The 12 men were at that hour taken to their dormitories until this morning, when the deliberation will continue. The defendants, Jerry, Charlie and Claude, "are on trial a second time for the slaying of J. Ed Thackston in December, 1924.

Mauldin Will likely keep the jury together throughout today, if necessary, before ordering a mistrial, it is expected in view of the length and importance of the trial. ASK FURTHER CHARGE From 2:18 o'clock yesterday afternoon until 9:30 o'clock last night, the outside world did not hear from the jury, except in seeing the 12 going to and from lunch and supper. At 9:30 o'clock in the night, a message was sent in that further charge in respect to the law on circumstantial evidence was desired, and Judge Mauldin so instructed the jury. He then admonished the jury to address themselves seriously to the proposition before them in an erlort to reach a judgment. No trial in the annals of Greenville county has aroused more widespread interest and discussion than that of the Hesters.

(AP) Acting on the expressed prinrlple that no law can establish scientific fact, the house of delegates of the American Medical association voted today to prepare for submission to Congress a bill designed to remove legal restrictions on the amount of whisky a physician may prescribe for his patients. The proposition was discussed In executive session and the vote was taken after two hours of debate, which produced a proviso that the proposed measure be framed In cooperation with prohibition' enforcement vO -Wrf t Bertaud Refuses To Be Removed From Paris Hop Secures Injunction Against Being Ousted As Navigator Of 'Columbia' WEATHER BAD NO FLIGHT NEW YORK, May 18 (AP) Lloyd W. Bertaud obtained a temporary injunction late today against Charles A. Lcvine to restrain him from supplanting Bertaud as co-pilot and navigator of the Bellanca airplane "Columbia", on the proposed nonstop flight from New York to Paris. STAY ON GROUND NEW YORK, May 18 (APj The uiroe monoplanes which it is hoped will fly some 3,500 miles to Paris, did not even get off the ground today. Prevented from leaving for France by fog in the Atlantic air lanes, the planes were kept in their hangars by winds which made test flights inad visable. During the day efforts were made to harmonize the embattled factions of the Bellanca camp, but so far as could be ascertained at the time results were negligible. The two-man crew of the Bellanca met in a Garden City hotel with riiovloc T.ovinp Vinnrl nf the com pany backing the flight, and Giu seppe iseiianca, uie pianea ue.ntiiici.

NO MORE TESTS Inclement weather prevented the final weight tests of the Fokker in which Byrd, Norville and Acosta are to fly, and Lindbergh's plane stayed in its hangar because It was ready to leave on the shortest notice and there were no further preparations to be made. , Late today the weather bureau dispelled the last hope that the hop off might begin early tomorrow morning. There were indications of slow clearing, but these were not sufficiently strong to give any chance of a takeoff before noon. The Bellanca plane remained In its hangar while persons interested in its flight attempted to come to some agreement on their many differences, monetary and otherwise. Santa Maria II IS Endangered By Fire QUEBEC, May 18 (AP) Destruction by fire, which was the fate of his first plane, tonight threatened Francisco de Pinedo's "Santa Maria II" after he had returned here when bad weather interrupted his flight from Montreal to Shippegan, N. B. While the plane was being fueled alongside a barge, one of de Pinedo's mechanics attempted to light a small oil heater. The heater caught fire. The flames shot up from the burning oil and for a moment It was feared they might set ablaze the gasoline which was being poured into the Santa Maria IPs tanks. The fire on the barge was quickly extinguished, however, and the plane was not damaged, De Pinedo's first plane, in which he reached the United States in his four-continent flight, was destroyed by fire at Roosevelt dam, Ariz., when a match was thrown accidentally into the gasoline covered waters of Roosevelt lake, where the monoplane was moored. authorities.

Officials of both looted banks said the leader of the bandits undoubtedly was Kimcs, elusive young desperado whose sensational exploits have been a modern parallel to the careers of Jesse James and Al Jennings. DDNTRIftL LITTLE DOCK; Deputies Guard Alleged Slayer Of Girl Troops Also Ready INNOCENCE IS CLAIMED LITTLE ROCK, Ark., May 18. (AP) With 150 deputies surrounding the courthouse and & detachment of Arkansas national guard ready for duty at an instant's notice, Lonnie Dixon, negro youth, will go to trial tomorrow for the murder of Floella McDonald, 12-year-old white girl. WITHHOLD CHARGE Charges of assault, also lodged against the negro will be held in abeyance by the state. Though the boy has confessed to officers here that he lured the little girl to the belfry of the First Presbyterian church during a rainstorm on April 12, that he assaulted her and then slew her with a brick when she wecp-ingly declared she would "tell her papa." Dixon has told officers recently that he will fight the case to the last ditch. He pleaded not guilty to the charge of murder. WAS ONLY LOOKOUT Dixon told police that he will declare on the stand he was only a lookout at the church door, while Henry Hudson, 16, employed at the Little Rock Boys' club, across the street, assaulted and murdered the girl. Hudson was arrested at the time of the finding of the girl's body, and has been held in jail since. No chances will be taken of a repetition of the riotous scenes of the night of May 4, when John Carter, negro, was lynched and his body dragged through the streets and burned at Broadway and Ninth streets, when the case comes to trial. Brothers In Duel To Death After Quarrel ARLINGTON, Ga., May 18 fAP) Jack Wilkinson, 30, and his brother, Dewey, 28, after an argument in a store here, today fought a duel to death.

