German Press Says Reich
‘Prosperity’ Attracts
Semitic Race.
Large German cities have been
tenters of a renewed and violent
campaign against members of the
Jewish race in the last few days.
Shops and restaurants owned by
Jews have been invaded and
"bucket squads" have painted their
fronts with insulting inscriptions in
red. In some cases the stores have
been looted and Jews beaten in the
Br the Associated Press.
BERLIN, June 21.—Stung by eye
witness reports in American and other
foreign newspapers, the German press
today broke its silence on the anti
Semitic drive which seems aimed at
‘'cleansing” Berlin of its 140,000 Jews.
A scornful editorial in the leading
Nazi organ, Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hit
ler's own Voelkischer Beobachter,
sought to justify the drive as an "act
of self-defense by the people against
Jews who are swamping Berlin, espe
cially from Austria.”
Although the drive begun June 1
continued, the ministry of economy ex
empted foreign Jews living abroad
from property registration regulations
which the United States had pro
tested. New regulations also relaxed
the rules as they apply to German
Jews living abroad.
“Material Property of Reich.”
•'Paradoxical though it may seem,”
the Beobachter declared, "the louder
the foreign press has railed about
anti-Jewish persecutions, the more
the Jews have wanted to come here.
"It is the material prosperity of the
Reich that attracts them and makes
them submit willingly to any restric
tions placed upon them for the Jews
are notoriously thick-skinned.”
The Beobachter charged the new
influx consisted primarily of "smug
glers of drugs and currencies, coun
terfeiters and professional swindlers."
It accused the Jews also of "behaving
with intolerable impertinence” to Ar
yan women and girls.
The exemption of some J^vs from
property registration regulations mod
ified a decree of Field Marshal Her
mann Wilhelm Goering April 27 which
hinted that Jewish-owned property
might be confiscated after being re
ported to the government.
Foreign Jews living abroad were
freed from the necessity of registering
property they hold in Germany. Ger
man Jews living abroad were given
more time. The period was extended
from June 30 to July 31 for those liv
ing elsewhere in Europe and to Octo
ber 30 for German Jews residing out
side Europe.
Hugh R. Wilson, United States
Ambassador, protested May 11 against
application of the decree to the Ger
man property of American Jews.

Thirteenth street northwest, Washing
ton, young employe in Ewald's Drug
Store at North Beach told county
and State officers the man and woman
got into the rear seat of a blue sedan
with District license tags and drove
off with another couple after their
fight attracted attention of passersby.
He noticed the affair particularly
because, he said, the fat, nearly-bald
man stopped to pull up his white
trousers between each swing of hi*
fists as he hit the woman several
times on the face and head while they
stood beside the car. The woman, hi
added, held her hands down as if to
sard off blows from her abdomen, a
fact considered possibly significant by
investigators since the autopsy showed
the woman normally would have given
birth to a son in four or five months
Taken by State's Attorney Dowell,
Corpl. Charles W. Magaha of the
Maryland State Police and Mr. Duke
to view the body late last night.
Browning told them it might be the
same woman, but he could not say
May Ask D. C. Police Aid.
‘ This development is another cir
cumstance to be considered in our
Investigation of the case.” Mr. Dowell
laid, indicating Washington police
may be asked to help trace the
fat man.
Corpl. Magaha left early today for
Baltimore to consult with Capt. Ed
ward McKim Johnson of the State
police about the case and to take con
tents of the woman's stomach to Dr.
Howard A. Maldeis, Baltimore City
post-mortem physician, for analysis.
It was thought he might go to Wash
ington later in the day to check with
the Missing Persons Bureau there.
The woman's lips and part of her
cheeks had been eaten away, appar
ently by turtles, while she lay in the
water, but authorities believed she
could be identified easily by relatives
or close friends.
The only other wounds on her body
were a dozen superficial cuts about
her face and head, which were not
sufficient to have caused death, in the
opinion of Dr. Jett and Dr. Everard
Briscoe, who assisted him in the
autopsy. There was no evidence of
criminal assault and no bruises on the
body such as would have resulted had
she been struck by an automobile. The
cuts apparently were inflicted by a
piece of sharp glass such as might
come from a broken glass in an au6
tomobile accident, Dr. Jett aided, but
he emphasized these cuts could not
have been responsible for death.
Suicide Is Doubted.
Unless analysis of her stomach dis
closes poison, Dr. Jett said he would
believe the woman had been smothered
or possibly strangled to death with a
heavy cloth around her neck that
would leave no marks. He did not
believe it likely she could have com
mitted suicide and agreed with Mr.
Dowell, Deputy Sheriff Ernest W.
Rawlings and other investigators that
the indications pointed to murder.
Mr. Rawlings, acting sheriff in the
protracted illness of Sheriff M. M.
Buckler, said the most plausible the
ory appeared to be that the woman
was killed and then thrown into the
creek from an automobile headed
toward Washington on the Southern
Maryland boulevard which is traveled
heavily by Washingtonians going to
and from various beaches.
Her body was found floating be
side the boulevard bridge over Lyons
Creek by two colored men, Richard
Gray and Vernon Ijams, as they
walked along the road from a nearby
store yesterday morning.
Apparently the body had been
thrown there Sunday night. Officers
were told two boys fished at the spot
Sunday afternoon without noticing
anything unusual. The body was to
wedged among marshy growth In the
Witness Tells S. E. C. Quiz
He Blocked Effort to
Liquidate Portfolio.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, June 21.—Franklin E.
Mayer, industrial manager, told the
Securities and Exchange Commission
at a hearing into investment trusts
today that he blocked the efforts of a
group of promoters to liquidate the
portfolio of the Reynolds Investing Co.
Mr. Mayer, who said he negotiated
the sale of the Investment Trust to the
group for a commission of $35,000,
testified that a requirement of the
consummation of the deal was that
he be made a director on the new
board. He was also vice president.
Earlier testimony had shown that
$882,500 of securities from the com
pany’s portfolio were liquidated and
used to buy preferred stock of the
Fiscal Management Co., Ltd., a Cana
dian holding company. Part of the
funds, according to the testimony,
were used to acquire control of the
Reynolds Co.
Declines to Resign.
Mr. Mayes testified he was asked
to approve liquidation of $2,000,000 of
the company’s portfolio. He said he
refused and was requested to resign
his directorship. He declined to re
sign, he said, unless the $882,500
transaction was rescinded.
District Attorney Thomas E. Dewey,
who investigated investment trusts
during the spring, said a group pyra
mided an original $5 investment to a
point where they got control of seven
investment trusts with combined as
sets of $16,000,000 by using securities
of the trusts’ own portfolios to pur
chase control. Six men have been in
Mr. Mayer testified the Reynolds
Co. was sold last December 31 to Sar
tell Prentice of the brokerage firm of
Prentice & Brady acting for a group
of promoters.
Signed Predated Letters.
On January 11, Mr. Mayer said, he
complained to Vincent E. Ferretti,
New York lawyer, who is under indict
ment, that the new board was taking
’’unfair advantage" of the investors.
Mr. Ferretti and Mr. Prentice, Mr
Mayer testified, asked him to sign con
firmations of the sale of securities,
which had been liquidated to raise the
$882,500. Mr Mayer said he signed the
confirmations, a series of predated let
ters. on January 13. with the under
standing that the South American
utilities deal be "put into the vaults
of the Reynolds Investing Co."

