FARMER THINKS COUSIN
IS BANDIT, OPENS FIRE
AND KILLS HIM
GREEN BAY, Wis., Oct. 31.—Fear-
ing reprisal from robbers whom he
recently frustrated, Henry Gomand,
a farmer, Sunday night mistook a
group of relatives for the gunmen
and opened fire, killing a cousin and
seriously wounding two others.
John Baye, 34, was killed, his wife
was shot probably fatally and theii
year-old son, Dewane, while not struck
by the bullets, was seriously injured
when he fell to the ground.
Gomand was lodged in jail for
questioning, the authorities said.
The farmer recently frustrated a
robbery by seizing a chair and driv-
ing a group of holdup men from a
grocery store in near-by Champion.
He had since been subjected to josh-
ing by his neighbors and had feared
a return visit by the robbers.
His relatives drove to the Gomand
home for a call. Gomand shouted,
“Who’s there.” Baye replied, “Got
any more chairs?”
Gomand was convinced the visitors
were gunmen, he said later. Order-
ing his mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Go-
mand, and his brother, Ben, to the
second floor, he barred the doors.
With a shotgun he took up a posi-
tion at an upstairs window and open-
ed fire on the approaching party. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Baye dropped.
Gomand stopped shooting when he
recognized the cries of Mrs. Philo-
mena Baye, mother of John, who was
following with another son, Bernard,
and her grandson, John Jr.
GIRL LOST IN WOODS
12 HOURS BACK HOME
FORT SUMNER, N. M., Oct. 31.—
After being lost for twelve hours and
wandering through mesquite, cactus
and sand which scratched her body
and blistered her feet, Aylene Wyley,
15-year-old Fort Sumner high school
girl, was safe Monday at her home
The girl wandered away from the
Renfro ranch, sixteen miles north of
here, Sunday afternoon and became
lost. After walking for miles she
made her way to the Noswell-Santa
Rosa highway and a motorist picked
her up and took her to Santa Rosa
Fifty men aided in a search for
No raw tobaccos in Luckies
—that’s why they’re so mild
V*7TE buy the finest, the very finest
W tobaccos in all the world—
but that does not explain why
folks everywhere regard Lucky
Strike as the mildest cigarette.
The fact is, we never overlook the
truth that "Nature in the Raw
is Seldom Mild”—so these fine
tobaccos, after proper aging and
mellowing, are then given the
benefit of that Lucky Strike puri-
fying process, described by the
words—"It’s toasted”. That’s
why folks in every city, town and
hamlet say that Luckies are such
That package of mild Luckies
AUSTIN HEARERS GIVE BUL-
LINGTON GOOD SEND-OFF
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 31.—Orville
Bullington, republican choice for gov-
ernor of Texas, got a good send-off
Monday night here in the state capi-
tal and home city of Mrs. Miriam A.
Ferguson, democratic nominee for
Tom E. Hogg of San Antonio, son
of the lamented James S. Hogg, one
of the state’s most revered gover-
nors, introduced the Grand Old Par-
ty candidate to an enthusiastic aud-
ience in Wooldridge Park, only a few
blocks from the executive mansion

cupy for a two-year period beginning
COTTON SEED RULE
MEXICO CITY, Oct. 31.—Depart-
ment of Agriculture officials today
studied protests alleging discrimina-
tion in favor of United States cotton
They were based on the depart-
ment’s order that all cotton seed from
the Mexico region, embracing the
growing section of the Coahuila Lake
region, must be pulverized before it
is offered for sale.
Substantiating its order, the depart-
ment asserted fumigation or pulver-
ization is necessary to prevent spread
of the pink bollwofm, and fumigation
facilities are inadequate.
Fumigation machinery on the
American side of the Rio Grande
was lauded by the department, which
added that the restrictions would be
modified I when Similar provision}. were
made for the Mexican product.
Relieved By Taking Cardui
“I was weak and run-down and
suffered quite a bit with pains in
my side,” writes Mrs. Nick Bar-
ranco, of Beaumont, Texas. “I was
nervous. I did not rest well at
night, and my appetite was poor.
“My mother had used Cardui
with beneficial result, so I decided
to take it. I surely am glad I did,
for it stopped the pain in my side
and built up my general health.
I took seven bottles in all.”
Cardui is sold at all drug stores,
Sterling Is Present.
Gov. R. S. Sterling, defeated for
a second term, nomination by the first
woman governor Texas ever has had,
together with Mrs. Jane Y. McCallum
and a committee of other democrats,

