corrected herself: "I mean hammer.
I didn't know, then, that the ham-
mer had anything to do with making,
a gun fire easily."
Mrs. Baker, who for 12 years di-
rected student help at Helen New-
berry Residence, told how she met
Mr. Baker in 1928 and Schneider in
1929. "Al brought home a bowling
team of which he and Cub were
members," she said, "and both he
and Al drove taxicabs for the same
company at that time."
Tells Of Love
In response to her counsel's ques-
tioning, she told how her husband in-
vited Schneider to live at their home
in July, 1935, "because he felt sorry
for Cub, who stayed in an attic room
so hot he couldn't sleep. He moved
his clothing in in September, paying
no room rent at my husband's sug-
gestion and mine."
When, in the fall of 1930, Schnei-
der first told her he loved her, Mrs.
Baker said she told him he was "just
a child." Schneider was then 18 and
Mrs. Baker 24.
Mrs. Baker testified that it was
a year after meeting Schneider that
she first had sexual relations with
him, and that they continued until
the time she killed him June 29, 1936.
"He persisted in his love for me," she
said, "and I loved him. When I
thought he didn't love me, my world
was completely shattered."
Couldn't Tell Al
"And all this time you were a mar-
ried woman." Prosecutor Rapp hurled
the question at her.
"Yes," she answered in a low voice.
Mrs. Baker explained that Schnei-
der constantly urged her to marry
him and ask her husband for a di-
vorce. Once, she said, she made up
her mind to do it, "But when I saw
how sad Al looked, I just couldn't
do it. I just couldn't, that's all."
She and Schneider made many
trips away from Ann Arbor together,
most of which Patrolman Baker
knew of, she testified. Later she told
how she tried to "keep away from
Cub by getting him dates with other
wonien, but he refused to go unless
I went along."
"You didn't love your husband,"
Prosecutor Rapp stated more than
Loved The Both
"Yes, I dlid," she returned evenly.
"But he just couldn't satisfy you,
is that it, Mrs. aer?"
"I loved them both," she said.
"Oh, you loved them both did
you," the Prosecutor continued. "You
wanted Al Baker to satisfy you fi-
nancially and Schneider to satisfy
"No," Mrs. Baker said.
"Didn't you say your husband was
built like a child and couldn't satisfy
you?" Mr. Rapp pursued his ques-
tioning while a curious courtroom
looked at Patrolman Baker, seated
at the opposite end of the room from
the witness stand
"Yes, I believe I did use that ex-
pression," she answered.
It was at this point that Circuit
Court .Judge George W. Sample ad-
journed the court until 9 a.m. today.

mobiles bought if the strike lasts only
a few weeks (and thus cause more
unemployment than would ordinar-
ily be the case) is difficult to say,"
"I believe this season would be a
very busy one. They (the automo-
bile manufacturers) want to get the
dealers stocked up and sell while the
models are new."
In comparing the Committee for
Industrial Organization's drive to
unionize the mining industry with
the. present strike in Michigan, Pro-
fessor Dickinson expressed the opin-
ion that John L. Lewis, head of the
C.I.O., is meeting much better or-
ganized opposition than he did in
the mining industry.

The proposals of the Michigan
Welfare and Relief Study Commis-
sion, which call for the creation of
three new welfare relief, mental hy-
giene and correction departments to
take the place of 10 now existing
State agencies, were enumerated in
length by the Governor and recom-
mended for study. Besides Mr. Smith,
who is also director of the Michigan
Municipal League, other faculty
members on this commission are Pro-
fessor Haber and Prof. Arthur Dun-
ham of the history department.
As reported in The Daily yesterday,
the welfare commission is scheduled
to meet in Lansing today to draft
appropriate legislation embodying the
proposals of this report for submis-
sion to the Legislature in the near
In discussing the Unemployment
Insurance Bill, one of the principal
provisions which the Governor point-
ed out as needing change was that
which exempts from taxation during
1937 and thereafter the first $6,000 of
wages paid annually by each employ-
er subject to the act. He explained
that "No such exemption is permit-
ted by the Federal act, and the re-
sulting, loss of revenue to the state
unemployment fund will be about
$1,000,000 in 1937 and approximately
$1,500,000 in 1938 and subsequent
years, unless those employers of eight
or more persons who are subject to
the Federal tax should voluntarily
waive the exemption in order to ben-
efit the State fund and claim a cor-
responding credit on their Federal
Also approximately 200,000 workers
belonging to small concerns who
would otherwise come under this act
are ineligible according to this pro-
vision, Governor Murphy further ex-
plained, and he added that in the
financing of benefits, the exemption
will cause the act to work unfairly.
In the case of an employer whose
annual payroll is $7,000, he said,
"With an exemption of $6,000, only
a small fraction of his total payroll
will be taxed, merely one-seventh.
But all his employes will be eligible
for benefits. Obviously this concern
is not carrying its just share of the
In case the Supreme Court should
declare the Federal Social Security
Act unconstitutional, Governor Mur-
phy advised that the State bill should
not be allowed automatically to be-
come invalid also, as it would under
a provision now in the State act. He
suggested the repeal of this provi-
sion, saying "unemployment compen-
sation is a good thing for Michigan,
regardless of the federal law's fate."

Senator George W. Norris, of Nebraska, instead of attending the
opening session of Congress, assisted i'n inaugurating the Nebraska
unicameral legislature at Lincoln, which he sponsored. He stood with
Lieut.-Gov. Walter Jurgensen (right) on the speaker's stand as the only
law-making body of its kind in the United States undertook its duties.

that swimming is a marvelous exer-
cise when properly utilized, and it is
to be encouraged for those who are
in perfect health. No person with the
symptoms of a cold in the head
should enter the pool, not only be-
cause of the ill effect of undue expo-
sure, but also because of the menace
to other swimmers, he said.
"We should not lose sight of the
fact that the common cold is a fore-
runner of pneumonia and responsi-
ble for more than ninety per cent of
sinus and mastoid infections," Dr.
Certain preventive measures should
be followed, he said. "Prolonged cold
plunges and undue exposure to the
inclement weather should be avoided.
The value of fresh, circulating air in
our living quarters, and daily exercise
out of doors cannot be too greatly
emphasized. Excessively dry, warm
air causes a disturbance of normal
repsiratory function and predisposes
to the development of colds in the
head," he warned.

It has long been a. contention of
many political scientists that two
houses in state legislatures are not
only unnecessary but also harmful
to progressive legislation. They point
out that the national bicameral leg-

states must be represented both as
separate entities and as population
centers, a need which the state does
not now have.

Old-fashioned lamps with.dark
shades and cosed tops focused a
small pool of bright light in one spot
and left the rest of the room in murky
shadow. Even when one sat directly
under the lamp, the sharp contrast be-
tween the light and the surrounding dark-
ness was trying on the eyes. All this has been
changed with the modern new 3-light lamp.
A light shade with a light lining---open
at both top and bottom-throws a great
deal of light into the room. The lamp
has a diffusing bowl under the shade,
which throws part of the light upward to.

spread over a large area, eliminating harsh
shadows and providing roomwide light.
