(AP) Under new and younger leader . ship, the Republicans began the groundwork today for a two-fisted, no-quarter campaign to ' displace the New Deal. While Governor Alt M. Landon and Col. Frank Knox prepared to discuss tactics Tuesday in Topeka, the field staff of the party carried back to the rank and file in all states the militant message of its unanimous convention. Some hazards to harmony began to arise with dissatisfaction among certain western independents as they reflected over the platform. Senator William E. Borah, who had pretty much his way in' the , policy declarations only to have Landon later proclaim some per-- sonal planks including monetary views opposed by the Idahoan, withheld any pledge of suppdrt. Senator Nye (R.-N."

He' had already been given up by many Republican leaders after his sup port of Roosevelt in 1932. Flood of Praise.

(AP) President Roosevelt turned eastward on his 4,000-mile west era trip today after stating his views on some of the live national and international questions of , the day .before centennial-celebrating Texas and Arkansas. He planned to leave today for Vincennes, Ind., where tomorrow morning he will deliver the third major address of his tour to dedi eating a monument to George Rogers Clark, northwest Revolt tionary War hero. He spent the night here at the nearby home of his son, Elliott. In two speeches at the Texas centennial at Dallas yesterday, the chief executive again talked freely about current problems. After a hard-hitting anti-monop oly speech in the Dallas cotton bowl stadium, where' his visible audience was estimated at 50,000 he told a downtown hotel luncheon in his honor that foreign nations that "think of armament and war' could expect nothing but "moral help" from the United States in settling their difficulties. "We are not going to get tan gled up in their troubles in the days to come," he said. Previously, in the stadium, he called for "democracy in oppor tunity" as well as in government in stating "chiselers" in business must go. The very nature of free govern ment, he said, demanded that there "must be a line of defense held by the yeomanry of business and industry and agriculture," not the "generalissimos." Mrs. Roosevelt, dressed in white with a red, white and blue scarf around her neck, shared the. ova tions the president received in Dallas. 23 884 4 14 19 68 244 68 97 144 20 PHILLIPS TAKES OATH OF OFFICE Sworn in as U. S. District Attorney by Judge Akerman Here Herbert S. Phillips, 61-year-old Tampa attorney, was inducted into office as U. S. District Attorney for the Southern District of Florida for the third time of his career at ceremonies in Federals Court here this morning. The oath of office was administered by Judge Akerman, senior Federal jurist for the Florida circuit. Mr. Phillips repeated the oath of office before more than a hundred members of the Hillsborough County and Tampa Bar Associa tions. He promised that "absolute fairness" would be the motto of the district attorney's office during his administration. Following the court room cere monies, Mr. Phillips, when questioned regarding location of the district's central office, indicated that an effort will be made to transfer the office from Jacksonville, present headquarters for the Southern District attorney, .to Tampa. Cody Fowler, president of the Hillsborough County Bar Associa tion, and B. L, Cooper, president of the Tampa Bar Association, congratulated Mr. Phillips on his appointment and assured him that attorneys throughout the Southern District were unanimous in ap proving his appointment. Martin Caraballo also spoke of his long friendship with Mr. Phillips. "I think we are exceedingly for tunate in having Mr. Phillips as our prosecuting officer," Judge Akerman said in Atlanta, June 13. (AP) Storms which swept the southeast yesterday lopped another huge see tor from drouth territory, but mar red this beneficial work with nine lightning deaths. North-Central North Carolina, Northwestern South Carolina and extreme Northwestern Georgia reported rains heavy enough to arrest crop damage. Relief afforded other sectors of the ever-narrowing drouth area was spotty in nature, but served to keep loss estimates from being revised upward from a ' roughly figured toll of $135,000,000 Florida out of the drouth do main suffered most from elec. tricity. Near Cross City four men were killed and four others in jured when lightning struck a truck in which they were riding, , Other Deaths. At Anniston, Ala., two young men were killed while crossing a field after a swimming party. ' Near Fort Payne a CCC worker was killed when a bolt ripped through a shed. A young mother standing on the porch of her home at Monroe, N. C, was instantly killed, but a small son with her escaped serious injury. N A Negro met death while at work in a field close to Charlotte. Forecasts today were for more showers to revive cotton, corn and tobacco fields. A slow advance of cotton prices toward the' 11-cent level was credited to the drouth. The affected area normally .produces some 3,000,000 to 6,000,000 bales, or about one-third of the crop. Observers could not agree on the extent of the damage done by dry and hot weather but trad ers generally were bullish. Want and Plenty. The situation carried possibility of a paradox of want and plenty in the cotton belt. While the southeastern fields' withered ' and sent prices up, generally adequate rains promised good crops in the western area. Roughly speaking, the drouth area which once extended from Arkansas to Maryland was nar rowed down to a fraction of its former extent. Only sections of North Georgia, some of northern Alabama, middle Tennessee and strips of the Caro Unas still suffered generally se nous conaiuons, aitnougn many patches of the original dry belt remained arid due to the erratic course of the rains of the past week. some or tne points receiving heavy rams yesterday were: Ral eigh, N.

