But reading Crown Prince Wilhelm's ^hi^Tihith About My Life" in the current issue of Liberty r .lpgine I am filled with pessimism regarding those en- jlghtened societies who believe that once the nations know and understand each other there will be no more war. The German crown prince tells us about his close acquaintance with hi» Knglish cousins, and his profound admiration for Queen Victoria, his grandmother—yet all that this family intimacy produced was the bloodiest war in the history of the '' It the close acquaintanceship of B (•.'family gorup Can't make men understand each other, what hope is there 'or the common run of citizens, be- ween whom there are no blood ties? How are we to suppose but that the more men know each other the bloodier will be their wars? I think the United States is wise in planning to withdraw from the Phil- ppines, from a sphere that belongs to Japan; and would be still wiser in Missouri Pacific Escapes Bankrupt Court Proceedings Owes 40 Millions Saturday, With No Money to Meet It ORDER IS GRANTED Federal' Judge Appoints Old Management to , Continue Operations ST. LOUIS souri Pacific (/P)— The Mis- Railroad com- pariy filed a petition in federal court here Friday asking authority to ; reorganize to prevent a receivership. The company stated that it owed $40,589,330 due Saturday and within the next 30 days, and is without funds to meet the obligation. Judge G. B. Paris approved the petition, and ordered; the present management to continue in office. This is ^believed here to be the first reorganization petition filed under the terms of.the new federal bankruptcy act passed by the last congress > ( The act/almed to give railroads and other larg«t .industrials a breathing spell ,to, "Void costly recolversh'p pro- ''ngs where a reorganization could Missouri Pacific's petition in',(-'', ' eluded the main' Une and subsidiary. •'''^unltf'ofthe'sysfeiCthe New Orleans, 1 VTexas St Mexico Railway Co., and the International 4 Great Northern Rail- road'Co. • Sheriffs to Fight Salary Slash Act Constitutionality of County Reorganization Law to Be Challenged LITTLE ROCK—With discovery Thursday that the emergency clause to the general county salary bill was adopted by 'both nouses, contrary to the belief of many legislators, it was reported at the capitol that plans are being made by a group of sheriffs to institute suit immediately to test constitutionality of the act, which became a law without the governor's signature. A sheriff from southeastern Arkan,.-!\ sas, who asked that his name not be JB%Ked at this time, told the Arkansas '^VcJazette that sheriffs and collectors in 'various sections of the stale have subscribed to a fund to pay the cost of carrying a suit through the Arkansas Supreme Court to test constilulional- Ity of the measure. State Comptroller Griffin Smith obtained a typed copy of the act from the secretary's office and will furnish copies to county auditors working out of' his office for their guidance in auditing records of the various counties, Each County Separate The act sets up a separate schedule of salaries or fees for officials of 72 counties and provides that ths measure shall not affect the initiated local salary laws approved by the volers of Union, Phillips and Cleburne counties at the general election last November. The only statewide general provisions of the act attempt to abolish publication of the delinquent tax list and to provide that the act shall not prevent counties from initiating local salary laws. Confusion as to the emergency | plause resulted froni the fact that the effirmalive vole on the bill in the house was only 59, or 18 short of the ,wo-tWrds required to adopt the em- _Sgency clause. Twenty-one additional members voted for the emergency Clause on the separate roll call, how- i'ever, and the emergency clause was leciared to be adopted. It also was ipproved by the senate. Initiated Measures Stand Representative Luther J. Wilkes of 'hiilips county, who' sought to pre- r ent the bill from interfering with the tiated salary law adopted in that tty last fall, said that the general •y act cannot apply to the three lUoties having Initiated acts because jat$d measures cannot be amended ir repealed, except on a two-thirds looking sharply to her national defense, so that we may always be as strong on this side of the Pacific as Japan is on hers. XXX "A Reader" thus consoles me on the loss of Victor Emmanuel the Third, The 'Star's office cat: Re Victor: Nothing can be done about it. No need to—he will come back. They always do. A READER But I took your advice, did nothing, and he hasn't come back. What shall I do now? Sue you later. XXX Saturday being the first day of April, which seems to put winter behind us, I feel safe in publishing some early American humor on the topic of influenza. Believe it or not, influenza used to be like the tariff and the government deficit—something for one political party to blame on the other! When Andrew Jackson was president, his opponents called influenza "Jackson's itch." President Tyler heard his opponents on the stump describe it as "Tyler's grippe." We Americans always supposed influenza was an old Spanish custom. Actually the word is borrowed from the Italian, "influence"; but sometimes we borrow from the French instead, and, the French, being highly iroaslnatlvo, sCiiJl-4* La, Qrippc.. . This old custom of blaming influenza on someboy else and even naming it after them, runs all around the world. I find that the Russians call it "Chinese catarrh." The Germans call it the "Russian pest," The Italians name it the "German disease." The French say it is the "Italian fever." But whatever you call it—and no matter how many times—it's a very old custom. Influenza was a plague in 412 B. C., when Hippocrates speaks of it.,: And now that we've closed the book on influenza, we'll open it to April 1st, and think of Spring. COURT OPENS MON — • . " . =_ . ^ t _ - • - - V . $ j^.,1^^1 ..

