Thrilling Show At Pitt Stadium By Springfield PITTSBURGH, Mar. 8.--One of the moat thrilling numbers of the program of the Springfield College exhibition team which will appear at (he Pitt Stadium on March 23 will be a series ot leaping, vaulting and diving stunts executed by the individual members of the team. Talcing a leap from a springboard, flying over a rope seven feet in the air, and linishingtsiff with a spectacular handspring or split over a side horse, these gymnasts always land on their feet when they hit the floor. . To a spectator, the movements are executed so smoothly and easily that Ihcy appear quite easy to perform. When the last man goes over six of comrades piled on the horse and smilingly lands in a somersault on the other side, the exhibition is brought to a close. c?

Strange Rural Tragedy Given Dash of Irony MORRIS, 111., March 8. -- The strange rural tragedy in which a man murdered his friend, then was prosecuted by a friend and finally sentenced to the electric chair by a friend, was given its dash of irony today. Twenty years ago, when murderer Elvin Wood and Prosecutor S. J. Holderman were students together in the local high school, they both appeared in their class play. And in the play, Holderman accused Wood of murder. Monday afternoon, Holderman accused his friend and lodge brother of murdering their mutual friend, Abner Nelson. The personal friend of long standing of all three, Judge F. H. Hayes, then said to Wood: "May the great judge have more mercy on you than I can. The penalty for your crime is death in the Illinois State Penitentiary April 14, 1939." Wood had pleaded guilty. Needing money, he shot Nelson February 19 and flung his body into a river, thinking to collect ransom from his wealthy family. Five days later he confessed, detailing the crime so thoroughly that he even recalled that Nelson, in his dying delmum, murmured: "Father, forgive him." "I trust that the dying prayer oE Abner Nelson was for your good," Judge Hayes told the weeping defendant.

NEW YORK, Mar. 8.--The WPA admitted today that it finally had happened. One of its wrecking crews tore down the wrong building. There wasn't a stick left standing of the three-story frame structure owned by the Newburgh Savings Bank when the mistake was discovered. And next door, a three-story building that the Title Guarantee and Trust Company had asked to have razed, stood untouched. The city housing authority, using WPA labor, razed old buildings Iree, as part of a slum clearance program. Title Guarantee had asked to have its frame store and tenement building at 158 Belmont avenue, Brooklyn, removed. The wrecking crew went out. At the corner of Powell street the foreman found No. 162 Belmont avenue. The next two buildings were unnumbered and abandoned. The first one was No. 158, the next No. 156. But the crew figured that the T.rst one should be No. 160, since it was next door to No. 162, and thnt the third house would be No. 158. So they attacked the third house. They had cleared the lot and reported the job done before Title Guarantee telephoned again to inquire when No. 158 was going to be razed. After an investigation, the WPA had to notify the Newburgh Bank that it no longer had a building at No. 156. · A spokesman for the tanfc said it objected very much. What action it will take has not been determined. Wndbcr Man Dies,. SOMERSET, Mar. 3.--Tony Gon- Russian Army Bis..
