Need Of Cheap Fertilizer, Em- ployment Part of Problems WASHINGTON—(UP)—Pres- ident Roosevelt today charged the southern states with par- tial responsibility for the na- tion's "economic unbalance" and called on southern industrialists and congress "to do something about it." Mr. Roosevelt set forth his views in a brief but pointed mes- sage to a conference of prom- inent southern leaders called by Director Lowell Mellett of the National Emergency council, at the chief executive's request. "It is my conviction," the pre- sident said, "that the south rap- resents right now the nation's No. 1 economic problem — the nation's problem, not merely the South's.

RENDER RIDING CAUSES tRAGIC CAR ACCIDENTS A 4th of July tragedy in a nearby city took the life of a young lady who rode the front fender of an auto- mobile. How many young people have lost their lives by resorting to such mode of transportation is not known but such accidents occur so often as to become a menace. In spite of their occurrence drivers of cars permit fenders to be used for seating persons at the hazard of death or serious injury. There seems to be no law to protect anyone from such rash judgment as riding on car fenders. It really should not be necessary to enact laws to re- strain such acts but their recurrence at regular intervals suggests putting more responsibility on drivers of cars. At times it may seem very handy to seat persons oft fenders or permit them to stand on the running b...

The unique case arose in U. S. District Court over the murder of a 33-year-old ne- gro, Qeorge A. Hanson, last April. According to the testi- mony, Hanson was struck on the head with a ham- mer when he returned to the home of Kattie Slaugh- ter of Dixon Court, and com- plained of the quality of a drink he had purchased. Leaving the house, he staggered to the nearby home of Emma Craig, 40, and during the course of another quarrel was struck on the head with a bottle. He died a few hours later.
