» SAVING
IN LOTTERIES SEEN
Postal Department Wages
Successful Drive to Curb
Border Entry.
Br tht Associated Press.
Hope that the current campaign
against peddlers of foreign lottery
tickets would save Americans $2,
600,000 this year was expressed today
at the Post Office Department.
"We estimate roughly that pur
chasers of these tickets forked over
$5,000,000 last sear to various lot
teries, most of them operated out of
Canada on English races," an official
Mid.
"During the last three months the
department has issued about 2,000
fraud orders denying persons be
lieved to be engaged in the business
the use of the mails."
Working with the Customs Bureau
of the Treasury, more than (250.000
worth of tickets have been seized
along the border.
"There is reason to believe that
about $3,000,000 worth of the tickets
sold last year were counterfeit and
valueless to the purchasers," it was
atated.
Boston and New York were named
as the localities in which the sales
are concentrated. 40 per cent of the
business being divided between them.
Many of the tickets are hustled into
the United States by speed boat across
Lake Erie: others are smuggled in
regular coastwise vessels. The
drive, among other things, is designed
to thwart their dispatch through the
mails.
To evade detection lottery sponsors
have been found to have issued the
following Instructions, officials said:
1. Purchasers are asked to sign their
tickets with a "nom de plume" to
avoid publicity.
2. Agents are required to make re
mittances in checks or drafts, but
"absolutely never in United States
postal or Canadian money orders."
3. Solicitors have been told to use
envelopes with fake return addresses
printed on them and to disclose their
true address on an instruction slip
that Is inclosed.
TREASURY WORKERS'
PAY PLAN DELAYED
Restoration Consideration of
1,300 Employes Put Off
Until Later in Week.
The Treasury-Post Office appropri- j
ation bill. Involving the proposal to
restore to the pay roll the 1,300 Treas
ury employes who have been working
without salaries since December, has
been delayed until later in the -week.
A Senate subcommittee, which has
heard the testimony on the question,
had expected to meet yesterday after
noon, but the work of other Senate
committees necessitated postpone
ment. The subcommittee may resume
Ite deliberations tomorrow or next
day.
The pay of these workers, prin
cipally in the Alcohol Tax Unit, was
stopped by a rider placed on current
appropriations at the last session by
Senator McKellar, Democrat, of Ten- j
nessee, who had questioned the civil
, service status of a large group of these
employes and sought to require them
to take another examination. The
controller general's office later found
that the Senate proviso affected a
larger number of employes. President
Roosevelt has sent forward the re
quest for authority to pay these em
ployes and Treasury Secretary Mor
genthau made a strong appeal to the
subcommittee for favorable action.

A
TARZAN AND THE LION MAN. —By EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS
The girl now turned a quick glance toward the
ape man. He saw that she was quite like Naomi.
This, he thought, must be Rhonda Terry. And now
his face was revealed to her by the flickering light
of the torch. "Stanley Obroekil" she gasped. "You
a prisoner, too?"
"I auppoae I un," Tartan replied. But he did not
correct her misapprehension that he was Obroakl.
"I thought you were dead," cried the girl; "what
are you doing here?" "I came to find you," he an
swered. "You!" Her tone was incredulous, lor
Obroekl waa far from brave.
Now the creature in the next 'room had reached
the bars It had the face of a man, with the black
akin of a gorilla. Its grinning lips revealed the
fangs of the anthropoid, and scant black hair cov
ered those portions of its body that shirt and loin
cloth did not conceal.
The skin of the body, arms and legs was black,
with large patches of white. The wrinkled, hairy
hands ended In long, curved claws. The eyes were
the sunken eyes of a very old man. Tarzan looked
upon It and knew Instinctively that It revealed mon
strous brutality!
