Oct. 21.—(UP).—The American liquor embargo caused consternation among French wine interests and reports in official quarters said the foreign office - had cabled the French embassy in : Washington to lodge a strong pro-! test with the department of state against the decree. The protest, it was understood, would be on the basis that recon sideration of the French war debt to the United States would be im possible unless the American liquor market is open to French wines and liquors. » President Roosevelt's action was printed on the front pages of most morning newspapers, which com mented it was a severe blow to an important avenue of French eco nomic recovery.

Department Going In For Art Almost Every Line But Dancing Represented By HARRY FERGUSON United Pre»« Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Oct. 21. (UP). Up at the agriculture department, where people have been preoccu pied for years with barley, pigs and alfalfa, art has come into its own. and the resuit, comrades, is something to see. All the treasures cf the louvre, all the masterpieces that Leon ardo da Vinci left strewn in the palaces of renaissance Italy, fade to nothing when you confront the mechanical hen that lays an egg and the cast-iron cow that moos. Landscaping, sculpture, painting, architecture, literature —all the arts with the solitary exception of ballet dancing are practised by federal officials who, a year ago, were content to go their hum-drum way estimating the number of boll weevils (the j insect variety in the nation. Even the supremacy of Holly wood—temple of the high priests of American art—is threatened. For the agriculture department has gone into the motion picture business, and can produce either & silent or a talkie quicker than yrou can sav processing tax. The latest cf these celluloid jewels is a one-reel silent entitled "it might have been you." It is a melodrama with a for est fire playing the hero and a :arless cigarette smoker, the vil ian. The stark, simple plot fol ows the style of the great Rus sian masters. It depicts mans jnceasing struggle against the forces of nature. The villan irops a lighted cigarette and >resto Enter the hero—red hot. rhe moral of the film is "never itrav from an ashtrap." Then they have one called 'mosquitoes" which includes some inderwater shots that would end William Beebe right back o the bottom of the sea.

Tells Just What 3.2 Beer Will Do EVANSTON, 111., Oct. 21.— (UP).—When a man wants to fight but has trouble lighting a match, then he's in the fourth stage of drunkenness, according to a statement yesterday by the W.C.T.U. outlining four varieties of intoxication which the organ ization stated can be attained by drinking 3.2 beer. The four stages, as outlined, are: 1. At two parts of alcohol per 10,000 parts of blood—a touch of dizziness, fullness and throb bing at the back of the head; willingness to talk. 2. At three parts per 10,000 —a feeling that everything is all right; nothing to worry about; "sure. I'll loan you some money." 3. At four parts per 10,000— trembling anj clumsiness of hands and limbs; much loud talk and laughter; glib and flippant remarks. 4. At five parts per 10,000— the subject's inhibition of self restraint is practically cut off. He acts on impulse. He takes jnwarranted liberties and brags of his exploits. He brags of his ability to "lick" anyone—yet has iifficulty lighting a match. The W.C.T.U. stated that four oottles of 3.2 beer would bring some persons to the fourth stage of intoxication. Its data, it stated, ,vas based on exhaustive scientific tests. ^ MORE OF SOUTHERN PINE BEING MOVED NEW ORLEANS, La., Oct. 21.

