The shooting started in Joe Black burn's Restaurant, Longworth and Plum Streets when the bullet vic tim, registered as Jesse Owens, 36 years old, 625 Saratoga Street, Newport fired three shots at Ned Collins, waiter, 520 Plum Street. Patrolmen Arthur McCafferty and John Reid, in civilian clothes, were passing the restaurant when Owens ran out. As he ran through an alley, McCafferty pursued him. He fired a shot at the officer. Mc-Cafferty's return fire struck Owens in the left leg. Owens struggled back to Plum Street, where he pointed his revolver at Reid. As he was pulling the trigger on two cartridges, which failed to fire, McCafferty fired another shot which hit him in the abdomen. McCafferty's last shot was a well-placed one. Reid by that time was bending over the Negro, trying to take his revolver away. Lieutenant Otto Eschenbach and Sergeant Harry Singleton said the trouble began when George Weather, 426 Smith Street, took exception to a remark Owens made to his wife, Ruby. Police found the Weathers woman on the floor when they entered tne restaurant, .believing she had been shot, she was sent to the hospital. She had only fainted. SHORT WAVE FAVORED FOR TREATING DISEASE The electro-magnetic short-wave method of medical diathermy, by which waves of energy are sent from insulated coils into the body to produce localized heat for treat ing various diseases, is the most efficient clinical method for pro ducing deep heat, Dr. John S. Coul ter, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy, Northwestern Univer sity Medical School, told the Acad emy of Medicine last night. Both the physiological and clinical effects of the method are due to the heat produced, Dr. Coulter said. Heretofore much medical diathermy has been done by pass ing currents of electricity through the body from an electrode placed directely against one point on the body s surface to another electrode, in both instances, the heat results from the flesh's resistance to the current. Dr. Coulter's paper was prepared with the assistance of Stafford L. Osborne, Research Assistant at Northwestern, where extensive research on relative efficiency of various types of short wave medi cal diathermy has been going on. The paper was discussed by Dr. Edwin L. Libbert. Dr. Coulter told the physicians that the American Medical Associa tion's Council on Physical Therapy, of which he is a member, stands ready to advise them on diathermy machines best suited to their re quirements.

San Francisco, March 16 (AP) Charges that San Francisco police were collecting $1,000,000 annually in graft, $324,000 of it from houses of prostitution, appeared today in the final report of investigator Warren Atherton, who spent $60,000 and more than a year in his inquiry. The investigator, a former Ju- tice Department agent, said the uu- enforcibllity of laws against prostitution, gambling, and other alleged vices eccounted for the graft system. He recommended licensing, which he said would not increase gambling or prostitution, and would reduce graft tribute by $120,000 a vear- . . ....... Atherton said he found aDout 10a "old-established houses of prostitu tion" in San Francisco; that to open a new one the operators first had to pay police $500 to $750, and then $250 monthly. The investigator asserted there were 150 places in the city where bookmakers took bets on dogs and horse races, and they paid the blue- coats approximately $15,000 monthly "for protection." The graft investigation had its inception nearly two years ago when John V. Lewis, Collector of Internal Revenue, told a luncheon club that income tax investigation of certain Police Department members indicated they had become wealthy through pay-offs. The investigation led to the resignation or dismissal of several officers. One or more of them ad mitted possessing fortunes of $200,000, but denied their wealth was tainted by graft. Today's report was made public officially by presiding Superior Judge George J. Steiger. NEGRO WITNESS Raps At Baldwin. Says Defendant Tried To Shift Blame. : Former Chauffeur, Grilled By Lawyers For Defense, Holds To Testimony. Huntington, W. Va., March 16 (AP) Mrs. Juliette Enslow's Negro chauffeur, Judge Johnson, said from the witness stand today he told police last October he believed Charles Baldwin was trying to "pin" the slaying of the wealthy widow on him. Johnson, whose suspicions led to the finding of Mrs. Enslow's body, was on the stand all afternoon of the second day of the trial of Bald win, son of Mrs. Knslow by a previous marriage. Johnson's testimony was the sub ject of vigorous attack by Bald win s attorneys, who contended his original statements to police and at the forty-one-year-old defendant's hearing in November were at variance with parts of his testimony at the trial. Baldwin, against whom the state has asked for a first-degree verdict on a charge of havine killed his socially prominent mother, showed the same interest in the second day's proceedings as he did at ff.of ll.tAnln -.1 l.r conferring with his attorneys. Colonel George S. Wallace, co- Prosecutor, asked the Negro chauf-' feur: ac tne time you were Deing questioned by police didn't you say, 'I know he (Baldwin) is trying to pin it on me, I am innocent but since he is so smart I am going to tell everything I know?' " ' Yes, sir," the witness replied. Wallace continued: "You told police that he had you up in his room that afternoon (Oc--tober 17) and asked you a lot of questions and for that reason he was trying to pin it on you? "Yes, sir." After another argument, Wallace put in the record a statement by' Johnson to police that Baldwin told him "don't tell them (the police) anything about that basement. Don't take them In that basement." In opening it&case the state said it would show that two stained handkerchiefs and a key to the bathroom of Mrs. Knslow's suite were found in the basement.

PHILOSOPHY Is Prescribed As Cure For Social And Economic Condition By Bishop Oxnant At Good Will Meeting. WEST POINTERS IN PLAY Can't Cash 'Em! Columbus, Ohio, March 16 (AP) W. H.

L " f ' A social and economic philosophy growing out of religion and based on universal good will was prescribed as a solution of social and economic issues by Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam of the Omaha area of the Methodist Episcopal Church and former President of DePauw University, last night at the annual meeting of the Good Will organization at Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church. Whither America?" was his sub ject. In answer to the question, he said he "did not know," but that the direction to be taken would be determined by the actual wishes of the nation's citizens when they face and consider the problems of the time, which he said was an if moment," or crisis, in the history of the country. . Not mere "burning of incense before the Democratic form," but sincere and intelligent support of the democratic ideal is necessary for a satisfactory solution of problems of liberty, equality, and fraternity, he said. Some intimation of the forthcoming answer to the question "Whither America?" may be seen in the extent to which people appreciate and support good will movements, he said.

Others who participated were Mrs. H. Les ter Smith, Blanche Brown and Mar garet Brown, E. J. Lorenz, Mrs. Daniel J.
