Claims, mild and otherwise, are already being made by campaign committees in Nebraska, with elec tion day only twenty-four days NEW YORK—Altho the voters in New York City have three major elections on their hands—na -1 tional. state and city—they are taking a lively interest in the poll- j tical future of two of their most distinguished politicians—Al Smith and Jimmie Walker, neither of whom is among the small army of nominees to be voted for this year. The word “politician" is used here as defined by the late speaker, Tom Reed. When asked to explain the difference between a statesman and a politician, Reed replied: “A politician is a statesman out of a job." Under this designation, both Smith and Walker are now merhly politicians, but the present election is remarkable for the many earnest and acrimonious discussions regarding how and wnen these two eminent politicians again will become ststesmen. Of the two lights of Tammany hall, the former governor, is believed to have the better chance of returning to statesmanship first. His friends never tire of conjuring up new honors for him. Regard mg the coming elections as mere incidents in the city's history, his most enthusiastic followers in the organization hope he will become the successor of Boss Curry and restore the glory of Tammany, Others want him drafted as the organization’s nominee for mayor next year to head off a probable fusion movement that might rTest the control of the city from the organization. These friends of the former governor realize that a really able fusion mayor easily might prove fatal to Tamfhany and force a great many of the 147,000 officeholders to go back to earning their living. There are others, however, who insist the former governor has outgrown his earlier ambition to be mayor and would be of greater service to the organization and the state as the successor to Senator Copeland, a post that must be filled in 1934. Still others contend that, if Governor Roosevelt should win the former governor should become a cabinet minister, and smilingly say that "the old potato” would do well to call a man of Mr. Smith’s executive ability to the post of secretary of agriculture and settle the farm problem once and for all. There are also a few who think he would make an excellent minister to the Irish Free State or Ambassador to France or Italy. These, however are suspected of being adherents of Boss Curry. While Mr. Smith’s friends can suggest many posts for him, the friends of the other prince of the organization now out of & job. Jimmie Walker, must content themselves with deciding which of two posts he had better take. They (Continued on Page 4-A. Col. 5.)

CHARLESTON. Mo. (UP). In an effort to halt Missouri’s syn thetic lion hunt, authorities “kid naped" Charles Wright, son of lion-hunter Denver Wrright. The fourteen year old boy was “abducted” by Frank Hequenbourg. a game warden, and held as hostage “until Wright listens to reason about this lion hunting business. Hequenbourg told the United Press. The boy left a hotel here with the game warden on “a little trip to look over grounds for the lion hunt.” The warden told the United Press he intended to hold the boy while Sheriff Jessie Jackson “talked reason t o Wright." Sheriff Jackson said he had been informed "by a party whom I do not know” that young Wright was held. He said he would “investigate.” “I have been informed Charles Wright had been kidnaped, that's all I know about it,” he said. SAY WILL MEET ALL PRICE CUTS Lawritson for Manager— Independents Are Silent After Meeting. Directors of the Lincoln Non­ stock Co-operative Milk Producers’ association, after agreeing at a meeting Saturday afternoon to meet any price cutting competition. announced that M. N. Lawritson had been asked to take the managership of the co-operative and that within a few days a meeting of association members and dealers in the Lincoln market will be called. Eight or ten men connected with independent milk distributors also held a meeting at the Sharp building Saturday evening. None of them would discuss the developments of the session and those who were not recognized by newspaper men refused to divulge their names. They Insisted they were there only to talk about their troubles and for a “visit.” J. L. White, president of the Producers' association, said Saturday night that he thought most of the dealers, including the smaller independent firms, would do business with the association. When the directors of the company and the dealers get together on contracts and agreements. WTiite said, the price of milk will be “put back where it belongs.” “When we get 95 or 100 percent membership among the producers the farmer will get a fair return for his product. And if a few of the dealers insist on cutting prices and not stringing along with us we'll meet any cut they want to make.” Lincoln dealers during the last week cut retail prices from 9 to 6 cents per quart. Their avowed purpose is to drive out cut rate competition. 7 Cent* In OmahS, Bluffs. OMAHA. (IP). Officials of the Nebraska-Iowa Cooperative Milk association announced that milk will sell in Omaha and Council Bluffs at seven cents a quart, starting Monday. The committee in a statement, said: “The milk situation in Omaha is not a war, It is simply this—that the six dairies buying their milk from the asociation are being undersold in the retail markets by competitors buying bootleg milk from farmers in Iowa who are willing to sell their milk at a lower cost." To enable the six affiliated dairies to sell at seven cents, the association sale comittee agreed to furnish milk to them “at a price which will enable them to meet competition," the statement said.

