Chill Blast From White House
Hits Un-Diplomatic La Guardia
WASHINGTON, July 29. - A chill,
not the soothing coolness of the air-
conditioning plant which makes the
President's work room tolerable in the
searing Washington heat, has gone
out from the White House in the
last few days in the direction of
New York's Mayor, Fiorello La Guar-
The Roosevelt frost is on the Go-
tham city hall pumpkin. The Little
Flower, Fiorello, who bloomed lux-
uriously in the sunshine of the New
Deal smile, now is wilting in the
glomy shadow of FDR's displeasure
-has been ever since La Guardia
set himself up as an expert in for-
eign relations and refused to issue a
icense to a German masseur.
The President, at his latest press
conference, pointedly declined to com-
ment on La Guardia's anti-Nazi ac-
tion. But in almost the next breath,
using the Italian-Ethiopian situation
as a springboard, he plunged into an
impassioned exposition of the New
Deal philosophy of foreign affairs.
And the first tenet of the American
creed was: "Be a good neighbor and
mind your business."
But if Roosevelt himself refused to
speak of La Guardia, those closest to
the President made two highly sig-
"What La Guardia means is that
if another Senator Bob Wagner comes
to Manhattan from Germany, the
Mayor will refuse him a permit to
run a news stand. Bob Wagner first
earned his living selling newspapers."
"Diplomatic incident? We hope not.
La Guardia is pulling the same stuff
that Big Bill Thompson did in Chi-
cago when he said he would bust
King George in the snoot. At its
worst, it will fall into the class of
mere political opportunism and of
regrettable incidents along the line
of Smedley Butler's yarn about Mus-
solini being a hit-and-run driver."
To what extent the latest actions
of the impulsive La Guardia will sour
the hitherto amiable relations of the
New Deal in the White House and the
fusion regime in New York's city hall,

Drop Game To
Cleveland 6- 5
CLEVELAND, July 29.-- After the
bases had been loaded in the ninth,
the Detroit Tigers' rally broke, and
Cleveland won, 6-5. The Tribe had
lost 11 straight to Detroit.
Although outhit, 10 to 9, Cleveland
rallied powerfully in the sixth inning
when they scored six runs. General
Alvin Crowder stuck through this
disastrous inning, but was taken out
for a pinch batter in the seventh
and Auker held the Indians hitless
in the last two innings.
Detroit scored its five runs in five
different innings, and it was not unti:
the ninth inning that they drove Wil-
lis Hudlin from the mound.
White opened the thrilling ninth
inning with a single and Cochrane
also singled. Both advanced a base
on Gehringer's sacrifice, and, after
Hudlin had walked Greenberg inten-
tionally, Lee came in to pitch. He
struck out Goslin on three pitcheC
balls, and forced Rogell to pop, end-
ing the game.

At Education Club
"Are teachers people?"
This question and the implied an-
swer that many teachers are operat-
ing under conditions which make this
question an inevitable one furnished
the basis for a discussion of Teacher
Tenure and Retirement by Prof. A.
B. Moehlman at the final meeting of
the Men's Education Club last night
at the Union.
The repressions on the personal life
of the teacher in many small com-
munities; and the general insecurity
of salary, tenure, and provisions for
retirement were held responsible by
Professor Moehlman for the loss of
intellectual vigor and vitality of many
teachers and the position of social in-
significance they sometimes find

Declaring that without exception
every rule .of international law defi-
nitely binds these United States, Dr.
James Brown Scott last night as-
signed to Congress absolute respon-
sibility for enacting statutes carrying
these rules into effect.
Failure to enact such municipal
statutes or to apply it if enacted, Dr.
Scott said, who is chairman of the
annual Summer Session on Teaching
International Law, asserted, renders
the nation ,if it is in default, liable in
This conclusion is based, the speak-
er said, on the conclusion drawn from
the text of Francisco de Victoria that,
"Every rule of international law has
a municipal sanction in esse or in
posse, and a failure to enact a muni-
cipal statute for that purpose - or to
apply it if enacted - renders the
state in default liable in damages."
Pointing out that "international
law should be and is today the law
of every nation of the world," Dr.
Scott asserted the law of nations is
"last" upon this, country and every
other country. "IR was imposed upon
us the minute we came into being,
and the most the United States can
do is to define and enforce the law
of nations," he said.
The speaker asked that the United
States "make that express which is
implicit" in international law.
Continuing his plea for municipal
statues, Dr .Scott described every
violation of international law
"whether in peace or in war" as a

LANSING, July 29. - Gov. Fitz-
gerald demanded today that far-
eaching changes in the state liquor
ontrol commission be inaugurated
mmediately. He told the commis-
ion that its policies must be altered
adically. The governor made eight
pecific recommendations and asked
hat the commission give them im-
1. That enforcement be turned to
he state police. This would entail
he dismissal of 68 commission in-
pectors. Commissioner Oscar G.
Dlander of the department of public
zafety would be authorized to select
between 30 and 40 men to take the
place of the inspectors. They would
be chosen entirely on a basis of merit
and without regard to political affill-
tions. Warning would be issued to
ocal enforcing agencies that they
must do the major share of enforce-
ment work, and if they fail the state
olice would step in.
Cites Eight Points
2. Immediate removal of all screens
r other obstructions to a clear view
nto drinking establishments from
3. Prohibit the serving of drinks
n booths. The governor charged
that establishments in which drinks
are served to young persons in booths
are "'ruinous to norals"
4. Reduce the number of the liquor
commission employes by at least 150
within 30 days. There are now 987
employes. The governor asserted the
commission is overstaffed.
5. Reduce the number of state
liquor stores to not exceeding 75.
There now are 102. In this con-
nection the -.governor recommended
that any established druggist who
wants one should be given a retail
distributor's license. "For the life of
me," Mr. Fitzgerald said, "I cannot
see why any established druggist is
not as much, entitled to a license as
Favors News Bureau
6. Establish a news bureau in the
commission. The governor declared
the public has been misinformed rela-
tive to the activities of the commis-
sion because of conflicting expression
from members and employes.
"If there is, anything to cover up,"
he said, "I want to know what it is.
I want the people to have the facts,
whether good or bad. There should
be a central news source from which
unbiased facts can be obtained."
7. Rigid inspection of all licenses to
eliminate "holes in the wall" and
undesirable drinking places. The
governor recommended that local
authorities be asked to check on all
such estabishments. Members of the
commission indicated that when new
licenses are issued the city of Detroit
as well as out-state communities will
be asked to approve every license.
Under the law licenses may be issued
in Detroit without local approval.
8. Immediate installation of a
business manager to take charge of
the state's liquor business and oper-
ate it on a strictly business basis.
The governor told the members of
the commission, all of whom were
present except Chairman John S. Mc-
Donald, that something must be done
at once to bring about a change for
"The situation is far worse than
ever before in the state's history," Mr.
Fitzgerald said. "In transferring en-
forcement to the state police that
duty will be removed as far as pos-
sible from politics. The commission
inspectors have been working under
the banner of a political party. They
have been thinking in terms of mak-
ing friends for a party or for politi-

sioner Olander will select his own
