Captain R. A. J. English of Ad
miral Byrd's supply ship, the
Bear, anchored here, denied last
ni«fht the ship had been in distress,
declaring* she had been brought
into port by weather bureau warn
ings her course lay directly in the
path of a tropical hurricane.
Earlier in the day it had been
reported the Bear, a rebuilt coast
guard cutter bound for Little
America in the Antarctic, base of
the Byrd expedition, had been dis
abled off Frying Pan shoals on
the North Carolina coast and had
sent an SOS call for the coast
guard cutter Modoc.
The captain, in a statement
given the United Press last night,
denied this. He said the ship was
in no way crippled and had come
to port under her own power, a
tug being used merely to tow her
up the river. She anchored at 5
o'clock this afternoon.
The Domoc was not at South
port last night.
Captain English said the Bear
would proceed on her journey as
soon as the weather bureau's re
port storm dangers past.

Brownlow Jackson Will Round Out
Four-Year Term As U. S. Marshal
Other Republican Holdovers for Western and Middle Dis
tricts Will be Expected to Yield Offices
by January 1st
United States district attorneys
and marshals for the western and
middle districts of North Carolina
will be called upon to yield their
offices to Democrats bv January
1. it became known today.
One exception will be made,
however, and that is in the case
of Brownlow Jackson, marshal for
the western district. His term ex
pires January 24, next, and it has
beep decided by the department
of justice that no change will be
made until then and that Jackson
will round out his four-year ten
It was at first decided that
Frank Patton, United States dis
trict attorney with wo more years
to serve on his four-year tenure,
would be asked to resign summa
rily but it is understood that the
attorney general has decided that
he will be given until January 1
to wind up pending cases or to
get them in such shape that they
can be turned over to his succes
sor and that he must step down
and out by New Year's.
It is generally conceded that
McKee Cooper will succeed Jack
son as marshal and Marcus Erwin
will be Patton's successor as (lis-:
trict attorney, both being th»»'
choice of Senator Bob Reynolds
who has endorsed them and asked
that they be appointed. The pat
ronage in the western district is j
conceded to Reynolds by Senator
It is understood here that Watt1
Gregg has already resigned as,
marshal of the middle district, ef-1
fective January 1. By that time
William Dowd, Senator Reynolds'
choice for the marshalship, is ex
pected to be appointed so he may
take over the office the first day I
of the year.
While it is expected that Ray
McCrary of Lexington, district at
torney for the middle district, will
also be asked to resign by January
1, what will be done about his suc
cessor is not known. This patron
age is conceded to Senator Bailey
by Senator Reynolds and if the
senior senator follows his wonted
custom in this matter, he will not i
make known his endorsement un- j
til a short time before the ap-j
pointment is made and then only !
after he has been asked by th._> j
attorney general to make a rec

Borah Says Settle
ment Sufficiently
(Copyright, 1933, United Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 6.— (UP) —
Full ";an?ellation of international
debts would have only a slight ef
fect on the general economic situ-,
ation, Senator William E. Borah I
of Idaho said yesterday in a state-,
ment telegraphed to the British:
United Press from Boise.
"I do not know the scope of J
debt negotiations," the senator)
said, "but if the negotiations are
confined solely to debts there is
little to negotiate.
"We have already negotiated,
reduced, adjusted and settled
these debts and certainly that set
tlement was sufficiently liberal.
On the other hand if debts are to
be considered as one of the inter
national problems standing in the
way of world recovery, such as
the money question, tariff and dis
armament. the situation would!
take on a different aspect.
"It is claimed that debts stand '
in the way of world recovery. I :
venture to say that if the debts|
were cancelled in full and t he,
other financial and economic prob
lems left unsolved, the change,
for the better would be slight in
"If we are to reduce or cancel.
these debts it must be because it
would bo in the interest of the
people of the United States to do
so and there can be no such in
terest if these other financial and
economic questions are unsolved."

More than 200,000 World war vet
erans ended their 11)33 convention
last night with election of officers
and adoption of resolutions which
struck at things considered un
In the closing sessions of the
American Legion convention the
veterans came out emphatically in
opposition to cancellation or re
duction of war debts. They went
on record against recognition of
Russia or extension of loans to
that country. They opposed any
efforts to put their country into
the world court or League of Na
They adopted a resolution op
posing any effort to spread Hit- (

government to fight crime and
communism, opposed any reduc

immigration laws, and adopted a
four-point program asking the fed
eral government to assume respon
sibility for the care of all war vet
erans not now able to finance
their own hospitalization.
The newly elected national com
mander. Edward A. Ilayes of De

that he will urge adoption of a

Third Yearly Appeal For
"Meat and Bread" Set
for October 22
Trustee Fruitland Institute •
Fruitland Institute, a Baptist
co-educational school, six miles
from Ilendersonville, is preparing
to go to the public with its annual
appeal for assistance in the way
of food for the present school
This will be the third annual
appeal made by the trustees in
order to continue the good work
started at Fruitland by the Rev.
A. I. Justice 35 years ago.
Although there is not the neces
sity for private school facilities
that existed when Fruitland Insti
tute was established because of
the lack then of public high
schools in this territory, the trus
tees and friends of this school are
not ready to abandon the work
because Christian training is re
garded a.s much of a necessity to
day as it was 35 years ago. Tui
tion and boarding expenses are
low and a small enrollment will
not take care of the expenses of
operation, therefore the school
will go back to those which it has t
helped for 35 years with its appeal
for "meat an'd bread."
M. L. Walker of East Flat Rock,
i trustee of Fruitland, was elect
?d by the recent sesison of the
Carolina association as chairman j

oeal to individuals, business men

Would Settle For
Less Than Half
(Copyright. 1933, United Prett)
LONDON', Oct. 6.—(UP).—
Tho British government has de
cided definitely against resuming
payment in full of war debt in
stallments to the United States
regardless of the outcome of the
present negotiations at Washing
ton, it was learned today from an
authoritative source.
Two alternatives to be offered
the United States, it was said-on
authority regarded as unimpeach
able, are:
1.—A lump settlement in gold
of not more than $475,000,000;
2.—"Token" payments of $5,
000,000 each every six months in
place of full instalments of about
The present capital value of the
British debt, according to Ameri
can treasury figures is $4,565,
470,000, and under the original
agreement Britain would have
paid a total of approximately
eleven billion dollars bv 1984.
Sir Frederick Leith-Ross, chief
economic adviser to the govern
ment and principal British war
debt negotiator, already has been
mstruted to make th^ Alternative
offers named, it was understood.
The lump sum payment, of
course, would include principal
and interest.
United Press information is
that bar gold has been purchased
over a period of many months by
an unknown buyer in behalf of
the British department and would
be remitted at once if a lump set
tlement were made.
The token payments would com
mence December 15. when the
next debt installment is due.
While no decison is irrevocable,
it was said that the offer was re
garded by the MacDonald govern
ment as definite.
WASHINGTON. Oct. fi. (UP).
—The Anglo-American war debt
talks began here yesterday in an
atmosphere that offered little hope
for satisfactory achievements.
While neither the British nor
the American negotiators ?poke.
officially, it was learned that each
side was impressed with the size
of its task and its limitations in
The opening conversation was
held at the treasury department.
It was brief, lasting only'30 min
utes. Trade and financial figure!?
bearing on Britain's ability to pay
its $4,000,000,000 debt were con
sidered, but the heart of the debt
problem remained unpierced.
Thereafter the British nego
tiators. Sir Frederick Leith-Ross,
representing the British treasury,
and Ambassador Sir Konald Lind
say decided, for the moment, to
desert the dreary tolk of dollars

atmosphere of a world series base
