"' - FIVE CENTS Harding to Urge Help for Marine "Now or Never" Is Platform of Executive and Advis ers in Regard to Ship Subsidy. Aid Will Be Insisted on By GRAFTON WILCOX. Omaha Dm Ld Wlra. Washington, June 10.-''ow or never" it the platform of President Harding and those who aupport him, in hi determined stand that congress must stay in session this summer to legislate for the relief of the Ameri can merchant marine. , The president now is more insist ent than ever that congress act on the pending ship subsidy bill to in sure the establishing of a privately owned and operated world shipping service and to take the government out of the tremendously expensive heritage of the war. Mr. Harding positively refuses to take for an a.nswer the excuse of house leaders called into conference on the subject that the issue is too big, too complicated and too condu cive to serious political trouble for consideration now in the midst of tariff and brwis turmoils on the verge of a national congressional campaign. Congress must not ad journ this summer until k comes substantially to the government's relief in its shipping dilemma, the president declares unreservedly, and his attitude is so firm as to indicate clearly that ifthe congress will not take action on' its own initiative, he will call it in special session to func tion on the issue just as soon as the anxious "members thijnlc they are freed to spend their time and talents in haranguing their constitucntics oa the subject of their re-election. Question Is Serious One. The matter is unquestionably one of the most serious governmental problems of the Harding administra tion. Developments in the situation indicate a downright tug-of-war be tween the executive and the legis lative branches of the government. The president, of course, does not care to engage in a contest with his party in the senate and the house and if it is possible to reach an agree ment which will obviate a quarrel he will be glad. But there seems to be no doubt that any such agreement will not embrace a compromise on the basis of postponing action of the ship subsidy legislation. Advocates of the shin subsidy bill contend that unless it is enacted be fore congress adjourns the adminis tration of the government's shipping interests will go to pieces. There has alreadv been a' strong hint from an administration spokesman that if the measure is not passed at the nresent concessional session the president will tell congress to re lieve the executive cf the manage ment of the great post-war mer chant fleet. He believes that with out the shio subsidy act in opera tion the effort to administer this fleet will end in failure. The experi ment of governmental ownership and control of merchant vessels has nroved to be futile, according to the administration's view; if relief is not afforded very soon, and that relief furnished by the passage of the ship subsidy measure, congress had better take over the management of the shipping board and the emergen- (Torn to rage Two.

P., if Terms Agreed On President Carl Gray Declares Move Would Be Logical One and Would Provide Transcontinental Route That Congressional Acts Passed in 60's Provided for. President Carl R. Gray of the l'n ion I'acific system issued a state ment yesterday commenting upon the recent decision of the United States supreme court which held il legal the control of the Central Pa cific railroad by the Southern I'a cific. Mr. Gray asserted that the Union Pacific is willing to buy the Cen tral Pacific if fair and reasonable terms can be agreed upon. In any case, he said, the Central Pacific should be operated as a part of a continuous railroad from Omaha to San Francisco, independent of the influence of any competing line. Confirms Bee Forecast The statement confirmed the ex clusive forecast by The Bee two weeks ago, relative to the probable results of the court decision. Mr. Gray said: Both the union Pacific and Central Pacific, constituting the first transcontinental line, were constructed- under the Pacific railroad acts of congress passed in the 60s, which provided for a continuous line of railroad from the Misouri river to the Pacific ocean, and provided further that they should be 'operat ed and used for all purposes of com munication, travel and transporta tion, as far as the public and gov ernment are concerned, as one con nected, continuous line.

Held Defense Insufficient The Union Pacific in that case sought to justify its control upon the ground that it had to buy the South ern Pacific in order to get control of the Central Pacific, and prevent discrimination against it by the Southern Pacific in favor of the tat ter's southerly line via New Orleans and Galveston. The supreme court held this de fense insufficient and pointed out that under the Pacific railroad acts, discrimination against the Union Pa cific, the owner of the line from Ogden to the Missouri rive, by the westerly end of the line from Ogden to San Francisco, would be a viola (Tum to Page Ten, Column Two.)

The crime to which he pleaded guilty demands adequate punishment." rossemcn Saturday had only Mind leads to follow in their hunt for Fred Brown, ihaminaii extraordinary and fugitive ile luxe. 1 he theft of a ford touring car from an unlocked garage at the farm of W. E. de Shaycl, lour miles north of Lincoln on the road to Fremont at 10:45 Friday night, caused them to believe Brown has fled Lincoln again. Fred YV. Lundsman, 50, Lincoln farmer, who was shot by mistake for Drown Friday night was reported singing Saturday. Attending sur geons said he had suffered so much loss ot blood that his recovery is problematical. Althouch Brown is believed to have been running rampant in Lin coln Friday night after fleeing to the capital city in a stolen automobile, residents of Benson and the territory west of the suburb still are inclined to believe he is in that vicinity. Evidences of Visit. The fugitive who has eluded posses for two weeks now is believed to have foraged at the farm of Al Anderson, five miles up the Little Pannio from Brown's shack west of Benson, according to the sheriff's office Saturday. Deputies were called to this farm Thursday night. They were toid by Anderson a mattress had been moved from one barn to the hay mow of another and that egg shells, einecr sjiaps. crumbs and other evl dence of a fugitive sleeping there had been found. The officers left late at night, but were recalled to the place at 6:30 Friday morning. Anderson said the man had returned and moved the mattress to a clump of bushes. Neighborhood Alarmed. "The spot is ideal for Brown,' said Deputy Sheriff Johnson. "He could go to the Anderson place from his shack through the deep bed of the creek. "Mrs. Anderson is so frightened she will not remain at the farm day or night. All farm houses in the neighborhood are lighted up all night through fear of the man." Lundsman was shot by Howard Morris, national guardsman, and Waldo Duigman. brother-in-law oi the divorcee who grappled .with f tfrown in Lincoln last Sunday, at the Oak creek bridge near Lincoln shortly after midnight.

Where does it "land" in reiulti .eeured on the "follow through" test? These are the real questions for the advertiser to answer for hinwelf. Newspapers -sometimes fall into the habit of talking loudly about volume of advertising carried, arguing this as a reason for more advertising. This is a "lazy" argument at best, for it evades entirely the questions of result secured and cost in proportion to results secured. It was but natural that the Associated Retailers arrived at the position where they desired to know the buying power of the circulations of the Omaha papers and the proportionate cost of advertising; i. e., "rate per 1,000 circulation." The Sunday Bee at present circulation and rates was found to be the best buy of the three papers. The Sunday Bee showed a lower "rate per 1,000 circulation" than any other daily or Sunday paper in Omaha. The "rates per 1,000 circulation" were as follows: Daily News, $0.0218 (highest) ; Sunday News, $0.0217. Daily Herald, $0.0196; Sunday Herald, $0.0197. Daily Omaha Bee, $0.0200; Sunday Omaha Bee, $0.0179 (lowest). The above figures show The Sunday Bee "rate per 1,000" 10 lower than any Omaha daily paper and 10 lower than any Omaha Sunday paper.
