CHICAGO, July 6.-(P)-Edward
Freed's surrender for questioning
about the role he played in the life
of Audrey Vallette, convent bred
party girl who was shot to death in
her hotel, left police still seeking
their prime quarry tonight-Freed's
petite wife, Ruth Carmelia.
Captain Andrew Barry said Freed
admitted he was the "Eddie" of Miss
Vallette's revealing diary, and Prose-
cutor Richard Devine said the hus-
band admitted intimacies with the
blonde play girl, whose slaying police
have diagnosed as a crime of jealousy.
Mrs. Freed, for whom squads have
searched the city since her picture

shortly before her death, crossed up
police expectations that she, too,
would surrender for questioning to-
The search for her continued while

Freed, ordered held as a material
witness, hastened to assure Captain
Barry he was willing to "cooperate."
He professed, however, not to know
his wife's whereabouts and said he
had not seen her since early Thurs-
day, several hours before Miss Val-
lette was slain with a pistol as she
lay in bed in pink negligee.

Civil Service Study Commission
Submits Report To Fitzgerald


Body To Submit Complete
Report Within 2 Weeks
Chairman Pollock Says
LANSING, July 6.-(YP)-The State'
Civil Service study commission got
down to a discussion of department
heads yesterday in a preliminary re- J
port to Governor Fitzgerald on pat-
The commission ,headed by Prof.
James K. Pollock, of the University'
of Michigan, will submit its complete
report within two weeks. Pollock
said a bill embodying the principles
of civil . service for state employes,
,ready for consideration of the legis-
lature, will accompany the report.
The Attorney General's office was
used as one example when the com-
mission discussed "labor turnover" in
various departments. When the ad-'
ministration of the office changed
hands in 1933, the report said, more
than 60 per cent of the staff was,
changed. Former Attorney-General'
Patrick H. O'Brien, of Detroit, a
Democrat, took over the office that'
75 Per Cent Turnover
When the administration of the of-
fice changed again in 1935, the re-
port continued, there followed a bet-
ter than 75 per cent turnover. Harry
S. Toy, a Republican and now a
State Supreme Court Justice, took
'charge of the office then. His ap-
pointment to the Supreme Court by
Governor Fitzgerald came later.
"In the department of state dur-
ing 1933, labor turnover fell to 20 per
cent-lower than the state govern-
ment average but explainable be-
cause the same officer continued on
the job through reelection," the com-
mission reported.
"Last year another man of the
same political party (Orville E. At-
wood, Republican) succeeded to the.
position and even then turnover
jumped to more than 30 per cent."
Costs Estimated

The cost of both changing the
status of present employes and re-
placing old employes with new ones
was estimated at $937,500 a year. Of
that amount, the commission said,
$663,750 represented the cost of re-
placing old employes with new ones.
The commission subtracted from the
last figure the six per cent turnover
which it said existed in municipalities
and arrived at the $438,750 yearly
cost figure for "avoidable" labor turn-
The report said turnover in the
department of health was only 12 to
15 per cent a year since 1931-32. In
the Conservation Department during
the same period it ranged from nine
to 19 per cent. Labor turnover in
the State Police, where a merit system
has existed for slightly more than
one year, has been 4.5 per cent for
the last five years.
"Labor turnover in state institu-
tions for the fiscal years from 1926-
7 to 1930-31 averaged 23.9 per cent
and was only 12.9 in the last five
years," the preliminary report said.
The report said rapid turnover in
government labor occurs in "good
times" because of lack of high wages
and guaranteed security.

Costs of the "labor turnover" in all is to assimilate a composite picture of
branches of state government were the policies and ideas of the impor-

fixed at $438,750 a year by the State
,Civil Service Commission. It based
its figures on a $15,000,000 yearly
payroll and assumed it cost one-
fourth of a new employe's yearly
salary to fit him for his work. The
report said the state changed 25 per-
cent of its employes each year.
The commission said last year the
average turnover in 635 cities was
six per cent. Differences between the
cost of shifting e nployes from one
job to another in the adminstration
and replacing them with new em-
ployes were emphasized by the com-
3 Tigers Unhurt
In Train Accident
CLEVELAND, July 6.- (/P) - Three
members of the Detroit baseball
team, shaken up a bit but unhurt,
when their train was struck by an-
other near Cleveland early today, con-
tinued their journey eastward tonight
to participate in the all-star baseball
game at Boston tomorrow.
Leon (Goose) Goslin, Lynwood
(Schoolboy) Rowe, and Charley Geh-
ringer were on board the first sec-
tion of the Big Four Railroad's "Mis-
sourian" which halted near North
Eaton and was rammed by the sec-

tant men in education.
If the commission wants action on
( any of the recommendations that it
may make, the dean pointed out, it
has only one way of possibly doing so
-a democratic and cooperative plan
of work from the outset. "The com-
mission seeks the assistance of mem-
bers of the teaching profession as'
well as laymen and there are count-'
less opportunities to participate in
this work."
Dean Edmonson declared that from
these forward-looking educators and
laymen will come the formulation
of various pi oblems and pertinent in-
formation which will lead to ends de-
sired by the commission-implement
changes in American education in
terms of the best recommendations
from the national committees now at
"Modern education has been
heckled by too many experts," Dean
Edmonson stated, "and they have
not brought about achievement in the
way of changing or adding to specific
educational programs."
Some of the specific aims of the
commission, as pointed out by the
education school dean, are a dissolu-
tion of the separateness idea in edu-
cation, bring education into the work
of the national and state resource
boards, foster a more unified and
cohesive organization of the teaching
