Judge Howard O. Speakman sentenced her to be hanged. May 11 was fixed as the date for execution.

Shi charged that County Attorney Lloyd 37 Andrews had npt presented all the evidence in the case of the shooting of Mrs. Leroi and Miss Hedvig Samuelson. ' "These women were jiot .killed in bed," Mrs. Judd declared a moment before Judge Speakman set the date for her hanging. She maintained her composure and showed no. signs of nervousness. Judge Speakman stopped her several times during her argument. "You have been in California and Arizona in the hands of the police for months," the judge said. "H you had anything more to say than is in the records of this court, then was the time to have said it, not.now."

Rayburn, chosen leader of Garner's advocates at a rally in San Antonio Monday, telegraphed Judge G. H. Howard of Atlanta asking him to withdraw from the Georgia primary as a proxy for Garner. Howard filed Monday in the Roosevelt state, saying that if he on he would throw the state's vote to Garner at Chicago. "As a friend of John N. Garner and speaking for his host of friends," Rayburn's message to Howard said, ''it is my earnest desire'that you not enter the Georgia primary either as a proxy or in any other sense as a representative of Mr. Garner." In a separate statement Rayburn said: "Speaker Garner is not a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, although sentiment in his favor is developing rapidly throughout the country. "He not only has not entered • his candidacy in any state primary, but he will not do so. Of course, under these circumstances he would not enter the primary in Georgia through ; proxy."

Killing By Prohi Raider Justified Deputy Administrator Says Subordinate Slew Boy in Self-Defense HARRISON—Investigation into the fatal shooting Tuesday night near Pindoll, Searcy county, of Walter Kilburn, aged 18, by Prohibition Agent J. W. Ledbetlcr of Harrison, indicates tthat Ledbetter's action was in self- defense and unavoidable, it was said this afternoon by S. M. Gurley, Fort Smith, deputy prohibition administrator, in charge of the investigation, Mr. Gurley vsited the scene of the shooting today and questioned various persons. ' Kilburn was shot about 9 p. m. during a raid on n still, and died within an hour. A companion, W. F. Martin, was arrested during the raid, brought to Harrison and early Wednesday was held to the Federal Grand Jury on a charge of violating prohibition' laws, by United States Commissioner Isaac Stapleton. Truck Crops Show Decrease in Sevier Irish Potatoes Is the Only Acreage Increased This Year DEQUEEN, Ark—With the exception of Irish potatoes considerable decrease is indicated in the acreage of truck crops in Sevier county this year as compared with the acreage for the years 1930 and 1931. Estimates on Irish potatoes indicate an increase over 1930 and about the same as in 1931. According to Charles U. Robinson, county agent, the decrease in acreage in truck crops has been made up by an increase in food and feed crops, and the fewer acres are being givfii better care. It is thought that the orcbable production of 1932 crops-will be two or three times that of 1930 or 1931. The drouth of 1931 injured truck crop production in Sevier county almost as much as the drouth of 1930. and the quality of products shipped both years was not up to standard. Robinson said that it is reasonable to expect that with a normal season for 1932 the farmer will get greater dollar returns from truck crops, depending of course upon market prices. Robinson said that standardisation of varieties used in truck production as done much to make Servier county known as one of the leading truck producing counties. Carietics are used which are recommended by the brunch experiment station at Hope. Judge Fights For County Road Fund Attacks State Treasurer's Action in Paying Dis- ; 'TEXARKANA— County Judge J. Se well of Miller county late Wednesday filed suit against State Treasurer, Roy V. Leonard for $2,737.50, the amount recently withheld by Leonard to retire in part outstanding bonds on what is known as'tht Forest Park Improvement District, a suburb north of Texarkana. Sewell described the suit as his first move in a "finish fjght" against Act. No. 61 of 1931. The county judge declares that Leonard was short the amount named in the suit, because of having paid the bonds. If the act it held valid Miller county stands to lose approximately $10,000 -from its highway turnback t'und. County Treasurer W. J. S. Smith, Jr., joined Sewell in his fight against the act. Sewell's complaint declares that Forest Park is in no way connected with a county or state highway, and is not entitled to money which belongs to the Miller county highway fund. Validity of the district and its name also were attacked in the suit. The officials here declare that the name "Forest Park Improvement District No. 1" does not comply wtih Act 126 of 1923, and that its "correct" name is not valid inasmuch us the County Court was not in session at the time. Areport by M. F. Chestnut, local banker, shows that the district has bonds outstanding amounting to $121,304,19. This certified report has been filed with the state treasurer at Little Rock. Sewells action . Wednesday was prompted further after he learned that County Judge Ross L. Lawhon of Pulaski county and Prosecuting Attorney Carl E. Bailey of Little Rock have started a sweeping investigation of Pulaski county improvement district bond payments. Corporation Tax Filings Unchanged Present Law Pemitting Single Return for Subsidiaries Approved WASHINGTON -(/P)- The House Ways and Means Committee Wednesday reached its first decisions of the new tax bill and agreed that one feature of the present law should remain unchanged. This was the section authorizing corporations to file consolidated income tax returns for themselves and their subsidiary or affiliated companies. Two more administrative clauses remained to be written before the committee could vote upon the proposed tax on a selected list of manufacturers. They were proposals to repeal the provision allowing credits on foreign taxes paid by American enterprises and to modify the capital gains and loss tax of the existing revenue law. Under the decision announced Wednesday by acting Chairman Crist after a closed session of the committee, interests with subsidiaries will be permitted to continue filing returns on jont profits fur the corporate tax.

WASHINGTON.-, (/P) —The $12,000 salaries of Farm'Board members were singled out Wednesday for the-first successful Senate move for pay cutting. The Civil Service Committee approved a bill by Senator Borah, Republican, Idaho, to knock these salaries down to $9,600—just below the $10,000 level of members of Congress which the committee refused to reduce. The committee also approved an amendment by Senator George, Democrat, Georgia, limiting salaries of all employes and officers connected with Farm Board operations to $15,000. This hits at some of the highly paid officers of the stabilization corporations. It was diclosed at the Senate Farm Board inquiry that salaries ranging as high as $50,000 and $75,000 are paid to some. TKe George amendment would prohibit loans by the Farm Board to stabilization corporations or co-operative organizations paying salaries of more than $15,000 to officers. The bill still musj, run the gauntlet of the Senate where a sharp fight over the whole issue of salary reductions is in prospect.
