LEONOR LOREE AGAIN A FOE OF ; PENNSYLYANM Colorful Figure of Rail roBd History Buys in oh , New York Central NSWERS New York. Jan. 26. (AP)—The Pennsylvania Railroad company, whlcli at times has foimd the dynamic Leonor P. Loree on its side. Vr .d then-against it, now finds the 75-year-old r a U r o a d patriarch aligned against it again. Through his purchase of a 10 per cent interest In New York Central,; Loree becomes a powerful ally of Pennsylvania's principal competitor. The purchase was made through Loree's company the Delaware & Hudsoh. In the past Loree has fought the Central Just as vigorously as he has ;the Pennsylvania. At times, the two large roads have Joined hands to head him off, particularly on his plan for a fifth trunk \ line .system between New York and Chicago and his proposal to carry out the dream ; of E. H. Harriman In constructing : a 283-mllc .short line Unking Pitts• burgh iy a qluck and rapid route to Kn.ston. Pa., which would bring the rich coal and steel producing center of ;Penn.sylvanla several hours nearer- the. Atlantic seaboard. But friendship has won a notable victory- for Central when other efforts failed. . Lorep, ^hc. fighter, could not be moved Hhrough force, suasion or ca- Jolorle. but it happens that the Delaware'& Hudson head, who ap- pen red to hold most railroad presidents In disdain because they had not passed as he did through the roiigh and ready pioneering days of American' railroading, holds a profound respect and esteem for Frederick B.. Williamson, the new president of the Central, who. like himself, worked up from a humble position. ; i Williamson became president of the Central Januarj' 1, 1932. Wheii. in the recent interstate commerce commission consolidation decree Delaware & Hudson was left as a sort of orphan in the grouping of the -Xountry's eastern roads into four principal systems, Loree and his Delaware & Hudson were left free and dear of any alliance with Pennsylvania. New York Central, Baltimore & Ohio, or Van Swearingen systems although it was desired covetously by. the large trunk line -systems. Although small, tlie road Ls an Important route having valuable connections. Tlie purchase of Central stock by Delaware & Hudson Is, expected therefore, to determined opposition from tl^e other trunk line" . carrlens. ; But Loree is said by his friends to have placed himself in the snug position that he usually seems able to reach. ; CAMUEL SL.\TER built the first "-^ cotton mill in America at PAWTUCKET.

(AP)—If Jay Bozeman, the rapid-fire billiard artist from ValleJo. Cal.. doesn't lose another match soon, he's likely to wnke up some morning with his prize mustache stolen. When Bozeman arrived In Chicago for the start of the world's three-ouslilon billiard championship drive 10 days ago. his rivals noticed a mu.stache of the midget, shoe string variety adorning his upper Up. "As long as I have tills mu.stache, I'm going to be in the running for that title and the dough that goes with it." Bozeman replied to their quips. "This mustache Is going to bring me luck." The mustache was stlU, there today and so was Bozeman. He led the field in the race for the title with a mark of four victories sgalnst one setback. He was certain to have at least a share In the lead after today, too. as he was Idle while his closest rival. Welker CocU- ran of HoUywood. 'faced the dangerous Clarence Jackson of Detroit in the big match tonight. Cochran's record was three victories and one defeat. Bozeman soared into the undisputed lead yesterday as he defeated Tiff Denton. Kansas City veteran. 50 to 29 in 37 innings and Cocliran was turned back, 50 to 35 in 48 innings by Frank Scoville of Buffalo. Augie Kieckliefer's chances to retain his crown faded last night as he suffered his second reverse In five matches, falling before Otto Reiselt of Philadelphia, 50 to 46 In 62 innings.

