wawjT RAIL LEADERS WILL DEFER PAY CUT PLEA Executives Indicate They Will Agree to Appeal Made by Eastman. ASK 6-MONTH DELAY Present 10 Per Cent Slash Is Expected to Remain in Effect for That Time. I,'Copvrißht 1933. bv United Pres*) WASHINGTON, June 21.—Rail way executives indicated today that they would comply with the re quest of President Roosevelt and postpone their proposed 12' i per cent wage cut for at least six months, the United Press learned. While Joseph B. Eastman, federal railroad co-ordinator, met with the railroad's committee of nine to ex plain further the administration plans for the steam carriers, it was learned that he had presented a two-sided proposition to the rail roads and the men who work upon them. In return for definite postpone ment of the 12' 2 per cent reduction, Eastman was understood to have assured the railroad owners that labor would agree to an extension— probably six months—of the 10 per cent wage “deduction” which went into effect two years ago. Aks Delay in Action An official of one of America's prominent railroads, the United Press informant said that Eastman talked to the railroad executives in this manner: “Don’t put your 12Vi per cent pay cut notice into effect now. You sim ply will be throwing a monkey wrench into President Roosevelt’s whole reorganization program. “Postpone the notice for six months. Give the President a chance to put his program into effect. “Then, if conditions are no better or only slightly better, railroad labor will agree to an extension of the original 10 per cent wage re duction.” Plan Received Favorably The committee of nine, headed by W. F. Thiehoff of the Chicago, Bur lington & Quincy, looked upon Eastman’s proposition as reasonable. In conversations among themselves, the railroad committeemen indicated acceptance of the suggestion, but they probably will make no an nouncement for several days until the conferences are over and all differences have been ironed out. The only possible hitch in the compromise might come from the executives of railroad labor, who also are meeting with Eastman in Washington. No definite word has been forth coming from them concerning ex tension of the old 10 per cent de duction, against which they fought so bitterly, but Eastman had no doubt that they will agree. Individuals among the labor men are inclined to think, however, that if they can stave off the threat ened 12*2 per cent reduction, they will have accomplished a good job l,or the brotherhoods.

Peggy McMath Peggy McMath Tells Own Story of Abduction at Cape Cod. By United Press BARNSTABLE, Mass., June 21. Margaret < Peggy) McMath told from the witness stand today her story of adventures and discomforts in the hands of kidnapers. When she calmly ended her account, the government rested its case against Kenneth and Cyril Buck, charged with the abduction. The defense immediately began its effort to clear the two brothers of the charges of kidnaping Peggy and holding her for $60,000 ransom. The 10-year-old principal in the celebrated Cape Cod kidnaping con cluded the state's case by three hours and twelve minutes of testimony concerning her abduction irom harwich Center grammar school last May 2 and her imprison ment for nearly three days. The defense surprised oy opening its case with testimony of Cyril Buck, 41, who claims he was an in nocent intermediary in the case and that he helped his younger brother in the belief the latter was domi nated by a bootleg gang.

