the letting of contracts and work up-
on highway projects with the intent
of defraud the State of Michigan
from substantial sums of money."
The court had entered upon the
same day an order of suppression
which contended that any public in-
formation concerning the expanded
scope would have "greatly hampered"
the grand jury's task.
Joseph Viviano, 35, former state
liquor store clerk in Detroit, was
bound over for trial in circuit court
on charges of perjury before the
grand jury, and Thomas McMaster,
vice-president and general manager
of the Arrow Distilleries, Inc., Detroit,
was held in the Ingham County jail
at Mason awaiting sentence on a con-
tempt of court charge.
At Viviano's examination before
Judge Carr; Lawrence Horigan, 39,
former manager of the liquor store
in which Viviano was employed, tes-
tified that the latter had sold ten
cases of Scotch whisky and divided
the proceeds with him, paying him
$250 as his share.
A transcript of testimony intro-
duced into the record disclosed that
Viviano had taken a "lie detector"
test and that the state police officer
conducting the test had told Viviano,
"You had lied."
McMaster was convicted of con-
tempt of court by Carr for refusing
to answer questions "which would
not in any way incriminate him" in
the grand jury's probing.

he said, "has dominated the political

For Pan-American Understanding
In announcing the lecture series,
Dr. del Toro said that, "The Speak-
ers, all outstanding graduates of
Latin American universities, are very
well qualified to present to a North
American audience the various mani-
festations of the culture of our sister
"They will bring to our attention
what they consider basic and char-
acteristic of each country and the
general discussions which will follow
each talk should give the audience a
good opportunity to discuss further
any matter presented, or to bring
to the attention of the audience for
discussion any matter related to the
culture of the Latin American na-
tions. A comprehension of Latin
American culture seems to be a prime
necessity in arriving at a permanent
understanding between the United
States and Latin America," he added.
The lecture is open to the public.
City Planning
Elmination of
Traffic Hazard
Recommendations for the elimina-
tion of traffic hazards at the inter-
section of Stadium Boulevard and
Packard, scene of two fatal truck-
auto collisions within 30 days, will
be carried out shortly, pending of-
ficial council approval, Alderman
Maurice F. Doll, chairman of the
council's traffic committee, said yes-
Recommendations were based on a
survey of traffic conditions at the
crossing conducted by the State
Highway Department with the co-
operation of the city police, Doll said.
Among the proposed changes, to go
into effect, pending council legisla-
tion, are a 35 mile-an-hour speed
limit within city limits, pedestrian
and traffic lanes painted on the
highways, and enforcement by uni-
formed city police of traffic ordi-
nances at the crossing, Doll added.
In a meeting Monday night the
council authorized a formal request
for the survey just completed and
asked the ordinance committee to
alter city ordinances to conform with
the proposed 35 mile-an-hour speed
limit on the highway, 10 miles in ex-
cess of the existing limit.
Previous adjustment of the traffic
signal at the intersection extended
the period of the amber- or caution-
light, and hoods were put on the
light, Doll said, to prevent motorists
from anticipating the change and
jumping the light. The 35-mile-an-
hour zone would extend from near
the State Street Bridge to Brockman
Boulevard. Warnings of the ap-
proaching signal wil be placed on
Packard south of the intersection,
Doll added.

Local Events To
Honor Norway
Celebrate Anniversary
Of Constitution Today
Today, the anniversary of the
Norwegian Constitution, which was
drawn up at Eidsvold in 1814, will be
marked by two local events.
According to the "News of Nor-
way," this constitution is based on
French, Spanish, English and Amer-
ican models and "for a period of 126
years it remained unchallenged as
the fundamental law of Norway. Up
to April 9, 1940, the whole Norwegian
legislation and administration were
carried on in strict conformity with
the Eidsvold Constitution."
"No German oppression will ever
be able to alter the fact that the
Norwegians in Norway still consider
it to be the supreme guide for their
political actions," the paper con-
Mrs. Charles E. Koella, Ann Arbor
chairman of the Norwegian Relief
Drive, stated in connection with this
anniversary that she has placed an-
other box for clothing for Norway in
Lane Hall. This box, she said, will

mer and winter clothing and shoes,"
she said, "are badly needed."
She said that the box at the League
will be there until June 1.

number of Norwegian selections in
his carillon concert at noon today,
