WOMAN SUBMITS TO FREEZING Declare Scholl Case Dead Issue LANSIN1G, Oct. 28.—(/I 5 )—The attempt to extradite Frank B. Scholl, convicted swindler whose parole became a political Issue in 1938, is far from a dead issue, Attorney General Thomas Read declared today. The attorney general addressed his assurance to A. L. Miller, editor and publisher of the Battle Creek Enquirer and News, who had asked about the status of the case. Read explained that Scholl, wanted in Michigan to answer charges of parole violation and other swindles, has appealed to the Tennessee supreme court against being returned to Michigan and a Hearing will not be held before the November term. Read said an assistant attorney general would go to Tennessee to argue the case before the high court. The late Governor Frank D. Fitzgerald paroled Scholl on one of the .swindling charges on which he had been convicted and pardoned him on another late in his first term as governor. He later said he regretted his action. The case became a political issue when he sought a second term in 1938.

Oct. 28.—(/?)—An opinion of the attorney general today held that there was no !e- Kal method of preventing the drilling ot wolls in an unimproved part of Ro.scdalo Memorial park cemetery in Kent county now that drilling permits had been Js.suod for tho projects. Tho ouinion, asked by Rep. /Uo Dykstra, of Grand Rapids, said permits to dig two wells in the cemetery wore granted legally by the state to the Twin Drilling company. The responsibility for permitting the drilling rested with the cemetery association, tho opinion .said, and the state .supervisor of wells would have no authority to withhold the permits. There was nothing in the law to permit revocation of the permits, the opinion .said The American college girl, it is said, is adopting the Greek peasant way of protecting her complexion against sun burn by taking a huge flowered handkerchief, folding it into a triangle which is put over her head. Ends are then brought forward, crossed over the nose and tied hi a knot at the back of the head. Various nobles, during the middle ages, ground diamonds to powder and used them to poison their enemies. The lethal effect of such a powder Is decidedly questionable, according to scientists, and what deaths, if any, occurred, are probably attributable to psychological effects plus other poisons that WC1 '° glv ^L. for gooci measure. There are 75 varieties of fancy mice bred in United States and England, and additional varieties are being bred and developed to true strains from time to time. - Up to now, American naval experts are inclined to believe Germany must be waging submarine warfare mainly for propaganda purposes, since, by military standards, the undersea offensive (has been weak despite keen marksmanship. Prom the commercial shipping angle, the main German I objective should be to cut off 'the British from their colonial .supply line. They almost accomplished that mission during the World war. when the Allies lost about 15 million tons of coniniorcial shipping worth about seven billion dollars including both ships and car- uoe.s. ' At the height of the unre- .strictod submarine cannrii"n 'in 1917. the Germans sank I : 134 British merchant .shins and i thom.selvos lost 75 submarines The British wore Idsin:- about, jfour ships a day. I Today .submarine warfare is !far loss intense and effective The Germans sank only 30 British commercial ships i'n tho ! first .six weeks of warfare or •loss than a ship a clay. Add to those actual figures the fact 'that the British merchant ma' rine includes nearly twice as many cargo vessels' as it did n World war days, and YOU have the focus on Germanv's .submarine blockade. it is almost non-existent—so far | But what about those batUo- Iships tho Germans have sent ;to Davey Jones' locker? i There, says your naval ox; pert, is tho key to his deduction that Hitler has boon usiiv the submarine more for its headline value than for actual i da mage. i Outdated Ships I The British admit the loss of an airplane carrier and a battleship—the Courageous and the Royal Oak. These ships were designed or built in World war days. and their hulls incorporated none of tho strictly modern "air and oil" chambers streamlined into naval hulls as standard antisubmarine protection. These air and oil chambers are necessary defense against torpedoes, because it is a law of physics that water is non- compressible, and therefore transmits the shock of explosives in full force until that shock reaches a compressible substance. Thus the air and oil chambers designed within the hull of modern warships absorb the shock that otherwise would reach the inner skin of the ship and shatter it Since neither the Royal Oak nor tho Courageous had in its original design the maximum •protection of air and oil chambers, the British tacked bulges or blisters on the outside of those ships—but these blisters couldn't have the strength inherent in original designing Together the two of these ships cost only $30,000,000 including their after-thought During the blockade in the United States Civil war, southern newspapers were printed on iwallpaper. much less than modern battleship. This all means that both the Royal Oak and tho Courageous were obviously more vulnerable to torpedoes' than new warships, and, since tho information i.s generally known among naval men. these floating" fortresses were almost an Invitation tu submarines. Furthermore, if submarines could got close enough to sink them,' a uroat wave :J f sensational headlines would inevitably follow in the Allied—and neutral press. What It Costs Therefore, asks your naval expert, were Hitler and the German naval command more interested 'in big headlines and the prestige those headlines give them, than they wore in actual damage to British transport lines, or to the newer bnokbonos of the British fleet? -The answer, .judging "from the farts available up to now, would seem t» bo yes. or else submarine warfare 'has utterly tailed so far i n 1939. Also in- Ihienciim that an answer toward the affirmative, is the courtesy of sub captains Hist belure the Hitler peace offensive. It would seem tho German submarine campaign were intended to show the British public what it was capable of doing to British shipping, rather than actual damage". Furthermore, .'headlines reverberating through the world press, adding luster to German arms, are costing Hitler only about $10,000 per reverberation That's the cost of a torpedo. And as naval experts size it up. that's a pretty good bargain in morale-jbuilding headlines from the German point of view. Tho one fly in the ointment is the loss of Gorman submarines. If British reports of three German sub sinkings in one day are indicative of the ! actual situation, then the headline bargain is not so good , as it looks at first glance. But no naval expert would subscribe to the suggestion that jthc Germans are losing three submarines every day. .Announce Opening i of Alignment Shop '• Announcement, was made to- ' ; day of the installation of a Bear ! alignment system at G04 East iDowland street in Ludington. | The equipment, owned by Dick i Pehr.sqn. had been in use at Scottville for .some time and was brought io the new location during the past few days where it is now in use. In addition to wheel alignment, the shop is equipped for body bumping and painting on all cars and all other mechanical adjustments and repairs. Sound ot artillery fire which is clearly audible 200 miles away, often cannot be heard 100 miles away.

Over one hundred couples danced amid surroundings of straw and corn .shocks to the music of "Butch" Mcny and lm orchestra.
