A detailed scheme for thus connecting the highway network of France and French Switzerland with the Italian automobile trade has been submitted to the French and Italian governments and it is understood here both have approved of it in principle. The tunnel would run from Cham- onix to Courmayeur. Though the task sounds formidable, it would be easier than any of the big jobs already done in the Alps. It would be only eight miles long—the shortest of Alpine tunnels. Geological studies have proved favorable and financial ones show the tunnel would pay for itself with a reasonable tolL The tunnel would shorten considerably the Paris-Rome highway, especially for winter travel,* and place Geneva on it. It would bring Geneva easily within two hours of Italy by moderate driving. Generally it would greatly .facilitate motor touring in the Alps, where it is already highly developed. Mrs. J. R. Floyd.

Friday Morning TO BE 3 PROGRAMS A STATE ruling published today that there will be no passes issued for toll bridges, will meet with general approval front the public. Even the employes of the State -^Revenue Department will have to pay toll at the very bridges they/are checking lip on. But they will turn in their payments on expense-accounts, and be reimbursed that Way. You readily get the idea. When passes are Issued by a public-owned itllity, the pass privilege is bound to be abused, costing the taxpayers thousands of dolars, But no official is going to reimburse you in actual cash unless the law directs him to. , XXX In this connection I would like to make a friendly observation on the Hope Water & Light Plant. It is generally understood tfiat the municipal plant has had to "carry" nany families during the depression. The plant struggles along under this }urdcn as best it can. After all, the people own the plant, and can do what .hey want with it—but certain good suslness practices should be enforced, and the plant management should be given authority to sec that they are enforced. I make this suggestion, on the eve of the city's annual audit: That the plant be instructed to collect its monthly bills from everyone, but that persons definitely known to be unable to pay at this time be permitted to petition the water and light committee of the city council, which in worthy cases • would issue credit memorandums that would take up the bills. XXX This would do two things: First—It would give the city a close check on all "free" service. Second—H would give the municipal plant credit for its real gross volume, and charge the "free" service to charitable expense, where it should be charged. The burden of determining who is entitled to charity service now rests on the plant management. That's a handicap. The burden should rest on the city council. XXX I make this suggestion because it occurs to me that the Hope plant is not showing the real gross volume of Its business—and gross volume has a very Important bearing on the plant's 12 to 20 Schools Will Enter Friday-Saturday Meeting ,A delegation of Hope High School students left here Friday morning for Magnolia where the District 10 literary meet will be held Friday and Saturday. The contest in junior and senior s' voice, senior boys' quartet, ser- girls' trio, junior and senior boys' voice, senior nnd junior violin and reading will be held Friday night, be. ginning at 7:30 o'clock. 3 Separate Programs These contests will be run off in three separate programs.

Immediately following .the contest in senior boys ual contests. Cups will be awarded to the school winning first place in boys' quartette and in senior girls trio. Two grand sweepstake cups will be awarded: one to the school winning tho highest number of points in the junior literary meet, and tho other to the school winning the highest number of points in the senior literary meet. 12 to 20 Schools Entered Between 12 and 20 schools scattered throughout the counties of Lafayette, Hempstead, Miller, Howard, Sc- vier, Little River, Pike and Columbia will be represented in the meet. Some of the schools taking part from the larger communities are Ashdown DeQueen, Nashville, Texarkana, Lewisville, Stomps, Hope and Magnolia but probably some of the strongest individual contestants will come frorr the larger number of consolidated schools in tho smaller community centers. The officials in charge of the meet arc Ben R. Williams superintendent of Ashdown schools, president; W. B. Harding, principal of Arkansas Senior High school, vice president; P. G. Bolding, principal of DeQueen High school, 'secretary; and Miss Beryl Henry, superintendent of the Hope public schools, treasurer. CHASE KIDNA cf Hop* f<»und*J 18»»| Map* Delinquency Fees Announced for '33 Publication of Land List to Be Determined by Supreme Court LITTLE ROCK.