Hopkins, Official Ambassador,,
To Inspect University Empire

Prof. Louis A. Hopkins, director and
official ambassador of the Summer
Session, will make his 'first visit of
1935 to some of the numerous units of
the University lying outside of Ann
Arbor, when 'he leaves the city at
noon today enroute to Golden Lake,
site of the University forestry station.
Professor Hopkins' trip will take
the better part of two weeks for he
will not be back at his desk here un-
til July 12. He will go from here with
Mrs. Hopkins to the Hopkins sum-
mer home at Crystal Lake, Frankfort,
where the two will remain over Sun-
On- Monday morning the director
and his wife will take a boat across
Lake Michigan to Menominee where
they will separate. Professor Hop-
kins will continue to the forestry sta-
tion at Golden Lake, while his wife
will go to Iron River.
At the forestry station, where 48
University students are in attendance,
the Summer Session head will spend

Monday night and Tuesday. He
jokingly remarked yesterday that "if
I am reported in the hospital there,
it will simply mean that all is well
and there is no placse else for me to
Tuesday morning, Professor Hop-
kins and Prof. Pobert, Jr., of the
School of Forestry and Conservation
will survey the resources of the com-
plete area on which the station is
located. Professor Craig is a member
of the staff at the station.
That afternoon the director will go'
to Iron River where he will meet Mrs.
Hopkins and the two will then pro-
ceed west across the upper peninsula
to Houghton and Fort Wilkins at the
very western tip. They will continue
along the southern shore of Lake Su-j
perior to St. Ignace on Thursday and
that evening will' cross the Straits to
Mackinac Island where they will
meet their son, Louis, Jr., who is
spending the summer on the island.

Better Adult
Education In
State Is Seen
Characterized By Fisher
As 'Original Education
In Conference Speech
Asks Broad Type
Of Adult Training
Narrow Plan Of Courses
Would Attract Very Few
Adults, Educator Says
A belief that adult education in
Wichigan is rapidly advancing was
xpressed by Dr. Charles A. Fisher,
assistant director of the Extension
Division of the University, who yester-
ay presented "Adult Education in
MIichigan" as one of the Educatioral
Conference lectures in University
High School.
Dr. Fisher characterized adult edu-
ation as "the original education,"
pointing to the teachings of such old-
ime philosophers as Socrates and
Plato as examples. Later, he said,
England adopted a plan whereby Ox-
ford professors would lecture in the
small mill towns periodically. This
plan, he said, has strongly contributed
o England's high standing in ad-
vanced adult educational nations.
He made a plea to too assiduous
advocates of adult education, asking
hem "not to lay the training in
arrow grooves."
Is Self-Directive
"What is the thing that gives
adult education its divine spark?" he
asked. "It is because it is self-direc-
Ave. It needs no artificial stimulant."
Dr. Fisher pointed out that only
a wide variety of courses could in-
duce the adult to take educational
courses, whereas a narrow one, one
with only certain highly recommend-
ed courses, would repel adults. Adults,
he said, have a tendency to follow
only that study which is particularly
interesting and unless a large curric-
ulum is offered the school will attract
only a few of them.
Highly praising the FERA program
of adult education, Dr. Fisher said,
'While many are enrolled whose in-
terest is only ephemeral, many others
finish the work and go from the FERA
classes into work of a more specialized
nature conducted by a college or uni-
More Cultural Programs
"The movement is basically sound,
for it attempts to interest the voters
in those modern social, economic, and
governmental problems which are
vital to the very existence of demo-
cratic government."
He announced that more cultural
programs were daily being broadcast,
and urged adults to select these pro-
grams. He said of the press, "The
columns of the, daily paper, especially
the metropolitan press, should be util-
ized by those who wish to keep in-
formed on what is happening in the
contemporary, political, social, and
economic fields. They certainly de-
serve to be classed as a valuable addi-
tion to informal adult education."
Dr. Fisher heralded the work of
state educational offerings of the
extra-curricular nature, such as the
University broadcasting station, and
the lending service of the University
Bank Robbers Get
$10,000 In Hold-Up

DUNKIRK, N. Y., July 2 - (P) -
Six robbers, two of them armed with
machine guns, sprayed the business
section of this city with bullets late
this afternoon before holding up the
Merchants National Bank and mak-
ing off with cash estimated at $10,000
The gang drove up to the front of
the bank in a large sedan. Five of
the bandits leaped from the machine,
but were spied by Police Officer Johr
Brooks. He fired his revolver but was
forced to cover when bullets began
spattering about him.
Six customers and six employees
were forced to lie on the floor while
one of the holdup men shoved a gur
into the face of the cashier and
ordered him to open the vault.

