Barrett from attempting to establish through cross- examlhalton 6f a government witness that the Standard Dredging Company of New York, the concern the government charfea paid Shushan n rebate on New Orleans lake front improvements, Was viUdly interested in the outcome of the gubernatorial election In Louisiana in 1932. The government objected to an effort by defense lawyer Hugh M. Wilkinson to introduce two telegrams purporting to show the company's interest in the election. ''! believe there exist," sakl Wilkinson in answer to the objection, "iind will endeavor to produce from the files of this company numerous communications of this kind. I will show that the $10,000 this witness testified SEEDS TULIPS, NARCISUS HYAClNTiriS and WINTER LAWN SEERS.

"I'll show that the company and Mr. Shushan both knew Ihnt this rebate was not Shushnn's money but wns political contribution. Documents of this kind. I have reason to believe, not only existed in this election but in every election in Louisiana during tho period covered In the indictment. Col. Amos W. W. Woodcock, chief government attorney, asked Wilkinson if he desired to admit that Shushan received the sums of money charged in the indictment "I am not called upon to disclose my plans for the defense," Wilkinson snapped, "and I prefer not to hare my ruder of proof." Judge Biirrclt ruled thnt tho loln- grams wore not admissible, bus-ing his decision on the ground thut the defense was attempting to' cross-examine the witness on a sxibjecl not touched on in direct examination. The government contended thnt •Ehuthan, president of the Orleans Levee Board under the rule of Long, failed to pay more than $53,000 in income tux charged up to him nnd thnt ho reaped about S129.000 in "rebate" from the Standard Dredging Company utiiltr which he received two cents per ruble yord for dredging at the Shushan airport, named for him.

"Overhead" Takes (Continued from page: one) meeting of the Executive Committee of the State Public Welfare Commission. Gustavo Jones of Newport, chairman of the newly-formed association of County Welfare Board, who has announced his intention of demanding that the state board increase the October allotment to counties from $75,000,000 to $100,000, with 20 per cent to be allowed for local administrative expense, is chairman of the Jackson county board. Mr. Jones said in a statement Thursday that the state assocation is preparing to file suit to restrain the state comptroller and treasurer from transferring funds from the welfare fund to the charities fund to supplement the maintenance fund of the> State Hospital and Tuberculosis Sanatorium. The comptroller issued a certificate of necessity Monday, directing the treasurer to transfer $50,000 from the welfare fund to the charities fund in accordance with a provision of Act 321 of 1935, which authorizes transfer of $300,000 during the present fiscal year. Governor Futrell made the comptroller's letter public a few hours after the governor hud said at his office that he believed the State Welfare Commission, or its executive committee, should reduce the personnel of the State Welfare Department. The governor conferred with Henry Armstrong of Fort Smith, chairman of the executive committee; James L. Bland of Walnut Ridge andi Claude Mann of Malvern Thursday night con- properly across their path with the green light. No one can understand the value gained by squeezing past a light measured against the possibilities of death, injury, and destruction which every such act of I chehtlnc invites. Nor can one find any]more reason, even Hellish, for! to observe the' 'warnings rby "Curve," "Stop," "School i Zone," "Intersection," and similar ! Bi$ns. Traffic lights nnd other signals are cooperative rules. They are established so that the greatest number of motorists may proceed with the best possible speed. Observance of them is a mutual necessity. No driver has the right to race a . llghjt or ignore a signal. No matter ' how careless he may choose to be of his own self, he still cannot divest himself of his obligation to his felloe human beings on the road.
