Neuse, who couldn't tind a job, smiled contentedly today as a police magistrate sentenced him to one year in the house of correction.

WASHINGTON, March President Roosevelt's project to put unemployed men to work in Ihe forests was passed by the House tonight after smashing through a mild revolt, and being jammed temporarily In one of thn worst parliamentary tangles in years. The bill, which was attacked to-day rs an undue grant of power, now goes back to the Senate for ac tion on two amendments which tha House added to tho measure.

The Senate passed tha measure yesterday. Debate today was sprinkled with cries of "HltleriHiii." There was no roll call vote. Representative Iteedy (Republican, Maine), who led Ihe tight against tho administration bill, was responsible for the parliamentary maneuver that blocked thn bill temporarily late today jiiHl as the House, whs about to vole.

Striking at tile vitals of Ihe bill alter winning the House that it check its grants of power to Ihe chief executive, Becdy challenged the right of the labor committee, a legislative committee, to (lulhorize the President to divert appropriations, for public works to this project.

After a noisy wrangle Representative. Lozier (Democrat, Missouri), who was presiding, startled Democratic leaders by upholding tho Maine congressman. This would havo removed the appropriation to finance the project. Majority Fluor Leader Joseph W. Hyrns hurriedly moved a recess for ten minutes.

Tho rules committee whh summoned uulckly. returned a few minutes later with a rule making the appropriation in order. The IIouho swiftly adopted (his rule by the necessary two-thirda, 180 to 71. This solved the puzzle for embarrassed Democrats and the proceeded to a final vote. May Itecome, by Night.

BERLIN, March 29. OT Leading representatives of German Jewry appealed to President von Hindenburg, Chancellor Hitler, Cabinet members and the Berlin police president tonight against a Nazi-inspired trade ban against Jews which begins throughout Germany Saturday.

The -appeal expressed confidence that the President and the government will not "let our rights and means of existence be taken from us." Declaring that German Jews had put forth successfully their utmost efforts to counteract reports abroad of Jewish persecutions and foreign trade restriction campaigns, and pledging that they would continue to do so, the document asserted that "despite this, German Jews, as allegedly the guilty party, are now to be ruined. Appeals to Sense of Justice. The appeal was signed by members of the general council of German Jews and the board of Berlin's Jewish community. It appealed to the sense of justice of the German people and added that "the reproach that we injured the German people is a very heavy blow to our honor." The statement continued: "In the interest of truth and justice, we protest against this charge. "Because of the fault of a very few, for whom we never have nor will assume responsibility, economic ruin is being prepared for German Jews who feel they are united to the German fatherland in heart and soul." 12,000 War Dead Cited.

It was pointed out in the message that 12,000 of Germany's 500,000 Jews died in the world war. Direct-action repressive measures by Chancellor Hitler's Nazis got under way against Jews in many parts of Germany today as a prelude to the nation-wide trade and professional attack. It was learned, meanwhile, that Prof. Albert Einstein has taken steps to renounce his Prussian citizenship. Becomes Citizen in 1IIH.

Prof. Einstein, a Jew, became a citizen in 1914 when he accepted a position with the Prussian Academy of Sciences. Upon landing at Brussels after his recent trip to the United States, he wrote to the German consulate there for information about the steps necessary to end his citizenship. He pointed out that he formerly was Swiss. Prof.

Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany, but subsequently his family moved to Switzerland and he became a Swiss citizen. In 1914 he was called to the directorship of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics, member of the Prussian Academy of Science, and then he became a Prussian in political affiliations. Already Bans In Effect. The anti-Jewish trade prohibitions, the deadline for which was set by Nazi party authorities at 10 a. m.

Saturday, already have begun in many sections of the Reich. There were numerous reports of the picketing of Jewish stores and other repressive measures, but Berlin heard of no serious clashes. Chancellor Hitler was quoted by the Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung as having declared at today's Cabinet meeting that it was necessary to take measures against the "atrocity campaign," as otherwise popular indignation might take undesirable forms. The newspaper quoted the chancellor as saying that the situation now is under control and that vio- CONTINUED ON FAGE FOUR. STORE ATTACKS MIAMI, March 29.

THE USUAL run of news includes the bad news published in the New York American, that the Democratic administration will try to force the United States Into the world court. President Roosevelt should prevent that. Thus far he has not indicated that he needs anybody in Europe or any foreign court to tell him what to do. The world court is back door to the League of Nations. Japan, with good sense, has just walked out the front door.

