was now very close to the "pick

gress "to cut the red tape" involv-

Woods praised the "overwhelm-

nation but described the extent of
unemployment as "not speaking
well for industry." He said unem-
ployment had been increasing and
that he believed the lowest level
would be reached this month and

Kaiser's Kin Takes
Position as Waiter
(Br Associa ted Pre ss)
LUXEMBOURG, Jan. 7-Zoub-
koff, the Russian dancer who
married the former Kaiser's late
sister, has taken a fob as a wait-
er, permitting his employer to
advertise, "Here you are attend-
ed by the Kaiser's brother-in-
law." This displeased persons in-
terested in maintaining t h e
Kaiser's dignity and Zoubkoff
received a visit from the Count-
ess von Spaht, accompanied by
his own mother.
The women remonstrated with
him and when he remained ob-
durate they left after giving him
the address of a "nice, quiet
home" where they advised him
to go for a rest.
Zoubkoff looked up the address
and found it to be that of an
insane asylum.

sent out by McBurney last month.
Several weeks were consumed in
preparing the questions ,dealing
with nine viewpoints of adminis-

more than a month was necessary
to compile the answers.
Such subjects as regulations of
fraternity rushing, supervision of
campus liquor problems, smoking

and scholastic requirements for
participation in activities form the
basis of the information. Special

Brucker to Cite Stand
on State Issues in
Message Today.
Differences of Opinion
May be Revealed in
Two Addresses.
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, Jan. 7.-The views
of the governor who is new to
the responsibilities of the office
and those of an executive who
stepped from power only a few
days ago will be laid before the
legislature Thursday. Differences
of opinion relative to state affairs
may be revealed.
For the first time in 10 years
or more exaugural and inaugural
messages will be presented on the
same legislative program. Former
Governor Fred W. Green plans to
come from his home in Ionia to
submit his recommendations. Fol-
lowing him Governor Wilbur B.
Brucker will read the message he
hopes will establish guide posts for
administration friends in the legis-
lature to follow.
Green Supports Tax.
With the organization of both
the senate and house completed
and with the membership duly
sworn in, the attention of the leg-
islators was directed exclusively to-
ward the coming executive utter-
ances. The possibility that there
may be divergence in the ideas of
the old and new executives added
spice to their speculations.
Former Governor Green is an
avowed advocate of a state income
tax to relieve or reduce propyrty
taxation. His successor has m?,de
no definite pronouncement, an it
is believed that in his message he
may do little more than skirt the
Brucker's Speech Prepared.
On these, and many other issues,
the two may go their individual
ways. Green said Wednesday night
he had not yet completed his fare-
well message, but would have it
finished in time for submission.
Governor Brucker has his message
prepared. He indicated it will treat
a host of subjects. That he will re-
iterate his demands for economy in
appropriations, for reduced pay-
rolls where possible and for avoid-
ance of the creation of new de-
partments to add to state expense
there appeared no doubt. Because
of his interest in crime legislation
and crime prevention he may of-
fer recommendations along these
