Church Missions Also Feel Panic Annual Methodist Report Reveals Decrease of Income NASHVILLE, Tenn. —(£•)— A, decrease in income and an increase in needs and opportunities of missionary work of the Methodist Episcopal church, south, during the. past year was reported Wednesday by Dr. O. E. Goddard, secretary of foreign .missions, to the board of missions at its eighty-seventh annual meeting here. His report covered activities of missionaries of the church in many foreign lands. He said that in China there had been a change from hostility to hospitality toward. Christian thought and that "country "was never so ripe for evangelism as now"; that hi Japan, the "war spirit is rife only in the military circles of the government"! "in Europe, radical changes have been made in the interest of ' economy." He said that some of, the Missionaries there had been changed to contract workers but none of the missions had been closed. Miss Sallie Lou McKinnon, foreign i secretary, woman's work, reported that;the past:year had been one of uncertainty and of difficulty in foreign missions. "Unstable economic and political,conditions in these countries have made field contributions and collections of, fees necessarily small while the same conditions have made needs and opportunities increasingly urgent -and demanding," " she reported. "The financial situation in the United States has made decreases in appropriations inevitable." Major Hicks' to Take Charge Forest Camps RUSSELLVILLE, Ark.—(fl 3 )—Major George R. Hicks of the U.

On trial at Washington for grafting $35,000 from Mrs. Edward B. McLean Who sought to help the Lindberghs get back their baby, Means told the jury today the names of two men he said did the kidnaping. Also, he said these men made two attempts to return the baby after the ransom had been paid. Means Is a double-crosser and a liar. This was proven when the government sent him to Atlanta penitentiary (or his connection with the scandals of the Harding administration. He is B sensationalist—always "john- ny on the spot," with his eye at the keyhole, whether the keyhole leads to Attorney General Daughtcrty's office, "The Strange Death of President Harding," or tlic Lindbergh kidnaping New Bonus Army Is Ordered Out of First Encampment Washington Police Pushing Them Back Across Potomac River U. S. CAMP~SPURNED Bonus Marchers Decline to Use Government Quarters Offered WASHINGTON— (/P)— Police acted swiftly Wednesday ,ight to prccent repetition of it year's spectacular riot in Washington by ordering evacuation of the first 1933 bonus army camp. Sharp words passed between bluecoats and leaders of the marchers headed by Harold . Foulkrod, when they were told to leave a vacant lot behind the House Office building. Inspector Albert J. Headley notified the veterans they must evacuate within 24 hours because of lack of sanitary facilities. Heatedly, Mike Thomas of Camden, N. J., told Headley the group could bo evicted "but many more arc on the way." Thomas was in last year's ar'my which was driven out by federal troops. «• In view of camping arrangements provided by the government at Fort Hunt, across the river in Virginia, metropolitan police have followed a course of merely guarding city property and have not interfered with movements of the veterans. Refuse Camp Facilities has refused the camp's facilities on the grounds its prospective occupants were Communists. Foulkrod's followers are disputing leadership of the new bonus march with a faction headed by the Veterans National Liaison Commillce. The administration has agreed with the later lo shelter and feed Ihe veterans for a period al Fort Hunl. About 150 of Foulkrod's rank and Mile reached Washington Wednesday JProrning and went at once to Capitol 'Wll and there look over Ihe vacant lot. In anticipation of any atlcriipted demonslralion, Capl. S. J. Gnash of Ihe capilol police asked for 50 city policemen lo reinforce his men. Foulkrod. legislative officer of last year's movement, sent his men through the Office building to interview rcp- rescnlalives and seek Ihcir support for immediate payment of the bonus. 