Leibowitz of New York, chief defense attorney asked: "Were you attacked aboard the freight train that afternoon. The girl—missing since February 27 —appeared just as the defense prepared to rest its case in behalf of Heywood Patterson, 19. Chntlanooga negro, first defendant to face trial here. She said she had been in New York where she met Dr. Hurry Emerson Fosdick, pastor of the Riverside Baptist church. She told the minister her story, she said, nnd he sent her to Birmingham to see Dr. Charles Clingman, rector of the Episcopal Church of the Advent. And then she came here and told from the stand a dramatic story of her adventures. Ruby testified against the negroes in their first trial at Scottsboro. She said then she was assaulted. "I told it because I was excited," she said today. Mrs. Victoria Price, who says she was with Ruby and was attacked as they liobocd on a fricghl train, was in the courtroom when the girl entered. She has testified against Patterson. The women glared at each other and Mrs. Price's face reddened. Lester Carter of Knoxville, Tenn.. who was on the sliind during the morning, was brought in and the girl identified him. Carter in a three-hour recital had told of a clandestine meeting with the Bates girl at which Mrs. Price and Jack Tillery were present and of intimacies with her. ••• Reviewing her movements from March 23, 1031, until she was taken from a Southtrn railway freight train at Paint Rock, Ala., two days later, and with Mrs. Price accused the I negroes of attacking her. Miss Bates admitted intimacies testified to by Carter. She said she spent the night with Carter. Jack Tillery and Mrs. Price in a box car when the "hobo'' trip was planned. On March 24, 1931, she said, she, Mrs. Price nnd Carter caught a freight train to Chattanooga, and then; they met Orvillc Gilley (Carolina Slim) and spent the night in a "hobo swamp." 1 Unable- to find work, she said the quartet boarded a freight train the next day to return to Huntsvillc and rode a box car to Stevenson." "Me. Victoria, Lester and Gilley boarded a box car which we rode to Stevenson, and there \vc got in a gondola," she said. The fight between the negroes and seven white boys occurred in the next car, she testified. When taken from the train at Paint Reck she said she was excited, "She (Victoria) told me if I. didn't say it (that she had been attacked) they would put us in jail," the girl testified when asked by Leibowitz ifj any one told her what to say. The girl said she came here from New York, leaving there Monday and going to Birmingham. "No. might ring. Lucy Isn't nere to-jthe department and the salary night." {would'g'b, up $5.

She didn't come here in any coat, but she told you she went to Chattanooga to look for work. "Sh,e could have rouged her lips and cheeks and stood on the streets of Huntsville without going put to seek honest toil." "We don't say she is what she should have been. She has erred, but our laws say no man shall lay hands on a woman against her will." BV BRUCE CATTON It is just a little bit hard to see why reviewers have beeri waxing so indignant over Tiffany Thayer's now book, "An American Girl.' To be sure, ."An American Girl" is wilfully smutty, and its taste isn't improved much by the leer with which it is presented; but after all, as somebody goes to a burlesque show expecting to see a Sunday School performance, and by the same token nobody would buy a book by Mr. Thayer in the belief that he was going to get something along the line of Elsie pins- more. Mr. Thayer's public, that is, knpws what to expect from him at this time. And it must be said that he doesn't disappoint anyone. 'An American Girl" deals, jn a hazy t-ort of way, with n Hollywood cutic and her adventures. My chief objection to it is not that it is off-color but that it is just plain dizzy. In the beginning, Mr. Thayer seems to feel ki.e exposing the various imbecilities of movieland, and he does it very acceptably. Then he rings in an involved Graustarkian romance, wavering uncertainly between md-- dramatic adventure and satire. He fol)ows that with a hilarious episode in which America's attitude toward visiting royalty is lampooned— and then, evidently in confusion, he heads tor the bedroom, where his characters and his readers can feel at home. And Lh<? whole business really isn't worth your while.

