NRA Brings Big Increase in Pag for Steel Chiefs Profit Handsomely Under Provision of New In dustry Code. By Scrippa-Hntcard Xticspaper Alliance NEW YORK, Sept. 12.—Wage States Steel Corporation and other leaders of the industry after the NRA code became effective Aug. 10, extended not only to mill laborers but to high-salaried executives as well, it was learned today. Although a 15 per cent increase was given day laborers to restore or increase their purchasing power, the executives, wftose purchasing power remained at a maximum de spite their salary cuts, profited handsomely as a result of the steel code. This bill for increased wages has added more than $2,000,000 to the average monthly pay roll of the cor- poration, despits constantly decreas ing production from a peak of 63 per cent recorded this week. What percentage of the increased wage bill is represented in the raises given executives can not bs estimated, but it has been definitely stated that their wages were boost ed from 12 Ms to 20 per cent, thus restoring, on an average, better than half of the cuts effected on this class during the depression. In effect, the new steel code in creased the wages of the average mill worker 50 to 60 cents a day, while the heads of the industry, already drawing salaries reputed to range higher than SIOO,OOO a year, have had amounts ranging possibly as high as $20,000 added to their pay checks. A similar practice has been fol lowed by certain other companies in the industry, it is said, and for the group as a whole the operation of the code represents an increase of approximately $5,000,000 in monthly pay rolls. INDUSTRIAL INSURANCE SHOWS GAIN IN CITY 49 Pey Cent Increase in Ten Weeks Viewed Prosperity Barometer. Revealing that in the last ten weeks, purchase of industrial insur ance from one company by the working people of Indianapolis has increased 49.3 per cent over the same ten-week period a year ago, E. W. Craig, insurance man, Monday predicted "better times” ahead. “The evidence indicates the blue eagle has taken perch in Indian apolis and is showing people the way to a job,” said Craig. “Indianapolis also has enjoyed a reduction in premium lapses indicating increased ability of people to hold their life insurance. Craig declared that the rise and fall of industrial insurance is one of the most accurate barometers of em ployment. GAS RATE DROP HALTED Court Restrains State Board From Enforcing South Bend Order.

M’KENNEY, Secretary American Bridge league YOU undoubtedly know many players who are afflicted with “No-Trump-Itis.” They try to play every hand at no trump. Generally, you will And that they are very good card players and, due to the boldness of their bidding, they very often steal a game from you. Such was the hand that came up at a recent tournament in Read ing, Pa. South was the dealer and passed, as did West. North and South were playing the constructive one oyer one system, and North opened with a b ; d of one diamond. East, who was one of those affected in the manner described above, went to three no-trump, which South doubled. South opened the five of dia monds, North played the nine, and East refused to win the trick. North came back with the king of diamonds and East was forced to win with the ace, but this exhausted South’s diamonds. The only chance the declarer had to make his contract was to find both the ace and king of clubs in the South hand and for South to make a mistake. East played the queen of clubs, which South won with the king. st tt n WHAT would you now lead if you were in the South posi tion? There is no double but that the declarer has the heart suit solid and that he holds the ace of spades. You know that one more lead of clubs is going to establish that suit. NAZIS PLEDGED TO RECOGNIZE JEWISHRIGHTS Citizenship Privileges Are Acknowledged in Pact" With Holy See. BY THOMAS B. MORGAN United Press Staff Correspondent VATICAN CITY, Sept. 12.—Nazi Germany is pledged to admit Cath olic Jews to full rights of citizen ship under terms of a memorandum from the Holy See, accompanying the recent concordat with Berlin, it was revealed Monday. The memorandum especially was insistent that equal treatment be accorded baptized Jews, despite the anti-Jewish campaign of Chancellor Adolf Hitler's administration in Germany. It objected vehemently against their discrimination on the grounds of race. The Holy See further insisted bap tized Jews were Christians, and that “any offense against baptized Jews is an offense against the holy sacraments.” The memorandum added that non- Christian Jews must be treated hu manly, in accordance “with Chris tian charity.” * The Vatican at first insisted that the memorandum be inserted as a codicil to the concordant, but the German government replied it was not acceptable and was an offense to the sovereign honor of the state. Delay in ratifying the concordat followed, until Berlin formally undertook to respect the concor dat word for word and the terms of the memorandum. The concordat was ratified form ally Monday, the Holy See an nounced, Cardinal Pacelli, papal secretary of state, and the German charge d’affaires exchanging ratifi cations.

If this is done, however. South will make his contract because he will play a small spade from dummy and now, if North plays the queen, he can win with the ace and still has the spade suit stopped with the jack in dummy. South realized that his only chance to defeat the contract was to find his partner with the queen of spades, so he slopped down the king of spades. The declarer re fused to win the first trick, but when the ten of spades was con tinued East was forced to win the next trick with the ace of spades. Now all that East can do is to run his four heart tricks, as North is bound to make three diamonds and the queen of spades, setting the contract three tricks. (Copyright. 1933. by NEA Service. Inc.)

Distribution of state funds to school units will make possible drastic reductions in 1934 property tax levies, it was predicted by Gov ernor Paul V. McNutt today. He based his prediction on letters received from county auditors, he said. “The people of Indiana must re j u'h Troubled with Dandruff sor v Several Years. Cuticura Healed. “I had been troubled with dandruff for several years. My scalp itched and burned and I used to scratch until it bled. My hair was dry and lifeless and it fell out until I was getting a bald spot. The scales used to be on all my clothes. “A friend advised Cuticura Soap and Ointment. I massaged my scalp with Cuticura Ointment at night and the next morning shampooed with Cuticura Soap.

They will take millions 'of dollars from the shoulders of the property taxpayers, more tha $17,500,000 nos it within a very short time. But the whole burden has not been shifted. Property taxes remain the principal source of governmental revenues in Indiana and our present duty is to keep these levies as low as is consistent with good govern ment.” Ignorant of its poisonous nature, womeen cl ancient times used lead carbonate as a cosmetic, as the con- I tents of toilet boxes show.
