Is Not Getting
Fair AAA Lot
Far Exceeds Benefits
LANSING, Aug. 1- Michigan is
not getting a fair break in distribu-
tion of federal benefits under the
AAA, Commissioner of Agriculture
James F. Thomson, maintains in re-
porting that up to May 1 the state
contributed $4,812,296.78 in excess of
Thomson claimed that the process-
ing and related taxes collected in the
state of Michigan since the AAA
went into effect amount to $9,790,-
476.17. Benefits paid equal $4,978,,
"The benefits which have been re-
ceived in Michigan went to less than
30 per cent of our farmers and ac-
countedfor less than 6 per cent of
the farm income," Thomson said.
"But the entire public had to
share the cost of the AAA taxes.
As far as Michigan is concerned, the
AAA has turned out to be something
like Huey ,Long's share-the-wealth
"Poor workers in the city, who
can hardly get along, have had to
help pay AAA processing taxes. So
have poor farmers who haven't been
able to stay on one farm long enough
to be eligible for AAA benefits. And
the benefits have gone to help more
prosperous farmers, who have an es-
tablished busines and who don't need
"I am in sympathy with anything
which will help the farmers. If the
'AAA benefits were spread among all
farmers instead of only that 30 per
cent who need them least, as a farmer
I couldn't kick. But even then I
could object, as an official, to a con-
tribution by Michigan which is $4,-

May Serve As
University Officials Are
Of Future Development
University students will use historic
Sugar Island, the center of fur trad-
ing activities near Sault Ste. Marie
when white men first began to explore
the Great Lakes region, As a research
ground if the present plans are car-
ried out, it was announced by Prof.
Louis A. Hopkins, director of the
Summer Session, yesterday.
Professor Hopins left yesterday for
an inspection trip of the island which
is loctated just below the Soo in the
St. Mary's River in the company of
'several other University officials.
Former Gov. Chase Osborn has do-
nated" more than 3,000 acres of the
island to the University.
Dr. Hopkins will meet Dr. George
LaRue, head of the zoology depart-
ment, and Prof. Willett F. Ramsdell
at the biological station, and the
three will journey from there to the
island. Prof. Harlow O. Whittemore
of the landscape design department is
already on the island with a group
of students studying the possibilities
for landscape work.
The University has had possession
of the land for some years but little
use has been made of it other than
for camping trips by the forestry de-
Wild life, plants, and trees abound
on the historic island. There have
also been reports that many Indian
burial mounds are locted there. It is
expected that the University will draw
up a plan for futureddevelopment of
a portion of the land.
Projects Await Approval
LANSING, Aug. 1.- (P) -The first
projects of a huge conservation pro-
gram awaited the approval today of
the Works Progress Administration.
P. J. Hoffmaster, director of the
state conservation commission, listed
initial projects, estimated to cost
$995,000, which he planned to lay be-
fore Harry Lynn Pierson, state PWA
director. In the usual course of events
Pierson would forward the proposals
to the national works allotment board.
goffmaster said the program which
he hopes the PWA will aid in Mich-
igan may total $10,000,000 when all
projects are listed. Theyk will be sub-
mitted as prepared by the different di-
visions of his department.
The projects detailed today will re-
quire the expenditure of $443,280 for
eradication of fire hazards in forest
areas; $396,128 for improvement of
fish hatcheries, $156,00 for miscel-
laneous improvements. Included in
the list are projects in 21 state parks,

