All Possible Pressure Is Likely To Be Used ffo Force Employers To Support Blue Eagle Restriction On Federal Contracts Is Starter. Washington, August 12 (AP) A multitude of additional workers were swept today within the embrace of the NRA's Blue Eagle, but the problem of fastening codes of fair competition upon the nation's basic Industries still hung perplex- lngly over the national recovery program. For five Important Industries, Hugh S. Johnson, Recovery Admin istrator, signed Into effectiveness modified presidential reemploy ment agreement fixing wages and hcurs which employers may adopt to obtain the Blue Eagle pending completion of permanent codes, These were designed to increase the nation's purchasing power by millions of dollars and put thou sands of workers back on jobs through their provisions for maximum hour regulation' and mini mum wages. UTILITIES ARE AFFECTED, They affected the electric light and power, gas utility Including natural and manufactured gas- telephone, canning and construction industries. ' Jn addition tempo) ry wage and hour agreements were promulgated for emDlovers In the paper and pulp, fruit and flavoring sirups, carter, suspender and belt and marking device industries. In all, more than 2,000,000 work ers were affected, NRA estimated, Carrying above the three-score and-ten mark the number of indus tries for which temporary wage and hour provisions have been approved. IiT addition to the six permanent codes the campaign still left untouched the steel, oil, lumber, automobile, coal and other basic indus tries, employing millions of men, except for temporary wage and hour provisions In effect for petro leum. HOW MATTERS STAND. "Here is the status: The automobile industry has sub mitted a code and a hearing date has been set for August 18. Henry Ford has given no indication of his attitude. '; The steel code has been through hearings and the evidence now is being annotated. Time probably will be required before K. M. Simpson, Deputy Administrator, is ready with his report for Johnson. An agreement then will be sought from the industry. Robert P. Lamont, President of the Iron and Steel Institute, has notified Johnson the industry can go no further In compromises. The oil, industry, the third largest In the country, still is far from an internal agreement, with price reg ulation and production control the principal issues. TO PRESENT PROGRAM. A modified form of price regula tion for the Industry was under stood in authoritative circles today to be contemplated by the Adminis tration in a program to be presented to the industry Wednesday in a continuation of hearings. Mean time a wage and hour agreement is In effect. The lumber Industry code vir tually is ready for presentation to Johnson by the Deputy Administrator. Officials expect President Roosevelt to receive it soon for signature. The bituminous coal hearings upon more than a score of rival codes presented by various segments of the industry ended today with an agreement apparently far away and the labor provisions revolving about the "collective bargaining" principle of the Recovery Act still unsettled. The question of just what the guarantee of collective bargaining Continued On Page 20, Column 8, SEARCH IS CALLED OFF For Boy, 9, Bitten By Mad Dog-Receives Medical Attention.

This morn ing the lad was placed under the care of a physician for treatment and the city-wide search was called off. ' . FATE OF EIGHT Is Still Undetermined Silence Veils Safety Of Cincinnati Priest In Isolated Chinese City, Held By Rebels. Hankow, China, August 12 (AP) No further word has been received here as to the safety of the two priests and six nuns, Passionist missionaries at Yuanchow, which has been held by rebel Chinese since June 27. Although Rev. Arthur Benson, procurator of the American Pas sionist Mission here, has been un able to communicate with the mis sionaries since the town was seized. he believes they are safe. Those trapped there are Rev. Edward McCarthy, Boston; Rev. Francis Flaherty, 2621 Hemlock Street, Cincinnati, and Sisters Gene vieve Ryan, Christiana Werth, Magdaline Ivan, Rosarlo Goss, Salntanne Callahan and Mark Mul len, who were sent to China from Pittsburgh. It was learned today that United States Consular authorities have approached Ho Chine, Governor of Hunan, with a request that the Americans at Yuanchow be rescued. The belief prevailed here, how ever, that the representations will have little effect since the Gov ernor is considered virtually help less to interfere with the activities of General Li Chiao, the provincial military overlord and son-in-law of General Ho. Chinese politicians here say the Yuanchow siege is a result of the intense enmity between General Chen Yao, a rebel military chieftain who declines to recognize the authority of provincial officials, and General Li. According to the accepted story here, Chen, when on presumably frledly terms with Li, Invited the latter to visit him, but during a feast attempted to assassinate Li, who escaped declaring he would get revenge. In the middle of June Chen and his followers established headquar ters at Yuanchow after expelling a small provincial force. Li immediately gathered an army and started a siege.

