Employs Newsprint Engineers HERTY'S PROCESS Would Bring South 170 Millions a Year Lost to Foreign Nations SAVANNAH, Ga.—(^P)—The newsprint committee of the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association Monday announced it had taken active steps toward erection of a mill to manufacture newsprint from Southern pine. After inspecting the experimental plant here where Dr. Charles H. Herty developed th? process of making paper from pine logs, the committee decided to employ noted paper mill engineers to survey the situation. Thc survey probably will require from six weeks to two months. If thc report is favorable, the first mill could be 'finished, Hugo New lindustry Predicted The 'committee heard a prediction that a' plant to manufacture newsprint from pine would ba setabHshed largest cash balance toward the close of thc fiscal period that this fund has been able to show for many years. This is a case of good business man- igomcnt getl public office. Arkansas is closing n fiscal year Saturday night, June 30. and this statement from the comptroller under date of June 23 tells us it has been a mighty good year wit hthe state government. It's no mystery how the record was achieved. The Futrell administration when it took office thc first of 1933 reduced all departmental appropriations to a figure it was posilive that revenues would cover.

In a day when most governments are boasting of thc money they art- spending and thc debts they arc contracting Arkansas is telling the world that panic revenues are paying off the debts contracted in good times. XXX Every year American newspapers in the 'South In two years and thatT senc i ou t o f this nation 170 million the industry ii-ould fc-icg :.-.«.Tu than a billion dollars to Dixie annually. James G. Stahlman, publisher of thc Nashville (Tenn.) Baner and chairman of the committee, predicted thc industry would be under way in 24 months. Wspapcr made from Southern meet sail the tests of that made from spruce and it probably can be done commercially at ?G to $8 a ton lower cost," he said. Joining in thc sessions were William G. Chandler of New York, general manager of thc Scripps Howard newspapers and chairman of the American Newspaper Publishers Association Newsprint Committee, John Coffin of New York, of and the Hearst newspaper organization, an expert on newsprint. Tells of "Revolving Dollar" Francis P. Garvan, president of the Chemical Foundation, Inc., in a letter suggest:d consideration of a "revolving dollar" which lie said is worth up to 10 limes as much as Americans as export dolars. Mr. Garvan';, letter was addressed to Mordeeai Ezekiel of the United States Department of Agriculture and was in reply to reports that federal aid for establishing a newsprint industry in thc South had been opposed by Ezekiel. . ' "In your former letter you did, speaking for the Department of Agriculture;, turn thumbs down on the efforts being made to develop the paper industry of the South. "Further you slate: 'In my previous letter I took issue with your statement that all thc money spent on imported wood pulp was so much waste.' "I made no such statement. I did state: 'During the last four years the imports of wood pulp and paper base s^j^P.yjnto the United States have »'3lounted to an average of over $17,000,000 a year. This amount is roughly 70 par cent of our yearly consumption. This amount goes abroad and is lost each year and what we get for it (Continued on page three) FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: REG. U. S. PAT. Off.'

Over in Savannah, Ga., a courageous chemical engineer, Dr. Charles H. Herty. perfected a process last winter for making white paper out of Southern pine. You will recall that nine Georgia daily newspapers made a trial run on this newsprint; and it was declared successful. Thc Star still has on display at its office, 212-214 South Walnut street, copies of all those nine Georgia dailies printed on Southern pine paper. Today we learn that the Southern Newspaper Publishers association is proposing to back Dr. Herty in construction of a regular commercial mill for manufacture of newsprint. Representatives of Scripps-Howard and Hearst, the 'wo largest newspaper groups in America, indicated they would join in tne venture. This may be »he biggest industrial news in the mc<lern history of the South. All the millions of acres of Southern p'"c timber, particularly the young timber not over J<i years old, would find a brand new market, in the presses of America's 2,000 daily newspapers. Even a small paper like The Star today uses 40 tons of newsprint a year. All these years newsprint has been manufactured fronu Northern spruce. Southern pine had too much resin- content to make satisfactory white paper, the chemists said. It makes good kraft or brown wrapping paper, there being a big kraft mill at Camden, and several others further down the Ouachita river, at Monroe and at Bastrop, La. But now Dr. Herty has solved the riddle of resin—and a new market and a new day are waiting on thc giant forests of the South. XXX And this paragraph from (lie Minnesota Press: Why is a newspaper like a pretty woman? To be perfect it must be the embodiment of many types. It is always chased though inclined to be gaudy. It's form is made up. It enjoys a good press, the more rapid the better. It has a weakness for gossip. Talks a great deal. Can stand some praise, and is awful proud of a new dress. Every man should have one of his own and not be borrowing his neighbor's. Land Bank AitUs Urged by Futrell representatives from the following cities and towns: Hope, Warren, Hampton, Camden, Rosston, Waterloo, Willisville, Nashville and DcQucen. In a letter to A. H. Washburn, publisher of Thc Star, Mr. Ellison writes: Caravans Organizing "Have just talked to Bill Graham at Warren and he tells me that two cars will come from Warren, one from Hampton, and we will have three or four cars from Camden, and I am sure !:evcrul cars will conri from Waterloo, Rosston and intermediate points." Invitations were extended by Mr. Ellison to Mr. Hutchinson at Waterloo, Charles Ferguson of the Nashville News at Nashville, and State Senator Winifred W. Lake and Frank Steel of DcQueen, to head up parties from their respective comrnuities.

