BRA? BRADFORD iDAItT RECORD LAST EDITION AND THE 8 i , VOL. XXV. NO. 221. wmtmnnm TnF U NRA PROGRAM V r U CREAS1 Flight of "Little Fellow" . .Away From Blue Eagle, Strike Situation and Other Disturbing Factors Have Leaders Worried. Washington, Oct. 20 Disturbing signs of revolt against the administration's far-flung recovery program were hoisted today along several sectors of the front where the fighting is keenest. They have administration leaders distinctly worried. In the agrarian mid-west, embittered farm leaders have called a national farm strike for tomorrow in protest against low prices for what the farmer has to sell and high prices for what the farmer has to buy. In the strife-torn coal industry, particularly in Pennsylvania and Illinois, miners are battling between themselves, and with the owners of "big steel's" captive mines. Behind these disturbing factors is another, not so well organized, but potentially more dangerous than either a revolt of the "little fellow," the small employer, who is finding tough sledding in adhering to conditions of the NBA in competition with "the big fellows." For some days, NRA officials have been disturbed by the flight of the "little fellow" away from the blue eagle. Not much has been said about it, but quietly they have set to work to ascertain how compliance with the NRA can be made less onerous for the little man, confronted with rising overhead costs and a market that has not risen proportionately. ' The administration is fighting the recovery battle on a dozen fronts, the NRA (National Recovery Act); the AAA (Agricultural Adjustment Administration); the PWA (Public Works Administration); the FERA (Federal Emergency Relief Administration) ; the CCC (Commodity Credit Corporation); et cetera. Yet in the popular mind, the NRA epitomizes the whole program, and it is against this organization that most of the criticism is directed. NRA officials hastened to explain today that the farm strike could not be laid at their door, as they have been concerned with the problems of industrial regulation, industrial reemployment, and industrial recovery generally. Yet Gov. Charles Bryan of Nebraska, Gov. William Langer of North Dakota, and other critics of the recovery program blamed the NRA for the plight in which the farmer finds himself. They insisted the NRA has increased the cost of everything the farmer must buy, while failing to increase the return that the farmer gets for his wheat, corn, hogs and cattle. . It was under these circumstances that the President met with his cabinet today for a frank appraisal of the situation. In any event, Washington is deeply disturbed by the increasing signs of restiveness over the whole recovery program. The steps to be taken to meet it are something else again. ROADS RECOMMENDED Assemblyman Thos. B. Wilson has recommended to the State Highway Department the construction of six miies cf "Pinchot" type roads in Mc-Kean county, the construction of which is to be started in the near future. The Two Mile road, near Port Allegany, is to receive about three miles of this new construction, beginning at the end of the present macadam, and Bullis Mill road the balance. The Births Mills program will complete the road to Kings Run. At $5.00 and $6.00 Great Values Sound Quality Smart styles in Footwear For Men and Women Oppenheim's Shoes that Satisfy x20-lt II. A.

