Knox Repeats

IONIA, Aug. 19.-(]P)-Mich-
igan's state prison commission
decided today to try out Dr. Da-
vid A. Phillips' plan for classifi-
cation and segregation of in-
mates at the Southern Michigan
prison for a six months' period.
At the end of that time, Paul
Chase of Hillsdale, commission
chairman said, the prison board
plans to submit results of the
trial to the State Legislature.
The commission heard the
plan, developed by Dr. Phillips,
state psychiatrist recently ap-
pointed, in some detail. It calls
for mental and physical exam-
ination in order to classify in-
dividuals as they enter prison.
Results of the tests would deter-
mine whether the prisoners
would be placed in the moron
class, insane, those who may re-
cover from criminal instincts, or
other classifications.
Inmates of moron classifica-
tion will be placed in 'a separate
department as will those partly
insane. The plan proposes to give
the state a record of each case
and to malle a place for those
who can be corrected.
It embraces an observation
building for new inmates, and
employment of a psychiatristaat
each of the state's three penal
institutions. It will be worked
out in the Southern Michigan
Prison in cooperation with War-
den Harry H. Jackson.
Leslie Kefgen of Bay City, sec-
retary of the prison board, de-
scribed the plan as not yet fully
completed, but said a full re-
port may be made at the comn-
mission's next meeting at Jack-
The commission approved the
appointment of Leon Larson of
Ironwood as educational director.
He was recommended by Warden
Walter F. Gries.
Following their meeting, the
commission members were guests
of the Ionia free fair.
Congress May Replenish
Relief Funds
HYDE PARK, Aug. 19.-GP)-
A Congressional appropriation to
replenish relief funds, which may
be drained of $5,000,000 monthly
to give WPA jobs to drought suf-
ferers, was forecast today by
Harry L. Hopkins, WPA admin-
istrator, after a conference with
President Roosevelt.
Hopkins told reporters the $5,-
000,000 monthly would be need-
ed to provide job relief ulti-
mately for 120,000 to 150,000
persons in the drought regions.
"The money," he said, "is cor-'
ing out of the new relief act and
I think the drought will have to
be adjusted by congressional ap-
propriation in the long run."
Already, Hopkins asserted,
WPA has put 90,000 individuals
to work on farm-to-market
roads, dams and similar projects.
They are being paid an average
of $40 a month, he added.
The 90,000, the WPA chieftian,
said are in addition to persons
being helped with grants and
feed ad seed loans by the re-
settlement administration.
Secretary " Morgenthau and
acting Director Daniel W. Bell of
the budget bureau, Hopkins said,
attended the drought parley at
the summer white house to talk
over the question of financing
drought relief.
W. Frank Persons, director of
the Federal Employment Service,
and Walter Burr, assistant di-
rector, also sat at the conference

Preparing for his trip to the
drought states starting Tuesday
night from Washington, Mr.
Roosevelt earlier in the day
looked into banking conditions in
the dust bowl area with the as-
sistance of Leo P. Crowley,
chairman of the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation.

Chicago Police
Launch Drive
Agairnst Crime
Loiterers Are Taken Into
Custody; Finger Prints
Of ManyRecorded
CHICAGO, Aug. 19.-()-Bent up-
on preventing the possibility of furth-
er crimes of violence such as the
hotel killing Saturday of Mrs. Mary
Louis Trammell, 24, former Knox-
ville, Tenn., stenographer, the Chi-
cago police today began rounding up
all loiterers found in parks in the
More than 100 men, 50 of them
Negroes, were taken into custody.
Many were finger-printed.
Meanwhile police investigators
said they hoped by intensive ques-
tion of Rufo Swain, 27 year old scar-
faced athletic Negro, to determine
whether he commtted at least one
other of Chicago's recent hotel kill-
ings-that of Mrs. Florence Thomp-
son Castle.
Mrs. Castle, 24, a night club beauty,
was slain in much the same man-
ner as Mrs. Trammell, to whose kill-
ing Captain Daniel Gilbert of the
state's attorney's police said the burly
Negro confessed. Both Mrs. Castle
andgMrs. Trammell were beaten f a-
Because of the similarity of the
two crimes and because Mrs. Castle's
son, James, 7, told police a "big black
man" killed his mother the night of
June 29, the investigators planned
to compare Swain's handwriting with
the cryptic words-"Black Legion
Game"-written with lipstick on the
mirror of the bureau of Mrs. Castle's
The detectives also sought to ascer-
tain Swain's connection, if any, with
the hotel killing of Mrs. Lillian
Guild, 59, beaten to death May 29 in
the Y. W. C. A. hotel.

Harry Allen, 56, who came out of
the mine about 45 minutes before
the fire broke out said, "I don't think
there is a chance for them to be
rescued alive now."
"I noticed the air had been bad
for about an hour before I left the
mine and I told Sexton I was sure
the fan had stopped."
No word or signal came from the
entombed men.
Eben Jones, deputy state mine in-
spector, said he believed the fire

