PAGE SIX Insull Co. 'Forgot' toShowWriteoff Squeezed Out Watered Stock, But Didn't Tell Investors CHICAGO—(#•)—The story of efforts to omit a $34,954.153 write-off •from the statements of Corporation Securities Compnny of Chicago was vnfoldcd Wednesday in the mail fraud trial of Samuel Insull and 16 co-defendants. ;A letter inquiring into the legs I justification for the omission was added to the head of prosqcution evidence while Van Lamont, former comptroller of Halsey.'Stuart & Co. Cccupied the witness stand. Lamont also related that stock purchased by the concern Insull had foundede immediately prior to thr financial debacle of 1929 at a cist ol $31500,000 was written up on the books at a value of $15.000.420. and that stock bought at 513.000.000 wa^ written Up to a value of 530,000,000. Lament readily answered inquiries into the huge and complicated financial transactions, while Insull and his coc'efendants sat in intent silence. His disclosures made him the star witnes' to date in the proceedings. The heavy write-off was made on the company's inventory pieliminatv to Ihe filing of its statement with the 'Chiiato Stock Exchange in the fail. of 1923. Lamont brought out the corporation's desire to avoid embarrassing, reftrence to it in identifyhvg a letter written by Clarence T. Mac Jfctt'e, a defendant and secretary of Kalsey. Stuart & Co.. to W. J. Parkor of the law firm of Schuyler, Wriu- iield and Hennessy in January ef 1930. In; the letter Mac Nellie reminded Parker that the latter had advised that in all statements of the Corporation Securities Company ; the write- off should be mentioned. "This procedure," the letter said, "while undoubtedly being proper from a legal standpoint, means continually gringing up a sore spot." KITCHEN Sandwiching In a Good Time. BY MARY E. DAGtIE NBA Service Staff Writer Tho gang's nil together again after the summer separation. Those to-the- death bridge tournaments, interrupted by vacations and the distractions of outdoor life, are going full-tilt and almost every night a few couples drop in to sit until bedtime.

If you're the hospitable sort who likes to serve refreshments, keep your shelves Well-stocked with lots of the right kind of canned things and don't try to be elaborate in your sandwich-making. I have found that certain hot and quite simple sandwiches go well with coffee whc nthe evenings arc chilly, though my shrimp-and egg rolls are the crown of the evening to most of my guasts. For enough rolls : to serve eight once around, you must have: One cup cooked shrimp. 3 hard cooked eggs, 2-3 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon prepared mustard, 2 teaspoons lemon juice. >i teaspoon salt. Clean shrimp and cut fine. Add eggs, chopped fine, and remainder of ingredients. Mix well and spread between finger rolls that have been split and buttered. Hot Baked Bean Sandwich Two cups plain baked beans, 3 tablespoons chopped onion, 1 green pepper chopped. 2 tablespoons butter, 3 cups canned tomatoes, '/i teaspoon salt, 10 slices toasted bread. Cook chopped onion and green pepper in butter until soft but not brown. Add tomatoes which have been rubbed through a strainer to remove seeds, then salt, and simmer until thick, about one-half hour. Serve hot baked beans between two slices of toast with tomato sauce poured over. These sandwiches arc good made with toasted rye bread. You might have several kinds of bread at hand and let each guest choose and toast his own. Smothered Ham Sandwiches Five slices bread, 5 slices cooked ham. 1 egg white, 14 cup mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon prepared mustard. HOJPB a'l'AH.

FALL CLOTHES for MEN WASHINGTON. — (/!') —The Form Administration will take steps designed to assure the tenant farmer cquit- nhle treatment under next year's cotton adjustment program. It wa&.iearncd Wednesday that the adminsitratiofi shortly will call to the attention <jf landowners provisions in thei radjustment contracts specifically protecting tenants. These include pledges to maintain as far as possible the normal number of tenants and other employes, to permit all tenants to occupy their quarters, rent free, during the next season, and to make pro rate among tenants whatever acreage reduction is determined upon, to avoid throwing any out of employment. It was said authoritatively that the motive for this step was twofold First, to bring the provisions clearly into notice at about the time farmer owners and share croppers arc beginning their annual negotiations toward arrangements for next season, and second to make clear that the administration is goinf to insist upon complete fulfillment of those contract provisions. AAA officials have taken the position that no serious labor dislocation has been occasioned by cotton acreage reduction and their notice to landlords will carry no accusation that the latter have not been observing contract regulations. The decision to issue the notice was described in one source us merely precautionary. NRA Attacked at Labor Convention Speakers Declare It Organizes Management, But Not Labor SAN FRANCISCO-(/P)-An attack on the NRA as it applies to workers was launched before the American Federation of Labor convention here Wednesday. Robert J. Watt, a Massachusetts delegate, charged the collective bargaining clause of the recovery act had been ''used a.gainst the workers themselves," He asserted employers, including Henry Ford, had been permitted to interpret the act as they pleased. Matthew Woll of New York, a fed- eration vice president, said the recovery net virtunlly required employers to organize among themselves but sniil there was no comparable requirement that labor join in a majority movement for its own benefit. Labor, said Woll, must obtain the same right to organize as capital," or labor will be enslaved under the NHA instead of made free." Decisions of the National Labor Relations Board were critid/cd by Charles P. Howard, president of the International Typographical Union. "If we are to have a vital application of (lie NRA to the right of organized labor unions to bargain with employers," said Howard, "the federation will have to get a proper interpretation cf the recovery act." After hearing the criticisms, the convention adopted its Executive Council's report on unemployment, which placed the total number of unemployed at about 10,000,000. As a Matter of Fncl, No. Rodney (after being to Sunday school)—"Say, dad, our lesson told about the evil spirits entering the swine." Father—"Yes, my son. What do you wish to know?"
