Wallace Gives
Federal Award
To Ford Dealer
Gen. Johnson Concurs In
Contract After McCarl
Rules In Its Favor
Henry Ford may not be flying the
Blue Eagle, but he is so nearly com-
plying with the automobile code that
one of his dealers today has a new
contract to furnish possibly 700
trucks for the CCC.
There may, however, be subsequent
study of whether the bid which won
the contract for the Bethesda, Md.,
Ford dealer was under the minimum
price fixed by the code.
Agreement to award the contract
was announced by Secretary Wallace,
who said the decision had been con-
curred in by Hugh S. Johnson, NRA
For weeks the automobile pur-
chases had been held up while of-
ficials decided whether the govern-
ment could buy from Ford since he
had not signed the code.
Comptroller General J. R. McCarl
held that even though Ford had not
signed, his dealers' bids were accept-
able if it were complying with code
Even Johnson said Ford was com-
plying. But subsequently Johnson
wondered publicly whether the bid
for the trucks -the government may
take as many as 700 -was under
the code minimum. That was re-
ferred to McCarl, who said that was
a question for "judicial determina-
tion" and not for the purchasing
agent to decide.
Wallace said the decision to accept
the Ford bid was based "on the ad-
vice of the comptroller general as
the best way to secure compliance
with the President's recovery pro-

tions, and worth many thousands of
When the conductor announces his
program, the librarian's first task is
to check this collection for the in-
clusion of the compositions listed. Mr.
Weiss must also check all of the
parts for accuracy, mark all string
bowings, and place all scores on the
desks of musicians.
The conductor, Mr. Eugene Goos-
sens, depends on him to keep the
music inperfect condition. There
must be no markings other than
those notations of the conductor.
When there is a guest conductor,
Mr. Weiss must make all changes in
the notations according to the inter-
pretation of the particular leader.
Sometimes parts get into bad con-
dition and cannot be replaced by
purchase. It is then the librarian's
task to copy all the missing scores
by hand.
Not content to merely play the
part of general librarian, Mr. Weiss
often takes an actual hand in the
performances themselves. He plays
the trumpet whenever necessary, and
assists in the percussion section at
almost every concert.
Lawyers Urged
By Bar Leders
To Clean House
CHICAGO, Dec. 2--P )-The le-
gal profession had before it today
the challenge of the president of the
American Bar association, Earle W.
Evans, Wichita, Kan., that it "clean
house" and drive some of the
"crooks" from its ranks.
Evans spoke Friday night at a ban-
quet of the Illinois State Bar asso-
ciation and the Chicago Bar associa-
tion in honor of the justices of the
supreme court of the state,sand he
was not long at coming to his point.
"It is never the primary object of
the legal profession to make money,
although we have our black sheep
and confidence men," he said.
"We never heed the parasites in
the profession, who regard it as
merely a means of making money
and who consider they are licensed
to commit all sorts of crimes and
misdemeanors on the public. We can
not help it."
He asked for co-operation in driv-
ing out the crooks" and said he was
inclined to agree with the public and
the newspapers in their belief that
the entire profession was responsible
for its "black sheep."

