PITTSBURGH. Aug. 12.—Mayor Edward J. Kelly of Chicago today demanded that President Rooseveh run for a third term. Before the national convention of Young Democratic Clubs of America that cheered and applauded his Words. Mayor Kelly said he believed b third term was the sentiment of the convention. Recalling Mr. Roosevelt's words that he had enlisted for the duration of the "social struggle." the Mayor said: "In this economic war against starvation and unemployment and in this social struggle against inse curity. Mr. Roosevelt, we demand that you continue as commander in chief of our liberal humanitarian Government. “You have lost your right to your own personal life. You do not be long to yourself. You belong to the people and the people want your continued leadership. More Opportunities. “We want your steady voice to plead our cause. WTe want your steady head and hands to guide us in the American way that we should go. We want you to stay on in the fight to insure more work and wages •—to create more opportunities for men and women on the bottom. "Mr. President, the young democ racy of America will not take 'No' for an answer. • “That, I believe, is the sentiment cf your convention. “That. I believe, is the voice of young democracy that sees only two ways—the way of Roosevelt or the way of reaction—it means go ing forward or going back. “There is the faith of young de mocracy that knows what President Roosevelt has done for you and knows why he must carry on what ever the sacrifice. “There is young democracy's great fight and greater victory in the coming campaign to know and be assured that it's Roosevelt for four more years. “Mr. President, the young de mocracy awaits your answer." Refers to Coalition Fight. Mayor Kelly said he didn't come here to “peddle any sunshine for the New Deal—nor use a tar brush on the Tories" because the "per sonal liberty and the moral security of the whole American people comes i before any party or any philosophy of government." Referring to the coalition fifeht in Congress against the Roosevelt pro gram. he said: “Our people have no use for those Un-American blockades to human progress—those sudden parliamen tary deaths of sound legislation. They have a way of dealing with the cloakroom connivers who preside over the committee burials and fili busters against enactments for mon etary control. “They have pegged the political ‘gangsters' who don't care who suf fers or starves as long as they can put the White House back in Wall Street—and bring back the snatch as-snatch-can methods of the 'tick er-tape 20s.’ ” The final session of the three-day convention got under way an hour and a haff late, but an organist pepped things up to help the dele gates forget the heat.

Squalus Successfully Lifted 80 Feet for First 5-Mile Tow Stern Raised First to That Level, Bow Then Pulled Up to 60 Feet ! By trip Associated Press. PORTSMOUTH, N. H., Aug. 12 — ! Climaxing successful the most dif ficult pfr.se of a history-making salvage operation, the United States Navy today lifted the flooded sub marine Squalus and her 26 dead from the ocean floor that has gripped her almost continuously since May 23. Approximately two hours after the unwieldly stern of the submarine : was lifted from its bed of mud the partially flooded bow was raised to a position about 60 feet from the sea bottom and preparations were made to tow the Squalus and the > salvage ship Falcon to shollower water off the Isle of Shoals about five miles distant. The three topmost bow pontoons surged to the foam-covered sur face only a few feet aw-ay from the side of the Falcon. They came up in beautiful alignment, foam spray ing into the sunlight like a fountain. For the first time since the lifting began at dawn a happy cheer rang out as the pontoons came to rest on the surface. Despite the flurry of the rising, the disturbance did not even approximate the wild surge that accompanied the last salvage effort on July 13 when the bow of the submarine itself suddenly broke water. The Arrangement. The salvage fleet presented a strange spectacle as preparation for towing began. Between the towing tug Wandank and the Falcon bobbed the three pontoons above the stern. The Falcon itself rode almost above the Squalus in double-decker fashion. Astern, acting as a drag anchor for both the submarine ana the salvage ship, was the tug Saga more. To port rode the submarine Sculpin, sister of the Squalus, while to starboard a small fleet ot Coast Guard and Navy vessels served a similar purpose of steadying the pontoons. Shortly before 9 a m. (E. S. T.) the three pontoons attached to the tremendously heavy water-filled stern of the craft broke the sur face amid a wild flurry of foam, indicating the after compartment had been lifted 80 feet from the bottom. Without warning, save for a sud den burst of air bubbles, the tnree topmost stern pontoons broke the surface simultaneously, throwing foam fully 15 feet into the air. The pontoons themselves broke almost clear of the water, sank beneath the | surface and rose again to ride side j by side on the calm sea. Working smoothly and without outside sign ot flurry, the stnpped to-the-waist salvage crew ran well within its lifting schedule. The air pumps of the salvage ship Falcon started pounding shortly after 5 l a m. An hour later Admiral C. W. Cole announced the six topmost ! pontoons above the submarine had ; been filled and that action was but : a matter of minutes. Nevertheless, : the Navy worked with great care towards its final goal.

