Charges R.F.C, Is Threatening Press R.F.C. Asserted to Hold Balance of Power in Tennessee Newspaper WASHINGTON.- (/P) -James Wam- mond, Memphis newspaper publisher, stud Wednesday thnl snle by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation of $250,000 of bonds of the Tennessee Publishing company to the American Nationnl bank at Nashville constituted n "threat of Fascism in the control of the American press." Hnmrnond, now in Arkansas, authorized Issuance of a statement bore by representatives of the; Memphis Commercial Appeal, of which he is publisher, in which he said "it is plain that an agency of government has violated our national guarantee of a free press, and the revelation is shocking." Chairman Jesse H. Jones of the Reconstruction Corporation announced Tutfday that thu bonds, held as collateral on a loan to the defunct Canal Hank and Trust Co. of New Orleans. s ^ud been sold to Paul Davis, president 2! the Ameri«an National bank. Hamihond contended the- RFC had bought the bonds on September 20 but "pertinently denied it until October 8." He said purchase of the bonds in the Nashville Tcnnesscan and (ho Evening Tennessecan, operated by the Tennessee Publishing Company in receivership, hod given the RFC the "balance of power" in the papers. An RFC official said today the sole interest of the corporation was to get back the money lent on the bonds. The purchase price of the bonds of ?200,000, the RFC said, had been fixed in court as the full value to be paid by Davis. The RFC said that several offers, including one by Hammond, had been submitted but that of Davis had been considered the best. Davis is a brother of Norman H. Davis, American "ambassador at large." "Mr. Jones, himself, is on record as having snid that the RFC would under no circumstances invest in newspaper properties," Hammond's statement said. "At that time, and with commendable judgment, Mr. Jones said that to do so would be to arouse the suspicion that the povernment was attempting to control Ihe nation's press. Mr. Jones, being a newspaper publisher himself, should know what government control of the press would mean." I must express surprise that so great n man and so wise :i ruler as Mussolini should be willing, even caper, to .put his gallant nation into such an uncomfortable military and financial position.—Winston Churchill, British statesman. 'Out Our Way' Cartoonist Bags First Lion But He'd Rather Draw Than Be a Huntsman Jim Williams Gets a Thrill Out of Chase to Avenge His Calves For All Kinds of INSURANCE Sec Roy Anderson nnd Company By JAMES E. KINTNKK NKA Service Speclftl Correspondent PRESCOTT, Ari7..—Cartoonist Jim Williams bus shot his first mountain lion — n seven-footer. And thrill though it was, ho stonily declares that he'd rather draw "Out Our Way." Ho enjoys the chase, but not the kill. Out in western Arizona, Williams divides his; time between his cattle ranch and his studio, where he draws the cartoons that alternately touch thn heartstrings of his thousands of funs and drive them into gales of mirth. Mountains frown down on the range where Williamc' cattle graze and from their lairs on the wooded slopes lions r.rcwl to feast en the rancher's calves. They average a kill every four days. Just one of (he vicissitudes /if the cattle business, it was in the cartoonist-rancher's philosophy, until Gilet; Goswiek, lion hunter for the U. S. Biological Survey, drove up the lane t i the rnnchhouse one evening as the rain pelted clown. Jim nntl two of his cnwb-iys snl on the* porch, where the- riders had just arrived to report another calf the prey of marauding cats. Right Dtwn His Alley "That fits right in with my crnind overe here. Jim," grinned the hunter when he heard of Ihe raid ''Maybe this'll stir you up for a little revcni'i' and got you away from that drawing board. "Just before dark, my dogs jumped a lion into a limestone sinkhole up on the point of Juniper mountain. It was too dark to get in there and poke A long, lean, tun menace, the mountain lion poised for her spring; from a towering oak, at the left. A moment later, she described an arc through the air, flashed through the brush, and look refuge in the lofty yellow pint- iree nl the right, below which Cartoonist Jim Williams is shown just before he turned his 30-30 on the quarry to ling his first big cal.

It's only an hour'.s ride from here, so liow'd you like to got up there early and have a little fun with the kitty'.'" Jim did like it. So at dawn, with Goswiek and three cowboys, lie was climbing his horse through brush and rock slides on the south .«ide of Juniper mountain, a small pack of hounds trailing along. Suddenly, baying loudly, the dogs dashed up the mountain on u now course, and Goswiek spurred his mount through the brush to bead them cff. Returning with them a few minutes Inter, he announced that they had discovered the fresh tracks of another lion. Kerch Lion's Heaven It was nearly sunrise when the riders topped the peak and a few minutes later rode into an auk thicket to the sinkhole where the first cut bad taken refuge. When the rocks and timber were removed, n light flat-heel into the cave .showed it apparently empty.

No sound came from the hunter for | a while. Then the flashlight beam I appeared and Giles stuck his head out of the hole. "Quite a place in there. Our cat's under a rock on the west side. She grtwlcd when I went in. Come on clown, J. R., if you want to boar her." Listen to Her Purr Buck into the hole went the pair and then the other three followed, on Gik'.'' invitation, "Come on, fellows, and hear her purr." One youngster, bolder than the rest, (rawled into the narrow hole whore the cat lay, then came out precipitously at a spit and a snarl. Finally it was agreed to smoke out the quarry. Pine cones and needles wore dropped into the chamber and lighted. Smoke came oo?.ing out of the cracky in the rocks an clthe cave entrance. Then there were low growls, the sound of scratching, and again silence. Giles slowly pointed to the cave, picked up a small rock, and hurled it into the hole. Out shot a long, tan body between Giles and Williams. In one grand Jeap the cat bad soared from the bottom of the cave, well out inlci tbo open, just missing Susie, one of the bawling hounds. Susie went 'Trawling, rolled over, and came up running, the other clogs after her. Trci'd In Ihe Canyon The race was on. Through the loosely grouped horses wont the cat, hounds hot on her trail. The horses scattered, but stopped, trembling, a short distance away. The hunters stood listening. Finally Giles spoke. "They've got her lieed. Now we'll go down and jump her out and have some real fun." Down int:i the canyon they rode. In an oak, with the dogs ringed around at the botlcin, the lion crouched, 20 feet up. "Watch her come out of there when I throw tins stick," advised Giles. "It'll ho cj'iod training for these young hounds." • But she may get away," objected Williams. "Not a chance," replied Giles. "Tb-isc dops'll meet her when she hits the ground. I only hope she doesn't cut out of them to pieces when t-he lands." Ho hurled the stick. It struck the limb just above the lion's head. With n scraping sound of unsheathed claws on the oak bark, the lion leaped, describing a perfect arc. Landing perfectly, she darted down the canyon, do'4s lmt in pursuit, in full tongue. Down Comes the Cat Up another tree, a big yellow pine, went the fugitive. Down below waited the yelping hounds and five excited men. The brush was too thick to do any roping, so Giles suggested that they put an end to the quarry and go after the other animal, whose tracks the clogs had found. "Well, we've given her two chances," said Williams. A well-placed shot i'ram his 30-30 and the huge cat pitch- Blevins Mr. and Mrs. Jack Bonds wore business visitors in Hope Monday.