What! No Rowing? V^RASS materialism, or shall we ^ call it dour de-emphasis, has swept-the slim racing shells from the river. Poughkeepsie will be juKt another Hudson harbor June 2C. The broad-ba|cked, mighty- muscledj heroes ol| other years, shooting their slim shells along under- the great bridge, will not be there. • , You may remember the scream that;went up concerning football overemphasis . for several years befoije the 1932 grid season. Talk of professionalism and proselyt­ ing, Iruge gates, and all that. ».f » • Evil for Good W ELL, it seems we had a depression. Last year the old footljall gate jiist wasn't what she used to be. Admission prices wfere redu'oed in many quarters, butl the fans stayed away in flocks. Hero is the result. Old Man River will bear, no colorful burden as hs rolKs past Poughkeepsie •in an otherwise perfect June. The liist pure college sport has been martyred becaus.e the game they branded unclean has not earned chougii dirty money to maintain rowing iii the-style to which it had become ac-customed. A couple oC well, wells! R The S.tory of Stanford OMAXCE danced along tllie sun set-.>;hii"snorIng waters m that June day at Poughkeepsie j las the strong back;, bent in rhyth!ni|c beat and those colorful galleys glided along.' I There was the storied rivalry of the Glendons, EbrighlS, Ten Eycks, Courtneys and other vaunted coaches._ Not this year! ; | Then there was the day in 1915 wheh a Uiandful of willful men frem Stanford appeared mysterl- ou.'jly.' There was no college fund to.dofray their expenses. How they managed to cross the country never has been. told. They put tlieir last dimes on, the line to pay the^freight on tKeir shell and buritmed their way AS best they could. . • They had no eoaich, with meg.i' pliViie to sJioul'instructioofi !rom a launch as they stroked their shell up "and down the Hudson, j Their equipment, besides the shell, was eight sets of trunks and ah awful lot of nerve. The river currents iijeant nothing to them. They had never participated in four-mile races. - • » « Just Came to Row rriHOSB Stanford boys of 1915 •*• seemed to me to typify a spirit of splendid sportsmanship. Off the records, they didn't have a chance. Highly-trained eastern crews had been so well prepared for the r^ce that the coxswains knew every stroke in the mile. What they knew about Tour-mile racing, these stalwarts learned as they went along. Their only system was to keep up with the qthers and them when the pinch came. Passing the two-mile flags they were going strong. ; Over the third mile they kept gaining on the leaders. As they pushed their fragile shell under the railroad bridge, at the three-mile mark, they had passed all the others but Cornell. In that last grueling mile, the raw youths from the Pacific gained, beat after beat, on proud. Cprnall The tiring Ithoca crew just managed to keep a shade in front as the two sliells darted across the finish line. • « • Still in the Race! T^HE Stanford boys didn't icnow the race was over. Increasing the number of strokes to the minute, they kept on. gaining speed after the four miles were done, while a Cornell crew drooped and sagged over the oars. Tliey might have drivci that little boat right up to Pier 9, New York City, if a motor launch hadn't raced out and headed them off." , To get back home they had to sell their shell, but that paid the fare of only a few of i the gallant band. 1 The others remained in Poughkeepsie washing dishes until they could nurse enough coin together to make the trip. Croat stories have been real at CHANCE FOR MELTON victory Tonight Wonid Give Him Claim to State Champipnship The WTCstling-reputation of Eggs Melton may be in Une for a boost tonight when the cUmbs into the ring local matnian 0 oppose Orval Cox in the main event of thfe wrestling show at M. W. A. hall. Promoter Mike Chacoma said today that Cox has long t claimed the right to the title of ihlddlewelght charmpion of Kansas and if Melton can win two decisions of the referee his claim should be as effective as Cox's at present, pox Is rated around the top of the many wrestlers of Kansas regardless of weight. A, 45-minute match between the Predonlan and the idlan last Thursr day night resulted ih a hung jury. Neither, gained a falllln the^tlme al-: lowed and Promoteri Chacoma Immediately engaged them for. another show tonight with n) time limit-being set to Interrupt play. Cox was in to^m today and dropped into the Register office this mdmihg to make known his presence.- He stated he Just wanted to. as.sure the fans that, he Would be here tonight, fit as'a fiddle. Tonight's match will be to a finish, two faUs out of three In the amount of time required to decide It; Another feature event on the card is the one-fall, no-tlme-llmlt contest between local John Neal and one, Guy (Bull) Henry, the bellowing bovine from 'Beaumont and points south. Neal 'S: work Is history here and Henry aroused considerable Interest last week by his an;lcs before mentioned. Henry will concede a bit of weight to Neal—but what are a few pouids of flesh and hone when a couph of cow-hided artists of the canvass get together? The first preliminary Is schedilled to get under way at 8:15. OUTFIELD FOR LINDSTROiVt Pittsburgh Player Will Avoid Dying Young That Way. Chicago. Jan. 26. (AP)—It's ! all right with Freddie LIndstrom if they keep him chasing baseballs in the outfield from now on. Dunns a fanning bee In a loop gjTnnasium where LIndstrom Is getting ready for 1933.and Pittsburgh, he was asked If he'd rather play third base as he once did for the Giants or patrol the outfield. "Give me the outfield every time, Freddie replied with a wide grin. "It's better and cleaner work. You don't run down so soon. 'When you see a fellow walking along with stooped shoulders and a worried look, you can pick him out. He's an ex-third baseman who spent his baseball career chasing after bunts that weren't bunts. "Nope, not for mc. Give me the outfield. everj- time." MRJjfARLENEI BANDITS FLEE UNDER FIRE Capaldo Rlan " Shoots as Robbers Escape ii Aatpmobile. Pittsburg. Kas.. Jan. 26.

