The thing that invariably im- presses one about Tom Blanton is the fair, gent'emanly and dignified manner in which he conducts a ¢ross-examination.

It is rumored that Ty Cobb has knocked a home run in Wall Street with the bases full.

e © *

Senator Willis falls lifeless in the midst of thore who knew him and loved him best, the people of his own home town, and a political situation almost unprecedented is rendered more chaotic, not only in Ohio, but in the country. Death, which lately took one of his col- leagues, evens the balance of power in the Senate.

New York grand jury indicts the quinine trust. Bitter! bitter!

Bank runner is robbed in the hall- way of his own building and a grocery store already sanitary is unnecessarily cleaned by a bandit. What this town needs is more police- men to guard Congressman Blanton from the kickers.

The Senate confirms the Federal dodgasting commission just when it looked as though Mr. Caldwell would be put on the air.

\s Stricken on Stage at

Delaware; Succumbs in an Anteroom.

COLLAPSES IN ARMS OF AID, C. A. JONES

‘Never Felt This Way Before,’ He Says; Calls Wife as Club Sings ‘Farewell.’

ee

Delaware, Ohlo., March 30 (A.P.).— United States Senator Frank B. Willis, candidate for the Republican presiden- tial nomination, died of cerebral hem- orrhage here tonight In an anteroom at Gray’s Chapel of Ohio Wesleyan Unt- vetsity, where 2,500 persons had gathe- ered to listen to Delaware’s son deliver @ campaign address in a huge home- coming celebration.

On the stage, unaware of his passing, the Buckeye Glee Club, of Columbus, was singing a campaign song, “Fare- well.”

Senator Willis died at 9:09 p. m., when he fell into the arms of his sece- retary, Charles A. Jones, just as he en- tered the anteroom.

Senator Willis was just preparing to speak when he became ill. As he left the stage with Mr. Jones, he remarked, “Jones, I never felt this way in my life. There is something awfully wrong.”

Grasps for the Wall.

Then, as they entered the anteroom, Mr. Jones said the senator staggered, grasped desperately at the wall and slumped. The secretary caught him just before he reached the floor.

The senator called @eebly for his wife. She was summoned quletly off the stage, only to enter the anteroom as her hus- band drew his last breath.

Secretary Jones returned to the stage and announced:

“Mr. Willis never will be with us any more. He its gone from us for all time.”

He asked that all persons leave the hall and allow only relatives to remain.

Followed Torchlight Parade,

The crowd, which only a few mo-

' ments before had participated in the

greatest political ovation Delaware had ever known, had marched in a torche- light parade, had carried red fire and had listened to a band, was stunned.

A moment of silence, then pandemo- nium. People jumped from their seats and hurried from the hall. A few, dumbfounded, could not move, and sat gfued to their seats. Tears ran from the eyes of many of his old friends. It

| death in his old home town could not

| have been more profound. Only Wed-

) | nesday he was his towering, jovial self '

'his resonant voice engaged in banter |with his colleagues. Dire personal ones.

It was Wednesday that he returned again to his State to carry on the work | which circumstances assigned to him |in this campaign. These circumstances withheld a major chance of his attain- |} ing the Presidency, but assigned to him |& major role in the presidential cam- paign. This was the stopping of Secre- tary of Commerce Hoover.

And it was inevitable that with last night’s regret at the senator’s death there should be coupled thought as to how his death will bear on presidential campaign. anti-Hoover forces will withdraw from the field remains to be seen. If they should do so, leaving the Secretary un- challenged for the State’s 51 votes there

MISES,

TO BE $90,000 00 PRESIDENT IS TOLD

Budget Bureau Figures, Laid Before Him, Increase All Estimates.

HOUSE COMMITTEE SEEKING EXACT SUM

When Definite Determination ls Reached, Redraft of Bill Will Follow.

-

President Coolidge understands that |

the Welch bill to raise the pay of Fed- eral workers would cost the Govern- ment about $90,000 000 a year, it was eaid at the White House yesterday.

Three estimates have been made now as to the cost of tne Welch bill—-the $90,000,000 estimate of the Budget Bu- reau, the $68,000,000 estimate of the Bureau of Efficiency. and the $35,009.- 000 estimate of the National Federation of Federal Employes

Must Redraft Measure.

The first thing that the House civil service committee will have to do is determine definitely just how much the Treasury can stand for salary raises, and draft a bill accordingly.

As it is now written, the bill would grant an average increase in salary of a little less than $300,000 a year to about 120,000 employes, 60,000 of whom are in the District of Columbia.

Substitutes Are Suggested.

The civil service committee will not |

again consider the bill until some day next week. The day will be set when Representative