Bill Book, C. of C., Paid S2OO Monthly by State William H. Book, director of the civic affairs committee of the Indian apolis Chamber of Commerce, is also on the state payroll receiving S2OO a month and expenses. This was disclosed today by an audit of the emergency fund expendi tures of Governor Paul V. McNutt. Book works in the Governor's outer office as part-time assistant to Fred Hoke, director of the Gov ernor's unemployment relief com mission. When Hoke was appointed it was announced that he would be a “dollar-a-year man." He is that, but not his assistant, the records show. Another emergency fund expendi ture. of which no public announce ment was made, was a donation to the National Editorial Association of SSOO. It was explained that the Gov ernor gave this money to make up the deficit of the expenses of the editors’ recent convention in the state, with the idea that the state will receive favorable publicity throughout the country. Wayne Coy, secretary to the Gov ernor, said that it was not done to gain favor with Indiana editors, since only about five are members of the organization. Partly cloudy with showers tonight and possibly Thursday; somewhat cooler. NAB YOUTH IN ‘BENEFACTOR KILLING'CASE Edward Burns Suspected of Slugging Motorist Who Aided Him. PICTURE IS IDENTIFIED Widow Points Out Prisoner; Alertness of Officer Helps Capture. Detectives today were grilling Ed ward Burns, 21, held on SIO,OOO bond, striving to obtain from him a con fession that he slugged and caused the death of George Hughes, 45 Lafayette, benefactor, who paid with his life for helping a needy man. Hughes was injured fatally Sat urday night on state Road 52, near Fifty-third street, when his car was wrecked during an attempted rob bery by a young man whom he was giving a ride to Lebanon “to take anew job.” Burns was arrested Tuesday aft ernoon in a North Illinois street restaurant by Detectives John White and Charles Bauer, after Mrs. Elizabeth Hughes, widow of the slain man, identified a Bertillon picture of Burns which had been in the po lice files. Although White and Bauer picked up Burns, Captain Otto Pettit said much of the credit for the arrest was due to the efforts of patrolman Willis Thompson, who turned in the first information that linked Burns to the killing. Given Help Before Mrs. Hughes said her husband knew the young man who slugged him, through having given him small sums of money when ap proached near Illinois and Market streets. Saturday afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Hughes and the latter’s sister, Miss Anna Steill, 25, came from Lafay ette and Hughes saw the slugger on the street. Hughes assented readily to a re quest for a ride and made arrange ments to meet the youth after Mr. and Mrs. Hughes and Miss Steill attended a downtown theater. Slugging Causes Death When the car neared Fifty-third street ,on state Road 52, the young man suddenly drew a gun, accord ing to Mrs. Hughes, and slugged her husband. The car plunged off the road into a utility pole. A rib puncture of the heart killed Hughes. Although Burns gave police 2658 North Harding street as his address, a pressing shop operated by A. O. Sanderson is located there and San derson says he does not know Burns. The suspect’s mother resides at 2653 North Harding street, Apart ment 6, but she told police that her son has not lived at home for some time. J. Elwood Jones, judge pro tern, in municipal court four, today con tinued the Burns case until Satur day morning, when he was in formed that Mrs. Hughes still is suf fering too much from accident in juries to appear before then.

