BRUCE MAKES ADDRESS
j IN FRANCE’S COUNTY
Explains To Cecil Democrats
What Soviet Rule Means And
Flays Senator’s Record
| RITCHIE ALSO SPEAKS
Some hot verbal shots were directed
at Senator France last night In his
own home county, Cecil, by William
C abell Bruce, Democratic nominee for
the United States Senate, who. to
gether with Governor Ritchie, spoke
at Elkton to a large gathering of Cecil
Democrats. After thoroughly ex
plaining what Soviet rule really
means, and attacking the present
senior senator from Maryland for his
strong advocacy of the Bolsheviks.
Mr. Bruce stated that he didn’t think
the Senator to be a "conscious dema
gogue." but rather believed he simply
“lacked horse sense.*’ The whole
political record of Senator France
also was severely attacked by Mr.
Bruce during his discourse.
G. 0. P, Tariff Condemned
Governor Ritchie criticized the Re
publican Congress for reducing the
higher rates of the graduated Income
lax and the excess profits tax, alleg
ing that this will result in an added
burden, amounting to $500,000,000 an
nually, on the masses of the people.
He claimed those who made excessive
profits should be taxed heavily.
'rtie Governor said the Fordney-Mc-
Cumber tariff is iniquitous, because it
taxes all the necessaries of life. He
said it will add ISO a year to the ex
penses of every man. woman and
child In the country. The voters can
do their part in remedying this, he
said, by electing Democratic candi
dates to the Senate and House.
Mr. Bruce, said, in part:
“What reason can Senator France,
my Republican opponent, give for
seeking re-election? He has ad
vanced a number of fantastic theories.
One of these is that we should take
over the German colonies In Africa
and there establish a settlement of

* OF GEORGIA TECH, TOO
Three important changes were
made in the lineup of the Naval
Academy football team t practice
yesterday afternoon, and the.arrange
ment is likely to continue through
the Georgia Tech game on Saturday,
as today will be the last afternoon
for serious practice before the game.
McKee went into the backfleld for
Fllppon, Zuber continued in the place
of Lentz, the big right guard, and
Stolz was substituted for Parr, one
of the veterans of the team, at left
end. The latter change was some
what unexpected.
The change works a considerable
loss of weight to the team. Zuber
Is outweighed more than 30 pounds
by Lentz, but is a very hardy and ag
gressive youth and much more of a
fighter than his big rival. McKee Is
15 pounds lighter than Flippen, but
more experienced, as he won his let
ter and star in 1920. Stolz and Parr
each weigh about 185. but Stolz is a
very rugged youth. He was a sub
stltue last year, his first at the Acad
emy. The varsity was given only a
brief scrimmage, as the players have
been going a rather stiff pace and
a let-up was deemed advisable.

BALTIMORE, MD., Oct. 19.—The
defense scored in the trial at Towson
this morning of Walter Socolow, on
the charge of murdering William B

CRUEL HAZING
IN ROBINSON'S
IMPORT
Trial Set For Early This After
noon, Delayed Because Of In
accuracies Found In Draft Of
Charges Against Midshipman
Of First Class
McGREGOR, VICTIM,
APPEARS ON CRUTCHES
Discovery of inaccuracies in the
draft of charges caused a delay in the
trial of Mirshipman Bruce Robinson,
of Chandler, Ariz., first class,’ sched
uled to begin early this afternoon be
fore a naval court-martial at the
Naval Academy.
And in accordance with a motion
passed by the court, the charges were
returned to Rear-Admiral Henry B.
.Viison, Superintendent of the Acad
emy, for the errors to be rectified.
New charges were prepared and the
.rial got under way later this after
noon.
For over an hour the court was en
gaged in going over the specifications
contained in the charges, after which
•t was announced they were not in
proper form, in that the specific in
stances of “cruelly hazing,’’ and
‘causing the cruel hazing of," were
framed incorrectly under the provi
sions of naval law.
Victim On Crutches
That the offense charged against
Robinson was a cruel one, and that
le stands in danger of dismissal
seems to be rather certain. W. H
McGregor, of Bremerton, Washington
State, is his victim, and it is under

Grand Jury Of County Now En

Of Witnesses As Result Of
Disclosures At Socolow Mur

.
CLAIM NEW EVIDENCE ’
WILL BE UNCOVERED
Based upon disclosures made bjr
State’s Attorney Robert F. Leach, of
Baltimore city, who is prosecuting the
case of Walter Socolow. charged with
the killing of Walter B. Norris in the
payroll holdup and killing case in
Baltimore two months ago, the grand
jury of Anne Arundel county today
re-opened the investigation of the
tragedy at Belle tlrove Inn, In the
upper county, several months ago,
that resulted in shooting to death of
Michael Cadora, and injury of several
other persons.
A score or more witnesses, a num
ber of whom were examined at the
original investigation conducted a t
the county jail here, have been sum
moned to appear before the grand in
quest. A number of the witnesses
are young women.
New evidence tending to fasten the
crime upon Walter Socolow, ''Jack’'
hart and “Wiggles” Smith, who figur
ed in the Norris holdup, robbery and
murder in Baltimore, is said to be
In the hands of the authorities. Ac
cording to State’s Attorney of
Baltimore, the investigation has
shown that these three wero impli
cated in the shooting and that one
of them may have tired the fatal shot.
Search For Madeline Smith
Deputies yesterday searched for
Madeline Smith, who, at the time of
the shooting, gave her address us Ml 4
Hamilton Terrace, Baltimore, and
Frederick Rutledge, 603 West Sara
toga street, Baltimore, who suffered
a scalp wound during the battle. Miss
i Smith has left the city. Rutledge has
disappeared from the Saratoga street
address, but is believed to be in tho
city. Both are sought for further
questioning along the Bugs developed
recently.
In view of the disclosures made by
Mr. Leach, the grand jury will en
deavor to ascertain wheliie* Socolow,
Hart and Smith were at ta? inn on
the night of the shooting. Mr. Leach
contends that the trio went there for
ihe purpose of avenging a heating ad
ministered by a Philadelphia gunman
known only as “Blackle” to “Fats”
Novak two nights before the fatal
shooting.
Two of the witnesses summoned to
appear are Howard Scarbrough, 712
Llnwood avenue, and *Coxcy” Brophy.
Neither of these has been questioned
by the authorities heretofore. It was
known that they were present at the
time of the shooting, but as their
I testimony had no bearing upon ttje
| previous investigation, they were ijftl
examined at length. However, wtrn "
the new tuffi of events in the inv*& :l
