HERRING ASKS FARM PRICE PEGGING SPECTACULAR NRA TEST IN CASE OF FORD SEEMS NEAR Public Encouraged To Swing Club of Opinion By RAYMONB CLAPPER United Pres* Staff Correspondent (Copyright, 1933, by United Press) WASHINGTON OJ-E) — Challenged by the passive resistance of Henry Ford, the administration appeared Wednesday to be moving towar^ a spectacular test to determine whether public opinion will swing an effective club to enforce the national recovery pro' tram. There are large teeth in the recovery act. But the administration knows that in the final showdown, its program stands or falls upon the measure of popular support behind it Unless President Roosevelt should unexpectedly reverse General Johnson there will be no attempt to invoke official measures DETROIT <&£> —Henry Ford remained honorary chairman of the Dearborn unit of the NRA Wednesday despite his unwillingness to sign the automobile code. The manufacturer was named honorary chairman a month ago and directors of the Dearborn NRA committee decided Tuesday night not to remove him. "We are convinced," aCspar B. Hughes, chairman said, "that Ford and the NRA will reach a. compromise within a few days." She May Check Sleep Malady Discoveries made by Dr. Margaret G.

Some have ; urged General Johneon to- make an example of Ford and map NBA's teeth on this prominent industrial figure who has chosen to go it alone. The automobile code is in effect and Ford has not signed, therefore, under the law, the president could draw up a 'code and impose it on Ford. Against Strong-Arming But sensing the danger of stirring up sympathy for a manufacturer whose high wages and short hours have been a trade-mark in industry for 20 years, administration opinion here appears set against any strong-arm action which might be construed as persecution in behalf of a technicality. As the situation stood Wednesday Johnson was resting on Ms statement that the next move was up to Ford and that the government would do notLinr; unless Ford violated provisions of the code. .Johnson said the only penalty was that Ford would not get the blue eagle, that the government would buy no equipment from a concern which did not come under the eagle, and that he believed the; public would feel the same way. Now the case is before the-court' of public opinion. If Ford can go on selling his cars, t!?.e public pressure upon which the government Is relying will have failed in a crucial test. Many here would in that case k ~ expect the NRA movement to lose much of its force. Ford sales will be closely watched by every indus- tialist who has chafed at the NRA requirements. Difficulty of disciplining Ford arises out of the fact that there is no complaint against his wages and hours, chiefly at stake is the principle of whether he shall be forced to sign on the dotted line and thus come into the cooperative administration enterprise. Johnson insists it is just as important that an employer sign up and join in the cooperative movement as it is that (Continued on Page Eight) Repeal Carries in Vermont by Vote of 2 to 1 ^MOttTPELIER, Vt. OLE) —Wets carried this traditionally dry state by a majority greater" than 2 to 1, complete returns from Tuesday's election which made Ver- month the twenty-fifth successive state to approve ratification of the twenty-first (repeal) amendment, showed Wednesday. Complete returns from Vermont's eight cities and 240 towns showed: For repeal 41,916. Against repeal 20,633.

Thirteen states voting by Nov. 7 are expected to end national prohibition Maine votes next Monday and the following day, Maryland, Colorado and Minnesota vote. All of Vermont's cities were wet, and many of the towns and villages where drys had expected majorities, were in the wet column. Winooski was 25 to 1 wet; Newport 2 to 1. Plymouth, birthplace of Calvin Coolidge where drys had been certain of victory, gave 28 votes for repeal and 10 OVER 100 KILLED AS STORM STRIKES against. Only two of the state's 14 counties — Orleans and LaMoille — were dry. Addison county, stronghold of former Gov. John E. Weeks, who headed the dry slate of delegates, was solidly wet The wet victory was generally predicted on the basis of the large majorities in both houses of the state legislature legalizing- 3.2 beer. The state convention at which the twenty-first amendment will be formally ratified will be held within 20 or 30 days. A state commission is now studying what Vermont will do about the liquor problem when prohibition is repealed. The state has a dry law, modeled after the Volstead act.

