SHANGHAI, Feb. 2.--Telephonic communication between Hong Kong and Canton, and Canton and Han- kow was disrupted Tuesday alter reports of a severe Japanese airplane bombardment in the Canton area yesterday. A refugee train from Hankow, due yesterday, had not arrived at" Hong Kong. Canton advices Monday said that 13 Japanese planes bombed Fotshan, west ot Canton, with bombs reported to weigh as much as 600 pounds. It was asserted that many were killed Earlier, forts near Canton were bombarded and Chinese reports were that more than 20 civilians were killed. Chinese sources yesterday said that the government had recalled a detachment of men, formerly of the Shanghai garrison, who remained in Shanghai after the Japanese occupation to carry out instructions to exterminate "traitors." SNYDER ADDRESSES EDUCATORS Tax Shortage Case Postponed Until Feb. 14 Like the Big Fellow, "Liille" Business Man Has 10-Point Program Continued from Page One. country. I got what all big businessmen got--a 10-point plan. Of course I'm speaking mostly from my knowledge of the South. But everybody knows that business is good in the South, it's good In the North So here toes with my plan--you can call It the Clark long-range recovery program: 1--There must be a back-to-the- farm movement. This is the most important point of all. Too many folks have gone to big and little towns from the Jarms. .There-isn't enough work for them all. So they're on relief. Get them back to the farm and it will stop all this talk about over-production. .-2--Repeal about a. Billion laws. Too many local ordinances restrict small businessmen. Why, if a farmer manages to cure a few more hams than he needs for his family and tries to sell them without a license that costs ten times as much as the hams, ho gels tossed in jail,": . - . . - " 3--Reduce prices ot manufactured products. The consumer and the retailer are getting hooked and the producer gets most of the gravy. 4--Adjust labor's differences. If the different factions can't settle their" quarrel, then the Federal government should step in and say: "Here, young fellows. There's been too much dillydallying. We'll settle this thing and nobody'll get hurt." The Government can eliminate unions and replace them by laws that will give the workers the wages and hours they need. 5--Spend money. Any more ideas like the CCC would do a world of good. It's one of the finest things ever done and, boy, has the drug- ·slore cowboy population dropped since the CCC came in! 6--Uniform laws. Make all laws begin and end the same in all states. Lack of uniform state and local laws is raising old ned with interstate commerce. In my business, I've had to get licenses in 620 different towns and the fees have cost me almost 55,000 in 10 years. 7--No office-holder in the United States except the President ought to succeed himself. Terms of office should be only six years. Too long in -office, makes some officials contemptuous of the law. 8--Keep pace with the times. If new forms of transportation can be utilized, don't continue the old ones. 9--Stop grafting. I don't think you can, myself. It's hard to legislate against human nature. But all businessmen, big and little, ought to go to church Sundays, read the Bible and apply its teachings to '.heir business dealings. 10--Quit looking to others for support. Quit grumbling and worK like hell. J. BUELL Congressman J. Bucll Snydcr of j Pcrryopolis, for years secretary of the Fayettc County School Directors' Association and founder of the Pennsylvania Forensic Music League, addressed the Pennsylvania 'State School Directors' Association at its annual convention in Harrisburg this morning, using as his theme "Our Future High School and College Curricula." Mr. Snyder traveled back to Washington by plane to be present when Congress opened its session at noon. In his address, Congressman Sny- dcr said: "A Nation is prosperous only as its soil tillers are prosperous. One of two things a Nation must always do: Pay small suma to educate its people and adjust the social and economic order or pay large sums for rehabilitation, refoim and crime in all its ramifications. My recent study leads me to believe that the schools of Pennsylvania a f ' t h o present time rank first n the United States in scope and efficiency in the teaching'of agricul- Ohiopyle OHIOPYLE, Feb. 2.--M,.-. and Mrs, O.

'However, I am convinced that one big channel through which we can do most to help solve our unemployment problem and 'Our crime problem is to educate and direct a large per cent ot the youth of the Nation to make their living on -small farms and in small town factories. "We cannot perpetuate a democracy over a long space of years unless we do something like this. Until we increase our purchasing power and our consumption we cannot increase our productoin because at this time if we operated all our available mills and factories in the Nation 40 hours a week we would turn out in eight months more than we could consume in all the Nation and sell to other parts of the world in 12 months . . . "My philosophy is. that it is cheaper to educate, train and direct our youth into channels that will make men and women _out of. them who will need no reformation when they grow older--than to spend large .sums in trying to reform them after they are beyond school age."