is the highest paid of the 670 men on
the force.
Although he speaks seven languages,
Mr. Torrou did not hesitate to grow a
beard and go to work as a laborer
while investigating sabotage of the
airship Akron while it was under con
Aided Lindbergh Case.
He was one of the three Federal
agents who dug up the Lindbergh ran
som money in the Bronx garage of
Bruno Richard Hauptmann in Sep
tember, 1934, and was one of the
agents who persuaded Hauptmann to
furnish samples of his handwriting
which later were used with telling
effect against the German carpenter
at his trial.
At other times he worked on the
Kansas City slaying of F. B. I. agents,
the election fraud cases in Indiana
and the Guillaume Rozen kidnaping,
first international abduction.
He was advanced to top grade in
the bureau after wiping out a vicious
white slave ring in Connecticut and
obtaining the conviction of 40 per
sons, including bank robbers, counter
feiters and killers. He has also
smashed white slave gangs in Balti
more and other Atlantic seaboard
During the World War Mr. Turrou
served overseas with the marines and
was twice wounded in action. After
the war he was sent to Moscow as
assistant chief of the administrative
division in charge of feeding 10.000,000
starving Russians during the great
famine in the U. S. S. R.
water that officers said it apparently
could not have floated there from
elsewhere along the creek.
Body Taken to Hospital.
After several hours' investigation on
the spot by officers called to the
scene by the colored men. the body
was taken to the Calvert County
Hospital here for the post-mortem
examination yesterday afternoon.
Dr. Jett described the dead woman
as between 30 and 40 years old, 5
feet 6 inches tall and weighing 150
pounds. She had extremely dark
brown hair and either blue or gray
eyes. She wore a zipper girdle, a
pink slip, silk stockings rolled to
her anrkles and black shoes in addi
tion to the flowered dress and under
wear with the Washington store label.
Except for the stepins. the other gar
ments bore only manufacturers’ labels.
She had a full set of teeth, with gold
crowns on the first and second bi
cuspids on each side.
The body showed no signs of a
struggle, Dr. Jett said. Her hair pins
were not disturbed. One of these was
an unusual 4-inch pin with a brass
knob on the end.

Loss of Craft Against Potomac
Piles Was Skipper’s Own
Fault, He Holds.
A bill awarding $1,000 to Asa M.
Ketchum of Pairmount, Md., for loss
of his boat on the Potomac River in
August, 1933, when it rammed into ob
solete piles off Gravelly Point, was
vetoed today by President Roosevelt,
according to an Associated Press dis
patch from Hyde Park, N. Y.
Mr. Ketchum’s boat was hauling
oyster shells to an Alexandria (Va.)
fertilizer plant at the time of the col
lision. His son previously had pur
chased the boat, the J. J. Underhill,
from the Government for $20.
The President held Mr. Ketchum's
troubles were of his own making, as
he was out of the regular channel when
the accident occurred.

President’s Commission to
Visit England First for
Fact Survey.

President Roosevelt’s proposed study
of British labor laws may be extended

The suggestion that Swedish groups
be included, labor experts said, de

close co-operation with industrial em
Mr. Roosevelt announced a few
weeks ago he would send a special
commission to England during the
summer for a fact-finding study of
the British Trade Union Act.
The President said it was his own
idea to survey the laws under which
British labor and industry carry on
collective bargaining. He said he
wanted the commission to bring back
a clear and simple explanation of the
working of the British statutes, but
denied that the study was preliminary
to any changes in the American Wag
ner Labor Act.
The President’s commission is ex
pected to include representatives of
both employers and employes, but John
L. Lewis’ C. I. O., will not be repre
sented. Mr. Lewis withdrew from
participation in the study when pub
