Pittman described his re- i vised measure, about which he' talked with the president andj eight or 10 democrats on his committee Friday, as more ot a "come and get it and take it! away in your own ships" pro-j posal than a "cash and carry"! bill. This, he said, was because: the bill made no mention ofj "cash" but provided foreign! purchasers of arms and other goods must show title transferred to them before departure. He intimated title could be transferred on short term' credits. ; "Nobody wants any hearings! and I don't believe there is go-] ing to be any filibuster in the' Senate," Pitiman told reporters.

Matthews has accepted chairmanship of a committee in charge of recruiting volunteers for sewing and knitting groups. In the recruiting work she will be assisted by Mrs. A. R. Vestling and Mrs. Ray Cartier. Persons interested in assisting with the work are asked to communicate with one of the three members of the committee. Other committees are at work arranging for workrooms, supply of needed materials, etc. Start in October Preparations are expected to. be complete so that actual local relief garment production work C-an start about Oct. 1. Persons having materials which might be contributed to the cause, or \yho wish to make cash contributions for purchase of such materials, are asked to communicate with the Red Cross headquarters at the courthouse. Primarily, new materials suitable for children's dresses and shirts are needed, it being considered likely that .some individuals may have pieces of such materials lying around their homes unused. Nc special campaign for funds will be staged at this time, Mr. Landin said, it being the present aim of the Red Crass to get a volunteer organization created and in readiness for such relief demands as the future may bring. Stocks, Mortgages Come Under Tax LANSING, Sept. 23.— (fP)~ Chairman Melville B. McPher- •son of the state tax commission said today that corporate stock and chattel mortgages will be taxable in 1940 under the new intangible tax law, and cannot be rendered exempt by the payment of a specific tax, as can some other classes of .securities. Mortgages and land contracts upon which the mortgage tax has been paid prior to Sept. 29, which is the effective date of the intangible tax law, will be exempt from the new levy, along with bonds and other obligations secured by indentures upon which the specific tax imposed by an act of 1913 has been paid prior to Sept. 29. McPher.son said telephone calls and letters which had deluged his office disclosed a "misunderstanding" as to what classes of securities could be rendered exempt by payment of a specific tax. He explained tnat corporate stock, unlike an indentured bond, is not a secured obligation. RECAPTURE OF GIT! SHANGHAI, Sept. 23.—(/P)— Chinese officials declared today their troops had recaptured Kaoan, annihilated a Japanese force that.occupied the city last Wednesday, and drove back the Japanese figlitlng machine along the entire Kiangsi province front. (A Hongkong dispatch quoted Chinese officials as saying resistance had stiffened throughput the Central Chinese provinces, and that Japanese had been halted in Kiangsi province, along the Yangtze river valley in Hupeh province, and north of Changsha in Hunan province. (The Chinese told of regular and guerrilla warfare penetrating Japanese defenses around Canton in the past week and said 2,500 Japanese were killed. (Japanese army sources acknowledged there had been raids around Canton. They reported 0,000 Chinese killed and 700 captured in the taking of Kaoan. The Japanese explained their forces, after moving into the city, pressed on toward towns to the southwest.) President 'Can't' Talk on 3rd Term HYDE PARK, N. Y^ Sept. 23. — (/P) — President Roosevelt smilingly turned down today | an invitation to reply to a sug- i gestion by former Governor Alf i M. Landon of Kansas that he | announce to the country that he did not want a third term. Reporters clustered around him in a hay field, where a new library soon will rise, showed the president an excerpt from Landon's statement that the "greatest single conj tribution" the chief executive i could make in the present troubled situation would be to tell 'the country categorically he 1 did not want a third term and , would refuse the nomination if ; it were offered. i The president said he had Inot seen Landon's full state- I ment and would be unable to | comment. i He added that he was sorry, i but that he had to protect 'himself. Landon was quoted by The ; New York World Telegram in a copyright interview as favoring adjourning all party politics but asserting it was up to the president, to insure such ! adjournmvnt by removins him- jself from the 1940 picture. The name Anthony Ogsodof- chik was tattooed on its owner's i arm for easy reference when he | needed to spell it for someone. No Football Team, So Students Strike SCRANTON, Pa., Sept. 23.—(/P) —Lack of a football team at nearby Throop high school brought a strike of 400 students and a warning that the strikers will be treated as truants if the "outrage" continues. The strike started Thursday but an "armistice" was declared Friday night at School Director Frank McGowan's suggestion. The armistice was short-lived. Today the students threatened to 'strike again next Wednesday if they don't get a football team by then. "It's outrageous!" exploded School Superintendent John J. O'Hara. "Entirely unjustified! No request was made for a team to the school board, myself, teachers or the athletic director. "We'll take measures against these strikers just the same as we would against any case of truancy." Escaped Woman Convict Captured DETROIT, Sept. 23.—(/P)—Mrs. Betty Baker today was starting 30 days of solitary confinement and resuming her life sentence in the Detroit House of Correc- j tion from which she escaped Monday night only to be recaptured Friday by Detroit police. Mrs. Baker had served more than two years of the sentence for the slaying of Clarence Schneider, her .sweetheart, on : June 29, 1936, in an automobile on a road near Ann Arbor.
