Professor Hammett Tells
Story Of Grand Rapids'
Rise To Leadership
Prof. Ralph W. Hammett of the
school of architecture continued the
"Michigan, My Michigan" series of
talks over WJR yesterday through
the University Broadcasting Service,
speaking on furniture making in
"Furniture making is Michigan's
oldest major industry," he began,
adding that this state "stands at the
head of the list" in this industry.
Describing Grand Rapids as "the fur-
niture city" of Michigan, he said,
"Most American furniture design
originates there, for Grand Rapids
sets the pace in the latest in furni-
Professor Hammett described the
furniture expositions that are held
in Grand Rapids semi-annually, at
which the new models of furniture are
displayed. "These furniture mar-
kets," he declared, "cover more area
than the National Automobile Shows
and upwards of 200 manufacturers,
leaders in the industry, display their
models of new furniture." They are,
however, he wept on, open only to re-
tailers with proper identification.
Turning to the story of the rise of
Grand Rapids to furniture fame, Pro-
fessor Hammett related how the com
bination of Dutch immigrant crafts-
men and enterprising and commer-
cially ambitious Yankees from the
northeastern states combined to bring
the city to supremacy. The fact tha
"these old pioneer furniture makers
of Grand Rapids made such good fur -
niture, better than the usual small
town cabinet makers could supply"
and that such beautiful woods as wal-
nut, cherry and maple abounded in
Michigan, had much to do with this
rise, the speaker declared. "Mich-
igan had the advantage in the early
days," he said, "and the good name
which these early furniture manufac-
turers acquired from the very start,
with very few exceptions, has been
kept to the present time."
The furniture industry, Professor
Hammett continued, has been intro-
duiced into almost every state in the
union, but the attempts have not
caught on. Several times furniture
marts have been established in other
cities and millions of suites of shod-
dily-made furniture introcuced, he
said, but these attempts to overthrow
the Grand Rapids' position have not
succeeded. "Not a single Michigan
manufacturer has stooped to lessen
the quality of his product" Professor

Lansing Convention Opens
With Report On Affairs
LANSING, Jan. 28.- (JP) -Some
200 members of Michigan boards of
supervisors assembled here today in
annual convention to hear a report
on state affairs by Governor Fitz-
The interest of delegates in the
opening session of the state associa-
tion of supervisors of Michigan was
divided between the remarks they
expected from the governor, and a
gathering demand that the rural
districts be given more generous sums
for educational purposes.
The goverflor indicated he would
review his accomplishments in office
and deliver a brief outline of the
things he hopes to accomplish.
Eugene B.pElliott, state superin-
tendent of public instruction, is to
follow the governor in an address on
"Public School Finances." A period
on the program marked 'discussion'
opened the way for rural supervisors
to tell the superintendent of their
home district problems and to de-
mand more funds for the future.
Tomorrow the storm surrounding
the administration of relief in Mich-
igan is expected to break. Supervis-
ors who participated in the so-called
"welfare fund rebellion" of last fall
were prepared to blast the federal
ultimatum that they must contribute
to a joint federal-state-county relief
fund in amounts that federal author-
ities consider adequate or be denied
federal benefits. The suspension of
Allegan county from federal aid for
its welfare problem ended the re-
bellion last fall, but visitors indicated
today that they "took it but we will
tell somebody that we did not like it."
Dr. William Haber, state emer-
gency relief administrator, is pro-
gramed for an address tomorrow
forenoon. Here. too, the notation
"discussion" on the program opened
the way for dissatisfied supervisors
to air their views.

Back From Manila
Prof. Harley H. Bartlett, chairman
of the botany department, returned
Monday to Ann Arbor after teaching
in the University of the Philippines
Prof. Jose K. Santos was a member,
of the faculty here to take the place
of Professor Bartlett when he left
Jan. 1, 1935. For the past few years
the University and the University of

fessors for the second semester of each
Eleven Saved But Two
Die As Rush Memorial
MALVERN, Pa., Jan. 28. - (P) -
Seventeen children owed their lives
today to a nurse and other persons
who rescued them from a fire which
burned to death two six-year-old
boys in a wooden pavilion of the Rush
Memorial hospital for consumptives
The children and the nurse, Miss
Helen Rittenhouse, were asleep last
night when the pavilion burst into
flames. She was awakened by the
smoke, however, in time to start
carrying out the children.
Hospital attendants and passing
motorists quickly came to her aid, but
before the rescue work could be
completed, the structure collapsed.
The hospital, outside the town, has
no fire hydrants in the vicinity. Fire-
men chopped ice from a pond nearby
in a vain attempt to get water.
Appleton Group Is Given
Phonographic Reply To
Request From Abbot
By E. BRYCE ALPERN
They may talk about the wonders
of science and of modern miraculous
inventions, but all these dwindle into
insignificance when compared to the
fact that President Alexander G.
Ruthven spoke to the Alumni Club!
of Appleton, Wis., while he was in
the hospital, and didn't even know it.
Not only did President Ruthven
speak to this Alumni Club, but also
Coach Harry Kipke and Prof. Ar-
thur Cross of the history department
addressed the assembly without
Thisnseemingly impossible event
was not a result of a miracle, but
only of the new recording equipment
which has recently been installed in
the Broadcasting Studio in Morris
At 11 a.m. last Friday, Prof. Waldo
Abbot, director of broadcasting, re-
ceived the following telegram from'
Appleton: "Forward records for use
Michigan Club organization meeting
next Tuesday." Knowing that Presi-
dent Ruthven was in the hospital,
and unable to locate Coach Kipke,
Professor Abbot was hard up for
speakers for his records.
After pondering a moment, how-
ever, Professor Abbot searched
through his files of records and ex-
tracted three: a speech given pre-
viously before another alumni group
by President Ruthven, a talk given
by Coach Kipke just before the Co-
lumbia game last year, and a speech
made by Professor Cross concerning
the growth of the University.
Standing before the microphone in
the recordiig room, Professor Ab-
bot, with the recording apparatus set
in motion, introduced President
-- Today & Thursday
"THE BISHOP MISBEHAVES"
Ruthven, and then ran off the record
of his former speech, thus obtaining
one complete record, with speech and
introduction upon it. Using the
~ame procedure, he made records of
the other two speakers.
Hunting again in his files, Profes-
sor Abbot selected recordings of num-
bers played by the band and the
glee club, including the selections,
"The Yellow and the Blue" and the
'Lady In Red' Asks
LANSING, Jan. 28. - (W) -- A Chi-
cago attorney called upon the state
of Michigan today to pay its debt
to "the lady in red."
Thomas J. Johnson, Jr., of Chicago,
wrote Gov. Fitzgerald that he repre-
sents Mrs. Anna Sage, who is cred-
ited with pointing out John Dillinger
to federal agents before a Chicago
theatre July 22, 1934. Dillinger died
in the gun battle which followed.
Mrs. Sage won her cognomen from
the flaming clothes she wore. John-
son told the governor she already
has collected a reward from the fed-
eral government and pointed out that
former Gov. William A. Comstock had
joined the governors of Ohio, Indiana,
Illinois and Minnesota in promising
$5,000 reward for Dillinger's appre-
the business district here early today
destroyed three two-story buildings
causing a loss estimated by insurance
officials at $175,000.

Frank B. Devine, chairman of the

clared that the organization was
"non-partisan" insofar as particular
candidates, were concerned. Support
will be given the Republican party as

The local Lincoln League has no con-

administration is undesirable."
The League is planning a Lincoln's

more than 600 people are expected to
