tour from leaving here on schedule
yesterday afternoon. The trip was
postponed until next week-end.
Twenty-five students, most of them
from the Graduate School, had al-
ready boarded a Greyhound bus at
1 p. m.-in preparation for the sched-
uled three-day excursion under the
direction of Prof. Laurence M. Gould
of the geology department when a
discrepancy between the driver's
commission and the University order
was discovered, according to Profes-
sor Maurer. The trip was called off
at 2:30 p. m.
The . driver's orders called for a
return trip tonight, whereas the con-
tract with the Greyhound company
stipulated a stop-over until tomor-
row, Professor Maurer said.
Furthermore, the driver had been
ordered to limit side trips at the
Falls to 15 miles, while the agree-
ment with the company called for
unlimited use of the bus there, ac-
cording to Professor Maurer.
Plans were immediately made to
conduct the tour regardless, post-
poning it until next Saturday and
traveling to Niagara Falls by train.
Professor Gould said yesterday that
membes: of .the party took the post-
ponement in good nature and seem-
ed to appreciate the situation.
Under the terms of the driver's
commission it would have been im-
possible for Professor Gould to con-.
dact the excursion in accordance.
with his plans, which were similar
to those of previous years, he said.
The . postponement will make it
necessary to postpone also the ex-
cursion to the General Motors prov-
ing grounds at Milford, scheduled
for July 15. Next Saturday's party
will leave Ann Arbor for the Falls
at 7:05 a. m. and arrive at 2:27 p. m.
The return trip will be made late
Sunday, arriving here a t8:35 a. m.
Monday.

Ann Arbor Temperature
Hits 90.3-Degree High
Ann Arbor weather took another
upward turn yesterday when the
thermometer reached a maximum of
90.3 degrees at 1 p. m. A low of
67.8 had been registered at 7 a. m.,
and the peak had fallen off by 7
p. m. to 83.8, but Associated Press
dispatches which showed local high
temperatures to be part of a heat
wave spreading over the country in-
dicated that prospects for any real
relief were slight, although showers
were expected.
CHEAPER FOOTBALL TICKETS
NORMAN, . Okla.-(IP)-New low
prices, scaling down to 75 cents, will
be in effect for football games at the

Vetoes State Milk
Commission Plan
Accepts Legislation Pro-
viding For Big Cut In
Normal School Budgets
LANSING, July 7.-(A)-More than
a score of bills were signed or vetoed
by Governor Comstock today.
He approved the old-age pension
bill providing for a maximum pay-
ment of $1 a day for indigent per-
sons 70 years of age or over and an
annual head tax on all residents of
the State between the ages of 21 and
70.
The governor vetoed a bill pro-
posing to establish a State milk com-
mission. He held it would set a dan-
gerous precedent to attempt to fix
milk prices by governmental agency.
The proposed law would open a way
for endless litigation, the governor
said.
A bill appropriating $1,427,270 a
year to State normal colleges, a re-
duction of approximately one-third
under appropriatoins of the last
fiscal year was approved. The sep-
arate sums are: Michigan State
Normal, Ypsilanti, $529,262 a year;
Central State Teachers, Mt. Pleas-
ant, $210,602, Western State Teach-
ers College, Kalamazoo, $519,262, and
Northern State Teachers College,
$168,144 a year.
Stocks Surge
To Ne wA
DollarDrops
NEW YORK, July 7.-(P)-Stocks
and many leading commodities, in-
cluding wheat and corn, surged to
new highs in turbulent markets to-
day, but profit-taking eventually
clouded the picture of soaring prices,
although a new 1933 average high
was attained at closing time.
Stocks, in a 7,000,000 share ses-
sion-one of the largest of the cur-
rent rise-finished irregularly high-
er after an excited forenoon advance
of $1 to $4. Wheat lost about a cent
a bushel and corn 1% to 2/ to 2 3-8
cents after both had risen 1 to 2
cents. All wheat deliveriesepenetrat-
ed the dollar mark. Cotton's best
effort was a rise of 50 to 70 cents
a bale; later it subsided and was off
5 cents to $1.15 net.
Traders who use dollar deprecia-
tion as a guide for market policies
saw American currency slump badly.
The British pound sterling spent
much of the day around $4.74, where
it was up about 16 cents, while Eu-
ropean gold units were correspond-
ingly strong.
On the stock exchange, prices
zoomed upward in the morning with
a vigor that put the ticker 26 minutes
in arrears. Profit-takers, however,
began to have their innings around
noon and from then until the late
trading the market was mostly lower.
Horse Runs Away; Halts
At Traffic Light; Is Caught
NEW YORK July 7.-(-)-A milk
wagon horse got bored with the
Great White Way. While his driver
delivered milk to a Broadway rest-
aurant, Teddy galloped away.
But Teddy used his head, accord-
ing to Policeman Kelly.
"The horse turned west on Forty-
seventh St., which is westbound one-
way," Kelly testified. "And I caught
him when he stopped for a traffic
light."

