Washburn/Confiscation of property in Russia is "Bolshevism," and it's v* Alarming. But in America we call it "Inflation"—and take it as a matter of course. Illustrating that what you do isn't always as important as how you do it. Russia, with her peasant's inferiority complex, grabs property to "penalize" the rich, but not helping her citizens constructively. The American congress is preparing to grab 200 billions frorfi the creditor class and give it to the debtors in the form of an expanded currency. Tills is revolution—as it comes to a capitalistic state. And mo^t of us will wake Up with a shock when we realize that the objectives for which the blind Russian state is pitifully striving, and upon which we sophisticatedly look down, arc objectives that are manifest not only in our own nation, but in all nations, in all times. The earth exists for its people. And when economic pressure reaches a certain point, a free people redistribute opportunities so that the majority can live decently once more. The leaders consent because they figure to make it back again.

Texarkana Claims IflO-Barrel Well I. E. H, Beck Test said to Be Completed in Eastern Miller Co. Texarkana.— T h e Duluth-Arkansas Oil Company's No. 1 I. E. H. Beck test well in 34-15-26, Miller county, 15 miles st of here, was brought in late Sat- day as a 100-barrel producer, ac_ rding to reports received here. "The well was completed after plugging back 18 feet of oil and found at a depth of 2,770 feet after an unsuccessful attempt had been made to find oil at a greater depth. Gtl flowing into the hole made tests of lower formations difficult. Work on the well was begun last fall, but there have been several periods of delay. Coring in the Tokio or upper Woodbine sand also was reported late Saturday in the Roy McCowan No. 1 test.

XXX , Frenchmen arriving in Washington for Roosevelt's trade conference profess anger because the British got there first and went into conference with the president before their European allies had landed. The French say England has "deserted" Europe. Americans, recalling how England and France presented a solid front to Mr. Hitler's new German state, will wonder whether this is a real quarrel, or just a bit of stage business to put Mr. Roosevelt off guard. The chances are it is real. The English play the game of world politics alone. They have an empire as great as America's to look after— and far harder to manage. It is vitally important to them to see world trade restored again. They move alone —otherwise they wouldn't have paid their debt installment last December. France sought to persuade the British to default, but failed—just as she has failed in presenting a united European front at Washington today. Roosevelt is talking to them one at a time, Jurt a» hejjaid he would. I have just found out why the world often refers humorously to newspapers as • great liars and exaggerators. The world is a great fisherman.. All fisherman are great liars—and they expect to receive as much as they give', wliich makes them dubious •when reading a piece in the paper. But I'll give them something to think about. I'll give them a story told by a fisherman, and print it in this paper. It was told me by Robert Wilson, who had it from a notorious fisherman from Shreveport. In the fishing lakes about Shreveport it seems the boys have discovered that the bait the baas like best is goldfish. But goldfish are expensive. S»o-o-o-o they take a bottle of mercurochrome and paint their 'shiners. XXX Should you see a Hope fisherman headed for the lake with a bottle, pay him no attention—he's just going to paint the lake red.

