The epeaker pointed out that the incident occurred in daylight, with neighbors near by. In defending the two enlisted Tani for "being loyal," Darrow mentioned Jones' name and then Mopped.

"Lordthat's it," Darrow repeated, turning again to the Jury. "Excuse me. gentlemen: 20 years ago I would have grabbed it in a minute." Then Defends Jones and Lord. Darrow then turned the force of hia argument toward s defense of Jones and Lord. "Have they done anything to be blamed for except being loyal?" he demanded.

Kelley haying the Met word of argument. Kelley began his argument with: stand before you representing the law. Yon have been presented with a defense of sympathy, not of ineanity." Then in ringing tones the prosecutor scored Darrow for what he said WI' belittling the bar of Justice before which he had' practiced for 50 years. -If you are going to decide this came on passion." Kelley said, "then tell me and I'll be anent."

"They sacrificed that girl," shouted Kelley, pointing to Mrs. Massie, "for his ego, and made a Roman holiday for the crowd that disgraced this court with applause last week." Here Kelley was referring to the incident when Mrs. Massie, on the stand, angrily destroyed a paper allegedly written by her and supposedly admitting differences with her hueband prior to the attack. Kelley told the Jurors the court would inetruct them that if the defendants conspired together to abduct Kahahawal, and illegally imprison him and threaten him with a pistol, they were guilty. "And you don't have to believe the territory." said Kelley. "They admitted all this." Kelley argued that the detente produced only two ItOnetee who testified to Mastle8 actions showing he was under a strain. Attacks Defense in Insanity. "Why didn't he get his brother officers on the submarine to testify to his mental condition?" demanded Kelley. "Who knew better than they?" The presweutor asserted Massie was "high" the night of the party after which Mrs. Massie wm sesaulted. "The beat you can say for him," geld the prosecutor, "i8 that he lied like a gentlemen." Kelley charged that Massie had made several evasions in hie testimony. "Fifty years ago," mid the prosecutor. "the intanity defense NM not known to American jurisprudence.

WASHINGTON, April 27. OM Solemn warnings againit tempering against .the curreney were voiced toetay before the house ways and means rommittets by the heads of the nation's financial departments. Secretery Mills and Eugene Meyer, ehairman of the ferierel reserve board, told the committee that tssuance of $2,0011,000,000 of new currency under the Pittman bill for full payment of the soldiers' bonus would endanger the ennficlence of the whole world in the United Stales. "There is nothing so ruinous to the trade of a country, internally and externally, then violent inflation of the currency," Meyer said. "There is no country that ham tried Inflation that does not abhor It as the devil does holy water," In language no less forceful than that Charles G. MUM employed before the seine committee a week ago, the new treasury chief drove home his opposition to the S2.400.000,000 outlast. whether paid in borrowed money or through inflation of the curreney. Payment Now Not Honest. "The measure now before you is designed to pay an obligation not due, In money that is not honest," Mills geld. "The edjusted service certificates do not mature until 1945. To pay them et their fare value today, less the amount that has been borrowed on them. would, In effect, almost double the payment provided for by the eeljusted service compensation art and would involve an immediate Cost to the government of about $2.400.000.000. "In other words the govprriment le to pay almost twice the amount It undertook to pay." Blow to Confidence. "To select this moment," he went on, "to destroy our hopes of a balanced budget and to deal a smashing blow to national eonlidence, is to me simply incomprehensible, The proponents of this measure fully recognize that the cost can not be borne by legitimate means. s They would discharge what they state to be a solemn obligation of the government a by setting the printing presses to work printing dishonest dollars. "For a great, powerful nation deliberately to adopt this Insidious and essentially dishonest, device would to my Mind be worse than an act of financial bankruptcy. It would constitute moral bankruptcy. "Destroy confidence and you dry up credit, and paralyze enterprise. No measure was ever drafted better calculated to destroy confidence than th one now before you. Enact it into law and you will stifle all hope of any early economic recovery and write the most lamentable chapter in American history." Then, reminding the committee of his own veteran status and service in organizing the American legion, Mills said: Thinks Veterans Not Guilty. "Nothing will persuade me that the men who 15 years ago stood ready to give thetr lives to their country in the crisis of war, are today, in a crisis which in so far as human misery and suffering in this country are concerned, far exceeds anything experienced during the war years, really seeking this huge grant of $2,400,000,- ON. the effect of which will be to impair public and private credit. to defitroy, confidence and to prolong the depression. "The passage of this bill would, in my Judgment, deal such a severe blow to public confidence as to make the consequences almost Incalculable."

