Means was indicted here today for forg ery in connection with the Senate Daugh erty investigation in which he was a spectacular witness. He immediately pleaded not guilty and was released on .SI,OOO bail. Means, who recently was convicted in New York on a liquor conspiracy case and sentenced to two years in federal prison, is accused in the indictment here of having forged the name of Senator Smith W. Brookhart to a letter pur porting to direct him to deliver all his records, flies, diaries and letters to the Daugherty comnunittee. During the course of the inquiry Means created a sensation by announc ing that the great mass of records from which he had been testifying had been stolen. Committee members were du bious when he explained that two men had come to his home and presented a letter purporting to bear Senator Brook hart's signature, ordering that the letters be delivered to them. To support his story, Means presented to Senator Brookhart what he claimed was the letter in question. Senator Brookhart pronounced the signature a forgery.

Norwood, April 3. —Isaae Dunlap, colored, died' at the 1 Almond plantation near here on Monday morning at 4 o'clock. He was one of the most interest ing characters of the old time slave darkey.’ By profession he was a farmer, a preacher and a ferryman. In all of the professions he ranked high. He knew his Bible in a peculiar kind of manner. Anything that he particularly liked he was sure was Bible doctrine. Re par ticularly liked the Baptist church, his church and preached that it was the only church mentioned in the Bible. No amount of argument about what his tory said would have, any weight All histories and all other looks ancient and modem were wrong unless big Bible said the particular thing. He was al9o interested in his white folks, descend ants of. his master, Joseph Dunlap, and always claimed that. the name Dunlap could be found in the Bible. Argument on this question was also out of order as he invariably believed himself to be right-classing his own white folks as the very highest type of earth. Young Married Woman Charges Seduc tion.

These are called “thermal belts.” 1 In one of its publications, the North Carolina department of agriculture said that “horticultural and climatological' literature contains frequent reference to I thermal belts- or fr-oetless zones;in moun , tain regions.” It added; “More prob-! ably has been written regarding thermal ■ belts in North Carolina .mountains than in any other- section of the country, • doubtless because' the phenomena are more pronounced here than elsewhere iu the east, oit account of the more exten sfve slopes and the greater area.” It was believed by the State horticul trist that nn exhaustive study of thermal belts might furnish valuable information to fruit growers. Consequently there followed an investigation, which began in 1012, as a co-operative project between the United States weather bureau and the North Carolina department of agri culture. As the result of these investigations, it was determined that a thermal belt is not a fixed and definite zone whose boun daries can at all times be located. Under some combinations of weather conditions a thermal belt may be at the base of a slope. Under other condi tions, it may be at the top of a slope. A storm may so mix up the atmospheric currents that the belt may lx- tempo rarily non-existent. However, when nor mal conditions return, so does the ther mal belt. A thermal belt is more or less indefi nite in width, where the minimum tem peratures average higher than at either the base or the summit, but it is free ■ from the frost of the valley and from the freezes of the higher levels. With in this belt, foliage is frequently fresh and green when that above and below , has been killed by cold and frost. BUS OPERATORS REACH NO SCHEDULE DECISION Charlotte-Greensboro Line Has Too Many Cars and Some Must Be Eliminated. Raleigh, April 8. —Inability of bus line operators on the Charlotte-Greensboro stretch to agree today on the basis of 1 eliminating excess equipment ended the conferene with the corporation and no j schedule settled. The sentiment was strong enough for ■ a half hour schedule as there is now be tween Greensboro and Raleigh, albeit, , members of the commission doubted the , profitableness of such operation as that. , The conferees made progress enough to reach an- agreement on the short line building, Greensboro to High Point. Kan- j napolis to Concord, and similar hauls, ( but when the Kirk lines with their 23 j machines and the Dixie with its half j dozen clashed, there was nothing to be ( done but hold another conference.

( The over-equipment of the longer lines between Greensboro and Charlotte will j probably be worked out before it gets to , the commission, otherwise, it will have ( to act. Mr. Kirby asked the commission j -to make a ruling for him so that when he passed old business with his through j hue there would be perfect understand ing If he failed to take on more passeng ers.

