Tell Story Of How
Hitler Was Nearly
Killed In Revolt:

Fears Of New Uprising
Keep Nazi Troops On
Their Guard
Give Schmitt Wide
Commercial Powers
Believe That He Might
Relax Jewish Policy To
Help Trade
BERLIN, July 6. -- (?) -Fears of
a new uprising against Adolf Hitler
kept Nazi forces on the alert tonight,
as the first week after the summary
killing of "traitorous" subleaders came
to an end.
That Hitler himself barely escaped
death in his "purge" of the revolting
storm troop chieftains was related at
Breslau today on good authority.
Edmund Heines, Breslau police
chief and Storm Troop leader, an
Am rican citizen there was told, ran
up o Hitler with a revolver when the
Chancellor raided Ernst Roehm'sa
house at Munich.
One of Hitler's aides shot Heines
down saving the Chancellor's life, said
the American, who heard the account
from a former friend of Heines whom
he regarded as absolutely reliable.
While keeping close watch for new
outbreaks, the government was busy
with its economic problems.
Realizing the acuteness of the eco-
nomic situation, the authorities took
steps to tighten their hold on indus-
try. There was talk of wartime reg-
ulations, including the enforced use
of many home-produced substitutes
for maiterials heretofore imported.
May Relax Anti-Jewish Policies
Kurt Schmitt, minister of eco-
omlcs, was given sweeping powers to
carry out the commercial policies,
an act interpreted as a move in the
direction of the conservative elements.
Schmitt has been given unlimited
authority to impose fines on per-
sons and institutions that refuse to
obey his orders. He was even ex-
pected by some observers to bring
about a relaxation of the anti-Jew-
ish policies as a means of improving
foreign trade..
Nazi spokesmen told of the renewed,
vigilance against revolt after hear-,
ing rumors that friends of the ex-,
ecuted Roehm, supreme Storm Troop;
commander, and other victims of Hit-
ler's firing squads were considering a
new attempt to overthrow the present'
Storm Troopers in civilian clothes)
were said to have met in Berlin sec-..
retly today and to have shouted "re-
This and other reported develop-
ments caused the guard in Berlin
to be strengthened.
The Nazi Press Department said
that the list of those executed has
been withheld to prevent excitement
among their friends.
A full communique from Hitler,,
telling all about the mutiny, will be
forthcoming within a few days, the
Press Department reported;
Force To Be Reduced
Victor Dutze, who succeeded Roehm
as head of the Storm Troopers, today
gave the first official confirmation
that the force of 2,000,000 will be
reduced after the July vacation.
Reorganization, he wrote in Der
Angriff, Propaganda Minister Goeb-
bels' newspaper, might involve a re-
duction in number.
Lutze expressed the view that the
former leaders had opened the ranks]
to Communists and other anti-Nazis
and declared that hereafter only true
Nazis can belong to the organization.]
Assurances that*the old enmity be-
tween the Storm Troopers and the
Stahlhelm (veterans' organization)
was ended was given by Franz Seldte,
cabinet minister and head of the

Police Arrest 27 To
Silence1 Sax Player
BALTIMORE, July 6. -(P) -In a
mass raid, reminiscent of prohibition
days, police swooped down on a night
'club here early this morning and ar-
rested 27 persons -to silence the sax-
ophone player.'
Neighbors who, through boiling hot
nights, had tossed and tumbled and
stood the tooting of the saxophone,
the main instrument in a three-piece
band, complained to police.
So early today police backed a
patrol wagon up and hauled away
every person in sight. Magistrate Jo-
seph O'Donnell heard complaints
against the tooting.
He sympathized, and suggested that
if a saxophone tooted all night in
his neighborhood he would feel jus-
tified in tossing a bomb.
By the way, which one is the saxo-
phone player?" asked the magistrate.
"He got away," Sergt. Joseph Say
admitted sadly.
MacNider Hits
Democrats At
G.O.P. Meeting
Calls For United Front Of
Republican P a r ty As
Country's Need
(Daily Staff Correspondent)
JACKSON, July 6. - Republicans
gathered for the 80th anniversary of
the party's founding here were told
that a "vigorous fighting unified Re-
publican party" was the crying need
of the United States government in
its present problems by Col. Hanford
MacNider, former American Legion
commander and former minister to
Canada, who addressed the two-day
pieeting "under the oaks" in the his-
toric spot where the party was born.
Approximately 50,000 party stal-
warts heard Col. MacNider lash Dem-
ocratic "ineptitude," planned econ-
omy, government professorial advis-
ers, and "undermining" of the Con-
Up To Party
"There can be no doubt," he said,
"that the Constitution is being under-
mined today. It is up to the Repub-
lican party now and every moment
from this moment on to see that that
Constitution is not overcome.",
Earlier in the day, party members
attended various meetings, most im-
portant of which was that of the
state central committee, where former
Governor Fred W. Green of Ionia
was the chief speaker.
Evening speakers, in addition to
Col. MacNider, included Paul W.
Voorhies, former attorney general of
the State. ,
Tomorrow the meeting will take on
an added significance with the pres-
ence of two prominent party person-
ages, Henry P. Fletcher, newly elect-
ed chairman of the Republican na-
tional committee, and Sen. Arthur H.
Vandenberg of Grand Rapids. These
two men will be the principal speak-
ers of the day.
Also to be heard tomorrow are Rep.
Clarence J. McLeod of Detroit and
Frank D. Fitzgerald, secretary of
state, both of whom have been named
for the Republican gubernatorial
nomination. In addition, two former
Michigan governors will speak, Wilber
M. Brucker and Mr. Green.

