WOULD EXPAND STAMP PLAN Federal Farm Officials Fear Funds Insufficient; Many Applications WASHINGTON, Aug. 18 (#>)— Federal farm officials, setting up nationwide machinery to expand the food stamp plan,'expressed concern today that funds may not be sufficient to meet applications from scores of cities eager to try the relief scheme. Secretary Wallace estimated he had "between $50,000,000 and $60.000,000" to use on the experiment this year. The food stamp plan is designed to help farmers by disposal of surplus crops, and low-income groups by providing them more food without additional cost. Wallace already has appointed regional directors for the Middle West and West Coast-Rocky Mountain areas and similar administrators will be named for the South, East, and possibly other regions. Under the original plan, which started at Rochester, N. Y., persons on relief could exchange $1 pay for food stamps worth $1.50. They received four 25-cent orange-colored stamps which could be exchanged for any foods, and two 25-cent blue stamps to be used in buying foods designated as surplus by the secretary. Previously the Federal government purchased these surplus foods directly and distributed them through state relief agencies. Under the stamp plan, the relief family does its shopping at the corner grocery store. Tht grocers have been able to eash these stamps at local banks, which are repaid by the Treasury and Secretary of Agriculture. Grocers, who formerly protested the free distribution of competitive food products, have been enthusiastic supporters of the stamp plan because it gives them additional sales. POSTERS NOTIFY WAGE EARNERS Within a few days there will appear in every post office in the country a Social Security Board poster notifying wage earners that statements showing the amount of wages credited to their old-age insurance accounts are available, Charles E. Bailey, manager of the Board's field oflice in Hagerstown, announced today. These posters will also be displayed, he added, in the oflices of the United States Employment Service, those of the Railroad Retirement Board, and in union-labor halls. The Board's poster announcement reads: "How much have you earned toward your old-age security? "The amount of your old-age insurance check will depend upon the wages credited to your old-age insurance account. "You can find out how much is credited to your account if you will fill in and mail a post card like this (a facsmilie of the card is shown) that you can get at any Social Security Board field office.

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 18 (/?).— An aviation lighting engineer reported today the use of "electron gun' sodium vapor lamps with radio beams to guide airplanes to safe, easy three-point landings at night or in "soupy" weather. W. A. Pennow of the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company, described the new system as a "combination of instru ment and visual landing." Green and white incandescent lights are us-ed to mark the boundaries of the runway at the beginning and end and the sodium vapor lamps illuminate the final glidepath of the planes, guided to the runway by the radio beams. The lights are set flush with the ground and send off rays at the angle of approach of an incoming plane. The system enables the pilot to land at conventional speeds, Pennow said, because from the moment IIB sees the first runway light he knows exactly how many feet he has in which to set his plane down. Tests at the Akron, O., airport showed the new sodium contact lights were visible at 410 feet during thick weather or at night when incandescent lights are visible only 33 feet, Pennow reported. aPwNFr'.jDWA SHRDLU N UNU GIRL FORMER SAYS HUNGARY AND GERMANY ARE COMRADES (Continued from Pag» t) that Minister of the Interior Wilhelm Frick, who acted as Count ^saky's host, never dabbles in for- dgn politics. The conclusion therefore was voiced that the "comradeship in arms" of which Nazi editors spoke ;ould only have been welded by talks with persons other than Frick. The Nazi press, meanwhile, displayed prominently reports of al- eged acts of terrorism against Germans in Poland. Growing in intensity daily, the German press campaign follows the pattern 'of simi- ar campaigns before the Austrian Anschluss and the breaking up of zecho-Slovakia. Renouncing the formality of mobilization, the German army stands ready at any moment—from the Baltic to Slovakia—to enforce, if lecessary, Hitler's demands for re- urn of Danzig and a physical junc- ion of East Prussia and Germany proper. The well informed Dienst aus Deutschland said the German dis- ussion with Csaky established that Hungary and Germany see "eye to ye." Such an attitude on Hungary's >art would indicate a complete re- •ersal of her former cordial rela- ions with Poland. When Hungary nnexed Carpatho - Ukraine last pring there were joyful celebra- ions over the achievement of the ong-awaited "common border" with oland. COBB'S SPEED NOT FASTEST BONNEV1LLE SALT FLATS, Utah, Aug. IS (£»)—-John Cobb teered his racing car through the measured mile on the snow white Salt. Flats today at a speed announced as 352.94 miles an hour. The northbound run started at 6:42 A. M. M.S.T. from a point approximately six miles south o£ the measured mile m-rkers. To observers it appeared as if the Englishman cui. the motors on his 2600-horse power automobile before he had completed the full mile. His speed, however, exceeded his owne previous high of 350.2. set on this course last September, and was only 4.5 miles an hour short of Captain George E. T. Eyston's world land speed record of 357.5'. Cobb canceled plans for a return run and postponed further assaults on the land speed record at least until tomorrow.