(AP)—Mothers in BrookljTi's Stuyi'esant Heights kept frightened eyes on their babies today for fear a killer with a twisted brain might slay them as he did 6-year-old Helen Sterler. Helen's body was found in a dark coal bin last night. The clothesline that strangled her was still aroimd hei; fteck. A half eaten piece of penny candy lay oh the floor. Police said a degenerate coaxed her Into the tenement house cellar, mistreated and killed her, and then crept away unnoticed. Only a few hours before, Helen had been seen at play in the crowded street outside. Her mother had given her a penny and she was munching peppermint drops she bought with It. Police, ransacking the neighborhood for clues, were told she entered a variety store a little later and bought for a few pennies a papier mache toy showing "Paris views." Detectives believed the killer had given her this money then waited outside the store for her. When she failed to return home, her father, LouLs, an unemployed house painter, told police, and they started searching cellars. When they called Sterler into the dark place where the body laj', he stood silent for several moments, then scrieamed: "My baby—she was just a baby. You police—If you don't find that man. I will." A muttering crowd gathered outside. At home the child's mother fainted when she heard the news. Detectives had a theory it was .someone from the Immediate neighborhood who committed the act. Such was the case with little Florence McDowell, 5, who was found slain In a ba.seinent not far away on Februarj' 3, 1932. Police said a ne­ gro, Robert Smalls, 15 years old, confessed the kllUng. He did It, he -said, becaase she "snitched" on him when he played truant from school. HARV.\RD MEN BACK TO EARTH Luxuries Must Go for Athletes Most Pampered in Sportdom. Cambridge, Mass.. Jan. 26. (AP)— Most of the comforts and luxuries that made Harvard athletes one of the most pampered groups In intercollegiate sport were wiped out by Athletic Dhrector William J. Bingham while he was overcoming a $316,000 football shrinkage and balancing his 1932-33 sports budget. To do so Bingham had to chop $210,000 off the cost of running the Harvard spprts program, which has been reduced from $886,000 to $676,7 000. •Here are some of his economy measures: Such frills as private cars and diners, Pullmans, taxi-service, porters and police escorts have been- eliminated from Harvard traveling and from now on all Crimson sports! teams, even the varsity (football squad will ride In day coaches. To save $11,000 on equipment. Bingham has ruled out new shells and oars for the varsity crew, new tackling; or blocking dummies for the football teams, new vaulting poles. Javelins and weights for the track team and new uniforms for the baseball and hockey teams. Most minor teams will be: forced to supply their own uniforms and equipment.

"Unnecessary help," he said in concluding his message, "should bs eliminated, duplicate services consolidated and general overhead expense accounts cut down.

A PANACEA EVOLVED Newspaper Presents Plan Roosevelt May Advocate for Recovery New York, Jan. 26. CAP)—The World-Telegrahi in a copyrighted story today qujsted Dr. Rexford Guy Tugwell, one\ of President-elect Roosevelt's economic adylsors, in.the outline of a 7-polnt national program which the paper said would "very likely form the framework of the incoming administration's restorative policies." The Tugwell plan, as set forth In the story follows: 1. Drastically higher income and Inheritance taxes, particularly In the upper brackets. No sales tax. 2. A widespread public works program, possibly entailing 5 billion dollars at the start; direct relief to the indigent unemployed; intense stimulation to semi-pubUc works projects, such : as slum clearance, through the R. F. C. 3. Reduction In Interest and pub- Uc utility rates. 4. Sound currency. No inflation. 5. A'budget balanced as to current expenditures, with repeal of the Eighteenth amendment a faictor In raising revenues. 6. .Restoring the' balance between wholesale prices, especially for agricultural products, and retail prices to consumers. The farm allotment bill, which already has passed the hou.':e. Is expected to accomplish this for the farmer. 7. Rationalizing the Intergovernmental debt settlements^perhaps by remitting the Interest Items In the total sums due—and by basing the debtors capacity to pay upon their ability to transfer goods or monejr in relation to gold reserves and value. Also rationalizing forelsn trade arrangements, such as tariffs, and perhaps seeking .i vast new outlet lor American raw goods and manufactures In Russia.