Aug. 12 — An Army plane crashed near here today in the second crackup ana burning of a Langley Field plane in 24 hours. The pilot and a passen ger jumped in parachutes, but it was not learned immediately if they escaped injury. The ship, an attack plane, fell near Fort Eustis. about 15 miles from here, while engaged in a rou tine flight. Post officials said the plane burned. The plane was piloted by Second Lt. C. T. Murrell of the Air Corps Reserves, and the passenger was Pvt. Amelio Lenzeni. Bomber's Crash Probed. A three-man board of inquiry probed, meanwhile, into the flre seared wreckage of a Douglas B-18-A bomber that crashed during a take off killing two commissioned officers and seven enlisted men. The plane, attached to the 21st Reconnaissance Squadron, devel oped trouble shortly after it left the field about 1:30 p.m. yesterday and plunged to the ground from an alti tude of about 150 feet. Lt. Col. Walter Bender, executive officer in charge, said the board's report probably would be made to the War Department within the “next two or three days." Members of the board, appointed immediately after the crash, were Maj. Clarence S. Lober, Capt. Wil liam H. McArthur and Lt. Nicholas E. Powel. 4 „ 4 A..4 ” Witnesses said the big plane had just cleared the field when one of the two motors sounded as if it were "cutting-out.” The pilot, Second Lt. Homer M. Mackav, apparently in an effort to bring the ship down safely, put it into a steep glide to ward the waters of Back River, a short distance away. The plane, however, went into a dive and crashed, bursting into flames almost immediately. Wit nesses said there was an explosion as the plane hit the ground fol lowed by a series of six lesser ex plosions as crash truck and ambu lance crews sped to the scene. The intense heat of gasoline flames spouting from the plane beat back-efforts of rescuers to reach the men imprisoned in the fuselage and it was not until nearly two hours later that the bodies could be re moved from the wreckage. List of the Dead. Col. Bender said no funeral ar rangements for the men would be announced until identification had been completed and relatives had expressed their wishes.

Three physicians of the Mayo Clinic at Rochester, Minn., reported today they had discovered a method of treating certain severe headaches which are due to excessive alcoholic indulgence and other upsets in the body's chemistry. The headaches in question occur when persons develop a condition in which the chemical content of the blood is thrown out of balance, Dr. B. T. Horton, Dr. A. R. MacLean and Dr. W. McK. Crain explained. One of the natural chemicals in the blood is known a shistamine, and apparently either too much or too little of it will cause the violent pains. This is due, the physicians said in a report in the journal Mod ern Medicine, to the fact the blood vessels in the head expand. The causes of this unbalance and the resulting headaches have not been determined exactly, except that alcoholism is known to be one fac tor, it was reported. Histamine headaches are different and often more severe than migraine or any other kind. “The pain is so severe that many patients contemplate suicide.” the physicians said. “It is limited to one side of the head and is of a constant excruciating, burning, boring type, involving the eyes, the temple, the neck and often the face.” The headaches develop and dis appear very quickly, they added, sometimes within a few minutes, but they may last as long as several hours. They usually occur with :locklike regularity at a particular hour of the night and, as a result, persons who suffer from them can not lie down. They are forced to get what sleep they can while sit ting up. In some cases the effect of alco hol in upsetting the histamine bal ance is clearly evident, but com plete abstinence does not cure the headaches. The only successful treatment found is to give the sufferer doses of histamine. Dr. Horton and his associates said, in the same way that a hay fever sufferer is given small doses of pollen until he de velops an immunity to it. The his tamine is given to “desensitize” the sufferer to it, regardless of whether his headaches are caused by too much or too little of the chemical. With this treatment 65 patients have been given permanent relief from their headaches, 10 have had no benefit and 9 could not be reached afterward for a check-up. Some relief is obtained occasionally by keeping one hand in cold water to raise the blood pressure, the physicians added, and by the use of drugs which constrict the blood vessels. However, the histamine desensitization has been the only permanent remedy. l Civil Service Bans Municipal Office Seeking Classified Employes Already Holding Posts Unaffected Yet Bv J. A. FOX. Civil service employes no longer may seek a municipal office in nearby Maryland and Virginia be cause of the political ban of the Hatch Act. the Civil Service Com mission ruled today. Temporarily, the commission left undisturbed the status of Federal employes who are already holding office, announcing that this ques tion is still to be determined and may await a formal ruling by the Department of Justice. Under successive executive orders dating back to 1912. Federal employes who comprise the bulk of the pop ulation in nearby communities have been permitted to hold public office on the ground that this was in the public interest. The commission be lieves, however, that the sweeping prohibitions of the Hatch Act will ban this unless the Hatch Act is amended. In view of the intent of the spon i sors of the Hatch Act to apply civil | service restrictions to non-civii serv i ice employes it is expected that 1 these same bans will be applied to ; office holders who are outside the ; civil service. commission statement. The commission's statement on the matter follows: "The United States Civil Service Commission announced today that under the Hatch Act employes in the executive civil service will be pro hibited from becoming candidates for municipal office. "This has been permitted previ ously in certain municipalities ad joining the District. Certain em ployes of Navy Yards, arsenals and military establishments have been permitted, likewise, td participate actively in local elections. This will not be possible under the Hatch Act which provides that no employe in the executive branch of the Federal Government, or in anv agency or department thereof shall take'any active part in political management or in political campaigns. “The commission has under con sideration the procedure which j should be followed by employes in the competitive civil service who now hold office under the authority granted prior to the passage of the Hatch Act. It is possible that it will refer this question to the De paitment of Justice for decision. Exceptions to Rule. “Up to the time the Hatch Act was signed the political activity of classified employes was governed in part by civil service rule 1 issued by the President under authority of the Civil Service Act of 1883. “Rule 1 reads as follows: -No per i son in the executive civil service i sllail use his official authority or i influence for the purpose of inter fering with an election or affecting ; the results thereof. Persons who, by the provisions of these rules, are in the competitive classified service, while retaining the right to vote as i they please and express privately ; their opinions on all political sub jects. shall take no part in political I management or political campaigns.' “It was legally possible and also advisable because of local conditions to make certain exceptions to rule 1. For example, employes in the ex ecutive civil service permanently re siding in localities adjacent to the District have for many years been permitted by executive order to be i come candidates for or to hold mu | uicipal office. A large proportion of the population of these communities j consists of employes of the Federal 1 Government. A N’ew Situation. A new situation, however arises under the Hatch Act. As it is an act of Congress, exceptions to it cannot be made under an executive order. The only exceptions which could be made would be by action of the Congress itself.” The Civil Service Commission rul ing settles a question that has agi tated nearby communities ever since the Hatch Act was signed.
