Addresses War Veterans'
Final Banquet At State
LANSING, Aug. 17.--()-Festivi-
ties of the American Legion's State
Convention drew to a close tonight
after reaching their peak in the an-
nual parade and banquet.
State officials and their guests sat
in a reviewing stand before the cap-
itol through a hot afternoon as gayly
uniformed drum and bugle corps ac-
companied by sections of the Legion's
State Department and Auxiliary
marched by.
Governor Fitzgerald headed the of-
ficial family in the stands and spoke
at the Legion banquet tonight. He
enlisted Legion aid and urged its
members to stand squarely behind
the cause of organized government.
The Governor compared the crea-
tive efforts of the Legion with ac-
tivities of the recently exposed "Black
Legion" and said in part:
Stands Behind Government
"It is reassuring, too, to know that
there stands behind the forces of or-
ganized government, in times of un-
certainty and unrest, an organiza-
tkon such as yours, pledged at all
times to uphold the laws of the land,
as enacted by the people.
"I see no danger of any widespread
defiance of constituted authority, but
if it ever should raise its head, I
know we wouldn't be acting as Demo-
crats or Republicans any more, but
as Americans."
The convention will close tomor-
row with election of officers and thel
acceptance of committee reports. Le-
gion members already are laying
plans for the national convention in
Cleveland, September 21-24.
During the morning session the Le-
gion heard speakers urge closer co-
operation to combat radicalism and
subversive activities. Leslie P. Kef-
gen, of Bay City, former State Com-
mander and Chairman of the Amer-
icanism Committee, urged all zone
vice-commanders to push an Amer-
icanism program this year.
Harry W. Colmery, of Topeka,
Kans., la candidate for National Le-
gion commander, told convention del-
egates the Legion must lead the fight
against subversive activities and in
behalf of organized government.
Must Fight as Individuals
"The Legion presents the best op-
portunity to oppose those forces
seeking to overthrow government,"
Colmery declared. "Each of you must
fight as individuals and as members
of an organization.
Walter S. Reynolds, chairman of
the State Committee on subversive
activities, declared he favored a bill
prohibiting inclusion of the name of
the Communist party on the ballot.
He insisted the party advocates over-
throw of organized government by
force and for that reason sacrifices
its privileges.
Supporters of Guy M. Cox, of Iron
River, candidate for State Com-
mander, were insistent his election
would be a formality without opposi-
tion. The Legion will vote tomorrow
afternoon on a State Commander to
succeed David V. Addy, of Detroit.
Approximately 150 resolutions are
awaiting approval or rejection of the
convention.. Many Legion members
who came to Lansing to witness the
parade and participate in activities
were checking out of hotels tonight.
15,000 Battle
Forest Blazes

In Duluth Area
Continued Drought Causes
New Peril, Endangering
Minnesota Cities
ST. PAUL, Aug. 17.-(P)-Fifteen
thousand forest fire fighters sought
today to maintain control of con-
flagrations as E. V. Willard, State
Conservation official, warned failure
to accomplish this over a wide area
would endanger their lives.
The situation was fraught with
new peril since rain, predicted for the
last weekend, did not fall in the fire
zones and several new blazes started
while others broke out afresh., One
fire alone burned over 2,000 acres in
the last 24 hours.
Willard said there was "grave dan-
ger" of the flames spreading if a
high wind developed. Wind blew
smoke from the fires into the city of
Duluth today.
The United States Weather Bureau
forecast showers tonight or tomor-
row with only moderate south tc
southwest winds. Meanwhile, how-
ever, settlers in the McGrath area
packed their belongings for fligh

Of Wage Level
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17.--OP)--
Niles Anderson, chairman of the
Works Progress Administration Labor
Relations board, asked Harry L. Pier-
son, Michigan State WPA Director
today, to give him a report on wheth-
er the prevailing wage rate for labor
in Detroit was 50 or 60 cents an hour.
Anderson asked for the informa-
tion by telephone after leaders of the
WPA labor union in Detroit asserted
the prevailing scale in Detroit was 60
cents while WPA was paying only 50
The demands for the Detroit union

In Hotel Death
Mrs. Trainmell Is Found
Murdered In Chicago ;
Theft Possible Motive
CHICAGO, Aug. 17.-(P)-Names in
a black notebook and a laundry tag
today gave police investigators what
they considered their principal clues
for a quick solution of the hotel slay-
ing of Mrs. Mary Louise Trammell,
24, found brutally beaten to death in
her third floor room Sunday.
The notebook, dropped recently by
a Negro prowler who was frightened
away while attempting to enter a
man's room in the (State) hotel.

her husband, Thomas, railroad din-

from a trip to Michigan. .She had
been beaten about the head with a
blunt instrument. Investigators said
she also apparently had been crim-
inally assaulted. Nearby on a chair
lay her open purse, some of its con-
tents scattered on the floor.
Because no money was found in
the purse the police theorized that
robbery was the motive, but they
added they were not overlooking the
fact that killer may have simulated
theft in an attempt to confuse the
The notebook and laundry tag were

a "burly Negro" crawling through the
window of his room from the fire
escape. He frightened him away and
later saw the notebook on the fire

bearing a name and information
about horse racing, as well as the list
of 25 names.
