To have made a drastic ansvrer would have Ueen to give dc Valera a strong battle-cry with which to call a general election, nut Thomas hedged the Issue, by solemnly stating that he could not -and would not give a categorical answer to a hypothetical; question. Tnere, for the mOmenti' v the matter rests. / If all the eiripire liad been sought over it is probable, that no two more striking opponents could have been found than' de Valera and Thomas. The only two things they have in common are that both were poor boys and both call themselves Celts. De Vatera was born in New York City 51 years ago, his mcther beint Irish and his father Spanish. The latter had been a sculptor of some note ami then, when r.is eyes.fail- ed, supported his family by.teach- ing music. Art and the higher tilings of life were thus in the vcrv 'atmosphere the little h'simcii breathed i,, i,i s early years. Thomas was torn sa years aw in Wnlc-i of working class parents. There was no time for art. The wolf was too often at the door TOOK SEPARATE PATHS When his father died, do Valem went to Ireland to b? educated, walking miles to his first school Thomas left school at the aje of nine to get his first job aa an engine-wiper in a railway roundhouse. De Vnlera worked in Dublin as a teacher, while lie took his degree at tlie National University. Thcnias climbed Ihe ladder and became an expert railway engine driver. De Valera continued teaching, his specially being mathematics. Thomris became' Genera! Sec- rctiiry of the National union ol |, lialhvayincn. one of the strongest labor crgaiihuiloivs in Great Erit- nln. \ Both men went into politics. ' D" Valera threw himself Into'the Irish rebellion, was a commandant In the Easier rising of 1916 . in fiublln nnd sentenced lo death. Reprieved under an amnesty, he was once more arrested, only to escap-" through a daring plot. As a prominent trades union!-;' Thomas naturally drifted inlo |wl- Hics and became Socialist member of Parliament for the seat of Derby in 1910. De Valera became a Sinn Pern member of Parliament for the | constituency of Bast Clare in 1!M7 ROSE HIGH POUTICAIXV Thomas became a member of the cabinet in the two So:iallst governments headed by Raimjy MacDonald as Premier, be Valera became President of the Sinn Fein movement and then President of the Free Stale In 1919-22. When the second Socialist cabinet fell In 1931, Tr.omas was one of the few outstanding Labor leaders who fol- , loaed MacDonnld In the formation i of the National government, com- pcsert or Tories. Liberals and Socialists. He became Secretary for the Dominions In the new cabinn! and. despite socialist opposition, i was re-elected by Derby wilh a' huge majority. De Valera led the opposition to the Cosgrnvc government of the Free stale for len ler a renewal of the government's campaign against rum smugglers on the' Texas-Mexican border. Four suspected" smugglers, two of them wounded, were undar arrest. Twenty gallon o! contraband whisky were in the hands of officers. The dead patrolman was Bert Walthajl. 3-1, formerly o f Plagsiafl, Ariz. The body of Joe Estrada was to the Hoosevclt Hyde Park farm. Mc-ggie, a Scotch terrier, nipped Bess Rinnan, newspajwr woman.
