n WEATHER TUCSON: Maximum temperature yesterday 96, minimum 75; humidity morning 64 pet., evening 18 pct.; trace of precipitation. An Independent NEWSpaper Printing the Newt Impartially. pro IE VOL. 92 NO. 172 FOURTEEN PAGES TUCSON, ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 21, 1933 FOURTEEN PAGES PRICE FIVE CENTS FRENCH READY TO ADJOURN AS DOLLAR SLUMPS Stabilization Delay Brings ear 01 j5an oi Gold Standard PROGRAM APPROVED American Plan Given Assent by Majority Of Nations . LONDON, June 20. (AP) High French quarters, alarmed by .further depreciation of the American dollar, asserted tonight that adjournment of the world economic conference would be proposed to the steering committee tomorrow unless prospects for currency stabilization became brighter. The French delegation, -which i has steadfastly Insisted stabillza tt tlon Is a prerequisite for success of the conference, fears France may be forced off the gold standard if the value of the dollar continues to decline. The American delegation, however,, was much encouraged tonight by the wide support its monetary program for the lifting of prices and eventual restoration of a perm anent standard of exchange, received today. The steering committee, which determines the course which the conference shall follow, consists of JjMme Minister MacDonald, chairwoman of the international assembly; Cordell Hull, American secretary of state; James M. Cox of Ohio; Neville Chamberlain, British chancellor of the exchequer, and other chief delegates of important countries. France Irritated While currency stabilization remained largely in abeyance today, the dollar weakened again and thus provoked the ire of France and Wfthr gold standard countries. .. The approval voiced today by a number of delegations for the American monetary program refuted assertions in the British press that Europe was lining up solidly against the United States. Secretary Hull and his associates have been handicapped hitherto in making commitments for the conference by ramifications of its own internal revival schemes, i The resolution presented yester-.day by Senator Key Pittman of Tevada suggesting steps for restoration of the monetary standard, designed to use gold as a 'measure of value while rehabilitating silver, received the full approval of Ger-many, Italy, India, China, Mexico and the Irish Free State delegations. Several others, including Great Britain, Brazil and Czechoslovakia agreed with the resolution's broad principles. Senator Pittman s resolution . tended to quiet protests by other .delegations that the Americans have no program. Plan Satisfactory The Nevada senator announced early in the day that his proposal "was entirely satisfactory to our delegation and has the approval of the President of the United States." Both Pittman and James P. Warburg, American financial expert, made it clear, however, that the United States was not ready to go back to a fixed monetary tandard until It was sure that preparatory work, such as restoration of the price levels, is completed. This squelched French efforts to Interpret the Pittman resolution as committing the American government to immediate return to the gold standard. Lord Hailsham, British war min ister, presented an amendment leaving to each government the time and the parity at which the jfmtfons will return to the former utandard, and this was accepted. The French continued at odds with the American proposals .at various points but ran into unexpected opposition from some of their own political allies. Belgium and Poland attacked the quota system for admitting imports, which France Invented and has vigorously applied. Only to the most general aspects of the Pittman plan did the French adhere, saying that others were "so novel" that they must receive etudy. I In the economic commission the Xflegate of France clearly indicated that his country will resist the efforts of great wheat producing countries to get European atates to Import more wheat in place of their own high-priced, protected product. Persons close to the American delegation said today that Cordell Hull, secretary of state and chief of the delegation here, was keenly disappointed that his Washington group had been prevented by circumstances from committing itself on many important conference questions. The secretary, a strong advocate of a program of international co- m operation, was understood, how- ' ever, to be hopeful that a foundation was being laid for greater progress in the international field as soon as the American revival policies had been realized. No Direct Reply Hull did not make a direct reply when asked at a press conference today if he considered that the American domestic program and International efforts for recovery were in conflict. He had not changed his view, he f Continued to Ege 3, Column 41 To Boss Public Col. George R.

