PRICB Water Pours Out of Brokeji Levees Inundating Crops 15 Breaks on St. Francis, Big Slough, Menace Northeast Counties REFUGEES IN TENTS J o n t e s b o r o C a 11 s o n Guardsmen for Housing for Homeless Families Wfundlng program, can show definite results in the con> solidatlon of state bureaus and the slashing of department appropriations —but the local side of economy legislation is lost. Most men are agreed that the last legislature was better than average. The men who went there as the chosen representatives of the people wanted to do the right thing. But other men would not leave them alone. ' Prominent among these other men were a host of county officials who gathered at Little Rock from *11 parts of the state and maintained a lobby which was successful in hacking to pieces the original county salary bill so that it would eventually be declared unconstitutional—and today it PARAGOULD, Ark.—(/P) — Hundreds of additional afcres of farmland in northeast Arkansas and southeast sotiri were being inundat- Monday as the result of breaksdn the St. Francis river and the Big Slough drainage ditch levees. Water is pouring through two breaks in the Big Slough Icvcc above here, flooding the lowlands; and at least one ndw break in the Missouri side of the St. Francis was reported Monday, bringing to 15 the total number of breaks, ranging from a few feet to 250 feet in width. Some families have been forced to" leave their houses. The Red Crass at Jonesboro planned to ask the Arkansas National Guard for 2(KMents for refugees from Monette. was so declared. XXX The upshot of this fight of the people against state lobbies conducted by tn'eir own county officers will be a wide-spread use of the same remedy found by the voters of Union county. Unable to Cope with a state ring, the Union county, electorate Initiated and passed a local salary law, which the supreme court has recognized as'valid. Next year, therefore, most of the counties of Arkansas will follow suit. After all, state economy belongs to the legislature, and local economy to the voters at home, ^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ U^^Ml^^W * ^^^^B ^^^^^^. .^^^^^^i. ^^^^^ ^^^^^& -^^^^^^^^^^^^^^- ''•^^^^^ .^^^^^l" *' ^ T^jy ITS ISOLATii County Salarf Act Declared Void flr .-.- ,V «'. Reduction Law Is Held "Local Bill" by Supreme Court Main Local Economy Effort of Legislature Is Lost Crimm Closes His 4-Weeks Revival 120 Persons Unite With Hope Churches at the Tabernacle 14 Breaks In Levees KENNETT, Mo.—(/P)—Lcvcesspn the St. Francis river broke at 14 places in Missouri and Arkansas Sunday flooding 5,000 acres in' Dunkjlnf cojinty, "Mp.»,Cand about 25,000 acrMpj^Atjtanr Not only was the river pouring huge quantities of water through the gaps, but water from flooded land in Clay and Green counties' in Arkansas poured back into the river Sunday with such force that it washed out the Missouri levees in four places. Total damage by flood waters of the St. Francis in Apri land May is estimated at ?1,000,000. Areas of land un- nksr water were estimated at 40,000 ijjjprcs in Arkansas and 8,500 acres in ••'Missouri. Engineers expect that two more feet of water will gather in the Cardwell- Paragould area. Thirty men patrolling the levees were marooned for several hours on the Missouri side of the water. They were taken off the levees in boats at noon. Sore Spot of Valley ' MEMPHIS.—(tf 1 )—The soggy, overburdened St. Francis river levee system collapsed near Bertig, Ark., early Sunday flooding additional thousands of acres and driving hundreds of families from their homes. The St. Francis river levee system has b?cn the sore spot of the Mississippi valley's flood fight since heavy rains in the Ohio valley put an addec burden on the Mississippi river. As the big river has continued to rise, its tributaries in the lower valley have been unable to discharge water from nusually heavy local rains. ^Thousands of unproductive lowland icres were the first to go under water Then the backwater pushed up over planted ground, destroying crops anc in many cases making the ground toi wet for replanting. Much of the lane covered by Sunday's breaks had been flooded before this year and then replanted. The crest from the Ohio valley water apparently had passed Cairo, 111., on its way to Memphis today, The United States Weather Bureau here said the Mississippi hit 51.8 feet at Cairo Sunday morning and was beginning to fall. A stage of 38.5 to 39 feet was predicted for Memphis by the latter part of the week. Harriman Found After Suicide Try Aged Banker Given Even Chance to Live for Fraud Trial 'f '•*Tfec HACKED TO PIECES County Officials' Lobbies Tore Original Bill to Bits 9 l-W'^--r-— -,' LITTLE ROCK—(7P)—Tho specific exemption of Union county from , its provisions was declared l^y'the Arkansas Supreme Court Monday to have invalidated, the entire general county salary act of 1933, except for two sections discontinuing publication 'of the delinquent tax land list. Union countyj was exempted from the salary-fixirtg provisions because it had last y&r initiated its own county salary law. •' The exemption- of Union county, however, made