FRIDAY, JULY 31, 1930 IED III! IE Id U1LT Storage Place for Billions in Preparation in Kentucky Hills WASHINGTON. (OP)—Inability lo complete « road needed for transportation was disclosed loday to liavc delayed the treasury In 115 plans to move $0.000,000,000 of its Imge gold stocks Into an impenetrable hoarding place in the Kentucky hills during August. Tile storehouse—equipped with every known "burglar proof" device—Is Iwlng finished in t'nc heart of the recently mechanized • Fort Knox, Ky.. military reservation. Treasury officials, using mighty armed guard forces, had hopjcl to move the gold from New York, Philadelphia and eastern centers during August. But Shipments probably will not begin until September as a result of a delay in finishing a concrete approach road, they said. Meanwhile secret conferences a<j to how to guard the most valuable shipment of precious metal In the world's history nre on foot. Consider Military Guard ' It was believed rnal the tnsk would be assigned to iwstollice inspectors and the secret service. Guards will 02 posted alon? the route as the heavily armored trains " •'start their trip. Some thought was beln<{ given to asking military precautions also. ', Local police authorities will bs asked to cooperate in the shipments of the hundreds of ions of .'Jlie gold metal, which Uncle Sam took over and melted into bars under the Gold Act of 1934. The ,Kentucky shipment is In line wifii the Treasury's'policy of taking most of its vast $10.500,000,000 gold stocks from mints and a.ssay offices along the Atlantic and . Pacific coasts into safer interior points. •* , Mint Shipment By Mail ; About $2,000,000.000 was moved In 193D from San Francisco to the more impregnable Denver mint in the first of the transfer operations. Tills was shipped as parcel post— guarded by poslofflce. inspectors. : . Moving the gold through the ;. streets in heavily • armored trucks ..' and from the trains late at night • under drawn guns, the Denver shlp- ..ment was delivered without a hitch -tand few if any outside- Arsons •knew its movements. Tile Fort Krtbx vault is a "fort. like" two story :aliair on a raised level of ground. The' interior -is ;. : ;stee)- agd .-concrete. .vThe : exterior .'.is Emmie./Sit is 105 by 121 feet filled with cabin-likS subterranean vaults that can be flooded by •water through pressing a button. mt'\ Building Cost $600,030 f-S, T'ne structure Is surrounded hv ' two ditches (o be filled with water Torch-proof sttel and "burglar proof" locks are used throughout the building, which cost Uncle Sam In the neighborhood of $600,000. When the Kentucky shipments are finished, the Federal govern- 'incnt wiil have three quarters of Its record breaking gold stocks safely guarded untoground at interior points. The remainder will be left at mint and assay olllces as a "working balance." All'/iough shipment plans are unknown, some sources said that H might require 50 or 55'armored trains to move the precious cargo. BLYTHEVILLR, (ARK.)

AnsUied 6u.- Physician* Senator Raney is the owner and operator of a large burial association which bears his name, he being n leading . undertaker and the , only stale licensed cmhilmer In the county. Under the old law, an undertaker's bill must be paid first from the estate of a deceased person. When Dr. Geoige Introduced a bill and passed It through the State' Senate placing doctor's bills on the same basis with those of an undertaker, Mr. Rnney supported Senator George's bill In the House and wns greatly responsible for Its passage. Is for World War Veterans During his 12 years' service in the legislature, Senator Hancy has voted for every kill sponsored by the American Legion and against every bill they opposed. He'-helped pass the law that created the Service Bureau to aid Arkansas veterans of the World War. The Slate Engineering Act Is another good law on pur statutes that bears his name. Persons who desire to practice or engage In engineering in Arkansas ate no* required to pass a satisfactory ex- nmlnatlon as to. their qualHlca- tlons. The new Arkansas Bridge Law was Introduced by Senator Raney. Under this law every bridge built by the State Highway Department has been constructed and all such bridges shall be free as soon as ' the tolls shall have paid for jame.' No tax on our farm : lands was levied for the building of these bridges and no Individual or corporation can ever own them They belong to and are the property of every citizen of-our state.

".Too much . favoritism has been shown in the spending of relief .money, and where anyone Is found. acting dishonestly and unfairly'. with such ":. funds, they should be discharged at once," he said. - Has Two-Opponents Mr. Raney has .two worthy op- pcnenls, both of whom are from Mississippi County, which county has been honored with this' bllics for the past 16 years. Lse County furnished bur congressman for eight years, Phillips County ten, Cralghead eight, and Mississippi 10. The office pays $10,000 "a year. : •', WHI-Known Citiztn Mr. Raney was iecently elected vice-president of trie McCrory Rotary Club and was also recently elected for -the third consecutive year as president of the Arkansas Club of Burial Associations. He is a member of the Woodruff County Farm Bureau, the Woodmen of the World, and is ex-State Commander of the* Sons of Confederate Veterans, Arkansas Division. He Is a native son and all his life has been spent In Woodruff and Clay counties, and he is held In high esteem "by his hundreds of friends and neighbors. He Is making a clean and honorable race for the nomination for congressman of this district, nnd his life, and public record, ability and achievements all bespeak for him favorable consideration by the voters. Upon his record concerning liicse and other meritorious laws which he worked for and helped to pass, he asks that he be promoted from the lawmaklng body In our stale to the office of congressman, whore he will serve In our national lawmaking body! Vote for him and First Congressional District Is $124,434.42, and the .total amount received by the schools of the First JCoiJ.resslorinl D,'ttrlct : . is $1,573,912.44. making a 'net' gain and showing of having received 51,549,638.02 more tlmn wo paid under this law, which was one.of several that Senator Rnney helped to get placed on our statute boohs.
