SUNDAYJ NOVEMBER RALPH CAPONE : GIVEN NUMBER AT U.S. PRISON Al May Join Him And Other , Gangsters For Reunion At Leavenworth CONVICT MAY BE ASSIGNED WORK AFTER 14-DAY TEST LEAVENWORTH. KAN, Nor. 7. ff) Ralph Capone, swarthy elder brother of "Scut tee Al." dropped hi title "Chicago Public Enemy Mo. J" today to assume a longer numeral, assigned to hira at the Federal prison which he entered to serve a three-year term tor Income tax evasion. The brother of Chicago's canffland overlord, who is expected at Leavenworth shortly himself to serrs a 10-year sentence on a similar conviction, was "just another Federal prisoner," to Warden T. B. White. "Ralph ha begun to realize' that, too," was the only comment on Capone's tint reaction to prison life, brought from within the red brick wall by Deputy Marshal William O. Thompson. The deputy marshal guarded Capone from Chicago to the receiving room where Capone exchanged his dark, well tailored business suit for drab prison denim. The convict who owes hi sentence to failure to pay a $300,000 Government Income tsx claim shuffled through the prison gate at t:lS am today handcuffed to one of IS "smaB time" prisoners accompanying him. He encountered the same routine which confronted each of the other 3,028 convicts Incarcerated there, Warden White said. ' This meant that the gangster, who breakfasted at leisure on a Burlington Railroad dining car hurrying him to Imprisonment, lunched in the mess room on prison fare, his Identity concealed by a number known only to Federal authorities. It meant a prison bath and hours in a small receiving cell, part of the 14-day quarantine during which authorities will determine by physical and other examinations the task to which Capone will be assigned. "I understand Warden White is a fair man," Capone said as he rode toward the prison, commenting upon his probable treatment. - "We expect no trouble from Ralph Capone or his brother Al either, if they send him here," Warden White remarked. Al Capone is in Jail In Chicago. It has been reported he may elect to come to Leavenworth pending action on his appeal in order to gain credit on his penitentiary sentence in the event the higher court decides he must serve. 1 - Guards who accompanied the brother of Chicago's "Public Enemy No. 1," quoted him a saying: "I hope the crime wave will be over by the time I get out" He apparently referred to gang killings in Chicago. "It's been a very enjoyable trip down here," he told an Interviewer, "but I think it will be much more enjoyable going back." Capone was In an affable mood on the train. In contrast to his sullennesi before departing from Chicago but he was not so cheerful when the prison gate loomed before him. "It is much easier to evade the Income tax than the newspaper guys," he said with a laugh. ..Warden White said the Capone colony at Leavenworth consisting of Ralph,"-Frank Nlttl and Sam Gusllt, and expected to be reinforced shortly by "Scar-fare Al" and Jack Gusik, ail come to grief through failure to pay Income tax, might hold a reunion within the prison. They Willi have an opportunity, the warden said, to meet during "yard privilege" or a general period of recreation. , Ralph Capone will be eligible for pa-role after serving two years and five months. . - - .

