PRICE 5c COP'S MAY RELAX BANKHEAD Here and There -Editorial By ALEX. H. WASHBURN- Lottery Is Adopted by New York City for Relief Funds Mayor LaGuardia Expected to Sign Board of Aldermen's Bill AIM TO BEAT LAW THE most common notion among the people regarding 1 national business is that America, having exhausted her frontier development, has nowhere to go in looking for new business activity. Well, 1 can tell you from personal experience that this is all foolishness. <v what j{ the railroads are all built? Billions remain to be- spent on transcontinental highways. The discovery of this miiy surprise you. You thought our highways were just about completed. But you arc aii v,rang. Take our famous Broadway of America, for instance. I regret to inform you Unit midway between Memphis and Nashville, in Tennessee, it drops off onto an old-style crown macadam road, a slow-speed road with narrow cuts and dangerous turns. East of Nashville, through the mountains to Knoxvillc, the Broadway degenerates into a hard-surfaced cow- trail, with hardly room enough for two cars to pass. Altogether, it would take probably SO million dollars to put the Tennessee section of the Broadway of America (No. 70) on a par with its competing transcontinental roads farther north, Nos. 20 and 40. Tennessee tourist trade is being badly hurt by the condition of No. 70, and it is only from Memphis westward that the Broadway begins to gel the kind of traffic we sec passing through Hope every day. You have read in national magazines about the fine three and four- lane roads existing between the major cities of the East—but even today there is not a single transcontinental highway wider than two lanes, except for n dozen miles or so out of a big city. No. 20 from Cleveland to Chicago is two lanes wide, and so is No. 40, the Columbus-Indianapolis-St. Louis route. So, we still have enormous public "Association" to Distribute Prizes in Form of Officers' "Salaries" NEW YORK —(/I')— New York City Tuesday turned to gambling- care for .'iOO.OOO needy. •to help The lottery bill, carefully phrased so that its legality may not be questioned and twp measures imposing new taxes on the city's residents were rushed through the city legislature— the Board of Aldermen and the Board 01 Estimate. Mayor LaGuardia was reported to be ready to sign the three measures, pushed through to raise from $20,000000 to ?30,000,000 to carry on relief work halted when the city's funds wcie exhausted last Friday. Oilier Kclicf Plans In addition tc the lottery law these Riots Rake Maine City; Martial Law for Strike Area Textile Mills Stormed by Strikers—Clubs and Stones Fly REPORT ~fo" F. D. R. Mediation Board Document Eagerly Awaited by All Sides : By the Associated Press Violence flared anew in the textile strike Wednesday as guardsmen were ordered to Watcrvillo, Me., after the wildest riot of the strike in Maine to date. Indications were that the city would be placed under martial law following rioting in which mill property was stormed and police and strikers fought with clubs, stones and tear-gas. Meanwhile, President Roosevelt, o- waited a report from the strhcc mediation board. Ihc report was eagerly awaited by al sides in th chopc that it might contain a clue to the settlement of the strike. two steps were taken by thc two I works ahead of us, not to mention the [ rebuilding of thc railroads and their equipment, and the replacement of obsolete machinery in thc other vast plants of private industry. boards to raise relief funds: 1. One-tenth of one per cent tax on gross earnings of businesses. 2. An income tax equal to 15 per cent ol all federal taxes puid "during 1934. If the mayor signs the tax measures residents of the city will pay three income taxes in addition to any realty or other imposts. There income taxes wil be federal, state and city. Lottery Plan Explained In an attempt to make its scheme legal the city would operate the "lottery" in this way—the formation of an "association" with members paying 52.50, a tentative price in "dues." At various times the "association" would elect "officers." This would be done by drawing names from a jury wheel. The officers would be pcad high salaries, the amounts not as yet determined, and in this manner the prix.es would be distributed. It was estimated the "association" operated separately from the city, but with its Board of Trustees selected by the mayor and approved by the Board of Aldermen, would yield from $12,000,000 to ¥15,000,000 a year. II Per Cent to City The lottery would turn over 44 per cent, of its receipts to the city comptroller for relief purposes. The' remainder would be expended for prizes and for expenses. Although the mayor can approcvc tin 1 lottery bill immediately—ho must wail, five days before signing the tax measure— a determined fiijh against it by churchmen was anticipated. The lottery plan originally suggested by Borough President James . Lyon.'.', a Democrat, was opposed Tuesday by the Rev. Dr. Christian F. Rcis- ne'r of the Broadway Temple, who said the "decent people of the city" would not accept it. A court test was anticipated by the administration. It was tentatively estimated that the tax of 15 per cent of the federal income taxes paid on incomes earned in the city during 193) would yield from ?lfi.000,000 to $20,000,000. The estimates on the one-ttenth of one per cent tax, applicable to gross receipts of corporations and professional men exceeding ?15,000 a year, .ipproxiimiled $7,500,000 a year.

