WANTED—one corpus delicti, j For the peace of mind of the sheriff, his deputies, the local funeral home employees a n d those whose duty it is to check up on reports of violence for the sake of accurate news recording, a body with one arm missing is needed.
But so far, according to all official sources of information and despite highly colored accounts to the contrary, the body has not been found and the murderer is not held in the county jail.
Finding of a h u rn a n a r rn, somewhat decomposed, several days ago near Ada resulted in an investigation, which found nothing else, and gave rise to various theories as to the whereabouts of the body from which the arm had been taken at the elbow.
Arm Was Found There was such an arm. That fact has been definitely established, and officers are tile physician who examined it will testify to it.
But since announcement of the* finding of the arm, there has occurred one of those frequent inflations which take an item of truth and expand it into vivid, details accounts of something that didn’t happen.
And as a result, the office of the sheriff has been deluged with telephone calls a nd personal
visits to find out about it and the funeral homes have had dozens of visitors come to see the alleged mutilated body.
According to some of the reports (all of them could not be traced for lack of time) the finding and condition of the body were about as follows:
Analysis of Stories
The body of a man was found near the underpass southeast of Ada (between two bridges; on a farm near the railroad) under a culvert (stuffed in a hole;* left on top of Hie ground with trash and brush thrown over it).
The body had been dismembered, the arms and legs cut off lone leg cut off).
With the body was found the hacksaw (axe) used in the murder, • .itll initials on the saw. On the body was a dollar watch (gold watch) with a dollar in-j side the case.
One of the sheriff's deputies was present when the body was found.
The guilty man was located and placed in the county jail.
With so much smoke the old adage about there having to be some fire proved unavailing ana all of the detailed stories about tin* finding of the body and its condition were shown to hay© no basis.

WASHINGTON, March 6.—(.Pi In line with the administration goal for reemployment of at least 1,000,000 more men iii private industry, the house labor committee today voted unanimously for a flat 30-hour week for NUA industries subject to modification by a governmental board in case of labor shortage or “other emergencies.”
This was done while criticism —and some praise—of NRA was being received at five separate meetings of code authorities] brought here in an effort to im-1 prove the recovery administration.
Before one of the meetings, letters written by Representative Fulmer (D., S. C.) \vere read, advising South Carolina saw mill operators to work on a “common sense basis’ ’regardless of their NKA code. Fulmer told reporters he stood by the letters.

Would Have Important Bearing On Both Industry and Agriculture
WASHINGTON, March 2.—UP) President Roosevelt today asked congress for authority to modify tariff rates in negotiating commercial agreements with other nations.
“I am requesting the congress to authorize the executive,” said the president, “to enter into executive commercial agreements with foreign nations; and iii pursuance thereof within carefully guarded limits to modify existing duties and import restrictions in such a way as will benefit American agriculture and industry.”
The president discussed at length the reasons for asking such power.
First, he said, world trade has declined to approximately 70 lier cent from its 1929 volume. Second, other governments to an increasing extent are “winning their share of international trade by negotiating reciprocal trade agreements.’’
