ON SALES TAX BILL
Speaker Asserts Bill Is No
Pork Barrel' Than
Capital Thinks Chief Executive
May Take Hand in Contest
WASHINGTON, May 28. -- (/P) -
The Senate today swept nearer a
vote on the explosive sales tax issue
with the result admittedly doubtful.
While both opponents and pro-
ponents claimed to hold a slight
majority, those opposing centered
their arguments upon a demand
for President Hoover to show his
position toward the tax.
The capital heard reoprts that
the chief executive would take a
hand in the contest with a state-
m ent Monday.
The House idled over the week-
end as it will on Monday, Memorial
day, while the Senate meets, but
Speaker Garner pressed forward
witi his unemploymentrelief plan.
Snapping back with a biting
statement at President Hoover's
denunciation of his proposal in-
volving a bond issue for public
works construction, the Texas dem-
ocrat whipped details into shape
before his appearance today before
the Ways and Means committee.
In a vigorous reply to the Presi-
dent's charge that the public works
part of the Speaker's two-billion-
dollar bill was "pork barrel" legis-
lation, Gamer asserted that the
same appelation might be applied
to the Reconstruction Corporation
for which non-partisan support
was elected by Mr. Hoover.
The Texan said the tax he pro-
posed on gasoline would prevent
the work from interfering with
balancing the budget.
"President- oover's opposition to
the bill to relieve destitution, to
broaden the lending powers of the
Reconstruction Finane corpora-
tion and to create employment by
authorizing an dexpediting a public
works program was not unexpect-
"The Democrats did not expect to
receive real co-operation from the
President in any matter benefiting
the masses and those who might be
termed the middle class of Amer-
Garner said the Reconstruction
Finance corporation act, sponsored
by the President, could logically be
referred to as a "pork barrel" for
the banks, insurance companies,
railroads and financial institutions,
if the appelation were applied to
his public works program.

Maroon Nine Scores Four Runs
in First Eight Innings
Without a Hit.
WISTERT LOSES FORM
Five Michigan Errors Prominent
in Scoring; Petoskey !
Stars at Bat.r
by Roland L. Martin
Michigan's southpaw jinx, which
was temporarily lifted on Wednes-
day, again descended on the Wolv-
erines yesterday in the person of
Lefty Henshaw, star hurler of Uni-
versity of Chica'go, and the Maize
and Blue nine were forced to ac-
cept defeat, 5 to 3.
Although the Michigan hitters
were able to gather eight hits o
the delivery of the Maroon left-
hander, the hoodoo infected the
fielders with the result that five
misplays were committed, allowing
four of the five Chicago runs, just
one more than the entire total of
the Wolves. None of the four runs
were aided by hits, as Chicago did
not connect with a safe blow until
the ninth, when Tompkins allowed
two singles and one run.
Whitey Wistert, the giant right-
hander, started on the mound for
Michigan. After an auspicious start
in the first inning, in which he
struck out Buzzell, the first batter

to face him, and forced Lynch and
Page to ground out to Waterbor,
Wistert ran into considerable trou-
ble in the second, which was in
no way aided by Waterbor's two
Temple started the inning by lay-
ing down a roller to Wistert, the
pitcher tossing him out easily.
Offill hit to Waterbor and was safe
on first when Waterbor messed up
the grounder. Mahoney struck out,
but Wistert walked Johnson and
then proceded to hit Howard with
a pitched ball. With bases loaded,
Henshaw rapped to Waterbor who
again fumbled, allowing both run-
ners to score. Buzzell struck out
ending the inning.
In the next inning, Page walked
and promptly stole second. With
Lynch up, Wistert threw to second
to trap Page, but his throw was
wide and Page took third. Lynch
hit to Daniels, who threw him out
at first, Page holding third. Temple
was safe at first when Manuel
elected to try for the plate at home
on his roller, but the throw was in
the dirt at the left of the plate,
Page bringing in the third Maroon
run without a hit.
After this misplay, Wistert blew
up, walking the next two batters
before being lifted in favor of Har-
ley McNeal. Wistert took right field
for Michigan, Petoskey moving to
center, and Ferguson going to the
Temple Ends Scoring.
Johnson, the first man to face
McNeal, slapped a hard one at
Daniels, who threw him out at first,
Temple scoring the fourth Chicago
run without a single safe blow.
Howard ended the spree by rolling
out, Waterbor. to Manuel.
Michigan's scoring came in the
first and sixth innings. In the open-
ing frame, after Superko had been
struck out, Henshaw winged Water-
bor with a fast one. Braendle then
walked, after which Petoskey hit
a long triple to left center, scoring
both of the runners. Petoskey was
left when Diffley flied to left and
Daniels popped to Mahoney at
In the sixth after Daniels had
again popped to Mahoney, Wistert
slapped out a double, went to third
on a wild pitch, and scored on
Manuel's second single of the game.
McNeal sacrificed the first baseman
to second, but he was left along
with Superko who had walked,
when Waterbor rolled out to the
Maroons Hit Two.
Chicago got its only hits in the
ninth and made the fifth run
against the hurling of Tompkins,
who relieved McNeal at the start
of the eighth. Mahoney singled,
went to second on a sacrifice by
Johnson, and scored on Howard's]
single through Daniels.
Michigan had a chance to score
in its half of the ninth when Braen-
dle walked after both Superko and1
Waterbor had flied out. Petoskey

Prosecutor Postpones Hearing
on Plea of W. C. Pender,
FLEMINGTON, N.J., May 28.---(/P)
-John Hughes Curtis, of Norfolk,
will go on trial the week of June
27 for hoaxing the Lindbergis and
police seeking the kidnappers-mur-
derers of their baby son.
Prosecutor Anthony Hauck made
this announcement aLfter indict-
ments were handed down today by
the grand jury which heard the
Curtis case Thursday.
Three indictments were present-
ed to Justice Thomas Prenchard by
the foreman of the grand jury.
Because only three cases had been
considered by the jury and be-
cause of Hauck's statement as to
the trial date and further an-
nouncement by him that Curtis
would be arraigned for pleading
next Saturday, it was taken for
granted that one of the indict-
fuents named Curtis.
Hauck had planned to begin the
Curtis trial on June 13 but he post-
poned it today on receipt of a tele-
gram from W. C. Pender, who will
defend Curtis, saying he could not
be ready to proceed so early.
Curtis Begins March 1.
Curtis began imaginary negotia-
tions with the kidnappers of the
baby soon after the child was stol-
en on March 1. He obtained Col.
Lindbergh's authority to proc'eed
with his activities only after he was
vouched for by the Very Rev. H.
Sobson-Peacock and Rear Admiral
Guy Burrage, retired, prominent
Norfolk citizens long acquainted
with the Lindberghs.

on May 12 the Colonel was at sea

tion yesterday at St. Joseph's Mercy
The girl was found in the field by
a nearby resident at 10:30 o'clock
yesterday morning and was taken
to the hospital for treatment by
Officers Gene Gehringer and Harry
West. Recovering for a short time,
she told police that she had taken
poison on Friday night and had
been lying in the field for 12 hours
when she was discovered.
Although she gave the officers
her name and address, Miss Swaf-
fer refused to explain her attempt-
ed suicide. Police have been unable
to locate her parents in Vassar
Hospital authorities said the girl's
condition was grave, but that she
was resting easily.
