BOARD LEAVES THOROMAN JOB OPEN FOR 1933 Superintendeht Submits No /Application for Contract Renewal SERIOUSLY HURT FLEMING RETAINED Junior High Principal Also Given Contract After Economy Move - As an economy effort, the lola school board announced today that no city superintendent of schools ' liad been elected for the next school year, therjeby failing to renew the I t;ontracl licld for the last 12 years i by A. M. foreman. In a scries of meetings held dur- / ing the first part of the week, the Ijoard decided to create the vacancy at the head of the school system and iiU In at the lower side if it is found Itiat the work now done by Mr. Thoroman, John Fleming, and A. E. Garrison cnnjjot be done by the last two men. Fleming, principal of the sonlor hlRh school and dean of the junior college, was reelected at the - R .'ime salary which he is receiving 'tj^ls year, $2G35, and Garri.son. now pVlnclpal of the junior high school was also reelected. His duties and . Iris salary, however, are not s))ecl- fled. Failure of tho boai'd to renew Mr. TJioromnn'.s contract con.stltutcd n»^lther a'di.snil.'i.'ial nor a resignation.- Charles Punk, president of .the board, and Mr. Thoroman .(oined In - .saying today. It wn.s understood be- f.ore the tiieeting that the superintendent's reelection was highly improbable and as a result. Mr. Thoroman did not submit an application. No Hard Feelings. ' ^Mr. Thoroman said today that he wfil leave his past next August with "absolutely no hard feelings toward anybody." He .said that he told the teachers in a meeting this week that \ "if they would continue to give him ; tlifeir best efforts for the re-st of the year." everything would turn out splendidly so far as he is concerned. He said that he has no jjlanis for the future as yet. Mr. Funk gave it as the opinion of th«j school board that if it is found ' jpotsible. Mr. Fleming and Mr. Garrison will carry on the duties they have .had In the past and possibly share the work which Mr. Tlioronian lias been doing. He said that if such a course Ls found impossible, it 1^ considered likely that a grade scHwl 8upcn ,'isor will be retained, suhbrdlnate to Mr. Fleming and Mr. Garrison, with a correspondingly smaller sa,lary. Mr. Fleming would act" as superintendent of the entire r school system. "Xn any event." Mr. ! Funk .said, "th^ board estimates that more than , a thousand dollars can be sa\jed annually." ' ' Record a Credit. ~ Mr. Thoroman came to lola 12 years ago and has been head of the city: school sy.stem ever- since, a lon^r tenure lhan any other .superintendent has ever had. For that reason, if for no other, his friends feel that his record is a creditable one. • ' Previous to hus re.sidcncc licre.the ^.supqTlntendent was at the'head of Vc e pouncil Grove school.s for .seven year's, of the county higli sciool for four years, and secretary of the state school book commis­ si )n if or six years.

