Is Now Head Of Michigan
Municipal League And
University Bureau
The National Resources Committee
has appointed Harold D. Smith, di-
rector of the Michigan Municipal
League and head of the University of
Michigan's Bureau of Government,
to its Committee on Research on Ur-
banism, it was learned yesterday.
Smith was notified of his appoint-
ment in a letter from Charles W.
Eliot, II, executive officer of the
National Resources Committee, acting
for its chairman, Harold L. Ickes,
secretary of the Interior and Federal
Public Works Administrator.
Will Help Government
The Urbanism Research Committee,
according to Smith, will help the
Federal government learn the role
American cities have played in the
country'sdevelopment and lay the
groundwork for directing that role
toward supplying a "fuller life" for
city dwellers.
Smith said the Committee's work
is expected to result in formulation
of a national policy of broader social
planning through the cooperation of
city, state and Federal planning
agencies and programs.
Evry city and village in the coun-
try, he declared, would be brought
into the study to determinethe trend,
rate and extent of urban develop-
ments and their effects on American
political, legal, economic and social
Qrdp . pn the N tiona llture,
racial stock and character.
To Recommend Changes
The Committee had been request-
ed, Smith stated, to recommend the
changes necessary to remove the un-
desirable effects of fiture city growth
trends; to declare what constitutes
minimum essentials of a well-ordered
city, and advise how to accomplish
these essentials in meeting such prob-
lems as housing, recreation, unem-
ployment, health, water and land
use, communication and finances.
Smith quoted Eliot's letter that
Clarence A. Dykstra, city manager
of Cincinanti, had accepted chair-
manship of the Committee. The
other members are H. M. L. Wilson,
assistant secretary of agriculture;
Arthur C. Comey, professor of city
planning, Harvard University; Car-
ter Goodrich, professor of economics,
Columbia University; Louis Wirth,
professor of sociology, University of
Chicago; and. Louis Brownlow, di-
rector in the Public Administration
Clearing House of Chicago.;
Long Prominent
Smith has long been prominent in
planning and municipal government-
al affairs. He was a member of Qov--
ernor Fitzgerald's State Planning
Commission which early this year in-
ventoried a billion and a half dollars
worth of projects available for Mich-
igan's share of President Roosevelt's
$4,800,000,000 work relief appropria-
tion.
For five years secretary of the
Michigan Planning Conference,
Smith is a director of the American
Municipal Association, national
union of State Municipal Leagues
and one of the groups that requested
the National Resources Committee to
conduct research on urbanism.
The Michigan Municipal League,
which has headquarters here, is com-
posed of the majority of cities and
villages in the state.

Crawling down the steep side of a
granite mountain where a misstep
would have meant a 2,000-foot plunge
to death, Yosemite park rangers to-
day rescued Miss Elizabeth Lorimer,
23, of Chicopee, Mass., and her com-
panion, Robert Tait, this side of
Inglewood, Calif.
Miss Lorimer appeared little the

worse for the ordeal, although she
spent the whole night clinging to a
rock for her life. She was clad only

Liquor 'traffic
e fom Move
GetsApproval
Commission Agrees To All
But One Suggestion In
Governor's Resolution
LANSING, Aug. 7. - (AP)-- The
governor's liquor traffic reform pro-
gram received partial approval today
from the state liquor control com-
mission.
Secretary of State Orville Atwood
introduced a resolution, drafted by
Gov. Fitzgerald, which covered the
major points of the Governor's sug-
gestions for "cleaning up" abuses in
administration of the liquor act. All
but one were adopted.
The -commission agreed to:
Put inspection of liquor commis-
sion licensees and enforcement of the
liquor at in the hii f the State
Police as soon as the suitable pro-
gram for administration is completed.
Cut salaries and pare personnel
until the commission is operating
within its legislative appropriation.
Reduce the number of state stores.
from 101 to 75.
A recommendation that all obstruc-
tions preventing a clear view into
drinking places be removed, that
booths more than 42 inches high be
eliminated in such places, and all
licensees be forced to keep their
places well lighted was tabled tem-
porarily.
Chairman John S. McDonald and
Commissioner H. F. Gormely decided
to consult police authorities before
adopting that resolution but agreed
to it in principal.
A previous suggestion of the Gov-
ernor that the number of specially
designated contributors be increased,
that the commission hire a business
manager, and that a public relations
director be employed were not embod-
ied in the resolutions.
The suggestion of the business
manager previously had aroused Mc-
Donald's ire.
Major League Standings

