Palmer To Speak Markets, Financial and Business CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE Dress Shop Owner Slain by Gunmen CHICAGO. VP) The bullet riddled body of Rudolph Sabatino, a Michigan avenue dress shop owner, wags found in the center of a northwest side street Tuesday. Jefferson Park police placed the time of the killing at 10 o'clock Monday night after guestlonlng Harold Hilding, a resident of the neighborhood who said he heard shots and saw a car speeding from the scene. Hilding said he thought the speeding car had been backfiring and paid no attention to the noise. Mrs. Georgiana Sabatino, 25, whom the slain man married New Year's day. said her husband left home at 8 o'clock Monday night to "see about a Persian lamb coat." Police said the killers apparently drove with Sabatino until they reached the sparsely settled neighborhood, pushed him from the car and then shot him. He was shot three times in the right side of his head, once in each of his arms and once in his left shoulder. Powder burns indicated he was fired upon at close range.

CP) Discussing that "American phenomenon, the pressure group," Marguerite M. Wells, president of the National League of Women Voters. Monday night urged her organization to emulate David and do its legislative fighting "with its own pebble and slingshot." In its objective to restore the habit of direct individual citizen participation in government, Miss Wells said, the league's aim is almost opposite that of the "pressure group." "Even when some of the league's purposes such as peace, education, and cdnsumer protection coincide with those of certain pressure groups," she told the opening ses sion of the league's 13th national convention, "the league should co operate with them only after action begins, and then with its own weap ons. "When the league becomes a part of a sort of merger of organizations, it either subjects them to Irksome restraints in our behalf or diverts us from our own plans.'

Funds Voted For TVA Job WASHINGTON. D. C. UP) By the narrow margin of seven votes, the house finally approved Monday a $2,613,000 appropriation for starting construction of a huge Tenes-see Valley Authority dam near Gil-bertsville, Ky. . The members decided by a 159 to 152 roll call vote, to reverse two earlier decisions and agree to the appropriation, which the senate already had approved. There appeared little prospect, however, that the money would become available immediately because it is Included in the $1,425,- 145,000 independent offices appropriation bill, over which the two cham bers still are in disagreement. The house refused for the sec ond time to approve a senate rider to the measure requiring senate confirmation of any new officials of the government's many inde pendent agencies who receive more than $5,000 annually. Until this difference is composed, the big -supply bill cannot go to President Roosevelt for signature. The Gilbertsville appropriation was approved without debate, al though it had been the subject of lively controversy, when it was before the house previously. The cost of the completed dam has been estimated at more than 100 million dollars. Our New Neighbors Paotaf raph Central Illinois Serv ice. COLFAX.
