As Killer Hangs
Worst Murderer in British
Criminal History Pays
Penalty of Crimes.
1 LON-DON. — Neville George
Clevely Heath, one of the worst sex
murderers in British ^criminal his-
tory, was hanged iq Pentonville
prison, while a wealthy English-
woman in the street outside tried
to defend him against the “sadistic
law” which condemned him to
About 200 people, mostly resi-
dents of the tough Brewery road dis-
trict, were waiting for Heath’s death
certificate to be posted on the pris-
on gates when Mrs. Violet Vander-
elst, a wealthy foe of capital pun-
ishment, stepped from her automo-
bile and began distributing leaflets
headlined “Fresh Evidence.”
Claim Brain Injury.
The leaflets alleged that Heath, a
handsome ex-flier, had suffered a
brain injury due to instrument birth,
and said that his first victim, Mar- j all the volley
Konuncuts From Tit’ KorraJ.
Now that the mid-term examina-
tions' u^e over, everyone is turning to
the lighter side of life. Here’s an
xumple of the way the hoys ate
celebrating the end of exam week:
When a boy lets his mind become
On an object best known as a girl;
When be strives for that 'male fas-
Aud start's to using liisf mother's ’Tru-
Wfjeu be trots off to church every

When he sturts reading 'secrets’ and

When he starts imitating Ids elders,
Starts soaring around like a dove
Then, people, you may as well know
That young man is falling in love.”
A young man who Illustrates the
preceding poem could easily be little

On the same night that little Kluge

This year, the Future Homemakers

will both get to visit the Fat Stock

This is ti great opportunity for these

will be a valuable experience to then).
Two Big Games
Big Gomes Friday Night.
At 7:15 o’clock Friday night there
a “vibration bad

(which) no doubt
“Evil entities can enter and take
possession of anyone like Heath,’’
the pamphlet stated.
The condemned man also was ac-
cused of the mutilation and slaying
of Doreen Marshall, pretty veteran
of the women’s royal navy service,
but was not tried for that murder.
The famous Tussaud’s wax works
has found that the effigy of Heath,
recently added to its chamber of
horrors, has attracted record
crowds, consisting mostly of women.
Mrs. Vanderelst, symbolically at-
tired in black, continued to dis-
tribute leaflets until police bundled
her into her car and ordered her to
leave. Three others, two men and
a woman, were arrested during the
night for attempting to post anti-cap-
ital - punishment placards on the
She Is Fined $8.
Mrs. Vanderelst appeared in
Clerkenwell police court to face two
charges of obstruction of free pas-
sage on the highway. As she entered
the court, she protested that she
would give her life to fight the
“sadistic law” which decrees death
She 'pleaded not guilty to both
charges. One count was dismissed,
but site was ordered to pay an $8
fine for the other violation.
A police inspector testified that
when he warned Mrs. Vanderelst
that she was obstructing passage
outside the jail, she replied:
“You swine! I remember you!
Why did they bang that young man?

Pirates Steal Costly Armored
Cable From Floor of Ocean
SINGAPORE, STRAITS SETTLE,
MENTS.—The embarrassed British
Navy and Cable and Wireless, Ltd.,
hunted for some four miles of valu-
able armored cable’ pirated practi-
cally from under their noses.
The cable was on the ocean floor
but the pirates worked almost with-
in sight of a company station.
They hacksawed through about
half a mile of cable only 704 yards
from the Hong Kong station. Then,
while Chief Engineer John Cockburn
directed the splicing in the first
break, the pirates hauled in another
1.7-mile length two miles away.
In three raids during five nights,
the pirates got away with 4.2 miles
of cable, Cockburn said.
"I don’t know which was cheeki-
est—the fact that they made the
first cut Only 704 yards from our
station or that they were busily saw-
ing away while I was testing what
T' thought was an anchor break,’’
Cockburn has a hunch they plan
to melt the copper and sell the steel
wire on the black market.
Two Adrift at Sea Without
Food Rescued by Freighter
NEW YORK.—Two residents of
the Canary islands, who had been
without food for a week and without
water for four days while adrift in
a 30-foot sailboat, were rescued by
the crew of a freighter 470 miles
southeast of Cape Cod.
„ The coast guard search and res-
cue center here said the men were
picked up by the James Smith and
were being taken to a Canadian port.
The men were Juan Henriquez de
Peralta, 36, and Thomas Matros
Castellano, 19, both of Las Palmas,
A message from the Smith said
the two men sailed August 9 from
the Canary islands for Mexico.
Storms blew them off course and
their food and water ran out.
Unkempt Bridegroom Sues
Laundry Firm for $2,500
SHRE1VEPORT, LA.—Because he
didn’t get his suit back from the
cleaners in time and was forced to
get married in a “soiled and un-
kempt” ensemble, Thomas J. Mitch-
ell seeks $2,500 damages from
Shreveport Laundries, Inc.
Mitchell asks an additional $27.50
damages for the value of the suit,
which never was returned.

Down in Lolita there was never
a better bunch of elieeioia than sup-
ported the team, even when things
looked really tough.
Friday night was a big night for
everyone, hut J. Tatum and K. Camp-
bell captured the limelight, especially
when Bus Driver Kluge could be per-
suaded to llick on the dome lights for
a few seconds.
But Tatum and Campbell did not
huve entirely all the limelight, for if
one looked hard aud long enough, lie
would have seen Freddy Jean Shorrer
and Donald Cox running them a close

entertained with a forthcoming pub-
lication of hers, entitled “ilow to
Unite a Knot In Ten Easy Ix'ssous”
with the subtopic, “Don’t Give Up;
the Ship is Not Lost." The best
points in her hook were illustrated
on L. Nickels, whose tenuis shoo
strings were in bad shape.
While the volley ball bunch was in
Lolita, Berry , Campbell discovered
liat his big brother had left the car
the school. Never the one to puss
such a chance as “opportunity
only knocks once,” Perry very quickly
picked up Peggy Thomasson and a few
others, aud really had a rousing
time. The only thing that marred
his night’s udveiiture was the dent

buffers enjoy him.

Warren Wayne Flournoy is again
gladdening the hearts of pretty girls.
Last Saturday night it; was little
miss Patty Lou Waters who claimed
his exclusive attention.
This same young man, Mr. Flour-
noy, is hanging out his shingle—all

kind of lessons on how to he beau-

yon are lucky, you might, get to see
the great genius himself.
L. A. Parks’ new pick-up is really
nice. He can scat all of six people
in the front seat, if he watches who
the six are, mostly what size they
are. Then, too, when the pick-up
stalls and won’t start he has plenty
of help to push, and both he and
Mury Ann Tisdale can ride.

Volley Bail Girls Loss.
There is no danger thut the volley
hall girls will ever get big-headed,
for they know that they’ll have to
have lots more practice and keep in
form if they ever expect to turn
their luck. At the four-team tourna-
ment last Friday night, January 24,
they lost to both Woodsbcro und La
Basket Ball Boys IkM, Too.
The sports Held for Edna was a dis-
mal failure lust week, climaxed by the
fact thut the basketball boys lost to
Becville 80-10. This was the third
district game of the seuson, and they
huve vvou one and lost two.
Cowgirls Sport New Uniforms.
The new uniform of the Cowgirl
volley ball players are royal blue
with white letters, numbers, and

game, when they played in slacks
and blue jeuus.
