FORD DEALER TO OPEN A 24-HOUR SERWCE STATION Frank! McCarthy Renews liea^e on Building Occupied Teh Years STILL FORD DEALER Building To Be Remodeled As "Drive-In" Service Station Soon . Prank McCarthy, lola Ford dealer, sinpouiiced today that he has secured a new lease on the building Ih which his agency has been locat- (Jd for the past ten years, and has made arranBcment.>i whereby he will qjien lo'la's first 'idrlve-ln" service station offering a4Jhour facilities' to the motoring public. He will at the .same time contlnut as the author- IZfd Ford dealer for this territory. Under his, presentl plans, work will be started within the next few days on the remodeling Which will be necessary In order tp make his building, opposite the Kelley hotel,, suit- fibip for its new dual purpose. The «lork. although noB extensive, will completely alter the appearance of the brick and steell structure now housing ,the agencyj. Plans have already been drawn by a skilled architect and construction will begin. Mr McCarthy said, as soon as the necessary structural steel beams can b< secured. Windows .Moved Back. When the romodi'ling is completed. Mr. McCarthy s^id that the large plate glass window.i which are now in the front wall 6n the first floor of the building, will all be moved 25 feet back from the front under the .second story. This will leave the front 25 feet of the building open for Its entire width, so |that automobiles entering can, be sen'iced under the protection from th ? weather that the second stoiy affords. The building is 75| feet wide. Mr. McCarthy ha; made an agreement with the Standard Oil company of Indiana ereby that- company will install twj banks of three of the latest type gasoline pumps, together with all ne :essary additional eq.Uipmeni. Mi. McCarthy will then become the agent of the company in the opera ion of the station. One tier of pumps will be set up at the front edg; of the building and the other at tiie back of the .tervice/station. mal ing possible the servicing of two lanes of motor cars at the same time. New Display Room. The large room on the south side of the building, no^' used as a storage place for automotive parts, wi be remodeled, using the windows moved back from tl elr present position, into an attra ;tive automobile display room, equipped with furniture for; the use oi patrons while waiting for their automobiles, and with rest room facilities opening from it. Mr. McCarthy pdinted out that the new station will be the first that north-bound motorists entering lola on 73W will find vhich offers 24- hour ser\-ice. which he considers an important factor s,nee lola,.us ap- proxlmatply gasoliie tank distance from Kansas City. The location. Mr. McCarthy feek. could, not be improved upon. The Ford dealer wanted it empha'- sized. however, that! tiie new service he is offering is inl addition to the .service he now giva as the Ford representative, and that rather than detracting from hils dpaler service, it will add to it. Any motorist, no matter what make jf automobile he drives, or what ser\- ce he, needs, can have that service a-t any hour during , the day or night, he said, ^f that service Ls beyond the staff ordinarily kept at the) station during the nlglit. arrangements have been made whereby as can be summoned notice. ;,- HOUSE STARTS WORK ON INCOME TAX BILL.

The first rehearsal for the third annual presentation of Handel's Mes.slah will be held in the First Methodist church Sunday at 4 p. m., E. V. Worsham, president of the lola community chorus, announced today.. The famed religious composition will be sung twice on Easter Sim- day, the first time in the afternoon and the second at night, txjth times in the First Methodist church. This chmch is the scene of the presentation, not only because of the size of its auditorium, but because it is the only church in lola which has facilities large enough to accommodate the chorus which last year totaled 76 voices. ' Mrs. E. W. Haglund will direct the chorus this year as she has done twice before. Soloists will be Mrs. Floyd Smith, soprano, Floyd Kelley, tenor. Miss Viola Dalgamo, alto, and Mr. Worsham, bass. The chorus itself will niunber in its composition members of virtually every church choir in town which vrill include the best vocal talent available in the city. The. chorus will be accompanied tills year as last by a special orchestra, a piano, apd the church pipe organ. The orchestra will be composed of 18 pieces, including one instrument for each part in the complete orchestration, with the exception of the violin section, which will be composed of several musicians. Miss Daisy Hobart will play the piano and Mrs. Kent Dudley will be at the console of the organ. "Altogether." MK Worsham said, "the Messiah will, be presented in lola in such a way as to make it something for the town to be proud of. The orchestra; augmented by the piano and orgkn, will provide more than adequate instrumental background for the vocalists, and it w ill afford an opportunity for lovers of music in this part of Kansas to hear a presentation which is tmust&l ^or a town of Tola's size." The Messiah has proved exceptionally popular the times it has been given in Tola during the past two years. Thousands of persons have overflowed the church audl- toriimi on each occasion, and Indications point to similar attendance this year. lOLA POLICE 0i( LOOKOUT AFTER BANK.ROBBERIES Chanute, Emporia pan­ dits Apparently^ Steer Clear, However $24>00 FROM CHANUTE ^ank Employes Takei as Shields, Preventing ; Quick Gunfight.

