Rapid Increase Washington—An urgent plea for governmental war against boot leggers was made by Federal Alco holic Control Administrator Joseph H. Choate, Jr. Fie charged that illicit liquor trade exceeds that of the legal industry. Choate termed the bootleg busi ness "prohibition’s Frankenstein monster” and asserted that "we re fuse to see its size and power, or to recognize what it has done to us.’ He cited seizures of illicit distil leries during this year as the basis for his computation that consump tion of bootleg stocks exceeds that of the legalized product. "We now have facts, he said, "from which the reasonable infer ence is that bootleg production con tinues cn so huge a scale as to on strain us to the conclusion that our people must now be consuming greater quantities of spirits than they did in pre-prohibition days, and that, while the legal industry has, and is using to its utmost extent, capacity enough to supply the pre prohibition demand, the illegal in dustry has, and is using a greater capacity, the product of which the public is presumably buying anjd consuming.” Choate did not blame federal enforcement agencies for bootleg traffic, saying i"they hfcive done wonders with the very limited means at their disposal” and have been operating with appropriations at or below prohibition, standards. BUNG )UND V YORK UGH KENNY ■■in ■ i a— : Many a mid-town tenement kid will miss the sheep that used to graze in Central Park. And since they’ve sent them over to Prospect Park there’ll be many a kid who’ll grow up, live and die in Manhat- j tan without ever knowing how a, lamb looks in real life—gamboling on. tbe green. For there are loads —rvativc New Yorkers wKo never ' leave the city of seven million. The window-washer in our office building is one of them. "Forty two years in New York,’’ he boasts, "And never been out of it yet!” .... And probably he didn’t even know that there was sheep in Cen tral Park! •j. *5. }J. There’s still money in New York ... A friend was telling of her sister’s wedding recepton. "Mother was a little startled,” she said, "for the bill for the cham pagne punch alone was $248 . . . And poor Sis—she could do with a little of that money!” .... Our friend didn’t mention the luxurious wedding gifts, however. Look! He holds that cane oddly. . . . Oh—he’s blind . . . "Going across?” I asked. It was up at Columbus Circle—southwest corner of Central Park .... I don’t have a complete mental picture of the streets,” he replied to my question, "just certain landmarks ... I ran, right into a traffic marker on the sidewalk this morning. Hit it pretty hard. But you have to ex pect accidents like that if you go outside at all. If you haven’t the courage to meet them—you stay cooped up in the house.” . . . Just another argulent for "The Seeing Eye,”’ that New Jersey institution that trains German Shepherds—er ronously called "Police Dogs”—to lead the blind intelligently avoiding ' just such accidents my chance ac ' quaintan!ce mentioned. » * *■ The cops in this town are brave lads, ordinarily. But they’re cam era-shiy! General O’Ryan, you see, who’s head of "New York’s Finest,” has issued orders that blue ccats must not pose for news camera men. "It’s undignified,” says the General. * « * Walk along Park Avenue or the residential parts of Fifth at mid night and you’re bound to see people "taking the dog for a walk.” .... They haven’t trained their dogs (or don’t own very smart ones) the way to take care of themselves. For there are dogs in town that will wait patiently for an elevator to stop at their floor, get aboard, wait for the doorman to open the outside door on the ground floor, take themselves for a walk, wait for the outer door to open, get aboard the elevator and get off at their very own floor. Then - they scratch at their apartment door till the master lets them in. i —--—I Traveling Around America [ ___ i - courtesy Aerial Exploration Co. WAITING FOR CUSTOMERS IF BEING handsome is the aid to salesmanship it is reputed to be— surely this Indian girl’s golden cakes will quickly find takers! Some of the most magnificent Indian types to be seen anywhere in the world today are found in the little villages nestling in the mountains of Bolivia and Peru— many of them pure types descended : from the jibes which made up the ancient Inca Empire. So fascinating ' are these hidden-away Indian villages ! that few travelers taking the weekly "Santa” cruises from California and i New York down the west coast of South America are content to leave Lima, capital of Peru, without taking the thrilling rail trip up the three-mile high mountains behind the city to visit the villages scattered along the route. Huancayo .he seldom-visited little town in which this photograph was taken is perhaps the most interesting because its market, thronged