H. WASHBURN- U.S. Export Trade Increases; Japan Is Best Customer U NDERGROUND rumors are being spread in this city attacking- the character of Carl Bailey, candidate for attorney general. You can do one of two things: Believe what you hear, although no one is willing to put it into print and make themselves responsible for it—or, you can take time to figure out where, these rumors are coining from. Hal Norwood was attorney e enera ' in the administration two years ago which caused Arkansas to demand a house-clcnninf! at the state capitol. He alone of the old administration csriipcd defeat, jockeying his way through to re-election by the use of "dummy" candidates which made his HI per cent vote sufficient. Today Norwood is seeking to cultivate in the minds of the voters the notion that he is ns much a part of the present Arkansas official family a:; any man in Little Rock. And therefore certain slatohouse "friends" are gointf unobtrusively about Arkansas on a character-assassination campaign against Carl Bilcy. Run these rumors down to their source in any town—Hope for instance —and you will understand. XXX Norwood has nothing in common with the present state administration. Hir, last three consecutive terms as attorney general cover a six-year period, ol history in which our state was June Continues Steady Advance Over Last Year's Figures BUT THREE DECLINE Our Business Drops With France, Italy and Germany WASHINGTON —(A*)— Unusually large increases in cotton sales to the Far East and Russia were said by officials Monday to account for a major portion of the nation's export gain in June as compared with June 1933. Trade by countries showed unusual Increase" in experts to Japan, Russia and China, and a substantial portion of the gain was cotton. Sales to Canada by the United States also increased tharply, and (hi:; was accounted for on a tentative basis by their approximately even foreign exchange. Steady Improvement As a whole, the statistics indicated a continuance of improvement in exports to most important countries, although this was not the case in several instances. The United States sold less to F'ranoe this year in June than i last, and similarly' Germany and Italy boUSbt lass. .. ...:. •,.;.•.,;. ,',W^.,., si *••',• The decline In solos to Germany as compared willi last year both in June and May was said to indicate Germany's intensive efforts to reduce her unfavorable balance, and reluctance of foreign traders to negotiate in the face of Germany's exchange situation. American exports to Russia were more than seven times over the $242,000 of June last year, reaching $1,765,000. In May, the pain was approximately fou rtimes over last year. Japan Largest Customer Salse to Japan, totaling 316,300,000, were more than double last year while in China the increase was from about ?4,000,000 to $9,600,000. Japanese purchases also increased frcm May to June this year, as did our exports to China. Import figures apparently indicated a smoothing out of the upward trend which started so spectacularly last year. At that, time economists were somf.what nonplussed to find that imports were gaining more than exports, although monetary depreciation is theoretically expected to result in much larger t::port increases. New. however, exports continue a steady and comparatively large increase while imports are leveling off. Roosevelt Visits Drouth-Hit Areas President Speaks to Citizens ot the Northwest Country plunged close to bankruptcy and was barely rescued. Norwood set up a fee-reward system for his politically-allied lawyers which cost the State of Arkansas from 20 to 25 per cent of all the tax money that was "frozen" in closed banks. Norwood paid Attorney Ben Shaver of Texarkana ?2,800 against a collection of $14,000 tax money from the closed Arkansas Bank & Trust Co. of Hope despite the fact that the state already had an excellent liquidating agent in charge of the property. Every private citizen was guaranteed the right to obtain his deposit dividends without one dime's extra cost, because the State Banking Department was managing the property ^Jhe^tele could do for the EN ROUTE WITH PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT to Washington.—(/P)— In the blistering heat of the parched Northwest Monday, President Roosevelt tackled the drouth—a calamity assuming proportions which deeply concerned him and his aides . Traveling across northern Montana with a late afternoon sttop to motor to the federal power and reclamation dam at Fort Peck, on the upper Missouri, Mr. Roosevelt saw and heard of the results of ths rain shortage. Federal officials bcardinc the special train assured the president there is no danger of famine, 'but reported the- drouth persistently is spreading its devastation. "We have to provide in I he days to come," Mr. Roosevelt told the throng surrounding his train at Havre, Mont., "for the elimination of the causes of not only drouth, but of the conditions that come from drouth. "It is going to take a long time to do it, but, as I have said before, I think we are on our v/ay and that you food people understand it and are supporting it.' 26,000,003 Persons Affected Lawrence Wc-stbrook, assistant to Harry L. Hopkim, federal relief ad- minist.rstrr, n.pnrtr-d upon boarding the presidential special that the drouth no wtxtondj to t-J states and affects about 26,000.000 persons. He believed more than the ?525,000,000 already allocated by the president and congress would be required to meet the problem. The whole situation gave the prc-si- (Cc.riur.ufcd on Fs^c Throe) private citizen Attorney General Nor- wocd would not allow the state to do for itself. XXX Under Section 2 of Act 157 of 1923 it is provided: In all cases where the attorney general may hereafter appoint special counsel under the provisions of this act, such counsel shall receive a reaonable compensation ior his services, dependent on recovery, TO BE FIXED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WHERE COLLECTION IS MADE WITHOUT SUIT. Norwood has made a specialty of picking cases where collection could be made WITHOUT SUIT—for under the lav/ he alone fixed the fee when •he case could be settled without suit. Norwood boasts that he is a "first- class" lawyer. What the people cf Arkansas need :n the attcrney general's office today :sr.'t a first-class lawyer but a first- class man. You can hire legal talent. But you've got to be sure first that the office-holder who does the hiring is a faithful public servant. 2 More Austrian Rebels Will Die Sentenced by Austrian Court-Marital to Be Hanged VIENNA, Austria.— (,/F) —A court- martial Tuesday sentenced two members of the Nazi putsch against the government of the late Chancellor Dollfuss to be hanged.

