Brown Will Be
Candidate For
Dem. Senator
St. Ignace Congressman
Gives In To Pressure
From Administration
DETROIT, July 11.-(P)-The ef-
fort of the National Democratic ad-
ministration to include Michigan's 19
electoral votes in its column next No-
vember took on more concrete form
today with the announcement of Rep.
Prentiss M. Brown, of St. Ignace that
he would seek the Democratic Sena-
torial nomination in the September
15 primaries.
Bown, who has served through
four sessions of Congress as repre-
sentative from the eleventh Mich-
igan district, thus joined Frank Mur-
phy, Philippine High Commissioner,
in a campaign to capture Michigan
as the Democrats did four years ago.
Murphy announced in Washington
Thursday he would enter the primary
for the nomination as governor.
Announcement Not Unexpected
Brown's announcement today was
not unexpected. Like Murphy he had
been under steady pressure from Na-
tional Democratic campaign man-
agers to carry the administration's
cause in the coming primary cam-
paign. Murphy is counted upon to
bring out full Democratic strength
in Detroit, while Brown is expected to
to much toward developing the out-
state vote for the National Adminis-
Another development today was the
announcement by George Schroeder'
Democratic Speaker of Michigan's
House of Representatives that he had
decided to withdraw as a candidate
for the nomination for governor. He
coupled his announcement with an]
endorsement of Murphy's candidacy
and added that he would willingly,
become a candidate for secretary of
state at the October Democratic state
convention should his services be de-
sired by the party. Schroeder had1
given assurance to Murphy that he1
would withdraw from the campaign.
Case May Run
The next move in development ofj
the Administration-sponsored state
ticket will be the announcement oft
a candidate for lieutenant-governor<
to run with Murphy. State Senator
Leon D. Case has been mentioned,
but Case also is being urged to run1
for Congress in the fourth district.
He said today he would wait a few
days before making a definite deci-
While the day's developmentsr
served to bring into sharper align-
ment Administration plans for the
Michigan campaign, the last day for
filing nominating petitions for the
primary still is a fortnight away with
many would be candidates on both
Democratic and Republicanetickets
still undecided.
Muyskens A Candidate
Brown will have opposition in the
primary, but the extent of it cannot
be appraised until the filing lists close
July 28th. Prof. John Muyskens, of
the University of Michigan, and Louis
B. Ward, former Representative of
Father Charles E. Coughlin's National
Union for Social Justice, have an-
nounced their candidacies.
On the Republican ticket in the1
primary, Senator James Couzens willt
seek re-nomination and will fight ite
out with former Governor Wilber M.x
Brucker for the place on the Novem-
ber ballot.-
Asserting his belief that "it is vital
for Michigan to have a Democrat
in the Senate during the coming Ad-t
ministration," Rep. Brown said:
"I have been a reasonably consis-
tent supporter of the President's pol-
icies and shall continue to be."

able, but the outcome of the 200 meter
dash tomorrow also will be taken into
consideration before determining the
relay personnel.
Woodruff startled onlookers by
handing a sound beating to Ben East-
man, the former Stanford University
star, and breaking the tape in the
first of two 800 meter tests in I min-
ute, 49.9 seconds. This was only a
shade off the world mark of 1:49.8
which Eastman shares with England's
Tom Hampson, 1932 Olympic cham-
pion. On a brand new track and
under conditions that looked far
from auspicious for any record men-
acing performances Woodruff's race
was electrifying and strengthened
America's prospects of Olympic con-
quest in an event the U.S.A. has not
won since Ted Meredith triumphed
in 1912.
Eastman was beaten out for second
place by Abe Rosenkrantz of Michi-
gan Normal, by a stride. Marma-
duke Hobbs of Indiana was the fourth
qualifier in this heat.

win by two yards in 1:51.8, with Har-
ry Williamson of North Carolina third
and Charles Beetham, Ohio State's
national champion, a surprisingly
hard-pressed fourth.
Louisiana State's Glen Hardin did
not extend himself to take the first
heat of the 400 meter hurdles in
52.9 seconds, with Bob Osgood of
Michigan, Ham Hucker of the New
York A.C. and Johnson Trailing. Dale

President F. D. Roosevelt
Dedicates $64,000,000
Public Works Highway
NEW YORK, July 11. - (') - Offi-
cials of the city, state and nation,
headed by President Roosevelt, joined
today in the dedication of the great-
est public works projects yet com-
pleted, the $64,000,000 system of
bridges and elevated highways con-
necting the boroughs of Manhattan,
Queens and the Bronx.
Immediately after the ceremonies,
the great modern artery, known sim-
ply as the Triborough Bridge, was
opened for public use and continuous
streams of traffic started flowing
back and forth among the three
The 2,000 invited guests who sat
in the sweltering heat at the dedica-
tion heard President Roosevelt refer
to the project as a symbol of chang-
ing human needs which call for "an
up-to-date government in place of
antiquated government."
Surrounded by many notables, in-
cluding Governor Herbert H. Leh-
man, Mayor F. H. LaGuardia, James
A. Farley and Secretary of the In-
terior Harold L. Ickes, the President
"There are a few among us who
still, consciously or unconsciously,
live in a state of constant protest
against the daily processes of meet-
ing modern needs. Most of us are
willing to recognize change and give
it reasonable and constant help."
The ceremonies brought together
for the first time Secretary Ickes
and Robert Moses, New York City
park commissioner and executive offi-
cer of the Triborough Bridge author-
ity, and brought from Moses a refer-
ence to their controversy of several
months ago.
The dispute arose when Ickes is-
sued an order that no NWA official
should hold another job. Moses re-
fused to resign as park commissioner.
"The reason for any further com-
ment on this subject is gone," Moses
said, "now that the public works ad-
ministrator and I have met face to

of us has horns, hoofs and a tail .. .

But heat and brought continued
their ravages over the remainder of
the west, the north and southern
parts of the country.
Upwards of 700 deaths were totalled
as temperatures soared over the 100
degree line from North Dakota to
the eastern seaboard.
Illinois' fatalities for eight consec-
utive days of tropical weather were
104. The temperature at Danville
equalled the all time record there of
111. Michigan's deaths from heat and
drownings touched 100 as the mer-
cury reached that mark again in De-
troit. Missouri burned in its eighth
day of 100 degrees, so did Kansas.
New York's mortalities mounted up-
ward toward 70 with conditions alle-
viated in the perspiring metropolis
by the half holiday for thousands of
office workers.
The prospective death for the torrid
wave electrified the domestic grain
markets. A downpour of selling or-
ders flooded the Chicago pits and
wheat broke the five cent limit. Corn,
its critical period of maturing now
at dead center, dived and swooped
even more erratically. After fluctuat-
ing through a range of seven cents
a bushel, it finally stopped 1/4 to two
cents down. September delivery was
821.2 cents. a bushel at the close of
one of the wildest Saturday short
sessions in months. Its net gain dur-
ing a week of punishing heat for the
nation's crop was 11 cents. July and
September wheat closed at $1.042.
