Denied Short Route Soviet officials refused him per mission to flv the shorter route to Alaska via Yakutsk because of unfavorable conditions. He is following the same route taken by Wiley Post and Harold Gatty. who established the w-orld-girdlmg rec ord of eight days, 15 hours and 51 minutes in 1931. fMattern left Moscow five and a quarter hours ahead of the standard set on tnc rosi-uauy flight. He was three hours ahead in reaching Moscow. Post and Hatty stayed there 11 hours and 30 minutes.) Two Water Jumps Mattern's course will take him on two more long over-water hops the sea of Okhotsk and the Bering sea after leaving Khabarovsk. His immediate goal. Omsk, is 1,450 miles east of Moscow. By taking the longer route, he will have the advantage of traveling the regular air route through Fiberia which affords more landing facilities and follows closely the trans-Siberian railway. This will give the aviator a better chance to stay on the course. Asked his reaction to surmises abroad that he was lost when he was unreported for some time after landing in Norway Sunday, Mattern naid: "I fooled them, didn't I?" He ended his trans-Atlantic hop from New York on .Tomfruland, off the south coast of Norway, at 4:15 a. m. (EST) Sunday. Sixteen hours later he flew to Oslo, Norway. At 12:40 a. m. (EST) he took off for Moscow, arriving here seven hours and 17 minutes later. He was 60 hours and 54 minutes out of New York City when he lifted his rd. white and blue winged plane into the east early today. He had intended flying to Novosibirsk from here but decided ugainst it when he learned the landing field there might be too small. Breaks Vacuum Bottles The San Angelo, Tex., flier, describing his battle with the storms In flying across the Atlantic, said he had been forced to break his only two vacuum bottles shortly after the outset because he discovered they were magnetized. That prevented him having his sip of tea, which with fruit comprised his only rations during the flight to Norway.

(UP) Returns from 4,841 precincts out of a state total of 7,248, in Illinois' statewide election on repeal of federal prohibition tonight gave: for repeal, 857,100; against repeal, 177,262. The election, held in conjunction with the naming1 of judges to the state supreme, circuit, superior and probate courts, appeared to have resulted an overwhelming1 Demo cratic victory. In the repeal election, a slate of 50 delegates pledged to repeal of federal prohibition, had been elected tonight to add Illinois to k list of eight other states which have voted to ratify repeal of the ISth amendment. In Chicago the repeal slate scored tremendous victories in various parts of the city, a number of precincts voting solidly to elect the slate. In one precinct located in the fashionable Gold Coast section the vote was 230 to 0. Another precinct voted 398 to 0 and still another 440 to 0. Peoria, the second largest city in the state, went for repeal, seven to one, and. Springfield, state capital, was voting on early returns, almost three to one. Most all industrial centers were overwhelmingly wet; the prohibitionists piling up votes in the rural districts. The delegates will meet in formal convention at Springfield, July 10. formally to carry out the repeal mandate. It was conservatively estimated on the basis of latest returns that more than 1,500,000 votes were cast today. The election in Chicago was marked by ringing of bells, anti-re-pealists reminding their followers by the ringing of church bells which tolled shortly after the polls opened and again at noon.

P ecora Quizzes Rail Chief Van Sweringen's Memory Faulty In Probe Of Morgan Firm INQUIRY HITS SNAG Income Tax Records Of Partners Bring Dispute WASHINGTON, June 5. (UP) A sharp controversy over publication of Income tax records of three J. P. Morgan and Company partners in the senate banking committee today held up temporarily a phase of the inquiry "which holds sensational implications. The committee, failing to reach a decision in a two-hour session today, will decide tomorrow on another secret session whether the evidence dug up by Ferdinand Pecora, committee counsel, will be presented in open session, either by testimony or by a stipulation, or only to the committee. Lamont Involved Committee members said today it involves year-end stock sales, including a sale of stock by Thomas S. Lamont, youthful Morgan partner, to his wife in December, 1930. Other Morgan part ners whose income tax records have been investigated are Harold Stanley and William Ewing. Pecora, checked in his statement to bring out the facts at today's public hearing, turned instead to spread on the committee record the success story of two former Cleveland real estate operators.

