(AP)— The formation of a new bank, the National Bank of Detroit, with capital of 25 million dollars w^as: announced today by the Reconstruction corporation and Alfrpd P. Sloan, president of the Gieneral Motors corporation, ' Secretary Woodin approved the plans. The announcement was made at the treasiuy, where officials have been at work for days toward solution of Detroit banking prpblems. It is proposed that the new- bank will take over part of the assets of the First National Bank of Commerce of Detroit and assume part of the deposits. Half of the capital, *12,500,000, will be in form of a subscription to the common stock and has been underwritten and paid in cash by General Motors cor- jwratlon. Tlie balance has been supplied by the United States government through tbo Reconatruc- tlon Finance corporation in form of a subecription to- the preferred stock. The Notional Bank of Detroit will be the first bank chartered under the emergency bank act and the joint statement said it will make available to Detroit a sound bank with I ample facilities. / LA HARPE BANK WILL LIQUIDATE A.

The reaison the department recommended thts plan is not insolvency of the bank, but that the volume of business is so small that It is unprofitable to operate the bank. Mr. Holdeman explained. It Is therefore to the benefit of the depositors- and stockholders to liquidate the assets of the bank and pay the depositors and stockholders. Mr. Holdeman apd the stockholders expect to pay the deposltoi-s In full. On March 4 the assets of the bank, were $130,000 and the liabilities were $106,000. leaving a net balance of assets ol $24,000, which they feel will leave the stockholders practically their original investment, and •w.-hlch •will be returned to the stockholders after the de- ixisltors have been paid in full. On March 4 the bank had cash on hand of $9,169.56 and bo^ds to the amount of $25250. The cash on hand would pay more than 12 per cent of the deposits. It will be the ambition of the conservator to pay the depositors a substantial dividend as soon as possible. There is a provision in the Emergencj' Bank act whereby a conservator may receive trust deposits. "Such deposits received while the bank i$ in the hands of the conseri-ator shall be kept on hand in cash. Invested in the direct obligations of the tTnited States, or deposited with the federal reserve bank," such deposits are subject to withdrawal at any time, in part or in full. Mr. Holdeman as conservator has made application for this privilege, and it was granted. DR. LAMBERT SHOT i Nationally Known Official Absolves •\ Son of Blame Columbus, O.. March 21. (AP)— Dr. P. A. Lambert,'nationally known football official and member of the advisory coimcU of the national rules committee, was shot and probably fatally woimded by his son Samuel, 17, early today during s family quarreL 1^' At a hospital, where Dr. Lambert underwent an emergency operation, he absolved his son from all blame. Young Lambert described the shooting as accidental. He said he had been called by Mrs. Lambert, who told him his father had choked her and twisted her arm. Then, the youth said, his weapon was discharged accidentally. Dr. Lambert's condition was described by physicians as "extremely .se:rlous." The bullet grazed his lung and i pierced his liver. Mrs. La'mbert told police her husband had been drinking and that she called her son to her aid.- "When the son entered the bedroom, she said her husband picked up a revolver and that the youth grappled with his father for the weapon. As Lambert backed away the gun was discharged. Dr. Lambert Is secretary-treasurer of the Columbus Senmi company and has ivrltten several books conr cemhig football rules. Fanner Avenges Fleecing.

