FALL CASE HELD TRIAL BY ORDEAL Judge Permits it to Go on Despite Protests of Prosecution WASHINGTON, Oct. 11. VP) Tho determination of Albert B. Fall to force the government to try him on' new charges of bribery or dismiss the indictment caused him today to leave his sickbed, enter court in a wheel chair, and through counsel successfully oppose the government's motion for a mistrial. With that the trial continued. Two witnesses were heard while Fall slumped weakly in a tall chair. He will be taken to court by relatives again tomorrow. Earlier in the day and prior to Fall's dramatic appearance, Justice William Hitz announced from the bench that four physicians who had examined the former cabinet officer at the court's request had found he was suffering from bronchial pneumonia, and that his attendance at court would endanger his life. At that session, government counsel urged the court to declare a mistrial on the basis of the physicians' reports. The defense objected, saying Fall should have the opportunity to "secure vindication" and asked a recess until Monday. Justice Hitz reserved his decision which he did not give, until this afternoon, saying "it is not a trial by a Jury, it is a trial by ordeal." Frank J. Hogan, chief counsel for the defense, said Fall would continue the trial or die in court. He said he regretted it was necssary for Fall to continue, adding Fall himself insisted that the government finish his prosecution or dismiss the case. Fall, Hogan said, had told he would rather die in court than have a mistrial declared and the charge continue to hang over him. "The responsibility for what happens now is the government's," Hogan declared. , Owen Roberts, special government counsel, said the government did not wish to go on, pointing out it had lost its motion to halt the case. "The government has done all it could to prevent a M.'k man being brought into court," Roberts said. We do not intend to dismiss the indictment against Fail. s. o.Ifushed FROM STEAMER Pacific Ashore on Frying Pan Shoals; Ship Rushes To Rescue NEW YORK, Oct. ll.-W)-The The Mackay Radio company tonight announced it had picked up an SOS from the Brltis,-, steamer Pacific stating she was ashore on Frying Pan Shoals. 11 miles south-southeast of Cape Fear on the Virginia coast, and required assistance.

ASHURST REBUKE STRICKEN FROM SENATE RECORD Watson's Effort to Read-Tele-gram Attacking Arizona Is Failure BOOK CENSOR BANNED Senate Decides Customs Men Should Not Pass Upon Property of Books WASHINGTON, Oct. 11. WJ An attempt by Senator Watson of Indiana, republican leader, to have read in the senate today a telegram from the executive committee ot America's Wage Earners' Protective conference, protesting a speech made in the senate by Senator Ashurst, democrat, Arizona, was blocked by Senator Robinson, the democratic leader. Senator Robinson heatedly condemned the reading of a telegram attacking a member of the senate. Watson started to withdraw the telegram, which had been addressed to Senator Reed, republican, Pen nsylvania, but before h could do so, Robinson asked that it be expunged from the record. There was a choru3 of ayes from the democratic side. Watson then explained that he wanted to withdraw the message, signed by Mathew Woll and other officers of the association, if it was regarded as an attack upon Senator Ashurst. Censorship Fanned The senate went on record for a less rigid prohibition against the entry into the United States of foreign literature that might be regarded as of an immoral of seditious character. By a vote of 3S to 3G it adopted an amendment by Senator Cutting, republican, New Mexico, striking from the tariff bill the provision in existing law barring the importation of books held by customs officials to be of an immoral nature and eliminating part of a new provision which would have closed the doors to entry of literature advocating treason or insurrection. At the suggestion of Senator Couzens, republican, Michigan, the New Mexico senator modified his proposal to retain that section of the new provision prohibiting entry of literature urging forcible resistance to any law of the United States or containing a threat against the ljfe of an American citizen. In this form It was adopted. Rejects Amendment Earlier the senate had rejected an amendment by Cutting which would have permitted entrance of all literature that might be held to be immoral or seditious. The vote was 48 to 33 for retention of the session as written in the bill. The opposition that was heaped on the New Mexico senator's original proposal led Cutting to modify it and as a result he drew seven additional senators to his cause. The issue clearly was an individual one. Senator Cutting held the floor most of the day for his proposals, although he had assistance from others, including Senators La Fol-lette, republican, Wisconsin, and Tydings, democrat, Maryland. Like a schoolmaster lecturing a class in the classics and the philosophies of such literary geniuses as Homer, Shakespeare, Dante, Milton and others, the youthful looking senator from the southwest pic-ured a "clerk of the bureau of customs" passing on whether these or works of a political nature transgressed decency or could befoul the minds of Americans believing In free speech and government by the people. The youth of the land, he said, must be guarded against moral corruption by their families and the laws of the states and not by an individual customs inspector. It was ridiculous to bar an occasional immoral book, he argued, when adolescent children could read In the daily newspapers of murders and sordid love scandals. LADY PAGET DIES NEWHAM-ON-SEVERN, England. Oct. 11. VP) Walburga, Lady Paget, famous figure of a past generation who assisted in arranging the marriage between King Edwrd and Queen Alexandra, died today from burns received when her clothing caught fire as she was sitting beside her fireplace.

