HOPE STAR, HOPE, 'Neutrality Patrol' Faces Stern Test as Arms Start Moving Overseas to Allies . NEA Service Staff Correspondent (Noted Military Writer) WASHINGTON — the "neutrality ; patrol" is bucking down in dead , earnest today to the unprecedented t»sk of preserving a safety zone, hundreds of miles wide, around American snores* Lifting of the arms embargo, reports of German plans to intensify submarine activity, and news that Allied warships will convoy the first boats to leave New York with armaments-* , these developments complicate a ticklish job which Governor London already has called "the greatest ever assumed by any nation in history." Some U. S. Navy men tend to agree With the President's late Republican rival—hundreds of miles out takes in an awful lot of water. And since our part of it is most traveled, we must do most of the patrolling. Ecudaor, Chile, the Aregntine. Uruguay and Brazil are supplying some vessels, but those countries have, all told, about three dozen planes capable of proper seagoing patrol. The United States has a substantial number of Navy medium bombers, and we also have taken out of mothballs 53 World War destroyers to augment the modern vessels of the Atlantic squadron. Coast Guard cutters and the carrier Lang- ky 'w Patrol Reports to President In all the sea-lanes that touch all our territories, the President wants to know what goes on. Where cruise the cruisers of Britain's and France's West Indian squadrons? Where lurk the German submarines? Are they being' refueled by oil-tankers— and of what nationality? Are they laying mines, establishing island bases? The President has announced strange submarines already arc in our waters! and his announcements, it is intimated here, are not unconnected with the neutrality patrol. The reports from the patrol go direct to him 'and he decides whether, when and how they shall be made 1 --•.*-** cu*u nu w Miejr anau ue macie ..._ ._. _ public.

To date, the neutrality patrol's job has been to stop, look, listen—and not to cross the tracks of international collision. If it spots belligerents, it has orders neither to interfere nor use force. Just the presence of an Argus-eyed policeman may be enough it is felt. Bepeal of the arms embargo will sec American sea-lanes thronged with Allied ships bearing American-made munitions, which submarines willl try to attack—and perhaps on this side of the Atlantic. Any day now the S-S-S-S!"—the radio flash which signals the sighting of a submarine- may call the U. S. Navy to a sinking ship. , The neutrality patrol is regarded even in official quarters here as an experiment—albeit an important one. Already Britain has declined to recognize this wide safety belt about our shores. If the experiment docss't work, then the Pan American nat- ipns will "consult together" again it is reported. • Distribution of seals, bearing the inscription, "Adolf Hitler, our peace leader," has been banned in Berlin.

S. S. R. Author of Lindbergh Liar" Attack The name of V. Molotov is affixed to every decree in the Soviet Union. First attention was called to him outside Russia when he denounced Col. Charles Lindbergh as a "paid liar" for alleged slurs against the efficiency of Russia's air-arm. Second time was when he shocked most of the world by signing, together with Herr von Rib- bentrop, the Soviet-German pact. Like many another of his compatriots, the premier is using a name of his own choosing. He was bom Viacheslav Scriabin. As a young revolutionist, in and out of exile three times, he adopted many aliases. He preferred Molotov, to Zvonov, Prostota, Riabin, and Mik- hailov, so he kept it.

King Little insists that his daughter may be wed only to the strains of "Faithful," the song of Lilhput. The argument gets so hot that Bombo calls off the wedding and declares war. Gulliver eventually effects an harmonious compromise by putting the two songs together into one called "Faithful Forever " Real Models Used by Artists There are eight musical numbers in the picture, and the voices of the prince and princess will be those of Lanny Ross and Jessica Dragonettc.

The Wildcats scored touchdowns seemingly at will, though the air and on carefully excuted ground plays. Bull Daugherty and Blacky Blackwell scored two touchdowns each, and Blackwcll also hurled three touchdown passes to his ends. Nashville scored its touchdown in the third quarter on a short pass from Underwood to Gosnell, who traveled 60 yards for the score. Underwood hurled the pass from his 21-yard line. The Cats opened up in the first period when Blackweli started firing touchdown passes, tossing to Smith, left end, and a few minutes later to Brown for a second score. Blackweli heaved another touchdown pass to Smalling, substitute end, in the third period. Going into the third quarter with the score 20 to 0, Nashville took the kick and returned to its own 21. It was from this point that Underwood, who was 90 per cent of the slight Nashville offense, pitched to Gosnell for a score. For the rest of the game the El Dorado backfield of Daugherty, Black- wcll, Reese, Cunningham and Batch- clor, alternated at running over the little Nashville line. Except for that brilliant pass in the third period, Nashville never had a chance.

