TWELVE AKRON BEACON JOURNAL WEDNESDAY. MAY 24. IfKM GOVERNOR DEMANDS SALES TAX PASSAGE Sets Stage For Last-Ditcli Fight; Seeks Support Of Oakley Spaght fContlmied From Page Qncl lution calling for a decrease in the mill lew from 15 to 12 mills." "I don't see why that can't be done," the governor replied. Later, his spokesman in the house revealed that a resolution would be drawn and presented Wednesday specifying that in all counties, the mill limitation must read 12 mills. With that promise, Spaght participated as a speaker in the sal?s tax hearing held Tuesday-night In the house. "I'm In favor of the sales tax." he declared, "but it must be a replacement tax." The session was for proponents of the sales tax bill sponsored by the governor, and that bill offers nothing in the way of a definite guarantee that more than a minute pcr-tion of the sales tax revenue shall be used to replace the real estate levy. "But I didn't promise to support the governor's bill," Spaght told the Beacon Journal correspondent later. "I can't go along on that mrasure. But I will support my own sales tax bill or a similar one if the joint resolution cutting the realty levy Is parsed." Besides the proposed joint re solution, intended clearly enough 0 pacify Spaght and others who Insist upon a clear-cut reduction in the real estate levy, the governor's campaign to save his pet measures embraced another gesture Tuesday. Offers Two Bills Senator Wallace Espy, administration lieutenant in the senate, introduced two bills, one to require of county treasurers that they act as receivers and collect rents and income from real estate after taxes on It had been delinquent six months or more. The other bill strikes at public j officials who own property and have neglected to pay taxes while j drawing salaries from public office It would pfrmlt "gamisheement" for taxes. The senate taxation committee to which the measures , were referred criticized both bills at a hearing Tuesday night and failed j to rsport cither out for passage. "Where did you or the governor get the idea for these bills?" asked ; Senator Frank E. Whittemore of Espy. Senator Espy said the county treasurer-receiver method was in i operation in Illinois where Cook county (Chicago) had managed to collect over $6,000,000 in delinquent ; taxes in six weeks. Sees Tax Compulsion "Do you expect to collect taxes that wouldn't otherwise be paid?" i asked Whittemore. Espy's contention was that a great many persons were deliberately holding back and could be compelkd to pay taxes by the threat of receivership for their real estate. "But whv pick on real estate," demanded Senator Carl D. Sheppard. "How many millions of dollars are found in delinquent personal taxes how much in intangibles why not a j receivership threat for them?" Espy, merely a spokesman and not actually the author of the measure, hastily appealed to Carl Dargusch. young' tax commissioner. Dargusch couldn't explain why the receivership idea was restricted to real estate except to point out that real estate couldn't dodge such a metnoa. At this juncture, the committee was treated to an outburst from Senator Earl Lewis that visibly shocked the conventional democrats. Not Going To Collect "Gentlemen, you might as well i recognize the fact that you are ; never going to collect these millions of delinquent real estate taxes," said the Belmont county senator. "I see. and you see all about you the be-ginning of popular revolt against mounting government casts, and I don't know but what I'm in sympathy with that revolt. Such a measure as this intends merely to arm government to oppose this popular outcry, this veritable, threat of revolution. I can not subscribe to such a policy." The other Espy bill, providing for distraint of a ublic official's salary to pay his delinquent taxes, was accepted merely as a questionable gesture by the committee. The bill would permit the county treasurer to requisition and claim 25 per cent of the salary due any official to apply on his delinquent taxes. Bills Are Enacted In the house Tuesday afternoon, an emergency bill was passed to authorize the state to borrow money to supply casual failures in revenues, caused by deficiencies in tax collections. Another emergency measure, introduced by Representative E. H. Deihel of Medina, and providing a method of transfer of funds by county commissioners and township trustees without necessity of a special act ot the legislature, was passed by the house. The long dispute over disposition cf the Myron D. Osborn farm in Erie county was settled Tuesday when the house voted 84 to 26 to turn the property over to the state welfare department to be used for raising crops for the Ohio Soldiers' and Sailors' Home at Sandusky. Previously, a resolution had called fcr transfer of the farm to the con- Barberton Driver Sued For $25,000 There was at least one fcrtunate j side to the accident in which clarence Wall, 439 Wunderlich v Bar- i berton. received the injuries recounted with filing in common pleas court of a $25,000 damage suit. Wall's trip to the. hospital was exceedingly brief. The accident occurred at Wooster rd. and Sylvester St., Barberton, virtually at the door of Citizens hospital, the petition states. William L.

