One Killed, 3
Are Injured In
AutO Accident
Second Wreck In Week At'
Same Intersection Takes1
Life Of Redford Youth
In the second fatal accident within
a week at the intersection of Webster
Church and North Territorial Roads,,
Bernard Stiers, 18, of Redford, was
instantly killed and his three com-
panions injured as the result of a
collision with an Ann Arbor bound
car at 5:15 p.m. yesterday.
Stiers three companions, Donald,
Bernard, and Elmer Kehrer, all of
Redford, were taken to St. Joseph's
Hospital here for treatment. The
attending physician, Dr. Russell L.
Calcolm, could not be reached last
night to determine the extent of the
injuries suffered by the three boys.
The name of the driver of the sec-
ond car was not given but neither
he nor his companion, Miss Frances
Smith of Ann Arbor, were injured.
The car irr which Stiers was riding,
heading east on North Territorial
Road, hit the second car, going north
on Webster Church Road, and rolled
over several times.
Coroner Edwin C. Ganzhorn an-
nounced last night that, as a result
of these two accidents, he would
recommend to the county road com-
mission that a blinker light be in-
stalled at the intersection of these two
roads.

Bengals Shut Out 5-0 By
Senators As Burns Robs
Rival Of 'Perfect Game'
WASHINGTON, July 10. --(P) -
One lone, scratch hit today separated
Buck Newsom, Washington's husky
right-hand pitcher, from baseball's
hall of fame as he shut out the De-
troit Tigers five to nothing in the
best pitched game he has ever turned
in.
In the third inning Irving Burns,
the first baseman, hit one of New-
som's tosses between first and second.
Both Bluege and Kuhel went after
the ball. Bluege managed to stop it
but no one got to the bag quickly
enough to be'at Burns. Many thought
Kuhel should have drawn an error for
not letting Bluege handle the ball,
but the play went down as a hit.
Newsom got himself into a jam in
the eighth, when, with one out, he
walked three successive players to
fill the bases but forced Burns to
ground into a double play.
The Senators got to Elden Auker for
two runsbeforesthe first man was re-
tired in the first inning.
Chapman, first up, walked. Singles
by Lewis and Kuhelbrought Chap-
man home, and when Stone also

to Gehringer for the first out; Auker
fanned Bolton and Kress grounded to
Auker.
Lewis opened the third inning with
a single and Kuhel flied to Goslin.
Gehringer took tone's grounder and
tossed to Rogell, but the shortstop
dropped the throw and both runners
were safe. Lewis scored on Travis'
single; then Bolton smashed a double

2 Injured Are Expected
To Survive; Coroner's
Inquest To Be Held
Two Ann Arbor Negroes were killed
instantly early yesterday morning,
and two more severely injured when
their car collided with a freighting
truck on Stadium Boulevard near the
State Street overhead and was driven
150 feet along the roadway, clipped
off a telephone pole, and finally came
to rest less than a foot from a frame
dwelling at 1505 White St.
The dead are Edmond Carter, 43
years old, 1050 Wall St., driver of the
car, and Frank Fields, 62 years old,
827 N. Main St. Fred Adams, 52 years
old, 122 W. Kingsley St., suffered
compound fractures of both legs and
extensive lacerations, and Richard
Woods, 30 years old, 505 N. Fifth Ave.,
received severe cuts about the head,
but doctors at St. Joseph's Mercy
Hospital, where the two men were
taken, said both would live.
All four occupants of the passenger
car were relief workers, on their way
to a road construction job on Bemis
Road near Saline when the accident
occurred at 7:10 a.m. yesterday.
John Csach, 21 years old, 1777 W.
Fourteenth St., Detroit, driver of the
truck, was uninjured, and was re-
leased by Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp
after questioning, pending a coroner's
inquest set for next Wednesday night.
According to Csach, he and the pas-
senger car, slightly ahead of him, 3
were both proceeding east 6n Sta.
dium Boulevard, when Carter's car
edged out from the outside lane to
the center lane, as if to make a left
turn. As the truck continued on in
the right lane, overhauling the pas-
senger car, Carter suddenly attempted
to make a right turn in front of the
truck.
Csach, driving about 25 miles an
hour according to his own story and
that of wlitnesses, was unable to stop
his heavy truck, loaded with six tons
of iron jacks and miscellaneous
freight, and struck the Carter car,
carrying it on up the road.
Rapp, after taking a statement
from the truck driver, said that while
he had not yet questioned all wit-
nesses, he had found no evidence of
negligence on Csach's part, and saw
no reason to hold him. The truck,
owned and operated by the Western
Michigan Transportation Co., was en

