This means that he is through with racing at Daytona Beach this Af ar. Immediately after his conference
SOLO, Java. Fob. 23 —(INS)—Still hysterical and unnerved by the tragedy, Mrs, John R. Fell, former Follies girl wife of the noted American sportsman and banker, tonight told the story of her husband's mysterious death, asserting he died a .suicide by plunging a knife through his heart.
His last words. Mrs. Fell told police, were:
“It’s my fault. I did it."
The tragedy occurred in the hotel room occupied by Fell, director of a Paris bank, and his wife since their arrival in Solo on a tour of the Dutch East Indies.
Mrs, Fell, tile former Martha Everton. who was the third wife of the noted polo player was prominent in New York and Philadelphia society.
Her story was broken by sobs and intermittent attacks of hysteria.
"We had a glass of beer together at the bar downstairs and then went to dine in private." she said.
"Tho table was set and my husband sat down to eat. As I recall. I was at the washstand with my back to him. There was no thought of tragedy in my mind.
"Suddenly I turned toward the table. At that moment I saw my husband use from his chair and stagger toward the bed.
"A foot or so from the bed he crumpled up and sank to the floor.
“I rushed to his side, and then saw for (lie first time that a table knife was protruding from his breast.
"I pulled out the knife and threw it across the room. I was horrified and terror-stricken.
"I shouted for help, and another guest of the hotel armed just as he died His last words were: 'Its my fault. I did it.’ "
Police declared their investigation showed that Fell's last words were

HARRISBURG, Feb 23 UNS)— Pennsylvania’s proposed new school (ode was characterized on all sides today as the real orphan of the present Legislative session.
No party, faction, or group of .substantial size is willing to uphold it in its entirety and the individuals that .support it without “ifs" and “ands" are numerically negligible.
That condition has always existed in some degree and applies to many. other hills, but not a single measure introduced so far this vent is considered as significant in the whole scheme of things, economically, so dally. and politically, as the code. The Importance of unemployment relief is not denied, bul thus far the proposals on that subject are too intangible and incomplete to be Judged on the same basis.
As in the ease of every complex codification of laws. the education code covers a wide range of divisions, any one ot which is a major controversial issue l lie proposal to consolidate more than two thousand districts Into five hundred has drawn Mu greatest mass protest, despite the fart that through such merging the Department of Public instruction estimates a saving ut more than $3,000,-000 with increased efficiency.
Thousands of others are protesting a cut in subsidies which would result, while another large body is concentrating on apposition to the

HARRISBURG Pa , Fob. 23 UP) Preliminary summaries of fiscal surveys indicate Pennsylvania will not raise the $158,000 000 Governor Gifford Pmehot proposes to spend in general expenditures, the United Press learned today.
The surveys were conducted by leaders of the state legislature to which the governor submitted his 1933-35 budget.
The difference between the amount of money the surveys indicate presen! methods of raising revenue will produce, and the sum Pmehot asked, Um.Vi wiH t)r Rapped bv "the economy program,'’ it was said,
"We certainly can’t spend more than we take in. and it looks now as though we wont take in as much as the governor has proposed to spend,” one legislator said.
Surveys of state expenditures and Income are being completed for initial presentation to the general assembly next week Two studies of expenditures were conducted. One by the Sterling committee sought data from state departments on their fiscal needs. Tho other by what, is known as the Turner committee sought to find means of effecting economies.
Representatives of the two committers continued their work today in putting the finishing touches on summaries of what their questioning
