Investigation Of Ohio
Mass Murder Widened.
CINCINNATI. Aug. 19.-(/P)-In-
vestigation of "mass murder" wid-
ened tonight as Assistant Prosecutor
Loyal Martin announced that Mrs.
Mary Arnold told him she believed:
her sister, Mrs. Ollie Luella Koehler,
79, who died today, "was poisoned by
Mrs. (Anna) Hahn."
Mrs. Hahn, 31-year-old Forver
housemaid, is under indictment on
first degree murder charges in the
deaths of two other elderly Cincin-
nati residents. Mrs. Koehler was ill
several weeks. Martin asked for a
post mortem examination.
Mrs. Hahn is the central figure in
an investigation of at least eleven
deaths that Prosecutor Dudley Miller
quickly described as "the biggest mass
murder in this country."
Martin said Mrs. Arnold, 95, had
informed authorities Mrs. Koehler
became ill "just after eating ice cream
given her by Mrs. Hahn. I believe
my sister -was poisoned by Mrs.

J IClosest Rivals
NEWPORT. R.I., Aug. 19.-(JP)-
The severe slump that has ruined
Don Budge's mighty tennis game ap-
peared to be waning today when he
led his three closest American rivals,
Frank Parker, Bryan (Bitsy) Grant
and Bobby Riggs, into the semi-
final round of the historic Newport
Budge, who showed a marked let-
down earlier this week when resum-
ing singles play after his brilliant
Davis Cup and European campaigns,
appeared to be three quarters out of
it when he engaged steady John Mc-
Diarmid, the Princeton University in-
structor, in the quarter finals.
The world's greatest amateur, a
ragged victory over mediocre rivals
in his three previous Casino engage-
ments, regained much of his confi-
dence during a long first set with Mc-
Diarmid and then started hitting the
ball with his usual skill and profi-

That hard drill probably prepared
Budge for tomorrow's second-last

But Not For Your Eyes
FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON, reading a good magazine is a well-earned relaxa-
tion. There is no relaxation for your eyes, howeverf, even in the best light. They
keep right on working. If the light is not right too much of your energy is used up
in the effort to see. The result is apt to be eyestrain and early fatigue, which take
away much of the enjoyment of reading
Even for occasional reading, you should have good lighting, scientifically
designed for safe and comfortable seeing. You should have light free from glare
and harsh contrasts, to protect eyesight. If your eyes are defective, good lighting
will generally aid them even more than it helps normal eyes. But good lighting
is not a substitute for the service of your eyesight specialist. Consult him at regu-
