Meets Pres. Roosevelt
Again Today At Capital
May Have Important
New Dealers See Murphy
As Possible Candidate
For Governor's Chair
WASHINGTON, July 8.-(P)-~
Frank Murphy of Detroit, high com-
missioner to the Philippines, will
confer with President Roosevelt again
tomorrow and with three Michigan
Democratic ,leaders due to arrive in
time for the White House confer-
pence or shortly afterward.
Thursday's conference, one of the
several Murphy has had with the
President, is expected to have con-
siderable bearing on Michigan's state
ticket in the 1936 campaign.
New Deal campaign strategists
were reported to be interested in see-
ing Murphy become a candidate for
governor with Rep. Prentiss M.
Brown, St. Ignace, Mich., running
for the seat now held by Sen. James
Farley Denies Knowledge
James A. Farley, chairman of the
National Democratic committee, how-
ever, said at his press conference to-
day he did not know what Murphy
was going to do, and denied he would
interfere in the selection of state
"I am not going to interfere with
the selection of any state nominee,"
said Farley in response to a question
as to his interest in the Michigan
Brown, accompanied by National
Committeeman Edmund C. Shields,
and Don Kennedy, of the Michigan
State Highway Department, were ex-,
pected here tomorrow. Murphy said
recehtly he hoped to bring several
Michigan party leaders here for a
Murphy Due Friday
The high commissioner was plan-
ning to leave for Detroit Thursday
night, arriving there Friday morning
with a decision as to whether he will
make the race for governor. Po-
litical sources both here and in
Michigan were confident he would be
a candidate and that Brown would be
his running mate for the Senate.
Asked what the Democratic cam-
paign organization proposed to do to
cope with the sharp criticism of the
New Deal by Senator Vandenberg
(Rep., Mich.), Farley said he would
be taken care of "in stride."
Vandenberg Opens Attack
Vandenberg, who refused to seek
the vice-presidential nomination on
the Landon ticket, already has be-
gun his campaign attack on the
Roosevelt administration policies.
During the last session of Congress
he was a chief figure in the anti-ad-
Avoiding a definite committment
on his own political plans, Murphy
said he had tentatively recommended
J. Weldon Jones as his temporary
successor at Manila, the appoint-
ment hinging upon Murphy's de-
cision to reenter Michigan politics.
In any event, Murphy said he ex-
pected to "remain in the Philippine
picture" and indicated appointment
of his permanent successor might be
deferred several months.
Jones, former insular auditor and
Murphy's financial adviser, has been
executing some of the high commis-
sioner's duties since his chief left
Manila two months ago.
Continuing a round of official con-
ferences on Philippine affairs re-
sumed yesterday when he returned
from a week-end trip to Detroit,
Murphy urged his proposal that con-
versations be held this fall prelimin-
ary to the. Philippine-American trade
conference scheduled for next year.

By Dean Edward Kraus,
Prof. Scott Relates
The annual excursion to Niagara
Falls, to take place next week was
originated in 1905 by Dean Edward
Kraus and was intended in the begin-

Irving D. Scott of the geology depart-
ment, and leader of the trip this
year, said yesterday.
Although later the excursion was
revised to include anyone in the Sum-

party will leave Ann Arbor at 3:40
p.m. Friday by rail, and continue to
Welland, Ont., from where they will
travel the remaining few miles to Ni-
agara Falls by bus.
Saturday will be devoted almost
entirely to a demonstration and in-
terpretation of the geological fea-
tures exhibited by the Falls and by
the gorge. A trip will be taken to the
end of the gorge at Lewiston, N Y.,
and will include stops at the Whirl-

Sunday morning the party will visit
the more popular places of interest
at Niagara Falls. The Maid of the
Mist trip, a little steamboat excursion
which takes one right up to the Falls

Scott added. Sunday morning trips
to Goat Island and the Cave of
the Winds will also be included on
the schedule. The Cave of the Winds