The Allen County Farmers Holiday a.ssoclatlon will hold Its first meeting since ILs organization last week this Saturday at 1 p. m. Instead of being held In Memorial hall as it was previoasly announced, the meeting will be held In the M. W. A. hall over ilie Fairmont creamery. Tlie creamery is ono-half block north of thb square on North street. The primary pui-poscs of the meeting this week are to perfect the organization and to ' complete enrollment of members. It was pointed out by L. R. Snodgrass. secretary of the association, that mem- Jjcrship is not limited to farmers alone, but that every pyerson who is interested in the return of prosperity through Improvement of agricultural conditions is not only eligible but earnestly, invited to become a member. Ladies are also especially invited to attend the' meeting, it was announced today after it was learned that some doubt existed last week as to whether they would be welcome. Tlic meeting this week will start early and be concluded in plenty of time for those who attend to'return !to their homes before it is too late. Last week many of those who were at Memorial hall were forced to leave before the meeting was over, but it was promised today that such wi!I not be the case Saturday. There will bo two or three speakers on tho program. OUie Sutherland, chairman of the county organization, .said today. He said he wa.s not at liberty to divulge the name of the most prominent one who has promised to attend If It is at all possible for him to do so. but if he does appear, Mr. Sutherland .said hi.s speech would be the best hoard in this count.v on farm subjects for .some time. It is also planned to have the committee which took the mortgage resolutions to Topeka report Saturday. At the meeting last week, potl- tioiLs wore circulated asking J. Lee Rcleford, and Senator F. J. Oyler, Allen county's state representatives, to lend their .support to any legislation aimed at a two-year moratorium on all mortgages. Including payment of interest as well as principal. These petitions were taken to Topeka Tue.sday by Mr. Sutherland. Mr. Snodgrass. B. N. Baker, and Sam Knox, and their report will be heard Saturday. Mr. Sutherland is especially anxious that every - towTiship in the county be represented at the meeting. - . , Gamer Predicts Passage Under Suspension of The Rules Washington. Feb.." .16. (API—the^ senate today adopted the Blaine resolution for repeal pf the.prohibi­ tion amendment, with protection for dry states from liquor Importations, ratifications to be by state conventions. It now goes to the house. Only this morning Speaker Garner predicted that if the resolution were adopted by the senate In the form that it finally was, it would be approved by the house under suspension of the rules on Monday. The senate vote! on the 13-year- old ; eighteenth .amendment was marked by tension, the floor being crowded by members of the house of representatives who stood behind the many senatoi's seated so quietly in their chairs answering their names. Before the final vote, on which two-thirds was required, the senate by decisive majority votes rejected one after another of attempts by Senators Glass (D. Va.) and Reed (R. O.) looking to outlawlnt; the saloon in the constitution. The vote on the Blaine resolution was 63 to 23. By 46 to 38 It turned down Glass' endeavor to substitute the whole of the Elaine resolution with one by him to make the federal government and the states concurrently! responsible for outlawing? the saloon. A two-thirds vote also Is required in-the house before the resolution can go to conventions in the states for action, and anti-prohlbitlonists in the house lost no time in saying the margin would he forthcoming. If it is, then the repeal question goes to the states for the first time, with ratification by 36 required within seven years to remove the amendment. It does not go to the prcsidcni for action.

(AP)—The flood of propos.ils for now legislation wa:" shut oft today in the legislature after members had tossed 1,273 iu>w bills Into the hopper, but the gates were loft open wide enough to permit Introduction of commlttec- snonsorcd me.n.suics. Nearly one-fourth of tho l^tal n\imbcr-^319 bills to be exact—were offered yesterday, the fmai day for IntroducUnn of measures sponsored by indlvldi'.al members. The house received 1.12 and the senate 127. Veterans around the- legislative hnlls said the record for the number of bills Introduced during a sln- ule day were shattered by yesterday's avalanche. Included v;erc bills to carry out Gbvomor Alf M. Landon's suggestions for a downward revision of maximum tax levies by all taxing units and to abolish the public service commission, substituting for It a .corporation commission which also would take over from the banking -department and the charter board the supervision of speculative securities sales. The tax levy bills were offered by Senator Harlan fR) of Manhattan- and Representative Bloss^ "(Rj of Cowley, While Representative Rhodes (R) of Marshall presented the corporation commission measure. New In.spection Department. Senator Bradncy (R) of^Columbus introduced 11 bills along the lines of Governor Landon's recommendations calling for establishment of b new department to take, over the work of various inspection departments, some !of = which would bo abolished, among them the hotel commissioner, vehicle commi.ssioner. fire marshal, oil inspector and board of review. Another of the major bills introduced In the big field day came from the house fees and saiaries committee which proposed sta;i.utory limitation of the maximum salarie.; payable to teachers, principals, superintendents, and other employes of the public school sj-strm. Oiair-' man Waggoner (R) of. the conimll- tcc estimated that the maximu^^i proposed generally would average 20 to 25 per cent under the salarie:; in effect in 1931. Among the bills still to be introduced are the state income' ta: measures which the house and senate a.ssessment and taxation committees are whipping into shape. Several liicome tax bills have beer, introduced by individual members. Probe Given New Start. Meanwhile, the . administration proposal .for a legislative investigation and audit of the state hlgh- w?iy department was reviewed when the house state affair^ committee- voted to reconsider the Bradncy resolution, previously rejected by tlio group after a senate committee ha-.! reported adversely the conflicting Buzick resolution. Tlie senate ha-I adopted the Bradney resolution, an.l the house the Buzick resolution. The senatorial district reapportionment .movement apparently had failed with the refusal of the senate to override an adverse report by one of Its committees on legislation previously approved by the house.

