THE EVENING NEWS, HARRISBURG, PENNA., SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1930 PAGE FIVE SECURITY PACT HOPE OF FRANCE AT SEA PARLEY International News Service LONDON, March 8. Abandoning its former practice of leisurely week-ends, the London naval conference plunged into the political aspects of disarmament today faced with the realization that France is determined to obtain embodiment of a security pact in any naval treaty the parley may achieve. "The French have returned to London," a high official told International News Service, "with the idea of a political pact firmly set in their minds." But Aristide Briand. French for eign minister, and head of his dele- No Extra Charge for Grandstand Box Seats When the Senators open the season on the Island this year fans will be permitted to use the box seats in the grand stand, which will not be reserved, Harry Davis, business manager, announced to day.

Senator David A. Reed conferred lengthily with Japanese Ambassador Tsuneo Matsudiara on the cruiser problem. Secretary of State Henry L. Stimson and Ambassador Dwight W. Morrow talked for a long time with Prime Minister J. Ramsay MacDonald at the foreign office. They discussed Briand's navy demands and the projected pact of guarantee in the Mediterranean. PREPARE CHART TO ILLUSTRATE From Page One at police headquarters this morning to describe the accident are Miss Ruth Venn, 22, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Venn, of 214 Yale street, stenographer in the State Department of Property and Supplies, and Miss Alma Stank, 18, who came to this city from Shamo-kin a week ago yesterday, and resided at the Venn home. She is a clerk in the Department of Labor and Industry. The occurrence was a particular .shock to Miss Stank, who was tak ing her first walk in Harrisburg and whose sister, Millie, 14, was fatally injured in a coasting acci dent lour weeks ago. Dart Behind Posts In signed statements, the girls l elated that they were on their way to work when they stopped on the northeast corner of Fifth and Market streets to let some trucks pass. Miss Venn was on the outside and Miss Stank was holding her arm. Miss Way, they said, waited with them on their right. They saw the stone truck driven by Bush coming through the subway, but thought they had time to cross and started. Miss Way followed. When they were halfway between the curb and the safety standards, Miss Venn said, she heard the truck horn sound and, looking up, saw the truck almost upon them. She called to her companion to hurry and they darted behind the posts. Miss Venn said she then glanced around in time to see the truck strike Miss Way just as the latter was about a step from the safety zone. She saw both wheels pass over the body, she said. Looking around to see the girl under the front wheel, Miss Stank said she ran frightened up Market street for nearly half a block. Driver Is Nervous Mrs. James E. Bush, mother of the truck dnver? said this morning that her son is extremely nervous and has been unable to sleep since the accident. This morning, she said, he went out to see a y.hysician and to order flowers for Miss Way's funeral. He knew the girl well for years, she said, although he did not recognize her as the truck struck her. Until two years ago the Way family lived only a block from the Bushs in Highspire. Mrs. Way's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Roberts, were next-door neighbors to the Bushs for eight, years, Mrs. Bush said. Hundreds of messages of sympathy are coming daily to the home at 1234 Swatara street, where the victim's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Way, are bravely conquering despair and making arrangements for the funeral of their only child. Among the messages were a telegram from the offices of the National Red Cross in Washington and another from Mrs. Lyman D. Gilbert, president of the Harrisburg Chapter, of which Miss Way was assistant secretary for five years. Mrs. Gilbert was informed of the accident in New York. Expect Large Attendance Becaues of Miss Way's popularity, the attendance at the funeral services is expected to be so great that Capt. George J. Shoemaker said today it may be necessary to close some streets between the home and Zion Lutheran Church, where the Rev. Dr. S. Winfield Herman will conduct services at 10.30 o'clock. The cortege will then move to Columbia, where burial will be in the Laurel Hill Cemetery. The following friends -of Miss Wray were picked today for pallbearers: Charles Cox, Richard Cox, Clarence Hendricks and John T. Wetzel, all of Highspire, and Vernon Simpson, of Enola. The sixth pallbearer remains to be selected. The automobiles, ' numbering more tnan sixty, of the Red Cross today. DeShong has not signed his contract. BANDITS SLAY OFFICER AFTER $5000 HOLDUP By Vnited Press i DETROIT, March 8, Patrolman David Winnegar was shot and killed today by two bandits whom ne interrupted in a holdup oi a haberdashery store. The policeman's riddled body was found huddled beside a street curb several blocks from the scene of the holdup, which netted the bandits more than $5000 in checks and cash. Patrolman Winnegar commandeered a passing automobile and gave chase as the bandits backed out of the store and raced away in their car. As the policeman drew closer, the bandits leaped from their machine and ran. Winnegar abandoned the cammandeered car and followed. He had hardly taken three stens when the bandits bullet found their mark and he fell. IN FIRE RUINS WAUKEGAN, I1L, March 8.' Firemen today found the mutilated bodv of a voune woman m tnei smoldering ruins of a summer resort bungalow on the shore of Deep Lake, near Lake Villa. She had