Three week-end jail breaks in Texas resulted'in the serious wounding of one prisoner, the successful escape of five others and the recapture of three prisoners—one a dangerous accused killer. George Droddy, convicted robber, attempted to slug his way out of the Wise county jail Saturday. Deputy Sheriff E. C. Chapman, after being struck on the head, fired into Drodcly's abdomen, critically wounding the prisoner. Physicians at a Decatur hospital said he had an even chance for recovery. He ha^ bee*n convicted in connection with Chlco and Paradise robberies and was awaiting action of the grand jury here on other cases. Five prisoners escaped from the Georgetown jail but three were recaptured. Louis Cernoch, held for the slayings of two Grjmger. Texas, officers, Lloyd Fulton and Gene Anderson were tracked down and another car and drove off as Kar- caught. Cernoch was found in San pis fired a final blast from the ton- neau. The police learned their identities from two women companions . seized'in the raid on ti little hotel. The women were listed as Dolores Delaney, 21, and Wlnona Burdette, 22j also known as Mrs. Louise Campbell. Shot in the leg but not seriously Wounded, the Delaney woman waS treated at a hospital where she already had registered in anticipation of childbirth. A detective's -cheek was gashed by a slug from the sub-machine gun. Department of justice agents, their roundup of the reputed Bremer barid complete except for Karpis, ppyred into Atlantic City with submachine guns and tear gas bombs. "Shoot first and talk afterwards," \rtis the advice from Chicago, where qfflcials thought Karpis seek a new hideaway. might "Shoot first and talk afterwards," .techoed po\ice wireless and telephone-typewriter alarm systems throughout the east. : New York and .Philadelphia police guarded bridges and ferries leading into those metropolises. State troppsrs patrolled the intervening highways. The gun fight began with startling suddenness before dawn yesterday. Atlantic city police had received a request from Florida to be on the l.ookout, for a stolen car, the occu- IJfintB of which were known to have si shotgun and automatic pistol. Patrolman Elias Saab spied the machine in a garage near the boardwalk. • The men who left it there were traced to the adjacsnt Dun-More hotel, on Kentucky avenue, and a scluad of detectives and police set (jilt to arrest them, '-pffleers were stationed at front abd'rear entrances of the building: archer stood in the lobby and two went to the fourth floor room where Krapis and Campbell were quartered. The women were asleep in an adjoining room. •Smashing in the door, Detective Dan Mulhern stepped into the opening with pistol in hand. "Stick 'em up," he commanded, "We're officers." •'. "Stick 'em «p yourself, coppers,' reiwtefl Karpis, who was fully dressed and holding tha sub-machine gun. Firing as he turned, the bandit sent a burst of slugs at the doorway as Mulhern duoke'd. The two detectives tried to halt the outlaws flight from a corner in the_ hall- Vi'ayj but their revolvers were no ' match for Karpis' weapon. Kftrpis fired e. volley through the ctopr of the women's room to awaken them. Police said it was one pf 'those shots which struck his cqmpanion. He then dashed down a back stairway. Apparently climbing out a win- tjpw, they slipped past the outside guards and next were seen dashing down the street to the garage. .Kflrpis. stood off the officers while the half-clad Campbell, who found police had confiscated theii 'car, appropriated another. Off drove the fugitioes, Karpis firing '. until they disappeared into At lanflc avenue. IDetectlve Arch Witham discovered his cheek had been gouged by the only shot of more than 200 rounds which took effect. The police, who flashed a quick alarm, believe they got word to guards at the • bridges before the figitives could get across. For that reason they felt sure the men still Svere in the city. , . .». r- Roosevelt Wants John Garner As '36 Running Mate Gabriel park and Fulton and Anderon at Salndo, a few miles distant.

(/P)— Demure Grace Brandon, attractive army stenographer, today was faced with the dread task of once more baring to a federal court jury intimate details of her romance with Major Churlci' A.

Accompanied by gales and blizzards which have left a growing I;ath list and suffering in its wake, ;he frigid blast was moving in on ;he central states today from the western plains. Traffic accidents mounted in the west and central west, as the subzero temperatures came with snow and ice, pushing a pall of fog and mist ahead. In Nebraska, the mercury dropped :o 19 degrees below zero at Ainsworth; 8 below at Lincoln and 6 below at Brainerd, Minn., 22 be- ow at Williston, N. D., 10 below at [i'argo, N.

Instead, their land much In nesd of moisture, they greeted the blizzard jubilantly. Five deaths were blamed on the weather in Iowa. Three were killed in traffic accidsnts, and two were fatally Injured in falls. ' The eastern states awaited the arrival of the cold wave today, with predictions of rain turning into snow. Stretching from Oregon to Minnesota, the bitter cold threatened to envelope all territory in its path. Freezing temperatures prevailed along the west coast, with a new storm sweeping snow and ice in on orchards. Temperatures stood in the thirties in California, with the snow line nn mountains near Los Angeles lower than In years. Streams in the midsouthem states left their banks as heavy rains continued to fall. A Sunday rain turned snow to slush in Pennsylvania, and New York, in the 40's, was drenched with a steady light fall. In Canada, Battleford was the coldest spot on the weather map with a 54 degree below zero reading. In Helena, Mont., the mercury dropped to 48 degrees below zero.

