LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL BE SHIFTED Governmental Heads Getting Matters In Shape for Transfer of Prohibition Work to Justice Department. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 3.— The department of justice is expected to lake Immediate steps toward taking over the dry agent forces In Pennsylvania following passage of the bill authorizing the shift from the treasury department. Deputy Commissioner Bonncy, at Charleston, W. Va., and Commisslon- Pennlngton, of that prohibition ,uiic, will be brought directly under lhe authority of the justice department, and will receive early orders as to any changes in administrating the dry laws which the department wants effected. Assistant Attorney General Youngquist, in charge of the prohibition division of the department, has been at work during recent weeks on de- details of the plan through which the department intends to administer the prohibition laws. No announcement will bo made, however, until the authorization is passed by congress and signed by the president. The bill Has been passed . by the house and is now in the senate where hearings have been concluded and a report made to the judiciary committee recommending that the measure be passed in substantially the same form as approved > by the house. Early action in the senate will enable the department to effect the shift and revamp the prohibition enforcement mechanism during the summer months. The questions of greatest interest in connection with the proposed transfer, what shifts will be made in the enforcement personnel and what changes in the field administration of the work, will remain unanswered as far a.«i the department is concerned until the lew is passed. It has already been hinted that a drastic change in the number of field offices will be made, with a view to greater concentration of enforcement personnel. It is also rumored that the department is now seeking some one to head tho dry forces, replacing 13r. James Doran, and that this search is being conducted both inside and 110 20 u 32 u 219', 21 U SECOND OFFENDER FINED AND SENT TO ERIE JAIL SOVIET PRESS IS outside of present cles. enforcement cir- - - jviWi.c^n i-uiiiitn l-'ower jiiiitiicuii jjueoinotive American i. and i A. i'. and T. nites Airauur, A Ai-iour, ** ibt.idix uorp .Bi£va Magneto JJoveri ......... .