Van Sweringen, whose recol lection did not improve during several hours of quizzing, Pecora disclosed how the two had ac quired railroad holdings, beginning with the Nickel Plate, with a negligible capital outlay. Their skill at finance finally led them to the door of the House of Morgan, and the association which began in 1923 was culminated in 1929 in the giant Alleghany Corporation which was engineered by J. P. Morgan to carry the railroad properties of the two brothers. Pecora was able today because of Van Sweringen's lapse of memory, to sketch only the beginnings. Pecora's insistent query was: "How did you operate on so little cash?" He gave up after digging out the details of two ventures, the original purchase of the Nickel (Continued On Page 4, Col. 2) House Rejects Hawaii Action WASHINGTON. June 5 (AP) For the first time in this congress, the house today rejected an ad ministration request by refusing to approve legislation to give President Roosevelt authority to name a mainland resident governor of Ha waii. The rejection, by a three vote margin under a procedure requiring a two-third majority, was only a temporary setback, for proponents may bring it up again under a pro cedure that will require only a ma jority vote. The vote today was 222 for, to 114 against. Charges of "carpetbag govern ment," violation of "solemn treaty obligations" and "simple patronage request" was hurled by the opposition. Proponents replied conditions in the islands had prompted the President's request and his judg ment in the matter was sufficient grounds for approval. The organic act now requires tne naming of an Hawaiian resident ac governor, and the territorial legis lature, chamber of commerce and other insular interests have opposed the change. Delegate McCandless a Democrat, led the opposition or the floor, asking "what justification has congress for partially disenfranchising the people of Hawaii?" McCandless argued congress should make its own investigation of conditions In Hawaii before pass ing upon such legislation. Representative Rankin, Democrat Mississippi, asserted in the debate "conditions in Hawaif have become such that the President is asking permission to appoint someone to remedy these conditions.

Roosevelt And Son This Afternoon Wife Of President To Be Here Between , Planes; Officialdom Of City, County And State Will Greet Visitors THE FIRST LADY of the land will pay Phoenix her first visit today. Promptly at 6 p. m., Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, accompanied by her son, Elliott, and Mrs. Isabella Greenway, will arrive at Phoenix Sky Harbor. She will remain here 29 minutes to be greeted by a long list of state, county and city dignitaries and an expected throng of several thousand valley residents. Governor Moeur and his official staff. President Harry W. Hill of the senate. Speaker S. A. Spear of the house. Mayor F. J. Paddock of Phoenix and the members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors will head the official welcoming committee. Will Extend Welcome Virtually all members of the legislature are expected to join their leaders in extending the formal welcome of the state to its distinguished visitor. Plans perfected by Mrs. Green-way, who is Democratic national committeewoman for Arizona, assured last night that Phoenix would have ample time to pay its respects to the wife of the President Mrs. Greenway's chartered plane of the Gilpin lines, of which Elliott Roosevelt is general manager, will be used for the trip here from Tucson, where Mrs. Roosevelt and her son last night were Mrs. Greenway's guests. En Route To Coast The party will arrive 14 minutes in advance of the westbound American Airways plane, due here at 6:14 p. m. Mrs. Roosevelt will take the passenger air liner when it leaves here at 6:29 p. m., for Los Angeles. Mrs. Roosevelt was unable to come to Phoenix last fall when the then presidential candidate made his memorable visit to Arizona's capital. Her only glimpse of Arizona - at that time was when she joined Mr. Roosevelt at the Green-way ranch near Williams. Elliott Roosevelt has, however, visited here on a number of occasions. While the First Lady will undoubtedly respond to the greetings to be extended her today, she has emphasized time and again on her flying trip to the West started Sunday in Washington that there is to be no political complexion to her journey. Politics Barred "This is a personal trip, entirely" she said yesterday. "There will be no politics. That is the line I drew before 1 left Washington." Mrs. Roosevelt's first pause in Arizona yesterday was at Douglas, where she greeted her son who had flown from Los Angeles. Sunday. Elliott Roosevelt has been in the West five or six months, part of which time he has spent as Mrs. Greenway's guest at Tucson, the remainder on the coast. His mother greeted him happily yesterday, embracing him and smiling gaily. Before leaving for Tucson, where she broke her journey with an overnight stop as Mrs. Greeenway's guest.

