1 AMES DAILY TRIBUNE T?MES. AMEB, IOWA. THURSDAY, AUGUST P. 1934. 'BUY BETTE1 IN AMZB W SIEGE STILL UNBROKEN Repels Attempts To Oust Militia NEW ORLEANS <UJR> - The "liece of New Orleans" by Senator Hue/ P- Loss's military forces remained unbroken Wednesday. The "Klngfish" successfully repelled an attempt by bis bitter political toe, Mayor T. Semmes Walra- »ley, to oust the militia from the office' of the registrar of voters •which they have occupied for more than a. week. Walmsley had asked Civil District Judge Nat Bond to jail Long and Adjt Gen. Ray Fleming for eontempt because they failed to abey a temporary injunction ordering troops out of the registrar's of- Ice. Judge Bond ruled it was jfrst necessary to show Long con- •plred In the troop invasion and to «rve the original court order on Fleming, who has evaded service. Meanwhile, Long, in blissful ab- «nce on a fishing trip, laid down a barrage against gambling and vice, which he said provides a J13,- WO.OOO. graft income to the city Political machine. His weapon was £fs monthly newspaper "American Progress." The newspaper sum- inarized the situation in these words: "AH you have to do is to walk ttowh the streets and see the lottery slips in the gutters, hear the handbook barkers on the streets yelling 'big odds upstairs,' see the jlice:clicking in the 'big rooms' and jratch the keno games in full blast "The world famed New Orleans i|d light district has increased to 16 times the number of habitues .that were there when the district Was closed by the United States •war department in 191S. . . ." All illicit resorts in New Orleans were closed two weeks ago when the strife between the city machine and the Long clique broke into the open. Police are enforcing the close-down order to the nth degree, even "cracking down" on lotto games at church socials. IOWA CITY (UP)—Unversity of Iowa graduates of 1934 are getting jobs more quickly than any graduating class since 1930, a survey by "officials of various colleges showed Wednesday. Altho complete figures were not available, it was stated that those who received diplomas in June have.a 20 per cent better chance of employment in "white collar" occupations than graduates of previous depression years. Placement was markedly better for graduating lawyers, engineers, and social service workers. M-:h of this -increase in employment of college graduates was attributed by Prep. Eugene A. Gilmore to the flow of federal funds into the state. Dr. Gilmore pointed out that engineers were being hired to work on public works building propects, social service workers to distribute federal relief funds, and lawyers for the legal departments of government bureaus. 'Twelve graduates of the univer tify'college of law are now working for federal land banks and farm loan "agencies, Dr. Gilmore said. The prospect for graduates of the liberal arts, commerce, and education colleges was not improved to any appreciable extent. Medicine and dentistry groups were reported as "holding their own." • Commenting on federal expenditures which were responsible for the increase in employment rates, Dr. Gilmore said: "We don't -know •whether the government is still priming the pump or whether -we're actually getting water, but we hope it's water."
