Jf34 Union Organizer Kidnaped by Mob Tennesseans Angered by NBA Closing of Karriman Hosiery Mill HARttEMAN, Tenn.-(£>)-Fred Held, Vice ptesident of the American Fed- ersUon of Hosiery Workers, Wednesday was kidnaped by a band of armed tten and later released after threats ot death and a warning not to return to this state. Meld was picked up, shortly after his release, by searching officers and arrived at Chattanooga several hours later aboard a train to tell a story of 4 wild ride during which a mill worker constantly at his side flourished a gun and remarked that it was "too bad Hugh Johnson isn't here to get a "'dose of this too." Held, taken from a train at Harri- jnan by force, said the mob blarrer the union for developments that be 11 Are Killed in Dynamite Tragedy Powder Company Plant Blows Up Near Olympia, Wash. OLYMPIA, Wash. — (ff)~ A terrific blast which wrecked the Denn powder plant eight miles northeast of here Wednesday took at least 11 lives, including those of a woman and an 12- year-old boy. Five were injured seriously and were brought to hospitals here when eight tons of newly mixed dynamite exploded. Two explosions occured in tho mixing room cf the plant, the first setting off the dynamite mixed and ready for moulding into sticks. Wreckage was spread over a large area and started several brush fires in the vicinity. Clouds of smoke and debris were shot several hundred feet into the air. Tacoma, 22 miles away, was rocked by the blast and startled citizens flooded telephone switchboards with calls.

After taking Held from the train the mob forced him into one of the six automobiles and started toward Scott county. Held said he. was told he was being "taken for a ride" and that at least one person who tried to interfere with the abductors was "knocked down," After going some distance the group Stopped for a conference and finally told Held he could go if he would promise never to return. The union Official said he believed his life was in danger arid there was nothing else to do. Previously he said he had tried to talk to the men but after asking them if they believed in the NRA and receiving no reply "We don't want a damned thing to do with it," he had told them there was no use for him to discuss matters with them further. Finally released with a curt "beat it," Held said he started on the road and later was met by officers who offered to take him back to Harriman. Held said he decided he had taken enough punishment for one day and went on to Chattanooga. The plant is owned by J. A. Denn, whose headquarters office is in Portland, Ore., No cause for the blast could be advanced until preliminary investigation. Smart Ford V-8 Models Reduced In Price Pord V-8 Dealers have just announced now low prices on popular Ford V-8 models. The three most popular models affected arc the Tudor Sedan, Coupe and Fordor Sedan pictured above. Ford dealers point out that the Ford Motor Company did not increase the price of the Ford V-8 car in the spring at the time price increases were announced by other major motor car manufacturers. Mr. Henry Ford made a statement to the press \t the time price increases were made saying that he would not increase the price of his cars because he did not think that conditioio justified an increase in price. The present price reduction is the second time Ford dealers have reduced prices this year. The first price reduction was made possible by a sav- ins in freiRht rates which was passed on to the public. The second price rcduct'on was made possible by the Ford Motor Company. It follows n reduction in the f.O.K. prices of popular Ford V-8 models. 7-Game Winning Streak Is Broken Transporters Knock Hope Out of League Lead by 3 to 2 A seven-game winning strcnk that carried the Storks from third plnce to ( hurlcr. top position of the Two States League, was broken here Thursday when the locals dropped a 3 to 2 decision to the Southwestern Transporters. The loss reduced the Storks percentage figures to within n point or so above the Atlanta club, second place contenders. Although wild at times, Zinn allowed the visitors only six hits. The plate. . The Storks go to Atlanta Friday for n crucial battle with the Rabbits. Both teams arc battling for supremecy of the league. A decision at Atlanta may settle the first half championship race. Manager Lloyd Coop announced that Grice would start against the flab- hits, with Blnckle Elliott, ace hight- hnndcr of the league, held In reserve. Atlanta will probably use Bernard Henderson, former American league Farm Forum to Be Held Here Storks got eight off Jack Harris. The locals failed to click smoothly Thursday, two or three bad plays being marked up against them. Cook hit safely in three trips to the National Grange Head in Arkansas Farm Fraternal Organization Greatest in U. S. A. Since 1867 LITTLE ROCK.—Louis J. Tabcr of Columbus, Ohio, national master of the Grange of Patrons of Husbandry, arrived in Little Rock Wednesday night to speak on "The Grange and Vocatioria! Education" at the luncheon meeting Thursday of the Arkansas conference of vocational agriculture teachers. Mr. Taber has been national master of the organization for 11 years, having served in this capacity longer than any of his predecessors.