Reed Is Acquitted on 2 Counts, Fined Third,jor Wreck >50 Assessed Against Driver in Killing of Alpha Nix WRECK STORY TOLD Dity Scores on Reckless Driving, But Other Charges Dropped Porter Reed, young Hope mechanic, Monday was exonerated in municipal court on wo charges, found guilty on i third, and a fourth was waived, at a pyobe of the fatal automobile accident in which Alpha Nix, 38 was killed on a downtown street a week ago. After three prosecuting witnesses had testified Judge W. K. Lemley handed down n decision of not guilty of driving while intoxicated, and failing to stop after an accident. However, Reed was fined $50 and cost for reckless driving. Counsel for Reed filed an appeal to circuit court. The fourth charge, involuntary manslaughter, was waived. John Turner, night officer and an eye witness to the accident, was the first to testify. He told of walking up Main street toward the depot and seeing the automobile as 'it sped east on Division street to the New Capital hotel. Turner said the car was traveling at an estimated speed of 30 to 4C miles an hour, striking two stop buttons as it passed over Main street. Reed Is Arrested Turner said when he saw the car it was parked near Oliver's Lunch Room, a block froiji 'the scene of the mishap, but told of Reed appearing at the scene about 3ft minutes later. c ^%aiP\iM"TuHier said he'did-not know Reed was'the driver, but testified he believed Reed had been drinking. ' About two hours later Turner said he went to Reed's home and arrested him for questioning. At Reed's home Turner said Reed denied being in the car, but inquired about Nix's injuries. Turner said he appeared to be intoxicated. Jack Bush, night clerk at the Capi tal hotel, was the second witness for the prosecution. Bush said he did not see the accident and failed to sec Reed that night. Bush told of hearing the car strike two stop buttons and finding Nix lying on the pavement. Dewey Hcndrix was the third to testify. He told of appearing shortly after the accident occurred. Hendrix said Reed did not appear to be drunk. No Proof Submitted Luke Monroe, counsel for Reed, told the court that no proof had been presented that his client was the driver of the car, and there was no evidence that Reed was driving while intoxicated, "Before the defendant can be convicted of these two charges the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Reed is guilty, and no proof has been presented that he is guilty" Monroe said. Judge Lemley reminded the court room that Reed pleaded guilty last Monday to reckless driving. The other charges were continued at that time. Judge Lemley said no proof had been presented that Reed was intoxicated while driving and no evidence was shown that he refused to stop after injuring Sam Kennedy, night officer, who sustained a broken left leg. Rccd did not take the witness stand. When asked by Judge Lemley if he had ever been in court before on any charge, Reed replied in the negative. Counsel for Reed asked for an appeal when Judge Lemley fined him $50 and coats on the reckless driving charge. Other Cases Other cases heard Monday were against W. D. Sipes, Henry Nelson and Albert Johnson, all charged with drunkncss. Each entered a plea of guilty and were fined $10 and costs in each case. A state case against Glen Dismuke, charged with unlawful overdraft, was dismissed on motion of Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Vesey, when Dismuke agreed to pay the cost. Forney (Pete) Elder waived preliminary examination on two charges of selling intoxicating liquor and was bound over'to the grand jury on $300 bond in each case. Elwood Hatch, charged with assault with intent to kill, waived examination and was bound over to the grand jury under $300 bond. Hatch is charged with shooting at Glen Burns. Mose Powell, Oscar Ptowell and Erwin Burns were recognized as witnesses and ordered to appear before the next grand jury. A state case against Glen Burns on two separate charges of assault and battery and one for carrying a pistol, was continued uiivu next Monday. Other cases continued until Monday are against Erwin Burns, charged with assault and battery; . Elwood Hatch, carrying a pistol; Oral Ward, assault and battery; and Orville Stanley, .charged with carrying a pistol. Today's Statgraph UNFILLED TONNAGE '!nw%f.» JULY OCT.

' The supreme court .upheld a PUlaskl chancery judgment in favor of W. W. Keaton for $6,700 against the state.

Saved From Death Arizona Trunk Murderess Held Insane by Jury of 12 Men FLORENCE, Ari.-yp)—Winnie Ruth Judd's sentence to death on the gallows for the murder of Agnes Anne LcRoi was suspended automatically Saturday night by the verdict of a Superior Court jury of 12 men finding her insane. • ' She had been scheduled to be hanged for the slaying of Agnes LeRoi next Friday, April 28. Under,, the verdict, she will be committed to any asylum for the mentally incompetent. Mrs. LcRoi and Hedvig Samuelson were slain the night of^ October 16, 1931, in Phoenix, and their bodies, Miss Samuclson's dismembered, shipped to Los Angeles in trunks. Mrs. Judd v/as arrested there a week later and returned to Phoenix to be tried, convicted and sentenced to death for murder of Mrs. LeRoi. She was not tried for slaying of Miss Samuelson. Her appeal to the Supreme Court was denied, and a month ago the Ari. zona Board of Pardons and Paroles denied her appeal for commutation of sentence. Only the fact that Arizona law forbids execution of the death penalty on a person who has become insane while awaiting death, gave her another opportunity for life through the courts of Arizona. Hot Springs Given New C-G. Camp Becomes One of Conservation Points in National Park Forests WASHINGTON.-^)—Sites for 50 Conservation Work Corps camps, approved by President Roosevelt, were announced Sunday by Robert Fechner, director of the conservation-employment program. Ten thousand of the 250,000 unemployed men to be recruited under the president's forestation program, he said, pill have an opportunity to spend the summer among the scenic national parks and monuments. They will be scattered through 14 states—Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Montana, Tennessee, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming. The locations of some of the national park camps include: Arkansas—Hot 'Springs.

