WASHINGTON, Jan. 26.--(P)-De-
partment of Justice agents today
pushed investigations from two dif-
ferent angles into the interests of
Andrew W. Mellon, for 11 years sec-
retary of the treasury.
Attorney General Cummings indi-
cated to newsmen he was taking a
direct interest in both inquiries, say-
ing late Thursday he had "ordered a
re-check" .by new investigators of
what he termed a "100 per cent
nonopoly" by the Aluminum Co. of
America, controlled by the Mellon
Cummings said also he expected to
know within a week what the gov-
ernment would do in an inquiry
nearing completion into Andrew Mel-
lon's income tax affairs.
Meanwhile the justice department
head said he would examine the NRA
aluminum code. Final phrasing of
the agreement was still in the offing
at NRA early today due to dissatis-
faction by some aluminum importing
The code, previously delayed by
charges from independent firms that
it acknowledged a Mellon monopoly,
now holds a clause that there shall
be no discrimination between frabri-
cators and that independents shall
not be oppressed in any way.

Revelations that inmates of Welfare Island penitentiary in New York were dominated by two gangster
convicts were made by Austin H. MacCormick, Mayor La Guardia's "specialist" appointee as commissioner
of corrections, who termed the place the "worst prison in the world." Warden Joseph A. McCann was
ousted as a result of the commissioner's "coup". Here is a typical cell scene in the penitentiary.

The remarkable response of the
public to the opportunity for adult
education offered through the facili-
ties of the FERA is the subject of
an editorial in the January issuo of
the Michigan School of Education
bulletin which appeared for circula-
tion yesterday. "Self Discipline and
Natural Growth" a treatise on the re-
sults of experimentation in child
psychology is the subject of an
article by Prof. Marguerite Wilker,
director of the University Nursery
In discussing the response to the
FERA opportunity P r o f. Clifford
Woody of the School of Education
writes that "unofficial reports from
the various centers in which such
education is provided show a good
enrollment in the great variety of
courses. The receptive attitude of
the public is surely another testi-
mony of America's passion for edu-
cation." In discussing, the clases
most popular Professor Woody writes
"It is singularly significant after the
hue and cry about 'fads and frills'
in education that when the adults
started trooping to school with a
free choice as to what they might
study, they elected these very same
'fads and frills',"
Professor Wilker's article deals

with discipline and its place in the
present day school and classroom
and its effect upon life. Types of
discipline such as social discipline,
routine discipline, and various kinds
of learning are discussed. In speak-
ing of her subject Professor Wilker
said "Discipline in the present day
school is synonomous with education.
