Find Boy Who Heard Screams Of Woman GEORGETOWN, Ohio, Mar. 19- A high school boy who heard a woman's screams at the McGehee home at Mount Orab was found today by Ipvesllgators of the mysterious d#ath last Sunday of Mrs. Maynie McGehee, 30. On her deathbed Mrs. McGehee told her brother, James Lanham, of Lebanon, Ohio, that a man struck her and threw her into the creek. Prosecutor John Houston, Sheriff George McCuUom and Detective Robert Kinney, again questioned the husband, Lewis M. McGehee, last night, but he was unnble to offer any clews, they said today. tors by admitting defiantly that she plans to re-wed soon with a "young Chicago lawyer whom I met in Indianapolis shortly after 1 left Walter." Listeners were surprised because it was she who advised her present husband to plead guilty and face execution in the electric chair. Mrs. SchoU was returned to the jail after a close grilling into alleged discrepancies in the story she told police when her husband,was seized in Chicago. She was arrested Friday at the funeral of Vivian, 8, and Donald, 6, victims of their father. After the double burial, SchoU's father, Rev. Charles W. SchoU of Pittsburgh, said "We will leave 'whem buried here until we can take their father's body had home with them." No one wants to see SchoU escape the chair, and least of all himself, he says in the Lake-co. jail at Crown Point. His wife, with a new husband In sight, directed him to plead gulUy and to make no plea for clemency. She told him he deserved death. ' The state of Indiana will recommend electrocution for the man who says he slew, his offspring out of pity for their position in life-motherless and with a former police character who c'ould not reform, for a father. PLANS TO STAR VAREVI Money Will Be Advanced by Sen. Reed To Continue Probe in Pennsylvania Election. By THOMAsTlTSTOKES, (United PreMH Stnff CorreHpondeiit.) WASHINGTON. Mar. 19- Blocked in several directions, the Reed campaign fund committee meets at the capitol today to determine its course . in proceeding with the Pennsylvania recount of the Varc-WHson senatorial contest and to decide whether it will investigate in. Colorado. The committee intends to go ahead in Pennsylvania and Senator Reed, democrat, Missouri, is anxious to investigate charges of large, expenditures in Colorado for the candidacy of Senator Waterman, republican. The committee hopes to force the opposition to the Pennsylvania recount into the courts. It will exert all efforts to enter the Keystone state. Despite the refusal of Senator Keyes, republican. New Hampshire, chairman of the audits and control committee, to approve expenses on the ground that the committee no longer exists, and the indication that republican Scrgeant-at-Arms David Barry of the senate will refuse to go to Pennsylvania for more bfillots on exiKsnses advanced by Senator Reed, democrat, chairman, from his own pocket, the probe may proceed. Members of the committee will send somebody else If Barry declines to go, or will go themselves if necessary. Jerry South, democrat, assigned as Sergeant-at-Arms to the committee, may be sent. (NEA Service, Washington Bureau.) This Is the last picture of Sergt.-Maj. James B. Montague, the first casualty suffered by the American Marines standing by In China to protect the lives and property of United States citizens. From marks on Montague's body, which was found floating In the' Whangpoo river near-Shanghai, it was deduced that he had been murdered. Montague was one of the highest rank ing .non-commissioned officers of the Devil Dogs. His home was In Rich mond, Va. LITTLE ROCK, ArU., Mar. 19 i -Search was commenced today in the ruins of 750 bouses smashed by a cyclone, which swept Carro'J-co. last night for five missinf^* bodies that may bring the total loss of life to thirty. Twenty five bodies have been found. Thousands were left without shelter in a downpour of rain and hail. Heavy damage was sustained In Denver, Arkansas and Green Forest, both towns being almost entirely obliterated. It was the second wind-cone to ravage Arkansas within two days. Eleven persons were killed Thursday by a tornado. Relief expedltlo>rs were rushed with food and medical supplies from here to the stricken area, 200 mll6s northwest.