Ma| 18-22. and Presi dent Coolidge is expected to attend. 11l that event .the celebration would be the most pretentious of Its kind ever held in the South. About a decade ago Pres ident Wilson attended a May 20th cele bration here, and, up . to that time, this was tlie most outstanding observance of that date ever staged here. However, this year’s celebration, being coincident with tse ses-qui-eentennial of the Meck lenburg Declaration, will be conducted on a much larger scale thau auy previous celebration. Taking (his fnto considera tion, the visit of the President would give it far-reaching prominence. Howard Southgate, graduate of the drama department of the Carnegie Insti tute of Technology and active director in Little Theater work in various cities, is due to arrive in Charlotte next week to .start putting on rehearsals for the pageant. The pageant will be staged in open air. A mammoth theater is now being constructed in Independence Park. There will be five nights devoted to the celebration—May 18, 19, ’2O. 24 and 22. The pageant drama was written by Dr. Thomas Wood Steveps, of the Art Institute, of Chicago, who selected Mr. Southgate to do the directing, in connec tion with T. Bevery Campbell, another assistant of Dr. Stevens. Both direc tors have had considerable experience in pageantry, having, individually or col lectively, assisted Dr. Stevens in some of the most extensive- community dramas ever staged in America. Mr. Campbell’s experience as a director has been more -as a maker of motion pic ture productions than as n director of community plays. His services will be used here more on technical details than on rehearsals on drilling of the cast, which wijl be conducted largely by Mr. Southgate. < # , , V CONTINUE EFFORTS TO ; V o, SAVE DOROTHY ELLINGSON Defense Perfecting Plans as.

That t our thoughts may be unified a series of topics is presented.” During Lent many Church members throughout the country are taking part in the Fellowship of Prayer and in spe cial services. In connection with its call, the council suggests a series of eight topics for sermons during Holy Week. The call suggests that each ehurch might gather its own people for these special services or that a group of churehes might unite. It also suggests that a group of Churches might find central meetings at the noon honr highly valu able.

COUNSELIS READY TO FILE APPEAL Judge Jennings Told Mem bers of the Jury That He Believed the Verdict Was ! a Just One. Hartford. Conn., April 4 (By the AffSy , sociated Press).—Gerald Chapman todajr'ft i was found guilty of murder in the firs#::' degree for the slaying of a New Britain i policeman last October 12th. , The jury had been out a few minutes more thau eleven hours when it an nounced it had arrived at a verdicf. Frederick J. Groehl, chief defense counsel, previously had announced that he would tile an apeal if Chapman was convicted. After dismissing the jury and con gratulating the jurors -‘on reaching this verdict which I believe is a just ver dict.” .fudge Jennings recessed court for half an hour, at which time he set for hearing defense counsel motions to set aside the verdict. State Prosecutor Hugh M. Aleorn. who prepared and presented -the State's case against the mail looter, asked Judge Jennings to immediately pronounce sen tence on Chapman, but the jurist said he first would dispose of defense motions to set aside the verdiet. "Chappie. I’m sorry.'’ Groehl said to the prisoner after the jury had been, dismissed and Chapmen had been re turned to court base basement to await further developments. The attorney, tears in his eyes, reached out for the condemned man's hand. Without a break of the voice, or a wavering of the cold blue eyes, Chapman squeezed his lawyer’s hands and saM, “Oh. that's all right.” Chapman's frail body was erect, his striking head held high, his eye looking straight ahead, as his guards manacled him. He took a choir in his basement cell, asked for a cigarette from one of his guards, lighted it and went into/ whis pered-consultation with Groehl. Sentenced to Hang. Hartford, Conn., April 4 (By the As sociated Presti).—-Gerald Chapman, spec tacular mail bandit, jail breaker, and .criminal extraordinary, today was sen-. ' teneed to hang in the Connecticut state prison June 25, in payment for the life .of, a New Britain policeman of whose murder last October 12th a jury bAd con victed’ him less that) an hour before. Chapman, the stoic criminal, whose flaming misdeeds have made him an in ternational figure, did not flinch or fal ter as his doom descended upon him. With hjs arms .folded across his breast and his frail body held stiffly erect, he listened to the judge's sepulchral words spell out with doom, with only a flushed face to mark bis emotions. The ever vigilant guards stood closely about Chapman as he was led before the judge's high bench for sentence. The prisoner, his face. slightly flushed, folded his arms and with head erect stared- di reeely at the jury. To the customary question about a pre-sentence statement, Chapman answered in clear, level tones. “I have nothing, to say." “The sentence of your court.” Judge Jennings proceeded, “is that you, Gerald Chapman forthwith be taken to the state's prison at Weathersfield and there eon fined until June 25, 11)25, when before sunrise on that day you shall be hanged by the neck until you are dead.” The prisoner’s gaze fell. That, with ■ the flush that still mantled his cheeks* were his only evidence of emotion. The prisoner immediately was shackled, hustled through the prisoner’s pen into the basement, and into an ’automobile which speeded him back to thp prison at ' Weathersfield. There he was returned to the cell he has occupied since the United States government “loaned” hi(n to the state of Connecticut to go on trial for bis life. Find Dead Body of Hiram Gainey.
