UP) Along with the amazement that attended the performances of four English setter puppies from the same litter led by the champion of them all, Daro of Maridor, came the realization today that the Westminster Kennel Club show whieh ended Saturday probably cost European nreeciers a lot 01 money. In the past it was considered elementary that anyone who sought the top prize in America's biggest indoor canine exhibition, had to cross the ocean, usually to England, and spend a lot of time and money to lind a candidate. Then with a little luck and good showmanship he might win. An American bred dog had not been best in show since 1925. Only One Importation. But last night live American bred dogs and only one importation, the 1937 winner, Florneil Spicypiece of Halleston, paraded into the ring when the time came for John G. Bates to select the best dog out of 3,093 entries in the exhibition. The winner was Daro of Maridor, a handsome Orange Bclton setter and the kind of dog who would make almost any man say "let's go, boy," and start searching for n shotgun and his old hunting coat, Daro was one of nine puppies, whelped last May in the east Long Meadow (Mass.) kennels of Dwight W. Ellis. They were by the famous Ch. Sturdy Max and their dam was Ch. Lakeland Dawn. Three of them were destroyed and two sold. All four of the others were place winners in the English setter classes Friday, when they were shown for the lirst time. Dnro, performing smartly for his handler, Charlie Palmer, started in the American bred class and went through to be judged the best setter. , Maro of Maridor was named the first puppy dog and Mora and Dora were first and second among the puppy bitches. Has Tough Competition. Palmer, however, didn't want too much said about Daro for fear it might hurt his chances in the variety group. ' "Puppies usually don't go up," he commented. In the final judging, Daro faced stiff competition from Stanley J. Halle's little pure-white fox terrier, Florneil Spicypiece, which showed superbly. The other four American-breds hardly were in the competition. They were Pillcoc Rumpelstiltskln, the black French poodle owned by Mrs. Milton Er-langer of New York, which won the American Kennel Club grand champion award last year; Fox vom Teckelhof, a dnschund owned by Hugh O'Neill of Joplin, Mo., the lirst of the "sausage" breed ever to lead the hounds; John B. Royce's, Kai Lao of Dah Lyn, from Brookline, Mass., and the collie, Hertzville Headstone, from the Chicago kennels of C. J. Casselman and Thomas M. Hulpin, Boy Thrown Into Icy Water of Gravel Pit The warm breezes prevailing yesterday afternoon were but little comfort to Frank Gottfried, 14 years old, 1135 Division street, who took an unwilling plunge into the icy waters of a gravel pit at War-man avenue and Morris street late yesterday afternoon. Two youths who admired a new pair of shoes Gottfried was wearing, threw him to the ground and after removing the shoes tossed their owner into the water, police were told. Caretaker Dies After Being Gored by Bull Jeffersonville, Ind., Feb. 13.