(AP)—A new militant Oermany, animated by the old Prussian military spirit, was proclaimed in an inipressive reichstag opening ceremony today In the garrison church where President Von Hindenburg and Chancellor Adolf Hitler were the chief figures. The reichstag was meeting for the flrst time since the elections of March 3. Other meeting places were used because the reichstag building vfoa badly damaged in a fire a few days before the elections. The chair of the former yaise; Wilhelm II was left aymbollcall; vacant In the royal box occupied b; the Hohcnzollem princes. Nationalist Germany's appreciation of the Imperial past of th counto' became evident in doublj salutes at the beginning and end oif the exercises given by| the president with his field marshal's baton to thie crown prince and other members oif the former imperial family. | The church was filled with meat bers of the reichstag, the diplomatic corps, generals and admirals who served in the 'World war, and veterans of wars dating as far back as 1864. Members to Their Feet. The assembly stood reverently^ as the president read his brief address, without spectacles, from a manuscript written by hand in big black letters. 'Weighty and manifold duties await you.'; the president said. "I know the chancellor and cabinet face with determination the difiB- cult problems to be solved at home and abroad. I hope the members of the new reichstag place themselves loyally behind the government." "The placer where we stand recalls older Prussia; which became great through fear of God, devotion to duty, unflagging courage and'self- denying patriotism." In marked contrast to the president's martial figure was Chancellor Hitler, dressed In a cutaway coat displajing the Iron cross and the Nazi swastlcka emblem. Nazi members of the reichstag, however, were in uniform. Centrists Impassive. Only a few feet away in pews occupied by members of the Centrist party sat former Chancellor Heln- rlch Brucnlng, who apiieared pallid and sad. Otherwise the Centrist delegates sat lmpa.ssive. The Socialist members did not appear. Responding to the president's address, chancellor Hitler said: 'For years heavy burdens have been impressed upon our people. After a period of proud revival, poverty and distress have visited us once more. MilUons of Germans seek theh: dally bread .in vain. Our economy is desolated, our finances shattered. For 2,000 years this faith has plung to our people; ever against our ascent comes our fall • • • " i In a voice sometimes shrill and sometimes quivering with emotion, he continued: ^ "Our people have doiie their share to strsngthen and increase the benefits of peace, civilization, and culture. While conscious of their power, they never forgot the responsibiUty for mutual cooperation of European nations." He declared that neither the kai­ ser nor the government wanted war, which nonetheless was a fight for Germany's freedom. Hitler rejected the charge of German war guilt as a lie and appealed to the people to rally behind President Von Hindenburg, calling him "the symbol of the tadestructlbiUty of the life of the German nation." As a choir sang,.the president, ac- compaiiled by his son, walked to a vault behind the altar and placed a wreath on the tomb of Frederick the Great while artillery fired a salute. The assembly reviewed a brilliant military parade past the church. Pentecostal RevivaL Many out-of-town persons are attending, the revival services being conducted at the Pentecostal church by James B. Burrell, the Rev. J. A. Dunham said today. Some members of, the congregation over the week-end were from towns as far away as Wichita. Mr. Dunham expressed his appreciation for the cooperation the people of lola have been giving, and issued another invitation to attend the services this week which he said will be of a strictly evangelistic nature. game with the intentions of fleecing him.

New Idea in Rail Saf e;ty Gampaigns Is Explained Isiah Hale, Superintendent of Safety for the Santa Fe RaU- road, Tells of Scheme Being Used on That Road Now to Good Avail, Before Current Topics Club. A new idea in railroad safety campaigns was described before the members of the Current Topics club last night— the Idea of showing? the employe how he himself can; profit by betag careful enough to avoid a Icst-time or fatal accident. Isiah Hale, safety superintendent of the Santa Fe railroad, was the speaker who outlined the piaa which is now behig used hy the system. He spoke at the Kelley hotel and members of the. club indicaited their enjoyment and appreclBtfoc nith generous applause at the conclusion of his address. 'nm >ugbout the speech, Mr. Hale used an epigrammatic style with forceful, sometimes humorous, but always etrlking effect. Mr. Hale addressed himself to the men on the assumption that all of them are employers to a greater or leas extent and used two major NO COMMUNITY GARDEN NEEDED Jobless Men Already Prepared to Work Plots For Themselves No community garden, as such, will be offered as an aid to im- employed men in lola this year it was announced today after groups behind the movement found that but 23 men signed up for the project which they expected would be asked for by at least a hundred. Instead, arrangement will be made whereby those 23 will be aided by the lola welfare association in finding Individual plots of ground If they so desire. Seeds may also be furnished by the association. When the plan was first suggested, local welfare workers arranged i^or leasing a large tract of land close to lola which they planned to prepare for gardening which was to be done in small plots by men applying for it. Supervision of cultivation was to have been given and the produce was to have gone to the workers. "To explain the idea to lola unemployed, and to take applications for plots in the garden, A. C. Scott, chairman of the Allen county federal relief committee, held a mass meeting for the men last week. At the conclusion of the meeting, however, only 18 men signed up and after another few • ^ays but five more had registered. - At the meeting it was found that a vast majority of those present had lalready made arrangements for their own back yard or vacant lot gardens so that a community project was virtually unnecessary even at that time. Since the: major purpose of the garden—to provide work and food for Jobless men—has already been attained by the men individually, it was decided to abandon the project. In addition, it was made known that the Lehigh Portland cement company will give land and seeds free to all persons who are now or were employed by the company at the time of its last shut-down, if they apply. This move on the part of the company further decreases the need for a community garden, relief workers believe. Any person who wants to have a garden this year and who Is imable to obtain the necessary ground or seeds, should confer with W. E. Rundall at the welfare rooms. nic call 3,' Mr. that if premises from which to start J.

