was upheld today The Foster company failed to be represented at any hearing but filed an affidavit made by one of its employees which alleged Hohfeld would have arranged to sabotage his machine if he

show It knew of Hohfeld s alleged statement prior to his discharge The NRA yesterday withdrew the Blue Eagle from the Hatch Hosiery Company of Belmont N C because that mill failed to ratify an

ON BOOKS SO FAR Washington Aug 11— (AP)— The year 1934— the dryest and hottest on record thus far The Weather Bureau says so and it has been keeping tab on precipi-tatlon and temperatures for 70 years The drought has been aggravated by sizzling heat "Nothing remotely approaching the severity of this combination appears in the annals of the Weather Bureau" J B Kincer weather bureau meteorologist said today Other drought years notably 1894- 1895 1901 1910 1914 and 1930 were exceedingly dry In many sections he said but no previous 12 months has shown such generally deficient rainfall during April May June and July In addition to emphasize the seriousness of the situation Kincer pointed out that most of the previous dry years were preceded by years of adequate rainfull whereas the past three or four years have been abnormally dry in many parts of the country most seriously af- lectea by drought this year Routh's Killers Declared Guilty (Continued From Page One) Baxter who will be

thing ever witnessed in a country which to outsiders is full of strange things j TEESTER'8 BELIEF HELD VERY HELPFUL TO HIM Columbia S C Aug ll-(AP)— Calling a truce in the cold war between science and religion a state medical authority today recognized "faith" as an important factor in what he termed an "excellent chance" for the recovery of Albert Teester of Sylva N C faith healer who allowed a rattlesnake to bite him Dr James A Hayne state health officer of South Carolina said Tees-ter's steadfast belief he was immune to snakebites constituted a real element in overcoming the venom of the mountain reptile "It enables him to maintain a nerve balance and self-control that would be impossible if he had been extremely frightened and nervous because of the possible effect of the bite" Dr Hayne said "That in turn has a controlling effect upon his physical condition" Drawing upon personal experiences in treating snake bite as a private practitioner Dr Hayne said he had never had a patient die of snakebite ' Persons of strong constitution can throw off the venom without taking an antidote he explained unless the bite punctures a vein Apparently the snake did not bite Teester in a vein he said as death almost certainly follows the infusion of poison into the blood channels Another factor in Teesier's survival the health officer said was the fact that the snake must have struck a number of times and exhausted much of its venom when it was captured rendering its subsequent bite less dangerous The final element he asserted was the faith healer's refusal to accept a quart of liquor offered him by one of his congregation "If you want to be sure to die" Dr Hayne concluded "just gulp down about a quart of liquor after a snake hits you" Acquitted of Charge of Conspiracy to Murder (Continued From Pag One) Clyde youngest son of the household of which Leoda was an adopted daughter Release From Jail For the elder Tilleys and Clyde It meant release from the little jail they have occupied for six months Minerva has been free on bond and Luther still faces charges In connec tion with the slaying of Andrew El-dridge seven years ago It was the "prank slaying of El- dridge in a reputed bootleggers war which furnished the prosecution with a motive in its long investigation of the Childress mystery The State claimed Leoda was killed to keep her from implicating Luther in the Eldridge case which had been listed as unsolved While the prosecution had an nounced at the time the Tilleys were arrested it would attempt to connect the Eldridge and Childress cases the former killing was not mentioned In the voluminous testimony fur nished by the State which sent nearly 100 witnesses to the stand in three days of evidence It was not until near the close of its case today that State testimony indicated a motive and that was the alleged jealousy of Minerva Tilley over the attractive 18-year-old girl Tow Childress silver haired fath er of the slain girl was the State's last important witness He said he had received a letter signed W W Tilley about a year before the kill ing telling him to come get his daughter as she was "parting man and wife" He said he went Immediately to the Tilley home only to have W W Tilley tell him the letter was not true and that it had been forged by Minerva Tilley Other witnesses had told of the jealousy The State also offered many wit nesses in an attempt to prove that Minerva forged a strange note found In Leoda's apron pocket three days after her death indicating she had been slain by robbers Admitted Jealousy The first official inkling of a oos- sible motive in the strange slaying of the girL foster daughter of the household was brought out this aft ernoon when Kirk Purdue a neighbor quoted Mrs Luther Tilley one of the defendants as admitted she was Jealous of the slain girl xutner wants a divorce" the witness quoted Mrs Tilley as saying something less than two years ago "I'm so jealous about Leoda that I haven't slept with Luther for months Purdue's story was the high spot of the day's testimony which reached the jury Two other bar rages of evidence in the State's case were kept out of the trial records when defense objections were sustained The State sought to place Ber nard Brooks a handwriting expert on the stand to corroborate the opinion of two other experts that Mrs Luther Tilley rather than Leoda penciled a strange note found in her apron pocket three days after she was shot but the witness was withdrawn after the defense challenged his competency ine note wnicn was found according to previous testimony by Mrs W W Tilley told of a visit of band of marauders— a Negro and tliree white men— hunting for the elder Tilley "treasure box-containing $610 and of the girl's determination to "give my life rather than tell them where it Is" In the Jury's absence Mrs Hill Cox sister of the slain orphan gave testimony designed to 3how that Luther Tilley attempted to destroy all specimens of Leoda's handwriting after the homicide but Judge John M Oglesby ruled the evidence was not relevant Mrs Cox said a shoe box full of letters from Leoda was destroyed when hej home was burned eafly in the