Shortstop Bill Rogell moves up a peg to fifth in the line of batters, if he plays at all. Rogell, limping from a strained left ankle suffered in the fourth Inning of Thursday's game when he slid into second, was not im proved by a smashing collision with Pepper Martin in the seventh yester day. He made two errors after asking Cochrane for relief before the battle.

The official forecast was “generally fair today and tomorrow'; cooler by tonight.” The air was snappy this morning, *but the mercury climbed as the sun, pwjHHaaMaMKSd by St. Louis’ traditional - n’ May Mike Other Changes. There was a bare chance the brood ing Cochrane might make even more drastic changes before game time, and there was a report that he was considering leading off himself in place of. Jo Jo White. But Mickey, with 1 hit in 11 chances, is batting only .091 himself. The only hitters really standing up are Goslin and Gehringer, with .384 each. Green burg has left nine men stranded on base by his hitting failure in three games, though he hit the only Tiger homer in the first game off Dizzy Dean. His average is still .273 as a result of 3 hits in 11 times at bat. The real desperation of the Tigers’ situation, aside from the fact that they must beat both the Deans at least once each before they win this aeries, lies hidden in the past records of championship play. In 20 series limited to seven games where the count at the end of the first three games stood 2 to 1, the leading club eventually won the title 18 times. The two exceptions were the Pirates of 1925, who not only trailed 2 to 1, but lost the fourth game as well and still finished with three straight vie tories over Washington. The Sena tors in 1924 came from behind a 2-1 deficit to win out, taking three out of thp last four from the Giants. Greenberg Hitting Goat. Every hope of ultimate victory Mickey has for his Tigers, now trail ing two games to one, rests in the mental stimulus of the return to the batting order he used most of the season in the drive to the American League pennant. Tow-ard the end of the campaign, Greenburg hit so hard Mickey had to shove him up forward But Greenburg, at the moment, is the hitting goat of the series. He woke up in the ninth inning of yes terday's conflict, first of three games here as the battlefield shifted from Detroit, but his gesture, a ponderous triple to center with two out, scoring Jo Jo White, who had singled, only gerved to rob the second of the fan tastic brothers Dean, li’l brother Paul, of a shutout. As it was, young brother Paul mere ly hitched up his pants, heaved one down the middle that Goslin popped to Frankie Frisch for the final out and trotted off the field with the •creams of the packed Missouri stands heralding his 4-to-l victory. He had won as easily as big brother Diz did or the opening day. with more oi ’the same to come any time Frisch cared to call on them. Paul provided Cochrane with the reasons for demoting Greenburg lonp before suffering Hankus cold-cockec a cripple Paul was trying to streak through there for the third strike anc the shutout.

