National Office Fails To
Discover Favoritism In
Work OfMichigan Head
WASHINGTON, July 13. -() -
John H. Fahey, chairman of the
Home Owners Loan corporation, told
newspapermen Thursday that there
have been "no developments of an
extraordinary nature that we have at
this time" in the investigation of the
office of John Hamilton, who recently
resigned as Michigan state manager
of the HOLC.
Fahey said that no more impor-
tance was being attached to the in-
quiry than in that of any other state
manager, and that constant efforts
were being made to check up on all
"Sometimes minor mistakes or un-
important incidents are discovered in
these investigations," the chairman
said. "Where we find evidence of
favoritism in the making of awards
we immediately correct the situation."
Asked if the investigations of the
Detroit office had been completed,
Fahey said "we're getting reports all
the time." He declined to disclose
however, who is conducting the in-
quiry at present, but said "we're get-
ting a better picture of the situa-
Fahey said that in the filling of
vacancies in the state setup of the
HOLC in Michigan he would not con-
sult with Postmaster General Far-
ley, and that "we've made hundreds
of appointments all over the country
where we've simply gone out and got-
ten the best men we could."
Fahey would not comment on the
possibility of conferring on recom-
mendations with Horatio J. Abbott,
Democratic national committeeman
other than to reiterate that "we'll
get the best men we can." Farley
has said he will continue to recognize
Abbott in Michigan patronage affairs.
The chairman said he was not
ready to say what action may come of
the investigation.
Bing Crosby Now
A Proud Papa, And
They're Twin Boys
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 13.--
UP) -Bing Crosby and his wife, the
former Dixie Lee, screen actress, to-
day became the parents of twin boys.
While Bing, singer, actor and prettg
fair amateur golfer, was passing out
the cigars, he was told that he and
his wife had established some sort of
"record" for screen couples. No other
couple in the movies has twins.
The babies were placed in an in-
cubator at Cedars of Lebanon hospital
immediately after birth and were
not weighed.
Dr. Joseph Harris explained this
was merely a precautionary measure
and that the twins, Mrs. Crosby and
even Bing himself were "doing splen-
The Crosbys have another child, a
13-month-old boy, so Bing is looking
forward to future foursomes on the
golf links.

Federal Grand
Jury Inquiry
Not Completed
WASHINGTON, July 13. - (/P) - A
high federal official was on record
today as believing that the federal
grand jury, which recently returned
13 indictments as a result of an in-
vestigation of the Detroit banking col-
lapse last year, is "not quite fin-
Homer Cummings, attorney gen-
eral, told newspapermen Thursday
that additional indictments may be
returned. Cummings' statement was
the aftermath of a conference with
Guy K. Bard, special assistant attor-
ney general who has been conducting
the questioning of witnesses and pres-
entation of evidence.
Cummings said Bard had reported
to him the discovery of "additional
matters which he might decide to
commit to the grand jury" for seek-
ing indictments.
"In other words," the attorney gen-.
eral added, "the grand jury's work is
not quite finished."
All of the 13 bankers or former
bankers recently indicted are under
pleas of not guilty and at liberty
under 2,500 bond each.

Student Tours
Of Observatory
BeginJuly 191
Officials Offer Visitors An1
Opportunity To Inspect.
An opportunity to peek at the man
in the moon through the University
Observatory's 12-inch reflecting tele-
scope will be given to students of the
Summer Session next Thursday, Fri-
day and Saturday nights, July 19, 20,
and 21.
Three free trips through the Ob-
servatory have been arranged through,
the Summer Session offices for each
of these evenings. The trips will begin,
at 8:15, 9:15, and 10:15 p.m. and last,
for 45 minutes.
Students who desire to make the;
visit must obtain tickets from the
offices of the Summer Session. Only1
60 tickets will be given out for each
time so that only 180 may go each
evening and 540 students altogether.
In addition to the 12-inch telescope,
the visitors will be shown the 37.5-
inch reflecting telescope, especially
adapted to photographic and specto-
graphic work, by members of the
astronomy department and graduate'
students who will be on hand to con-
duct the visitors about the building.
The 45-minute period applies to
the telescope room only. Those who
care to may stay and examine the
other instruments as long as they
choose. In case of bad weather the
trips will be run as scheduled with the
exception that the inspection of the
moon through the 12-inch telescope
will be omitted.
These trips through the University
Observatory have been a feature of
the program every summer. No stu-
dent will be admitted who has not
procured a ticket beforehand from
the Summer Session office.
Greenland Has
White Rainbow,
Belknap States
No t e d Glacier Authority
Says Unique Conditions
Produce Phenomenon
Greenland has more than once
proved itself an unusual and mys-
terious country but one of the most
unique characteristics of it was de-
scribed by Prof. Ralph L. Belknap
of the geology department, noted
authority on glaciology, who told
about the white rainbows that oc-
cur there frequently.
The cause of these rainbows is
really a dense white fog, which is in
itself unusual due to the fact that
the temperature is usually below the
freezing point and often below zero
when the rainbows occur. The sun
is unable to penetrate so dense a fog,
hence the fact that they are color-
less rather than of many hues as are
the ones that are generally witnessed.
If the air is quiet, the occurance
of the rainbows is quite a natural
phenomenon, sometimes noticeable
several nights in a row. The reason
for the presence of moisture in the
air which is not frozen is that it will
not freeze unless there are some nu-
clei about which the moisture can
attach itself to.
The fog which causes these rain-
bows is about the same as that which
we have here, with the exception that
it is much whiter and a great deal
more dense than any which appear

in this section.
Another fact which might be of in-
terest to persons who are suffering
from the torpid days which have been

