Ragon Confirmed by Senate Action Becomes Third Democratic Judge Since the Civil War WASHINGTON —(/I 1 )— Representa le Heartsill Ragon of Clarksville, Ark., who has represented the Fifth Congressional Disrll'ict of Arkansas since 1925, who was appointed federal judge of the western district of that state by President Roosevelt Friday, was confirmed by the senate during tlie afternoon. On motion of Senator Robinson of Arkansas, Democratic leader, the senate dispensed with the formality of referring it to committee. Congressman Ragon will be the third Democratic federal judge in Arkansas since the Civil war, and the second in the western district since it was created in 1871. The federal court was established in Arkansas in 1836. The late Henry C. Caldwell, Republican, was appointed judge in 1864, and during his tenure on the bench, the state was divided iiito two dihtricts and the late Judge William Story of Fort Smith, a Republican, was appointed first judge of the western division. Judge Story was succeeded in 1875 by Isaac C. Parker, a Republican, known as the "hanging judge." Judge Parker was succeeded in 1896 by the late John H. Rogers, Democrat, who was succeeded in 1911. by the late ge Frank 9 Youmans, Republican. __er Judge Caldwell of the east- 'district was transferred to the Circuit Court of Appeals in 1891, two other Republicans sat on the eastern district before the appointment of Judge Martineau, Democrat, in 1928. Wallace to Devise Cotton Plan Monday WASHINGTON — (/P) — Secretary Wallace agreed Saturday to meet representatives of the potton industry Monday to take bis first steps in devising a' relief plan covering the South'? major crop. Although no provision seems to have been made for replacing this unsuccessful experiment in Birmingham slag, The Star has always felt confident thnt it was such a complete and disastrous failure on such an important tourist route that the State Highway Department would take care of It 6s soon as finances permit. It cannot be rebuilt as an asphalt road. It must be' built of concrete. Tills much was told this writer »eV- cral months ago by H. H. McGnughy, former engineer of the local district' highway office. It was contemplated by the state and federal departments to lay a heavy asphalt, surface on the .old roadbed. But bore-holes revealed that the base rock used in the foun* dation of the experimental road absorbs water too readily, remaining wet aKer months of dry weather. • In poorly drained sections of the rbad, therefore, the base allows the surface to drop down. Plans for asphalt were cancelled as a pure waste of money. The same type of slag road was successful in Florida, where the bed was elevated and well-drained. You will note that on the embankments, where drainage is good,. the test road has stood _up here also— but for most of the distance between Emmet and Prcscott bad drainage has destroyed it. Concrete has the capacity to bridge treacherous soil. Asphalt doesn't. XXX This morning's Arkansas Gazette, speaking of the referendum on repeal of the 18th amendment July 18, says that the McGehec Times has done "something which every paper in the state might take as an example," explaining that the issue is a fundamental question of law—not a referendum on beer. More than two weks ago, on April, 25, The Star said: "We sire going to support the re- pealer. . . . We believe in home rule for cities, home 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 rheas- 1899( Hofr* &tify Vttti, «i Hope Sur, jwucty it, CONCRETE HEARS m m?'^~- " • A • -«r"w A ^ !

The Democratic State Central Committee decided today that 1 the politicians know more than the people when it comes to choosing the party's standard-bearers in the campaign for the supreme court, congress and chancery judge July 18. These are hard times, and the scarcity of public money makes a special primary election seem wasteful—but every good Democrat will denounce the high-handed act by which the state committee has robbed the people of any real choice at the polls- E-veryone knows Arkansas is Democratic. And taking advantage of the fact, the party ringleaders have arranged to hand-pick the nominees by a convention in which friends will be remard and enemies castigated, regardless of competence or their standing in the public favor. It would serve them right if some independent Democrats took the ring to a royal cleaning at the polls. Jap Planes Scout for Tientsin Push Invaders on the March for Tientsin and Capital, Pieping TIENTIS1N, China.— (fi>)— A Japanese airplane carrier arrived Saturday off Tangku, 35 miles east of here. Half a dozen of 40 airplanes carried aboard her are reported making rc- connaisance fdights in this vicinity. Fears of an attack on Tientsin from that direction increased as it became norc apparent that the Japanese forces about 90 miles northeast of here were beaded for Peiping, where the Chinese have prepared to put up a stiff battle. Tientsin is on the railroad between the sea and Peiping. FLAPPER FANNY SAY& Hid. U.». PAT. Off. The girl with pretty hands shines at uallUitf her man. Probers Show Up His False Leads; Talks About Dead His Story Deals With 7 Persons, 5 of Whom Are Dead CLUES PETER OUT Detroit and Elizabeth (N. J.) Probers Hit Blank Wall WASHINGTON — (/P) — Federal officials after investigating the story told by Gaston Means of contacts with the Lindbergh kidnapers Saturday pronounced his tale "the figment of a weird imagination that makes Baron Munchausen look like a piker." Money found in a safety deposit box in Elizabeth, N. J., which Means said belonged to Max Hasscl, assassinated beer runner, and was paid as the Lindbergh ransom, was found to be in larger denominations than that paid by Dr. John Condon, Lindbergh's intermediary, to the kidnapers. Detroit Story Also Fake DETROIT, Mich.