Western States
Report Support
Of Third Term
2 Democrat Leaders, GOP
Chairman Say Roosevelt
Will Seek Re-election
Murray Pledges Aid
report of strong sentiment in the
west for a third term for President
Roosevelt brought renewed discus-
sion among politicians today of the
possibility he may run again.
Two Democratic legislators-and.
Chairman John Hamilton of the Re-
publican National Committee-agreed
that Mr. Rodsevelt might seek re-
election, but two other Democrats
spoke scoffingly of third term pros-
Senator Murray (Dem-Mont.) said
many voters in -the west wanted Mr.
Roosevelt to have a third term and
that he believed the President would
be "guided by the need for continu-
ing his program." He added:
No One Else Will Do
"I would support the President for
a third trm and work actively for
him ifhe decided to seek it."
Another Montana Democrat, Rep.
Jerry J. O'Connell, said in Los An-
glfs no one was in sight who could'
"successfully carry on" the Presi-
dent's program and that he believed
Mr. Roosevelt would be compelled to
run again.
In Portland, Me., Hamilton, asked
by reporters whether he thought the
Chief Executive would seek a third
term, said, "Very definitely."
In contrast, Senator McKellar
(Dem.-Tenn.) passed off as "just
talk" all rumors about Mr. Roosevelt's
candidacy in 1940.
"I never favored a third term," he
remarked, "and I do not anticipate
it now."
Minton Thinks Not
From Senator Minton (Dem-Ind)
came an assertion that he did not be-
lieve the President would consider
four more years in the White House.
The Indiana senator has been one
of the Chief Etecutive's staunchest
supporters; but also has been one of
those booming Paul V. McNutt, high
commissioner of the Philippines, for
the 1940 Democratic nomination.
Murray, contending there might be
"retrogression" if the Democrats nom-
inated anyone but the President in
1940, said it was "important that the
reforms President Roosevelt has insti-
tuted be carried on if our system of
competitive enterprise is to be pre-
More Depressions
"If we have a few more depressions
which throw 16 to 20 million people
out of work," he said, "we won't have
a Democratic system of government in
the United States."
Speaking in a similar vein, O'Con-
nell asserted Mr. Roosevelt was de-i
termined to press forward plans for1
industrial expansion, with govern-
ment, business and labor cooperating,I
and for government use and control of
money for credit purposes.
"The broad base of the plan," he1
said, "would call for the production
of goods and rendering of services
under an economy of plenty, rather1
than an economy of scarcity."I

