VOLUME LXVH Official Amei and Story County Paper AMES. IOWA. MONDAY, AUGUST 7, 1933. United Praaa Wire Service MO. 31 TWO FRENCHMEN FLY TO NEW RECORD CUBA CONGRESS MEETS TO DEAL WITH MIKING President May Force Workers Back to Jobs HAVANA <V£) — Congress was called Into special session Monday to deal with a strike situation so serious that American-arranged political peace negotiations were racing against the outbreak of a revolution. The powerful ABC revolutionary organization was understood to be sending thruout the country from a secret radio station directions to the public for its guidance and statements that the strike should be made the "August revolution" to depose .President Gerardo Machado. The government was attempting to "blanket" the broadcasts. Many government Employes were expected to join Monday in a strike that has affected almost every line of normal activity. President Machado summoned congress to consider the strike in extraordinary session at 3 p. m. Monday. He is expected to ask suspension of constitutional guarantees, to allow the government to usr. the army in forcing .strikers back to their jobs. Publishes Decree As a preliminary Machado caused to be posted thruout the capital a decree announcing the existence of an "Intense alteration of public order" here and thruout the country. He authorized the police to turn over their authority to the army whenever the situation required and authorized the army to assume authority without notice if necessary. Bad as it was here, the strike situation was worse in the provinces. Tn many towns it was general, affecting all workers. Many towns reported riots. . Police Fire Wildly Police motored thru the streets Saturday night firing wildly. Political opponents said they were seeking to justify suspension of constitutional rights. The firing continued Sunday. an* at least two persons were killed. The police clubbed str^srs in an .effort to make them re- rae work.-The United Press correspondent saw one 12-year-old boy knocked out with a police club for carrying-Jbread in the streets. Members of the ABC organization asked householders to put all lights out if th? police or porristas fsecret police) again began indiscriminate firing. American Ambassador Sumner Welles has conferred frequently with President Machado. People of conservative tendencies saw but one immediate hope of solution — early success of the mediation Welles -arranged between the government and opposition parties. Finance Cepartment workers, public works employes and sanitation department men were expected* to join the strikers Monday. Physicians threatened to-strike at noon Tuesday. Start and Finish of Stratosphere Attempt PHOENIX. Ariz., <1I.E>—Arizona voters Tuesday will ballot on proh, Ibition repeal and nominate a democrat to succeed Lewis Douglas who vacated the state's only congressional seat when he became director of the federal budget. The nation's youngest state which recently celebrated its 21st birthday probably will become the 21st state in the Union to ratify repeal of the eighteentL amendment, because of the absence of dry convention delegates on the ballot. Prohibition forces who were unsuccessful in obtaining enough signers to place their candidates on the ballot have attacked the constitutionality of the election by a lawsuit. The stratosphere ballcen in which Lieut. Com. T. G. W. Settle was to try for a flight 10 miles into the upper air, rose ghostly above Soldiers' field in Chicago, above, as it was inflated. But less than 10 minutes later it was sprawled"across the C. B. and Q. railroad tracks three miles away, as shown below. A defective valve is believed to have forced Stftle to land, the carefully planned flight a fizzle. The balloon was not seriously damaged, and Settle is expected to try again.' ALEX HE QUITS Test Your Knowledge Hoversten to Continue Furniture Store Announcement of the retirement of Alexander'Henderson from the furniture business in Ames, after 36 years in business in Story county, was made Monday. Plans for an auction sale to start Thursday also were announced. The sale will be conducted by the Bechtel Sales company, and will continue at 2 and 7:30 p. m. daily until the furniture stock is sold. Elmer Hoversten, associated with the store for the past two years, expects to continue the business if a suitable location for the store can be established. Mr. Henderson's retirement comes at this time partly because of his impaired health, and also because of expiration of the lease the store holds on the building at 328 Main street, at Burnett avenue. Mr. Henderson is the father of Lester Henderson, Story City mortician and furniture dealer. In 1897, he joined 0.

Employers Must Have More Business —Johnson WASHINGTON, <UJE>—The government sought to throw new power behind thje National Recovery drive Monday by appealing to consumers to "spend for re-employment" but to buy only from the man who displays the blue eagle of NRA. "It is what we buy and have and use that makes the increasing business upon which the whole program depends," Generay Hugh S. Johnson, leader of the recovery campaign said. "No employer can go on increasing payrolls without increased business. The part of buyers is mow to buy or this plan will be a failure." In addition to the launching of the "buy now" campaign, a busy week-end at NRA headquarters brought these developments: 1. Johnson expressed belief that "we will clean up a!l existing strikes" under the truce proclaimed by President Roosevelt. He said the arbitration board' would begij work at once to adjust disputes. . -"• 2. Deputy NRA administrator Whiteside threatened to withdraw blue eagles from ^Indiana grocery stores which 1 were reported planning to limit" store hours to less than 63 ;hours a week. Shortening' hours would be a violation of tie presidential agreement to spread employment, Whiteside said in a telegram to the president of the state retail grocer's association. 3. President Roosevelt an^oun- ced .the government wherever possible would adjust costs under the NRA program. He promised to ask congress to reimburse next year those whose contacts cannot lie changed now. 4.

