Henry Ford Turns Fire on Tariff Bill; Hoover Will Veto It, He Says, BY WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS (Copyrieht. 1930. bv Scrlpps-Howard Newspaper*.) DEARBORN, Mich., May 20. Characterizing the present Hawley- Smoot tariff measure as needless and iniquitous, Henry Ford today predicted that President Hoover certainly would veto it, if it ever is lead before him. During an exclusive interview given to Scripps-Howard newspa pers, the automobile king did not mince words. Sitting in his hand some, yet simple, office here, he de nounced the super-tariff, which con gress is now framing, as certain to STARK OUSTER IN VOTE PROBE IS DEWED Grand Jury Asks New Chief in Quiz of Alleged Election Frauds. Climaxing a political feud of long standing, the Marion county grand jury today demanded the ouster of Judson L. Stark, prosecutor, as di rector of a probe into primary elec tion fraud. Carrying a typewritten declara tion, the jury today filed unexpect edly into criminal court to present Judge James A. Collins with a re quest that a special prosecutor be named to "relieve Stark of any em barrassment” in conduct of the probe. The request was made after jurors had interrupted Stark’s questioning of election witnesses in the morn ing session. To Act Wednesday Collins indicated he will act Wednesday on the request. It reads as follows: "In view of the fact that the prosecutor, Mr. Stark, was a suc cessful candidate in this primary and so a part of the ticket up for election in the fall, we think it is fair and ethical to relieve him from any possible embarassment or pres sure in the matter of pressing this probe. "The grand jury requests that a special prosecutor be appointed to attend the grand jury in this in vestigation proceeding.” The paper was signed by grand jurors Charles G. Fitch, foreman; J. M. Beggs, O. F. Millisei;, R. J. O’Reilly, A. B..Glick and George Niebergall. Regarded by many as a gesture to remove any delay in the probe, the request of the jury is recognized as being regulated by outside forces. Stark Refused Collin* Several weeks ago Collins, defeat ed candidate for the renomination, attempted to force Stark to remove Vinson H. Manifold as grand jury deputy prosecutor. Stark declined to recognize Collins’ demand. Stark and Collins then entered into open warfare. Start of the jury probe into elec tion fraud two weeks ago saw re newal of Collins’ attempt to displace Manifold. Stark retaliated by tak ing personal charge of the investi gation, and excluding Manifold from the jury chambers during questioning of witnesses. Fitch is a prominent figure in the* fight. He is jury foreman and mem ber of an election board during the primary, -who, it is known, is friendly to Collins. * The ouster request is said to have been drawn by Fitch. Stark was irate on learning of the jury's action. "The report says I am in an embarrassing position. I want it known I am not in the least embarrassed, nor are any of my deputies. They Don’t Want Me “This Is a surprise to me,” Stark told Collins, “but I guess they don’t want me any more.” Collins answered with the asser tion, “but this is the jury’s request.” "I will be glad to prosecute any body who stole votes for or against me, even if I am nominated,” Stark told Collins. As the jurors returned to their chambers Stark was with them, in tent upon spending the remainder of the session in questioning wit nesses who had been subper.aed. With the ouster petition, the grand jury also filed a demand election records be impounded before the grand jury. This includes poll books, tally sheets and recapitula tion sheets held by election com missioner under guard at the court house. Charges that fraud was per petrated on an extensive scale in the tabulating of Democratic votes for judge of probate court and pros ecutor, are made in recount peti tions on file today in circuit court through actions by Municipal Judge Thomas E. Garvin, defeated candi date for the probate bench, and Raymond F. Murray, one oC three losers in the race for prosecutor. The action is seen as the back ground of a criminal court fight started Monday by Mrs. Claudia B. Ripley, 42 East Thirty-sixth street, who petitioned for the impounding of election ballots and records into the custody of Collins. Mrs. Ripley alleges that evidence of fraud may be obtained through judicial inspec tion of primary records. Mrs. Ripley, wife of John W. Rip ley. former assistant fire chief, was active la campaigning for Judge Garvin, it is known. Hearing arguments on Mrs. Rip ley’s petition Monday, Collins indi cated her request will not be granted, but deferred a ruling until Wednesday.

VOLUME 42—NUMBER 8 injure the nation instead of bene fiting it. In Henry Ford’s opinion high tar iffs will not stimulate industry, but will slow it down by a procss of stultification. It will not do away with unemployment, but eventually will increase it by limiting, or kill ing, world trade, without which business can not properly expand. In fact, Ford declared, the tariff bill belongs to another political era and never should have been intro duced, because, in effect, it turns the people of this country over to a handful of men to exploit as their own private preserve.

By United Press OLD POINT COMFORT, Va., May 20.—The navy played at war off the Virginia Capes today with President Hoover a fascinated spectator. In the magnificent battle array the combined forces of the United States fleet paraded past the crack new light cruiser Salt Lake City and then plunged into a game of war such as never before had been played in a presidential review. With the presidential flag flying in honor of its distinguished guest, the Salt Lake City steamed out from Old Point Comfort to meet the fleet thirty-six miles off shore. Two submarines appearing off the starboard bow dipped below the sur face as the great battle ships, ghost like on the horizon, gathered speed for their dash into action. The Salt Lake City steamed at twenty knots alongside the aircraft carrier Lexington as more than 100 planes rolled along the deck of the carrier and took the air at the rate of ten a minute, joining the dirigible Los Angeles.

