(JP) The wnate campaign investigating com' mittee censured today as "unfortunate" a speech made yesterday hv Aubrev Williams, deputy wrA administrator, to the Workers Alli ance. The committee votea to accept, however, a statement Dy Williams that no political implications were intended in his remarKs to tne or canization of WPA workers. Chairman Sheppard (D-Tex) of the senate committee told news- mDrmen he would ask the Alii ance for the stenographic transcript of Williams' aaaress. Transcript Distributed Newspapermen informed him that the Alliance had distributed what purported to be a transcript of the talk in which Williams advised the workers to keep their "friends" in power. In a letter to Sheppard, made public by the committee, Williams summarized his talk and said he was unable to send the transcript because his remarks were made extemporaneously. What I said and what I am reported as saying are entirely two different things," Williams informed the committee in response to its request for information about his talk. Newspapermen attending the meeting of the Alliance reported JrVilliams told the workers: "Keep your friends in power. Judge those friends by the crowd they run with when they come to you and ask for support." The campaign committee, after a Special meeting called to consider Williams' letter of reply said it felt that "because of his position in the works progress administration the speech of Mr, Williams was unfortunate." It added that it hoped "all dispensers of federal funds will take note of the obligation which has 3een imposed on this committee, by he senate, to report to the senate ill such incidents as may be deemed come within the scope of the investigation." The statement asserted that "the committee accepts this (Williams') itatement." To Compare Reports Sheppard said, however, that if a ranfeript of the speech was ob-ainable from the Alliance, he would ompare it with Williams' own sum- Gamblers Score Tax Collectors; One Sided Case Levy on Gains Made in Opera tions But Losses Are Not Given Credit for Washington, June 28. WV-Two Corpus Christi, Tex., gamblers complained today that the government's tax collectors are running a "heads I win, tails you lose" game. Clyde E. Jennings and L. K. Mason appealed to the board of tax appeals, saying the internal revenue bureau wanted to tax their gambling winnings but refused to permit deductions for gambling losses. Mason said that in 1936 he received $32,979 from partnerships in gambling enterprises, but was refused an offset for $14,010 that he lost in personal gambling. Jennings received $16,295 from partnership gambling gains and sought a credit for $2,512 personal gambling losses. The government is trying to collect $3,013 additional taxes from Mason and $347 from Jennings. The law says generally that gambling losses may be deducted up to the amount of gambling gains. In these cases, however, the internal revenue bureau ruled that since the losses were personal and the gains were partnerships they could not be offset.

Gibraltar Threatened Today in the British house of com mons the Duchess of Atholl gave what she said was details of Spanish insurgent guns "threatening Gibraltar" and said she would ask Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain tomorrow what he plans to do about them. Chamberlain already was faced by mounting indignation over continued bombings of British merchant ships in Spanish ports. Some quarters believed he would receive new demands to allow the ships to arm for defense. Adding to British uneasiness was a report from Rome that Premier Mussolini had held a conference with two of his foremost fighting men Marsnai rietro uadagio, cruel of general staff, and General Alberto Pariani, undersecretary for war. The purpose was not disclosed.

PROMINENT CHINESE VICTIM OF ILLNESS Shanghai, June 28 (JPhlS Ching' Mai, youngest son of the late Li Hung-Chang, died of a heart attack today at the age of 3.

Li Hung-Chang probably was the most famous Chinese of the later nineteenth century, practically dic tating tne loreicn policy of the country under the empress dowager. Remember 'Way Back When Men looked like they were poured into their trousers and button shoes were all the rage. Old Dobbin was actually a means of transportation and not just an exercise or sport. Ladies' hats resembled a cross between a flower or vegetable garden and a bird's nest. Lillian Russell was the toast of the American stage, and the Floradora girls were the popular sextette.

Divided into three sections cover ing state, national and general issues, the document contains a wordy preamble which condemns tne new deal as "reactionary, op pressive and detrimental" to the best interests of the country. "In this (1938) election the American citizen must choose between candidates of the new deal with its record of wastes, ineptitude and callous disregard for sacred principles and institutions, and candidates of the republican party which proposes a constitutional and constructional approach to the nation's problems by reopening the gates of opportunity for men, land and money and by practice of the simple virtue of thrift," the preamble declared. Platform Adopted The platform, which occupied the attention of official and unofficial committees and major office candidates the past two davs nnrl nights, was adopted plank by plank by convention delegates. It was rewritten several times before it was submitted for final consideration by Boyd Leedom of Rapid City, platform committee chairman.

The platform nronospri snip of ru ral credit land at reasonable prices and terms as fast as sound hnsin practice permits and promised legislation and administration to "correct the evils which exist" in operation of the state's penal and charitable institutions.

P) Delegates to the republican state convention here yesterday unanimously adopted a resolution expressing the party's sympathy and regret over the death 18 months ago of Senator Peter Norbeck. The convention was the party's first official assembly since the senator's death. "In the death of Senator Norbeck the nation lost a wise statesman. agriculture a faithful friend, and the people of the 3tate a loyal and devoted leader," the resolution said. "May the Custer State park, which he conceived and to which he devoted such unselfish efforts, and tr Mount Rushmore memorial. which he made a reality, be perpet ual reminders to the people of this state oi nis services to them." The convention adopted several other resolutions, one of which suggested that the legislature give serious consideration to the advisability of a constitutional amendment which would provide four-year terms for elective state and countv offi cials.
