(AP)—The estate of the late Mrs. Edith Rockefeller McCormick, once estimated to exceed 40 million dollars was reported by the Chicago Tribune today to have dwindled to the point where it was deemed necessary to cancel the $24,000 ' lifetime annuity granted Edwin Krenn, Austrian at-chitect. who was a close friend of the "world's richest woman." I In Ueu of the annuity Krenn lias been restored to his status as a principal heir, the newspaper said, but the estate i^ in such shaJJe that only a sudden return to' prosperous conditions, with a restoration of real estate- values, will prevent a writing off of all assets as a complete loss. ^ Following Mrs. McCormick's . deatn last August Krenn agreed to waive his five-twelfths share in her estate in return for the annuity, but .when the executor the Chicago Title & Trust company, started to examine the tangled condition of Mrs. McCormick's possessions. It was . learned that there would not be sufficient income to pay Krenn his $2,000 a month income. He was then informed that the annuity agreement was not practical and that Mrs, McCormick's other heirs were willing for him to re-a.ssumo his position as heir.

English Anatrix ^lissing: a Day In Flight Over Spain. Either Method Effective But One Must Be Used Now, He Says Hastened by the recent • warm weather, the time is at hand, right now for Owners of shade trees everywhere in Allen county tO; begin the war on canker worms,' according to Dan M. Braum, county farm agent. "lola especially has too many beautifiil trees to permit them to be ruined by these pests when by a small amotmt of work they can be saved,',' Mr. Braum said in an, interview today. "The canker worms were serious in the' early spring of ' 1932. They matured on the tifees, and they are now under those verj- same trees in the pupal stage. In a few days they wUl be changing to moths 'and climbing the trees. The male canker worm moths have been flying: about, which indicates that the females will soon be out," Mr. Braum continued. No Wings on Females. "The adult female canker worm d,oes not have wings and must depend on crawling up the tree. It usually selects the tree under which it was last year. Frequently it is the case that two to three hundred of these wingless moths tr>- to climb the same tree, and each of them will lay hundreds of eggs. Tlie females come during the warm evenings of early. Febniary. and they continue to come out until March. The eggs are laid very .soon after the moth comes out.' but the eggs do not hatch until the young leaves are starting. "Eveh'one is fa.miliar with the brown measuring worm and the expression, to take your measure for a new;coat.' These worms ire the cankcrl worms. All you need to do is to shake the tree and down they come. , The foliage of the tree is sure to; be damaged if the worms become plentiful. • "Spraying the trees with arsenate of lead at the rate of 2 pounds of arsenate of lead to 50 gallons of water win destroy the worms. If that is the way you wish to exterminate the worms, you must spray the trees early. The best way to protect the tree from this injury is to put a siicky band about the tree. Trim the bark so that it is smooth aboui three to five feet from the ground. Place a band of heavy paper about the tree, jand fasten it. The band sliould be' about 5 inches wide. If the bark is the" least bittrough, some old cotton batting should be placed under the band of paper. The formula for the sticki' material to use- on the paper is 5 pounds resin heated in 3 pints of castor oil. Bands Stop Worms, "The adult female canker worm does not have wings, therefore, it crawls up,- the tree to lay the eggs. When the tree is banded, the sticky material on the paper will catch the moth as it crawls up the tree. "The bands should; be placed on the trees at once to catch the first moth.: The worms attack the apple trees as well as the elm and many other fruit and shade trees. Remember: the worms appear on the same trees that they attacked last year."

Chicago, Jan. 28. (AP)—The, investigation into the affairs of the Illinois Life insiu-ance company, now in receivership, assumed a criminal aspect today following the arrest of .Ern«st J. Stevens, former official of the firm, on charges of conspiring to defraud it of 1 million dollars.

DEATH IN HARLEM Speakea-sy Brawl Results in One Death, Others Wounded New York, Jan. 28. (AP)—A man was killed and three others wounded during a wild melee. In which bullets roared and knives flashed in a Harlem speakeasy before dawn today. Sreaining women and shouting men fled from the place, leaving it littered with abandoned wraps and :pocketbooks. , A ; regular weekly "racket" or dance whs in full sway in the place when a, gunman sauntered to a table where Peter Morah, owner of the resort, was sitting with, two men and two women. Without warning he pulled out a gun and began firing. : Mpran. wounded in the thigh, tumbled imder a table. The next bullet hit David Feldman, 24, who staggered into a corner and died. Henry Clark, 28, another man at the proprietor's table, fell with a bullet in the head, and | then the gunman flung, away hisi empty gun and started for a rear exit. As panic sw'ept the place, several men closed in on the gunman. Near the entrance they got him down and jammed pen knivesi into his body again and again. Taken to a hospital he was identified as Joseph Fisher, 27. " " I A possible clue tci the shootinfe was in a crjTJtic letter foimd in Feldman's coat. "I do not want to be taken for a ride like 'J'," the letter said in part. The name of the wTiter was withheld by police.

