Wil liam E. Borah's drive toward re publican presidential nomination encounters its first real test tomor row in the Illinois primary in which voters will choose between the veteran progressive and Frank Knox, Chicago publisher. Borah's name, unopposed, also will be be fore Nebraska voters tomorrow. There is no clear choise in Illin ois between liberal and conserva tive policies. Both Borah and Knox are advanced as progressives the senator by virtue of long insur- gency against old guard party leadership and Knox in the role of o Bull Moose progressive disci- pie or ineodore Roosevelt.

SULLIEEDED Report of Work Serves as Answer to Critics of WPA Setup 20 MILLION GET AID Figure Shows Employment Virtually Same as Last Year Washington, April1 13 Works Progress Administrator Harry L. Hopkins today tossed into the political controversy raging' around 1 1 is $4,000,000,000 work-relief program a sharp warning that "relief remains the most urgent social-economic problem confronting the nation." Foreseeing continued govern- ment relief for years to come, Hopkins unexpectedly released a voluminous report on WPA skillfully timed to meet congressional consideration of the new deal request for $1,500,000,000 to finance employment for 12 months after July 1, and answer critics. The report also-coincided with spreading charges of- graft and political corruption in WPA state administrations and demands for a congressional inquiry. Johnson Charges Waste "Government aid will be necessary as long as prolonged unemployment persists," Hopkins said. "This problem is intimately connected with employment opportunities in private industry." The work-relief summary came almost immediately alter Gen. i Hugh S. Johnson, former WPA di- rector for New York City, was ; revealed, as declaring "halt of all j this (the WFA) is prodigal pretense justilied by -iiothmh." iv " The one-time NHA administrator said "60 per cent" of the projects so staunchly delendcd by Hopkins were "wasteful." Johnson made the statements in a report given Hopkins lust Oct. 15, but completely buried by WPA uiuil last week. Accusations Ignored In addition, both democrats and republicans had assailed V PA in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Michigan lor charges ranging from maladministration to partisan politics. . Hopkins' report disregarded mention of most of the accusations, limiting itself to a factual summary ol the current work- j relief program. It listed these ac- complishments: 1- A total of 3,853,000 persons ' working Feb. 25; the former dole ended, "forestalling the degenera- tion that may develop through enforcing idleness." At the same time, however, it was figured 20,- j OuO.UHU persons now are on public relief,' the same number as when the program started last April. 2. WPA expenditures fur materials totalling $40,042,303 to Dec. 31, including $24,375,245 for construction materials exclusive .if steel and $U,600,332 for iron and steel. 3. A total of $170,884,468 earned by 3,000,000 WPA workers lor 371.551,503 hours of labor. 4. Political sub-divisiuns, which originated and applied for all program projects, augmented the S4,-000,000,000 fund by about $500,-000,000 in contributions and government loans. 3 BALLOT TITLES WRITTEN MONDAY; PETITIONS START Salem, Ore., April 13. Three ballot titles were written today by Attorney-General Van Winkle, so circulation of initiative petitions which must be completed July I, can start. Constitutional amendments prohibiting food taxes of any kind and creating a non-political state game commission and state board of forestry were two of the measures. The third was the non-compulsory military training bill for state institutions of higher education. Under the game commission amendment, all game funds would be deposited with the state treasurer to be spent only for promotion, protection, propagation and preservation of fish and game. The anti-food tax amendment is aimed primarily at any attempt to levy a sales lax. already defeated three times at the polls. Pedestrian Critically O Injured on Highway Salem. Ore., April 13. Ira C.

Police scientists reached that conclusion through on inch-by-inch examination of the four-room Titterton apartment which proved indisputably that there had been no struggle except in the bedroom, where the victim was criminally attacked and killed, and in the bathroom, where her body had been dumped face down in the tub.

