Crowds Gather At Trial Of Accused Costello Widow

Deduction Of
Unpaid Loans
WASHINGTON, Aug. 5. - ()-
Farm administrators hoped today
that President Roosevelt would bring
them safely past a crisis in their
plans for cutting the production of
cotton and wheat.
From him they sought an early
ruling through which payments of-
fered farmers to join in reduction
programs could be definitely exempt-
ed from claims the government al-
ready has against many of them.
The number of debtors among
wheat and cotton growers was re-
ported as so large that if sums due
the government were deducted they
would reduce substantially, probably
50 per cent, the $200,000,000 which
administrators plan to distribute
among them in the next 60 days.
Interpretations of a law enacted
in 1875 were made by some officials
to the effect that the government
must withhold amounts due to it in
making payments. Administrators
asked Attorney General Cummings
for a ruling. He in turn, presented
the matter to the President for final
Checks Are Withheld
Until the policy of the adminis-
tration is made clear on this point,
the bulk of checks to cotton grow-
ers are being withheld. If offsets
are necessary, it will meanethat the
payments due those obligated to the
government will have to be separated
f r o m those without obligations,
necessitating further delays.
Farmers owe $139,335,742 in seed,
feed and crop production loans, a
majority to cotton and wheat grow-
ers. It is estimated that in some
states at least half of them have
unpaid loans of this type, that "the
payments to these two groups of
farmers may be subject to offsets
of nearly $100,000,000 for all debts
owed the government.
The regional agricultural credit
corporations and the intermediate
credit banks are other government
agencies besides seed loan offices with
sums due.
$100,000,000 Available
Of $70,982,.175 in seed and feed
loans made from 1921 to 1931, in-
clusive. The unpaid balance now
amounts to $39,813,553, all in default.
In 1932, $64,204,300 was advanced
to farmers and $42,740, 721 remains
in default. This year $56,781,468 was
loaned to 627,294 farmers, the loans
being due this fall.
More than $100,000,000 is sched-
uled for distribution among cotton
farmers in return for their agree-
ments to plow up from 25 to 50 per
cent of their growing crop. Many
already have completed their plow-

Young Dash Sensation
Decides On Ohio State
The news that Jesse Owens, star
colored trackster from Cleveland, O.,
has applied'for admittance into Ohio
State University came as quite a dis-
appointment to Charlie Hoyt, Wol-
verine track mentor. Thirty-five oth-
er schools had approached Owens,
it is reported.
The Buckeye schoolboy who estab-
lished world records in both the 100-
and 220-yard dashes in the last in-
terscholastic track meeet had indi-
cated that he might attend Michigan
next year. His presence on an oppos-
ing Big Ten teain may be influential
in ending Michigan's supremacy in
track. The Wolves have won five
titles in indoor and outdoor track in
the last three years.

Kentucky Has
Typical Fight
Over Election
HARLAN, Ky., Aug. 5.-(!T)-Blaz-
ing guns and exploding dynamite,
injuring three men, marked the
start today of the primary election
in Harlan county, despite the pres-
ence of four companies of National
Guardsmen, who had been ordered
on duty as the result of pre-elec-
tion outbreaks Thursday and Friday,
vihen two were killed.
The men injured today were Robert
Gilbert, 32, who may lose the sight
of one eye; Theodore Middleton, re-
signed police chief of Harlan and
candidate for the Republican nom-
ination for sheriff, leg injury, and
Jim Cawood, 37,. of Evarts, two fing-
ers shot off.
They said they were targets of an
outbreak at the precinct of the R. C.
Tway Coal Co. camp, a mile south
of here.
Officers were told they went to
the precinct with about a dozen other
Imen ten minutes before opening of
the polls to inspect the ballot box,
in accordance with a signed agree-
ment of two factions, for representa-
tives of each side to open boxes and
determine if they were empty before
the vote started.
'A controversy developed between
the two groups, and Middleton and
his supporters ran from the mine
office building, seeking cover beneath
the concrete porch, which is about
eight feet high. Gilbert said about
500 shots were fired from machine
guns and rifles, and a stick of dy-
namite attached to a piece of coal
was then exploded.

Settle Shown In Gondola Whic Crashed Yesterday





-Associated Press Photo
Lieut.-Com. T. G. W. Settle of the United States navy is shown inside the gondola of the balloon
which was specially built for his solo light into the stratosphere from Chicago.

Settle's Balloon
Settles To End
Climb To Fame
CHICAGO, Aug. 5.-()-Man's
latest attempt to pierce the earth's
atmosphere at a greater height than
ever before ended abruptly this
morning when Lieut.-Com. T. G. W.
Settle came to earth in a Chicago
railroad yards. Al leaky top valve
was blamed.
The huge balloon, "The Century
of Progress" in which the commander
hoped to break existing altitude rec-
ords and obtain valuable scientific
data heretofore unknown to man,
descended within about ten minutes
after the hop-off at Soldier field.
Commander Settle was not injured,
and the balloon, which had risen ap-
parently to a height of approximately
5,000 feet, was apparently not seri-
ously damaged when it landed in the
yards of the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railroad at 14th and Canal
streets. There was a small dent in
the bottom of the gondola, however,
and it was possible that the bag it-
self was damaged.
Plans Another Attempt
Commander Settle said a further
inspection would be necessary to de-
termine the exact extent of the dam-
age. He appeared happy over the fact.
'that the apparent damage was not
extensive and expressed hope for an-
other trial even before navy men, his,
ground crew and others, had the big
bag packed up.
"I have hopes of attempting the,
ascension again," he said, "after re-
pairs have been made to the balloon
and weather conditions have been
checked for a favorable occasion."
The commander's wife was among
the first to reach his side and kissed
him repeatedly, joyful that he had
escaped unscathed.
"I arose to an altitude of about
5,000 feet" the commander said,
"~and opened a valve to level off. T.'
wished to stay at that height for a
while. The valve, however, stuck, and
the balloon started down. 'I started-
toballast out, butdthe balloon con-
tinnied its descent and could not
be righted."
In all, Commander Settle tossed
overboard 55 bags of ballast, each of.
which weighed 40 pounds, after his

