WRITER ON CRIME TAKEN IN BATTLE George Small, Who Said "You Can't Win With Crime," Wounded In Gun Fight With Police. YOUNG MOTHER KILLED IN EXCHANGE OF SHOTS Woman Wheeling .Baby to Hospital Innocently .Comes In Range of Fire—Child Escapes Injury, : -. ' NEW YORK, ' Nov. 13.—George Email, who onfte wrote an essay In which he said ''You can't win with crime," and then later escaped from Auburn state prlsqn during last July's convict riots, was under police guard In Cumberland hospital today with a bullet wound . in the. head, received during a running-gun fight In Brook. lyn with officers. . -'. \ Mrs. Irene Sumner, a young mother V^p-ho was wheeling • her child to a f hospital, was killed in the exchange of shots. A steel-jacketed bullet—not the type used by police—killed her. The spectacular, gun battle started In an Adams street garage, where Small and a companion, . believed to be Arthur Barry, escaped jewel robber, had posed as detectives to extort money from. the owners. Patrolman Louis Schackne, who was summoned by David Katz, one of the 'proprietors, arrested! Small .at gun point and removed one revolver from hia pocket., Companion Gets Away. Meanwhile Small's companion, who, had momentarily been forgotten, slipped out of sight only to remind the " policeman of his presence by a pistol shot which rang close to Shackne's head. In the resultant, excitement, Small dashed out of the garage and pumped bullets' from a second revolver Into the doorway to< prevent '.immediate pursuit.... Then the escaped -convict jumped aboard a passing automobile, pressed his gun against Frank Donofrio, the driver, and ordered him to speed up his car. In the back seat' were Mr. and Mrs. David Hanson, who sat be-- wildered by the melodrama suddenly enacted before them. "' -•- '" Meanwhile,- Schackne, - joiined • by 4 other police, commandeered another car and gave chase. Several shots were exchanged and Mrs. Sumner innocently came Into the line of fire. The perambulator, with her little daughter In it, rolled to safety as the mother collapsed on the sidewalk. Small jumped from his car and backed behind one of the ramp's, of Manhattan bridge approach. Police closed In on him and he pulled a third pistol from his pockets and started to shoot but a police bullet struck him in the mouth..

PARIS, Nov. 13.—With resumption of the Shearer inquiry following Premier MacDonald's visit, people will no doubt continue to wonder what it's all about. I have just seen an editorial in a newspaper trade-journal, "Editor and Publisher," placing all the blame for Shearerla lobbying on American news, paper correspondents in Geneva. They, says the paper in question, should have ferreted out 'Shearer's purposes, and exposed him to the public gaze. A word In favor of my Geneva colleagues is in order. I happened to be in Geneva at the time of the con- 'ference on disarmament, 'and saw the difficulties under which they worked. , Shearer was very much in evidence wherever the newspaper correspondents' assembled, and gave out a great dea.1 of information. So . far as I tyiow, he never made a statement that was not true, • What was more important, from the .viewpoint of the Geneva correspondents of American papers, Shearer generally gave out all the important information hours before the official delegates of the American government would deign to receive the correspondents ac all. "Nothing to • say, gentlemen," was the customary reply when the delegates came out of a "secret session," A few ' minutes later "Bill" Shearer would tell exactly what happened. Somebody told Shearer. Somebody .who would not talk to the accredited / representatives of the American press. .^ And that somebody was an official -..delegate of the American government.' Shearer, to all appearances, was the "unofficial spokesman" of the American delegation. So far as I could see, he told the truth. At all events, wily blame the Geneva correspondents for reporting what he said; when , very often he was the only one who would talk? And why not find, out if hia statements were - unauthorized, who supplied him with the information! And why? WILL INSTALL VOTING MACHINES IN PHILA, PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 13.—If the manufacturers can supply them in time, the voting machines approved at tha election last week will be installed for a try-out in the First ward here for the May primary election, it was learned today. County Commissioners Kuenzel and Holmes yesterday said that under the law installation must start beginning with the First division of the First ward and then op down the Ifne, according to numerical sequence of wards and divisions. It was unlikely, they said, that the city would be fully equipped with the new machines before the November election. They hope to have the First ward completely equipped for the May primary, however, and get a good idea of how the machines operate. FUNERAL NOTICE:. The funeral of Mrs. Geraldine H. Ginter, who died at Puncttnsvllle, will be held from the Tobias and Laughlin funeral home on Friday afternoon -«.t 2.30 o'clock, with services in charge of Rev. Carey -6.