PHOENIX, Ari.—(/P)—Winnie Ruth Judd, 28, Thursday night was denied commutation of her death sentence for the slaying of Agnes Anne LeRoi by the Arizona Board of Pardon and Parole. The board, however, granted her a rcprive until April 21 to avoid execution of the death sentence on Good Friday. The board Thursday afternoon inspected the duplex apartment in whi h Mrs. LeRoi and Miss Hedvig Samuelson were killed October 16, 931. The board addressed a letter to Gov. B. B. Moeur in which it said "this board respectfully declines to make any recommendation to the governor of the state of Arizona for a commutation of sentence." Governor Moeur, under Arizona law, has no power to commute the sentence without recommendation of the Board of Pardons and Paroles. "Friday, April 14," the board told the governor, "is Good Friday. The Board of Pardons and Paroles, is of the opinion that, in deference to this day, a preprive of one week should be granted." Mitchell Doubts Refunding Is Valid State Senator Reviews Legislature for Hope Rotary Club "The 1933 General Assembly will be known as 'The Reorganization Session,' " State Senator L. L. Mitchell of Preseott, representing this (the 20th' senatorial district, told Hope Rotary club Friday noon at Hotel Barlow. Praising the session as a whole, Governor Fulrell, and the presiding officer of the senate, Lieut.-Gav. Lee Cazort, Senator Mitchell went on to say that the legislature's economy program was effective. "The senate" he said, "operated during the regular 60-day session on 21 1-14 per cent of the expense of the senate of two years ago—a saving, therefore, of 78 13-14 per cent." Senator Mitchell said he seriously doubted the justice ql the Kills bond refunding act, although Governor Futrell insisted on its passage. "I don't think the innocent purchasers of our bonds should have beer, subjected to such a rigorous reduction in interest due them, after the bonds had been sold on our guarantee," said the senator; "but the fact is that Arkansas had more notes coming due than she could meet on present revenues. "It was Governor Full-ell's conten- lion that since our main revenue comes from the highways enough money should be impounded to maintain them for Iraffic—but then (here wasn't enough money to pay off our deb's. Whether the Ellis law is conslilu- tional, and can be enforced againsl Ihe innocent purchasers of our bonds, is something to be gravely doubted.

William O. Coc, Oklahoma county representative, whose resolution for a referendum en the state's dry laws failed -early in the session, prepared a new resolution for initiating such a movement. Coc's resolution contained a specific ban on return of the saloon. Meanwhile a bill by Senator Charles Moon of Muskogee, providing brewers may advertise beer in Oklahoma, was advanced to the senate calender. Senate Votes Labor Aid WASHINGTON — (ff>) — The second step in the administration's vast unemployment and hunger relief program —appropriation of $500,000,000 for direct federal grants • to the states—received overwhelming approval of the senate Thursday, and was sent to the house, where passage is expected Monday. The vote, 55 to 17, came after congressional action had been completed on the first part of the Roosevelt relief legislation—to authorize employment of about 250,000 men on conservation work in the forests. Administration advisers already are at work on the third unemployment aid proposal and ' a message on the subject will go to congress soon, This will call for a huge public works enterprise to be financed by a federal bond issue rather than appropriations from the Treasury, as in the past—on the theory that future generations shall bear part of the expense for buildings that will last for years to come.

T. Oliver placed under arrest Wednesday. It was reported several ministers had said that "there are 8,000 people in Little Rock who will tear out the front of the theater if tha showing of 'Ingagi" is permitted." Small crowds milled about the city hall corridors and the Chancery Court room until they were assured that petition for the restraining order had not been filed. Another report was that the disturbance caused by the closing of the Arkansas theater may result in the closing of all Little Rock motion picture shows on Sunday. The ministers repeated their demands that the Sunday shows be stopped. Dual Track Meet Here on Saturday Nashville to Compete With , Bobcat? at 'Fair Park . at 2 P. M.
