Every Marshall
And Agent May
Seek Hopson
Committee Chairman
Threatens Mass Action
To Find Electric Head
WASHINGTON, July 30. - (P) -
The Senate lobby committee today
threatened to arm every United States
marshal and Federal agent with sub-
penas for H. C. Hopson, dominant
figure in the Associated Gas and
Electric System.
Earlier, the committee received evi-
dence that the associated system had
spent $791,000 opposing the utility
bill, including a $25,000 fee to the
law firm of Patrick J. Hurley, secre-
tary of war in the Hoover adminis-
The threat was issued by Chairman
Black as Fred S. Burroughs, $60,000
a year vice president, testified that
he. did not know Hopson's where-
"It would be impossible that a man
could be in the United States and
not know that the committee wanted
Mr. Hopson," Black said, referring to
the widespread publicity giventhe
committee's search for the official.
"I agree," Burroughs replied.
"Somebody can get in touch with
him," Black said sharply.
"If we don't get in touch with
him we are going to turn over a sub-
pena to every marshal and every
other agent of the government."
Black added that there were some
questions that only Hopson could an-
swer, adding emphatically "we want
him here."
Black said Hopson "couldn't pos-
sibly be ignorant that we wanted
"It puzzles me" Burroughs replied,
"but I can't understand why he
den't come because there is noth-
ing tohide."
Ferri' Lawyer
Sa s Confession
S beaten Ou
Claims Three Women And
Main Defendant 'Forced
And Beaten'_By Police
DETROIT, July 30.-- (P)- Ralph
B. Guy, attorney for William Lee
Ferris,. charged today that "confes-
sions were forced and beaten out of"
Ferris and three women co-defen-
dants being tried for the slaying of
Howard Carter Dickinson, New York
Guy objected when Detective
James Turner, under direct examin-
ation by Prosecutor Duncan C. Mc-
Crea, attempted to repeat what Fer-
ris had told him about the disposal
of the gun with which Dickinson was
shot a month ago.
"I object," Guy shouted. "I object
to the repetition of anything these
defendants are alleged to have said.
Their confessions were forced and
beaten out of them."
Judge John A. Boyne, presiding
over the trial in recorder's court
silenced the attorney, ordered his re-
marks stricken from the record and
instructed the jurors to disregard
George S. Fitzgerald and John J.
Hogue, counsel for the other defen-
dants, Loretta and Florence Jackson
and Jean Miller, then asked that the
detective's written report be fur-

nished them. When the prosecutor in-
quired why they wanted it, Fitzger-
ald retorted:
"Because Detroit police always hit
below the belt."
Loretta Jackson collapsed in the
courtroom, forcing a 15-minute re-
cess before noon. She was carried
from the room by Mrs. Meyme Mc-
Credy, a matron, and two policemen.
Mrs. McCredy said the defendant was
suffering from nervous indigestion.
' After being given medicine she was
returned to the courtroom, and as
the trial proceeded she sat with her
head in her hands.

Mrs. A. E. Boak
Is Medalist In
City Golf Meet
Qualifies With 84; 'Will
Play Mrs. Max Williams
In Opening Match
Mrs. A. E. R. Boak led a field of
52 women golfers after the first round
of the eleventh annual Women's City
Golf Tournament had gotten under-
way Monday at the Ann Arbor Golf
and Outing Club.
Mrs. Boak, whose husband is the
chairman of the University history
department, traversed the eighteen
holes in 84 strokes, two better than
her nearest rival, Mrs. Forrest Stauf-
fer. Two women were bracketed in a
tie for. third place with identical scores
of 91, Mrs. Louis Andrews and Miss
Josephine Lang.
Sixteen entrants qualified for the
championship match play by virtue of
their qualifying scores in Monday's
play. All cards of 100 or under were
sufficient to qualify.
First round matches for the cham-
pionship as well as in five flights
begin at 8:35 a.m. today when Mrs.
Boak and Mrs. Max Williams, her op-
ponent in the initial round, leave
the tee. The former is favored over
Mrs. Williams, who shot an even 100
to just squeeze into the champion-
ship flight.
Mrs. Stauffer, who was runner-up
in last year's tournament to Jean
Kyer and who captured the medal in
1934, meets Miss Barbara Leidy, who
also scored 100 on Monday.
Mrs. Andrews encounters Mrs. Her-
bert Tenny while Miss Lang drew as
her first round foe, Mrs. J. Reach.
Mrs. Tenny qualified with a 99 and
Mrs. Reach with a similar score.
Other championship flight matches
are as follows: Miss Nadina Schmidt,
(97) vs. Dr. Margaret Bell (98); Miss
Dorothy Lyndon (94) vs. Mrs. C. F.
Kessler (99) ; Miss Eleanor Tice (97)
vs. Mrs. R. T. Dobson, Jr. (98); and
Mrs..Robert S. Hastings (96) vs. Mrs.
W. Haller (98).
Miss Peggy Whitaker, although she
shot a 100, failed to reach the cham-
pionship flight when she lost the third
hole of a playoff with Mrs. Williams
and Miss Leidy. Miss Whitaker
therefore was placed in the top spot
in the first flight and is favored to
capture first honors in that division.
Players who suffer defeat in to-
day's play will immediately be placed
in consolation tournaments in all di-
visions so that several days of com-
plete golf is assured for all contes-
Since Miss Kyer has chosen not to
defend her title this year, the battle
for honors in the championship
bracket has been termed a wide open
one with Mrs. Boak and Mrs. Stauf-
fer favored to meet each other in the
finals by virtue of their sparkling
play in the qualifying round.
Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons, trainer of
Omaha, has trained horses estimated
to have earned a total of $204,100,
which would make him the tops in
this line in America.