— The Arkansas Corporation Commission Thursday sent letters to county clerks and collectors, setting up the amounts to be taxed against delinquent lands as costs incident to the sale of such lands. The total cost on each tract when the land is sold to an individual at the tax sale, if the land is not advertised, will be: To clerk for attending sale and making record of sale, 10 cents. To clerk for listing land sold in name of purchaser, 10 cents. To collector for each tract sold, 10 cents. To ollector for issuing certificate of purchase, 25 cents. Total, 55 cents. When the land is bid off in the name of th,j state, the total cost will be 20 cents, the fee to the clerk for )isting land in the name of the pur- Chaser and the fee to the collector for issueing certifacte of purchase not being payable when the land goes to the state. If the Supreme Court holds .in suits now pending that sections of Act 250 of 933, abolishing publication of delinquent tax lists, are invalid, there will be an additional cost on each trace of 10 cents to the clerk for making a copy of the delinquent list for the printer and printer's costs of 25 cents on each tract >vhcn the list is published in papers having less than 5,000 circulation. auditing firm, the auditors "apparently never have been instructed to report on the amount of charity service. They report on the amount of free water and electricity furnished to the city government and other institutions, amounting to around $19,000 or $20,000 a year, as I recall. The same kind of a report should be filed on individual charity service- increasing by that amount the gross for which the plant management should be given credit. Wasson Has Plan to Stop Robberies Commissioner Would Have Banks Keep Cash at Reserve Centers LITTLE ROCK.— (/P)— A plan he used for some time in his bank at Gentry to discourage attempts to rob the bank has been put into effect on a state-wide basis by State Bank Commissioner Marion Wasson. Because of the series of bank robberies in the state in recent months, which have caused bank robbery insurance rates to go up, the bank commissioner has instructed all state banks to discontinue the practice of keeping surplus cash in their vaults. He notified them they'should keep only enough cash on hand to make change, and in event of a demand for a large amount of cash, require sufficient notice for the bank to get a shipment of currency from the nearest reserve center. 'Banks are instructed to give notice to their customers through newspapers or by mail that these instructions are (Continued on page three) FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: a»a.u.».>AT.Qfr. QHtA National Guard Is Called as lowans Mob Circuit Judge Abused Jurist Refuses to Prosecute Those Who Manhandled Him FORECLOSURE SUIT Judge Had Refused to Promise No Action on 5 Insurance Mortgages LE MARS, la.—(/P)—The threatened lynching of Judge Iharles 0. Bradley, 60, who was dragged from his courtroom Thursday by farmers jecause he refused to promise inaction on foreclosures, Friday brought troops to this area. , . A A mob of 100 men looped a rope around the judge's neck Thursday, yanked it until he fell semi-conscious, smeared him with grease from the axle of. a truck in Which they abducted him from the courthouse, tore off iis pants and left him in the middle of the road. The judge, recovering Friday, said ic would not move for the prosecution of his tormentors. Guard Called Out \DES MOINES, la.—(/p)^-Governor Herring Friday mustered <a. t battalion of the National Guard for service at Le Mars, scene of disturbance Thursday in which a district judge was beaten and threatened with hanging. How It Happened LE MARS, la.— (JP)—The story of the abduction was Mold by a news correspondent who .accompanied the farmers and who. remained with Judge, Bwullsy thjfttUgHibut the. entire affair. •'"V ,.', Shortly after 4 p. m., the farmers entered the judge's courtroom to discuss with him hearings' to determine constitutionality of two new laws relating to mortgage foreclosures. The judge requested them to take off their hats and to stop smoking. "This is my court," he said. The farmers rose in reply to his demands, dragged him off the bench, slapped him and shook him, and carried him bodily out of the courtroom, .hrough the lobby of the courthouse, and onto the lawn. There they demanded that he 'swear" not to sign any more foreclosure actions. Judge Bradley, about iO, defied the crowd and was roughly landled some more. Judge Refuses When he i persisted in refusing to = ive the oath, the farmers, most of ,hem masked, loaded the blindfolded udge into a truck, climbed in behind him and carried him away. At a crossroads about a mile southeast of Le Mars, they put a rope around his neck, the witness said, and repeated their demands. The judge still refused and one of the farmers tugged on .he inch rope. Judge Bradley fell, only partly conscious but still refusing to comply with the demands, the witness said. The farmers dragged the judge to his feet, carried him to the side of the road and threw the loose end of the rope over a sign. "Make him get down on his knees pray," one of the farmers shouted. The judge was pushed to his knees and declared: I will do the fair thing to all men to the best of my knowledge." Insurance companies involved in the suits which Judge Bradley was to hear include the Metropolitan Life, John Hancock Life, Equitable of New York, Mutual Benefit Life, and the Fraklin Life. Other mortgage holders involved are the Collins Mortgage Company, Lincoln Joint Stock Land bank, Federal Land bank, Fremont Joint Stock Land bank, Des Moines Joint Stock Land bank and the First Trust Joint Stock Land bank. The mortgage holders question con- jtitutionality of the law suspending foreclosure proceeding and the law extending the redemption period on foreclosed property until March 1,1935. O.S. A.

