Russells Point, the Cincinnati & Lake
Erie Railroad is offering an excep
tionally low one-day excursion from
Hamilton, June 9, of $1.60 round trip
Extra train will leave Hamilton at
8:20 a.m., Sunday morning, returning
from Russells Point at 4:10 p. m. and

of a number of famous bands and
orchestras to play in the dance pavil

claims the largest Memorial Day since
1929—10,000 having visited the dance
hall. This excursion is the first of a

Employer Bill Passes Both
Columbus (Special) Labor was
given great aid in the closing hours
of the Ohio legislature when its
friends from Hamilton section gave
the Ohio state employes' retirement
system bill support, which resulted
in its passing the house 94 to 26. It
was sent at once to the senate, which
had previously passed it by over
whelming vote, and which nov con
curred the light amendments.
The amendments were asked by the
proponents of the bill which is des
tined to give state employes the same
support in their old age as the state
teachers' retirement system does. It
was introduced early in the session
by Senator William H. Herner, of
Norwalk, and State Representative
Charles S. Best, of Columbus. The
bills had no trouble in the senate,
but was delayed many weeks in th
house after being recommended bj

Condemns Hitler's Cruel
Washington, D. O. (ILNTS)—Opin

relations between the United States
and Germany might be justified by
the persecution of Jews by the Hitler
dictatorship was expressed by Sena

address to the Southeastern regional
convention of the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations in America.
Senator King praised orthodox
Jewry for its steadfastness in trial
and suffering, attacked Germany for
what he termed its reversion to the
"bigotry of the Middle Ages,' and de
clared that the policies of the Ilitlei
regime were "inconceivable in thin

Old Sam's Advice
By E. L. GILL
0, MoClure Newspaper Syndlcat*.
HE caught Bill Holland's
Blooming there so wliitely in
the stagnant waters of the swamp.
He grasped Old Sam Matthias by the
shoulder and pointed it out. Old Sam
grunted in noncommittal fashion.
Young Bill had not been a cheerful
companion to Old Sam on this last
trip and Old Sam was showing his dis
appointment. Young Bill, for his part,
was both definitely disappointed and
irritated with Old Sam. He had come
to the mountain shack of the old
guide, seeking sympathy and help in
the major crisis of his twenty-two
years. But Old Sam was bored. Count
less times before the boy had taken
his problems to the unlettered, weather
beaten old guide in the hills, and al
ways before Old Sam had set him
The old man's attitude deepened
Bill's resentment toward the world in
general—and Betty In particular. The
entire trouble, of course, was Betty.
It was an ancient story that Bill told
Old Sam—a story of the magnificent
Jove of a boy for a girl the boy im
bued with the Idealism of the age of
chivalry hopelessly, fantastically In
love with a fascinating bit of a girl sud
denly irked by the restraint of old
fashioned standards and "out to find
what life is all about."
It was not, Bill often told himself,
that he had any desire whatever for
the young lady's affection any longer,
The maddening thing wag that he
couldn't rid his heart and mind and
soul of her.
"I wouldn't know what to say to that,
son," Old Sam condescended once or
twice during the day. Nothing more.
And when night had settled and they
sat on the porch of the mountain shack,
Old Sam talked of trout.
"I'm going to bed,'* the youth said.
"Got a little somethln' I'd might like
to do tonight, been a thlnkin' of that
flower we saw back there in the swamp
today. Somethin' sort of queer about
that. Don't hanker much for sleep
myself and have a mind to take the
lantern and have a look. Better come
along, you'll sleep the better for it.
The old man's suggestion sounded
silly to the distracted youngster, who
nevertheless consented, grudgingly.
The swamp was little more than a
ten minute walk, along the trail. Old
Sam, boots drawn to his hips, led the
way, carrying the lantern. The youth
followed, flashlight in hand. At the
edge of the water they stopped and
at Old Sam's direction, Bill searched
the surface of the swamp until the flash
light caught the white flower.
"I'm a bit curious about that flower
Bill I'm a-goln' to get it out and take
It back to the shack looks to me like a
lily," and Old Sam started into the
swamp, sinking knee-deep in the mire.
"It's some sort of a lily, sure as you
live, son," he called back to Bill.
Back in the shack Ma Matthias
rustled an old bucket, grumbling the
while at "these consarn fool notions."
Bill was dispatched to fill the bucket
with clean rich earth and Old Sam set
to work to replant his lily, talking the
while In quiet, soothing tones, as he
might have to a sick wayfarer.
"Brave little lady—had a right tough
time of it out there in that swamp, I
"Can't figure out how you come to be
in such a vile smellin' place—mighty
bad company you was in.
"Seemed to like it right smart at that
—stubborn as an old mule about com
In' out—guess you didn't knew them
weeds was a-goin' to choke you in time
"There she is now, Ma, good as new
—and ain't she a beauty! Reckon she
feels a lot better, too—suspect if she
could talk she would be a-tellln' us that
she's mighty happy to get out of that
But Old Sam got no further with his
monologue. Young Bill Holland was
dashing out through the open doorway
of the shack.
Betty was dancing lightly from table
to table, regaling the party with a
song. Bill stood, unnoticed, watching,
He waited until Betty's solo dance
brought her close to where he stood
As she whirled, he caught her upraised
arm in a biting grip. A youth rushed
forward to resent the indignity. Bill's
flst caught the point of his chin.
The merry-makers confronted Bill
en masse at the doorway, denouncing
him in shrill outbursts. Meanwhile
Bill was delivering eloquent if dis
Jointed references to poisonous weeds
and filthy water.
Betty was a subdued young lady,
The first flush of fiery indignation
passed as quickly as it came. It may
have been an expression on Bill Hoi
land's face it may have been some
She was quite ready to go to the car
with Bill. Meekly, she allowed herself
to be led up the steps of the record
er's ho:ne. Meekly, too, aided by Bill'
gruff promptings, she answered the

