THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., TUESDAY, AUGUST 8, 1939, 'ELSIE' BACK WITHtiRCUS Fugitive Elephant Lured Back Into Captivity With Russell Bros. Show. Two-ton Elsie, fugitive circus elephant, was lured back into captivity yesterday after a-safari o 200 police and country folk had stalked her through the foothills o the Blue Ridge Mountains near Staunton, Va., for a day and a half Elsie, footsore and hungry, had plodded through the forests'south of Staunton for 33^ hours' since escaping from a wrecked, trailer belonging to the Russell Bros. Circus, which showed here last Thursday. She walked quietly from the woods with two fellow pachyderms by her side. They had been freed to entice her from her hideout. Fright engendered by the wreck that killed a circus attendant and another elephant was gone when the fugitive found her mates, and she quickly was loaded on to another trailer and started on the way to Roanoke, Va., where the circus is showing. The two elephants whose presence induced Elsie to surrender had been chained in the vicinity, a half mile north of Mint Spring and a short distance west of Route 11, since early morning, but when this failed to attract Elsie trainers decided to liberate them for the decisiA r e attempt. She came back just like any good circus elephant, ready to eat her peanuts. But it was an exciting night and day while it lasted. After the •lephant had hidden away Sunday ftnd Sunday night, trampled fences and possibilities of greater damage aroused authorities to new methods. An airplane was brought Into service and Elsie soon was •potted not far from where the tractor-drawn trailer, from which •he escaped, had gone into a ditch. The hunters picked up the trail •ml followed her for or five miles • cross country. They didn't get too close, however, because Elsie turned upon three of her more daring pursuers and chased, them up a tree. From then on it was a waiting game until the fugitive decided the jig was up. • Murray Franklin, with Beckley of the MomUnin State league, had the highest batting average ,in the minor loagne last year.

Payroll Civil Employes Of Government Placed At 925,260 During June. WASHINGTON, Aug. S.—Officials reported Monday that the number of civil '.mployes in the Executive civil employes in the Executive branch of the Government reached the highest point in history'during June and that Congress during the session just ended appropriated $260,937,376 «iore than the President budgeted. The Civil Service Commission placed the number of civil em- ployes in June at 925,260. The figure compared with 919,161 last December when the extra Postal workers were employed, and with a war-time peak estimated at !)18,000. It included administrative em- ployes paid with works program funds, but not rauk-and-file WPA workers. Employment for the month showed "the usual seasonal increase," the commission said. The Budget Bureau reported, meantime, that Congress had appropriated $10,472,354,914 for the current fiscal year, which it said Avas $2(50,437,376 more than the budget estimate. In addition, it said the legislators had appropriated $1,013,582,439 for deficiencies of previous years._ The budget estimate for the present fiscal year, which the bureau said had been, exceeded by Congress, did not include President Roosevelt's proposed lending program, which as first put in bill form, called for an outlay of $2,800..000..000. This item was omitterl from the budget estimate on the ground that it would have been financed by RFC, rather than Treasury, borrowing. Both Democratic and Republican leaders in Congress have estimated the session's appropriations at sums different from that given by the Budget Bureau. ' Senator Barkley of Kentucky, the Deni»cratis leader, said yesterday that the total was less than $10,000,000,000 not in- cludiug reappropriatiotts of money appropriated previously but still unspent; while Rep. Taber (R., N. Y.) said the lawmakers had appropriated $14,061,598.619, which he called the greatest sum in peacetime history. The Budget Bureau's total of 1.940 appropriations was exclusive of contract authorizations, reappro- priatious, unexpended balances and other funds made available for spending. In its report on employment in the executive branch during June, the Civil Sen-ice Commission said the number of civil employes had increased 22.14S from May and that the payroll had gone up $3.731,534 to a June total of $140,140.533.
