Host Of Track,
Field Stars To
Compete Today
300 Athletes Competing
For Berlin Olympic Team
At Randall's Island
NEW YORK, July 10. - ( P) -
Nearly 300 of Uncle Sam's foremost
track and field athletes today awaited
the starter's gun for the final drive
down the qualifying trail that leads to
the Olympic Games in Berlin.
The final American trials, quad-
rennially the greatest carnival of its
kind in the country, will be held in
the new municipal stadium on Ran-
dalls' Island tomorrow and Sunday.
With only sixty berths available,
four athletes will fail for one that
makes the grade.
Twenty-two members of the 1932
team will be in the field among them
Frank Wykoff, who went to the 100
meters final at Amsterdam in 1928
and ran on the winning 400 meter
relay team in 1932; John Anderson
and Eddie Gordon, discus and broad
jump champions, respectively.
Three In Each Event
The first three in each of seven-
teen events will gain olympic assign-
ments. The personnel of the 400 and
1,600 meter relay teams will be se-
lected from among the sprint candi-
Motion pictures will be taken of all
finishes and in cases where judges
disagree the camera will decide.
The weather prospects are for con-
tinued clear and oven-like heat. The
stifling temperature may handicap
the runners, but from the all-impor-
tant financial standpoint it height-
ened the chances of attracting a ca-
.. pacity gate and raising the $40,000
needed to finance the team.
Finals in the 100-meter dash, broad
jump and hammer throw will be de-
cided tomorrow.
Coffee-colored Jesse Owens, Ohio
State's star sprinter and jumper, will
have the spotlight on the opening
day. The Mercury-footed Negro is
entered in the century and the broad
jump and rules head and shoulders
above the field in these events.
Owens Faces Metcalfe
Owens has been unbeatable this
year in the broad jump, in which he
has cleared 26 feet, 81/4 inches for a
pending world record, but he may
have trouble in the 100 where Ralph'
Metcalfe, Marquette Negro ace, looms
as his most formidable rival. Owens,
hoping to gain an Olympic "triple,"
also will toe the mark in the 200
meters sprint Sunday.
The 800 meter run apparently of-
fers the best prospect for a new world
record. Ben Eastman, co-holder of
the universal mark of 1:49.8 may be
driven to even faster time to clinch
an Olympic berth. Stacked against
him are Ohio State's Charley Bee-
tham, the National champion, John
Woodruff and the veteran Chuck
Hornbostel, all of whom have been
clocked under 1:51.
The competition again will bring
. together Americas outstanding "met-
ric mile" rivals in the 1,500 meters
with the possibility that one or two
of the triumvirate, Glenn Cunning-
. ham, Gene Venzke and Bill Bonthron
may be squeezed out by Archie San
Romani, of Emporia (Kan.) Teachers,
the National collegiate champion.'
Californians Rule 400
Cunningham, who won at Prince-
ton last week virtually is conceded a
place and appears the man to beat.
Bonthron and Venzke may find their
Olympic hopes seriously jeopardized.
The 400 meter race loomed a dog
fight among the Californians, Jimmy
Luvalle, Archie Williams, Harold
Smallwood and Al Fitch, with Syra-
cuse's Eddie O'Brien and Jack Hoff-
stetter of Dartmouth also making

George Varoff, San Francisco's 22-
year-old pole-voulting janitor who
soared to a new world record height
of 14 feet, 61 inches last Saturday,

likely he or the others will approach
that mark. During recent workouts

of a foot injury. In the women's
singles last year's champion, Merida

Gasoline Company
Must Show Permit
The L. A. Smith Company of De-
troit, gasoline trucking firm, has been
ordered to produce evidence of a spe-
cial permit required by law to truck
gasoline at night, in connection with a
collision at 3:15 a.m. Tuesday just

ing to the accident report, he had
left his car parked withoutrlights and
on the wrong side of the road while
he walked into town to repair a flat
tire. Steve Bourgeois, 78 Stoner,

