Dems. Meet To
St. Louis Attorney Says
Every Effort To Be Made
To Beat Roosevelt
DETROIT, Aug. 6.-()-A group
of men once high in the councils of
the Democratic party gathered here
tonight for the avowed purpose of de-
termining the most effective method
of opposing the reelection of Presi-
From preliminary discussions, two
courses of action-the establishment
of an anti-New Deal Democratic
ticket and an effort to swing Demo-
cratic votes to Governor Landon-
emerged to be given prominence in a
formal statement by Sterling E. Ed-
munds, St. Louis attorney who called
the meeting for Friday.
Interviewed at the same time, how-
ever, Edmunds was quick to empha-
size that these were only suggestions
and to add that the 30 to 40 whom he
expected to attend would canvass all
possibilities in a closed session "where
every man will be free to express his
Among those who will attend he
enumerated: James A. Reed, former
Democratic Senator from Missouri;
Joseph B. Ely, former Democratic
Governor of Massachusetts; Bain-
bridge Colby, secretary of state in
the administration of Woodrow Wil-
son; Daniel F. Cohalen of New York,
a former judge and long-time sup-
porter of Alfred E. Smith; Henry
Breckinridge who opposed President
Roosevelt in several Democratic presi-
dential primaries; Thomas F. Cald-
wallader who managed Breckinridge's
Maryland campaign; John Henry
Kirby, Texas Democrat, William A.
Comstock, former Democratic gov-
ernor of Michigan and Judge Eugene
C. Bonniwell, twice Democratic nom-
inee for governor of Pennsylvania.
Alfred E. Smith, who with Colby,
Ely, Reed and Cohalen joined in a
plea to the Democratic convention to
"put aside" President Roosevelt has
announced he will not attend.
The Detroit developments came on
a day relatively quiet politically.
Asked to define the purpose of the
Detroit meeting Edmunds said it was
to see what "Democrats who believe
as we do can do to defeat Mr. Roose-
velt." For 30 years ,he said, he has
been a student of constitutional law,
adding that he was interested pri-
marily,in "stopping the absorption of
the powers of the states through leg-.
islative construction ratler than
through an amendment" tothe con-
Predicts Federal Despotism
"The New Deal will establish a
centralized Federal despotism unless
these policies are checked," he added.
Former Senator Reed, among the
early arrivals ,was reluctant to dis-
cuss the meeting.
Asked for his definition of the pur-
pose of the gathering, Reed shotback:
"I know what I want to do. I want
to do what I can to preserve the con-
stitution and the independence of the
courts and stop wasting the people's
He said the conference idea began
with "some of us discussing whether
it wouldn't be a good thing to get to-
gether and talk things over." Through
publicity, Reed added, the "thing has
gotten out of hand."
The original idea, he said, was to
have a meeting of five or six people.
"We've tried to keep it down to a
conference," he said. "There was no
idea of holding a convention, al-
though I suppose we could have got-
ten thousands here for a convention."
The possibility of a larger meeting
later was held out however, in Ed-
munds' formal statement, issued after
a conference with Reed.

ishly for the plane. They discovered
it, a scattered, tangled mass of wreck-
age, early today on a farm four miles
north of the airport.
All of the victims, except one, had
been thrown from their seats into
the plowed field. Apparently all were

