(Copyright, 1936, by the Associated Press')
WASHINGTON, May 18. - The
Supreme Court today ripped from the
statute books the Guffey Act intended
to regulate wages and hours and fix
prices in the soft coal industry, but a
few hours later authoritative sources
disclosed that new legislation was
being drafted to replace it.
Highly authoritative sources re-
vealed that representatives of the Na-!

the Justice Department, operators

ers set to work tonight on the task
of shaping new legislation for im-
mediate introduction in Congress.
Whether their activitiesultimately
would be given White House approv-
als was not known.
Although the exact scope of the
new measure has not been determ-

be its basis.
This approach was taken, it was
said, because the court's majority

Woman's Rescuer
Little Appreciated
By Sullen Escort
Yesterday, while strolling along the
river near Barton Hills, a Daily re-
porter witnessed an unusual incident.J
A young man was seen to dash into
the water, apparently to rescue a man
and a woman who were floundering in
the middle of the river, alongside an
upturned canoe. Despite the fact
that the woman could not swim, her
escort started toward the shore, leav-
ing the woman helpless. However,
the third figure in this episode
reached the woman just in time, and
dragged her and the canoe safely to
Once ashore, the lady's gentleman
friend was nowhere to be found. After
being profusely thanked by the wom-
an, and after seeing that she was
properly taken care of, the rescuer
paddled the, canoe down the river
back to the dock. Here he found his
friend of half an hour ago, insisting
that he be returned his $2 deposit on
the canoe.
Upon being informed that the canoe
was now safe in the haven, the dock
man refunded the $2 to the gentle-
man. The latter took his money,
and without even a nod of apprecia-
tion toward his benefactor, stalked

CHICAGO, May 18.- (/P) -Stubby
Charles (Chuck) Kocsis and his Mich-

distance of their fifth consecutive
Western Conference individual and
team golf championship.
Kocsis, shooting in quest of the title
his famous teammate, Johnny Fischer,
snatched from him in a steaniing
battle over the same layout a year
ago, led the Michigan march, but
close behind him was another Wolver-
ine, Woody Malloy. Just a little far-
ther back in third place came a third
Michigan stalwart, Allen Saunders,
with the fourth member of the power-
ful squad, Bill Barclay, in a tie for
fifth position.
The head man of the Michigan raid
was hotter than a firecracker in the
morning round, sprinkling his round
with six birdies to finish with a spar,
kling 66, four under par. He was
somewhat more moderate in the after-
noon, shooting a 73, for a 36 hole
total of 139. Malloy added a 72 to
his par 70 or the morning for 142.
Saunders finished the day with 71 in
the morning and 77 after lunch for

(Pick) Wagner of Northwestern and
Tom Connor of Wisconsin at 150.
Wilbur Kokes, Illinois' number one
man, was in sole possession of fourth
place by his 71-78--149.
The Wolverines led the team parade
by a margin of 33 strokes over North-
western, which rallied in the after-
noon to take second place away from
Illinois, 579 strokes to 612. Illinois
slipped to third with 622. Following
in order were: Minnesota 627, Wis-

DETROIT, May 18.-(AP)-Former
Gov. William A. Comstock said today
he would lead a primary election fight

if James A. Farley attempts to force
Michigan Democrats to accept a

Comstock said that there was a re-

Frank Murphy for Governor and Re-

the Democratic senatorial nomina-
"If any attempt is made to keep
the ticket blank for United States

Padgett Files
Alibi In Stang
Murder Case
Pinning his hopes for acquittal on
a claim that he was in Baltimore, Md.,
on the day in question, William H.
Padgett, 34, of Sumter, N. C., waited
n jail-here for his trial on the charge
of murdering Patrolman Clifford A.
Stang in a clothing store hold-up

Formal notice of alibi was sent
Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp and filed
in the county clerk's office yesterday
morning by Arthur C. Lehman, ap-
pointed by Circuit Judge George W.
Sample as counsel for Padgett.
According to the notice, evidence
would be offered to show that "on or
about March 21" Badgett was in
Baltimore in the company of relatives
of his and residents of that city. The
prisoner had previously stated that
he did not know whether he was in
Ohio, West Virginia or Baltimore on
the date of the slaying.
Leaving probably later in the week,
Prosecutor Rapp said he would go to
Baltimore to secure depositions, if
possible, from the relatives Padgett
stated he had been with.

Demoeratized Music Is Goal
Of Distinuished Bandmaster

If the "Fighting Hundred" isn't al-
ready the best school band in the
country, it soon will be, in the opinion
of America's most distinguished band
conductor, Edwin Franko Goldman.
The reason, says Mr. Goldman, is
William D. Revelli, the University's
new band director. Michigan is for-
tunate, he says, in having a "second
Toscanini" to build, with the support
of the University, a band worthy of a
great institution. In short, Mr. Revel-
li is "the best school band conductor
i the country." He not only teaches
students to play instruments, but he
has "something here" (gesture in the
direction of the chest).
Mr. Goldman stopped off in Ann
Arbor to lecture to the band yester-
day afternoon. Last night he board-
ed a plane in Detroit and flew toNew
York on the last lap of a trip about
the continent.
Music, says the man who has done
more to bring good music within the
reach of everyone through his free
I dail y'concrts in the summer "on the

25,000 to 75,000, and have never yet

"What do people like best? Pro-
grams dedicated to single aspects of
masterpieces - as an all-Russian
program, an all-Tschaikowsky pro-
gram, or even an all-Bach program -
draw the biggest crowds. Our audi-
ences are perhaps the most cosmo-
politan in the world; they include all
the income brackets, and many who
can scarcely speak English, but they
all respond to the universal language
of music -good music."
Mr. Goldman, now 58 years old, has
gray hairand young ideas.He is
known for having introduced the
presentation of symphony musicby
all-wind bands. Since 1918, he has
been presenting his famous Goldman
Band Free Summer Concerts, sup-
ported by the Guggenheim Founda-
tion. More than 50 marches and
band compositions are down in the
