Cost Of Living
Hurts U. S. Labor
LANSING, July 31.-(/)-The
State Emergency Relief Admin-
istration said today the rising
cost of living is cutting deeply
into pay increases labor receives
in Michigan.
A bulletin released today said
a survey of conditions last May
disclosed that although payrolls
were $1,189,078 larger than in
the previous month, "increases
in the cost of the various items
of the wage earner's budget ef-
fected a reduction of 1 per cent
in real wages."
No Townsend Candidate
In Third District
BATTLE CREEK, July 31.-(P)
-The Townsend Clubs' advisory
board decided today to endorse
no candidate in the third con-
gressional district until after the
September primary.
Rep. Verner W. Main won the
Republican nomination and was
elected last year, with support of
the Townsend Clubs, but he an-
nounced recently that he was
waiving such endorsement this
year. He said he could not con-
scientiously champion the de-
mand of the Townsend organi-
zation for a $200 monthly pen-
sion, but that he would continue
to support the McGroarty Bill,
which incorporates part of the
Townsend Pension Plan.

him through nearly 40 counties in the
past six weeks, he stated, and Bruck-

83 counties in the state, with complete
organization of the state hoped for
by tonight. "The elements indicate
an old-fashioned Republican land-

The committee named to campaign
for him in this county will be headed
by Roscoe Bonisteel, of Ann Arbor.

Hurricane Hits
Gulf Of Mexico,

Residents, Vacationists
Rush ToSafety
PENSACOLA, Fla., July 31. - (P) -
A midsummer hurricane whirled out
of the Gulf of Mexico across a sparse-
ly settled area 40 miles east of here
today, inflicting heavy damage on
some coastal property and leaving
three vessels unaccounted for.
Forewarned, residents and vaca-
tionists moved to safety from exposed
resort centers and no loss of life was
reported immediately from the winds
which reached as high as '100 miles
an hour. Pensacola escaped dam-
Ships unreported were the two-
masted fishing smack Bob, carrying
a crew of six; the steamer Tarpon
with a crew of 15 bound from Apala-
chicola to Panama City; and the 38-
foot auxiliary schooner Ketchum of
St. Petersburg.
Blow Strikes At Dawn
While the coast guard sought to
ascertain their whereabouts, divi-
sional headquarters at Jacksonville
suggested the ships might have put
in at isolated points to escape the
The blow, striking first about dawn,
was the second appearance of a trop-
ical hurricane which started in the
Caribbean, swept across the southern
tip of the state Tuesday night, and
recurved with increasing intensity in
the Gulf.
Two deaths were attributed to the
first appearance of the storm. A
lineman was electrocuted and a deck-
hand drowned.
The resort colonies of Fort Walton
and Valparaiso bore the brunt of the
storm felt along a 75-mile stretch
of the coast today. Winds of 85 miles
an hour struck Fort Walton and an
army radio station said at Valparaiso
the maximum velocity was 90 to 100
miles an hour there.
Fort Walton's wharves were car-
ried away by tides eight feet above
,normal. More than 2,000 persons,
including many on vacation, deserted
the community.
Gunnery Base Damaged
The United States gunnery base at
Valparaiso was badly damaged and
the Pensacola-Valparaiso highway
was under water in places. Cotton,

The banana boat Malva from Hon-

Hooded Leoion
Plot To Disease
Jews Revealed
Printer Tells Suggestion
Made To Put Typhoid
Germs In Jews' Milk
DETROIT, July 31.-UP)-An ab-
ortive plot to put typhoid germs in
milk delivered to Jews was charged to
the Black Legion today while a de-
fendant told-in another case-how
a black snake whip cracked -"per-
haps a dozen times" on the back of a
rebellious member.
Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea
made public the formal, statement of
William Guthrie, a Black Legion
printer, who accused -a high-ranking
Legion officer an another man-a
"chemist"-of approaching him nine
months ago with plans for breedingl
germs in Guthrie's house.
Guthrie, who said the plot never
got beyond the scheming stage, re-
ported the men talked of sending in-
fected milk and cottage cheese into
districts "most thickly populated
with their enemies."
"Did they name any particular
class of people?" Assistant Prosecutor'
William E. Dowling asked.
"They said the Jews," Guthrie re-
Guthrie's story gave a savage twist

he Great Extortion
Is A Iell Of A Flop
OMAHA, Neb., July 31.-(R')-R. A.
Alt, Chief of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation here, said Sterling Wal-
rod Powell, 16-year-old farm boy
arrested at his home one mile south
of Grant, Neb., late today, has con-
fessed to writing an extortion letter
asking $25,000 of George F. Temple,
father of Shirley Temple, juvenile
screen actress.
Federal officials said that the let-
ter, which the youth admitted writ-
ing, read:
"Unless $25,000 is dropped from an
airplane near Grant, Neb., on May
15, the life of Shirley Temple will be
Agents quoted George Temple, the
little acrtess' father, as saying the
letter apparently was lost in her fan
mail and was not opened until May
18, three days after the deadline set
in the letter.
Mr. and Mrs. Temple and their
famous daughter are now touring the
to the Black Legion investigation,
which continued today while six men
heard testimony against them in
court on charges of abducting and
flogging Robert Penland-the first
Black Legion trial.
How Penland was lashed for not
attending meetings was described in
court--by a defendant-although the
alleged victim himself has denied he
was whipped.
