FOUR PAGES VARIETY TESTS INTHISCOUNH AIDTOKANSAS Experiments Over Period Of 20 Years Give Valuable Results NEW SORGHUM GOOD Other Tests Made on.Soy Beans, Wheat, Corn, Prove Helpful I — :— Cooperative variety tests made in ; Allen county on sorghums, wheat, soy beans, corn and other crops, are giving valuable infcrmatlon to Kan• sas. according' to Mr. A. L. Clapp of the Department of Agronomy at the Kansas state collegie, Manhattan. Two of the sorghium variety tests for the year 1932 were in Allen county on the farms of Henry ; Grimm of Geneva and J. Frank Ste- fvens of Humboldt. The cooperative experiments in Allen county are im- der the supervision of Dan M. Eraum, count:^ agent, who made public this information today. In the Grimm test, one of the new grain sorghums from the Hays experiment station gave the highest yield, 88.9 bushels per acre. Red kafir was second and another new grain sorghum from the Hays station was third with 81.6 bushels per acre. Atlas made 21.6 tons of silage, per acre as compared to 19.9 for Kansas Orange and 14.4 for Black- hull kafir. In the Stevens test the yields were not so high. Pink kafir was first with a yield of 45.5 bushels per acre, followed by Western Blackhull and Hed kafir. Nine sorghum variety tests have been conducted in Allen county from 1914 to 1928. Of these tests Black- hull kafir, Dawn kafir and Pink kafir were practically equal. In recent years, however. Red kafir has out-yielded Pink kafir about 1.5 bushels per acre. Of the nine wheat variety tests located in Allen county, Fulcastcr gave the highest yield, averaging 1.5 to 2.2 bushels per acre more than Pultz, Curi-eli; Red Sea, Harvest Queen. Blackhull. and Kanred. In receht years, however, Pulcaster has been out-yielded in southeastern Kansas by Kawvale, a new variety produced at the Kansas experiment station. Kawvale is resistant to ! Hessian fly and leaf rust and is more winterhardy and earlier'than Pulcaster. In the years fi;Dm 1913 to 1925, 27 com variety tests have been located in Allen, countyj Pride of Saline gave the highest yield and was several Bushels per, acre more than Midland Yellow.'Kansas Sunflower, Reid Yellow Dent, and Freed White. However, as an average of all the tests made in southeastern Kansas over a period of 21 years. Pride of Saline has yielded less than one bushel per acre more than Midland Yellpw. The soy bean variety tests In Allen county have shown that A. K. has been the-best general purpose variety. It makes a good yield of both seed and hay. Mahchu. Morse and Virginia have been good seed- producing varieties while Laredo and Sable have been good hay varieties. These variety tests are conducted by the Department of Agronomy, Kansas, in cooperation with the farmers and with the assistance of Mr. Braum. CHILD DIES IN LIGHTHOUSE MASOONED BY ICE. Port Morten. N. S- Mar. 29. (AP)—A message of death, blinking in red flashes from a lighthouse, drew rescuers early today to a new-attempt to reach ice-locked Flint island. "A child is dead," said the red lights, flashing six times in groups of two. The dead ctiild is one of nine in the family of Lightkeeper Martell, but which df the nine it was no one on the mainland knew. For 50 hours 'boats had sought in vain to reach the island, isolated by, a mile and a half of broken ice. Frantic signals had told them something was wrong, but at first no one knew what it wa& \ Yesterday. Shore people composed a code of signals, .which were delivered to the light tower in a note dropped from an airplane by Don McPhersoii. But there was a mixup, and all that was definitely established was that some one was ill br dead. Then the. Olace Bay radio station asked ttie islanders to flash the light twice in case Martel was dead, four, times if it was Mrs. Martell, and six times if It was one of the children. Many eyes watched in the cold darkness last. night as the light began to blink "Flash-flash^ Plash-flash. Plash-flash." The government ice-breaker Montcalm made ready to sail from North Sydney to bring the body ashore and give aid if anyone else was sick.

