Holmes, Courageous Employe, Slain at Little Rock HAD WON EARLIER Holmes Had Captured Woman Bandit on Car Last January LITTLE ROCK — Charles F. Holmes, 52, street car operator, was shot and killed ^Monday night by'Jesse James, jegro, 25, when he resisted the Tiegro's effort to rob him. Holmes died before reaching a hospital. James w«s on the operating table Tuesday morning undergoing an abdominal operation. Holmes' single •. shot wounded the negro in tho -ilom- (ich. His condition was regarded as serious. Holmes died without making n statement. He was unconscous when police arrived. No witnesses lo the shooting could bo found, and police had no clues to the slayer. About 11 p. m. James was admitted to the hospital for treatment, and readily admitted to the police Hint he had fired the shots. The operator's courage probably cost him his life. Holmes always was arm- cd while running his car and had told fellow employes he never intended to be robbed. without putting up stiff opposition. . Oil January 5, two women dressed' in overalls, and otherwise disguised as men boarded his cur and demanded his moniy.,: Both were armed, but - Hoiro«t^bfl»un4^i v . 1 ,tjMw { . .his. .own weapon and opened fire. The would- be robbers fled with Holmes in pursuit.. Several shots caused one to stop and he lurned her over to the police. She was Mrs. Jewell Burton, nged 23, now serving a five-year term al the State Farm for Women at Jacksonville. "Cult Murder" Is Retold by Officer Deputy Testifies, Finding Son at "Altar" Where Mother Died INEZ, Ky.—(/P)—The commonwealth completed its lesimony in the Mills "human sacrifice" case here Tuesday. Testimony thai John H. Mills struggled and fought when deputies pulled him from his kneeling position on Ihe body of his molher, Mrs. Lucinda Mills, 67, was given by B! J. Wells, one of Ihose who were depuli/.cd lo go to the home of Tomrnie Boyd when officers first heard of the slaying last February. Wells said lhat when he and the other officers arrived they "found them rejoicing" over Mrs. Mills' dead body. Wells testified that John clung to the chains around his mother's wrists until he pulled her body off the "alas Wells, Deputy Harrison Hinand Deputy Buck Nec-ly struggled with him. Blows were struck in the melee, Wells said. Deputy Rafc Molloll, who followed Wells on the wilncss slaml, said he had lo threaten Blaine McGinnis with his pistol. Lieutenant-Commander Wiley, see- in command, testifies today that tho ship was destroyed because they permitted her tail to hit the water. AH ships—whether of tho sea or of tne air—life paralyzed when, damaged nl the stern, where the rudders are located. But thai may bo technical. What surprises tho public is the fact thai there was no structural failure, no fire—nothing except that the crew were flying the big ship closer to the water than they supposed, Lieutenant-Commander Wiley tells us that he thought the ship was 800 foot nbove water. But the Akron was fully thai long. A palriotic public, loyal lo ils Navy, will wonder, nevertheless, why so big a ship wasn't kept nt a higher altitude —or i&jiavlgation higher up was impossible, why she wasn't returned to her home port Instead of continuing through the storm. XXX George Bernard Shaw, playwright, world-famous wit, turned the tables today on New York newspaper men. Himself a former London journalist, the Irishman royally "high-hailed" the reporters, locking himself in his slates- room aboard ship and refusing to be interviewed. This may appear ingratitude, coming from a man newspapers have dealt most hindly with. That's because you don't understand Shaw. He climbed to fame wilh "Man and Superman"—the play in which he firsl pronounced his doclrine lhal women do the courting, and nol men. And Ihe world, far from being in- pullcd, declared Mr. Shaw wns "a great man." Speaking of Shaw, take the time Eome day to read Samuel Butler's k 'Thc Way of All Flesh" and "Er- whon." Shaw slole his ideas from Butler—the only trouble is, Shaw ad. milted il before anybody found oul. XXX Kentucky officers lasl February found John H. Mills worshipping at a blood-stained "altar" where lay the body of his 67-year-old mother, slain by a mysterious cult thai demanded human sacrifice. ' A court of justice al Inez, Ky., lo•day is tearing the mystery away from BANK OBBER body of men hnd women, who go about the world murdering their mothers. Lay no blame upon Kentucky. Sup- crstitulion and savagery lurk within a stone's throw of every civilized community. One recalls the "hex" .murders near Reading, Pa. New Eng. land not long ago was shocked by a similar religious crime. Intelligence has nothing to do with geography. The world gets neither better nor worse. We only hear more about it—thanks to telegraph wires . ... if you feel like thanking them in moments like t'.iis. Little Rock Youth Escapes Kidnapers Tied to Tree, He Knocks Abductor Over Edge of River Bluff LITTLE HOCK.-Kidnuped by two white men Monday morning, tossed into u boat and carried up the Arkansas river to a rock quarry, lied to a tree on a bluff several hundred fei;l up a steep hill, Edward T.

