In granting the injunction against the shoe strike Justice Harry Manser declared: "The trouble is that the union came here and undertook to institute itself as a bargaining agercy before it was a duly constituted agent the union should have proceeded in the method provided in the Wagner Act and made certain that they had the required percentage of workers before they called the strike."

By the Associated Press.

FLORENCE. Italy, June 7. The Marquis de Cuevas and his wife, Margaret Strong de Cuevas, John D. Rockefeller's legatee, returned from France today and rejoined their two small children at Florence. The De Cuevases have a town apartment here.

The Marquis said he had heard nothing direct from either the Rockefeller family or their representatives concerning the will of the financier, filed at White Plains Saturday, which left nearly the entire residuary estate, estimated at $25 000,000, in trust to the Mar-quisa, who was Rockefeller's granddaughter. "Naturally," said the Marquis, "we hope it is true. It would be a help. But we were not expecting anything. Mr.

Rockefeller gave us a nice wedding present when we were married (in 1927). Since then we had understood that all his xuooey would be given to charity." MORGAN, BACK IN U. SAYS TAXES ARE 'NO PLEASURE' But Financier. Improved in Health, Adds They Are Legal, not Moral. the Associated Press.

NEW YORK, June 7. J. P. Morgan, recovered from an illness that kept him from the coronation of King George VI. returned from England today with the comment that "taxing is a legal question, pure and simple, and not a moral one." He referred to President Roosevelt's drive against tax evaders who.

among other things, incorporated their yachts as one method of escaping taxes. "Congress should know how to levy taxes, and if stupid mistakes are made it is up to Congress to rectify them and not for us taxpayers to do so." he said. "You do what you are compelled to do by law. It is no pleasure to pay taxes. You don't do any more than you have to.

It's just as bad to pay too much as too little." Morgan said he had recovered sufficiently to "walk down the gangplank," but added his physicians had forbidden him to walk up or down stairs. He was carried aboard the Queen Mary at Southampton. UNSETTLED AND LITTLE CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE THE TEMPERATURES.

Br tht Associated Press. NATAL, Brazil, Jure 7. Amelia Earhart headed over the South At-mtic in a light rain today for T)akar, Senegal, her goal on the African continent in her flight around the world. She left here at 12:16 a. m.

St. Louis time and radioed more than four hours later that "everything is fcoing fine." The plane made a perfect takeoff. With the aviatrix was her navigator, Capt. Fred Noonan. The monoplane had 850 gallons of gasoline and SO gallons of oil aboard.

MISS EARH ART'S STORY OF FLIGHT Ry AMELIA KARIf ART. (Copyright. 1937. New York Tribune, Inc.) NATAL, Brazil, June 7. Saturday night we had a hard sudden Un.

Yesterday morning, while the field was well drained, the hard trass was heavy with dew, and several cows at the edge of the field at Fortaleza seemed to enjoy the trass more than did the Electra. We hopped off from Fortaleza at 4:50 a. m. and arrived at Natal at :55. The weather was unsettled all the way.

It was interesting country and seemed much dryer. High dunes on the shore shone with bright sand. We passed near Fortaleza's stately church, supposed to be one of the oldest in Brazil. It could be seen plainly. Wo saw the airport at Natal almost before the town because it Is so large, consisting of long marked runways, large hangars and living quarters.

There are French, German and American planes here. The French have been crossing the South Atlantic on regular schedule for several years. The service is now run twice a week, carrying mail, but no passengers. I talked with the crew of the next plane cut and found the men preferred to fly early in the morning, ince they expect the most difficult weather during the first 800 miles. I believe I shall rely on their experience.

Everyone here is co-operating. The French have two ships stained in the South Atlantic, which ive weather conditions. They have agreed to share their information with me. Those who kindly helped to push the plane into the hangar when we landed were soaked by the rain for their pains. A showcr'fell just after came down.

The soil hrre, reminiscent of Georgia or Virginia, is red. The houses, which are built of it, add a vivid touch to the landscape. Green trees face a gray-green sea. At luncheon, I could hardly realize that I was in Brazil, for the was so like that at home corn on the cob nnd apple pie a la mode. Speaking of food, everyone took P'ty on us.

When we left Fortaleza had a present of a package of turkey sandwiches and cake. If this continues I certainly gain height. As I lor.k out. the window I can ee two children playing in the I a. Beyond, the surf beats against stranded wreck.

HARLOW. INTEREST RATE UP ON U.

S. NOTE ISSUE Half of $800,000,000 Borrowing to Carry 1 3-4 Per Cent. By the Associated Press. WASHINGTON, June 7. The Treasury increased the interest rate on its notes yesterday to the highest level in three years.