GENEVA, Jan. 21 Iff)— Growing concern was apparent at Geneva today over how to solve the problem of Japan's responsibility to the League of Nations about her own mandate over the Pacific Islands, once her resignation from the league becomes effective on March 27. The question was deemed so important that some quarters are advocating a special session of the league councilon that date. In questioning today Japan's alleged Inclusive developments of some 1,400 former German islands in the Pacific, the council in no way discussed Japan's right to maintain these islands in the future, nor did it tacitly or otherwise approve Japan's right to maintain them. The league has been represented as believing that, from a practical standpoint, nothing short of the dispatch of an international navy would induce Japan to relinquish the islands, and the league does not even dream of such a step. What it can do is to insist that Janpan continue to bow to the league right of supervision. As one of the allied associated powers which distributed the mandates over all former German colonies, the United States has a voice in the future of the Pacific Islands, and the league is speculating regarding possible action. It was understood Japan already has canvassed the powers on behalf of election of a Japanese to the world court of justice bench to succeed Judge Adatchl. A movement seems to be forming against the designation of a Japanese because Japan resigned from the league after condemnation of her action in Manchuria. Similar opposition has been noted as developing against permitting Japan to continue to have representation on financial, economic. and other standing committees of the league. League circles think it not unlikely that some member may raise the question of Japan's right to hold her Pacific Island mandates even before March 27 when her membership expires. The Associated Press was given to understand that Japan plans to continue cooperation with the league even after her resignation heroines effective. Japan was expected to do this along the lines now followed by the United States and along the lines which Germany may adopt through cooperation piece-meal with Geneva without resuming complete membership. Mis. B. S. Vin is recovering at her home from a serious illness ROOSEVELT OPENS THE DOOR TO NEEDED CHANGES WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 (IP\— Demands from Capital Hill that the government raise its ante on social security brought a reply from one administration nuartcr today indicating that the door is n«t closed lo changes considered feasible. The administration, however, apparently was determined to press r.cutlvc director of the economic se- t:iitity committee which drew the administration plan. Before going before the home ways and mearis committee as (he No. 1 witness 6n the president's attempt to cone with the "vicissitudes" of life. Dr. Witte said the committee expected congress to make pome changes. "There's no thought on the part . of the committee," he said, "that it presented n perfect program, or that congress won't dot on 'I' or cross a T in it. "If congress can liberalize the benefits, well and good." He made no specific reference tc congressional criticism. Senator Bo? rch, among some others, has come out for more liberal benefits. Thr. Idaho republican called the proposer federal contribution of $15 to pensions for those now aged inadequate. President Roosevelt has taken the stand that, while that is the highest the government can go with wisdom, there is no reason why the states should not contribute more than the $15 originally suggested as their share. through congress without another gigantic measure- change -providing $4.880.000,000 for relief and public works. With critics of the "Jump sum" appropriation acknowledging privately that they were helpless, house leaders drove today to get this resolution through thsir branch by tomorrow night. They planned to*rcsort to so-called "gag rule 1 ' to do it. Thi! remarks on social security came from Dr. Edwin S. Wittc, ex- Jim Hatfield transacted business in Panhandle Friday.

The word that was being passed today was that Garner still ia the president's .choice. The news apparently blasted the h,opes of several prospective pspjrants. HA! HA! JOWET. 111., Jan. 19.

Since then neither has spoken to the other. "I don't intend ever to speak to him again," Miss Brandon said. .Gifts lavished upon the tall, 26- year-old seini-blon'de stenographer also figured in the trial. Some she still has and .uses. She didn't return them when her affection for the officer died, say- Ing "Under the circumstances, I didn't feel I had to." In one way and another, however, they have become scattered. The pet canary she wanted and he gave her died last year. She buried it in the back yard. She uses daily the $1,500 automobile Major Shepard gave her. The diamond engagement ring found its way to the pawnbroker. She needed immediate cash, she explained, "so I borrowed $110 on t it last year." Some of the loan was repaid, "but you know the salary of a stenographer Isn't much, and I finally lost it." Other gifts are held by the government as evidence. Some, such, as lingerie and other clothing, were worn "out and discarded. Resentful over the quirk of fate which thrust "suffering and unfair criticism," as she termed it, "upon me because I happened, to bo the object of his affection," Miss Brandon retired to a modest frame cottage on an unpaved street —the next to the last house from the end. There she lives alone. "A stenographer's salary, you know—," she explained, "and, too, it isn't far from Brooks Field," wh,ere she has remained as a stenographer. .«*, .
