jViday, June 22,. 1934 SOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Johnson Tells of Brain Trust Origin Only a Newspaper Wise- Crack—Roosevelt the Actual Director NASHVILLE, Tonn. —(/P)— Gen. Hugh S, Johnson Thursday night .wid, "There is n Brain Trust in Washington all right, but the brain is the brain of Franklin D. Roosevelt nnd the trust is the fnith of the whole Amei lean people." Addressing nn economic conference nt Georgia Penboriy College for teachers, the NRA administrator departed from his prepared speeck to attack criticl of what he termed President Hooscvclt's "research staff". "Whatever Brain Trust Franklin Hoosevelt maintains," Johnson asserted "is floing to be the trust of the best brains of u cross-section of the United States." He declared that what the administration's critics do not like is "the fact that the Brain Trust is not n 'yes' trust and a 'yes' trust their way." Johnson si id the term "Brain Trust" ' became popular because the American people, liked a catchword. During tlie 1932 prcsedenlial campaign, he said, Adolph Berle, Raymond Moley. Johncson and pevernl other friends of Mr. Roosevelt gathered at Hyde Park to discuss the situation. He declared that "some facetious newspapermen saw them and said, 'there's the governor's brain trust,." ."The devil of a Brain Trust that . was!" Johnson continued, but it shows the strength of u catchword." Silllarly he declared that reference was made to "cracking down" at iCn NRA press conference, "nnd Ibecame 'Crackdown' Johnson and there's nothing I can do about il."

Brown, of Fort Green, Pla.: "I have taken Black-Draught when I have felt dull from overeating or eating too hurriedly," he writes. "Small doses right after meals rid me of gases and heavy feeling. I am a great believer in Black-Draught." Thedford's BLACK-DRAUGHT Purely Vegetable Laxative "CHILDREN LIKE THE SSTBUP" Rock Not Shown on Nautical Map English Admiralty Conducts Hearing on Wreck of German Ship KOPERVICK KAKMOY ISLAND, Norway, — (/P)— Capt. Peter Moeller cf tlie wrecked German liner, Dresden, told authorities Thursday that tlie rock upon whic lithe Dresden struck Wednesday was not marked upon the English Admiralty chart being used to navigate by. Testifying at an inquiry into the | circumstances ofthe accident, which' damaged the Dresden so badly she I sank after 1.000 passengers had been I rescued from her, Capt. Moeller snid lie was depending on the pilot in waters with which he was unfamiliar. Pilot Jacobson, a Norwegian, informed the court that Captain Mociler , had not ashed him whether he had / a pilot"s certificate covering Ryslke | fjord. Previously Jacobson has assum- j ed responsibility for the disaster. Thursday he said that when it was decided to enter Ryslke fjord instead of following an originally proposed route he told the captain he did not know those particular waters. Captain Moeller told the court it was his opinion that Jacobs'cn answered yes when asked whether he had the right to make an alteration in course. He said that if he had known thatlhe pilot had no certificate for this particular route he would not have allowed aleration of original pliins. A report of the proceedings is to be sent to Germany. Heroism and the Scandinavian midnight sun were credited by the passengers and crew with the rescue of the excursionists from the sinking steamer with the loss of not more than four lives.

