PRICE 5c 001 BLOCK DAKOTA LEGISLATUR Here and There -Editorial By ALEX. H. WASHBUBN- N ORTH DAKOTA'S angry farmers mill around the capital city of Bismark. Governor Langer, idol of the radical Farm Holiday association, has been convicted by a federal court jury of grafting on federal relief funds, and is deposed as governor. Lieutenant Governor Olson rules in his stead— and the Farm Holiday association proposes to do something about it. 150 Attend Rally of Co, 4-H Clubs, Experiment Farm Spring Hill Sends Largest Number of Boys and Girls TO STATE CONTEST 16 Members to Represent Hempstead County at Fayetteville More than 150 4.H Club members of clubs in Hempstead county attended a rally at the Fruit & Truck Branch Experiment.

Early this month he was again nominated by the Republican party for governor—not. withstanding the shadow of a federal penitentiary sentence. Here is a real crisis for American democracy. Sober-minded North Dakotans will discover, as true Americans always discover, that ours is not a govern, ment by Hollywood popularity contests, not a government by men at hil— hut a government by law.

The witnesses by whose testimony the defense seeks 1o establish the claim of a "frame up" on Allen were Wallace Davis, Los Aigeles lawyer; Dr. Robert Lunsen, n dentist and Allen Garcia, who, during his 25 years in the film business has been an actor, director and producer.

Well, look; we've got pretty good roads in this state and at night they get nice and cool. Our cows like to walk and sleep on them and if you speed you're going to disturb somebody's herd. You might even kill one of 'em. We suggest a nice comfortable speed of about 20 miles an hour. Then you can stop even if you come on a cow unexpectedly around a curve. We have a lot of curves you know. Almost one for every cow. In these parts we still remember how one fellow came around a curve and kijlcd Old Jed's best jersey.

Not Blackshare An intimate friend of Blackshare's came here, viewed the victim and said positively that he was not Black, shart. Questioned again Friday the victim rubbed his fingers through his hair and said he thought his name was "Chism". He could not remember his given name. Ho still maintained that he lived in West Texas, but could give no name of any West Texas town. He could not remember how or when he got to Hope. Offered cigarettes, the man said he did not use tobacco in any form. He produced A. knife, one ..handle, of it •worn to the metal, which he said Jie had possescsd for five years. Held for Identification Officers said they would continue to hold him in jail, hoping that his memory would return and that he could be Identified. Authorities prepared to take his fingerprints as they sought information which might lead to his identification. Apparently the victim is satisfied in a cell. He sits with his head buried in his hands—trying to think. Officers hope if he remains quiet a rest will restore his memory. His description: Age about 40. Weight 160 pounds. Height about 6 feet.

