Thompson based his motion on the eonten- u. c V.VH r--r - - tion that the plaintiffs had failed week, the weather bureau said to-, to prove a cause of action. of a DOLL © by Hildo Lawrence; Distributed by NEA SERVICE. INC The bureau said the crop is making "generally good progress" after a disastrous midseason drought. Rains last week in some sections) in Nebraska and Missouri, helped the crop considerably. In some sections of the eastern part of tne corn belt, notably In-, diana, there has been too much rain, however, and dry weather and hot sunshiny days are needed j to mature the crop. There no longer is much hope that the crop will produce more than the 2.404,000,000 bushels estimated by the Agriculture Department on Sept. 1. Growing conditions during the next few weeks will affect the quality of the corn. "The bulk of the crop will be safe from frost in about three weeks," the bureau said. ' It said progress of the crop in Iowa is extremely uneven, however, and that short, stunted ears are found in the same fields with v.ell developed mature corn. Agriculture Department experts estimate that at least 40 per cent of the crop would be damaged if frost came a week early. This would mean "soft" corn which has less feeding value.

People ran the car themselves after I quit." "What about Mrs. Marshall- Gill?" "I don't know. Maybe somebody went up and got her." Her eyes wandered around the room. "But she got down all right.

She started to whistle again. * e * "Jewel, will it upset you too much to tell me how you happened to be the first girl on the scene?" , ,., She made a small sound, like a sigh of relief. He knew why. They had come to a safe place, a safe place for everybody. Ruth Miller had been long dead when Jewel went into the courtyard. The trap had been sprung; the trapper had vanished. "That's no secret," she said. "Everybody knows what I did, everybody knows it was me. We had our masks off. Everybody knew each other then." She said she had gone to her room at midnight. Some of the others had stayed downstairs. And she had opened her window and seen Mrs. Cashman and her dog in the court. "They were coming Uirough the gate. I watched because sometimes the dog upsets our garbage. Then I heard her holler, not loud, but surprised. I thought she*d found something that was our property so 1 went down.

"Who came out next?" "\ · "Everybody. Out the kitchen door, out the front, some looked out the windows. Miss Brady got the doctor and police. They didn t know who it was. Even when they cut the mask off they didn t know. Then they saw her ring. It was her ring they knew her by. . ." She stopped talking and her head snapped back. She was listening. He listened too. Someone was coming down the hall with quick, firm steps. (To Be Continued) The Daily Register, 20c a w c by carrier boy.

Charges Drunken Pilot at Controls In Fatal Crash NEW YORK, Sept. 17-- (U.P.)-- A district attorney charged today that a drunken pilot was at the controls of an American Airlines experimental DC-3 plane when it plunged into Bowery Bay off La Guardia Field August 8, killing three of the five men aboard. District Attorney Charles P Sullivan of -Long Island City im mediately started an investigation "to establish where the criminal negligence rests." He summoned to his office officials of American Airlines, officials of the Civil Aeronautics Board, and the dispatcher who was on duty at LaGuardia Field when the plane took off for its fatal flight. The two survivors, Chester Ball, 24, and James Till, 25, both of New York, who escaped as the plane sank, also were called in. Sullivan quoted an official autopsy report by Dr. Alexander O. Gettler, city toxicologist, as showing that the brain of the dead pilot, Capt. Walter A. Davidson, 34, of Wantagh, N. Y., contained "three-plus alcohol," which he said Gettler noted was "a large amount." Sullivan said Gettler's report showed that the brains of each of the other two men killed in the crash, Co-Pilot Walter R. Zundel, 28, and mechanic Howard Hickey, 35, both of New York, contained one-plus alcohol, which Gettler called "a small amount." . , Frankfort, Dist 16 (Franklin county): Arthur Plumlee, Cambria, Dist. 19 (Williamson county); and Sidney Smith, Sandoval, Dist. 7 (Christian county).
