Outlining a possible source of revenue for construction of farm- to-market roads, said that the state should levy a "proper highway usage tax upon trucks using our highways and the increased revenues thus produced be allocated to the Iowa state highway conjr r 'l3s;on" for construction. Gas Tax Rec?ic>f;. Together with gasoline tax receipts now allocated to the commission for such roads, and federal appropriations, he said, "it is not unreasonable to expect that such a plan would eventually provide 10 million dollars annually." The $70,000 annually which the state pays for office rent, he said, •would finance "over a relatively snort period of time" construction of a new state office building. Enforcement of truck regulations and highway safe':y measures, he told the assembly, should be placed in a single motor vehicle department, with an enlarged highway patrol empowered to enforce all highway college, which trains the greater part of our teaching staff." After stating the educational system should be "divorced from politics," Krascliel said: "If the superintendent of public instruction is to continue as the one co-ordinating influence between state and the public school system and the public school system with the rest of the educational system, it seems desirable that the selection of the incumbent should be the responsibility of the board of education or some other non-partisan body created for the purpose of dealing with educa- j TOLD OF DEATH OF HER HUSBAND Mrs. Johnson, Partner of Explorer, Brave as She Gets News. LOS ANGELES, (IP)— Mrs. Osa Johnson bravely heard Thursday that her husband and hunting partner, Martin Johnson, had died of injuries suffered in the crash Tuesday of a transport plane near Newhall. Johnson, noted camera hunter on African game trails, died early Wednesday, the second fatality of the crash which occurred Tuesday morning. Dr. Sydney Burnap broke the news to Mrs. Johnson as she lay in the Hospital of the Good Samaritan. With Mrs. Johnson was Mrs W S Leighty S " ' judiciary."

Gemricher, 35, i former Polk county deputy audi- ' tor. liad confessed in a statement to payroll warrants totaling 51,700. Burkman said Gemricher, who left office Jan. 1, admitted cash- ir.g the warrants which had already been cashed by the persons to whom they were issued, but through an oversight did not bear the county treasurer's stamp showing cancelation. The county attorney said Gem- was employed in the Jackson Heights apartment building where the attractive 25 year, old housewife was strangled and beaten with a hammer before her lifeless body was dumped into a bathtub Monday, would be arraigned in Queens felony court. The murder charge on which the Negro was booked by Lieut. Edward J. O'Neill at the Newtown police station said Greene "during the commission of a burglary xxx struck and killed one Mary Case with a hammer, causing her death." "Theft was the motive," Sullivan said in a terse statement. "He was let into the apartment by her (Mrs. Case) on the pretext he was going to wash the windows. That was before 2 p. m., just how long I can't say." Blood-smeared fingerprints on the apartment woodwork and a bloodstained pair of trousers found in an incinerator chute were the clews that led to the arrest of Greene at his Harlem home 36 j hours after the killing. Skull Was Crushed. A blood stained hammer, also taken from the incinerator, was established by police as the instrument with which Mrs. Case's skull was crushed. Frank Case, 30 year old Cornell university graduate now employed by a hotel supply company, found his wife's lifeless body in the tub, which was covered by a sheet, when he returned from his office Monday night. Overturned furniture in the apartment gave evidence of Case's struggle for life. Funeral services for Mrs. Case were arranged for Thursday afternoon at her former home in Lancaster Pa., where she and Case were married Nov. 23, 1935. DIAL AT 1210 KILOCYCLES DON AMECHE FORMERLY ATTENDED IOWA SCHOOL More than 10 years ago, Father Howard, president of Columbia academy at Dubuque, saw a handsome young student playing a part in a school play with finesse he thought remarkable for a prep school boy. After the performance, he singled out the boy and took him aside. "Son," he said, "you belong on the stage, and if you have the courage to take the knocks that go with success In a career, one day you will be a famous actor." The boy left Columbia, studied law at Marquette university, at Georgetown and the University of Wisconsin, abandoned law for a stage career and became a star of screen and radio. Last week the kindly clergyman and the former Columbia student held a reunion at the NBC studios. The clergyman was Archbishop Howard of Portland, Ore., whose spiritual qualities had .brought him elevation to one of the highest posts in the Catholic church within a decade. His former charge was Don Amsche, famous matinee idol of the air, leading man on Campana's First Nighter and star of "Ra- raona," "Ladies in Love," "One in Mrs. i a Million" and other pictures. ! With almost prophetic vision Father Howard had predicted Ameche's future. Campana's First Kighter, starring Ameehc, is broadcast over WHO each Friday night at 9 o'clock. SIMPSON FILES SLANDER SUIT Declares Wpman Said He Was Paid to Let Wife Divorce Him. LONDON, (#>—Ernest Aldrich Simpson, former husband of Mrs. Walk's Simpson, has filed a slander suit against Mrs. Joan Sutherland, alleging she said Simpson received 3. sum of money to permit his American wife to divorce him, it was learned Wednesday. Mr-.. Sutherland is the wife of Ly.-ut. C)l. A. H. C. Sutherland v; o has been decorated by the gov"'TTvient with the Order of the British Empire and also the Military Cross. Simpson declined to discuss the case except to coi.lirm that notice of the suit had been issued and served on Mrs. Sutherland. The suit, sources clo;* to Simpson said, was the result of Simpson's efforts to quiet talk of his divorce and alleged payment of money which arose after the temporary decree was issued to his wife at Ipswich Oct. 27. Simpson was declared to have been irritated by discussion in both the London financial district and in Mayfair society circles. Simpson's attorney refused to disclose details of the suit beyond the fact notice had been served. NOXZEMA PROVES WONDER CREAM!