morning three dayi after the flaying A few days before the fire she said she had seen Luther Tilley and a stranger standing on a creek bank near her home She quoted Luther as saying to his companions: "There she is now" The Cox home is approximately 20 miles from the Tilley place Mrs E Z Darnell a picturesque mountain woman who has passed her three-score and ten years brought ripples of laughter as she bantered with counsel while telling the Jury that when she examined Leoda's apron the night after the slaying she did not notice any note in either pocket Previous witnesses Including the coroner had testified similarly Testimony was drawn from several witnesses during the day to indicate the elder Tilley thought his money box would be found even though Leoda's death coupled with a telephone call for help to neighbors a few minutes before her body was found indicated it had been taken by robbers One witness T D Barker a deputy sheriff said the aged Tilley once said "Leoda was such a fine girl She always looked after my things and I think we'll find it She always took the money and hid it when a stranger came in the house" The witness also said Clyde Tilley told him in the county jail after his arrest: "I'm ruined I know I'm going to get some time" On cross-examination he said he testified at an earlier hearing that Clyde had told him he believed Leoda killed herself Questioned further by the prosecution the witness said Clyde's full statement was:- "I believe Leoda killed herself If she didn't Minerva (Mrs Luther Tilley) did" Until today the State had not revealed the Jealousy angle of its case but Solicitor John R Jones had announced he would seek to convict Luther as the actual slayer on the grounds that he feared Leoda would implicate him in a seven-year-old unsolved slaying Wilson Grider serving a term in the county jail for housebreaking corroborated the testimony of a half dozen other witnesses who said they overheard Mrs W W Tilley tell Clyde at the jail: "If I were you I'd die before I told" Grider said he did not know to what she referred The State attempting to show murder and conspiracy thus far has introduced evidence showing none of the defendants on the premises at the time of the killing except Luther Several witnesses said he apparently was rabbit hunting near the house when they appeared in answer to Leoda's cry- for help over the party telephone line Will Survey National to Aid in Drought Relief (Continued From Page One) turage lands of this State are in excellent condition" " The condition in the drought area means that North Carolina farmers can dispose of their surplus feed crops on a rising market that the Federal government if and when such action is necessary can shin thousands of cattle from the drought areas into this State for pasturage More than 30000 such cattle already have been shipped to North Carolina for fattening in pasturage be-' fore being slaughtered and canned for beef for relief purposes Half-Million Questionnaires More than a half-million questionnaires each containing 123 questions are being mailed now from Washington to start the survey Mr Callander stated From 20 to 150 reports will be received from each county in each state and all the data will be in Washington by September 10 Typical questions are: 1 What is the water situation in that county? How many farmers now have to haul water and how far do they have to haul it? 2 What is the amount of feed available and what amount will be needed? 3 What is the amount of livestock on hand and what is the number which can be cared for? Agricultural agencies in the various states and counties are to cooperate in making the survey The North Carolina work will be under direction of Frank Parker Federal statistician in cooperation with the State Department of Agriculture county agents and others in a position to give assistance "Relief moves following the survey should be under way by the middle of September" Mr Callander said No Food Shortage "As I see it now there is no danger whatever of a food shortage for the American people The amount of wheat now stored in America in round numbers is 270000000 bushels and the current crop is about 4HUuuu000 bashels Our normal yearly consumption is approximately 600000000 bushels so we have a sufficient supply on hand to obviate the necessity of importation of mucn wheat "Then too the liquidation of live stock in drought areas with widespread canning operations being carried on by the government will afford a supply of meat more than adequate Must Help Breedlnc Stock "In the drought-stricken states where the raising of livestock is one of the most important Industrie the government must look to the future and keep on hand in those areas a sufficient supply of foundation or breeding stock That means that feed must be shipped Into those areas since feed crops there have been burned up and farmers already are using stored feed intended for use during next winter" News stories of terrible condi tions in the drought areas have not been exaggerations Mr Callander declared "J have ridden (for miles through those states without seeing an ear cf corn on stalks standing in blistered fields" he stated "In most instances the stalks themselves are no good for fodder either since they are so parched as to crumble at the touch of a hand "The water problem is terrible One farmer told me he was having to drive his livestock ten miles to water When he got the stock back to the home ranch it was as parched and thirsty at before the trip to water "Irrigation projects have suffered terribly There was less than normal snow in the mountains last winter and that has resulted In a shortage of water supply "The drought started in the Da kota and was serious there last spring Emergency crops put in by the farmers in those states then are now parched and useless The drought then spread to Minnesota Wisconsin Montana Nebraska Colorado Kansas Oklahoma Texas Now it has spread to parts of Illinois and New York "It is impossible to describe the way in which those areas have been hit Many of the farmers have as their only income the reduction benefit payments from the government One man with whom I talked received a check for $1200 the only income he had in sight "But the attitude of the people is splendid They say that they have passed through terrible things in the past and that this drought too will pass away eventually" ' Mr Callander will go from Raleigh to Washington to superintend the survey Officers Arrest Bremer Suspect (Continued From Page One)
