'Banks Pledge
Aid In Housing,
Plan By Loans
Government's Campaign
For Home Repairing To
WASHINGTON, Aug. 16. - (P) -
The government's campaign to stimu-
late home repairing strode forward
today with the pledges of 1,131 banks
throughout the country to co-operate
by making loans for such improve-
The banks which the Federal Hous-
ing Administration announced had
signed contracts to make insured
"character loans" of from $100 to
$2,000 for property repairs have ag-
gregate financial resqurces of $8,131,-
980,000. Situated in 46 states and the
District of Columbia, they serve a
population of 87,347,304.
The new housing setup expects
many more financial institutions to
join in the movement, and hopes
home owners will take advantage ofI
the o-nortunity. It seeks to stimulatel
business and employment.
Michael J. McDonough, president
of the building trades department of
the American Federation of Labor,'
told the 1,500,000 membes of his
craft that if the housing program
goes "over the top," it will mean "rea-
sonably steady employment for years
to come.". Eighty per cent of the
building workers now have no jobs, he,
said in a statement.
McDonough echoed optimism ex-
pressed in a radio address by James
A.- Moffett, the housing administra-
tor, who also warned profiteers they
would be exposed if they sought to
Prey on the program.-
Arizona and Idaho were the only
states not included on the initial list'
of co-operating banks. New York
topped the column with more than
200 banks that have signed contracts
-22 of them in New York City alone.
The banks listed included these
in Michigan: National Bank of Ad-
rian, Algonac Savings Bank, Allegan
State Savings bank, Deerfield Na-
tional bank, National Bank of De-
troit, Detroit Savings bank, Old Kent
Bank of Grand Rapids, Holland City

unknown to man, was one of the curi-

depth of 3,028 feet, more than half noro
a mile under the surface. The descent resum

Activities at the League during the

for. the University was in charge of
Miss Ethel McCormick, while the
League activities were headed by
Maxine Maynard as president, as-
sisted by Jane Fletcher, Jean Seeley,
Charlotte Whitman, Margaret Kim-
ball, and Mary Morrison.
Some social event took place every'
night during the first seven weeks,1
except Saturday, in addition to the
Repertory Plays which ran through
Wednesdays to Saturdays. Mondayl
nights were devoted to bridge les-
sons. These lessons had an enroll-
ment of 75 people and were con-
ducted by Mrs. John Mathes. She
was also in charge of the bridge tour-
naments on Tuesday nights .

Railroads To Ask
For Higher Rates
WASHINGTON, Aug. 15. -(P -
Basing their plea on wage increases
and the increasing cost of materials,
the railroads soon will ask for an in-
crease in freight rates . on many
classes of commodities. A -petition is
to be presented to the interstate com-
merce commission.
Farm products, the subject of spe-
cial treatment for several years prob-
ably will not be affected by/the peti-
Railroad attorneys declined today
to discuss the plea although acknowl-
edging it soon will be filed.
In 1931, although denied a general
increase, the railroads were permitted
to place surcharges on certain com-
modities. These were in effect until
last September.
The new appeal will include a long
line of commodities. It may follow in
the main the list on which surcharges
were allowed two years ago. This list
includes bituminous and anthracite
coal, coke, iron ore, coppe' and con-
centrates except a few exceptions for
local situations, lead ore and concen-
trates, 'zinc ore and concentrates,
sand and gravel, stone, forest prod-
ucts of all kinds, pig iron, scrap
iron, phosphate rock, crude petro-
leum, cottonseed meal' and cake, cit-
rus fruits, vegetables, rosin, turpen-
tine, gasoline and, other fuel oils,

Approximately 80 people signed up
for the second series which was
taught together.
Miss Fletcher was in charge of the
four Sunday Night suppers which,
were sponsored by the University.
These suppers replaced the teas given
in former summers and were given
for the purpose of acquainting the
students of different divisions of the
University with their faculty.
The first supper was given for the
division of hygiene and public health.
Approximately 85 reservations were
made for this affair. Seventy stu-
dents and faculty members attended
the School of Music supper; 35 were
present at the supper given for the
division of library science; and 75
people attended the final all-campus
The Friday night dance was the
most successful social event of the
week. An average of 450 people a
week attended during the Summer
Session. There were 35 hostesses who
contributed to the success of these
dances and 15 hosts. -

rated during the last three dances of

popular have the dances become that

given on both Friday and Saturday
nights next summer.
A dinner .dance was given Aug. 6
for the officials who helped during
the season. Seventy-two attended
this function. Al Cowan played for
the dancing.
Besides the regular program spon-
sored by the League there were nu-
merous dinner parties given by Ann;

Head Tax Gentlemen
Have 4 Million To Go
LANSING, Aug. 16.- (P) - The old
age pension bureau today attacked
the problem of collecting -about $4,-

four and one-half months delinquent,
according to Ed. L. Williams, admin-
istrator of the law and director of the
pension office.
William ordered all county clerks
to prepare a list of delinquents, point-
ing out "that the law is now in full
operation, it has been upheld by the
atton-iey general's office and we are
prepared to enforce the statute."
There has been some, contention
in the state from the first that the
law does not apply to collection of
head taxes for last year, and the pen-
sion bureau has consequently collect-
ed -only $350,000 to date. The esti-
mated collections annually at $2 per
person ,overthe age of 21 is more
than $4,000,000.
Von Papen Greeted
In BriefCeremony
VIENNA, Aug. 16.- (R) - In a per-
functory and colorless ceremony last-
ing only four minutes, Franz von
Papen, special envoy of Germany, to-
day presented his credentials to Pres-
ident Miklas in the presence of Chan-
cellor Kurt Schuschnigg and the staff
,of the German legation.
It was apparent that the Austrian
government wished to minimize the
importance of Hitler's representative
in making the ceremony as unpre-
tentious as possible.
The police kept the public away
from the foreign office, thus fore-
stalling any possible demonstration.
Von Papen and the German legation
staff were conveyed to the foreign of-
fice in several Austrian government
automobiles flying the Austrian flag,
but they passed through the streets
of the capital almost unnoticed.
