Spectacular Victory In

British Star
BERLIN, Aug. 6.- (A) - Gliding
flawlessly to a world record triumph
at a speed which, if sustained, would
have approximated a 4:03 mile, New
Zealand's John Edward Lovelock
raced off with the classic Olympic
1,500 meter championship today.
The curly-haired, supremely confi-
dent little medical student staggered
the world's foremost milers by un-
corking a final 300 meter sprint,.
standing' off the lion-hearted chal-
lenge of the great Glenn Cunningham
and clipping a full second off Bill
Bonthron's world record time of
3:48.8.
Has 5-Meter Lead
Lovelock actually looked over his
shoulder with a broad smile across his
face during the stretch drive that
carried him to the tape nearly five
meters ahead of the Lawrence, Kans.
star in 3:47.8.
Cunningham ran the greatest race
of his career, himself under the listed
world record as he was clocked in
3:48.4, but there was no runner in
the world who could catch nimble
Jack this afternoon, including Luigi
Beccali, Italy's dlefending champion,
ard Archie San Romani, America's
"dark horse," who ran third and
fourth.
Lovelock's dazzling triumph in the
race which -saw five foot racers fin-
ish under Beccali's former Olympic
mark of 3:51.2 thrilled an overflow
crowd of 105,000, including Chancel-
lor Hitler, and climaxed the most
spectacular day thus far of the 11th
Olympiad which fast is wiping out
the majority of previous Olympic
standards.
Ties Own Mark
America's hurdling sweep was com-
pleted by the incomparable Forrest
(Spec) Towns of Augusta, Ga., who
flashed over the high timber, equal-
ling his own new world mark of 14.1
seconds in the semi-finals and then
out-footing Great Britain's Don Fin-j
lay and Fritz Pollard, Jr., Chicago
negro, in a 14.2 seconds final.
No records were beaten in the jave-
lin final, but Germany's handsome
blond Bernardt Stoeck broke the
Scandinavian monopoly for the first
time in Olympic history, beating Fin-
nish favorites, including the world
record-holder, Matti Jarvinen, who
was handicapped by a lame back and
wound up fifth in defense of his
crown won at Los Angeles four years
ago. Stoeck's winning toss mea-
sured 71.84 meters, 235 feet 8 13/32
inches.
Japan Wins Broad Jump
The brightest and warmest day
since the competition began was fin-
ished spectacularly by Japan's Naoto
Tajima, who hopped, stepped and
jumped to a new world record of 16
meters, 52 feet 5 15/16 inches in the
triple jump. The sons of Nippon fin-
ished one-two, capturing their spe-
cialty for the third straight Olympiad
and whipping another world-record

holder, Jack Metcalfe of Australia, at
his own game. Metcalfe placed third
as Roland Romero, of Welsh, La., was
a good fifth.
World records have been achieved
in four events and equalled in, an-
other during the spree overshadowing
the superlative marks made under
vastly superior weather conditions
four years ago at Los Angeles. Thus
far Americans have contributed six
of ten new records, carried off nine
first places and spread-eagled their
rivals with a total of 153 points. Ger-
many holds down second place with
54 3/4 points.
There was never any doubt about

