Named By Mrs. Stoll As
Confederate Of Husband
And His Father
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 7.-- (R) -
Mrs. Alice Speed Stoll was recalled
to the witness stand in Federal Court
here today to answer defense cross
examination of her testimony that
Thomas H. Robinson, Jr., named his
wife and his father as confederates
in Mrs. Stoll's kidnaping for $50,000
ransom one year ago.
In direct testimony as the govern-
ment's star witness against Thomas
H. Robinson, Sr., and Mrs. Frances
Robinson, Mrs. Stoll related that her
abductor, whom she named as Rob-
inson, Jr., slugged her twice with an
iron pipe so that her head dripped
blood for 24 hours, held her prisoner
for six days, and released her after
Mrs. Robinson delivered the ransom
to an Indianapolis apartment.
Face Death Sentence
Mrs. Robinson, 24-year-old at-
tractive brunette, and the elder Rob-
inson are charged jointly with young
Robinson, a fugitive, in the kidnap-
ing. If convicted, they may be sen-
tenced to death, providing the jury
of middle aged men hearing the case
in Judge Elwood Hamilton's court so
Mrs: Stoll, wealthy young society
matron, said a stranger, "I never saw
him before he came into my room,"
gained entrance to her suburban
home the afternoon of Oct. 10, 1934,
by posing as a telephone repair man,
terrorized her maid, Mrs. Ann Woolet,
and came into her bedroom, where
she was ill.
"He told me he was going to kid-
nap me," Mrs. Stoll testified. "He
held a gun right in my face. I tried
to think of arguments because I knew
it would not do me any good to yell
... The man laid his gun on the bed
and tied my wrists."
"I made a grab for the gun and he
hit me on the head with a pipe. It
raised quite a bumpgu .I remem-
bered that my own gun was in my
bedroom and I tried to get to it and
he hit me again. He cut my head. It
bled for 24 hours."
The 14-inch long pipe, about two
inches thick, bloodstained bed cloth-
ing and negligee went into evidence.
Mrs. Stoll identified a photograph
of Robinson, Jr., as that of her ab-
ductor. She said he threatened to
kill her husband, Berry V. Stoll.

Tuetsday, although there was an
ominous note in a Reuter's report that
Italian airplanes had flown over Dire-
dawa, vital point on the eastern rail-
way, dropping propaganda pamphlets.
The city for days has been in a fever
of fear of an Italian bombing raid.
There were wholly unconfirmed re-

An official communication to the
League of Nations said the Italian
minister had been asked to leave Ad-
dis Ababa immediately, with his en-
tire staff. The Italian legation's radio
station, it was charged, was being
used to create internal disorders.
Developments of a military char-
acter spread over Europe.

An Ethiopian official said Tuesday
that the Italian army on the north-
ern front was suffering wholesale de-
sertions of its native soldiers, accord-
ing to a copyrighted Associated Press
"Information received from the
north shows that Ethiopians serving
in the Italian army are deserting en
masse," the official asserted.
"Fifty armed Eritreans under the
command of an important chief ar-
rived at Makale, south of Aduwa, with
Italian machine guns. In the Agame

Reputation Of Michigan's
Eggs To Be Improved By
LANSING, Oct. 8. -- ()-Eggs will
be sold by the pound instead of by
the dozen in Michigan after Nov. 1,
according to regulations announced
today by Commissioner of Agricul-
ture James F. Thomson. Under the
state law the commissioner has au-
thority to enforce egg grading regu-
Thomson announced four grades of
eggs will be established-fancy, and
grades A, B, and C. An average doz-
en eggs will weigh about 22 ounces.
Large eggs known as "jumbo" size
wil lweigh about 26 ounces a dozen.
Thomson said prices may be estab-
lished on a quality as well as a size
basis. He contended the regulations
will improve the reputation of Michi-
gan eggs, will encourage producers to
take better care of their flocks and
place the authority of the state back
of the dealers to bring about proper
Thomson also announced fees of
$3 a year to be assessed against deal-
ers who buy from producers and sell
to the consumer, $25 a year for those
who buy eggs from producers and sell
to retailers or storage houses, and $25
a year for manufacturers of egg pro-
ducts. He will appoint an advisory
council of seven members to deter-
mine future regulatory policies.
Michigan produced 84,670,000 doz-
en eggs in 1934 at an average price of
23.7 cents a dozen. Thomson said
he believed improved marketing regu-
lations will bring more revenue to egg

SEATTLE, Oct. 8.- (A')- Three
men were held for questioning by p-
lice and two others were sought today
as officers hunted the brutal killer
of seven-year-old Sally Jean Kelley.
One of the men in the city jail was
a Negro janitor from an apartment
house near a garage where the girl's
body was found hanged to a door
handle with a man's handkerchief.
Detective Captain Ernest Yoris,
convinced the girl was killed by a de-
generate after she had been crim-
inally assaulted, ordered officers to
round up for questioning men with
Search for two other men started
when Sheriff Walter Faulkner of Sno-

covered some burned fabric, thrown
into a burning stump by two young
men in a motor car. The fabric is
being tested for blood stains.

