PASO wife home the had six his in El a regret New Federal Judge To Be Named in As a result of the passage of the bill authorizing the appointment of more federal judges, New Mexico be given one of the new judges. Senator A. A. Jones succeeded in having an amendment to the bill passed, authorizing the holding of federal court sessions in any incorporated municipality municipality in the state. Senator Bursum's amendment asking for a judge for New Mexico was lost by a tie vote 32 to 32, but Senator Dial of South Carolina changsd his vote and the amendment was reconsidered, the vote resulting in the appointment of a federal judge for this state. There are already signs of keen rivalry for the appointment, among the names mentioned being those of David Leahy and Marcus B. Thompson Thompson of Las Cruces, but expert political political dopesters favor the belief that Ihe plum is most likely to go to Governor Mechem at the conclusion of term in office.