Kcirstcd, Uniontown woman l;ix collector serving a term in the Allegheny county workhouse after her conviction on tax cmbezzle- mcnti charges, was given until Monday morning, February 14, at 10 o'clock to collect data on her records for presentation to ' the Foyette county courts. Sheriff Thomas n. Aubrey, former county treasurer, will be subpoenaed as a witness for that session, it was announced when court was adjourned Tuesday afternoon. Aubrey was to have been summoned today but the postponement became necessary when Mrs. Keirsted told the court she could not be expected to go through her own records "in a day or even two" and compile the data for presentation in court. Meantime, Judge H. S. Dumbauld, presiding at the hearing on the motion of The American Surety Company to open judgment on the woman's 1933 and 1934 lax duplicates, authorized continued release of Mrs. Keirsted from county jail, in custody of he counsel. Attorney Wade K. Newell. I The additional "freedom" is necessary for further opportunity to compile the data, essential to the hearing, from records that were missing in her own trial for tax embezzlement j ;nd for which she served a year in j county jail on a contempt charge in refusing to turn them over on order of ex-Judge Thomas H. Hudson. Objections were voiced yesterday by Attorneys Dean D. Sturgis, E. C. Higbce and W. Brown Higbcc, special counsel for the county in the i case, when it was learned Mrs. Keirsted conferred Monday night In her I home with auditors of the American j Surety Company. The woman declared Uiey discussed only the evidence that had been submitlcd in Monday's session and that all the "missing records" were not in her home and, so, were not available for perusjil by the surety company's representatives. "Have you submitted to the auditors these records for examination?" asked Judge Dumbauld. The -woman replied she had not shown them all the records. "It's hardly right to have these auditors in private interviews with this defendant," persisted Attorney Slurgis, who made pointed remarks about "covering anything up" and "bringing everything out in the open." Attorney Linn V. Phillips, counsel for the Surety Company, assured the court the auditors were only trying to help Mr. Keirsted prepare her records but that, to plcacc the court, they would not meet or try to aid her. The woman then explained that what it took six auditors to prepare could hardly be done by her in a single evening and asked the court's indulgence for additional time. "She doesn't want to otler these records piecemeal," interposed Attorney Phillips. "She doc:*n't have to give it piecemeal," retorted Attorney E. C. Hig- bce, "fht can give them nil to us richt now." Tl-.c court then risked the womtm whnther Mie would make a complete examination of all her records for presentation in court or "that you will withhold certain documents?" "U the court orders I'll turn them all over," hhc replied. "I rm'im that all will be handed over--that none will be cottm rid of in the meantime," Judge Dumbauld picsscd, "and that records will be turned ncr for examination by i the court and all concerned." I Mr.s. Keir.stcct thon reported, from ! tin.- witni.v sUind, that she had been advised by her counsel (Attorney No\v(-H "not to turn the records over until they wuic complete." Just before adjournment lust evening, the court announced po:tpone- mcnt until Monday, February 14. In the meantime he said, "Mrs. Keirtcd is to examine, classify and prepare her records" and she would be released again in custody of Attorney Newell "lo enable her to work on them." "This order is made with the distinct understanding," the judge continued, "that when you have completed your examination--with such help as you may find necessary-these records shall be kept intact, in any order you may desire for your use as a witness, and that they must be available for counsel for both bides. Do you agree?" The woman indicated willingness lo comply with the court's directions. It was also understood that a subpoena would be issued for Aubrey, at the instigation ot the county's special counsel in the case, for the session February 14, It was indicated yesterday that subpoenas might also be Issued for William McNulty, former clerk in the commissioners office, or the county commisMoners relative to the amount of tuxes paid on the 1934 duplicate through Mr. McNulty and credited on commissioners' records. Testimony at the hearing yesterday to determine alleged shortages on the 1933 and 1934 tax duplicates issued by the county to Mrs. Keirsted revealed an additional $12,981.41-- apart from cancelled checks in the amount of $18,805.34 submitted at Monday's session--which apparently had not been credited to the woman tax collector in records ot ex-Treasurer Thomas R. Aubrey. No entry could be found in county records that credited Mrs. Keirsted with the total of $31,787.75 for which, during the two-day sessions, cancelled checks had been submitted showing the defendant had endorsed the vouchers to the treasurer who, in turn, endorsed thorn to permit clearing through the bank.
