Gov. Kelly To
Quit Politics;
Brown To Run
By The Associated Press
LANSING, July 12 - Disclosures
that Governor Kelly will return to
private life at the end of his present
term and that Lt. Gov. Vernon J.
Brown definitely would be a candi-
date for the Republican gubernator-
ial nomination today cleared a lot
of speculation from Michigan poli-
Effectively stilling a budding cam-
paign to run Kelly for a third term,
the Governor told newsmen at a
press conference that he would not
seek re-election and would not op-
pose U. S. Senator Arthur H. Van-
denberg for the Senate, another con-
test which speculation had visioned
for Kelly.
Brown a Candidate
Summoned immediately to Kelly's
office to hear the news, Brown emerg-
ed to tell newsmen "Certainly, I am
a candidate for governor. I said so
before and I have always intended
Brown said there was no discus-
sion with Kelly about the Governor
supporting him as his successor.
Kelly asserted his office was exper-
iencing a rising tide of inquiries as
to his political intentions and that
he wanted to stop further specula-
'I never have had any intention of
opposing Senator Vandenberg," Kel-
ly said.
'Program Well-Anchored'
The Governor said he might have
been tempted to seek a third term
if his program were in danger of
sabotage by his successors, but he
said "the program is well anchored
and my fine group of state officials
will carry this forward."

Director of People's Institute
Will Lecture at IRA Meeting

"What Can the Churches Do About
Racial Discrimination?" will be the
topic of a lecture by Rev. Claude Wil-
liams before a meeting of the Inter-
Racial Association at 7:30 p.m. EWT
(6:30 p.m. CWT) Monday at the
'Michigan Union.
Institute Director
Rev. Williams is the director of
the People's Institute of Applied Re-
ligion, whose purpose it is to fight
fascist trends in the south. In the
southern states, where the hatreds
of racial differences, both White-
Negro and Jewish, are used to keep
the tenant farmers and industrial
workers disunited, the Institute has
adopted the technique of quietly
training local leaders. These leaders
help to stem the tide of reaction.
The work of the Institute has ex-
tended to aiding southern migrants
in Detroit under the auspices of the
Gospel Preachers Council of Applied
Investigated Fascists
Rev. Williams conducted an ex-
haustive personal survey and took an
inventory of Detroit Fascist organi-
zations and their leadership.

Michigan Hero
On Way Home
By The Associated Press
FORT SHERIDAN, Ill., July 12-
Sgt. Oscar G. Johnson Jr., Congres-
sional Medal of Honor winner, will
leave Fort Sheridan Friday afternoon
to return to his father's dairy farm
near Foster City, Mich.
Public relations officers here dis-
closed tonight that the 24-year-old
hero would be discharged tomorrow,
and Johnson said he would return to
the 550-acre farm from which he was
inducted Oct. 8, 1942.
General Mark Clark awarded the
sergeant the Medal of Honor last
June 25 for his feat in killing 40
Germans and taking 24 prisoners
near Scarperia, Italy, on Sept. 17,
1944. During the action he silenced,

Cedric Belfrage's "South of God"
is a biography of Rev. Williams and
sets forth the entire scope of the
work of the Institute. "A Faith to
Free the People," by the same author
brings the work of Williams' Insti-
tute up to date and includes a de-
scription of his fight against "Chris-
tian" fascism as it is preached and
practiced among the poor white and
the poor colored people in Detroit.
'Gag' Ordinance
Still a Puzzle
Dearborn Will Wait
A Week for Decision
By The Associated Press
DEARBORN, Mich., July 12-The
citizenry here will have to wait at
least a week to learn whether its
genial mayor, Orville L. Hubbard, is
guilty of violating the city's new
"gag" ordinance.
That was made certain today when
Municipal Judge George A. Belding
adjourned the mayor's trial to give
City Counsel time to answer charges
that the act violates the federal and
state constitutions and the Dearborn
charter. -
Judge Belding said he would rule
on the matter of constitutionality as
soon as Frank McCann, assistant
corporation counsel, replies to the
arguments of Charles A. Wagner,
Hubbard's attorney. Wagner contend-
ed the ordinance infringes on the
right of free speech.
Pased over the mayor's veto, the
ordinance prohibits Hubbard and
other city officials from "all public
contacts" without the approval of the
newly-created Municipal Public Re-
lations Bureau, which as yet has ap-
proved no contacts.

Le endelh
Secret Service
(Mr. X', Is Dead
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, July 12-Death has
sealed the secrets of a secret service
agent whose name, little known to
the public, was fabulous in police and
other circles.
A tew of the exploits of Leo Wen-
dell were disclosed today following
his death.
Known as 'Mr. X'
At various times he was widely
known as "Mr. K-79" or "Mr. X"
or "Mr. Walsh" but never by his real
name, since he preferred to remain
anonymous and in the background.
As a military intelligence officer
during World War I, Wendell stole a
brief case from the notorious Franz
Von Papen, German agent, which
contained a list of German secret
Wendell, a native of Holland, Mich.,
was agent K-79 for the govern-
ment's secret service when he "join-
ed" the Communist Party and was a
delegate at' the convention held in
the sand dunes of Berrien County.
The information he obtained result-
ed in prosecution of William Z. Fos-
ter and others in Michigan's first
criminal syndicalism trial.
Served Three Departments
At various times the 56-year-old
sleuth worked as an operator for the
secret service, Department of Justice
and the Treasury Department's pro-
hibition squads. Once he posed as a
rum runner to obtain evidence used
by the government in the trial of
prohibition agents. In that case he
was known as "Mr. X."
Wendell was an investigator for
the Buckley grand jury and for the
Ferguson-O'Hara grand jury. He
also was named chief investigator for
the Circuit Judge Leland W. Carr
one-man grand jury but later re-
signed, reportedly after a clash with
Special Prosecutor Jim Sigler.
