The plane, bound from Cincinnati to Atlanta, had just taken off from Lunken airport when the propellor of its right-side engine came off and a moment later the engine Itself tore loose and hurtled to the ground! Out of control, the big passenger plane started its death dive while Pilot M. T. Odell, 23, Cincinnati, frantically strove to right it. Witnesses said OdeU apparently at tempted to land the plane in a corn field at the edge of the Little Miami river, and failing that, tried to head for a sand bar on the opposite side. Instead, it smashed into a clay bank, turned over nose first, tore out the l entire front end, and killed the six. The victims were Miss Wrenna B. Hughes, 22, Fort Thomas, Ky., sten ographer; William E. Keith, Atlanta, Ga., radio distributor; W. H. Brim berry, Atlanta. Ga., electrical deal er; V. O. Baum, 39, Memphis, Tenn., contractor; William J. De Wald, 32, Fort Thomas, Ky., co-pilot, and Odell. Airport officials said the accident was caused by a broken hub on the propellor. When the blade came off, the motor revolved at such terrific speed its fastening bolts were unable to hold it. The plane had left the airport hardly one minute and was about 500 feet high when the accident occurred. Gasoline sprayed over the plane when it wrecked but OdeU had shut off his motors and there was no fire. The usual Inspection of the plane was made before the trip and every thing was found to be in good condi tion, airport officials said. Stanley C. Hoffman, general operations manag er of the line and Frank Ware, main tenance manager, said every precau tion had been taken, in preparing the plane for its take off.

The order to abandon the fort, re ceived July 31, was countermanded Saturday but no official explanation was given and officers of the post had no information as to the cause for the change in the announced plan. A Washington dispatch late Satur day said high army officers said the movement of troops away from Fort Lincoln had been indefinitely post poned but declined to comment as to the reason or to express an opinion as to whether the plans to abandon Fort Lincoln would be permanently halted. MARTIAL LAW IS DECLARED IN CIA Revolutionary Uprising Against Regime of Gerardo Machado Fails Havana, Aug. 10.—(A 5 ) —Martial law reigned throughout Cuba Mon day in the wake of a revolutionary uprising against the regime of Presi dent Gerardo Machado which cost three lives and threw the island into confusion. The president issued a proclamation saying military authority was su preme until countermanded and that all legal action was vested in the military cQHjrts. He also promised that rebels; other than leaders, who laid down their arms within 24 hours, would be nardoned. “It is intimated that rebels or se ditious disturbers who cease in their hostile attitude, delivering their arms or other implements of war and lend ing obedience to legitimate authority within 24 hours, of the publication of this proclamation,” he said, "will re main exempted from penalty, except the authors or chiefs of the rebellion and sedition and disorder and per sons repeating the crime.” The armed forces of the govern ment sought by land and sea the slen der precise figure of General Mario G. Menocal, Cuban president from 1913 to 1921 and alleged leader of the movement. Strict censorship prevented direct communication with the* interior, but there were rumors there had been fighting in Pinar Del Rio, Camaguey and Santa Clara Provinoes. In Pinar Del Rio Sunday 17 men, among them Menocal’s brothers, Fausto, Guatimon and Serafin, and Dr. Ricardo Dols, law dean of Ha vana university, were arrested by rural guards just before they entered Pinar Del Rio city, allegedly with arms and ammunition to their auto mobiles. They were brought to Ha vana and oonftoad to Cabana for tress. WHITES A® WANS GATHER AT n OF ' FAMOUS N.D. INDIAN Services at Cannonball Are Read Both in Indian and White Man's Tongues MAY BE BURIED IN CAPITAL Board of Administration Con- sidering Interment on State-Owned Ground Indian and white man, in whose councils he had stood as an influen tial figure for more than a half cen tury, were at Cannonball by the hun dreds Sunday to do final Red Tomahawk, reputed slayer of Sitting Bull, famous Indian medicine man. Funeral services were read 1 both in the language of his fathers and in the tongue of the people whose customs he had adopted. The body will be held at Cannon ball until Tuesday, pending outcome of a movement to bury Tomahawk on the state capitol grounds here. Burial will take place at Cannonball should plans to inter the body at the capitol fail to materialize. The state board of administration has been asked for permission to bury Red Tomahawk, on the capitol grounds. A decision from the board is expected by Tuesday. Captain I. P. Baker, Bismarck, close friend of the old Indian for nearly half a century, is in charge of arrangements for bringing the body here. His death, at the age of 82 removed one of the most colorful figures on the Standing Rock reservation where in 1890 he was among the Indian police who sought to arrest Sitting Bull. Red Tomahawk claimed to have fired the shot which killed the noted chief. Born In Montana Ta-can-rpl-luta, as Tomahawk was known to the Sioux, was bom in Mon tana territory in 1849 and as a youth developed a reputation as a fighter of Indians hostile to his tribe. He came with his'tribe to the reservation here and became a sergeant in