1 ANTI-CRIME PLAN Gov. Lehman Says Group Is Trying to Kill 60-Point Program. . By the Associated Press. ALBANY, N. Y., February 24.—Gov. Herbert H. Lehman put his 60-point anti-crime program in the hands ol the public today, charging a ‘‘pow erful group of lawyer legislators” with trying to kill his plan. He singled out three men, includ ing a Tammany Democrat, as leaders in a scheme “to strangle and defeat (as much of this program as they dared.” They are Assemblymen Horace M. t 6tone. Republican cbainc*” “f the Assembly Judiciary Committee; James R. Robinson, Republican chair man of the Assembly Codes Commit ► tee, and John A. Byrnes, Tammany Democrat. All are lawyers. Unhesitatingly the Republican * leadershiD in the Assembly accented the challenge under the leadership of Btone. who has termed the crime control proposals “90 per cent rot.” Meantime, Speaker Irving M. Ives said that 20 or more anti-crime bills now on the Assembly calendar will be acted upon tonight in an effort to clear the decks of all crime con trol proposals. Thus far, only eight of the threescore measures have passed both houses and gone to the Governor for his signature. The Governor, speaking last night over a State-wide radio hook-up, struck firmly to his statement of a week ago that “powerful groups” are attempting to scuttle his proposals. “Isn’t it self-evident,” he asked, •that there are powerful groups who have determined to kill as much of it ^anti-crime program) as they dare?” Turning bitterly on the Republicans, the Governor a reused them of going back on their promises. “Where is there any evidence of the co-operation which the Republican legislators pledged in their statement of December, 1935? What has hap pened to their promise to continue their efforts to strengthen the laws lor the prevention of crime? What has happened to their determination then announced to give the subject more than mere lip service?” Lehman's address followed adoption , by the Republican-controlled Assem tf bly of a resolution demanding that the Governor substantiate his charges that "powerful groups” are attempt ing to kill his crime control agenda and that he name any legislators k whose votes he believes were con trolled. ' NYE CONTINUES DRIVE ON WAR PROFIT BAN Tells School Teachers That Wil son “Winked” at His Own Neutrality Policy. ATLANTIC CITY, February 24.— Senator Gerald P. Nye, Republican, of North Dakota, denounced war profit eers last night as “more hatmful than Baby Face Nelson or A1 Capone.” Speaking before the second annual Eastern convention of the National * Association of School Secretaries, he reiterated his oft-expressed belief that unless profit is removed from war, and legislation is passed to insure abso lute neutrality, “there can be no escape from future and more catastro phic wars” than the World War. Nye also said President Wilson ••winked” at his own neutrality pol icy. He read excerpts from official correspondence to support his charge. ■ ■—-• 1 ■— WADE DENIES DEALING 4 WITH BRAZILIAN REBELS Flyer Says He Did Not Receive Any Money Mentioned in Munitions Probe.

E. R A. Bovines Back on Native Dakota Heaths, but Fate Hangs Between Starvation and Ax. BY CARLISLE BARGERON. The epithets being leveled against the New Deal by the men In well stocked clubs is nothing to what goes on every time two or more of those drought cows get together. Some 3,000 of them have Just come to the end of their Odessey out in North Dakota, where, according to Edward Afraid-of-Hawk, Sioux Indian, they are dying on their feet. The experience of these cows since the professors decided in 1934 that they needed the broadening effect of travel, make for more pathos than Longfellow's Evangeline. It’s been a dog’s life for these cows, that’s what it's been. They were crazy to get back to their North Dakota home, and when the word came to them in Nogales, Mexico, that they had been placed under another alphabetical agency that would get them there, you can imagine the rejoicing among them, But their return from the warm clime of Mixico to the worst Winter North Dakota has had in years has left them fteezing and starving to death. They’ve been places. They are the mo6t widely traveled cows in this or any other country. Homesick, all the time, too. Under the auspices of the old F. E. R. A. they were huddled to gether and sent off to Georgia and the Carolinas when the drought made the pickings of their native pastures slim. They hated like the dickens tc break away from fields in which they had been born and reared, in which their children and aunts and nieces had all lived, but the Government was killing the little pigs about that time so they thought they had better nol complain. Upset by South. Their trials and tribulations were heard about at the time. They didn’t get along down South at all. Thi men cows made that irresponsible Southern love to them and they didn'1 know how to take it. Not only that but they were never allowed to stay in one pasture long enougn to settle down. The Government was paying rent for the fields in which they grazec so the politicians would keep moving them from Mr. Smith’s place to Mr Brown's so everybody could get in or the rent. Then they went down to Mexicc where the couldn't understand whai the Spanish cows were saying. Fami lies had been torn asunder. The cow heart was heavy with sorrow. r many rxux. iugwcu gut me cuw; when he took over the Resettlemen Administration. He decided that i good thing to do would be to turr them over to the Indians so he gavi them to the Indian agency in th< Interior Department. Word came U the cows down in Mexico last Septem ber that Secretary Ickes was over then now and that they were returninf home. Well, like the soldiers return ing from Prance, you can imagine how long it took. Pay for Re-entry. First the Government had to pa; a tariff upon their re-entry into th< country and they had to pass all sorts of examinations, not only as they came into the country but through ever; State they passed, and there were t lot of States between them and Norti Dakota. It was’November when the; got home. Winter was well undei way, an awful Winter, too. The In dians, according to Mr. Afraid-of Hawk, who is secretary of the Stand ing Rock Tribal Council, didn’t have anything to give them to eat. First there was the drought of 1934 which was the cause for the cows beinj sent places in the first place. Ther in the Spring of 1935 there was plent; of rain but the hot winds and grass hoppers subsequently came to ruin th< crops. What little stock they wen keeping the Indians, Mr. Afraid-of Hawk says, were feeding thistles, sun flowers and weeds. The agreement by which the cowi were given them, Mr. Afrald-of-Hawk says, provides the cows must be kept until they have produced calves to take them places. Well, they ccn’t feed them. Under their agreement with the Government they can’t eat them. They’re right cultured cows by now and a lot of money has been spent on their education, but they are dropping in their tracks by the hundreds, says Mr. Afraid-of-Hawk, and he and Representative Burdick are trying to do something about it —that is, get permission to kill the cows and eat them. Dog 6War’ at End As Owners Plan To Stencil Pets Mayor of Ohio Village Also Respects Rights of Visiting Canines. By the Associated Press. CINCINNATI. February 24—The Ohio-Indiana “dog war" In the nearby village of Harrison approached a peaceful conclusion today. Mayor I. S. (Ike) Brinkham pro claimed an end to the “war" which caused no end of trouble for canine owners who live near the Indiana Ohio line, which splits one of Har rison’6 principal streets, by declaring: “We’re going to stencil the animal’s name and address with indelible ink on each dog. That’ll keep folks with taking ways from removing those Ohio tags from a dog’s collar and doing away with the dog, too. And it ought to give Indiana dogs an tne pnv ' ileges they need for visiting their Ohio friends." The controversy arose from a di versity in Ohio and Indiana license regulations. Indiana dog owners are , given a slip of paper to show the [ animal is licensed, while metal tags are placed on Ohio dogs. ! $3450 «r CHICAGO CALIFORNIA AIR CONDITIONED Chair Cars on fast trains • —Delicious meals, with quality and service made famous by Fred Harvey, now served en route, to certain trains, at Harvey Dining Stations, at NEW LOWER PRICES. —Liberal Baggage Allowance. • O.
