SEPTEMBER 23, 1921 baby shortly after 6 o'clock Wednes day evening, and at the point of a gun commanded her to enter his au tomobile. When she hesitated, she said, he seized her roughly by the wrist and literally threw her into the tonneau of the automobile. The baby fell from Mrs. Biehn'B arms and bruised its head on the floor of the automobile. The kidnaper is then said to have driven for some time and then to have stopped at 56th and M strets. After submitting Mrs. Biehn to a close scrutiny he is alleged to have ordered her from the car, saying: "You're not the one I want. Beat It and keep still." He then drove off. Remembers License Number Mrs. Biehn made note of the license number of the kidnaper's car and, as her assailant was unmasked, she obtained a clear view of his fea tures. The car bearing the license re ported by Mrs. Biehn to the police. No. 76231, was listed to a Maxwell, transferred to a Ford, belonging to Shincke. When the officers, accompanied by Mrs. Biehn and her mother-inlaw, Mrs. John Biehn, reached Shincke's farm the man was not at home, but out hunting. When he appeared through the brush carrying a shot gun Mrs. Biehn, gazing through the rear window of the automobile, faint ed at the sight of him. When she was revived she told the officers she was absolutely certain that Shincke was the man who had kidnaped her. Submitted to a severe grilling by the police, Shincke denied al of Mra. Biehn's allegations and denied all connection with the matter. He said he hid never seen Mrs. Biehn before and had not ben in town for several weeks. The last time he visited Ta coma, he told the police, was when arrested with a large number of other residents o! the Bald Hills oa a charge of moonshinlng. His trial on this charge has not yet come up In federal court. Shlncke told the police he could produce a perfect alibi. He is mar ried and has four children. "I never heard of anything so ab surd in my life," he is said to hav<3 told police officers when they took him to his cell, where he was helft pending further investigation. "I, a man with a wife and four children, held in jail for kidnaping!" GIANTS TAKE LEAD BUT OTHER LEAGUES ARE STILL KNOTTED McGraw's Team Looks Good—Yank3 and Indians Fighting Hard— Coast League Upset And still they're all knotted up. The unexpected happened in the Coast league and In the National league but with decidedly different effect in the two leagues. In the American the champion Indians and the battling Yanks are still fighting it out, with neither team having any edge. Pans the country over are thrilled as they watch the scoreboards which tell the stories of day to day batles of the leagues. The unexpected In the National league included the crumbling of the strong offense and defense of the Pitsburgh Pirates, leaders nearly all season, and the rise of John McGraw's Giants to heights from which the Plrntes have little chance of dislodg ing them in the few remaining game* The Giants now have a lead of four and one-half games. They play their last game with Pittsburgh today. The Yankees have a lead of a bare fraction of a game In the American this morning, by virtue of a win over Detroit yesterday, while Walter Johnson and the Senators were crushing the Indians. This does not tell the story of the past week, how ever, for that period saw Cleveland put an end to the string of defeats that carried the Indians down to sec and place and win seven straight games, while New York took but four out of seven. The Yanks have the advantage of playing practically al the remaining games at home, while the Indians finish on the road. The final result, however, is likely to be told in the next series between the Yanks and the Indians which comes the latter part of this week. The unexpected in the Coast league was the upset of all four first divi sion teams by the second divisioners. Portland and Seattle, stopped by rain yesterday, are to play two games to day if the weather man will permit. The series now stands Portland 4. Seattle 3. The Oaks mangled the Seals in steam roller fashion during the week, taking five out of seven games. Los Angeles, erstwhile leaders, lost the odd game to Vernon in a seven game series. Salt Lake took the odd game from Sacramento. To complete the record in proper fashion, Seattle should divide with Portland today but the Indians hope to take both games and gain a little ground. The remaining two weeks of the schedule give Sjattle some advantage over her rivals in the matter of games at home. Los Angeles comes to Se attle for this week's series, while the rejuvenated Portland Beavers take on San Francisco in Portland. Sac ramento plays at Oakland, while Salt Lake and Vernon mix at Los Angeles. Seattle is the only one of the four leading teams to play at home this week. S Next week Los Angeles goes to Portland to finish the season, while San Francisco plays in Seattle. Should the Seals continue to crumble before Portland this week and then lose in Seattle next week, the Indians still have a chance. Unless the Seals take a sudden brace they stand a good show of being eliminated this week. The Beavers are proving the reve lation of the league. Had they dis played the form earlier in the year that they are showing now they would not be in the cellar. Their pitchers are turning in swell games day after day and their stickers are clouting the offerings of the best op posing pitchers. Seattle has arranged for great sup port from the old home town for the final drive. Some Seattle organiza tion has taken