LIEBOLD SEEKING REST -t—i General Secretary to Henry Ford Is Located After Search in Upper Michigan Traverse City, Mich., Mar. 1. (AP) Ernest G. Liebold, general secretary to Henry Ford, located here after a 30-hour search tliroughout lower Michigan, i said today that he left on an unannoimced "vacation" because he needed rest. "I needed rest and I went to get it," he said, "I was both physician and patient and I prescribed for myself and then followed my own pre^ scription, and I feel fine for the first time in months." To Trooper Sylvester Niebzelski, of the state police, Lielwld said he had been "under constant high pressure for two weeks, dming which I slept only an hour and a half a night. He added that he "could not stand the-strain." Lietx)ld had borne a major part of the burden of aiding In the efforts Henry POrd was making to re- relleve the Detroit banking situation. His disappearance from Detroit alarmed friends and family. Trooper Niebzelski was sent to the Park' Place hotel, where Liebold registered imder an ^ssumed name, at Liebold's own request. He had asked that a man bq.sent "to protect me so I can rest quietly." "I jumped In my car Monday afternoon," he said, "to go to Greenbush to see a friend who operates a hotel there. The hotel was closed so t went up the road a way and slept a while. Then I came on to Traverse City." He said he hoped to rest at the hotel for a few da^s. The speedometer on Liebold's car Indicated he ha* traveled more than 550 miles from the tline he im Detroit. By the most direct route the distance i from Detroit to Traverse City is 276 mUes.

But War Machine Over- I comes AH (|)bstacles LAST CITIES TAKEN I Fall ofi Lingyuan and of Chihfeng Mbans Province Must Fall Too (By the Associated Press.) China's grasp on ithe province of Jehol has begun to weaken imder the hammering of the Japanese army marching westward from Manchuria. ; At all points the Chinese were reported to have put iip a good fight, but the day's dispatches told of the fall of Chllifeng, jChienplng and W[ungkimgfu, strategic defense points hi the path of the advance to;ward Jehol city. |The resistance was stlffer In the south, but the town of Pelchangy- Inigtze was rtjported to have been captured after a battle which lasted several hpiirs. This point Is 30 miles inside the Jehol border and about 85 miles tram. Jehol city. The defense wa's in the hands of negularsj provided I by Marshal Chang Hsiao-' Liang. Having taken Chihfeng the invaders liave overcome the most serious obstacle ih their advance southward from Kailu. There remains the town of Llngyuan to Impede the westward drive from Chaoyaing, but the attack at that point apparently was diverted to Chienping,! somewhat to the north. i In China and in Tokyo |as well there is considerable resentpient at the actlor^of Great Britain in applying "a temporary arms embargo against both countries. It was announced at Nanking that the central govenunent will make rep|resehta- tions In London by way of protest. Japanese dispatches to siilchung, Manchuria, said the attacking brigade imder General Hattori had captured the city of Llngyuan, 75 miles east of the capital of Jehol province. ' Suichung. Manchuria, Mar. 1 (AP) —General Heijiro Hattori, commanding the fourteenth brigade of the Japanese army, entered the city of Llngyuan, Jehol, shortly after nightfall today. Rengo (Japanese) news agency dispatches said there was heavy fighting before the Chinese defend- erfe submitted. The Hattori brigade started its invasion of Jehol from this city, striking at the passes of Shamoshan and of Paishlhksumen. where for a time they were checked by Chinese regulars sent up by Marshal Chang Hsiao Liang, Both sides agreed the engagement was one of the heaviest thus far in the campaign. The brigade struck northwestward after carrying those two passes. Meantime another column which had advanced toward Llngyuan fr(>m Chaoyang diverted its attack northward to Chienping, which was reported to have fallen today. Llngyuan is midway between Cho- ayang and Jehol city, ultimate objective of the Invasion. It is one of two points where the Chinese were expected to put up their defense. The other is Chihfeng, half way between Jehol city and Kailu. Chihfeng also was reported to have been captured. All the previous dispatches relating; to the Japanese plan of operation have [Indicated that nothing could stop the advance once these two cities ,were taken. Llngyuan is kbout 75 miles from Jehol city. Chih­ feng Is a little more than 100 miles n^theast of the capital.

