Single Copy, 3 Gents DEMOCRATS SPLIT OVER LENDING ISSUES Japan Calls Navy Fleet Reservists i TOKYO UP) -- Confident that Central Chinese government receive no more help from Britain to oppose the "new order in East Asia," Japan today stepped up her naval manpower, apparently with an eye on Soviet Russia. The Admirality called naval reservists to active duty while Admiral Mitsumasa Yonai, naval minister, disclosed organization of a Dew squadron which soon will begin "special maneuvers" with the combined Imperial fleet. Neutral naval experts expressed belief that the call to reservists, bringing an estimated 1,500 to the colors, and the fleet reinforcements probably resulted from friction between Japan and Russia over Sakhalin Island oil and coal concessions. New Squadron Yoani briefly informed the Japanese press of the new squadron while en route to graduation exercises at the Naval Cadet School at Etajima. He did not disclose the number nor type of ships in the new squadron. It was supposed the reservists called up were to supply the expansion of regular personnel needed for the new squadron. Japan has 175.000 naval reservists to suppli- ment her more than 100,000 regulars. The naval minister said the squadron would participate in "special wartime maneuvers." Observers expressed surprise in view of the fact that annual Summer maneuvers had been canceled when the war in China started. The .last large-scale exercises were held in 1936. CHUNKING (IP) -- The Central Chinese government has declared its confidence that the British government "will take an attitude consonant with its legal and moral obligations to China, in dealing with the so-called Tientsin local issue. A formal statement issued last night noted that Britain had advised her officials and nationals to "refrain from acts and measures prejudicial to attainment of the Japanese objective" under her agreement with Japan on a basis o; negotiations to settle the Tient- sin dispute. Epidemic Feared SHANGHAI (tP) -- International Settlement authorities expressed fears today that epidemics might result from a breakdown of Shanghai garbage disposal facilities throueh action of the Japanese- dominated Shanghai municipality. The city had no garbage disposal for three days, and authorities regarded the health situation as dangerous. particularly among 4.000.000 refugees from war zones who live in over-crowded houses along steaming alleys of Chinese areas. The Chinese mayor, Fu Siao-En. released H. Rose, chief of the settlement municipal council's health department and a German and Russian employe of the department and promised to release 100 Chin- l esc employes and the department's ^^rarbagc trucks, but failed to do so I Lost In Wilds Medical Association Wins Court Battle WASHINGTON *i -- The American Medical Association won a sweeping victory over the government todav when a federal district court held that the Sherman anti-trust act could not apply to the practice of medicine. Justice James M. Proctor, ruling owl. an indictment in which the Justice Department cliargcd the AMA and fellow defendants retrained the "trade" of Group Health Inc., a cooperative health association in the District of Columbia, said: "3s medical practice a trade within the meaning of Section 3 of the Shmnan Act? In my opinion it is not." Physician's Son Held In Stepmother's Death 8ENTON. Ill UTi -- George W.

GOLDNER SAFE; $2,300 RANSOM PAD) ABDUCTORS JERUSALEM (IP) -- The Rev. Gerould Goldner tossed in fitful sleep -- his first real rest in over a week -- today, no longer the prisoner of a Nomad Arab band. Dr. Jacob Goldner. father of the young Ohio preacher, obtained his son's release yesterday for "somewhere between 200 and 500 pounds -- between $1,380 and $2,300. He oisclcsed today that the ransom hac been paid directly to the kidnapers and not through intermediaries. Young Goldner knew nothing of the frantic efforts to secure his release or of the attention directed to the bizarre kidnaping in the Moab Hills. With his captors he had lived the life of a Bedouin, changing headquarters each morning and evening for the kidnapers feared their prize might be "hijacked" by a stronger band. Although exhausted and suffering from illness as a result of eating tribal food. Goldner said on his return to the Holy City last night that his captors "treated me fine- but there was once or twice wnon. things came to a close shave, and I thought the end was near." Both father and son were taken captive by the band, but the father was released to arrange a ransom. The younger Goldner declared last night that "when my father left me I thought I was never going to see him again." The bana prowled through hilly country near Hebron, always on the alert and with their captive under heavy guard, the father related today. When news reached the band that negotiators were anxious to talk terms with them, the rebel leader delegated five men to carry out negotiations but. swore them to secrecy about the location of various hideaways and any other details -except that Goldner was well.

