Damagin Against Louderback, Facing Impeachment WASHINGTON —(#)-- Prosecutors of Federal Judge Harold •Louderback succeeded over defense objections Wednesday in writing into th« record of his Impeachment trial tvldem* that while a state judge he named two friends—mentioned irj the Impeachment articles—to lucf atlye positions as receivers and appraiser*. One was W. S. Leake, a San Francisco "healer," for whom th* senate issued a warrant to compel his appearance as a prosecution witness. Me has refused to comply with a subpoena, contending he was physically unable to da so. Prosecutor from the House of Representatives were granted, by a 69- to-4 Votes, the fight to offer as evidence state records to show Leake and G. H.. Gilbert of San Francisco, were appointed receivers by Louderback. Gilbert, a telegraph operator, was designated by Louderback as receiver in two of the fice cases involved in the ouster charges. An intimate friend of the judge is'credited there with recommending H. B. Hunter to succeed Ad- dlson G. Strong as receiver for the Russell-Colvin Brokerage Co. of San Francisco. makes it even, more formidable in that respect. Besides being next best catcji- er to Dickey and Cochrane, Ferrell is a deadly hitter, especially in a pinch. Maybe Emerson was right in his essay on compensation. The Red Sox sent to the Yankees the stars that made the team a flag winner. And last year Joe McCarthy sent two pitchers to the Hub after it began to ppear they would not" help New fork's chances materially. The two were Ivy Paul Andrews/and Henry ohnson. Now these two young men are about ;'as classy as any in the \merican League. And do they harass New York! Business Pickup Is Reported to F.D.R. Exports Sag, But Domestic Employment Tide Apparently Has Turned WASHINGTON-^)—The advisory council of the Federal Reserve Board told President Roosevelt Wednesday that the improvement in business conditions had become general throughout the .country, and that banks are feeling the gains. This report was 4he result of e minute analysis of conditions in all Federal Reserve districts. Indications were that this study was linked to the new inflation powers of the president, so tlmt thorough knowledge of the situation could precede application of any steps to increase credit or currency. As this good domestic news was being reported, the Department of Commerce found that the country's foreign trade had dropped again in April. Exports exceeded imports to give the country a favorable trade balance of $17,000,000 but the total of exports was $105000,000 against $108,031,000 the month before, and imports dropped from $94,859,000 to $88,000,000.

"I had nothing to do with the Sen- - tral Committee's action. Neither did I have anything to do with the selection of delegates to the last state convention or the selection of the central committecmon.

A state primary for chief justice, the governor said, would cost $30,000, while that for the Fifth congressional district to nominate a successor to Congressman Hcartsill Ragon would be about $4,500. Governor Futrell denied he had anything to do with action of the Central Committee in calling together June 20 the 600 delegates to the last state convention, to nominate for chief justice. Judge C.

Mitchell's transfer of $3,800,000 worth of National Cany bank stock to his wife in 1929, was a spurious transaction to escape paying $728,700 income taxes that year. The former chairman of the bank also is charged with evading a $129,719 income tax in 1930. ' Three witnesses described the 1929 transaction and Edward F. Barrett, a vice president of the bank who formerly was Mitchell's secretary and handled Mrs. Mitchell's business affairs, said th.at no money passed,.

Woodin said advices to the Treasury showed both business and industry had mooved ahead in recent weeks, adding that "the formard movement has been underway for some time." Only 1% billion of deposits remains tied up in closed national banks, he said, while 17 billions has been released, the Treasury head said. The first figures issued by the renovated Statistical Bureau of the Labor Department were made public by Miss Perkins, showing some employment gains in April as compared with March but with the level still below February. The report showed an increase ot 1.6 per cent in employment during April over March, and a gain of 4.5 per cent in pay rolls. Bhiployment declined 10 per cent during the year ended April 15, however, and pay rolls 21.9 per cent. "The increases in both employment and pay rolls from March to April are due primarily to a partial recovery from the severe drop that occurred between February and March because of the bank holiday," the report said.

