MILLS (Associated Press Writer With anese Army) JEHOL CITY, China.—(ff)—American motors, in trucks, automobdes, motorcycles, ambulances .- and air planes, played a leading role in Japan's conquest of Jenol. When the campaign plans were drawn it was decided that the K.OOO square miles of territory could be most expeditiously added to the Japanese-fostered state -of Manchukuo by the use of a motorized force. Trucks Pursue Chinese AU except a few of these vehicles bore American trade marks. The exceptions were made in Japan. Caravans of trucks, sometimes three miles long, loaded with Japan's warriors, pursued the poorly organized Chinese over frozen roads and mountain passes, going day and night. All of the Japanese, officers were loud in their praise of these American machines, which stood the most terrible abuses and stresses on some ot the worst roads in the world. Another score for American industry was chalked up by the motorcycles. Thousands of these sturdy little vehicles carried officers, machine gun units, medical supplies, dispatches Ind even the wounded. They too, stood the grueling tests with few berakdowns. Wounded Ride in Comfort The hospital service used American ambulances almost exclusively. I saw scores of these comfortable, six-wheeled vehicles, none of which failed at a critical moment. • American-made airplanes also contributed largely to the Japanese success. Some of the ships had only American motors in them, but there were a considerable number of entirely United States manufacture. g sfc NOTICE FriBdaire electric refrigera^ ffi. Prices low. Bacoa Co..

The government, far from abandoning railroad construction, is now negotiating With foreign groups for the construction of a" important new line 279 miles long, to conect Sivas and Erzeroum.

PRICE 6e ere and There Editorial By Alex. H. Washburn N O thinking man or woman will have any sympathy for the cli isgraceful action of the England (Ark.) city council in attempting to put a legal face on the sale of 3.2 beer. <•) Whatever you think about beer, Is beside the point. Arkansas has a bone'dry law—and it stands until repealed. The town of England could be put under martial law and its officials jailed for conspiracy, for what they have published to the world. The true advocates of prohibition reform are not seeking technicalities and subterfuges. They arc making an honest fight for ratification of repeal of the Eighteenth amendment July 18. The people of Arkansas will vote at that time on a national experiment which we believe has been a failure. And until Arkansas has spoken on School Banquet in Cafeteria 7 P. M.

HITLER APPROVES Muscle Shoals Bill to the President the Eighteenth amendment, governing the whole nation, she will do nothing about the bone-dry Inw, which governs us only. If there had been any great demand for "legal beer in Arkansas we should have attacked our bone-dry law before now. As it is, the quick advocates of beer arc merely riding the tide with the Eighteenth amendment repealer. Let us stick to the main chance. Repeal is running this show—not beer. XXX Hope is sending another graduating class out of her beautiful high school building on South Main street hill Thursday night. We had our first warning that another school year was about done, when the Bobcat staff wrote their farewell in the department of The Star which they closed out a week ago Tuesday. We wish these young journalists good luck, and extend congratulations for doing their job regularly and on time. All the months that the Bobcat appeared its "copy" never was late. If these young folks are half that good, out in the world, they aren't going to have much trouble finding a place for themselves.

Other Woman LITTLE ROCK—A jury in circuit court lulu Tuoydiiy found Leroy Ros- c-nlhal, 21. musician, t'uilt.v of first degree murder for the killing April 1.4 of William E. Hancock, and fixed 'li.s punishment at life imprisonment. Hancock was .shot by Rosenthal after Hancoi-k had ordered the musician from his home, 3109 High street, where Rosimthul was culling on Hancock's . dnuijhter, Mrs. Wanda Marler, Rosen- thul walked to the door, turned, drew a pistol and fired three times. Two bullets struck Hancock in the chest and the third struck Mrs. Marler's leg and ranged downward, fracturing the heel. Rosenthal pleade self-defense and temtx.rary insanity. The verdict \vas read.

Gaston Means Is Declared Guilty Whitaker and He Face 2- Year Terms for Lindbergh Fraud WASHINGTON—Gaston B. -Means, ex-detective and Norman T. Whitaker ex-lawyer, were found guilty Tuesday night of conspiracy to defraud Mrs. Evalyn Walsh McLean of ?35,000 for the promised return, last year, of the kidnaped Lindbergh baby. A jury of seven women and five men deliberating for two and a half hours finally overcame the objections of one man who believed Whitaker more of a hireling of Means than a co-conspirator, and returned their verdict. Sentence, which carries a maximum penalty of two years in the penitentiary with the possibility of a maximum fine of ?10,000 will be imposed within the next four days. To Means who calls himself a "super-sleuth," the sentence means merely that he returns to Atlanta penitentiary where he is serving the first year term for having taken McLean in con- icction with the same ease. Whether the new sentence will run concur- cntly with the present one, lies within the discretion of Justice Daniel W. O'Donoghuc. For Whitaker, the champion chess player who was designated as "The ?ox" in the Means-McLean transaction, it means a brand new stretch behind the bars. Needs Liquor Taxes WASHINGTON. — (fP) — President Roosevelt sent his all-inclusive pub-lie works and industrial supervision program Wednesday to congress where huge Democratic majorities are planning expeditious action. Requesting full executive authority to inaugurate a 3 billion 3 hundred million dollar public construction program, the president asked the legislators to decide before early next week on what new taxes will be required to underwrite this project. If a decision is not reached by that time he will make his own levy recommendations. He also asked authority to reduce or eliminate new taxes, should prohibition repeal become effective or increasing revenues make them unnecessary. Recommending government co-operation with industry he said his purpose is to obtain wide re-employment, shorten the working week, pay a decent wage for the shorter week arid prevent unfair competition or disastrous over-production. Urges Repeal WASHINGTON—(/P)—Searching for jew government revenue, President Roosevelt Tuesday night contemplated n early appeal to the states to ratify ie amednment repealing national pro- libition. Mr. Roosevelt believes repeal and ubsequent federal taxes of liquor vill add considerably to the greatly epicted federal Treasury. Counting on this avenue of reve- wc in the days to come, he will ask n his message to Congress Wednes- lay that he be given power to reduce tr eliminate new taxes which he will iropose to underwrite the $3,300,000,00 public works program. The president is undecided on just what form of new taxation he will >roposc or whether he will propose ny specific plan. The general sale levy or "re-employment" tax of between one and IVi jer cent has been virtually eliminated, lowever, from his consideration. In ts place he had in mind an increase n income taxes as one of the prime elements of the new revenue pro- j-am. This means a boost in the normal rates which are now at the war- .ime level of four per cent on the :irst $4,000 and eight per cent on income above that. Three states have voted ratification of the repeal of the Eighteenth amendment which was approved by Contress last session. A fourth and fifth- Wyoming and New Jersey, have selected delegates pledged for repeal Thirty-six states must vote for repeal to ratify the amendment. The Democratic national platfonv called for repeal and, of course, Mr Roosevelt endorses the step.

