S eret Witnesses See
Four Men in 'Show-Up'
JACKSON, Mich., April 21.-()-
Four men detained for questioning
concerning the slaying last Jan. 11
of State Senator Warren G. Hooper
were viewed today by secret witnes-
ses at a "show-up" at the state po-
lice post, but what the result may
have been was not disclosed.
Elaborate precautions were taken
by the officers to conceal the iden-
tity of the witnesses.
"We have made progress in the
case," Capt. William Hanson of the
Jackson state police post said, and
added, "We feel we are nearing a
Capt. Hanson declined to say on
what facts his optimism was based.
Nor would he say whether today's
witnesses were those disclosed early
in the murder investigation to have
seen a maroon-colored automobile
with at least two occupants near and
at the spot where Hooper was found
shot to death.

Men prominent in Latin-American
education, taxi-drivers who want to
become tourist guides, and house-
wives who want to learn English in
order to understand American movies
and fashion magazines-these and
many other groups are attracted to
the English Language Institute in
Mexico, Dr. Albert H. Markwardt, di-
rector of the Institute in Mexico dur-
ing the past two years and associate
professor of English here, said in an
"Fifteen-thousand pzople in Lat-
in America are now learning Eng-
lish in U. S. government-sponsor-
ed projects, and at present there
are no less than 22 cultural in-
stitutes to care for these needs,"
Prof. Marckwardt said.
Supported by the Division of In-
tellectual Cooperation of the State
Department, the English Language
Institute in Mexico is not only teach-
ing English as a foreign language, but
it is also helping Mexicans to teach
English to the Latin-American pub-
i 'Although this program may be de-
scribed as a general adult education
project, teacher training is an im-
portant aspect of its work. People
from the United States who want to
teach English to their fellow-country-
men receive valuable 'in-service'
training at the Institute," Prof.
The curriculum comprises three
years of study and emphasizes the
spoken language, with the result
that by the end of the third seme-
ster, the language classes are con-
duced entirely in English. In the
past two years, the enrollment in
Mexico City increased from 150 to
The staff, composed of a majority
of Michigan-trained people, also pre-
pared text materials for the teach-
ing of English. 'Few good text-books
have been' written that are adoptable
for use in teaching English as a for-
eign language," Prof. Marckwardt
said, "but Mrs. Aileen Kitchin and
Miss Virginia French, under the di-
rection of Prof. Charles C. Fries of
the Department of English here, are
preparing materials for publication."
The Institute also acts in an edu-
cational-advisory capacity. Prof.
Marckwardt gave the example of the
Universidad Femenina which was to
begin a program leading to a Mast-
er's degree in literature and which
sought the advice of the Institute in
formulating its curriculum.
In 1943 Prof. Marckwardt was
invited to serve as a visiting pro-
fessor at the National University
Iof Mexico. In this capacity one of
his duties was to direct the Insti-
tute located in the Benamin
Franklin Library in Mexico City.
This semester he resumed his posi-
tion in the University Department
Other members of the staff who
were trained at the University of
Michigan were Mrs. Marckwardt, Mrs.
Mentor Williams, Miss Estelle Grif-
fiths, Mr. and Mrs. James K. Pas-
serelli, Howard Tessen, and Jane