J. j The home of an aged woman was raided by the strikers and j the excitement caused a shock j from which she may die. One of the wounded is also reported j dying. Juslice Department Chief Put in Charge of Investi nation. Washington, Oct. 20 All records and inff'V.ation relative to the kidnaping of i Lindbergh baby were in the hands of J. Edgar Hoover, chief of thr investigation division of the Justice Deoartment today. The famous kidnaping squad, which has solved every abduction case since the federal statute was enacted, was formally in charge cf one of the most perplexing crimes of modern times. In the beginning the case was in the hands of Elmer L. Irey, chief of the special intelligence section of the internal revenue bureau, although the Department of Justice and other federal enforcement agencies cooperated. Both Hoover and Irey said there were no new clues or information of importance in connection with the kidnaping. "The case has not been reopened because it was never closed," Hoover said. "No kidnaping or any other case is considered closed until it is solved." Each of the important kidnaping cases handled by the federal govern ment have been studied carefully for their possible relationship to the Lind bergh crime. The records and acti vities of all known kidnapers, racket eers, gangsters and other recognized criminals have been watched closely in an effort to trace the Lindbergh abductors. Attorney General Cummings issued a statement saying the transfer of jurisdiction in the case had been authorized in order to centralize acti vities under one government division. The division of investigation with special equipment and facilities to track down kidnapers is in a better position to carry on the work than the special intelligence section the duties of which are chiefly in connection with income tax investigations. WARREN BANK TO BE REORGANIZED Harrisburg, Oct. 20 With their re organization plans approved by the state department of banking, 11 addi tional state banks, open on a re stricted basis since last March, worked today for an early return to unlimited operations. On September 30, when 15 institutions were taken over for liquidation. Dr. William D. Gordon, secretary of banking, approved the reorganization of 18 institutions. The additional 11 make it possible for 29 banks to return to normalcy as soon as officers carry out provisions of the plans. Only 24 state banks now remain to reorganize. Banks for which reorganization plans were approved included: Imperial State Bank, Imperial; Me-chanicsburg Trust company, St. Clair Savings and Trust company, Pittsburgh; Warren Savings and Trust company, Warren. STRIKING PUPILS RETURN TO BOOKS Ligonier, Pa., Oct. 20 More than 200 students returned to their books today following a two-day strike precipitated by the suspension, of three football players because of schdlastic difficulties. The footballers remained ineligible. Principal B. E. Connelley blamed the strike on "a school board fight." He said a candidate for the school board made a speech to the strikers promising to have the players reinstated. School board members were divided in their opinion of the principal's action in suspending the players. Lost Diamond Ring Ecten Walker avenue and Main street. Liberal reward.

This picture shows the battering ram used by the crowd to break into the prisoner's cell. CAPTIVE Mil PEACE PARLEYS REACH IMPASSE Pittsburgh, Oct. 20 With practically all commercial mines in the bituminous field operating under the NRA, action by President Roosevelt was awaited today in the peace parley impasse reached by mine union leaders and steel-owned captive mine operators. While considerable optimism was expressed over increased operations in the commercial mine field and at the Weirton Steel company plant, many leaders admitted troubles of the two industries could not be regarded as finally settled until some solution was found for the strike of 20,000 employes, of the captive pits. Negotiations .between Philip Murray, international vice president of the United Mine Workers, and Thomas Moses, president of the H. C. Frick Coke company, have reached a stalemate. There have been no meetings for over a week. Murray said: "When there is no negotiating, there are no negotiations. "When the president ordered Mr. Moses and myself to negotiate, he made it understood that if an impasse was reached he would step in and arbitrate the differences himself. "There is such an impasse now. I asked the president, through John L. Lewis, to step in. It is now in the government's hands." Cornelia Bryce Pinchot, wife of the governor, speaking before a steel workers' meeting last night, rapped Moses' action in delaying negotiations. She said: "It is one more instance of an attempt by him to throw a monkey-wrench into the machinery of the government, and of bad faith on the part of the steel corporation." LUTHERANS ELECT OFFICERS . Philadelphia, Oct. 20 The Rev. Dr. H. W. A. Hanson, president of Gettysburg college, today was the new president of the board of American missions of the United Lutheran church, succeeding Rev. J. B. Markward, of Springfield, O. The Rev.

The Reich Department store, of 3-5 Main street, is now selling at sacrifice prices at a storeroom located at 102 Main street formerly occupied by the Rapp store, the entire stock of the Perk Bros., store of Warren. Supplemented with excess stock from their Bradford store the Reich company decided to conduct a ten day sale to make room for the higher class of merchandise which they are constantly adding. This disposal sale has been drawing large crowds and will last but only a short time. It gives many local and suburban territory shoppers an opportunity to stock up on their winter needs at prices that are astounding. Included in this stock to be disposed of are Men's underwear, men's work clothing, men's, women's and children's hosiery and footwear, rubbers and other articles too numerous to mention. This store does not in any way interfere with the regular business being conducted at the Reich store, 3-5 Main street.

