Y., Aug. 14. (JP).—Speaking through pulp-bruised lips, Phyllis Raymond told today the nightmare horror of a midnight assault by her crazed inventor father, who tried to bludgeon her to death with a hammer- after fatally hacking her mother. The father, Ralph Raymond, 58, wealthy telephone engineer, climaxed his fit of madness by slashing his throat with a razor in a locked bathroom of his palatial 14-room, home. He died several hours later in a hospital without regaining consciousness. His 29-year-old attractive daughter was still so critically weak from 14 hammer blows on the head and face officials had difficulty in getting a coherent account. "The house is blood from top to bottom," said Rockland County District Attorney George V. Dorsey. "Even a room in the attic was all blood-smeared, and the trail ran through half a dozen rooms and down the stairs." Dorsey said the daughter told him she awakened early Sunday on a second-floor sleeping porch when her bald, bespectacled father, clad in a long nightgown, entered and began beating her with a hammer. She fled to the upstairs living room and saw her mother there staggering and bleeding from throat wounds made with a 14-inch butcher knife later found clutched in Raymond's hand when police broke into the bathroom. Dorsey said that after the fren zied assault on the two women Raymond locked himself in an up stairs bathroom, turned on the water in the bathtub and attempted to commit suicide by cutting his throat and wrists with a straightedge razor. Dorsey said he still held the 14-inch cleaver in one hand Police summoned by neighbors, who reported hearing women's screams for 15 minutes, broke in the bathroom and found Raymond unable to give a coherent account of the episode. "The Raymond's 14-room house is blood from top to bottom," Dorsey said. "Even a -oom in the attic was all blood-smeared and the trail ran through half a dozen rooms and down the stairs." As police investigated the slaying, John Raymond, 30, a son, returned home from what he described as an outing on Staten Island. He was unable to give any explanation for the tragedy. i His wounded sister, recovering consciousness for a few minutes in the hospital, shook her head blankly at all questions. "Father had blood on his hands," she whispered several times, and then relapsed into a coma. GERMAN PROPAGANDA ATTACKED BY PRESS London, Aug. 13 C/P) — Several British newspapers told their readers today there would be no war this year and charged that intensified German propaganda and military activity was merely a part of a "war of nerves" intended to force another "Munich." One newspaper, the Left-Wing Reynolds News, alleged that Prime Minister Chamberlain was "ready for a sell-out over Poland, and might call another conference, if tension reached the proper intensity, similar to the meeting last year at Munich which led to the dismemberment of Czecho-Slovakia. Crack Streamliner Wrecked In Nevada This is the diesel-powered streamlined train City of San Francisco, which plunged from the rails in a mountain canyon northeast of Reno, Nevado, causing the death of Vat least nineteen passengers and injury to scores of others. The modern, eleven-car train, capable of traveling 100 m.p.h., went into service in 1936 between San Francisco and Chicago and was hailed as the fastest and most luxurious train in the world.

NAZIS SERVE ULTIMATUM (Continued from Page 1) unconditional cession of Danzig to the Reich — then the European powder barrel may explode, the commentary said. •• The Doplomatische observed that in supporting "a power which continuously in provoking and hating the German Reich and people," (meaning Poland) the western democracies also are "touching the honor and the selt-respect of the axis partner." "Danzig has truly become the symbil for the stubbornness and narrow - mindedness of powers which keep saying that they are ery much concerned about a wealthy development of European conditions," it declared. Authoritative German quarters acknowledged today for the first time that Prof. Carl J. Burckhardt, ^eague of Nations commissioner 'or Danzig, was in Berchtesgaden ast week to see Hitler. They would not disclose the na- ure of Buckhardt's talk with the Fuehrer. Hitler, it was stated, still plans o attend the celebration on August 27 at Tanneberg.East Prussia, commemorating the 25th anniver- ary of Hindenburg's and Luden- dorff's victory over the Russians n the World war. A government spokesman was asked whether it was likely that Danzig would be German before hen. His reply was a shrug of the shoulders. . It colud not be learned here whether a "peace plan" by Premier Mussolini of Italy was under • discussion at the conferences between Hitter, Foreign Minister Galeazzo Ciano of Italy and German Foreign Minister Joachim Von Ribbentrop which ended yesterday. One prominent Nazi, however, who went to Salzburg for the Rome- Berlin axis talks, said that solutions of the greatest importance arid of world-wide repercussions were agreed upon. Foreign inquirers were warned not to take as official certain Italian press comments to the- effect that the axis partners wanted not only revision of the Treaty of Versailles but also other peace treaties concluded after the World War. At the same time- it was acknowledged that large World Wai- issues were at stake in the international discussions and plans now going on. An official source said "100 per cent agreement on all issues" was reached and that thare was no need for further talks. What was described as the "burning world problem" of Danzig was said to have been the the main theme of the talks at Salzburg and at Hitler's Berchtesgaden home.
