All the Barrymores Appear in_^Raspu t i n " John, Ethel and Lionel Play Lead* in FUitt Story of Russia'* "Holy Devil," Opening at Saenger Thursday Afternoon "Rasputin and the Empress," probably the most discussed motion picture of the year, will open Thursday at the Saenger, following its successful ruft at the Astor theater in New York and extended showings in the principal cities of the United States. John, Ethel and Lionel Barrymore are starred in the tliree principal roles of the production, appearing together for the first time on the screen during their respective careers. "Rasputin and the Empress" is based on an original story by Charles MncArthur, well known for his work on "The Front Page," "Lulu Belle" and other stage and screen dramas. The film is said to present with fidelity the personal details of the "career of Russia's "Holy Devil," from his birth in a peasant community in Siberia through his rise to power, his association with the Czarina and his mysterious control of the Romanoff court. ' ' ' . John Barrybore has the -part of Prince Chegodieffy intimate friend of the Czar and Czarina. Ethel Barrymore plays the Czarina, while Lionel Barrymore, last seen in "Grand Hotel," is seen as Rasputin. The role of the Czar is filled by Ralph Morgan, and that of the little Siarevitch by Tad Alexander. Both Morgan and Alexander were recently seen in "Strange Interlude." Other important roles are played by Diana Wynyard, the English stage star, C. Henry Gordon and Edward Arnold. In "Rasputin and the Empress,' Ethel Barrymore makes her first appearance in a dialogue picture ant has her first film role in a number of years. The picture opens with a 2:30 matinee Thursday afternoon. ff|};* Jrtf' BRUCE CATTON fed Employment,'' by Lse miiuu Chadwick, is an interesting itUsion of the unemployment prob- |>>lincL* r a v good part of its interest : the fact that its author is ICa^UUlIfc &UC.

As a remedy, he urges business to adopt, voluntarily, the short work week; a 30-hour week if necessary, 3) 25-hour or even a 20-hour week if it seems advisable. When a depression comes, he says, let every factory keep every man on the job and cut the lours of work to a minimum. In thjft way every worker is always earning something, however little. Fear of unemployment, the great breeder of panic, is ended and hoarding is abolished. Mr. Chadwick is a bit of a Bourbon hi his insistence that this reform be entrusted to business rather than to the government; but his book is a stimuating example of the way a business man can 'think along radical lines.

Editor The Star: As you of course know there are those who advocate a plan whereby all tl^ nations of the world would pool a small number of soldiers whose duties U would be to keep peace in the world thereby stop* ping this foolish thing of competitive armament building. I am one of those who think this plan is workable—not only workable, but the only common sense way of ever insuring ourselves against that greatest of all human tragedies, war. It is our only way to economic stability. I noticed in your paper some time ago the statement that the above plan was unworkable due to "a very deep current in human behavior which would not permit a German to risk his neck over a brawl batween a Frenchman and an Italian, or a Jap and a Chinaman, etc." In other words, that man did not care to interfere In some one else's jusiness. He forgets that man is in he height of his glory when he is at- ending to other peoples affairs. ' . We people who advocate this plan also study psychology and take p'sy r chology into it with us. We want a smtil strip of land somewhere, preferably in the Pacific ocean where we can locate about 500,000 soldiers. Sach nation being represented in num- jer according to its relative importance in world affairs, etc. We want nothing short of the highest in intelligence; we want them well paid; let them have families and children under a very rigid birth control system; let -them live in homes instead of tents; allow no promises of old age pension; allow no industries there which would make its trade an important issue in world affairs. I will try and go no further into detail about the constiution of this colony of "world police" but I will say that it is absolutely workable in evsry respect. We would have, after the first generation (or possibly the second generation) a separate race of people whose heritage it would be to keep peace in the world. It would then be as much their business to enforce a World Court order on one nation as on another.

J.—(fl>)^-The cjues- toion of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation's bonus system for officials, which formed the basis of a court action two years ago, was fevlved Tuesday In an action filed in chancery court to compel Charles M. Schwab, chairman of the board, Eugene G. Grace, president, and other officers to repay allegedly excessive amounts they received between 1917 and 1930. In the compblalnt, filed by Charles C. Stalter of Patterson, attorney for the Standard Investment Company holder of 150 shares of preferred stock, Grace Is referred to as the "chief beneficiary of the wrongful admin, istatlon of the system." The complain) states he received a bonue of $1,626,75.' in 1929, and a total of $5.745.307 between 1925 an'd 1930 when the Ins bonuses werWe paid. The amounts paid in bonuses, say: the complaint, were "entirely beyonc the bonus plan as authorized and limited by the stockholders and ns intended by them." These amounts, the complaint-goes on, "were wholly ou 'cf proportion to the value of the scr vices rendered." Is '• Of Forest Army Jtaj. II. Y. Stunrt, above, chlotf ot tlin U. S.

