COSTIGAN SLAPS PENNY-PINCHING RELIEF STEPS Opens Hearings on Measure Asking $500,000,000 for Poor Aid. /,’ / f nih J J'rr * t WASHINGTON. Jan. 3. Senator Edward P. Costigan iDem., Colo.t today began the drive for further federal relief activities with a p;r for the abandonment of ‘penny pinching’’ relief compromises on the part of the nation's industrial and political leaders. Presiding at a hearing of the sen ate manufacturers' committee on (he $500,000,000 relief bill sponsored by himself and Senator Robert M. La Follette Jr. 'Rep., Wis.j, Costi gan expressed the hope the hear ings would eause congress to enact adequate emergency relief and arouse public opinion to a ‘'more articulate" support. The legislation would put an end to Reconstruction Finance Corpora tion distribution of relief money. Would Create Board Instead it would create a federal emergency board composed of two members from each party appointed by the President, and with the chief of the children’s bureau acting as executive officer. The board would receive per diem payments only. Costigan and La Follette provide that $500,000,000 shall be provided to meet relief needs, not as loans but as direct federal aid. They would obtain this money by sale of tax-exempt 4 per cent bonds in small denominations, offered first as a popular loan similar to those of war days. The first duty of the proposed board would be apportionment of 40 per cent of this money among the states on the basis of popula tion. As fast as states applied for aid, the amount of this allotment would be made available, provided it was not more than two-thirds the amount raised by the. state itself through public and private agencies. Drafts Sales Tax Bill Whenever these amounts of money are not enough to meet relief needs in any state The board is directed to apportion funds from the 60 per cent, reserve, provided it is satisfied “that the state or its political sub divisions have made reasonable ef forts within their resources to pro vide for emergency relief expendi tures.'’ A bill designed to “put 2,000,000 men back to work” through public construction financed by a 1 per cent tax on all sales was prepared for introduction in the house today by Representative Kent E. Keller (Dem., 111.). Keller’s measure also provides for reorganization of federal public works activities, and the issuance of $1,000,000,000 in new currency. NEW YEAR'S TAKES 200 VIOLENT DEATHS Half of Fatalities Are Due to Automobiles.

Science puts the rights of organized society above the rights of individuals. 1. Yes, because the relation ship is a profoundly different one although to forgive does not always mean to condone or justify. A fault in a woman’s husband affects her whole life much more than one in her father. And it is much more her duty to counsel with and for give an erring husband than an erring father. A mother often rightly feels she must forgive an erring husband in the larger interests of the fam ily and community, even though the children would not forgive. 2.

BY WALTER D. HICKMAN THERE are two outstanding joys in entertainment on this week's Lyric bill. They are Singer’s Midgets in a revue that has as much class as a Ziegfeld revue, and Ilse Marvenga, former prima donna of “The Student Prince," and “Naughty Marietta.” I he problem that Miss Marvenga has to face is a much more serious one than the midgets. These little people naturally attract thousands of .children to the theater. The appeal of the singing of Miss Marvenga is strictly adult because her songs include surh worthwhile numbers as “Two Hearts in Waltz Time,” “Deep in My Heart.” as well as a number from “Naughty Marietta.” This singer has the grand manners of a prima donna. She knows how to sing, to put over the story and above all she knows how to walk as well as use her hands. And she has selected her program in fine taste and under standing. it would be unfair to this fine artist not to record the fact that she is one of the two contributing fac tors to the suc cess of