Senate Unanimous
In Serving Hopson
Contempt Citation

lities Boss Is Mapped
and Magnate

H. C. Is Unperturbed

He Pulls His Disappearing
Act Again With Senate
Trying To Keep Step
WASHINGTON, Aug. 14. --( ) -
By unanimous action, the Senate to-
day cited Howard C. Hopson, million-
aire utilities magnate, for contempt
and started immediate proceedings
to bring him before the bar of its lob-
by investigating committee,
Chairman Hugo Black, of the Lobby
Committee, announced that a writ
would be served upon Hopson to ap-
pear tomorrow, and that if he did
not appear a resolution authorizing
his arrest would be sought.
The Senate's action grew directly
from Hopson's refusal earlier in the
day to respond to a subpena served
by an agent of the committee. Wil-
liam A. Hill; his attorney, likewise was
cited by the Senate for alleged phys-
ical interference with efforts to serve
a subpena yesterday.
Jurney Is All Set
The Senate's dapper Sergeant-at-
arms, Col. Chesley W. Jurney, mapped
out an immediate tour of the city's
leading hotels in an effort to appre-
hend Hopson.
Waiting for Vice-President Garner
to sign the authorizing resolution,
Jurney adjusted a pair of bowed
glasses on a silken braid and jotted
down- tips as to where the again-
missing utilities magnate might be
The Senate action set the stage
for a Senate-House clash of incal-
culable proportions. Chairman John
J. O'Connor, of the House lobby. com-
mittee, whose investigators first
served a subpena on Hopson, asserted
that he would refuse to release him
from that summons so that the Sen-
ate might have him.
Speaker Joseph W. Byrns told
newspapermen that he would stand
by the House committee in its in-
sistence that it had prior right to
Hill earlier had had similar word
from O'Connor, even before Hopson
failed to appear before the Senate
Lobby Committee at 4 p.m., and the
contempt machinery was started.

said Hill, "but what can we do about

World Tradef
In Munitions
Shows Gains
Munition Exports From
America Show Noticeable
Gain Over 1933 Figure
Japanese, Italians
Are Major Buyers
Unusual June Increase In
U. S. Exports Of Raw
Products Is Noted
WASHINGTON, Aug. 14. - W -
Gains in international trade in war
materials and an unusual June in-
crease in United States exports of
raw products to Europe were disclosed
today by Commerce Department fig-
The armament figures showed a
fairly steady increase over the last
30 months in the world trade of sev-
eral nations.
Particularly noticeable in the war
shipment category was the record
gain of United States exports of cot-
ton linters. which are short cotton
fibers especially valuable for manu-
facturing explosives and the similar
record movement of scrap iron and
steel, major war raw material.
Japan and Italy were noticeable
especially as major customers over
the last several months for linters,
scrap metal and important chemi-
cals suitable for war use. France
also bought more linters and chemi-
United States exports of arms and
ammunition, while not large, gained
noticeably in 1934 over 1933 and were
continuing to gain the first half of
this year. South American countries
were the major customers for these
products. Russia, Germany and
China bought many airplanes and
airplane engines.
The June export gain to Europe
marked the first time in many months
when the current month has exceed-
ed the same month of the previous
year. Europe had been declining
steadily as this Nation's major cus-
tomers until June.

ister to France, acting upon instruc-
tions of his Government.

