WASHBUBN- ft . ft A MERICANS who look for further radical revisions in their banking system to help speed the recovery process, are doomed, I believe, to disappointment. -<•> The bankers are the only class polled by the Literary Digest lo show a majority vote against the Roosevelt policies, turning them down 11.275 to 10,045. There is no censure for the bankers in speaking their mind. Thus far they simply haven't shown the recovery that other lines of business have shown, and therefore they voted "No." Middle Western wheat and corn and hog farmers acted in very much the same manner, deserting the Roosevelt policies to a certain extent because prosperity didn't return overnight. Eastern labor, on the other hand, is highly pleased with results so far, and it is in the East, therefore, that the Digest shows Mr. Roosevelt so popular that for the nation as a whole today he is 4 per cent stronger than when elected. Quite obviously the bankers are out of step with the rest of the American business commuity—and yet I don't think the government purposes to do anything about it, for the reason that when you propose to do something about the banking business you are likely to find it is the sort of thing you walk into but have to fight your way out of. XXX Nothing makes me more tired than to hear some rattle-headed citizen without a dime to his name telling his neighbors that the American banking system is terrible, and that Canada or England have the only worthwhile system because the British have only four or five banks, and adminis- ler an entire nation with branches from these banks, It is true that we Americans have an extraordinary number of failures in the banking business—but you don't hear the Europeans talking about facts like these, for instance: United States and Canada were settled at the same time; United States devclbflea u'nde'r a' system comprising 12,000 local banks, Canada under a system of four banks with branches Showdown Near on NRA Price-Fixing; Rubber, First Case Battle in Tire Manufacturing to Involve All Industry TO FIX, OR NOT TO Issue Is Whether Industry Can Sec Rule for All Companies Copyright Associated Press WASHINGTON-(/P)-A major engagement over the issue of price-fixing is to be foughl out soon before the Federal Trade Commission, it was learned Saturday. Ostensibly, the dispute involves only the comparatively small interests of three rubber companies, but developments seem likely to transform it into another celebrated industrial case, which would basically affect NRA's price control powers. Several code authorities planned Saturday to jump into the case. The object of the bailie is lo determine an industry's right to fix or refuse to fix prices. Resigned Trustee Becomes Saenger Offers Trip to Hollywood ••-•• ' •" • "•"•' •••...•• 11 '• Harris, Ousted, Revealed as One Who Would Have Ousted Horsfall LITTLE ROCK — (ff>)— At the same time that Governor Futrcll announced •appoiiiuncnt Friday of R. L. Hyatt of Monticello as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Fourth District A. & M. Colleg, at Monticello, to succeed C. T. Harris, resigned, Mr. Harris made- public a letter to State Comptroller Griffin Smith in which he charged that the comptroller had withheld blanket resignations of all members of the board from the governor to "save the hide" of Frank Horsfall, president of the institution. In a reply to Mr. Harris, Comptroller Smith said the blanket resignations had been turned over to them for convenience, but that after Governor Futrell removed John W. Richardson of Warren from the board for cause without regard to the resignations, he returned the resignations to J. L. Longino, Pine Bluff, secretary of the board, from whome he had received them. Mr. Smith praised tne record of Mr. Harris as a member of the board, and added: "I am sorry that you are being influenced by prejudices and passsions to such an extent that you unconsciously subscribe to statements which are no correct." Mr. Harris reveajed in his letter that he had sought to induce the governor to accept the resignation of one member besides Mr. Richardson and to appoint someone who would vote to dismiss Mr. Horsfall as president of the school It was "reported that Mr Harris desired that the resignation o W. C. Perdue of ElDorado be ac- ceped because of Mr. Perdue's age and ill health, which were said to vent him from attending meetings Hope Girl to Be Given One of 14 Arkansas Awards Malco Theaters, Inc., Launching New Sales Competition CLOSES AUGUST 11 Local Winner Will Join Others in 10-Day Free Excursion Some Hope girl will join 14 others from Arkansas and Tenenssce on August 19 and, aboard a special Pullman will leave Litlle Rock for a 10-day, all-expense lour to the nation's film capital, Hollywood, .according to a joint announcement made throughout the state today by managers of the Malco Theaters, Inc., for whom Ar- Ihur Swanke is local manager.

FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: BEG. U. S. PAT. OFF, bank failures, Canada almosl none; but the United States today is the richest and most powerful of nations, while Canada has neither the population nor wealth of a single staU like Pennsylvania or New York. America needs more safely in her banking practices, but certainly she doesn't need a new system. It is particularly irritaling to hear branch-banking advocated as a part of some new Socialist America. No sane American thinks for an instant that a single banking structure could cope with the problems of the Maine potato grower, the Southern cotlon grower, the California citrus man, the auto-maker in Detroit, or the coal baron in West Virginia. Canada has tried the big-shot system—and while it hasn't been disastrous, there is mighly good reason to believe it has kept Canada down on the level of a bush league power. After all, the American system isn'l all bad. Bank failures were Ihe resull, not the cause, of the panic—and that's something we often forget. XXX Some idea of the dangers confronl- ing a nation which adopts the Canadian system in ils extreme form, is given in the June Hth issue of Barron's Financial Weekly. Il is Ihe story of Austria, which has finally wound Powder is a girl's ammunition to keep 4u arms. up with one bank for the entire re- j months' public.

This bank will no doubt finally merge the former competing in- duslrial companies lo stop competition among its own debtors.

Hope Program for KTHS on/Tuesday Local Music to Appear on Experiment Station's Half-Hour Old Veteran Kills Norsemen Self 87-Year-Old Soldier Fires as Tottering Mind Gives Way Evangelist Estes, who is conducting a series of meetings with the Church of Christ, West Fifth and Grady streets, gave an interesting discussion Friday night on the Bible and how to study it. He said: •The Bible is here in spite of men. It can only have one source. Either good men, bad men, demons, or God wrote the Bible. Good men say they did not write it, it condemns all bad men its purpose is to destroy the devil and his evil works. It can have but one source. God is its author. "It is the oldest book in the world. Enemies have sought to destroy it. It is stained with the blood of martyrs. It was begun by Moses in the deserts of Arabia and finished by John on the lonely Patmos isle. Between its beginning and close nations have appeared and disappeared and new ones have come into existence. "Man is a thinging being, and the Bible is addressed to intelligence. There was a time when the apostles did not need to study (Mat. 10.18.19; John 14:26), but toward the close of of the life of Paul he said "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman, that needeth not to be shamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.' The revised version says. 'handling aright the word of truth.' 'To rightly divide the truth is> to handle it aright." "The Bible is like other bonks t we must rightly divide it .Geography has two great divisions, eastern and western hemispheres. Each has two sub divisions. The Bible is divided into the Old and New Testaments. The Old is divided into law, prophets and psalms. The New is divided into bookb ABOARD U. S. S. SEQUOIA, Thames River, Ct.—•(#>)—President Roosevelt enjoyed a day of relaxation and pleasure watching the annual Harvard- Yale regatta from beneath a battered white fishing hat and then remarked Friday night: "I am going back to work Saturday." The president, who saw the Yale freshmen defeat the Harvard yearling crew in which his son, Franklin Jr, rowed at No. 6, spoke with a smile. The president got a thrill out record- smashing Harvard-Yale race, although he saw his alma mater defeated. Boarding his yacht after trailing the two teams down the four-mile course on the referee's boat, the president remarked: "It was a splendid day. I have been waiting for years to see the record broken. Today both teams broke it." He also intimated that there would be some new Saturday and this was expected to be vetoes of some measures passed in the closing rush of congress. The farm mortgage moratorium measure has not been signed, but Mr. Roosevelt's position has not been indicated. The president was up early and watched the two morning races from the referee's boat, Dodger III. Then ie returned to this ship and spent the afternoon with Mrs. Roosevelt, mem- besr of the family and friends until time for the varsity race just before twilight. The Sequoia was anchored throughout the day in the midst of a regular convention of sea craft at the finish line of the morning contests and just off the submarine base. Franklin Jr., who rowed a sturdy race at No. 6 on the Harvard freshman team, came aboard late in the afternoon with some fellow members of his crew. The tall, husky youth had given a good account of himself in the losing but close race and his disappointment was assuaged by the hearty handshakes and smiles of his distinguished father and mother. "They were both awfully good races," was the president's only comment after the morning events. ~Tr«rHot Springs Chamber of Commerce has extended an invitation to the University of Arkansas Fruit & Ttuck Branch Experiment Station at Hope to give a 30 minute broadcast over radio station KTHS Tuesday morning, June 26, from 9:30 to 10:00.

