.Karpis Escapes G-Men
In Arkansas Raid
HOT SPRINGS, Ark., March
30.-- (A') - Police Chief Joe Wa-
kelin said tonight that Arkansas
state police, postoffice inspectors
and Department of Justice men
were seeking Alvin Karpis, pub-
lie enemy No. 1, and a companion
he described as Harold Johnson in
an unsuccessful raid on a sum-
mer cottage near here early today.
Wakelin agreed to discuss the
case after he was informed that
Wint Smith, chief of the Kansas
state police, had been quoted in
an official statement as saying
the raid failed to apprehend Kar-
pis, wanted for the $200,000 Bre-
mer kidnaping at St. Paul in'1934.

She had visited him only a few

Fisher. who contended that "new
evidence" warranted a reprieve, dis-
cussed the Pardons Court decision in
vigorcus language at first but then
withdrew his remarks.
Attorney General David T. Wilentz,
chief of the prosecution staff at
Hatuptmann's trial in Felmington
more than a year ago, likewise said
he had no comment.
During the Court of Pardons ses-
sion, held in executive session and
marked by the collapse of Prosecutor
Anthony M. Hauck, Jr., it was known
that the disputed kidnap ladder
played an important part in Governor
Hoffman's plea for Hauptmann.
Hcffman, who has declared the
prisoner's trial "reeked with unfair-
ness, passion and prejudice," per-
sonally inspected the floor boards in
the attic of Hauptmann's Bronx home
which allegedly matched one of those
used in making the ladder.
The court listened to arguments by
counsel for four hours and 32 mi-
utes, taking luncheon in the hearing
room. Hauck was temporarily over-
come by excitement and strain, but
was able to return to the chamber
after a brief rest.

U. S. Bureau Of Mines
Building Hit By Fire


PITTSBURGH, March 30.-(P)
-Fire destroyed a storage build-
ing at the rear of the United
States Bureau of Mines tonight,
causing a series of explosions of
poisonous gases and chemicals.
Officials said no one was be-
lieved to be in the building but
firemen reported it burned so
fast they could not be sure. They
planned to search the ruins when
they cooled.
The Bureau of Mines kept sup-
plies of chlorine and hydrogen
sulphide and other chemicals
used in its experiments in the
storage place.

Describes Plants Of Ford
Motor Co. And Detroit
Edison System
(This is the second of a series of ar-
ticles on the Huron River valley. writ-
ten by members of the University fac-
ulty for a guide booklet to the Huron
River.aOther articles will appear at a
later date.)
The first water power plant of im-
portance on the Huron is at Barton
about a mile above Ann Arbor. Be-
tween the Barton Pond and Lake Erie
there is a total fall of about 225 feet,
and of this, 155 feet is being used in
eight hydro-electric power stations.
Six of these stations are operated by
the Detroit Edison Company, and
two by the Ford Motor Company.
The total capacity of the Edison
plants is about 8500 kilowatts and
the Ford plants, 3000 kilowatts.
The flow of the Huron River is
most variable. There have been dis-
charge records taken in the vicinity
of Ann Arbor for nearly 30 years, the
average for the period being about
400 cubic feet per second. The maxi-
mum recorded flow, which occurred
during the spring of 1918, was ap-
proximately 8,000 cubic feet per sec-
ond and the ordinary minimum flow
which occurs during the dry summer
months is less than 100 cubic feet per
second. The ratio of maximum to
minimum is therefore approximately
100 to 1. Since the power output
of a stream is dependent upon the
supply of water, it can be seen that
the power generated on the river is
highly variable. The plants general-
ly have capacities to take care of
flows of 500 to 1000 cubic feet per
second, the tendency being to provide
for greater use of water in the newer
plants. It is thus necessary to waste
considerable surplus water during the
higher stages of the river, and dur-
ing the lower stages there is not
nearly enough water to operate the
full capacity of the plants.
During the dry months water is al-
lowed to collect in the ponds in the
early portion of the day, and is used
in the afternoon when the demand
for power is greatest. Usually the
plants upstream use the water first,
and then successively those next be-
low, until the water has passed
through all of the turbines. It is only
during a very small part of the year
when discharge is at a maximum that
the plants can operate at anything
like full capacity. During the re-
S.C.A. Subject
To Be Student
Personality adjustments on the
campus will be the topic of discus-
sion at the second general meeting
of the Student Christian Association
at 8 p.m. tomorrow in Lane Hall, ac-
cording to announcement made yes-
terday by Richard S. Clark, secretary.
Several members of the mental hy-
giene department of the University
Hospital are expected to be present
as guests. No formal speeches are
scheduled for the meeting. Patricia
Woodward, chairman of the assemb-
ly, said, but a round table discussion
will be the order of the occasion.
Analysis of the adjustment prob-
lem will come under scrutiny, along
with "what should student organi-
zations do in regard to the prob-
lem?" Student apathy, "spreading
thin," and the question of getting
at the unadjusted student will be
This meeting, to which all students
interested in the subject or in the