ster and Bill had pocketed the docu
ment given him by the recorder, Betty
laid her head on Bill's shoulder and
women-like, cried great, warm tears,
Now, for the first time since he left
Old Sam Matthias' shack far up in the
hills, Bill's clenched jaw relaxed.
Far up in the hills Ma Matthias was
again reminding Old Sam that he had
to go to the swamp after breakfast
Ma was a practical soul and saw no
sense in paying that florist down in
town a dollar and a half for a potted
lily and then leaving the pot buried In
that dirty swamp.

President Roosevelt is supremely
confident that his recovery program
will end the depression. Therefore,
there will be no inflation during the

the soldiers' "bonus" is compi'omised,
as was predicted in this column some
weeks ago, it will be on a basis that
will not involve inflation.
Many thoughtful congressmen dis
like the word "inflation." They prefer
to say "expansion of the currency."
There is no doubt whatever but that
more money in circulation would be
beneficial to the country. The facts
are there is probably ample money
in existence, but this money is not in

Congressmen are frequently called
upon to be glorified errand boys for
their constituents. This request came
in to an Ohio congressman: A young
man married to Mollie Elizabeth
Buchanan claims that his wife is a
descendant of ex-President Buchanan

-hat the congressman enter a contest
for the balance of the estate, collect
the money and remit without delay.
Washington, D. C., June 3.—The
young lady who handles Congressman
Stephen M. Young's incoming mail has
"psychic" touch and an "X-ray

put aside more than 6000 unopened
letters. These were from every sec
tion of Ohio and were not uniform in
size or handwriting. She filed these
unopened letters in cabinets and label
ed them "Opposed to Wheeler-Ray
burn bill." Other mail was given the
right of way. Recently when the vol
ume of incoming mail slackened for
a few days these envelopes were open
ed. Of more than 6000 letters only
twelve related to other subjects. "May
my voting record and attendance be