The bullet burled In the wall and he fled upstairs to end his life.

A blood transfusion was performed on Mrs. Gill just before tho president-elect reached the hospital, in a desperate attempt to save her life and physicians said they were losing hope for her recovery. Physicians also said they were becqmiflg very concerned over the condition of Mayor Cermak " MicT were , watching his heart action closely, still fearful of performing an operation to remove the bullet he received In his back.

Mrs. Cora Fife, Mrs.i Frank Baker and John Meyers, the night, Mr. Roosevelt rode in an open car-to the Jackson Memorial hospital on the outskirts of Miami. He was surrounded by an extra heavy cordon of, police and bodyguards. Mr. Roosevelt was met at the hospital by Dr. R. C. Woodward, tlio superintendent, who gave him the first report on the condition of the victims. At the request of the president-elect, he was permitted to go alone to the bedsides of the wounded. Confusion prevailed for a tew minutes as the crowd milled about. Secret service men and police pounced on the gimman, Women screamed. Looking back from his car, Roosevelt waited for Cermak to be lifted in his car, waved reassuringly to the crowd and told those near: "Tell them I am all right." . Returning'to the yacht of Vincent Astor from which he had just landed from a fishing cruise, the president-elect early today issued the following statement: !"I am deeply moved by the seri- 0M& injuries Inflicted upon my friends tonight and I am remaining in Miami to learn In the morning of their condition. I am entirely unharmed." President Hoover Immediately communicated with Mr. Roosevelt by wire. He said: "Together with every citizen I rejoice that you have not been injured. I shall be grateful to you for news; of Mayor Cermak's condition." Appreciation Expressed. The president -elect replied: "I deeply appreciate your message. Mayor Cermak is resting but his condition is still serious.; T will wire you in the morning after 1 have been to the hospital." Gruelling examination of the swarthy complexloned. stocky-built assassin by secret, service men and Miami officials brought out a dls- coimected, weird story. According to their account, Zangara purchased his pistol in a pawn shop here three days ago for $8. He told them he intended to kill President Hoover, but when he read that Mr. Roosevelt was coming hero he decided to give attention to him. Taking no chances that the gun play waa, the work of one dl.stortcd mind, police, early tciday took Into custody under suspicion Andrea Valentl, who lives at the same address as Zangara. Police Indicated after a lengthy examination of Valentl that they did not believe him identified in any way with the attack made by Zan- (Coatinqed on fa^ 8, CoL 1.)

Candiali, :;aid ho had employed Zangara on several jobs around Bergen county and said ho had a rei^u- tation as a "lunch hoiir" talker. Wlioncver a president was elected or took office, or a king ascended a throno, Candrail said, the bricklayer, with an audience of his fellow workers, would await the lunch hour on tho job, then with wild gestures, he would denounce governments and the men in power, preach radical doctrines, and advocate tho killing of government leaders.

Roosevelt, were followed by speculation that a gangland plot might have been' responsible because of Cermak's d.etermlp- atlon to drive all hoodlums out of Chicago before the world's fair opening in June, only to be discounted later by oJHclaLs. , Antj while tho mayor lay gravely wounded In a Miami hospital tho-^ police continued the anllgang drlvn ordered, by the mayor some time ago.