KIWANIANS HEAR OF NEW CALENDAR Altoona Klwanlans and others of the community in the past couple of years have heard more or less talk concerning the Inaugural ''.oC a' new calendar that wduld mark the time of future years. Lieutenant tipldnel H. Edmund tJullls, a fellow-.of -the Royal Geographical society, spoke to the Kiwanls club on the proposed ohahges In the calendar. His talk was instructive and was heard with marked interest. '. President Dr. George E. Alleman presided and the usual routine customs were observed. The 'announcement was made that Kiwanlan J. R. Klepser had been admitted to the Altoona hospital during the morning for an operation,, and that .the father of Kiwanian Charles A; Auker had died. .-Secretary Tillai'd presented petitions for tho reduction of federal taxes. The nominat- Ihg committee made a' partia'l report and asked for 'additional petitions of nominations, the names to be announced at .the next, meeting. Colonel Bullis was presented and spoke on "The Romance of the Calendar;" He presented the early history of the calendar, stating how the early Egyptians had used the .moon to mark the time and the , seasons. He also told how a change was'made by the priests, • making the year- one of six moon months Instead of five and how ages of the patriarchs of the Bible measured < with' the present calendar, were not nearly as old, their nges having been marked by the moon calendar years. ... ' He then told of how In 1923 a 'movement was launched for the establishment of a- new calendar to be knjwn as the International calendar, one. of thirteen months of 28 days each. He dwelt at some length In explaining the benefits of,the .calendar in business, that'it woUld'start with Sunday, that there would; be .a stabilization cf holidays, in the'number of •worn days and how it would afford greater opportunity for the comparison of business. He stated that if a /final decision was reached to adopt-the new calendar that it would become effective on Jan.: 1, 1939. CARAWAY CALLS GRUNDY WELCHER (By United Preen.) WASHINGTON, " D.'C;, "Nov. 13.— Joseph R. Grundy,- president of ; 'the Pennsylvania Manufacturers'. association, was charged with befng a "Welcher" by Chairman Caraway of the senate lobby investigating committee today after 'Grundy refused to- submlt the list of "preferred and common senators" he had promised previously. Grundy blushed at. Caraway's remark, but.declared it would be unbecoming for him, a private citizen, to make up such a list. "BOSSY* GILLIS AGAIN , NOMINATED FOR MAYOR NEWBURYPORT, Mass., Nov. 13.— Newburyport apparently appreciates the efforts of its spectacular young mayor, ''Bossy" Gillis, to put it on the map. - ' . • •, ' • The two-year administration of -the auburn-haired ex-sailor, who spent two months of his term in the county 'jail, was endorsed by voters in the municipal primary yesterday when "Bossy" came within a few hundred ballots of polling as many votes as his four opponents combined. The vote was ae follows: Gillis, 2,338; former Mayor Mlch'ael Cashman,, 1,612; City Councillor Henry B. Little, 921 j former Fire Chief John F. Cutter, 444'; Oscar H. Nelson, 145. The- names of Gillis and Cashman will appear on the ballot in the forthcoming city election. "Bossy" once served a jail sentence for punching Cashman on the nose while the .latter was mayor. More re- cently^Glllls served a jail term for operating his gasoline filling.station without a permit. "Bossy" had expressed confidence he would win the primary "in a walk." WOMAN BURNED TO DEATH WHILE POURING KEROSENE CORNING, . N. Y., Nov. 13.—Mrs. Leroy Hickock was burned to death today when her dress became ignited as she was ppurlng kerosene on a stove in her home at Big Flats, near here.

