PAGE FOtffi THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Patnpftj Texas SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 18, 1085 Mice Send Girl Cagers Up Walls In Poplar Bluff POPLAR BLUFF, Mo.. Jan. 12 (/P) —That cats may look at queens is automatic but, it seems, mice may tidt look at girls playing basketball H the game Is to go on in regulation style. Someone (small boys suspected) loosed 22 field mice in the gymnasium where the Poplar Bluff senior and junior girls were playing. Some players scaled the balcony as the mice scurried across the floor. Others ran screaming to the showers. Officials finally restored order. i Miss Carrie Fann, hardy senior center, captured one of the rodents and carried it in a pocket for the rest of the game. The outcome was never in doubt. When Miss Fann received the ball she had it to herself, all other players maintaining a respectful distance. Final score: Seniors 14; juniors 8. ALLRED (Continued from page I.j City Of Tyler Refuses To Buy Hot' Gasoline TYLER, Jan. 12. (yp)—The city of Tyler will not knowingly purchase "hot" gasoline from the East Texas field at any price. So said G. V. McNallie, city purchasing agent, today in announcing the city would reject a recent shipment of 2,039 gallons of gasoline unless it was satisfied it was not "hot" gasoline. E. N. Stanley, chief of the railroad commission's East Texas division, said only one carload of un- tendered gasoline shipped Thursday Went to Tyler. TALLEY (Continued from page 1.) When Talley first became sheriff the county seat and courthouse were at old Ochiltree, and the town ol Perryton had never been though! of. The dream of the 500 inhabitants of that county at that time was the securing of a railroad to run through Ochiltree. Talley was one of tl{s prime movers in the promotion of the railway known as the Enid, Ochiltree & Western, surveyed to run from Enid, Oklahoma through Ochiltree to Dalhart. Foi a time, it looked as though this dream would' become true, and about twenty miles of road was grad- and steel laid east from Dalhart toward Dumas. Then, along in days shortly aflei the WQi;l(J..Was, .the_S.mta -Ee. -was, homa to Spearman, the end of the constructed from Shattuck, Okte- line for many year, and Ochiltree became a thing of the past. Sheriff Talley had his offices for years in the old courthouse, now the Am- erican'Legion Hall. Always a fearless officer, Sheriff Talley: has, been more Interested in getting his fellow man out of trouble than in causing them trouble no question but what many a young man has been steered away from a life of crime through the kindly interest that Sheriff Talley has shown in them after they hac gotten in trouble. Hard boileci treatment of first offenders has made many a criminal and Talley does not believe in that kind of law enforcement. Being a peace officer is a very small part of the job of being sheriff in this county. In all the years that Sheriff Talley has served as tax collector, there has never been a single rumor as to the manner in which he has handled the thousands and thousands of dollars that has gone through his hands in tax collection. On January 1, when he took office for the fourteenth term tbje duties of making up the assessment rolls were added to the sheriff and tax collection department. There are many people in Ochiltree county who helped elect Talley in 1934, whose parents voted for him before they were married. Why Reporters Like Air Queen OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 12 (/P)— Amelia Earhart Rutnam had a chance to prove she was first lady of the air almost as soon as the wheels of her plane spurred the runway of the airport here today at the end of her Honolulu flight. Reporters crowded about her with questions, but a burly policeman intervened and shoved them off. "But we have deadlines to make," argued one of the reporters. "To with deadlines," retorted the policeman. Mrs. Putnam settled the argument. "But officer,' she said, "deadlines ere important sometimes." The reporters asked their questions unmolested. AGED MAN DIES John Tlnsley Teel, 72, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nema Mohon, Kingsmill Cabot Co., camp, yesterday morning. The body was taken overland to McCamey by the Pampa Mortuary. Mr. Teel is survived by his wife, and daughter, Mrs. Hohon. Other survivors (are a sister, Mrs. John Brownlee and a brother, James J.

