Club Hears About Situation in Orient "Japan’s Present Position in North China.” was the subject of the talk given by Captain Henry T. Kent, head of army reserve headquarters for southern West Virginia, to* the Ki-wanis club’s weekly luncheon in the Daniel Boone hotel Tuesday. He was in China during the recent fighting between China and Japan and his talk was based on his observations. “The open door in Manchuria is rapidly being closed.” Captain Kent said, “and the Japanese are the cause of this action.” The result of Japan’s occupation of Manchuria, he said, is the suppression of Chinese bandits, the reestablishment of law and order and a better financial condition, resulting from the safeguarding of life and property under Japanese domination. “Ail over the east there is a fear of Japan.” Captain Kent said,” and in my opinion the only thing that is holding her back is the fear of what Russian planes would do to Japanese industrial centers in case of war.” Private sales of liquor by reputable retailers was advocated Monday evening by the West Side Business Men’s association after a debate in which the advantages of both state monopoly and private sales were argued. The association voted by a large majority to favor a plan of sales by private stores, licensed by the state, principally because, according to Walter M* Lynch, secretary, “a state monopoly would create a political machine.” Another reason given by the opponents to the state monopoly plan was that successful business men would not take the time and trouble to handle liquor sales if the state were to own the product and to refuse to allow a profit. That would throw the liquor trade, they said, to irresponsible second-rate establishments. In favoring private sales. Mr. Lynch said, the association adopted the minority report of its legislative committee, which had been unable to agree on the question in its two weeks of deliberation. Unanimously, the association voted to abolish justice of the peace fees, a* move which had been favored in the committee’s report. Other resolutions were adopted favoring centralization of all public health work in the state government: a municipal home run bill that is being sponsored by the Lions’ club; and amendment of the state primary law to require all candidates to pay fees to help defray primary expenses. A proposal by the committee to place all police under state supervision was voted down. W. C. Easley, state safety engineer, who was the speaker of the evening, I said that the state intends to cooper-I ate with local police in the interests of safety, and that it does not want to interfere with the local authority. But. he said, if the local authorities cannot enforce state traffic laws, the state will. Illustrating the great need of strict enforcement of state laws, Mr. Easley pointed to the 426 deaths from automobile accidents that occurred in Kanawha county in 1934. Of these, he said. 68 per cent were caused by drunken driving. —Tile Egyptians, long before Biblical times, divided the day into 24 parts.

AUTO CLUB FOR LAW ON SAFETY -Sh- Driver’s Responsibility Is Cited in Plan; Rename . Ebert State Head The state legislature will be asked by the West Virginia Automobile association to consider a safety responsibility law, which would deprive a driver of the right to operate a car if he is twice involved in accidents and is unable to satisfy the claims of the motorists whose vehicles are damaged. A resolution calling for the safety responsibility measure and another for an increase in the state police force, from 121 to 188. the number permitted under existing laws, were adopted by the association Monday afternoon at the Ruffner hotel. The association was addressed after a luncheon meeting by Colonel P. D. Shingleton. superintendent of the state police, on the subject of highway safety. He emphasized the need of a large force of state troopers in order to combat the increased number of automobile accidents and deaths. The proposed sefety law would hold each driver financially responsible for damage he might do to the property of others. • The association decided to oppose any increase in motor vehicle registration fees or gasoline tax, and to any diversion of the receipts from these sources to any purpose other than the building and maintenance of roads. The meeting of the association closed with the election of officers and the adoption of a resolution calling for a complete revision of th* bylaws. Charles B. Ebert, of Parkersburg, was reelected president; F. O. Sanders, of Huntington, vice president; Art Oliver, of Parkersburg, secretary, and A. R. Martin, of Morgantown, teasurer. M. S.

NEW MARK SET BY DOOLITTLE Famous Speed Pilot Flashes Across Country in ll Hours, 59 Minutes NEW YORK, Jan. 15 (UP).—Major James Doolittle came roaring in from the West this morning, shot his 10-passenger transport plane over lower New York and touched its wheels at Floyd Bennett field for a new transcontinental record of just one minute under 12 hours. The big plane in which Major Doolittle, his wife. Josephine and Robert Adamson flew from Burbank, Cal., raced the early morning sun across New Jersey to clip approximately four minutes and 50 seconds from the record held by Captain Eddie Rick-enbacker. He averaged 230 miles an hour over 2 750 miles. It was a thrilling, always uncertain race from the time Major Doolittle’s craft got off its course over the Pennsylvania mountains. He appeared at one time to be hopelessly out of the running. Flying at altitudes ranging from 15.000 to 20.000 feet, the noted speed pilot set a furious pace across the continent, virtually without being sighted and without halting. At sunrise, however, his radio messages indicated that he was doubtful of reaching New York by 8:30 a. rn. EST. which was necessary to break the record. Then, dramatically, at 7:35 a. rn. came word that he was flying over Cape May. N. J., hurtling on a direct line for the airport. He roared on in silence until a few minutes after 8 a. nu. when another radio report placed him in the vicinity of Lakehurst, heading for his goal at a 200-mile-an-hour clip. The minutes ticked off rapidly. Hopes for a record were dimming when the plane shot out of the sky over Floyd Bennett field. Major Doolittle dived for the field without delay. The plane shot down with a roar and the timer’s watch registered 8:26 a. nu Major Doolittle did not stop, however. He sent the ship up again with her motors throbbing and headed for Newark airport in New Jersey, where he landed at 8:34 ta a rn. He broke the Rickenbacker record of 12 hours, 3 minutes. 50 seconds, by a margin of four minutes, 50 seconds. Dawson Is Heard By Women’s G, O. P. Unit Municipal Judge D.
