Zoo Thriller at Saenger Tuesday Ruggles, Atwill, Burke, Starred in "Murders in the Zoo" "Murders in the Zoo,' mystery melodrama conies Tuesday with a bargain matinee at 2:30 and again Wednesday night to the Saenger theater. Charlie Ruggles, Lionel Atwill Kathleen Burke, the "Panther Woman," Randolph Scott, John Lodge anc Gail Patrick play leading roles in the film, which centers around a sadistic madman who uses savage beasts, instead of the conventional murder weapons, to carry out his vick plans. Atwill is the madman—an eminenl zoologist who is insanely jealous of his wife. Two men who dare to look at her with more than casual interest die under strange and brutal circumstances. The second such murder takes place during a banquet being given at a zoo to open a fund-raising campaign. Miss Burke, the wife, is convinced that her husband is responsible for it. 'She rushes to officials to voice her suspicions, but before she can accomplish the task she is dead. »T < • ; ' i m STA« Ai«) DAiLv OUlTBOARDtNG HOUSE N^^^d^PfefedNSf cA<sfe' write t^oop- -~-t £"i <;, H/W£ A K»0tlON 10 STICK NOU ) C 11 \jf> IN rr ANt> Ffcfcfc vou •PUTTY PA£fc-~~VOU PUT TMAT STRING Br AHERN OUT OUR WAV BOOTS AND HER BUDDIES B u d i e s CO -TV4'M MA WE.

Waahburn- W E5, the people of 1933, must turn back to the generation of Seventeen years ago to learn how to live. That's what the tax assessment figures for Arkansas tell us today. The value of all property in this state for tax purposes is 471'/a million dollars—the lowest since 1916. The revenues of all private business have declined to the level of 1920 and 1915, and some to the low level of Hempstead's Tax Assessment Falls 12 PerCent in'32 County Valuation Drops From 7«/z to 6</ 2 Million Dollars BOTTOM TQR STATE 471</2 Millions, Decline of 15 Per Cent, Lowest Since Year 1916 . LITTLE ROCK—The assessed valuation of all real and «rsonal property in Arkansas r 1932, on which taxes now are payable, decreased $83,365,118 from the 1931 assessment, compilation of final abstracts filed with the Arkan„ sas Corporation Commission by county clerks revealed Monday. The 1932 total of $471,469,886 is the lowest valuation since 1916 and represents a decrease of 15.02 per cent from the 1931 valuation of $554,834,984. Hcmpstcad off 12% The decline in Hempstead county's valuation was from $7,427,189 in 1931 to 16,560,624 in 1932, a drop of slightly less than 12 per cent, Nevada's total assessment dropped from 11,280,482 to $3,479,964, a decline of almost 19 per cent. ' J LaFayetle county clr&ppcd from $4,/ 322,180 to $3,593,215, or almost 17 per >f;cent. *' Howard county showed a decline from Jl.098,092 to $3,507,870, or approx- : ~ Innately UV4 per cent. The 8tjitdjYBlua ( tion for 1932 was di- Rcal estate, $330,815,853, a decrease of $57,346,400, or 14.77 per cent from 'the 1931 real estate assessment of $388,. 162,253. Personal-property, $140,654,613, a decrease of $26,017,718 or 15.61 per cent from the 1931' personal assessment of $166,671,731. . Most of the decrease was on privately owned property assessed by county assessors, the decrease on public util- ^^Wx property assessed by the old Tax ^Commission being only about 4 per cent. Utility valuations were incorporated in assessments of the various counties after being fixed by the Tax Commission. Officials Surprised The low valuations shown in the final abstracts of county clerks was a surprise to tax officials, since abstracts filed by assessors last fall gave the total assessed valuation for the state as $501,367,723, County equalization boards and county judges are authorized by low to make adjustments of valuations after assessors complete their work, but it was said that not all the approximately $30,0011,001) difference in asses- sora' abstracts and clerks' abstracts could be attributed to reductions made by equalization