Topeka, Jan. 30 (AP) — Five measures designed to reduce • governmental costs by eliminating township government, providing four-year terms for some public officers and permitting counties to consolidate, to hold, joint elections and jointly ad- dinister certain of their Institutions, are to be introduced in the legislature this week. Sponsored by the Kansas chamber of commerce, the measures include two proposals for constitutional amendments. Under one of the proposed constitutional amendments, to be Introduced In the house by Frank McFarland of Shawnee, the state ballot would be shortened. Terms of the -governor and lieutenant governor would be four i-ears with other state officers elective at the option of the legislature. The second would; permit reorganization of county governments to provide for four year terms and optional form of government such as county manager or county commissioner, eliminate township officers, and in counties with population of more than 140,000 permit drafting of a city-county consolidation charter. Three bills to be Introduced by Senator Webb of Pittsburg would permit counties to consolidate and also would give them the right to elect jointly one or more officers and to administer jointly their institutions such as Jails, county farms and hospitals.

Democrats joined with the Republicans in the birthday celebration, although no strictly Democratic organizations were -called into session. However, they intermingled with the Republicans at sessions of nonpartisan organizations, among them the woman's day cluh. Other organizations In session today included the Republican Service Men's club, the Young Republican's club, Kansas Women's Press association, and the Kansas branch of the League of American Pen Women. Members of the legislature joined in the spirit of the occasion. Leaders effected an adjournment this afternoon to permit members to participate in the various meetings. Arrangements were made for memorial services at the afternoon session of the Kansas Day club for Calvin Coolldge and David W. M vane. Republican national committeeman from Kansas for many years. Mrs. Mae Patrick of Satanta was a.ssigncd to conduct the services. Officers of the club were to be elected at the afternoon session.

Snuffer Applies Problems of the Rifle Range to Life "Just as a perfect score is possible with every new rifle, so is there 'a possible in usefulness and happiness in every new life that comes into the world." With that assertion, the Rev. R. D. Snuller,; pastor of the Presbjtcrlan church, formed the mainstay of a sermon addressed especially - to the members of Troop •A, 114th Cavalry, who attended the morning church service >-esterday in commemoration of the birthdky of the regiment; OfBcers and men in full tmlform attended flie service at the Presbyterian church and sat in a body, filling almost half of the north section of pews In the church auditorium. They were there' to mark the anniversary of federal- recognition of the organization, formed from several smaller units, in iJan- uary, 1925., i Mr. Snuffer, himself an ex-ser\'ice man and a former national gtiardsman, drew from his own first hand knowledge- of military life to make his sermon a direct appe'al to the trooiJers. His first comparison was the problems of the rifle range with the problems of life. Definite Goal Needed. "One of the things which we all know is the selecting of a goal, and the necessity of constantly pressing onward toward that goal. . . "^Vhcn we go onto the rifle range, we are confronted with a long line of targets. When we are firing for record, we know that a shot on another target may mean a 5 for some other man. but it means a miss and a red flag for us. We have to determine our target, be sure where we fire trying to shoot before we commence firing. How many men wjistc their energies by firing all up and down the long line of targets offered on the great range of life today—wondering why they . score only two or three hits during life. Plow many fire away at the WTong | target, with no effort to discover an' error and correct it themselves. . . Up to the Man. "Remember how you've laughed when someone blamed the poor score on the rifle? There's a p>ossi- ble in evcrj' rifle—it's up to the man who is taking "care of it and shooting it. Thereii a pas.sible in every rifle. Tl-iere's a possible In useful- life. We know how to get it. We can get it if we will. . ." DLscipline. with its requisites.. of authority and obedience, was also used by Mr. Snuffer to apply military principles to life, whether it be sDcnt in uniform or in civilian attire. - I • After pointing out a prerequisite of a good officer, who represents authority, and who demands obedience of his men. is that he have thelcon- fidence of his men, Mr. Snuffer said: "Christ has never issued a foolish command. And thousands upon thousands of his followers testify that no man ever followed Hlni implicitly but has reafQrmed donfl- dence in him. and love of Him.and his undving allegiance to Christ as his perpetual commander.' Dry Ice May Be Made of Chimney ^moke Cheaply Under Direction of K. U. Ifrofessor, Carbon Dioxide Refrigerant, Temperature 10^ Below Zero, May Be Manufactured Commercially, Chemists Hear.

The method is described by Prank E. E. Germaim, director of research and professor of chemistry of the University of Colorado. It was developed, he says, under direction of Professor Hamilton P.