this bill. From the standpoint of in d i vidual talent, Singer's Midgets have never been Hh! li ; life i George O'Brien surpassed by any other similar or ganization. The costumes for these little people in the wedding num ber. the penguin novelty and the striking hunt scene are as elaborate and as beautiful as one would ex pect and demand in an important Broadway revue. One of the big punch nets is when one of the midgets puts three well trained elephants (trained along human lines), through then paces. I really wanted to get up and shout because the act is such fine showmanship. It is safe to say that Singer's Midgets is one of the biggest and most elaborate acts on the variety stage today. It is a wonderful buy. One thing that I noticed yester day afternoon when I was present -the large number of mothers and fathers who took all their children with them. That is wonderful. Stanton and Delores open the NEW PLAN FOR HOG BOUNTY BEING DRAFTED Corn Also Will Be Included Under Scheme Proposed in House. By fcripp'-Hotrani Xetc?paper JLUinncc WASHINGTON, Jan. 2.-A new scheme for paying a bounty to hog raisers and co”n growers is being worked out by leaders in the house agriculture committee in their study of the domestic allotment plan of farm relief. This development was brought about, it is understood, when com mittee leaders came to the conclu sion that no farm plan could be passed in the house unless hogs and corn were included. After hearings were concluded just before the Christmas recess, it was indicated that only wheat and cotton would be involved in the bounty plan, but since then political considerations have changed the outlook. Chairman Marvin Jones iDeni., Tex.i, of the agriculture committee will not discuss the details of the new plan, except to say that the bounty, or excise tax on processing, will be the difference between cur rent market prices and a fair ex change value computed on the basis of pre-war farm prices. of these qualities, our estimate is quite as likely to be raised as it is to be lowered. 1. It all depends upon cur fairness and the person’s real qualities. This proverb, alas, is invoked, more often than not, by those jealous of a su perior person. 3. Yes. Scientfic experiment has shown that the quality and condition of the air has no effect on the quality of think ing. What it affects is the in dividual’s natural desire for comfort. If by the exercise of will, the worker disregards the condi tions under which he works, the quality of his thinking will be unimpaired. This fact, however, is no in dorsement of bad air, for after all, comfort is important and does have a bearing on en durance. bill with an athletic offering.

Contract Bridge BY W . E. M’KENNEY Secretary American Bridge League RETURNING from the national tournament at New York, we stopped off at Buffalo, N. Y„ to arrange for the central New York state tournament, and the follow ing interesting hand came up in a rubber game at the Buffalo Ath letic Club. Major D. J. Cadotte, in the fol lowig hand, was dealt four deuces. There is no question that four deuces have a definite value in cer tain games, but bridge players usu ally consider them insignificant and detrimental, rather than of value to the hand. However, Major Cadotte certainly made use of his deuces to convey definite information to his partner which enabled him to defeat the declarer’s contract. ¥7-5 A7-6-4-3 ♦ A-Q-J-7 AK-Q-10 A 6-2 1 MnSTM~I AQ - J * 9 - V A-Q-J- NORTH 4 9-2 h- r- ¥K ♦ 10-5-2 [3 & ♦ K-6-4- *4-3-2 5 H 3 Denier fcJ-8-6- south| 5 A A-K.-10-8-3 VlO-8-5 ♦ 9-8 AA-9-7 (29) The Bidding South was the dealer and elect ed to pass. You might say that this is a very fine hand with which to pass, but the hand really does not have any future unless partner can put in a bid. However, it is a question—person ally. I would prefer to pass with the South hand, especially first hand. West passed and North opened with one diamond—remember that third hand is entitled to make a weak opening in the one over one system.

