TIRES PUNCTURED AND CARS DITCHED Governor Incensed At IncidentLegislative Action Likely. Special Dispatch to The Evening Sun. Atlanta, Aug. 4. With Got. Clifford Walker threatening legislation to cure the evil, and with State-wide sentiment aroused, the authorities of Forsyth county in the' mountain region of North Georgia are in the midst of a perpleling situation as the restilt of a recent incident in which four prominent Atlanta women were held up by a band of prohibition enforcement officers, the tires of mr cars cut -and punctured by iron spikes, and their lives endangered when their careening automobiles plunged into a ditch. In addition, complaints have been received from half a dozen sources that negro chauffeurs of tourists and of Atlanta citizens have been seized and subjected to indignities. No negroes are allowed to live in the county, of which Gumming is the county seat. Promises Not To Cut Tires. who directs activities of the county officers accused of participation in the episode wherein the women were stopped, raid he had ordered his men to stop shooting at tires of fleeing automobiles and had not authorized the use of spikes to puncture tires of autoists. He said he would instruct his men not to use them in the future. The four women, shocked almost to a point of hysteria by their experiences, were Mrs. A. H. Latham, a widow; Slihs Ruth Sheafe, a Red Cross representative, and MiBS Sarah Carr and Mies Martha E. Foster. They were traveling in two automobiles from North Carolina to Atlanta after a week-end vacation in the mountains. Halted By Four Men. Near Cumming, where the road sweeps around a long curve, about three miles In length, both cars suddenly were confronted by four men, who, waving flashlights across the path of the cars, screamed to the occupants to stop. "The men looked like highwaymen," Mrs. Latham said, describing the incident. "I was terrified, I screamed at Miss Foster, who was driving behind me, to drive as fast as her car would run and we would run right through these bandits. For a mile my car rocked along the road with the other dashing 'along bsjjind. How I managed to hold found my car in a ditch, three tires punctured, aiid a half mile farther on Jliss Foster and Miss Carr had to stop also. One of fneir tires was punctured." Told To Surrender Whisky. Later, they said, the dry officers leisurely approached and demanded that they "surrender their whisky." When it was found they had no contraband the men were apologetic, and after several hours' waiting to get their tires repaired they were allowed to proceed. The squad of offiaers was headed by a Federal agent from Atlanta and was composed of county officers. It was also recently reported that an Atlanta couple rtnving through f orsytn county was fired upon by an officer when their automobile failed to stop at his order. No one was injured, but two tires were punctured. Suspected Robbery. Mrs. Latham declared she was sure they were about to be robbed, for behind them clattered a small automobile and it soon drew up alongside. In it, she snid, was a man dressed in overalls who demanded that she give him the whisky in her car. He also made the same demand of Miss Carr, it is said. Miss Carr said that while she was almost speechless with fright she managed to tell the man no whisky was in the car and to demand by what right he made such a statement. " 'Never mind.' " he told me. ' "Bonnie will be here in a minute,' and sure enough here came Bonnie,' who wore a blue coat in addition to overalls, and two other men who were clad in overalls." Bonnie turned out to be a man who said ' his name was ). B. Wallace, an nrent of the prohibition forces, under Fred J. Dismnke, chief of prohibition forces in Georgia. He wore no badge, he said,, but displayed a piece of paper carrying his photograph and name as his credentials. The other three identified themselves as J. W. Iach and Brarulett and MoGinnis. They said they wer. workine for enforcement agents in Forsyth county. Not one of them wore a badge of authority, it was stated. Screams Of No Avail. During this period, Mrs. Latham said, she screamed to a house alongside the road that bandits were after her. but no mind cnme from within. Later it de veloped that a crippled man named Bales lives there and he informed the women that such occurrences were common, it is said. Wallace, Mrs. Latham said, became thoroughly alarmed st what had taken place aim was eiixrureij mmi'mrm. He explained the reason for the punctures bv taking the women back up the toad where lay several long, flat pieces of steel, studded with snarp spiKes. These had been in place long before the cars passed and were visible around the bend of the road for three miles. Sheriff To Act.

Or The Diary Of A Traffic Cop. 8.30 A. M. I fooled them females at the boarding house Inst night. They think because I didn't go to school much I ain't got no education o r learning. Humph! Ive met college graduate, that knowed . less. In fact I bawled out a college pro fessor once that didn't know he couldn't park in front of a fire plug. The trouble with them women is they've got the same idea a lot of people has that you can't get a education nowhere only in school. They ain't hep to the fact, either, that it takes more schooling to learn aome people than it does to learn others. If some people went to school for a million years they wouldn't know their head from a . hole in the ground. On the other hand people like me and Abraham ,.fcmcoln don't need to go to school hardly at all. Going through life with heads like we've got is like walking around 'n your bare feet. They pick up things that stick in " them. But as I was saying I fooled them women at the boarding house. The boarding house lady was laboring hard and earnest and sweating 'profuse over a note she was writing to somebody. It must have been somebody important or she wouldn't have been so anxious about the punctuation. Every now and then she'd read a sentence to the widow and ask should she put a comma in it or something. I didn't say nothing till once the widow ordered a comma when I didn't think it was necessary and I spoke up and said so. Cosh! A body zwould've thought I'd cracked a joke the way they laughed. "You're good, you are," says the b. h.l., "making out yWu know something about it." " "Ain't he?" says the widow with a ha, ha. "I'll bet he ain't got a idea what commas and periods and dashes and things like that is for." Well, I do," I says, indignant, "commas is for short breaths and periods for long breaths." "Well, go on," says the widow, "What's dashes for?". "Cuss words," I says. lO A. M.

