appointment at the grid defeat was
made plain.
June 5, 1910, following a baseball
game between Michigan and Notre
Dame which the Wolverines won, an
editorial appeared entitled "Brass
Knuckle Athletics." The editorial
said, "It's high time to call quits
with Notre Dame - there being a
limit to rowdyism which even a free
lance university as Michigan (Michi-
gan was not then affiliated with the
Western Conference) has to stand.
Why does Michigan continue to give
that institution character and pres-
tige by putting up with her mucker
spirit? We have nothing to gain .
Notre Dame is universally a sup-
porter of 'ringsters' and ineligibles
such that she has absolutely no
stading, in respectable company."
It continues, "the disgraceful dem-
onstration of the Indiana athletes
during yesterday's game is a climax
of a long series of questionable acts."
No reference is made to the "dis-
graceful demonstration" in the news
account of the game, but it had evi-
dent reference to a fistic encounter
between Notre Dame players and the
game's official.
in the fall of 1910, with a Michi-
gan-Notre Dame football game sched-
uled for Nov. 6, The Daily said, "ru-
mors persistently circulating give ap-
pearance that something is doing"
with regard to Michigan protesting
the play of certain Notre Dame play-
ers. But the athletic board, meeting
the previous night, made no state-
ment beyond stating that "Michigan
expects that Notre Dame will not
play any men who are not eligible
under their contract, which contains
the rules of eligibility adopted by

Tournament, and decided to move on
up to the top flight.
So successful was he that he was
named as an alternate on the United
States Olympic team and although
handicapped by lack of practice while
attending school, he has improved
enough in the last year to rank with
any skiier in this country.
In yesterday's trials at Garmisch-
Pgrtenkirchen, Germany, Bietila
leaped 64 meters (209.92 feet) in each
of two jumps, outdistancing his near-
est American rival, Dick Durrance of
Dartmouth by four meters on both
Despite Bietila's performance in
outjumping the best of the United
States competitors, he placed seventh
in the trials, the first five places go-
ing to Norway's ski riders with Birger
Ruud taking individual honors.
Bietila is one of a family of expert
skiiers, and at the last meet in which
he and other members of his family
competed first places in the three
major classes went to the clan Bietila.
In addition to his brother Paul, who
even now is almost his older brother's
equal, he has three other brothers,
who like himself, have been skiing
ever since they can remember. His
youngest brother, just 'ten years old;
has recently ridden the big jump at

Ishpeming and soon will be ready to
join his brothers in their assaults on
jumps all over the world.

Slain Louisiana Senator
With Sweeping Victory
NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 23. -(P) -
The slain Huey Long appeared today
to have scored another sweeping vic-
tory at the Louisiana polls.
Early returns from yesterday's
Democratic primary showed Long's
candidates running as much as 80,-
000 votes ahead. The New Orleans
count was nearly complete and while
relatively few of the rural parishes
(counties) had been heard from they
were not expected to reverse the
trend. The Long forces carried New
Orleans by 65,000 votes.
Political lieutenants of the assas-
sinated senator hailed the results as
"vindication" of Long and indorse-
ment of his Share-the-Wealth plan.
They also saw in the vote a rebuke
to President Roosevelt and the New,
Anti-Long leaders reserved com-
ment pending more complete returns
but the New Orleans Times-Picayune,
an anti-Long organ, conceded nomi-

San Francisco's gigantic bridge, which will soon span the entire Golden Gate, is rapidly taking shape.
Contrary to the usual procedure, the causeway of the bridge, as shown in this Asscciated Press photo, is being
started in the center instead of at the ends. The horizontal construction in the foreground of this airview is
the first part of the great thoroughfare to be suspended from the cables.


