THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., MONDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1939. FUGITIVE WE ASK FREEDOM Socialite Convict Carries His Fight To Stay In Texas To Governor AUSTIN, Tex., Oct. 16, (£>). — Slim Richard Gray Gallogly, 30, who learned to balance a teacup before he turned his hand to crime, pleaded with Texas' Hill-Billy songster Governor, W. Lee O'Dauiel. today not to send him back to Georgia's penitentiary for life. . The fugitive, still showing traces of the polish that made him a social light in Atlanta before he went to prison 11 years ago, headed from the jail house to the capitol building feeling his plea for freedom might be heeded. Georgia authorities were determined to fight to uphold their state laws, the legal battle may not be finished until Gallogly is sent back to Dallas for a habeas corpus hearing Wednesday. Years in prison have ruined his health, Gallogly said between coughing spells. He still clung to his story that all he did was drive an automobile away from the scene of a robbery in which a drug clerk •was killed in 192S. To save his companion from a death sentence, he said, he claim••ed he "traded out" with the law and took a life sentence. • He escaped October 6 while being transferred from a Georgia hospital to Reidville pi-ison. He said he headed straight for Texas and surrendered immediately iii the hope of gaining "Texas justice"—his freedom. His mother, socially prominent Mrs. Worth E. Yankey of Atlanta, and his attractive wife, Mrs. Vera Hunt Galloglv. 28, are standing by him. Mercury Dips / To 25 Degrees Second Killing Frost Wipes Out All Vegetation; Ice Forms. The mercury dropped to 25 degrees last night, ice a quarter inch thick formed and a killing frost wiped out all vegetation that escaped Saturday night, when the temperature dropped to 2S degrees. D, Paul Oswald, Chewsville observer, said his government thermometer registered' the 25 degree reading at 6:30 o'clock this morning and that he personally broke ice a quarter inch thick and could have almost tracked a rabbit in the white frost. Flowers, beans, pumpkin vines and other vegetables succumbed to the first killing frost of the season. Saturday night. The highest temperature recorded yesterday was 56 and by 7 o'clock yesterday evening the mercury had dropped 20 degrees, Mr. Oswald said. Saturday's maximum was 5S. the minimum 43 and at sundown 47. As the first half of the month ended, Mr. Oswald reported 1.S9 inches of rain. Average for entire month is 2.SO. the NAZIS CLAIM WARSHIP IS TORPEDOED (Continued from Page 1) in connection with the same action which sank the Royal Oak. The report on the Repulse, coming on the heels of the sinking of the Royal Oak. brought a new wave of enthusiasm over Berlin, particularly in official quarters. Strangers were accosting each other on the streets with the remark, "have you heard?" This was usually followed with, "that'll surely get on the Britishers' nerves. Britannia no longer rules the waves." Some officials said a simple iron cross would not be enough to honor the submarine commander and predicted he would get something better. The communique reporting a submarine attack on the Repulse said briefly: "As reported by the supreme army command the same U-boat which sunk the British battleship Royal Oak severely damaged the battleship (Sic) Repulse through a torpedo hit and put it out of commission." German news broadcasts began with a reading of the communique and then were interrupted with a recording of the German blue-jackets wartime song of "When We sail towards England." Confesses He Beat Salesman For Car NEW YORK. Oct. 16. (JP)-— Huskey Frank Huniel. 20, was held today after authorities said he confessed beating an auto salesman, tying him and stuffing him unconscious into a trunk—all to gain an automobile for "a heavy date with a girl." Assistant District Attorney John Krogman said Humel. booked on assault and robbery charges, lured the salesman, Harry McGill, 55, to his home in Long Island Saturday by asking for a demonstration ride. . Krogman said Humel told him that after driving off in the car fear that "McGill might die" led him to call St. John's hospital anonymously and inform them they would find "a body in a trunk in the yard" at his address. Police responded and found the salesman, his skull fractured, inside the locked trunk. His arms were bound and his lips sealed with adhesive tape. Hospital physicians said McGill, father ot four children, was in serious condition. SEASON TOO SHORT Mrs Mario Calandralle, 500 block of Jefferson street, presented the Daily Mail with a cotton plant which she planted in her garden last May, but which had not fully matured when the first frost ar- riv«d. She raised two plants from •eeds. Next year she plans to start the seed early in the spring indoors, and then transplant in her garden when the frost period is past, so that the plant can mature before frosts arrive in the fall. The season here is too short to successfully grow cotton. '39 STUDEBAKER CRUISING SEDAN — Fully pquipp«?<l including Rndio. Autonia.lic Hill- Holder and. Rotary Latches. Kram EnKin« Cleaner.