boards or county judges'. E. E. Aashbaugn, tax clerk for the commission, said he believed that a greater part of the decrease resulted from elimination from the assessment lists of many thousands of acres of de- >Jinquenl land after the assessors com- 'jjfcfeted their work. ''-"With « ( I''°P ' n valuation to a prewar basis, the state's income from the 8.7 mills general property tax this year would exceed $4,000,000, if all taxes could be collected, but state arid county officials generally believe delin. quencies will be greater than in many yean:. Some county collectors have estimated that collections will range from 25 to 50 per cent, but even a 25 per cent delinquency on the greatly reduced valuation would seriouslj cripple the public schools, higher educational institutions, the state pen- tion and charity funds and county and municipal governments generally. (Continued on page three) 1910. The burden of taxation had to be made to fit the new shoulders of small business—and so the assessments were reduced. Taxpayers of Hcmpstcad arc cither more prosperous, on) more liberal, than the average. Our county assessment fell from 7Mt to 6!£ millions, a decline of only 12 per cent .against 15 per cent for the whole state. XXX Don't miss reading the series on the "House of Morgan," the second installment of which appears on today's front page. Today's story tells us how Joseph Morgan, grctit-grandfathcr of the present J. P. Morgan, got his start. Foreseeing the rise of railroads, he sold his stage-coach lines ond organized the Aetna Fire Insurance company soon after 1800. Panic-fires swept the nation. Some Aetna stockholders were afraid. Morgan bought them out. He made Aetna pay off when most insurance companies didn't. He made Aetna great—and Aetna made the name of Morgan great. There arc black chapters, too. You'll read about them before Saturday night, when the "House of Morgan" scries closes. XXX Victor Emmanuel the Third is back. I beg pardon of "A Reader." He advised me March 31 that Victor Three llimcs would be back. But Victor having been seized with a fit March 27, and not heard from since, I rather had. my doubts that "Reader" knew a thing or two about cats. But this morning—after an absence of 22 days—Victor Emmanuel shoved his neck in the composing room doorway and greeted the boys again. Interviewed by the patent medicine men, Victor said all he was or hoped to be he-owed to the fit-curing powers o/-cjttnlp- TjyitJii^wafi 22 days getting ' ' • TA'LV-W'V^*, M, \- • ' ••' , • VO'"*** •• ~cV.1»< fv 'Sl over Tt,^wasH!r5tlue ot t|ie : -scy^rlty,ojf; the fit, or the weakness of the'catnip, he declared; but simply the 'strain ot hanging 'around a wqws'panc.r : shop; «' But Victor hasn't' yet regained his old-time cordiality.

Pliny Deckert Is Cleared in Holdup Asquitted in Springhill (La.) Bank Robbery, Chapman Convicted MINDEN. La.-(/P)-W. P. Deckert, 32, was acquitted by a jury here Monday of connection with the robbery of the Commercial Bank and Trust company of Springhill, La., last June when J2700 was stolen. Deckert was kept in custody after the verdict was returned, to face federal charges of passing counterfeit bills at Sulphur Springs, Texas, and charges of complicity in a $26,000 bank robbery at Tupelo, Miss., last January. J. E. Hodge, bank cashier, said he would not positively identify the defendant, as he did not get a good look at the robbers during the bank raid. Deckert was recently declared sane in a special hearing before Judge J. F. Mclnnis. His trial was delayed because of his escape last September from a Shreveport jail. He later was captured in Texas. Charley Chapman, recently wound- e dand captured in Fort Smith, Ark., was among tRose convicted last year of participation in the Springhill robbery. Chapman also escaped from the Shreveport jail while awaiting sentence.

