Washbutn- THE agitation for a special session of the legislature to vote 1 beer in Arkansas, which died Tuesday* was ill-advised. -C This newspaper refused.to support It, for two reasons. In the first place, the state Is going to need * special session covering other Issues besides beer, and to have called the "beer session" singly would have Invited needless expense. And in the second place, we considered the beer agitation prejudicial In the forthcoming vote on the Eighteenth amendment repealer July 18. Arkansas was bone-dry when she ratified the Eighteenth amendment. She should be bone-dry when voting on the Eighteenth amendment's repeater. In no other way Is a fair test possible. XXX We arc going,to support the repeal- er—and we believe thousands of others will—not on any beer issue at all, tiul on the principle that enforcement responsibility belongs close to the people at home. We believe In home rule for cities, lomc rule for counties and self-determination for the states. The federal government has checked this principle back to the voters of Arkansas for ratification or rejection this July—and it Is an issue that transcends any discussion of a local option measure at this time. XXX These imposing bureaus to which wo so proudly refer as "our government" arc sometimes placed in a ghastly, pitiful light, full of jealousy and wire-pulling. Hiram Bingham former senator from ^onecticut and president of the Nu- .ionnl Aeronautic association, now charges that the Navy sent the Akron aloft in command of a man who had iad less than a year's experience with dirigibles. He was a seaman, not an aviator. But he was given an aerial command because department policies 'avor seamen over airmen. All this recalls "Billy" Mitchell's long-sugcstcd reform—stripping the Army and Navy of their aviation, and forming a separate department for airman. Airmen for dirigibles, seamen Catholic Church in Third Place in Prosperity Count Outvotes the Field Last Week in Race for Prize Money BAPTISTS~MOVE UP Second-Place Holders Gain on Leading P.-T. A. Group The Catholic church turned in 790 more votes than any other organization competing for $180 in cash offered by the Prosperity club, and jumped from sixth to third place in the count Monday. € rst Baptist church cut down the of the P.-T. A. from 26,000 last k to 19,000 this week, by bringing in the next highest amount of votes during the past week. Three organizations which had entered were dropped from the competition for having polled no votes, or only a very few. Organizations which hope to win one of the big prizes are asked to call regular meetings to work out plans to improve their position. With four more weeks to go, no organization has a cinch to secure the first prize of $100. 'Second prize is $30, and .the remaining $50 is to be equally divided among the organizations slaying in the race. The New Totals The new count follows: Hope.P.-T. A. 69,215 First Baptist Church .:' ...50,370 Catholic Church 30,575 Cemetery Association ; .20,130 Hinton Sunday School. ..............16,360 Julia; Chester Hospital Methodist Church i. ..........12,875 '" Washington P.-T. A. Christian Church 3,196 The Cemetery Association, Hinton Sunday School, and the. First Methodist church each dropped one place from lost week's count. Should Vote Early Since more votes have been issued by club members than have been cast, it is presumed that some organization been withholding votes. It is sug- ^ cd that they encourage the mem- b*ors of their own organization by casting these votes in order to show them how easy it will be to win first prize if all the members of any one organization help the leaders to win by asking for votes with all purchases. Many merchants forget to give votes, and will be only too glad to supply them when interested parties ask for them. Those interested in the success of their own organization in winning first prize arc asked to watch for special offers to bo made by club members from time to time. There will be offers which could enable lagging organizations to catch up and surpass others, through very little effort. Vote count will be announced one week from this dale, and each week thereafter. There arc four more weeks of the conlesl—it is still anyone's race at this time. However, the organization which works for the $100 as a unit is most certain to win it. Associated Press Bans Radio News Newspapers May Give Stations Only Merest Bulletins of Dispatches NEW YORK— (K>)— The membership of the Associated Press in annual session Monday adopted a resolution providing that no news distributed by the Associated Press be given any radio chain, and outlining its position