(^P) At the hearing and investigation of the Alaska Reindeer problem ! yesterday, plans for the forraulat-‘, ion and construction of an organi- ! nation to handle the reindeer in- i dustry in Alaska on a co-operative ' marketing basis, was outlined to ' the committee by Leonard Bald win of New York, one of the sub stantial backers of the Lome a The key note of the plan is j local control thru responsible rep- I resentaiUves of natives with the J corporation furnishing boats for} the marketing of the deer. j George Goshai* at Alaska fox farmer and who has no connec- • tron with the (handling or selling 1 of reindeer, criticized the I#omen*3 ! and further said that the Baldwin J plan would be beneficial if the ' government .had supervision over the situation and the right hand ling thereof the natives may gain confidence if their interests are protected. However, he said it will be a slow process, because of previous friction. He, Geo Go- j shaw, said the industry suffered of, marketing meat in poor condition j But did not state whether the gov- ; eminent or the Lumen company or some other reideer shippers were responsible for shiping meat in poor condition. (Goshaw. who is interested in fox farms and knows nothing of the j reindeer business, but thinks 'he ! does, and can tell every other business man how to conduct his business; he w«as recently mar ried after a special flight of a plane from Nome to Sihishmaref ( when a notary public had to make the journey with special power j to make the marriage legal, after ( a separation had ocurred between tihe man and his wife whom George I Goshaw had hired as helpers at | his fox farm.) He says he estimated not more Chan five or six hundred thousand reindeer were in Alaska, instead of millions as estimated. Goshaw said that the Lomen herds number about twenty five thousand instead of two 'hundred and fifty thousand. Carl Lomen declared that Goshaw was unfamiliar with the reindeer business in Northern Alaska, and further denied that his company was unfair in its dealings with the natives. He said that his corpora tion reported annually to tihe Gover nor and its supervisors and that, the records of all its dealing were on Goshaw who is said to be person ally allied against the Lomen inter ests, said “nobody has done more to hurt” the industry than the Lo Senator 'Kendrick, chairman of the investigating committee, de clared today, that Baldwin’s plan was the most constructive presented before the investigation, so far. Goshaw also charged that the jomen herders attempted to drive l herd of native deer from the anges, thereby destroying the na ives good will. Goshaw also held hat the government was responsible or the deterioration among the jative herds. Baldwin’s plan is to divide Sew- j ird Peninsula coast territory into ive uatural grazing districts and hat all herds in each district be \andled a3 one: the owners sliar ng ownership and brauds. The Alaska Livestoook Packing Company, of which Baldwin is president, would prepare the deer for market, with the I,omen sales agents. Baldwin further 3aid that he termed the critldism* launched it the Lomens, was unwarranted and prejudiced. George Goehaw with his usual custom of finding fait, with the other fellow’s methods of doing business, said, the the Baldwin plan would likely benefit the na tives, but doubted that the natives would accept it. ION ROUTE TO (DEATH NEWCASTLE. Pennsylvania. Feb. 21. (/P)—Irene Schroedcr and W. Glenn Dague were taken on their last auto ride today, going half way across the state to the Rock view penitentiary where they will keep a “rendezvous” with death, Monday, for the killing of Corpor al Brady Paul, state highway pa trolman on December 19th, 1929. The route over which they were taken today was the same as when they last travelled over it, on which roud they killed the patrolmau. Heavily armed guards protected the little calvacade. Mrs. Schroed er smiled as she came from the prison here to take her place in the car. She had earlier given way to hysterics when she was told that the governor had refused to commute her sentence. Dague, 'himself, was quiet and serene, ap parently. Hospital Notes Jack Dowd, the well known el ectrician and baseball fan, who re cently injured his leg in the first ball game, is improving daily.

Second—A separate appropriation from the road funds for airplane landing fields, and the building of a landing field at Nome sufficient ly large to accomodate the trans pacific and tri-motored planes. Third—More funds fo-r the build ing of roads and trails in the Sec ond Division, instead of only main tenance needs on existing roads. Fourth—Telephoo and summer mail subsidy on the Nome—St. Mich ael and Nome—Kotzebue routes via ocoan going vessels. Fifth—The setting aside of a tract of land at Serpentine Hot Springs, the building of a large building and to be maintained by appropriate funds and maintained by the territory lor the benefit of the pioneers and others in this sec tion who would take advantage of the springs, instead of going to the Pioneer Heme. Sixth—An extensive jsurvey of the waters of Bering Sea for fishing purposes. Seventh-—Aa appropriation by the territory of Alaska, say $50, 000.00 to be divided between the four divisions, to carry on an ad vertising program of each of the four division in Alaska for a per iod of two years, and expended thru the Governor and the Chamber of Commerce, with the object of in teresting capital to develope the natural resources of each of the four divisions. | Eighth—.\n appropriation suffi cient for two years as an aid to prospectors four times the present appropriation. This is one of the vital needs of the country. One good strike In any of the four div isions will more than repay the j amount appropriated, and will go i along way to ‘help in the finding of new' pay streaks. Ninth—Legislation that will mat erially assist air-mail delivery not only to recognized business cen ters, but to remote sections, in cluding Pt. Barrow, along the coast from Nome. Tenth—A more active campaign for the extension of the jetties on the Snake River Harbor pro ject. witih a suggestion that It might be more feasible to carry on operations during the wintei months than in summer, thus avoiding the storms on the coast and causing the completion of same in sihorter time. From a study ol climatic conditions during the past 30 year* at Nome, the publisihei of the Nugget is willing to go or record that more substantial wori oan be carried forward during the winter season than what has beer •accomplished in We short sum •mer season with coastal storms •and we would lifce an effort to b< made In this direction.
