Stay Home To
End Argument
Fitzgerald Wishes To Stop
McDonald Controversy
Prior To Vacationing
LANSING, Aug. 3. - ('P) -Gov.
Fitzgerald postponed his summer va-
cation at Mackinac island today to
settle the controversy between him-
self and Chairman Charles S. Mc-
Donald of the state liquor control
The governor ordered the commis-
sion last Monday to turn over for in-
spection all liquor commission li-
censes to the state police cut the
number of state stores from 102 to
75, pare payrolls by 150 employes, and
eliminate abuses which have crept
into the liquor traffic. He then ar-
ranged to leave on his vacation Aug. 5.
McDonald replied with criticism of
the administration, charging the
choice of his employes had been
turned over to patronage dispensers,
and liquor law enforcement hamp-
ered. He agreed to most of the re-
forms demanded by Gov. Fitzgerald,
but none of them has been put into
The governor said today that he
would not leave on his vacation until
Aug. 6 and planned to force adoption
of his proposed reforms by that time.
"I have accepted the responsibility
of cleaning up the liquor traffic in
the state, and I wil not leave the
capitol for a vacation until my sug-
gestions are carried out," he declared.
"If the present commission will not
do what I have demanded, another
one will."

Francisco-Oakland Bridge Unit Spans A Mile of Vater

-Associated Press Photo.
Engineers expect to complete the San Francisco-Oakland bay bridge by November, 1936, two months ahead
of schedule. This view shows the catwalks built out over the bay for a mile. Soon the cables for the second
suspension unit will be "spun" another mile from the concrete center anchorage to Yerba Buena island (left).
Spans east of the island, due to culminate in a cantilever bridge, also are visible in this picture, taken after
two years of construction on the project.
$75,000,000 Bridge, A New World

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2. - -(P)
-Dwarfing the sucrrying ferryboats
it will replace, the $75,000,000 San
Francisco-Oak~land Bay bridge, larg-
est in the world, assumes day by day
more of the final shape which will
loom against the San Francisco bay
Construction work, begun two years
ago, is now more than half complete.
The entire project is ahead of sched-
ule, and Chief Engineer Charles H.
Purcell of the California toll bridge
authority has promised his superiors,
Gov. Frank F. Merriam and Earl Lee
Kelly, state director of public works,
that the bridge will be ready for pub-
lic use November 1, 1936, two months
ahead of the scheduled date.
Two Bridges Involved
The great bridge 8%/4 miles from
end to end, actually involves two
bridges - one the two mile-long sus-
pension spans from San Francisco to
Yerba Buena island in the middle of
the bay and the other a cantilever
and truss bridge from the island to
Oakland - a tunnel through the top
of Yerba Buena and great approaches
on both sides of the bay.
Its two decks, will be capable of
handling 30,000,000 vehicles a year.
The upper deck wlil provide six lanes
far automobiles, and the lower will

carry two interurban train tracks and
three lanes for heavy trucks.
In length, it is three times that of
the great Firth of Forth bridge in
Scotland. On the San Francisco side
its lower roadway will be from 185 to
220 feet above high water. The tall-
est tower rises 505 feet above the sur-
face; the deepest pier is sunk 235
Dreamed Of Since 1856
The dream of bridging San Fran-
cisco bay has been held by Californ-
ians since 1856, but only within the
past decade have plans been pushed
to reality. It is being financed
through the sale of bonds to the re-
construction finance corporation,
which will be paid from tolls over
a period of 20 years.
One of the most spectacular phases
of construction now is underway -
the "spinning" of the cables from
which will hang the suspension spans
Buena. Two by two, the 17,264 wires
which will make up each cable are
being strung into place.
On the easterly half, steel work is
being pieced together to close the re-
maining 1,900-foot gap. The last 1,-

SAN FARNCISCO, Aug. 3. - (IP) -
A new record for out-of-state auto-
mobile travel in California was set
in the first six months of 1935 when
366,482 automobiles from every one
of the 48 states and many foreign
countries crossed the state's borders.
Some 2,000,000 acres of Oklahoma's
cultivated land is virtually ruined -
most of it abandoned - due to ero-

cantilever span, will be erected girder
by girder out over the water from
each side until it joins in the center.
Traffic Details Remainf
Already completed, of course, are
the anchorgaes, piers and towers, and
work is being pushed on the compli-
cated approaches. The task of lay-
ing the decks on the suspension side
and the flooring of the structure still
lie ahead.
Beyond the sheer structure, details
of the transportation system remain
to be determined. Engineers and
traffic experts foresee the likelihood
of marked changes in the stream of
traffic, now handled by passenger and
automobile ferries. Terminal facili-
ties, particularly at the San Francisco
end, must be established for the elec-
tric trains which will bring commut-
ers across from the East bay districts.
End Paroles For
Traffic Violators
LANSING, Aug. 3.-- (P)- A strin-
gent parole policy for state prison in-
mates serving sentences for motor
law violations went into effect Fri-
Commissioner of Pardons and Pa-
roles Joseph C. Armstrong announced
that he would require that all pris-
oners convicted of negligent homicide,
leaving the scene of an accident, or
repeatedly violating the drunk driving
law, serve their minimum sentences
without allowances for the pleas of
Armstrong said that the new policy
was adopted with the intention of
stiffening punishment, rectifying lax
observance of traffic laws.
"In most cases where a man be-
comes a prison inmate for violating
state motor laws, his friends imme-
diately go to his rescue and attempt
to free him before he has completed
his sentence," Armstrong said.
"In the future, when a violator re-
ceives an indeterminate sentence he
may be sure at the time he will serve
the minimum period."

Italy and Germany are merely on

The countries that chose to remain
on the gold standard in the early
years of the depression, instead of
devaluating, have had to lower their
prices and costs of production to the
point where they could compete with
devalued currencies on the foreign
markets. Among these were France,
Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Ger-
many and Italy.
The recent move of the Italian gov-
ernment, permitting the Bank of Italy
to reduce her gold reserve below the
40 per cent of the currency require-
ments, is considered by economists
as the beginning of the abandon-
