Three Days of Community Entertainment-Southwest Arkansas Merchants & Farmers Fair, in Hope October 21-22-23. Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor —-—— Alex. H Washburn "Compiracy"—a Loud Noise No Decision Yet Paper Gods A MONG the things thai, arc WWMK with our American estimate of politicians is this—which I road in today's wire report: "Chicago—(/I')—Rep. A. -I. Sabbath, Illinois Democrat, in a telegram to President Roosevelt Tuesday charged that the .stock market slump was directly traceable to n 'Wall Street conspiracy'. "He urged strong measures be taken against (hem immediately to save the nation from a recurrence of the 1929 debacle." Something, f say, is wrong if we Americans really look so stupid that this Illinois gent thinks it safe to palm off an impudent piece of ignorance on a people whose chief claim to fame is that they have a lot of common sense in money matters. The wealthiest men in this wealthiest of all nations couldn't save the country or themselves in 15)2!). And by themselves they can't wreck it in li)37. What we need at this moment isn't public speaking, but some good silent thinking. For there may be some bad news to be be reckoned with—and you never hear any bad news when the band is playing. got in n bncl wny Searchers Reach "Mainliner" and Discover All Dead Brand New United Airlines Ship Smashed in Uinta Mountains WORST AIR CRASH Crack up in Rocky Mountains Most Costly in U. S. History SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. (/Pi--A ground searching parly reached the crumpled "Mainliner" high in the Uintn mountains Tuesday and found all 19 occupants of the luxurious an transport dead. Ralph Johnson, United Airlines pilot. informed L. D. Cuddeback, division superintendent, that a survey- of the wreckage showed no sign of life After Johnson brought out word of the tragedy—the grcatst number of persons killed in an American airplane crash—the air line quickly assembled officials, airplanes and ground workers to bring oV. the b.-.d'cs. Airliner Is Smashed SALT LAKE CITY, Utah.-oT.-A huge transcontinental plane carrying 19 persons was found shattered late Monday high on a mountainside Kll miles ca.sl of here more than M hours nfter it disappeared. Wesley Meyers, a rancher, flesv over the scene of the "Mainliner" i-rash and said that "wreckage was strewn over a considerable area" and he did not see how any of the 19 occupants c< uld lie alive. Should all aboard have perished, the crash would be the worst in Amerir.m I airplane history, Previous to (his. the | largest number killed in the wreck of j n heavier-than-air craft occurred Jan- 1 uary 14, 1936, at Goodwin. Ark., when 17 died. Meyers, who accompanied a searching party headed by Sheriff Frank L. Narramorc, fixed Ihe scene of the Wreck as on the Utah side of the Wyoming-Utah border. Carl Reynolds, staff photographer of the Salt Lake Telegram, after flying over the scene of the accident, .said "il doesn't seem possihl thai anyone- survived Ihe crash. We flew as elo.se above the wreckage as we dared, and could see not a si(.'n of Ihe 11) people it had carried." Four women and 15 men were on board the huge "Mainliner." one of the new mid powerful Douglas planes of the United Air Lines, when it left Cheyenne. Wyo., Sunday night at l>:2. r > p. m.

Our country in the years after the World war. The climax was a panic in 192'J—• and then Mr. Kooscvt-H came in. Mr Roosevelt seemingly improved matters -but he did it with government money, and furthermore, money that he borrowed. America still doesn't know ex- netly where she stands -for a business kept going on constant borrowing is no business at all. We are R.'ing to know pretty .shortly where we stand. The government's borrowing is at an end. If the well Mr. Roosevelt has been priming all these years won't give any water oil its own account, then we'll plug it up and net a new driller. Meanwhile ~ I am awfully tired of hearing about mythical rich men who control destiny and make money march. The lute Arthur Cutten. greatest wheat speculator who ever lived, .said after retuement that no living being could rig markets or con- 'trul prices beyond the briefest of moments. For, he added. DO man knows when there will be rain and when there will be drouth. Mr Cutten. had he been an industrialist, would have phrased it almost the same. He would have tiid: No man knows when there will be new inventions, new human desires, and changing (.•ishifios. . . . Yet any of these can destroy one man's fortune and build another's. In our worship of slick-paper niiig.i/me heroes and rough-paper newspaper c,ods we Americans arc idolutruns- and stupid. for we attribute to men whom we don't know such powers that 'hoiilii our neighbor claim them would rrovoke laughter. We atuibutc lr> distant men control over weather and money. And for tl:e sound 'if a voice- on the radio we would give away an empire of freemen.

