Rep. Rabaut To
Make His Bid
For Judgeship
WASHINGTON, Jan. 9-(U)-Stat-
ing that "I think it's time the Demo-
cratic party rewarded a winner in-
stead of someone who tried and
didn't make .it," Rep. Rabaut (D.-
Mich.) today announced his candi-
dacy to the judgeship of the Federal
District court, Detroit, left vacant by
the death of Judge Arthur J. Tut-
tle.
Rabaut referred to the recent un-
successful candidacy of Arthur Kos-
cinski for Michigan Secretary of
State. Koscinski, supported by the
Polish Democratic members of the
Wayne County Delegation, is now a
candidate for the judgeship.
Rep. Hook,. Ironwood Democrat,
said that while he would not actively
back any candidate because he was
not from Wayne county, he believed
"They couldn't make a better choice
than Koscinski."
It is traditional that President
Roosevelt defer to the wishes of the
state's Democratic congressmen and
national committeemen in appoint-
ing a new judge, though his choice is
[subject to Senate confirmation.

straight from the combat soldier.
It's the sort of thing you hear scores
of times as boys come out of this
or that bloody fight.
Lt. Jack Melton of Dallas, Tex.,

face was bearded and haggard. This
is what that tall, gangling, Company

it was like:

ducked. To top it off, the weather
