NEW YOKK, Nov. 12.—The flrst*ef- fort to mete out. punishment for the murder of Arnold Rothstein, gambler, bi'ijun in Kcnernl sessions court here today. ficorRC McManus, associate of Rothstein, went on trial accused of having brun Rothstein's killer. He was arrested nearly a year ago and now is he only man held In connection with he murder which has figured so large- y in New York affairs for the last Ifty-threc weeks. Tho trial will be held before Judge hiirles C. Nolt, jr., -and will take place in the same courtroom where J ollce Lieutenant Charles Becker was ricd years ago for the murder of Herman Uosenthal, gambler, whose successor Kothstein, In a way, came to r>_ A jury panel of 100 reported at 10.30 i. in. today for the beginning of tho .rial, which is expected to last three vecks. District Attorney Joab Banton has not revealed the complete detail of the evidence which he expects to marshal against McManus, It was understood, nit the theory of the state is belieycd .o rest upon a claim that the defendant actually shot Rothstein after he md joined with others of New York's sporting, fraternity in an effort to col- eel n, $300,000 gambling debt Rothstein Ulegcdly had refus'cd lo pay. The debt Was Incurred when Rothstein was supposed to have lost heavily in a "high spade" session In an apartment house on upper Broadway. A coat, idcntlllcd as belonging to McManus, found in the room in the Park Central hotel where Rothstein was shot, and a gun variously described as having belonged to McManus, as being similar to one McManus carried and also as* being entirely different from 1'cManus' gun ire expected to bo an important part of the evidence. ' J. D. C. Murray, attorney defending McManus, expressed complete confidence that his client would bo acquitted. He maintained that the state, despite the fact that it has summoned numerous witnesses, cannot build up a case strong enough to warrant conviction even in a minor degree. District Attorney Banton made no statement other than that he was ready to go to trial and considered the case as a simple one. The Rothstein murder took place the night before tho presidential election of 1028. The Investigation became involved in a multiplicity of charges of incompetence and bungling. Police Commissioner Joseph (Warren reslgnec in tho midst of It and Grover Whalen was appointed to his place. Officers of the police department were shifted and demoted In numbers. It became a political issue, because of Intima tlorts of strange Influence Rothsleln had with members of the police department or of the city government Charges that he loaned large sums to prominent politicians and that his in- iluenco with tho police was unusua" were bandied about. At the height of the controversy and as the city election drew near, District Attorney Banton accepted one of the several challenges to try McManu-s and today's trial Is the result.

WOMAN SUFFRAGE- LEADER TO SPEAK Tho pastor and officers of the First Baptist church of this city feel themselves fortunate in securing for a series of four lectures the brilliant and onetime militant leader of woman's suf- 'rage in England, Miss Chrlstabel Pankhurst. Miss Pankhurst was a great champion of th» cause of downtrodden womanhood and'became famous as the founder with her equally militant mother of the Women's Social and Political union. She rose to be the most conspicuous leader of the movement to enfranchise women and saw the cause come to a glorious victory in !ier own country. In 1918 came the turning point in her career. A deep sense of dissatisfaction weighed heavily upon her in spite of the victory of her movement and the victory of the great war. She wrote herself, "Dark, dark was the future as I-looked upon a vista of new warfare, with intervals of strain, of stress, of International intrigue, of horrible prep- ^vrution.s and inventions for slaughter —times of so-called peace, that would bo hardly less terrible, and no less demoralizing than actual war.". It was then she came to see the only absolute program that can solve the international, social, political and moral problems of the world. "My heart stirred to it," she wrote, "as my trained political cyo saw it. The only trouble was that it seemed too {Jood to be true. I yet believed not for very joy." Since that time, Miss Pankhurst has published books and written for various magazines on world politics in the light of the Bible of which she is a devout and discerning student. She speaks and writes with authority because of her wide knowledge of both the Bible and world movements. Miss Pankhurst comes to this city on Nov. 21 and will speak that afternoon in the Logan room of the Penn- Alto hotel. The First Baptist church through its pastor, Rev. Carey S Thomas, has sent a special invitation to the various women's clubs of the city to hear and'meet Miss Pankhurst at 3 o'clock the afternoon of Nov. 21 That service is open to all the women of the city. The subject of her lecture at that time will be "Tho Problem of Good Government." Tho evening of Nov. 21 and the afternoon and evening of the day following, the meetings at which Miss Pankhurst will lecture will be held in the First Baptist church and are open to the public. There will be no charge foi admission though an offering will be taken at each service.

With winter In the offlng and Christmas but six weeks away, everybody has more or less shopping to do, and since practically all of the more important stores are included in the membership of the Booster^, one can purchase anything in the line of wearables, household furnishings, article of personal and home adornment, foodstuffs, musical instruments, accessories- of every description and articles suitable for gifts at the remarkable bargain prices that characterize the observance of Dollar day. .-,.-. The merchants have made great preparations for the event; a glance over the announcements appearing in the advertising columns of the Altoona Mirror today will convince the most skeptical that the new small sized dollar will cover more ground as far as Altoona is concerned than it has at any time since it was issued by the government. The stage is now set and if the weather man will vouchsafe a reasonable brand of weather there will be a throng of people out tomorrow .that will eclipse circus day and every Dollar day that has preceded the one now scheduled. It is a case of earning a dollar by saving one and the" saving opportunities this event will afford are without precedent in local business circles. , ' SPKND DAY HUNTING.

SPEECH JUSTIFIES BRITISH (MENTION /Continued from Page 1.)' "making the rights of neutrals or even combatant peoples supreme over war- making armies and navies will be accepted. The real significance of Mr. Hoover's suggestion is that by recognizing the food problem of Great Britain, the 'president practically accepts the British "view that a navy of large size must be maintained until the rest of the world is ready to givp up weapons like the submarine and commerce raiders. There is another point in the Hoover address which will not have an mi- mediate influence but which gives a hint of what is coming after the London conference limiting naval armament. It will seem a paradox for the nations of the world, after outlawing war through the Kellogg-Briand treaties, to call a conference to discuss the rules of war, but the likelihood is thai the American government will assume the leadership in endeavoring to curtail rights of belligerents in time of war. In other words a conference on the rules of war will be called with the idea' this time of diminishing the area of'conflict and separating, if possible, the non-combatant from the military or naval units. Mr. Hoover's speech was made more for foreign consumption than domestic interest because the principles he has expounded are traditional here anc have the approval of both political parties. Reiteration at this time, however, will carry a new meaning anc it is natural that France, Italy, Japan as well as Great Britain, will regarc the speech as 1 laying the foundation for the limitation, if not the reduction of naval armaments. The president used the word "reduction" in his discussion of the forthcoming conference, but qualified it when it referred to the needs of a country for naval defense. In a nutshell, the United States is not going to ask Great Britain to reduce the size of her navy below a point tha will leave the British people exposed to attack by commerce raiders, who conceivably could starve the Islam empire. Having granted this principa contention of the British navallsts, the American government makes a gesture of friendship which will make it easiei for Prime Minister MacDonald to com pel the naval groups in Great Britain to accept the principle of parity. The Home Guards and Mothers ewela .junior auxiliaries ,to the Worn- n'B Home Missionary society of Al- oona ana vicinity, were enjoyably en- ertalned on Saturday afternoon at tha Simpson Methodist church.
