FERA Office
Force Works
As A Machine
But Terror And Laughter
Are In Human Letters
Appealing For Relief
By SIGRID ARNE
WASHINGTON, July 22. - (/P) -
The 400 men and women who make
up the Federal relief administration's
staff here have gone through three
phases of philosophy since they took
their places on the distress firing line.
Frist, great shock and worry over
the hundreds of thousands of fam-
ilies imploring help.
Then, punch-drunk, a phase of an-
noyance at the insistence of many
and the angry vituperation of some.
Then, a knowledge that only swift,
cold, methodical office work can speed
help to the homeless. .Tears and wor-
ry at headquarters only delay.
Like Clearing House
Now the office force has settled
to a workman-like organization that
would be difficult to distinguish from
any large business concern. Stenog-
raphers in rows; filing clerks at cab-
inets; deputy administrators pouring
over reports; regional men returning
to describe their territories.
The Washington office - and thou-
sands of unemployed forget this - is
merely a clearing house. It has no
money to spend on its own authority.
It can't send shoes, doctors or the
rent to the needy. It can only grant
money to the states, and advise on
and check the spending.
One group at headquarters acts as
accountants. It goes over the books
of the states and determines how
much the states can afford to pay for
their own poor.
Determine Human Needs
Another group determines the hu-
man needs; the number of penniless
and unemployed, the sort of people
they are, the shortest way for states
to rehabilitate them.
Another group gives technical ad-
vice on work projects.
And the fourth deals with the rural
poor and stranded populations, such
as lumber towns where the forests
are gone.
But the people on relief know little
of organization. They forget their
own state is responsible for them,
and they write their troubles to Wash-
ington. They write of everything
from hunger to sick cows and unfaith-
ful husbands.
Storm Postpones
Flight By Russian
MOSCOW, July 22. - (P),-A sud-
den electrical storm broke over Mos-
cow this afternoon and halted the
take-off of the Soviet's "mystery"
plane on a 6,250-mile flight over the
North Pole to San Francisco. Further
unfavorable weather was forecast.
Because of the secrecy attending
the proposed flight there were reports
thatthe plane had already left. These
were denied, however, by Assistant
Manager Vofan, of the sea route de-
partment.
United States Ambassador William
C. Bullitt had postponed a vacation to
the Black Sea to be present at the
beginning of the flight.
Sigmund Levaneffsy, one of the So-
viet Union's most celebrated fliers,
will be in command of the flight,
His co-pilot will be Baibukoff and his
navigator Levchenko, who came into
prominence as the rescuer of James
J. Mattern when the American
round-the-world flier was stranded

in Anadir.

As anti-Jewish demonstrations continued in Nazi Germany and the
government loosed a new blast against the Catholic church, Count von
-Helldorf (left) was named Berlin police president to succeed a man who
failed to chase the Jews out of Berlin, and Hans Kerrl (right) was
placed in charge of all Catholic and Protestant church matters with
orders to prosecute priests for preaching anti-nazi doctrines.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 22. -
M - Riders of the romantic past,
says Tex Austin, couldn't hold a
candle to present day broncho bust-
ers.
The towering New Mexico rancher,
who is here not to enter the movies
but to stage a cowboy contest August
3 to 11, makesthis observation after
25 years of active participation in
rodeos in London, New York, Chicago
and other cities.
Austin also takes a long step to-
ward exploding another pet theory
about riding broncos.
"Anyone who says he never was
throwed," drawls Tex with ungram-
matical emphasis, "never throwed a
leg across an outlaw."
Cheek Straps Gone
He doesn't exempt any of them -
not even the winners of Calgary stam-
pede, the Cheyenne frontier days, the
Pendleton roundup or the Fort Worth
and Salinas, Calif., rodeos.
"I'd like to stake out and subdivide
all the ground I've seen the best riders
in the world looking for when one of
those broncs decides to move out from
under. Why, I'd have a million dol-
lars."
"Riding has changed so much since
then," he explains in talking of the
old-timers. "In the old days they had
a lot of equipment to aid them. They
had a check strap to keep the horse's

