Johnson Sees Blue Eagle
Board To Succeed Him
Says That He Would
States That Blending Of
Anti - Trust Laws With
Codes Is Essential
WASHINGTON, Aug. 15. - (P)
A Blue Eagle board of directors sup-a
planting one-man control, and a spe-
cial agency for harmonizing code-
rule with antitrust laws, were en-
visioned by Hugh S. Johnson today as
essential for the NRA of tomorrow.
In this picture, his own colorful
bossdom of coded industry would di-
minish, if not vanish altogether.
"If the President wants me to,"
Johnson said, "I might act as chair-
man of this board if it was part time,
but I couldn't give full time."
Dr. Beebe Exceeds
Own Diving Mark;
Reaches 3,028 Ft.
HAMILTON, Bermuda, Aug. 15.-
(A) - Dr. William Beebe set a new
record for deep-sea diving today by
taking his "bathysphere" 3,028 feet
below the surface of the ocean, ex-
ceeding his depth of last Saturday by
Dr. Beebe and Otis Barton, Ameri-
can scientists, used their two-ton
diving contrivance for studies of ma-
rine life at great depths.
After their dive last Saturday took
them down 2,510 feet, Dr. Beebe
planned today's effort with a goal of
exactly half a mile.
Today's dive was Dr. Beebe's last
deep-sea dive of the year, although
he plans later to make some contour
dives at the coastline.

Indian Runners Deliver
Message To Roosevelt
WASHINGTON, Aug. 15.- (if)
- Fourteen sun-browned Indian
braves in bright red and blue loin
cloth today filed into the Blue
Room of the White House and pre-
sented President Roosevelt with
three grains of white corn, invi-
tation to the Four Nations Cele-
bration at old Fort Niagara, start-
ing Sept. 3.
They had run in relays all the
way from Upper New York State.
One of their number, called Ly-
ing Down, was perspiring the most
freely, for he had brought the corn
in its pouch the last lap of the
450-mile relay, in which one In-
dian was always trotting down the
road, the rest riding in a bus.
Following the conference with
the President, the Indians trooped
down to the South Grounds.
"He greeted us very personally,"
said Sitting Beaver, the youngest
of the Indians, 14 years old, and by
far the chattiest of the group.
"He said he'd be out to the cele-
bration, if possible, if business isn't

Richberg is giving particular at-

Senators William E. Borah, Idaho

Johnson said. "I delegated to Rich-

Johnson believes an administrative
institution could be set up to act as
a buffer between NRA and the Fed-
eral Trade Commission without a
new law. He hinted that the NRA
Advisory Council might do the job.
To illustrate the kind of board he
would put over NRA, Johnson cited
the board of directors of an industrial
corporation on which every member,
except possibly the chairman, would
give his full time. There would be a'
single administrative head.
"I am more than ever convinced it
is no longer a one-man job," Johnson
said. "In the minutia of code ad-

WASHINGTON, Aug. 15. -- () -
The Department of Agriculture re-
viewed the drought and its results to-
day and this is what it said:
1. That damage up to Aug. 15 ex-
ceeded expectations and is much
worse than in any previous year on
2. Food supplies for the nation as
a whole are ample.
3. Stocks of bread, grains and other
food products are large.
4. Production of most canning crops
will be about normal.
5. Fruits and vegetables are fairly
abundant outside the drought area.
6. The supply of meat, dairy and
poultry.products will be adequate for
the remainder of this year.
7. Local supplies of certain food
crops will be decidedly short in many
areas, requiring more than usual
shipments from other localities.
8. Damage to feed, forage, and
other pasture will cause sharp reduc-
tions in market supplies of feeds and
other livestock products in 1935, even
if the growing season next year should
The report said the drought had not,
been limited to the United States but
was "widespread throughout the
northern hemisphere, having reduced
grain production materially, and hav-
ing caused serious feed shortage in
central and southeastern Europe.
Damage also has occurred in Russia,
Canada, northern Mexico, the Yang-,