No official explanation of the new rates was available. Observers recalled, however, the break in the market for Government securities in March and early April, which forced the Federal Reserve Board to bolster the market with more than $100,000,000 worth of open mar ket purchases. Secretary Morgenthau announced the $300,000,000 of borrowing sched uled for June 15 would be accom plished through the sale of 000 worth of 1 per cent notes due Sept. 15, 1939, and $400,000,000 worth of per cent note due March 15, 1942. The per cent rate on the four- year and nine months notes com pared with a 14 per cent rate at which five-year notes were sold last December and was the highest since a 21s per cent issue of five-year notes was sold in June, 1934.

who fixed the rates after conferences with the Federal Reserve Board, was understood to believe that the rates were the cor rect levels in the present situation. About $300,000,000 of the proceeds of the new notes will be used to re tire maturing Treasury bills, and the remaining $500,000,000 which will be the net addition to the Federal debt will be used to replenish the Treasury's cash working balance. The cash balance has been drained of $800,000,000 since the first of the year to impound foreign gold flooding into this country. London Advances Price of Bar Gold to $34.72 an Ounce. By the Associated Press.

LONDON, June 7. The price of bar gold was pegged at $34.72 a fine ounce on the London market today in an effort to stem the flow of the metal to the United States. The new price was an advance of 9.8 cents to the ounce. Raising the price in London reduced by that much the profit to be made by selling gold an the United States. At today's price for the pound sterling shippers of the yellow metal stood to profit only 5 cents an ounce, compared with around 14 cents Saturday.

The narrowing of the margin between the London price and the Government-fixed price of $35 an ounce in New York made shipment less profitable and tended to discourage selling on the London market. $60,000,000 TAX ANTICIPATION NOTE ISSUE IN PENNSYLVANIA Series Authorized by Legislature to Meet Expenses of New Biennium. HARRISBURG, June 7. Pennsylvania will issue a 000 series of tax anticipation notes, payable May 31, 1938, to meet expenses as a new biennium opens. The notes were authorized by the Legislature, which approved tax anticipation borrowing for 1937-38 up to $175,000,000.

The series will bear II2 per cent interest, the same rate as two series totaling $95,000,000 which were paid off May 31. Interest payments on the new series will be made Dec 1 and next May 31. Bids will be received in the of fice of Gov. Earle until noon June 15. EXECUTIVE BOARD RECOMMENDS STEP Amendment Proposed to Open Membership to Business Office and Circulation Employes.

Newspaper men from most, of the principal cities of the country met at Hotel Statler today in the annual convention of the American Newspaper Guild, trade labor organization of editorial department workers, which was organized four years ago and now has about 10,000 members. Delegates to the convention, num bering 110, received at the opening session the report of the Guild's international executive board recommending that it affiliate with the John L. Lewis Committee for Industrial Organization. Heywood Broun, columnist, who has been president of the Guild since its inception, said he would ask that consideration of this, and other proposals of the executive board, be deferred until tomorrow's session. CIO Organizer Speaks.

Most of today's meetings were to be devoted to preliminary details and appointment of committees which will function for the convention. Sessions will be held each day until Friday, when officers will be elected and the convention will conclude with a meeting of the newly elected executive board. Welcoming the delegates at the opening meeting this morning were: Thomas B. Sherman, president of the Louis Newspaper Guild, and William Sentner, organizer for the CIO United Electrical and Radio Workers of America and leader of recent strikes at the Emerson and Century electric plants here. Joseph P.

Clark, president of the Central Trades and Labor Union, who had been named as a greeter, failed to show up. No explanation was offered for the absence of Clark, an A. F. of L. man.

Sentner said the guild was to be congratulated on its refusal to participate in the recent American Federation of Labor Council at Cincinnati. The guild had taken "a frank and honest stand to combat the labor-splitting tactics of the A. F. of he declared. At the request of Broun the delegates stood in silence for a minute in respect for the seven steel workers killed in the recent Chicago strike riot.

A resolution, introduced by Morris Watson, former Associated Press employe and central figure in the Supreme Court decision on the Wagner Labor Relations Act, protesting the "mu der'' of the seven steel workers and calling for the indictment of "police and others responsible" was adopted unanimously. Report Attacks A. F. of L. The Guild's support of the CIO movement, although it has not been formally affiliated with that group, is indicated in the executive board's report which holds that the A.

F. of L. is becoming an obstructor in the labor movement, "even a tool of employers." "Freed at last from the apathy and defeatism of the leadership of the American Federation of Labor," the report states, "wage earners in all walks of life are organizing, organizing, organizing. Strikes hfie been waged, and victories won. With a vast prospect still ahead, organization of workers is taking place at a pace never before approached.

