I wtll behold thy face in righteous ness 1 8ha!l be satisfied, when I awake with thy likeness Psa 17: 15 A DEPLORABLE TRAGEDY. Th* full force and effect of the fatal rioting yesterday between Wash ington policemen and the radical wing of the bonus seekers cannot he deter mined at the moment. It may be this event will be the turning point and hasten the exodus of the former sol dier* from the national capital. On the other hand, it may arouse such a tidal wave of resentment among the ex-enrvioe men as to constitute merely the signal for more and greater trouble. It has been many a long day since Washington was the scene of rioting from any cause, to say nothing of a situation that resulted in bloodshed and which got beyond the ability of District of Colurfibia civil authorltes to handle and necessitated the calling out of Federal troops to take con trol. The capital was late yesterday. If Indeed it Is not now, on the verge of martial tow, a thing which Ameri cana have liked to consider beyond the ' pate of probability. Trouble, even if of a varying nature, that has arisen In other capitals of the world has now struck with a mighty impact at the very seat of our government, and arouse* * fear and a conjecture in th# minds of sane and sober citizens as to what might be a possible se quence. mg. The thing many Americans have feared ever s*.nce the bonus seekers began to assemble in Washington would happen has now come to pass. Trouble has broken out. with one veteran dead and many policemen and veterans injured, some of them seriously. An Investigation will certainly fol low In an attempt to get at the bot toga of the outbreak. But when the Uifter waa given police to make ar- T**ts if they encountered resistance 3n their moves to evict the ex-soldiers fnocn government property which it was desired to clear for the purpose of demolishing in preparation for new buildings it was to be expected that difficulty would arise. Yet the gov ernment had the right to the posses sion of its property, and its plan was thn more commendable, in view of thn fact that work was to be furnish e4 to unemployed by the beginning of « construction program. Reports available at the time this is written indicate that it was the radical left wing, or reds, who were Involved in the rioting. Walter Waters and his group of the veterans were no# Involved, so far as has been learn ed. The communist element, claiming credit from the start for instlgiatlng th* march on Washington, went there to make trouble. They were probably * more interested in that than in ac tually obtaining the bonus. The over throw of the government is one of tin purposes of the communists ip America, whether in Washington err *te*where. The country has not awakened as yet to the full extent of this menace, but it ought to le&rh th# lesson from the fatal rioting erf Thursday afternoon. There never waft justification for this invasion of the national capital by the former service sun. and time has demonstrated that fact. But, if firmness Is to be employ «d in dealing with the situation, thq communists group ought to feel the full force of such disciplinary mea sure* as the government may in stitute. A certain group in Congress, and particularly in the House, cannot en tirely escape a portion of the respon sibility of what has happened or may fcfippa*. inflammatory apaaehaa wan l made than by boom uithaalaats, who I urged th# veteran* to organize *sf to demand tan media to payment of the fownfflunt'* obligations to thade. While they did hat In so many toaida suggest the fcnarofc an Washington, it to believed by some that the Idea ori ginated from statements contained tn ( some of the speeches, esany es which may have been made with the double barrelled purpose of seeding nation wide notoriety and the gamering in of votes to maintain themselves In jobs in Washington at fat salaries. Apparently they gave little thought to the possible consequences of their ut terances. beyond these personal mo tives. What has happened In Washington , is a deplorable tragedy. Yet it was not wholly surprising nor altogether unexpected. The situation all the while has been more threatening than most people had known it to be. The best that can be hoped for as a result, now that real trouble has been experi enced. Is that it may sober the nation in the face of a genuine crisis, and that united, constructive effort shall be begun to