The other shoe was on her fool, when her body was found. Mrs. George Byars, telephone operator ut Johnson City, said that she and "practically all of Johnson City" went to the Herwlg home alter hearing of the double 1 killing.

"The axe had been washed but there still were blood stains on it," Sheriff King Casparls said. "We haven't established the identity of the slayer," the sheriff said, "but we believe a solution of the case Is near." Officers questioned Herwlg and his small daughters closely in an effort to get all possible information on circumstances surrounding the slayings. Herwlg said he could think of no motive. Mr. and Mrs. Herwlg had been married about two years. He is around 42 years old. N° 3 (Continued From Page 1) Texas, Col.

After receiving 4 a round of applause in the lobby, the colonel got the animal up the broad marble stairs to the floor which houses the Democratic national committee. While Texans whooped up he rode into the Garner headquarters. First the donkey made for a vase of flowers. The ladies screamed. Then he began to paw the deep carpet and generally misbehave. "Get him out of here," someone yelled. Bellboyt; and chamber maids • who had been standing by nervously rushed up and escorted the colonel and his mount out of the headquarters, down the steps and into the street. <'You just can't tell about animals," sighed the colonel.

At this point Mungo had fanned nine men. COLUMN (Continued Irom page 1) (Continued From Page 1) consent of u subcommittee for the recommendation of a plan whereby convention representatives in the future would be apportioned on a basis of democratic strength in the .states instead of total population as now. The committee row, in which no feelings were spared, forced adjournment of the fiftn session soon after it had unanimously accepted the reports of the credentials and permanent organization committees. Plainly, supreme efforts were being made to reconcile all differences in conference—by way of a prelude to the renomination of Roosevelt and Garner. Success or failure could only be guessed. Southern friends of the two thirds requirement said there would be no minority report by them; but a minority report on endorsement of the Townsend plan in the platform was still discussed in the Washington state delegation. Senator Millard Tydings of Maryland led the fight for the rules compromise. He insisted the convention itself should act on the proposed reapportionment plan, which republican long have followed. The leaders apporently expected it to be endorsed with little if any difficulty. Chavez Opposes Senator Dennis Chavez of New Mexico, opened debate by denying the south was the only section opposing abrogation. "If we are to make a change shouldn't it be done when the necessity arises?" Chavez asked. "This rule was good enough to give us Jackson, Cleveland, Wilson and Roosevelt, so why can't we proceed along sound lines." Rep. John Rankin of Mississippi, interrupted to observe it was "the same pernicious press favoring abrogation of this rule that Js favoring senate representation based on population." Senator Bennett Champ Clark of Missouri, committee/ chairman, sfrt on the convention floor white Hep. to coincide with those of the Dally NEWS, or its editor. * * * There is something new under the sun. Now, an evangelistic meeting at a centennial celebration is new and certainly sets up another frontlei for Christian activity. * * * The Disciples of Christ will engage in such an enterprise at the Texas Centennial in Dallas under leadership of one of their foremost preachers, Dr. Raphael II. Miller, pastor of the National City Christian Church, Washington, D. C. * * * Services will be held in the Chrysler Gardens each evening from June 28 to July 11. Services will last for one hour daily, 6:45 to 7:45 p. m.—providing a haven of rest to the weary for an hour following supper. * * * The man who fell off the flying trapeze says: This is the month in which politicians are beginning to kiss babies. + * * Personally, we'd say it is the month in which the veterans are kissing baby bonds. ROBBERY FRUSTRATED LAWRENCE, Mass, June 25, (/P)— A gun battle between robbers attempting to setee a $19,000 payroll and a policeman and bank employ? sent two of the gunmen and the bank employe to Lawrence general hospital today. One of the robbers was reported near death. Doughton of North Carolina presided. W. W. Durbin of Ohio asserted that minority elements would control the convention by blocking nominations in the future unless the rule of majority was restored. Purbin insisted he wanted majority rule "to prevent a yipping minority led by a sky pilpt from Detroit" from dominating the convention. "The two thirds rule," he declared, "is a relic of the dead hand." Beeman Strong of Texas offered a substitute which would prpvide for repeal and th'at hereafter each state be given six votes in the convention with two additional for each representative and two for each senator in congress, Rankin spoke before the committee voted on this. "If you are going to change this rule you must give us something in its place," Rankin said. "We have yielded to you on presidential candidates for 75 years, Roosevelt will be nominated by unanimous votes and so will Garner." R. W. Robins of Arkansas broke with his southern colleagues and favored repeal. He referred to the 1932 Chicago convention and said the big eastern states might have blocked the nomination of President Roosevelt. "I don't think sectionalism ought to be raised here," he said. "We should all work together." Clark, whose father lost the nomination to Wilson in 1928 because of the two thirds rule, argued that the question was referred to this convention by the last one and that this was the only time to act because of the absence of a presidential contest.

Snake Torture Trial Proceeds LOS ANGELES, June 25, (/P)— Charles Hope, the state's chief witness in the murder trial of Robert James, was ready to resume his story today of the snake torture death of James' fifth wife, Mary. Hope, clipping off his words and irritated when they weren't immediately understood, summed up in one sentence the main portion of the state's case. In his first appearance-on the witness stand, he said: "James came to me early in June last year and said he had a friend who wanted to kill his wife and that It would be worth $100 to me to get a couple of rattlesnakes." The prosecution branded the former master barber as the "friend," his own wife as the victim, and charged that her death was murder by drowning after hours of torture by the bites of snakes and black widow spiders. ^onr Condition Favorable W. O.
