Orders nlso were given to shut down the carnival at 11 o'clock every night except Saturday, when permission was given to operate until midnighl. Following complaints by South Walnut street residents of intense dust due to truck traffic, South Walnut street was ordered closed between 9th and IGth streets temporarily for repairs. On petition of Mr. Washburn, appearing for the Arkansas Centennial Commission, the council voted to give $100 toward construction and operation of the Arkansas slate exhibit at the 1939 New York World's Fair. Mr. Wnsh- buni has been obtaining pledges from the local industries and larger business houses to underwrite Hbmpstcad county's quota of $125,000 contribution required for the state as a whole. He asked for the city's contribution not as a matter of tax money, but as a donation from the municipal water & light plant, since private utilities and industries elsewhere are contributing to the state exhibit. ENDS WED. VICTOR McLAGLEN —in— 'WE'RE GOING TO BE RICH" IT STARTS THURSDAY HOWARD H U G H E S' AMAZING AIR SKNSATION "HELL'S ANGELS" with JEAN 11AKLOW BKN I.YON JAMES HALL THUR.-FRI. SHTcAVt But Critics Say (Continued from Pago One) Unemployment would decrease, because nobody over 50 would want a job, leaving an increased number of jobs (due to better business) open to those under 50. Note the difference from the Townsend Plan, which was to be financed by u 2 per cent tax on every business transaction. The "Ham and Eggers" say their proposed tax would be far less, for they presume that each "warrant dollar" would pass through many transactions in a weed's time before an additional 2 per cent tax would be due. The "Ham and' Egg" -tag attached il-self to the movement when it issued n descriptive booklet with a luscious- looking plate of this delicacy on the cover, with the alluring legend, "Ham and Eggs for Californians." Such is tlie theory. The objectives nre laudable. All opposition has centered around "will it work?" Opponents reply with a united and horrified cry of "No! And it would ruin the state while it failed!" They argue like this: First, it is a delusion, because it plainly violates the provision in the U. S. Constitution forbidding states to coin money. Proponents say it doesn't. Only the courts could decide. Second, the issuance of so tremendous a volume of "money" would throw the price structure out of gear, mid immediately prices would skyrocket. The people receiving the scrip (and everybody else, of course) would soon be paying such pi-ices for ham and eggs that $30 wouldn't buy a plateful. Proponents admit prices .would rise. But they say: let them rise, for the bill provides that the state would then just issue enough more scrip so that pensioners could still buy their hum and eggs. What the other people who are paid in real money would do, is another question. Third, the act provides that California would have to take scrip in tax payments. Soon, it is argued, it would have nothing but scrip, and its credit would go bust. California products made under this artificially-high scale of wages and prices could not be sold in any other state, this point of view contends. Voters Will Decide Plan's Fate Administration would be in charge of a State Retirement Life Payments Administrator, who must, according to the proposed amendment, be eithei Roy G. Owens, economist of the movement, Will Kindig a former LOS Angeles city councilun or J. C, Elliott, now a minor state official. All you would have to do to qualify for the pension is to apply, and swear: 1. That you are 50 years or more old. 2. That you are a registered voter. 3. That you are not employed, and do not employ others. 4. That you lived in the state a year before the act. (People who move in afterward must wait five years to become eligible.) The act takes the word of all applicants on all these matters. There is no provision for investigation of applicants. The whole thing hangs on whether you believe the public would accept this kind of "money," or whether every merchant who took it would simply give the purchaser as mucli for his warrants us the merchant figured they were worth at the time. Discounting and speculating in warrants would soon wreck their value, this argument runs. No one, of course, can say for sure how the Ham and Eggs plan would work until it is tried. But if the huge majority which supported Downey at the primary remains loyal on November 8 to the proposed law he supports, the answer would come soon after that. NEXT: A campaign exceeding- iji bitterness that of 1934 seems likely to sweep California us other antagonisms deepen the split between Hum and Eggers ahd rintl- HIUU and Eggcrs. On a bright day the surace temperature of an asphalt road may be 150 degrees Fahrenheit or more. 1 Pretty but serious 12-year-old Sue Nye, above, stepped forward-at a meeting of amateur magaclans in Chattanooga, Teiui., and offered' to do a hynottsm net. A 7th "grader and daughter ol a Chattanooga used'car dealer, she never had performed in public before, Here the camera' has recorded her penetrating gaze mid the strange way she holds her hands as slit begins an hypnosis. 