bill against Willie Smith, colored,
charged with murder in connec
tion with the death of Capt. N. G.

tempted get-away by sending him
a change of clothes, and by burn
ing a part of the clothing he w*;e
at the time of Captain Ward's in
jury.
In the court this morning Cal
vin Stepp and Ed Hickman were
each given six-months sentences

MANY JOIN IN
TRIBUTE PAID
DR. JUSTUS
I
Large Gathering Deeply!
Moved at Last Rites,
Held Tuesday
Hendersonville and the county
paid tribute Tuesday afternoon to
the memory of Dr. W. H. Justus,!
pioneer pharmacist who died Mon
day, at funeral services held in
the First M. E. church and nt
brief graveside services in Oak
dale cemetery.
While the principal business
houses of the city closed at o
o'clock for the funeral, hundreds
of sorrowing relatives and friends
gathered in the church for im
pressive rites. Contempoiaries of
Dr. Justus in the business life of
Hendersonville years a^o. mer
chants of today, associates in
church and social life, and friends
from all sections of the city and
county joined family and other
relatives in mourning his depar
ture. Practically every business
house in the city was represented.
The chancel of the church was
piled high with floral offerings
fronl organizations within the
church and from other groups and
individuals.
The Rev. Claude H. Moser, the
deceased's pastor, conducted tha
services. Mrs. J. W. Payne, Mrs.
Mabel Baughman, Roy C. Bennett
and J. C. Coston sang "Face to
Face," with Miss Kate Dotson as
organ accompanist, after which
the Rev. Mr. Moser read the four
teenth chapter of John, beginning
"Let not your heart be troubled,"
and then offered a prayer that
deeply impressed all present. The
quartet sang, "We Shall Sleep
But Not Forever," and the Rev.
Mr. Moser then spoke briefly con
cerning the life and character of
the deceased, closing with a read
ing of Sam Waiter Foss' "Let Me
Live in a House by the Side of the
Road."
• ' L.. il.«
"A community is r«icU i/v, w.^,
type and caliber of its citizen
ship," the Rev. Mr. Moser said,
"and I see here today wonderful
evidence of the love and esteem
in which Dr. Justus was held. This
and every other community needs
more men of his type—builders
who leave the impress of pood
character on the lives of all they
touch."
While the Rev. Mr. Moser spoke
there was scarcely a dry eye in
the house, and when he had fin
ished the large congregation filed
j out with deepest reverence.
I Scores of cars were driven to
the cemetery where the final rites
were held.

MORE CROP FUNDS WILL BE j
LOANED IN COUNTY TO AID
FARMERS THAN PAST SEASON,
I
But Government Loans
This Year Are in Na-|
ture of Trust Funds
With Heavy Penalty for
Their Diversion
Although restrictions on fed
eral farm loans have been tight
ened this year, a larger aum is
expected to be loaned to farm
ers in this county than last year,
according to D. L. McCafferty,
field inspector for the crop loan
production office.
Mr. McCafferty is now at his
office on the second floor of the
city hall and will assist fanners
in making out applications for
loans.
Regulations provide that the
maximum permitted to any one
borrower is $300, or in case of
tenants the total of all loans to
tenants and landlords within a
single county cannot exceed
$1200. The actual amount ad
vanced will depend upon the
borrowers' requirements. A first
lien or mortgage on the crop will
be required.
The loans must be repaid on
on or before October 31, 1933.
Last year loans were required to
be repaid before November 30.
Interest at 5 1-2 per cent an
nually, deducted in advance, will
be charged.
Since loans call for a first
lien on the crop, the borrower
frequently has to procure waiv
ers from prior mortgage rights,
Mr. McCafferty said.
If the applicant is a tenant or
is farming land under deed or
so-called crop contract or has
given a prior mortgage on 1933
crops, regulations require that
he must secure waivers. If the
applicant is an owner and farms
with share croppers, waivers of
such must be secured.
Regulations further require
that the person waiving rights
must agree not to dispose of his
rent note, mortgage, or other se
curity without first having ob
tained the written consent of the
duly authorized agent of the
secretary of agriculture.
Regulations make it unlawful