find away out of the difficulty. TAKES BETTER JOB. Congressman John Q. Tllson. of Connecticut, is going to quit Con gress for a better job. And for that he is not to be blamed. At 66 he be comes weary of a thankless public oft ice he has held for 22 years, and deedes to go to work to make more rr.c.nev for his family. That is a com mendable ambition in any man. Doubtless Mr. TiLson shared the state ment our own Congressman Aber nathy made in the House last winter, and which he lived to regret, that he was worth $20,000 in private life and certainly ought to be worth his salary of half that much by representing his constituents in the national legis lature. But it is recalled that Mr. Tilson was a candidate for the Republican House leadership in the House when ' the Democrats organized it last De cember. but was defeated by Repre sentative Snell, of New York, who was chairman of the recent Repub lican National Convention in Chicago. That may be grating on Mr. Tilaon’s nerves, and may be a factor in help ing him to make up his mind to leave public life to the private practice of law. It is probably not too much for the country to expect of Its congressmen that men who go to Washington in that capacity ought to be capable of earning as much in private life as they receive in th# House or Senate. Many of them doubtless have that capacity, but many others do not possess it, which may account for *ome of the many bunglesome legisla tive jobs that are turned out In the course of a session. WILL LEND BILLIONS. President Hoover has been accused of playing a master hand at politics in the appointment of Atlee Pomerene, 'ormer Democratic United States sen ator from Ohio, as chairman of the reconstruction Finance Corporation. T t has been claimed that it would ;often public sentiment in Pomerene’s native state, and that it would make he corporation’s board really bi partisan and tend to remove it from •lolitios if possible. The charge is also heard that the appointment of the Ohioan, thus giving the Democrats a majority on the board, would re move from the President a large por tion of the responsibility for the hoard’s acts, and at the same time 'hrottle criticism from outside the ranks of Mr. Hoover's own party. Naturally, whatever the President may have done, it could and probably would have been construed as a po ’itical move, however altruistic Mr. Hoover’s motives may have been. | Whether any or all or none of these speculations have any basis in fact, there is pretty general agreement that the appointment was a wise and fit ting one, and that Pomerene has'thk ability to handle the job. Te is credit ed with a big hand in the framing of the legislation that created the Fed eral Reserve act during the Wilsop administration, when he was in the ■ Senate, which would give the new ' chairman a good background for the ! successful performance of his new r duties. Pomerene is GJ years old, and a very active man for one of that age, but no one is considered very old at that 1 stage of life these days. He is a mem r ber of one of the largest law firms in 1 his home city of Cleveland. His legal 1 career began in Canton, Ohio, in 1886. i and later became city solicitor and f prosecuting attorney. In 1910 he wap b elected lieutenant governor of Ohio, s and two months later was elected # United States senator, serving a dozeA i I years in the upper house of Congresd. - For the past eight years he assisted • in the government’s prosecutioh oi e the oil fraud cases, being associated .- in that work with Owen J. Roberts^ - .of Philadelphia, whom President! Hoover appointed to the United Btates d Supreme Court in 1930. He was backed, t- by Ohio for the Democratic nomlna i- tion for president in 1923, and last y month placed the name of Governor 1 e G—ig# White tt dfcte to iwilite*tw HENDERSON, TN C.J BMCY PBPATCH ffOTAY, J t) LY ' 29, IMI “• for the presidential race at the Demo cratic national convent ten la Chicago, refusing to switch to Ggvenfer tlofcee ▼elt on the fourth ballot when feeds e ▼elt supporters desired to Motes the aomlnatlton unanimous. Pomerene has long been in in one way or another, has had wide experience in the ef outstanding legal matters in the prac tice of his prefession as a lawyer. He will become a worthy successor to Charles G.

He will supervise the lending of Uncle Sam’s billion* for that purpose. TODAY TODAY’S ANNIVERSARIES 17*2—Isabella.

