Enthusiasm for livestock development in this country has cooled off considerably r.incc raw beef prices hit their panic low.

Tortured Fresh Outbreak in Germany Likely as Revenge Is Feared Officers Take Over Rotary Club E. F. McFaddin Notes Political Speeches Expunged at Detroit Meet The new administration took charge of Hope Rotary club Friday noon at the first July luncheon meeting, J. R. Henry turning over the president's gavel to Albert Graves. Other officers who will serve with President Graves spoke briefly, as follows: Ed McCorklc. vice-president; Robert Morris, secretary; and J. K. Sale, treasurer. E. F. McFaddin reported on the Detroit conference of Rotary International, to which he drove in company with Mrs. McFaddin, later visiting the Chicago World's Fair and Mackinaw Island far up on Lake Michigan. Mr. McFaddin observed two unfortunate incident;; in the convention program, first an anti-Roosevelt speech by Mark .Sullivan, political commentator; awl then a pro-Roosevelt speech by Postmiister Jnines A. Farley. Mr. Farley's address included commnnts on foreign war debts owed the Unified Stales, notwithstanding the fnct that many citizens from those foreign countries were present as delegates to the convention. Mr. McFaddin, a past district pov- , , ernor of Arkansas Rotary and present jkichairman of the Club Service Com^ io oraniza- one lonp, story of farmers wearing out Eastern lands and then abandoning them to trek westward to virgin prniries acres. There is no more virgin land—today we must work where we are. Livestock is usually profitable in a farm area of low valuations. Since the cotton deflation of 1920-21, when improved farm land has declined below a collateral value of $10 an acre —and much of it way under thai- farm prices in southwest A.rkansas have moved back to where they were a generation and n half ago. Cheap land is one of the factors necessary to cattle-raising—and today we can qualify on. that score, and are likely to qualify tor Ax/me years to ome. The livestock business—particularly dairying—should advance in Arkansas Ihe next few years as it advanced in Mississippi just before the 1929 panic struck. These federally-shipped cattle offer an inspiration to a section whose particular trouble is that its farms are held to a crop system which makes them productive only about two-thirds of the year. Livestock may be a nuisance to cotton farmers—but it's worth-while nowadays to look about one to see whether today's nuisance can be turned into tomorrow's profit. Darrow's Review Board Abolished (]ay sponsors 3 Have Resigned, and Job Is Completed, President Notes of the international organization, touched in a speech at the convention on the ill-advised procedure of bringing political topics before a civic organization. The convention later ordered both the Sullivan and Farley speeches expunged from the record.

The Long-Walmsley battle has ecn- ced and re-echoed up and down the state since Walmsley's Old Begulars trounced Huey's candidates in the last mayoralty election. Senator Coleman Lindsey, Senator Long's administration floor ^ leader, ^ picked up a harmless bill Thursday W'allowing the city of New Orleans to remove houseboat squatters from Bay- cu St.. John, and tacked on an amendment which drew speedy opposition. The amendment would provide that the mayor of New Orleans appoint members of the city's police board WASHINGTON —(/P)— The National Recovery Review Hoard, formerly headed by Clarence Darrow, which made Hire critical reports on the influence of NRA codes on little businesses, has been abolished by President Roosevelt.

Eng.-(XP)— Technical collaboration from Great Britain in the event Belgium is ever invaded, is all that France is asking of England, and indications arc she will get it, the Associated Press was reliably informed Friday.

A formal protest to "the-German government was planned after the Nazi press had accused the laie Gen. Kurt von Schleicher of having dealings with France.) The killing of von Schlcicher, who in 1932 was chancellor for 58 days, was justifed, the newspapers insisted, on the basis of the "henious crime of entering Into negotiations with France thereby giving the idea to Paris that the Nazi system is not going to last." French Ambassador Andre Francois Poncet branded the charge as an "absurd fable" and protested strongly against the "great prominence" given the story by German newspapers. The ambassador was said by French sources to have promised when he called at Wilhelmstrasse Wednesday the German press would not be permitted to drag France into the matter. Hitler had accused some of the plotters with negotiating with foreign powers. Statement Recalled The German newspepers' articles accused von Schleicher, one of those executed by Hitler's men, of having dealings with France while he was chancellor in 1932. French Foreign Minister Louis Barthou was accused of revealing the von Schleicher plot to the British at Geneva in May, 1930. "Hitler's days are numbered." Bar- thru was repreesnted as saying. The French ambassador's statment, French sources said, were made doubly emphatic because he learned his name had been mentioned since von Schleicher was shot. The two men were said to have dined together within the past few months, and this was emphasized in some circles. The embasy declared that the dining had no significance as Francois Poncet had many friends among influential Germans. It was revealed by officials of the Nazi party that Chancellor Hitler's private army of 2,000,00 Storm Troopers among whose leaders the shots of firing squads fell thickest, is doomed. These officials confirmed reports that after the July vacation the place of Storm Troopers in German life will be greatly changed, indicating that 30 per cent of the men will be retained. Nation Uneasy The protest from France was only one of the number of harrassments faced by the Hitler government. The nation was apprehensive as reports were heard of disturbances and disatisfaction in the provinces—particularly in Bavaria and Silecia—and of new anti-Jewih movements. The economic difficulties of German farmers is another source of possible difficulty. Bethrothal Adds to Puzzle Further complication has been added to the San Antonio, Tex., marital tangle in which Mrs. "Winela Long AVclburn, upper left, is suing the Rev. W. D.

