Several newcomers to the Harvester team are expected to come to the fi-'int with a little more training and Coach Mitchell had intended working on some new dash material this week.

ERICKSON GIVEN OATH WASHINGTON, March 20. Ignoring a protest that his appointment involved a political trade, the senate today administered the oath to former Governor John E. Erickson to succeed the late Senator Thomas J.

Walsh of Montana. ERICKSON DEPENDED WASHINGTON, March 20. Senator Burton K. Wheeler today told the senate that Federal Judge George M. Bourquin of Helena and Butte had opposed the seating ofl Senator John E.

Light snowfall was reported.from the east side, imals. The bill was opposed by Representative J. H.

Fisher of Newcastle, a minister, who scoffed at the idea that it was sponsored to aid agricultural interests by increasing the quality of horses and. mules. "It would be legislative encouragement of gambling," Rev. Fisher said. "We might just as well turn loose all other forms." Duvall said that betting on horse races was no worse than gambling on cotton futures on the stock market and challenged statements that it would prove detrimental to the public morals.

The house recessed at noon without having taken a vote on the bill or any of the amendments. Ray Charged the bill was "in- iquitious" said he would rather see the schools close than derive a portion of their revenue from "gambling dens." The bill would apportion part of the taxes levied on racing meets to the schools.

Then he repeated, "No pictures, capitalists! all capitalists, lousy Attendants started to complete preparations for the electrocution and Zangara said evenly, "Goodbye. Adios to all the world. Goodbye." With his feet not quite touching the floor and his head completely covered, he then leaned back in the chair and relaxed to await the shocks. One of the guards who fixed the elecjbrokie stepped 'back and said in a quiet voice, "all right, Joe." With that signal, Sheriff Dan Hardie of Dade county (Miami) walked behind the chair and threw the switch that sent 2,300 volts thru Zangara's body at 9:15. The little assassin's body stiffened at the first shock and his head gave a jerk upward.

Brain Declared Normal. His hands clenched the chair. The current was turned off after three minutes and Zangara's body relaxed, slumping forward. Guards hastily released the straps about his arms and physicians stepped forward to make their examination. Ke was officially pronounced dead at 9:27 a.

eastern standard time. An autopsy was ordered immediately after the electrocution. The physicians tvfho iperformed 1 the autopsy announced they found the assassin's brain "perfectly normal" on gross examination. There was no immediate announcement as to what would be done 'with Zangara's body. Several medical schools and clinics had asked that the body be given to them for scientific research but Governor Dave Sholtz did not say what would be done about these requests.

Zangara had no known relatives in the United States. He said his father lived near the town of Per- uzzano, Calabria, Italy. He gave his age as in the early thirties. He was a naturalized citizen of the United States. EXHIBITION BASEBALL By The Associated Press.

Disappearing, tricks were featured Sunday in such profusion that many in the audience wished he would' slow up to give them time to think. He again used his magic bottle, from which he pours hard and soft drinks to taste on demand.

Yesterday he added the producing ol ribbons of any desired color from this bottle, 'in addition to pouring of the drinks. He continued the daily levitation demonstration raising his "leading laity" into the air without any visible means. This stunt is as puzzling as it was on the first night. The most astounding performance Sunday was not by the Wizard, however, but by his young lady assistant. After three local men.

had tied and nailed her to an upright board, she was placed, in a tent-like arrangement. Then she proceeded to show her hands, throw out pots and pans, and even to draw on a coat borrowed from one of, the men. The tent was removed, and there she sat still tied and nailed to the board. The trick was repeated, then Willard did a disappearing act in which he changed costumes, invisibly, without leaving the stage. On tonight and tomorrow he will show some of the hardest stunts he knows, reserved for his closing performances.

Bill To License Car Drivers Is Passed By House AUSTIN, Mar. 20. The Texas senate recently passed a bill by Senator W. Poage of Waco to provide for the licensing of all automobile drivers. All except two of the senators present voted for the bill.

It was approved after only a few minutes of discussion. The bill originally provided that no person under 15 years of age could be a licensed motorist. An amendment was adopted to lower the minimum age limit to 1(2 years. The licenses would not cost anything. They could be suspended or revoked for driving while' drunk, reckless driving, negligent homicide and similar offenses.

The senate committee on constitutional amendments reported favorably on a house resolution to restrict the legislative representation from the large cities. The vote in committee was 4 to 3. For Rent FOB model Ford truck, caliche bed. Trailer with gallon tank. Trade for light car.
