Charr cannot be naturalized because he is an oriental, but he may remain In this country because he served In the American army during the World War, and has lived here since 190S, when-he came from .Korea. It's all very puzzling to the couple who married-and began raising a family, Philip, 9 months, and Anna Pauline, 2, In San Francisco.

NUTTER (Associated Frets Leased of the TI/lEXICO CITT, Jan. 2.—Mexico •"•••.enters 1933" with a four-fold program of agricultural, educational, Industrial and. road-building development, and no indication that any serious internal disturbance may develop. The Catholic religious Issue has) become more or less dormant. Radicalism apparently has been curbed by the government's recent firm policy In the agrarian controversy In Vera Cruz. There was no presidential campaign scheduled until 1934. . So It was fashionable in Mexico these days to talk of progress, peace and accomplishment, and wise lenders quicUJy have followed tho lead in this regard of President Abelardoe Rodriguez. Every Mexican leader of note, except Adalberto J. Tejeda, who recently left his post as governor of Vera Cruz, has made efforts to soft- pedal the political and the forthcoming presidential campaign which may upset Mexico a year hence. Mexico's 1933 relations with the United States will Involve four principal Issues—radio, poaching, river rectification and claims commissions. Radio may become tho most troublesome. The practice of disgruntled American radio owners to open powerful propaganda stations in Mexico has brought frequent protests In the United States Congress American listeners. and from End Colds Quick .«>•"••"•_ j *"•"•* .**** w««««ii,v.iiCB uuiua IPJW.

Works • > HUMS . Whether the United States Congress will ratify the recently concluded claims commission renewals nnd whether Ambassador J. Reuben Clark, Jr.. will be able to advance the river rectification work to its conclusion' before March 4 arc questions time alone will answer. Both matters have elements of trouble, as also has the poaching and fishing boat seizure episodes recently south of San Diego, Calif. Mexican leaders hoped the era of cordiality and good will brought here in 1927 would not chill on the Inaugural of President-elect Roosevelt, but the Mexican press has felt called upon to recall that International relations were decidedly strained during the last Democratic administration 'in the United States. (The claims commissions issue involved - recompense demanded by Americans for property seized In the Mexican government's nationalization project. The river rectification Issue concerned, loss of water by Mexico as a result of the construction of the Hoover dam on the Colorado river and Us loss ,pf land due to the changing Paso.) Catholics Rio Qrando's course 'at El were not. satisfied with existing restricted religious conditions, but In view of Instructions from Homo to respect tho laws and cause no trouble, disturbance from that quarter was remote. The radical tendencies of Tejeda brought him up against a mag recently -when the federal government began a troop movement Into Vora Cruz to demobilize Tcjeda's agrarians and terminate their threat to the nation's peace. U.UfflKEMll ISilED Larry Fay Slain by One of His Employes During . Wage Clash Frets Leaieit Wtrc) NEW YORK, Jan. 2.—Slain by tho doorman of his garish mldtown night club, Larry Fay, high-powered Broadway racketeer, was a victim, of his own modest gesture At'unemployment relief, police said today. Fay,' a product of the Hell's Kltchon district, was sh'ot through the heart last night ns ho attempted lo mollify a man whoso salary had boon cut to make room for another employe. Policy, .discrediting reports the shooting may have had the moro sinister .aspect of a planned underworld execution, sot out to find Edward Ma- lonoy, a doorman, who disappeared Immediately after four shots had cut Fay down. Tho ono-tlmo milk "czar" and tax L tcab operator whoso night club enterprises onc'o brought him as much as $10,000 a week, died with three dlinea In his pockfit. He was said by, police to have cut Maloney'u $100 a week salary to $60' In order to take on another doorman at $40. . Fay began as a policeman, but ho didn't last long on tlio force. His night life career started when he made a race track "killing" In 1918 and turned most of the proceeds Into a taxlcub business. A few monthu ago ho sold 200 of his cabs for $r> apiece because ho said he could not afford to maintain them.

