Deterniine Stratcgy
Although conceding privately that
they had little chance of success,
bonus, silver, and farm debt refinanc-
ing inflation groups headed for a
downtown meeting to determine their
oWn opposition strategy.
It was thought that the inflation
forces, called by Senator Elmer Tho-
mas (Dem., Okla.), would decide to
offer, the $2,000,000 bonus and Fra-
zier-Lemke $3,000,000,000 farm bills
as tax riders, despite the Democratic
announcement.
But Robinson said all such attempts,
would be. stopped by drastic tabling,
motions which automatically shut off
debate. He claimed the votes.
- enator harles L: McNary, the
Republican leader, said there would be
a general 'disposition on the minority
side to expedite the tax bill, and he
still predicted an adjournment could
be had by Aug. 17.
Thomas Warns Of Delay
Thomas commented that if the ad-
ministration waited until next session
to permit another vote on the bonus,
rejected once this session when the
Senate refused to override a Presiden-
tial veto of the Patman inflation mea-
sure, they would be confronted with
a drive for immediate payment. Since
the pending compromise would call
for payment beginning in 1938, he
argued, the government would save
two years' interest.
Borah said the Frazier-Lemke bill,
proposing to refinance the .farm debt
with $3,000,000,000 of new currency,
could be considered in five hours and
that if he had a chance to vote to "put
the bonus on I'm going to do it."
"A Special Order"
Announcing the result of the Demo-
cratic meeting, Robinson said it was
decided to make the bonus "a special
order for a date in January - the
exact date to be hereafter fixed."
"Many advocates of the bonus," he
said, "feel that it is impracticable to
secure action during the present ses-
sion and realize that attempts to
attach bonus legislation as riders to
bills on other subjects would render
it impossible to secure full considera-
tion and to develop the strength of
any fair bonus measure that might
be advanced as a rider.
"The committees felt that this sub-
ject should not be complicated with
other legislation, but should be dealt
with separately and on its merits."

Statement Is Basedl On His
Follow-Up Study Of '33
And '34 Graduates
By GUY M. WHIPPLE, JR. '
Graduates of the University -
especially men - who have prepared
to fill teaching positions are finding
more and better opportunities in
their field than was the case two
years ago, Prof. George E. Myers of
the School of Education said at thea
afternoon conference held yesterday
in University High School.
Professor Myers said he based his;
statement on the results of a follow-
up study of graduates of the Uni-
versity who were granted teachers'#
certificates in 1933 and 1934.
"Of those who replied 77 per cent,
of the 1933 women and 79 per cent
of the 1934 women said they were
employed, while 79 per cent of the
1933 men and 90 per cent of the 1934
men reported employment of some
kind," the speaker said.
"The percentage engaged in teach-
ing increased from 1933 to 1934, for
the women from 41 to 53 per cent and
for the men from 25 to 52 per cent.
The percentage teaching in secondary
schools, for which nearly all pre-
pared, was decidedly larger in the
case of the later group. Of those in
other work than teaching almost none
of the 1934 group were claimed by re-
tail selling and common labor while
20 of the earlier group were in oc-
cupations of this type."
The earnings reported by the 1934
group were higher than those of the
1933 group, though not markedly so,
Professor Myers said. "Of the former,
70.7 per cent reported earnings above
$750 per year and 35.3 per cent above
$1,000 per year; for the latter, the

corresponding percentages are 63.5
and 24.6."
Among other things pointed out by1
Professor Myers were:
That a substantially larger percent-
age of the 1934 group reported as-
sistance from the University Bureau
of Appointments in securing posi-
tions.
That members of the 1934 group;
devoted less time to reading and to
recreation than did those of the earl-
ier group.
That the unemployed reported
about 4.5 hours per week more time
spent in reading and recreation than
the employed.
That the men read more social-
economic material than the women,!
while the women read more fiction
than the men.
That the women of 1934 show less
interest than those of 1933 in the
social types of recreation and more
in outdoor sports and games.