2,500 Acres Burned
In Hiawatha Forest

(By the Associated Press)
Field men of the conservation de-
partment battled the ravages of for-
est fires in a score of Michigan wood
sections Friday night as the tinder-
like condition of the timber slash
produced what experts termed the 1
worst situation since 1931.s
The most serious blaze, fought by,
1,600 men working three shifts, raged
over nearly 2,000 acres in the Hia-
watha National Forest near Escanabat
and Manistique.
Some 300 of those on the fire linec
were employes of lumber companiesT
in the area, the others were mostly ,
CivilianaConservation Corps workers.
Plows, pumps and fire hose were
rushed from Milwaukee today to Es-
canaba.
An airplane reconnaissance by E.-
Ranguette, Nahma flyer, showed the 1
fire, burning through slash from sev-'
eral years cutting north of Nahma,1
was being driven north by a shift
in the mind. Flying sparks, he re-
ported, were setting spot fires ahead
of the main blaze.
Fire-fighters working under diffi-
culties in the area which is untapped
by roads. The workers must walk
or use a logging railroad.
At Lake Fumee, south of Iron
Mountain, twenty fire-fighters were
ditching an area to head off a brush
blaze. They reported belief it was
under control, but a slight breeze
was fanning the flames.
H. R. Sayre, chief of field adminis-
tration for the conservation depart-
ment, and Mert McLure, regional su-
pervisor, planned an air patrol of a
far-flung battle front of flames in the
Lower Peninsula. All but three of
36 fires burning Thursday in the area
were reported controlled under 15
acres.
A forest fire six miles north of Al-
pena had covered 300 to 400 acres,
workers experiencing trouble because
the soil formation, shale and brush,
would not permit use of plows.
Most of the emergency and aux-
iliary fire equipment available in the
area was used to control a fire which
burned over 3,000 acres near Kal-
kaska. Fire in a hay field west of
Atlanta burned over 200 acres.
Blaze Slashes 2,500
Acres Of Hardwood
ESCANABA, July 10.-(P)-Spread-
iug rapidly despite a feverish attack
by a crew of between 600 and 700
men, a forest fire in the Dana Lake
region, north of Nahma, in the Hia-
watha National Forest, had burned
through 2,500 acres of hardwood
slashing early this evening and was
still far from control.

CHICAGO, July 10.- (P) -Half the
states of the union baked today in
shimmering heat whic hdrove tem-
peratures beyond the 100 degree mark
generally through the Middle West,
the East and South.
Fatalities in the eighth day of one
of the most relentless heat waves in
recent weather history mounted to
421, tonight.
There was no general relief fore-
cast for tomorrow, although scat-
tered showers were indicated for the
parched areas of western and North
Dakota, for sections of South Da-
kota, Minnesota and the forest
stretches of Upper Michigan.
National Maximum At 113.5
A national maximum of 113.5 de-
grees was established today in Aber-
deen, S. D., while it was only half a.
degree cooler in Jamestown, N.D.
Bowling Green, O., and Bedford, Ind.,
sweltered in temperatures of 110.
The huge total of drought losses,
estimated at $300,000,000, continued
to grow.
New York state led in early tab-
ulations of deaths with at least 17
for the day. Ohio counted ten, Mich-
igan and Wisconsin nine and Illinois
seven.
And no immediate relief was in
sight. With generally fair weather
prevailing over the northern half of
the nation, forecasters expected at
least two more days of abnormal heat.
Food Supply Threatened
The prediction was the greatest
concern as drought ate steadily into
the nation's potential food supply,
carrying a threat to the pocketbooks
of all consumers.
Reflecting the heat's extension into
the critical period for the great mid-
western corn crop, prices rose thel
four cent limitcallowed in a day's
trading. The corn situation domi-
nated the Chicago grain pits, though
other cereals shared in the advance,
and closing prices were virtually the
highest for the year. Corn for De-
cember delivery was 771/2 cents a
bushel.
Private reports of LaSalle Street
estimated that even with immediate
favorable weather, Iowa--the banner
corn state-would produce no more
than 60 per cent of a crop.
Government crop estimates released
late in the afternoon set total wheat
production at 638,399,000 bushels for
spring and winter varieties and corn
at 2,244,834,000 bushels. The figures
were based on July 1 expectations,

