THE MICHIGAN DAILY
To End Organized
Rustling Of Cattlel
CHEYENNE, Wyo., Dec. 2.-'1P'
The unwritten law of the range-
summary hanging for cattle rustler
-long since closed to them, and with
losses mounting into large sums.
Wyoming ranchers today are joinin.
in a solid front with the co-operation
of civil authorities to end or lessen
organized cattle rustling.
Not in many years, say the rport:,I
from all sections of the state, haveI
depredations been so severe.
Russell Thorp, secretary of the,
Wyoming Stock Growers' Associa-4
tion, in his report to civil authorities,
said the losses particularly had
mounted within the last 60 days and
that while some of the thefts were
undoubtedly inspired by want, others
were for personal gain.
The Wyoming association, the old-
est of its character in the nation, is
assisting the ranchers and has ex-
tended the campaign against the
rustlers into the far corners of the
Lame Duck Act Is
17 States Approve
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.-W)-TheI
meeting dates of the Electoral Col-
lege and the counting of its votes by
Congress will have to be changed by
law, if 36 states ratify the amend-
ment abolishing the Lame Duck ses-
sions and changing the date of in-
auguration of the President and vice-
The Electoral College under exist-
ing laws meets on the first Wednes-
day in January following the quad-
rennial elections, and Congress polls
the votes in joint session on the sec-1
ond Wednesday in February.
These dates may have to be
changed before the 1934 elections,
because 17statesalready have rati- s
fied the Lame Duck amendment.
More than 40 state legislatures meet
in 1933 and final ratification appears
The amendment fixes the conven-
ing .of the new Congress for Jan. 3,
following the November elections and
the inauguration of the new Presi-
dent and vice-president, Jan. 20. If
the Electoral College law should re-
main unchanged, the newly elected
President would take office before
Congress officially declares him elect-
ed. And that would hardly do.
Sales Tax Lowers
URBANA, Ill., Dec. 2. -(P) - Any
general sales tax would prove a
boomerang to public purchasing pow-
er, in the opinion of Dr. Merlin H.
Hunter of the department of eco-
nomics at University of Illinois.
"Any amount of revenue brought
by sales tax would be subtracted
from the people's purchasing power"
this tax specialist said today. "In
these times people cannot buy goods
from merchants and manufacturers
and at the same time turn their
money over to the government."
It merely illustrates the adage, he
said, that a man can't eat his cake
and have it, too. Viewed in relation
to net income, Dr. Hunter declared,
a sales tax is not an insignificant
tax, as some of its proponents claim.
"Manufacturers and merchants
struggling for existence in a period
of depression and falling prices," lie
said, "would find little comfort in
such a tax."

Eighty-two Chinese students, near-

foreign students, are listed in the new
International Directory of the Uni-

distributed to foreign students at the
office of Joseph A. Bursley, dean of
The directory lists 282 students,
classified under 49 different coun-
tries. Canada is next after China
with 31, the Philippine Islands, India,
Puerto Rico, and Russia follow with
15 to 20 each, and the remainder are
scattered in groups of from one to six
or seven over most of the other civ-
ilized nations of the globe.
The graduate school draws the
greatest number of foreign students,
the directory shows 102 out of the
282 are enrolled in that department.
There are 52 engineering and 12 med-
As might be expected, Germany,
with her many ancient and respected
universities, has contributed but
three students. All European coun-
tries are but thinly represented, Italy
sending but one and Spain, Portugal,
Ireland and Switzerland none at all.

City Sticker Takes
Local Garage Man
For Ride; Cost $10
The city slicker entered Ann Arbor
Wednesday evening, and, function-
ing with all his traditional savoir
faire, managed to get $10 out of two
citizens of Ann Arbor. Here is the
story as it is regrettably written on
the Ann Arbor police blotter:
At 5:30 p. m. Wednesday evening a
man entered the Ford garage on
Huron Street and asked for the fore-
man, Mr. Towsey. The stranger said
his name was Miller, that his car
had broken down on the road outside
of Detroit (and Mr. Towsey never
wondered why he hadn't gone to a
Detroit service station), and that he
wanted a wrecker to go and tow it in.
The stranger told Mr. Towsey that
he was well acquainted with the
people in Northville, which is Mr.
Towsey's home town. He talked long
and reminiscently, and Mr. Towsey,
made a little sentimental by news of
the home town folks, decided that
Mr. Miller was all right, and a wreck-
er should be sent to get his car.
Miller showed a check for $32 from
the General Motors Proving Grounds.
It appeared authentic.
So the wrecker was sent in charge
of Philip Schuler, and Miller and
Schuler rode back along the road to
Detroit. At Plymouth Miller had the
wrecker stopped. He then borrowed
$10 from Schuler, entered a barber
shop, and got himself a shave. Miller
said he would refund the money as
soon as he could get his check cashed.
The wrecker drove on to Detroit.
Again Miller asked Schuler to stop.
This time he entered a shop to get
some cigars. He never came out-
not the front way, at least.

California Governor Says
He Approves Counsel's
Report; Plea Rejected
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 2.--fP)
-Gov. James Rolph, Jr., in a state-
ment today said, in effect, he was
through with the Mooney case.
The statement was made after the
governor returned from San Fran-
cisco, where he had conferred with
his legal counsel, Matt I. Sullivan, a
former justice of the state supreme
court of the plea of Tom Mooney,
convicted San Francisco Prepared-
ness day bomber.
The statement of the governor:
"I have read the letter of Nov. 22
to me by the national Mooney-Bill-
ings committee and also the letter of
the same date to Judge Matt I. Sulli-
van. I also read the reply of Sullivan
to the press.
"I agree with the report of Sullivan
of April 21 and also the answer to the
letter to him by the 15 signers which
was also published in the press.
There is nothing further to do in this
case. In other words it closes the
Mooney case as far as I am con-
Sullivan's report of April 21 recom-
mended Gov. Rolph deny Tom
Mooney's plea for a pardon. Sulli-
van's reply to the letter from 15 men
in the east who had attacked his po-
sition in the Mooney case described
his eastern critics as "parlor bol-
sheviks," accommodating publicity
seekers. intellectual irresponsible and
tricky special pleaders."
'The letter signed by the 15 ac-
cused Sullivan of misleading the gov-
ernor in his investigation of the Pre-
paredness day bomber's conviction.
