DAILY CAP1TAE MEWS, JEFFERSON CITY; MO., THURSDAY, JUNE 23, 1938 Funds for 291 Are Approved ·Work Pro jects Ail of List Had Been Approved by President Before Congress Passed Spending Bill WASHINGTON, June 22-- (AP)| -- The Public Works Adminis-, tration began its 1938 spending- lending program today with al- lotments of $41,632,717 in grants and $9,021,000 of loans for 291 projects. Howard A. Gray, assistant ad- ministrator, said the 291 projects ·would involve $92,520,374 of con- struction. The grants were for 45 per cent of the cost and the · loans for 55 per cent. The dif- ference between the total of loans and grants and total of construc- tion cost, Gray said, would be made up by the applicants. Six grants fell in the million dollar class but the vast major- ity were from a few thousand to as much as a half million. They had, been approved by President Roosevelt even before congress .passed the $3,750,000,000 spending-lending bill. 2,000 ?rojecfs by Friday PWA construction work will be Allocated daily until 2,000 pro- fjects will have been mad-: public Friday night. The bulk is expect- ed to be nonfederal projects on which the government will ad- vance grants for 45 per cent of the cost -and the applicants will put up -the other 55 per cent. The first sroup of 2,000 projects ·will cost about $600,000,000. Pub- lic works officials said this week's projects were being taken from nearly 3,000 applications held over from the old PWA program of the last five years. New applications were expected to bring the total to about 4,000, or enough to produce $2,000,000,- 000 of construction by June 30, 1940. WPA Program Ready The Works Progress Adminis- tration, which received $1,425,- 000,000 in the spending-lending bill, also prepared to put new funds into operation, but on a more limited scale. Work relief rolls, which have been increasing at the rate of about 30,000 persons a week, are near the 2,800,000 average which Administrator Harry Hopkins said he expected to carry with a pos- sible maximum of 3,000,000. The new funds are supposed to last until next March 1. "This money," WPA officials said, "is to be looked upon as ad- ditional funds to keep us going « n our present stride and we in- -- ilend to carry on without fuss or feathers." The allotments included: Brayrner, Mo., waterworks, $31,- 090; Braymer, Mo., sewer system, $22,091;'. Kansas City, Mo., munici- pal bldg:, $443,623; King City, Mo., sewer, $29,250; KirksviUe, Mo., paving, $204,545; Leadwood, Mo., gymnasium, $30,240; Milan, Mo., courthouse, $56,454 grant, $69,000 loan; St. Joseph, Mo., schools, $405,000. How Money Divided WASHINGTON, June 22-- (AP) --This is how congress split up the $3,750;OOP,000 in the spending- lending bill approved by Presi- dent Roosevelt: $1,425,000,000 for work relief jobs for 3,000,000 persons until March 1, 1939. $965,000,000 for public works projects under PWA, expected to provide a year's work for 1,000,000 persons. $300,000,000 for the slum-clear- ance, low-cost housing program. $212,000,000 for farm "parity" payments. $175,000,000 for farm rehabili- tation loans and grants to more than 600,000 farm families. $100,700,000 for the rural elec- trification program. $75,000,000 for the National Youth Administration to aid 600,- 000 persons of school ages. ; $25,000,000 to start a three-year] deral public building program i that eventually will cost $130,-i 000,000. ,,. I $6,000,000 for the Puerto Ricoj reconstruction administration. j $30,000,000 for administrative i costs and numerous administra- j tion agencies. Hold Egan Gang Member For Bombing Plant ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 22-- (UP) -- Isadore Londe, 34, one-time member of the Egan gang, was ar- rested today for questioning in the bombing of the Howard Clean- ers plant here June 2. Police said he had been identi- fied as the thrower of the bomb which did $1,000 damage. Londe denied the accusations. The cleaning plant has been picketed by members of the clean- ers and dye house workers un- ion, an affiliate of the American, federation of labor, since March of 1937 in an effort to enforce their demands for a closed shop anl a 40-hour week.

