(Associated Press Leased Wire) DURANGO, Colo., Jan. 7.—A "moving mountain" derby was under way today in southwestern Colorado. Carbon mountain, three miles southwest of Durango, on the move for the last three weeks, has developed competition from another mountain on tho John Conway ranch nearby. A 200-foot fissure discovered today on Conway mountain, which has started a similar action to that in Carbon mountain, while a largo portion moved 250 feet to the southeast. The new movement has set up u theory of geologists that a burning coal vein started the phenomena. The Conway slldo has. moved u considerable distance. Both Carbon end Conway mountains are on what U known as "The Great Hogback/' • fold that constitutes « closure for the oas fields "on the Ute dome. George Gil more, mining engineer and geologist, nnd R. S. Blatchley of Los Angeles, who has made an exhaustive geological survey of tho southwest, both eatd today the movement on Carbon mountain was duo to tho adjustment of a fault at great depth* Other geologists consider the action a surface nature and entirely local. With the appearance of tho 200-foot fissure In Conway mountain, a close watch is being maintained to ascertain If the actions are taking placo on weakened structures. Whatever force IH behind tho Carbon mountain phenomenon has not slackened, and millions of tone of material which started down tho southeast slope of tho mountain are steadily moving toward the valloy floor, - and with H roar that can be heard for mllea, avalanches continue to crush down the north face of the mountain. * Man's Purse Light; Bandits Beat Him (United Press Leased Wire) LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7.—Angered icause he yielded only a little change, four bandits today beat Irving Blowers Into unconsciousness and then tossed him on the Pacific Electric railway tracks.

And when they have finished they hope to have an all-Inclusive roster of racketeers, or. something like the names of 760 persona known as hoodlums. Under orders from Mayor Anton J.' Cermak the police were hard at work examining some 50,000 "bad character" records In an attempt to • have the hoodlum catalogue -complete by tonight. It is to contain the names of the "small-fry" gangsters, as well as those of the higher-ups who disdain to be bothered with going after "small money." It is understood that the list will Include the names of women as' well as the men. Behln'd this latest hoodlum-listing Is Mayor Cermak's determination to drive out of Chicago the racketeering elements before beer Is legalized by Congress (If It ever is) and particularly before the opening of the Century of Progress In June when the city Is to be host to many thousands of visitors from all parts of the globe.

(Associated Pre** Leased Wire) PASADENA, Jan. 7.—The coldest place known about this little planet, says Doctor Beno Gutenberg, geo- phj-slclstf is Just about 10 miles above the equator. At that point the temperature has been measured at 150 degrees below aero, Fahrenheit. Colder temperatures have been produced in laboratories, but Doctor Gutenberg was speaking of 'natural tempera- j tures. , . ! Strange to say, he reported, at the same altitude abovo tho polar regions, the temperature Is not so low. Another strange thing, he reported, was that from that altitude the higher one went the higher temperature'he would find, until at 200 miles or so It would be well over 1000 degrees. He told t of the latest research work about the strathosphere resulting in conclusions that there exists about 40 miles up A big 1 blanket of otone, with a temperature of about 200 degrees. * Thl», together with the deter* mlnatlon that oxygen exists at least 100 miles above the earth, has been ascertained by observations of aurora. In fact, aurora as high at 600 miles Indicate ex. Utenoe of oxygen at that eleva*, tlen. ' The ozone blanket, he explained, also is a sort of sound-proofing for the earth. Sound waves bounce back from it, he says. Aa far as strathosphere Is concerned, he said the average temperature at a height of 10 miles is about 60 degrees below zero, and that while the higher altitudes register temperatures of heights that make men perspire , to think of them, there really isn't must heat up there because the molecules are so far apart that the heat energy is low.