Secrecy Of Radio Telegraphy
To Be Broadcast By Police
EAST LANSING, Aug. 1. - (') -
The secrecy of coded radio telegraphy
is to supplement radiophone police
broadcasts in Michigan before au-
Lieut. Caesar J. Scavarda, chief of
communications for the state police,
said today he would discuss the plan
with police executives of Michigan at
a meeting at Blainey Park Aug. 6 and
urge them to install such equipment.
Scavarda is secretary of the National
Police Communications Officers as-
An application already has gone in
to the federal communications de-
partment for a license to link the state
police headquarters here into a radio
telegraph chain extending through
The communications chief ex-
plained the radio telegraph will not
do away with oral broadcasts to which
crime fans like to listen. He said both
systems will be used--the spoken
word of the radiophone to provide
contact between police headquarters
and mobile units in the field such as
cruiser cars and motorcycles and the
radio telegraph for conversation be-
tween police headquarters in this and
At present, Scavarda revealed, po-
lice departments all over the land are
violating the federal law which for-
bids point-to-point conversation with
radiophones. He said that because of
the nature of police work they have
been permitted to "get away with it."

Some Think Adjournment
Will Come Before Bill
Is Acted Upon
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. - (P) -
Striking two swift blows against the
Administration's proposal for man-
datory abolition of "unnecessary"
holding companies, the House today
tightened the deadlock over the Utili-
ties Bill and left its future clouded.
In some quarters of Capitol Hill
beliefs were expressed privately that
adjournment of Congress might see
the measure still unacted upon.
In quick succession, the House vot-
ed 210 to 155 against what many
members termthe "death sentence,"
and then instructed its conferees on
the bill to insist that outsiders be
excluded from conference sessions.
This action was aimed at Ben Co-
hen, Administration aide who the
Senate conferees insist be admitted to
deliberations on the bill. The House
vote was 183 to 172 for exclusion.
The latter controversy had held the
bill in a seemingly unbreakable dead-
lock for nearly three weeks, and to
all appearances that deadlock was
but made the tighter by the action
of the House.
Chairman Byron K. Wheeler, of the
Senate Conferees, was indignant.
"The House hasn't the right or
authority to tell the Senate what
should be done as to its conferees,
nor has the Senate the right to tell
the House," he said. "The presence
or nonpresence of an individual

forcement within the law, he pointed
out, the radio telegraph has the ad-
vantage of being more accurate than
the spoken word broadcasts, and pro-
viding absolute secrecy by the use of
The national police chiefs associa-
tion endorsed the radio telegraph as
a supplement to radiophone at its re-
cent convention. Scavarda said that
with this encouragement the Michi-
gan state police and police depart-
ments in many large cities that had
pioneered the cause of radio tele-
graph immediately laid their plans to
set up the equipment and obtain li-
censes to operate it.
Only U.S. ope
For Davis Cup
Carefully Fornied Plans,
Dependable Players Must
Play Important Part
NEW YORK, Aug. 1. -(P) --After
eight fruitless years in quest of the
Davis Cup, which France snatched
from America in 1927, the United
States is removed further than ever
from a real prospect of recovering the
famous international tennis trophy.
False hopes have been erected an-
nually, only to come tumbling down,
leaving not only dissatisfaction but
frequent bitterness in their wake. It's
about time the U.S.A., dominant on
the courts for nearly a post-war dec-
ade, quit "kidding" itself, discarded
alibis and faced the facts.
The salient facts, in retrospect, are
that since 1927 America has taken
only four singles matches in six chal-
lenge round flings. Three of these
were gained by Big Bill Tilden, the
other by Ellsworth Vines. England
made a clean sweep of the singles this
year and last.
This country has more tennis-play-
ing talent, per capita, than any other
nation. It has adequate facilities and
coaching fair the development of
younger players. Tournament play is
conducted throughout the year.
Why, with all this apparent oppor-
tunity and inspiration, can't the Unit-
ed States develop a team capable of
picking up where Little Bill Johnston
and Big Bill Tilden left off?
The answer seems two-fold: First,
that no sustained, long-range Davis
Cup plan of operations has been for-
mulatdd; second, that America's class
of top-flight players has proved er-
ratic, undependable or too receptive to
The United States Lawn Tennis As-
sociation may have been guilty of too
much optimism. It may have used
bad judgment in making some team
selections. But the governing body
can't be blamed wholly if past per-
formances prove an unreliable crit-
erion or if American players fail to
measure up to expected form.
Sidney Wood was left on the side-
lines during this year's challenge
round rout, despite the obvious indi-
cation Allison could not be counted
on for three successive days of top-
The current American "first 10"
is a tipoff. Of the first six ranking
players, Allison, No. 1, alone competed
in the Davis Cup competition abroad.
Wood was benched, Frank Shields and
Frankie Parker were not called on,
while Lester Stoefen and George M.
Lott turned professional.j
The No. 9 player, youthful Donald
Budge, turned in a sensational per-
formance and is the lone cause for
optimism about the future. He is a