TALKS TO GOVERNORS City, County, State lbre ittspoiri sibility.--Richmond Gives Him Tremnitottm RICHMOND, Va., April 27. UP-- President Hoover launched a triple-headed plea today toward the nation and its states for a better distribution of tasea, reduced expenditures balanced budgeto as the only "sure highway toward national recovery," Standing before a throng filling the auditorium of the John Maraha II hotel here including republican and democratic governors from more than a seort of statesassembled at the annual governors' conferencethe president also renewed a stern at. tack upon selfish demands by sectional and group interests, Gets Tumultuous Reception. lie was given a tumultuous reception as he entered Richmond. A 21- gun salute sounded am he stepped from the train, A crowded station echoed with cheers and handclapping. The presidential party was met at the station by Governors Pollard of Virginia. Case of Rhode Island and Rolph of California, the latter surrounded by special military escort. Rolph was the center of a radical demonstration earlier in the day. Must Reduce Expenditures. As "the sure highway to national recovery," President Hoover cited to the governors the "absolute necessity" of reduced expenditures, better distributed taxation and balanced budgets on the part of government. Town councils. county commissions. state legislatures and the congress agree on these fundamentals, he said, but to accomplish them "we must have the intelligent, support of the people themselves, that selfish vested interest and vested habit do not, by their organised sectional and group oppositions or individual action, defeat these high purposes." tries State Confabs. Expressing a wish for greater cooperation toward settling governmental problems, he suggested that the governors sponsor in their states such conferences as they have been holding here. Having the local executives examine their difficulties together. he said, "would help toward a realization that local expenditures and taxes are a part of a great national problem in stability as well as one of local concern." Stressing the need for adjustments, the president told of federal. state and local government expenditures rising from $2,900,000,000 in 1913 to $13,200,000,000 in 1930 and the total outstanding debt going from S4,800,- 000,000 to $30,600.000.000 in the same time. Before the war the total governmental cost represented but 8 per cent of the national income and Mr. Hoover estimated the present proportion at above 20 per cent. '.we can not re,store economic stability in the nation by continuing to siphon so large a part of private effort into the coffers of the government," he said. "Its abstraction from the people stifles the produetivity, the consumption and the recovery of employment. Can't Hide Heads. "Nor can we hide our beads in the sand by borrowing to cover current government expenses, for thus we dram the. capital of the country into public securities and draft it away from industry and commerce." He urged study of the tex problem with a view toward reorganization to distribute the burden more evenly, and cutting down duplication in taxation by the federal, state and local governments. Especially he spoke with disfavor of the general property tax, relied on heavily by states and local governments. "Decreasing prices and decreasing Income result in an increasing burden upon property owners, both in rural and urban communities, which is now becoming almost unbearable," he declared. ',The tax burden upon real estate is wholly out of proportion to that upon other forms of property and income. "There is no farm relief more needed today than tax relief for I believe it can be demonstrated that the I tax burden upon the farmer today ex- ceeels the burden upon other groups." Praises Men'a Courage. In closing, the president paid tribute "to the courage shown by our public officials, both executive and legislative. in these problems." Theirs is no path of roses, he said. but "is one to invite the anger of established interests." To the public be addressed this message: "Be patient, be helpful, recognize the complexity and the difficulty of the problem before these servants of your combined public interest. Support them in their Wk. for upon its successful conclusion depends a most momentous contribution to our united security. Our hope of an early return to stability, and the common welfare of every man, woman and child in our nation." WOODEN COIN PAYS WAY Tenino Men Find It's Good Anywhere In Oregon.

WASHINGTON, April 27. (if--A tempestuous house that stubbornly refused to be bridled by its leaders threw the huge omnibus government economy bill into a maelstrom of uncertainty today by opening the measure to unlimited revision from the floor. Taking advantage of unexpected support and a spectacular and confusing parliamentary tangle, a rebellious coalition flatly rejected the ruling of party chieftains that only four amend' ments to each of the measure's 10 titles could be offered. Can Erase or Rewrite. Thus, the insurgent forces. bitterly opposing some of the bill' s provisions, made it possible to rewrite them without restraint so long as they can retain a majority of the membership. The unusual situation placed the measure in a precarious position. Although some sort of economy bill Undoubtedly will be approved, the legislation so painstakingly drafted by the special economy committee with the aid of the administration undoubtedly will be extensively revised.

WASHINGTON, April 27, (13)--To deal effectively with the present emergency in agriculture, Chairman Stone of the farm board today recommended before the Senate agriculture committee a three-point program, Continuation of the recently initiated federal reserve board's own market operations to expand credit and increase consumer buying power, was his first recommendation, coupled with provision by congress for sufficient funds to finance sale of surplus wheat and cotton in foreign markets, and intensified development of cooperative marketing. The new credit expansion policy of the reserve board, the chairman said, "should tend to check credit contraction. restore business confidence, improve business activity, increase employment and so lead to a gradual increase in commodity prices. The results of this credit policy would be accelerated if accompanied by such action as would induce those member banks which have been reluctant to extend credit to liberalize their credit policies." Recommending appropriations to finance export sales of surpluses, Stone said "wheat and cotton prices hive led the way out of previous depressions. It is particularly important that our domestic carryover of wheat and cotton into the next crop RePSOTT be reduced so that farmers will receive the best possible prices for their 1932 crop." He added inquiries by foreign governments already received indicate 13,000.000 to 25,000.000 bushels of wheat and 500.000 to 1.000,000 bales of cotton from stabilization stocks could be sold within two months.