In the absence of chief Justice C. M. Ctireton of the supreme court, who usually administers the oath, this function will fall to William Pierson, senior associate justice. Justice ; Cureton has gone to Washington for n convention of Veterans of Foreign Wars. As is customary, Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson have been invited to sit on the platform while Allred Is inaugurated. Two years ago. R. S. Sterling of Houston, beaten for reelection by Mrs. Ferguson, did not remain for his opponent's Induction into office. Texas' young incoming goverhor will be presented to the expected vast assemblage on the capitol lawn by Senator Tom Deberry of Bogata. Allred asked Senator Deberry to introduce him and Rev. Lawrence Wharton, pastor of the First Presbyterian church here, to deliver the invocation. Raymond anil Ben. Too Three generations of Allred's family and four of that of his wife, the former Joe Betsy Miller, are expected to be on the platform. They include the governor-elect's parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. Allred of Bowie, four brothers, O. H. of Fort Worth, Ben P. of Dallas and Raymond and Rcnne, Jr., of Tyler, two sisters, Mrs. T. J. Christian of Fort Worth and Miss Hazel Allred of San Antonio, and two small sons, Jimmy Jr. and David. In addition, Mrs. Allred's grandmother, Mi's. J. N. Kimberlin of Altus, Okla., and her parents, Mi-, and Mrs. Claude Miller of Wichita Falls, planned to attend. A platoon of battery B 131st field artillery, Texas National Guard, from Wichita Falls, will fire the gubernatorial salute. Bands will be playing throughout the day around the capitol, in hotel lobbies and on downtown streets. A half dozen or more civil and military bands are expected. In an effort to accommodate the crowd, the formal reception and ball will be divided into four parts. Dance orchestras will play at Gregory gymnasium at the University of Texas, in two hotel ball rooms and at the capitol. The receiving line of notables will form first at Gregory gymnasium, then go later to the other ballrooms. Tile exact order in the receiving- line has not yet been announced. The retiring governor and lieutenant governor and their husbands or wives, former governors and their wives, probably will be near the head. Incoming officials will have places in the order of their succession to the governorship. More than 1,000 Austin residents are serving on committees to arrange for the ball. Over 15,000 invitations and admission tickets have been issued. CONGRESS (Continued from page U possibly 30 days, and we would be back on the road to normalcy," President Can' Act Congressional, inflationists meanwhile studied -the possibility of, iri- creasing the membership of the supreme court from nine to 11 or 12 within the 25 days elapsing between the decision and the court ruling upon a: government appeal' for rer consideration. Such a course, however, -was regarded as a last resort, although-all were agreed that certainly PresJ, dent Roosevelt would leave nothing undone to offset a decision which would destroy the new monetary system built up by the administration. A third possible avenue of action may lie in the president declaring an emergency and asserting control over the currency under the old wartime laws which he invoked to bring order out of the banking and financial disruption which existed when he took office. Baylor's Soph Prexy Returned WACO, Jan. 12 (/P)—The Baylor university sophomore class tonight had its president, Don Whjitten- berg, at the. head of the banquet table in the role of toastmaster. day by five freshmen and taken to day by five freshment and taken to Shreveport, La., to prevent his attendance but was returned last night after President Pat M. Neff urged his captors to return to the campus and bring' the Soph prexy. It was the first such, class kid- naping since Neff, former governor of Texas, assumed the presidency three years ago. He promised it would not happen again in the future. Gillham Named By Lincoln Life As Representative J. O: Gillham has been appointed Pampa representative for the Lincoln National Life Insurance company of Port Wayne, Indiana, according to an announcement made by O. D. Douglas, general agent in San Antonio. Mr. Gillham will operate in this city and surrounding territory, directly under the, O. D. Douglas Agency. The company which he represents has made an outstanding record of sales for 1934, registering a 43.6 per cent increase over 1933, as compared to a 10 per cent increase for life insurance companies as a whole. The Lincoln National Life ranks 18th in size among all the life companies in the United States. Mr. Gillham will retain his position as assistant cashier of the First National bank. 4B» . Miss Hazel Guyer of Panhandle visited friends here yesterday. «*» A- D. Smith ol LeFors was in the city last night. , SAAR (Continued from cage 1.) for Germany wore 54,000 Saarland- ers residing abroad. Germany sent 48,000 of them, in special trains that rolled into the Saar yesterday and today. The rest came from widely scattered parts of the globe—Europe and Asia, Africa and the Americas—and Nazis paid the passage for most. SAARBRUECKEN, Saar Basin Territory, Jan. 12. (/P)—Results of the historic plebiscite tomorrow Will not be made known until Tuesday, when all votes hate been tallied. Elaborate precautions have been taken against leaks and no telephone will be Installed in the Wartbufg auditorium where the votes will be counted. Fur- thcrmorey the 300 newspapermen covering: the plebiscite will be barred from telephonic communication until after A. Erodhe, president of the plebiscite commission, has broadcast the results in French and German. Because the vltupertxtive, often violent campaign that has raged in the area for weeks has sharply drawn the line between communism and Nnziism, however, some observers believed the anti-Nazis tomorrow might poll more votes than expected. Welded into one common front against Hitlerism and Nazlism are such sometime mutually hostile elements as communists, socialists and