GTON, March 2.—<AV
of five more American ma
in Nicaragua precipitated an
row in the senate today over
administration policy in that
ral American republic,
nator Dill, democrat, Washing
began the issue by reading news
rcounts of the latest battle between
e Sandino forces and the marines,
at the same time firing a broadside
at the senate foreign affairs com
mittee for not reporting on any of
the resolutions concerning the Nica
raguan situation which were intro
duced early in the session.
Chairman Borah of that commit
tee rose immediately to aay that the
committee had been gathering “all
the information” possible and had
“exhausted the subject as far as the
facta of the military and naval aetion
are concerned.” He said that some
pronouncement on the subject would
be forthcoming within the next 48
hours, telling Dili, however, that so
aetion has been taken or contemplat
ed on any qf the resolutions sub
mitted.
Borah said that he donbted the
effect on the administration policy of
senate action, end Dill took violent
exception to this view.
“Does that mean that the marines
will continue to wage war in Nica
ragua indefinitely, regardless of our
attitude?” Dill asked'
Senator Shortridge, republican,
California, asked Dill if he wanted
the marines withdrawn, and the
Washington senator returned an em
phatic “Ye;;.”
Shortridge said such withdrawal
would mean that American citizens
and property in Nicaragua would re
main at the “mercy of the bandit,
Sandino.”
Dill denied that Americans or
American lives were endangered, and
ahonted that he did not believe that
the marines should he sent anywhere
to protect “large investments of a
few.” Hia declaration was greeted
with applause from both the floor
and galleries, while Vice President
Dawes pounded for order.
Senator Edge, republican. New
Jersey, then asked if the Washington
senator would “repudiate a solemn
contract with both political parties”
and leave Nicaragua to “bloodshed.”
“It will not be American blood
shed.” Dill said. “I am against
spending American lives to buy
profits for men who have invest
ments in Nicaragua.”

Signs of Illness
Your tongue is nothing more
the upper end of your stomach
and intestines. It is the first thing
your doctor looks at. It tells at a
glance the condition of your diges
tive system — and phyrieians say
that 90 per cent of all sicknesses
start with stomach and bowel
trouble.
~ A white or yellow
ish coating on your
tongue is a danger
signal of those diges
tive disorders. It tells
you why the least ex
ertion tires you out;
why you have pains in
the bowels, gas, sour
stomach, diny spells.
And it's a sign you need Tanlac.

Mrs. Cunningham Re
veals Platform I n
Talk at Huntsville
With Home Friends
HUNTSVILLE, Texas, March 2.—
—Opening her campaign, Mra.
Minnie Fisher Cunningham, candi
date for Earle B. Mayfield's place in
the United States senate on a demo
cratic ticket, told a home town
crowd at the courthouse here today
that she is for prohibition, tariff re
form, farm relief, reduction of tax
es, an adequate flood control pro
gram, a "courageous" water power
program, and a foreign policy “look
ing toward peace in the world."
"I am against the Ku Klux Rian,”
she said, “against the use of in
junctions in labor disputes, against
government by secrecy, and against
the 20-year big navy program."
Drafted supposedly as a revenue
measure, the republican tariff has
become a “sacred cow” of the party
for its real capacity as a protective
measure for ro-called “infant indus
tries,” Mrs. Cunningham said, and
added:
“For the benefit of our infant in
dustry, the United States Steel cor
poration, the tariff on pig iron is
boosted skyward and you pay it in
cost of transportation and in manu
factured farm implements."
Even as a revenue measure, the
tariff is piling up a treasury sur
plus inviting government extrava
gance and political corruption, she
said.
“It is also as a measure of farm
relief that I am for immediate tariff
reform,” she said. “Obviously, if the
American farmer is compelled by the
laws of his own country to buy
everything he needs in the way of
manufactured goods—clothing and
food in a highly 'protected' market
and then must go with his surplus
produce and compete, with no pro
tection at all, in the markets of the
world, the economic stage is all set
for his ruin.”
Mrs. Cunningham declared flood
control and water power to be en
gineering problems and not legiti
mate political issues. As long as
senators favored by public utility
interests are responsible for the
fate of government dam projects,
Boulder Dam will go unbuilt, Mus
cle Shoals will continue as a battle
ground, men will lose their tor
»««*•». *nd lives in avoid
able floods," she said.
Favoring the League of Nations
as a means of curbing war, Mru.
Cunningham insisted that war mak
ing power of this country is kept
I5».con*rM*» and wanted to know
Whose war is this that is being
waged against Nicaragua, and when
did congress vote to invade that
sovereign state ?”
»sSh* J*“fcked „ Secretary Wilbur’s
three billion dollar naval program as
I an extravagant idea born of a con
venient treasury surplus and the
chagrin caused by the failure of tho
republican administration to nego

