substances emit spontaneously an in-
cessant stream of tiny particles, some
electrically positive and some nega-
tive, which were named alpha and
beta particles."
These particles, he said were later
found to be electrons or minute neg-
ative corpuscles, fired off with tre-
mendous speeds in the radioactive
process. "It soon became evident,"
he continued, "that all atoms must
contain some of these electrons and
that when one or more of them are
removed the atom becomes a positive

The opening lecture on the youth
series was delivered by Prof. Lowell
J. Carr of the sociology department
before the convention at 10:30 a.m.
Professor Carr pointed out that
"while it would be wrong to say that
the delinquent of today is the crim-
inal of tomorrow," many changes
are needed in the present social set-
up to help these delinquents adjust
themselves in time and escape a
criminal career.
The improvements which he
termed necessary for the solution of
the delinquency problem were
"strengthening the probation system,
a better coordination of agencies
dealing with the youth problem, the
study of the delinquency problem by
communities, larger psychiatric serv-
ice at state expense, and an informa-
tion service 'to give to communities
and organizations a constant flow
of facts."
Professor Howard M. Jones, the
first speaker on the afternoon's pro-
gram, discussed "The University and
the Iintellectual Life." Prof. Jones
stressed the idea that freedom is a
fundamental necessity in all phases
of education.
In defining the principles of a state
university, he said, "it must be open
to all who can profit by attending,
and must be characterized by a fre
choice of faculty members."
Professor Jones also emphasized
the fact that American universities
must avoid the forces now so evi-
dent in many European universities
which tend to political control of the
policies of the university.

Saginaw Strikers
To Resume Work
SAGINAW, Oct. 15. - (oPm)- Re-
sumption of work in the Saginaw
valley coal mines Wednesday was
forecast as the result of an agree-
ment on a new contract by the min-
ers' and operators' scale committees.
The agreement, announced by
Warren E. Pippin, of the Michigan
Coal Operators commission, provides
for 50 cents a day increase on day
rate work, 9.1 cents increase on load-
ing and a 10 per cent increase in
yardage. The agreement is subject
to approval of mine union delegates.
When work is resumed 1,400 miners
idle for more than a week, will return
to work.
Tax Collection

$20,658,265 Reduction
In Federal Revenues,
Treasury Reveals
WASHINGTON, Oct. 15. - (P) -
Dwindling tax collections are cutting
sharply into government revenues,
treasury figures revealed today.
Since Sept. 1 revenues declined
$20,658,285 from a year ago, despite
heavy income tax collections. Smaller
collections, principally from process-
ing taxes on farm products, more
than offset the booming income tax
Revenues since July 1 were report-
ed today at $1,097,412,273 compared
with $1,094,871,938 in the correspond-
ing period of last year. Unless these
returns soon start rising, the govern-
ment might find it difficult to reach
its revenue goal of $4,470,349,140 for
qhe full fiscal year ending next
June 30. In the previous fiscal year
collections were $3,800,467,202.
Officials explained it was too early
to base the full year's revenue possi-
bilities on the first 102 days of the
fiscal period, particularly in view
of the fact that heavy income tax col-
lections are expected next March.
These may help boost revenues up to
the President's estimates. In ad-
dition, more of the wealth tax levies
go into effect Jan. 1.

NOME, Alaska, Oct. 15. - (i') - As

ing the area," says George Maynard,
publisher of the Nome Daily Nug-

Nugget plant was destroyed but has
been rebuilt.
"Many of those old historical struc-
tures had outlived the first gold rush
period," he says. "In many respects,
last winter was a hard time for every-
one. Privations of living and hard-
ships of one kind and another beset
many of the people; but with the
coming of summer reorganization of
business and the building of homes

revealed today that John Gillespie,
once a millionaire and a power in
Michigan politics, is "in a hospital

He denied Gillespie is under tech-
nical arrest. He said a state trooper
drove Gillespite to Detroit last night
after Former State Treasurer Frank
D. McKay had declined to prefer
charges against Gillespie, whom he
said had spied on him.
Olander said he would debide
"when the time comes" whether an
armed guard at the office and resi-
dence of Gov. Fitzgerald is advisable.
He admitted that he would be no-
tified as soon as Gillespie leaves the
Detroit hospital and that he would
decide then whether to order guards
for the governor. Fitzgerald, as he
did once before when the governor
expressed fear Gillespie might try to
harm him.