The women of the Oak Hill Club met at 2:30 this afternoon, brought i lists of things which they needed dene in their homes. In this way they hope to exenange odd jobs and promote a program of helping each other through the club meet ings. Today’s meeting was a sew ing session, with members bringing articles of clothing needing mend ing, and exchanging sewing experi ence and advice. Another club taking up the idea of the exchange of odd jobs is the Olympic Club, which meets tonight ; at East Riverside drive and Pruitt street for the first time. The club will build up an exchange of odd | jobs, work out a system of listing work and also the names of per sons who can pay for work in food and clothing. Officers of the new club are: President, Herman Olsen; vice president, Albert Dowden; secre i tary, Frank Heuser, and treasurer, Arthur Brattain. The entertainment committee h 4- as its chairman Harold Percifiel.% with Lonnie Heightchew and. Frank j Heuser as assisting members. An organization meeting will be j held tonight in the community j room of the Olive Branch Christian church for anew club which will hold its first regular meeting next week. The Prospect-Sherman Drive Club, wheih meets at 3402 Prospect street, will have its program Wednesday night, instead of to night, as had been planned previ ously. The program will include a solo | by Francis Croudus, accompanied by Mrs. Ward Taylor on the piano; piano numbers by Robert. Hoffmeyer and Claude Tolliver; a jumping ex hibition by Cecil Burn, and a quar tet under the direction of Lewellyn Booker. Following the program and short business meeting the Prospect- Sherman Civic Club will hold its regular business meeting. A check-up of the results of the i Leisure Hour movement to date | shows twenty-five clubs offering free j weekly programs, with ten more j centers in prospect for January. 1 Two clubs now are open for every , day use. and six more of this na ture are being organized. The week ly attendance at the clubs is about eight thousand, with 2,500 in at tendance at neighborhood picture shows, under sponsorship of the movement. The School 34 club, which was formed Nov. 11. reports an attend ance of 3,600 people since its begin ning. More than 75 per cent of these are adults, according to the club reports. This organization will hold a : spelling bee Friday night, at which time five spellers will be chosen to l appear in the final spelling match. East passed and South bid one spade—a 'one over one. North then signed the hand off by bidding one no trump, but South elected to make a further try on the hand and bid two spades. This might be termed as a sign off bid, but in view of the fact that partner had opened third hand, and now has signed the hand off with a no trump, this bid of two spades is constructive in nature. Spades was the only suit that North could not play the hand at, so he elected to bid two no trump, and now South made a very fine pass. East opened his fourth best club —the five—and declarer won the trick with the ten, Major Cadotte in the West dropped his first deuce —the deuce of clubs. Declarer then played a small spade, finessing the ten spot, and Major Cadotte's second deuce fell. a a a THE declarer could see that a second finesse in spades would not help him—that his only chance was to try to drop the spades—so he led the ace and king of spades. On the second of these two cards Major Cadotte dropped his third deuce—the diamond deuce. The de clarer led another spade from dum my refusing at this time to take the diamond finesse. Would you now make the mis take of signaling with a heart? If so, you would not defeat the de clarer's contract. Remember that Major Cadotte is playing against a two no trump contract. He played the three of clubs. His discards new have advised part ner definitely that when he gets in again, he must lead a heart. Declarer dropped the seven of diamonds. East won the trick with the queen of spades, and then led his sir.gletcn king of hearts, which Major Cadotte was careful to over take with the ace. He then ran off five heart tricks, which, with his partner's one spade trick, were sufficient to defeat the declarer's contract ore trick. So you see that deuces, at times, play just as important a pan in the hand as aces and kings. (Copyright, 1932, Service, Inc.' Tr, Mark K<r. V m G. S. PL 06.

RESTS IN KOKOMO LEGION LIQUOR TRIAL Hotel Manager Only One to Face Federal Court Here Today. With three members of the Amer ican Legion sitting as jurors. Ernest Davis, manager of a Kokomo hotel, is on trial today in federal court on charges of conspiracy growing out i of alleged liquor law violations dur ] ing the legion state convention last | summer. The government rested its : case at noon. Davis is charged with conspiring j with Roy King of Kokomo and John | Roach of Delphi, and legion officials j to maintain a barroom in one of the i rooms during the convention. Roach pleaded guilty to the charge today, but trial of King was | delayed because he suffered mjur | les in an auto crash recently. Herman Albrecht of Kokomo, legionnaire in charge of hotel ar rangements for the convention, testified King and Roach came to his home prior to the event with information as to where stock for the alleged bar could be obtained. Albrecht. Rochford D. Robbins, Kokomo legionnaire, and James Fardudo of Indianapolis pleaded guilty to similar charges when ar raigned before Judge Robert C. Baltzell recently. Attorneys for Davis sought to show that Davis actively