Because he has set March 4 for the day when he wants all the data on the tangled question of government reorganization, there Is some speculation here that Mr. Roosevelt will call a^ extra session 'of the new congress at once if necessary. Dispatching Swager Sherley. an authority on govermnent expenditures, to Washhigton to take charge of the study of realignment and reduction of bureaus, the president­ elect told him "we want all the economy we can get."

First reduction of personnel; second, consolidation of government agencies; third, abandonment of unnecessarjt functions. Asked about elimination of some pf the navy^yards .l Roosevelt said this and other details would have to await the study. ; He did ermress favor, however, toward retention of the yards, if they icould be made useful In peace times, as necessities in national defense.

NO STRIKE RELIEF Ford Plants Still Idle as Briggs Labor Trouble Continues TAG FEES CUT IN HALF IN BILL SENATE PASSES Flat 50 Per Cent Reduction on Licenses for Pleasure Cars EUROPEAN CABINET SITUATION IN BRIEF. Detroit, Jan. 26. (AP)—Officials of the Ford Motor company today said .they expected the strike at the'Briggs manu- ._facturihg company plants to end Monday, and declared that "within six hours" after the 6.000 Briggs employes return to work Ford plants throughout the country, forced into suspension, will resume operation. Detr()it, Jan. 28. (AP)—Tlie strike in the plants of the Briggs manufacturing company which forced a suspension of operations by ).he Ford Motor company throughout the United States still was in effect this morning, although 40 men returned to their ijenchos at the Highland plant body plant. Approximately 100.000. workers in the "Ford assembly plants throughout the cotintrj- are affected by t.he suspen.sion, the Ford company announced, when the supply of bodies was cut. off by the Briggs plant shut-down. "While no statement was forthcoming from the Ford offices today, it was indicated unofficially the motx)r car assembly plants would be reopened as soon as the flow of bodies was resumed. The possibility this might be Monday morning appeared to be remote unless a geheral return by the body workers at the Briggs plant materialized later today. Leaders of 'he Briggs strikers called a meeting for late In the forenoon to consider the offer of the company of a gunranteed bbse wage. Those of the men who rcturn-d to work at the Highland Park Brisks plant entered without molestation although some jeers and cat calls greeted them as they passed Into the plant. Outside the Highland Park and the Mack avenue plant on the east side several hundred men were gathered, but state and city poli:e were there in large num'oers and reported no disorder. The company in announcing a guaranteed base wage yesterday said that only former employes of the plant would be. taken back until Monday morning. After that time, they siiid. the jobs would be considered open and would be filled with other men If necessary. Approximately 6.000 body plant employes were affected by the shutdown of the Briggs company and a suspension of certain departments of the,Murray corporation of America after the Ford company's announcement of a shut-down. MEXICAN LOTHARIO CAUGHT Armando Ortiz Supports Wife and 18 Giri Friends on Thefts. Mexico City. Jan. 28. (AP)—Generosity to the fair sex was Armando Ortiz's ruination, police said today, as they accused him of supporting a wife and-18 girl friends by brazen thefts. He gave each of .them a separate home, police declared, and in his desire to make thern comfortable his thefts, grew bolder and bolder until finally he was captured attempting a particularly audacious one. Each of the 18 friends received a stolen radio, his wife told authorities. Impartiality was Ortiz's motto. To prevent jealousy he called at each household at stated intervals. If he paid his visit to one girl at noon on a certain day, then the next week he. would appear at 2 p. m., and so on in rotation. The wife and 18 women friends were held today for examination. TO HOUSE MONDAY House Approval Would Start Fees at $4 Increasing by AVeight Topeka, Jan. 28. (AP)-With senate approval given to a flat 50 per cent cut, the automobUe fee reduction issue will center in the house upon the reconvening Df the legislature next Monday. Senate passage of the tag bill and house rejection Of 'a Democratic sponsoired proposal for repeal of the "branding Iron" party affiliation law late yesterday marked the close of the third week of the bieimlal sesr sion. Before passing the bUl. the senate removed from the measure the schedule agreed upon by the roads and highways committees of both branches of the legislature wlilch called for a scale of fees based on the age and weight of passenger motor cars. It adopted the Warren aihend- ment which simply cut in two the present $8 minimum prescribed for automobiles weighing . up to 2,000 pounds, and the 50-cent charge for each 100 pounds or major fraction thereof above one ton. The schedule WTitten into the: bill which finally passed 36 to 2, is a $4 minimum with 25 cents for each 100 poimds or major fraction thereof above one ton. \ Landon For 60-Ceht Base. Governor Alfred M Landon had recommended a minimum fee of 60 cents for vehicles weighing up to 2.100 pounds, plus 75 cfcnts for each additional 100 poun(is.; The tag bill has been made a special order of business In the house for next Wednesday afternoon j^but in view of the senate passage of the measure there is a possibility it will be taken up before then. As passed by the senate the Will retains its scale of truck fees ranging from S7.50 for vehicles with a rated capacity of 1,000 poimds or less to S150 for five-ton trucks plus S50 for each additional ton capacity. Availing themselves of their slight, majority, the house Republicans rejected the "branding iron" law repeal bill, on virtually a strict party vote In the first test of strength in the house at this session. A Party Vote. The vote on the motion to kill the bill was 64 to 51. Two Democrats, Carter of Hamilton and Davidson of Sedgwick, joined with the Republicans in rejecting the measure. T ^fhile one Republican, Hicks of Mitchell., voted with the Democrats. There' are 65 Republicans and 60 Democrats in the house. Aside from a few routine bills, no major legislation was completed during the third week of the biennial session. However, the senate, working if aster than the house, turned out several important measures. • I . Among! them were the MiUer anti- nepotism bill and the Dale bill to give Governor Landon control of the state highway directorship. The senate also adopted and sent to the house the Warren resolution proposlhg: submission of a constitutional aniendment restricting franchise In bond elections to property taxpayers. Both, branches passed nearly Identical bills to permit taxpayers 'o redeem land bid in by counties for non-payment of taxes without penalties and other added costs. The house also paiised and sent over to the senate the Blount bill authorizing grade school districts to buy textbooks for indigent pupils. A wide range of legislation has been proposed in a total of 442 bills introduced thus far! The number is .siigljitly under the total at the end qf the third week of the 1931 biennial session, when 451 bills had been introduced.

