Wild Spending1
Is Condemned
By Fitzoerald
Tells Manufacturers That
Michi ,n Will Not Go
Over State Budget t

Saves Accused Husband From Kidnap Charge

Fears Future I)ebt
Business Must Lead Way
To Prosperity; Spending
Is Futile
DETROIT, Dec. 5.-(AP)-Michigan
will not follow the example of the
New Deal as a "fairyland blowing
billion dollar bubbles," Gov. Frank
D. Fitzgerald told the Detroit As-
sociation of Manufacturers' repre-
sentatives, a food products organi-
zation in an address here last night.
"I shrink from thinking about the
increase in taxation that will be
necessary to pay off the debt now
being piled up," the governor said.
"You could confiscate all the large
fortunes in the country and still
be a long way from the debt free
Cites Balanced Budget
"Here in Michigan, however, we
believe the state has no right to
saddle its people with new debts, that
it must get along on its income.
Michigan has a balanced budget.
Michigan is not adding a single penny
to her public debt, and she will
not, under this administration."
He complained that Michigan has
nothing to say about how the money
it contributes to the Federal govern-
ment is spent and that the state pays
many more millions into the federal
treasury than it receives. The gov-
ernor declared Michigan has been
unable to gt funds from Washington
for much needed hospital facilities
or money to care for crippled and in-
digent children.
Scores Governmental 'Experts'
"But then," he continued, "we are
old fashioned. The experts can't ap-
preciate our simple demands. They
work in a world of their own, on a
higher plane I presume, and produce
funds for Michigan to build rearing
ponds for fish.
"If I speak with' some bitterness
it is because I cannot help protest-
ing the extravagance, the short-
sightedness, the wasted opportunity
to be of service to unfortunates who
have every right to look for help."
The governor declared that bus-
iness must lead the way back to
prosperity under its own power and
that governmental efforts to "spend
the nation back to prosperity" must
Attacks National Spending
"The bubbles have been pretty
enough-all lighted up in bright
hues. They have offered many suf-
fering people the hope of a new
life in an enchanted land. In our
national spending we have talked of
money in terms so large a mere bil-
lion doesnt mean anything any more.
"I wonder if that sense of propor-
tion still will be lacking on the day
when the billion dollar bubbles burst,
and the rubber band of national
credit snaps--when government, at
the end of its spending spree, turns
wearily to the people and says "it is
time for you to foot the bill.'"
Andrews Worse
Declares Doctor
The condition of Ross Andrews, 69
years ,old, a resident of the County
Home, was described as worse late
yesterday by Dr. C. L. Washburne,
staff surgeon of St. Joseph's Mercy
Hospital. His injuries are so severe
that he is not expected to live through
the week.
Andrews was hurt Tuesday when
he was hit by a skidding car, driven
by Mrs. Marian L. Whitmire of Yp-
silanti, as he was walking across
Washtenaw Road, directly in front
of the County Home.
Dr. Washburne stated that An-

drews' injuries consist of a crushed
right chest, a ruptured lung and
fractures of the collar bone and right
arm. In addition he is suffering from
pneumonia brought on by exposure
and the injured lung.
IONIA, Dec. 5.-(P)-City officials
said today that the city's present
financial status will make it impos-

After hearing 14-year-old Dorothy Bradley Roman testify she loved
her husband and wanted him back, a jury in Lewisburg, W. Va., hearing
the trial of William Roman, 33, itinerant worker, on kidnap charges
preferred by the girl's parents, disagreed. The girl, who became a
mother 18 months ago, disappeared from her home eight years ago.
Wood Urges Cure For Critical
Prison Unemployment Situation

