Germany's cleiiiinciiition of the irenty clauses uml institution of universal military service rocked Rtirope already tenw witli Hie increasing momentum of an arms race among the bit' powers. Fran™ and Great Britain already had moved this week toward increased armed strength. Neither the Hitler proclamation nor the new law specifically snid that Germany denounces the military clauses of (lie Versailles treaty hut the conscription law actually was n denunciation and vio- Inilon of the treaty.

F.S TK ill Proceeds of New Levy Will Not Solve Local School 'Finance Problem The (wo per cent sales tax law enacted by the Arkansas general assembly In Us recent, session will relieve but will not end the nnnn- clal difficulties of the Blyllicvllle school district, It Is Indicated by estimates of the revenue the act will produce. Assuming lhat the law Is upheld In the courts, where Us constitutionality undoubtedly will be challenged, It should provide funds for a per capita apportionment to the school districts of the state pf not .less than $2.25 and\pr'pbablv $2.50, - according : \a < -Crawford Greene, former superintendent 'of schools here, now with the state department of education, who was in Blythevlllo today. Such an apportionment would give the. Blytheville district something between $11,000 and "512,500. This gain would be partially offset, however, by a decline in ap'- porllojimenl. from the cigarette tax, due to a ruling giving BO per cent of the proceeds of that tax lo the equalization fund, in which the Blytheville district does not shave. The net gain to the district, it is cstimaled, will probably not exceed $0.000. This would be sufficient, to eliminate danger of default on the district's debt, but it would not provide the money for operation of a free high school. Tlie test high school patrons may hope for. apparently, Is a free school for Ihe first semester ,(18 weeks) of next year, to be followed by a return to the present tuition arrangement. It is even possible that funds may not be adequate for a full 18 weeks of free high school. Every U minutes a murder is committed in this country.

Accounts of methods used In preventing the speech as given by Thomas In a telegram to President Hoosevcll and as related to (be Courier News by Hale Jackson, chief, deputy sheriff In the Osccola . district of Mississippi ciiiinly. varied. Thomas in his telegram said he wns "forcibly prevented by a mob ol armed planter*" from making Ills speech, Jackson said that he lold Thomas he could mnke his speech if he wauled lo but it appeared best for all concerned If ho would "puss It up". He said a group of white men was determined to kcej) Thomas from addressing, about 300 or more negroes and thai while lie promised Thomas that the foul- officers present would give him what protection they could, It np- iXKircd the'wisest course would be lo dispense with the speaking. He said Thomas agreed and left Birdsong with his party of three other while men bul that no force was used by anyone against Thomas or members of his party.

Alleged injustices to sharecroppers under AAA contracts Imve been charged as the basis for agitallon. It was after Thomas hod returned to Memphis from n day's speaking trip to Gllinore, Marked Tree, Lcpanto and Blrdsong that he dispatched the "protest" telegram lo President Roosevelt. He departed several hours later to\ the New England states, Mr. Thomas told newspapei jen, on arriving at. Memphis, that he had been Invited to speak at a negro Baptist church at Birdsong and that a group of 30-odd planters assembled there said, "If you don't get out, .we'll pull you out." As he was being "bustled out," Mr. Thomas said, he asked whether authorities were preferring any charges and was told Hint, the were not. "Then the man who pulled me off the platform came up to me and saltl he represented the sheriff and advised me to go because he could not give me and the Innocent people who were there to hear the speakers protection." "This is but one sample of the most arrogant tyranny I have seen In America." Thomas telegraphed Roosevelt. Sought to Avert Trouble Jackson's account of the occurrence differed. He sold there were between 100 and 150 white men gathered nt (lie negro church and jefore a member of Thomas' party had finished with an introduction of the Socialist leader they began curling verbal threats and shoul- ng to Thomas that he would not bo allowed to sppak. They said In •ffect, accrodlng to Jackson, that hey wrce making their own laws 'or the time being and did not ntend for him to address the arge crowd of negro sharecroppers ind farmers gathered to hear him. "Thomas asked If there was nn itflcer In the crowd and I told Urn there was," Jackson sold. "He then asked me if he had violated any law and I told him le had not. "He asked me If he was forbidden to speak and I told him he wss not." Jackson said that he advised Thomas that he, with three other officers, Shell Harrison, Jess Orear Take $202.46 From Oil Company's Safe Safe crackers entered the Marathon Oil company's bulk plant office off Eoiith Sixth street sometime lust night and removed $202.40 from I tie office safe.

Says Industry Has Been Leader in Creating "Ec. onomy of Scarcity" NEW YOIiK, March 1C. (UP)— Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace lashed Industry today for "plowing millions of workers out Into the streets" nnd cutting production In its "drive for profits." Wallace, In his attack, used the <!ime charges that have been flung against the AAA, accused by its opponents of creating an "economy of scarcity" by killing little pigs andd plowing under cotton. H is ."beyond comprehension," Wallace declared angrily In an address before the Foreign Follcy association, "how any industrialist or urban newspaper can In the same breath approve the behavior of Industry and condemn the behavior of agriculture." "Industry' plowed its millions of workers out onto the streets while there was still a market for goods and did not have one half of one per cent the justification for Its restriction of production that agriculture hnd." Wallace announced his "complete abhorrence" of "the method of competitive scarcity," "Agriculture did not start, it, has never employed It to the extent other groups have, and does not claim to continue further In that direction," he. said. lour of _Missomi Night Clubs Ends in Tragedy l?_ 1 Tl • ,., . ° } Morning This HAVTI.
