Hawaiian Volcano
Eruption Follows
Heavy Earthquake
Honolulu, T. H., Dec. 2.—Fisher-
men fled their homes at the foot of
Mauna Loa, 14,000-foot volcanic cra-
ter, Saturday night, as the giant vol-
cano burst into activity after seven
years of silence.
An earthquake, which shook the en-
tire Island of Hawaii, southeast of
here, preceded the volcanic activity.
Clouds of smoke and vapor arose
from the Mauna Loa crater soon after
the earth disturbance.
Residents of the fishing villages
and coffee plantations along the Kona
coast abandoned their homes after
reports said large streams of lava
were flowing down the sides of Mauna
Loa and already had reached a point
fourteen miles from the villages.
Mauna Loa’s last eruption occurred
in 1926, when lava wiped out many
villages and caused considerable pro-
perty damage.

U. S. Is Ordered
Toronto, Canada, Dec. 2.—The ap-

return of Martin J. Insull to face
trial in connection with the collapse
of the Insull utilities system was
granted Saturday by Justice A. C.

The legal battle for his extradition
which began Oct. 6, 1932, when he
was arrested at Barrie, Ontario, will
go into its final phase next Friday,
when Justice H. H. Davis hears a
motion for his release under a writ
of habeas corpus.
Immediately after Justice King-
stone announced his finding that the
charges named were extraditable. In-
sull’s counsel, J. C. McRucr and I. F.
Hellmuth, applied for a writ of ha-
beas corpus in order to reopen pro-
ceedings hy way of appeal tn review

C. B. Gatchell has returned from
Austin, where he addressed the State
Teachers’ Association regarding the
local trades and industry class of the
High School. Mr. Gatchell gave a re-
port to the class Monday morning,
in which he compared the work of
this organization with those of other
schools. Mr. Gatchell said the class
here is better organized and is doing
better work than in the other schools
with which he came in contact.
A large amount of new supplies
for the science class was received and
installed at the high school Monday
