Brothers Are Held for Killing Near Pine Bluff Found Under Train Is Identified as James White NEGROES ARRESTED Were Forced to Carry Lifeless Body and Place It on Railroad Tracks PINE BLUFF -(/I')— Domes-tic trouble was blamed Thursday by Sheriff Garland Blewstcr for the slaying of James White, 23, whose mangled body was found on the Cotton Bell right-of-way near Fordycc Wednesday. Sheriff Brewstcr said that Joe and Ililcy Shellon, brothers, were held on murder charges in connection with the crime. Sheriff BrevMriTr said that White was killed at Joe Shclton's house and his lifeless body was placed on the railroad tracks to cover up the murder. The sheriff also announced Dial two negroes were held as material witnesses after they had volunlarily lold officers that White was killed at the home of Shclton. The negroes said they were forced to carry the body to the tracks. Riley Shclton was quoted as saying that White was killed by an accidental discharge of a shotgun: • ~~ Considerable difficulty was cncoun tcrcd in identifying the body.

Thornc of Poinsclt county came forward Wednesday with tentative plans which he said might solve the state's educational problems. In presented his plans, 7Tiom, slated to be spcaycr of the House, said that a solution of Arkansas' perplexing sdiool problem will be the most important matter before the next assembly. Asserting he believed the problem could be met through federal financing and without additional state taxation, Thorn said: "With the proper presentation of facts to the federal government, it car. be induced through the RFC to refund the school bonds of the several districts with federal funds by bu.ring at a discount the outstanding bonds of the district. "The rate of interest could be re duced from six per cent, the present to around two per cent, which woulc mean a saving of $1,280,000 a year in interest alone. This would be used to supplement the teachers' fund so inadequate at the present time. 'The federal government has re financed the public school indebted ness of New York and Chicago ii this manner, and with the , proper legislation such an arangement rrdgh .he made with the R.F.C., ,to assist in pulling us out of the' hole. If so, no additional taxes need be levied," Has Second Plan Another plan which Thorn said he had under consideration, would provide for a six-day school week insteac of five and a program completing the grammar grades in seven years insteac of eight, nder this arrangement al school expenses could be reduced anc without affecting efficiency, Thorn contended. Meanwhile high state offiicals were undetermined as to what their next step would be in an effort to obtain f2,500,000 federal aid for the public chools of Arkansas. In reply to requests for early action m the state's pctilion for aid, Dr. L. 1. Alderman, director of emergency education, advised tha no relief funds were available for Arkansas schools at the present time. No word has been received from a petition to President Roosevelt for assistance in obtaining school aid. Congressman D. D. Terry of the fifth district has offered his services in solving the problem and has agreed to go to Washington and present the needs of Arkansas to the relief ad- minislralion. The presidential attitude was expected to determine whether Terry would make the trip. Meanwhile school districts have been advised to open Ihe 1934-35 term and lo continue classes al long as possible. Legislators Asked to I/end Aid LITTLE ROCK -(/P)— Arkansas senators and congressmen were asked *" lend their support to the stale's petition wor uon for ^,500,000 federal relcif money with which lo open schools. W. E. Phipps, conussioncr of edu- calion, asked members of the congress ional delegation to "sec or write the president and Harry L. Hopkins and impress upon them Ihc urgenl need for imemdiatc action on behalf of Arkansas schools." Phipps said thai Arkansas cannot realize the full benefits of federal aid if the grant is poslponed because Arkansas children will be needed nexl spring on Ihe farms lo assisl in producing the necessities of life. He said reports indicated that rural families, despairing of relief for their schools, were moving lo nearby cities where schools were opened.

L; OrderReds Held; Governor Green Calls Out Legislature for Big Appropriation ASKS FOR U. S. TROOPS Communists Blamed for Inciting Riots in Rhode ; Island ,' By Associated Press Rhode Island, the newest storm center of the general textile strike, took ' steps to avoid more bloodshed Thursday. , i Governor Green Was consireding a request for federal troops after a wild night of rioting at Woonsocket. \. He held conversations with Presi- , dent Roosevelt, and declared that the Rhode Island military resources were i exhausted, in his plea for federal troops. Twelve persons dead Thursday and^i scores were injured after the Woon- , socket rioting Wednesday night. Governor Green called an emergency session of the legislature in a request for a 5100,000 appropriation to increase the state police force in strike centers where. violence is threatened. Governor Green also ordered r the arrest of every communist in the state. North and South Carolina Thursday saw additional mills reopen and more 1 employes return to work as Natiohal Guardsmen patrolled the strike centers. WOONSOCKET, R. I.—(/P)—Maj. C. C.

Fresh from his sweeping victory over the New Orleans "ring" forces of Mayor T. Semme's Walmsley, his last major political opposition in the state, the Louisianan "Kingfish" temporarily sheathed, his sword and took to bed to recuperate after one of the most sensational campaigns in his entire tumultous career. One avowed goal remained. In prom ising vengeance against the city which had hitherto bucked his political reins the senator avowed he would remove the whole New Orleans city administration from office. That purpose remained, and the. "Kingfish" showed no indicalion lo let viclory at the polls interefer wilh his announced plan. His legislalive investigating com- millec, which has been hearing testimony of purported "graft arji««i»r- ruplion" in Mayor Walmsl«5r*s city administration, met for a few minutes Wednesday, but in the abscnM of Long adjourned to meet again at 10 a.m. Friday. Long's physician announced at the hearing htat he had "forcibly" put the senator to bed and planned to keep him there 24 hours. Long had been working night and day in his war with Walmsley, which was climaxed by Tuesday's election. Ward leaders of Mayor Walmsley's old regular organization gathered in conclave lo map plans. Walmsley announced afler the meeting thai leaders had lold him of purported irre- gularilies al some of Ihe polls, which he said he would communicate to his candidates for action if they deemed adivsablc. Some 2,000 or more national guesrd- mcn brought to New Orleans from thronughout the state to insure a "peaceful" election, were reported to be ready to proceed back to their homes with only a small number of them remaining to "protect" the legislative investigating committee. „ rtibing stores.'' ,.,. National Guardsmen and city police fired volleys into the crowds at frequent intervals and six persons were taken to the Woonsocket hospital, four of them in a serious,.condition. Police and guardsmen ran out of tear gas and sent a hurried call to Boston to replenish their supply. The mob continued to close in on the Woonsocket rayon plant, ; the storm center, and Ma}or Lind, hi command of 155 guardsmen said the only way he could keep them back was to continue to fire into their midst. Police Repulsed As word reached police that hoodlums were destroying property t ln the business section, a half mile from the rayon plant, two patrol cars were .dispatched to the scene. As soon as the. crowd caught sight of the machines, they stoned the officers and forced them to flee. The crowd was estimated at almost 10,000 and groups went about the city turning false fire alarms and stoning busses. The rioting broke out here only a few hours after Gov. Theodore F. Green had issued a statement which called a halt to hostilities at Saylesville where three men had been shot in rioting during the past two days. The governor's statement followed a conference with military' and union officials during which, the governor said, it had been agreed to limit pickets at the Sayles Finishing Company plant to 140. "I beg of you to keep away from the neighborhood," Governor Green pleaded. "This is not an armistice," he emphasized. Earlier in the evening at Saylesville, gangs of young hoodums roamed the town, wreaking considerable damage to property but were slowly driven to cover by soldiers. The governor's plea brought comparative peace to the turbulent area. Attorneys for Shank Ask Sanity Hearing LITTLE HOCK -(/P)— Attorneys for Mark H.
