Federal Officials Accuste Arkansas Legislator at Sante Fie '"•SANTE FE, N.'M.—ffl 3 )!—The'name of Curtis Cannon, member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, was brought into* the trial of 10 defendants charged with lottery conspiracy Tuesday for the first time. Cannon is under federal indictment with the men on a charge of vTolating postal laws. The Arkansas legislator, government attorneys represpted, took. , some sweepstakes tickets from El; Paso, -to the East Texas oil fields, was' the lottery agent for Arkansas and had taken tickets from Texas to Phoenix, Ari.. where he expressed them back to the International Sweepstakes office in El Paso under the name of C. C. Coleman. Mention of Cannon's name also brought forth the first prolonged attempt of defense attorneys to combat federal testimony. Attorney Reed Holloman contended the government had been unable to prove that Cannon ever had sold tickets, had ever transported across state lines, or had ever used the mails, express or telegraph communication with the sweepstake office. In cross examination of witnesses, Hollowan attempted to show that Cannon did not know he had been listed on the Sweepstakes Association books as the Arkansas agent. R. T. Ames, Department of Justice agent from Oklahoma City, said that Cannon admitted to him that he had taken some sweepstakes tickets in a suitecase from El Paso to Phoenix, but said he "did so without intent to violate federal laws," and that in Phoenix he gave the tickets to a C. C. Coleman, who called and asked for them. Federal Agent Colvin said the government had searched for "Coleman" but had been unable to find that such a person existed. A motion for dismissal of the charges against Cannon is expected when the government's case is finished.

"And if some result has been achieved, we cannot forget that we attained it because all nations—first of all the United States—strongly supported this idea. Therefore, I may say that the truce is really an American-Italian idea." tha Jean Winburn were the gusts. The tables were elaborately decorated with huge baskets of Chrysanthemums.
