BAKER TO HEAD PACIFIC HIP American Honored at Banff Session Banft. Alta.. <t'.P>—Newton D. Bak^r. secretary of war for the United States in the administration of President Wilson, Tuesday became general chairman of th« Institute of Pacific Relations. Baker, long a leader in movements to better international understanding, urged the conference to intensify its efforts in providing scientific data regarding the nations of the Pacific "The root of all international conflict," Baker declared, "is. lack of understanding. It should be the duty of the Institute to direct its energies toward supplying an intelligent body of public opinion. "No nation can long persist in policies which conflict with organized public opinion. That is at once the strength* and the weakness 1 of modern civilization." Baker stressed the adult educational movement as one of the world's strongest bulwarks against international misunderstandings. "When the world realizes tiat the process of education must nev- stop, that man must either progress or deteriorate, we will have taien a long step forward," said the new Pacific institute leader. Baker will direct efforts of the institute to raise its unofficial status as the chief source of accurate and impartial material concerning the Pacific. He characterized the institute as a strong force for peace in the far east. Dr. Sophia Chen Zen, leading Chinese woman delegate, told the institute that western missionary efforts in China are doomed because her race "js not a religious one." "Cultured Chinese bitterly resent the Implications of missionaries that they must be saved from a heathen state," she declared. Dr. Zen, a prominent Chinese writer, added that "second generation missionaries' in China realize the situation and are urging their churches to confine their efforts to the medical and educational fields where they have real contribution 'to make."

Medalie was summoned Monday by the New York county grand jury in an unprecedented action to elaborate his charge that New York political leaders are allied with gangsters and racketeers. The grand jury went over the head of Tammany-controlled , district attorney's office **n the summoning of Medalie for examination Monday and its investigation will be conducted without the aid of the customary representative of the county prosecutor.

All boys desiring lo R° are to be at WASHINGTON TUB — A torren of miscellaneous internal revenu payments unsurpassed since war time enabled the federal govern ment to live within its income in the first seventeen days of August Some economists forecast as a re suit that the peak of the depres sion tax burden has been reached Statistics for the 17-day period available. Monday - indicated tha internal revenue collections in August, exclusive of income taxes would reach the highest level since war days. Increased business ac tivity and new taxes, especially on beer, account for the higher revenue. In the first 17 days of August $88,873,198 poured into the govern ment's treasury in beer, cigarette gasoline and similar taxes, agains $68,274,966 in the first 17 days of July. July's miscellaneous interna revenue quota was the heaviest for any month since August, 1922. Total income from August 1 to 17 was ?123,823,259, while "ordinary" expenses were $123,732,428. In addition, $83,920,663 was spent for "emergency needs," but this wil. be paid for by amortization over a long period and is not counted as current expenditure under the bud get. The treasury is receiving funds at the rate of more, than $16,000,000 a month thru taxes on the manu facture and sale of beer; $15,000,000 from the cent federal gasoline tax, and approximately $40,000,000 from levies qn the manufacture and sale of tobacco. From the present rate of acceleration/ government economists forecast an income of $1,250,000,000 in Internal revenue exclusive of income taxes in the current fiscal year, ending June 30, 1934. In the last fiscal year, $557,858,123 was derived from this source. Included in internal revenue collections is the 5 per cent dividend tax and the capital stock tax voted by the last session of congress to help finance the recovery program. But tho new emergency taxes account for much of the increased revenue, collections from regular taxes also have shown a steady increase since March. From July 1 to August 17 this year miscellaneous internal revenue collections amounted to $201.952.871, compared with $75,968.935 in the corresponding period last year. Income taxes fn the period this year were only $19,368,612 against $22,415.615 a year ago. In view of the steadily rising tax revenues and prospects of a new reservoir of taxes from repeal of the ISth amendment, many economists bplipve that the country's tax burden will begin to decline soon, as conditions approach normality. The upturn in business has removed many worries from treasury officials who had visions of further heavy increases in taxes last March, when they undertook to bring government income in line with expenses. Many of these problems have been solved automatically hy increased taxes resulting from greater business activity. flJTATE CENTER 1 STATE CENTER Aug. 19— Among those who huve gone to Chicago from her« the past week end to visit the Century of Progress World's fair nre: Mr. and .the church at S o'clock, prepared Mrs. Elmer H. doodman and son, Uor the camp. «Doles and vprnon Hamm, Mrs. N. Y. Assembly Approves Death In Kidnap Cases ALBANY, N. Y. (U.E) — New York states special legislature acting upon recommendations of Governor Lehman, has approved a bill providing a maximum death penalty for kidnaping. The action was a direct result of the abduction of John J. O'Connell jr., nephew of the politically powerful O'Connell brothers of Albany. Tiie measure was transmitted to the governor for his signature. His approval was assured despite elimination of one provision of his recommendations which would have made payment of ransom or partic ipation in negotiations for the re lease of a kidnaped person a felony iiffo HEAR MEDALIE Invites Attorney To Name Names NEW YORK <U.E?—A-rebellious grand jury excluded a representative of the Tammany district attorney Tuesday and investigated the connection between machine politics and racketeering. ^George Z. Medalie. United States attorney, who startled the United States senate inquiry into racketeering by declaring he could name four New York city politicians associated with rackets and racketeers, was invited to give his evidence despite the disapproval of assistants of District Attorney Thomas C. T Grain. The grand jury action was almost without precedent. Altho New York law gives grand juries power to investigate whatever, they, please, even a district attorney, they ordinarily follow the paths which tbe district attorney chooses. Grain, who has been under fire repeatedly for inactivity, obviously wished to ignore Medalie's charge and his willingness io "name names" before the grand jury. Monday the grand jury, after a stormy session during which shouting and table thumping could be heard thru closed doors, invited Medalie and Justice Frederic Kernochan of special sessions court, who made similar but more general charges, to testify. Medalie accepted the invitation. He told the senatorial committee he could name more than four, but the four he bad in mind "stood out." fAOXTBUB mmmm**ntm — • .^^^^^™ Clark Score* in ' Court Hearing on Right to Position DES MOINES «IE> — A defcnse Point that insurance commissioner E.
