Local rains this week, too light and scattered to aid crops materially, furnished' the most optimistic note In the predictions. The almost unprecedented dry spell brought another hazard-forest fires to Michigan, Montana, and Idaho, where volunteers and forest rangers fought large timber .blazes. It was feared the situation would be aggravated by lack ot rain. Electrical storms completed the havoc wrought by nature when considerable damage was done in the arfa surrounding-Chicago.-Many buildings were partially wrecked anU power and communication lines were put out of commission. The hottest place in the United States yestrday was Ellsworth, Kansas, in the center of the wheat and corn belt, where the temperature reached 111. Omaha, Neb., reported 110 degrees.

This Is believed to be more than was shipped over any other dock in the Great Lakes region during the month.

AKRON, Aug. 4-William Evans, 26, Barberton machine shop foreman, shot 19-year-old Dolly Kozlowski to death along dusty Pig Lane, near Wadsworth, last Friday morning, then abandoned her two-year-old baby on a Wadsworth door step, because he did not want her to return to "A life of shame" in Mansfield. That was the substance of a confession Detective Chief Ed McCon-nell of Akron, and his aides wrung today from Evans after an intermittent five hour examination at police headquarters here following the LINGLE AND ZUTA MURDERS LINKED? CHICAGO, Aug. 4 - The murders of Alfred J. Lingle, Chicago Tribune reporter, and Jack Zuta, north side gang chieftain, definitely were linked together today by police and other officials Investigating both. "Find the man who killed Lingle In a pedestrian subway eight weeks ago today and you'll find one of the seven men who killed Zuta in a hotel resort at Delafield, Wis., last Friday," was the word given out by Ch'ef Investigator Pat Roche of the state's attorney's office. Roche went to Delafield and Waukesha, WisT^ yesterday to aid Sheriff Phillip Herbrand in his investigation of the- Zuta slaying. Their discoveries led, they said, to a belief Zuta may have "been put on the spot" by a woman who "double crossed" him and told his rival gangsters the ideal time to assassinate him. They also attached importance to the finding near DelafielS of a golf bag which .contained five shotgun shells of the type used in the Zuta killing. It was recalled that golf bags played an important part in several recent gangland murders or attempted murders in Chicago and that in each case it.was gangsters of the Moran-Aiello-Zuta north side forces who used them to cary guns and ammunition. These apparently trivial discoveries, the investigators reasoned, were in reality so important they pointed to a solution of the whole Lingle-Zuta tangle.