WITH JAPANESE ARMY,
Lingyuan, Jehol, March 8.—
(UP).—Japanese military forces
today garrisoned towns captured
by advance units last week, re
storing order and doing advance
work for commercial conquest to
follow military victory.
While the fast-moving, hard
fighting advance units that cap
tured Chengtehfu were reported
preparing to establish a neutral
zone by pushing Chinese well in
side the great wall, the vanguard
of the Japanese-Manchu forces
divided into units to protect cap
tured cities from surprise at
tacks.
A main force moved into Lin
gyuan today. Guards were de
railed to remain here and the re
mainder marched on to Cheng
tehfu. The advance from Chin
chow required five days of hard
marching. Units dropped out at j
Peipiao, Chayang and Yehbei-1
shou to man garrisons.
Chinese residents of the cities j
calmly resumed business that,
was suspended during hostilities.
They displayed no enmity to ard
the Japanese.
Uhinese who naa reoccupitu
Lingyuan after Japanese capture
were at lunch when the vanguard
arrived Saturday. They had
posted no guards. Appearance
of armored tanks over the hills
outside the town was the first
warning of attack.
After two hours of desolutory
resistance ,the Chinese fled,
leaving many dead.
Japanese troops advancing
from Suichung did not enter
Lingyuan, but swung to the
south.
Missionaries located here were
unharmed during hostilities and
those in other Jehol cities are
reported safe.

BANK HOLIDAY
EXTENDED ONE
DAY IN STATE
State Trust Co. Will Con
tinue Limited Service
to Patrons
COMMUNITY~SPIRIT
REMAINS UNSHAKEN
The bank holiday ordered in
North Carolina until tonight,
wa» extended today through to
morrow night to conform to the
national moratorium, according
to a dispatch to The Times-News
from Raleigh.
Gov. J. C. B. Ehringhaus in
dicated he will extend the holi
day even longer if such action is
taken by the federal government.
Regulations promulgated by the
United States treasury depart
ment were adopted in full for
enforcement in this state.
Officials of the State Trust
company said this afternoon that
the bank will be open from 9 to
10 a. m. Thursday as on the
first three days this week, and
that limited service as prescrib
ed by the United States treas
ury will continue until further
relaxation of regulations is au
thorized.
In the absence of definite in
structions concerning the termina
tion of the nation-wide bank holi
day. officials of the State Trust
company could only announce at
noon today that "unless otherwise
advised the holiday will end to
night and the bank will be open
Thursday under regulations pre
scribed by the United States sec
retary of the treasury."
Should the holiday be extend
ed, as expected, it was not
thought that any more liberal reg
ulations than those already issued
would be adopted in state or na
tion. and It is believed that when
banks finally are permitted to re
open to l-eceive or pay out money
in regular course of business,
withdrawals will be limited.
Hendersonville, meanwhile, con
tinued to do business as best it
could under difficulties—all in
good spirit and without slacken
ing of confidence that local insti
tutions will be among the first to
recover from the financial situa
tion. Receipt of new orders by
local industries—notably Green
River Mills—gave added assur
ance that a maximum number of
persons will be employed at a
most difficult time, and that food
and clothing will be supplied as
well as before the bank holiday
was proclaimed.
Hendersonville stores today con
tinued to extend credit to persons
usually granted this courtesy and
to accept checks from regular cus
tomers.
In substance, regulations issued
by Secretary of Treasury Woodin
thus far—all forbidding payment
of gold or gold certificates—pro
vide:
1—Banks may pay out currency
to provide for transportation of
food, medicine or animal feed.
2—Money owed to banks by in
viduals or corporations may be
paid.
3—Change may be made by
banks.
4—Safe deposit boxes may be
made accessible to renters.

