Reserve By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON May 1 Senator Carter Glass break with the administra tion in the course of the recent de bate concerning currency Infla tion appears to have gone below the superficials of any merely tem 1 porary policy and involved the very essentials of the national financial j organization The Virginia senator in short evidently senses a threat against the Federal Re serve system of which he considers himself the founder and to which he Ja devoted in every fiber of his being There is not in fact anything to indicate that President Roosevelt who disavows a particularly deep knowledge of banking regards the Federal Reserve setup otherwise than as an established institution which he accepts accordingly sub ject to modification perhaps but as sufficiently satisfactory in its main outline Secret Bill Nevertheless hostility toward it does exist in the ranks of those who are most prominently identified with the Inflation program Indeed it ex ists generally among monetary stu dents of the old W J Bryan school and when they think the proper moment has arrived Senator Glass is perfectly right in his apparent be lief that they intend to uncover it The truth is that they have a bill not yet widely advertised but in troduced some time ago by Senator Nye of North embodying their ideas ready to push in due eeason Under the Nye measure anyone a ceding Jfjiad forlegitimate Tbusi securJtieSj fbrTtheta directlyto tSe government and receive currency in return based orivthe securities The theory is that credit control thus Would be taken entirely

girl 12 hours after the body of 6 year old Nadine Vogel Love had been found spurred far mers and officers to an intensive hunt of wooded areas near here to day Searchers expressed the opinion the man who seized Mrs Nellie Black near a farm home Sunday night might be the kidnaper and slayer of the Kanras City Kans school girl who disappeared April 20 The body with the childs jump ing rope knotted about the neck was in a desolate wood about half a mile from the scene of the at tempted abduction of Mrs Black A cursory examination by the Wyandotte county coroner Indicat ed the child had been attacked Mrs Black reported the man seemed to rise right up beside me He seized her and ran Her husband saw her plight and ran to her aid ag did others at the home The man fled into dense woods Bloodhounds were put on the trai at dawn Paul Hindi Acquittal May Be Due toJurys Finding Gravel in Wifes Shoes ound Not Guilty Discovery Breaks Up Deadlock Paul Hinch probably owes his acquittal to the fortuitous discovery the jurors that the stockings of Mrs Hinch had been badly torn and larticularly to the fact that sand and gravel were found imbedded in he soles of her shoes This they de ided was almost conclusive evi lence the woman jumped from the automobile in which she and her usband were riding the night of he tragedy This discovery marked the turn ng point in the deadlock between urors that lasted through the night and made it appear for hours as if disagreement would result Found Not Guilty Hinch was found not guilty of the murder of his wife Marion Hinch iy a jury which returned a verdict at 11 oclock Sunday morning The fact that the shoes after all the handling they apparently had one through from the time they vere taken from the feet of the dy ng woman still had evidences of sand and gravel and the presence of marks which indicated she had slid over a graveled surface started the 2 jurors down the trail toward un animity Alight Have Disagreed Investigation revealed gravel un der the rubber heel in the creaae o the holes Had tills discovery not occurred it is almost certain there would have been a disagreement or a ver dict of guilty for one of the Jesser offenses said W B Kroitse fore man of the jury Not once in the 21 hours of delib eration did the vote show more than four foe conviction Ten ballots were taken before the final unani mous vote and in the last four of these the vote was 10 to 2 for acquittal Offers to Wear Cout Shortly after the deliberations started Mrs Neva Welters offered to don the coat and hat of the dead woman in order if possible to dis cover something from this that would point to a clew of what had alien place Jt was while they were thus going over the clothes that tbe the condition of the stockings and shoes waa discovered The scratched gravelly condition of the shoes had not been touched ipon by the attorneys for the de fendant Laid Hammer Aside Considerable attention was given to the hammer in evidence but con sideration of it as the weapon that killed Mrs Hinch finally had to foe Iiscontmued We reluctantly had to lay the Hammer aside said Mr Krouse It seemed unlikely to us that the de fendant if he had used it in the heat of passion as would have had to tie Lhe case would have carefully laid it in the tool box of the car under Lbe seat Then too we took into consideration the fact that the ham mer was not discovered in the car until some time afterwards after others had been in it making its re lation to the crime more or less re mote One of the women produced a vanity cose and it was found it fit ted the space in the handkerchief in accordance with Hindis testi mony We talked for a considerable time about the shape of this center spot and one of the men finally said it was the shape of the heel on a womans shoe and sure enough thnt is what Jt appeared to be In the light of the remainder of the evi dence we also hud to discard the handkerchief as states evidence Xo Jury Jangling The jurors were in deliberation un til about oclock Saturday night when they were furnished cots Sunday mornmg the case was again taken up There was no jangling no at tacking of one another or quarrels Mr Krouse stated There was a general gocd fellowship among the jurors throughout the entire period The jurors felt that County At torney Mason acquitted himself ex cellently considering his age and in experience But we felt we could not convict the defendant on the evidence presented since it was all circumstantial and had to be con sidered under the rules of circum stantial evidence which the judge outlined so definitely in our instruc tions Returned Before Clone The verdict was returned before Judge Joseph J Clark in the Turn Ur Z Culuouz JJ Will Rogers NEW YORK May you ever go to a dinner and have to stand up and not even get any dinner Well I did last night at the Gridiron dinner to Presi dent Roosevelt It sure was worth it Those Washington newspaper men are the cleverest ones we have they have the cleverest skits and take offs on our public men This one was a great show Its a pity they dont arrange to do em before a regular audi ence for Lord those prominent men there miss many gags 1 know a regular audience would be twice as keen and apprecia tive I think Its because each man in Washington is so en grossed in his own sphere that he is not so well up on all topics as the average reader and these sketches cover everything Ogden Mills and the president both made good speeches I think those things do a lot of good to help keep those old big boys feet on the ground
