NAMES NEW OFFICERS J. T. Fain In Address, Ur ges That Work Be Car ried Forward The annual election of officeis of the W.C.T.U. organization of Hendersonville, at the meeting held Friday afternoon in the par lors of the Methodist church, re sulted in the selection of the fol lowing named ladies to serve dur ing the ensuing year: ^President, Miss Bessie Allen; vice-president, Mrs. Felicia Mc Swain; recording secretary, Mrs. J. T. Hill; corresponding secre tary and treasurer, Mrs. L. P. Sims Mrs. W. K. Shipp to have charge of the young people's de partment of the organization. Other business was given at-1 tention in the meetipg and the ses-j sion was concluded with a talk on : prohibition by J. T. Fain. The speaker said the W.C.T.U. j was due great credit for foresight I and courage in maintaining the | fight against the liquor traffic at; a time when many sincere friends j of prohibition were indifferent, believing that the adoption of the 18th Amendment had settled the issue for all time and it was no longer necessary to oppose the evils of the liquor traffic, legal and illegal. The W.C.T.U. has car ried on, keeping the organization intact, and ready at all times to promote temperance and to op pose the manufacture and sale r,f alcoholic beverages. The good women of the organization are due the appreciation of all ene mies of the liquor traffic, the speaker said. The speaker urged that the or ganization, locally and throughout the state, should now be prepared to unite with other friends of prohibition in a law enforcement campaign; should stress the edu cational program of prohibition; and use its influence to have both political parties in North Carolina nominate for the next election dry candidates for the legislature and to fill all law enforcement po sitions. The speaker advocated the or ganization of every county in North Carolina for law enforce ment. saying that a non-partisan organization should be formed in each county to uphold prohibition and to insist on law enforcement and to assist the law enforcement officers in making the prohibition and all other laws effective against crime and criminals. Mr. Fain was introduced by Mrs. McSwain, who expressed the deep appreciation of the W.C.T.U. for the stand that he has taken for prohibition, both in the Times News and by his active personal co-operation with the dry forces.

(Ui>) —President Roosevelt signed the newsprint, paper and pulp, hotel, food and grocery, and five minor codes before leaving for Georgia yesterday, the NRA announced last night. By executive order, he put a I test period clause in the news print and paper and pulp codes, making them subject to revision after DO days. This was done be cause unusually low wages are provided, it was explained. No I other alterations were made. WASHINGTON. Nov. 18. (UP) Distribution of work among thou sands of idle miners was demand ed by union leaders and civic rep resentatives from Pennsylvania anthracite communities at hear ings yesterday on the anthraciie i coal code. Major operators who united in (submitting the proposed code askpd thai their present contract with the United Mine Workers be continued until its expiration date. April 1, 1936. The contract provides a maximum 48-hour week and minimum wage of $4.62 for an eight-hour day. President John L. Lewis of the U. M. W. assailed the "disinclina tion" of the operators to spri>»d employment. Secretary-Treasurer Thomas Kennedy presented the union's specific proposals; a max imum six-hour, day and 30-hour week, with present wage rates to be maintained; and drastic re striction on low cost strip mining, which it was contended has forced many mines and colleries to shut down. Daniel F. Guinan, Mahonoy City, Pa., banker, Rev. Dr. John Pounder, representing the Panther Valley work equalization board and others presented more drastic proposals to aid jobless miners, including: A maximum work pe riod of 100 hours per month, min imum pay of $6 per day; scrap ping of the existing contract; pro hibition of surface operations; opening of closed mines and col leries and distribution of work on an equalized basis, on penalty of the state or federal governments taking over the mines. Charles Huber, chairman of the Glen Alden Coal company and of th<> industry's code committee, de clared in behalf of the operators that employment, could not be in creased until the industry was able to sell more coal and that anything which increased labor eosts would mean the loss of fur ther markets for anthracite. He said consumption was 40 per cent less than in 1923. (Continued on page three) Renew Campaign For Arms Accord I Berlin Will Like j PARIS. Nov. 18.

G. QUISENBERRY ] United Press Staff Correspondent LONDON, Nov. 18.—(UP).— King: George V added his voice to the criticism in England of President Roosevelt's financial policies yesterday. In his brief address convening parliament, the ruler of the Brit ish Empire indirectly attacked the Roosevelt "controlled currency" program when he declared that in his realm "confidence has been restored by the pursuit of a sound i financial policy." I The King's comment came on a: day when the United States dol- ( lar, after dropping steadily to the i lowest ebb since the Civil war, | shot upwards sharply on foreign tradings, closed here at 5.28 1-2 to the pound sterling. The price was 23 1-2 cents less than the preceding close. In the last three hours of trad ing. the pound fluctuated between $5.32 and $5.29, settling slightly below that at the close. Meanwhile, Dr. Walter Layton s publication, the Weekly Econom ist. scathingly attacked Mr. Roose velt's policy which has forced the dollar far below the old par of $4.86 to the pound markets, with cheap currency. The economist computed that, on the basis of respective price I levels in the United States and j Britain, the dollar at present is 20 i per cent undervaluated. The arti cle insisted that intrinsically, ster ling is Worth only about $4.30 and that the dollar's depreciation at present is sustained only by the flight of capital from the United States. Should that flight cease or be reversed," it said, "the dollar'* undervaluation could only be maintained through purchases by the American authorities of gold or foreign exchange on an enor mous scale. "The fatuity of a policy which may depend for its success upon < further large additions to Amer ica's already excessive hoard of ' gold is too obvious to need com ment." The economist concludes that Mr. Roosevelt's exchange manipu lation "ultimately will do more harm to America herself than , other countries." It advised Great Britain not to retaliate. , "We deplore Mr. Rooseveb's actions and intentions," it con cluded, "but the fact that he is j still suffering from the great illu sion of currency warfare profits to any of the combatants is no excuse for similar foolishness on our part," BULLITT TO BE AMBASSADOR TO RUSSIANS Litvinov Agrees To U.

BAIRD United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Nov. 18. (UP) The United States yesterday re stored diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union and laid the ba sis for friendship and commerce between the two great powers.

With the President was hi3 mother, Mrs. Sarah Delano Roose velt, Secretary Stephen T. Early, and Miss Marguerite Lehand, his personal secretary. On the way southward Mr. Roosevelt turned from a study of the events that bridged the 16 year gap of isolation between Washington and Moscow govern ments to begin work on his Thanksgiving proclamation, which he hopes to have ready for distri bution by Sunday night. Some friends were of the opin ion that as soon as he was settled comfortably at Warm Springs he would look further into the Cuban situation.

ROOSEVELT AT SAVANNAH MUNICIPAL STADIUM. SA VANNAH. Ga., Nov. 18.—(UP). "For world peace" was the most impelling motive that led to the recognition of the Soviet Union. President Roosevelt declared, ad dressing an audience of 40,000 people here today in commemora tion of Georgia's 200th birthday. The nation's chief executive pointed to the bridging of Soviet isolation as an act "in the spirit of Thomas Jefferson." The President digressed Ions enough to chide those disagreeing with the nation's monetary policy and added: "We cannot cure a chronic ill ness that beset us for a dozen years nor restore the sorial eco nomic order with equal simultane ous success in every part of the nation and in every walk of life. "It is our pioneering spirit, the understanding perspective of tha people of the United States which is already making itself felt among other nations of the world." He said the "saving grace of America lies in the fact that an overwhelming majority of Ameri cans possess two great qualities— a sense of humor and a sense of proportin." The President boarded a special train for Warm Springs shortly after his address and will remain there through Thanksgiving. HULL IS GRATIFIED WASHINGTON, Nov. 18.