The 1939 exhibition of the Great Hagerstown Inter-State Fair, declared by association officials to be the biggest and best in more than a decade, will open tomorrow and continue until Saturday. Every department is reported filled to capacity while space on the mile-long midway is at a premium. Typical October weather yesterday attracted one of the largest Sunday crowds in the history of the Fair. The vast grounds were packed from mid-morning until late in the evening and some conces- sionists did a record business. Clyde Beatty's wild animal circus attracted thousands who wa tolled the preparations and feeding of the big animals from a safe distance. Many of the fine draft horses have arrived and have been assigned to stalls in the horse barn. E. A. Cordermau, superintendent of the pigeon and poultry department, stated that the .poultry building would be filled to capacity with one of the finest exhibits ever offered. W. H. Roane, secretary, dis- ilosed that there would be about 1.200 pigeons of many different varieties. There will be about 500 chickens. Secretary Roane also made a brief announcement that Kingman Brewster would exhibit some of his mink at the poultry building. Mr. Brewster has a farm on Frederick county. He also expects to exhibit some wild turkeys. This exhibit will be a decided novelty for the :air. J. J. Keiffer, Louisville, Ky.. will be the judge for pigeons while the chicken judge will be George Gorsuch, New Windsor, Md. Charles Huyett, superintendent of the main exhibition hall, said that the hall was well filled with concessions and with several outstanding feature exhibits. The interior of the hall has been patriotically decorated. Fish-Game Exhibits The fish and game exhibit will be a treat. Workmen have been engaged for several days setting up the rustic, attractive booths for this exhibit. There is a large, natural looking pool which will contain live fish. Through the efforts of the State Conservation. Commission some live stuffed game birds and animals will be placed on exhibition. There will be a butterfly and insect exhibit. Frank Bentz, secretary of the State Conservation Commission, formerly of this city, has had charge of looking after many of the details in connection with this exhibition. It will also include many interesting exhibits on the oyster, including an exhibit by the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory. The Soil Conservation Service will have moving pictures of erosion control work in the local area. The Washington county granges will have exhibits of farm products. The Hagerstown Camera Club is arranging an exhibit. There will also be many entries of canned fruit and other canned goods, fancy work and art work. The fruit exhibit will be on the balcony. It was announced there would be free.floor shows each night in the main exhibition hall. Music will be furnished each evening by the ITawaiians. The midway yesterday was jammed with people. At about o'clock it was difficult for anyone to pass through the midway except at a very slow pace. Concessionaires did a fair business. While many concessions were open many of Hie people were principally sightseeing. Some of the shows wil not be set up until today. Demonstrations of late Arm> equipment, including tanks anc guns, will be featured during the Fair. The equipment has arrived and taken to the Fairgrounds fot the. demonstration?. An innovation this year will be dancing in cabare 4 : style in the clubhouse. Evelyn Heaton and her Swing Sisters will furnish the music and there will be a floor show during the evening. Fair officials said yesterday tha the crowd on the grounds was the largest Sunday attendance in many years and is indicative of the great interest in the exhibition, which WAR HITTING IMMIGRATION Virtually Impossible To Get In; Naturalization Boosted. WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 (£>)— War is making it tough for European nationals who want to head for the Statue of Liberty and make the United States their home. These aliens find it hard to get passage across the Atlantic, with American boats reserved for refugee Americans and many foreign liners tied up in harbor. Then, there's the problem of a visa, United States Consulates in Warsaw, London and Paris—busy sending Americans home—were riven permission to suspend issuance of visas through September and October. Many would-be emigrants had visas before war broke, but warring governments have land claim to some of these. Germany is permitting women and children to leave, officials here are informed. In addition there are thought to be thousands of German refugees already out of the country and waiting in other lands to get passage to America. German quota numbers, immigration officials said, have been assigned for the next thre years. The quota for Germany and Austria is 27,370 a year. One official predicted that immigrant quotas would be filled as isual after initial war confusion subsided, although they might not be filled by direct passage from urope. Officials expect that the United States will continue to recognize an independent Polish immigration quota, just as it has kept open the Jzechoslovakian quota, already bespoken for some time in the future. Immigration from the countries involved in the present war has been increasing for several years. The number of immigrants from England, France and Germany has increased