Says Brooklyn Prelate Is
Showing Disrespect For
The Catholic Church
DETROIT, Nov. 29. - WP) - The
militant Father Charles A. Coughlin,
strong defender of President Roose-
velt's monetary policies, t o d a y
launched a second attack on Alfred
E. Smith for his opposition to those
policies, declaring that Smith "has
written his own obituary notice in
lining up with the philosophy of the
In the face of widespread controv-
ersy following his New York address
Monday night, the Royal Oak, Mich.,
priest, who returned from New York
today, said bluntly that he was "not
hedging at all," and reiterated his
assertion that Smith visited the office
of J. P. Morgan in an attempt to
arrange for a loan for his Empire
State building in New York.
"I did not say that he obtained
the loan, or that he saw Mr. Mor-
gan," said Coughlin. "I simply stand
by the statement as I made it. In no
sense have I borne false witness
against my neighbor."
Reiterating his statement made in
his New York address Monday that
he considers Smith the "outstanding
Catholic layman of this country,"1
Coughlin said, however, that "Alfred
E. Smith is banking-minded - he
cannot wriggle from the rock which
he has cast upon his own head -a
letter which he published insinuating
that President Roosevelt and those
who are supporting him in attempt-
ing to free this Nation from the fi-
nancial slavery which, consciously or
unconsciously, the Smiths, the Bar-
uchs, the Spragues and the War-
burgs are supporting, are crackpots
and so am I."
The priest's statement came at the
close of a day in which he had been
charged with "wild ranting that is a
disgrace to the church" by Monsignor
Belford, Brooklyn prelate, and in
which former Gov. Smith had de-
clared his statements concerning the
Morgan incident "absolutely false."
In a separate statement he at-
tacked Father Belford for saying that
"his (Father Coughlin's) bishop is
worse than he is because the bishop
has it in his power to stop him and
has not done so." The bishop referred
to is the Most Rev. Michael J. Gal-
lagher, of Detroit.
"Father Belford should at least
learn to respect the episcopacy of the
Catholic Church," said the Royal Oak
priest. "He is certainly taking a lot
on his shoulders to term as 'wild
ranting' what has received up to the
present date the imprimateur of a
Catholic bishop.

Sues University After
7 Years, No Diploma
DALLAS, Tex., Nov. 29. - (IP) -
Seven years ago Herman Evans began
his education at Southern Methodist
University and still he has no degree.
Evans last week came to the de-
cision that something was being put
over on him. So he brought suit
against the University for $21,917 for
fees and tuition plus 6 per cent in-
terest, alleging that the university
had damaged his career, that the
faculty had guided his course "for
the sole purpose of collecting from
him such fees and tuition as they
might require him to pay."

State Will Still
Be Dry After
U. S. Goes Wet
LANSING, Nov. 29-VP)-The sale,
possession or transportation of liquor
will continue to be illegal in Michi-
gan until the Legislature has re-
pealed the existing dry law and a
liquor control bill has been signed
by the Governor, Patrick H. O'Brien,
attorney general, warned today.
In an informal opinion the attor-
ney general held repeal of the Eigh-
teenth Amendment, scheduled for
Dec. 5, automatically wipes out the
Federal Volstead act. After that
date it is expected Federal arrests
will cease. Bootleggers and blind pig
operators, however, will be subject to
arrest for violation of the State law,
as will all persons possessing, trans-
porting, or selling liquor.
The State law in its present .form
allows sale of beverages containing
not more than 3.2 per cent of alco-
hol, through licensed channels. The
liquor control bill under considera-
tion in the Legislature would repeal
this measure and would allow beer
and spirits of any alcoholic content
and wine of not more than 16 per
When a State control law will be
enacted and the sale of high content
beverages will become legal no one
was prepared to guess. The control
measure cannot be taken up by the
Senate before Monday night. It
probably will not be finally passed
before Tuesday or Wednesday. Then
it must return to the House for con-
currence in almost certain Senate

Two other men will also be chosen
for the board, but their names were
not disclosed. The acceptance of the
members of the board is expected to
be made definite at a meeting dur-
ing the coming week, at which the
details of the plan will be given out.
In general, the plan provides for
a central buying association which'
will contract to buy in large quanti-
ties certain commodities which all
houses use. Portions of this contract
will be booked straight to the house
when it applies to the association for
produce. The association will not at-
tempt to store any food products.
There is some question as to
whether the association will handle
both perishable and non-perishable
products, Kelley stated yesterday, but
said that the matter will be settled
definitely before the plan finally goes
into operation.
Permission must be secured from
the board of directors of the associa-
tion before any fraternity will be al-
lowed to participate, the plans 'for
the set-up state, and Kelley said yes-
terday that such permission would
not be forthcoming unless the fra-
ternity has made arrangements to
amortize their present indebtedness.
A similar system is now in effect at
Ohio State University.