CITY CLEANING ITS OWN HOUSE Old Records and Files Are Disposed Of -r Paint For Headquarters Spring house-cleaning fever is running its full course at. city hall these days. \ The changes being made which are most visible to the visitor are in the office of the police, where the walls have been painted and new linoleum laid on the floor. But the biggest job is being supervised by City Clerk T. E. Shanahan. He has been responsible for the periodical cleaning out of the city's old files and he said that yesterday three truck loads of papers :—receipts, memoranda, records—were hauled from their former repository in one of the small rooms over the utilities office, Bookkeeping records, cash register slips, and other : non-permanent records dating as far back as 1903 have been.dug put jind disposed of. Every thing which Is not of a permanent Inature has been disposed of down until 1929. Permanent records however, still are kept in the city vaults under combination locks and protected against fire. When the files in the store room on the second floor of the city hall are emptied and cleaned out, Mr. Shanahan said that records which are now kept in the first floor vault win be moved upstah^, leaving the much needed room for material of contemporaneous naturel How long it has been since the files were gone over and the outdated data discarded. Mr. Shanahan could not say. It is the first time, however, since he has been in offlce. •While the police headquarters are being freshened up. Chief A. V. Funkhouser is transacting his business at ft desk in an adjoining room, which has been used as a commissioner 's office and for other purposes. Funkhouser could not say cither how long It had been since the headquarters were redecorated, but estimated that it must have been several years. The new Interior will be of a much lighter tone than before, and the chief said that the improvements arc welcome. M'ADOOOFFERS BILL TO LOWER FARM INTEREST Californian's Measure Is To "Assist" the President's Program OYEit TWO HURDLES Motions to Change Farm BiU Overridden in Senate Group Washington, Mar. 29, (AP)—Help for the farmer in meeting his mortgages at lower interest was proposed in a measure introduced todiay by Senator McAdoo (D., Calif.) while the senate agriculture committee wrestled with the administration's sweeping farm relief bill. McAdoo's measure, calling for creation of a strong federal farm mortgage bank and with authority to base it on consolidated agricultural credit agencies, was offered by him "to assist Mr. Roosevelt In formulating a farm mortgage program." The committee, meanwhile, in ah effort to get the administration farm bill to the senate floor by Friday or Saturday, went Into an afternoon executive session to discuss the measure, which would give extensive powers to Secretary Wallace to restore agriculture. Two efforts to limit the commodities to which the bill would apply were rejected in committee. A motion of Senator Kendrick of Wyoming, the assistant Democratic leader, to eliminate cattle and sheep was beaten 9 to 6, while a move by Senator McNary of Oregon, the Republican leader, to limit it to wheat and cotton was downed_I3 to 4. , Members disagreed as to whether these votes constituted a test of strength for the administration bill. , Some senators. Including Thomas fD.. OWa.) looked on the two votes as indicating the administration bill would pass the senate with comparatively few changes from the original draft passed intact by the hoasc. Others, including Norrls (R., Neb.) declined to say whether they considered this a test vote and Smith who desires big changes, said: "I thtak this conunittee is about as undecided in its final analysis of this bill as it could be." Smith said the committee had confined its work behhid closed doors this morning to debating and voting on limitation of the bill' and had not yet taken up his proposed substitute. • As the bill now stands it would give Secretary Wallace broad powers to aid the following commodities: •Wheat, cotton, com, hogs, cattle, sheep, oats, milk and dairy products and rice. Smith told newspapermen that Senator McNary, of Oregon, the Republican leader, had made the move to limit the bill to wheat and cotton. Those who voted with him. Smith said were himself, Norrls and Kendrick. Wheeler (D., Mont.) joined McNary, Smith, Kendrick, and Norrls In seeking to eliminate cattle and sheep. Smith said. .SCRIPT CLUB HOLDS PARTYi Everything Backwaeds Is the Motto At School Function. : The Script club, Iwnorary commercial organization *of the high school, held a backwards party ik the gym last nlghtl.- The guests had their clothes on backwards, entered from the back way, and played backward games.

