Constitution For
Philippines Will
Be Drafted Soon

National Guardsmen Protect North Dakota Capitol

Islands Plan Convention
Starting July 30; Want
Speedy Independence
Object To Interim'
Many Steps Necessary To
Bring Independence For
Island Peoples
WASHINGTON, July 20.--(A)-
The Philippine Islands will take their
first major step toward complete in-
dependence when a constitutional
convention meets in Manila on July
30. .
At that time the Filipinos will
shift into high gear the machinery
designed to make their nation an in-
dependent republic by about July 4,
With extraordinary speed the ma-
chinery can bring into existence by
next January 1 the commonwealth or
interim government which, meeting
all requirements of the McDuffie-
Tydings independence act, will make
way for the Philippine republic on
July 4, 10 years hence.
This 10-year interim, strenuously
objected to by Filipino leaders as too
long, was devised to give the islands
experience in running their own gov-
ernment, for readjustment of trade
relations and all the complicated
steps necessary for the American gov-
ernment to withdraw after nearly a
half century of Philippine occupa-

Many Farmers
Decline FERA
Plan To Assist
Ties Bind The Agricultural
Sections To The Drouth
Scorched Lands
WASHINGTON, July 20. -(A') -
The ties that bind farmers to drouth
scorched land of the western plains
are proving too strong for the Fed-
eral Emergency Relief Administra-
tion to break.
Though suffering terrific hardship,
all except a comparative few are
declining FERA's offer of assistance
in moving to land that is better-
Thisbecame known today when
Lawrence Westbrook, assistant ad-
ministrator in charge of drouth re-
lief, let it be known that the pop-
ulation of the drouth areas is plan-
ning to stick it out.
Years of insufficient moisture
capped by this year's disaster have
seared crops and pastures and in some
places turned topsoil into great dry
dunes that have buried buildings,
ruining the work of generations.
Unlike the tenant farmer of the
south, thousands of whom are being
assisted to independence in the rural
rehabilitation program, these people
own their.own homes. They are de-
scendants of the pioneers who braved!
the rigors of the west to settle it.
They cling to the ancestral land.
Much land has been declared by
agricultural experts to be fit only for
grazing. In the f ce of the refusal
to move, Westbrook said, the problem
now has resolved itself largely into
one of helping the people where they
are instead of transplanting them.
Either way, he said, the cost would be
about the same.
Workers Get Demands,
And Then Are Stumped
MANORVILLE, Pa., July 20. - (R)
- The 50 striking workers of the
National Mirror Specialty Co. are in
a quandary.
A committee marched into the of-
fice of Leon H. Samuels, owner, and
demanded better wages and hours.
The boss shook his head, thought
a while and said:
"Tell you what I'll do. I'll turn the
plant over to you. You do the man-
aging, fix the hours of work, take
your wages out of the profits and
pay me a salary."
The men said they didn't have suf-
ficient managerial experience.
The committee thought some more
and then decided:
"We'll come back later."
They hied to Pittsburg to consult
Ernest C. Dunbar, mediator of the
Regional Labor Board, and now he's
trying to settle it.

There is one room among those to
be found in the cluster of University
buildings over the door of which
might be inscribed in letters of gold,
"Silence Is Golden." It is the sound-
proof room on the fourth floor of

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., July 20. -(P) -

The boys were revived by their

They had been washing walls and
had lighted a gas heater to warm
water for a shower-bath. The room
was not properly ventilated, however,
and the gas light quickly used up so
much oxygen that all three col-

This haven of silence for those
with distraught nerves is completely
surrounded and insulated from the
rest of the building by an eight inch
layer of fine sand and sawdust di-
vided into three smaller layers by
roofing felt. There are, in addition,
two separate air spaces lined with felt
between the sand layer and the walls
of the room itself.
The floor, according to Professor
Shepard, presented special difficulties
in sound deadening which were met
by adding, in addition to the sand-
sawdust combination, a layer of cork
and two of soft wood all separated
one from another by air spaces.
To support all this weight it was
necessary to strengthen the founda-

the room all heavily lined with hair

with a thick carpet. A heavy lead
pipe which goes through and is sound
insulated from the walls is used to
lead in wires and tubing necessary
for conducting experiments.
So completely sound-proof is the
room that a person inside cannot
hear a gun shot outside and only
with difficulty can detect the sound
of someone beating on the walls.

