B. Weedon home near Hugoton, Kan. They had wandered out to search for arrowheads. The dust cloud came up and the children, a 10-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister, were lost until they reached the Cimarron river where they fell exhausted. Weather observers learned something new yesterday. Heretofore they had assumed that rain would exorcise the dust devils and bring relief. They learned instead that dust drives out rain. General rain conditions were reported for eastern Kansas and western .Missouri. What precipitation occurred was brief and Ineffectual: The dust rolled on.

Rain falling through the dust-filled atmosphere left reddish splotches on pavements and the sides of 'buildings. Snow bringing up the rear of the dust storm at Goodland, in northwestern Kansas, fell in muddy flakes which Nebraska farmers had termed "snust." Destruction of crops is not the only result. Livestock famished for grass and water died in barren pastures. Human beings became lost in the dust and died.

Most likely I could have been distributor for something else if I had been so ^inclined.

In these past few years people have learned the real meaning of economy. With this emphasis on economy, greater emphasis has been placed on the value of the Ford V-8. So, conscious of this desire for all*ronnd economy, today I am still further impressed with the fact that the Ford V- 8 is the best car for my friends. As to performance, the car speaks for itself.

"He will be home bjf Saturday or Sunday—possibly tomorrow.'/ Police feared the ransom demand was the work of a petty racketeer or crank, but halted activities at Perrot's request.

(By United Press). Indianapolis, April II. — Proposed changes in the playing schedule of the state basketball tournament finals will -be discussed by principals of member schools of the Indiana High School Athletic Association at 16 sectional meetings tonight. The discussions will climax agitation against the present two- day system which requires that the champion and runner-up play three games on the last day of the finals. Meetings witl be held at Crown Point, Lafayette, LaPorte, Warsaw, Fort Wayne, Crawfordsville, Kokomo, Indianapolis, Muncie, Richmond, Milan, Seymour, Salem, Sullivan, Boonville and Washington. Discussion is expected to center on three proposals. They are: 1. Start the state finals Thursday morning, playing one round Thursday, another Friday and the semi-finals and ITnals Saturday afternoon and evening. 2. Set up four district tournaments in the state in which 15 regional winners will compete for two days; The four winners tlusn would come to Indianapolis for the semi-finals and finals on the following Saturday. "3. Eliminate down to eight teams the field that would compete here in the two-day finals. Anolher more drastic change, the elimination of the stale tournament play, has been suggested by others, and the move is reported to have gained favor with a few officials. Recommendations drawn up in the sectional meetings tonighl will be forwarded to the board of control, which has promised action in solving the most imporlaiit problem of the association's "a year history. Commissioner Arthur L. Tred- ter, whose administration has been attacked as the fight against the tournament system progressed, has said: "It is up to the board of control and principals of the schools whfch are members of the association. I only carry out the wishes of ihe board. If the school officials believe too many games are played in the finals under the present two-day system, .they can change it." Several outslanding developments have enlivened the newest fight against tlie two-day finals. The north central -conference was reported to have threatened to withdraw from the state association if the playing schedule was not changed. The conference has furnished six of the last eight state -champions, including Anderson, 1935 tille winner. Laler, however, the conference, by a reported vote of 5 to 4, up- tteld the present playing system and the administration of Commissioner Trester. The Northern Indiana Conference, which Includes two divisions of eight teams each, is on record as opposing the present system and favoring one which would reduce the finals field to eight teams. The Southern Indiana Conference also has passed resolutions asking for a change in the tournament system. Legislative thrusts against the tournament were made i by Rep. Carl E. M. Woodard, D.,; Michigan City, who introduced a biffin the state i legislature j wKTch would limit nigh school basIceUJall players to two games a- <|ay. The measure "died in committee.

V (By United Press). _ Washington, April 11. — me new deal's social security pro gram aids to banish by 1940 the fear of needy aged American citizens that they may have to go over the hill to the pporhouse,' The '20,000,000 Americans al preaching or over 65 would be assured, five years hence, of a bare subsistence pension undei the bill approaching house action Thousands of persons who ii recent years have used part o their wages to support aged rela lives would be eased from lha burden. _ ; The bill places the aged in two categories. Those who are. now destilute and over 70 would com under state federal aid plans as suring them of $30 a month o nearly thai. Persons not yet 65 and s'till working, would pay .a federal tax guaranteeing them a pension when they relire. Under the needy old age pen sion provision, states setting u; suitable laws would receive be ginning next July 1, an amoun from the federal governmen matching the amount they guar antee lo the aged. This is expr-ft ed to cost the federal governmen $49,000,000 in. the next fisca year. Until Jan. 1, 1940. the slales would nol be required to give aid lo persons under 70 Afler lhal, all needy over 65 mual be guaranleed miqimtim security Probably Ihe most importan section of Ihe bill, however, is that calling for contributions from most employed persons under 65 earning $3,000 or. less a year. This section establishes a contributory old age benefit-system under the federal government, with benefits at G5 contingent on the amount of forced contribulions. The lax under this provision starls at Iwo per cenl, equally divided belween employer and em- ploye, on January 1, 1937. It rises .to six per cent 13 years later. From the fund -created, amounting by the end of 1937 to $622,000,000, benefits would be guaranteed amounting In at least $15 a month, irrespective of the amount contribnled. For example, a man of G4 with a $2,500 salary, conlribuling one per cent of it in 1937, would bo given a minimum of ?15 a monlh benefil. In addition, if he has no other resources he would come under slale "needy" laws. A man of 55, being paid $1,200 a year, if he -conlribuled for JO years, would be assured $20 a monlh when 65. A man of 40, wilh an average yearly wage of $1,200 would receive S35 a month. A youth of 20, with an average yearly wage of $1,200, would receive S55 a month when 65. Administration officials Tiave estimated that 20,000,000 .persons in Ihe next few years will be affected. Exempt from the contributory provision, however,, are 7,000,000 domestics, transient laborers and casual laborers. They would have to be cared for under stale needy aged laws. The federal government's offer to match funds with states, as redrafted in the bill, forces stales lo assure minimum benefits to all persons who have lived fiviTyears in the stale. : *»»» — GOT RESULTS. 12 and 13 Sample Can of !
