HOPE STAR, HOPE. ARKANSAS ^ Grand Juries Hit _^ .Cimlit Judge Favors More Efficient System in Ft. Smith Speech FORT SMITH, A.rk.—(/PV-Describ- ing the system as antiquated, Circuit Judge- J. Sam Wood Wednesday advo- catcd changes in Arkansas's criminal cciwt procedure. Speaking at a luncheon meeting of i\\& Rotary club, Judge Wood, white not favoring abolition of the grand jury system, expressed himself in favcr of many changes in its procedure. Reduction in the number of challenges afforded defendants in criminal cases was cited as one method by which court costs might be decreased. "Certainly the day has passed when a defendant must challenge as many as 20 Jurors in an ordinary criminal trial." lie declared. However, he added that there possibly is justification for that number of challenges in capital crimes to safeguard rights of the defendant. He estimated that cost of operating WAKE UP YOUR LIVER BILE- WITHOUT CALOMEL And You'll Jump Out of Bed in the Morning Rarin' to Go tf yon fed sour and gunk arv' the world looks punk* don't shallow a lot u. 3&lta. miner*! water, oil, laia'jvc candy or chewing rum arid expect them to make you suddenly sweet »nd buoyant and full of nnshine.

"The proposal to abolish the grand jury procedure is closely linked with j the question of personal liberty," he j said. "Nevertheless, the needs for al-, terations'arc evident, if taxpayers are to be given any relief from tjie present high cost of court operation." Pointing to the system successfully -pcratcd in Oklahoma, Judge Wood •aid personal liberties of citizens would be amply protected if irrand juries were convened only on petition of citizens and eliminated from regular court procedure. Constitutional amendment would be required to change the court pro- jedure and Judge Wood urged that iction be taken by the next legislature. Alley OOP Giant Treasury Silent Will Fix Him: on New Financing British Freighter Sinks; 26 Are Lost Millpool Goes Down in Mid-Atlantic—Searchers Finally Give Up NEW YORK—the .British freighter Millpool. bound from Danzi? to Montreal with a crew of 26 and a cargo of grain. apparently has foundered with ill! hands in mid-Atlantic. Two steamships which answered her SOS proceeded on their routes Wednesday pfter vainly searching the stormy seas for some trace of her. The Millpool appealed for help Tuesday reporting that the storm had beaten in her hatch and carried away her main topmast. She gave her no- sition as about 700 miles off the coast cf Labrador.; Her master Capt. Arthur Newton, wirelessed that three of his crew had been injured, and that his craft was drifting helplessly in the gale. The White Star liner Alaunia and the'Canadian Pacific freighter Beaver Hill hurried to her aid, arriving at her approximate position Wednesday morning. Aided by the steamship Beavcrford, which also came up, they criss-crossed the position given in the Millpool's last faint radio signals. Won't Confirm Rumor Billion Will Be Asked for Winter Relief WASHINGTON — (/TV- The government's financial program, with the first quarter of the fiscal year left well behind, Wednesday was more closely shrouded nnd hence the subject o finoro conflicting speculation than at nny time in months. Reports that an additional $1,000,000,000 or more would be sought for relief this whiter met the same silence in Treasury circles as the question of hem the money would be raised to meet heavy emergency expenditures already definitely scheduled between now and July 1. Treasury officials said any light on either the budget or the tnx plans to be presented to congress probably would have to await the president's message in January. One thing is certain. Whether or not relief expenditures increase above those now projected, heavy borrowing of new money must be undertaken somo time after the first of the year. The government must meet 56,000,000,000 of maturing obligations, largely six-months bills and other short-term paper, before July 1. i to lion*, that sho receives no saUry ** hrnd of the temple, htw no personal bank account, and dors not h;\rt.'l<- funds f>f thfr gospel association contrail Ahgelus Tcmt'Klp.

Hill McAlister.. ' Shortly after his testimony the case was concluded and tho first argument made by R. M. Atkinson, former attorney general of Davidson county, who is assiting in the prosecution of Reece. The case is expected to reach the jury Thursday. Recce testified he received the money a s"trustec from certain insurance companies" as payment on back taxes' due the state at that time. He said he was to hold the money pending the outcome of litigation to determine whether the insurance companies were liable for the payment. He told tho jury he deposited about $5,600 of the money in the Bank of Mountain City and the remainder in the Hamilton National bank of Johnson City in his name as insurance commissioner, credited to the back tax account. After receiving tho money, he testified he agreed to lend it to a "finance committee managinc; the campaign of Gov. Hill McAHster," and turned it over to the committee in October, 1932. The committc'J, he said, WHS supposed to refund the money to him, but instead "used it for political purposes in tho oampfigii."

' Aimee Admits She Paid OffHusband Evangelist Testifies She Gave Baritone "$2,100 on Divorce LOS .ANGELES, Calif.—(fl j )—Aimcc Semple McPherson Hutton, the evangelist reluctantly admitted from a witness stand Wednesday that she paid David Hutton a ?2.100 settlement when she nnd the baritone singer were divorced. During a judgment debtor's hearing, Mrs. Hutton was asked by a lawyer if she was paying Hutton "certain sums monthly." "After signing that settlement agreement." she replied, "I promised never to disclose ts contents, and I don't think I should tell." Commissioner Kurtz Kauffman ruled she must answer, and she testified "I did pay David 52,100." Asked where she got this money, she said she drew on her life insurance, adding "at that time I had insurance." . $. The hearing was on the matter pf the evangelist's ability to pay a 57 t 118 claim against her for judgmcrit and costs held by assignees of the la,tc JJ. Roy Stewart, film director. Stewart charged in a suit before his death that the evangelist broke a contract to star in a picture called "Clay. .in. the Potter's Hands." .-,'," The blonde evanglist said, as she has said LITTLE ROCK.—Charging the State Board of Election Commissioners openly has ignored wishes of Republican state and county organisations in the selection of some county commissioners, Wallace Townscnd, Republican national contmitlccnian, and Osro Cobb, chairman of the Republican State Committee, issued a statement Wednesday condemning the biennial practice of selection of county commissioners as n "political cancer" which should "be removed." The state board managed to complete the selection of the county boards despite—or because of—efforts of "delegates" to the unofficial convention of county officials and political wiseacres which was in session at the capitol Tuesday and Wednesday. Governor Futrcll. Secretary of Stale Ed K. McDun.'Ud and Attorney General Hal L. Norwood, members of the state board, attempted to grant hearings to the "delegates" mid to consider written recommendations. It was reported that most of the various county office-holders submitted their own suggestions for "Republican" iv.eivbcrs of the boards. T8ho two Republican officials charged thnt such recommendations wore adopted. . Many sheriffs were present at the "convention" and it was reported by a source close to the sheriffs that on the whole, they wore well pleased with the selections of tho county hoards. Most other county officials were pleased also, it was said. The sheriffs are vitally concerned in the proposed amendment that would extend terms ot office to four years.
