BERLIN, Aug. 3.- (A') -The events
of the last few days, coupled with a
historical parallel, caused some ob-
servers to wonder tonight whether
Germany is headed again toward
monarchy - with Adolf Hitler in-
stead of a Hohenzollern on the throne.
HIjtler's assumption of the Chief
Executive's powers and functions
after the death of President Paul von
Hindenburg and his demand for a
plebiscite seemed strikingly in line
with the practices of Napoleon III.
On Nov. 7, 1852, Napoleon was
elevated by the Senate from the Pres-
idency to the throne, and five days
later a plebiscite put the stamp of
popular approval on the action, which
was completed by the coup d'etat on
Dec. 2, 1852.
Plebiscite Not In Doubt
The association of ideas with Na-
poleon put the thoughts of some spec-
uative minds on this question:
Is the presidency of Hitler (even
though he hasn't the title) but the
forerunner of a "Volkskaisertum" or
rule by the people's emperor, who in
this Nazi-dominated state could be no
other than Hitler himself?
That the plebiscite will result in
overwhelming approval of the action
of Hitler in assuming the Presidential
functions in addition to those of
R.e.ch's e ancelo r was taken for
granted throughout the country.
At the same time, von Hindenburg's
death, like many previous tragedies
and crises, was turned into excellent
political capital by the Nazis.
In life the old field marshal was a
check on many Hitlerite plans; in
death he became to the Nazi orators
the greatest Nazi of them all.
No Oath Fr" Storm Troops
The passing of von Hindenburg was
followed quickly by the administra-
tion to the ai'my, navy and the
Schutzstaffel (elite guards) of an,
oath of personal allegiance to Hitler.
It was administered secretly to the
Schutzstaffel yesterday. It was under-
stood that the oath had not yet been1
required of the Storm Troopers.
Just who will be the chief deputy3
of the Chancellor under the new order
of things has not been revealed, and,
will not be until after the plebiscite,
a government spokesman said. He in-
timated that Hitler will name no one
immediately to succeed Franz von
Papen, who has been preparing toa
leave the office of vice chancellor to{
accept appointment as envoy to Aus-
Hitler requested Otto Meissner, sec-z
retary of state in the Reichs-presi-
dent's office under both Ebert andc
von Hindenburg, to continue in the
same post.l
Judische Rundshaw, the first Jew-I
ish newspaper to appear since the
president's death, today printed vont
Hindenburg's name in a black border,I
and gave the text of a message sent
to the president's office by Rabbisl
Baeck and Hirsch on behalf of Ger-
man Jewry, affirming their abiding
loyalty to the memory of the presi-
dent as a man "who always saw the
Fatherland as including all."

BONNEVILLE, Ore., Aug. 3. - ()P')
-President Roosevelt returned to the
continental United States today and
on the banks of the Columbia River
stated "the power we are developing
here is going to be power which for
all time is going to be controlled by
the government."
Mr. Roosevelt referred to govern-
ment power development projects as
"yardsticks" which would show
whether the public is "paying the
proper price for the electricity of our
The chief executive spoke of en-
visioning the time when the Columbia
River would be opened to sea-going
commerce far northward into Wash-
ington state and eastward into Idaho.
"That is a dream, my friends," he
continued, "and not an idle dream.
While we are improving navigation
we are creating power. . . I don't
believe that you can have enough
power for a long time to come."~
Mr. Roosevelt said government
projects which would constitute the
''yardsticks'' for determining power
costs were those on the Colorado River
(Boulder Dam); the Tennessee and1
the Columbia, the latter being thee
project here and the $63,000,000 proj-
ect at Grand Coulee and one on thel
St. Lawrence.
In a brief talk to the thousands
gathered here, -the President inti-
mated that asea lok may be ordered
for the $31,000,000 Bonneville power

ocean-going vessels to "pass up as far
as the Dalles."