Frank Murphy
Seeks To Run
For Governor
Resignation Of Philippine
Executive Refused Until
After Primaries
DETROIT, July 10.-(A)--Frank
Murphy, Philippine high commission-
er, returned from Washington today,
confirmed his decision to seek the
Democratic nomination for governor
in the primaries and announced that
his campaign would be largely a
"week-end" affair.
"I will campaign actively," Murphy
said, "but it will be necessary for me
to spend most of my time in Wash-
ington, in connection with Philip-
pine affairs until my leave of absence
commences Sept. 5."
Murphy tendered his resignation as
Philippine high commissioner to
President Roosevelt, but the Presi-
dent declined to accept it immediate-
ly, planning instead to give Murphy
a leave of absence for two months
commencing Sept. 5. By the time the
leave expires Murphy's fate in the
Sept. 15 primary and the November
general election will have been de-
Mentions Platform
Murphy said in a formal statement
that if elected he would seek a mod-
ernized and simplified state govern-
ment and a non-political judiciary.
"If I should be nominated and
elected," he said, "it would be my
aim to establish in this state those
humane and enlightened social con-
ditions envisioned by the New Deal.
* * * * To insure sound and stable
government, public expenditures
should not be permitted to exceed
income except in conditions of ex-
treme public emergency."
At least one of three other candi-
dates for the Democratic nomination
has no intention of making way for
Murphy in the primaries.
George W. Welsh, one time Repub-
lican Lieutenant Governor of Michi-
gan, said emphatically that he plan-
ned to go ahead with his campaign
and would ask no help from Wash-
Schroeder Withdraws
George A. Schroeder, speaker of
the House of Representatives, told
Murphy today that he would with-
draw his announced candidacy for
the governorship. What Elmer B.
O'Hara plans to do remained unde-
termined. When he announced him-
self a candidate for the nomination
he explained his campaign would be
made on a "vindication platform."
O'Hara was convicted of vote theft
in the celebrated recount case grow-
ing out of the 1934 state election.
Murphy's announcement ended a
long period of uncertainty for Demo-
cratic leaders in the State, although
there still are some factors to be
reckoned with. The plans of Frank
A. Picard have not been clearly de-
fined, although many political ob-
servers expected him to remain out
of the governorship race if Murphy
Picard issued a statement saying he
might be a candidate if the candi-
dates now in the field did not take
what he considered a proper stand on
the question of liquor control. A
former chairman of the State Liquor
Control Commission, Picard favors an
even more rigid control of the liquor
situation by the State.

Bell Telephone
Accepts Slash
Charges Cut $1,500,000
A Year By Recent Order
Of State Commission
DETROIT, July 10.-(P)-A 25-
year war apparently ended today
with formal notice by the Michigan
Bell Telephone Company of its "pro-
visional acceptance" of a recent state
order reducing telephone charges $1,-
500,000 a year.
G. M. Welch, president of the tele-
phone company, announced the order
would be accepted but the company
reserved the right to contest the low-
er rates if revenues under the reduc-
tions proved "inadequate."
The company's decision was hailed
as a victory in Lansing by William
M. Smith, chairman of the State Pub-
lic Utility Commission which issued
the rate reduction order. He com
mented that the company's proviso
"doesn't mean a thing."
"The company always can contest
rates if they prove to be inadequate,"
Smith said. "The proviso doesn't
give the company any right it doesn't
have anyway."
Smith said he hoped most of the
reductions could be made effective
as of July 1.
Welch's announcement said that
the suit in United States District
Court, pending since 1926, would be
withdrawn, leaving no telephone rate
litigation in Michigan for the first
time in 25 years.
State officials recently estimated
that telephone litigation during the
past 15 years has cost the state $2,-
In accepting the new rates, the
company contends, Welch said, that
it, is "only fair and reasonable to
ask the public and the commission
for an expeditious adjustment in the
future if the experience under the
new rates indicates that they are not
fair to the company."
Major objections of the company to
the commission's findings included
the evaluation of telephone property
used in interstate service at only
$145,000,000, the determination of
5.5 per cent as a fair rate of return,
and the reduction to 3 per cent of
the allowance to be set aside for de-