HEHEHEH That one recalls the time Joyce Hawley sat unpeeled in a bathtub loaded with laughing-soup the orgy that made Earl Carroll's almost bald top balder. Miss Hawley, who didn't know any better at the time, didn't even get paid for the job. When this fact became gossip among some stage mothers who were babbling, one mamma said: "And can you imagine! She posed naked and didn't get her money!" "She didn't!" ejaculated another parent, "why where was her mother?" AND SHE DID Helen Morgan went to see a show the other night and came away disappointed. Later, at the Embassy, she remarked how bored she was with it. "I'm surprised that yon didn't like it," sarcastically chirped one of the ineffectuals, "it's been running a long, long time!"

Edwin Emerson as serving Hitler's Nazi newspaper in Washington. Colonel Emerson feels that the item is misleading and has asked us to inform our readers that he is not Hitler's liason officer of the United States or an officer of any foreign country, and that he has never been such. We gladly publish this correction. Preparation for a detailed description of the projected reorganized First-Central Trust Co., to be submitted to the Reconstruction Finance Corp. in Washington, together with the balance sheet of the proposed bank, was started Wednesday. Former Congressman Francis Seiberling, general chairman of the reorganization committee, was hopeful that this detail would be ready for mailing late in the day to Jesse H. Jones, chairman of the board of the R. F. C. Outline Full Progran- This description of the proposed reorganization will lay before the R. F. C. directors the complete picture of how it is proposed to operate the institution, if it is licensed, how new money is to be taken into it, how depositors are to be paid, the assessing of double liability on stockholders, and all other information that in any manner touches the program that has been discussed for so many weeks. The R. F. C. examiners in Cleveland advised Seiberling yesterday to prepare this written statement, and submit it with the balance sheet of the proposed bank to Jones immediately. Seiberling said there was no indication from F. S. Callander, R. F. C. agent in Cleveland, whether he approved the proposed setup. Seiberling believed, however, that the outlook is favorable. It will not be necessary for Seiberling or any one else on the re- I organization committee to go to Washington, Seiberling said today. The written prospectus will be laid befcre the R. F. C. board, and acted upon. Seiberling said he would press for an early decision.

"I suppose you're right on the inside, eh?" the man snapped nastily to be rid of the pest. "How do you know so much about this horse?" "I," the other replied, drawing himself up stiffly, "own him!"

Balloonist Inspects Metal Ball In Which He Will Enter Stratosphere Lieut. Com. T. G. W. Settle Wed nesday was at the factory of the Dow Chemical Co. at Midland Mich., to inspect the spherical gon dola in which he hopes this summer to ride to the stratosphere and a new altitude record. The gondola is being constructed of Dow metal, a magnesium alloy one-fourth lighter than duralumin. It is about 7 feet in diameter, providing just room enough for Lieu tenant Commander Settle and his aide to ride and make their scientific observations during the flight. Settle was in Chicago, Tuesday, making further arrangements with Century of Progress Exposition and Chicago university officials for his flight, and looking over the Soldier's field site from which the takeoff is scheduled late some night early in July. He is expected back in Akron Thursday. FOUR SUITS AGAINST POLICEMEN SETTLED City Pays $450 Damages In Shooting At Car Occupied By Woman, 3 Men SURE SIGN Izzy Elinson offers this paradox: You'll know that your boss is on his feet again when you see a stenographer on his lap! MERCILESS TRUTH And. adds the Pathfinder to the list of them, the honeymoon is over when the bride stops calling up the groom by phone when he's at work to make him guess who it is. YOU KNOW THE TYPES David Murray says: Well, the village blacksmith is no longer located under the Chestnut tree-nowadays the radio comedians are. Four suits totaling $75,615 against two Akron policemen will be withdrawn from common pleas court under an agreement with the city to settle the damage claims for $450. The suits were filed by Miss Helen Knam, of Salem, James Pickett, Roy Morrison and Joe M. Eartherly, against Policemen Wallace Graves and Donald L. Mellinger. City council Tuesday approved the $450 settlement. Court action resulted from the policemen shooting at a car on N. Adams st. on July 10, 1932, in which the three men and Muss Knam were riding. The policemen reported they were searching for prowlers at the time. BY WAY OF REPORT F. P. A., Bill Coram and some of the other paragraphing princes have been arguing over the value (or waste of time) of schools of journalism. Is training at such seats of learning important? Do the better newspapermen come out of them? Well, we wouUn't know. In 1923 when the opportunity to enter a school of journalism was offered gratis by a proud kin we spoke to Glenn Condon, our editor, about it. "Don't waste your time," he counselled, "if tomorrow you walked into any editor's office looking for a job and the editor said: 'What experience, if any?' and you said: 'Four years practical experience in a trade magazine office' you'd get the job!"

