Guard and Two Convicts KQIed in Disorders in Two Texas PenalInstitutions.
Huntsville, Tex., May 11.— (A P )— The death of a guard and twopris­ oners and the escape of three con­ victs today marked bloodydisorders at two of the many units In the state’s prisonsystem.
A break In which a guard and a prisoner were killed at the EasthamPrison Farm and fights at the main penitentiary here, occurred lessthan 18 hours after Raymond Hamilton, southwest desperado and hiscom­ panion in crime, Joe Palmer, were electrocuted for slaying aguard.
Authorities said they found no connection between the uprising*,and the execution of the two killers
ho led the Eastham Farm escape ' which Major Crowson, aguard,
killed In 1934. Parolee Heads Break
Jack Peddy, who once gained free­ dom by forcing a parole, led theprison farm break 40 miles north of here. Using a smuggled gun, hekUled VlrgU Welch, seriously wounded Homer Parker, convict turnkey,and beat Guard Tom Ste­ phens into unconsciousness.
Peddy was shot down as he, two murderers and a robber fled across afield. The guards, thinking the leader was dead, continued in pur­suit of the- other convicts. They returned later to find Peddygone. He was shot to death two hours later as he walked out of aclump of trees.
The others, Sam Grant and R. C. Tipton, both serving life sentencesfor murder, and Harry Lutlow, serv­ ing 38 years for robbery, fledInto the Trinity river bottoms.
Gang* In Uelae At the prison here, Ernest Young,
whp last'January came close to kill­ ing a convict by cutting histhroat over a dice game, was stabbed to death in a gang flght About100 prisoners took part In the flght. which came shortly after analter­ ation in the prison between two ather convicts. Severalother pris­ oners were bruised.
New York, May 11.— (AP) Frederick Gross, 49-year-oId book­ keeper.waa charged with homicide today in connection with the po)sondeaths of his wife and four children
Gross was arraigned in a Brook­ lyn police court after he hadunder­ gone an all night questioning which, police said, had failedto shake him in his denial that he had used a rare poison to takethe lives of his wife, Katharine, 38, and the chil­ dren,Frederick, 9>4, Katharine, 7, Leo, 3, and Barbara, 18months.
Evidence allegedly obtained by a toxicologist using a spectographon tissue taken from the bodies of the mother and the son. Leon,caused District Attorney William F. X. Geogban to order the placingof a homicide charge against the prisoner.
A Rare Poison Investigators said Gross, a 820-a-
week bookkeeper for an Importing firm, had access to a stock ofpoison intended for killing rodents. Because it had been uaed sorarely In taking human life, they said, medical knowledge of Itseffect on the human body is limited.
The prisoner, wearer of an artifi­ cial leg the result of anaccident In Philadelphia In 1905, had only the nourishment of halfa sandwich and a cup of coffee during the grilling which, hadentered Its second day.
Investigators said the deaths re­ sulted from poison taken Infood.
Thinks Him Innocent Gross’s mother-in-law, Mrs. Olga
Beta, ta a Brooltlyn hospital suffer­ ing from symptoms ofpoisoning, professed her belief ta the book­ keeper’s innocenceearly today when authorities brought the man to the hospital. Theyhad planned to con­ front Gross with bis III mother-in- law, butchanged their plans when she declared she thought he wasinnocent.

Greeted By President In the warmth of a Washington
spring that contrasted atriki^ly with the howling winds of thePolar region, the sturdy craft Bear of Oakland pulled to the NavyYard late yesterday. Amid tumult and the sounds of cannon. AdmiralByrd stepped ashore to be greeted by President Roosevelt, GovernorPeery of Virginia, Clabinet officials. Con­ gressmen and a longlist of top- hatted or gold-braided personages.
“ Dick, I salute you,” the President said.
“Mr. President,” said Byrd, "I herewith report to you the return ofthe Byrd Antarctic Expedition n . Thanks to providence, every mimreached civilization safe and well."
Nation Proud In his more formal speech, the
President said: “To have carried these ship com­
rades to a dangerous outpost, to have developed your exploratoryand scientific work - through many month*, under the moat tryingcon­ ditions, and to have brought them all safely home to theirfamilies. Is an achievement of which the whole nation isproud."
Families of Byrd’s 100 men were on hand, their faces shiningwith

Meanwhile, there was talk In some Senate circles of reviving theVin­ son bonus bill if an expected veto of the Patman new currencymeasure should be upheld by the Senate.

