Then the hunt will get under way." "tts going to be.a real African lion hunt," s^id Wright. "Oun-bearers, beaters—but wait till you see. And the ending wlU be different." Wright's first home-made "safari" was brouijht to a sudden end when a deputy sheriff killed the two young I circus lionesses, which Wright had released for the hunt, before the Importer of African sport could even get a shot at them. "This time," Wright boasted, "everything is going to be bigger and better than before. The lions weigh 400 pounds each; They are savage, man-eating beasts captured In the wilds of Africa. The man I bought them from told me so." He said he bought the lions from a drcus farm.

AUTHOR ASKS A HALF-MILLION Chicago Woman Claims an Architect Jilted Her for Another Woman Chicago, Jan. 13 (AP)—Attorneys for Mrs. Alma Newton Anderson, author of several books under the name of Alma Newton, recounted today at the opening of her $500,000 suit against Ernest R. Graham, ari chitect, that a "violent and passionate ibve affair" existed between the couple for nine years. They met in New tork in 1916, Attorney Leo G. Hana said, and for nine years Graham expended an average of $30,000 annually upon her. Graham jilted her in 1925, the attorney said, shortly before iie married his present wife, a social leader. "Mrs. Anderson admired Graham very much," Attorney . Hana • said, "and he admired her musical talents and social standing. She had a fine education, was talented and gifted, and came from a distinguished Lou isiana family. A Kept Woman. "So Violently and passionately were they enamoiu^ that she agreed to set aside her social standing. Graham maintained her for years in a luxurious apartment and lavished wealth upon her." Being jilted was such a shock; the attorney said, that Mrs. Anderson was unable to continue her writing and musical work "and broke down physically and grieved, seeing the future only through a veil of tears." In 1927, the attorney said, Graham paid her $30,000 and she signed a release. Later agreements between them provided her with an assurance of $300 a month for life. The basis of the suit was a charge that Graham later "persecuted" her with detectives attempting to pry Into her private life. The suit charges tlie detectives offered money to her friends If they would supply Information derogatory to her. Detective Enters Picture. In May. 1929, Attorney Hana ^id. she met Thomas Maguire, a detective employed by Graham. He offered her $3500, the lawyer said, and attempted to obtain her agreement to leave the country under terms of a prertous release signed by her. She refused, and thereafter the alleged "persecution" began. Attorney Robert. Holt, counsel, charged in his opening statement Mrs. Anderson was mercenary, declaring she never was followed or otherwise annoyed by Maguire or at Graham's "direction.

Jan. 13. (AP)—The Emergency price-fixing plan voted Jiy the house In the hope of adding niillions to the 1933 national farm Income today faced two new obstacles—the senate and President Hoover. Senators for the most part reserved opinions pending a closer study of the Intricate allotment bill's provisions. But in some quarters there was strong opposition as hopeful sponsors began a drive for the needed majority. Even should this be obtained Democratic leaders have said they believe Mr. Hoover wUl veto the 'one-yeoT'plan. By a vote of 203 to 151, the measure was passed by the house late yesterday^he rumored friendliness of President-elect Roosevelt being a big factor in mustering this strength. High Democrat Opposed. But despite the reported desire of Mr. Roosevelt to see such legislation enacted, the ranking Democrat on the senate agriculture committee— Smith of South Carolina—already has indicated his ot^xjsltlon. The Republican chairman of that committee, MlcNary of Oregon, has questioned the wisdom of the plan and Borah of Idaho, without committing himself, also has expressed doubts about it. Nevertheless, prompti ' committee consideration of the house bill wlilch would pay a bounty to producers of seven commodities- wheat, cotton, tobacco, hogs, rice, dairy products and peanuts—was assured. It was after the last three commodities had been added to the original bill that 139 Democrats, 63 Republicans and one ^toner-Laborite united against 101 Republicans and SO Democrats to secure its passage. One hopeful sign cited by senate advocates was last year's action by that t)ody in passing a blU-4boug^ It later was recalled—containing a fotin of the domestio allotment plan. , On Pre-War Basis. The; house bill is Intended, for a one-year period, to put into the farmers pocket a cash return approaching a pre-war ratio with industrial commodity prices. It. would start in this way: For all benefited commodities except tobacco, an initial marketing period beginning 30 days after enactment and ending when the 193334 marketing year starts would be established. In this period, these minimum prices would prevail: Seventy-five cents a bushel on wheat and rice; 9 cents a pound on cotton; five cents a pound on hogs; 26 cents.a pound on butterfat; three cents a pound on peanuts. Whenever average market prices received by the .producer.dropped below these pricefr—as they aire now ^he secretary of agriculture would declare the difference l)etweeni the two and that difference would be levied as; a taX on processing. Collections jwould i>e paid out as a bounty to fanners on their percentage of domestic consumption, or, in the case of dairymen, on 80 per cent of their production. Different on Hots- Hogs would provide a slight variation. "While the bounty would be figured on a, b4ceni basts, the tax would be determiiied on a graduated scale mountlhg from.SVi to 4Vi cents a pound. And to participate, liog producers would have to market 20 per cent less tonnage. Once the 1833-34 year began, prewar parity prices would beconie effective for all commodities except hogs, whose minimum pride would 1)e 6 cents plus '.^cent for every io- polnt increase In the Index of factory employment. TObacco would be Included at this state, j All. growers participating would have to prove a 20 per cent acreage cut, dairymen could not increase production, and hogs producers would have to cut com acreage as well as tonnage 20 per cent. A presidental proclamation would be needed to continue the bill on any or all commodities a second year. Bulgaria Jubilant Over Birth of New Princess All the Nation Celebrates BirtK of First Child to Queen Joanna and King Boris, Whpse Marriage Culminated One of Most Appealing Romances in Europe. Sofia, Bulgaria.) Jan. 13. (AP)— All Bulgaria was celebcating .-tbe birth of a princess this morning— the first child of King Boris in and Queen Joanna. The mother and baby girl were both reported in ex- ceUent health. Although Bulgaria's constitution prescribes direct succession by the male line, the princess was welcomed with a warmth of affection reminiscent of the reception accorded Queen Joanna when her royal husband brought her home from Italy two years ago. The event naturally renewed speculation as to the religion in which any children of Boris and Poanna will be brought up. The law requires that the ruler of Bulgaria must be a member of the Eastern church and special permission of tbe UBBY MAY DROP CLAIM TO MONEY Father Says Singer May Try to Give Most of Estate to Charity Wilmington, Del., Jan. 13.

