Nazis Say U.S. Is Using Same Tricks Subsidizing of Exports by U. S. Similar to German Program By PRESTON GROVEK WASHINGTON - Yankee slates- men are hard pressed to explain to questioning foreigners how our new subsidy trading system is in anywise different from the system in Germany, which the United States has lambasted privately and publicly. Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, father of the export crop subsidy, insists there are truly fundamental j differences. But it is a fact that Ger- j manyman trade competitors in Brazil bow °f crepe, are able to make out a very good case against us. Further, there are reasons HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Life of Crime (Continued From Page One) family's way was not the road to millions. But that's just up to now. They've been questioning the onetime Tammany leader, Jimmy Hines, a convicted fixer, about Louis Buchalter. The government took his right- hand man, Shapiro, out of circulation and put him in prison for violating the anti-trust laws. Only the other day the New York police caught up with another Lepke lieutenant, Joseph (Joe Strawberry) Amoruso. Louis Buchaltcr's number is up. All his millions are losing their spell. His friends are getting caught in traps. That's the way with the pattern of crime. It's always tied up with a to suspect that altogether friendly nations will get steamed up enough about our subsidy system to erect new trade barriers against us. That would be a stinging blow to Secretary of State Hull who has spent a half dozen years trying to be a beacon light of unrestricted trade. German propagandists say that the United States, the great moralist nation, condemns Germany for building up her trade by tricky devices and at the same time tries the same tricks in her own Yankee way. Wallace Explains There is no doubt that the United States lowered its currency value so as to cut in on world trade, and equally no doubt that we are in the subsidy business, even though in a limited way. We have paid an average 25 cents a bushel to help export 90.000 bushels of wheat. Now we are going to pay 1% cents a pound, or S7.50 a bale to increase our cotton exports from about 3,500,000 bales to 6,000,000. Because of Germany's efforts to penetrate our tariff barriers by offering subsidies, the treasury imposed a 25 per cent penalty tariff on German imports. Privately, some administration officials suspect that when the cotton susbsidy goes into effect, some other countries will pile penalty tariffs on U. S. cotton goods, for of course the subsidy we offer is paid both on exports of raw cotton and on exports of cotton goods. Secretary Wallace is trying to soften any foreign knckback by explaining that we are simply trying to get back markets which we lost through pegging our domestic prices, by cotton and wheat loans, at a level above competitive world prices. But Germany has asserted that she is trying only to get back markets taken away from her during the world war. But How Else? No matter how successful the subsidy program may be in unloading a Louis (Lepke) Buchalter was one of 11 children of an industrious immigrant on New York's East Side. Instead of going to high school, Louis threw in with another East Side kid, Jacob Shapiro, and developed his first racket. Shaprio would approach a pushcart peddler in a good location. If the fellow didn't clear out when Jake growled, "Gerrahere" (the contraction of theat growl gave him nickname, Gurrah) Jake smacked him. spilled his pushcart The boys would give that location to anotherpeddler— from whom Lepke har collected a fee. That Kid Partnership lasted more than 20 years. The pair took up pack- passing wagons and selling the contents to fences. In 1915, Lepke was caught with some stolen baggabe and was arrested for the first time. Twice more, between 1918 and 1922, he went to jail. Eleven other arrests followed, but there were no more convictions. Lepke was getting smart. He had determined to become the underworld's biggeset big shot. He'd learned it paid to hire thugs to do your dirty work, and that crime paid most when it was organized. Labor unions were rising in the prosperous post-war years. Little Augie Orgen's gang had been working unions —and employers—when, in 1927, Augie was mowed down. Lepke and Gurrah succeeded him. Lepke always expressed sympathy when a gangster suddenly departed this life. But his affairs often prospered after one was gone. His agents forced fur dealers, garment makers and their employees into "protective" anyone hesitated, organizations. If somebody would throw searing acid into his face, wreck his shop or blackjack him. Acids maimed, blackjacks hurt, but the victim lived on. But you can't always let your enemies go on living if you're going to stay on top of the rackets. Take William Snyder. He headed a flour trucking union that Lepke decided should be his. Snyder met a night in an East Side restaurant. They gave him a chance to join up, but Snyder just couldn't see it their way. While the rest ducked, somebady sneaked in and shot Mr. Snyder in the back—dead. Incidents like that helped reduce other prospects' sales resistance.

Just how the country otherwise would meet the situation is a problem U. S. exports of cotton have been cut almost in half while Brazil, India, China and Egypt, the principal rivals, have picked up where we lost. Regardless of the mortalities of the situation, the subsidy program promises to raise Cain in spots. The wheat subsidy raised trouble at once. Subsidized U.