It would seem rather weak and feeble for this countrr to creep into the back door now. If we go into the League of Nations we shall be more or less subject to judges appointed by foreign countries, outnumbering us ten to one. And we know NOW what their judgment would be in matters affecting the United States. They have already decided that, while they owe us billions of dollars, they ought not to pay them and that we should be ashamed to ask for them. Any administration or nation that would put this country or anything concerning it at the mercy of judges appointed by the defaulting nations of Europe would deserve whatever might happen.

And what would happen would not be pleasant for those responsible. Now turn from unpleasant possibilities and look at something agreeable, this southern part of Florida. Seen from the air: tomato fields, long roads, canals, sharks, stingrays and turtle and other interesting things. One of Mr. Litchfield's nonrigid dirigibles, Reliance, built by the Goodyear company, raises you and half a dozen others from the smooth surface of the causeway that connects Miami with Miami Beach.

First, the ship goes west toward the Everglades, over the Miami skyscrapers, across Miami river that winds up towards Lake Okeechobe, where they catch the big garfish. A canal connects river and lake. You study black roofs of houses, long roads that wind through real estate developments. Here and there you see miles of sidewalks, expensively laid, too far from the center, now overgrown with weeds. You see big buildings, erected without reason; windows broken; unnecessary cupolas falling down.

It is a sad reflection of the bursted boom which, in time, will come back stronger than ever. You fly over wide expanses that look like soft thick green carpet. Those carpets are tomato farms. Growers south of Miami ship seventy cars a day to New York. In corners of fields you occasionally see great piles of bright red tomatoes, the "cull" piles.

Tomatoes perfectly good, ripe, sound not quite big enough for New York's market, are thrown away, thousands of bushels. Such is our system of economy, combined with expensive distribution. The tomatoes wasted, joyously ripe, would provide tomato juice with life-giving vitamins for tens of thousands of poor children, orphans' asylums and poor homes. But "there is no no money in that," and that in which "there is no money" does not interest us. Even with all the waste, scientific tomato growing cart be made to pay.

The captain of the Reliance, S. H. Rheppard, speaks with the pilot, Alexander Munro, and the ship heads out toward the ocean and the keys that run in a long disconnected string off Florida's southeastern coast. The first interesting water thing seen is a gigantic turtle. "She would weigh from three to four hundred pounds and make good soup," says Capt.

Sheppard. He uses "she" because that lady turtle paddling slowly is on her way to the sandy beach where she will lay her eggs. Having covered them with hot sand she will return to the ocean to prepare more eggs. The little turtles will hatch, turn instantly toward the sea and trot down. One-third will be eaten by birds before they reach the waters.

Another third of the baby turtles will be swallowed up by fish when they reach the water. Enough will survive to replace that mother turtle and the father turtle somewhere out at sea. You pass over beautiful waters, deep sea green lagoons, with innumerable shallow patches brilliant with the colors of seaweed that grow below the surface. You see sharks darking in and out of the deep green waters, swimming over the shallow patches above the seaweed. There are shoals of them, many thousands in those waters below the airship.

Some are huge creatures, twenty feet long; some small. Each has a powerful propeller on each side about half way between the head and the tail. When the dirigible's shadow suddenly falls on them they do not like it. and dart angrily back and out toward the sunlit waters. The young shark is born alive and this being time for its birth explains so many sharks close to shore.

The natives say "Now sharks have their calves." You see lazily moving along, close to the bottom, a triangle-shaped creature as big as the top of a dining room table. It ia a sting ray and near by you see his relation, the eagle ray, called by natives "whip ray." It has a tail six or eight feet long, like a black snake whip, and you are assured that the end of that tail carries a weapon that can inflict great injury. These enormous rays, that sometimes weigh a ton, live on shell fish, cracking the shell of clams and oysters with their powerful jaws. They and the sharks swim side by side, like friendly pirates bent on destruction, ignoring each other, (Copyright, Miss Huffman Tells Mun-cie Jury of Incidents When Car Was Parked at Lonely Spot Conway Threatened Her, She Says. MUNCIE, March 29.

OT Miss Helen Huffman, 18-ycar-old Sunday school teacher, today repeated in a crowded court room her story of alleged amorous advances made by the Rev. G. Lemuel Conway, suspended pastor of the Madison Street M. E. Church.

The Rev. Mr. Conway, under a year's suspension following his conviction by a church jury on the charge of imprudent ministerial conduct, is now on trial for assault and battery with intent to commit criminal assault on the young woman. Miss Huffman testified that after inviting her to ride downtown with him, the minister instead took her in his automobile to a lonely spot near a brook where, she said, the attempted attack occurred. Violence Threat Charged.

