SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 29, 1938 THIRTY-TWO PAGES IN THREE SECTIONS. 0tilted Fran (CP) PRICE 5 CENTS TAKING ISSUE ON TAX LAW- Harrison Claims TO DEDICATE MEMORIAL STATUE FDR ‘Misinformed’ LEGION BOOMS LARRY DANIEL AS NATIONAL COMMITTEEMAN France Asked To Seize U.S, Spy Witness Disclosure Made After Four Freed Under Heavy Bond NEW YORK, May 28. —(AV-Federal agents today sent an urgent request to French officials at Cherbourg to intercept a second “runaway witness” in the government's investigation of a suspected, major spy ring in this country. United States Attorney Lamar Hardy disclosed that the witness, Werner G. Gudenberg, whom he described as a key figure in the espionage probe, slipped through the government's net and sailed ostensibly as a “stowaway” on the North German Lloyd liner Hamburg last Wednesday. FUGITIVES SUBPOENAED The disclosure came shortly after four members of the crew of the North German Lloyd liner Bremen —including Wilhelm Boehnke, scarfaced political ‘‘fuehrer’’ of the ship’s crew—were freed on a total of $40,000 bail as material witnesses In the espionage drama. Hardy said Gudenberg skipped the country by’ the same apparently well-planned ruse as Dr. Ignatz T Griebl, a former Oerman army intelligence officer, who sailed without a passport on the Bremen on May IO. Both had been subpoenaed to testify in the government’s case against Gunther Gustav Rumrich, a United States army deserter, one of the first four arrested in the spy ring roundup. DEFENSE OVERRULED Federal Judge Vincent Leibell overruled defense protests against high ball, declaring; “The government of the United States is not to be thwarted in 1 trict, also in this division, was the conducting an investigation ac-1 other successful unit, but it fell 60 Friends Campaign For Promotion Of Veteran Leader Parramore post of the American Legion will seek election of Larry 8. Daniel, fifth division commander, as national Legion committeeman from Texas. Friends have announced intention of making an aggressive campaign for election of their veteran leader, who is recognized as one of the most active Legionnaires in the state. EXPERIENCED LEADER Daniel was elected last July to the position of division commander, and took office during the 1937 state convention, held in San Angelo last September. The division embraces five congressional districts—the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 21st. To accept the position as division commander, Daniel relinquished the office of district 17 commander, which he held from 1934 to 1937. His election as division commander made him a state vice-commander. Back of his leadership in district and divisional position, Daniel was trained in work of the American Legion as a local office holder. He has held every office in the local post except that of chaplain. And, on the side, he served for two years as Grande Chef d'Train of the Forty-and-Elght. PRESENTS TROPHY The rotund promoter of veterans’ activities has served on every committee in the local post. Now he is a member of the board of trustees of the Veterans’ clubhouse, and on Graduation Week Round Begins For Three Institutions Colle n careers of 225 seniors at Abilene’s three institutions of higher learning will reach their culmina-on the Americanization committee,    commencement    week    activi-    j    and    President    J.    D,    St'.defer,    who baccalaureates H-SU Alumni Map Jubilee Celebration Ex-Students Elect Mrs. Pender As President Again Election of officers, formulation of plans for the H-SU golden jubilee anniversary in 1941-1942, and revision of the constitution of the alumni body, featured the annual bon duet and program of the Hardin-Simmons university alumni and ex-students’ association, held last night at Hotel Hilton. Mrs. H. A. Pender, Abilene, head of the alumni group the past year, w as reelected president. NAUTICAL THEME Other officers are Mrs. J. M.

Irvin, Lubbock, fourth vice president; Mildred Caldwell, Abilene, recording secretary; J. T. Haney. Abilene, treasurer, and Rev. Fred C. Eastham, Wichita Falls, chaplain. The banquet program, in the gaily decorated Hilton hotel ballroom. had a nautical theme, “Sailing Into Port,’’ with the Rev. P. D O’Brien, Stamford alumnus, as skipper and toastmaster. Speakers included Mrs. Pender, president of the H-SU Alumni and Ex-Students association, who gave “Sailing Orders;” W. J. Behrens, board of trustees head, who discussed “Sailing On;" Dr. R. N. Richardson, executive vice-president who outlined “Beacon Lights;” cording to law.” The complaint against the four men said that if they were permitted to return to Germany, they could not be compelled to come back to this country to testify in the trial of Rumrich and four co- ; defendants—Erich Glaser, a United States army private, formerly sta- . Honed at the air defense headquarters, Mitehel field, Long Island; Johanna Hofmann, red - headed hairdresser on the German liner Europa. and Hermann Voss. All are charged with ferreting out American defense secrets in i violation of the espionage act.