Jung was arrested Tuesday at his apartment, where before accompanying secret agents, he requested to be allowed to go to the bathroom of his quarters and wrote "secret police" on the wall. Political circles believed that radicals of the Nazi party, stirred to action by the vice chancellor's statements of March 17, had seized one of his collaborators, not daring to touch von Papen. It was intimated at von Papen's office, however, that Jung had carried his tongue rather loosely and probably said something that offered secret police an excuse for nabbing him. Chancellor Hitler rebuked radical elements of the Nazi regime Wednesday by rejecting a demand for dissolution of the conservative Steel Helmet War Veterans organization. Moreover, he ordered the Storm Troopers to cease their attacks, 'by word or deed, on the Steel Helmeters, whose leader, Franz Stedte, is minister of labor. The action was considered an indication that Hitler has thrown his lot with the conservative wing of the Nazi movement. Further indication was seen in the fact that he conferred with Vice Chancellor von Papon. The decision was the frist Hitler was called upon to make since von Papen's speech and it was forced by the radi- | cal elements through a demand of the 1 supreme command of the StoTm | Troopers that the other organization be dissolved.

Home Demonstration Club Will Meet July 9 with Mrs. Elmore The Washington Home Demonstration club will meet at the home of Mrs. W. E. Elmore on the afternoon of July 9, in its next meeting. The demonstration will be on canning veg- IRAIN service that will cut present schedules nearly In half and link cities a thousand miles apart by overnight railroad travel la to be the next Important development of American railroads, according to Edward G. Budd, who built the stainless ateel, s t r e a m -1 Ined Zephyr for tho Burlington Railroad. That overnight service between such points as .New Edward G. Budd York and Chicago and New York and St. Louis is not only possible but an early probability was demonstrated by the dawn-to-dusk run of the Zephyr from Denver to Chicago, Mr. Budd said. That run of 1,017 miles was made In 13 hours, at an average speed of 78 miles an hour and a total cost of ?14.88 for fuel oil for the Diesel motors. The regular running time for a crack steam train Is approximately 26 hours and the coal consumed costs $255. An Accomplished Fact "The new light-weight, streamlined train Is an accomplished fact and has definitely taken Its place Jn the American railway system," Mr. Budd salrj. "Some experts foresee Ita use In transcontinental service. They point out that a train such as the Zephyr could cover tho approximately 3,200 miles between -New York and San Francisco in 48 or 50 hours, compared with the present running tlmo of four and a half days. That is entirely possible, and some day we shall see It. "But a more Immediate "use of the new typo of train, will, In my opinion, bo for overnight service between cities that are a thousand miles or so apari—between points that now require eighteen, twenty or more hours on tho fastest trains," Cites Saving In Time Mr, Budd pointed out that one of the new type trains could easily cover tho 908 miles between New York and Chicago In fourteen hours, compared with the present running lime of 20 hours. In other words, a passenger leaving New York at 7 P.M., eastern time, would arrive In Chicago the next morning at 8 o'clock central time. Service between Boston and Chicago would require only a few hours longer. Similar saving in time could be effected by overnight schedules between such points as New York and St. Louis, a distance of 1,051 miles, that now requires nearly 23 hours; Chicago and Denver, 1,034 miles; St. Louis and Denver, 1,024 miles; Cincinnati and New Orleans, 921 miles. From New York to Jacksonville, 891 miles, could easily be made overnight, while the vaca- tionist from Nsw York could arrive in Miami only a few hours later week in Blevins.

C., just after the Civil war, togive the farmer an equal chance with other branches of industry. The organization has developed but never changed since that time, Mr. Taber said. The Grange, which was never a political organization although it has had much experience in legislative activity now has chapters in 35 states in the Union and is rapidly spreading in the South with approximately a dozen subordinate granges in Arkansas. "The greatest achievement of the Grange for the American farmer," Mr Taber said, "has been to give him social, educational, economic and legislative force equal to other groups. It has done this through the power of organization and through co-operation with lawmaking bodies and kindred groups." The only requirement for membership is that one be interested in agriculture. It WuS the first fraternal or| ganization to give women absolute ) equality with men. At least 50 per ' cent of the names on its membership i rolls re those of women. j The greatest needs of the farmer i other tha neconomic, Mr .Taber believes are educational and social. 1 "The Grange is endeavoring to do everything for agriculture that will make the farm a home that is prosperous and contented," he said. "Agricultural conditions." he finds, "are much better than they were a year ago. The Grange is stronger at this time than since the 70's although it necer has hda chapters in less than 25 states in the Union," Mr. Taber I concluded.