PINGHOT DECLARES Refuses to Be Drawn Into “Small-Boy Argument” by Democrats. By the Associated Press. MILFORD. Pa , October 6.—Reply ing to Democratic charges, Gov. Pinchot said today he declines "to be led away from the main issue” of the political campaign into a "small-boy kind of argument.” The Governor's staiement was made in commenting upon Democratic blasts against his Wilkes-Barre speech, in which he came out "strong" for Wil liam A. Schnader, Republican nominee for Governor, and assailed the candi dacies of George H. Earle, Schnader’* Democratic opponent, and Joseph P. Guffey. Democratic nominee for United States Senator. Stands on Statement. "I decline to be led away from the main issue in the small boy kind of argument: you did—I didn't—you did, too—I did not,” he said. “Even if I were, as Lawrence, Mar giotti and George the Third would have you believe, a combination of Beelzebub. Dillinger. Capt. Kidd and Sawney Bean, would that wipe out the record against Guffey, or make Earle fit to be Governor? "Would it make two-thirds Joe and George the other third into a com petent manager for the common wealth? "Answer that question for yourself. "As for me. I have made my state ment and I stand on it.” FARLEY RllSHES^O AID. Swings Support to Guffey in Key stone Campaign. BY G. GOULD LINCOLN. The Democratic organization, through Chairman Farley of the Na tional Committee, has rushed to the aid of Joseph F. Gulley and George H. Earle, the party candidates for Senator and Governor in Pennsyl vania, following Gov. Gifford Pinchot's blistering attack on these gentlemen. Farley, after a talk with President Roosevelt at the White House, issued a statement accusing Gov. Pinchot of political somersaulting Pinchot has in the pas; been considered a "Roose velt Republican.” a strong friend of the New Deal. He made his campaign for the Republican senatorial nomi nation last Spring largerly as a New : Dealer and as a bitter enemy of Sen ! ator Reed, Republican, who defeated Pinchot in the primary election. Praised Roosevelt. Even in his Wilkes-Barre speech of Thursday night, attacking Guffey and Earle, Gov. Pinchot spoke in high terms of President Roosevelt. Farley's statement, however, seems to indicate the Pennsylvania Governor no longer is listed among the friends of the President. It is no secret that Democrats have been encouraged to believe that they had a chance to carry Pennsylvania in November, electing a Governor and Senator. The attack made by Gov. Pinchot on their candidates is admit tedly somewhat of a blow. It was not so long ago that Pinchot, because of his strong opposition to Reed and others of the Republican leaders in Pennsylvania, was looked upon as an ally by the Democrats. Pinchot has a considerable follow ing. His support of the Republican ticket so far as Attorney General Schnader, the gubernatorial candi date, is concerned, and his attack upon Guffey may have considerable effect. The Democrats are doing all they can to offset this attack by charging he is “disloyal” and was recently hand and glove with the Democrats. Chairman Farley's statement, is sued through the Democratic National Committee, follows: "Gov. Pinchofs political somersault is, to say the least, a trifle bewildering. In his speech announcing his return to the Republican party, he pro claimed his high regard for and deep confidence in President Roosevelt and the President's policies. I wonder how he reconciles this with his definite purpose to aid in the re-election as United States Senator of David A. Reed, who is perhaps the most out standing foe of the President's policies and who will, if he is re-elected—which (Continued on Page 2, Column 4.) EDWARDS ICI GUILTY AND JURY ASKS DEATH CHAIR Young Surveyor Convicted of “American Tragedy” Slaying of Girl. YOUTH VISIBLY MOVED, HEARS VERDICT ALONE Tremble* When Led Back to Jail. Counsel Plans Appeal—Few fcee End of Trial. By the Associated Pres*. WILKES-BARRE. Pa.. October 6.— Robert Allen Edwards, the youthful surveyor who called himself a "lady's ; man.” was convicted today of the I American Tragedy" slaying of Freda I McKechnie. unemployed telephone op- ! erator. The jury recommended death in the electric chair. Edwards sat almost alone as he heard the verdict. Only Frank Me Guigan, jr.. of his counsel was beside 1UU1. Edwards listened with bowed head. He slumped forward in his chair as the poll of the jury was made. There were only a tew persons in the court room when the Jury filed in. District Attorney Thomas M. Lewis said: "It was a very proper verdict. It has been my hardest task, but Justice must prevail, as it has in this case.” Edwards trembled as he was led handcuffed back to his cell In the county Jail. John Phillips of defense counsel announced before the case went to the jury last night that the case will be appealed. Jurors Slept T*« Hours. The jury retired for three hours of sleep at 2:35 o'clock this morning, but resumed deliberations at 6 o'clock Edwards was accused of bludgeon ing to death Miss McKechnie as they swam together in Harveys Lake the night of July 31. Miss McKechnie was to have be come a mother and the Stale charged that Edwards killed her so he could be free to marry Margaret L. Crain. East Aurora, N. Y., teacher, whom he had met at Mansfield Teachers' College several yeara ago. Judge Commends Verdict. Edwards was up at daybreak, ate a hearty breakfast and smiled as he was told to prepare for the verdict. But he was scowling and paie as he was led into the court room. Judge Valentine thanked the jury, saying: “I commend you for vour verdict. It meets with mv appeal. You have performed your duty.” Back at his cell in the county jail, Edwards threw himself upon his bunk. The young surveyor, whose calm never deserted him through the hours of relentless cross-examination, ap peared near nervous collapse. Edwards' father, Daniel, a mine "boss.” who sat behind his son throughout the entire trial and a few days ago said gruffly that "I will stick by my boy to the end,” was not in the court room. Judge Valentine said he had not decided when he will pass the death sentence on Edwards. This can be done at any time during the October term of court, he said. Formal appeal notice must be filed within four days. This will act as a stay of sentence, the court explained. The appeal will be argued during the week of October 29. and It may be mid-November before the case Is finally disposed of in the Luzerne County Court. Court officials pointed out that Ed wards has a chance of escaping the death penalty should Warden William Healy recommend mental examination of the prisoner. EX-WORKER MISSING WITH E.W. A. CHECKS « 119 of Staff Are Paid Out of Cash Relief Funds After Error. District officials clipped into direct relief cash funds today to pay off 119 emergency works employes after an unauthorized man called at the dis bursing office, collected check pay ments totaling *1.039 for the men and failed to appear at the pay-off station. When the checks failed to arrive at the Playground Department work shop at Thirty-sixth and Prospect streets, where the workmen were to be paid, a flurry of excitement en sued as various District officials started a search for the checks. Police were asked to look for E. A. Palmer, who MaJ. James A. Lusby re ported was given the checks. Palmer for some months was employed as a foreman under the District Emergency Works Administration, and placed in charge of improvements on play grounds. Each Saturday he had been calling at Lusby’s office to collect the checks for the workmen. William C. Cleary, secretary of the E. W. A., said Palmer had been dis charged six weeks ago. When Lusby learned this, he ordered payment of the check stopped, and direct relief funds were drawn upon to pay the men today. — — ■■ — - ■ i HAL INN CASE Foley Confident German Will Be Found Guilty of Extortion. CONFERS WITH KIDNAP SUSPECT AND HIS WIFE Mrs. Hauptmann Wishes She Could Remember Events of Three Years Back. