Bitter Struggle
(Continued from Page 1)
which quickly put a new face on the
court bill situation, occurred scarcely
two hours after the bitter dispute had
drawn to one climax in the election
of Senator Barkley (Dem., N.Y.) to
the Democratic leadership, succeed-
ing Senator Robinson of Arkansas.
Receives Support From Backers
Barkley obtained much of his sup-
port from among backers of the
Roosevelt bill. By the breath-tak-
ing margin of a single vote, he de-
feated Senator Harrison of Missis-
sippi, backed generally by the op
ponents of the bill. The vote was 38
to 37. Soon afterward, President
Roosevelt called both to the White
House for a significant conference.
At the capitol it was regarded as
of the utmost significance that Gar-
ner, instead of sending for Wheeler,
went himself to the Montanan's of-
fice. Their conference was brief and
to the point. Garner emerged after
20 minutes, joked with reporters and
Wheeler told the newsmen he
would call his associates of the op-
position into caucus, obtained a con-
census, and reduce it to writing.
Whentthe meeting will be held, he
did not say, but it was apparent no
time will be lost.
Must Scrap Additional Justices
Speaking for himself, meanwhile,
he outlined a settlement formula that
overlooked nothing.
The provision of the bill calling for
additional Supreme Court justices
must be scrapped, he said, but the
opposition would be willing to ap-
prove some phases of the bill dealing
with procedure in the lower courts.
They would take, he thought, a
provision that cases involving the
constitutionality of Federal legisla-
tioncould be appealed directly to the
I Supreme Court, and an increase in
the numbertof lower court judges for
districts with congested dockets.
But, he continued, his colleagues
will not countenance the Roosevelt
bill's provision for the assignment of
judges from district. to district, nor
its section calling for a proctor to
oversee and recommend the assign-
ment of judges in such a way.
Making Sure Of Victory
Finally, he asserted that any com-
promise must be based upon an un-
derstanding that there are to be no
House amendments increasing the
size of the Supreme Court.
"We have got the votes to recom-
mit the present bill to the judiciary
committee," he asserted, emphatical-
"Our group is willing to work out
some legislation for reforms. The
difference between the position of
the opponents of the bill and some
advisors of the President is that we
aer for reform and they want con-
trol of the Court."
Senator Borah (Rep., Ida.), with
whom Wheeler was in conference
during the day, also declared that
"Anything which looks like political
control of the courts" will be barred

Hornsby Fired
By President Of
St. Louis Club
ST. LOUIS, July 21.-(;P)-Donald
L. Barnes, president of the St. Louis
Browns, today announced that Man-
ager Rogers Hornsby had been re-
lieved of his duties effective today.
Barnes said the action was "taken
for the good of the Browns."
The president of the club said
Hornsby's contract, which ran
throngh the 1938 season, was so writ-
ten it could be "broken at the discre-
tion of the club."
Jim Bottomley, coach and reserve
first baseman, was named acting
,Charley O'Leary, veteran coach,
was released and Gabby Street, for-
mer manager of the St. Louis Car-
dinals and other teams, was signed
as his successor.
Hornsby would not comment on
his ouster, declaring "I have nothing
to say."
He added, however, that he had no
immediate plans since it was probably
too late in the season to make anoth-
er connection.
Hornsby, former National League
second baseman, who led the circuit
in hitting for seven consecutive sea-
sons, became manager of the Browns
in 1933, succeeding Wade Killifer.

