TALLAHASSEE, Fla., July 20.-(A)
-Unidentified white men took two
Negro youths from the county jail,
four blocks from the Florida capitol,
and shot them to death early today.
The Negroes, Richard Hawkins and
Ernest Ponder, each about 18, were
held on a charge of stabbing Po-
liceman V. F. Kelly Sunday when he
attempted to question them about
breaking into a store. Kelly is in a
serious condition at a hospital.
"This was not a lynching-it was
murder," said Gov. Fred P. Cone
when he learned of the case. "I'm
going to prosecute anybody we get to
the limit of the law."
Sheriff Frank Stoutamire said four
men, wearing paper sacks over their
heads, forced night Police Sergt.
Harry Fairbanks to accompany them
to the county jail.
Fairbanks said the four men en-
tered police headquarters about 3
a.m., poked a gun to his back and
S"'We want the jail keys and we
don't want any foolishness.'
"I got up and gave them to them."
He said the men forced him to
accompany them to the jail, open the
six doors necessary to get from the
outside to the cells. Then they tied
his arms and gagged him, and left
him locked in a cell block.
Inventor Of Curve
CHESTER, N. J., July 20.-(AP)-
William (Billy) Dee, 73, who often
told how he fooled opposing batsmen
with what he called the first curve
ball in baseball history, died today.
A sandlot pitcher, Dee said he
threw the first curve 56 years ago,
purely by accident. He was tossing
a few fast ones when the seam on
the ball cover tore, and Dee's finger
caught in it. The result, he said,
was an amazing outcurve.
Practice enabled him to throw a
curve without a torn seam.
Dee pitched for 21 years, but was
too small for the big leagues.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 20.-(AP)
-James Phinney Baxter, III, 44-year-
old international authority on naval
affairs, tonight was named the 10th
president of Williams College.
A Harvard professor and master of
that university's Adams House, he
succeeds his intimate friend, Dr. Ty-

Dennis H. Cooke, professor of school
administration at the George Pea-
body College, said that the demand
has arisen for more centralized con-
trol over all divisions of educational
He stressed, however, that all adap-
tions in centralization should be made
within the limits of educational ob
"It is also desirable," Dr. Cooke
continued, "to keep education out of
partisan politics. Education must be
independent from general political
lineups and affiliations."
"Schools belong to the people, but
this does not give a local board of ed-
ucation license to use the system for
its own advantage and the advantage
of relatives and friends," Dr. Cooke
stated in closing.
A discussion of the report of the
committee on resolutions of the rep-
resentative assembly of the National
Education Association was presented
at the morning meeting of the con-
ference by Dr. William G. Carr, secre-
tary of the Educational Policies Com-

Of Next Season
NEW YORK, July 20.-0)-Sum-
mner sales of 1937 offer some of the.
best values the fashion world has had
A little cash plus intelligent shop-
ping will produce exceedingly smart
clothes to freshen a late summer
wardrobe-and be useful next year.
The secret lies -in buying standard
things and adding a little "dated
nonsense" to stamp them with the
season's chic. At summer's close the
nonsense can be discarded.
White clothes and accessories havel
been very chic this year and are one
of the best buys of the season. A
short-sleeved white redingote of crisp
acetate suiting, worn over a darker
frock or foundation, makes a smart
cool costume for town. White linen
suits combining frock and jacket and
an extra white sports frock are
other valuable late summer additions.
One of the best July fashion in-
vestments is a two-piece suit frock,
which is just as good in the country
as in town. New chiffon linens, hop-
sackings and rayon weaves are used
in this season's versions. They come
in nearly all the light shades includ-
ing dusty pink, light blue and natural
color. Wedgewood blue and cin-
namon brown are two of the smartest
ahd most useful hues, since they look
well with white or dark accents.
Another good investment is a,
bright printed pique house coat, tail-
ored enough to wear on the beach,
or one of dotted swiss, frilly enough
to be worn for dinner at home on hot#
A few of the one-piece frocks,
which are selling all over the country
from two dollars up, will be useful
wardrobe additions for the woman
who is summering in a small town.
Cottons and rayons woven with
stripes and small bright colored fig-
ures on white make good frocks for
the country club or an informal af-
ternoon of bridge.
When it comes to evening clothes,
the canniest shoppers are concen-
trating on cotton or chiffon. The
first is youthful, nonchalant and in-
expensive; the second may do duty
into the fall.
This is the season to buy shoes,
bags and lingerie. Oxfords or san-
dals which mountnover the instep,
and handled bags in the staple hues
of black, navy blue or white are all
safe investments. So is white or tea

houette which molds the figure to

Narrow white or colored belts,
bright polka dot scarfs, colored
strapped sandals, animal clips, twin
lapel boutonnieres, frosty white tur-
bans and bright wooden bracelets
