The 'General' Allows But
Four Hits In 4-0 Win;
Tie For First Results
Jo-Jo White Gets
A Homer In First
Tigers Get To Ruffing In
Third For Three Runs;
Yankees Threaten Once
NEW YORK, July 24. -General
Alvin Crowder gave the Yankees only
four hits this afternoon, and pitched
Detroit into a virtual tie with New
York for the American League lead.
The Tigershare .0004 of a percentage
point behind after today's 4-0 tri-
Jo-Jo White, the game's first bat-
ter, drove the ball over the right-
field bleacher fence for his first home
run as a majorleaguer. It was all
the Tigers needed, for during the
entil'e game New York only got one
man past first base.
Rallying for three runs in the third
inning,Detroit made sure of victory.
Owen walked and Crowder sacrificed
him to second. Cochrane drove De-
troit's second run across the plate
with a single to left, and took sec-
ond when Gehringer also singled. A
walk to Greenberg filled the bases,
and Goslin's single in the pinch drove
in the final two runs of the game.
Ruffing Allows 11 Hits
Red Ruffing started and finished
the game for New York. He allowed
11 hits, one of them White's home
run, and three others two base hits
by Owen, Greenberg, and Cochrane.
The only Yankee threat was a mild
one in the second inning. Dickey was
hit by a pitched ball, and Chapman
sin~ binio third. - Crosetti then
flied to White in center to retire the
side, Gehrig and Lazzeri having prey-
iously fanned.
After their third inning outburst,
the Bengals made frequent threats,
but were unable to add to their score.
In the fourth, Owen doubled to left,
took third on an infield out, but was
left when White grounded to short.
Consecutive singles by Fox and
Owen put men on third and first, but
again an infield grounder ended the
inning. Gehringer's single and Green-
berg's double in the seventh went for
nothing, also, as Goslin flied to
Chapman for the third out.
Cochrane's double in the ninth was
the only other Detroit hit.
The Yankees' meager total of four
hits were well scattered byhCrowder,
one coming in each of the second,
fifth, sixth and ninth innings. Not
a New York player walked, although
Dickey took first after being hit by a
pitched ball.
Rain Threatens
Rain threatened to halt the game
in the New York half of the second
inning, but after a delay of 30 minutes
play was resumed, and went on until
the finish without interruption.
Victory gave Detroit a two-to-one
lead in the series, which will be con-
cluded with a single game tomorrow,
but the Yanks still hold a lead over
the Tigers in the season's play. They
have won seven and lost six against
Mickey Cochrane's nine.
Both teams played errorless ball
in the field. The only double play

came in the ninth, ending the game,
as Gehrig hit to Greenberg forcing
Selkirk at second and being caught
himself on Rogell's return throw to
Manager Cochrane has chosen El-
den Auker to pitch tomorrow's game.
The big right hander will probably
be opposed by Johnny Broaca, who
has rarely enjoyed success against De-

Mysterious Box Connected In
Senate Utility Bill Investigation

Racial Hate

WASHINGTON, July 24. - (A) -
A mysterious, newspaper-wrapped
box and a direct insinuation that it
passed secretly from a power official
to a member of Congress today en-
tered the Senate's investigation of
Utility Bill lobbying.
Repeatedly, Chairman Hugo Black
asked John W. Carpenter, president
of The Texas Power & Light Co.,
whether he entertained a member of
the House just before the vote on
abolition of holding companies and
presented him with the box in ques-
Carpenter, apparently unperturbed,
leaned back in the witness chair and
just as often told his insistent in-
quisitor that he could not remember.
He might have received such a visit-
or, he said, but anyway, he "never
gave anything except maybe a meal or
two, or some cigars."
Maybe A Box Of Cigars
"Do you want the committee to
believe," Senator Louis B. Schwel-
lenbach asked, "that you can't re-
member the day before the vote was
taken that a box was wrapped in a
newspaper and that a Congressman
took it from your room at the hotel?"
"I can't remember," was the reply.

Well-Known Students Are
Married In Hammond At
Bride's Home
A wedding of special interest to
University students and faculty is
that of . Alison Tenant and David
Zimmerman which took place Tues-
day at the former's home in Ham-
mond, Ind.
For her wedding, Mrs. Zimmerman,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. R. Ten-
ant, selected a hyacinth blue mar-
quisette model fashioned along prin-
cess lines; having a long fowing skirt.
Mary Cox, a cousin of the bride, was
her only attendant. She was dressed
in a green and white printed linen
evening gown.
Mr. Zimmerman, son of Mrs. Daniel
Zimmerman of Barton Hills, was at-
tended by Lawrence Tenant as best
man. Mr. and Mrs. Zimmerman left
.yesterday for a motor trip in North-
ern Michigan, after a short visit at
the home of the bridegroom's mother.
Mrs. Zimmerman played the lead-
ing role in the Junior Girl's Play of
the past year, and was affiliated with
Alpha Phi sorority. Mr. Zimmerman
was a member of Alpha Delta Phi
fraternity, Play Production, and
played the leading role in the Union
Opera of the past year.
United St ate s
Wins Interzone
Tennis Final
Both Allison, Budge Win
Singles Matches From
Germans In Cup Play
WIMBLEDON, England, July 24. -
(IP) - America's Davis Cup hopefuls
polished off their German rivals in
the inter-zone tennis final today with
a flourish, winning by the final team
score of four matches to one and
qualifying to play England for the
coveted trophy starting Saturday.
After Wilmer Allison, the veteran
from Austin, Tex., put the series on
ice with a straight-set 6-1, 7-5, 11-9
triumph over glum-visaged Heiner
Henkel to give America her third vic-

