Fourth Fire In
Series Causes
$10,000 Losses
Firemen Say Conflagration
Started From Furnace
Or Furnace Pipes
The fourth in an epidemic of fires
of major importance here since Dec.
27 early yesterday morning caused
an estimated damage of approximate-
Il $10,000 in the building occupied by
the German-American Bakery and
the Ernst Electric Shop located at
26-207 E. Washington St.
Firemen, who fought the blaze for
more than three hours, thought that
it might have been caused from an
overheated furnace or furnace pipes,
although F. A. Sargeant, property
manager of the Sudworth estate
which owns the building, said that
the furnace which is located in the
basement of the bakery had just been
rebuilt and it was not likely that the
fire could have started there. It was
discovered about 1 a.m. by a passer-
by who immediately notified the po-
Damage to the building itself was
thought to be about $5,000. Anthony
J. Schwendemann, proprietor of the
bakery, estimated that damage to his
oven and other equipihent, together
with loss of the greater part of his
stock, would amount to between $2,-
500 and $3,000. It would be im-
possible to estimate the loss suffered
by the electric shop, Carl R. Ernst,
the proprietor, said, b'ecause the heat
and smoke damaged the furnishings,
stock and decorations so extensively.
Riding in the scout patrol car, pa-
trolmen Clark J. Earl and Rolland
J. Gainsley notified the fire depart-
ment about 2:30 a.m. when they no-
ticed smoke in the Pilgrim Shop, 533
E. Liberty St. A stock of coffee was
found burning in a rear room and
was put out with little difficulty.
An alarm turned in later in the
morning resulted from the discovery
of smoke coming from the furnace
in the, basement of the Mary Lee
Candy Shop, 300 S. State St. No
damage was reported.

Program For
Jobless Youth
Is Considered
Dean Edmonson Outlines
4 Important Requisites
Of Such A Plan
Placing emphasis upon the prob-
lem America faces in the growing
army of unemployed youths, Dean
J. B. Edmonson of the School of
Education, spoke recently upon
"America's Probable Program for
Unemployed Youth," over the Uni-
versity Broadcasting Service.
The very valuable discipline gained
through work is lacking in these un-
employed youths between 16 and 20,
Dean Edmonson commented. "It is
not surprising that there is restless-
ness and insecurity among youth be-
cause so few of them can set a real
goal with any feeling of confidence
or certainty that they shall be able
to attain success in its pursuit," he
Many Conditions Influential
Our youth problem has been creat-
ed by a variety of conditions, Dean
Edmonson continued, among them
the increase in the minimum age for
employnient and the curtailment of
school programs and recreational fa-
cilities. At the present time there
are practically no opportunities for
employment of young people, Dean
Edmonson stated, pointing out that
the elimination of younger workers
from industry has been going on at a
rapid rate since the World War.
"Society," the speaker said, "must
recognize its obligation to provide a
substitute for the former activity
provided through gainful employ-
ment. It is not clear that society
has as yet recognized this obliga-
Longer Schoolng Period Urged
"In my judgment America could
solve its youth problem through four
proposals of a longer period of school-
ing, a more varied and complete rec-
reational program, more opportunity
to be useful in community undertak-
ings and increased opportunity for
employment," Dean Edmonson de-
The speaker expressed confidence
of a program in which a guidance
and adjustment center would be set
up. This center would consult with
young people desiring to participate
in a program of work, education, rec-
reation and community service and
put them to work, as well as provid-
ing recreation.
Adult Education Helps
"An enlarged program of adult ed-
ucation would contribute greatly to
the development of the type of pro-
gram that is needed for unemployed
youth," Dean Edmonson added.
"It is encouraging to find that the
Federal Government has recognized
the seriousness of America's youth
problem and has created the National
Youth Administration," the speaker
stated. "The government has how-
ever reached only a fraction of the
five million young men and young
women out of work and out of school."
MUSKEGON, Jan. 14. - (IP) - The
Michigan division of the National Re-
employment Service was placed on a
reorganized basis Monday, the state
being divided into 13 districts on the

basis of population served. The old
setup included 16 districts.
D. A. van Oort, manager of the
Muskegon district, said that a 50 per
cent reduction of personnel had been
affected in his region.

