O'Brien Orders
Renewal Of War
On N. Y._Gangs
Rackets Must Be Driven
Out Of City, Police And
Attorneys Are Told
Another Man Killed
Recent Triple Slaying On
Broadway Arouses City
Officials To Action
NEW YORK, May 26. - (P) -
Racket bosses grown so bold that
they send their killers forth to do
battle under Broadway's bright lights
stirred New York to a new drive on
gangs today.
"Stiffened spines" was Mayor
John P. O'Brien's prescription for a
social malady that is killing scores
and draining millions from New
Yorkers' pocketbooks every year.
Calling in the police commissioner
and the five district attorneys in the
city, he demanded more backbone in
enforcing the law.
"Racketeering in all its devious
ways must be driven out," he said,
"and racketeers either expelled or
sent to Jail."
Another Man Slain
Even as he spoke, racketeers were
riding another foe to death. Unlike
Wednesday night's battle on Broad-
way, when two women and one man
fell before "bullets big enough to kill
an elephant," the latest killing oc-
curred in the byways of Brooklyn.
John Friscia, linked by police with
the rich slot-machine racket, was
done to death in an automobile, and
flung into the street. When passers-
by found his bullet-torn body, one
hand still clutched an arm-strap
ripped from the tonneau of an au-
He was described as a pal of
George Kennedy, shot to death
Tuesday night with Kitty O'Brien, a
showgirl, in a Long Island apart-
ment. Strife in the slot-machine
racket was blamed for his shooting,
too, and detectives surmisedFriscia
died because he knew who com-
mitted the murders.
Three Women Victims
Kitty O'Brien was one of the three
women who have fallen victims to
gang fights in three days. The other
two were wounded Wednesday night
when two carloads of hoodlums bat-
tled each other in a racing skirmish
down Broadway. Stray bullets hit
them as they walked along the side-
Detectives are proceeding on the
theory that fight was another epi-
sode in the enmity between Dutch
Schultz, fugitive beer boss from the
Bronx, and Waxey Gordon, who ruled
the outlaw beer trade over much of
New Jersey until Federal men caught
him recently on a charge of dodging
income taxes on a millionaire's
Hospitals are still on the watch
for two occupants of one of the cars,
which crashed against a fence after
the fight. The men, trailing blood,
escaped in a taxi, and it is believed
they will apply for medical aid for
their wounds.
Detectives from Elizabeth, N. J.,
came here to investigate a belief the
Broadway shooting was connected
with the killing at an Elizabeth
hotel of Waxey Gordon's lieutenants,
Max Hassel and Max Greenberg.
Petting, Jazz Banned
By Youths' Congress

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., May 26.
-(P-Petting, cosmetics, jazz, and
hitch-hiking have been banned by
the Young Peoples Congress of the
Seventh Day Adventist Church in
session at Collegedale near here.
The congress voted petting was to
be shunned except by those betrothed
and young people in their "teens"
were characterized as unfit for en-
gagement or marriage. Hitch-hiking
was declared un-Christian and jazz
music to have a demoralizing influ-

Delaware Will
Vote On Repeal
Question Today
Nevada Also To Decide In
State-Wide Election Of
Delegates To Meeting
WILMINGTON, Del., May 26.-(P)
-Tiny Delaware adds its voice to-
morrow to the national chorus on
the theme of Prohibition repeal.
Voters in the state's 222 precincts
will select 17 delegates-at-large to'
the convention that will meet June
24 at Dover, the state capital.
Observers said the vote in Wil-
mington, which has about half of
the state's population of 225,000.1
probably will swing the result in fa-'
vor of the wet delegates.
Wilmington is the only place in
Delaware now where the sale of 3.2
is legal, due to passage of emergency
legislation at the recent session of
the legislature. Other political sub-
divisions will decide by local option
June 6 whether they will permit the
sale of the brew.
Delaware, with the exception of
Wilmington, went dry by local option,
in 1917. Wilmington remained a hot-
bed of wet sentiment.
RENO, Nev., May 26.-(P)-Ne-
vada, so-called "wide open" state,
which ten years ago dropped its own
brief experiment with Prohibition,
will take its first step tomorrow on
the question of repeal of the Eigh-
teenth Amendment.
At precinct mass meetings, dele-
gates will be elected to county con-
ventions set for June 10. The county.
conventions in turn will elect dele-
gates to a state convention called
for Sept. 5 to ratify, or reject, the
Congressional resolution proposing
repeal of the Prohibition amendment.