Women Face
Kiling Count
Both Jackson Sisters To
Face Charges Of First
Degree Murder
Third Woman May
Be State Witness
Officials Scoff At Ferris'
Offer To Aid In Finding
Merton Ward Goodrich
DETROIT, July 2 - (A') - Bedrag-
gled women, former dancers in bur-
lesque theaters, waited tearfully in
their cells today for arraignment on1
murder charges for their part in the1
plot which ended in the slaying of
Howard Carter Dickinson.
With the women - Loretta Jack-
son, 27, and her sister, Florence, 24, -
will be arraigned William Lee Ferris,
26, who has confessed that he fired
the shot which killed the New York
attorney in Rouge Park here early
last Thursday morning.
"The three will be charged with
first degree murder," said Prosecutor
Duncan C. McCrea, "but the arraign-
ment may not take place until Fri-
day. There are still a few points to
be cleared up in this case."
McCrea indicated that Jean Miller
23, the third member of the trio of
"entertainers" who lured Dickinson
from his hotel to his tryst with death
in the robbery which yielded the per-
petrators $134, would be used as a
state witness.
All four have confessed, and from
one of their attorneys came informa-
tion today that they might plead
guilty. The maximum penalty for the
crime they have admitted is life im-1

Fred W. Frahm scoffed at Ferris' of-
fer to assist them in finding Merton
Ward Goodrich, trap - drummer
sought-for- the slaying of Lillian Gal- s
lagher here last September.
He has no information on the Gal-
lagher case," Frahm said.
Ferris' whole confession came when
he broke down after 40 hours of ques-
tioning upon being shown a copy of
a newspaper carrying the Miller wom-
an's statement.

Congress Spurns

M.S.C. Loses $20,000
As President Delays
EAST LANSING, July 2 - (R) -1
Faculty members of Michigan State
College figure today that a 48-hour
delay in President Roosevelt's sign-
ing of the land grant college finance
bill cost their institution $20,000.
The bill was signed Monday, several
hours after Michigan State had en-
tered a new fiscal year. Robert J.
Baldwin, director of agricultural ex-
tension work at the college, said
that because of this the benefits to
M.S.C. will not take effect until the
start of its next fiscal year, July 1,1
The bill provides funds for develop-{
ing cooperative agricultural exten-
sion work.

WAgHINGTON, July 2. -(')-
Smashing down for a second time the
President's demands for death to
holding companies, the divided Dem-
ocratic House today passed a bill to
"regulate" utilities and then swiftly
ordered a probe of lobbying both for
and against the measure.
A charge by Rep. Ralph 0. Brew-
ster, (Rep., Me.), that Thomas Cor-
coran, RFC attorney, threatened to
halt the Passamaquoddy project in
Maine unless Brewster supported
President Roosevelt's utilities views
precipitated the special inquiry.
But before that, in an atmosphere
of nervousness and tension, the House
had voted 258 to 147 to substitute its
bill - leaving the future of utility
holding companies to the discretion
of the Securities Commission - for
the administration-Senate bill for
mandatory death by 1942.
Then quickly it rejected 312 to 93
a Republican motion to send the bill
back to committee for still further re-
vision, and passed the measure 323
to 81.

The various stratifications visible
from the little railroad that skirts
the Niagara River through the gorge,
were described by Professor Belknap
in some detail. The brick-colored'
shale at the bottom of the gorge,
the coarse-grained sedimentary sand-
stones immediately above the shale,
and the top layer deposited by the
warm Niagara Sea were all shown in
the slides which were a prominent
feature of the lecture.
Causes Cave-Ins
Pounding ferociously down on the
bottom of the' gorge - 200 feet be-
low - the Falls water is vigorously
churning about huge rocks which un-
dermine the lower strata of the falls
and cause consequent cave-ins of the
top layer composed of Lockport dolo-
mite, Professor Belknap declared. This
explains the recession of the Falls by
from four to six feet each year on the
Canadian side, he stated. The yearly
recession on the American side, over
which only five per cent of the total
flow washes, is negligible, he added.
"The tremendous force with which
the pounding Falls water strikes the
bottom of the gorge is underestimated
by many," the speaker maintained.
"Yet it is easy to see why huge rocks
are battered about like pebbles when
we consider that 1,500,000 gallons of
water plunges down each second. Each
cubic foot of this water weighs about
64 pounds. Naturally the impact is
more than enough to tear away the
lower strata."
Served As Introduction
Professor Belknap's lecture served
as a highly successful practical intr\
duction to the mysteries of the Falls
vicinity for those who plan to take
the Summer Session excursion to the
Falls the weekend of July 12-14. The
excursionists will travel to and from
the falls by train, and while there
they will go about in special buses.
An aeroplane trip over the area is
contemplated for those who wish a
bird's-eye view.
Reservations for this trip, the total
costs of which are expected to be