67 Minnesota Farm Families Arrive in Alaska— Eager to StartWork.
(Coatlnued on Page T«d)
Palmer, Alaska, Mav 11.— (AP) —Men, women and children of 67Minnesota farm famillea, given a "new chance" by Uncle Sam, awokeon a chill morning today ta their promised land.
The night was cool—for It’s still early spring in this fertileMatanu- aka valley. Temporary tent homes ta which they spent theirfirst night was not a restful one for many of them.
Bright and early this morning, however, they were up, walkingabout, getting a better view of the valley and the “boom town"being ^ l l t for them. Among them was Herman , Schlittberger. ofMora Minn.
Good Farmland, “It looks like a fine farming dis­
trict," he said, comparing the ver­ dant country with the drought-swept middle-west the Colonists left a few weeks ago,
"1 am not going to ti:y to make good ;1 am going to make good. I’mused to hard work. I’ve expected
here I am, ready for
“ We’re going ahead with smiles on our faces.” his wife added.“We’ll make the beat of everything and there’s doubtless a goodcomfort­ able future ahead.”
Dramatic Scene The arrival of the Colonists last
night, after their 160-mlIe train trip north from Seward’ atAnchor­ age, 45 miles south of here, was a dramatic scene. Thechildren shout­ ed. Some of the older folks cheer-
Some had tears in their eyes. Several mothers, with babies In
their arms, were very serious as they got off the train.
Dinner was ready for them at the big commissary which has housedthe 500 CCC workers here for the last week. Little time was lostas- signing the families to their tempo­ rary homes and taunp?-king bag­ gage and getting settled for the Bight.
erspoon, the future direction of the Metropolitan Opera was oncemore the topic of dominant interest in music circles today.
Paul D. Cravath, chairman of the opera's board of directors, waaex­ pected within the next few days to call a meeting to consider asucces­ sor to Mr. Witherspoon who. but a few weeks ago, hadsucceeded Gtulio Gatti-Casazza as general manager of the worldfamous "Met.’’
With much work still to do on the coming season's plana, littledelay waa looked for.
Mr. Witherspoon, who had intend­ ed to sail with his wife forEurope today, had completed the prelimin­ ary announcement of the1935-36 season but a few hours before his death lateyesterday.
Death, resulting almost Inatan- tancoualy from a heart attack, camea few hours after the first 1935-36 posters bearing his name andtitle had been pasted up outside the his­ toric operabuilding.
Came Quickly Earle Lewis, treasurer of the
Metropolitan Opera ' Association, who. with Mr. Witherspoon, hadJust entered the opera offices, said:
“He simply sank to the floor and that was all . . . 1 thought atHrat he had stumbled. 1 put out my hand to steady him and he fell.It was all over in a minute."
Until the selection of a successor, these plans will be carried onby the two assistant general managers, Ed­ ward Ziegler and EdwardJohnson, the Canadian tenor.
Johnson was in Detroit, singing ta performances of Deems Taylor’s"Peter Ibbetaon", with Lucrezla Bori. It waa unde.atood he wouldreturn to New York as soon aa pos, sible.
Financial Plans While, the directors made no pub­
lic comment, it was emphasized that the basic arrangement for thecom­ ing season would continue —the ar­ rangement by which theJutUlard Foundation guarantees 8150,000 of any deficit.
Ohe condition o f this arrange­ ment was the selection of Mr. With­erspoon, who was closely identified with the Jullliard school ofmusic and the foundation.
John Erakine, the writer and Columbia professor, who is chair­ manof the JuIUard trustees, was recently made a director of theMetropolitan.
Some persons close to both the opera and the Julltard Foundationthought It likely Ersklne would be named as general manager of the"Met."
If he refuses, the choice would probably fall between Ziegler, whohas been assistant under Gatti- Casazza for the last 20 years, andJohnson.

