LYU I, NO. 170. t'lKl* rtf rn (tit WITHOUT, OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKE I CH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT COES, Byron ABILENE, TEXAS,THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 17, 1938.—SIXTEEN PAGES._ AMftrtated MWW (AF) PRICE FIVE CENTS Banker Scores Pensions, Cost Of Government New President Sees Additional Business Burden HOUSTON, Nov. 18.—<JP)—Phillip A Benson of Brooklyn, N Y.. newly elected president of the American Bankers association. In hi* first public utterance since his electon today, cried out tonight against old age j^ensorss and the mounting cost of government. "Prom time Immemorial there have been those who wanted something for nothing," he said. The slow and painful road to toil had no appeal. Give us, they say, substantial pensions and we will agree to spend the money and consume goods.'' Benson said apparently those who sought state old age pensions had lost .sight of the fact they would be taking something they had not earned He charged the government was taking a larger and larger share of the products of industry each year. "No one would curtail the ordinary and necessary functions of government," he said. "Our lives, liberties, fortunes and well being depend on them But to extend government beyond its regular sphere, to widen its activities, to increase greatly the number who derive support from it, creates an additional burden on industry and one that It should not have to bear." ELECTION UNANIMOUS Benson's address was delivered to the savings division of the ABA a few hours after the convention had unanimously elevated him from the first vice presidency to succeed President Orval W. Adams of Salt Lake City, Utah. Robert M Hanes of Winston-Salem, N. C., was elected first vice president and P D Houston of Nashville, Tenn., was elected second vice president Houston won a three cornered race In which he was opposed by W. Laird Dean of Topeka, Has. and Prank P. Powers of Mora, Minn Dean offered the motion making Houston a election unanimous. Turfing from old age pensions to j the rising tax collections of local, state and national governments,1 Benson said: "True, some of this m-mey goes for relief and for public works, but ; regardless of its* use, the burden, rests an all wage earners and all j property owners. I know there are some who think the rich pay all the taxes, but that isn't so. It isn't true either that government has some magic w^ay of getting money. Government hasn't discovered how to get something for nothing. "The country as a whole can not be helped by the purchase of vast quantities of a metal—silver—and atoring it away in a vault. On the contrary, the country is harmed by it. JUDGE OBJECTS TO HER SLACKS AS WAVE OF INDIGNATION MOUNTS— U. S. Scourges Germany On Violence Hitler Charges FDR Imagining Menace To U. S.’ Reaction First To Arms Plan; Jews In Fear Device Demonstrated To Doctors- HOLE IN SKULL PROVIDES NEW WAY TO HEAL BROKEN NECKS OKLAHOMA CITY NOV. 18. A new method of healing broken necks by boring holes in the skull and attaching wires through them to pull the head up was described today before the Southern Medical association. The device, demonstrated by Dr. Ralph M. Stuck of Denver, Colo., is designed to pull apart the broken fragments of the backbone until they have time to heal. It makes the wearing of a plaster collar unnecessary until late In the mending process. In applying it to the victim of an automobile or other accident the young Denver physician bores two holes In the skull Just back of the normal hairline inserts a retracting device or clamp, and attaches to it wires which exerts an upward pull of from five to 30 pounds by means of weights attached to the ends. This method has resulted in a large Improvement In the BERLIN, Nov. 17— (Thursday)—(AP) — Adolf Hitler s tions laid today President !

The possibility of complete blindness as the result of eating too little vitamin A was pointed out by Dr John B. Youmans of Vanderbilt university. Nashville. Tenn. Lack of the vitamin will cause night blindness, or Inability to see In dim light, which is a cause of many automobile accidents, and result In drying up of the eye, itching and burning of the eyeballs, and eventually complete blindness unless the supply of the vitamin is increased, he said. An insufficient amount of the vitamin will also cause skin disorders, baldness, and cause the development of secondary Infections of the windpipe, lungs and other body organs, Dr. Youmans declared. When Helen Hulick. 28-year-old Los Angeles kindergarten teacher, shown above with a load of lawbooks and attired in her slacks, persisted in wearing that garb in the courtroom of Municipal Judge Arthur Guerin the Judge ordered her sent to Jail for five days for contempt. She was a witness against two negroes charged with robbing her house. The Judge complained that witnesses and prisoners alike paid more attention to women thus attired than to the court.

DIPLOMATS RITES TODAY "Roosevelt's imaginary 'menace' to America," the caption read In on» of the few German morning papers to print a brief account of Tuesday's interview. "Suspicions cast on other powers in the interest of United States armaments " It was the first reaction printed in Germany to the United States president's announcement that air force plans contemplated defense of both North and South America Yesterday was a Protestant holiday, the Day of Atonement, and most government officials were en route to Duesaeldorf for the funeral of Ernst vom Rath, slain diplomat The Lokalanzeiger, another of the post-holiday newspapers to carry an account of the interview, printed the headline, 'President Roosevelt’s lust of power." German Jews, moat of them in seclusion and an estimated 40.000 under arrest, tonight fearfully awaited their ultimate fate. These were immediate factors in their fears and hopes:    * I. Funeral tomorrow of a nazi diplomat whose assassination by a young Jew in Paris last week started the latest wave of anti-Semitic violence and repressive decrees 2 A United States protest on behalf of American Jews following President Roosevelts denunciation of antl-Jewish action*. 3. The suspension of normal government business today because of the Protestant Day of Atonement. FEAR NEW RESTRICTIONS The Jews believed the government would use the funeral of Ernst vom Rath as an occasion to Issue further restrictions promised by Field Marshal Goering and Propaganda Minister Goebbels. Some Jews professed to have received a warning—In what way they did not explain—that another "spontaneous demonstration" such as last Thursday's might be organized in connection with services for vom Rath, a secretary of the German embassy in Paris slain by the 17-year-old Herchel Grynszpan U.

