There was talk of wedding bells among friends of Jack Dempsey
and Hannah Williams, Broadway musical comedy actress. The former
heavyweight champion was reported to have told friends he and Miss
Williams will be married in Reno, Nev., soon. Dempsey formerly was
married to Estelle Taylor, film actress, and Miss Williams is the for-
mer wife of Roger Wolfe Kahn, sore of Otto Kahn, New York banker.

,Asking no quarteer and giving

determined that this state shall be
the first on .record against repeal
Xepeaists, pressing their cause witl
equal vigor, have made the doctrine
of states' rights an issue. Alabama
dpclined to legalize beer.
Dr.. L. E. Barton, chairman of the
executive committeee of the Asso-
ction Against Repeal of the Eight-
eenth Amendment, says: "We can
win Alabama in a knockdown and
drag out fight. It will be no kid glove
affair, We ask no quarter and will
give none.,.
Col. Alfred Tunstall, chief of the
repealists, says, "In voting for re-
peal, Alabama will say to all states
that there will be no interference in
the future with their own decisions
regarding internal problems. A vote
against repeal is a vote against
President Roosevelt and the Demo-
cratic national platform."
In Arkansas the campaign has
been waged quietly, but last-minute
speaking tours are planned. Prohi-
bition leaders have hinted that they

the machinery set u for voting on
the question. Repealists are working

Both Sides Claim Tennessee
There is little to indicate how
'ennessee will vote, except that it
legalized 3.2 beer. Dr. James E.
clarke, vice-chairman of the United
Prohibition Forces of Tennessee,
Says,. "We have every reason to be-
ieve that Tennessee will go dry by
" large majority." Chairman E. L.
lcNeilly, of the repeal campaign,
predicts a majority of 50,000.
Determined that Oregon shall be
one of the first states to refuse to
fall in line with the repeal move-
ment, Methodist Episcopal leaders
have launched an attack which they
liope will result in a preponderance
of dry votes at the election.
Eight repeal organizations, on the
Cther hand, have issued. repeated
'predictions that Oregon will vote to
repeal the amendment as well as
the state prohibition laws. Besides
electing 116 delegates to the consti-
t itional convention on national pro-
Aibition, Oregonians will hold a di-
rAct plebescite on repeal or retention
df the amendment, and on the state
prohibition laws.-
In the general election last No-
vember Oregon voted 206,619 to 138,-
775 to repeal .the state bone-dry en-
f ceinent act. The state constitu-
tional provisions against liquor re-
ihained in effect, however, and re-
deal or retention of these laws will
le decided Friday.
At the annual June conference of
tile Methodist Episcopal Church in
Oregon, the laity was adviseed to
"get out and ring door bells" and
otherwise work to insure retention
of the Eighteenth Amendment.
The last Oregon legislature re-
f sed to entertain a proposal to
Provide for some form of liquor reg-
ulations in event of Federal repeal,

beer was imminent.at that time, re-

Chinese Again
Endangered By
Flood, Famine
SHANGHAI, July 15.-VP)-The
specter of famine and flood confronts
millions of Chinese within the Yel-
low River valley in North China.
"China's -sorrow," as the mighty
stream is called, has been flooding
during the last month and today
had reached an eyen greater volume,
bringing the danger of disaster closer.
Reports from communities on the
headwaters of the river, whih is
also known as the Hwang, or Hwang
Ho, say rains are continuing, causing
:ears of a further rise.
From major points on the Yellow
some dispatches saying the stream
.s over-running its dikes in scores
Af places and is flooding isolated
areas. Many thousands already have
een made homeless.
At Tsinan, a city of 400,000, the
capital of Shantung province, the
river is said to have reached the
top of the dikes in the vicinity, en-.
.iangering the city.
The Shantung. provincial govern
ment is usig thousands of coolie$
and soldiers to strengthen the levees,
while a similar race against time is
in progress in Honan in an effort
to stave off tragedy if the Yellow
continues to rise.
Meanwhile, the Yangtze, which a
fortnight ago threatened to repeat
its disastrous flood of 1931 and then
:eceded again, is rising once more
is a result of heavy rains at its
Renewed fears were thereby caused
imong residents in the numerous
:ities, towns, and farming communi-
;ies comprising "China's granary."
Seven thousand miles of dikes were
wuilt in 1931, but even these are
again imperilled.
(The Yangtze is 3,400 miles long,
and the Yellow is 2,600 miles. These
lengths compare with those of the
CQlrado river, 1,360Q miles; Amazon,