WASHINGTON — The heights and the depths of America's fabulous movie industry were revealed Thursday by Sol A. Rosenb.'att, NRA administrator in charge of the movie code. Listing the salaries paid to the biggest stars and box office favorites, Rosenblatt rcvaled salaries as big as a king's ransom and wages lower than a shopgirl's. Estranged Young Husband, Suicide Russellville School Romance Ends Two Weeks Later in Tragedy LITTLE ROCK —(/P)— Despondent over an estrangement from his 16- year.old wife of two weks, William Clay Hodges, 23, killed himself Friday at the rear of a store where he was employed. Hodges left two messages, one for his wife, and another for his parents. His wife is the fanner Miss Beckie Wilson of Russellville, who is now with her parents. Hodges attended Polytechnic school at where he met his wife. One star last year drew $315,000 for acting in a single picaurc. Seves other topnotch box office favorites, two of them drawing $10,000 a week while 1 they worked, had total pay checks last year ranging from $200,000 to $296,250. They were the royalty of the movielant. But rubbing elbows with them on many a set were "extras" the plebiatis of Hollywood, whose average pay last year was $9.34 per job. As chief of the NRA movie cole, Rosenblatt used hisdtsclosures as the basis for arguing that the movie industry must "rationalize" its salaries. He wants stars, directors, tcchniians, and artists paid a perentage of the box recipts of their pitures instead of the The rest o fthe workers and execu- flat salaries now being given them, lives in Hollywood, Rosenblatt would put into ategories with definite salary limits to prevent exhorbant salaries. He also reommended the reatior of a board role over movieland's sal- -aries and finanicaj practices. Rosenblatt, however, found the salary control measures drafted into the existence of the movie code unwork. abbe. He recommended that their suspension be continued. President Roosevelt suspended these provisions when lie proclaimed the code, but rapped the the fantastic salaries of stars and mcvie magnates. Two actors were paid at the rate of $25,000 per week, the highest wage listed. The two $25.000 stars earned only $91,666 and $76,666 respectively during the year, indicating that they each worked only about thre weeks out of the year. A hundred actors, cxcutives, writers and other nabobs in Hollywood received salaries last year higher that Russellville that paid President Roosevelt, $75,000 per year. ABOARD CRUISER NEW ORLEANS Accompaning President Roos- ovelt— (/P)— The Navy dirigible Macon made contact with the cruiser Houston carrying President Roosevelt to Hawaii 1200 miles off the Pacific coast Thursday. In a series of spectacular maneuvers by the airship and her planes, papers were dropped aboard the warshi. Heralded by two of the planes which the dirgible carries, the Macon arrived over the Houston shortly after noon. The planes guided the Macon over the Houston. As the planes Hew back into the body of the Macon the president sent the following message to the airship: "The president compliments you and -your planes and your fine perform-. ance and excellent navigation. Well done, and thank you for the papers." The Macon soared away, and within an hour disappeared headed for her base at Sunnydale, Calif., the cruisers Houston and New Orleans, carrying the presidential party and accompan- ing newspapermen contiued on to Hawaii. While awaiting arrival of the Macon, cruising through alternate sunshine and rain from Sunnydale, Calif., the president worked on a selection o new federal appointes. He gave particular attention to rail road affairs, to looking over names for the new Federal Mediation Board and the Railroad Retirement Board which will administer the new pension act. The president received reports of progress of strike negotiations on the West Coast. The Houston pulled off hurriedly from the New Orleans to head into the sea to steady the ship for an emergency appendicitis operation. The patient was reported in satisfactory con. ditnon dition. At the request of the mother of a" unnamed sailer, Mr, Roosevelt received the seaman and congratulated him on his excellent service record. Members of the presidential party were guests tonight of wardroom officers who put on a long-planned din- Unified Air Force ^Opposed in Report Mitchell Proposal Rejected—But Building of Planes Is Urged Copyright, Associated Press . WASHINGTON.-Creation of a unified air,force—one of the most hotly contested, questions in American aeronautical policy—is opposed im the report just made to Secretary ,Dern by the special Aviation Committee headed by Newton D. Baker, former secretary of war. The committee said that its three- months' study of American aviation problems showed the United States was second to no other nation in aeronautics. The committee said that, since the United States' Military and naval aviation have developed to their pres-* ent status through separate army and navy Air Corps ,it would be folly to make a radical change. More Planes Advocated The report also said the Army Air Corps lacked sufficient fighting planes for its highest possible wartime efficiency, and recommended immediate construction of more combat and attack planes. The Army Air Corps has between 1,300 and 1,400 serviceable planes. The Baker committee found the ratio of training, observation, transport and other non-fighting types was so high as to reduce drastically the Air Corps' fighting effiicency. It is estimated that although the United States has more planes, this country ranked below Japan in fighting planes and on an approximate equality with Great Britain. Strength Compared The world air powers are estimated to rank: Russia and France, 3,000 planes each; United States (including army and navy), 2,800; Japan, 2,500, and Great Britain, 1,400. The announcement in London today that Great Britain would construct 41 additional squadrons of approximately 500 planes would bring that nation ahead of the United 'States in air fighting forces. The recommendation against creation of a unified air force, along the same general line as Great Britain's Royal Air Force, will bring up anew Fish Are Dying in Lower Red Lake 45,000 Pounds. Estimated Poisoned by Drouth- Soured Moss Poisoned fish are dying--in great numbers on lower Red lake, southwestern Hempstead county, it was reported here Friday by Earl Barham, game and fish warden. Fish, estimated to weigh 45,000 pounds, have died within the past week, due to a long rope.like moss which has turned the water green and poisoned it. Due to the lack of rain, the lake has dropped below the moss, which turns sour and produces a poison for fish. . Reports have reached the state game and fish commission that fish are dying in large quantities in several sections of Arkansas, due to dying up of ponds, lakes and bayous. Lack of rain, has dropped lakes in Nevada county to low points, threatening fish.

Thomas Brewster addressed Hope Rotary club Friday noon at Hotel Barlow on the true evaluation of a man, pointing out that not less than five disrtict factors enter into it. The true worthh of a man is as intangible, he said, as the value of an artist's masterpiece, which, set in a one-dollar frame still may have the Vii-million-dallar valuation that the mind of the artist has produced. The Rev. Mr. Brewster said a man is valued (1) for his worth to himself, (2) to his family, (3) his nation, (4) his church, and (5) his God.

Two hours after Olson took possession of the governor's office which Langer had refused to relinquish previously when the court ordered him ousted, members of the legislature began to assemble. Olson's taking-over was without incident save for',his finding a telegram intended for Langer that in Divide county 1,000 Langer supporters were ready to answer the ., deposed governor'es call. Earlier Adjutant General Earl Sarles had strengthened Olson's position by agreeing to take orders from him. National Guardsmen, posted by Langer in an effort to maintain himself in office, were withdrawn by Olson as one of his forst acts in office. Olson o'rderd them out again, however, as a precaution against violence. In the house 61 of the 113 elected members answered the roll call. In the senate only 18 of the 49 were present. Both assemblies adjourned after brief sessions.
