Blaze Hits Fashionable Ho
tel in New York; Eight
Firemen Overcome
NEW YORK, Jan. 3 (AP)
A man and a woman died tonight
in a fire which swept through
the air and elevator shafts of the
annex building of the fashionable
apartment hotel Margury. Eight
firemen were overcome fighting
the blaze.
The fire was preceded by an. ex
plosion in the sub-basement.
Flames shot up through the shafts
to the roof of the 11 story build
ing, showered sparks on the pent
house. As firemen battled the
flames, a second explosion shatter
ed windows in sh'ops on the
ground floor.
Mrs. Louis Leichtenhelm, 60,
died of a heart attack after she
had walked to the street from her
apartment. Hotel attendants said
she had been ill for some time.
The body of a man believed to
be William Cass, an engineer in
the building, was found in an ele
vator wh'ich had stopped at the
fourth floor.
As smoke and flames swept
through the building, the lights
went out and the elevators stop
ped. Firemen ordered all persons
out. Police carried from the
building several persons rendered
unconscious by the smoke.
The hotel occupied the block
between Park and Madison aven
ues and 47th and 48th streets.
The fire was confined to the Mad
ison avenue side of the hotel, con
nected by a covered bridge with
the Park avenue side.
Fire Chief Ke'nlon said the fire
probably started from a short
circuit in the sub-basement. No

tainable. Students From

groups of Willamette university
seniors will do practice teaching

hibits members of the city coun
cil participating in any business
transaction with the city, accord
ing to an opinion prepared by
Fred A. Williams, city attorpey,
in response to a request from

The Income tax is proving to be
the most generally acceptable and
equitable form of taxation, and it
would be the proper method of

Mott, former member of the state
legislature and now a local attor
ney, told the members of the Sa
lem Lions club at Friday's lunch
eon. The old age pension, Mr. Mott
said in resuming the discussion he
began at the luncheon a week ear
lier, is certain to come because
the problem of the indigent poor
is steadily increasing.
This is no fault of anyone of
anything excepting the economic
and industrial system, said Mr.
Mott. The average man will be
dependent on someone relatives
or t he puMic if he lives beyond
the age of 65, fie added, quoting
statistics to prove his point.
Out of 100 men 25 years old.

one will be wealthy, four will be
well-to-do, five will be Just able
to support themselves and 54 will
be wholly or partly dependent.

weapon in menacing fashion.
Fisher, who can still recall his
football career at Willamette
university without any trouble,
caught the hammer on the down
ward swing and overpowered
Barker. But he had a fight on
his hands all the way from Bar
ker's home to the police station.
Barker, according to the offi

the desk sergeant said later the
man was still too drunk to be
taken into justice court that day.

wreckage and signalled to other
crafts after her hook had been
hauled in and was found to show
traces of red paint, the color of
the airplanes. Later an airplane
wheel and strut ware raised. The
planes, which fell in flames 3500
feet together, but broke apart at
the impact with the water, were