and stimulating people.
Met Faculty Man
Anchille Trovati, of Milan, Italy,
became interested in this University
through a meeting with Prof. Albert
White, of the Metalurgical Engin-
eering Department. Mr. Trovati is
taking courses to prepare him to en-
ter the Michigan School of Mines at
Houghton. He has found no adjust-
ment problems and is very interested
in his work. The Golf Course is a
favorite amusement place for him,
he says he plays nearly every day and
is going to take the Royal and An-
cient sport back to his Italy with him.
A very interesting personality is
Anwar Hasani, of Bagdad, Ira~q (Per-
sia). He is being sent by his govern-
ment to take some special engineer-
ing courses in hydraulics. Mr. Has-
ani has made himself very popular
here, according to his many friends,
with his wonderful sense of humor
and likeable personality. It was not
surprising therefore, when he replied
to the query "Have you had any great
problem in' assimilating yourself to

world?" with a quick answer in the

toric Greek; therefore the ch sound
was aspirated.
As argument four Dr. Sturtevant
referred to the reduplication of sounds
found commonly in Greek names and
especially in nursery words. When
the redoubled sound is ch, th, or ph,
the result is always k, t, or p, a fact
which was used to indicate that ch,'
for instance, is composed really of two
elements the first of which is a stop
and the second, by inference, an as-
Additional arguments Dr. Sturte-
vant based upon the fact that some
early Greek dialects have distinct
signs for p plus h, instead of the
symbol phi, and upon the, circum-
stance that also in some early alpha-
bets which lacked a symbol for x (the
Greek ksi) the people used chi plus
sigma instead of what otherwise would
be expected as kappa plus sigma.
His remaining three reasons from
internal evidence were drawn from
various linguistic phenomena, the as-
similation of aspirates in Attic Greek,
as in Attic "hechei" from earlier
"echei"; the kind of dissimilation ob-
served in the late Greek of Ptolemaic
Egypt; and, finally, the metathesis of
ispiration, as in Greek "chithon"
from the earlier "hiton."}

to prove the wisdom of his words.
For it isn't the initial cost that ties
the most reef knots in the purse
strings-it's the upkeep. When a
Class-J hull goes down the ways shel
may have cost anywhere from $100,-
000 to $150,000, but, before she ap-
pears at the starting line for herl

an investment of probably well over
Requisites of one of the big craft,
and their costs, include:
Two 165-foot, hollow metal masts,
$15,0000 to $22,000 each; two booms,
$5,000 each; three mainsails, $10,000
to $15,000 each; three spinnakers, $5,-
000 to $7,000 each; eight to ten genoa
jibs, $4,000 to $7,000 each; five quad-
rilateral or "Greta Garbo" jibs, $3,-
to $5,000 each; numerous small work-
ing headsails, $1,000 to $2,000 each.
Every boat must be provided with
more than these bare necessitie .
Fittings come to another $10,000.
If the owner wishes he can sink a tidy
sum on interior comforts.
Harold S. Vanderbilt, skipper-owner
of Ranger, recently nominated to de-
fend the America's cup against T. O.
M. Sopwith's second british challen-
ger, Endeavour II, was gouged by the
overhead early this season.
As Ranger was under tow from her
Bath, Me., builders this spring, rigging
parted aloft and her tall mast broke
off and plunged like a javelin into the
sea. A $22,000 bubble had burst.
Many sails blew out during the
trials. Others undoubtedly will go
before the international sailing classic
opening July 31 is over.

Shipyard bills are another unend-
ing tax, for the sloops must be fre-
quently hauled out on marine rail-
ways to have their bottoms polished
to permit maximum speed.
Professional crews number about
24 men. Their wages on American
yachts range from $100 to $110 a
month, and food, thus furnishing the
owner another sizable item of ex-
pense. It has been estimated chow
for Ranger's crew costs Vanderbilt
$2 a day, per man. The owner also
furnishes uniforms. The profesisonal
sailing master's salary is a matter be-
tween him and his employer.
The more races a cup sloop wins,
the more it costs her owner, for $2.50
is paid for every start and $5 for a
start coupled with a victory. Ranger
won 12 starts and there weresa few
additional unfinished races, so her
crew collected almost $70 each in
bonuses during the preliminaries.
However, this is the expense most
cheerfully borne.
No figures are available as to the
cost of the Sopwith invasion, easily
the most ambitious bid to recover a
trophy held in this country since 1851,
but it is generally supposed, because
of the high price of American labor,
the outlay for specific items should
be on the other side.