Recognition of Russia Possible Washington, March 21. (AP)— Should President Roosevelt decide to grant recognition to Soviet Russia, a development which advocates expect In the near future, there are many ways in which he might bring this about. As the president is entrusted with foreign relations he miglit acliieve the recognition by appointing an ambassador to Moscow. Of course, confirmation of such an appointee would rest with the senate. Or the president or secretary of state might merely make an announcement that the soviet republic has been granted recognition and name an ambassador later. ^ Recognition might also be accomplished by signing a treaty after Ojegotiations with representatives of tbe Stalin, government. Senator King (D. Utah) lias announced that he favors a senatorial hearhig on the whole Russian situation and Senator Borah (R. Idaho), believes a resolution favoring the recognition of Soviet Russia should be adopted by the senate, but would not advocate such action without a suggestion from the 'White House. The passage of such a resolution by the senate probably would serve to silence anti-recognitlonists who might assail the president were he; to act without an indication how^ the senate stands on the questloh. Rus^on trade going to Great Britain, CSermany, and Italy is the chief argument the recognitlonists are using now in their effort to get speedy action. Last year American exjwrts to Russia were valued at only $15,800.000, as compared with 1930,' when American goods valued at $136,162,000 -were sold to, Russia. That was more than she times the value of American imports from the Soviet republic. Cincinnati, o.. Mar. 21.

Create Civilian Conservation Corps BUREAU IS NEEDED Executive Says Relief Administrator Necessary for Efficiency Washhigton, Mar. 21. (AP)— President Roosevelt recommended to congress today the creation of a "civilian conservation corps" to give Jobs in the foresta. Again writing concisely, he addressed his fifth major proposal to the legislators with a prpmlse of putting 260,000 men to work "by early Bummer," U giv^ authority to proceed within two weeks. The president also outlined suggestions for "grants to states for relief work" and a broad program of public construction. He asked estabUshment of the office of federal relief administrator to direct the maclilnery for coordination of his relief plans. 'He said he would submit soon to congress recommendations to carry out the direct relief work and the public construction plan. Funds AvailaUe Now. Funds are available for relief im- til May, he said, necessitating furtii- er appropriations before that time. The presidential text follows: To the Congress; It is essential to our recovery program that measures iipmediately be enacted aimed at unemployment re- Uef. A dhrect attack In this problem suggests three types of legislation. The first Is the enrollment of workers now by the fedSul government for such public employment as can be quickly started and will not Interfere with the demand for or the proper standards of normal employment. The second is grants to states for relief work. ^e thh-d extends to a broad public works labor creathig program. With reference to the latter I am now studying the many projects suggested and the fhianclal questions involved. I shall make recommendations to the congress presently. More Money Needed. In regard to grants to states for relief work, I advise you that the remainder of the appropriation of last year will last until May. Therefore, and because a continuance of federal aid is still a definite necessity for many states, a further appropriation must be made before the end of this special session. I find a clear need for some simple federal machinery to coordinate and check these grants of aid. I am, therefore, asking that you establish the office of federal relief administrator, whose duty it will be to scan requests for grants and to check the efficiency and wisdom of theh: use. The first of these measures which I have enumerated, however, can and sliould be immediately enacted. I propose to create a civilian conservation corps to be used I9 simple work, not Interfering with normal employment, and confining Itself to forestry, the prevention of soli erosion, flood control and shnllar projects. Of Practical Value. I call your attention to the fact that this type of work is of definite, practical value, not only through the preijentlon of great present financial loss, but also as a means of creating future national wealth. This Is brought home by the news we are receiving today of vast damage caused by floods on the Ohio and other rivers. Control and direction of such work can be carried on by existing machinery of the departments of labor, agriculture, war, and Interior. I esthnate that 250,000 men can be given temporary employment by early simmjer if you give me authority to proceed within the next two weeks. I ask no new fimds at this time. The use of. unobligated funds, now appropriated for pubUc works, will be sufficient for several months. This enterprise is an established part of our national policy. It will conserve our precious natiutd resources. It will pay dividends to the present and future generations. It will make improvements in national and state domains which have been largely forgotten In the past few years of Industrial development. Moral Value Stressed. More Important, however, than the material gahis will be the moral and spiritual •value of such work. The overwhelming majority of imem- ployed Americans, who are now .walking the streets and receiving private or pubUc relief, would In- fhiltely prefer to work. We can take a vast army of these unemployed out into healthful surroundings. We can ellmtaate to some pxtcnt at least the threat that enforced idleness brings to spiritual and moral stability. It is not a panacea, for all the unemployment but it Is an essential step In this emergency. I ask its adoption. Speaker Ralney referred the message to the labor conunittee. It was accompanied by a draft of the propcsed bllL The house applauded the measure, at the conclusion of its reading. As soon as a senate quorum was obtained — 65 members answering presents—the message also was read to the senate. The membership there followed the words without BEER IN BRIEF ACCORDING TO STATE SITUATIONS (By the Associated Press.)

