Member to Face Court Charges Members' Prom Osceola, J. L. Williams, Is Defendant PAPERS WITHDRAWN Strenuous Efforts Made to Keep Allegations Secret Is Charged , Charges of collusion between J. L. Williams, member of the State Highway Commission, chairman of the St. Francis Levee District in Eastern Arkansas,, and president of the defunct Bank of Osceola, and N. E, DeCamp, superintendent of the Gravelle Construction Company of Osceola, were contained in a suit filed in chancery court at Osceola February 4, it has been learned by the Arkansas Democrat.

Gravelle, intervened in the action as plantiffs against the Bank of Osceola, J. L. Williams, N. £.. DeCamp, R. H. Bowden and the St. Francis Levee District. ' Papers Withdrawn Papers in the suit were withdrawn from the court, and efforts made to prevent its contents from becoming public. The Democrat, however, obtained a copy of the complaint. Every effort was being made, apparently, to smother the contents of the suit. The charges* as shown in the copy obtained by the Arkansas Democrat, however, were verified by E. E. Gravelle, junior member of the firm making the complanit. He told a staff reporter for the Democrat that additional exhibits would be filed later. That the suit mqy have far-reacht „ effects, was apparent. The state highway audit commission is expected to take, cognizance of some of the allegations, which if sustained may call for action by Governor Parnell. The complaint sets out that the con- struction'company .during 1930 and. 1931 had contracts for road work from the state highway commission and for levee work for the St, Francis levee board, ' ' ' ' • During •out DoCamp, ,wh'o. had charge Of affairs here for the Union Construction Company, which had the Slbeck con-; tract for the West Twelfth street paving district, was superintendent for the Gravelle company, and as such had athority to draw checks to pay expenses of operatnig the company.

Bowden en- terted into nn agreement that resulted in funds of the company, deposited in the Bonk of Osceola, headed by Williams' personal account. Notes and debit slips, unauthorized, also were charged against the company's accounts, the complaint charges. On September 24, 1930, the cashier of the bunk entered and charged against the account of the Gravelle company a debit slip in the sum of $2,005.40, and at the same time placed a like amount to the credit of Mr. Williams, the complaint charges. A copy ol the Sobit slip was made a part of the' complaint. On November 3, 1931, the St. Francis Lcvce board was indebted to the Gravelle company in the sum of $2,087.40. Mr. Williams, as president of the St. Francis district board, collected the account fr^> mtho board, the complaint charges, and deposited it in his bank at Osceola, On the same day, the charge says, Williams obtained adebit clip against the account for '$1,000 and transferred that amount to his personal account. The complaint sets out that on November U', 1930, a debit slip for $1,414.89 wns charged against the Gravelle company and a like amount credited to "Bowden Howell, which account, the plaintiffs believe and allege, wus a mere blind and that the sum of money was in fact finally passed to the defendants, J.

The rest was left to rumor, and there arc plenty dt them. , One is that n*new financing plan is being, or has been formulated. The rumor is not subject to confirmation, but repeatedly it has been suggested that the new Ford will be offered for $100 down, with twp years allowed to pay 6ff the balance. Whatever may',:.be tre specific plan, automotive met! are convinced any changes made will represent an casing of credit to potential buyers. While Thursday's long-awaited announcement served to clarify the atmosphere to a high degree, still another field was left open for speculation—that of price. There was no mention at all of what the new cars will seel for and the unofficial explanation was that prices will be fixed when production costs become available. There was a belief— no more than that— that tr e company hopes those costs wilt justify marketing the new eight at the price of the old four. Although the new Ford fours will not;be Introduced until about the first of March and the eights some time later, the quickening of the tempo in the' 'automobile and affiliated industries resulting from Thursday's an- ctedto come mush todenhamer Talks To Missouri Pacific Boosters Club Meet Gangdom's guns h^d added to their foil.

