"EATHEE Ob Pag. Two Hearing Postponed Until Nov. 17 By Investiga tors; Hughes Happy WASHINGTON, Aug. 11 — (U.R)— A Senate sub-committee called off its drama-packed Howard Hughes war contract probe today until Nov. 17 and the millionaire Holly wood plane maker jubilantly claimed vindication and predicted it would never be resumed. The announced reason for the surprise three-month recess was the investigators’ failure to find John W. Meyer, Hughes’ free spending press agent. Hughes characterized this as “ridiculous.” He said Sen. Owen Brewster, R., Me., who flew to Maine last weekend for a vaca tion, was “too cowardly to stay here and face the music.” “There was no reason for the other Senators to continue his bat tle for him,” Hughes said. "When Senator Brewster headed for the backwoods of Maine, that was the tipoff. Washington was getting too hot for him. Brewster is Chairman of the War Investigating Committee which began looking into $40,000, 000 worth of 'Hughes’ wartime government aircraft deals last spring. The inquiry was turned over later to a subcommittee headed by Sen. Homer Ferguson, R„ Mich. snu orown As another standing-room-only crowd assembled for what was to have been the fifth day of Hughes’ appearance on the witness stand, Ferguson announced the decision to quit until Nov. 17. He said U.S. Marshals had been unable to catch up with Meyer. Hughes had refused to aid in the search. Ferguson ordered Hughes to re turn here on Nov. 17 — "at 10 a.m.” The wealthy aircraft de signer, builder and flier agreed, but turned to reporters and said: “You don’t really think these hearings will ever be resumed, do you?” The subcommittee chairman, looking a bit weary after four days of wrangling with the hand some, moustached witness, said another reason for the long recess was that several Senators had to start preparing for other in See SENATORS On Page Two THREE ARE INJURED IN TRUCK-CAR CRASH NEAR CITY LIMITS A Couple and their 18-months old daughter were injured at 7:30 o’clock last night a few feet inside the city limits on the old Wrights ville Beach highway when a car crashed into a pickup truck that had halted to discharge passen gers.

Say ‘Pretty Please’ Or Die; So She Dies COUDERSPORT, Pa., Aug 11— (U.R)_ A 48-year-old woodchopper was held today for killing his wi ? because ' she refused to say “pretty, please.” Sheriff Ned Clark of Potter coun ty said George H. Chapman, shot his wife, Minnie, 42, during a drinking bout in their one-room cabin near West Binghampton. Sheriff Clark gave this account of the slaying, according to Chap man’s confession: Chapman and his wife, both of whom cut wood for a living, came home Saturday from Wellsville, N. y. after buying a new cross saw. They started drinking wine, whiskey, and beer. The drinking bout continued into Sunday. Chapman ordered his wife to bring him his clock. She refused. Chapman then shot the face out of two clocks in the cabin with a .22 target pistol. Mrs. Chapman said, "Please don’t do that, daddy.” Chapman said, ‘,‘If you don’t say ‘pretty, please’, you'll get the same dose.” Mrs. Chapman started to say “please, daddy” — afcd Chapman, See PRETTY PLEASE On Page 2 GETS ATOM POST — John C.

GOVERNOR TO SET LYNCH PROBE DATE Conference Planned On Northampton Jury’s Fail ure To Indict Men RALEIGH, Aug. 11 —(^-Gov ernor Cherry tomorrow plans to set a definite date for a c6nfer ence which he has called to dis cuss the Northampton grand jury’s recent action in failing to return true bills against the Rich Square white men charged with attempting to lynch a Negro. The conference tentatively had been set for Wednesday, but the governor indicated yesterday that he possibly will have tq move up the date. Invited to the conference, to be held in the governor’s office, were Atty-Gen. Harry McMullan, Judge J. Paul Frizzelle of Snow Hill, and Solicitor Ernest R. Tyler of Roxobel. Judge Frizzelle was on the bench last week in Northamp ton county when the grand jury returned not true bills against the seven charged with attempting to lynch Godwin (Buddy) Bush. “The judge and solicitor may still be tied up in court on Wednesday,” the governor said yesterday, “In that case, I’ll have to postpone the conference until later in the week.” Terming the Northampton grand jury’s action a “miscar riage of justice”, Governor Cherry stepped into the picture last week by announcing that he will appoint a Superior Court judge to sit as committing magis trate to hear the evidence in the attempted lynching case and as sign the case for trial in an ad joining county. The governor’s choice as com mitting magistrate will not be an nounced until after the special conference.

