City Observes Day of Homage to War Dead (Continued from Page One.) zo L. Baker, principal speaker for the 11 o'clock services, warned that before another Memorial day arrives, Europe's democracies may have been wiped out by the totalitarian Hitler. "America was founded on the principle that government was made for man. not man for government," he stated. "Soon she may find herself quite alone in the advocacy of this daring thesis. If Hitler wins in Europe he will soon be joined by other aggressive totalitarian states whose one obsession will be to diminish the power and influence of the United States, the last bulwark of democracy. -A Hitlerized Europe and a Nipponized Asia may then seek extinction of the last haven of 'government of the people, by the people, and for the people.'" In preparation for the day when America "may stand at bay surrounded by the wolves of totalitarianism," Mr. Baker advocated an "intelligent and scientific armament program, divorced from hysteria and politics. "We have been altogether too deaf to the pleas of such men as 'Billy Mitchell and Colonel Lindbergh." he said. "We have been too bound with army and navy red tape and governmental bureaucracy. We are the most pro-v gressive and efficient nation in the world industrially, but perhaps the most Inefficient and backward militarily. We must cut loose from the smug aristocracy that now runs much of our armed forces, and turn the job over to our industrialists free to act, not in a mere advisory capacity. If Knudsen and Stetti-nius must go through cabinet officers and governmental bureaus in their newly assigned task, then the President's action this week is only an idle gesture." "In the vast program that faces America in preparing for critical days ahead, she must not be hampered by sitdown strikers, slowdown strikers, or by any other form of labor strife," declared Mr. Baker. "Both capital and labor, and ' the American people as a whole, must be prepared to render sacrificial service just as if they were inducted into the armed forces of the nation." The speaker said the crisis in Europe is bringing one great good to America "an awakening to the dangers of subversive forces in our midst. It took fifth column treachery in Norway, Holland, Poland and Czechoslovakia to jar us out of our complacency here," he said. "It may be that now we will get rid of Harry Bridges and -hundreds of others who have sought only to embroil America in Europe's class war. We may now get the communists out of paid government jobs and off relief rolls. We may now get a purge of such communistic-infiltrated organizations as "The League for Peace and Democracy,' "The Workers' Alliance, 'The American Youth Congress. and other such groups. If America alone must bear the banners of justice, freedom and democracy, amidst the blackout of a totalitarian world, she must be sure that her banners are pure white, not streaked and stained with other ideologies." he said in concluding his talk. An organ prelude by Mrs. Howard L. Raymer began the program in the auditorium. After color presentation by all organizations present, the Rev. J. W. Hill gave the invocation. Mayor Floyd H. Barry spoke briefly, after which Roy Adrianson sang a solo and a roll call of deceased members of veterans organizations was read. After roll call taps sounded over the auditorium. A solo by Mrs. William H. Willson, Jr., followed, and then Mayor Barry presented the Gold Star Mothers. The Elks quartet sang "God Bless America," by Irving Berlin: Chaplain Floyd Trombley pronounced the benediction, and Mrs. Raymer concluded the program with an organ postlude. Today a number of local members A ! i nun i Listen m Bud Shaver, The Silver Star Sports Reporter, Mo IntrucSt in Crossing Crash Henry B. Shay, 60, Struck by Mercury Train, to Be Buried Saturday. WAS VETERAN ' EMPLOYE No inquest will be held into the death of Henry Bertram Shay, 60, of 30 Riverside drive, Clark Equipment Co. millwright superintendent, who was instantly killed Wednesday afternoon when he drove onto the New York Central tracks, at Twenty-Fourth street, in front of the eastbound Mercury train. Dr. Willard N. Putman, coroner, decided that an inquest was not necessary. Since the red flasher lights at the crossing were working, Dr. Putman concluded that Mr. Shay either failed to note the approach of the train or misjudged its speed. The Mercury was traveling between 75 and 80 miles an hour. On Way to Cash Check Mr. Shay was the first Battle Creek man hired by the company when the plant opened 18 years ago. He drew his salary check shortly before noon and about 12:40 p. m. left for a downtown bank, heading northward in Twenty-Fourth street after leaving the company parking lot. The crack passenger train, due at the local station at 12:46, struck his car squarely in the left side and lifted it off the ground. Impaled on the front of the locomotive, the car hung there fo rabout 50 yards, then slid down onto the tracks, and then was pushed about 1,200 yards on the front of the locomotive. Scatters Wreckage The front of the locomotive smashed half way through the automobile, scattering parts of the motor over a wide area. One tire was thrown about 50 feet down into Lafayette street which parallels the Mr. Shay was killed Instantly. Pinned in the wreckage, he was crushed and torn. Blood spattered on the front of the locomotive and the front of the car. The crossing accident was the first one in the local community since April 11 when Mrs. Stella Stevens, 54, of 298 Parish, was killed at the East Fountain street crossing of the Grand Trunk. Mrs. Stevens was a passenger in a car driven by Lester Lin, 64. for whom she kept house. Lin apparently became confused while trying to turn into River street and drove down the tracks just as a freight train came along. Train Delayed An Hour The locomotive was the newest of half a dozen similar engines which pull both sections of the Mercury, three sections of the Twentieth Century Limited, and the Commodore Vanderbilt, all New York Central trains. It had only made three runs previous to the crash. It was slightly damaged a left brake rod near the front was badly bent and gravel was thrown up into its interior mechanism. It continued on to Detroit, however, arriving more than an hour behind schedule. Two of the Mercury crew are from Jackson, Glen Chaplin, the engineer, and E. L. McVay, the foreman and the third, Conductor F. J. Kline, is from Detroit. Funeral services will be conducted at 2 p. m. Saturday from Hebble's chapel. Burial will be in Memorial park. Mr. Shay leaves his wife, Elizabeth, two sons and a daughter, two brothers and a sister, and three grandchildren. His sons are John H. Shay, 245 Grove, and Burton K. Shay, 14 Lakeview avenue. Both work for the Coca-Cola Bottling Co. here, John as a salesman and Burton as supervisor of the sales department. , His daughter, Arleita, 16, is a student at Central high school. His grandchildren are Patricia, five-year-old daughter of Burton, and Jacqueline and John Jr., two-month-old twins of John. His brothers are Fred of Kalamazoo and Albert, who lives near Coldwater. His sister is Mrs. Nellie Shank of Coldwater. Mr. Shay was born in Coldwater July 6, 1879. He was married July 25, 1904, in Ohio, and came to Battle Creek the same year. He lived here ever since, 18 years at the Riverside drive address. of veterans' groups were in Grand Rapids - visiting the Michigan Soldiers' home, where all commanders of state departments of veterans' organizations and Governor Dickinson were official guests.