Testimony In
Black Legion
Hearing Ends
Judge Moynihan Promises
Decision On First Cult
Trial ThisMorning
Six Prosecuted For
FloggingMember
Defendant Alters Story As
Attorneys On Both Sides
Charge Coercion
DETROIT, Aug. 6.---(P)-A decision
tomorrow in the first Black Legion
trial--six men charged with kidnap-
ing and flogging-was promised today
by Judge Joseph A. Moynihan, who
heard testimony without a jury.
The trial ended suddenly after re-
buttal witnesses testified and attor-
neys waived final arguments before
the circuit judge as to whether there
was proof that the six men abducted
Penland, a steel worker, on Oct. 5,
1935, and lashed him in a field for not
attending Black Legion meetings.
Defendants in the trial, first since
the investigation of Black Legion ter-
rorism began two months ago, are:
Frederick A. Gulley, who repudiated
his previous testimony of a flogging;
Wilbur Robinson, self-styled "briga-.
dier-general" in the Black Legion;
Charles King, former councilman of
suburban Ecorse; Thomas F. Cox,
Harold Lawrence and Earl Angstadt
Coercion Charges Made
Charges and counter-charges of
coercion and influence upon Gulley
.were made with rebuttal witnesses.
Questioned by Prosecutor Duncan C.
McCrea, Sergt. Robert McWhirter of
suburban Ecorse police testified that
Gulley told him he was "approached"
by Bernard W. Cruse, defense attor-
ney.
McWhirter, one of the policemen
Gulley accused of plotting the Pen-
land case as a "frame up" to break
the Black Legion, testified that Gul-
ley came to him before the trial and
said:
"Can't you keep Cruse away from
me? He's at me all the time and he's
offered me any amount of money to
change my testimony."
Denies Statement
Gulley, put back on the stand by
Cruse, denied making this statement
to McWhirter. He said that when he
told Harry Colburn, an investigator
for McCrea, that he did not want to
repeat the story he told at the men's
examination a month ago, Colburn
said:
"What are you trying to do--make
a fool out of the prosecutor's office?"
Gulley said he replied: "No-I don't
want to send innocent men to jail."
Lieut. David Genaw, the other
Ecorse policeman Gulley accused ofI
urging him to "make up" a story of
Penland being flogged, testified:
"Gulley and Cox were on the spot.
They had stayed away from meetings
and on two occasions they had been
brought out to meetings. They were
afraid of being flogged themselves.
That was why they came to us with
the story."

Five Democratic Leaders

Seen As Possibility,

Farley's Interference
State Campaign

By
In

Five leaders of the Democratic
party of Michigan gathered last night
in a private room in the Union at a
time which promises to be a criticala
one for the President's party here.
The five were: Murray Van Wag-
goner, highway commissioner and
head of a powerful bloc of Democrats;
G. Donald Kennedy, deputy highway
commissioner; Theodore I. Fry, State
treasurer; George Welsh, candidate
for governor; and William A. Com-
stock, former governor.
The group had earlier this week
warned James A. Farley, Democratic
national chairman, that interference
in the State election would not be
tolerated. The meeting, apparently,
was called in response to the continu-
ation of Farley's efforts to secure the
use of the highly organized State
highway department under Van Wag-
goner in supporting Frank Murphy,
the Administration's candidate for
governor.
The meeting lasted from 10 p.m.
until early morning and had not been
announced in advance.
Because of the possible split in the
ranks of the Democrats and the ap-
parently growing strength of Welsh,
it was said by Farley that President
Roosevelt might come to Michigan in
the course of his first campaign
swing around the country. Michigan
Democratic leaders are to be sum-
moned to Washington for a confer-
ence shortly, it had been planned.
Murphy became a candidate for
governor at the request of the Ad-
ministration. He is on leave from his
duties as High Commissioner of the
Philippines.
Detroit Rookie
Pitches Tigers
To 9-0_Victory
Wade Shuts Out Cleveland
To Win His First Major
League Contest
DETROIT, Aug. 6.-(P)-Rookie
Jake Wade all but pitched the Cleve-
land Indians out of second place in
the American League today, holding
them to seven hits as the Tigers
clubbed out a 9 to 0 victory-their
third in the four-game series.
The Tigers fired a 16-hit barrage
on Willis Hudlin and George Uhle,
featured by Goose Goslin's 18th hom-
er and Marvin Owen's eighth, to give
Wade his first victory since the De-
troiters recalled him from the Inter-
national League.
Hudlin, who gave way to Uhle at
the start of a five-run Tiger spree in
the eighth, was charged with the set-
back.
Allows 7 Hits
Wade allowed only seven hits. In
i sharp contrast to his first game as a
Tiger Sunday, when he issued nine
passes, he walked only two men to-
day.
Goslin and Gerald Walker led the
Tiger attack. Walter got a double
and two singles out of five times at
bat. Goslin got two singles in addi-
tion to his circuit clout out of four
times. Al Simmons, Jack Burns and
Owen got two out of five.
Detroit did all of its scoring in
three big innings. They started off
with two in the third. With one out,
Burns was safe when Trosky fumbled
h's grounder. Gehringer grounded
but Goslin walked and Simmons
scored Burns with a single. Owen
beat out a slow roller, Goslin scoring.
Gehringer Doubles
The next brace of runs came in
the seventh when Gehringer doubled
and Goslin hit for the circuit against
the screen in front of the upper right
field bleachers. Although the ball
bounced back into the playing field, it
was a homer under the rules.

