'TF euh of more value interesting booklet rce "c!'t!?,dadrirc"on P0" "rd to SAN ANTONIO, Tex., June J. (By A. . P.) Maury Maverick stepped in as leader of San Antonio's stormy city government today, denying he was using the mayor's office for toehold on a climb back to Washington, but he took time out to discuss 1940 presidential possibilities. Maverick unseated C. K. Quin who led the campaign that gave Paul J. Kilday victory over him in the last congressional election. I haven't any intention of running for anything," the new chief executive laid. "I'm going to work to be the best mayor in the United States and I'm going to be active in state ana local politics." On the subject of Vice President Garner's presidential possibilities ne Doomed: "In times of distress people develop a grandfather's complex. In 1857 they elected Buchanan, who was 65 years old, because he was a man non-committal on the subject of slavery. He was elected as a Northern Democrat from Pennsylvania and the Southern Democrats supported him. The same thing is happening today. They want to put up a conservatice Southern Democrat with h Vinnoc of getting the conservative vote of me norm, it would result in the same distress. "I don't mean ther uIU V civil war, but it would result in chaos anct coniusion to elect a man who has taken no stand, No president has ever been elected in his seventies," The announcement of Senator Arthur Vandenberg (R., Mich.) that he would run for reelection if not pressed into the presidential campaign brought from Maverick: "We could beat Vandenberg easier than anyone else I know." Maverick already has stuck his finger into state polities. He went to Austin to fiffht i San a tonio civil service bill he didn't like and stirred up a brief word war with a hometown legislator. Pat Dwyer derided Maverick for getting into the mayor's office with less than a majority (there were six candidates) and said Maverick didn't represent the whole city by a long shot. the mildest portion of Maury's rejoinder was: "I haven't anything to say except that I got elected by a big plurality and Mr. Dwyer represents nobody but the race horse interests . . The chances are that even in the hot summer just ahead things will be popping politically in old San Antonio. . Advertising is "the salt of the earth in business. Will King, Greet All Members of U. S. Congress? WASHINGTON, June l.(By A. P.) Freshmen Congressmen were worrying over a mathematical problem today will the King and Queen of England havetime to greet all the 531 members of Congress in the 45 minutes they will spend at the capitol? If their majesties, following a rigid time schedule, have to leave before all the Senators and Representatives Brc ni-PsentoH 4 them, it will be the new members, last ' in line, who may miss out on the greeting. Senator Pittman (D-Nev) said the arrangements committee had been so disturbed by this possi bility that it had decided not to permit former Senators and former Congressmen to join in the line. Just how fast the King (md Queen can greet the lawmakers is the puzzler. If they offer their hands, it probably will take longer than if the Senators and Representatives merely bow on presentation. White House attaches;, who are good at that sort of thing, estimate that the President and Mrs. Roosevelt dispose nf about J5 handshakers a minute at their receptions, Jf the royal visitors greet 12 a minute, everything will be fine. During the World war the average number of letters censored in a day by the British was 375,517. Ride a bus to Dodson 917 German Jews Denied Entrance to Cuba HAVANA, Cuba, June I. (By A. P.) Police in launches and aboard the German liner Saint Luis kept close guard today at the request of the captain who feared a series of suicide attempts among 917 German Jewish passengers denied entrance to Cuba. The passenger refugees were to start back to Germany this afternoon, unless a last minute decision permitted their immigration here. The ship's representative was instructed to deliver a memorandum signed by women and chil- 1939 dren aboard the Saint Luis to the wife of President Federico Laredo Bru, requesting her aid in seeking permission for all to land. One refugee slashed his wrists and jumped overboard Tuesday. He was rescued, but Captain Gus-tav Schrocder informed authorities -he feared a "collective suicide pact" was being considered and declared that a "state of mutiny" might result if he were forced to take the Jews back to Germany, They were refused permission to land when they could not show Cuban consular visas, passports arid Cuban labor department permits. They carried only provisional permits of the immigration department to land as travelers enroute to the United States where they hoped to gain admission later.

I was only half as drunk cs I was last week when yon only lined me $6." "The fine stands. A man good and drunk if often less a nuisance to society than a man half drunk." .