(By United Press.) CAMDBN, N. J., Nov. 13.—Gladys May Parks, former night club entertainer, model and movie pianist, continued with an air of scorn today to resist efforts X)f authorities to make her change her story that two babies placed in her care had died by accident. \ Throughout the nlght-t-the third she has spent in the jail Were—she was questioned by police, but defended her original story that she had buried the two children but had not murdered them'. . Just before daybreak, the woman who 'has faced three angry, threatening mobs and almost ceaseless interrogation,, lay down on .the cot in her cell for a few hours' sleep, for later in the day she Was to lace her aged father, George Parks, for the first time since she- gave herself up. The meeting was arranged by Prosecutor Clifford A. Baldwin of Camden county in the belief that it might break the iron reserve of the woman and cause her to tell more details of the deaths of the two children, Dorothy Rogers, aged \, and Timothy Rogers, aged 2, who had been entrusted to het by their father, Alan N. Rogers, insurance salesman. Parks has been in custody since the finding of the body of little Dorothy at. National park. In his first statement to the police, Parks, who lived with his daughter at the time Dorothy was killed, said'that he was drunk most of the time ;and was not cognizant of what took' place at the Fifth street, Camden, house. Chief developments In the case overnight were: . Announcement by 'police that Miss Parks had tried two years ago to adopt the 6-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph E. Austin of Camden, in an alleged scheme to black- mall certain men by claiming the child' to be theirs. -.Announcement by the 'prosecutor that. , the: woman had dismembered Dorothy's body before hiding it in the isolated spot at National park. •A statement by the suspect's father sayingvhe would take all the blame for his- daughter's actions. ' Police believed it'to be merely a paternal gesture , of ,< the; aged man. Prosecutor Baldwin is convinced, he said, .that she had been carefully coached by someone with legal knowledge.- "She is the toughest customer I've ever had," he 'said. He pointed to her undisturbed poise during the pas.t few days'when her life had .been threatened by mobs. Yesterday, she was twice forced to face the threats ot her erstwhile neighbors, when she was taken on visits to her former residences' here. Wild-eyed women tried frantically to claw her and pull her hair. "Baby-killer!" they shrieked; "Let us Iiave Her, we'll, save the state sonie'MoneyV'.';; '"-•••'• But :the expression" of almost scornful' contempt on the suspect's face never changed. She t'-red through her -thlck-lensed glasses straight at the'crowd, with perfect control over her emotions. GANG OF BANDITS RAIDS NAVAL BASE • (Continued from Page 1.) Lieutenant Clinton Thro, met the same fate. .The bandits then rounded up seven civilian employes throughout the building, tied them with sheets and left them in the • dormitory. Leaving five men to guard the prisoners, the bandits then began work on the safe on the eighth floor. Detectives said the first "shot" of explosives apparently left th'e safe door in such a position that the robbers could neither force it back In place for a second shot nor pry It open with bars. They Worked at least five hours to get the cash, finally leaving Without freeing their prisoners. Detectives were confident the $88,000 would be found intact in the safe, but Rear Admiral T. S. Jewett declined to express an opinion until the aafe is opened. PA. GENERAL TRANSIT GETS MOTORBUS RIGHTS HARRISBURG, Nov. 13.—The Pennsylvania General Transit Co., subsidiary of the Pennsylvania railroad, was granted permission by the public service commission today to operate motorbus service between Philadelphia and / Baltimore and Washington via Chester and Wilmington. Approval by the commission gives its official sanction for the operation qf the section of the route in Pennsylvania. Broad Street station, Philadelphia, will be the Philadelphia terminal of the new bus route. REMOVING LANDSLIDE.

