The :plan. is to make a concerted
drive on crime not unlike in spirit
that of the old Liberty Loan cam-
paigns.
Dean Miller, speaking for the
American Bar Association, flayed un-
mercifully the criminal lawyer, the
shyster, who makes his living defend-
ing known professional crooks.
Paid to Hamper Police
"These shysters," he said, "are
paid not only to defend men who
make their living by crime but they
are also paid and paid handsomely
to see that your police are handi-
capped in your efforts to maintain
law and order.
"Whenever a good law is proposed
with teeth in it to combat the gang-
ster you will find these criminal law-
yers out at the legislature using every
means at their command to block
that law, and, if defeated in that,
they will resort to 'the courts to get
the law declared null and void on
technicalities.
"Our criminal law codes were or-
ganized centuries ago. They were
adapted from the English law when
a king reigned and the individual
citizen had to be protected from
persecution. Those laws are now ar-
chaic. New laws should be written
on our books to meet the problems
of our own times.
"But, as Mr. Bingay said in his
address, you are helpless unless you.
can have behind you the organized
public opinion of America.
Abetted by Yellow Press,
"The criminal element is organ-
ized. They have their regularly re-
tained lawyers to protect them, and
they have the sensational and irre-
sponsible press to aid and abet them.
"It is up to the policemen of Amer-
ica to sell themselves, to let the pub-
lic understand their problems, to let
tle people know the helpless battle
they are waging because there is no
organized and co-ordinated fighting
force behind them."
The Executive Board of the Po-
lice Chiefs' Association met this aft-
ernoon and prepared plans for call-
ing together representaitves of the
following associations that have been
asked to co-operate:
The American Newspaper Publish-
ers Association.
The American Association of Ad-.
vertising Agencies.
The Advertising Federation of
America.
The American Society of News-
paper Editors.
The American Bar Association.

Johnson promised a buyers' drive
"when the time is ripe," to assure
a market for the products of the re-
stimulated industries.
Authorization for 14,000 member
banks of the American Bankers' As-
sociation and 6,000 other banks, if
they subscribe, to put into effect the
wage and hour provisions of their
own code pending hearing, instead
of President Roosevelt's blanket
agreement.
Similar permission for the elec-
trical manufacturing, radio, rayon
weaving, bedding and rayon and syn-
thetic yarn industries to put their
own wage and hour limitations into
effect..
Dispute over whether governmental
price-fixing should be given the oil
industry.
Continuation of hearings on codes
for the millinery, soil pipe and cotton
garment industries. -
Advancement to Aug. 9 instead of
Aug. 14 for the date for the bitu-
minous coal hearing because of
strikes in Pennsylvania.
Receipt of thousands more tele-
grams reporting that employers were
signing the agreements.
In his effort to insure for the fu-
ture a peaceful settlement of diffi-
culties between employers and em-
ployees, the Administrator an-
nounced completion of a National
Cotton Board to which controversies
in the textile industry will be taken.
Composed of representatives of la-
bor, capital and the Administration;
the. board was described as a-model
for adoption in other industries. to
insure fair dealing and a minimum
of strikes.

Employees Are Under
TemporaryRulings
DETROiT, Aug. 2.-(A')-A survey
today indicated 'that approximately
500,000 Michigan workers are now
under specific protection of various
codes under the national recovery
act. They represent approximately]
one-third of the gainfully employed
men and women in the state.
Pledges of adherence to the Presi-
dent's work-wage' agreement have
been received from 13,500 employers
and A. J. Barnaud, manager of the
Detroit bureau of the Department1
of Commerce, estimated that they
have 100,000 employees.
The automobile code covers an es-
timated 165,000 factory workers. Al-,
though that code has not yet been;
given formal approv'al, pending a,
hearing to be held within the next
two weeks, wage and working hours,
benefits already are being made oper-
ative.
The code of auto parts manufac-R
turers, employing 125,000, also isc
awaiting formal approval.
Retail merchandising employedt
approximately 110,000 persons who
are under a provisional code.
An accurate tabulation of 5,000
work-wage agreements received up
to Monday night showed that theyj
represented total employment of 43,-
119. The later estimate of 100,000
employees is based upon the addi-
tional 8,500 agreements received.
Every county in the State is rep-
resented in the hugepile of agree-
ments in the Department of Com-
merce office.

