100 Supervisors From;
Counties Move Return
Relief Direction
- - - -


ALBION, Mich., May 20. -() --
One hundred county supervisors from
24 Michigan counties heard Emer-
gency Relief Administration methods
condemned as too costly today, and
moved to ask return of the directioT
of welfare relief to the agencies in
operation before creation of the FE RA
They instructed officers of their
meeting here to forward to every
board of supervisors in the state res-
olutions pledging them to handle re-
lief through the statutory agencies
again, if the state allocates sales tax
revenues now going to the FERA, to
the counties on a case load basis.
The supervisors turned down, how-
ever, a suggestion that a delegation
be sent to confer with Gov. Frank
Fitzgerald on the proposals.
Representatives from Kalamazoo.
Lansing and Muskegon warned
against too drastic action, but super-
visors from less populous districts
urged steps to strip the FERA of all
its functions.
William J. Thomas of Grand Rap-
ids, a county superintendent of the
poor, told the supervisors the $9,000,-
000 being apportioned by the state
would be inadequate to meet the sub-
sidy needs of local funds, because of
the limitations of local tax resources.
He estimated $15,000,000 additional
would be needed.
Officers of the meeting were Mayor
Norman H. Wiener of Albion, chair-
man; Mayor Richard L. Cook of
Grand Haven, secretary, and Mayor
W. W. Richards of Muskegon, chair-
man of the resolutions committee.
Those present included supervisors
from Macomb, Clinton, St. Joseph,
Lapeer, Ottawa, Washtenaw, Ionia,
Cass, Muskegon, Grand Traverse, Ber-
rien, Van Buren, Branch, Barry, Jack-
son, Calhoun, Monroe, Ingham, Shia-
wassee, Saginaw, Genesee, Kalamazoo,
Wayne and Kent counties.
France Moves
For Settlement
Of Italy's Case
PARIS, May 20. - (P) - France,
informed persons said tonight, will
ask Great Britain to take a definite
stand in the Italo-Ethiopian situation,
in order to prevent further postpone-
merit of action at the meeting of the
League of Nations Council June 16.
Leon Blum, generally expected to
be France's next premier when the
Socialist regime takes office June 1,
was understood to have asked Premier
Albert Sarraut and Joseph Paul-Bon-
cour, minister of state, to tell Great
Britain that the new French govern-
ment will be determined to settle the
sanctions question.
The three, with Alexis Leger, per-
manent secretary of the French For-
eign Office, discussed France's prob-i
lems at a long session in Blum's apart-

(P) -A District Court jury con-
victed Mrs. Ethel Cook, former Hom-
er, Mich., housewife, tonight of man-
slaughter in connection with the fatal
shooting of her husband, George
Cook, last March.
Mrs. Cook, who had testified that
hr husband abused her and their
two sons, and threatened their lives,
was sentenced to six months im-
The jury of business men and
farmers haddeliberated for more

one of his sons, in front of his home.
There was testimony that he had
been drinking heavily.

Radioactive Matter An I
Actioni01' Cyclotron
"The apparent possibility of the use
of neutrons and artificial radioactive
materials in medicine is alluring,"
Prof. Fred Hodges, head of the De-
partment of Roentgenology at the
University Hospital, declared in an
interview yesterday.
He based this forecast upon the use
of high voltage x-rays in the cure of
malignant tumors as employed in
medicine today. Experiments with
animals carried out by Prof. E. 0.
Lawrence, of the University of Cali-
fornia, the inventor of the cyclotron
in conjunction with his brother, Dr.
Lawrence, of Yale University, indicate
that a stream of neutrons may be
even more efficacious than x-rays inI
killing cancer cells, Professor Hodges
"The use of the cyclotron, one of
which is now being constructed by
University physicists, in producing
high speed neutrons, heavy particles
with no charge, has thus opened a
new field of investgiation," he said.
The neutrons which are used for
direct bombardment of cancer cells
are obtained from the cyclotron by
bombarding a beryllium target with
deuterons, heavy hydrogen atoms,
.- A A A % A

which are shot forth from the ap-
paratus. cne iet
Beside exposing cancer cells direct-
ly to neutron rays in an attempt to
control. the stupendous reproduction
late of the primitive cancer cells, one
play also be able to control them by
the use of artificial radioactive ma-
terials, according to Professor Hodges.
Certain materials, including common
salt, when bombarded by projectiles
shot forth from the cyclotron become
temporarily unstable, sending forth
radiations similar to those given off
by radium.
Experiments are now being made,
and University hospital workers will
soon join the field, to discover the
effect upon the normal and cancer
cells of these radioactive materials.
It is quite possible, Professor Hodges
believes, that these experiments may
show these artificial radioactive ma-
terials to be of great benefit in con-
trolling cancer. The great advantage
of using injection of these materials
is that their effect may be felt
throughout the whole body and may
be limited to a short period of time.
Use of such materials as radium
emanations and neutron rays in cur-
ing cancer is based on the fact that
their effect upon the cancer cells is
greater than upon normal cells, Pro-
fessor Hodges asserted. The greater
this margin, he continued, the more
useful the material becomes.