THREE ALLEGED OUTRAGES'
BY HITLERITES AGAINST U. S.
CITIZENS ARE PROTESTED
Terrorist Tactics Said Ap
plied to One; All Are
of Jewish Race
By FREDERICK KUH
United Press Staff Correspondent
BERLIN, March 8.—(UP).—
Three alleged "outrages" perpe
trated by Hitlerite Brown Shirts
against citizens of the United
States during the feverish period
of the Reichstag elections were
called to the attention of the Ger
man government yesterday by the
American embassy.
The American communication
was based mainly on the kidnap
ing and shanghaiing of Nathaniel
S. Wolff, 37-year-old painter from
Rochester, N. Y. Feeling has be
come acute among residents of
the American colony here as a re
sult of the three incidents, it is
said, and the embassy has publicly
offered assurance that every pre
caution is being taken to protect
citizens of the United States.
Wolff, in a sworn statement
given to the embassy, charges that
five or six uniformed Hitlerites en
tered his room at 5 a. m. Monday,
each with drawn revolver. They
called him a "dirty Jew," he said,
and searched his belongings. When
they asked him about certain re
marks they accused him of having
made, he offered a denial and ex
plained that he was not interested
in German politics.
The Hitlerites, he charges, then
struck him on the jaw and took
him to a police station, where he
was searched.
At the request of the Brown
Shirts. Wolff signed a paper cer
tifying that he is a Jew and pledg
ing himself to leave the city the
same evening for Paris. Eventual
ly, according to his affidavit, he
was taken to Grunewald forest
on the outskirts of the city where,
after being subjected to "terror
istic" treatment, he was aban
doned.
) Woltt, wno nao oeen visiuuk HI
Berlin three weeks, proceeded to
Paris after reporting the affair to
the embassy.
Another U. S. citizen who com
plained was Edwin Dakin, 34. a
native of Hannibal, Mo., and a
writer known widely in the United
States for his biography of Mary
Baker Eddy.
Dakin has been living in Ber
lin since September. Early Mon
day, he said, five Brown Shirts en
tered his room with drawn revolv
ers and asked why a red flat* was
displayed in his window. He ex
plained that the flag: did not be
long to him but had been left by
a previous occupant of the room.
The invaders then entered the
next room, supposedly occupied
by Communists, and did not re
turn.

Banks throughout the country

A note of optimism came from

| WASHINGTON. Mar. 8. (UP).
Secretary of the Treasury Woodin
said today that no script or clear
ing house certificates will be is
sued during the present banking
emergency.
Woodin said that actual money
will be circulated instead under a
plan now being formulated by th«;
Roosevelt administration. He told
newspapermen that he will not ap
prove the issuance of script before
Friday, the end of the holiday.
"I am stunned in admiration at
the co-operation of the people of
this country during the crisis. We
see light here and things aren't
going to pieces. Instructions sent
to the New York Federal Reserve
bank last night have been sent to

he said.
He did not indicate when the
currency to be issued would be

be required to whip into shape the
program to return the nation to

LEADERS ADVISED OF
ROOSEVELT'S PUNS
Br THOMAS L. STOKES
United Press Staff Correspondent
WASHINGTON. Mar. 8. (UP).
Democratic congressional leaders
were advised last night that Presi
dent Roosevelt would recommend
' a modified bank deposit guarantee
bill and measures to ratify hi<5
bank holiday when the special ses
sion opens Thursday noon.
The tentative plan is to enact
these bills by Saturday and ad
journ congress for two or three
weeks while committees prepare a
permanent legislative program
reaching all problems intensified
by the depression.
Democratic leaders joined Tues
| day in advocating a guarantee de
1 posits measure whereby national
I banks would contribute to a guar
antee fund to be handled by a
| government corporation.
President Roosevelt's recom
mendations for permanent legisla
tion are expected to include a gen
eral banking bill along lines of
the Glass bill passed by the last
congress, a farm relief measure,
an unemployment relief bill, a
beer bill, and possibly some reve
nue legislation to balance the
budget.
The president desires time to
formulate a plan for reorganizing
government departments under
the almost dictatorial power con
ferred upon him at the last ses
sion through which he hopes to
save around $200,000,000.
He hopes to have this ready for
congress when it reconvenes after
the proposed recess. Republican
leaders, it is learned, may insist
that the temporary banking pro
gram be referred to committee if
it is of involved character. If so,
the proposed recess may be post
poned for a week or more.