Seize Nazi Lawyer
For Part In Trial
Of Austrian Rebels
VIENNA, Aug. 3.-(P) - The ar-
rest of one of the attorneys who de-
fended the two Nazis hanged for par-
ticipation in the putsch which was
fatal to Chancellor Dollfuss was re-
vealed today.
Word that the lawyer, Dr. Erich
Fuehrer, was in custody came shortly
after President Wilhelm Miklas had
commuted to life imprisonment a
sentence of deathagainst a Nazi con-
victed of possessing explosives.
The lawyer's secretary said that the
home and office of Fuehrer were raid-
ed by police yesterday and that after
a thorough search for incriminating
documents he was taken to headquar-
"That was the last I saw of him,"
said the secretary.
The police and press offices when
asked about the arrest resorted to
"Many hundreds have been arrest-
ed in the last few days," said an offi-
cial. "We don't know whether Fuehrer
was among them."
The Nazi receiving clemency was
Edward Hoenisch, 24 years old, the
first man to be given the death sen-
tence for possessing explosives under
a law which Dollfuss put into effect
to end Nazi and other terrorism.
Both the defendant and his young
wife collapsed when the sentence was
' Three Nazis have been hanged since
Dollfuss' death and three others given
long prison terms.
From the hospital where Dr. Anton
Rintelen, former minister to Rome, is
under treatment for a bullet wound,
word came today that he had suf-
fered a stroke of paralysis.
Rintelen was arrested after his
name had- been connected by putsch-
ists to their activities and was wound-
ed in his cell.
The wound was officially said to
have been self-inflicted.
Detroit Whips
Chicago, 14A0
Rowe Is Star
White Sox Get Only One
Hit Off The 'Schoolboy'
And Vic Sorrell
"Schoolboy" Rowe pitched a one-
hit game for seven innings, batted
out a double and two singles, and
drove in two runs yesterday, as the
Detroit Tigers defeated the Chicago
White Sox once again, this time 14
to 0.
It was Jimmy Dykes' infield hit in
the seventh that spoiled the no-hit
game. Gehringer, although getting
his glove on the ball, was unable to
make the throw in time to catch the
Chicago manager at first. The vic-
tory was Rowe's fifteenth of the sea-
son and his eleventh in succession.
The Tigers did not gain on New
York, however, the Yankees defeating
Connie Mack's Athletics, 5 ot 1.
The hits the "Schoolboy" got really
were not needed, for Detroit jumped
away to a four-run lead in the first
inning, Greenberg contributing a
home run with two on bases, added
two more in the second, and picked
up another in the fourth. But the
big inning was the fifth, when three
doubles, by Greenberg, Rowe, and
Goslin, two singles, two walks, and
two errors, both by second-baseman
Boken, were good for six runs.

After the chance for a no-hit, no-
run game was gone, Sorrell relieved
Rowe in the box, Hayworth took up
Manager Cochrane's duties behind the
plate, and Doljack, Clifton, and Schu-
ble took the places of Goslin, Geh-
ringer, and Rogell. Sorrell held Chi-
cago hitless and runless during the
final two innings, while Detroit made
its total 14 with a lone score in the
Gehringer and Owen were the only
Tiger regulars who failed to hit the
offerings of Gaston and Kinzy.

Mayor Walmsley
Depends On Court
A r m e d Soldiers Protect
Adjutant-General From
Process Servers
NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 3.--() --
Senator Huey P. Long today jested
broadly about the tense political war
between his faction and that of Mayor
T. Semmes Walmsley as authorities
moved to cite both the Senator and
Adjt.-Gen. Raymond H. Fleming for
The ground would be that they re-
fused to obey a court order to disband
the National Guard.
The Adjutant-General dodged ser-
vice of the court order for demobili-
zation and instead of disbanding or-
dered his force strengthened. All
day the Adjutant-General sat in
Jackson Barracks surrounded by fully
armed troops who denied admittance
to the process servers. . Counsel for
the Walmsley faction said the court
could cite both Long and Fleming for
contempt and demand their delivery
in court under arrest.
Senator Long made a fast automo-
bile trip to Baton Rouge. There,
chuckling, he announced he had
asked Gov. O. K. Allen, a lieutenant
in his political machine, to disband
the militia and that the Governor
had defied him.
"He told me to go to hell," said the
grinning Senator who has dictated
state policy for five years. "I'm just
trying to be a good citizen," Long
added. "The court told me to come
up and tell the Governor to disband
the militia and I did."
'What did he say?" asked news-
"He told me to go to hell," Long re-
plied with a smile.
"Does that mean that the militia
will remain on duty in New Orleans?"
"I don't know. You will have to
ask the Governor. I don't think he'll
talk to you."
Governor Allen, who had stood si-
lently by during the jocular exchange,
maintained his silence.
English Producer
Warns Hollywood'
NEW YORK, Aug. 3. -() -A
warning to Hollywood to look to its
movie laurels and censorship was
given today when the liner Aquitania
docked with Jeff ery Bernerd, manag-
ing director of Gaumont British
Loaded with ideas and half a dozen
films for American distribution, Ber-
nerd said that Great Britain is ready
to invade Hollywood's home grounds
with pictures meeting all censorship
"We have discovered," he added,
"that though British productions
were great successes here, we did not
seem to make any money. It was a
matter of agencies.
"We are turning out films in Eng-
land, which are clean and do not
require censorship, and we are con-
fident that these very films are what

Professor Is
Given French
Academy Prize
The Prix De L'Academie
Is Awarded To Thieme
For Bibliography
Probably the only American ever
to be so honored, Prof. Hugo P.
Thieme, head of the romance lan-
guages department, recently received
the Prix de l'Academie, awarded by
the French Academy. This prize was
given him for a bibliography* of
French literature covering from 1800
to 1930.
In addition, Professor Thieme's
work has been "crowned" by the
Academy, an honor seldom accorded
to foreigners. He is internationally
known for his bibliography, which,
in its first two editions, has already
become a standard work in its field.
,This is not the first time Professor
Thieme has received recognition in
France. In 1929 he was awarded a
gold medal by the Academy, the most
notable and oldest scholastic organ-
ization in France. This prize is given
annually to the foreigner who has
done most .for French language and
Over a decade ago, in 1923, Pro-
fessor Thieme was made a member
of the Legion of Honor by the French
government. Also in that year the
same award was given to Dean Fred-
erick G. Novy of the Medical School
and to Prof.-Emeritus William H.
Hobbs, of the geology department,
who is now retired.