Christ's Warning af : False Prophets 1 The meeting being continued at the Church of Christ, West Fifth and Grady streets, continues with much interest. Mr. Estcs spoke Thursdya night on the question, "Does It Matter What One Bulieves?" He mentioned the fact that the young prophet for Judea, (1 Kings 13) who refused the offer made to him by Jeroboam, the king, believed the lie of the old prophet. "The theory that ia does not matter what one believes, is accepted in religion only. The belief of a proposition does not guarantee the safety ! of the believer. Jesus said, "For many i shall come in My name, saying, I am ' Christ; and decieve many." And many false prophets shall arise and deceive many." Paul said that he lived I in a good conscious while destroying Christians; that he thought he ought ( odo many things contrary to the name of Jesus. Christ said the time would come when men would kill you believing they were doing God's service. Paul prayed for his own flesh; "Bretheren, my heart's desire and prayer for Israel is that they might bo saved. For I bear them record that they have a - /.eal in God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness have not submitted thomsulves unto ther ighteousness of God." Mr. Estes speaks Friday night on "The Divine Library," and the public is invited to attend these services from evening to evening. Two Amendments Urged by Futrell Would Limit Appropriations, Submit Bond Issue to Popular Vote POCAHONTAS, Ark. — (/P)— In the first I'ddress of a political nature that he has made since he announced as a candidate for renomination, Governor Futrell urged the adoption of the two proposed constitutional amendments that he had sponsored in an address here Thursday. One of the proposed amendments would require a majority of the elected membership of each house to enact a law, would limit appropriations to $2,500,000 a biennium, excepts for highways, schools pensions and debt service, provided the limit could be exceeded in emergencies by a vole of three-fourths of the elected membership of each house. The other amendment would prohibit bond issue? for purposes othetr than refunding existing indebtedness except after the approval of a major^ ity of the electors of the state. Governor Futrell said that if the people would adopt these two amendments they would not have to worry about the financial condition of the state. He said that he had made few promises, but had kept those few. He urged the people ty caese to honor a man because he hojds political power but to honor p. man because he is justly entitled to honor for the good he does. "Get back to the standard set by the Bible," were the governor's words when he said that money is the root of all evil. The governor spoke at the Fourth district convention of the American Legion at Current River beach, seven miles north of here on highway 67. The first life insurance policy of which ther is any trace was issued in London in 1538. It insured the life of William Gybbons. Ex-Convict Says He Slew Dentist Harold St. Glair Arrested in New Orleans for Illinois Murder NEW ORLEANS, — (JP)~ Harold St. Clair, 30-year-old Ohio ex-convict, wanted in ElDorado, 111., in connection with the murder of Dr. Homer L. Myers, 55, n wealthy dentist, was arrested by officers on the streets here Thursday. Officers said St. Clair readily admitted his identity and said he would not fight extradition. City Detectives George Dillman and Joseph Vitari arrested St. Clair at an uptown street intersection just as the fugitive stepped from a taxicab. They said he told them, "I killed Dr. Homer L. Myers." He would say nothing more. The officers said they identified St. Clair from a photograhp appearing in the newspapers. Police say he was on his way to visit a woman friend. A poison powder was found in a handbag St. Clair was carrying, but officers took the poison from him as he was opening the bag. There were two loaded pistols in the handbag. One had three unexploded shells in it and two shells had been discharged. St. Clair said the Anderson woman who is being helcl by ElDorado police it innocent and knows nothing of the murder. Officers quoted St. CJair as saying that one of the revolvers found in his handbag was used to kill the Illinois dentist. St. Clair said he would waive extradition proceednngs in order to return to Illinois and face trial immediately.

Officials describe the program as tentative but the prospects are that it, or some modofication. will be substituted for the present series of emergency production control efforts. The growers may be asked to sign up next year. The scheme in that case would be effective for 1936, 1937 and 1938, carrying through the presidential campaign. Or if the farmers show sufficient enthusiasm, an attempt might be made to apply it in 1935, 1936 and 1937. The plan has been worked out principally by H. R. Tolley, University of California professor and now head of the Farm Administration's Planning Division. Here are the essentials: The producer would sign a contract whereby he would agree to put as much of his land into grass, forage and wcodland as the administration might direct. Benefit payments would be continued with the receipts from the processing taxes merged into a central fund. The farmers would be paid on the basis of the productivity of the land he retired from intensive cultivation. There would be few, if any, restrictions en the use of the land removed from the plow. It would be used for commercial production. rades, doesn't. He has always been the leader; now he's at the bottom of the heap, and the shock is too much for him.

It's unusual partly because it is so frank and outspoken, and partly because it begins as a hilarious farce- comedy and ends us a tragedy. It is by turns very funny and very comber. And it is, incidentally, a savage kick in the pants for England's decaying horsey aristocracy. Mr. Hooke tells about a boy and a girl, children of an English family which is very ritzy, but also very broke. The father is dreamy and self- contained almost to the point of lun- , acy; the mother is interested only in horses and hunting. I While their estate goes to seed and ' poverty arrives, the children are allowed to raise themselves. | Naturally, thus neglected, they grow up amoral and undisciplined. They j hav° no playmates, and they despise! their parents, so they rely on each other. • The boy is the girl's great idol j —the hero wlio can do no wrong and make no mistakes; and, despite poverty, they are happy enough. But finally, reaching their 'teens, they go off to school; and then the picture changes. The girl meets her new environment successfully; but the boy, unusad to discipline or com- ALL OVER THE WORLD BANANAS, Yellow Ripe— 3 Lbs ................
