Of The
DAY

(From The Associated Press)
Russian Flyers
Reach Seattle
SEATTLE, Aug. 6.-(P)-Sig-
ismund Levanevsky and Victor
Levehenko, Russian airmen,
landed at the Sand Point Naval
air base at 4:50 p.m., (7:50 p.m.
EST) today, en route from Cal-
ifornia to Russia by way of Al-
aska and the Arctic.
They averaged 170 miles an
hour, arriving from Alameda,
Cal., so much earlier than ex-
pected that no one except the
station crew greeted them.
Weather permitting, they said,
they plan to hop at 8 a.m., ((1
a.m. EST) tomorrow for Juneau,
Alaska.
After immediately refuelling
their plane-it had only 15 gal-
lons on arrival-the fliers went
to the U. S. Weather Bureau to
study reports.
Having arrived 40 minutes be-
fore their Seattle interpreter,
Nicholas Sokoloff, had expected
them the Russians had difficulty
making known their wants.
Levanevsky said the fliers' in-
terests are purely scientific; that
the flight will benefit commercial
aviation, but has no military sig-
nificance. He said he hopes a
practical aerial route linking
America and Russia can be found
by way of the Arctic.
The Russians left Alameda at
11:21 a.m. after flying there yes-
terday from San Pedro.
Paroled Convict Named
As Kalamazoo Gunman
KALAMAZOO, Aug. 6.-P)-
Police said tonight that Theo-
dore Bergstedt, paroled Indiana
convict who was killed in a gun
battle with two Kalamazoo of-
ficers, had been identified as a
participant in a robbery here on
June 19. -
State Police lifted their block-
ade of southwestern Michigan
highways, convinced that Berg-
sted's companion who fled during
the gun battle, had escaped.
The identification, police said,
was made by James Slayden, a
clerk in the National Biscuit Co.
offices here. Slayden said he was
positive Bergstedt was one of the
two men who invaded the offices,
forced him and another man to
lie on the floor, and then ran-
sacked the office.
Oscar Bergstedt, the slain
man's father, told police he be-
lieved his son was working in a
Detroit automobile factory.
Bergstedt was not one of the
men involved in the earlier
shooting of Police Chief Fred
Bosma of Zeeland, the police
were told.
Trotzky Rumored Accused
Of International Intrigue
OSLO, Norway, Aug. '7.-(Fri-
day)-(RP)-Leon Trotzky, exiled
Russian Communist leader, was
reported early today to have been
accused by police authorities of
carrying on international in-
trigue.
Trotzky's permit to stay in Nor-
way was conditioned on the pro-
mise that he would not carry on
such activity.
It was understood police en-
tered his home at Honefos yester-
day. Officers were said to have
determined that he had received
a number of foreign visitors in
recent weeks and had had fre-
quent telephone conversations
with Paris, especially during the
recent period of widespread
French strikes.

The former Bolshevik leader
was described as extremely nerv-
ous because of recent Norwegian
Nfizi activity against him. He was.
said to have declared an auto-
mobile containing Nazis. pursued
him through Southern Norway
yesterday when he was en route
to Christiansand, where he visited
a well-known Marxist editor.
The Norwegian government
granted Trotzky permission, on
June 19, to remain in the country
for two more months. He was
said at that time to be doing lit-
erary work with the assistance of
two Russian secretaries.

Final

The LENS
By ROBERT L. GACH
What Is The Candid Camera?
In recent years we have heard more
and more about Candid pictures. Ag-
gressive publicity men have tied the
words "candid camera, or candid
pictures" to every product from the
newspapers all the way down to tooth
paste. Technically speaking there
are only two type of cameras that I
feel can be really called candid cam-
eras. One costs almost $300. and the
other is almost $400. This statement
is based not. only on the speed of the
lens but the ease of operation and
high quality. But let us forget tech-
nicalities and now the question takes
on an entirely different aspect. No
camera is definitely a candid camera,
but any camera, even the 39c toys
that swept over the country last
summer, can be a candid camera if
used as such.
Candid photography is not ad-
vanced photography, but it~ is ad-
vanced photographicypsychology, it is
a study of human nature rather than
photography. The camera that you
own will determine the smallest
amount of light under which you
can get pictures, but out in the sun-
light, the brownie box camera and
the f.1.5 Contax are on an equal
basis.
Of course the Contax will get pic-
tures that are better photographically
speaking (for $400 it should) but they
don't have to be one bit morecandid
than the ones taken with the box
camera. On the subject of equip-
ment, don't ever get the idea that the
very fastest lens is necessary to work
indoors under Mazda light. But if
lighting is equal the faster the lens
the shorter the period that your shut-
ter has to be open.
Wait Till Subject Is Still
So if you are working with a slow
lens you have to wait until your sub-
ject is perfectly still then take a short
time exposure; perhaps it will be only
a few seconds and quite easy to take,
but notice that you have to wait for
the subject to hold still. If you own
a fast machine then you can shoot
any time that your subject assumes
an interesting position, but only if
you own the very fastest lens, and it is
on a camera that can be focused on
the dot, and manipulated very easily,
can you catch some of those rare ex-
pressions in the type of picture best
described as "Now or never." This is
the advantage of the fast camera, but
most of us have millions of opper-
tunities for candid pictures in day-
)ight and then it is not the camera but
the operator that counts. You can
find new interest in your camera that
you never thought could possibly ex-
ist. Stop asking people to watch for
the birdie (you are probably only
making a cuckoo bird out of yourself
anyway).
Get Natural Poses
Try to catch pictures of people do-
ing things, acting natural, and being
themselves. Most people are very self
conscious and when they face the
camera they look scared stiff. Catch
them in unposed action and you will
have a photographic record that you
will treasure forever.
But remember two things. First

Coughlin Aids
Americanism,
StatesBishop
ROME, Aug. 6.--(P)-Bishop
Joseph Schrembs of Cleveland pic-
tured the Rev. Charles E. Coughlin
tonight as a protector of American
institutions.
"Father Coughlin," B i s h o p
Schrembs said in an interview, "is
really fighting for the preservation
of American democracy which I am
sure will successfully withstand Eur-
opean surges both toward Commun-
ism and toward Fascism."
Bishop Michael J. Gallagher of De-
troit, Father Coughlin's ecclesiastical
superior, yesterday described the
Priest's work as counteracting anti-
clericalism such as in Spain and said
he encouraged him to continue it.
Both prelates were granted recent
audiences by Pope Pius XI. After
Father Coughlin's attacks against
President Roosevelt there was specu-
lation he had incurred papal dis-
pleasure. Both, however, maintained
neither the Priest's charges, for which
he apologized, nor even his name en-
tered the conversations.
Tonight, Bishop f Schrembs com-
pared likenesses and differences in
the work of Father Coughlin andI
Premier Mussolini of Italy.

Jim Farley Scored
By Wilber Brucker

- ROSCOMMON, Aug. 6.-UP)-Wil-
ber M. Brucker, campaigning for the
Republican nomination for United
States senator, told an audience here
today that "Boss Farley is bargain-
ing for votes with tax money."
He charged that "ten million dol-
lars of WPA money is being held up
today" because State Highway. Com-
missioner Murray D. Van Wagoner
"refuses to promise that it will be
used in the New Deal campaign."
Brucker said that "Big Jim Farley
accuses the Republican party of
heartlessness when I and others crit-
icize the New Deal's waste and cor-
ruption, disguised as relief to the
needy."
