350 Leaders Open Drive
Against Coffin
Reorganization of the Republican
Party in Marion County to break
the rule of George V. Coffin was

ers, including business and profes
sional leaders.
Howard M. Meyer, chairman of

tunity to learn which precinct com
mitteeman candidates are favorable
to the reorganization program,” he
“We are prepared for a vigorous
campaign to restore the leadership
of the Republican Party to those
in whom the public will have com

Nov. 4 May Find Rush County With
State’s Youngest, Prettiest Auditor
Feminine Deputy Files; Is
Only Democratic
Rush County may have the
youngest, piettiest, county auditor
in Indiana after Nov. 4.
Prettiest? Yes! prettiest—for Miss
Fern E. Jordan, 22, present chief
deputy auditor, has filed es the only
candidate on the Demociatic ticket
for county auditor, ana five men
are running for the same job on the
Republican ticket.
Miss Jordan doesn't believe in
counting votes before they are cast
any more than adage-makers do in
counting chickens, but she says
that if every one who says he’ll vote
for her will do so, she’s sure to win.

Mr. Stiers is the only elective of

Miss Jordan is modest about her
knowledge of tax rate making.
Knowing more about poor relief
bonds than lipstick brands, she is
reluctant to talk about her work.
“But I do get along well with

Inquiry Into Pension Idea of
Chiropodist to Follow
OARP Check.
Times Special Writer
WASHINGTON, March 30.—The
'Pope plan” for pensioning all
Americans at 55, and increasing the
pensions as they grow older, is
scheduled to follow the Townsend
plan before the Bell Committee’s
Fathered by “Dr.” J. E. Pope, a
Tulsa chiropodist, who in the past
has promoted various schemes, this
plan has been operating throughout
the South and Southwest with suc
cess second only to that of the
Townsend plan. It has been win
ning thousands of supporters among
the Negroes and whites of Okla
homa, Arkansas, Texas, Missouri and
Illinois, and word comes from the
deep South that organizers are
barnstorming the cotton belt in
large numbers.
“Dr.” Pope was first to see gold
“in them thar hills.” He began pro
moting his scheme a full year ahead
of Dr. F. E. Townsend.
A Virginian, he moved to Arkan
sas, then to Texas, then to Okla
homa. In the spring of 1932 he
launched his “National Old-Age
Pension Association.”
Sells Eight-Page Tabloid
His method is not to organize
clubs or collect dues from members.
He prints and sells an oi'ht-page
tabloid called The National Forum
and Federal Old Age Pension Ad

cash, not stamps—and the two-bit
pieces come tumbling in. “Dr.” Pope
claims a circulation of 100,000, but

income or worth.” No mention is
made of how the money is to be
“Dr.” Pope is sleek -and middle
aged, and has a sanctimonious air.
About two years ago Rep. Wright
Patman (D., Tex.) told “Dr.” Pope’s
life story on the floor of the House.
He said that during a quarter cen
tury Pope had been arrested and
convicted twice, and another time
indicted, for misuse of the mails and
frauds of various kinds.
Sent to Leavenworth
He was convicted in 1904 at Hous
ton, Tex., and sent to Leavenworth
for 18 months. In 1923 he was ar
j rested at Fort Worth and pleaded
; suilty to misuse of the mails in an
oil swindle, served 60 days and paid
a SSOO fine. In 1927 he was arrested
in Denver and indicted for a stock
selling scheme, “taking in over $lO,-
“The indictment,” added Rep.
Patman, “was dismissed because
