OVER INCH OF RAINFALL
In the notice of the W. M. U.
quarterly meeting to be held October
3rd the hour of meeting should have
read 10:30 a. m. instead of 3:00 p. m.
Lunch will be served and the fam-
ilies of the members are cordially in-
vited to be their guests at the church
at the noon hour.
Lampasas received 1.14 inches of
rainfall Sunday afternoon 'and night,
according to the gauge at Stokes
Bros. Bank. The rain seems to have
been a rather general one. Reports
have been received here that it rain-
ed all the way from Lampasas to
Austin and to Brady. A traveling
man reported that it rained in Brown-
wood but hadn’t rained any in Gold-
ihwaite. Marble Falls didn’t receive
any rain. Most of The territory
around Lampasas seems to have got-
ten a fairly good rain. The rain was
followed by a cool norther that
brought the temperature down ifo 70
degrees Monday morning.
The Lampasas Yellow Jackets met
Cook’s University team at 3:15 p. m.
Sunday at Longhorn field, Austin,
and defeated them by the score of 6
to 2. A fairly large crowd was in at-
tendance at the game.
The Cook boys were all primed to
beat the Lampasas team and seemed
to be very confident that they would.
However, the game hadn’t progress-
ed very far until they began loosing
that'confidence. They just couldn’t
match the excellent team work dis-
played by the Yellow Jackets. Every
man was working for the team and
not for the individual.
The first part of the game was
rather slow due to the fact that a
heavy shower fell on the grounds
about 45 minutes prior to the game.
The sun c^me out soon after the rain
but the field was rather sticky dur-
ing the first two chukkers.
The outstanding and most thrilling
play . of the game came in the last
chukker, when Doc Weir with two
well directed shots took the ball al-
most the whole length of the field to
place it directly in front of the goal
posts, a'nd little Charley Gillen was
right there to knock it through for
W. R. Patterson played the No. 1
position for the Yellow Jackets, W.
C. Gillen played No. 2 and made
three scores, Doc. Weir played No.
3 and scored once, Othel Smith was
No. 4 and scroed once, and Charley
James Gillen substituted in the third
and sixth chukker for Patterson ami
made one score.
That makes two wins and one loss
for Lampasas against the Univers-
ity team, and they still have another
game scheduled at Austin to be play-

WASHINGTON, Oct, 1.—The first
action by the- NRA against manu-
facturers accused of “skyrocketing”
prices was announced today by Hugh
S. Johnsdn, the recovery administra-
tor, as he plunged anew into the
quest for an agreement that would
send striking Pennsylvania coal min-
ers back to work.
At the same time, Johnson dis-
closed that October 9 had been set
for the beginning of a nation-wide
buying campaign to support employ-
ers who have increased wages and
employment under the Blue Eagle.
Making known his intention to in-
vestigate price rises, the adminis-
trator said summonses are being pre-
pared requiring certain manufactur-
ers of overalls and other wearing ap-
parel to answer, in public hearings,
charges that they have boosted their
prices from 100 to 200 per cent, with
the explanation that the increased
cost-s are due to the cotton textile
Deputy Administrator Arthur D.

URSCHEL GETS DEATH
THREAT FROM KELLY
i Mrs. L. B. Henderson and daugh-
ter, Miss Claudia, are home from
i Houston where they spent the past
four weeks in the home of Mrs. Hen-
derson’s daughter, Mrs. Paul Earnest.
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 1.—A
threat that Charles F. Urschel, mil-
lionaire oil man, “hasn’t got long to
live,” was made in the closely-guard-
ed Oklahoma county jail here by
George (Machine Gun) Kelly, iden-
tified by Urschel as one of the two
men who kidnaped him for $200,000
ransom, officers said today.
“I woultn’t sell Urschel any in-
surance,” Elman Jester, deputy
United States marshal, said Kelly
told him and one of the guards. “He
hasn’t long to live.”
Jester said the threat was made
when he asked Kelly about a note
threatening the Urschel family with
death. The note, bearing Kelly’s
fingerprints, was1 received by Ursch-
el during the federal court trial here
of 10 persons charged with kidnap-
ing conspiracy. Urschel was the
principal witness for the government.
“I meant everything that was
written in it,” Jester said Kelly told
Urschel and his family have been
guarded constantly since- he was re-
leased following payment of the ran-
som. After receiving the note the
oil man defied the underworld and
announced he would assist the gov-
ernment in every way possible in
stamping out kidnaping.
JACKSON, Miss., Oct. 2.—Offer-
ing their bodies for experiment into
the mystery of encephalitis or sleep-
ing sickness, 10 white Mississippi
convicts between the ages of 21 and
40 years are being used by state and
federal authorities to determine
whether the disease, which has caus-
ed many deaths in St. Louis is com-
municated by mosquito bites.-
These convicts are a group care-
ully selected from 50 who volun-
teered their services to the experi-
ments at the Parchman state peni-
tentiary farm. The reward for the
10 men is a pardon from Governor
Announcement that the experi-
ments were under way was made by
Dr. W. P. McDavis, penitentiary sur-
geon. The convicts already have
been exposed to mosquitoes believed*
to have been infected by the virtus
taken from the bodies of victims of
encephalitis in St. Louis.

Miss Desmond, unidentified for a

Two weeks ago, she recalled, she

woman died, and at her funeral tube
roses were banked about the casket.

Two machine gun barrels were
trained on him, another on the
crowd of several hundred behind wire
fences at the field.
Then his trimly clad wife, smil-
ing, jumped to the runway, sur-
rounded by the half dozen federal
men who made the three and a half
hour flight from Memphis, where the
Kellys’ freedom ended in a police
trap last Tuesday morning.
Both are under indictment for the
kidnaping of the oil millionaire for
which seven persons were convicted
in federal court here yesterday, and
both, Prosecutor Hyde said today, in-
dicate their intention of standing
trial beginning October 9 on the
government’s conspiracy indictment.
Standing beside his big sedan, the
unsmiling Urschel, who spent nine
days in the hands of kidnapers last
July, watched Kelly alight, then
turned to Hyde and said:
“That’s the man.”
Inside the car, Mrs. Urschel de-
“That face will haunt me as long
as I live.”
She saw two machine-gunners,
identified as Kelly and Bates, snatch
her husband from a quiet bridge
game on the sunporch of their town
house here the night of July 22, and
directed the negotations that, re-

there was no untoward incident up-
on the Kellys’ arrival.
Rushed behind screaming sirens to
the jail and pushed inside the steel
gates under the gaze of more ma-
chine guns, Mrs. Kelly told Prose-
cutor Hyde she was “not guilty” and
that she wanted to face a jury.
“I want to see a lawyer first,” was
the way Kelly was quoted' by Hyde,
who said all indications were that
the accused kidnaper would not plead
guilty to the federal charge, al-
though at Memphis federal agents
said last week he acknowledged com-
plicity in the Orschel case.

highway just north of Marlin today,
with a bullet wound near her heart,

Marlin youth from whom they said
L.hey obtained a statement admitting

From companions with whom the
Baugh girl and the suspected youth
had been riding before midnight last
night, officers learned that the coup-
'e had been together when the victim
.vas last seen alive before the shoot-
Passing motorists found the girl on
the highway early today and brought
her to a hospital.
Officers quoted the youth as say-
‘ng in the statement that he did not
“intend to kill the girl but that she
wanted him to marry her and he
fired to scare her.”
According to the suspected slay-
er’s statement, he and Dorothy Baugh
had been out riding with another
couple until midnight last night.
Then they took the other couple
home and drove north of town, park-
ing near a cemetery for about an
hour and a half.
