WASHINGTON, Jan. 25 -(P)-The

rising in the public works ;irma-
ment today while the present PWA
chief, Harold L. Ickes, was hitting
back at opponents who are intent
on seeing that his star shall set.
Rear Admiral Christian J. Peoples
was said in an authoritative source
to have been selected for an impor-
tant post in the new agency to handle
the $4,000,000,000 work relief drive.
He was said to be slated to directj
the "projects division" - which
would suggest undertakings to Presi-

other divisions but neither Ickes nor

Lotte Lehmann, at the close of her
first Ann Arbor concert in Hill Audi-
torium last evening, left an audience,
not speechless as does the Boston
Orchestra, nor excited as does Horo-
witz, but quiet, satfisfied, and very
grateful, as only a truly great lieder
singer can.
Her manner was informal, but def-
erential, at the outset almost hesitant.
She did nothing to impress. The re-
sult was a bond of human intimacy
between listener and singer which
made the audience of some 5,000

but possessed of amazing breadth and
richness. She sang cradle songs with
a tenderness which just missed being
sentimental, which is their true na-
ture. Yet she did the Gretchaninoff

love songs revealed a deep and very
feminine understanding. The famil-

LANSING, Jan. 25.-- (P) - The first
step in the retirement of sub-mar-
ginal lands surrounding the village
of Waterloo in northwestern Wash-
tenaw and northeastern Jackson
counties was announced today by the
Departnent of Conservation.
The Waterloo project is part of a
program under which the Federal
government is looking toward the
shrinking out-of competitive produc-
tion of some 50,000,000 acres of sub-
marginal farm lands, as a permanent
remedy for over-production of farm
crops. Under this program those first
affected are farmers on lands too
poor or so.poorly located as to permit
decent living conditions, and where
farms were obviously failing and be-
coming economic and social liabilities.
It is expected that actual develop-
ment work will begin April 1 when it