2-1 Vote, While State
Gives It Only 3-2 Edge
Roosevelt Stronger
Than When Elected
Seventeen Schools Report
Favorable Results When
Digest Poll Closes
University of Michigan students in-
dicated their approval of the policies
and acts of President Franklin D.
Roosevelt by a margin of two to one,
as shown in the final returns of the
special campus poll conducted by the
Literary Digest in co-operation with
The Daily.
The completed tabulations reveal
that 1,660 students support the New
Deal, while only 812 registered dis-
The Roosevelt Administration was
also given a favorable margin in the
nation-wide poll conducted at the
same time by the Literary Digest
when,1,083,752 people cast their bal-
lots im support of the president and
only 688,411 opposed him, giving the
New Deal a three to two majority.
Vermont Opposed
Michigan as a state signified its ap-
proval with a vote of 34,262 to 22,472
for the president. Vermont was the
only one of the 48 states to oppose the
New Deal.
A comparison of the ratio of the
final returns in favor of Roosevelt's
acts and policies with the popular-
vote ratio he received officially in 1932,
indicates that he has increased his
strength 3.83 per cent sinc his elec-
An analysis also shows that the
Presidentahas incurredhnet lossesof
support among the voters in this New
Deal poll in 20 states and net gains in
the, other 28 states since 1928. Mich-
igan is included in th latter class
with Roosevelt receiving an 11.27 per-
centage of gain.
Student Feeling General
The vote cast by students here was
r'epresentative of the feeling on other
campuses, tabulations show. Sixteen
thousand, two hundred and ninety-
three undergraduates, or 64.35 per
cent on 17 college campuses balloted
in favor of the Administration, while
9,025 voted against it.
Not one of the universities returned
an unfavorable report on the New
Deal with students at Harvard, Yale,
Cornell, Vassar, University of Wash-
ington, Dartmouth, Brown, Univer-
sity of Virginia, University of Wis-
consin, University of Colorado, Uni-
versity of Minnesota, Wellesley, Stan-1

Left For Trip
To Cranhrook
Eight A.M. Is Deadline For
Those Wishing To Make
Third Excursion
With reservations for 50 students
already made, Prof. Carl J. Coe, di-
rector of Summer Session excursions,
announced that two buses had been
chartered for the trip to the Cran-
brook Schools in Bloomfield Hills to-
day. This makes it possible for a
considerable group to make arrange-
ments for the trip as late as 8 a.m.
today, if they still wish to join the
party. The buses will leave from in
front of Angell Hall at that time this
morning, and will return to Ann Ar-
bor late this afternoon.
The group will first visit Cran-
brook School, the main unit of the
six which make up the Cranbrook
Foundation. There they will be met
by Dr. Charles J. Keppel, assistant
headmaster of Cranbrook, who will
conduct the party while it is in
Bloomfield Hills. Cranbrook School,
considered one of the leading private
schools in the Middle West, is na-
tionally known not only for its aca-
demic ranking, but for its remarka-
ble architecture, which has received
several national prizes.
Kingswood School, the girl's school
of the Cranbrook Foundation, will
also be visited by the group, as will

In one of the worst wind and rain
storms Ann Arbor has had in years
one man was injured and hundreds of
trees and branches were toppled to
the ground.
Reuben Sodt, of Manchester, was
brought in to St. Joseph's Mercy Hos-
pital yesterday afternoon after a tree
had fallen on him and fractured his
leg. According to hospital authori-
ties his condition is serious.
Worst In Years
"The worst storm we've had in
years," said Herbert . Sylvester, dis-
trict agent for the Detroit Edison
company. Mr. Sylvester reported that
the path of the storm covered from
Howell to Toledo with lines down
throughout the area where trees had
fallen across them.
Many treesonmthe campus were
felled or injured by the storm, Irving
W. Truettner, inspector in the Build-
ings and Grounds department of the
University, said last night. Three
trucks and 15 department employees
were working overtime last night
clearing up the wreckage. The most
damage done on the campus was by
a large tree blown down near East
Observatory records show that at
about 3:30 p.m. the temperature sud-
denly fell 22 degrees, from 92 to 70,
and the wind, which had been blowing
at 15 miles per hour, rose quickly to
48 miles per hour followed by .31
inches of rainfall.-
, 200 Trees Down'
Eli A. Gallup, Superintendent of
Parks and City Forester, reported last
night that at least 200 trees were
seriously injured and many more had
limbs blown off them. Aside from
several automobiles damaged by fall-
ing trees and a porch on a residence
damaged in the same way, property
damage was slight. Two crews from
the Park Department and two more
from the Board of Public Works were
at work last night and by nightfall it
was reported that all streets were
open and most of the sidewalks were
cleared. Mr. Gallup requests that any
persons wishing to report trouble call

