RYA,N expressed the feeling of millions of ?}jfe fellow-countrymen very aptly in his recent testimony ^ ,!ore the Senate committee which js debating the advisability? of • setting up a national economic, council. *'p "The most discouraging fact about our very grave un- mployment situation," he said, "is the indifference to hu- nan suffering exhibited by our public officials and influen- 'al classes. • '* "They all seem to assume that .their duty will be performed it none of the unemployed dies of actual and quick "^rvation." "A great many Americans Have surmised the existence of jat attitude, but have lacked the ability to put their resent- ent into words. Father Ryan has done us all a service by locusing attention on a thing that is, as he says, the most dis- wraging part of the whole business. Russia in Movies E theatrical magazine, Variety, reports that Hollywood studios are preparing to concoct a number of movies deal- with Russia — and are doing ervousness and uneasiness. it with a good deal of It is the difficulty of steering a safe middle course that iwses the hesitancy. On one hand, the studios have no de- jre whatever to issue films that could be construed as propaganda for the Soviets. On the other hand, their executives fear that if the pictures displease radical groups in this coun- iy the theaters that exhibit them may get into trouble. There ia undoubtedly a tremendous amount of interest in his country, in Russian affairs today. But the movie-makers just experiencing what newspaper and magazine writers, i&te and novelists have gone through already; the ex- difficulty of presenting the truth in an interesting r without being accused of propagandizing for one side the other. Hoover's Navy Stand 'IPHE5RB is probably little doubt that the sentiment of the i* ^4 majority of .Americans lines up with .President Hoover in ,f, rf .hjs argument with the officials of the Navy League. The league's desire to see the American navy made strong and kept at the highest pitch of efficiency is, of course, perfectly understandable and reasonable. But in its bitter at- wck on the president, the league seems to have revealed a brand of big-navyism that would make the navy a sacrosanct institution beyond the reach of budget chiefs or the presi- States. He is the counsellor of th-a legation and in the absence of the minister is charge d'affaires. Yung rtwai held that Japan flag' rantly ^violated sacred treaty rights ,;by a wanton Invasion. .,,,„ ^KBtsujl Debot^hi h£ld that H was ?»' matter only 'of minor Concern and .strictly bkween' : the;<;vrapanese -and Chinese. ; ' * * * TT must be disconcerting for •*• Secretary Stimson, on Debuchi's daily pop-ins at the State Department. Stimson has taken the thing pretty seriously. Perhaps Debuchi is more serious when closeted with the secretary than he is .outside. But it was Debuchi who cabled Tokio and, in effect, advised his government not to be so darned snooty and dignified as to vote cgainst letting our representative sit in on I'/.o league's Manchurian deliberations at Geneva, Mr. Debuchi, his feet high from the floor as he sits in his swivel chair, tells you Japan was only Interested in protecting "lives and property." Then he stops an'd grins more broadly than ever and says in effect: "How do you like them for apples?" You automatically think of the State Department's old explanations of marine expeditions' .Into Nicaragua and Haiti and you Imagine Mr. Debu- chi meant you to think of it. Then he speaks of the Manchurian dispute as a "regional afiulr" and implies it was nobody's business except China's and Japan's. He stops again and winks. And you realize that, without saying so, he is etill 'drawing a deadly parallel with American, military operations under the Monroe Doctrine. Ypu sympathize with what must have been the embarrassment of Mr. Stimson at having to meet that sort of argument. you say you know he Is very * busy and will be getting along now and, he bounces from his chair with the protest: "I am never busy. And (more chuckles) I never worry!" The first part of which, at least, is a fib'. If the Tokio government hadn't the greatest confidence in Debu- chi he would hardly have been In a position to urge it to reverse its position at Geneva in regard to.American