ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug. 15.-Gene
Sarazen, a great money player,
with his eyes focused on another
bag of gold, led a spectacular as-
sault on par over the Kreller coun-

one-shot margin in the big final
for the $10,000 St. Paul open golf
The stocky New York Italian pro-
fessional whose big club carried
away the largest cash prize in golf
history at Agua Caliente last win-
ter, went around the championship
course today with a brilliant 67, five
lusty strokes under par, which not
only netted him his scant advant-
age, but gave him a new competi-
tive record for the course.
One stroke behind him at the
end of the quarter-way junction of
the seventy-two hole medal strug-
gle was Johnny Farrel of New York,
who, like Sarazen, is a former Na-
tional open champion, and Otto

TOLEDO, O., Aug. 15. - A man
about 35 years old who surrendered
in Stryker, Ohio, this afternoon
signed a confession according to
authorities, that he shot and killed
Jerry Buckley, radio announcer for
station WMBC in Detroit several
weeks ago. He said he was hired to
be the entertainer's assassin.
The man alighted from a truck
on which he had "bummed" a ride
into the town and then asked where
he could find an officer of the law.
He was told that Marshall N. Far-
ber, who is also a deputy sheriff,
was at work in his auto repair shop.

An increase of over $100,000 in

this indication of a volume of re-

fact that in 1928-1929 industrial in-f