In the interests of good neighborliness we backed out of that deal, it in their power to cause trouble in other directions. It is reported here that Canadian officials already are looking up the possibility of accepting the lower priced raw cotton but Insisting on a penalty tariff on subsidized American cotton goods. In that way both England and Canada could get the benefit of cheap cotton and yet protect their home markets fro msubsidized American cotton goods. All in all the thing raises heaps of problems to be taken up at the international cotton conference here in September. Washington Home Destroyed by Fire House and Furnishings of Tom G. Haynes Goes Up in Smoke Fire, believed to have started from a defective flue, Monday destroyed the home and furnishings of Mr. and Mrs. Tom G. Haynes, southeastern edge of Washington. The house burned to the ground. All the furnishings were reported destroyed with the exception of a piano. Mr. and Mrs. Haynes. residents of Washington for a number of years, were reported to be at home at the time of the blaze, but were helpless in extinguishing it. It was reported the loss was partly covered by insurance. • i • NYA Program to Be Outlined Here B. L. Barton to Meet School Executives of 4 Counties August 28 High school superintendents and principals, school board members and interested citizens of Hempstend, Nevada, Miller and Lafayette counties will meet at Hope High School at 2:30 p. m. Monday for a meeting with B. L. Harton, supervisor of the student aid program of the National Youth administration, who will discuss the rules and regulations covering the operation of the phase of the NYA program for the coming year. The student aid program of the National Youth Administration is designed to enable young men and women from low income families to complete their high school education. Were it not for this assistance these young people would be forced to leave school. The determination of eligibility of students to receive school aid in any institution is the responsibility of the officials of the institution. Usually the heads of the various institutions make use of the faciliti"" of such private and public agencies or individuals as will enable them to to obtain information necessary to select the most needy applicants for school aid. The assistance given needy students tao enable them to complete their education is not a gift. These young people are paid on an hourly basis for work they do in the schools as librarians, labortory assistants, clerical workers, helpers in maintenance of bilud- ings and grounds and many other nee- Blevins Farmers (Continued from tag* One) All the feed is the sa'rrte. "Nothing is charged against his chicken house and the operation of it —except the items lhat go with it. When the farmer sells his broilers he can more clearly see and realize the profit from raising broilers—If nftthing is cahrged against him other than the items it takes to produce the broilers," Mr. Nelson declared. He concluded his speech by saying that farmers have no trouble in finding a market for the bioilers. Trucks from Dallas, New Orleans, Memphis, Shrcvcport and other cities come direct to Blevins, loud their trucks and pay cash on the spot. Guests of the club Tuesday other than Mr. Nelson were L. J. Brown of Blevins, and County Agent Oliver Adams. erred by being spectacular in crime; it was almost inevitable they'd be rubbed out. No high life for Little Louis (Lepke is a corruption of the Jewish word for "Little Louis"). He began investing in dope, for one thing. In 1931 he sent one Hymie( Curly) Holtz to Europe with a big chunck of change to buy dope. Curly spent plenty on gambling and women, then told Lepke customs agents haa seized most of the dope. Curly hasn't been seen since. Best reports are he's at the bottom of the Eaast River in a concrete kimono. Lepke rode high, taking advantage of weak industries, consolidating gains of liquidated revals, keeping himself out of the spotlight. Then events took a hand. NRA codes upsets some of his labor rackets. In 1937, he and Gur- rah jumped 510,000 bail on an antitrust charge. Gurrah surrendered after a year. New there's §30,000 on Lepke's head. A series of killings in New York promoted Districl Attorney Dewcy to announce that Lepke was trying to exterminate former henchmen along with anyone else who might be a witness against him. Governor Orders Slash in Expense Bailey Says State Revenues Made Uncertain by Supreme Court LITTLE ROCK — Declaring last week's supreme court refunding opinion had caused an "uncertain condition" in state revenues, -Goveronr Bailey announced Monday he had ordered a "drastic curtailment" of departmental operating expenses. "I am instructing department heads to curtail expenses in every possible way clue to the uncertain condition of revenues in view of the refunding opinion," the governor said. He made it plain that his reference was to the court's ruling that Paul E. Gutcnsohn of Fort Smith was not a legal member of the senate and to the effect that ruling might have on validity of the Nyberg revenue-producing act, which passed the senate with a bare majority including Gutensohn's vote, and other acts. The Nyberg measure levied a consumers sales tax of §3.50 a barrel on beer and a three per cent sales tax on the wholesale price of liquor, dedicating the revenues to the state Tuberculosis Sanatoria, the University of Arkansas Medical School, Welfare Department and other agencies. The government said the present Highway Department set-up was predicated on the theory that there would be 36,000,000 a year available for road construction but that "with no construction money now available, personnel will have to be reduced and other expenses cut." Agriculture Extension Service funds have been disappointing," he continued, "and htey are likely' to be further curtailed by the implications of the supreme court decision. Welfare Department administrative expenses, he said, would have to be slashed. Humphrey Not to Run for Congress Entry of George R. Steel May Have Caused His : Decision LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-MV-State Auditor J. Oscar Humphrey announced Monday night he would not be! a candidate for congress in n special fourth district election September 12. Issuing no statement, he declined to amplify the oral announcement to newspapermen. Last week Humphrey said he planned to outer the recc. Political circles speculated that the entrance into the nice of SUite Senator George R. Steel might hiive influenced Humprhcy's decision. They live in adjoiing counties—Humphrey in Scvicr and Steel in Howard, both in the southern half of the district. In many campaigns, congressional candidates from the northern (Furl Smith) half of the district luwe been successful, the result often following division of votes between entries from the lower half. With the deadline for qualifying to participate in the election only 24 hours away. They are Fadjo Cravens, Fort Smith; Deputy Land Commissioner Claude Rankin, Murfrcssboro; and Steel. All have filed corrupt practics pledges, presented nominating petitions and paid their §110 ballot fees. In addition, corrupt practices pledges have been filed by Circuit Judge J.
