Fusion Party
Assails McKee
At Large Rally
Madison Square Garden Is
Jammed By 50,000 Of
LaGuardia's Adherents
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Nov. 3.-The Fusion
drive to wrest control of New York
City from Tammany Hall flared to
a white heat today on the heels of
a spirited mass meeting in Madison
Square Garden which attracted a
throng estimated at 50,000 persons.
At the same time, Mayor John P.
O'Brien, Tammany's entrant in the
mayoral race, and Joseph V. McKee,
independent, marshalled their forces
for a final thrust, ending with mass
meetings in Manhattan Saturday
night.
McKee adherents hailed an an-
nouncement by Postmaster General
James A. Farley that he would vote
for McKee next Tuesday. Farley's
statement, issued in Washington,
made it clear that he was speaking
as an individual voter and not as
Democratic national chairman, but
McKee supporters considered it the
nearest thing possible to administra-
tion approval. President Roosevelt
previously had declined to take any
part in the campaign.
The, Fusion rally Thursday night
found Madison Square Garden jam-
med with a huge, shouting throng
that cheered repeatedly as Fiorello
H. La Guardia, Samuel Seabury and
other Fusionists demanded the per-
manent destruction of Tammany
Hall. An even larger crowd gathered
outside the garden and at the end
of the rally police had a sizeable job
on their hands breaking up the jam
that resulted.
LaGuardia, Fusion's candidate for
mayor, again assailed bossism, as-
serting the only issue before the city
was: "Does it want a boss or does it
want a Mayor?"
Mayor O'Brien and his group, La-
Guardia said, are "creatures of Tam-
many Hall and rejoice in it."
McKee wound up his Brooklyn
campaign with a speech which he
devoted almost entirely to LaGuardia,
calling him unfit for the mayoralty
and characterizing him as a "dema-
gogue."
Coleridge Letters
Edited By Griggs
The recently published volume
"Unpublished Letters of Samuel Tay-
lor Coleridge" were edited by Prof.
Earl L. Griggs of the English depart-
ment.
This collection includes some 400
letters, nearly all of which are pub-
lished for the first time. Some of
the recipients of these were such not-
able literary personages as Thomas
DeQuincey, Lord Byron, Dr. Samuel
Butler, Robert Southey, William
Wordsworth, and William Godwin.
The work has been met with much
favorable criticism. Of it the New
York Times says:
"In these letters poets and others
live again; and one of England's
most notable literary periods is again
brought to life."
The London Times says:
"A contribution of first impor-
tance! In his letters we see the real,
the great Coleridge....A vital work
in scholarship."
E. M. Forster in the Spectator
(London) says:
"What a thrilling collection! How
well they have been edited! They
illustrate every aspect of Coleridge's
long life. . . . and constantly give us

new light.''

Comptroller McCarl May Make NRA Decision

Administration
Discusses Plan
To Aid Farmer
Midwest Governors To Fix
Tentative D r a f t With
Secretary Wallace
By Roy F. Hendrickson
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
W A S H I N G T O N, Nov. 3-The
Roosevelt administration, spurred by
reports of growing unrest among the
mid-west farmers, today drafted a
new plan to get higher prices for
farmers.
Limited price-fixing is under con-
sideration, it was disclosed, but de-
tails of the plan were closely guarded
as five midwestern governors and
Secretary Wallace tried to get it in,
final form for presentation to Presi-
dent Roosevelt.
The governors- Herring of Iowa,
Olson of Minnesota, Schmedeman of
Wisconsin, Berry of South Dakota
and Langler of North Dakota-talked
over the farm problem with the
President Thursday.
Mr. Roosevelt read a message re-
ceived at his office for Schmedeman,
which said that the farm strike had
assumed serious proportions in Wis-
consin. Then the new plan came un-
der discussion.
After two hours with the President
and nearly three more in the cabinet
room with Secretary Wallace and
Farm Administrator George N. Peek,
the governors left, smiling, and the
White House issued this statement:
"A tentative plan was worked out.
Further conferences will be held Fri-
day morning. It is hoped a final
plan then will be agreed upon. This
plan when completed will be pre-
sented to the President for his 6,p-
proval."'
The plan, it became clear, is in-
tended to supplement the farm ad-
justment program, centering about
production control for basic farm
commodities.
The governors presented their plan
drawn up earlier this -week at a
conference in Des Moines where they
interviewed representatives of 15
farm organization and listened to
their suggestions. This program calls
for fixing prices at farm production,
costs plus a "reasonable profit"' to
producers; quick inflation including
issuance of government currency to
refinance government indebtedness,
and the. licensing of farmers, pro-
cessors and distributors to make the
fixed prices "effective."