on broadcasting by member papers. The resolution stipulated that no member newspaper of the Associated Press shall be allowed to broadcast either its local or Associated . Press news other than brief bulletins. The membership further empowered the Associated Press Board of Directors to promulgate rules covering such member broadcasting and to fix a schedule of assessments to be paid by member papers doing such broadcast- I he resolution was written by James Stahlman, publisher of the Nashville, (Tenn.) Banner and president of the Southern Newspaper Publishers' Association. Publishers from all parts of the nation were told during the annual meeting by Kent Cooper, general manager of the Associated Press, how the world's largest cp-operative, the news gathering organization he manager, continued its normal functions through the financial distress, at the same time reducing annual expenses more than $3,000,000. for battleships—tho United States is about ready to listen to General Mitchell's advice. ... , X X X Unpaid, teachers stormed • Into Chi••—'- 'Sa^-t— Monday looking for npaid -policemen* toYthem by the gates. Chicago's taxpayers haven't been paying, and so the banks have stopped lending on tax anticipation certificates. Who's to blame? Not the teachers, nor the policemen, nor the bankers— aut all the taxpayers collectively. They need to pay as much attention to affairs of government as they pay to earning a living. Then government costs will come down, and taxes, reduced, will be paid. Office-holders should be content. A big salary, unpaid, isn't as good as a smaller one—in cash. Guardsmen Enjoin License Payment Win First Round of Test Case Before Chancelor Dodge LITTLE ROCK. — (IP) — Chancellor Dodge Tuesday enjoined State Revenue Commissioner Watson from collecting automobile license fees from active members of the Arkansas National Guard. In a test case instituted by members of the National Guard, Chancellor Dodge held that the automobile license reduction act of 1933 did not repeal the 1929 act which execpted active National Guardsmen from automobile liense payments. Attorney General Norwood had held the former act was repealed. The chancelor granted a permanent injunction. An appeal to the supreme court is expected to be. taken by the state revenue commissioner.

France Enters Parley , WASHINGTON —Following virtual conclusion of negotiations .with the British delegation, President Roosevelt Monday night began conversations AVith former Premier Edouard Herriot of France' and the French ec- onomiQ advisers on the program of th« ^pprcaehinK-world sconomic ,con; ference. The president also received Richard B. Bennett, prime minister of Canada, with whom Mr. Roosevelt will discuss reciprocal tariffs when Mr. Bennett becomes a White House guest Wednesday. The negotiations with Prime Minister Hamsay MacDonald of Great Bri. tain and the British economic experts were concluded for the time being with no definite decision arrived at but with a mutual exchange of assurances that each party to the conversations had achieved a helpful understanding of the other's point of view which augured well for the economic conference scheduled to be held in London about June 15 or July 1. Communique Issued After the final session, which was attended by President Roosevelt and the American experts and by Prime Minister MacDonald and the British experts, the White House issued the following statement on behalf of the president and the prime minister. "The prime minister, the president, the British ambassador and the secretary "f state met Monday afternoon with the officials and experts participating in the discussions of the past few days. They reviewed the substance of their discussions with deep satisfaction. "Among the subjects considered in these discussions were the world price level, central bank policies, monetary standards, exchange restrictions, improvement of the status of silver and in addition, a number of world prbo- lems relating to trade and particularly the limitation of trade restrictions. "Agreement with reference to any of these subjects has been reserved for the world monetary and economic conference itself. It was never the purpose of the present discussions to conclude definite agreements. They were designed to explore and to map out the territory to be covered. This purpose has been admirably served by the conversations which have taken place." It was said that the American and British experts might hold another meeting Tuesday to complete some phases of the technical discussions but that there is no necessity of further conversations between Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. MacDonald. They