THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., MONDAY, AUGUST 7, 1939. THREE Polish Leader Warns Hitler Force Will Be Resisted By Force, Declares Mar. shall Smigly-Rydz. KRAKOW, Poland, Aug. 7 (£>).— Marshall Edward Smilgly-Rydz,. Commander of Poland's armed forces, told a tumultuously cheering crowd of 100,000 Sunday tbat "violence inflicted by force must be resisted by force." "Our conduct as regards Danzig," he said, "will be adjusted to the conduct of the other side." The slender military leader's address climaxed a gigantic celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Pilsudski legion's entry into the World War. Some political commentators called the speech an "eleventh-hour •warning" in vieAv of a serious customs disute with Danzig, which Germany aspires to repossess. The massive audience cried "we trant Danzig!" and interrupted frenquently with applause. The Marshall declared Poland •would "resist with all her means without exception any attempt, direct or indirect, to violate the interests, rights or dignity of our state." Without naming Britain and France, with whom Poland has mutual assistance agreements, he said it was his "pleasant duty to record with the deep -understanding and appreciation of a soldier that Poland has in. friends among other nations, nations who understand the real meaning of things and who have defined their attitude toward us." Foreign circles in Warsaw expressed belief that Poland was prepared to take direct action on the customs situation it the Danzig Senate's replay on the treatment of Polish customs inspectors proved unsatisfactory.

Tl\- AT r»aniii> Son-lr* 'IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU" SHOWING TODAY AND TUESDAY AT HENRY'S "It Could Happen to You," 20th Century-Fox's exciting, laughable comedy-thriller particularly expressing "how not to become a success," is showing today and Tuesday at Henry's Air Conditioned Theatre, bringing to the screen Stuart Envin and Gloria Stuart in amusing roles as hero and heroine —husband and Avife—in a story that may be your own. (We hope not.) Stuart Erwiu 'is seen as Mac Wilson, the hero of the film, a little slow on the trigger but very lovable and ambitious. His \vii'e. Miss Stuart, makes a very pretty partner with just enough ambition, too, to help her husband in his climb to success. However, a murdered woman in the back of hubby's car doesn't exactly enlighten matters any, from which point onward thrilling suspence alternates with stirring laughter as the wife attempts to track down'the killer to save hor husband in danger of his life. It is this very human-ness of the story, tragedy relieved by comedy, that makes the story so interesting and credible. Others seen in the film are Raymond Walburn, Douglas Fowley, June Gale and Paul Hurst. NEURITIS Negro Assailants Killed In Plunge BALTIMORE, Aug. 7.—A 40-year- old negro \vas fatally injured in a plunge from a third floor window of Podice Headquarters Sunday, a few minutes, detectives said, after he admitted a criminal assault on a 75- year-ol cl wornnn, Police Lieut.

The assault victim, Mrs. Marian Loockerman, is iu "fair" condition at Maryland General Hospital. The attack occurred while Mrs. Loock- ermau was alone at her home. DIXIE DAVIS WEDS ACTRESS Schultz Mob Mouthpiece Marries Hope Dare, Show Girl. NEW YORK, Aug. 7 (£>).—Dixie Davis, who courted Hope Dare while dodging the law and on brief leaves from jail over a hectic three- year period, was married to her Sunday by a police judge with two detectives as Avitnesses. Their goldfish-bowl romance, more widely publicized' 'than a glamor girl's and more closely chaperoned than a mid-Victorian's, was climaxed this morning in suburban Nyack, Rockland county, where they quietly obtained a license Friday under their correct names—Julius Davis and Julia Richter. & It devolved upon District Attorney Thomas E. Dewey's office, maintaining a protective guard over Davis, to disclose the wedding, which was attended by one of the detectives who arrested the disbarred rackets lawyer and his red- haired ex-showgirl sweetheart in a Philadelphia hideaway Feb. 2, 1938. A wedding trip for the couple— constantly guarded by detectives since Davis' completion last week of a jail term for policy racketeering as lawyer for the Dutch Schultz mob—was made impossible by a court order requiring Davis to remain available to Federal Grand Jury in the southern district of New York. From the time that Davis was discovered in Philadelphia until he completed his jail term, he saw Miss Dare many times. Defense counsel at the policy racket trial of ex-Tammany District Leader James J. Hines, against whom Davis was a star witness, charged that Davis was permitted to visit her apartment, though he was nominally a prisoner in the tombs, as an inducement for him to turn state's evidence.
