Franklin, the investment banker she is accused of killing, beaten up so badly he would have to stay in a hospital three months.. The prosecution read the testimony of Donald A. Usher, seaman not in court, as it was laken at a previous hearing. Usher declared he collected the 5100 from the defendant but did not beat up Franklin. Other witnesses testifying to the $100 offer were Jack Rankin, taxi driver; Gabe Lynn, manufacturing company worker; Bob Louvicr, occupation not revealed and Ira Latham, cook. Leo Giordenella, a convict brought here from Eastham prison farm, surlily denied Miss O'Keefe ever asked him to injure Franklin, whose charred body was found 1 in a car Nov. 12. Had Mad* Offer The previous witness, Latham, had said she did make him such an offer several times in Latham's presence. Usher's testimony, was that he met Miss O'Keefe at a night club last May and the defendant asked him "to beat up a man and put him in the hospital for at least Denver Conducts its First Ship-Launching; Parts Made For Navy DENVER, Feb. 27.

Russell (D-Tex), supporting the Smith amendment. Rep. Thomason (D-Tex) asserted, on the other hand, that the amendment would increase labor disputes. He asserted that "93 per cent of labor is just as patriotic as the members here." Representatives of the AFL and CIO were on Capitol Hill, buttonholing members in an effort to beat the amendment. AFL President William Green and CIO President Philip Murray issued statements denouncing it. To Absolve Employers Green said the real aim of the legislation was not to lengthen face early in March.

"I told her I'd have to hurt him pital three months and she said it had to be done," Usher testified. They agreed to meet at a nightclub afterward, where she was to pay him, Usher related. He said he went to the club about 1:30 a. m. with his hands bandaged and walking with a limp. "She asked me if it was all over and I told her it was," Usher said. "I told her I had hurt my hand hitting him. She handed me the money and I left in a hurry." Had No Inttntioni Actually, Usher saH, he had not beaten up Franklin and had no intention of doing so. He said he railed Miss O'Keefe next day and she was "plenty mad." They met, he continued, and she warned him that it he didn't do the job he would never fight again. "She said it had to be done if she had to do it'herself," the seaman and former prizefighter testified, "and when I asked her how a little woman like her could do it she said she had something that would bring him down to her hours, since workers now can be employed longer than 40 hours if they are paid over-time rates, but Dies Reports On Japanese (Continued From Page One) ed with President Roosevelt and Secretary of State Hull "both of whom feel quite strongly that hearings such a? you contemplate would be inadvisable."

"However, a large enemy column with elephants moved up the coast to reinforce them. Our troops then moved to deny the line of the Sittang river to the enemy. "There, considerable concentrations of enemy reinforcements heavily pressed our forward positions, necessitating further -withdrawals across the Sittang river in order to make our line more secure. Raid Is Intercepted "The enemy has not attempted to cross the Sittang since our withdrawal. His present inactivity shows that enemy casualties were heavy. "Our aircraft intercepted most successfully a bombing raid over an airdrome near Rangoon on Feb. 2:5. A minimum of 30 aircraft were destroyed, mostly fighters. We lost four fighters. . "Our aircraft raided Moulmein on Feb. 23 and sank two paddle- boats full of Japanese troops." Authorities were unable to say just when ths communique was issued—possibily it was a day or two old.

But Rep. Carlson (R-Kan), speaking for the amendment, said labor disputes could no longer be allowed to impede the war effort.

Conquest Outlined Lieut. Gen. Kiyokatsu Sato was the Japanese officer who outlined a proposed conquest of the United States. "The great thing is for Japan to see that hostilities are opened before the main strength of the American fleet is brought to Hawaii and that her naval operations take place with lightning speed, 1 ' the committee quoted his book. "The struggle for Hawaii thus constitutes the first stage of a Japanese-American war." The plan said that the second step would be the reduction of Panama and the United States Murder Hearing (Continued From Page One) little children."

Controlled PICKS QuoUd The comment quoted was by the Japan Tunes and Advertisers which is controlled by the Tokyo foreign office, and aside from the the curious bellicosity of its tone toward a nation with which Japan was on a neutral footing it was interesting because of the fact that it came on a day that brought a disclosure of the first Japanese attack upon the territory of India. This was a Japanese bomber raid on the Andaman islands, which lie in the Bay of Bengal on the British-Allied sea routes from the Indian ocean.

Bernhardt had been employed at Duncan field, San Antonio, since July 16, 1938. He became an American citizen while a minor when his father was naturalized.