Of Athletics
Says Depression
Aided Movement
Speaker Asserts Schools
Coming To Recognize
Demand For Instruction
By GUY M. WHIPPLE
Educational units are now taking
cognizance of the rapidly growing de-
mand for "co-education in recrea-
tion" and are not leaving the oppor-
tunities to indulge in them to the
home and to commercial agencies en-
tirely, it was asserted yesterday by
Prof. Elmer D. Mitchell, director of
intramural athletics here, at the edu-
cational conference held in University
High School.
Men. and women seeking co-educa-
tion in recreation have displayed a
significant desire to partcipate in
many of the popular forms of sport,
Professor Mitchell declared. Certain
forms of physical recreation such as
tennis, badminton, swimming, golf,
volleyball, table tennis, archery, bowl-
ing and similar activities have proven
surprisingly well adapted for mixed
groups, the speaked pointed out.
Schools Recognizing It
"Social dancing and folk dancing
have long been enjoyed by girls and
boys together, but now we see schools
devoting noon hours and free periods
to instruction in dancing," Professor
Mitchell said.
"As a result boys and girls are
learning dancing under wholesome
surroundings instead of picking up
the more objectionable steps at road-
houses and other unchaperoned
places. In addition, these students
are leaining many fritfie''iportant
factors in social deportment, man-
ners, and demeanor that otherwise
would be left to chance in a majority
of cases."
The youth of America -and of
the world -has made its own revolt
against a post-war decade in which
spending, gambling, sex-movies, and
other vicarious thrills made up the
routine of recreational existence for'
the mass of young men and women
when together, Professor Mitchell
declared.
Surprising Awakening
"There has been a surprising awak-
ening in the search for wholesome,
inexpensive, and healthful amuse-
ment for young people," he said. "The
news items from the recreational de-
partments of schools, colleges, and
social centers are filled withrefer-
ences to play days, dance festivals,
social dancing hours, mixer parties.
and mixed groups in the recreative
sports already mentioned."
As reasons for the swing towards
co-education in recreation Professor
Mitchell cited the fact that women
today are taller and heavier than
their sisters of a generation ago,
which makes for more equal competi-
tion with men; that men have for-
saken their devotion to the more
strenuous team sports and are de-
voting themselves increasingly to the
more "leisurely" sports; that women
are becoming emancipated from the
era of full sleeved middies, full length
bloomers, and long stockings.
"There is no question but that the
depression has stimulated the rapid-
ity of the growth of this new move-
ment," Professor Mitchell stated.

declared that "if it can be made easy
for tourists to come to Mackinac
Island without the admission of auto-
mobiles it would be much the pre-
ferable plan.
Commissioner Norton outlined to
the governor his plans, which include
stationing attractive girls at Mackinac
City and St. Ignace to advise tourists
crossing the Straits of Mackinac.
Norton pointed out that Mackinac
Island "is not a millionaire's resort"
and that accommodations can be ob-
tained here reasonably.
His plans includes the handling at
the two Straits towns of tourists'
automobiles at little or no expense
while the occupants are visiting the
island. At the same time represen-
tatives of hotels, transportation com-
panies and the island business men
planned to hold a meeting to work
out details of a co-operative plan
with the State along these lines.
"There is no question," the Gov-
ernor declared, "but that permitting
automobiles here would detract from
the charm and romance of this
beautiful island. If such a plan as
Commissioner Norton suggests can
be worked out and will bring results,
it would be much preferable to per-
mitting automobiles to come to Mack-
inac Island.