tory in the five-match engagement,
flaming-haired Don Budge, of Oak-
land, Calif., applied the finishing
touches with a spectacular 0-6, 9-7,
8-6, 6-3 upset victory at the expense
of the formidable Baron Gottfried von
The bounding baron, who set down
the tall, nineteen-year-old Pacific
Coast star in four sets in the semi-
final round of the All-England cham-
pionships earlier this month, looked
completely dispirited before he fin-
ished chasing the redhead's blazing
drives. If the outcome of the series
had depended on the match Von
Cramm possibly would have given the
coast phenom a much sterner battle,
but that's said with 'no idea of be-
littling Budge's achievement.

"I know I didn't give away anything
unless it was a box of cigars."
Several times, he was asked wheth-
er Rep. Pat Patton, Texas Democrat,
visited him on that day, and again
he could not be sure.
Patton was indignant when he
heard his name had been brought
into the investigation. He denounced
the line of questioning as a "vicious
insinuation." He visited Carpenter
briefly with his family on two other
occasions, he said, but on the day
referred to-Sunday, June 30-left
early in the day for Annapolis and did
not return until late that night.
Recalled For Tomorrow
Carpenter left the stand with a
parting injunction from Black that
"if there is any way to refresh your
recollection as to your whereabouts
and activities on the Sunday im-
mediately before the vote was taken,
the committee wishes you to do so
and be prepared to testify tomorrow
The House Rules Committee mean-
while announced resumption of its
hearing tomorrow, with two witnesses
summoned - Dr. Hugh S. Magill,
president of The American Federa-
tion of Utility Investors, and another
whose identity Chairman John J.
O'Conner chose to surround with
In today's Senate inquiry, the com-
mittee, gleaned the following in-
formation from Carpenter:
That Texas Power & Light was a
subsidiary of American Power &
Light, which he said was associated
in some way which he could not
make plain with Electric Bond &
Spent Thousands
That Texas Power & Light spent
$33,777 fighting the Wheeler-Ray-
burn Bill, exclusive of the salaries of
those engaged in the battle and ex-
clusive, too, of a contribution of un-
certain amount to the Edison Electric
That all expenditures for this pur-
pose were charged to operating ex-
penses and would in the last analysis
have to be paid for by T. P. & L.S
That $192 was paid to Peter Moly-
neaux, of the Texas Weekly,- for
radio broadcasts opposing the Utili-
ties Bill, and that T. P. & L. adver-
tised in that publiction.
Coincidentally, the conference
committee on the Utility Bill met fo
two hours today but recessed until
Friday without discussing the coin-
pulsory abolition clause or any other
phase of the bill.

JACKSON, July 24. - - Racial
hatred between white and Negro in-

which has been brewing for several
months, flamed into a riot Tuesday
afternoon, and as a result five white
men are in the prison hospital and
nine Negroes are held in detention

Quickly Subdued
Warden CharlesdShean, who dis-
closed the riot today said the fight
occurred in the north yard of the
prison about 12:45 p.m. in a line of
a thousand men marching from the
dining hall to their exercise yard. The
fight, he said, was confined to a small
group and was quickly subdued by
The warden explained the delay in
giving out information of the riot to
a report submitted to him by Deputy
Warden Leonard McCoy of the affair;
in which the latter minimized the
trouble. Whep he learned that one
of the victims might die, Warden
Shean said ,he decided to give out the
The warden said that his investiga-
tion disclosed that trouble has been
brewing between the whites and
Negroes for some time. Recently, he
said, Negroes accused white inmates
of casting slurring remarks about
color to a Negro while they were
marching in dining hall line.
Negroes Discriminated Against
Rumors also have been passed
around the prison grapevine tele-
graph that Negroe employes in the
textile plants have been discriminated
against by white inmate straw bosses.
This phase of the dispute was taken
up by Negro employes in the prison
binder twine plant, the warden said,
and in the latter industrial division
the prisoners have access to knives.
In the riot Tuesday, a number of
knives were used, and rocks were
hurled, but the weapons had disap-
peared when a search was started for
Warden Shean declined to give the
name of one Negro held in detention
who he says is responsibe for the
trouble. Some of the Negroes held,
he says, may be released as soon as
details of the affair are sifted.
The prison count lists 3,889 in-
mates and 1,067 Negroes.

