FRIGE 300 WHEN SWEEPS ATLANTIC The News Review •By BRUCE CATTON T HE national air races, whore the fastest planes ami the most daring fliers in the land are put through their pacc.s before a vast crowd of spectators, remind one, somehow, of the jubilance of a child playing with a fine new toy whose full use he has not quite discovered. That ,as a malcer of fact is what modern aviation is like. The air races Girl Reported Kidnaped Here; Cops Comb City Irma Carson, 12-Year-Old Negro Girl, Missing Since Late Friday WHITE MAN SUSPECT Drove Away With Stranger Who Hired Her to Be "Nurse Maid" Irma Carson, 12-year-old negro girl. was the objeqt of an all-night search here after she disappeared from her home late Friday with an unidentified white man. Police combed the city and surrounding territory Saturday, but up to noon the search had proved futile. The white man appeared at the ' negro's house late Friday, and unedr the pretext of employing her to "care for his two small children" drove off - with her in his Automobiles • - ...... • He told the girl's mother that he was moving here from EiDoraclo and "needed a nurse maid while he and his wife straightened Up the house." He Rave the address at South Elm street. When the negro girl failed to return home her mother appealed to police. She described the man as about 35 years old, fairly well dressed, but badly in need of a shave. She said the car was a gray coupe. A search throughout the city failed to reveal any trace of the girl or automobile. simply bring its chief characteristics into focus. These planes are masterpieces of skillful design and construction. The rhort, stubby racers, the graceful gliders, the sturdy broad-winged transport planes, the grimly beautiful ships of the military service—these arc artistic creations, in a very real sense, supremely fitted for what Uicy are supposed to do. XXX The men who fly them, likewise, arc artists, They have taken a brand new craft, made their own precedents, and developed their own skill. Insofar as an incalcuable clement like the air can be mastered, they have mas- trccle it. And yet. when all this is admitted, there remains the fact that we arc still a little bit foggy about the uses to which we shall put these fine planes and the men who fly them. We have an instrument which is nompleting the job of shrinking the world down to pocket size—a job that began when men discovered the principles of clipper ship conrtruction. continued with the steamship and the railroad train, went still farther with the telegraph and telephone, and came down to date with the automobile and Dr. Smith Is Speaker at Kiwanis Meeting Dr. C.

Luck of XXX But while ,wc have set up far-flung transport lines, and used the airplane tc bring remote spots in the Arctic and the tropics closer to civilization, we spend to much of our energy in developing the airplane as a war machine. An invention which brings all na- tionr closer together has served chiefly to make war far.more horrible than it ever was before. Instead of increasing our ncichborliness. it has increased our fears and suspiicons. It has made us accept the fact that in future wars we shall visit death on women and children, and not just on fighting men. All this, of courre, is in no sense the fault cf the men who build and fly the planes. It is the fault of humanity everywhere—humanity which solves the secret of flight and then uses its new knowledge to make the world a more dangerous place than which it was. XXX Mrs. Henry T. Hainey, widow of the late Speaker of the House of Hepivs- rnlatives, announces that, she will not be a candidate for re-election to .succeed her husband—thus reversing a tendency which has become mure and more noticable in recent, yearr. In a great many cases, congressmen who have; been removed from public life by death have been succeeded by their widows; and in some instances this has simply reflected a wave of sentimental sympathy on the part of the voters. Such elections do lillle service in the cause of good government. It. would he a bad thing if we came generally to accept the custom of putting widows in the line of succession. Mrs. Rainey docs us a service by refusing lo help establish that custom—although she herself, having served as her husband's secretary, and knowing his policies thoroughly, is better qual- placc Huey Long Finds Much Delight in Role of A Clown Politically Speaking the King-fish of Louisiana Has "It" IS MASTER SHOWMAN Lives in "Silk Stocking" Part of New Orleans and Sports Many Autos This is the second of three revealing stories on Ifuejf Long and the crisis ihaf: confronts him in- the Louisiana primary on the llth of September.

Threats Martial , Law in Carolina Governor Takes Hand in Section Where Seven . Were Killed CHARLOTTE, N. C.-(/P)-The threat of martial law hovered over strike- torn Piedmont North Carolina as fresh troops were rushed into the area already clotted with the pitched camps of 25 military units. A proclamation was issued at the ' office of Governor Ira C. Blackwood in Columbia, commanding "all per- sons engaged in or taking part in any „ unlawful obstruction, combination or assembling" to retire to their homes before noon Saturday. This edict was regarded as an ultimatum to the strike sector on whose battlefronts 1 in South Carolina seven •lien have been killed since the general strike went into effect, 'as the Sjovrnor for the past 24 hours has oeen "seriously considering" declaring nartial law in the state. The chief executive explained his >roclamation was issued in conform- ty with a state statute requiring for- nal notice before issuing a declaration o fmartial law o rstate of insurrection. Governor Blackwood explained the chief difference between a state of insurrection and martial law was technical. Under a state of insurrection, he said, civil authorities arc still in charge; but troops are at their dis- potal, habeas corpus is suspended and authorities arc empowered to commandeer any resources necessary to their work, as under nuirtiul law.
