President Asks
People's Aid In
Anti-Crime War
WASHINGTON, May 19. - (A)
President Roosevelt called on Ameri-
can citizens to marshal support to-
day for the Federal Government's
war on crime.
While the Department of Justice
girded itself with new weapons to
wield against criminals, the Presi-
dent said:
"I ask citizens, individually and as
organized groups, to recognize the
facts and meet them with courage
and determination."
Public intolerance of the evil-doer.
the President asserted, is needed to
bolster the nation's drive on inter-
state crime.
In signing six bills Friday to
strengthen the forces of the Depart-
ment of Justice, President Roosevel
signalized the action as "an event of
the first importance."

no relenting.
"But there is one thing more. Law
enforcing and gangster extermination
cannot be made completely -effective
so long as a substantial part of the
public looks with tolerance upon
known criminals, permits public of-
ficers to be corrupted or intimidated
by them, or applauds efforts to ro-
manticize crime."
Attorney General Cummings said:
"Kidnapers, killers, and racketeer
are a serious menace."
Conversations between justice de-
partment officials and Lewis H. Doug-
las, director of the budget, about the
money needed to tighten the grip
of the law were scheduled for the
next few days.
Attorney General Cummings was
said to believe about $3,000,000 i
needed to get men and equipment
for the extended war on the under-
Death for kidnapers who violate the
Lindbergh law is provided under the
new laws. The measure also makes
it a federal offense to flee across a
state line to avoid prosecution or tes-
tifying; to send ransom demands or
threats across a state line; to kill or
assault a federal officer; to smuggle
contraband into a federal prison or
incite a riot in such an institution;
and to rob a national bank.

Professor Anderson said. "I have

I know that he lends a sympathetic
ear to ideas propounded by students.
It is to be regretted that students do
not take a greater advantage of the

Professor Anderson also said that
