention
last year in Kansas City.
Ann Arbor's interest in the an-

nual National Air Tour starting
saturday from Ford Airport will
center on William Welborn and the
Spartan biplane entered by the
Spartan Aircraft Co., of Tulsa,
Okla., distributed in Michigan and
Ohio by the Flo Flying Services,
Inc., lessee of Ann Arbor Municipal
The Spartan entry, which reach-
ed Ford Airport Monday with 11
other planes participating in the
tour, is similar to the biplanes used
by the Flo company at the Ann
Arbor field. Welborn is a factory
pilot of long experience.

Ann Arbor friends by exchange of'
radio messages.
Several members of the Univer-
sity faculty have received radio
messages from Professor Gould
within the last few days. The re-
cipients of these radiograms plan to
reply to Professor Gould through
the University radio station, 8
AXZ, which is in direct communi-
cation withthe' Byrd station, 135
WFASQ, every Friday night.
In addition to the messages re-
ceived in this direct exchange be-
tween the University and Byrd ex-
pedition stations, some messages
from the Antarctic are received by
the New York Times radio station,

ing, recently received the following
message from Professor Gould:
"Have been thinking of you often.
All of us looking forward to busy
Antarctic summer, then home. Re-
gards to all. Larry Gould."
A somewhat longer message was
sent by Professor Gould to Prof. E.
C. Case, of the department of his-
torical geology and paleontology.
Messages for the expedition can
be sent to the department of elec-
trical engineering for radio trans-
mission, it is announcedby Pro-
fessor Moore. The messages will be
broadcast the Friday night follow-
ing their receipt at the department.
