Present Regulations on Book
Importations Are Held
Customs Clerks Said Unable
Jo Determine Merits
Of Literature
Associated Press Staff Writer
The senate today went' on rec
ord for less rigid prohibition
against the entry Into the United
States of foreign literature that
might be regarded as of an Im
moral or seditious nature.
By a Tote of 38 to 36 It adopted
an amendment by Senator Crush
ing, republican. New Mexico, strik
ing from the tariff bill the pro
vision in existing law barring the
importation of books held b eus
tims officials to be of an immoral
nr'nre and eliminating part of a
new provision which would hare
closed the doors to entry of litera
ture advocating treason or insur
rection. Anti-Government
Literature Barred
At the suggestion of Senator
Pduzens, republican, Mich'an,
the New Mexico senator modified
lila nrnnoMl tn retain that section
of the new provision prohibiting
entry of literature urging forcible
resistance to any law of the United
States or containing a threat
against the life of an American
citizen. In this form it was adopt
ed. Earlier the senate had rejected
an amendment by Cutting which
would hare permitted entrance of
all literature that might be held
to be immoral or seditious. The
vote was 48 to 33 for the retention
of the section as written In the
Senator Cutting Does
Most of Talking
Senator Cutting held the floor
most of the day for his proposals,
although he had assistance from
others, including Senators La
Follette, republican, . Wisconsin,
Tydings, democrat, Maryland.
Like a scLoolmaster lecturing a
class in the classics and the phil
osophies of such literary geniuses
as Homer, Shakespeare, Dante,
Milton and others, the youthful
looking senator from the south
west pictured a "clerk of the bu
reau of customs" passing on
whether these or works of a politi
natnre transgressed decency or
could befoul the minds of Ameri
cans believing in free speech and
government by the people.
'The youth of tne land, he said,
must be guarded against moral
corruption by their families and
the laws of the states, and not by
an Individual customs Inspector.
It was ridiculous tv bar an occa
sional Immoral book, he argued,
when adolescent children could
read in the daily newspapers of
murders and sordid love scandals.
PORTLAND, Ore., Oct 11.
(AP) Obscure trails which they
hoped might lead to the yet un
identified person who placed in
circulation 314,000 worth of re
called and supposedly burned
bonds of the Interstate Utilities
company, were traced and retraced
by county officials and special
operatives here today.
Meanwhile deputy prosecutors
continued their intensive question
ing of Howard Polly, former chief
engineer of the American Bank
building here, where the 31.000,
000 bond issued was tossed Into a
basement furnace. Polly remained
in the county jail, unable to raise
Eugene yesterday on a technical
5,000 bond. He was arrested at
charge of "having a false Instru
ment of debt in his possession
with intent to utter it as true.
The engineer vigorously denied
any connection with the case. His
attorney requested an Immediate
preliminary hearing but this was
denied at the suggestion of the
district attorney's office. -
Polly admitted that he knew of
the bonds and assisted with their
destruction. He declared, how
ever, that he left the building 20
minutes after they were thrown
Into the furnace.

three state's witnesses today in

statutory charge. The three were

Russo, former usherette, of Pan

Jobelman testified that Pan

Fitts, and "suggested" that the
theatre magnate's own version of
his alleged attack upon Eunice
Pringle be related by Jobelman
to Fitts. Keene testified that his

In Contest
Is Deplored
It may be some time before Sa
lem musicians participate in an.
other Atwater-Kent audition con
test, it was indicated Friday when
the results of the state-wide con
test of last week were announced,
and at the same time certain fac
tors which played a part in shap
ing those results, became known.
Don Raymond of Portland won
the men's contest by a vote of 732
to 675 for Leonard Chad wick, Sa
lem entry. Rose Colombi of
Portland won the women's con
test, by an overwhelming margin.
It was disclosed here that Ray
mond, after winning the local con
test at Portland, was billed to sing
over KGW, the station which'
broadcast the state contest, a
number of times prior to the final
event, and each time it was an
nounced that he was Portland's
entry in the contest.
Thus Portland listeners became
quite well acquainted with Ray
mond's voice, and it is believed
here that hundreds of them re
cognized it as that of the second
singer In the contest. With land
able "home town" spirit, they vot
ed for the Portland entry.
Except from this alleged "stack
ing of the deck. local musicians
declare, Chadwiek, who Is an un
usually good vocalist, would have
won with ease. The large vote
which be received appears to bear
out this claim. : ; "
Local persons who have been
watching events in the eontest al
so criticised the delay in termin
ating the voting. Results were
not announced until Friday, and
this gave participants an oppor
tunity to tell their friends in what
order they sang, so that even
those who didn't hear the singers,
could have voted for their favor
ites. If any of this was done; It
too would: have favored the Port.
land, entry, as most of those who
voted live la Portland.

Prosecution Vainly Tries to
Postpone Case Until
Health Better
(AP) The determination of Al
bert B. Fall to force the govern
ment to try him now on charges
of bribery or dismiss the indict

his sick bed, enter court in a
wheel chair, and through counsel
successfully oppose the govern

With tfiat the trial continued.
Two witnesses were heard while
Fall slumped weakly In a tall
ehair. He will be taken to court
by relatives again tomorrow.
: Earlier in the day and prior to
Pall's dramatic appearance Justice
William Hits announced from the
bench that four physicians who
had examined the former cabinet
officer at the court's request had
found he was suffering from bron
chial pneumonia, and that his at
tendance at court would endanger
his life.
Fall Now In Hurry
After Many Tears
At that session, government
counsel urged the court to declare
a mistrial on the basis of the phy

opportunity to "secure vindica

Justice Hits reserved his deci

"it is not a trial by a jury, it is a

reception by Queen Isabella after
Athletics Trimmed 3-1 Upon
Own Diamond Due to
Cuyler, Hornsby
Win Is First for National
League Representative
Since Year 1926
Associated Press Sports Editor
SHIBE PARK, Philadelphia,
Oct. 11. (AP) Just when it
looked as though they intended to
spend the rest of the series strik
ing out, Rogers Hornsby and Kl
kl Cuyler suddenly recovered their
batting eyes this afternoon and
propelled the Chicago Cubs to
their first victory in the 1929
world's series.
Hornsby and Cuyler were tied
for the dubious distinction of
striking out six times when they
came to bat against George Earn
show, the big right hander of the
A's, in the sixth inning of the third
game but In rapid succession they
did enough damage to account for
the entire margin by which the
Cubs won, 3 to 1, behind the
crafty twirling of Guy Bush and
put themselves back into the bat
tle for the world's championship.
Bush Pulls Through
With Difficulty
The Cubs were out-hit, nine to
six, and Bush was hard pressed
most of the way, but the battling
Bruins packed enough punch in
their one Inning rally to check the
wild dash of Connie Mack's agile
young men, break their strike out
Jinx for the time being and spoil
the homecoming of the American
League champions.
At the same time, the Cubs
bagged the National League's first
series victory since Oct. 10, 1926,
hereby ending a record losing
streak that had extended through
ten games in three years.
The Athletics still lead by the
commanding margin of 2 to 1,
needing two more victories to
clinch Mack's fourth world's
championship. They are still big
favorites, but it is at least a fight
now, instead of a rout. The series
is certain to go through two more
games, scheduled here tomorrow
and Monday, but if Charley Root
can square accounts for the Cubs
tomorrow, with Lefty Grove in the
box for the A's, it will be any
body's battle once more.