Pan To6llooi
GoVeror ace
LANSING, July 15.-()-Another
boom for Alex J. Groesbeck for gov-
ernor is under way.
Although it is almost a year be-
fore the 1934 campaign will start,
friends of the former governor are
busy proclaiming him as the hope
of the Republican party. His recent
activity in connection with the De-
t r o it banking situation zoomed
Groesbeck's name into prminence.
Old political allies have been quick
to take advantage of the situation.
Elton R. Eaton, secretary to
Groesbeck while he was governor,
and now a newspaper pubisher in
Plymouth, contends there should be
a draft movement. He believes the
Republican party should select a
candidate rather than be content
with a cluttered field of selfstarters.
Thus he thinks the Republicans, if
they wish to gain ascendancy again,
should not ask Groesbeck to "run"
but should unite behind him in a
draft demand.
Whether Groesbeck will be a can-
didate remains to be seen. After his
defeat in the primary four years
ago he indicted he would be a. can-
didate sometime again. There has
been talk Groesbeck might run for
the United States senate, but geo-
graphically next year is the off-year

for a Detroit candidate. Senator Ar-
thur H. Vandenberg will be up for re-
election. it has come to be a tradi-
tion that one, of the two senators
be from outstate and one .from De-
troit. Vendenberg's home is in Grand
Rapids. Senator James Couzens
lives in Detroit.
Another complication in the Groes-
beck boom is that friends of Frank
D. Fitzgerald, secretary of state,
have been urging him to run. Many
of Groesbeck's supporters are friend-
ly to Fitzgerald. There is little like-
lihood both would run. It is believed
Groesbeck a n d Fitzgerald would
reach an agreement before eitherI
makes a decision.I
Should Groesbeck enter the con-
test the probability exists that Fitz-.
gerald would again be a candidate
for secretary of state and that his
organization would be behind the
former governor. Senator Adolph A.
Heidkamp of Lake Linden has been
spoken of as a possible Republican
candidate for lieutenant governor.

During the past three years 11
states have increased punishment

Mississippi, Texas, Florida and

there is no opportunity for parole if

Great Britain
Will Meet U S.
in Cup Finals
WIMBLEDON, Eng.,. July 15.-(AP)
-Great Britain qualified today to
meet the United States in the inter-
zone Davis cup final round at Par-
is next week as Henry W. (Munny)
Austin defeated Vivian McGrath, of
Australia, 6-4, 7-5, 6-3, in the de-
ciding singles match of the Europ-
ean zone final play.
Austin's swepping straight set vic-
tory gave Great Britain the neces-
sary three matches in the five match
series and left the closing engage-
ment of the day, the final singles
encounter between Jack Crawford,
Australia's new Wimbledon king, and
Fred Perry, British ace, without pos-
sible bearing on the final result.
Great Britain divided the singles
of the opening day as Perry beat
McGrath after Crawford had trounc-
ed Austin, and took a 2 to 1 lead
yesterday' when her doubles pair,
Perry and George Patrick Hughes,
beat the young Anzacs, Adrian Quist
and Don Turnbull.

that seem to indicate a symp.athetic niz

be remembered lawyers explain, that
these times are held to be a national
emergency, and hence, times of

Some prophecy is seen by observ-
ers in the Appalachian coal case, for
one. This decision was handed down
last March with an eight-to-one vote
in a case that in some respects may
be similar to possible tests arising
out of the industrial codes in process
of formation.
Some 137 producers of bituminous
coal had created a single selling
agency which was termed a violation
of the Sherman Act. But an investi-
gation showed that the agency had
not eliminated competition.
"It is necessary to consider the
economic conditions peculiar to the
coal industry," said Chief Justice
Charles Evans Hughes, in delivering
the opinion. "A co-operative enter-

Many a "sale" made by advertising has gone
to a competitor because the purchaser did not
know where to buy the advertised brand. Tele-
phone men evolved a plan to make it easy to find.
They created a "Where to Buy It" service in
the classified telephone directory. There-beneath
the advertised trade marks -Buick, Goodrich,
RCA Victor, General Electric and many others
now list authorized local dealers. Thus telephone
men complete the chain between advertiser and
consumer -increase the effectiveness of advertis-
ing - help manufacturers and dealers to increase
sales - help consumers to get what they want!
Because they apply vision to subscribers' prob-
lems, Bell System men continually increase the
