New York City: NORRIS CASES STRESSES TARDINESS OF JUSTICE The Supreme Court did a number of things when it had that field day on decisions recently. One Job which almost escaped attention In the rush of bigger things was Its disposal of the case of Mr. George W. Norris, grocer, of Broken Bow, Neb. The court's ruling In this case proved that it Is possible, after all, to punish a man for perjury in this country if you don't care how long it takes you or how much mone, it costs. The fate of Norris as an Individ ual is not particularly impartani He was Just a well - meaning man who was played for a sucker bj big boys and was left high and dry on a sandbar when the waters re ceded. First and foremost, it was his his name that got him into trouble. If you remember the case, you will recall that in the early summ 1930 Nebraska's famous Senator George W. Norris was running for renominatlon in the Republican prl mary. The party big - wigs, who hax been keeping a rod in pickle for Senator Norris for many years, hit on one of those ultra - slick ways of beating him too slick, as it turned out. They hunted around until they dug up this innocent grocer, George W. Norris, and they presuaded him to file for the Senate. Thus, when the voter got to the polls, he would find two George W. Norrises on the ballot, and would have no earthly way of telling which was which. In that way Senator Norris' vote would be split and the "regular" candidate might slip in. The people of Nebraska gagged at this bit of slickness, the state supreme court ruled Grocer Norris off the ballot, and Senator Norris went on to renomination and reelection. Meanwhile the Senate campaign committee began investigating. It held hearings in Nebraska, and summoned Grocer Norris as a witness. Norris first told the committee that he received no money from anybody for offering himself as the sacrificial lamb; later, he changed his story and admitted that he had been paid $550. For this he was indicted for perjury by a federal grand Jury in June, 1931. After long delay the case came to trial, and in the late fall of 1935 Grocer Norris was convicted of perjury, fined $100, and sentenced to three months in Jail. Nearly a year later an appellate court re - versed the conviction and ordered a new trial. The government took the case to the U. S. Supreme Court and now, nearly seven years after the offense was ' committed, the Supreme Court has sustained the conviction and ordered Grocer Norris to take his medicine. This little case tells you much about the tricks of American poli tics; it tells you even more about the almost crippling delay American criminal court procedure. Perjury strikes at the very foundation stone of Justice. If men cai lie under oath and get away with it, the courts are crippled. Yet in an open and shut case, it took six and one - half years to convict a man of lying and make the conviction stick! WAR CAUSE So many grave events have men aced peace in recent years that the world, by now, must have becomee pretty callous to war scares. When such momentous event as H remilitarization of the Rhini for instance, falls to bring a world conflict, the event that finally does will have to be one of calamitous proportions, it would seem. In this connection an odd news story that appeared the other day seems analogous. An Ohio parachute Jumper who had made 2226 leaps, and fallen a total of 2,000,000 feet, was seriously injured in a tumble from a truck trailer. Thus, after facing one great crisis after another, the world finally may be pirated Into Hood by an apparently innocuous Incident The glnatlon ol one man, remember, touched off the World War. When tf war finally does come, the s, superficially at least, may not be a huge crisis. It may be something as plcayunlsh, for example, as tiie ruffling of a dictator's QMclntyre New York, April 8 Those little quirks that make up the human the favored class called celebrities are fascinating to watch irom the side lines. Attitude striking or natural, none is without a display of some minor eccentricity. When Will and Inez Hayes Irwin attend teas they are Invariably round together in the seats nearest the entrance. Alexan - d e r Woollcott, bobbing along the street, will at intervals wheel and watch some pedestrian out of sight. William Lyon Phelps always carries an umbrella. Henry L. Mencken is seldom without a brief O. O. Hclntyre case. Guthrie McCllntic almost invariably dines out in one of tlie small tea rooms. Paul Whlteman in talking to strangers, fidgets with a key chain. Mayor LaGuardia will always be found sit - timt on one foot. George Jean Nathan, immaculate dresser, has a sprout of unruly lock sticking up in the back. Qene Tun ney will . rarely leave his seat at theatrical intermissions. Gelett Burgess, sedate dresser, buys., the noisiest shirt he can find once a year. And so it goes. As Andy says: "Most always, It's sumpin.' " I had dinner the other evening with a