Liout.-Col. Edward Wnodford said Tuesday. that he expected some camps to bo operating by April 10. Present plans call for the establishment of ten camps in the Ouachita National forest, and five in the Ozark national forest, and later in such state porks at Petit Joan and Arkansas Post. Governor Futtrll, Licut._Col. Woodford and other officials were- to qon- Xer Tuesday afternoon on further plans, \ ' * \Vork In Arkansas WASHINGTON—The Forest Service 'Monday night, advised Senator Hattie W. Caraway and Representative Heartsill' Ragon that it was planned to'put to work In tho tv/o national for- .csts in Arkansas under the new forestry law, 700 or 800 men by April 15 if possible. These men will work both in'lhe Ozark and Ouachita National forests, and the number of imn will be_incrcased gradually. Forest Service expressed the that detailed information will be 'liable in a day or two, as to how and where the men should apply, together with other instructions, which will be given to the- press at once. Labor Leader Is Chief WASHINGTON—(fl»)-A union labor leader, Robert Fechnor of Massachusetts, was selected Monday by President Roosevelt to direct the forest conservation and unemployment relief program which the president hopes to put thousands ut work in the woods. Fcchncr, vice-president of the International Association of Machinists, will co-ordinatb functions of War, Agriculture, Interior and Labor Departments in getting the movement of unemployed under way within a week Registration of tho Workers of th Labor Department will begun Friday or 'Saturday. The first men chosen will spend part of the week in armj camps for examinations and condit g, with the Forest Service prc to put the. 1 first contingent o cruits to work by April IS. T First reports said tell in flames. This Is contradicted by Commander Wiley's official report late Tuesday afternoon. They simply couldn't keep the big ship afloat. She was demolished when she hit the water. This much at least is comforting. For our American ships are filled wi;h non-inflamablc helium gas. The dirigibles of all other nations arc filled with hydrogen gas—as explosive as dynamite. Tlic Akron went to her doom in the clutches of a stornrwhich her framework or controls could not withstand. XXX Not only docs the Akron disaster go down in history as the worst among lightcr-than-air craft—but it establishes two strong suspicions. One is that there may have been sound reason for suspecting sabotage during the construction of the Akron for which one riveter was tried bul acquitted. The other suspicion is that none bul the German.'! really know how to build dirigible airships. Terrible disasters have befallen tho Elnglish, the French, and Americans; but the original German manufacturers have been almost uniformly successful XXX Almost identical with the Akron catastrophe was the collapse of the British R-44 on a hill in France, more than SO men dying in the wreck. The British lost their air minister in that tragedy—just as we have lost William A. Moffett, head of ths N:-vy's air bureau, in the Akron disaster. The French sent their Dixmudc airship on a flight across the Mediterranean. U vanished—neither a piece of wreckage nor any bodies of the crew ever having been found.

As additional returns became available ut midnight it seemed only a question of how great a margin the rcpciilists would have in the convention which will seat 100 delegates chosen from the state's legislative districts', A simple majority is needed. At midnight U delegates pledged to vote for repeal definitely had been named, Detroit's 17 delegates also definitely will be committed to vote for elimination of the national prohibition law. In addition to these 28 delegates, a large districts heard from were giving their repeal nominees what appeared to be comfortable mar gins. Latest figure's from Detroit, return: from 100 out of 883 districts for 17 delegates, showed: For repeal 20,573 against repeal 2,220. Little Ship Crashes BEACH HAVEN, N. J.—(/P)—The avy blimp J-3, returning from a search for survivors xof* the dirigible Akron, dropped'into the surf off the Boardwalk near here Tuesday. Five of its crew of seven.were rescued. The blimp was caught by a strong northwest wind as it cleared the sea and flew in over Barnegat inlet. Persons on shore saw that it was making little headway and after a short battle with the wind, saw it blow backward and dip into the surf off the boardwalk. The little craft righted itself and rose into the air, only to drop back into the sea. The impact threw its crew into the water. Five of them managed to cling to the life rafts that the aircraft carried. Searching for Akron BEACH HAVEN, N. J.-(/P)-Thc Navy's semi-dirigible J-3, out of Lakehurst naval air station in search of the Akron's wreckage, crashed in the sea 1,000 yards from shore at 1:45 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. \ Two members of the crew were taken from the water, still believed alive, and rushed to a hospital.

Hot Springs and wore on their way j cd from the State Farm for Womei r'N Note: Thin in a series of articles explaining act of the, recent general assembly. Act No, 63 A pre-audit of all claims, whether contractual or otherwise, by the state comptroller was made mandatory undei Act No. 63, which also gave the governor power to disapprove the salary of any state employe whose salary is not definitely fixed by statute. Every state department, institution'-";.—— or agency was required to furnish in duplicate to the governor the name of each employe togethed with the amount of his salary, and the authority—statutory or constitutional— for his employment. The governor was director to transmit one copy to the state or and the other to the state comptroller. The state auditor and comptroller were directed not to approve any claim where there is no money in the state treasury to pay it. Every department 01' Institution lead was required to file with the comptroller certified copies of all contracts or resolutions authorizing expenditures of state monies. All claims (except for salaries) must JE approved by the state comptroller before, the auditor can issue his war- ants for them. The auditor also is nstructed to retain all vouchers for laims for a period of five days. One effect of the new law—although lot stated therein—will be to give he public as least weekly a publish- d statement of the condition of the tate finances. This has been promis- d by State Comptroller Griffin Smith. At least once a week, he said, he will compile a statement of condition of various funds and release it through the newspapers. Since all claims must pass through the comprtoller's hands, he will be able to tell at the cose of each day's business the exact condition of state finances. An important section of the act makes it mandatory upon all collecting agencies to pay into the treasury within one week of collection all money received. It also restricts the treasurer from paying out any money except where the claims for such have been pro-audited by the state comptroller. One exception as to money • being paid into the treasury is made in the case of the state land office, which may carry $5,000 or less in a bank account from which to pay for advertising and attorney's fees in connection with suits to confirm title to State lands. However, No claim on this fund may be paid until it has been approved by the state comptroller. 0 Caddo Kiver to cat breakfast.
