H (AP)—Bills to provide for strict regulation of persons employed to represent corporations before the Texas legislature, to provide for sterilization of mentally deficient Inmates of state institutions under certain, conditions and to re-enact a law declaring a moratorium law against the forced sale of real estate were Introduced today In the house/ of representatives. Lobbyists would be required to register with 1 the secretary of state and forced to state the corporations by whom they were employed and the legislation in which they were interested. The' registry would be open to public, inspection. It would be an offense to employ a legislative representative contingent on success or failure of legislation. Corporations hiring lobbyists would be required to file statements with the secretary of state under penalty of having their charters forfeited. Use of improper influence on members of the legislature would be punishable by five years imprisonment in the penitentiary. The proposals we're included in 32 bills on, a variety of subjects and 1.7 joint resolutions proposing amendments to the constitution. Governor-elect James V. Allred, who will assume office tomorrow, made the lobbyists an issue in his campaign last summer and demanded legislation to bring them under strict supervision. 'Sterilization of insane inmates was recommended by the board' of control. The bill would authorize the superintendent of state hospitals to recommend sterilization of any inmate to the' board. Inmates and guardians would be given a hearing and could appeal from the board's orders to the district court. A bill in the senate would establish a state' board to pass on recommendations for sterilization, it would provide also for sterilization of criminals. The mortgage, moratorium would give hard pressed real property owners until August 1, 1936 to seek relief from financial burdens. It was similar to one recently declared unconstitutional by the Texas supreme court. Sponsors said they expected to take a test case to the United States supreme court based on the proposed new law. Several bills and resolutions to submit constitutional amendments were Introduced in the 1 house to provide a system of old age pensions. A bill also was offered to See LEGISLATURE, Page 6 Poll Tax aitd Liquor Vote Are Closely Related If you, are one of those citizens who has very definite ideas on the liquor question perhaps you should take note of the fact that a state vote on prohibition is very likely to be offered this year.

KINNEY (Copyright, 1936, by The Associated PresB) FLEMINGTON, N. J., Jan. 14. (/P)— Albert S. Osborn, Sr., handwriting- expert, today reiterated his identification of Bruno Richard Hauptmann's handwriting as that of the Lindbergh ransom notes. Osborn, who had already asserted he was positive Hauptmann wrote the notes, today, gave the murder Jury the result of further study of the notes and of Hauptmann's admitted handwriting. "Based upon your examination and comparison," Attorney General David T. Wilentz inquired, "can you say who wrote,the ransom notes?" "Yes." > "Who wrote them?" "In my . opinion, Bruno Richard Hauptmann wrote them." "Why do you say so?" "Because," he answered, "in my opinion the evidence is irresistible, unanswerable and overwhelming." And with this the state turned Its expert over to the defense for cross-examination. Letters Are Similar Edward Reilly, attorney for the defendant; indicated immediately with his first questions that he intended to challenge Osborn's dictum the evidence was "unanswerable." He mentioned' numerous letters used In the ransom notes which were not included on the expert's charts and introduced what purported to be the handwriting of the dead Isidor Fisch. Hauptmann claimed it was Fisch who gave him for safekeeping the ransom money which was found in his Bronx garage. Reilly contended, in answer to the state's objections, that it was his right to test Osborn's credibility with the handwriting of anybody, living or dead. Under the attorney's questioning Osborn found there was "a general resemblance" between a "y" purported to have been used by Fisch and a. "y" in the nursery ransom note, but he added. "The writing is very different. They are not sufficiently alike that I .would say they were by the same writer." The witness admitted that a particular "s" taken from Hauptman's admitted writing was not much like a particular "s" selected from one of the 14 ransom notes. He defended his conclusion, nevertheless, saying "my opinion is -not based upon any one comparison." When Reilly contended the ex- part's chart showed evidence that ransom note letters had been copied. Osborn rebuked him: "You See REILLY, P"age 6 Citizens Will Go To LeFors Tonight Good will committees of the chambers of commerce will lead a caravan to LeFors tonight to attend a benefit pie supper at the Methodist church.

