June 1. up\— Tine •vifMbllity that, 15-year-old William Webster Thcile. piano-playing son if a financier nnd a direct descendent of Daniel Webster, ran away from home May 3 to seek an entertainer's career was investigated by police nnd private detectives today. Police expressed belief the boy may have found employment as an entertainer in some obscure night spot, nnd checked a rumor among his former schoolmates at Bye Country Bay school that he had written to n friend lie had obtained an $18-a-week job. Both officers and Mr. and Mrs. William Theile. who live on a private island in Long Island sound, near Mamaroneck, N. Y., discounted the possibility the boy had been kidnaped. A family spokesman said no ransom demands had been received. The boy. large for his age. was a versatile athlete. "I have no worry as to his being able to take care of himself," said the father who is president of the Atlantic Investing Corp., and the Catnlin corporation of America. "He is almost as big ns I am." The boy, with about $40, including his S15 monthly allowance, snv- ings and money from selling his ichoolbooks at 30 cents each to schoolmates, disappeared after saying he was going to keep a tennis- playing engagement with a friend. The Theilcs had communicated with relatives in Fort Stockton, Texas. Los Angeles and Detroit on the chance the boy had gone there, but they had no word of him. Lindsly Kills Self To Prevent Being Captured ANGOLA. Ln., June 1 (ft>)— A series of five violent deaths, including the climactic suicide of a 23- year old life termer, Wilfred Lindsly, was marked up today to Lindsly's murderous escape last Wednesday from a prison farm. A bullet into his heart from his own gun was the youth's "escape' yesterday from a posse that sought him for the killing of a prison cap- tuin and the officer's wife. Lindsly was cornered in a ravine Bullets from possemen's guns were ripping through the brush close to him when Lindsly took one last shot at his pursuers and then turned the gun on himself. Lindsly had been sentenced for murdering Stanley Couvlllon in Baton Rouge in 1931 because of a quarrel over a girl. He was made a trusty house servant to Prison Captain N. J. Hlmel. Last Wednesday he slashed Mvs. Klniel to death as she bathed in her home and then killed Himel with the captain's own gun. (Continued From Page 1) (Continued From Page 1) The liner arrived at quarantine at 8:10 a. m. (C. S. T.), where the official welcoming- party in behalf of Mayor Fiorello La Guardia readied the vessel. The committee was headed by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler and Samuel Seabury. The British consul general. Sir Gerald Campbell, also went down the bay in the special cutter with the welcomers to board the Queen. The delay in docking was due not only to the welcoming ceremonies, but to the heavy load of mail carried by the liner. An official comparison of the times of the Queen Mary and the Normandie was not immediately available. The comparison was further complicated by the fact that the Queen Mary's crossing was measured from Cherbourg breakwater to Ambrose, while the crossing of the Normandie was measured from Bishop's Rock light, at the entrance of the English channel, to Ambross, 193 nautical miles shorter. At the office of the Cunard line. It was stated the Queen Mary, after leaving Cherbourg breakwater at 6:35 p. m., (C. S. T.) last Wednesday, passed Bishop's Rock light at 12:17 a. m. (C. S. T. Thursday. On this basis, it took the Queen Mary 4 clays. 6 hours and 38 minutes from Bishop's Rock to Ambrose. The Normandie's record for thu same distance was four days, 3 hours, 13 minutes and 38 seconds. The welcoming of the new liner began as soon as she passed the lightship. Three U. S. army planes In formation flaw over the ship, 'vlth other planes circling about as the Queen slowed down to take on the pilot at the entrance to the channel. Mmiy small craft let go with !"ov~.s and whistles as an echo tc Uie Queen Mary's call for the pilot —three blasts from its deep horn. The pasfongers aboard lined the decks to wave greetings to the welcoming craft, although they had pome hours before lost hope of a new record. «»*. (Continued From Page 1) Mrs. B. L.

(IP) —Frances oldest, deputy, Antoine Salles, 70, warned his colleagues today of war dangers as he opened the chamber session. "Peace," said Salles, "never appeared more precarious or more in peril. Nations are feverishly preparing armaments. "Throughout Europe sounds, louder than the cries of millions of hungry and Jobless, the sinister noise of factories forging diabolical machines intended to vomit fire and poison death on defenseless populations." Former Premier Eclouard lien-lot ^announced himself as a candidate for the presidency of the chamber. His election would automobilically make it impossible for him to be a member of the next cabinet. After Salles had completed his opening address, suffragist leaders in the galleries opened long banners on which were emblazoned the words, "Women must vote!" While leftist deputies applauded, a bailiff hurried to the galleries and tore un the banners and posters. Other functionaries 'escorted the women from the chamber.

'Garden Homes* Program To Be A New Project WASHINGTON, June 1 W)—The Federal Housing administration to•day explained a new program calling for tTie construction of thousands of "garden homes' 'in semi- rural areas. Officials expressed hope that under it private interests would take over a major housing problem—how to provide moderately-priced homes for low income classes. Reported to have the endorsement of President Roosevelt .the plan was said by Housing Administrator Stewart McDonald to call for the establishment of industrial workers in areas several' miles outside large cities. These homes, McDonald said, would be situated on one to two acres of land. The home owners would raise produce for their own use, he said, and would have the advantages of country life plus the conveniences of the city. The program was described as "a business proposition," with the government acting only as an insuring agent for the home mortgages. In the past, McDonald said, lenders have been reluctant to go into the semi-rural field. He expressed confidence, however, that private capital would flow out for this type of construction if the home mortgages were insured.

PENSION LEADER JOINS FORCES WITH GERALD L. K. SMITH ALLENTOWN, Pa., June 1. Dr. Francis E. Townsend and the Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith, head of the Share-the-Wealth clubs founded by the late Senator Huey P. Long, have joined forces "against the dictatorship in Washington," against "Communism .and Farley- Ism." Mr. Smith and Dr. -Townsend, leader of the old age pension movement bearing his name, pledged themselves In a handshake before a public gathering yesterday to a "united front" until "this emergency has been met, until our victory has been won." Although neither specified the manner in which they would collaborate. Mr. Smith promised the aid of the Share-the-Wealth clubs in the Townsend cause. He described other "movements" as "synthetic and artificial" and said only three favored "true democracy, . . . the one led by Dr. Townsend, the one led by the spirit of Huey Long and the third, that movement fostered by Father Coughlin (the Rev. • Charles E. Coughlin)." Mr. Smith told the meeting, sponsored by Townsend clubs in Bucks and Lehigh counties, he had promised Senator Long, before his death, to "carry on with someone for these poor suffering millions of Americans." . ; "In this emergency," he said, "I' stand beside my friend," Dr. Townsend, "this venerable Moses' of America." Before coming here from Philadelphia Saturday, Mr. Smith said he and Dr. Townsend "stood under the historic arch in Valley Forge and vowed to take over the government." .' Dr. Townsend predicted passage of his pension plan at the next session of Congress is inevitable, and the two men claimed a total of 10,000,000 persons backing them— 4,000,000 in Townsend clubs 'and 6,000,00 "in tire Huey Long units." "Our leader was assassinated," Mr. Smith said, "and Dr. Townsend is being persecuted by a despotic Congress. The time is ripe'for a middle-class cohesion, and we're only the instruments in this movement." ' . ^»i — The News' Want-Ads bring mralUL I Round 'Em Up! Ride 'Em Up! Clean 'Em Up! . Block 'Em Up!
