tiversary Of

>ld Turmoil

By JOSEPH MATTES
While nations of the world bristle
with independence and seek to isolate
themselves further behind economic
and political barriers, their cities are
organizing internationally to solve
their common problems of local gov-
ernment -and a member of the Uni-
versity faculty, Harold D. Smith, di-
rector of the University Bureau of.
Government since last fall and di-
rector of the Michigan Municipal
League for the past eight years, is one
of the authorities on government who
have been selected to help direct the
movement.
Mr. Smith will serve on the per-
manent bureau, or board of directors,
of the International Union of Cities
and Local Officials.
Members of the bureau of the In-
ternational Union of Cities include
such figures of world renown as Ed-
uoard Herriot, the three-time premier
of France who has lately been one
of the leading figures in France's
economic crisis.
Other countries which will have
representatives of their cities on the
Bureau are Great Britain, Germany,
Holland, the Netherlands, Roumania,
Hungary, Spain, Poland, Belgium,
Switzerland, and Czechoslovakia.

Serving with Mr. Smith in the
American membership of the Bureau,
which is the largest, are Mayor Daniel
W. Hoan of Milwaukee, president of
the United States Conference of May-
ors; Louis Brownlow, director of
Public A d m i n i s t r a t i o n Clearing
House; Clarence E. Ridley, executive
director of the International City
Managers' Association, and Paul V.
Betters, executive director of the
United States Conference of Mayors
and of the American Municipal Asso-
ciation, of which Mr. Smith is past
president.
The ultimate objective of the In-
ternational Union, Mr. Smith says, is
to establish in Europe, probably at
the present secretariat in Brussels,
a point of distribution of local gov-
ernmental affairs throughout the
cries of the member countries.
Also anticipated, he said, is some
type of instruction in the science of
municipal government, including
training of officials already in public
service, and training young persons
aspiring to municipal careers.
Universities will play a large part,
Mr. Smith believes, in the work of
the Union by, aiding in the compila-
tion and exchange of information on
municipal affairs among members,

Summer Session Students Will
Visit Downtown Detroit Today

Important institutions in downtown
Detroit will be observed by Summer
Session students today. The ex-
Aursion group leaves from Angell Hall
at 8 a. m.
The all-day tour of Michigan's
principal city will be conducted by
Prof. Louis J. Rouse of the mathe-
matics department, who is in charge
of all trips except those to Niagara
Falls and to Put-in-Bay in Lake
Erie, which are in charge of Prof.
R alph L. Belknap of the geology de-
partment.
At the Detroit News Building,
which houses a plant exemplifying
all that is best in the mechanics of
production of a modern newspaper,
the Summer Session excursionists will
view the editorial rooms, art depart-.
ment, the composing rooms, and the
gigantic presses. Next the party will
tour the downtown business district,
devoting its attention principally to
Washington Boulevard, Grand Circus
Park, and lower Woodward Avenue.
Belle Isle is next on the program.
Then comes the all-important stop
for luncheon at the Fisher Building
cafeteria.
After the noon hour the party will
remain for a time in the same build'
ing to inspect the broadcasting stu-
dios of Radio Station WJR. At the

Detroit Institute of Arts a staff mem-
ber will interpret for the party the
much-disputed Diego Rivera fres-
coes, and will serve as a guide through
the Institute's many valuable col-
lections. The Institute boasts dis-
plays of modern and medieval Euro-
pean Art, late and early Roman and
Greek art, Asiatic art, and colonial,
nineteenth century, and contempor-
ary American art.
From there the University party
will cross Woodward Avenue to the
white marble Public Library, known
as a splendid example of early Ital-
ian Renaissance architecture. Al-
though only a short time can be de-
voted to the main rooms of the Li-
brary, ample opportunity will be af-
forded to see the famous murals of
Gari Melchers and others. The.Ital-
ian Renaissance ceilings, the ex-
quisite stained glass windows, and the
portico ceiling of mosaics will also
be pointed out; ,
The next trip to be sponsored by
the Summer Session is a morning
visit to the schools of the Cranbrook
Foundation, in Bloomfield Hills, on
Saturday, July 6. Reservations for
this excursion must be made at the-
office of the Summer Session, in Room
1213 Angell, Hall, before 5 p. m. Fri-
day, July 5. Expenses to cover round
trip bus tickets will total $1.25. y

Carl C. Oglesbee, Dearborn coun-
cilman and proprietor of a restaurant,
identified Dickinson's body today as
that of a man who visited his bar
about 1 a.m. Thursday morning with
two companions.
Oglesbee and his bartender, Rich-
ard Watson both viewed the body.
Watson also identified Dickinson as
the customer.
"One of the men was very big. He
probably weighed 250 pounds. The
other was small," Oglesbee said of the
two men.
"Dickinson," Watson said, "asked
for 'half a shot' of the best whisky we
had. I served it to him. The other
men had beer."
Oglesbee said "Dickinson" paid for
the drinks, taking a bill from a large
roll. He said they left as soon as
they had finished their drinks.
Margaret Reuter, 26-year-old cash-
ier at the restaurant, said she noticed
the man identified as Dickinson "be-
cause of his moustache." She said
she saw him take a large roll of bills
from his pocket but did not recall
whether he carried a brief case of top
coat.
In trying to reconstruct the killing,
police said Dickinson's body had been
dumped into Rouge park some dis-
tance from the point where he was
killed:.The body was coatless.

