PRICE 5c COWS ESCAPES KIDNAP ews Revi lew By BRUCE CATION DEAUTIFUL theory occasionally runs head-on into un•D pleasant fact, and when it does, the result is apt to be rather messy. This seldom happens more often anywhere than in the field of criminology. — ___—. —.<.-. T| )C criminologi;;!, that is, can devise an enlightening and humane method nf dealing with lawlbrcnkcrs. On paper it will be a very fine thing indeed. Rut to mil it into practice calls for the utilization of human elements and these element,* seldom cut the way the theorist wishes. A fair example is to be seen in an address recently made by Dr. Waller N. Thayer, Jr., state commissioner of correction for New York. Dr. Thayer proposed that pudges he deprived of the power to send criminals to prison for definite terms. Instead he would have all sentences left indeterminate with release of prisoners left dependent on the dici- sion of the parole board, the prison department and the correction department. X X X These authorities would study each prisoner's ca.sc and would release him when they felt that he was ''mentally ready to rejoin society." This might be very soon after his imprisonment, or it might be delayed for years; and it would not necessarily have much to do with the gravity of the crime for which he had been sentenced. Now such a scheme is clearly the prduct of an intelligent and humane mind which has observed that our present method of handling criminals is both expensive and inefficient. In theory, at least, it is nothing less than simple comon sense. XXX But to put it into practice, we would have to use the cxicting mechanism Dad' Farley Dies Thursday After 3 Week's of Illness Proud Son of Erin Succumbs at Home of His Daughter, Age 92 WELL KNOWN HERE Was Confidant and Beloved Friend of School Students S. C. (Dad) Farley, proud son of Erin, died Thursday night at the age of 92. Death came at the home of his daughter, Mrs, James Roberts, after an illness cf three weeks. For 21 years "Dad" has been custodian of Fair Park, confidant and beloved friend of all students of Hope schools. He was a favorite of llic older folk.s too. "Dad." as everyone called him, was born in Limmcrick, Ireland, on March IV, 1843.

Orders Beer Tax Collections Special Assessment Levied Against Dealers in Dry States ATLANTA -(/I'/- Georgians who liUc li brewed their thirst with legally or even legal liquor, faced ii dry future as the federal government f/nlrrcd the .slate's retail beer and liquor dealers lo pay a special tax nf $1000 iinmedialely. W. K. Page collector of internal revenue. anmmiH-i.'d here that Washington officials had instructed him lo i'<:llt'c.l the lax, a special assessment levide against dealers in dry states by the revenue act of 1926. Mr. Page ordered all dealers to pay (heir lax at the nearest 7.0110 office of the Internal Revenue Bureau. Few dealers arc believed to be in a position to pay, but many may meet the assessments and continue in busi- .. self defense. Going out of bus- Page said, will not exempt the dralers from payment of Ihe tax, since all lho.sc in business now are required to pay. Payment of the tax would allow Ihe dealers lo continue to operate until next uly. The ? 1,000 assessment is in addition lo the ?25 stamp tax liquor dealers and the ?20 tax beer dealers pcad in July of this year. The fact Unit dealers bought the stamps is considered evidence that they owe the new tax. Pa-sons cnHiigcd in either the beer or liquor business without paying the new assessment arc subject to a fine of $1.000 or one year in prison, it convicted, and a 25 per cent addition to the lax. Polite Bandits Rob Bank in Alabama MlI.l.rORT. Ala. -(/'I')— Two un- nniskcd bandits, working so politely that a customer thought them bank examiners, robber the Millport State Bank of an undetermined amount of currency Thursday and escaped. The men entered the bank during the noon hour ;md forced Miss Bertye Richard:.;, a.-;, istailt cashier, into trie vault, and went ubout the business oi robbing the; institution. A customer who entered the bank, durin gthe robbery said the two men were so business-like and polite that he thuuglit them bank examiners. pretty bad. In other words, the most enlightened system imaginable can be no stronger than ihV'men who operate it. If your parolc board is appointed by a Lcn Small or a Hucy Long it will run your parole system in a Lcn Small or a Huey Long manner, no matccr how intelligently the system itself was organized. Men like Dr. Thaycr do us a great service by pointing out ways by which we can meet the problems of crime and punishment more efficiently and justly. But they arc helpless until we ourselves insist on putting public office in the hands of men who will bring real devotion of duty with them to their jobs. XXX Once in a while people do things so increditablc brutal and callous thiU one is almost moved to despair of the human race. Doug Davis, speed flyer, crashed and was killed during a race at the National Air Races recently. In a few minutes some 3,500 people had formed a mob about the wreckage of the plane. They tore the plane to bits for souvenirs. One woman jerked a button from the dead flyer's body and sold il for $5. The mob was so dense thai an um- buliiii'jff was unable to reach 'Ihe scene. When police and race officials tried to force the mob back, they were cursed and asked, ''Why should you have all the fun?" It i.s impossible to find words lo express Ihe disgust which decent poo- pie must have al behavior <>f thai kind. The spectacle is tnouch lo mnkv a profound pessimist out of everyone who observed it. XXX Jesse L. Livcrmore, speculator who holds the title of "the boy plunger of Wall Street" went into bankruptcy early this summer. Now he has paid off iii.s $2,000,000 debts and has a comfortable fortune for biinscU. Honest toil and careful frugality have rescued many a man from financial disaster.

