Aug. 18 (JP) —A fiendish murder, the fifth in recent years invohing young girls, or women, startled San Diego today with the finding of the body of attractive Celia Cota. 16, in ^ the back yard of her home. .Ain autopsy this afternoon dis-, plosed that the girl was criminally attacked and choked to death, ^everal gray hairs, found clutched j in her hands, proved to he from jabbits, kept near where the body j yias found. Police had hoped the, hairs would provide a clue to the j slayer. | Finding of the body ended a j frantic night’s search for the girl, daughter of Edward ('ota. customs liroker. She told her parents she was going for a few minutes’ walk | ^about 8 o’clock last night. A \ounger .sister. Esther, remained iiehind, explaining she was tool tired t » go. 1 Hour after hour passed and when midnight struck and she had not returned police were notified. Through the long hours before daw n they searched for Celia, i Not a vacant lot was overlooked.. Then after daylight, about 6:40| a. m.. they found her where they proi'ably never expected to look— in the liackyard of her home. The ; discoverv was made by officers Ed- w’ard Stoler and Leo Magone, who were cruising in a prowler car and at that time had agclear view of the yard. The gray hairs clutched in death were taken to coroner’s chemists for examination. An old trunk, about ten feet from the spot where the body was found, was to be examined for finger prints. First to be questioned by the police was Steve Rivera, an acquaintance of the girl. Officials said he was not officially a suspect hut they hoped to gain information from him. He had not seen Celia for two days he told police. The Cota family came to San Diego about ten years ago. Formerly they had lived in Los Angeles end Pa.sadena. The other violent deaths which l.ave baffled criminal experts here were: Virginia Brooks, 10 year old school girl, mutilated body was found in the .spring of 1031, the first of the series. Louise Teuher. 17, whose nude body was found swinging to «n rak tree on Black Mountain, near here. Hazel Bradshaw, pretty telephone operator, who was stabbed to death. Mrs. W. D. (Diamond Dolly) Pihhens. found strangled to death.

COVINCTON, Ky., Aug. 18. j (A*)—John T. Murphy, Kentucky state senator, and Ohio fugitive from justice, met a political foe in physical combat today, and lost. The .senator, a six-foot administration stalwart of Governor Ruby Laffoon, suffered a deep gash on the chin, lacerated lins, and a big bruise near the left ear. He sought treatment at St. Elizabeth Hospital here and then filed a charge of a.ssault with intent to kill i/;ainst Ben Castleman, fiVe-foot-six employe of tne state tax commission. Dem. and G.O.P. Murphy is a Democrat, Castleman a Republican. The senator yesterday made knowm he plans to Governor l.affoon to dismiss Republican appointees holding tax commission jobs. Senator and opponent met on the street before the Covington post office today. There are two versions a.s to what happened thereafter. Murphy said he was talking to a friend when someone slugged him from behind. Castleman said he met the senator and that he asked him during their chat if it was true he planned his anti-Republican step. Murphy became abusive, he said through his attorney, and rea^’h- ed as if to draw a pistol. Castleman then, his lawyer sai«l, promptly knocked the senator down and fled. Drew Pistol Murphy, the story u-ent, drew a pistol, aimed at the fleeing Castleman, and pulled the trigger twice, but without firing. 'Fni* senator, from behind hospital bandages, would not say if he had a pistol. “If Ca.stleman hadn’t run he (Continued on page six) HOLLYWOOD STARS ARE SUSPECTED AS ‘RED’ SUPPORTERS Lupe Valez,Dolores Del Rio, Ramon Navarro, James ; Cagney Named In Investigation of Communism NAMES FOUND Johnson Will Stay At Helm DIDN’T PAYOFF SACRAMENTO.

I “The President a.sked me to go , right on,” Johnson said today after a conference with Mr. Roosevelt. The Presidential word was accepted as a command by the militant administrator who for more than a year has personified the blue eagle to American industry. Apparently the W’hite ex- j pression put a halt to Johnson’s own desires for a quick return to private life.

(/in— Leo Pielik, 24, a convict sentenced from Chicago, die«! tonight as a result of bullet wounds intlicted during rioting which brought injuries to 22 convicts and three guards in the Illinois State Reformatory today. Pielik was sentenced to one to ten years for grand larceny in 1932. F’or more than an hour the battle raged between guards and convicts, and only volleys from guards’ rifles brought quiet to the prison yard. Several Wounded Several inmates were in serious condition, prison officials .said, and three guards were slightly injured. Damage to the print shop was estimated at $25,000, Peace was established in the prison, which houses youths and young men convicted of felonies, an hour after the rioting broke out. Tonight prisoners resumed their routine with little evidence of the disturbance. A squabble between two inmates precipitated the affray during the fourth inning of a baseball game betweerf a prison team and the St. Nicholas Hotel team of Springfield, III. Jump Into Fight At the first sign of trouble, several convicts jumped into the fight, and soon the youths were milling about in disorder. Three prison officials attempted to quelT the disturbance, but were pounded upon by leaders of the insurrection, and slightly injured. They were Capt. Burt A. Davenport; Roy Shepherd, a guard, and H. K. McClintock, an in. structor in the prison school. A club w'hich McClintock carried was seized and Davenport was struck over the head with ii. The fifty guards on duty ordered all inmates to their cells. Herded To Cell» Nine hundred prisoners of the south cellhouse w’cre herded into their cells with little trouble.
