Long Starts Vice Inquiry Tuesday Walmsloy Forces Ready to Defy Kingfish at New Orleans BATON ROUGE, La.— (/)') —Under fire from several quarters, Senator Huey P.

Mrs. Rainey Will Not Seek Congressional Post SPRINGFIELD. III. -(IV)- Formal announcement was made that Mrs. Henry '1. Rainey would not be a candidate lo sui-ci-ed her husband, the late speaker of the House as congressman from the 20th Illinois district. Fcnator William H. Detrich, who conferred with Mrs. Rainey at her Carroll ton home issued a statement saying the speaker's widow will not M-'.'l; (In. Democratic Jiwimwti'in. PMric'd said IK- woul'l not. attempt.

The ir-nator quoted Mrs. Rainey as Saying that Emil Schram of Hillview wa:; possibly a more intimate friend of the speaker than others who have been mentioned us possibilities. The speaker was buried at Carrollton last week in services attended by President Roosevelt, The paragraph of printed malic that accompanied the picture said lha this walcrfnll was on the Tahquame non river in the upper pcnisular o Michigan. A movement was afoot ti turn the region inlo a slale park, i was said; and then came this sentence —"the place is diffcult lo reach a present, but a highway will be buil lo the falls if the park is O.K.d." And while all of us who like lo g places by auto would be glad lo hav one more beauty spot within reach o our summer lours, it occurs to us to wonder if we aren't overdoing this business of putting roads into thj wilderness, just a jitllc. XXX A good part of the charm of some of these wild spots is their isolation —the fact that they arc not only unspoiled, but Ihcy are so hard to get (o that people don't have a chance to spoil them. We have buill so many roads in the past decade that it is hard to think of any beauty spot which the ci tourist cannot reach. And while this is, in the main, an excellent thing we might reflect that once you make wilderness ^thoroughly accessible it ceases to be a wilderness. There ought, in oilier words, lo be some areas that can't be reached by car; spots which one must penetrate afoot, or with a pack-horse, if one is to sec them al all, and which contain no tourist cabins or general store. XXX Let there be a few pri/cs for those who arc willing to rough it, a few pieces of wilderness which we can't see if we are not willing to park the car and hike a bit. A recent editorial in Nature Magazine stressed this very point. It rc- mHi-kcd acidly that there are people who won't be satisfied "until the crest of every mountain range is scarred by a skyline highway or scenic boulevard." And it pleads for preservation of some of tile wilderness area in their natural, roadless slale. . TJals^d/wwi'.s menu that we must stop making forest and mountain accessible to the auto. It is simply a reminder that we can build too many roads and if we do we shall rob ourselves of something very much worth preserving. XXX One of the oddest conflicts within the machinery of the New Deal is coining up for settlement just now. The administration is pondering over the overlapping fiends presided over by the NRA and the Federal Trade Commission, and it is hinted in Washington that those two bodies may eventually be combined. The Federal Trade Commission i a body set up to sec that industry i kept from making large-scale com binations that might be against public policy. Its theory dates right bael lo Ihc old anti-trust days. The NRA on the other hand, holds that a large degree of industrial combination is both necessary and wise. Thus, naturally, there has been a good deal of conflict. It is high time that it is straightened out. The government can hardly fight combination.' with one hand and help it with the other.

From midnight until 3 a. m., the Barometer stood al 29,62 and Ihc wind velocity ranged from 65 to 75 miles, coast guardsmen estimated. At 8 a. m., however, the barometer had climbed to 29.72. The wind, which blew out of the north Monday, shifted into the north- northeast and blew the water out, keeping the tide to a minimum. For ,hat reason highway 19, which runs inland lo Anglcton and Houston, stayed open. In past storms this road las almost invariably gone under water. Survey Is Made Two newspapermen made a hasty iui-vey of Frccporl by automobile early Tuesday nnd the only damage hey found was one small tree brok- n down.

Not lore than fifty persons remained nere during the night, but early 'uesday others began to return. Members of the coast guard gave mplc warning to campers and rcsi- cnls of the low-lying area along the oast, and no fear was felt that any individuals or parties had been trapped.

