Eccentric Attacked At Oklahoma City late Saturday afternoon Woody Hoekadav, an eccentric businessman from Wichita, Kau., broke from the ranks of *pec-tator- lining the route of Preeidcnt Roosevelt’' drive through downtown Oklahoma City. He ran toward the PresidentV automobile. A secret service agent riding on the running board of the presidential automobile paused a moment, then leaped eight feet through the air toward the man. Still in the air the agent struck Hockaday flush in his face and *ent him sprawling on the pavement. Firemen and national guardsmen quickly pinioned the struggling man'* arms, then saved him from a mob of infuriated citizens who would lynched him. Man Was Unarmed Although first reports said that the man was armed with a blackjack, Captain Mickey Ryan ot Oklahoma City detective*, who identified the man a- Hockaday, said that he was not armed. Hockaday’s only explanation of the affair was that he wanted to get close to Mr. Roosevelt to “shine the President’s shoes." “I don’t think that this fellow tried to harm the President." Captain Ryan said. “We searched him and didn’t find anything resembling a weapon." Hockaday, whose escapades frequently have get him in innocent jams, wa- held in jail.

The flier* expected to parallel roughly the 15,500-mile route taken bv the late Wiley Post in his solo record flight around the world in 1933. Hughes, who expected to save refueling time by making only six stops, hoped to complete the trip in five day*—almost three day* lees than Post—at a coct of approximately $300,000.

Barkley in Kentucky’s democratic senatorial primary, exploded in the capital Sat-rooni to the | urdav. to play golf J politicians here were still talking avidly about the President's unprecedented indorsement of Barkley in Kentucky yesterday when Senator M. Mills Logan, democrat, Kentucky, made public a letter from Mr. Roosevelt dated February I. It said the governor had made a “proposition” to the President the day before, and had “seemed surprised when I told him that you and I would he the last people in the world to traffic in judicial appointments in order to snti'fy the ambitions of one office seeker.” Deal Undisclosed Mr. Roosevelt * letter <1 id not say in so many word* what Chandler's “proposition” was. But, coupled with an announcement which Logan had just ironed, it conveyed the idea clearly that the governor had suggested that the junior senator from Kentucky he appointed to a federal judgeship. This would have permitted Chandler to be appointed to succeed him in the ►enate, and would have left Barkley a clcgr field in his race for renomination to Kentucky’s other senate seat. “I want you to know how* fine I think your statement of Monday wa*,’’ the President wrote, referring to Logan’* announcement that he would decline any judicial post offered him. “The governor put you and Alben and me into a most disagreeable situation and wholly without any neees-ity therefor. “I want you to know* that the governor came to see me yesterday, repeated the same proposition, and seemed surprised when I fold him that you and I would he the last people in the world to traffic in judicial appointment* in order to satisfy the ambition* of one office seeker. “You deserve all the credit in the world for the splendid and unanswerable and unselfish position you have taken.” JENKINS MAKES BID FOR MINORITY LEADERSHIP Wallington, July ll.
