"BOOKIE" MAY FACE PROBE BALTIMORE,. Aug. 4 (£»).—Police moved today to take before the grand jury the case of a man accused of horse race bookmaking and discharged in magistrate's court because a policeman obtained evidence against him while- posing as a cab driver. The suspect was discharged by Magistrate Henry Mann who held that Policeman Allan Clarke was not. in fact, a policeman while he worked for two weeks as a cab driver seeking evidence against cab-driving bookies. Sergeant Ralph Amrein. who preferred the charges, said he had detailed Clarke to the job, and had made the arrest on evidence the policeman obtained. Amrein said the case would go to the jury. Magistrate Maim held that Clarke worked without police credentials, did not arrest the suspect, and that Amrein did not witness the alleged act of bookmaking. Records of the cab company showed that Clarke-, as a cabbie, received approximately $11 and spent $21 for gasoline for a net loss of 810.

LAST MINUTE MOVE TO AID ADJOURNMENT (Continued from Page 1) ed and leaders sought to avoid consideration of controversial measures.

James Newman drills and blasts in darkness—just as he has for 10 years. Newman is sightless, blinded in a blasting mishap in 1929. He waited until his wounds healed, then back he went to his claim and his cabin in the Wasatch mountains just east of Salt Lake City. Now his mind runs 600 feet into the hilside. He tunneled every inch of it, drilling, blasting, mucking, rail laying and tie cutting. The shaft is eight feet high, planned that way so he won't bump his head. Newman can tell exactly where his drifts lead off from the main I tunnel. Only one factor in his quest for "pay dirt" stumps him—he must depend on friends to describe rock that may contain ore. He's taken out some gold, but the "strike"—that goal that leads all miners on—still eludes him. Now 45, Newman, a bachelor, lives the year out alone at his mine, coming to "town" about every three months for supplies. He works night shifts, too. Why not? Friends marvel at how deftly and quickly he finds his tools and fires his shots. It seems perilous, this business of a blind man mining. Newman laughs at that. "It isn't nearly as dangerous for me to fre blasting powder in my mine as it is to cross a street in the city." assage of this bill. The House leaders eliminated another controversial issue with n announcement by Representa- ive Rayburn (D-Tex) that amendments to the wage-hour law would lot be considered in this session. Both chambers approved a minor )ill exempting operators of small telephone exchanges from the act. Aside from the appropriation bill, the only remaining problem was he deadlock over amendments to the Social Security law. Although there was some hope of a last-minute compromise. Senator Vamlenberg (R-Mich) offered an amendment to a minor revenue bill to "freeze" old age insurance payroll taxes at their present 1 per cent until 1943. This was one of the major objectives in the social se- urity legislation, approved in varying forms by both houses. A Senate appropriations subcommittee was called into session to consider the deficiency appropri ations bill in an effort to get it to the Senate floor by noon. Progress of the bill through the Senate was likely to be slow, for several members were ready with Mercury Hits 96 Degrees Thursday Moderate to heavy thundershowers yesterday afternoon sent the mercury down about 20 degrees within a few minutes but there was no appreciable relief from the current heat wave. The mercury hit 96 degrees about 2 o'clock, J. A. Miller, government weather observer at Keedysville reported. It was the highest recording for about a month although a reading of 97 degrees is tops for the season. Marriage To Stenographer Upheld By Oklahoma Court. Oklahoma City, Aug. 3 (/P). — Madeline Braniff Branson is legally married to Fred P. .Branson, former chief justice of the Oklahoma Supreme Court, and is entitled to $250 a month support money, District Judge John B. Wilson held today. The decision climaxed a four-day hearing on the 47-year-old stenographer's suit for validation of her 1930 marriage to Branson, 59, and $500 a month for support. In her petition, she alleged Branson, now an oil man, was worth $250,000. Branson said he was "broke." Branson brought his bar ft safety deposit box into court today to support his contention that business reverses, together with the romantic affair with his former stenographer and a divorce settlement had dissipated his fortune. The deposit box contained only a few trinkets and a number of notes. Those signed by Branson were marked "paid" and those payable to Branson were marked "not a penny paid on them." Branson, both lawyer and witness, told the court Madeline ruined him. "financially and otherwise," by refusing his requests ."not to drag this case through Oklahoma courts." He testified yesterday the affair with her cost him $60,000 in 15 years, adding he had paid Eula Branson, his divorced wife, more than- $80,000 in a settlement.