Alva Norris, 41, Emporia, was killed Tuesday after driving into the path of a Big Four train south of Mark leville. The payment was made to Walter H. Crim, editor of the Salem Re publican-Leader, chairman of the N. E. A. convention committee. Horace Humphries, Greene county chairman of the unemployment re lief commission, was given SSOO from the emergency fund for $1 a day employment of men in Wright town ship, Greene county. The Governor also paid for the fence and new sod at the executive mansion from the emergency fund and not from his $666 monthly maintenance provision. Blue grass sodding there cost $240.70 and the rustic picket fence, $302.80. There remains in the emergency fund a balance of $21,866.15 from the $50,000 appropriation. Any balance will revert to the general fund at the close of the fiscal year, June 30. Then he can begin expending the new fund budgeted at $125,000 a year. INDIANAPOLIS, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21, 1933 Mitchell’s Fate Rests With Jury Snr v Charles E. Mitchell Banker’s Case Studied by Panel of New York Business Men. BY SIDNEY B. WHIPPLE United Press Staff Correspondent COURTROOM, NEW YORK, June 21.—A jury of business men wres tled this afternoon with the highly technical financial problems involved in Charles E. Mitchell’s income tax maneuvers of the crash years. The case of the former chairman of the National City bank and af filiates, charged with evading taxes of $850,000 in 1929 and 1930, went to the jury at 12:27 p. m. after a morning devoted to a long, explicit charge by Federal Judge Henry W. Goddard. Because of the knotty problems involved, with both sides admitting may essential facts and the ques tion of guilt or innocence depending to a large extent upon intent, court room attendants forcast a long wait before the jury would be ready to report, even if the twelve men were able to agree upon a verdict. A verdict of guilty would carry a maximum penalty of ten years in prison and a fine of $20,000. Throughout the judge’s charge, Mitchell sat, his fingers nervously drumming on the counsel table, in tently following the rules laid down by the jurist. His tanned face was lined deeply and he blinked several times when Judge Goddard pronounced the words—“lf you find either that the defendant’s sale of stocks to his wife was a sham or that he failed wil fully to report $666,666.67 he re ceived from the bank’s management fund, you must find him guilty.” Judge Goddard told the jury that it might find him guilty on the first count if it finds that Mitchell made a fraudulent sale of stock, or if he should have reported his manage ment fund earnings. Either find ings, Garrard said, would be suf ficient to support a verdict of guilty on the alleged 1929 violation. ANDERSON MAYOR CASE GIVEN JURY Early Verdict Is Unlikely, Say Observers. By Times Special ANDERSON, Ind., June 21.—Quo warranto proceedings brought by Jesse H. Mellett, former Anderson mayor, seeking to oust Mayor Harry R. Baldwin, went to a jury in Madi son circuit court here at 12:05 this afternoon. Most persons who have followed the trial closely believe the jury will disagree. An adverse verdict will mean con tinuance of the fight to remove Baldwin, counsel for Mellett de clared. During final arguments this morn ing by the former mayor's counsel, applause was halted by Judge John W. Craig of Greensburg, special judge in the case. Among the last witnesses heard Tuesday were Mrs. Mary Mellett, who was divorced by the mavor, and his daughter. Mrs. Margaret Cole, appointed city controller by Baldwin. They asserted that since a serious illness of several months, Mellett s condition has improved steadily. Physicians who testified lor Bald win asserted Mellett is suffering from an incurable disease. ROOSEVELT SEEKING DOLLAR-POUND PACT Instructions Believed Sent to London Parley. By United Press LONDON, June 21. President Roosevelt’s new’ instructions to the United States delegation at the world economic conference may em body a plan for early, de facto stabilization of the dollar and pound sterling, it was reported to day. Parity, it was reported, would be fixed somewhere around $4.40 or §4.50 for the pound, a higher figure than the British have been willing to consider. It would be calcuated to give suf ficient room for the United States reflation program to achieve the desired effect, or if not achieved by indirect measures, to give President Roosevelt room to devaluate the dollar by 10 per cent, w’hich may be necessary to get prices back to the 1926 level.

