Hays Hurries Back to Movie Capital Film Czar Reported Worried Over Revolt Against Pictures HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -(&)— Without commenting on the virtual demand of. ;i leader of the intrfailh confer- unco uf New York that he resign, Will H.

Hays arrived in Hollywood unannounced Monday. He will remain a month.

Rainey nf Illinois, speaker of the National House of Rephesentaflves, who was the guest of honor at a luncheon here Tuesday. Speaker Rainey discussed the nat- ianal recovery program and relalci events which transpired in con grew during the formation and passage ol the recovery legislation. He concludes with the statement that "we all have a duty to perform In this emergency— we must keep the recovery program moving, and we must not let any self-styled leaders of the opposition gel to a position where they may wreck who I we have done and are doing." The situation facing the lust congress was compared to that during the wnr. when Speaker Rainey said the work of congress was aided greatly by the spirit of patriotism awl enthusiasm. He recalled that hem ado he closing debate for war about 3 a, m. April 7, 1917. "Things were different on March 3, 1933," he said. "There were no. flogs. The battle was a dull, drab fight against an unknown and dangerous war in which we have never been ongage- ed, and yet there are those who are seeking to wreck the machine of recovery. But the better judgment of our people will never permit us to turn the country over to them again. Speaker Rainey, referred to the "criminal inactivity" 6f the former administration and said, "we have set our faces toward the future.' The election two years ago was a victory for neither the Democrats nor the Republicans, he said, but was a merger and the merger has been made stronger by state elections since that time. "I'm wondering if the two old parties as they existed will ever meet a- gyin in battle. ''I believe that new par- lies will arise, of course, but their objectives will be greater liberalism than we are following today."

Hays has been head of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors Association since 1922 at an annual salary of $150,000. Hays went into immediate conference with leading producers in the film colony.. His statement follows: "There is but one answer and one answer only to the reasonable-objections to pictures, ;mci that is the pictures themselves. Tho solution of the problem of the right kind of screen entertainment rests solely with the quality of the product. The strengthened arrangements being perfected in the production code administration are directed to that end. "There is a very definite value to producers of pictures in certain phases of current criticism. Sonic of it may bo unjustified; some may bo onlirely unwarranted, all of it is understood; none of it is resented. "Tho screen has always been the .subject of constant controversy.

It was a plain attempt to make Special Court in Bank Case Named Governor Futrell Appoints Six Special Judges for High Court LITTLE ROCK — Governor Futrell appointed Tuesday six members of tt special Supreme Court to decide the Little Rock bank stock case, in which six members of the regular court dig- qualified themselves Monday because they had deposits in the banks affected. The regular court modified its summer recess order Tuesday to provide that the court should be in recess from Monday until the special court notifies the clerk it is in session. The original order was thai the court would recess until September 17 and that the case would be carried over until that date, but because of unusual, public interest in Ihe case, it was decided to modify the recess order to permit the special court to dispose of the case as soon as possible. Briefs have been filed and the case taken under submission by the regular court and it would have been decided Monday, if six members had not disqualified themselves. It was said that the special court probably would meet Monday to take the case under submission and thai a decision will be handed down a week later . Special justices appointed were: Thomas J. Gaugnan of Camden, in place of Chief Justice C. E. Johnson. E. H. Woollen of Hot Springs, in place of Associate Justice Turner Butler. Harry P.

Gang pictures offered a further avenue for rougher and tougher dialog, and the slapping and beating of women by cynical and hard-boiled underworld characters became commonplace. No one can calculate the harm that may have been done to present day manners and morals by this sort of presentation. They Forget Proportion Realism? Perhaps. But again enters ,the matter of proportion. You might think to see the run of movie productions during the last few years that there are mighty few decent people in the world. It just isn't so. In any event the storm of protest that has arisen is going to put a decided crimp in the .dirt-for-dirt's-sake sort of picture for the time being at least. For the future we shall see what we shall see. NEXT: What kind of break has the Medical Profession had in recent pictures? What Is a hospital anyway, a house of mercy or a seraglio?

Mississippi Votes Dry by Two to One State-Controlled Liquor Store Proposal Is Defeated JACKSON, Miss —(/P)— By a .steadily increasing majority, Mississippi voters Tuesday nighl had turned down a decision to repeal the slate's prohibition laws. With neary half of the stale's 1,596 preceincts heard from, representing every section, the May- Roberts Act, providing a state-controlled b'quor store syslem was trailing by over 22,000 votes. Relurns from 640 preceincts in 57 counties recorded 46,670 in favor of slate-wide prohibition and 24,429 in favor of repeal. Only one county, LeFlore.jn the delta, had reported a complete vote, showing a slight margin in favor of the state liquor control proposal. With all 12 precincts tabulated, the vote was: For state-wide prohibition 55, against 568; for sales in the county, 578, against 559. Joining LeFlore as a wet counly was Harrison, on the coast which gave a 164 wet majority in seven of its 32 precincts. The interior counties, long considered a dry stronghold, was running true to expectation by piling up sizable majorities. Madison, Scott, Lincoln, Hinds, Rankin, Lauderdale, Forrest and Covington, all relurned dry majorities from two to four lo one. Covinglon county, home of Cover- Conner who took the stump against the repeal proposal, followed the chief executive's appeal to "reject hard liquor by an overwhelming majority." Four out of the stale's 13 boxes gave 556 for state-wide prohibition against 174. With the city of Jackson complete, Hinds, the state's heaviset populated county, relurned a 9-5 dry. majorily. Two Mississippi river counties, Warren and Tunica, joined the wet column. Tunica, with all its boxes com- plele, voted wet 281 lo 94, while Warren, wilh 11 of its 20 perceincts in, gave 797 for repeal against 198 for state wide prohibition. Many voters were taken lo Ihe polls in .cars operated by prohibitionists. "Free rides for dry voters" was a salient feature of the prohibition forces' .drive to turn out a large vote.
