Capone Evaded Tax on


Million Dollar Income;
Faces Lon Term.
CHICAGO,. June 5. -(IP)- "Scar-
face Al' Capone, the head man of .
Chicago's underworld, was indicted
by a federal grand jury today for
evading the taxes on a six-year in-
come of $1,038,654.84. Three hours
later he surrendered, posted $50,0001
bond and was released.
As on his other recent appear-
ances in public, the gangster was
besieged by hundreds' of curious
persons. He slipped into the fed-
eral building and into the district
court clerk's office almost unnoticed,
but when he left, after having his
bond approved by Federal Judge
John Barnes, Capone had to run
a gauntlet o~f photographers and
elude. a crowd of reporters.

A new travel service is to be in-
augurated next fall by the Alumni
association, according to an an-
nouncement made yesterday by T,
Hawley Tapping, general secretary
of the association.
In conjunction with the Intercol-
legiate Travel Extension service of
the American Express company, an
office will be set up in the Alumni
association offices as a bureau for
travel services among the faculty,
students, and alumni.
The service, which has .been
adopted by the alumni associations
of the leading universities, includesl
routing tours, procuring tickets,
and all other services.
For next year several educational
tours have already been planned by
the office. There is going to be a
language study tour, historical, ar-
chitectural, and industrial tours,
besides the purely recreational tours.
It is also planned to have a spe-
cial Michigan trip to the Olympic

pennies. The coin was success-
fully removed from his throat in
an operation yesterday morning.
He was brought to University
hospital from St. Joseph Thurs-

Series of Mishaps Dogged Ship
Throughout Its Trip; Wing
Burned in Lisbon.
NATAL, Brazil, June 5-(P)--Scv-
en months to the day from the time
she took off at Altenrhein, Switzer-
land, the German seaplane DO',
biggest flying boat in the world,
settled down on the Pontengy river
here today, completing her long-
delayed trans-Atlantic flight.
It was last Nov. 5, when she lift-
ed herself off Lake Geneva, in-
tending to fly to New York. B'efore
that month was over the series of
misadventures which dogged her
voyage had begun.
She got to Amsterdam and then
to London without mishap, but be-
tween London and Bordeaux,
France, a fog slowed her down and
she had to alight on the water short
of her objective.
Proved Seaworthy Quality.
It was then that she proved for
the first time her quality as a sea-
going vessel. It was too dark for
flying so she taxied 50 miles or
more up to Bordeaux.
Then she went on to Lisbon and
as she lay in the harbor there a
fire, the origin of which still is un-
explained, destroyed one of her
wings. She was laid up for two
Last January she go as far as the
Canary Islands. By this time she
had abandoned hope of flying to
New York and changed her objec-
tive to South America. Time after
time she tried to get away from Las
Palmas, but heavy seas and high
winds prevented the take.off.'
In Africa May 1.;
She took to the water again and
taxied to Cando bay, about 5 miles1
from Las Palmas, but it was not
until May 1 of this year that she
finally crossed to Africa, coming3
down at Villa Cisneros, Rio de Oro
Three days later she flew down to
Bolama, Portuguese West Africa
and on May 30 she got to Porto
Praia in the Cape Verde Islands.
Yesterday she took aboard a
heavy load of fuel and with the
first favorable weather in weeks,
pulled herself off the waterhnd
headed for Brazi. It took 12 hours
and 26 minutes to cover the 1,429
miles between Porto Praia and Fr-
nandlo do Noronha Island.

High School Teacher
Drowns Near Pontiac
P O N T I A C, June 5.-(P)-The
body of Daniel W. Hickok, former
teacher in Western high school,
Detroit, was recovered from Union
Lake this morning. He was drown-

Pope Ridicules Fascist 'Respect'
for Church; Asks Proof
of State Charges.
ROME, June 5.-(P)-New efforts
to reach a solution of the present
controversy b e t w e e n the Italian
government and the Vatican were
fruitless today, despite what was
interpreted as a compromise offer
by Premier Mussolini which failed
to satisfy Pope Pius.
It was stated in responsible quar-
ters that the Pope refused to con-
sider the Duce's offer to permit re-
opening of Catholic clubs for wo-
men and girls, replying in effect
that all or none of the Catholic
clubs recently dissolved must be
restored to good standing.
Premier Mussolini's offer was re-
garded as the first definite result
of secret conversations which Mar-
chese Pacelli, Papal emissary, has
had with Mussolini.
Pope Writes Editorial.
Pope Pius himself was understood
to have written a brief editorial in
Osservatore R o m a n o which de-
mands that the Fascists present
proofs, if they have them, that the
Catholic clubs were political. The
editorial speaks with scorn of the
Fascist party's "respect" for the
church and the Pope.
In Vaticanacirclesthe pontiff is I
represented as holding that Mus-
solini must enforce the Lateran
treaty declaring that the "person
of the supreme pontiff is sacred
and inviolable," and that public
offenses committed on Italian ter-
ritory against the person of the
pontiff by speeches and acts are
punishable in the same manner as
aa inst the king of .Italy The Va-
tican already has demanded re-
paration and the arrest and pun-
ishment of those guilty of excesses
against the church and is await-
ing a reply from the government.
Horton of Tennessee Impeached,
Disposes of One of Seven
Indictment Articles.
NASHVILLE, June 5.-(9)-The
first article of impeachment ever
presented against a governor of
Tennessee was quashed today as
the house of representatives reject-
ed a charge that Governor Henry
H. Horton conspired to turn over
control of the state government to
private individuals in exchange for
their political support.
Consideration of seven additional
impeachment articles was deferred
until next week.
After three days of debate, the
rollcall on adoption of the conspir-
acy article started shortly after the
noon hour. The tenseness was brok-
en by cheers and applause from the
crowded galleries when the result
of the rollcall was announced by
Speaker Walter M. Haynes. The vote
was 41 for trial and 58 against.
Friends of the governor then
moved to kill all allegations in the
article for all time by asking its
formal rejection, thus removing any
possibility of reconsideration. This
motion prevailed 52 to 47.
Governor Horton was accused in
the first article of conspiring to let
Colonel Luke Lea, publisher, and
Rogers Caldwell, financier, domi-
nate certain departments of the
state government for their financial
gain so that he might receive their
support in his political campaigns.
Federal Men Break up

President Alexander G. Ruthven to
give a summary of recent Univer-
sity progress, as well as outline
some of the possibilities for con-
structive co-operation he hopes to
receive from this body.
The afternoon session of the
council will be devoted to discus-
sion on the part of individual mem-
bers of the council of some of the
points the President raises, and the
possible appointment of such com-
mittees as arc necessary to deal
with the specific problems pre-
sented by the University's adminis-
trative authorities. From this dis-
cussion, it is hoped that further
constructive work may be affected.
It is hoped that this meeting will

dent, the Board of Regents, and