Pennsylvania News
Gives Job-Hunting
Hints To Graduates
Since getting a job in such a ques-
tion of vital importance to students
who are graduating this year and to
,those who desire summer employ-
ment, the Wharton News, published
by the University of Pennsylvania,
is devoting its June issue to the
subject "Opportunities for Employ-
ment." Expert advice concerning job
.hunting will be included. The price
of the issue is 25 cents.
W. C. Graham, author of a re-
cently-published book, "How to Get
a Job During a Depression," will give
some practical hints in hunting for
work-an important part of his sys-
tem which has been successful in
over 75 per cent of the cases where
it has been tried.
Roger Babson, well-known busi-
ness writer; Dr. Emmett Welch, of
the University of Pennsylvania's in-
dustrial research department; Dr.
Arthur Morgan, president of Antioch
College; William Green, president of
the American Federation of Labor;
and Edward Filene, of the Filene
Store of Boston, are preparing other
Opportunities offered in such spe-
cific fields as aviation, the chemical
and electrical industries, public utili-
ties, and department and chain
stores, will be discussed by leaders
in those fields.

Opponent Accuses
Mitchell's Lawyer
NEW YORK, May 26.-(M)-Flar-

Mitchell's income-tax trial today as
it plodded on through a financial
Clashes between Federal Attorney
George E. Medalie, prosecuting
Mitchell on a charge of evading
$850,000 income taxes, and Max D.
Steuer, defending the former inter-
national banker, reached a climax
Medalie twice accused the defense
lawyer of falsehood.
Steuer was preparing a defense
against the government contention
that Mitchell established a tax loss
of 758,500 in 1930 by a "sham" sale
of 8,500 shares of Anaconda stock
to W. D. Thornton, president of the
Greene Cananea Copper Co.
The government charges Mitchell
repurchased the stock later and that
Thornton was merely a dummy.

National Guardsmen are shown dispersing strikers at textile mills in Manchester, N. H., where they
were called to assist police. The strike outbreaks in the mill area continued, and a short time after the
picture was taken rioting broke out anew and scores of civilians and police were injured by flying stones.

Civil Conservation Corps Will
Carry Out Improvement Work

Lake and stream improvement will
be carried out from four Civil Con-
servation Corps camps in Michigan,
using as a basis for their operations
plansrsubmitted by Carl L. Hubbs, di-
rector of the Institute of Fisheries
Research in the Museum of Zoology
The plans were prepared by the in-
stitute and submitted through the
Michigan Department of Conserva-
tion to Earl W. Tinker, divisional
United States forester in charge of
the work of the C. C. C. in Wiscon-
sin, Minnesota, and Michigan.
Two of the Michigan camps are lo-
cated in the upper peninsula. They
are that in the Escanaba River region,
and the Mackinac State Park near
Garnet. Hardwood State Forest near
Wolverine and Higgins State Park
near Grayling are the two camps in
the lower peninsula where work for
the betterment of fishing conditions
will be carried on.
Crews of 10 or 15 Civil Conserva-
tion Corps men will be used in the
work and will probably be under the
direction of trained ichthyologists.
The work will consist of building bar-
riers in the river to cause pools, of
fixing covers and shelter devices of
various types so that the fish condi-
tions in streams may be improved,
according to the institute's plan.
The barriers and deflectors used in
this work are made of logs and gal-
vanized wire and constructed inex-
It is then possible for the maxi-
mum amount of money spent on the
project to be turned over to the labor
used, according to the plan.
Detroit Police Hunt
For Youthful Gang
DETROIT, May 26.-(P)-Detroit
police today intensified their roundup
of members of the youthful "screw
driver gang," following the death of
Patrolman Barney Fox, 26, from
wounds inflicted during a gun duel
a week ago in which Nick Jeftazek,
17, was slain.
Eugene Les, 17, is held on a break-
ing and entering charge. Authorities
said he admitted numerous petty

The number, size, and attractive-
ness of the sheltered pools limits the
capacity of streams for adult fish, itI
is stated in the institute's outline,
and for this reason the work on
stream improvement will be largely
devoted to constructing devices for
creating pools.