Split In Ranks
Of Democratic
Dissension Of Party Heads
May Result In To State
Conventions In Spring
DETROIT, Jan. 23. - (UP)-- Mich-
igan Democrats who in 1932 upset a
tradition of many decades by win-
ning nearly all state electives offices
only to lose most of them in subse-
quent off-year elections, are ponder-
ing the possibilities of two delegav-
tions being sent to their national
convention in Philadelphia next June.
Dissension within the party's state
ranks kept the distribution of federal
patronage in abeyance for more than
two years after the 1932 election, and
may bring about two state conven-
tions this spring. Another potential
controversy is a movement favored
among the younger element of the
party to offer Democratic support to
Senator James Couzens, elected on a
Republican ticket six years ago.
The yDemocrats will hold a "pre-
primarycnenin before their
regular state meeting to "endorse"
and "recommend" candidates to be
voted upon in the nominating pri-
maries next September.
O'Hara Is Troublesome
Pilmer B. O'Hara, of Detroit, chair-
man of the Democratic state central
committee, is the present factor for
uneasiness among party stalwarts.
O'Hara was convicted recently of
having paid a county drain commis-
sioner money to influence a condem-
nation award a few years ago; he
was also named in an indictment
charging 32 individuals with tamper-
ing with ballots during a recount of
votes cast for secretary of state and
attorney-general in the 1934 state
election. Democrats lost both these
The Democratic state central com-
mittee, lacking legal means to un-
seat O'Hara as chairman, voted his
powers to an executive committee.
The executive committee recently de-
cided to hold the state convention in
Grand Rapids on May 21. Admitting
it had no right to call a convention,
its members said the full committee
would be asked to ratify the action.
Illegal, O'Hara Says
O'Hara, contending the executive
committee's action was illegal, threat-
ened to call another convention. The
committee retorted by claiming to
hold the balance of power on the full
state committee. "If he calls a con-
vention," said Rual H. Price, executive
committee chairman, "we'll take it
away from him."
There appears to be unanimity on
one thing -Michigan's delegation to
Philadelphia will go instructed to
vote for Roosevelt.

Telephone Maniac
Fails To See Any
Need For Receiver
A new kind of insanity known to
medical science, has been discovered
by the line men of the Bell Tele-
phone Company. It might be termed
" receiver-phobia."
Six times this semester someone
has taken the receiver away with him.
All he has left is the end of the wire,
for he apparently believes the stu-
dents on the campus are geniuses and1
don't need the receiver.

Right now two telephone men are
disgusted. Six times the receiver has
been stolen, and six times the' same
two men have had to replace

maliciously abusing property of the

Smith To Lash
Roosevelt Says
New York Post
NEW YORK, Jan. 23.- (A') --The
New York Post says Alfred E. Smith
in his address at the American Lib-
erty League dinner in Washington
next Saturday, is expected to demand
that the Democratic party reaffirm
its 1932 platform and nominate a
candidate for President pledged to
carry out the provisions of this plat-
"His friends best qualified to know,"
the Post, a pro New Deal paper, con-
tinues, "believe he may even go
so far *,* as to attempt to read
President Roosevelt out of the party,
amazing as such a thing would be.
"There is no doubt in the minds of
Mr. Smith's intimate friends that he
will insist the Roosevelt administra-
tion has departed from the precepts
of the 1932 platform and will cite
chapter and verse in an attempt to
prove his argument.
"The point in doubt is whether
* * he will then declare that Mr.
Roosevelt, because of his policies,
could not be accepted as the man
to run on that platform this fall.
"Should Mr. Smith go to such
lengths, it would show a willingness
to make what is regarded even by
the majority of his closest friends in
the Democratic party as a hopeless
fight to block Mr. Roosevelt's re-
nomination. * *"."

Huge Low-cost
Housing Plans.
Are Prepared
WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. - (A') -
Plans for a gigantic low-cost hous-
ing program were almost ready today
for presentation to President Roose-
velt by officials who have been quiet-
ly drafting them for him.
They call for a permanent govern-
mental agency to direct the program
over a long period of years in con-
junction with states and municipal-
I ities.
Federal funds would be offered to
encouragelocal governments to inau-
gurate slum clearance and housing
projects. How much money the trea-
sury will put up remains, of course,
to be determined by the President
and Congress. But some of the
planners visualize appropriations of
$300,000,000 or $400,000,000 annually,
to be more than doubled by local
In addition to low-cost housing,
the proposals it is said, aim to en-
courage private construction, perhaps
through more liberal Federal insur-
ance of loans for new residential
building and modernization.

Birds Face Death;
Food Insufficient
GRAND RAPIDS, Jan. 23. -(R) -
John Koll, state conservation officer
for Kent County, said today that
pheasants, quail and many smaller
birds are facing starvation unless
sportsmen and farmers supply them
with feed at once.
The recent heavy snows have cov-
ered most of the weeds and other
normal food supplies for the birds, he
said. Koll said he believed the con-
dition was statewide.
