(Bulletin) WASHINGTON, May 5, A one per, cent sales tax was re- 'jected today by the senate finance 'committee. The vote against the tax was 72 to 8. i Senator Reed, Republican, proposed the general sales'tax, ex- empting fooj, clothing, medicines farm implements. Democrats voted almost solidly the tax. The defeat .was believed to have Skilled this.controversial tax. .The 25 per cent-admissions tax fights was cut; down to ten per cent but the 45 cents ex- emption on'these tickets was re- moved. Flour for Needy Arrives Here The first allotment of flour milled from Randolph county's share of wheat issued by the United States government for re- lief purposes arrived in Moberly today. The shipment consisted 290 sacks of firsi. grade flour. Randolph received one car load of this wheat. It is being milled by the Model Mills .of Salisbury, Mo. The remainder of the flour will be- received here as- fast as the -wheat is milled. The wheat has been consigned to the Randolph county chapter of the American Red Cross through Otto Swoboda, city clerk.

NEW MINE WILL SHIP COAL_SOON Operations Expected to Be in Full Sway Latter Part of Month BIG SHOVEL SCOOPS OUT A NEW ROAD RELEASE OF FALL UP TO HOOVER Warden Declares He Won't Heed Order of U. S. At- torney General WASHINGTON, May 5 !The senate finance committee re- fused today to raise income taxes to the wartime level aa a 'part of its effort to find of additional annual rev- which Chairman Smoot said it needed to produce to balance the budget. After rejecting the wartime schedule which would have brought a surtax maximum of 65 percent, the committee began an search for sources of revenue. During the midst of the discussion Senator Reed, Republi- can, Pa., -proposed that it restore the general. sales tax to the bill. WASHINGTON, May 5 3be revised revenue bill was de- dared short of the goal of balancing the budget by Chairman Smoot of the' senate, fi- nance committee and the commit- tee was called back to look for taxes. >.ff.

Fall from the state prison here on any less authority than that of the president of the United States or the federal parole board. An or- er from Attorney General Mitch- ell will i not be heeded, Swope said. The warden said Fall's commit- ment papers specifically stated the former secretary of the inter- ior was to be "confined until this fine is paid." He asserted that under the law the only way Fall could be freed without, payment of the fine was by authority of the president of the federal parole board, or by taking a pauper's oath. Fall, sentenced to a year and day for taking a bribe while sec- retary of the interior in the Hard- ing administration in connection with leasing naval oil reserves, was fined The sentences passed in court did not specify payment .of this fine at the pnd of his term.

On nearly a dozen primary items 'the committee yesterday executed a right about face, putting back into the measure four tariff levies and reversing its decision on a list of other items. By the time it was.done all compu- tations of the bill's probable yield appeared mere guesses, so the i whole thing was handed over to experts for refiguring. To Report Next Their report was awaited. If the ''Calculated revenue fell well short of the billion dollars needed, Chairman Smoot, Republican, of said, more taxes would be written in. In any case he was to get the bill to the senate immediately, so debate can begin next week. Serious obstacles stood in the of his program. Senator Bingham, Republican, Conn., had pending a motion .suc- cessful, would produce an entire- ly different bill. He sought to sub- stitute the entire program submit- ted oy Secretary Mills for the bill evolved by the committee.