Of Great Democrat Led
Way, Henderson States
The educational system of the!
State of Michigan, Dr. William W. D.
Henderson, director of the Extension
Division said today in a lecture over
the University Broadcasting Service,
was modeled after the educational
ideals set up by Thomas Jefferson.
Under Jefferson's principle, that
education is for all the youth and
children, Michigan became the first
state in the Union in which a free,
state-supported school system was
established, Dr. Henderson declared.
In fact, he added, "the University of
Michigan was the first state uni-
versity to be organized in this coun-
try. It is for this reason that it is
sometimes called 'the mother of state
Have New Conception
Jefferson's idea of "education for
all of the children of all of the
people was original and idealistic,"
Dr. Henderson continued, "but the
idea of the education of adults and
others who could not attend school,
had not yet dawned." In this new
day we have a new concept of educa-
tion. Education is for all people
throughout life, who have a hunger
and thirst for it. This is the funda-
mental ideal of university extension,"
Dr. Henderson said.
The university today is for three
things, he said: "to teach thoroughly
the students on the campus, to en-
large the boundaries of human
knowledge through research, and to
render to the people of the state its
services, educating all the people of
the state who want to be educated."
Idea Originated In England
"It was with this latter idea in
mind that the late Dr. Hutchins, then
president of the University, organized
the University of Michigan Exten-
sion Division," Dr. Henderson stated.
The idea, however, originated in
England, where the first lectures were
attended mainly by women, he em-
The Extension Division of the Uni-
versity of Michigan is a means, Dr.
Henderson pointed out, by which the
knowledge which is found and in-
terpreted by the University, is sup-
plied to the members of the com-
munity. It is also the means of en-
gendering the culture of the state,
"the university being the natural
source and fountain head of this at-
tribute of civilization," the speaker
More Than 600 Lectures Giveh
The University of Michigan Ex-
tension Division is made up of 12
bureaus, he explained. The first to
be organized was the bureau of exten-
sion lectures. Last year more than
600 lectures were given.
In addition, "extension courses are
conducted by members of the regu-
lar faculty in various centers of the
State, and credit is given towards a
degree." The University Library
sends out an enormous amount of
package library material to various
organizations, Dr. Henderson de-
clared. The Extension Division also
sponsors the High School Debating
League. The University, moreover,
he said, has cooperated with the
State and Government in connection
with the relief education of the
youth of the state, through this divi-
State Tourist Ads
Will Use$100,000
LANSING, Jan. 14. -- (P)-- The
state administrative board released
$100,000 to advertise the tourist and
resort business today, but referred
to its finance committee the question
of how the money shall be spent.
Auditor-General John J. O'Hara
protested that he believed the state
"can get better results." He infer-

entially criticized the advertising
campaigns carried on by the tourist
and resort associations. Hugh A.
Gray, of the Western Michigan Tour-
ist and Resort Association, contended
expenditures for this purpose are of
questionable value. He objected co a
tentative budget submitted by the as-
sociations because it did not include
advertising Mackinac Island.

Three tapestries hang on the walls
of the Lawyer's Club suffusing the
newness of that building with the
rich splendour of the past. They all
depict hunting scenes using warm
browns and reds to recreate the colors
Df a medieval forest.
Two of the tapestries hang in the
lobby and one is in the lounge. They
were given to the Club by William W.
Cook who formerly had them in his
home in New York City. The only
information that can be obtained
%bout them comes from the firm who
purchased them.
According to a letter from that
firm, "The most valuable of the tap-
estries, the small one, is known as a
Less Paroles
Issued During
Year Of 1935
Drop Of Fifteen Per Cent
Reported By Armstrong;
Commissioner Satisfied
LANSING - (A) - Parole Commis-
sioner Joseph C. Armstrong reported
to Gov. Fitzgerald today that 15 per
cent fewer paroles were issued in
1935 than in 1934, the last year of
the state Democratic administration.
The report showed that paroles
granted in 1935 totaled 2,439, as com-
pared to 2,835 in the previous year.
Gov. Fitzgerald granted seven par-
dons and signed 15 commutations of
sentences in 1935, as compared to 32
pardons and 39 commutations grant-
ed by his predecessor, Gov. William
A. Comstock, in 1934.
"In fact, the total actual paroles
was the lowest since 1927, when the
prison poulation was only 5,462 as
compared to a population of 7,500
on Jan. 1, 1935," Armstrong told Gov.
Armstrong's figures show that the
1935 paroles were 27 per cent fewer
than in 1932, and 28 per cent fewer
than in 1933. There were eight com-
muted sentences and one pardon in
1932, and 22 commuted sentences and
18 pardons in 1933.
"The commissioner is more partic-
larly satisfied by the response of those
paroled in 1935," Armstrong's report
said. "Of the 2,430 inmates released
by parole only 29 have been returned
on new convictions for prison sen-
tences, as of this date. Nor have
the people of the state been startled
and dismayed by a single heinous
crime during 1935 perpetrated by one
of the paroled inmates.
"While a guarantee is quite impos-
sible, it is true that a careful atti-
tude can be given some credit for
this fact. In other words, so far as
it is humanly possible to diagnose
them, those who may become social
menaces are destined for long time
confinement in prison."
Detroit Girl, 'Slain
Bly God,' Gradually
Recovering Health
DETROIT, Jan. 14. - (P)- Seven-
teen-year-old Shirley Tapp, who was
"slain by God" last Wednesday, ap-
peared to be recovering today from
the deep trance that come upon her
while attending a revival meeting of
the Full Salvation Union.
Her full recovery was not expected
by her father and mother, Mr. and
Mrs. Laverne Tapp, until tomrrow --
the seventh day.
At that time they believe that Shir-
ley will awaken, her "carnal nature
completely destroyed by God, and she
will be a sweeter and purer girl."
Mrs. Tapp revealed that the girl
may have a "message" for them.
Dr. Martin Hoffman, psychiatrist