WASHINGTON - ionnl investigators that the anti-lobbyist ban slapped on n.s a result of the District of Columbia grand jury investigation of War Deparinenl purchases w;is too stringent. After hearing that the ban, the first tangible result of thc grand jury ftudy, had eliminated the Chrysley company from bidding for War Department business, members of the house military subcommittee said that they would seek temporary relaxation of the order. The committee learned from Maj. Gen. L. H. Bash, quartermaster general that all bidders on War Department business now had to sign affidavits attesting that neither they nor their affiliates were employing anyone other than a "bona fide established commercial or selling agency" , to "solid! or secure" the contract. Under the contracts in use before the affidavits were required, Bash | said, pcarent concerns dealing through rubsidiarirs could employ lobbyists.] If the government learned of it it could deduct from the amount paid to the contractor the fee paid to the lobbyist. Representative Goss, Republican, Conneticut, told reporters he expected to discuss the situation with Woodring and ask that the ban be lifted long enough for the War Deparmcnt to purchase several hundred trucks with a PWA allocation. wholesome, but the way it has worked out lias been restrictive. With Henry Ford barred oca use he won't sign the NRA compliance certificate and Chrysler ruled out because of the rcw requirement, the government can not buy light trucks from anybody but Chevrolet.

Hosiery Company, Hit by NRA, Close Harriman Mills Shut Down Following "Boycott" Penalty HARRIMAN, Tenn. —(/P)— The Eagle was taken away by the NRA Harriman Hosiery Mills, whose Blue last week for alleged violation of the hosiery code. Monday closed down its plant and threw 653 employes out oi work. T. Asbury Wright Jr., attorney for the mills, released a letter written to Administrator Hugh S. Johnson whicl charged that "we are convinced that through boycotting and every other means at your disposal you have set cut to wreck this concern." • "We would like to know," Wright wrote Johnson, "if the Blue Eagle is tlie property of the law-abiding citizens of the United States, or if he is a plaything to be held over the heads of honorable and decent employers as a cudgel to browbeat and bulldoze them into surrendering their constitutional rights for the benefit of outside agitators whose only purpose is to exploit labor for their own per sonal gain." The Blue Eagle was taken from the mills on recommendation of the National Labor Board which charged mill cfficials with refsing to bargain collectively with its employes.

J. R. Bertig, Paragould ginner,, enlivened the meeting with a declaration that the Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA) "was intended to help the farmer, but the ginner must be protected and at present this agreement isn't worth a darn." He asserted "an absolute agrement was made in Washington," but appears to have been changed. James A. Kennedy of the legal department of the AAA, presideing officer, interrupted to say that he believed Bertig's rererence was to C. A. Cobb, chief of thc cotton production section of the AAA, and thought that Cobb did not intend the agreement to be made a-contract until signed by the ginners. The code as proposed would require ginners to pay the growers "not less than 90 per cent of the average grade value of seed purchased." Henry Moore, Jr., Texarkana, attorney for the Arkansas Ginners association, objected to the section which defined "books and records" of gin- ners, which he contended would allow inspection of books not related to ginning when the ginner under inspection had other business activities. W. B. Bradshear, president of the association declared the proposed agreement would give too much power to representatives of co-operative associations.

Franks Convicted, Is Given 18 Years Found Guilty of Slaying 0. H. Dillon Near Little Rock April 29 LITTLE ROCK — (ff)— Earl Franks, 28, charged with murder .in connection with the slaying of O. H. Dillion at the Frank's home the night of April 29, was convicted by a circuit court jury here Tuesday and sentenced to 18 years in prison. The case was said to be one of the most unusual here in several years, because the wife of the defendant was the only witness to the shooting. The Supreme Court has held that a man't wh'e may not testify either for or against him in a criminal case, except where an injury has been committed against the wife or her property. The dying statement of Dillion was introduced and conflicted in many details with the story of the events which was related by Franks.