Crimm, Thursday night brought another stirring message to his audience at the tabernacle on South Elm street. He said: * , "In my 19 years as Evangelist travel, ing over many states I have made, this observation: There.are three classes of Christians. They are quitters spurters, and stickers. "Nothing in this world makes me as disgusted as a quitter, and this city has lots of them. They say they are outlying Methodists and outlying Baptists or outlying anything: else, and that's the right name all right—they are the outlyih'est .gang I nave ever jjf-'VThe -fact isrtheysare-.iuit..i*.bunch of' yellow-hearted "quitters. ,God de .liver me from a quitter. • • •• "Then We have another bunch, th< spurters. Well,'they're'better than.a quitter. They join during a big meet ing. And that's the last of them until another meeting. But maybe Go( will kill them during the big meeting and they'll be all right I guess. "But here's the crowd I like. I like a 1 sticker: Out of every 10 persons ! have met who profess to be Christian! at - least five do nothing whatever about the saving grace of God. The tree is known by the fruit it grows and' so is life. I never saw Elberta peaches grow on a blackjack tree in my life. I never saw a Christian bear the fruit of a worldly and godless life, either. ."Two out of the 10 actually bear fruit. You will always find them ready to carry the load. There are stickers and God give us more of them. The other three just tolerable. They lay out on the church, find fault with the preacher and everybody else. But the truth is they are afraid it might cost them something to support the church. They want theirs on credit. "I believe if you do God's will He will preserve you in health and supply all of your needs. You may have a hard time quitting the old life, but God, with His help you can do it." Bonus Payment by Inflation Fund Is Beaten in Senate Refuse 60 to 28 to Recommend It to President Roosevelt GOLD SECTION HIT farah Denounces It—and Carter Glass Is Bitterly Critical WASHINGTON — (IP) — The senate late Friday afternoon rejected an amendment ;o the inflation bill to give President : Roosevelt optional power .-to-pay. the veterans' jonus with new money if he desired to do so. The vote was 60 to 28. A warning that the' president was opposed to cash payment of the bonus was tacked up in the senate by Senator Robinson, Democratic leader, just before the vote. >, Robinson said the president was unqualifiedly against the bonus amend, ment as it would defeat the purpose of the bill, and "the purpose he has in mind" is to Use the new credit in meeting maturing government obligations.

WASHINGTON.^)—Speaker Rain ey and Representative Byrns, Demo cratic floor leader, planned to discuss Friday with President Roosevelt the demands of many house Democrats for cash payment of the veterans 'bonus. Rainey and Byrns hoped to ascer tain the president's attitude. Bonus Delays Action WASHINGTON.— (/P) — The admin stration's controlled inflation projec Became ensnarled in a senate disput over the soldiers' bonus Thursday night after the chamber had voted t give President Roosevelt power to de valuate the dollar. So threatening was the pro-bonu sentiment that Democratic leader abandoned plans for a vote Thursday night on that issue, and on the infla- .ion program as a whole, and adjourned to mke a survey of how the ballots will be cast. "Support was attracted to the bonus project, offered as an amendment to the inflation under which payment of the bonus would be made discretionary with the president rather than mandatory. Approval of the devaluation clause, under which Mr. Roosevelt would be authorized to reduce the.dollar's gold content by as much as 50 per ent, climaxed a long and bitter fight, in which regular Republicans' led by Senator Reed, Republian, Pennsylvania, sought to eliminate the section. Glass Opposes Bill Just before the vote. Senator Glass of Virginia, a former Democratic Secretary of the Treasury, arose to take issue with the inflation legislation, expressing regret that he thus should oppose the president, but saying: I'm simply maintaining the attitude of my earnest convictions on public questions, which is more Important to me than party or potentate."
