DETROIT, July 24. - Alex J
Groesbeck, three times governor of
Michigan, continued today as the
anti-administration candidate for
the Republican gubernatorial nom-
ination despite reports Wednesday
that he would withdraw to enter
the race for mayor of Detroit in
the election which must follow the
recall of Mayor Charles Bowles.
He declined Wednesday night to
discuss the possibility of withdraw-
al from the state race except to
declare he still was a candidate for
George W. Welsh, city manager
of Grand Rapids; and considered
Groesbeck's chief ally, announced
Wednesday night he would with-
draw by Friday from the primary
race into which he was precipi-
tated by unauthorized filing of pe-
titions in his behalf.
City Manager Proposed
That announcement was made
after he had talked with Groes-
beck on a hurried visit to Detroit.
Groesbeck said, however, that dis-
cussion of the withdrawal of either

Groesbeck Wednesday night pro-
posed a city manager as the solu-
tion of Detroit's disturbed govern-
ment affairs. The great need, he
said, is for removal of important
city departments from politics.
Efforts were In progress today
to postpone tte mayorality election
to Sept. 9, when it could be con-
solidated with the state-wide pri-
maries with a resultant economy in
expense. An opinion on legality of
such procedure was asked by City
Clerk Richard W. Reading Wed-
nesday of Corporation Counsel
Clarence E. Wilcox.
Two Elections Likely.
The law requires that the elec-
tion be held within 30 days after
the city clerk, who also is chair-
man of the election commission,
completes the canvass of the recall
vote and certifies the result to the

would complete the canvass by

to be legal he said he might delay)

9 so the election can be called for
the day of the primaries.a
Otherwise the election probably
will be called for the last week in
August, no more than two weeks
in advance of the state primaries.

What brought on this long har-
angue was a shopping tour we took
to Detroit during the climax of the
recent heat wave during which we
discovered many things, principal-
ly, a brand new shop tucked away
on the refrigerated main floor ofj
the Fisher building, where one can
relax in the comfort of a private
room and have all sorts of things
brought in for inspection, including
sandwiches and iced tea. This
shop's specialty right now is cro-
cheted berets in all colors, decorat-
ed with small velvet bows, which
are both cool and easy to wear.
Draped, tilted hats, going back from
the face and showing quite a bit
of hair line, are also expertly han-
Other examples of millinery we
noticed on our excursion included
a velvet turban, wide and flaring at
one side, and draped fairly close to
the head on the other. A toque of
heavy velvet with a huge tab com-
ing forward on one cheek, and a
higher tab on the opposite side, is
displayed for early fall by several
stores. Patou has designed a small
draped turban of white felt, with
an inverted V made of dark astra-
khan going up over one ear and
under the other.
The wide-brimmea linen hats,
mentioned before in this column,
are still holding their own. Tweed
turbans are again prophesied for
fall, as are also the perrenial felt
and soleil. Black grosgrain ribbon is
used for many smart hats, one from
Rose Descat in particular, which
has a shallow crown, a brim that
widens on one side, and a small1
tailored bow at the back.
SEEK CURE FOR CANCER
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, July 24.-New tubes
to unlock far-reaching healing
powers of X-rays are sought by the
Radiological Research institute, the
latst American scientific society.
Incorporation of this institute in
Delaware was announced today by
the acting president, Dr. Edwin
Charles Ernst of St. Louis. The
tubes to produce X-rays of a power
now unavoidable, Dr. Ernst said,
are one of the first objectives. Deep-
er penetration is sought, and faster1
action so that the rays can be used
to "stop" the image of a moving
internal organ, which now appears
as a blur.
"X-ray," said a statement by Dr.
Ernst and Dr. Rollin H. Stevens of
Detroit, secretary of the institute,
"are finding rapidly extending use.
They relieve infections, skin condi-
tions, pneumonia and asthma; they
are the most effective treatment for
a common pimple affliction and for
boils and barbuncles. They help
some kinds of cancer.
"We now produce X-rays of from
6,000 to 250,000 volts. If we went
to 300,000 or 400,000 volts we could
get practically radium rays from
an X-ray tube, and we know results
would be better.
"But we cannot go that high, for'
we lack the tubes to stand it. One
man gets a desirable result but an-
other trying the same treatment
fails. Sometimes because of irregu-
lar output from tubes. In seven
years there has been no real im-
provement in American X-ray
tubes. Though meanwhile science
has gone beyond the capacities of
most domestic tubes.
"Accurate measuring of X-ray
dosage is becoming vital. There is
no more powerful poison than an
overdose of X-rays or radium. For
safety the rays should be standard-
ized under government regulation
but we cannot do this with tubes of
the present irregular performance."

to a close one of the most success-

of Michigan summer sessions.
At present the Superintend-