"Until very recently there have been progressive trade unionists who thought, or, at least, who had not abandoned hope, that unity might be established on the basis of progressive principles, upon acceptances by the American Federation of Labor of the principle of industrial organization, at least in the mass industries. But as the policies and successes of the CIO have made more evident the fact that CIO, rather than the A. F. of is the medium by which American workers of today choose to advance, the A. of itself, through its top leadership, has cut itself off more and more from those workers, and has presumed to speak in their behalf, while actually playing the game of the employers." For Extending Membership.

FAILS TO RALLY IN OXYGEN TENT First 'Platinum Blonde She Rose to Stardom Overnight Husband, Paul Bern, Killed Self. By th Associated Press. LOS ANGELES, June 7. Jean Harlow, movie actress, died at 11:37 a.

m. today at the Good Samaritan Hospital. She was 26 years old. At the bedside were her mother, Mrs. Jean Bello, and William Powell, movie actor, who had been the actress' companion regularly at parties in recent months.

Miss Harlow was the first of th-3 "platinum blondes." Two years ago, however, she suddenly let her hair change back to a light brown. Earlier today. Dr. E. C.

Fish-baugh, her physician, had said a cerebral oedema followed acute uremic poisoning and that she was unconscious. He said the Los Angeles Fire Department was using an inhalator to restore her flagging respiration. "There does not appear to be much chance to save her life," he added. "Every known method of eliminating the poison is being used," Dr. Fishbaugh said.

"Dr. L. S. Chapman and I have worked incessantly for hours. She has had two blood transfusions and intravenous solutions have been administered, but her pulse is growing weaker hourly.

"She has been placed in an oxygen tent, but has shown no sign of rallying." She never regained consciousness. Dr. Fishbaugh said the complication of cerebral oedema was a swelling of the brain. Taken 111 May 29. Miss Harlow was taken ill May 29.

She had been working on a picture with Clark Gable. Her illness generally became known June 3 when her mother, Mrs. Bello, said she was suffering from inflammation of the gall bladder. At that time an attending1 physician said she had a cold. The actress was not taken to a hospital at first, Mrs.

Bello said, because it was considered too wearing on her to be moved. Two nurses have been in attendance constantly. "Jean's illness was sudden," Mrs. Bello said. "Saturday morning (May 29) before going to the studio she complained of feeling miserable and in pain, but she insisted on working.

When she told me later in the day, over the telephone, that she felt no better, I went to the studio and brought her home." It was her third illness this year. Returning from a personal appearance tour in the East, she suffered an attack of influenza last Febru ary. Early in April, she was in the hospital after having wisdom teeth extracted. Jean Harlow's Career; Rose to Stardom in "Hell's Angels." Jean Harlow introduced the "platinum blonde" to America. Other things also marked her career star roles and two divorces but it is probably for the shade of her hair that she will be remembered longest.

Harlean Carpentier, born in Kansas City, on March 3, 1911, was the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Frank Carpentier and the granddaughter of S. D. Harlow, wealthy real estate man.

The family, when she was 10 years old, moved to Hollywood, where her father continued his practice in dentistry. She went to school there and later to Barstow School at Kansas City and Ferry Hall, girls' school, in Chicago's North Shore suburb of Lake Forest. She returned to Hollywood in 1927 and obtained parts in several Hal Roach comedies. Her grandfather happened to see one of them in Kansas City. When he recognized his granddaughter, he raged all the way to a telegraph office.

His wire threatened to disinherit her. and brought her and her mother back to Kansas City. First Married at 16. By this time Miss Harlow was started on her marital as well as her movie career. At the age of 16 she had married Charles F.

McGrew II, wealthy Chicago broker, whom she met while at Ferry Hall. That was on Sept. 21, 1927, and although they were not divorced until Jan. 30, 1931, they had separated before she returned to Hollywood in January of Continued on Page 3, Column 6. ARMIES FIGHTING FOR ROAD JUNCTION Both Sides Claim Victory at Lemona Rebels Report Killing 6000 Government Soldiers in the Last Few Days.

By the Associated Presa. HENDAYE, French Spanish Frontier, June 7. A fleet of 63 insurgent planes bombed the suburb of Lezama, two miles from Bilbao, today. The attack was tne chief development of a general resumption of activity on the Basque front. No estimate of the damage was given ia dispatches reaching here.

Communiques of both sides reported their forces were in a struggle for the strategic highway junction at Lemona, seven miles from Bilbao. The insurgents declared. "The hill is entirely in our hands." while the Government asserted, "The enemy tried to attack our positions on the hill but was easily repulsed." Report of Heavy Losses. Six thousand Government soldiers have been killed in the last few days, the insurgent communique declared, as operations were resumed after Gen. Fidel Davila took over the command of Gen.

