BOSTON, April 24.- P-)
Agents of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation returned here today
after a mysterious expedition, re-
ported in search of Alvin Karpis,
Public Enemy No. 1.
Seven agents, heavily armed,

gell of the sociology department de-
clared that even if this were so, he
believed Hitler "meant to use the
Heidelberg invitations as propaganda
to gain acceptance for his ideals."
The question of the ousted stu-
dents was brought up when Max
Wonder, '36E, asked Professor Slos-
son for his opinion of the "status of
the case." When Professor Slosson
returned that "communists are use-
ful in the student body," Wonder de-
clared he thought the students were
requested to leave, not because they
were communists but they violated a
University ruling on handbill ped-
The engineering students came in
for their panning when Prof. A. D.
Moore of the electrical engineering
department, head mentor of the en-
gineering college, declared himself
against engineers in government and
said he did not think engineering
students should be expected to be
skilled in the social sciences.
A definite religious angle to many
of the questions, tas urged yesterday
by President Ruthven, was noticeable.
The Rev. Charles W. Brashares and
Prof. Leroy Waterman of the orien-
tal languages and literatures depart-
ment handled most of the religious
discussion, and agreed that "religion
must be social."

staunch Democrat, and Rep. Pren-
tiss M. Brown of St. Ignace.
A Loyal Democrat
Mr. Abbott gained the reputation
in both state and national political
circles as a fighting Democrat who
refused to concede defeat. He was a
regular party man through the days
when the Democratic party in Mich-
igan was struggling to survive at the
turn of the century to the period of
the Roosevelt landslide in 1932. A
member of the State central com-
mittee since 1910, he held various of-
fices in the party and was postmas-
ter here for several years.
When former-Governor William A.
Comstock resigned the chairmanship
of the State central committee in
1924, Mr. Abbott succeeded him, later
following Mr. Comstock as national
committeeman from Michigan in
Friends In Both Parties
Mr. Abbott, always very personable,
had as many Republicans as Demo-
crats among his friends. "Having
so many acquaintances of the op-
posite political faith is sometimes
embarassing," he once remarked.
Mr. Abbott was closely allied with
Comstock throughout the long strug-
gle of the Michigan Democrats, al-
though he was reported to be luke
warm toward the former-governor at
the end of his administration. He ar-
dently supported President Roosevelt,
but although his warm support for
the Democratic party continued, he
rather passively accepted the New
From the time that Postmaster
General James A. Farley took over
the post of patronage distributor ex-
traordinary, almost to the presentI
day, Mr. Abbott was chief Michigan
Democrat. His high opposition as
State representative of the Admin-
istration even overshadowed that of
Comstock when he was governor.
In Patronage Row
But however amicable Mr. Ab-
bott's relations with his political col-
leagues may have been before 1933,
from that date he was a storm cen-I
ter of squabbles, despite the fact he
remained in the saddle. When he
took for himself the choice post of
collector of internal revenue of De-
troit, such a tide of protest surged
up that he was finally forced to drop
it. Charges, very pointed but never
substantiated, were made that mem-
bers of the Abbott staff forced cam-
paign contributions from leading in-
His chief opponents were the
Michigan Democrats in Congress,
who, there being no Democratic sen-
ator from this state, thought they
should have some say in patronage
distribution. And it was charged
that this dissention, in which he was
backed by both Farley and Comstock,
was in large measure responsible for
the Republican victory here in 1934.
During the past six months, Mr. Ab-
bott and Prof. John H. Muyskens of
the speech department became em-
broiled in a political fight. The pro-
fessor announced his candidacy for
the Democratic senatorial nomina-
tion, on an anti-Abbott platform,
and he charged that Abbott deserted
his party in 1934, voting for Gover-
nor Fitzgerald after caipaigning for
Judge Arthur Lacy of Detroit, Dem-
ocratic gubernatorial nominee.

message to Congress concerning the
Guffey Coal Act, in which Congress
was urged to pass the bill "regardless
of its constitutionality" as an illus-
tration of the Administration's un -
democratic disregard for our "con-
stitutional form of government."
In spite of these obstructions, Mr.
Mitchell stated, 14 important acts of
Congress during the Roosevelt regimel
have been declared unconstitutional,
an "all-time high." The fallacy in
these laws, he continued, lies in their
formation on principles of "social wel-
fare" rather than on constitutionality.'
Court Status Proper
"Discontented and chagrined by
these adverse decisions," the admin-
istration has sought "devious meth-
ods" to establish the permanence of
these laws and side-step the Supreme
Court, he said. Included among these
methods, in the opinion of Mr. Mit-
chell, are proposals for "allowing Su-
preme Court minorities to override
majorities" through two-thirds or
three-fourths majority decision re-
quirements, for requiring all tests to
be brought about within six months
of the passage of the acts; and for
limiting the power of lower Federal
None of these methods are likely
to be successful, he believes, for they
are no more than a "tampering" of
our judicial review system, and the
only "forthright, honest way of deal-
ing with the problem" is by con-

This is the Sight Meter,
the clever new instru.
ment that measureslight,
and tells you how much
you need for any task.
STUDYING OR READING under poor light will injure your
eyes. Let us help you preserve your eyesight by sending you
a Sight Meter. By means of the "electric eye," this instrument
measures the amount of light in a room as accurately as a
thermometer measures heat.
Recent surveys show that not one home in ten is lighted
according to the minimum standards necessary to preserve eye-
sight. Poor lighting is responsible to a large degree for the
astounding prevalence of defective eyesight! Four out of ten col-
lege students suffer the handicap of impaired vision. There are
no substitutes for the services of an eyesight specialist, but good
lighting helps to protect eyes, good and bad, young and old.
It will help you to do better work, more easily and quickly.
You can measure your lighting with a Sight Meter. That is
the only way to know definitely whether or not your lighting
is adequate. There is no charge of any kind for Sight Meter
service. Call the Detroit Edison office.
