Gross twice before. has escaped from the Colorado prison. -He had been-regarded as a dange-rona character and had been closely guarded. Ho was sent, to prison for life for beating to death Max Newman, Pueblo jeweler, iu 1914. He first escaped by biding in a swill barrel. His second escape was in a bread wagon. After this escape, ho was recaptured after an accident.' In Detroit, an automobile lie was In struck a street car.

Where before he had been hounded by guards,' they said, this time he would be given a chance to accomplish something constructive. Accordingly he was given a chance to do some kind of business. He chose B lunchroom venture within the prison. This prospered' and Gross branched out, taking over the radio business in the prison and taking charge of the curio shop.

The budget adopted Tuesday car- 1 rlea the teacher salary list as contrac ted in April of this year, when 15 pel cent reduction was made in tho scale. Under tho budget system used by tbe board, 59 distinct Items are given consideration. For two of these, school elections and pensions, no appropriations were made last year. Of the remaining 67, there are four Items, payment of bonds,' Interest on bonds, Insurance and taxes, which for comparison purposes are unchangeable. There are thus 53 variable items. Under the budget, 44 of the 63 items have been lowered for the coming year, eight have been raised and one Is unchanged. Range of variation In those- lowered is from $18,000 for classroom teachers to a slight reduction of $10 In one of the lesser supply Items. liange o (those raised Is from $300 In library expense to a $25 raise (or equipment of old buildings.

Hoover Urges generosity to Relief Appeal (As-octalcd PfCM) Washington, Sept. 36.--Appealing to tho American people to support generously private relief agencies, President Hoover today, outlined to welfare and business leaders four salient points In caring for the nation's needy. · j They wore, first, "to sco that no man, woman or child shall go hungry or unsheltered thru tlio approaching winter." Second, "to see that our great benevolent agencies (or character building, (or liospitalization, for caro of children ami all Ihoir vnsl number "f agencies of v o l u n t a r y sollcltlde for tho less fortunate are maintained in full strength." Third, "(o maintain tho bedrock principle ol our liberties by'.thc full, niobilizalioii o( Individual and local resources and responsibilities." Fourth, "that, we maintain the spiritual impulses In our people for generous giving and Eeuorous sen-ice --in the spirit that each Is his broth- 1 er's keeper," The president spoke at tbe white house to several hundred noted figures in American social service and: in- duslrial life. They were meeling in a one-day welfare and relief mobilization conference to rally support behind local community projects for extending alii (o the unfortunate. Twonty-niiio social service- orgauiza- llons have been enlisted. "This Is, I trust," Mr. Hoover told them, "the last winter of this great calamity. Yet despite a dawning hope upon the horizon, Individual need in tlie meantime may be greater than before." He assorted, however, that altho greater d i f f i c u l t y may bo encountered tbls year in obtaining private subscriptions, h was "confident that you will succeed." "Our people," ho said, "are the most generous of all peoples." Praising the previous generous ro- sponscs to local relief societies, tbe president outlined federal relict projects--the $300,000,000 (und, mammoth building programs. Red Cross distribution o( government wheat and cotton and efforts to spread employment. "With those back logs behind: your efforts and those of local authorities," Mr. Hoover asserted, "we must make sure that no American will this win- tor go hungry or cold. "These programs of tho govcrn- Hmont are based upon the continuation · r of your services. They presuppose adequate neighborhood support to your ettorts, which still comprise a largo part of our reliance. They pro- suppose that the thousands of agencies which in normal times carry the load of distress shall function this winter lo their utmost capacity. Let no man believe, because wo have summoned tho power of government to Ibeso ends, that It can replace your efforts." Newton D.
