Ambulances uid surgeons from Canton were ;ent to the hospital. Hospital officials were reluct- mt' to discus? the accident, saying il was not serious. They admitted however, that an x-ray '.ube blew up while the machine was in operation. Dr. H. O.i Black, who resigned •s president of the hospital several days ago, was called to the hospital shortly after the explosion. Police said the two physicians svere seriously burned, but hospi- al authorities refused to con- "irm this. Several employes of the Ohio" 'ower Company went to the hos- lital with an inhalator.

Residents said the car was parked there yesterday morning. The dead men were identified as Anthony Borsellino, age forty, and his thirty-nine-year-old cousin of the same name, both of Cleveland. Police were convinced they died in some gangsters' feud which possibly extended to other i Ohio cities. The victims were last j seen Tuesday when they left for j Akron, saying they were "going •to see a friend." It was believed Akron. bootleggers might have been the killers, while significance was attached to a report that three men,one' recognized as a. rum runner operating near .Lorain and the other two believed to he hired gunmen, talked of plans to "bump some one off" as they stopped .it Elyria on their way here Tuesday. _ . The dual slaying was believed to have taken place between Akron and Cleveland shortly before the bodies were left in the abandoned car. Both bodies had been shoved head foremost into the rear compartment of the coupe and the hands and feet of both had been trussed with clothes line. A blood stained towel was wrapped around "the neck of the older man who -apparently—ihad fought his slayere.

INTERESTING LETTER ( Twice each year for the past several years. The Tribune has received interesting letters from Rev. H. G. C. Hallock, missionary located at Shanghai, China. He lias spent many- years . in China and knows conditions there intimately. His letters are always welcome. • Rev. Hallock sees China^ torn with strife, disserlsion and graft in all provinces. It is a land-of make-believe, he writes. His letter follows: : CP. O. Box No. 1234, Shanghai. China, Jan. 30, 1930 Dear Editor:; Here comes a letter from this land of "make-believe."

' Hope has not been abandoned that Prance and Italy will sign a treaty of limited, scope, probably confined to a continuation of. 4he battleship building holiday and a declaration that • submarines shoutd.restrict themselves".'to- humanitarian .methods In .warfare. But it is evident that in Washington at least there is expectation that even with France and Italy left out, 'the prospective treaty- will be a substantial! practical contribution to the cause of naval armament limitation. ' x The Daily Herald says Mr. Stimson received instructions from President Hoover to inform Premier .MacDonald that America would.enter a consultative pact;if it ; would save the •'conference. American' headquarters stated thiB was not correct, that Presl- ... .. r iit . dent Hoover, had sent no instructions and'-that the. statement represented ..the setitiment of itie entire American delegation. It was added; however,.- that Mr. Stimson had kept President Hoover informed: of. all developments. . In considering the situation, observers''emphasize that even U France's disslres tor security are satisfied 'tnert 'would still remain the iMiie idf Italy's demand for parity with, t^rence as a stumbling -block: kpwever. it is plain that if the four other powers found themselves In accord on a basis which would make possible a fire-power' tfeaty, except for the Italian position,- the Italians would be put Into a corner..

Sounds- simple, doesn't it? Well, it wasn't so simple for the government officials to decide what should be considered a farm by the enumerators during the census to be taken in. April.