charge of each day for the remaining two weeks. Right down the line to the last day of the season the fans are going to see if they can't yell the Indians into the 1921 pennant Here's the way the standing looks today: Clubs— Won Lost Pet. Los Angeles 99 73 .576 San Francisco 99 74 .572 Sacramento 99 75 .570 Seattle 93 76 .550 Oakland 91 81 .529 Vernon 90 84 .517 Salt Lake 69 100 .408 Portland 46 123 .272 AMERICAN BALLOON ALIGHTS IRISH SEA Swiss Entry Still Missing in Gordon Bennett international Balloon Race ST. LOUIS, Sept. 20. "Landed Irish sea, IS utiles east Dublin, Heyshan harbor." Bernard von Hoffman, pilot of the "City of St. Louis" bal loon, one of the American en* tries in the Gordon Bennett in ternational race repotted as missing in London dispatches, sent that cablegram to his par ents here today. The cable was the second re ceived in two days. Yesterday Ton Hoffman messaged he had landed In Northwest England, but did not state the exact place. NEW LONDON, Sept. 20. Ralph Upson, American, pilot ing the ballooon "Aero Club of America" in the Gordon Ben nett 'international cup race, landed today at Cardigan, In Wales. Upson's flight was believed the longest of any of the 14 con testants and it was possible he would be named winner of the trophy. Two contestants, Bernard von Hoffman of St. Louis, piloting the "City of St. Louis" and a Swiss balloonist, have not been heard from here. The cup is awarded to the balloon landing at the greatest distance from Brussels. LONDON, Sept.* 20.—Two Ameri can and one Swiss entry in the Gor don Bennett international balloon race, were still reported missing at 3 o'clock this afternoon and fears for the safety of the pilots and assist ants were expressed here. Two French balloons which with the Swiss and Americans were aloft early today, have landed. The American balloons which are missing are the "Aero Club of America," piloted by Ralph Upson and the "City of St. Louis" piloted by Bernard von Hoffman. All other entries have landed in safety. Despite the statement from St. Louis to the effect that a cablegram has been received from Bernard von Hoffman, no word of his landing had been received in London this afternoon. ST. LOUIS, Sept. 20.—The balloon "City of St. Louis" entered In the international race for the Gordon Bennett trophy, has landed In North west England, a cablegram received from Bernard von Hoffman, pilot, by his parents said today.

ARBUCKLE'S HEARING MANSLAUGHTER BILL CONTINUED SEPT. 26 Takes Twenty-five Policemen to Handle Crowd Thronging Hall of Justice. SAX FRANCISCO, Sept. 17. —Roscoe (Fatty) Arbuckle's arraignment of the indictment returned by the grand jury charging him with manslaugh ter in connection with the death of Virginia Rappe, film actress today was continued until Sept. 26. Arhuckle appeared at 10:30 before Superior Judge Louder back to answer the charge. It was the fifth courtroom in which he has appeared since a week ago. Attorneys for the state and > defense immediately agreed to the continuance of the arraign ment because of the decision of district Attorney Brady to press the charge of murder. It took !25 policemen to take care of the crowd which throng ed the hall of justice and the street in front. Arbuckle waited in the cham bers of the judge, to avoid the crowd, rolling his own cigarette until his case was called. He appeared less worried than at any time since he was arrested a week ago today. The court proceedings were brief und perfunctionary. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17. V nation-wide scandal probe will result from the disclosures of the secrets of th«j "Fatty" Arbuckle party, District Attorney Matthew Brady intimated here today. An appropriation of SI,OOO was obtained from the board of supervi sors to run down the rumors of wide spread scandal which have developed from the investigation which followed the arrest of Roscoe Arbuckle, in connection with the death of Virginia Rappe, actress, a guest at the party. Brady Wants More Money Brady declared the SI,OO will be insufficient to obta'n the prosecuting evidence he desires. He said ho would appeal for more money when the supervisors meet Monday. While his prosecutors made plans for the widespread investigation Arbuckle still rested In his cell in Jail here. He will be arraigned today on a manslaughter charge returned in an indictment by the grand jury. The state, however, has decided not to prosecute on this charge and ha 3 planned its case to obtain Arbuckle's conviction for murder. Charles Brennan, one of Arbuckle'« legal corps, will enter a plea of not guilty to the manslaughter charge and the case probably will be contin ued indefinitely. But it will be impossible for the prosecution to complete its case without additional funds, Brady said. Defense Fund Unliimted "The defense has an unlimited amount of money to be spent," Dep uty A. Golden declared. "Without sufficient funds the prosecution will be defeated before it begins." Brady did not give any details of the probe he expects to begin, but it was believed it will center about Hollywood, the home of the Califor nia movie stars, where rumors of "wild part'eß" have been brought to the police. The body of Miss Rapper was being taken to Los Angeles today, under escort of a representative of an un dertaking establishment. The funer al will be held at Hollywood some time Monday, it was believed. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ELECT CLASS OFFICERS Sophomore* and Freshmen Will Play Football Game to Deride Supremacy.