Washburn- ——• W ALL STREET heaped humiliating criticism oh Arkansas last month for attempting to cut down the interest on her highway bonds so she could honorably pay it. Today Wall Street stands abashed—for one of her pet corporations is proposing the same kind of compromise on its debentures. I refer tosthe Associated Gas & Electric Co. , -O On April 14 1 quoted Barren's Weekly, Wall Street organ, as sneering at Arkansas because she had issued an "ultimatum" to her bondholders. Said Barron's Weekly: "The bondholders, it was adroitly suggested, would be better off with low-coupon 'live' securities than with bonds paying nothing at all!" Yesterday I received through the mall a press release from Associated Gas & Electric Co. advising newspapers to advise A, G. & E. security- holders of an impending default— and the "options" that A. G. & E. is proposing to meet the emergency. XXX Here arc the options: No. 1—You give A. G. & E. a $100 debenture, and they give you back a $50 debenture (It can be restored to $100 again ten years from now— maybe). No. 2—You agree to hold your pres- Saturday Is to Be Hope's Toppy Day' for Heroes of 17 Proceeds of Flower Sale Will Help Hospitalized Veterans WILL CANVASS CITY Legion Auxiliary Undertakes Annual Memorial Duty Saturday will be "Poppy Day" in Hope and through- the United States. red popples will bloom on millions of coats the nation over, in memory of those gallant American soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the World war. Each year <hc American Legion Auxiliary sells poppies as a means of aiding the living victims of the war, who arc confined, to hospitals, sick from war wounds and disease. Poppy headquarters in Hope will be the B. R. Hamm Motor company at Third and Walnut streets. Auxiliary workers will be sent out to canvass the downtown section. If you are missed by one of the workers, Mrs. Frank Russell, poppy chairman, urges you t^ call at headquarters. "••• * : The wearing of the poppy is no empty form, pushed to public acceptance by clever promotionl '• In,Flanders' Fields The idea «f wearing the poppy in memory of the World .war dead sprang up as natuitilly as the. little wild and Beligum. It took root in many other parts of the world, until the flower became almost universally recognized as a symbol of World war service. The little red poppy was one touch of beauty which survived amid the hideous destruction along the World war battle front. At the edge of the trenches, beneath the tangled barbed wire, about the ragged shell holes over the fresh graves it raised its 've blossoms. *" It was one immortal thing in that region where death reigned. The soldiers of all nations came to connect the poppy with thoughts of their dead comrades. Still Holds Meaning . Although more than a dozen years have now passed since the last man was laid to rest beneath the poppies, the flower lias lost none of ^ts meaning. Its beautiful symbolism still stands as the perfect tribute to the men who gave their lives in the cause of democracy. If your heart beats quicker at the memory of the deeds of America's heroic dead, place a bright red poppy of remembrance over it on "Poppy Day." m * • McFaddin Reviews Year for Rotary ^Retiring District Governor " Addresses Home Club Friday I* E. F. McFaddin told Hope Rotary club Friday at Hotel Barlow that during his year as governor of Arkansas Rotary, which closes July 1, he traveled approximately 15,000 miles and visited every one of the district's 40 clubs. The 62nd district comprises all of Arkansas except the extreme northwestern part. Mr. McFaddin complimentd the state organization for making the May conference at Hot Springs the most successful in history. At the 1928 convention there were 328 registered guests; in 1929 there were 358; in 1930 the total was 466; in 1931 it dropped to 290; in 1932 there were 350; but 1933 set a new record of 500. The district governor reported that the Hot Springs host club operated the conference session for a new low expense total, showing $221.75 profit, and permitting a 20 per cent rebate to participating clubs. President Carter Johnson of the Hope club praised the district governor for liis handling of the Hot Springs «vention and the conclusion of a ,-essful year, r.

