fAGESIX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, June 26, Poderjay Will Be ' ; Held for Larceny fc'Mfe Possession of American Woman's Jewels Is Evidence ^ NEW YORK— Indictments for per- jtwy and grand larceny against Capt. Ivan Ivan ovisch Poderjay, will be Sought by New York police Tuesday. 11 The perjury count is to be based an Poderjay's statement that he was tihifiarried when eh filled out a license to wed missing Agnes Colonia ISifverson. distinguished woman lawyer from Detriot, last December 4. J>osiUve evidence has been received from Scotland Yard, according to Capt John Ayres of the Missing Persons Bureau, that Poderjay marriS* Suzanne Ferrand, arrested with him Jast week in Vienna, on March 22, 1933. Hope of a larceny indictment is founded on Poderjay's possession of jewelry, luggage and wearing apparel belonging to Miss Tufverson when he and the mannish-looking Miss Ferrand were picked up in Austria. Both offenses are extraditable felonies on which the philandering ad- Venturer could be brough eher for trial. Unless an indictment is found soon Pcderjay will probably be freed by the Vienna police, who are holding him for suspicion of murder. Curtail Recruiting in U. S.

Vivian Maci Millan, pretty 22-year-old stenograph- | ei. Monday began telling n jury in [ Supreme Court of her relations with Alberta's premier, J. E. Brownlee, whom ?he accuses of wrecking her life. The face of the tall, slender girl was pale as she faced the man whom she and her father, Allan MacMillan | are suing for unstated charges on a j charge of seduction. ! She first met the premier, Miss Macj Millan said, when she was 16 and he I visited at her home an Edson. Two years later, in the summer of IMC. she said she attended a picnic j and a dance with the MacMillan fam- ian family at Edson. told her that had grown to be "a very beautiful woman" and suggested that she come to Edmonton where there was more j opportunity than in her native village. I In response to his promise of a gov- , crnment job, she came here and went to live at the Y. W. C. A., and there both Mr. and Mrs. Brownlee visited her and took her home to tea. She accepted their invitation to visit in their home at any time, Miss MacMillan said. The girl said she tried to break off the relation between her and Brownlee, but that the premier refused to allow her to do so. She told of a proposal of marriage by John Caldwell in January 1933 which was withdrawn when she con-! i fessed her relations with the premier. | i.he had not completed her story at the time of the luncheon adjournment. Mrs. Brownlee, a tall, grey-haired woman, smarly dressed and wearing a silver-fox fur, sat beside her husband in the courtroom. The girls charges were briefly outlined by Attorney MacLean. The evidence will show, he told the jury, that the 50-year-old premier took the girl on motor drives, told her his wife was a wife in name only, and for two and 1 a half years had intimate relations with her at his home, his office, and : during the motor trips. Carry-Over May Be Millions Good Chance That Cotton | Surplus Will Be Re- j duced to Normal { WASHINGTON — (#•)— Unless both ! Farm Administration officials and the weather change, wheat and cotton farmers are going to plant quite a few million acres more for the 1934 harvest than they did for 1934. The weather has co-operated almost tooheartily in the Farm Administration's effort to cut down the wheat surplus. The administration has-mote time to think about cotton. Planting for the 1935 harvest does not begin until next spring and any estimate of production this year would be a guess. The combination of the voluntary production adjustment plan and the Bankhead law, howevo% has trimmed acreage, final figures of which would probably be nearer 25,000,000 than 30,000,000. The average over the past five years has ben around 41,000,000. The Bankhead law set the number yield might pull he cotton surplus down to normal. In any event the maximum reduction next year under the voluntary reduction program is 25 per cent of the base average of around 40,000,000 acre., as compared to the 40 per cent aimed at this year. On the basis of present conditions the number of acres the Farm Administration may aim at next year will be somewhere between 33,000,000 and 35,000,000.
