Title Detroiter Places Third in Contest Conducted at Statler by National Association Kidnap Search Two Years Old Case of Browe Baby Still a Mystery Two years ago Monday, a nine-teen-month-olci baby boy was abducted from his carriage in Clarn Park. Scotten Ave. ann Porter St. The baby. Harry Browe, has never been found. On Sept. 5. 1936. the bcy'a parents directed his brothers, Charles, fc', and Edva'd, 7, to takj the child to the park. It wa.i 4:30 p.m. Saturday. The older boys wheeled Harry the half dozen blocks from their home at 1468 Sixteenth St. to the park, and then proceeded to play with other children, paying little attention to their charge. About 7 p.m., a strange woman with two small girls gave Charles money to buy ice cream and told Edward to accompany him. When the two youngsters re turned, they told police later, thi woman was gone. So was Harry. The boys reported the disappearance to their parents, who called police. One ot the most hard-pressed investigations in tha history of the Police Department followed, but to no avail. Harry is still missing, and while a squad of police under Lieut, Clarence Grant of Fort Station never has ceased to run down scanty clews, they hold little hope that the true fate of the missing boy will ever bo known. The Browes now live on Ridgeway Ave. near Mack, Grosse Fointe Farms. Death-Leap Squad Forestalls Plunge N. Y. Bridegroom Prevented from Making Jump NEW YORK, Sept. 5 The Police Department's squad to prevent suicide leaps organized after John Wardo's long-delayed leap from the eighteenth-floor ledge of the Hotel Gotham upset a weird honeymoon early today at the Hotel Commander on W. Seventy-third St. At 3:20 a. m. hotel employees broke into a seventh-floor room, police said, to rescue the bride, who said that her husband of two days, Elmer Freund, 53-year-old pawnbroker, had been trying to push her out of a window. Then Freund barricaded himself in the room and threatened to jump. Police finally tricked him into unfastening the lock and burst in to discover him standing at a window looking at the police with nets spread in the street be low. Recently a patient at several health farms, he was taken to Bellcvue Hospital for observation. Later in the morning Mrs. Constance Anto, 39, evaded the frantic clutches of her husband and eighteen-year-old daughter, bolted a bathroom door to prevent their interference and, disregarding their entreaties, plunged to her death from their home on the fourteenth floor of an apartment building on lower Fifth Ave. Anto, a bookbinding executive, told police that a month ago his wife had returned from Italy, where she had been treated for a nervous disorder. Handless Friends Go td State Fair Probate Judge Raphael G. Phillips, of Bay City, and his seventeen-year-old handless protege. Harry A. Hinkkanen, of 5738 Maryland Ave., Detroit, spent Labor Day together at the Michigan State Fair. These two have spent every holiday together since j la.io wnen tne boy lost his hands in a bomb explosion. At that time, Judge rhillips, who also lost his hands 16 years ago when a gun he was carrying exploded, visited Hinkkanen and the two became fast friends. "I knew every thought that went through the boy's head as he stared at the stumps that were once hands," Judge Phillips said. "I taught Harry how to use his silverware, how to typewrite, and all the things I had to learn to do." Kinkkanen was host to the Judge and his family at dinner after the fair. ftfc . .1 M ' lrOt iif" I I Twenty-year-old Freddie Kin-ev of Homer, Calhoun County, waited seven long years to achieve uccess in 4-H Club ram competition at the Michigan State Fair. He first entered the tests when he just had reached 14, In 1932, but it was not until Monday that he tasted of glory. Freddie's Shropshire ram won U,e grand championship in its class and the blue in Freddie's eyes were mere pencil lines so big was his smile when the judges announced their decision to a satisfied crowd. The youthful Kinney had bred many a ram since he had entered the competition, but none the like of the one he exhibited victoriously, officials and spectators alike were agreed. His Final Opportunity Kinney's last chance to win a championship came Monday, since under 4-H rules a boy or a girl is ineligible to exhibit livestock upon reaching the twenty-first year. The grand championship in the Guernsey female division went to Kalph Cobb, 15 years old, of Goodrich, with his two-year-old entrant, while the junior championship, reserve, was captured by Betty Thomas, of Lake Orion. Judging of the 4-H entrants opened the experts' labors to determine the best in showings of horses, cattle, both dairy and beef, sheep, steer and swine. Mickey Cochrane hopes to produce a champion with his Aberdeen Angus which is entered in the steer judging. I.sbey Estimates Attendance General Manager Frank N. Is-bey looked for a Labor Day crowd of between 130,000 and 150,000, despite the many other attractions sfheduled on the holiday. By 10:30 p. m. Monday, 100.149 persons had visited the Fair. Until Monday, 422,193 persons had passed through the turnstiles, he said, which was about 1,000 more than the entire attendance total for the 1937 Fair, which lasted 10 days.

