NEW VIOLENCE MENACES
SOVIET FARM PROGRAM
Communist Leaders Plan Big Drive
to Stop Kulaks' Activities
Against Collectives.
TIFLIS. U. S. S. R.. June 8 fJ5).—
The cotton sowing campaign in this
region has been marked by new acts
of violence and sabotage on the part of
kulaks seeking to interfere with col
lectivization by creating obstacles to
the government's agricultural program.
In the village of Karadouglu, near
here, the president of a collective farm
was murdered by unidentified individ
uals described by authorities as "kulak
damagers," who have not been appre
hended
Individual peasants, potential candi
dates for membership in collective
farms, were compelled by some of their
kulak neighbors to sow barley in 10
fields in which they had agreed to
plant cotton on contract to the govern
ment in the region of the village Agaari.
Regional leaders of the Communist
party are organizing vigorous measures
to put down such activities.
Kulak is the Soviet appellation for
the relatively well-to-do peasant, who
acquired more than the average prop
erty and equipment and sometimes em
ployed labor to cultivate his fields.

SHALE OIL PROJECT
IN AUSTRALIA FAILS
Lack of Money Is Cause of Ending
of Exploitation Near
Sydney.
By the Associated Press.
SYDNEY, Australia. — Attempts of
Australia's federal government to ex
tract payable petroleum from the great
deposits of shale at Newnes, near Syd
ney, have failed, primarily because the
government has not sufficient money
to continue with the enterprise.
For many’ years the shale fields have
been exploited with only one result—
financial failure.
The latest adventure in oil. however,
had the backing of government. Mod
ern methods of oil extraction were in
troduced and a big distributing organi
zation was created at great cost.
The result has been the same and
the works have been closed down. The
government is now trying to sell its
plant, leases and assets.
Search for oil in the northern State
of Queensland has proceeded vigorously,
but though there have been abundant
indications, results so far have been
disappointing.
To date Queensland's actual com
mercial oil production has been entirely
from natural gas, and has been from
the bores in the town of Roma.
Oil production has varied, when the
absorption plant has been working,
from 300 to 1.000 gallons of petrol per
week, at times more. The production
so far has never paid more than work
ing expenses.

Prince Georges Board Re
fuses Request of a Hyatts
ville Nursery.
BY GEORGE PORTER,
Staff Correspondent of The Star.
UPPER MARLBORO, Md., June 8.—
Reaffirming their stand against boxing
matches in Prince Georges, the County
Commissioners yesterday denied the ap
plication of the Brentwood Children’s
Nursery for permission to hold benefit
bouts.
The nursery asked permission to raise
funds through boxing bouts, pointing
out that this method had been suc
cessfully used by a nursery in Alexan
dria. Va. The request was signed by E.
W. Baker.
Howard Slater, who has not been
acting as a constable since the com
missioners requested his resignation, as
a result of the blackjacking of a news
paper photographer last December, al
though he never submitted a resig
nation, was given? a new appointment.
Constable Slater's application was in
dorsed by Chief of Police J. J. Crowley,
former Sheriff John Fink, Justice of
Peace John A. Downing and former
County Commissioner William A. Du
vall.
The commissioners took no action on
a complaint of Phillip Love of Coles
ville, who objected to being handcuffed
by Policeman Ralph Brown after being
accused of having obscured markers on
his truck. Brown said he used the
handcuffs because he had orders not to
use his blackjack. The officer released
Love after a friend had interceded in
his behalf.
E. E. Federline. 1400 block of Park
road, complained that his car was un
justifiably searched by an unidentified
policeman at Bladensburg. James 8.
Heal, clerk to the commissioners, was
Instructed to Investigate.
Dwight B. Galt of Hyattsvllle and
Turner L. Punkhouser of Mount Rainier,
