The Black Legion
Reaches Grand Rapids
Grand Rapids yesterday befame the
most recent city in the limelight of
Black Legion investigations, with
Prosecutor Bartel J. Jonkman plan-
ning to reopen his investigation of
the strange death of Cornelius Van-
derveen on Christmas Day of 1934,
to deternline whether he might have
been the victim of a Black Legion
Vanderveen was found dead in his
home, horribly burned from the waist
down, and while it was suggested that
his death might have been a ritualistic
murder, an unsatisfactory verdict of
acciental death was finally arrived
Evidence pointed to the fact that
the victim had been burned in the
nude, and then carefull dressed after
his death, and Coroner Harmon C.
Wolfe suggested that the agony of
the first and second degree burns
Vanderveen sucered would have pre-
vented him from dressing himself in
the socks, underwear, and two pairs
of trousers the body wore when found.
The prosecutor said he might ask
permission from East Lansing to ques-
tion witnesses with the aid of a lie
Meanwhile Congressional leaders
planned to add to their already
overburdened list .of investigations a
joint probe of the Legion, announcing
that they would take steps to set
up an investigating committee early
next week.

Average Of 'C'
Will Be Asked
In Engineering
New Requirement Applies
Especially In Chemical
Engineering Department
In view of the increased technical
requirements of the engineering pro-
fession, the faculty of the engineer-
ing college in a meeting Wednesday
decided to insist upon the mainten-
ance of an average grade of "C" in
scholastic work.
This applies particularly in chemi-
cal engineering where the perform-
ance in courses is closely related to
the actual work in the industry.
According to Dean A. H. Lovell "the
delinquency committee has been len-
ient toward the backward student
during the depression because no job
was available in industry if he were
sent from college, and he could make
some progress in his studies.
"Now that technical employment
is available in good measure, the com-
mittee will return to its customary
standards and bear down heavily on
students whose performance is be-
low standard."
Prof. B. F. Bailey, head of the de-
partment of electrical engineering,
was elected a member of the Uni-
versity Council at the meeting to
represent the engineering school un-
til 1940, replacing Prof. A. H. White
of the chemical engineering depart-
ment, whose term expires this year.
The faculty approved the establish-
ment of a cooperative course between
the department of mechanical en-
gineering and the Detroit Edison Co.,
a similar arrangement having exist-
ed for eight years with the electrical
engineering department under the
administration of Prof. S. S. Atwood.
Oliver B. Bowen of Los Angeles, a
civil engineer and a former student
in engineering here, was granted the
degree of B. S. in Civil Engineering
as of his class of 1911.
Civil Service Has
Political Backing
LANSING, May 29. - (P) -A state-
ment from Dr. James K. Pollock,
chairman of the State Civil Service
Study Commission, indicated today
the commission has the support of
"In giving jobs to a few and deny-
ing them to many, the politicians
create more enemies than friends
and say that as a result the spoils
system costs them votes," explained
The commission chairman declared
state employes favor the merit system
because it will add security to their

Sox Fly As Hopwood
Winner Forgets Vow
To Change Old Sox
Arthur A. Miller, recipient of a
minor Hopwood award for drama, is
also the proud possessor of a new
pair of socks.
When he began to write his prize-
winning play, Miller vowed not to
change his socks until the awards
had been made. But upon receiving
the glad tidings, he completely for-
got his pledge.
A coterie of his friends, headed by
his frantic roommate, immediately
repaired to the nearest haberdashery
and purchased a pair of gaudy hose,
upon which were inscribed the fol-
lowing quotation: "Yours, till the
major Hopwoods." From the latest
reports, his roommate has moved
back into the room.

for study. The solidified remnants
of violent prehistoric volcanic activity,
in the form of dikes and plugs, will'
be examined for foreign fragments.
These, it is hoped, may shed some
light on minerals lying far beneath
the surface of.the earth.
In the field of archeology the an-r
cient Indians of the region will form
a subject of investigation. From one
burial cave of the earliest known
group, the Basket Makers, has al-
ready been taken every type of relic
ever found associated with that cul-
ture. Further search of the Black
Mesa, south of the present operations,
may disclose a "missing link" bridg-
ing a gap of three centuries in the
history of the Pueblo Indians and
their descendants, the Hopis.
Ethnologists interested in the ;od-
ern native of the Southwest propose
to record by picture and notes the
peculiar customs of the Navajos,
Hopis, Paiutes and other inhabitants
of the area. The ability which the
more sedentary tribes have displayed
in supporting themselves from crops
grown under such unfavorable con-
ditions will also be studied, according
to present plans.
Obviously, Dr. Gpthe added after
presenting this outline of the expedi-
tion's plans, there is more than a
plentiful amount of work to be done.

Passamaquoddy Again
The ugly spectres of the Passama-
quoddy tide harnessing project and
the Florida Ship Canal reared up
again in the Senate yesterday, as ad-
ministration efforts to change those
presidential projects into Congres-
sional appropriations blocked im-
mediate approval of the first de-
ficiency bill for relief, currently set
at $2,370,000,000 and gave omen of a
heated fight over the two orphanned
projects today.
New Deal spokesman tried to in-
ject into the deficiency bill an amend-
ment which would authorize new al-
locations to the projects if they were
approved by boards of engineers, ap-
pointed to study them by none other
than President Roosevelt. Senator
Vandenberg of Michigan as usual led
the fight against the amendment, say-
ing that it would obligate the govern-
,ment to continue the projects for a
year if the engineers approved them,
an "absurd" arrangement unelss
Congress was "ready to see them
through completely."
Senators Add
One Per Cent
Boost To Tax


Finance Committee Raises
Rate On Incomes From
$6,000 To $50,000
WASHINGTON, May 29.-( P)-De-
ciding suddenly on a one per cent
boost in the rate on all individual in-
come surtax brackets between $6,000
and $50,000, the Senate Finance
committee today wrote this increase
into its drastic revision of the House
tax bill and sent the battle-scarred
measure to the Senate.
As it emerged from weeks in com-
mittee, the revenue program carried
only fragments of President Roose-
velt's original tax suggestions. It
ignored the chief executive's newly
reiterated proposal for steep levies on
undistributed corporation profits.
Acting Chairman King (Dem.,
Utah) reported to newsmen that the
committee had voted down by a 13
to 5 margin a final attempt by Sen-
ator 'Black (Dem., Ala.) to swerve it
over toward the higher undivided
corporate profits tax recommended
by the President.
Immediately, thereafter the com-
mittee ratified an agreement on the
much revised compromise, on which
the chief executive frowned at a'
Tuesday night conference with Demo-
cratic committeemen.
The committee's action served to
transfer the conflict over the bill to
the Senate floor. Leaders planned to
start it through a crossfire of debate
early next week. But with some Sen-
ators already serving notice that they