Pastor's Study Is'Scene Of
Wedding Ceremony Of
Pearl Liu,_R. B. Chen
Two Chinese graduate students
found the romance on the University
campus this year which culminated
in their marriage in the pastor's study
of First Methodist Church at 10:00
o'clock yesterday morning. The stu-
dents were Miss Pearl Liu of Sienyu,
Fukien, China, and Ren-Bing Chen
of Waukang. in central China.
The vows were exchanged before
Dr. Frederick B. Fisher. The bride is
the daughter of Mrs. F. T. Liu of
Sienyu and the late Mr. Liu, who was
a missionary of the Methodist church,
and Mr. Chen is the son of Rev, and
Mrs. Chen of Changsha.
Mrs. Bradley Moore Davis, a guest
at the wedding, arranged a colorful
setting of garden flowers about the
study, making a lovely background.-
Miss Liu, whose first name is trans-
lated in English as Pearl, was charm-
ing in a severely simple informal gown
of white Chinese silk made in the tra-
ditional style with straight lines, short
sleeves and high collar, buttoned
closely at the throat. The collar and
sleeves were edged with green silk,
which with tiny green buttons and
loops to fasten the collar formed
the only trimming. -With this en-
semble she wore white slippers. The
bride wore no hat or gloves and in
keeping with the quiet informality of
the occasion she carried no flowers.
For the reception she wore a robe
fashioned on similar lines, of. rose
silk with silver brocade design.
Something unusual in the weddings
of Chinese students on the campus
was the presence of one of the rela-
tives. An uncle of the bridegroom,
Dr. Matthew Chen, former resident
physician of Peiping hospital, is mak-
ing a tour of the world and stopped
here to visit Mr. Chen, remaining
here for the wedding.-
Other guests at the wedding were
Mrs. Fisher, Mrs. Davis, Miss Doris
Hsu of Foochow, Miss Pin-dji Chen
of Foochow, and Miss Doris Chen
with four fraternity brothers of Mr.
Chen, K. C. Lee, Chih-Chien Hsaio,
of Shanghai, Ta Li of Tientsin and
Yuen C. Shen of Shanghai. After the
ceremony a reception was held at the;
Michigan League.

"Galaxy Of' Stars"
System Kills Selff
NiRA. Report Finds
WASHINGTON, July 20. - (/P) --
Hollywood's galaxy of glamorous stars
was pictured today as something like
Frankenstein's monster.
Attacking the "star system" as at
present "exploited," an NRA report
indicated that it has turned against
the men who created it - the produc-
It tends to force salaries up to
"fantastic figures"- hitting the pro-
ducers a woeful blow in the pocket-
"The inflated values which pro-
ducers have placed upon a limited
number of executives and artists have
created a vicious circle of bidding for
their services," said a report to Hugh
S. Johnson by Sol A. Rosenblatt, NRA
division administrator.
"The creatures of the system have
turned to plague their masters."
Although he disclosed that the'
talkies paid 110 people larger salaries
in 1933 than that enjoyed by Presi-
dent Roosevelt, Rosenblatt ardently
championed the "artist."
"As a matter of principle," he said,
"no salary is excessive if the picture
produced by the individual receiving
the salary meets with unusual public
favor, as a result of unique direction
or artisti'y."
What he suggested was a commit-
tee to study whether it would not be
better to pay stars-according to what
they earn; that is, a percentage of
receipts superimposed on a minimum
salary base.
Although the movie industry lost
$19,589,393 last year, Rosenblatt re-
vealed that one actor received $315,-
000 and another artist $296,250. The
names were kept secret.

LONDON, July 20. - (1P) - Attor-

charges of continued misconduct since
his divorce action was brought Feb.

Notice is to be served on lawyers

London cabaret performer.
Fairbanks and the brown, bobbed-
haired Lady Ashley flew to Paris to-
gether July 7 and are now at Monte
