Plans had been made originally lo dismiss the entire student body that early lor a track and field meet: Later it-was decided to release only the participants early. They were among the: few survivors.- . Â· J. Mahaffey of Selma City, said "I heard the rumble" of the blast while he was 12 miles away. ' "When I got here more than 40 bodies-had been laid to. one side," he related. . . ; "One body had been blown ihrough .the roof and was lodged on top oÂ£ the section of the building left standing."

"This is the worst I have ever lindwn," said Joe Davidson, 54 yeai old World war aviator 'who twice experienced having a plane shot from under him. Three of his 'lour children perished. "Kids were blown out.through the top onto the roof," said 18. year old Martha Harris:who witnessed the explosion from the -Home Economy building 60 yards away.-:- - : ,.. . . !

American Legion officials at .Overtoil said several sticks of dynamite, used for blasting a football field, were found in the wreckage but hacl'.no connection with .the explosion. The sticks were in a part of the school not badly damaged.. Â· Flames From Pipes. ; As flames from gas pipes, leap- ing.30 feet into the air, lighted the scene, screaming cranes lifted huge chunks of concrete and acetylene torches bit into twisted steel to release the crushed victims. .

The scene is a campus nine iriiles northwest of Henderson on which seven producing oil. wells are remindful of the source of wealth. ; Â· . AH of a Sudden.' "My brother said the place just blew up all of a sudden and scared them awfully," - w a s ' the simple picture presented by little Martha Harris. "It took his breath away and all he knew was he had Â· to jump somewhere, any where.". He leaped to safety. "It was nearly seven minutes before lime for dismissal," said L. 2. Barker, 16,' who was 'Â· in the study hall. Â· . Â· Â· , . . Â· . "Suddenly the. floor rose iip. There was a terrible blast. It sounded like, dynamite.-I was not badly hurt. I was hit on the back of the head by something. I jumped out the second floor window." .: Wildest disorder followed. As the reports spread roads became clogged with screaming parents racing to the school in automobiles. Calls Sent Out. Calls were sent out for all available nurses and physicians. Some came by plane from Wichita Falls. The Eed Cross at. Shreveport La., and Little Rock, Ark., went into action. 'Oil field workers in the east Texas fields, known as one of the wealthiest in the world, dropped their tools and strained their muscles to the task of rescue work. By nightfall bodies were being removed at the rate of about one every five minutes. Automobile traffic was halted mile and a half away. Mother Holds Child. A, pitifully silent mother held s child in her arms. He was pull-id fiom the wreckage minutes earlier.

