THE HARTFORD DAILY COURANT: SUNDAY, JANUARY 6, 1935. Wirepliotos Heaped High With Praise Street Sales of Atlanta Paper Rise 30 Per Cent With Pictures Many Executives Comment Camera Burglar Alarm Catches Thief On Job Messages expressing satisfaction at the effectiveners of the new Associated Press Wirepliotos. which made their initial appearance New Year's Dav, have been pouring into the New York office of the photo service from newspaper officials irom all parts of the country. Among the significant statements was one by W. P. Caldwell, news editor of the Atlanta Journal, Atlanta,, Ga to the effect that street sales of that paper rose 30 per cent in one day, January 2. Prediction that the new Wire- photo will introduce "a sensationally new era of spot news advertising" was made by Edward S. Jordan of South Bend, Ind., national representative of the Suidebaker Corporation and former president of the Jordan Motor Car Corporation, in an article appearing January 3 in the Syracuse Herald. Mr. Jordan termed the new service as "the most significant development in journalism since the invention of the telegraph." Comment of Newspapermen. Comments by officials of newspapers carrying the Wirephoto service follow: Marvin H. Creaet-r. managing editor, Milwaukee Jousnac "The Wire-photo Wire Service today was excellent. The Journal hod five pictures on the Hauptma.nn trial in its home edition, in.-v.idmg the picture of Haptmann entering the courtroom on its first page. The Hauptmann pictures timed with th9 opening of the trial put the Wirephoto idea over very effectively." Knocked Them Out ol Chairs. Hal Leysnon. managing editor, Miami Daily Nevs: ' We knocked them out of their chairs yesterday (January 3) with Confess opening in a 2:15 p. m. home edition." George B. Armstead, managing editor, Hartford Coura.it: "The implication of wide notentiai developments suggested by the marvelous results in picture transmission obtained the New Year's day by the Wirephoto fires the imagination. Feats in news gathering now entirely possible mean that a new day has dawned for pub'itiners and editors. The mechanics of newspaper making will be altered in a few short years more than they have been in my 30 year's experience. Commercial applications of thij device will be, even more extensive than the great benefits to be dcrved by newspapers. The Rase Bowl football pic ture and tne new Year ceieora-tions in California were displayed in The Hartford Courant with marked effect and convinced even the most lothargic minds that they were seeing something comparable to the invention of the. electric light, the rotary press, and tne linotype." Edward S. Beck, managing editor, Chicago Tribune: ' Wirephoto has already proved ite elf cne of the greatest steps in the progress of newspaper making. Dan J. Mahoney, general manager. Miami Daily News: Wirephoto illustrated its velue mast strikingly today ' January 2) in picturing the opening of the Hauptmann trial. Here was an event of prime interest to the nation presented with clear action pictures of the principals accompanying the word story in par- l? ? - . ,j - s J f v:-?' ' ?" iv.v''-:;.vr' A , 4 AP Wircplioto. St. Louis, Jan. 5. Frank Aichele, who;e tire shop was robbed 13 times m five years, arranged a camera burglar alarm. Yesterday he gave police a photo (above) taken automatically by a man who Thursday night set off two automobile horns, two flashlights and a camera, then fled. This picture was sent out at 4 p. m., Friday. ticipating newspapers from coast to coast, an achievement heretofore impassible. The photographs of all major football contests played on New Year's Day also provided a smashing demonstration of Wirephoto possibilities. Well Pleased' With Service. William Haggard, managing editor, Washington Post: Well pleased with first Associated Press Wire-photos. The transmission was satisfactory and the copy on the whole was fine. The picture of the Rose Bowl was exceptionally good and enabled us to make a smash which brought favorable comment. Gardner Cowles, Jr., executive editor, and Basil Walters, managing editor, Des Moines Register & Tribune: Wirephoto has revolutionized newspapers almost overnight. The results in both quality and in arousing public interest have far ex ceeded our expectations. Newspaper- mg nas Kept up witn progress, vve are anticipating a resulting increase of interest among readers as a reward of this broad step. Wirephoto has set the pace for other industries. James M, Cox, publisher, Dayton Daily News: If reaction in this part of the country is a true index, then the Wirephoto will be more revolutionary in its general effect upon the newspaper business than we anticipated. Selection of pictures has been excellent and reproduction above expectations. Tioncer Development. Dean Carl W. Ackerman. School of Journalism, Columbia University: This is a pioneer development in American journalism. I had the great privilege of watching the transmission of Wirepliotos from New York to the four corners of the United States and from the most important news picture centers of this country to New York. Here is a marvelous synchronization of science and journalism which will mark an epochal day in the history of the press. T. J. Dillon, managing editor, Minneapolis Tribune: Wirephoto results with few exceptions have been excellent. The tieup with the news on football games, the Haptmann trial and the "Lexington" sinking is a sensation. N. E. Gordon, managing editor, Portland, Me., Express and Press Herald: A tremendous step forward in photographic transmission. The quality of the pictures is beyond all expectations. Palmer Hoyt, managing editor, the Portland Orcgonian : Wirephotos exceeded even our most enthusiastic expectations. It surely means a new era in newspaper publishing. It puts Portland 36 to 48 hours nearer New York with pictures. Doug Will Re Only Star In His 'Finest Picture' Paris, Jan. 5. (AP.) Tradition will be thrown overboard when Douglas Fairbanks sails to the South Seas to film his next motion picture, for it wiE be a South Sea island story without a heroine. "There will be only one star that's me," said the actor today. "I shall be accompanied by geologists, historians and a host of other advisers. Native islanders will be my fellow artists. I will write the story." Fairbanks, who is on his way to the Swiss Alps for winter sports, said it would be his "finest picture." 10, JANUARY of FINE SHOES and HOSIERY This is the week in which to stock up on fine shoes and hosiery from Simmons' for you are sure of quality merchandise at greatly reduced prices.