Several Lincoln persons went walking about the outside of the capitol Saturday afternoon, looking for the state convention of the “people’s party,” scheduled to. be held on the grounds outside the building. They said they could find no gathering that resembled a convention. Secretary of State Frank Marsh, whose duty it is to watch over the numerous “third” parties that have sprung up this year, said he saw nothing of the meeting. A notice published over the sig nature of Conrad Ren ) of Washington, national chairman of the people’s party, had called for Nebraskans to assemble on the capitol lawn to substitute mass prosperity for mass poverty. It is too late for any more par ties or candidates to find room for their names on an already overcrowded ballot. ' JACKSONVILLE, Fla UP. The jury in the Arthur Maillefcrt sweatbox death case found George W. Courson guilty of manslaughter and acquitted Solomon Higginbotham A manslaughter verdict in Florida carries a penalty of one to twenty years. Courson and Higginbotham were charged with first degree murder in indictments returned by the Duval county grand jury. Maillcfert died last June 3 in a sweatbox at Sunbeam prison camp. He was strangled to death on a chain, which was locked around his neck and looped about an overhead rafter. The Jury was out two hours and sixteen minutes before notifying Judge George Couper Gibbs it had reached a verdict. The finding was not in proper form, however, and Judge Gibbs sent the jurors back to rewrite it. Mrs. Rena Maillefert, mother of the dead New Jersey youth, calmly looked at the floor as the verdict was read. There was hardly a sound in the crowded courtroom. Higginbotham was discharged from custody. Courson’s attorney immediately filed notice of appeal for a new trial. Courson and Higginbotham contended MaJUtfert committed suicide rather than serve nine rears for robbery. State witnesses testified Maillcfert was placed in the sweatbox and chained up at Oourson’a direction. Courson claimed he acted only In a fatherly manner toward the boy, and that he placed him in the sweatbox only as a last resort to prevent him escaping. There was not s sign of demonstration as the words of the verdict fell. Mrs. Julia Maillefert said she had nothing to say about the outcome of the trial at present. Higginbotham rushed over to the press table, warmly grasped the hand of a reporter and said: “Just like I thought. They gave me a square deal. That was what I was expecting,” Courson said he “expected to better luck in the next trial.” Courson's bond of $5.000. assessed at a habeas corpus hearing some time ago, was allowed to stand pending the result of the new trial petition. In the summations Arthur Maillefert. young convict, was described alternately as a youth made desperate by horrors “more cruel than the Spanish Inquisition," and finally slain by torture, and as a fiercely willful prisoner who took his own life in despair when he failed to escape just puninshment. The closing arguments were largely built up around the fine distinction the lawyers drew between the words “desperation" and “despair,” and disagreement over whether Maillefert’s reaction was the reckless activity of the one, or the hopeless surrender of the other. Prosecutor Durrance told the jurors they were charged with a duty inherent in the jury system since it was established, “to stop the autocratic taking of life by despots and kings.” He called the Florida penal system an “institution of despotism.” Filed at Beatrice. BEATRICE. U*>. Petitions bearing more than 2.500 signatures and requesting Sunday moving picture shows are on file with the city commissioners.