from Eloise hospital, examined the
slumbering girl yesterday. He said
Shirley appeared to be in "an hys-
terical twilight state."
"Shirley," he said, "will come out
perfectly normal, provided she went
in perfectly normal."
The girl was able to stand and walk
a few steps without assistance.

Gothic tapestry and had its origin
in the 14th century. The other
tapestries are Italian Rennissance,
persumably of the 17th century.
These tapestries were purchased in
1910 from Baron Thomitz in Paris,
but there was no history obtainable
at the time of purchase."
Despite the mysterious past of
these tapestries, the governors of
the Lawyers Club have considered
them sufficiently valuable to insure
them for $50,000. According to the
. niversity property clerk's office, this
policy is higher than that for any
other individual objects of art on the
campus. This amount applies to all
or one of the tapestries implying that
the value of all three exceeded this
amount, it was stated.
It is unfortunate that the story of
tnese hangings is lost, for it would
no doubt tell of mighty war counsels
held within the walls on which they
}rung. They might have decorated
the stone walls of some castle dining
hall where extravagant feasts were
enjoyed in the light of a myriad of
torches - but all of this is only futile
conjecture. It is, however, conjec-
ture that is easily made after gazing
on these products of medieval craft-
marship that still manifest the art-
istry that went into their creation six
centuries ago.

New West-East
Air Trip Mark
Nos-Stop Transcontinental
Flight Made In 9 Hours,
27 Minutes By Rich Ace
NEW YORK, Jan. 14. -(P)-
Howard Hughes, lanky young mil-
lionaire Hollywood producer, tonight
wore nonchalantly the crown of the
nation's aerial speed king.
Unheralded, he dropped down at
Newark Airport early today with a
new non-stop transcontinental speed
mark in his grasp, a mark bettering
by approximately 35 minutes the ex-
isting record of Col. Roscoe Turner.
"There isn't a record that can't be
beaten," he said easily.
Hughes in a Northrup monoplane
belonging to Jacqueline Cochrane,
feminine speed ace, flew from Bur-
bank, Calif., to Newark in 9 hours, 27
minutes, 10 seconds, smashing Turn-
er's mark of 10 hours, 2 minutes, 51
seconds set in September, 1934.
He took off without public notice
in the afternoon, and with his wire-
less out of order, raced unobserved
across the Continent at an average
speed of about 260 miles an hour at
altitudes from 15,000 to 18,000 feet.
Over one stretch between Indian-
apolis and Columbus he attained a
speed of approximately 295 miles an
Hughes, who is 33 years old, now
holds two of the major air records.
Last summer he achieved the na-
tional speed record for land planes
over a closed course when he flew
352.46 miles an hour.
Although he did not get to bed
until after 4:30 a.m., Hughes was
up by 9 a.m. to receive callers in the
wrinkled gray suit worn on the flight.
"I've been wanting to do this for
three years," he said. "I feel pretty
good about it."
He plans to fly back to the Coast
in a few days on a leisurely schedule,
making a few stops en route, and
with no intention of attempting to
break his own record -even though
he adheres to the belief that records
are made to be broken. He indicated,
however, he would contest efforts to
take his transcontinental crown from
Hughes, wealthy from Texas oil,

took a flier at Hollywood and emerged
as one of the most successful movie
producers, screening "Hell's Angels,"
which sent Jean Harlow to stardom,
"Front Page," and "Scarface"-- all
