Washington. Juno 17. — Ad, ministration pressure was directed today toward the house of representatives where storm signals flew in the path ot" two major new deal measures. The public utility bill and the Wagner labor relations bill, both o£ which have passed the senate, were involved in controversies which threatened considerable Je- lay and possible revision. The -closing weeks of congress usually find the house marking time, waiting for the senate to act. This yefY administration leaders find an unexpected stubborn opposition developing in tha house to bills already acted upon by the senate. The house today took up the problem of finding revenues to finance new deal undertakings while the senate worked on President Roosevelt's social security program. Hous« leaders made the $500,000,000 nuisance tax extension bill the first order of business. Gag rules will ward off amendments and passage by this afternoon was predicted. The senate Was ready to give Sen. Huey P. Long, D., La., an answer to his "share the wealth" program. Also working under limitation of debate, senators will vote today on Long's demand for substitution of his plan for the old age pension provision in the administration's social security legislation.

Bloomington, June 17.—"What we ask of educated men and women today, is that they serve the nation, not as builders but as critics of Utopial," said the Rev. Mc- Ilyar Hamilton Llchllter, pastor of the • First Congregational Church of Columbus, O., delivering the baccalaureate address to approximately one thousand Indiana University seniors late yesterday. The baccalaureate service was one of the events in the 106th commencement activities, to be climaxed with twilight graduation exercises tomorrow.

CALLES WILL STEP OUT Mexico City, June IV. — President Lazaro Cardenas seemed tb have emerged the unquestioned victor today in a dispute with Gen. Plutarco Elias Calles, lor years the national leader. In a statement Calles said' that in criticizing Cardenas' labor policies he did not Intend to Intervene in ( publlc affairs. He announced he was leaving the capital area, and TiRES MAY LOOK ALIKE ON THE OUTSIDE ON THE INSIDE THEY ARE DIFFERENT HEAT on the inside created by friction is the main cause of blowouts. Firestone Tires are different on the inside —they arc built with the patented extra process of dim-Dipping that soaks every cord and insulates every strand with pure liquid; rubber, preventing internal friction and heat. No other make of tire is Gum-Dipped. Firestone performance records again emphasize the undisputed evidence that . Firestone Tires are not only blowout-proof, but give greatest protection against Bkidding. There are three questions and answers that •will solve the problem of . what tires to buy: QUESTION 1—"Will the «read sjve me the greatest traction and protection against skidding?" ANSWER—Recent fesfs by a leading University .. show that Firestone High Speed Non-Skid Tires stop a car 15% quicker than any other of the leading makes. For eight consecutive years Firestone Tires have been on the winning car in the dangerous Pike's Peak Race where a skid means death. This is undisputed evidence that Firestone gives' car owners greatest protection against skidding. QUESTION 2—"Are they blowout-proof?" ANSWER— Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires have the most amazing records for being blowout- You Always Get when proof of any tires ever built. In the gruelling 500-Mile'Race at Indianapolis, May 30th, every one of.the 33 cars was equipped with Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires. Not one of the 33 drivers had any tire trouble of any kind. Ab Jenkins drove his 5,000 pound car on Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires over the hot salt beds of Utah, 3,000 miles at 127.2 miles per hour, with temperatures as high as 120 °, without tire trouble of any kind. These are most amazing proofs of blowout protection ever known. QUESTION 3—"Without sacrificing these two important safety features will: they give me longer mileage, thus making them the most economical tires I can buy?" ANSWER—Firestone High Speed Tires not only give you more than 50% longer wear> but also lowest cost per mile due to the tough, wear-resisting tread builtwith higher shoulders and a wider, flatter contour. This rugged tread is held securely to the Gum- Dipped cord body by Firestone's patented construction of two extra layers of cords under the tread, a special construction feature not used in any other tire. Unequaled mileage records by thousands of car owners add undisputed evidence of longer wear and greater economy of Firestone High Speed Tires.

Em- leaving also full for public affairs responsibility 'to those who have them in hand." It was predicted that as a result, after Cardenas' formation today of a cabinet completely loyal to him, there might be an important amelioration of the religious situation', which .has brought thousands of Catholics out openly against the government. .When Cardenas dismissed . his cabinet Saturday, there went with it, as supporters of Calles, Tomas Garrido Canabal, leader of the Fascist Red Shirts, and other men most inimical to Catholics. When 10,000 Catholics demonstrated here yesterday they denounced Calles and praised Cardenas, and police said they had government orders not to break up the demonstration. Cardenas' new cabinet was expected to include only a bare handful of men who served in the previous one. Calles' statement today was a complete surprise. It was interpreted as a clear gesture of peace and as indicating- his complete retirement from politics for the present. It was regarded also as ending the dispute precipitated by his criticism of Cardenas, also for the present. ployes went hack to their work benches {at the plant of the Stover Manufacturing Company today, their sii weeks' strike ended.

