Dickiinson Is
Seriously III
Former State Governor
Suffers Heart Attack ;
Condition Improved,
CHARLOTTE, Mich. April 21.-)
-Former Governor Luren D. Dickin-
son, 84-year-old Dean of Michigan
politics, was seriously ill at his farm.
home near here tonight, the victim of
a heart attack, but his personal
physician said he was "better than
holding his own and had rallied from
the situation he was in this morn-
Dr. H. Allen Moyer, who has been
Dickinson's personal physician and
friend for years, said he could better
speculate on "the eventual outcome"
in the morning.
He disclosed Dickinson has suf-
fered for several years from "an or-
ganic" heart condition, although the
doctor had informed members of the
former governor's family of this
weakness when hd discovered it.
Emphatically,-Dr. Moyer said the
heart dttack was not induced by any
over-exertion, pointing out that
Dickinson has been in bed "for the
last five days" nursing a lame back.
Dickinson suffered the attack at
7 a.m. and Moyer said when he ar-
rived at the former governor's farm
home, not far from his own, he found
"no pulse at the wrist" and Dickin-
son in severe pain. He said he ad-
ministered opiates and the pain has
been relieved.
Dickinsondis one of Michigan's
colorful political figures. A show-
man by nature, he employed bizarre
tactics after becoming governor in
March, 1937, to advance the crusade
he couducted since early manhood
against what he termed sin and
"high life practices."
Seven times he had been elected
lieutenant governor of his state,
generally without much campaign-
ing, and during the seventh term
the sudden death of the then Gover-
nor Fitzgerald automatically elevated
him to the executive. chair.

Kelly Will Head Delegation
To Protest Travel Restrictions

LANSING, April 21.- (R)- Gover-'
nor Kelly said today he had arranged
to lead a Michigan delegation to
Washington to confer Tuesday, May,
4, with Joseph B. Eastman, Director
of War Transportation, and seek a
relaxation of federal restrictions on
vacation travel in Michigan. -
Kelly appointed a committee to
prepare an appraisal of Michigan
recreational and transportation prob-
lems to present to Eastman who, he
said, announced he would be "most
happy" to receive the Michigan
He said Michigan wanted the re-
strictions made as liberal as possible
"without interfering with the war
effort," for the benefit of tired work-
ers and the tourist and resort indus-
try, which in recent years has reached
huge proportions.
Kelly said the group would .ask
Eastman to relax an order which for-
bids railroads to run passenger trains
this summer which were not in oper-
ation last Sept. 26.
Railroad officials pointed out to
the governor that their normal aug-
mented summer schedules in Michi-
gan were abandoned by last Sept. 26,
and that summer trains which have

operated for 50 years would not run
this year if the order is not lifted.
W. F. Doyle, Chairman of the
Mackihac Island State Park Com-
mission and of the Recreation Area
Subcommittee of the State Defense
Council, said the order conflicted
with another statement by Eastman
that war workers should be allowed
vacations. The Office of Price Ad-
ministration has banned additional
gasoline allowances for vacations, he
pointed out, so that railroads, busses
and boats must carry the load.
Railroad men told the conference
they expected to be able to carry
about half the passenger loads into
northern Michigan they did last year.
Bus operators said they would trans-
port about the same loads, while
steamboat operators said they could
expand their service little because of
the lack of proper dock facilities.
Lack of vacation facilities will
mean a rise in traffic deaths among
children, John Reid, Secretary of
the Michigan Federation of Labor
predicted. He said thousands of
youngsters who normally spend sum-
mers at northern resorts would be
restricted to a summer on city streets
and "inadequate" playgrounds.

best part of it for a third desperate
attempt to crush Russian resistance
before the western Allies land in
Europe. Diplomats in Switzerland
with Balkan connections say he is

men with an offensive against the
Red Army the first item on the
If this is his plan, it means that
the Fuehrer is taking the gamble
that there will be no major invasion
of the continent until late summer.
He can hardly hope that a few weeks
will suffice to dispose of the Soviet
armies which defeated him so thor-
oughly last winter, wiping out all his
1942 gains and some of those of
1941. But he is confronted by desper-
ate choices. Only by bringing
off some long - chance adven-
ture, bottling up the western
end of the Mediterranean by a
thrust through Spain or a successful
invasion of Britain-can he hope to
alter the trend of the war which isI
turning so inexorably against him.
Preparation for the summer's cli-
mactic battles explains the tawdry
procession of the satellites through
the Fuehrer's headquarters which
apparently is near an end. Boris of
Bulgaria, Mussolini of Italy, Anto-
nescu of Rumania, Horthy of Hun-
gary and Quisling, the Norwegian
who has given the world a synonym
for shame, have received their orders.
The Slovak president and Croatian
puppet are under summons, perhaps
already in Germany. Collaborators
from conquered Greece, the Low
Countries and France may bring up
the rear.
What tasks have been assigned this
sorry company will be disclosed only
as the battle unfolds, but experience
and the logic of his situation must
suggest strongly to Hitler that for
another offensive in Russia he will
have to rely on the flower of his own
German army.
His allies, especially the Italians,
Rumanians and Hungarians, terribly
mauled in the winter campaign, ob-
viously have little stomach for going
through the meat grinder again.
Therefore they may provide-most of
the armies for defense of Europe,'s
southern coasts and suppressing re-
volt in the rear, at least until such
time as the Americans and British
leap the Mediterranean and chal-
lenge Hitler to produce the best he
has to oppose them.
The Russians have no illusions
about the coming summer; they are
preparing for another terrible or-
deal. The western Allies are antici-
pgting it also; aid to Russia in the
form of weapons and supplies will
form a major part of their war ef-
fort even while they are straining
with every resource to produce the
only form of help that will really
satisfy the Russians or themselves,
the second front in Europe.
