Liquor Embargo
Shocks Britons
LONDON, Oct. 21. (UP)—The !
British distillers were shocked and j <
indignant at the United States
embargo on foreign liquors and '
wines. i
They already have negotiated s
for huge sales to American inter- 1
ests. it was pointed out, the sums j
involved totaling possibly in the i
neighborhood of 2,000.000'pounds i
sterling (about $9,180,000). J
Furthermore, the distilleries 1
here and in Scotland have been 1
running full blast in recent .
months, anticipating huge and <
continuous orders following the
repeal of prohibition in America, t
In 1932, three-fourths of the 1
Scottish distillers closed with as 1
high as 10 years' supplies on hand 1
which they were unable to sell, s
due to excessive taxation. 1
Distillery shares boomed re- ]
cently on the stock exchange, in
expectation of American business, s
and a slump was regarded as in- ■
evitable. It was feared the dis- '
tilleries would be forced to close :
again, throwing thousands out of '
work just as winter comes.
PARIS. 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.
Gaffney Scores
Over Blue Ridge
GAFFNEY, S. C.. Oct. 21.—[
After a poor start, the Gaffney |
High Indians snapped into form
and won their fourth consecutive
game of the season Thursday as
they took the Blue Ridge Acad
emy team into camp with a score
of 7 to 0.
Blue Ridge threatened to score
several times. Their most danger
ous approach was after Ed Clary
fumbled on Blue Ridge's 35-yard
line. Johnston recovered and ran
for 60 yards before he was down
ed by Ramsey and Harrill.
Blue Ridge made 11 first downs
and Gaffney 7. Blue Ridge's pen
alties totaled 35 yards and Gaff
ney's 5.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Oct. 21.
(UP).—Gov. Dave Sholtz and his
cabinet have tentatively approved
estimates for $2,600,000 worth of
improvements at state institu
tions, provided the necessary
funds can be obtained from the
public works administration.
The governor said he had hopes
9f obtaining an outright grant of
the federal money, as the state
constitution forbids pledging of
the state's credit. He and othei
state officials plan a series of con
ferences in Washington next week
with public works officials in ef
forts to find a way to get the
needed funds legally.
A total of $1,062,750 of the
proposed allotment would be spent
on the State hospital at Chatta
hoochee. constructing a new quar
ters for white women, a heating
and power plant, laundry, water
and sewage systems and tubercu
losis wards. Another $1,281,840
vould be spent on a Belle Glade
3,000-acre plantation for housing
900 convicts on a farm- designed
to furnish cane and vegetables
for all state institutions. The re
•t the sum would be di
vided befween industrial schools
and the state prison farm.
'Ag.' Department

WASHINGTON. Oct. 21. (UP).
Up at the agriculture department,
where people have been preoccu

to nothing when you confront
the mechanical hen that lays an

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.

The latest cf these celluloid

"it might have been you."
It is a melodrama with a for

Four Stages Of
Intoxication Told
W.C.T.U. 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,
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
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. ^

Four Who Plotted Death
for Insurance Will
Die in Chair
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
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.
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
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,
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.
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
'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.
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
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.
