LOUIS— (fi>) —Numerous in- mces of progress nrid Improvement in'industry and commerce during the last 30 days were noted in the Eighth Federal Reserve District, the monthly report of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis said Friday. In mercantile lines, the report said, the full extent of the improvement is not adequately reflected in the March statistics, ns most of the improvement came in the fiul week of that month and the first week of April. The report attributed the upward movement partly to the rapidity with which banking facilities were restored 'following the holiday in early March. In the wholesaling and jobbing lines, March sales were in most 4 instances larger than those in February, although still under the volume a year ago. Retail trade made a less favorable showing clue to unfavorable weather, disturbed banking and the lateness of Easter. Floods, rain and other factors have delayed agriculture from ten days to two weeks. ^Ipio increased employment in the ^Hewing industry offset decreases in the mines and industrial plants, leaving employment about as it was in the month preceding. Department store sales were 13.3 per cent greater than in February, and 28.4 per cent lower than in March last year. The terminal railway here, handling interchanges for 28 lines, interchanged 110,0-19 loads, compared with 112,484 in February and 149,953 in (Continued on page three) FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: Hta. U. S.

Davis Lay* American Proposal Before 8 Nations A TEMPORARY MOVE Truce Would Hold Until London Pact Is Arrived at in June LONDON, E.ng.— (/P) —A proposal for a world-wide economic armistice was laid before the organizing conv mittee of the world economic; conference by Norman H. Davis, American ambassador- at-large, at a meeting of the committee in the foreign of-- fice Saturday afternoon. Davis conferred with Foreign Secretary Simon of Great Britain and outlined the plao to him before go. ing into the committee meeting where eight of the organizing nations were represented. America's economic truce, as proposed by Davis, is a far-reaching measure to end the economic warfare among all nations until the agreements to be reached at the worla economic conference can be made cf. fcctive. Bulletins WASHINOTON-(yp)- Information received here Saturday said a revolt had broken out In the Orients province of Argentina, and disorders were reported In the towns of Songo, San Luis and Bo- nlato. Two soldiers weia report, cd killed at Boniato. farmers bent on saving their homes, the insurance companies trying to protect the savings that their policyhold- crs had entrusted to them. XXX If there is a moral to'be pointed in this Iowa outbreak it is that the American people will be more cautious in the future about pledging their homes for any kind of loan. Big financiers jump out of skyscraper windows, and little farmers beat up helpless judges, all because somebody in the past made a bad mistake. We kid ourselves into looking for government relief—but no government can do anything for a people who forget to be afraid of debt. This panic was caused by the fair- haired boys who a few years ago preached not to be afraid of going into debt—"this is a new era that will never end." It ended in a riot and near-lynching. And that kind of preachment will always end that way, as long as the world shall endure. XXX Mr. Roosevelt is playing his cards shrewdly. At one and the same time he has an international trade confcr- uicc going in London, and at home he is advertising a first-class inflation to frighten hoared dollars out of hiding and into the business channels, to trade once more in cotton and wheat, steel and automobiles. The dollars, fearing they will only be worth half as much, must come out. Therefore cotton and other commodities and stocks took a new jump Saturday. I am wondering if this is to be a real inflation, or an executive bluff. It occurs to me that the president hopes to frighten dollars of hiding, and then got international trade rolling again before he has to actually use the weapon of inflation. XXX You will recall that the power conferred on him in the bill just passed by the senate makes inflation "discretionary." Roosevelt can inflate or not inflate, as he chooses. My guess is that he won't inflate as much as we suppose. I believe the Democratic party with its lower-tariff proposals will conclude an economic peace at London in June, restore wheat and cotton exports—and pull the United States put, the world with it. Carter Glass, great Virginia economist, is afraid. He opposes even the threat of inflation. But Secretary Woodin of the Treasury says he is "for the chief to the end." There you are—and how you figure the answer depends PR whether you are a pessimist or an 'o Must Stop Raiding WASHINGTON — (fP)~ The American government regards it as most important to reach some gentleman's agreement so that betwen now and the time of the world economic conference in London, and during the conference sessions, there will be no more increasing of • the obstacles already presented to trade, it was disclosed, here Saturday. .

B. Darby, Ruston business man, and Miss Sophie Stone, Lincoln parish home demonstration agent, stole Darby's car and disappeared after releasing the abducted pair near Waldo, Ark. Three men and two women are in the party sought and Darby and Miss Stone, returning here on $5 which their abductors furnished on putting the victims out on the roadside, Friday identified two of them from police photographs as Clyde Chapman Barrow, 23, and Melvin Ivan Barrow, 31, described by authorities as desperate characters of West Dallas, Texas. Police records showed Melvin Barrow was recently pardoned from the Texas penitentiary and with Clyde Barrow was being sought for the slaying of Detective Harry McGinnis and Constable J. W. Harriman at Joplin, Mo., on April 13. Darby and Miss Stone said the gang told them that Darby's car was stolen to effect a bank robbery. When the car was stolen near Nice, La., Thursday, Darby and Miss Stone gave chase in another machine, only to be seized on the highway by other members of the gang, who forced them to travel into Arkansas before agreeing to release them. The abducted pair said they were driven at high speed through the business districts of Junction City, El Dorado and Magnolia, Ark., and eventually were put out near Waldo, where they were given ?5 to return home on.

