"With the aid of 100 commissioned deputies we hope to bo able to operate all next year without exceeding the amount set aside for law enforcement," the sheriff concluded. 6-Months Report on Sales Required State Sales Tax Blanks Cover Period July 1 to December 31 A sales tax report for the six-month period July 1 to December 31 will bo required by State Revenue Dep,-irt- ment, it was announced Thursday by Itevenuc Agent Kd Van Sickle. Blanks for this report arc being dis- .tributod to various business firms. They also are available at the revenue 'fficc in the Carrigan building. Business firms have until February to file this report. Mr. Van Sickle pointed out section 2 of the Hall retail sales tax law. U reads: "Section 2,—Annual Return. On or before February first of each year each, retailer shall make an annual return in lhe form required by the Commissioner. He shall transmit, tlie return to the Commissioner, together with liis remittance covering the tax due to and including the remittance for December. Such return shall be made under oath or affirmation on the form prescribed. Hie Commissioner may for good cause extend the j time for making the annual return on the application of any person subject to the tax lo fit fiscal year used in the ordinary course of business." FLAPPER "FANNY SAY'S: I was with Dr. Brough at the Majes- (S)tic theater in El Dorado that'autumn night in 1928 when, after breaking with Die Baptist church, he took the stump for Alfred E. Smith in order to .kave Arkansas the shame of having It said thiit she had rejected a presidential nominee, oil account of hU religion. Religion nnd prohibition had been alleged by some of. the church leader to be the all-important issues on whicl a president should be elected in 192f Just before Dr. Brough's speech a the Majestic theater I had seen on tlv stage of the Coliseum A. C.'club thi pastors of the Baptist and my owi church, the Methodist, seated on eithc side of the former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan—the three of them organizing the' Hoover Democratic club for Union county. .Looking back at the .events which J followed Hoover's election in 1928, all this scorns short-sighted and futile Tho differences "that rise among men on issues Auch as religion nnd liquor- control are eternal. They will never be, nnd do- not necessarily have to be, polvcd-^>.ut there were men to say in 1928 that these things had to be "solved" while the country waS ;Jeav- ing unsolved the many fundamental problems which were to burst most disastrously upon us in 1929 and 1930. And so I remember Dr, Brough, a devout churchman but of such liberal and courageous spirit'that ho Glared to think for himself, 'and dared to say openly that which he .thought. ,Fqr thosc-.wpro dangerous tlnics— and a man,of courage will in the face of danger always.be revered,'as we revere Charles Hillman Brough today XXX In mid-Atlantic the Lindberghs, fleeing to England because of threats against their second baby, celebrated a lonely Christmas—the only passengers on a freight ship. For the terror visited against this American family the newspapers are partly to blame. They publicized even the babies, because the newspaper public wanted to know jibout. them, and what the public wanted the public would pay the newspapers to get. The rest of the blame descends on the slow-moving machinery of the American courts, and upon a sensation-seeking citizenry who appear sometimes to judge a criminal case with all the logic and sobriety thut attends a Hollywood popularity contest. In small towns all over America mon are offering to place bets on whether Bruno Richard Hauptmami dies. Why not offer odds on whether the Lindberghs' second son survives the fate of his little brother? I have here before me a bulletin from Fred S. Ferguson, president of NEA Servieo, Inc., largest feature syndicate in tho world, which furnishes The Star with its cartoons and news-pictures. Mr. Ferguson writes: "NEA Service does not believe that tho meaning of, or right under, the term 'Freedom of tlie Pi-ess' is so broad as tft justify invasion of any individual's privacy or the endangering of the life of a child. "Neither NEA Service nor its affiliate, Acme Newspictures, has is r sued or attempted to take pictures of the Lindbergh baby "Furthermore, neither NEA nor Acme will issue or attempt to take pictures of (he baby until they may be made and issued witli tin; parents' consent. Tlie London bureau of NEA Service and Acme have been so informed and no effort will be made to obtain pictures of the Lindberghs' arrival in England against the Lindberghs' will." The Star has .stint NEA its congratulations. That is a just and humane policy, one that the thinking public No Reprieve Likely for Bruno* Declares Jerse/sJGovernor Hoffman Not to Act If Pardon Court Refuses an Extension DEATH DATE JAN. 13 Meanwhile, Lindberghs Spend Lonely Christmas in Mid-Atlantic TRENTON, N. J. - (#•) - Governor Hoffman's press representative announced Thursday'.that the governor had authorized him to say that "at the present time" he did 'no contemplate a reprieve for Bruno Richard Hauptmann should the Court of Pardons refuse clemency. . . The announcement was made as a reply to published reports that the governor would grant Hauptmann n 30-day stay of'execution if the Court of Pardons fails 1 to act. Lindberghs at Sea NEW VORK.r-(^P)-A stonny, chill Christmas at sea was observed • Wednesday by America's most notable ex- i patriatos—Col.. Charles A. Lindbergh and his family. . . Sole passengers aboard the freighter American Importer, Colonel Lindbergh and his wife.and their 3-year-old.'son Jon, presumably were sung and warm, in the gaily decorated smoking room of the sturdy ship. No word has come from them since they sailed. Before sailing from New York early Sunday, ship's -provisions were made for a Christmas .tree, decorations, logs, for a fireplace yule blaze and turkey dinner. On the basis of an 18-knot progress, the American Importer should have been jwcll along toward .midatlantic Wednesday night on iU course to England 'and the refuge sought by the Lindberghs. The freighter should be nbout 1,500 miles from New York. Ilauptnvuui In Despair TRENTON, N. J.—The despair of Bruno Richard Hauptmann spread Wednesday to his lawyers. They decided to abandon their effort .0 save him from the electric chair by in appeal to Charles A. Lindbergh to listen again to the gutteral voice of Die convicted kidnaper. Though Bruno's lawyers once were convinced that Lindbergh could never gain identify, the voice of Hauptmann ns that of "John," could called "Hey, Rise irv Tr^p Olfsets Business Revolt w Deal, Sa^s Expert Ryhn 3oktor," in St. Raymond's cemetery, 'hey have decided not to ask the Court >f Pardons to invite him back for such a test. Hauptmann has sunk into a pro- ound despair since learning the Lind- berghs had fled the country. Christ- nas carols echoed through the death witse where he sat soberly relishing ^special dinner Wednesday. Like his ive doomed companions, he was served roast |x>rk with nlashed |x>tatocs, ipple sauce, mince pie and coffee at 'uncli. Hauptmann still was despondent over his prospect of escaping the chair January 13. "He's afraid to face the inevitable," Hauptmann said bitterly to a friend referring to Lindbergh. "Anyway, why should the Lindberghs go to England for safety? There are more crimes per square mile there than anywhere else in the world. At least a dozen major crimes in Great Britain .in the lost two years have not been solved."
