Thomas McIntyre Cooley, who rose
from poverty to become chief justice
of the Michigan Supreme court, first
chairman of the Interstate Com-
merce commission and an inter-
preter of the nation's constitutional
law, not second even to the famous
John Marshall, is to be memorialized
by the University of Michigan, where
he served many years as professor of
law, in a biographical volume to
which persons from many parts of
the country are contributing infor-
mation and reminiscences on the
"Throughout a long and exceed-
ingly active life Judge Cooley con-
tributed more than any other law-
yep to the application of the nation's
fundamental law to the country
which was changing from the agri-
cultural nation of pre-Civil war days
to the industrial giant of today,"
says Prof. John S. Worley, who heads
the committee preparing the Cooley
biography. In personality quiet and
unassuming, Judge Cooley's honr
came to him without seeking. It was
his sharp insight and sound knowl-
edge of the constitution which
brought him to the chairmanship of
the first Interstate Commerce com-
mission in 1887, where he led the
fikht of the govefnment to reduce to
order and fairness the chaotic dnd
often unprincipled competition of
business and industry of the day.
The Cooley biography. was begun
20 years ago by Judge Henry Wade
Rogers, of the New York federal dis-
trict court, but was cut short in 1928
by the death of the writer who had
retired from the bench., to work on
the book. Recently Professor .Wor-
ley, curator of the transportation li-
brary in the University, secured the
Cooley material, 11 years of diaries
atic writings, owned by Judge Rog-
ers, bearing upon the legal aspects
of railroad transportation.
PALQ ALTO, Calif., July 1.-
(Special) -Although little was heard
this year of Michigan's dark horse,
Eddie Tolan, at the Olympics, until
he took second place in the 100 and
200 meter American finals her'e, he
is now doped to place in the final
Olympic sprints. ,
During his first two \years at the
University of Michigan, Tolan car-
ried on a feud with George Simpson
of Ohio State. In the Western Con-
ference meets in those years the two
always finished one-two. Tolan en-
tered the University in 1927 and
graduated in 1931.
His condition at the Olympic camp
here is said to be far better than at
any time during his college career.
This summer he has overcome his
old handicap of slow starts, thus
making it possible to step out agaipst
Wykoff, Toppino, Metcalfe and oth-
ers in the Olympic finals.
During the summer of 1931 this
squatty Michigan youth broke the
world's record in the 100-meter run
in a- race against Percy Williams at
Vancouver. His time was 10.2.
Wykoff was also entered in that race.
In 1930 Tolan made his world's
record, 9.5 seconds, in the 100-yard
dash. He was unbeaten in dual meet
competiiton in 1931 and also worthe
100-yard and 220-yard titles in the
Western conference. His best time
indoors was 6.2 seconds, tying the
world's record, in the 60-yard dash.
Out of doors he ran the 100 in 09.4.
His best time in the 220 was 20.9.
He won this event in th'e I. C.-4 A
and the N. C. A. A.
