Muscle vs. Music
And Former Wins
Few girls have had as remarkable
a life as Lily Leitzel. The little
lady's mother, herself a wonderful
performer, brought her up in the
hope that she would become the
greatest of all-aerial gymnrsts. Lily
inherited her mother's genius and
proved an apt pupil. But likewise,
from her father, she inherited a
great love for music. And she cul
tivated this talent also.
For a time, as Miss Leitzel puts
it, "there waged a battle between
muscle and music." But music came
out victorious, and the girl put aside
tarlatans and spangles and gave her
entire time to the concert platform.
For two years she followed her
chosen career with considerable suc
cess. But she could not forget the
circus. As time went on the "call"
became stronger and stronger and
finally she succumbed and came
back to it. Today Miss Leitzel is
considered the greatest aerial gym
nast that has ever thrilled a circus
audience. This season she is under
contract with Ringling Brothers and
Barnum & Bailey combined shows
and'will be seen here Monday, Sep

Attorney General Denies
Knowledge on Disposal
Washington, Aug. 17. Attorney
General Daugherty has started an
investigation to find what becomes
of liquor seized by government offi
cials. In reviewing many prohibition
cases which come to his desk, Mr.
Daugherty said today, he had begun
to wonder what became of the vast
quantities of alcoholic beverages
seized by the government in the
prosecution of bootleggers.
While it was the department's
duty to attend to the prosecution of
liquor law violations, he declared he

to some practical use and at the
same time to sav the heavy ware
Seized liquors, Mr. Daugherty
said, could be disposed of for non
beverage purposes to hospitals or
the alcohol might be abstracted and
used commercially. Mr. Daugherty
said he did. not know how much
liquor was stored by the government
in different places, , though it had
been reported there were supplies
valued at between $5,000,000 and
$6,000,000 at nonbeverage prices in
New York City alone.

Of Priest Asks for
Jury of Catholics
Suspect Is Skeptical Over
Possibility of Obtaining
Fair Jury to Try Him,
Redwood City, Cal, Aug. 17.
Willingness to stand trial before a
jury composed of Catholic clergy,
was expressed by William A. High
tower, held here in connection with
the death of Father Patrick E. Hes
lin, murdered Colma Catholic priest.
The prisoner in an interview said"
I have such a high regard tor the
Catholic religion and the Catholic
priesthood that I would be willing
to be tried by a jury of Catholic
priests. I am assured of my own
innocence but I cannot expect a
fair trial because of the ignorant
prejudices of the public mind.
"It would do me no good to
make a public statement of the case
now because I would not be be
lieved. I presume I have always
been a little unsettled mentally and
rav present predicament has ac
centuated this condition.
"I understand that the authori
ties have a mighty strong case
against me although they have not
told me so. That information has
come to me in a round about way.
"If I am freed of this charge I
will make no effort to collect the
reward for the recovery of Father
Heslin's body. They would only
try to hang me again if I should do
such a thing.
"I am convinced that I would be
given a fair trial as far as the judge
and prosecutor are concerned but I
do not believe a fair jury could be
found to try me."
Hightower was positively identi
fied yesterday afternoon by Miss
Marie Wendel as the man who
called for Rev. Patrick E. Heslin on
August 2, the night the priest was
last seen alive. Miss Wendel was
the priest's housekeeper. Miss
Wendel's identification was substan
tiated by Mrs. Bianchi, a neighbor,
who also was positive in her state

Martyr to Dry Law
Declares He Could Have
Saved Life If Alcohol
St. Louis, Aug. 17. A special dis
patch from Monett. Mo., tonight
told of a statement attributed to Dr.
Carlos Copeland, who claimed a pa
tient of his, 2-year-old Reno Bloc
had died a "martyr to prohibition."
According to the doctor, the child
died of carbolic acid poisoning and
had he been able to obtain alcohol
to use as an antedote, he could have
saved its life.
Mr. Copeland made the assertion,
said the dispatch, in a statement to
the state board of health today. He
is quoted as having said:
"I have been refused a permit to

Rail Funding Bill
Legislation Would Authorize
War Finance Corporation
To Use Half Billion to
Washington, Aug. 17. Favorable
report on the administration's rail
road refunding bill was ordered to
day by the senate interstate com
merce committee by a vote of 7 to 2.
The bill would authorize the war
finance corporation to use not to
exceed $500,000,000 to purchase rail
road securities from the railroad ad
ministration and prescribe interest
rate upon securities hereafter ac
cepted from the carriers.
A section to permit re-opening of
settled accounts with the railroads
for the funding of securities of those
roads went out in committee and a
provision added to prevent railroad
funding from interfering with aid
for financing agricultural exports.
The life of the corporation would
be extended to July 1, 1922, under
another committee proviso.
Senator La Follette, republican,
Wisconsin, voted with Senator Stan
ley, democrat, Kentucky, against re
porting the bill while Senator Pom
erene, democrat, Ohio, voted for it.
It developed during consideration
of the bill that the war finance cor
poration is now attempting to form
a syndicate to purchase government
holdings of railroad securities and
relieve the government of further
railroad funding operations.

Fight For Trunk
Of Woman Held as
Ex-Husband of Madelynn
Obenchain Battles Efforts
of Sheriff to Secure and
Open Locker Bag.
Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 17.
Thomas Lee Woolwine, district at
torney, who has been conducting in
vestigation of the slaying of J. B.
Kennedy, has left Los Angeles on
a secret mission, it became known
early today. Information regarding
the nature of his trip or his destina
tion was refused at his office. It
was stated he was "not on his vaca
tion" and that he probably would be
gone about 10 days.
In response to the question, "Has
Mr. Woolwine gone to Chicago to
make investigations in the Kennedy
case?" office attendants refused to
make a reply. Reports that the
district attorney had gone to Chi
cago grew out of the announcement
yesterday that Deputy Sheriff Wil
liam Bright had left the city to in
terview acquaintances of Mrs. Mad-
elynne Obenchain and Arthur C.
Burch, indicted for the alleged mur
der of Kennedy.
Arrival of a trunk here late last
night consigned from San Francisco
to Mrs. Obenchain and the subse
quent attempt of the sheriff's office
to seize . it as possible evidence
against her was the signal for a
"fighting announcement by her at
torney, Ralph R. Obenchain, her di
vorced husband, according to a
story which appeared in the Exam
iner this morning.
The trunk, according to Mr,
Obenchain's statement, belongs to
him, but Mrs. Obenchain had been
using it. Some property in it. he
said, belongs to him. It is a regu
lation army locker trunk and, he
said, was used by him when he was
a lieutenant in the armed forces.