TEACHERS HEAR BISHOP OXNAM Advised Not to Sacrifice Political Liberty for Economic Justice. "I refuse to go with those who would sacrifice political liberty to gain economic justice," said Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam of the Methodist Episcopal church, in the opening address'of ine convention of the north: central division of the Iowa State Teachers association at the high school auditorium Thursday evening. "I see no reason why we cannot use our political freedom to gain economic liberty," continued the bishop, giving an address on "Culture and the Preservation of Democracy:" .. "Somehow we must work out a synthesis where in the creative initiative that flowed from American individualism may be preserved while we appropriate what benefits lie in collective action." IlzaNiemack Plays. The opening program of the teachers convention included a half hour concert by Miss Ilza Niemack, concert violinist and instructor in the violin at Iowa State college at Ames, and invocation by the Rev. Clarence E. Flynn of the First Methodist church. Harold J. Williams, Spencer, president of the north central division, presided at the meeting. . . Â· Â·: "Democracy will be preserved insofar 'as the percentage of .cultured people in the community increases," the bishop, former president of DePauw university .of Greencastle, Ind., declared. Culture, he maintained is not "encyclopedism." Neither is it "specialism." .,:It must .have "breadth oÂ£ outlook/' Refinement, of Taste. "A cultured man, Catholic in sympathy, is one with cultured men everywhere, seeking to know them as they search for truth and goodness and beauty," he continued. "A refinement of taste, an appreciation of beauty and a delicacy of feeling." Other qualifications for a man of culture, he added are "a sense of measure, a modesty of judgment and the critical habit, of mind, that habit which is the very soul of liberty. - "What does one mean by that? The unbiased approach, to any problem and the undaunted pursuit of its solution in true scientific spirit It is precisely this habit of mind that is - essential to the continuance of democracy. It" is Â·for that reason I'say that insofar as the proportion of cultured people increases, the continuance of democracy, is insured. Breadth. 61; Outlook. "Hqweveii a per on may be one whose understanding is -quickened and deepened, he may be known for his breadth oÂ£ outlook and his catholicity of sympathies; as we become acquainted with his aesthetic tastes, we may find there a refinement oÂ£ -taste in fact, an appreciation oÂ£ beauty and a delicacy- of feeling; he may be trained in the laboratories sufficiently to justify the statement that he is ruled by a sense of measure, a modesty of judgment, and a critical habit of mind. But unless he possesses something more, it would seem to me that he does not measure up to the term--cultured man. The something more is'in the realm of the heart. It is that something^ that Jesus of Nazareth stressed when he defined religion. We may call it love. "But what has this to do with the: preservation of democracy? Everything! Democracy will be preserved insofar./as the percentage of cultured people in the community increases. Fascism and Communism., "Less than.26 per cent of the population of Europe lives under regimes that remotely resemble democracy. Communism and fascism, each relying .upon dictatorship, constitute fundamental challenges to democracy everywhere. Mussolini insists that this is the century of fascism. Communists belive their eventual rule inevitable. Is Lincoln's faith in a nation conceived ; in liberty . and dedicated to the proposition that all men are' created equal a forlorn hope? "Is democracy capable of surviving .the extraordinary changes that are upon us? "Our era may prove to be one of fundamental transition, as sig- nigicant as that occasioned by the now learning in the period we call the renaissance. New teaming 1 Manifested. "Religiously, the new learning manifested itself in the reformation. Politically, it found expression in the English,. French and American revolutions. Industrially the new .learning brought the scientific method to men, and inventive genius created the stream driven machine, with the result known as .the'industrial revolution. Â· ''We witnessed the. passing of feudalism with' its attendant serfdom; the supercession of medieval scholasticism and the coming of emancipating science; the birth oÂ£ the democratic state; the rise of modern capitalism; with its corollaries," imperialism and plutocracy, as well as a rapid rise in the standard of living and in population. "These centuries were marked by struggle. The pi-ice of progress was costly, terrible costly. In the midst of conflict, contemporaries --save for a few enlightened leaders and penetrating thinkers-were unable to comprehend the fact that mankind was pressing on to the promised land that in divine wisdom, is forever beyond but forever beckoning man. Adjusted to New Day. "Change occurred. Institutions had to adjust themselves to the new day, or die. Extraordinary adjustments,\jzere made, and were made peacefully. But some were accompanied by bloodshed. "The aristocracy of France was, decapitated by the guillotine of revolution. American freedom was won by fearless colonists, who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor; signed a declaration of independence; and later founded an enduring government upon a constitution. "Men who so easily inherit the liberties these men and women won will do welt to remember that the achievement was marked by a Concord shot that 'was heard round the world' and the tragic winter at Valley Forge, as well as by the triumph of Yorktown. "The point. I seek to stress is this: Institutions of pre-renaissance Europe has to adapt themselves to the new day the new learning brought. Institutions, like organisms, 'must adapt themselves to changed environment if they would survive. Adaptation Necessary. "We/are now laced by the same stern necessity. Of course, we can plod along, unaware of marching hosts who-pass us by, but a day of reckoning comes, and in that day we may find ourselves living in a yesterday that is forgotten. "Capitalistic democracy must solve certain problems. Laski in his Democracy in Crisis defines these issues and insists that (1) It has to solve the contradiction between its power to produce and its inability to distribute in a rational or morally adequate way; (2) It has to remove the barriers : which economic nationalism places in the way of an unimpeded world market; (3) It has to 'remove the fear of insecurity by which the worker's life is haunted; (4) It has to end the folly of international competition in wage rates and hours of labor.