Hadley Files Way From Cell;
Irlves Up After Dig
- gifig in Bricks V
Another attempted break from
tne Manon county jail came to
naught when Burdette Hadley,
forger, filed his war through the
bars of his cell, dug a row of
bricks from the north wall of the
court house, and then abandoned
tne project; The incident is be
lieved to have occurred shortly
after midnight Thursday morning
but did not become known until
later in the day. - r
The reason tor Hadiey's aban
donment of the attempt remained
as much a mystery as did the
source of the tools with which he
almost made his way to liberty.
Up For Parole
. More nnexplainable still was the
fact, that Thursday was Hadiey's
day to come on tor sentence before
Circuit Judge Kelly, and Hadley
wanted a parole. It was considered
probable - that he would get one.
In view of the fact that the charge
against him Involved forgery of a
check for only $19 and restitution
of the money was being made. The
upshot of it was that the parole
was denied and Hadley will spend
the next 12 months in prison, v
' "No charge was placed against
him for his start for freedom." it

Bower, sheriff, "There would have

Famous Flyer and Fiancee
Take Short Flight Day
.1 Fallowing Mishap
Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh
demonstrated with one hang his
confidence in flying even while
his right arm remained in a sling1
as the result of his "mishap" of
yesterday. Miss Anne S. Morrow,
his promised wife,' bravely follow
ed his lead with undiminished
faith in the abilltv of the colonel
and the safely of the work which
has been his life.
Miss Morrow apparently found
tonic in the medicine prescribed
in the training corps of the United
States' army by Which, a .flier is
sent back Into the air to renew, his
confidence as soon as possible
after a crackup. She seemed, a
trifle nervous as she entered the
airplane but. after ' three short
flights over Valbuena field she
was as gaily confident as her com
panion. '
The aviator himself showed no
uneasiness at managing the-plane
with his left hand nor did. he dis
play any awkwardness in handling
the commercial plane to which ne
was a stranger.
Lindbergh made three takeoffs
and landings within half an hour.
The flights were limited to circl
ing over, the field. - f
Details' of the crackup yester
day when the aviator brought his
plane down, knowing that he baa
dropped a wheel on the take oil
from- thehrpicnlc ground m tne
country, showed that he had con
sidered the protection of his fian
cee In every way. Not only did he
exhaust the gasoline supply to re
move the danger of explosion or
fire but he lowered the cabin win
dow so that Anne would not be
cut by flying glass. He warned her
that the- machine .was likely to
turn over; but assured her that the
crash would not be serious.

Soft Spoken Marion County
. Solon Tells Associates
Plain Truths
Repeal of Salmon Wheel Bill
Still Up In Air; Debate
Grows Warm
Representative Settlemier. of
Marlon . county, ordinarily soft
spoken when he speaks at all on
the floor of the house, rared right
backra his haunches and told Ms
associates on the fisheries commit
tee some plain truths Thursday
sight when discussing the bill to
repeal time law putting fish
wheels out of business.
Representative Anderson de
clared that the people voted elim
inating the wheels and the voice
of the people should be obeyed.
Settlemier countered this by
reminding Anderson that the lat
ter had- voted an Income tax when
the people have rejected, one nine
times, the last time only four
months ago; that Anderson had
voted down an increase in com
pensation for legislators, and that
Anderson had voted for a Ueuten
ant governor when the people have
repeatedly voted that down.
Injustice Admitted
By lower River Man
Metsker said elimination Of the
wheels bad been an Injustice and
he i disliked working an injustice
on. anyone, but his people in Co
lumbia county use nets and not
wheels, so they would not like to
see the wheel law repealed. 'How
ever, he would favor reporting
the bill out without reccomenda
tlon it the emergency clause was
deleted. Settlemier, Childs and
Knapp agreed to this proposal if
Metsker would make the motion.
Then Metsker asked permission
to sleep on it over night.'
. Robison began a personal tirade
against F. fJ. Seufert, whose
wheels were topped, when he
was Interrupted by Settlemier,
who told how Seufert had made
the rocks and sand of The Dalles
into the orchards and gave 20,000
cherry trees to the farmers to be
paid for when they had their first
erop, and started the cherry in
dustry of Wasco county.
