Shoots Girl,
Suicides, On

Leßoy Kitchin, 28,
Dies After Firing on
Employer And Girl
Richmond, Va.. Nov. I.—(AP)—Miss
Ruth Slauson, 19. was shot through
the head and Leßoy Kitchin, 2&, died
as the result of bullet wounds inflict
ed shortly afternoon today at Main
an* l Eleventh streets in the heart of
Richmond's business district.
Clarence PhoeDus, employer of both
Miss Slauson and Kitchin, was walk
ing with her at the time, and told re
porters later that Kitchin approached
them and fired four shots, the first
in the direction of Phoebus, the sec
ond. which wounded the girl, and the
temaining anes into his own head.
Miss Slauson. who was conscious while
undergoing first aid treatment, con
firmed this account, and said she had
no idea why Kitchin shot her.
Kitchin died shortly after being
taken to a hospital.
The noonday crowd which passed
along the street adjacent to the Rich
mond post office, where the shoot
ing 'occurred, was thrown into wild
confusion by the tragedy and milled
around, blocking traffic during the
brief period before the dying man and
wounded girl had been removed.

Raleigh, Nov. 1. —TL* State Elemen
tary Textbook Commission, which
held a aecret meeting In Greensboro
a week ago, has declined to make pub
lic what action it is going to recom
mend with regard to the adoption of
new geography texts, evidently de
ciding It is better not to make any
report until after the general election
on November 8. All efforts to even !
get an intimation of what the com
mission did have failed until today,
when it was learned from sources close
to the commission that it will pro
bably recommend the adoption of a
new geography series when it makes
ts report to Dr. A. T. Allen. State
superintendent of public instruction,
and the State Board of Education,
after the election.
It is also understood that while some
as the members of the commission
opposed any recommendation for a
lew book adoption at this time, that
hey were outvoted by the women
members of the commission, all of
vhom are school teachers.
There Is little doubt here that the
commission has purposely decided to
postpone its action until after the
slectio nto prevent this action being
used in the campaign. Even the an
nouncement that the meeting was to
be held brought forth a vigorous pro
test from‘Algernon L Butler, of Clin
ton, the TteputUiqan candidate for
Vtate superintendent of public instruc
ion. who maintained that any move
toward another textbook adoption
low would only be another move to
"take care" of the textbook publish
Ing companies and help them filch at
least 2300,000 more out of the pockets
of parents the first year the new book
adoption went into effect.
A book adoption at this time is not
a direct issue in the campaign, of
course. The talk about it has already
proved irritating and it is no secret
'hat the Democratic political leaders
wish the matter had not been brought
up at this stage in the campaign and
would like to have it all "shushed"
antil after the election.
Some opinion neie la that the text