Vichy Pledges Not To Violate Neutrality WASHINGTON, Feb. 27. (!?}— Warned by President Roosevelt not to aid the Axis. Vichy, France has pledged itself to refrain from any violation on neutrality, particularly any violation involving "the use of French vessels for the purposes of war." This was disclosed today by Sumner Wells, undersecretary of state, who added that "further clarifications with regard to other important questions are awaited" before the status of relations with Vichy can be finally determined. Welles made known that on Feb. 10, President Roosevelt sent a personal message to Chief of State Petain declaring that if Vichy ships war materials to Axis powers or otherwise aids them beyond the terms of the armistice, it will be classed as an assistant of the declared enemies of the United States. fleet, with "the third period" beginning with a landing of Japanese forces on the Pacific coast. "The next course would be to along the Rocky mountains so that our military troops might be massed in the occupied areas along the coast. Information Assembled "Preparations made west of the Rockies, our Army would now take the offensive and advance toward the East coast . . . The war would last at least four or five years; it might even drag out to last several score years." The committee said that in August last year it had assembled information from investigators and other sources which led to a number of conclusions, some of which were: 1. The Japanese government was "hypocritically going through the motions of diplomatic negotiations with the United States government without entertaining the slightest thought that the problems of he Pacific were susceptible of amicable adjustment." 2. Nazis were "schooling the Japanese in all the elaborately developed techniques of espionage be presumed. The War secretary stressed that the estimates were conservative. He said many additional planes were hit, and "it seems probable, therefore, that the total enemy losses in aircraft were much greater than the figure given." Expenditures Okayed Ships included as probably sunk were only those whose "observed damage was so great as io leave little doubt as to their ultimate destruction." From Bataan Gen. . Douglas MacArthur reported that he had authorized expenditure of $10,000,000 in relief funds among the gether, Mrs. Woodall made up Mrs. Barr's face, saying "you ought to use more rouge on your face and your boy friend woulc be crazy about you."

Traditions Kept AHv* 3. Japanese in California had Since then, Welles said, additional communications have been exchanged between the two governments, including a communication dated Feb. 24 in which the Vichy government gave the pledge to be neutral. occupied land which was "militarily but not agriculturally useful" and which was near defense plants. 4. Japanese had a detailed map showing fleet positions and battle formations of the Navy around Pearl Harbor and showing military information about the Panama canal and the Philippines. 5. Through Japanese language schools, civic, religious and military organizations, fishing vessels and "treaty" merchants, Japan was able to keep alive its traditions and ambitions—and at the same 'time tap sources of revenue. 6. The Japanese relied on all its nationals to serve as a fifth column—and in Hawaii the column was ready for collaboration with Japan's armed forces. Map Reproduced The committee reproduced a map it said as prepared by the Japanese showing the entire Pacific area with insert maps indicating Guam, Pearl Harbor, Ma- cisco Bay, Panama in detail, Panama City, Colon and the Panama canal. "It will be observed," the report said, "that the first four of the foregoing places have already been subjected to Japanese attack. The map indicates the locations of United States air bases, mines, Army and Navy bases, ocean cables, canals, railroads and radio stations." The committee made this general observation: "Prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, extreme carelessness marked the policy of the United States with reference to the location of Japanese residents of California. "These potential saboteurs were permitted to take up residence or to carry oh their business and their truck gardening in the immediate vicinity of important defense establishments, oil storage tanks, oil wells, harbors and the like Troop 8 Wins Court Of Honor Awards Troop 8 won all honors Friday night at a monthly Boy Scout court of honor in 99th district courtroom.

Of the total, $2,500,000 was allotted as gratuities to widows and orphans of officers and soldiers who met death, for care of disabled men and relief of soldiers' families. The same amount was earmarked for gratuities to families of civilians suffering from the invasion. Light Engagements Meanwhile, MacArthur's little Army retained its surprising gains on the Bataan peninsula with little opposition, strengthening a belief that the Japanese had been forced to give up.the idea of conquering the Philippines until substantial reinforcements arrived. The defenders' unexpected thrusts have resulted in advances in the last 48 hours which ranged up to about five miles on the Manila bay sector of the fighting front, MacArthur advised the War , department. - . ' Thrown back to positions they had wrested from the American'-" Filipino.forces weeks ago, the invaders failed to launch an anticipated counter-attack and fighting dwindled to engagements involving only light forces.
