WIRE UPHOLDS State Obtains New Data To Fight Kennamer Plea. TULSA. Anril 13. fPt The nrose- cution in the Phil Kennamer case leveled a new attack Monday at defense attempts to set aside the 25-year manslaughter sentence of the son of Fed eral Judge Franakhn E. Kennamer. W. F. Gilmer jr., assistant county attorney of Tulsa county, declared that the prosecution has documentary evidence which it will use in an attack on defense affidavits. Young Kennamer was sentenced In Pawnee in February, 1935, to serve 25 years for his admitted slaying of John F. Gorrell jr. on Thanksgiving night, 1934. The state criminal court of appeals has affirmed the conviction. The de fense has filed a motion for a rehearing of the appellate court decision hearlne motion at Oklahoma City Wednesday. He also made pub- telegram from Jack Snedden, young friend of Kennamer's now in school at Princeton, N. J., that he had learned the defense motion for a new trial was based on the pronuse that "my testimony was untrue . . . and that I was afraid to tell the truth." 'These allegations." said the Sned den telegram, "are of course mali ciously false. Last summer Phil Ken namer approacnea me ana requesiea that I change my testimony. Because of my refusal my family and I have been subjected to indignities from Kennamer.

Government architects have included regional veterans bureau offices in plans for enlargement of the veterans hospital at Muskogee. This fact came to light Monday after several months or agitation by Muskogee to have the offices moved from the federal building here. Dr. E. H. H. Foster, acting veterans bureau manager, said he "understood" tentative plans for a hospital addition did include bureau offices, but that "nothing final had been agreed upon." In Washington, veterans' officials declined to discuss the plans, but Senator Elmer Thomas said, "I don't think the consolidation will be made right away, but it certainly Is in the noint to possioie economies from elimination of duplication especially in medical service, some of which now is given at the offices in the federal building Opposition to the move Is bas'ed on disadvantages bound to arise from locating the offices so far from the center of the region, which covers all of Oklahoma and the Texas panhandle.

JOB AGE LIMIT IDEA PROPOSED BY ROOSEVELT Only 18 to 65 Group Would Get Work. NRA AIMS ARE TOLD Young Democrats Get A Rousing Talk. BALTIMORE, April 13. W Asserting that the era of "social pioneering is only at its beginning," President Roosevelt Monday night promised new consideration by his administration of a shorter work week, "adequate" minimum wages and a stabilization of annual employment. Directly, the chief executive pledged himself to aims that once were those of the NRA before it was declared unconstitutional by the supreme court. In a nationally broadcast speech before the Young Democratic club of Maryland, which was preceded by a torchlight parade and other political fanfare, he hinted, however, at a new line of attack upon the unemployment problem. "Jobless Cut Is Aim" In the form of a question, Mr. Roosevelt suggested that a deep dent could be made in the army of jobless by limiting employment to thos over 18 and under 65 years of age. To that he added this indirect "Industry can contribute in a great measure to the increase of employment if industry as a whole wiU undertake reasonable reductions of hours per work week, while, at the sam time, it keeps the average individual's pay envelope at least as larga as it is today." Addressing himself directly to the youth of the nation, the president, at this outset of his campaign for reelection, gave no direct word as to whether he would seek his NRA goals through legislative or only adminis- Production Outstrips Job In advancing his new suggestion for an age limit on workers, Mr. Roosevelt posed the problem by asserting that the total production of the nation was about back to the high point before the depression, but that only 80 percent as many human beings are engaged in turning out that "We cannot legislate against greater efficiency nor can we legislate against we could." he said. "Our working population increases every year, both because of population increase and because more and more women are working for wages. That is as it should be. But when we face your problems, these increase raise the question as to whether it is not possible, and right to limit the active working ages at both ends. Would F.xtenrt School Age "We in your government are seeking to extend the school age In every state of the union and to make it easier for boys and girls to stay In school. Work out for yourselves what would hapcen if all the boys and all the girls of 14 and IS and 16 and 17. who are now working in industry, found it possible to stay In school until they were at least 18 years old. "How many Jobs would that give to the young people of the nation who have graduated from highschool and from college? And how much better equipped these youngsters who are now at work if they could stay in school to the completion of their education? In the same way, ask yourselves how many jobs would be created if the great majority of people who are now over 65 to take a figure at random were in a position to retire in security for the balance of their days on earth. And how much greater happiness would such security give to their Shorter Work Week Urged Mr. Roosevelt, in talking directly to the gathering of national Democratic leaders assembled with the younir. Democratic clubs in the huge Fifth Regiment armory here one of a number of Jefferson birthday celebrations left the question for consideration. Turning to the subject or the shorter work week, he cited an Instance where a certain industry under the national recovery act reduced working hours to an average of 36.4 per week. He said that since NRA some members of this industry had increased working hours so that the average for the industry is now 39.9 hours per week. "Not a serious difference you say," he added, "and yet if you figure it out on the assumption that there were 166,500 men and women in this industry, 10 percent of 16,650 peopl have either lost their jobs or. by working longer hours, are preventing 16,650 other people from getting employment. Actually the records show that 1,400 people lost their jobs and 15,250 other people were kept from getting work." Mr. Roosevelt Mi littte doubt thai
