Detectives tonight said 'they had
definite proof that Merton W.
Goodrich, trap drummer who is
wanted for questioning in con-
nection with the slaying in De-
troit of 11-year-old Lillian Galla-
her, was in this city last nigh't.
DETROIT, Sept. 27-(P) -Grimly,
but without a definite clue they cared
to divulge, police tonight pressed a
widening search for Merton W. Good-
rich, former Ohio asylum inmate, on
a warrant charging him with the
brutal slaying of Lillian Gallaher.
Warrant Out Today
The warrant was issued today. It
accused the 26-year-old trap drum-
mer of strangling and beating to
death the unsuccessful little sales girl
whose futile efforts to sell chances on
a punch board brought her to the
door of the Goodrich apartment last
Thursday aftdrnoon with only one
sale' to show fbr five hours of pitiful
Yesterday, the day Lillian was to
have celebrated her eleventh birthday
with a party at her home, her body
was found in a trunk in the Goodrich
apartment. She had been criminally
assaulted before.she died.
Many Clues Pursued
Since then, Goodrich and his 25-
year-old, red-haired wife who walked
"with a limp, have' been sought and
reported seen in scores of places-
throughout the middle west.
Michigan officers pursued clues in
Ohio and Illinois, but the prinicpal
search centered in Detroit, where ac-
quaintances told police, they, were
seen as recently as Tuesday. A num-
ber of apartment building managers
told of calls by a couple resembling
the Goodrich's Monday night and
police believe the fugitive and his wife
were seeking a hideout.

Hauptmann And Colonel
Meet As Hunt For Aide
NEW YORK, Sept. 27.-(PR) -
From- Col. Charles A. Lindbergh's
memory of the ransom rendezvous
and the recollections of a feminine
swimming companion of Bruno Rich-
ard Hauptmann, the authorities
strove tonight to trace accomplices
of Hauptmann in the kidnaping and
slaying of the Lindbergh baby.
r'Infreasing signs 'of a police'con-
viction that several persons partici-
pated in the kidnaping were mani-
fest as Col. Lindbergh, his identity
disguised, p e r s o n a 11 y confronted
Hauptmann in the office of Samuel J.
Foley, the Bronx district attorney.
Hoover Indicates Progress
J. Edgar Hoover, of the depart-'
ment of justice, has indicated prog-
ress toward further arrests. Other au-
thorities declined to discuss this phase
of the inquiry.
Earlier, Hauptmann had been held
in $100,000 bail after his attorney had
entered a plea, of not guilty to the
For a short time late in the after-
noon a new clew appeared in a re-
port by Mrs. Katherin~e Maurer of
the Bronx, that her husband, John
Maurer, had disappeared and that he
had been acquainted with Haupt-
mann. This was discounted somewhat
when Mrs. Maurer returned to her
home saying it was "purely a domestic
matter' and that neither she nor her
husband knew Hauptmann.
Col. Norman Schwarzkopf, superin-
tendent of New Jersey State Police,
remarked that Harry Uhlig and Isa-
dore Fisch had been customers at a
store where the Maurers worked.
The name "John" has bobbed up
again and again in the two-year-old
quest for the baby's kidnapers, for
that was the name by which Dr. John
F: Condon, the intermediary, knew
the man to whom he paid a $50,000
Schwarzkopf said authorities had
"followed out everything" that Dr.
Condon had told them.
'No Greater G1o
The Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
opened its season last night with "No
Greater Glory," presented under the
auspices of the Art Cinema League.
Widely heralded as a controversial
film, it played to a fairly large house,.
and met with practically uniform ap-
proval from members of the audience.
One of the campus anti-war organi-
zations is reported to have proposed
picketing the theatr'e, passing out
handbills condemning the militaristic
viewpoint of the film, but the pickets
failed to materialize, and the effects
produced by the show appeared to
justify this action, according to Jacob
C. Seidel, '35, of the Cinema League.

