Rally Against Its
Repeal, He Says
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30.—OP)—

tb a dozen new amendments today,
some vital provisions, as the Senate

promised fight against repeal of the
inheritance tax. offering amend
ments to restore the inheritance and
gift tax rates now in effect.
Considerable support for the
amendment from western Senators
of both parties Is anticipated by
Senator Couzens. whose move would
not only block the proposed repeal
of tho inheritance levy voted by the
Senate finance committee, but would
make negatl the reductions In this
tax provided by the House.
With tho bill now cleared of all
controversial items, leaders were
confident tonight that. despite
threats of fights against several
vital rate reducing provisions, a
final vote could be obtained by Feb
ruary 10, which would assure tax
reduction by March 15, when first
tax Installments on 1935 Incomes are
due.
Approval was given today to a
provision setting up a permanent
Congressional investigation com
mittee. which would be directed to
Inspect Income tax returns anef In
vestigate administration of the in
ternal revenue bureau. At the re
quest of Senator Couzens, it was
agreed that the committee would
have to report all information dis
covered to congress.
This provision was described by
members of the finance committee
as a compromise on publicity of in
< ome tax payment*, now repealed is
the pending bill.

Dozen Chicago Women
Fall Victim to New
Variety of Moron.
By OWEN L. SCOTT.
(Copyright, 1926, Consolidated
Press Association.)
CHICAGO. Jan. 30.—A new va
riety of moron—an acid thrower—
who attempts to disfigure women
for the fun of It. is active on the
streets here.
Nearly a dozen women have fallen
victim to this strange mania and
yet not one of them has seen her
assailant. His motive Is as mys
terious as the attacks, which have
come in widely scattered parts of
the city.
The latest victim. Miss Lucille
Clark of Evanston, was caught In
the heart of Chicago's downtown
district.
“I was walking down Jackson
boulevard to work,” Miss Clark told
the police, "when a felt a burning
sensation on tho calves of my legs.
I saw that my stockings were turn
ing red in a number of little spots.
The burning got intense and soon
I realized what had happened. A
doctor’s attention was needed to
care for the wounds that resulted."
Besides sufferin the burns, the
victim also lost a dress and a fur
jacket which were eaten out by tho
acid.
Recently on the North Side a girl
lost a coat and a skirt tn a similar
attack. In previous ventures the
acid thrower ha* caught almost a
dozen women.
He strikes without any warning or
any provocation. Like tho mys
terious whlppers that showed up in
several parts of the country a few
years ago, he picks out a victim and
then does his dirty work. Because
the detims have never seen their
assailant, police are at & loss to
know how to catch the terrorist.

journed today until next Tuesday
with negotiations still deadlocked.
The two latest plans, one pre
sented by the miners and tho other
b. the operators, were voted down

As the operators and miners left

no ray of hojm was apparent that
the suspension would come to a

While the joint conference has In

received from all over the country,
nil that have been considered worthy
of discussion have been discussed by
the conference, voted down, recon

voted down again.
The table was clear tonight of any
proposition susceptible of being a
basis for negotiations and unless
something Is thought out to bridge
the gap between the two sides, there

