' ' ' ' '*"- < MOPfiS STAJft, MOm 1 -r-x Vital inCampaign assing of Business Opposition Is Real Threat to Roosevelt By BiTUm PRICE Chief Of Bureau, The Associated Prewt, Washington Viewed from any angle, the massing of business oppoltion to President ftoosevelt is a matter of prime interest politically, as well as economically. Politics always Is uncertain, but at least Interesting possibilities can be predicted on the lessons of political history. One le.ison of the past is that it is almost Impossible to elect or reeled a President over a determined and wisely-directed opposition by organized business. Prom that the Democrats may take warning. Another is that the. bringing together of powerful business organizations for political action usually results in extravagnnt campaign spending, and is likely to culminate in a scandal bcnefitting the other side. The Republicans may learn from that. One way or the other, it is not improbable that business opposition to the Roosevelt policies, ,and to Mr. Rocsevclt himself, will be one of the dominating factors in 1038, Sentiment Crystallizing Of course there is nothing new in iilslnoss distrust of Mr. Roosevelt, or U the prospect that many important >\uslne..is leaders will be against him next year. The interesting new thing about it, how.ever, is that recently there has been a drawing-together of this sentiment, and a tendency to express it in organized fashion. Wholesale refusal of the utility companies to register under the new hold- Ing company act coincides with a number of significant developments elsewhere. Returns from a referendum among members" of the Chamber of Commerce of,(ho United States, on whose board are represented all of the great financial interests of the country, show on overwhelming majority against current "legislative trends." The American Bankers association, in annual convention, gives a cold reception to "new deal" speakers. The Liberty league, which manifestly has ample financial backing, extends its attack to include most of the President's major proposals. These organizations all maintain they are not in politics, but their effect on politics is beyond dispute. Cfl.mpnign Funds That the Republicans intend to make a thoroughgoing job of raising campaign funds is evident from the personnel of the new finance committee appointed by Chairman Fletcher. It is headed by lenders who represent concerns accustomed to deal in millions. A year ago, the Republicans were laving great difficulty raiding money, liose who were asked for funds replied in many cases by asking what assurance there was that the party would not go off at a tangent, and permit itself to be dominated by the radical elements, particularly In the west. The general tenor of discussion at the "grass roots" conferences appears to have satisfied many eastern Republicans that the party would at least be more conservative than the Democrats. . The danger of too much emphasis on financial backing is illustrated by the experience of Edward F. Hutton, chairman of General Foods. He urged business, in a magazine article, to "gang up" against administration policies, but he found it advisable later to withdraw the expression and explain that he only meant "get together." To Ecurly to Conclude It would be easy to draw liaslly conclusions from all of this, with no facts to support them. For one thing, the degree to which all business, big and little, is against the President has not been established. The Democrats contend that they will have much business and banking support next year, particularly from com- Dolores Returns in Mother Role A stunning girl, lowdr photo, •when nho left tho screen seven years ago to wed John 8arry j - tnore and boar him ' two chit-» dron; a beautiful, mature woman now, top photo, Dolores Costollo, In her screen' 'conie- back, will play the mother of F- r o d d is Bartholomew in a, forthcoming' .production.

This town, says George Burns, is "the only place on earth where Grade Allen can't embarrass me." Hollywood is a place where the brain trusters will pay $80,000 for a successful Broadway play, and then spend $80,000 more changing it around so nobody, including the author, can recognize it. Tills is a town where even a title by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow may not pass the censors. They've changed "The Children's Hour" to "These Three" to circumvent associations between the name and the daring, un- filmnble play. New sport of Cinemanias princes— gliding. Jimmy Cagney and Robert Armstrong have taken it up. One of Mae West's staurichest fans is Marlene Dietrich. The latter always drops around to listen when Klondike Lou records a song. On the comeback list; Lugia Mon- munilies largely dependent on agriculture. . Another thing to be borne in mind i.s that the mere existence of important financial backing for the Republicans does not prove that the election is to be "bought," or that any illegal or immoral methods are to be indulged in. The legitimate expenses of a national campaign arc tremendous, and both parties spend plenty of money when they have it. All that can be done now i.s to note the facts as they exist, mid wonder what may come out of thorn. / will offer at Public Sale at my home in Columbus, Arkansas, on MONDAY, DEC. 16,1935, the following' personal property o'Clock, a, m, sharp.

Cultists Defend Polygamy Belief Declare It Is Mormonism —But Mormons Excommunicated Them KINGMAN, Ari.-(/P)-l. C. Spencer and four other Short Creek colonists defended polygamy as part of their religious belief nt Spencer's trial on "open and notorious cohnbitation" charges hero Tuesday. The defense closed with testimony from Spencer who admitted that ho had practiced polygamy and told of his two wives, I The state had rested with evidence | picturing him as having two wives, 13 children and another baby on the Way. "Have you ever heard of the United Order?" asked Victor Hayek, Ills attorney. "I wns born into the order at Orderville, Ut." "Is the principle of plural marriage a belief of the United Order?" "No." "Is it a part of the Mormon faith?" "Yes." "Are you a Mormon?" "I was until excommunicated in 1925." "Do you still cling to the beliefs of the Mormon faith?" "Yes." "While you were in Mexico, Lee's Ferry and Short Creek, where was Sylvia Allred?" (Spencer's alleged polygamous wife). "She lived with inc." "Do you know Lyndia Spencer?" "She is my legal wife." "How many children have you?" "Nine by her." "How long have you believed in plural marriage?" "All my life." Admitting the advocacy of plural marriage as a part of their religious belief, Bishop John Y. Barlow, Isaac Curling, the latter's wife, Elva, and Roy Johnson, testified on behalf of Spencer, one of two polygamists under prosecution. Barlow, leader of the Short Creek clan of some 200 members said the United Order, of which Spencer is a member, is an economic and religious organization. Barlow denied the group has beliefs other than those of the' original Mormon doctrines. J. W. Musser, Salt Lake City, treasurer of the United Oi-der, testified the cult was patterned after the doctrines of Joseph Smith, original Mormon prophet. Witnesses for the prosecution said j Spencer had a legal wife and nine! children in Utah but had been living I at Short Creek with Sylvia. Allred. She has borne Spencer four children and is to become a mother again. Charles Hcaton, president of the Kanab stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon), testified the church excommunicated 14 Short Creek residents for their belief in polygamy. County Attorney E. Elmo Bolljnger produced through Howard Roarke, relief investigator, affidavits in which Spencer and the woman allegedly admitted the parentage of four children. tagna. Or maybe you recall him as Bull Montana. ' He has an acrobat role in "Song and Dance Man." Double Pay, Hnlf Work There arc more than 100 highly paid screen scriveners in Hollywood, but' only half of them did any writing that i was translated into celluloid during • the last 12 months. It's THAT kind of town. Somebody gave Fred Astaire a little tin flute. He tootled so amusingly that they've written it into "Follow the Flee." The league may get around to invoking some sanctions against 20th | Century-Fox. Five war pictures are \ shooting there now; or pictures with battle scones. A pen sketch of Jimmy Durante in the Brown Derby requires two frames, tile second is for his nose. Charles Ruggles is building the Pacific Coast's largest dog kennels near Hollywood. Raising terriers is a hobby that pays big dividends. Ann Harding once worked as a clerk in an insurance office. Allison Sklpworth is one of the topflight bridge players of the screen colony. November, as usual, proved the poorest month for Hollywood fan mail. April is always best. Nobody knows just why, but it probably has something to do with spring.
