Nazis Slacken
Drive Against
State Enemies
Communism, Especially In
The United States, Will
Be Treated Next
Press Slaps Others
Say Other Nations Should
Clean Their Own Houses
Before Bothering Nazis
BERLIN, July 30. - (-') - Naziism,
paying heed to foreign opinion, slack-
ened its campaign against "state
enemies" today, and turned its at-
tention instead to Communism-es-
pecially in the United States.
A high scource said Nazi leaders, in
council with Reichfuehrer Adolf Hit-
ler, decided to curb ultra-radical ac-
tivities against Jews, "political Ca-
tholicism" and other "menaces" be-
cause of the reaction abroad to the
drive.
"Prompted Press' Speaks

News Of The World As Illustrated In Associated Press Pictures

The press, apparently prompted by
the propaganda ministry, advised im-
mediately and unanimously that oth-
er nations should clean their own
houses before paying so much at-
tention to the Reich."
Hitler's own newspaper, the Voel-
kischer Beobachter, carried dis-
patches and photographs in connec-
tion with the tearing of the Ger-
man flag from the liner Bremen at
New York Friday and the Seventh
Communist Internationale at Mos-
cow.
Two photographs of strikers clash-
ing at Sioux Falls, S. D., were dis-
played on the front page, and anoth-
er of a Negro lynching at Fort Laud-
erdale, Fla., on an inside page.
'American Turbulence'
The caption over the strike picture
proclaimed:
"Workers at Peace in Germa'y-
turbulence abroad."
Other newspapers advised the
United States to take care of its
Communists as it will, but warned:
"America has a duty to prevent
them from disturbing friendly rela-
tions between the United States and
Germany."
While the Communists of other
countries held the center of the stage,
a high source said a national police
campaign against individual acts of
terrorism was planned behind the
scenes, with any further pressure
against Jews, Bolshevism and other
"reactionaries" to be in the state's
hands.
Incidents Still Appear
Isolated incidents, however, con-
tinued to orop up. Three more
Catholic youth organizations at Ba-
den were dissolved and three new
cases of discrimination against Jew-
ish lawyers also were reported.
Jewish lawyers were forbidden to
appear before labor courts at Madge-
burg, and thedistrict court of Char-
lottenburg ruled them out. Baden
authorities ruled that anyone engag-
ing a Jewish lawyer and then dis-
continuing his service must pay an
Aryan taking over the case a double
fee.
The Reich finance ministry ordered
employes to report before Sept. 1
whether they are or have ever been
Free Masons or members of similar
secret societies. An affirmative ans-
wer, the order said, would be weighed
against any promotions.
Evidence that the Nazi leaders
were putting a brake on the cam-
paign, however, was seen in the re-
moval of "don't buy from Jews"
stickers from Jewish shops. Jews also
were ordered to be considered for
military enlistment if they had only
two Jewish grandparents.

Formosa Is Hit
ByTyphoon;No
Casualties Yet
Severe Property Damage
Reported As Battering
Wind Sweeps Island
TOKIO, July 30. - (P) - A typhoon
battered the island of Formosa today,
inflicting severe property damage as
it roared on toward China.
Communications were disrupted,
preventing an accurate estimate of
the extent of the damage, but no loss
of life was reported immediately.
Although there was comparatively
little rainfall, the wind proved par-
ticularly destructive. The central
section of the island was reported
suffering extensively. The typhoon
passed from Formosa at 5 a.m.
An unestimated number of houses
was destroyed in closely populated
areas, and banana and sugar plan-
tations were damaged seriously. Train
operations were halted. Communica-
tion lines fell in many places.
The typhoon-the third this season
and one of the worst ever to strike
the island ,about 800 miles south of
Japan off the coast of China -
plunged the capital city of Taihoku
into darkness today after the rising
winds damaged the power house.
The city of Shinchiku, which ex-
perienced two disastrous earthquakes
earlier this year, also was hard hit.
LUZON ALSO HIT
MANILA, P. I., July 30. - () -
A typhoon, rains, wind and high
tides caused damage throughout
northern Luzon island today for the
second successive day.
Heavy damage to roads, bridges
and crops was reported in the north-
ern provinces. One drowning was re-
ported. High tides again flooded the
downtown sections of Manila.
The small inter-island steamer
Venus, disabled in yesterday's ty-
phoon, arrived with 38 passengers in
tow of the steamship Bohol,
'Fans' Riot For
Admission To
Peoria's Trial
Trial Of Gerald Thompson
For Sex Murder Brings A
Mob Of Women
PEORIA, Ill., July 30. - () - A
riotous crowd of about 2,000 men and
women, clamoring for admission to
he sex murder trial of Gerald Thomp
son, tore a door from the Peoria
county courthouse today.
The mob, mostly women demanding
to hear the spicy testimony of the
trial, broke through lines of special
police reserves and surged to the north
side of the building.
With shouts the men and women
smashed the glass panels of the door
and finally ripped it from the hinges.
Several persons were slightly in-
jured in the melee. Women's dresses
were torn and police, after dispersing
the rioters, picked up two battered
wrist watches and other articles of
jewelry.
A similar disturbance occurred yes-
terday when the door of the south
entrance of the court building was
ripped away by angry would-be spec-
tators.'
Many of those who took part in
today's demonstration had been wait-
ing outside the courthouse since 6
a.m., three hours before the conven-
ing of court for the start of defense

evidence.
The disturbance took place at the
entrance through which Thompson,
on trial for the brutal slaying of pretty
Virginia Hallmark, 19-year-old cafe
hostess, is brought into the court-
house from the county jail across the
street.
There were frequent threats of mob
violence and lynching while Thomp-
son was held in jail pending his trial.
Thompson, a pasty-faced youth
whose defense is based on a plea of
congenial insanity and Sex aberra-
tions, caem into court today with
two more guards added to the cordon
of four who ordinarily accompany
him.
A scratch from a rosebush thorn,
resulting in lockjaw, was fatal to Mrs.
Albert Chappell, 27, of Dallas, Tex.