Miss Huffman testified that her resistance brought a threat of violence. 'How would you like to find yourself with your head in the mud of that creek and your shoes floating down the Miss Huffman said she was asked. The young woman said the minister also threatened to pull her hair. Arizona Judge Balks Strategy Used by Mooney Defense. PHOENIX, March 29.

(-T) Counsel for Winnie Ruth Judd, condemned "trunk" slayer, failed today in their attempt to obtain for her another trial on an unusual murder charge. Her attorneys adopted the strategy of the defense in the Tom Mooney case in California without success. Superior Judge Howard C. Speak-man declined to act on a motion that Mrs. Judd be tried on a charge of murdering Hedvig Samuelson, one of her two women victims, and ordered the dismissal of the information in this case.

Holds New Trial Waste of Time. Judge Speakman held that whatever action the Arizona board of pardons and paroles may take on her plea for clemency, it would be a waste of time to try her on the second murder charge. Mrs. Judd is under sentence to be hanged April 14 on conviction of murdering Agnes Anne Lcroi. She sought trial on the Samuelson charge because, she said, she desired to tell her story of self-defense in open court before a jury.

In the trial for the Leroi killing insanity was the defense and she did not testify. Judge Speakman discussed the fact that the pardon board now has under advisement Mrs. Judd's application for commutation of her death sentence to life imprisonment, and said "this court does not propose to take any action that will interfere with whatever action that board may take, because this court has the greatest confidence in the sound discretion of that board." Money vs. Human Life. "We can not, of course, consider money in connection with a human life," Judge Speakman said in opposing the public expenditure involved in another trial, "but if the board of pardons and paroles declines to commute her sentence, then the date of execution is set and it would be a waste of time to try her in this case.

"If the board does see fit to commute her sentence to life imprisonment, again it would be a waste of time to try her in this case." BURNED BODY FOUND IN CAR Remains of Reported Suicide Discovered in Auto Pyre Near Schroeder Crime Scene. Charred beyond recognition the body of a man thought to be Denver R. Hayes, 21 years old, Alton avenue, and who was believed to have committed suicide, was found in a fire-swept automobile in a lonely woods near Clermont last night, Marital difficulties and ill health were believed to have prompted Hayes to end his life. Hayes lived with an aunt, Mrs. John C.

Farley, coming here from Columbus, Ga. He left the house at 7 o'clock last night, in an automobile belonging to Mrs. Farley after threatening to commit suicide. Dr. W.

E. ArlmcUle, coroner, and Dr. E. R. Wilson, deputy coroner, who performed an autopsy at the City hospital morgue early this morning, said Hayes's death was not caused from burns or from inhaling flames.

An analysis will be mado of the contents of the stomach to determine whether he died of poisoning. No wounds were found on the body. Married Second Time. Hayes had married a second time. His second wife was Alfreta Boone, whom he married in Indianapolis last Doeombor.

Mrs. Farley said she received a telephone call from a man in a I grocery store who said he had heard Hayes threaten suicide Inst, night. She hunted him unsuccessfully, she said, and she was convinced Ihe body in the car was that of her nephew. Near Schroeder Tragedy Scene. The flaming automobile was discovered in forty-acre woods on the Pat Ryan farm just off of what ia known as the.

Girl's School road between Tenth and Wall streets. The woods is not far from the place where the burning automobile of Harold Herbert Schroeder which contained a charred torso of a man was found in May, 19H0. The Schroeder case attracted widespread attention and the body never was identified. Schroeder was convicted of manslaughter and is serving a two-to-fourteen-year sentence in the Indiana state prison at Michigan City. The automobile was traced to Mrs.

Farley through the license plates, which had been issued to Virgil Woodard, IfilS Alton avenue. It. was learned that. Woodard sold the automobile to Mrs. Farley and the plates had not been changed.

Ashes Taken by Coroner. In addition to the seared license plates, all that, remained to identify the body was a belt buckle bearing an illegible initial. Ashes in the car and those that had fallen through to the ground when the bottom of the automobile had burned away were gathered up carefully by Dr. Ar-huckle and were to he sifted for any other articles of identification the man might have had on his person. The place where the car was found is more than a half mile away from the nearest house.

The flames first, were noticed shortly after 7 o'clock by persons in the neighborhood who notified the sheriff's office and were informed that there was no one who could be sent to investigate. About, an hour later several persons in the neighborhood decided to investigate and found the body in the car. They called the sheriff's office CONTINUED ON PAG TWO.