the In dian police. To Frank Zahn, interpreter on the Standing Rock reservation. Red Tom ahawk recounted his version of the battle in which Sitting Bull was killed only a few years ago, after a silence of almost 40 years. The old Indian, for whom Zahn acted as Interpreter in his many deal ings with federal authorities, claimed that two shots were fired at Sitting Bull. Tomahawk entered Sitting Bull’s log house, ordered him to dress and to submit to arrest. Sitting Bull, unarmed, called to his followers to kill leaders of the Indian police. Lieutenant Bull Head, leader of the detachment, fired at the chief, wounding him in the chest. Toma hawk, firing simultaneously, struck Sitting Bull in the cheek, and claimed his bullet caused death. Tomahawk Took Charge Catch-the-Bear, one of Sitting Bull’s followers, shot Lieutenant Bull Head, and other officers in the police detail were subsequently killed, leav ing Tomahawk to take charge. Living his peaceful life in later years, Red Tomahawk’s word carried great weight on the reservation. He assumed the role of a recruiter during the World war and many young In dian braves went to war at his behest. Many notables .were adopted into the Sioux tribe at ceremonies over which he presided. In 1924, Marshal Foch of France smoked the pipe of peace with the Indian leader and was given a war bonnet, the symbol of adoption in the tribe. Others adopted were Queen Marie in 1927, Secretary of War Hurley in 1930, the late Brigadier General Charles E. Hyatt, in 1924 and General C. P. Summerall. Red Tomahawk presented to Presi dent Hoover and Vice President Curtis a tobacco pouch and pipe, and in 1928 on a visit to Washington he and In terpreter Zahn dined with the presi dent and vice president. Back in 1878, Red Tomahawk was presented to President Grant and in 1902 to Presi dent Roosevelt. The Indian’s profile is borne on state highway markers throughout North Dakota.

MENOCAL Mario G. Menocal, former president of Cuba, is accused of leading the re- A PARTIAL VICTORY Announcement that orders to prepare to abandon Fort Lincoln have been countermanded, made Saturday, constitutes a partial vic tory for the forces which have been fighting to keep North Dakota's only military post occupied. But it is only a partial victory. Until the proposal to evacuate the fort is abandoned entirely the fight must be continued. In this war, as in all wars, the battle which must be won If success is lo crown North Dakota’s banner is the last battle. The reasons which dictated cancellation of the “prepare to aban don” order are still obscure and probably never will be known. But the weapons which North Dakota has available to it In Its effort to obtain revision of the entire scheme are in plain sight. They fall into two classifications. The first is that of military policy, since the needs and interests of the nation are paramount to those of a single state. But considered on the basis of sound national defense, there me few who will deny that an interested citizenry Is the greatest single asset of the United States la time of national peril. Fort Lincoln, located in the center of the state and offering welcome each year to hundreds of boys attending the citizens’ mili tary training camp, is the leaven which keeps working in the entire population throughout the year. It brings home to the people that there Is a national-defense problem and that, in time of war, the government will expect every able-bodied man to do his duty. It keeps constantly before the citizenry the thought that war always Is a possibility and thus, through the memory of ether wars, strengthens the desire for peace. There may or may not be technical military reasons for concentrating troops In certain areas, as the war department proposes, but whatever they may be, they are over balanced by the fact that the attitude and spirit of the people are the most Important factors in any national crisis. The war department may have recognized this fact and issued Its order on that basis. But It is more probable that the department was advised by persons high In authority that no good end could be served by being hasty or arbitrary in the matter and that the result might be dis astrous, both to the war deportment and the political party which has supervision over it. This leads directly to the second classification of available wea pons. The people of North Dakota have arrived at the point where they are disposed to judge political groups on their records, rather than on the sweet-sounding things they may say. The record for the administration would be materially smirched in North Dakota if It permitted abandonment of Fort Lincoln, a direct slap at the whole state, to be carried out It should not be forgotten that North Dakota, usually rock-ribbed Republican, helped to elect Wilson in 1916. Another factor is the possibility of violent opposition in congress when the war department’s appropriation bill comes np again. Such x flagrant breach of faith as would be involved in the evacuation of Fort Lincoln and such a woeful waste of public funds as would be demonstrated thereby, might well bring the entire record and activities of the department under rfwt scrutiny. Those sre things which could happen and which probably will happen unless the order to "cease preparations’* is permanent. Bismarck and North Dakota have won a partial victory. Nothing should be left undone to cement this gain and the victory final.