The nomination of Senator Hiran Johnson on four California parly tickets has been forecast because of strong administration backing of the independent Republican who has been consistent Roosevelt supporter. Two conservative candidates for the California Democratic gubcrnatoria nomination dropped out of the race in favor of George Crcll, who, among others, is contesting against Uploi Sinclair, former Socialisl and advocate of an "epic" form of government. The outcome of the heated race for Mississippi's Democratic senatorial nomination, which is equivalent (o election, appeared doubtful. Senator Hubert D. Stephens, Representative Ross Collins, former Governor Thco- lorc G. Bilbo and Stale Senator Frank Flarpcr wound up a bittrc campaign with claims of viclory. South Carolina elects a governor and lominatcs candidates for the Nation- House, as do California and Miss- ssippi also. No senatorial contcsl is on in South Carolina, however. Hempstead County i Is Added to List in Emergency Area State Has Much Greater Chance to Recover Through Loans EXPECT FALL CROP Planting Program Is Gaining Head\yay, Says Reid WASHINGTON -(tf>)-Thc Farm Credit Administration Tuesday added 20 counties in three states to the secondary drouth areas. Included in the secondary area were Hcmpstcad, Calhoun, Clay, Columbia, Craighead, Greene, Howard, LaFayc- ettc, Little River, Miller, Nevada, Ouachita, Pike, Poinsctt, Pulaski, Sevier, Union and Woodruff. Winter Crops Expected LITTLE ROCK —(/P)— T. Roy Reid, director of drouth relief in Arkansas, said the counties were added to the emergency area lo assist in the rehib- Htitioh program by making it possible for farmers to sell their cattle and receive crop loans from the farm j credit administration. The loans wil make it possible for the farmers to plant larger acreages of winter feed and forage crops anc aid the fall garden program. He saic farmers in the emergency counties can obtain larger loans, a maximum of |400 including fl per acre for planting winter grazing and feed crops. The planting program was reported gaining momentum and Reid saidTthc farmers can plant small grains as late as the middle of October, giving them plenty of time for closing emergency crop and seed loans. Rains Arc Too Late Recent rains did not come in time to save farm crops in the drouth area and farmers are hopeful that winter crops, financed by the federal loans will give them a chance to stage a comeback, he said. The southern tier of counties beginning at Miller county, Texarkana on the west and stretching through Columbia, Lafayette, Union and Ashley were described as being in the greatest need of rain at the present time. Weather bureau repoj-ts for August showed little rainfall in the southern Indicted group. Drouth Figures Given Kust populated and 24th street, by Polish-Ajncri- Circus Murder Mystery.

Culp was named defendant 111 a f20.000 suit brought in federal court ui Memphis recently by Al Capley, a reporter for the Commercial-Appeal. The reporter charged Culp attacked him when he asked the officer for information relative to a criminal assault case near West Memphis. The lawsuit is scheduled for trial next fall. H. S. Cole, metcrologist in charge of the Little Rock weather bureau VIonday offered comparative figures for 1930 and 1934 which indicate the resent drouth less severe than that of four years ago. The average rainfall in Arkansas during April was 3.51 inches compared o 1.41 in April, 1930. In May the rain- all was 3,36 inches against 10.06 in y 1930; June, 1934, 2.88 inches com pared with .87 inch June 1930; Julj 1934 1.66 inches against .74 inch Julj 1930. The August 1930 figure was 2.53 but no comparison was available a the August figure has not yel bcci computed for 1934. The total Augus rainfall for Litlle Rock to date wa: 1.33 inches, Cole said. He declared the difference in the two dry spells was not so great as the two figures indicated since damage in 1930 was general, while the 1934 croi loss was "spotted" with the greatest dawage concentrated along the northern and western part at the state. 1 Harold Taylor (above) has been indicted in • connection with the slaying of JFayc New, college student, whosoibody, the Uiroat cut, was found in a corn Held.

Jury Indictment Slayin|of Co-Ed Sweetheart" 1 of Dead College Girl Gives Testimony BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — (#>)-A week after he asked Miss Faye New, Howard college co-ed to accompany him on an automobile ride, Harold Taylor, son of a former city comptroller, was indicted for the girl's murder. A grand jury called into special session to investigate the slaying, completed its work in near record time in returning the charge of murder in the first degree against Taylor. No bond was allowed. Taylor's trial probably wil be set for September 17. He was in the county jail when word came to him that he had been indicted. He made no comment. A. B.