Athletic Union To Oust
Track Metric System
NEW YORK, Nov. 3- (R) The
Metropolitan and New England as-
sociations of the A. A. U. will press
for repeal of the metric system when
the A. A. U.'s annual meeting is held
in Pittsburgh Nov. 19-20-21.
The metric system, adopted at- the
last annual meeting in order to bring
the United States into line wtih most
other nations, failed to meet with
general approval. The report of the
legislation committee, announced
yesterday, revealed that both the
Metropolitan and New England as-
sociations, are strongly opposed to it.
Some delegates to the meeting, no-
tably Robert Kiphuth, Yale swim-
ming coach, will come to the metric
system's defense. Kiphuth has sug-
gested that it be extended to swim-
ming events as well as track and
field. Others ,favorable to the sys-
tem as a whole, probably will sug-
gest that the 1,500 meter run be
lengthened to 1,600 to conform more
closelyewith the yardage classic of
one mile.
Government Will
Buy State Lands
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3-V'P)-The
federal government proposes to pur-
chase 95,683 acres of state and priv-
ately-owned land in Michigan to be
added to its holdings in national for-
ests and purchase units.'
The Michigan land, a part of the
total new purchase of 954,632 acres'
in twenty states east of the great
plains approved by the national for-
est reservation commission is divided
among the national forests as fol-
lows:
Huron 12,680 acres; Manistee 68,-
480; Hiawatha 1,151 and Ottawa 13,-
412.
The total cost for the Michigan
lands is to be $133,623, the largest
part of which will go for the Manis-
tee unit, representing an expenditure
of $85,577. For Huron the cost is to
be $29,440; Hiawatha $1,842, and Ot-
tawa $16,764.

Grosse Pointe
Accountant Is
Held By Police
DETROIT, Nov. 3 - (JP) - Robert
P. Davidson, 37, of Grosse Pointe
Park, a certified public accountant, is
being questioned by police who said
he had admitted destroying City
scrip.
Davidson's arrest, according to
Lieut. John A. Hoffman of the spe-
cial investigating squad, is linked
with that of three men in Battle
Creek and two in Flint on Oct. 25
as they were attempting to post
bonds authorities said had been sto-
len as collateral for loans. Davidson
is held on suspicion of having re-
ceived spurious scrip and stolen
bonds, Hoffman said.
"The investigation is only started,
Lieut. Hoffman said. "Before we
have finished we expect to uncover
a nation-wide ring of more or less
respectable men who have been deal-
ing almost exclusively in stolen bonds
and bank securities."
Davidson was quoted by police as
admitting that he burned the scrip
which had been left with him for
safe 'keeping after reading of the
arrest of the two men who he said
asked him to place it in his safe. He
told police that he was not aware
that the scrip was bogus until that
time.
Detectives working under Lieut.
Hoffman several days ago arrested
Adolph Spiro, James Wallace and
Maurice Meyers in Battle Creek as
they attempted to secure a loan at
a bank after postingdas collateral
$20,000 worth of bonds thought to
have been stolen. On the same day
Robert Johnson and William Don-
ald were arrested in Flint when they
attempted a similar transaction with
$30,000 worth of bonds.

CHICAGO, Nov. 3 - () - A the-
ory that a bomb left aboard a New
York to Chicago transport plane ex-
ploded and caused it to crash with
the deaths of its seven occupants
near Chesterton, Ind., was advanced
today by the Tribune when it said
it had learned federal men were seek-
ing a gangster.
While department or 3ustice agents
refused to comment, the Tribune said
it had learned from an authoritative
source that the man sought, whose
name was not given, would be
charged with murder if caught, for
having left the explosive aboard
while a passenger on a previous trip.
Officials of the United Air Lines,
operators of the giant twin-motor
ship that dropped out of the skies the
night of Oct. 10 while farmers were
watching it, said they were not at
liberty to comment. They said their
part in the investigation was merely
to supply information.
However, witnesses at the coro-
ner's inquest the day after the crash
were generally agreed that an explo-
sion preceded the crash of the plane,
but no one was prepared to say what
had caused it.
Flames immediately enveloped the
wreckage, which was distributed over
a wide area of the country-side and
made the task of determining the
cause of the ship's crackup difficult,
but laboratory tests at Northwesternj
Adelphi And Alpha Nu
To Hear Debating Team
Adelphi House of Representatives
and Alpha Nu, campus speech or-
ganizations will hold a combined
meeting at 7:30 p. m. Tuesday in
order to hear an affirmative and neg-
ative team from the varsity debating
squad in an informal debate.
The teams will debate on the con-
ference question "Resolved That a
Constitutional Amendment Making
Permanent the Powers of the Presi-
dent as of July 1933, should be
adopted."

University tended to indicate that it
was not due to an explosion of the
gasoline tanks.
The Tribune today said that de-
partment of justice agents were
working on the theory that the
gangster travelling with the bomb,
may have feared that he would be
searched at the end of the journey
and have hidden it under a pile of
blankets in a compartment.
J. Edgar Hoover, head of the bur-
reau of investigation, department of
justice, in Washington, the newspa-
per said, was in charge of the in-
vestigation.
The bomb, it was pointed out,
might have ridden encased in the
blankets several trips before being
jolted sufficiently to set it off.
As a result passenger lists were
being checked carefully and the
movements of those who rode in the
plane before the fatality are being
checked, the newspaper said.

Foreign Machinery Film
A film describing machinery's ser-
vice to mankind, "Machines Are
Working For You," will be presented
at 7:30 p. in., Monday in Natural
Science Auditorium by the student
branch of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers.
The film goes into the history of
the machine from prehistoric times
until now and gives its development,
showing how it has been of help to
human beings. It is being distribu-
ted in this country by a German or-
ganization and it is available to the
campus only through a break in its
schedule of showings. The admission
is free and the public is invited.
A "weariness of popular cynicism
and sophistication in university cir-
cles signals a very definite turn in the
tide of spiritual affairs in American
colleges," according to Bishop Ira D.
Warner of the United Brethren
Church.
