President Hoover believes tfiat

act under federal officers Is pro
ceeding without excessive use of
authority and that as the killing
of Mrs. Lillian De King at Aurora.
Ill- was done by state officers.
there Is no cause for federal gov

airs, do King waa kuied in a
raid on her home when Deputy
Sheriff Roy Smith fired upon her
and state authorities immediately
started an investigation of the in
cident.
Hoover Keeps Ere v
On Federal Officers
- Mr, Hoover feels that .the fed
eral enforcement authorities are
operating uader -stringent orders
as regards . thei luse . of . force In
making arrests for prohibition vK
olations. Since he took office there
has not been a case of any person
being killed by prohibition agents
in the enforcement of the law. The
order, which the -president consid
lvely prevented use of
undue authority, was one promul
gated more than , a year ago by
the treasury. It ordered prohibi
tion, agents not to use their wea
pons except to protect their lives
or to prevent the , commission , of
a felony.

Superintendent George Hug and
Principal J.XC. . Nelson spoke on
the smoking situation before a
-boys assembly at the high school
Friday morning. Previous to the
administrator's talks, Dr. Edward
Lee Russell of the child health
demonstration talked n phases of
social hygieae. Mr. Nelson Jold the
boys -that no change tad been
made in the smoking boundaries
but cautioned them that; Any boy
caught? smoking on the school
grounds would be suspended im
mediately. r . ,
Superintendent Hug appealed to
the boys to watch their smoking
habits because. of the. impression
" they give townspeople and rlsitors
of the high school pupils. He
pointed out that according to law
most high school boys had no right
to smoke any place and that both
a personal and schoolrtide should
guide them in the milter which
