Choice of Senator Up to Committee Session Tuesday State Central Body Con- 'venes at Little Rock a t2 p. m. ONLY TWO" MISSING First Test of Strength When Committee Successor Is to Be Named LITTLE ROCK—(/P)—Almost a full attendance of the Democratic State Central Committee in a, meeting at which the United States senatorial nomination will be made was assured shortly before the clmmittee were to assemble at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Only two members are known to be represented by proxies, they are: Secretary J. H. Andrews, of Wynne; and Mrs. F. J. Hixon, of Turrell. The first test is looked for when a successor to the.late E. J. Kerwln of Pine Bluff is selected. Hurley Culpepper Pace and Jo Nichol, a banker friend of Governor Parnell,. are being' mentioned for the place. ,. ; Convict Caught After 8 Years The grey-haired Fennsylvanian, who 1 has been mentioned.' as a presidential possibility, assailed the relief program of the administration as inadequate. He spoke his views In an address before the District of Columbia League of Women Voters. During the day, leaders of several liberal organizations met to discuss unemployment on the eve of the congressional session. They also criticized the government relief efforts. Norman Thomas, 1928 Socialist presidential candidate, said "The so-called progressives in Congress have failed." Analysing current economic conditions, Pinchot said "concentration of wealth had reduced consuming power" had increased production beyond the limits of demand. The result, he added, was the recent economic slump. He took issue with the administration's reported plan for sponsoring a selectee! sales tax as a means of meeting the Treasury deficit. The Pcnn,- sylvanian called for higher income tax rates on the larger incomes to solve the deficit problem and that of unemployment relief sa well. This scheme would affect him personally, he said, as his income tax return falls in the higher brackets. "But I am willing that the government shall take more of my income, rather than that millions should suffer from want and hunger," he continued. "I would be glad to see more of my estate appropriated in taxes if it be used to help set this nation on its economic feet," , Federal relief was described as the only possible answer" to the question by Finchot, who added, "federal aid in this depression is our clear duty and our best hope of prompt and permanent recovery. . "Those in high places have continually insisted that a national emergency be met with local aid alone he continued. "They have left it all with the exception of a bit of benevolent advertising to the states and communities themselves." He said Community Fund chests "would not be sufficient to meet the needs of the winter" even though full quotas were raised. Contending property taxes'constitute "the most exclusive source of income" for cities the Pennsylvania executive asserted "in short local relict of this kind means an increase in property tax, either now or very shortly. "Local relief means taking the poor man's pay," he said, adding that taking money from the small wage-earner through voluntary contributions or taxation would "start no factory wheels." In the absence of congress, he continued, the nation has been committed to that program. P.-T.~A. WiU Present 'Oh Professor' Tuesday Night The showing of "Oh, Professor," a Broadway production, will take place Tuesday evening at the new high school auditorium, on South Main street, beginning at 8 o'clock.

Ware Founded by State in 1926 Five years ago today ,the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture Fruit and' Truck Branch Experiment Station was established near Hope. The station, wlhich contains 195 acres of typical Southwest Arkansas soil, is now one of the best arranged and most ntractivc horticultural stations in the whole country. In addition to the 20 buildings which have been erected to house workers, scientific laboratories, livestock, commodities, and machinery, the station has been permanently equipped with fences, roads, drainage, and other facilities necessary in properly conducting experimental work. Five years is a short period of time in the life of an experiment station, but the institution at Hope has already made some very valuable find- Ings, which can be profitably applied to many of the farms of South, Arkansas states G. W. Ware, assistant director, in charge of the station. Three and four year results on the various truck and field crops show that certain varieties are twice as prolific as others; that certain ferlili-/.nrs yielded a good profit while others lost the farmer money; and that one method or date and rate of planting is much superior to another. The average farmer hasn't the time, money, patience or facilities to experiment with most things. That is the job of his experiment .station. Results of the experiments on sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, watermelons, cantaloupes, cucumbers, tomatoes, grapes, small fruits and the other fruits which have come into bearing, can be obtained by writing the office of the Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment Station at Hope.

