The manner in which the plan came to light was not revealed, although Hightower is said to have confessed. Hightower is now en route to the federal prison on McNeil's Island to serve a five year sentence for holding up a Japanese chauffeur on the Scho- fleld-Waipahu road. Elaborate plans had been laid by Hightower and his alleged accom plice, whose name was not made known, to rob the bank on their dash to freedom, it is said.

Lyman fol lowers had been boastful and claimed he would show the way. The early returns from the small precincts in dicated he would win but after Puu-iii-no had been heard from the swing of the returns set toward Wise and he secured a clear majority over Lvman and King combined.

MARTIN KAYOED BY JOHNSON (ASSOCIATED PRESS) NEW YORK, Oct. 8 Bob Martin, heavyweight champion of the A. E. F. and at one time mentioned as a con tender for the world's title, was knocked out in a bout here by Floyd Johnson, California heavyweight. "Under the Bamboo Tree." Some years ago a melody bearing the above title was quite a popular song, but of late it appears to have become synonomous with the 18th amendment of the constitution of the United States. Or rather, with its violation. On Friday of last week Federal Prohibition Director E. C. S. Crabbe, for the Island of Maui, received a tip that on a certain premises near the beach road at Kahului were hidden five gallons of precious "Maui Corn." Following the tip, Crabbe began the search. After some little time the of ficer dove through a barrage of bam boo shoots and came upon a small heap of rubbish that he thought did not belong there rightly. He was right. Under the rubbish heap were the five gallons. Now they are located in the police court await ing to be claimed by the owner. Infant Mortality In London Shows Huge Decrease Recently (ASSOCIATED PRESS) LONDON Only a little while ago alarmists were indulging in all sorts of dire predictions concerning the fu ture of England because, it was al leged, not enough babies were being born. The great middle class, called the backbone of the country, was de clared by some pessimists to be doomed to speedy extinction unless it produced more babies. Now these lamentations have ceas ed. Some far-seeing and logical sta tistician points out that the future of a country Is not determined so much by the number of babies born as by the number of babies which survive the first year or life and grow up. Looked at from that angle England is not doing so badly in this all im portant matter. During the month of August it is pointed out that the death rate of children under one year of age was only 41 per 1,000 births. In 1919 Lon don's rate for the same period was 55. Compared with the beginning of this century the baby-saving figures give still greater cause for rejoicing among those who reckon the future of England depends, above all things, on babies. The first four weeks of August 1901 gave an infant mortality rate for London of 267 more than six times that of 1922 which proves, it is argued, that if babies can save England, England will be saved. Cuba Promises Labor Better Treatment For the House On the early returns for the house Clark led Paschoal for a time but then the "old campaigner" came to the front and final figures gave him the largest vote for any candidate.