WHEAT PROSPECT IS DARK Farmers in Western Part .of Kansas Consider Plowing Under. Topeka, Jan. 28 (AP)—Prospects in many portions of the southwest for even a fair wheat crop have vanished, a biilletin issued today by the Santa Pe agricultural development department said. \ • An extensive belt extending from Nebraska through the western third of Kansas and weli.into Texas has such poor prospects, the bulletin said, that growers were seriously considering plowing imder vast acre­ ages. f Ey the Associated Press.). The Paul Boncour government In France and the Von Schleicher cabinet in Germany, both of which have had much trouble duiing their camparatlvely brief periods In office, have fallen. , . In France the lid blew off with pressure against the government's program, for balancing the budget by means of drastic economies and heavT taxes. General Von Schleicher stumbled over ; the perennial obstacle which is Adolf Hitler. President Von Hindenburg called in former Chancellor Vori Papen, who preceded Von Schleicher, Instructing him to put together a cabinet which will be supported in the reichs- tag. Von Papen was not appointed Chancellor, but it appeared certain that either he or ! Hitler would get the job. President Lebrun of Prance called in the party leaders, but there was no definite indication as to who would become premier. Edouard Herrlot, M. Paul-Boncour's predecessor, was a leading candidate, and Edouard Daladier, many times a cabinet minister, was another. The Irish Free State, completing the count of votes in the general election held last Tuesday, was assured that the Fianna iFail party will remain In power with Eamon co Valera, its leader, as president of the . Republic. VON SCHLEICHER CABINET RESIGNS Chancellor Quits After Ruling Germany for Only 56 Days Berlin, Jan. 28. (AP)—Chancellor Kurt Von Schleicher, heading the twentieth cabinet since the establishment of the German republic, resigned today after governing only 56 days. : This period 'was shorter than that of any predecessor e.xcept the last imperial chancellor. Prince Max Von Baden, who lasted 30 days wiicn the revolution swept him into Ihe discard. General Vpn Schleicher realized from President Paul Von Hindenburg's refusal to invest him with power to dissolve the Reichstag next Tuesday that ho no longer enjoyed the confidence necessary to steer the Ship of state solely on the president's authority in the face of a hostile Reichstag. .The resignation.of the entire Von Schleicher cabinet was accepted by the president after he had refused the chancellor's request. Baron Franz Von Papen, preceding chancellor, was charged to report on whether a cabinet could be formed on 1 parliamentary majority or other bases, if the majority was un-, obtainable.' General Von Schleicher named three possibilities for solving the political crisis in his interview today with the president. First he suggested a government backed by a majority • of parliament. This could be achieved only by making Adolf Hitler, national Socialist leader, chancellor. Secondly, he proposed a minority government resting upon "the broad stream of popular support." This also could be formed only under a Hitler chancellorship with the toleration of rightist parties. His third suggestion was formation of a presidential cabinet Independent of parties. Such a cabinet must; txs vested with extraordinary powers. Von Schleicher solemnly warned against aDPointing 'a presidential enhtnet restlnif In reality upon one political party. This statement would apply to Baron Von Papen. whose only support .was the Nationalists. Hermann Gocring, speaker of the Reichstag, announced this afternoon that he would not call the session scheduled for next Tuesday until the cabinet situation is straightened out. Instead of the Reichstag council of ciders will meet on Tuesday to discuss the program.

