part of it is there will be no losers and there is no limit |
to the amount or size of these checks, as the candidates I

as large as they wish. This Plan is Definitely New, De
cidedly Different and Perfectly Dignified so that no one ,
may have any fear in entering this drive as it is being
conducted on a very high plane and has been used sue- 1
oefesfully on many newspajjers throughout the country.
It has been endorsed and recommended by many young
women and housewives as a means of earning big divi
dends for any effort put forth.
The big and distinctive feature
of the campaign Is the fact tbat
there will be no losers and you
can earn according to your ability
to sell your friend^ and acquaint
ances THE FRANKLIN TIMEP.

Why This Campaign
It Is the belief of the publisher
that this is a good time for busi
ness to undertake new enterprises
as nothing can be accomplished
by idly waiting for the return of
better times. It Is up to every
institution, large or small, to un
dertake new ways and means of
stimulating activity. For that very
reason these pay checks and prises
have been made ready for distri
bution to the people of Franklin
County and vicinity.

A. B. C. STORE
The formal opening of the A.
B. C. Store in Franklin County
at Loulsburg was on Saturday
morning, although in reality it
had opened about < o'clock Thurs
day afternoon when ten pints
were sold in order to make Its
opening a reality. Sales were
made all through the day Friday,
although the removal of the drugs
and fixtures of Mr. W. A. Andrews
was going on and carpenters were
at work on remodeling the store
for the A. B. C's. The best of
order prevailed among the large
crowds who visited the store,
some to make purchases and some
through the curiosity to see whis
key sold legally in Franklin. Fri
days sales amounted to $116.15
and Saturdays sales amounted to
$287. SB. At this time the higher
priced whiskeis had not been re
Chief of Police C. E. Pace com
menting on the store stated that
he saw no disorder occasioned by
it and was satisfied that if any
change at all was brought about
it was for the better conditions.
Discussing the question of the
store with Mr. W. N. Fuller,
County Auditor, who is also sec
retary to the Board of Control,
the TIMES reporter was informed
that in each case of the purchase
of whiskey the Board demanded
and received a contract from the
manufacturer or distributor set
ting forth the agreement that no
whiBkles were to be paid for un
til sold and relieving the County
of Franklin of all liability In con
nection with the sale.
It was rumored around town
j Thursday that an Injunction to
(stop the opening was being pre
pared and later that the officers
i in charge had been cited to ap
: pear before the court for con
I tempt, but neither of these rumors
could be confirmed and from all
information the TIMES could get
were only rumors.
Stocks of whiskey and sales
I are continuing In an even and
orderly manner with no apparent
rush or excitement.
The Franklinton store expects
to open today, according to in
formation received here, and will

Farmers have received $1,127.
000,000 since 1933 for reducing
crop production under y^AA's plan
of federal control.
In shocked Bilence, the adminis

White House. They talked It over
with the President for two hours.
They emerged saying no decision
had been reached on what to do.

Senator Costigan (D-Colo) said
that "unless convinced that other
early action will more definitely
serve the public good." he will
press for action on his amendment
to give Congress the right to reg
ulate agricultural production ? -
and business and industry as well.
The opinion of the court ma
jority. read by Justice Roberts,
was called a "poltical stump
speech" by irate Senator Bank
head (D-Ala). whose cotton con
trol act awaits a ruling by the
Justices on its validity.
Calling the decision "poor law."
Bankhead said he had no doubt
but that the court also would
throw out the cotton act. Then
was similar fear for survival of
the Kerr-Smith tobacco law. the
potato Control act. and similar
farm measures, as well as the
more important social security,
Guffey coal control, and Wagner
labor disputes laws.
Justice Roberts held that AAA

"beyond the powers delegated to
the federal government."
In a vehement dissent. Justices
Stone. Brandeis and Cardozo de
clared that "courts are not the
only agency of government that
must be assumed to have the
capacity to govern."
Important questions went un

surrounding the court's action.
As organized farm leaders pro

welfare" ? Which until today had
never been defined or limited by
the high tribunal.
Holding that "Justice Story's
theory" of this power "is the cor
rect one," Roberts added that "he
makes it clear that the powers of
taxation and appropriation extend
only to matters of national, as
distinguished from local welfare."

Chief of police C. E. Pace 'Is
very anxious tbat all persona in
Loutsburg who are required to
get city license tags get them at
once and display them on their
cars and trucks. He informs the
TIMES that beginning on the
fifteenth of January he will cite
all who are not displaying their
tags before Mayor Webb to be
dealt with. He thinks this will
coat the owners more than the
tag and therefore is anxious that
the embarrassment be eared the
owners as well as himself.