Crosnoe and Boyd are said to have signed confessions. Although Crosnoe is said to have told officers that he would reveal what would make a "damned interesting book," there were no other developments Friday. 25 Carloads of Peaches Shipped Rains in Highland District Improve Quality of Record Crop $1,000 Reward for Barrow Is Given Six Officers Divide Cash for Barrow-Parker Roundup AUSTIN, Texas —(/P)— Six officers who killed Clyde Barrow and Bonnie ___ .__ Parker, southwest desperadoes.

NASHVILLE, Ark. — Up to Thursday morning 25 car loads of early peaches had moved from Nashville this season, with more of the crop yet to move. The early pach shipment has already been more than the full season last year and there are still more to move. The movement by truck is equally as large as last year.

The price of the fruit is still holding up well, it is reported, the or- chardists being well pleased with the prices they are getting, both from the trucks and from, rail shipments. Rains all over the orchard district the first part of the week have already been a great help to the peaches, and with but littje more rain before the harvest opens about July 25 will in- hure the finest quality during the Elberta season.

Up to Thursday five straight cars of tomatoes, one mixed car of potatoes and tomatoes and three cars of potaties had been shipped from here.

Dyes, state elief administrator Friday issued the - ollowing statement in answer to ax- , icle appearing in Friday morning's Arkansas Gazette regarding an inves- ( • igation of the relief administration. , "I wish, to reply," he said, "to 1 an ( irticle appearing in the Gazette ( of Triday whereby charges are made hat the entire relief organization of, he state is being investigated and also , .hat I am building up a political organization looking forward to a campaign for governor or United States senator in 1936. Insofar as I am concerned, the en- .ire article is a mis-statement of facts. While it is true that Winthrop, D. Lane, Washington, Regional " FERA director and George D. Babcock, Regional Enginer, are in the slate, I riave no knowledge of any inquiries! being made into the activities of the' organization regarding irregularities,, "There has been a desperate effort on the part of many to bring the OP* ganization into politics. This being a campaign year in 'Arkansas,it naturally was supposed that this would be done. * ' "Under No Obligation" "Relative to my political ambitions, I wish to state emphatically that <I^ have none and that I was brought hv-'* to the relief organization through all- f ,, solutely no political source. I have the^t f", information that not a single, member of the pmgres^ional or senati delegation ttt Wasnfngtpnws ed regarding my appointment. I have' also positive information that the gov-i ernor of the state did not .recommend-'; me as a director for this organization.

"My only desire is to administer the relief program in accordance with the rules outlined by the national administration in Washington and to do as good a job as the people of the state will permit. < Probe Is Denied LITTLE ROCK— (/P)— W. R. Dyess, state relief director, Friday denied that the state Emergency Relief Administration is under investigation. The FERA at Washington said no investigation was being made in Arkansas. Dyess said the presence of Winthrop D. Lane, regional director, here gave rie to reports that an investigation is being made, but the visit is in connection with a change in the social department personnel, Dyess said. Probe Is Rumored LITTLE ROCK—Coincident with the transfer recently of Mrs. Gertrude Gates, assistant FERA administrator in Arkansas in charge of social service, a general investigation of the stale administration is believed to have been inaugurated. Presence of Winthrop Lane, field representative of the FERA, who has spent much time in the state during the last two or three weeks, supported belief that the general investigation was under way, although Mr. Lane said that his work was routine inspection. George Babcock, regional engineer for the FERA, arrived in Arkansas Wednesday and was in Mississippi county Thursday where a farm,rehabilitation colony is being established. It was said that Mr. Babcock hopes to inspect as many of the work projects in the county as possible.
