THE NATIONAL WHIRLIGIG News Behind the Scenes WASHINGTON Bv GEORGE DURNO ROBES: I'resident Roosevelt's appointment of a woman to be juvenile court judge in the District of Colombia may set off a carload of patronage fireworks when congress gets back here in January. The lady. Miss Fay L. Bentley, has been a sort of chief truant officer for district schools. Now she finds hrrtelf the center of a grand political row before she even gets her judicial robes well draped. Several prominent Democatic senator predict her appointment will he held up as exhibit A in their patronage troubles under the new deal. Miss Bentley is rated on Capitol Hill a& a personal choice of Mrs. Rootevclfs. But arch crime they say the young lady is really a Republican. Smator King of Utah was certainly not consulted about the appointment in his official capacity as rhairnian of the district committee, making him an unofficial mayor. HECTIC: Members of congress have been running an ever-rising fever under their inability to get patronage. If the charges of Republicanism against Miss Bentley pan out as the men on Capitol Hill say they will 'he is apt to become the centerplece "i an eiaooraie eniDroiaery or complaints.

DIAMONDS: Administration offi-ii.iJs are beginning to wonder whether the American public is tak-nt to hoarding diamonds since the "d clamped on owning more than $100 in gold. During the first nine months of thij year diamond shipments from sterdam went up 40 per cent in evesi of the same period in 1932. This year's monthly shipments have averaged around 4.000 carats, lit in 1929 when diamonds were mounted on dinner pails they ran bout 15.000 carats.

Wilson asserted he -vas decisively opposed to the proposed state personal income tax, recommended in the five-point program submitted yesterday to Governor Miller by the special legislative committee, unless it should serve as an "offset" to the present tax burden. He touched upon other matters of serious concern to the large assembly of sheepmen in the course of his remarks. Convention sessions are being held at the Elks hall. The afternoon session opened with a general discussion of current problems and association purposes. An address delineating the Casper-Alcova project and what it will do for this section of the state was scheduled on the afternoon program. The convention took an indirect hand in the situation arising from controversy over Johnson lake. Both Mrs. Ivory, owner of land adjoining the stock trail and the reservoir, and Henry Johnson, owner of the water rights, claim rentals for stock watering prlveleges, it was pointed out by Marvin L. Bishop, jr, secretary of the association. He asked that the organization take some definite action with relation to the contro versy, so that woolgrowers in a quandary might know what to do. The sheepmen were divided in opinion, some stating that they trailed their herds past the reservoir without giving it any notice or using it, others asserting it was necessary to water their sheep there. The stock trail, it was pointed out, adjoins the land of Mrs. Ivory but stock are not required to touch her land unless their owner so desires. It was voted that an engineer be delegated to mark out and stake the half-mile stretch where the 500-foot stock trail adjoining the Ivory land, so that trail herders would be plainly guided SHEEP CULLING METHODS IMPROVED. Bishop reported that Mrs. Ivory had threatened litigation against the woolgrowers using the water unless they paid her rental for crossing her land. Several growers present remarked they had been accustomed to paying Johnson a rental when using the water. W. J. Kirk, newly appointed Natrona county agricultural agent, addressed the convention on new methods of sheep culling as compared with past methods. Experiments, he declared, have shown the conspicuous value of the improved methods of culling, as exemplified by University of Wyoming experimental projects. He read a report by Dean J. A. HO of the university on a five-year project by which culling methods were carried out over this period with a Johnston county herd. He cited statistics as to what the scientific culling and herd upbuilding had accomplished. It was an ordinary band of mixed sheep when the project was begun, and as a result of the culling the sheep have become high-grade wool producers with improved wool and breed. Kirk offered his full co-operation lO any oi uie wuuigruwers ueamug It. and any culling information or statistics he might have. He had data, he reported, on the culling methods he advocated. With opening of the meeting.

Midnight last night found a score of men, methodically working, dismantling two great signs, one at each end of the bridge, which dedicated the structure to the gubernatorial administration of Huey P.

JPt The ; Roosevelt administration today dangled before the world an offer to buy all the foreign gold that Is shipped to this country, and again advanced the figure at which the R. F. C. makes purchases of the new output of domestic gold mines. For the latter a price of $32.36 an ounce was established as compared with $32.26 yesterday. Meanwhile, the bullion quotation at London, presumably in response dash from the place last night while machine guns rained bullets all around him.

The gas Is given f f by a colorless liquod smelling faintly of celery. The fumes attack not only the bronchial tubes and the eyes but the skin, even when dry. In this it differs from yperite which only operates when the skin is damp. It blisters the skin and poisons the tissues. A small quantity of the liquod placed on the skin of a large deg caused death within a few hours with all the symptoms of tissue poisioning. Masks, no matter how perfect, are useless against the gas, Professor Bert says, as it attacks the entire body. It would be almost impossible to devise clothing so hermetically sealed as to prevent thi gas from seeping through at some point. r hi i earns To R eac Three Lives Lost in Fire TIVERTON. R.

It also weakened against the franc. Details of plans for purchasing the imported gold, including the price to be paid, remained undisclosed, as did the status of negotiations with Great Britain.

(P) I Senators and representatives of the country's 17 sugar producing states were invited today by Representative Murdock (D., Utah) to unite in a conference with department of agriculture officials in an effort to solve the problems of the Industry. Murdock said his plan calls, for presentation of the industry's prob lems to the agriculture officials and if no results are obtained there, to go before President Roosevelt. He said Utah sugar growers and manufacturers, including Stephen Love, high official of the Utah-Idaho Sugcr company, now in Washington, have approved such action. "In my opinion the stabilization and marketing agreement offered to the AAA by the industry is the kind of a plan that should be adopted." the representative declared. He was discussing the substitute plan presented by the agriculture administration which, he said, "would make the secretary of agriculture an absolute dictator of the sugar beet industry."

There was concern manifest in all walks of life, from members of both political parties, from cattlemen and farmers all constituents who had watched with pride for years the labors of the senator for his state. "I'm Just a railroader," one man said over the telephone, "but please tell me how he is now. I do love that fine man." That expression was typical of many. Senator Robert D.

I can never be forgetful of the many kindnesses which he has shown me, his willingness td help me and the friendly advice which he has given me on many occasions.