Florence Jackson To Be
Cross-Examined In 14th
Day Of Murder Trial
Prosecutor McCrea
Seeks Breakdown
Attorney For Schweitzer
Will Try To Establish
That He Was Beaten
DETROIT, July 6. - Florence
Jackson's cross-examination by the
prosecution Wednesday morning will
open the fourteenth day of the Wil-
liam Schweitzer murder trial in
Recorder's Judge John A. Boyne's
Court.
Florence, who is the second defense
witness, took the stand for direct
testimony Tuesday, and denied that
she had seen the shooting of Howard
Carter Dickinson in the early morn-
ing of June 27. She was behind the
car when the first shot was fired, she
testified.
Three Girls Involved
With her sister Loretta and Jean
Miller, Florence and Schweitzer are
on trial for first-degree murder in
connection with Dickinson's death.
Other defense witnesses Wednesday
probably will be newspaper photo-
graphers. They will be called by
Schweitzer's attorney, who will seek
to establish that Schweitzer appeared
to have been beaten. Several chac-
ter witnesses for Schweitzer also will
be called.
If Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea's
cross-examination of Florence Jack-
son is as fiery as it was when he
examined Schweitzer Tuesday, court
attendants felt that the woman might
break down under it.
The three women defendants have
shown signs of severe nervous ten-
sion throughout the trial, and their
attorneys realize that their appear-
ance on the witness stand would be
their severest test.
"No Papers Found"
During direct examination by her
attorney, John J. Hogue, Florence
said that Schweitzer had remarked
that he could not "find the papers I
wanted in Dickinson's pockets" after
the killing. The papers, it was inti-
mated, had to do with Dickinson's
work on the $40,000,000 estate of
William A. Yawkey. Attorneys for
the women claim that the murder
was not for robbery.
Contrasting with the testimony of
Schweitzer, Florence Jackson said
that Dickinson treated all the women
"like a gentleman." She quoted him
as saying:
"I would like to see you girls get
started in a show of some kind."
One of the State's contentions is
that Schweitzer killed Dickinson to
get money enough to finance such a
show, which he had been planning
with the women for some time.
"Keep Your Mouths Shut"
Florence described frequent in-
stances when, she said, Schweitzer
ordered all the women to "keep their
mouths shut," and declared that they
were equally incriminated with him.
She testified that Schweitzer said,
when the women repeatedly asked
him on their flight from Detroit to
let Loretta go home, because she was
ill:
"Nobody's going home. I've still
got that gun. There are two bullets
in it, one for Loretta and one for
me. I have ways of taking care of all
of you.,

Florence complained that police
gave her practically no sleep from
the time she was arrested until she
was finally named in the warrant.
She said that they took her to the
police showup four or five times a
day, and repeatedly led her down-
stairs to the Prosecutor's office for
questioning.

MRS. FRED ALGER
Mrs. Fred Alger
Resi ns State's
LiquorBoard
Fitzgerald-McDonald Fight
Not Mentioned As Being
Cause Of Resignation
(By The Associated Press)
LANSING, Aug. 6.- Mrs. Fred M.
Alger, Detroit socialite, resigned today
as a member of the state liquor con-
trol commission.
She gave the illness of her sister,
Mrs. William Moffet, of Bar Harbor,
Me., as the cause of her resignation.
Gov. Fitzgerald accepted the resigna-
tion "with reluctance."
The resignation of Mrs. Alger tele-
graphed from Bar Harbor made no
reference to the dispute now raging
between Chairman John S. McDon-
ald and the governor. It read in
part:
"I hereby tender by resignation as
a member of the state liquor con-
trol commission. Due to the illness
of my sister, Mrs. William Moffet,
which will necessitate my absence
from Detroit and Lansing a great part
of the time, I shall be unable to ful-
fill my duties. I deeply appreciate
your having given me this opportun-
ity to serve."
The Governor telegraphed in re-
ply:
"Your resignation received and ac-
cepted. Very sorry to hear of your
sister's illness. I accept the resigna-
tion with reluctance. You have
served faithfully and well."
The governor said he would not
make an immediate appointment to
fill the vacancy created by the resig-
nation. He said it was too early to
name any one who might be a can-
didate for the position.
On accepting Mrs. Alger's resigna-
tion, the governor temporarily aban-
doned hs dispute with McDonald and
decided to take his vacation im-
mediately. He will leave for Mack-
inac Island late today.