Roosevelt Due For Trouble In Vets' Cuts Widening Breach With Congress May Delay Adjournment WASHINGTON, June 5. (AP) A widening breach between . Presi dent Roosevelt and congress over veterans' allowances threatened to day to tear asunder the administn tion's legislative program and in definitely prolong the extra session of congress. While house leaders called a joint meeting of several committees for tomorrow to discuss the President's demand that new taxes be imposed to keep the budget in balance if veterans compensations are to be increased, a protest was made in the senate against the speech of Louis Howe, one of the presidential secretaries, in which he assailed last night the senate limitations upon veterans' cuts. The senate amendment to the in dependent offices bill limited to 25 per cent the amount of reductions that may be made in service connected cases. Howe said last night, while Mr. Roosevelt was giving his views to Democratic house leaders, that the anticipated $170,000,000 outlay under the senate limitation would cost (Continued On Page 2, Col. 5) TXTASHINGTON, June 6. (AP) The administration's $2,000,- 000,000 emergency home mortgage relief bill today saw final action by the senate without even the formality of a record vote, and only a reconciliation of differences between the senate and house measures intervened between the capitol and the White House. Although not a dissenting voice was heard at the call from the vice-president's rostrum that the bill would be "considered passed," me senate previously added several changes of major significance. The most important was to bring within the bill's broad scope homes valued up to $25,000. instead of limiting aid to those worth $15,000 or less, as provided by the house, and $10,000 as recommended by President Roosevelt. Loans To Owners Another was a stipulation that an interest rate of six per cent wouia oe charged on cash ad vances from the projected home owners loan corporation, to, be made only when the home owner could not obtain loans from ordinary lending agencies. The corporation, which would be capitalized for $200,000,000 and with power to issue bonds for $2,000,000,000, would be authorized for three years after the bill be- (Continued On Page 4.

Governor Moeur urged the highway commissioners by letter "to take sums from your appropriations on Highways 89, 66 and 260, and others, in such amounts as will not cripple operations in these districts, but will make it possible to complete Highway 60 east to the , proposed junction with the Cibicue road, thus avoiding a distinct discrimination against this particular road and the people of Central Arizona." Governor's Letter Governor Moeur's letter, sent to each commissioner, read: "In making a thorough examina tion of the tentative highway budget outlined for the coming biennium I feel that some grave injustices are being done, par ticularly in construction on High way 60, east in Gila county. lou are undoubtedly aware that the unemployment situation in Gila county, which is comprised almost entirely of mining districts, is acute at this time, some 4,800 families being entirely out of employment. Even though some of these men could be employed in other localities of the state on highway construction, it is not sound from an economical standpoint. "Avoid Discrimination" "At this time I urge, you to take sums from your appropriations on Highways 89, 66 and 260. and others, in such amounts as will not cripple operations in these districts, but will make is possible to complete Highway 60, east to the proposed junction with the Cibicue road, thus avoiding a distinct discrimination against this particular road ana the people of Central Arizona.

At the same session yesterday the governors by the same vote again passed a resolution opposing development of the Verde River Irrigation and Power District. They continued until tomorrow discussion on possible collection of the remaining $1 per acre installment of the current $2.50 per acre annual assessment. This may be necessary to care for current requirements on project loans, governors said. . John H. Dobson, governor, in discussing possible appointment of Thompson as general superintendent, pointed out that appointment of Harry J. Lawson, formerly power superintendent, to the post formerly held by Charles C. Cragin, had been .only a temporary arrangement. He said the governors had been seeking a man who they hoped would be agreeable to all members and said Mr. Lawson was willing to resume his former post as power superintendent. The governors had Mr. Thompson under consideration, he said. T. T. Forman, another governor, declared he knew Mr. Thompson and was favorably impressed with his ability. On motion of Rudolph Johnson and Forman the board decided to meet at 10, o'clock tomorrow morning to ' confer with Thompson regarding the office. George W. Mickle, president and (Continued On Page 6.

The woman disappeared Saturday when she failed to meet a bus driver near Hermit Trail. Search by rangers disclosed a note under a rock at Santa Maria springs.

About the choicest morsel possible, next to a ringside seat at the battle itself, will be the blow-by-blow megaphone service to be provided valley fans by the Republic and Gazette. Two great transcontinental news wires the Associated Press and the United Press will bring the running stories of the fight direct from the ringside. From the marquee of the Heard building, these blow-by-blow accounts will be megaphoned to the crowd gathered in Central avenue. It's the biggest sports party of the year. Through arrangements with the city, Central avenue will be closed from Adams to Monroe streets during the progress of the fight, that fans may hear the returns without interference from traffic. The fight is scheduled to get under way about 7 p. m., Phoenix time. Scheduled for 15 rounds, it will be concluded not later than 8 p. m. even though it should go the full distance. In New York, however, they are wagering that one or the other of the gladiators will be knocked out. Anyway, it looks like the fistic classic of the year, and probably the greatest match since Jack Dempsey hung up his gloves. Service from the ringside will start about 6:30 o'clock, Phoenix time. Results of the semi-final and one or two of the preliminaries will be furnished the crowd, together with a color story preceding the start of the fight itself. Everyone is invited. It's all free and you will be permitted to bring your own camp chairs or boxes. It has been almost two years since the Republic and Gazette staged a Sports party of this character and a crowd of several thousand listeners is anticipated. Those unable to avail themselves of this service are invited to use the telephone. A corps of operators will be on hand to give you the latest information on the fight's progress.

