Snow Capped Mountains Are Paying Dividends This Year Hundreds of Winter Sportsmen Are Turning Utah's Mountains into a Vast Winter Playground— Skiing Comes into Own Salt Lake City, Jan. 2, (IP).— Utah's towering, snow-covered mountain ranges, a century's old obstacle to western progress, ure paying new dividends this winter to men whose souls they've tried. Hundreds of winter sportsmen — and women, too— are turning th( mountains into a vast winter playground, and at the same time pouring silver dollars into the pockets of Utah businessmen. The high peaks of,, the Wasatch range, many towering more than 10,000 feet, lohg have been made to pay dividends in precious metals, irrigation water and retreats from summer heat, but unlil this busi- s of skiing came along, their winter dividends were nil. Less than 90 years ago, westward- lotind pioneers left a trjil of shal- low graves in the Wasatch canyons. Still later, aviators marking transcontinental air lanes paid in human lives. The radio technician found mineral content of ..lie mountains a serious menace lo perfect reception. But all, this is forgiven now, said W. D. Rishel, manager of the Utah Stale Automobile Association, who counfs the winter inflow of tourists and week-end trips of Utah residents as new money for 'Utah business. "Our winter tourist business is gelling belter all Ihe time, now that skiing has taken its place among Ihe better-known sports," he said. "Last year during the summer and winter we entertained 1550,000 persons. We'll have more ban that this year," Nell and his companions had set Ota to get closer io the front lines and had stopped outside Caude for lunch. Insurgent shells directed at government positions in the snow- drifted terrain were whistling overhead. Government artillery was returning the lire. There was a terrific explosion as n shell apparently from the government side struck the automobile. With shell splinters In his legs and abdomen, Neil was taken to Santa lOiilalia hospital near Caude whore at first it appeared him condition was not dangerous. Then he was transferred to the Zaragoza hospital. Before there was any indication of how seriously he was wounded 1 said: "Well, T guess Ihe wails over for me." A Catholic priest gave his blood for a transfusion in a futile effort t) save Neil and was with the newspaperman when he died. Nei] lost consciousness a quarter of an hour before death came. Neil's body will he taken to the United States. Dwight L. Pitkin of the Associated j'ress bureau will accompany it out it Spain. ClaudB G. Bo,wers, United States ambassador to Spain, at Hendaye. on the Franco-Spanish frontier, sent his personal secretary here to facil- ilale the transportation of the bodies of both Neil and Johnson, the magazine writer.

Terming the New Deal an "in vention of business men of a cer tain type," Camero'i said in a ra dio address the "second-string business man to whom business i a "springboard to something more congenial" helped to conceive the New Deal. "Usually in our history," Cam eron said, "when business has giv en signs of taking a wrong tack statesmanship has been far sight ed enough to guide it wisely back md when legislation took a wrong tack, practical business sense could correct the error. "But when poor practical sense and poor business sense combine, he result is what, we see—a whole lock of unwelcome chickens coning home to roost." Cameron, whose speech was in- ernipled as an answer to attacks )y Secretary Ickes on Henry Cord's business practices, said s not "stroni nough to refuse what was asked' >y the "second-string" bnsines! nen but "only shrewd enough to ;ee that those who asked were soft md could be driven, and it has Iriven them."

