Complicity In Kidnaping Is Denied By Suspect
NEW YORK,, Dec. 16. --- (A') -Fed-
eral G-men joined New York police
today in a search for Caleb J. Milne,
fourth, handsome actor-scion of an
old Philadelphia family, after a letter
to his brother indicated he had been
iddnaped for ransom.
"We have your brother in the coun-
try," was the purport of the letter,
postmarked Poughkeepsie, N. Y.
"Keep in touch with your grand-
father in Philadelphia and have a
large sum of cash available. We will
communicate with you again."
Although the 24-year-old youth's
grandfather, Caleb J. Milne, second,
retired textile magnate, scoffed at the
idea of an abduction, Clarence D. Mc-
Iean, New England chief of depart-
ment of justice agents, said at Boston
federal men had been called in.
The youth's disappearance was re-
ported yesterday by his 18-year-old
brother, Frederic, with whom he
shared a studio apartment on East
37th St. Frederic told police his
brother left a note Saturday saying
he had gone to Philadelphia with a
"Dr. Green of Gracie Square" because
their grandfather was ill.
A police search failed to discover a
man named Green in that vicinity,
and the grandfather reported he was
well and had not sent for the youth.
"I don't believe the boy was kid-
naped," the grandfather said.
Young Milne's parents are sep-
arated. He and his brothers were in
the custody of their mother, Mrs.
Frederica Milne, who hastened here
last night from her home in Wood-
stock, N. Y.

Michigan was featured last night
on "The Campus of the Air" a pro-
gram which is devoted to a different
college each week. In the past two
years Michigan has been the subject
of one of these broadcasts.
In 1933 the University was looked
at from the historical standpoint and
significant incidents in its develope-
ment since its beginning more than
100 years ago were dramatized.
Student life was the angle treated
in the program in 1934, and besides
the singing and playing of Michigan's
songs various episodes from campus
life were dramatized.

Wilkinson's, 325 S. Main St. 7A
} the adoption of the Townsend Plan
were heard Sunday when the Ann
Arbor Forum held its fifth meeting,
pondering over the problems of old
age pensions and the practicability
of Dr. Townsend's plan to pay a
i monthly pension of $200 to every man
and woman of 60 years or more.
The attack against the proposal was
led by Prof. Arthur E. Wood of the
sociology department who denounced
it, as a "fantastic panacea" of the
type that "lures people away from
sound social thinking."
Professor Wood stated further that
it does not have the support of any
"qualified economists." The sales tax
by which the necessary funds would
be raised, he asserted, is a "vicious
and socially undesirable form of tax-
ation" which places the larger share
of the burden on those least able
to pay. The difficulty of "squaring"
the reduced national income of 49 bil-
lion dollars with $200 monthly pen-
sions to the ten million people of
60 years or more he cited as a third
defect of the plan.
"It is not at all clear," Professor
Wood declared, "that the plan will
solve the depression as its advocates
say it will. They must show exactly
how it will achieve that result. Pos-
sible inflation under the plan, with
resultant higher prices," he continued,
"might have disastrous effects upon
that part of the population below the
60-year age mark."
Answering Professor Wood's attack,
Mr. Clarence Newman, member of
the Mack School faculty, said that the
plan is "sound, sane and humane";
that it has been rendered inevitable
by the advent of what he termed
the "era of scarcity" and by the
"contracting economy of the machine
age; and that the only alternatives
are the complete socialization of all
industry and fascism.
Mr. Newman suggested that the
"qualified economists" to which Pro-
fessor Wood referred to have not
studied the plan, are too busy to do

After comparing Dr. Townsend with
Abraham Lincoln in that both were
once poor farm boys and that both
"have had plans for emancipation,"
Mr. Newman conceded that he does

the plan into operation would be.
raised, but made the "practical sug-
gestion" that they be taken in part
from the works relief appropriations,
out of which, he said, the administra-
tion has already taken funds for pur-
poses other than relief, and in part
from the nation's annual interest in-
debtedness of 16 billion dollars.
The Townsend Plan, Mr. Newman
asserted, would eliminate or reduce
a number of evils created by the
"scarcity-machine order." It would
lessen the need for installment buy-
ing; he said, and for the insurance
and endowment policies made neces-
sary by insecurity; reduce crime and
its costs; reduce war costs brought
about by trade rivalries; eliminate
poor houses; lessen the amount of in-
sanity; eliminate much advertising;
and greatly reduce the welfare bur-

contributions from downtown did not

up to expectations, it was reported.
Two coeds "sold" the University
Hospital.On the first floor were
many charity patients, and they were
reported as giving as much as did doc-

did a little colored waif down on Main
Street, who declared he "sho wanted

A few of the fraternities thought
they were being discriminated against
when they received as many as 30
copies of The Daily and only 6 tags.
The brothers without tags were im-
mediately spotted as they made their
way to their classes, and with a re-
luctant smile contributed again. The

So Weak After All
Recent figures released by Mrs.
Byrl Fox Bacher, assistant dean of
women, shoW that the male students
were not the only ones putting them-
selves through college last year.
The figures for 1934-35 reveal fur-
ther that the fair sex is no longer
the weaker sex, and that their versa-
tility is only outdone by their willing-
ness to work at most anything in
order to get a college education.
Of the approximate figure of 2,400
women enrolled in the University last
year, 660 were either totally or par-
tially supporting themselves. Living
in private homes, 104 earned their
room and board by taking care of
children, doing housework and cook-
More than 150 women earned board
by working as waitresses in tea rooms
and doing kitchen work. More than
120 other co-edsworked by the hour
taking care of invalids and old people.
According to Assistant Dean Bach-
er, a large number of women paid for
part of their college expenses by reg-
istering as tutors, reading to invalids,
doing shampooing, mending, sewing
and occasional typing. The number
of women who earned money doing
that sort of work last year is not
known since the work was of a spor-
