CLEVELAND, July 21.-(P)-Dr.
Francis E. Townsend staged another
"walk out" today but in an auto
chase a deputy sheriff brought him
back to resume a deposition hearing
about the Townsend old age pension
The pension leader walked out of a
hearing being conducted by Benjam-
in F: Sacharow, attorney. It was a
scene reminiscent of the day he ab-
ruptly left a hearing by a Congres-
sional committee investigating the
Townsend movement.
"It's none of your business," Dr.
Townsend replied to one of Sachar-
ow's questions. He picked up his notes
and abruptly departed.f
'Another Walkout,' Boys
"It's another walkout, boys," said
Sheridan" Downey, his counsel. To-
gether they left the hotel room in
which the hearing was conducted.
Dr. Townsend immediately an-
nounced he was leaving for Erie, Pa.,
to keep a speaking engagement.
Sacharow obtained a citation for con-
tempt of court from a notary public.s
Deputy Sheriff Joe Pdseday armed
himself with a body attachment.
Sacharow and the deputy, accom-
panied by Sacharow's brother, set out'
from the hotel in a taxicab, following'
Dr. Townsend's limousine.
They sped through side streets and
in East Cleveland headed off and
stopped Dr. Townsend's car on a
main route. With Dr. Townsend
were his wife and Harry Maines.
Have To Hurry
"We had to use plenty of speed to
head off Townsend's high powered
limousine," said Sacharow. He
charged Townsend was in flight.
The deputy escorted Dr. Townsend'
to common pleas court. There, the
doctor said "I am not at all dis-
pleased. It will probably resultdin
5,000 more clubs being organized the
country over. It is all very high-
handed, but since it is to my advant-
age, why should I care?"
Sacharow recited his story to Judge
Samuel E. Kramer. He had been
conducting the hearing in connection
with a suit by Dr. Alfred J. Wright,
reently removed as a regional
Townsend leader. The suit asked that
Dr Townsend and Trustees of Old
Age Revolving Pensions, Ltd., be oust-
ed, and that the court require an ac-
counting of more than $1,000,000 in
organization funds. Sacharow is
counsel for Wright.

In Nearby Dearborn
Greenfield Village in Dearborn will
be the destination of the excursion

toric materials for the constructing of
the village for years. Here can be

the white steepled church, the colon-
ial style' town hall, the red brick
school house, the tavern, the country
store, the post office, the toll gate
station, the tin-type gallery and
even the blacksmith shop.
Mr. Ford has also moved to Green-
field Village some of the buildings
and equipment connected with the
inventions of Thomas A. Edison. The
original Menlo Park laboratory, the
library and the first Menlo Park fac-
tory are to be found there.
Saturday the seventh excursion wil
be held. The party will take a trip

WASHINGTON, July 21.-(IP)-An-t
xious for the safety of 1,582 Ameri-
cans in bloody Spain, the Unitedl
States government tonight directedj
two warships to move immediately in-
to Spanish waters to evacuate this
country's citizens if necessary.
The action was decided upon by
Secretary of State Hull after a'
lengthyrconference with Admiral Wil-
liam H. Standley, acting Secretary of
the Navy, who issued orders diverting
the two ships.
They are the battleship Oklahoma,
now at Cherbourg, France, as a unit
in the midshipmen's training squad-
ron, and the U. S. S. Quincy, the
navy's newest 10,000 ton cruiser, now
on a shakedown cruise to Europe.
The added safety measures were
decided upon despite diplomatic re-
ports pouring in upon the State De-
partment which carried no word of
any injury to Americans during the
recent days of strife.
The same reports, however, told of
a bloody battle yesterday between
government and rebel forces in front
of the American consulate at Vigo;
of the hoisting of American flags over
United States buildings in Madrid as
a safety measure; and of British war
vesselststanding by at two Spanish
ports to aid British and American
nationals if necessary. It was noted
also that some towns at which Amer-
icans are residing had not yet been
heard from in diplomatic dispatches.
It was presumed that the midship-
ien aboard the Oklahoma would be
transferred to the other two vessels
