For the first portion of the sec-

ferred the activities ' from Manistee
to the town of Wellston, on M-55, for
the dedication of the Chittenden
Nursery, source of the almost count-
less seedlings with which it is plan-
ned to replenish the 1,300,000 acres
of the national forest. During the
afternoon the State Conservation

BIG MEADOWS, Va., July 3.--(P)-
President Roosevelt dedicated the

the curving peaks of the Blue Ridge
-Mr. Roosevelt praised the .national
park program as designed to provide
work for the idle and conserve the
beauty of the American forests.
"The product of the labor of the
men of the Civilian Conservation
Corps, who have opened the Shenan-
doah national park to the use and
enjoyment of our citizens," he said,
'is as significant as though instead
of working for the government they'
had worked in a mill or a factory.
They have a right to be as proud of
their labor here as if they had been
engaged in private employment."
Also holding a place upon the ded-
icatory program, Secretary Ickes
urged greater liberality on the part
of the Federal government in estab-
lishing national parks, but warned:
"We want no 'pork barrel' recrea-
tion policy, no national parks that
are log rolled through the halls of
Congress. Yet we require more parks
if we are wisely to anticipate future
needs, and surely there is enough
statesmanship in the country to set
up safeguards against reckless or im-

Beauty, 'Pint A - Day'
Valette, Is Sought
CHICAGO, July 3.-(IP)-A strange
game of "hide and seek" tonight con-
fronted police seeking the attractive
brunette wanted for questioning in
the hotel room slaying of "pint-a-
day" Audrey Vallette, 31, cafe beauty
She died of a single bullet wound
through the breast yesterday, ending
a pursuit of pleasure in near north
side haunts which a diary she left be-
hind disclosed started several months
ago. The rum soaked account of
her convivial "dates" ended frequent-
ly with the phrase "was I drunk?"
Hunted as a key witness was Mrs.
Ruth Freed, night club hostess, po-
,lice said they had identified as a
visitor to Miss Vallette's room short-
ly before she telephoned the hotel
deskman, "I've been shot."
The "hide and seek" centered
around Mrs. Freed and her husband,
Edward, partner in the "nut house,"
a North Clark Street gay spot, and
described by police as an admirer of

Swells Estate Of
MASON, Mich., July 3. -(IP) -
Buried treasure swelled the estate of
the late John Hurlburt, Dansville
Mrs. Ruth Barr, deputy probate
register, said a report of the estate's
administrator, Dennis N.Taylor of
Lansing, told of having dug several
thousand dollars in cash and govern-
ment bonds from underground "strong
boxes," concealed beneath a rail fence
on the farm and some piles of rock.
The money and securities were
packed in glass jars to protect them
Mrs. Barr said the report did not
reveal the amount taken from the
ground, but said she thought $5,000
would be "a good guess." Taylor de-
clined to comment. Neighborhood ru-
mors fixed the total at $14,000.
A wnciled line in a notebook
found among Hurlburt's possessions
furnished the clue tokthe money's
hiding place. For weeks the mean-
ing of the notation "1500 ep 1200. wp."
eluded Taylor, but finally he won-
dered whether it did not indicate
that money were buried under the
east and west piles of stone. A search
confirmed this. One report said a
crude sketch of the rail fence supplied
the clues to where the rest of the
money was hidden.
Hurlburt, a money lender, left an
estate of $38,000 to be divided among
a number of heirs, among them Amy
D. Fowler, of Jackson, a niece. He
died last January of a heart attack.

Helen Hayes Wins
In Real Life Drama
CHICAGO, July 3.-(P)-Helen
Hayes, diminutive star of stage and
screen, emerged a victorious heroine
tonight in a real life drama that cast
her as defendant in her first court
role on or off the stage.
A $100,000 suit that charged her
with alienating the affections of her
husband, playwright Charles Mac-
Arthur, from his first wife,. Carol
Frink, was dropped in Cook County
circuit court before the tiny actress
had entered one word of defense.
Three times the plaintiff offered to
drop the case before the defense ac-
Miss Hayes, her attorneys said, in-
sisted on fighting on until Mac Ar-
thur's first mate took back all the
"nasty" things she said about
"Charlie"-those wisecracks about
hocking his mother-in-law's diamond
ring, and "lying on the beach ,get-
ting healthy" while Miss Frink
tworked, and making love by stepping
on her feet, and moving from apart-
ment to apartment because "the bed
was too small for his feet."
