ister to Denmark, was married
today to Captain Boerge Rohde,
a gentleman in waiting to Den-
mark's King Christian X.
The blue-eyed Captain stooped
gallantly at one point in the cere-
mony and picked up a handker-
chief Mrs. Owen dropped. ,

Mayor Misses Date
With Extortionist
ROCKFORD, I11., July 11.-(P)
-Mayor George S. Brydia, of
Prophetstown, was late tonight
for his rendezvous with an ex-
tortionist who threatened to blow
up the village's business district
unless he was paid $1,000.
Brydia, who has served 16 years
in office and is one of the prin-
cipal grocers of the town of 1,-
500, drove here with Sheriff Em-
ery Thornell of Whiteside Coun-
They joined Sheriff Paul John-
son of Winnebago County and the
three dined leisurely at a res-
taurant, a half mile away from
the Rockford Public Library
where Brydia was to have met
the man who sent him the extor-
tion letter Wednesday.
Flanked by the two sheriffs,
Mayor Brydia drove pastethe hi-
brary several times, both eyes
peeled for the man who said he
was from the "Lamorra Society,"
and "meant business" when he
instructed the mayor to collect
$10 apiece from 50 Prophetstown
business men.

Mickey Cochrane
To Leave For Detroit
CODY, Wyo., July 11.-(')-
Mickey Cochrane, manager of the
Detroit Tigers, packed his grips
for departure from Cody tonight
to rejoin his team after a three-
week rest cure on a dude ranch.
Hearing at his hotel room that
Washington defeated Detroit in
today's game, Mickey said:
"They're a great bunch of boys
and Baker (Coach Del Baker) is
doing a swell job. Those Tigers
are getting lined out and will give
some team a lot of trouble."

Commenting on the lead of the
New York Yankees in the Amer-
ican League race, Cochrane said
"bigger leads than that have been
wiped out in a short time, and
there is still lots of time."
The Tiger manager expects to
resume play shortly after his re-
turn to Detroit, after the New
York series.

one we anticipate in Lansing," he
said. "We will follow with factories,
when the demands of the coopera-

after a time one can walk into a co-
operative and know that he is getting
the best product on the market."
Speaking of the local cooperative
movement, Mr. Kemitz said that it
will develop "slowly but surely. After
all," he said, "the people's money
will be better taken care of if we grow

There is one of every five families

As a world movement he believes
it cannot be stopped because it is too

Story Of Graduate Imprisoned
As SpFor Two Years Is Told

avoiding giving direct information as
to the type of position he was going
into with the statement that it was
"merely statistical work." Several
months later, word was received
from the Jacobsons in Berlin. And
then, in the fall of 1933, came the
surprising news of his arrest in Hel-
sinki as a Commusist spy, along with
a gang of Soviet agents, ranging from
the Finnish capital to Paris.
Friends in Northville finally suc-
ceeded in securing the release of Mrs.
Jacobson, and then raising money for
her return to the United States. She
immediately protested their inno-
cence, and told her story this way:
Jacobson was, admittedly, a Com-
munist "sympathizer," she said, and
he obtained a position as a statis-
tician for the Communist party in
New York. Then he was transferred
to Berlin, where he went willingly be-
cause he could study at the Uni-
versity of Berlin. All of this time,
Mrs. Jacobson claims, her husband
did not know that the true nature
of his work was espionage, and he did
not discover it until they were sud-
denly transferred to Helsinki.
As soon as he found out that he
was really a red spy, according to Mrs.
Jacobson, he asked Communist lead-
ers to release him from his work. This,
they told him, they could not do im-
mediately, but would try to oblige hin)
Then the trap was sprung, and the
Northville school teacher found him-
self within the shadow of a Finnish
firing squad.
His case aroused considerable at-
tention. Sen. Arthur H. Vanden-
berg, through the state department
in Washington, looked into the sit-
uation, provided Jacobson with coun-
sel and stood by to see that he had a
fair trial. He decided to tell the Fin-
nish authorities all he knew, provid-
ed they gave him a light sentence. Hei
received five years ,while some of his
alleged accomplices were sentenced to
20 years, life imprisonment and
Mrs. Jacobson, in Michigan, de-
nounced the whole trial as trickery.
And then, when her husband refused
to eat a year ago, she became ill with
fear. Again, her friends urged the
American legation in Helsinki to in-
tercede, which it did, finally getting
him to take food after more than a
week of "striking."
. Jacobson was well treated in the
Turku prison. He was'allowed to do
mechanical drawing, despite the fact

he was sentenced to "hard labor," and
to all appearances he was a model
prisoner. But he only could write
and receive one letter a week, to
and from his wife, and he wanted
his freedom.
Now that he has it, what the future
holds for him in the United States
no one knows. He is, more or less,
on the spot. The Communists are
against him for "squealing," and the
anti-reds are against him for being
hooked up with the Communists. He
has not indicated his plans, and Mrs.
Jacobson, at last reports studying in
the University of Chicago, has not yet
been reached.
There is a possibility, his friends
believe, that he may enroll as a grad-
uate student here at the University
of Michigan.
