Cochrane To Be

vation today, but Walter 0.

Fire Sweeps More
Northern Michigan Forests
NEWBERRY, Mich., July 22.-
(/P)-A trainload of men and
equipment was sent to the aid of
CCC workers and volunteers to-
day when the forest fire along the
Tahquanenon River swept across
a mile strip of green timber and
spread into the Lake Betsey
The break of the Tahquamen-
on fire, which had been held in
check by 1,00 workers, brought
fresh troubles to conservation de-
partment officials. The Lake
.Betsey area, wild and almost
inaccessible, is highly inflam-
mable, the officials said.
Another fire burning in the
Calspar and Buckeye region East
of Manitique, also went out of
control today and spread into
hardwood slashings on a stiff
southwest wind.
The Tahquamenon fire was fed
by wind of near gale proportions.
Fire lines and a section of
green timber were believed hold-
ing the blaze, but sparks jumped
the green strip and set fire to
under brush, spreading rapidly
into the Lake Betsey section.
Iron Discipline
Not Needed On
S. S. Manhattan
route.to Berlin, July 22.-()-Taking
steps designed to minimize the im-
pression that America's Olympic ath-
letes required an iron disciplinary
hand on the voyage to Europe, Avery
Brundage took occasion tonight to
term the "deportment and spirit on
the team, with few exceptions, ad-
mirable throughout the trip."
"Such disciplinary action as it was
felt essential to take in one case pro-
duced gratifying results," the presi-
dent of the American Olympic com-
mittee said.
SBrundage refused to divulge details
of the incident cited. He asserted it
was not desirable to magnify or take
advantage of a situation which now
was considered closed but emphasized
that "the entire team was the best
behaved of all those we have taken
It was well known aboard ship that
the members of at least three teams
were reprimanded early in the voyage,
but warnings sounded then by Brun-
dage proved effective. At that time,
Brundage had received reports of
late hours, drinking and gambling