Hogg recalled that as a child “I
have played among you.” He said
the issue now was not political but
Bullington came here from West
Texas after a strenuous day of cam-
paigning in Brownwood, Goldthwaite,
Lampasas and Georgetown. All along
his route from the cow country to
Central Texas he was given encour-
The republican, a convert of only
a few years from the democratic po-
litical faith, charged that James E.
Ferguson, husband of the democratic
nominee, impeached and removed
from the office of governor in 1917;
was trying to intimidate the voters
into sending him back to the chief
executiveship. He was his wife’s
principal helper in 1924-26 when she
served a single term in the guber-
Charge Against Fergusonism.
“Jim Ferguson has served notice
on West Texas that unless that area
votes right in this campaign they
might suffer dire penalties on Texas
Technological College,” Bullington
said. “That reminds me of 1917
when he tried to visit a blight upon
the University of Texas. I had the
pleasure that time, as an alumnus
of Texas, in joining with Will Hogg,
son of the former illustrious gover-
nor, in the campaign that finally got
rid of him.”
Bullington appealed to Texans to
vote as persons free to make a choice
without reference to party lines. He
said he was the candidate of the peo-
He pointed out that his father and
mother, grandparents and great-
grandparents before him, always were
democrats and that he, always a
high tariff democrat, had been forced
in the republican ranks some years
ago because he wanted to be inde-
pendent of party lines in furtherance-
Bullington said that a party who
obligated to. its members to put up
as candidates persons who were hon-
est and competent and, failing in
that, those who pledged themselves
to support any group nominee were
released from any obligation.
WEST TEXAS SHERIFF
REFUSES TO SHOOT
HIS PRISONER FOR $2
BOY IN CLEVELAND
Can’t Intimidate People.
“Jim Ferguson can not intimidate
the people of Texas,” Bullingtorf said.
“George III could not do it, so it is
reasonable to believe that Jim Feigu-
;son, impeached and removed from the
governor’s office, can not succeed
with such tactics.”
“They said, in a whispering cam-
paign, that I would turn the st&te
over j/to th,e republican^. That! is
preposterous, because any appoint-
ment I make must be ratified by a
majority vote of the Texas senate. I
would not do it if I could, because,
should I be elected I .would know that
the democrats were due credit. The
republicans are doing the best they
can, but there simply is not enough
“I think it would be a pretty good
thing to have a republican governor
and a democratic legislature. One
could check the other and keep things
straight. New York has gotten along
pretty well under that system and
rock-ribbed republican Maine has de-
cided to try it.”
Bullington said if he were elected
he would put a stop to peddling par-
dons and paroles.
ODESSA, Oct. 31.—What price
One hundred and fifty and some
odd years ago, Patrick Henry fixed
the equivalent, or alternative—as one
chooses to construe his restricted se-
Time, perhaps, has modified the
uncompromising demand of the revo-
lutionary forefather. At any rate,
out in Ector County, where the-wide
open spaces have preserved a measure
of the frontier spirit of initiative,
there is an apparent willingness to
consider another value.
A prisoner, unable to raise a $1,-.
000 bond, imposed after an examin-
ing trial, voiced firm prejudice
against further residence in the
local jail. Throwing his broad-brim-
med hat on the floor of the court-
house hallway, he stated with em-
phasis that he would not go back
to the jail.
“You’ll have to shoot me first! I’d
rather be shot than go back to your
“Well, if you’ve got $5 . . . ” the
sheriff suggested, hesitatingly, and
at the same time fingering his ivory
handled gun reflectively.
“But I’ve only got two. Maybe
w.e . . . ” interrupted the prisoner,
who was a stranger to West Texas
and its diplomatic ways.
“Then,” continued the sheriff. “I
can’t afford to shoot you. Five dol-
lars is my regular price for shoot-
ing folks and if I let the price down,
now that the depression is on, I’d be
worked to death in, a week.
The momentary distraction at the
failure of negotiations was enough
for the officer to collar the objector
and guide him back to his cell with
out further protest.

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Oct. 31.—Nine
days ago a blue-eyed sturdy little
fellow of 8 said “g-bye” to his “mom”
and dropped completely from sight.
Monday, Ebert Hollerson’s disap-
pearance has become a major mystery
and his search has grown to Nation-
Admittedly without tangible evi-
dence of his fate, Cleveland detec-
tives are holding two men for ques-
On Saturday afternoon, October 22,
the lad skipped away to play, first
taking precaution to say:
“G’-bye, mom, Whiat time shall I
staid back to get home by dark?”
Afraid of the Dark,
Mrs. George Holleron—“mom”—
feels sure tow-headed Ebert did not
run away—“he was just a little
afraid of the dark.”
“He’s alive, I know he’s alive, and
he’ll come back to me,” she insists.
Her eyes are shadowed from loss of
sleep and her face shows the strain
of waiting for the boy who was the
baby of the household.
Many rumors have come to detec-
tives. Particular credence is given
one from a 13-year-old playmate of
Ebert’s, who related that “a man in
a gray sedan” recently attempted to
entice Ebert into his automobile.
Follow Up Rumor.
Cleveland police have centered their
activities on learning the identity of
this man, working on the theory that
Ebert may have been made the vic-
tim of a degenerate, or possibly still
is alive and a captive.
They recalled the adduction and
murder of 6-year-old Marian McLean
in Cincinnati last December.
Charles Bischoff, 45, was arrested
and confined to the Lima State Hos-
pital for the criminal insane as her
Fear has been expressed, likewise
that the boy’s disappearance may
rival that of 4-year-old Melvin Horst.
Three years ago Melvin vanished
from his home at Orrville, Ohio,
while at play and no word has been
heard of him since.
WILLEBRANDT FIRM IN
STAND FOR PROHI LAWS
SAN DIEGO, Cal., Oct. 30.—Mabel
Walker Willebrandt, former assistant
United States attorney general, Sat-
urday night told a San Diego county
republican- rally that “in spite of the
insinuations of my self-appointed bi-
ographer, Mr, Alfred E. gipjtb, I
have not turned wet, or even damp,”
Mrs. Willebrandt resigned in 1929 \,
as assistant attorney general in
charge of prohibition enforcement
and later became counsel for a Cali-
fornia grape producers corporation;
Reference to the change was made by
the former New York governor and
1928 democratic standard bearer in
his Newark speech.
CATHOLIC SERVICES IN
MEXICO ARE SUSPENDED

GAUDALAJARA, Mex„ Oct, 31,—
In obedience to instructions from
Archbishop Orozco Y Jimenez, who is
in exile in Los Angeles, there were
no services in Catholic churches here
Sunday and church buildings were
turned over to government officials.
Manuel Alvarado, in charge of the
cathedral, announced that, because of
the desire of church officials not to
violate the new state religious law,
all services had been temporarily

The man who is always boasting of
his willingness to shed his last drop
of blood for his country is never in
much of a hurry to shed the first one.