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, October District Attorney Samuel J. Foley declared to day that his case against Bruno Rich ard Hauptmann, alleged Lindbergh extortionist, was complete "with the exception of some slight details.'’ Foley said he was ready to go to trial and expressed his conviction that Hauptmann would be found guilty of the extortion charge. The district attorney’s announce ment followed shortly after a meeting between the German carpenter and his wife in Foley's office. Wishes She Ceuld Remember. Hauptmann ana nu wue, wno nas consistently declared her husband could not have been connected in any way with either the kidnaping of the Lindbergh baby or the extortion, were together for about 15 minutes. Haupt mann was led to the courthouse from the Bronx County Jail by four sher iff's deputies. Following the meeting Mrs Haupt mann was asked what her husband had said. "He talked just like anybody else," she replied. Asked if she could remember what Hauptmann did the night of April 2. 1932, when Dr. John F. "Jafsie” Condon tossed $50,000 ransom money j to an emissary of the kidnapers over the wall of a Bronx cemetery, Mrs. Hauptmann exclaimed: "If only I could remember three years back it would be such a help." She placed this evaluation on the evidence brought out thus far by the district attorney: “If people would only tell the truth," she said, "everything will be all right." Declare Suspect Sane. Four of the five alienists who ex amined Hauptmann yesterday my that he. is sane. Not only is the German carpenter sane, but he show* no sign of ever having suffered any uantal ailment, the experts declared in a report which they submitted to District Attorney Samuel J. Foley of Bronx County The report was signed by Dr*. James B. Spradley and James A. Con nelly of New Jersev, and Drs S. Philip Goodhart and Richard H. Hoff man of the Bronx. The fifth psychiatrist, Dr. James H. Huddelson, retained by the defense, is preparing an Independent report tor submission to Hauptmann's counsel. He declined to discuss his findings Will Seek Acceaa to Records. Legal activity Monday is also sched uled in the Bronx. The prisoner's at torney, James Nf. Fawcett, will ask for a court order permitting him to inspect grand jury records. This move is preliminary to a motion to dismiss the Indictment. John Perrone, the taxicab driver who delivered a ransom note to Dr. Condon, revealed last night what he described as an attempt on his life, and said he could recognize an ac complice of Hauptmann as well as laenuiy naupunann as we man wnu gave him the note. An automobile swerved in a delib erate attempt to run him down nearly a year ago. Perrone told investigators. He leaped to safety on the running board of his cab. The accomplice, the taxi man as serted, had stepped from his cab just before Hauptmann approached and gave him a dollar to deliver the note. Davis May Be Proaecutor. The Philadelphia Inquirer said to day that it had learned from an "un official but unimpeachable source in New. York City” that New Jersey had retained John W. Davis one-time presidential candidate, to assist in its prosecution of Hauptmann. The newspaper said Gov. A. Harry Moore and Attorney General David T. Wilentz of the Garden State refused to discuss the matter. Davis was un available for comment. The Inquirer's informant said he would serve as spe cial counsel without being sworn In as a deputy attorney general. Another development was the an nouncement of Alexander Simpson, special prosecutor In the Hall-Mills murder trial, that friends of Haupt mann had asked him to defend the war-time German machine gunner if he is extradited to New Jersey. No decision has been reached, Simpson said. DANCER IS ARRESTED FOR FATAL STABBING Bond Clerk Bleeds to Death in Woman's Apartment—Flight Wrecks Auto. By the Associated Press. MONTREAL, October 6.—Senorita Doiorez Lopez, in whose apartment William Owen, a bond clerk, died of a stab wound early today, was taken into custody by police a few hours later. j The girl is a Spanish dancer. Owen, an Englishman, was found bleeding to death of a shoulder wound in her apartment by Dr. J. P. Hamelin, who had been called there by the girl. Senorita Lopes disappeared from the apartment while the doctor ministered to the dying man. Apparently, she drove away in Owen's automobile, for police found it wrecked against a telephone pole in a suburb. In the ear was a blood stained knife, a pair of woman’s shoes and a purse. The police made a house-to-house search of the neighborhood and found the dancer in the home of a relative. i S RICH MAN SLAYS DOCTOR FOR JIBES Irked by Taunts, Wealthy Property Owner Kills Former Tenant. By the Associated Press. SEATTLE, October Unable, he said, to stand being "pestered and mocked" any longer,'‘Charles G. Duke, 61, wealthy property owner, told po lice last night he shot and killed Dr. L. W. Squier for Imitating Duke's limping walk. The shooting occurred yesterday on a street here. Duke surrendered. For a year there had been a feud over money matters between Duke, the landlord, and Squier. an osteopath tenant, police said. Duke had ob tained a judgment against Squier and his partner for non-payment of rent. Duke said Squier. with mimicry, cat calls and jibes, with peculiar garb and aflectad posturs had "pestered" him. Mocked His Limp. Yesterday they met. Dr. Squier and two companions approached Duke. Duke said the doctor, quaintly dressed, was mocking the landlord's limp. Police said Duke shot Squier through the heart, and the doctor, wearing a high silk hat. long, flapping black overcoat and cane, toppled over without a word. Squier. Dr. N. E. Nelson, dentist, and C. F. Bertelson, real estate man. had stood on the street in front of his building, Duke said, and taunted him until he begged them to go away. "I went back to my room in the rear of the building." Duke told police, "and got my pistol from under my pillow, then went back to my work, loosening up the dirt in the front shrubbery plot with a fork. Squire Dared Fare Gun. The three men came across the street, and I warned them to stay back. But they kept coming. Then I pulled out my pistol and warned them to stay back. But Squires told the others he wasn't scared of my gun. He Kept on wanting towara me— he wasn't more than 5 or 6 feet from me, and I pulled the trigger.” Nelson and Bertelson, who were held by police as material witnesses, said they and Squier had been no more bothersome to Duke than he to them. They said Duke ‘hounded” Squier and Nelson about the rent money for'months, yelling jibes at them every time he saw them on the street.