( AP) Prohibition was blamed in part for agricultural depression and charges made that federal enforcement officers have made more money out of prohibition than anything else in the house of representatives of the Illinois general assembly today. The debate preceded an 80 to 63 vote to repeal the state laws to enforce prohibition, Including the search and seizure act. "If the so-called dry members of this house will vote as they drink, this bill will get a 90 per cent vote," declared Representative Thomas O'Grady, Chicago, after characterizing prohibition Dashing into the little town this morning in three motorcars, the nine members of the gang divided into groups and drove up to the three banks. Two of the banks, the Farmers National and the First National bank, were invaded immediately. "Throw up your hands," came the command" almost simultaneously in the two banks, and employes and others in both institutions complied. Both bandit groups then began a systematic search for money.

Montague, who is charged with the murder of Mrs. Mary R. Cooper, wealthy Asheville widow, it was learned tonight. WILL CALL JURY As a preliminary to that step, Coroner Carroll will call his jury together and return a verdict in the case. The inquest was adjourned the day the body was found until further evidence could bo gathered. The case at that time was regarded as suicide. After an autopsy had definitely exploded the suicide theory, the investigation swung around to Mrs. Montague, and since that her position has assumed increasing importance. Today the police announced that their latest investigations had conclusively eliminated the presence of other persons in the alleged murder plot. DEFENDANT CALM The latter, apparently serene in lier confidence that the officer can "get nothing on her," is spending her time quietly at the county jail, awaiting for a move on the part of the solicitor looking to action by the grand jury. The police have announced that they have sufficient evidence to warrant the grand jury in returning a true bill, but they make no secret of the fact that further evidence will be necessary before the case can go to trial. The investigation early today along an entirely new line is said to have unearthed clues that form some of the strongest links in the chain of circumstantial evidence. The nature of the clues was not disclosed by the authorities, however. McAfee Made Officer Of State Association COLUMBIA, May 18. (AP) W. M. Goldfinch of Conway, was today elected president of the South Carolina Funeral Directors and Embalmers' association for the ensuing year, and Myrtle Beach was selected as the next annual meeting place of the association at the closing day's session of the 29th annual convention in Columbia, at the Jefferson hotel. Other officers elected were as follows: Thomas McAfee of Greenville, first vice president; J. B. Hatcher, of Gaffney, second vice president; J. S. Andrews of Greenwood, was re-elected secretary-treasury for the 11th year. Delegates selected to the national convention at Cincinnati In the fall were as follows: Thomas F. McAfee, E. L. Couch, E. L. Oulla and W. F. Cox. as a "Joke." Prohibition, he maintained, has taken from the grain growers one of his principal markets and thus is partly responsible for the plight of the farmers. Federal enforcement officers, said Representative Truman A. Snell of Carllnville, are for prohibition because they are making money. "Federal enforcement officers," , he said, "from Andrew Mellon ' down, have made more money out of prohibition than they ever did out of anything else." (Continued on Pace t, Col, 7) ! Grief-Stricken Parents Gather From Country Beside Ruins i FIVE CHILDREN OF ONE ; FAMILY ARE KILLED IN DEATH-DEALING BLAST j Instigator Of Crime, Insane After Tax Trouble, Also ; Meets Death j BATH, Mich., May IS. (AP) Touched off by an ap- parently demented farmer who jfell victim to his own devices, j two dynamite explosions at the Consolidated school here today brought death to at least 38 persons 33 of them pupils in the school. Most of ' them were tots ranging in age from six to eight years. Forty others injured, were in Lansing hospitals. TEACHERS VICTIMS The dead, in addition to the 33 pupils, whose bodies had been recovered tonight, were the farmer, Andrew Kchoc, who served as treasurer of the school district; E. E. Huyck, the principal; Miss Haze1 V-'eatherbee, third grade teacher, Glen Smith, Bath" postmaster ant". Nelson McFarran, a Bath resident. The latter two were passing th" building at the time of the explosion. Search of the ruins was continued until darkness overtook th; workers, after state police had estimated that from a dozen to 1. bodies remained to be located. The explosions at the school followed by only a short time a bias, at the nearby farm home of Kehoe The blast and subsequent fire de molished the Kehoe home and bam The entire north wing of the school, a three-story brick structure, was levelled by the blasts, which caught all the pupils indoors, over their books or engaged in recitation periods in their rooms. SURVIVORS TELL OF CRASH Survivors of the disaster describee' the explosion as an "awful crash' followed an instant later by thr clashing of the walls and the falling of the ceilings. Many of th( pupils were crushed at their desk; as the tons of bricks and beam; trashed down. State police, probing in tlv tangled wreckage of the . school found that elaborate preparation l.-d been made for wrecking th; building. The basement was criss-crossec' with a network of wires which wert connected to more than 500 pound of dynamite scattered in varioiu places. Search of the ruins war interrupted for a time while unes-ploded dynamite was removed State police said Kehoe apparently had carried the dynamite into thi school building during the nigh; and arranged iiis wiring. He was seen to drive up In hi? automobile in front of the building soon after classes convened, Completing his plans, he is believeo to have run a wire from his automobile, ' in which other explosive? were stored, to the charges in the basement. Rifle shells, several of which were found near the battered automobile, served as fuses. PRINCIPAL KILLED At this point, witnesses said, Huyck ran from the building and grappled with the farmer who set off the explosive by firing a rifle into the rear of his automobile. The detonation which killed both Kehoe and Huyck, set off the dyn amite placed in the basement, burying the teachers and pupils under tons of debris. Panic 'ensued among the school children with the first rumble of the blast outside. Terrified, both teachers and pupils rushed to the exits, only to b caught beneath the falling walls and celling loosened by the second blast.
