Took Operator’s Place at N ote on Plan Likely in No-Set to “Talk” to Rum rem ber; Await Word
The jury in Philadelphia trying Ii; defendant, several from this county. in the reputed $5,000,000 rum ring rmashed in October, 1931, by federal agents, today had a vivid story of how the combine directed its mot ilia of boats at sea and in foreum waters bv means of a powerful outlaw radio station.
George W. E. Shields, the government's radio technician, derided intercepted radio messages he said were f?nt to the “mother' rum ship 30 miles off the New jersey roast, and to Canada. St. Pierre, Miquelon and the Bahamas.
George Orville Bishop, operator of the illicit station, first located at Up-prr Darby and later moved to Philadelphia, was described as a fugitive.
After the station was located by Shields through the use of a portable detector set! it was seized by federal agents. Shields then sat in for the operator and communicated with various boats at sea and other outlying posts of the ring.
Once, when tm found himself using lh'’ wrong rode. he told the jury hr signaled the operator at sea that • bad atmospheric conditions” were interfering with his sending and that he would “rail again”. In the meantime, he searched and found the other code in the room.
The ring was smashed by a series Of raids on October 14, 1931. which was the -first dav that Shields had an opportunity to operate the station, which he described in his testimony.
Shields first told how he located th" illegal station at 114 North State road. Upper Darby, with a portable detector set. He explained that by determining the greatest strength of radio signals at various angles he was able to extend lines that gave him the approximate location of the Hiding station.
'Then,'* he continued, “I drove slowly past the house under suspicion

Last, night, police advised the Swarthmore resident they did not have the records containing the name of the owner of license <?33D8 and advised Knoblauch to write to Harrisburg for it, The owner of the car could ha vt1 been g.ven the information immediately find police telephoned Harrisburg. which is the proper procedure in the casr of a “hit and run" accident,
Knoblauch appeared at police station this morning and Chief Vance ordered that the information be immediately obtained from Harrisburg. Records of the highway department disclosed that the license tag was issued to Furlong, for a car of the coupe type Knoblauch found a dented hub cap for a ear of the make for which th*' license had been issued, near his damaged automobile and turned this over to police as evidence.

HORSES WITHDRAWN FROM RACES TODAY
(Ut I 'nit «•«! Press!
HARRISBURG, Pa,, Feb. IS UP
Pennsylvania officials today were considering the form of legislation needed for the summoning of a convention to consider the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment should the measure be approved by Congress.
In Ute past when constitutional amendments were submitted to the States for ratification they were laid before the Legislature, but under the terms of the repeal-resubmission measure passed by the U. S. Senate a State convention must approve the change in the basic law
Pennsylvania has no provision for such a convention and it will be necessary for the Genera! Assembly to enact appropriate legislation for thai purpose
In all probability, tho legislative reference bureau will draft a bill and submit it to Attorney General William A. Schnader for approval before ii is introduced in the General Assembly, officials said.
Such a bill would explain the reason for the convention, designate the time and place where it would assemble and provide the method of selecting delegates.
While State officials have no precedent to guide them, it was generally believed that the delegates would be chosen on the same basis as is used in selecting members of the electoral college.
The election for delegates to a convention would most likely be held in connection wilh the next November ( lection to save the cost of a special elect ion.
It would mark the first time since prohibition became a national law that a clear cut referendum, devoid of political elements, would be held on the question throughout the Slate.
Despite the fact that the Genets! Assembly of Pennsylvania could not be officially informed of the passage of the repeal art until late Tuesday or Wednesday, it is understood that leaders of the House and Senate plan to introduce a bill providing for a con-\cntlon during the session next week.
If the bill passes the U. S. House of Representatives under a suspension of rules next Monday, as Speaker John Gainer has proposed, Ope or two days would elapse before official notification of its passage would be conveyed to Richard J. Beamish snc-retavy of the Commonwealth.
The General Assembly of Pennsylvania would not learn officially of the proposed repeal measure until it was informed by Beamish.
Passage of the national repeal measure probably would speed approval of the Conner-Sowers bill re- J pealing the Snyder-Armstrong aet State enforcement law leaders indicated.

Blankenburg testified that ho ha been pleading for months with the loafers to remain away from the station, but his pleas and threats have been in vain.
“A number of these men are not residents of this state,” the detective declared, “Thee come herr and are given shelter and food at the mission houses and during the da' panhandle patrons of the railroad and spend the money for booze. When they return to , the mission houses they are refused admission because they are intoxicated, so they sleep in the waiting room, much to ihe disgust and discomfort of patrons of the road.” Johnson, Dick and Parker were discharged with a warning and the remainder were given two dav s rn the local lockup. Each was warned. that if they are arrested on railroad property again they will be sent to the county prison for 90 days,