Ann Arbor Householders
Try To Enlarge Their
League Enrollment
Claim Rates Have
Been Forced Down
Dean's Office Will Drop
All Rooms That Boost
Prices TooHigh
In an effort to stop wholesale
rent-cutting by Ann Arbor house-
holders catering to University stu-
dents, a movement has been organ-
ized by the Ann Arbor Landladies
League to extend its membership
throughout the central eastern part
of the city.
The aim of the league is to effect
an increase in the average rent for
rooms by co-operative action. There
are 726 householders recorded on
the University's approved list, and
the rooming house business has al-
ways been one of the most important
and extensive in Ann Arbor.
Average prices of rooms have
dropped greatly in the past few years,
and although some decline was antici-
pated, officers of the league declare
the decrease has been too excessive,
and that home owners are unable to
meet their taxes, fuel, and other ex-
penses at .the present rental rates.
Low Prices Last Year
Students rented rooms for as low
as $1.50 a week last year and the re-
sllting competition of price-cutting
Shas forced the prices down generally.
The league reported that a reduction
of as much as 50 per ent has been
noted in some cases over a period 'of
Assistant Dean red Wr, wh
is in charge of housing for the Uni-
versity in a statement issued yester-
day said:
"The approved houses submitted
rooms with prices by July 15. Lists
have been made out and completed
with prices as submitted by the house-
holders. This office expects that the
householders are going to rent rooms
at prices they authorized us to put
on the lists.
"Personally I do not believe that
any householder will charge more. If
she does we shall feel justified in hav-
ing that person's name removed from
the approved list. This is not any
emergency action to take care of the
present situation but has always been
our practice.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. -(A)-
The first sky train came through to-

ful" one despite the fact that two days
were consumed in switching off glid-
ers between here and New York.

Armour Leads Canadian Open
Field; Forrest Stauffer 22nd

Hoover Did Not Worry About
1932 Election, Says Secretary,

TORONTO, Aug. 3. -Tommy Ar-
mour, the "Black Scot" now of Chi-
cago, seized the lead in the Canadian
Open today as he aaaed a 73 to his
opening 69 for a 142 total. There were
still a few entries out on the Lake-
view course playing their sec-
ond rounds, but Armour's score looked
good for the leadership at the half-
way point.
Sharing second place three strokes
behind Armour were Wild Bill Mehl-
horn, who duplicated Tommy's 73 for
a 145 total, the same score turned in
by Herman Barron, veteran Port
Chester, N. Y., pro. Both Mehlhorn
and Barron had 72's yesterday.
Leo Diegel, the Philadelphia entry

Jack Littler, of Ottawa. Littler shot
one of the best rounds of the day,
a 69, after a 77 yesterday.
Parks equaled par of 71 today to
earn his place near the top, while
Cooper duplicated his first round 73.
Densmore Shute, the Philadelphian
who occupied third place yesterday
with a 71 slipped to a 77 today for
a 148 total. Al Watrous, of Detroit,
sliced four strokes from his first
round score as he shot a 73 to put
with his opening 77 for 150.
Walter Hagen did not improve
much, getting a 77 today to give him
a total of 156. Gene Sarazen did a
little better by shooting a 73 after an
80 yesterday had placed him far down
the list.

NEW YORK, Aug. 3. - () - Her-
bert Hoover cared not "a continental"
and did not "turn a hand" for his
renomination in 1932, writes one, of
his White House secretaries, Theo-
dore Joslin, in the current issue of
Red Book Magazine.
Styled "Hoover Off The "Record,"
the article opened with Joslin's state-
"The silence of Herbert Hoover was
ofttimes the cause of trouble.
"The people neither understood the
rising forces of destruction nor were
cognizant of the tireless and ceaseless
efforts he was making in their be-
Feared Effects Of Publicity
"There were times so critical that
had Mr. Hoover publicized the ap-
proaching trouble it might have

day, Mr. Hoover declared that "three'
and one-half years would satisfy me"
in the Presidency, adding:
"In the early part of 1932, familiar
with the rumblings in some states
and knowing that the conventions and
primaries were in the offing, I urged
him to send out an observer to study
and report on conditions and inci-
dentally do a little missionary work.
Cared "Not A Continental"
"'I do not give a continental,' he
said, 'whether I am renominated or,
not. I shall not turn a hand to get
another term. The National Conven-
tion can nominate me if it wants to,
or it can nominate someone else. It
can do as it pleases. And let's not
