MADRID, Aug. 11.-(P)-The gov-
ernment's airforce tonight launched
an intense bombardment of all rebel
concentration lines and reported
many Fascist forces disorganized and
in retreat.
Rebel rear guards, the government
said, were so severely damaged that
in their haste to retreat they had
placed their fronts in grave danger.
One of the strongest air drives was
against Pozoblanco, key point of the
Loyalist attack on Cordoba in the
South. Attacks also were launched
against Jaen and Granada.
Fra~nco's Troops Routed
Four loyal bombing planes leading
the attack on Pozoblanco dropped
large quantities of bombs, the aviat-
ors reported, and completely demor-
alized the rebels.
Cutting deep into southern rebel
territory, the loyalists captured Ada-
muz, seized two pieces of artillery and
several machine guns, then marched
on the important rebel town of Cor-
doba, 21 miles further south.
To all appearances, the government
forces were fast disorganizing the

tinued by the loyalists.
Rebel claims to Santander on the
northern frontier and Badajoz, near
Portugal in the South, were denied
by the war Ministry here.
Loyalists Capture Villages
(Capture of Santander and Bada-

Lindbergh Demonstrates Robot
Heart In His Debut As Scientist


Works With Alexis Carrel'
Bef ore Cytology Congress
At Copenhagen
COPENHAGEN, Aug. 1.-(P)-Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh, in his first
public appearance as a scientist, and
Dr. Alexis Carrel today displayed
their mechanical heart 'to eager, ex-
cited members of the International
Congress of Experimental Cytology.
In groups of ten, the scientists
pushedintothe small room to learn
intricacies of the apparatus by which
organs of the body can be kept alive
indefinitely for observation and study.
Dr. Carrel, who supplied technical
knowledge for construction of the
heart, answered questions in French.

Seek Pensions
In 4,308 Cases
Now On Relief
State Relief Commission
Strives For Agreement
With Old Age Bureau
LANSING, Aug. 11.-(P)-The
State Emergency Relief Commission
bargained with the Old Age Assist-
ance Bureau today to remove 4,308
cases from direct relief and support
them with pensions.
Dr. William Haber, state relief di-
rector, told the commission it has
been paying $43,000 monthly to sup-
port the cases, all of which are el-
igible for old age assistance. Com-
missioners agreed to turn $200,000 of
its funds over to the bureau if it ac-
cepts the aged cases.
Haber explained the Federal gov-
ernment will match the $200,000 with
a like amount under the Social Se-
curity Act. He estimated if the bu-
reau accepts the proposal, both it and
the commission will have sufficient
funds to meet requests for aid until
after January.
Opposes Fitzgerald
The commission has $6,163,824 left
from the $9,000,000 state appropria-
tion for the present fiscal year after
making its allocation for August. The
relief director pointed out the legis-
lature will be in session when funds
are exhausted and may make an
emergency appropriation.
Chairman William J. Norton, of
Detroit, voiced a commission policy
indirectly in opposition to the opin-
ion of Governor Fitzgerald when he
said industrial strikers will be fed if
they are hungry. Governor Fitz-
gerald recently told representatives of
a group of upper peninsula laborers
he could not promise them support
for their famiiles if they struck.
"We previously passed on that
question," Norton said when the is-
sue was discussed today. "We have
no right, when a person is hungry,
to ask him the cause."
The commission agreed to advance
relief clients who are occupying
homes they are buying with HOLC
loans an amount not to exceed norm-
al rent to apply on the interest or
principal of the loans. Haber ex-
plained the procedure would entail no
extra expense.
The commission approved today the
reorganization of 10 county relief
commissions. It postponed decision
on the commission suggested for
Hillsdale County.

The exhibit was closed after two
and one-half hours but will open daily
the remainder of the week. The pro-
gram was held up for a time because
the Colonel could find no thyroid
gland necessary to make the heart
work. Finally a cat was located, de-
prived of the thyroid, and the show
went on.
The scientists asked questions ex-
citedly, and peered intently through
the glass doors of the apparatus as
they watched pumps send a blood
serum through the heart with rhyth-
mic pulsations. The action auto-
matically introduced an oxygen sup-
ply and expelled carbon dioxide,
much in the manner of a living heart.

doctors were in black blouses and
wore rubber gloves.

