Max Gardner, of North Carolina, de- Scribed the plight of the south's agriculture as a national and international problem here today and asserted the burden.of solving the problem fell primarily on the federal government. * Addressing the four-state meeting attended by the governors of the two Carolinas, Virginia and Georgia, he said President Hoover should call a riational conference on agriculture and an international conference to deal with the cotton situation. *A divergent view was taken by Governor Ibra C. Blackwood, of South Carolina, who spoke after Governor Gardner. He pointed out that Texas, Louisiana, South Carolina and other cotton producing states had taken steps to limit next year's cotton acreage by legislation. "Having committed ourselves to this program we must carry on," he said. "We can not afford to wait on South Africa, India and China." The North Carolina chief executive had asserted-that any cotton plan that did not take into consideration the cotton growers in foreign countries was fallacious. ' ' "We must hope that the south does not-cut its throat by reducing its cotton acreage while the rest of the world increases acreage," said Governor ttardenr. . When Governor Blackwood had set forth his views, Governor Gardner •suggested that the conference go into executive session. Sitting by Governor Gardner at the opening of the conference were Governors Blackwood, of South Carolina, •Russell, of Georgia and Pollard, of Virginia. Agricultural and marketing experts from the four states were also present. . Governor Gardner pointed out he could not pall the legislature of this state into special session with any restriction upon what it should consider an9 said he did not feel he should cajl a special session under the circumstances. "' Governor Blackwood said he could hot get the "same slant as the chief gained his sanity and was ready to be turned over to tfc^m for trial. For the present the matter will be dropped and Winders will be kept in the state institution to which Judge McElroy sent him after a Rowan jury had declared him insane in September. In justification of his decision to turn the prisoner over for trial, Dr. Anderson states that he has shown no signs of insanity since, being brought to Raleigh. His type of insanity is such that it may be years before he becomes affected again and Dr. Anderson thought in justice to the prisoner he should be given a Rearing and not kept in the hospital indefinitely on the original commitment. mm HELD >.

Lexington, Nov. 13.—Mrs. Lola Pickett, widow of this city, was taken in custody yesterday by county officers and lodged in jail without bond pending further action in the investigation of the deaths of her two small daughters, Elizabeth and Virginia, believed to have been poisoned with arsenic. This action was taken at the behest of the coroner's jury which in an executive session Wednesday night directed that Mrs. Pickett be arrested and held without bond as a murder suspect.

The service of the American Red Cross to suffering humanity is af actively portrayed in the Red Cross window in the Ramsey - Bowles store Wednesday being th opning day of the Red Cross roll call. In the window the kneeling figure of a woman is represented, her back to *}.€ street, her face raised in supplication to the standard of the American Red Cross. The worn shoes, the shawl draped over the head, the cane gripped in upraised hands — the whole attitude of the pathetic figure symbolizes the appeal that the crippled, the suffering and the needy make to the Red Cross — an appeal to which the Red Cross has been responding: for fifty yean. In the background is the American flag, and there are also 50th anniversary posters of vhe American Red Cross in the window, The window was arranged by Miss Annie B. Wingo, Mrs. Frederick Burger and Mi's. Lonnie Mills. Pridmore Denied New Trial Columbia, S.'C., Nov. 12,-tfhe state Supreme court today declined to give A.
