CONVICTS TO PAY 5
SIX LIVES FOR ONE
Slayers of Warden in Illinois
Prison Break All Given |
Death Penalty.
i
By th® Associated Press.
CHICAGO, November 27.—Six lives
for one, demanded by the Jury which
i rled a sextet of convicts who slew
a warden in last May’s prison break,
marks the heaviest penalty ever as
sessed In Illinois for one murder.
The jury decreed hanging for the
men who stabbed Deputy Warden
Deter N. Klein In their dash for free
dom from the new penitentiary at
Statesville, returning its verdict late
yesterday. The date of the execution
was not set, pending hearing on a
motion for a new trial December 10.
So far as known here, there has
been only one other case in the coun
try in which six men were hanged j
for one murder. That was in New i
t (cleans two years ago. The verdict i
*fcalled the Haymarket riot trials inf
< hioago 40 years ago. in which seven j
anarchists were sentenced to be j
hanged, although only three of them ,
actually paid the penalty on the gal- i
lows. In that ease, however, there
were many killed and (10 or more
wounded by bombs thrown by the j
anarchists.
Most Claimed Innocent.
The defense made p. point of the
fart that never before in this State
had so many men been convicted of
■ oie murder. It was contended that
he slaying was the result of the arts
"f but one or two of the six. and that
'he others should not be held account
able.
state’s Attorney Rehn and b’.s aides, !
however, asked the jury to hang or j
■ quit all, saying the prosecution want- j
■ 1 no compromise verdict. They said '
penitentiary sentences would he ab-j
ird, inasmuch as live of the defend- ]
■ ats would have to serve life sentences i
nyway and the sixth still had 23 years
"f prison ahead of him.
Those convicted were Charles Du-1
■ liowski, 25; Charles Shader, lit; Wal- I
ter Stnlesky, 37; Bernard Roa, 24; Ore- !
gorio Rizzo, 20 and Robert Torrez, 26. |
One of the men who broke prison,
•lames Price, has not been raptured. I
Rizzo and Stalesky were serving bur- 1
srlary sentences, the four others were i
in for murder.
Another Break Forestalled.
Every precauPon was taken to pre-1
vent a break for liberty by the six j
after a steel saw six inches long was '
found yesterday concealed in a crutch
used by Roa. It was noted that when ,
the words “we fix his punishment at j
• l«ath,” was pronounced on the first j
man. the six all turned and surveyed
•he doors and windows of the court-!
room. A guard was at each of them. |
The trial was marked by the refusal 1
•if Nathan Leopold, jr., co-slayer of |
Rohby Franks, now serving a life sen-!
fence in Joliet, to testify. The con-!
victs had told of efforts they said they
had made to take Leopold with them.
DRUG LAW TEST ASKED.
Supreme Court Ruling Sought on
Harrison Act’s Validity.
The question of the constitutionality j
of the Harrison anti-narcotic law
reached the Supreme Court yesterday |
in a form which seems to require a i
new ruling.
Recently the court announced It I
might consider’it necessary to pass j
•new upon the question if a case came
before it in proper form.
Yesterday the Circuit Court of Ap- j
oeals at St. Paul asked it to pass J
upon the law’s validity as it affected j
•he contentions of Harry R. Alston, !
who had pleaded guilty to the pos- j
session of narcotics and who asserted '
that the States under their reserved I
police power, had exclusive jurisdic- I
tlon to regulate narcotics. He argued !
that the States had not, by consti- j
tutional amendment, delegated such j
authority to the Federal Government,
which was powerless in the absence of j
such an amendment to regulate !
pract ices.

j CHEMISTRY DECLARED
' VITAL PART OF LIFE
)
I
, Editor of Official Publication De
fends Science at City Club
Luncheon.
Chemistry plays a vital role in a
business man’s life whether he is
aware of it or not, declared Harrison
E. Howe, editor of Industrial and
Hngineering Chemistry, official publi
cation of the profession, in an address
at the City Club luncheon yesterday
! afternoon.
Reviewing the tvork of chemists j
! which has produced new products for j
i the industrial market, including j
I paints, manufacturing materials of j
! various substances for particular uses, j
j artificial silks, artificial leathers, lard
| substitutes and many more, Mr. Howe
| said the economic value of chemistry
is enormous through the saving of the
! natural resources and raw materials
} that it effects. One hundred and
j twenty million head of cattle are
j saved every year by the use of chemi
j cally-made leathers, tvhile 7,000,000 j
hogs Avould lie required to furnish the |
j fats now supplied in chemically-per- |
! fected vegetable oils. These accom- |
. plishments are bound to lie felt in the j
■ markets of the country, lie contended.
in addition to supplying new prod
! nets, chemistry acts as an efficiency
regulator in manufacturing plants,
! Mr. lloav© explained. Uses are dis
i covered by the chemist for what had
long been “waste material,” and the
: production of “seconds” in rnanufac
i turod goods is lessened by the ohem
i ist’s survey of the original raw ma
terials which enter factories.
| Mr. Howe closed his address Avith a
i plea for better understanding of
science by business men, which, lie
said, will result in a different attitude
toward it.
Anton Stephan, president of the
dub, presided as toastmaster and in
troduced Mr. Howe. Music was fur
nished by McWilliams’ Orchestra
throughout the course of the luncheon.