Sellars Talks
On Socialisin
And Fascism
Declares That Organized,
Planned Capitalism Also
Is Possible
U. S. Has Become A
Social Experiment
Accuses Hitler Of Attract-
,ing Helpers By Playing
Upon Their Hatreds
Socialism versus Fascism - the
great struggle of today for dominance
of the world is between these two
widely divergent political and eco-
nomic movements, according to Prof.
Roy Wood Sellars, who spoke yester-
day afternoon on "The Radical
Theories of Today." -
"There is one other direction the
world may take," he said. "An or-
ganized, planned Capitalism is pos-
sible-but will Capitalism achieve
that end?"
"Not long ago, Lloyd George listed
Italy, Germany and America as the
great experiments of the present
day," he continued. "We were prob-
ably rather surprised to be told that,
but the truth is that the United
States has become a social experi-
menter under the stress of circum-
stances, and under the guidance of
a liberal president."
The chief disagreement between
Socialism and Fascism is that So-
cialism proposed to base its social
planning on the democratic principle
of a classless people, while Fascism
demands a strong "corporate state"
to dictate to a society in which class
distinctions are fostered.
Professor Sellars traced the history
of socialism from ancient times to its
final definition by Karl -Marx as a
materialistic philosophy, with a thor-
ough-going program, and described
disagreement between Socialists and
Communists which has arisen from
the Menshevist-Bolshevist split in
Russia.
"Special conditions in Italy gave
rise to Fascism there," he stated.
"Young men of the middle class, of
whom Mussolini was the logicalc
leader following his expulsion froml
the Socialist party, banded together,
to combat a wave of labor uprisings,
and were able to seize control. The
Fascists claimed to have saved Italy
from Communism, but it is more1
likely that that movement was al-
ready on the wane. At all events, the
Socialists characteristically hesitated
to assume responsibility, while Mus-
solini did not."
The Fascist idea of a dictatorial
state in which the individual is only
a cell in society and all business and
labor disputes are supervised by the
government ,attracted Adolf Hitler,
and after his unsuccessful Bavarian
revolution he was able to form the
National Socialist Party, Professor
Sellars said. Hitler attracted the
German middle classes, the old im-
perial military, and the laborer by
playing upon their various hatreds.
"The Nazis are anti-republican, anti-
Jewish, anti-Versailles Treaty, anti-
Marxian, and anti-international. You
can get the best propaganda by ap-
pealing to the emotions and allowing
everybody his pet peeve," he said.
"Hitler's problem is that his party's
aims are all negative," he stated,
"and that since the Nazis cannot
unite on a positive program a coun-
ter-revolution in the ranks is pos-
sible."

MORE COOL WEATHER COMING
Several more days of relief from
the extreme heat of recent weeks was
forecast for this part of the State
yesterday by the United States me-
teorologist in Detroit, with the pos-
sibility of scattered showers today.

Roosevelt Approves Plan
To Bring Fleet Up To Its
Treaty Strength
HYDE PARK, Aug. 2.-(A)-Presi-
dent Roosevelt tonight approved
plans of the navy for construction of
21 new warships in the $238,000,000
building program.
The President carefully analyzed
bids recently received by the navy!
an'd the allotment decided upon by
the commanders. His approval sig-
naled an immediate start on -work
providing jobs for thousands in gov-
ernment and private shipyards.
Admiral William Standley, chief
of naval operations, and Rear Ad-
miral Emery Land, chief of construc-
tion, brought the naval construction
program to the summer White House
by seaplane.
Mr. Roosevelt talked the plans
over with his naval chieftains and
after giving his approval left with
them the formal announcement of
assignment to' yards for construc-
tion of the ships.
The start of America's huge naval
construction comes just after word
from Japan of the start of a build-
ing program there.
Mr. Roosevelt's ship building plans
comes under the public 'works' pro-
gram and is intended to give the
American fleet the strength it is
allowed under existing naval limita-
tion agreements.
Both Republicans and Democrats
in Congress have urged that the
American fleet be built up to the
terms allowed by the London agree-
ment.
About $46,000,000 is to be expend-
ed this year and a total of $238,-
000,000 over three years.

U.S. To Let
Distilleries
Get Ready
Government To Assure A
Large Liquor Supply If
Repeal Goes Through
Survey Will Cover
Brewing Facilities
Plants May Be Rebuilt For
Fall Without Licenses, is
Federal Ruling
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.--The Gov
ernment is quietly surveying the
whisky producing possibilities of ex-
isting distilleries to provide a produc-
tion of upwards of 30,000,000 gallons
a year, should repeal become a reality
next November. A survey of facilities
throughodt the country is being given
to the construction of distilleries.,
The Bureau of Industrial Alcohol,
which at the moment controls whisky
production, has informed' all pros-
pective distillers that they may re-
build their plants without licenses--
simply by registration with the
Treasury Department.
In the last few months, dozens of
those who are building or who are
planning to equip new whisky plants
have consulted Treasury officials so
that the new stills will be designed
and built according to specification.
and in .accord with Government re-
quirements to protect revenues. A
Government permit to manufacture
whisky will be.granted only when, in
the construction of the plant, pre-
scribed safeguards have been taken
to insure payment of internal reve-
nue.
Seven Distilleries Running
Large distilling plants will be in
the areas most productive of the
liquor before prohibition --Pennsyl-
vania, Kentucky, Illinois and Mary-
land.
Seven plants are now licensed-to
manufacture whisky for medicinal
purposes. They are A. P. Spitael, Inc.,
Louisville; American Medicinal Spir-
its Corp., Louisville; H. S. Barton,
Owensboro, Ky.; George T. Stagg Co.,
Frankfort, Ky.; American Medicinal
Spirits Corps., Baltimore; A. Over-
holt and Co.,.Bradford, Pa., and Jos.
S. Finch & Co., Schenley, Pa.
These institutions resumed distill-
ing in 1929 when the stock of medici-
nal whisky reached a low level. In
that year the Treasury Department
authorized them to replenish the de-
pleted medicinal stocks in bonded
warehouses at the rate of 1,500,000
gallons a year. They produced this
on a quota basis, with each distillery
being allowed a percentage of the
total.
Medical Sale Loosened
With the loosening of restrictions
on sale of medicinal liquor by drug
stores and confidence that repeal was
approaching, the Government, it was
revealed today, has authorized this
product to be boosted to 3,000,000
gallons. Before the end of the year
it is likely that the limit will be taken
off entirely and that the seven dis-
tilleries will be sent to their maxi-
mum production. This will probably,
run well in excess of 30,000,000 gal
lons.
The United States now has 13,854,-
00.0 gallons of whisky in bond, of
which only 4,600,000 is old whisky
This liquor has been in concentra-
tion warehouses for from 14 to. 15

years. The rest on hand represents
9,254,000 gallons of new whisky as
shown by the original gauge.
