PRICE YUGO-SLAV KING AND FRENCH CABINET MEMBER ARE SLAIN Here and There —^.Editorial By ALEX. II. WASHDUUN- T HE assassination in France today of the Yugo-Slav kiiij? by one of his own subjects is a ter.se reply to foolish citizens of whatever land who think radical action is a cure for governmental ills. _ > Yufio-Slavia, a consolidation of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, has been n hotbed of trouble ever since its founding in 1921. King Alexander, a strong and resourceful ruler, handled his nation's domestic affairs but leaned on the French for protection abroad. He was in France in the interests of his native land when fellow Yugoslavs killed him. The same assassins shot down Louis Barthou, Foreign Minister of France (corresponding to our Secretary of State Cordell Hull)—and that won't help the Yugo-Slav cause in the minds of the French peasants. Thus do the friends of violent action kill the country they profess to Will Green Case Approaches Jury in Circuit Court Testimony Is Taken Monday Afternoon, Tuesday Morning R.

Parks congressional election contest, poll books, tally .sheets and ballots were found missing from nearly all tho boxes. Walker said Judge Henry told a committee of nearly 50 eitipens who called on him at Monliccllo Monday that he would charge the Ashley county grand jury which convenes : here iiext week to conduct a diligent investigation into the disappearance of the ballots.

We put our trust neither in men nor in parties, but in broad principles of democratic government which we call the Constitution. And if at times our country seems to have more than its .•-hare of troubles ,\ve need only to look abroad to see Hint patience nnd not violent action is the final answer to humanity's ills. When our country was founded -Baninmin Vrn.oWin.-Said: "Thurc is. no form of government but whofma'y he a blessing to the people if well administered." Assassins and revolutionaircs are not patriots; they are not courageous; they are not helpful—they are the dumb ones, for they fail to see that whenever a radical action is begun, another is sure to meet it; and ehaos results. That's how America looks on Yugoslavia today. Price-Fixing May Be Up to President Revamping of NRA Discussed by F. D. R. and . Recovery Board WASHINGTON.—(/r>)-The problem of reshaping the NKA was put directly up lo President Roosevelt Monday, in a list of problems, including price and production control, .submitted to him by his Recovery Board.

These issue.'! and others of less importance were canvassed in a M-min- utc White House conference, the first between Mr. House veil and Iho board. A second conference was forecast within a week. Clay Williams, hoard chairman, commented: "The president invited u;; over to spend a little time with him. reporting on what we had done. We told him the first week was devoted entirely to a survey of our problems. The discussion developed a few generalities as lo what broadly was in- eluded in these problems." Williams replied to questions that price and production control were mention but "there was no indication where the .study may lead." Hugh S. Johnson, retiring administrator, remained in his office during the White House meeting. Later, Williams eonfenvd with him. FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: RCg. U. 5. PVT.

The authorities closed the French frontier and foreigners were not allowed to cross the border. Telephonic communications with Madrid wero broken, and the line tp Paris is expected to be cut soon. Skirmishes between strikers and soldiers were frequent all along the coast. Twenty Americans, employes of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Co., were marooned at Basauri, in northwestern Spain. Their factory was closed and food was running short. Later the government premier, Alejandro LOJTOUX, began mopping up the remaining vestiges of rebellion in several provinces while estimates of the dead in the six-day revolt ranged from 500 to 1,000. Attention at Madrid was centered on the reopening of congress, and the presentation of the budget.

A high ranking deputy whose name could not be revealed told the Associated Press "this uncertainty, if it continued, will end in military dictatorship. "The government should take the most drastic steps to end the revolt since otherwise the dictatorship seems inevitable." he said. A military dictatorship, that of Gen. Primo de Rivera, ruled Spain from 1923 to 1939 in conjunction with the monarchy.