BEHIND THE PARADE Senator Still Argues Against Measure Already Passed. Washington, March 29. (AP)— Before some of the members realized what was up, the senate today passed and sent to the house a bill removing all limitations now imposed on doctors in issuing liquor prescriptions for piedlcal purposes. It had been before the senate less than ten minutes when, without debate and with a mere voice vote, the measure WB « put through. Then Senator Sheppard (D., Tex.), apparently without realising what had happened, took the floor to speak against the bill. Senator Robinson, the Democratic leader, observed that "at least we ought to have an explanation of the measure from the bill's proponents." Senator King (D., Utah), who had called up the bill, said that was no longer necessary, the bill had passed. Senators laughed, but through the clamor Sheppard could be heard telling his colleagues he had voted against it. llie measure waa sponsored by Copeland (D., N. Y.), and, in abolishing existing restrictions, provides that "no more liquor shall be prescribed to any person than Is necessary to supply his medical needs.'House approval is expected, since last session it passed a similar bill which died on the senate doorstep. The American Medical association has long sponsored the legislation and the '^^ckersham commission recommended it unanimous^.'. Present government prescription blanks will be eliminated and stamps will be substituted. Anxious Workers Await Results ofi Oil Meeting Everybody Connected With Mi#continent Industry Hopes for the Best But Fears the Worst From Gbvemprs' Crni- ference "With Secretary Ickes in Washington. Tulsa,' Okla., March 29. (AP)— Nervously fi^etbig,; the thousands affected by the welfare of the mid- continent oil Industry pressed an ear to the ground today, listening for more wordj from Washington about possible federal intervention. Ophiions have conflicted as isbarp- ly here as in Washington, where oil leaders, persons delated to represent govemprs of oil producing states, and the various classifications of "independents" have completed two days of battling aU over again the troubles that have harried the industry for the past four years. Interest has not been confined to oil men alone, but has affected as well bankers, merchants and others of the commercial structiure, while the,oil marketers, producers, tech- 2iical experts and Just plain hired hands wonder what the outcome will be. There has been intense |hope. that the government would not find it necessary to Intervene, but at the same time a belief has spread that TATTY-KAY'IS NAME CHOSEN Mrs. Dick Stewart Wins Prize Offered by Garment Factory Garments manufactured by lola's new dress factory will be known from now on as "Patty-Kay" frocks as the result of the name suggested by Mrs. R. H. Stewart and selected as the best of those received by the company hi its contest held recently. To those persons who are not acquainted with Mrs. McPall or W- E. Kerr, partners in the new enterprise, the name is but a pleasant sounding, easily spoken phrase, but to those who know them, and especially to two young lola misses, the name has a special significance. Patricia McFall is the charming young daughter of Mrs. McFall, and her name Is commonly contracted to "Patsy." Katherine Kerr, the quite attractive although older daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kerr, is also frequently called "Kay" by her Intimate friends. Consequently, a combination of the two names was a "natural" which will before long become known to thousands of women who do not know the two young ladles, but who will know the dresses which the name Will designate. Mrs. Stewart, wife of the shoe repair shop operator and a public school "kindergarten teacher, has received $10 for her suggested name, which the factory owners say will be reglstCTed with the government in Washington. Meanwhile, the new factory is bustling with activity. The rest of the 25 machines which will be used when production is started are bs- ing installed today while sample lines for the salesmen are nearing completion. ;^ Gym Nights Popnlar. The Girl Reserve gym nights, a recent innovation, have been a great success, according to- Miss Ethel Howell, chief sponsor of the G. R. The meetings are once a week, and the usual entertainment is basketball, setting up exercises, and drills. At the last meeting, the feature of the evening was a. study of the stars from the jtraf of the senior high school building. NImrod Hanklns, amateur astronomer, showed the girls the visible constellations. Bluebirds and Robins Both Ready to Battle Glen Ellyn, 111., Mar. 29. (AP)— Robins- and blue birds, it seems, are Just natural born shadow boxers. They'll fight anytime at the drop of the shadow. Local naturalists, scanning the news reports of the cock robin that has been wearing his ;beak down boxing with his own reflection in front of a window pane In Kansas City, say this sort of fiRhting Is Just an old custom with red breasts and blue birds. One naturalist, Harry Aberdeen, said he recalled many instances of blue birds and robins pecking away at their own reflections. Years ago a robin saw his own reflection in a window of the Episcopal church at Batavia, 111., and got so noisy with his fighting that he disturbed the Easter morning worshippters, and atmoyed