For Spending
Convention Adopts Slogan
Triumph With Townsend'
In First Day
CLEVELAND, July 15. -- (A) - Dr.
Francis E. Townsend, founder of the
Townsend Old Age Pension Plan as-
sailed today the Roosevelt adminis-
tration's "crazy orgy of spending"
and told the second National Town-
send Convention his movement has
the support of other groups who seek
a "new era of social justice."
Townsend told his followers the
pension plan has the backing of the
National Union for Social Justice, the
share-the-wealth movement, and
"other groups of unhappy and dis-
satisfied voters opposed to the New.
Deal's crazy orgy of spending," and
those "who are working toward a
new era of social justice."
He approved the principle of a'
constitutional amendment to make
the Townsend plan effective.
"Abolish Poverty"
He told the delegates-most of
them gray-haired men in their shirt-
sleeves-that he believed "we shall
agree on a program of political ac-
tion and ours must be a plan of im-
mediate action that will assure the
abolition of poverty from our land."
"All the haphazard, ill conceived'
legislation that has been indulged in
by this (Roosevelt) administration
evinces one of two things, either pro-
found ignorance and lack of compre-
hension of the basic causes underly-
ing our economic national disaster,
or a deliberate, Machiavellian planned

tered hands do not prevent them from
using the boats almost continuously.
How to get into and out of a boat,
how to use oars, and the sharing of
the privilege of oaring are taught the
boys. Boats are rotated in such a
way that the 136 "brownies" have
many opportunities to use the boats.
The camp does not have hot show-
ers. But with the sun raising the
temperature to 120 degrees and heat-
ing Patterson Lake, the water is just
fine for a scrubbing bath. First, the
boys dive in. Then soap and sponge
clean the brown bodies; the lads
soap themselves. After entering the
lukewarm water again, they come out
finished products.
Patterson Lake is about as import-
ant to the campers as the tasty,
wholesome food. Swimming twice a
day is assured, one in the morning
and one in the afternoon. Then too,
every boy takes a dip in the morning;
and sometimes a twilight dip is
scheduled-a real treat on a butter-
melting day.
Patterson Lake serves other pur-
poses. Leave out fishing and for
some campers you've left out the
meat of camping. And many fisher-
men there are among the 136 happy
lads. On boating trips rods and reels
are not forgotten.

Secret Service
Probes G-Men,
Cummings Says
William H. Moran Refutes
Attack On Service By
WASHINGTON, July 15.-(P)-
Two government officials disagreed
tonight over reports that secret serv-
ice men had been investigating J. Ed-
gar Hoover's justice agents.
Questioned at his press conference,
Attorney-General Cummings said
"there has been some activity, I sus-
pect, of an ill-advised nature."
When William H. Moran, secret
service chief, was told of Cummings'
statement, he replied:
"There's nothing to it."
Cummings refused to explain his
"suspicion," but indicated he would
defend Hoover's administration of the
Federal Bureau of Inestigation, if
The Attorney-General told ques-
tioners he "would rather have such
questions (concerning the secret serv-
ice investigation) asked at the treas-
ury" in which the secret service is lo-
"I'll say, this," he continued, "if
anybody's shooting at Hoover, they're
shooting at the wrong person. They'd
better start shooting at me."
Cummings refused to say what as-
pects of the Federal agents' work he
suspected secret service men of in-
vestigating, but other department
officials indicated the alleged "activ-
ity" concerned expenditures of the
F.B.I. in its crime-fighting work, and
also the killing of Eddie Green, Dil-
linger gangster.
When Hoover appeared before the
Senate appropriations sub-committee
last spring, asking a million-dollar
increase in funds for his bureau,
Senator McKellar (Dem., Tenn.) pro-
tested the bureau had been "running
wild" in spending money. Hoover
countered that a slash in the appro-
priation might result in a new "wave'
of kidnapings."
When McKellar remarked that the
bureau's appropriations had risen
from $2,250,000 in 1928 to twice that
figure, Hoover replied:
"There were a series of crime bills
--the kidnaping statute, the extortion
statute, the bank-robbery statute, the
fugitive law, the stolen property law
and several others enacted by Con-
gress, which have greatly increased
our work."
Murphy Invites
F.D.R. To Visit
The Philippines
Frank Murphy, high commissioner
for the Philippines, said today he had
urged President Roosevelt, if re-
elected to visit the Islands next year
and indicated he was hopeful the in-
vitation would be accepted.
Roosevelt would be the first Presi-
dent to undertake the voyage of over
6,000 miles to Manila though he has
cruised to Hawaii, more than a third
of the distance.
Murphy, shortly to start a two-
month leave of absence to seek the
governorship of his native Michigan,
arrived from Detroit for two days of
conferences with State and war de-
partment officials "mostly on Philip-
pine affairs."
Healeftra memorandum at the
White House and talked with Bri-
gadier-Gen. Creed F. Fox, chief of
the Bureau of Insular Affairs, and
Assistant Secretary of State Francis

B. Sayre.
His campaign for the Democratic
nomination for governor, he said, will
open with a radio address Friday
night at Detroit, followed by speeches
at Mt. Clemens, his home town of
Harbor Beach, and Bad Axe.

Haber Praises
Michigan Relief
State Relief Head Believes
Michigan Plan Is Model
To Be Followed
EAST LANSING, July 15. - (P) -
Dr. William Haber, state emergency
relief administrator, told the Mich-
igan Conference of Social Workers
here today that relief work in Mich-
igan could be a model for many other
states to follow.
Haber said this state has made
its way through the depression and
recovery days with little need for
juggling of funds to carry on the
work, and now has enough money
in the treasury to permit a more
liberal relief basis than was possible
in the past.
The relief administrator paid trib-
ute to Governor Fitzgerald and for-
mer-Governor Comstock for having
stood their ground in favor of a
centralized system of relief adminis-
tration, contending that the present
system should be continued with
counties given control over their ex-
penditures "as much as possible with-
out interfering with the program." He
told of "enormous" pressure brought
to bear on both men for a change
that would give control to the coun-

government "well might follow suit."
He also had a good word for the

had not heard of any movement by

vorable to the merit system.

Since the beginning of time,
"plain living and high thinking"
have enabled many to prolong
their span of life for many

latest example of the result of a
life ruled by their infience is
that of John D. Rockefeller, Sr.,
who has already passed his
