Nation's Banks'
Are Asked To
R.F.C. And Roosevelt Re-
quest Co-Operation In
Employment Campaign
Recovery Well On
Way, States Jones
Chairman Says There Is
No Shortage Of Ready
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1.- (A) _
With the full approval of President
Roosevelt and the Treasury, Chair-
man Jesse H. Jones, of the Recon-
struction Finance Corp., tonight ask-
ed the Nation's banks to aid in the
back-to-work movement by expand-
ing credit.
At the same time, Jones asserted
that repayments of $710,000,000 of
corporation loans was evidence that
the Country was inherently sound
and recovery was well under way.
He said th jt the big lending agency
stood readyhto inflate the working
capital of the banks by purchasing
preferred stock in sound ones.
Jones read a letter from President
Roosevelt, indorsing what he said
"about the need for credit and about
co-operation in the general scheme
of 'everybody back to work.'
- Roosevelt Lauds Bankers
"I congratulate the many bankers
who have safely steered their in-
stitutions through the troubles of
the past four years," the President's
letter said, "but credit must be made
available to all classes of our citi-
zens on a permanent workable basis.
"Your plan to provide banks with
new and added capital, by the pur-
chase of preferred stock on such
fair terms as those outlined, will en-
able them to extend this credit with-
out fear of their positions.
"It is also interesting to know-
as the bankers will appreciate-that
this can be done with no added tax
burden; and at no cost to the Treas-"
No Money Shortage
Jones said that there was no short-
age of ready money or bank liquid-
ity ahd that the policy of "forced
liquidation" of loans should cease
and credit should begin moving into
business channels.
"The coffers of the big banks are
filled with Government securities,
cash balances in the Federal Reserve
and otherwise," he said, "which in-
dicates that they are still waiting to
see if the things which people own
and have to offer as security for
loans, have any real value as a basis
of credit.
"A banker may argue that he b/is
no applications for loans that he
can afford to make, but that same
banker is probably continuing the
policy of converting his loans into
cash or Government securities. This
policy of forced liquidation should
cease, and borrowers not only given
time to work out their problems, but
encouraged to take an active part in
the recovery program.

Gandhi Will Be
Released From
Will Be Prohibited From
Engaging In Campaigns
Of Disobedience
POONA, India, Aug. 1.-(/A)-Ma- I
hatma Gandhi arrested early today
with his wife and 33 followers, will
be brought to Yeroda prison here
from Ahmedabad and subsequently
will. be released.
The group were lodged in Sabar-
mati jail at Ahmedabad shortly be-
fore they planned to launch a new
civil disobedience campaign for India
The Mahatma will be released un-
der an order prohibiting him from
leaving this district or engaging in
any activities in connection with the
disobedience campaign. He will face
a possible prison septence of two
years and a public trial if he violates
the order.
His return to Yeroda prison will
bring him back to familiar surround-
ings for he was released from that
jail only last May a=ter being held
theree 16 months beause of his re-
fusal to' call off a previous disobedi-
ence campaign. Under an indefinite
sentence, he was freed when he be-
gan a three weeks' fast against un-
touchability, thus relieving the Brit-
ish government of any responsibility
for his health or life during the fast.
His followers, arrested as they pre-
pared to march to the village Ras in
the Kaira district to gain converts to
.the disobedience campaign, also were
likely to be released soon on parole.
They were sleeping at the Ashram,
Gandhi's college of devotees, when
taken in custody. Their leader was
awakened and arrested at the home
of a wealthy mill owner, Seth Ran-
Cost Of Attending
College Computed
In Recent Survey
It costs the average male student
$620 per year to attend the Univer-
sity of Michigan, if figures recently
compiled at the office of the dean of
students are correct, and, by econo-
mizing, a student can keep his ex-
penses down to $425.
The average woman student spends
$670 per year and the minimum fig-
ure for which she can attend is $545,
the data shows.
The totals given include tuition,
books, board, room rent, laundry,
cleaning bills, recreation, and inci-
dentals. In each case the tuition con-
sidered is $100 for the two semesters
The women, it seems, must eat
better food and live in more expen-
sive rooms than the men for the
minimum board expense for men is
$110 while for women it is $190. The
average cost of board is $220 fo
both men and women. The minimum
room rent for men is $90, for women
$130. The average room rent is $15C
for men and $200 for women.
Evidently, in spite of the fact thai
men pay the majority of the recrea-
tion bills, this item ,is very nearly th
same for both sexes, for under the
heading of laundry and pressing, rec-
reation and incidentals, the total i
both cases and for both minimun
and average is $100.
Books and instruments cost at th
minimum $25 and on the average $5
but these figures do not apply i
colleges where special instrument:
are needed.

