Representatives of the Ogden and Price chambers of commerce met with Attorney General Joseph Chez at the capitol today. Following the meeting, Chez announced that a decision had been reached to file petition for an alternative writ of mandamus with the supreme court Monday, seeking immediate of the three institutions.

Get Court The supreme court will be asked to decide whether $330,000 or $597,000 is available for the constructions. The last legislature voted the $330,000, but failed to make clear whether that amount was to be total cost of the buildings or the sum could be supplemented by federal public works administration grants. The attorney general's office had first planned to bring action involving only the two school buildings, but action expected to be taken Monday clearing a site for the tuberculosis (sanitarium will permit the third institution to be included in the action.

Wall Street Starts Wild Rumors When Roosevelt's Fever Hits 103; President Spares old WPA Elephant When Kids Plead For Her Life; Congress Bombarded By Demands For Wider Spending To Halt Slump. JAPANESE RULE SHANGHAI mi SHANGHAI, Nov. 27 (U.PJ— Japan took over all Chinese government communications facilities in greater Shanghai today and prepared, "if the necessity arose," to seize the Chinese customs.

But for the present the Japanese contented themselves with the telegraph and radio facilities and the postal system. It was not believed they would take over the cables, owned by foreign companies, but they planned to occupy Cable company offices and handle acceptance and delivery of questionable messages, a function exercised by the Chinese communications ministry. WASHINGTON President Roosevelt was a very uncomfortable man at the height of his recent illness. One day he had a 103 deg. fever.

His sickness and pain were caused by an ulcerated lower molar which had been troubling him for several years. When finally it went on a rampage. Roosevelt's jaw and face swelled like a balloon, and the poison from the pus sac brought on high fever and upset stomach. This condition lasted only a short time, although, because of the extreme sensitiveness of his law, he could not eat and was on a liquid diet for a week. Afterwards Roosevelt laughingly remarked that thanks to his illness he had undergone a much-needed reducing course.

One reason for the delay in his recovery was the pronounced inflammation of his jaw which prevented immediate extraction of the trouble-making tooth. His doctors had to treat the inflammation before the molar could be yanked. Afterwards the abcess required draining and dressing several times a day. This, combined with his fever and inability to wear a collar, made the medicos advise cancellation of the Warm Springs trip. I WILD RUMORS After Roosevelt had been in bed several days, Washington newsmen began to be bombarded with wild, out-of-town stories regarding his condition.

Most of the rumors emanated from Wall Street. One, widely circulated in brokerage offices, claimed the president had suffered a paralytic stroke similar to that which felled Wilson. Another, also given serious credence, was that Roosevelt had died suddenly and the fact was being kept from the public. One prominent eastern correspondent was telephoned about this LONDON, Nov. 27 British government made formal representations to Japan today over Japanese threats to seize all Chinese government property and functions, particularly the customs service in greater Shanghai.

Sir Robert Craigie, British ambassador to Japan, was told to leave the Japanese government "in no doubt whatever that his majesty's government claims the right to be consulted on any arrangements concerning the Chinese customs." HAMMOND CALLS FOR FUND FIGHT SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 27 (U.PI—Chairman W. D. Hammond of the state road commission today urged civic organizations in the state interested in road construction to organize against proposed reduction of federal allocations for highway work. President Roosevelt yesterday recommended to congress that the federal appropriations be cut from $280,000,000 to $80,000,000 or $90,000,000 for the next fiscal year.

Hammond said that Utah received from the federal government for the 1938 fiscal year $2,338,000 for roads and grade crossing elimination projects. "This is approximately 71 per cent of all money available in the state," he said. "If federal funds are cut off, the state's road construction crippled." program will be (Continued on Page Six) be made. Mr. and Mrs.