NRA Grouo Discusses Business Hours Pact of Ames Merchants The Ames NRA.. campaign executive committee, organized last month under instructions from General Hugh S. Johnton, admin- strator of the national recovery act, met Saturday night for an informal discussion of NRA activities in Ames. The committe° is waiting further instructions for conducting an active local campaign. These I instructions are expected from Washington, but may come thru a state NRA advisory committe which has not yet begun to function. The discussions Saturday night concerned agreements among Ames retail merchants relative to shortening hours of business on a uniform scale, while at the same time employing additional help to conform to the blanket agreements which many merchants already have signed. The committee was of the opin- the United States at 4SO.OOO.OOO bu- ; Project clubs will present a mass shels for wheat, 190.000,000 bushels ,' exhibit of their work, each club under domestic requirements.

Praising that city's cooperation in the drive, he continued"Spend and Get" " / "All this movement needs is local leadership. The plan is sure. "We will be out of :the depths, of this depression by :winter if only each ' community will seize the chance, that the president has given it and—as Cleveland has done, as New York is doing—make one strong pull—one long pull—one pull altogether." He gave sharp warning to employers who are displaying the blue 'eagle but have not complied with terms of the presidential agreement or modffication authorized for specific trades. "Do not trifle with tbat,hird," Johnson cautioned. "In the confusion of early days a man may get away with it. But the day of reckoning against an aroused public opinion is sure." "This is no time to hoard," he admonished. "It is no time to save money. a time to get things. Buy the things you need. Spend for re-employment. If you don't spend now and get something you will spend later for taxes and doles and get nothing. "It is no boycott for people who are sick of this curse of depression to patronize those who are working to get us out of it." — •$ Nations Object to Propaganda of Nazi Group BERLIN (U.E)— Germany refused Monday to accept protest of Great Britain and France against the Nazi propoganda in Austria. An unofficial report said the French ambassador this morning and the British charge of affairs Monday afternoon had made presentation to the foreign office. Germany's viewpoint was that no violation of treaty had occurred and that the recent four power European peace pact was not applicable to the rase, therefore the representation* on Austrian-German relations were inadniissable. State Revokes Driver License of L. Roberson The driver's license of Leland Roberson, 17, of 11.14 Wilson avenue. was revoked by the state motor vehicle department Monday. as a result of an accident in which five persons were injured Friday on Thirteenth street. Ed Murray, inspector of the motor vehicle department, took up .the license. He said the revocation was on the grounds of reckless driving and failure to report an accident. Roberson had made no report, of the accident personally. Others involved in the collision, however, reported the accident to police, who in turn filed a report with the state department. Mr. Murray said he had investigated the accident because state property and state employes were involved. Roberson collided with ant Iowa State college hayrack, ion that the real objective of tlie NRA effort is being overlooked. This objective is the reemployment of unemployed store clerks, laborers, artisans and tradesmen. Issues Statement As a result of the discussions, Mrs. Adolph Shane.chairman of the Ames NRA executive committee, Monday issued the following statement on behalf of the committee: "The committee feels that the success of the NRA depends very largely upon employers trying conscientiously to live up to the spirit of the covenant. Those who have signed the blanket code and display the blue eagle should not only carefully observe the hours prescribed ^nd not fall below the minimum wa"ge prescribed by said code, but they should carry out in good faith the terms and intent of the agreement. by giving addition- (Gontinued on Page Two) U, 8.

(U.E) — Paul Codos andf Maurice Rossi, with the world's i distance flying record apparently" broken, flew toward Rayack, Syria Monday night. The message that the aviators were over Syria wat timed at 9:17 a. m., CST when th» flyers had been in the air approximately 54 hours since their takeoff from New York without a stop or refueling. Rayack is the central airport of Syria and has a large lauding field. "We intend to fly until nightfall and land at Rayack," a message from the flyers said. Army planes accompanied them over Syria, presumably guiding them to the landing field at Rayack. The fliers apparently had covered more than 5,700 miles since leaving New York .so that i£ they make a safe landing at Rayack, they will have eclipsed the existing record of 5,340 miles. They had flown from New York to Paris in weather so bad that for much of the time they could not tell their position and on thru France, Germany. Austria, Hungary and Czechoslovakia. . They passed over the Aegean sea toward Asia. For their record to be official it will be, necessary for the fliers to make a safe landing. , An accident w«uld ipean LUMBER YARD BURNS MAQUOKKTA (U.P)— Fire caused by lightning destroyed the land Fischer lumber yard here Monday.
