FOUL PLAY SEEN IN RAMME DEATH Post Mortem Discloses His Back Was Broken and Ribs Crushed. STREATOR, HI., March 13. UP}-Post mortem disclosure that Charles Ramme, 55, had a broken back and crushed ribs when found dead in bed at his farm home Wednesday night precipitated an investigation of the mystery today. v Ramme apparently had been dead four days or more when found by his brother Otto and his wife, who. passing the farm six miles south of here, saw no tracks in the .snow. Doors of the house were locked. It was first thot Ramme died of cerebral hemorraliage. It would have been impassible'for R*mme to get into-bed,unassisted with the fractures he had suffered. A.woman known as Anna Arnolds announced her marriage to Ramme, celebrated secretly Feb. 25, 1931, a year after he was divorced. She produced a marriage certificate from the room where he died and- said she had not talked to him since a telephone call Sunday night.

One held me while the other hit me over the head with a ball bat. When I woka up, there I waa with my head bashed in -and I found I had been robbed of $400. But I put up a ter- nfic fight. I knocked one down and thot I had killed him. I strike a terrible blow when I am angered." As Emler spoke, a quiet woman entered the station and sat down near him. He waa about to go on with the story when she arose. "Mr. Officer," said she, "I am Mrs. Paul Semrow. My daughter, Harriet, is this man's wife, which would make me hi8 mother-in-law. This morning he beat up his wife. Then he came over and told me he Was, going to do the same to me. "I grabbed up a hammer and cracked him." Emler sighed as the sergeant led him gently to a cell. FIRST BIRTHDAY Newest Planet Only One With Same Gravity Pull as Earth. FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., March 13 '*-- Today Is Pluto's birthday, the first anniversary of the discovery of "Planet X," the ninth wond and the only one which is Mother Earth's twin in size. The birthday marks the finish of the big scientific row which this shy, far-distant brother stirred up. For months some astronomers called him a comet, or at best a "planetary object," a sort of halfwit planet. · Pluto now appears to be the only known place where a human being could go without changing his weight. His mass, the factor which determines gravitation's pull, i« very nearly that of the earth. Both he and earth are about 8,000 miles In diameter. Light Is Yellow. Pluto's light is slightly yellow, resembling the shine of mercury, innermost of planets. In one respect Piuto differs from all other planets, the rakish angle at which the plane of his orbit is tilted. His eight older brothers and sisters all have orbits set in the same plane, which figuratively lies like a puritan hat brim severely straight across the brow of the sun Pluto's orbit is tipped to one side like the chapeau of a cavalier. Its tilt Is 17 degrees. Difference Important This 'difference is profoundly important to astronomers. Something titanic happened to account for this partial upset in Pluto's baseline. Solving it may help astronomers read the riddle of creation.,' His name? It was picked by an 11-year old English miss, who in duced an astronomer to cable it n., a suggestion the nlgnt after the discovery was announced. Two Grades Will Be Added to Course of Woden High School WODEN, March 13.-- In an election here to determine if the local high school course of ninth and tenth grades should add a eleventh and twelfth grade next year, the decision was in the affirmative.

Merwin Zwald has been in charge of the school this year. DEMAND GRAIN'S JOB Charges against District Attorney Thomas C. T.