WALKER, - Muinr »f «fit« FFM E«tl*r«Mt Atmey, BiktnfltM ; A HOT, prosperity! I could be shot for saying that. Now that no one Is predicting- It, It may come. The first year of the depression It was the custom to deny that there was a depression. The second j-ear It wns called a readjustment, and folks said It would cure itself, no doctors needed. The third year It was admitted that something was wrong with something, but why worry? Now everyone Is trying to remedy It! tret's see what can be done right hero and now. In tho first place, the depresslpn Is not the disease. We had tho disease for years before; the depression Is llko a fever—just nature's way of getting rid of the actual disease. The fever Is always darkest before the dawn, if you'll pardon a mixed metaphor— , Sun Breaking Through And no on« disputes that, things were never darker'than right now! But the sun Is nhtnlnR through. The first few rays are practical suggestions about a 30-hour week; barter systems; money based on production Instead of gold; "Technocracy"; employment exchanges; and generally a sensible- humanitarian reorganization, a new mental atmosphere, a "new deal" (with apologies to F. D. R. and the originator, Stuart Chase). ' No one can accuse me of«-blind optimism. From the very start I expressed the opinion that economic con.- dltlons would grow more severe until the climax was reached this present winter. Think Way Out So it has been. Underlying the surface widlcations,' 1 . however, Is the vital force of awakened. Intelligent, vigorous thinking. Just as the real-cause of the depression was lack of thought, so we can think our way out now. But we can't depend on the other fellow to do our thinking. And we can't depend on the government, big bust- ness, political parties or anyone besides ourselves to lift ourselves, in person, out of this or any other depression, Business charts don't show U, but the mental attitude of the country Indicates that what needs to be done "1933 is calling you" THE NEW YEAH, with all its opportunities! When it calls, will you be available? A telephone in your home may mean every* thing. If it ran not a single household errand, • laved the family not a single step or minute, were needed in not a single emergency, it still would represent value beyond measure. Order a telephone now. Any telephone employee will take your order. ' TnoB PACIFIC TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY BuHlupsB Offico: 162<K Twentieth street Telephone SO new prosperity—a pros- will make the old one to build a uerlty that seem sick In comparison—IB beginning to be done. No one can at this time draw the plans in detail; but they are searching for tho answer, and, when the search Is made, the answer will bo found. History hears that out. No Charge Yes, out of this great world transition -will come a new civilization greater than any the world has ever .before seen. First, however, those who are unwilling to go ahead, will have to be left behind. They are being left behind. And they can thank Uiemselvea for It—no one else Is to blame. Now the State Free Employment Agency is like any other employment agency, except that It makes no charge to anyone. Wo have absolutely no connection with other state offices as far as getting jobs la concerned. We attempt to fill jobs according to ability to perform the work. We are not handicapped by having STAINLESS Same formula .. same price. In original form, too, if you prefer for COLDS OVI MIUQN M«$ USED YCAHIX to limit our choice of. applicants to those who have tho price of a fee. We play no politics and no favorites. We believe In courtesy to the public, rich or poor; and It Is our special pride that we analyze each applicant (as well as each Job) from every angle. Sound Prosperity In the past we have tried to create work. Now, that is difficult to do; It Is beyond our province; it is in the hands of the community. With the rich natural resources of Kern county there should be work for everyone. Oil, cotton, grapes, dairying, gold, cattle, general agriculture and mining all combine to build a sound prosperity! If we do not now see how to use these things for that purpose, then there should be a local economic plan-" nlng board such as Governor Rolph's unemployment committee suggests for the state. , W. A. Granfleld, chief of the state employment fluencies,.forseea the day not far distant when public employment exchanges will do a great deal toward creating work. The first public employment agency In the country originated In San Francisco, in the days of the forty-niners, and so tt Is fitting that when the "now deal" dawns, C«*lfornia should again lead tho way. Let us all look forward confidently to a day when by giving the other fellow a break, we will make ourselves more prosperous; when we will no longer hide in ratholes and then complain that there's not enough sunshine to go around!

The wcfoml flvo year plan hn's started officially, with tho advance publicity reduced notably compared with that accorded tho second plan In the Soviet press n few months ago. High government officials arc known to have considered whether 1033 might bo considered tin n bridge between the first and second plans, In an attempt to Improve tho existing Industrial structure Instead of trying for further "God" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon on Sunday In all branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass. The Golden Text wan from Psalm LXV: "Praise walteth for thee, O Ood, in Slon: and unto thco shall the vow bo performed. O thou that nearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come." Among the Bible selections in the Lesson-Sermon were these verses from the One-hundredth Pgulm: "Serve tho Lord with gladness: come beforo his presence with singing. Know yo that tho Lord ho Is God: it is ho that hath mado us, and not wo ourselves; wo nro his people, and tho sheep of his pasture. Enter Into his gates with thankEglvlng, and Into his courts with be thankful unto him, anil bless his name. For the Lord Is good; his mercy Is everlasting: and his truth endureth to all generations." One of tho pabsugea from "Science and Health with Key lo tho Scriptures," by Mury Raker Eddy, Includes tlie stuumeiits: "That God lu u corporeal being, nobody can truly affirm . . . Wo shall obey und adore In proportion as we apprehend Hie dlvlno nature and love Him und«rutundlni;ly, warring no more over tho corporeality, but rejoicing In the affluence of our God."
