ActionOn Rum
Reform Sought
By Fitzgerald
Demands Commission
Turn Enforcement Over
To State Police
LANSING, Aug. 1. -- (/P) - Gov.
Fitzgerald, goaded by the reluctance
of Chairman John S. McDonald of
the state liquor control commission
to put into effect recommendations
for the reform of the liquor act ad-
ministration, threatened action to-
-The governor demanded Monday
that the commission turn over en-
. forcement of the law to the state
police. The commission agreed to do
so yesterday but failed to set a date
for the transfer of police powers from
its own investigators.
Gov. Fitzgerald recommended that
the commission reduce the number of
state liquor stores from 102 to 75.
The commission, meeting yesterday,
agreed to study that phase of the
liquor traffic, and Chairman MDon-
ald took first action on the recom-
mendation by closing the store at
Charlotte - in the governor's home
county of Eaton.
Friend Dismissed
The governor also had recommend-
ed that 150 employes be dropped im-
mediately from the liquor control
commission pay rolls as an economy
measure. McDonald agreed, and as
his first move in that direction dis-
missed a friend of the governor, form-
er State Senator William F. Turner,
of Morley, long a Republican leader,
who had been employed as personal
director of the commission.
The commission chairman charged
that a representative of the adminis-
tration was given control of patronage
in the Detroit office of the commis-
sion and immediately added 95 em-
ployes. He named Paul Tara, of De-
troit, as the patronage dispenser. He
asserted that he had cut commission
payrolls ontaking office, and the con-
trol. of patronage was immediately
taken from him.
"My next comment will not be ex-
pressed in words but in action," the
governor said on learning of Mc-
Donald's attack on the administra-
"I told the commission to put the
reforms I recommended into effect,
and they will go into effect."
Backs Statement
McDonald said he understood that
the governor had changed his mind
and did not wish the commission to
install a business manager as he sug-
gested Monday. Fitzgerald said he
stood solidly behind the recommenda-
tions he made and had changed none
of them.
The governor, in his monthly state-
ment accounting for the stewardship
of the state, which was issued last
night, dealt again with his intention
of clearing the liquor traffic of cor-
rupt practices. Confident that his
proposed reforms will be carried out,
he said in part:
"The situation today with respect
to the legalized liquor traffic is worse
than it was in the darkest days of the
saloon. We have permitted condi-
tions to grow up that demand drastic
treatment - and drastic treatment is
what I have prescribed, with all the
force at my command.
"Liquor law enforcement is being
taken out of the hands of civilian,
politically appointed inspectors. It
is being turned over to the state

Cotter Agrees
To Transfer Of
Recount Case'
Judge Brennan To Preside
On Examination Of 48
'Vote Stealers'
DETROIT, Aug. 1. - (P) - Judge
Thomas M. Cotter of recorder's court
agreed today to transfer to another
judge examinations of 48 defendants
who are awaiting hearings in the re-
count vote "stealing" case.
The hearings, scheduled for today,
were postponed until Friday, because
Judge John V. Brennan, who will
preside, is engaged with another case.
Judge Cotter transferred the exam-
inations to Judge Brennan at the re-
quest of defense attorneys and in
consideration of the fact that he still
is conducting a one-man grand jury
investigation into various angles of
the legislative recount of the 1934
Michigan election for secretary of
Chester P. O'Hara, assistant attor-
ney general, expressed amazement to-
day when defense attorneys an-
nounced they had obtained copies of
testimony taken early in the year
before a special investigating commit-
tee of the state Senate.
It was this Senate committee that
recommended the one-man grand jury
investigation which Judge Cotter has
been conducting. O'Hara said he
thought he had the only transcripts
there were of testimony before the
Senate committee.
Defense attorneys asked for post-
ponement until Saturday of the exam-
inations to give them time to study
the Senate testimony, but JudgeBren-
nan ordered them to "be here to-
morrow ready to go to work."
State-Wide Meat
Strike Is Planned
DETROIT, Aug. 1. - () - Women
leaders of "meat strikes" in four com-
munities if the Detroit metropolitan
area discussed plans today for a state
organization which would extend the
battle to force down prices over a
broader front.
Mrs. Myrtle Hoagland, head of a
meat boycott movement in suburban
Lincoln Park, proposed united action
with housewives of Hamtramck,
Highland Park and of Detroit itself.
She suggested that women of the four
communities form an organization.
which would become a nucleus for
a statewide, and perhaps a nation-
wide protest against meat prices.
Two groups of Detroit housewives
asked police protection for pickets,
who, they said, would be posted at
butcher shops in their respective
neighborhoods for the rest of the
week. Picketing by Hamtramck
women last weekend led to several
street scuffles and butchers estimated
their sales for the period declined
95 per cent.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1- The ad-
ministration's bill for the coinage of

tabled by the House Coinage Com-
mittee today on the ground that it
would convey too much authority to

WASHINGTON, Aug. 31. - (i') -
When the senior senator from Vir-
ginia rises to speak, quiet reigns in
the Senate, and everyone listens. The
next day the papers carry his words
at length. For what Carter Glass
says is news.
He never fails to speak his mind
and he is a master of the spoken
word. Few can express fury and con-
tempt so tellingly as the fiery Vir-
Although a staunch Democrat, he
has minced no words in attacking
any feature of the New Deal that dis-
pleased'him. Roosevelt calls him "an
unreconstructed rebel," and they are
warm friends. But he criticizes the
administration whenever he thinks it
deserves it.
"I always intend to do my sworn
duty as senator," he says. And ir
that statement those who know him
see implication of impending battle.
Nearing 77, Glass retains the cour-
age which gained him local fame as
a °ed-haired schoolboy in Lynchburg.
They call him "Pluck." Size meant
nothing to him then, or now. He
bristles before the most imposing op-
position and although sometimes de-

