Indian Office Plans Will Prevent
Drastic Economy; Dam t
Funds Needed.
WASHINGTON, May 14.-(P)-A
little trimming around the edges
rather than any major surgery isj
the economy suffering which inter-
ior departments officials plan tor
lay before President Hoover in the
coming week-end conference at his
Rapidan camp.
They do not see in their domain
anything to compare with the
abandonment of 20 to 30 armyl
posts ordered for the war depart-
ment. Major cuts, they fear, are
impossible unless there is .a change
in general policy as to public works.
Indian Office Needs Money.
The Indian office, which receives
one of the biggest shares of the
total appropriation, has just in-
augurated a policy which hinges
on employment of high-caliber per-
sonnel at attractive salaries.
It received for the fiscal year
1932 at net appropriation of about
$25,000,000. The staff reorganiza-
tion and its construction program
will require that figure as a mini-
mum for next year. If a material
cut were made officials fear their
program would be wrecked.
Shrinkage in Bureau. y
There will be unquesu L±1ably a
shrinkage in the work of the recla-
mation bureau. Tobogganing oil
prices and other causes are expect-
ed to cut the reclamation fund on
which it operates principally from
$11,000,000 to about $6,000,000. How-
ever, as a revolving fund, this has
little bearing on the general treas-
ury condition. Building Hoover,
dam will take another $15,000,000,
as in this year, and the bureau
hopes to get $5,000,000 to start the
All-American canal.

AT THE MAJESTIC

Our special and avowed partiality
toward that captivating slim brun-
ette type so charmingly portrayed
by one Dorothy Jordan makes any
great liking for one of her pictures

"Young Sinners" we feel safe in
judging it good entertainment. It'sl

been suddenly but wisely rushedl
from New York in place of thosel
ill-fated "Viennese Nights," the lat-!
ter failing to mix well with Ann
Arboraudiences.
To return to the sinning, the plot
concerns the plight of a young
chap with liquor on the hip, dough
on~i the mind, pains in the heart,
water on the. brain, and a Park
Avenue penthouse. The old man,
who wasn't such an amateur him-
self, reluctantly turned this chip
off the block over to Tom McGuire
who ran a private training camp
for wayward youth. Avoiding all
tendency toward any triteness, the
story has been deftly handled with
both comedy and human interest
appeal-let alone that provided by
the fair Dorothy as a tantalizing'
.young maid in love with the dissi-
pating son (Hardie Albright).
Thomas Meighan is a distinct
surprise in an entirely different
type of role as a tough Irish train-
er. On the whole, "Young Sinners"
rates a high B.

BRADENTON, Fla., May 14.-(AP)
-An extinct beast armored like a
miniature war tank moved through
the Florida jungle 40,000 years ago.
It was the giant armadillo, whose
hide was bite-proof.
Parts of its armor, and bones and
teeth have been discovered near
here by Walter W. Holmes, field
woi ker in paleontology for., the
American Museum of Natural His-
tory, and his associate, James E
Moore of Sarasota. This is the first
specimen ever found of a new
genus of armadillos, and has been
named Holmesina Septentrionalis
in honor of Mr. Holmes.
The hard, bony plates that cov-
ered the giant armadillo's bacl
were flexible as the chain mail. o
King Arthur's knights. When dan-
ger threatened the animal could
roll up in a ball that was tough
1 enough to discourage even the
saber-toothed tiger, which alsC
lived in Florida in those days.
Including its tail the giant arma-
dillo must have been nearly six
feet long and as large around as a
man, says Holmes. Its teeth shov
that it was a vegetarian. They havk
flat surfaces for grinding food in-
stead of points for biting.
The giant armadillo died out
perhaps because the Florida climatE
did not remain warm enough tc
produce the food it needed, it i
suggested by Barnum Brown, cura-
tor of fossil reptiles at the museum
There are no armadillos in Florida
today.
The ancestors of the giant arma-
dillo, scientists believe, migrated
from South America to Florida
after the isthmus of Panama rosf
from the sea and connected the
continents a million or more year
ago.

Detroit Man Gives Estimate of
Cost for Transoceanic
Dirigible Service.4
LONDON, May 14-(P)--A regu-
larly scheduled transatlantic dirigi-
ble service, consisting of three large
metal, covered dirigibles, carrying
passengers, mail and express be-
tween London, Montreal and Wash-
ington, should return an annual
profit of $6,265,800, excluding taxes,
on a total investment of $30,000,-
000, Carl B. Fritsche, president of
the Aircraft Development Corpora-
tion of Detroit, said today in an
address before the Royal Aeronaut-
'ical Society.
"Only a few persons can under-
stand the importance of continuing:
airship development by reading en-
gineers' reports," Mr. Fritsche said.
"I have tried to calculate the im-
portance of the airship in terms of
the arithmetic of trade which the
general public understands."
Mr. Fritsche presented a com-
plete financial statement covering
a year's operation of his hypotheti-
cal dirigible service between Lon-
don and America. He said that
since the design of the first metal-
clad dirigible, the ZMC-2, was be-
gun in Detroit in 1921, careful
mathematical calculations h a v e
been made concerning the design,
and operation of metal-clad dirigi-

Over sixty are expected to attend
the Forestry field day at Saginaw
forest next Saturday, it was an-
nounced yesterday by the Forestry
club which is sponsoring the affair.
A full day of activity has been
planned which will begin at 9
o'clock with pistol shooting and
end with canoe races at about 4
o'clock in the afternoon.
The sawing, chopping, baseball
and tug-of-war events will be out-
stan~ding. Sawing will consist of two
man teams handling cross cut saws
and working on logs, while in the
chopping event, judges will look to
the ingenuity of the participant in
handling an axe. The indoor base-
ball game in the afternoon should
be a warmly contested affair as
many who will probably play hav
attended last year's Forestry Sum-
mer camp where an excellent in-
dodr team was formed. It is hoped,
the tug-of-war can be fought across
the pond in the forest. Prizes that
will be awarded to the high point
men in the three classes to be
formed will consist of double bitted
axes.
The participants will meet at th
Natural Science building at half-
past eight on Saturday morning
and will proceed immediately t
Saginaw forest.
