They entered a plea of not guilty. They are Felix fo J. Birbiglia, Charles Zalenka, Jr., and Robert Burns. The first two named confessed to plotting Mrs. Neason's death for her diamond rings, valued at $6,000. Birbiglia ze did the shooting with a revloyer handed him by Zalenka. Mrs. Neason was in an automobile driven by Burns, in a lonely stretch of Orleans Canal Road. J. Warren Doyle, attorney for Birbiglia filed a motion to quash the grand jury indictment, mak ing the point that it was returned L by only nine members. Judge Baker, acting on a recent Supreme Court decision, overruled the mo. n tion.' Mr. Doyle told the court it would be impossible for him to be o ready for trial by May 18. He p said he would be unable to pre- c pare his case by that time. Dis trict Attorney Luzenburg refused to relinquish this point and the date set remained. m None of the acceused displayed h the slightest emotion. Their faces were impassive as they faced the court. Birbiglia, who previously t related the cold-blooded manner in which he killed his victim, -eemed a trifle defiant. Ulio J. Burke is attorney for b Burns and Zalenka. He made no comment on the early trial of his clients. ct Notice.

Before beginning to can get a Le supply of new rubbers and tops. r. Never use old rubber in canning as there is more risk involved ig than the rubbers themselves Cc Ly would cost. When buying rub so i. bers insist on good ones, the pr is heavy red ones are the best. If of t. canning in tin order cans now.

Washington, May 7.-A tax on bachelors by states in need of cash Swas suggested today by Actuary SMcCoy of the treasury depart ment. McCoy is an expert at de. Svising new ways of raising money for the federal government. SFrance now is ready to tax bachelors, he pointed out. I From $40,000,000 to $100,000, 000 a year could be raised in the United States by a bachelors' tax, according to McCoy. Approximately 10,000,000 men between 44 to 20 now are holding fast to a state of single blessed ness in the United States, census Sbureau reports indicate. The number is growing constantly. An annual tax of $5 could be paid by most single men without much sacrifice, it is believed. , "The federal government might have difficulty in laying a bache lor's tax," said McCoy, "alto. gether whatever could be raised in this way now would be wel come. The federal government is searching for new and more fair methods of taxation." It is pointed out that a bache lor's tax capable of raising $40, 000,000 would go far in assisting the federal government to raise money to pay the proposed bonus General News In Brief.