part of the Basin's overwhelmingly Catholic population. The communists and socialists see in the vote their last stand against Europe's dictatorships, and the balloting will provide the supreme test between their forces and those of Naziism. For the world, too, the vote has significance in that it will be the first time Hitler and his doctrines have been tested in an absolutely free election. Should the German cause poll 90 per cent of the votes, leaders of the (Nazi) German front have said, the ox-erwhelmlng endorsement given Hitler In last August's Nazi-controlled Gei-man election would be strikingly vindicated. A lesser majority for the Nazis, observers believe, would indicate strong anti- Nazi sentiment, since many of the region's predominantly German population are expected to vote for reunion with Germany even though they do not approve of Hitler. Wild Rumors Aired The wildest blood-and-thunder rumors were circulated, meanwhile, as both sides put in the final licks In their campaigns of propaganda. Newspapers, which for weeks had been little more than party propaganda sheets, appeared with, burning headlines. The Preiheit, of whom Max Braun, socialist leader and head of the anti-nazi common front, is editor, coldly announced that nazis were preparing to kill every Saar- lander who votes for the status quo. "Ward leaders," the newspaper said, "will call at homes Monday morning and kill all who vote for the status quo." Earlier Jewish residents, who make up only half of one per cent of thje population, said they had been "advised" to go to Germany tonight and return next week after the voting, having their passports stamped to show they did not vote. The "advice," the Jews charged, came from the nazis, who intimated that they might escape reprisals after the plebiscite if they took the advice. Arguments of the contending factions were well summed up in the statements of two party leaders. "Those few persons who have not been persuaded to join the German front," said Jacob Pirro, na- zi leader, "are men of our own blood influenced by false prophets not to prevent but only to postpone a return of the Saar territory to Germany." "Wo are all Germans and we want eventually to return to Germany," said the socialist, Braun. "But we are determined that the Saar shall not go to Hitler. There is a difference between Germany and Hitler." ' PASTIME (Continued Irom page 1.) history, geography, printing, paper making, and the postal customs of hundreds of countries and colonies which issue stamps. To identify a stamp, one must be able to recognize its color, perforation scale, water mark, gum, engraved 1 words or symbols, and to determine its authenticity. Stamps, like coins, are counterfeited. Magnification Is often necessary to determine the genuineness of what purports to be a valuable stamp. Some, stamps are worth more used than unused, because of the historical importance of the use, such as to carry a letter from a member of the Byrd expedition. Stamps are collected singly, in blocks of four, or even in whole sheets as the post- office receives them. Some are pre-canceled by postal authorities for big companies to expedite handling_ of packages. Some stamps bear surcharges of the name of the city : or performatipns bearing the initials or symbols of the firm using them —in order to prevent or to trace thefts. Some collectors gather freak stamps, made by printing errors and pay premiums for them. Not every stamp is valuable, of course. The 1, 2, and 3-cent stamps used on common correspondence are nearly worthless because there are so many of them. Some issues, such as the recent park series, become valuable in time because the number was limited. A stamp worth 5 cents today will gradually increase in value through the years, although at the end of 20 years it may not be selling for more than 25 to 40 cents. Stamps are removed from envelopes, etc., by soaking for 15 minutes in cold water. They are mounted with transparent, peelable "hinges" or paper'strips. They may be obtained in new or used condition from one's friends, from other collectors, from stamp companies, or Irom users ol large quantities of mailed matter. They are bonghl Individually from lists, "on approval' In sheets, in mixed packets, or even by the pound. The prices range from $1 per thousand to tens 01 thousands of dollars for a very rare variety. Governments and their rulers collect stamps. The British Museum boasts a fabulously valuable collection. Uncle Sam has a stamp rmis- cum. The United States philatelic agency, which sells new stamps to collectors, employs 31 persons. Recently a Norfolk, Va., stamp club protested to President ttoosevelt the action of the postmaster general In selling to a few friends certain sheets of stamps which were not offered to the public. Prominent business men of Norfolk were among the collectors who signed the protest. To talk stamps expertly, you must know hundreds of special terms. But to collect them you need next to nothing. The Boy Scouts of America have a handbook on stamp collecting and award a merit badge for knowledge of the hobby. The philatelist can follow his hobby with any desired degree of time, expense, and specialization. He can be sure that his knowledge will expand and that he will always be associated In interest with many of the world's most famous men and women. The collection which he assembles in a lifetime may be more valuable to his heirs than his insurance! AMELIA (Continued ffom page 1.) —at Trenton, concentrating upon examination of the ransome notes in an effort to sbjake, through its own experts, the evidence yesterday of a state witness that the notes were written by Hauptmann. With experts from several parts of the country present, the defense studied the notes, and indicated that the experts believed they were wrlt- :en not by Hauptmann as contended, but by Isador Fisch. No announcement concerning their findings at the end of today's examination was made, Beilly stat- ng that because members of the jrosecution staff had been present, ;he "jury of experts" would