Some Even Say Ck^ngressmm Drink WASHINGTON, Mar.' 19- Published charges, that a "senator" owned Uquor hi-jacked recently on Washington's outskirts, set the capitol humming today with these queries: "Who was the senator?" and *'Uo members of congress drink'/" The answer to the first question was not forth coming. Usually communicative prohibition authorities were silent. One said It would cost him his job If he revealed the owner's name. But the gossip went that the senator is wealthy, socially prfamlnent and famed for tho good brand of liquor served at the dinners. All of which caused interrogators to pass to the second question: "Do membei'S of congress drink?" A prominent organization official told the United Press he personally knew of thirty-five senators who didn't, but he was non-committal as to the thirsts of the others. ' Senator Bruce, democratic wet of Maryland, stated on the floor recently one of the most ardent drys in congress, made a memorable plea to his colleagues some time ago that all who voted dry should sign the pledge^lnferring that some dry voters were wet drinkers. Singing his "swan song" at the closo of the last session, Upshaw brandished an empty liquor bottle which he said he had found in the house office building. Last year an alleged bootlegger was caught In one of the congressional office bluldings; and Senator Cole Bleaee, picturesque South Carolina democrat, observed in effect that bootleggers were pestiferously active around the vicinity of the legislative halls. There also arose recollections of the famous divorce trial of former Representative Scott, republican, Michigan at Alpena, Mich., two years ago at which testimony was that Washington flowed with liquor and members of congress partook freely of It.

Sandusky will have an opportunity of bel^g represented in tlie annunt compefition in the Atlantic City beauty pageant in September when "Miss America" is selected for 1937 if plunsj now In progress by Cedar Point Officials materialize and they likely will. Announceemni has been made that an all-Ohio contest will be held' at Cedar Point late m July when from aomng entries from various cities in the state will bo selected "Miss Ohio" to represent Ohio at Atlantic City. More than 100 cities wiU be asked to send the winner of a contest to Cedar Point. Each city \yould conduct its own contest on a voting plan, while at Cedar Point, competent judges would name the winner. The plan, it is understood, calls for a trip to Cedar Point for eaeh winner with her chaperon and three days entertainment there with all expenses paid. Girls between the ages of 16 and 25 and who have never been married, are eligible. It Is probable that a campaign will be started in Sandusky to select a girl to represent this city at Cedar Point. Ohio has won' *Mls.s America" honors before, and the Cedar ! Point contest is to be used as a means of picking a girl from Sandusky or some other Ohio city. Hope Thii Will End Her Hard Lack >ic�>i! Ktiliiit :lcit:* Viola Dailey, Victim War Jinx, Being ''Repaired" DE.NYER, Mai^ 19-Climaxing a series of war, hardships. Mrs. Viola Lynch, 31, was preparing to go an operating table here today and undergo 73 hours of continuous work by doctors and nurses without the aid of an anesthetic. The tragic story of Mi-s. Lynch's life dates back ten years ago, when, as Viola Dailey, she went to war with the Rainbow division as an Immigration official. Two wee}cs after her arrival in France she was summoned to bring in a soldier from the bat-f.efleld'. T^e doughboy was her brother-dead of sharpnel wounds. Before she could recover from the shock, a sister, a Red Cross nurse, was carried in from the field, dying from buUet wounds. For 38 months she remained in France. She joined the lost returned with only 18 of tho original party. While riding a supply wagon In a bombardment, she was struck in the face by a shell and for months lay between life and death, her speech, tight and hearing gone. Added to her troubles, she received word that another brother had returned after being taken pri-soner by the Germans and had been horribly mutilated for refusing to divulge* the location of American troops. She returned to the United States In November, 1920, to learn of the death of her broth--er and his vflte. A brother-in-law, who met her at the boat In San Francisco, dropped dead bi a heart attack. A few days later her sister was killed by an automobile and in May,jl931, her mother died. - Physicians in San Francisco extended little hope for recovery, but a noted specialist in 1924 grafted skin on her face, put in new patates, strung a . set of teeth to her jaws, and remodelled her fallen nose. Two days later her speech, sight and hearing were restored. Just when she thought her troubles were over, ehe received word that her brother who had^ been taken prisoner by the Germans, had died. Shortly thereafter, Viola Dailey met Jim Lynch, a war veteran anl they were married in the Philippines. They returned to'the United States and camc to Denvfir. v The operation today will permanently repair her shattered face, Mrs- Lynch has been assured.