Emilio Mola, who was killed when his plane crashed into a mountain. The insurgenfattack'Had a double objective of controlling the commanding peaks near the valuable Lemona coal mines and the communications center at Galdacano, two miles beyond. The insurgents pressed against Galdacano from Larrabezua in the Lezama sector to the northeast Government officers considered that Gen. Mola's death had lessened the efficiency of the insurgent drive. They declared the attack on the peaks of Lemona lacked the appearance of a well-planned operation.

Archduke Otto Sees Battle. The fighting at Lemona was watched by Archduke Otto of Hapsburg, claimant of the non-existent Austrian throne. He stood on a hilltop and watched insurgent guns and planes attack the Basque lines. Only a few miles away, at Le-quieto, Otto spent a year of his exiled boyhood in a castle which ex-King Alfonso of Spain placed at the disposal of the homeless Em press Zita and her family. Otto's father, the Emperor Karl, died in exile in 1922.

Otto's tour was said to have no political significance. It was said that he had reached Spain four days ago to visit his uncle. 32-year- old Prince Gaetan of Bourbon-Par ma, who was wounded recently while fighting in the insurgent ranks. Otto was accompanied on his tour of the front by another uncle, Prince Xavier of Bourbon- Parma, who, as well as Gae. as the wounded Prince was known to his comrades, is a brother of Zita.

By the Associated Press. MOSCOW, June 7. Four Russians and a dog settled down today for a year's stay on an ice floe at the top of the world for a series of weather observations preliminary to the establishment of an air route from Moscow to San Francisco. Their comrades, having set up the camp for them May 21, took off in airplanes at 3:30 a. m.

yesterday. Three of the four planes reached the Soviet expedition's base at Ru dolf Island, 560 miles away, on schedule, 5Vi hours later. The fourth was down near the eighty- fifth parallel, about 350 miles from the pole. The stranded plane had given part of its gasoline supply to the other three so they might finish the flight-After reaching Rudolf Island, Dr. Otto J.

Schmidt, director of the expedition, wirelessed Moscow that A. I. Alexiev, pilot of the fourth plane, "already has prepared a field for a take-off to be made as i soon as we can send him fuel." Schmidt radioed: "All work of ar- ranging our polar station having been finished, the official opening was held at 2 o'clock this morning under a bright Polar sun. A short meeting was completed with the raising of the Red flag and cheers for Stalin." They, had put in two weeks of intensive labor to prepare the camp for the four they left behind at "the birthplace of weather" to make the observations that will' provide data for long-range forecasting and case the way for Arctic flights. Ivan Papinin.

veteran of the Arctic, was leader of the group which will live on the polar drifts for a year. With him were Ernest Krcnkel, radio operator, Pyotr Shirsof, hydro-biologist, and Eugene Federoff, magnetologist. A blizzard was developing when the planes departed. The temperature was 21.8 above zero Fahrenheit; barometric pressure was 39.70 visibility two and a half to six miles with a 300 yard ceiliing. The drifting Ice floe on which their specially constructed fur and eiderdown lined hut was set up was about 75 miles from the pole.

It had drifted from within 13 miles of the pole since May 21. A radio message from the camp today said the weather was partly cloudy with a fog that reduced visibility to between two and four miles. The temperature was 24.8 Fahrenheit. BROOKLYN PAPER SUSPENDS Times Union, Bought by Eagle, Published for 90 Years. NEW YORK, June 7.

By the Associated Tress. ST. PAUL, June 7. Application of defendants in Kansas City (Mo.) election fraud cases for leave to file a petition for a writ of mandamus to bar United States District Judge Merrill E. Otis, from presiding at their trials was denied by the Eighth District Federal Circuit Court of Appeals this afternoon.

Government and defense attorneys from Kansas City argued the case today before Judges John B. Sanborn, St. Paul; Wilbur F. Booth, Minneapolis, and Joseph W. Wood-rough, Omaha.

The defendants' move was an attempt to force Judge Otis to accept defense affidavits that he was prejudiced and to disqualify himself from presiding at vote fraud trials. Defense counsel emphasized that the proceedings were extraordinary in that the United States District Attorney's office at Kansas City asked that the court give permission to file the petition for a writ of mandamus in response to two requests made by Judge Otis who urged that his right to preside be determined. The Appelate Court was asked to rule on the right of the defense to apply for the writ of mandamus and defer consideration of the merits of the affidavits of prejudice until appeals in finished and pending cases come before it. Twenty-six defendants are involved in the cases awaiting trial or postponed pendng appeals based on legal issues. The next case is set for trial June 21 and the ruling today in effect permits Judge Otis to preside.

BROOKINGS REPORT OPPOSES BOARDS UNDER PRESIDENT Institution Says Such Action Would Make Them "Football of Politics." Bv the Associated Press. WASHINGTON, June 7.
