Smith Asserts
Coughlin Made
False Charges
Catholic Chancellor Says1
Criticism Of Smith 'Was
Absolutely Unwarranted'
NEW YORK, N. Y., Nov. 28. - ()
-Father Charles E. Coughlin's de-
fense of President Roosevelt's mone-
tary policies re-echoed here tonight
in three dominating developments.
1. Alfred E. Smith, whom FatherI
Coughlin described yesterday as "thei
outstanding capitalist layman in
America,' .declared the Detroit priestt
made an "absolutely false" statement
in charging that 'my position on the4
monetary question was in any wayI
affected by any loan from J. P. Mor-l
2. Msgr. Thomas G. Carroll, chan-
cellor of the Catholic Archdiocese ofI
New York said the priest's attack on
former Governor Smith was "abso-
lutely unwarranted."l
3. Before returning to his Shrinea
of The Little Flower, Father Cough-
lin said he had further plans to de-
fend the Administration, but said he1
would not address meetings in any1
diocese if the diocesian authorities
did not approve.1
The former New York governor
-who decried what he termed "ba-
loney dollars" and the "guinea pig"1
experimentation of the Roosevelt ad-
ministration in a recent editorial -
characterized as "absolutely false"
Father Coughlin's story that Smith
gave two. Catholic bishops to under-
stand that he had received a large'
loan for his office building from Mor-
"When a man presumes to address
so great a number of listeners as
Father Coughlin reaches, particularly
if he be a priest, he assumes the re-
sponsibility of not misleading them
by false statements or poisoning their
judgments with baseless slander."
"From boyhood," Smith's state-
ment continued, "I was taught that a
Catholic priest was under a divine
injunction to 'teach all nations' the
word of God. That includes the di-
vine commandment: Thou shalt not
bear false witness against thy neigh-

Rodkey Speaks
On Guarantee'
Of Bank Funds
Proposes An Original Plan
For Safeguarding T h e
Depositors' Savings
The Glass-Steagall deposit insur-
ance act and a plan of his own to
guarantee depositors' funds were-dis-
cussed by Prof. Robert G. Rodkey
of the School of Business Adminis-
tration in the third of a series of four
discussions on currency problems
held in the Lounge of the, Lawyers
Problems arising out of the oppo-
sition of certain ultra-conservative
big banks to constructive legislation.
like the Glass-Steagall act were dis-
cussed by Professor Rodkey, who as-
serted his belief that compulsory de-
posit insurance was a workable mat-
ter and that previous state experi-
ments in this field in the western
part of the country were "too nar-
row in scope."
Under the deposit i n s u r a n c e
scheme proposed by Professor Rod-
key, each depositor would pay a cer-
tain percentage of his account for a
full, rather than a partial, guaran-
tee of his funds. Had this system
been in force through the past 12
years, the speaker maintained, the
bank failures could have been paid
off with 28-100 of one per cent on
deposits made in this period.
The division of the operations of
commercial and savings banks was
advocated by Professor Rodkey, who
added that he thought the present
separation of commercial banking
and securities under the Glass-Stea-
gall Act was highly commendable.
Professor Rodkey said that banks
should invest only 25 per cent of their
funds in real estate mortgages, in-
stead of the present 50 to 75 per cent
used for that purpose.
Competition between state and na-
tional laws for the favors of bankers
was cited by Professor Rodkey as a
reason for the laxity now obtaining in
state laws.