Senator LaFollette (Prog., Wis.) said tonight in a broadcast address that unemployment was "the one question" which must be answered at the session of Congress beginning tomorrow. "It is not economic, it is not humane, it is not intelligent to allow this problem to linger unsolved as a menace over the lives of all of us," he asserted. LaFollette advocated a large-scale nesses and its principle appliec public works program, financed by Increased taxation "based on ability to pay." Asserting Public Works construction cost the Federal Government only 30 lo 45 cents per hour of employment provided each worker, he added: "Despite this, .essential economy of the Public Works and Works Progress program, business incessantly insisted that the budget be balanced. Time and again it asserted that, if the Government would stop spending, private business could carry on. The Government made a tragic mistake when it yielded to this demand, for it made this new depression inevi- wood-chopping, use of the Seoul iieckorchif-f, Scout ceremonies, games and many Blunts which will be novel and interesting for the public lo see. A sponsoring parllcipatiou committee under the chairmanship of Mr. G. Wray Lemon has been named and letters have been sent to different industrial, civic and social groups inviting their participation in tills big Scouting event. The merit badge booths will be iponsored by Interested linns whose work fits in with the particular merit badge being shown. One of the best features of the "Scout-O-Rama" will be the fact Ihat tile entire affair will be tin? work of Scouts and nothing of a commercial nature will be included. It is to be all Scouting and if the hope of the Roy Scout Conn- that a heller understanding ol Scouting and Scout activity will I>E .he result of this big Scout event. Alfred S. Bendell, Jr., Scout Executive, will be director of the 'ScoiU-O-Kama" and working witli he district commissioners' staff ol :;uy Hoffmaster, Robert Shlrclll!. 'rank Kelley and T. R. Waltz, pro- graming and the co-ordinating ol the different events will be started. "Building a Stronger Generation" This will be the theme of the "Scout-0-Iiama" and during the three days of this big exhibit the citizens of Hagerstown and Washington County will learn what the Boy Scouts are doing and will realize (he aim of Scouting, thai of building character and training for citizenship. All the troops in the Washington County Council will participate and the "Scout-O-Rama will be Ihe united effort of Scouls and Scouters which will number nearly 500. The fact that the event is a boy-planned and hoy-administered should menu much. With the Scouls erecting and making the exhibits the real value of Scouting n-m be realized. Never in the history of Scouting in Washington Connly the three parls of the Scouting program been shown in one place and the "Scout-O-Rama" will mean op porlunily to see and gain first-hand Information about the Scouting [)rog"ram. FDR EXPECTED TO ATTACK_MONOPOLY (Continued from Page 1) on taxation are carried into law the tax on undistributed profits will be lifted from most bus! John D. Diggers, administrator of the Federal unemployment census, reported to President Roosevelt last night that 7,822,912 persons registered in the voluntary census conducted between Nov. 10 and Nov. 20. Subsequent honsc-lo- imise checks in test areas, he said, ndicated this total was but 72 percent complete. Diggers concluded from these findings that the actual total in No•ember lay between 7,822,012 and 0,870,000. He said unemployment lad increased since then. The census count compared with i November estimate by the Amer- can Federation of Labor that the inemployed totaled 8,500,000. A iionth earlier, Ihe Industrial Con- erunce Board made an estimate of ,388,000. Diggers made public tonight the Slato totals on voluntary Federal egistratlon. These showed that in general unemployment was propor- ionately smaller in 'the Mid-West ban elsewhere. For instance, the total of those otally unemployed or engaged on mergency work in Michigan, vliich had a 1930 population of ,848,325, was given as 2-1!),188. fhe total in Massachusetts, which iad a smaller population, was 27,619. Iowa's total was 36,260, compar- d with 130,477 for Louisiana and 20,!M9 for Washington, bolh iinaller Slates. Kansas' was (19,13, compared to 10(i,llSO for the .innller State of Florida. Census olllclals made no attempt t analysis of the figures. One said nfornmlly, however, that a largo >er coinage of unemployment mong Negroes contributed to the nemploynient (olals for the South- rn Slater. Total unemployed In Maryland •as plncod at. 158,288 with 41,518 idles and 1(1,770 females. Work- IK nt.WFA, NYA, CCC or other mergo'ncy wore 12,947, only, and in modified form, to th very large corporations. The 1111 distributed profits tax has beei denounced by business spokesmen as a major cause of the cilrrenl slump. In addition, most Washingtoiiians looked for heated battles over gov eminent reorganization and region al planning—spreading the TVA idea to other important river 'bas. ins—both of which have been. requested by the President. Moreover, there remained the unfinished business of the early winter's special session, including the moribund wage and hour bill which the house solved. Many persons expect the President to request that the wage and hour legislation be revived, perhaps in different form. Two major pieces of legislation passed by bolh houses during the special session, on crop conlrol and housing, were in the hands of committees from both branches of congress for adjustment of differences. And the Senate's perennial controversy over anil-lynching legislation was as usual a big factor in the session's program. The Senate agreed before the holidays that it would take up the measure on Jan. 6 for debate and action. Senators from the south already have shown themselves quick to filibuster against such legislation. Under the present circumstances they have said they saw no prospect of talking the bill to death, but some of them are ready to Iry. Administration leaders are concerned at the possibility that a long filibuster might delay Senate consideration ot legislation requested by tho President. Criticism ot the recent Administration attack upon concentrated wealth came tonight from congres- sional members of both parties. Representative Pettengill (D- Ind) denounced a recent speech by Secretary Ickes, asserting thai "men like Ickes should be retired to private life." He said Congress should "declare its independence ol downtown dictation." "All the good in the New Deal/' Pettengill added in a statement, "is being neutralized by its strain of bale and viiidicliveuess." Senator Capper (R-Kan) called In a broadcast address for cooperation of leadership in government, business, agriculture and labor.
