By the Associated Press, SPORTSMAN S PARK. ST. LOUIS, October 5.—Reveling in bright, warm sunshine, the faithful of St. Louis took themselves out to the ball game early and in great numbers today to greet their favorite Cardinals and the De troit Tigers in the third game of the world series. It was the first glimpse the home town rooters have gotten of the club since the Cards clinched the National League pennant on the closing day of the season last Sunday and then hur ried on to Detroit to split the first two decisions with the American League champions. Their enthusiasm for the situation, rekindled by the developmenst in De troit after a lapse of interest here late in the season, was evident every where. With Paul Dean, lil’l brother of big “Dizzy,” who pitched the Cards to an 8-to-3 victory in the first game, nominated to work against Tommy Bridges, curve-ball star, in a duel of right-handers, the turning point of the series was at hand, and no one geemed to want to be absent. Crowds greeted the Cardinals as they roared into town early this morn ing on their special train, and stayed long enough to volley a chorus of boos as the Tigers, fresh from School boy Rowe’s thrilUng 3-to-2 conquest In 12 innings yesterday. Then they hiked for the entrance gates at Sportsman's Park. All the reserved seats In the tight little park that serves both the Amer ican and National League clubs here through the season have been sold for days, and the way the less fortunate faithful flowed into the 8.500 bleacher and pavilion seats encircling the dis tant rim of the outfield indicated that the capacity of the park, a close 40.000, would be fully tested.

TWO LOCAL BANKS TO PAY DIVIDENDS Northeast Savings and Sev enth Street Savings Named by Hamilton. 25 AND 30 PER CENT TO GO TO DEPOSITORS Controller O'Connor and R. F. C. Head Announce Move to Close “Tail-end Receiverships.” Plans for paying out more than $500,000 in an additional 25 per cent dividend to depositors of the North east Savings Bank and a 30 per cent dividend to depositors of the Seventh Street Savings Bank were announced today by Receiver Norman R. Hamil ton as Controller of the Currency O'Connor and Chairman Jesse Jones of the Reconstruction Finance Corp. developed a new plan for closing out "tail-end receiverships" oi banks throughout the country. The exact dates for payment of the two dividends have not yet been de termined, but probably will be an nounced Within a few days. Deposi tors in both of these banks received a 50 per cent dividend, paid about a jcai v_». 19 Banks Unaffected. The new so-called O'Connor-Jones plan for closing out receiverships will not affect any of the 19 banks in re ceivership in the District of Columbia at the present time. O'Connor ex plained. He intimated, however, that much later on the plan might be ap plied to what was left of the smaller banks. The second dividend will be wel comed by depositors in two different parts of the city and will pay out a total of $586,276. The checks will be made available at the banks them selves and not at the office of the re ceivers In downtown Washington. Receiver Hamilton, in a statement, announced that these two new divi dends, in addition to a second divi dend. still being paid to depositors of the Washington Savings Bank, brings the total amount of second liquidating dividend payments to banks closed after the President's holiday here ,up to $659,095. This, he explained, is in addition to dividends of 50 per cent glrwuiy paid to 13,562 depositors in these three institutions. It brings the total received or shortly to be re ceived by them to $1,907,457 out of a total of the entlrl deposit liability at the time of closing of $2,496,720. Administered Efficiently. Receiver Hamilton declared these figures will be Interpreted as showing closed banks in this city "are being administered efficiently and effectively in the interests of depositors, under the direction of Controller O'Connor.” The O'Connor-Jones plan, disclosed for the first time late yesterday, is designed, O’Connor said, to wind up the “tail ends” of receiverships so as to give the depositors as much as pos sible from the last remaining assets. The plan, O'Connor explained, will be placed In operation on somewhere between 300 and 4C0 banks in receiv ership, each of which has left over tail-end assets amounting to less than $30,000. The first step would be a loan to the receiver from the Recon struction Finance Corp. for as much as the R. F. C. could loan under pro visions of new banking laws. Option of Depositors. The R. F. C. would take possession of the assets. The next step would be optional with the depositors of the bank, Mr. O'Connor emphasized. If the depositors desired, they would then be sold the entire remaining assets for a nominal sum, say for in stance, $1. The R. F. C. would still retain possession physically of the assets until the depositors could sell them on the open market for sufficient to reimburse the R. F. C. for its loan. The depositors then would gain com plete possession of the assets and take them out of the hands of the Govern ment, enabling the receivership to be terminated._Meantime, the receivers (Continued on Page 3, Column 5.) • • — mm 11 — —— 1 iii VON PAPEN PROTESTS AUSTRIAN CHARGES Informally Objects to Publication of “Brown Book" on Nazi Revolt.