CHICAGO, Aug. 6.- The path of
Joe Louis, Detroit's gift to heavy-
weight boxing, reaches another im-
portant milestone when the Negro
conqueror of Primo Carnera meets
King Levinsky at Comiskey Park to-
morrow night.
More than 50,000 ring fans are ex-
pected to jam into the ball grounds

To many old-time boxing experts, the
question was mainly one of how long
Levinsky could be expected to las
with the meteoric Negro.
Predictions were overwhelmingly in
favor of the Detroit boy because o
his ability to box as well as to punch
are decidedly in advantage over th
y free - mostly wild - swinging of th
s former Maxwell Street fish peddler.
Louis is expected to enter the rope

Young Missouri Suspect
Says He Is Innocent In
Murder Of Dr. Bauer
5-Day Grilling Fails
To Shake Carpenter
State Will Call Widow Of
Slain Doctor As Witness
In Trial
CHICAGO,, Aug. 6. - ('P)--Mande-
ville W.- Zenge, young Missouri car-
penter, pleaded innocent today to the
charge that he murdered Dr. Wal-
ter J. Bauer, Kirksville, Mo., osteo-
path, by mutilation.
The plea first was entered in Zen-
ge's behalf by his attorney, Joseph
Green, when the prisoner was ar-
raigned before Judge Justin F. Mc-
Carthy in felony court. Judge Mc-
Carthy then asked Zenge if he wished
to make a plea personally. Zenge
said he did, and pleaded innocent.
Remanded To Custody
He was remanded to the custody of
the sheriff and taken from state's at-
torney's officials, who in five days of
questioning had been unable to shake
his contention that he knew nothing
of the death of Dr. Bauer.
At the state's request, Judge Mc-
Carthy postponed the hearing until
Aug. 20.
Charles S. Dougherty, assistant
state's attorney, said he wished more
time to complete his, investigation at
Kirksville, Mo., home of Dr. Bauer's
widow, to whom the osteopath was
married July 14.
Judge McCarthy asked Zenge to
spell his name. Zenge complied. Then
the court requested him to write it.
Zenge was about to do so when Jo-
seph Roach one of his lawyers ob-
jected.
"Write it anyway," said the judge.
Zenge Mystified
Zenge, unshaven and haggard,
looked from the attorney to the court
juncVtainly. Attorney Roach 're-
peated his objection and the judge
then turned to the formality of the
plea.
After Zenge made his plea, the
judge asked his counsel if he still
objected to his client's signing his
name. Roach replied that he did.
Later Attorney Green said he un-
derstood the signature was wanted for
comparison with the signature on
"some letters."
None of Zenge's relatives were in
the crowded courtroom. Zenge said
he understood his father, J. Andy
Zenge, a dairy man, hd returned
to his home in Canton, Mo.
Later Prosecutor Dougherty went
before the grand jury. He explained
how Dr. Bauer was found mutilated
in his automobile here last Wednes-
day and how he died from loss of
blood five hours later.
Mrs. Bauer Is Witness
The first grand jury witness was
the widow, Mrs. Louise Schaffer
Bauer, childhood sweetheart of Zenge.
Her brother-in-law, Joseph Bauer of
Cleveland, was called later. On his
death bed, detectives said at the in-
quest, Dr. Bauer blamed a "Jones"
as the man who kidnaped him from
Ann Arbor and mutilated him after
forming him to drive to Chicago.
A fellow guest of Dr. Bauer at Ann
Arbor hotel pointed out Zenge as
being the "Jones" who stayed at the
same hotel and disappeared at the
time Dr. Bauer was kidnaped.
The comely young widow spent last
night in the technical custody of a
policewoman at a south side hotel.
tThis, said Dougherty, was merely a
precaution to hold her as a material
witness. He said she was not hos-
tileto the state. Mrs. Bauer was ex-
pected to return to her home in Kirks-
ville soon.
"I would not be surprised if Louise
testified against me," Zenge said in

an interview, "but I don't.know what
she could testify about. She doesn't
owe me anything."