Bobcats Working Hard for Opening Battle Here With" Hamburg Coach Foy Hammons, starting his first year as dictator of the Hope High School football squad, received a hard blow Friday when five promising prospects were declared ineligible. The fice arc: Jack Turner, Dick Moore, Cecil Houston, Buffalo Kesterson and Raymond Urban. The loss of Turner will probably be felt more than the others, as he was one of Ihe team';; most potent blocking backs. Incligibility of Kestcrson, 190-pound guard and a newcomer to the Bobcats wil be felt. All wcer ruled out on account of failing lo pass required scholaristic work during the last semester. The head man of the Bobcats, however, is not down-hearted. "We're going to have a fighting football team, and one that I expect to break even, although we play all the top-notchers in the state with the exception of Pine Bluff and Fort Smith." Two More Hard Teams Coach Hammons announced Friday htat he had added ElDorado and Hamburg to the schedule. Hamburg, one of the outstanding teams in .southesat Arkansas, will come here on September 21 for the opening game. The change was made necessary when Lockcsbuvg cancelled. ElDorado will replace Broken Bow, Okla., on the schedule. The game is listed for October 19, and will be played here. The Bcbcals have been working out daily for the past two weeks with a large number of candidates reporting each day. From indications the present squad has a good punch, are shifty on their feet and have a fine spirit. Scrimagc practice is expected to continue until about next Wednesday when the squad will taper off with signal drills for theopcning battle against Hamburg.

Arrested Strike Area Is Peaceful After Bloody Battles No .Need for Federal Troops Is Reported From Rhode Island CAROLINA IS QUIET Governor of Georgia Takes Steps to Prevent Disorders PROVIDENCE, R. I.—(/P)—Governor Green declared after a conference with Adjutant General Herbert R. Dean Friday morning that the strike situation in the state had been so quiet overnight that "there will be no occasion for calling on the federal government for troops." His remark Hint "the real story of the Morro Castle disaster has not been told" brought about the arrest of George Alnffnn, shown as he testified in the New York Inquiry. Alajfiia, second radio officer of the burned liner, Is held for further questioning. He Is from Ft. Wayne, Ind. Food Loan Used in Arming Nation Wheat Fund to China Is Used to Purchase Guns and Airplanes WASHINGTON. — (/P) — Chairman Nye told in an interview Friday that the senate munitions committee had evidence indicating China used a 510,000,000 wheat loan from the United States last year to purchase guns and airplanes. He made this statement as the committee prepared to conclude its investigation into the activities of the DuPont company munitions manufacturers. Nye would not say from whom the munitions were supposed to have been prchasecl. Committee agents are studying the evidence, he added, preparatory to making it public. The United States lenctc China the $10,000.000 to finance purchase of American wheat and an additional 520,000,000 lo buy cotton. Thi swas done to bolster up American foreign trade, to aid China feed her hungry millions and to help eliminate domestic farm surpluses. Official Japanese circles have contended the wheat actually was converted into munitions. Meanwhile it was made known at Mexico, D. F., that that Mexican ambassador to Washington had been instructed to protest to this government against bringing (ho IIHIWS of President Rodriguez and olhc rMexiran officials into tho lifarinas. Testimony had been received—and denied on behalf of (lie preside-ill— ihat. ho had interested himself in war material sales and purchases. It was the E. I.

