Early Candidates Certification~
Eliminates Gov. Green From
Gubernatorial Race.
Former Candidate Hints Action:
in Deleting Green Name Was:
Political Racketeering.
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, July 25.-Premature
and secret certification of candi-
dates for the Republican nomina-
tion for governor by the state de-
partment was revealed today amid
cries of "trickery" and "conspiracy"r

-.. ..

from supporters of Alex J. Groes-
beck and George W. Welsh. The
certification removed Governor
Green as a candidate but proposed
to leave Welsh in the race.
The certification was set, public-
ly, for Friday byClark Brown, head
of the compiling and election divi-
sion. Thursday afternoon, immedi-
ate certification was ordered by
John S. Haggerty, Secretary of
State, and bitter political enemy of
Groesbeck. By this sudden move,
Welsh's name was certified to coun-
ty clerks as a candidate, although
it was known he planned to with-
Attempt to Split Vote
The name of Governor Green,
who has not publicly withdrawn
since petitions were filed for him,
was not certified. If it was an at-
tempted coup to place Welsh's
name on the ballots, thus splitting
the Groesbeck vote-and benefitting
the administration candidate, it'
has failed. Welsh promptly sent
telegrams to all county clerks; de-
manding ,that his name be kept
off the ballots. According to Emer-
son R. Boyles, deputy attorney-gen-
eral, he has complied to all legal
requirements and his name must
be kept off in counties where the
printing of ballots has not started.
As far as could be learned no coun-
ty has started printing the ballots.
Ballots Not Printed
In his telegram to county clerks,
Welsh said:
"This action of allowing the1
name of Fred W. Green to be taken
off the certification and keeping
mine on, smacks of political rack-
eteering. I trust you will not be-
come a party to this apparent con-

today in the quake-stricken area of
southern Italy as King Victor Em-

The first shocks closely succeed-

Three briefer ones followed at

Appropriation to Broaden

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 25.-Intent
on expanding the State Depart-
ment's internal organization and
the foreign service aboard as rapid-
ly as possible, Secretary Henry L.
Stimson again has asked the Bud-
get Bureau for an increased appro-
priation covering virtually all phas-
es of America's diplomatic activi-

and President Hoover the figures
will not be made public, but it is
known the secretary has asked for
the full authorized fund of $2,000,-

In line with President Hoover's
policy of reinforcing the American
foreign service in Latin-America,
the secretary's estimates include a
provision for 18 new foreign service
officers in various cities in South
and Central America.
This would represent an increase
of 10 per cent in the personnel in
the Latin-American field. A request
has also been made for a consider-
able increase in non-officer per-

Once Strong Man of Lithuania
Is Exiled to Remote Part
of Native Land.
Professor Augustine Waldemaras
Was Known for Sharp Fights
With Pilsudski.
(By Associated Press
KOVNO, Lithuania, July 25.-
Prof. Augustine Waldemaras, for-
mer premier and virtual dictator
of Lithuania, has been banished to
an unnamed provincial town by
order of the commandant of the
Kovno district.
The one-time strong man of
Lithuania, who on more than one'
occasion caused the whole mach-
inery of the League of Nations at
Geneva to halt while he fought to
regain Vilna, now a Polish city, for
his country, was pronounced "a
danger to public order" in the de-
cree of deportation issued by the
The authorities declined to di-
vulge the name of the place to
which the former premier was ex-'
iled. Motor lorries removed his be-
longings from his home which was
Began Career in 1917
Waldemaras, who is now in his
forty-eighth year, became an in-
ternationally conspicuous figure
during and especially after the
World War.
Prof. Waldemaras' political ca-
reer began in 1917, when he took
part in a congress of Lithuanian
leaders in Leningrad, then St. Pe-
tersburg, and led the faction which
stood for Lithuanian independence.
During the Bolshevik revolution
he escaped to Berlin, where he was
interpreter for the Ukranian lega-
tion, his knowledge of nine modern
languages besides Latin and Greek
soon made him an indispensable
factor at the legation, and he clev-
erly used his position to make pro-
paganda for a free Lithuania.
Clashes With Pisudski
At the Versailles conference in
1919 he was the official representa-
tive of his fatherland. He was deep-
ly grieved, however, when Vilna
was awarded to Poland. From then
on the fight to establish Lithuania's
claims to Vilna became his absorb-
ing object in life. .
Waldemaras became premier in
1926. His clashes with Marshal Jo-
seph Pilsudski and foreign minis-
ter August Zaleski of Poland en-
livened the sessions of the League
of Nations for several years. His
professional disquisitions on the
historical development of Vilna, on
the other hand, caused exaspera-
tion in League of Nations circles
eager to get on with business.
Meanwhile he was able to main-
tain himself at home only by run-
ning the country under a dictator-
ship. This brought him much en-
mity. In May, 1929, he had a nar-
row escape from death when a
bomb was thrown at his party as
it was about to enter the State
Theatre here. His aide-de-camp
and his step-son were killed.