Indians Gain One Game On
Yanks As Becker Triplest
With Vosmik On Base
CLEVELAND, Aug. 11.-()-The
Cleveland Indians strengthened their
hold on second place and gained a
game today on the New York
Yankees, leaders in the American
League, by defeating the Detroit Tig- ,
ers, 6 to 5.
Joe Becker's triple with Joe Vosmik
on third base in the eighth inning
gave the Indians the winning run of
the game.
The victory put the Indians three
and one half games ahead of the
Chicago White Sox in third place and
reduced the first place margin of the
Yankees to ten and one half games.
Gehringer Hits Homer
The Tigers took the lead in the1
third inning when Gehringer hit a
home run, scoring Burns ahead of
him. The Indians got one run back
in the fourth inning when Hal'
Trosky hit his 33rd home run of the
The Indians scored four runs in the
sixth inning. Singles by Averill,
Trosky and Weatherly and a sacri-
fice by Vosmik accounted for two of
them. Becker then forced Weather-
ly and Knickerbocker followed with
a home run, scoring Becker ahead of
Detroit evened the score in the
seventh with a walk, two singles and
a double, setting the stage for Beck-
er's decisive triple in the eighth.
Young Jake Wade, Tiger rookie,
started on the mound for Detroit and
held the Indians to four hits in five
innings, but he collapsed in the big
sixth when he was touched for four
more blows and as many runs. Roxie
Lawson replaced him after he was
lifted.for a pinch hitter in the sev-
enth. Lawson was charged with the
defeat because the Tigers had tied
the score in their rally.
White Starts Rally
The victory was Dennis Galehouses'

seventh of the season. The Tigers
touched him and Lee, who replaced
him in the ninth for 12 hits, two more

Indicted On
Spy Charges
Two Japanese Naval Men
Named Conspirators In
Conspiracy Lasted
For Three Years
Attorney To Attempt Proof
That $500 Given Each
Month To Farnsworth
WASHINGTON, Aug. 11.-(P)-
Naming two Japanese naval officers
as conspirators, a federal grand jury
here today indicted former Liteuten-
ant-Commander John S. Farnsworth
for plotting to betray American mil-
itary secrets.
Assistant United States Attorney
Samuel F. Beach said he had not
sought the indictment of the Jap-
anese officers, Yosiyuki Itimiya and
Okira Yamaki, because they were pro-
te.eted by diplomatic immunity.
In an earlier indictment Farns-
worth, who was ousted from the serv-
ice in 1927 for "scandalous conduct"
was accused of delivering a confiden-
tial naval publication to unnamed
Japanese agents.
Claiming that both Itimiya and
Yamaki, had served as Japanese naval
attaches at the embassy here, Beach
said he believed they had left the
United States "some time ago."
Conspiracy Charge Made
The jury charged that Farns-
worth had "corruptly and feloniously
conspired" with the two officers and
other persons to turn over secret doc-
uments, "with reason to believe" that
they would be used "to the injury
of the United States and the benefit
of Japan."
The indictment listed code and
signal books, sketches, models, blue
prints, maps, photographs, instru-
ments and appliances as the "docu-
ments" Farnsworth was accused of
The conspiracy continued, the
grand jury charged from Jan. 1, 1933,
until a few days before Farnsworth's
arrest last, month.
Paid $500 Monthly
Beach said Itimya had been ap-
pointed naval attache in 1933 and
that Yamaki had succeeded him in
Nov., 1934.
He added that he would try to prove
at a federal district court trial in Oc-
tober that Farnsworth was paid $500
a month during the period of the
conspiracy, and that he also received
"an entertainment fund and several
Evidence intended to show that
Farnsworth met the attaches in the
hope of a Japanese newspapers cor-
respondent also will be presented at
the trial, Beach said. He explained
that the men used this house as "their
customary rendezvous."
Rome Prelates
Say Cougllin
Was Discussed
VATICAN CITY, Aug. 11.-(P)-
The Rev. Charles E. Coughlin's po-
litical activities were discussed of-
ficially by Pope Pius XI and Bishop
Michael Gallagher of Detroit, Vatican
prelates disclosed today, but were ex-
plained satisfactorily.
They disagreed with Bishop Gal-
lagher's assertion that the matter
had not been reviewed in high Vati-

can circles. But they said the
doughty, white-haired champion of
Father Coughlin had "accomplished
his mission."
The bishop, Father Coughlin's ec-
clesiastical superior, explained the
radio priest's activities and his
"priestly qualities," they said, to the
Vatican secretariat and the state
consistorial congregation-in a word,
to the "Holy See" itself.
The visit, they added, ended any
possible doubt concerning Father
Coughlin's political activities in the
minds of Vatican officials and bore
out Bishop Gallagher's insistence the
matter warranted neither action nor
censure by the Holy See.

