STONEWALL, Okla., June 8.—The
First State bank of Stonewall, which
officers said was marked for robbery
today by Charles “Pretty Boy” Floyd,
has placed a sign in its front window
“Notice to bank robbers: There is
not enough cash in this bank to be
worth the risk of'robbing it.”
After four robberies, P. S. Case,
president of the bank, determined up-
on a plan of defense, approved by
depositors. The bank now keeps all
except a small amount of its cash in
Ada bank vaults. Only enough money
is on hand to care for an ordinary
day’s business, and if a customer
presents a large draft, an employe
takes him to Ada, 10 miles away, to
Case remarked that if robbers had
raided the bank today, “they’d have
had to borrow money to get out of

cigarette advertising is generally
• silent on this question?
■w-wT-rHEN the truth hurts—it’s only natural
to avoid the subject! Inhaling has long
been an "untouchable” topic in cigarette ad-
vertising. And no wonder! In every tobacco
leaf—even the finest, the mildest—nature hides
certain impurities which, when not removed,
are unkind to delicate membranes!
And since, knowingly or unknowingly, every
smoker inhales some part of the smoke from
his or her cigarette, Lucky Strike developed
that great scientific process which removes cer-
tain impurities. Luckies created that process.
Only Luckies have it!
Do you inhale ? Morethan 20,000 physicians,
after Luckies had been furnished them for tests,
basing their opinions on their smoking experience,
stated that Luckies are less irritating to the
throat than other cigarettes.

ED FOR PAY CUTS
AUSTIN, Texas, June 8.—The
Court of Criminal Appeals Wednes-
day overruled motions for rehearing
in three death penalty cases and only
clemency by the Governor will pre-
vent the execution of the appellants.
The rehearings were denied Rich-
ard Johnson, a negro, for murder of
A. N. (Ted) Nordurft near Wichita
Falls; Charlie Grogans, also negro,
criminal assault in Jefferson County
for criminal assault on a white wo-
man, and Gaudalupe Garza, murder
of J. R. Weathers in Refugio County.
Johnson was given the death pen-
alty for a holdup of Nordurft, a Fort
Worth oil man, and his subsequent
killing while he wassin an automobile
with his financee, Miss Vera Smith,
September 9, 1931. Richard Brown,
a negro and codefendant, was given
the death penalty.

A good many of the candidates for
the legislature in various sections of
the State, and at least one candidate
for Governor, are making much of a
“platform” plank which calls for ex-
emption of homesteads from state
taxation. It should not require long
for the sensible voter to figure out
that when these gentlemen, or then-
opponents, take/ office the matter of
exemption of homesteads will have
been settled by a general vote of the

candidates propose to do in the offices
they are running for than their senti-

nection with the jobs they are ask-
WASHINGTON, June 8.—The Sen-
ate tonight passed the national econ-
omy bill after cutting about $100,-
000,000 off the $238,000,000 savings
provided in the measure as reported
by its bipartisan economy committee.
The bill was approved without a
record vote after a democratic at-
tempt to have it sent back to com-
mittee for new economy recommenda-
tions had been rejected, 43 to 23.
As it passed the senate, the bill
variously was estimated to cut gov-
ernment expenditux-es by $120,000,000 j
Democi-atic members charged Pres-
ident Hoover with “wrecking” the
measure and “butting in” to put
across his furlough plan in place of
a 10 per cent cut. in civilian govern^
The senate today reversed itself
and adopted the Hoover payless fur-
lough plan for government employes
instead of a 10 per sent pay cut. The
vote for the furlough plan was 38
Democx-atic opponents of the fur-
lough plan charged President Hoover
with “butting in” and “wrecking” the
national economy bill.
They estimated the furlough plan
would save $44,000,000 less than the
10 per cent pay cut as originally re-
If so, the savings in the bill would
be reduced to about $146,000,000 com-
pared to the $238,000,000 in the meas-

partisan economy committee.

The announcement from Waco that
Dan Moody will address the people
of McLennan County at Waco Satur-
day disposes of the probleixi of issues
for the campaign. On the assump-
tion that Mr. Moody will be as active
in Steiding’s behalf in 1932 as he
was in 1930, the issue automatically
becomes one of Fergusonism against
There has been perhaps no strang-
er campaign in American politics
than that of two years ago between
two ex-Goveimox-s, neither of whom
was himself a candidate. Mr. Ster-
ling involuntarily became, in the
minds of the people, the embodiment
of Moodyism and Mrs. Ferguson the
submissive figurehead of Ferguson-
ism. It now looks as if we shall
have a repetition of that spectacle.
Mr. Moody will now turn his guns
on the Ferguson record with merci-
less and withering fire. Unless the
impeached Governor has lost, his old
ways, he will return bitterness fox-
bitterness, adding as much as he can,
for heapiixg measure. “Old Jixxx” and
“Little Dan” will be at it hammer
and tongs and if “Old Jim” doesn’t
get the worst of it it will be the first
tiixxe he has failed to get it since Dan
Moody started in on his trail.