Great Britain and U. S. A* Agreed on New Coinage Plan MacDonald and Roosevelt Reach Decision for. Arms Reduction FRANCE~Ts MIFFED Herriot Arrives and Finds MacDonald Too Close to President WASHINGTON — (/P) —Optimism pervaded the Anglo- American trade and arms conversations anew Monday as the French entry into negotiations approached. ., For the fourth time President Roosevelt and Prime Minister MacDonald of Great Britain talked things over, 'calling their' chief advisors to their side during the afternoon. ' / An understanding between Great Britain and the' United States on a revised gold standard monetary basis appeared in sight, together with a very definite proposal for an armament reduction. ,, ^Arranging-to- see the French emissary Herriot late Monday President Roosevelt appeared to: be devoting his principal attention during the morning's work to armaments. /Prime Minister Bennett of Canada will his formal call at the White House at 5:15 Monday 'afternoon. U. S., England Agree WASHINGTON.—England and the United States have reached a'tenta- tive agreement, it appeared Sunday riight, on two major phases of the world economy program—disarmament and stabilization of money. While this indication of substantial progress was reported, Edouard t Her- hrlot,- ifeteVah ofr ^br^pitiUtlc^lJaeaij .imposing; delegation' of French'~ eco- s nomists into town,""and accompanying them was a cry that the war debts must be revised, or cancelled before the other great'problems of the world depression can be tackled. It appeared that M. Herriot, for all his haste in getting to America before Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald left, may have been out-foxed this time, for with' the British and the American governments well on the way to at least a partial accord, it may be difficult for France to stand in direct opposition. There was some suggestion that the wily Herriot was a bit miffed because when he arrived in Washington Sunday non, having raced at the fastest possible speed all the way from Paris, he 'found that President Roosevelt and Prime Minister MacDonald had taken themselves off on a boat cruise down the Potomac. M. Herriot in his own public interview did not show any irritation, but some of his colleagues were resentful not only of the fact that Roosevelt and MacDonald had gone off together today, but that M. Herriot will not even see the presidentl until Monday afternoon, then only for a formal tea and to pay his respects and that he will not hold a real conference with Mr. Roosevelt until after dinner Monday. Arms Discussed During their pleasant sojourn on the American yacht Sequoia, the president and Mr. MacDonald went thoroughly into the disarmament question and although details of their common understanding were not revealed, it was announced officially in a joint com- munique that prospects for the success of both the disarmament conference and the world economic conference were "considerably advanced." While their two chiefs were thus engaged on the Sequoia, British and American experts in a series of conferences at the State Department came to an agreement of principle on the monetary issue. 'Sunday night, working swiftly—and it seemed these Sabbath labors obviously were aimed at reaching an accord which could be announced publicly before M. Herriot had even a word with the president—the experts met.at the White House with Roosevelt and MacDonald and reported their findings. The announcement of any agreement naturally was to be left with the two heads of government, but it was reported that the experts were in accord on the principle that England and the United States should support a return to the gold standard on a revised basis with the relative value of the pound and the dollar definitely fixed, but with a lesser content of gold behind the currency of each. The experts, it was said, agreed that there should be no damaging competition in seeking to raise or lower the relative values of the pound and the dollar. Both groups, it was said, realized that the old gold content of their'currencies was too high, and that its lowering would have a beneficial effect on international commerce. Ihe question of fixing the value of the pound and the dollar was not determined, according to the reports. (Continued on page three) He's "Mad" Edouard Herriot French Angry at British Desertion Harriot's Attaches Think England Has Gone Over to U. S. Side WASHINGTON — Although the American and British negotiators Sunday were reported to have, agreed in principle on world stabilization with fixing of new values 'for' the 'dollar and pound: sterling, this does not necessarily mean a return to the gold standard by either.country. ' Several proposals for .a combina- tion'gold, arid'silver currency are under consideration and in this connection ..the. presence in .Washington of J; ; N; Darling,: a 'director ot the Midland bank, one of Britain's "big'five" is significant.' Darling, who has a habit of'turn- ing up wherever currency is discussed, is an advocate of a new bimetallic standard in the^ shape of an alloy of gold and silver in definite proportions which shall be accepted by interna. tional agreement as the basis of all currencies. M. Herriot of France, who on his arrival Sunday professed to be overflowing with hope and good will, cancelled his engagement to dine at the French embassy Sunday night and dined quietly at the Mayflower hotel with' some of his entourage. While the chief of the French delegation preserves the most correct attitude, some of those with him are more outspoken and declare that in view of what has happened since they left France they might as well turn around and go home. They feel that the dice have been loaded against France and they are in .anything but an accommodating mood. They are particularly bitter against the British, who they thing have abandoned the unied European front and lined up with the world's great creditor against the world's debtors. The French are specially insistent on the importance of war debts, which the British are now disposed to treat as of minor importance. All these matters are likely to be raised when M. Herriot meets the president Monday. Ex-Banker Slays Self Facing Trial W. E. Stansbury Commits Suicide Day of Trial at Memphis MEMPHIS, Tenn.-(tf>)-AV. E. Stansbury, former bank president, was found dead of a pistol shot Monday, just a few hours before he was scheduled to go on trial for the first of a series of fraud charges. Attorney General McLain said Charles Bryan, of defense counsel, telephoned that Stansbury had shot himself, and a sister of the financier said a short time later he,r brother had died. 3,000 Chinese Are Killed in Battle Japanese Report Slaughter in Four-Day Battle Near Peiping TOKYO, Japan.—(£>)—Japanese reports Monday estimated that nearly 3,000 Chinese have been killed in four days of a major battle south of Kup- eikow on the Great Wall, The Japanese lines .were reported pushed forward Monday to within iO miles of Feiping (Peking).