The suspect said he is Gilbert Eaddy, 40. No specific crardge lias been placed against him, but _ detectives said the more they question him the more they believe he is the man wanted for the feindish crime. Dorothy disappeared last Wednesday while roller ska.ting. She was last seen alive by a neighbor who noticed her talking with a negro who had a mole on the side of his face. A button which police said had apparently been torn from an overcoat was found beneath the child's body on the second floor of an unoccupied house. Two other suspects were also being held by police. They are Michael Mantycha, who lives less than 10U yard's from where the girl lived, and Arthur Jones, negro. •-»-*"«» Florist Is Convicted of Driving While Drunk TEXARKANA—Eugene Garrett. 68. florist of Texarkana, was convicted in llic Texas side District Court at Boston Thursday afternoon on a charge of driving an automobile while drunk, •and fined $250 au<J prohibited from driving a car for two years.

L. Jones, automobile salesman last September 3. The defense gave notice of appeal. Beck confessed the crime following his arrest in a Wichita Falls hotel and said he shot the salesman 'who had given him a 'lift in his car to obtain money and 1 received but ?2, Efforts wore made to show him insane as the result of a baseball striking him in the head in 1929. In contrast to the tears of members of his family, Beck heard the death verdict of the jury without a show of emotion. The stillness of the court room' that followed reading of the death sentence was broken by the sobbing moans from Mrs. J. J, Beck white- haired mother of the condemned youth. Two of Beck's sisters, who sat near her, also sobbed. The boy's father sagged in his chair when he comprehended the verdict, then he broke into tears. Court officials immediately called the county nurse who gave what com? fort they could to the women. Beck sat through the scene of sorrow without exhibiting any emotion. Members of the family of Jones, for whose death Beck is condemned to die, were present in the courtroom but they showed no emotion. Jones' widow, their son. Lee Jones, and several other relatives of Jones were in the courtroom. They left immediately for the office of District Attorney Willard McLaughlin. Members of the jury'were visibly affected by the sobs of the women of Beck's family as they broke under the strain. The jurors refused to talk about the verdict. In a few minutes, Sheriff Leslie Stegall cleared the spectators from the court in order to allow the Back family some privacy. Then Beck was taken back to jail. "This is the first jury to vote death ugainst 192 clients that J have defended," said Buck Wynne, Wills Point attorney, chief counsel for Beck. He appeared visibly affected.

Praises American Legion ' ' For the past .five years the American Legion has fostered through its -several units this same kind of a campaign for the purpose of educating the public Upon the loss which is being sustained annually by accidents of all kinds. "This year the Arkansas Industries Association, which is composed .of individuals and firms-interested in the progress, prosperity and well-being of Arkansas, has announced that a care- fullly planned safety first campaign would be one of its major projects for the year 1932. The men who compose this association and especially those men who guide its destiny, are sincere} unselfish and ambitious for the well-being of this great commonwealth; and they are, therefore, entitled to the support and confidence of all citizens whether they be members of this association or not. While the program of this association is a constructive one, and while many •phases of that prgoram are as important if not more so, than this safety first campaign, still I propose to discuss with you this one activity in the hope that we may see still more clearly the necessity of being more alert during the year 1932 than ever before. "The loss in life and in property, caused by preventable accidents, continues to mount year after year. While the railroads have; 'during the past 15 years, been able to reduce the number of their accidents and the resulting loss therefrom to a minmum during the year 1930, still the rest of American life has, during that same period, increased its list of accidents to the tune of about 298 per cent. It is not difficult .therefore, to determine the reason for the decrease jn railroad accidents as compared to'the increase in the sum total of all other types of accidents. The railroads set their hands and hearts to solve the problem. They educated their em- ployes. The whole system was on the alert. This safety thing; after all, is pretty much a question of alertness to certain rules and regulations. "The world today, and especially the people of the United States, is mad with enthusiasm, with the rush and hustle of business, and with the spirit of haste and reckless energy. We, as a people, do not stop to think ol the potential danger cf accidents. The railroads had to pay and to pay dearly for the loss of lite and of property which resulted from their early accidents; but the American people, as a whole, have not yet been brought to their senses, and every cons'ructive organization in America, can well afford to lend a hand to the task of bringing about a proper appreciation of this program through an educational program as to the enromous losses which W9 sustain year after year."
