START; UNDETERMINED Washington 1 , May 8.—Slicing Off a $2,000,000,000 chunk from the $4,000,000,000 work relief fund, President Roosevelt's works allotment board yesterday segregated It for use on eight general types of projects. Without giving any "go ahead" signal for actual spending of the huge fund—since n'o specific pro. Jects were approved at its initial meeting—the board drew the first broad general plan under which It will operate. Specification immediately was aroused by the fact that the works fund had been cut directly . in two, and only half of it earmarked. How long the second half will be withheld from earmarking, whether for months or a year, or merely until the spending picture becomes more clearly defined, officials declined to explain. In a stiffly formal statement, describing the board meeting attended by President Roosevelt, it was announced that funds had been segregated for the following uses: * Non - Federal, self - liquidating projects of states and communities, $450,000,000. Highways, streets and gratie crossing elimination, $400,000,000.

Asbury Strole is a great-uncle of F. A. Callahan of Tipton, and Mr. Callahan's first knowledge o the affair was received from the newspapers. The first story of tha robbery stated the 'bandits had also taken $5,000 in registered government bonds, but later these were found among the debris, left by the bandits who thoroughly ransacked the house after binding and gagging members of the family. In the home at the time of the visit of the bandits about 8:00 o'clock Saturday night, were the aged farmer and his wife, their son, Oscar Strole, age 45, and their daughter. Miss Alice Strole, age 33. The bandits set fire to the aged farmer's beard, an'd threatened him with death if he did not reveal the hiding place ot more money they asserted was in the house after they had found the $250. He finally convinced them there was no more. When the son Oscar Strole, who was bound and gagged, struggled to get free to aid his father while they were torturing the aged man, the bandits kicked him In- the stomach and beat him over the headiand face. When the bandits-first appeared at the home, they informed Mr. Strole they, were in search of a prisoner who had escaped from the Crown Point jail. In the loot obtained by the bandits were several of the larger si^e bills, which may be the means of locating the fiends. Mr. Callahan had not seen his uncle for some time and may drive to his home in Newton county to ascertain his exact condition and that of his cousin, Oscar Strole. Mrs. Asbury Strole and daughter were not molested by the bandits, although both were badly affected by the shock of the terrible experience. The Strole home is about 3% miles south of the town of Brook in Newton county. Fun! Frolic!

It becomes the duty of the trustee to turn the list over to the prosecuting attorney. That official under the law is required to file affidavits against those who have not paid dog taxes. The assessors report that dog taxes in the rural districts are paid better than in towns and cities. Dallas Luttrell, assessor of Cicero township, estimated there are 100 dogs in the city of Tipton on which the taxes are unpaid at this time and parties owing the tax are asked to see him before his report is required to be turned over to the trustee. The assessing period closes May 15 following which Judge Russell will name new members of the county board of review to go over the list and make any corrections necessary and to make equalizations of assessments before it is forwarded to the state tax board.

PRESIDENT IS, DEFIED Washington, May 8.—In direct defiance of [expressed white house wishes, senate backers of the Patman bill yesterday smashed swiftly and successfully through three loll call votes to complete congressional action on the proposal to pay the; bonus with §2.201,934,000 in (new currency. The final! vote for the inflationary measure was 55 to 33. Despite the last-minute threat of a motion: to reconsider, leaders predicted the bill would move toward the wjhite house today. • The ballot, which sent through unaltered the house-approved bill, bus fell short of the two-thirds necessary to override a presidential veto, i Leaders , who had hreatened that the bill would Washington. May S. — Sena- or VanNuys, in voting first for the Vinson bill and then the Patman greenback bonus bill, was keeping a campaign promise. He said last night he preferred the Vmson bill, leaving it to the president to decide how it should be paid, but that when it feated he turned to the Patman bill, not because it is inflationary, but because it bore the name of bonus. The fact that both Indiana senators, regarded as conservatives, voted for the Patman bill,' caused a shock to many of their admirers: There was a special surprise that Senator Minton, regarded as more conservative than VanNuys, became a follower of Finly Gray, Patman and other inflationists. TSITnton, in his successful cam- liaign against former Senator Robinson, was careful about his bonus promises. He didn't seek election as a "soldier" candidate. He maintained that there was uo reason why the government should make an advance bonus payment to the ex-service who is able-bodied and employed. Senator Minton, however, is likely to stand by the president when the veto, certaiiTto come, is presented. VanNuys would ' not say what he would do in relation to the promised presidential veto. : * ' • WEATHER—Mostly cloudy tonight and Thursday; some probability of showers; warmer south and east portions tonight; cooler u.i north and central portions on Thursday. • HOG PRICES DOWX.
