WITH OPEN BREAK Cheap Money Bloc In Congress Goes on War Path WASHINGTON, <U.E>—The inflation issue was smashing thru party lines and pushing congress and the administration toward an open break Thursday. Congressional, inflationists read an address of Secretary of Agriculture Wallace at Chicago Wednesday as unqualified defiance of their program. Inflation appeared to have a majority of house and senate. The legislators were ready to fight, and wished they were in session. Senator Thomas, democrat, Oklahoma, a leader of the inflation bloc, met Wallace's challenge with a demand for a 40 cent dollar. "Some of us last winter thought a 60-cent dollar would do the, trick," Thomas told the Unitef Press. "We've got. it but it is not enough. A 50-cent dollar may not., ^ ^ ^^ n serve the purpose.

Y, CRIME t- Suspected of Murders, Robbery, Kidnaping NEW YORK (HE) — The mos spectacular criminal round up since dissolution of the Gerald Chapman gang, Thursday placed police close to solution of five murders, four bank robberies, and one major kid uaping. Five men, four of whom hac long criminal records, and two women -were held. Two of the men were charged with homicide. All were charged with robbery. Despite the failure of John J. O'Connell, jr., a member of the politically powerful O'Connell family of Albany, to positively identify any of the men as the kidnapers who held him 21 days and collected ?40,000 for his release, police continued to build up a circumstantial case to link them with his abduction. O'Connell thot two of the men "resembled" his kidnapers. The roundup was accomplished in a series of raids in New York and Mount Kisco, N. Y., and culminated months of detective work by New York city police and federal agents. The raids gave police a large arsenal of machine guns and shot-guns and, according to the raiders, broke up a plot to kidnap a nationally known criminal lawyer. ^ The men held were: AntSony Reino, 23, with a criminal record^ dating back to 1929; Phil Zeigler, 32, whose first meeting with police "was in 1916; Charles Herzog, 35, first arrest. 1919; Leonard Scar- nj ci, 27, first arrest, 1924; Fred Prentel, 27, with only one previous arrest, in 1927 for assault with a knife. The two women were Mrs. Eleanor Scarnici, Scarnici's wife, and Emma Reino who was living with Heino. Detectives said the men might (Continued'on Page Two) Another of President Roosevelt's recent diplomatic appointees is George Earle, 3rd, pictured above. He will take the post of U.

Troops Guard Palace In Havana HAVANA (ILE>—Cavalrymen pa trolled the streets Thursday and soldiers sat behind machine guns at the presidential palace in an .icipation of a major revolt against the Grau San Martin government. President San Martin in a dramatic gesture eloquent of the cold nerve that has enabled him to retain his office despite united political opposition waited at the palace until 2:25 a. m. to receive any revolutionists in person. He went there at 10:30 o'clock Wednesday night when he heard a revolt was mminent. The siutation at Havana was matchc J by that in the eastern pro- •inces of the narrow island. New revolts and new strikes were reported. A condition ap- iroaching anarchy was apparent t many places. Danger to Amer- can lives was feared at some •oints. There were arrests at various laces of communists and of offi- ers accused of plotting against the government. Four revolts of minor proportions were known to be in progress. The government claimed it had halted a fifth pending negotiations.