2 Because Taylor Gibson had been hypnotized before, Sue chose him as an easy subject..-Ignoring Spectators and cameramen. She started the •attempt at hypnosis by removhij Gibson's tie'end'openlng his collar, as seen'above. Then, as shown in the lower photo, she held up a coin and commanded Gibson to keep his eyes oh it. "When your eyelids get heavy, close them," she droned. "When I count three,- you will be sound asleep." 3 After one mJniite, Gibson's body seemed to become rigid. Sue coiu- maiulcd him to full backward—mid he fell. The girl's father caught the unconscious subject, us pictured above. Later, with the aid of three other ir.cn, Gibson was stretched out on a rug where a physician examined him. The doctor, a student of Sjgimind Freud's psychological theories, pronounced Gibson to be in a oomplcte "catatonic" state. His heart qnd'breath- ing- were reported to be slower. 4 Sue Nye then proceeded to duplicate the old side-show stunt with the hypnotized subject. As seen in the photo at top, she had him placed on two supports standing at considerable distance apart. The subject remained perfectly rigid. Finally, the girl took him out of his apparent trance. The re-awakened subject is seen in the bottom photo looking rather weary. His flrst request was for a cigarette. Sue reported her eyes hurt a, little. A writer who has just had a book banned in Germany charges the authorities never read it. Maybe it wasn't what he said so much as the tome he said it in. If tho militarization trend in the world keeps up at this pace much longer, the common door-to-door line in the future will be: "I'm working my way through War College selling conscriptions." Let's hope the leadership squabble in the auto workers' union clears up by Labor Day. That section of the parade would certainly look funny, with half a dozen drum majors and no marchers.

NEW THEATER GEORGE O'BRIEN—in DANIEL BOONE —and— BOBBY BREEN -in HAWAII CALLS THURS-FRI. Bruce Cabot, Bcvcrlcy Roberts Tonuny Ryan ill—"TENTH AVENUE KID" We, the Women By Ruth Millett Reason Now Rules Where Romance Was the King Once Getting married always lias been a serious business. But the generation marrying now is the first one that has been let in on the fact—before hand. Forward-thinking high schools and colleges are making certain that their graduates know from the start how serious a step they are taking when they say "I Do" and just about what troubles and complications to expect. If school doesn't get them told, chances are a church or marriage clinic will. Then when they get out and decide on a Imate, the state—if it has passed a blood test law as a prerequisite to marriage—holds them up for a long enough period of time to give them ample opportunity to remember that they are stepping into a serious affair. Divorce statistics in the next ten years ma yprove that all the education end all the precautions are a wonderful thing. And another generation may produce a new high in martial hap- itors to Germany that the big thing over there these days is pomp-priming. A doctor discloses that women's feet are constantly getting bigger. On the other hand, "doll-hats" are coming into style. piness. But ther? is bound to be many a romantic young person, sitting through courses on marriage, and going through all tlie state's requirements who looks back longingly on tlie day when young people entered marriage without so much depressing knowledge of the difficulties involved. The more romantic of tlie young ones are bound to think it was a fine thing when a young man and woman married with the conviction that nothing could happen to their marriage— that no difficulties could ever arise—and that marriage was an adventure on strange and wonderful seas, not a charted course. Some of the marriage-educated young folks are sure to believe that a little ignorance was a privilege. And that the young people of another day had an enviable complacency, that the marriage-educated can never know. But no matter how romantic the past may look, from now on young people will have to be content to have the R that once stood for Romance—stand for Reason. And reason tells us they will benefit from the change. Tokio *•' ; isftfhg ; r'fi Mr; ahd "Mrs, Karl White and Son 'ommy of El Dorado "were Sunday guests of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Stephns.

Water Makes New Sack Stronger— Not Weaker TOKIO, Japan.— (JP) —After four years of research, Dr. JunJi Torii, a chemist, is said to have perfected a new type of heavy paper for use in sacks which resists water and sand better than hemp or leather. It is reported the Japanese army may use the invention to replace jute in the making of sandbags. Jute is imported from India and restricted by trade control. The new paper tends to increase, in strength when left in water for prolonged periods.
