PAGE SIX STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tennessee Official Cleared of Fraud But Reece Stands Convicted in Trial for Other Tax Charges MOUNTAIN CITY, Tenn — </P) — Joreph I. Reecc, head of the Insurance and Banking Department cf Tennessee during the latter part of the preceding state administration, was acquitted by a jury of Johnson ceunty farmers Thursday of charges cf embezzlement i and fraudulent brench of trust. ' The charges related to his handling of- approximately $22.000 of funds in the department's unadjusted back tax account—money paid by insurance ccmpanies under protest and the subject cf.- litigation. Reece said he turned the money over in the fall of 1932 to a "Finance Committee" for Gov. Hill McAlister's election campaign, under promise of repayment later. Reecc was tried in the county where he was born 51 years ago. When the acquittal verdict was returned shortly after neon, he smiled, shook hands with the jurors and left for his home in Johnson City. Charges similar to those on which ho was freed here nrc pending against him nt Nashville, where the grand jury last February returned five presentments accusing Recce of larceny, embezzlement by public officer and fraudulent breach of trust in connection with the back tax account. Irregularities totaling $16,364.47 are alleged in those presentments. A few days after the charges were preferred by the grand jury in Nash- vtfle, he went en trial there on a previous indictment charging that he .tole 5100,000 of bonds held in escrow by the Insurance Department. He was convicted of grand larceny and his punishment fixed at from three to 10 years. An appeal to the state su- premo court is pending.

Mr. Cox. president of tho Arkansas Phtvrmccutical association, was 3ne of six delegates from this state to the New Orleans convention, which represented the commercial side ofj the drug business. Two thousand druggists attended from all over the United States. It was their 36th annual meeting. While Kidnap Hunt Was On THE WISE O1D OWl tsso AFUELLIK€THIS [THE GIRLS DECLARE U IS THE ANSWER TO \AMAIDENS PRAYED u&uuvte&t SMOOTHER PERFORMANCE Meat Scarcity in Spring Forecast Dairy Products and Poultry to Be Dearer Following Drouth WASHINGTON r (/P)—A shift in the customary national diet during the late winter and next spring, because r.C the drouth, was predicted Thursday from within the AAA. The Bureau of Agricultural Economics, in a lengthy servey of crops and livestock destruction, concluded also that prices would rise but that, with an adjustment between surplus and deficit area, there would be no dangerous food shortage. "The full effect of the drouth on retail food prices will not be felt until next spring, when supplies of meats, dairy products, and poultry products will be reduced," the bureau said. Drouth and high temperatures during the summer were ^ reported to have so reduced production in Central and Rocky Mountain states that, despite ''bountiful production" in Eastern and Far Western states, "consumers will have to make certain shifts in their usual diet because of ;hc scarcity of some foods and the abundance of others." The bureau said a higher level of food prices "in general" may be expected in addition to the 7.1 per cent general increase during the past Lhrao months, but at a slower rate. Price increases listed for the thrce- month period were: Meats, 13.6 per cent; dairy products, 4.3 per cent; cereal products, 3.5, and canned fruits and vegetables, 1.5 Part of these increases, the bureau said, can be attributed to normal seasonal trends, The Australian brush turkey covers up its eggs in decaying leaves and leaves them to hatch alone. The young are fully feathered when they hatch and make their own way in the world as soon as they emerge from the shell. ESSO SERVICE STATION Third and L. & A.

