June I I Ernest Brinkert. ex-convicf arrested in the Lindbergh case, told his story to state police today, and immediately thereafter officers drove rapidly away for ani unannounced destination.

Arrested in New Rochelle, N. early today after the suicide of Violet Sharpe, waitress in the Englewood, N. home of Mrs. Dwight W. Morrow, grandmother of the murdered Lindbergh baby, Brinkert came here voluntarily early today, waiting Brinkert Served Term In Prison for Assault Day's News By FRANK JENKINS OAMUEL SEABURY, who has heen conducting the Walker investigation, sends to Governor Roosevelt copy of the testimony taken and along with It he sends a letter In which he states that Jimmy Walker is unfit to continue in office as mayor of New York.

This is done just ahead of the Democratic national convention, which will either nominate Governor Roosevelt as the Democratic candidate for President, or will REFUSE to do so and instead nominate someone else. IP Governor Roosevelt removes Mayor Jimmy, he will make a lot of Tammany enemies, and Tammany is a very considerable power in the Democratic national convention, which requires a two-thirds vote tcnominate. If he DOESN'T remove Mayor Walker, he will expose himself to the suspicion that he Is protecting Tammany, and that won't look so good to the delegates from the South and the West. Governor Roosevelt, you see, has been put on the spot. EVERYTHING considered, in-.

eluding the fact that a lot ot New Yorkers would like to pre-, vent the nomination of Governor Roosevelt, do you reckon this Walker investigation 5ust happened at the present psychological moment, or was It PUSHED? This writer, for one, suspects that somebody pushed. THIIIS short sentence from a Han- kow dispatch will give you an interesting picture of present conditions in China: "A great battle between TWENTY THOUSAND brigands and fho provincial army is going on near Kwangshan, in southeastern Honan province." Twenty thousand brigands! That number would look impressive even in Chicago! pLARENCE M. WRIGHT, Asso-elated Press staff writer at Washington, brings the new revenue law down to brass tacks with this statement: "If you are a married business man with one child and a net In come of $6,000. the new federal taxes will cost you something like $310 a year." In order to keep the record straight, let us make one little addition to this statement: If you have a NET Income of $6,000 a year and have only a wife and one child to Bupport, you are getting off quite easily with a tax of only $310.

WASHINGTON, June 11. Po lice today destroyed a very small quantity of dynamite discovered by bonus-seeking war veterans in one of their encampments. Police declined to comment on the seizure or to say whether they linked it with communist activities among the veterans. Meanwhile registrations at the veterans' encampments reached 033 and more were en route.

As vigorously as their leaders be sieged congress for bonus payment, the men beseiged their leaders for blankets or some protection from the usually chilly nights. The leader had one stock answer. It was: Go dig yourself a hole in the ground like tho rest of us. This is not Palm Beach." The increasing numbers taxed to its limit the hastily formed "na tional organization" to feed and house the veterans in the widely scattered caihps. Goal of 50,000 Set.

The organization's chief weakness was in its food distribution system from the central commis sary headquarters. Some camps complained ot a shortage of food while others reported aa overabundance. Commander-in-Chief Waters and his executive committee has launched a drive to swell the veteran ranks to 50,000 within the next two weeks. To protect the henlth of both the public and the former soldiers Waters today directed that no visitors bo permitted to wander til rough the Auacostia camp unless escorted by a member of the camp command. Bonus Vote Scheduled.

A study of the legislative situation surrounding the bonus legislation in the house has led legislative leaders to believe a vote will come Wednesday, or late Tuesday at the earliest. It will first be necessary on Monday for the house to voto out of the rules committee a rule permitting consideration of the bill which now is tabled with an unfavorable report. Then that rule will have to be adopted, prob ably bringing up tho hill on tho following day. General dnbnte and amendment attempts probably will consume a day. 1,500 CALIFORNIA VETS START TREK TO CAPITAL SAN FRANCISCO, June 11, Southern California's "bonus army," numbering approximately veterans of tho World war en route to Washington, D.

Recommendations that the height of dams called for in power anplica- tlons by the California Oregon Power company on the North Umnaua river be reduced, and that the power comnanv be re quired to pay the additional cost incurred by forcing the proposed North Umpqua road higher on the hillside because of the creation of reservoirs, are contained In the report of the forest service to the federal power commission, released vesterdav to trustees of the North TJmpqua-Piamond Lake Highway Improvement district. The report was prepared by the district office of the forest service at the request of the federal power commission, which has before it the application of the power companies for power sites along the entire length of the North Umpqua river. Due to the conflict between the proposed power development and the construction of the North Umpqua-Dlamond lake road, the federal power commission asked that a careful survey be made of all of the contributing factors in order that it may determine what action to take upon the power ap plications. The report is a very complete and exhaustive studv of all features connected with both power and road development, touching recreation and scenic facilities al so. The report, however, fails to deal to anv great extent with the commercial value of the road, which is the chief renson the highway trustees have been endeavoring to avoid placing the road on the hillsides where numerous curves and grades would be necessary.

i. The confflcts iietweon the power and road development programs comes chiefly between Rock creek and Steamboat. The power conv pany pronoses high dams at "Rock creek. Hogback and Boundary which would create great artificial lakes. This would force the build ing of the road away from the river bench, where a good alfgn- ment would bo possible, to the sides of the canyon and where nu merous curves and grades would he reanired.

While such a winding road would not meet too serious objection from a scenic standpoint, its commercial value would be seriously impaired, the trustees believe.

STRANGE MALADY KILLS KLAMATH FISH KLAMATH FALLS, June 11. Stricken with a strange mnl-ady hundreds of mullets nnd suckers are dying In upper Klamath lake. A similar disease last year among these fish was attributed to low water.

A queer form of algae has developed in the lake causing the waters to take on a jade green tinge. It Is believed that this algae may have something to do with the fish malady.
