Accompanied to Docks Accompanied by the British consul, Mr. Scotchbroolc, who with his wife was host to the Lindberghs during their stay here, the couple motored from the consulate to the docks. There the American colony joined admiring Brazilians in a noisy farewell. Sirens drowned out the last well wishes as both the colonel and Mrs. Lindbergh .shook hands with the Scotch-brooks and Mario Camara, the government interventor or official representative. Boarding the launch which had been at their disposition since they alighted on the Potengy river concluding their Atlantic hop here, the Lindberghs were taken out to their plane, while police held back the crowds lining the river's edge. It was an uneventful take off ?Golonel Lindbergh inspected the plane, tried the motor and they wore away easily, circling once before they headec^ north. The probable route of the flying American couple lies along the Brazilian states of Ceara Alaranhao and Para, across the MOB MUTILATES SUSPECT'S BODY N AmCK CASE Victim Shot to Death "By Posse, Later Burned by Texas Citizens WOMAN FOUND DEAD (Contlniued On Page 20) SEVEN FATALLY BURNEDjNHOME Fire Destroys House in Which Victims Were Sleeping Today By The Anodated Prui SAULT  STE.

Officers and incensed citizens had been searching for the Negro, since Mrs. Mellie Williams Brock-man, 30, wife of a farmer, was found dead last Saturday, Last, night a posse trailed the Negro to his hiding place in the belfry of a Negro church at Voth, a town between Kountze and Beaumont, where he was shot and wounded when officers said he resisted arrest The wounded Negro, unconscious, was taken to a Beaumont hospital, but when officers recMved information a mob was forming at Kountze, they took the Negro away in an automobile, trying to protect him. Never Regained Consciousness Without regaining consciousness or being able to make any Statement, the Negro died as the car bearing him sped toward Vidor. The body was' taken to Silsbee, another small town in the vicinity, by Sheriff Miles Jordan. Learning of these developments, the mob trailed the sheriff to SiJsbee, took the body from him, tied it behind an automobile with chains, and dragged ifc for 35 minutes through the Negro section of Kountze. Members of the frenzied mob cut out the Negro's heart and other organs before casting it to the flames.. There was talk of raiding the Hardin county jail here and inflicting similar treatment upon two other Negroes under arrest, suspected of having aided Gregory to evade officers shortly after Mrs. Brockman was killed. But the mob dispersed after burning the body. In the face of mob threats, 20 deputies, rangers and armed citizens stood guard in the county jail until tlie danger had passed. Mrs. Brockman started for Kountze alone in a light truck and was found shot to death beside the truck which had been, set afire Flames had seared her body. She had planned to exchange a pair of baby shoes she had purchased.

These old big boys can all get up before their little audience and yejl for stabilization, amortization, gold standard, or platinum finish. Then the President can come to the microphone with that convincing manner of his, and the rest of 'em just might as well wash up their little speeches and go home.

The end of the first round found three members of the defending championship team in front after winning 20 of 28 matches played among a field of 21 teams. Tho leading quartet is P.

Bmrlch, holding a. 2% point lead, there was an atmosphere of tense expectancy over a reported threat to the dominance in Cincinnati of the American bridge league, sponsor of the tournament. Considering Withdrawal There were reports that Cincinnati clubs were considering withdrawing from the league, and other reports that the United States Bridge association, hetided by Ely Culbertson, would ascend to prominence here. Certain concessions from the league to the Cincinnati clubs were said to be necessary to prevent a severance of relations. One, It Is understood, involves protests against an official. On top of this. It was learned that a prominent player had been reprimanded by the league's executive committee for allaged un-gentlemanly conduct. Maurice Maschke, former Cleve- -John By The Auoclnted Preie WASHINGTON, Dec. 8. Larkln, chairman of the rules committee of tho company plan committee representing employees of the Welrton, We.st Virginia, steel mills. In a statement last night, challenged the National Labor board's right to Interfere with the approachinfi election of workers' representatives for collective bargaining. Ho said his committee failed to reach an agreement with the board at a conference today. The election is scheduled for December 11. Chairman Robert Wagner of the board rebuked Larkln for his attitude toward the board. The statement said the committee "challenges the authority of the board to Interfere with their performance of duties for which they were duly elected by secret ballot by 90 per cent of the 10,: 000 employees of the company In June of this year." The statement added tho committee "would welcome supervision by the labor board." "We think tho employees can form their own organizations and we question the right of tho board id' abrogate our rules and there-foi;e will conduct our election as scheduled and prescribed by our byrlawH," the statement added.

"The o.nly reason there Isn't a strike today In Welrton is because we have faith in this board," he said. J. Madden, member of the company plan committee said that unless the company plan of nomination were chosen "there would be intimidation and it would take troops in Welrton to keep the peace." Wagner appealed to tho company plan committee and tho union loaders to forget past differences and join with the board In assuring a fair election. He said he believed conditions at the Welrton election would be as peaceful during the election as during tho recent captive mine elections in Pennsylvania. KBCO.MMK.\DS TAX JNCKKASB By The AiMcUted Preee WASHINGTO.V, Dec. 8.-The President's special Inter-depari-raental alcohol committee has recommended that congress impose a tax. of 12.60 a gallon on distilled spirits as compared with the present $1.10 tax.

It ir** equally evident President RobsflV(*lt Wished earnestly to retain tho head of tho agrlouUura! adjust ment administration In some other high federal position. Secretary Wallace, under whom Peek has been working, ottered a new post to his aide; at least one other position elsewhere, not Immediately specified, was said to have boon proposed. At any rate, officials held' unlikely a compromise between Peek a]id liberals in tho department. Tension which hud existed for months and tinally broke out openly, showing the secretary often accepted the advice of others rather than that of Peek, was believed to have made untenable Peek's present position. I'eok Favored Conipronilvo In many of those cases, Peek favored compromise with business whereas the liberals urged compulsion. The suggestion was made that Peek might follow to the NRA the codes, other than those Involving processing, which were transferred from the AAA to Hugh S. .Johnson's agency. But Peek said ho had heard nolhing of that "rumor" and that he did not wish to discuss his resignation. It was known though, thai one or Peek's basic objections to his AAA Job wag that his decisions there were subject to approval or veto by Secretary Wallace; that a transfer to the NRA would simply move the veto power to Johnson; that Peek still thouKht tlio AAA should be Independent, operating directly under the President. All these tilings have been put before Mr. Roosevelt, who talked with Peek, Secretary Wallace and Dr. R, (J. Tugwell, assistant secretary of agriculture and one of tho leading departmental llhorals. When, and If, Peek IcJives the AAA, It was forecast that his Job would be taken by Chester 0.

The Ohio Pharmaceutical ossocia-tion, appealing for llconsing of drug stores, said 1248 pharmacies In the state now hold federal permits to dispense liquor for medical purposes. Fifteen Day Restriction Tho sub-committee also proposed that no permit.for sale of liquor, be issued, whether for package sales Or glass sales In hotels, res', taurants, clubs and the Hko, until the application for the nermit had been on file at least fifteen days. This apparently was aimed at pro-venting the hustle and bustlo that was prevalent when the state first started to issue permits for the sale of 3.2 beer.
