Tho main address of the evening WASHINGTON, April 24—(AP)— j A charge by Chairman Shouse of | the Democratic national executive j committee that the Republicans in- j Jected the religious issue into the ( last campaign was hurled back at the Democrats today by Chairman Fess of the Republican national committee. “Clearly and unquestionably Mr. Shouse did inject the religious issue,” in his recent San Francisco speech, the Ohioan said in a statement from Republican headquar- ! ters. At the same time he said the Republican national committee circulated an anti-Raskob article by Frank Kent in the 1930 congressional campaign but added it did not refer to the religion of Chairman Raskob of the Democratic national committee and would have been distributed whether Raskob was a Methodist, a Baptist or a member of any other denomination. He said Shouse’s speech had been repudiated by several California Democratic leaders. The latest development in the Shouse-Fess controversy came after Shouse had attacked Fess’ past speeches and dealings with newspapermen and denied having said in San Francisco the Republicans bought and distributed 10,000,000 copies of a magazine containing an anti-Raskob article by Robert Cruise McManus. Fess started the controversy by referring to a San Francisco newspaper article quoting Shouse to this St. Louis Man Who Escaped Prison 3 Years Ago to Get Full Pardon Investigation Reavels That He Has Led Exemplary Life Since Conviction as Holdup Man. ness and for many years, according to investigators, had been a law-abiding citizen. Application for a pardon for Preston was made to the governor by Maurice Well, St. Louis philanthropist and by several St. Louis newspapers which became interested in the case. Miss Louise Dulle Elected President of Sorority Miss Louise Dulle was elected president of the Alpha Delta Theta sorority Thursday evening when the sorority was entertained at the home of Miss Lucille Dulle on Bolivar Street. Miss Meta Johann a ber was elected as secretary-treasurer. The rest of the evening was spent in playing bridge at two tables. Score favors were won by Miss Catherine Roer and Miss Margaret Vetter. At the conclusion of the games refreshments were served by the hostess. Evelyn Lewis, 18, was held by Michigan state police, following the death of Adam Bellinger, Leelanau county farm youth, although she and the boy’s parents testified at the coroner’s inquest j at Traverse City that he commit- j ted suicide. No gun was found. effect. He added it was a “deliberate lie.” Shouse retorted he had been misquoted and had in fact referred to the Kent article. In his statement today, Fess characterized the rejoinder as “half confession and half denial.” He said it was immaterial what article Shouse referred to, and added: “Here is the vice of Mr. Shouse’s action—an attempt to imply that the Republican national committee circulated a pamphlet containing an attack on Mr. Raskob because of his religion.” “The Republican national committee,” he continued, “did circulate portions of an article by Mr. Kent when that Democratic newspaperman exposed in Scribner’s Magazine last fall the Raskob-Shouse-Michelson campaign to •smear’ the President of the United States.” A TRUE VERDICT CLIENT: I don’t like these pictures.