(Associated Press Photo) No Time for Wage Heads Are Told Unofficial Representative of President Sits in With Leaders of Both Parties to Discuss Proposed Slash in Rail Wages; Advises Against It WASHINGTON, June 20. (P) The administration has Informed the managements of American railroads and representatives of their employes that it feels the present is no time for a wage dispute. Officials today requested a postponement of the fight threatened as a result of the decision of the carriers to cut wages 22 per cent. Booming Arizona Guns Shake L. A. Windows, Nerves LOS ANGELES, June 20. UP) The booming of - big guns aboard the U. S. S. Arizona in gunnery practice today brought numerous telephone inquiries in various cities in the Los Angeles area, many believing there had been an earthquake or explosion. Windows were rattled by the blasts In some sections of the harbor. Navy authorities said peculiar atmospherio conditions made the reports from the guns more audible than usual. , - - MODISTE'S KILLER COMMITS SUICIDE LOS ANGELES, June 20. (P) While authorities sought him for the murder of Gabrielle Andrleux, 28-year-old Hollywood French modiste, Clifford Sherwood, 40, Los Angeles newspaper columnist, shot himself in the head today as he drove his automobile through Bur-bank, and died a short time later in a hospital. Sherwood, known as a chess expert and an eccentric, was believed to be the grand-nephew of two Connecticut governors. He had been importuning Miss Andrieux to marry him and the woman told a friend a few days before the shooting that he had threatened to kill her if she did not accept him. In Sherwood's machine, which swerved off the pavement after he shot himself, and then crashed into a tree, were found newspaper clippings pertaining to the murder of Miss Andrieux, and others which described a legal fight in 1925 over the will of Phineas C. Lounsberry, who was governor of Connecticut from 1887 to 18S9. Lounsberry's brother, George E., was Connecticut's governor from 1899 to 1901. Sherwood's grandmother was thought to be Mrs. Alson B. Sherwood, sister of the governors. Miss Andrieux was shot to death yesterday in her Hollywood residence. Her parents reside in France but she had been in the United States for several years. NEW FOREST LANDS WILL BEPURCHASED WASHINGTON, June 20 (jTO Robert Fechner, director of the civilian conservation corps today announced an executive order approved by President Roosevelt, authorizing the purchase of between 6,000,000 and 8,000,000 acres of timber and farm land In 20 eastern and southern states as part of the reforestation program. The acquisition of this acreage, at a cost of around $20,000,000, will virtually double the acreage of national forests in the eastern half of the United States. Officials of the forest service of the department of agriculture, it was disclosed, already have opened negotiations with land owners in several of the states looking to the purchase. The acreage would come from the so-called "purchase areas" of land for addition to national forests decided ' on by the national forest reservation commission. There are 42 of these areas In the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida. Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan. Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, WTest Virginia and .Wisconsin Works Program Cuts, R. R. by Eastman The carriers through the confer ence committee of railroad mana gers, served notice on the 21 rail road labor unions last week that the present reduction of 10 per cent, which expires November 1, and an additional 12 1-2 per cent would be Imposed November 1. Acting quickly, and apparently at the request of President Roose-velt, Joseph B. Eastman, federal railroad coordinator, called the managers' committee and the railway labor executives' association to Washington for conferences. He conferred this morning with the managers and this afternoon with the labor leaders. Other meetings will be held. Eastman declined to discuss the situation, but elsewhere it was said that he told both . the . managers and employes' representatives that th administration feels the status of rail wages should be undisturbed for the present. This, it is felt, would allow time to determine whether the moves being made looking to business recovery will be effective. Eastman said today's conferences were primarily to ascertain the position of both parties in the controversy. Although Eastman declined to comment in detail on the conferences, other sources thoroughly acquainted with the situation outlined the administration attitude as follows: . "In view of the present conditions and the upturn in business, this is not an auspicious time to try out the question of a wage cut. "It is felt that the present status should be permitted to continue until such time certainly until next fall as it is possible to ascertain whether the moves being made for business recovery work out," BARBERAN, COLLAR OVERDUE ON FLIGHT MEXICO CITT, June 20. (Ph- Sixteen hours after they left Ha vana, Cuba, Captain Mariano Bar-beran and Lieutenant Joaquin Collar, Spanish transatlantic fliers, had not arrived here at 9 o'clock tonight (10 p. m. Eastern Standard Time). As approximately 50,000 persons who had awaited the fliers at Val- buena flying field returned to their homes, soaked by a heavy rainstorm, government officials ex pressed the opinion that the flight had ended either in the states of Vera Cruz or Oaxaca. As the Spanish fliers traversed the western border of Tabasco they encountered severe rainstorms extending along the 400-mile route to this city. The pilot of & Pan-American plane en route to Merida reported sighting the Spaniards, adding that he had flown around dark rain clouds toward which they were headed. CUBAN DELEGATES GIVEN ULTIMATUM HAVANA June 