FRENCH WOMAN OVER HALFWAY ACROSS CHANNEL Mme. Sion Aims To. Beat American And Argentine Rivals. CHANCE OF SUCCESS. REGARDED AS GOOD Started In Defiance Of Unfavorable Weather, Hoping To Be First. By the United Press. Cape Gris Nea, Erance, Aug. 4. Mme. Jean Sion, plucky French woman swimmer, who plunged into the English Channel today, defying disadvantageous weather conditions in an attempt to be the first woman to swim across, had progressed twelve miles from Cape Gris Nez toward Dover late this afternoon and 'was believed to have a good chance of succeeding. , ' - Weather conditions were far from favorable, a strong southwest wind having made the water in mid-channel rough, but with Gertrude Ederle, American champion, and Lillian Harrison, of Argentina, ready to start at the first opportunity Mme. Sicm decided to take the long chain. . Rivals See Departure. Miss Harrison was aboard the tug which accompanied her rivaj, while Miss Ederle watched the departure from (he shore. ' Mme. Sion slipped into the comparatively Rmooth water near Cape Gris Nez shortly after 8 o'clock and struck out for the English shore, twenty miles away. A powerful swimmer, she lacked, however. Miss Ederle's grace and speed. The water fteing comparatively calm on the French side of the channel; Mme. Sion at first made good progress. Miss Ederle Is Favorite, , Despite the French woman's characteristic dash to beat her rivals, however, old-timers still felt Miss Ederle had the best chance of being the first woman to succeed in swimming the channel. They looked for the rough weather in mid-channel to stop Mme. Sion. . Tomorrow the so-called half spring tide sets in and lasts for three Jays, so the American girl's attempt probably will be further postponed until the first favorable day thereafter. Miss" Harrison, who failed recently after swimming to within a few miles of the gray cliffs of Dover, probably will start simultaneously with Miss Ederle.

I'nion lenders declared the operators' subcommittee is not empowered to grant any of the miners' demands, and that, therefore, it is useless to continue negotiations with that group, A statement was to be issued by the miners' leaders this afternoon, setting forth the reasons if they withdrew. This threatened break in the negotiations was believed to heighten the chances of a walkout by 153.000 anthracite miners this fall. 1 Warriner Is 8ilent. Philadelphia. Pa., Aug. 4.

Trotzky Eager To Treat With America For Loans Wants Five Or Ten Year Agreement To Finance Agriculture And IndustryFancies Terms Between Governments Would Follow. Copyright, M25, hy the Vnited Press. Moscow, Aug. 4. Soviet Russia is eager for a rapimy-liemenl with America and for American credit for use In agriculture and industry. Leon Trotzky, who is now directing the concession system of the Soviet regime, has lifted the curtain on his Government's policy in an interview in which he scoffed at the "absurd superstition" that revolutions are "made in Moscow." Capitalist governments, he said, are wont to blame Soviet propaganda for all their ilis, "just as the ignorant old peasant women of Russia blame the evil spirits for fires and sickness.' Blame London For "Dark Picture Of Russia." But America, with a "situation incomparably belter than that of European countries," ought not to share Ihis view, he contended. He pictured Amer ican bourgeoisie ss being influenced greatly by the European, and charged particularly that "conservative oracles" in London, painting a dark picture of Russia, are tending to prevent a rap- prochemcnt between the I nited States and Russia which would Ite advantage ous to both sides. He said that Russia needs electrification nod mechanization of her agri-ulture and. Iter indiiKtry and that n five r trn-year agreement could be reached with the I'nited States business men for credits which would be guaranteed by BROWNING TAKES BOHEMIAN CHILD AS HIS DAUGHTER Mary Spas Adopted After 4 Walking Five Miles To Answer Ad.

Member Charges Opinion Dissenting Against Award- Places Bankers And Lawyers In Class Of Building Tradesmen As Exactors Of Arbitrarily Excessive Wages. (from the Staff Correspondent of The Keening Sun. r Washington, Aug. 4. The exactors of arbitrarily high wages in this country are not confined to the building trades, bankers and lawyers who engage in refinancing weak railroads often are tarred with the same stick, it is asserted by Commissioner Joseph B. Eastman, of the Interstate Commerce Commission, in protesting a decision just handed down by the commission on payment for such a refinancing job. It Is the duty of the commission, in line with current preachments of economy in the public'serviee, to see that the same theory is carried out also in public services lik transportation, Mr. Eastman adds.