tified. Attaches of a hospital said it
was doubtful if he would recover.
The milling crowd including per-
sons smoking, menaced the highly
inflammable gas bag.
More shocked, perhaps, than Com-
mander Settle himself, was Raymond
Thomas, yardman for the Burlington
He had not known of the flight
until the big balloon almost landed
on top of him. He said:
"I didn't know whether the world
was coming to an end or not-but
I stopped all trains anyway."
First to reach the fallen balloon
was David Cohen, a cab driver. He
said Commander Settle's first words,
as he popped his head out of the
gondola, were:
"I'm okay. Call my wife."
He then excitedly waved away the
first to arrive shouting:
"Get those cigarets away. Keep all
fire away!"
Three railroad men grabbed ropes
and tied the balloon to the tracks.
Finals In Golf
Tourney To Be
Played Today
Mrs. James Cissel and Miss Jean
Kyer will tee off at 2 p. m. today at
the Barton Hills Country Club to
match strokes for the championship
of the seventh annual women's city
golf tournament.
This is the fourth time that the
two women have met in the finals
of the tourney, and due to the fact
that Mrs. Cissel has won the previous
three matches and carded an 84 in
her first round, showing that she is
distinctly. on her game, she rules
a slight favorite to walk off with
the Arnold trophy after today's bat-
Miss Kyer, however, is quite cap-
able of upsetting her opponent. Her
play in the recent state champion-
ship, in which she was medalist and
runner-up, and her consistently good
golf 'in the local tourney are indi-
cative of this fact.
Both women won their semi-finals
matches yesterday by 4 and 3 mar-
gins, Mrs. Cissel winning with ease
over Miss Helen Gustine, while Miss
Kyer was experiencing considerablea
difficulty in eliminating the Univer-'

Labor Trouble'
Is Agreed To

ries the signature of every great labor
leader and every great industrial
leader on the two advisory boards of

act of economic statesmanship. I
earnestly commend it to the public
Provides a Tribunal
"This joint appeal proposes the
creation of a distinguished tribunal
to pass promptly on any case of
hardship or dispute that may arise
from interpretation or application of
the President's re-employment agree-
ment. The advantages of this recom-
mendation are plain and I accept it
and hereby appoint the men it pro-
poses whose ilames will carry their
own commendation to the Country."
The President appointed the na-
tional labor tribunal a few hours
after he had won an agreement to
end the strike in the Pennsylvania
coal fields, involving 7,000 workers
and threatening to effect 200,000
Hugh Johnson, industrial admin-
istrator, brought the history-making
offer of labor and management to
adjust their differences through the
national tribunal to the summer
White House by airplane late last
Settles Coal Problem
The President, in conferences with
Johnson early this morning, settled
the coal strike problem. Just before
noon today he issued the statement
putting into force the Nation-wide
strike moratorium.
As is the case in the Pennsylvania
strike settlement, it is expected that
the status quo of all existing work-
ing agreements be maintained during
adjustment-of differences.
Senator Wagner, who is chairman
of the labor tribunal, has been a
leader in Congress on labor legis-
lation. He is serving his second term
in the Senate and is a. former New
York judge.
Swope and Kirstein were named
together with George Berry, presi-
dent of the Pressmen's Union, as
members of the board of three to
arbitrate the Pennsylvania coal prob-

the establishment of codes regulating
hours of work and wages for the coal
industry. Hearings will start before
Gen. Johnson on these on August 9.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 5.-(,P)-The
text of today's appeal by the NRA in-
dustrial and labor advisory boards
for peace between capital and labor
"The country in the past few
weeks has had remarkable evidence
of co-operation in the common cause
of restroing employment and increas-
ing purchasing powers.
"Industrial codes are being intro-
duced, considered, and put into ef-
fect with all possible dispatch, and
the number of firms coming under
the President's re-employment agree-
ment is inspiring.
"This gratifying process may be
endangered by differing interpreta-
tions of the President's re-employ-
ment agreement by some employers
and employees.
"The industrial and labor advisory
boards jointly appeal to all those as-
sociated with industry-owners, man-
agers and employees-to unite in the
preservation of industrial peace.
Strikes Peril Purpose
"Strikes and lockouts will increase
unemployment and create a condition
clearly out of harmony with the spirit
and purpose of the Industrial Re-
covery Act.
"Through the application of the
act the Government is sincerely en-
deavvoring to overcome unemploy-
ment through a nationwide reduction
in the hours of work and to increase
purchasing power through an in-
crease in wage rates.
"This objective can only be reached
through co-operation on the. part of
all- those associated with industry.
"In order to develop the greatest
degree of co-operation and the high-
est type of service on the part of
management and labor, we urge that
all causs of iritation and discontent
be removed.