PADL-BONCOUR GOES DOWN 0(( TAXATION ISSUE French Premier Resigits After Defeat by TumiS- ; tuous Chamber ^ $50,000 COST HOURHY Fall of Government Will I^ecessitate Credit oii ^Huge Daily Deficit i Paris, Jan. 28. (A?)—Tlie government headed by the veteran bu^y- haired fighter, Joseph Paul-I^n- cour,; resigned today a few hourj after; being overthrown on a taxation Issue by a boisterous, shouting chamber of deputies. S President Albert Lebrun called for Immediate consultations with party leaders In an effort to select a new premier. The Paul-Boncour cabinet feu at dawn^ fighting for a bala^iced budget, with former Premier Edouard Herriot vainly trying to rally (Support. The vote was 390 to 193.,^ The fall of the 40-day-old govern- ! ment,: Finance Minister Henri Cheron said, would cost the country. $50.00(3 an hour and on Tuesday Paul-Boncour, who will carry, on current business, or his successor, must ,ask for Febniary credits on the basis of a million and a quarter dol- - lars daily deficit. J , President Lebrun summoned/the presidents of the senate and chamber,' L^n Blum, leader of the! Socialist party which catised the overthrow, \ Herriot, and other ies^ers fqr coiisultatlons. Socialists Desert Him. • The 59-year-oId premier, who.^had been war minister under his predecessor, • Eduoard Herriot. lost i his post because the party with which ' he formerly was affiliated, the; Socialists, deserted him. They broke up the radical Socialist and Socialist combination which had siistained his cabinet as well as that ,of Herriot for six months by . refusing to accept a 5 per cent: increase on Income and other general taxes. • ; Edouard Daladier and Camllle Chautepps, ministers imder both Herriot; and Paul-Boncour, 'an^ Jules Jcaneneny, president of. the senate, were considered likely to be called upon by President Lebnm to form a'new government. ^ There seemed' httle chance Jthat Herriot, who made a last-minute plea for' the taxation measure, would receive an invitation again. He . was declared in unequivocal terms that he will not resum^ the office until France has agreed to make the month-overdue debt Interest payment to the United Sltates.. No Move on Debts. The Socialists, who turned against Paul-Boncoiu- this momlng[also had bolted from the bloc supporting Herriot! on the debt issue. Paul- Boncour had not attempted to break the deadlock on the debts slnte he ^ formed his cabinet December; 18— four days after the memorable "early morning chamber session which refused to pay the United States on the due date. • . But the stocky little premlef was threatened by many pitfalls in attempting to put over his cabinet's plan for balancing the budget.; The all-night session bb^an yesterda,y evening with the cabinet encouraged by the chamber's favorable vote of 343 to 243 in the aftesnoo^ to take up the government's', program. • i . But tHe unwillingness of the Socialists to accept the higher ta? rate shattered the bright prospects for survival. [ The chamber was packed a?id In great confusion when Paul-Boncoiir, as famous an orator as the clotiueht Herriot, ro .se to stress the opinion of ihe catoinct that the tax In^reaso ' wai essential, ; . A Cold Reception. "That is why I ask the majority— • will it accept or ask other n^n to .submit other solutions?" he shouted. The Socialists greeted his • appeal with icy silence. i This was the conclusive Indication of the result of the vote whldi was, soon to follow and nullify!a, week's work by Finance Minister Henry Cheron to unite factions 1»- hlnd the program. J 1 The chamber finance commltiiee a few days before had cut the golv- emment'^ budget - projects jwhlch called for 10 billion francs In- new taxes and' economies, to 2,530,000,000 in new taxes and 915 million francs in economies. Finance Minister Cherbn was dissatisfied and sought restoration of the original budget** pro-. gram. ?. ' The premier, however, seeing tro 'v- • ble aheadv agreed to compromise: it the chamber would keep tha new taxes In proportion to the economies in government-expense. /. j Crisis to the Last ? \ Cries and sliouted arguments punctuated the long debate; as | it reached the controversial matters early this mSming. The chamber had jworked steadily through routine matters, leaving these dangePDUS |ls- sues for the government to ttie last.
