Defense Attorney Makes
Accusation In Recount
DETROIT, Aug. 9. - (P) - Edward
P. Echlin, defense attorney in the
examination of 48 persons charged
with vote stealing in a legislative re-
count, charged today that Hallet A.
Hamlin, state's star witness, had ap-
propriated the name of the Michigan
Independent Voters league, and made
it the Independent Voters League of
Michigan, without authority to do so.
Hamlin had admitted earlier that
he received $2,200 from Elmer B. O'-
Hara, chairman of the Democratic
State Committee and one of the de-
fendants, for services of his organiza-
tion to the Democratic party in the
In earlier cross-examination, Ham-
unsaid an additional $1,800hwas still
due him for the work of the Inde-
pendent Voters League in the election,
but denied that he made the vote-
..- stealing complaint to Attorney Gen-
eral Harry S. Toy because the money
was not paid him.
The witness admitted knowing of
the alleged recount irregularities for
some time beforehe made thecom-
plaint, and conceded he had partici-
pated in the alleged frauds.
P. M. Halley, Jr., of defense coun-
sel, brought out that the bulk of
Hamlin's income since Jan.b1khad
been in witness fees and expense
allowances from the county and state
in conection with his appearances be-
fore recount investigating bodies.
Hamlin denied emphatically that
he had been promised immunity if
he would testify.
Recorder's Judge Arthur E. Gordon
said today he would convene a special
grand jury to sift charges of witness-
fixing made in connection with the

Loretta Jackson Believes
Killers Of Dickinson Had
Not 'Done Anything'
DETROIT, Aug. 9. - (P) -The as-
sertion that "I didn't think we had
done anything" wrong was made by
Loretta Jackson, testifying today in
the first degree murder trial of Wil-
liam Lee Ferris and three women
forthe slaying last June 26 of How-
ard Carter Dickinson, New York at-
While the four were hiding in Fort
Wayne, Ind., Loretta sent a telegram
to her mother in Detroit. This tele-
gram resulted in their apprehension
On direct examination today, the
young woman was asked if she ,did
not realize the telegram might result
in the police finding them. She said
she did, but was not apprehensive
because she felt she had done no
Loretta Jackson told a story of the
shooting of Dickinson similar to the
stories related by her sister Florence
and Jean Miller, the other women
defendants. She said there was no
talk amongthe defendants about rob-
bing or killing Dickinson. (Signed
confessions by the four said Dick-
inson was killed during a holdup).
Loretta said Ferris told the women
to "shut up" when they asked why
Dickinson was killed. She repeated
statements made by Florence that
Ferris was searching for "some pa-
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9. - (P) -
After declaring that ultimately con-
sumers of gas and electricity must
bear the cost of a $5,000,000 lobby"
against the Roosevelt utilities bill,
Chairman Black (Dem., Ala.) of the
senate lobby investigation today
mapped new hearings for the future.
His prediction that the foes of the
bill eventually would be shown to
have spent $5,000,000 was made in
a radio speech last night over the
Washington Evening Star Forum.
It was the latest of several de-
velopments in the utilities fight. One
was a letter produced yesterday in the
Federal Trade Commission's utilities
investigation. Dated March 31, 1931,
it was declared to have been sent
from B. C. Cobb, former chairman
of the Commonwealth Southern Cor-
poration to Frank Kent, political writ-
er for the Baltimore Sun.
"I again say," it asserted, "that

