When Clyde L. Seavey, chairman of the commission, prepared to call the flrst open hearing, there were so many interested parties present that he had to order transfer of the proceedings from the commissioner's hearing room to a superior court room in the city hall. There followed immediately the suggestion that to determine the extent of operations by unregulated shippers, questionaires be sent to many shippers in the state requesting the information that was expected to solve the problem. The secretary of tlie commission was ordered to prepare the questionaire and mail out copies. Dean Emery E.

EXTRA WHEAT TURNED OVER TO JOBLESS Senate Passes Capper Resolution Giving 40,-000,000 Bushels To Poor WASHINGTON, Jan. I—(UP) — Forty million bushels of Farm Board wheat were appropriated by the Senate today to feed the nation's unemployed. It was the first direct federal relief proposal approved by either house. The Senate passed and sect to the House the Capper Joint resolution directing the Farm Board to place this amount, one-fourth of Its great store, at the disposal of the Red Cross and other relief agencies to be milled and furnished free to destitute and needy ! persons. , The action followed testimony 1 by Governor Gifford Pinchot of j Pennsylvania, and John L. Lewis . of the United Mine workers, toll-j ing of dire suffering in Pennsyl. vania and other mining states. Lewis demanded relief for “a destitute population of more than 1.200.000.” Pinchot attacked the administration for Its opposition to federal relief. Afterwards two more futile bal-I lots were taken in au unsuccess-J ful effort to break the deadlock [ over the election of a Senate president pro-tem. The western independent Republicans continued to refuse to support Senator Geo. H. Moses, Repn., N. H. Meanwhile the House itself showed its teeth in the mutter of economy, by slashing several rnil-| lions from the Arst of the appro-| prlatlon bills. The new Democratic control brought out the first deficiency bill, carrying more than 1100.000.000 to run the government for the next alx months, with many funds heavily reduced. The Senate debate over the Caliper bill, and the Senate manufactures committee hearing on the Costigan-Lafollette bills for money relief of farm $250,000,000 to $375,000,000 to the unemployed, both developed new and startling testimony. Proponents of the measure believe it has a good chance of House passage, but some doubt President Hoover will approve lt, because its relief is direct from the government to the unemployed through the Red Cross and other relief agencies.

The court set aside widespread grain rate reductions ordered by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1928, as a readjustment In favor of agriculture. ln writing a unanimous opinion upon the case, Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes took judicial notice of the depression. "There can be no question as to the change of conditions on which | the new hearing was asked," Hughes said, commenting on claims of carriers that freight revenues had declined heavily and they were losing $20,000,000 a year by the rate cuts.” Hughes noted the commission’s hearings in 3928 "pertain to a different economic era” and that "overruling economic forces” made the record ‘‘irresponsive to present conditions.” Kentucky Judge Decides Against Court Reporter MT. STERLING, Ky., Jan. 4— (UP)—Judge Henry R. Prewitt of Montgomery county circuit court tonight issued a final ruling barring John T. Moutoux, staff correspondent of the Knoxville (Tenn.) News-Sentinel, fiom his court "until such time as that newspaper retracts false and libelous statements.” The commonwealth had demanded that Moutoux show cause why he should not be barred from court because of the editorial attitude of the News-Sentinel in comment upon the court history of cases growing out of the Harlan county coal mine labor troubles. Earlier today, Judge Prewitt made a companion ruling excluding any representative of the Knoxville News-Sentinel from his court until the demanded retraction had been made. Betnon J. Suing, editor of the News-Sentinel, last week specifically refused to make such retraction. Journals Furnish Bandit Spirit, Says Af. E. Bishop DALLAS.

C.-Georgla game. The Trojans wero rated first, with a record of nine victories and one defeat, while Tulane, undefeated and 11 times a winner, wns placed second. The system takes into account the ability of the teams met by the school to be rated, and Troy's handling of its difficult schedule placed it a few points above the New- Orleans Institution, whose team had met several weak opponents. The outcome of thc New Year's Day game ls regarded as a vindication of Professor Dickinson’s system. DEAN REID M’CLUNG TO ADDRESS BAR Dean Held L.

Ore., Jan. 4.— (UP)—The good old Roman cua-tom of "biting the thumb'* to display emotions backfired loday for Mrs. Carrie Lodge. She was fined 16. Mrs. Lodge “thumbed" Patrolman Hamniersley when he told ber to drive atralgbt ahead instead of making a left turn. Tbe copper lacked a sense of humor. Prof. Morkovin has beeu lecturing on the socology of films at S. C. for two years, stressing the scientific, educational, and artistic possibilities of motion pictures. "It is clear,” he statea, “tbat educational Institutions and society cannot remain aloof and indifferent to such a powerful Instrument of social control as the photoplay, which influences and shapes the minds of adults, adolescents, and children everywhere In the world as possibly nothing else In the bistory of civlization has done. “The claim that ln over-commur-clalization the moton picture Industry haa aometlmes abused tbis hould be an additioual Incentive for social and educatonal inati-tutlons to take the Initiative in the ‘new cinema' movement. Mere negative attitudes are not sufficient ; constructive methods of seeking and finding new ways are dictated by the scientific spirit of the era. These ideas of course have been expressed in many articles, numerous discussions, aud several books. "We believe that there is no location more favorable f»r the crystallization of these Ideas than Los Angeles, and that Is why we are entering upon this pioneer enterprise, prooeedlug from the ths- significant instrument and perhaps orsticsl to experimentation.