HOOYERWANTS TO STAY HOME Former President Lays No Plans on Arriving at Palo Alto Palo Alto, CaUf., Mar. 21. (AP)— Back from the long years of government service in war and in peace that culminated in the presidency, Herbert Hoover entered his home on San Juan Hill here today and told interviewers he hoped to remain there "for the next 20 yeare." The former president received the greetings of state officials. Republican leaders and neighbors at the Palo Alto community house after motoring here from Oakland, where he arrived by train from Chicago this morning. It was a quiet ceremony. About 300 persons cheered and applauded as the police escorted automobile bearing the former president drove up. Mayor Earl C. Tliomas of Palo Alto made a brief address which ended with "we are proud to have you back." "That's good of you." Mr. Hoover responded. "It is indeed a great pleasure to come home. For 19 years I have been going away from California rather than coming back-to it. Now I hope to reverse that." The ceremony lasted a scant five minutes and then the former president escorted by the welcoming delegation, went to the large house of Moorish architecture on the Stanford campus which Mr. Hoover had been able to use so Uttle as his home In recent years, Mrs. Hoover was at the door to welcome him, she having arrived two days ago from southern California. The welcoming committee included Dr. and Mrs. Ray Lyman Wilbur, Governor James Rolph Jr.; John L. McNab, who npminated Mr. Hoover at the Republican convention hi 1928; Mark L. Requa; Re- pubUcah leader; J. R. Knowland, publisher, and Chester Rowell, pub- Ucist. * Mr. and Mrs. Hoover and theh* son, Allan, posed for the photogr raphers and Mr. Hoover answered a few questions for reporters. Asked what he intended to do, he said: "I think rm entitled to have some time to myself. I have no plans whatever. I hope I won't have to say what I am gohig to do at 9:02 a. m. or 9:05 p. m., Wednesday or Thiursday. "Nineteen years ago I left California to obtain the participation of foreign governments in the Panama Pacific International Exposition which was held in San Francisco in 1915. Since then I haven't been back more than three months at a time." . "How long do you expect to be here?" someone asked. "I hope to remain here for the next twenty years." Mr. Hoover said he hoped also to avoid making speeches "for some time to come." DESERTED DESPITE EFFORTS. Mrs. Walker Says Jtmmie Left Her And Won't Return. IVIiami, Pla., March 21.

(AP)-aiio house of representatives voted fhial passage' of the 3.2 beer and wlnea bill today, but senate adjournment ijefore the vote took place made it impossible to send the legislation to the White House for President Rooaevelt to sign it before nightfall as had been planned. There was no record vote in tho house, only a short speech against the bill by Representative Blanton (D. Tex.) preceding tho shouts of "aye."

Important Post Given to Woman' Washhigton, March 21. (AF)— First woman ever to be appointed to the vitally important house appropriations committee is Representative Florence P. Kalin, of CaU* fomia. Vested with the power to pass on every dollar appropriated by tha federal government for any reason whatsoever, this committee is one of the hardest-working oil capitbl hilL That's why Mrs. Kahn, a grand- toother who radiates vigor, Is frankly deUghted with her new Job. "I've gone into that committee determined to take any sut )Commltte« appointment they give me, no mat* ter how inconsequential it may look, and to work harder than the hardest-working man on the committee,* said Mrs. Kalm. "I feel shice this is the flrst tima a woman has ever been put on appropriations, the reputation of tba women of the country to be qualified such a place is at stake, and I'm not gohig to fall down!" A member of congress slnca March, 1923, keen-witted Mrs. Katan has won compUments from her fellow members for her ability to "play the game according to the rules," asid, not infrequently, beat her masculine colleagues to a high score! . For three years after she took tha seat left vacant by the death of her husband, ithe late Julius Kahn, sba might be found any working daj, grubbing away at the necessary but inglorious tasks to which new mem" hers of congress, somewhat like college freshmen, are put. Then the late speaker, Nicholas Longworth, stopped her one day In passing, and said to her: "You'vo served a fine apprenticeship, and we haven't beard a complaint out of you. I believe there'll be a place f <M? you on the military affahs committee." That was a rich reward tor Mrs. Kahn. For tho military affairs committee was the one on wiiich her husband served illustriously during the world war. K. C. Weatherman Dies. , Kansas aty. Mar. 21. (AP)— R.
