PAGE TEN FRED PERRY BOUNCES YANKS AROUND IN 1934 TENNIS AS AMERICAN PRESTIGE WANES THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas BY BOB CAVAGNARO, Arrcciatcd Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK. Jan. 9 (XP)—Change the tense of the old phrase, "The British AIT Coming," to ''The British Have Come" nnd there you have the 1934 tennis campaign in a nutshell. The racquet-wielding sons and daughters of John Bull showed up every wherp and, with a few except-inns, mopped up everything in The British Lion and Lioness of the Courts—Frederick J. Perry and Dorothy Round—restored to Great Britain the Wimbledon men's and Tvc'.jm:n's singles championships, ending long periods of domination of the generally recognized world's championships by invaders. This same Perry led the British DAVIS Cup forces to victory over a United States team in a successful tfjfense of /the International trophy gained in 1933 in the challenge rcund from the French, and then "Peerless Perry" came over to America and brushed aside all opposition to retain our singles championship, defeating Wilmer Allison, a home-bred, in a five-set final After his 1934 American campaign, Perry sailed from the Pacific Coast for Australia, leaving on the clock a flock of professional promoters, seeking his signature to movie and pro tennis contracts. Perry is to return from Australia in February and whether he will capitulate to profe-^ional offers is conjectural. The American Davis Cup team of Frank Shields, Sidney B. Wood Jr George Martin Lott Jr., and Lester Hollo Stocfen, were chosen for the trip abroad because of their successful performances in the preliminary rounds with Mexico and Canada. When they reached England and participated in local competition there a scare was thrown in the American camp by the unimpressive showing of Lott and Stoefen as a doubles team. They had been counted on as a certain point-winning combination in the inter-zone final against Australia.- Together they combined to give America her fourth straight victory in the Wlghtman cup team series ngainst England, and by a quirk of fate they met later in the final for the women's national championship The match it-suited in a rout for Miss Jacobs and her third successive years as clu.mpion, equalling the trick '.'lined only a few times in the past. With Miss Palfrey she also won the national doubles rown. In the absence of Lott and Stoefen, two Pacific Coast youngsters Donald Budge and Gene Mako, have been listed as bright prospects as their successors. Mako won the intercollegiate title, and with Budge he captured the National Clav Courts, Eastern Grass Courts and Southampton doubles events. The events of the year—failure in the Davis cup and loss for the second year of our national men's title —has seen a drastic revision in the 1934 "first ten" rankings among the men fards of Earth Just a Bite to 'I will think— talk— write .

(SP) —-Visitors to the coast country of Texas during the celebrations of the Centennial of independence in 1936 cannot but be impressed with the growing utilization of its inland waterway system, the full consummation of which would be an intra- coasfcal canal extending from Point Isabel, near the mouth of the Rio Grande, to Sabine Lake at the CAPITOL CHATTER BY CHARLES E.

In view of the historical associations of the Centennial, it is noteworthy that river transportation has interested Texans from the earliest days and yet many Texans •will fail to recall that such conveyance playsd a part, in 1846, In expediting movement of Gen. Zachary Taylor's American Army in its invasion of Mexico. In that year, since the major part of the arm'y was at Corpus Christi and between this place and Brownsville, (or Shannondale), in those days, there was a vast desert to cross, Major John Saunders, one of Taylor's engineer officers, conceived the idea of transporting the troops by water. With the advice of Capt. Mifflin Kennedy, who had been a seaman, there were purchased the steamers "Corvette," "Major Brown" and "Whiteville," which were converted AUSTIN, Jan. 9. (flV-Rcp. Sarah Hughes of Dallas will press for passage of on income tax law at the regular session of the Texas legislature and advocates of a sales tax must circumvent her plans if they are to be successful. Mrs. Hughes is a foe of the sales tax and will use her bill to block that proposition. Enactment of an income tax would be about as effective a bar to the sales tax as could bo devised. The Dallas woman has laid the groundwork for her campaign. She intends to get her bill in early so it will have a low number and be assured of early action at least in the house. Many bills with high numbers are strangled to death in the closing days of a session because of rules that require a two- thirds vote to suspend the calendar of business. Mrs. .Hughes and • her associates succeeded in the last regular session, after much parliamentary maneuvering, in obtaining house approval of an income tax bill patterened after that of the federal government. It levied on the incomes of both individuals and corporations. In that session the sales tax was a paramount issue and had the regarded as an alternative by the house. The house passed the sales tax by a slight majority but it ran into serious opposition in the senate and never gained floor considera- s?LSsw«r%s^si asar^^srs?^ v , --— ^ v «*,j waved only for Helen Jacobs and branch of the in- nd Stripes can the exploits of Sarah Palfic PHONE 36 Reliable aerrlw .„« treatment.