Slliji Summcrvlllc and Zasu Pitts In " JU^t IftAD TO GET MARRIED" XXX By The Associated Press Editor's Note: — This is a series of articles explaining acts of the 1933 general assemply. Act No. 72 The'creation of a Fa.ct Findifig tribunal through Act No. 72 was the 1933 legislature's attempt at Helping city councils fix the rates of public utilities'. . : The Tribunal was to' be cpmposediJ— • of a lawyer, an ejtpsr.t engineer, and an expert accountant; and it may em- sloy four engineers and four accountants .together with the necessary cler- 'cal employes ,to conduct investiga- ions into the valuation of utilities. The cost of the tribunal' is to be jorne-by the utilities through a tax of 12 per $1,000 of gross earnings of util- ties. Utilities are required to file with the Tribunal each year a sworn statement showing the amount of its outstand- ng bonds; all outstanding stock with dividend rales; all other outstanding ndebtedness; a list of all officers and directors, and with amount pf salary >aid them and the amount of stock hey own; the operating statement for he preceding calendar year; and all nter-company contracts affecting the icrviccs to be rendered the public. Full authority was given the Tri- )unal to subpoena witnesses, inspect records of utilities, and to conduct learings. The evidence adduced at such hear- ngs will be admissable as evidence in any state court. When the record has been made, the act 'prescribes ijt shall ".constitute the sole record' on which' the' council'' or the corporation cornmissipn (,of. which the tribunal "is a part) shall fix and prescribe the rates to be charged by the utility company, and the sole r/ec- ord on which any proceeding'in court to challenge the reasonableness or validity or such rates shall be determjn- ,ed, unless the parties by agreement stipulate what shall constitute the record." The act also recites that "all findings of fact made by the Tribunal aft- er'noiice to the utility company being investigated, and to the council of the City to the corjjpraU.ori .coninjiision interested in the investigation, and a full opportunity to be heard, shall be conclusive on all parties, in the absence of fraud, or o? error so gross'as to be tantamount to fraud." H is made mandatory on the Tribunal Ip'assist' city councils In any litigation affecting the reasonableness or validity of any rate biased on a find, ing of the Tribunal. .

Stealing horses' tails is a common crime in Temuco, Chile. Horsehair brings a high price there. By SISTER MARY NEA Service, Writer Perhaps one of the cheapest time and labor-saving conveniihices in the kitchen is a good sized pair of sharp shears. We all can't have electric choppers and mincers, but most of us can have a pair of strong sharp shears that will chop small amounts easily and well. Celery and peppers are quickly cut for salads. Slit each stalk o'f 'celery with several gashes then cut crosswise. The celery can be cut as fine or coarse as wanted. . There's no danger of making those unsightly scars on one's thumb when shears are used in place of a knife. So often when dicing meats and vegetables with a knife the pressure against the thumb of the left hand is great enough to slightly cut, the skin. Tins makes an excellent place for stains from fruits and vegetables to settle and fine black lines through the end of the thumb are the result. Handy for Steak, Bacon Lettuce is easily shredded, tops cut from beets, green onions trimmed and grape fruit prepared by means of the shears. - THISICURIOUS twice as fast "as" a Tcnife and 'with less danger of cutting the fingers. An easy way' to prepare fresh pineapple is>to slie it across with a large knife and then "peel" each slice wi'th the shears.' Eggplant can be prepared this way too. Candied fruits and marshmallows are easily prepared for desserts' when snipped with shears. Dip chears in water to prevent sticking while cutting. After using shears they should be washed and scalded and lightly |-uj>- bed with'any salad oil before putting away.- Keep them in a drawer away from the children, because they must have sharp 'points and' be sharp on the edges if they give the most satisfactory results. Use the shears to prepare the marshmallow's, nuts and fruit in the Springtime Dessert; Springtime Dessert- ; One-half 'pound marshmallows, 1 cup whipping cream, Vt cup candied cherries, '/4 cup candied pineapple, Vfe cup pecan hut meats, 4 tablespons 'powdered sugar, '/4 teaspoon vanilla; few grains salt. Cut fruit in small pieces Cut marshmallows in quarters. Whip cream until firm, add' sugar and vanilla and fold in prepared marshmallows, fruit and nuts. Turn into a mold and let stand on ice several hours to chill and become firm.
