í 1 R F f Fourteen THE EMPORIA DAILY GAZETTE Emporia, Kansas, Thursday, August 15, 1335 ISSUES ARE CLARIFIED Cent«r Armmd Bndprt, Constitution Rtid Industrial Self-rute. BT John T. Plynn. New Vork. Aug. 15.—With one elecUon on the record, TJOU-. as the months go by, the eco- íiomir issuf E arounü vhich the next campaign will be fought •«•ill be tísriíieá. Two issues stand out lather clea.-Jy already. One revolve» ing the budget, spending for recovery. Tiie other moves around the proposal to amend ths constitution. That iria> seem at first glance a political or legal question. But It fe really economic, because it deals trith the problem of who is to regulate oar economic life — state or federal government. Several more or less regional issues may form — such 'as the processing tax In New Eng- JsjHl ana inflation in the west smd south. Indeed, the question of currency inflation may be n paramount one. But thnt is not clear yet. However, a third question is slow- floating to the top. TÍVJÜ oí the question It is a sur- which got *iixed up with the now defunct NRA — the issue of self-rule in In- •ihisny. - This issue is forming around twu groups of activities. One centers in "1jhe Federal Trade commission. The "Sailing of NBA put an end to the oodes. But now an effort is being .ánade to revive these codes through the Federal Trade Commission. This 'fe not new. Many such codes were ^organized under President Coolidge. . TVhat Is new is that a Democratic ..administration should be trying to do the same thing. . ; As a result we see many old codes : banging on. Or at least we see evi- 'Cences of the code agreements. The •oil code is dead. But oil prices continue to rise and oil production continues to be controlled. ; The steel code is supposed to be dead, but. the steel Industry is still jjperating under the price structure set up by that code. It is talking about continuance of the Pittsburgh plus or basing point system of phantom freight revived by the code. The clothins men hove finished their new code and declare it is a mode. Scores of industries are preparing- new cede? or. in reality, adapting the old codes to the new set-up. Another group af activities centers about the principle of the Guf- iey bill. This is to adopt new laws Loadspcaken «ad Lights for Peter Pn Bud Concert Friday The big band event of the summer for Emporians will be the all- request program and amateur contest to be staged Friday night at 8 o'clock in Peter Pan park by the 161st Field Artillery-Municipal band. The numbers were selected by Emporians, who mailed in their requests the last oí July, so tile program is made up of old favorite*. The amateur music contest is open to anyone in an amateur class who Is not a member of the band. Max Stanley, pianist, and Bob Dewey. boy soprano, are the only contestants definitely in the program for Friday night. Two others are not sure they can appear to compete for toe three prizes offered by the band. Mayor Frank Lost.utter has arranged for lights to flood the amphitheater and to assist those in the crowd in finding their way in and out of the bowl. Loudspeakers also have been installed to eliminate some of the trouble the orchestra for "Midsummer Night's Dream" had In making its softer, tones heard over the entire amphitheater. Another special attraction for the concert will be the full moon. Band music and moonlight mix well, the band men say. MARRIAGE LICENSES. Da!« Coldwell Slou!. Emporia Ifg»l Margaret Eugenia Simpson.

Berlin, Aug. 15 (/P) —Three Roman Catholic brothers of mercy today were sentenced to prison for violation of the German money laws. Friar Ottomar Vey of Montabaur monastery, was found guilty oí "treason to the people" and was sentenced to four years in the penitentiary and to pay a fine of 50,000 markr—about $20,000. The other two Brothers are both members of the same monastery. Brother Joseph Bruemmer, as an accomplice, was sentenced to two years in the penitentiary and fined 20,000 marks—about $8,000. Broth- applying specifically to separate ¡ er Strphan Kok was sentenced to trades, orgnriizir.p such trades into | one year imprisonment and fined employer t.r.Z crn;:!cyc group;, with i 3,000 marks—about $l,20tr. codes fcr the employer groups giv- j They were accused of illegally Ing them the right to fix prices and j transfurring out of the country of production, with labor boards for of failing to declare in their posses- the protection of the employe group?, and with the use oí public iunos to buy ;:p and retire excesrivc plant- capacity. The administration seems to be committed to this principle at least in the coa! industry, while several other industies are studying the plan as a preliminary to adopting it. j But it is clear that the issue ol the control oí industry posed by the now famous NRA experiment is not dean—that industry and labor arc to i(. in some form or other. But it is ccnfused. Neither Democrats nor Republicans can find their way clearly on it. Republicans are for self-rule with no novernment liVi-.-rfercnce or at loa. t a minimum ol it. Democrats do not k'n:w exactly v.lirrc they stand. But apparently the issue is forminp and tr-e two parties will be forced to take a position on it in the coming campaign. It may well be one of the three bic issues. (Copy: :^l:t.. li)3:. NEA ScrvU'e, Inc.I sion various sums aggregating 135,000 marks, including a credit of $3,100 in the Buffalo, N.

