Otis Briggs, 27, and William V. Hanken. 29, both of Monticello, la., were the victims. Farmers who were at work in their fields said that the plane, a raonocoupe., was flying low when first sighted. It appeared to be having difficulty clearing a. line of trees .and then suddenly dipped down, narrowly missing a creek. Gaining a little altitude, the ship circled around a pasture as tho its pilot was seeking a landing spot. Before the ship could be -brought down to the ground, the motor went dead and the plane crashed. Bodies of the victims were removed from the wrecked cabin.

POLICE CAPTURE THIEVES Robbery Victim Not Yet Aware Ames police again staged the feat of capturing thieves before the person robbed knew of the robbery, Saturday afternoon. Patrolman Owen Cox, who was cruising about in the police car in the fourth ward, spied a roadster •with Kansas license plates, driven by two youths. The car carried'no spare tire, and the youths appeared rather startled when he drove alongside. He followed them some distance, and finally stopped them to ask for their license certificate. The only paper one boy could produce was his Kansas driver's license. The pair told the officer they were bound for the world's fair in Chicago, but Cox noticed they carried no baggage. He brot them to police headquarters, where Chief W. J. Cure learned after some questioning that the automobile was a rented car, and that the boys had stolen about $125 from a man in Kansas City, Kan. Chief Cure communicated Kansas City police, who located the robbery victim. The man made a search and discovered he had lost the money. Kansas City officers were al- Expect Climax In Ten Days LONDON.

BLAZE DAMAGES CANDl SHOP HERE Building Occupant Is Saved by Fireman Fire of undetermined origin caused considerable damage in th basement of the Ames candy shop 123 Main street, at 12:40 a. m Monday, Smoke filled the entire building and a small portion of the floo above the Twin Star theater was ripped- out, but the flames were confined to the basement. Smoke also filled the Christiansen hard ware store. Frank Phelan, an elderly man who sleeps in the Moose hall over the candy shop, -was guided to safety by Patrolman William Sharp who wore a gas mask. Fumes from an electric ice machine made fighting the blaze extremely difficult and firemen could enter the basement only by wearing masks. Patrolman, Sharp and Patrolman Homer Jones tad just walked past tie building a few minutes before. Standing a short distance down the street, they suddenly heard a dull explosion as the heat generated from the fire forced out a window and clouds of smoke began rolling into the street. Jones ran to the fire station to give the alarm, while Sharp ran back to the store. Firemen from the fourth ward station also responded and off duty firemen were called to work- Three hose lines were laid and the firs,t floor of the candy store was covered with water as the firemen sought to reach the basement with the hose. The candy shop Is owned by Tom Vellman, -who has now suffered his third fire in two years. A candy shop owned by him in Nevada was burned out, and not long afterward his residence on Northwestern avenue was badly damaged by fire.

In Close Touch With Negotiations at Washington HYDE "PARK, N.,Y. OLE) —President Roosevelt Monday expected the coal industry to come withi: 'he fold of the blue eagle withi 24 hours. Immensely cheered b adherence of three major Indus tries—steel, oil, and lumber—th president put vacation plans asid and continued his drive to put th entire nation behind NRA. Steady progress on the coal cod was reported to Mr. Roosevelt b Gen. Hugh S. Johnson. The prin cipal difficulty in the way of im mediate agreement was consolida tion of the score of more codes sub milted by various factions. Mr. Roosevelt went ahead wit plans for administering the 01 code. That industry will be su pervised by a group composed o himself probably as 'chief adminis trator, and officials of the burea of mines and interior department Mr. Roosevelt it was understooc contemplated several minor chang es in the code within the next 1 days. The president was hopeful ; code for the automobile industr would be worked out before hi leaves Hyde Park to return to th< white house Aug. 31.

He kept in close touch with the Washington offices of NRA, eager to be appraised of latest develop ments. The president planned Tuesday to swing from his almost unbroken study of recovery efforts to discuss the world disarmament conference at Geneva with Norman H. Davis chief of the American delegation Davis, who is to return to Europe soon to prepare for the resumption of the parley, will be-a luncheon guest. Wednesday, Mr. Roosevelt wil entertain William H.

