Washburn- HOPE, ARKANSAS, tHURSfiAY, MARCH 50, 1933 L^^kMkkfedfe A S The Star feared in a news-story Wednesday afternoon Governor Futrell allowed to become a law the bill relieving 76 Bradley county men, including his private secretary and two other state officials, of $43,000 liability as .bondsmen for a defaulting Sheriff. The governor had until midnighl -{i Wednesday to'veto the bill, ending a patronage practice which he Politicians Rebel % at Professors in Roosevelt Cabinet Afraid to Attack Presi dent, They Snipe at His Appointees RAISP CRY~OF "RED" Phenomenal Speed of Em- Now Slowing Up BY; RODNEY DUTCHER NBA Service Writer WASHINGTON—The war between the professors and the politicians is beginning to get hot. It may reach a showdown with -complete victory for one group or the other, but it's more likely to develop into a standoff which will last for a long time. ' President • Roosevelt has a large group of politicians here and a small group • of professors, scientists, social workers and other non-political experts. The former are in congress and the later already have been packed thick into the administrative branch of the government. Each group has a largo, thoroughgoing contempt for the other. The professors have been helping frame the various emergency measures which Roosevelt has undertaken to jam through congress and they have been standing ready to administer them wilh more granted authority than congress ever let anyone have before. Shows Signs of Fight The politicians helped grease the chute for Roosevelt and the professors at first, but they camo to realize that jprofessors would keep them greas- \e chute indefinitely if they call- halt, So there has been a growing surge of resentment against the speed with which legislation was rushing through their hands, the fuel that they were having no part In it and the fact that power in carload lots was being delivered to the professors. The politicians are really after them now. Fearing popular resentment they shoot at Roosevelt through his nonpolitical aides. Raise Cry of "Red" The Hon. Mike Hart, a congressman from Michigan, sounded the first important battle cry against the professors when he charged in effect tijat one of Roosevelt's closest, most trusted advisers was a Communist. Hart undertook to expose Rex ford G. Tugwell, former professor of agricultural economics at Columbia,University, who was recently made assistant secretary of agriculture, and Dr. Mordecai Ezekiel economic adviser to the Department of Agriculture, charging them with radicalism. Not Political Enough Secretary of Agriculture Wallace himself is a scientist and a writer rather than a politician and there are jny others like him already on the chancery judge should have been the first to denounce. Instead, he sat silent and permitted the law to be enacted without his signature. The Futrell administration has suffered its first major blow. It has lost that fine illusion with which every administration starts, and none finish—the illusion that .in the "new deal" there will be no machine politics. But it grieves and alarms us to know that the Futrell administration, not three months old, has lost this illusion so early and so decisively. It is an ominous omen for the Futrell henchmen, suddenly revealed as a new . and ' great political machine closely crowding around the figure of an •aB«l,--v«fifint, harrassed, jurist. ' XXX No man who has talked personally with the old chancellor, can dispute his grasp on governmental affairs, or doubt his sincerity. But Futrell the man, and "the Futrell administration," are not the same. No man can run'a state single. landedly. He must surround himself with aides.- And it is the Futrell aides and advisors who—with his administration not three months old— lave gravely weakened the old gentleman in public esteem, and caused every top-water politician in rival camps -o yap joyfully. XXX What are the facts in this latest >atronagc? There were three counties in which randsmen for local officials were gong to have to make good thousands of dollars in public tax funds. In one of these counties, Bradley, Governor Permits Bill Become Law Helping Secretary Bondsmen for Officials of 2 Other Counties Also Relieved SALARIES BILL, LAW County Reorganization, Old-Age Pension Enacted Without Signature Governor Futrell at midnight Wednesday allowed a bill relieving DuVall Purkins, his secretary and former Hope man, of liability as bondsman for a former Bradley county sheriff, to become a law without his signature; The governor resisted urgent pleas by attorneys for the state and Bradley county to veto the.bill because it prevented court action to recover $43,000 in tax funds that former Sheriff John C.

