E«tabliahed 1897 LITTLE THEATER CLtlB TO START HERE ON FRIDAY Organization to Open To Public at Hotel Next Week PLAYS TO BE STAGED Most' of Them, However, Will Be for Amusement of Club The l^lltle Theater movement has reached lola. Next'Friday evening, February 10, at 7:30 o'clock, a meeting will be held In the Portland'hotel dining room for the purpose of enrolUng - membership and forming the prt- .llmlnaiir. organization, .ajipolntlng. committees and the like. Later a second" meeting Will be • held at which a constitution and by-laws will be adopted, officers elected and a definite membership roll established. • ' Membership will be open to both men and women and It Is especially urged that there be a large attendance at the first meeting next Friday when ithe pun' and program of the organization will be fully explained. The Little Theater movement began a 'few years ago with a small but Influentlnl group of drama lov.- ers In : the city of New York who wished to do something, If possible, to promote the appreciation of really high c^ass drama, hoping in that way to: build up a sentiment which . would make It possible for the very best plays to be put on the stage with assurance of adequate support. The movement has-spread rapidly and now there are Little Theater clubs scattered about in ^cities all over tup world. A Good Time to Start. , It is believed that a Little Theater club can be oruanized in lola at this time wiih everv- prospect of .success. The Rev. R. D. Snuffer, pastor of the Pi-csbyterian phurch. and who has givr-na great deal of attention •to" dramatic art. has generously consented io act as coach and there are a very' considerable number of lola 'people who are not only interested *in the drama but have themselves i-eal dramatic talent. The purpose of the local club -a-lll be t6 produce simple ione-act plays, perhaps once a month, for their own entertainment, and then perhaps twice a year to put on a real play for the entertainment of the public. Any who think they might like' to join sucli an organization but wish (o have more'information about it may call up Mrs. W.- C. Wright, telephone 1346'W. and She will be glad to answer any questions. It was also pointed out that the object of khe club is not solely for the production of plays, but to provide a means whereby Its members can Ueam more of the subject of the th&ater in general. f More Appreciation. It wijl be a purpose of the organization -to provide a basis of knowledge of all the factors entering into the histrionic art. so that its members knowing more, can appreciate more t^e things which they are en- deavorJ>ig to accomplish. Papers will (be recta, bcioks-reviewed, and dis- 'cu.ssioris held covering subjects from stage liiechanics to criticisms of the theater. ! The Little Theater movement, experts say, has been fostered by the depres-sion. but is nevertheless a commendable line of activity. It results, they say. in a keener appreciation' of the better elements in the theater, and affords an unequalled outlet for the talents which would otherwise [lie fallow. A SOLUTION TO STATE FINANCIAL PROBLEM. . Topeka, Feb. 3 (AP)—From distant Muizenberg, South Africa, Tom B. Boyd, Kansas state treasurer, received today $25 from a former employe of the state who wished to reimburse the state for time she did not spend In "faithful service" when In 1916. or 1917 she worked In one of Its departments during a summer vacation. In a postscript to her letter, the woman explained: "When the spirit of God gets to housecleaning, he unearths a lot of burled things. This unfaithfulness to the state had long been forgotten. He has brought It to light and with joy I send you this did debt." The letter, and a check for $25, were forwarded to the treasurer by a missionary society. "If all state employes would do that," remarked Austin Logan, assistant treasurer, "the legislature wouldn't need to make any salary cuts."

Hawesr to give him priority over the March 4 crop of newcomers. Hawes, also a Democrat, was eulogized by members of both parties as he retired by resignation. Speaker Gamer announced that tariff revision legislation would not pass this session. The house Republicans had banded for an effort to raise the tariff walli to equalize the lowered value of Imports from countries with depreciated currency. Senator Wheeler (D., Mont.), arg-" ued before a house committee for his legislation to remonetlze sliver at a ratio of 1^ to 1, asserting that the nations of the world could not be brought back to the gold standard unless the!