Message Signed In May Is
Only Now Revealed To
BERLIN, Aug. 15. -(P)-Four
days before the plebiscite on Adolf
Hitler's assumption of Presidential
powers, the German people today were
given the political testament of Paul
von Hindenburg, which described Hit-
lerism as "a decisive stride" toward
inner national unity.
For months the document, which
was signed by von Hindenburg on May
11, 1934, but only now was delivered
to Hitler, has been a matter of mys-
There had been speculation as to
whether the aged president had defi-
nitely named Hitler or Vice Chancel-
lor Franz von Papen as his successor
or had perhaps offered possible solu-
tions for Germany's many problems.
Document Still Mystery
The document remained something
of a mystery even after it had been

involving the church, finances and
foreign policy were troubling the

the testament was given out just at

the statement as proof of the assertion
made by Hitler's campaigning lieu-
tenants -- that Hitler is von Hinden-

After praising hitler and his Na-

By some neutral observers this was
taken to mean .that von Hindenburg
hoped for reconciliation of the
troublesome Church situation; per-
haps for restoration of the monarchy,
or again for a greater effort to achieve .
international peace than the Nazis so
far have put forth.

"The last period of my life has
seen the development of the internal 1
unity of the people and their con-
sciousness of their best characteris-

"I was nevertheless aware that the
basic law of the State and the form
of government which the nation gave
itself in the hour of great distress and
internal weakness did not correspond
with the real needs and characteris-
tics of the people.

difficulties confronting Germany dur-

New Yorkers Beat
By 8 To 2 Score
NEW YORK, Aug. 15. --(P) -The
New York Yankees got up off the
floor today, after their double knock
down, and broke the winning streak
of the pennant-mad Detroit Tigers
in thq third game of their fight for
Aierican League baseball supremacy.
Delivering a succession of counter-
blows that blasted Tommy Bridges
off the pitching peak in five innings,
the Yankees rallied behind the effec-
tive pitching of the young Yale grad-
uate, Johnny Broaca, to score an 8-2
decision and serve notice that they
are not to be counted entirely out
of the pennant battle.
The Tigers were stopped after win-
ning 14 consecutive games. They had
equalled the best mark for successive
triumphs ever made by a Detroit team,
the 1909 champions of Hughey Jen-
The Yankees did a thorough and
workmanlike job of halting the Tiger
rush for the time being under circum-
stances that were altogether unin-
spiring by comparison with yesterday.
Where the stands had been jammed
the day before with a howling crowd
of nearly 80,000, barely 12,000 braved
the cloudy weather after a morning's
Bridges quickly contributed to his
own undoing by wildness. He walked
three Yankees in the first two innings
and two of them scored, one on Ben
Chapman's single in the first frame
Defensive Or Offensive Plans
To Determine Kipke's Backfield
By WILLIAM R. REED
In 1933 when Coach Harry Kipke
began to assemble his grid machine
he had to search about for a man to
replace Harry Newman, the country's
outstanding gridder in 1932.
Kipke uncovered that man in Bill
Renner, a slender junior whose pass-
ing abilities had earned him con-
siderable repute as a sophomore, and
Renner was used at quarterback and
constituted one of the greatest po-
tential threats in Big Ten football.
At the same time, Kipke uncov-
ered a running attack, something un-
familiar to Michigan football in re-
cent years, in the person of Herm
Everhardus, who turned out to be the
best ground-gainer in the Big T'n.
This year, however, if Kipke is to
capitalize upon Renner's reputation
as a passer, he must uncover a suit-
able Successor to Everhardus, who
with Stan Fay, the 1933 captain, and
Jack Heston was graduated from last
Further than that, Kipke must
prove Renner's abilities not only as a
passer, but as a field general, for
Renner last season was given little
chance to prove his real abilities in
that department in his "threat" role.
Kipke may have further worries on
that score should it develop that Ren-
ner has failed to recover from an
appendicitis operation which he un-
derwent early last spring. Although
