The employment of "economic patent
medicines" as cure for the high cost
of living'was attacked by Mr. Hoover
in his testimony before the legislative
committee. He said what was re
quired was a definite coordination of
policies of readjustment and a policy
of seeking a remedy through studying
conditions under the surface of things.

FELLOW PlISONER BEATEN
Atlanta, Gn., May 24.-W. H1. Me
Kelvie, serving a two-year term at
Oakland convict camp in Fulton Coun
ty, was set upon and beaten into un
consciousness today by other prisoners
who objected to McKelvie's statement
that he had been well treated at the
camp, according to reports tonight
from the wardens.
-The affair had its beginning in
communications to the newspapers
from Dick Jester, a notorious pris
oner at the canj, that he had been
given more lashes than the rules pro
vide and had been kicked and other
wise mistreated by guards. Local
newspapers sent reporters to the
camp who obtained statements from
both sides, McKelvie being one of the
prisoners who said he was well treated
and had no complaint to make. At
Ithe camp today it was said Walter
Strickland and other prisoners read
4cKelvie's statement in the nawspa
per this morning and immediately
leaped upon him.
The Atlanta Humane Society has
recently been making efforts to abol
ish whipping in convict c.amps of the
county, and through it Jester made a
number of charges as to food, sani
tary conditions and punishment, which
have been denied by those in charge.
Tampa, FIa., May 24.-Filling five
small auto tire inner tubes, morphine
worth thousands of dollars was seized
by Federal officers here this after
noon, after the package, which came
here by boat from Cuba. had been
called and receipted for as "bees
vax" by a man who signed his name
as "John Smith." After the fellow
was locked up he said he was really
named Jones, a newcomer here, and
that the package belonged to a broker
named John C. Smith, who had sent
him for it. There is no broker of
that name in Tampa.