Fuad Mukerrij, secretary of the Arab National Committee for the Defense of Palestine in Damascus, declared Monday night. He spoke at a banquet in the Detroit-Leland Hotel which closed the three-day third annual convention of the Arab National Convention. "There is in Palestine a real Arab revolt against British imperialism and political Zionism, which is the spearhead of British Imperialism." Mukerrij continued. "It is a revolt of the majority against an alien minority which seeks to dominate it. It is not, however, a terroristic movement. Not Anti-Semitic, lie Says "The Arabs are not anti-Semitic, but they are anti-Zionist, Tht Jews of Egypt and Iraq have recently aligned themselves against Zionism. The only solution to the whole problem is for the Zionist! to pecept in Palestine the American principle of democracy and maiority rule." "The Arab national movement in the Near East is not merely ft r-tionalistic movement, but a ren-. 1 :ice," said Kakhry Bey Far- Syrian commissioner to thi New York World's Fair and a former general serving under Lawrence of Arabia. "The Arab national movement is not a movement affecting a few Arabs. It is now fermenting among th masses and is manifesting itself in Its welfare organizations and ita culture." Praises American' Work He praised the work of Americans in Syria where the University of Beirut, founded by Americans, is a major institute of learning. Prior to the banquet the convention, which has been attended by more than 150 Arabs from 10 states and four countries, elected Dr. Fuad Shutara, of New York, president. Other officers elected were John-Soof, of Detroit, vice president; Hablb Katiba, of New York, secretary; Ahmed Bader, of Detroit, assistant secretary, and Richard Zaid, second assistant secretary.

A beautician is a man who understands women. He tells her to her face. Our grandmothers didn't have any beauty parlors. They let nature take its course, but our modern gals think a wrinkle in the forehead is more dangerous thin a Caesarian operation for quintuplets. The National Hairdressers and Cosmetologists Association, to be serious about this matter, represents the fourth largest industry in America. It is their tremendous task to make all women beautiful, even when it is in defiance of the laws of nature. However, to close on a chivalric note, the average American woman is not as bad as she is painted. Fake Pass Book Is Good for Teller Is Deceived by Forged O.K. A swindler who induced a Chatham (Ont.) bank teller to turn over $900 on a fake pass book was sought in Windsor and Detroit Mondav. The swindler, appearing much 1 axe a successrui Business man, entered the bank Saturday afternoon and presented a pass book showing $900 on deposit and told Teller James Grant that he wanted the money. Grant told him that he would have to get an "o.k." from the accountant. The man left anil returned shortly with the Initials A. C. written on the pass book. The accountant's name is A. Cameron, so Grant accepted the book and gave the man eight K)0 and two 550 notes. The shortage showed up that evening when the day's business was checked.

Nelson, of the Acci dent Prevention Bureau, and offi eers who investigated an accident in which Slawicki was involved Sunday night. Slawicki will appear in Traffic Court Tuesday to explain why his car struck that of Jerome Banas-zewski, of 5933 Lucky Place, at Mt. Elliott and Harper Aves. Slawicki investigated the damage to his own machine but left the scene without attempting to ascertain the extent of damage to the other car, witnesses said. Onlookers caught the officer at Frontenac and Miles Ave. and held him until police arrived. Slawic-ki's immediate suspension was ordered by Frank Burczyk, district inspector. Injured Man Is Found Unconscious on Tracks A man found critically injured at 5:30 a.m. Monday at Woodward Ave. and Balmoral Drive was identified late in the day as William BIrs, 65 years old, of 4012 Brush St., attendants at. Redford Receiving Hospital said. Detectives Laurence Keiffer and Bert Berry, of the Accident Prevention Bureau, were assigned to investigate how Bias was injured. Bias was unconscious when a street-car motorman found him lying across the car tracks. Community Chest Gifts Show Decline of 3.7 Pet. NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (A.P.) Nine million persons in 475 cities have given $83,871,576 to community chest funds so far this year, the Community Mobilization for Human Needs announced today. The total is only 3.7 per cent under the 1937 figure despite the fact that philanthropic gifts in general have dropped off 30 per cent, said Charles P. Taft II., of Cincinnati, chairman of the With the beauteous head of Kay Porter, Detroit model, for demonstration, George Turek, of Chicago, won first place in the hair-styling contest in the Hotel Statler Monday night and received the designation, "National Hair Stylist," from the National Hairdressers and Cosmetologists Association, Inc. Entrants in the contest were required to show their originality in the art of coiffure. Among the first three winners was a Detroit Catholics Urged to Combat Reds Warnings Given at Workers' Meeting Pleas for development of a social program based on the spiritual fundamentals of Catholicism to combat the growth of communism and materialism in the labor movement marked the closing session of the three-day Catholic Worker Colloquium Monday night in St. Francis' Hospitality Housp, Fourteenth Ave. and Dalzclle St. The speakers w c re Robert Walsh, business manager of the Catholic Worker of England: Jack Connolly, of the Social Forum, Toronto, Ont; the Rev. Sebastian