As a rule, commod- ty-price Indices are merely a composite of the wholesale prices of a roup of raw materials. But how many of the 130,000,000 consumers in this country ever bought a ton of steel, or a bale of cotton? We venture to say that none of the 24,000,000 automobile owners in the nation bought 2500 pounds of steel, rubber, cotton and copper. No, they purchased a single finished product—an automobile. What is a stabilized price for an automobile? If Chevrolet touring cars with four cylinders, twowheel brakes, no self-starter, no bumpers, no snub- bers, no electric lights and only a make-shift lop as protection against the elements sold for $875 in 1914, would a stabilized price level mean that the same model should sell for the same price in 1934? If so, what would be a stabilized price for a 1931 model, with six cylinders, four-wheel brakes, knees, and all the other improvements invented in the past 20 years? Would it be $1200 or $1800? If we are to succumb to the tenents of the inflationists, it seems inescapable that $1800 would be somewhere near a desirable stabilized price (in terms of 1914). Are we to assume that Detroit, Pontiac, and South Bend would thrive on the orders received from eager new buyers at such levels? Is it not obvious that if stabilized prices, based upon index numbers are a worthy goal in our proposed planned economy, we shall have to see to it that our index numbers arc ... , accurate?

JULIA BOYD, 103 PARK AVENUE, NEW YORK Enclosed Is 15 cents in coin for Pattern No Size • Name Address Stale City Name of this newspaper LITLE ROCK-Governor Futrell is- ued a proclamation Monday request- ng county tax collectors not to collect he 10 per cent penalty from taxpayers who do not pay their real es- ate taxes within the time prescribed >y law. Requests for executive authority tc waive penalties on this year's general property taxts came from the Homo Owners Loan Corporation, tax collectors and many individuals, it was said. The January special sesion of the legislature extended tht time for paying the first installment of taxes without penalty from April 16 to July 16 the date for paying the stcond histall- ment. The third and final installment of half the taxes will be due October i. . | The governor has no constitutiona or statutory authority to remit tax penalties, but he said in the pracla- mation that if any county court fails to confirm a collector's settlement because penalties were remitted, he wil ask the legislature when it convenes to enact a measure remitting all such penalties. The proclamation follows: "Many citizens throughout the state have filed applications with the Home Owners Loan Corporation and the Federal Land Bank for loans which have not been completed. Such applications are now pendini; for specific amounts which are not sufficient to care for necessary obligations, including taxes and penalties, c.pd ii penalties are enforced at this time it will cnfore renewa.s of application* and entail unnecessary expenses anc delays. The fiancial condition of most of the taxpayers is such that imposition of any penalty would be a hardship. "Therefore, I hereby request al county collectors to refrain from imposing penalties an dextendin;; such as an outstanding charge agaist lands i coection with delinquent taxes on real property. Should any clerk proceed otherwise, or should any county court fail to confirm any settlemnt because penalties were omitted, 1 shall ask the legislature immediately upon it's convening, to remit all such penalties."

After the Tiremen had taken the first inning lead in Tuesday's game, the Storks tied the score in the third when Mellett, an old-time Texarkana Twin performer holding down left field for the Hope club, drove one between shortstop and third for a base hit. Kelley sacrificed him to second and Elliott singled to score Mellett. The Tiremen took the lead in the fourth on three solid blows by Hall, Earhart and T. Thompson, but lost it again in the following inning. Mellett lined to T. Thompson but Kelley was hit by a pitched ball and McClendon was given a free trip to first when Catcher MuUin of the Tiremen interfered with hi mas he went to swing at a pitched ball. Cobb Riley, hard hitting first sacker of the Storks, promptly lined one to the left field fence to score Kelley and McClendon and send the Storks into a lead that looked to finally give them a victory. In the half of the sixth the Tiremen started off as if they meant to put the game on the ice without further ado. Hall, leadoff man dropped one into deep left center for two bases, and Craig followed with a Texas leaguer into left that gave him two bases but held Hall at third. Earhart then hit to McClendon who tossed to Riley for the putout.

Mrs. Miller admltter that Dillinger had been in her apartment on "three or four evenings" but denied that he had roomed at her house for several weeks. She said Polly (Mrs. Keele) was an old acquaintance whose father is a minister in Fargo, N, D. Polly, she said, kept company with Dillinger who was using the name of Gene or Jim Lawrence. Polly told her "Lawrence" would not tell her his business or give her, his home telephone number because he' was married. Mrs. Miller said she ran down the alley and to her home Immediately after Dillinger was killed. The theater they attended is at 2433 Lincoln ave, less than a block from 2420 North Halstead street. Mrh Miller said she hurriedly took off her red dress and then went back and joined the crowd in front of the theater but that Polly would not go back with her.

He tossed his .38-caliber revolver upon the counter and said to Jailor John J. Healey: "I've shot my wife and killed a man. I want to surrender. Please send an ambulance to 154 Sheridan road, Park Hill, to take my wife to a hospital." Steele entered the Donaghey building through a rear door, tottered to a chair near the elevators, and- asked some one to call, a doctor. A doctor examined him and said he was dead. But he was not dead. He revived on the way to City hospital in a Healey & Roth ambulance, and lived long enough to make a statement to Dr. Mi B. Leverette, interne. "Tommy Thomas shot me," he said. "He shot me in my cigar store, because I had been going around with his wife. Please call my wife." He died then, before his wife could reach the hospital. trom starvation and weakened by the heat, were shot down by government inspectors and hauled away. Federal authorities were urged to withhold further consignments of drouth-strick- en kine. A major 'portion of the' thousands of these cattle the government bought had been sent here. The Farm Administration in Washington answered the plea by ordering a temporary suspension of the buying of cattle in the arid areas because of the Chicago situation and because other markets are congested. The National Livestock Marketing Association, representing some 300,000 livestock raisers and feeders, appealed to Washington authorities to bring about a settlement of the strike or'to at least effect a 72hour truce to enable a clean-up of the suffering stock already in the yards here on en route. The plea was wired to Dr. J. S. Mohler of the United States Department of Agriculture. No restrictions were placed on the handling of the distressed cattle, but the packing plants found their facilities already overtaxed by the glut of animals on hand.
