dent Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It
marks five years of progress under his
inspiring and courageous leadership,”
declared Mr. Barkley. "During that
period the improvement which has
been experienced in the conditions
with which we were confronted when
the present administration took over
the reins of Government has been of
a definitely beneficial character. Con
gress. working in co-operation with the
administration, has enacted legislation
which has been beneficial, remedial
and constructive in dealing with the
problems of the Nation as a whole.
'Adequate aid to agriculture, which
will produce harvests of profit, has
been provided. The national currency
has been stabilized. Industry has
been stimulated. Commerce has been
wholesomely and beneficially regu
lated. Flood control has been inau
gurated. Food, clothing and shelter
have been given to the needy. Social
security for millions of our people has
been assured. Effectual national de
fense has been provided. Revenue
for governmental purposes has been
equably distributed. Crime has been
diminished and largely subdued. Laws
have been enacted for the advantage
of shipping and transportation. Roads
have been built with national aid.
Labor has been more fully recognized
and protected than ever before. En
couraging co-operaton has been given
to the youth of our country. Trade
agreements have been entered into
which have stimulated the commerce
of the Nation. The welfare of veter
ans of our wars has been liberally
provided and protected. Greed and
special privilege have been the sub
jects of investigations and suppres
sions. Party platforms have been
fulfilled, and our peace with the
world has been kept.
“This is a record of achievement
and accomplishment of which any
party or any administration may well
be proud. On this fifth anniversary
of the inauguration of President
Roosevelt we proclaim our faith in
democracy and rejoice at its progress
In our Nation.”

Injury Claim Ruling May Add
Millions to Reorganizing
By the Associated Press.
ST. LOUIS, March 5.—The attorney
who won a United States Circuit
Court of Appeals decision giving per
sonal injury claims of employes
priority over bondholders’ liens esti
mated today the opinion might add
“millions” of dollars to rail reorgan
ization costs.
The decision, affirming as preferen
tial a $15,000 judgment awarded Guy
W. Williams, former Frisco auditor,
against that railroad for injuries suf
fered in a wreck August 21, 1930, up
held constitutionality of section 77 (n)
of the amended bankruptcy act apply
ing to railroad reorganization.
The section gives priority to such
claims and directs payment as operat
ing expenses from assets. Such judg
ments previously had been held gen
eral unsecured claims.
Waldo C Mayfield, Williams’ at
torney, said the decision was the first
by an appelate court on the section,
and would be applicable to “thou
sands” of employes’ claims against
roads in bankruptcy. He added that
this case “probably” would be carried
to the Supreme Court, and if upheld
would add “millions" to expenses of
such railroads.
Trustees of prior lien mortgages,
securing Frisco bonds, fought the case
on constitutional grounds, contend
ing section 77 (n) deprived security
holders of property without due proc
ess of law.
The decision, written by Judge J. W.
Woodrough, Omaha, and concurred in
by Presiding Judge Kimbrough Stone
and Judge Van Valkenburgh, both of
Kansas City, said in part:
“Mortgage liens • • * have little of
substance or vitality independent of
operation of the road, and operation
costs life and limb and labor and
money • • *.
“Income from operation is qualified
by the rights of those who contribute
the other elements of value • •

Cummings Seeking
Executive Pardon
For Isle Prisoner
In Jail When Robbery
Was Committed,
l . S. Finds.
By the Associated Press.
Attorney General Cummings yes
terday recommended to President
Roosevelt executive clemency for Rol
lie (Hard-Rock Roy) Rector, serving
a 20-year sentence on Alcatraz Island
for bank robbery.
In a memorandum dispatched to
the White House by special messenger,
Mr. Cummings told the President that
the Federal Prison Bureau had dis
covered that Rector was confined to a
Texas jail when the crime for which
he was convicted was committed.
He was sentenced to 20 years' im
prisonment for participating in the
robbery of a bank at Saint Jo, Tex.,
and in 1935 sent to Alcatraz.
A presidential pardon does not mean
freedom for Rector, however. By di
rection of Gov. Allred of Texas, a de
tainer will be served on the prisoner
the moment he is freed of the Federal
charges. The detainer will call for
his return to Texas, where he must
serve the remainder of a State sen
tence imposed for robbery.