Inland Sledge Trip
Three members of the University
Greenland Expedition returned to the
United States Tuesday after a year
and a half spent in northern Green-
land gathering meteorological data
for the University and the Pan-
American Airways. Prof. William H.
Hobbs, head of the geology depart-
ment, stated that he had received a
telegram announcing the explorers'
arrival in New -York late Tuesday
from Prof. Ralph Belknap, director
of the expedition. Accompanying Pro-
fessor Belknap were Max Demorest
and Evans Schmeling, both of the ge-
ology department.
Announcing crypticallyhthat they
were "glad to be alive," the explorers
told of scaling the dangerous Cornell
glacier alone because the natives be-
lieved it inhabited by ghosts and hob-
goblins and wouldn't set foot on it.
They reached the center of the gla-
cier without untoward difficulty, Bel-
knap said, but almost lost their way
several times and frequently were
snowblinded on the return trip. Arctic
blizzards, treacherous crevasses, and
100-mile-an-hour gales that swept
away their trail markers were only a
few of the hazards encountered, he

part of their physical examination.
In the University, all freshman wo-
men receive an examination for tu-
berculosis. Evidence indicates that"
women of college age are more sus-
ceptible to the disease than men, the
association says.
Among persons of college age, ac-
cording to the association's state-
ment, there were last year more than
five deaths from tuberculosis per
week, or nearly one a day. The death
rate in Michigan among people of
all ages, the association says,
amounts to six people a. day --or,
one every four hours.
Tuberculin tests and X-ray exami-
nations in the high and grade schools
of the State are conducted by the
association, which finances this work
by the sale of Christmas seals, and
which is' again asking for support in
its work. In the past three years,
the association says, sales of the
Christmas seals have made possible
the examination of about 100,000
persons. Many tuberculous cases
have been segregated and material
progress has been made in the pre-
vention of widespread infection, the
association reports.

WARM SPRINGS, Ga., Nov. 29 -
VP) -President Roosevelt today set
up the Federal machine for control
of liquor after repeal of national
Prohibition next week and named
Joseph H. Choate, Jr., of New York,
to direct the task.
Choate, with an advisory board
of four government experts, will ad-
minister the newly-signed liquor code
seeking a control of production and
protection of dry states.
The President expects the liquor
industry to take the Initiative with
the Federal government exercising
principally veto and supervisory pow-
His liquor control plan was de-
scribed as having a three-fold ob-
1. Full authority for the states to
name their own methods of sale.
2. Assurance of good liquor at rea-
sonable prices without folding the
market, and elimination of bootleg-
ging, and,
3. Protection of dry states.
Meanwhile, Mr. Roosevelt is giving
consideration to new relations be-
tween the Federal and the State gov-
ernments on tax collections.

'Difficult To Name My Favorite
Composer,' Goossens Decides

Picking his favorite composer is
no easy matter for Eugene Goossens,
conductor of the Cincinnati Sym-
phony Orchestra.
He continued, "I suppose one has
one's favorite composer. I do not
want to say that Mozart is mine,
but I will say that I enjoy conducting
his works as much as I enjoy con-
ducting -anything." Mr. Goossens
stated that whenever he conducts a
particular work, at the time he feels
it is the greatest work ever written.
"I have always been a strong
champion of opera," he said. "Both

Mr. Goossens described his first
professional engagement. "I w a s

Garden to substitute for a second

ful experience with one of the great-
est of Wagnerian interpreters." He
was 16 years old at that time.
When asked as to the practicabil-
ity of operas sung in English, he re-
plied, "Opera in English is quite feas-
ible, but its success depends entirely
on the translation. It must not only
be good English, but carefully ad-
