America1 Anuto Manufacturers
To Be Hit By Japanese Curb
Major League Standings
TOKIO, Aug. 9. - P) - A cabinetr
decision made it likely today thatf
considerable interests of American
automobile manufacturers in Japan
would be subjected to a system ofl
rigid government regulation because<
of the army's determination- to con-.
trol industry of vital importance to7
its military program.
The cabinet approved unanimously1
the draft of an automotive industry
control law for presentation to parlia-t
ment early in 1936.<
. If passed it would affect the status
and business prospects of assembly
plants of the Ford Motor Co. at Yoko-
hama and General Motors at Osaka,t
where American companies have in-t
vested millions of dollars.
Gen. Senjuro Hayashi, minister of
war, urging the cabinet to approve1
the bill, stressed the vital role of the
automotive industry to the Japanese
Empire's defense dispositions.
Automobiles would be the secondl
large American industry in Japan tot
suffer government control owing to
military importance. Japan's pe-
troleum, control law has been affect-i
ing seriously the Standard Vacuum
Co. and has been subject to Japanese

CHICAGO, Aug. 9. - (P) - On the
basis of what prosecutors termed
one of the strongest chains of circum-
stantial evidence in their experience
Mandeville W. Zenge, twenty-six-
year-old Missouri carpenter, was re-
ported indicted today by the grand
jury for the mutilation murder of
his rival, Dr. Walter J. Bauer.
Assistant State's Attorneys Charles
S. Dougherty and Edwin J. Spiro in-
dicated the true bill, voted after the
grand jury had heard four additional
witnesses, would be returned Monday.
Zenge continued to maintain his
stoical calm and steadfast protesta-
tions of innocence.
Shortly before the grand jury's ac-
tion became public, William Leinert,
a cab driver, testified before the grand
jury. Leinert was seized with Zenge
48 hours after Bauer died from a
crude operation. Prosecutors said
Leinert's testimony was "satisfac-

Of Meteors Near
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9.--(P) -
Sparks will fly when the earth, ram-
bling along its orbit at 19 miles a
second, goes through a cloud of ce-
lestial dust this weekend.
This cosmic cloud, an oval ring
whose long diameter is several billion
miles, is whirling at some 50 miles a
The result of the contact will be ce-
lestial sparks. It is the richest an-
nual display of showers of "shooting
stars," the perseid meteors.
Persons who stay up after the set-
ting of the moon - that's after mid-
night - may expect to see 60 or 70,
meteors an hour. Saturday, Sunday
and Monday nights are expected to
be the best showers this year.
Look to the north for them. They

stelaltion of Perseus.

BERLIN, Aug. 9. - RI) - An order
)ublishedNby the Peasant leader for
the Free State of Brunswick indicated
oday that Nazi policy may now be
:efinitely directed at depriving the
Jew of doing business with Gentiles.
Hitherto, Nazidom has maintained
that the Jew was not to be interfered
Gustav Giesecke, the Brunswick
Peasant leader, issued an order de-
"Whoever as a German Peasant
engages in trade with the Jew, or
>therwise maintains a connection with
him, commits treason and to his blood
ives comfort to the deadly enemy of
he German people, the Jew."
Giesecke said that he would re-
nove from positions inhthe Nutritive
Guild any found guilty of, dealing
with the Jews and instructed sub-
leaders to report on farmers' com-
mercial relations with Jews.
The ultimate goal of Nazi state-
raft, is, if possible, to eliminate the
Jews altogether from Germany. Julius.
Streicher, and other anti-Semitic
leaders, leave no doubt as to that.
There are numerous considerations,
however, which prevent an immediate
realization of this "totality" program.
For instance, Jewish business is still
so vital a factor that the immediate
elimination of the Jew in commercial
moncerns would draw in its wake the
dismissal of thousands of Aryan
Germans, turning from the worries
of Jew baiting, were cheered by Gov-

CLEVELAND, Aug. 9.-(P)-Lou
N. Bloom, president of the Northeast-

late today that a meeting of the ex-
ecutive committee would be called for
either tomorrow or Sunday to investi-
gate why Jesse Owens, Ohio State
athletic star, is receiving pay from
the Ohio Legislature as an honorary
page when the Legislature is not in
Bloom said he believed that if Ow-
ens is receiving pay from the Legisla-
ture without working for it his am-
ateur standing is in jeopardy.'
At the meeting, Bloom said, the en-
tire matter would be investigated. He
said Owens would be asked to ap-
pear before the body.
Earlier in New York Dan Ferris,
national secretary of the A. A. U.,
ruled that Owens' amateur athletic
standing would be jeopardized "if
Owens did not actual work in the Ohio

Proposed In January
President Roosevelt recommended
t last January to secure "the men,
women and children of the nation
against certain hazards and vicissi-
udes of life."
The Senate's calm aproval of the
igantic measure today was in strik-
ng contrast to the bill's long and
2ontroversial course. The only point
at issue was the Clark amendm'ent
to exclude private pension plans, and
even its author, Senator Bennett C.
Clark, (Dem., Mo.), acquiesced in its
Administration leaders expressed a
oelief that the striking out of the
Clark amendment removed one of
.he major constitutional hazards from
,he bill. But there were still many
nembers of Congress who forecast
that part or all of it would be in-
validated by the Supreme Court.
The section most frequently -chal-
lenged on Constitutional grounds was
,hat authorizing the creation of a
nationwide old age pension fund by
the levying of a 3 per cent tax on
,he salaries of the workers up to $3,-
3000 a year.
Fifty Billions By 1980
This fund, which by 1980 is esti-
:nated to reach the, total of almost
X50,000,000,000 is expected to provide
pensions for retired workers of 65
gears 'and older up td $85 a month.
To supplement this system, the
?ederal government would offer
;rants of $15 a month, to be matched
ay the states, for all needy aged not
;aken care of under the contributory
'ystem. Similar grants would be made
or needy blind, regardless of age.
The government also would levy
1 3 per cent payroll tax against em-
>loyers of eight or more persons out
f which deductions can be made up
'o 90 per cent for payments to state
unemployment insurance systems.