2,000 Rebels Reported
Captured By Loyalists
At Cadizj
Madrid Prepares
For 2-Month Siege
Four German Citizens Are
Reported Executed At
Barcelona
MADRID, Aug. 6.-(/P)-Spanish
loyalists tonight claimed surrender
of rebel Cadiz in the south, smashed
toward northern Zaragoza with cap-
ture of 2,000 fascists, and dug in for
two more months of warfare to quell
the 20-day-old rebellion.
Landing of 4,000 additional Moroc-
can troops on the Spanish mainland,
after a five-hour battle in the Straits
of Gibraltar, was the chief rebel gain
for the day. It brought to 8,000 the
African forces now available to the
southern Fascists.
Want Munitions
Both sides, admittedly in the mar-
ket for munitions, faced the problem
of finding any available to them with
announcement eight European na-
tions had agreed in principle to supply
neither Fascists nor Loyalists with
arms.
Capture of Cadiz marked an impor-
tant advance by the Loyalists who had
been unable to penetrate the southern
sector effectively since the revolt
began.
(Berlin dispatches reported four
German citizens had been executed at
Barcelona after brief courtmartial,
although they carried necessary iden-
tification popers. The German am-
bassador delivered a protest to the
Barcelona government.
(French advices from Morocco as-
serted German warships were sta-
tioned off Cadiz, and reported rumors
they might go to Barcelona to de-
mand apology for bombardment of
the German freighter Sevilla in the
Gibraltar straits).
Likewise, the advance toward Zara-
goza was an invasion of strongly in-
trenched rebel territory. The govern-
ment army was 11 miles from the
rebel city at' nightfall.
Loyalists To Advance
Surrender of the 2,000 rebels opened
the road for swift advance, the Loy-
alists asserted.
An aerial survey of Fascist posi-
tions inspired admission that the
campaign to put down the revolt in
all sectors would be a long, bitter
battle.
Abandoning first efforts to dislodge
the foe in one or two crushing ad-
vances, loyal forces settled down for
prolonged warfare in the Guadar-
rama mountains outside Madrid.
Aviation chiefs asserted enemy po-
sitions were so well fortified, it was
highly improbable the Fascists could
be blasted out before the better part
of two months.

Officials Begin
Probe Of Fatal
Airliner Crash
Cause Of Accident Sought
In Wreckage; Witnesses
Aid Investigation
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 6.-()-In its
battered instruments and retracted
landing gear, investigators sought to-
day the cause of the crash which
last night killed all eight persons
aboard Chicago and Southern's air-
liner, "The City of Memphis."
Why Pilot Carl Zier turned and
started back for Lambert-St. Louis
municipal airport, within a few min-
utes after he had taken off for Chi-
cago, was a mystery the investigators
hoped to dispel.
Declining to speculate, Bureau of
Air Commerce inspectors studied the
wreckage and considered the stories
of several near eye-witnesses. From
Pilot James Benedict, who brought
the plane into St. Louis from New
Orleans, they learned it was in per-
fect mechanical order when he land-
ed.
The first results of the investiga-
tion may be given tomorrow when St.
Louis County Coroner Luke B. Tier-
non conducts an inquest into the
deaths of Zier, his co-pilot, Russell C.
Mossman, and the six passengers.
They were:
Vernon C. Omilie, widely known
airman and husband of Mrs. Phoebe
Omlie, former racing pilot and now a
Bureau of Air Commerce official.
W. S. Bartlett, 6930 South Shore