been burned beyond recognition. Early efforts to identify the body proved fruitless, for both legs, both arms and the head were missing. Authorities were unable to deter mine whether the missing members i rad been hacked off or burned away by fire. Edward Schram, 49-year-old caretaker of the cottage, turned in the fire alarm. Shortly before he discovered the blaze an automobile raced past along the lonely road, he told authorities. The mysterious origin of the fire and the automobile led authorities to believe the woman might have been the victim of gangsters who maintain resorts in the Lake County lakes district. The cottage was blazing furiously when firemen arrived, and efforts to stem the fire proved futile. Soon after the walls caved in, they saw the young woman's body in the debris. An odor of gasoline was noticeable about the cottage, according to the firemen, leading them to the theory that the blaze was of incen diary origin.

A number of the seventy-five delegates expressed the opinion that compulsory attendance on the part of faculty members at chapel exercises, where compulsory attendance is required on the part of students, would stimulate religious activities in coITeees and in the religious education of students. More than 1,000,000 students are enrolled in the colleges in this country, according to Dean W. H, Powers, of Syracuse University, who said the ereater nronortion had been entrusted to college campuses by religious groups of society. Dean Powers, in an address on "The Faculty, the Student, and God," stressed the need for further ing the religious education of such a large student body. Thirty schools and colleges were represented at the conference, which was held under the auspices or the state i. jvi. u. A. This afternoon's program was to include two simultaneous conferences, in charge of Dr. H. J. M. Klein, of Franklin and Marshall College, and Dean W. L Watts, of Pennsylvania State College.

Bradley, widow of Col. Walter T. Bradley, who was formerly, interested in stone quarry operations at Swatara Station, died yesterday at Los Angeles, Calif, it was learned here today. She is survived by a daughter, Mrs. J Helen Bradley Foster, and two grandchildren. Special to The Evening S'cws PHILADELPHIA, March 8, Support of the late W. Harry Baker, of Harrisburg, for the Re publican State chairmanship by former United, States Senator George Wharton Pepper, caused the breach between Pepper and tne present Senator from Pennsylvania, Joseph R. Grundy, that has not been healed even to this day. The storv of Peooers friendship for Baker is told by the former senator in the current issue of the baturday Evenimr Post, it beinsr part of a series which Pepper is writing on his experiences in the Senate. In view of the present support the State committee is giving tne Grundy-Lewis ticket prior to the primary, the former senator's reference to the building up of his own organization in 1922 is interesting. In this connection he wrote: "Since this was a primary campaign, I could not call on the Republican State Committee or its recognized branches throughout the counties for assistance. Later, in the general campaign, after a candidate had been selected, this committee, with the weight of a State organization behind it, would function. Yet, an organization of some sort wai necessary, for political ideas, like social and economic truths, require elaborate organizations to propagate them, and candidates need similar support." Pepper' Tribute to Baker Pepper's tribute to the late W. Ht.rry Baker follows: "The period between the primary and the general election of 1922 gave me the opportunity for some of the most interesting work of my Senate i career, Apart from the routine du- i ties mentionel above, a second campaign had to be waged. Gif ford Pinchot. David A. Reed and I headed the ticket supported by the Republican State Committee, Largely under the expert direction of the late W. Harry Baker, first a secretary, then as chairman of the committee, a man whose political knowledge and ability were surpassed only by his likeable personal9' qualities, an active light was conducted, with the outcome never in doubt. All three were elected with substantial majorities, together with almost the entire State ticket." The break with Joseph Grundy at the time of the reorganization of the Republican State Committee, following the campaign of 1922 which raised Baker to the chairmanship and put the Dauphin County organization in line for State leadership, is described by Pepper as follows: Pepper's Break With Grundy "Over the State chairmanship there was an acute conflict within the party. Joseph R. Grundy, influential because of his faithful service to the manufacturing interests of Pennsylvania and his consequent ability to raise campaign funds, had been dissatisfied with . the choice made against his protest of a gubernatorial candidate to oppose Pinchot in the primary. Determined, it was generally believed, to rebuke those who had differed from him, he sought to effect the election as State chairman of a man of his own choice. He called on me to support his candidate. l, However, concluded that the preservation of the State Republican or ganization required the election of Baker, who had been the able and experienced lieutenant of Senator Penrose. My refusal to support urunuy s candidate caused a breach between us never afterward healed. I Baker's election by an overwhelming majority followed." By Vnited Prest WILLIAM SPORT, March 8. The American press was attacked and its "sensationalism" severely criticised today by Bishop Maze, Harrisburg, at the ninety-first annual Central Pennsylvania Evangelical Conference here.