(AP) Payment of all public and private contracts in legal tender instead of gold became lawful today with the signature by President Roosevelt of the resolution nullifying the gold clause in contracts. Without ceremony. Mr. Roosevelt affixed his signature to the resolution which legalized an already ex istent situation. Ever since the government went off the gold standard it has declined to pay interest on government bonds in gold and gold has not been available for payment of private obligations. The resolution was advanced by the administration to clear away legal obstacles to the present mone tary system. Public Works Bill Reported To Senate WASHINGTON, June 5.

The committee reconsidered the action by which it struck such authority from the bill several days ago. Just a little earlier, It had thrown aside the house proposals and substituted the Harrison plan in a vote which in effect was a decision to increase the taxes upon the industry rather than those of the person of small incomes. The Harrison plan calls for corporation net worth and dividend taxes to finance the $3,800,000,000 worth of public works provided in the bill. The committee then reported the measure to the senate but Demo cratic leaders agreed to let It go over until Wednesday before taking it up on the floor.

Governor Outlines 19 Points Legislators Are Urged To Forget Personal Antipathies bills nsrrkoDUCED Vote On 18th Amendment Is Proposed For October 3. ADMONISHED by Governor Moeur to "forget Individual and selfish interests, petty jealousies and personal antipathies," Arizona's legislature yesterday plunged abruptly into the work outlined for it in the executive message, headed by taxation and budget balancing. When the Journals for the day were closed, bills had been introduced to cover seven of the 19 points outlined by the governor, and members had In their hands for introduction this morning, virtually all other legislation needed to make his complete program effective. He told legislators to disregard one point of his call. The law already covers, he said, federal home loan bank participation. Tax Measures Lead Leading off in the senate were the intangibles and income taxes, both of which were immediately referred to the committee on finance and revenue. In the house a bill to permit an Arizona vote October 3 on 18th amendment repeal took the coveted "HB-1" designation, but It was quickly followed by bills to correct a motor vehicle code error, to protect agricultural products from theft, to permit beer and liquor regulation by communities, and by the administration's new privilege-sales tax act which includes also the levy on luxuries. House bills will have their committee refer ences today. Along with hearing Governor Moeur personally deliver his 1,800-word message, and seating three) new members Mrs. Roy F. Kelley, Gila; J. Melvin Goodson, Maricopa, and Harry- Mader, Yavapai both houses yesterday disposed of the always-troublesome patronage problem and completely cleared decks for action today. Solons Hear Governor Within an hour after convening yesterday. Governor Moeur was be fore a joint session of house and senate telling members exactly what he wanted them to do, and why. "You are familiar with the financial condition of the state," he began. "We have millions of dollars in outstanding unpaid state warrants. Our method of collecting taxes, which has been handed down to us 'through the past 150 years, has broken down. ... "I feel the time has come when a new method of tax collecting must be inaugurated. I am submitting a privilege-sales-luxury tax which has been carefully drawn with the idea of eliminating pyramiding of taxes and of spreading the burden equitably, insofar as possible, over the entire population of our state. ... Intangibles Tax "I am also submitting a proposed equitable tax upon Intangible property. While neither an intangibles nor an income tax lifts any burden from the shoulders of the ultimate consumer, both of these taxes are highly justifiable In that they tend to redistribute the wealth of the country and collect a portion of our taxes from the citizens most able to pay." For these measures the governor asked "earnest consideration" by (Continued On Page 2, Col. 3) Ben Lindsey Bans Apology DENVER, June 5. (AP) Former Juvenile Judge Ben B. Lindsey today lost his appeal for reinstatement to the bar of Colorado, won a possible re-entry through the door of apology and promptly slammed that door shut in the faces of the Colorado Supreme Court. With two justices dissenting, the supreme court today ruled that Lindsey could not be reinstated until he had apologized for statements concerning the court in a book he wrote after his disbarment. With characteristic decision the fiery "little judge" declared In Los Angeles that he would never apologize and charged anew that the disbarment was a greater reflection on the court than on himself. At almost the same time the house of representatives In Wash ington was defeating the President's proposal that he be allowed to appoint a malnlander as governor of Hawaii, a post for which Lindsey has been several times mentioned. Representative Dlrkson, Republican, Illinois, during debate on the proposal today, told the house he understood Judge Lindsey was the man to be appointed. Lindsey, whose social theories and political practices have kept him in the public eye for more than a quarter century, was disbarred tn 1929 for accepting $37,500 from Mrs. Helen Elwood Stokes and her children for his services as a mediator in a controversy over the estate of the late Vjjt E. D. Stokes.