EPISCOPAL HOPE
SET IN CATHEDRAL
Dean Bennett Sees Washing
ton Edifice Eventually as
Heart of Church.
|
A century hence the Washington j
Cathedral will be the heart of the j
Episcopal Church in America, Very I
Rev. F. S. M. Bennett. dean of Ches
ter. England, predicted yesterday
afternoon during an address before
the Washington committee of the Na
tional Cathedral Association. The
meeting was held at the home of Mrs.
| Hennen Jennings, 2221 Massachusetts
avenue.
Dean Bennett, who is an authority
on the administration of cathedrals, t
is here at the invitation of the Col
lege of Preachers of the Washington
Cathedral to attend a series of im
portant conferences and meetings.
Presented by Bishop.
Right Rev. James E. Freeman, the
Bishop of Washington, presented the
British rector. Referring to the
cathedral, Bishop Freeman told of
some of .the plans for the immediate
future.
The cathedral authorities are par
ticularly ambitious, he said, to com
plete the choir and crossings by Oc
tober, 1928, at which time the tri
ennial general convention of the Epis
copal Church in the United States will
meet here. Bishop Freemen said that
when the cathedral is completed it
will mean more to the future of Wash
ington than any other building.
Dean Stresses Spiritual Ideals.
Dean Bennett stressed the need for
building spiritual ideals In a land
where prosperity is so general, i
“America,” he declared, “must he ever
alert on the spiritual side of things.”
This Nation, he added, Is Just discov
' ering that its church life needs just
j such centers of unity as the Wash
j ington Cathedral will he, concluding
; with the declaration that the ideals
!of this cathedral and the Chester
Cathedral are one.
Very Rev. G. C. F. Bratenahl. dean
of the Washington Cathedral, ex- j
plained what is being done on the j
Bishop Harding memorial, the crypt j
Chapel of the Resurrection. The
chapel is structurally completed, he
said, but the furnishings and mural
paintings hav r e not been obtained.
; Friends of Bishop Harding, it is hoped,
j will furnish these by January 25.

Canada and Mexico
Held Not “Abroad”;
No Duty Exemption
By the Aenoclated Pres*.
OGDENSBURG. N. Y., Novem
ber 27.—American citizens return
ing from Canada and Mexico are
not entitled to an exemption of
SIOO on dutiable articles.
In a decision recelA’ed at cus
toms headquaters here yesterday
i the Federal Customs Court, Third
Division, holds that these countries
; are not “abroad,” anti sustains the
| action of a collector who refused to
: allow an exemption on household
goods.
Tourists returning from Mexico
and Canada have been allowed the
exemption heretofore. The cus
toms department considered the.
two countries in the same classifi
cation as other foreign lands.
DISTRIBUTIONCALLED
REAL FARM PROBLEM
Round-Table Speaker Holds Eco
nomic Disposal of Products
Would End Trouble.
Proclaiming agriculture as the bed
rock of the country's welfare, former
Gov. R. A. Cooper of South Carolina,
a member of the Federal Farm Loan
Board, declared the solution of the
economic distribution of farm produce
would solve the whole problem of
farm relief, in an address before the
Round Table at a luncheon In the
University Club yesterday. With
proper distribution, he holds, the
farmers would receive reasonable re
turns for their efforts.
“There is no country,” the speaker
continued, “that can compete with
us in economic production, but In
economic distribution is where the
problem lies.
Mr. Cooper declared that he, him
self, a cotton farmer, has to use sur
plus money made in other ways to
pay for losses on his farm. He said
that with cotton selling at 12 cents
i a pound now, conditions are worse
} than they were when he was a boy,
i when he sold cotton for 4 cents a
pound, which was less than it cost to
produce it at that time.
He deplored conditions existing In
New England, the South and other
parts of the country, which have
caused many farmers to cease oper
ating their farms and go into some
other business.
J. C. Harris, a member of the Round
Table of Dallas, Tex.; H. R. Norton,
president of the Norton Manufactur
ing Co.: A. L. Thompson of the

MEXICO CITY, NoA’ember 27.
Rising to their feet and cheering with
enthusiasm, the members of the
Chamber of Deputies gave a A'Ote of
confidence to the government of
President Calles yesterday for Its
stand Avith regard to the Mexican
land and oil laAA*s. This demonstra

deputies had criticized the policies of

Mexico, not only in connection with
the land and oil latvs, but also Wash

raguan-Mexican situation and the op
position of the United States to al

raguan politics.
SeA’eraJ of the speakers also re
buked the Knights of Columbus or
