Washburn- PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT has called a conference on I Wofld trade in Washington this spring, and you read on thffc page yesterday that Great Britain and France have agreed to participate. Sortie folks say the United States ought to leave Europe strictly alone. Mr. William Randolph Hearst, who owns 26 Of the largest American newspapers, says we ought to leave Europe alone—that Europe has nothing to do with the American panic. * *«?WfWI Other folks say we can't leave Europe alone—that Europe has a great deal to say about whether the United States is 'ever'going to be prosperous again. One of these.is Peter Molyneaux, editor of the Texas Weekly, and a member of the Sloan Committee on War Debts. <?. Mr. Hearst beats the old political | war drum, writing (n his Chicago Herald & Examiner as follows: "It seems Inconceivably short-sighted for the Democratic administration to follow in the international foot- stcp& of the late unlamentcd Hoover and run the risk of alienating the progressives from the Democratic j party .... yet that seems to be what the Democratic administration is about to do. It is interesting Itself unduly and unnecessarily In foreign affairs." XXX Unnecessarily? Mr. Molyneaux leaves politics aside (Mr. Hearst blows Republican and Democratic every other election) and gives us some plain facts. He considers his own state of Texas (and the sarrie facts apply to Arkansas): "Texas buys much more from the American people than the American people buy from Texas, But in order to do this, it is necessary for the people of Texas to sell to Europe and Asia a much larger amount per per. sen that the people of any other state in the Union .... The detained figures for 1932 arc not yet available, but I do not think that Texas exports for that year will amount to more than $50 per capita, as compared with $146 in 1923 .... When we stop buying automobiles, as we did in 1930, it means unemployment in Detroit, and the unemployed in Detroit stop buying things, too." Mr. Hearst has words—but Mr. Molyneaux facts. None but a hopelessly prejudiced man believes America can enforce her "white elephant" claim on European war debts, unless she is prepared to face private bankruptcy at home while the .private citizens of Europe are paying their governments the 'necessary ; t«x«tion'VtoiS»*jltho»« war . , < v' • • v. .

' . In 19 states and the District of Columbia the kile of beer containing 3.2 per cent alcohol by weight becomes legal at that time. Brewers in some of those stutc plan to deliver beer ns soon as it becomes legal. Others, ruling out jubilee parties at midnight, say beer will not be delivered before breakfast-time. Six other states have legalized the sale of beer at a later date, and legislation is pending in a number of other states. . Celebration Opposed NEW YORK—(XP)-Jacob Ruppert ,., ,*hrew the wciaht of his position as }>*># «rf«,«rt/-J^-SK-V.iJ'i"' lf.9- '#**V f r "B-'*- -tf- ' ' '' S'"fc*- ' •» . preVidenf of lh*-Ui\ife<l -States Brcw- <ers Association "Wednesday against a "carnival" welcoming of 3.2 per cent beer in the early hour,s of April 7. Nineteen slates and the District of Columbia will permit Immediate sale on ;Frlday. Colonel Ruppert counseled against an "untoward celebration" and explained he spoke for brewers the nation over in decreeing that deliveries would hot be made until 6 a. m. jBut it appeared certain that legal "er will flow into steins in many •cities soon after the midnight hour, as other breweries announced their intention of speedy delivery. In St. Louis, Anheuser-Busch and others said they would go forward with plans for distribution one min- uto after midnight even If they received the association order from Ruppert before then. In Philadelphia und Chicago, some brewers said cases would be carted out at 12:01 a. m. New York Regulations How closely brewers in New York . city and state would follow Ruppcrt's order was not immediately known. While the New York legislature re- .malned deadlocked over a plan for beer control, sale of the brew was assured in the absence of prohibitory laws. In New York city Mayor.John P. O'Brien tonight set up temporary regulations of beer under jurisdic- • tion pf the Board of Health, to be rescinded when the state control laws are adopted. Issuance of permits will ..start Thursday in five buroughs . fijL for manufacture of beer or light • *^wines, the city will levy a J100 tax; for whoscsalcrs a $50 tax; to sell beer on draught $25; to sell beer in bottles to be consumed on premises $15; to sell bottled beer not to be consumed on premises $10. In Minneapolis, the City Council overrode Mayor W. A. Anderson's veto of a regulatory ordinance, which he held In violation of the Eighteenth amendment and immediately issued 429 licenses. The price of bottled beer, Colonel Ruppert said, would be $1.60 a case to jobbers and $2 to consumers. Not a Dry County MILWAUKEE, Wis.—(/P)—Additional returns from the state-wide ref. crcndum Tuesday gave emphasis to Wisconsin's disapproval of the Eighteenth amendment. With returns complete from 2,365 of tho state's 2,899 voting precincts, the vote was: For repeal, 536,800; against, 111,971. AH cf the 14 selected for delegates to the constitutional convention to be held at Madison April 25, are committed to vote for outright repeal. Opponents of prohibition hailed the triumph as complete.