Sullivan announced Thursday that M a j o r Greene, stocky Negro porter, had signed a full confession admitting the bathtub slaying of pretty Mrs. Mary Robinson Case. The 33 year old porter broke down and admitted his guilt at . llp . I 5:25 a. m. Sullivan said, after he ' had refused for 24 hours to admit complicity in the crime. Three minutes later authorities had booked him at the Newtown police station in Queens. Greene answered questions amiably when he was being charged. He was transferred later to Manhattan police headquarters to be shown in the lineup. A special guard was placed at 'i,': door to his cell. Beaten With Hammer. Sullivan said the porter who mitted the report—first of a group covering the whole government— to Chairman Byrd (D-Va.) Could Be Greater. "It is my personal guess." said Byrd. "that this saving can be made even greater because the recommendations cover agencies | employing more than 25.000 per| sons at total operating expenses aggregating more than $60,000,000 annually." The Virginian, affirming his determination to press for great economies, has estimated the budget could be reduced by up to $300,000,000 a year.

Basis for Action. They retained the Brookings institution to draft a functional survey with "efficiency and economy" the objectives, he said. He emphasized the recommendations were a basis for action by the committees and "are not to be construed as the sense of the committee." "Upon the president's invitation," Byrd said, "1 have discussed the matter with him and was advised by him that the recommen- I dations of the senate commitlee for abolition and .consolidation might be used effectively to supplement his own investigation." Senator Byrd has criticized some of the president's recommendations, opposing creation of new cabinet posts, an increase in cabinet salaries and abolition of the comptroller general's office. Split Wide Open. The house, split wide open- over the president's recommendations, was called on to decide whether to set up a special committee on reorganization legislation. Leaders were confident of shoving to passage measures to establish a temporary committee of seven which also would serve with senators on a joint committee studying the revamping problem. Some prominent democrats like j Chairman Buchanan (D., Texas) | of the appropriations committee, thought a permanent unit should be created to "nose" .continually Keep Close Tab. Others like Representative Dies (D., Texas) said the appropriations committee itself ought to be able to prune the executive branch of the government by holding down appropriations and keeping expenditures under close surveillance. Buchanan said a reorganization committee ought to be able to report out 30 or 40 bills in its first year ar.d that its first measure should provide for abolition of 15 to 20 federal agencies. Chairman Ramspeck (D., Ga.) opposed a permanent committee on the grounds it would usurp three-fourths of the jurisdiction of the civil service committee.
