Death Toll 58
In Holy Land
As Inter-Racial
dHatred Mounts
Britain Rushes Marines
In Attempt To Subdue
The HeavyBloodshed
Prisons Are Filled.
With Extremists
JERUSALEM, July 9.-(A')-The
seething Holy Land presented a black
picture of hate and mounting death
Gunfire and new incidents of sabo-
tage fed the flames of rage and the
despair of two races each determined
to preserve its homeland in Palestine.
Sharp warning of the spreading
enmity between Arab and Jew came
from over Trans-Jordan's borders, the
eastern part of Britain's Palestine
mandate where an Arab administra-
tion rules.
The death toll from bombing, snip-
ing, rioting and armed clashes since
July 5 stood at 58-44 Arabs and 14
The number of injured mounted
to 189--143 Arabs and, 46 Jews.
More than abscoie of the dead were
Arab victims of the Haifa market
place bombing Wednesday.
To stamp out disorders British pro-
tectors ordered into the bleeding land
the fleet of swift armored cars of the
11th Hussars regiment from Egypt.
Already the hills and rocks sanc-
tified by Jesus' touch echoed to the
stamp of hobnailed boots of 8,500
British regulars, who reinforced 1,-
500 police and who were themselves
reinforced by 1,700 marines and sail-
ors. Besides, 1,500 troops were or-
dered from Egypt.
Sturdy marines from H.M.S. Re-
pulse, the 32,000-ton cruiser ordered
from Mediterranean patrol duty at
Malta, replaced patrolling comrades
from the departing cruiser Emerald
Police dogs tracked down ambushers
in country districts.
There was death-like quiet in the
cities.,i Jewish shops were shut for
the Sabbath. Arab doors were closed
in protest.
Hot-heads of both races jammed
prisons and concentration camps.
Three Jews were detained for police
questioning in yesterday's Jerusalem
bombing when four Arabs were killed
and 36 wounded.
Trans-Jordan's ruler, the Emir Ab-
dullah Ibn Hussein, sent a memorial
to the Palestine high commissioner,
Sir Harold Alfred MacMichael, warn-
ing of possible trouble among his ex-
cited subjects unless strong measures
were taken to bring the killers of the
Haifa Arabs to quick justice.
Band And Choir
Made Up Of Music Heads
In Summer Session
Two of the ensemble groups in the
Summer Session of the School of
Music will present a program ilus-
trating the work being conducted in
this summer at 4:15 p.m. today in
Hill Auditorium.
The two groups will be the a cap-
pella choir under the direction of

Noble Cain of Chicago, noted for
the work his choruses have done on
the radio and in concerts, and the
University of Michigan band under
the direction of Prof. William D.
The personnel of the ensembles
will be made up largely of supervisors
and directors of music in colleges and
public schools, who are here for the
eight weeks period acquainting them-
selves with the newest methods of
developing musical organizations in
school and literature.
Reading Problems
To Be Discussed
A special summer conference on
reading problems is to be sponsored
here for the second time by the
School of Education, beginning to-
morrow. Lectures and group confer-
ences are planned for five consecu-
tive mornings, Monday through Fri-
day, at the University High School.

Jimmy Gets It' From Benson
For Committing 'Iionest Graft'

Johnston's Story Deplored
Although Jimmy's Acts
Are Called 'Bad Ethics'
James Roosevelt's selling insurance
to corporatons dependent upon gov-
ernmental goodwill can be deplored
as "bad ethics," declared a former
classmate of. James, Prof. George C.
S. Benson of the political science de-
partment, although Professor Benson
pointed out the vague general nature
of Alva Johnston's attack in the Sat-
urday Evening Post makes one won-
der if the article were not a typical
Post tirade against the New Deal.
"The article certainly was no credit
to the author, Johnston," Professor
Benson said, "for many of the quo-
tations in the article were obviously
manufactured and Mr. Johnston
rarely gave documentary proof for,
the charges."
Despite the fact that some of the
implications of the Post article were
probably false, James Roosevelt is
really guilty of what is commonly
known as "honest graft," Professor
Benson said. "Honest graft" means
the use of a political position for
personal gain, which is legal in every
respect but of which the ethics are
questionable. The insurance deal-
ings of the elder Roosevelt may be
classified as "honest graft" because