Moley of Columbia is now assistant secretary of state and they'll be down on his neck as soon as that department begins* to consider the recognition of Russia. Secretary of the Treasury Will Woodln has gone in for the arts, music and literature rather than politics. Motey and Prof. Adolf Berle of Columbia advised with Roosevelt during i the first days of the banking crisis. At; the Justice Department there's an [excellent chance thet Prof. Felix iFrankfurter of Harvard will be attor- iney general or solicitor general. iFrankfurter, thankjs to his valiant de- Ifenge of Sawo and Vanzetti, would be f another target for the red-baiters. three (1 state officials were among the bondsmen—and one of these officials was the governor's own secretary, DuVall Purkins. And because his secretary, the chairman of the State Board of Education, and the state purchasing agent, wanted relief in one county, and the governor was persuaded to grant it, therefore the bonUsmen are relieved in the other two counties also. Thus do the taxpayers pour money into the public coffers that never reaches its destination! The pity of it is that had those 76 Bradley county bondsmen had to make good their legitimate personal obligation the $43,000 would have cost them only ?566 apiece. But for ?5G6 these days they were willing to sell the governor out! X, X X Nor is the governor himself to be excused. He heard State Comptroller Griffin Smith get up in a public hearing and (Continued on Page TWO) count for. There were 76 bondsmen or Sherif Lee, including three state officials,' a) residents of Warren: DuVall Furkins, the governor's sec retarjf. D. A.. Bradham, president of th< State Board of Education. J. E. Victor, state purchasing agent Relieves Others Also Governor Futrell also permitted to .become.]aw without; his signa_ture_two other bills relieving bondsmen~of Clark and Boone counties of liability for public funds cither unaccounted for or lost in bank failures. * The Clark county bill relieved bondsmen of the county collector. The Boonc county bill aided bondsmen for county officials who lost tax unds in the failure of the county depository bank at Harrison. In all, Governor Futrell permitted 5 acts to become laws without his ignature, the 20-day constitutional limit for veto expiring at midnight Wednesday. The governor said he had grave doubts as to the constitutionality of some of the Measures oh which he refused to act, but declared he thought it best to leave that question to the courts. Among the bills becoming law without his signature are: The county reorganization anl salary bill, Old-Age Pension Is Law The old-age pension bill, levying a 1 per cent tax on state and county warrants, to be set aside in a special fund for old-age pensions. Paupers above the age of 70 will be eligible The bill carries an appropriation ol million dollars a. year. But its constitutionality is threatened, on the ground that it was not passed by two-thirds majority o feach house, as required for appropriations fo/ any new purpose. The act does not become effective until June 9. Constitutionality of the general county salary law is questioned because the fixing of the salaries of each county separately is said to constitute local legislation, forbidden by the state constitution, The governor signed Senate Bill No. 28 (Evans & Gilbert), abolishing county boards of education and county superintendents. As the bill car- Giles Gibson Will Succeed Monroe Hope Man Said to Be Sheriff Wilson's Choice as New Deputy Stuart Monroe's successor as office 1 deputy under Sheriff John L. Wilson will be Giles 'Gibson, of Hope, The Star learned Thursday. With, the removal of Mr. Monroe, a brother of Representative L. F. Monroe, choice of a successor was said: to lie between Mr. Gibson and Frank May; former county clerk and deputy in the State Department of Conservation and Inspection^ who recently returned to Washington from Little Rock. f. The sheriff was understood Thursday to have, definitely given- the job "toMK Gibson."* ' -•"'-•" — No reason ever was made public for the removal of Mr. Monroe, one of the oldest employes in the courthouse. His brother, the Washington and Hope attorney,' led an aggressive fight in the last legislature for passage of the county reorganization bill reducing county officials' salaries, which Governor Futrell allowed to be. come a law Wednesday night. Sheriff Wilson, president of the Arkansas Sheriffs association, opposed >ome features of the reorganization )ill, and succeeded in having certain erms moderated, it is said.

Mitchell, Ex Air Head, Urges Action to Congress WASHINGTON-(#-)-A rempdeled national defense system to "increase efficiency and save 250 to 300 million dollars a year" was recommended to the house military affairs committee Thursday by Col. William Mitchell, former army air corps chief Mitchell proposed that the land, sea and air forces be merged into a department of national defense with one head. Assistants wculd be charged with supervising the activities of the army, navy end aviation divisions. A bill to accomplish that reform has been introduced in the house by Chairman McSwain, of the military affairs committee. Mitchell testified that because of developments in the World war "we are going to have to develop an entirely new policy." National defense, iie said, should center around submarines and airplanes and zeppelins. Supreme Court in Attack on Judges Chief Justice Hughes Criticizes Injunction Favoring the Utilities WASHINGTON—The supreme court Monday severely criticized lower federal courts which granted interlocu tary injunction against states with out investigation showing a basis fo: their action. ' Two federal district courts of threi judges—one in Wisconsin and one in Indiana—felt the sting of the o'pinioi of the court, as delivered by Chief Justice Hughes. The high court vacated the order ol the Wisconsin three-judge court restraining the Wisconsin public service commission from enforcing an order to the Wisconsin Telephone company to cut rates. Without opinion but citing the Wisconsin case, it vacated an order of a three-judge court sitting in South Bend,,Ind,, enjoining the state public service commission from enforcing an order to the Northern Indiana Public Service Corporation to cut rates. Central Kentucky Natural Gas company won an appeal for review of a three-judge federal court decision in its appeal from an order of the state railroad commission denying an increase in gas rates in Lexington, Ky. The lower federal court held the gas rate invalid but declined to make permanent an injunction unless the company consented to impounding of temporary rates on a basis of 50 cents per thousand cubic feet of gas. The rate complained of was 45 cents. Station Wag Fading, and So Was the Set ST. LOUIS.-(^~Tj.

Senate Approves Forest Measure Upper Chamber Then Takes Up lesue of Relief Fund for States WASHINGTON.-(/P)-SighifyinB iti_ inal approval of the forest conserva- ion bill, the senate Thursday moved own the second relief road to which the administration has pointed—the creation of a '/^-billion-dollar fund for direct aid to ithe states. Agreement by the senate to house amendments to the president's forestry measure finished congressional action on that bill. Even before signing it the president was conferring with administration officials to determine how much money would be available for the plan to put men to work in the forests. Enlistments for this work are expected to begin immediately. As it turned to consideration of the relief fund proposal, the senate adopted an amendment to the direct 'relief aill limiting grants to the states by making it mandatory on the relief ad- ninistrator to first determine whether all the money they could raise was nadequate.

The city council passed ordinances cutting the city clerk or recorder from ?75 a m»nth to $60; the city treasurer from J60 to ?50; and the municipal judge from $1,500 a year to J1.200, of which the city pays half. The reduction in salaries is to take effect April 18, when the new term of office begins. When asked why he intended to let ihe three ordinances become a law without his signature Mayor Vesey replied: "It's all right for aldermen to reduce salaries of elective city officials—but he reason I didn't sign the ordinances s because I think it is a matter for he nevy administration to work out,' He failed to comment further.