Bates Station as 4 Shots Are Fired at Them Hempstead county officers Thursday were searching for two men, one beileved to be wounded, who obtained gasoline ad oil at Bate's filling station on the Fulton highway Wednesday night, and then sped away under a volley of gun fire. Dewey Cozby, filling station operator, fired four shots at the fleeing car as it was driven west down the paved Fulton roald, after the occupants refused to pay for the gas. Night Officer Turner was notified and a search immediately started. Turner and Cozby came upon the car a few minutes later on a rural road leading from the concrete highway to the old Fulton gravel road. The automobile had been abandoned, and the men evidently had fled to the woods. 3 Bullets Hit Car The car occupied by two men, was a late model Chrysler sedan, bearing Louisiana license. Three bullets from Cozby's gun had pierced tho body of the car, one taking effect in the side of the automobile, another at the rear and the third going through the windshield. ^ . / t ; '- Cozby"-«»id he ^nought the -fourth bulle't hlftheVdrivdi" inT^s left shuld- ; 'er.;'The,,two tpen -were describedjtes being about 22'yeare old.

Both appeared to be "jelly-beans," Cozby said. yr Escape by Ruse i The cnr drove .into the station';from the east entrance. The driver obtained 14 gallons of gasoline and a quart of oil. He then asked the filling station operator for a package of cigarettes. As Cozby turned to get the cigarettes the driver stepped on the •accelerator and sped away. Cozby fired four shots at the fleeing car. Then called Officer Turner. An automobile described as the same sedan, passed over the Fulton toll bridge Tuesday afternoon at a high rate of speed, traveling east toward Hope. The car was thought by officers to have pecn stolen in Louisiana. An effort is being made to locate the owner. L. R.

What Legislature Did XXX By The Associated Press Editor's Note: — This is a series of articles explainiuy acts of the 1933 general assemply. Act No. 144 Act No. 144 or 1933 fixed June 15 as the last date for payment of poll taxes that would qualify the holders to-vote. Poll taxes due this year are for assessments made last year, prior to April 10. Any person who has not assessed a poll tax may, up to and including June 15, go before the clerk and make an assessment and pay a penalty of Jl— 25 cents of which shall go to the clerk for his services, and 75 cents to the county general fund. If the assessment be made after April 10, the co- lector also must add a penalty of 25 cents for failure to pay the poll tax at the time prescribed for making pay. ment without a' penalty which is April 10. ..',:. Women are not required by the con- stitutio ntp pay a poll tax unless they want to vote, and in that event the supreme court has held that they are subject to the laws relating to. assessment and collection of poll taxes. A poll tax receipt issued on or before -June 15 entitles the holder to vote in any election between June 15, 1933, and June 15, 1934, Any person who has become of age since the time for assessing taxes in 1932 ^April 10) may, if possessing other .qualifications of an elector, vote without a poll tax receipt at any election fcrior to June 15, 1J34.