- It has to save western standards from the slave labor of the east; (5) It has to cut away the jungle growth of vested interest which at present so seriously impairs its efficiency; (6) It has to find some way of removing from the clash of competing im- perialisms those structures of armed power which, clothed .in the garb of national sovereignty, make certain the perpetual threat of insecurity and, born of it, the advent of-war. Can democracy do this? Will the ruling forces in democratic states allow the masses to do this by the methods of democracy? Repudiates Dictatorship. "Personally, I repudiate the whole concept of dictatorship. I refuse to go with those who would sacrifice political liberty to .gain economic justice. I see no" reason why we cannot use our political freedom to gain economic liberty. But can we carry on without fun- damental'readjustment in the light of a contracting world market? Can these readjustments be made peacefully? "We must recall that democracy is both a form of government and likewise ;an ideal. Fundamentally democracy is change by consent. It is a government of public opinion. Basically power rests in trie people. "The interplay of ideas, the struggle of conflicting interests cannot be avoided and ought not to be avoided, in democracy. But in democracy such conflict is under law and order; accompanied by the maintenance of civil liberties whereby the opposition may be vocal and effective in its scrutiny and criticism, and by. a spirit that results in obedience to law by the minority until such time as a result of education and persuasion it can win the assent of the majority and change the law. Can Achieve Change. "Change is achieved within the democratic structure by free men who turn science on the one' hand, and I trust to religion on the, other, for the purpose oÂ£ ^ontroling that which is controllable in the interests of social wellbeing. The avenues through which originality may flow are kept open. We realize with Roscoe Pound that the maintenance oÂ£ a technic of change is the fundamental principle of : stability. "As an ideal we associate liberty, equality, fraternity with the concept of democracy, also the' rights of man, and life, liberty and the pursuit of hapiness. We do not mean equality of capacity or attainment, but of circumstances, institutions and manner of life. Equality of consideration does not mean, identity of provision, says Tawney. As we reach equality oÂ£ consideration, there will be greater differentiation in treatment. Somehow w e , must work out a sythesis wherein the creative initiative that flowed from American individualism may be preserved while we appropriate what benefits may lie in collective action. Â·"Under dictatorship, the creative mind is crushed, leadership of the opposition is decapitated, one must be partisan in the community. The civil liberties are destroyed. For a. time progress may be made under dictatorship, but eventually revolution follows, or if the masses prove to be inert, they descend to sluggishness and power passes to more virile people. . "Personally, I refuse to go with those who will destroy political liberty in the quest for economic security. I cannot believe that intelligent men and women, the heirs of the freedom associated with the whole concept of political democracy will abandon their heritage. It would seem to me infinitely wiser to use political freedom for the purpose of winning economic justice. The teaching staff of America must reveal a complete understanding of the values that lie in political democracy. These values must be treasured. They must not be worshipped. They must be used, used by' loyal men nnd women to bring abundant living to all of our people--to realize the dream of our hearts-namely, the creation of America the beautiful. We must look forward to the day when our good shall be in fact 'crowned with brotherhood from sea to shining sea 1 and we shall indeed behold our alabaster cities 'undimmcd by human tears. 1 " Â·Radio News and Time-Table KGLO Alason City.

CLARKE TO TALK ON COURT PLANS Chief Justice Hughes May,' Go Before Committee Next Week. WASHINGTON, #P) -- Senator- Robinson of, Arkansas, the democratic leader, announced Friday that John Hessin Clarke, only living retired supreme court justice, would discuss President Roosevelt's court reorganization program in a radio address Monday night. . Robinson made the announcement in the senate a short while after William Draper Lewis, director of the American law institute, had told the senate judiciary committee that the president's proposals were "conservative." "To do.nothing," h'e said, "is inevitably to invite radical and regrettable action." Hughes May Speak. As he spoke in behalf of Mr. Roosevelt's request for authority to enlarge the high court unless justices over 70 retire," the committee room buzzed with reports Chief Justice Hughes may be the principal witness at the committee hearings next week. Whether Mr. Hughes will" be willing to testify apparently depends in part on discussions with other members of the high court.