Wonderful tonlolexatlve chases WILLI Ultfj " - Pa lll ' 111 ASHURST 12 Court 8, 1931 By 1 - v X, A In August, while the highway southwest from the city limits to cross Ca-toma Creek was being paved It was necessary to reach the Seima Road by going the old "Stone's Tank" rout. As I passed the "Little Doctor Stone bouse" nine miles West of Montgomery, and turned left into the "poor bouse road" to go across to the Selma highway. I thought of General Woodward and the first dancing school hi Montgomery County. ' Thomas Simpson Woodward was bora in Elbert County, Georgia, Feb. 22. IW. His birthplace was a log house in the old stockade at Shockley's Ferry, one time the Cherokee Indian creasing on Savannah River between the mouths of Lightwood Log and Powder Log Creeks. His father was a young Revolutionary patriot of a family out of England, who came with Calvert, Lord Baltimore, to Maryland, moved to Virginia and subsequently lived in Fairfield District, 8. C. His mother was Mary Howard, of Union District, S. O. Thomas Woodward, Sr. the grandfather of Thomas 8, married the widow May. She was Elizabeth Stokes, daughter of an early settler near Beaufort, South Carolina, ' namd Thomas Stokes, an Englishman. The latter married the daughter of a Spaniard named Silvester. Old Thomas was a captain in the French and Indian War and a captain in the South Carolina Line in the Revolution. He was killed in action at Dutchman' Creek on May 13. nil. Three of his sons and eight of his sons-in-law fought under Nathaniel Greene at Eutaw Springs. Ben May, his wife's son by her former husband, took his itfp-father's old company into that engagement. Bsyheed at Thomas S. His father having died when he was three, young Thomas was an orphan before he was nine years of age. His first schooling was under John Posey, who was teaching in the Georgia State House at Mllledgevllle. The boy was over-sized and also very backward, and the consequent embarrassment prevented his having even the rudiments of an education. However life' experiences were rich gifts to this man who left, in his "Reminiscences," a fine -a history of his 45 year In Georgia and Alabama a was ever left by any man who lived here in that period, 1800 to 1840. Of course the volume, which 1 a compilation of letters, lacks , literary merit, but 4n detail and meat of data it Is unsurpassed. The "Reminiscences" Johnson J. Hooper, then editing; the Montgomery Mail, wrote the introduction Jan. 13, 1859, and Barrett and Wlmblsh the predecessors of the present Brown Printing Company of Montgomery, published the volume in the Spring of that year. .These letter were contributed between May 2, 1857 and Christmas, 1858, and many of them were originally written to Edward Hanrick, "Horse Shoe Ned." a North Carolinian, then a resident of Montgomery. They were not intended for publication and therefore are that much more valuable as an actual picture of the incidents which happened in this new and developing country. Woodward takes issue frequently with Colonel Al bert J. Pickett, whose "History of Alabama" had been recently put into cir culation. He elaborates on many of Col. Pickett's references and gives much new material as the data in Col. Pickett's book goes only to 1820. Military Service. ' Woodward entered the TJ. 8. Army on July 1, 1812, and served mainly as a Georgia volunteer until May, 1814. He was with General Daniel Newman in Florida, and served in the Colebee and Autossee campaigns against the Creek Indians in 1813 and 1814. He was a sergeant in General Floyd's army, and on the return of the Georgians to their homes. Col. Milton, U. 8. A., put woodward in command of Fort Hud. Later he served as an aide to Col Milton, and after the Third U. 8. Infantry left the Coosa with Jackson on his march to Pensacola, Col. Milton assuming command of his old regiment Sergt. Woodward left the army and lived among his friends, the Indians, here in the Nation for a time. He was temporarily again in the army in 1815; served in the Florida War in 1817 and 1818 with the rank of major, and came to Alabama territory and entered land before 1820. He was elected brigadier general of Alabama militia in August of that year. . Married in Dallas County Book "D," "Marriages Alabama Territory," Dallas County, as entery "No. 32" shows on August 3, 1820, Thomas S. Woodward and Sarah Ann Du Bose (Letter of consent from Peter DuBcee, of Dallas County to marriage of his daughter, 'Sarah Ann DuBose to Thomas 8. Woodward). General Woodward resided a few years in Dallas County, was living near Montgomery in 1832, and entered property "on the ridge" In Macon County in 1833. His tract, which he sold shortly, thereafter to James Dent, was the first tot in the town of Tuskegee. While he resided In Montgomery County, he taught" dancing lessons at the house of Isaac .Langsdale, where later the above mentioned home of Dr. Stone was built Langsdale was a Delaware soldier in the American Revolution, who married in North Carolina, and moved with John Bullard and his friends to North Montgomery, (now Elmore County) about 1820. He sold his property on our "old Selma Road," in 1841 and went to live in Fayette County, where a short time afterwards he died. His grandchildren reside at Lu-verne today. Tom Paxton, once a fiddler on the steamboat "Cotton Plant" was General Woodward's musician. Experience In the Indian War While he was with the George Volunteer at Fort Hull in 1814, Col. Milton needed an "express" to go to Fort Mitch-ell on the Chattahoochee. Sergt. Woodward agreed to make the trip,- then con. slreded extremely hazardous. As he had no shoes he borrowed a pair and with poisons out of th system overnight Chronic constipation almost always lead to serious stomach, liver and kidney disorders . . biliousness . . indigestion . . bloating after eating . . dizziness and even neuritis.