Vesey told the Hope Kiwanis club at its luncheon meeting Tuesday noon at New Capital hotel. "Independence of thought is our privilcdge, and is the backbone of our government. H is better to be governed badly b.v the people of our own choosing than to be governed by an autocrat. During the 150 years that our government has been operating our experience has taught us that," Mr. Vesey declared. "Years ago we did not hear so much about patronage—but today the president or the governor of a state can control the legislative branch of government b.v patronage. "With a situation like this it leaves cnly the judicial branch as a counter check upun the executive branch where you have a man at that head who wants to be powerful and dominating. "If the president's views on the su- premo court issue were adopted by congress—-then your judicial branch of government would be subject to the views of your chief executive. "Adoption of the Ne\v Deal program 100 per cent does not justify the destruction of the judicial branch of government. Where would you be when this man goes out of office^and another man takes his place who wants power'.' "As long as I am a citizen of the United Stales 1 want to see our government remain like it is—free and independent with equal rights to all men. The only way to keep us free ;aid protected is to ktep the courts clean ami independent "When our court is not an independent body your rights as a citizen are gone. The court is the only safeguard to unj democracy. The principle of government would be all uroiu it ihe court was controlled. There is nothing today that protects \<>u u> mm-h ;<s !ht- judicial branch of gi'VL-iiiDit-in. Unless the court la kept life yuii a.- L iluena would be dependent upon one man—instead of ihc merits of your case. "The court serves as a balance wheel, a check upon government.

A. J. Sabbath, Illinois Democrat,, in a telegram ,to President Roosevelt Tuesday charged that the stock market slump was directly traceable to a "Wall Street conspiracy." He urged strong measures be taken against them immediately to save the nation from a recurrence of the 1929 debacle. Drops Again Tuesday NEW YORK-On-The stock market rallied after a two-and-a-half- hour tailspin under huge selling Tuesr day, leading shares recovering a portion oi wide-spread early losses. The spll-off, which followed Monday's break, was on the heaviest volume in more than four years. Prices dropped as much as ?15 a share early, but recovery cut many of these losses. Crash Monday Weakened,by,a steady ^treaj since*-' mid-August, the stock market had gone down before selling pressure Monday into the worst plunge in more than four years. Losses in some leading industrial issues Monday mounted to $10 a share and more before the closing gong. Prices were beaten down to the lowest since July 6, 1935, measured by the Associated Press average price of 60 stocks. Wall Street experts failed to point out immediately any single cause. It was noted, however, the downward push began in earnest about the time the American Iron & Steel Institute announced, after midday, that national operations in the industry had dropped to 55.8 per cent of capacity from 63.6 per cent a week ago and 74.2 a year ago. Also mentioned were damaged margin accounts being liquidated following the long decline in share prices from mid-August and world tension over European and Far Eastern crises. A new record was set as 1,014 stock Issues were traded on the "big board" —four more than the exchange's previous record at the height of the 1929 collapse. Total transactions, however, were far under those in wide breaks before federal controls were clamped down on speculative activity. The turnover was 3,227,520 shares, heaviest since last March 3, compared with 2,533,270 last Friday. Half of Gains Lost Since stocks rounded the recovery top last March, more than half of the gains on the rise from the 1932 lows have been swept away by recurrent waves of liquidation. Motor, steel, farm implement, chemical, mail order and other industrial shares in bullish frfvor when "inflation" psychology ruled were among the chief sufferers, Chrysler, down from a 1937 peak above 5135, finished at 562.25, off 511 for the day. Reere, a farm implement issue, yielded 515 at 571.50 compared with the year's top of 5143.50. United States Steel was off 57 at 561.50 against a 1937 peak of 5126.50 and Bethlehem Steel dropped to 549.50, of£ more than ?8 for the day, on its comedown from a recovery top of 5105.50. Recession has become more noticeable lately in building, textile, and other lines in the van of the recovery march last spring. Unlike stocks, however, business retains the bulk of the recovery gains, judging by various statistical yardsticks.