MILWAUKEE, Wis., July 8.-(P)-
John D. M. Hamilton, Republican
campaign chief, tonight called Pres-
ident Roosevelt's reference to "ec-
onomic royalists" that of "a harried
and driven candidate."
"Who are these economic royal-
ists?" Hamilton demanded in a
speech prepared for delivery before
the Wisconsin state Republican con-
"We are not told.
"They are no more identified than
those mythical great bankers who,

The president put the phrase "ec-
onomic royalists" into the 1936 po-
litical dispute with his acceptance
speech at Philadelphia on June 27.
In that speech the president said:
"Out of this modern civilization,
economic royalists have carved new
dynasties ... our allegiance to Amer-
ican institutions requires the over-
throw of this kind of power."
Hamilton's reply tonight came in
criticizing Secretary of the Treasury
Morgenthau's recent radio report on
Federal finances. Hamilton said the
report "failed to convey the entire
truth," and said the voters would de-
mand specific information on the
national deficit. Then he added:
"Nor will the electorate's insistence
be diverted by the setting up of straw
men, whether by President Roosevelt
"I know well how to appraise the
import of a charge made by a har-
ried and driven candidate that all his
opponents are economic royalists."
Report Is Issued
By Dr. Forsythe
General Increase Is Shown
In Use Of Its Facilities
By Students In 1935'36
A Health Service report for the nine
months of the regular academic year
of 1935-1936 was issued yesterday by
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director,
showing a general increase in the use
of Health Service facilities by the
"In general, the report was not as
favorable to student health as was
that of 1934-1935, which was, how-
ever, unusually good," Dr. Forsythe
commented. "The increase of serv-
ices generally is a continuation of
the growing use of the department
for conditions not usually thought of
"The less favorable student health
during this year is indicated by the
increase of deaths and hospitalized
patients, strinkingly for pneumonia
and appendicitis. Increased enroll-
ment is a factor in comparative data,
but the marked increase of pneu-
monia is unexplained.
"The X-ray examinations of chests
of all new students for the detection
of tuberculosis was the outstanding
new feature of the year's work. It
,will probably be repeated next year."
The report itself showed a total of
100,948 dispensary calls, as com-
pared with 98,175 for 1934-1935 and
84,945 for the previous year. Pa-

Hottest Day Since

With the thermometer at the Uni-

at that hour 91.7 degrees. From this
point on the mercury climbed stead-
ily and at 1 p.m. stood at 99 degrees.
At 2 p.m. the thermometer reached
,the 100 point. Here, however, it did
not stop, but kept on mounting until
it struck the high point of 102.2 later
in the afternoon.
The biggest jump was recorded in

Height In State
DETROIT, July 8.-GP)-A Blazing
sun sent temperatures soaring to
record heights in several Michigan
cities today as Michigan residents
sweltered under the first state-wide
heat wave of the season.
At least five deaths were attributed
to the heat and a score of persons
were overcome. The torrid wave sent
-thousands to rivers and beaches
where six or more were drowned in
the last 24 hours. No immediate re-
lief was in sight.
The thermometer at Owosso's city
hall climbed to 109 degrees for the
highest unofficial reading reported.
Both Bay City and Saginaw reported
official readings of 107 degrees, estab-

Dr. Smillie Shows Environment
Is Not Factor In Catching Colds
One of mankind's most prevalent
diseases, the innocuous common cold,
was yesterday explained by Dr. Wil-
son G. Smillie of Harvard University
in a lecture as rich with humorous'
anecdote as with scientific value, to
the Summer Session students who
nearly filled Natural Science Audi-
torium on the hottest day of the,
summer. His topic was "The Com-
Conflicting theories on the cause
of the common cold were responsible
for Dr. Smillie's far-flung investiga-
tions which took him to the localities,
in and near ,North America, of peo-
ples who live the simplest lives of
twentieth century civilization.
- His investigations have fairly well
established the fact that colds are
specific inflictions that are trans-
ferred from one person to another,

found unsuitable, he said, because the'
inhabitants too often came into con-'

In the hillbilly section of southern'

lie said he found his first experi-
mental locality that met the required
conditions, even though it was diffi-
cult to make -friends with the moun-
taineers who took them for Federal,
agents and shot at them several times.
A secluded community that made
one trin en masse to the county seat