' • STABILIZATION OF ARMAMENTS URGED (Continued irom Page i.) ;he greatest respect and attention ;hroughout the world. Realized by President. "But in considering his proposals, H seems clear that President Hoover simself realizes that regard must be lad to . changing circumstances consequential upon extension of world agreements for the abolition of war; and a discussion of action which might have to be taken In'time of war be- omes largely academic if peace is es- ablished and war outlawed." Declaring that "I consider the pros- >ects for the forthcoming five-power isarmament conference hopeful," Alexander continued: "If as the first step, an agreement :an be secured for stabilization to pre- rent either a continuance of re-commencement of competitive armaments, great .step forward will have been made. When stabilization has been ecured, you then have a point from which with every improvement in .vorld political relationships, pro-rata eduction in minimum defense requirements can be agreed upon a table." Make Agreement Possible, The sea lord added that If such itablllzatlon were secure at future con- 'erencea, then it could well be said hat, "if at a given date of such stabll- zation agreement, before there was reasonable experience of the effect of he Kellogg pact, or of extended use of .he league covenant, or of the working of the optional clause, such-and-such standard of defense was sufficient, hen surely when such experience is available, It will be possible for us around a table to agree upon further reductions.""This is important," Alexander con- ,tnued, "because world disarmament-in effective form cannot be accomplished until It is general and by agreement." Speaking of Anglo-American rela- .lons, the sea lord commented: 'If two great and powerful English- speaking peoples cannot understand one another, then how on earth can we possibly get a world entente that we all want?" The sea lord, who is a former Baptist lay preacher, continually smoked a pipe as he talked in a rich, baritone voice. He has a striking, forceful personality and has a knack of making a Visitor feel at home, partly by his pleasant voice and the disarming smile which he uses to its greatest effect when he desires to return a negative to an indiscreet question. Physically, he is built like Georges Carpentler, a bundle of energy and muscles concealed in a relatively medium-sized body, Effects of Progregg. Asked what he believed the effect of scientific progress would be on future wars, he replied: "History tends to prove that every new inventor of an instrument of destruction supports his product with the idea that if it can only be adopted, nations will be less inclined to go to war, but in fact the same history a'ao proves that such Inventors never have the hoped-for deterrent effect. The remedy is to abolish war." Speaking briefly of domestic matters, Alexander proudly displayed the plain black suit and pair of boots he wore, saying: "They are products of the cooperative movement, which indicates, ihunk God, that they were made by happy, contented, well-paid and healthy workers." Thereupon he stressed wholeheartedly that he supported the co- PERFECT RECORDS MADE IN SCHOOLS STEVENS SCHOOL. -Grade. 1—Wilbur Caldwell, Americo Caporusclo, Fraiik.

CLEVELAND, Nov. 13.—One of the first men who ever flew around the world believes that commercial avla- lon soon will be offering service that vlll surpass what Is now available as freatly as modern railway trains sur>ass the trains of the pro-Civil war :ra. Ho is Erik Nelson, the first success* 'ul round-the-world filer and today lales manager for the Boeing Airplane Company of Seattle, which is said to perate the two longest air transport routes In the country. Nelson recently inaugurated a 20- lour passenger line between Chicago and San Francisco—the first all-air day and night flight of that distance. Immense 18-passcnger ships, powered by hrco engines totalling more than 1600 lorsopower, take passengers over the jroad plains of the middle west and across tho Rockies at night, guided by experienced pilots with the aid of a radio range system and direct radio communication. These ships cruise at a speed of 135 miles an hour, yet Nelson looks at hem as crude compared with what ho expects to come within only a few ears. "Speed Is what we want today, even ahead of safety and luxury," he says. 