TWENTY THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, Shutdown One Of Most Widespread Curtailments Ever Attempted OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 17 (2p). Shutdown of oil wells in six state's! one of the most widespread curtailments of raw materials ever attempted ,took approximately 70 per cent of the nation's crude supply from the market today. The "shut down strike" in Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico had its genesis in a series of price cuts by purchasing companies. Affected were 1770,833 wells producing 3,- 356.SOO barrels daily. State regulatory bodies had no reports o£ wells producing in violation of orders. Each state has statutes which permit closing well to conserve natural resources. Th "ace in the hole" is the Connallj "hot oil" law prohibiting interstate shipment of oil violation of scat orders. Fears there would be widespread unemployment, faded as surveys and company announcements indi cated less than 10 per cent of the 200,000-odd workers in the Mid continent Field would be tempor arily discharged. The others wil be given vacations, half-pay or wil machinery. 'Demon Slayer' Gets Reprieve Trapper Will Be 29th Utah Slayer To Face Firing Squad. . BALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 17, (/P). —If and when Trapper George Hayes, Tooele county "demon slayer," is executed he will be the twenty-ninth Utah murderer to face a firing squad. Hayes was to be strapped into a chair and shot to death in the Utah State prison tomorrow at dawn, but a last-minute reprieve by Governor Henry H. Blood gave him at least a month more of life. In 33 previous executions all but five condemned men chose the bullet in preference to hanging. Utah law, unique in the United States, permits selection of either execution method. If the slayer indicates no preference it's up to the court Hayes, 54, a strapping half-breed Indian, was convicted of binding Sherman Cadwell, 71-year-old desert prospector, into a chair in his mountain cabin, then firing a bullet into his head. Cadwell's radio, Hayes averred, sent out strange noises and "demons" that kept him awake at sight The last person to be hanged was John J. Morris, described as perhaps the state's hardest criminal. Morris was convicted in 1912 of slaying Joseph Walter Axtell in downtown Salt Lake City. Asked to make his choice, the rope or bullets, Morris replied: "Which will cost the state the most?" Told hanging would be more expensive, Morris sneered: "Then.I'll hang."

RKNNER DIES AT HOSPITAL Young Clerk Was Unconscious More Than Fourteen Days. Earl McC. Renner, 30, 700 block West Washington street, who was rushed to the Washington County Hospital 14 days ago in an unconscious condition, died last night at 9:15 o'clock. Renner, an employe of the Peoples Drug Company store on West Washington street, never fully regained consciousness and an autopsy was ordered by Medical Examiner Samuel R. Wells to determine the cause of death. An investigation launched by police several days after Rentier was taken to the hospital shed little light on the cause of Rentier's condition. It was learned, however, that he was found slumped over a stove in the kitchen of his home. He is survived by his wife, Helen; children, Peggy, Beverly Ann and Earl, Jr.; parents, Mr. ano Mrs. George Renner; sister, Helen, and brother, George, Jr., all of this city. The body was removed to his home, 745 West Washington street where funeral services will be held at 2:30 p. m. Saturday by the Revs. G. I. Rider and Roy Sloop.

Room 407 Dog Must Sign To Get Inheritance BALTIMORE, Aug. 17 <7P).— These are dog days in Maryland legal circles—the Jaw says, a little lapdog named Flossie must get a registered letter and sign for it, but doesn't say how. John H. Bouse, register of wills in Baltimore City, sees Ms duty but doesn't know how to do it and he prepared today to toss the Flossie cause celebre into the lap of State's Attorney William C. Walsh for an official decision. Flossie was the devoted companion of Mrs. Mary R. Herman, who died and in her will set up a $2.000 trust fund to insure the care of her pet. But Maryland probate law specifies the register of -wills must advise any legatee by registered mail of his legacy, and the legatee must sign for the letter. Bouse can think of only two solutions: Maybe a guardian can be appointed with powers to sign for Flossie's mandatory mail, or Flossie's paw print on th e receipt may be accepted for her "X." Bouse won't make a move until he gets an official opinion— meanwhile, Flossie is staying with friends until her dog-biscuit funds come out of litigation. (Continued from Pagb 1) malion about the policies of the Bund, which he has headed since its formation. Headed Subscription Drive Alluding to a trip which Kuhn and other Bund officials made to Germany in 1936, Whitley brought up the fact that Kuhn had headed a subscription drive which raised $3,000 in this country for German winter relief. Kuhn had testified that he delivered this money in person to Adolf Hitler. After Kuhn had agreed that many merabers of the Bund were unemployed and that, as American citizens, they were eligible for relief payments, Whitley demanded: "So some of your members contributed money that the United States government gave for relief to take over and turn over to Mr. Hitler for the winter relief fund in Germany?" The witness answered "yes," but almost immediately afterwards challenged this statement. "How do you know that?" he demanded. Before the stocky, heavy-accented witness resumed his testimony, one committee member told report- French Air Armada In'Raid'On England <J PARIS. Aug. 17 (/P).—More than 200 French bombers and fast sky fighters "raided" population centers of England last night in reciprocal British-French war plane tests and eturned to their bases today reporting all objectives had been cached. An air ministry communique said he planes "struck" at London. Liv- ^rpool, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Oxford. British anti-aircraft batteries vere entrained on the French raiders outside London. The communique emphasized hat the raid—the first made by he Trench following up British flights over France in July—was in cooperation with the British air orce which tested out its defenses against the invaders. "There is an inter-locking setup by which certain organizations reprint each other's propaganda, support each other's meetings, and cooperate to advance their common cause." Kuhn, talking with newspapermen after yesterday's hearing, said his examination had been "very fair," aside from a clash with Rep. Starnes (D-Ala) in which the two nearly came to blows. Starnes, a lieutenant in France in 19 IS, drew an outburst from Kuhn, a machine gunner on the other side of the lines, when he asked: "What connection have you with the German government?" "Absolutely no connection whatsoever," replied - Kuhn, who had been impassive and excited by turn during earlier questioning. Rochelle Hudson Weds Film Writer Mrs. Emma F. Houser, wife of Charles B.

