Judge Declares Illinois Executive Made of Ordinary Clay By United Tress SPRINGFIELD, 111., July 26. Judge Smith today held that Governor Small is amendable to arrest on warrants charging embezzlement of state funds. The court said: "There is no king in Illinois and the governor is liable to arrest." The judge ordered a warrant to be issued and handed it to the sher Must Clean Up Going to the By United Press WASHINGTON, July 26. President Harding is opposed to the house taking a vacation until the tax bill is passed. Representative Mondell stated after a White House conference today. The ways and means committee has started work on the. bill. It is said the plan is W. P. Harrington, Nevada State After making a trip of inspection of the present and proposed routes over the Lincoln Highway between East gate and Austin with Chief Engineer. Cottrell and F. O. Booe of the depart ment of highways, the writer can see no reason why the present route should be improved, and many reasons why the proposed new location should be se lected and improved. Lest the foundar tion for the improvement of this fifty-two-mile section be forgotten, it may he well to state that the Lincoln High way Association has placed at the dis posal of the department of highways $37,000 to be applied toward the work. Lander and Churchill counties have each pledged $30,000 and the remainder of the amount required will be made up by state and federal aid.- The esti mated cost of the ultimate improvement of the project is about $448,000. How ever, the immediate construction of sev enteen miles of the distance and some maintenance work on the remainder 1 will provide at once ati excellent road tar superior to that now used by way i of Newpass. The present route goes through Al pine and Newpass canyon. The only habitation is at Alpine and the New pass canyon is the striking point for every stray cloudburst that comes along. The new route, less expensive to construct and maintain, will serve a greater population, pass through a great cultivated area in Reese River valley, and the scenery in the Desatoya range will compare favorably with that in the western part of the state. An other point in favor of the new loca tion is the fact that probably 90 per cent of the new road will be built on natural road material, while only 10 per cent of the present road is so located. Improvement of the present road would be an expensive matter and mainte nance would cost a great sum each iyear. PRtitat Opposes hw w raw Summer Won Los Apte' Inn highway iff. He also stated that a governor has no right to use the state militia for his personal protection. Governor Small's attorneys asked that the serving of warrants be delayed until September.

The committee's plan is to retain the Ameri can valuation as a basis in assessing custom duties, it is said. Consul. Lincoln Highway Ass'n. The only objection raised to the new Carroll Summit route, which will cross the range at an altitude close to 7,000 feet, is that there is a probability of snow blocking the road for a short period each winter. Owing to the fact that snow blocks nearly every summit for a portion of the winter, no great weight can be given the snow argument. When it is remembered that the trans state roads -will be used largely by tourists for the next few years, the snow condition will be a negligible fac tor. Whenever travel conditions re quire that roads be kept open all year it will be an easy matter, under mainte nance, to keep travel moving. A point that has been lost sight of by the few proponents of the present location is that Nevada must, above eveything else, reveal its cultivated areas. The view from car windows of overland trains has done more to damn Nevada in the eyes of the traveling public than any other factor. Roads should be built, whenever possible, so that they will run through irrigated and cultivated valleys in order that a mis taken idea may be corrected. Roads so located will also serve the country through which they pass and assist in development. The new location will call for a road down and across Reese River valley and across Smith Creek valley, both of which are under cultivation and capa ble of great development. The possi bili ty of cultivating large areas in these valleys by artesian wells is claimed Jo be greater than in any other section. This alone should be a deter mining factor, for any improvement that will directly or indirectly assist in developing the state is a permanent in vestment. What will probably become one of the most famous places on the entire route of the Lincoln Highway is the great dry lake about three mile9 north Sum rams tie fcl For ft British Note Suggests Change In Disarmament Assembly By United Press LONDON, July 26.

This old lake bed is about twelve miles long and from five to eight miles wide. Its floor is as level as can be conceived, and the in spection party made a speed ofsixty eight miles per hour over eight miles of the course. As a drawing card the lake cannot be over estimated, for every traveler, after traveling all kinds of roads, will be anxious to see how fast the old bus will run and enjoy the ex hiliration of unrestrained speed. It is thought that a circular course about twenty miles in length can be marked on the lake bed, which will make it the fastest and longest speedway in the worm, contrary to usual conditions on dry lakes, this old bed does not become impassable in wet weather.