Joseph Collins," of St. Louis Church, visited the boy, who had passed a restless night. They sought the privacy of a small office in the jail, and there the priest heard Henkel's story of his mis deeds and gave communion. Later Alfred C. Crouse, Chief Probation Officer of the Juvenile Court, interviewed the boy. Crouse said that nothing new was learned In the interview. Proceedings in the case are being held up pending the arrival of Judge Charles W. Hoffman, of Juvenile Court Crouse said that the Judge's family had received a BOLD SHERIFF Takes On Killers. Slays Two And Catches Third Member Of Mob That Had Just Meted Underworld Death To Chicago Fugitive In Kansas City Streets. Operators Of Night Clubs, Henchmen Of Political Leader, Are Victims Of "Sanguinary Battle. Kansas City, Mo., August 12 (AP) A Sheriff who carries his riot gun to lawn parties chanced upon a gang murder today in time to visit swift death on two of the executioners and capture a third member of their group. The victim of the underworld death sentence, slain as the sharp-shooting Sheriff, Thomas B. Bash, went into action with his weapon, was Ferris J. Anthon, a fugitive from a Chicago indictment naming him as a member of a liquor syndicate. ' The men who died in the assassins' automobile, from which burst the bullets that killed Anthon, were Sam Scola and Gus Fasone. They had been Identified as operators of nigth clubs here and as henchmen of John Lazia, Northside political leader under indictment for Income tax evasion. HARD EGG WHIMPERS. A ballstics expert who examined the bullet that killed Anthon said It was fired from a .45-callber automatic pistol. That also was the description of a gun dropped by Charles Gargotta, captured by Bash when the gunman pleaded for his life after emptying his weapon at the battling Sheriff. A companion of Gargotta escaped. "No gangster from now on will walk the streets of this city or drive Its streets in high-powered cs without molestation from my men," Sheriff Bash said. The Sheriff added he had ob tained fingerprints to aid in the search for the fourth member of the killers' party. T. A. J. Mastln, Prosecutor, said he probably would file a first de gree murder charge against Gar gotta in Anthon's death. SOON ON FIRING LINE. The staccato bark of firearms along Armour Boulevard, in the midtown apartment hotel district, and the screams of a terror- stricken woman arrested the atten tion of Sheriff Bash as he was re turning with Mrs. Bash, 14-year-old Melva Taylor, and a deputy, Law rence Hodges, from a lawn party. Stopping his automobile not far from that of the assassins, Ba3rt seized his riot gun and dismounted to investigate. He was forced intol the fight almost Immediately by an attack upon him from the killers' car. To keep the killers from escaping the deputy swung the automobilo containing Mrs. Bash and the 14- Contlnued On Page 4, Column 8. Gang Theory letter from Sault Ste.

Meanwhile, the youth, who says he killed Baily in self-defense, was wishing in his cell for "something to take my mind" off the case. Since he was returned from Meridian, Miss., where he was caught with the automobile stolen from Bally, Henkel has been restless, worrying about his case and frequently asking visitors and attendants what the public thinks of him. Ralph Tooker, attorney, yesterday said that Juvenile Court probably will have to choose among three courses.

Columbus, Ohio, August 12 (AP) Despite the self-sacrificing efforts of a white woman to save them, two Cincinnati Negro youths must die Monday night in the electric- chair at Ohio Penitentiary. They are James and Joseph Murphy, convicted of first degree murder In the slaying of Harry Frledhoff, Silverton bank cashier. A 30-day reprieve was granted the doomed pair July 14 after Mrs. Mildred M. Bonnie, Cincinnati, had told the State Parole Board she was "positive" they were victims of "mistaken identity." But. today, after having weighed all the evidence In the case, Governor White refused to intervene. In a dramatic appearance before the Eoard on the eve of the scheduled executions,, Mrs. Bonnie asserted she had not come to their defense sooner because she was with a married man when she saw two Negroes run from the bank at Silverton the day of the holdup. An affidavit submitted to the board named George Sweeney, New town, O., as her companion at Sil verton the day Friedhoff was slain.

You say that I chair looks ! kind a low . . . i Ha! If it were any lower, the price would be sitting on nie iiour. wnicn may sound strange, what with all you've been hearing about furniture prices riding a skyrocket during the past few months. That's true. But those are wholesale prices. The stores are being big-hearted about the furniture they bought last spring, when prices were down in the sub-cellar. You can buy that dinky English lounge chair right now for a song. You can buy a dandy living room suite, dining room suite or bedroom outfit for a couple of songs. You can during these August furniture sales. After that? Weil, don't say we didn't warn you. Don't say we didn't tell you to tako a look at the time-weary overstuffed In your living room, at the battle-scarred veterans in the dining room. Don't say we didn't tell you that now's the time to retire it and get new furniture in it place, before prices rise up in wrath. Or something. Say. and you could use a table over In that corner, couldn't you? And a new lamp or two? And a new rug? Better trot right to town In the morning and look up some of these furniture and furnishings bargains. THE CINCINNATI f ENQUIRER QiiiiiiimimiHiiiiiiMiMiiiiiMimiiiiiiiitiMMiiiHiiiMiiQ VIVA BALBO!

Eastern Standard Time) from Ostla, at the mouth of the Tiber, where they landed in view of 300,000 spectators an hour and a half earlier.

Bands played Fascist airs, particularly the Fascist hymn to youth. All buildings, the Coliseum included, were resplendent under flood lights. In the midst of the triumphal celebration, after the first deafening roars of applause had died down, General Balbo spoke to the throng, saying: "In the name of the Atlantic crews I thank you. You have granted us a magnificent welcome. "However, I do not want you to lose sight of the reality that we are only humble soldiers of a great chief in whose name it is sweet and easy to achieve all victories. "Long live Mussolini!"

Country To Triple Supply Of Medicinal Liquor in '34 Washington, August 12 (AP) Seven million gallons of medicinal liquor may be made in the United States next year exactly three and one-half times the amount permitted In 1933. This increase was authorized to day by the Bureau of Internal Revenue with the explanation that it was required because of heavier consumption since Congress relaxed the laws governing liquor prescrip tions. It was said unofficially that the total would have to be raised btill more if the Eighteenth Amendment should be repealed, or if the demand for prescriptions should in crease further. Since 1929, 2,000,000 gallons have been authorized annually. The present supply of medicinal liquor was estimated by the bureau at approximately 11,000,000 gallons of aged btock.