the conferees ngaln assemble at

Indian Princess Memorial
Plans Are Held Promising
By EDITH B. BARROW.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30. The
west is beginning to come into its
own in the matter of preserving his
toric landmarks, ns congress Is con
stantly giving Its members the great
privilege of memoralizlng the heroes
and historic events of their locali
ties. With this end in view, Repre
sentative Charles E. Winter is do
ing his bit to get Wyoming its share
and Is preparing to toll hi u collea
gues something about the early
days of the "Wild and Wooly.”
One bill upon which favorable ac
tion is expected has been Introduced
by Mr. 'Winter, and should be of in
terest to all Wyoming women. This
is for the erection of a monument,
to Sacajawea, the famous Indian
woman whose history is so well
known. Her grave at Fort Wash
akie, near Lander, is unmarked save
for a small stone and plate erected
by the historical society. Represen
tative "Winter In his bill asks for
five thousand dollars in order that
a fitting monument shall be erected
for future generations. He also
hopes to have the two forts, Fort
Laramie and Fort Bridger, preserved
ns national monuments in ’ lew of
their past momentous history.
Senator and Mrs. Kendrick have
as their guests this week Mr. and
Mrs. Clarence Wulfjen. of Sheridan.
The Wulfjens are returning from
a visit with their nelce. Mrs. 8. Cal
vin Cumming, formerly Miss Eula
Williams, of Sheridan. Mrs. Cum
ming’s husband. Major Cumming, is
stationed nt Hayti, where Mr. and
Mrs. Wulfjen have been visiting.
Senator and Mrs. Kendrick will take
their guests to the White House re
ception on Thursday evening of this
week.
Miss Rosa-Maye Kendrick nlso
has a guest In the person of Horace
Rlnearson, of Middleton, Ohio, who
was a former classmate of hers nt
Ely Court, Greenwich, Conn. Miss
Kendrick has Issued invitations for
a luncheon this week In honor of
her guest, nnd also entertained for
her on Sunday last.
L. E. Armstrong, of Rawlins, has
arrived in Washington in order to
attend the hearing before tho inter
state commerce commission relative
to the "Junking" of the Saratoga-
Encampment railroad. Senator Ken
drick and Representative Winter al
ro appeared nt the hearing to aid
Mr. Armstrong In protesting against
the proposed abolishment of this
road.
Mr. and Mrs. P. J. Qucaley of
Kemmerer, are stopping at the Wil
lard hotel this week for a few days,
nnd greeting their many friends in
the capital. Mr. Quealey Is one of
the appointees from Wyoming as
delegate to the Sesqul-Centennlal Ex
position conference at Philadelphia,
and was in attendance at the pre
liminary meeting held last week in
that city.
Tho vice president nnd Mrs. Dawes
were the guests In whose honor Mr.
nnd Mrs. F. W. Mondell entertained
nt a formal dinner party last eve
ning. There were twenty guests.
With the annual meeting of the
D. A. R. but two months away, plans
for this important gathering are
growing apace. Although this is the
year for the regular election of of
ficers. interest in this phase of the
convention is sujrerceded by the in
terest manifested In the proposed
new auditorium. As the cost of this
undertaking will amount to consider
ably over a million dollars, numer
ous plans are being devised for the
rasing of this money. One of the
most unique as well as the most pop
ular of these, Is the plan to sell four
thousand memorial seats In the au
ditorium at one hundred and fifty
dollars each. These seats will be
memorials to friends or relatives of
the donors and as such, will be prop
erly inscribed with a handsome
bronze plate.
In addition there will bo flftj’ boxes
each presumably to tiro purchased
by a special state. Those will also
l»e properly Inscribed and dedicated.
Practically all of the states have
signified their (mention of securing
boxes, with the exception of one or
two —including Wyoming. As it is
not usual in such an event for our
state to be conspicuous by its ab
sence, it is hoped that at the com
ing convention, plans will have been
completed for the purchase of the
Wyoming box.
Two important society events are
scheduled for this week—the recep
tion at the White House in honor of
the members of congress, and the
Assembly Ball. The latter Is an an
nual affair which may be called a
colonial event since the costumes
will represent that picturesque per
iod In American history. Many of
the guests will be costumed to rep
resent some of their historic ances
tors. A feature of the ball will be the
dancing of the stately minuets, and
in one of these Captain Emory Scott
Ixind and Mrs. Land will take im
portant parts, appearing respectively
as General Winfield Scott and Mrs.
John Howland, wife of the John
Howland who came over in the May
flower.

