Former Lt.
Sigler Claims
Several $1,000
Changed Hands
Conspiracy Warrant
Also Involves Two
Detroit Liquor Firms
By The Associated Press>
LANSING, June 3.-Former Lieu-
tenant Governor Frank Murphy was






by Grand Jury

accused in a grand jury warrant is-
sued today of betraying public trust
as president of the Michigan Senate
in 1941 by conspiring with officials of,
two distilleries operating in the state'
to corrupt the legislature.
(Murphy is not related to former
Governor Frank Murphy, now a
Justice of the Supreme Court of the
United States.)
Circuit Judge Leland W. Carr,
whose one-man grand jury is probing
charges of graft in state government,
issued the blanket conspiracy war-
rant, naming as defendants Murphy,'
the Mohawk Liquor Corporation of
Detroit, EmYanuel M. R osenthal, its
president, and Charles Layton, its
sales manager; the Arrow Liquor
Corporation of Detroit, Abe H. Weins-
.stein, its president, and Samuel
Schreirer, its secretary and treasurer.
All are from Detroit.
Special Prosecutor Kim Sigler
asserted the warrant was based on
evidence that "several thousand
dollars" had been paid as bribes to
influence the fate of a bill adopted
by the legislature reducing the
license fee on Michigan distilleries
from $5,000 a year to $1,000.
Like in two previous conspiracy
warrants, this one gave no details of
the alleged transaction so flatly, it
accused the companies and their four
named officers of giving bribes, and
Murphy of being both a taker and
dispenser of bribes but did not dis-
close mechanics of the asserted deals.
Sigler said the defendants would
be arrested Monday and brought here
for arraignment.

One Navy Plane Hits Three
ap S

WASHINGTON, June 3.- (/)-
Staging a single-handed attack on
once-feared Truk Island in the South
Pacific, a Navy search plane sank or
damaged three Japanese ,vessels,
strafed a number of others, poured
bombs and bullets onto airplane run-
ways, ignited supply dumps and re-
turned to its base.
The Navy told today of the raid
carried out Thursday night in which
the plane hit almost at will around
the one-time powerful Japanese base.
Straddles Cargo Vessel
It straddled a medium cargo vessel
with 1,000-pound bombs and laid two
others of the same size directly on
her decks. She "was believed sunk,"
the Navy said.
Then the plane strafed "a number
of small cargo vessels" roared over
the seaplane base on Dublon and the
air strips on Eten Islands in the Truk
Ships Set Afire
Two small vessels struck by the
pounding plane were set on fire. Oth-
er fires were started on Dublon and

Ete_ Island. An ammunition dump
was blown u .
Finished with her attack, the
search plane turned back toward its
base. A single enemy plane was in
the air but made no attempt to attack
the raiding American ship.
The Navy also told of three more
attacks by bombing planes upon en-
emy bases in the north Pacific Kurile
Islands. The planes hit Shimushiri
before dawn Thursday without oppo-
At the northern end of the chain,
other planes meantime bombed Para-
mushiro and Shumushu, starting fires

lb use Restr icts
WASHINGTON, J u n e 3-((P))-
The House tentatively wrote into the
$3,920,070,000 lend lease-UNRRA ap-
propriation bill today a ban against
use of any Lend-Lease funds for
"any nation whose troops have not
been engaged in actual battle parti-
cipation in the present war."
The ban was contained in an
amendment offered by Representa-
tive Calvin Johnson (R-Ill.), who
said it was aimed at the expendi-
ture of United States funds on some
South American republics who, al-
though they have declared war
against the Axis, have furnished no
troops for actual fighting.
It was adopted by a teller vote of
32 to 14.

Dem's To Watch
Convention Vote
In 1MIississippai
y The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June ,3.-Demo-
cratic leaders will watch Mississippi
next week for a barometric reading
on the spread of a cotton belt politi-
cal revolt that has raised some seri-
ous doubts about the South's solidity
in the November presidential elec-
With an anti-administration fac-
tion apparently in control, Missis-
sippi's Democrats meet Wednesday to
name a 20-vote degelation to the na-
tional convention. If some leaders
have their way, it will go uninstruct-
ed on the fourth term question and
bearing a "white supremacy" ban-
Whether Mississippi will follow the
pattern set by Texas and South Car-
olina of leaving open the course to be
followed by their Democratic presi-
dential electors was a question that
apparently could only be answered
by the convention's action.
However, both advocates and op-
ponents of a fourth term said there
was little doubt that the convention
would condemn congressional at-
tempts to repeal the poll tax.
Some sought to have it inveigh
against the Supreme Court decision
upholding the right of Negroes to
vote in Texas Democratic primaries
and there was talk even of an at-
tempt to put the convention on rec-
ord against renomination of Henry
A. Wallace for Vice-President.