CHAPTER III «JT'S murder, all right," Captain Dawson of the homicide squad agreed with the coroner's deputy •who knelt .beside Arnold Ben- thorne's body. "Shot through the forehead. Death instantaneous. Absence of powder burns eliminates suicide. His own gun .was in the .drawer, anyway." The deputy nodde.\ "Mr. Ben- thorne evidently was ex-peeling his visitor"—he glanced upward at the lamp shade, .still turned toward the door—"but there's one puzzling thing, Captain Dawson. Ben- thorne's body is almost under the the desk. The impact of the bullet should have knocked him backy ward, but he fell on his face.". "Someone might have turned him over," Dawson supplied. "I doubt that," the coroner continued. "Blood flowed directly from the wound to the carpet. There was no trickle across the face—and killers don't wipe off the faces of their victims. Ben- thorne was reaching for something when he was killed." "The gun?" "The revolver is in a drawer to the right. If, seated in his chair, Benthorne had jumped for the gun, his body would have fallen to the right. As it was, he fell to the left He must have been reaching for a left-hand drawer, and was completely off balance—" "There's nothing but a checkbook, a diary, a box of cigars, and a few letters in that left drawer. The others are empty," Dawson interrupted. "You've got all the pictures and everything you want now?" he went on. The deputy nodded. "Then take the body to the city morgue. Hold it there until you hear from mo. I don't want to talk to reporters until morning." Dawson turned to a detective, busy at the window. "Any fingerprints?" "Not a one, or footprints cither. That rain—" "But you do think someone came in that window?" "I'm sure, sir. The sill has a mark that might have been made, by a rubber sole. The person who came through the window knew what he was doing. He wore gloves, wiped the sill off after he had climbed out, and was careful to walk lightly. What tracks he did leave were washed out by the rain, and you can't track him on the sidewalk." "Could that mark have been made earlier—before tonight— planted there to make as think someone did go out that window?" Dawson shot at him. "That's possible, Captain, but 1 doubt if it would have been so heavy—" "The person who made it could have marked it heavily to be sure the rain didn't wash it off, couldn't he?" Dawson countered. The detective nodded. "Okay," Dawson went on. "Let me have a full report as soon as possible. And send up the pictures. And have Dan Flynn come in here tight away. He's with the prisoners in the front room. I'm giv- ^Jf^C^a^O^e^t^f^ Mouth open, Flynn stared at Benthorne's note. "I will be killed tonight," he began. ing them time to think up good stories!" "I'll send him, Captain." The detective closed the door, Dawson was alone in the study. He walked to the door, surveyed the scene. The light caught him full in the face. The open safe, the bookcase pulled out. Had Benthorne done that? Or had someone actually been in the room after Benthorne was shot? Benthorne's fall to the left of the desk might be explained if the killer had entered through the window. But surely, Dawson thought, Benlhorne would have heard the window opening. No man would have a window open wide in last night's rainstorm. The curtain would have been soaked. The shade was dry, although the curtains and the carpet beneath the window were wet. Dawson remembered seeing the shade drawn when he checked Flynn at 11:30. Absently, Dawson picked up the desk pen, began to draw "doodles" on the blotter. The pen was dry. He shook it, Ink flowed easily. He replaced the pen in its holder, recalling that he had picked it up from the desk. So Benthorne had been writing. What? * * * "VOU wanted me, Captain?" x Patrolman Dan Flynn asked from the doorway. "Yes, Flynn. I want to hoar your whole story over again. You can skip about those kids wanting to get married. Tell me what happened after you heard the shot." "It was just as I told you at first, sir," Flynn began. "I blows my whistle, when the taxicab pulled away, and went for my gun. But the cab turned the first corner. I stood there for a minute or so—not more than two—and then I hears a shot. "I runs to the front door, and almost ran into Krone's gun as he came racing around the house—" "You mean Krone left his post?" Dawson put in. "It was my fault, sir," Flynn explained. "f shouldn't have blown my whistle. We pounded on the front door and at last this butler —Jameson—comes down and lets us in. "We found Mrs. Benthorne rattling the doorknob and trying to open the door. It was locked, apparently from the inside, for there was no key in the outside lock. "Krone and 1 tried to force it, but there isn't much room to run across that hallway and that's a heavy door. Mrs. Benthorne stopped screaming long enough to tell us the door couldn't be locked, that the lock was broken, and Jameson said the same thing. Jameson rushed down, got a screwdriver and we look the door off the hinges. I squeezed through and found this h c a v y chair propped against the doorknob. "Looks like Benthorne hud the door well blocked, or the murderer put the chair there after he shot Benthorne—" Dawson ignored the observation. "How long did it take you to get through the door?" "Not more than 10 minules, at the most, Captain. "Oh, yes," Flynn went on. "While we were working on the door this Mr. Alston, Mrs. Ben- thorne's father, comes down the front stairway. He said he'd gone up the back way to Mrs. Ben- thorne's sitting room—Krone met him at the back door, you know— heard the shot and hurried down the stairs. He don't get along very fast. He's got a bad heart. He was just telling mo about it." Dawson nodded. "Was everything in this room just as I found it? Window open, shade up, light shade tilted and all?" "Yes, sir. Well, one thing was moved. I—" "What was moved, Flynn?" Dawson almost shouted the words. "Well, sir, when Mrs. Benthorne saw her husband's body there on the floor, she rushed in and knelt beside it. She started to lift Ben- thorne's head, but I told her not to touch him. Then her father comes up, and starts to lift het- up and I moved the waste-basket around to the other side of the desk so he could get to her. I intended to put it back, and I must have forgot, sir." Dawson did not hear Flynn's explanation. He was on his knees beside the basket, smoothing out the papers, scanning them closely. One crumpled sheet held his attention. He read it swiftly, handed it to Flynn. "It's good you didn't decide to empty that wastebaskct, Flynn," he said. "Take a look at this."' Mouth open, Flynn stared at the paper.