Strict Censor^ip Clamped Down On AO Movements of W a rx ^ ^ t —Nothing Is Known of^^ereabonts of 46 Seaplanes Which Hopped OffYesterday.
Honolulu. May 11.— (A P )—Hint* of even more amazing aerial opera­tions came from high naval sources today while the Navy’s greatarma­ da of 46 seaplanes continued Its un­ precedented secretmaneuver* somewhere ta the Pacific weet of Hawaii.
Reports were that 460 aircraft would take part, but amplificationwas not forthcoming here, nor would naval officials at WashingtonComment.
The aircraft are aboard surfac* vessels of the fleet now maneuver­ing under simulated wartime condi­ tions in a great triangular areain the Pacific bounded by the Aleutian Islands on the north, thewestern seaboard of the United State* on the east and Hawaii on thesouth.
Sketchy preliminary announce­ ments concerning the maneuver* in­dicated that planes aboard three huge carriers would figureconspic­ uously ta the war games.
Censorship la On So effective., meanwhile, was a
censorship clamped down upon the movement of the 46-plane patrol,that Honolulu waa without even a hint as to its whereabouts,although Navy officials said frankly they knew what the planes weredoing.
It was pointed out that the air­ craft were of utmost Importance tothe present activities of the fleet and that to acquaint a mythicalenemy with their operations would destroy theireffectiveness.

Washington,. May 11.— (AP) — Justice Department agents soon mayhave a new weapon—a secret radio system—to aid them In theirefforts against kidnapers, bank rob­ bers, jewel thieves and othercrimi­ nals.
An Informed source said today that radio engineers have been ex­perimenting for some time along this line. Plans call for puttingthe central broadcasting system atop tin new justice building here,with the country divided Into reception zones
Tbe radio plan has been mention- e<l as a po.sslblllty by bothAttorney General Cummings and J. Fldgar Hoover, director of theFederal Bu- reiiu of Invc.stlgatlon.
Hoover's Idea, he said today, would be for a continuous hookup withkey points In 32 cities and with mobile radio units in fast au- touobllea and possibly airplanes.
The system should be capable of instent expansion to link state andmetropo dan police and even sher­ iffs irtl crpstahles whenever awide .search was needed over a large area Hoover said.
He said the solution of technical prfjblemfl now being studiedwould make wireless an effective weapon In such hunts as the onelast Janu­ ary for Alvin Kurpls when ho es­ caped after a gunbattle with offi­ cers at Atlantic City, N. J.
If a radio had been available then thousands of ,)ollce officerscould have been warned quickly and con­ stantly informed of thechase which extended along the Atlantic sea­ board, HooverIndicated.

For the first time In the history of Manchester High school, thelead­ ing social event of the school year - the Junior Prom willnot be held this year, It was announced today, due to the lock ofInterest In the affair on the part of students. The Prom wasscheduled to take place next Friday night, after having beenpostponed several times, but now It has beeh deemed advisable tocancel the date.
The Junior Promenade has been a fixture at the local' school formany years. It Is always given by the Junior Class In honor of theSenior Class, all members of the lat­ ter being invited guests atthe af­ fair. The expense of the Prom, therefore, Is home by thejuniors and other! who attend.
The expense of conducting a Prom Is high, it being necessary to ex­pend funds on a good orchestra, re­ freshments and decorations.After the Prom date was set this year. It was found that theprobable attend­ ance would be small and that to go through withthe affair would mean a heavy deficit. Rather than shoul­ der thefinanelal rfsponslblllty, the Junior Class voted to omit theProm.

ONE BIG REASON iWhy Manchester Ought to Own Its Own
During the time that Samuel Ferguson’s Connecticut Power Com­ panyhas owned the stock of the Manchester KIcctric Company, from 192Hto 19.3.5, more than #600,000 has been paid out in dividends on thelocal company’s stock. <
This sum is just the dividends that have been paid on the stock,not the profits. The actual proiits have been much more thanthat.
This amount of #600,000 and mure, approaches ^hat might be deter­mined as a fair valuation of the Manchc.ster Electric Companv’sproper­ ty. and
In the entire history of the Manche.stcr Electric Company, only$80,000 have been invested In the business from sources outside ofthe company Income, and that was previous to 1913. Dividends of$44,000 were paid during that time.
It looks ns if the Manche.ster EIcctlic Company ha.s been a vervprofit­ able venture.
The Town could make a good thing out of the electric business,also. It is one of the most profitable lines in the worldtoday.
It is a public service that ought to be owned by the Town andoperated for the benefit of the people.
Vote YES next Wedne.sday. May 15, and start to put the businesswhere it belongs—in the hands of the people.
These dividends and profits would look good In the Towntreasury.
A public meeting for the discu.ssion of a municipal electric plantfor Manchester will be held next Tuesday evening. May 14. in HighSchool Hall at 8 oclrck. The matter will be explained with facts,figures, and opinions. The public Is invited to come and take partin the discussion.