MOSCOW, July 2. -OP) - Soviet
'Russia's ° controlled press today
charged that Japan's "deliberate pro-
vocations along the Siberian border'
and Germany's asserted preparations
to attack European Russia placed the
Soviet in grave peril of war.
The Communist Party organ Prav-
da, commenting on Russia's vigorous
protest to Tokyo against alleged vio-
lations of Soviet territory by Japanese
and Manchoukuari forces during re-
cent months, said:
"These incidents may be explained
only in the sense that there is a defi-
nite plan by Japanese militarists to
create complications on the frontier."
Baltic Fleet Increasing
Pravda also said that Russia's Bal-
tic fleet was being increased to offset
the concentration of German navalt
units in those waters, asserting Ger-
many was preparing to use the Baltic
as its base 'of operations against Eu-
ropean Russia.
German warships are exploring
the Gulf of Finland and Finnish
fjords seeking naval bases, the news-
paper added, and Germans are nego-
tiating for permits to establish air,
bases in Finland.
"The Germans dream of conquering
Soviet territory up to the Ural moun-
tains," the party organ charged. Con-
sequently the Soviet must increase its
defenses and "the Baltic fleet is
growing in size from year to year."
The fleet now is conducting war
maneuvers, with Kronstadt as its base.
Militant Note Sounded
Another militant anti-Japanese
note was sounded by the organ of
the war department, the Red Star,
which demanded that an end be put
"once and for all" to incursions into
Russia's Far Eastern territory.
A "greater Japan" - at the expense
of the Soviet - is the aim of Japanese
militarists, it added, saying "it would
be very dangerous to mistake our ef-
forts to prevent war for a sign of
weakness." The Red Star issued this
"We suggest that the Japanese mil-
itarists keep this in mind - if anyone
with imperialistic lust attempts to
push back our frontiers, he will re-
ceive a blow that will make him re-
luctant to repeat the adventure for a
long time."

Attack and Counter-Attack
The sudden determination to inves-
tigate lobbying, which Presi'dent
Roosevelt has charged against utility
interests and they in turn against the
White House, came as a surprise.
Rep. Brewster from 1925 to 1929
served two terms as governor of
Maine. Corcoran, who was named by
Brewster as attorney to the RFC in
1932, is regarded as one of the orig-
inal "brain trusters." He is credited
with having had a large part in draft-
ing the securjities exchange . bill and
the securities bill.
Rep. Edward C. Moran, Jr., (Dem.,
'Me.), told the House that Maine Rep-
resentatives had conferred with Cor-
coran about both the Passamaquoddy
project and the utilities bill He said
Brewster was designated by Corcoran
to "handle certain legal aspects of
the 'Quoddy project."
"Since the developments earlier to-
day I have contacted Mr. Corcoran
personally," Moran said, "and there-
fore am stating the facts.
"Several days ago we had a meet-
ing at the RFC, at which Mr. Brewster
was present. I don't believe Mr.
Brewster has seen Mr. Corcoran since
that time.
Quotes Corcoran's Comment
"Mr. Corcoran told me that all he
ever said was that if he (Brewster)
felt as he did about the death sen-
tence for utilities holding companies,
then he could not be trusted to pro-
ceed with the 'Quoddy legal work."
Downtown, Secretary of the Inter-
ior Harold L. Ickes commented that
"doesn't sound like" Corcoran when
asked about Brewster's charges.
"I don't think any threats have
been made," he said.
Ickes said the $10,000,000 public
works allotment for Passamaquoddy
"already has been made and the proj-
ect is going forward."
Simultaneously, Ickes assailed Dr.
Hugh Magill, a former political as-
sociate whose campaign he once man-
aged for United States senator from
Illinois. Ickes said Magill had
stressed "the corrupt influence of util-
ities in political and public affairs,"
"And now he heads the lobby for
the power interests. All I can do is
shed a tear over a man who was right
once and is no longer."

DETROIT, July 2 - (Special) --
The combined bats of Charley
Gehringer and Pete Fox proved to be
too much for two Cleveland pitchers
here today and as a result the De-
troit Tigers are now in second posi-
tion in the American League, three
games behind the pace-setting New
York Yankees. The margin of vic-
tory was 8 to 3.
It was his eleventh victory of the
season for Tommy Bridges, limber
right-handed lobber from the hills of
Tennessee, who will be the starting
pitcher for the American League team
in next Monday's All-Star game at
Gehringer's contributions to the
Tiger triumph included four hits, one
a home run, out of four appearances
at the plate, while Fox produced two
hits and two runs. Detroit outhit
the Indians, 12 to 7.
Cleveland took an early lead in
the first inning when Bridges got off
to a shaky start, walking the first
two men and permitting the third to
single. The Tigers cancelled this run
in the third with one of their own
Five additional runs in the fiftih
and two more in the sixth for th
Detroit cause put the game safel
on ice. Cleveland's two additiona
runs were both the result of circui
wallops by Relief Pitcher Ralph
Winegarner, who relieved Waltei
Stewart, and Bruce Campbell.
The Tigers will be fighting tomor
row to reduce the pennant lead o
the Yankees when they play the sec
ond game in the scheduled three
game series with the Indians.
