good for cooking, though it lacks

TWENTY-TWO PAGES THIS WEEK
GOVERNOR APPOINTS WIFE
The governor of Alabama has
appointed his wife, Mrs. Dixie Bibb
Graves, to the seat in the United
States Senate made vacant when
President Roosevelt named Sen.
Hugo Black as a member of the
Supreme Court. Mrs. Graves will
serve until April of next year when
a special election will be held. She
will be on the pay roll six months
and will be in the session of the up
per house of Congress for some
six weeks next year. She has never
held office before, but has been a
member of the D. A. R. and the U.
It has been persistently rumored
that Governor Graves hopes to
succeed his wife in the ofifce to
which he has appointed her and
for which he will not be eligible un
til his present term of office ex
George Penn, state highway pa
trolman, twenty-five years old,
was killed near Asheville Sunday
night. He was shot three times and
beaten by unknown assailants. He
was on duty at a weighing station
and gave chase to a speeding car.
Not content with shooting and
beating, the assasins drove their
car over the dying man. Every ef
fort is being made to apprehend
THREAT OF NEW PARTY
The diferences between leaders
of the Democratic party and the
sharp dissensions during the last
session of congress indicated that
unless the splits could be healed, a
new party might come into exist
ence. Added to this is the fact that
John L. Lewis, leader of the C. I.
0., is dissatisfied with the aid he
has received from the gov
ernment and threatens to swing
his forces into the movement for
a third party. Many conservative
Democrats felt that President
Roosevelt and Secretary Wallace
encouraged sitdown strikes and
other tactics employed by organiz
ed labor, but Lewis thinks too little
was done for the cause. Leaders
are deeply concerned over the situ
ation, which may prove highly en
couraging to Republicans.

The war between the Chinese
and the Japanese has already rais
ed international complications be
yond its own importance. Damage
done to the interests of other na
tions, not to mention the hitting of
an American by a shell and the kill
ing of a seaman, are evidence of
the fact that relations between na
tions may become strained and ev
en dangerous. Americans in China
are urged to leave as rapidly as
possible and many have already
been taken to Manila, where an
earthquake conincident with their
arrival added to their distress.
About a million refugees are said
to have left their homes, though
this includes many Chinese who
have sought safety away from the
war zone, which surrounds Shang
hai. China is said to be making the
most united defense of years in
her effort to repel the enemy. Ja
pan has rushed thousands of troops
to reinforce those in action. In a .
bombing attack on Monday 400
non-fighters were killed in Shang
hai, and among the many wounded
were three Americans.
Japan plans to take over the pri
vate wealth of her citizens and the
country is being placed under strict
regime, that funds and food may
be available in the event that the
war drags slowly on.
Chinese in America have con
tributed nearly a million and a half
dollars to aid their country.