annually since 1933, and the number from Poland mounted to 4,218 iu 1938. Naturalization of alients from those countries and Soviet. Russia is believed to be increasing despite the recent drop in immigration. A jrant of $250,000 by the last Congress to help clear up naturalization cases already on file is thought to have some bearing on increases, as well as the importance which war places on an individual's citizenship. (Continued rrom Pag* 1) nation intensified preparations to meet possible attacks from, the air. Some military men expressed belief the new submarine offensive would be accompanied by aerial attacks on British ports. Naval experts said that while loss of the 29,150-ton Royal Oak, one of Britain's 15 capital ships, was admittedly a severe blow, it was by no means critical. The Admiralty was silent concerning its construction program, but the government was understood to be speeding the building of new warships to assure maintenance of the blockade against Germany, Nine new battleships were reported under construction. Several large merchant vessels also were being fitted out to augment the fleet. The Admiralty, meanwhile, listed 414 survivors of the warship, and acknowledged the chances were "remote" that any of the other 7S6 members of the crew would be found. The three merchant ships sunk were the British-owned 9,205-ton Lochavon and the French Lines' 10,10S-ton Bretagne and 6,903-ton Lou is in ne. No lives were lost in the sinking of the Lochavon. but at least 15 were reported missing from the other two vessels. British warships landed more than 400 survivors of the three ships in English ports yesterday. Survivors of a German submarine were landed at the same time, Unt official dispatches did not say when or how the submarine had been sunk. promises to be best staged for the biggest years. and *v.

Brownmiller, former secretary of highways, convicted of permitting payroll padding for political purposes before Pennsylvania's 1938 fall election. He also was fined $3,000. The former cabinet officer under the Democratic administration of former Governor George H. Earle made no comment. He was the first of a dozen high Democrats to be tried on indictments that grew out of charges hurled during the 1938 campaign. Judge Howard W. Hughes said the sentence was a penalty upon 'violation of trust" and intended to act as a "deterrent" to misconduct by public officials. COURAGE MAY SAVE LIMB Youth With Crushed Leg Smiles Way Out From Knife. KANSAS CITY. Oct 16 (Jp)— Alfred Leon Miller, Jr., a courageous 7-year-old farm boy, smiled .iis way right out from, under the surgeon's knife. He may learn tonight whether the reprieve he won for his badly crushed left leg is permanent. Surgeons who had rushed him to an operating room to amputate now say Alfred Leon's strength will save him. Alfred Leon helps his father raise turkeys on a farm near Liberty, 20 miles from here. Saturday, with no school, he volunteered to work all day. He was just finishing sweeping the barn when he slipped and plunged into the shaft of a feed mixer. His leg was caught in the grinding tube. It took almost two hours for workmen using blow torches and cutting tools to free him. Bravely he smiled through the tears. His mother, frantic herself from worry, shouted words of encouragement. Tears streaming down her own face, she stood in the basement so Alfred Leon wouldn't see. He winced from pain but was comforted by his mother's voice. His left leg- was terribly twisted and both bones were crushed. After he finally was freed, a Liberty physician stopped the flow of blood and rushed Alfred Leon here. Surgeons sped him to an operating room. Then they noticed his brave smile, his boyish determination to "be a man" for the operation. They wheeled him back to his room and agreed on a "desperate attempt" to save him from becoming a cripple for life. Urges New State Health Program BALTIMORE. Oct. 16, (IP). — A new state health program, with more money for county public health nurses and for housing county medical facilities was advocated today by Delegate Leon Rubenstein (D-4th Baltimore). Rubenstein asked the legislative council to draft the program, with emphasis on the treatment of syphilis and tuberculosis. Maryland's 67 syphilis clinics "can become effective only when they offer free blood tests, free medicine, and free transportation," he wrote the council. "I understand that approximately $125,000 is sorely needed for syphilis control." The state has an inadequate number of beds for sufferers o£ tuberculosis, he said, adding: "The Maryland State colleges, meanwhile, never suffer from a shortage of uniforms for members of the football squads." He said there "is always a long waiting list of white tubercular patients, and the problem among the negro population is shocking, where there are only 270 beds for the entire population."

Ruckman sustained a broken nose and injuries to his forehead. Mrs. Ruckman had leg injuries and Mrs. Leslie Seiberr, Martinsburg. a passenger in the Ruckman car, was cut about the knees.

Automobile accidents took 1S,J)S( lives during tho period, but the council calculated this was four per cent fewer than during the similar period last year. Accidents in factories, on con struction sites and in places, o business resulted in death of 10.SO( workmen. Railroad, air line, bus and other "public" accidents cost 11,000 lives.

