told a Ferndale audience Thursday
night that completion of Wider
Woodward Ave. in the Detroit area
and a reconstruction of the state's
fiscal program are the major prob-
lems confronting whoever takes of-
fice at Lansing Jan. 1.
'Praises Gas Tax

Green administration, in a speech
at Greenville upheld the present
gasoline tax and attacked the par-
dons and paroles issued by former
Gov. Groesbeck as contributory'

Judge Jeffries, former old-line

plaining, "They'll listen to you as a
Republican," appeared before a De-

that he be elected governor so he
could whip congress into line on

Groesbeck's appearance Thurs-
day night was the first he had
made since he announced he was
seeking a return to the governor-

mer governor accused the other
candidate of failure to bring out
the real issues of the campaign as
they affect the welfare of the state.
He advocated careful consideration
of taxation to relieve the taxpayers
and reconstruction of the state's
financial program.
Judge Jeffries indicated that his
entire campaign would be based on
his urgent advocacy of farm relief.
Observatory to Offer Students
Unusual Telescope Views.
Visitors' nights at the observatory
next' week will give Summer Ses-
sion 'students an opportunity to in-
spect the apparatus at the Univer-
sity observatory as well as to view
the moon through a high-power
The instrumental .equipment that
will be shown to the visitors in-
cludes the observatory's 37 1-2 inch
telescope, used only for spectro-
seopic work; the meridian circle,
used for determining exact time by
observation of stars crossing the
meridian; and a seismograph, that
records earthquake shocks. This
seismograph recently recorded the
disturbance during the earthquake
in Italy.
The visitors will be permitted to
observe the moon through a 12 1-2
inch telescope. Through this tele-
scope, which is so powerful that
only a small part of the moon can
be seen at one time, they will be
shown the portion of the moon
most, varied in surface features.
Mountains may be seen on the
moon which approach 20,000 feet in
A particular feature wlich always
interests visitors ,Prof. W. C. Rufus
asserts, is the view of mountain
peaks on the moon illuminated by

the rising sun while valleys remain
in the shadow. The moon craters
and so-called seas will also be
pointed out.

KIRKWALL, Orkney Islands, Aug.
1.-Wolfram Hirth and Oscar Well-
er, Germany's trans-Atlantic air
adventurers, today hopped off from
Kirkwall on their first over-water
jump toward the American conti-
nent. Their immediate destination
was Iceland.
The takeoff from this point was
encouraging. Weather conditions
were ideal.
Forecast Favorable
Hirth left Kirkwall at 8:15 a. m.
for Swanbister bay where the plane
awaited him, fueled and ready for
the start. Weller remained at Kirk-
wall to await favorable weather
Fifteen minutes after his mate
departed Weller received the fore-
cast. His face beamed. "It couldn't
be better," he exclaimed. Another
moment and the flyer was on his
way to Swanbister by motorcar.
The plane ran smoothly down the
field almost to the edge of the bay.
The airport is small but was suf-
ficient for the takeoff.

CHICAGO, August 1. - Dr.
David M. Robinson of Johns
Hopkins university has made the
interesting discovery that B. C.
Greeks 'were not above "neck-

that they had shower baths, and
bathtubs, and that they even
laughed at comic strips.
Dr. Robinson, professor of
archeology at Johns Hopkins,
made his observations at Uni-

has just returned from Olyn-
phus, Greece, where important
excavations were made.

R-100 Reaches St. Hubert Port
Slightly Damaged From
Cyclonic Current.
Giant Airship Ties Up at Mast
Closing Epic 3,500-Mile
Trip From England.
(By Associated Press)
treal, Aug. 1.-The British dirigible
R-100 a sailor home from the sea,
swung gently from her mooring
mast tonight, behind her 3,500
miles of epic voyage that almost
ended in disaster.
Speeding down the St. Lawrence
river valley last night, just 150 miles
from St. Hubert mast and safety,
the night air voyager was struck
by a clyconic current that hurled
it 2,500 feet straight' upward and
tore a great hole in her fragile ar-
mour. The damage was repaired
and the big ship proceeded slowly
into Montreal, anchoring at her
mast at 4:38 a. m., just 78 hours
and 51 minutes after taking off
from Cardington, Eng., on her flight
to the new world.
Officers Deny Danger.
Officers, told that they were talk-
ing for publication, made light of
the danger encountered. The men,
not so constrained, spoke more
Their story was one to make the
heart quicken with thanksgiving
for the 'peril that was passed, a
peril that struck with the speed
and ferocity of a serpent.
Just the other side of Quebec,
they said, a strong up-current of
clyconic force caught the R-100 and
hurled it practically standing on
its nose, for almost 2,500 feet in
less than a half minute.
Storms Rip Fabric.
It was during that terrific mo-
ment, when all aboard just crossed
their fingers and waited, that a
strip of fabric about 15 by 6 feet
was ripped from the port fin, open-
ing a hole as big as a barn door in-
to the great envelope, exposing the
intricate interior of the largest air-
ship ever built to the fury of the
Relieving of Docket Is Sought
by Dropping Liquor Cases.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Aug, .--Prohibi-
tion director Amos W. W. Woodcock,
expects the new enforcement policy
of concentrating up the large scale
violators of the dry laws to con-
tribute incidentally to the relief of
congestion in the federal courts.
This, he said today, should come
about through the elimination of
the, flood of minor cases that have
been clogging the dockets. Even
with an increased staff of agents,
he predicted fewer. cases would be
brought in the court.
The cases that are prosecuted,
however, he pointed out, may be

expected to be of importance and a
step in the bureau's program of
shutting off the supply of illicit
liquor at its source.
The line of demarcation between
petty and major offenses is to be
sharply drawn. Carrying a pint of
liquor on the hip and transporting
10 gallons in an automobile, Wood-
cock said, are two altogether dif-
ferent things.. Woodcock spent the
day conferring with the group lead-
ers of the corps of special agents
assigned to special investigation
work and detect widespread con-
spiracies to violate the liquor laws.
In addition he spoke briefly to the
12 supervisors of industrial alcohol
permits, -who met here with their
chief, James M. Doran, on ques-
tions of organization, and adminis-
tration. Today's conference brought
to an end the series begun early in
the week which were intended .to
acquaint the field director of the


occupied chair.
The announcer had just finshed
broadcasting the returns of the
election which recalled M a y o r
Bowles and the .two men discussed
the event casually, Klein said. Sud-
denly there were shots.