With grains, cotton, rubber, sugar, hides, silver and cocoa advancing as the dollar resumed': its decline' against foreign monies, stocks maintained a furious pace, and the turnover approximated 5 million, shares. The market went through frequent reactionary periods, but fresh buying was provided in large volume and even in late trading the trend was irregularly higher. The oil, rail, amusement and utility shares had their turns as operators for the advance 'sought to bring •forward fresh faA&crs.* &j&fy!Sy*ffo'#te'<!&py'* — ^^* r ^ The rise, however, was far from perpendicular, and toward the close a few favorites showed moderate net losses. ' American Telephone, up more than three points, slid back more than one point from the top. Oils were very active' for a time, but gains of around a point in Socqny-Vacuum and Standard of New Jersey were reduced to fractions. General Motors and Chrysler gained about a point; Electric Autolite, Allied Chemical, Union Carbide, Continental Can, and United . Aircraft, were up about 2 points; U. S.

Senator Roy Milum of Harrison, after a conference with Governor Futrell, said he had urged the governor to call the legislature into extraordinary session to enact a sales tax law, and Rep. Eugene Hampton of Lee county said he was preparing the draft of a sales tax bill he would introduce in the event of'a special session. Rep. E. B. Cone of Chicot county has gone on record in favor of a special for both beer and sales tax legislation. The regular session this year did not consider a sales tax bill. Governor Futrell had turned thumbs down on any new tax or increase in any existing tax. Senator Milum that his conference with the governor embraced the whole tax question and the probable large deficiency in property tax collections. The governor, he said, ex. pressed to him virtually the same views he made public two weeks ogo on the question of changing the present laws to enforce the collection of property taxes- Mr. Hampton said he was drafting a sales tax bill patterened after the Mississippi and Illinois laws. He said it would impose levies on all commodities, including food and clothing. Both Mr. Cc^ne and Mr. Hampton said the sales tax, f enacted, should be said the sales tax, if enacted, should be both advocated the legalization of beer to further bolster revenues.
