Ballooning Hopes of Baseball Fans Likely to Be Punctured
Bill to Pass Senate. But
GETTING READY FOR THE INAUGURATION
Amendments May der It Ineffective
HARRISBURG, Fob. 13— INS) — Legalized, state-wide Sunday baseball in Pennsylvania during the coming summer appears out of the question.
Ballooning hopes of sports fans that the next few months would bring major league teams to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and minor teams to other cities of the state for their Sabbath debut seem destined to be punctured in the Senate.
The Schwartz blue law modifier will be passed, according to all surveys, but the amendments proposed for insertion by the Senate would render it ineffective until 1934
That today became the very definite prospect in the realm of Sunday sports legislation, and. with the decision of Republican organization leaders to furnish conditional support for the dry law repeal, constituted the most significant week-end political developments. The dry repeal bill is on second reading in the House tonight and it may become Senate property before the end of the week. An indefinite delay of the measure in the upper branch was forecast.
The primary repealer continued in its state of coma. Unemployment relief legislation, if anything, gathered more clouds and there was no indication they would be dispelled s(v>n, except possibly through the awaited appearance of Governor Gifford Pin-chot.
A hearing today was to bring further developments to give state officials $2500 to attend the Roosevelt inauguration, while Republican leaders were credited with preparing legislation to make a general cut in the salaries of all state employes.
Nominal leaders of the Republican state organization are agreed that the Schwartz Sunday sports bill is really not a local option bill at all. Even its friends assert it would not get a

WASHINGTON. Feb. 13 (UPI — Bernard M. Baruch, capitalist and adviser to President-elect Roosevelt, today outlined to a Senate committee a program for taxation and other emergency projects which he deemed necessary to avoid economic disaster.
Baruch appeared before the Senate Finance Committee which is holding a clinic of ’ best minds” on domestic and world problems. The scene was like a movie set with Kleig lights. Baruch’s words were recorded by the talkies for reproduction throughout the United States.
In staccato, clipped sentences. Baruch read his prescription for world ills:
•'Balance budgets. Stop spending money we havent got. Sacrifice for frugality and revenue. Cut governmental spending—cut it as rations are cut in a seige.
Degrees Recorded in This Area This A. M.
Warmer weather today promised to free thus section of the country from the grip of cold which cost a weekend toll of five lives, injuries to more than a score of persons, and a paralysis of traffic in many sections that* held transportation service crippled until late last night. Hundreds of autos were “frozen up”.
Two of the deaths were those of boy sledders in the suburban areas Gates Derrickson, 13. Darby, was killed when he coasted under the wheels of an automobile at Sharon Hill, and Paul Caulfiled, 13, Lansdale, was killed when his sled was struck by a Reading railroad express train near his home.

Baruch urged international economic agreement on silver but did not Immediately explain the type of agreement desired.
He opposed all forms of Inflation, insisted that a balanced budget and sound money were the avenues to salvation for the United States. He opposed cancellation of war debts but condemned the Versailles treaty in bitter language indicating hts belief that it should be revised.
For the United States, he recommended farm relief in two directions —scaling down of farm debts and curtailed production. He would have the government rent from farmers the land taken out of production to reduce commodity surpluses.
Beer should be legalized and taxed,
Baruch continued, and the 18th Amendment should immediately be repealed "not alone for relief of its abuses but for the purpose of obtaining taxation which can be substituted for more onerous levies.”
Baruch's farm plan was as follows: j Authorize a farm mortgage corporation to issue 3 per cent, tax j exempt 30-year bonds with interest j unconditionally guaranteed by the government. The bonds would be exchanged for "existing mortgages or for title to forclose farms but not j to exceed 60 per cent of the par value ; of the previous indebtedness.

IJ. S. Supreme Court Rules Against the Dorrance Estate
WASHINGTON, Fob. 13 (INS) - The Supreme Court, today denied a petition for rehearing in the appeal of executors of tin* estate of (he late John T. Dorrance, wealthy soup maker, for review of a Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision holding the estate liable to the Pennsylvania inheritance tax. The .state assessed a tax of $17,-437.655.
The executors contended that Dorrance's residence was New Jersey and therefore the property was subject to estate tax laws of that state.
The high court refused a review in December on the ground the federal question had not been properly presented to the Pennsylvania court.
Following this order, attorneys for the estate sought reopening in the Pennsylvania courts on the contention the federal constitutional guarantees were involved, but lost.

In Delaware county, a new indoor pastime imported from the Orient has been uncovered It Is fish fights. Walter M Middleton, of Media, game warden of Delaware county, says he knows no law against fish fighting and there is a possibility that the exhibitions may be public before long.
Thus far the fights have been between the three-inch betta splendens. more popularly known as sardines, but the promoters are said to be considering the possibilities of developing the more vicious cichlasoma mgro-fra&ciatum of Guatemala as a middle-weight class Tile betta splendens, of course, are flyweights.
The fish fights came to light when breeders of fish wondered at increasing demand for betta splendens, Dr. Robert O Van Deusen, superintendent of Philadelphia's aquarium in I - ".noant Park says the'bet!a .• deadens Is the most ferocious fish of its size in the world. They are rather “choosy” and prefer their own school of fighting, it appears, but the Guate-ma’a battlers will take on any fish of their size and weight.

Emerging from the conference, the j father carried with him the ransom j note thrust into Mrs. Boettcher’s hands by the two kidnapers as they ; abducted her husband, a friend of I Col. Charles A. Lindbergh.
I “It s right here in my pocket,” said ! the elder Boettcher. “No one but the highest police officials know what is i in it..
I “No contact has been made with I Hie kidnapers. There is absolutely I nothing that can be said at this time,

A squad of detectives was re as - I signed to track down Hie lobbers of J the Denver Pie Company, on Jan- j nary 28. and two robberies at the I Puritan Pie Company, February 4 and 6, because a .sketchy description of one of the kidnapers tallied with one j of the robbers.

One man ran up to the Boettcher * machine and ordered the young millionaire to throw up his hands.
Boettcher complied The kidnaper noticed an automobile approaching along the street at the side of the Boettcher mansion, and ordered his (victim to drop hts hands until the I machine passed.
Then he gave Mrs. Boettcher an envelope containing a typewritten I ransom note. He forced the mlllion-1 abr Into the small sedan, hacked out to the street and drove away.
Mrs. Boettcher telephoned her fathrr-Jn-Iaw, who lives two blocks away. The elder Boettcher hurried I to his son’s homo and summoned police.
All tho maids at the home had the night off Tiler arrived home soon after the kidnaping. Their arrival gave rise to false rejx>rts that the kidnapers had returned.