NEW YORK, October 5 —Possession by Bronx County authorities of 13 letters, written in German, which Dr. Samuel Lubliner, Interpreter for the Bronx Supreme Court, declared refute alibi dates and places given by Bruno Richard Hauptmann, was disclosed to day. One of the letters written by Fritz Hauptmann, brother of the prisoner and a tailor in Dresden, Germany, was addressed to Max Halleck. a Seventh avenue furrier, and asked whether the late Isador Fisch, who died in Cer many last March, had any assets. The prisoner has maintained that Fisch gave him a package which, three weeks before his arrest, he discovered contained the money which authori ties later found was part of the Lind bergh ransom payment. Other Clues Withheld. The contents of the other letters were not disclosed.

The trial In the Bronx has been set for Thursday. October 11. Al ready a special panel of ISO men has been drawn. Foley reiterated previous statements that he was wUllng to turn Haupt mann over to New Jersey authorities If they had a good case against the prisoner. The prosecutor opened his morning interview today by branding as false any inference that Bronx County and New Jersey authorities were not in the "utmoct harmony" in their inves tigation of the kidnap case The Bronx proeecutor gave no fur ther reason for his reiteration that the two agencies were in accord in their investigation. In some quar ters, however, it was believed he was prompted by inferences drawn from his announcement yesterday of the finding of road maps and German- | English dictionaries in Hauptmann’s ' trunk, and a comment from Col. H. j Norman Schw-arzkopf. head of the [ New Jersey State Police, that Haupt mann's possession of the maps was not considered "significant."

A. to Use Aerial Photos To Measure Acreage Cuts By the Associated Press. The A. A. A. Is going up in the air to see that farmers abide by their pacts to cut acreage. The use of aerial photography to measure wheat lands was disclosed coday by A. R. Shumway. member of the National Wheat Advisory Com mittee from Oregon. Production control associations in Oregon and Washington State, facing the huge problem of measuring the fields of all the farmers who signed a contract with the Government, found the slow chain and wheel methods unsatisfactory. They called in aerial photographers. "The cost of the aerial photography method.” Shumway said, "is only be tween one-half and 1 cent per cent acre, or a little over one-third the cost of measuring by wheel. In addition, it is much more precise and accurate.” A. A. A. men saw in the experiment in the Northwest an opportunity to simplify the mechanics of the ad justment programs. "If this method has worked satis factorily in wheat areas there is little reason why it cannot also be applied in corn-hog. cotton and tobacco sec tions,” ope official said. Cost of the method in Oregon and Washington has been reduced still further through sale of prints, which become the property of the county control associations, Shumway said. One .county assessor purchased a set of pictures taken in his territory, and said he found sufficient land not previously on tax polls to pay for the photographs this first year.

F. L. Convention Is Told. " By the Associated Press. ; SAN FRANCISCO. October 5 — | President William Green of the American Federation of Labor charged yesterday that the country's major strikes have been caused by the re fusal of employers to follow the plain mandates of law. "If employers had accepted the right of wage earners to organize and met their representatives at the con ference table to negotiate terms and conditions of work, the President of the United States would not have to ask industrial truce.” Green said in an address prepared for a luncheon of the Commonwealth Club, a civic organization.

A. policy swung sharply away from price-fixing today and headed to ward competition in a "free market." As the revamped Blue Eagle unit gets under way, it is expected to reopen major codes, gradually to delete or modify some of the price and produc tion control devices they contain. This step, foreshadowed in Presi dent Roosevelt's speech last Sunday night, was hinted yesterday in a talk by Donald Richberg, now kingpin in the recovery drive. The intention apparently is to rely more on other provisions of codes— such as minimum wages and maxi mum hour*— to prevent the rule of "tooth and tang" which has been blamed for sweatshops ana cut-throat competition.

He said: "I think many businessmen that came down here determined upon pro duction control and price control, which they thought were esesntial to their safety and would produce then profits, have been seriously disillu sioned in the course of the year—dis illusioned partly as to the practical possibility of carrying out their de- J sires—and disillusioned as to whether they really want them carried out. • * * "There is no doubt of the necessity in some specific instances of prevent ing destructive price-cutting. There is no doubt of the necessity sometimes of putting some controls on produc tion. But to apply any sweeping theory to business as a whole, that In some way through trade associa tions they are going to control pro duction and prices In such a way as to bring about wonderful results, is an iridescent dream.” Discusses Labor Rights, Richberg. in his talk at a National Press Club gathering, gave this in terpretation of the National Labor Re lations Board s ruling on the collec tive bargaining rights of labor: "The board laid down the theory that when an election by any group, no matter what its size, was held for the purpose of selecting their repre sentatives. and when they had chosen by a majority their representatives, those were the men who had been chosen to represent the voters.