"They said," she testified, "that national socialism (the party of Hitler in Germany) was fie only thing that could save us—I don't know what we were going to be saved from. "They said we Germans weren't •etting consideration in this country and it was about time we spoke up." The leaders, she said at the outset, required bund youth to study the life of Hitler from pamphlets which came from Germany. Miss Vooros, German-born and 19, was called as a "surprise" witness by the House committee investigating un-American activities in its attempt to link the Bund with Nazi propaganda agencies. In a black dress piped with white, and speaking in calm tones, she related how in South Brooklyn Bund unit girls in her group were examined as to their knowledge after the study of Hitler. Asked where the pamphlets came from she said: "I didn't Imow at the time where they were printed but they came from Germany." She said the girls —19 of them who met every Saturday—were required to speak German at their gatherings. "We were fined one or two cents if we spoke English," she declared. Miss Vooros also demonstrated with upraised arm and extended hand how the Bund girls were required to salute when they started their meetings. Rhea Whitley, committee counsel, asked how she happened to affiliate. "A friend of mine recommended it to me because of the social activities going on but she didn't tell me it was an arm of the Nazi organ- zation. I learned that later." After she had belonged a short :ime, she asserted, she was told she needed a uniform and was sold one for $11 by Tillie Koch, whom she identified as her immediate leader. DETROIT LAKES, Minn., Aug. IS, (JP).— A gray-haired, stooped Rip Van Winkle is awakening today :n the little town of Richwood near here. He's Dan Blue, 64, struggling to catch up on 41 years of history that swirled past while stone walls and bars kept him prisoner for murdering a fellow farm hand for his money. '* Danny, an Indian, thought commutation of his life sentence was pretty nice. But he is startled by paved highways, automobiles that travel 60 miles an hour, airplanes, tractors and radio. Stillwater prison officials brought him home by car to the cottage and SO-acre farm he bought by earning 50 cents a day making straw mattresses and counting vegetables from the prison farm. He last remembered traveling 12- miles by buggy to the station here when folks from the east told of a JAIL MAN FOR CHAINING SON Clarksburg, W. Va., Aug. 18, (JP). —A 63-year-old farmer began a 10- day jail sentence today on a charge of chaining a son, 22, to a bed for a month "to keep him out of the garden." State Trooper W. E. Murphy said Daniel Day also explained he confined the young man in his bedroom n an effort to prevent him from being taken to a state institution vhere the father, now sterilized. ad been a patient and where his mother had died. Murphy said the son, Roy, was nentally unstable. Haled into court on a charge of ssault and battery, Day said he chained Roy "to keep him out of he garden—he would trample it lown." Magistrate Charles D. Smith, in mposlng sentence, said he made lay promise "not to chain the boy any more, but to give him good reatment." Authorities, trying to have the son hospitalized, said the state hospitals are crowded to capacity. Campbell Travels Fastest On Water CONTSTON, England. Aug. IS (JP). —The speedboat Bluebird II, with Sir Malcolm Campbell at the wheel, skimmed over Lake Coniston today at 134 miles an hour, the fastest time ever made by man on water. Officially, however, this was not a new record. The time must be made both ways over the measured mile. Campbell was forced to stop at the end of the downward journey because of trouble with the Bluebird's water intake. motor-kite a fanatic named Langley invented. The 12 mile trip was an all-day affair over muddy roads. Danny since has seen planes over the prison. He heard they travelled 200 miles an hour. But 60 in a car —"Whew, it's too fast." He was sickened by fence posts flickering past. "Wonderful thing, radio. I heard one once." Danny blurted it out, then turned his head. You get ttiat way after watchful guards for two score years have forbidden conversation or even quick peeks at visitors. Danny plowed with oxen. Now he wonders about tractors. But the ?3,500 he ea'rned in 41 years won't buy a tractor. The state will let him withdraw only $25 a month of the $429 cash and $600 government bonds he has left. That's about enough to live on with what the farm should bring, Danny believes. Charges Leche Accepted Graft Prosecutor Says Ex-Governor And Weiss Divided $148,000. DALLAS, Tex., Aug." 18 (/P)—Assistant U. S. Attorney General 0. John Rogge charge today in Federal court that former Governor Richard Leche of Louisiana and Seymour Weiss, Louisiana political figure, had accepted graft "in one of the most venal single 'transactions I ever came across." The Federal prosecutor appeared at a hearing for the removal to Louisiana of Freeman Burford, Dallas independent oil operator, charged jointly with Leche and Weiss with violation of the Counally "hot oil"" act. Rogge described the alleged payment of $148,000 by Burford in connection with the piping of oil from the rich Rodessa field in Louisiana into Texas. "The central fact iu this case is that the East Texas Refining Com-, pany did pay $148,000 to Weiss," said Rogge. "Of that, Leche and Weiss each took .$67,000. Weiss was high in Louisiana political circles. The two held high official positions. Leche was governor- elect. "They got together and divided $134,000 and the governor-elect took sixty-seven $1,000 bills from Weiss. "Call it anything you like—commission or anything else—but it was payment of graft. The two most reprehensible persons were Leche and-Weiss." PERSHING URGES A LARGER ARMY NEW YORK, Aug. IS (JP)— The man who commanded America's 'World War troops believes the time has come for the United States to build a bigger, stronger army. "The regular army should be much larger," said Gen.