ceased management of the hotel a week before the convention when the concern was placed in hands of a receiver. Federal agents raided the place July 30, confiscating 872 pints of beer and fifty-eight pints of whisky. Chemists today testified the beer was 5.3 alcoholic content. EVANGELIST TO TALK ON RUSSIA Missionary Work Among Soviets to Be Told at Parley. The Rev. Peter Deyneka, repre sentative of the Christian Evange listic churches of White Russia, Poland, will present his work in maintaining missionaries in Soviet Russia tonight, at the meeting of the Interdenominational Evangelis tic Association at Cadle tabernacle. Mr. Deyneka is associated with Paul Rader of Chicago, president of the World-Wide Christian Courier. He will show slides of evangelistic meetings he held along the Bol shevist border in Russia, where people walked more than 100 miles to attend. Deyneka is opposed to recognition of the present Russian government by the United States. "The United States must not recognize Russia until Russia recog nizes God,” he says. Lou Hill, described as a reformed gangster, also will speak at to night's meeting. ‘PULPIT BUNK’ FLAILED BY INDIANA MINISTER Emotional Preaching Needed, Clergymen Told at Retreat Here. “Pulpit bunk” must be eliminated and there must be a revival of emotional preaching as opposed to the current “poker face” variety, the Rev. A. E. Cory, director of the Disciples of Christ pension fund, declared Monday night at the mid winter retreat of the Indiana Minis terial Association at the Central Christian church. “We have preached the present so much it has crumbled about us —now is the time to preach the eternal,” Mr. Cory warned. The session will close tonight with addresses by the Rev. E. R. Moon and the Rev. E. W. Cole. T aste These Sweet, Tender CORN KERNELS THEY TELL ME Old Feud —New Angle N r O matter how you look at it. 1 R. Earl Peters. Democratic j state chairman, directed his attack on bureaucracy at Frank Mayr Jr.. | secretary of state, when he made the Wilson day address at Win chester last week. It was the multiplicity of depart ments under Mayr which Peters be rated as uneconomical and un-' democratic, and in the .speech the chairman revealed that he can’t for- 1 give the secretary for permitting the ! patronage of the office to be used in the attempt to defeat him for re election as party chief last May. It rankles Earl that the secretary quite evidently has ignored his pro- , tests against retention of James Car penter. superintendent of the auto mobile license department and lead er in the fight last spring. Declaring that large economies in governmental expenditures can be achieved by shifting divisions, Pe ters. they tell me. would have the next legislature abolish the automo bile license department with its scores of clerks and distributing qgencies and delegate that task to the county assessors. tt a a It is proposed by some that the counties keep the proceeds from sales of tags, which would be placed in the general fund and thus aid in reducing local taxes. This also would mean reduction in revenue of the state highway department. The plaas also suggest that the state police be taken from Mayr and combined in a separate department of public safety with the'Criminal identification division and the state fire marshal's department. A spe cial board composed of incumbent state officials would administer this new department through a director appointed by them. To complete emasculation of the secretary of state's department, the securities division, which admin isters the blue sky law, would be come a part of the office of the at torney-general. This would leave the secretary of state with one division only, the corporations department, which re ceives and files reports of corpora tions. a a a Whether this would be more eco nomical ois net clear, inasmuch as only one department will be abol ished under this plan and all will be continued in various guises so that the fixed charges necessarily will exist as always. If the departments were abolished entirely, then, and then only, would come a savings. There is another side to this pic ture and anew angle to the feud — and that is political. Peters, they tell me, is pointing toward the nomination for United States senator in 1934. Quite obviously, then, he would not like to see so large a lump of patronage in the hands of Mayr and his advisors, whom he regards as open enemies. With so much patronage they would be able to obtain many dele gates pledged against his ambition.

Hit J nitrtt Pre WWASHINGTON. Jan. 3 Presi dent Herbert Hoover today de nounced rising Democratic opposi tion to his plans for reorganization of governmental activities, and called on congress to keep its hands off now” or give to his successor "much larger powers of independent action." President Hoover made his attack on the Democratic opposition at a noon press conference, held after his return from his Florida fishing trip. It was his first press confer ence since Sept. 13. "Either congress must keep its hands off now or they must give to my successor much larger power of independent action than given to any President if there is ever to be reorganization," the President said. “And that authority to be effec tive should be free of the limitations in the law passed last year, which gives congress the veto power.” The President charged that un less the changes he recommended were enforced all efforts at reor ganization of the government would "again be merely make-believe."
