Discrimination Charges
Against Prison Denied
MARQUETTE, Aug. 6.- ) -
Charges of "discrimination" against
Negro inmates of the Marquette
branch prison and that: "Conditions
resembled those of the south," cn-
tained in a Pittsburgh (Courier) Ne-
gro paper were denied here today by
Warden Marvin L. Coon. d tn
Letters to Sen. Charles Diggs, of
Detroit, only Negro member of the
State Legislature, and the Pittsburgh
paper, containing the charges, were
smuggled out of the prison and
brought stories that were "stream-
ered" in the eastern weekly.
Warden Coon admitted that no Ned
groes were employed in the prison
kitchen or dining room, as charged.
Coon reported that there are 136
Negroes confined to the prison here
and of these 74 are employed at dif-
ferent jobs. There are only few in-
dustries working in the prison be-
cause of a recently passed law pro-
hibiting prison-made goods from
competing with privately produced
Italian Steamer Missing
After Air Attack
LONDON, Aug. 6-(I)-The Ital-
ian steamer Mongia was missing to-
night hours after she and the British
tanker British Corporal were myster-
iously attacked by unidentified
bombing plants in the western Medi-
The Mongioia flashed a brief SOS
saying she had been attacked. There
were no further reports.
The British Corporal, after sending
an SOS and then retracting it,
reached the Port of Algiers under her
own power and apparently not ser-
iously damaged. None of her crew
of 43 was injured.
Both ships were attacked almost
at the same time and in the same spot
off the coast of Algeria. Both Span-
ish Government and Insurgent planes
are based within striking distance.
Neither ship was engaged in Span-,
ish trade.
Officers of theBritish Corporal said
three monoplanes dropped bombs9
around their ship for about an hour.

Trains Are So Noisy That Colby
Colleoe Is Going To Move On

WATERVILLE, Me., Aug. 6.-(P)-
Colby College officials couldn't move
the heavy trains that have rattled the
windows of campus buildings- and dis-
turbed students for 50 years so-they
decided to move the college.
Plans to move the entire campus of
the 120-year-old institution to May-
flower hill, three miles distant, are
A third of the $3,000,000 necessary
for the project has been raised, and
Colby alumni and friends are carry-
ing on the drive.
Tian For Expansion
A score or more new buildings will!
house the college on its new site, a
spot believed adequate for further'
expansion which present campus sur-
roundings prohibit.
Educators, fascinated with the op-
0ortunity to institute a model New
England college, combining modern-
ity with a century of background,
have taken a lively interest in Colbys
plan for a "moving day."
A Maine educational commission
reported in 1931, that adjacent rail-
road', tracks and yards would hinder
growth of the college. To move was
the suggestion for escape. President
Franklin W. Johnson, formerly of
Teachers College, Columbia Univer-
sity school, agreed.
$100,000 Raised
Citizens of Waterville, alarmed at
the prospect of having the college
It Takes A Lot Of
Gadgets To Put A
Movie Into Order
HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 6.-(A)-If
you've ever had spots before your
eyes, pity the poor movie actors. With
them it's a continual case of gadgets
before the eyes.
Shut ins? Why the director even
puts marks on the floor beyond which
actors cannot step. If they did they'd
be out of camera range.
To focus cameras, assistants are
forevere holding tape measures up
to an actor's face.
There's another little trick that
drives neophytes wild. After a scene
another assistant .steps up to him
with a sign that has a clapper ar-
rangement on it. Before the actor
can think the clapper is. snapped,
whack, right under his nose. This
photographs, enabling the cutter to
identify the scene later.
Color has increased the complica-
tions. One new dingus is a meter that
registers light intensity, which. must
be kept uniforn throughout the scene.
Another is the "lily," a color chpart

ta, raised $100,000 to purchase the
Mayflower hill site.
The depression held up the moving
program in 1932 but the goal still re-I
mained before Colby men and women,j
a challenge to be taken up with re-
turning prosperity.
The gift of $200,000 by George Hor-
ace Lorimer, former editor of the
Saturday Evening Post, for a chapel,
signalized resumption of the cam-
paign which President Johnson hopes
wil lculminate in a definite move next
year. Ground for the chapel will be
broken on Aug. 18.
Dr. George G. Averill of Water-
ville, and Merton Miller, Los An-
geles banker ,each have pledged a
building. Alumni, through hundreds
of donations, raised $300,000 for a
men's union to be dedicated to a
former president, Arthur J. Roberts.
Students. recently raised $5,000.
Maine residents and summer resi-
dent friends of! the college, trustees
believe, will contribute the remain-
ing $2,000,000.
