S EARCH for the "peg leg" bandit and his two companions, who hold up and robbed a party of motorists near Monolith on the Te- hachapl highway Saturday morning, today centered in Bakersfleld'and vicinity following report that men answering to the description of the highwaymen, with a car similar to that described hy the holdup victims, were seen camping on the eastern outskirts of Bakersfield the day following the daring robbery. Fled Toward Desert Although the bandits were reported to have fled toward Mojave after robbing and beating their victims and firing on a party of Baiters- field motorists who arrived while the robbery was In progress, Investigators believe the gunmen may have doubled back toward Bakersfield and the San Joaquin valley. Undersheflff Rea Pyle said credence was given the theory because ono of the men seen camping In the open country at the east end of Mount Vornon street was described as having a wooden leg. Deputy sheriffs are checking fingerprints found at tho scene of the robbery with thoso found on cans and other articles left by the men at their Bakersflold camp, seeking to learn definitely whether tho campers were Indeed the bandits.

Sept. 8.—With a warning that "the fabric of peace has been worn perilously thin," a challenge, went out from Secretary Hull to other nations today to avoid war. Openly critical of other statesmen who, ho charged, have failed to check present day "warlike tendencies," tho secretary of state called for n- redoubling of efforts toward the, preservation of peace and an early return to "sane perspectives." As an alternative, he pictured the possibility of a new general war which "would set loose forces beyond control—forces which might easily bring about a virtual destruction of modern political thought, with all Us achievement*!, and pos- sibllty a veritable shattering of civilization." Hull chose the third world power conference, attended by representatives of all tho principal nations, as the forum for what his aides called his most outspoken entreaty for peace.