THB TK3EB (By United Press). Washington, June 17.—Swing Y. Mitchell, ousted assistant secretary of commerce, attacked, the new deal today in a statement that charged "improper favoritism and graft abound" in the department of cdmmerce.; "It is unfortunate but nonetheless true," Mitchell said, "that the department or commerce'is not the only department in Washington where the ideals of the new deal have been strangled, improper favoritism arid graft abound, where there is apparent evidence of corruption, and the progress of the old steal proceeds unabated." Mitchell's services were terminated Saturday by President Roosevelt after he had refused to tender his resignation or accept a subordinate legal position. Mitchell, in making public letters between President Roosevelt and himself," said he would have a further "important statement in a few days." His letters to Mr. Roosevelt revealed he had been in sharp disagreement with Secretary of Commerce Daniel C. Roper for a year. He attacked the Pendergast Democratic machine in Missouri, likening it to the Tammany machine of New York, in March, 1934. His statement charged "serious derelictions" in the commerce department, including "scandalous abuses" in connection with the permanent lay-up of the giant passenger liner Leviathan, and improper inspections contributing to the Morro Castle disaster and the Missouri airplane crash that resulted in the death of Sen. Bronson Cutting, R., N. M. He agreed in a subsequent letter dated last may 30 that "sinister influences" had been working for months for his removal. He asserted he had been "met with the active hostility of the entrenched special interests,--who fattened at the public crib during past administrations an'd who have marked me for slaughter because I have consistenly opposed their efforts to continue their predatory tactics under your administration." Mitchell asserted he was drafted for the job and that he refused to be tempted away from it "even to avoid a bitter conflict with the racketeers who-are now boring from within the department." He charged "Secretary Roper has supinely surrendered to the special interests that have dominated this department and the old shipping board under the Hoover and previous administrations." His letter called attention to the President's inaugural address promising the money-changers 1 were to be driven from the temple, and asserted that instead of driving them out Roper had invited them in. The Whole-atmosphere of his department has been to Whitewash and cover up the delinquencies of the past and to accede to every demand made by high pressure lobbyists and representatives of selfish interests, irrespective of the merits of the government have been repeatedly subordinated to expediency.and the currying of favor with such interests." • President Rosevelt had ordered a study made by the department of justice'' of the charges contained in Mitchell's letter, It was : revealed. Leaves Prison to Make Her Some ] With Mother and Sister. (By United IfressJ. t La Mesa, Cat.,. June 17. — A tiny, withered, 77-year-old woman stood at the window of a modest cottage here "today waiting for Clara Phillips to come home. ': It was Mrs. Ola Weaver, aged mother of the once notorious "tiger- woman" who was hi^ be re- ; turned to society after 12 yWrs In prison for the murder of a woman whom she suspected of intimacy with her husband. A bowl of freshly cut sweet peas stood on the table behind the excited little woman. The house had been, cleaned from attic to cellar and new doilies had been arranged on the chairs in the "parlor." "If we can only keep people from asking too many questions," Mrs. Weaver said as she looked out of the window expectantly. I know many things have been kept from me, but I also know Clara is coming home and that's all i care." Mrs. Weaver and another daughter, Miss Ola Weaver, have been putting the house in order for more than a week. The Weavers lived here for more than two years and until today no ons knew they were relatives of the "tiger woman." "It doesn't matter now," Mrs. Weaver smiled. "I only hope the world will forget her, and will let her livo in p,eace with me during my last days. Next Sunday wo will celebrate her 37th birthday." She arranged a new doily on the arm of a chair."I have had a hard life. My heart has been crucified by Clara's troubles and while she has been away I have lost the only son I was able to rear out of mi- family of eight. My husband died in 1915." She looked out" of the window again and continued; "We were all happy in Waco, Tex. We came to California from there 13 years ago, and I often think that if we had never come maybe this horrible thing wouldn't have happened." Clara's sister, the elderly Miss Weaver, who was largely responsible for obtaining her parole, betrayed bitterness. She declined to discuss the homecoming and refused to talk of Clara's husband, Armour Phillips, except to say that her sister had not heard from him for more than 10 years. "Why can't the world develop the Christian qualities of mere/;?" she asked. Mrs. Phillips first flashed across the headlines in July, 1922. At that time she was 24. She was a beauty of the burlesque type, and very proud of her shapely legs. In fact, she had been a chorus girl prior to her marriage to Armour Phillips, handsome young broker. Alberta Meadows was a stenographer. Clara suspected her hns- band of a current love affair with the stcographer. Clara drove Miss Meadows to a lonely spot on Montecito Drive. There, with a claw hammer, she beat the life from her and horribly mutilated lier body. The next day she surrendered to police. « The state produced evidence to show she purchased the death hammer just prior to driving Miss Meadows Into the hills. This, the prosecutors insisted, proved pre- • • S 35c and BLUE FRONT DRUGST081 Plcturcs of Children.

She;had only 51 cents in her possession. Almost a year later she was recaptured in Tegucigalpa^ Honduras. She was brought back to California and became No. 37944 at San Quentin on June 3, 1923. In prison she was: a leader in such social pursuits as prison life permitted.