GASOLINE PRICE IS INCREASED 1 CENT New Boost Follows Higher Crude Oil Costs. Price of gasoline rose another cent a gallon today, with four large distributing firms in Indianapolis j giving higher tank car and whole- j sale crude oil prices as the reason for the advance. With inflation becoming more effective, large gasoline and oil companies predicted further ad vances in price soon. Motor oil 1 prices have not risen.

The Times has won out in the controversy over the dis puted score game played in In dianapolis the night of June 3 between the Indians and Mil waukee. The Times scored the game as 6 to 5. giving Frank Sigafoos a double instead of a home run on the hit that broke up the game in the twelfth. Thomas J.

SEEK FLIERS IN MEXICANWILDS Spanish Aviators Lost on 1,000-Mile Journey From Havana. BY - JOHN R. MORRIS United Press Staff Correspondent MEXICO CITY, June 21.—Air planes, soldiers and ships went out at dawn today to search for two Spanish aviators, missing on a 1,000- mile flight from Havana to Mexico City, after conquering the Atlantic on the longest over-water flight ever made. A crowd that twelve hours be fore was estimated at 40,000, which maintained a watch for the fliers at Valbuena field for many hours, de spite a soaking rain,, dwindled this morning to a bare 100, including airport officials. It was believed the aviators, Cap tain Mariano Barberan and Lieuten ant Joaquin Collar of the Spanish air force, must have landed some where between Villa Hermosa, in Tabasco State, seventy miles up the Tabasco river from the coast, and Minatitlan, 100 miles up the coast of the- Gulf of Campeche, in Vera Cruz state. The stretch between Villa Her mosa, where the fliers were seen at 11:35 a. m. Tuesday, and Minatitlan is inhabited sparsely. After a brief stretch of coast line, there is jungle in which the fliers might wander for weeks. Bad weather was reported throughout the district. IMPORTERS WORRIED BY 3.2 BEER RULING Kentucky Verdict ‘Shock’ to State Attorney-General. Should the Indiana supreme court follow the Kentucky decision and hold that 3.2 beer is a “soft drink,” the state importers will be out of business. That the issue is raised in the Sam Rosen case from Lake county and soon will be ready for decision of the high court here was ad mitted by Attorney-General Philip Lutz Jr. He expressed concern over the Kentucky decision which was handed down Tuesday. “I believe, however, that in In diana we have a right to regulate beverage sales even if they are only near intoxicants,” Lutz said. His office is fighting to uphold the beer control law both on the score of licensing and banning of draught beer. Poor Aid Chief Has Idea Depression May Be Over Indianapolis has one man who is beginning to think that the depres sion is really over. He is Paul H. Moore, superintendent of the Central Housing Foundation. 222 East Wabash street, a Community Fund home for homeless and jobless men. For Moore can’t even keep men in staff positions at the foundation. They’re getting jobs, they say, and Moore has an idea that perhaps things are getting better. Last Saturday Moore lost seven staff workers and his last two cooks, who gave up their positions when regular, paid jobs beckoned. In the last three w’eeks, Moore said, more than forty regular pa trons of the institution have left to take jobs, most of them returning to positions they held before the de pression hit them. At present there are only about 250 men housed there, compared with an average of more than 300 men four or five weeks ago. One man, who had been forced to stay at the foundation for the last several months, received a call last week to take a job at Cincinnati at a plant where he had worked sev eral years ago. Being without funds for transpor Entered as Second-Class Matter at TostofTice. Indianapolis Season of Heat Arrives at 3:12 P. M.; A Long Day of Short Shadows. You people who have been per spiring and muttering imprecations at the sizzling sun the last few days certainly ought to be ashamed of yourselves for being such a lot of sissies. Really, there hasn’t been any ex cuse for it, because summer doesn't start until 3:12 p. m. today. And, not to be rude about it, but it doesn't make any difference what you think because that is the cold fact about this heat business. Take the word of J. H. Arming ton, observer for the United States weather bureau. The forecasting Mr. Armington is authority for the fact that summer begins officially this afternoon and he has some very conclusive and fascinating proof to offer. Shadows Are Short Incidentally, Armington has a suggestion for any one who hap pens to be a shadow casting de votee. This, from all available rec ords, is a little known cult, but if there are devotees in Indianapolis they can cast their shortest pos sible shadow this afternoon at 3:12. The reason for this is that the sun will be as far north as it ever gets. For the purpose of the rec ord, this is exactly 23 V 2 degrees north of the equator and is known as the summer solstice. Old Sol then starts his return, and when he gets back over the equator again in September, that will be the autumnal equinox, or fall, to you. Sun Schedule Varies He continues south 23% degrees, arriving at that point in December so winterjmay have his inning. Then he reverses and gets back to the equator again to usher in spring, or as we scientists say, the vernal equinox. It’s pretty much the same old grind for Old Sol, but there is a variation each year in the official beginning of summer, because of leap year. Last year, summer be gan about six hours earlier, to be exact, at 9:23 a. m. Since each year is approximately one-fourth of a day longer than 365 days, summer comes six hours later each year for four years until that extra time is made up. Thus, Old Sol will balance his books in 1936, when another leap year with the extra Feb. 29, occurs. STORES TO CLOSE AT 5 Early Shutting Hour to Go Into Effect Here on July 5. Five o’clock closing for all depart ment stores of the Indianapolis Merchants’ Association will be adopted Wednesday, July c, it was announced today. tation, and required to be on hand for the job the next day, the lucky one was in a quandary, for he could not "bum” his way to Cincinnati in time. His fellow’ tenants of the institution came to the rescue, pool ing their pennies, remainders of dimes “mooched" on street corners, to buy his railroad ticket. In the last several months, eight cooks have left the institution to take regular positions. Included afnong those w’ho have found jobs are a former cook and a former head waiter at one of the city’s leading hotels. The institution provides food and clean beds for men, without fam ilies, who have no homes or jobs. Clean sheets, nightgowns and towels are furnished the “regulars” each week, while transients, who are in the minority, are given clean linens, even if they are to be there only a night.

Election of a ma jority on either side determined how all delegates will vote at the con vention. With returns completed from, seventy-seven counties, forty-three favored repeal. A surge of late voters was the deciding factor. After apparent lack of interest early in the hot, summer day, voters thronged the polls between 5 and 8 o’clock. Re pealists had feared if voting was under 400,000, they would be de feated. The total number of ballots cast, however, was expected to aggregate more than 700.000.

Thirty-six states must approve the repeal resolution. Dry leaders, including F.