The gales of mirth swelled tremend ously in the vast cathedral square into which the listeners had fought to-be near their Duce. Possibly the laughter was spontane ous. but it was possible that it was in spired by a wink of Mussolini's eye as he finished the phrase.

October 6 — Putting into practice the 30-hour week which it advocates, the Ameri can Federation of Labor convention turned to leisure here today after hearing Secretary of Labor Perkins predict a future free of costly strikes. The week-old conflict In the ranks over the building trades department break was in the hands of an Adjust ment Committee after it had reached a crisis on the convention floor, while a threatened fight over the statements of a labor attorney appeared to have been averted by the federation presi dent.

After present building trades offi cers had appealed from a ruling of the federation's Executive Council ordering them to admit three ••out cast” international unions, the con vention placed the controversy in the hands of the Adjustment Committee.

The present building trades ranks number 400.000. Green turned aside the threatened fight when he obtained withdrawal of a resolution demanding that, an at tack by Joseph Dadway, Wisconsin Federation of Labor attorney, on At torney General Cummings and the Department of Justice be stricken from the convention's records.

BY W. R. McCALLL’M. KENWOOD, Md.. October 6 —Play ing through a driving rain over a course virtually flooded and under conditions which rendered good scor ing impossible, two score of the Na tion's leading golf professionals and a smattering of local entrants from i Washington and nearby cities strove i to match the tough par of 70 for the I Kenwood Country Club course today in the opening round of the 54-hole National Capital open golf tourney. The inclement weather which has j consistently dogged the Capital open tourney changed today from the cold wind of last year to a driving rain which went through sweaters and i raincoats and drenched the players before they had finished the first hole. Putting greens coated with a half inch of water forbade good putting. Winter rules, permitting the lie to be improved, were in effect. Already soft and soggy, the course rapidly became soaked as the rain increased. Most of the contestants had little trouble with their long shots, but they complained of water soaked greens on which they couldn’t putt. The gallery was small. Barnett Lowest at Turn. Bob Barnett, Chevy Chase pro. reached the turn in 37 for the lowest nine score. He played the next three ; holes in 1 above par.