20. (Professors of Havana university, favorable to accepting mediation In Cuban political affairs by U. S. Ambassador Sumner Welles, today invited their thus-far recalcitrant delegates In the United States either to line up with them or get out. Dr. Carlos De La Torre, the professors' representative before the New York revolutionary Junta, Dr. Ricardo Dolz, former dean of the university, and Dr. Grau San Martin, delegate in Miami, were given until 8 o'clock tomorrow morning to answer, it was learned. If at that hour they have not indicated their willingness to abide by the action of the professors in Cuba, they will be notified that henceforth they will be considered as "revolutionists," and not processors. FINAL VOTE ON TAX BILL SEEN AS BEING NEAR Senate and House Clear . Slates for Action on Revenue Measure GOVERNOR WATCHES Has No Comment on House Treatment of Bill in Committee PHOENIX, Tune 20-(AP) Senate and house of the Ari zona legislature cleared the way today for final votes on a privilege-sales tax one of the four new-revenue producing enactments requested by Gov. Moeur in his special session call. The senate prepared also to throw on the house the burden of completing the chief executive's revenue program. The Income tax already has been adopted by the senate and sent to the house, and In addition to the privilege-sales tax bill, revision of which the upper chamber completed today, the senate has ready for final vote the Intangibles tax and a luxury tax measure. The sales tax is the first of the revenue measures the house has yet considered. Conferees Appointed Appointment of conference com mlttees to attempt to bring the senate and house together on sev eral measures loomed as the special session drew toward Its close. Gov. Moeur spent all day sitting In the house, listening to the acrimonious debate on the- privilege-sales tax. He let it become known he had in his pocket another mes sage to the legislature, demanding completion of his program, but said after he had observed the house in action for a time, he pre- (Continued to Page 14, Column 2) HIGHWAY BUDGET GETS APPROVAL U. S. 60 Receives Its Own Share Plus Sum From U. S. PHOENIX, June 20. (VP) With C. E. Addams declining to vote, the state highway commission today adopted the 1933-34 road budget as originally prepared and Immediately afterward passed a resolution transferring $145,000 from U. S. highway 66 for use on U. B. highway 60 between Globe and Clebecue Junction. The resolution directed that In addition to the $145,000 transferred from U. S. 66 excess appropriations for other projects, if any, be placed on the east end of U. S. 60, the total not to exceed $427,000, including the money transferred from U. S. 66. Thomas S. O'Connell, state engineer, said it would be Impossible to use more than $427,000 on U. S. 60 this year because no work can be done on the road until the bridge over the Salt river is constructed. He said that while the amount au thorized for the highway would not carry construction to Cibecue June tion, it would take it through the heavy construction near the river, and the greater part of the 26 miles to the Junction. The commission also directed that bids be called for July 17 for machinery to make automobile 11 cense plates and for bids for cop per for plates for private cars and alternate bids for copper and steel plates for commercial vehicles. The commission will determine at that time whether It will build a plant to make license plates. WILLIAMS TO MAKE TWO WAY SEA HOP CHICAGO, June 20 (IP) Roger Q.

U. S. Ready to Climb, Then WASHINGTON, June 20. (IP) Government officials are Inclined to postpone monetary stabilization until domestic prices have climbed higher with the aid of recovery program. . At the treasury today Dean Ach-eeo n, the undersecretary, said conditions In this country were steadily Improving without resort to currency stabilization and that the administration could see no need for stabilizing action In the near future.

Although members of the lower house are all set for a fight tomorrow morning over the corporation commission, the chances are there will be no such battle until the next day. The special committee of three members appointed to digest the fact finding report of the Joint legislative committee, will not complete its work on time for submission at the morn- ng session and probably not until so late in the afternoon that action on It will not be possible at that session. May Recommend The report is looked forward to with intense interest because the special committee may recommend Impeachment of certain state of ficials. The three members, William Oxsheer of Cochise, Ray Bennett of Yuma and Jesse Udall of Graham county, are known to take the view that the charges made in the 80- page Joint committee chart are of an impeachable nature but the ad visability of asking impeachment unless there Is at least a remote chance of conviction is a horse of nother color for to attempt an impeachment and fall Is likely to entrench those under suspicion In stronger position than they are at present. But If the committee does not recommend impeachment, it is al most a certainty that some one of a half dozen friends of William Coxon, ousted secretary of the corporation commission, will move for impeachment of Amos A. Betts, chairman, and possibly of Charles Howe, member. In fact, a group headed by Representative W. I. Ettleman has made known that it would attempt impeachment it Coxon is fired and Coxon is fired. While this question Is hanging fire, the report that Robert Red-wine had been selected as Coxon's successor has infuriated the friends of Governor Moeur and 'plenty of pressure is being brought against the corporation commission to block the appointment. Redwine is as sociated with a weekly paper here which attacks Governor Moeur