Plans For Airline
MOSCOW, Aug. 1. - (P) - Plans
for a passenger airline across the
North Pole between Russia and the
United States were revealed today by
Otto Schmidt, head of the northern
sea route department.
He said such plans would be based
on whether the forthcoming flight
of Sigmund Levaneffsky and two com-
panions is successful, and that two
years of trial flights and other prep-
arations would be required before a
line could be put into operation.
Weather reports showed that condi-
tions along the proposed route were
improving, but Schmidt said he
thought it was wise for the fliers to
wait until at least tomorrow for their
takeoff. He indicated the start would
be made after sunset. The fliers plan
to arrive in San Francisco in daylight
after a flight of from 60 to 72 hours.

for that matter.
The mouth that Brown made famous
grinned from ear to ear as the movie
comedian said, "Nope, no more base
ball clubs," when he was asked of his
plans last night as he left by plane for
"I'm as great a base ball fan as
ever, but I have no ambitions to be

Group Told Of
Advertising Man Says He
Of Roosevelt 'Insanity'
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. - (P) -E.
P. Cramer, New Jersey advertising
man, told the Senate lobby commit-
tee today he had suggested months
ago that utilities companies start a
whispering campaign that President
Roosevelt was nsane.
Meanwhile, the House rules com-
mittee received testimony from Ber-
nard B. Robinson, Chicago utilities
official, that he had paid Robert
Smith, Washington lawyer, $500 to
teach him his way around Washing-
ton -how to use the Congressional
Directory and the like.
Robinson said he came to Wash-
ington, representing the Associated
Gas & Electric Co., to oppose the
Chairman Hugo L. Black of the
Senate committee recalled what he
termed a recent "whispering cam-
paign" that Mr. Roosevelt was in bad
health. It was quickly drowned by
widespread press denials from Wash-
ington. President Roosevelt himself
took cognizance of the campaign.
"Didn't you suggest in March, that
a whispering campaign be started to
convince the Nation that the Presi-
dent was insane?" Black asked.
"I don't recall," Cramer, a middle-
aged man with closely cropped hair,
"Didn't you suggest a whispering
campaign be started?"
"I sugested that as one of the mat-
ters that might be considered," Cram-
er replied in a low voice.
'Not A Well Man'
Robinson said he talked by tele-
phone Sunday night with H. C. Hop-
son, who is sought by the Senate lob-
by committee for questioning. Rob-
inson said he did not know where
Hopson was when the conversation
"Mr. Hopson is not a well man.
I've been told by physicians that if
he ever developed a sore throat, he
would choke to death."
Questioned sharply by Senator
Black, Cramer agreed there was "no
basis" for believing the President was
insane, and that he had never seen
"So far as you knew it was false?"
"I don't know," Cramer replied.
"Had you heard any such state-
ment from any doctor?"

injured early this morning when a
truck he was driving collided with
an oil tanker, driven by Harris Basch,
of Muskegon, on M-46, one half mile
east of Six Lakes.
Basch, who was uninjured, said he
saw Allen's truck weaving from one
side of the highway.to the other and
assumed Allen must have fallen
asleep at the wheel. He said he
sounded his horn and pulled as far
over to the side of the road as pos-
sible in an attempt to avoid a colli-
sion, but Allen's truck struck the
tanker head on.
