CORDELL HULL BANS BOYCOTT Outlaws It Both As Econ omic And Political Wea pon, At Home, Abroad By HOBART C. MONTEE United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. SeDt. 19 (UP) —Secretary of State Cordell Hull yesterday outlawed as a political weapon the economic boycott which framers of the League of Nations conceived as a fearsome bogey to compel nations to ob serve treaty obligations. Hull said the United States, as a matter of general policy, could j not subscribe to the use of the economic boycott, either as a po litical or trade union weapon. He said that past experineces had shown that the United States would lose $5 in decreased ex ports for evefy dollar's worth of damage inflicted upon the power against which the economic boy cott was invoked. He explained I this was because the United States [ customarily exports more goods than it imports. With this statement Hull laid to rest efforts extending over a period of years to have the Unit ed States invoke an economic boycott against one or another foreign power. He also served warning to certain private inter ests and individuals in this coun-1 try who have been advocating the | boycott that, economically, they would be cutting off their noses to spite their faces if their pro posals were carried into practice, i An economic boycott against Japan was actively sought by a number of college professors and ! private organizations in this country three years ago as a means of compelling Japan to ob serve her treaty obligations with regard to China. At that time Japanese troops had invaded Manchuria, in what was regarded here as a violation of Japan's ob ligations as a member of the League of Nations; of the nine power and four power treaties and the Briand-Kellogg anti-war pact. Henry L. Stimson, then secre tary of state, was known to have toyed with the idea for a t;me and there was considerable talk in Geneva that the League of Na tions might seek a universal eco nomic boycott against Japan as a treaty violator. The suggestion (Continued on page four) J. F. Cody Sued In Florida Court Defendant Brother Of The Late Buffalo Bill KISSIMMEE, Fla., Sept. 19. (UP)—Trial of a $25,000 dam age suit against J. F.

BIG SUPPLY OF FOOD CANNED Pellagra Found In 27 Fam ilies In County; Diet Instructions Given The report of Mrs. Nelle Dot son, emergency home demonstra tion agent,, for August showed that her department had served 551 white and 1$8 negro fami lies. A total of 32 demonstra tions were given 659 visits were made, 27,958 quarts were can ned, and approximately 106 pounds of vegetables and 162' pounds of fruits were dried. I Twenty-siven families were found ! to be suffering from pellagra, j 19 of which were given instruc-f tions in food selection. These! monthly reports require a writ- j ten narrative and the following by Mrs. Dotion shows some of the problems, not only of her de partment, but the local emer gency relief administration. The canning department last i week reported that 5791 quarts of fruits and vegetables had been > canned by 106 families visited! by the canning leaders during the week. Apples took the first place with 1570 Quarts. Peaches followed and next in order were tomatoes and beans. Twenty one varities of fruits, vegetables and preserved goods were em braced in the list. Mrs. Dotson's report on her workin the county has been pre pared as follows: 1.—I am following Miss Turn er's plan of county organization. The county is divided into six teen communities. The workers visit these in rotation checking on the canning being done, possi bilities for future canning and offering suggestions and help if needed. We call on each family at least once a month, oftener if! possible. Some of our families' are in remote mountain sections and can only be reached by walk in* several miles. I have only added one leader to my group since taking over the work. She was selected from our relief roll. She has had practical experience in canning and is proving- h very capable canning leader. One of oifr difficulties is the small amount of mileage allowed the canning leaders.

