Solons Will Be Busy With Other Items Prohibition And Debt Discussions To Take Precedence; Farmers Push Petitions Determined To Carry On Fight For Easement Of Mortgage Problem Despite Outlook Legislative relief in the short session of congress for the 30,000, 000 Americans who depend on the farm for their livelihood is vir tually impossible, congressional leaders agreed according to press reports. They foresee a flood of legisla tion on other subjects that are pressing for immediate action. With the calendar loaded with such questions as modification of the Volstead act the war debts, they think it is unlikely that the farm problem can be dealt with in the crowded three months of the short session. Despite the gloomy outlook, farm groups are going ahead with their plans to petition congress. Farm delegatons will arrive next month from all parts of the coun try to urge the necessity of aid for agriculture. Specifically, they want an easement of the mortgage problem and some sort of action that will bring commodity prices up above the cost of production.

Two Fat Volumes Adele found enough time in the Bror('xviIle home of the Heims to write no fewer than two fat vol umes, much of which, according to the week-day husband, has to do with the week-end carryings on af Mrs. Heim in widely 'separated places, such as New York and Pocasset, Mass., where there is a Heim summer home.

Lupe Has Three Ritz’s For Wooers Lupe Velez, beautiful Mexican tempest, admitted that Harry Ritz is in love with her, but, she added, "It’s more than that. It’s the whole three Ritz brothers who are in love with me. And, if I married one, I would have to marry the three of them, and that’s too much even for Lupe.” 1Playing Together Miss Velez, at one time reported engaged to Gary Cooper and at another to Winfield Sheehan, pic ture producer, was in high spirits despite the fact that she had a bad cold and the city censor had cut oyt "the best part of my act” for the Sunday shows at the Metrop olitan Theatre where she is play ing with the Ritz Brothers. ..„"Jt..is.this..._wa-y,” Began Miss. Velez, f*I have been playing for two weeks with the Ritz brothers and naturally we four are together all the time. I love them, and they love me. We eat together, we laugh together, we clown together, we have a good time together. Then, I go to Hollywood to make pictures and they go somewhere else, and we don’t meet for a long time. It is always that way in my life.” i crrwie Lvuisance Then with that dramatic em phasis that characterizes Lupe, sometimes to the extent of pulling out her chestnut har, she said "It is a terrible nuisance whenever you go anyway having them ask, 'Who is it now?’ That’s all they think of, talk of, but of course,” sht laughed gaily, "if they didn’t talk about it, I wouldn’t like it at all. would I?” As Lupe talked in her dressing room, the three Ritz brothers were constantly popping in and out, and it seemed that Harry averaged two visits to his brothers’ one, but that may have been a reportorial miscalculation.. Can Do Without Lore "I really would rather get a reaction from my audience than from any admirer in the world. I coidd make my audience^ really love me. I never feel that I am good. I am always worried about my work. I know that when I shall feel that I am good, I shall be finished.” As Lupe talked, her small Mexi can "hairless” toy dog lay nestled in the folds of a sumptuous mir\k coat on the sofa. Her sister, who travels with Lupe, appeared now and then. The reporter asked, "Is your sister married?” Is The Boss And Won’t Marry This provoked a display of tem per from Lupe, "I kilh her if she gets married. It is terrible, thjs marriage for women who earn their own livings. Now,” she laughed in noisy merriment, "you know how I feel. I shall not mar ry. I am independent. I do not need a boss. I am the boss. I earn lots of money for myself. I do not need a husband. "It s not that I think I am bet ter than others,” she smiled, "i think none of us are better oi worse. Because a girl earns $ S 00C a week and another girl earns $25 a week, it does not make them any different. I think there is ■ one Garbo and one- Lindbergh, like that I think. And I think I must work hard and must never get a big head. You are -finished whcr. VOU get a big bead. See,” said Lu'Jc Child Better l oan husband ~ Lupe said that she had adopted her married sister’s child because she wants to have companionship when she gets old and she thinks children give better companionship than husbands. "I have no close friends among the important ones out in Holly wood,” said Lupe. "I have lots of friends among the extras and girls who work in other businesses out in Hollywood. I always laugh and play with the extra boys. We have a very good time in the studio. 1 i play dice with them. What do I care what the others think?” Lupe said that she regretted the fact that the death of Zigfield cut short her career on the musical corned;' stage under his banner. "There was only one Zigfield,” she said. As for Lupe, herself, she is dainty, good looking, and a spitfire of temperament and a geyser of af fection. Subscribe To The Watchman.

Charge Against Libby Reynolds Is Nol Prossed Action By State Also. Frees Ah Walker Of Murder Count Solicitor Higgins Tells Court Slate Not Justified In Pressing The Charges Halting a petty larceny trial for a brief and unspectacular in terlude, the state of North Caroli na November 15, at Winston-Sal em, wiped out the murder charge it had placed against Libby Hoi man Reynolds and young Albert Walker shortly after the fatal shooting last July of Smith Rey nolds, tobacco millionaire husband of the former and Chum of Walk er. Solicitor Carlisle Higgins nol prossed the case, with a brief an nouncement that a thorough study of the evidence against the erst while idol of Broadway and the 19-year-old Winston-Salem youth convinced him that the state wou'd not be justified in pressing the charges. The case was officially ended at 12:20 p. m., when Judge A. M. Stack, presiding in superior court, directed the clerk to enter the or der of nol pros, discharging the defendants, and release their $25, 000 bonds. Defense attorneys said the ac tion of the solicitor was acceptable to them. They interpreted it as the most complete exoueration pos sible under the laws of North Carolina, saying it restored their clients to the status existing be fore the murder charges were vot ed by a grand jury August 4. The final act in the real lire drama that aroused the interest of millions and inspired streamer headlines in newspapers through out the country was prosaic.