The ships were then taken up the Rio Grande to Browr)S vilie nnd continued to serve as both transports and freighters, carrying arms, men and munitions to thi concentration camp at Camargo, opposite Port Ringold, or as It was known in those days, "Rancho Davis. After the War with Mexico, Cap- f ain Kennedy associated himself with Richard King, founder of the famous King Ranch in Nueces county, and they placed in commission on the Rio Grande more than 20 boats, which did commercial transport duty on ,that stream until about 1874, although records show that boats of light draught were going up the river as far as Roma as late as 1879. Between the mouth of the Rio Grande and Brownsville there was a regular line of steam packets in service up to 1882, but the Rio Grande, west of Brownsville, seems to have become so filled with sandbars and shoals after the 70s' that tlon. Mrs. Hughes is convinced the income tax is more equitable than the sales tax. She asserts the sales tax is a scheme through which large corporations would be relieved of huge sums in taxes that would be passed on to the consuming public. Mrs. Hughes believes a sales tax is the last resort of a desperate government and is contrary to all democratic principles. The campaign declarations of James V. Allrcd. governor-elect, that he would veto a general sales tax appear to have taken some of the wind out of the sails of those supporting this proposition. Even with the treasury in such a sad plight It is doubtful if Allred would disregard his promises and junk a specific platform declaration of the democratic party. House sentiment against a sales tax likely will be as strong in the 44th legislature as it was in the 43rd. Strong support of a sales tax was manifest, however, at hearings of the senate tax inquiry committee recently, indicating that the proposal is far from dead.

Thome loves Spain. He will be fairly sure that he also understands Spain. 'Delay In the Sun" is another of hose novels in which a number of people are confined within comparatively narrow boundaries, a sort of Spanish "Grand Hotel" or "Promenade Deck." Mr. Thome's people are English, however. And their joandaries are those of a little Spanish town not on any map. His people are on their way to Corunna by motorbus. At Corunna the bus is stopped by one of the Innumerable strikes which pester modern Spain. Everybody had been going somewhere, intent on doing something that seemed more or less important. Suddenly nobody Is going anywhere. The people include a Jewish traveling salesman who compensates for his intense loneliness by "most distinguished contribution to American literature for children in 1933," has given us another book, which tells the story of HO-MING a Girl of New China from the time she was 12 'till 17 years old. Ho-Ming was a light-hearted, care-free child who skipped rather in general, and very rude to the Spanish in particular; opposite him, in the drama, plays Mrs. Tassall, who is a widow in her thirties and very middle class. There arc Jean and Betty, on mannish and the other fidgety. There are Julian and John, Juliai being John's father although Join doesn't know it. There are two newlyweds, the man handsome and stupid, the woman ill and afraid she cannot hold her husband. Many things are possible „.„, such a cast, but telling what they are would be like naming the murderer in a piece on an S. S. Van Dine book. Mr. Thorne manages his little drama, brilliantly.

She had cried when her feet had been bound in babyhood as was the old Chinese custom and her father ordered that they be left free. His mother was scandalized and never ceased to deplore that the child had feet like a coolie, saying that "never in the history of Sung house had a maid walked on such ugliness." Gradually, the spirit of the new China was making itself felt in the Sung household as in other Chinese homes. Ho-Ming longed to go to school and learn from books. He father understood her feelings for he had always had this unsatisfied desire. Nothing escaped the child's brigh eyes as she went on errands an no bit of news dropped in he hearing when on the street or whil waiting her turn to be served a the store but was absorbed to b repeated later to the family a homo. Only the grandmother wa continually being shocked at liber tics permitted Ho-Ming and othei girls of her age. The Old Era is represented by the grandmother in the home who frowned on all tendency to change who resented the freedom permittee Ho-Ming which, from her viewpoint, was unseemly for a girl. Ho-Ming hears the Wei-Doctoi discussing the danger of mosquitoes before a class and gets this confused with the evil spirits of her grandmother's tales, with amusing results. In time of need, without consulting tier parents, she seeks the Wei-Doctor who becomes interested in the child and, later, makes it possible for her to go to school to "learn books." The modern ideas of the doctor conflict with the traditions and the superstitions which surround her home life, but she persists in her efforts to understand. The uprising of modern youth in China is presented at some length. There is flood, followed by famine, resulting in disease and death. Thru it all, Ho-Ming, a courageous figure serving faithfully as assistant to the doctor. Her vision of the future includes a medical course at Shanghai and a visit to far-away New York City the home of her American teacher. Thirty-seven illustrations, four in full color, add interest to the pages These were drawn by Kurt Wiese who lived many years In China and is familiar with the figures and scenes which he pictures.

(8P)—.Rec- ommendation that a State appropriation of $3,000,000 be requested of I the State Legislature at its regular session in January by the Texas Centennial Commission was agreed upon at a meeting of the executive committee of that body at a session held here. Specific appropriations to be sought by the Commission for the 1936 commemoration of Texas independence, in the opinion of the executive committee, should be$1,250,000 for the central exposition at Dallas, $1,000,000 for celebrations to be held at various historic spots throughout the state to be agreed upon and $750,000 for a nationwide campaign advertising the central exposition and these celebrations throughout 1835 and 1936. The executive committee's recommendation will be presented to the commission at an early date and, if approved, it is hoped that an appropriation bill would be ready for introduction when the legislature convenes Jan. 8. No specific means of raising the money would be suggested. In the meantime, according to WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 9, 1935. members of the executive committee, overwhelming support of the proposal to allow immediate use of the $3,000,000 bonds voted by Dallas for financing the Texas Centennial Central Exposition is indicated by early returns from a postcard poll of the Dallas citizens Utilization of these bonds and the proposed consequent issuance Of $2,000,000 bonds by the Texas Centennial Central Exposition, a corporation, under the revamped Dallas plan, would eliminate necessity for delay in preparing for the cen- tra) exposition pending assurance of desired state and federal financial supoprt. Reports to the Centennial commission from all sections of the state, it was announced, are indicative of renewed and augmented interest in and enthusiasm for the Centennial project. "The people of the State," says a statement by the chairman of the executive committee, "are Just waiting for the new plan to be submitted to them so that they can approve it, judging,from reports we have received."