IA0 UVJ EXPECT STATES IUTPUT QUOTA Recalcitrant States in En forcement of Quotas Will Have Oil Laws Enforced for Them by U. S. Gov ernment.. Washington, Oct. 20 Recalcitrant states in enforcement of the new oil production quotas will have the oil laws enforced for them by the United States government it became clear today. , States will be expected to enforce the new laws within their own borders, but there is ample authority for federal intervention where state enforcement fails, Secretary of Interior Ickes said. Several western states were warned recently that production in their territory was excessive. It was explained at the time that particular state agencies concerned were not held to blame, but were merely being told of the situation. Where a state deliberately fails the federal oil administration may: 1. Enter the state and re-allocate production quotas among the producing wells; 2. Shut down wells that produce excess oil; 3., Shut off oil shipments out of the state where derelictions occur. The regulations were broadened to include not only crude production, but to co-relate gasoline refining operations with inventories and sales in each district. The entire Country was ordered districted for this purpose. OUTBREAK OF UNREST SWEEPS MEXICO CITY Mexico City, Oct. 20 Tension heightened here today as new troop movements and further communist activities caused an outbreak of unrest. 1 While three regiments entrained for Vera Cruz and other detachments went to San Lois Potosi, communists stoned the Japanese legation. Shouting "down with imperialism," they flung a shower of rocks which broke several windows, the nfled before police arrived. The war department remained silent on reasons for the swift dispositions of its forces. It was unofficially stated the government was taking "precau tions." POLICEMAN FOUND GUILTY Youngstown, p., Oct. 20 A .criminal court jury today returned a verdict of guilty against Thomas Joyce, ousted policeman charged with aiding and abetting highway robbers.

(Copyright, 1933, by I. N. S.) Moscow, Oct. 20 The Soviet foreign office will make public at 11 o'clock tonight an exchange of cablegrams between President Franklin D. Roosevelt and President Michael Kalinin of the all-union central committee of Soviet Russia which have opened the way for early recognition of the Soviet government by the United States. International News Service is able to make this exclusive revelation from authoritative sources. 1 ' Taking the initiative, according to this information, President Roosevelt is understood to have dispatched a telegraph to Kalinin expressing willingness of his administration to open negotiations with the Soviets for the purpose of establishing official relations and effecting an amicable settlement of all outstanding differences. Throughout the morning, rumors the United States would formally announce Russian recognition late today spread throughout Moscow, and received a measure of apparent official confirmation on the announcement by the foreign office that a communique, whose subject matter was not made known, would be issued at 11 p. m. The information obtained by International News Service, however, revealed that the communique would merely detail the exchange of messages between the American and Russian governments. - There appeared little doubt, however, that this publication would reveal that the way has been cleared for early recognition. FRANKLIN STORE ROBBED Franklin, Pa., Oct. 20 Professional clothiers and packers "who knew how to choose and rapidly back" were suspected today, of the looting of the J. T.

Omaha, Neb., Oct. 21 An appeal to farmers all over the country, and particularly those in the middle west, to join the farm strike to start at noon tomorrow was issued here today by Milo Reno, national president of the Farmers Holiday Association. Reno predicted that 90 per cent of the farmers in Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota and the two Dakotas would align themselves with the movement. "We have had assurance from thousands of farmers in the Nebraska-Iowa territory that they would support the strike," Reno declared. "We are going to concentrate on making it 100 per cent "effective in this territory and when it is, we anticipate no difficulty in getting the whole country to follow us." Picketing of' highways to prevent non-striking farmers from marketing their products is possible, Reno said, but neither asked nor sanctioned by the heads of the movement. It was the activity of pickets which resulted in bloodshed in the middle-west during two previous farm uprisings which followed, declaration of farm strikes. "Picketing may or may not occur. We have no control over that. It is a local problem. Members in some localities may think it is necessary. I believe that farm sentiment is much stronger now for the strike than it was at either time we declared strikes before. Farmers all over the country realize that the only way they will get a reasonable price for their products is through a concerted non-selling movement."
