Before touching off the blasts at the school building, Kehoe dynamited his home, barn, and wagon shed, and the buildings were destroyed by subsequent fire. Indications were that Kehoe had killed his wife and thrown her body into the outbuilding, for the skull was crushed. Governor Appeals for Aid The death toll mounted to WRECKED Sister, Living Here, Blames Fall Years Ago for Demented Man's Act Andrew Kehoe, maniac who dynamited the schoolhouse at Bath, has three sisters living In Battle Creek, one of whom had left this morning for the scene of the tragedy. They are: Mrs. J. L. Rose, 278 East VanBuren; Miss Agnes Kehoe, 31 Harvard; and Miss Margaret Kehoe, of whom the latter Is prostrated and at the home of Mrs. Rose. 'This terrible thing has made us nearly frantic", Mrs. Rose said. "For us it came out of a clear sky, although Andrew has not been the same during the last 15 or 16 years- "About 1010 he suffered a severe fall while attending an electrical school at St. Louis, Mo. He was Bemi-conscious for nearly two months and It seemed as if he never made a proper recovery.

The discovery was made by Boy Cole, a deputy . sheriff. 43 with the discovery of the woman's body and the death in a Lansing hospital of Cleo Clayton, 8, one of the pupils. With the issuance of Governor Green's proclamation, Red Cross workers arrived fom Lansing and St. Johns to map out a campaign of relief for families hardest hit by the disaster. Vengeance of a Maniac A heap of death-laden debris and the smouldering ruins of a homely farm house steod today as the sym-boys of a maniac's vengeance upon society. This village of 300 with death In many of its homes, was bowed In grief. Thirty-seven children who yesterday romped through its streets, and six adults lay still and white in death. The sorrow extend ed out into many homes of the countryside where laughter of children had been stilled. Andrew Kehoe, unpopular, crafty. middle-aged farmer, after he had killed hjs, invalid wife, blasted himself and 41 others, most of them children between the ages of 6 and 12, to death when explosives he had planted wrecked the Bath consolidated district school Wednesday morning. Forty-three others were injured, some of whom may die. Only a whim of fate prevented destruction of the entire village. Thought Taxes too High Because school taxes were "too high" and lie thought the tax burden prevented him from meeting a mortgage on his farm, the demented Kehoe mined the school the pride of the township with dynamite and gunpowder. He installed an elaborate system of electrical wiring and connected It to a time clock. At the appointed hour he drove to the school to watch his plot take Its toll. One section of the building was blown to bits: another escaped. One of the wires became short circuited and the electric spark failed before it completed Its course. The wing of the school containing the third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades was torn to pieces. Another part in which more than 130 pupils were studying escaped, sustaining only severe eddies of the shock. State police removed more than 500 pounds of dynamite and several sacks of gunpowder planted under the spared (Continued on Page 10, Col. 1) troit. That may have been the reason he was so In debt and in danger of losing his place through foreclosure of mortgage. I'm " sure I don't know." Mrs. Rose related that yesterday, when word came of the catastrophe, two sisters of Mrs. Kehoe, residents of Lansing, she said, spent the day in Jackson looking for Mrs. Kehoe in that city. The woman, they had been Informed, was been taken there for treatment in . some hospital. (Continued on Page 10, Col. 8) GOVERNOR GREEN AND WIFE EARLY ON SCENE, ASSISTING IN RELIEF WORK.

' CATHOLIC PAPER DENIES HINTS OF D SCRIM NATION Defends Republican Victor in Baltimore, Md., Mayor-' alty Election. SIGNIFICANT UTTERANCE Declares Vote Result Was Not Indication of Intolerant Attitude. BY MARK SULLIVAN Washington, D. C May 19. The wide dissemination of despatches saying that a democratic candidate for mayor of Baltimore was defeat ed on May 3, because he was a Catholic, has evoked a significant utterance from the Baltimore Cath-olio Review, a weekly paper edited by priests and having a quasi-of:l-cial relationship to the church. This Catholic organ flatly contradicts the despatches. Inasmuch as inferences from the original news were made all over the country, there is importance in repudiation of the charge of discrimination by the organ of the church supposed to be the victim of it. Charge Is Denied The facts about the election were that the republican candidate .iron by about 17,000 over the democratic candidate, under conditions of regis tration and precedent which had indicated a normal democratic victory by about 60,000. Instantly the charge was made that the shift was due to the fact that the democratic candidate was a Catholic while the successful republican candidate wa a Protestant. It is this report that the Baltimore Catholic 'Review denies with. heat. It sayst, .-. "The citizens of Baltimore, catholics and Protestants alike, have been presented before the people of the country as residents of a city in which Intolerance is rampant, and in which a man who is a Catholic has no chance to obtain high political office. This is a slander upon our non-Catholic citizenry. In defense of their good name, above (Continued on Page 7, Col. 5) The List of Dead (By the Associated Press) Bath, Mich., May 19.