Brannon George Lovett, a half-breed Indian from Coweta, "stepped over" the t miles to Fort Mitchell one night and returned the next Daniel Twiggs, then a captain in the Seventh TJ. S. Infantry, later to see distinguished service in the war with Mexico, , was his superior in the garrison service at Fort Bull and Fort Decatur, and because Sergt. Woodward "beat-up" a regular army "non-com" he was put in "the stocks," need even that late to punish infraction of military rule. For quite a while tat 1814, Woodward was at "Manae's Cowpens." This was Sam Manae's plantation on Pinchona Creek where the Federal Road crossed. This site is a short distance west of the old Grange Hall school (Pintlala School) tat West Montgomery County. Many of the Indians who went subsequently to Florida were at this point tor a time after the surrender of Weatherford and the chiefs In April of that year. Oen. Jackson sent Woodward and the white men who were friendly with the Indian to Manae's pasture to see if they could find sufficient cattle to feed these natives, who on account of the' war had not been given the chance to raise any corn or food. Founds the Tew ef Taskegee Gen. Woodward, as the first land own. er on the ridge, may be said to have been the founder of the town of Tuskegee. James Dent was the first settler on the square there. When they had plotted the town, Gen. Woodward named it for the Indian village Taskigi, at the mouth of the Coosa River, without doubt an Allbano Indian town later inhabited by Creeks. The old Woodward house In Tuskegee was near the present Juncture of the Columbus and Union Springs roads about a mile east of the courthouse. In late years It was one of the Campbell places. Oen. Woodward set out here in 1833 five cedar sprouts from Osceola' birthplace. They grew to be great trees, but about 10 or IS years ago they were cut down as they shaded the growing cotton too much. His Friendships With Later Prominent Men Arthur P. Bagby, Sam Dale,' Col. Charles McLemore, Phillip Fltrpstrlck, James Jackson, Nick Davis and many other politicians of that day were Oen. Woodward's persons friends. Dr. Wil-11am Wyatt Bibb, Alabama's first governor, was the first man he ever heard make a political speech. He was present as a child at the gathering In the Elbert County courthouse In Georgia m 1804. Though he differed with Col. Albert J. Pickett, he was a great admirer of the historian. His one criticism of Col. Pickett was that he possessed too great confidence in the honesty of mankind. Boiling Hall and Oen. Woodward were friend before they settled in Alabama. Moves Te Arkansas Gen. Woodward left Macon County, Alabama, in 1841, residing In Arkansas Territory until 1853 when he moved to Winn Parish, La, and died there in 1861. His wife and every one of a large family of children preceded him to the grave. Life in his last years was filled with many vicissitudes. It Is Only Grain Selling At Price Higher Than That Of Year Ago CHICAGO, Nov. 7. (ffji Rye bread, the other half of a corned beef sandwich, may be a scarce article this Winter. Long regarded a "poor relation" of wheat as a bread grain because of the disparity in the size of the crops, rye has gone quietly along the way until now it is the only grain selling at a price higher than that of a year ago. The close today on the Board of Trade was 19 to 20 1-2 cents more than the low point of a month ago and approximately 10 cents higher than a year ago. Rye closed today at 54 to 80 1-4 cents a bushel. For various options as compared with 48 cents a year ago. Official estimates on the size of the 1931 rye crop placed It at 757,281,000 bushels for the entire world. Last year the actual harvest was 921,644,000 bushels, leaving this year's crop 164,363,000 bushels short. The United States harvested 48,149,000 bushels in 1930. Latest official estimates for 1931 place the crop at approximately 36,000,000 bushels. Two of the great rye producing and rye consuming nations reported