Sixteen Other Witnesses
For State Remain To Be

'Puts Finger' On
Elmer B. O'Hara
says Wilkowski Changed
Ballots With His Own
Hand InTestimony
DETROIT, Aug. 7.-The state's
star witness, Hallett A. (Bud) Ham-
lin, from the witness stand Wednes-
day tied 11 of the 54 recount con-
spiracy defendants to the alleged
Democratic plot to steal last fall's
election of secretary of state and at-
torney general.
Sixteen other State's witnesses re-
main to be heard at the examination
in progress before Recorder's Judge
John V. Brennan.
Names Leader
Hamlin "put the finger" on County
Clerk Elmer B. O'Hara, the State
Democratic chairman who petitioned
for the recount in behalf of Maj.
Gen. Guy M. Wilson; State Senator
Anthony J. Wilkowski, the recount
chairman, who, Hamlin said, altered
ballots with his own hand, and Dep-
uty County Clerk Franklyn K. Mor,
gan, the man who assembled the re-
count crew and supervised its ac-
tivity.
Hamlin also named as participants
in the plot to alter ballots the tally
sheet clerk, James Walker; the re-
county supervisors, Albert Skiffing-
ton, Bruno Nowicki, George James,
H. F. Raworth and Joseph Neill, and',
the two recounters at his table, T,
Emmett McKenzie and Chester Pons,
Guarded By State Police
Cross-examination had just begun
when the session ended. Defense
Attorney Edward P. Echlin had
gained Hamlin's admission that he
is living..at the,Fair Grounds Bar-
racks "either in the custody or the
possession" of the State Police.
On direct examinatiin Hamlin said
his first idea of what the recount
might be like came from a conversa-
tion with O'Hara in the state chair-
man's campaign office, 1027 Barlum
Tower. This was in November, while
O'Hara was making up his mind to
ask a recount in behalf of Wilson.
Hamlin said he told O'Hara he
thought the election count giving Or-
ville Atwood Republican, the office
of Secretary of State by 10,000 votes
was honest, but urged O'Hara to seek
a recount anyway. Hamlin said he
added that he knew several men he
wanted to put to work on the re-'
count.
Have you had any experience in a
recount?" Hamlin said O'Hara asked.
"No," Mamlin said he replied.
"We'll need men with experience,"
was O'Hara's answer, according to
Hamlin.
"Why?"
"Did you ever in your life hear of
a recount that was honest?" was
O'Hara's rejoinder, according to
Hamlin.
When the recount got under way
Friday night, Dec. 28, Hamlin said
he was assigned to a table with T.
Emmett McKenzie and Chester Pons,
Bruno Nowicki, one of the supervis-.
ors, came up said if they needed any
help with the ballots to call on him.
Charges Ballot-Marking
"McKenzie gave him to understand
that he knew what it was all about,
and that if Norwicki gave him a blue
lead he (Norwicki) wouldn't have to

worry about their table," Hamlin
said.
This was done, according to Ham-
lin, and McKenzie during the rest of
the time marked the ballots so as to
gain votes for Wilson and Patrick
H. O'Brien, Democratic candidate for
Attorney General, and candidate for
Atwood and Harry S. Toy, Republi-
can candidate for attorney general.
After they had been working about
two hours, Hamlin said he noticed
the blue lead was staining McKenzie's
fingers.
Dr. Bement Writes

DETROIT, Aug. 7. --- (A) - Detroit
meat dealers, anticipating another
week-end -of picketing by militant;
housewives, demanding lower prices,
asked law enforcement agencies of
the metropolitan area for more pro-
tection today.
Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea
promised prosecution of strikers who
resort to illegal measures to enforce
ther boycott. i
"There is no reason why a man
should close his business," the prose-
cutor told meat dealers of suburban
Hamtramck, who said their sales had
declined 75 per cent as a result of the
boycott.
"From the facts you present," Mc-
Crea told representatives of the
butchers, "this strike appears to be
a common law boycott -- which is il-
legal."
He promised to summon heads of
all law enforcement agencies in
Wayne county to.a special meeting
with the women leaders of three
principal strike committees to discuss
the situation.
Fourteen men and women have
been arrested during disturbances
which have extended over three
weeks. A woman picket and a police-
man were injured when a mob sought
to pour kerosene on a truckload of
meat.
The appeal to McCrea, and a sim-
ilar plea to Commissioner of Police
Heinrich A. Pickert, who asserted
that "peace will be enforced," re-
sulted from organization of an anti-
boycott movement by butchers yester-
day.
"We intend to end this strike in a
hurry," Chairman Peter Skladzien
announced after the dealers voted to
,override a minority's counsel to let the
boycott "run its course."

ZoeAGrand Jury 's
Action On Case
Bride Of Slain Doctor Is
First To Testify Before
Investigation Body
CHICAGO, Aug. 7. -(0P) - Mande-
ville W. Zenge, 26-year-old Missouri
carpenter, awaited today the action of
a grand jury which heard witnesses
attempt to link him to the mutilation
death of Dr. Walter J. Bauer, Kirks-
ville, Mo., chemistry professor.
Formally charged with Bauer's
slaying, Zenge entered a plea of in-
nocence yesterday while half a dozen
witnesses appeared before the grand
jury as the state sought murder in-
dictments against him.
The first to testify was Mrs. Louise
Schaffer Bauer, the widowed bride
who had been engaged to Zenge until
her marriage. Weeping and near
hysteria, she, told the jurors of her
romance with Zenge, which beganhin
childhood.
Atthe request of Charles S. Dough-
erty, assistant state's attorney Zenge's
hearing on a charge of murder was
continued to Aug. 20.
"We need more time to develop the
motive," he explained.
The state contended that Zenge was
the mysterious "Mr. Jones" who reg-
istered at Dr. Bauer's hotel in Ann
Arbor, Mich., forced the doctor at the
point of a gun to drive him to Chi-
cago, and then, after binding him,
performed the emasculation opera-
tion which resulted in his death.
Zenge, since his arrest in Chicago
a daydafter he admitted leaving a
"suicide" note announcing his plan
to jump into Lake Michigan, has
refused to discuss the slaying, or even
to admit he knew Dr. Bauer.
Mrs. Bauer, still shaken from her
visit to the grand jury, has agreed
to remain in technical custody of the
state's attorney pending Zenge's trial,
officials announced.
Zenge rested today in the county
jail after a four-day examination by
members of the state's attorney's of-
fice.

