During the trial which lasted several days, niuch of the matter formerly brought out in the Arnot case was j rebashed. From the unanimity of ! the verdict, it appears that Evered had little grounds for bringing suit, ] but the case cost the county and j Hocking a lo of money.

But the mature ideas of grown ups on the essentials of happy, fit- j ting ways to spend Christmas are quite as interesting. Two replies that are typical are given below.

You'll REDUCED INCOME TAXES YIELD BIGGER REFUNDS Although income taxes collected during 1932 were considerably less than those collected in 1931. the government is making refunds of $80,583,564 as compared with $69, 476,930 in 1931. The increase was due partly to a supreme court de cision holding that the federal gov ernment could not tax the incomes of incompetent Oklahoma Indians from oil land rights. The largest refund was $2,960, 000 to the United Fruit Company of Boston. The Lehigh & Wilkes barre Coal company of Pennsyl vania got $2,189,000; the Botany Worsted Mills of Passaic, N. J., $1,466,000. and the National Ani line and Chemical Corporation ofj New York City $1,455,000. The es täte of Lilly Busch, of the beer making family, got $416,626; that of William Dupont $304,526. that of William K. Vanderbilt $475,745. The Union Pacific drew 8569,949. the Northern Pacific $583,815 and the Great Northern $546,259. The movie industry was well represent ed in the refunds, Douglas Fail banks, Ramon Novarro, Conrad Nagel, Louis B. Mayer, Charles Rogers, Irene Rich, Mrs. Adolph Menjou, being among the number getting refunds. Among the thousand or so Okla homa Indians getting tax refunds are Red Corn, Strikeaxe, Vest, Tom Big Chief, Ida Bighorse, Cora Big Elk, Eva Bean and Bacon Rind. Little A. A.

The dull aohe of waiting for word from the gas-filled tomb was sharpened by reality Monday as the message came from below that 27 more miners had been found, dead. It means that not one of the 54 trapped Saturday by the blast 700 feet underground -would come out alive. Stretcher bearers brought 12 bodies to the surface Sunday. Moweaqua, not daring to hope, sent down its relay of rescue crews to worm their way through perilous falls of rock, under twisted timbers that might fall at any moment. Fresh air, pumped in by the res cuers as they burrowed along the south the "T" nel, met a barricade and blew back upon the faces of the sweating crew. A barricade ahead perhaps meant there were living men be yond it, saved from the deadly gases. There was no time for clearing a way through the shambles. Res cuers could only wriggle and squirm on through the dark bore, risking life. Then hope vanished in the lethal air. The rescue workers came up on a body, then another and anoth er—27 were counted; all dead, not of the flames that snuffed out the lives of the 12 found at the inter section of the "T" Sunday, but dead of after-damp.

One of the ill-fated was a boy substitute—his first day umL-r ground. EXTRA SESSION SEEMS CERTAIN Washington, Dec. 26.—Reports that President Hoover would not approve Democratic sponsored farm relief and beer legislation at this session Monday led Speaker Garner to express the personal opinion that prospects of avoiding an extra meeting of the new con gress were "not bright". The Democratic vice president elect said he was "hopeful that an extra session will not be neces sary," but that "if one may judge by reports and interpretations in newspapers everywhere, from the executive and his close advisers, the prospects do not look bright to me personally." On the basis of these reports, Garner said he was doubtful wheth er the chief executive would ap prove such measures if they were passed at the short session. "The house agricultural commit tee is planning to submit a farm bill for action shortly, and the beer measure is pending in the senate, having already been approved by the house." Little '33 To Be Ushered In Right The New Year dinner and dance by the Sherman Cafe promises to be a happy occasion when decrepit and limping old '32 will be handed his hat and shown the back door.