Skinner of El Dorado, Ark., fiance of "Schoolboy" Howe, is a movie fan-George Raft of Hollywood, a movie actor, is a baseball fan. Raft was pointed out to Miss Skinner during Thursday s game at Navin Field and she remarked: "Well, so that's him"—Miss Skinner; was pointed out to Mr. Raft and; he said: "Well, well." Dizzy Dean stood behind Rpwe while he was warming up, giving him advice how to pitch to the Cardinals. When Manager Cochrane protested, Dean strode to the Tigers' dougout, picked up one of their bats and walked, away with it. "You fellows don't know what bats are for, anyway," Dizzy remarked. Rowe went to bed at 8 Wednesday night and did not arise until 8 Thursday morning in preparation for the biggest clay of his career. "How did you like Dizzy Dean's broadcast?" he was asked. "Didn't hear it," was.the Schoolboy's reply. "I don't care anything about what he says. All I want is a chance to pitch against him." The Tigers were not entitled to the run they scored in the fourth. Fox's double, which brought home ItoBell, sailed over third base and landed foul by six inches. Those in the press box, with perhaps the best opportunity of any one in the park to sec exactly where the ball struck, agreed it was foul. Babe Ruth made good on u bet he made with Goose Goslin, hero of the Tigi.T victory, last spring. The Babe wagered $100 that he would outhit the Goose in the American League season. He gave Co.slin a check for that amrunl. The moment word reached the downtown section that the Tigers had won the streets became ankle deep in ticker tape tossed from office and hotel buildings. Bob Conncry, owner of the St. Paul American Association club, says I you can have your pick of world series heroes ;IK long us you leave him Frank Friseh. "He has more class than any man on the field," Connery .said after Thursday's game. Joe Medv/iek was so exhausted after i walloping the- Tigers' opening game j pitchers that he retired at 6 p. in. j Donic Bush, manager of the cham- | pionship Minneapolis Club, and Tris : Speaker had a violent argument j Thursday morning as to their ages. Each insisted he was younger than the other. Bush won out by six months. Bush was born on October 8, , 1888, and Speaker on April 4, 1888. Veterans Refuse to Enter Politics V. F. W. Votes Down Plan to Resort to Political Pressure LOUISVILLE, Ky.~(/P)-Condemn- ng any national sales tax plan and refusing to go into politics, the Veterans of Foreign Wars declared their views on public matters in a stormy convention here Thursday, They dc- ncunccd Communism and demanded wider distribution of wealth, fcdcral- ization of munition factories and payment of war debts. A proposal that V. F. W. posts as organizations bo allowed to support or oppose candidates for federal office, on the basis of ther record on veterans' legislaton, was defeated after a bitter floor fight. National Commander James E. Van Zandt, of Al- oona, Pa,, left the chair to shout: "Lust year we had a caucus of 135 -r 140 members of the house. We aid before them the mandate of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Bill Con- ncry (Representative Conncry of Massachusetts) told me, 'You have put us on the spot. Now arc you goin gto back us up?' "I told him we would. Those men svcnt to bat for us. We passed our low. We overrode a veto of the president. Now those men have been stripped of their pattonage. Ase you going to double-cross those men who sopportcd yoo?" Other speakers warned that "politics is a dirty bosincss" and that "this would mean the end of the V. F. W." After an hour's hot debate the proposal was lost by a narrow margin on a voice vote. Austria is building nn automobile highway across the iGrofselockner range, where It will rise to an clcva- ton of 8200 feet and will connect the provinces of Carinthia and Salzburg. Music was devised by (lie gods to lure the sun-goddess from n cave where she had retired, according to Japanese legend. Oboe players must hnve frequent pauses in the music for exhaling purposes, not inhaling. The hind portion will develop a new head and the' tore part n new tail, if an earthworm is cut in two.

Paul Dean said Thursday morning j that Dizzy had lost 20 pounds dining ' September. "He didn't have a thing out there in the opening game," he explained. "His curve ball was as i straight as the foul lines," said Paul. | Jirnrny Dykes, manager of the White Sox, said he felt right at home watching the Tigers in the openin» same. "Mhought I was looking at the Sox" he stated. A boxing ring was roped off along the third base line before Thursday's Kuine for a nfotch between Joe E- Brown and Al i'tlmcht. Barney Rons served as Brown's second and George Raft was referee. Brown wou the second round by a knockout. It took a bucket of cold water to revive the Senators' comedian.