With the opening debate of the
season but a month away, men's de-
bating activities will swing into ac-
,ion today when a meeting for try-
outs will be held in 4203 Angell Hall
at 4 p.m.
A large number of prospective
freshman and sophomore debaters
are expected to report, according to
Arthur A. Secord, new debate coach.
The first elimination will be held
next Wednesday and will consist of
a three minute argumentative speech.
Six veterans prom the team that
won the Big Ten championship last
year will be back. They are Edward
Litchfield, '36, of Detroit, who won
the Delta Sigma Rho national speech
competition last year; Abe Zwerdling,
'36, Ann Arbor; William Centner, '38,
Battle Creek; Collins Brooks, '38,
*Grand Rapids; Harry Schniderman,
'38, Erie, Pa.; and William Harmon,
'38, Battle Creek.
This is the first year that Mr.
Secord has been connected with the
speech department of the University.
He is taking the place of Dr. James
H. McBurney who has been granted
a leave of absence. Secord received
his master's degree here last year
and prior to that was at Western
State Teachers College.
Socialized medicine will be the top-
ic for all debates. The schedule will
open with a dual debate December
12. One squad will debate Purdue
here on that date, and another will
journey to Urbana to meet the Uni-
versity of Illinois.
Extension Of Huron
Asked ForBy City
WPA funds for two projects, the
extension of the Huron River scenic
drive and the expansion of the boule-
vard system from Cedar Bend Drive
to Pontiac Road, will be requested
by Ann Arbor, the city council de-
cided at its meeting Monday night.
The Council adopted the recom-
mendations of the municipal con-
struction committee for the appoint-
ment of a seven-man committee to
consider the scenic drive extension.
This project is expected to require
$200,000 of WPA funds. The boule-
vard expansion program will require
between $25,000 and $50,000.
Boards of appeal for housing code,
state building code, and zoning were
appointed by the Council.t
Prof. L. M. Gram, head of the Civil
Engineering department heads the
housing board of appeal, while Prof.
L. J. Young of the forestry school
was named chairman of both the

New Radio Roof Discovered At
Washington, Late Reports Show
By JOHN C. INCKLEY
It's undoubtedly a fact that no
great new continent awaits discovery;
but there is an eerie atmospheric'
world from which pioneer explora-
tions are bringing remarkable re-
turns. Late reports from the Bureau
of Standards at Washington reveal
that a new radio roof has been dis-
covered 450 miles above terra firma,
from which high frequency signals
come bouncing back to us, according
to Harlan P. Stetson, Harvard as-
. All this electrified region from the
top of the roof to about 70 or 80
miles of the earth is being electrified
by radiations from the outer space,
and it is upon this region, called the
ionosphere, that scientists are making
long-distance explorations. Radio
seems to be the tool which the scien-
tists are using to map this uncharted
part of infinity.
"The technicaI language can be
boiled down to this," stated Stetson,
"The intensity with which the radio
waves are received depends in a large
measure upon the effect of sunshine
on the upper atmospheres, and the
intensity of OldSol's radiation has
been found by astronomers to vary
from month to month and year to
year." In several sunspot observator-
ies, such as the University's Lake An-
gelus station, the cycle of sunspots
is being recorded. andcharted in or-
der to determine the reasons for the
All this seemingly useless explora-
tion is because when the sunspots
are can be forecast ,and the reasons
for their occurrence settled, radio re-
ception can be made immensely bet-
ter, by the construction of radio filt-
ers which will exclude to a great ex-
tent most of the static commonly em-
bodied in the present set, he con-
It is a commonly-known fact that
radio reception has improved greatly
in the past three years. This condi-
tion is due partly to the fact that
the radio manufacturers have learned
to make better sets through research
and experience, and partly because of
the lessening of the intensity of the
sunshine through the ionosphere.
Sunspots aren't newcomers to the
astronomical world, because in 1610°
Galileo discovered the principle of the
telescope and applied it to solar study.
Galileo wasn't the first one to view a
sunspot ,though, because there are
legends in Italy dating back some one
thousand years before that great
physicist telling of enormous sun-
A sunspot is a tropical hurricane
raging in the sun's atmosphere-a
hurricane that would turn a Florida
whirlwind green with envy.
The reason for static is interfering
and belligerent electric waves. When
a program is broadcast, taking Bing
Crosbyrfor shining example, Bing's
voice skids out every which way on
radio waves, and slides its crooning
way along the ground on a ground
wave. After the sky wave is bounced
back to earth ,it reaches your set, if
it has been delayed along the way in
the ionosphere by the sunshine, a
fraction of a second later than the
ground wave ,and this complication
Professor Wesiey H. Maurer of the
Journalism department has recently
returned from Milwaukee where he
attended the fourth Health Educa-
tion Institute of the American Pub-
lic Health Association. About 250
people attended the three-day session
of the institute, mainly health of-
ficers of the various states.
Professor Maurer had charge of two
sessions of the conventions, Friday
night and Saturday morning. At the
first meeting the topic which he dis-
cussed was "Enlisting Community
Organizations in a Public Health
Program." At the Saturday morn-
ing session the subject was "Social
Engineering in Public Health."

Aid Required For
LANSING, Oct. 8.- (P) - Auditor
General John J. O'Hara urged county
boards of supervisors today to pro-
vide additional office help for county
treasurers to record payments of de-
linquent taxes resulting from the
state's advertising campaign.
O'Hara said that dangers of errors
and non-recording of tax payments
might result in the sale of property
for taxes next May if county treas-
urers did not receive aid. The tax re-
turns, he said, had swamped county
treasurers locally'and he has been be-
sieged by protests. He said that some
of the tax payments may not find
their way into the records before the
land involved is advertised for sale.
