Mortgage Act
Is Unaffected
Similar Law Already Has
Been Held Constitutional
By Supreme Court
LANSING, May 28.-( P)- An in-
formal opinion from the attorney
general's office held today that the
United States supreme court decision
upsetting the Frazier-Lemke act did
not affect Michigan's mortgage mora-
torium law.
The Michigan law permits mort-
gagees to institute court proceedings
to prevent foreclosures. Mortgagees-
then pay a nominal sum, fixed by the
court, annually. The payments are
used to defray upkeep, taxes on the
property and payments on the princi-
pal. The present legislature extended
the provisions of the act from March
1, 1935, to March 1, 1937.
Assistant Attorney General Arthur
E. Kidder said today that a material
difference existed between the federal
act and the Michigan law.
The federal act, besides permitting
the annual payment under court jur-
isdiction, permits the mortgagee to
redeem his property at the expiration
of the moratorium by paying a sum
set by appraisal, regardless of the
amount of the mortgage," Kidder ex-
"The Michigan act makes no such
"The Minnesota mortgage mora-
torium law, after which Michigan's is
modeled, was held constitutonal by
the United States supreme court Jan.
8, 1934. That decision was quoted by
our state supreme court when it held
the Michigan act constitutional Jan.

The Michigan high court gave its
opinion in the case of Russell vs. the
Battle Creek Lumber Co. It held that
the Michigan statute was not in viola-

dered Kidder to prepare a formal
opinion on the question. He said that
it would require a week of research.

it is more pleasant to work in Eng-

They are a traditionally easy-going

Confidence arew
Rears Ugly Head
At Local Expense
Ann Arbor's stalwart minions of the
law yesterday failed to find or foil two
bandits who have been operating one
of the world's oldest confidence games
in the city.
Not quite as famous as the "gold
brick," this particular variation con-
sists in dropping an envelope which
they allege to contain $100 before
some innocent bystander, and then
selling it to him or her for some
smaller but still respectable sum.
Miss Kitty Phillips, 502 N. Fifth St.
was the victim, and she reported to
police that she had paid $29 for an
envelope holding, not the $100 she
had expected, but a pack of newspaper
clippings. It is reliably reported that
the police department suspects foul

Graf Zeppelin
Continues On
Way Unharmed
Forced Landing Report Is
Unfounded, Officer Of
Airship Declares
SEVILLE, May 28.-UP)-The Graf
Zeppelin, staid mistress of the air-
ways, soared serenely on her way to
Friedrichshafen today despite reports
that a crippled engine had forced her
down on the Moroccan coast.
Airport officials here said the giant
aircraft had been sighted late last
night flying over Gibralter on her
usual course to Germany. Earlier,
they said, the Graf landed briefly at
Larache, Morocco, to discharge mail.
A wireless message picked up at the
Snai station when the dirigible was
off Larache gave rise to reports that
she was in difficulty as a result of
motor trouble. The message was said
to have requested the Seville airport
to prepare for a landing and to have
asked the quantity of gasoline on
hand. The airport, however, said it
had received no such communication.
Reuters (British) News agency dis-
patches from Berlin said the Graf
Zeppelin wirelessed she was over the
Gulf of Lyons and was making for the
mouth of the Rhone river.