Monday the senate committee on constitutional amendments, made only minor changes in the wording of the house resolution. It retained the provision under which political subdivisions of the state will revert to their wet or dry status on the eve of statewide prohibition. The status as it existed then can be changed by local option elections. Nebraska to Vote LINCOLN, Neb. — (/P) — Nebraska moved towards its first vote since 1920 on prohibition Monday when the House of Representatives, 77 to 13, passed Gov. C. W. Bryan's bill for a convention to consider repeal of the Eighteenth amendment. The bill calls for electing non-partisan delegates in 100 legislative districts in the 1934 primary and general elections. The convention would be held in Lincoln the first Tuesday in December, 1934. The .measure now goes to the Senate where the governor's friends expect prompt action and no amendments. In 1920 Nebraskans voted on their ttate constitution which contains a prohibition provision. Founder Landed in ^Wilderness; Nerve Produced Fortune Mile* Morgan Arrived in ! Boston in 1636, First of Clan COUP IN INSURANCE Joseph Morgan, 1800, Laid Foundation of House With Insurance Co. Editor's Note: This is second of six stories on the House of Morgan, soon to be the subject of , senatorial inquiry. BY WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Writer NEW YORK — TherV is something solid and permanent about the House of Morgan, something like the -old fudal dukedoms of the Middle Ages. Its descent from father to son, its survivalof panic and depression 'dawn .through the years of the cpun- ijtey's. historyj> make it. tiniqiue. ** y fc(ore (ttari, 1W years -ago? ihtf fbror bears of "the Morgan clan was-a wealthy man, and it is nearly 300 years ago that the founders of the family came to America.. Miles Morgan Arrived in Boston in 1636, .', acqompanited by his brothers John and James, to seek fortune in the new world. Miles immediately set forth as a member of'an expedition to found a settlement ,in the wilderness, and was able to claim his share of'land purchased from the Indians at Springfield, Mass.) by suppressing the fact that he was a • minor when lots were drawn for land. That was the first- Morgan business deal in America. Miles fought the Indians, and a descendant of his fought in the Revolution as a captain. Aetna Fire Insurance But the story of the House of Morgan really begins with Joseph Morgan, who about 1800, turned from farming' to become an inn-keeper. He did well, and, moving to Hartford, became the proprietor of stage-coach lines. 'Seeing the coming of, the railroads, Joseph sold out just in time, and laid the foundation of the Morgan -. fortunes. He was one of a number of business men whose notes were the sole capital (no cash) of, the Aetna Fire Insurance Co. Suddenly as disastrous fire swept New Vork. Nervous note-makers, who were also the stockholders, felt they could never pay off the claims. But Joseph Morgan was not nervous. He saw that if Aetna did contrive to pay its claims quickly, it would get most of the future business. So he formed a pool, bought their stock from the nervous ones, paid the claims, and cashed in on his courage. He made of this what was then a glittering for- lune-$150,000. From Store to Bank But greater in his eyes than this fabulous success was his son, Junius Spencer Morgan. The boy should be given a head-start in the world, Joseph vowed. So at 23, a partnership was purchased for Junius in the Hartford dry-goods firm of Howe, Mather and Co., for $50,000. - -. ; From a,!!' ojl portrait.by Daniel Uwitlnffton.

She took off her hat and swung it from her fingers, letting the May breeze ruffle the little bronze curls around her forehead. Spring again! It was glorious after the long winter. Spring—and Dan Cardigan's irregular, tormenting wooing would begin once more. Monnie's wayward heart thumped uncomfortably. Dan had been in Cleveland all ifwinter. Now he would be back—was, in fact, on his way at the moment. Monnie tried not to dance at the thought. Dan with his handsome, sullen face, those longlashed blue eyed whose glance had the power to make her smile or weep, would he staring down at her in a few hours. "Wkere you gpin', Miss O'Dare?" The mocking voice of kaijra, Grayling challenged her. kai^a, was 50,' prim, an acid spinster. Monnie flushed. She felt that Miss Laura could see straight through her, knew all her thoughts. She said demurely, "Just hurrying home to supper. Lovely even- int, isn't it?" "I thought," said Miss Laura, "that you must be goin' to a fire. You nearly knocked me down." "I'm so sorry," murmured Monnie. "I—I was thinking of something else, I guess." v She hurried along, her cheeks like peonies. Two more blocks—then home. She hoped Mom's headache would be better. And that Kay would be in a better temper. And that Mark would have passed his exams. And that Bill would be home. Poor Bill! He worked sp hard.