Prison Comrades Held for Murder of Arkansas Man Two Accused at Louisiana Pen of Killing Fred England THROAT Is SLASHED Fellow Convicts Angered Because Hre Prevented Prison Break BATON ROUGE, La.— (ff>) —Two Angola State Penal Farm convicts Tuesday were charged with murdering Fred England, convict, in his cell Mcndny night. England's throat was cut after he gave information 'about a planned prison break. Enpland was a former Arkaru'is convict, being sent up in that state from Ouachita county. Slain hi Cell BATON ROUGE, La.-(/P)~-Penitentiary authorities late Monday reported the slaying of Fred England. 37, a convict of the state penal farm at Angola, apparently for having given information on plans for a prison break. R. L. Himes, penitentiary manager, said that England, who was serving a 10-year sentence for breaking and entering from La Salle parish, was found with his throat slashed in his cell in Camp "G" after guards had heard him scream. An old case knife was found near by. There were more than 200 other convicts in the ccllhouse at the time, anyone of whom might have reached through the bars of his cell and cut him, Himes said. The prison manager said England recently had given information to the penitentiary authorities regarding a planned break, and expressed opinion that the convict was killed out of resentment, of prisoners who conspired to make the aUcmpt'for freedom. England, a native of Winnfield, La., was received February 3, 1931. Penitentiary records showed he previously was a convict in the Arkansas penitentiary. Fred England was convicted in 1925 in Ouachita Circuit Court of burglary and grand larceny and was sentenced to three years in prison. He escaped from the state farm near Tucker May 19. 1926, and was recaptured June 19, 1928. He was released at the expiration of his term, March 3. 1930. His home was at Junction City. Federal Reserve Chain Under Fire Bulletins WASHINGTON — (ff>)— The appointment of 1,835 additional regular employes in 'he large post- rfflccs over the country was an" nounctd Tuesday by Postmaster General Farley. Central Federal Bank of Issue May Replace It Copyright Associated Press WASHINGTON.—Creation of a central bank of issue, which would take ever function of the Federal Reserve System and lodge control of credit and currency directly with the government, was said by officials Monday to be under consideration for presentation to the next congress. The matter probably will be presented ta President Rocsevelt upon his return to the capital The house- banking committee last session was pic-pared to report a measure for a central monetary authority but the plan was dropped after a trip to the White House. Secretary Morgenthau opposed similar measures last ses£i:n, asking mere time to determine Treasury policy with regard to a central bank. Cuitailmsnt of the Federal Reserve's authority long has been considered desirnb'.e by some administration elements but it was said presence on the calendar cf other important financial and bankinr measures prevented any such legislation being enacted last £fS5irj!. The proposed chingt? is regarded as of particular importance because of the prospect of continued heavy gov- ernrrcnt borrowing for r.fundifig and cm:r;':ncy expenditure;. These will arprc-x'matf JIO.OO'J.OOO.OOO in the cur- ren' fiscal year.

BRUSSELS, Belgium.— (ff>) — Archduke Otto, claimant to the Austrian throne, left his Belgium exile by automobile Tuesday. It was announced he was headed for Italy to join his mother, the Em prcirs Zita, who has been there for three weeks. It was considered In informal circles that the trip was connected with matrimonial rather than political plans. Otto's name "lias been frequently linked with Princess Maria, youngest daughter of the Italian royal family. Big Crowd Hears County Candidates Audience Packs Baptist Church Lawn Here Monday Night Hernpstead county candidates, entering the last lap of a spirited campaign, fired blasts at. eech other before a crowd of over 1,000 persons here Monday night. The candidates spoke from the lawn. of First Baptist church. The overflowing crowd filled every available seat. Many stood in the streets and sat in parked automobiles. The speaking started at 8:30, soon after church services, and continued past mid-night. Wash Hutson introduced the speakers and acted as master of ceremonies. Leading off the rally .were candidates for sheriff, involving a five-cornered sprint for that office. The liquor question, loose law enforcement and qualifications for a peace officer were the main issues the five aspirants discussed. Next on the list were candidates for tax assessor, including several. Unaccustomed to public speaking, several of the candidates in facing the large audience showed signs of stage fright and jumpy voices, but when the list narrowed down to the county judges race greater interest was shown. Speakers for the county judge's election, proved to be more spirited than the others. Each candidate "opened up" and the crowd was entertained with much mud-slinging. Speakers for other races provided much interest. The candidates were at Blevins Tuesday. PeAnn will be visited Wednesday. Piney Grove Thursday and Washington Friday. The campaign will end with a rally here Monday nipht, August 13.