on every occasion and was a strong supporter of Governor Hunt in last year's campaign. He is a political associate of R. D. Richards and Jack Sims, formerly of Tucson, and that is to say he is anathema to the governor and also to Sid Osborn one of the governor's inner circle of advisors. Last night Osborn was closeted for an hour or more with Wilson T. Wright, the one member of the commission who has not figured in the ousting of Coxon or In the charges made by the legislative committee. These charges, at first looked upon as of secondary importance, have begun to grow in the minds of many legislators. The three-man committee to digest them Is an intensely conservative one, and yet it is leaning toward impeachment. The utter disregard the commission has shown for the laws, especially In the blue sky department, they look upon as a serious matter. The first appearance of the probers' report came out when everybody here was more interested in the battle over the highway commission's budget and was almost lost sight of. But that was temporary. With the radical group headed by Ettleman ready to vote impeachment on any grounds and the conservatives reporting in favor of it, there would be little doubt that it would be voted. If the committee does not recommend it, however, it probably will not be voted. Await Price Act on Monies that congress assembled. No evidence of any change In this decision was manifest today after reception of news that French delegates to the world economic conference were alarmed at the de-pieciation of the dollar and contemplated proposing adjournment of the conference tomorrow. Neither this nor the word that French delegates were fearful that their country might be forced off the gold standard if the downward trend of the dollar continued drew any comment from American officials. Earlier Acheson had said the government felt the stabilization question must ultimately be solved but that It should be done only in view of conference action upon , other important problems befor,, It, wanted.

(P) An investigation of the Arizona copper tariff commission was asked of the special legislative Investigating committee today by the Arizona senate. Senator Anglus of Cochise county, introducing a memorial to the President of the United States asking that he impose a duty of at least 10 cents a pound on imported foreign copper, said he had been told by Hoval A. Smith, mining engineer, that the Arizona copper tariff commission is dominated by the Anaconda Copper company and that Sam Morris alone among its members actually favors a tariff on copper. Senator Kelly of Graham said if Senator Anglus' charges were true the matter should be Investigated. He offered a motion, which was carried, to refer the charges to the special legislative Investigating committee. "I'd like to see that committee subpoena Hoval A. Smith and get to the bottom of this," Senator Kelly said. Governor's Buiines Senator McEachren of Gila said he felt the personnel of the copper tariff commission, appointed by Governor B. B. Moeur, was the governor's business and not the legislature's and moved the governor be informed "In a gentlemanly manner" of the charge voiced on the floor of the senate. His motion did not come to a vote. Senator Collins of Pima also opposed the idea of a legislative investigation of a commission appointed by the governor. "It Is all heresy," he said. "I would not pay any more attention to Hoval Smith than to any other Republican." Senator Anglus' copper tariff memorial, which was adopted under suspension of the rules, said that "the President of the United States be and hereby is requested by regulation to Impose a duty of at least 10 cents per pound on each pound of foreign copper Imported (Continued to Pag 4.

(P) A high school youth, accused of kid naping two women golfers and driving them into a forest at th point of a pistol, today told police he acted on orders of two n under threat of death. He said the men declared they would kill him unless he delivered Mrs. C. H. Tomes, 26, wife of Kane business man, and Mrs. L. C Paquet, 30, of Camp Meade, Md., to a cabin in a wood near the golf course where the women were playing. The women told officers the youth, Chester M. Victory, 18, Kane high school student, lured them in to the forest yesterday on the pretext that he wanted to show them a wounded deer. In the wood, they said, he drew a pistol and pushed and dragged them for a mile before releasing them. Victory confessed the kidnaping, police said, adding that he freed the women because he "got cold feet". He was arrested in the forest after the women returned to the Kane Country club and notified police. Hunt for the two men said to have threatened Victory began after John O'Berg, caretaker at the Country club, told officers he saw two strangers talking to Victory a short time before the kidnaping. O'Berg said he saw one of the men flourish a gun. RECLAMATION PLAN FOSTERED FOR WEST WASHINGTON. June 20. (IP) Stabilization of far western agri culture through completion of a federal reclamation program financed with funds available under the public works act is to be sought of Secretary Ickes and the board controlling these funds. A delegation from the National Reclamation association paved the way for the request in a conference today with Commissioner El-wood Mead of the reclamation bureau. Headed by Marshall N. Dana, associate editor of the Portland, Ore., Journal, the group told Mead It was opposed to new projects at this time but felt a share of the public works funds should be used to repair and complete the existing federal reclamation program. It has been estimated that com pleting of the federal program would cost nearly $25,000,000 but officials said today the figures were tenta tive and that nothing definite had 1 been worked cut.