ALLEN SMITH United Preis Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Oct. 21.—(UP). The fantastic case of .Michael Mai-1 loy, the man who unwittingly re- J fused to be murdered, approached its conclusion yesterday when a Bronx jury found four men guilty of killing the rum-soaked derelict in order to collect $1,788 in life insurance. The last chapter to the strange tale will be writen in the ] electric chair at Sing Sing. It all started about a year ago when Malloy, constantly in an al coholic stupor, was frequenting speakeasy operated by Anthov.y Marino in the Bronx. Malloy was a stationary engineer who appar ently never worked. Marino and his bartender, Joe Murphy, and Daniel Kreusberg, a fruit dealer, put their heads to gether and decided to make sonivi money on the homeless Malloy. They took out as much insurance as they could obtain on his life, then set about the task of killing him. At first they plied him with lafcge quantities of liquor, think ing Maloy would drink himself to death in short order. But Malloy seemed to thrive on alcohol. Then they began serving him wood al cohol, and Malloy fairly lapped it up. Furthermore, it seemed to do him good. He drank the poison through last December and Janu ary, with no deleterious effects. The plotters went to Frank Pasqua, a young and ambitious undertaker, and put their problem up to him. Pasqua suggested that Malloy be killed by an automo bile, and that the body be deliv ered over to his place of business. Accordingly, Harry Green, a cab driver, entered the plot. They got Malloy staggering drunk, took him out on-the street in the middle of the night, and stood him up in the middle of the pavement. Green gave himself a two-block start in his cab and bore down on the weaving victim. Malloy staggered aside just ap the cab came at him, and he was 'safe. So they took him to another cor ner, where Green succeeded in running over him. Just to make certain, Green backed up and ran his cab over his man again. Then thev left him. A few weeks later Malloy dumbfounded the conspirators as he walked into Marino's speak easy and said: "Lemme have a couple of shots of that good alky." The plotters, still undaunted, be gan serving Malloy sardines, con taining pieces of chooped tin. Mal loy ate them, smacked his lips and asked for more. They pickled oysters in wood alcohol and Mal loy ate them all, still standing his. ground. At this stage the game became so desperate that the men put Malloy's identification in another derelict's pocket and had him run Ex-Fiancee May Receive Legacy Louisiana Bequest Has Strange History NEW ORLEANS. La., Oct. 21. (UP).—A solution appeared like ly today in the long fight over a $50,000 legacy bequeathed by Oakley Harris, New Orleans gambler, to his fiancee, Miss Jesse McBride. Harris was shot by Sarah Kell away, in 1929. On his deathbed he made a will and bequeathed $50,000 to Miss McBride. When he died, relatives contested the will and nullified it, on the grounds that it was not witness ed. Thereupon, Mrs. Harris, mother of the slain man, made a will be queathing $50,000 to Miss Mc Bride, who in the meantime had married Sam Maceo of Galveston, Texas. When Mrs. Harris died, it was found that her estate had dwindled until there was not $50,000 left to pay Mrs. Maceo. Attorneys for Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Maceo then filed an inter vention in the Oakley Harris case, claiming that the mother was en titled by law. to one-fourth of the slain gambler's money, and she had never claimed it. Relatives who had broken the Oakley Harris will then filed a countersuit, declaring themselves forced heirs to Mrs. Harris. Civil Judge Provosty ruled that Mrs. Harris was entitled to one fourth of the Oakley Harris es tate, raising that estate to a sum which would enable the payment of the $50,000 to Mrs. Maceo. Judge Provosty also refused to recognize the claims of the orig inal Harris heirs, to a portion of the deceased mother's estate. The judge ruled that Mrs. Han-is died in Alabama, and Alabama law does not recognize forced heirs. Unless there is an appeal from Judge Provosty's decisison, it ap peared likely that Mrs. Maceo would get the $50,000. over. Returning to their original vic tim. they got Malloy drunk again, took him out on a freezing night, unbuttoned his shirt, poured wa ter all over him and left him through the night on a park bench. 'The next day Malloy walked into Marino's place and said: "Gimme a shot of that good liquor. Pm freezin'." He didn't even have a head cold. • At last he was taken to a furn ished room where Kriesberg and Joe Murp"hy killed him by forcing a gas tube in his mouth. "Dura ble" Malloy was buried in a chai' ity grave. Out of the insurance money, Harry Green, the taxi driver, only got $20. Pasqua, the undertaker, took a cut of $05, Kriesberg got , $50 and Joe the bartender re-J ceived $60. Marino. Kriesberg, Murphy and Pasqua were convicted of first* de gree murder. Harry Green, turn ing state's evidence, will be pros ecuted for felonious assault. Man datory death sentences will be passed by Judge Jas. M. Barrett. OOKS „ and SLIDES BY BILL BRRUCHER Big Winds of Kansas THHE Irish of Notre Datii*. cnn remember a new "night of the big wind," as of Oct. 7., 1933, when a big wind swept clear from Kansas University and stopped the Ramblers in their tracks. The South Benders may get an argument on the daie from Chili Wa'.sh's Irish at St. Louis Uni rersity. Walsh's men were waft ed from their feet on the night of of Oct. 6, 1933 by a windstorm generated in the football labora tory at Kansas State College of Agriculture and Applied Science. » • » Bad Days TT might be said the Notre Dame system, which aiso is taught by Walsh, had a couple of bad days with the breezes. One oi the elements of the Kansas State breeze is named "Ramming Ralph" Graham. Another is Oren Stoner. Ramming Ralph started the •oason in zephyrlike style, scor ing four touchdowns. In the game against St. Louis, Stoner ran 55 yards in the last Quarter, and Ramming Ralph carried It across from the one-foot line. It is Graham who, Is being hailed as the greatest fullback in the Missouri Valley region. Last year he led the nation in scoring part of the year, and was second at the close of the season. A football official who worked in one of the games telW me that he never has seen such a line cracfter. Not only that but he can pass, receive, acts as quarterback most of the time and relaxes the rest of the timo by place-kicking points. In one game last year, against Wichita, Ralph carried 25 of his school's 26 points across the line. Chill on Campus ORMAND BEACH was one ot the important defensive ele ments in the K. U. breeze that contused Notre Dame. xAnothfer was Old Joe Line, composed' of seven men who bumped the Irish I forward wall around roughly. It may take Hunk Anderson I some time to recover from the chill of that Kanaa* wind brought I to Notre Dame. REGAL COAL HOLDS FIRE ALL WINTER ..

Some comes from Sally, and you i know about her; some from an old school-teacher friend, who | wants no publicity (he might, lose his job); and then from Sani I mostly. Perhaps you'd better know more about Sam. He's a daisy. He don't care a continental rap for what most | people seem to hanker after. He doesn't 'seem to care for money, the way he spends it. He don't care for politics, the wav he does his own political thinking and can't be bossed. He doesn't gal livant after women, though he is a widower and rich. He won't touch liquor. He hates publicity, and that's why I merely call him Sam. He's a colonel, but never cares for the title. He could sport the finest cars in the coun try but none of his costs more than one grand. He's the equal in education o," any man in the world, but you'd *^ver know it by any showing olx. He"s fam ous among the great men of the world, but the county don't know it. Sam had a "career"' before lie settled down here to spend his old age. He started the great rubber plantations in Sumatra and the Malay peninusula; then studied mining engineering in London, was adviser to the Rand interests, invented the flotation methods of recovering gold and other metals, discovered copper in Chile, advised Goethals how to handle the slides in Panama, and suggested to the American oil men to explore Venezuela. He volunteered in the Belgian army in the war, and was decorated by King Albert, was badly wounded, was transferred to the American forces, and then went to Russia and helped the revolution there. I suppose I may sav Sam's outstanding quality is originality. You can never tell what he is go ing to say or do. They caught some bootleggers one day.
