NEW YORK, July 24 (AP)
The Rer. Joseph Lynch, Ford
ham university seismologist, to
day told how seismologists, who
hare been content with reporting
earthquakes after they . happen,
are seeking to perfect their sci
ence so that some day they may
predict earth movements and
sare countless lives by their prog
nostications. "The Japanese Mn particular
are working toward this end," he
said. -"We have learned that a
gradual tilt in the earth's crust
invariably precedes a Quake. Now
it we can record and chart these
tilts, which are imperceptible to
the eye of man, we will be able
to tell where earthquake iones
are forming."
la Germany, Father Lynch ex
plained to an interviewer, seis
mology is being used in a com
mercial way. Artificial earth
quakes are created by explosives.
-By measurements obtained from
recording Instruments, the min
eral content of the earth at that
Point may be calculated.

Apparently 1 a f n, . Henrlett
Schmerler, 23, Columbia univer
sity. New -York, student, was
found dead 'in a shallow-ravine
near iuo run Ap&cua 'vemeiery
today. She had been missing
since Saturday. '
The supposed killing was ' a
complete .mystery. The ground
near the body showed evidences
of a struggle but the girl bore no
flesh wounds apparent. She was
here to study Indian life on -a
research grant of the Columbia
anthropology department and had
lived for a month alone in a cab
in at Eastfork, four miles from
Apache reservation headquarters.
She had been given to lonely ex
ploration of the countryside on
foot. 1 ;
Officials encountered rumors
that Miss Schmerler may have
aroused Jealousy among younger
Indian women by her mingling
with the tribe. There was no con
firmation of this.
. The body was found by Deputy
Sheriff George Woolford, heading
a searching party of 25. Apaches.
The discovery was made a few
hours after Frank D. Fackenthal,
Columbia university secretary,
had asked Got. Hunt of Arizona
to aid the search.

"We have a state prohibition

CHICAGO, July 24 (AP)
Ralph Capone's appeal from con
viction for Income tax violations
was - denied today, dashing the
hopes of two other "public ene
mies," of escaping penitentiary
terms as well as his own.
The United States circuit court
of appeals affirmed the federal
district court In sentencing the
elder brother of the more no
torious "Scarface" to three year
in Leavenworth penitentiary, and
a fine of $10,000.
The charge was attempting to
defraud the government of taxes,
penalties and Interest amounting
to more than $300,000 on an In
come of $2,000,000 In 1922, 1923.
1924 and 1925. It resulted from
Capone's declaration that he owed
only $5000, that his only assets
were two broken down race horses
and that he was prepared to bor
row $1000 if the government
would settle for that sum.
Frankle Lake and Terry Drug-
gan, former twin millionaires of
he beertrade, had pleaded guilty,
"with reservations." to evading
payment-of income taxes. They
bet their chances on Capone's
winning his appeal. . They.' now