ARMSEMBARGO MEASURE MAY DENY CREDITS (Continued from Page 1) warring nations would meet early this week, probably tomorrow, to work out an agreement of this sub- ect. The start of the third week of the Senate neutrality debate found administration forces today confident of victory in that chamber, but expressing some concern over prospects in the House. One Senator who has been work- ng for the administration measure, which would repeal the arms embargo and set up a "title and car•y" system of wartime sales, expressed* confidence that it would pass the Senate by the end of next week. As for the House, he said: 'It's pretty close over there as it .ooks now." The House approved a modified arms embargo last summer by a majority of 41, so that 21 members would have to change their views :o assure repeal. As for the situation in the Senate, administration, leaders were becoming uneasy over the length of -he debate. They soon are expected to propose a limitation of the discussion. Senator Clark, however, said that 20 Senators still were seeking floor time. Other opposition leaders said they believed that the general debate would last throughout this week and that action on amendments would require still another week. Rubber Plant Is Enlarged O'Sullivan Company Of Winchester Building Big Addition. The O'Sullivan Rubber Company of Winchester which is controlled by the Funkhouser interests of this city, has announced that work has been started on a plant addition which will increase floor space by 10,000 square feet. The O'Sullivan Company since the declaration of war, has enjoyed an unusually large business. In September, orders were greater than at any time in the history of the company and so far this month the output has mounted steadily intil the plant is operating on a 24-hour basis. More than 100,000. gas masks or the U. S. Navy were manufactured. FRENCH BLAST (Continued from Page 1) rear, was reported silent all day yesterday. This, French military men said, was customary before a general offensive in order to keep secret the position of new gun emplacements. Guns of all calibres were said to be participating in the French bombardment. German troop concentrations were reported observed in an area extending back from the front to a depth of 10 miles. Meanwhile, further to the south, automobiles equipped with loudspeakers raced up and down on the German side of the Rhine broadcasting Germany's desire for peace. The broadcasts included sections of Fuehrer Hitler's recent Reichstag speech, particularly those portions asserting Germany has no quarrel with France. In various sections of the front, German troops unfurled over their lines banners bearing slogans such as "bad luck for those who refuse to accept Hitler's peace." The French said their artillery answered the appearance of these banners with well-aimed salvos. Fog and rain curtailed military activity along the entire front during the week-end, although a French communique last night said ambushes laid to snare German patrols had "obtained sought-after results," apparently meaning the capture of prisoners. Dispatches from the frontier province of Lorraine said continued vain had caused the Muese, Mouzon and Saonelle rivers to overflow, inundating the countryside hampering communications. Military advices reported the French output of war planes would be increased fivefold by next year through steps taken by Air Minister Guy La Chambre. By that time, they said, the industry would employ 300,000 men, and the training of pilots would be stepped up to keep pace with production. French correspondents at the front, commenting on the courage of French fliers and their "superiority' 'over the Germans, reported one pilot brought his" reconnaissance plane back in flames and landed safely after his observer had been riddled with bullets while floating to earth in a para chute. In this and a similar incident where another reconnaisance plane was said to have been landed by a gravely-wounded observer who took over after the pilot was killed, "valuable" photographs were reported brought home un damaged. The French correspondents also appeared to be impressed by the youth o[ the French officers, which they said, was tempered by ex perience. Many of these men a.l ready have been through three mobilizations, and their efficiency is s.nid to be in marked contras to the troops which marched off to war in l!)M. NEWSPAPER MAN SPEAKER.

NEW YORK, Oct. 16 (#»)—The shiny new gas stove Augelo Michieli bought to surprise his immigrant wife, brought death to her and their four-year-old son the same day they arrived from Italy. Michieli, a hotel cook, who had been in this country three years, diligently saved his money to bring his family here, and they arrived yesterday on the liner Rex. A host of relatives helped Mcni- eli welcome his wife, Amelia, 31, and his son, Bruno, to their small newly - furnished apartment on East 46th street. Then Michieli left for work after explaining to his wife how to operate the new stove that had thrilled and delighted her. When he returned shortly before midnight, he found the apartment full of gas fumes- Bruno lying* on the kitchen floor, the body of his wife slumped over a bed in an adjoining room. A pot of coffee was on the stove from Avhich gas poured from an open jet. Police said the coffee had boiled over, extinguishing the flame. Mrs. Michieli had not known she must turn off the jet.
