a doren. Besides, their extremity has
become urgent. They were fed after a,
fashion so long as their organization i
lasted. Today they are starving.
The situation is not of a sort to
make the capital or the countryside
nnd small towns surrounding it feel:
very comfortable.
All this Police Chief Glassford. who
sough to the last against extreme
measures, clearly foresaw. When fi
i nally overruled he said, “The army,
is coming to put these veterans on
the street. They will still be on the
police, but not so well handled." ,
, The administration's policy in fore- !
i ing the bonus crusaders from their j
| quarters cannot conceivably be attri- !
buted to anything except determina- |
j tion to end the siege no matter what j
] the cost. It is true that the veterans j
I were technical trespassers on govern- :
! ment property. Still it hda been va- |
cant for months and the desire to |
■ begin building operations on it did 1
not develop until the prolongation of
. the veterans’ stay became a seriously
' sore subject.
i In short, the veterans’ campaign of
harassing congress for bonus legisla
; tion was viewed somewhat indifferent
ly. but when the lawmakers adjourn
ed and the sojourners' attention was
( focussed solely on the WWhite House,
the resolve of the authorities to rid
the vicinity of fthem quickly cry
| stalized.
j Glassford’s opinion of the program
adopted may be judged from a sen-
I t»-nce in his statement issued during
I actual progress of the fatal riot, caus
| ed by action to evict the B. E. F.
i "I handled the situation for nearly
two months without bloodshed.” Chief
] Glassford said.
Indeed, the veterans cheered the
' chief during the riot itself.
Glassford is said, however, to be in
I extreme disfavor 'with his superiors
for failure to break up the conccn
! (ration in its incipiency.
! The political effect of President
Hoover's resort to military strength
disperse the B. E. F. is a keenly con
-1 troveited question in official Wash
' tngton.
There have been signs that the
bonus crusaders have been losing
much in public sympathy since con
gress left, when many folk appear to
have thought the proper course of
the veterans was to return home and
! , W L°. 1 k for candidates more to their
j liking. Considerable comment is heard
! now. however, to the effect that the
| manner of their expulsion may turn
I pu , b l ,c sentiment again in their favor.
Washington crowds at all events
watched the troops with many ex-
I Passions «f indignation as soldiers
I drove the campers, several of them
I carrying small children or followed
j by their wives from their city of pup
i tents, dugouts and packing cases, to

j ,he other hand the suggestion
I is heard that a show of vigor In deal
j ing with emergencies is just what the
present administration needs to win
, the approval of the country.
It also is not to be forgotten that
j numerous prophecies were made to
: ward the end of the last congressional
session that not much time would
elapse after adjournment before more

There is considerable wondering

j will come heie, but the time of his
visit was not announced.
Meantime, police officials learned
that preparations were being made by
communists to hold a mass meeting
jin entral park Mayor Mc

but that if any speakers spoke ‘‘out
of turn" he would pull him down
! with his own hands.
J Police of Washington, D. C., were
in Johnstown and sought United

Washington. Aug. I.—(API A
' hands-off policy toward the bonus
i seekers encamped near Johnstown,
Pa., was decided upon today by the
National Red Cross- while the Dis
trict of Columbia grand jury began
an investigation to fix responsibility
for the riots last Thursday in which
one war veteran was killed.
Jamrs Fieser. vice chairman of the
Red Cross, after a conference with
officials, said no aid would be gtv4n

Raleigh. Aug. I. < APT —More than
500 game birds, the first distribution
of the season, were sent out last week
from the State game farm at Aahe
boro. State Game Warden Charles H.
England said today.
The consignment of birds numbered
300 ring-neck phi-asants, 150 quail,
and 60 wild turkeys. Ail of the game
birds. England said, were sufficiently
developed to assure the best survival
in new surroundings.
Distribution of the new stock was
made in widely separated sections of
the Slate, following the practice of
j giving every possible benefit to each
; section. Th game officials have found
1 that more effective stocking can be
1 done by concentrating distribution of
i new game over half the State one
] year and the other half the next and
j are following this program, he said.
Allotments of game birds were
made last week to game refuges in the
| following counties: Cabarrus. Stanly.
Montgomery, and Union. Western
North Carolina refuges located on
national forest areas in the mountain
| section got some also, as did places
in Dare, Cumberland, Hoke and Rob
eson counties the Holly Shelter State
refuge and public shooting ground
and the Roaring Gap and Sauratown
Mountain refuge were also stocked.

“We have just received an 11-page
memorandum from Washington ex
plaining the law and setting forth
what must be done and what must
not be done in this Federal aid emer
gency highway construction, and we
cannot make our plans until we have
carefully studied and digested this
memorandum," Jeffress said. “It con
tains a' number of new provisions that
we had not heard about previously.
We must now pass the contents of
this memorandum along to all the
contractors that expect to bid on the
projects in this State, so that they
can make allowances for them in
mittlng their bids.

be used as extensively as possible, ln-[
stead of tractors and machinery. This
means that where contractors for
i nrarly figured their costs on the basis
of using tractors, steam shovels and*
motorized equipment, they must now
re-figure their costs on the basis of I
manual labor and horses and mules.
For the government wants hay burn
ers substituted for gasoline burners."
Only Local labor.
An6ttier* requirement of the law gov
erning this emergency highway con
struction is that only local labor shall
be employed and that first prefer
ence shall be given to ex-service men
with dependents and to the most de
serving and needy of the unemployed
in the various communities. The
memorandum from Washington sug
gests that the welfare and relief of
ficials in each community be consult
ed by the various contractors and
that they employ most of their labor
from lists of worthy unemployed sub
mitted by these officials.
"Those who are employed by the
various contractors on these Jobs
must be certified as actual residents
of North Carolina and of the com- 1
I muni ties from which they corns, ao
that it will be impossible for the
‘floaters’ to come into this State from
other states and get jobs which the
law says shall go only to bona flda
North Carolinians," Jeffress said.
I The highway commission must still
fix a minimum wage that must be
observed by the contractors doing
work in this State. An effort will be
made to keep this wage high enough
to make it a fair wage for the work
ers and at the same time to keep it
low enough ,to make it possible for
bo use manual labor and
mu Ids and horses to advantage, *s
compared with the cost of mechaniz
ed construction, Jeffress said. (The
commission hopes to’ decide upon the
various wage scales for skilled as well
as unskilled labor within the next
few days.
Because of the many different re
gulations in the law that must be ob
served. and because of the require
ment that two shifts of men must be
used, with each shift working only
three days, or not more than 3D hours
a week, the contractors will have to |
l use a great deal of care in making!
> up their bide. This is one of the
1 reasons why it has been <MBded not
to call for bids until Adgust 16 in
■ stead of August 10.
"In spite of all these regulations
and government red tape and the re
quirement that all projects must be
approved by /the U. S. Bureau of
Roads In Washington before con
struction can go ahead, we are going
to try to act as fast as possible." Jef
fress said.