Tri-motor Plane Crashes Near Louisiana Herder In Texas. Gilmer, Texas, Aug. 15 (ff>)— Four persons were burned to death today \vhen a Delta airlines trl-motor monoplane crashed about 12 miles west of Gilmer and went up to flames. The dead: Andy Dixon of Monroe, La., pilot. Herbert Buckley, Dallas, co-pilot. J. W. Thompson, Atlanta, passen- £er. P. A. Ivy, Birmingham, Ala., pas- The bodies, burned beyond recognition, were pulled from the ship by Guy Wheldon and Herbert Mc- Wlwrtcr. farmers who heard the plane circle over McWhorter's cotton field shortly before the smashup. Weldon said he heard the roar of the motor and looked up to see the plane drop several fiares. It circled over the level cotton patch as if to land, and then crashed at about a 20-dcgrpp angle with a laud explosion. Weldon and McWhorter raced to the scene, but were unable to approach the blazing ship. The two farmers attempted to kill the fire with sand, but were forced to wait until the flames had subsided sufficiently to allow them to pull the charred bodies from the wreckage. Some mail from the passengor- mail plane, which left Dallas last night for Atlanta, was retrieved before being burned, but much of the cargo was lost. The cause of the accident was not learned immediately. Officials of the airline: Charles A. Rowe, superintendent of the United States department of commerce in Dallas, and Alva Sole, superintendent of air mails at Port Worth, went to the scene to investigate. Gilmer is in East Texas, near the Louisiana border. NEW FALL LEVY HIKE IS PROTESTED (Continued Irom P»f« OB*) levy went into the general fund oí high schools. "The money," Mr. Evans said, "went for other purposes than for teachers' salaries. A poor outlook ior a crop creates an emergency in Lyon county. The Barnes law should be cut down in line with the emergency." Would Contribute to Lawsuit. Mr. Evans recommended to the county commissioners they should not levy in excess of the amount provided in the 1934 budget or that they pass the item to the county superintendent, who, according to the law, shall certify the levy with the county clerk 11 the county commissioners do not. Mr. Evans volunteered to make a contribution for attorneys' iees if the county commission would fight the Barnes law. "T will have no trouble in paying my taxes," Mr. Evans said, "but the delinquent tax list in Emporia shows that there are hundreds oí people who will not be able to bear the increased burden." Commissioner O'Connell cited the provisions ol the Barnes law and advised Mr. Evans to -work ior a change In the law as a way for relief. Commissioner Reece Richards said that the county levy would be about the same as last year if it were not for the Barnes levy. To the suggestion that the county commissioners should revolt against making a levy of $1,200 for every high school teacher, Commissioner O'Connell replied, "We have quite a little excitement'around the courthouse now." It was also pointed out that Emporia schools got the lion's share of the Barnes fund. It is distributed on the basis of average daily enrollment in high school rather than the number of teachers in each high school in the county. When the county commissioners neglected to levy the full amount possible for the Barnes school last year, the Emporia city schools are said to have run $19,000 short in the general fund. Deadline Is August 25. The county commissioners had reported no action on approving or modifying the proposed budget late today. They are required to certify the adopted budget to the county clerk by August 25. The proposed new levy of 6.54 mills, which is 1 mill higher than last year, may have to be- increased if the Barnes levy of $91,400 should stand. A reduction in valuation of the property of the Katy railrond may force a slightly higher levy. The five persons who attended the budget hearing were John Morris, T. R. Evans, George Robinson, a city assessor, and Fred Fowler, former county commissioner. OTHERS TAKE NOTE. Wilmington, Del. (£>)•—Harry B. Eaton tried tin pans, searchlights and other devices to rid his home of starlings. The birds laughed at them, even as they have done at government scientists and many a city administration. Then Eaton put an owl, solemn but stuffed, on a stick in his front yard. The starlings have flown. ECONOMIC EXPERT KILLED. Giessen, Germany, Aug. 15 (/P)— Sir Basil Phlllott Blackett, British authority on gold and economic problems, was fatally injured today in an automobile-tram crash 10 miles from here. Sir Basil's automobile was struck by a train on a grade crossing this morning.

The girl, who lives in the country, is another- infantile paralysis victim. Two paralysis victims, both girls, now have free use of the pool. A truck driven by W. A. Harris, of Salina, was damaged at 8:40 o'clock this morning at Sixth and Commercial as a result of a collision. Mrs. Pete Smith, of Plymouth, who was driving a Chrysler sedan, started to pass another car ahead of her, the police reported. At the same time, Harris, who was in a truck behind the Smith car, started to turn out to pass the Smith car. The two vehicles collided and the front bumper of the Smith car hooked the right rear fender of the truck. MANY JOBS AT NORMAL proposed Repair* to WooJd Cott »2Í,«H.

One of the really different and good films is "Sanders of the River," (Granada Wednesday and tonight), with the two American colored stars, Paul Robeson and Nina Mae McKinney. The picture is British made and concerns the British African territories, so it may be taken as fairly authentic material. Leslie Banks Is "Sanders," British agent who rules the tribes in the river couniry, most of them by fear but one oi them by iove. w^th the aid of this one chief, "Bosambo," played by Robeson, "Sanders" settles the wars which slave traders have started during his absence and rescues "Bosambo" and his wife, the part played by Miss McKinney. The music and dances have individuality. Alexander Woolcott, in "While Rome Burns," tells of a 1-sentence letter he received from the newly triumphant Robeson. It said, "How'm I doin'?" After "Sanders of the River" there's only one answer— 'Okeydoke!" A Paramount pictorial and a "Betty Boop" cartoon are shown with the feature.—M. 8. T. — The Strand is showing "Silk Hat- Kid" Wednesday and tonight, with Lew Ayres and Mae Clarke holding the romantic leads and Paul Kelly carrying co-starring honor. Kelly has the part of the wealthy New York cafe owner who is persuaded to give liberally to a settlement house for its children summer camp. He is in love with Miss Cla.-ke. Ayres rescues Kelly from a thug and in payment is given a job at the camp, where he meets and falls In love with Kelly's girl. The ensuing scramble as to which one shall have the girl and who shall support the camp has several twists. Kelly and Ryres stage one fistfight that looks real.