Political Juggling Destroyed County Reduction •/ -. •Senate Changed Figures for Each County—Held Bill Until Last Minute FORCED UPON HOUSE Lower Chamber Had to Approve It Without Killing Amendments LITTLE ROCK—(AP) — Bearing out predictions freely made by some of its leading supporters, all the time the ,933 legislature spent on ity salary reduction legislation apparently was wasted. ' Attorney General Hal. L. Norwood has held in an official opinion that the county salary act is unconstitu. tional for more reasons, he said, than could be cited for any piece of legis- latloA he has seen in his 40 years' experience with legislative work. The principal reason, he said, is that It is, in effect, about 75 local acts, and local or special legislation is prohibited by the constitution. Won't Be Enforced His opinion means that no effort will be made to enforce the act unless some one should bring a test suit to the supreme court and it should reverse the attorney general's ruling. The county salary act, which Governor Futrell allowed to be'bome a law Without his approval, attempted to fix separately the salaries or fees or both of county officers In each of the counties. Thus, the attorney general Mid, this wnounted to a local act for cttch fcounty!"''* •**'* •"—?»•"•-• ••'••" ••• : More time was spent by the legislature on' county salary legislation than perhaps any other subject. The bill now held invalid was finally pass. ed on the eve of adjournment of the legislature. It was drafted by a house committee, and each representative fixed the salaries of officials in his county. Senate HcldTiack When the bill reacHcd the senate, ^changes were made in the schedule far virtually every cpunty. The bill then went back to the house with these amendments -too late for the house to do anything but to approve the amendments or let the bill die. ,It approved all of the amendments. During consideration of the bill in each house, leading advocates of county economy legislation freely predicted it would not stand the constitutional test and the legislature's time •would be wasted. The question was before the legislature from the beginning to the end of the session. A general county salary bill was drafted in advance of the session but opposition smothered it quickly, A house committee then was set to work on the subject and held sev. eral public hearings, resulting in the .drafting of the bill finally passed. 'Senator Ward of Leo and others drafted a bill which the senate passed, providing for a flat 20 per cent reduction in county salaries and fees, but it did not get through the house. As a result of the attorney general's ..Baling, some county economy advo- 'cates predict that many of the counties will initiate salary reduction acts in 1934, as was done last year in Union and Phillips counties. Louisiana Petition Would Oust Long Kingfish Declared "Dishonest, Corrupt and Immoral" by Accusers WASHINGTON- (/I 1 )—A group of Louisiana citizens Thursday petitioned the United States senate to oust Senator Huey P. Long. The formal petition, listing 11 charges, was presented by Vice-President Garner, to whom it had boon addressed, and was referred to the elections committee. It was referred without being read to the senate, as is customary with I al| memorials and petitions. ' /The petitioners asserted they were ready to furnish witnesses who would establish, among other things, that Senator Long is "personally dishonest, •upt and immoral," and added that continuance in office "is repulsive to uia respectable and law-abiding citizens of Louisiana and to the nation." .

Few trials; - cianyiAauilty, {>l«ss. other -cases archived, dismissed, or continued—a total of 21 penitentiary sentences. The speeding up of the criminal courts is noticeable all over the country, with tax funds far behind, county treasuries overdrawn, and the people complaining of the tax burden. It is my understanding that the Hempstead circuit court last year operated on less than its appropriation for the first time in many years, and its approriation had already been reduced. Its performance this session is in keeping with the necessity of our times. XXX At the bottom of this page you will read in "What the Legislature Did" that We rate for publication of the delinquent tax list has been reduced from 50 cents to 25. The recommendation was made by this writer in a speech before an executive meeting of the Arkansas Press association at Helena, Ark., last June. It was endorsed by the association, and submitted to the last legislature and passed. 'I'hq Arkansas Press association had no lobby in the last session, and was resolved to do its bit toward reducing the fixed charges of government. XXX Some practical joker—one of his friends—abstracted a wallet from the hip pocket of Brice Arnett, of the local police force, yesterday, and with the connivance of other friends kept it for 15 minutes. Mr. Arnett felt for tha wallet. It was gone. So was $S(i of city funds that he had collected for trash-hauling by the city's teams. Consltrnallon—recovery—and a big laugh. But I imagine Mr. Arnett did not 'laugh very hard. Plans to obtain the co-operation of business houses in reviving interest and support for the Hope' Boys Band are to be laid before the Rotary club Friday noon and the Ki- vvanis club Friday night. Official!; of the Kiwanis club agreed earlier in the week to give formal consideration to the bandboys' plans, with the expectation that civic club support would 'bo followed by co-operation from all the business houses of the city. The Hope Boys Band operated successfully' for several years under the direction of Bandmaster Fred D. Mar. tin, who, however, withdrew last year and was succeeded l5y Taylor Ashford, of Arkadelphia, an instructor in Henderson State Teachers college. The late George W. Robison was chief sponsor of the band, and headed a subscription list of approximately $1 per month from many of the local business firms. With the death of Mr. Robison no one sponsor has appeared for the band; ana Uiere is urgent need for united local support of the band is to be kept together as an organization, it is caid. Revival of the monthly subscription list is expected, in view of the fact that the bandboys furnish their time gratis on public occasions, and have been, ...ugeg./by the..'.mexchants many times.

Mayor Shane expressed belief that the ordinance was in conflict with state prohibition laws and this view also was held by Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Leon Smith, Municipal Judge C. A. Cunningham and Neil Reed, who relinquished the office of mayor Tuesday night. Deputy Prosecutor Smith indicated he wculd enforce state dry laws as long as they are effective. Several applications were made for "hcer licenses," but all were refused by Sid Craig, city clerk, who said he would not issue them in violation of state laws. In the ordinance 3.2 per cent beer was classified as non-intoxicating.
