RELIF PLAN (Continued from Page One) earn from 30 to 90 cents a day when they can get woj-k and one-room huts arc the rule. The wealthier class is small and until subsistence homesteading arrived 80 per cent of the land was owned by fewer than a score of people. Despite poverty and squalor, the islands are almost entirely tree of serious time. For months they haven't had a man in jail. No one remembers when tho last murder trail may have been. The three big islands get along with but 13 policemen. Empty jails arc in part due to Governor Pearson's policy of law enforcement by education, involving leniency for minor offenders and plenty of probation. Pearson's idea is to make the islander's one big happy family. Wealthy landowners dislike him because he is opposed to special privilege. Helped with U. S. Money The annual contribution by Congrcs to meet the island's deficit has been about 350,000 lately. The first homesteading propect began under Hoover in 1931, when $100,000 was appropriated for land purchases, including the site fop a tourist hotel at St. Thomas. Recently the Subsistence Homesteads Division added J46.000 for housing, to follow the land program. Within the last year about ?500,00 in relief funds and 51,300,000 in PWA money has been allocated. Virgin Islanders will also be among the beneficiaries of the AAA sugar control program. j Homesteading has boon so successful to date that more land will be acquired and subdivided. Homesteaders are reaping their fij-st crops this year. But is was necessary to capitalize industry if a large permanent relief program were to be avoided. The answer to that is the Virgin Islands Co., incorporated with $1,000,000 of PWA money to buy up the island's largest sugar plant—long abandoned—acquire the necessary cane land, produce sugar and rum, nnd operate the new hotel at St. Thomas for tourists. Farmers Get Aid About 4,000 acres of cane land will be bought and dwivided among hundreds of farmers on the subsistence homesteading sasis, the company to buy the crops. Farmers and factory workers will be given a liberal return and profits will be used for more homesteading, housing and other phases of the social-economic program. The famous St. Croix rum will bo marketed again. Meanwhile, tho St. Croix colonial council has forbidden shipment of any green, cheap rum to the United States. Other features of tho island's program include slum clearance, old-age pensions, and unemployment insurance, revival of cotton growing, improvement of the bay rum industry, crop diversification, educational extension, and fostering of haandicraft industries.

Yeah, I was back there next week. XXX The palmy days of the movies went out, the financiers said, when .sound came in. Tho financiers, as usual, wc-e wrong when confronted with a technical change in industry. Financiers go by logic—and logic in business isn't nearly so good »s a first-class hunch. The late E. W. Scripps, who built the Scripps-llow- ard newspaper system, once said: "Reason leads men astray in business—instinct rarely does." Hunches start new business and build them up; logic alone maintains them for a while, then lets them die a respectable death. It was the hunch that all America liked action-drama which built up the silent-motion-picture industry. It was the logic that because New York stage plays were successful on Broadway and to a very limited extent 'on the road" in the larger inland cities, that therefore they should appeal to the gigantic provincial audience of the old silent picture days— it was this logic which bankrupted Hollywood. Today's hunches will revive the movie industry—which logic killed, and censorship threatened to bury. Banker Harriman Is Given 4*/2 Years New Yorker Sentenced f01 1 3-4 Millions' Embezzlement NEW YORK —UP)— Joseph W. Har. rirnnn, once affluent and powerfu figuere in the fanincila world, was sentenced to serve four and one-hall years in prison Wednesday. The 67-year-old former head of the closed Harriman National Bank, convicted in federal court of making false entries in the bank's books, appeared more cheerful than many in the dingy court room. Judge John C. Knox's voice broke as he concluded a long explanation of the seilcnc? with these words: '•Each of us in the face of adver sity must stiind steadfert, and this message must tgo to everybody in a position of public trust." Harriman's win. in black, was a Unef-slrickon ?it!;ue; his doui'l'tcr, Mrs. Boykin C. Wright, wept. Harriman only compressed his lips, staring blankly at his lawyer. Ho was ronvi'jied of falsifying bank records to the extent of 51,713,225 and misapply-ntf approximately 5000,000. Harriman, convicted June 19, after a long trid 1 . in which Peggy Hopkins Joyce and CorMimce Talmage testified against him, was sentenced after two physicians tc*M:«;d briefly regarding the condition of his health. One doc'or s^id he would be unable to stand cxi vt:'.'n and tho ordinary rigors of prison life might result in a serious heart attack. The second testified that Harrrran is suffering fr,m dctcrioratiji of the central nervous system. If the scorn that is .'.o bo settled here, concui'r'nrj only Har'iman and myself, I fool certain that I should respond to the sympathies I feel for members of his family and their loyalty," said J'jilp.e Knox. "Unfortunately for Harriman and myself, I am curtodlan of the trust o* the public. A law has been flagrantly vioiatcn and the dcfmcjar.t has received a ttU'l as fair as I know how lo make it," "I must thin!: not only of his age and his unrloubled illness, but of his house of card:? that fell about him. I must think not only of his depositors, hut of the depositors of each and every bank." Charley Parker Here on Auditor Campaign Charley Parker of Stephens, member of a widely-known family of Arkansas printers and newspaper men, came to Hope Thursday in his campaign for state auditor. Mr. Parker was in Texarkana Wednesday, and spent all day Thursday renewing acquaintances in Hope and Hempstead county.

The report of his safe return was telephoned by his wife to police a fev hours after a guard had been withdrawn from the home to give the supposed abductors opportunity to contact the family. Sciacca said his abduction resulted from a case of mistaken identity despite the fact that a few hours before he returned an attorney representing the family said he believed the reputed kidnaping was done by the cafe owners' "friends." The return occurred only a short lime after Attorney Samuel Wcxler, representing the family, issued a statement saying...hc was certain Sciacca was kidnaped "by his friends" and making an appeal for them to contact him. In prohibition days, police said j ity to see the grape experiment and ' many other valuable tests with fruit, truck and field crops on the station on visitind day, Friday, June 29.

The ballot box is to be under lock and key at all times, and will be opened only when the judges count the votes each week.
