More Indictments •^'There will be many more Annenberg indictments." District Attor- niy William J. Campbell told reporters later. He declined to amplify the remark "but said the grand jury which made a two-month inquiry into Annenberg-'s income was "still considering other Annenberg phases" and would resume its sessions next Monday. 'At that time, he added, the jurors would begin a study of the income taxes of William R. "Billy" Skidmore, wealthy junk dealer who has been, listed by State's Attorney Thomas J. Courtney as one of the : "bosses of the Chicago gambling "syndicate."

CHAPMAN IS TOP ENEMY Texas Bad Man Listed As Public Criminal No. 1 By G-Men. NEW YORK, Aug. 12.—Irving Charles Chapman, a little Texas bad man with cold blue eyes, a tic in his trigger finger and 16 aliases, was designated by the Department of Justice Friday as the new public enemy No. 1. In a.list of the country'• 10 most sought missing men, issued by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in connection with the government's current .nationally-coordinated anti- crime campaign, Charlie's name led all the rest. Louis (Lepke) Buchaltor, termed by Thomas E. Dewey, New York county district attorney, the most dangerous industrial racketeer at large, had the relatively obscure fourth place on this government roster of the infamous. All ten fugitives, Federal agents said privately, were believed under the protection of a national syndicate suspected of harboring criminals as an organized business. Data concerning this supposed organization are being presented to an extraordinary Federal Grand Jury convened here to act as the informational clearinghouse and headquarters for the national activities of government agents. Chapman's criminal record goes back only to 1931, a relatively short one for a man of 41, but his career since then already has brought prison sentences aggregating 85 years. Convicted of participation In an Atlanta, Tex., bank robbery in 1936 in which he was shot and captured, he was sentenced to 60 years, the FBI said, and subsequently given 25 years for a Red River County, Texas, kidnaping about which details were lacking here. In July, 1937, he escaped from the Texas State Penitentiary with eight other prisoners. • He is stocky—about five feet, seven inches tall and weighing around 150 pounds—and both sides of his face are scalloped with knife scars near the eyes.

A vocal solo, "Jesus Loves Me," was sung in the African language by Vernon Stockslager; Jacqueline and Ruby Wills rendered a vocal duet, "Wonderful Words of Life," and a recitation, "The Wind," was given by Dawn Weller. Rev. Dr. L D. Worman, Leitersburg, gave an address, in which he spoke- of the significance of such a gathering as the one being held in the park. Dr. Worman said he thought of such a reunion as a unit and as an occasion for everybody to get acquainted with each other. Rev. Harry Young, Funkstown, was also a speaker of the afternoon. Special music was rendered by an Instrumental trio—Bob Benson and His Prairie Ramblers. Honors went to Newton Warrenfeltz as the oldest man, Mrs. Salome M.

Stockslager, says ttiat his father was John Stockslager, born in Germany, January 8, 1783 and who died May 27, 1883, aged 100 years. Mrs. Salome M. Neff, this city, mentioned as having received a prize for being the oldest of th^e clan attending the reunion, comes in for special notice as having been the wife of Albert C. Neft and was the daughter of John and Mary (Thomas) Stockslager. John Neff and Albert C. Neff were the first to successfully cultivate and raise cantaloupes in this section. They found out that the soil In their fields along the Little Antietam was peculiarly adapted to the raising of watermelons and cantaloupes, as well as sweet potatoes. They grew watermelons that weighed 46 pounds and cantaloupes weighing 21 pounds each, something quite unusual in this part of the country. The Neff farm was long known as the "Watermelon Farm."