Action On Controversial
Liquor Bill
Legislatures Will
Reconvene Monday
Picard Voices His Plea For
Re-instatement Of Plan
For State Stores
LANSING, Mich,, Nov. 28 -(A) -
The Legislature liquor bill, chief is-
sue of the speci l session, went into
a delayed spin today as all hopes of
its enactment this week vanished in
the Senate.
As members of the Legislature ad-
journed until Monday night for the
Thanksgiving Day recess it became
evident that Tuesday will be the first
opportunity the Senate will have to
vote on the controversial measure.
The delay meant: that Michigan will
be without machinery to celebrate
the repeal victory Dec. 5,
Reversing its previous determina-
tion for hurried consideration of the
bill, the Senate prohibition commit-
tee conducted an all day hearing on
the general subject of liquor con-
trol and adjourned without getting
as far as the opening chapter of the
Members of the, committee, before
adjourning, agreed to return here on
Monday afternoon with their amend-
ment ready for submission. They
predicted the bill will be released
sometime Monday night. It will be
reprinted before it comes before the
floor for a vote.
The entire day was given over to,]
a hearing in which members listened
to Frank A. Picard, chairman of the
Mtate Liquor Control Commission,
representatives of the Michigan
Druggists Association, and John P.
Smith, acting commissioner of police
for DIetroit -- - --
Picard voiced a vigorous plea for
re-instatement of the plan for State
operated stores. Edmund C. Shields,
a member of the State Board of Re-
gents, represented the druggists in
asking for exclusive rights to retail
liquor in original package. Com-
missioner Smith urged that police
departments have original jurisdic-
tion in granting licenses to places
serving liquor, wines, and beer.

1,000 Men Storm Armory
In Effort To Release 4
Imprisoned Lynchers
SALISBURY, Md., Nov. 28. - (A) -
A mob of more than 1,000 men
stormed the State Armory here to-
day in an unsuccessful effort to free
four men accused of participating in
last month's lynching at Princess
Beaten back by tear gas and bay-'
onets, the mob dispersed only after
the National Guards sent by Gov. Al-
bert C. Ritchie to arrest the alleged
slayers of George Armwood, Negro,
abandoned their headquarters in the
armory and returned to Baltimore
with t1 ieir prisoners.
Cried of "Lynch Ritchie" andY
"Lynch Lane" could be heard as the1
crowd hurled stones at the soldiers
surrounding the armory. William
Preston Lane, Jr., is the state attor-;
ney general and it was during hisi
investigation of the lynching last
month that the names of nine al-
leged participants were obtained.
His requests that the state's attor-
ney of Somerset County, John B.
Robins, order the nine men arrested
were refused by the state's attorney,
who contended that a grand jury in-
vestigation was the proper procedure.
Mob Threatens Reporters
Even after the troops, under the
leadership of Lane and Brig. Gen.
Milton A. Reckord, state adjutant
general, had withdrawn from Salis-
bury, the mob continued its activ-
ities and for a time threatened re-
porters in a hotel. A movie sound
truck was captured and sunk in thej
Wicomico River.
The turbulent events came directly
on the heels of a surprise move by
Ritchie and Lane to have the men ac-
cused of the lynching arrested,

He talked to Gen. Reckord by tele-
phone and was informed that the sit-

No Lynching Wanted

Gov. Albert C. Ritchie of Maryland,
who yesterday ordered out the stat
militia in an effort to arrest the al-
leged Princess Anne lynchers. Gov.
Ritchie's action was in striking con-

Jr., of California, who warmly lauded
the "patriotic" action of San Jose cit-
izens who lynched the confessed slay-
ers of Brooke Hart.

Overflow crowds at both houses

That men are better reasoners than
women may be concluded from the
experimental results reported in a re-
cent paper published by the British
Journal of Psychology for Dr. Nor-
man R. F. Maier of the department
of psychology. Dr. Maier also found
that, by warning a portion of his sub-
jects against using habitual methods
of attack on problems involving a
reasoning process, this "experimental
group" was able to arrive at solu-
tions found difficult or impossible by
the unwarned "control group.".
Three hundred and eighty-four
students in an introductory course in
psychology were divided equally into
the two above-mentioned groups. The
experimental group was given a 20-
minute lecture in which the follow-
ing hints on how to reason were pre-

Three problems involving original-
ity were then presented to the two
groups, and Dr. Maier found that the
group which had received the sugges-
tions made a score 24.1 per cent
higher than the control group. The
scores of the women in both groups
was distinctly lower than those of the
The experiment also indicates that,
while women are poorer reasoners,
they seem to be better listeners than
men. This emphatic reversal of pop-
ular male opinion was contained in
the fact that the gain in reasoning
power of those women who heard the
lecture was, judged by a comparison
with the control group, proportion-,
ately higher than the gains of the'
men who were given the benefit of
the suggestions contained in the lec-
