(From The Associated Press)
The Day In Politics
Michigan Democratic leaders are
gathering in Grand Rapids today for
a two-day pre-convention session to
iron out the problems confronting
them before the mass of delegates
meets Thursday.
Focused about the nominations for
governor and United States Senator,
the discussion will be largely in the
hands of the Young Democrats and
Pdtm ster-General James Farley,
who will attempt to put a Frank
Murphy-James Couzens slate through
for the two offices.
His efforts will be fought from out-
side the, convention by former Gov-
ernorWilliam Comstock, who has de-
nounced Farley's "meddling" and sug-
gests former Republican Lieutenant-
Governor George W. Welsh and Frank
A. Picard, senatorial nominee in
1934 as candidates.
Still a third pair of possible can-
didates are State Treasurer Theodore
I. Fry for governor and Congressman
Prentiss Brown of St. Ignace for sen-
ator, with Comstock also mentioned
for the Senate.
Prof. John H. Muyskens, leader of
insurgent Democrats allied with the
Young Dems in a "fighting front"
against the Old Guard typified by
Comstock and the late Horatio J. Ab-
bott, was already in Grand Rapids last
night pushing the Farley ticket for
exclusive endorsement by the conven-
tion, with the idea up his sleeve, that
if the convention does not agree on
Republican Senator Couzens, Muy-
skens himself has nomination peti-
tions ready to submit.
The Day In Washington
Discussing invalidation of the Guf-
fey Coal Control Act, President Roose-
velt asserted yesterday that efforts
must continue to improve conditions
in the soft coal industry even though
the Guffey Bill which was intended
to reach this objective through agree-
ment between employers and em-
ployes was declared unconstitutional
by the Supreme Court. (See story
on page one).
The House Tax Bill moved forward
in the Senate Finance Committee to
what may be its first "showdown" to-
morrow. While it was still under dis-
cussion in various subcommittees to-
day, the bill was attacked on the floor
by Senator Dickinson of Iowa, a can-
didate for the Republican Presiden-
tial nomination.
Frustration could be read into the
remarks of Dr. F. E. Townsend, co-
founder of the Townsend Old Age
Pension Plan, as he testified before
a special House committee, that the
administration was a "hostile force"3
behind the congressional investigation
of his movement.
Hinting that "clever sabotage" in
his own ranks may have hampered
the PWA's $200,000,000 municipal
power program, Secretary Ickes gave
the history of PWA in four hours ofl
testimony before the District of Co-
umbia Supreme Court.
Secretary Ickes declared in the heat
of a hammering cross-examinationl
that his book, "Back to Work: Thet
Story of PWA," did not give as ac-'

curate picture of the organization. He
also made a categorical denial of the
suggestion that the PWA had at-
tempted to coerce private utility in-
terests by encouraging public owner-
ship of local power plants.

Gracie Shows 'Em Up;
Wins Intelligent Title
HOLLYWOOD, May 19. -- UP) --
Gracie Allen - the professional dum-
bell - was selected by University sof
Southern California psychology stu-
dents today as the screen's most in-
telligent actress.
An elementary class of 80 students
and an advanced section of 40 partici-
pated in the poll. Each group named
the 10 actresses it considered to be
Hollywood's most intelligent women.
The other nine named.were Mary
Pickford, Norma Shearer, Ann Hard-
ing, Irene Dunn, Claudette Colbert,
Grace Moore, Bette Davis, Ruth Chat-
terton and Jeanette MacDonald.
Voting separately, the two groups
saw eye-to-eye on nine selections. The
difference was that the elementary
class put Miss Chatterton in the list
while the advanced group included
Katherine Hepburn on its roster.
But Gracie led both lists.
"Miss Allen is known here as a suc-
cessful home-maker and a shrewd
business woman in addition to the dif-
ficult personality she displays profes-
sionally," said one student's paper.