Utah f -- Imprisoned five days in a box-car without wa- t«r or food, a man who gave his name as Clarence Thompson ol Cortland, N. Y., is recoverinf. "I wa? looking for work and was hitchhiking in North Dakota," he said. "Two men picked me up in their car. I don't know how I got hi the boxcar." Officers opened the car by CIO Seeks Union For Tradesmen WASHINGTON (IP) -- John L. Lewis set out today to challenge the dominance of the AFL in its major stronghold -- the building construction industry. The CIO leader announced yesterday establishment of the United Construction Workers Organizing Committee, placed his younger brother, A. D. Lewis at the head of it, and marked out what may become the line of a new battle front in the four-year-old labor war. The new organization puts Lewis in direct rivalry with many of the AFL leaders who sat on the executive council three years ago when the federation high command suspended and later expellert Lewis and his allies for forming the CIO. A. D. "Denny" Lewis will undertake organization of building tradesmen after years of working in the coal industry. He spent 18 years in the coal mines, the same place John L. got his first contact with organized labor. The younger Lewis left the mines to become assistant director and later director of mines and minerals of the State of Illinois. i Lewis came to Washington several years ago to become an officer in the U. S. employment service when James J. Davis was secretary of labor. He left that post to become assistant to his brother as president of the United Mine Workers. He bears a marked resemblance to John L. and has been long close to him directing the affair? of the Mine Workers Union. John L. Lewis made it clear in his announcement yesterday that he hoped to capture a sizable portion of the building trades workers by boosting the .wages of the unorganized workers and by promising to eliminate jurisdictional disputes which have proved troublesome to the AFL and the Industry. His aides said, too, that there would be no wage scale war. The CIO organization will demand the prevailing wage rates which run as high as $2 an hour for some trades. Lewis said "thousands of requests" had been received for CIO to invade the building construction field. "These requests have comt to us," he said, "because the construction workers desire a modern form of organization which will bring the benefits of collective bargaining to all workers, will eliminate jurisdictional disputes and will improve their wages and working conditions." New Discovery May Disclose Burials Of "The Lost Colony GAINESVILLE, G». (IP) --Dr. H. J. Pearce, president of Bre- nau College, asserted today discovery and translation of 13 stone slabs apparently recording the burial cf 64 members of the famed "lost cofemy" of Rcanoke Island may go far in solving what he called "Mystery No. 1 of American history." The educator and his son, Dr. H. J. Pearce, Jr., a historian at Emory University in Atlanta, announced yesterday the finding- of the stones on the Saluda river near Greenville, S. C., which purport to unfold the tragedy baffling: colonists settled at Sir Walter Raleigh's behest in 1587. The educators emphasized that no claims were being made as to the authenticity of stones at present. "They are still under investigation," they said. "But if the stones do prove to be genuine, Dr. Pearce declared, "some commonly accepted facts in American history must be discarded." o/LIFE By The Associated Press) Bu.-y Bees MT. STERLING. Ky. -- Beekeeper A. F. Shields placed crates containing 75 pounds of honey in his garage, intending to return late in the day after swarming bees had departed and truck the honey away. But when he went back to the garage the honey was gone. The bees had carried every drop back to the hives. Papa's A Daddy WAYNESBORO.

KL Wriglcy yes- j terday watched his Chicago Cubs play for the first time -- a double header with Brooklyn. The Cubs lost both games. WPA OFFICIALS PREDICT STATE RELIEF SLASH WASHINGTON '(IP) -- WPA officials said today that a study of the new relief act in operation indicated that some states may curtail projects materially after the first of the year, when they become responsible for 25 per cent of the cost. "We are getting some pretty loud squawks." officials said, "against the provision that state WPA officers may require varying amounts of local contributions to a project, as long as the state total amounts to 25 per cent of the outlay for all projects within its borders when the program is completed." Sources of this information preferred to remain anonymous pending further experience with the new law, but they appeared convinced that next year fewer communities would contribute more v than the 25 per cent required of the state. "It well may be," they said, "that the minimum contribution will become the maximum." These developments seemed to WPA officials to refute earlier beliefs that localities with sufficient resources might be willing to contribute much more than 25 per cent and permit a distressed neighbor to obtain WPA projects on "token j sponsorship." | The later would include contribu-1 tions of a city truck, a barrel o f j cement or the services of a city engineer. The small and the large contributions would be balanced against each other for a grand total of 25 per cent on all projects within the state. Officials said also that the new building restrictions appeared likely to hamper WPA construction of larger schools." city halls, armories and similar projects. Velma West Captured By Texas Police DALLAS (IP) -- Velma West's "one little adventure" after 11 years imprisonment for the hammer murder of her husband ended abruptly here with her unspectacular arrest on a city street. The emaciated blonde's adventure had extended 36 days -- 36 days of freedom from the Ohio Women's reformatory from which she led three other prisoners in a bold escape one rainy night in June. Velma and Mary Ellen Richards, another of the Ohio fugitives, were arrested quietly in the market section last night, not far from where they had worked in a tavern. Detectives C. O. Buchanan, J. E. Daniel and Ben Samford walked up to the women and took them off to jail. The detectives had had information the fugitives were here. They did not elaborate on their information but Velma told a reporter the officers related someone had recognized her from newspaper pictures. The capture ended a nation-wide search for the quartet who vanished into the rainy night of June 19. Velma said they used a set of keys to open the gates but did not say how they were obtained. The women decided to hitch-hike to Dallas but Florence Sheline quit enroute. The others came here three weeks ago but the captured pair said Virginia Brawdy had left them since. Eleven years of prison life have taken their toll on the West woman. | She now is frail, no longer the vivacious, pretty wife of 21 who became enraged at her husband because he refused to attend a bridge party and beat him to death with a claw hammer. . The husband, Thomas Edward West, 26. was killed at Perry, Ohio, in December. 1927. Velma received a life sentence. Only Monday, Superintendent i Marguerite Reilley of the reforma-j tory at Marysville said "She (Velma) can't keep hidden forever" and scorned the idea she would return of her own accord, although; the fugitive slayer left a note explaining: "I must have one little adventure in this dull life of mine." and assured the superintendent "if this should in any way cause you trouble j I shall come back immediately." j Conscience-Ridden Edward C. Ray, 30, (above) bitch-hiked back to Mineola, N. Y., from Mexico City, by way of Laredo, Tex., to give himself up on charges of stealing S700 from a payroll. Ray's conscience bothered him, he said, so he thumbed his way back when Nassau County officials didn't have funds to return him.