and a light fog, but clear conditions
were reported north of Springfield,
From the time of the take-off until
th crash, no word was heard from
the crew, although the $50,000 all-
metal Lockheed-electra monoplane
was equipped with the latest type 2-
The operator at the field gave Zier
a call at 10:02 p,m., but there was no
answer. Zier's watch, smashed dur-
ing the crash, was stopped exactly at
A few minutes after the plane took
off, Ben Knoebbe, a farmer living
near the field, said he saw its red
and green riding lights and heard its
"He was very low," Knoebbe said,
"and I was surprised to see him start
to the left-the West-as he got to
my place. He was so very low as he
passed me that he grazed two tall
trees near my house, very lightly, and
knocked leaves from them.'
As the plane swung on in a wide
circle, it was sighted by Ralph L.
Sharp, Fairfield, O., vacationing on
a farm a mile north of Knoe1be's.
. "When I first saw the plane, it was
very low, about 50 feet from the
ground," Sharp related. "As I
watched, it made a steep bank to the
left and passed beyond my vision over
a hill. Then I heard a terrible crash."
From marks on the harrowed
ground, it appeared the left wing
struck first and the plane turned end
over end, disintegrating as it car-
ried 150 yards down the field.
Examination of the plane, reduced
to twisted junk, showed the landing
gear was retracted when the ship
fell, indicating Zier was not attempt-
ing to land when the crash came.
A succinct comment came from
Carleton Putnam, president of Chi-
Cago and Southern, in announcing
the accident. He said:
"It was one of those things that
can't happen but still did."

From the nature of articles found
in the graves, the burials were made
about 250 years ago. The relics in-
clude beads and other things given by
the early fur traders, as well as sev-
eral silver Jesuit crosses made by
Robert Cruikshank, a noted Montreal
silversmith. Attention was attracted
to the region by the number of skele-
tons unearthed by builders of cot-f
tages along the shore.
Though most of the skeletons weret
buried after the coming of the white
men to Michigan, Dr. Emerson F.
Greenman has discovered nearby two
graves in which no white traders
goods were found. These may have
been "pre-contact" aborigines, al-
though they certainly do not date
back as far as the skeletons of the
builders of the Lapeer County stock-
ades, discovered last year. The lat-
ter died approximately 800 years ago.
In War Games
FORT KNOX, Ky., Aug. 6.-()-
Uncle Sam's newest engines of war
went into action on the rough terrain
of this military reservation today,
striking hard and effectively against
superior numbers in the first phase of
second army war practice maneuvers.
Shock troops of the "red" forces,
armored combat cars, mechanized
and motorized artillery and motorized
infantry with some 2,000.-men, struck
swiftly at advance columns of 20,-
000 "blue" troops in several inde-
cisive engagements. Tonight, the
reds had inflicted severe theoretical
damage, with blank ammunition, but
had withdrawn southward with the
apparent intention of remobilizing for
Blue infantrymen meanwhile con-
tinued to advance southward in four
columns late today, supported by
their own artillery. Principal dam-
age to their forces occurred when the
reds theoretically wiped out advance
scouts of the 123rd Cavalry, Ken-
tucky National Guard, at the day's
first engagament at New Stithton,
and during heavy banging of guns
when the opposing forces "made con-
tact" at McClellan ridge, east of Fort

Slaps Obsolete Methods
HOUGHTON, Mich., Aug. 6.--()-
Grover C. Dillman, former Michigan
State Highway Commissioner and
Welfare Director, formally accepted
the presidency of the Michigan Col-
lege of Mining and Technology today
at elaborate inauguration ceremonies
staged in the new amphidrome as the
highlight of the College's 50th anni-
After reviewing the history of
Michigan Tech and presenting a
resume of its achievements and de-
velopment to one of the world's fore-
most engineering educational insti-
tutions, President Dillman struck
sharply at many of the present day
methods he said he considers obso-
"This is a period of changing social
and economic conditions," he declared
before the several thousand alumni
and guests. "We no longer have a
western frontier that for genera-
tions was the 'safety valve' in times
of depressions. The present genera-
tion finds life more complex and
youth is faced with many false lead-
ers. The young man has more de-
cisions to make. His post-war years
have been difficult to interpret and in
recent years he probably has been
faced with want and has been tempt-
ed by false guides; yet he has been
keeping his feet on the ground about
as well as his elders. These are the
young men who are now being en-
rolled in college. They need guid-
ance, not sympathy; they must be
given every opportunity to develop