representation. Few ambassadors would have had the confidence to do that. Premier Shldehara of Japan JT -has, never been In'China. Debucljiijfndt only served there, but was head, of the Foreign Office division which deals with Chinese affairs. He was about to leave -his post here when the MancUurian situation arose and, he was kept here to handle this end of it. ..One can only guess as'to,, whether"Debu- rhl's efforts were"'.what kept this government from vigorously .,proi testing Japanese acts in Man< churia. • r Debuchi wears .the 'dark,^conservative dress of .an Ame'rican ntsiness man.and his recreational lobby Is golf. Mme? Cebuchj also has abandoned oriental styles, orders her dresses from New: York and wears American shoes— which she admits hurt her feet a Ereat deal. * * « UNG KWAI has been here longer than auy other diplomat. He has seen a procession of Chinese ministers come and go. Otten, as now, he has been in charge of the legation between he departure of one and the ar•Ival of another. He was one o£ he first Chinese students sent lere by the Manchu government to be educated, and he was in the lass of 1884 at Yale, He was at the legation when the famous Minister Wu Ting 'ang was appointed, and he was jere to greet and bid godspeed to Wu Ting Fang's son, Dr. Chao- Chu Wu, the last Chinese minis- er, whom he had known here in .he latter*s childhood. He remembers when the Chinese had he most popular legation here; when it was a show place full o£ bizarre interest to Americans. No diplomat Is more urbane and ourteous than Mr. Yung Kwai. 3ut during the Manchurian crisis his responsibilities weighed heavily ipon him and he was neither as bulllent nor as talkative as Japan's Mr. Debuchi. Do You TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO Mrs. Smith, wife of Agent Smith, of the L. & A., has returned from a visi to friends and relatives in Texas. B. P.

TEN YEARS AGO dent It might be fine for the United States to maintain the ;" world's greatest navy. Bui funds are scarce this year, and t- "fiveiy government department must take a cut. The navy * .mu2t get along on less money, and there is little seme in k accusing the president of "abysmal ignorance" simply bet ,-HZUM he insists on that fact. Mrs. Dan Pittman, gf Frescott, was a Hope visitor yesterday. Miss Mabel Ethridge is visiting in Little Rock, attending the State Teachers Meeting, which is in session there thie week. A party of boys and girls in the younger crowd were entertained with a rook party Wednesday evening, with Miss Mary Margaret Anders as hostess. The guests included Misses Mexir.e Kellv S by] Watson, Snow Me- ' Larly; Otc'.s Colli-is, Evan Wray, I. T. Bell, Jr., and L.e iUe Griffith.

According to Menzies, who is ranked as the leader among the newer school of "impressionistic background" art directors, the symbolical Settings used in "The Spider" are the most llustrative examples of the new form /et ot come out of Hollywood. This is particularly noticeable In the tage set ,the main scene of action in he.; unique drama which takes place entirely'.upon the stage and • in' the aisles of a modern theater. The dom- nating motif, in which Wiles followed losely the ideas of Menzies, carries iut a combination of a spider's web nd a sorcerer's tower, than which no more suitable setting for Edmund jowe's,,a.ctivties as a magician could well be imagined. Menzies is still young enough to be isted in the new order of motion pic- ure workers, but his artistry has been leaned through years of experience nd from accepting what the old or- er had to give. When he did the ettings for "The Thief of Bagdad',' ls;first work of outstanding merit, he •as then''only a few years removed rom-'making labels for red tomato :ans to pay hi wsay through a life class a tart school. Before that, he iad attended Yale. His advance into a directorial capacity was made possible by Fox Films, who signed hi mto co-direct "Always oodbye," with Kenneth McKenna. fhe success of that Elissa Landi ve- licle earned for the team the direc- ion of "The Spider," based on the sensational stave play. That's Different Freddie and his beloved came to a field where stood a ferocious looking bull. "Are wo going across?" asked the young lady, Freddie looked at the angry animal and shook his head.