800 In Washington No accurale eslimale of Ihe number of velerans now in Ihe cily was obtainable, although police saiy Ihey believed nboul 800 were in Ihe immediate vicinity. Liar, cheat, doublc-crosser—but the World is still listening to him. For conceivably he may be telling the truth this one time, and on this dim prop rests a possible chance to unravel the Lindbergh mystery. xxx Taxpayers arc consoled by news today that the state has fired all but two of the capitol's thirteen janitors. Little Rock office-holders hereafter will cither sweep out their own quarters, or hire a janitor personally. Janitors' salaries don't break any- body-»-bul when office-holders are down lo doing their own sweeping the public understands that some real economy is in force. Which is all we wanted to know. XXX ' You read'in today's paper that banks and insurance companies representing holders of 91 million dollars' worlh of Arkansas' highway and toll bridge bonds have formed a protective association to fight our bond refunding measure. Dime saving banks, great insurance companies, represent the forces of thrift in America. They protest that ,bonds purchased on a 4 1 /. to 5 per cent interest basis can't arbitrarily be cut down to 3-pcr-ccnt interest withoul repudiating Arkansas' credit and honor. They arc right. Our slate's sole defense is necessity—and that is all we have- ever claimed. • The.real dishonor isn't today. It occurred in past years when the Arkansas legislature and the county judges' lobby conspired to defraud the bond- hqWerj^of jbeir J^nds and their coir lateral. " •", • Readers of this paper know all about that, how the judges got 12V4 per cent of the bond money from the mortgaging of gasoline tax revenues—9 million dollars all told—and when the mortgage business played out, got one- sixth of the gasoline revenue despite the fact that it was collateral for mortgages already issued. Germany to Step Up WarStrength Geneva Conference Startled by Hitler's Flat Demand Foulkrod's faction is demanding only payment of the bonus. The Veterans National Liaison Committee's program in addition calls for re- storatfoh of disability allowances slashed under the economy act and farm and unemployment relief. farmers Week Is Cancelled at A, U.

Means Swears He Knows Kidnapers of Lindbergh Child Ex-Convict Names TwoH Says They Tried to Return Infant , i STORY BORNE OUT Third Suspect in Holdup Identified June Brashear Viewed by Staff of First National Thursday A third suspect in the $24.000 robbery of the First National Bank here February 23, was identified Thursday by members of the bank staff as June Brashear, alias Louis Jamison, 28. Brashear was brought to Hope city ll at 11:30 Thursday morning where Lloyd Spencer, Syd McMath, Roy Slcphenson and Chester Harwell, members of the bank staff, viewed the suspect and said that Brashear was one of three bandits who entered the bank with drawn pistols. Brashear was said to have stood guard over the bank employes while Charley Chapman, alleged leader of the gang, went through money cages and the bank vault sacking the loot in a large cloth bag. Brashear was arrested in Claremore, Okla., after being traced to Kansas City, parts of Texas, and then into Oklahoma. He was taken to El Dorado following his arrest in Oklahoma, tp face charges of robbing the Smackovcr State' Bank of approximately J6000 last January. Brashear was brought to Hope by El Dorado officers Thursday morning. 'His Second Arrest It .was the second time that Brashear has been arrested. Three days after the robbery here while Hempstead and Miller county officers were searching the vicinity of Garland City in an effort to arrest Shirley Crank in connection with the robbery, Brashcar was nabbed at Fulton by Deputy Sheriff J. C. Pate. Pate brought the suspect to Hope. At that time Chester Harwell said he was "positive" that Brashear was one of the bandits who stood over him with a pistol while the bank was being robbed. Other members o£ the bank staff at that time said they were not positive concerning Brashear's identity, Brashear was taken to the city hall and after being questioned by officers was released. Brashear is the second suspect to be arrester in connection with the daylight robbery of Smackover bank. Charley Chapman, one time wealthy road contractor and believed to be the leader of raid on the Hope bank, is charged with the robbery, It became known last Friday that Chapman hnd been released from the El Dorado jail under $6000 bond for appearance at the June term of Union county criciiit court. Sheriff A. D. Maxey, of Crawford county, who captured Chapman near Van Buren several weeks ago