Since our imagination is rathei limited in scope, we thought it al a lot of hooey, smart publicity copy designed to attract Elmer and Josh from the farm, Mike and Jim from the factory, to spend several days at the World's Fair in New York. Several days ago we were given the opportunity to find out for ourselves if all the claims of the World's Fair publicity staff were just figments of some member's over-stimulated imagination. They are- not, definitely not. In fact the publicity staff of the Fair has not done the gigantic spectacle justice in our humble opinion. So enthused over the Fair have we become by 'reason of o^ir short visit, that it is our well considered advice, that if, perchance, you figure there is more than a'remote possibility of your dying next week, then take off this week and attend the World's Fair. The- sting of death will be less severe, and you will have the comforting thought, if such it can be called, that death was not robbing you of seeing the many wonders of future years—the World of Tomorrow—for you will have seen the future- at the Fair. When the visitor enters the Fair, he steps at once into grounds brilliant with the hues of countless flowers and shaded by rich green foliage and row on row of trees, trees purchased right here in Maryland and five other states. In addition to the 10,000 trees transplanted on the grounds the Fair spent something like 51,500,000 on flowers and landscaping in general to produce a veritable garden of Eden, a fitting place in which to contemplate the "World of Tomorrow." "For centuries humanity has dreamed of a millenium, a world of peace and plenty in which even the humblest individual might be free to exercise his. inalienable right to the pursuit of happiness," says the Fair program, continuing with the explanation that "the eyes of the Fair are on the future; it stresses the necessity for peace, and teaches that only by enlightened cooperation among all nations, peoples and classes by the intelligent use of the tools which science has placed at our command can the better World of Tomorrow be achieved." The Theme Center of the Fair (Trylon and Perisphere) is the true geographical center of the- Fair. Piercing the sky 700 feet the Try- Ion actually leaves you aghast at its immensity. The Perisphere, which they tell you has a diameter equalling the height of an eighteen story building, stands along side the Trylon. Entering the Perisphere at its base, the visitor mounts the longest moving electric stairway in the world to step out on a revolving platform to witness one of the most astounding sp-sctacles of the Fair. We won't describe it to you because we couldn't possibly do it justice. What is true of the moving stair- Everything is not only immense but th© world's largest. For instance there is a National Cash Register 40 feet high that rings up the daily Fair attendance as the day progresses. They say it is the world's largest cash register, and we believe them. We could go on for columns, telling you of the Fair and its thousands of wonders, tb.3 liberal education it provides, the beautiful buildings of various nations and states, the $6,000,000 Soviet Russia building, for instance; beautiful fountains, garden beds galore, smooth, even streets and walkways, the magnificent buildings of manufacturers, exhibits that are almost unbelievable; gorgeous neon lights, an amusement park second to none in the world, shows such as Billy Rose produces at the Aquacade and Bill Robinson's Hot Mikado, and George Jessels' Old New York, shows that are honest topliners at modest prices. And speaking of prices, we found out somebody was fibbing about the Fair being expensive. As a matter of fact there are only seven ex- tnbits among the hundreds on the rounds that, charge an "entrance! fee. Dandy meals can be bought for 65 cents and less, Swift's best hot dogs, made right before your eyes, are a thin dime with a bun tossed in. Coffee is a nickel, a bus ride about the grounds costs you a dime a throw and it costs you but a dime to ride back and forth from the Fair to New York over the Long Island Railroad. We were told, and we have every reason to believe it, that should you drive to New York instead of being smart and traveling by air- conditioned Pullmans on the Pennsy., that at least you should grab a Long Island Fair Special at Pennsy. station instead of weaving your way at great loss of time and temper driving from New York out to the Fair. We understand the ong Island surface route has an auto ride, a bus ride and the sub- i\-ay route beat to a frazzle when .t comes to time and price. While we didn't see it all by a .ong shot, we did manage to take n the highlights of the Fair such as the General Motors exhibit, which provides one with an act-- ial peep into 1960, and the great General Electric shows—the House of Magic and Steinm-etz' Hall of Science. In the latter you can both see and hear a lightning bolt of a mere 10,000,000 volts. In the House of Magic you will see metal plates defying the laws of gravity, actual sound and light waves, in fact starting truths of science for which scientists have yet to find some jeneficial use. As we said before, we could go on for columns telling you of the thousands of amazing things there are to see on the vast grounds, which by the way consist of 1700 acres, three and one-half miles one A*ay and a mile and a half the other. Space is limited, but between you ind me, that parachute jump that ot a lot of publicity some weeks jack, deserved all the copy it