SEEN IN RUMOR
OF OIL MERGER
Pan-American Linked
with General Pete
' in N. Y. Report
NEW YORK, Jan. 30.—OP)—The
Herald-Tribune will say tomorrow
that Edward L. Doheny, president
of the Pan-American Western Pe
troleum company, who left New
York today for the west after con
ferring three days with bankers and
oil men, will soon appear as the
guiding Influence In a far reaching
consolidation of western oil proper
ties.
Among the companies most promi
nently mentioned are the Pan-Amer
ican Western Petroleum company,
the General Petroleum company and
the California Petroleum company.
The Information available tonight
did not Indicate whether the negotia
tions involve retirement of Doheny
from the oil Industry In which he
has been a notable figure for many
years and the transfer of his one
remaining property of Importance,
the Tan-American Western, to other
interests or whether this company 1h
to be the keystone of the proposed re
alignment with Doheny as the dom
inating factor.
There have been reports that he
wished to dispose of all of his oil
holdings and retire.
The suggestion has been made
that the grouping may be so exten
sive as to embrace, besides the Pa
cific coast interests, some of the im
portant organizations in the mid
continent field. The banking house
of Blair and Company some time
ago effected a merger of the Barns
dall and Watte Phillips companies
and it wns reported at the time that
the Simms Petroleum company, the
Independent Oil and Gas and other
companies might bo brought Into
this alignment.
The fact that Blair and Company
figured in the purchase of control
of the Pan-American Petroleum and
Transport company from Doheny
and associates, and that this house
still has relations with Doheny has
strengthened the reports that the
Blair program for mld-contlnent con
solidations might be extended far
ther west.

SNOWDRIFTS IN

After battling deep snowdrifts in
which their car had been stalled, L.
D. Christenson, state commissioner
of law enforcement, and Unde"
Sheriff C J. Carter discovered a

not able to return to Casper until
Saturday, at which time Sheriff
Alex McPherson went out to assist
them.
The still w’ns in a dugout and was
supplied with water by pump
from the river. Evidently It had
been there a long time. With the
still, which was of about eighty-gal
lon capacity, the officers found 800
gallons of mash and ten gallons of
moonshine ns well as other material.
They set fire to it, since there was
no one to claim it and it could not
be used n« evidence.
News from Hoffhine’s Printing and

of all kinds of printing. The “gang” at the shop takes pride in giving
real service along with workmanship that pleases. If you want a
“blacksmith job of printing” don’t bring it to my shop. A mail order

to her letter and the following I?
representative of their views:
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I don't
think “Worried Blue Eyes” should
feel as she does about her past. For
I think a man should overlook a
misfortune that has come her way.
a i we all know that misfortune
will happen to the best of us. I
may be old-fashioned In my beliefs,
but I feel that it Is best to let the
past be forgotten. I believe in a
girl as she xM today and not what
she was yean» ago. So I think if
she can find a man whom she loves
and he loves her, her misfortune of
the past need not interfere with her
happy married life. RAYMOND.
I am glad to be able to say. "Wor
ried Blue Eyes," that young men
appear to be more liberal in regard
to this matter than they once were.
B. A.: Foolish girl! Your first
worries should be of your condition
and a name for your child. I
think you should take your mother
Into your confidence at once, for she
can help you more than any one else
will. You have forfeited the love
of this other boy for whom you long
and even If you weren't tn trouble,
it would be Idle to build hopes upon
the prospect of marylng a young
man who won’t be free for nearly
four years. Yes, tell your wother.
Unless she Is minus every vestige of
motherly love, she will not turn you
out, but will help you all she can.
Serious: I agree with you. No
woman should be so narrow minded
as to refuse to accompany her hus
band to decent shows when he en
joys them so much, and wants her
company. That is becoming a
fanatic about religion. Surely she
should realize that In carrying her
personal beliefs to such lengths ns
you describe she Is alienating her
husband's love and regard.
Blue Eyes: Such a sllv thing to
fall out over! There's nothing
wrong about an unmarried woman
taking her escort's arm; it even is
expected in some circumstances. He
owes you an apojogy for his rude
ness.
A Definition of “Petting. 1 '
The othe- day I asked what my
readers understand Is meant hy the
term "petting." This is what one
woman (married) says:
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I think net
ting Is a habit acquired by both
men and Women. In all of us there
is a certain amount of emotion and
affection. Petting is a mothod of
expressing emotion, Instead of affec
tion as it should be. Ido not believe
"petting" to be more than “kissing
and hugging." but I do believe "pet
ting” lends to basw emotion which
cause some of our best young people
to be immoral. I have been guilty
