The particular fioal of thoso ^horsemen is a camp where 40 Indian men, women and children are sheltered only by five covered Zani wagons. They wiH have to find .the other scattered .camps on the mesas. More than 1000 Indians remain to be accounted for.

Laval Demands EqoajDebt Cuts France Must Have Reduction if German Reparations Slashed PARIS.—(/P)—There must be no cut in Germany's reparations unless a corresponding reduction is made in the war debts owed by France, Premier Laval told the Chamber of Deputies Thsurday, and France can not permit consideration of Germany's private obligations before reparations. The deputies applauded as he took this stand in a speech defending his foreign policy, an address during which he discussed briefly his recent trip to the United States. "The best way to cure this economic crisis," the premier said, "is by maintaining confidence in the given word of nations and respect for signatures. "I can understand Germany's mis- cry, but if France had been Germany's debtor what would they have done? I think I have a hight to talk like this without hurting the feelings of the German people." The trip to Washington, he told the deputies, was the best possible propaganda, since it was calculated to clear up misunderstandings in the minds of the American people. "They no longer think over there that France wants to dominate other peoples," he said. "They know what sacrifices we have made on behalf of disarmament. They don't suspect us any longer, for they know that France is thinking only of maintaining her own security." He did not pledge the word of France to anything he said.

Thes officials—George S. Milnor, general manager of the Grain Stabilization Corporation and E. F. Creekmore, general manager of the Cotton Stabilization Corporation—had full charcc of buying 329,000,000 bushels of wheat and 1,319,000 bales of cotton to maintain sinking prices. The committee, seeking new ideas on aiding the American farmer, wants to know whether the Farm Board is on the right taril. It has heard theboard's treasury has been lightened by "paper losses" at current prices of $177,000,000 and possibly $25,000,000 more on cotton co-operative loans. Milnor and Creekmore also will be questioned closely about the operations of the Farmers National Grain Corporation and the American Cotton Co-operative Association. These central sales agencies for hundreds of local co-operatives have received millions .of dollars in loans from the board. National farm organizations early served notice on the committee of renewed pressure in Congress for the equalization fee and debenture plans. They ask that the Farm Board be retained and equipped with these addi- tonal weapons. President Hoover is opposed to the debenture and President Coolidge twice vetoed the fee. When the committee concludes its hearings it will decide whether to sponsor a searching congressional investigation of every Farm Board activity. The farm organizations have urged one to "clear the air," confident the board will be stronger than ever. On the other hand, its opponents, including the American Cotton Shippers Association, contend such an inquiry would justify its assertion the beard is dangerous and is defying every natural economic law.

"You thought Allen was a crook about three months ago and what do you think of him now?" , The discussion grew heated. The judge contended that his support of O. K. Allen, Governor Huey'P.
