Tipton Pastor Offers Arguments Against Sale by the Drink. : BEFORE CITY COUNCIL Sale of whisky by the drink in Tipton is a live issue as it is understood a petition will be presented to the city council next Wednesday asking the council to pass an ordinance that would permit licenses for sale by the drink to be issued by the state. The state law provides that in cities of under 5,000 population, the city council must pass an ordinance permitting sale of whisky by the drink before the state liquor commission can issue such licenses. If the city council does not act, such licenses can not be issued. Several weeks ago a petition was presented to the city council asking that the liquor ordinance not be passed. This petition was sponsored by several of the Tipton churches. The wets have prepared several petitions and these are being signed but just how numerous are the signers, is not known. In anticipation of an effort to be made by the wets to secure the liquor ordinance, Rev. John Ward Rose, pastor of the Kemp Methodist church, is leading a fight against the movement. Following he sets out arguments against the ordinance: Should whisky be sold by the drink? Let it first of all be remembered that Tipton county has for a number, of years registered its opinion as opposed to strong drink. The church membership recently voiced the same dry opin-. ion in a petition to the city council when they declared: "We are opposed to the sale of hard liquor in Tipton." Regardless of what action is taken by the city council, some drug stores will still sell' whisky by the package in our city.'Why Continued on Paee 2. FEDERAL TAX Emergency Unemployment Tax on Trades and Industry Suggested. PLAN BEING STUDIED Tax Would Be Based on the Number of Employes in Normal Period. Washington, June 8. — The taxing power of the government would he used to preserve purposes of the NRA under a plan studied today in administration circles. New deal lawyers have been developing the idea since the supreme court struck down the code structure two weeks ago. It is an outgrowth of modern theories of legislation put forward by liberal legal students. The plan proposes a bill to place an emergency unemployment tax on all t,rades and industries. The tax would be based on he ratio of employes on an employer's payroll to the number employed by him on a given date regarded as "normal." The theory back of the plan Is hat the government is forced to make unusual expenditures for .he relief of the unemployed and ;hat their former employers should help bear the burden. In his respect it resembles retroac- ive unemployment insurance while not subject to some of the objections which might be raised against such an act. Recent comment on decisions of the supreme court note that here has been little done toward imiting the federal power to tax and still less on the power to spend money. Federal expendi- ures were questioned early in the history of the country on the theory they would form the basis for an invasion of state power. The constitution gives the government the power to lay and collect taxes and to provide for the general welfare. The language m which" this was done has confused scholars, but as far as the court is concerned there has been little question of the power to tax. The supreme court frequently has held that the power to tax gives the power to control and. regulate as well as "the power to destroy." This latter phrase was revived only recently when the court upheld a state tax on oleo- margerlne so prohibitive as to drive dealers in the product out of the state. The purpose of the tax was to help dairy" farmers. As long as the tax is imposed for the purpose of raising money, the court has made no limitation on the congressional power. " It has, however, placed some limitation on the taxing power when it Is used for other purposes. Continued on Page 2.

DELEGATES SKf- TREK TO Vanguard From the Prairie!Wreckers Tumble Famous Stages Gather in Springfield for Convention. •AFTER" ROOSEVELT Springfield, 111., June 8.—The cry of "Save the Constitution" rumbled about the historic Lincoln shrine today as delegate.-? from the prairie states poured into tjbwn for the Republican "grass roots" convention. Strong sentiment was expressed by early arrivals toward "pinning full responsibility of broken Democratic promises squarely on the shoulders of President Roosevelt," Harris G. Spangler, of Iowa, chairman of the committee on arrangements, said. The gavel will fall on the conference Monday. The slogan,'"Save the Constitution," which is being plasten=.-l on billboards and on placards all over town, was the suggestion of E. F. Hahnenstein of Aurora, 111., in a letter to Justus Johnson, Republicaji state chairman who first conceived the idea of the grass roots roundup. Johnsori~said the battle cry was inspired by words of Abraham Lincoln in 1861. "After his arrival in Washington in; 1861," Johnson said, "Lincoln had a talk with delegates to a conference. He said 'If I shall ever come to the great office of president of the Untied States, I shall swear that I will faithfully execute the office and that I will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the constitution. The grass shall nut grow on the streets of our commercial cities.' "' As the'vanguard of 20,000 ar- West Tower of "Ride" in World's Fair. rived. was reserved.

Chicago, June S.— The west tower' of the Century of Progress sky-ride, an 1,800-toff skeleton'of steel and concrete, crashed to the ground at dawn today. Chunks of concrete as big as pianos hurtled through the air and bounded across the lakefront sands; of the abandoned world's .fair site. The roar of a tunderclap rumbled across the nearby loop. Higher than the Washington monument and claimed as the tallest structure west of the Atlantic seaboard, the 628-foot tower was bowled over hy two mighty dynamite ! blasts. Wrecking crews worked throughout the night, under the sputtering flare of acetylene torches, loosening its ground supports. Two inch cables of braided steel lashed about with the whine of artillery shells after snapping under; wrenching of the blast. A few moments later the top of the towerj falling at 100 feet a second, struck the ground. A hail of rivets, twisted lengths of girder and battered steel plat- Ing spattered over the quarter- mile danger zone, guarded by squads ot police. Chibagoans, speculating for months over the best manner of tearing down the $1,200,000 towers, had no warning of the wrecking operations. i Century of Progress officials decided on a "private show" for safetyis sake, fearing spectators might[ break through police lines and ojverrun the 1,500 foot danger zone. i ; Tb^ first blast, echoing over the lake, ripped lose the guy : wires.

NEEDS NO ASSISTANCE .Fiery Italian Declares .Country Will Not Be Stopped by Outsiders. Cagliari, Sardinia, June S.'•-- — Benito Mussolini plainly told Great Britain today that Italy s course in Abyssinia is for- Italy alone to decide, and that he would not be stopped. Addressing troops of the Sa- bauda division, to review whom SllddetL Death of Andrew 0. he piloted a three-motored seaplane 280 miles across the Tyr- rhenian sea from Rome, he said of England: "We will imitate to the letter those who presume to be • our school masters. They have shown- that when it was necessary to create or defend an empire, they did not take into consideration at all the opinions of the world." Italy, he said, had firmly decided to accept no coercion in its dealings with Abyssinia. Only yesterday, in the British house of commons, speakers of all three main parties .denounced Italy's course in its dispute with Abyssinia. The men whom Mussolini addressed today are about to sail for East Africa, to wait during the equatorial rainy season his orders as to war. for BEING DELAYED.
