INSULL’S LAWYER ARGUES
MAGNATE WAS BENEFACTOR
ATHENS, Greece, Oot. 22.—A coun-
sel for Samuel Insull Sr., dethroned
Chicago utilities czar,, in a hearing
Sunday described his client as one of
the greatest promoters of human wel-
fare and expressed confidence that
the Greek court would return a ver-
dict favorable to Insull’s fight against
The session occupied most of the
day and the case was adjourned until
4 p. m. Monday.
Insull ax*rived in court at 8:45 a. m.,
more than an hour before the trial
was to open. He looked refreshed
after eight hours sleep. He passed
ttyfe time pending the opening of
court talking to friends and eating
candies and chestnuts.
P. R. Hallis, defense attorney who
spoke Saturday, continued his argu-
ment, saying the utilities magnate
took all the steps possible to save his
company and contended everyone

ality still trusted by the losers whose
interests he looked after for forty
The court engaged in lively discus-
sions regarding bank loans and the
persons who received them. There
were also discussions between the
president of the court and the de-
fense concerning the validity of the
American law with the prosecution

transfer of capital is concealing
The colossal dollar figures involved
and mentioned from time to time in
the hearing seemed to puzzle the
judges with their drachma equivalent
(the drachma being currently worth
about 81-100 of lc).

SUNDAY SERVICES AT THE
The Presbyterian people of Lam-
pasas enjoyed another high day in
their services on yesterday.
Without any “high pressure meth-
ods” it was a record day for church
school attendance for this year, if you
were not there you certainly missed
seeing a very happy superintendent,
!4>e sure and come and see him next
Sunday. This was followed by a very
worshipful hour at 11 o’clock. The
music from the Prelude to the Re-
cessional was well chosen and effec-
The pastor, Rev. D. H. Kirkpatrick,
brought a touchingly impressive mes-
sage on the subject: “The Christian
Home, its obligations and its value
to Youth,” from the text, “If any—
have children, or grandchildren let
them learn piety at home and to re-
quite their parents, for this is good
and acceptable before God.” He said
in part, the Christian home is the
foundation of the nation and of Chris-
tian civilization. It was the first in-
stitution established by God follow-
ing man’s creation and is destined
to outlast all other institutions on
earth. He counseled the men to take
the Christian leadership in their
homes and to stand shoulder to shoul-
der with their wives in maintaining
the “Greatest Christian institution for
training their children on earth.” No
other organization can surpass it,
they can only be helpers to it. He
pointed out the result of such conse-
crated efforts, showing how God will
honor such a home; first, the putting
aside of youthful lust; second, the
building up of righteousness, faith,
love and peace with them that call
on the name of the Lord out of a
pure heart; third, home piety is a
kind of guarantee for public piety,
which is the long arm of the Chris-

