The Day In Washington
Predicting that the Republican
nominee for the presidency of the
United States would be the "governor
of a typical prairie state," Postmaster
General James A. Farley, speaking
before the state Democratic conven-
tion, said he would not interfere to
.any great extent in the Michigan po-
litical battle.
Farley did not mention his "prob-
able" nominee by name, but it was be-
lieved that he was probably referring
to Gov. Alf M. Landon, the only mid-
western state executive now promi-
nent in the Republican race for the
The postmaster-general asserted
that the election of his unmentioned
nominee would prove a "perilous ex-
In another section of his speech,
Farley lashed out at the alleged "re-
form" in leadership within the party
when he said "Do you believe the
fairy story that the Republican party
is being, reorganized? You know how
the Republican party is being fi-
nanced during the present campaign.
Does it seem likely to you that the
Dupont Liberty League, that collection
of multi-millionaires and their satel-
lite lawyers and paid propagandists,
is going to back any program that
would run counter to their own in-
terests, habits and special privileges?"
The present state Democratic con-
cention has attracted nationwide at-
tention as far as the field of politics
is concerned. Next week the Illinois
Republican convention will occupy the
center of the political stage.
-A erack at big business was added
to the convention when Mrs. Emma
Guffey ,Miller said big business
"begged Franklin Roosevelt to save
their banks and their businesses and
he did - and for a few months they
would have crowned him''king'" . .
Now these great industrialists have
-turned upon him.
The Day In Politics

Elderly Townsend, with his vast or-

questions on.seeming fallacies in the
plan, its champion snapped, with a
snort of disgust, "why all this non-
A White House conference held last
night between President Roosevelt
and a group of liberal senators from
four parties set the capital aglow with
political speculations and rumors.
Regular democratic leaders were
not informed about the meeting and
a belief persisted that the conference
was called for something other than
pending legislation, for heretofore

conferences have included only dem-

Free Two, Hold
One I eBankin
Lord And Walsh Released;
Wilkinis To Face Federal
Trial In Flint Case
DETROIT, May 20. -- UP) - Two
former Detroit bankers, Robert O.
Lord and James W. Walsh, were freed
today from banking law charges in
the Flint bank case, but Judge Patrick
T. Stone ordered the third defendant,
Herbert R. Wilkin, to remain on trial
in Federal court.
When Prosecutor Guy K. Bard rest-
ed his case at noon, Judge Stone dis-
missed the charges against Lord and
Walsh, holding that evidence pre-
sented against them was "insuffi-
The trio had been indicted on three
counts charging false entry, false
report and conspiracy. The govern-
ment charged that $600,000 in bills
payable was eliminated illegally from
a report to the Federal Reserve board
as to the condition of the Union In-
dustrial Trust & Savings Bank of Flint
on Dec. 31, 1931.
Wilkin formerly was vice-president
and cashier of the bank, a unit of the
Guardian Detroit Union Group, Inc.
Lord was president of the Guardian
group and Walsh executive vice-pres-
Judge Stone denied a motion for
a directed verdict of acquittal for
Wilkin but dismissed the conspiracy
count against him because Wilkin re-
mained the only defendant.
As the defense opened its case in-
dications were that the trial would
be completed this week.
Judge Stone announced his ruling
releasing Lord and Walsh after re-
fusing for the second time to admit
letters and telegrams dealing with
1930 transactions.
Bard then agreed that there was no
evidence in the record showing an
"overt act" on' the part of Lord or
"I am satisfied," Judge Stone said,
"that the Court of Appeals would not
sustain a verdict of guilty on this
evidence in respect to Walsh and
Statistics Show
Drop In April
Relief Expense
Dwindling direct relief rolls in
Washtenaw County were reflected in
smaller expenditures in the county
welfare relief administration during
April, according to figures made
public yesterday.
The local units' share of the bill was
cut from $8,948.30 to $7,181.35, with
the number of cases dropping from
819 to 711 and the number of persons
on direct relief falling from 2,189
to 1,775 between March and April.
Ann Arbor was presented with a
bill for $3,323.35 for unemployables
and an additional $982.50 for employ-
ables who have not been taken on by
the WPA. There were 272 cases in
the former category and 102 in the
latter, representing 902 persons.
Division of the case load by units
shows the cities and several townships
carrying a disproportionate number
of relief clients.
Detailed statements sent to each
city or township showed the amounts
spent for food, shelter and other ne-
cessities for each individual case. Over
the county as a whole the largest ex-
penditure was 57.6 per cent of costs for

Jobless Graduates
Almost all the Michigan graduates
between the ages of 25 and 40 who
have been seeking employment
through the University Bureau of Oc-
cupational Information during the
depression years have been placed
in government, business, or teaching
positions in the last few months, ac-
cording to Dr. T. Luther Purdom, di-
rector of the bureau. The number of
placements in all fields, Dr. Purdom
said, show a "tremendous increase"
over last year.
The bureau announced yesterday
that 0. L. Tinklepaugh of the Vick
Chemical Co. of New York and H. W.
Schafer of the B.CD. Office Equip-
mient Co. of Detroit would be at the
University during the week to inter-
view students who are seeking posi-
tions. Other companies will send
representatives to Ann Arbor in the
near future for the same purpose.

Farmer - Labor
Party Formed
In ThisCounty
Official Delegates From
Union Groups Take Step
Toward National Scale
A Farmer-Labor Party for Wash-
tenaw County was organized this week
by 42 official delgates from county
labor unions, farmers' organizations
and civic groups meeting at Labor
Hall, who contended that America is
capable of insuring to the farmer, the
laborer and the pr'ofessional a decent
standard of living, security and free-I
dom, which they say those groups do
not haN.
Maintaining that one per cent of
the population holds 59 per cent of
the nation's wealth and that it is
these interests that dominate the Re-
publican and Democratic Parties, the
Farmer-Labor Party, now organizing
on a national scale, is committed to a
policy of materially improving the lot
of the other 99 per cent.
An organizational committee was
elected and arrangements were made
to send delegates to the state-wide
convention at Owosso next Sunday.
The following principles and de-
mands are part of the platform that
the conference approved:
Social insurance legislation cover-
ing unemployment and sickness and
applying to mothers, widows and the
aged to be paid by government funds
collected from corporate and surplus
wealth. Higher wages for workers,
the six hour day and the 30 hour week.
Governient recognit ion of the right
to organize, to employ collective bar-
gaining, the strike, and the picket.
Relief to impoverished farmers, a
muoratorium on mortgages of poor
farmers, increased farm prices at the
expense of the food and dairy trusts.
Complete freedom of speech, the
press and assembly. Constitutional
amendment givinig Congress powers
to enact all types of social legislation.
Abolition of child labor, free pri-
inary, secondary and college educa-
tion for all. Increased pay and the
right of tenure for teachers. Lawsj
preventing discrimination against 1
Negroes, the persecution, illegal ar-
rests and shooting of Negroes by Po-
lice and a Federal Anti-Lynching law.
Repeal of sales tax laws, graduated
income taxes applying heavily to high