As Costs Rise
Workers Face Difficulty
In Getting Food; Drive
Against Church Pushed
BERLIN, Aug. 9. - (P) - A defic-
iency in certain German food sup-
plies was described by an author-
itative source today as a possibility,
with a definite shortage of fats and
fruits already existing and with vege-
table crops in doubt.
The authority said staples, like
bread, grain and meat, were in a
good position, but that prices were
rising steadily and that the working-
man was having difficulty getting
what he wanted.
The government policy appeared to
be to restrain prices of staple com-
modities, iletting prices for foods
which could be classified as luxuries
rise as a sort of disciplinary measure.
New Aspects Seen
While the Reich press turned again
to "other nations' horrors and riots"
and hailed liquidation of the Danzig-
Poland customs dispute as a victory
for the German cause, the Nazi drive
against "state enemies" presented
several new aspects.
After yesterday's dissolution of
numerous Stahlhelm (Steel Helmt)
veterans groups, the local Steel Hel-
met organization at Weidar "dis-
News of dissolution of the steel
helmet unit at Buenos Aires also
reached the Berlin organization.
A priest named Reckman was sen-
tenced to four months' imprisonment,
and a Catholic chaplain named Holt-
kamp to two months at Gladbeck be-
cause "they tore Red notices against
political Catholicism from billboards."
A monk Isidor of the Franciscan
monastery at Waldbreitbach, center
of one of the numerous money smug-
gling trials, was arrested because "he
as leader of 'the institute for feeble-
minded persons ordered some in-
habitants to destroy notices or paint
A measure against the Catholic
Workers' Association was taken by
the city of Wattenscheid, which an-
nounced that work orders would be
given only to members of the Ger-
man labor front.
COUZENS REPORTED BETTER
DETROIT, Aug. 9.-(Al)--Mayor
Frank Couzens said today he had re-
ceived word from Rochester, Minn.,
that his father, Senator James Couz-
ens, had passed the danger point in

underwent his third operation within
a month Wednesday.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 9. -(P)
- Twelve years ago a rugged veteran
of the major leagues decided to call
it quits, wrapped up his ailing arm
in a sweater and walked out of the
St. Louis Cardinals' park.
The other day the hurler, now
45 and weighing 270 pounds, walked
to the mound in Nashville's ball
park and began throwing a "mighty
small ball" down the slot in batting,
Not even the ever-enthusiastic local
fans knew that the middle-aged giant
out there was Fred Toney, in new
shoes and a drab gray uniform, look-
ing much different from the Fred
Toney who pitched for the Reds, Cubs,
Giants, and Cards from 1915 to 1924.
Baseball fans remember Fred as the
man who pitched a 10-inning, no-
hit, no-run game in 1917 to give the
Reds a 1 to 0 victory over the Cubs
moundsman who allowed but a single
safety. That year Toney won 24
games and New York bought him the
next season. He aided materially in
winning a pennant for John Mc-
Graw's Giants in 1921.
Fred Toney retired from baseball
in 1924. He has been living on a farm
within 20 miles of Nashville. The
game hewatched here recently was
the first he'd seen in 10 years.
But the interest in the game that
brought him fame has been reawak-
ened in Fred Toney.IHe hopes to join
some club as coach, where he can

Steve O'Neill Gets Second Big
Chanice Much. As He Got First
CLEVELAND, Aug. 9.- (P) - If
Steve O'Neill fills his stop-gap role
as manager of the Indians as well
as he filled his first "emergency"
baseball assignment 25 years ago, the
job ought to be his for a long, long
It was in 1910 that the heavily built,
good natured Irishman, on vacation
from his coal-mining job, went visit-
in' to his brother's place up at El-
"Just the man I wanta see," greet-
ed the brother. "Both my catchers
are on the shelf with injuries and
I can't spend any money for another
to finish out the season, so get in
there and do your stuff!"
So Stephen Francis O'Neill, at 18,
became an ex-coal miner. He fin-
ished the season flashily enough to.

Connie shipped him off to Worces-
ter, Mass., early next spring. In one
more year he'd reached the big time,
as a member of the Cleveland In-
dians, but it wasn't until 1915 that he
became the Tribe's first string
He was boss of the catcher's box
here until 1924, when he was traded
to the Red Sox. A year later he
went to the Yanks, then in 1926 to To-
ronto as coach for Dan Howley. He
was back here as catcher-coach in
1927 and '28, then back to Toronto
as manager, his teams finishing first,
fourth and fourth.
Steve came back to Ohio as coach
of Toledo under Bib Falk in 1933, and
managed that team part of '33 and
'34. Then he returned to Cleveland
last winter as coach.
Always popular here, Steve has the
reputation of being the best plate-
blocker-offer the Indians ever had.