The inflation fight will continue You may depend on that." Insert inflation—Frt hbd Senator Thomas declared that President Roosevelt hasn't "done all he dared do" toward inflation. On May 7, the president said, "The a^. ministration has the definite objective of raising commodity prices to such an extent that those who have borrowed money will be able to repay that money in the same kind of dollar which they borrowed." Thomas asserted that all that has been, done in that direction is to start open marketing purchases of government bonds, press for credit expansion and push reopening of banks. Wallace's speech, was considered by capital observers as second in importance only to President Roosevelfs inaugural address in which he outlined the broad scope of his recovery plans. Wallace promised higher agricultural prices in a few months and said they might be achieved in a few weeks That program scarcely meets the demands of such party leaders a s Chairman Harrison of the senate finance committee who publicly stated after a conference with Mr. Roosevelt that the administration must inflate while crops still are j n the hands of producers or accept mandatory inflation by con- grfss next winter. Market reaction to the Wallace speech infuriated congressional in- flationists. For whatever cause commodity and stock markets sagged after the secretary spoke in Chicago. Cotton went off $2 a bale at the moment a disgruntled cotton conference was adjourning here without having obtained administration acceptance of its inflation proposals. Some congregational inflation- ists who refuse to discuss greenbacks for publication agree In thit issue of the Tribune-Times there is an announcement of extraordinary Importance. The publishers have decided to add to their staff a large corps of local workers who will be aiven employment for the next three months at good pay. In keeplns with the spirit of the NRA, the Tribune-Times will add these new employes to its already large staff in order to increase employment and buying power in Story county. These new employes, both men and women, wiil be field workers whose task will be to add new names to the Tribune-Times' subscription list and to obtain renewal subscriptions from those already on the list. They will be paid liberally, not in merchandise, but in straight cash commissions with extraordinary bonus awards for the leaders. Here is an opportunity for salesmanship right at home, an opportunity for profitable employment from now Until Christmas time. Not only will the Tribune-Times pay substantial commis- s.ons for new subscriptions but it will give also the same remuneration for collections and advance payments from old subscribers. A newspaper has but two avenues for revenue: Advertising and Circulation. The Ames Daily Tribune-Times has an adequate force of advertising solicitors but it is able to tie into the spirit of the NRA rensmployment drive by adding new workers in the circulation department. There is always room on the subscription list for new readers and it will be the particular duty of this extra staff of employes to get new readers. Sixty-five hundred dollars in cash has been set aside as compensation for these new employes. Full details of the plan are published elsewhere in this paper. No one is barred from becoming a member of the new force. The Tribune-Times wants a lot of workers. It wants to put them on its payroll. Would you like to add several hundred dollars to your income in the next three months? Will YOU work for the Tribune-Times? HENRY WALLACE RESIGN Sen.

The governor said he had received information that members of the Bailey-Underbill gang had planned to kidnap the birl in an effort to effect the release of several life-termers in the Kansas penitentiary. Under Kansas law, the governor can issue secret 10-day paroles which the plotters would have demanded for their companions in return for freeing the sir!. Landon said the paroles were to be granted presumably to allow the- convicts sufficient time to escape from the state and join the gang: Iowa"ChTld ?

The gain in contracts was due largely to increased activity in public works and public utilities, the report showed. For the former the August total was somewhat more than twice as large as the July figure; for the latter August awards were almost five times as large as in July. Public works contracts, however, were considerably smaller than in August, 1932, but. public utilities awards were more than twice as large as those in August of last year. Residential awards in August showed a total of 521,937.000 as against . 123.630,400 for July and ?20,766,800 for August, 1932.

It is a campaign in which thousands of dollars in DAILY pay checks and prize awards will be distributed among- energetic men and women who will devote a reasonable amount of their time in the next three months to work for this newspaper. At the start, the publishers have set aside $6,500 for CASH COMPENSATION for workers. It is possible that the new staff of employes, which the Tribune-Times will add to its payroll from QOW until Christmas time may earn even more than that large amount. The Tribune-Times is the first newspaper in this section of the state of Iowa to offer its readers and friends an opportunity to participate in a "Daily Income" subscription drive. The Tribune-Times wishes to enlarge its already large family of readers. It wants to widen its circulation territory. When it appeared that the time for expansion was at hand, that business conditions were improving and that farm prices were definitely on the upward trend, the publishers decided upon an energetic subscription campaign. They had their choice of two methods—either to employ outside professional solicitors or to offer the work to local people. They decided to employ local men and women and, in addition to the commissions that would have been paid to the professional solicitors, to pay their friends and loyal workers at home some very substantial cash awards. As a result, local live wires have today an opportunity tp share in the distribution of $6,500 or more in commissions or cash years, being examined, of these ages living All babies in Boone, The women's auxiliary of the post of the Veterans of For- ign Wars, will conduct a forget- me-not sale in .Ames Saturday, for he purpose of raising funds for re- ief work among veterans.

Stock Exchange To Move Office To New Jersey NEW YORK, (IIP) — The New York stock exchange Thursday agreed to make Wall street a "branch office" instead of the world's major trading center, when governors and officers accepted an invitation to head the New Jersey stock exchange, formed to avoid New York city taxes.
