I hold a minority interest in 1 1. n ..i. :..i rf Bakersfield, young Hoover said. "I received a $4800 AAA pay ment under the cotton agreement. "In the first place I was complying with the law, and tickets for the sale of cotton could not be issued unless the ranch owners signed the agreement. "Although the owners did receive this AAA payment, they sus tained a loss of $25,000 as a result of unconstitutional acts under the AAA affecting other crops." Young Hoover also said he had received "two dollars, 50 cents and some mills" as his share of another AAA payment. "This was my share of a pay ment to the Kern County Land company," he explained. "This company got a $29,000 payment." Sheriff Lists Big Sale for Saturday Sheriff Shelton is today Linn county's leading real estate deal er.

The officers later learned that she had told her parents, Rev. and Mrs. O. D. Schuntz, ol the affair, whereupon botli parents went to the Follett home to interview the alleged assailant. As they questioned him, the sheriff said, Daniels seized a .25 calibre automatic pistol from counter adjacent to the telephone switchboard, pushed it against Rev. Rev. Schant.' eye, breaking his glasses, and attempted to shout. The gun tailed to lire, however, and Rev. bchantz took it away from from the boy. Meanwhile, Sheriff Shelton said, Mis. Follett had entered the room and fainted. The boy ran into an- otner room, secured a pan of water and dashed it into her face. Meanwhile, according to the youth's story, Rev. and Mrs-Schantz had left. Thereupon he ran to his bedroom upstairs, secured a .22 calibre rifle and started in pursuit of them. He tired several shots at them, he said, but they were ineffective. Returning to the house Daniels called Dr. Ralph Herron, Brownsville, to care tor Mrs. Follett, and also called the sheriff. He gave himself up without icsistance, Sheriff Shelton said. The juvenile court will await action until Mrs. Follett appears. The boy's parents, Mr. and Mis. E. V.

An au topsy today disclosed that Mrs. Nancy Evans Titterton, 34-year- old author, was assaulted crimin ally before she was strangled to death and her almost nude body tossed into the bathtub in her ipurtment in the ultrafashionable Beekman Place section. This finding by medical exami ners intensifod the unxiety of many prominent persons who live in tiie neighborhood. Several were eported to have arranged for per sonal guards. Clothing: Examined More than 2d detectives were assigned to the case, but they had developed no worthwhile clues to the identity of the intruder who gained entrance to the fourth tloor apartment some time yester day morning, tussled with Mrs. ruierlon in the bedroom and later knotted her pajamas ubout her throat. Police resorted to all possible scientific resources in their search for some tangible clue. In their research laboratory, . chemicals were applied to Mrs. Tilterton's torn clothing in an effort to bring out latent lingerprints by a new process. Mystery Man Seen A fountain pen, said to belong to Tllterton,-an executive of the National Broudcasting company, and found on Mrs. Tilterton's bed, also was studied for fingerprints. Only a block from the Titterton home is the apartment building in which Vera Stretz shot and killed Dr .Fritz B. Gebhardt, eminent German industrialist. Nearby live Kathcrine Cornell, actress, John D- Rockefeller, 3rd, and many other prominent residents ot the east side colony. One interesting bit of information came from the Countess Alice lloyos, who lives in the same building as the Titertons, who said that a young man of about 22 knocked on her door about a week ago and mumbled that he-was looking for someone. He seemed anxious to hide his face. LEBANON BAND IS GRANTED RATING OF "EXCELLENT" Corvallis, Ore., April 11.

Commenting upon the committee's action today, J. C.

It left only $1,789,000 for the work, but tacked on many new rivers and harbors projects.

From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond "Dictator Assumes Townsend Throne" The Townsendites, like any group, when they were ORGANIZED, could wield a power in poli tics that could not be DESPIS- ED but, when the heads beaan1 to quarrel, a split began to SHOW; and splits, in organizations, have a tendency t o GROW. So they have a "dictipator," a s Andrew Brown would SAY. and he'll straighten out the trouble, in his dictatorial WAY, and the Townsend Old Age Pension will present a solid 1 FRONT, if everyone agrees with him: but, of course, we know they WONT.

Dnn J Kcllaher, Portland, ex-state parole officer, stood indicted by the Marion county grand jury today as an "officer agreeing to receive a bribe" of $50,000 to free L. A. Banks, Medford murderer, from the state penitentiary. W. L. Gosslin, private secretary to Governor Martin, was cleared of charges that he allegedly violated the corrupt practices act in paying filing fees for six democratic candidates for the state leg islature. Gosslin said he was "pleased but not surprised" that the grand jury refused to indict him on the charges laid before District Attor ney W. II. Tnndle by Herman E. Lafky, Salem attorney and republican candidate fur Marion county prosecutor. The grand jury found each payment by Gosslin merely an advance made at the candidate's requl'-it. Lalky raised the cry of "whitewash" when he learned of the grand jury's action. "In the court of public opinion, however," Lafky said. "Mr. Gosslin is morally guilty of fla grant violation of the law, if not in the precise technical terminol ogy as interpreted to the grand jury by the district attorney." Trindle "deliberately intended that there should be a whitewash oc the Gosslin incident," Lafky charged. Kcllaher s case has been before the grand jury for eight months and investigation of men rtleased from the state penitentiary during the former parole officer's term has not yet been completed, Trin dle said.