WASHINGTON, July 30. -(A -If
man had modeled his early airplanes
after flying fish instead of the birds,
he might have learned to fly much
That possibility is suggested by Carl
L. Hubbs of the University of Michi-
gan in the annual report of the
Smithsonian Institution.
"Pioneers in areonautics and de-
signers of eary aircraft made the
mistake of neglecting to study the
most airplane-like- of all animals,
the flying fish," he declared.
"The idea had become so firmly
fixed in man's mind that birds are the
pre-eminent animals of flight that
they alone were looked to in the at-
tempt to discover the principles of
Actually A Glider
Now, almost 32 years after the
Wright brothers made the first sus-
tained flight on the wind-swept Kitty
Hawk sand dunes, the airplane is
taking the form of the flying fish,
even down to having retractable land-
ing gear to cut down resistance, low
monoplane wings and bullet-shaped
"The whirling motor and the whirl-
ing propeller, both involving the prin-
ciple of the wheel, are the essential
points by which the airplanes of man
differ from flying fishes, nature's
own seaplanes," Hubbs declared.
Hubbs said the wings of the flying
fish are rigid in flight, just as are the
wings of the conventional airplane,
with the lifting power coming from
the flow of air over the upper surface.
'Taxi' Along The Surface
Some flying-fish-the monoplane
type-dart directly out of the water
into the air, he explained, but the
double-wing fish gather momentum
by a "taxi" along the surface, pro-
pelling themselves through the wa-
ter with vigorous, rapid tail-lashings.
With their wings spread out in the
air and their bodies riding on a slant
similar to that of a seaplane hull,
they take off from the water at a
speed of about 35 mileswper hour,
probably increasing their speed just
as the takeoff and taking to the air
after a run of about 30 feet.
Hubbs added that the flights of the
fish last only for a few seconds, sel-
dom longer than a half-minute, but
that during them the fish are able to
control the direction of flight.
For more than 30 years, W. H.
Hyatt, 71-year-old Charlotte, N.C.,
Negro, has attended court daily "just
to watch."

-Associated Press Photo.
Ever since the Wright brothers took to the air at Kitty Hawk 32
years ago, aeronautical engineers have been seeking the most efficient
shapes of fuselage, wing attachments, engine replacements and best
methods of control in flight. Gradually planes - esp6ecially seaplanes
-have imitated the flying fish, shown above. One of the latest models
is the navy seaplane.

A Depression Cure;

MILWAUKEE, July 30. - (P) -
Pick up a puzzle for solace is the ad-
vice of Anton Filipiak, science teach-
er here who has made puzzles his
hobby for 12 years.
When his mother, one of a family
of puzzle addicts, is depressed, Fili-
piak says, he gives her one of his fa-
vorite teasers and in four or five hours
of concentration, the puzzle is solved
and cheerfulness has returned.
Filipiak has a collection of more
than 500 puzzles, some from foreign
lands. Filipiak advocates college

Famous Jewels
Stolen In Huge
New York Haul
NEW YORK, July 30. - (A) -A
ruby necklace which jewelers claimed
once adorned the neck of Marie An-
toinette was in the hands of thieves
today after a daring jewel robbery.
The necklace, valued at $10,000,
was seized with other gems valued
upward from $40,000 during the rush
hour late yesterday from the store
of Nicolai Miller at 743 Fifth Ave.
Two robbers bound and gagged two
clerks, and within ten minutes cleaned
out the show windows and show cases.
Hundreds of pedestrians hurried
by in front. Traffic-jammed autos
honked. Neither these nor the shrill
blasts of the busy 57th St. traffic po-
licemen's whistle disturbed the effi-
ciency of the robbers.
Before the clerks could free them-
selves, the loot-loaded thieves had
disappeared in the hurrying crowd.
The Marie Antoinette necklace was
displayed in the window on a model
neck as headless as the queen's came
to be.
The necklace was made up of 25
flat-cut rubies of from one to two
carats each, set in gold filigree with
small diamonds and with a ruby and
diamond clasp.