'And so wo are'giving our passengers speed, of course with as great a facer of safety as could possibly be had. Jater on we will .undoubtedly have planes with berths, but at present tho demand Is for speed first of all. "As a practical minded aeronautical man, I can vision planes with DO or more passengers. Pullman service will be established for overnight runs, thus enabling people to travel between cities as distant as 1,200 miles without the oss of any business hours. "Refueling in the air will be utilized n some cases to eliminate time that vould otherwise be lost In landing. mlted servloe, as distinguished from ocal service, will give higher speeds and fewer landings to the through raveler. Small high speed planes fly- ng 200 miles an hour will be used for handling valuable mall and express, vith time as a vital factor." Perhaps the greatest limitation to jrogress along this line Is tho lack cl space or facilities for what Nelson erms "loading fields!,' as close to the leart of cities as possible. Once cities realize the Importance of providing such facilities, he believes, aviation will progress even beyond his own 'advanced dreams. With a loading field or "union depot" within a city, and a large landing field outside, the same passenger facilities could be had from airplane travel as are had today from railroads. Trie city field would merely bo a place to discharge or ; take on passengers, while the other field with Its hangars would act like the railroad yards) and roundhouses. , ... "Smaller landing areas could be made possible within cities, by the use of arresting gears, which could be an improvement on the typo now In uso aboard airplane carries," says Nelson. "Only one broad runway about 1,600 foot long and set In the direction of tha prevailing winds would bo enou for such service. All the refueling and Dther servicing of the airplanes would be done on the larger field outside the FURTHER DECLINE i IN COTTON MARKET By GEORGE DEWITT MOULSON (Copyright,- 1929, by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, Nov. 13.—A sharp break in foreign quotations for American, Indian and Egyptian cotton today precipitated a further decline in contract prices both here, and in New Orleans. Lowest records were made on the opening call when December sold a, dollar a bale below last night's closing figures and within a few points of 16'/5c. The quantity of scale buying orders in later deliveries developed more resistance so that initial figures in March, May and July were off only about half the decline in the December position. Following a break of over half a cent In two days, operators were more disposed to cover short obligations at the lower price level while a number of professionals bought on the theory of some improvement after the extensive loss In prices the past few weeks. Support increased as the session advanced until prices had recovered ail the early loss at one time before .early buyers resold and trading developed an Irregular course of fluctuations. Events in the stock market continued to influence operations in commodity markets and the decision of mill executives at a meeting In Spartanburg to curtail the output of prints and sheetings 20 per cent for the immediate future showed the degree of uncertainly over the future. "Every city that expects to participate in the 'progress of the future should prepare for such fields." porusclo, Charles Daniels, Roy Dobson, Eugene Fitzgerald, Harold Foor, John Gardner, Raymond Kirk, William Klrkpatrlck, Logan Lowers, Richard Miller, Louis Pollgnone, Lyman Relf- snyder, John Shade, Charles Stackhouse.

J., Nov. 13.—Governor Larson's automobile was held up By Jtll-IA BLANSHARD, NEA Service Writer. NEW YORK, Nov. 13.—Long gkirts cannot possibly mean long hair thla winter, In the opinion of Antolne, famous Parisian hair-dresser, just arrived for his semi-annual visit here. Since Antolne dresses (or "sculpts," as he calls It the msot famous heads of his own country and others, his forecasts are apt to sum ^up hirsute- chic for some time to come. Hair may be a little longer In the back, so one may have a .dainty snood or curls. Maybe a trifle longer on the sides, to allow for a softer and more, feminine coiffure. But long hair that reaches to the waist—shade! of mid-Vlctortan days—is old-fashioned, hampering, ridiculous' for this active age. It's out of keeping With today's sleek woman and therefore is "out," once and for all.) So says An- tolne. "The epitome of chic today ia ami" pllclty, comfort and naturalness," An- tolne explained. "The Victorian age has no inspiration for us. Styles were ~ artificial, tortuous, at variance with the spirit of smartness today. They reflected the age. / Today's coiffures must do the same thing. The historic period that is in accord with modern art and life is the Greek age. There is inspiration there, for moderns, in their out-door dances, their sports, their freedom. But, though length of v hair IB not affected by .the changing silhouette, the coiffure itself is, according to Antoine. Softer, feminine lines call for a head silhouette in keeping, while sports clothes need a sleek, casual hair arrangement. Antolne, therefore, has 'stylea of, coiffures for various times.of the day, as well as varieties for different types of women. For morning sportswear, the smart woman may wear her hair swirled, not back and downwards, but; up and forward, across her forehead and following down on the other side. Come afternoon, with perhaps a high tea in her own home, Antoine suggests a coiffure of tiers of curls, an arrangement suitable only when she Is not going to wear a hat.
