9.P. Marches On

The Republican party announced
sterday the publication of the first'
a series of "Granitegrams," brief
xmphlets written by "Mark Granite,j
Newton, Pa.," which "in form are
crt talks on the administration from
e proprietor of a country store"
The Young Republicans declared
their magazine, "The Trumpeter,"
gt Democratic "propagandists" were
etting up a verbal plant comparable
the one created in Russia in the
I Bay City, Gov. Frank D. Fitzger-
proposed that "the Alfred P.
ns of America should be given a
cane to serve their country in place
the Dr. Tugwells and the Frank-
rters." He said the G.O.P. would

and that the Republican plat-

Group's Lack Of Motives
IL Spite Of u s Iurge Siz
Is Iluexpla in ble
The Black Legion, terroristic or-
ganization reputedly of national scope,
is a phenomenon beyond psycholog-
ical explanation, Prof. John F. Shep-
ard of the psychology department
said yester'day.
"Until a motive that will bear sound
I reasoning is suggested," he said, "the
psychologist is at a loss to explain
the movement."
He cited the many instances in his-
tory - and those of today - when
secret societies have existed, but none
that he could recall were as vicious
as the Black Legion,
Most underground organizations
have obvious motives and none of
them are as malicious as the Black
Legion, he pointed out. "The lack
of motive makes the Black Legion
a phenomenon to the psychologist,"
he added.f
He cited the false importance ac-
quired from membership in a- secret
organization as an incidental mo-
tive. A secret olganization tends
to make a meglomaniac of many men,
he said.
"The uniforms of cross-bones and

skulls," he suggested, "would induce
many men to join, of course, just as
the glamour of marching and uni-
flrms induces many to join the army."
There is also the desire, he believed,
in some men to act as supreme arbi-
ters over what is right and wrong,
but cautioned that this too, is only
an incidental motive.
Professor Shepard said that he
could probably explain the organiza-
tion's psychological aspects if it were
of small membership, but that 120,-
000 citizens of the State of Mich-
igan should belong is beyond his un-
Aside from the psychological' as-
pects of the membership of the organ-
ization, he said that if a political.
motive is found to be behind the
movement the liberal cause will be
increased by large numbers.
"There will be a strong reaction
against such terroristic .trong-arm
methods that will swing many per-
sons to the cause of liberalism," Pro-
fessor Shepard said. .
Ford Nets Only
$3,500,000 In
1935 Season
BOSTON, May 25. --iP)-The pri-
vately owned Ford Motor Company
made an indicated profit of $3,565,-
617 in 1935, a balance sheet filed with
Massachusetts tax authorities showed
today. The figure was $3,294,845 low-
er than the company's 1934 profit.
Massachusetts alone among the
states compels the filing of such a
statement, which affords the only
public indication of the profits of the
Detroit company. Statements of the
Canadian Ford Company also are
public record.
The profit figure was indicated in
an increase of $2,701,259 in the profit
and loss surplus account of $582.-
977,651, plus an increase of $864,-
398 in the reser've account, which
stood at $10,961,346 as of Dec. 31 last.
The figures did not indicate any
dividends that may have been paid
to the owners.
The company's profit was equival-
ent to $1.03 a share on the 3452,900
shalres, entirely held by Ford, his wife
and their son Edsel B. Ford.

THE MODERN philosophers'
stone has a good tlouce to it.
No one ever searched for a way to
make gold quite as thoroughly as
men of science in this genera tion
sought for a new source of rubber.
For at timi it looked as though
goIlelrod might turn the trick ...

"DuPrene" is superior to Na-

where this is demonstrated is in use
on machinery-as in the case of
gaskets. iFor many such uses
"DuPrene" has replaced natural
rubber despite its present highercost.
Thus the chemist comes to the
rescue. Not only is it possible for
America to be independent of for-
eign rubber supplies-but (more