Dissatisfaction with the new week were proving a boomerang. Many Aryan shop-keepers and Aryan employes in Jewish stores say they are economic victims of the Jew-baiters, quite as much as the Jews themselves. Movie houses in districts where ! raids have been the order of the day complain of half-empty hous- es. Not only are Jews staying extends far in- the Nazi party members, as numerous conversa- aons with individual Nazis show. Daily a train of 200 mules wends its way up the Pyrenees passes from France, bringing supplies to ' the Spanish Loyalists' "lost battalion" Americans' World War memo- ries of a "lost battalion" conjure up a dramatic picture of a tatter- demalion band, surrounded by the enemy, in dire straits for food, water and munitions, and ready to die in their trap rather than surrender. Not so the extraordin- ary "lost battalion" of the Spanish Loyalists--the 10,000 men of the 43d division. Fact is, they are sitting pretty in a pocket high in the Pyrenees Mountains so nearly impregnable that if has been call- ed a "military paradise." Although in the heart of Rebel-held country, with the foe on three sides, the French border is at their rear, and they can escape any time they want to. But Lieut. Col. Antonio Betran, their commander, has no intention of retreating. In his 20-mile square stronghold he has cleverly dis- posed his men so that small groups with machine guns command all gates to the mountain-fenced aerie. A frontal infantry assault through the narrow passes would be sui- cidal. Being 8,000 to 10,000 feet up, they have no fear of artillery shelling or aerial bombing. Their abundance of food and supplies makes the "lost ones" about the best fed and cared-for soldiers in all Spain. A caravan of 200 mules makes a daily trip from France laden with food, cognac, cigarets and oil for the division's numerous motor cars and trucks. The men are in good health. For excitement they raid one of the 4 Rebel towns outside their moun- tin fastness, case out the small garrison, as they did recently at Fanlo, collect fresh food and fod- der, and new ammunition. But no earthly paradise can last indefinitely. When the snows come--early in September--clos- ing passes to France and isolating the position, the Division will have to move. But in- the mean- time, the men take great pride in being a "lost battalion" that's sit- ting on top of the world. Fights Arkansas Plan To Operate 2 Ferries LITTL EROCK, Ark., June 22-- (AP)--R. C. Butler, receiver for the White and Black Rivers Bridge Company, today filed in federal court here a double-barreled at- tack on Governor Carl E. Bailey's plan to operate free ferries -over the Black and White rivers in competition with the company's toll bridges at Powhatan and Des Arc. Butler asked an injunction to prevent the state highway com- mission from continuing operation of a free ferry at Black Rock, near Powhatan, and from proceeding with condemnation proceedings against property controlled by the bridge company at Des Arc. A petition filed by the highway commission and scheduled for hearing in federal court tomorrow, asks authority to condem land at Des Arc so that state highway 38 can be rerouted away from the toll bridge and across a proposed free ferry.

The trained eye of your physician can tell at a glance that you are bilious or, as we Southerners say. you have so-called "Torpid Liver." To make sure of Ms diagnosis he looks for a coated tongue, poor appe- tite, and digestion. In the absence of more serious symptoms he tells you that you are bilious and need z. little calomel. When you see the symptoms of biliousness why wait until you are really ill? Take Calotabs. the im- proved calomel compound tablets that make calomel-taking a pleasure. Calotabs act like calomel and salts combined helping Nature to expel the sour stagnant Bile and washing it out of your system. One or two Calotabs at bedtime with a glass of water,--that's all. Next morning your system feels j clean and refreshed, your head is clear, your spirits bright, and you are feeling fine with a hearty apper titfi for breakfast. Eat what you wish and go about your work or pleasure. Genuine Cilotabs are sold on'jr !n checker-lsoard (black and -white* pacfc- tjes bearing the trade marl: "CalotVo*." Avoid Imitations.

The deed of gift specified a building of monumental de- sign and permanent materials requiring minimum maintenance to be constructed within an allotted appropriation. Otis Floyd Johnson, architect, and Lorado Taft. aesthetic adviser, chose concrete as the material offering the greatest architectural possibilities plus unusual durability and economy. The entire exterior is of concrete left in its pleas- ing natural color--even the sculptural details which were cast in plaster forms.
