Texas Professor Takes Up Cudgel Against Flappers Special to The New*. Austin. Tex.. Sept. 6.--Before 600 teachers of the Central Texas Teachers' Institute in session in Austin, Dr. Frederick Eby, professor "of education in the University of Texas and acting conductor of the institute, followed the lead of President W. B. Bizzell of A. and M. College before the teachers' institute at College Station in bringing the flapper and jellybean to task. "Why do flappers flao? "Why do we have jellybeans? What should the school do to get rid of these types of young people? These were some of the questions asked and implied by Dr. Eby. It was' declared by Dr. Eby that "we have flappers and jellybeans because we do not teach with a purpose; because we do not motivate education with an end in view which must be secured by the student." According- to Dr. Eby this is the REPUBLICAN NOMINATION REFUSED BECAUSE OF PRESS OF BUSINESS. Staff Special to The News. Austin. Tex.. Sept. 6 Dr. E. P. Wilmot president of the Austin National Bank, has declined the nomination for United States senator made by the republican party in convention at Fort Worth in August. In a letter dated Aug. 12 and addressed to Hon. R^B. Creager, chairman of the state republican executive committe, Dr. Wilmot declined the nomination. This letter was made public today, as follows: "Since my return from Fort Worth, followed by the announcement of Eoth. Governor Neff and Senator Davidson vehemently asserted that they were the servants .of all the people and not of any clique -or coterie of persons. Likewise Earle Mayfield said he was going to Washington "to represent all the people without respect to religion or creed." Governor Neff was also given an uuroariaus^reception when he said the law was above them all, the employer and the employe and capital and labor; that all must come under the law in ^Tesas. and that he was determined that they 'should do 'so. When the three speeches were finished Dr. John G. Cranberry, professor of psychology at Southwestern University at Georgetown, jumped to his feet and said: : Broad Sentiment*. "I move that the broad democratic sentiments expressed this day Pat Neff and T. W. Davidson' be by weakest point in the present school ' TM J " nomlnati °n by the republicans of system, since no desire for knowl- l hc stato to the Position of United edge is engendered. Contention was made by the speaker that if boys and girls were given something to do and then had to work out the objects laid down, there would be an interest in education like there is in the reading of a continued story.

Please be assured of my deep appreciation of the very great honor you would confer upon me. At the same time, however, I am sure you wilt recall the statement made by me at our several meetings to the effect that no man should accept such an important office, and one that carries with it the responsibility as in the case of a United States senator, unless he has the time and the opportunity to make a vigorous and statewide campaign. There could be no question of a division of time between business and politics. With this before me and the weight of my responsibilities both in and out of the Austin National Bank.

STEM ROLLER IS Hall in Uproar and Chairman Uses Tenpin Valiantly as a Gavel. BY TED DEALEY, Staff Correspondent of The JICITB. Beethoven Hall, San Antonio. Tex.. Sept. 6.--In an uproarious session in. this city this afternoon the delegates to the state democratic convention by a vote oC 691 y to 135^ shut of! all debate on the Ku Klux Klan issue -which had come before the convention on a minority report This record vote came after steamroller methods had been in operation all afternoon in the convention hall. Following- f the decisive defeat of the minority report the dele/rates by- viva voce vote rousingrly adopted the majority report as submitted by Chairman Satterwhite of the platform and resolutions committee. The majority report of the committee, therefore, went officially on record as the platform of the state democratic convention of 1922. The absolute shutting off of all debate on the minority report, or the Teagarden resolution, had been unexpected.. Judge Barry "Miller of Dallas arrived in San Antonio last night with, credentials from Delta County for-the-sole.purpose of making a fight for the Teagarden rear olution on the floor of .the convention. Iast night and this morning it was generally believed that Judge Miller would be seated and that he would be given at least half an hour or so to state the side of the anti- klan minority in the convention, Miller Dcsiicd Proxy. But at the crucial moment the privilege ot taking a delegate's seat in the convention was denied Judge Miller. Following the submission and the reading of the minority report by State Senator T. J^ Holbrook of Galveston, John M. Mathis of Houston jumped to his feet and moved the tabling of the report. Judge Miller himself then sprang to his feet and -was recognized by the chair. Before he had had op- Statess enate. Dr. E. P. Wilmot of | (Continued on Page 2, Column 4.) Austin has declined to run for the ' senate on the republican ticket and with republican leaders -was at San Antonio. Republican Chairman Creager said the democratic party should declare itself as the klan- ocratic party. Fred C. Pabst cast Galveston's twelve votes for the platform despite protest of Charles J. Stubbs. Pabst said the Gaiveston delegation had been practically unanimous against the anti-klan resolution. Joe Burkett's effort to bring in his minority report on the klan was fruitless, for he -was ruled out on a point of order. Barry Miller's proxy came too late and he was denied the privileges of the floor. OIL MEN OPTIMISTIC OVER NEW HUMBLE WELL IN ORANGE FIELD.
