To Drain Pond
For Victims Of
Hooded Legion
Prosecutor Declares More
Bodies Are Concealed
In Sink Holes
DETROIT, July 24.-()-The mill
pond near Pinckney, Mich., near the
spot where the body of a slain Negro
was found, probably will be drained,
beginning Saturday, in a search for
the bodies of possible additional vic-
tims of the Black Legion; Prosecutor
Duncan C. McCrea announced today.
McCrea said Wayne and Livingston
county authorities were ready to or-
der the work begun as soon as per-
mission is received from the Ford
Motor Co., owner of the property.
Several sink holes in the marshy land
around the pond may be dragged.
The prosecutor said that both Day-
ton Dean, confessed Black Legion
slayer, and James Roy Lorance, who
is charged with participation in the
"thrill slaying" of SilasColeman, had
declared "Colonel" Harvey Davis told
them the night riding band disposed
of several bodies in the pond.
Davis is charged with Lorance and
three others with shooting Coleman,
the Negro hod carrier whose body was
found in a swamp on the pond's bord-
ers' in 1935, to provide "a little ex-
citement" for a Black Legion drinking
"Davis told me the organization had
disposed of several people in the sink
holes there," Dean said today. "When
Coleman ran into the swamp, we
thought he had dropped into one of
the holes."
Dean declared that two weeks be-
fore Charles A. Poole was. shot to
death in the roadside "execution"
May 12 which brought exposure of the
Black Legion ,he and Davis had con-
sidered taking Poole's body to the

however," the assistant secretary
said. "His voice was weak at times
but then again it came in so strongly
that there was no doubt that he was
his normal self. On the whole I
think we had a pretty good connec-
"Bowers assured me over and over'
that he was safe and comfortable
and that the only difficulty with him
was that until the call went through
he had been unable to communicate
with the outside world. He had spent
most of his time keeping in touch
with happenings in Spain by listening
to his radio."
Bowers did not mention any short-
age of food or any other difficulties
that might contribute to his personal
inconvenience," Carr said.
The difficulty in getting the call
through to Fuenterrabia was ascribed
by Carr to the fact that there are
only two long distance telephone lines
in Spain and that on both of these
the government had assumed that as
soon as responsible officials discovered
that Washington was trying to reach
its ambassador every effort was made
to complete the call.
The American consulate at Barce-
lona earlier had established definitely
that one of its Spanish employes was

slain there while on a mission of
mercy in an automobile flying the
American flag. His companion, a
British subject, also was killed..
At about the same time the Amer-
ican consul at Seville reported to the4
state department that the large Span-1
ish city was in the hands of a fas-
cist military group led by General
Gonzalo Queipo De Llano, who seized
the government there last Saturday.
His dispatch was sent from Gibral-
tar to which it was brought by the
British warship Shamrock, which also
conveyed 27 Americans from Seville
to the safety of Gibraltar.
The report of the consul, Charles
Bay, the first diplomatic dispatch
concerning the situation in Seville
to be received by the state depart-
ment said:
"General Gonzalo Quipo De Llano
seized the government in Seville last
Saturday and after two days con-
tinuous action combined infantry,
cavalry and artillery succeeded in
putting down all revolutionists. All
the civil guard and most all the as-
sault guard joined the movement.
"Sunday night a bomber from Ma-
dridi dropped 25 or 30 bombs on the
airport, barracks and munition plant
in Seville and two planes returned

8 Speed Boats
Get Final Tests
For Cup Race
George Reis, Winner Of
Event For 3 Years, Tunes
Up Ancient El Legarto
-(I)-As George Reis worked fever-
ishly to reassemble the motor of his
14-year-old El Lagarto, seven other
highly tuned speed boats went
through their final tests today in
preparation for the renewal of the
gold cup race over Lake George's
triangular course tomorrow.
Reis, veteran Bolton Landing and
Pasadena, Calif., sportsman, dismant-
'led the motor of the boat which has
won the coveted trophy the last three
years to determine whether it had
baen tampered with when somebody
entered the boat house through the
double padlocked door.
"She'll be ready for the starting
gun," declared Reis as he and his
Wall Street broker-mechanic reas-
sembled the new 500-horsepower mo-
tor, a modern adaptation of an air-
plane engine worked out by the El
Lagarto's owner in a year and a half
of experimentation and tests.
Reis said there had been no evi-
dence of vandalism. He had torn the
the motor down, however, as a pre-
cautionary measure to learn if any-
one inadvertently or otherwise had
damaged it.
The boat had been put through itj
final preliminary tuneup yesterday
and pronounced ready for the 33rd
revival of the classic.
El Lagarto has won the cup the
past three years, at Detroit, in 1933
and on Reis' home water of Lake
George in 1934 and 1935.
Meantime, clear skies and ideal
boating conditions were forecast for
the gruelling 90-mile test in Ameri-
ca's blue ribbon speedboat classic af-
ter a day of heavy rain that prevent-
ed final tuneups and put a damper on
last minute preparations.
Seven boats representing the most
modern developments in marine en-
gineering are scheduled to compete
for the the 32-year-old silver urn
which is insured for $17,000, and
end El Lagarto's domination.
Reis' boat still weights 3,400 pounds
in spite of new rules which permit
them as little as 1,400 pounds
MILWAUKEE, July 24.-(:)-M.
Fromme Barbour of Cincinnati, O.,
was elected national commander of
the Disabled American Veterans of
the World War at their sixteenth an-
nual convention here today. He
succeeds Colonel Marvin A. Harlan
of El Paso, Texas.