TREASURY REPORT WASHINGTON wiv--The position cf the treasury on July 24: Receipts. $12.648.359.09; expenditures. $36.342.603.04; net balance, $2,650.- 424.008.1T. HAILEYVILLE, Okla. (IP) --Resident of this small community were worried today lest further cave-ins plunge a part of the residential district into an abandoned, water- filled coal mine on which the town virtually has been floating for 20 years. Cause of their worry was a large, gaping hole in Riley street, just a block from the main business district. A 25 by 40 foot strip of pavement collapsed with a roar yesterday and dropped five feet below the surface. Several hours later the First Presbyterian church, which fronts on the street at that spot, had settled a foot and the steps were sloping street-ward. Old timers shook their heads and recalled the disastrous collapses of 1925. which they said started in much the same way. Then, sections of the ground began dropping and before the soil had stopped its shifting the S59.000 Y. M. C. A. building. City Hall and adjoining structures were wrecks. The mine which honeycombs the town was started about 30 years ago. After 10 years or so the five- foot vein was worked out and the mine abandoned. Eighteen hundred persons were left to live on the dome of the mine. However, in the face of this new threat, the populace was trying to wear a brave face. Andrew Omisky. 23-year-old barber and mayor, got together with the townsfolk and decided on the only remedy they knew -- filling up the* holes with rock.

The most acute water shortage occurred in Nassau where Mayor Christopher Ogden said about 900 residents were without water for six hours yesterday. He said sfec -wells, supplying the village's 750,000 gallon tank, went dry. The mayor and volunteer workers, however, improvised a temporary chlorinating system and pumped water from nearby Valatie Kill I into the village's pipe lines to relieve the situation. In Schenectady, where water also is drawn from deep ·wells, residents were advised to "go easy on the water." Chief of Police Joseph A. . Peters said he would enforce a provision that gardens and lawns be watered only two hours in the morning and two at night. Lake George village officials reported one of the community's two reservoirs nearly dry while the Albany weather bureau said the rainfall deficiency for July had been boosted to 2.08 inches. Meanwhile, fire fighters fought scores of blazes throughout the I state. Kinne F. Williams, state j superintendent of forest fire control, said 19 new fires 'broke out ! yesterday but added that "none amount to anything."

Nazis Intensify Scrap Iron Collection Drive BERLIN oP) -- Nazis intensified their efforts to overcome a shortage of raw materials and labor in Germany's gigantic rearmament and j economic self sufficiency program ' today with a new drive to collect j i scrap iron and by training women ' to take over men's jobs. To help fill the great demand for iron ore and scrap iron. Field Marshal Hermann Wilhclm Goering, as director of the four year self sufficiency plan, last year start- re a "scrap iron collection cam- I paign" which was reported to have !. brought in approximately 500.000 tons of scrap metal. During this campaign iron fences were torn down and every disposable piece of iron and steel was turned over to Storm Troopers who did the collecting. But this apparently was only a drop in the bucket. Newspapers today carried another Nazi party appeal, setting Aug. 1 as the dale for beginning of a new scrap iron collection campaign in Greater Berlin. On the other hand, a group of southerners headed by Senator- Russell (D-Ga) promised a stionf fight against the proposal because it would destroy a provision.