Abilene will have a part in National cotton week, sponsored by the National textile institute, May 30-June 4. The movement is to increase the consumption of cotton and is of great importance, says Paul Haines, economist in organization extension service, who was here this week. While the domestic consumption of cotton is of great importance, a thing of greater importance seems to have been overlooked by the textile institute, says Haines. That Is the matter of tarriff adjustments through trade agreements being jponsored by Secretary of State Cordell Hull. Without consummation of these trade agreements, the cotton industry, along with that of all other export surplus crops, must finally be reduced to domestic consumption, he said. This will mean the taking out of cultivation in this country. 22.800.000 acres of cotton. 8,900,000 acres of wheat. 665,000 acres of tobacco, 9,150,000 acres of corn and over 7,000,000 acres of land needed for feeding horses to work thfs land.

OTHMAN HOLLYWOOD, May 28. — (UP)—While jurors kept one eye cm the svelte thigh of Constance Bennett and the other on an oil painting thereof, Willy Pogany told them today of the troubles an artist has when his subject thinks she is more beautiful than the portrait he makes of her. Her thighs weren’t the only problem he had, Pogany testified in his attempt to collect $3,500 from Miss Bennett. He said she wanted him to compromise with honesty by honing down her waist line, by making her eyes look bigger, by changing her hair and—worst of all. he said—by painting her fingernails red. The Jurymen glanced from thigh to thigh as Pogany told of the artistic odds against which he struggled in his efforts to please his non-paying patroness, one of the screen’s highest paid beauties. “She said the thigh looked a little fat,” Pogany said, averting his eye from the real thing and regarding the one he had painted in blue satin. “I made it slimmer. “She said I’d made her waistline too thick. I cut another half inch off of it, although it already was smaller than natural.” For two hours he talked In this vein. Miss Bennett listened. She’ll get her turn later to tell the Jurors why she believes Pogany’s masterpiece makes her look—to use her expression-like a droopy sack of cement with a rope tied around it. ed for the ministry at the Louis- ASPERMONT—Three-day golden Ville Seminary and Yale university, jubilee celebration of Stonewall will deliver the sermon, on “The county’s 50th anniversary due to Glorious Adventure."

Author Of Bill Delivers Reply To Criticisms Mississippi Solon Claims Treasury Not Cooperative WASHINGTON, May 28.—<A>)-An old line Southern democrat—Senator Harrison of Mississippi—told the senate today President Roosevelt wras wrong when he criticized the new tax law. Harrison, chairman of the senate committee which helped write the tax revision measure, replied to criticisms by the president yesterday in a speech at Arthurdale, W. Va. DECLARES ‘MISINFORMED’ “Congress framed this tax legislation to help business,” Harrison said. “I only hope that what we had expected will not be dampened or thrown away by this speech the president made yesterday.” Roosevelt permitted the $5,000,-000,000 revenue measure to become law last night without his signature, declaring he did not want to seem to favor “the abandonment of an important principle of American taxation." This referred to the undistributed profits tax. which the president consistently has advocated and many business spokesmen criticized. The new law continues this levy for two years in modified form. Harrison said Roosevelt had been “misinformed” in arguing that the new flat-rate capital gains taxes did not bear on the big and little taxpayer in proportion to their ability to pay. His voice rising, the Mississippian raid the treasury gave him “no sympathetic cooperation when he sought recently to ease the tax load on Cebt-burdened corporations. CLAIMS ‘MOST HELPFUL’ Harrison expressed regret Roosevelt had let the new tax bill become law without signing It. "I would have much preferred that he had said he didn't like those (unaistributed profits and capital gains! provisions and vetoed the bili,’ the senator added. “I have no fear of what would have happened in the American congress. ’ The statement was interpreted generally as a contention congress would have over-ridden the veto. The new tax law. the Mississippi democrat declared, should “unfreeze much of the credit of this country, and be most helpful in getting some new industries started to relieve , unemployment distress.” Monday    “I am not a member of any group The 1938 drift of farmer senti-1 or j^y that abandoned American ment regarding the New Deal will principles of taxation," Harrison show up In the lows returns, un-    adding    that if the modified obscured by cross-currents of la- undistributed profits levy “doesn't bors internal warfare.