it a local act, and therefore unconstitutional, the court held. Eyangelist B. B. Crimm brought his revival meeting to a close Sunday night after preaching here for more .han four weeks. An overflow crowd .urned out Sunday night to hear his Final sermon -and to say farewell to the evangelist and his party. One, hundred and twenty persons made tneirway to •the' tabernacle altar expressing the desire to unite in membership with local churches since the evangelist issued his first'general call to the congregation, which was the night of May 5, Closing the revival the Rev. Mr. Crimm stated that all pastors of Hope churches would receive 'a list of names of those wishing to unite as members. Many persons joined .the various Hope churches during services Sunday. Seventy-three persons were received at First Baptist church. Evangelist Crimm spoke Sunday night on the subject, "Hitting in a Pinch, or the Knockout Punch." His sermon brought many persons to the altar, asking acceptance by faith. The evangelist and his party are leaving here for Brownsville, Texas, where he opens his next meeting. Child Killed, Four Injured With Gun 12-Year-Old Boy Stumbles, Slaying Sister, Wounding Others SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark.—(/P)—One child was killed and four were wounded, two seriously, by the accidental discharge of a gun here Sunday, it was learned Monday morning. Dale Kinsey, 12, was carrying the gun from the house into the yard to play squirrel-hunting. He stumbled and fell at the door. The gun discharged and his sister Helen, 10, fell mortally wounded. Ruby Harris, 16, and an infant she was carrying, were seriously wounded. Two others were less seriously injured. The accident occurred at the home of Dave Kinsey in view of Mr, and Mrs. Kinsey and neighbors. Decision Expected ' The invalidating of the county salary act of the last legislature had been forecast by opinions of the attorney general and decisions of the lower courts. , ; The aittorney general ruled some time ago that-the salary-fixing provisions of the "lifw were unconstitutional because separate calculations for each county made it local legislation, which is forbidden to the legislature. But he held, that since the delinquent land list was a statewide matter, handled in the same manner in each county, the killing of this publication was valid. Some of the lower courts clung to the opinion tthat irregularities in the entire bill were sufficient to cancel all of it—but the supreme court sustained the position of the attorney general. Blocked by Lobbies Collapse of the county economy move was laid .to a long and deter, mined fight between taxpayers' representatives in the legislature and lobbies of county officials which kept a watchful eye on Little Rock to see that salaries were maintained in substantially their present amount. The original county salary bill was so hacked to pieces, with special provisions for office-holders in eaeli of the 75 counties, that it was freely predicted immediately after adjournment of the legislature that it never would be approved by the supreme court. YORK.— Joseph W. Harriman, indicted banker who disappeared Friday from a private sanitarium supposedly with suicide intent, stabbed himself over the heart Saturday in Old Orchard Inn, at Roslyn, L. I., where police had found him a few hours earlier, suffering only from indigestion. Rushed to the Nassau County hospital, at Minrola, Mr. Horriman, scheduled to appear in federal court Monday was given an even chance to live. Doctors taid his wound was not serious in itself, but might prove so in the case of an elderly man suffering from the complications of diseases. FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: B»O.U.». PAT.Off.

Outlook Is Good WASHINGTON.— (IP)— Current reactions in cotton are regarded in authoritative sources as a natural and healthy correction of the market with a good character of buying on the decline. Poltical news continues to exercise potent influence. Sentiment favors cotton on the long view inasmuch as British and American efforts at the world economic conference are committed to price lifting. Brokers with close Washington connections were good buyers of October and December options. The market had under it' Saturday the steadying influence of textile activity. Usually when raw cotton declines the buying of goods is checked but the bulk of business at the close Saturday was done aji top prices.

Mr, Roosevelt has been re:. as holding no hope that any,, of Versailles Treaty Scored by Borah Must Be Adjusted to Achieve Peace and Pros parity, He Says WAJJHINGTON. — (/P) — Comparing Europe to a "smouldering volcano," Senator Borah Saturday night said the Versailles treaty was the "real obstacle" to success of the forthcoming disarmament and economic conferences. Speaking before the Women's International League, for Peace and Freedom, Borah, former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said that disarmament, and not debts, was the "supreme problem" facing the world.! But he warned that disarmament .could not come until there were "raMicial adjustments" in the peace treaties.