(Associated Press Leased Wire) NEW YOUK, Jan. 7.—The first Week in tho new year brought no change in the trenorai complexion of business and trade, but confidence is manifest In many qua.rters"that 1933 will record a substantial recovery from tho depression, tho weekly trade reviews said today. "Business seems to be relieved," asserted Bradutrcot'H, "that 1932 has become history. With the exception of tho.Ho who feel that the old order is doomed entirely, everyone seems to feel that 1932 has been the worst phaso of the battle against economic adversity. Commodity prices. In spite of tho sharp, decline during the last weeks of,the old year, are still above the lows of the year. • The drop in the past . year was 1C.9 per cent against 21 per cent in each, of .the preceding; years. ' "The combined index of business shows a similar growing;} with the passing year of depression. Failures have shown a much better record nt the end of the year than they did for tho previous year. Among other series that hold their own over the low point of the year arc carload- ings, automobile production, cotton consumption, bituminous coal production, bond prices, gold stocks, and bank deposits." • Dun's said: "Resumption of business following the year-end recession is gaining momentum. In some directions It is the impression that mod* erate progress will be In evidence during the first quarter, with a more Definite forward movement toward tho close of the period.'* COLLIER BEfR DILL CRITICIZED BY DRYS WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 7. (U. P.)— Speaker Garner today emphatically placed his full nupport behind the proposal to raise additional revenues throuRh Increased Income taxes as agreed upon at the New York conference with President-elect Roosevelt. "I would be jniffhty glad to see It (the Roosevelt conference tax plan) reported and passed by the House," tho speaker *mld. Garner's declaration came at a time •when other leaders were seriously considering alternative plans- of taxation. Muny are convinced that the program to levy the heaviest rates In peace time hlntory cannot be. pushed through the present Congress. The speaker himself, although will* Ing to "go down the line" for the Roosevelt accepted plan, admitted the possibility that n rebellious House might refuse to balance the budget by Increasing the tax .burden' on persons of small or medium Income, RaitlMs Ovar Plan Both House and Senate-are .admittedly reslJft^f* over the proposal, A Btern battle is expected In the ways and means cpmmlttee before the In- come tax measure Is even reported to the HouHe, A proposal to levy an additional |m- poRt on dividends IN gaining headway, nnd some Ulk of reviving the politically dangerous general manufacturers sales tax. Garner reminded that if tho income tax boost does not find favor "there nro 49 other ways 'of gQttlng tho neoewsary funds." "You must remember this is a practical proposition," he warned. The speaker took occasion to clarify a statement mado yesterday In which he said he "could pugveit taxes that would be less painful" than tho Income tojc Increase. Alternative Plan This, ho said, In no way indicated that ho would repudiate tho New York "agreement," but rather that he would have an alternative plan If the House rejected the first proposal. "The question IH getting so much revenue," ho added. "I don't caro how you get It. Tha thing Is to get It, It was suggested up there at the conference that to broaden the base of the Income tax and to raise tint rates wan the beat way of meeting the deficit. Someone said you could get $203,000,000 that way and there was no objection." Meanwhile drastic governmental savings, another phase of the Democratic budget-paUmclng plun, were being pushed with the posibllity that Veterans compensation might feel the ax of federal economy. » The conference agreed -to reduce President Hoover's budget eat I mute H by ?100,000,000, and It was learned hero that cnngrcnslonal loader* may find a portion of thl« appropriations for tho ministration. Privately many wets expreaa* fear that the dry a have the best of the constitutional argument, and that the Supreme Court would aet the bear bill aside if It were, enacted. Dttplte thla poaslbHIty, and the itrono probability of a presidential veto, thay are determined to pram the measure. . Dunford declared 3.2 per cent "Is substantially'the same as pro-prohibition b%er which was commonly known to bo Intoxicating." He said thin was shown by a department of agriculture study In 1017. "Beer represented 00 per cent of the volume of the liquor traffic prior to national prohibition," the attorney continued. "No one questioned that' when tho Eighteenth amendment was adopted, least of all the brewers, that it wan intended to prohibit the manufacture nnd sale of beer. "The people did not go to tho trouble of amending the Constitution to prohibit 10 per cent only of the liquor traffic and to grant the brewers & monopoly of the remainder." . Cltea Teata Dunford cited laboratory tests made S n medical students by Dr. Walter R. UleR of Ynle. Ho quoted Miles as having concluded that: " "There is no longer room for doubt in reference to tho toxic action of al» c coholic beverages as weak' a> 2.75 per cent by weight." He pointed out that 3.2 per cent brew is 13 per cent stronger than that used by Miles in the experiments which led to that finding. As for ndentlstfl who have test!- * fled that 3.2 per cent beer was not Intoxicating, Dunford said some of them - had.qualified their evidence by stating that they based their statements upon a "healthy ad,ult aocus-- tomed to drinking a moderate amount of beef." Others he said, admitted that the toxic effect depended on whether the beer was taken on a full or empty stomach, also on age, sex, tolerance to use nnd other condition H. The conHtltutlon was not adopted simply to protect the average healthy adult who has established a tolerance for alcohol," Dunford asserted, "but to protect nil classes, Including the young. - immature, nnd those most susceptible to the narcotic, habit- forming nature of alcohol. "Under this bill 3.2 per cent beer would be sold without restriction In the corner grocery, at soda fountains and nny plnco whatsoever, and be purchased by nil classes, including women nnd children." Dry Lawyer, Blafne Claah n Andrew Wilson, another prohibl- bltion organization attorney, was in- turrupted by Chairman Blatne, who suggested that dry objections oottld be met by making the beer bill read that alcoholic beverages "shall be.pre-* sumed to be Intoxicating only when It contains,in excess of 3.2 per cent by weight. , * "No, that would not do and T shall demonstrate that fnot,", Wilson replied, citing a Wisconsin case In which ' oourt« had determined to "take Judicial aotlco of boer." "Oh, that waa bock beer," Blalne Bald. "I presume you are familiar with book?" Wilson replied: v "I have never taatod it, eilr." Witness Applauded TJie gallery of prohibitionists which Included ni&hop Cannon, Jr., applauded tho witness.. WlUon' said thero had been "considerable difficulty In getting authorities to enforce or attempt to enforce the national prohibition act.""I am glad you aald enforce'," Blalna said, don't contend that It forced."
