ZANGARA FACES ELECTRIC CH AIR: PLEADS GUILTY Assassin of Mayor Ormak Little Perturbed in Court Proceedings Are Brief. With Slayer Aiding: the State’s ( ase COURTROOM, MIAMI. Ila , March 9— (INS) —Smiling broadly and apparently indifferent to his fate. Giuseppe Zaftgara, Italian anarchist who fatally wounded Major Anton J, Ormak, of Chicago, in an attempt on the life of President Roosevelt, pleaded guilty to one of two counts at his arraignment on a charge of first degree murder today. Arraigned on two counts charging first degree murder, Zangara pleaded Guilty to killing Mayor Anton J. Cermak in attempting to shoot President Franklin D. Roosevelt. * His counsel asked that the second count, charging premeditation in the killing of Cermak, be withdrawn, The penalty under the guilty plea is death in the electric chair or life imprisonment at the discretion of the trial judge. Defense Attorney Twyman, in entering the plea. said Zangara would (ell the Whole truth about tire affair if the court wished. The Italian, however, Twyman said. did not know Mayor Cermak and had no intention of harming him. As State's Attorney N, Vernon Hawthorne read the indictment, the former Hackensack. N. J., bricklayer shouted: “I want to kill president! I hate all capitalists!'' He gesticulated wildly, his eyes blazing, and the heavy guard whi* h surrounded the Italian closed in on him ominously, ordering him to be silent. Then his attorney, Twyman, entered the plea of guilty to the first count. State’s Attorney Hawthorne announced agreement to tvithdrawal of the second count against the assassin. and Judge Thompson ruled that no plea be entered on the count. Both State and defense attorneys announced they were ready for the hearing to proceed immediately This procedure is required tinder Florida law before evidence can be lizard in passing sentence in a capital case. Witnesses, principally doctors and police officers, were then (ailed Tom Armour, of Miami, was the1 first witness. He testified he w'as among the spectators at Bayfront Park that welcomed Roosevent February 15. Armour pointed t<> Zangara when State's At Forney Hawthorn*"1 asked if tire man who fired the shots in the park that night was in the courtroom. He testified he stood beside Zangara and grabbed a‘ his arm "hen his atter'ion was attracted by the first shot Zangara smiled as Armour told of holding the assassin’s nrm as the shots were fired. Mrs. W. F. Cross, wife of a Miami physician, credited by Zangara with twisting his arm upward and deflecting bullets from the President, was then called but did not respond. She Avas not in the city.

The executive said, that during the past two days he has received a number of large orders for his product, evidencing the belief on the part of consumers, that there will be an increase in demand, which will entail a consequent pra e rise, when financial conditions have been more normalized by the full resumption of banking functions. It was also said that the ordefs were placed at a figure slightly above the market value at in? present time, which is another j indication of an anticipated substan- j I.a1 rise in prices.

Purposes to Put Banks Back    o Sot id Basis WASHINGTON, March 9 The Prohibit mn Bureau announced it had directed its forces throughout the country to sp-wia zr on eradication of the sources of liquor supply, leaving the handling of "speakeasies" to the States. This action was taken by Colonel Amos AV. W. Woodcock, director of the bureau, as the 1934 appropriation for the Department of Justice paused by Congress prevents agents of the bureau from bus ing liquor for the evidence heretofore relied on in I he prosecution Of speakeasy owners and employ es. Congress provided thai no gov* ruin mt money shall be used ior wiretapping lo procure evidence against violators of the Volstead act, to purchase intoxicating liquors or to pay informers, "While these provisions do not become effective until Juh I, it seemed dr Arable to make the bureau’s operations conform immediately so the wishes of Congress, not only for tin principle involved but for the practical reason that the case made now will likely bp tried after Juh I," Colonel Woodcock said Therefore, on March 3, Circular Letter No. 179 was issued, putting these restrict ions into immediate effect " Referring to dropping the <■: n-paign against retail liquor sellers. Colonel Woodcock said: I "It is probably a good thing in the long run, because it will tend to force attention upon the responsibility of local authorities upon speakeasies and similar viol.Lorn, and make our work more effective by fixing a more definite objective.” "The great bulk of complaints which reach this office and the field offices are in regard to the speakeasies."

That the government had taken definite .-steps against gold raiders was revealed last night by George W Norris Governor of Hie Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank, who cequi ted of all member banks the names and addresses of those who, since February I. have withdrawn and have not rr-dcpo-lied gold. This development climaxed a day in which Philadelphia banks showed the greatest amount of activity since Governor Pinch*)! declared the morn tor him. While many leading bankers today still insisted normal bank operations could not be resumed until some form of federal guarantee of bank deposits were made bv the government, it became inevitable that scrip in the Philadelphia area would lie employed tomorrow unless definite orders to the contra iv is forthcoming from secretary of the treasury Woodin. "The Philadelphia Reserve Batik, acting under the authority of the Federal Reserve Board, last night sent out a li ner to all member banks in this district requesting the name* and addresses of all persons who had withdrawn gold since February I, and who did not return it before March 13, "The letter to the Philadelphia Reserve Bank, by the Reserve Board, reads as follows ‘It is requested that you prepare and forward to the board as soon as Continued on Dy* Sixteen SERGEANT I GII ES QUITS STATE POLICE Sergeant Joseph J.

In addition, It is IIIN belief that this legislation will not only lift inline diatelv all unwarranted doubts and suspicions in regard to banks which are IOO per cent. bound but will also mark Hie beginning of a new relationship between the banks and Unpeople of tins country.