Even though the skip election law postponing municipal elections in Indiana until next year is believed to he valid, leaders of the major political parties were preparing last, night to "play safe" and file slates of candidates for city nominations before April 2. This precaution is to be taken so that the regular organizations will have candidates in the field should the skip election Jaw be held invalid by the Marion county Circuit court during the next, thirty days. A test case is pending in that court.

A court decision after May 2 would obviate the necessity of filing declaration of primary candidacy with Henry O. Goett, city clerk.

After the date for the primary has passed and it is found necessary to nominate a ticket, the selections are made by the city committee. This was done four years ago 'when the city manager law was declared unconstitutional after the date for the primary.

OF FARM PRODUCE PUSHED ELECTION HUNT INCREASES Applicants, Some 250,000 of Them, Don't Want Tree-Planting Work, Either. BY EVERETT C. WATKINS. Indianapolis Star Itureml, 1 7 National I'rcss liiiildinii. WASHINGTON, March Roosevelt hopes to provide jobs for 250,000 men to work in national forests food, shelter, medical care and $1 a day for spending money.

Now it just so happens there are about two hundred and fifty thousand "worthy" Democrats looking to the new administration for jobs. But these boys from the political trenches don't, want to plant trees or cut down trees. They want to be ambassadors, assistants to Cabinet members, United States marshals and other things important. They profess to be experts in everything except, "treeology." They don't just want to work for the government; they want to help run the government. 4,000 Apply to VanNuys.

From Indiana alone 4,000 worthy Democrats have applied to Senator Frederick VanNuys for jobs important appointments. They are so numerous that VanNuys can't even remember who has applied. At the most, he will have opportunity to recommend Democrats for not more than sixty jobs. Among job hunters all roads lead to "Jim" Farley's office. The postmaster general, it so happens, is something more than a Cabinet member.

He also is Democratic chairman and recognized as the administration job dispenser. Swarm About Jim Farley. Members of Congness are tugging at Jim Farley's coat tails every time they get a chance. They besiege him night and day. They seek to cultivate his acquaintance.

They invite him out to so many dinners and luncheons that his own board bill has been reduced to nothing. He is anything but a forgotten man. In fact so many memhers of Congress jam Postmaster General Farley's office each day that at almost any hour it. would be possible to count a quorum present. But no jobs result; the administration has been too busy with other pressing matters to take time off to root out Republican appointees.

VanNuys Keeps Clear. House members, rather than senators, have their particular problems with hordes of candidates for post-masterships. No matter how small the town, there are from a dozen to fifty candidates to peddle the hometown mail. Senator VanNuys will have nothing to do with recommendations for a single postmaster in Indiana; he has passed this chore to Indiana House members, all being Democrats. Present postmasters will be displaced with Democrats only as their commissions expire.

Some of the candidates don't appear to understand that. Representative James I. Farley, Fourth Indian "-'riot, has CONTINUED ON PA JlKEE. Griswold Calls Roosevelt's $l-a-Day Forestry Plan "Chain Gang Charity' Measure Will Create Slavery Instead of Voluntary Work, Hoosier Representative Charges. Indianapolis Star Bureau, 13117 National I'ress Building.

WASHINGTON, March 29. Representative Glenn Griswold, Democrat of the Fifth Indiana district, in a sensational speech delivered In the House this afternoon, characterized as "chain gang charity" the plan of President Roosevelt to provide jobs for 250,000 men in national forests at $1 a day. Keeping the New Laws in Mind. This is the tenih of a series of daily articles in The Star on the new laws passed by the 1933 session of the state Legislature. Preprohjbition breweries, in their fierce competition, owned saloons In order to guarantee output for their products.

This custom of the brewery controlling the retail trade was said to be the root of many evils in the days before aridness. The new Indiana liquor control act strikes at this evil. It provides that no manufacturer of alcoholic beverages "shall supply, furnish, give or pay for any furniture, fixtures, furnishings or equipment used in or about any place which shall require a license" for the sale of these beverages. The manufacturer also Is prohibited from advancing money to pay for liquor licenses "or to be interested in the conduct or operation of the business of any person, corporation or concern engaged in the sale at retail of any beverages covered by this act." This was the second time the Indiana Democrat has broken with the new administration, not yet a month old. Ho previously voted against the Roosevelt economy bill.

Griswold is a member of tho House committee on labor. He joined with Chairman Connery, Democrat, in opposing the Roosevelt bill in committee and continued the fight in the House. Ho supported the Connery amendment, defeated by a vote of 290 to 90, to pay married men in the forest camps $80 a month Instead $1 a day, and $T0 a month.
