PAGE TWO MIAMI DAILY NEWS, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, .1936 FLOGGING JURY EXTENDS TAMPA CRIMESJNQUIRY Report Expected in 10 Days; Criminal Assault Studied (By A.wialed Pres TAMPA, Jan. 8. Called into special session to investigate a fatal flogging, the Hillsborough county grand jury today let the case rest temporarily while it delved into other crimes. State Attorney J. Rex Farrior said the jury was investigating a criminal assault case and the slaying of two negroes, one a wealthy undertaker. A final report on the flogging, which resulted in the death of Joseph Shoemaker, likely will not be ready before the end of next week, Farrior added. He said additional witnesses would be called within a few days. The state attorney said he expected the jury to recess for the week-end Thursday or Friday, and return to its inquiry into the Shoemaker incident when it reconvenes. Before Christmas the group indicted eight men, six of them suspended Tampa policemen, for second-degree murder in the flogging. Meanwhile, a ninth man, was arrested in connection with the case. With E. L. Poulnot and S. D. Rogers. Shoemaker was seized by a band of masked men near the police station, taken to the woods and tarred and feathered after being beaten. Rogers and Poulnot recovered. Circuit Judge L. L. Parks charged the jury with the investigation of gambling, the conduct of elections here and the report 400 to 500 liquor establishments are operating without a license. WORKERS TO SPEED DRIVE FOR PLEDGES Lumber Company President Approves Sewage riant Tlan Efforts to get the 476 pledges from Fort Lauderdale property owner that they will use the $136,000 sewage disposal service to be financed with PWA funds will be redoubled for the next few days, James D. Camp, chamber of commerce president and its committee chairmon on the work said today. The shortness of time left to comply with the federal administration's requirement is the reason for the increased activity. .The signed pledges are necessary to guarantee the government that a $714.50 a month in revenue necessary for the retirement of the $75.-000 loan will be raised. The government grant on the project amounts to about $61,000. Since a canvass to obtain the necessary signers has been under way. most of the principal property holders in the area to be serv-. iced have signed the pledge and others are promised. One of the recent signers, J. H. Williams, president and general manager of the Gate City Lumber Co, a pioneer of the city and outstanding business man, : who is strongly in favor of the proposed eewage service. "Undoubtedly, it is the proper thing for Fort Lauderdale to get this improvement now, when 45 per cent of the cost of it will come as a gift, than to wait until forced to install It later at the full cost," he said today. "The progressive-ness of the city demands the cooperation of its citizens in insuring the sewage disposal extension." britWjewsIIan german migration Proposal Calls for World Contributions of $49,300,000 By Initfd Press) LONDON, Jan. 8. Leading British Jews are discussing a proposal to attempt to remove all, or at least a majority of Jews from Germany under a four-year plan, the Daily Herald asserted today. The plan would be financed by 'ilO.OOO.OOO ($49,300,000) to be raised from contributions by Jews all over te world, the newspaper reported. Part of the fund would be used, the Daily Herald said, to finance activities of whatever new organization the League of Nations provides for aiding German Jewish refugees, or activities of a Jewish committee if one is named. Norman Rockwell Tells How He Draws Those Post Covers Artist, "Stuck" for Inspiration, Comes to Miami for Rest DR. SILVERN DENTIST Cor. E. Flaicler and First Ave. 18 S. E.