LANG, Bay of Islands, Nfld, Aug. 18 (JP)— In high good humor, President Roosevelt fished today in the Newfoundland waters he last saw as a youth while on a fishing and hunting trip with his brother-in-law, Hall Roosevelt, in 1908.

TULSA, Okla., Aug. 18 (^—Oil- dom. was head over heels in confusion today after Sinclair, the major buyer which started an avalanche of crude oil price cuts, quit posting its prices in four states without explanation. The puzzling turn followed the about-face of two independent companies which rescinded previous reductions of 20 cents a barrel. Sinclair Prairie Oil Marketing Co. issued a cryptic statement that at 7 a. m. it "would, until further notice, discontinue posting the price that it would pay for crude oil" in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Kansas, Sinclair officials declined comment and observers said they did not understand it. Wells remained shut down in the four states where Sinclair said it was withdrawing price postings and in Arkansas and Louisiana. Sinclair's 20-cent price slash Aug. 10 affected all six states. Restoration of earlier crude prices by two small Tulsa buyers, Danciger Oil Refineries, Inc., and Bell Oil & Gas Co., was enough of an upward nudge to prompt recurring but unconfirmed reports that other buyers might follow. In Arkansas, Gov. Carl E. Bailey ordered state policemen- to Eldoi-ado to enforce the shutdown order. TOURNAMENT ON SUNDAY Archers To Stage Annual Club Championship At Park.

At committee headquarters here, officials said today they are piecing together the party's record of the last congressional session and are seeking to publicize it to the limit during the next few months. A committee spokesman said a comprehensive preview of the Republican platform is being drawn from the party votes in Congress, the speeches of party leaders, and the reports of special committees appointed by Rep. Martin (R-Mass), the House minority leader. These committees studied such questions as national debt, relief, monetary policy and national defense. They sharply criticized some administration policies and offered alternative suggestions, stressed economy and recommended the consolidation and perfection of administration social programs. Committee authorities reported that Republican strategy calls for three distinct periods of campaigning before the 1940 election. The first, from now until Congress reconvenes in January, will be devoted to efforts to impress the party's 1939 record on the public. Among other things, spokesmen are expected to contend that Republicans were largely responsible for the recent changes in the social security law. When Congress returns, the party will euter the second campaign period, relying on its developing legislatiA-e record and the speeches of its members on Senate and House floors to 'emphasize its policies. The third phase will begin after the national convention next .summer.
