PRICE 5c 001 The News Review •By BRUCE CATTON Routon, Merchant and Civic Leader, Dies Here Tuesday Well Known Hope Man Succmnbs to Short Illness FUNERAL AT HOME Business Houses Will Close to Pay Last Tribute to Him I T was a most attractive-photograph. It showed a wild waterfall, toppling over a rocky ledge and foaming down into a gorgfi whose banks were covered with virgin timber. Everything in view looked, presumably, just as it did centuries ago, before there was a white man on the continent. -G The paragraph of printed matter that accompanied the picture said that this waterfall was on the Tahquamo- non river in the upper pcnisular of Michigan. A movement was afoot to turn the region into a state park, it was said; nnd then came this sentence —"the plncc is diffcult to reach at present, but a highway will be built to the falls if the park is O.K.d." And while all of us who like to go places by auto would be glad to have one more beauty spot within reach of our summer lours, it occurs to us to wonder if we iircn't overdoing this business of putting roads into the wilderness, just a little. XXX A food part of the charm of some of these wild spots is their isolation —the fact that they nrc not only unspoiled, but they are so hard to get to that people don't have a chance to spoil them. We have built so many roads in the past decade that it is hard to think of any beauty spot which the casual tourist cannot reach. And while this is, in the main, an excellent thing we might reflect that once you make a wilderness thoroughly accessible it ceases to be a wilderness. There ought, in oilier words, to 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 at nil, and which contain no tourist cabins or general store. XXX IjOl there be a few pri/.cs for those who arc willing to rough it, a few pieces of wilderness which we can't sec if we are not willing to park the car and hike a bit. A recent editorial in Nature Magazine stressed this very point. It remarked acidly that there arc 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 the wilderness area in their natural, roadless state. This doesn's mean that we must slop making forest and mountain accessible to the aUto. It is simply a reminder that we can build too many roads and if we do wt shall rob ourselves of something very much worth preserving. XXX One of the oddest conflicts within the machinery of the New Deal is coimng up for settlement just now. The administration is pondering over the overlapping fiends presided over by the NRA and the Federal Trade Commission, and il is hinted in Washington that those two bodies may eventually be combined. The Federal Trade Commission is a body set up to see that industry is kept from making large-scale combinations that might be against public policy. Its theory dates right back to the old anti-trust days. The NBA, 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 combinations with one hand and help it with the other. XXX There is something exceedingly eerie and pleasantly shivery about Dr. William Beebc's descent into the ocean depths in his "bathysphere." By sinking half a mile below the surface in his steel .sphere, this scientist, has ex- seen u region which, certainly no man C. C. Culp, as CriUcndcn county dcp- ever saw before. These stories about his trip make interesting reading. Dr. Bccbc peers out of his windows and sees a place of everlasting night and everlasting silence. Monstrous forms, oddly illuminated with myriad lights glide past. The whole scene is one that Poo might have invented. Here, indeed is exploring in a grand style. Flying into the stratosphere or hiking to the north pole hardly compares with it. Dr. Bcebc travels a scant half mile and sees a new world. Islow-lyosc William Ralph Routon, well known Hope civic leader and merchant, died in Josephine hospital Tuesday morning at tha ace of BO. The end came at 8:15 o'clock after more than two weeks of illness. He had bern confined in Josephine hospital since last Wednesday.

Long Starts Vice Inquiry Tuesday Walmsley Forces Ready to Defy King-fish at New Orleans BATON ROUGE, La.— (/Pj —Under fire from several quarters, Senator Huoy P. Long, the sclf-slylcd "Kingfish," Tuesday ordered his legislative committee to organize and investigate his charges of "gambling and vice m- i(|iiily" -in New Orleans.

Switchboard Kept Open During Night by Pair From Houston FREEPORT, Texas— (/I')— A tropical storm which lashed this section of Ihe Texas gulf coast for 24 hours wilh high winds and torrential rains abated its fury Tuesday and residents found their property had escaped ( practically unharmed. Shortly after 8 a. m., the wind fell 10 about 40 miles an hour and the barometer was rising steadily. From midnight until 3 a. m., the barometer stood at 29,62 and the wind velocily ranged from 65 lo 75 miles, .coast guardsmen estimated. At 8 a. m., however, the barometer had climbed to 29.72. The wind, which blew oul of the north Monday, shifted into the north- northcasl and blew the water out keeping the lidc to a minimum. Foi that reason highway 19, which runs inland to Anglclon and Houston stayed open, in past storms this roat has almost invariably gone undci water. Survey Is Made Two newspapermen made a hasly survey of Frccporl by automobile early Tuesday and the only damage they found was one small tree broken down. They were told lhal a 25 fool boat, anchored in the ship channel, sank. Warned by past storms, Ihe inhabi- lanls, almost en masse, evacuated the town by special train, specila buses and by private cars Monday. No 1 more than fifty persons remaincc there during the night, but early Tuesday others begnn to return. Members of Ihe coasl guard gave ample warning lo campers and resi- dcnls of the low-lying area along the coast, and no fear was felt that any individuals or parties had been trapped. Communication Restored Bolh Frccporl telephone operators lefl on Ihe special Irain, bul Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Hemmcr of Hoiislon kept Ihe switchboard open. Hemmcr is a toll engineer for the Southwestern Bell Telephone company at Houston .ind Mrs. Hemmcr formerly operated 11 switchboard. The Hcmmcrs, with their four children, ranging from one year of age to eight, were aboard their 28-fool cabin cruiser when the storm struck. Their power failed and Ibc boat started drifting toward Ihe open gulf. Near the r'rccporl. Sulphur company's tloclis, the coast guardsmen managed to connect, wi'h the boat and lowed it back lo a dock where Ihe Hein- iners were landed. Throughout Ihe night, while Mr. and Mrs. Hemmcr, clad only in batliuig suits, operated the telephone switchboard, the four children slept in an adjoining room. The Houston Lighting and Power company kept a line crew on hand throughout the night so that service might be continued. Early Tuesday morning power went off in some sec- lions of the town because of trouble with one of the circuits, bul the service shortly was restored.