Y-, (HE)— Patrolman Maurice Foley of Binghamton police, one of the first on the scene of the train disaster here Tuesday night give the fol- owing eye witness story to a United Press correspondent. "I was several blocks from the scene and heard a terrific crash, followed by a crashing, grinding sound. People started running by, shouting there had been a train wreck. "I ' jumped down the embankment to the railroad right-of-way. The lights of the milk train still burned brightly and illuminated a scene of wild desolation. The en- gine had cut thru the steel observation coach of the passenger train for a distance of fight feet, just like someone ramming his fist thru a newspaper. The next steel coach was raiianed thru the one in front of it, as though someone had picked it up and dropped it. "At first, there was not a sound. It was an awful silence because I realized there must be dozens of dead and injured persons in that wreck. Then from far up the passenger train, from one of the coaches that was on the rail and not hurt, a woman screamed. It gave me the shivers. Then I heard someone crying. It sounded like a child. I was running toward the wreckage all this time, and I could hear people groaning. "The light from the engine was thrown slightly upward and the ground around the mangled and tangled coaches was dark and I was constantly tripping. As I was running forward,: passengers from the farward coaches were running back. Some were screaming and rarving. j guess they were hysterical. Others were calm. One was a big man with blue eyes. He began giving orders like a top sergeant. I saw fire burning in his eyes and I jumped.

(L r .E)~ The deer which a small army of men have tried vainly to rescue from a natural prison on a rocky ledge, Wednesday essayed its own escape and scampered off into the safety of the forest. At dawn Wednesday park guards were lowered to the ledge from the cliff above. It was their purpose to frighten the deer over a narrow bridge -which had been constructed to give it. a path to freedom. Carefully they maneuvered the deer into position at the bridge, fearing that a false move would cause it to make a frantic leap, into the chasm and death. Instead the deer raced along the edge of the ledge, picked out the place where the drop to the stream bed was the least, a,ncl slid safely down, its forefeet braced against the soft embankment. It was a 35-foot slide and the deer landed on its feet, unharmed. Army Flier*., Observe '. Rep.

Jewish Session Is Broken Up By Stink Bomb GENEVA (U.D—The session of the Jewish conference, wag interrupted Tuesday night whe,n someone tossed a stink-bomb thru a window. The delegates assembling for the evening session hastily left the hall until the police had time to air the building. Rabbi Stephen S. Wise of New York at the. afternoon session issued a stirring appeal to the Jews of the world to end their internal quarreling and unite. "There is no unity, coherence of common action." Dr. Wise complained bitterly. He urged the formation of a world Jewish parliament where all Jewish problems could be pre sented for the world's consideration. "Hitler is appallingly powerful," Dr. Wise said. "We face the mightiest, most monstrous force that Jewry has ever had to face, and Jewry is not united. We cannot even unite to form relief service, but v:e do not consider it hopeless to try to unite the Jews thru the means of a world parliament." !

The letter was received by City Clerk A. B. Maxwell. Mr. Murtagb said: "The council members should be commended for their good management In operating the public utilities in a profitable manner, which permits them to substitute earnings for direct taxation. Taxpayers should appreciate this relief when they are finding it so difficult to pay taxes oh property, much of which is not earning any income." This is the thin: year the city has given a direct relief from tax burdens thru transfer of light plant surpluses to the city's general treasury.

Clyde •L. Herring Wednesday sent * 300- word telegram to' President Roosevelt suggesting that farm prieet be "immediately and arbitrarily" pegged at the 1910-14 levels. Calling attention to the thprt crop of farm products this year, which he said would b« 'less than. any year since 1875," the governor told Mr. Roosevelt that he had conducted a careful survey whicli showed that while mercantile and labor prices were rising, firm commodity returns were dropping lower. "Extreme measures," Herring said, were necessary to force farm prices to a parity with those of other industrial lines. "There exists a feeling thmout the farm belt," the telegram read, "that the 'buy now' campaign cannot realize its full strength so long as the farmers' purchasing power is restrained by lagging prices for farm products. "End of Procwion" "Crops are short Prices must advance in time because of thi« shortage. But so long as they'lai behind the general upward trend, the farmer is in serious difficulty and is unable to participate in th« NRA program. " "I have made a careful survey of the farmers' attitude and I find that the farm populace is considerably, troubled by the fact that farm produce prices have .faltered as contrasted with advancing mercantile and labor prices.