The picture was rediscovered by Dr.

been previously discovered and photo-
graphed its location could not be
found in recent years.
The mammoth's four stump-like

Sign-Out Sheets Must Be
Turned In Before Noon
There is to be a definite change
this semester in the handling of late
permissions for women,Kathleen Car-
I penter, '35, chairman of the Judiciary
I Council, announced yesterday.
Late permissions areto be granted
as usual by Miss Jeannette Perry, as-
sistant to the Dean of Women. When
the chaperone or house-mother of the
League house, dormitory or sorority
has signed the slip, she will keep it
and give it to the woman in the
house handing in the sign-out slips on
Monday morning. Thus late permis-
sions will return directly to the Coun-
cil, attached to the sign-out sheets.
Miss Carpenter also emphasized
that all sign-out sheets from League
houses and sororities must be handed
in by 12 noon on Mondays. They are
to be placed in the box on the desk
of the Secretary of the League, which
is the middle desk in the Undergrad-
uate office. A typewritten list of all
latenesses, including the names of
the women, minutes late, and date,
is to be delivered with the sign-out
Dormitories will continue to hand
in typed lists of latenesses at the main
desk on the first Monday of every
month, as formerly.
Any major infraction of rules should
be communicated directly to Miss
Carpenter at the Delta Gamma house.

D r. Franz Blumenthal
Here From Berlin On
Dr. Franz Blumenthal, noted Ger-
man physician who arrived in Ann
Arbor recently, has taken up his
duties as research professor under
Dr. Udo Wile, head of the derma-
tology department at the University
Dr. Blumenthal is a prominent der-
matologist with a world-wide reputa-
tion, and has taught for 25 years as
professor at the University of Berlin.
He was brought here by an endow-
ment fund whichhprovides for two-
year professorships. Accordingly he
has brought along his family and has
taken a house on HIill Ave.
An outstanding physician, accord-
ing to members of his profession, Dr.
Blumenthal comes from a family of
famous physicians. His brother Dr.
Ferdinand Blumenthal, is one of the
foremost authorities on cancer re-
search in the world today, while his
father held the title of privy council-
lor, the highest honor that may be
attained by a physician in Germany.
Dr. Blumenthal's plans after he has'
completed his two years under the en-
dowment fund are as yet unan-
nounced. His position at the Univer-
sity of Berlin is still open, but it is
considered possible that he will re-
main here in a teaching capacity.

A blazing meteor burst apparently
within a few hundred yards of an air
liner carrying eight passengers, Pilot
Archie Anderson of the early morn-
ing transcontinental plane reported
on his arrival here today,.
Anderson was at the controls over
Farfield,when he saw the meteor. In-
stinctively, he swerved the plane;
then realized he couldn't expect to
dodge anything coming so fast. At
that moment the meteor exploded.
"I looked around suddenly when
Anderson swerved the ship," said Pilot
Jack O'Brien, "just in time to see the
final flash of the meteor. Boy! It was
close! That fire ball seemed right in

Will Aid Government To
Carry Out Peace Plan
Which Ended Strike
WASHINGTON, Sept. 27-VP)-
The cotton textile industry tonight
pledged its cooperation to the govern-
ment in the various steps required to
carry out the terms of the peace plan
which ended the recent strike..
Speaking through its code author-
ity, it made it clear that the manu-
facturers expect to be consulted be-
fore changes in the code are made.
It was added, however, that the in-
dustry considers unnecessary appoint-
ment of a board to adjudicate labor'
disputes within its field.
With charges of discriminations
against strikers already before the
new board, the mill voters said they
were in accord with President Roose-
velt's request that all be reemployed,
except those engaged "in lawless vio-
lence" during the walkout.
Meanwhile, the new board ,already'
appointed, went quickly to work and
promised immediate action on the
discrimination allegations. These
were placed before it late in the day
by Francis J. Gorman, first vice-
president of the United Textile work-

The President authorized the In-
dustrial Recovery Board to select its
own chairman. He named Clay Wil-
liams as the first member of the board
but left it up to the board to name
the chairman and executive secretary.
At the White House it was stated