BROWNSVILLE, Pa., Aug. 1.--(P)
-One striker was killed and more
than a score were wounded today
as deputy sheriffs with'guns and tear
gas turned back pickets during a day
of turmoil in the troubled soft coal
fields, where a strike spread tomore
than 30,000 miners.
Fighting broke out at four mines
and the casualties included nine men
wounded by pistol and shotgun fire,
five seared by tear gas and others
injured by stones.
Disorders Flare
The disorders flared after National
Guardsmen were withdrawn by their
commander, Maj. Kenneth W. Mo-
meyer, who was represented as feel-
ing that the strike area is too vast
to be patroled by his force of 325
The guardsmen encamped on a hill
overlooking Brownsville, in readiness
for emergencies and riots.
At Harrisburg, Gov. Gifford Pin-
chot said that there was a "condi-
tional possibility" that more troops
will be sent to the coal fields.

Jap War Leaders Ask

Larger Appropriations
TOKIO, Aug. 1.-(iP)-Japanese
Army and Navy chiefs today pre-

previous history, and 45 per cent
greater than the appropriation for
the current year.
The estimates, which were sub-
mitted to the Finance Ministry for
inclusion in the budget now being
drafted, included $50,400,000 for new
naval construction and $21,000,000
for modernization of capital ships.
The Navy Ministry asked for the
fiscal year beginning next April 1
the sum of $190,400,000, which is 30
per cent more than the estimates of
1921-22. In that year Japan extended
herself to compete with the United

The high point of the Michigan
Repertory Players summer season
openstonight with the production of
Shakespeare's comedy, "All's Well
That Ends Well." The play will run
through Saturday night, with a spe-
cial matinee Saturday.
"All's Well That Ends Well" is an
unfamiliar. play in Shakespearean
repertoire in America. Thomas Wood
Stevens, who is directing the produc-
ation, is the only' producer of the
comedy in this country since 1789. He
produced it with outstanding success
in St. Louis this spring. In reality, his
productions are the first in America,
for the recorded performance of the
'play in 1789 was of a considerably
cut version. Acting editions of Shake-
speare were- considerably cut in the
Eighteenth Century.
From point of view of setting, Mr.
Stevens' production of "All's Well" is
extremely interesting. The Mendel-

WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. - (') -
More than 600 of the nation's busi-
ness leaders were called to service
tonight by President Roosevelt to
push forward the campaign for na-
tional recovery.
Symbolizing the formal opening of
the five months' emergency re-em-
ployment drive, 9 members each of
48 state committees and 7 members
each of 26 district boards were asked
to undertake the work of getting
"every patriotic American citizen,
employer and consumer to co-operate
in this program."
Hugh S. Johnson, the recovery ad-
ministrator, made the announcement
while reports came from all over the
land that the NRA blue eagled- in-
signia was appearing today in thou-
sands of store windows beckoning
shoppers to come there.
Employers Rush to Cooperate
These reports brought word, too, of
a continuing rush of employers to
present their agreements to the hour
shortening and wage lifting move-
ment and to receive the credentials
that mark them as cooperators with
the administration.
Here in the capitol, meanwhile,
General Johnson and his aids labored
into the night on separate codes for
presidential agreements.
Johnson announced that a hear-
ing on a code of competition for the
coal industry would begin on August
14 and on that for automobiles about
the same time.
He taid in hispress conference
that if any reports of violations 'of
codes already adopted by employers
were authenticated to him he would
take very prompt action to the max-
imum of the law if necessary. He was
referring particularly to complaints
that labor provisions had been vio-
lated by some textile mills.
Acts For President
Johnson acted for President Roose-
velt in calling upon the 614 persons
to cooperate. Already over 13,000 civic
organizations have enlisted in the
campaign that is being waged to
make the N. R. A. insignia a neces-
sary tradem'ark on all merchandise.
The boards, under bulletin 3, will
advise with the recovery administra-
tion and pass upon such matters as
are referred to them.The state board
would meet at the call of the gov-

Charles F. Urschel, oil millionaire
freed by kidnapers after his wife had
paid the full ransom demanded, told
today of being held a prisoner, blind-
folded and handcuffed, for nine days
in a backwoods shack.
Details of the ransom payment
were guarded in secrecy. It was be-'
lieved by Federal operatives to have
been one of the largest ever made,
possibly $75,000 or $100,000.
Arthur Seeligson, attorney and
chief intermediary for the family,
disclosed that Mrs. Urschel paid the
entire amount asked by the kidnap-
Urschel, smiling and laughing at
times as he told of his captivity,
said that he, never saw his kidnapers
except for a few minutes in the dark
immediately after the two machine
gunners seized him from a bridge
game on the porch of his luxurious
home July 22.
The two men taped his eyes as
they started the long automobile trip
from Oklahoma City, to the hideout
shack, Urschel said, and the tape
was removed for only two brief per-
iods-once to allow him to write
a letter which paved the way for
the ransom negotiations and again
permit him to shave.
Mrs. Urschel, the former Mrs. T.
B. Slick, was jubilant over her hus-
band's safe return. Slick, who diec
nearly three years ago, was known
as the "King of Wildcatters." Urs-
chel was associated with him in his
vast oil enterprises.
Asked whether he would co-oper.
ate with Federal operatives in their
hunt for the kidnapers, Urschel sait
that he did not want to answer the
question. .