Address By Shuenfelt. Be Prepared Shoenfelt, opposing the Good Turn candidate for the city's chief executive post, said by radio: "As candidate of the "Be Prepared" party for mayor of Altoona, 1 will explain to you the platform for which we stand. Tho main issues are: 1. Better protection for the children of Altoona while at play. "2. More cooperation between scouting, the home, the school and the church. "3. Better training for leadership. "First, we advocate a more extensive winter and summer program for boys and girls in Altoona. The scouts in Altoona are willing to cooperate with the city in guarding and protecting the lives of her children during their play time. In the winter, sledding, skating and even skiing could be enjoyed with perfect, safety by the children of Al- loona at very little cost to the city. "The plan we propose is, to cleat some of unsettled hills on the outskirts of the city and to conduct regular sessions of sledding and skiing by supervisors, either adults or boys, to prevent the danger of injury to the sled- OPPOSING FORCE By EUOENE LYONS, Staff Correspondent. MOSCOW, May 3.-The "lid is oft'.' the collectivization business. Not only can It now be told, but it Is being told by the soviet press Itself as fulsomely us any Riga correspondent could wish. After twelve and a half years devoted to conducting campaigns of one kind or another, the press here has almost forgotten how to speak in a low voice. It shouts from habit. And just now it is shouting at the top of its voice about the "crippling of the party line" In the recent agrarian drive. Every day the press produces a new sheaf of "atrocities" in connection with the rapid spread of the collective movement. From every part of the soviet union it brings stories of compulsion used not only against Kulaks, but against poor peasants, Red army veterans, pro-soviet school teachers. Some of these reports make lurid reading. In a few instances local officials simply went mad with their new power and turned the confiscation of Kulak property into an ordinary game of legalized robbery, with immediate division of spoils. In even more cases the village authorities, hoping to Impress the higher officials, drove the entire population pell-mell into the collectives under threat of confiscation, disfranchlsement and exile. , , Frontier correspondents in search or sensations will have a veritable feast. Just as for months the soviet newspapers exaggerated the spontaneity of the movement, it now proceeds to cx- iggerate the other side. The volunteer ournalists in the villages read the narty resolutions carefully and quickly also their cue. The style now is to rip he cover of silence from the whole affair and these volunteers are doing t with a vengeance. The outside world, however, will nake a serious mistake if it allows tself to be convinced that the great rush into collectives was accomplished ^ntirely, or even In larger part,by compulsion. Reports by persons who have been on the spot in the farming regions vhlle the drive was at its most rapid point, including foreigners, agree that lie movement was in its main volun- ary. Where pressure was used, it was lot in most cases of a violent nature. The "atrocities" were a dangerous •ash on the surface of the collectivization enterprise, but they were, after all, largely on the surface. How many of the 14,000.000 peasant .•louseholds collectivized by March 1 will remain in the collectives now that the pressure has been lifted? It is certain that the great majority will remain on the new agricultural basis. They will not return to private lamiing. Millions of them will regain possession of their milch cows, their nigs, their poultry, the gardens attached to their own homes and other personal belongings. But the fundamentals of their calling—the land and the farming implements—will remain collectivized. JAPAN CELEBRATES BIRTH OF EMPEROR By MILES W. VAUGHN, Staff Correspondent. TOKYO, May 3.—All Japan today is celebrating the national holiday of Tencho-Setsu—the twenty-ninth birthday of Hirohito, 124th Emperor of the Land of the Rising Sun, and direct descendant in "the unbroken line" of the' Sun Goddess, Amaterasu-Omi- kaml. To Japanese their Emperor is 30 years old today, although he was born April 29, 1901. In common with other Orientals Japanese consider a child one year old at birth. Lantern parades and stretet demonstrations were held throughout the country last night and there were elaborate patriotic exercises today, when business generally was suspended. The emperor and empress arose early to attend a number of functions including Shinto ceremonies before the sanctuary of the imperial ancestor in the shrine of Chiyoda castle, the great moat-encircled palace which is Ihe residence of the rulers in Tokyo. Formal ceremonies will be held in schools and government oflices and members of the diplomatic corps, ranking oflieials and other dignitaries will call at the palace to pay their respects to his majesty. Hirohito ascended the Dragon throne of Japan Dec. 25. 1926. on the death of his father, the late Emperor Talsho. He was formally enthroned in elaborate ceremonies held in the ancient capital Kyoto, Nov. 10, 1927, assuming his duties as head of church and state, as well as commander in chief of the army and the navy. His majesty seldom appears in public but is described as in good health, as'are Empress Nagako and their two daughters, the baby princesses Teru and Taka. Prince and Princess Chlchlbu with other members of the imperial family called at the palace to pay their respects today, while the Dowager Empress, Sadako. Hirohlto's mother, sent one of the officials of her household. Prince Chichibu. as heir WILL HUNT COPPER IN ARCTIC REGION By E. M. GtJNDT , (Special cabla to Altoofi* Mirror and ,N. Y. sun.)

He is never referred to in Japan however, a.s htir-apparent, as Japanese consider this would be a reflection on their rulers for not being parents of a male child. The Constitution provides that only a male may ascend the throne. Prince Takamatsu, the emperor s second brother, is not in Tokyo, having departed with his bride, the former Miss Klkuko Tokugawa, for England on the 21st. He radioed his congratulations from the steamer Kashima Maru on which he is sailing to Europe. Today's festivities were celebrated with especial fervor by Japanese as it falls at the end of the cherry blossom season, which """- tinues from April 1 to 30 and general period of wine drinking and merry making. con- Is a the stock markets.

