Police Arrest Local
Chain Store Robbers
Two men, both from D troit and
giving their names as John Jones
and Norries Hoffman, were arrest-
ed early yesterday morning by of-
ulcersrWier and Enhermann of the
city police as they were about to
break into a Kroger grocery store
on Broadway.
Examination of the men at the
police office revealed that they
had committed nine robberies of
Detroit chain stores in the past six
months. Cigarettes appeared to be
the chief object of theft, for they
confessed to having taken 40 car-
tons from a chain store on Oak-
man boulevard, 30 cartons from an-
other on Grand River, and 50 car-
tons from a third on Michigan ave-
nue, as well as change from them

The men were to be turned over
to Detroit authorities for investi-
gation concerning the offenses.

matters, both within and outside
the realm of science, but he never
assumes to speak with authority
and would therefore give the im-
pression that he has no opinions.
This is more than counteracted by
the fact that he is full of human
interest. His eyes fairly twinkle, as
he tells of that admirable quality
of all American boys Who love to
tinker with mechanical contrivan-
ces and discover "what makes

He has the quick step, the kind-
ly smile, and the clean-cut featuresl
of a young man who has yet to faceI

verses with the air of one who
"really doesn't know, but would
like very much to find out." And
yet this "young man" of 65 years
has been recognized by all the
world as having reached the top in
the field of organic chemistry.
Doctor Gomberg has never mar-
ried, and his purely sentimental
liking for young ladies has been the
occasion for much good-natured

friends. He lives with his sister

aspect of his career is probably th
fact that he has accomplished such
wonders in the field of research

His name is on a roster of men
who have contributed to the pro-
gress of chemistry in America dur-
ing the past century that has been
submitted to the National Research
Council for use in planning an his-
torical exhibit at the 1933 Chicag
World's Fair. It is to be expected
that when the plans for the roster