CLEVELAND. UP. President Hoover asserted Saturday night, while a police-estimated throng of forty thousand people listened, that democratic leaders had circu- alted “absolutely untrue” reports as to the origin of the nation’s economic strain and had issued “contemptible statements” concerning his personal career. Given a two minute ovation as he entered the auditorium—the same hall where Calvin Coolidga was nominated in 1924—the president time and again launched out in his lengthy address against statements he quoted from speeches by “the democratic candidate ” He asserted that tha democratic nominee had sought wrongly to give the impression that the stock market crash was “the prime cause of this disaster.” He characterized as “amazing statements” quotations from “the democratic candidate" that the Smoot-Hawley tariff was “one of the most important factors in the presenet worldwide depression." His Personal Record. Then, turning to his own personal record, he described as ‘calumny*’ a statement from a ‘copy of Instructions Issued by the democratic national committee" to its speakers. He said the statement implied he had “engaged in the slavery of human beings'* thru contracting cheap Chineae labor in his early engineering days. He denied having employed such labor in the South African mines. *1 happen to have in the files in Washington, from the man who (Continued on Page 4-A, Col. 3.» CANDIDATES RHODES SCHOLAR SELECTED Committee Meets Dec. 10 to Name Two Who Will Represent State.

Characterizing Germany's refusal to take part in a preliminary four-power arms conference at Geneva as an affront both to France and to the League of Nations, a government spokesman indicated that France was unlikely to agree to hold the meeting in any other city. The selection of Geneva was made when Premier Herriot saw Prime Minister MacDonald this week in London. Italy, the fourth power that would participate in the meeting. agreed with the French and British that Geneva be the place for the conference. The French spokesman expressed satisfaction that the British “apparently realize now the real portent of Germany's demand for equality in armaments—namely, complete rearmament and the creation of a new army.” NORRIS 60EST0 CLEVELAND Will Opes Speaking Campaign for Roosevelt M’COOK. Neb. UP. Senator Norris left here Saturday night for Cleveland, O., to open his speaking campaign in support of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hi* last public appearance was when he introduced Governor Roosevelt to a crowd assembled at the county fair grounds here. BURNETT STYLE SHOP. Has a beautiful showing of new fur trimmed coats.—Adv. Two appeals in the suits of Her bert S. Daniel, as receiver of the Lincoln Trust company and as receiver of the Lincoln Safe Deposit company, bankruptc, against the Lincoln Trust company and Lincoln Safe Deposit company with Margaret Young, a bond holder of the bankrupt firm, as intervenor, were filed in the supreme court Saturday. The case was taken to the supreme court by Margare Young and others similarly situated. from the decision of the four district judges of Lancaster county who appointed the First Trust company trustee for the two bank rupt firms. The main question at issue is the alleged appointment of the trustee by the four judges in executive session rather than upon the evidence of the case. It is alleged that the session was not open to the attendance of the parties or their counsel and not within the meaning of judicial procedure. It is alleged that the court called into its session certain persons who were examined by the court in attempting to reach a decision in the matter of appointment of trustee, and none of these persons was placed under oath nor any record made of their testimony or the m- tervenor or others similarly situated given an opportunity to appear and object to the procedure or to the cross examinations. It is claimed that the court disregarded the issues. It is further alleged that the court erred in not taking evidence as to the fitness and suitability of the trust company, and that the proceedings were non-judicial and arbitrary, and that the appointment is void. Appointment of the First Trust company was for the purpose of servicing approximately $20,000,000 in bonds and securities of the two firms. Thirty-four lawyers are in the action to have the appointment set aside. Attorney George Craven filed the appeal on behalf of himself and the thirty three other attorneys. SOCIALISTS PREDICT GAIN Expect to Triumph in Senatorial Poll in France. PARIS. UP). Leaders of Premier Herriot’s radical socialist party predicted that Sunday’s senatorial elections would bring an increase in their representation in the upper house. The elections will settle eleven senate seats. Candidates varying in age from just under forty to eighty-six are competing for them. The upper chamber has 314 members, and roughly one- third of this number is renewed every three years, the term being nine years. * Normally only 3(H> contests would take place this year, but there have been four deaths and Albert Lebrun resigned from the senate to become president. In each of the thirty-two departments in which renewals will occur, the voting will be by small electoral colleges comprising at best about 1,000 members. Those entitled to vote are general coun­ cillors. municipal authorities, deputies, and other local officeholders. An absolute majority is needed on the first or second ballot, on the third a plurality suffices. Radical socialists base their confidence on the theory that the leftward swing which swept Andre Tardieu s right centrist government out of power last May would be repeated. In other political quarters it was said the elections would make little difference in the party standing. LEAP CAUSES DEATH. NEW YORK. (UP). Frank H.
