STATE CHIEFS RETURN HOME ' EMPTY HANDED McNutt and Peters Make Fruitless Patronage and Bank Pleas. By WALKER STONE. lime* Special W ritrr WASHINGTON. April 5. Gov. Paul V. McNutt and R. Earl Peters. Democratic state chairman, came to Washington last week. Governor McNutt came o help untangle In diana's complex and distressing banking difficulties. Chairman Peters came to help un ravel the red tape that is preventing “deserving Indiana Democrats" from securing federal jobs. Both McNutt and Peters left for home Tuesday night, empty-handed. McNutt left the banking problems in the hands of Will Thompson. In dianapolis attorney for the Flctcher- Amcrican, who is here continuing the seemingly endless round of con ferences with federal reserve and Reconstruction Finance Corpora tion officials. Up to YanNuys. Peters left the patronage difficul ties with Senator Frederick Van Nuys and the twelve Democratic congressmen, promising to come back a week or so hence and help try to herd into line Postmaster General James A. Farley, patronage dispenser for the Roosevelt admin istration. The net result of Peters’ patron age visit was zero. Peters was the guest of honor at a luncheon for the Indiana congressional delega tion given by Representative William H. Larrabee. Flowery speeches were made. The congressmen said they wanted to “co-operate" with the state Demo cratic committee and the county committees wanted to co-operate with the congressional delegation. Pleasantries aplenty, but no com mitments, passed over the festive board. Given Postmaster Pledge Peters, however, did half-way promise that the state committee would not try to interfere with ap pointment of postmasters, a patron age preogative of which the con gressmen are very jealous. Peters hinted, however, that it would be a good idea for the con gressmen to “go along” with the Roosevelt administration program. The biggest thing that came out of the McNutt visit was a two-hour conference the Governor had with President Roosevelt. The meeting, arranged by Senator Van Nuys, touched all subjects and covered none. The Governor and the President reached a mutual understanding that, so far as Indiana is concerned, the federal and the state govern ments will co-operate to bring about economic rehabilitation.

BY YV. R. BEATTIE Bureau of Plant Industry. 1). S. Ilepart ment of Agriculture. FARM gardens are plowed, har rowed and cultivated almost entirely by means of the regular farm tools used for growing the or dinary farm crops, but small gar dens and back-yard gardens usually are worked with hand tools. Sometimes the owner of a small garden will have the ground plowed and harrowed and then do the re mainder of the work with hand tools. Very small gardens usually are spaded by hand and worked entirely by hand. One thing to remember when spading or plowing a garden is to loosen the soil as deep as the good soil extends. In fact, it often pays to break up the subsoil, but piactically none of the subsoil should be turned up or mixed with the surface soil. Deeper Cultivation Belter Asa general rule, the deeper the soil is worked the better the crops will withstand both drought and excessive moisture. Deep prepara tion improves drainage during wet seasons and aids in the retention of moisture during dry periods. Roots of plants are found where the supply of moisture and plant food are found. If the supply of moisture is well distributed or deep, you will find the roots well dis tributed or going deep into the soil, but if the layer of soil is shallow, your plants w!il be shallow rooted, and will suffer for moisture in dry periods. Simple and inexpensive tools are all that arc required for the culti vation of a home garden. In the small garden, rows can be made somewhat closer than on farms and the cultivating can be done with a push hoe with a wheel in front. A pair of light plow handles and an old bicycle wheel with a rub ber tire on it makes an excellent plow stock on which several styles of homemade soil-working attach ments can be used. Few Tools Needed For the small garden, a spade or spading fork, a steel rake, a hoe. and a planting trowel are the only tools required. It pays to get good! tools and keep them bright and Judge Weds Couple, and Frees Them From Cells Ceremony Brings Dismissal of Charges Against Pair Arrested in Hotel. Relenting, the law today released Harry Lynn Peterson, 31, an avi ator. and Miss B?tty Jane Gray, 18. both of Cleveland, 0.. after they were married by Municipal Judge William H. Sheaffer in his office. The couple was arrested several days ago together m a downtown '-.rtcl. When they appeared Tuesday in S' '\!T w's court they expressed a willingness to wed. and it was agreed that a marriage ceremony would bring dismissal of charges against them. Through most of Tuesday they waited for replies to frantic pleas for money which Peterson wired to various persons. Today he received Sls from a source he refused to reveal. Overnight, the couple remained in jail. They were brought into court this morning, and after a short wait, were taken to the office of the county clerk by John Petit, bailiff, and obtained a marriage license.

