Law Strikies At
Kidnapers, But
Two Still Held
Missouri To Hang McGee
And Plans To Ask Same
PeN~alty For Brother
(By Associated Press)
The law pointed today of a ten-
strike against kidnaping-the first
death sentence in an abduction case
-but two victims of kidnapers still
were missing, with aiuthorities ap-
parently at a dead end.
Three weeks ago today the young
National Guard lieutenant, John
J. O'Connell, Jr., of Albany, N. Y.,
was abducted. He is still unaccount-
ed for. The other man still unre-
turned is Charles F. Urschel, wealthy
Oklahoma City oil man. His wife
was reported today near collapse,
all efforts at negotiation for his re-
lease having been unsuccessful.
The ransom demand in the case
of O'Connell was originally a quar-
ter of a million dollars. Subsequent
negotiations may have reduced it,
but members of the young man's
family have not been communicative,
and authorities confess themselves
On the heels of the imposition of
the death sentence upon Walter Mc-
Gee for the kidnaping of Mary Mc-
Elroy in Kansas City, the prosecu-
tion announced it would seek the
same extreme penalty for McGees
brother, George, and for Clarence
Click, held in the same kidnaping
Federal agencies have shown in-
creasing energy in tlje pursuit of kid-
napers. At Leominster, Mass., today
postal inspectors and men from the
district attorney's office inquired in-
to threats to kidnap executives of the
Wachusett shirt factory and mem-
bers of their families. The writers
of the letters demanded a wage in-
crease for employes. Police have been
Joseph B. Geenan, assistant United
States attorney general, said: "Gang-.:
sters and kidnapers throughout the
nation may expect the full force of
the government in vigorously, per-
isteitly and relentlessly prosecut-
ingthe violation of every federal law,
and in co-operating with state au-
thorities, seeking the maximum pen-
alty in each case."
Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, U. S.
M. C., retired, urged modified mar-
tial law, which. he thought would
end kidnaping within a month. By
such a plan, he said,. "we'd soon see
the end of the rats who live on ran-
som money."
Allen Praises Work Of
U.S. Conservation Army
Few people, according to Prof.
Shirley W. Allen of the School of
Forestry and Conservation, realize
the scale upon which the Civilian
Conservation Corps has been organ-
ized, moved, and equipped, nor the
strain which has been put on the
military establishment and to some
extent upon the Navy personnel.
"The increase in the productive
capacity of wild lands in Michigan,
through the work of these 11,000 men
under skilled supervision, is almost
inconceivable," Professor Allen de-
clares, "and all of this is over and
above the rehabilitation of the men
themselves, for whom the movement
was largely conceived," he continued.
The morale of the men and the total
volume of work accomplished is high,
he states.

HOLLYWOOD, July 28.-OP)-The
second strike in the history of Holly-
wood's movie making was shuttled to
New. York City today for settlement.
Meanwhile a half dozen film stars
were reported by Harold V. Smith,
head of the, sound men's local, to be
refusing tokwork with technicians
hired to take the place of men who.
walked off the job at the start of the
week following a disagreeement over
wages and hours of work.
He listed Mae West, the Marx
brothers, Nancy Carroll, and John
Stahl as among players and produc-
ers refusing to work with the non-
union technical men. Ifis report was
without confirmation from those he
named or from the studios.
Patrick Casey, labor representative
of, the producers, announced he had
told Richard J. Green, representative
of the International Allianc'e of The-
ater Stage Employees, the whole mat-

signed the code.
The Ford Motor Co. has not signed.
The Ford company is not a member
of the N. A. C. C. and was not rep-
resented at the meetings this week
of the N. A. C. C. directors. The com-
pany was, however, represented at
the preliminary meetings.
Gen. Hugh S. Johnson, national
recovery administitor, who was
present when the code was agreed
to, said he had talked with Edsel B.
Ford on the telephone with respect
to the code, but had not talked with
Henry Ford. He said the Fords had
not signed, but had not refused to
Officials of the Ford Motor Co. said
there would be no statement from
the company "until we have seen the
full code."
The Ford company represents 24
per cent of the entire industry. The
06 per cent of the N. A. C.C. mem-
bership, therefore, represents 72.96
per cent of the entire industry which
has agreed to the cde. .
Gen. Johnson, who arrived here
Thursday afternoon by airplane from
Washington, conferred this morning
with Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., president of
General Motors Corp., and Alvan
Macauley, president of the N. A.C. C.
and of the Packard Motor Car Co., in
Sloan's office in the General Motors
Later he appeared before the board
of directors of the N. A. C. C., leavming
that meeting at 11:30 a.m. to permit
the directors to discuss the code.
He was called back 45 minutese
later. He emerged almost immedi-
ately with a big file of papers under
his arm.e
"Did you get a code?" he was
"Sure we got a code," he replied.]
"That's what I came here for. Thirty-
five hours a week. That's the work-j
ing week I wanted."
Gen. Johnson left at once for his1
quarters in the Book-Cadillac Hotel.
He left for Cleveland by airplane in
"I am very happy that we got the
code through," he said.
"My only regret is that Henry Fordj
has not signed it. Up to now, every
code that has been presented to us;
has been signed 100 per cent by the
industry involvd."
Electric Power Demand,'
Production Increase 12%
Electric power demand and pro-
duction showed a 12 per cent increase1
in Michigan for June, compared with
the same month last year. Reports
from public utilities of the State to
the Utilities Information Bureau here
indicate the July demand for power
"has remained firm.
Power demand in May showed a
five per cent increase over May, 1932,
this being the first month since Oc-
tober, 1929, to show an ihcrease over
the same month in the previous year.
"The gains in production," the
bureau report said, "are due to the
increased demand for industrial

