Before a crowd of forty-seven

scored in the first inning, but
St. Louis scored twice in the

once in the fifth with a homer
by Medwick, left fielder, and
four runs in the sixth to bring
their total to eight. The De
troit Tigers scored but three
runs in the entire game, their
scoring being so "well scattered
that they never threatened after
the first part of the game. Diz
zy Dean pitched the entire game
for St. Louis. The Tigers start
ed with Crowder, relieved him
in the sixth with Marbury, who
was relieved in the same inn
ing by Hogshead. He finished
the game for the Tigers. Two

SPEAKS fO THE
Speaks On Supreme Court
And Its Fundamentals, De
fending: The Court System
Associate Justice Willis J. Brog
den of Durham and Raleigh, for
nine years a member of the Su
preme Court of North Carolina,
spoke to the Kiwanis Club and it's
guests on Monday night in the reg
ular meeting of the club. Judge j
Brogden picked up the historical 1
thread in 1776 and traced the devel
opment of the Supreme Court from
that time until the organization of
the court as it now stands under
the constitution of 1868. He defend
ed, where so many people have be
rated, the court system in our state
and nation. Judge Brogden point- |
ed out that there was no more di- i
rect way for a man to get Justice I
than to go into the courts for an
alleged wrong and seek retribution
At the hands of the courts "that
stand guard at his fireside at night,
that surround his liberty and his
property." His remarks, sprinkled
with his original wit and humor
throughout, were listened to with
Close attention and were enjoyed
by his hearers. In concluding his
remarks Judge Brogden urged the
Kiwanians and others who were
present, to base their opinions of
statecraft arid affairs of govern
ment, not on hearsay or prejudice,
but on profound thought and study.
The ladies of the Methodist church
served an excellent chicken dinner
in the basement of the church.
Guests for the evening were: Jus
tice Brogden, B. T. Bumbardner, Mr.
Davis of Durham, Dr. A. P. Nichols,
John Tucker of Yanoeyville, F. O.

Washington, Oct. 2.?In an at

and Hugh S. Johnson, its retiring
administrator, the new governors of
the Blue Eagle today began their
task of reshaping Its control over
The industrial recovery board,
newly-named by the President, was
closeted in executive session four
hours with Richberg, director of the
policy shaping committee. The con

Then the-entire group paid their
respects to Johnson, builder of the
industrial code structure. It was the

new board, spoke for it at the end
of a day's session.
"We have been outlining for our

"We took no action. These discus

it, has long been recognized a ma

board was reported to be fully
aware of this problem and to plan
a_ painstaking ^survey of existing
compliance machinery with an eye
to a general tightening up.
What such action might involve in
the way of code amendments was '
not immediately evident. In any
event, the recovery governors were
determined on an "evolutionary"
approach to their work .
As To Salaries.
Even the question of salaries for
board members remained to be set

personally boosted his pay in, mid
