This gave risp to a suggestion that the M-2, missing . since Tuesday morning, had been found, but confirmation from seach- U» of mine sweepers, search- missing submarine .with or their' bodies-located the admiralty repotcd. imperiled their Uves'in .re- icents, but thus faf,had been o reach bottom, living was „._ ie mtensliye search,.scarcely with a parallel In British naval hls-> tory, no trace had bean found on the surface water df oil bublea or anything that normally indicted a submarine is lying In the depths below. The rescue flotilla was concentrated to the west of Portland Bill, famous headland, around which sweep treacherous tides and current. The flotilla was commanded by Admiral C. J. C. Little, the admiral In charge of British submarines. Wednesday nglht one of the salvage officers said he had just about given up hope that any of-the men, would be brought up alive. But he added that much depended on whether the M-2 had been damaged and ifllcd with water. If her hull Is whole, he said, there might be enough air to keep the men alive for a few hours more. . Over in France an admiralty office man waiting for the captain of a coasting steamer to come In. It was reported the captain .had seen the M-2 had beendumager and filled with exercising alone in the channel. They had waited for hours in the fog and rain, crowding the water-front to watch the salvage vessel, but when night fell they went back to their homes. One of them, the wife, of the lop stoker, had a baby three days ago. All day long there were the rum- ora which always rise at times like this, They raised hopes for awhile, but all of them proved false, Once it was reported, that the submarine had been located in IT fathpms, far enough away from the treacherous Portland current to make the salvage work fairly easy. One newspaper even said there had been tapping on the hull, but the admiralty office said there was no truth in it.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.'-</P)- i -A ; young trust officer ^ ihc: failed Holstqn Louisiana to Stop All Highway Work Repeal of State'* Ban on Cotton Planting AUo Announced BATON ROUGE, L»-, Political jobholders were wondering where they stood Wednesday night after Alvin O. King, who followed Huey Long into the governor's office, had announced that funds were low and highway work would have to cease and the personnel be reduced. For nearly four years, the army of state employes had been on the increase under the Long road building program but King said they would have tg be an immediate halt until new bonds can be sold and that the market is too weak now for a sale. King said there would be a wholesale e*odus of highway employes as the p»y roll is too heavy for the money in sight. He also announced that Long had repealed the cotton planting holiday plan in a proclamation before he went to Washington. The cotton plan was adopted by the state legislature at a special session last summer &t the request of LoajJ. H died, however, other cotton states refused to wit. Wednesday how he .traced a' |i5,(X)6 check drawn on the company into the personal bank account of J. B. Ramsey, prseident of the trust company, and of the defunct Holston Nnlon- National bank. . '..... He was F. Curtis Allen, 28, 'whose testimony last March before the legislative investigating committee led to the prosecution and subsequent indictment of Ramsey In five cases charging misappropriation of state highway funds deposited in the Holston Trust Company. Allen testified that Ramsey drew $25,000 from $250,000 state highway funds deposited in the Holston Union' National bank to the credit of the trust company, an dplaced a $25,000 •note of the Knoxvllle Journal in the files, He said the note was signed by Ramsey as. vice president of the Jour. nal Company. The same date, August 18, 1930, according to the witness, Ramsey deposited $25,000 to his own account in the bank and the next day withdrew it In two $12,500 checks. The witness said the Journal note was later substituted by a $25,000 note of the Tennessee Publishing Company, publishers of the Nashville Tenessean. "Later," Allen testified, "Ramsey called me to the deck and said officers of the trust company had' criticized him for the manner in which he had handled the transactions. He told me he was handling it for Col. Luke Lea." Colonel Lea at that time was president of the Knoxville Journal Company, a stockholder In the Holston Union National bank and head of the Tennessee Publishing Company. Allen was rigidly cross examined by W. T. Kennedy, defense attorney, He admitted he went to the records of the bank on August 19, and found Ramsey had deposited $25,000 to his account the day before. "Why were you looking up the personal account of your president?"