The figures were compiled by Fred Thompson, education director of the state game department, in charge of temporary headquarters here Thompaon received telephonic reports from the departments warden force, augmentd by its staff of regional game managers, who had been concentrated In heavily-populated game areas. Thompson acid hunters were somewhat disappointed by the heat wave which dispelled the chill of dawn over much of the state and drove deer and turkeys into hiding among leafy bowers. A majority of the record-breaking number of Nimrods roamed the ct Jar breaks of the Central Texas hill country while other battalions sought their quarry in the mesquite brush of South Texas the timberlands of the eastern portion of the state, the sandy plains of the Panhandle and the rugged, sparsely populated Trans-Pecos region. No reports of kills of black hear, on which the season also opened, reached department headquarters. Warden A R Williams of Alpine said about 200 black tall deer were taken in his area, the kill being light because the .species had been suffering from drouth. Reports from South * Texas indicated the weather was too warm for much activity there but it was anticipated hunting would pick up later. A good opening day kill in Colorado county of Southeast Texas where bucks have been scarce was reported by Warden T T Waddell who estimated the season’s total In that district would run about 500. Goliad, Trinity and Angelina counties, where several years avo the specie* were non-existant. also reported encouraging kills. The department has been restocking the areas.    ■...

Nov. 1&-(AP)—Tho United States and Great Britain drew closer together today by announcing the conclusion of their reciprocal trade agreement, while the United States and Germany drifted farther apart. AT WHITE HOUSE The state department said the British and new Canadian trade pacts would be signed at the White House tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock. Prime Minister Mackenzie King of Canada will come here for the signing. Secretary of State Hull, Mr. King and probably the British ambassador, Sir Ronald Lindsay, will speak after the ceremony. The Anglo-American agreement links two countries enjoying forty per cent of the world's trade, makes the 19th agreement concluded by Secretary Hull and brings within trade agreements about 60 per cent of our total trade. At the same time It has the effect of excluding Germany further from trade with this country and deepens the abyss between the reich and the United States. 1.006 CONCESSIONS Officials estimate that about 1,000 tariff concessions are jranted by both sides in the Anglo-American agreement. Siree Germany Is on the United States economic black list because she discriminates against American trade, she will not be entitled to share in the tariff reductions granted Great Britain as oth er nations enjoying most-favored-nation treatment from tbs government will be able to do. Rumors reached the capital to day the German ambassador, Hans Dieckhoff, might be ordered back to Berlin by his government as I protest against President Roose veit’s declaration that Germany’s treatment of minorities was unbelievable in a 20th century clviliza tion. These reports were unconfirmed. It was announced at the White House today that Mr, RoRosevelt’s remarks applied to treatment of Catholics in the reich as well as Jews.

NOV. 16 — (AP)—The mounting American wave of indignation over Germany’* anti-semitic campaigns today swept in new proposals for resettling Jewish refugees in this country and Africa as well as demands for economic and diplomatic reprisals against the nail regime. CATHOLICS SPEAK Meanwhile, six Catholic dignitaries on a nation-wide radio broadcast voiced what their master of ceremonies, the Rev. Maurice Shee-hy of Washington, said was "firm indignation against the atrocities visited upon the Jews in Germany. * Other speakers were: Alfred Bl Smith, papal chamberlain and former governor of New York; Archbishop John J. Mitty of San Francisco; Bishop Peter L. Ireton of Richmond, speaking from Baltimore; Bishop John Mark Gannon of Erie, Pa, from Cleveland; and Msgr, Joseph Corrigan, rector of Catholic university, from Washing* ton. More than IOO bishops, minister* and laymen of the Methodist Episcopal church, here for the 120th annual meeting of its board of foreign missions, unanimously adopted a resolution condemning "unspeakable persecution" in Germany. PROPOSES MIGRATION Mrs. Mary Riis, widow of Jacob Rlia, the philanthropist, proposed in an open letter to President Roosevelt that an American committee be established to finance mass immigration of the entire German Jewish population of 800,-000 into the United States. Estelle M Stemberger, executive director of World Peace ways, suggested that British areas rn South Africa be set aside for refugees and credits for the colonies be furnished by England, the United States, ri'ance and the Netherlands. In support of an existing refugee program, approximately 20,000 persons in New York, which has the largest Jewish population of any city in the world, bought tickets for the 5th annual "night of stars’ benefit at Madison Square Garden. Proceeds of the benefit, with more than 400 celebrities participating, will go to the united Palestine appeal for the settlement in Palestine of Jews from Germany, Austria and Poland. Quota limitations on Jews arriving here were being strictly enforced, immigration officials reported. Germany has a quota of 2.5.957 annually and Austria i.413, but only IO per cent of the total may enter each month. While Catholics, Methodists and non-denominational group* continued to scourge Germany tonight, most Jewish leaders in tills country maintained silence, fearing further expressions of bitterness might bring greater suffering to Jews in Germany.