NEW YORK, October 6.—A nugget the size of a pinhead—half gold and half silver—the first of the precious metals dissolved in the ocean ever to be recovered, is the latest feat of American chemistry. The extraction of this gold and sil ver from Atlantic Ocean water near Wilmington. N. C., was announced to the New York section of the American Chemical Society here last night by Dr. Willard H. Dow of the Ethyl Dow Chemical Co. This company extracts bromine from sea water near Wilmington. When its plant opened just nine months ago, it was not even dreamed that gold and silver also could be re covered from the water. The fact that there was gold in the sea wns well known. But the difficulties of ex traction were generally conceded to be insurmountable. But at the bromine plant it was found that the sulphuric acid poured into the sea water to help recover bro mine had changed the chemico-elec trical nature of the gold and silver. This first extraction is not com mercial. Its value is in proof that the spectroscope has been correct in its indications of the presence and the nature of the gold and silver. The spectroscope showed from 1 to 3 pounds of gold running daily in the waste sea water from the bromine plant and about 6 pounds of silver daily. This small bit was extracted from 12 tons of water by mixing in colloidal sulphur. Assays of various oceans have shown that sea gold is richest in the fjords of Norway. San Francisco Bay is credited as the second richest known gold waters. Mercury in recoverable form has also been detected in the bromine Water waste at Wilmington.

MADRID, October 6—The death toll in spain'* extremist rebellion mounted to 104 persons at noon to day, with at least 350 wounded, as machine guns, rifle* and pistols ob literated a government statement that tranquility had been restored. At dawn the death list stood at 93 and the government of Premier Ale jandro Lerroux, against which the anarchists, Communists and Socialists had declared war, stated the general strike was a failure and that troops were being withdrawn from most of the battle fronts of the last two days. Suddenly the extremists renewed battle. Eleven more persons were killed in clashes during the morning. Asturias Accounts for Six. Trouble in the mining regions of Asturias accounted for six of the morning's dead In Madrid, a boy of 14 on his way to school and an unidentified laborer were killed when caught in a cross fire between Extremists and Civil Guards in the Cuatro Caminos dis trict. Extremists attacked the Civil Guard barracks at Colminar Viezo and sev eral were wounded in the ensuing battle. A general strike was declared in Escorial, Victoria. Authorities in various outlying towns of Asturias reported continuous firing between groups of ambushed miners and detachments of troops and up until noon no one had been able to estimate just how many had been killed and wounded in this guerrilla warfare but it was regarded as likely that the casualties were many. In Madrid. Syndicalists and Communists maintained a running fire on guards from the rooftops of houses on Pablo Igleslas street. The government or dered soldiers to start a house-to house attack in an effort to rout the snipers. Extremists blasted the Rcmonta barracks with a volley of rifle fire, tben fled when the troops fired back. Machine Guns on Roofs. A regiment of cavalry clattered into San Sebastian with orders to cut down every one who offered any resistance but the casualties as a result were only five wounded. That city was placed in the hands of the authorities by the army mounting machine guns on the roofs throughout the strategic HUtpirtg In Bilbao the extremist strike was tightened, completely paralyzing the city. The strikers shot and killed a merchant who defied their orders and tried to keep his shop open. The situation in Zaragoza was re ported ••tumultuous.” Many dead were seen in the streets. The governor of the Province of Zaragoza ordered army reinforcements in to relieve the beleaguered government troops there. Five extremists were killed and several wounded in Oviedo, in the first trouble in the provincial capital, and in Madrid three were killed. In cluding a guard, in an interchange of shots. Reports from Trubia )said workers in an arms factory there had armed themselves from the company store room, seized the plant, and success fully withstood the assault of troops. One of those killed was a young girl and two others In high social circles. The new Madrid outbreak was be tween a group of workers and guards in front of a hotel. Sporadic shooting was resumed in the mining region and resulted in a number of casualties. More than 1.000 have been ar rested. Communications lines were destroyed in many places, and the rebels were re established in various northern prov inces where mosi of the outbreaks oc curred. Troops acting under martial law es tablished early today in Asturias are shooting all rebels found with arms. No reports of casualties have been re ceived from Turon Aller and Langeo, where it is known there was severe fighting. , Arms Center Quiet Two more Socialists were killed and six wounded at. Mondragon after they opened fire on troops from ambush. The important arms center of Eibar was quiet after it was retaken by the troops in a five-hour battle which counted most of the casualties. The movement, which reached great proportions in parts of Catalonia and Aragon, particularly in Sabadell and Zaragosa. was quickly suppressed. The revolutionary effort to force all workers out apparently was a failure, with most employes remaining at their posts, and those who joined it return ing to work after a few hours. Min ister of Communications Jalon said mail distribution would be normal today. Early morning developments in cluded the discovery of an arms de posit at Tetuan, outside the capital, and several mmor clashes in the sub urban districts of Madrid. U. S.