When properly directed, this is a strong character, diligent in jnir suit of irs aims,, intelligent in the di rection of Its resourcees, and often times winning by force of cartful, sysfiemlatic planning. , But it is same limes necessary that the energies be turned toward work and not allowed to dissipate themselves in contention- Interstate Agreement on Trucks Is Being Sought (Continued from Page One.) required fee. Under the present agree ment, no North arolina trucks .can make more than four trips a to Maryland. Pennsylvania; New jsn sey or New York withoat buying a Virginia license and a license in all the other states visited or traversed, thus making interstate hauling at more than four trips a month almost prohibitive. [ The Virginia truck owners, headed by C. Fair Brooke, of Richmond maintained that the proposed agree ment for eight trips a month would be of just as much benefit to North Carolina as it would to Virginia truck owners, since It would permit this State to ship Us raw materials and manufactured products not only into Virginia, but into all the other, statte with which Virginia has thjs type of reciprocity agreement, without im posing any additional cost upon tbs North Carolina truck owners. It wad also pointed out that there are more trucks and truck lines In this state than in Virginia and that this State is an important shipping oenter. The boards of directors of the two associations were addressed at a lun cheon meeting by Charles Ross, attor ney for the State Highway Commis sion. Mr. Ross told the truck opera*- : tors that the State wanted to be fair with them and would do all tt eould to cooperate with them, btu that eer aln regulations had to bfe obsermL ' The truck owners maintain that It 1 is impossible for them to operate owt | side of the state if they mwt bug 1 additional licenses in every state they traverse.

He said he carried a total of 322,500 insurance and that in case of accidental d'Hi’h the amount would be Increased to $35,000. W. P. Wr'tley, of a fingerprint expert, testified he ex amined French's automobile after the shooting and found a number of fin gerprints. He identified them as hav ing been left by Owens and said he was unable to identify one print. Counsel for Owens asked the court for permission to ~re-examine the jury when court opened today. The re quest was based on the fact that newspapers carried accounts of Owens' arrest on charges of grand larceny and highway robbery. Owens was arrested yesterday on the charge of the hold-up of a chain grocery store. In which STSO was taken, at the point of a gun on July 9. He also was charged with stealing an automobile valued at $350. Supplementary Budget* Os Schools May Be Cut (Continued from page One.) tention is focused on the supplemental budgets for the six months term. Last year the board did not fix any limits for the supplementation of the six months item budgets and ap proved whatever levies had been agreed upon by the boards of county commissioners and the county boards of education. Borne members of the board wanted to fix a limit beyond which the six months term could eat be supplemented and local taxes le vied, on the grounds that the State aupported six months term should be adequate for all the counties and that the taxpayers should not be required to pay out any additional taxes for the support of this term. But those favoring unlimited supplementation, won out. The result was that some counties supplemented the six months term more than 50 per cent and joined by local taxes half as much 'again as they received from the State. What action the board will take this year with regard to the supple mental budgets for this coming school year remains to be seen. It saay de cide to let the counties do as they please about It, as they did last year. But indications are htat, unless the counties hold these budgets down to a f CROSS WORD PUZZLE ] t| 21 3i 4ra J ~i~ — ~ ~3r !:l; !_J:_ *22 ' as ' "24 25 " "" _ z^r"aa ““ “' 2» “ T3"fT"3f *“33 |p ■*“ >a "3? *35 "J? •= ■%* 4? |p 45 4* 47 |p 4A ■ ■<MMw< ■■ ' ■' ' ■■■■■ ■«■»!

To date supplemental budgets have been received from about 80 counties and more are coming in almost daily— or as fast as the county school boards and the county commissioners can get together and approve the budgets. It is hoped that all the budgets will be in the office of Board of Equaliza tion here by about August 10, when the board will meet to examine them. An examination of the supplemen tal budgets already approved by the county boards and submitted here, show- that a good many items have been included in these budgets that really should not be. For instanoe, several of them carry items for the county accountants or the county trea surers. Yet there is no law which per mits extra levies to be made for these county officials under the guise of a school levy. In other budgets are pro visions for paying the entire salaries of the school attendance officers, al though the law provides that half the salaries of these attendance officers Madamoitelle From Armeatierco! shall come from the county general fund, with the Board of Equalization paying the remainder. In other words, it is evident that in some of the counties an effort is being made to include other than school matters in these supplemental budgets, in order to keep the county general fund levy down as low as pos sible. But it is not believed that the Board of Equalization will permit these Items that have nothing what ever to do with the six months school term to remain in the budgets. On the whole, however, these sup plemental budgets so far received are much smaller than they were last year, kith fewer supplements called for teachers' and superintendents’ salaries.