(AP)—An explosion of undetermined origin early today blew out the front of the Luce trunk company's building at 1026 mm street and shatter^ windows in nearby stores. Washington, Jan. 30. (AP)— Brushing aside proposals for further hearings, the senate finance committee ' sent the Collier-Blaine 3.05 per cent beer and wine bill speeding back to the senate today with a favorable report. The Volstead modification bill was approved 12 to 5 within little more than an hour of consideration in executive session. Chairman Smoot said he would submit the committee's report today, which will put the bill before, the senate, re^dy for action as soon as the parliamentary situation permits. I , No changes were made in the bill as approved a week ago by the senate .iudiclary committee. The committee turned down Chairman Smoot's proposal for hearings and agreed to confine Its consideration to the revenue features, of the bill. On Revenue Only. Smoot said the vote to report the bill favorably was on its revenue features only, which hrovide for a tax of S5 a barrel. ' ; T Secretary Mills • appeared before the. committee in'executive session and estimated this tax would raise from 125 to 150 million dollars. Speed marked the actions of both houses of congress today, resulting in final passage of a one-year renewal for the currency expansion act. and one year continuation of the federal gas tax. as well as an immediate report back to the senate of the beer bill, and defhiite advance for several other measures. The house suspended its rules to rush through the Glass-Steagall bill, and a bill continuing for one year the federal 1-cent gasoline tax, and then undertook to pass similarly the new bankruptcy revision measure turned out by Its judiciary committee. The Giass-Steagall act. already passed by the senate, makes U. S. bonds eligible as collateral for federal reserve banknotes. A: vigorous attack on the farm allotment, bill was put before the senate agriculture committee by G. P. Swift, representing the Chicago packing intereste. He predicted the price of ham and bacon would double If hogs were covered by the measure. The bill, however, drew vigorous support of W. R. Ronald, Mitchell, S. D., editor wTio was one of the creators of the allotment plan. He advocated, however, that Its operation be put on a state aid basis instead of leaving Its administration to federal agencies. The senate banking committee received a statement from Secretary Mills opposing the Frazler bill to refinance farmers' debts at m per cent. Mills contended it would prove ruinous to the federal, land bank system and the federal reserve system. bustlon of liquid or solid fuels" as well. In fact the American chimney Is potentially the greatest source for this kind of "Ice." Hitherto most of the refrigerant has (been made from natural gas sources containing not less than 17 per cent of carbon dioxide. Chimneys were barred because they exhale an average of only 8 to 12 per cent carbon dioxide. The use of 75 million pounds of this refrigerant in the United States in 1931 prompted efforts to tap the flue gases. By the new process. Dr. Germann says, all except about 1 per cent of the carbon dioxide in a chimney Is converted into refrigerant. ' The fumes are compressed at from 1700 to 3000 pound pressure per square Inch In heat exchanging apparatus. Then they are permitted to expand, and this cools them so rapidly that a snowstorm of white carbon dioxide crystals flake out of the gas. This snow aids In condensing all except 1 per cent of the remahilng carbon dioxide Into "Ice." Water, one of the troublesome ingredients In chimney gases. Is squeezed almost completely out of the mixture by the first high pressure. In the semi-commercial plants it has not been necessary to "scrub," thai is cleanse, the flue gases further than squeezing out- the water. A chemical "scrubber" may be necessary. Dr. Gennann says, In full commercial manufacture. THREE CABINET MEMBERS SURE Roosevelt Busy Today on Task of Naming Rest I Of Official Body Warm Springs. Ga.. Jan. 30 (AP). President-elect Roosevelt today called In his political staff to select the personnel of his new government. As the Democratic war lords assembled the word got about that the cabinet will be built around three men who now appear to be certainties—Senators Glass, of Virginia, for Secretarj' of the trea.sury; Walsh, of Sjl^ntana, for attorney general; and James A. Farley, of New York, for postmaster genera}. Owen D. Young has informed the president-elect that for personal reasons he does not wish to be considered for secretary of state. With Young-making him.self unavailable, the field appears again wide open for secretary of state. The names of Norman H. Davis,,of Ne- York, an authority on international economies, and Bernard H. Baruch. of New York, economic expert, again are in the limelight of speculation. James A. Farley headed the contingent of Democratic chieftains who arrived today, and established quarters to work out the manifold task of picking thousands of men for the new Democratic government. Farley was accompanied by two secretaries, Frank Walker, Democratic treasurer, and Edward Flynij, New York party leader. Louis M. Howe, political secretarj' of Roose velt. preceded them here. It was this group that held high command during the presidential campaign and in meetings here long strides are expected to be made in the organization of the Democratic government. Mr., Roosevelt has said he will make .no cabinet announcements before sailing on Saturday for a fishing cruise In southern waters. There Is also reason to believe that the office of secretary of Interior still awaits the acceptance of Senator Cutting, of New Mexico, a RepubUcan Independent who supported Roosevelt In the campaign.