May Depend on Last Testamebi . Denver. Colo.. Feb. 3. (AP)—Disposition of the large estate of Frederick G. Bonflls. whose dynamic career as publisher of the Denver; Post closed with liis death yesterdajf^ was unknown today and 'attoriffiys; who handled ills financial transactions said they were not empowered to say whether he made a will.: Mr. .BonfUs was regarded as one of the wealtliiest men in Colorado. The destiny of liis newspaper remained undetermined. Mr: Bonflls owned 51 per cent of the stock In the newspaper. Mrs. Agnes Tammen, widow of H. H. Tammen, partner and co-founder of the Post, holds 30 per cent and the other 19 per cent is possessed by the Children's hospital, to which It was bequeathed.-by Mr. Tanumn. Mrs, Tanunen Is en route here from Santa Borba, Calif. Executives of his newspaper and members of his family as well were unable to say what they believed Mr. Bonflls might have desired done with his holdings. Close friends said his esUte Uicluded, besides the newspaper, large .stuns In stocks, bonds, real estate, theater enterprises and diveisilled interests. Simple funeral services will IK held at 3 p. m. Saturday at the Bon­ flls mansion here and the body will be placed in a setting of marble beside the altar of the mausoleum in Falrmount cemetery. The Rev. Pr. Hugh L. McMenamin. rector of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, with the Rev. Fr. Henry POrd will conduct the serrioes. i^ce, sat down with President Juan Bautista Sacasa and mide his pledge of peace. Then the man who had: hunted and been hunted by Nicaraguan native soldiers and American marines since 1926 enjoyed the luxury, particularly for him, of a night's sleep In the palace. "Peace Is now a fact. Nicaragua entered a new; era when jthe last United States marines departed from our soil," he told this correspondent after his conference with the president and other government leaders. The siirewd general had kept one pledge and' government leaders were of the opinion that he would keep this one. He had often said that he would persist In his sanguinary struggle until the last United States marine had departed from Nicaragua. The United Stat&s marines, who for the most of] 19 years had been stationed In. Nfcaragua, completed evacuation of the country within two days after the Inauguration of President Sacasa, January 1, Only a few days before the last marines left, more than 20 were reported slain In an engagement between native guards and Sandlnlsts. A few Isolated engagements since caused/considerable doubt whether peace was at hand. The terms of the peace settlement were not made public. "I for nothing personally,' the general said. A protocol was brought here by Sandlnlsta emmlssaries less than two weeks ago, outlining conditions for a truce to "leave the hands of my (Sandlno's) representatives free to make peace in the most honorable way for myself, my soldiers, and the Nacaraguan government.'' There was no thought of "surrender," said his men. The general said he had control of all of his ofiBcers and men and did not expect any further trouble. After his return by plane today, he was to order them to lay down their arms. "This was a great day for Nicaragua," said Dr. Pedro Jose Zepeda, Sandlno's agent in Mexico City where the leader was once promised protection when sorely pressed by the Americans. pt. Zepeda was to retum here later to arrange final details of the peace. "Our fight is finished and this enables Nicaraguans to embrace each other fraternally and to be worthy of the moral respect of the whole world now that we have proved and will continue to prove that we are capable of governing oiUTselves alone," General Sandino said. "I have nothing against North Americans personally; let them come and work here. However, we should not accept them coming as our bosses. I send .my regards to the American people," Sandino said in a statement issued during the course of the peace conference. PROBE COSTS POSITION Secretary of Oldahoma Corporation Commission Resigns as Investigators Deive into Practices Oklahoma City, Feb. 3. (AP)—The secretary of tte Oklahoma corporation commission resigned today as state senate oil probers heard more testlmonypconccrning an Oklahoma City Insurance firm which witnesses say served as a "blind" for irregular oil dealings. i Ed Hicks Jri. the secretary named by a.witness who told of a purported imsuccessful plot to break j the proration system, quit, he sald,^ because he was mentioned In the testimony and because he did not desire to "embarrass" the commissioners. ' Before the committee, Harry Kessler, who said he sold Insurance for a time In connection with the local firm, but "got out" because he believed "thhigs didn't look on the up and up," testified he was told over the phone not to appear as a witness "pr we'll bum. you up." He did not know his caller. Kesslerialso said he was given" to understand by Ray C. Walker, of the Insurance: firm that Walker planned to raise money for the campaign of J. C. Walton, former governor and newly-.elected corporation commissioner. In another development. Senator S. Morton Rutherford of Tulsa, who has taken the lead In the probe, announced that E. R.