Du Pont sharply denied that the war time profits of his company '".v outsido the field of patriotism, and declared most of them came from sales to the allies. Ho did not believe the war department would be as efficient as private industry in furnishing war material in time of necessity. Four More Bodies Found On Steamer Carolina Quiet CHARLOTTE.— (ff>)— A clash between soldiers and pickets at Burlington, North Carolina, Friday in which five persons received bayonel wounds, marked an otherwise quiet strike front in the Carolinas.

Thursday Governor Theodore Francis Green called the Rhode Island legislature into extraordinary session after a telephone conversation with President Roosevelt in which Green said the president told him he would arrange for federal troops for Rhode Island as soon as a formal request for them was received. A resolution which would have declared a state of insurrection and would have called upon the federal government for aid was prepared but its introduction was deferred. A bill to give the governor authority to close the mills at his discretion, when emergencies arose was passed by the Democratic-controlled lower house but was defeated 25 to 15 in the Republican controlled senate. A second bill which would authorize the governor to spend ?100,000 for an emergency increase in the stale police /forces was referred lo a committe'R by the lower house of the assembly. School Proposal to Be Discussed Thorn's Solution to School Problems Will Come Before Meeting LITTLE ROCK —(/P)— Stale school officials canvassed the school bond refunding plan advanced by Representative Harve B. Thorn of Poinsett county, with the likelihood that it will come up for discussion before the .state board of education here on Monday. Thorn is slated for speaker of the 1934 house. W. E. Phipps, commissioner of education, expressed the belief that congressional action would be necessary to enable the reconstruction finance corporation to finance the indebtedness of Arkansas schools. Congressman D. D. Terry worked out such a measure at the last congress, Phipps recalled. A survey disclosed that only nine state including Arkansas would benefit from the measure and it failed of widespread support. The stale education chief expressed the hope that the legislature would be iibel to work out some plan for refunding school bonds and disposing of the kindred financial school problem. In the meantime he said no word had come from Washington that would indicate how soon funds might be availabcl to Arkansas' request for 52,500.00 federal aid to operate schools. Arkansas has a bonded school debt nf approximately 529.000,000. Pripps said principal and interest charges require a-large part of available revenues, in attributing the present financial plight of the schools to heavy debt charges. Seven hundred students at dental colleges in England are graduated annually; there i;re 14,000 dentists i" the country.

Lose Their '"'*"*; •••' Lives ;; By the Associated Press The angry waters of China's Yellow river, ripping out dikes with a power man has been unable to restrain, continued their murderous career Friday in the fertile valley which is known as the nation's granary. Dispatches from sodden Honnn province have not yet estimated the loss of life and vast property destruction in the current floods, but reports which have filtered out indicate another major calamiyt. Reports from Kaifcng describe as desperate tho plight of thousands of farmers in Honan and Southern Hopel, where the river has reached a width of 30 miles. Dikes costing $1,000,000 a year to maintain have been swept aside. Farms were inundated to a depth of 10 feet, and many persons were drowned. More than a hundred million Chinese live on the plain across which the river winds and which according to legend is visited by major floods at 40 year intervals, with smaller ones in between. The Yellow river ha slaken millions of lives since 2000 B. C. in the disastrous flood of 1887 a million, it was estimated, perished. So great was the suffering that unrest amont; the millions of refugees led to demonstrations against foreigners. The strangers were charged with China's misfortunes and the armies of tlii? great powers were brought to Ihe gyles of Peking (now Pciping) to rescue di lomats besiebed by the Boxers.