DEMOCRATIC VOTE GAINS IN WISCONSIN Republicans Run Close Third To New Party Candidates In State LA FOLLETTE TARGET TO WIN OUT, IS BELIEF MILWAUKEE, Sept. 19. (UP) —The voters of Wisconsin, who abandoned rock-bound Republican allegiance two years ago to help elect President Roosevelt, today affirmed their faith in the Demo cratic New Deal, incomplete re turns from yesterday's primary indicated. Scattered but representative tabulations showed the Democrats under Gov. Albert G. Schmedeman to be leading the Republican and new-born progressive parties in the total number of votes cast. Schmedeman—chief target of the LaFollette progressive—was assured of renomination on the Democratic ticket on the basis of early returns. The Republicans, although ap parently failing to reclaim the state from the Democrats, sought to heap vengeance upon the pro gressives who bolted their ranks after 40 years of attachment. The G.O.P. was running the new party a close call for second posi tion in both the gubernatorial and senatoiial votes. The new party, springing from the left wing of the Republican party, was established by the La Follette brothers, whose family dominated Wisconsin politics for more than a quarter of a century. It was designed as the basis of a new national political alignment attracting the liberals of both old parties. Former Gov. Philip F. LaFol lette, trying to marshal the liber als of the state and unite them against the conservatives, was without formidable opposition for the progressive gubernatorial nom ination. Likewise his brother, Senator Robert M. LaFollette, Jr., had no contest within progressive ranks in his candidacy for return to the senate. Howard T. Greene, Genesee Depot dairy farmer and choice of the state organization, led the Re publican field for governor. John M. Callahan, former Dem ocratic national committeeman from Milwaukee, led the five can didates for his party's nomination to oppose Senator LaFollette in the November election. John B. Chappie, Ashland edi tor, was unopposed for the Re publican senatorial nomination. Returns from 1267, or nearly half of the 2915 precincts in the state, for governor, were: Democrat — Schmedeman, 62, 888; William B. Rubin, 14,155; Richard F. Lehman, 1,628. Republican — Greene, 36,701; former Gov. Fred R. Zimmerman. 22,961; James N. Tittemore, 4, 724. Progressive—former Gov. Philip F. LaFollette, 58,022; Henry 0. Meisel, 3,132. (Continued on page four) 3—EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIARY PROVISIONS WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION This is the third of a aeries of six articles reviewing thej history and contents of the U. S. Constitution, in observance of "Consti tution Week" and the 147th anniversary of the Constitution's birth, Sept. 17, 1787. THE Constitution of the United States divides the government into three important branches, each devised to be what has been termed a "check" and a "balance'' to the other two. As against the legislative, therefore, stand the executive and the judiciary. Article Two defines powers o* the president and how he is to be chosen. The manner of choice has been changed by amendment, but the original method was by means of electors chosen by the various states. The electors were to vote for two candidates, the one receiving the greatest number of votes, if a majority, becoming president, the second highest, vice-president. Otherwise, the House of Representatives was to choose the ■ president from the five highest. Article Two also makes the president commander-in-chief of the army, navy and militia of the states, apd gives him power', with ' sensatorial consent, to make treaties, and appoint mkjor officials ^under him. "•»>.. r; j ■ Article Three vests judicial powers in a supreme court and such' inferior courts as Congress may establish. It determines the scope of federal jurisprudence, provides for trial by jury, and defines treason. Under Article Four, equal rights are assured as among the citizens of all states, provision is made for return of escaped slaves, and for return of escaped prisoners. Another section anticipates admission of new states into the ! Union, and another guarantees to all states a republican form of government and protection from invasion. Article Five provides for amendments to the Constitution. Ar ticle Six establishes supremacy of the Constitution -over all other laws of the land and forbids any religious test for holding office. It also accepts responsibility for all public debts of the Confed eration. The Sixth and last article provides for ratification of the Con stitution by nine of the 13 states, to make it effective.

BANKHEAD OUT TO LIFT ALL COITON TAXES Would Extend Tax Re lease To All Of Crop Harvested This Year Congressman H. P. Fulmer, representing the second South Carolina district yesterday tele graphed Secretary Wallace from here, asking that the farmers be permitted to sell or to secure loans on ail cotton tax free, be cause of the low estimated pro duction figure. It is below the 10,000,000 bale figure provided in the Bankhead act. Fulmer took the position that the allotments are unfair in many instances, and that many farm ers would not be able to meet their obligations unless they were allowed to sell, tax free. JASPER, Ala., Sept. 19. (UP) —Senator John H. Bankhead, author of the Bankhead cotton control act, last night urged that allotments oj cotton that may be sold without? taxation be increas ed to cover all the crop harvested this year. The senator said he would con fer Saturday with Secretary of Agriculture Wallace on this sub ject. He pointed out that the total (Continued on page four) Edward Brenner U.N.C.

Young, president of the Federal Laboratories, Inc., of Pittsburgh, tear gas makers, to day told the Senate munitions in vestigating committee that his company paid an active United States naval officer in 1933 to inspect the bombs sold to Hon duras. Yesterday he testified ne naa shipped tear gas to National Guard units "all over the coun try," but added, "I don't know j whether it was all used." He said an airplane carrying i 400 pounds of gas to the National Guard in Rhode Island—scene of j strike riots—was forced down i and' guardsmen were compelled to use rifles. "If our plane had got through," Young said, "the loss of life in Rhode Island probably would have been averted." "What effect would this gas have upon strikers suffering from malnutrition?" asked Sen. Homer T. Bone. "Far less effect th$n lead bul lets," Young replied. , "I wasn't asking for your opin ion on the merits of the strike," Bone said. "I want to know if this gas would make a man phy sically sick from lack of food, sick for a long time." "I don't think so," Young said. Testimony revealed that Fed eral Laboratories, Inc., were per mitted by an unnamed Cuban colonel to see official United States quotations on guns and 'munitions so the private firm could underbid the government on 'sales to Cuba. Young testified he bought $300 worth of flare guns from a Phila delphia man named Sedgley, and Senator Arthur Vandenburg said the man was known as "Sidewalk" Sedgley because he sold machine guns on the streets. Earlier testimony revealed that last month the state department warned American munitions man ufacturers that shipments of air plane equipment to Germany might be a violation of the Ver sailles treaty. Nye said he had evidence that in April the United Aircraft Co., and its affiliates had six agents in Germany soliciting business.
