Insurance Firm Says Adult Death
Rate Increasing as Acci
dents Mount.
More boys than girls fall victijn to
automobiles because of the greater
venturesomeness of the male sex, sta
tisticians of the Metropolitan Life
Insurance Co. reported in announcing
that the automobile accident death
rate for boys between the ages of 1
and 14 Is two and a half times as
Rreat as for girls of the same age
The bright side of the picture for
the youth of the country as shown in
the report is the fact that the death
rate for boys is decreasing, but the
decrease U offset by an increase in
the death rate for adults The death
rate among boys during 1934 was 19.4
per 100,000 and among girls 7.5 per
100,000. Approximately three-fourths
of the deaths in each classification
resulted from automobiles striking
pedestrians, the report says.
The automobile accident death rate
among adult males for the same pe
riod was 46.0 per 100,000. This was
more than three and a half times the
rate of 13.0 per 100.000 for adult fe
males. More than 40 per cent of
these deaths were caused by automo
biles striking pedestrians.
Colored Man Who Lost Savings in
1933 Again Victim.
Clifford Thomas, colored, of 126
Sixteenth street northeast has a hard
time keeping his money in safety.
Police were searching last night for
a colored man whom Thomas alleges
stole $2,300 In cash from a second
story closet of his home. Only two
persons knew of the whereabouts of
thf money, hidden in a wooden box,
Thomas said, adding it was an inher
itance received with the death of a
relative some months ago.
Thomas lost most of his life savings
in the March, 1933, bank closings.

Deaf Poet Last
To Learn Jury's
Murder Verdict
Skinner Shouts “Unfair
Trial” on Reading
Note on Paper.
By the Associated Press.
DIXON, 111., April 20.—Last person
in the crowded court room to learn
the verdict, Charles Skinner, the deaf,
eccentric poet of Amboy, was con
victed apd sentenced to life impris
onment today for the “love murder”
of 17-year-old Olive Derwent.
Unable to hear the foreman's words
as he read the jury's decision, Skinner
leaned back in his chair and grinned.
But the grin faded, the poet wept
and cried aloud when the court clerk
scribbled the verdict on a slip of
paper and handed it to him.
He leaped to his feet, shouting:
“It was an unfair trial!”
The overflow crowd of spectators
looked on in silence as a dozen armed
deputies surrounded the 43-year-old
Skinner burst into tears when the
escort started him to the county Jail
a block away. Judge Harry Edwards
will pronounce sentence Thursday.
State’s Attorney Everett Jones had
demanded a death penalty.
Miss Derwent, the “little white
snow flake” of Skinner’s poems, was
j shot last January 30 as she sat in a
car with John Scott. Skinner was
' motivated, the State contended, by
unrequited love. Olive, the prosecu
tion maintained, had spurned the re
Criticism of New Deal Held
Almost Certain at
Meeting Here.
By the Associated Press.
Formulation of a business plan to
overcome “obstacles standing in the
way of complete economic recovery”
has become a major purpose of the
April 29 Convention of the United
States Chamber of Commerce.
Its development was regarded as
certain to include criticism of some
Roosevelt policies, especially those
viewed as Government intrusion Into
business. The four-day meeting was
expected to list these among the “ob
The background of business condi
tions for the convention presented, in
the chamber’s opinion, a mixed pic
ture. In its publication, the "Wash
ington Review,” the chamber noted
that the annual meeting "comes at
a time when there are evidences of
progress toward recovery, as well as
evidences of adverse influences."
Output Is Lower.
The business background was por
trayed similarly in the Commerce
Department’s weekly review of con
ditions, which noted that “industrial
output during the first half of April t
was below the March level, which in'
turn was slightly lower than for Feb
Retail trade, it added, made a “rel
atively good showing.”
In announcing the convention,
Henry I. Harriman, chamber presi
dent, said that the gathering would
“mark a further important step in
formulating a national business posi
tion on outstanding economic policies.”
Harriman, who has served three
terms, will .not seek the chamber's
presidency again. Harper Sibley,
banker and large-scale -farmer of
Rochester, N. Y., is a leading candi
date to succeed him.
Legislative Proposals.
The chamber said much of the con
vention discussion “will center around
legislative proposals effecting busi
ness now pending in Congress.”
Despite declining production in the
first half of April, the Commerce De
partment report notad that produc
tion so far in 1035 was above the
same period last year.
There were declines in the first
half of April In cotton textile, steel
and bituminous production, but an
increase in steel production for the
week ended April 20 halted a reces
; sion of about two months.
Wisconsin Group to Hold Lut
Session of Season.
The Wisconsin State Society will
hold its last meeting of the season
Saturday. May 4, at the Shoreham
Hotel, Dr. D. O. Kinsman, president,
announced yesterday.
Miss Pearl Thurber, member of
the board of directors, will be in
charge of the program, which will
consist of a prelude of music and
group singing, followed by dancing
and contract bridge.

New Measure to Protect
Accrued Days Off,
Official Says.
Promise that the pending N. R. A.
extension bill will guarantee to recov
ery agency employes use of leave ac
cumulated before June 10. the date
the present N. R. A. set-up is to die,
was given yesterday by James O’Neill,
the administration’s control officer.
O’Neill told Miss Jessica Buck, sec
retary of N. R. A. Local 91, American
Federation of Government Employes,
that Chairman Doughton, Democrat,
of North Carolina, of the House Ways
and Means Committee, had declared
he would sponsor an amendment mak
ing legal the vacations, endangered by
the present form of the legislation.
The control officer's statement fol
lowed a union protest meeting on the
anomalous situation after Controller
General McCarl had given his opinion
that under the existing form of the
bill employes would be classified as
“new,” and thus would be wiped off the
slate any accrued benefits.
39-Hoar Week Sought.
Meanwhile, a delegation of the
union made plans to call on Bradish
Carroll, N. R. A. executive officer, to
morrow to reach agreement on a
39-hour week for the recovery admin
istration workers.
O’Neil] sent this memorandum to all
division heads of the bureau:
"A notice has been circulated to all
employes calling attention to the
fact that the present draft of the
proposed new recovery act contains no
provision for continuance in office of
N. R. A. employes. The notice further
refers to the possible loss of annual
leave which may have accrued to the
credit of N. R. A. employes up to June
“Please be advised that the present
draft of the new N. R. A. bill Is
merely a skeleton of the bill as It will
ultimately be presented to the House
and Senate. I this morning talked
with Representative Doughton and am
authorised to assure employes that the
interest of all concerned will be pro
tected when the new bill is finally
Service to Be Continuous.
"Assuming that the N. R. A. is con
tinued, the service of employes will
be considered continuous, and all
rights and privileges which are now
enjoyed by the employes will carry
forward into the new term of service.
"All of the foregoing has been passed
along to the secretary of the N. R. A.
union, under whose auspices the cir
cular referred to was issued, but It
seems advisable to make this infor
mation available to all employes who
may be disturbed in regard to this sit