Rain Benefits Crops But Damages Roads PITTSBURG, Texas. — The recent heavy rains here have been beneficial to wirier pastures, but have put roads in the rural districts in bad shape, almost impassable, and sonic damage has been done to rolling farm lands and terraces.

Columbia Court Case Is Decided Can't Restrain Process of Co-ordinate Court, Ruling States LITTLE ROCK.—(/P)—The supreme court held Monday that a judge has no power to restrain processes from B court of co-ordinate jurisdiction. In so holding, the supreme court granted a writ of prohibition to restrain Chancellor George M. Lecroy and J. Y. Stephens of the seventh district from enforcing a writ restraining the sheriff of Columbia county from impounding property involved in a claim of O. A. Reed 1 . S. G. Wright and others obtained an order from the circuit court staying the judgment of the Columbia county Court in paying Reed $368 on his claim, and Reed obtained an order from the chancery court directing the sheriff not to impound the property, "When a chancellor or circuit judge has jurisdiction iri a cause pending in his court and issues a writ," the opinion said, "the other court of co-ordinate jurisdiction would not have the right to interfere and prevent service of the writ. If this practice were permitted, it would create no end of confusion and the sheriff would not know which judge to obey." The supreme court held that the question of the'sale of the municipal lighting plant of Little Rock must be submitted to the voters. The city council authorized sale of the plant to Burke Smith for $10,500, but City Collector James Lawson refused to release the propert yto Burke after petitions asking that the question be referred were filed by taxpayers. The Pulaski circuit court refused to granl Burke a writ of mandamus against Lawson, and the supreme court affirmed it. R. E. Dent of Faulkner county won his appeal to set aside a receiver 1 ;, sale of his large plantation, the supreme court reversing the case with directions to the Faulkner chancery court to order that another sale be held. The court's opinion said the receiver, G. W. Adgisson, by unfair means prevented Dent from obtainins money to carry out a contract by which he was to sbid $39,000, the amount remaining unpaid to his creel iotrs, at the receiver's sale. Dent al ready had paid $30,QOO to the receivei Woman Freed in Death of Her Former Husband CLEBURNE, Texas.— (fi>)— A distric court jury'Sunday acquitted Mrs. Ma?

Ackerman, a dry Republican, have declared themselves for modification of the Volstead act to permit .manufacture and sale of light wines and beer. Democratic state leaders, including Governor-elect A.'. Harry Moore, have taken an, active part in the campaign of their party's candidate, Percy H, Stewart of Plainfield. His program asks repudiation of the national ad- rriinistration. Moore, compaigning for governor on a similar platform, ran up a plurality of about 11,000 votes in the Fifth dis-. trict in the state election early this month. Donald N.

PlayinT"The*ater" Ends in Shooting; Man Held Evangelist Again Beaten in Missouri Recently Acquitted of Libeling School Teachers at Newburg SPRINGFIELD, Mo.—(/P)-Paul M. Bennett, Newhurg (Mo,) evangelist, against whom charges of libeling Miss Olive Warner, a school teacher, recently were dismissed, reported to authorities Monday that he had been beaten unconscious by two masked men who dragged him from, his car while he was en route home from Springfield. The beating was the second the evangelist has suffered since coming to Newburg. He was injured in a fist fight with a deputy fish and game warden last July. Authorities expressed' belief that Bennett's failure to leave Newburg after the criminal libel charge against him was dismissed, led to the attacks upon him. Mrs. Bennett said he had received threatening letters. They said the evangelist had agreed to leave in advance of dismissal of the case. He was charged with issuing circulars deflaming Miss Warren and C. C. Kilker another Newburg teacher, by accusing them of drinking. The teachers were cleared by the Board of Regents of the Southwest Missouri State Teachers College here and em- pli.yecl for »n " | burg schools.