Dr. Brabham agrees with the boys ihut it's not right to continue and longer than necessary under a name which excludes attendance of any but females. Brinker Takes Witness Stand Testifies That He Signed "Confessions" Because He Feared Life 'IEXARKANA — Edwin Brinker, on trial for the second Ume for the slaving of P. A. McSwain, took the atnd stand in district court at New Boston Friday morning to testify that he had signed two confessions of the crime because he feared that he would be killed by officers grilling him if he did not do so. It was the first time that Brinker has testified in the case. He was not placed on the stand in the former trial which resulted in a hung jury. Brinker was the first witness called to the stand. Speaking deliberately and without flurry, Brinker declared, "I signed the two statements I gave the officers after being questioned all night because I believed that if I did not do so they would kill me, and I still believe it." Brinker declared that the all night "truth session" which ended in his "confessions' began with only Rangers Buck Weaver and George Joi»7-* .son present. "Chilcothc, a police officer, came in and said "we're going lo find out who killed McSwaui. 'You arc the one who did it.' At that. I jumped up oul of the chair and Weaver shoved me back. Johnson hit me five or six times." "Johnson said: 'You don't know who you are fooling with. We're Texas Rangers and I"ll slap your head off in a minue.' Then throe o:' four poli.e came in. One of them woul dask me a question. Before I could answer that question another one would ask me scmclliing else. They crowded about me and got right up into my face. They kept this up until about midnight. The longer they kept me the worse they got. Weaver and Johnson slapped me numbers o ftimes. "I heard Jonhnson say to Weaver, "better let up a little bit, might kill him,' Brinker related. Rich Oklahoma Man Hurled Out of Car in Texas 11 H. D.

He had ?56 on his person which , the kidnapers did not take. Despite torture by his kidnapers , and two confederates who joined them for a time near Wichita Falls, Snell steadfastly refused to sign notes or checks for $50,000 to gain his freedom, he said. • . •• .': The policeman .brought Snell to PO* lice headquarters and Gus Jones, head of the United States Bureau i of Investigation, was then called. Jones was one of the government agents who solved the kidnaping of Charles Urs- chell, wealthy Oklahoma City oil man. . Thrown to Road , t , Knell's escape came through unusual' circumstances.

A surren lurch of the car then threw him to the road, Snel said he was not aware of what became of the kidnapers because he was knocked unconscious and remained that way for some Ume. When Ermie saw hom, Snell was bleeding from cuts and abrasions on. his face and head. His shirt was in shreds and his clothes generally disheveled. Federal Agents on Case ' Investigation of the case was turned over to the federal agents because transportation of Snell from one state to another makes the offense a federal one, Jones listened to the preliminary account of Snell's kidnaping and then sent him to the hotel to get some sleep. Snell said the kidnaping had been preceded by two demands' for $10,000. One demand was in the form of a note tackedto a barn on his farm. The other wa sa letter which came throug hthe mails, The victim said two masked men seized him at his home, commandeered his automobile and drove away. Near Wichita Falls the kidnapers were met by two confederates in another automobile. He said the four tortured him by choking him, stepping on his neck and poking pistols in his side. "I told them to go ahead and kill me, that I wouldn't sign anything," Snell said. Sn"l said the two original kidnapers took him from Wichita Falls in the car which the confederates had at the scene of the torture. He declared that he remembered little of what happened during the day.

"No Dancing" at Monticello A. & M. Enrolling Aggie Students Also Warned About "Uprisings" MONTICELLO, Ark. —(/P)— Tho "no dancing" sign was hung out again at Monticello A. & M. College here as students trekked into Arkansas' second largest educational institution to register for the fall term. Still standing by the gurs of strict clieiph'ne which inspired a campus strike last year and two subsequent unsuccessful movements to oust him from office, President Frank Horsfal of the college was backed up by his board in the promulgation of rules for the new semester. Students arriving at the college today found this announcement posteth "The board takes a definite stand against dancing and hereby prohibits the students dancing either on or oft the campus during the college session." And the students will probably think twice before they start a strike about it, as a warning was sounded conceivming "insubordination."