"Persecution" by the new German government of Czechoslovakia was blamed today by a- coroner's jury for the plunge of the refugee \ mother and her two sons. The jury which heard the traffic testimony of the onc-e- wealthy husband and father, decided his wife "committed suicide while temporarily insane due to worry over being forced to leave her home in Czechoslovakia due- to persecution." Her distraught husband, testified at an inquest today his wife constantly talked of taking her life "and taking the babies with her." She had been despondent' since fleeing to the United States fonr weeks ago, he said, after being "more or less compelled to leave" their native land to find opportunities for the children. Nervous and broken, the slight Jewish father unfolded through an interpreter. Attorney Otto Oplatka, a story of having been "practically forced" to sell his million dollar business, the largest textile and clothing manufacturing plant in Czechoslovakia, for a song. "I practically gave it away to my oldest employes because I felt Hitler soon would seize it or order me to give it away," Langer testified. Slashed Wrists. No one in the hotel saw the plunge and the police said it was difficult to determine whether Mrs. Langer flung the youngsters out the window and jumped after them, or gathered them' in her arms and leaped. Her left wrist was slashed and a blood-stained razor blade was found in the hotel room. Witnesses on the street had divergent opinions about the order in which'the bodies fell, although Policeman Gonoude said it appeared to him the woman's body landed first, followed in an instant by the boys." Police, theorized the children had been sleeping and probably never knew of their doom. No outcries were heard. When Mrs. Langer registered at. the hotel she asked for "a nice airy room." The boys were seen in the lobby about G p. m. Later their mother took them out. all three re turning about 10 p. m. On the way to their room she told the elevator operator: "The boys are tired; they are going to see their dad in the morning." Stunned by the tragedy, his unfamiliarity with the English language adding to his anguish, Langer was taken to Central Police Station by sympathetic officers. He clutched his throat as In gave a statement, with the aid of an interpreter and friends. Then the police placed him in '< cell because, they said, they foarec City Submits W.P.A.

A contemplated project to be cosponsored by the city and county is the proposed Northern avenue new street which it is estimated would employ GO men. controversial amendments. Senator Murray (D-Mont) gave notice of an attempt to knock out the 18- month furlough rule in the present relief law. Senator Schwellenbach (D-Wash) said leaders might find it "extremely difficult" to get a final vote on the deficiency bill if he and others were thwarted in their efforts to bring up a resolution giving the La Follette civil liberties committee $50,000 to contiivie its inquiry into industrial labor relationships. Rejection of the housing bill was the third decisive setback for the Administration in the House this week, following major slashes in the deficiency bill and the death of the main lending measure. The action occasioned little surprise, for leaders knew that the same coalition was lined up against it. There were reports, however, that President Roosevelt wanted TO fix the responsibility for its defeat. Voting against consideration of the housing bill were 137 Republicans and 54 Democrats. Eight Republicans and three minor party members joined 1DO Democrats in supporting it. It was a freshman Democrat. ?,1- year-ohl Rop. Albert A.

He said, sorrowfully, that since they arrived in this country she was despondent and "constantly talking about wanting to commit suicide and also to take the children with her^' A relative of the dead woman, Hermine Weil, told reporters: "I think the thought of having to leave this country and being without a home made her (Mrs. Langer) lose her mind."

April 15 President Roosevelt ordered the United States fleet back to the Pacific coast after several months in Atlantic waters)'. The Prime Minister went on to say that he hoped nobody would assume it was impossible for-a situation to arise requiring the dispatch of a fleet to the Orient. "At the same time," he said, "we iild much rather settle our differences with the Japanese by discussion and negotiation, provided we can do so without sacrificing what we conceive to be fundamental onsiderations and principles, than to do it by threats of force." He said the use of force would imperil British subjects in Japanese- controlled areas of China and this lad been taken into consideration. "Even if we determine tomorrow that we were going to the last extremity we could not perhaps protect those people — we certainly could not protect many of them," he continued.