Fraud Charged
In Repeal Vote
In Tennessee
NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 28-P)---
Anti-repealists, attributing Tennes-
see's vote against the Eighteenth
Amendment to election irregularities,
have asked officers of the United
Prohibition Forces to "lay before the
proper authorities" any evidence of
fraud they may have that "those
guilty may be exposed, and, if pos-
sible, punished."
The action was directed at a mass
meeting of anti-repealists. A state-
ment of findings in reference to the
Tennessee repeal referendum of July
20, when a repeal- majority of ap-
proximately 6,000 votes was recorded,
"Without attributing to the leaders
of the iepeal movement or to the
many respected citizens who in sin-
cerity voted against the Eighteenth
Amendment any purpose or effort to
win the election by unfair or illegal
means, we are convinced neverthe-
less, from trustworthy evidence that
the majority would have been
against repeal had the provisions of
the election law been honestly com-
plied with at all polling places."

in fact expected 'to halt the rush of
the Champions of the West. But the
Wolverine steamroller started into
action at the outset, rolled over for a
touchdown, and from that time on
made it only a question of the size
of the score. The game was delayed
an hour while 200 students and work-
ingmen cleared the field of six inches
of snow, and had to be called with
15 minutes of playing. time not yet
elapsed. -Michigan had a long mar-
gin, 28 to 0, when the officials decid-
ed to call it a day.
Hammond kicked three goals after
touchdowns that day, and two field
goals. The accuracy of his toe was
displayed in booting one of the field
goals, the position being so far
toward the side of the field that a
further step backward would. have
put him out of bounds. In that same
year, he made the touchdown and
kicked the goal afterward that gave
Michigan a 6 to 6 tie with Minnesota.
The result made both teams claim-
ants to the Western Conference
As has been the case with many
stars of football who have known
nothing less than victory, Hammond
finished his career in defeat. It was
that Chicago game in 1905, won by
the Maroons Under Stagg, 2-0. Mich-
igan had run up 495 points, and held
its opponents scoreless duxrng all the
preceding games of the season.

TOKIO, July 28.-(/P) - Japanese
consuls in Foochow and other parts
of China informed the foreign office
today of various rumors that Ameri-
cans are seeking a foothold in Fu-
kien, a maritime province in south-
east China proper.
A foreign office spokesman said the
consuls are investigating the reports
especially because "Japan is very
sensitive" regarding the possibility of,
foreign influence being established in
Fukien, opposite Japan's colony of
Formosa, which might be menaced
He added that his office placed
little 'credence in the rumors and

Vernacular newspapers published
assertions that the United States
navy made a deal to acquire a naval
base at Tungshan island, and it was
rumored that American capitalists
are planning to invest in Fukien rail-

undertook in Sino-Japanese treaties
in 1895 and 1905 never to give up
any portion of the Fukien coast to a
third power.

threats against Japan and numerous

NEW YORK -( )-Michael Mon-
gello, says police, would walk into a
busy office, tip his hat to the sten-
agraphers and with a "good day"
walk out. Everybody thought he was
a repair man.
Detectives found 14 typewriters in
his room. Ike said he needed the
typewriters for correspondence.

NEW YORK, July 28.-(AP)-Nine-
teen years ago today certain officials
dipped, their pens in ink and wrote
the headlines for today's newspaper.
The ink, flowing in tiny streams
on parchment, gushed to a mighty
torrent on the front pages of the
world-heralding the outbreak of the
World war.
The headlines, black as woe, told
of Austria-Hungary declaring war
on Servia on July 28, 1914, of Rus-
sia ordering a mobilization the next
day; then of the others jumping in.
Today that ink still splashes on
page one. A count shows that of
all the headlines on front pages of
New York morning dailies today 70
per cent deal with subjects which
have been traced-directly or indi-
rectly, in whole or in part, by one
savant or another-back to the
World war.
"Chicago indicts Al Capone and
23 in war on rackets." How many
times has the world been told that
the war bred lawlessness, which fost-
ered rackets?
"Gov. Lehman acts to put state
behind NRA drive." How many men
have pointed to the World war as

the cause of the severity of the de
"Spain to recognize Soviet iuw
sia." The traces of war ink on ha
are plain: Would the Czar still e o1
his throne if ink hadn't trickled ,j
his pen to parchment 19 years ago
"Kidnaper doomed to death." t
that, too, as some would contend a
result of war-spawned crime?
"O'Ryan is chosen by fusion grou
to run for mayor." That's Maj. (+n.
John F. O'Ryan of the 27th divisio,

"World economic parley end<'
Would it ever have had to be,n,
except for the World war?
Some say, that, though the fid
ing has ceased, the World war -t
goes on. Certainly the mailed ±.t
is still penning headlines, not ud
on page one, but right through t
the financial section.
"Not all of them, though. One
headline today says:
"Vast continent sank below :
eons ago."
It sank, yet life went on. Perhapm
a philosopher could draw a le c
from that.