head up. They rode in tight cinched
saddles and they could hang on
with their spurs.
"That's all out now. There is
nothing to keep a bronc from getting
his head down so he can. buck. There
are no tight cinches to takethe fire
out of a mount. When a rider comes
out of the chute, he must have both
spurs high on the shoulders and then
bring them back when he's in the
open so the judges know he hasn't got
a hold.
Milking Race Needed Rules
Tex says rules were needed to off-
set the ingenuity of riders in figuring
out new ways of subduing their
mounts.
"Just like the wild cow milking
contest we used to have," he ex-
plained. "We paid prizes for the win-
ning team of two cowboys. One ran
out and caught the cow and the other
dashed out with a quart bottle and
filled it to a certain mark.
, "Well, the first thing we knew, one
of the boys was back again almost as
soon as the cow was caught. You
see, he had the milk in the bottle
before he started. So we made a rule
covering that.
"I gave up trying to beat the in-
genuity of the boys on that and stop-
ped staging milking contests. After
all, no real cow hand milks cows
anyway."

SAN FRANCISCO, July 22.-(W)
- They're "on work relief," and their
job has spooky aspects - building a
seawall with 'tombostones - but Ed
Thornton and his crew don't mind.
They don't think of ghosts, and
there's no murmur of complaint, even
when they have to labor by moon-
light in the ebb hours.
Some of the men stand in the wa-
ter while the spray beats over them
and the wind from off the Golden
Gate intensifies its chill. Occasion-
ally one stands erect to balance on
one foot, remove a boot and pour out
the water.
'Bread And Self Respect'
"It's bread and butter and 'self re-
spect,' and every time I look up and
see one of those headstones they're
building into the wall, I'm better
satisfied," says George Gordon, one
of the youthful workers who has tem-
porarily abandoned his ambition to
become an architect.
"Well, the boys really do make fun
of it, especially on the late night
shifts when they have to work at
mean hours to take advantage of the
low tide," explained Thornton.
The wall being erected on the Ma-
rina is 12 feet thick at the base, 15
feet high and will be several thousand
feet long. Old cobblestones, the
tombstones of two abandoned ceme-
teries and salvaged rock from an old
wall are being used to avoid costs of
new material.
No Labor Trouble
"See those huge rocks down there?"
asks Thornton. "Well, they weigh up
to 20 tons each. We rigged up a
'snatch' tackle to help, and the boys
waded in, in the moonlight, and
heaved in rhythm to the tune of the
'Volga Boatman" and simply pushed
them out of our way. When the big
stones first began to give, they let out
a great shout. Talk about an organ-
ized rooting section! We've got one.
We chant Southern melodies and
other songs and it's because we make
fun of it - partly -that we've not
had a hint of labor trouble for more
than a year."
"I'm not ashamed to be on relief

worthwhile job we're doing, but I
don't let the folks at my rooming
house know I'm on work relief be-
cause so many of the early jobs were
so foolish and so clearly charity.
Some day I hope to get back to pri-
vate employment. Uncle Sam's O.K.
as an employer, and I'm grateful to
him, but you see it ain't like working
for a private boss. This kind of work
can't last forever and I'm anxious to
get back into something where I can
get established."
"Any prospects?"
"Sure. A couple of years ago I
made the break and I almost got
away with it. A friend and I saved our
money by about starving ourselves,
and answered one of those partner-
ship ads. The guy was supposed to
be doing so much business he couldn't
take care of it alone. So we bought in
and the first week we split 75 cents.
That washed that up and my friend
beat it.
Tomatoes All Froze
"We had bought a truck on time
and the next day the finance com-
pany came around to take it back. I
talked them into giving me another
week, borrowed $5 and started out
in the produce business buying and
selling fruit and vegetables.
"In no time at all I had $1,500 in
the bank. So I contracted for a big
patch of tomatoes. Got a good buy
too. But a few days later a frost came
along and every doggone tomato was
frozen. This time the finance com-
pany took the truck.
"But I'm saving my money agair
and I'll make a go of something some
of these days."
SWIMMERS WARNED
A warning to students to refrain
from swimming in warm, crowded
pools in the neighborhood of Ann Ar-
bor was given yesterday by Health
Service offcials.
Several students have contracted
diseases from swimming in crowded
pools this season, officials revealed.