They will he quizzed concerning a charge by Phillip Flaxman, oil man, that a "deal" was to be made to raise $100,000 and break proration, Rutherford said. The committee went into executive session to question A. C, Fletcher, crude oil purchaser for the Globe Oil ti Refining company. Earlier, it turned from "hot" oil Inquiries to hear an till company executive testify that proration has cost his concern 2 million dollars a year. The resignation of Hloks was accepted In a statement In which the commission said the acceptance "is not taken by this committee as any reflection on Mr. Hicks." John J.

EARLY PASSAGE OF NEW MOTOR TAX BILL SEEN Senate Votes to Consider Measure Next Monday Afternoon APPROVED BY HOUSE Passenger TagS Would Be Cut to Half Price in Proposed Law Topeka, Feb. 3. (AP)—-Enactment early next week of the bill to slash automobile Ucense fees 50 per cent and revise the scale for trucks was predicted today by legislative leaders as the senate voted to consider the house-opproved compromise •motor tag bill Monday afternoon at 3 p. m, ^ Both Re^ubllcSn and Democratic leaders of the senate express belief that branch of the legislature would accept without change the house bill, similar to the one previously pa.ssed by the senate. Principal differences In the two mea .sure8 are In fees prescribed for motor trucks of light capacity. The senate bill would require fees of $7.50, $10 and $15 for trucks with capacity of 1,000 pounds or less, 1 ton and IVi tons respectively, while the house bill calls for fees on the three cla.ssincatlons of $5, $7.50 and $10. License fees for passenger automobiles outlined in the senate bill are identical to those In the bill which the house approved yesterday after the Republican members had succeeded in rejecting a Democratic proposal for a flat $1 fee applicable to all motor cars; A flat $2 fee propcsal also was turned dowii by the house. In accepting the plan calling for a 50 per cent slash in motor car licenses, house Republicans and Democrats joined in a compromise under which greater reductions were voted for light trucks than had been provided in the bill passed earlier by the senate. A.ssuming the senate will accept the house bill, the new scale of tag" fees could be made effective early, next week, thereby enabling motorists who have delayed purchase of their .1933 plates to obtain them at the new reduced rates. Base Rate of $4. Under the house bill the minimum fee will be $4, and it will be applicable to passenger motor vehicles weighing up to one ton. The measures simply cut In half the present $8 minimum, and the extra charge of 50 cents for each 100 pounds or major fraction thereof In excess of 2000 pounds will be reduced to 25 cents. The house bill provides the following schedule of truck fees: 1000 pounds capacity or less—$5, now $8. 1 ton—$7J0. (No one ton step in present scale.) VA ton—$10, now $15. 2 tons—$30. how $30. 2',-i tons-$50. now $37.50. 3 tons—$75. now $45. 4 tons—$100, now $70. 5, tons—$150, now $100. Each ton capacity in excess of five, $50, now $40. . The motorcycle fee will remain at $5. Penalty for Overdue Payment. Annual license fees are made due on January 1 of each year, and payable on or before February 1, with' a penalty of 50 cents provided for pach month or fraction thereof they remain iinpaid after February 1. Provision was made, however, that the February penalty should not be collected this year. < Provision is made In the bill for payment of refunds to those who purchased 1933 licenses at the higher rates. The bill was passed by the, 111 to 12, with Democrats recording all the negative votes. DOWAGER IS DEAD SIX PAGES M4 I THE DUCHESS D'UZES Damplerre, France, Feb. 3 (AP).