Rirhard L. Watson, whn r,is been with us 4 years, wilt be in charge of the new shop. By FRANCIS P. LOCKE (Daily New Staff Writer) The mother frowns. Her wild-eyed offspring lies across her knee. In one hand she poises a hairbrush, in the other a psychology book. fo probably remember seeing it on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. It is one of Norman Rockwell's most popular Post cover-, in recent years. But did you know it was held out of the magazine for eight months because both the artist and Publisher Lorimer thought it -was no good? Tha, it was run even then only because the Post was short a cover and had to have something to fill the gap? The spanking picture illustrates the familiar contrast between the cieator's opinion of his own work and the opinion of his public. A ew other covers you may recall: The Babbitt family in their Model-T passing the Rolls Royce, with all the shadings of facial expression a family in a Model-T passing a Rolls Royce would display. The kindly old doctor pressing his stethoscope to the sick dolly's cl-est. The old tramp roasting two weenies over his miserable fire one for himself and one for his dog. Th little boy with his vision of spring the diaphanously clothed little girl whispering sweet May breezes into his ear. From the fanmail standpoint at least, they are among the best covers Rockwell has ever done. But the artist didn't think any of them were "so hot." This is what he confessed in an interview here last night at the home of his friend. Dean Parma-lee, Miami architect with whom he has roamed the Old World in search of people and art and architectural ideas. And yet, Rockwell admits, when he cut loose from his lighter work an 1 spent a year at painting for painting's sake, he found It a fearful grind and had to give it up. "You see, there are two elements to a magazine cover," he will tell you. "They are the picture and the story. "1 jove to paint pictures, but I also love to tell the story. Let's admit our mother would have been more beautiful if she had been smiling. But who could be smiling when she studied a psychology book and spanks her child?" Of the two elements, the story Is far more important to the public, Rockwell tells you. That is why he may get three fan letters! on the cover he is most proud of an. 330 on one which he considers slapdash art, "People like to see themselves in colors," Rockwell says. "Give them a laugh and a cry in the same picture if possible. Come as close to human nature as you can and people will like your work. That is the gift Will Rogers had." This is no cynical appraisal of the public's heart, the artist hastens to assure. His human nature inspirations are the most genuine and the most satisfying ones he has. His youth and sparkle at 42 are outward proof that this is so. Depression has brought America's sense of humor back to fundamental values, Rockwell says. During the sophisticated age just passed the simpler cover themes began to slip. Now Rockwell notices a marked trend here they are coming tack. "Of course, you can't run the barefoot farmer boy as often as you could 20 years ago, but every now and then Mr. Lorimer orders a regular 'homespun,' and these are a type I like to do." Speaking of fan mail, Rockwell will tell you he gets more letters when he makes a mistake than when he. scores a hit. He was deluged, for instance, when he left the wedding ring .off the finger of the be-bustled 1880 mother bring-ign her child to school. Is it ever hard to think up a "story?" It certainly is'. There are so many good ideas one cannot use. For instance, the Post bans cigarets and liquor from its covers (incidentally Rockwell points to Post and Colliers' multi-million circulation to show that America-outside-New York appreciates a publication which in its whole history has never resorted to the salacious). Politics may be depicted, but you must stay on the fence. Foreign subjects don't "draw." After all, the Post reader is an American. He doesn't know very much about 'foieign countries and rather re-j sents people who talk about them ; and travel in them. For example, the greatest "nat-i ural" Rockwell ever "had was an American Babbitt reading the ; Brooklyn Daily Eagle while mount- j ed on an Egyptian donkey loaded with trappings of Oriental splendor. But Lorimer made him change the setting from Egypt to the Grand) canyon. ! Miami, Incidentally, is not a goodj grouml for Post cover inspirations.! Rockwell says. There are plenty 1 of amusing scenes and situations; here, and human interest races riotously up and down. But Miami; is tropical, and not a part of the: average reader's Americana. j "The America of the Saturday: Evening Post world is still Nevvi : England, with its snowdrifts in ' Sv- till X' v ffU t J- ' it i R 7 I) w.- v ..." v- . - "J- Jf f " .

Funeral arrangements for Hardy Hirman Henderson, 61, who died here yesterday, were . being completed by Fannin funeral home. Fort Lauderdale. Henderson had been a resident of Pompano for 17 years and was a farmer. He was a member of the Pompano Baptist church. Surviving are the widow, Mrs. Florence Henderson, and eight children, Mrs. T J. Prother, West Palm Beach; Mrs. W. D. Carstensen, Miami; Mrs. N. C Willingham, Pompano; Mrs. Hodges, Pompano; Bernice Henderson, Pompano; Annie L. Henderson, Miami, and Jack and W. R. Henderson, Pompano. winter and its apple orchards in May." Rockwell's system for thinking up a cover when he is "stuck" is an unusual one. He always draws a lamp post. "That gives me something con crete to start on. Pretty soon a ; sai'or passes the lamp post, or ' maybe a drunk. The sailor may carry me out to sea, or perhaps the( drunk suggests a Sweet Adeline quartet. Thus one thing leads to If I sat staring at a blank piece of paper, I'd never get; any ideas." Fact is, Rockwell is in Miami now bacause he got "stuck" on a cover idea. He went up into the! attic of his New Rochelle, N. home and drew a barber shop quar- tet. The idea was excellent. But1 the open mouths of the three bar-! bers and their half-shaved custom- j er looked too repellent to print. He changed to a springtime theme. He had another good idea.! As it unfolded itself on paper it; looked worse and worse. i So he came tc Florida for a week off. He got his inspiration in Yen-: ice and he'll soon be back to his cover. Watch for it next spring. !

Attorney Resents Having to Pay Postage On $50,000 Life Threat CHICAGO, Jan. 8. (P) U. S. District Attorney Michael L. Igoe said today he didn't mind the threat against his life so much, but it certainly burned him up when he had to pay two cents to find out about it. He received a letter warning that he would be assassinated unless he paid $50,000, but the writer neglected to stamp it and the letter carrier demanded two cents postage due.