Eicape Jail LiNCOtN, Neb.-*(/|f>)—Nebraska officials Monday-revealed gangland was willing to speritl $W,000 for the dismissal of a bank ; robbery charge against August ("Ous*') Winkler, who State Attorney General C. A. Sorensen said was a lieutenant at "Scarface Al" Capone. fhe authorities have not decided what to do about the offer. Winkler now is free on a f 100,000 bond pending trial in connection with the 42,500,000 robbery 6f the Lincoln National Bank and Trust Company September 17, 1930. He has offered to buy from the thieves $600,000 worth of the bonds stolen from the bank and return them If the charges are dropped, ( Winkler said he and his friends, presumably Scarface Al Capone nncl his allies, would spend $75,000 of their money to get the negotiable securities. He said he did not participate in the hold-up and os an alibi asserted he was In a Buffalo (N. Y.) hotel the day of the robbery. Phil d'Andrea, bodyguard of Capone. visited Winkler in jail here while he : Was arranging the bond. The proposal now is before County Attorney Max Towle Who frowned on the offer, but said 'It-Would be several days before he could'make a thorough investigation of the alibi and reach a definite decision. "If Winkler is guilty he will be prosecuted at any C6st, irrespective of whether the stoleri property is returned," Towl«.sa!d; "If I'm satisfied that lie Is innocent, I've got-the courage to dismiss the complaint fegardless : Of whether we get the securities back. Towle said Winkler had not told him that Tom Slattery, killed in Maryland last April, had particlpaetd in the robbery. Winkler claimed he was held because he resembled Slattery. Sorensen said there was no doubt Winkler was conected with the Capone organization and by this means had located the $600,000 worth of securities. The names of persons holding the bonds and of Wlnkler's friends and attorneys were not revealed. Gov. Charles W. Bryan announced the state should make no "compromise with crime." "The state of Nebraska has been humiliated," he asserted, "by having it published to the .world that such proposition was even being considered." Sorensen said- the return of the bonds should not be "sneered at." 1 "Six Nebraska banks had their entire capital stock in the Lincoln National bank. One has failed and others may'fail if the securiites are not returned," - . '• . • The $600,000 worth of bonds represents all except $30,000 worth of the negotiable securities taken in the robbery. Sorensen said Winkler informed him and other 'officials at a-con- fernece in Chicago that the nonnegotiable securities had''been burned and that approximately $25,060 in cash and the other negotiable securities had been divided by the robbers.

Col. Isaac N. Lewis Dies Unexpectedly Inventor of Machine Gun Made Millionaire by Crest Britain HOBC-REN, N. J.—(#>)-Coi. isadc N. Lewis, aged 73, Montclnir, N. S., Inventbl' and scientist, whose Lewi* machine guh gun was an oiiWtandlrttJ weapon In the World war, dW ; ttf a heart attack late Monday in ft drul store adjoining the Lackamanna Ml- road terminal., Colonel Lewis was talking with an old. friend, Emerson Brooks, founder of the national organization of ; flay Rangers, while waiting for a train home when he collapsed nncl died bc- t'cre a physician could reach his side. He had been trotibled with a weak heart for several years. fhe British government was quick to utilize Colonel Lewis' machine gun but he experienced years of difficulty in obtaining rcoghltlon for it by the United States War Department. A test by the American air forcees finally convinced the War Department Of Its acceptability. During the World war more than 100,000 'Lewis machine guns were used by the" Allied armies, and at one period during the fighting the British government detached 500,000 men from active duty to train them in the use of the weapon. At one time Colonel Lewis made a dramatic appeal to the Senate Military Affairs Committee and wept as he described his rebuffs by the War Department. He was so distressed by the attitude of his own countrymen that he contemplated for n while remaining away from the land of his birth. The adoption of the gun by the British brought him millions of dollars in royalties. A graduate of' West Point in the class of 1884, his interests in engineering were directed towards the field of 'ordinance and One of the first things he invented was a depression range finder for use in artillery firing. Tests were made and a Board of Ordinance and Fortification in 1896 advised its general adoption ;by the army as a basis, for. the elaborate system of artillery fire Control later .Installed in •Jl American:coast' defenses. <3 , in buymq., you save in *nq Am..
