Art Removed
To Make Room
For Delegates
Workers Are Seeking
Space for Paintings
By The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO, April 2-Evict-
ing a museum to make way for the
World Security Conference, even with
the gracious consent of all concerned,
is not a simple matter, State Depart-
ment representatives are finding out.
The San Francisco Museum of Art
normally occupies the entire top floor,
and much other space besides, in the
Veterans Memorial building which is
to be the conference headquarters.
The spacious, skylighted galleries are
already stripped of most of their ex-
hibits, and carpenters are at work
building partitions to increase the
number of rooms. The State Depart-
ment administrative office for the
conference are to be there, under the
present plan.
Space at a Premium
But storage space of anything is at
a premium in this principal embarka-
tion port of the west coast, and be-
sides, valuable pictures and sculp-
ture can't be stowed away like cord-
wood. Oil paintings must be hung
o nracks so they can breathe, for in-
stances, or their surfaces will become
clouded with a growth that thrives
on dead air. So, much as the confer-
ence needs every square inch of space
in the big building, State Department
planners now have designated part
of the basement for the museum.
There will be about $1,000,000 worth
of art beneath the conference par-
leys, and there will be special guards
for it, in addition to the regular
security men for the conference.
Temporary Quarters
A more pressing problem was the
finding of temporary quarters, for
the museum, which specializes in
modern art, has an average monthly
attendance of 10,000, exhibits nearly
4,000 items a year and conducts mo-
bile exhibits to small towns. The in-
stitution is privately supported for
public benefit and conditions of its
very existence require that it re-
main open all the time.
Quarters Found
Miss Grace L. Morley, museum di-
rector, says quarters have been found,
but the museum staff can't move into
them until financial arrangements
are completedand the State Depart-
ment has to clear through Washing-
ton on such a matter, which takes
"lyuch as they'd like to be rid of
us," she said with a smile, they know
it really depends on them. I'm let-
ting them do the worrying.
Meanwhile, the museum offices re-
main open and Miss Morley threads
her way among carpenters and tele-
phone men- to direct art storage and
attend to regular business.

LANSING, April 2-Declaring he
wanted to open broader fields of in-
vestigation for the Carr Grand Jury,
Rep. Elton R. Eaton, Plymouth Re-
publican, announced today he has
drafted a bill to allow investigation
of graft in legislatures as long ago
as 1933.
Eaton said his bill would change
the Statute of Limitations from six
years to 12 years. The Statute of
Limitations fixes the time within
which the law must move to punish
certain crimes if it is to punish them
at all.
Six Years To Act
Under the present law prosecuting
official shave just six years-with
some exceptions-in which to move
to bring criminals to justice. The
exceptions are murder, for which
there is no Statute of Limitations,
and kidnapping and extortion, for
which the limit is 10 years. Eaton
said his bill would fix a general limit
of 12 years for all felonies, six years
for non-felony offenses, but continue
the rule of no limit on the time in
which homicide cases may be pun-

Jime nez Says
Hay Fever Has
Started Early
"Hay fever caused by pollen from
cottonwood, maple, box elder, elm,
and mixed maple trees has already
started," Dr. Buenaventura Jimenez,
Health Service physician, said yes-
Many students having hay fever
symptoms have come to the Allergy
Clinic at the Health Service within
the last few days, Dr. Jimenez re-
ported. This will be a very bad year
for hay fever sufferers, he predicted,
as the hay fever season has started
two or three weeks earlier than usual.
This means that the hay fever season
will be longer, he said, and that
there will probably be a more abun-
dant growth of grasses and weeds,
and subsequently more pollen will
be produced.
The hay fever season will last from
now until the first good frost, Dr.
Jimenez stated. Hay fever sufferers
who come to the Allergy Clinic, he
said, will be given injections to deter-
mine exactly what pollen they are
allergic to, and then will be given
specific pollen antigen.
Mozart's Music
Will Be Played
Recordings of the First Act of Moz-
art's "Magic Flute" will be given at
7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Lane Hall
Library by Les Hetenyi in his regular
music seminar.
The remaining portion of the piece
will be played next week. The rec-
ords, which were made in England,
feature Sir Thomas Beecham as con-
ructor and members of the Berlin
Opera Company as soloists.
The seminar will begin with a
shoit discussion period covering the
background of the style of the music
and the period during the life of
Mozart. There also will be short
comments on each selection in the
opera and a running commentary on
the arias.
Hetenyi will distribute a mimeo-
graphed copy of the opera's plot and
Alpha Phi Omega
Will Hold Meeting
Alpha Phi Omega will hold a meet-
ing for all men who are interested

in joining the service fraternity at
7:30 p.m. tonight in the Union,
Charles S. Lewis, secretary, announc-
ed yesterday.
The fraternity, which is devoted to
serve both the campus and commun-
ity, has several projects planned for
the semester and those who join now
will be eligible to participate. All
men who have been or are now mem-
bers of the Boy Scouts of America
are eligible for membership and are
invited to attend. Those candidates
who have been chosen for pledgeship
this semester will be announced.

has said through Special Prosecutor
Kim Sigler that it has uncovered
graft cases which can not be punish-
ed because they occurred prior to
the 1939 legislative session. Sigler
made the statement on the record in
court trial of 20 defendants convicted
last summer of a graft conspiracy.
Eaton said lawyers have assured
him that there is no constitutional
bar to change of the Statute of Limi-
Cites Uninvestigated Bribe
In a prepared statement he said
he sat in the legislature in 137
when a colleague announced in de-
bate "that he knew definitely that
money had been used to kill a certain
bill in committee."
Eaton asserted no member of the
committee challenged the accusa-
tion, but that his own efforts to have
it investigated were futile. He said
the Speaker of the House never com-
pleted appointment of the investigat-
ing committees which he had de-
manded in a motion, and that "this
open charge of bribery, which was
never denied, stands uninvestigated
to this day."
Lawyers explain that the Statute
of Limitations is a device to encour-
age speed in the workings of prose-
cuting officials, and to protect rights
of an accused person to have testi-
mony come from recollections not
dimmed by time.