-(;pj-One of the addresses, 2419 Grand. River avenue, here, given by Gaaton Means as that of Wellington Henderson, whom he described as the . ring-leader of the Lindbergh kidnaping plot, is the site of a building housing-the local headquarters of the Workers Party. A chock*-ot,all ISctory employment records arid local police files disclosed no record of 'anyone named Wellington Henderson, police said Saturday. They're All Dead! WASHINGTON.—For two days Gaston B. Means, on the witness stand here in the District Supreme Court, has rambled through an alibi of his participation, a year ago, in a plan to recover the kidnaped Lindbergh baby. In two minutes Saturday United States Atttorney Leo A. Rover, in charge of the prosecution o£ Means and Norman T. Whilaker for conspiracy to defraud Mrs. Evelyn Walsh McLean of $35,000 in connection with the plan, gave the alibi seven short punches. The drama that Means had taken so long to present had seven main characters and he had assigned them the following roles: Wellington Henderson, the actual kidnaper. Irving Fcnton, his accomplice. Max Hassel and Max Greenberg, New Jersey rum runners, who engineered the details. Violet Sharp, Mrs. Dwight Worrow's maid who, unwittingly aided the plot, Ed Aubinger, Chicago gangster, in the know, William J. Burns, famed detective, brought in as character reference for Means. As soon as Means had spoken his piece this afternoon, Rover began his cross examination. The prosecutor took a moment or two to establish that Means had gone twice to jail for conspiracy. Then he said politely, that of course Means wouldn't tell anything but the truth. Unctiously Means replied that of course he wouldn't, Then Prosecutor Starts Whereupon Mr. Rover went into action. Number one: "Where is Violet Sharp?" "She's dead; er—at least the press says she's dead." Number two: "Where is Aubinger?" "He committted suicide—that is, er— he is supposed to have." Number three: "Where is Fpnton?" "You can find him on the Canadian border." (A long fumble through his notebook, then) "You can find him at 2419 or mebbc it's 3419; one of those numbers, Grand River avenue, Detroit. At least you could get track of him there." Rover wanted to know if Means had subpoenaed him but the defense objected to the question. Number four: "Where s Henderson?" "Same address. It's the headquarters of the Third Internationale." Number five: "Where is Hassell?" "He was shot to death April 12." Number six: "Where is Greenberg?" "He was shot to death beside Has- selcl." Number seven: "Where is William J. Burns?" "He died in April." "That's all," snapped Rover, and sat down. Judge Adjourns Court Nobody made a sound. Finally the judge announced that court would adjourn until Monday morning. Slowly Means closed his wide open mouth. Slowly he lumbered down from the witness chair. Early this morning he had climbed -up to the chair with a grin. This Negro Boy Just Petted Bloodhounds, and Got Fresh Start PINE BLUF, Ark.-(/P)-Ed Jacksohj alls Billy Washington is a negro boy who likes bloodhounds—and bloodhounds apparently- like him. Ed escaped from the •Cummins state prison farm Tuesday afternoon . and bloodhounds were put on his trail, but* the chase was abandoned after hours. Deputy Constable Jesse Alford captured the negro here Friday and one of the first questions was how he. eluded the; hounds. "Why;-when de dawgs cotched up with me, Ah jes petted 'em awhile till Ah got rested and then Oh would run some," Ed explained. He is to be returned to the prison farm to finish the two-years months of a three-year sentence imposed at Lcwisville charge. on a burglary Public Denied Vote for Party Chdfii Convention Will Hand- Pick "Nominees" for July 18 LITTLE ROCK-(/P)-State and district conventions to be held here on June 20 were called by the Democratic S^ate Central Committee Saturday to nominate, .candidates for chief justice of the supreme court, a congressman for the Fifth district, and chancellors of the Sixth a Twelfth {districts. . : • : * : *M •• • ••• • i- • JA j~ 'AAWimm^^^V^^JK»KAAI .-, -Thc-r conventions ^willrlje^ie^po^fds "^%&$£%-~l££™! of delegates to the state peifiocriftic ,..-V, ^'•ifl_ - Itfcir convention in Hot Springs last September. The resolutions for conventions to select the nominees for chief justice and the chancellors went through with little opposition, but a bitter fight developed' on the convention plan for choosing a nominee to succeed Heartsill Ragon, who has been appointed federal judge. After the first resolutions were adopted, Chairman Lee Miles of the state committee held a similar resolution relating to the congressional seat out of order because no vacancy now exists, as Ragon has not yet resigned. Senator C. I. Evans, of Boonevllle, appealed from the chair's ruling, and on a roll call the chair was overruled 21 to 11. The resolution was adopted 22 to 10. During the debate it developed that Governor Futrell's call a few days ago for the election July 18 for chief justice and chancellors was premature because it was issued more than 30 days before the election. Another call must be issued on or after June 18, it was explained. 8 Oklahomans Die as Tornado Hits 5 Killed Near Tulsa, and at Home of Will Rogers, Comedian BULLETIN MUSKOGEE, Okla. — (ff) — At least two persons were killed and five injured at Hulbert, near the Arkansas border, in a tornado which struck early Saturday morn- Ing, reports received here by Utc Frisco said.