after a gun battle in which the alleged bandit was wounded five times, is believed instrumental in bringing about the arrest of Brashear at Claremore, Okla. Williams Sentenced Charley Williams, one of the actual bank robbers, pleaded guilty during the April term of Hempstead circuit court and was sentenced to five years in the penitentiary. Williams was not asked to name his companions in the robbery during open court. Williams was captured in Alexandria, La., a few days following the arrest of Chapman near Van Buren. It was said Sheriff Maxey furnished Louisiana officers information which led to the arrest of Williams at Alexandria. The Hempstead county grand jury indicted Chapman. But at that time Sheriff'Maxey was holding him for the "highest bidder." Circuit Judge Dexter Bush issued a court order and sent Sheriff John L. Wilson to return Chapman to this county for trial. When the Hempstead sheriff arrived to get Chapman, Sheriff Maxey had removed his prisoner. For two days the whereabouts of Maxey and Chapman were not known. Then the Crawford-county sheriff turned up at El Dorado and turned his prisoner over to Union county officers for robbery of the Smackover bank. Friend of Lindbergh Recalls Seeing Strangers at His Home WASHINGTON — (/P) — Gaston Means told the jury in District of Columbia Supreme Court Thursday, where he is on trial for conspiracy in connection with the ransom attempt for the Lindbergh baby last year, that the kidnapers made two attempts to deliver the child in Washington on March 8, 1932, a week after the kidnaping. Naming Wellington Henderson and Irving Fcnton as the kidnapers, Means said Henderson told him that they look the baby once to the Georgetown home of Col. M. Robert Guggenheim, a friend of Lindbergh, but delivery was refused. Henderson, according to Means' testimony, told him that just before this they had sought to deliver the child loathe McLean home. Part of Henderson's story to Means was apparently corroborated by previous testimony given the, court by Colonel Guggenheim, who said he caught a glimpse of a man and baby stepping off his front porch into a cab, where a woman was waiting for them. ' • • Names Kidnapers WASHINGTON.— (ff) -Gaston^ B.; Means,-testifying in his own'defense in the ransom conspiracy : trial here, said in District of Columbia Supreme Court Thursday that he knew who kidnaped the Lindbergh baby, how the child was killed, and who got the $50,000 that Dr. John Condon was paid to ransom the infant. Means said he believed the man is named Irving Fenton, and that there is a posibility that another man named Wellington Henderson had an im-. portent part in the abduction. They intended at first, he said, to kidnap Colonel Lindbergh, later changing their plans. Means said he met them while a prisoner in Atlanta penitentiary. Priest Testifies WASHINGTON—A Roman Catholic priest, so ill he came to court in a wheel chair; a detective hugging a parcel of diamonds; a defendant cussing out his own lawyer. These are some of the ingredients that went into the making of the trial', here Wednesday in 'the District Supreme Court, of Gaston B. Means and Norman T. Whitaker, charged with conspiracy to defraud Mrs. Evelyn Walsh McLean of $35,000 in connection with their futile plan last year to recover the kidnaped Lindbergh baby. The Rev. Francis J. Hurney was the priest. He came from a sick bed to tell the court how he had been called to Mrs. McLean's home March 6, 1932, to sit in at a conference with her and Means ,a^ Means received from her $104,000 with which to ransom the baby he was confident he could recover. Then the priest told of promises which Means, and later Whitaker, had made to Mrs, McLean, for six weeks. He said he had accompanied Mrs. McLean and Means to Mrs. McLean's country home in nearby Maryland where Means had assured them the baby would be returned in 48 hours. He told of the various delays, the many excuses which kept coming up, as Means sent Mrs. McLean hopefully to her cottage at Aiken, there to receive the baby and then on down to El Paso, where, he assured her, the child would be returned; then back again to Aiken, and on to Washington. iBattleof the Derby" ' —Photos by Universal JNewsreel Here's the camera version of that ..Kentucky Derby fight that brought suspension for,Jockeys Donald Mcadc, who rode Broker's Tip (No. 16), the winner, and Herb W.

