{ - --. soci r ess)
BALTIMORE, Mar. 10. - Joseph
PotterCott fi, who as under-secre-
tary of state for nearly two years,
gained a reputation for frank and
direct diplomatic methods, died
late today at John Hopkins hos-
pital, where he had undergone two
major operations in the last six
weeks.
Death came at 5:10 o'clock, afteri
the administration of 'oxygen had
failed to prolong his life. At his1
bedside were his wife and daughter,
Isabel, and his New York law part-
ner, Georges Franklin.
Earlier in the day, Dr. Joey T.
Boone, the White House physician,
was a caller, and last night Secre-
tary of State Henry L. Stimson, in-
formed that his colleague was
dying, visited him.
Mr. Cotton was 55 years old. He,
underwent an operation for spinall
infection on Jan. 21 and on Feb. 165
his right eye was removed.
The under-secretary' bore the
chief burden of the state depart-'
ment's work during the absence of2
Secretary Stimson at the London
naval conference and his health
failed last summer. In the fall he
took a two months leave of absence,
and had his tonsils removed, but
this failed to restore him and he{
became a patient of Dr. Walter E.
Dandy, the brain specialist, at
John Hopkins, early this year. .

DEFENSE DELAYS TRIAL
Asks Opportunity to Study Text
of Radio Talks to be Used
as State's Evidence.
'(y Assocrated Press)
DETROIT, March 10.-A woman,
a -taxi driver and a truck driver
took the stand in recorder's court,
today to weld together a chain of'
incidents which they said happened
at about the time Gerald E. Buck-
s ley was shot to death in the La-
Salle hotel July 23.
Had Triple Significance.
Today's testimony at the trial of
Ted Pizzino, Joe Bommarito, and
I Angelo Livecchi, the three men in-
dicted for the slaying, had a three-
fold significance for the state's
case. It mentioned Livecchi as the
man seen to emerge from the Ade-
laide street entrance of the hotel
and beckoned to "a group of men
standing nearby just before the
shooting. It mentioned Joe Bom-
marito as one of the men in this
group and it brought out the facts
that an automobile was stalled in
Woodward avenue in such a way
I as to block traffic just after the
slaying.
The day's testimony also men-
tioned a small automobile which!
was seen to shoot out of Adelaide
street into Woodward avenue soon
after the shooting stopped. The
trial was adjourned until Friday
morning to give the defense oppor-
tunity to study Buckley's radio ad-
dresses which the state intends to.
offer in evidence.
State's Witncsss Testify.
Two of the state's list of "eye
witnesses" appeared today. They
were Gus Reno, a taxi driver, and
Curtis Hook, a driver of a Detroit
watching Livecchi summon three
men into the LaSalle hotel from the
Adelaide street entrance just be-
fore the shooting occurred. Asked
if he could identify any of these

three men, Reno stepped from thel

exploration have completed their
work.
"There is a vast unexplored area
on theotheraside of the South Pole
about which nobody knows," he
said. "It may be another continent,
and I am eager to find out."
Airplanes would be the mode of
travel best suited to the trip, he
said.

(B Asociated Press)
LANSING, Mar. 10.-A tech-
nical error was discovered today
in the capital punishment act
signed by Governor Wilber M.
Brucker which brought threats of
litigation by opponents of the
death penalty, in an effort to keep
the question off the spring elec-
tion ballots.
Governor Brucker, in effect,
signed an enrolled act that was
not passed by the legislature.' The
act provided that a person con-
victed of murder be taken to Jack-
son by the state police to await a
Sreview of his conviction by the su-
preme court. As it passed the legis-
lature the bill provided that the
sheriff transport the condemned
person to the prison.
Corrected Proof Rushed.
The clerical force of the senate
was busy tonight rushing a cor-
rected proof to the printer for a
new act which will be placed be-
fore the governor for his signature.
The action was taken on the ad-
vice of Emerson R. Boyles, deputy
attorney general, who recommend-
ed that the governor sign a cor-
rected act and that the secretary
of state certify the amended docu-
rne nt to the county clerks'of the
state.
lBric er i expected to sign the
new bill Wednesday mornin. The
technical charge, it was pointed
out, has no bearing on the intent
of the act. Governor Brucker did
not have the legislative bill before
him for comparison when he signed
the act.
Petition May be Filed.
While the staff of Fred I. Chase,
secretary of the senate, was rush-
ing through a new enrolled act to
the governor, opponents of the
death penalty were planning an
attack on the proposed procedure.
Representative Vincent P. Dacey, of
Detroit, who opposed the capital
punishment bill in the legislature,
said petition may be filed in the
courts to restrain the secretary of
,sate or county clerks from placing
the question on the ballots. He
pointed out that the department of
state cannot possibly certify the
act 30 days before the election, as
required by the general statute.
Friends of the measure, however,
claim the referendum clause which
provides that the question be voted
on at the Apr. 6 election, is suffi-
cient within itself for placement
on the ballot.
Harry Riseman Sees
Communistic Nation
"Community ownership of prop-
erty in America must come, wheth-
it comes by revolution or by peace-
ful re-organization," said Harry
-Riseman, chairman of the Old Age
Pension league, in a lecture last
night.
Riseman pointed out the disad-
v-,ntages of the laboring classes
caused by "low wages, old age, and
unemployment," and contrasted the
theories of socialism and commun-

sion was held,
