WAIVE HEARING IN CHILD CRUELTY CASE; GIVE BAIL Continued from Page One. viction, it was said, and In view of the allegations ot agents of the humane society the original information was believed not to be severe enough for the evidence reportedly uncovered by investigators. According to E. M. Smith, chief agent of the humane society, Harris kept the child in the sunless storage room as punishment for his daughter's "sin." Martha is the mother of another child, a boy of seven. Meanwhile Alice Mary, emaciated and suffering from rickcls, responded to treatment at the Fayettc County Home. Her only impression since she was removed to the institution Friday night was a loud wnil when she received what was believed to be her first bath. A piivate hearing was to be held in the near future before the Faycttc county court for commitment ot the child to a State institution. Toy blocks and a rag doll were obtained and brought what was believed to be the first rays of sunshine to the child, unable to talk and showing visible effects of being terribly undernourished. An investigation into the alleged cruelty to the child had been conducted by Mrs. Helen Reagan of Conncllsville, woman probation officer, who had been asked to do so by the Pittsburgh agents of the humane society. Mrs. Reagan had the child removed to Uniontown Hospital for a blood test. The chud, suffering from sores at the base of the spine and without use of arms and limbs, was later taken to the county home. According to investigators the child was taken to the children's home at Uniontown three months after its birth on March 1, 1932. Less than a month later it was placed in a private home and then discharged into custody of the mother. The mother had told authorities the child never cried, revealing she never had use of her vocal cords. When lured into a bathtub, a novel experience for her, the child forced tightened cries through her Jips. Nearly 100 persons crowded into and around the small office of Alderman, Munk in West' Apple street. There was a crowd at the door and both windows were filled with persons trying to get a glimpse of the principals.. Miss Harris arrived ahead of her father. She stood in front of the alderman's desk, the collar ot her coat turned up, her faco focused on the floor, as she sought to hide her countenance from the searching lens of news cameras. Her father arrived in company with the attorney. His gaze was straight ahead and he showed no emotion. Neither he nor his daughter talked.. Mrs. Reagan and Miss Ann Martin, her first aid worker, conversed in low tones with the "young woman and oven posed with her for newspapermen as Miss Harris placed her arms around their shoulders, her face always looking down. " ' Mrs. Reagan, Miss Martin, District Attorney -Reilly, Assistant County Detective: \yilbert R. Minerd, Chief Agent E. M, Smith "and Agents M. J. greater and David Galloway were present for the anticipated hearing. Exped Upper Tyrone Teacher Case Ruling In Court Tomorrow Special Io The Courier.

Lost nlRht Hull In- vltcd the world to Join in peace efforts through trade reciprocity and ottered to cooperate in any joint naval arms reduction. Some congressional quarters speculated on the possibility of another message Irom the President redefining forelRn policy after Japan's reply his been received. The House naval hearing rcccsicd last week after Leahy refused to answer in public questions by Rcp- rcpresentwtive Ralph E. Church, R., 111., seckins informntion in n possible n.ival agreement between the United States nnd Great -Britain. Leahy ottered to "tcU all about it" in a j.ccret session, but his manner of refusing to answer in open hearing led some committee members to conclude that « Uicit understanding exists. Uncertainty over how aggressive a policy this NaUon would puriue if its naval increase is authorized served to maintain the clamor lor more information. In the Senate it wo* a New Dealer, Senator Robert M. La Follettc, Progressive, Wis., who demanded 'further explanation of the Administration's aims before Congress is asked to approve an $800,000,000 arms program at a time when money is needed to care for the unemployed. In the House a small croup headed by Representative Henry C. Luckey, Democrat, Neb., organized a nine- man committee to cck information on foreign policy and then determine what sized navy is needed to implement that policy. Flat opposition to the President's program is scheduled when witnesses for the National Council for the Prevention of War are called at the House hearing after Leahy finishes. The council is on record as believing the increases requested arc not required for defense of this Nation. Its witnesses will ask that Congress enact a policy patterned after a bill by Representative Gciald J. Boileau, Progressive, Wis., to establish a department ot mihary defense. William A.
