-(gp)-Warner Oland, the Charlie

deaths on the screen, died of bron-
chial pneumonia today in his native
When the 57-year-old star of the
stage and screen died, his estranged
wife, the former Edith Shearn of
the stage, was preparing for a hurried
trip from here to his bedside.
The end came in a Stockholm hos-
pital after 01-and--was--removed-from
the home of Eric Stocklasse, Scan-
dinavian artist and friend of the ac-
tor, in Tyreso, near Stockholm.
Mrs. Oland was so overcome by the
news that she cancelled reservations
on airplanes and steamer, made five
days ago when she first learned of
her husband'snillness. Sheareceived
word onlyyesterdaythat his condi-
tion was critical.
Harrison\ Ryon, the widow's at-
torney, said Oland would be buried
in the little Swedish town of Umeo,
his birthplace, as he requested.
Oland's departure to Sweden more
than a month ago was almost as mys-
terious as were the movements of
Author Earl Derr Biggers' famous
detective that he portrayed.
He had reached a separate main-
tenance agreement with his wife af-
ter her suit filed a year ago.
Charlie Chan was brought to life
on the screen by Oland in 1931 and
he made 17 Chan pictures. By a
muscular contraction of his eye lids

brows up and his mustacht down, he

German Penetration May
Be Offset By Liberal
Policy Of Loans, Trade
LONDON, Aug. 6-(/P)-Great Bri-
tain and France are strengthening
their diplomacy with hard cash to
combat Naiz Germany's economic
advance down the Danube through
Southeast Europe. J
Europe's brand of "dollar diplo-
macy" today quickened with develop-
ments in three spheres tied closely
with the Berlin-Rome trade system:
1. A British trade delegation ar-
rived in Bucharest for trade talks de-
signed to bring King Carol into closer
British commercial cooperation.
2. Bulgaria-brought into the wid-
ening circle of London and Paris
sway by' a British-French loan of
375,000,000 franc ($10,357,000) mainly
for rearmament-may receive even
more money from Britain than that
granted Aug. 5.
3. Belgrade reports indicated Pre-
mier Mussolini's economic ally, Yugo-
slavia, may be weakening before the
temptation of British and French
financial facilities.
The new moves followed Britain's
successful £16,000,000 ($80,000,000)
loan and credits July 4 to Turkey-
Europe's Balkan outpost whose friend-
ship may be vital to either side in
any future war through control of
the entrance to the Black Sea and
the Eastern Mediterranean.
Both British and French officials
publicly have denied this economic
offensive is designed to encircle Ger-
But privately they admit the two
countries are entrenching themselves
as strongly as possible behind what
economic interests they possess in

Methods Told
At Symposium
Dr. Hetengi Gives Outline
Of Photo=Elastic Method
Of Measuring Stresses
Outlining the photo-elastic method
as the chief method, Dr. M. Hetengi
of the Research Laboratories of West-
inghouse Electricity and Manufac-
turing Co. discussed various methods
for measuring stresses experimentally
in loaded specimens yesterday morn-
ing before the regular weekly meeting
of the engineering mechanics Sym-
posium on the properties of metals.
Dr. Hetengi opened his lecture with
an outline of the ordinary two-
dimensional photo-elastic test. He
continued his discussion with a con-
sideration of the latest developments
in photo-elastic stress measurement.
He stated that it was now possible to
make experimental measurements in
three-dimensional test specimens.
This process consists of loading the
specimen in a furnace which has a
temparture of about 110 degrees.
The specimen deforms perman-
ently at this temperature and after
cooling, it can be sliced up into thin
lamina. These lamina are investigat-
ed in the usual two-dimensional stress
analysis and in this manner the whole
volume of the test specimen can be
explored. Dr. Hetengi concluded his
talk with a description of the chemi-
cal and physical composition of bake-
lite which made this possible.

Reports that the Pan Ameri-

been found 800 miles off the
coast of China, were called er-
roneous early this morning by
the Associated Press upon re-
ceipt of authoritative reports
from Washington and Tokyo.
A request was made by the
State Department,.the Associat-
ed Press said, at the behest of
Pan-American Airways that the
Japanese Navy search the area
in the vicinity of Douglas Reef
where company officials believed
the Clipper may have drifted.
The request was misinterpreted
and the report circulated that
the Clipper had been found. An
American amateur radio operat-

spread the false report which
even described the condition of
the clipper when found and de-

And Hall Are Expelled;
Two Others Suspended
Martin Charges
Trio "Disrupts"
DETROIT, Aug. 6-(P)-The Unit-
ed Automobile Workers of America's
Executive Board tonight removed
from office and expelled from the
C.I.O. union three of four suspended
international vice-presidents. The
fourth was suspended from office for
three monts.
Those given the most severe penal-
ty possible under the Union's consti-
tution were Richard T. Frankensteen,
Wyndham Mortimer and Ed Hall.
Walter N. Wells was suspended for
three months dating from June 13,
the day President Homer Martin sus-
pended the four and also Secretary-
Treasurer George F. Addes.
Addes was tried by the Board first,
and removed from office and expelled
from the UAW a month ago.
Martin charged the five officers
with conspiring to "disrupt" the
Union and turn it over to the Com-
The disciplined officers retaliated
with charges that Martin's adminis-
tration was dominated by Jay Love-
stone, head of the Independent Com-
munist Labor League.
Although the Board assured the
defendants of "adequate protection"
in an ultimatum demanding their
presence at the trial by 11:30 a. m.,
Sugar said the suspended officers de-
cided to remain away from the head-
quarters because of advice from a
sympathetic board member that "the
situation looks bad."

health officers today began a check-
up of ailing residents of this section,
confident they had isolated a germ

State Health Commissioner Don W.
Gudakunst said the germ had been

monkey as Shiga dysentery, an or-

rare in this section of the country.

He described the disease as "the
most severe of all dysentery diseases"
that spread through contaminated
water or food. It may be contracted
from fresh, uncooked food, or water
that has not been boiled, he said.
Dr. Gudakunst said the diagnosis
was the first ever made of the disease
in Michigan. It may have been
