Night Club Revelers Scor- ; ed In Damage Suit Filed In Kansas. " WICHITA, Kas., Aug. 17.—Ua"' troni of a night club in traditlon- -,«.lly dry Kansas were pictured to. day in a civil damage suit as "ca" verting cavemen," "pre-historic playboys" and "circus clowns." . The description was given by an •'.awning manufacturer in answering •a suit resulting from collapse of a .canopy at a McPherson night club. • • The defendant asserted the can- ;cpy was constructed "in good and workmanlike manner" suitable for '"a place of decorous and decent •amusement" and had been weaken;ed by customers of the club who climbed and swung on' its frame"work. ; "On the night the club opened," ills answer said, "more than 20 cases of whisky were sold and consumed on the said premise * * * "The results produced on the customers indicated this was not sing- Ing or vocal whisky, neither was it "wildcat or fighting whisky, but by the actions of the customers was proven to be squirrel whisky. "The canopy was built to withstand the ordinary wear and tear of civilized occupancy but not to meet the stress and strain of cavort- In^, cavemen, circus clowns and toloseal celebrations of pre-historic playboys." The awning maker pointed out officers had raided the club and arrested its operator. Since the Japanese abhor fat men, other nations must avoid pending corpulent diplomats to jTokyo, " .

STORE "A GUY YOU CAN'T SHOVE" BOSSES OUR FLEET IN ASIA By CLAYTON J. IRWIN ANNAPOLIS, Md., Aug. 17 (£>).— A "peppery gort of fellow" and " not a guy who can be pushed around"—that's how Annapolis remembers Admiral Thomas C. Hart, now in command of the United States Asiatic fleet, succeeding his 1S97 Naval Academy classmate, Admiral Harry E. Yarnell. Admiral Hart served as superintendent of the Naval Academy from 1931 to 1934. Annapolitans recall that he was able to say "no" frequently, even when it didn't endear him to the natives. They remember his unconcealed dislike for a polite gesture required for years of academy superintendents, the formal request, by letter, to the mayor for permission to march midshipmen through An- •napolis stfeets on their way to big football games. The mayor of Annapolis, at the time, worked as a clerk in the superintendent's office. Admiral Hart made no effort to hide the fact that the request business was distasteful to him. Opposed Graduate School On another occasion, he was outspoken againt a proposed harbor improvements because he felt it would not be of value to. the academy. Again, he opposed the retention of the graduate school at Annapolis. This was a blow to the landlords, restaurateurs and operators of amusement places. But the Admiral and Mrs. Hart left many pleasant impressions. Mrs. Hart, daughter of a former superintendent of the academy, was one. of the institution's most gracious hostesses. The Harts' daughter and three sons were popular with both the naval group and townsmen. Admiral Thomas C. Hart "A peppery sort of fellow . . ." A native of Genesee county, Michigan, the Navy's No. 1 man in the Far East was listed as a Republican at the academy. During prohibition, he expressed opposition to repeal. His active duty with the Navy has included service with the submarine force of the Pacific fleet, as submarine division commander in the World War, as submarine commander of the Asiatic fleet and as commander of cruisers in the scouting force. For the last two years he has served as chairman of the Navy's general board, a policy - forming group of senior officers. Youthful Hero Is Victim Of Burns CRISFIELD, Md., Aug. 17 (£>).— Eugene Martin, 12-year old boy hero of the Chesapeake, died last night of burns suffered yesterday when he aelped rescue seven "women and three men from the blazing Virginia Fisheries patrol boat Richard . Armstrong. Young Martin, crabbing with his father, went to the Armstrong's aid and was showered with blazing gas when the fisheries boat's gas tank exploded as the Martins were pulling away with the rescued party. Parson Martin, his father, Capt. Herbert Drummond of the Armstrong and Prentiss Bull, a pass- nger aboard the Armtsrong, also were burned. They remained in the hospital but were reported recovering. The Martins and those rescued lived at Saxis, "Va. MODERN PROSPECTOR. FAIRBAIKS, Alaska (£>).—Dan S. MacDonald prospects in modern style. He heard about those tourist-trailer homes and built one for himself. Then he got a utility tractor to haul it and set out with a placer drill for the Innoko river flats. OWL'S MISTAKE.