Provence family, who had brought with them, three French maids bearing such pretty names as Jeanne, Marie and Gabrielle. With their permission the hostess showed us the three small rooms the girls occupied. They were models of French neatness and charm. Once a year they go to a French ball and about once a month neighborhood movie. Tne rest of their leisure, they sew, knit and paint. It was a pleasant toss back to the days wnen tnere was no - ser vant problem." O, yes, each had a tnrllt account ana naa sa - veu ira thirds of pay since being in America. In our town, the maid of all work, or inelegantly "the hired girl," got from $1.50 a week to S4 cop paid Dy the leading biggity. Often she re mained a lifetime with one family and when there was no company, ate with them. I recall one who had been employed in a private residence since taken from a children's home and passed away in their employ. Her estate, something around $12,000, was left to her employer's children. She was one of lie family ana was ouriea in uue family lot. Economic changes, - too, have blot ted out that small town character, the odd - Job man. Ours was Joe Sheline, who lived across the creek hC - ite pit of several un productive acres, had a sick cow, a our wen ana a yara ium ui mgu invpson weeds. About the most in dustrious person I have ever known, he cleaned up yards, whitewashed the hen houses, chucked in coal, kindling ana sucn. his pay was $1 a day and on this he somehow managed to rear a large family and give them a high school education. His biggest honor he probably never knew about. The town turnea oui to ms juneim eu masse. Gene Buck, probably the most confirmed of tne Broadwayites, nas never failed to catch a train or motor to Great Neck where he has lived since the day of his marriage. John Golden is another Great Necker who refuses to stay in the city over night, no matter how late detained. Fred Stone was an other who could not abide the town when his professional duties were finished. Then there was that Broadwayite, the late Tommy Gray who swore he could never get a gooa night's sleep save in a room on the Times Square side of some hotel such as the old Claridge or Astor. Robert Hilliard could never sleep on tour but at his Broadway hotel slept soundly and it was next door to a bowling aiiey. An illustration of how the art of ambulandi Ls slowly vanlsnmg New York is found in the thinning parade of sundown walkers who once circled the gravel path of the Central Park reservoir. Among gulars were Bert Lytell and Charles Dillingham. From 5 to 7 it was a human merry - go - round in fair weather and foul. Today one sees no more than a dozen the entire distance. Thingumbobs: Buster West ls a champion billiard shot . . . Molly Picon, stage darling of the Ghetto, Is one of America's wealthiest actresses . . . Rockwell Kent is an accomplished flute player . . . James Cagney was once a bell hop at the Lambs . . . Vincent Lopez always has a go at the pla.no before breakfast. My awe for the monocle increases with the years.

MEN ON A HORSE' The National Whirligig News Behind the News. WASHINGTON By Ray Tucker r,,J President Roosevelt so far refuses absolutely to discuss the merits, legality or prospects of the sit - down strike. Recent outbreaks in the Senate clearly reflect Congressional leaders' ignorance of his real attitude. Majority Leader Robinson made no response when several New Dealers first denounced this new Industrial .strategy on the Senate floor. At F. D. R.'s suggestion he blamed the resort to this technique on the Supreme Court. Subsequently he privately conferred with the President and announced that the federal government had no Jurisdiction. He broadcast that it was entirely a local legal problem. Then, without any warning, White 6:15 o'clock.

Byrnes tacked an to , the Gufley Coal Act prohibiting sit - down strikes in this industry. Mr. Robinson urged against hasty consideration; Mr. Roosevelt wouldn't talk about it at all publicly. The spectacle of White House Spokesman Byrnes fighting White House Spokesman Robinson on such a major issue convinced their colleagues that theNo. 1 sit - downer is President Roosevelt. strikes was not entirely academic accidental. The C. I. O.'s . next thrust will be against the textile dustry of the South, and they may utilize in the Carolinas the same strategy employed against' automobile plants in Detroit. The South Carolina Senator's ariti - sit - down amendment was framed only one day before Secre tary Perkins opened the interna tional textile conference at Wash ington with a typical New Deal speech. She told foreign visitors that she was an apostle of "abund ance of living," and naturally she touched upon "Higher levels of living " among ' textile" workers in the South. Coincident with her call to war came reports . that the C. L O planned to finance industrial organ ization of colored houseworkers and share - croppers below the Mason and Dixon line.