(Special.) Thermometers in this vicinity dropped to the lowest point of the winter Saturday morning reaching 18 degrees below zero in some places. At Millbrook on the Norfolk Road it was 14 below and the same temperature was reported at Still River Bridge. Unemployment in France has increased nearly 50 per cent in the last year. Store Charge For Bottles Reinstated Milk Hoard Hears Dealers and Storekeepers Argue for Retention of 5-Cent Deposit The five-cent charge for milk bottles at stores was reinstated by the State Milk Control Board, following a hearing in the State Office Building Saturday afternoon. Milk dealers and grocerymen attending the hearing were nearly unanimous In favor of continuing the charge, and in a vote taken at the cloee of discusssion, urged its retention by a 6 to 1 margin. At the close of the hearing the board, which had first revoked the charge in the Hartford area at the request of a group of dealers and then suspended the ruling pending Saturday's hearing, announced that the charge would be reinstated in this area. S. S. Boshman of the Home Circle Stores told the board that from 110 stores in his association, not a single complaint against the five-cent charge for lwttles has been received. M. J. Burnham of West Hartford, a director of the Connecticut Retail Grocers Association and a member of the legislative committee of the association, said that it would not be fair to the dealers to discontinue the charge. Charles Gershwin, a storekeeper, favored retention of the bottle charge pointing out that it is an advantage to tne storekeeper, since customers in returning the bottle frequently take the refund out in trade. The Brookside Dairies filed an exhibit in which it was stated that the Department of Agriculture statistics show that where no bottle charge is made, milk bottles make an average maximum of 20 trips, while where the charge is enforced, from 80 to 90 trips are the rule. It was declared that many dealers and producer-dealers failed because they furnished free bottles. Speakers were in agreement that Where no bottle charge is made, customers are careless about returning bottles, and it was also pointed out that in some cases it has been found that men and boys make a "racket" of collecting bottles and selling them to dealers at from one to three cents apiece where no bottle charge is made. No one spoke in favor of eliminating the charge. The Milk Control Board conferred briefly at the close of the meeting, and William E. Templeton, who had been presdiing, announced that the board would order the charge retained. Hoover Gaining: Weight, Omaha, Neb., Jan. 5. (AP.) Former President Hoover is picking up weight. He said last night that he had gained three pounds since he left the White House. He made his comment when he stopped over for lunch at a railroad station while on his way to Chicago on "private business." -O Announcements Jerome Mayer, Real Estate Appraising, 238 Oxford Street. r Marriage Licenses -0 The following .marriage license applications were filed Saturday at the Bureau of Vital Statistics: James Gentile, laborer, and Elinor Vivolo, both of Columbia Gardens.

Trotzky Hints Russia Attempting to Obtain Expulsion From France Parts, Jan. 5. (AP.) Leon Trotzky, exiled Communist leader, hints in an article published today that Soviet authorities are attempting to obtain his expulsion from France. The article, printed In "La Ver-ite," a friendly Communist newspaper, asserts charges by Joseph Stalin's supporters that he was involved in the assassination of Sergei Kiroff are a maneuver "to bring pressure to bear on French authorities." Recent reports that Moscow would request Trotzky's extradition brought a reply from French authorities that they would not oust him. age-Allen 7 Offer a Splendid Chance to Save On asses Special This Week t $'"7.45 Gl 0. . m"uw . p.ub. mi) nni n ,w ; ,.w m cv : 4, r At i Complete , . .