Mr. Herb MacDonough asks me to
explain in detail the procedure for
prefogging film. This is a method of
increasing the speed of a film for
work in poor light.
To my knowledge there has never
been published any reliable informa-
Licn on this subject for the simple
reason that every person seems to get
different results. It is a subject that
has great possibilities however and
is worth considering.
It is based on the theory that the
sensitive salts in the film have inertia
and it is possible to start the reac-
tion before the picture is taken. For
example if the correct exposure would
be one second the first fraction of the
second will be wasted in starting. A
more uconcrete analogy would be that
of a ball resting on top of a hill sev-
eral feet from the beginning of the
downgrade. When you prefog the
film, you move the ball to the edge
of the hill. and then when the picture
is taken it takes only a slight push
to start it rolling down.
Practice Is Indefinite
That is the theory, but the practice
is rather indefinite. In the first
place it is hard to find the edge of
the hill and most attempts to pre-
fog result in no noticeable effect or
the ball is pushed right over the
edge and the resulting picture shows
fog. Kip Ross in his book "Candid
Photography" recommends prefog-
ing only in the respect that he
doesn't condemn it.
To prefog a film you can expose
it to the darkroom safe light before
loading it into the camera, or you
can make a short exposure just be-
fore taking the picture. Stand very
close to an evenly illuminated sur-
face, the side walk would do, and trip
the shutter at a very high speed
with the lens stopped down. Be sure
that the camera is not focused on the
surface. The amount of prefogging
required will have to be determined
by experiment, as I have no definite
information available.
I believe that hypersensitizing of
film with ammonia is to be preferred,
although I have long ago given up
both methods for actual work as
they are much too unreliable. In ex-
perimenting with films for various
purposes I often try prefogging and
hypersensitization but in my actual
work of candid photography I never
resort to them because it is very im-
portant to know just how much ex-
posure has actually been given be-
fore developing the film and these
methods are not at all consistent.
How Much Exposure
Mr. MacDonough's second question
is that infernal "how high is up?"
question. It is almost impossible to
tell you how much exposure would be
required under normal mazda room
lights, because they vry so much
that in a few cases a twenty-fifth
at f.4.5 would be sufficient and often
the so called normal room requiresa
half second at f.1.5 which is equal to
about 90 to 100 times as much.
The only real definite information
that I can give you on this subject
is that you can give about one third
as much exposure than that recom-
mended by any reliable exposure
meter and still get some pictures. And
incidentally, if you do much mazda
work there are reliable meters on
the market for almost any price,
starting at seventy five cents, and
even the worst meter ever built will
be better than the average man's
blind guess. It is possible to under-
expose many times more than this,
but standard development could not
be used. It 'might be to your ad-
vantage to play around with pre-
fogging, and I would like to see the
results that any of you get, so that
I can compile more data on the sub-
ject. But I would not advise you to
count on it to any extent. You will be
working on the underexposure side

anyway and if it has any effect let
it make your film better instead of
help to just get the picture.
Slower Shots Needed
It seems that most of the average
snapshotters who are working with
shutters that run no slower than a
twenty-fifth of a second have for-
gotten that their cameras are
equipped with a setting marked "B"
which stands for bulb. With the
shutter set to this point the shutter
is open as long as you hold the lever
or cable down. Many of the indoor
shots that failed so badly could have
been saved if the operator had set
his camera on a solid support and
given a very short bulb, perhaps a
tenth of a second would have been
enough. Get over the idea that
everything has to be taken at a
twenty-fifth,, and you will start to
get more and more pictures. Oh!
You don't have to feel so bad about
it. I may be bawling you out now,
but I well remember the first time I
rap an f.4.5 camera, and in'those days
wel didn't have fast films,
