After Freedom
Of Five Years
Brookie Dawson Leaves
Wife, Child To Return
To Jackson Prison
DETROIT, May 12.-(P)-Brookie
Dawson, 27 years old was returned to
Jackson State prison, today five years
after he escaped by driving a car
away from the institution in an ef-
fort to visit a dying sister in Detroit.
In his five years of freedom Daw-
son built up a successful machinist's
business in Peekskill, N. Y., married
an attractive blond wife, and became
the father of a son.
Sentenced in 1924 at the age of
18, for 5 to 10 years for driving an
auto away, Dawson was a model pris-
oner for four years. He was made a
trusty, and worked outside the prison
walls. After his escape he returned
to his sister's home in Detroit, but
the police were on the watch for him
and he did not see her.
In New York the shadow of his
escape hung over him, and more than
a year ago his fears led him to give
up his business and take his family
away. They traveled from city to
city, their savings dwindling while
Dawson searched in vain for work.
Two weeks ago they returned to
a sister's home in River Rouge, and
Thursday the police arrested Daw-
son. The wife and ten-months-old
son are left penniless while the
father, a successful business man
when he met his wife, returns to

S3.2Beer Is Violation Of
The Constitution
GREELEY, Colo., May 12.-P')-
Sweeping aside the opinions of some
of the ablest constitutional lawyers
in Congress, who aided in drafting
the 3.2 per cent beer bill, District
Judge Claude C. Coffin has declared
its passage in violation of the con-
In his decision which denied the
Greeley Elks club and Fred N. Fetch,
cafe owner, a writ of mandamus
which they sought to compel the
Greeleycity council to issue beer per-
mits, Judge Coffin said the Con-
gressional declaration that 3.2 beer is
non-intoxicating is contrary to the
"general known physical facts."
Fetch said he may appeal the de-
cision immediately to the state su-
preme court and possibly to the fed-
eral courts.
"Congress, by legislative action,
might state that gasoline is non-
inflammable but that does not keep
it from burning," the judge said.
"I think that not only the state
.beer law but the act of Congress le-
galizing 3.2 beer is an attempted eva-
sion of the Eighteenth Amendment
and hence unconstitutional and in-

asked for by these petitioners are

Report Shows Few
Jobless In Library
Science Graduates
"Out of the 297 individuals who
have received degrees in library sci-
ence from the University of Michi-
gan but 27 are actually unemployed
at the present time," it is recorded
in statistics recently published by
William W. Bishop, head of the li-
brary science department.
This is less than ten per cent un-
employed, and most of these are from
the last two classes, the report shows.
The first degrees in library science
were given in 1927.
Mr. Bishop writes that the greater
part of the graduates have gone into
university and college work, while 74
have taken up public library posi-
tions, 29 school library work, and
seven are engaged in children's li-
brary work. There are also five em-
ployed in instruction in librarian-
ship. The Department of Library
Science has enrolled at the present
time 58 students, and it is pointed
out that the number taking the sec-
ond degree has increased consider-
ably in the last two years.
Radio Broadcasting
Tried By Students
Students in Prof. G. E. Densmore's
advanced speech course have been
combining business with pleasure for
the past week.
As a part of the regular class work,
instruction in radio broadcasting is
included. To make the study more
interesting Professor Densmore has
installed an imitation radio set, dif-
fering from a real outfit only in that
wires are used to convey the sound
instead of the ether. The studens
are required to originate their own
programs and plan a continuity
which has to fit a limited time sched-
ule. While one group of the class is
broadcasting its programs other
members of the class are in another
room listening to it.
"It is great fun," stated Professor
Densmore, "and I believe the stu-
dent was able to grasp the intrica-
cies of microphone technique far
better by actually talking through
a microphone and later have the
I class criticize his voice, than if he
had to study the same material from
a .textbook."

Rep. McFadden's
Of Tax Evasion
Basis Of Action

WASHINGTON, May 12.-G)--An
investigation of the income tax re-
turns of Andrew W. Mellon, the
wealthy former secretary of the
treasury and ambassador to Great
Britain, has been started by the jus-
tice department.
Charges made on the floor of the
House by Representative McFadden
(Rep., Pa.) form the basis of the
action. McFadden asserted that Mel-
lon while in President Hoover's cab-
inet had been guilty of "a specific
tax evasion" on -approximately $6,-
In addition to the McFadden
charges, Attorney General Cummings
said, a number of letters had been
received from private citizens asking
for such an investigation.
Cummings indicated he would
handle the case through a special in-
"It is fair to say that the policy
of the department is to investigate
all cases where the complaint indi-
cates that there is some substance
to the allegations," the attorney gen-
eral said. This is a serious charge
and has to be treated seriously and I
hope fairly."
McFadden last week read a letter
to the house from David A. Olson,
former investigator for the senate
stock market committee, asserting
that in 1931 Mellon sold stock in the
Western Public Service Co. and the
Pittsburgh Coal Co. showing a loss
of $6,700,000, "which loss was de-
ducted for income tax purposes."
Olson's letter said the Pittsburgh
Coal Co., stock was repurchased by
the Coalesed Co., "which company is
owned 100 per cent by Mr. Mellon
and his family."
