The mistaken report is that each farmer will be allowed 300 pounds monthly exemption. Actually, each farmer is allowed 300 pounds exemption for .the year | for his own use, Curry states. Every farmer who slaughters hogs is required to make a return monthly to the office of the collector of internal revenue, including in his statement the 300 pounds on which he is securing exemption for his own use. This return is to be sent to the collector of internal revenue at Oklahoma City, each month for the preceding month. Failure to make the return in the following month makes a WASHINGTON, March 21.—LD The United States and Japan to-day “shook hands across the Pacific” in a significant exchange of notes mutually pledging peace, Hoko Hirota, foreign minister of Japan, in a formal note to Roosevelt administration diplomatic chiefs here asserted the Nippon government “has no in-tion whatever to provoke and make trouble with any other power.” Secretary Hull, evidently scanning reported war clouds in the Far East, based on strained relations between Japan and Soviet Russia, replied: “I receive this statement with special gratification. “I am glad to take this opportunity to state categorically that the United States on its part has no desire to create any issues and no intention to initiate any conflict in its relations with other countries.” The Hirota-Hull exchange was the first such passage of good will notes since President Roosevelt took office more than a year ago.

The Kansas officers, Assistant Attorney Tleneral Wint Smith, and a federal agent named An-derson, wanted to take the tw*o prisoners, held here for safe-keeping, to Kansas for questioning in connection with hank robberies at Galena, Baxter Springs and Weir. The two Kansans went to Claremore to confer with the county attorney there. An offi-cer is on his way from Claremore to attempt identification of Cotner as a participant in a recent gun battle at Chelsea in which an officer and an outlaw w-ere killed. Meanwhile, Wright awaited arraignment at Stillwater on charges of robbery in connection with the $5,000 looting of a farm auction last fall.

Originally the measure provided that cotton would be exempt from the tax for only one year if it w*as stored by farmers, but tile house amended this to make ho time of exemption indefinite as Ion- as the staple does not move in interstate commerce. Penalties for violations of the act and regulations made by the agriculture secretary also wore modified by the house, although that branch rejected a proposal by Rep. Rankin (D-Miss) striking out the provision giving the secretary pow’er under the farm adjustment act to control the use of land taken out of production. The house also struck out a provision which would have authorized the president to enter into agreements with foreign countries to fix the amount of cotton to he exported. The secretary of agriculture is authorized to purchase at 55 per cent of the market value cotton produced in excess of quotas to be turned over to the relief organizations. Share croppers and tenant farmers are protected in the bill. Observers assumed that yesterday’s White House conference, which served as a round table for the entire airmail situation, discussed among other things the advisability of turning the mails as quickly as possible back to private companies.

IT DF WASHINGTON, Mar. 19.—UP) Government receipts for the 1934 fiscal year, which ends June 30, today reached $2.132,545,000—or more than wras collected in the en tire fiscal year of 1933 when receipts came to $2,079,696,742. New taxes, including those on agricultural processing and dis tilled spirits, were important contributors to the larger revenue. Income tax collections for the fiscal year to March 16, the latest day available, were $482,212.-000 as against $453,007,000 last year. Deposits on income taxes during March were $125,005,359 as compared with $69,667,920 last March when hanks were closed. Actual collections, however, have exceeded $150,000,000 but w-ill not show on the treasurer s daily statement until checks have cleared and the cash is actually on deposit. Expenditures for the fiscal year to date were $4,589,680,000, as compared with $3,595,878,000 last vear.

SIMPSON FUNERAL .Many Friends Pay Last Tribute To Dead Farm Leader OKLAHOMA CITY, Mar. 19.— UP)—Homage to the memory ot John A. Simpson, National Farmers’ union president who died Thursday in Washington, was paid here today by national farm leaders and friends and neighbors of the Oklahoma pioneer in the farm union movement. During the morning, the body lay in state at the capitol. The First Baptist church was the scene of funeral services, set for 2 p. rn. Definite Agreements In their messages, the diplomatic chiefs of the two nations uttered definite agreements, using the wrords of Hirota, that: “No question exists between our tw’o countries that is fundamentally incapable of amicable solution.” Hull concurred in this statement and added: “If unhappily there should arise in the future any controversy between our two countries, the American government will be prepared, as I believe it always has been in the past, to examine the position of Japan in a spirit of amity.” Further the two statesmen spoke favorably of an extension of trade between the two countries. The notes were released simultaneously to the press at the state department here and in Tokyo. The Japanese note was delivered by Hiroshi Saito, Nippon’s new ambassador here, just one month ago, but only today was its receipt disclosed. Some close observers here saw in it a friendly attempt by Japan to lay the groundwork for opening discussions with the United States on several questions on which the two nations are not in complete accord. Questions Involved Included in this category would be Japan s unofficial proposal for a preliminary two-nation conference for a discussion of naval armaments before the general naval conference which is to be held in Washington in 1935. ,/apan has already served notice she will seek parity at that time. Others considered it significant that the note had been dispatched just one week before Pu YI, the former boy emperor of China, became Emperor Rang Tell of the Japanese-sponsored empire of Manehukuo, on March I. In general, however, Japan’s note was interpreted as an auspicious introduction of Ambassador Saito, accredited with being closer to the military party in Japan than was his predecessor. Ambassador Debuchi. “I do not doubt,” Hirota said, “that all issues pending between the two nations will be settled in a satisfactory manner. “It is the sincere desire of Japan that a most peaceful and friendly relation will be firmly established betw-een her and her great neighbor across the Pacific, the United States. And to this end I have been exerting my best efforts since I took the post of foreign minister.” After replying in kind, Hull added: “I feel I should also avail myself of this opportunity to express my earnest hope that it may be possible for all of the countries which have interests in the Far East to approach every question existing or which may arise between or among them in such spirit and manner that these questions may be regulated or resolved with injury to none and with definite and lasting advantage to all.” Greater returns for the amount invested — New-s Classified Ads.