In Detroit Mrs. Fanny Clemens,
88, and Frank Peak, 8, were killed
when they were struck by falling
trees. Near Jackson Louis Conners, 60,
a farmer, was electrocuted when he
attempted to disentangle his automo-
bile from a high tension wire blown
down with a tree. At Waldron, in
Hillsdale County, Robert Azmoine
died similarly attempting to move a
wire which had fallen -outside a tav-
ern. Mrs. Lavinia Frederick, 47, of

Jackson, was drowned in Gillett's
Lake, four miles east of that city,
when waves swamped the boat in
which she and her husband, D. H.
Frederick, were fishing.
Four persons narrowly escaped
drowning in the St. Clair River dur-
ing the storm when waves upset their
small boat. All were rescued.
From all over the southern part of
the state came reports of broken
power and telephone lines, unroofed
barns and houses, leveled trees and
wrecked signboards. The towns of
Chelsea and Manchester were cut off
from electric power for a time and
communications with other towns
were temporarily broken.

WIMBLEDON, Eng., July 6. - (A)-
Fred Perry, England's "Artisan" ten-
nis player, rose to the greatest heights
of his career today to present England
with its own singles championship for
the first time in 25 years. A. W. Gore
was the last Englishman to win, in
Where John Bull's best "public
school boys" had proved inadequate
for a quarter of a century to cope
with the invaders, Perry stepped in
and crushed Jack Crawford, the
world's No. 1 player from the end of
the empire, Australia, 6-3, 6-0, 7-5.
Perry, the boy who only a few years
ago had to ask his employer's per-
mission to get off work to play in
park tournaments, proved himself the
undoubted master of the present crop
of amateurs, and possibly entitled to
rank with the greatest of all time.
Seldom has a player of Crawford's
ability absorbed such a thorough
beating as Perry applied.
Third Victory In Year
What's more, he was doing it for
.the third time in a year. Perry went
to Australia to take Crawford's home
title away on his own grounds, and
he whipped Crawford for the Ameri-
can singles championship last Sep-
tember. But for an injured ankle,
which probably cost him a quarter
final match against Gregario de Ste-
fani, in the French championships, he
might have achieved the tennis equiv-
alent of Bobby Jones' golfing grand
slam of 1930.
The only thing lacking to make
Perry's triumuh comulete was the fact

Licensing System
May Be Instituted
Unemployment Insurance
Is Favored By Leaders,
Report Says
(Copyright, 1934, by the Associated Press)
NEW YORK, July 6. -(P) -The
Roosevelt administration, it was re-
ported tonight by an authoritative
source, is working on a plan to sup-
plant the NRA with a strictly regu-
lated self-government for industry.
Hugh S. Johnson, the recovery ad-
ministrator, indicated such steps sev-
eral weeks ago in a preliminary set-
up given President Roosevelt for
Revisions were suggested. They are
being made now for final considera-
tion and approval by the President.
The Associated Press could obtain
no direct official government confir-
mation tonight, but the source of the
information is unusually close to the
administration. This authority said
the plan is almost certain to be ef-
Codes Would Be Permanent
As outlined to the Associated Press,
the program provides for continuance
of codes as a permanent feature of
industrial life.
Under these codes, pursuant to
rules of conduct laid down by ths
Federal government and supervised
closely, industry would be given the
chance, to .goern itself..,
Johnson, it was said, has paid par-
ticular attention to the correction of
the monopolistic tendencies charged
up to the NRA.
"The Federal government," said the
Associated Press informant, "would
watch closely to prevent any rise in
prices it deemed unjustified. If the
Sherman Anti-Trust Act continues
under suspension, its provisions would
probably be guarded by a licensing
system to prevent such rises."
Unemployment Insurance Vital
For some months, the view has been
held by some New Yorkers, prominent
in industry and finance and friendly
in the main to the aims of the Roose-
velt administration, that the Federal
government should unshoulder the
pack of governing industry under the
Some of these men also have felt
that unemployment insurance, one of
the points in the President's program
of social reform for the next Con-
gress, should be a part of any self-
governing set-up for industry.
They look on such insurance as a
duty on industry.
It was not learned, however,
whether such a step was contemplated
in the supplanting of the NRA.
Johnson has been in New York for
several days,' consulting with several
persons on the change.
See Influence Of Swope
It was emphasized' that he has
taken the lead in the reformation.
Persons close to.the recovery admin-
istrator said he has drawn on his own
experiences in industry for some
phases of the proposed supplanting
and also has used ideas advanced in
the past by others.
This was taken to mean that John-
son has been in consultation with
Gerard Swope, president of the Gen-
eral Electric Company, who three
years ago advanced the program for
stabilization of industry through sta-
bilizing employment and co-ordinat-
ing production, all under self-govern-
It' was held certain that any final
plans, under which the government
would turn over to.industry the right
to rule itself, would contain some form
of a guarantee continuing the NRA
collective bargaining powers.