Machine To
BloodIn Use
Instrument Fights Sudden
Blocking Of Vessels With
Alternating Pressures
Physicians Report
FavorablyOn Plan
Dr. Maddock Outlines 3
Uses Of Apparatus For
Treatment Of Disease
Designed to bring blood to dying
feet, a machine is now in operation
at the University Hospital which is
enabling physicians to stage a fight
against the sudden blocking of blood
vessels and to combat the damage
which often occurs from hardened ar-
By alternating positive and nega-
tive pressures on the patient's leg,
the machine offers a means of de-
touring the blood stream around ob-
structed vessels into the foot, thus
counteracting the lack of blood which
the hardened artery has caused.
Known under the name of "Pa-
vaex" (pronounced pay-vex) the ma-
thine or apparatus consists of a py-
rex glass boot made air-tight with
a rubber cuff and a vacuum pump
which alternates the pressures within
the boot. The effect of the negative
pressure is to open up the arteries to
their maximum while the positive
pressure serves to push back the blood
through the vessel.
Culmination Of Research
The machine is the culmination of
research of this type beginning as far
back as the early nineteenth cen-
tury. It was given its present form
by Dr. Louis Hermann of Cincinnati,
at one time a student in the Univer-
sity medical school.
According to Dr. Walter G. Mad-
dock of the UniversityHospital. who
is in charge of its operation here,
Pavaex (an abbreviation for passive
vascular exercise which means the
encouragement of the Ulood flow
without the patient exercising any
energy on his own part) offers suc-
cessful treatment in three types of
cases. These are :
(1.) Frozen feet.
(2.) Casesnwhere sudden blocking
of the blood vessels has taken place,
either by a blood clot originating at
the affected site- or by blood clots
breaking off at some other spot and
stopping there.
(3.) Where there is a moderate de-
ficiency of the blood supply to the
extremities. In these early stages
of the diseases causing this condi-
tion, benefit may be obtained by open-
ing up other vessels.
Reports Favorable
Favorable reports have been pre-
sented at several medical meetings
on the use of this unique principle of
treatment. Pavaex has been able in
numerous cases to make a new col-
lateral circulation when the blood
stream has been impeded. Its func-
tion, in this respect, is analagous
to the course of a stream which,
when dammed up in its main route,
will shift its current down side
streams until it again reaches the
principal course.
Itis believed that Pavaex therapy
is a definite accomplishment in the
fight against the mutilating results
of a deficiency of blood in the ex-
tremities. Nothing is more gratify-
ing than this saving of limbs in in-
dividuals in which gangrene was im-
minent, physicians say.

The Pavaex method of treatment
is one more use of physical means
in the cure of disease. Heat and
cold have been used for centuries;
the healing effects of various form,
of light have been well-established;
particularly in the treatment of bone
tuberculosis, and now pressure h;
added with, what many doctors term
promising results.

HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 14. - (') -
Alice Faye is this kind of girl: She
prefers a hundred dollar husband to
a million dollar movie contract.
Alice is as frank as her hair is
blond-and that's very blond-so
she doesn't mind being asked ques-
tions. The query had to do with her
future, in the event her contract isn't
renewed when it expires this fall.
Alice likely will be asked to stay
here and enhance the pictures, but
there's always a possibility that
something will happen to change the
mind of the felow who has to do with
"I'd really rather be married than
working," said Alice. "That is, if I
catch the right fellow. Why? Be-
cause I'd rather have someone else
worry about the pay check. If I
ieally and truly fell in love, what po-
sition the fellow holds or what his in-
come is would make no difference to
me. I'd marry him if I loved him.
That is, if he asked me.
She Likes Pictures
"Oh sure, I like pictures and I like
to work. But I've been working nearly
10 years (that makes her about 22)
and I think that's long enough for a
gal to struggle."
A lady, of course, has a right to
change her mind!
Coincidentally, Alice is the heroine
of "Ball of Fire," a yarn having to do
with a New York chorus girl's efforts
to make good and to get into the
movies. In many respects, it par-
allels her own career.
All amateur airplane pilots have
difficulty getting passengers and the
Hollywood amateurs are no excep-
tion. George Brent at long last in-
duced one of his closest friends to
take a trip with him at the controls.
The friend is Catherine Higgins, a
middle-aged Irish woman who oper-
ates the cafe on the Warner lot where
George works. Their friendship dates
back to George's arrival here. When
he discovered Miss Higgins also was
born in Ireland, he made her his
confidante. He told her about his
romances and his hopes and his
troubles. And Catherine advised him
as one Irisher would another.
Powell Ties Brent
Once a week, regularly, for more
than a year George urged Catherine
to take a ride with him. She finally
consented. "Twas bumpy, but nice,"
said the lady after her first time
The results of a vote on the "most
eligible bachelor" among a group of
30 chorines are interesting. William
Powell and George Brent tied for
first place. Nelson Eddy was second
choice. Noel Coward and Dick Powell
tied for third and Franklin D. Roose-
velt, Jr., and Ronald Colman tied for
next place.'