Reynolds, in a statement today said that his daughter! is willing to relinquish, except for a comparatively modest sum, her right toj a part of Smith Reynolds's estate.! Mr. Holman, who is at the daughter's temt>orary home near here, Issued the following statement ad dressed: j "To the Press of the Country: "Since you feel obligated to print something about 20 million dollars said to be the size of the deceased Smith Reynolds's ](my daughter's late husband) patrimony, you may as cwell print the following: "Mrs. Reynolds has offered to re- llnqulsli her child's right to the; Inheritance as far as she legally is able, and her own share as widow, save a comparatively modest stmt in each case, (and, these because she Is now deprived of her earning power) hoping the remainder may be devoted to public uses through an endowment established] in htT late husband's and his tsJSba^ memory.

' The princess' birthday falls just 17 days before her father's anniversary. The king will be 39 years old on January 30. Queen Joanna, who is 24 years old, returned to the capital only yesterday from Vama palace, where she had been staying since early in December. She spent, much of her tiriie knitting garments and frequently chatted with her parents in Rome by long distance telephone. The government was planning a political amnesty for exiles and the pardoning of prisoners in Bulgaria In celebration of the event.. THREE MURDERERS ARE DEAD Philadelphia, Jan. 13. (AP)—The 3-day-old son of Mrs. Llbby Holman Reynolds was removed to another room today where he "can't be reached except with an acetylene torch." John N. Hatfield, superintendent of the Pennsylvania hospital where the baby was bom to the wldOw of Smith Reynolds found fatally shot in his Wtaston-Balem home last July, said this precaution was taken because "we can't have people trying to see him all the time." Since birth the baby had been kept on the 8«venth floor nursery of the maternity department. It is BtlU in its "hot-bed," the modified incubator. . The length of time it win be kept In this cannot be stated, the superintendent said. Mrs. Reynolds has not yet seen her son. Dr. Norria Vaux, her physician, was quoted as saying that she can- no^ see her baby until she Is able to walk to the room where It is kept, probably by the middle of next week. The baby cannot oe taken out of its resting place because of the danger of changed temperature. The present heir to the Bulgarian throne is King Boris's younger brother, Cyril. Boris succeeded his father, Ferdinand, who abdicated i« 1918 and has been living since in the duchy of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha in Germany. One of the most appealing royal romances of Europe was climaxed by the marriage of Joanna and Boris. There were almost insurmountable religious bars to the union. After years of negotiation, the pope, by special dispensation, ruled the marriage possible. To the Vatican and to Italians generally, the Catholic marriage ceremony at As- sissi, Italy, October 25, 1930, was the real marriage, and Bulgarian rites which followed were merely a routine public function. There was three-day celebration when Boris arrived In Sofia with bis bride. U, S. ARMORY BURNS Historic Hall in Baltimore Destroyed Eariy Today Baltimore, Jan. 13. (AP)—The historic fifth regiment armory of the Maryland national guard was destroyed by fire early today, at a possible loss of 1^ million dollars. Only the thick granite walls, among which the flames raged for hours, remained of. the 30Tyear -old building where Woodrow Wilson was nominated for president in 1912 and Franklin D. Roosevelt ended bis southern presidential tour last fall. The fire,,of an undetermined origin, was discovered at 1:50 a. m.. and within a few minutes a general alarm summoned all the fire fighting apparatus of the city. Unable to bring the flames under, control, the firemen turned their attention to numerous small fires started by flying embers, scattered over a wide area by a 30-mlle northwestern wind. Colonel Washington Bowie Jr., commander of the regiment, said if; the walls and structural steel are seriously damaged, the loss will total 1% mjlllon doUars but if the walls and frame work survived the fire, the damage probably will be about $500,000. The armory was build in 1903 from an original appropriation of $420,000. . Hundreds of residents were driven from, their homes in the vlclrilfy by the danger of spread of the flames and by an order of Police Commissioner Charles D. Oalther for all buildings to be evacuated. The danger from explosion of the large amount oi: ammunition stored In the basement threatened throughout the fire. An effort to carry it out, after a hole had been broken In the wall, was futile so firemen laid several lines and flooded the cellar.