Bus And Steamer Afford
Students Transportation
On This Cruise
For those jaded students who came
to Ann Arbor not knowing that the
city's glacial winter climate takes a
tropical turn in the summer, an
afternoon's respite will be offered by
the University.
No, the University can't change Ann
Arbor's weather. Nobody - nothing
-could do that.
But, if you have $4.50 in your pock-
ets, and if you haven't anything par-
ticular to do with it, short of buying
ice cubes, then you can take advan-
tage of the Ninth Summer Session
tour - the really cool one. It's to-
morrow, all day. The destination
is Put-in-Bay, in Lake Erie, the trans-I
portation is by motor bus and steam-
boat, and the promise -made by0
Prof. Ralph L. Belknap of the geologyF
department, who is heading the trip
-is that the weather will be fair and]
cool. Cool, anyhow.
Buses To Leave At 7:15 A.M.
Chartered motor buses will leave
Ann Arbor for Detroit at 7:15 a.m.I
from the east entrance of Natural'
Science Building, proceeding directly
to the "Put-in-Bay Dock" at the foot
of First Street in Detroit, where the
steamer leaves at 9 a.m. When the
returning steamer reaches Detroit
from the Bay, buses will meet the
party and will arrive in Ann Arbor
at about 9:30 p.m.
The fun tomorrow is really sched-
uled to begin when the big steamer
pulls out' of Dtroit After 'ehjdyir'-
themselves en route, probably with
the cool breeze as much as anything
else, the party will disembark at about
1 p.m. at the island. During the three
hours' stopover at Put-in-Bay all
points of chief importance will be vis-
ited. Here's what is offered:
Points of Interest
(1) A long and pleasant shore-
line, with many glacially-striated
rocks which are said to be of par-
ticular interest;
(2) Several caves, temperature
quite sub-normal;
(3) Perry's Monument, a granite
shaft 352 feet high, commemorating
the victory of Commodore Perry in
(4) Crystal Cave, of special geol-
ogical significance. It is, according
to Professor Belknap, unique in the
abundance, size, and perfection of its
crystals of celestite, or strontium sul-
Put-in-Bay, by way of explanation,
is one of a group of 60 islands located
at the Western end of Lake Erie about
60 miles southeast of Detroit.
Yesterday's issue of The Daily in-
correctly stated that a lecture on
"Community Forums" delivered in
the afternoon educational conference
series in University High School was
given by Prof. Raleigh Schorling.
This lecture was given by Prof. Edgar
Johnston of the School of Educa-
tion, and Professor Schorling had no
part in the program.

President, The Congress,
Business, And Welfare
Agencies Involved
Roosevelt, Relief
Officials, Opposed
Chief Executive Doesn't
Want Corporation Gifts
To CharityExempted
WASHINGTON, July 24. - ()-
A swiftly developing series of disputes
involving the President, Congress,
business and organized welfare agen-
ies today stirred up new but vigor-
)usly denied reports that the Ad-
ministration Tax Bill would be put
ff until next year.
In quick succession, the day
rought these developments:
1-President Roosevelt expressed
trong opposition to the idea of ex-
3mpting from taxes gifts made by cor-
porations to charitable agencies;
2-A representative of three welfare
groups contended that the President's
insistence would mean "going back
o the horse and buggy days of private
3-An official poll of House Ways
and Means Committee Democrats, not
immediately completed, strengthened
the possibility that the committee
night disagree wtih the President's
recommendation that graduated
taxes be levied on corporation in-
come taxes;
4-Tight-lipped members of the
Committee declined to talk about
what they were doing. aftei' Chair-
man Robert L. Doughton, (Dem., N.
C.), described as "traitors" those who
old what was happening in secret
President Explains Stand
The President expressed his ideas
at a press conference. He contended
;hat gifts by corporations are made
to seek good will and conceded hu-
manitarian purposes of some corpora-
Jion gifts but argued that the desir-
able reasons for permitting them to
scape taxation were outweighed by
the undesirable.
Under present law, a limited ex-
emption is permitted if a corporation
-an prove its gifts are necessary to
the success of its business. A big con-
:ern in a small town, for example,
may donate without tax to a hospital
if that hospital takes care of workers
for the concern.
Rep. John W. McCormack, (Dem.
Mass.), a member of the House Ways
and Means Committee, recently in-
troduced a bill to let corporations give
ap to 5 per cent of their net income
without paying taxes. He declined to
liscuss the measure, now pending be-
fore the Ways and Means Committee,
but gave no indication that he had
changed his mind.
Democrats Favor Plan
At the same time, it was reported
by another committeeman that the
Democrats on that committee had
:already voted tentatively to include
such a plan in the new tax bill.
The welfare chiefs who joined in
ssuing a formal statement disagree-
ing with the President were Allen T.
Burns, of New York, executive vice
president of Community Chests and
Councils, Inc.; Msgr. R. Marcellus
Wagner, of Cincinnati, president of
bhe National Conference of Catholic
Charities, and William J. Shroder, of
cincinnati, president of the National
Council of Jewish Federations.