Official Mentally Unbalanced Witnesses Say PINE BLUFF-OP)-Testimony that the suicide of a daughter, financial troubles and the marital unhappiness of another daughter had resulted in temporary insanity was given by, defense witnesses Wednesday at the murded trial of former County Judge C. M. Philpot. Philpot is charged with the murder of his son-in-law, Chester W. Taylor, former congressman, who was slam when he sought a reconciliation with his estranged wife who had returned to her father's home. A daughter committed suicide about 20 year; ago and he had lost large land holdings recently, witnesses testified. Several witnesses, including W. B. Alexander, defense attorney, and Dr. O, W. Clark, testified that they believed these trouble had affected Philpot's mind. Additional testimony to support the defense plea of insanity was heard at a night session. Believe Philpot Insane Dr. T, J. Cunningham, county physician and one of the two doctors who signed commitment papers to the state Hospital for Nervous Diseases the day of the shooting, testified "there there was no doubt in my mind that Judge Philpot was insane" at the time of his commitment to the state hospital. •Mrs. lola Philpot Dilliamsoh df Birmingham, Ala., a daughter who averted two suicide attempts immediately after the shooting, told of family troubles over a period of years which she said she believed had caused her father to become mentally unbalanced. She said she believed his mind had been "greatly affected" during the past two years. Mrs. Williamson was sitting just inside the house when Taylor was shot, an dit was she who gabbed the gun away from her father when he turned it uppn imself after Taylor was shot. She also prevented Philpot from cutting himself more seriously than he did with a butcher knife. She took the knife from him after he had clashed his wrists. Large crowds attended the trial at both sessions and the courtroom was packed to capacity. Many persons did not leave their seats during intermissions, preferring to eat sandwiches than lose their places in the courtroom. The prosecution introduced witnesses to show that the night before the shooting Mrs. Taylor telephoned Taylor to come and take her to their home that Philpot awaited his arrival ptchie Warehouse Only Advertised Cigar!'"• ettes Are Stolen in 10-Case Haul The Hope warehouse of Ritchie Gro- pier'company was raided by 'thieves Wednesday morning, who carried li :_.

(Continued on page three) Engineers Ready For Levee Work Improvement in "Sugar Bowl" Area Promised in Few Months WASHINGTON — (#>)— The House Flood Control Committee Wednesday heard from Maj. Gen. Lytle Brown chief of army engineers that his forces were ready to go to work immediately on improvement of levees on the lower Atchafalaya river to precent floods in the "sugar bowl" of Louisiana. The district engineer at New Orleans has approved the project, General Brown told the committee, and it now awaits indorsement by the Mississippi River Commission. The acute situation in the lower Atchafalaya basin was pointed out by Harry Jacobs, Louisiana state engineer who estimated that the raising of the levees as authorized in the Jadwin flood control plun could be effected in u few months at a cost of about $!•000,000. Jacobs said emergency work would avert the present danger within 10 days. He predicted that if some emer- gency'steps were not takpn the sugar bowl parishes would be iunudated within ihu n;-.xt month pr six 8,300,000 Jobless, Green Estimates U. S. Held Only Adequate Relief Agency; Senate Considers Aid Bills WASHINGTbtf — (#) — An urgent call for direct 'federal aid to the unemployed was sounded of the American Federation Of Labor. He estimated the number out of work at 8,300,000. "Only one agency—the federal government—can. meet the relief problem now that a.U other resources have been proved inadequate,"' he said. "By taxation, it can distribute the burden of this year where it can be borne with least injury to our citizenship." ..Green said a conservative estimate placed the proble average unemployed throughout 1932 at between 6,000,- OOOand 7,000,000 and that between $3,500,000,000 and $3,700,000,000 will be neecssary to feed, clothe and house those out of work "even at bare subsistence levels." Meanwhile, plans went forward in both branches of Congress for early action on the administration-opposed LaFollette-Costigan measure to appropriate $375,000,000 from the federal Treasury for relief work. Senator La Follette awaited a chance to bring up the measure for a Senate vote. Democrats have asked, however, that it go pver until Monday to give them opportunity to study the bill. There are reports they are contemplating offering a substitute providing for loans to states to meet unemployment needs. In the House, the Labor Cimmittee directed a subcommittee headed by Representative Jacwsen, Democrat, Iowa, to begin heartrjg tomorrow on the La FollettelCostigan bill. The Huddleston fail} to appropriate $00,000,000 for relief also wilj be considered. Green said the number out of work has been rising rapidly since October and that, although January and February are usually peak months of unemployment, ^relief needs will continue at unprecedented levels throughout 1932." "With city relief bpaking down, with private charity totally unable to mest the needs of the unemployed," he continued, "we are face to face with an unprecedented unemployment cris& "Already we arf hearing from bankrupt cities and, towns reports of unprecedented suffering they cannot meet.
