VIENNA, July 25-(')-Martial
law was declared tonight in Vienna
and in at least one province, Styria,
following the killing of Chancellor
Dollfuss by Nazi putchists
ROME, July 25. - (') - War-time
military orders were given tonight by
Premier Mussolini, acting as Minister
'of War, Navy and Aviation, directing
that all military forces in the kingdom
be held in readiness for any eventual-
ity as a result of the Austrian de-
At the same time the government-
inspired press announced Italy's deep-
seated resentment against what it
termed Germany's interference in
Austria and declared the situation ex-
tremely serious.
The army and air force from Padua
north was commanded by the p'emier
to be in momentary readiness to move
across the Austrian frontier.
VIENNA, July 25. - (') - Chancel-
lor Engelbert Dollfuss was shot with-
out warning at the Federal Chancel-
lory at 12:45 p.m. today by Nazis who
entered the place disguised in the
uniforms of a Vienna regiment. He
died immediately.
Dollfuss' body was still in the Chan-
cellory at 9 p.m. when three truck-
loads of Putschists who had held the
Chancellory for several hours left
presumably to be taken to the Ger-
man border in conformity with an
agreement under which they surren-
dered unharmed other members of
the Government whom they had held
The Government members seized

invaders of the Chancellory included
Emil Fey, former Vice Chancellor.
The agreement was reached after
long negotiations in the course of
which the Heimwehr (Fascist home
guard) had threatened to attack the
Official Speaks
An official who was one of the 150
imprisoned with four Cabinet mem-
bers said that 10 men who entered
Dollfuss' office rounded up the civil
servants and cowed them in a court-
yard where they were forced to hold
up their hands.
They were told that if they tried
to move they would be shot, he said,
and then the higher officials were
locked in rooms and told that they
would be shot if they moved so much
as an eye. This group included the
Federal Press Bureau chief.
The Chancellory Building was
quickly surrounded by soldiers, Heim-
wehr men and police, but fear that
the four cabinet members would be
killed kept them from attacking.
The officials did not know that
Dollfuss was dead until Fey was re-
leased early in the evening.
During the afternoon and evening
the Putschists repeatedly defied the
troops to attck, and the government
issued several ultimatums.
Fey Appears
At 6 p.m., 12 minutes after the
expiration of the first ultimatum
which stated that an attack would
start, Fey appeared upon the bal-
cony between uniformed Putschists,
who presumably were holding revolv-
ers behind him.
"Where is Rintelen?" shouted Fey,

referring to Anton Rintelen, the min-
ister to Rome who is not wholly un-
friendly to the Nazi cause.
"Rintelen is not coming," replied
Odo Neustradeter-Steurmer, minister
of social welfare, who was acting as
spokesman for the government mem-
bers not in custody.
"We have agreed on Rintelen," said
"President Wreacha Miklas has
suspended the government powers of
all persons imprisoned in the Chan-
cellory," Neustradeter-Steurmer re-
plied angrily. "You surrender within
15 minutes or we will attack."
Meanwhile, the Heimwehr men
standing on the square were shouting
defiantly, "woe on you if anything
happens to our Fey.'
At least six men were killed (some
reports placed the number at 10) in
street and other fighting which broke
out following the putsch.
The outbreak went beyond Vienna
and fighting was reported in other

That's what little Shirley Temple seems to be saying. And why
shouldn't she? Her parents have just reached a compromise with a
Hollywood film producing company and it-is reported she will get $1,250
a week. Only 5 years old, Shirley was receiving $150 weekly for her
film wiork. Then she went on "strike" for $2,500. The company offered
$1,000. Now all; are satisfied and the "strike" is off.

Farley Scored
As 'Spoilsman',
By Vandenberg
Criticizes Postmaster For
'Crawling Into Tammany
SOUTH HAVEN, July 25. -(P) -
Listing again what he regarded as the
good as well as the bad features of the
"new deal" United States Senator Ar-
thur H. Vandenberg, addressing a
fourth congressional district rally
here today, said "The curse of both
is the aggravated trend toward po-
litical spoilsmanship."
This trend, he said, "takes the pub-
lic service and the taxpayer for a
vicious ride."
Senator Vandenberg again criti-
cized Postmaster General Farley. He
urged the postmaster general to "get
out of his mixed functions before the
conscience of the nation forces him
"We are told," said Senator Van-
denberg, "that Mr. Farley served an
ultimatum on Tammany -'you sur-
render to us or you get no jobs.' So
Tammany surrendered to Washington
for the first time since the Civil
War. So, too, Tammany will get the
plunder. This is the exact opposite of
the order of business under two pre-
vious Democratic presidents. Neither
Wilson nor Cleveland crawled under
the Tammany wig-wamn."


WASHINGTON, July 25.-(A1) -
A soft-spoken, slight young south-
erner of 31 who studied to be a law-
yer but later turned to criminal in-
vestigation is the man who ended the
bandit career of America's public
enemy No. 1 -- John Dillinger.
Melvin H. Purvis, Chicago agent
[for the department of justice, has
made good his promise to his Chief,
J. Edgar Hoover, director of the bu-
reau of criminal investigation, that
he wouldn't rest until the Indiana
desperado was-brought to justice.
Purvis had come within an eye-
lash of capturing Dillinger once be-
fore. He engineered the spectacular
raid last April on the Little Bohemia
lodge at Spider Lake, Wis., in which
Dillinger and his gang shot their
way to freedom leaving the body of
Carter Baum, a federal agent, in
their wake.
Left Sick Bed
Purvis got up from his sick bed to
go after Dillinger in Chicago. The
day before he had undergone a severe
operation on his nose, but when the
tip came that Dillinger was to attend
a movie on Chicago's north side,
against the advice of friends he went
to the scene personally to direct the
He had sworn that he would be in
on the "kill," and he was. Subjected
to bitter criticism by certain mid-
western newspapers after the escape
of Dillinger at the Little Bohemia
inn, Purvis offered to resign from the
service. Director Hoover refused to
accept his resignation, however, and
gave him a vote of confidence.
Reputed Fearless
Frail-looking in appearance, Pur-
vis is five feet, eight inches tall,
weighs 130 pounds and is single. He
is a native of Timmonsville, S. C.,
and a graduate of the University of
South Carolina.
Since joining the bureau of in-
vestigation he has had assignments in
Washington, Chicago, Birmingham,
and Oklahoma City. He has earned
the reputation of being absolutely
fearless where underworld figures are
He first attracted national atten-
tion as the man who directed the cap-

ture of Verne Sankey, the kidnaper
of Charles Boettcher II, Denver busi-
ness man, whose family paid $60,000
for his ransom. Sankey was captured
in Chicago and was returned to Sioux
Falls, S. D., where he hanged him-
self in his cell.
A few days. later Purvis caught
Gordon Alcorn, also implicated in
the Boettcher kidnaping as well as
in the abduction of Haskell Bohn of
St. Paul.
High strung and nervous, Purvis is
the type who never relaxes vigilance
until he has captured his man. Vir-
tually night and day for the past four
months he has pitted his wits against
those of Dillinger and his cohorts.
During a recent visit to headquar-
ters here he declared to friends that
he' would never give up the search
for Dillinger and expressed the con-
viction that eventually the law would
win out.

Frank D. Fitzgerald.
This announcement was made af-

Because many thousands of own-

added revenue to the State in per-

The value of this tax reduction and
tax relief to the car owner is shown
by the fact that more than 100,000.
more motor vehicles are licensed for
use this year than in 1933 and also by
the increase in gasoline tax revenue
which, it is estimated, will be $1,600,-
