Townsend Plan Dead In House Landslide WASHINGTON, June 1 (U.B_ The House today In a record roll call vote defeated by a large majority the.Townsend plan ment of $200 monthly pensions to the aged. The vote was announced as 302 to 87, with two of ttie members present not voting. House members went on record on the controversial plan which has stirred political activity in states from Maine to California as Dr. Francis E. gray- haired leader of. the pension movement watched proceedings from the House members' gallery. The House undertook the record Tote after refusing to recommit the measure to the House ways and means committee for reconsideration. The House roll call ws frankly undertaken by opponents "of 'the. Townsend movement to embarrass congressmen who accepted Townsend aid and Townsend votes in their Election campaigns, many of them in belief that the measure would not be brought before Congress for action. Many members complained that their colleagues were trying to "put them on the Sponsors of the Townsend movement, including Kcp. Joe Hendricks. who introduced the complex measure in the House, admitted that tlie bill was doomed to deffnt even before foul debate and voting commenced. The and means committee brought the bill to the House floor by reporting it without recommendation. Hendricks described the measure, which included a complicated transaction tax to provide funds to pay the pensions, as repre- fenUng "Townsend's exact wishes." I He to members a letter by Townsend warning that a vote to the measure was a vote Bgainst Uie plan. The letter was Erected by an outburst of boos from The. motion to recommit the bill a made by Rep. Allen Treadway, ranking Republican mem- ter nf the ways and menns committee. He n.ked a his committee be instructed to reconsider the bill grounds. and report a measure "in its. judgment constitutional" and providing "a just and equitable-pension, on a pay-e basis." Speaker William B. Baakhead declared the motion lost on a voice vote Chairman Robert Doughton, N. ways and means committee immediately called for the record-vote on the bill itself. Townsend was noncommittal on the defeat, saying: "I didn't expect to win No Damage Reported as Tremor; Jar Tulia Buildings TULSA. June I'm--Several eastern Oklahoma cities felt earth tremors strong enough to.jar buildings early today but no damage was reported. Scores of Tulsans were awakened shortly before 3 A.

A shock in Okmulgee. of sufficient intensity to rattle windows, was reported to have lasted ten minutes. Muskogee and Holdenville also felt quake.

Well Spacing Discussed by Oilmen Here Well spacing In Ihe Panhandle oil lltlu has discussed all its phases at a meeting last night of representative I operators in the field and of major companies. The meeting was held at the Herring Hold. The relative values to the field and to the operators of 10 acre and 30 acre spacing received arguments pro and con. The major companies are championing a movement to change the present plan of 10 ac spacing to 20 acre spacing. Th independents, members of the Pan handle Producers and Royalty Own ers Association, were opposed to th 20 acre plan preferring to let th field remain under the 10 plnn, which has been in vogue sine the field was discovered. Don Knowlton of the Phillips Petroleum Company a tin spokesman for the major com panics and according to E. A King, represented every major company in the field and a lei of the larger independents. Mr. Knowlton presented the 2 acre case stressing the econom: necessity of larger spacing at th time. His statements were basec on the brown dolomite area of th field. He maintained the pla would cut the final cost of development for the remainder of the fiel 50 per cent which under the strcsse times In the Industry was the onl sane thing to do. According to Mr Knowlton. under the 20 acre pla about 650 more wells would com pletely drill up the now know brown dolomite area while uncle the present plan of 10 acres to th well it would take about 1,600 well representing a saving of severa million dollars to the producer ir drilling under the larger spacin plan. Mr. Knowlton also believed th Texas railroad commission wouli permit a greater allocation of oi daily to the field if the 20 plan were adopted which in terms of barrels would amount to ap proximately 4 barrels per well in crease on 20 acres, This extra ol the Phillips Company would agree to take, said Knowlton. The Independent association had appointed a special committee to discuss the plan and this committee yesterday afternoon. In ansjfcer. to, Knowlton andr eral oilier speakers who were presenting the 20-acre plan, E. J. Dunigan, as chairman of the inde- lendent's committee, stated that after discussing the question from all angles the committee had def- nltely turned the proposition of 20 spacing down and if necessary would defend its action before the 'allroad commission. The reasons given for the committee decision were definite. In- Juried were, the fact that the field lad been developed so far under he 10 acre plan, and any change low to the larger plan would penalize the part of the Held already leveloped by virtue of larger allow- bles to wells on the 20-acre plan. The fact that the field royalty wners were not in accord with the arger plan and that a percentage the association membership was and and royalty owners. That ac- ording to opinions of several ge- loglsts familiar with conditions in lie Panhandle field complete drain- of the field would not be possi- le under the 20-acre plan; this omplaint coming from the royalty wners as well as the operators. That the so-called premium of four arrels additional to a well drilled 20 acres would increase the drlll- of wells instead of decrease It. The committee had recognized 'he economic advantages of the wider spacing of wells but under existing conditions in the Panhandle field felt the faulty factors of the plan outweighed the rood ones.

Debts may be outlawed by time and tenet, but the statute of limitations never runs out on the conscience and so Mrs. Wells has $20 chock in payment of a smal! loan, $5, about which she knew nothing. Not long ago Mrs. Wells, widow of Aif Wells, who died here four years ago. received a postal card from McAllen. "I can make it beneficial to you If you will send your correct address to me here at McAllen," read the card, delivered by the post office through directory service. Mrs. wells sent her address and then came a letter with the check. "I am undertaking quite a difficult proposition," read the letter. "My husband is quite feeble. He Is not able to write. He has been thinking about $5 he borrowed from your father many years ago to buy groceries for his mother. I myself have no recollection of the transaction. I can't even remember you. He has had the money and could have paid It years ago if he had only known where you were. He said your father lost $5 at the time and as a result thought my husband had borrowed $10. They didn't quite get it settled just then and my husband said they never would know just the straight of It as circumstances were such et that time they could not, but he wants to send you a check of $20 whkh you can dispose of as you see fit. and yours."

How the debtor down at McAllen learned Mrs. Wells lived in Amarillo and I went there last year on a visit," related Mrs. Wells. "While there I saw the brother-in-law of the man who sent the money. The brother-in-law wrote to McAllen tell the men I lived In Amarillo." "Of course, I didn't know anything about the deal, which must have been made fully 60 years ago, and things like this help you keep faith In the honesty of humanity," added Mrs. Wells.

The vacation was expected to encourage search for private employment. This coincided with a brusque and convincing assertion by Vice President John N. Garner that Congress would not adjourn before enacting legislation to keep politics out of relief. Members of a House appropriations subcommittee have decided tentatively to recommend changes in WPA. reduction of Its scope and a shift from what they described as the "strictly social welfare" philosophy of relief administration. A committee member, explaining that the program was subject to revision, outlined proposed leglsla- -lon as follows: 1. Require all persons who have been on relief rolls 15 months to So off for 60 days to seek private employment, 2. Develop a system of "security wages" to supplant the "prevailing wages" under which WPA now pays for work on a scale equal to that prevailing In private employment in any locality. 3. Substitute for the existing one-man administration of WPA a three-man board to be named by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The board probably would Include representatives of business, labor-and'the-public. 4. Limit the cost of Individual WPA projects to $25,000. 5.