Shortage Of Food
May HampIlfer IByn
Exploration' Airty
SAN PEDRO, Calif., July 13.-(/1)
- A serious shortage of food is likely
to face Admiral Richard E. Byrd's
exploration party in Little America
before his ships call there to bring
him home in late December, Capt.
William F. Verleger, master of Byrd's
supply ship, Jacob Ruppert, said to-
day on his arrival from New Zealand.
A large quantity of supplies landed
from the Jacob Ruppert last February
was lost in several feet of snow, and
the veteran skipper is fearful there
will not be sufficient food left for the
Byrd party to carry on until the sup-
ply ships again visit Little America
in midwinter.
The master also expressed concern
for the personal safety of Admiral
Byrd, 'now isolated in an advanced
weather base 150 miles from the main
base in Antarctica.
Students Give Luncheon
For Faculty Of Library
A luncheon was held yesterday noon
in the Russian Tea Room of the
League for the membes of the Library
Science Department. This is the first
social function of this group, and
was proposed by the students to give
them a chance to meet the faculty
infornally and to discuss with them
some of the problems that arise in
connection with their work.
The next meeting of the group, it
was announced by Miss Margaret
Mann, will be held Sunday night, July
29, at which Clyde R. Taylor and Ar-
chibald Dunningham will tell about
the libraries of New Zealand.
Federal Curb
On Films Seens
As Possible
WASHINGTON, July 13.-- UP) -
A movement to clamp a strict Fed-
eral curb on the movies showed signs
of reviving today.
Beaten in the last Congress, ad-
vocates of so-called "censorship" bills
offered by Representative Patman
(Dem., Tex.) are taking something of
a "I told you so" attitude. The 73rd
Congress had hardly adjourned before
the church campaign to improve the
movies' morals began.
Proponents of regulatory legislation
now are more hopeful that a bill can
be put through next session to stop
some of the practices they complain
Patman insisted he was not asking
movie "censorship." He wanted first
to stop "block booking," a system
under which a theatre has to take a
group of miscellaneous pictures in
order to show one orumore popular

many for some time. He created the
School of Religion at Boston Univer-
sity and for seven years following was
head of the department of religious
education at Northwestern.
He is the author of a recent book,
"Christ of the Classroom," which is
used widely in the study of religious
education. At present he is guest pas-
tor at the local First Presbyterian
The morning session will be cli-
maxed with a discussion of the two
previous addresses, led by Dr. S. A.
Courtis of the education school.
Professor Courtis, nationally prom-
inent in the field of education and the
author of many books, has announced
that he will conduct a group study
to ascertain the attitude of those
present on the subject.
For this purpose he has prepared
questionnaires which will be distri-
buted at the time.
Reservations for 85 have been made
for the luncheon session which will
convene at 12:15 p.m. in the dining
room of the League, and twice that
number are expected to be on hand
for the address by Dr., Frederick B.
Fisher on the subject "Christian Uni-
ty Through Faith and Worship."
Dean J. B. Edmonson, Dean of the
School of Education, will be chair-
man of the noon meeting.
The day's events will be climaxed at,

the two o'clock afternoon session. Dr.
Albert Hyma, Professor of History,
will be chairman of this meeting.
William Doty, instructor in organ
music, will deliver the opening ad-
dress of the session on "The Function
of Music in Worship."
Mrs. Frederick B. Fisher will fol-
low immediately with a short speech
on -The Place of Worship in the
Curriculum of Religious Education."
A discussion, led by Rev. Henry
Lewis, Rector of St. Andrews Epis-
copal Church, will conclude the first
day's session.
In the past Dr. Blakeman has been
connected with other religious con-
ferences here, but none have been
conducted on quite so large a scale.
An explanation in the program, re-
cently released, explains that: "This
conference is designed to stimulate
interest in and discussion of prob-
lems having to do with individual and
corporate worship. The conference
should be of special interest to all
those assuming responsibility for de-
votional leadership. So that there
may be a maximum amount of in-
formal discussion, the program is ar-
ranged in such a way as to stimulate
an exchange of views.
Those directly, in charge -of the
conference, the members of the com-
mittee on religious education of the
session, are H. 0. Whitemore, chair-
man, J. R. Sharman, and W. H. Sodt.

Navy To Build 19 New Ships
In 1936 Construction Program

(Copyright, 1934, by the Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 13. - Looking
toward treaty strength by 1942 the
navy had adopted a plan calling for
5,500 more enlisted men and the lay-
ing down of 19 new ships in the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1936.
This "operating force" plan would
give the navy 88,000 men as compared
with 82,500 during the present year.
The new ships would include 12 de-
stroyers of 1,500 tons each. Two heavy
destroyers and five submarines.
A high navy official said the build-
ing program is being pointed toward
a future plan of laying down around
15 ships-regularly each year. This
number will take care of obsolescence

and provide necessary replacements
even of battleships. The cost is esti-
mated at around $95,000,000 a year.
Gradually, this goal is being ap-
proached. Thirty-two ships were
started the past fiscal year and 24
will be laid down this year.
The program depends, of course,
on what money Congress provides.
Budget estimates of the cost of the
1936 program have not been pre-
Officials figure, though that a sub-
marine would cost at least $3,600,000,
a heavy destroyer, $3,775,000 and a
light destroyer $3,400,000. On this
basis the 19 new fighting craft would
cost about $65,000,000.
Compared with the present man
power, which is said to be 81 per
cent of "complement," an enlisted
personnel of 88,000 would raise the
strength to a little more than 80
per cent,
The plan is to keep battleships at,
85 per cent, along with aircraft car-
riers, cruisers, minelayers, and fleet
Among the actual fighting vessels,
the only numerical increase in ships
designed for operation in 1936, is the
addition of one heavy cruiser to the
15 covered by the 1935 operating force
plan. In destroyers and submarines a
decrease is expected, with old ships
retired in larger numbers than new
ones completed.