morning conference today at whichI
it was decided that the babies of

Thousands of Detroit Citizens
Visit Bier of Murdered
Radio Orator.
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, July 25.-Thousands
of men, women and children today
and tonight paid their tribute to
Jerry Buckley, slain radio orator,
walking in a never-ending line
past his bier in the living room of
his Pasadena avenue home.
This spontaneous procession,
which started last night grew
throughout the day and showed no
signs of diminishing as the hours
for closing the home approached.
Police etimated the csrowd at 50,-
000 or more. The family announc-
ed that no visitors would b receiv-
ed after midnight, when prepara-
tions would begin for the funeral,
tomorrow morning at St. Greg-
ory's Catholic church.
In the meanwhile, police were
holding a man and a woman whom,
they consider important figures in
the investigation of the killing..
The man is Jack Klein, motion pic-
ture operator, who was sitting be-
side Buckley in the lobby of the
LaSalle hotel when he was killed
by three gunmen early Wednesday
morning a short time after he had
completed announcing the results
of the mayoralty recall election
over station WMBC where he was
political commentator. Klein fail-
ed in an effort to secure release
on a writ of habeas corpus.
The woman's name was not re-
vealed. County Prosecutor James
E. Chenot said that he was seeking
through her a man she said inti-
mated to her in . advance that
Buckley would be killed.

Dean Edward H. Kraus of the
Summer Session yesterday an-
nounced that the total registration

Defeats Jean Borotra in Four
Sets Before Crowd of
10,000 Persons.
Dividing of Victories in First Day
Leaves Fate of Outcome
Hanging in Balance.
A. P. Sports Writer
PARIS, July 25.-Big Bill Tilden,
veteran of 10 Davis cup campaigns,
hung a French scalp to his belt to
begin his 11th today. He defeated
Jean Borotra, and Borotra at the
top of his form, in four sets, 6-2,
7-5, 6-4, 7-5. Thus he justified his
last-minute inclusion in the invad-
ing American forces and did it
with such decision that not a soul
in the 10,000 who watched the
opening of the 1930 Challenge
round had the 'least doubt who was
the better.
Two hours later little Henri Co-
chet had taken his revenge for
Wimbledon by sending y oun g
George Lott to the showers with a
straight set defeat 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. The
score when the evening shadows
settled over Auteuil was America-i,
France-1, and the fate of the Davis
cup for 1930 still hung very much
in the balance. The doubles match
will be played tomorrow and the
final pair of singles Sunday.
Stadium Is Filled
Despite more than a hint of rain
and a hot, muggy day, there wasn't
a vacant place in the big stadium
when Tilden and Borotra began the
usual preliminary ball slugging. As
the veteran umpire, Nicolas Redel-
sperber climbed into his little pul-
pit, a warm, dusty wind blew
slaunch-wise across the courts. It
seemed to bother both players a bit.
Like a couple of wary boxers each
felt out the other's ability in the
early stages of play. They stuck to
the base lines, stroked faithfully
down the lines and played safe re-
turns for position rather than try-
ing for kills. Big Bill was on edge,
nervous from the outset: His eager-
ness made him net and out balls
that normally he would have shot
across for winning points.
Borotra Breaks Through
Borotra, on the other hand, soon
had the measure of the couit. He
played for position and let the big
Philadelphian do most of the run-
ning. Games followed service until
the fourth when the bounding
Basque broke through. He won the
next two easily. as Bill continuously
over-drove the lines.
Tilden seemed to find himself in
the seventh game. He stopped Bor-
otra's service with three nice place-
ments, but he couldn't keep the
pace and his own errors convicted
him in the final game of the set.
There was joy in the French camp
and lots of bets were made on the
strength of Tilden's erratic play
that' Borotra would at last over-
come the jinx that has followed
him ift Tilden- matches. That joy
grew and flourished for the major
part of the second set, for Borotra,
sure and' accurate varying the
depth and pace of his ground
strokes, and impeccable at the net,
took the first, third, fourth, fifth
and seventh games to lead, 5-2. It
was the critical point of the match,
and Tilden, casting aside his nerv-

ousness, rose to meet it.


it was rising. Her injuries were
to be slight.