Munitions Maker PlayedBoth Sides American Industrialist Furnishes "Ins" and "Outs" in Cuba WASHINGTON—(/P)—The powerful influence an American munitions maker wielded in Cuban affairs was told to a senate committee Tuesday through documents and the somewhat reluctant testimony of the arms dealer himself—John W. Young, of Pitts- burgs. Young is president of Federal Laboratories, Inc., manufacturer of and dealer in gas bombs, submachine guns and other war materials. told that Young's company has sold to virtually every government to rule in Cuba within the past few years. Evidence portrayed Young as advising leaders of the present regime in Cuba at a time when the Orau San Martin government was slill ostcnsihily in powei. "Did you ever hear of the Logan iiel?" Senator Vandenberg, Republican. Michigan, asked Young. "I've never heard of it," replied Young. The Logan act prohibits civilians from meddling in diplomatic matters. The committee heard that the com- panys sales of tear bombs and nausea gas had increased substantially during the present textile strike. Young said his company had sold ga.s for usr in other strikes also. He named particularly the Seattle longshoremen's dispute. Later a series of letters .supplemented by te.-timony from Young and Strike Ranks Increase WASHINGTON -(/P)—A 20.000 increase in the army of the strike idle, despite an unremitting drive to reopen Southern textile mills was revealed by an independent survey Tuesday as labor leaders arranged lo extend thc great walkout to all branches of thc industry within the week. The national strike committee of thc United Textile Workers was voted authority by that organization's executive council to call out at its discretion some 100,000 workers in a hitherto unaffected textile division. Leaders declared they would do so by Monday at the latest. Figures gathered by the Associated indicated 421,000 out; of thc mills as compared with a little more than 400,- OOfl at th c close of last week. ' Manufacturers contended the figures wccr far too high .Labor leaders say they arc too low. Slonn Claims Gain George A. Sloan, President of the Cotton Textile Institute said that "at least 25,000 cotton textile employes in the South" had returned to work in the last two days under National Guard protection. Developments had proved, he said, that a large proportion of those who left the mills had done so because of intimidation by pickets and flying squadrons. "We hav o contended from the beginning." said Sloan, "that our workers wanted to work and quit only <• cause they were intimidated. The reaction during Monday and Tuesday now that they have protection, bears out that contention." Francis J. Gorman, national strike leader, placed thc total number at | 500,000 and argued that, while some j mills hud reopened, only n small number of the employes had actually gone back to work. - -—••»- - — Three Arrested in Car Theft Effort Visitor R.

Tile order—intended to make the Fascist land an "armed nation"—prescribed schooling in welfare for every Italian older than 8 and younger than 33. Tuesday night Italy's newspapers in huge headlines hailed thc ''revival of the spirit of the Ancient Romans" asserting unanimously that more and better trained material would be provided for the country's high-speed war machine. "Thc functions of the citizen and the soldic rare indivisible in the Fascist state," II Duce and his cabinet proclaimed a.s they decreed what was believed to be the most sweeping peacetime mobilization in history.

Hcncefor ward "it begins as soon as a boy is old enough ,to learn and continues as long as a citizen is able to carry arms in defense of his country." Thc cabinet's move, it announced was intended to fan the love of war in Italy's youth. "The purpose of thc first stage of compulsory pro-military training," it said, "is to give boys a passion for military life through frequent contacts with thc armed forces whose warlike glories and traditions will be rc-cvok- 1." ' A liasion body between armed forces and all organizations co-operating in "thc formation of an armed nation" was instituted, with an army generally at its head. The purpose of the second stage of pro-military training, thc cabinet explained, "is to perfect thc spiritual, physical and military training of a young man so as to form a soldier physically and technically prepared as dii individual and to prepare the specialized element of which thc armed i'orccs have so much need—especially itc army and air forces." At 18 the Italian is obliged to bear jrms, the cabinet decreed, although 'ie remains under the jurisdiction of arbitration. Bankhead Takes Action JASPER, Ala.— (IP) —United States Senator John H.

Mr. Bankhead said that a crop less than, the 10.400,000 bales allowed as "tax free" under thc act would be harvested. "I favor, however, preserving the rights in the exemption certificates of all producers who were unable this year to produce the amount of cotton alloted to them as tax exempt," he said. "If the act is in operation next year these producers will be entitled to that much cotton in addition to the regular allotments made them undqr whatever allotment basis may be adopted for next year." "Eliminating thc tax en cottoni in excess of allotments, however, wi'l hot involve the continuance of.ths Bankhead cotton control act," the senator stresses.