Germany And
Japan Share
Swim Honors
Except For Diving Event,
United States Fails To
Take Firsts
Japan Tops Record
In 800-Meter Relay
German Oarsmen Deal Out
'Bitter Medicine' To All
Their Competitors
BERLIN, Aug. 11.-(P)-With Ger-
many and Japan sharing honors both
in and on the water the United States,
except for her divers, was relegated
to the "also ran" class today as the
11th Olympiad approached the three-
quarter mark.
The lone bright spot, from the
American standpoint, was the sweep
of medals in the springboard diving
championship with Dick Degener,
Detroit; Marshall Wayne, Miami, and
Al Greene, Chicago, finishing in that
order and giving the United States
her second straight diving blanket
triumph. Degener finished third in
the 1932 sweep.
Japan Wins Relay
Otherwise Uncle Sam's representa-
tives got allwet taking the back-
wash of their rivals. Despite Japan's
triumph in the men's 800 meter relay
final in world record-breaking time of
eight minutes 51.5 seconds with the
American quartet a distant second,
the Nipponese and the Americans
stood on even terms in the fight for
the men's team swimming title with
25 points each as the result of the
divers' exploits.
Hideko Maehata gave Japan an-
other swimming gold medal, captur-
ing the 200 meter breast stroke
championship after a spirited stretch
duel with the German girl, Martha
Genenger, who was beaten by a foot.
The husky daughter of Nippon's time
was 3:03.6-one and seven-tenths of
a second slower than the new Olympic
mark she set in the trials.
Some distance away at Grunau, on
the ruffled waters of "der Lange See,"
Germany's oarsmen dealt out bitter
medicine to Americans, as well as
other rivals.
U. S. Last In Skulling
The Teuton four-oared with Cox-
swain Shell, defending the title won
at Los Angeles four years ago, rowed
the fastest heat, 6:41.1, in the trials
while the best the American could
could do in the same heat was tie
Poland for fourth and last place.
The German pair-oared without
coxswain combihation likewise reg-
istered the best time of the prelimi-
naries, covering the 2,000 meters in
7:12.6. In this event the American
duo finished last behind Hungary,
Denmark and Uruguay in that order.
The most disappointing develop-
ment of all, however, was the per-
formance turned in by Dan Barrow,
Jr., of Philadelphia, national cham-
pion, in finishing fifth and last in the
single sculls trials. His heat was won
by Germany's European champion,
Gustav Schaefer, with Austria's Has-
enoerl taking second, Canada's
Charlie Campbell, third and Aus-
tralia's Cecil Pearce, fourth.
The winners of heats in the four
and two-oared events qualified for
Friday's finals and the single scull

Unemployed Auto Worker,
Man Jailed For 10 Days

Reverberations of the celebrated
Streicher case of Ypsilanti were heard
here yesterday as county authorities

The two suspects are Paul G.

Vandersall of Ypsilanti for exposing
himself before school children.
Stachlewitz, brought to the county
jail at 11 p.m. Monday by the State

Upside Down Scenery Gives
Proper Topsy-Turvy Effect

If Frederic was a leapyear baby and
was to come of age in 1940, and was
apprenticed to a pirate rather than}
a pilot by his stupid nurse, for hisI
precocious daring at the age of five,
what would be the period of Gilbert
and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance"
opening tonight at the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre?
Evelyn Cohen, the costumiere, who
was most concerned about answering
this riddle so that she might design
the costumes appropriately, decided
that it must have been 1870 accord-
ing to the leap-year arrangement.
"I preferred to date the costumes,"
Miss Cohen said. "I decided that it
would be best to give them a certain
amount of shape."
Accordingly, when Miss Cohen
toured to Detroit with her assistant,
James V. Doll, having exhausted Ann.
Arbor's supply of dry goods in the

the audience is seldom aware of any
discrepancies, but the mood is there
very definitely rather than having
merely a mass of colors on the stage,"
she said.
"In designing the costumes for the
policemen, I chose to give them rather
effeminate tunic effects, rather than
the straight English Bobbie types,
which they were," she continued, "be-
cause these policemen are very shy,
and actually hiding from one an-
other." She indicated piles of three-
quarter length bright blue coats with
gold buttons and stripes at the cuffs
upon which she was putting the fin-
ishing touches.
"I have always been very interested
in doing musical shows," she said.
"Although I've done 300-odd shows
during my career, I've only done two
musicals, both of them in Ann Arbor,