Valentino Estate Built Up by Gullible Public By United Press LOS ANGELES, May 20.—Movie fans who prize some trinket as a former possession of Rudolph Valentino, noted screen sheik, to day literally could “read ’em and weep.” S. George Ullman, deposed executor of the film sheik’s estate, has revealed how he assertedly turned a debt of $165,000,000 into a SSOO *OO estate by exploiting the gullible public. \ With coaching from his attorneys, Ullman told how he organ ized Valentino clubs all over the world to aid in exploitation of two films which the estate owned. “Valentino had about $16,000 worth of hardware, swords, armor and the like,” Ullman said. “It cost me $35,000 to fix up legends and publicize the stuff, but I sold it for $97,000. Rudy had lots of books, but he had only autographed a few of them, and he didn’t have a bookmark. I had a bookplate designed and stuck it inside the covers of the books, which were worth only about two bits apiece, and at the sale they fetched as high as $10.” “I venture to predict,” he said, “that this bill is the last legislation of its kind anybody ever will try to get through congress. The day when this country will stand for that sort of thing is past. “Who wants this high tariff bill?” Ford continued. “We certainly don’t. I think it would be very educational to tell the public just who it is that does want it. The President does not want it. I am told that con gress does not want it. No up-to date business man wants it. Who, then, is forcing it on the country? “You say it is the contention of Population of Fourth Ward Shows Gain of 32,158; Only Three Out. Final figures in the 1930 Indian apolis census, which are expected to show a substantial population in crease over J 920, probably will be announced Friday, it was said to day by census officials. Completion of the county popula tion check is expected to be made shortly after the city total is ob tained. Three city wards still remain to be announced. They are the Fifth, Sixth and Thirteenth. Census offi cials, revising figures already an nounced, said several corrections would be necessary. Officials today announced popu lation in the Fourth ward was 76,847 as compared to 44,689 in 4920, an increase of 32,158. The ward is said to be the city’s largest residential area. It is bordered on the north by Thirty-eighth street, on the south by Tenth street and White river and extends west along Speed way avenue to White river and Riv erside pajk. The eastern boundaries are West*street in the southern part and along Fall creek to the south line of Thirty-eighth street at the state fairground. Figures for the twelve wards, now announced, show the population in these areas total 322,599. Using the population figures for 1920 for the remaining three, the total for the city would be 367,491. However, the Fifth and Sixth wards are on the west side near the downtown district and if census takers are right in their assertion that working men have moved from these areas to the outlying districts, population of these wards may be less than ten years ago. $ However, the Thirteenth ward, located on the south side in the Garfield park district, is expected to show a gain due to the heavy in flux of residents in the last few years. Census officials have estimated the city’s population to be near 350,000. HAROLD LLOYD ~liT ILL Screen Comedian Recovering From Sudden Attack of Appendicitis. Bu United Press HOLLYWOOD, Cal., May 20.

For example, the barriers against mass immi gration. As for a tariff wall to shut out foreign goods, I feel certain we could hold our own without any wall at all.

She last was seen at the Butler campus house at 1 Monday afternoon. Last year the girl was taken with her parents on the Columbia Club cruise to South America, missing a month of school work.

Leaders Elated by Victory in Fight on Debenture. BY PAUL R. MALLON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 20.— Unless the Democrats filibuster against the tariff bill, it appeared likely today that measure may be passed by con gress within the next two weeks and sent to the White House for signa ture. The administration showed late Monday it had enough senate votes to pass the measure when it de feated a Democratic-Independent Republican coalition move to insist upon the debenture plan of farm re lief and repeal of the flexible provi sion. Four Democrats who suffered a change of heart since the votes were taken on these two propositions last October, together with Vice-Presi dent Curtis, who broke a tie, gave victory to the administration Repub licans. The vote against the deben ture was 43 to 41 and against the flexible repeal, 43 to 42. Demand Envoys Quit / There was no indication today as to whether anything would be done about the demand of Senator Shortridge (Rep., Cal.) In the course of the tariff debate, that President Hoover have Marc Peter, Swiss minister, recalled because of a speech he made about the tariff. In the same senate debate, Re publican Floor Leader Watson pointed out that the Spanish am bassador also had made a speech criticising the tariff bill. Elated by their unexpected vic tory, Republican leaders called for another conference with members of the house at 2 p. n& today. Then final work on the bill will be under taken. It is almost a foregone conclusion that the debenture will be elimi nated and the flexible clause com promised. Virtually other provisions already have been compromised. Democrats Change Front The four Democrats who changed front and supported the adminis tration were Dill of Washington, Fletcher and Trammell of Florida, ar.d Broussard of Louisiana—all of whom vitally are interested in local rates in the bill. Dill Is interested in lumber, Fletcher and Trammell in vegetables, and Broussard in sugar. In the face of temporary defeat, the coalitionists indicated they have not given up. It is doubtful however, in view of the new lineujx whether a determined stand can be made against the compromise form of the bill unless they filibuster. Senator Harrison (Dem., Miss.) has announced that when the com promise form of the measure i brought before the senate again tor passage “it will take a long, long time.” If a sufficient number of his followers join him, the bill could be held up indefinitely. However, some of the Democrats now believe the best political strat egy dictates a different course. They feel it would strengthen their party if the Republicans pass their bill. That President Hoover would sign such a compromise as now is in prospect has .been accepted as an undisputed probability by the house and senate leaders.