(AP) addressing the' Tne Sterne court declared today riuiiua uiLiea uttlliiui legally DOr- row money from the Federal government to finance public improve ments without first obtaining ap proval of freeholders if there is any possibility that taxes may have to be levied to meet the obliga tions. The decisions were handed down in cases directly affecting PWA loans for a sewer system at Lake land and a gas plant at Sebring, but indirectly affecting public projects in many Florida cities for which a total of $111,345,067 in Federal funds is sought. At this same time the court ruled that the State Tuberculosis Board may obtain a $225,000 PWA loan to erect a sanatorium near Orlando, because only revenue from the sanatorium will be used to repay the debt, and there will be question . of the public being Jacksonville, June 13. (AP) Southeast storm warnings remained up in the' Key West area today as weather bureau meteorologists 5 AM charted the course of a tropical dis turbance near the Yucatan, Mexico, coast. The storm, described as of slight taxed to meet the obligation, intensity, was moving northwestward, a course which would carry it away from Florida and into Mex ico if continued. The weather in Florida was some what affected, the weather bureau said. Today's general forecast for the peninsula was "cloudy with oc casional scattered showers tonight ana Sunday."

ORDERS PROBE OF 50 DEATHS Victims Believed Killed by Insurance Racketeers in Massachusetts .-.Springfield, Mass., June 13. (AP) A trial justice urged an investigation today of nearly 50 "suspicious" deaths in three thickly-populated, mill-town communities near here. While state officials scanned insurance records of three recent victims of poison, trial Justice George B. Haas of Ludlow called for a "thorough investigation not only of these present cases, but those over a course of years." There have been between 35 and 50 suspicious deaths in Ludlow, Chicopee and the Indian Orchard section of Springfield," de clared Judge Haas. "By suspicious," he continued, I mean many of them were in sured . by outsiders for amounts they, themselves, would have been unable to carry." "Insurance Racket." Meanwhile, District Attorney Thomas F. Moriarty, directing the investigation of what Judge Haas termed an "insurance racket," sought to determine whether' the three most recent victims had been slain. i Frank Halgas, 60, of Ludlow, was found April 4, lying in the street, apparently killed by a, hit-and-run driver. Frank Kroll, also of Ludlow, tumbled down a flight of staise to his death at his boarding house May 25. Jacob Znoj, 40, of nearby Chico pee, died April 22, apparently of a heart attack. Poison-Found in Bodies. But police officials erased an early report of accidental deaths when routine autopsies revealed poison. i - The pathological examination. declared the district attorney, ' re vealed enough of the same poison in each of the three men's bodies to cause death." Judge Haas, who presided at the inquest into Halgas' death, report ed to Superior Court, that the death was a "murderous act which cannot be mitigated by the circum stances of the victim's death." which will draw Mr. Eipley's attention. "Topsy" draws no line in mother ing the kittens and the adopted rat. The kittens and rat lunch together and play together as if they were real brothers and sis ters. Mrs. Bostick says that "Top sy" probably gives more care to the rat than to her kittens. "The kittens were born 10 days ago," Mrs. Bostick said todsCy. "At the same time a litter of rats was born., "Topsy, found the rat nest three days " later and brought the baby rat back to her own corner of the garage. "When I first saw the rat with the kittens, I thought it wouldn't be long, but day after day as I have gone to the garage to see about the kittens, I found the rat there. It's the first time I ever heard of a cat adopting a rat for a long period., Come out to the garage and s"ee it for yourself." An inquiring reported and photographer, with tips from the fe line, world, were the visitors. They went to the garage and in the corner was white "Topsy," the six kittens and the rat Ths result was the remarkable picture above which shows the rat, perched upon "Topsy's"side near her adopted playmates, being close- j ly observed by its foster mother. The experiment of the cat mo thering the rat will continue to draw the attention of the neigh bornood.. None will predict the final result.

Chil- lingworth today ordered the filing of disbarment procedings against A. L. Rankin and Walter S. Richardson, two attorneys who figured in the Whitehall Hotel foreclosure suit in Federal court in 1929-30. The Whitehall case played a prominent part in the impeachment trial of Rankin's former law partner. Halsted L. Ritter, removed by the U. S. Senate as Federal judge.' State attorney Jack W. Salisbury was directed by the court to file the steps to disbar the two attorneys, while the same order exoner ated a third attorney, Ernest Met-calf, -who did legal work in the Whitehall case, the court finding that Metcalf's work "was accompanied with no unlawful, dishon orable or corrupt motive." In the case of Rankin and Rich ardson, however, Judge Chilling-worth found that "with a corrupt motive, they stirred up, conceived. planned, fomented, maintained and unduly prolonged the law suit com monly known, as the Whitehall suit for the primary purpose of personal enrichment of themselves and the managers of the hotel . . with only the incidental and sec ondary consideration of protectlne tne interest of the first mortgage Donanoiders." The order today followed an in vestigation' during. April and Mayt in which Judge Chillingworth was assisted by members of the bar. Rankin and Metcalf appeared at the hearings and made statements in their own defense, while Rich-ardsqji, who is now in Washington, D. C. sent affidavits. - Stock Prices Move .