mainder of the year a large part of
the capacity must remain idle.
The water power developed by the
Detroit Edison Company is intercon-
nected with their steam plants at De-
troit and Port Huron. The water
power plants are useful in regulating
local voltage; but improvements in
the efficiency of steam power produc-
tionshas been so great during recent
year-s that it is impossible for snal
water power development to produce
power as cheaply as it can be gen-
erated in the best steam plants. Water
power does, however, add flexibility to
a combined system and aids in taking
care of peak loads. These advantages
often make it desirable to have a cer-
tain amount of water power connect-
ed to steam plants.
Interconnected with the Detroit
Edison system are the plants of the
Ford Motor Company, the Consum-
ers Power Company, and the steam
power plant of the University of Mich-
igan. There is continually going on
an iterchange of power between
these various systems.
Of the total power consumed by
Ann Arbor during 1925 only 20 per
cent was supplied by the Argo and
Barton Dams, the two plants nearest
the city. The demand load at Ann
Arbor is about 8,000 kilowatts, three
times the maximum capacity of these
two plants. It is thus seen how de-
pendent this community is on the
Detroit steam plants and how- rela-
tively unimportant the water power
of the Huron River really is.
Thefts Of $100
Reported By 4
Chapters Here
Four fraternity houses located at
the outer end of Washtenaw Avenue
yesterday reported to police the theft
of about $100 total in cash, making a
total of six houses enteed in the past
week, all but one of them on Wash-
The houses entered were Phi Sig-
ma Delta, 1811 Washtenaw, where
between $50 and $75 was taken; Tri-
gon, 1617 Washtenaw, where about
$20 was taken; and Sigma Phi
Epsilon, 1805 Washtenaw, and Zeta
Beta Tau, 2006 Washtenaw, both re-
porting thefts of about $10.
A valuable wrist watch was re-
ported taken from Zeta Beta Tan,
while a Trigon member reported the
loss of a white silk scarf.
Last week theives obtained about
$150 in cash from two houses, Theta
Chi and Alpha Tau Omega, in the
same night.
The police department wa-ned fa-
ternitics that only locked doors
would stop the fraternity house raid-
ers. The two scout cars patrolling
the city at night cannot spend all
their time in the fraternity district,
and once the thieves have departed
with cash and jewelry, only a com-
plete absence of clues remains to
confront investigating officers.

with Miss Windwood in her original
role of Liz, will follow the production
of "Hamlet,"
Margola Gillmore, noted Theatre
Guild Star, will play the younger
sister in "The Distaff Side." Miss
Gillmore, the daughter of Frank
Gillmore, president of the Actors'
Equity Association, has scored a suc-
cess recently as the youngest sister
in "The Barretts of Wimpole Street,"
and "Flowers of the Forest," both
with Katharine Cornell.
The fifth play on the schedule will
be the current Broadway success,
"Parnell," with Miss Gillmore as the
heroine, Kaite O'Shea, for whose sake
the great Irish leader gave up his po-
litical carter and delayed the cause
of Irish freedom for three genera-
tions. Effie Shannon will be fea-
tured in the role of Aunt Ben, in
which she was starred in the New
York production.
The last play will be "Night of
January 16," which had the longest
run of any play on Broadway this
year. As in the case of "Libel," this
play will be given in Ann Arbor be-
fore any other city outside of New
York, special arrangements having
been made with its New York pro-
ducer, A. H. Woods. This play re-
volves around a murder trial, and the
unusual feature of its solution is that
the jury is picked from members of
the audience at each performance,
giving the play a different ending
each night according to the jury's de-
cision of "guilty" or "not guilty."