In addition about 20,000 Britons live in the British crown colony of Hong- <ong, off the South China coast.)

Phone 2352 Big Defense Program Contrasts With Fight On Foreign Policy Congressional Leaders Regard Ruefully Unsolved Questions Of Foreign Policy To Confront Them In January. WASHINGTON, Aug. 4, (£>). — President Roosevelt's program for. the greatest expansion of Amerigan defenses since the World War days was enacted by the Congress now nearing adjournment, but leaders regarded ruefully today the unsolved questions of foreign policy which will confront them in January.- .. The dozen or so principal enactments of this session dealing di-' rectly with, foreign affairs involved no decision, on the basic questions dividing Congress and the President: ^ How far should the government go in protecting American, interests abroad and in cooperating with other nations in seeking to safeguard world peace? Should the sale of arms to warring nations be permitted? An exception to the foreign policy discord was the sign of agreement among some leaders of both parties on the Administration's sudden and unexpected notice cancelling tha 1911 commercial tr-eaty with Japan. This action clears the way for Congressional debate on an embargo against the shipment to Japan of raw materials aiding that nation in its undeclared war ou China. Thus, unless an European explosion should bring a call for a special session ia the meantime, Congress in January will face the two momentous issues of the Japanese embargo and revision of the Neutrality law. From leading Senators of both parties Mr. Roosevelt has extracted the promise that neutrality legislation will be released from the Foreign Relations Committee and take its place among the very-first subjects debated when Congress reconvenes. The committee declined to send the legislation to the Senate floor this year after the House defied administration wishes and retained a modified embargo against the sale of arms to warring nations. The warm reception given the President's defense recommendations was in contrast with the cold shoulder turned to some other proposals. With hardly a murmur of criticism. Congress provided for these military reinforcements: A tripled army air force of 5,500 or more planes; new guns, tanks and other weapons costing ?110,000,000; a string of air bases and depots on the continent, on offshore islands, and in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and in the Canal Zone; more than a score of new warships, including two 45,000 ton battleships that may be the world's largest. Other arms reinforcements include measures to- strengthen the Panama Canal, to train 95,000 college youths as air pilots within the next five years, and to start acquisition of a reserve stock ol imported minerals and other materials vital in wartime. A measure was approved only yesterday providing a third set of locks for the Panama Canal estimated to cost $277,000,000. Minor differences between House and Senate versions of the bill remain to be adjusted. In carrying out the administration defense recommendations, however, congressional opposition was voiced on several occasions to the President's course in foreign relations. There was a flareup in Congress over the permission given French war ministry officials to view a new warplane which the Army had shown an interest in acquiring. Then, in voting funds for a dozen new air and other bases for the Navy, Congress rejected plans for one ou the far eastern island of Guam in the belief this might create trouble with Japan. Congress was harsh toward one- plan to strengthen bonds with Latin American neighbors. First the Senate whittled the $500,000,000 Mr, Roosevelt asked for loans through the export-import bank, and then the House killed the entire project with the lending bill. From another bill it struck out, on the ground of economy, a combined total oE $-121,330 for various means to promote better hemisphere relations. Administration leaders breathed easier when the resolution for a popular referendum before war could be declared failed to gain headway. They were pleased, too, at the general congressional acceptance ot the President's thesis that national defense involved the secur- itv of the entire hemisphere.

This summer has seen more initial-writing by Capitol visitors than in nny year the guides can remember. Few places had escaped. Christopher Columbus has been scrawled on. George Washington has got the works. The inside or the Capitol rlome looks like a pencil factory after a hurricane. The stone columns on the portico . . . the monorail train between the Senate and Senate office building—both have been liberally written upon. Even hallowed Statuary Hall has not escaped. Charwomen are called on weekly to wash names and initials 1'rom the feet and legs of the marble generals and statesmen. Guides try to discourage the authors, but there's so much writing going on that they have not. been able to deter them appreciably. Love is the principal theme. ".IHK loves Virginia" adorns thr. wall of the diplomatic gallery in the Senate. "TJ? and MVV"—encircled by an off-center heart—is one of the many exhibits on the House side.
