(alls Measure Unfair; Favors Senatorial District Plan
Says Act Puts Into Operation Contradictory Methods of Choice
HARRISBURG, April 8 -Governor ffinchot late yesterday vetoed the McClure bill to provide a constitutional convention on repeal of t^ie Eighteenth Amendment.
The Governor contended th" measure was "not a fair bill.”
He declared he would approve a bill providing for tile election of delegates by Senatorial districts.
This plan would give Philadelphia eight and Allegheny county six of the .80 delegates to be elected, and place the balance of power largely in the rural districts.
The bill sponsored by Senator John J. McClure, of Delaware County, provided for the election of 51 delegates, 17 at large and one from each of the 34 Congressional districts in the state.
Puichot declared this bill would put in operation at the same time two contradictory methods of choosing delegate-, and would nullify the will of the people, if 20 Congressional j cli'tricts elected delegates pledged nim tv y and the 17 delegates at large ti .ne pledged the opposite way.”
To give a fair expression of public opinion, tile governor said, the delegates either .should all be elected by districts, or all elected at large.
He voiced an objection, however, to the election of all delegates at large because that 'would result in discrimination against those parts of the state in which elections are commonly conducted without fraud.” "This bill,” the governor Announced In his veto message, "provides for a convention to ratify or reject the proposed amendment to the Constitution of the United States repealing the Eighteenth amendment.
"The people have a right to pass upon this question in the manner prescribed by Congress. I am ready Jo approve a fair and proper bill for calling such a convention. But this is not a fair bill.

According to Attorney J. Bolton Weeks, under present practices of taxing costs in criminal cases, defendants are being compelled to pay many thousands of dollars perhaps tens of thousands of dollars -more than they should.”
Mr. Weeks made this statement In a protest against costs in excess of $4000, assessed against Harry Ave-i ac!:, of Philadelphia, upon whom costs were imposed by a jury in the arson trial of a year ago. JI > argued before Judges Fronefield. Broomall and MacDade yesterday, that because 30 indictments had been drawn by the district attorney's office, and Av crack w as convicted on only one indictment, costs have been taxed in the other 29 indictments.
This multiplication of costs *29 times is utterly unjustified bv statute and court decisions,*’ declared the lawyer, who u fended Av crack in the trial.
Mr. Weeks made plain that fie offered no criticism of the district attorneys office in drawing the number of indictments, nor of the clerk of court's office in figuring costs as it did, but contended that "a court opinion on how to tax rests will h'fip in future situations.”
Mr. Weeks informed the Court that $2755 had been put down as costs for the district attorney’s office There ss a charge of $15 for drawing each indictment and a charge of $5 a day for each day of trial after the first day In this case there were IT days of tr.ai.

"We have taken this matter for granted, failing to appreciate the labors of the patriots, who brought the great reform to fruition. From the beginning of history the liquor traffic has waged war on the human race, and no land was ever more damned by it than America. Finally In 1819, The Darby Association for Discouraging the Unnecessary Use of Spiritous Liquors issued an address protesting against (he prevailing serving of liquors in such quantities and to anyone asking for it. Rapidly the sentiment against the traffic mini and whiskey were the convicts) increased, and the efforts to stay the ravages of that traffic crystallized into the temperance societies.
In 1834 all these societies in the county joined in forming the Delaware County Temperance Society. In addition to the foregoing, the citizens of the county, who had had business at the Court House in Chest eland many of whom had attended court as jurors and parties, could not forget their experiences.

WASHINGTON, April 8 ‘INS* — The leading airship experts of the ! nation today were sought by the House Naval Affairs Sub-committee on Aeronautics in an effort to fathom the mystery of the real cause of the Akron s tragic plunge into the ocean.
Admitting the first session of the inquisitorial body failed to give an answer to the question, members were engaged In canvassing a list of experts.
They were hopeful that Lieutenant Commander H. V. Wiley and the enlisted men survivors, R. K. Deal and M. F, Erwin, may be able to throw more light upon the tragedy after they have had a chance to study and i * fleet.
Chairman Vinson, Democrat, of Georgia, of the Naval Affairs Committee, said engineers of the Bureau of Standards, will examine the metal in the all.ship if pieces are recovered.
It is expected that Commander C, F Jiosendahl, the Navy’s leading airship skipper and former commander of the Akion; Dr. Karl Arnstein, chief builder, and many other engineers and experts will la* summoned.
Out of tile initial testimony of the three survivors came this question: Did the giant airship begin cracking up and then start to fall, or did the crack up come after she was inevitably plunging downward”
Ll. Commander Wiley, discussing the testimony of the enlisted men who said they saw girders cracking, has found difficulty in fixing the exact time of th** various experiences of the trio of survivors.