HE THIRD concert in the Indianapolis Symphony orchestra's popular Sunday afternoon s-ries was by a capacity audienc" 1HU attended at the Murnt Theater yesterday. The reason for the steadily increasing success of the series was plain as day in the splendid performance of a beautifully varied nroeram under the direction of Fabien Sevitzky. It included Rossini's well-favored overture to "William Tell;" the third and last movements of Tschaikowsky's uncommonly festive Symphony No. 4; an introduction and allegro for harp and or chestra by the late Maurice Ravel with Marjorie Call, the orchestra's leading exponent of that time-hon ored instrument, as soloist; ex cerpts from Bizet's two "L'Arle- sienne" suites; an adagio for string orchestra by Frances McCollin, presented for the first time in the series, and the "Polovetzian Dances" from Borodin's "Prince Igor" with the Indianapolis Sym phonic choir singing the seldom-heard choral part. Choir Sing Well. The barbaric splendor of the "Polovetzian dances," with their exciting rhythmic beat, is stimulating enough when played by orchestra alone, or even by two pianos, as we heard this music a week ago yesterday. But the addition of the voices and such vital, well-trained voices produced an effect which was nothing less than triumphant and left the audience in a wildly enthusiastic condition. Elmer Steffen has worked won ders in organizing, balancing and blending the sections of his fine new choir. It sang with a richness and fullness of tone, a surprising dramatic sense that made much of the music's stunning colors, Mr. Sevitzky gathered his allied forces into a cohesive unit of such cli mactic power that the audience all but shouted its pleasure at the finish. The house linnlly was ouieted by the promise of an encore, in which the choir displayed its adapt ability to style in a fervently beautiful performance of a Bach cho rale. Miss Call Soloist. Misi Call, whose playing in a recital at the Odeon was greatly admired some weeks ago, again revealed the grace and charm of her unusual artistry as soloist in an attractive presentation of Ravel's delightful conversation piece. Later she shared honors with James Ilosmer, the orchestra's (irst flutist, in the exquisite duet of "L'Arlesienne." The program was further distinguished by the first performance of Miss McCollin's "Adagio," which proved to be mu sic of simple eloquence and dignity. It is a transcription of the slow movement of a string quartet dedicated to Mr. Sevitzky and the Philadelphia Chamber String Sim-foniettn, which gave its first per formance In 1927. Other numbers on the program had heen played neiore ny tne orchestra and it will suffice to say that they were well played on this occasion. Mr. Sevitzky is keeping his standard, both of program and performance, high for the "pop" concerts and therein undoubtedly lies the secret of their success. SEEIN' STARS By FEG MURRAY LISTENER WRITES PRAISE. Fraise from afar for the Indi anapolis Symphony orchestra has come to hand as a result of recent broadcasts of its Saturday night concerts on the Mntunl notwnfi. One listener of distinction believes that the Indiananolis Svmnhnnv compares favorablv with tho Phiin delphia Symphony." In a letter re- ceiven ny Mrs. Herbert M. Woollen from Cant. F. L. Parks of the chief of staff in Washington, v. c, Capt. Parks declares: "I was greatlv imnresseH wij h the excellence of the performance. as you Know, l love symphonies and though I am not a finished musician, I am sure I can tell a little bit about their performance. To my mind, the Indianapolis Symphony compares favorably with the r nuuuutpnia fympnony. I believe it was excentionallv well r1ifotoi I wish to commend the conductor tor waiting for his audience to get quiet. I think you had better speak-to the Groves Bromo-Quinine Com pany to nave an issue of cold cure before each concert. I never hnnrH so much coughing in mv life as during one pause in the music. But seriously, I think the symphony orchestra is to be commended. ' The performance was superb. A word of praise and one of friendly criticism. SPALDING NEXT SOLOIST.

(Copyright, 1.'1S, by the North American NeWBpaper Alllanre, Jnc. ) Hollywood, Cal., Feb. 13. Ex hibitor organizations throughout the country, led by their two most powerful units, the Motion Picture Theater Owners and the Allied Theater Owners of America, were reported handing together today for a vigorous renewal of a live-year-old battle to force lilm producers to take movie personalities off the air waves. The men who show pictures have heen insisting, without any visible sign of success, that It is suicidal for the film industry to ally itself with radio, and their new attack, while not centered on individual players whose radio success has made them Important screen personalities, Is directed at motion pic ture studios that have gone into the broadcasting business themselves. