After assaulting his victim the negro
apparently killed her with a blow
which crushed her head. The body al
so had been stabbed in many places
with two silver table forks. The
blood-stained forks were found in the
yard. The negro had been paid out
of the chain gang by the woman's hus
band and a near-by negro farmer
about 10 days before. On the after
noon of the 22nd Cobb went to the
Simmons home where Mrs. Simmons
was alone with her 2-year old child.

ment Protucts Co., of Wilmington was
taken from a Birmingham hotel rn

the Red Cross war fund campaign
committee, and escorted to the termi
nal station. Dykeman was forced
carry a banner on one side of which
was inscribed in yellow, "This is my
color." and on the other side, "Slacker
leaving town." Dykeman is said
have talked disrespectfully to a worn
an soliciting funds for the Red Cros
who approached him for a contribu
tion in the dining room of the hotel.
At the station Federal officers aftar
strenuous efforts succeeding in get
ting possession of Dykeman, who was
locked up until further investigations.
The Star says Dykeman is not a Wil
mington man and has never lived
there. It quotes the president of the

.HERE'S a lot of geography in
the wear of tires. Some wear
well in one region, and wear
out in another. Climate, pecu

cause of it. Therefore, good service in
a single region is not enough proof of
tires that must undergo nationwide use.
Least of all could it measure tires up
to the TESTED standard, Goodrich

Goodrich Tires do on the roads of every