the choir boys at practice. The rector finally solved the problem by putting up another piece of glass to blot-out the bird's reflection. "John Burroughs, the latie widely known American naturalist," Aberdeen said, "recorded: one instance where a male blue blixl got so noisy with his shadowj boxing on a window pane that' his ' hired man couldn't get any sleep. The bird [kept after his own Image day after day until the hired man complained and insisted he was going to kill the bird. Burroughs solved the problem by suggesting that his employe pull down the window shade. "He did, and that was the end of the battle. "Other bMls probably will do the same thing as the robin and the bJiiP bh^, if they would build their nests close to houses where they 'would be close to window panes. It ib because the lobln and blue bird are most domet>ticated and build their nest near the houses that then- shadow boxing proclivities are so ao- ticeable." in no oUier way can the industry be righted and set moving in an upward path. The bankers, handling the financial affairs of the oil men, have become resigned to the probability of federal control; at least temporary, and actually hope that as much good can be done to petroleum by Vise federal administration as was done to the banks. Marketers of petroleum products, especially of motor fuel, also have assumed the attitude of "try any- t3aiag once—things can't be worse," although they,! too, almost as a unit, wish that some ^way could be worked out without aid of the federal government. ! The constant turmoillin the East Texas and Oklahoma City oil fields has convinced many that pttm- tlon as a means of stabilizing the industry through cooperation of state governments with the oil producers has failed utterly. Unrestrictecl production of wells by some companies in Oklahoma City last week pushed dally production to beyond the 250,000-barrel mark. That volume was reported, and there have been chronic violators whQ flow their wells with or without official permission whenever they can ^et away with it. East Texas last week officially reported production was around 400,000 barrels dally, but state authorities have estimated this was not more than half the actual output. •When the American Petroleum Institute's special committee met in Texas and Oklahoma a few days ago with the oil men of the two states It was agreed that proration wias to exist only on sufferance, and that It must prove Its efficacy or be discarded. Texas has had no adequate pro­ ration orders, rebellious operators breaking them down every time they went into court. The status of the Oklahoma statutes has been placed in question by frequent legal attacks, and i the legislature still was debating provisions of a rewritten law today. Destructive forces have gained such momentum state control has been conceded only a bare possibility of success by such figures of the Industry as Harry P. Sinclair, R. C. Holmes of the Texas company, and other large independents. The squabbling of Mjonday and Tuesday bd^^reen the majors and tli^ various Independent groups In Washington did much to destroy the optimism that prevailed when Secretary Ickes first called the Washington conference. There was fear the parley had resolved Itself into "just another meeting" of which there have been scores in recent years without success.

IF YOU MISS TBS ItBOZST^ OAliL 187 OR 630, • aw San Pedro, Calif.. Mar. 29. (AP) George Bernard Shaw, whltje-whls- kered Irish dramatist sailed for New York last night on the Empres* of Britain, traveling by way of the Panama Canal and nearing the end of an around the world cruise. While the hypercritical iconoclast leffr-in Ills wake in southern California a number of screen celebrities who were Impressed by his visit despite his caustic remark ihat he would return sometime and "show you how to make pictures," there was at least one person who , had come In close contact with i the dramatist who saw nothing unusual in Oiaw 's brief sojourn. When the airplane carrying Shaw from San Simeon to Los Angeles was forced down on the beach yesterday near Mallbu, George Gray O'Connor, a sophomore at the University of California at Los Angeles, happened along in his dllelpldated automobile. Mr. and Mrs. Shaw accepted O'Connor 's invitation for a bouncing ride to Mallbu, "Now that I think of it," said O'Connor, "I can't recall a cockeyed thing said by Mr. Shaw that was really funny." I Ann Hardhig and Alice | screen actresses, probably O'Connor's opinion. j To Miss Harding, who had proudly told Shaw she had played the part of Lady CecUy In "jCaptaln Brassboilnd's Conversion," thp dramatist had bluntly told her, '|it must have been a piratical performance." "Indeed, It was not," the actre^ told him. "We had permi^on in writing from your own agent." The actress then hurriedlyjleft the dramatist, entered a dressing room, closed the door—and wept. No One told Shaw he had driven her to tears. On meeting Miss Brady, the dramatist said bluntly: "Why does a girl with a pretty face wear a hat like that." No one recorded Miss Brady's reply. Just before the Empress of Britain sailed, Shaw was asked: What did you see down here?" Nothing," he replied, "but rocks, grass, vegetables, and Ami Brady, share BEER MUG INSTEAD OF BOMB Postmaster Learns Roosevelt's Life Not Threatened After Au.