This would take little or no supervision and would safeguard the lives of the children and would protect the motorist who is constantly endangered by children playing on the streets. The scouts would bo glad to offer their services to help such a good cause along. "Our second issue is that there should be more cooperation between socuting in the school, home and church. First, scouting in school: and junior highs. As an example, Los Angeles has its moat successful scout troop in one of its high schools. With at least 1,000 boys in our high school, we should be able lo have several large progressive troops. "Secondly, scouting in the home should be all-eased since the home is the real starting pluce of each life. Parents should cooperate with men- children and help them in all their trials. Parents should show their sons and daughters the btst things of life and should support and encourage them. "Scouting is worthwhile. Hundreds of mothers and fathers can back this statement, and sinee.it is worthwhile, why should you not have your aon get out of it those advantages which thousands of other boys are enjoying. "Third, scouting and lhe church: There is a religious side to scouting, even though there is no denominational 'irejudice. All boys have their own faith and worship according to their doctrines. Many of lhe troops hold their meetings in churches and have the backing uf Hie church in all ila undertakings. "Scouts of all-denominalions from all parts of the world attended the Worlu Jamboree held in England last year and all were pals. Surely, this should be a lesson well worth remembering. "Lastly, we advocate better training lor scoutmasters and other leaders. We favor, tiie training school so thai the scoutmaster may be able to in- POLICE CLEAR UP RECENT JOBBERIES (Continued from Page 1.) cutter.

Warrants were obtained from Alderman George F. Kolley of the Ninth ward and detainers were served on the youths by Constable Ward Wilson. Formal informations will be entered against them before a Roaring Spring magistrate. Clapper is regarded by the police as the ring leader of the gang.

' The existence his section of the Arctic barrens has jeen known since the memorable Journey to the mouth of the Coppermine and Coronation gulf made by Samuel Heran in 1770, when he brought back stories of this vast and then Inacces- ilble wealth. Since that time Arctic wanderers mve traced these deposits after months of mushing across the wastes, )ut it was not until Jack Hammel, he founder of FHn Flon mines, demonstrated the practicability of air- Mane exploration, that the opening up if these resources to the> world waa regarded as within the bounds of uractical realization. Travelling in planes equipped with skiis, "N. A. M. E. pilots under the direction of Captain Harold Oakes, master pilot of the north, engineers and prospectors will be dispatched :his week on a thousand-mile flight, •rorrt the Pas, Manitoba, to Fort Resolution, Great Slave lake, above the sixtieth parallel. Thence the party will fly across the barrens to Fort Norman, Arctic Circle, and finally to the mouth of the Coppermine, where, twenty-five to fifty miles Inland from the sea, copper ore will be found. Among the prospector-engineers engaged is Tom Crelghton, discoverer of the Flin Flon mine. "These men will be the advance guard," Gordon Duncan, chief of the exploration branch, announced today. "They will have a full month of prospecting before the Arctic break-up In June, when I am flying up to join them, conducting tho major part of my survey from the air." Mr. Duncan, himself a flyer of the great war, explained that the distinctive ore shadings of these copper deposits are readily visible from the air. Construction of a railroad to the copper area In conjunction with the Hudson Bay railway, already pushed through to Churchill on Hudson bay, is seemed practicable, should the ore depo'sits warrant it, and It will mean an opening up of unexplolted hinterland, vaster and richer than the Canadian Pacific railway opened to the east when it pushed Its transcontinental line through the Canadian prairies. The formation of the N. A. M. E In 1928, has within tho short space of two years lifted the miners' horizon a thousand miles north and laid at last the relentless Arctic itself at the feet of the explorer.

The fact that a fixed idea Is wrong-as claimed by some In this case— does not make It any less ' feverish haste to Industrialize the land and to reorganize the basis of agriculture doubtless has been dictated In part by a desire to do the job before the enemy arrives. In discussing their plans for heavy industry, machine building and the like soviet leaders have pointed out cnn- didly the fact that such industry can easily be turned to the uses of war. There Is also ample reason to believe that the moderation of pressure against the peasants just announced by Joseph Stalin Is In part due to the sharpened fear of war. The Kremlin's oft-repeated viewpoint Is that the soviet success In Its *irious economic campaigns is frightening capitalist nations, especially because those nations are engulfed in economic difficulties. It Is the basis for intense military preparations, the announced purpose of which is to make every boy, girl and grown-up capable of taking up arms in the inevitable "defense of the revolution."
