AY 29, 1930

(From The Associated Press)
House Votes Contempt
A contempt citation against Dr.
Frances E. Townsend and two of his
lieutenants in the Old Age Revolving
Pensions, Ltd., was voted by the House
with instructions for the case to be
put in the hands of the United States
District Attorney.
Rep. Thomas L. Blanton (Dem.,-
Tex.) the "badboy" of the House,
stated that any contempt action
against the aged leader should be
tried in the House instead of in a
Federal Court. However, Speaker
Joseph W. Byrns ruled the Texan out
of order, and the motion to have the
Federal attorney take action was fol-
Representative Main, Battle Creek,
voted againsti,,citing Townsend for
contempt and stated that the reper-
cussions from the resolution would be
precisely what the committee does
not want, and that the aged doctor
would be held up as a martyr to the
Tax Bill Reported
A tax bill will be reported to the
Senate today members of the Senate
Finance committee prophesied yes-
terday. The new bill is expected to
be virtually the same as the compro-
mise plan worked out by the Com-
According to officials of the Treas-
ury department a carefully planned
method of helping the small corpora-
tion devote its earnings to company
expansion and not to pay the pro-
posed high taxes on undistributed
profits has been arranged.
The Finance Committee of the up-
per house has long been in disagree-
ment on the question of taxing the
undistributed corporate income, for
the President wanted a high levy,
applied gradually, .on such earnings
but the committee refused to accede
to the demands or desires of the Pres-
Revolt In Nicaragua
Revolt has once again broken out
in Nicaragua, and the new insurrec-
tion has been supported by several
units of the National army.
According to officials in the govern-
ment the rebellion was especially
serious on the east or Caribbean
Coast. The movement, officials said,
was- designed for the overthrow of
President Juan B. Sacasa, one-time
minister to Washington, in favor of
the head of the national army, which
was trained by U. S. Marines.
So far no casualaties have been
reported despite an unconfirmed re-
port in San Jose and Costa Rica that
five soldiers of the national guard
had been slain. Dispatches from
Nicauragua said that a state of siege
might be invoked.
France Has Strikes
The French Government, appar-
ently alarmed over the rapid break-
out of strikes in various factories
throughout , the nation, f o r c e d
through an "agreement in principle"
between operators and workers.
Workers in arms factories, crafts-
men in cartridge and airplane plants
joined the strike movement which
broke out first in the great Renault
automobile factories.

A summary'of the plants affected
by the strikes is as follows: Renault
(auto) 34,000; Citroen (auto) 15,000;
Gevelot (cartridges) 1,600; Nieuport
(planes) 900; La Valette (metals)
400; Farman (planes) 100.
The efforts of Leon Blum, the so-
cialist leader who is expected to be-
come the new French premier, to ad-
just the differences between the work-
ers and the operators brought only
words of discouragement from Al-
fred Costes, Communist leader in the
Chamber of Deputies.
It was believed widely last night
that some employees working in the
Sambre Valley, the fortified zone
where the army a few days ago tested
its wartime measures, might also
join the 'general strike.

Surgery Department Advises On
First-Aid For Auto Accidents;

Many Fatalities Prevented
Each Year By Emergency
The department of surgery of the
University, realizing that, as summer
approaches, the roads will be crowded
with automobiles heading for the golf
links, cool lakes, or vacation homes,
and that the driver's attention is often
dulled by heat or distracted by sight-
;eeing, has announced a number of
practical first-aic? measures to be used
in case of an accident.
The statistical branch of the de-
partment reports that last year auto-
mobile accidents killed 36,800 per-
,ons and injured 864,000, a casualty
rate higher than that sustained by the
A.E.F. during the World War. A
knowledge of the fundamentals of
first-aid, the department has an-
aounced, would serve to save many
lives lost in these accidents, and the
iollowing measures to be applied at
:he scene of the accident have been
Perhaps the most important of all
is to stop bleeding immediately.

fractures of the legs, arms or skull,
the former often compound, with a
break in the skin at the site of the
fracture and a contamination of the
wound with dirt and clothing, the
poor condition of accident victims on
arrival at a hospital is very often
due largely to the loss of blood. Firm,
continuous pressure on the bleeding
point with the hand, and the cleanest
piece of cloth availabl will control
most hemorrhages. leeding from
large wounds on the arm or leg can
be stopped bya tourniquet applied
above the elbow or knee. Such a
tourniquet should never be kept on
for more than an hour.
Those who survive wrecks with cuts
or bruises, the department of surgery
advises, should be taken to the near-
est doctor for the determination of the
real extent of injury. In the case of
persons seriously damaged with in-
ternal injuries, fractures of the skull,
spine, pelvis or long bones, the gravity
of the injury is usually evidenced
by their extent, loss of consciousness
and a weak pulse.
Such cases may be made worse by
being moved, and since most accidents
occur on well-traveled highways, it is
best to call an ambulance instead of
putting the victim in the back seat
of a car and driving him to the hos-
pital at high speed. Until the am-
bulance arrivessthedpatient should be
kept as warm and comfortable as pos-
The last suggestion, and one which
can help make much of the above
unnecessary is "Always drive safely."
