BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHBABT ARKAN3A3 AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOLUME XXXVI—NO. 114. Blythevllle Courier Blythevllle Herald Mississippi Valley Lender Blythevlllo Dally News BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, WKDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1930 Says Lending Bill's Defeat Will Torce Roosevelt To Run WASHINGTON, .Aug. 2. (UP)—President Roosevelt's house leaders 1 asset] his 8800,000,000 housing proposal SINGI/R COPIES FIVR overboard today and started jovmiment. The action was revealed by Chairman Adolf J. Sabath (JJem., III.) veteran chairman of the liousc rules committee. He coupled Ills announcement with a bitter attack on tlie house majority which yesterday killed Mr. Roosevelt's lending program and he called for the president to run for a third term. The house vote of 193 to ICG lo kill the lending program "forces President Roosevelt to Income a candidate for a third term" Sabath declared. "The forces of reaction are drunk with power," he said angrily. "If the president does not become a candidate for a third term It means that all of the achievements of the last eight, years in behalf of the common num will lie killed as soon as the reactionaries can get in their work." Snbath's announcement meant that the adjournment rush was on in dead earnest and the fate of legislation still on the books was uncertain. There appeared to be some chance that house action would be had on the controversial wage hour act amendment's for which a rule has been reported by Sabath's committee. The house action in killing the lending program was hailed by Acting Republican Leader Warren R. Austin of the senate. He declared that "nothing has happened in a long time that will give so much encouragement lo private enterprise." Administration leaders were downcast. Senate Democratic Whip Sherman Million (Dem., Ind.) warned that business "will get into a tailspin if we don't watch out." New York Cotton NEW YORK.. Aug. 2.

Stock Prices NEW YORK, Aug. 2.—(UP) — Heavy buying came Into .utility Uses Home-Made Breathing Device To Save Babies IDABEL, Okla., Aug. 2.—Twin Ijoys, four months old, owed their lives today to a quick-thinking country doclor who rigged up an oxygen-breathing device from a fruit jar, four lengths of rubber tubing and a drum of ordinary «elder's oxygen. Tlie infanta are Charles ' and Larry Faulkner, born April 8. A few weeks ago they contracted whooping cough. Their condition did not become grave until the other day. Then their respiration nciirly stopped. The 29-year-old attending physician, Dr. George K. Fisher, sent out a burn/ call for oxygen to a nearby welding .shop, obtained an ordinary fruit jar from the mother, four lengths of rubber tubing from the father, Louis Faulkner, and telephoned his office for a stomach pump. By the time the drum of oxygen —9.50 jier cent pure—arrived, Dr. Fisher had most of his home-made apparatus ready. One tube was run through the cover to the bottom of the jar, which had been Riled with sterilized 'Water. Tlie others were led just through the top. Two were placed In the nostrils of the twins and the oxygen released through the water, so it could be measured. Once the infants' respiration was improved, Dr. Fisher fashioned a nose mask frcm the stomach pump and attached it to the remaining lube. ' Welder's oxygen -was the only oxygen within 75 miles. SPEuli MS re Special Taxes Will Paid In 1939 Than Ever Before LITTLE HOCK, Art., Aug. 5.— More special laxes will be pnlcl in 1039 Ihnn in any year of the state's history—because of an evident Improvement in business—Revenue Commissioner Z. M. McCnrroll said tc<lay. Increased collections from almost all sources, especially automobile license 'fees, probably will produce .$2(5,000,000 this calendar year, he forecast. That figure would compare to the $23,200,000 collected ill the fiscal year 19:11-1038, in which the largest collections In any 12-month period were made. Mr. McCairoll attributed the indicated increase to two factors other than better business. They arc: Lowering of the auto license fee schedule which, he said, lias tended to increase volume.

The court set aside an Injunction which Federal District Judge Thomas C. Trimble of Arkansas hnd granted R. C. Butler, receiver of the bridge company. The court held that In the bridge company's franchise there was a reservation which permitted the operation of a competing ferry. Tlie appellale court also acknowledged llic highway commission Imcl a gallon, or a total of $3.30 a case. "Tennessee's tax is only $2.10 a case," the revenue commissioner said. "It is evident that many eastern Arkansas residents are patronizing bcotleggers who evade the high Arkansas tax. "The same is true of the' cigarette tax. The public can have no idea of the number of wealthy, leading citizens who buy cigarettes out of the state to save the Arkansas Inx. If this bootlegging could be halted, the stale's revenue at three cents a pack would be Tenter than the present collections at five cents."

While the "navy" rode at anchor in the Pacific four miles off shore, marooning COO gamblers aboard the luxuriously-appointed square- rigger, an altorncy on shore received radio Instructions from the Rex and negotiated the "surrender." Tlie lawyer walked into the San-; la Monica police station, announced he represented the Rex's owner, Tony Cornero, prohibition er.i rum runner, and accepted service of a court order prohibiting lhe ship's gambling operations. With the swarthy Cornero striding her decks commanding a buck- croo crew and shouting defiance over the rail at boatloads of ot- fiecrs, lhe Rex had repulsed since late yesterday all attempts uy Warren and his officers to serve the order. i Warren's first attempt to board mile limit and Into the domain of lhe gambling fleet. . „, .

The suave Cornero ran to the deck, conferred with his skipper, George Klrkham, a retired naval officer who has seen service in Chinese waters, and quickly tlie crew of 350 husky, tough-looking seamen rigged the 53-year-old square rigger, a onetime British collier, for the defense. They dropped huge nets over starborftd and port sides, nets that could be maneuvered from the deck as a barrier against anyone seeking to board her. Fire hose were reeled out and made ready. As Warren's craft maneuvered alongside and several officers W- gan to assail the nets. Conii'ro bellowed through a megaphone:— "Stand off! We're beyond ttie three mile limll."

Several speed boats carried when Cornero unlimbercd his wc- hls deputies out beyond the thveelond line of defense—the powerful waterhosc whose streams caught the attackers,' tumbled them Ig- nomlnlously into the sea to be fetched out by their comrades. Other officers, attacking hi groups, met the same fate, sonic being helped to It by a seamen's rough straight-arm to the face. Warren's party heeled about, headed back for shore where Die altorttoy general quickly began mobilization of a stronger fleet. He commissioned it from members of the police and sheriff departments, and before rfa\vn It was on the high seas spoiling for a fight to the finish with the Rex. The climax of Warrens fight against the gambling armada, especially against the Rex, had been forecast for months. Cornero, who boasts that he became a prohibition era rum runner "to keep 120.- OCO.OOO people from being poisoned to death," has arrogantly challenged his every effort to decommission the- Rex. He has advertised Ills estab- tbe entertainment provided aboard his boat. 'Hie public has responded to an estimated 30,000 patrons a week. Thc Rex, commissioned the Kllll worth when launched In England 53 years ago, was reconstructed from stem to stern by Cornero at a cost of $250,000.

Warren and District Attorney Huron Fills began efforts to brmj a showdown In the controversy last Friday. Then they served no- lice on all four gambling ships lhal they sought abatement orders, claiming the same forms of gambling were conducted aboard them as were held Illegal on land. They threatened prosecution unless Uie ships ceased operating. All four ships ignored tho Ihreals. The restraining orders Issued by Judge Wilson would make llsliment extensively In newspapers closing ot the gambling games mandatory.
