-3Men Convicted In
Bannister Extortion Case
NEW YORK, Aug. 17.-(G)-A
general sessions court jury con-
victed three men today of extort-
ing money from Harry Bannister,
actor-producer, under threat of
making public affidavits which
would have tended to impute
shame to the former husband of
Ann Harding, the actress.
Judge Morris Koenig will sen-
tence the men Sept. 3. They are
Jerome A. Jacobs, 48, a New York
attorney; Harry Hechheimer, 63,
a former attorney who became a
salesman, and Raymond Der-
ringer, 39, a motion picture ma-
chine operator who testified he
had been hired to obtain affi-
davits favorable to Bannister
during the latter's child custody
dispute with Miss Harding.
Hechhimer has a record for a
previous conviction on an arson
charge and faces a sentence of
from 10 to 20 years. Jacobs and
Derringer could be sentenced to
from five to 10 years in prison.
Bannister testified to compli-
eated financial deals whereby the
state accused the trio of extort-
ing $1,800 from-Bannister.
During the trial Humbert Fu-
gazy, sports promoter, testified
that Bannister had paid $2,000
to escape death threatened by a
gunman and that Hechheimer,
then Bannister's attorney, had
arranged for protection.
Private Averts Fire
At Camp Custer
CAMP CUSTER, Aug. 17.-(/P)
-Quick action by Private Louis
Cowan of Rockford, Ill., who
leaped to the wheel of a blazing
automobile and drove it out of
range of a gasoline tank truck,
averted what might have been a
serious fire tonight.
Cowan, a member of Compaiy
E, 108th Quartermaster Regi-
ment, 33rd division, National
Guard, stood nearby as the car
was being refueled. When the fuel
ignited, he took the wheel and
drove the car to the other side of
Highway US12.
Private Robert Gibbs, of the
Eighth Illinois Service Company,
was burned about the face and
hands in the fire, and was treat-
ed at the Camp Custer Hospital.
The automobile was part of the
equipment of the Eighth Illinois
Infantry, a Negro regiment.
Demand For Townsend's
Arrest Refused
CLEVELAND, Aug. 17.-(')-
The arrest of Dr. Francis E.
Townsend, white-haired advocate
of a $200 monthly pension for
everybody over 60, was demanded
today-and refused-when he
failed to appear for a deposition
hearing in a receivership suit
against his organization.
Ben Sacharow, attorney for the
Rev. Alfred J. Wright, former
Townsend director, in the suit for
receivership and an accounting of
$1,000,000 in Townsend funds,
asked the arrest. Common pleas
Judge George W. Kerr refused
the demand after receiving as-
surance, he said ,that Dr. Town-
send was ill in Chicago.
Judge Kerr continued the case
-the same one from which Dr.
Townsend walked indignantly
last month only to be returned
by a deputy sheriff for further
questioning-until Thursday. He
announced, after a telephone
conversation with Dr. Townsend's
physician in Chicago, that he
was satisfied the pension plan
founder would appear at that

Predict 60 Billion
National Income
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17.-(W)
-Ernest G. Draper, assistant sec-
retary of commerce, predicted to-
day that unless there is some ma-
jor change in present business
trends national income produced
this year will be close to $60,-
Although acknowledging "it is
terribly difficult to give any defi-
nite figures," he said a prelim-
inary study of various statistics
had indicated the total would be
between $58,000,000,000 and $60,-
000,000,000. This would compare
with $52,959,000,000 last year,
$81,034,000,000 in 1929, and $39,-
545,000,000-the lowest figure

Clarke and Nurnberg have obvious-

Some people like to experiment

extreme contrast, very dark against
white and the other way around, but
this calls for a good deal of exper-

background you are apt to have the

body, that should not be accentuated
too much, have the background shad-
ed into them, and other parts that
would be lost in the background (ifR
the subject is wearing dark clothes)

Another thing to notice, is that
contrast is in the right place. A light
haired person in dark clothes against
a white board fence, will have her
clothes the center of attraction, be-
cause her head and hair are too simi-

Exhibition With Newest

Wish U. S. Had More
HYDE PARK, N. Y., Aug. 17.-(A')
-A wish that the nation had more
modern anti-aircraft guns was voiced
by President Roosevelt as he viewed
a regiment outfitted with the army's
finest equipment for smashing enemy
The President had one of the eight
three-inch anti-aircraft guns of the
Sixty-Second Coast Artillery set up
in an alfalfa field on his estate. Col-
onel Frank E. Ferguson, commanding
the unit, which was moving from Fort
Totten, Long Island, to Fort Ontario,
near Oswego, N. Y., told Mr. Roose-
velt the gun was the largest and
highest-powered ever perfected.
"These," the colonel said, "are the
first teeth we have had to show an
enemy invading us."
Wishes U.S. Had More
The President, who had pledged
the use of his powers to keep the
nation out of war in an address Fri-
day night at Chautauqua, N.Y., re-
"It's the first time I've ever seen-
one. I wish we had more of them."
Later he added that he had noticed
that not many planes were being
brought' down in the civil war in
Spain. Colonel Ferguson tgld him
that was because there were no guns
in Spain like those developed here.
The regiment is the only one in the
Army fully equipped with the most
up-to-date devices for smashing air
attacks. In addition to two batteries

"Miss Sherwood," who seeks to get
away from her life of pettiness and
"chalk dust," into a life of tranquil-
ity, finds that the fulfillment of her
life is in trying to help others fulfill
their own. There is the mechanical
principal, "Dr. Harriman," who in-
structs his staff members to "go up
the stairways marked 'up' and down
the stairways marked 'down.'" There
is, too, the inquisitive, assistant prin-
cipal, "Mr. Madison," who is most en-
grassed in counting the window-poles
of the rooms himself each night and
who finally comes upon a handsome
checking system which looks like a
"perfect bell-shaped curve."

,sodes, "Mr. Rogers," is locked in the
Ladies' Restroom with "Miss Wil-
liams," and his horror is intensified
by the fact that a fire-drill is con-
ducted at the same time, thus pro-
hibiting his escape. Clark and Nurn-
berg have made street urchins and
paupers parade through their play
with startling realism. Mrs. Baird
feels that they have discovered some-
thing quite definitely in the prosaic
lives of school teachers, and set it
upon the stage for everyone to see.

DETROIT, Aug. 17.-()-Prose-

pared papers today seeking the ex-
tradition of Virgil F. "Bert" Effinger
from Lima, O., on a charge of hav-
ing six hand grenades while visiting
here a year ago for a Black Legion
McRea, who sent a warrant to Lima
for Effinger's arrest, was notified by
a city attorney there that Effinger
was not to be arrested until formal
requisition papers arrived or a repre-

swear out an affidavit.
Effinger was called by McCrea a

charge of this part of the United
At Lima, Effinger said his only
knowledge of charges against him in
Detroit were "hearsay" and that he
would fight extradition.
"I have nothing to fear," Effinger
said. "I will stand on my constitu-
tional rights."
