Jan. 31 WP) — In th,e shadow of the state's electric chair Decause or a clerk's inadvertent mistake. Cecil Short, 23, today sought an attorney to aid him in his complicated fight for existence. The youth, convicted for the slaying of a 75-year-old negro during an $11 robbery, heard Judge Poland G. Williams formally sentence him to death yesterday after It was discovered a commutation to life imprisonment granted by Ex- overnor Miriam A. Ferguson had been dated seven months prior to commission of the crime. The trial court assessed the death penalty and the court of criminal appeals sustained the verdict, but Governor Ferguson granted clemency. Several days ago Judge Williams ashed the youth for the proclamation for use in entering it into the coiU't's minutes. Short hugged the proclamation and refused to let it leave his sight, explaining "it means life to me and no one can have it." Judge Williams ordered a photostatic qopy from the secretary of state. It was then the error was detected. Meanwhile, Short had given the commutation to his mother. She returned to her Denton county farm home and today the youth sought her. She had conferred with attorneys and the condemned boy did not know his attorney's name. He admitted he needed him badly. Judge Williams said he did not expect the death sentence to be carried out, adding that he did not wish to "be a party to thwarting justice by making It possible for Short to get out of serving his life sentence because of a clerical error in the governor's proclamation." He admitted the mistake "obviously was a typographical,.error." Judge Williams set the execution date for March 8.

ANXIOUS CLIENT WHITEHALL, Mich., W) — John Mahan, a professional diver from Muskegan, donned helmet and diving suit for a plunge through a hole in the ice to the bottom of White lake. An anxious client waited above on the lake's frozen surface. In a few minutes the diver reappeared and handed his client the object of the underwater search —a set of false teeth. BATON ROUGE, La., Jan. 31 W)—The Square Deal association, bitter anti-Long organization, has appealed directly to President Roosevelt for a congressional investigation of conditions in Louisiana, tinder Hlley Long's dictatorship. The plea was made on the eve of the scheduled resumption by Long of a court "inquiry" into what he charges was a plot to assassinate him. The hearing, before an East Baton Rouge district jAclgc, is due to be taken up Friday where Senator Long left off last Saturday after presenting a witness who testified to a conspiracy against Long's life. The congressional inquiry was requested by the Square Dealers thru their executive committee and Lee O. Lester, vice president and acting head of the association. The request cnarged an "absolute dictatorship exists in Louisiana depriving our people of their constitutional rights of suffrage and liberty and called on the president and congress to name a committee ol "nationally known men who are not political office holders ... to study the situation in detail, to read all our late so-called laws, to ascertain for you how completely our people have been subjugated and to report back to you and to congress as quickly as possible." Tlie appear was wired to President Rcoseyclt, Vice President Garner, and Speaker Byrns of the house. Long's charge of an "assassination plot," the appeal said, "is recognized by every thinking citizen of Louisiana as an attempt to intimidate by a frameup those who oppose him."