Erhachcr, president of Duns Scotus College and chaplain of the Association of Catholic Trade Unions, and Peter Maurin, philosopher, ex-hobo and co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement. Walsh warned that communists were rapidly gaining control of the labor movement in England and predicted an eventual clash there between Communists and Catholics for domination. That clash, he declared, will be duplicated in America. Unless the Catholics win the struggle, he said, "England will go more and more atheistic, more and more materialistic, more and more communistic." Connolly said that Catholics must eliminate hatreds in their own ranks and "admit our faults." Maurin advocated personalism, humanism and Catholicism as superior to cither "socialistic communism" or nationalistic capitalism." The afternoon session of the colloquium was addressed by Richard Deverall, co-editor of the Christian Front, and Paul Weber, president of the Detroit Newspaper Guild. Holiday Throngs See Boat Classic And Picnickers Make a Day of It, Too Continued from Tage One The sides and both ends of the course were packed w'th every conceivable kind of water craft, rowboats jostling aristocratic-looking yachts in holiday camaraderie. Keenly Interested in Races Aside from the fact that the crowd was indulging the Detroit failing for wanting to be where the crowd is, it was evident that a keen interest was taken in the proceedings. As each heat began, the throng ceased to flow back and forth and became immobile while the motors roared. Between heats, however, those at the south end of the course exchanged places with the north-enders. It was much like a trick motion picture, with the sudden stops which seemed actually to arrest action in midstride. One almost expected to see them go into reverse as if at the whim of a facetious operator. Loudspeakers, mounted on the Naval Reserve training ship Dubuque, kept the crowd informed of the events and results. The decks of the ship were colorful with the dress uniforms of officers and men and the gay frocks of their women guests. Tarking Space at Premium Ironically there was more parking space for automobiles along Jefferson Ave. all day than in the, streets to the north. For four blocks on both sides of E. Grand Blvd. and back as far as E. Lafayette Ave. curbs were lined solidly with cars, while parking lots did a capacity business. Jefferson Ave., on the other hand, escaped congestion, probably because motorists decided it was no use looking for space there. Perfect weather, including a partly cloudy sky, made it an excellent day for the events and brought out an extraordinarily well-behaved crowd. There were very few evidences of drunkenness, and the main problem of police seemed to be in riding herd on straying youngsters. At regular intervals announcement was made over the public address system that worried mothers could collect their children at the Naval Armory. Detroiter Missing 7 Days Is Found in Kansas City Relatives of Howard A. Wood, 29 years old, of 16514 Braverland Ave., missing from his home since Aug. 29. informed police Monday that he had been located in Kansas City. According to his wife Anna, Wood was last seen when he left home in his car to make a business call. Kansas City officers said that Wood had told them that he had left his automobile in Dayton, O., but did not remember on what street. Members of the family will go to Kansas City to return Wood to his home, Mrs. Wood said. Msdisen Ave., Dsfrcit hairdresser, Sterling Reavcling. of 118 Clifford St., who won third prize. Second prize went to Glenn Schamp, of Dayton, O. The three were presented with cups, while plaques were given to the next six entrants. New York Authority Speaks Among speakers at Monday's sessions of the organization's convention was Charles Brock, New York authority on hairdressing, who spoke on "how to create the illusion of a perfectly balanced face. "Just as other artists depend on optical illusions," Bock told the gathering, in which nearly every state in the Union was represent ed, "so does the skillful hair dresser employ the same principles in styling the hair." He said that the hairdresser should diagnose each woman's in dividual case, taking into account her figure and face, and should attempt to accentuate her best individual features. Faws Not Balanced Almost every face has a larger side, and nearly every nose, re gardless of how straight it appears, tends to lean slightiy toward the right or ieft, Bock pointed out. He then outlined a svstem he has evolved to create the illusion of a perfectly balanced face. He parts the hair on the smaller side of the face, brushing over the greater portion of the hair to the larger side. This tends to make the larger side of the face appear small. He determines the leaning of the nose and, in parting the hair, makes the part parallel with the way the nose leans. Horizontal lines (in the finished coiffure) broaden a narrow face; vertical lines narrow a broad one, he said. Hair Stylos Presented Presenting national hair styles was Ernest Kurschat, of Detroit, while Phillip Edelmayer, also of Detroit, took part in the discussion and presentation of the controversial "haircut wave." Up until Monday night, 5.000: experts had registered, or one-half of the total number expected by Wednesday, the final day of the convention. j Tuesday's program will run ; from the delegate session at S a. m. to the National Hair Styles Review under the direction of( Myndall Cain, mistress of cere-' monies, and the presentation of, winners in the Coiffure Guild Challenge Shield Marcelling Con-j test at 10 p. m.
