A man giving his name as Sam

said he was 26 years old, was arrest

and confessed to W. F. Bailey, State

that he helped rob and kill a man
in Kansas City “four or five years

He did not give the name of his
partner in the crime, but said their
victim was named Driews. The latter
was said to have been lured into a
lonely suburb on the promise of a
farm job, and there was robbed and
killed, and the body buried in a shal
low grave dug by the two men. Sim
koyich said the robbery netted S7O
in cash, of which he got S3O as his
part and the other fellow got the re
mainder. The body was buried, he
said, between Port Leavenworth
prison camp and a nearby railroad.
While not satisfied the man is tell

he was convinced his prisoner is

Nazis Launch Drive Upon

Berlin, Aug. 21 (AIF) —Nazi propa

Developments in the troubled

Heading the developments was an

Milwaukee Strike; Clash in
Portland Fatal
(By the Associated Press)
Union labor is considering today a
proposal for a genera transportation
strike in Chicago, where a police exe
cutive has described the bus drivers’
walk-out as "about right to blow wide
open.”
Chicago surface line employees are?
to ask the executive board of the
Amalgamated Association of Street,
and Electric Railway Employees of
America, meeting in Detroit, for per
mission to declare a sympathy strike.
Elevated line unions made a similar
request yesterday.
Should the executive board approve,
20,000 transportation workers will take
a walk-out poll.
Tear gas bombs and riot sticks
were used to quell a, riot in Milwau
kee, where 250 FERA strikers sought
to rescue a comrade from police yes
terday. A woman in a gray dress
goaded the workers into action.
Police at Portland, Oregon, were told
to arrest 23 men for uestqioning as a
result of a clash between working
longshoremen and strikers, in which
one man was shot to death.

New York, Aug. 21. — Robert
Bruere, chairman of the Cotton Tex*
tile Industrial Relations Board, and
George A. Sloan, chairman of the
Cotton Textile Code Authority, met
today to discuss strike threats in the
textile indusry and ultimatums of
labor organization leaders.
The conference at the offices of thfc
Cotton Textile Institute was held be
hind closed doors. Neither Sloan nor
Bruere could be reached immediately
for comment concerning the meeting.
The conference apparently was due
to the ultimatum announced yesterday
by Francis J. Gorman, chairman of
the strike committee of the United
Textile Workers, that “the next move
is up to the industry or the adminis
tration.”
veiled threat against Catholic, and a
church drive was announced by Reich
bishop Ludwig Mueller, announced to
“cover every city and county fronrt
autumn to spring.”
Another indication of strife was
the hesitancy of the German Roman
Catholic hierarchy to establish the
status of a concordat between Vati
can City and the nation.
The death of the late President Paul
von Hindenburg, who had admonish
ed Dr. Mueller to “see to it that
Christ is preached,” apparently has
removed a curb on the Nazi church
experiments.
