More Bad Checks

The number of checks passed and
the wide variety of signatures used
'indicate that Gardinier is one of
the best student forgers Ann Arbor
has seen in years, according to De-1
tective Clifford West of the local
police. Most of the checks are in
amounts of from one to five or six
dollars, a few running up to 15 and
20, and the majority of them are
drawn in favor, if it can be called
such, of bookstores and campus
business firms catering largely to
student trade.

'Sage of Happy Valley' Lost to
Brother in 'War of Roses'
Back in '86.
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn., Nov. 25.
-(P)-Former:Gov. Alfred A. Tay-
lor, the 83-year-old "sage of Happy
Valley," whose colorful career in
Tennessee politics brought him na-
tional prominence, died early to-
day at Appalachian Hospital here.
It was he who participated in thek
famous "War of the Roses," a cam-
paign for the governorship that he
and his brother Bob waged side by
side against each other.
He had been in ill health since
1929, but only recently his condi-
tion became critical. He lapsed in-
to a coma Monday. The veteran
political leader's two sons, Frank
and Blaine, were at his bedside
when the end came at 5:45 a.. m.
Complications arising from ure-
mic poisoning caused his death.
Roses, red and white, played an
important part in t h'e life of
"Uncle Alf," who lost the "War of
the Roses" in 1886 and "lived in a,
house by the side of the road"' in
Happy Valley, so he could "be a
friend to man" and hunt foxes.
That."war" still is fought at the
firesides in the Tennessee moun-
Alf was nominated for governor
by the Republicans and his brother,
"Fiddling Bob" (Robert Love Tay-
lor), was nominated by the Demo-
crats.g The two campaigned in the1

sleeping together by night.

Small Boys of Ann

Fortunately, Detective West said,
the racket was more easily stopped

legitimate channels.-

Speaker Compares Cosmic Paradox
With That of Electron Movement

The present view of the universe
seems to be as contradictory to
common sense as that of the para-
doxical motion of electrons accord-
ing toDr. Willem De Sitter, famous
universe-maker and director of the
Observatory at Leyden, Holland. In
a lecture in Natural Science Audi-
torium yesterday afternoon Dr. De
Sitter, originator of the so-called
"De Sitter universe," presented the
lnofi-t theorie raanrina structure

If all matter were distributed even-'
ly, there would be only one atom
in each three cubic feet of space,
and the resulting density would be
over a million million times small-

stated. Some theories state that
the universe began about 5 thou-
sand million years ago and has,
been expanding ever since. This
is a comparatively short time, com-
nared with the no nf the earth.