R's Signature Delayed One Day Inflation Bill Will Reach President Friday Instead WASHINGTON.— (/P) —The sending of the farm relief-inflation bill to the White House Thursday was delayed until Friday pending the arrival of Speaker Rainey of the house, whose signature is necessary to complete the legislative aclion. Speaker Rainey is returning to the capital from Columbus, Ohio. Anti-Trust Move Beaten WASHINGTON — (/P) — An unsuccessful atlempt was made by Democratic insurgents at a secret caucus Wednesday night to put the huge house democratic majority in this session designed to relax the anti-trust laws. The caucus, forced by 29 Democrats led by Representative Shannon of Missouri, broke up after Iwo hours of biller altacks by the insurgents on the proposed suspensio nof the antitrust laws, but not before a resolution was unanimously adopted "expressing confidence in the leadership and patriotism of President Roosevelt." Representative Byrns of Tennessee, the Democratic leader, presented the resolution supporting President Roosevelt after the insurgents withdrew resolutions by Representative McFarlane, democrat, Texas, declaring against any relaxation of the anti- Irusl laws. , McFarlane contended that the farm relief-anflation bill, ready to go to the president for his signature, with the administration's railroad bill and the projected industry control measure would permit relaxation of the anti-trust laws. He declared this was contrary to the democratic national platform, which says: We advocate strengthening and impartial enforcement of the antitrust laws, to prevent monopoly apd unfair trade practices, and revision thereof for the better protection of labor and the small producer and distributor." It was established that there were but 130 of the 313 house-democrats in the chamber, or 27 short of a quorum. Representative Parker of Georgia, cited that the call for the cqicus proyid- ed only for discussion of the antitrust laws and theratened to make a point of order for lack of a quorum un]ie?§ the resolution wa? withdrawn. Jap Plane Drops Notice of Attack Chinese Prepare Hopeless Defense of Capital City Peiping PEIPINGj China— (P)—A Japaijese bombing plane roared tfver Peiping Thursday and rained down handbills jvarn- ing of an immediate attack on the capital of North China. Chinese machine-gunners opened fire but the plane, at a safe height, completed its mission and flew away. The handbills said, if the Chinese failed to "cease opposing the Japanese and Manchukuoans, and refused) to break away from Marshal Chiang Gai-Shek, Chinese commander-in- chief, the trage'dy of Kupeikow. will occur in Peiping and Tientsin." Chinese officials in.\:ated they would not heed the warning and would resist the^ advance to the utmost. • .'"' • Bankers, Insurance Cos' Fight Refund Protective Association to Attack Arkansas' Prograjn NEW YORK— (IP)— A committee composed of executives of banks, insurance companies, and investment firms was -formed Thursday tb represent the holders- of 91 of Arkansas to 11 bridge Chinese Concede Defeat TIENTSIN, China.—Three Japanese brigades accompanied by aerial bombers haye crossed the Lwan river in North China, beyond the large triangle they declared they would make into a neutral zone, and Wednesday were sweeping rapidly southwestward in the direction of Peiping. The relaxing of Chinese censorship in Tintsin and Peiping shows the editors to be keenly alive to the probability that the major Japanese aim is to drive out the constituted authority from Peiping and make possible the founding of an independent North China hostile to Nanking. Gen. Ho Chu-Kuo, war minister, in command in North China, describes the present operations as being unprecedented in size and fury in the Sino- Japanege conflict and expresses the conviction that the Japanese fully intend to smash the loyalist armies in North China and then, with the demoralized troops fully retreating, to establish an independent pro-Man- chukuo regime. General Ho declares China is trying its utmost to frustrate the scheme, but is convinced the Japanese will use force at whatever point it may be necessary to enable the anti- Nanking elements to establish their own regime. Telephone advices from Peiping report an extraordinary decision on the part of General Ho, after ascertaining from the Japanese authorities in Pei- ping that the main smash through Miyun was scheduled to begin Thursday. General Ho, conceding the inevitability of Shinese defeat and- fearing the disorganized Chinese troops fleeing southward' may create disorders and attempt looting, announced that when Miyun falls he will close Peip- ing's gates. He is already mounting machine guns on the, city walls and digging a vast semicircle of trenches a fe wmiles north of the city, whence machine gunners will, if necessary, fire upon the retreating Chinese forces to deflect them and prevent looting in Peiping.