(AP)— President Roosevelt asked congress to provide federal supervision of investment securities. In anoth^ direct special message —his sixth'in less than three weeks —the chief exe«itlve declaired Uie public has sustained "severe losses throu^ practices nelQier ethical nor honest" Thereupon, he proposed to Invoke the power of the federal government in interstate commerce traffic to control new securities. Preparations abready were tmder way in house and senate to expedite the newest administration legislation. Representative Ray*bum (D. Tex.) said hearings would be held by the interstate commerce committee, which he heads, possibly starting tomorrow. He endorsed.the proposals, and Introduced the bill when the message had been read. The president also Informed congress he would propose soon legislation "relating to the better supervision of the purchase and sale of all properties dealt in on exchanges" He also spoke of legislation he has in mind "to correct unethical and unsafe practices on the part of officers and directors of banks and other corporations." Bankers Are Trustees. "What we seek." Mr. Roosevelt said, "is a return to a clear underr standing of the ancient truth that those who manage banks, corporations and other agencies htundltag or using other people's money are trustees acting for others.- The president's text today follows: "To the congress: "I i«conuaend to the congress legislation for federal supervision of traffic In investment securities in Interstate commerce. "In spite of many state statutes the public in the past has sustained severe losses through practices neither ethical nor honest on the part of many persons and corporations selling securities. "Of course,'the federal government cannot and should not take any action which might be construed as approving or guaranteeing that newly issued seciuitles are sound in the sense that theh- value will be maintained or that the-properties which they represent will earn profit. "There Is, however, an obligation upon us to insist that every Issue of now securities to be sold in Interstate commeroe shall be accompanied by full publicity and information, and that no essentially important element attending the issue shall be concealed from the buying public, Seller Included. "This proposal adds to the ancient rule of Caveat Emptor, the furthci- doctrine 'let the seller also beware.' "It puts the burden of telling the whole truth on the seller. "It should give Impetus to honest dealing in securities and thereby bring back pubUo confidence. "The purpose of the legislation I suggest Is to protect the public with the least possible interference to honest business. "This Is but one step in our broad purpose of proteoting Investors and depositors. "It should be followed by legislation relating to the better supervision of the purchase and sale of all property dealtl in on exchanges and by legislation to correct unethical and unsafe practices on the part ot officers and .dhrctors of banks and other corpoi^lohs.

(AP)— With the expectation that a program of government regulations to stabilize the oil, hidustry woiild gain approval, state and federal ofBcials and oil producers pushed ahead with work on details o£ the plan' today preparatory to final adtion. Secretary Ickes had'not formally approved the plan submitited by representatives of the goveipors of oil producing states, major companies and some independents, but he was described as in accord with major provisions. The program calls for a representative to work with representatives of the oil states, for an agreement to fix the daily quota ^of each state on the basis of [present and potentlial production. S^raretary Ickes has suggested a 2 millipn barrel dally maximum for the country at large. Once this agreement is reached a federal law will be ask'ed to i)revent the Interstate shipnient of oil produced in violation of a state's quota regulations, or the legislation ml^t be requested beforehand in anticipation of an agreement. ! Oil men expressed belief ^ that' a federal statute to limit illegal tater- state shipments of oil would end over-production, since 'the saturation in a state for petroleum pi»- duced In violation of regiilatlons soon would be reached. Although most of the Independent companies at the admhiistra-' tlon sponsored conference were -in accord with the conclusions Ireacljed a group led by John B. EUlott of Los Angeles still was strongly Opposed to the plan outlined. The Elliott group saw Secretary Ickes today and presented a program for divorcement of Oil pipe lines engaged In Interstate commerce from other branches of il}e Industry and urged that this Interstate commerce commission: enforce fah: and reasonable" rates tOr be charged by the pipe lines, i Elliott said he had an engagement with President Rooseyelt today to teU hiih how he felt about the matter.
