1 Entered as second elasi matter, Oct. 4. 1896, at post office at TJpton, Ind., under the act ol March B, 1879, VOLUME XL, NO. 215. TIPTON, INDIANA, TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE lly 1935. E SIAKE IN CASE ON TRIAL Benefit Payment I toder Policy Issued to Earl Cunningham at Issue. TOTAL REACHES $26,000 Action Being Heard in Circuit Court Will Continue Into Wednesday. Slab of "Washington Oak" Will lie Placed in Museum White Plains, N. Y., June 11. — Arrangements have been made to place a slab taken from the "Washington Oalz Tree" in North Salem, which recently was felled for the safety of pedestrians, in the Westehester county historical • society museum in this city. The tree, said to have been more than 500 years old. has a legend attached to it dating to .the time when George Washington and his officers were .passing through Westcherster and stopped to lunch under the" tree. According"to the county historian, the tree, which stood in front of lie home of Ernest Q. liailey. contained a ring in the trunk to which the horse of General Washington was tied. I. The- action brought liy John W. Cunningham, guardian of Karl J. Cunningham, against tin 1 New York Life . Insurance Company which started in circuit court Monday morning was resumed Tuesday and attorneys are carefully watching every question and' answer going into the records. The trial is proceeding before' Judge Frank B. Russell without a jury and many objections are made and exceptions taken, indicating that which evt-r way the €-(Airt rules in Die matter the action will ho appealed. A large sum is at slake in the matter, as young Cunningham, now cimfined in the Indiana Central Insane hospital at Indianapolis,"" is 1ml 20 years of age and has a liff expectancy of 44 years. Tlic policy which was issued to him by. the insurance company provides ToT payment of $50 'p6r~ month for life for total disability and this would amount to $2fi,- 400. One of the dramatic incidents of the trial Tuesday was the testimony of Mrs. Sheridan, cashier of the" Western Union Telegraph Company'at Anderson, who went through high school with Earl .T. Cunningham. Mrs. Sheridan testified he was president of the honorary society of the Anderson high school ..and stood at the head of his classes. She testified of seeing him after health broke, when his mental he" came to her home in Anderson after not having seen her for isorne .time and asking for his wife, and when she entered the room, started toward her, saying, "My wife." Mrs. E SOFTBALL TEAMS Recreational Director Announces Games for Senior and Junior Leagues. SIXTEEN TEAMS ENTER Sheric\an stated she jhad never been in the company |of Cunningham and testified that at that time he was of unso.nnd mind. tjea and lg One'of his professors at Pur- croquet p|ng . due university was also a witness at the hearing Tuesday and testified as to the good grades made by Cunningham at the university during the first thn>e years. He told of the difference ]in the youth in the fourth year and of his being unable to concentrate .and could not make his grades. The case in a manner hinges on whether Cunningham's health broke before his insurance policy lapsed as the second year payment was never made. Cunningham is the son of a farmer near Anderson in Madison county and """as considered an unusually bright yc-ung man in high school and at Purdue, until his mental health began to break. The complaint alleges his insanity is of the kind that is Incurable and that he will, new ir be any better "than now. The i action was sent here from Msdison county for trial and will ba resumed at the Wednesday seas on, attorneys predicting it would i ot be finished Tuesday. John W. Ward, high school coach, who has been employed by the park board as recreational director, has announced his sched- ifles for the soft bal! leagues for the next two weeks. The interest in soft ball is,'greater than Coach Ward expected as there are seven junior teams and nine senior teams. The Perfect Circle has two teams in the senior league and the Kemp Memorial -Methodist church and the First Baptist church each have two teams in the junior league. The soft ball schedule will run into September, probably ending about the middle of that month and four good diamonds are available for the games. The leagues will play on the St, John's school diamond, the diamond on the Nickel Plate grounds at the Junction, the diamond at the Perfect i Circle plant and the diamond at the Tipton park. Coach Ward is at the park every afternoon from 2:00 o'clock, on, directing recreational actlvi- organizing tennis, pong and horseshoe games. His schedule of games for both the senior and junior leagues opens this week, the former Wednesday with three games and the latter Thursday with two games. All games will be played at 5:00 o'clock except Saturday when the teams will play at 2:00 p. m. The schedule as worked out by Mr. Ward is as follows: Senior League.

THE EXACT STATUS Hoped to Have Federal Projects Start in July With November Peak. (By Unltoil Press). Washington, June 11. — The official score ot the new deai's $4,000,000,000 fight-against the depression today stood: Depression, 3^00,000 unemployed fam- ly Meads on relief rolls; new deal\none put to work. President Roosevelt "made the fund available more than two months ago, on April 8.. The new. deal has made no definite progress in that time toward ending the dole by July 1, 1936. by- creating 3,500,000 jobs. The exact status of the program is: 1. The division of applications and information has received 1,285 project requests totaling ?!,466,432,188. DAI has tentatively approved 447 applications amounting to $688,726.920. 2. The advisory allotment board has recommended to President Roosevelt allocatfon of. jl,- 193,000.000, including $500,000,000 for distribution to states for highway construction and grade- crossing elimination. 3. Mr. Roosevelt has allotted 5814,213,600, in-eluding the highway and grade-crossing money, §156,000,000 to the federal emergency relief administration for direct relief and $107,186,500 to the U. S. army engineering corps, most of it for rivers and harbors improvements. 4. None of the money has been actually spent for employment. Program leaders predicted the drive would be underway by July 1 and reach its peak in mid-No- .vember. Difficulties causing the administration to lose valuable time In transferring needy from relief rolls to federal payrolls jiave been two-fold: 1. Finding projects that will put men to work for a year at :in average cost of $1,100, including wages for 1'2 months and cost of materials. Per .man employment costs .must be kept within that figure if the program is to achieve its goal. 2. Organizing forces to administer the drive. President Roosevelt set up the DAI with Frank C. Walker, New York attorney, as director, and the works progress division headed, by Harry L. Hopkins. He appointed a 23-member allotment board with Harold "L. Ickes as chairman. Program leaders, despite their failure to make progress, 'were seeking to. start needy earning wages instead of receiving ont- • Continued on Page 2.