Secretary Ickes Hits PWA Delays Directors of Arkansas Projects Insist They Show Progress LITTLE ROCK —(/Pj- Arkansas applicants for PWA funds and state officials of the administration were put squarely "in the middle" Friday by a threat of Secretary of Interior Ickes, the PWA administrator, to rescind allotments "unless the recipients lake immediate steps to get their projects under construction with men on the payrolls at the job sites." Reactions were restrained and comments were guarded, but the general opinion seemed to be that Secretary ickes was waving a big stick just to hear it swish—at lueist so far as Arkansas was concerned. The records suggest that whatever delay has occurred in getting the projects under way may be traced, not to the applicants, but to the official red tape in Washington. Alexander Allaire, state PWA engineer, discreetly declined to comment. However, he furnished data on the status of the five projects threatened by Secretary Ickes, who complained that they are "neither under contract nor are they advertised for contract." The $96.000 Arts building project at Montiecello A. & M. College has been advertised, and bids will be received June 29. The $24,000 waterworks project at Mt. Ida has been advertised and bids will be recived July 5. The project was delayed several weeks by a clerical error in a Washington office. The ?50,000 building project at Henderson State Teachers College, Arkadelphia, has been advertised and bids will be received July 2. The bond purchase agreement for the $218.000 sewerage disposal plant at Hot Springs has been approved by the government and the city council and the final steps awaits settlement of a legal technicality raised at Washington. The $14,000 waterworks project, at Calico Rock has not been advertised. ATLTANTA, Ga.- Vienna Police Say ; Evidence Justifies a Murder Charge Europeans Complete Probe of Miss Tufver- son's Disappearance TORTURE CHAMBER Vienna Apartment Sheds light on Captain's Love Life VIENNA, Austria— (IP)— Bruno Barber, head of the international police organization of Vienna, declared Saturday that sufficient evidence had been discovered to support a charge of murder against Ivan Poderjay in the United States. He predicted that the ' prosecuting attorney's functions here would be limited to offering American police an opportunity to come and get Fod- erjay, who has been held here for the last 10 days on a suspicion of murder in connection with the disappearance of Miss Agnes Tufverson, American. woman lawyer of New York and Detroit. Torture Chamber NEW YORK.—Discovery of an elaborately furnished chamber fitted with ' implements of torture, in the Vienna apartment of Capt. Ivan Poderjay Friday cast further; light on the amazing career and character of the lover of v missing Agnes C. Tufverson. The room was a secret part of the flat which was not penetrated by Vienna detectives when they first searched the place. Its walls were covered with suggestiv photos and drawings and it contains chairs in , which victims could be confined while" they were mistreated.

The veteran shot himself .as an ambulance arrived for the superintendent. *Sjj sisted that Poderjay marry Miss Tuf- verson, pointing out that the "captain" and Mme. Ferrand needed funds; and that the American woman had money. The letters contained no reference to any plan to harm Miss Tufverson, but often repeated: "You marry her. Then if anything wonderful should happen we have money." Poderjay's letters to Mme. Ferrand, with whom he had lived long before he met the American lawyer, referred to Miss Tufverson as "an old woman." , Mme. Ferrand is held on a charge of having profited in a crime because she was fiund to be wearing clothing belonging; to Miss Tufverson. Reported Seen In Boston Before this latest devlopment in the international mystery came to light, the center of the sfc ge had shifted to Boston, where Miss Tufverson was reported seen twice recently. The information came from Ruth F.