Gale Ravages
Lake St. Clair
Area; Six Hurt
New Baltimore Is Scene
Of Windstorm Which
Levels Many Buildings
No Warning Given
NEW BALTIMORE, Mich., Aug. 16
-()=A' windstorm of cyclonic pro-
portions roared in from Anchor Bay
on Lake St. Clair this afternoon
causing the injury of at least six per-
sons, demolishing houses, barns and
filling stations, uprooting thousands
of trees and levelling fields of corn
before it had spent its strength. Heavy
rains accompanied the high wind.
Residents of the stricken area said
the windstorm struck almost without
warning, being preceded by only a few
minutes by black clouds that appeared
on the horizon. Many of the residents
took refuge in basements of their
homes while other laid down on the
Most seriously injured was twelve-
year-old Joseph Kratz, who was play-
ing in the farm yard of his home on
the New Baltimore highway west of
the city. The wind stripped the roof
and the porch from his house, much.
of the timber landing on the boy. He
was taken to a hospital at Mt. Clem-
ens where scalp wounds were treated
and he was detained to determine if
he had suffered a skull fracture.
Ignoring high-tension power lines
that had been blown down the boy's
mother, Mrs. Josephine Kratz, drove+
him to the hospital.
Gas Station Hit
Three ocupants of a gasoline sta-
tion three miles south of New Balti-
more were also injured as the wind
lifted the structure from its founda-
tions and carried it 'more than 100
yards away into a corn field.r
Orville Shuttleworth, 25; his sister,+
Glads, 21, and Gus Kretz, 20, were in
the station and lay face down on the
floor as the storm struck. They were
swept more than 20 yards along the
ground, Kretz suffering a broken1
shouder, Miss Shuttleworth cuts and
bruises and Shuttleworth cuts,
John Gonzales, 28-year-old Detroit
bakery truck driver, leaped from the+
vehicle just before it was lifted off
the ground and carried more than 50
yards. The truck landed upside down.
Gonzales was carried a considerable
distance by the wind but escaped
without injury.
At the home of Mrs. Nathan Xel-
drum near the Shuttleworth gasoline
station, two of three children who
took refuge in the basement when the
storm broke suffered cuts. Manley
Meldrum,' 8, received a cut that a
physician required seven stitches to
close. His sister, Leona, 14, was
bruised by flying debris.
Wind Breaks Windows
Fourteen windows in the home of
Frederick Mahn were blown out while
Mahn's fishing shanty was picked up
and carried a half-mile away.
A hurried checkup of the affected
area revealed that 14 houses and
nine barns had been badly damaged
by the storm. Six automobiles were
turned upside down by the high wind.
Telephone and power lines were
also riddled, New Baltimore being
without power for an hour and a half
before the Detroit Edison Co. was
able to establish an emergency line.
Unofficial estimates by the Macomb
County Road Commission placed the
storm damage in the New Baltimore
area at $100,000. Commission em-
ployes were kept busy removing fallen
trees from the highway while power
company employes lifted fallen pow-
er lines from roads.
Other Storms Reported
Near Jasper in Lenawee County a
similar storm struck with one injury

being reported. Mrs. Will McClene-
then, '78, living on a farm. at Ogden
Station, was taken to a hospital for
treatment after the wind had blown
pieces of glass out of the window
casements of her home into her arms
and legs. Part of her house was un-
The barn on the farm of Glenn
Nash, three miles southeast of Jasper,
was demolished, causing loss of hay
and grain that was in the building.
In this area damage similar to that
at New Baltimore occurred with corn
fields being levelled, trees being up-
rooted and power and telephone wires
A rainfall of two inches was re-
corded in nearby Adrian but no seri-
ous damage was reported.

In IM Table Tennis

off the doubles title in IM table ten-
nis competition with his partner Ken
Laut, added the singles crown to his
record, when he defeated J. Krum-
bein in a four game match, 21-18, 18-

ner is F. J. Thomson, who captured

Murphy Calls,
HeMalth Meeting:
For Sep.10th
Aim Is To Muster Support
For Federal Program,
Governor Announces
-Representatives of the medical pro-
fession, labor groups, farmers and
other organizations will be invited
to attend a state-wide health confer-
ence at Lansing Sept. 10 at which ef-
forts "to muster support behind a
Federal health program" will be
made, Gov. Frank Murphy an-
nounced today.
Health officials at Washington
have communicated with him fre-
quently regarding new developments,
Murphy said, and may undertake in
Michigan its "first step in the new
health program."
Surgeon-General Thomas Parran,
head of the Federal health service,
may speak at the conference, ac-
cording to the Governor.
"The conference will approach its
deliberations from the point of view
of the person who needs medical at-
tention or treatment," Murphy de-
clared. "Group health insurance,
group medicine and area clinics will
be among the subjects discussed. The
goal is to make possible the best
medical attention both to the inci-
dent and to persons of moderate
"Some persons may call this sort of
program socialized medicine, but it is
too big and too important to be given
a snap characterization. Certainly
there is no need for conflict between
the medicalprofessiongand the gov-
ernment in such a program. Natural-
ly, we will rely on the profession for

appointed to draft recommendations,

"The conference will seek to de-
velop just what the problem is and
how it can be met," he declared.
"When that is done, I believe the
Federal Government will undertake
in Michigan the first of its new health
programs. Michigan will be the lo-
cation because the state government
is interested in the field of medicine,
because our hospital and health set-
ups are good, because mass industries
are located in this state, and because
our health administration is non-