(IP) —Oklahoma's varied political scene arose to a new height In pomp and grandeur today as E. W. Marland, wealthy Ponca City oil man, became the state's tenth governor. Silk hats glistened, formal morning clothes adorned the principals, military bands blared and a five mile long procession attended the ceremony. It was a contrast to the simple rites performed when Wiiliam H. (Alfalfa Bill)) Murray took over the governor's duties four years ago. In his customery careless attire with muffler and mustache flying in the breeze and holding a slouch hat In his hand, Murray took the oath from his 91-yearTOld father, U. D. T. Murray. There was no parade and two small bands tooted feebly. Jn the address delivered: by Murray and the one by Marland there was & paradoxical comparison, "Favoritism to the rich," was attack^ by the retiring governor, who prided himself of being of "the common people." Likewise this has been the theme of the program advanced by Marland, reputed to have been worth $30,000,000 at one time. Relief was promised by both and again their ideas were at variance. Murray promised to cut state expenditures to the bone and give re- life to the taxpayers. . Marland in his "new deal" program 'outlined an ambitious social welfare program, to be financed by state money to be paid in by the people. Marland's "new deal" program would cost $25,000,000, he has estimated. He has promised '"security for every Oklahoman," Heading the list of his promises Is his subsistence homestead. plan, which would give homes to 50,000. He also has outlined an extensive program of building dams to prevent floods, a terracing project, reforestation of thousands of acres and bringing: more industries to the state to provide work for the JpWess.

"» Farm Census Is Under Way Now An army of 25,000 census workers, including two in Gray county, are enumerating the nation's farms, farm , population, crop production in 1934, and the number of livestock. Each enumerator has been allotted a specific territory to canvass and has been trained in "schools" held during December. There are 100 inquiries on the farm schedule being used by the census enumerators. These inquiries relate to the tenure, age, and race of the farm operator; the acres in the farm; the classes of land, according to used in 1934; tile farm value; number of farm dwellings occupied and unoccupied; farm population; the number of persons now living on farms who lived in non-farm residences 5 years ago; the number of family laborers and hired help; the acreage and the production of crops in 1934; the number of livestock on farms; and the production of milk, eggs, wool, and mohair in 1934. The enumerators will finish their work during January and the farm schedules should, be on their way to Washington by February 1. In Washington, these farm schedules will be edited, coded, and tabulated and the results published. Because of the effect of drought and. economic conditions, this is regarded as the most important agricultural census ever taken. The work of enumeration, editing, and tabulation will be facilitated as much as possible so that these data may be available in planning and carrying out crop and livestock, farm credit, subsistence homestead, marginal land, and other programs.

Concession that the Hitlerites had been overwhelmingly victorious was seen in a statement issued by Max Braun, leader of the "common front" anti-Nazi organization, who claimed voters had been subjected to duress. Describing the vote as "the worst pseudo - democratic election ever held outside of Germany's farces," Braun said responsible quarters had "failed miserably to live up to their guaranties /or a free election," and arraigned Red Cross nurses who aided invalids in making their ballots as "tools of Hitler."

(IP)— The supreme court agreed today to pass on the contention of R. R. Grovey, Harris, county, Tex., negro, that he was prevented from voting at democratic primaries in that state. He asked a review even though the case had not been decided by the highest state court and the suit was for only $10 damages, which gives no right of appeal. Grovey asserted he was qualified under state laws to vote as a member of the democratic party. At the democratic primary election in July, 1934, he said he was prevented by Albert Townsend, county clerk, from voting, by being denied a ballot. Grovey added the state democratic convention in 1932 had restricted the right to vote at primaries of th(at party to white citizens. He brought suit against Townsend for $10 damages in a justice court and lost. The supreme court has declared invalid a Texas statute which prohibited negroes from voting at democratic elections. Since then the same results have been sought by action of the democratic party organization In the state.
