IN CLEVELAND SEEN
Ohio City Favored over Chicago;
Date of Selection Advanced
to Early December.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3.-(P)-Re-
pubUian leaders are considering
advancing to early in December,
before congress meets, the selection
of the city wher the party's 1932
presidential candidate will be chos-
Many bids are in prospect for
the convention but the early spec-
ulation has narrowed the contest
to one between Cleveland and
Chicago. The odds seem to favor
the Ohio city, where Calvin Cool-
idge was nominated in 1924.
Senator Fess of Ohio, chairman
of the Republican national com-
mittee, will call it together to se-
lect the site. He is conferring now
with members of the executive
committee on the date.
Because of his duties in the sen-
ate, the chairman is inclined to
favor the earlier meeting date.
Congress reconvenes Dec. 7.
While there have been reports of
a reorganization of the committee
at the December session, Senator
Fess is ready to carry on as chair-
man until the national convention

LANSING, Oct. 3.-( P)--Petitions,
seeking to place Alex J. Groesbeck
in the field for the Republican
nomination for governor in 1932
are in circulation in Lansing. Ac-
cording to unofficial reports they

DEATH OF LIPTON
World's Finest Loser' Receives
Tribute of Britons; His
-ails to Identify 1
LONDON, Oct. 3.-(1)-The death
Friday of Sir Thomas Lipton, who
was the "world's finest loser" as a
yachtsman, was mourned today by
Britons from the exclusive confines
of the Royal Yacht squadron to the
slums of his native Glasgow.
As plans for his funeral went for-
ward, there was much speculation
as to the size of his estate and who
would inherit it. He never married
and was the last of his family.
The old rumor that he had set
aside a large sum years ago to be
used in carrying on the assaplts
against the American cup was re-
juvenated but it was too early for
The reports were current that
several charitable institutions would
benefit by his will but they appar-
ently were based on remembrances
of his philanthropic disposition and
his gift of nearly 200,000 pounds to
the poor of London on the occasion
of Queen Victoria's jubilee.
He had been a liberal supporter
of charities ever since.
Aitiioug~i he was reputed to be
many times a millionaire, some ob-
servers held that his estate likely
would prove less valuable than pop-
ularly surmised because of his many
gifts and the immense sums spent
! on his line of Shamrock yachts.

she said, it was because she had
previously seen pictures of them. As
Mrs. Collings shook her head nega-

shook her hand emotionally. -
A few minutes after Mrs. Collings
failed to identify the Ritchies, they

younger man for their home, locat-

The wives of the Ritchies, who,
like newspaper men, were barred
from the meeting with Mrs. Col-

room where the hearing was held.
Attorneys for the Ritchies an-

identify them and told what wend