Take Doubleheader From
St. Louis As Greenberg
Hits Three Homers
ST. LOUIS, June 28 - Downing St.
Louis in both ends of a doubleheader,
Detroit Tigers today regained third
place in the American League pen-
nant race. Behind the four-hit
pitching of Elden Auker Detroit won
the first, 10 to 1, and took the second,
7 to 2, as Victor Sorrell allowed the
Browns six safeties.
Hank Greenberg, Detroit's larrup-
ing first baseman, was the center of
the Tiger attack as he stretched his
league leadership by pounding out
three home runs to boost his season
total to 23. Defensively, the Tiger
star was in on four double plays
which cut down potential St. Louis
scoring.
Getting their runs in pairs, the
Tigers coupled scores in five innings
of the first game on a total of 11" hits
off three pitchers, Cain, Hansen and
Coffman. In the second game Detroit
garnered the same number of hits off
Russ Van Atta and Gerald Walkup.
Cain was the loser in the first, Van
Atta in the second.
The entire Tiger lineup except for
Owen and Sorrell, who failed to con-
nect in the second game, was repre-
sented in the hitting. Pete Fox con-
nected for three hits with two doubles
and a triple.
Goslin extended his string of
games in which he has hit safely te
16, hitting in both games of the
double header.
Detroit advanced to within four
games of the league-leading New
York Yankees by today's two victor-
ies, and gained a half game on Cleve-
land, although the Indians defeated
Chicago.

Appointment Of
Yale Professor
Is Announced'
To Come Here To Instruct

Archeology
The appointment of Dr. Clark Hop-
kins, now associated with Yale Uni-
versity, as an associate professor of
Greek and Latin on the University
faculty was announced yesterday at
the office of President Alexander G.

Oxford, and from 1921-27 as an in-
structor in English and Latin at Rice
Institute, Houston, Tex.

WASHINGTON, June 28 -- () -
Charles Yates, of Georgia Tech, and
Johnny Fischer, of Michigan, former
winners of the crown, saw their hopes
of another title fly away today before
the withering fire of a pair of south-
westerners, Ed White, of Texas, and
Fred Haas, of Louisiana, in the semi-
finals of the National Intercollegiate
golf championship.
Playing a spectacular brand of golf
that was almost as"hot" as the heat
wave that burned down on the Con-
gressional course, the slender black-
haired White upset the 1934 victor,
Yates, by a 4 and 3 margin.
Simultaneously, the gangling Lou-
isiana sophomore concocted even
more of a surprise by bowling over
Fischer,'the veteran Walker Cup ace
and 1932 titlist, 5 and 3.
White's victory was doubly pleas-
ing to the quiet-mannered Texan, for
just a year ago he ran into Yates in
the final of this tournament at Cleve-
land and was beaten, 5 and 3. He
started out early today to even up
the old score with the Georgian, win-
ning the first two holes and never al-
lowing Yates to go ahead. For the
33 holes that the match lasted, White
was one under par.
Plays Steady Golf
Haas' golf was steady but not
nearly so sensational as that of his
36-hole final rival from the adjoining
state. In fact it was Fischei.'s' er-
rors as much as Haas' playing that
brought about the Wolverine's de-
feat. Johnny had no less than seven
three-putt greens.
Haas, nineteen-year-old lad who
won the Southern Amateur and Wes-
tern Junior last su nmer, was trap-
ped to lose the third but won the
fourth when Fischer ran into the first
of his epidemic of three-putt greens,
another of which he had on the sev-
enth. Fischer played well on in two
for a birdie on the eighth, but re-
quired three putts to lose the ninth.
The Michigan boy three-putted
the tenth, drove into a ditch on the
eleventh and won the twelfth to be-
come only one down as Haas took
two to come out of a trap. Fischer
three-putted the thirteenth but won
the fifteenth as Haas was short. Fred
put an approach six inches from the
cup to win the eighteenth with a
birdie three and to go to lunch two
up.
Misses Four-Foot Putt
Haas won the twenty-fourth as
Fischer missed a four-footer and the
twenty-seventh when Johnny again
required three putts. They had halved
the twenty-third and twenty-sixth in
birdie fours. Fischer sank a 12-footer
for a birdie on the thirty-first but
lost the next as he missed the green.
Haas wound things up with a 15-foot,
putt for a birdie on the thirty-third.
White, a twenty-one-year-old boy
from Bonham, Tex., won the first and
second, when Yates three-putted and
drove into the rough, but Charley
squared it with a birdie three on the
fourth and a par on the seventh,
where White three-putted, Ed bonged
in a six-footer for an eagle on the
eighth, but Yates evened it up with a
deuce on the short ninth.
Ed got down a 15-footer fo a birdie
on the tenth but Charley came level
again as White missed the short four-
teenth green. It was the last time
the Georgian could look ahead with-
out a deficit for White rammed in a
twelve-footer for another birdie on
the sixteenth and they halved the
eighteenth with birdie three.
The Texan got a birdie four on the
nineteenth, lost the twenty-second
to Yates' birdie, manufactured
through a 15-foot putt, and then won
the twenty-third, twenty-fourth and
twenty-sixth.
Charley found a ditch on the
twenty-third, missed a short putt on
the next and bowed to White's birdie
four on the twenty-sixth. Yates won
the thirtieth with a par three but
White rammed in another birdie on
the thirty-first to go four up as they

BEDFORD SPRINGS, Pa., June 28.
-.(to)-Prof. Edson R. Sunderland of
the University of Michigan warned
today that the country's legal proce-

by judicial councils if courts are to
meet increased public needs.
"Courts are not absolutely indis-

As procedure slows down, as costs
