Doak Says Wickersham Report
Came From Inexperienced
Observer's Study.

- -
I. I I

Second Son of Famous Michigan Football Star,
Willie' Heston, to Join Kipke's Team in Fall

Charges of tyrannic and uncon-
stitutional practices in the deporta-
tion of aliens, laid at the door of
federal immigration officials by the
Wickersham commission, today
drew from Secretary Doak the re-
ply that abuses were being correct-
The secretary of labor dissent-
ed, however, from some of the sug-
gestions of the commission's tenth
report to Presiderijt Hoover. He
asserted they came "from an ob-
server without experience in the
practical problems of deportation."
The commission itself split over
the charges of its expert, Reuben
Oppenheimer, Baltimore attorney,
who wrote all but a brief preface
to the 179-page report on "The En-
forcement of the Deportation
Laws." Oppenheimer asserted that
in examining about 100,000 sup-
posed aliens and deporting about
15,000 annually officials employed
methods that smacked of the in-
quisition and often violated "the
plainest dictates of humanity."
"It is doubtful," he said, "if any-
where in the entire system of
Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence are
government officials given similar
unfettered rights of private in-
quiry, or is the exercise of govern-
mental powers more often charact-
erized by violations of fairness and
Both Col. Henry W. Anderson of
Richmond, Va., and former Justice
Kenneth Mackintosh of the Wash-
ington state supreme court, objected
to these charges as a too severe in-
dictment of the department of la-
bor.. The latter said flatly he did
not believe the abuses were as wide
as was indicated.
"The limited number of cases to
which Mr. Oppenheimer refers,"
Doak said today, "cover a period
prior to my becoming secretary of
labor. Every effort has been made
to correct administrative abuses,
and Mr. Oppenheimer generously
acknowledges that the defects he
finds do not now apply to the de-
Light Showers Help
Idaho Fire Fighters
SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 8.-(P)--
Light showers were dampening
northwest forests today, with high
humidity promising rains that
would help 3,000 fire fighters.
Only in Idaho National forest
were blazes still raging uncon-
trolled. Danger fronts farther to
the north were being held along
closely patrolled fire lines as fa-
vorable weather brought the first
lull in more than a week.
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 8.-(P)-
Sweeping down San Francisquito
canyon, scene of the disastrous 1928
St. Francis dam break, fire today
left in its wake charred cabin
homes, burned hay fields and black
ruin over a stretch of several miles.
Approximately 400 men were bat-
tling the flames.

;ohn P. "Jack" Heston is the
second son of Willie Heston, one
of football's "immortals," and ap-
pears to be in line to follow the
game path his father trod. He built
up a reputation on his strong de-
fensive work at Detroit Northwest-
ern high, then continued with like
results at Lake Forest academy. In-
cidentally, he and Stanley Fay
started playing the game together
and havie worked together as a
backfield combination ever since.
Heston has gained fame particu-
larly because of his open field work.
He has the speed of a deer and if
he gets in the clear is gone. He
also has the peculiar knack of be-
ing able to pick holes and to make
his way into the clear. Being close
to six feet tall and weighing more
than 170 pounds, he is not lacking
in drive. In the open he reminds
one of Oran Pape, former Iowa star.
His speed also is an asset on de-
fense. He knows no fear, and withal
is a dangerous man to attempt to
elude. This was not only demon-
strated in his prep school days, but
also last fall when he was a mem-
ber of the physical education squad
and during the spring practice

Children's Rhythm Classes And
Adults in Rhythm and Tap
Courses to Appear.
As a "grande finale" for the
rhythm and tap dancing courses
which have been given this sum-
mer, there will be an open class.
at 3 o'clock next Wednesday after-
noon in Sarah Caswel Angell Hall.
The program will open with some
work done by the children's rhythm
classes which Emily White has
taught and will be continued by the
adult rhythm classes which will ap-
ply the same principles in dancing
that were used by the children.
After the rhythm dancing, the tap
classes will give a program of
dances which they have learned
this summer under the direction
of Jean Hall. These dances will
include work by both the beginners
and advanced classes.
Although everyone is invited to
come to this program, the staff
feel that the children's dancing
will hold particular interest to those
who are taking elementary school
work, physical education, or nursery
school work. Students studying
speech, dramatics, and music, they
feel, will find much of interest in
the older classes rhythm and tap
dancing program.

Farm Board Rejects Offer But
Proposes That Reich Buy
From the Trade.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 8.-(P)-
Germany's offer to buy a part of
the farm board's 1,300,000 bales of
price stabilization cotton has been
rejected because the purchase terms
offered were held unsatisfactory.
The action was announced Fri-
day night, simultaneously with a
suggestion by the board of an ar-
rangement by which Germany may
make cotton purchases direct from
the trade in this country.
The board called attention to the
efforts of the treasury to provide
Germany with dollar credit here by
expediting payment of war claims
of German Nationals. Credit in ex-
cess of the proposed cotton pur-
chase, it said, would be provided
and would permit direct buying of
the commodity.
Claims of German Nationals, the
board noted, far exceeded the possi-
ble purchase of between $30,000-
000 and $40,000,000 under the long
term credit plan. If these claims
were settled promptly, it added, sat-
isfactory arrangements would be
made for the purchase of cotton
from the trade and protests from
the south over the stabilization sale
plan would cease.
The proposition for selling the
board's surplus first was suggested
to the German government by
American Ambassador Sackett at
Berlin with the approval of Presi-
dent Hoover. Germany offered to
buy about 600,000 bales on a three-
year credit plan instead of 18
months as originally suggested. In
addition, Germany wanted the mar-
ket price, while the farm board
hoped to obtain a slightly higher
price because of long-term credit.

Mann Seeks Building
Inspection Standards
as Rigid as a Ship's
NEW YORK, Aug. 8.-( P)-A co-
operative effort to apply the same
rigid standards of inspection and
appraisal to building as are ap-
plied to ships is disclosed by Clyde
A. Mann, in an article published in
the "Eastern Underwriter."
Mr. Mann explains that an or-
ganization called certified building
registry, of which he is a director,
hopes to provide the same assur-
ance to sound appraisal of build-
ings as was secured for shipping
more than a century ago through
the non-governmental, impartial
and thorough inspections of Lloyd's
Walter J. Chase of Philadelphia,
representing the National Associa-
tion of Insurance Agents, has
recently accepted election to the
board of certified building registry,
says Mr. Mann, and the complete
board, as now being organized, will
include representatives of the ar-
chitects, engineers, property man-
agers, contractors, and realtor-
builders, as well as fire underwrit-
Mr. Mann asserts that revisions of
mortgage loan practice, including
more complete and precise investi-
gations of structures, will follow in
the wake of the wave of mortgage
foreclosures throughout the coun-
