FOR EXTRADITION OFjACHADO Cuba Speeding Preparation of Murder Charges HAVANA, April 20 (A. P.) The Cuban Government is arming itself with legal weapons to bring Ex-President Gerardo Machado back from the United States to face charges of murder. They want also to bring back Machado's chief of staff, Gen Alberto Herrera. Both men will be faced with numerous murder charges if they are extradited. No date has been set for a presentation of Cubas demands for the, pairs return, but high legal authorities are speeding work on the case. Principally, Machado is accused of responsibility for the Aug 7, 1933, massacre. In that affair 17 persons were slain when police poured a deadly fire into demonstrators celebrating after a false report that Machado had resigned office. It is upon this massacre" that Juan M. Valdes Anciano, special magistrate of the Court of Sanctions, has asked WHEN feet ache and pain you cant go from store to store f searching for foot comfort there's no need to.

Many of Machados followers were not able to make their escape when new figures came to power. A number already have been convicted of various crimes. . Death sentences have been asked by the prosecutor for 25 former leaders, including Machado, accused of slaying six political opponents whose bodies were urearthed near Atares Castle last Summer. Cuban legal authorities have not been discouraged by predictions in some American quarters that the United States will refuse to extradite the ex-President and his chief of staff on the ground that they are political refugees.

DANA NAMED CHICAGO WINDY CITY Actually It Is 14th in List of Breezy Big Cities CHICAGO, April 20 (A. PJ Chicago is called the Windy City, but the man who first termed it that referred to the kind of wind some use to sell soap and get votes. A survey conducted yesterday by Frederick Rex, municipal librarian, revealed that last year in 24 cities in the United States having in excess of 300,000- population, Chicago ranked 14th in average wind velocity. The nickname was one of derision, arising from a battle among four cities for the Columbian Exposition of 1893, Dont pay any attention, wrote Charles A. Dana In the New York Sun, to the nonsensical claims of that windy city. The name has persisted through the years. New York tied with Buffalo for being the windiest city in 1933. Each had 98 days in which there was a breeze of 32 miles an hour or more. Cleveland had 70 such days. Chicagos total was only 11, - Los Angeles, in sunny California, the records showed, was the third foggiest city in the country, having dense fog for 22 days. New .York, and Portland, Or,. were tied for the lead with 25 each. Chicago, St Louis and San Francisco tied for 15th with nine each.
