Picard Holds
IHis, Stand On
Will Not Reverse 1eiion
Of limnhi i g Places To
Sell Liquor By Glass
LANSING, Feb. 20. -r).-Threats
of reprisal and bitter personal epi-
thets today railed to swerve Chair-
man Frank A. Picard of the state
liquor control commission from his
conviction that the number of places
selling liquor by the glass in Detroit
should be limited to 500.
The chairman refused to give
ground Monday in a stormy session
with seven members of the Wayne
legislative delegation and accused
them of "playing politics." Represen-
tative George A. Schroeder, one of
the leaders of the delegation, said
the Wayne meners will demand a
hearing before the entire commission.
The session Monday brought sharp
verbal clashes between Picard and
Schroeder and Senator Anthony J.
Wilkowski. At one time, Wilkowski
and Picard faced each other at op-
posite ends of the long table in the
hearing room and engaged in bitter
personalities. Schroeder charged Pic-
ard with "pitting your will against
that of the entire legislative mem-
bership from Wayne county."
Schroeder threatened to work
against the administration's legisla-
tive program at the special session
unless the demands of the Wayne
delegation were met. Picard retaliated
by charging the delegation with an
attempt to "play politics."
Schroeder said that Detroit should
have at least 2,000 licensed places.
"If the administration doesn't come
across with this thing, then we're
going to buck the administration in
the legislature. It has asked us to
support a lot of things we don't
want and is unwilling to give us this
one thing."
Turning to Picard and shaking his:
fist, Schroeder said: "Your will is
being pitted against that of the whole
Wayne delegation in the legislature
and we've been writing the law that
says we can have more than 2,000
licensed establishments."
"Writing hell," Picard shot back.
"Half of you don't even know what's
in the law, much less write it."
The delegation asked the chairman
if he would agree to increasing the
number above the 500 mark if the
Detroit common council voted for the
"Off hand," Picard said, "I feel
I would be inclined to go along with
the council up to 1,000 but I aim not
making any promise. My object in
going along with the council and po-
lice department has been that no
excuses could be offered for not en-
forcing the law."
Picard said that he was willing
"to pit my will against the whole
state of Michigan, if necessary, to
keep this thing out of politics." He
contended that the commission is
having a hard time finding 500 places
in Detroit to qualify under the law.
Other members of the Wayne dele-
gation present were Representatives
John B. Murphy, Carl W. Bischoff,
MIrtin W. Baginski, John P. Connors
and Michael J. Grapewski.

'Telly Seniator Black That
He Sought To Establish
Equities In Lines
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20- P)--
In the course of a long verbal fenc-
ing match today, Walter F. Brown,
f o r m e r postmaster-general, t o Id
Chairman Hugo Black of the Senate
Airmail Committee that the purpose
of a gathering of air transport op-
erators in Washington in 1930 was
to determine their "equities" in air-
mail routes.
The basis for determination of
these "equities," or rights, Brown
said, was the pioneering develop-
ment for aviation by the companies.
He denied, however, that the airmail
contracts were awarded on the ba-
sis of the findings and all Black's
thrusts did not change that state-
Black referred to "the plan" which
guided the airmail meeting in May
and June, 1930, and asked if it were
not "so that what you term equities
could be awarded without competi-
tive bidding."
"That's correct," Brown said quiet,
ly. "That's what they wanted to do."
Black rubbed his hands and ob-
served that "the plan could not be
carried out if the various operators
tried to get a line which held equities
belonging to other groups."
"Agreement on equities," Brown
replied, "didn't mean there was any
agreement on a plan for the diver-
sion of contracts."
He added that the air transport
operators had tried to e s t a b l i s h
among themselves who had "pioneer
"I knew they couldn't," he testi-
fied, "and that it would give me an
excuse for chucking the whole plan."
During the day the House Post-
office Committee began hearing on
proposed permanent legislation for
new awards of the canceled airmail
Silvers Sought
In Jake Factor
Kidnap Cas e
Isaac Costner, rfennessee
Gangster, Names Him As
Roger Touhy Aid
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Feb. 20. -The alleged
"fingerman" in the $70,000 John Fac-
tor kidnaping was sought today as a
result of a dramatic "inside" story of
the abduction told by a Tennessee
rifleman who turned big city gang-
Joseph Silvers, part owner of the
Dells roadhouse in Morton Grove, Ill.,
near which Factor was snatched last
July 1, was the man hunted on an
accusation by Isaac Costner, young
Tennessee gangster, that it was Sil-
vers who helped members of the
Roger Touhy gang locate Factor the
morning he was kidnaped.
Prosecutors said Silvers might be
charged with being an accessory to
the abduction. He is somewhere in
Florida, state's attorney's police said
they were informed.
Costner, recently arrested in Bal-
timore with Basil Hugh Banghart,
told his story as a witness Monday

for the state at the second trial of
Roger Touhy, Albert Kator and Gus
Schaefer, thereby violating the tra-
ditional gangland law by talking in a
court of justice.
Talks For Hours
But Costner talked for hours and
when he had finished he had not
only identified Touhy, Kator and
Schaefer as members of the gang
that kidnaped Factor, but frankly
confessed that he had been with
them, accepting later from Banghart
the comparatively nominal sum of'
$2,300 as his share in the snatch. He
named Charles (Ice Wagon) Connors
and Andy McFadden as other mem-
bers of the gang.
"The Touhys," he testified, "had

Use Electricity
In Search For
estern Gold
NEW YORK, Feb. 20.-(/P)-
There's a new placer-gold prospector
in the far west whose big money toolss
are a little wire and a battery.
The new prospecting was described
to the American Institute of Mining
and Metallurgical Engineers today by
J. J. Jakosky and C. H. Wilson of In-
ternational Geophysics, Inc., of Los
Angeles. They said that the new
prices for gold have made it attrac-
tive to large companies to rework
the placer beds.
But they face losses unless theya
can pick the regions where the sands
are deep. To do this the electricalj
prospectors drive a mnetal stake into1
the ground and run a current into it.l
From the stake the electricity flows
into the ground. Some distance away
another stake is driven. It picks up
the current which has passed through
the earth.
The readings of this current indi-
cate how much resistance the elec-
trical flow has met down so hmany
feet in the earth. From this the geo-
physicists can calculate the distance
to bed rock, and so tell how deep the
auriferous sands are likely to be. Re-
cent practical examples were cited in
Pinal county, Arizona, and Trinity
county, California.
Another method, with an electro-
magnet, detects buried "black sand"
concentrations. Black sands are mag-
netic and may be associated with
gold deposits.
several places where they met -one
in Park Ridge, one in Glenview and
other places. I was in bed in one of
the places. About 11 p. m. one of the
boys -- maybe it was Gus Schaefer,
maybe it was Roger Touhy came out
and woke me and Banghart up.

Yes, that they were going to grab

After that the witness said he went
