BBTTM IK AJttl" END~~ OF BACKETEER Criminologist Praises Recovery Act CHICAGO (HE) — The National Recovery act has brot the racketeer to the legal chopping block. Prof. John Landeseo, crlmluologist and University of Chicago profef- sor, declares: "The gangster's methods of terrorism and violence art no longer required to «tabllif« Dullness," Landesco said. "He is rushing to coyer, beaten by legal practices once held illegal under archlac law*. These. legafprmctlces under the Recovery *ct, L*nd«sco said, permit open covenants of trade, openly arrived »t, without fears of antitrust prosecution. Landesco, an associate of Prof. Raymond I. Moley for the last several years in crime research, said the desire codes of practice and price fixing in some business brot in the racketeer. "Professor Moley has known these things for several years," Landesco said. "He needed only an opportunity to put his ideas into operation." Undisciplined business Is indirectly to blame for tte racketeer, said Landesco. Failure of various business organizations to keep faith with codes of trade and fixed prices made the gangster a welcome assistant, with his terrorism and violence. "He forced adherence to his own ethics in trade snd competition un- tfl finally his ascendancy biot him control." The same condition applied to I'nkm labor, said Lnndesco. The old fashioned unioner was forced to give way to the terrorist because of la-vs descrying strikes and lockouts. "Business today is working out Its o<vn problem with governmental assistance." said the professor. "It is bargaining collectlvelv, setting i'i> codes of practice and stabilis- ing nriees. There no longer Is need for thp racketeer." Desire of business to "go fifrr'.^ht" and cleans? itself for po^d. evolves around the ousstion « f character and for'itude, h-» g?id. The Recovery act givt-s It this strength and inspires the public! faith "Adherence to the ways of stabilization has dislodged the racketeer and it is now up to bnfinpss to keep him out." sai' Lendesco. 1MKI DAILY T1IBUHE TIMEI AMEB IOWA MONDAY, ACGflUT 7, 1833. notrm Aimee Hutton and Daughter Come to "Grips" 0 ES There apparently was a heated difference of opinion .when Aimee Semple McPherson Hutton (right) and her daughter, Mrs. Roberta Smyth* (let*), debated what disposition to make of their luggage as they arrived in Baltimore, Md. f from Paris. Aimee la aeon Wearing a black satin dress sent to her by the congregation of her Angela* Temple fn I.os Angeles. "There is no need for him. The government ha* applied the axe, by defining trade problems and clearing away confuBlve and illegal laws. "Some businessmen may regard governmental activities an imposition but when we look around at the chaos brot about by the recent unnatural development, we find the need for strength. "The gangster had to come, the real enforcer of various archaic anti-trust laws. This legislation, found disastrous In England years ago. had been abolished there whi*» we developed them into restraint of trade statutes. "The man who heeded the message was forced to succumb to the racketeer system to remain in business. "Now we have the racketeer on the run. He IB looking for new fields and is slowly succumbing to reactionary public opinion. It is ; p to business to keep him out. "Will business do it? It is -a question." READ THE'WANTS Preliminary Work on Boulder Dam Begun Thirteen Years Ago This the third and last of a series of stories on Boulder dam, based on interviews with Prof. H. J. Gilkey of the Iowa State-college engineering staff, one of the consulting engineers on the project. By ROBERT.MURRAY Boulder dam is by far the biggest task the bureau of reclamation, largest dam builder in the world, ever has undertaken. The 3,300,000 cubic yards of concrete in the dam itself Is more than that used in all the dams- and concrete canal linings built by the bureau in the 30 years of its existence. Thirteen years'ago the preliminary work on the plans for the dam was begun and in those years immense efforts have been put forth to create the best possible dam and also a dam to be On Account of Expiration of Lease • <", f •* The Entire Stock of FURNITURE of the well known Henderson Furniture Company located 328 Main street, Ames, Iowa, will be offered at AUCTION On account of impaired health Mr. Henderson intends to retire from the furniture^ business at the expiration of this sale and Mr. Hoversten intends to continue if a suitable location can be secured.

Bechtel Sales Co. in Charge Henderson Furniture Co. 328 Main Street Largest and Best Known Rug and Furniture Store Ames, Iowa operated with "the greatest possible economy. Tests have been carried on at the University of California, in the bureau laboratories In Denver and in the. bureau of standards laboratories at Washington, D. C. Long Experiments Extensive experiments in design have been conducted for over seven years. The design has been checked by means' of models constructed and tested _by the bureau In University of Colorado laboratories. Prof. H. .T. Gilkey, head of theoretical and applied mechanics at Iowa State college, worked on the project while a member of the University of Colorado staff before he came to Iowa State two years ago. Professor Gilkey now is a member of the board of consulting engineers for concrete problems for Boulder dam. •At the university, tests were made on two models of the dam, one of a plaster of parls and cell- Ite mixture, the other of a specially made hard rubber, of the same specific gravity as concrete. Models of this and other dams are being studied In the course of a continuing investigation of mass concrete, the most extensive ever undertaken. On Solid Rock Drill holes under the damsite show that solid rock continues for at least 1,000 feet below the Colorado river bed. Earthquake studies show that any disturbance capable of damaging the dam probably would disrupt the whole continent. The project engineer, the man actively in charge at the damsite, is "Walker Young of* the bureau Staftr He works under R. F. Walter, eTifef ^engineer for the bureau, who in turn is under Elwood Mead, commissioner of reclamation. The designer of the dam is John L. Savage, chief designing engineer for the bureau, the outstanding authority on high dams. 9 The headquarters of the project Mrs. j. w. Tinsley, 70. former Ame* resident, died Sunday at her home.

Youth Lives With Stitches in Heart CHICAGO <UJ»>—A *Ub wound in his heart successfully sewed up after the organ had momentarily ceased beating, 18 yetr old EHhu Garmisa is given an even chance to recover. The youth, attacked and stabbed by an unidentified man,, was taken to the Lutheran hospital where Dr. J- D. Kochey, a surgeon on the staft of the University of Chicago medical school, undertook the un-. usual operation. It required only a few mitutes. The heart stopped beating while Kochey WM operating but was revived. are at Boulder City, on a specially constructed townsite 1,500 ieet above the elevation of the river and five miles from the damsite. The elevation gives a mean temperature seven degrees cooler than at the damiste. The government offices are air conditioned. Boulder City, where some 3,000 workers live, is controlled by the government Schools have been built and houses for men with families and dormitories for single men provided. After the completion of the dam and works, Boulder City wilj remain as a permanent community' and promises to become a recreation center during the spring an dfall seasons. Eventually a transcontinental highway will cross the top of the dam, probably via Kingman, Ariz. Below Canyon The damsite is 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, Nev., 1,075 miles west of Denver on the Los Angeles branch of the Union Pacific, 450 miles west of Salt Lake and 334 miles east of Los Angeles.. It is 275 miles .downstream from the Grand Canyon and is just below the southward turning of the river toward the Gulf of'California, near the tip of Nevada. Not far from the damsite-is Gyp cave, in which scientists have discovered evidence which they be- leve- carries man's history on this continent back at least 20,000 years. Previously there was no evidence of his existence on the continent longer than 10,000 years ago. In Gyp cave, remnants of man-made fires were discovered beneath sloth manure. The latest occurrence of the sloth in that vicinity is definitely known. With the signing of a presidential order making the whole Boulder dam region a huge game preserve, it is certain that the region will become a home for many species of animals and a stopping place for waterfowl and many other birds.
