Senator John J. McClure, organization Republican leader of Delaware county, was reputed to be ready to declare his candidacy as soon as the atmosphere clears at Harrisburg. Asked about the report. Senator McClure told International News Service: •'I'm not a candidate for governor I'm too busy thinking about legislation here to be a candidate for anything now.” Political observers were puzzled by the report, anyhow. It would be news if McClure has won the backing of other organization leaders, including William S. Varc, It would be bigger news, perhaps if McClure has broken with some of them. There is no evidence that Gen Edward Martin, Republican state committee chairman, has yielded an open track to the Delaware senator. Martin never said he was a candidate for Governor, of course; and he never said he wasn’t. VICTIM OF SLA VINO WAS KNOW \ HF,HK Mrs Nellie Ken.sek. of South River. N.

I he new break added to the misers and loss of tlir hundreds of families in the flooded area. State and federal officials promise early relief, following investigation. To what extent William S. Vare has been consulted thus far about, the matter is speculative. Perhaps the surprising news of all would be the avowal of any Republican candidate to go to the Wire next spring without a promise of support from Vare, except, of course, a Pinchot-supported aspirant. There is no outright split between the Philadelphia organization and the rest of the State Republican Organization. but legislative maneuvering of the last three months certainly has not cemented their relations. Mention of Va re’s name with the gubernatorial race brings forward the possible candidacy of Judge Arthur H. James, Luzerne county, a member of the Superior Court and a former ; lieutenant-governor.

HAVANA QUIET AS POLICE ARE ACTIVE HAVA N A, April 15    <INS) — Squads of police continued to patrol the streets of Havana and its .suburbs today to prevent a recurrence of the terroristic bombings which led to a loss of 5 lives. Federal authorities insisted no new bombings occurred during the last 24 hours and expressed conviction the reign of terror, allegedly sponsored by the ABC. .student revolutionary organization, had run its course.

BLIZZARD TOLL IO With damage to property mounting and discomforts of persons affected becoming more acute, flood waters of Darby Creek spread over added areas in Tinicum township .yesterday, as a new break in the dikes bordering the creeks occurred. Yesterday's break makes a total of six in the dikes in the area bounded by the Delaware river. Darby creek ; and the county line, plus two large I gaps left open to provide transportation over the tracks of the Reading Railroad and the P R. T. lines run-: ning to this city. Damage estimated | at several hundred thousand dollars ; has already been done. Included in the area is the nfl« range of the Pennsylvania National Guard, which has been flooded. Conditions there are to be investigated ! by a commission of officers nam d by Adjutant General David J Davis which includes Colonel Franklin P. Haller, Jr.. Colonel Daniel A Nolan and Captain Thomas J. Kernaghan. In an effort to show that the floods of the Delaware river and Tinicum creek are almost as bad ar I those which have caused serious damage along the Ohio and Mississippi livers. Adjutant General Davis yesterday ordered two planes of the 103rd Observation Squadron. Pennsylvania National Guard, to fly over the area where the dikes had broken and fake aerial photographs of the ; vicinity. EASTER BLOOMS FOR HOSPITAL PATIENTS An appearance of Easter season has pervaded every part of the J. Lewis Crozer Hospital, where not only in the individual patient's rooms, but in the wards of the hospital as well, gayly colored Easter plants and cut flowers are in evidence, giving the patients a cheering and beautiful sight and pervading the institution with the delicate scents of the varicolored blooms. In the wards the flowers which have been sent to the patients and which have been appropriately arranged by hospital staff members, are to be seen on all the spotless white window sills, in pleasing contrast to the unbroken glistening walls of th. Tenor. The flowers in the pots and baskets in the building are not the only ones in evidence uu the grounds, as some of the beds containing Easter bulbs have come into attractive bloom beneath the windows of the main building adjacent to the hospital where the executive offices, the home for incurables and the maternity department are housed. AMNESIA VICTIM GUILTY OE HOAX Detected Writing Appeal After Transfer to ( omit} Home A woman, who "put It over" on police and Delaware County Hospital authorities for three weeks, is now a patient in the hospital at the County I Home. Lima, and it is highly probable that sooner or later she max be transferred to Broadmeadows Farm for i having perpetrated a hoax. The woman, known as Tessie Webb I was admitted to the county hospital 1 on March 25, after she wandered into the rectory of St. Charles' Borromeo Church. Oakview, and pretended to ! be an amnesia victim. Police of Clifton Heights removed the woman to j the hospital. Melvin L, Sluicy, superintendent of the hospital, and virtually every mom-1 ber of the staff of nurses and doctors, [there took turns in trying to bring I her around to normal, but without ' success. She couldn't tell them where J she had lived, what her name was, or anything else. After 20 days of it. Superintendent Sluicy decided they could do nothing I for her, and that the hospital could! no longer afford to supply her with I i bcd and board. So he called up] Superintendent Boyd. of the farm at Lima, and arr to be transferred there. The "patient,” submitted to the transfer, but did not And the poor farm as much to her liking as she had the hospital. The second day I she was there, yesterday, she was discovered writing a letter to a friend in New York, appealing for aid to lift her out of the terrible circumstances into which she had fallen. Poor farm authorities said she signed the letter Mrs. D. Reach. At the hospital she was known as Tessie Webb. Mr. Sutley, thoroughly angry at the hoax which had been perpetrated on the hospital, said yesterday that he will ask police to make an investigation of the case. and. if there arr legal grounds, plans to press criminal charges. SOUTHAMPTON. England, April la 'UP' Prime Minister) Ramsay MacDonald, confident that his forthcoming conversations with President Roosevelt would result in good for the world, sailed for Amor ca today on the liner Berengaria. Just before the boat lifted her gangplank, MacDonald dispatched this cable to Mr Roosevelt I am leaving in wonderful weather which I take as a good omen.” His cable was in response to one from Roosevelt which was handed him when he embarked. Roosevelt messaged: “We are greatly looking forward to your being with us and wish you a good voyage.” In his last interview with the English press.
