Here are two photos showing him busting into what is described as the inner circle as he obtained material for his pictures of the event. At the left, although military etiquette keeps you from noticing.it, he's slipping HUNT ARMORY "PLAN SCORED Exposition Society Lease Opposed by Sacred Heart Church. Plans to provide Pittsburgh with a large convention hall through conversion of the Hunt Armory in the East End have encountered a snag in the form of opposition from the pastor and trustees of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. The project to create a long-sought auditorium with a seating capacity of 14,000 became known Saturday when the church authorities, in telegrams to Governor George H. Earle, attacked it on the grounds that it would be detrimental to the neighborhood of the armory and church in Emerson street. The Greater Pittsburgh Exposition Society, it was disclosed, is endeavoring to lease the armory for a nominal rent provided the Society defrays the cost of installing a floor, heating plant and other facilities, estimated at $250,000. Although the state armory board already has approved the proposal to utilize the home training quar ters of the One Hundred and Seventh Field Artillery, according to P. M. Chamberlain, promoter for the society, other state agencies must also authorize it. It appeared j-esterday that the final decision in the controversy will rest with Governor Earle as a result of the church action. Complaining that tne matter has been kept "almost entirely secret," the Reverend Thomas F. Coakley, pastor of Sacred Heart Church, asked the governor to give immediate attention to a project which would "change the character of Emerson street." The trustees added their protest to the pastor's because they It has been necessary to go outside the SOME ONE Society Girl Flier to Wed Air Official Miss Helen MacOoskey, the flying society girl of 1301 Inverness street, who has several women's air marks to her credit, will b taking off 'again soon, thi time into matrimony. The date has not been announced. She will become the bride of Howard F. Rough, another flier, who on July 1 becomes the assistant director of the United States bureau of air commerce in AVashington. Miss MacOoskey who gave her age as 27, and Rough, 46, applied for a marriage license Saturday. Miss MacOoskey set a new world's light plane speed record for women in 1935. She now works for the department of air commerce marking roof tops for air travel. Rough, of Dearborn, Mich., now is with the Gulf Oil Corporation's aviation department. said the armory would be used for "prize fights, ice skating and roller skating, circuses, expositions and other amusement enterprises." Chamberlain declared, however, that the building would be used primarily for conventions ani expositions and that sports events would be only an incidental part of the program. Masonic Dead Honored Commemoration services in tribute to members of Masonic orders who have died were conducted last night in Trinity Cathedral. Participating in the services were Dr. N. R, H. Moor, dean of the cathedral, and Dr. Hugh Thompson Kerr, pastor of the Shadyside Presbyterian church. Toonerville Folks By Fontaine Fox TO PLAY THE PART OF iAo A r one of the grenadier guardsmen a sketch he had just made of htm while they waited for the first installment of the coronation parade, on the Mall in front of the palace. It was done in the twinkling of an eye. The guardsman noticed Cy sketching and because grenadier guardsmen never must lose their dignity asked out of the corner .of his mouth for the sketch. By some method known MAYOR PUSHES POLICEjTOE Will Get Report Today On Alleged Tieup With Hill Bootleg Gang. Preliminary reports on the progress of his investigation to date into the tie-up between city po licemen and a Hill district boot leg alcohol ring will be presented to Mayor C. D. Scully today by City Solicitor John J. Kennedy. The law department head will present his partial report and discuss further steps in a conference with the mayor and Safety Director George E. A. Fairley. Kennedy would not discuss rumored possibilities of the appointment of a special prosecutor to push the quiz when questioned yesterday. Scully was out of the city and could not be reached for comment. Kennedy would likewise make no comment on the possibility that the scope of the investigation may be widened beyond the protection of the alcohol ring into other ramifications of alleged police graft. It is known, however, that the solicitor and his aides had listened to ex-Inspector Albert E.-Florig, roving vice raider in the administration of former Mayor William N. McNair. Kennedy, who was named to conduct the investigation when Federal court trials against the rum ring defendants first disclosed police connections, would not say whether or not he had obtained any new information from Florig or any one else. It is believed, however, that the conference with Mayor Scully for the presentation of the preliminary report was delayed over the weekend after being originally scheduled for Saturday because of new leads developed. Eight policemen are under suspension pending completion of the quiz. neighborhoop to get THE KING Stalled Car Driver Hurt In Express Train Crash Boy, 10, Playing Nearby Escapes Unhurt As Locomotive Hurls Wreckage. By Our Own CHAP.LEROI, Pa., May 24. Trapped in his stalled automobile, Lawrence Brown, 35, of 701 Lincoln avenue, North Charleroi, was seriously injured tonight when the Fairmont-Pittsburgh express of the Pennsylvania Railroad struck the machine on a grade crossing in North Charleroi. Brown's car first stalled a few feet from the tracks, according to Kenneth Wilson. 