Gov. Lehman Says Group Is
Trying to Kill 60-Point
. 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
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

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.

Cows Re-Enact Evangeline
Muchly Traveled F. E. R A. Bovines Back on
Native Dakota Heaths, but Fate Hangs
Between Starvation and Ax.
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
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.
