MasterMn-Chancery William J. McGah recommended in his report .today that an injunction be issued to restrain Andrews from further prosecution of cases against the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Co., and the Southern Pactfkl Railroad, plaintiffs in the action. Judge U. S. Schwartz set Sept. 22 for hearing objections to the master's report. McGah, in his report, said that Andrews, his wife, Sylvia, nnd his brother, Noah, an insurance broker, hnd formed a partnership known as "Sylvan Associates." which was "organized ostensibly for the purpose of rendering invesf.igational services , to attorneys, but in reality for (lie purpose of soliciting cases for Sol Andrews." The business solicited injured em- ployes of the two roads to hire Andrews to represent them in their cla ms against the companies, the report said. purpose of soloniting injured em- ployes of the two roads to hire Andrews to represent them in their claims against the companies, the report said. Between Sept. 18, 1945, nnd Feb. I 25, 104G, Andrews filed 47 suits in j Chicago against the Santa Fe and 40 ' pgainst tin- Southern Pacific, the report staled. In sill cases tho report said the injuries were leceivert in Arizona, New Mexico and California. The report said the solid tors represented to tho injured employes that Sol Andrews would file their cases in Chicago instead of where the accident occurred because it would be convenient for the railroad to defend itself in Chicago due to the necessity of bringing witnesses long distances, and that larger verdicts could be obtained from Chicago juries.

"Stand back off'n myk property, ya sneakln dawgs, or I'll drill ya," the oldster greeted two policemen who responded to the call of the man's wife and daughter for help. He waved a pistol menacingly. The policemen stopped and called 'or more reinforcements. They also suggested to the women that they nsk Justice of the Peace W. L. Sterrett for a warrant for the old gentleman's arrest. The policemen, reinforced by two nore patrolmen and a detective, decided to try to trap the man while hey waited for deputy sheriffs to ar- •ive with the wan-ant. The policemen made a lot of noise n the front yard while Detective D. D. Dozier fastened a piece of ilothesline shin-high across the back door. Then the five officers went into he back yard and made more noise. They hoped that the old man would un out on the porch, trip over the wire and then they could overpower him. The old fellow ran to the door, but topped as his knees touched the rope. "Ya yeller dawgs, thought ya had me, didn't ya?" he shouted. About that time Deputy Sheriffs C. W. Grantham and J. W. Stacy arrived with the warrant, an armful of tear gas shells and new strategy. By prearrangement a member of the sheriff's office called the man on the phone, hoping to keep him occupied so the officers could slip in the house and overpower him. The two deputy sheriffs and Detective Dozier entered the house, but the old man heard them. Over the telephone he barked: "It's no use, young feller, your not gonna talk me into nothing. Besides I'm busy." He hung up, went to the back porch and fired several shots at the fleeing policemen. The bes'eiging party reorganized and fired several rounds of tear gas into the house. The man burst from the house into the glare of a battery of police car spotlights. He fired again at the policemen and the lights, then ducked for cover. The policemen who had taken cover too, returned his fire. No one was hurt. A few minutes later the man stepped into view, clutching his empty gun. A flying tackle by Detective Dozier floored him. "All right, ya got me," the old man sputtered, "now durn it, lemme up." At the county jail, his khaki trousers and blue shirt badly rumpled, the old man glowered at Patrolman J, A. Morrow, who had taken part in the seige, and muttered: "You're pretty .durn luck, young feller. Had my gun leveled on ya an' was about to shoot, an' happened to think of my son. Wish now I'd been thinking about my daughter—I'm mad at her." daughter. Nancy Jean, Lawrence, Kans. are visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. W. ShotWell.

Connally accused Langer of "ingratitude" because hS had helped the North Dakotan when the latter faced a fight over his seat in the senate several years ago. Langer told newsmen he will "speak briefly against confirmation" of Dooley solely because O'Daniel in opposing the nomination says Dooley is "personally obnoxious" to him. Here to watch the debate is Doo;ley himself, who has spent considerable time In connection with the hearings.