Garden crops that require con siderable space like tomatoes, peas, and pole beans may often be grown trained to stakes, strings, or to trellises so as to save space. Pole lima beans, for example, sometimes can be planted along side a division fence and trained on the fence. Tomatoes can be planted twenty four inches apart each direction and pruned to a single stem and tied to stakes, instead of setting them three by four feet and letting the vines lie on the ground. Poultry netting about thirty inches wide and fastened to stakes makes the best kind of a support for peas, and when the peas stop bearing the netting can be taken down, rolled up and s;ored so that it will last many years. Cucumbers and melons may be trained to wire netting fastened to the sunny side of the garage. One gardener had a great many stones in his garden and he piled the stones in piles about three feet in height, planted cucumbers around the base of each stone pile and trained the encumber vines over the piles of stone. Where bean poles cannot be ob tained, a trellis made of strips of wood and strings for the beans to climb on will serve the purpose.

Judge Williams Refuses to Enjoin Board’s Acts ‘in Advance.’ Right of Marion county com missioners to determine boundaries : between Perry and Decatur town ships. was upheld by Superior Judge Joseph R. William this af ternoon. The ruling followed several weeks of legal battle with each township seeking victory to obtain a $5,000,- i 000 parcel of utility property for: taxation. Inability of the court to enjoin commissioners’ acts “in advance” was the basis of Williams' ruling in dissolving a restraining order ob tained by Decatur township against the commissioners. The ruling also denied peition for a permanent injunction against the commissioners, asked by John Rou ton, Decatur township trustee. Fight over the township boun daries began w r hen petition was pre sented to the commissioners by Perry township residents seeking to include property of the Indianapolis Power and Light Company, ap praised at $5,000,000, within Perry township limits by changing the boundary line. In his ruling, Wililams cited the 1919 state law regarding boundary changes, in which the power is vested in the commissioners, who may act upon petition.

Occasionally, in teams-of-four matches you will find a board where both pairs of a team are plus—that is, the North and South pair will make a plus score as well as their East and West partners. However, to find both pairs making a doubled contract is rather rare. The biggest swing of the tourna ment took place in the following hand, which was played by Richard Frey, who was holding the North cards. His partner. David Burn stine. was in the South.

But here, Mr. Frey found him- ! self with two six-card suits, which he thought would justify a third ! hand psychic bid of one heart. East j doubled to show three and one-half tricks. Mr. Burnstine in the South passed, and West bid one spade in response to his partner's double. Mr. Frey felt that East and West had a game, due to the fact that his partner had made no attempt on two occasions to enter the bid ding. Therefore, he decided to show his second suit, and bid two clubs, which East promptly doubled.

Mr. Frey took the finesse, discard ing the king of diamonds. A small club was led, East wan ning with the jack. East returned a small diamond, which Mr. Frey trumped with a small heart. The king of clubs then was played, East played the ace, and Mr. Frey trumped in dummy with the five of hearts. The ten of hearts was played from dummy, West winning with the king and returning a small diamond, which Mr. Frey trumped in his own hand. Mr. Frey then played his jack of hearts, picking up West's last trump. He led his nine of clubs, which East won with the queen. Mr. Frfey now spread his hand for the remaining tricks, as he had the good trump and all good clubs. NEW WITNESS TO AID MOONEY Rancher Bobs Up as Man Who Saw Bombing in 1916.