Hell Week Is
F0wghit BY Men
At Conference
Bursley Says Group Seeks
Abolition Of Practice
By Fraternities
"Hell Week," the subject of con-
troversy on many college campuses
last year, assumed proportions of
importance at the National Inter-
fraternity Conference held last week
in New York City, it was reported by
Dean Joseph A. Bursley upon his re-
turn from the conference yesterday.
In contrast to the insistence of
many fraternity men on other cam-
puses that their national organiza-
tions required a "Hell Week," the
national organizations stood almost
unanimously against the practice
and urged its abolition, he said.
A resolution that all national or-
ganizations prepare a written state-
ment on their attitude toward "Hell
Week," to be published in booklet
form and sent to deans of all col-
leges was passed. Work on this pub-
lication has already commenced,
Dean Bursley said.
Dean Bursley was elected a mem-
ber of the Educational Advisory
Council, a standing committee con-
sisting of five college deans who rule
on all proposals and business of the
organization throughout the year.
Other members of the council are
Dean Gardner of Akron, charman;
Dean Speight of Swarthmore; Dean
Turner of Illinois; and Dean Arm-
strong of Northwestern.
Archery Gets The
Bird For Primeval
Forestry Student
Bows and arrows, as a means of
procuring game, are not yet out-
moded. Although it is true that ar-
chery has degenerated to some ex-
tent to shooting at a circular target,
the real fans are those who hunt
wild animals.
One of the most difficult animals
to bring down this way is a bird, and
so archers were surprised to hear
that Horace Nixon, a senior in the
forestry school, succeeded in bring-
ing back a cock pheasant with him
during hunting season.
Nixon, who lives in the Les Voy-
ageurs cabin, which is located near
the Huron River, was passing through
the woods near his home during
hunting season when he caught sight
of a large pheasant. The bird, be-
coming alarmed, sought safety in
the bushes and foliage nearby. The
archer, after winging three arrows
at the fleeing bird without hitting
it, saw the bird entering the pro-
tective bushes and sent one more
arrow after it.
Not being able to see whether or
not he had succeeded in wounding
the bird, he ran to the spot where
the bird had vanished.
Pinned to a fence post, the bird had
died without a cry. The arrow had
passed through the upper thigh,
buried itself up to its feathers, and
had impedded itself into a fence-post.
Nixon is intending to travel north
in search of bigger game, hoping
to bring down a deer sometime with
his fifty-pound bow.

At Rotterdam

Suggests State Buy Many
Supplies From Michigan
Penal Institution
Legislation compelling all state de-
partments and institutions to pur-
chase as much of their supplies from
the three penal institutions of Mich-
igan as those institutions can pro-
vide was urged yesterday by Prof.
Arthur E. Wood of the sociology de-
partment as a cure for the critical
prison unemployment situation creat-
ed by the Munshaw Prison Industries
The Munshaw Act, popularly
known as a "state use" law, provides
that prisoners shall not manufac-
ture any products except for the use
of the state government. It went into
effect November 22.
Professor Wood criticized the lack
of foresight of the legislature in pass-
ing the law before adequate plans
had been made to cope with prison
unemployment, which was already a
serious problem, amounting in Jack-
son Prison, the largest in the world,
to 40 per cent of the inmates.
He declared that "economic plan-
ning" in the form of a careful sur-
vey of prison industries by industrial
engineers should have preceded the
legislation. Lacking such a survey,
he said, the state is not prepared to.
meet the results of the "state use"
Statistics recently given by prison
officials at Lansing show that the
number of prisoners employed in the
three prisons dropped from 1,835
before the new law went into effect
to 1,030 at present, while the number.
of unemployed went up from 1,011
to 2,018.
Prison authorities originally in-
tended to take up some of the slack
in employment by the introduction of
five new industries in the prisons,
and bids for the installation of
equipment were asked.
It was decided later, however, that
the number of inmates who would be
employed by the new industries did
not justify the outlay.
Professor Wood explained that un-
rest among the prisoners is bound to
increase as a result both of the
greater amount of idle time, and be-
cause of the loss of all compensa-
tion whatsoever by the unemployed
He said, though, that the "state
use" law is a step in the right di-
rection, if it is combined with reme-
dial measures that would avoid the
prison unemployment problem. He

pointed out that Massachusetts has
already passed legislation requiring
state departments to buy as much as
is available from state penal insti-
tutions, and said that such a step
was the best- way out of Michigan's
The chief industries formerly car-
ried on in prisons which were at-
tacked as offering unfair competition
to private enterprises, and which
have now been discontinued, were