His body was badly crushed in the wreckage. An Enquirer and News photographer took this picture a few minutes after the train had stopped, near Twelfth street, about three quarters of a mile from the scene of the accident. Nearby, is the Johnson Automatic Sealer plant. Mr. Shay's body had just been removed and the train was being held up until the automobile wreckage could be removed. The automobile motor was found about 500 yards from Twenty-Fourth street. Refugees from Battle Zone Give Tragic Picture of War BY HERBERT KING , PARIS (U R) An old woman, her shoulders bent with fatigue, sat under the train shed weeping silently. Soldiers had forced her to leave her village near the front when German airplanes rained bombs on troops moving into battle. She escaped and went back. She found her home wrecked and her husband dead. Soldiers found her trying to build a coffin. She wanted to give her husband a decent burial, but the soldiers ordered her to join the refugees streaming toward Paris. "I have nothing more to live for," she told the soldiers. "It does not matter now if I die." But here she is, with no home, no relatives to whom to turn. Her story was only one of countless tragedies among a population engulfed in the war. Old men, women and children crowd every railroad station in Paris. There might have been more of them, but according to reports here, nine refugee trains had been bombed or machine-gunned in the past few days. ; The refugees were met by throngs of French Boy Scouts who immediately took charge of their baggage and escorted them to buffet booths where children were given milk; adults, hot chocolate, bread and boiled potatoes. At one of these booths I met two girls from Boston, Rosemary and Esther Forbes. BIRTHS Born to Mr. ahd Mrs. Donald Wales of 206 Cherry, twin daughters, one weighing four pounds and six ounces, at 8:09. p. m., and the other weighing four pounds and 15 ounces, at 8:22 p. m.

Amos Bogart will be in charge. f& mm TASTQ" to :M T. tL DaSy. Was Left of an Automobile sr. -irr" iM "This is only the beginning of what they will need," Rosemary said. ' "I've written my relative, Mrs. Frederick Winthrop of Boston, to do what she can because you can see these men and women have only the clothes on their backs. They have incredible stories of their trips on trains, in cars and on foot into Paris. It's heartrending to hear them tell their stories so simply and so helplessly, and with no hatred since the horror does not seem to have reached them yet. So far, their's is just physical suffering. We Americans just must do something." . Just then another line of refugees came in. Among them were two elderly cousins, Maurice Pan-tin, 71, and Jules Pantin, 79. Maurice was weeping, but Jules said it was only from fatigue and lack of food. Showing me his military papers, Maurice said: "I was in the last war. I saw my house wrecked in '14 in the Ardennes (forest) and now it is wrecked again. Forty-four German planes flew over my house. I saw one British flier who shot down three German planes by himself and then his plane was hit and he had to hop out in a parachute. You can bet we saved his life. He was not badly hurt, but he hated to lose his plane. I wanted to stay and help the Red Cross, but the soldiers insisted I must leave the ruins of my native village. So I came to Paris with my cousin. We walked all the way." AT COMMUNITY HOSPITAL Medical patients admitted to Community hospital Wednesday were George William Bernia, 4, son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard F.

MICHIGAN HONORS DEAD . LANSING VP) A rattle of firing squads and the muted tones of Taps will sound today from end to end of Michigan, a tribute to the 83,000 Michigan men who marched away to the Civil war and the handful of 96 G. A. R. survivors. Few of the survivors are sufficiently strong to participate actively in today's Memorial day ceremonies. Younger persons,- men of the American Legion, the United Spanish War Veterans, and auxiliary units of patriotic organizations are carrying on, to decorate with flags and flowers the graves of Michigan's war dead. In the capital city one Civil war veteran survives. He is James A. Hamilton, 92, who has been chosen honorary marshal of Memorial day exercises and a parade. He was only 13 years old when he volunteered for military service. Governor Dickinson and the state commanders of veterans organizations were chosen to preside at memorial services at the Michigan Soldiers home in Grand Rapids. There the traditional military salute to the dead will be given with rifles and bugles at the graves of some 3,000 veterans of the wars. Headquarters of the Grand Army of the Republic in Lansing says 31 posts of Civil war veterans still exist in Michigan, in each of which a few veterans bravely gather for patriotic gatherings.
