The Complexion 9 out of 10 Hollywood Screen Stars use Counsel Prepares For Mrs. Harriman's Lottery Defense Marshals Forces After Government Rests Its Case By the Associated Press. [ SANTA FE, N. Mex., April 16.— Counsel for Mrs. Oliver Harriman and her four co-defendants mar shaled their forces in Federal Court today in an effort to refute Govern ment charges that the group con spired to violate lottery laws in at tempting to promote a lottery in New Mexico in 1938. The Government late yesterday rested its case against the five, charged with a plot to carry New Mexico-printed sweepstakes tickets across State lines. The New York social leader headed an organization which sought unsuccessfully to establish a million-dollar lottery for the an nounced purpose of benefitting a New Mexico children’s hospital. Her co-defendants are Mary De rieux, Irma Hopper, F. W. Benduhn and Frank S. White. Harrison J. Tharp, one of the original defendants who pleaded no defense, testified he could not spe cifically recall that Mrs. Harriman ever had personal knowledge of the interstate movement of tickets. He told the court earlier he and Benduhn had taken a quantity of tickets from Albuquerque to Colorado by automobile in the summer of 1938. He expressed belief no member of the Harriman Institute for Social Research, the lottery promoting agency, believed “there was any big money to be made in New Mexico,” nor did he believe there was any one in the group "who didn’t know these tickets were to be sold in any State in which they could be peddled.” Walter Higgins, New York F. B. I. agent, told of a conversation he had with Mrs. Harriman about the pur pose of a contract she signed for George Perry, financial “angel” of the lottery plan. “She said her un derstanding of the contract was that it would allow Perry to sell tickets in New York and other States, pro vided they were purchased in New Mexico,” he said. Wallace Asks 21 Changes In Farm Program By the Associated Press. Secretary Wallace urged Congress yesterday to make what he called 21 “minor modifications” in the farm program in the interest of “effective and economical administration.” His proposed amendments, direct ed chiefly at wheat, cotton and tobacco phases of the program, did not, he said, “call for any substan- ! tial change" because of his belief in the program's basic soundness. His : recommendations were made in a letter to Speaker Bankhead. Among general changes, he pro posed amendments to which he said : would: Simplify the method of making payments to deceased payees. Require persons entitled to benefit payments to apply personally there for. Clarify the definition of “market" | to make the act applicable to the marketing by producers of cotton, wheat, rice or tobacco in processed form, and to include gifts under “marketing." Provide penalties for buyers who fail to pay the Government penalties collected from producers. Extend from one to two years the time in which application may be made for a refund of a penalty erroneously collected. Place upon the producer the burden of proving, in cases of dis pute, that he has not marketed a commodity subject to penalty. Mrs. Roosevelt Urges Educational Opportunities By the Associated Press. CHATTANOOGA, Term., April 16. —Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt point ed last night to Federal aid as the only means of providing equal edu cational opportunities for all chil dren, but added “of course” control of the funds should be left within the State. Speaking before the Southern Conference for Human Welfare on a panel devoted to “children in the South,” the President's wife prefaced her statement with an assertion that equal opportunities now are not being given. “I know that the children in the 13 Southern States are going to spread out and be the citizens of many States,” Mrs. Roosevelt said. “I think it is of interest to the whole country what opportunity the chil dren in these States have for health and education.” Education also was offered as a safeguard for democracy. “We are the only democracy,” she said, “that does not live in fear and it behooves us to see every child brought up to know what they owe democracy.” Sonnysayings L___-4- I6J I don’t know why it is I kin run so much faster goin’ home t’ dinner than when I is out runnin’ a race, I ’nless it’s when goin’ home I has dinner ahead of me an’ when racin’ 1 just got a lot ob fellers ahead ob me.

North of Kristiansand, at Evje mon. 150 officers and 2.000 soldiers of the 3d Norwegian Division put j down their arms after a short at- i tack by German troops. Movements of the German troops in the Oslo sector proceeded on schedule. Pacification of Southeast ern Norway is progressing. Thirty- j six cannon were captured. The navy expanded the protection of the harbors of Trondheim. Bergen and Stavanger and augmented the coast guard service. The defense against submarines was continued, thus the possibilities for enemy U boats to operate were further cur tailed. The air force continued recon naissance over the North Sea and the Norwegian coast as far as Narvik. One British airplane which flew into the German Bight, and dropped bombs into the Weser Estuary without success, was shot down in an air fight northeast of Helgoland by a member of the Schumacher Pursuit Squadron, which thus scored its 17th Asbury M.

Dewey accused the New Deal of “defeatism and bungling bureaucracy” in a bid last night for Indiana support of his Republican presidential candidacy. The 38-year-old New York district attorney told a Republican rally in Butler University’s big field house that national economy has “gone backward” under the Roosevelt ad ministrations and that seven steps are necessary to "bring business enterprise to life in this country.” The speech was broadcast over the National Broadcasting Co.’s Blue network. While indications are that the Indiana delegation to the party’s national convention will not be in structed, Dewey supporters hoped his appearance here would help him win favor among the delegates, who will be selected at the State con vention May 23 and 24. Seven-Point Program. “It is time to stop politics and go back to work,” Mr. Dewey asserted in offering his seven-point program.

(2) “Stop bureaucratic interfer ence with the management of hon est business.” (3) “Put experience, ability and fair play in the Securities and Ex change Commission and other reg ulatory bodies.” (4) Redesign the tax structure so that It will no longer drive money into the bombproof shelters of tax exempt bonds ” (5) “Improve the credit facilities for small business.” <6i “Put an end to Government policies of defeatism, of ill-con ceived experiments, of frantic im provising in domestic and foreign affairs." (7) “Learn the difference between stopping abuses and grabbing power. Learn again that this country be lieves in government by law and 1 not government by men.” Lack of Integrity Charged. Mr. Dewey told his audience that “underlying causes of the failure of i this country to recover from this !