Fight Over In 2 Minutes
And 51 Seconds; King
Hits Mat Four Times
Referee Declares
A Technical Kayo
Levinsky Lands But One
Solid Punch -AWild
Right To The Head
By WILLIAM R. REED
(Michigan Daily Sports Editor)
COMISKEY PARK, CHICAGO,
Aug. 8.--It took shufflin' Joe Loui
of Detroit just two minutes and twen-
ty seconds tonight to prove that he is
the most dangerous slugger in boxing
- for in just that brief period Louis
scored a technical knockout over the
enigmatic King Levinsky, the second
in the Chicagoan's career and it came
in one round less than it took Max
Baer to put the Kingfish on the
canvas last year.
It was a cowed Kingfish who
stepped out to meet the Detroit sen-
sation and a beaten Kingfish after
the Brown Bomber had sent Levin
sky to the canvas for a count with a
right, left attack from close-in in
slightly over one minute. Twice again
in the next minute Louis landed dy-
namite rights which put the Kingfish
on the floor in a daze and only when
the former fish-peddler finally pulled
himself to his feet after hitting peti-
fully on his haunches in a corner did
a wise referee step between the two
fighters.
Not only was Louis' victory impres-
sive for the force of his punches,
but also for the cool use of his head
.which proved the final undoing of
the Kingfish. Levinsky laid but one
punch on Louis and it was a looping
right which the Brown Bomber calm-
ly had invited by laying himself wide
open to force Levinsky into action.
It was when the Kingfish took ad-
vantage of that manufactured open-
ing to come out of his shell that the
final slaughter was begun.
CHICAGO, Aug. 7. -('-Joe
Levinsky was knocked down four
times by Louis' vicious punches to
the head and body and was knocked
to the bottom ropes of the ring be-
fore Referee McGarrity ended the
one-sided battle. Levinskey was
downed for the count, of two the
first time.
The fifth or sixth punch that Louis
landed took Levinsky to his haunches,
coming at his feet at the count of
two. Louis charged after him lashing
out with terrific punches.

(By The Associated Press)
Flood waters, the worst in the state
since 1913, swept over East Central
Ohio Wednesday, claiming two lives.
Hundreds of families in Ohio, Wi-
consin and West Virginia were forced
to vacate their homes as continuous
heavy rains isolated or threatened
to cut off several towns from.com-
munication.
The Ohio watershed was threat-
ened as the Tuscarawas and Musking-
um Rivers reached peak stages. At
Massillon, 0., 150 families were forced
to flee their homes, railroad trains
were halted and basements in down-

town stores were flooded.
The .Ohio State Highway Depart-
ment announced that almost every
highway in Muskingum, Cochocton
and Guernsey counties was under
water. At Marietta the Muskingum
river, already bank-high began to

HUDSON, Aug. 7.- (U1)-- Mem-
bers of Michigan's warring Democ-
ratic factions laid aside their political
disputes yesterday afternoon to join
in a final tribute to Edward N. Frens-
dorf, whom they heard described as
the greatest campaigner of them all.
Scores of business associates, per-
sonal friends and political foes, as
well, attended the funeral services
for the veteran Democratic leader.
They heard the Rev. A. W. Kauff-
man, pastor of the Congregational
church, assert that Frensdorf "fought
becausehe had faith in his convic-
tions."

that Frensdorf, with whom he cam-
paigned in 1924, "truly personified
the virtues of faith, hope and char-
ity."
Representative Prentiss M. Brown,
of St. Ignace, also delivered a per-
sonal eulogy.
In his audience were Horatio J.
Abbott, of Ann Arbor, Democratic
committeeman, and Elmer B. O'Hara,
of Detroit, chairman of the Demo-
cratic state central committee. They
are the bitterest of political enemies
but both were honorary pallbearers.