Washington, April 13. Further evidence of discord in the house old age pension investigation came to light today when Chairman C. Jasper Bell, D Mo., appointed Rep. Clare E. Hoffman, R-. Mich., to inquire into the Townsend plan in Michigan. Hoffman told reporters that he had no intention of going to Michigan now because "I have too many other things to do."

Townsend. , MACCABEES TO MEET The adult Maccabees will meet Tuesday night at 0 o'clock. A free dance for members and friends is to follow the session. From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond "They Work the City Dump" Every city has a field that's called the dumping ground, where rubbish wagons haul their loads and spread them all around; old window frames, without the panes, that have no further use; the old stone jug and worn-out rug, that's had loo much abuse; the rags and bags and clocks and i crocks, that have ' been thrown awav. and refuse. of all descriptions, is hauled there every day. It is a mess to bring distress to any ordered mind, but some can look the rubbish o'er and values in it find. They salvage strings and bags and things, to which we give no thought. The empty flasks and oak-wood casks, by someone will be bought. Man can be found, to work the mound, who ask no other wage, than things they find, of every kind and of uncertain age. Ttwy ; will refine, with fire and lime, the, stuff they can't reclaim, so that the smell shall not repel, and bring the city shame. And k they work J the city dump and do it fae by I day and make an honest lig of the things we throw away. I IP PROBERS SI DISCORD mi. Condon declined in the follow- Harrisburg.

Alert, young eyes followed the upy scouts wno scattered the bags through the shrubbery shortly before 2 o'clock. Things started with a rush in the park as the striking of the court house clock signalled the start of the hunt, for the larger children. Children under six, hunting about the courthouse, were slower to start but soon had their hands filled with plunder. Many. or tne locmicrs seized upon a sacK and then gleefully hurried back to where parents were waiting. Many did their hunting under the guiding hand of parents or older brothers and sisters. While a num-of children continued the hunt for some time, the principal activity was over in less than 10 minutes., B. F. Kendall was chairman of the affair. Roosevelt Campaign .

The slate prison parole board will leave the release of Earl H. Fehl, ex-Jackson county judge, up to Governor Martin, Secretary W. L. Gosslin said today. Martin is expected to return here late tomorrow from an Easter holiday in Bremerton, Wash. On Wednesday, Fehl will have served the maximum of a four-year sentence with allowance of time for good behavior. Penitentiary officials would have set Fehl free without ques- tion, but Attorney-General Van winkle ruled a parole from the governor was needed first, upsetting a practice in effect at the prison for the last 13 years. If Governor Martin paroles Fehl. it was believed the release would be op the condition that Fehl stay away from Jackson county. A new "oiie-ntnn committee" to investigate phases ot the Town-send Plan operation, Representative Joseph A. Gavngan (Dem N. Y.) is shown here as he left Washington for California. Gavngan wob detailed to take depositions dOBlred by the HouBe committee probing the" movement nnd trace new angles said to have bocn revealed by tlio Washington Inquiry. London, April 13. Bitterness and suspicion spread through western Europe today, to open un-auspiciously an Easter week of negotiations which a few hoped would lead to beneficial results and many feared might lead to tragic ones. The week's time table 'was elo quent of the importance of im pending events: Tomorrow Salvador de Mada-riaga of Spain, in behalf of the league council ' committee of 13, confers at Geneva with Italian and Ethiopian delegates to see whether they will agree to peace on terms acceptable to the league. Reports from Geneva were tht de Madaringa might postpone to morrow s talks until Wednesday on tile ground that the Italians have not luid time to select their representatives. Wednesday Representatives of the French, Belgian and British general staffs meet here to discuss plans for mutual air, sea and land defense in event Germany attacks Fiance or Belgium pending a concrete plan for peace consolidation. Iluirsday Committee of 13 meets to hear Mariariuga's report on Italian and Ethiopian peace views. Unless Italy consents to a just peace, Great Britain intends to demand imposition of new penalties against Italy. Such a demand would bring at once, first, a French-British clash; second, a resurgence of anger in Italy so fierce as to bring immedi ate threat of war in the Mediterranean.