have bared their positions to each other, which wus the most they expected to accomplish at. this time. MacDonald May Leave Tuesday In view of the conclusion of the Anglo-American negotiations earlier than had been anticipated, Mr. MacDonald is considering departure from Washington Tuesday instead of Wednesday. It is understood that the Anglo- American negotiations were rushed to a conclusion in order that they might not overlap unduly the Franco-American discussions which began Monday night. Despite Mr. Roosevelt's original intention to treat with envoys of the powers individually and never collectively, it began to look as if a joint discussions with Mr. MacDonald and M. Herriot could be avoided by Tuesday night after the dinner in honor of the distinguished visitors. Mr. MacDonald and M. Herriot came together for the first time at the White House at 6 Monday night. They had Tennessee Valley Bill Passes House Debate in Senate Holds Up Inflation One More Day ' WASHINGTON.— (O>) —The House, swept through the president's Tennessee Valley program Tuesday, as the senate turned again to debate 'the currency inflation bill. After disposing of the Tennessee Valley measure by a vote of 306 to 91, the house took up the St. Lawrence waterway power proposal. Senator Reed, Pennsylvania Republican, led the opposition to the inflation measure, where debate was in prospect for another day before a vote would be reached. Unemployed Aid Advance* * WASHINGTON.-(/P)-The administration bill setting up V4 billion dollars as a fund fo» .direct unemployment relief neared congressional approval Tuesday when the senate banking committee approved the measure virtualy as passed by the house. Akron Commanded by Sea Captains Chief Officer Hadn't Year's Experience in Air, Says Critic WASHINGTON— (/P)— Hiram Bingham, president of'the National Aeronautic association and a former senator from Connecticut, in an editorial Monday blamed the Akron disaster upon the unfair and unsympathetic attitude toward.naval .aviation by the "sea-going admirals." The editorial appearing in the current issue of the National Aeronautic Magazine attributed the catastrophe with its loss of 73 lives to errors in judgment on the part of the ship's commander and to the navy for placing the ship under "a gallant officer who had not had a single year's ex. perience in command of any rigid dirigible." "It was not fair to him. It was nol fair to the Akron. "To win promotion, an experienced airship pilot must go to sea. "The navy would not dream of permitting an air pilot of 20 years' experience to direct the operations ol a modern cruiser. And yet the navy is willing to entrust the operations ol aircraft to a seagoing admiral who never was in command of an airship and who never flew alone in an airplane." Bingham'said Rear Admiral William A. Moffett, former navy chief o aeronautics who lost hU life on the Akron, was so hampered by naval policy that he could issue no orders regarding aircraft operation or the personnel that would command aircraft.

Superior Judge Louis H.

Mooney to Stay In "Pen" The court said Mooney's presence would not be necessary while at. torneys argued the question of bringing in "foreign" witnesses—those living outside San Francisco—and other technical matters, but refused to say what the later might be. He afeo declined to say when Mooney might be taken from the prison for the trial. A panel of 40 veniremen was instructed to appear Thursday.

Repentance, Faith Topics of Revival Evangelist Crimm Brings Strong Message to Tabernacle Audience Using for his subject, "Repentance and Faith," Evangelist B. B. Crimm brought a soul-stirring'message o" old fashioned .religion to his audience at the tabernacle, Monday night. "Repentance - and faith come to me as twin graces; perhaps there may be a fraction of diference, but it doesn't make; much diference which comes first. Before a soul , can be saved repentance and faith must take place in the life. "I know this is old-fashioned preaching and that nowadays they don't preach this old doctrine, the bed-rock of our salvation, but the Bible hasn't changed. I still believe in preaching it, and if the time ever comes that I don't believe U then I'll get out of the pulpit. , "God can't save anyone in their sins. Repentance and faith mean that the immoral mati will quit his immorality, that the liar will quit lying, the crooked man his crooked life—"the Sabbath breaker, the gambler, the drinker, all must quit their evil practices if they ever expect to be saved." The Rev. Mr. Crimm will use as his subject Tuesday night, "Scrappin 1 the Devil." Arkansas Suffers Largest Car Loss U, S.