Gear Jams, Forcing Pilots
To Bring Ship Down At
NEWARK, N. J., Aug. 9. - P) -
While police, firemen and ambu-
lances waited, a crippled transport
plane was brought to a thrilling, but
,afe landing at Newark airport today.
The ship's retractable landing gear
had jammed, and efforts to fix it
while the plane was enroute from
Washington to Newark had been un-
High over Baltimore, Co-Pilot Al-
bert Duke had made a hazardous
climb over the wing, found that the
right wheel was out of line and made
vain efforts to remedy the trouble.
Duke and the pilot took off from
Washington at 6:13 this morning
and a warning light informed them
of the difficulty.
For 20 minutes the large plane
circled Newark airport, persons on
the ground watching it tensely. Duke
and Pilot L. W. Willey had radioed
Newark to prepare for an emergency
landing, and eight pieces of fire ap-
paratus, ambulances bearing city hos-
pital doctors and nurses, and police
were at the scene.

He caught all seven games of the
1920 world series in which the In-

for Stanley Coveleskie's unique rec-

that series in which he got by with

ST. PAUL, Minn. Aug. 9.-( P)-
Paul Bunyan, legendary figure of the
north woods, had better look to his
laurels or Bronko Nagurski, Chicago
Bears fullback, a lad raised in Bun-
yan's own bailiwick, may better his
feats of strength.
From International Falls, Minn.,
comes the story of how Nagurski,
coming upon the scene of a traffic
accident, lifted the truck which was
pining down two victims, and pulled
them free. One of the victims was
so badly injured that he died.
This is not the first time that the
former all-America tackle's feats of
strength had set the north country
When he was 15 years old the
Bronk had the reputation of being
the strongest "man" in the sawmills
of his home town. Big and powerful
even at that age, he could outdo
local lumberjacks in feats of strength.
Incidentally, he was only 20 when
he ended his college grid career at
Gopher football fans still talk
about how the "Nag" played tackle
and fullback for half a season with
two broken vertebrae. X-ray pictures
clearly showed the breaks and uni-
versity physicians marveled at his
strength and stamina.
Later as a professional player with
the Chicago Bears, Nagurski re-
ceived a bad charley horse at the end
of the 1933 season. The Bears were
going on a tour and Nagurski was
sent home to recuperate for a few

For Third Trip
ALAMEDA, Calif., Aug. 9.-(IP)
Under the command of a new skip-
per, the Pan American Clipper ship
was groomed today for a flight to tiny
Wake Island, 5,000 miles away.
The big 19-ton flying boat, blaz-
ing a trail for proposed passenger
service between California and the
Orient, was scheduled to take-off
at 6 p.m. Eastern Standard time.
Capt. R. O. D. Sullivan will be
the skipper on the flight - the third
of its series of trans-Pacific hops.
He was second in command under
Capt. Dewin C. Musick when the first
two flights were made. Capt. Musick
now is in the east on business.
As in the previous flights, the crew
of the four-motored plane will com-
pile radio, meteorological and me-
chanical data for use when the trans-
Pacific passenger service is launched
Three weeks have been allowed for
the flight and return to California.

Troops Ready For
More French Riots
PARIS, Aug. 9.- (A) -- With troops
ready but out of sight, the French
government today ordered police
forces to clean up agitation centers.
Premier Pierre Laval ordered the
prefects of all France's 86 depart-
ments to confer with him immediate-
ly. It was the first such conference
in the history of the French republic.
Somewhat easier attitude prevailed
as the laborers in the government
arsenals at Toulon and Brest went
back to work and the French line
employes at Le Havre voted to end
The object of the prefects' con-
ference was understood to be the'
development of a more favorable at-
titude on the part of government em-
ployes toward the pay cuts which the
government deems necessary for rea-
sons of economy.
