16 OAKLAND TRIBUNE, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 301934 1 I III AHMS UNDER hew i. s. u Few Individuals in State Possess Machine Guns Chief of Bureau Declares ' . SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30.-Cal ifornia is apparently unusualy free from the menace of machine-guns In the possession of individuals, ' ' Chief T. J. Church of the miscel laneous tax division of the Internal Revenue Department here declared today, in comment on the new Fed eral Registration of Firearms law. i, j The law provides that every per ' ' son. comoration or agency, includ- '' ' lng peace oftteeTs, must register the automatic fire-arms in tneir posses ' sion on July 26. Revolvers and au tomatjc pistols which shoot one shot at a time are exempt from tne reg- istratifcn NEW TAX IS HIGH. "While we were rather surprised at the. number of machine guns and sawed-off shotguns brought in for registration by mining companies, laree cornoratlons, and various other concerns, we have found only a very few such firearms owned by Individuals." Church said. One reason for their scarcity, he pointed out, Is the new law imposing a $500 tax on the manufacturer of the machine gun, and a $200 tax Imposed on the dealer. . "We found one dealer who ordered a machinegun for a customer. The customer .. didn't take the gun off, his hands, and the dealer, has to pay- the 4ax- now,'' Church' said. "CTJKIO" GUNS INCLUDED. ' "Severaf .persons , misinterpreted 1 the' law,-and have brought in their pistols and revolvers. "Only the automatic pistol of the type which fires all -its shots when -the trigger " Its pressed down are to be regis-' tered," Church pointed out. Even "curio" guns, he said, must be registered. One San Franciscan brought his collection of, more than 40 guns, picked up In various parts of the world, according to Church. . ' Of these, only three would shoot, nd were registered. i ' i Only army and navy firearms need not be" registered, Church declared, since the guns In use 'by these branches of the government are all registered through the ordnance de- : partments. w. - . . i . j, ...

NORTH BROOKFIELD, Mass, Oct. 30. UP, George M. Cohan, has added Main street to his conquests. "The man who owns Broadway" came home last night to play before perhaps the most appreciative audience he ever has faced. It took but a nod of his head, a smile, the mere lifting of an eyebrow, to bring down the house. Hand clapping was inadequate. There were 550-odd packed into the 70-year-old town hall, and outside, in a cold, biting wind, a thousand more heard "Georgie" through amplifiers. It was the fulfillment of a promise Cohan made himself a long time ago. He hac1 said that some day he would "gc back home" and put on a show for "the folks." So it was that Cohan came with Eugene O'Neill's "Ah Wilderness" and sixteen members of the com& pany. The play witnessed by those lucky enough to obtain seats tickets sold out in 15 minutes was the strangest North Brookfield has seen. Without costumes, without scenery, without make-up even minus many of its most important atmospheric props the company gave a performance that held indoor and outdoor audirnces enthralled for two hours. It was in North Brookfield that he spent his Summers while a boy and it was here that he wrote hir, first experimental play "Fifty Miles from Boston" and his first song hit, "Venus, My Shining Star."
