Proposes to Protect U.S.Industry Against Loss if Resume Work (United I'reiti T.caicd Wire) W ASHINGTON, Jan, 0.—A nation- Wide relief program under which ho government would guarantee In- Itidtry against Ions on condition that t start normal production machinery again was suggested to Congress today by President Miller of the Reconstruction finance Corporation. Mller, Utlcn, N. Y., banker, proposed tho program at a Senate manufacturers' subcommittee hearing at which ho and other officials (if tho corporation de- 'onded the corporation's policy In disbursing relief act loans. Tho program, ho Bald, had been evolved by Pred C. Kent, a prominent economist. ' Work Only Solution Miller said he did not wish to orltl- clae tho corporation's activities In the administration of relief, or to commit his associates to any plan, but that did feel work relief .was the only practical solution of tho unemployment, problem. Miller Mild his own unemployment aid autlvltlos In Utlca prior to his association with the corporation had oonvlnced him of the desirability of work relief. "I found tho people wanted and demanded work as a right," he said, "and 1 think they are entitled to it. "The reason this Is Important here is that ns this thing grows, thcro are people formerly willing to work-who refuse work relief when they find they can get as much relief without work." Calls It Best Plan Senator Wheeler, Democrat, Montana, said ho agreed, but objected that work relief was "expensive." Miller considered work relief was cheapest In the long run." Ho said ho did not believe accelerated public work construction would bo sufficient. Senator Smith, Democrat, South Carolina, asked: "Can you conceive of any greater Socialism than the dole?" "t think it Is the worst," Miller replied. Pomerene on Stand Another witness before the subcommittee was Chairman Atlee Pomerene, president of tho R. F. C. Relief loans to 36 states and two territories through January 7 totaled |M:t,flti3,2GG, Pomereno testified. This Included »120,446,984 directly to states and $14,207,281 to political aub" divisions, ho said.

Doctor Einstein, according to United Press dispatches froni Bor- ln", has accepted and Improved upon the .fundamental equation of relattv- ty through, tho Lorentz transformation. . ' 'Tho most .Important discovery in years," said associates of Doctor Einstein, when informed he had submitted to the Prussian Academy of Science a now paper revising and amplifying Ills theory of-relativity to include the Lorentz' transformation. Lorentz' Formula Tho Lorentz formula or transformation 'tolls how to , correct measurements made by an observer In. a moving system, In oth6r words, tho equations necessary to solve tho problem of relativity—how fast does an object travel through space? Is the observer standing still or moving with or ngalnnt the moving object? The •Lorentz transformation places all of this In a mathematical equation.' Scientists for years have puxsled over'the quantum theory and relativity, theory, Seemingly they are alike, but they did not connect.. If Doctor Einstein has accepted the fundamental connecting formula of the Lorentz transformation,. physicists a California Institute of Technology believe, It will connect the two theories and greatly strengthen the latter. . Doctor Einstein and his wife are scheduled to arrive at- Los Angeles harbor at 4 p. m. today. Doctor Einstein's visit this year is possible through the Overlaon der trust of the Carl Schurz Founda tion of Philadelphia, As an emissary of good will, Docto Einstein will give a public address 01 German-American relations before thi Association of Student Body PresI dents'of California in tho civic uudl torlum on January 23. *-»-• ' NEVADAN-APPOINTED WASHINGTON, Jan. 9.

Tho amount of .-ore being put through' the plant has ihcreased'to the- extent that the normal output' of the- Tropico mine, fro which tho cyanide plant was originally Intended, cannot be cared for until all of the extensions now under way are completed. • Burton states that the gold mining Industry is at its best In times like the present, Inasmuch ns the price o'f gold has not declined, while the commodities have reached low levels, thus making t the gold worth half again Its normal'Value. The work necessary In making the- required changes at Tropico IB conveniently arranged by securing the services of the men who are operating leased claims. Burton says he has no difficulty In finding men of almost any desired trade' from the group. While tho men experienced at mining are naturally having the greatest success In their operations, almost without 'exception all of them are making a fair living. And the fact the Industry Is 'providing work for more than one hundred people Is a-source, of satisfaction for all. The oro brought to Tropico plant averages In valuo from $16 per ton to $DOO, with most of It averaging around $20 per top,. .'..•••'•>' <$> Polish Engineer "Gpjdihalcejtf >ts Given Jail Term •'(Associated frets Leased Wire) i; x PARIS,: Jan. 9.—Z.

They satisfy! That wouldn't mean a thing if smokers found out that it wasn't so. Nobody can fool Jhe people very long. But a great many smokers have smoked Chesterfields for a long time, and they know that they taste right. And so they say to their friends, "If you want a cigarette that really tastes better, try Chesterfields!" Chesterfields taste oetter because they are made of mild tobaccos, that have been aged for two years. And there is just enough Turkish in them . . . but not too much.

The mine has .been opened down to 150 feet, revealing large bodies of mill ore of excellent quality, which will • keep the, new crushing plant In operation while further development Is prosecuted. By reason of the softnoMS . of tho ore, the values of which are mostly in free gold, the plant, It la asserted, will handle tons in hours. It is .planned to operate the property through the shaft, and two drift trun- nets on different levels whlqh will open up a second largo vein almost paralleling the Shanghai ledge. *• Pac-Western Starts Deepening of Well Pacific Western Oil Company has started deepening of the Avenal No. 1 well on section 86, 23-17, in Kings county, a project whlqh It took over from 'Knudaen & Schmidt 'several weeks ago.
