Washington, May 18. — Senate Democrats, tired of being special p other record for two-man cars by averaging 122 miles an hour for one of his ten qualifying laps. Petillo and at least three other fast drivers intend to try for th2 No. 1 spot in the starting lineup this year. To win the honor aa average of 20 miles'an hour will be necessary, it is predicted. Others ready to- make the trial runs include "Wild Bill" Cummings of Indianapolis, last year's race winner; Louis Meyer, Huntington Park, Cal., winner in 192S. and 1933; Mauri Rose, Dayton, O., second place winner last year; Fred Frame of Los Angeles, winner in 1932, and Al Gordon and Rex 'Mays, former Pacific' coast champions. Rose, piloting the only four- wheel drive car in the race; Gordon, Mays and possibly Frank Brisko of Milwaukee, are considered the best possibilities to fight it out with Petillo for the pole position. Brisko is driving the car Petillo used last year. The Milwaukee pilot had the four-wheel drive in 1934, finishing in ninth place. Cummings, using the same front, wheel drive Miller in which he raced to victory last year, is expected to content himself with a quent attacks on the new. deal, await a favorable opportunity to "crack down" on the kingfish's share-the-wealth program.

Long has promised that under his program every man will be- a "king," no one will be allowed to possess more than between ?!,500,000 and 13,000,000, and the country will be free of droughts, floods and deserts.

Washington, May 18. — Refusing to give up any of their "'gravy,' house members yesterday shouted down proposals to eliminate congressional mileage allowances and to forbid nepotism. The action came as the house was completing work on the $20,355,870 legislative appropriation bill, last of the regular appropriations measures. Rep. John' R. Mitchell, D., Tenn., moved to strike out of the bill an item of $175,000 to pay expenses of house and senate members to and from Washington. They are paid at the rate of 15 cents a mile. There was a roaring chorus of "No" from both parties when the motion' was "put. Mitchell then moved to outlaw nepotism — the practice of many congressmen In hiring members of their own families to work in their offices at government expense. "I feel sure in these troubled times of unemployment, a member should be satisfied with his salary without placing other relatives on the payroll," Mitchell said. But the house thought otherwise, by a majority of 82 to 18. limited, his mental movements swift and undisciplined, but for some time he is likely to remain an important voice In the readjustment of America.

CONIDTION IS TRAGIC I (By United Press>. • ChicagoV- May 18. — Starvation and thQ threat of eviction from homes confronted more than 100,000 persons today in the crowded Chicago; area where relief activities were suspended yesterday. Cook 1 county officials said they were powerless to aid 30,000 families who received their last relief groceries 30 days ago, or an additional 75,000 families whose monthly supplies will be due Monday] A county emergency fund of $2,400,000 derived from sale of bonds vJhen federal and state relief money was withheld May 1 was exhausted yesterday. It sufficed to; buy groceries for one week only half the 12,000 families who already had used the last scrap of food furnished by the Illinois emergency relief commission In April. Officers of the relief commission, which canceled its regular w e e k liy meeting because it "hadn't ;a penny to spend," said conditions in some downstato counties! were "tragic." Several bankrupt counties of the coal mining regions have four-fifths of their scanty populations on relief rolls. Private charitable organizations Were swamped by demands for the most meager necessities of; life. Fear was freely expressed that cessation of relief activity in the teeming Chicago area, where almost 500,000 persons are dependent on charity for food, rent and medical attention, might bring disorders if long continued. The problem pf. county authorities was intensified by closing of shelters for 40,000 transients, both men and women. Residents will be permitted to sleep in the shelters for a time but food was exhausted today. !

Wool, 'England, May 18.—Fantastic rumors, all declared to be without foundation, flourished today about Col. T. E. Lawrence— Lawrence of Arabia—who is still unconscious five days after a motorcycle accident in which he suffered a fractured skull. The rumors included: That the man in the hospital here was not Lawrence.who actually is on secret service duty in the east. That Great Britain would be im~ periled if he died, because in his brain alone was stored British war plans. This, it was said, was the reason war office officials and high members of the government were concerned lest he died. That Lawrence recently went to Berlin, and after his return requested police protection. That King George personally telephoned the hospital frequently to ask anxiously about Lawrence's condition. Lawrence's-condition was still unchanged today. There was little apparent mystery about his accident. He was going at racing speed on his .motorcycle Monday. He swerved to avoid striking Albert Hargreave, 15- He saved the boy, but was himself catapulted 100 feet. STREAM POLLUTION BOARD. Two Members of This Xew Apparently Picked. Body (By Unltfil Press).

The only witness to the murder is a beautiful young society girl, who swears she heard nothing but the sound of the shot and saw nothing but the dead man slump in his chair with his hands still on the keyboard. Not until the notorious detective, "Mr. Dynamite?' entered the case was any light { shed on this baffling mystery that kept the police department of j a great city awake for many nights. And the manner and method] in which Dynamite solves the murder provides one of the most thrillin exciting and amusing films that has been seen in a long while. The original story was written by Dashiell Hammett, whoss "Thin Man" thrilled many mil- nesday. Gov. Henry Homer will make his^ fifth attempt on one of those days to push through the balky house of representatives a bill increasing the 2 per cent state sales tax j to 3 per cent.

Indianapolis, May IS. — Rex Mays, leading Pacific coast race driver, has as good as the proverbial Chinaman's chance in the 50 mile race here May 30. In fact. Rex has a Japanese riding mechanic which gives him Japanese chance for a shot at big money on Decoration Day at the Indinapolis Motor Speedway. His little almond-eyed companion is Tak Hirashima, California-born Japanese youngster of 23, who is on his first journey beyond tho confines of California, seeing at least a part of Indiana from a windy seat in a speeding race car. He is not a novice, at that, for he has ridden with Rex's arch rival, Kelly Petillo at Ascot in Los Angeles in a championship race. Although Tak says he is getting a big kick out of his adventure and hopes to see "all there is to see in the East before I go back home." Tak has been fiddling around with race cars and race drivers ever since he graduated from high school in Glendale, Cal. At first, he said, his Nippon-born parents objected strenuously, feeling it was hardly the kind of calling a President of Lithuania Com- mutes'Sentences of the ; Condemned Men. ALL GET LIFE TERMS (By United Press). Kovno, Lithuania, May IS. — President Antanas Smetona today commuted death sentences against four Nazis of .Meme! to life imprisonment. They were convicted of murder in connection with a separatist plot. The men were convicted by court martial of the murder of a Nazi whom they suspected of betraying plans for a plot to separate Memel territory from Lithuania. \ President Smetona's decision was calculated to avert angry demonstrations in Germany and serious embitterment of feeling by Germans regarding conditions in .Memel territory. Besides the men sentenced to death, S3 Nazis had been con- .victed of high treason in connection with the plot and received sentences ranging 'from five years to life imprisonment. The four men condemned to death had refused to appeal for pardons, asserting their innocence. Their lawyers appealed to Smetona. The president, however, acted spontaneously even before he received the lawyers' appeal. Per One-Fourth Pint BLUE FRONT.