(AP)—A propas- al for a fiat 20 penrent reduction in 1933 real estate valuations was introduced in the senate today as its assessment and taxation committee reported adversely fnc house approved Cowden bill providing for a re-assessment of land this year, in 1935, 1937 and every four years thereafter. Introduction of the propasal. a .resolution directing the state tax commission to order the reduction, by Senator Dodge (R) of Salina. was in line with the senate tax committee's-plan. Chairman Coffman said. Senator CofTman said it was the opinion of the committee the reduction ishould be directed this year rather than a re-assessment made as the Cowden bill provides. The regular assessment of real estate is to be made in 1934. Under statute land is re-valued by assessors every four years. The Dodge resolution was imilied- lately referred to the taxation committee and Chairman Coiffman said the measure probably wouljd be reported back without change al -4 though he said, the 20 per cent cut proposed was mentioned principally as a "starting, point." In 1932 the state taxf commission ordered valuation reduction of 14 per cent on farm property and 8 per cent on Improvements on city Iiroperty. j._ Berlin, Jan. 30. (AP)—Adolf Hlti- ler, national socialist party chief- taint was appointed chancellor of Germany today and selected a cabinet which was,sworn hi immediately by President Paul Von Hindenburg. The Nazi leader has achieved his ambition, but actually it Is a compromise cabinet. I The president made him chancellor of Germany but surrounded him with' conservatives like Alfred Hul- genberg, the nationalist chief, Pranz Seldte, and Prariz Von Papan, the former chancellor and confidant of- the president. i On his part vHltler swore an oath of allegiance. to the RepubUcan constitution, reserving for himself in the cabinet the posts of minister of interior and minister without portfolio. As one more safeguard the president left the army in the hands of General Werner Von Blomberg, a regular army man who was military expert for the German delegation to the disarmament conference. Two Nazis In. Immediately the Nazis filled two of the most important political jobs with their.own men. Walthre Punk is the new head of the government press department and Clemens Lammers Is state secretary In the office of the chancellor. Political observers generally agree that the new cabinet will encounter opposition from organized labor, but that is to be expecXed. The Cenf trist reichstag members went into conference this morning to consider their pasitlon. . | The new cabinet depends upon Centrist support or toleration, the alternative to which probably would be dissolution of the reichstag and indefinite postponement of a nci^' election. As for the latter point], although the constitution stipulate;; an election must be held -wihln 60 daj-s of dissolution, some authorities: contend that article 48, the socalled "dictatorship clause of the constl^ tution empowers the president even to postpone elections in time of emergency if he considers that the Republic is endangered. Friendly Toward U. S. I The new chancellor's closest adi visers said he -will pursue a policy of friendship for the United States which, with the possible exception of Italy, he admires more than any other foreign country. General Von Blomberg. the defense minister, since he visited the United States in 1930, never has ceased to praise, that country whenever the opportunity .offered. Herr Seldte, minister of labor, ha.s read much about conditions iri America. Herr Von Kroslgk. the] finance minister, is well and favor-i ably known hi American financial! circles., and Baron Von NeurathJ the foreign minister, is familiar to. American statesmen. But against this pro-American lineup must be set the plans of Herr Hugenberg, minister of economics, for lowering interest rates on foreign private loans, and for sharply ciirtallhig Imports.

(AP) —Tlie Roose^velt idea for restoration of world trade and financial stabU- ity in return for reUef to the war debtors will [soon be .on its way the seas. ; In this remote southern mountain village the next president of the United States talked things over in plain language yesterday with Ambassador Sill Roland Lindsay of Great Britain who sails Tuesday lor London to relay the message. The announcement from the three hours conference simply said: "The British ambassador and Mr. Roosevelt .have had a wholly informal and urjofBcial but very satLs- factory conversation concerning tentatively the arrangements for the coming meetings in Washington. It is hoped 'that it will be possible to start these meetings early in March." No Change in Attltnde. That was ill. but there is no reason here to jjelieve that Mr. Roosevelt budged i n any way from his determination to talk separately and personally -wiith individual representatives of the European debtors on the question of relief. • Also, there is no sign to indicate that he intends to deviate from his announced policy to link the forthcoming world economic conference agenda with the debts conference. Because of his attitude it is regarded as Ukely that the pre.sident- clect indicatqd^ho would be glad to have Ramsay MacDonald, the British prime minister, come to Washington for the debts talk. However, Sir Ronald intimated, to newspapermen that thfs would be very difficult for Mr. MacDonald because of his manifold duties. Ready on Debts. Talking freely with newspapermen before the conference, the British ambassador recognized a con- Hict of ideas on debts and economic procedure between the two governments.'i Paraphrasing the recent British nope he said England was wUUng to [talk debts but so far as the economic conference FRED C.