Mitchell said that Ward en Swope of the penitentiary who announced he would hold Fall for pavment of the fine or to extra thirty days and take the pauper's oath might not stand the situation, and therefore he would be nistructed. The fine is collectable, Mitchell explained, whenever Fall is able to pay it, and the judgment "stands as a> legal -charge." MASSIE ORDERED TO SAN FRANCISCO WASHINGTON, May 5 The navy department, on the rec-r ommendation of Rear Admiral Yates Stirling, commandant of the Hawaiian naval district, today ordered Lieutenant Thomas H. to duty in the San Fran- cisco naval district. The first shipment of coal from the Huntsville-Sinclair Mining Company's new strip mine will probably be made between May 20 and Junel, it. was reported today. Erection of the huge steam shov- el to be used in stripping opera- tions was completed Sunday and the shovel put to work Monday. Finishing touches. are now being made on the modern tipple to be used in cleaning and loading coal from the mine. As construction' work at the mine nears completion, it is an- nounced that Howard Asbell of Huntsville has beeu awarded the contract for trucking the coal mined from the pit to the loading dump. Asbell is to start operations with five new trucks, which will haul the coal in 6-ton trailers. These trailers will be supplied by the mining company. The first operations of the huge, 6-ton steam shovel were centered on construction of a truck road from the coal hopper at the'tip- ple to the mining .pit. At the pres- ent time the shovel is working on a 35-foot fill, which will allow trucks to drive to the top loading hopper, empty their coal and back to the pit. Build Mile of Road The road to be constructed will be a mile and a half long, from the loading hopper to the coal pit. The surface is to be shaled, so that an all-weather road will be in service. Shale for the route is being taken from the pits at the old slack washer, east of Hunts- ville. The small steam shovel be- ing used there is one that will be used to load coal, at the. coal-pit onto the trucks. Although Asbell will start truck- ing operations at. the mine witn only five trucks, two more will be "ad'ded later, after the mine is in full swing. Mr. Kelce has estimat- ed that from 20 to 25 cars of coal will ibe loaded from the mine daily. The steam shovel to be used in stripping the coal will scoop up six cubic yards- of dirt at one bite. Thns means it' will lift 8 tons at once. In the operations now going on on the road building, the shov- el picks up huge boulders with ease and tears out trees, roots and all. One scoop full of dirt each minute was the work done yester- day. This means the shovel moves 480 tons of dirt an hour. Install Loaders The final work now being done at the tipple is installation of the automatic loaders from the hopper to the tipple interior and onto the coal cars. The coal will be carried from the hopper to the automatic "Soup Kitchen" Is Discontinued The Salvation Army "soup kitchen" for transients was dis- continued today, .Captain' E. A. LaPlount announces. Withdrawal of. city aid will not permit its operation any longer, he said. The transient lodging house, lo- cated back of O'Keefe Whole- sale Grocery Co., will probably continue to run as Mr. O'Keefo has donated the quarters free of charge, according to Captain La- Plount. The Salvation Army will con- tinue its other activities and locai relief work, as- before, as :much as aid received will allow. Captain LaPlount reports the Salvation Army fund exhausted and that the work is now carried on by dona- tions. During the past few days-be- tween 30 and 35 transients have been housed in the-lodging house each night, and between 50 and 60 fed from the Concannon station, the captain reports. He estimated more than 5000 men have been taken care of since the "Bread line" and lodging house was estab- lished here last November. 78 CLERKS CUT OFF BY BECKER Reduction Made Owing to Usual Lull in License Sales at This Time JEFFERSON CITY, May 5 (IP) of State Charles U. Becker said had drop- ped 78 clerks from hrs payroll dur- ing the past few weeks or. that the employes had been notified they would be taken from the payroll within the next two weeks. The secretary of state said the cut was usual at this time of the year and was made because those dropped were not needed as license sales began droppnig off. Those dropped or notified they will be, have been working as 'extra help' since the first of the year, he said. He also said the extra nelp was dropped one month sooner this year than last year. The reductions in the different offices are: Kansas City, 19; St. Louis, 23; Clayton, 11; Springfield, 2; St. Joseph, 1, and Jefferson City 22. Becker said there would :be fur- ther-reductions in -the personnel of his department soon because the peak of- automobile license sales: passed. Becker- said he does not know, hoy- many clerks were now em- ployed in the automobile license department, but that the number is approximately the same now as it was a year ago. All those dropped are in the license depart- ment, he said.

Mr. Liedl played the Wickc Modern Courier Now Delivers Monitor-Index Daily to Farm Homes Along Three Highways 1 Senator Swanson would abolish the submarine, but his thesis was -l opposed again today by the Jap- representative. Yes, times have changed! Farmers of Randolph, Chariton; and Howard counties, as well as various towns in this section, are being brought a bit closer to Mo- berly and the outside world by a new delivery service recently in- augurated by the Monitor-Index. In bygone days the rural dwell- er received news of current af- fairs days, weeks, and perhaps months'later from wandering ped- dlers or from the lips of neigh- bors. Now each afternoon a Mon- itor-Index car races 122 'miles each day through this territory bearing the final edition of the day's news. The horn paper is thrown in'the farmer's car races on to other eager read- ers further on. Every minute counts in quenching the public's thirst for the latest news. The farmer along the Salisbury, Bruns- wick, Glasgow, Fayette route re- ceivcs-his paper hot off the press and almost as soon as'it is de- livered in Moberly. The Monitor-Index now serves farmhouses along the highways from Moberly to .Huntsville, Clif- ton Hill, Salisbury, Keytesville, Brunswick and in Glasgow, Fay- ette, Armstrong, and in each of these towns an afternoon carrier service is maintained. The motor route passes through country rich in early day Missouri history. Modern gravel highways now follow what was once a plank road in the vicinity 'of a road which once wound through fields of growing tobacco slaves. Speedy delivery by motor car is a far cry and quite a contrast from the days when crowds gath- ered at each point to welcome the old lumbering stagecoach with its several weeks old mail. More than 600 papers are deliv- ered daily along this one route. Of this number a little over 100 are delivered to rural farm houses. Lawrence Deianey is the Moni- tor-Index representative who cov- ers the Randolph-Chariton-Howard county route each day. He com- pletes the 122 mile trip in about three hours. Other towns around Moberly served by motor bus or train with the Monitor-Index on the (same afternoon of publication are Madi- son, Holliday, Paris, Renick, Clark, Cairo, Jacksonville, Higbee and other smaller communities. Altogether there are more than homes in Moberly's trade territory receiving the Monitor-In- dex at approximately the same time it is being delivered in Mob- erly. These are exclusive of the 'subscribers on rural routes who are served by mail the next morn- ing.

Mr. Keating, with his gracious personality and usual fine sing- ing, again pleased his hearers to perfection. He was accompanied by Mrs.- Eisenstein. The Liedl home was beautifully decorated with large baskets of pink roses and tulips. Several out- of-town guests, including a num- ber from Glasgow, attended the recital. Mrs. Charles W.