Suddenly all lights went out. This not only included the lights Inthe homes, but the street lights. The rainfall was heavy and thethunder loud.

Tbe bill to which the House con­ curred when Representative Kop-plemann brought It on the floor In its original form withoutawaiting action by the chairman of the Library Committee, which hadcon­ sidered it, provides for a -commis­ sion of six to be named bythe Speaker of the House, five Senators to be named by tbePresident of the Senate and five persons to be named by thePresident.
The provisions regarding member­ ship from the House was changedfrom five to six In the Senate com­ mute reputedly for the purposeof providing for the entire House dele­ gation from Connecticut. Onthe same basis, both Senators Maloney and Lonergan will be namedfrom the Senate while Vice President Garner must select threeothers, it is expected both he and President Roosevelt will chosenominees rec­ ommended by Senator Moloney.
Maloney said It he wore asked to suggest nominees for tbe commis­sion, he would accept the recommen­ dation of the chairman of theCon­ necticut Tercentenary commtasion.
The members wll serve without salary, but $10,000 was appointed inthe bill for their travelling ex­ penses. Their duties which areex­ pected to be light will probably in­ clude calling on thePresident to In­ vite formally him to visit Connecti­ cut for theservices and attending him on the trip.

Governor Cross hopes Connecticut might participate In tbe benefitsto be derived if Cong'-esa enacts the bill Introduced byRepresentative Fiilmner, (D., S. C.) appropriating $20,000,000 forthe purchase of land for state forests.
"While we have made a beginning In Connecticut by acquiring 65,000acres of state forest” he wrote Representative Citron, "the forestarea of the state is so extensive that It would be very helpfu forthe state to take advantage of this bill, if it should pass. As youpiobably know about 56 per cent of the area of Con­ necticut Is Inforest land."
Five months having passed since negotiations for a reciprocal tradeagreement with Switzerland were begun, reports have been receivedhere that an early announcement of its terms might beexpected.
Watch and clock manufacturers in Connecticut have demanded that Itcontain no concession tc possibly In­ creased Imports of Sw:bs timekeep­ ing devices or movements.

Backers of the Vinson bill, which provides for cash payment of thebonus but leaves the method of fi­ nancing open, have contendedthrfiughout the long bonus con­ troversy that It had a much betterchance to pass over a veto than the inflationary Patman bill.
They made this argument to the Senate In.trying to stop the Patmandrive, but the Senate would not lis­ ten.
Battle Not Over Administration leaders, who
favored the Patman bill on the theory It was easier to beat, dis­counted the possibility of further bonus action after a veto of thePatman bill. They have main­ tained. throughout, that senatorswould not have another chance at this session to pass a bonusbill.
Nevertheless, with overwhelming sentiment In both houses for cashpayment of the bonus In one form or another, some veteran senatorswere confident that a veto by the presi­ dent would not end thebonus battle even fr*r this session.
While they were looking ahead, veterans' leaders had not given upall hope on the Patman bill. The.v were directing a terrificpressure at the White House to persuade Presi­ dent Roosevelt tosign the bill and at the same time working desperately for votes Inthe Senate to override him if he wouldn’t.
In the senate yesterday. Senator Long (D., La.), referred to Presi­dent Roosevelt's war record and drew from Senator Tydlngs (D.,Md.). an angry warning that he might face something more than a"vocal” argument.
Tydlngs called upon Long to com­ pare his own record, fully awarethat Long did not serve, and when the Louisianan refused to discussit, Tydlngs said that he would.
What stirred Tydlngs’ Ire was a statement by Long that Mr. Roose­velt received $10,000 as assistant secretary of the navy during thewar, without facing a gun.

