The secret seemed to be in the statement of "first line" military air- plimcs, 190 short of the first line strength to be reached under the rearmament program. But behind these "first line" planes there arc ;many more--how many more has never been announced. They are idnlical with the first line phmcs and many ore actually with t!ie first line squadrons. It was indicated that there was an astonishing reserve strength even now and that within one year there would be about six reserve planes for each first line one. That would mean an eventual strength of about 12,250 airplanes based on a first line strength of 1,750. Hauls Wife's Body Among Candy Goods; Son Cause 1 ; Arrest Grim Reaper MRS. JANE A.

He was born in Ravenna, Ohio, n son of Mr. and Mrs. William MerLs and came to Uniontown in 1895 as head clerk in the store of John Lynch Company. Until 1910, he was attached to that business. Later he became a partner in the Penn State Amusement Company and engngod in the transfer of coal land leases. In November. 1905, he mnrricd Miss Ella Gibson. To that union, a daughter, D;ma, was born. Mr. Mcrts was a member of the First Presbyterian Church. Continued from Page One. both had agreed on a divorce, he said. Then he fell heir to a $1,500 legacy from a relative in the East. He said his wife demanded the Sl.flOO us a property settlement. That started the quarrel. j "Siic pointed a rcvjolvcr at me =md I got a riilc and shot hcr through the head." It was 10:30 at night, the houses m the neighborhood were all closed against the cold weather, and none of the neighbors heard the shot, riuit night. Hughes told Sheriff Lewis Worker, he wrapped the body in a blanket and tied it with a clothes line. In the morning nc carried it out to the car, along with his samples. He called on several customers, who knew him as a jovial, dignified iv.nn who managed his candy route well and looked on life with satisfaction. He looked younger than his 52 years. Hughes made several calls at various towns and it was still daylight, he said, when he decided to bury the body "because it bothered me." He got the job done before anybody passed nlong the road. Nothing more happened, until the j sheriff stopped him yesterday. Mrs. Hughes' shallow grave was 20 miles cnst of here. After recciv- I ing the son's reports, authorities had j searched Hughes' home at Puoblo 1 and found there the evidence they j needed--pieces of burned clothing, | buttons in a furnace and blood spots on a chair.

SECOND NATIONAL STAFF REELECTED Continued from A'.IRC One. Shcrntrd assistant, cnshicr. About ten years ago. tn llic days ol the McXary-IIaugcn Bill, the late Senator R. B. Howcll used to tell the farmers of the Middle West the manufacturers enjoyed special advantages in that they were under the wins of the tariff and In t h a t they c o u l d s h u t down when orders failed and p r i c e s C e l l , w h e r e a s t h e f a r m e r could not let his land lie Idle, but must carry on regardless of prices and even try to produce more when they were low. A similar, though not identical advantage, he said, was enjoyed by the labor unions, which restricted membership. Insisted on more than competitive \vaj;es, and thus raised railway rates, the cost of building, and prices of everything that the fanner bought. They and their like, therefore, were on stilts, while we farmers hobbled along as best we could on our own Icgx. We were faced, therefore, with two alternatives, the horns, as it were, of a.dire dilemma. Either we must demand that the manufacturers and the unions come down to earth or we also must be set up on stilts thai pre-war price parity or income parity might be restored. But if we chose the for- mcr policy we .should butt our heads ncainst a stone wall of vested Interests; and if we turned to the latter we micht be invoiced in a tangle of control*, lose n measure of liberty, nnd spoil the foreign markets where our surpluses miivt b? sold. Even so, the eloquent Senator recommended the second horn n.i the less of two evils. Much water hns cone under the bridge since there days, witness the vetoing by President CoolidKC of the McN'ary-Hauncn Bill, the fate of the Federal Farm Board, the wavering of the AAA, the firief of the Canadian wliorit pool, and the futile efforts by foreign countries to control prices of coftce, rubber, camphor and whatnot. And yet the aforesaid alternative still confronts us and once more America must choose. If we arc looking for guidance, pos* slbly we moy find it In a principle propounded by the great German philosopher, Immanucl Kant, many year* ago, and called by the forbidding name of categorical Imperative. But It Is o wise saying and runs like this: "Act so that the maxima of thy understanding may be susceptible of universal application," In other words, imagine a given course of action applied to the whole nation or to tho world at lar^c. and consider what the results would be. What then It restriction ot output and price control were applied to farming, mining, manufacture, merchandising, labor, professional service, and all other industries and occupations? And what, on the other hand. If freedom and competition should prevail, and every citizen be allowed to carry on in his own way without interference or control by labor unions, trade associations, or governmental authority, save within the limits prescribed by law? Under tho former regime we should probably have higher prices and wages, shorter hours, scarcity of goods and services, crippling of foreign trade, economic nationalism, higher costs of living, a vast bureaucracy, and a system ol corporate and public controls comparable to thatf which now plagues the totalitarian states. Under the latter system, which savors of Jaf«cz-j..tnr, we might expect increasing domestic production. a firou'lnff volume of exports and imports, low prices, lower money wages, salaries, rents nnd profits, but higher real incomes of goods and services which, aftc:* all. is real as compared with nominal or paper prosperity. Then, too. we should probably have 2 better equilibrium between supply nnd demand and fewer of those rigidities which block progress and, in time of depression, delay recovery. In view of these alternatives, it may look as though we were between the devil and the deep sea, but Is there not more freedom nnd less danger on the deep? But may there not be * middle way free from the defects of both extremes? (Adtircsit questions to the author care of this newspaper) Pittavino, Joseph Tomasi, B. F.