We will mobilize the voters by tens of thousands to defeat any conspiracy of silence. On behalf of the voters who sent a wet senator to Washington, we call upon you to admit or disavow your part in this alleged plot against the freedom of the ballot" Second Place Offers From Washington comes the suggestion that Sheriff Thomas B. Aubrey, Fayette County, would make an acceptable candidate for Lieutenant Governor for the Mel-lon-Grundy group. There have been numerous suitable men advocated for both factions and there are many willing to get on either ticket. One of the latest rumors is that Philip H. Dewey, who recently said he was being "urged" to run for Governor and then was among those who is willing to be slated for Secretary of Internal Affairs, is now being considered as a Vare candidate for Lieutenant Governor. The State organization has not been interested in any of his personal candidacies. State Senator Salus said he had found very strong sentiment for the Davis-Brown ticket in Dauphin County where he spent parts of two days this week. Friends of the late Lieutenant Governor Beidleman here, he said, are in favor of joining the Philadelphia organization. His words were strangely in keeping with those used at a Philadelphia ward meetine bv Thomas Caldwell, son of W'arden Caldwell of this city, who is said by his friends to have deserted the Grundy-Lewis ticket after conveying the idea that Senator Grundy's appointment wa3 a good one and that former State Treasurer Lewis was the best fitted for Governor. Companionate Husband Loses $50)00 Balm Suit International News Service CHICAGO, March 8. Details of a companionate marriage contract, termed by Judge Michael McKinley as "outrageous," were made public today after Leo Dolan, 22-year-old student and companionate marriage husband, lost his $50,000 heart balm suits brought against his father-in-law. The companionate agreement signed by Dolan and his 22-year-old bride, Virginia Roth Dolan, also a student, was introduced yesterday at the conclusion of the trial. Under terms of the pact the wife was forbidden to call on the husband for support "nor contract bills in his name until such time as he shall have completed his education and shall have been admitted to the bar." ORCHARD From Page One sued today by Vare in the matter of his candidacy for the United States Senate, it was announced at the Philadelphia Republican leader's temporary headquarters in the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel this afternoon. A staement will be issued late this afternoon, however, by Dr. El- wood K. Kirby, chief of Vare s medical advisers. This is expected to be in the nature of a bulletin on the ndings of the physical examination Vare is undergoing today, and v?on the outcome of which his candidacy is said to depend. Organization Faction Busy While the Vare forces are as-semblying their ammunition the State organization faction wa3 also getting busy today. Senator Grundy, State Chairman Martin, A. Boyd Hamilton, assistant to the chairman, and others allied with the Mellon-Grundy organization are expected to confer on the situation. Samuel S. Lewis, Grundy running mate, was at the Capitol today. Vare returned to his home town from St. Lucie, Fla., where he had been staying with his family, to be greeted by many ward workers and other friends. He looked com paratively well but tired and re fused to discuss politics. He said he had no plan3 but last night he talked over matters with former Attorney General Brown and Secretary Davis who later left for his father's home in the western part of the State.