Approval Probably to Be Given Banks Saturday LITTLE ROCK.—(yP)—Loan applications of Greater Little Rock's restricted banks probably will be approved finally by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation Saturday, a local representative of the corporation was informed during a telephone conversation with an official at Washington. The five restricted banks are seeking approximately $3,000,000, to be used in paying 50 per cent of their deposit liabilities. The payments will be made through new banks which have been organized to supplant tre old institutions. Officers of the new banks said that if the money is made available they will open for business Monday morning. Approximately $7,000,000 will be made available to depositors of the old banks. The other 50 per cent of deposits eventually will be paid in full, the bankers believe, through liquidation of the old institutions. 30-Hour Bill Will Include the Press Typographical Union Demands Extension to Publishing Field WASHINGTON.—(A 3 )—A prediction that the 30-hour work week bill when reported to the house would include newspapers and periodicals was made by Chairman Conery Friday in the labor committee's hearings on the measure. He made this statement after Edward F. Cassidge, representing the New York Typographical Union aud its 11,000 printers, had demanded that newspapers and periodicals be included among articles that would be banned from interstate commerce unless their workers were on a six-hour-day, five-day week basis. Goodyear. Texas Financial Wizard and Kuhn, Loeb & Co. Rivals of House of Morgan By WILLIS THORNTON NBA Service Writer NEW YORK—The goliath of the army of private banking against which the United States Senate is soon to hurl its pebbles of investigation, is J. P. Morgan & Co. But there are other giants in that army and they are little less formidable. Kuhn, Loeb & Co., Lee, Higginsoni> ' & Co., Dillon, Read & Co, are typical examples of the huge private banks specializing in the issue and floating of securities, which have achieved a mammoth concentration of money power. Investigated 20 years, ago with little result, these private banks now face further probings and perhaps regulation. KuTm, Loeb & Co., is probably next in size to the House of Morgan, though of course absence of public reports makes it impossible to say with precision. Second only to Morgan in the general private banking field, Kuhn, Loeb is probably second to none in the railroad field. Railroads to which it has lent aid as reorganize!' or banker include Northern Pacific, Union Pacific, Southern Pacific, B. & O., Pennsylvania, Missouri Pacific, Chicago & Eastern Illinois, Wabash, Texas & Pa. cific, and Denver & Rio Grande. Its palatial offices at William and Pine streets occupy four floors, and are, through the provate activities cf the partners, the wellspring of Jewish charities and benevolence in the United States. Tfiere is a pronounced air of art and internationalism about Kuhn, Loeb & Co. Rails and Kuhn. Loeb Otto H. Kahn, partner, is bestknown to the public through his patronage of the Metropolitan Opera and other musical enterprises. Felix Warburg, partner, descendant of a long line of German bankers from Hamburg, is one of our great philanthropists. The international aspect is aided by Lieut.-Col.

B. B. Crimm, evangelist, related the parable of the talents in his message Friday night, After reading from John 25:14 the Rev. Mr. Crimm took off his coat, necktie and seated himself in a cane- bottom chair on the platform to bring chuckles from his audience in relating wise-cracks about Herbert Hoover, "Ma" Ferguson and Huey P (Kingfish) Long. He spoke about lazy people saying: "I rate a lazy guy. One of the most disgusting and inexcusable sins on earth is the one of laziness. Some people who live only two blocks from this tabernacle arc not attending this meeting because they have no car in which to ride here ,or maybe they are not attending because they don't have money enough to purchase license in order to run their car here." He severely criticized moving picture houses, bootleggers and church members who patronized bootleggers, girls of the streets, bridge parties and public dances. ; In discussing ttye woman who solicts on the street he declared that he had "more respect for her Ulan the married woman whp sneaks away with Closes Nearly as ; , 'ft*) Stock Market SM at Public Ri Treasury Head Sa) "See Chief T;l Hto and commodities , Wll huge aggregate gains' day asfrestr buying, ^1"__ by the senate's approval;* farm '* '-relict, / 'aMdsi&Jral measure* and.much t&fa business news, was '"" """ the market.' / v On the Stock Exchange, gains" ed froth $1 to niore than $5 a ph the most active trading the marl; seen in many months.
