Operators from at least a half dozen states were in attendance when the hearing opened today with Wayne Ellis, deputy administrator in charge of the soft coal code, presiding. The recovery administration did not appear. Accuses Administration. Johnston accused the recovery administration of violating the recovery act and the soft coal code in imposing new wage and hour scales without giving the industry a hearing before so doing. The NRA order, Johnston added, has increased Alabama wages $1.20 a day, had closed mines, and thrown 15,000 miners out of work in that state. He attacked the "militaristic idea" behind the order and said one of its worst effects was to disturb the peaceful relation between the operators and the miners "by giving the impression to the men in the field that the companies were able to pay any wage" when, he said, even at tie old wage scale the Alabama operators were losing 17 cents a ton.

But I went to the McAuley Funeral Home with her to make arrangements and I know you are wrong. "We saw such a display of caskets that it didn't take us long to select the one for the beautiful service you attended. It and every casket there had the price marked in plain figures. "That's how I know Joe's funeral was very reasonable. I could tell you the exact cost, but out of respect for him and his wife I don't think I should.

Democrats said today that if Dr. William A. Wirt produces the goods when he takes the stand tomorrow, the house of representatives will spend "plenty of money" to sift his charges of a red plot. Representative Byrns of Tennessee, democratic leader, answered R e p r e s e n t a t i v e McGugin (R-, Kans.), who charged that democrats were "starving" the inquiry to death by appropriating only $500 for it. Byrns said that if the Gary. Ind., educator discloses anything "worth investigating" more money will be spent. "We presumed that if Dr. Wirt named any 'brain trusters' he would name 'brain trusters' who are in Washington," Byrns said. "Any others couldn't have had much influence in bringing on .this Kerensky-Stalin revolution he talks about. "That $500 ought to be enough to cover expenses for the trip from Gary to Washington, especially since I'm sure the committee won't 'want to keep him more than one day. "But if the need develops, the house has a contingent fund big enough to provide plenty of money."

COLD DILLINGER TRAIL IS FOUND (Continued From PnRC 1) ered in recent days, led police to cling to their belief that Dillinger is still in this section, despite reports that he has been seen in other parts of the country. There is some evidence, too, that Dillinger was wounded in the leg when, with the Frechetti woman, he shot his way out of a St. Paul apartment House March 31. Eugene Green, a Dfllinger associate who also escaped from the apartment house by fighting off police with machine gun fire but who was captured a few days later, is near death in a St Paul hospital. He was severely wounded by police bullets when he, with a woman companion, was captured last week- ANCHORS AWEIGH FOR U,S, FLEET 101 Fighting Craft Finish Stay of Two Years on Pacific Coast. SAN PEDRO, Cal., April 9. "Anchors aweigh" was the order among the 101 fighting craft of the United States fleet today. Terminating a two year stay on. the Pacific coast, the fleet was under orders to proceed to the east coast, through the Panama canal. The movement meant a giant tactical problem. Fifteen giant patrol planes, the largest units of the navy's aircraft, poised for a takeoff from San Diego to fly in four hops of about 700 milea each to the Panama canal. They will rejoin the fleet there April 21. Seventy-five officers and the men will make the flight. Simultaneously the navy's giant of the air, the U. S. S. Macon, was to cast off from Sunnyvale, Cal. The dirigible will return to Sunnyvale after joining the fleet in the first of the war games which will occupy the 35,000 fighting men throughout most of their cruise to the east coast. Conditions of war will be stimulated by the fleet in its journey to the canal. Only the roar and smoke of actual gunfire will be missing in. the constant maneuvers, which will test the tactical strategy of commanding officers. \ a SAYS WIRT WAS VICTIM OF JOKE (Continued From l'«ge 1) vas to be replaced later by a Stalin." In the first of the four articles-he one entitled "shall we save debt- rs, creditors or both?--these remarks are made: "Has the citizen in America the ight to live while he is trying to get a job? Must the citizen in onerica starve when he is not able o work? Starved tp;Teath. , _ -; .-"'During' tlie :days : .of VLouia the Fourteenth m France, citizens of glorious France did lie down by the roadside and die of starvation. But such conditions brought on the French revolution. "If American property owners cannot pay for the yprotection o£ their own property, soon they will not have any property. Neither creditors nor debtors can be saved. Both will perish and other property owners as well. "In America, as in Russia, the proletariat will take the responsibility and the property. If a revolution is necessary the proletariat will give us that too. There will not be any 'gravy.'

Byrd, labor's representative on the board, might retire. Byrd, however, declined to discuss the rumor and went ahead with the board's session when it met this forenoon. McGrady, who had planned to return to Washington Saturday, said today he intended to :'stay in Detroit until the situation here is cleared up." Settlement Falls. Coming close upon the failure of its plan for a settlement of the strike in Wisconsin plants of the Nash Motors company and an affiliate, where 4,600 men are out, the board met another rebuff yesterday when striking workers of the Motor Products corporation rejected a settlement program drawn up by the board. The labor tribunal was seeking a new basis of settlement for that strike and also for averting the threatened walkout next Thursday of tool and diemakers employed in nearly three score Detroit job shops. The tool and diemakers are demanding a 20 per cent wage increase and a 36 hour, five day week. On College Debate Team. OSAGE.
