RANK AND FILE REVOLTS:
Democratic Convention S
To Fight on Rents
DETROIT, July 7-(/P)-A week of
uncontrolled prices came to an end
today with Michigan's cost-of-living
index shimmying like a high-speed
auto with the clutch out.
The State Government moved to
clamp the lid on any rent spiral with
a price-control call to the special
"Bonus Legislature" which convenes
in Lansing Tuesday.
Even as this call went out, pres-
sure groups of landlords and tenants
announced plans to converge on the
capital to plead on opposite sides of
the rent control issue.
Ferguson Favors Increase
Some indication of what tenants
may expect from any State rent con-
trol act came from Michigan's Junior
Senator, Homer Ferguson. He told
a group of Detroiters Friday that he
would consider a general 1 per cent
rent increase Justified.
Ferguson's attitude might be ex-
pected to carry weight with Gov. Har-
ryF. Kelly, since the latter consulted
with the senator before adding rent
control tentatively to \the agenda
of the special session.
The whole touchy dispute over
OPA controls was climaxed a week
ago when President Truman's veto of
a makeshift OPA extension bill al-
lowed the agency to die.
State Increases Spotty
Since then prices in Michigan have
shown spotty increases, although the
general price line has remained'fairly
First reports indicated there was
no general increase in rentals. Most
cases brought to public attention con-
c'erned landlords who used stiff rent
boosts to force out tenants whom
they classed as "undesirable."
The same was apparently true of
foodstuffs. Some cities reported prices
up from 33 to 100 per cent on such
scarce items as butter and meat.
However, some of the State's largest
retail grocers appeared to be fulfilling
their pledge to keep prices at an
Most merchants emphasized a will-
ingness to hew to the old price line
as long as wholesalers do not kite
In Detroit, the Bureau of Markets
reported that radical price increases
in the meat industry have been "pret-
ty much restricted" to some of the
. Depie this optimistic -tone, calves
liver was selling as high as $1 per
pound, sirloin steak stood at 85 cents
a pound, and there were sharp boosts
in the prices of hamburger and ba-
con, where either could be found.

LANNSING, July 6-A rank-and-file
rebelli in Michigan's Democratic
party boiled out on the party's state
convention floor here today as an
apparent majority of the delegates
howled unsuccessfully for the scalps'
of their two National Committee
members, E. Cyril Bevan and Mrs.
Clara Van Auken.
The forces of Murray D. Van Wag-
oner, nominee for governor, in com-
plete control of the convention other-
wise, finally resorted to outright
steam roller tactics to quell the up-
rising and adjourned the convention
while a resolution still was pending
to demand the resignations of the two
I acked shoulder to shoulder be-
neath the rostrum and standing on
their chairs throughout the hall,
the delegates roared for a chance
to vote on the resolution.
President Truman's nomination,
with endorsement of Bevan and Mrs.
Van Auken, of Theodore Levin of De-
troit and Justice Raymond W. Starr
of the State Supreme Court for two
vacant Federal District Court ap-
pointments were the cause of the
A strongly worded resolution read
to the convention by Harry Glass, Jr.,
of Grand Rapids, Resolutions Com-
mittee chairman, declared the party
"repudiated" he leadership of Bevan
and Mrs. Van Auken and charged
them with ignoring both the wishes
and welfare of the party. The reso-
lution condemned Levin as having
been on a reception committee for
a former Republican presidential
candidates and for not being a Demo-
crat, and objected that Starr's ap-
pointment to the Federal Bench cost
the Democrats a State Supreme
On a test of strength and a motion
to table the resolution, the party
leadership lost by a vote of 1,136 to
Then the leadership put a motion
to adjourn before the house. Obser-
vers were certain that it was shouted
down, but Carl Weideman, Wayne
County Circuit Court Commissioner
and permanent chairman, declared
the meeting adjourned. The dele-
gates howled. Some leaped to the
platform and attempted to organize
a rump session, but it gradually pet-
Some leaders of the anti-Bevan-
Van Auken forces stormed out of
the hall shouting "we'll vote for
Sigler." (Kim Sigler is Exe Re-
publican nominee for governor.)
Before the last-minute row, Van
Wagoner's slate for his running
mates in November slid through on
greased wheels. The only opposition
and that was not spirited, was to
his choice of Victor E. Bucknell, of
Vicksburg, for the nomination for
State Supreme Court Justice.
Bucknell defeated Edward T. Kane
of Algonac and Howard L. Campbell
The remainder of the ticket chos-
en, all without opposition:
For attorney general-Thurman B.
(Sam) Doyle, of Menominee.
For secretary of state-Joseph L.
Bannigan, Assistant Wayne County
For state treasurer-John J Koz-
aren, Wayne County treasurer de-
feater for renomination at the prim-
For audlitor general-Marvin Coon,
of Escanaba, former Warden of the
Marquette Branch Prison.
All but Kozaren are veterans .of
either the first or second World War.
Campbell and Bannigan and Doyle
served in World War I and Coon
in both wars.
The nominations were peaceful but
there was no peace all day in the
resolutions committee room.
Van Wagoner made a personal ap-
peal to halt the resolution and fail-

"Anything which will stimulate the
average citizen's interest in this
problem is decidedly beneficial."
Under the proposed plan (which is
illustrated graphically in the chart
accompanying this article) the peo-
ple will elect only a governor as the
responsible head of state, a lieuten-
ant governor who would preside over
the Senate and stand by for an emer-
gency, and an auditor general who
would act as the legislature's check
A cabinet composed of all depart-
ment heads would advise the gover-
nor on matters of general policy. Cer-
A POTENT ESSENCE OF
tain specific' policy problems would
be handled by the planning commis-
sion, military department and tem-
porary miscellaneous commissions.
The state manager would coordi-
nate the functions of the organiza-
tional, personnel (civil service,)
purchasing, legal and financial
agencies with departments which
serve the public directly.
These service agencies have direct
control over all state activities in-
volved in the fields of conservation,
public works, education, public safe-
ty, business regulation, agriculture,
vocational and professional stan-
dards, labor, public health and men-
tal hygiene, welfare and liquor con-
