issues and seek to restore the pros-
perity of our countries and to reha-
bilitate their purchasing power," he
said.

or to exaggerate what can immed-

of empire trade."

Britain in a preferential way protect-
ed areas of Australian industry ex-

Ship Clubhouse." A gangplnk and
ship's lantern out in front invited

was held in one of the labs and
pr'izesoffel'ed. Doris Hshu was the
winner.
Monday and Tuesday nights were
featured by two inteesting lectures

T.T.T., There are'many amateurs in
this field and one can see strips of
negatives hanging in the developing
room any day.
The only depression spot in camp

some poison inyers lately, Al Gray,
R. L. Cheatum, and Ruth Godwin
being numbered among them.

Michigan Cuts
Auto License
Costs in Half
Reduction Advanced One
Month to Bring 107,000
Cars Out of Storage
LANSING, July 22.-(AP)-The
price of automobile license plates will
be reduced 50 per cent Aug. 1, Frank
D. Fitzgerald, secretary of state, ah-
nounced today. His decision to ad-
vance'the date one month was based
upon a poll of the members of the
legislature, with more than two-
thirds of both houses advocating the
early precaution as an emergnecy
measure.
The state law provides that the
price of plates be, cut in two from
Sept. 1. When Fitzgerald received
reports, however, that more than
107,000 cars are laid up because
their owners have been unable to buy
licenses, he decided to ask the in-
formal consent of the legislature to
a technical law violation.
Fitgerald said that revenue from
automobile plates is $1,500,000 below
what it totaled at the same time a
year ago. Gasoline tax receipts are
$150,000 to'$200,000 down. He be-
lieves thousands of persons who
might use their cars to seek employ-
ment or for profitable enterprises
may be able to put them into opera-
tion under the reduced fee.

Mayor Walker tonight asked New t
York City's 130,000 employees to step b
up and contribute one months pay d
to avert a crisis in municipal fin-r
nances. .
He addressed a sober-faced audi-
ence of city department heads in the c
board of estimate chamber at thea
city hall and his remarks were heardu
by thousands of co-workers listen-E
ing in a nation-ide broadcast.
The mayor, looking more serioust
than usual, evidenced his own will- 1
ingness to give "two months salary"
but was confusing as to when he ex-c
pected the proposed contribution to
be made. At one point he said:
"I want you to come forward and
say: "For two months give me a half
months pay or four months deduct I
25 per cent of my pay.'"t
At the conclusion of hi address,o
he, turned away from the microphone t
to his audience and explained, "Ic
want to make it clear that this is for c
the 1933 budget. The money is not
to be taken this year."
He ordered his department headsC
to 'poll their employees early next
week and determine whether theyI
would voluntarily lighten the load oft
the tax payers or "refuse to andt
leave it for someone else 'to do."'n
