to Put New Life in His Party Notional Chairman Will Not Wait for Next . Election, Confers with Leaders in Plans NEW YORK, Nov. 9—(AP)— "Republican Chairman John D. M. Hamilton said today he would be' Bin work. immediately' to "revitalize" the Republican party for the congressional election of 1938. He predicted that the party would emerge from 'its defeat in last Tuesday's election with greater .strength in the next few years than it has had since the defeat of Herbert Hoover in 1932. "I'm not going to sit around and wait until a few months before the next election to start work," he told reporters. "I think that from an organization standpoint we are a lot better off despite our defeat than we have been in many years. Never has there been a spirit among the workers such as there was when "we went to bat in this election. Of course, the whole thing went far beyond any party lines. It was the American people voting affirmation of the policies of President Roosevelt." Confers with Leaders Hamilton spent the day conferring with party leaders on finances After the conferences he said the expenses of the Republican cam• paign were well over the $3,300,^ 000 reported by the Democrats earlier in the day and that the deficit probably would run over $1,000,000 as' against the Democratic-deficit of $500,000. The- Republican leader said he had no-intention of resigning or of calling a meeting of the national committee in the near future. He said he had been in touch with about 90 per cent of the committeemen since the election and as far as he knew there was no* demand for a meeting. One of the first moves, he announced, would be a conference with Gov. Alf M. Landon'some time this week at which plans would be discussed. He has not Talked with Landon since the election. He will then go to Washington and establish headquarters. . "Do you feel doleful'about the prospects for the future; of the Republican party?" he was asked. "Not with 17,000,000 people voting their convictions and with more than 450,000 persons-contributing money to the campaign," Hamilton replied quickly. "Of course, I can't keel over and wail against the wall when my party becomes the minority party. Don't forget that the Democrats were in the minority for almost three- quarters of a century and they finally came back with a bang. Place for Minority "I am firmly convinced, and I think every clear-thinking American: is too, that under the American form of. government it is necessary for there to be a two-party system, and under that system there has to be a place for a militant, vigilant party representing the minority. • "I'm not going down to Washington and sit around and shout about legislation just because we happen to have been defeated. I'm not going to. do a lot of things to try to hamstring the administra- . tion, but what we are going to do is to re-assemble our ranks and carry on for the future. "We intend to maintain primarily contacts with the men in the party and the men in the field who worked so loyally with us and for us. I don't intend that the next Republican chairman should have to fauild from the ground up, such as I did when I took over the chairmanship last summer." Hamilton left shortly after his press conference for Chicago. DAICY GAPITAC NEWS/ JEFPERSOK CHY, MO. ; TUESDXY. NOVEMBER 10, T936 Request of Juror for Deck of Cards Infers Hunt Case Defense Asks Jury Be Dismissed os Sheriff Enters Deliberations MACON, Mo., Nov. 9.—(AP)— The request of a juryman for a deck .of cards figured today in a controversy which halted the Jim Hunt murder trial after the jury had been selected. : Waldo Edwards, counsel for the man charged with the murder of Chet Nowland, Savannah, Mo., salesman, moved the jury be discharged because he said he had seen Sheriff B. R. Williams come out of the jury room. Edwards said toe sheriff had no business there since the jury had been placed in charge of two deputies. Questioned by the state's attorney, L. A. Duvall, each juror said Williams had come to the door of ] the room and that one of their number asked if he had a deck of cards. Each said the officer departed after saying he had none. Sheriff Williams told Judge Harry Libby that he had entered the jury room by mistake while seeking the grand jury to serve two subpoenas. Judge Libby discharged the jury for the day and said he would pass on the motion to discharge tomorrow. Nowland, 42, was shot August 22, 1935. Two previous trials resulted in jury disagreements. The first witness called by the state before the motion to discharge presented, was Blanch Stamp, who was hunting with Nowland when he was killed. In qualifying 40 men for jury service, Roy Bailey and Oscar Coleman were excused by the state because they were adverse to inflicting the death penalty.

To Trial on Court of MaHWraydlng Seek Funds for a Count of Jobless Economists Contend Relief Can't Be Properly Administered Without Jobless Census WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.—(AP) —Commerce department officials said today they were drafting recommendations for appropriation of $15,000,000 Mo $20,000,000 for an accurate count of the nation's jobless. They added that ground work for the census—which has been demanded in some quarters ever since the Hoover administration— had been laid. Such a census has been suggested often during the last few years, with some economists contending that detailed, authentic knowledge of the size of unemployment problem was vital to the. success of any attack upon it. Estimates of unemployment have varied widely. To Take Six.Months Officials said the census bureau probably could make the count in from four to six months After the first one had been taken subsequent check-ups could be made more quickly and less expensively. For.several weeks, it was said, census experts have been working on forms which would be used in the.jobless count. The census would be designed to show in which industries and which areas the - unemployment problem was most serious, the length of tune a person had been out of work, the amount' of part- time employment he had and similar data. The census plans will be submitted to congress as a separate proposal, officials said, independent of the.budget and the department's other requests for funds. After th'e first census is completed, periodic counts are planned under the direction of a pro- jected new "division of ^industrial economics.*. ' Ask The department has asked the budget bureau to recommend a $400,000 appropriation to start the division, which would coordinate such statistics for the benefit of industry. Officials said cost of the first unemployment census has not been definitely determined but probably would be between $15,000,000 and $20,000,000. They added that most of the workers would be specialists and familiar with this type of work and further that it was not contemplated there would be any widespread use of relief labor.

Pills and drugs give only temporary relief. The sensible thing to do is to put "bulk" back into your meals. Millions of people get this needed '•bulk" in a delicious cereal: Kellogg's . ALL-BRAN. Its "bulk" is much like that in leafy vegetables. Within the body, it absorbs moisture, forms & soft mass, gently cleanses the system. Some years ago, an investigation was made among thousands of ALL- BRAN users. 98 per cent found it satisfactory. Only 2 per cent had the type of constipation that would not respond to ALL-BRAN. ALL-BRAN is guaranteed. "Try it a week. If not satisfactory, your money will be refunded by the Kellogg Company. Jnst eat two tablespoonf uls daily, either as cereal or in cooked dishes. ALL-BRAN is sold by all grocers. Made by Kellogg in Battle Creek. RUPTURE EXPERT TO BE AT OUR STORE TUBS. & WED., NOV. 10 & 11 . H. J.

Under the man's arm was a good-sized package. A philosopher could not have driven home more convincingly the points he made: "Im no centipede," said he, "but I know that on a healthy man of my middle age even two feet are still going to need a lot of footwear. See this bundle? There are three pairs of brand-new bargains in it. No, I can't wear 'em all at once . . . but there's nothing to stop a fellow f rpm using a bit of horse sense. I've got eyes and I keep 'em open ... I know a bargain when I see it.. .. 'And just because I watch the ads for such things, I figure that I've made a shrewd investment by buying three pairs of shoes for what I'd ordinarily pay for two." Well put, Mr. Farsight! Where is the man, woman or youngster who isn't likely to need shoes—and clothes arid other things—next year as well as today? For the best values, watch the advertisements in this newspaper. Through them buy for the present—and prof it; buy for the future—and profit doubly. --.--*' • - *. —• _ _. _ _ mr__ i DAILY CAPITAL NEWS 0