However, they found a heavy cord still tied around a tree, part of Hancock's undersihirt and other evidence.

Prosperity Club's Final Closing Date Reset at May 20 Contestants Agree to Longer Period, Because of March Crisis FIRST TABULATION Hope P.-f. A. Leading, With Baptist Church Second Arrangements were made Tuesday to extend the closing date of the Prosperity club contest for if 180 in cash prizes, recently announced in this newspaper, until Saturday night, May 20. Results of the first counting of votes cast are published below in this column. The extension of the cloning date was requested by business firms sponsoring the Prosperity club contest in order to give them a chance to get value received for their investment. All of the churches and organizations entering thus far have agreed'to this extension, except one, principals of which had not been interviewed up tb press time. It was presumed they,' too, would agree to the extension. First announcement of the. cash prize offer was February 27, the clay before tho Arkansas banking holiday, followed by n nation-wide holiday, which prevented the Prosperity club from getting a good start. MaYo nominations may be accepted until Saturday night. 7'he ?100 in cash goes to the church or club having the largest number of votes, secured from cash purchases, or payment of accounts in arrears, from 'members of the* club. Second prize has been changed to ?30, and the remaining $50 is to be divided equally among the organizations remaining in the contest hereafter. P.-T. A. Is Leading The first count of voles shows the Hc-oe F.-T. A. leading by a slight majority, followed closely by ths Baptist church. But the vole-gathering is just starting, and many p:o- plc have not yet been securing votes with their purchases; and have not known what organizations were entered. Several members of the Prosperity club may issue as many, votes in one busy Saturday as the total in the count below, indicating that the present count may give no indication of the final standing. Votes will be counted each week and returned to the ballot boxes, to bo counted by a committee from participating organizations at the close of the conlcst. Twenty-five voles arc given with each 25-ccnt sale, and 5 votes for each additional 5 cents thereafter. Accounts in arrears, but not cm-rent accounts, are cntilled to votes just the same as cash purchases. Charge sales are not entitled to voles, due lo bookkeeping and collection costs. You are urged to secure your votes at the lime purchase is made, and il is rcquesled that all votes be east the week they are received. Any church Rail Czar?

When eight persons were broght in. to municipal court for failure to obtain licenses, the sheriff arose jn their defense, explaining that he had granted an extension on his own initiative in Jefferson County until April 25. He asked the judge to continue the cases until the 26th, and advised J. 'Marion Futrell, the governor's nephew, and W. B. Frith, revenue agenls, to cease their activities until lhat time. Transport Billls Outlined; to Pare Down ICC Power Administrative Work Would Be Given Department of Commerce MAINTAIN 4 UNITS Meanwhile, "Czar" Is to Be Found to Reorganize Railroads WASHINGTON —(&>— A detailed program for 'a huge transportation r e g u 1 a tion ageWcy under the Department of Commerce has been completed bl^ Secretary Roper and laid before President Roosevelt. Under the setup, as outlined Tuesday in administration quarters, the Interstate Commerce^ Commission would remain a separate quasi-judicial Unit, but its administrative'functions would "be transferred to tHe new agency. An assistant secretary of commerce would preside; over the'new division, and there,would be four separate units under, him, each with its director, as follow: Land transportation; waterways, aeronautics; and communication. Railroad' Czar 'Likely WASHINGTON—A national ' coordinator of 'railroads will be the keystone of the Roosevelt program for rehabilitation of the American railway system. The principal, question yet to ..be ironed out by the president and the raids is that of how ; much power should be given the man charged with putting carriers of the country on an economical operating basis: These were the main conclusions drawn from; remarks dropped by; rep- White' Hou$e 'VoriferencV recently on the makeup of the emergency railroad program which the administration hopes to send to Congress. While conflicting groups represented at the White House conference made it clear that no definite agreement had been recahed, it was apparent the majority opinion of the group was that a co.ordinator will have to be a part of the railroad program. The consensus also was that the emergency program will provide for division of the railroads of the country into regional groups, probably sevein. Opposition to the wholsesale consolidations may keep that feature out cf the bill. Ship Never Came In t «n ,» " ever wi " return ' awtomoblles of the crew of the ill-fated U. S. S.