Razor-edged wits, whetted by 44 years in one of the world's oddest Jobs, would become bltmt, he thought, if they had nothing more difficult to deal with than Jig-saw puzzles. * *^ \ So today, after retiring as "hard- reader" in the city hall poetoffice, he announced he would run for congress next election. Under the big dome at Wastiington, he figures, are protdems worthy of the mettle .of a man who can Idpk at Wulse Kohy and say: "Ho hum, that means Ulster county,! of course." A "hardreadcr" is the postoffice wizard who tak^ care of letters that have been addressed by idiots or illiterates or atisent-minded people, or dropped in mud puddles en them,and sends them to their destination—90 per cent of the time. •Tfou have to have patience, persistence and iotoitloD.'' Kelm said yesterday after admiring associates had glvm him a parting gift of a pocketful of gold. "A knowledge of foreign languages is a help. Some foreign-bom, for instance, spell American names pturely by soimd. You repeat aloud what they have written—and presto, it comes to you." "Hrsl" looke$i like a poser, but Keim figured out, in a moment or so, that it meant "Christie street." It is practically no trouble at all for a veteran hardreader to make "Kolnspen Puddam Kony" bloom Into "Cold Spring, Putnam county"; "Vetrpat Ain Brzk" into "Featherbed Lane, The Bronx, and "Cerow­ buk" into "Sears Roebuck." iOne of the toughest problems Keini ever solved was the transcription of the good American name IJOUIS Ahnin Ames. "All the strokes hi the writing of that name were straight up and down," he observed. "There weren't any letters that came below the line. Just write it out and see how it looks. I 've always remembered that name Iwcause it took me at least ten minutes to figure it out," 'Two farm bureau imlts, those at Moran and Elsmore, sponsored quilt exhibitions and teas in the Methodist phurches of those two towns yesterday whch were attended by women irom over the entire eastern half of the county. "llhere were 120 quilts displayed at Moran. ranging In age from but a fewf months to more than 100 years, and an estimated 175 persons viewed I them. Before tea was "served. Miss Kelley, a home demonstration agent for Kansas state college, spoke on the subject of quilts. Mrs. E. W. Haglimd sang two solo numbers and Mrs. Lillian Wright gave fa reading. Both ladies are from lola. Numiwrs were also given by members of the dramatics and music departments of the Morap high school.

(AP)—A strong fight loomed today in Earl Quinn's second miurder trial over the pistol that kiUed Jessie and Zexla Griffith. CJlalmlng the appellate comi;, in reversing Quinn's first conviction. Indicated the weapon should not have, been introduced in evidence because it aUegedly was traced to Quinn through his wife, James H. Mathers, chief defense counsel, said every effort would be made to keep It out of this trial. Judge J. W' Bird was to rule this afternoon on a question that may decide the issue. ' Tried once at Newklrk and sentenced to death, Quinn won a new trial from the criminal court of appeals and a change of venue to Enid. The pistol, a .32 caliber automatic, was admitted at the first trial after a witness testified he was led to the weapon by Jean Quinn, wife of the accused. Porter Testifies. , Tht preliminary skirmish came when C. S. Mannon, Negro porter on the Santa Fe railway between Wellington, Kas., and Kansas City, testified Quinn boarded the train at Wellington on December 28, 1930, the day the Griffith sisters were killed. Mannon said Quinn was accompanied by his wife, who boarded the train with Quinn, but alighted as the train started to leave. "And then'what did she do?" asked Frank M. Dudley, assistant attorney general. "Now wait a minute, we object to any testimony regarding the movements of the defendant's wife for the reason that it is indh-ectly forcing a wife to testify against her husband,".Interrupted Mathers. , 'Tm not prepared to rule on that at this thne." said Judge Bh-d. "I 'U look up the law and rule this afternoon. The witness now will confine his references to the wife's conversation and movements In the presence of the defendant." Possible Strong Point. Should vnidge Bh-d rule that the state cannot show the movements of Mrs. Quinn, then the state cannot show the pistol was found at a place revealed by Mrs. Quinn. "TheyTsan't show that Earl ever owned or saw that gim," Mathers Insisted. "Besides, the gun they've got has Ijeen in the hands of nearly everyone connected with this case. We don't even know it_ was the gun that was fpimd." The porter said the man who iMarded the train for Kansas City that fatal day was Quinn '.'to the best of my belief." , ' ' - "Was this man's face scratched like he had been'to a fight with two big women?" demanded Mathers on cross-examination. "Not that I noticed," replied the porter. "And!his clothing was not torn Uke he had been In a fight?" Mathers asked. "I don't believe so." Charles O.