10, who was playing nearby. After measuring the SCIENCE TO FIGHT FOR AIR HYGIENE Foundation Plans War On Dust Diseases. Plans for a determined warfare on industrial diseases, which every day endanger the lives of more than 1,000,000 workers, were announced yesterday by the Air Hygiene Foundation. The drive, which will begin as soon as final arrangements have been made, will consist largely of research into the sources and preventives for diseases caused by dust and fumes. The foundation, from its Mellon Institute headquarters, also announced a campaign for additional support from industry. More than 170 "heavy industry" companies are now affiliated with the nonprofit, scientific organization. The five-point research program calls for studies at Saranac Laboratory, Harvard School of Public Health, University of Pennsylvania Hospital, Singer Memorial Laboratory, and Mellon Institute, and for work in co-operation with the United States Bureau of Mines. Attention will be paid especially to silica hazards, pneumonia in smoky atmospheres, chest X-rays, and to various preventative measures against all types of pollution. FUREY FUNERAL SET FOR TODAY Services to Be Held At Shadyside Church. Fifty-two honorary pall bearers representing his business, civic and fraternal associates, will serve today at the funeral of William M. Furey, prominent life insurance director and past president of the Chamber of Commerce, who died last Friday in Atlantic City Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 4 o'clock in Shadyside Presbyterian Church. The Reverend Dr. Hugh Thomson Kerr, pastor, will officiate. The' burial will be in Homewood cemetery. Participating in the services will be the Masonic supreme council, of which Mr. Furey was a member. Rescued by Invalid, Swimmers Recuperate Saved from drowning in a pond in Ross township Saturday by a man convalescing from pneumonia, Fred 8, and Clifford Kephart, 11, brothers of 2903 Spring Garden avenue, were recovering at their homes yesterday. Clifford was pulled under trying to save Fred, they said. Otto Wend-ler, 24, of 1265 Spring Garden avenue, sunning himself nearby, noticed the struggle, dove in the pond and pulled the boys out. Wendler gave Fred, who was unconscious, artificial respiration. The pond is on Daniel's farm. only To the military, he managed to hide it under the tail of his scarlet coat. At the right, Cy is shown in the royal Mews of Buckingham Palace, helping one of the two footmen who marched beside the front horses of the royal coach to get the last button of his scarlet-and-gold coat properly buttoned. Correspondent. gasoline in the tank, the boy said. Brown started the car again, but it stalled the second time just when it reached the track. Before Brown could leap out, the locomotive struck the car and hurled it 20 yards, crushing Kenneth's toy wagon. The fact that the boy left the toy to watch the disabled car probably saved him from injury or possible death. Brown is in critical condition in the Charleroi-Monessen Hospital. DOCTORS FIGHT FOR MAN'S SIGHT Wage Quarrel Leads To Stabbing Affray. Physicians last night were struggling to save the sight of the left eye of a Northside huckster who was stabbed by one of two employes in an argument over wages, police said. John Liotta, 25, of 620 Sherman street, the huckster, was in Eye and Ear Hospital, and police held James Barkley, 27, of 824 Pennsylvania avenue, and Albert Lambert, 28, of 514- Sandusky street on charges of felonious cutting. Police say Barkley and Lambert went to Liotta's rooms Saturday night to collect their wages. Liotta struck one of the men and the fight started, police said. The employes fled after the stabbing and were arrested later at Sherman and Montgomery avenues. Auto Drive in Etna . Motorists were warned last night by Etna police in a letter, to the Pittsburgh Automobile Club that a campaign against all motor code violations will open in the borough today. Police Commissioner John P. Lades ic and Burgess William Stilz instituted the campaign after residents complained. CROSSTOWN Copyright.

Caddies of St Clair Country Club, Washington road, are on strike again they are asking for another raise and golfers yesterday and Saturday carried their own bags from tee to green, a practice that is fast becoming a custom at the club, j Less than a year ago the cad dies were given a raise of from 75 cents to a dollar for 18 holes after a short strike, members said. Now they are striking for $1.25 for 18 holes and 65 cents for nine, it was announced. About 250 caddies are affected by the strike, which will be a "fight to the finish," for members indicated they would not give in to the demands, saying they woUld rather carry their own golf bags. A crowd of 150 boys picketed the entrance to the club yesterday and that, it was said, tended to discourage golfers from bringing their own caddies with them and thus lessened the possibility of fist fights. Club officials said the first they knew there was to be a strike was Saturday morning when they received a letter from the strike leaders, numbering 10 boys, making the demands. None of the caddies came to work Saturday morning. TO REVIEW PITT'S 150-YEAR HISTORY Open Meeting of Historical Society To Be Held Tomorrow Night.

AUTO DEATH TOLL DECLINESjN CITY 32 So Far in 1937 Lowes". For Period in 15 Years. Autos claimed 32 lives in Pittsburgh traffic accidents the first four months of 1937, a decline of 11 per cent for the same period in 1936 and the lowest four-month toll in 15 years in the records of the bureau of traffic planning. The decrease was achieved in spite of an increase in accidents and a greater severity per individual accident, the bureau reported. The decline in deaths here is noteworthy considering there was a 26 per cent increase in traffic fatalities in the nation and a 45.8 per cent gain in the state fcr the first first three months of 1937. Improved enforcement of ths motor vehicle code and "tags that can't be fixed" are held by the bureau as responsible for the record. It points out that 64.4 per cent cf those tagged for driving violations in the four months this year have been fined. Last year in the same period only 16.7 per cent of the motorists tagged for similar violations had to pay fines. Decoration Day USED CAR SALE See Today's POST-GAZETTE WANT ADS i. : t i i . '1 -
