which is a large assumption, there
would be basis for application of the
idea. It might, however, be subject
to abuse. It is well worthy of con-
Dr. William M. Brace of the Health
Service expressed the belief that if
euthanasia became a law it would
have to be administered by a board
or commission appointed by the State
Medical Society or the American
Medical Association to avert serious
"If we could be sure that such a
law would be carried out in an ideal-
istic way, it should be given very
serious consideration," Dr. Margaret
Bell of the Health Service said. She
felt, however, that we do not have
enough definite information on this
subject to map a plan or action.
Another objection is, according to
Dr. Bell, that no matter how high
the ethics of the medical profession
are, some people would take advan-
tage of such a situation. There have
been many cases, she remarked, where
a patient thought to be doomed to
a slow, painful 'death has to a con-
siderable measure regained his health.
That euthanasia should be the sub-
ject of considerable thought was ex-
pressed by Dr. Lavinia G. MacKaye,
instructor in pediatrics, but she felt
that from the standpoint of a pedia-
trician a board or commission should
decide upon anydaction taken in the
case of a child doomed to imbecility
if a euthanasia law should be passed.
She also believed that the burden
placed upon society by institutions
for the care of the mentally deficient
and incurables is not heavy enough
to necessitate the consideration of
such a law now.

LANSING, Nov. 8.- (R) -The State
liquor control commission wearied it-
self today with a new variation of the
ancientngame of "button, button."
"Where," demanded Chairman
John S. McDonald of various em-
ployes marshaled before him, "is that
$97,000 bid for our light wine stock?
And who is Mr. Michaels?"
With tiresome regularity the an-
swer came to both questions, "I don't
Chairman McDonald announced
following Tuesday's commission
meeting that a "Mr. Michaels" of New
York had submitted a successful bid
of $97,000 for the state's complete
light wine stock, which cost the com-
Asked today who "Mr. Michaels"
is, McDonald summoned Walter A.
Rice, attorney employed by the com-
mission, to answer. Rice said he
didn't know. McDonald asked to see
the bid, and Rice said he didn't have
McDonald called Michael E. Car-
penter, head of the alcohol control
division, to his office and repeated the
questions - and Carpenter repeated
the answers. Gilbert H. Isbister, sec-
retary of the commission, stood four-
square on the same' answers.
McDonald insisted the last time he
saw the bid was when Joseph Schles-
singer, a commission employe, had it
in his hand and was leading the un-
identified "Mr. Michaels' 'toward the
Greek Royalists Stage Demonstration

The elections to determine whether the monarchy would be restored
in Greece was a sign for royalists to stage long and hearty demonstra-
tions for King George 11. An almost unanimous vote for the exiled
leader was recorded.

Schlessinger declared he had never
seen the bid and does not know who
Mr. Michaels is. The chairman de-
clared he would investigate the bidder'
before signing any contract and
would require him to prove that he
represents a reputable firm and will
not sell the wine in Michigan.
Rice told the chairman he under-
stood Michaels intended to form a
company to sell the wine in Mich-
igan. Isbister said Michaels was ac-
companied to the commission by sev-
eral friends, apparently interested in
the outcome of Michaels' bid.
The commission has not received a
deposit on the bid. None of the wine
has been delivered. McDonald ad-
mitted the commission wouldhnot
know where to deliver it. The chair-
man intimated that the bid --if it is
found - may be rejected.
J. J. Sugarman, Inc., of Los An-
geles, Calif., submitted a bid of $94,-
000 for the wine and met a rejection.
The bid was raised Wednesday to
$110,000, but McDonald ruled the
bidding had closed.
The wine, all under 16 per cent
alcoholic content, cannot be sold
through commission stores, McDon-
ald said, and the commission is will-
ing to accept a loss and clear its

Roy Boshaw, Milner Hotel, was
driving south on the Foster road
when a rear tire blew out. The ex-
plosion threw the car about 20 feet
from the road and onto the rail-
road tracks. The passengers at-
tempted to flag the oncoming train
but failed. The only method of warn-
ing the engineer was the lighting of
matches. There was no time to start
a signal fire.

Thieves Steal Securities
From Railroad Car After
Sub-Machine Gun Raid
GARRETTSVILLE, O., Nov. 8. -
(/P) - A widespread search, one of the
most extensive in recent northern
Ohio history, was under way today
after six mail car robbers seized $34,-
000 in currency and $12,450 in secur-
ities at the Erie railroad station here.
With every movement carefully
planned, the gang held up more than
a dozen persons, covering them with
sub-machine guns and pistols soon
after train No. 626 stopped yesterday
The engineer, fireman and mem-
bers of the mail car crew were ordered
onto the station platform alongside
men and women bystanders. Pouches
containing the money were thrown
out of the car, to be carried by two
victims to the gang's automobile.
One shot was fired, which grazed the
forehead of Orlin Workman, a mail
In a small sedan, apparently pur-
chased expressly for the robbery, the
gang fled toward Ravenna. The

lead, was centered in the larger

land, Warren, Youngstown and Can-
The currency was consigned to the