Smith, 1928 Democratic Presiden-

Co-Education Is
100 Years Old;
beganIn Ohio
Oberlin College Was First
in This Country To Give
Privilege To Women 1
OBERLIN, O., Dec. 2.--(/P)- Co-
education will be 100 years old Sun-
The first institution of higher
learning to adopt co-education, Ober-
lin College, founded Dec. 3, 1833, in
the heart of a wilderness, by the Rev,
John J. Shepherd and Philo P. Stew-
art, a former missionary, will observe
its centennial with exercises in Fin-
ney Chapel.
Dr. Ernest Hatch Wilkins, presi-
dent of Oberlin, is scheduled to de-
liver the Founders Day address be-
fore hundreds of alumni and stu-
"The grand objects of Oberlin In-
stitute," the founders said in 1833,
"are to give the most useful educa-
tion at the least expense of health
and money.
"To extend the benefits of such
education to both sexes; to bring
within reach of the misjudged and
neglected sex all the instructive priv-
ileges which hitherto have unreason-
ably distinguished the leading sex
from theirs."
When Oberlin, named in honor of
Jean Frederic Oberlin, an Alsatian
educator from Eastern France, flung
open its doors 100 years ago, approx-
imately one-third of the enrollment
of 45 was represented by the "mis-
judged and neglected sex."
The college's' policy of admitting
women on an equal basis with men
was looked upon with distrust in
press and pulpit and ridiculed by the
public as "heresy." Today, however,
more than 80 per cent of institutions
of higher learning in the United
States are co-educational.I
The leader in co-education, Ober-
lin, situated 35 miles southwest of
Cleveland, also was the first to admit
students regardless of sect, creed or
race; the first to take a definite stand
against slavery; the first to intro-
duce physical education courses in
the curriculum, and among the first
to adopt the "ranking system" of
grading, officials recalled today.

BERLIN, Dec. 2-(P) -For ob-
vious reasons, Chancellor Adolf Hit-
ler presumably will leave one im-
portant article of Germany's new
constitution either open or in terms
capable of wide interpretation. That
is the article defining the head of
the government.
While the 86-year-old President
von Hindenburg lives and is willing
to continue to function, he will con-
tinue to head the nation with the
title of reich's president.
For a while it seemed almost cer-
tain that Germany's venerable field
marshal might retire after the ple-
biscite and reichstag election of Nov.

No other than Hitler, himself, how-
ever, asked von Hindenburg to con-
tinue after Nov. 12. Here's the way
a cabinet member explained this to
the Associated Press:
"Hitler sees in von Hindenburg the
one man who is the living connect-
ing bond between the empire of Wil-
helm I and II, the 'November repub-
lic' of 1918-33 and the third reich
of the Nazis.
"Now that Hindenburg has com-
pletely allied himself with his youth-
ful chancellor, such a venerable sym-
bol of unity, such a bridge between
the past and the present, is some-
thing that any nation can be happy
to have."
There is another reason for insist-
ing that the aged president remain:
von Hindenburg still clings with all
the devotion of a faithful imperial
officer to the house of Hohenzollern.
Obviously, von Hindenburg would
see as the crowning feature of the
whole work of unification undertaken
by Hitler the re-establishment of the
Hitler's mind, as far as can be
learned, is open on the question; but
not so the mind of the three groups
of followers who constitute the back-
bone of his power-namely, the small

WASHINGTON -Whether price-
cutting in connection with chain
stores is unfair competition was the
subject of the Federal Trade Com-
nission's report on its investigation
of the chain store system of retail

farmers, the workers, and the Nazi
Storm Troopers.
The small farmers are against
crowned heads; the workers, while
now all organized in one vast Nazi
labor front, have nevertheless been
thoroughly schooled in Marxian phi-
losophy, and the Storm Troopers can
conceive of no other person at the
head of Germany than The Leader.
Many persons speculate that, once
the venerable president is no longer
at the head of the nation, the chief
executive will be called "reich's lead-
The only chance now given the
monarchy by informed political ob-
servers is that of Nazism failing to
make good economically, in which
case Hitler might conceivably take
refuge in a monarchy.
But the program of economic re-
construction is not being allowed to
lag. It is being pushed with all the
vigor characteristic of the aggressive
Nazi government.
The economic reconstruction pro-
gram, said Werner Daitz, chief of
the foreign trade section of the Nazi
foreign political division writing in
the "Diplomaten-Zeitung," will be
governed by five fundamental prin-
ciples. He wrote:
"The first principle is an ancient
farmers' rule: Taxes must not ex-
ceed a tithe and interest half a tithe,
for otherwise they will become, not
conservators and augmenters of the
substance, but its consumers."
In other words, he said, they will
strive to prevent the consumption of
more liquid assets than are produced.
"The second principle proclaims
social peace within the Nazi state
instead of the class war of the Demo-
cratic state." There will be no
strikes, Daitz declared, and no lock-
outs. "Thirteen trustees of labor"
will decide disputes.