WillRogers Says BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Oct. 11. That certainly was nice of Connie Mack not to discourage the National league entirely. He will keep fooling, around iW-viVfl and have to atart p'6 some of his best sr nitrher vet. If the series can go seven games and play to capacity they have a chance to merge with the City National of New York. By the way, an old country boy banker from Colorado slicked the city slicker bankers out of one-half millino bucks and they give him 15 years so fast that you would have thought he had assassinated a big government official. You let a city banker slick and old country boy out of something and before night he will merge with another bank and finally wind up as a member of the Federal Reserve. Yours, WILL ROGERS. AIMEE, PANTAGES STORIES LINKED Usherette Latest to Tell Court Pantages Sought Her False Testimony LOS ANGELES. Oct. 11. (P) Aimee Semple McPherson, evangelist, who has been involved In a series of sensational inquiries In recent years, tonight was the focal point of two new Investigations by the district attorneys office. Affidavits filed by five pastors of her churches, two of whom were dismissed this week, accused Mrs. McPherson of misappropriating church funds. The complaining pastors were Dr. John Ooben, former executive of Angelus Temple, Mrs. McPherson's mother church, who was dismissed by the evangelist because of a disagreement over policies; the Rov. H. E. Alford of Angeles Temple, the Rev. Wiliard Pope of Pomona, Calif.; discharged last night; the Rev. R. L. Larson of Hollywood and the Rev. J. H. Stilton of El Monte, Calif. They alleged the evangelist converted to her own use an unnamed sum donated to the church. Dr. Gobcn said he had hired private detectives to watch the evangelist, and informed the district attorney's office that affidavits that Mrs. McPherson attended a mysterious conference in Alexander T. Paniages' home within an hour after the theater man's wife was convicted of manslaughter were available. The detectives later filed the affidavits. General denials that there had b'"en such a conference were made by Mrs. McPherson, Pantages, the theater man's two sons, and attorneys alleged to have been present. Superior Judge Carlos 9. Hardy, Mrs. Lo's Pantages' trial Judge, who reefntly was tried on charges of accepting a $2000 "love offering" from Mrs. McPherson by the California state senate, before which body impeachment proceedings against him failed, said he knew nothing of the alleged conference. gibe Vfijoim jpailsj Hfeif will broadcast the WORLD SERIES over KG AR Via.

LINN & ALLEN, Attorneys lor Plaintiff Against Council THREE REASONS ARE ASSIGNED IN COMPLAINT Bonus Is Called Illegal, Not Budgeted and From Wrong Fund NINE ARE DEFENDANTS Money Was Paid to City Attorney in Addition To Salary A suit seeking the return ol the $2000 fee paid City Attorney Ben C. Hill in the Gray defalcation settlement on the ground that it was illegally paid was filed late yesterday afternoon in the Pima county superior . court against the mayor, city attorney, city auditor and members of the city council by attorneys for the State Consolidated Publishing company, publishers of The Arizona Daily Star. Those named as defendants in tho complaint are: Ben C. Hill, city attorney. Frank J. Cordis, councilman. F. E. Gerlach, councilman. W. H. Hart, councilman. P. M. Elias, councilman. George L. Reid, councilman, E. D. Rockwell, ex-councilman C. E. Pequignot, elty auditor. W, A. Julian, mayor. The fillnsr of the complaint follows ft demand mado more than sixty days ago on the mayor and council that they take steps to secure the return of the fee on the grounds that It. was paid without authority of law. At the first council meeting, 30 days after the written demand was made, (ho council declared that it had not had tlmo to take the matter up, and that furthermore, in ti)e absence of the mayor, who was on vacation, nothing had been donn on the matter by the city finance committee. At the second meeting of the council after the demand was presented, Elias, who is chairman of tho finance committee, was absent from the meeting, It being said that that he was suddenly taken 111 and could not attend. Ellas was seen on the street at five o'clock prior to the meeting and was at Ills place of business the next morning. Nothing was reported by the finance committee relative to the demand. The complaint states that the payment of the fee was Illegal for three reasons: 1. That the work done in the defalcation settlement was part of Hill's regular duties as oity attorney and that he wss not entitled to an extra fee. 2. That the sum paid Hill was not included in the budget of the city as adopted August 10, 1928, and that he was therefore not entitled to the fee. 3. That the sum paid Hill was from the sinking fund for bond interest and bond redemption and therefore the money was not legally available for the purpose for which it was used in pyment to Hill. The fee of $2000 was paid to the city attorney April 24, 1929, on suh-dition to the $2000 paid to HI!!, the dered to the city in the settlement of the embezzlement case growing out of the defalcations of George Gray, former city treasurer. In ad-church will officiate. Mr. Hawkins' city paid $4000 to the firm of Mathews and Bilhy, of Tucson, which was outside counsel employed by the council. The payment nf the bill of Hill was approved by the mayor and the finance committee, which, at that time, included In its membership E. D. Rockwell, Frank Cordis and P. M. Elias. The payment was later ratified by iha mayor and entire council at regular meeting, May 6. Mayor Julian, when asked regarding the payment to a city employe who was already drawing a monthly salary from the city for handling its legal deportment, declared In an Interview published in The Arizona. Dally Star that the payment of the $2'i"0 was "good business, the act of a business administration," and added that tho city was more than recompensed in the services rendered. He called the $2000 a "honus for meritorious service" and was angry that the act should be termed questionable from any standpoint. TWO DIE IN FIRE NEW YORK, Oct. 11.
