Publicity Man's Suggested
Relationship With Hoo
ver is Aired
! WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 (AP)
Mention of President Hoover in
connection with tariff activities of
the American bottler's of carbon
ate beverages precipitated a heat
ed exchange today before the sen
ate lobby committee between Sen
ator Robinson, republican. Indi
ana, and H. H. Pike. Jr.. a Wall
Street sugar broker.
: The outburst resulted from a
letter written lait February by
Pike to P. A. Staples, of the Cea
' tral Hershey company of ilavana.
which said V. C. D'Arcy. publicity
man for the Coca Cola company,
"has apersonal method of ap
proach to Hoover and is going to
ae that Hoover gets full but con
cise data on the sugar subject."
Pike, who previously had testi
fied that the Coca Cola and Her
shey companies were financing a
campaign by the Bottlers' associa
tion against a high sugar duty in
the tariff bill, said he wes un
able to give the exact source of
his Information, it had come, he
said, from a person who had at
tended a breakfast given by Rob
ert W. Woodruff, president of the
Coca Cola company.
The letter said those present at
the breakfast, in addTTTon to Pike
and Woodruff, were D'Arcy, Mr.
Horsey, export vice preisdeut of
the Coca Cola company, and Ralph
Hayes, publicity vice president of
the Chatham and Phenix National
Leaning across the committer
table, Robinson the only regular
republican on the committee
pointed a finger at the witness and
"That looks to the average man,
I would think, that there was
come backstair method of ap
proach." 'It would not mean that to a
business man," Pike returned."
"We had this little meeting at
breakfast," the witness testified.
"You can count how many people
were there six or eight. We talk
ed about 'what are we going to do
to prevent this wicked increase in
the sugar tariff?' and one of those
people laid to me, 'I think Mr.
D'Arcy can put these sugar facts
before President Hoover.' which is
a perfectly proper thing for him to
do, and I do not remember which
of those men told me that, but
they never told me how he was
going to put It there, and I do
not say that In the memorandum."
Senator Robinson asked Pike if
be thought it was "a fair method
of procedure" to send the informa
tion to Mr. Staples, adding that
"he could tell It to anyone he de
sired." "I think It Is very fair," Pike
"Bandying. the president's name
tround when you today say yon uo
not know what the method was or
what you were talking about
then?" Robinson shot back.
"I did not know, but if I had a
method of putting it before Presi
dent Hoover, I should do so, and I
would tell you so and I would be
very proud of having the ability,"
COLUMBUS. Ohio, Jan. 8.
(AP) The state supreme court
today rejected the motion of Dr.
James H. Snook, former Ohio
State university professor, for re
hearing of his appeal from a sen
tence of death In the electric
chair. January 31. for the murder
last June 13, of Theora Hlx, Ohio
; State co-ed.
A Attorney fof Snook tonight
were prepared to appeal to the
United States supreme court. The
ruling today was the last move
in the Ohio Bupreme court which
previously had overruled his dual
appeal from the Franklin county
commoH pleas court conviction.
Attorney Arthur Frlcke. Cln
rlnnati, chief counsel for Dr.
Snook, said an appeal to the Unit
ed States supreme court will be
made "very soon."
Action of the Ohio court left
Dr. Snook with only two chances
cf escaping death, the United
States supreme court, and an ap
peal for executive clemency to
Governor Myers Y. Cooper.
The court did not go into the
request of the defense for a writ
ten opinion on its reasons for re
jecting the appeal.