but the people should not have to

CORPUS PLEA
Governor to Continue
Fight to Block
Pipe Line
AUSTIN. Tex., Mar. 2.—(^-Re
quest of the mayor of Corpus Chris
ti, officials of its chamber of com
merce, and others, that the atate
cease efforts to enjoin the Humble
Oil company from laying an oil
loading pipe line into the Corpus
Christi bay will not be granted as
far as Governor Moody is concern
ed, it developed Friday.
The governor in a letter to the
petitioning officials said MYou are
not to consider that I am obstinate
about this matter or that I have set
myself up as a better judge of what
is good for the welfare of the port
(Corpus Christi) but I \ ant you to
know that my position in the matter
is determined by what I believe to
be my duty by the public interest
Involved.”
Various persons and interests in
Corpus Christi opposed the line when
it first was started, and asked the
state to intervene.
Attorney General Claude Pollard
obtained a restraining order in
Travis county district court, but the
third court of civil appeal here dis
solved it and denied the state re
hearing. An appeal tor writ of
error to the supreme court is being
prepared.
Reciting that conferences with the
Humble company “unfortunately”
have failed to result In nn adjust
ment, the governor in his letter said
in part: "I do not undertake to
speak for Mr. Pollard, but I believe
that 1 express his sentiments, ms
well as my own, when I say that I
have no desire in the matter other
than to discharge what I conceive
to be a public duty. 1 regard the
port at Corpus Christi as an import
ant public enterprise which will ma
terially benefit our state if its pos
sibilities are thoroughly developed.”
Rockefeller May
Request Stewart
To Resign Post
NEW YORK, March 2.*—(AV-Job#
D. Rockefeller, Jr., who declined to
vote for, or against, the election of
Colonel Robert Stewart, as direc
tor of the Standard Oil company of
Indiana, at yesterday's meeting of
stockholders, is still seeking the
facts, and is now taking, and will
take, such steps in the matter as he
thinks proper, one of his associates
declared in a prepared statement
today.
The statement was given out at
Mr. Rockefeller’s office at 2€ Broad
way, but the identity of “one of his
associates” was not divulged.
“The published correspondence
which Mr. Rockefeller has had with
Senator Walsh,” the statement said,
“showed that Col. Stewart had of
fered to resign from the Indiana
company on request. In view of this
offer and of the fact that his res
ignation is available at any time, it
is clear that nothing would have
been gained by opposing Col. Stew
art s re-election yesterday.”

U. S. PRESIDENT
Coolidge Fails to Aid
In Teapot Inquiry,
Candidate Says
S ANGELES, March l.-UPh
1 ing loose a bitter attack on the
repaoliran administration after
formally entering the California
presidential primary, Senator Reed
of Missouri yesterday charged Pres
ident Coolidge with misfeasance in
office for failure to aasist the aen
ate in its investigation of the naval
oil reserve-leases.
Before a large and enthusiastic
crowd at Long Beach, adjoining
Shore City, the militant Missourian
stopped in the midst of his speech,
raised his hand and declared:
“I charge President Coolidge with
misfeasance in office.”
The audience, which frequently
had interrupted him with applause,
sat silent and tense as the senator
went on to declare that the presi
dent in keeping “the arch criminal,
Harry Daugherty” as attorney gen
eral during the oil inquiry, and in
failing to turn over the facilities of
the secret service and grand jury for
assistance, had neglected to do his
duty.
The crowd cheered him as he went
on to assail the president and sec
retaries Hoover and Mellon and
when he had concluded his listeners
J milled about him to grasp his hand.
Senator Reed referred to the com
merce secretary as "Hoover, late of
England,” and declared that as food
administrator during the war, he
I had “arbitrarily, illegally and al
most feloniously” fixed the price of
pain. He said the farmers had
been forced to "sell at the Hoover
level” and to buy at the "world
level."
He scored Secretary Mellon for
his support of William S. Vare In
the "corrupt Pennsylvania senatorial
election.”
‘Block Booking’
Inquiry Fails To
Call Will Hays
WASHINGTON, Mar. 2.—<AV-Will
H. Hays, chairman of the motion
picture producers and distributors of
America, has left Washington with
out testifying at the senate hearings
on “block booking" of films.
The senate interstate commerce
committee concluded hearings today
on the Srookhart bill to restrict dis
tribution methods by which it has
been charged exhibitors were forced
to accept inferior products along
with those of better grade, or get
none at all.
Hays has been assailed by some
independents for enforcing a system
whiejj they claimed took away their
liberty of action and placed them at
the mercy of the large distributing
organizations.
At the final hearing today, two
amendments to the Brookhart bill
were recommended by William S.
Chase, general secretary of the fed
eral motion picture council, the first
to recognise “the production and dis
tribution of motion pictures as a
public utility, and the second to
specify that it must not be “in
terpreted to prevent block booking."