Major Lynn G. Adams, superintendent of state police, reported last night that none of the ringleaders in. the disorder had Deen - iound. Alexander Stoddard, spokesc for the company, said little damage had been done to equipment. Farm ers would be able to bring their milk to. the plant "today, he sald but it would - be. two days before the entire plant would - be - reopened. Representatives of the - .strikers said they, did not know what their next move would be. Earle, in a statement last night, criticized the sheriff of Dauphin county for falling to call state po lice to avert Diooasnea in tne riot. He said "apparently the sheriff was not an unbiased law enforcement officer." Witnesses estimated that 800 to 1,000 strikers were driven yesterday from the. vine - covered factory. Non - striking women employes joined men m me iign reds of residents of the town crowded about the plant. Strikers, bruised and bleeding, many holding up their hands in token of surrender, were driven away. from the factory, down a narrow path opened through the crowd, and through the streets of the town. Twenty - five of the combatants were treated at a hospital. As many more were attended by physicians or removed to men: homes. William F. R. Murrie, president o the company, said the disorder oc curred after the sit - down strikers jeered at farmers outside, daring them to "come in ana get John Loy, business manager for the Chocolate Workers' Union, an affiliate of the Committee for In dustrial Organization that called the strike last Friday, blamed the company for the disturbance. Loy was among those injured. He said he and Russel president of the union, were in rie's office a half hour before the outbreak. "We asked him to call off the crowd or we would put the entire blame on him for any violence," Loy said. The strike was called in a com plaint that the company had disre garded seniority rights in violation of an agreement made with the union March 17. "ANVIL CHORUS" (Concluded from Page One) "I gave the legislature a oomnlete program three months ago, carefully worked out in advance. If we had mote cooperation from the distress ed centers, especially from public officials and news sources, Instead of such a continuous ring of th vll chorus, this problem should have been solved weeks ago, tne state ment said. "Let me give solemn warning to the lawe city officials in the troswx; 'centers that Uicy mui piQUA.ISMjg BXLLO, SUCRUSl quote parts of an article that appeared to the Detroit Free press, March 17, 1937. in which the writer proposes the organisation of a society for the Prevention of Cruelty to credulous Editors poor blighters. "These wily, unscrupulous, sinister and altogether wicked and evil press agents have picked on them long enough. Awake, ye editors! Are we men or mice? ' . "Time was when marriage was proclaimed by the church, but nowadays in the publishing of the banns the press agent has taken the place of the cleric. Furthermore, there ire marriages that never happen; they are marriages for the purpose of convenience of the press agent. 'What's a poor editor going to do? Lottie Dooflicker, the queen of the screen, generally referred to as glamorous, announces her engagement to Harold Kairoil, shadowland Adon - , ls and God's greatest gift to women. That's news!' The headlines are written and the presses proclaim them but weeks pass and no wedding bells. It is marriage without benefit of clergy but tremendous benefit to the press agent who is paid to put the bee on the gullible gentlemen of the press, "The latest one ls all about Sonja Henie and Tyrone Power, Jr., Sonja opens an engagement in Detroit and Tyrone is supposed to have flown all the way from Hollywood Just to have her pin a rose on him. Young sweethearts, hey? The press agents whisper into the shelllike ears of Detroit city editors tha t they . will announce their engagement; Well mortgage the old farm, to bet on this: the only engagement will be a theatrical one for Sonja out at the skating rink. - . "They are two nice kids but ready to feed their own hungry peo ple for a period of tune after April 15. because there will be no more state money available until some new tax source can produce it and put it in the . treasury. The State Treasury, so far as the general revenue fund is concerned, is almost empty," it said. Of the Soup Kitchen plan, which the Governor has said would be abandoned if the legislature made relief finances ready by a week from today, Davey said, "if my memory serves me right, the Mayor of Cleveland was' threatening Soup Kitchens a few weeks ago, if .the state, eglsla - ture did not produce a " lot more money forthwith". Who, among the present Anvil Chorus, condemned the Mayor for such an absurd and inhuman proposal? The idea that was. high virtue, when.lt came from his lips, ls now a monstrous thing because the governor suggests it." Meanwhile; several members ot the legislature expressed indignation when they visited the sit - downers to Davey's office arid could not get the names of the - demonstrators. Ben Gray , of Cleveland, president of the Ohio workers alliance, acted as spokesman for the group as other memebrs, talked, played cards, ate and rested as their vigil began late yesterday. Most of them are from Northwestern Ohio. AIRPLANE ACCIDENT (Concluded from Page One) the plane, said, the removal could not be completed before nightfall and may require two days. The sight of twisted metal and death which greeted the searchers and the ordeals they underwent on the way were described - by Jack Lef - ler, a member of the party. "Sparkling remnants of that luxurious airliner drew us up the mountainside to the summit of the white mountains," he said. ' ."There we stumbled upon fragments of steel scattered over a 50 - yard area. The - battered nose and burned cabin of the plane were buried six feet deep in the snow a grave eaten into the frozen masses. "In the cabin, unburhed portions of the pilot's and co - pilot's bodies remained strapped in their seats. The six others, charred beyond recognition, were buried beneath the hull. A heap of almost unharmed baggage sprawled across the drifts of snow. It was the only thing there that was not debris. "One of the M - foot wings lay crumbled and torn from the hull. A few yards up the hill the other lay twisted like a broken tin horn. "A section of the tail, slashed into a nearby tree, hung precariously overhead. From the limbs other shattered pieces of the plane were suspended." Officers and Directors of Gas Company Elected Columbus, O, April 8, UP) - With the exception of F. B.