Death. Of Blue
Eare Results
In Lower Pay
WASHINGTON, Aug. 14.-VP)--
NRA observers have reported to head-
quarters that some 12,000 to 13,00C
American employers have cut wages
or increased hours or both since the
old Blue Eagle met its death.'
The figures are not official as yet
and authorities decline to attach sig-
nificance to them publicly on the
ground that too few companies have
been covered and that more time
is needed to develop any trends fully.
The reports say the predominant
type of departure from previous con-
ditions is hour raising. NRA has
lists of some 8,000 to 9,000 employers
who are declared to have increased
hours since June 1. Whether these
employers increased weekly wages ac-
cordingly was not shown by the lists.
It was said that the bulk of the
wage cutting and hour increasing is
among smaller firms.

Almost as he spoke, the Senate
committee issued its citation and1
Black moved quickly to the Senate
floor to obtain action upon it. t

templated action capped a day ofl

lie charge, given in answer to a ques-
tion by Cox. In a bar y audible
voice, Hopson took it bac .
The House hearing was hardly over
before Hopson was tagged with the
Senate committee's subpena. Emerg-
ing from the hearing room he found
persistent Joseph McCarthy, Senate
committee agent waiting with the
same summons that he tried futilly
to serve yesterday. It commanded his
appearance "instanter."
Then Hopson went into his famous
disappearing act again. Reporters,
photographers and spectators en-
gaged in a dash for the Senate hear-
ing room. The committee had as-
sembled. All waited restlessly, eyes on
the door. No Hopson.

Haile Selassie Advised
To Import U.S. Skunk
NEW YORK, Aug. 14. - (A') - Em-
peror Haile Selassie ought to import
some American skunks, Explorer Roy
Chapman Andrews advised today, as
he spoke disdainfully of Ethiopian
plansto use civet cats as offensive
weapons against Italy.
"The scent of the civet cat is not
nearly so strong as that of our native
skunk," he said. "The civet cat's
odor is strong, but it's not disagree-
able. In fact, I rather like it. The
use of civet cats would be a tremen-
dous failure."

Must File Applications
This means that students desiring
work of this kind, which in the past
has included clerical, research, li-
brary, and assistants' work in the
University, must get their applica-
tions in to the office of the dean of
students in the near future.
Professor Gram explained that
during tie two years the FERA was
in operaion here there have been a
number of cases of worthy students
who have not been placed because
they neglected to get their applica-
tions in early.
It is necessary that distribution of
the work be finished early so that
those who are acepted will be able
to come to Ann Arbor with the as-
surance that they have a job, and
for this reason those who wait until
th elast minute, regardless of the
merit of their individual cases, may
find all the openings filled.
According to a bulletin recently is-
sued by President Alexander G.
Ruthven, the funds allotted to the
University shall be used for socially
desirable work exclusive of that which
is ordinarily financed by funds avail-
able for student aid.
Awaiting Word
At the present time the committee,
Consisting of Professor Gram, Dean
Joseph A. Bursley, and J. C. Chris-
tenson, controller of the University,
ire awaiting word from Washington
in order that they may plan on the
number who will be given work, the
kind of work, age limits, and other
qualifications. They will work in this
inder the general direction of Presi-
dent Ruthven.
In the past students have had a
maximum number of hours which
they might work' in any one month,
at the rate of 40 cents an hour.
Professor Gram explained that in
order to be eligible for the work stu-
dents must have demonstrated their
scholastic ability and must show their
need of assistance. Applications and
f the actual fitting of the applicants
to the jobs will be handled by Miss
Elizabeth Smith in the office of the
e dean of students, Room 2, University
e Hall.
1 It is understood that the National
Youth Administration will have
charge of the student aid program in
the nation during the coming year,