State Department Tells
Madrid Payment Must Be
Made For Damages
Motor Companies
May Bring Claim
Warning Was Prompted
By Report That Property
Seizures Are Permanent
WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.-(P)-
Spain's revolt-threatened popular
front government was served formal
notice by the United States today
that it will be held strictly account-
able for the protection of American
property in that country.
Disturbed over the potential men-
ace to America's $70,000,000 invest-
ment in that country, the State De-
'partment disclosed it had dispatched
a note to Madrid invoking the aid of
Spanish authorities in safeguarding
American property and warning that
compensation must be paid for any
damages.
Must Have Protection
"This government cannot admit
that private property, whether in the
hands of American nationals or aban-
doned by them temporarily because of
conditions over which they have no
control, may be interfered with im-
punity or denied the protection to
which it is entitled under interna-
tional law," said a summary of the
note released here.
"This government must, of course,
look to the government of Spain for
the protection of such property and
for 'indemnification for any delin-
quency in this respect.
"In the event of requisition for the
necessities of war or other wise of
American property this government
must insist that provision be made
for prompt and full compensation to
the owners."
The language of the note, some ob-
servers predicted, foreshadowed a
probable early claim against the
Spanish government for the recent
seizure of the Ford Motor Company
and General Motors Corporation
plants at Barcelona.
Anxious Over Property
Concern over these circumstances,
as well as anxiety lest other American
properties share a similar fate, im-
pelled the State Department to make
its formal representations.
These reports, reaching Washing-
ton through official channels but not
officially confirmed, were to the ef-
fect that the seizure of abandoned
factories would be permanent and
that no appeal would be admissible.
One extract from the reports said:
"All ministry of industry and com-
merce provisional measures probably
will become permanent because a
new state must be created in accord-
ance with the circumstances through
which the Republic is passing."
The seizures of the motor plants in
Bardelona were believed here to rep-
resent the first large scale requisi-
tioning of American property abroad
since the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in
Russia. The Soviet regime repudiat-
ed the obligations of the former gov-
ernment and American claims
amounting to almost $500,000,000 for
propertyconfiscated then have not
been settled.

Dante Would Recall Us To
Spiritual Values, Says Merlino

By MARSHALL D. SHULMAN
We must turn once again to a
faith in abiding spiritual values, the
poet Dante would tell our modern
world, which has substituted for those
values materialism, behaviorism and
other transient 'isms,' declared Prof.
Camillo P. Merlino, director of Italian
studies, last night. His talk, a spe-
cial lecture in the Summer Session
series was entitled "Dante's Message
to the Modern World."
"In Dante's thought, the true riches
for life here below can be acquired
through the exercise of the Cardinal
or Moral virtues-Prudence, Temper-
ance, Fortitude and Justice--and for
life in the hereafter by the possession
of the Evangelical or Christian virtues

( now, all too sad for our own peace
of mind and heart, seem, as then,
to defy a solution," he said.
The advance of the modern woirld,
said Professor Merlino, quoting Dr.M
Harry Emerson Fosdick, represents
merely "improved means toward un-
improved ends." "It may well be pon-
dered," Professor Merlino suggested,
"if 'in our natural eagerness to pay
homage to the mental and physical
prowess of man, we are not losing
sight of the fact that there is a do-
main which transcends this universe
of mind and matter, and which for
this very reason cannot be subject to
or controlled by reason or by the
intellect. This is the realm of the
spirit, or if you will, the reality of