3,000 Crowd League

(By The Associated Press)
Jimmie Mattern, world flier given
up for dead by all but a trusting few,
is safe in Siberia.
From the little trading post of An-
adir, word came today that the avia-
tor who disappeared on June 14
while making the first solo flight
around the world was safe.
The news was dispatched by the
flier himself, relayed across the
wastes of Siberia to Moscow and sent
on from there to his homeland.
"Safe, Anadir, Chukotka, Siberia,"
the message read, and it was signed
"Jimmie Mattern."
"I was confident all the while,"
said the mother.
"I knew he was safe all the time,"
said the wife.
"We always had confidence," said
the backers.
When Mattern's message was re-
ceived the Coast Guard in Washing-
ton disclosed that ever since the flyer-
disappeared the cutter Northland
had been searching Alaskan waters
for him.
Today word was sent to the North-
land of Mattern's safety and Coast
Guard officials expected the cutter
to be in touch with the flyer in a few
hours.
Only or.e mossage was received
from Mattern, and that had taken
two days to be relayed to civilization,
so that no details were known. It was
not known whether he crashed or
was merely forced down or how far
he had to travel to reach the little
trading postfrom which he sent out
his message to the world.
S. J. Sackett and H. B. Jameson,
of Chicago, two of Mattern's backers,
announced that they would aid him
in completing his flight or in financ-
ing another round-the-world journey.
"We always had confidence in
Jimmie," said Jameson. "He had
demonstrated at all times that he's
a cool, heady flyer."
Misfortune had beset Mattern's,
trip at freqeunt intervals, but every
time the plucky pilot, who has been
barnstormer, movie stunt man and
air mail carrier, pulled through to
safety.

DENVER, July 7.-(AO)-A cloud-
burst sent a 20 foot wall of water
roaring down Bear Creek Canyon
into the villages of Idledale and Mor-
rison west of Denver late today,
causing fear for the lives of several
persons. The Denver Post said eight
were believed to have drowned in the
flood.
The water caused extensive dam-
age in both Morrison and Idledale,
a resort town.
Mrs. Clare E. Evans, telephone
operator, told the Associated Press
there had been no reports of deaths
at Morrison, butnbodies of numerous
dead animals had floated through
after the cloudburst struck above
Idledale.
Motorists on the canyon highway
abandoned their cars and fled to
safety to the nearest slope.
A dancehall and other buildings
in Morrison were swept away on the
tide, as also were many summer cot-
tages and cabins.
One man, whose name was not
learned, told C. E. Peinze, Morrison
merchant, that he escaped after be-
ing in the water for thirty minutes,
but had lost his wife and four-year
old child.

Fire May Cause Charter
Of House To Be Revoked
Revocation of Theta Kappa Nu
fraternity's charter may be the re-
sult of financial difficulties which
were brought to a climax by a fire
which occurred in the chapter house
at 818 Hill St. early yesterday morn-
ing. Originating in the basement of
the building, the fire resulted in
damage estimated at more than
$3,000.
When firemen arrived the house
was found to be unoccupied and
they reported having gained no in-
formation as to the cause of the
blaze. Two lines of hose were used
and some difficulty experienced in
controlling the fire which had burned
through a section of the first floor
by the time the equipment arrived.
The roof was also reported as hav-
ing been slightly. damaged. Firemen
fought the conflagration from 5 to
8 a. m. before it was finally ex-
tinguished.

Physicists From Four Foreign
Lands Attend Symposium Here.

U. S. Delegation Saves
Economic Conference
LONDON, July 7.-- (P) - The
United States, followed by virtually
all the world outside the continent
of Europe, pressed forward tonight
under the leadership of Cordell Hull,
American secretary of state, to save
the World Economic Conference from
a downfall which Hull believes would
turn back the clock of civilization at
least 100 years.
The American secretary in private
talks with statesmen of Great Brit-
ain and her dominions, the Scandi-
navian countries, Japan, China and
the neighbor nations of the Western
Hemisphere, fired them.with his
vision of the meaning of failure:
"A word bereft of all co-operative
spirit and with efforts for peace and
disarmament doomed perhaps for
generations."
The result was a lineup against
the continental group, led by the
French, which had sought to aban-
don all efforts to solve monetary
problems with the single exception of
debts.
Word of the 25 to 15 victory in
the sub-committee of the monetary,
which decided to continue discus-
sions on every phase of the confer-
ence agenda, was taken to Hull at
his hotel by Senator James Couzens
of Michigan, the lone' Republican in
the American delegation. It was the
Michigan Senator who spoke out
against the French in the sub-com-
mittee battle and who carried the
brunt of the fight.
The American delegation was ral-
lying behind their chief, and he, with
his colleagues and the members of
the other delegations, began to work
out a concrete program which was
expected to include the raising of
prices and the shortening of hours
of labor.