Tcwnshend's statement was released while certain mill men were considering the organization of sn association to pretest against cost protection prices of the code.

Townshend h.-K They contend that without mini'-ivn ccst protection prices at this time- *'• wruld be impossible to observe irun!- rn'm wages and hour? of operation.

Townshend declared the NRA and the Hardwood Manufacturers' Institute, divisional code agency, are pros- icv.tinp LCC'.I; violations. He said that a break in the lumber code would disrupt wages and spread to other >n- dustries and wreck the president's recovery program.

The city hall area was thrown into confusion. There was plenty of excitement but no casualties. Radicals Demonstrate NEW ORLEANS, La.—(#>)—Several hundred Communists and Socialists held a mass meeting in Lafayette Square here today, denouncing the i expenditures for military display here in New Orleans ,by. Senator Huey P. ! Long and Mayor'T^Se'i?»me* ; Wa}wstej'. j while 15,000 unemployables were drop; ped from the relief rolls today be- j cause the recent Long-controlled leg- j islature made no appropriations to match federal funds. Governor Allen said: "No state funds are available for their relief," ' "It's just as we said it would be," commented Harry J. Early, federal ERA director for Louisiana. "We said that if necessary state funds were not provided, the relief would fall back on the parishes. It's up to the parishes, since the state didn't do anything about them." Mayor Walmsley led a battery of lawyers into District Judge Nat W. Bond's court to attack the constitutionality of the recent legislative act, sponsored by Long, to take police power away from the mayor and place it in the hands of a board of seven men, named by seven local civil and fraternal organizations. The city-plaintiffs, who hold a temporary restraining order against the board functioning, are asking a permanent injunction. Overruling motions of dismissal Judge Bond took the case under advisement, promising a decree on Thursday morning.

Regular Army Is to Be Increased May Absorb Some of CCC Men and Relief Workers Copyright Associate^ Fres s " WASHINGTON — (£>)—A campaign to increase the size of the regular army to 165,000 enlisted men and 14,000 officers will be instituted by the War Department after the return to Washington of Secretary Dc-rn. Bern's inspection of Panama Canal defenses and army outposts throughout the west is said at the department to have confirmed ths General Staff's contention that the army is "below the danger line." The War Department consequently has prepared concrete plans to increase the standing army by approximately and the officers by 12,000 at an increased expenditure of $35,000,000 annually. Dern, the General Staff and Gneral Douglas McArthur, chief of the staff, have united in support of a bill introduced in the last congress by Rep- pesentative Thompson, Democrat, Texas, to accomplish the necessary increase. Thompson plans for the enlarged army to become a semi-relief measure. An increase of the army by 50,000 now will, he argues take that many young msn off relief rolls and aid in eliminating surplus labor. To accomplist a savings in appropriations—despite the additional $35,000,000 required—Thompson proposes that the army absorb some of the men now enrolled in the CCC camps. The War Deportment's position, however, is that completely aside frorn any .-c-lief or economy objectives, the sr- T.y needs to be increased for reasons of r.atio;iil Lawyer Killed by Woman in Texas Seamstress Slioots Down 64-Year-Old Attorney SAN ANTONIO, Texas —(£>)— A murder complaint was filed Monday against Mrs,-. Gladys Rice, 40, a widow, shortly after shooting Ben H. Kelley, 64, a lawyer, had died of wounds received from a pistol at a busy street intersection. Police said they took a smoking pistol frcm Mrs. Rice's hands immediately after the shooting and quoted her as saying financial affairs led to tho shooting. She said she was a seamstress. Detective Captain Aubrey Hopkins, who questioned Mrs. Rice said she spoke cf financial troubles lasting ever a period of five years. A moment after the shooting an unidentified woman, dressed in white, stepped up to Mrs. Rice and struck •her a stinging blow in the face. Persons nearby grabbed the woman, but turned her loose when Mrs. Rice said to them: :^, "Let her go—shs doestpt 1 know what this man has done to me."

Revival at 8 P; m, Tuesday Quartet Program Will Be /. Preliminary, Begin- ^ ning at 7:45 ,',; J The revival service at First Baptist " church will begin Tuesday night at ' 8 o'clock after a preliminary qu at 7:45. The hour was changed day night in order to allow The po- n litical rally to be held on the lawn after the meeting, but the revival will return Tuesday night to the regular schedule. The enthusiasm of the meeting continues to grow, and larger audiences are attending each night. There have been many responses to the invitation for people to accept Christ, and there • have been many additions to the First Baptist church. The revival is bsing conducted by the pastor of the church, at the church, but it is not in any sense a meeting which discriminates between denominations. People of all congregations; are helping by their presence, and it is the desire of First Baptist church- that many will find Christ and will, go into the church of their choice.' No effort is made to influence people to leave their own inclinations in the matter of church membership. The sermon subject for Tuesday night will be "Why Will Ye Die?" The morning worship begins at ft o'clock and takes place in the auditorium of the church.