not nake known "tlieir findings and belief." One flurry whicli developed last night had subsided today when it was announced that the bank note 'ound in Gettysburg, Pa., and which was said to have been part of the ransom money, had been discovered to have no connection with it. An error in giving out the number of the bill was quick- exhausted about the time she landed. For three hous California coastal cities had been awaiting her, and when she swooped down on the airport she took the crowd by surprise. A mighty cheer arose from the 5,000 persons assembled at the field. The crowd surged toward the plane and stopped little short of Its whirring propeller blades. Grabs For Comb It was at that point feminine Instinct got the better of the glob- trotting flier and she reached for the comb. They pushed her plane into a hangar and closed the doors against the admiring crowd but only after many had succeeded in grasping her hand ami shouting words of praise at her. "I don't want to sit. down," she said firmly when an attendant saw her fatigue and offered her a chair. "I've been sitting down a long time." Someone mentioned that she had not been heard from for a considerable time before landing; that there were reports she was battling fog, had strayed from her course; that her gasoline was running low before she reached the coast. They asked if she had been worried. "Worried?" she echoed. "Oh, I thought I would like to have the sight of land a couple of times." Veered off Course Miss Earhart asserted sh,e never was lest but said she veered south of her course and first sighted land 60 miles south of San Francisco. "I wasn't sure that it was land I sighted," she said. "I throttled back my motor purposely to save fuel and I don't understand why anyone should have been worried about me. "The reason I didn't give my position was because I didn't 'shoot' the stars (with a sextant) and therefore couldn't give it." An interviewer mentioned seeing a rainbow over the Golden Gate as Miss Earhart was nearlng the coast. "Oh, rainbows!" she exclaimed. "I flew through many of them on the way here. "I wasted a lot of time because some of the equipment was new, and a new type of compass threw me off. "The ventilator blew off and this bothered me considerable also. "But the motor functioned perfectly and It was only little things, like the ventilator, that bothered me. "I had a lot of sandwiches with me but I didn't eat any of them I did eat a hard-boiled egg, which was quite a luxury, and drank some tomato juice. "I feel just filthy and I want a bath." Miss Earhart said commercial flights between the island and California were "entirely feasible." "They are inevitable," she said, "and we'll be flying everywhere In a short time." Listened To Radio Asked about the three hours during which the outside World heard little or nothing from her plane she said: "I listened to a message broadcast from my husband (George Painter Putnam, the New York publisher) arid was greatly cheered by his voice. I also listened to musical programs broadcast throughout the night." Miss Earhart said she believec the use of two-way voice radio communication was advisable for planes making distance flights. This type of radio was a portion of her elaborate equipment. As she snuggled down into a sof| bed in her hotel room she sighed and said; AUTO LOANS See Ua For Beady CM& T« • Refinance • Buy a new car • Reduce payments • Raise money to meet bills- Prompt and Courteous Attention Given AVI Application*.

The ritirhBer °* wltttesses yet to testify has been reduced, Attorney-General David T. Wilentz said, from about 70 to 45 or 50. Among witnesses eliminated are 215 employes of the J. P. Morgan banking firm who were to have l&stu fled concerning preparation of the ransom money package. tn reviewing the eight days of the trial, Judge George 1C. Large of the prosecution staff said: "Our witnesses have withstood effectively the cross-examination by the defense, and their? evidence stands unlmpeached." The state Is ready to refute any effort by the defense to show that other persons than Hauptmann perpetrated the crime. 'We do not concede In the least the possibility of a gang," he said. 'The fact that we can trace thrt Use of $49,960 of the $50,000 ransom money to Hauptmann rather precludes a; gang. It would be highly Improbable that Hauptmann had assistance and then failed to divide the money With accomplices." The states, Large pointed out, has presented five identifications of Hauptmann—by Col. Lindbergh, by Di'. Johtn F.

Seats are moved forward so that passengers on the rear seat ride nearer the center of the car. This, with new spring suspension, and longer and more flexible springs, gives new smoothness, ease and riding comfort on every road. For 1935, Ford has taken another revolutionary step forward. To the proved performance of the famous Ford V-8 engine has been added remarkable riding comfort. And the entire car has been clothed with a new and modem beauty, both inside and out. The illustration on this page shows the distinctive modem lines of the New Ford V-8 for 1935. When you ,eee the car in the showrooms or on the road you notice at once its larger • size as well as its handsome appearance. It is longer, with more body room, more leg room and more baggage room. It is lower to the ground — easier to step in and out. The front seats are as much as 5y 2 inches wider in some body types. The curved gear shift lever gives additional front-seat comfort. NEW, LONGER SPRINGS OF UNUSUAL FLEXIBILITY The springing of the New Ford V-8 for 1935 is entirely new. The springbase of the car (the distance frdm the front tp the rear spring) is 123 inches, or eleven inches longer than the wheelbase. This has been accomplished by mounting the front spring in front of the front axle and the back spring in back of the rear axle. This design' gives you increased comfort without sacrificing ease of handling. ,';•' : Front and rear springs are longer and more flexible, with tapered leaves • • for the most effective spring action '• and quieter operation.