Three Primaries Are Scheduled California, Mississippi and South Carolina Go to Polls Tuesday By the Associated Press Tlie drift of political .sentiment to or from the New Deal will be reflected in the results of Tuesday's primaries in California, Mississippi and South Carolina. The nomination of Senator Hiram Johnson on four California party tickets has been forecast because of strong administration backing of the independent Republican who has been a consistent Roosevelt supporter. Two conservative candidates for the California Democratic gubernatorial nomination dropped out of the race in favor of George Crell, who, among others, is contesting against Upton Sinclair, former Socialist and advocate of an '"epic" form of government. The outcome of the heated race for Mississippi's Democratic senatorial nomination, which is equivalent to election, appeared doubtful. Senator Hubert D. Stephens, Representative Ross Collins, former Governor Theodore G. Bilbo and State Senator Frank Harper wound up y bittrc campaign with claims of victory. ' South Carolina elects a governor and nominates candidates for the National House, as do California and Mississippi also. No senatorial contest is on in South Carolina, however. Officer Who Attacked Reporter Loses Job MARION, Ark — (/P)— Sheriff Howard Curlin announced the dismissal of C. r. Gulp as a Crittiden county deputy. At almost the same time Mayor William H. Haudbausen of West Mem phis announced Gulp's dismissal as marshall of Wesl Memphis. Neither gave ijny reason for the action.. They simply said, "Culp liasn't been walking for quite a while." Culp was named defendant in a $20.000 suit brought in federal court in 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 lo a criminal as- ault case near Wesl Memphis. The Winter Crops Expected ( LITTLE ROCK -(/P)— T. Roy Reid, 'director of drouth relief in Arkansas, said the counties were added to the emergency area to assist in the rehib- ilitition program by making it possible for farmers to sell their cattle and receive crop loans from the farm credit administration. The loans wil make it possible for the farmers to plant larger acreages of winter feed and forage crops and aid the fall garden program. He said .farmers in the emergency counties can 'obtain larger loans, a maximum of $400 including ?1 per acre for planting winter grazing and feed crops. The planting program, was reported gaining mpmentum and Reid said the 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 Are 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 reports for August showed little rainfall in the southern group. Drouth Figures Given H. S. Cole, metcrologist in charge of the Little Rock weather bureau Monday offered comparative figures for 1930 and 1934 which indicate Hie present drouth less severe than that of four years ago. The average rainfall in Arkansas during April was 3,51 inches compared to 1.41 in April, 1930. In May the rainfall was 3.36 inches against 10.06 in May 1930; June, 1934, 2.88 inches compared with .87 inch June 1930; July, 1934 1.66 inches against .74 inch July Indicted Harold Taylor (above) has been indicted in connection with the f;layii\g of Faye New, college student, whose body, the throat cut, was found in a corn field. 19M. The August 1930 figure was 2.53, lawsuit fall. is scheduled for trial next but no comparison was available HS the August figure has not yet been computed for 1931 The total August rainfall for Little flock to dale was 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 crop loss was "spotted" with the greatest dawagc concentrated along the northern and western part of the state. Says Recovery Act Injured U. S. Claims Employment and Payrolls Decreased by Program WASHINGTON.— <£>)— Donald Uicli- berg worked Tuesday on a report of the new deal's benefits to farmers while the Republican camp took pot shots at his summary of the industrial picture. Attacking the first Richberg report of "tremendous progress" under the Roosevelt administration, Chairman Henry P. Fletcher of the Republican national committee said Monday night that business has actually lost ground under the NRA ar.-i the AAA. Richberg, head of the president's executive council, reported to Mr. Roosevelt Sunday night thai l.rj workers were re-employed since Roosevelt tool; office aud t.hut industrial payrolls increased from $96,01)0.000 to $132.000,000. But, Fletcher said in a statement. Richberg compared present conditions witJi those of the spring and early summer of 1933, when the NIIA and AAA were not effective. Mr. Tiberius, Roman emperor, wore a laurel wreath in thunderstorms as a protection against lightning. Jury Indictment Slayingof Co-Ed Sweetheart 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 se for September 17. He was in the county jail when word came to him thai he had been indicted. He made no comment. A. B. Cain, the girl's sweetheart was one of the dozen witnesses examined by the jury. He remained in the jury room for 30 minutes. Questioned by detectives last week Cain told of hoving followed Taylor and Miss New to a point near the city limits after they started on their fatal ride. "I was jealous," he said when questioned about his reason for following the Taylor automobile. "I worshipped the ground she walked on." Cain was preceded in the grand jury room by Mrs. Lon New, whose face told the story of her sufferings in the tragic week since her only child went for a ride with a man she met only a few moments before. Mrs. New wept and wrung her hands as she waited for the call into the jury room, and officials feared she was on the verge of a collapse. She appeared calmer, however, after her 20-minutc stay before the jury- Mrs. Homer Reeves, with whom Faye New started to the downtown area from her home in the suburban Woocilawn the night before she was slain, was examined briefly. Mrs. Reeves' husband is a half-brother of Cain. She and Miss New were close friends. Witnesses included R. L. Carlisle, the volunteer searcher who found the girl's body in a ditch less than a mile from the spot pointed out by Taylor as the place where the girl jumped from his automobile after an argument, and several of the officers who luive conducted the investigation into the crime.