No. 3—You swap your present debenture for a "Sinking Fund Income Debenture," whatever that is. And why is all this necessary? Here it A. G. & E's press statement, short and sweet: "Due to bank holidays, slow collections, increasing national and state taxes, and rate reductions, the persistent decline of business has forced the company to consider ways and means of protecting bondholders should conditions become worse." That's a straight-forward statement, pleading absolute necessity as the only grounds for violating the letter of a bond. That's all Arkansas ever told Wall Street when pleading for acceptance of her interest-reduction proposal on highway bonds—absolute necessity. Arkansas' "ultimatum" and Wall Street's "qptions" arc one and the same thing. XXX It is heartbreaking when people see their savings depreciated by the panic —but after all nothing is absolutely certain in this world. The most sacred nlp^tga^trj^pnd. i« in the lust analysis onty r a preferred -claim in a realm of rapidly changing values. We have seen state governments default, and big utility companies In distress. The embarrasment of our federal government is staved off only by the unshakable confidence of the people. Many readjustments are due as we come out of this troubled period. It would pay all of us to make the best of it, with decency and honor, and go on up the road. Even Wall Street, after due consideration, may accept Arkansas' "ultimatum," just as Arkansas citizens will probably have to accept Wall Street's "options."

Squirrel-Hunters Follow 2 Systems Younger Generation Employs Dogs—Oldsters Practice Still-Hunt WALUNT RIDGE, Ark. — (fP) Squirrel hunters—young and old—are back in the woods in this section in quest of the elusive little animal. Those who know their squirrel hunting are divided into two classes— the still hunters and those who hunt with dogs. The still hunter silently slips through the woods or lies in wait be- riind a mulberry or hickory tree and stalks his prey much the same as does a lion hunter. The hunter who uses a dog has some advantages and some disadvantages. If a dog barks on the trial, the squirrel has more time to hide and often is in a hole. Most of the young hunters prefer dogs and the old-timers the still-hunt.

Roosevelt Puts Life in Dying Arms Meet United States Awaits Action Instead of Words at the Geneva Conference GENEVA, Switzerland—(NBA)—To the Conference for Limitation and Reduction of Armaments assembled here falls the duty to translate into action the stirring appeals of President Roosevelt, Chancellor Hitler and other world figures on the crucial arms situation, i ; . For more than a year delegates from 60 nations have been in intermittent session in the Assembly Room, oc Glass House, as it is called. They have been making what is really, the first world-wide disarmament effort the world has even known, for of course the Washington and London naval treaties touched only that branch. Yet, aft^er a year of effort, the solid results have been pitiably small. ; It remains now to see whether personal appeals and support by rulers of the world will cause a change from the attitude of jockeying for each country's interest, to one of really accomplishing something for the world. That is clearly President Roosevelt's hope. Long Delayed ' It is a hope long deferred. For the arms conference now in session was projected at Versailles at the conclusion of the World war. - Definite promises were made the people of the world there that after Germany had been disarmed, the other nations would take definite steps to follow suit. Sponsored by League The United States took little part during the weeks of the change in administration. Then Norman H, Davis, the present representative, appeared on the scene and it became known that President Roosevelt would propose no "American Plan" but was most concerned that the conference should not fail. In mid-March came the British proposals, sponsored before the conference by the peripatetic Premier Ramsay MacDonald. He spoke earnestly and eloquently, but roused only polite applause from this world's coldest audience" with his plan. MacDonald's Plan MacDonald's proposals called a reduction in land forces all around, cutting like a million soldiers from Euo- pean budgets, restrictions in sizes of tanks, field guns, air forces, control of civil aviation, and rather vague plans for consultation among signers of the proposed 96-article treaty in case of trouble. The plan puts Germany and France on parity so far as number of soldiers under arms goes (500,000) but allows France 200,000 additional soldiers in her colonies, Germany none. It also would put all armies on, a miltia basis, like France's, dissolving Germany's highly-professional force. .(Continued on page three) Leonard, Smith to Face State Probe Treasurer and Highway Ex-Cashier Called by State Comptroller LITTLE ROCK— (ff>) t— Subpoenas calling for their appearance Friday afternoon before State Comptroller Smith, former cashier of the State Highway Department, They will be asked to testify on details concerning the cashing of $17,000 worth of old highway warrants Wed-* nesday.