Editor of Advmooe. Out of faith and experience comes
fellowship. Such was the origin of the Christian Church, and suchhas been the o'Hgin of every new movement and organisation In thehistory of the church.
Sometimes the faith and the ex­ perience are narrow, and theresult­ ing movement and fellowship are aectional or sectarian.This, also, has been the history of the Christian church.
But In the beginning the church arose out of a very definiteexperi­ ence of repentance and salvation. Tbe church had no greattemples. There was no organization with worldly strength which menmight join for thO' sake of social prestige, or for the sake ofpower.
The church con.ilsted of small zroups of those who had found thelew experience of salvation nd life in Christ. These groups
''met In a measure of seclusion, with the threat of persecutionconstantly upon them.
One can hardly think of anyone joining the church In those days ex­cept from strong conviction and be­ cause the church represented hfel­ lowship In something more precious than anything that theworld offer­ ed. Tlie marvel Is that even under these conditionsthe members of this early church were not always Ideal. « « «
We need only read Paul's epistles to see how even In this primitivechurch, where everything connected with It seemed to involvesacrifice, there were tho.se whose lives were not proof againstvice and whose spirits were not free from narrow' ness.
But here in our lesson, in the record of the first gathering andfel­ lowship, we have the revelation of an ideal and practice soglorious that there seemo little hope of h’a- manity rising to it.So seriously did these early Christians take the words of Jesusconcerning brotherly love and the surrender of all to God, thatthey were willing to disregard their personal possessions, to haveall things in common, and even to sell what they had so that anyman who needed might be supplied.
If one' could find that quality of Christian character andChristian courage more widely exemplified the solution of life’sproblems would be easy, particularly in an age when we havediscovered that man’s con­ quest of nature is able to provide anabundance of all that is necessary for human life and far beyondman's need.
To imagine, however, that such a state of society could be organ­ized out of a world of unregeneratc men, whose hearts and habitsade dominated by self-interest, is to trust to a vain delusion.« ••
Yet the Ideal in this picture of the early church la one thatshould not lightly be obscured. The church In its true characterrepresents a fellowship of love and service with life on a planefar above that of worldly ideals and motives.
The hope of the world Is that. In a society dominated largely byself, interest, there are so many, like these early Christians, wholive for liigher things. They are In the world, but not of theworld. They are subject to the conditions of so­ ciety In whichthey live, but they recognize a higher loyalty to a Master who camenot to seek bis own, but to live for others aind for the buildingup of the Kingdom of God.
The church,! making Its growth and progress in a world so differ­ent from itself, is often colored and marred by its environment.Yet to the eye of faith there is hope m the number of thosewho'strive with sincerity and earnestness'to live ac­ cording tothe teachings of Jesus and who seek through the fellow­ ship of thechurch to leaven the world with righteousness, love andtruth.
What real hope Is there for the world apart from that?
International Snnday-Schol Lesson-^namely; just aa .the variousmem- Text, May 12: “So we, being j ijcrg of me body make one, justos every one members one of anoth­ er.” Rom. 12:5. That was aprofound and aearch-
Inig perception revealed when Paul said; "So we, being many, areone body In CJhrlat, and every one mem­ bers one of another.” He sovalued It that he repeated It. No higher
the Lord la the soul Consider heaven, all there do the
will of the Lord and think Hia tnith. Then the will of heaven isthe Lord's will and the thoughts are tlic Lord's thoughts. Now goone step further and get the mighty Hash of light
. . . - . Illuminated Paul and that he Illustration of the harmonyin the ; attempts to convey to us. If the ideal society can begiven. The I ^^d thoughts of heaven are the physical body Iscomposed of many i t,ord’s will .md theughu, then organs, eachserving ah and all serv­ ing each In so perfect order that all makeone body. Reflect upon this.
The hand never rebelt against the foot, nor the foot against thehand. So of all the organs and members of the body. (Consider howthe fin­ gers make one hand. Conflict be­ tween the members of thebody Is unknown, impossible. Herein is a perfect example of whatsociety and the whole world rhould be like.
But go deeper Into this unfathom­ able illustration. In the samehar­ mony that members of the body serve one another, they servethe soul, the mind. The body never goes contrary to the mind It isthe obe­ dient servant of the man himself. Soul and body are one.Here Is the truth that Paul tried to make clear.
heaven 1s to tbe Lord as our bodies are to our minds; or In otherform, the loving and think­ ing In heaven is the Lord's loving andthinkiflg givtn to the angels. It is easy to conceive of thissacred re­ lation of heaven to the Lord: wi are also to realizethat.* such Is the re­ lation of all true Christians to the Lord;for we, being many, are one body in Christ. The kingdom can make ofall nationo one body of which the Lord is the soul. Then theecstatic blessings of the life eternal will rejoice the world withharmony and peace. Jesus fervently prayed that His glory might begiven us that we might be one. His measure­ less love, and italone, can make the world one in Him, on: body of which He is thelife and soul.
