Second Part Pages 9 to 16 VOL. 37, NO. 71. CONNELLSVILLE. PA., FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 3, 1939. SIXTEEN PAGES. Commuted Sentence So That Condemned Negro Might "Suffer" Longer Denounced by Legislators, Ministry and Newspapers. HAD CAMPAIGNED ON GOLDEN RULE By United Press. AUSTIN, Tex., Feb. 3.--Governor W. Lee O'Damel, whose campaign platform was the "Golden Rule," denounced by legislators, ministers and newspapers today for having postponed the execution of a Negro so that he might suiter 30 more days. O'Damel's repueved Winzell Williams, whose execution previously had been set for today, because he wanted him to "stole death in the face" 30 days more as additional punishment for killing his employer, an elderly white dairyman. Representative J. E. Winfree, chaiiman of the committee on penal institutions, arose in the House and denounced the governor's statement as "the most heinous, the foulest, and the most inhuman to emanate from a man in this state during the last two decades." Fort Worth pastors condemned the reprieve as a fantastic means of "torture." District Attorney Andrew Patton of Dallas, who obtained Williams' conviction, accused the governor of "straddling" in an attempt to stay within his anti-capital punishment advocacy ana at the same time avoid the criticism of Tcxans shocked by the slaying of a white man by a Negro. "I can neither reconcile this act with any teaching in the Bible nor with the beliefs of anyone opposed to capital punishment," Patton said. "I have never been opposed to the right of the governor to extend the privilege of a reprieve in order that the ends of justice might be preserved. In my experience, however, I have never known a governor to .ise this instrumentality as a medium for a defendant to be tortured." Newspapers generally described O'Damel's motives as a disgrace to the state. They voiced their opinions in front page editorials. Typical comments foHow: The Dallas Dispatch - Journal: "Ons can only feel regret that the governor of a great state would propose a form of torture for one who is already sentenced to the extreme penalty of the law. If capital punishment ib to be, the purpose is served when the condemned is put away as quickly and painlessly as possible." The El Paso Herald-Post: ''The people oC Texas are shocked at Governor O'Daniel's reprieve . . . Texas stands abased before the world. Texas begs forgiveness for the act of her servant." The Fort Worth Press: "We feel sorry for O'Damel. Not 30 days, but for all his days--and all his nights --this thing will come to haunt him. It will cause many people to make a new appraisal of our Texas governor." O'Daniel was elected with the biggest majonty a gubernatorial candidate ever received in Texas. A flour salesman who rose to establish his own company, he toured the state with a hill-billy band, and his campaign pledge was that he would follow the "Golden Rule." He was inaugurated 18 days ago in a ceremony which topped in fanfare even his unique campaign. While Texas governors may reprieve condemned men, the law does not permit them to commute death sentences. Thus, unless the state pardon and parole board, which has this power, acts in his behalf, Williams must die March 6. Before the reprieve was issued, the board re- inewed the case and refused clemency because it considered the :rime "too brutal " Williams' victim was E. B. Atwood, 53. The only public coment favoring .lie govcinor's action came from Williams who said: "I'm prepared to 40, but I'm thankful that the governor has put it ofE 30 days " Poulfrynten Name Durst President UNIONTOWN, Feb. 3.--Fayette County Poultry Producers Cooperative Association effected a perrna- icnt organization Wednesday in the nuditoriun of the County Building.

Finnegan ruled here, for a man to slap his wife's face. In fact, he thinks it would be a good idea if more men did so. | The judge's views were handed down in 'he case of Mrs. Mary F. Kuhar, 22, who said she married ' John Kuhar, Jr., last year and left ! him two weeks later after having | been slapped twice. Now she wanted a divorce. , "It isn't cruelty within the mean- | ing of the law," said the judge, "unless it endangers life. A slap in the face does not endanger life. A man has the right to slap his wife and I think if more of them did so there would be fewer divorces."

They reported ability to arrest rheumatic heart disease in a number oi cViildien by careful administration of fever therapy, permitting the children to return to almost nor- nal acthity. In reporting on arthritis, the researchers said: "It seems to be of value in only infectious arthritis. However, this department feels that fever therapy will be of even greater use m the future treatment of this disease when we are able to destroy organism which aie greatly responsible." In 47 per cent ot the 17 cases of encephal tis treated, patients were restored to usefulness to such a degree that it was no longer necessary for them to take strong sedatives to control their temors, the report stated. The benevolent fever is manufactured in a cylindrical cabinet which uses air heated and moistened by water. Designed by Dr. Ferderber, F. C. Houghton and Carl Gutberlet, of tlie American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers, the cabinet contains a duct and spray system attached to hot and cold water supply and regulated by thermostatically controlled mixing valves. FOUNDRY PRICE UP FIVE CENTS Activity in the coke industry in December in the United States was the highest le\el attained during 1938 and represented the sixth consecutive advance over a preceding month. Tne total output from by-product and beehive ovens amounted to 3,441,545 tons, a gain of 93,822 tons, or 2.8 per cent, in comparison with November produc'ion, and exceeded by 16.3 per cent the rate prevailing in December, 1937.

In comparison with November, the daily rate dropped 0.7 per cent but was 19.1 per cent above the rate obtained in December, 1937. At merchant plants tne daily rate of production increased ].4 per cent while at furnace plants the rate decreased 1.6 per cent, reecting in part the cui- tailment of 5 8 per cent at blast furnace (.jeratiOns.