While buyers in Paris were paying 118 francs a quintal (about $1.75 a bushel), French grain dealers revealed that, thousands of quintals of French wheat had been sold abroad In the last, few days nt rices ranging from 41 to 45 cents quintal for about F,S to 63 cents A mult, tousum&rs in Germany, Holland, Switzerland and England for example, were able to buy French wheat at about a third of what the French themselves are forced to pay by the government's arbitrary price-setting law, operative within the country- Georges Lebecq, municipal coun- cillor of Paris, brot this fflet to the attention of the authorities and asked that French bread buyers be given the same advantages en- Joyed by foreigners buying wheat ralfced by the French formers themselves.

Professor Has New Theory BANFF, Alta, (IIJ.) — Japanese members of the Institute of Pacific Relations Monday opened a vigorous attack on a new theory of tariffs presented by Prof. James T. Shotwell of Columbia university. An international conference at which tariffs would be fixed in accord with labor standards was proposed by Shotwell. Products made under favorable labor conditions with short hours and relatively high wages would be admitted at lower rates than those manufacc- tured under oppressive or exploitive labor condition. If adopted, the theory would strike hard at Japanese industry, where modern machines and organization have failed to bring higher wages and shorter working hours. Shotwell's theory is that such International action would operate to improve the cendition of labor thruout the world and by bringing about a more equitable distribution of wealth would open up vast new markets for all types of products. Members of the British delegation, many of them members of the liberal party and traditional supporters of free trade, swung generally to the support of Shot- weirs proposal. They saw it' in opportunities for hard-pressed English industries fighting, the lowcost producers of the far east and cen- 10,000 Garment Workers Strike, Seek NRA Code CHICAGO (l'E>—Ten thousand garment workers, demanding higher wages and better working conditions and insisting their employers sign the NRA industrial code, walked out on strike Monday, tying up more than 100 ladies garment shops in the city.

Demands include a 35-liour working week or seven hours a day for five days, a minimum of ?44 per week for cutters, a minimum of $1.25 per hour for pressers and 85 cents per hour minimum for ope?* ators. ACTION ON STEEL Intensive Blue Eagle Campaign Will Start Mon. By HAROLD O. THOMPSON (U. P. Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON (IDE)— Recovery Administrator Hugh S. Johnson held the whip hand Monday as he pressed for a code governing the holdout coal industry. President Roosevelt gave him a precedent for dealing with the unionization issue, crux of the coal code fight, when he placed the steel, lumber and oil industries under the bluo eagle. The customary NRA provison that, no one be compelled to join & company union was in each code. Backed by those examples, Johnson was confident of quick action on coal. The precedent may be applied j also to automobile production this ' week-. A code on which hearings have been completed contained an open shop provision, but it haa bene characterized as unsatisfactory by Donald Richberg, NRA genera! counsel. , Also scheduled for action this week was a code for the retail trade on which hearings have been set for Tuesday. Coal topped this week's list, and Johnson called back his former assistant administrator, Edward F. McGrady from his new post of assistant secretary of labor. McGrady warned the coal men that the situation "is seething with unrest." Deputy Administrator Kenneth M. Simpson and Richberg also tried to whip the coal operators into line. Twenty-nine coal codes have been submitted and four days devoted to hearings. Both President Roosevelt and Jphnson have indicated Ahat the immediate job is to consolidate them into one master charter, gaj&^one o£:ihe dissenting groups was willfti3*ito' s i&ke responsibility for the final draft. The elimination of \wage differentials was a stumbling block, in addition to the unionization issue. The administration aided with suggestions for settling the dispute. Aside from immediate code discussions, the NRA was faced-with protests from independent oil producers against the code which the government drafted. An extension of the price-fixing provisions was sought, and the charge made that the present code would be disastrous to independents. The national labor Board turned to efforts to settle the Hollywood movie workers' strike. Judge Ben. B. Lindsey, mediator, arrived by airplane from Los Angeles Sunday night. He was to see Dr. Leo Kwolmau, acting chairman of the (Continued on Page. P .-«) tal Europe.