He died of five bullet wounds and a broken heart at Buckeye Lake park, late Tuesday. Even a bear can love his home-even if it is a cage with iron bars and little pen hardly big enough to walk around in. The b:ar was brought to his cage in Summit Beach park eight years ago, when he was about 4 days old. He had never been out of it. Life ran along pretty smoothly for the small black bear, the first seven years. Then over his innocent head broke the storms of foreclosure sales and bankruptcy courts. He was lonely, he was sad. Kind-hearted p.ople like Mrs. Leo Mayntler and Miss Ruth Bakin on 286 W. Miller av., fed him and petted him, for he was as tame as a dog and pathetically glad for some one to keep him company, since he was all alone in the world. DON RICHARD, 716 Gl?ndora av., tells the story: "Harry Ho-neck bcught him and sold him again to Buckeye Lake park. Early Monday the little bear began to hown and neighbors told police it was because he was thirsty and hungry while others said it was indigestion. Whatever it was. the bear felt sad. and told the world. "About 3 p. m. Monday," Richard said, "the bear was sniffing out of his cage, hoping for company when some strange men, Hary Honeck and Eddie Roberts, came over to him. According; to Richard lie trotted over and looked as glad as bears ever do for a little petting and perhaps some candy. They got in the cage, and the bear was even happier. He growled his appreciation and even let the input a rope around his neck all in a joke, you know. And then, says Richard, like a flash, the little black bear understood. They were taking him away, away from home. He fought. He dug his little feet in. he snarled and snapped, he lifted his voice to the skies and howled for help. It took 12 men. pulling- on that rope around his neck to put him on the truck, and then only when he was exhausted and almost unconscious from choking. THEY gave hi m.slecping pills before they drove away, Richard relates, so the last he saw of his iron cage was through a soft haze. Then he closed hi.s eyes and woke up at Buckeye Lake park; woke up to the terrible pain of a broken blood vessel and a broken heart. The little bear wanted to go home. He was afraid and unhappy and he wanted the sky to be striped with black bars the way It always had been. Then he suddenly went mad with the pain, and his owners were forced to shoot him.

Verdict for the defendant had been returned in Common Pleas Judge Arthur W. Doyle's court and the ninth district court of appeals sustained it. Thompson was killed Sept. 21, 1929, on U. S. route No. 20 near Kipton in a collision between his automobile and a Goodyear test car. Mrs. Thompson filed the action against Goodyear as administratrix of her husband's estate. Mrs. Thompson sought a review of the case by the supreme court on the grounds that several members of the Jury were employed by the Goodyear company, had relatives so employed or were connected with the rubber industry. Raymond Firestone Honored At College DISCUSS GARBAGE COLLETCION PLANS Service To Be Continued For Period After June 1, Clcmmer Says Garbage collection by the cily will not stop on June 1. but will be continued a week or 10 days beyond that date, Fred E. Clcmmer, service director, announced Wednesday. While proposals for private garbage collection have been discussed with several groups interested in obtaining a franchise for the collection, no definite offers have bren made and the city has not yet drafted its specifications on which formal proposals may be made. Opposes Long Contract The difficulty arises, Clcmmer told council Tuesday, in that most of the tentative offers which have come in are for contracts for three or five years. Clemmcr Is not in favor of a contract of such length, believing that if financial relief legislation now before the state legislature and congress Is passed, the city will be in a position to resume municipal collection, probably within six months or a year. Within a week Clcmmer hopes to have th? specifications drafted and be in a position to take definite offers for private collection.

The action, it. was reported, was brought to prevent the statute of limitations from jeopardizing Mrs. Stein's claim arising from injuries received when an auto in which she was a passenger ran into a ditch near the airport administration building.

McDonnell succreded the late Harry Welch, the first detective chief Akron ever had. Welch died early this year. CHIEF'S FORMULA WAS HARD WORK Eddie McDonnell was an Akron Institution. He was a big man physically. And he had a lot of mentality, too. The secret of the McDonnell success in the business of detecting law breakers is not traceable to anything unusual in the chief's methods. Eddie McDonnell never PLEADS RELIGION AS CORE FOR ILLS Dr. McDowell Asks Nation To Let Christ Help Solve Problems COLUMBUS, May 24. fAP) Snying the social and industrial problems of America are religious problems, Dr. John McDowell of New York called upon the nation today to let "Christ come into every aspect of human life."