Notwithstanding the governor's as sin-lions that he stood for popular elections in filling vacancies in electiv office, the Democratic Stale Centra Committee last Saturday recommend ed Ihe nomination of Democrat! standard-bearers in the July 181 election by convention, rather lha call a special primary or leave th general election open as a free-for-all Man Is Freed in Reporter Slaying Tom Jones Acquitted in Second Trial at Hattiesburg, Miss. HATTIESBURG, Miss. —(#•)— Tom tones, tried a second time for the laying of Hansel Batten, young newspaper man was acquitted here Wednesday. At the first trial he was convicted md sentenced to life imprisonment. NEW YORK—Charles E. Mitchell, former chairman of the National City bank, was pictured, alternately Tuesday as a man who "robbed the public" and as a public-spirited citizen who tossed his personal fortune into the financial maelstrom of 1929, to avert the ruin of his institution "and maybe of the country." United States Attorney George Z. Medalie, prosecuting Mr. Mitchell m federal court on income tax evasion charges, drew the first of the delineations in his opening address to the jury. The second came from Max D Eteuer, defense lawyer. It was the sale of National City bank stock by the banker to his wife- stock which he later repurchased when he had charged the loss off his income tax—that Mr. Steuer defended as "inspired by the neblest and hgihest motives." V: Had that stock been sold openly,' the lawyer said, "it would have spelled ruin to- the National City Company Cthe National City Dank security? af' filiate of. which Mr. Mitchell also'was chairman) and may be to the coun try." Claims Great Losses Mitchell was worth between $25,000,000 and $30,000,000 at the time of the 18,300-share transaction, his lawyer told the jury, and now he is "threadbare." Mr. Steuer said that Mitchel thought the market was going up and that he was insuring his wife's obtaining great wealth, and when th price dropped he bought the stock back to "release" her. Mitchell is in trial for evading pay ments of $850,428 on an income of ap proximately ?4,000,000 in 1929 and 1930 The sale, at a loss, in 1929 of 18,30 shares of NationaTCity bank stock by Mr. Mitchell to his wife, was "a shan and a • pretense" Medalie said, "and can be proved so." He said that Mrs Mitchell lacked the funds to buy the stock when it, supposedly, was sold t her. She had only $941,000 as agains a ?3,874,000 cost price. Not Informed of Sale J. P. Morgan & Co. in whom the actual possession of the stock was vested, was not informed of the transaction. Mr. Medalie said, "So unreal was the transaction that no one took the trouble to affix the ordinary tax transfer stamps to the stocks" he added. Beer Not Legalized, Merely Sold, Says England's Mayor Arkansas City Official Denies He Is Licensing by Means of Fines ENGLAND, Ark.—(/P)—Referring to the "drouth" of 17 years duration that ended here Tuesday as dealers of 3.2 beer supplied a brisk demand. Mayor W. 0. Williams said the council, by a vote of 7 to 1, went on record as declaring that since Congress had declared 3.2 beer non-intoxicating, it did not feel it should override the highest legislative authority in the land. c Williams said Sheriff R. O. Mayor Bcnton had said he would not molest the dcalcis, and he inquired of questioners if they thought "anyone else would bother the beer venders." "We want it understood," Mayor Williams t-aid, "we are not trying to L-vcrridc- the state bone dry law. We did not luf'alize the sale of beer here, because we could not under the law. But I have been mayor for three yeais, and every morning in court, I have been called upon to fine from three to 20 persons for drunkenness. L,U( during the 10 days that beer has bcvn sold hole, there has not been a t-;!^e uf drunkenness. Don't you Iliink it's better tu have been and sobriety than bootleg liquor and drunkenness'.' ' The mayor said the council had an "understanding" with the beer dealers whereby they would not sell to any person under 18 or to any person under the influence of liquor. He corrected what he said was an erroneous statement that dealers were le !u> fined ?10 a week in lieu of a lincense. He said he told the dealers the:- would be fined ?iO if a "kick" He'll Prosecute LITTLE ROCK.— (ff) —Promises f prosecution were made to per- ons who attempt to sell 3.2 per ent beer by Prosecuting Attor- ey Hartje of Conway Wednesday when the action of the England, Ark.) city council in agreeing not o molest beer dealers was brought o his attention.

Several city officials in other cities called him. he said, wanting "copies" of the ordinance passed by the England council. "We passed no ordinance," he said. "Our people here wanted beer, and they have it." Mayor Williams said he is a "bone dry," will vote that way, but added that he is convinced the sale of 3.2 beer is no worse than the sale of any ether soft drink." Rev.