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and War ner Brothers, two of Hollywood's largest producing companies, which recently instituted radio depart ments to manage their own nation ally broadcast player programs, are particular objects of the showmen's attack. These two com panies, the exhibitors insist, are not only "biting the hand," but ac tually dismembering it. To Decide On Plan. It is expected that representa tives from all sectional groups will gather soon to decide upon a plan of action. Meanvvhilo, the two companies under tire are ' continuing their weekly broadcasts and executives declare they have no thought ot discontinuing the programs, which one otlicial describes as "a potent method of increasing box otlice returns for the exhibitor rather than working any disadvantage to him or the producer." Even as the exhibitor rumble grows to a menacing growl, another major company debates the advisability of tossing its hat into the broadcasting ring. Paramount is said to be flirting with an idea for arranging an hour of fireside entertainment to promote its own personalities and pictures. Paramount now has 17 contract players engaged in regular radio broadcasts. A survey today revealed approximately 50 motion picture personalities w hose names spell bis business at theater box offices are engaged in regular weekly broadcasts. Numerically, the Twentieth Century-Fox studio runs second to Paramount. It has nine contract players in radio work. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has six; Warner Brothers have seven and RKO live. Freelancing players who engage in network offerings bring the total to well over the 50 mark. Probably 100 or more featured players make "guest" appearances from time to time. Some Beyond Reach. Even if exhibitors could manage to devise a plan that would take the major companies directly out of the broadcasting field, their situation wouldn't be remedied. There would remain approximately 30 important movie stars whose contracts, with several years to run, carry clauses permitting them to make radio appearances. In fact many of these stars would not be in pictures today had it not been for radio. Such personalities as Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Rudy Vallee, Dorothy La mour. Fibber McGee and Molly and your old friend Charlie McCarthy all trace present fancy screen contracts to the popularity and drawing power established for them through radio. The two foremost networks grossed a total of $73,049,900 in 1937 and, after deducting expenses, there was an awful lot left to pay heavy salaries to top entertainers. Jack Benny knows that. So do Jeanette MacDonald, Nelson Eddy, Edgar Bergen, Don Ameche and others who probably wouldn't hesitate a moment at choosing between a job paying from $2,000 to $10,000 for an hour's broadcasting to one netting much less, and for six full days' work. From a seat in the Hollywood grandstand it would seem the exhibitor hasn't a chance of tossing movie stars off the air. The studios have joined hands with radio for better or for worse. And Jack Warner, who used to run a couple of theaters himself, thinks it's all for the better. Fists, Night Sticks End Bund Session Concluded From Tage One. Show Time, this country and finish naturaliza tion within nine years. Condomned by Post, Previously one post here had condemned the bund. Cart McMann, district command er, said the resolutions would be sent to the state executive committee at Indianapolis for review before being put before the state convention at Michigan City next August. Three members of the board ot control of the United German So cieties nt South Bend were dis closed vesterdav to have resigned by request because of their work in the bund. JUciwin n. bommerer, honorary president of the society, iiH the secrecv and suspected anti-Semitic tendencies of the bund had brought it into disrepute. BUND IN DISFAVOR HERE. Chaillaux Says No Attempts Made to Form Local Organization. Promoters of the German-American Bund apparently have made no effort to form organizations in Indianapolis, members of whose German colony are almost unanimously against the Bund's principles, Homer L. Chaillaux, national Americanism director of the American Legion, said last' night. "There never has been the slightest inkling of any attempt to establish the Bund in Indianapolis," Mr. Chaillaux said. Leaders of the city's German societies have said their membership is not in accord with the Nazi principles of the group. Commenting on the South Bend action, Mr. Chaillaux said: "It is in line with the national program in opposition to Nazi, Fascist and Communist activities in the United States." He said indications were that the Bund was active at Fort Wayne, South Bend and Gary and other Calumet district cities, where young Germans recently come to the United States predominate, but that the organization was in disfavor at Indianapolis, Evansville and other places where the German settlements are older. Women May Lose Vote By Roumanian Changes Bucharest, Feb. 13. UP Proposals to limit the right to vote and to tighten age requirements for legislators are being studied by a commission planning a new-Roumanian constittuion to replace the one suspended by King Carol, it was learned tonight. One of the measures would raise the voting age to 30 instead of 21 and it was suggested that women, previously permitted to vote for municipal candidates, be deprived of the vote entirely. The old constitution was suspended last week with establishment of the new government of Dr. Miron Cristea. patriarch of the Roumanian orthodox church.