Jan. 13, (AP)—Established as an important center of community life, the school that President Hoover built in the Vir- ifi^a mountains tliree years ago will continue to bring the light of "book- lemln" to Dark Hollow. The president included the tract on which the schoolbouse stands in bis Rapidan camp gift to tbe commonwealth of Virginia for eventual Inclusion in the proposed Shenandoah National Park. . The jplan Is for the school to continue under state supervision as It has whl)^ being maintained by Mr. Hoover. ' Lawrence Rlchey, one of bis secretaries, revealing that fact today, said also that Ctiristene Vest, tbe specially-trained .teiacber who lias taiight the young mountaineers an amazing amount in three years, probably would stay on the Job. Events have moved swiftly since schooling came to tbe Bapidan on February 24. 19301 .

That road will bring children to school in a hurry^-boys and girls whd have bwwu wbat it neuu to tmd^ miles each day to learn from Miss Vest. So sequestered hai.been the life of the Blue Ridge mountaineers before the president came to camp here, they scarcely knew there was a world beyond the general store at (Mglersville. The school radio and telephone were novelties. All the twenty children, ranging in age from 6 to 16, who came as pupils the -first day had to start at the beginning. And what a start they had!

(AP)—A flat .veto of the PfaiUppine independence bill was placed by President Hoover today before a bouse of representatives primed for an attempt to override it. . Asserting the measure invited "grave dangers of foreign invasion and war, tbe president contended In a lengthy message that its terms would lead to the economic downfall of tbe Islands. Tbe United States, he said, would be given the responsibility without authority for maintaining order "In a degenerating social and economic situation." The vetoed measure provided for the creation of an intermediate government after about two years, if approved by the Filipino people. A ten-year period of economic and political weaning would follow, diu*- ing which American authority would be curtailed. Complete independence would be established in tbe eleventh year. Pointing to a "chaotic" situation In the Orient, and to the "immense neighbor, populations" near the Islands, the chief executive suggested that there be no immediate ctir- tallment of American power and that tbe pld>iscite on freedom "be taken 16 or 20 years hence." A^Unst Oer Intentions. "This legislation," tbe president said, "puts both our people and the Philippine people not on the road to liberty and safety, which we desire, but on tbe path leading to new and enlarged dangers to liberty and freedom Itself." Some of the arguments given by Mr. Hoover for disapproving the bill follow: 1. The Philippines economically are "absolutely dependent upon their favored trade with the United States," and tbe period during which tills would be whittled down and finally shut off is "too short, too violent." .2. Without favored entrance to American maricets many Philippine Industrie^ could not compete with nearby lower costs and standards of living, leading eventually to a flight of capital, dlmlnlshtog tax revenues and an unbalanced budget 3. American agriculture would be given "no protection of any kind during the first two years, and during, the following five woidd have "no effective protection." No Power L«f t 4. The civil authority of the United States In tbe islands would be brought "to a point of practical impotence," but with the American flag still flying would be "faced with tbe likelihood of having' to employ military measures to maintain order." 6. With the non-Clirlstlan population opposed to tbe controlling group, yet constituting a majority of tbe total population, "the maintenance of order in this considerable element" would be more difficult ttian at present. 6. The Philippine government has not bad sufficient income to support "even the Filipino scouts, much less an army or navy," while the United States now spends annually on a minimum necessary American military force a sum equal to approximately 28 per cent of tbe entire island income. 7. In comparison with neighboring Oriental countries the Philip- ptaes offer large areas of imdevel-' oped resources, and the "pressures of those immense neighbor populations for peacefiil Infiltration or forceable entry Into tills area are most "potent." '^estnlintlfin'' Scored. Tbe presideait pointed out that while tbe present bill would give the United States an option oil continuing its military and navid bases in the Islands after tbe ten-year, period, it would give no promise of maintaining independence against outside pressures except an offer to attempt "neutralization." "Other nations are unlikely to become parties to neutralization if we conthiue suCh bases," be added, and neutralization is a feeble assurance of independence in any event unless we guarantee It. That again is the perpetual engagement of the United States In their affairs. • "But with tbe Impression that these ideas in the bill convey it likely that tbe.