SEES REAL CRISIS |TOO MUCH DISCUSSION I Another of Tipton's pastors lends his- influence against the sale of liquor by the drink in Tipton. JRev. C. A. Wade, pastor of the Baptist church, expresses his views in a letter to this paper. He writes as.follows. I want to join the army that is opposed to the sale of hard liquor by the drink in the city of TIptou. Not because I have anything -against individuals who wand to sell or drink it. But because liquor is an enemy to all. I want to say "Amen" to what my [fellow-pastor, Rev. John Ward Rose says in Saturday's is- \j sue of this paper. Liquor is a most subtle enemy to ali that is good. Even the eagle gives his warning scream, the tiger his growlf the rattlesnake his rattle and the adder his hiss before they pounce on their victims; but liquor blights the mind, kills the body and murders the soul without a note of warning.^ Why. triflle with such a deadly enmey to all that is good? I ,have been greatly impressed from the beginning of my residence in this city with the splendid charater of its youth. There is a i reason for the high character of the youth 'of this community. This is an agricultural community, jit has become my conviction from observation it takes good soil i to grow good boys and girls as well as good crops. The morale of a farming community is usually; above that of an industrial. Now why vote to tempt these splendid young ipople to throw away their virtue? And when ac- tlonj is taken, those who are not actively against it are at least pas: lively for It. And let me add, thai, no one is safe where it is sole,. Some of 'the best families have furnished some of the worst vie ims to drink. I understand that the crisis is Wednesday night in the city council.

Washington, June 11. — Administration leaders failed today in their efforts to rush air'NRA extension resolution through the senate during a half-hour overtime! session. The senate's traditional fondness i for protracted discussion caused downfall of the leader's plans. Chairman Pat Harrison of the senate finance committee announced he would bring up the NRAj resolution again as soon as ithe senate had disposed of the pending public utility • bill later this afternoon. The senate met at 11:30 a. m., but 'encountered an unexpected move from Sen. Robert P. Gore, D., Okla., who offered an amend- menj requiring t.hat nil government workers receiving $-1,000 or more in annual salary be appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate. . ' Gore was supported by Sen. Huey P. Long, D., La. At noon, under the agreement entered into by the senate yesterday.! the senate reverted to the public utility bill. Seven minutes pf the half-hour were consumed by a quorum call. Another interruption came when a messengei; from the white house; delivered a bill that had beeif acted on there. I Harrison explained the continuing resolution, saying his c.>ii- mitree was sponsoring ;ari amendment jwhich, he said, '. would .pro- tectj the country from any general suspension of anti-trust laws.

Fight in Presidential Campaign, Is Forming. Springfield, 111., June 11.— Grass Roots Republicans were asked today to endorse "collective bargaining" for labor and "stabilization of the farm market as the central points of the mid- west party creed to be adopted at the 10-state conference here. Russian Ship,-Sunk BOO Years i Ago Rives I'p Silver and GoW Helslngfors, Finland, Julia 11.—Hopes for recovering : a fortune in gold and 'art treasures from a Russian tax collecting ship, which went down two centures ago, were encouraged this week when deep sea divers sent up silver and gold. .. Two of the heavy pieces of silver recovered were apparently . candlesticks, and one piece of pure gold'appeared to have been a finger ring., Previously only an assorted collection of cannon balls, hand weapons and even old shoes, had been found. The divers, working at a. depth of sixty feet, are tearing apart plank by plank wreckage of the old ship, which, as tradition has it, sank in a vio- len storm while returning from plundering the Swedish coast. Springfield, 111.. June 11. — Support of new deal principles sound and helpful to recovery and opposition to those of "revolutionary" nature was urged today by Robert G. Simmons, former congressman, and delegate from Nebraska to the Midwest, "grass roots" convention of Republican leaders. "We should draw careful distinction between those parts of- the new deal program that attempt revolution and those that do not,*' Simmons said. Simmons, one of the two principal speakers on today's program, said the Democratic administration "has been feeding poison into our system of individual liberty, but the siiprom-s. court has administered an -effective antidote by declaring it unconstitutional." "The president now asks that the American people .aid liberty to commit suicide," said Simmons. "We should challenge the president to submit the specific constitutional amendments that he and his followers seek. "He has made fhe issue. The people will decide. Let us battle it out along that line in every community of America." Coliseum, State Fair- Ground-;. Springfield. 111.. June: 11. — : Gras« roots Republicans from .10 farm belt states found common cause today against the new deal in a "declaration of grievances" holding President Roosevelt personal-. ly responsible for a "design to set up a collectlvist form of government" in the United States. This Midwestern meeting . appears to have designated the prime issue upon which the. 1936 presidential campaign will turn. Hard pressed resolutions committee members are completing today a "declaration of principles" np : on which these prahrie. states — with 123 electoral- votes within their borders— will be asked to STIVERS TAKES POLICE DUTIES Plans to Make State Police Most Efficient of Any Department.