Along The Cape Fear SOLDIERS DEPARTURE — As previously stated, on the morning of February 22, 1865, a Confeder ate officer and his retreating troops left Wilmington after paus ing at the Market street dock. That officer whose identity is not fully known, was saddened by his departure from Wilmington and the thought of leaving the city in the hands of the Union troops. He called to the next rank ing officer in the batalion and gave him command. The Union then turned back from Boney Bridge where the troops had reached and hurriedly went into the city to bid farewell to his fam ly. He hurried along Red Cross to Front street and in the process shook hands and said good-bye to several friends he met. On reach ing Market and Front streets, he found that the enemy already was approaching. Gathered there were the mayor and aldermen of the city, together with other citizens. They were avfaiting the rapidly approaching enemy to turn over to them the keys of the city. * * * CITY’S APPEARANCE — Re sults of fire from the previous day were apparent. Window panes in the houses were shattered. Debris from artillery and rifle fire were scattered about the streets. The officer rushed to the home of his family to say good-bye. He then started back to Boney bridge to rejoin his command. His sister ac companied him to that point even at the risk of being shot. Historians tell that the city’s streets, as ■ the couple hurried along and even as the Union troops were approaching along the river, were virtually deserted. Window blinds were drawn. Not a person was to be seen. Orie> historian writes “apparently even the dogs were affected by the pre vailing distress as the mournful walk was continued.” Finally the officer parted from his sister and was able to rejoin his command about five miles out side Wilmington. The sister, in later years, according to one his torian said “that was the loneliest walk of my life time.” • * » WILMINGTON DESERTED—On her walk back to her home she said that she met no one and that the only sound was the distant marching and loud talk of Northern em soldiers as they entered the city.

PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 11 —(U.R)— The “Red Tide” struck this area of the Gulf Coast for the first time today, accompanied by tell-tale red-splotched water that has meant death to millions of fish and other marine inhabitants in recent weeks. Even as experts expressed hope that the mysterious scourge of the seas had ended its stay in the Clearwater, Fla., coastal area to the north, air observers began spotting schools of dead fish on the ocean swells offshore from St. Petergburg. If the strange "poison water” moves up Tampa Bay from St. Petersburg at the mouth, it would trap untold millions more fish. Beach dwellers along Boca Ceiga Bay which separates the Gulf beaches from the St. Petersburg mainland reported the “red tide’s” arrival early this morning. Where the water had been its normal bluish-green at sunset Sunday, to day it had a reddish yellow tinge. Harbor pilots and lighthouse workers stationed along the outer points of Tampa Bay reported that carcasses of dead fish already lit tered the sands from Clearwater to Egmont Key, roughly 30 miles.

Y„ Aug. 11—(U.R)—Egypt warned the United Nations Security Council today that Britain’s continued presence in tlie Nile Valley threatened the peace of the entire Middle East and Britain replied that Egypt’s charges were “unjust and in accurate.” f Sir Alexander Cadogan, arguing Britain’s case, reiterated that Brit ish troops were in Egypt under terms of a valid treaty signed in 1936. As for Egyptian claims on the Sudan, he said, “The political unity of the Nile valley is a myth.” Cadogan said “A very consid erable part” of the Nile basin wai in Ethiopia. Uganda and the Bel gian Congo, and that, “If we are to accept this doctrine. We must consider whether these nations have any right to remain political ly separate from Egypt.” Tlie British delegate gave a de tailed review of Anglo-Egyptian relations, which he said had led to the establishment of prosperous semi-autonomous governments in Egypt and the Sudan. “I can only express my disappointment — to put it at the lowest—that we are noy/ shown the door with nothing but reproaches and abuse,” He said. Cadogan attacked the Egyptian case point-by-point. He referred to Britain’s position that the treaty of 1936 is a valid document with nine more years to run. And that the council should strike the Egyptian complaint from its agenda. Egypt took the position, how ever, that Britain's presence in the Nile valley was likely to cause serious trouble at any time.