Finishing touches are being put on the TC-14, believed to be the world'sk largest non-rigid dirigible, at
Scott Field, Belleville, Ill., the army's lighter-than-air flying base. The ship, which will make its first test
flight early in August, is 235 feet long and is being built at an estimated cost of $200,000. It carries a crew of
ten men.

Japanese Say
Bandits Have
Looted Trains
Train Robbers Supposed
To Have Cremated Jap
Soldier On Train
TOKIO, July 30. -(P) - Manchou-
kuan bandits were reported by the
Rengo (Japanese) news agency today
to have held up the Hsinking-Tumen
express and slain a number of pas-
sengers.
Dispatches said the bandits de-
railed the night express last night
about 50 miles east of Hsinking, cap-
ital of the Japanese-sponsored state
of Manchoukuo and deliberately
sought out Japanese passengers for
death. ,
Of the 11 or 12 slain, the Rengo
correspondent at Hsinking reported,
one was a Russian and, four were
Manchoukuans, apparently mistaken
for Japanese.
Sergeant Imamura of the indepen-
dent guard corps of the Kwantung
(Japanese continental) army was the
first victim of the bandits, the cor-
respondent said, and after he was
shot the slayers burned his body and
danced around it, shouting: "Down
with the Japanese."
An unestimated number of persons
were wounded, among them five Jap-
anese and three Manchoukuans.
Twelve guards were reported, kid-
naped after attempting to beat off the
bandits. Japanese and Manchoukuan
troops hastened out in an effort to
rescue the prisoners and capture the
slayers.
The vernacular press meanwhile re-
ported the kidnapings by bandits in
inner Mongolia three weeks ago of

Army TestsLatest
'Mystery Ray'; To
Detect Ships At Sea
FORT MONMOUTH, Highlands, N.
J. - W) - Double details of military
police paced outside the army reser-
vation today while officers, amid ut-
most secrecy, studied a new "mystery
ray" said to be capable of detecting
the presence of a ship 50 miles at sea
through fog and darkness.
Signal corps technicians declined to
confirm reports that they already
had begun a series of nightly tests
designed to demonstrate the ray's ef-
fectiveness in spotting not only ships
but airplanes at high altitudes.
Visitors were rigorously excluded
from the fort and from Navesink
lighthouse nearby. There was no
sign of unusual activity save the pres-
ence of a large portable searchlight
mounted on a motor truck and parked
on the lighthouse grounds.
First hint of the experiments
leaked out through a bulletin of the
bureau of lighthouses containing in-
structions to mariners.
Signal corps men were silent, but
officers in kindred branches ventured
unofficially the opinion that the in-
vention might "revolutionize" coast
and air defense.
Neither Lt. Col. William Blair, in
charge of the signal corps labora-
tories here, nor general headquarters
at Washington would discuss the in-
vention. Other sonic devices for lo-
cating and setting the- firing range
on airplanes have been conducted by
the ordnance department at Aberdeen,
Md.

CHEAP AT HALF THE PRICE
Refusing to pay an alleged 25-cent

The home of William Johnson of Lancaster, 0., became a mass of
debris when it was caught in the turbulent waters of Hocking river
which caused one delath and property damage estimated at $1,000,000.
These pictures show the house just before the wall of water hit it, and
a moment later as it tumbled into the stream. Neighbors rescued the
family.
Medical Society Summarizes
The Life History O A Cancer

In the preceding articles the es-
sential facts about the causes of can-
cer, its varieties and distribution, have
been presented. It is now possible
to summarize the life history of a
cancer.
A cancer begins by the lawless
growth and multiplication of a cell or
group of cells belonging to the human
body. From the practical standpoint,
chronic irritation is the most im-
portant cause of this wild growth. As.
it grows the cancer may produce an
open sore, or an elevated irregular
mass, or a contracted hard area. This
great variation in appearance of a
cancer is due to the kinds of cells
which happen to be growing.
For a time the cancer is a purely
local condition. Unlike the less dan-
gerous benign tumors, it does not en-
large simply by pushing back the sur-
rounding normal tissues. The cancer"
has the ability actually to grow into
the neighboring structures. The can-
cer cells insinuate themselves into thej
most slender spaces between -fibres
and cell sand thus infiltrate and de-
stroy the healthy tissues.{
The best chance to cure a cancer
is in the early stage of its growth,
while it is still a local disease. Curet
can be accomplished only by com-
plete surgical removal, or, in properly
selected cases, by killing the cancer'
cells with radium or X-rays.
If not diagnosed and treated in thisj
early favorable stage, two serious de-
velopments may occur. In the course
of time the local growth may be so
extensive that complete removal is
impossible. Or cancer cells may find

in the body. There they may grow
into new tumors like the original one.
The medical term for these secondary
or daughter tumors is "metastases."
When daughter tumors have de-
veloped the chance for cure is very
greatly reduced, for now one must
deal also with them. This explains
why it is necessary to discover the
disease as soon as possible.