G-Men' To Assist
Small-Town Bank
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1.- (t) -
I'he arm of the justice department
agent is expected to reach out soon
to protect the small town bank, long
victimized by America's 5,000 known
bank robbers.
The "G Men," who collared nearly
140 robbers of national banks last
year, are called upon to shield an-
other $18,000,000,000 (18 billion)
under a provision tucked away in the
new banking bill, now in conference
between Senate and House.
The bill extended to all banks in-
sured by the Federal deposit incurance
corporation the "G Man" protection
given last year to national banks and
Federal Reserve member banks.
"Country bankers" have feared
since the Federal agents were put on
the job last year, that the bank robber,
frightened away from "big game,,,
would redouble his attack on the small
town bank.
Under the new law, agents would
be given orders to track down robbers
who steal any of the $41,000,000,000
deposits in 14,280 banks, national and

Drive Started
To Guard AAA
From Tax Suits
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. - (P) - A
new defensive drive to protect the
AAA from processing tax suits was
disclosed today at the justice depart-
ment as the total of such suits zoomed
to 636.
Tax experts from the attorney gen-
eral's staff are being sent to several
parts of the country. They will aid
federal district attorneys in their
fight against suits for injunctons to
halt colection of taxes.
Half a dozen of these experts are
out now, working on what are consid-
ered key cases. Another will leave
next week to defend the agricultural
adjustment administration against
suits of 17 packers in Chicago. Nearly
40 tax lawyers, assigned to federal
district court cases, are available for
the fight.
Meanwhile, all the 90 members of
the justice department's tax division,
under Frank J. Wideman, assistant
attorney general, are devoting most of
their time to the attempt to save the

Vessel Went Down After
Crash With Loss Of 55
Seaman And Cadets
MOSCOW, Aug. 1. - UP) - The So-
viet government turned its resources
today to the raising of the hulk of
the sunken war-time submarine B-3,
which became a death trap for 55
Russian officers, seamen and cadets.
An official communique disclosed
that the 18-year-old U-Boat, taking
part in Baltic fleet maneuvers, went
down in the gulf of Finland last
Thursday in the worst disaster to be-
fall the Russian fleet in years.
The submarine, rising from deep
water after an under-water cruise,
smashed into a surface vessel. Water
poured through a gaping hole in the
U-Boat's side and it sank imme-
"All aboard the submarine per-
ished," said the official statement.
The government announced that
10,000 rubles - would be granted to
the family of each victim and that
pensions would be paid. It planned
a mass funeral at Kronstadt, where
many of the students were attending
naval school.
Complete details of the tragedy
were not disclosed. There was no
indication of how the sailors met
death - whether they were killed in-
stantly or died slowly of suffocation.
The submarine was of the old
"Bars" type, built in 1917 toward the
end of Russia's participation in the
World War.

(Associated Press Sports Reporter)

Departure of the Detroit Tigers
from New York without playing the
fourth game of the "crucial" series
was a great relief to the Yankees, but
it only postponed the evil day of reck-
oning. The Yanks have got to come
to grips with Mickey Cochrane's Ben-
gals again, and when they do, it looks
to be just too bad for the New York-
Watching that series, though it
wasn't full of sparkling baseball and
contributed no great pitching feats,
you couldn't help but see the dif-
ference in the two clubs. One has a
leader, Cochrane, a fiery, driving,
dynamic crowder, the other has none.
Technically Lou Gehrig is the cap-
tain of the Yanks, the head of the
New York forces in action. Lou hit
a home run and helped win the first
game, 7 to 5. After that he might as
well have gathered bats for the rest
of the boys.
A Bad Time To Argue
The difference between him and
Cochrane never was more obvious
than in the last play of the third
game. George Selkirk had beaten
out a bunt on Alvin Crowder, who
was holding the Yanks to four singles.
There was one out. Gehrig was next
up. He slammed a hot grounder down
the first base line.
Hank Greenberg fielded the ball
back of first and heaved to second,
starting a double play. - There was

ing the double play and ending the

his decision, and Gehrig looked very
silly out there, still. trying to argue
while the crowd filtered down on the
field out of the stands and headed for
the exit gates, and all the rest of the
athletes trotted for the showers.
Snappy Endings
Each of the three games the Yanks
and Tigers played ended on a strik-
ing note, with Gehrig's moan the low
point. But seldom have two games
ended as spectacularly as did the two
the clubs split in the doubleheader
opening the series.
With two down in the ninth and a
man on, two runs needed to tie the
score at 7-all, it looked as though
Jo-Jo White had hit a home run
into the right field stands. But Sel-
kirk went back, leaped high in the
air in front of the screen and dragged
down the ball in his gloved hand just
as it was about to clear the barrier.
That was a play.
But the ending of the second game
was just as good. Ben Chapman
was on second, after doubling with two
out in the ninth and the Tigers lead-
ing 3 to 1, Red Ruffing came up as a
pinch hitter and whanged a single to
right. It was a line single, and it
covered the distance out to Pete Fox
in a minimum of time. Chapman
tried to score, and Fox, with a per-
fect peg, nailed him by five feet at