sharply reduced harvests this year. Germany harvested 302,000,000 bushels In 1930,vbut placed this year's crop at 273,000,000. Poland garnered 273,923,000 bushels last year, but estimated only 214,161,000 bushels for this year. The huge rye crop shortage this year was blamed on the weather. The United States .was too hot and dry and in Europe it was floods and rainy weather during the harvest season. . Chicago traders specializing In rye said the situation was veiled in doubt. They knew the probable size of the crop out said that the proportion available for milling purposes was in doubt They said that with much of the crop damaged by drouth, undoubtedly many kernals were shriveled, which would make the grain unfit for flour. Excellent flour can be made from shriveled wheat, but the rye kernal is smaller and when shriveled and shrunken does not yield enough flour to pay for the grinding. Shriveled rye Is reduced to the catgory of feed grain. Various conditions, traders said, pointed to the conclusion that a large percentage of the crop had been virtually eliminated as a milling proposition by the drouth and excessive heat beforv harvest time. , The light movement of the grain to market,' fewer than a dozen cars a day in Chicago, Duluth and Minneapolis, ordinarily the great rye market centers, was ascribed to feeding. Producers finding their grain shrunken were unable to market it for milling purposes and were feeding it to livestock as the only way In which it could be used profitably. Russia was expected to supply much of the shortage, but reports reaching this country indicated a short crop. Russia recently advanced rye quotations to Liverpool seven cents' a bushel.

WORLD IS FACING SHORTAGE IN RYE ADVERTISER What Would You Do? i - - i He stood Irresolutely on the walk near the entrance to the big shop; he stared unseelngly and with little show of emotion first one way, then the other. .The grim, one-sided set of hi lips, the furrows between his troubled eyes, the stoop of shoulders that were broad and that once must have been strong, seemed to convey his unspoken thoughts: . "Is this the end of the road?" He passed a hand over the graying stubble on his cheek. He shook his head quickly, as if to toes a blur from his eyes, thrust his fists Into the pockets of pants that once were good, and stood for a moment contemplating the toes of his weather-worn shoes. " 'Sorry, old man, nothing doing today.' Oh, God, must I go home and tell them the same old story? Must I endure their piteous expressions, that cut accusingly through my very soul? God, I knew it looks like I'm a washout but cant ycu see I've tried? A year ago, you know, I had a Job; these kids that are watching for me now watched then, too.

Several weeks ago Equity announced It was trying to interest Broadway producer in a scheme to subsidize struggling playwrights. , , Today Alfred Harding, Equity official, pointed to a basketful of letters on bis desk and said: "We havent found the subsidize yet, but there are those anxious to be subsidized in every corner of the country." The letters were from college professors, Kentucky mountaineers, inmates of old people's homes and bank clerks; from Riverside Drive, the oil fields of Texas and the cotton land of the South; from university graduates, spinsters and song writer. Most of them had written plays they thought Broadway "would Just go wild about." Others told of stubborn fights to find the time, while earning their bread 'ANGELS' IVilSSING FOR PLAYVRIGHTS Sterling Silver Values At Klein & Son NEW YORK, Oct l.(A.P. Simon Guggenheim, president of the American Smelting and Reflnlng-company, on hin return from Europe today, said that' of all the metals silver appeared destined fit the moment for the aranteet future. "As a direct result of the economic disturbances all over the world and the temporary suspension of the gold standard In most European countrlen," he said, "I believe that . silver will come into ita own.
