W. invasion vJ 1 }ropose $3,000,000 Pool lor Mailing Letters ( nitet! Press Tensed H ire NEW YORK—Wm. H. Stayton, chairman of the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment, asked financial support from 300 Republican 44wets’’ last night for a $3.000,000 campaign fund to conduct a national referendum on prohibition. Stayton spoke at a private dinner sponsored by Geo. B. Wightman, .New York broker. Other speakers were Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler. Borah Says, Uphold The U. S. Constitution XEW HAVfX, Conn. — Sen. Wm. E. Borah, advocate of a strict prohibition enforcement plank in the 192S Republican national platform, told an audience here last ni^ht he believed the convention would vote *‘to uphold the constitution." Godiva W as Idle Soldiers of the New Mexico National Guard are shown halting an auh ia<>' li nrar the state line. The guardsmen were ordered out by Gov. Frank Dillon after the invasion of southern coal fields in Colorado by the I. \V. W. strikers, wit h resultant bloodshed. Soldiers are now stationed on the motor highway south of Trinidad. Colo., and north of Raton, along the state line. president of Columbia University; former Sen. Jas. W. Wadsworth, and i'ormer Rep. John Philip Hill, of Maryland. Wrhile the speeches were not made public, it was understood two main points were stressed. One was for a national referendum to be held along the same general lines as the New York 1926 vote when citizens overwhelmingly voiced their opinion for revision. The second was for the Republican party at the 1928 national convention to pattern its plank after the 1880 one which pro- 3 >osed giving each state the fullest iiberty in dealing with its domestic affairs. Stayton suggested that a plank calling for a national prohibition referendum be placed in the 1928 platforms of both parties. He also wanted the referendum’s results to be used as a basis for future action. The $3,000.000 campaign would be used, he said, to tell the voters of the high points of the “wets” arguments. The money is sought for two letters to each of the 27,000,000 voters in the United States. At five cents a letter this would cost about 53.000.000, SANTA AGAIN kills self SEEKS NAMES where loved SCHOOL CASE SETS EXAMPLE Only City Wh ere Recovered F unds El Paso county is the only county in the state where banks containing county school funds have failed and all the school money been recovered, Miss Lillian Huggett, school superintendent, said today. “T. P. Walker, state school auditor, told me this when I was at Austin last week,” Miss Huggett said. She returned from the State Teachers’ convention, Monday night. “Walker said he is writing letters to other counties telling them that it is possible to recover all school money from failed banks because El Paso county has done so.” Miss Huggett said more than 6000 delegates registered for the Houston convention. Gov. Dan Moody was one of the speakers. He appealed for support of a constitutional amendment to be voted on next November which would change the ¡state board of education. The board now is composed of the governor, .secretary of state, and comptroller. Under the amendment it would consist of 10 members appointed by ihe governor from a list of 20 names submitted by the heads of Texas L'olleges. Pres. H. Y. Benedict, president of Texas university, appealed for more junior colleges in the state to relieve congestion in lower classes at <he university, Miss Huggett said.

For Thursday at 9:45 a. m. the Ellanay theater and the Po will be hosts to the kiddies at a special showing of “Ben Hur.” The orphans know they are going to a big movie, but they don’t quite realize how big it is. "It's goinj to be the finest show they ever saw for “Een Hur” is the finest picture that ever was made, most everyone says. It’s a story of Christ's time, and not too deep for the little fellows and girls. It has so many exciting scenes like the big sea battle when scores of men are flung into the sea and the big chariot race, such a race never before was seen in the movies. It’ll be a big day for the orphans, and crippled children. Empire Bottling Works will give each child a sack of candy. El Paso Electric Co., will take the children to the theater in street cars and send busses down the valley to St. Margaret's orphanage. The special matinee was the idea of John Paxton, manager of Dent theaters. He asked the Post to help him show' the orphans a good time. Institutions to be represented at the show are: Crippled Children’s j school, El Paso Protestant Children’s home, Sacred Heart orphanage, Salvation Army Children's home, Associated Charities nursery, Guadalu- j pano Day Nursery, Krakauer Memorial home, and St. Margaret's orphanage. R. R. Jones, assistant superin*en- dent of city schools, today said the matinee is the finest treat the crip- j pled children could have. He has arranged to have the Crippled Children’s school bus take the cripples to the show. Dayton Payne. Ellanay organist, will play free of charge at the matinee. Dean Tells Freshmen Not lo Loaf “I shall do nothing to cheapen myself or my college.” This is the slogan Dean C. A. Puckett of College of Mines proposed to the Freshman class at a meeting held Monday in Mines’ stadium. Puckett lectured to Freshmen on how to study and told them that they are being badly fooled by upperclassmen. “You see upperclassmen lounging around the campus as tho they were doing nothing,” he said. “You believe that they don’t study. But they do study or they wouldn't be upperclassmen. “The attitude of most Freshmen is this—I am here. Teach me if you can.—That was all right in high school, but in college the proposition is more this—the knowledge is here, get it if you can. “Contact with your fellow students. with your professors, with your books, and with your institution all are parts of your college life. But to take part in these things properly, you must budget your time. You will find that before you are thru college you will have to budget your time so you might as well begin now.” More Freshmen fail to make their courses than any other class of students, Puckett said. Next reports on failing Mines student, will be sent to their parents or guardian* on Dec. 15, just before the Christmas holidays. Deaths Wm. J. Pearce, who operates the Green Nursery in Pontiac, Mich., dropped dead in the lobby of a local hotel early today from heart failure, j Pearce had just spoken to the; desk clerk when he fell dead.

Both County Judge E. B. McClintock and Mayor R. E. Thomason said they will not ask employes | to get out the vote. “I am for the bond issue,” Mayor , Thomason said. “But, I am not going to dictate what city employes shall do. Everyone is free to do as he pleases both in voting or in working to get votes.” Judge McClintock said the same thing applies to county employes. The election is Dec. 17. Poll taxes I purchased a year ago will be used at this election. County Atty. Dave \ Mulcahy said. Poll taxes being sold now will not give the right to vote in the bond election.
