THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 1939. THREE TORNADO HITS IN MICHIGAN One Dead With Property Damage High In The Thousands. DETROIT, Aug. 9 .(£*)—A tornado roared through western and central Michigan Tuesday killing one man and injuring an'undetermined number of persons while demolishing homes and buildings. Winds of crushing force, springing up after sultry heat, swept across Kalamazoo and Kent counties, then struck to the northeast to lay waste to property in Midland county. Lester Baker, 31, of Scotts, ten miles southeast of Kalamazoo, was killed when a greennouse in which he was at work collapsed under the blow. Mrs. Gus Liudell of Coin- stock, village near Kalamaxoo, suffered critical injuries when her home was wrecked. Glimpsing an approaching cloud which resembled "the black funnel of a tornado," Miss Ruth Holland fled into the basement of her home in the same area. Moments later the walls toppled, but she was unhurt. Near Midland, a riding stable housing seven horses was demolished. Tour horses were injured. Sue Smith, 29, operator of the stable with her brother, Raymond, and Alvin Gillett, 20, employe, escaped serious injury when their house was picked up and dropped to earth 100 feet distant with them inside.

Miss Rogers in the role of a department store sales girl displays her flair for comedy which she recently employed in "Vivacious Lady" and 'Stage Door.' 1 Niveri's characterization as an ulamaut store executive is a refreshing departure from his roles in "Wuthering Heights" and "Dawn Patrol.' A hilarious mix-up over . baby forms the axis about which 'Bachelor Mother" revolves. Holding a tempora.. job in the store during the Christmas rush, Miss Rogers—on her lunch hour—finds an infant on the steps oC a foundling home, and is instantly mistaken for the child's mother. 30 Stars in "March of Time" Thirty famous stars and scenes from 24 of the greatest movie films ever produced are seen in the latest March of Time film.

ERROL FLYNN AT ACADEMY THEATRE IN "DODGE CITY' Errol Flynn comes to the screen of the Academy Theatre today in a role that is, on the surface, altogether unlike any he has ever played before, for he is the straight-shooting hero of "Dodge City," a film about the period when the little Kansas town of that name was the roughest and wickedest community of the old west. Produced by Warner Bros, in Technicolor, "Dodge City" is a spirited and authentic re-creation of those hectic days in the ISTO's when the coining of the railroad to the little town at the northern end of the fumed Chisholm Trail made it the loading cattle shipping center of that era.

McLaglen, nofr-d for (he rugged ehamotorizations he enncts for the cameras, appears as a broken- down, ex-champion prizefighter, proud of two possessions. They are a championship holt and a. worthless, snobbish sou who disdains his father's homo and his rough-ami- tough associates. Although "K.v-Champ" has an atmosphere of the boxing ring and training quarters, it cannot "wholly be regarded as a prize-fight story.

WASHINGTON", Aug. 9.—Senator George (D-Ga) spoke out Tuesday against a third term for President Roosevelt and demanded a "prompt settlement'' of the issue. Shortly before leaving for his home at Vienna, Ga., the Senator, whom President Roosevelt tried vainly to unseat last year, asserted that he opposed the tliird term "under any circumstances or conditions." "The course followed by the great and patriotic leaders of the past against the third term for any President and under any conditions is wise and right—not only in normal times but especially in abnormal times, times of upheav- el and chaos in political thought and action. "The prompt settlement of this issue in line with' the examples set by great statesmen and patriots of the past will substantially serve the best interests of the Democratic Party and the country." He declined to' enlarge on this statement. Apparently, however, he meant that President Roosevelt shoujd not wait any longer to state his intentions for 19-10. Summing up the session which adjourned Saturday, George listed the rejection of the President's Lending Bill as one "notable accomplishment of the TGth Congress. "This program," he said, "would have added more .than five billion dollars to the indirect national debt. The defeat of this measure is primarily important because it marks the beginning of the end of spending for pump-priming purposes and reasserts the power of the Congress over the nation's purse." EVERYTHING THE SAME BUT THEIR RELATIVES ELMCREEK, Neb., Aug. 9 (£>,.— Miss Maxine Samuelson of Elm- creek became curious, about Miss Maxine Samuelson of Axtell because of their names.. The girls arranged a meeting and discovered they both are 18 years old, seniors in high school, are blondes with blue eyes and have birthdays on February 21. They live in adjoining counties and are not related.