got. or it appears to be about the most FARMERS BACK SOIL PROGRAM „* Letters burg Farmers Name Robert L. Hartle As Representative. Robert L. Hartle was elected representative after a larg-ely attended meeting of farmers in the Leitersburg district last night approved the program for organizing a soil conservation district in Washington County. The meeting was held at the Leitersburg Grange Hall and was sponsored by the Grange of that district. A highly instructive talk was given by two representatives of the Soil Conservation Service, Messrs. Tignor and Haas, which,- with the aid of lantern slides, showed the damage caused in this county from soil erosion. Farmers of the Leitersburg, as well as other districts of the county, are interested in correcting conditions due to corrosion with the assistance of the federal and state- governments. way is true of the Fair as a whole, thrilling thing on the grounds. Britain Views War Rumors With Equanimity; Speeds Preparedness Officials Attributed Flood Of Rumors To What They Called Germany's "War Of Nerves." LONDON, Aug. 17 (ff>) — Great Britain met war talk and peace moves today with further preparedness and calm insistence t^at the European situation called for no initiative from the British-French front. While diplomatic activity lagged, French bombers made a surprise "raid" on England last night in mock "reprisal" for British air "attack" on France—all part of the two powers' reciprocal training program. At Belfast, the warship Formidable, third of a series of aircraft carriers being built under the British naval program, was launched prematurely when the vessel burst her supporting cradle, killing a woman and injuring 20 persons. To Register Warpower Meanwhile, an announcement of plans for national registration of manpower in event of war was followed by a disclosure that the Association of British Chambers of Commerce had drafted a plan for government-sponsored, compulsory war-risk insurance of real estate to be considered after Parliament reconvenes. Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax resumed his vacation in Yorkshire today following talks with the Polish and Turkish ambassadors. His departure was taken as emphasizing the British view that the Danzig situation is "serious but not alarming." Official circles attributed- the flood of rumors to what they called Germany's "war of nerves." The British government, these sources said, expects "every imaginable rumor of imminent war or possible peace will go the round of the capitals" while "increasing German pressure" is put on Poland in an attempt to force Danzig concessions.

CURE FOR "RADIATION" SICKNESS TO HELP CANCER TREATMENT CHICAGO, Aug. 17 (£>).— A cure for "radiation sickness," which has been a major obstacle in givirig cancer patients X-ray treatments, was announced today by the American Medical Association. The discovery was reported in th© association's journal by Dr. J. Wallace Graham of Toronto, Ont. He found that nicotine acid, a form of the vitamin B complex, proved "definitely effective" in relieving the illness in 74.3 per cent of 70 patients to whom it was administered. Of the 70 cases, 27.1 per cent showed "excellent results" and 47.2 per cent "good." A "fair result" was obtained in 14.3 per cent and in 11.4 per cent the drug failed.^ Cause of the sickness, which Dr. Graham said occurred in about 27 per cent of the X-ray patients, is unknown. The untoward reaction has been a "major problem of the Roentgen therapy," he said. "With the addition of nausea and vomiting to the discomfort of those already suffering from cancer, it is not surprising that some patients prefer to discontinue their treatments rather than suffer this additional distress," he commented. The nicotine acid, a nutritional factor effective in treating human pellagra and blacktongue in dogs, offers great promise, Dr. Graham indicated. He reported that in some cases which failed to respond to the drug, the condition of the patient and the advanced stage of the disease seemed to be involved. ENTHUSIASM FOR QUIZ GAMES BRINGS CENSUS SUGGESTIONS WASHINGTON, Aug. 17 (£>)— The current enthusiasm for quiz ames may have something to do with it, but America is clamoring to question itself on everything from wa.ffle irons to zebrulas. The Census Bureau disclosed today that it has received hundreds of suggestions as to subjects that should be included In the 1940 census. Some are good, and some are logical but would require years of work or a million workers, and some are—as the bureau prefers to put it—"very peculiar." One man wrote that he thought it would be beneficial to the country if it could be determined how many persons are over six feet tall. A woman wanted to find out how many rooms in the United States lave no windows. An organization pleaded for dog census. It didn't just want to know how many dogs there are, but it wanted the bureau to classify them by breeds. A group of industrialists asked for a census to determine how many railroad ties there are in America. One citizen suggested that the census takers ask at every door— do you have a waffle iron and a Bible? One of the strangest letters suggested that all farmers be asked: 1. Do you have a zebrula on your farm, and if so, how many? 2. Do you have a cataloe on your farm, and if so, how many? A zebrula is a hybrid zebra. A cataloe is a cross between a native buffalo and a domestic cow. / A female' letter writer suggested /that the bureau find out the color of the eyes and hair of every American.
