PEIPING, (&)— About 100,000 drug addicts, ordered by the government to "be cured ' or die," will be liable for execution after New Years, Mayor Chin Teh- Chun estimated Monday. Police officials awaited orders for the roundup of addicts which is scheduled to start shortly after the Dec 31 deadline set by the government several months ago. Mayor Chin expressed beaef, however, the executions would be limited to a few hundred in the early stages of the campaign ^ death for confirmed narcotic US He' pointed out the chief purpose of the drive is to provide a moral lesson and said municipal officials were depending largely on co-operation from Japanese consular authorities in halting drug sales by Koreans. The Chinese claim the drug traffic is carried on almost entirely by Korean salesmen who, as Japanese nationals, cannot be brought to justice under Chinese law. "The world may condemn us for what may be a wholesale execution of drug sufferers but since we cannot reach the real cause of the evil here—namely, the Korean dealers—our only recourse is to' make the use of drugs so dangerous that people simply will not dare to take up a habit punishable by death," a high Chinese official said. High Profit on Ewes Reported by Farmer GUTHRIE CENTER, (ff)— Winford R. Armstrong, Guthrie Center farmer, said he cleared nearly 100 per cent on six high grade ewes he bought last spring. Armstrong, a young fanner with a wife and small son,' said he borrowed money from the Resettlement Administration to make a start, and spent $48 of the loan to buy the ewes. Up to date he has received $67.15 gross income from the sale of lambs and wool, the farmer said. Howard J. Dodge, Rural Rehabilitation supervisor here, estimated the feed and labor costs of the sheep at $20. On that basis, he pointed out, the sheep have netted the farmer about $47. Armstrong has the original stock which he will use as a nucleus for a flock which the fanner intends to build up through additions and RECOVER BODY FROM MOUNTAIN Man Killed in Fall, Hangs Head Down From Rope Over 24 Hours.