His Attack On
New Deal Laws
Tells Merchants 'Business
Of Country Can't Be Run
From Washington'
(Continued from Page 1)
He said it should meet the stand-
ards of "simplicity, economy, and
certainty," and continued:
"For antime, the American people
were hypnotizedi oy the -,aea thlat
the government could do everything,
from solving the problem of poverty
to growing trees in a desert. But
they did not stay hypnotized. They
have decided that a government
which makes even little pigs flee for
their lives is a peculiar kind."
The Republican Vice-Presidential
candidate told the merchants their
service as distributors was "not clear-
ly understood everywhere," saying
"many * * * see the merchant as a
mere. unproductive middleman." He
called this "economic antagonism,"
and added:
"Not so long ago a high govern-
ment official urged a political alli-
ance between workers and farmers to
take over the government. Such a
proposal is monstrous. The foment-
ing of class hatred * * * makes us a
nation of armed camps, snarling and
fighting to obtain special advantages
from government."
He criticized also the President's'
re-employment agreement of 1933
saying that had it been enforced it
"almost certainly would have closed
up half the small shops, small bus-
inesses and small industries."
Only the big fellows could have
lived under it," he said.
In demanding economy, Knox as-
serted that "half of the people will
be supporting the other half" if
costs of national and local govern-
ment follow the rising scale of the
last six years. He said the Roose-
velt administration's social security
legislation would require the federal
government "to go into the intimate
private lives" of some 30,000,000 cit-
Inurging "certainty," he declared
that "philosophy of 'try-anything-
once' is not sound even for a tin-
horn gambler," adding:
"For a government of a great na-
tion it is intolerable."
CALLANDER, Ont., Aug. 19.-(iP)-
The Dionne quintuplets, movie ac-
tresses again, donned blue bathing
sults and sun bonnets to match to-
day, as "shooting" started on "Re-
union," their second full-length film.
They were filmed about their house
and in their bathing pool.

In a recent motion picture a sign
is shown over a studio entrance that
reads "Miracle Pictures, Inc. If it's
a good picture it's a Miracle." There
is however, a method of producing
pictures that are really miracles. A
camera with double extension bel-
lows or a set of supplementary lenses
is needed as the whole process is
simply the photographing of small
objects at close range. This form of
photography is known as Table Top
On any table top you can, with a
little ingenuity, create any impos-
sible picture and then, photograph
it. A tennis ball properly illuminated
will make a swell moon, and the
picture may even be better than one
through a telescope. Model cars can
produce wrecks more realistic thant
the real thing. The baby's playbox
should produce a wealth of subjects
for table top work. A visit to the
dime store always provides you with
sets that would rival those used in
Hollywood. (Maybe).
Snow-covered mountains can be
made from table salt, toy soldiers and
accessories can produce scenes from
the World War. And there are a
million other things like this that I
could think of, but that is your
problem. Use the old bean and fig-
ure out just what you can do: it is
a peach of a way to spend a rainy
afternoon, and in view of the fact
that Mazda light can be placed where
you want it, it is to be preferred for
this work. So tlis should be classed
as a branch of night photography.
F i al Meeting Of
German Table Held
Members of the German Table said
"Auf Wiedersehn" until next sum-
mer at a banquet given Tuesday eve-
ning, Aug. 18, in the Grand Rapids
Room of the League. Prof. and Mrs.
H. W. Nordmeyer, Prof. and Mrs.
Fred B. Wahr, and Prof. J. A. C.
Hildner numbered among the 25
During the course of the banquet,
which brought to a close the lun-
cheon-and dinner - meetings at
which students conversed in Ger-
man, Professor Hildner was present-
ed with a charcoal drawing of him-
self and a baton with which to lead
German songs. Also presented with
a gift were Miss G. T. Ochs and Mr.
M. F. Reck.
Beside singing German songs, the
German Table members were also
entertained by magician tricks per-
formed by Mr. Bierbrich, several se-
lections from a quartet, and a skit
directed by Miss Ochs. Arthur H.
Grossman acted as toastmaster.

At 'Scare' Drive
Attacks GOP Campaign As
Effort To 'Break Down
Faith OfPeople'

people do not care to repeat that
Pointing to the recovery of the
of the automobile industry, Farley
said, "I do not suppose there is
any American city that has leaped
from the depth of depression to a
comfortable level of prosperity more
definitely and to a greater extent
than Detroit.
"However, what is true of that
great Michigan city is equally true
of every industrial community be-
tween the oceans. For that reason
the story I am now telling is just
as applicable to Bridgeport, Conn.,
for example, or Pittsburgh, or South
Bend, or Chicago or any other great
manufacturing and industrial me-
tropolis, as it is to Detroit.
"Each one of the great manu-
facturing centers was flat on its back
a little over three years ago and
each one of them is today alert, alive
and full of the thrill that goes with
renewed activity and the happy pros-
pect of still greater prosperity.
"Governor Landon's supporters,"
he charged, "are attempting to alarm
the consuming public and particu-
larly the housekeepers with a wild
story regarding the prices of food,
"Among the other items I have
seen recently in some of the Repub-
lican propaganda bulletins is that a
pound of lamb chops, priced at' 35
cents, had 17 cent taxes, making the
total selling price 52 cents a pound.
"These cooked-up price lists are
being put out by the Republican
headquarters in Chicago, presumably
in cooperation with the Chicago meat
packers. They were formulated by
the Republican brain trust, there,
under the direction of a high-pow-
ered advertising salesman."
"There is no disclosure of how the
17 cents. of taxes is calculated. The
only federal taxes that could apply
are the income taxes."
"In the case of the butcher this
would give us the increase in the
cost of the lamb chop in 1936 over
what it was in 1932 or 1933, a frac-
tion of a cent so small that the
statisticians have not been able to
arrive as yet at the minute figure.
"Presumably, in order to get 17
cents of taxes everything from the
butcher's license fee to the tag on
the family dog must have been count-
ed in.
"With such items, of course, the
administration at Washington has
no more to do than it has with the
velocity of the wind in Chicago."