with In dians from all the outlying districts, is considered by many visitors to b< more colorful even than the Indiar market of La Paz, Bolivia, famous the world over. Architecture equally picturesque, a location 11,000 miles above sea-level which affords marvel ous birdseye-views of the surrounding countr ', and t temperate climate, art added attractions. Vieing in interest with the Indians dwelling in Huancayo are those ii the Chanchamayo valley where tribes changed only to a small degree b; civilization, still cling to many of thi superstitions and habits in vogue dur ing the days of the Incas. The Indians in this district still decorate thes faces with red and yellow dye, wea long loose robes, and deck themselves with bright strings of beads and bril liant feather crowns. Birth Control Motion Is Adopted By Social Group Raleigh.—The North Carolina Conference for Social Service went on record for repeal of the federal law prohibiting! dissemination of birth control information, and by a count of nine to six—with many members not voting—favored ab olition of capital punishment. A resolution was adopted re questing the state’s congressional '^delegation to vote for repeal of the federal statute prohibiting the spread of information about con traceptives through the mails and by common carriers. This action, taken at the closing session of the three day conference, came after an address by Dr. Hannah Stone of New York, medi cal director of Margaret Sanger’s birth control clinic. She declared the birth of a child "should never be permitted to be but 'the result of an accident in married relatioi^s. Itj should 'be something desired, planed for an always under the conscious and di rect control of the couple,” she said. The vote on abolition of capital punishment followed a brief de bate during which Miss Lily E. Mitchell, state welfare officer, said Ishe favored it as a means of ex^ terminating the unfit. Dr. Harry W. Crane of Chapel [Hill, answered that if this were Jdesired then all mental defectives of the state should be put to 'death. S. H. Hobbs, Jr., of Chap el Hill, spoke breifly against the resolution, saying he was for cap ital punishment. The conference re-elected Dean Justin Miller of Duke university law school, president; N. C. New bold of Raleigh, vice president, and J. S. Holmes of Raleigh, treasurer. Preacher Pilfers Petrol, ’Spostulates In Prison Darlington, S. C.—One of the main reasons why the Rev. Roose jvelt Evans, negro minister, will not !do any preaching for four months to come is because the congrega Dairy Farmer’s Plight Is Told Washington—The Administra tion is forced with but few more difficult problems than that of rescuing the dairy industry from the morass of over-production and ruinous prices, AAA officials be. lieve. A report on the general situation calls attention to recent milk strikes and other disorders and de clares that a survey showed that dairy farmers are not able to make a living. It adds: "It is a fact, probably not real ized by many city dwellers that even farm families suffer from hunger and malnutration. Mem bers of a dairyman’s family may have plenty of milk, but they often lack other essential foods. Many rural families are on public relief rolls.” A prime reason why the prob lem is difficult, the report says, is the distribution system resulting in monopolistic conditions in some cities, piling up the profits of the distributor at the expense of pro ducers and consumers.

The congregation Preacher Ev ans joined is the Darlington coun ty chain gang, and how Preacher Evans got on the chain gang is a story they Were tejli^g around town today. To make a long story short— Preacheb EvanS "snitched!’ some gasoline from the car of Mrs. Em ma McCullough and got caught. Of all people, it was Policeman White who caught him. The preacher checked out when he saw the policeman, and when the lat ter pulled out his pistol and fired it only made the preacher run that much faster. He got away. That was Sunday. But Monday the law caught up with Evans and hailed him into court. The judge said "four months,’’ and this morning they took Preacher Evans to the gang. "Here comes our preacher,” somebody said when Evans put in his appearance. Kept Taking Cardui Until She Got Rid of the Severe Pains When Mrs. Ida Hege, of Edin burg, Ind., was in a painful, run down condition, she took Cardui, with the results she describes be low: “I had just been what one might say dragging around, feeling miserable and all out of sorts. I remembered how Cardui helped my aunt. I sent for six bottles of Cardui and when I had taken them, I was much better and stronger. I did not suffer so much pain. I continued taking Cardui until I had taken nine bottles. I do not have the severe pains.” . . . Thousands of women testify Cardui benefited them.