'For F.D.R., Alf.'
Radio Priest Picks Lemkej
Because Of News From
'Behind Closed Doors'
DETROIT, July 10. - (/P) - The
Rev. Father Charles E. Coughlin said
today that he writes off both Pres-
ident Roosevelt and Gov. Alf M. Lan-
don as defeated for the 1936 presi-
dential race.
The Detroit radio priest said he
based his analysis of the political
situation on what he had heard "be-
hind closed doors" in his travels.
Although he has given his personal
backing to Rep. Gerald Lemke, of
North Dakota, Union Party candidate,
Fr. Coughlin did not claim it was be-
cause of Lemke that the others face
defeat.
Of the President he said:
"I am positive Mr. Roosevelt will
not be elected.
"There's a definite trend toward
conservatism in this country ...
"In spite of Mr. Roosevelt's semi-
conservative platform, there is a feel-
ing he doesn't keep his promises.
Of the Republican prospects,
Coughlin said:
"Gov. Landon's return to the gold
standard has defeated him."
Father Coughlin said, Rep. Lemke,
was "an even money bet" to carry
Michigan.
"Roosevelt could have taken it, but
he insisted that Frank Murphy run
for governor.
"That ruined him. People don't
want state candidates chosen from
Washington."

time in three days, Ann Arbor con-
tinued to swelter under the terrific
heat wave that has gripped the entire
Middle West for days.
During Prof. Robert Hall's geo-
graphy class, while the temperature
was at 93, one woman almost col-
lapsed and had to be assisted from
the classroom. She was not taken to
the Health Service but was reported
as resting at home last night.
The mercury ran wild again, and
the University Observatory recorded
the high for the day shortly after 4
p.m., taking a reading of 100.2 de-
grees.
Due to the presence of some winds,
mostly west and some northwest, the
temperature kept rising and falling
slightly during the entire afternoon,
Mary E. Lindsey of the Observatory
said last night. When the high of
100.2 was reached, it was the second
time during the afternoon that the
Observatory recorded a temperature
of over 100 degrees, having taken a
reading of 100.1 shortly before 3 p.m.
Nicholas Nolan, 70 years old, of 336
E. Washington St., who suffered a
cerebral hemorrhage, said to have
been indirectly caused by the heat,
was still in St. Joseph's Mercy hos-
pital. Dr. Leo A. Knoll, who treated
the case, said last night that Mr.
Nolan would probably have to remain
in the hospital for several days. His
condition was reported as fair.
Mrs. Benjamin Webb, 45 years old,
of 221 N. Fifth Ave., was released
from St. Joseph's Mercy hospital yes-
terday morning. She had suffered a
heat prostration Thursday afternoon.
All during the last three days the
number of people who have sought
the waters of nearby ponds and lakes
as a rescue from the blazing sun and
the scorching heat has grown larger.
,The beaches at Portage and Whit-
more Lakes were reported to be
crowded yesterday, and students and
townspeople alike have engaged in
midnight swimming parties since the
temperature gave no indication of
falling to any appreciable extent
during the nights.
No break in the heat wave was pre-
dicted last night.
Michigan Counts
Dead At 67
(By the Associated Press)
Michigan, sweltering under the
third day of heat which soared be-
yond the 100-degree mark, counted
its dead at 67 from prostration,
drowning and other causes attribut-
able to the intense summer weather.
Weather forecasters would prom-
ise no immediate relief, as they pre-
dicted continued clear weather and
heat for Saturday.
Detroit's toll of death from heat
and drowning mounted Friday to 31
while 36 deaths were reported from
other sections of the State.
For the first-time in the history of
the Detroit weather bureau the of-
ficial thermometer registered 100 de-
grees for the third successive day.
At Bay City the thermometer
soared to 106 at 7 p.m. while at Ad-
rian it stood at 105 at midafternoon.
Saginaw recorded a reading of 104.5.
Detroit had a reading of 102 at 2:30
p.m. while other cities with 100 de
grees or better were Flint, Battle'
Creek, Jackson and Ann Arbor.
The State Department of Agricul-
ture feared the torrid temperatures
would cause heavy losses to Michigan
bean growers. George S. Willard,
