SILVER ISSUE HE specific Issue is over mandatory or permissive silver . re- monetization. The president is flatly opposed to the former. If by any chance, highly remote, such a bill should be Jammed through congress, he would veto it. He has told this bluntly to the silverites. They, however, grimly insist on a compulsory bill. To his offer to accept permissive remonetization, with the pledged assurance gradually to increase silver coverage of currency from the present 12 per cent to approximately 30 per cent, they turn a deaf ear. Only compulsory remonetization will satisfy them meet their urgent political needs. At a white house conference last week they put this bluntly up to the president. Permissive legislation is all right for you, Mr. President, said Borah. But how about us? We can't go back to our people and say we gave the power to decide to a president who doesn't believe as we do on this question. Well, you can never tell, smiled the president persuasively.

Committee Is In Favor of Poliec Radio (Continued from page 1) aided me a great deal in solving crimes, Chief McCormick said. It works both ways. Whenever I have asked the papers from refraining from publishing certain details to aid me they have cooperated. Donald Burt, representing a company which installs short wave systems, informed the committee that the cost of a short wave system for the police would cost about $7,000 the first year, and about $4,900 yearly thereafter. He suggested cooperation with the county which would divide the cost. Aid. Sehmiege contended that the auto radios could be purchased for less than $35 each, and that the rental for the WIBA service was reasonable. He declared that he would be opposed to spending about $3,500 for the remainder of this year for the citys share of the cost for a short wave system. He said he was in favor of trying out the cheaper plan as an experiment. We are not satisfied that a short wave set would be advisable for use of the police, Aid. H. C. Wolf said. Even if the county cooperated with the city there are no funds for this purpose in the 1934 budget. I am in favor of spending the small amount as an experiment. If the county completes a similar arrangement with WIBA, Chief McCormick announced that it would permit cooperation between the police and sheriffs departments in the apprehension of criminals as all crime broadcasts would immediately be received by squad car officers.

Fliers Escape Death, Crack Up in Ireland (Continued from page I) like a demon to repair the line. He did, but a large quantity of gasoline was lost in the operation. After that the engine picked up for awhile, but then it continued to cough again. Said Sabelli today: The last hour of the flight showed the Atlantic at its worst. With the engine threatening to fail every moment, I think we missed death by inches many times in the last few hundred miles. We were flying so low that, to our taut nerves, it seemed as if the spray was swishing around the machine. We couldnt think of any food on the flight, for food was a secondary consideration. Despite their gruelling experience. Pond and Sabelli recovered overnight. Pond described the flight as a great experience but a gamble w-ith death all the way. We were flying blind for about 26 hours, he said. The engine coughed and smoked awhile, adding to our trouble, we had no idea of our whereabouts. It was a welcome relief to see the green fields of Ireland. I cant praise the skill of Pond too highly. He never became flustered in the face of the worst weather conditions. Plans for a round - trip flight to Rome and then a return trans-Atlantic hop from Ireland to New York were announced today by the fliers. Early this afternoon such progress had been made on the repairing of their plane that they believed there was a good possibility of getting away for Rome within 48 hours.

The invitation was accepted. Sixty-nine wine tasters, coffee tasters, tea tasters and cocoa experts took part. In repeated tests by these taste authorities. Old Gold was chosen as the smoothest brand. If that evidence isn't enough to convince your friend . . . ask him to try Old Golds for a few days and let his own taste decide. Sincerely , P. LORILLARD COMPANY , INC. ESTABLISHED 1760 P. S.OId Golds smoothness isnt an accident, Mr. Raft : No better tobacco grows than is used in Old Gold. And its pure.

The only authority specifically conferred by Chapter 194 of the statutes over carriers of passengers for hire is over those coming within the definition of common carriers of passengers which include, so far as urban operations are concerned, only those operating as public carriers over regular routes, the commission said. Whatever may be the arguments of policy urged for the supervision of buses, streetcars and taxicabs by the same governmental body, and however unusual may be the operations and practices of cabs here involved and the effect upon the local transportation situation, we are of the clear opinion that the legislature did not, by the 1933 transportation act, confer upon the commission jurisdiction over taxicab operations. It would hardly be possible for regulation of the same subject matter by cities and villages and by this commission to exist at the same time without overlapping and conflict. It seems obvious that the .legislature did not intend to confer conflicting jurisdic-tion upon two branches of the gov- eminent. Mrs. Aagot Dale Dies at Age 80 McFARLAND, Wis.
