Erect 'War' Communication Lines

Of The

(From The Associated Press)
Detroit-Bob-Lo Swim
Attempt Fails
DETROIT, Aug. 12.-(/P)-The
attempt of Sergt. Frank C. Gas-
dorf to float and swin 22 miles
down the Detroit River to Bob-Lo
Island ended three miles short of
the goal today when the 347-
pourd "one-man navy" of the po-
lice department was seized by a
Colleagues in the convoy boat
were too winded after hoisting
Gasdorf aboard to comment, but
they implied that the floating
sergeant's sense of showmanship
may have been his undoing.
Gasdorg, clad in a coat of leaf
lard, drifted easily with the cur-
rent from 7:30 a.m. until mid-
afternoon, when he neared Grosse
He. Many of the residents were
observed to be following his prog-
ress with binoculars, and Gasdorf
shifted from floating speed into
a spirited dog paddle.
"Don't go showing off and tir-
ing yourself out," warned Patrol-
man Gerald Beckhousen, member
of the rowboat crew whose duty it
was to feed Gasdorf his cubes of
sugar and quarters of orange.
"I could keep this up forever,"
said Gasdorf.
Almost within sight of Bob-Lo
Island the long-distance dunk
ended abruptly as the one-man
navy suddenly began to list to
port, the muscles of his leg knot-
ted by the cramp. He finished
the trip in the boat.
Owens And Cunningham
Star In Track Meet
BOCHUM, Germany, Aug. 12.
-(P)-Jesse Owens, star of the
United States Olympic track
team, tonight equalled the world
100-meter dash record of 10.3
but disappointed 8,000 spectators
by broadjumping only 7.02 meters
(23 feet 3/8 inch) and losing to
Wilhelm Liechum of Germany,
who jumped 7:25 meters (23 feet
9 7/16 inches) in an international
track meet.
Flashing Olympic speed despite
his third straight night of barn-
storming, Jesse outraced two Ger-
mans, Gerd Hornsberger and
Erich Borghmeyer by two and
three yards in the 100. Bunta
Suzuki of Japan was fourth.
Glenn Cunningham of Law-
rence, Kans., runner-up in the
Olympic mile, won the 1,500 me-
ters in 4:00.2.. He was a stride
ahead of Friedrich Schaumburg
of Germany.
Terre Haute Professor
Killed In Crash
BRUTUS, Aug. 12.-()-Prof.
F. W. Higgins of Terre Haute,
Ind., was killed and three persons
were injured late today in a col-
lision of two automobiles at an
intersection here. Prof. Higgins
has been on a vacation with Mrs.
Higgins at Yoeman's Landing on
Burt Lake.
The injured are Dr. and Mrs.
Steven Johnson of Pellston, and
Mrs. Harry Densmore of the Burt
Lake resort.
Black Legion Probe
To End In 10 Days
PONTIAC, Aug. 12.-(P)-The
grand jury investigation of the
Black Legion in Oakland County
may end in ten days, Assistant
Attorney General Buell A. Doelle
reported today.
Several witnesses remain to be
questioned before the one-man
grand jury.

The examination of Police
Berg. Walter Pierce on charges
of helping burn a workers' educa-
tion camp in 1933 was postponed
for a month.

Members of the 130th infantry are shown near Pearl, Mich., erecting
telephone equipment at headquarters to establish communications with
regiments in the front lines as they engage in "war" maneuvers. They
are "defending" Chicago from "invaders" from Pittsburgh.

W. E. Roth writes me as follows:
"I am enclosing a cover from the lat-
est catalog of the Central-Camera Co.,
on which they notify their customers
of new conditions. This statement
contradicts the one you made on Aug.
11. Who's wrong?" The answer;
Nobody is wrong. My statement was
to the effect that the import duties
on German cameras are again at the
old rate of 20 per cent. The catalog
page says that this new act will nec-
esitate an. immediate price increase.
The conflict is due to the fact that my
statement appeared in a newspaper,
within a few hours after I had written
it; while the catalog bears the date
July 20. The 45 pei cent tariff that I
referred to Was in effect about one
month. The Central catalog did not
say that the tax would stay in effect
forever, nor did anyone else. And this
brings up a matter that I would like
to discuss with you.
I firmly believe that every Ameri-
can citizen should do all in his power
to support home industry. And I
am not at all inclined to approve of
the policies of the present German
government. But until American
manufacturers wake up and start to
build equipment that is equal to some
imported equipment all expert pho-
tographers will have to buy imported
Unless you wish to let your pa-
triotic feelings prevent you from
working with the finest equipment
you can find no other way. I do not
say that equipment has to be bet-
ter simply because it is German, like-
wise I do not wish to imply that all
American equipment is inferior. But
there are certain types of equipment
made in Germany that are far super-
ior, and the American manufacturers
seem content to sit back and offer no
substitute at all, or very poor ones. In
business only the fittest survive, so
those of us who depend on photo-
graphy for a living must insist on the
best cameras and lenses.jThe point
that I am driving at is just this: A
protective tariff is a good thing when
Syou have something to protect, but
in the case of cameras we have noth-
ing that can be considered as com-
petition to the imported equipment,
so the import duty is simply a burden
on the shoulders of the photographer.
I am not a politician and I am not
trying to abolish the import duty. I
am only trying to put over the idea,
that expert photographers the world
over recognize the German camera as
betterand as an American citizen I
am complaining, because we Ameri-
cans have to admit defeat.

Bridges, Owen
Star As Tigers
Defeat Indians
Tiger Pitching Ace Wins
15th Start As Infielder
Collects Three Hits
(Continued from Pace 1)
Bridges' single brought him in with
the Tigers' fourth run.
The first ball Bridges pitched in the
Cleveland seventh went sailing over
the right field wall for Trosky's hom-
er. Tommy then walked Weatherly,
but got out of trouble as Sullivan's
grounder struck Weatherly in the
side, putting him out, and Vosmik
flied out and Knickerbocker grounded
Goslin's single, a walk to Simmons,
and Owen's double brought in two
Tiger runs in the eighth after two
were out, and finished Hudlin's work
for the day.
The Indians' futile rally in the last
of the ninth started with Trosky's
single to right field. He went to
third on Weatherly's double to left,
and both scored when Sullivan's
double bounced high off the right field
screen. Walker caught Vosmik's long
fly, and then Bridges settled down to
force Knickerbocker to foul out, and
pinchhitter Uhle to pop to Gehringer.

It is easy to exchange your burned out lamps for new ones at any

Detroit Edison office.

There is no charge for lamp renewal service.

Get A Headstnrt

(The cost of lamp renewals is included in your electric rate.) If your
BURNED OUT lamps are not the sizes you wish, we will gladly
exchange them for other sizes. The only requirement is this: When
you exchange lamps, bring with you your most recent electric bill
for identification.
This rule requiring identification through your electric bill is partly
for your protection, since it keeps others who are not Detroit Edison
customers from getting lamps which you pay for in your electric rate.
Also, this practice discourages wasteful lamp renewals and provides
the Company with the necessary records on lamps passed out.
The Detroit Edison Company will gladly advise you on the correct
sizes of lamps for your needs. Keeping your sockets filled with
lamps will mean greater comfort and convenience in your home,
and will insure adequate light for safe seeing.
Note: Lamps are renewed without extra charge only for
residential and commercial customers paying lighting rates