although his actions were perfectly
legal, he was in reality taking advan-
tage of the desire of corporations'
wishing to keep on good terms with
the govenment in order to sell in-
"Such practice is to be distinguish-
ed from outright graft or political
extortion," Professor Benson contin-
ued, "since no coercion is employed."
Thus Jimmy's insurance business
cannot be properly classed as a typi-
cal political insurance business, as the
Post implied, in which, for example,
people wishing to build are refused
permits unless they buy policies from
the bosses' favorite."
"But on the other hand," Professor
Benson said, "James Roosevelt's entry
into the insurance business should
be differentiated from the mere use
of his name for its publicity value,
traditional of presidents' sons. Ro-
osevelt's clients in buying his policies
are paying to keep on good terms with,
the administration. But when Nat-
ional Yeast Company made Richard
Cleveland one of its directors, and
when The Tuckenback Steamship
Company made Kermit Roosevelt its
head, they were paying for the pres-
'tige of having a presidential name on
their list of officials. This practice
cannot be termed unethical since
the name is not being used to curry
the favor of the government. It is

Noted Court Liberal Ill
Since Winter; Forced To
EmployOxygen Tent
Appointed To Bench
In 1932 By Hoover
PORT CHESTER, NY., July 9.--(P)
-Associate Justice Benjamin N. Car-
dozo of the United States Supreme
Court died late today at the home of
Justice Irving Lehman of the New
York Court of Appeals.,(
At his bedside were members of the
household and his secretary, Joseph
Raugh, who announced the death.
Cardozo had been ill with heart
trouble since last winter. In the last
few weeks he had spent much time
in an oxygen tent.
Justice Cardozo was 68 .last May 24.
He had long been a friend of Presi-
dent Roosevelt and only today the
President and Mrs. Roosevelt sent
flowers to him.
He came to Judge Lehman's home
from Washington in June to spend
the summer after being forced by ill-
ness to miss all the spring sessions of
the Court.
Cardozo had served on the Su-
preme Court since 1932, when he was
appointed by President Hoover.
Long celebrated as a liberal, he
went to the Court as successor to
Oliver Wendell Holmes, famed as
"The Great Dissenter."
Before that, Cardozo had been on
the New York Court of Appeals since
He was born in New York, the son
of a judge,-was graduated with high
honors from Columbia University,
and passed the bar examinations
without any formal legal education
on the basis of reading he had done in
his undergraduate years.
A staunch supporter of the New
Deal philosophy, he upheld 22 of 27
laws brought before the Supreme
Court in the historic period from 1934
to 1937.
His death ended more than a week's
fight to overcome a relapse from the
old heart ailment. The first news of
the relapse came on July 2, when
physicians reported he "has not been
doing so well."
For the last three days, the jurist's
condition had changed frequently but
it seemed hle was losing ground by
inches.mThen early today his secre-
tary announced that Cardozo had
"passed a poor night, but otherwise
his condition is unchanged."

Dies At 68, Chronic
Heart Proves Fatal



-- -r

With the hat of Speaker George A.
achroeder of Detroit already in the
ing, Nowicki faced what appeared
Akely to develop into the hottest fight
an the Democratic ticket. Schroeder
ommands a. strong following in his
home-town, which is also Nowicki's,
ind has made many friends out-
The Lieutenant Governor, however,
has at least the half-hearted blessing
f his party organization-despite a
oolness that has grown up between
his office and that of Governor
Mlurphy. Without naming names or
citing specific instances, Edward J.
Fry,' State Democratic chairman, ap-
pealed to his lieutenants months ago
o shy away from primary scraps and
support the entire slate of state of-
ficers for reelection.
The unknown quantity in-the lieu-
tenant governor equation is State
Senator Ernest C. Brooks of Holland.
Petitions to qualify him for the race
have been in circulation for several
weeks, but Brooks apparently has
been waiting to learn Nowicki's plans
before declaring his own intentions.
Some of Brooks friends saw in the
prospective contest between Detroit-
ers an opportunity for an out-state
candidate to turn the tables on Now-
icki, who won he nomination in 1936
while two Democratic rivals, Secre-
tary of State Leon D. Case and former
Senator Hienry C. Glassner, were
driving the out-state vote between
Governor Murphy has declared a
policy of strict neutrality in the mat-
ter. "If Nowicki supports the Federal
and State administrations, he will be
a strong candidate," was the Gover-
nor's comment.
Nowicki himself claims no alliances,
"I am interested in only one candi-
dacy" he said, "and that is the can-
didacy of Leo J. Nowicki for lieuten-
ant governor.'
