prime names in the industrial list
had their innings, too.
In the commodity markets, grains

Virtually all the other commodi-

The University's forest preserve
contains about 3,000 acres. It has
been used for botanical and other
research purposes.
Elswhere in the upper peninsula,
subsidence of a high wind enabled
fire fighters to bring most of the
several score forest and: brush Iires
under control.
The Chase S. Osborne Preserve was
given to the University in October,
1929, by the former governor. It is
composed of 3,035 acres of land on
Sugar and Dutch Islands in the St.
Mary's River.

21st To Ratify
PHOENIX, Ariz., Aug. 8.-
With the Drys coming out only
weakly to oppose the ratification
of the Twenty-first Amendment
to the Constitution, partial re-
turns in the state election to-
night showed conclusively that
Arizona would be the twenty-
first state to vote for the abolition
of the Eighteenth Amendment.
PHOENIX, Ariz., Aug. 8.-()-
Governor B. B. Moeur joined thous-
ands of other Arizonians today in
voicing opposition to the 18th
Amendment, voting to make this
state the twenty-fist to ratify repeal.
"I am personally dry," the gover-
nor said after he cast his ballot in
the statewide election, "but I sup-
ported the mandate of President
Roosevelt and the government."
Prohibition leaders conceded there
was no chance for Arizona to be-
come the first state to register its
opposition to the twenty-first or re-
peal amendment. The, state's pro-
hibition enforcement laws were re-
moved from the statutes by a vote
of more than two to one last Novem-
ber. In today's election there was
no slate of prohibitionists delegates
on the ballot, and citizens favoring
retention of the 18th Amendment
were forced to. write in the nanes
of their choices.
Totalling of the ballots was ex-
pected to show that 50 per cent or
fewer of the state's 153,000 registered
electors had visited the polls before
their closing at 6. p. m. Mountain
Standard Time.