worshipful thought and well rendered
and was carried out mostly by them,

KANSAS CITY, Oct. 20.—A nation-
wide search for a young Mexican
prisoner who boldly escaped from fed-
eral officers here Oct. 6 was ended
today with the receipt of a letter
addressed to “Senor” Judge Albert
L. Reeves in which the youth prom-
ised to return to serve his sentence
—after he had completed his legal
education in 1937.
Jose Rodriguez, who was sentenced
by Judge Reeves to serve five years
on a charge of violating the Dyer
Act, mailed the letter, which was
written in Spanish, at Juarez, Mexico.
“I feel very much that I had to
escape, but as I told you in the letter
I gave you, I have to complete my
education before I enter prison or no
one will give me a license to prac-
tice my profession,” the letter said.
“When I finish in 1936-37 1 shall
return to serve the sentence. In the
meantime I am going to learn your
language more fully so I shall be
able to speak to you. Without more
until 1937, sadly, Joe Rodriguez.”.
The youth was sentenced at Spring-
field, Mo., on a charge of transport-
ing a stolen vehicle from East St.
Louis, 111., to the former city.
W. L. Vandeventer, U. S. district
attorney, said he will seek Rodrig-
CHICAGO, Oct. 20. — Carefully
guarded by federal agents, Geraldine
Arnold, 13, went before the grand
jury today to tell who harbored
George (Machine Gun) Kelly, in Chi-
cago as the killer-kidnaper fled after
abducting Charles F. Urschel at
Frankly fearful of the child’s saf-
ety, federal officials hoped her testi-
mony would aid in the prosecution of
Joseph Bergl, alleged “armorer” for
gangsters; Abe Gaplan, beer tavern
owner, and his brother, Charles Cap-
lan, reputed liqjuor dealer.
The government investigators said
I they had learned Kelly and his wife
j spent a week in Chicago, living in an
| apartment rented by underworld
| friends and visiting cafes nightly,
while they were being hunted as kid-
Geraldine rode about the country
with the Kellys for days, serving as
a "blind” for witnesses who might
suspect the couple. She finally was
released by them to return home, and
promptly'- directed authorities to their
hideaway in Memphis, Tenn.
It was indicated today the girl
would be taken to Memphis after tes
tifying here to give evidence against
the persons who concealed the Kellys
in the southern city.

LONDON, Oct. 20.—Drug-smug-
gling and drug-taking are on the in-
crease in England.
Extra custom officials, especially-
trained to ferret out smugglers, have
been posted at all ports in a new
drive against continental drug rings
which have found in the British mar-
ket a growing demand for cocaine,
heroin, morphia and other dangerous
The French and German police also
are cooperating with British authori
ties in their war against dope, and
frequent consultations take place be-
tween Scotland Yard officials and con-
tinental to map out plans to trap the
One of the difficulties experienced
by British custom officers is that in-
nocent persons are often used by the
smugglers to get their contraband in-
to.. England and to distribution cen-
ters in London and the midlands.
In a recent case, officers examin-
ed a schoolgirl’s book bag, being car-
ried by an elderly woman. It was
found to contain a large quantity of
morphine. The woman said she had
been asked to take the bag to a girl
whom she had met at a continental
hotel. Her stox-y proved to be true,
but she had been made the tool of
Despite the extraordinary precau-
tion taken by physicians to prevent
dangerous drugs from being used il-
legally, the drug habit continues to
spread, as is shown by the increasing
number of persons who appeal to
doctors to be cured.
“Drug-taking is undoubtedly in-
creasing in this counti'y,” according
to E. W. Gough, leading British chem-
ical manufacturer and expei’t on drugs
and poisons. “It is a common experi-
ence for a retail chemist to be asked
to supply drugs on a faked or falsified
doctor’s prescription, but these pre-
cautions are lessened by the drug
Love is a halltxcination that makes
an otherwise sane man believe he can

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES
“Probation after Death” was the
subject of the lesson-sermon which
was read in all Churches of Christ,
Scientist, on Sunday, October 22.
Among the citations which com-
prised the lesson-sermon was the fol-
lowing from the Bible: f,0 House of
Jacob, Come Ye, and Let Us Walk
in the Light of the Lord . , . For the
Day of the Lord of Hosts Shall be
Upon Everyone That is Proud and
Lofty, and Upon Everyone that ia
Lifted Up; and He shall be Brought
Low . . . and the Loftiness of Man
shall be Bowed Down, and the haugh-
tiness of Men shall be Made Low:
and the Lox'd shall be Exalted in that
day” (Isaiah 2:5, 12, 17).
The lesson-sermon also included
the following passage from the
Christian Science textbook, “Science
and Health with Key7 to the Scrip-
tures”: Job said: ‘I have heard of
Thee by the hearing of the ear: but
now my eye seeth Thee.” Mortals
will echo Job’s thought, when the
supposed pain and pleasure of mat-
ter cease to predominate. They will
drop the false estimate of life and
happiness, of joy and sori’ow, and at-
tain the bliss of loving unselfishly,
working patiently, and conquering
all that is unlike God (page 262).
