Texas has a lot of young new dealers in the legislature. The governor is only 36. Now we'll see what the ycunger generation can do in this haywire world. But, after all, this region should look more favorably oil 1 a brain trust than a grain trust. We need rain and snow, it is true, but you can't really stay mad at a climate which produces more than 300 sunshiny days a year, Some snowy days would enable our research department to learn what a golf fiend does when he can't chase the little ball Giver fairway and rough. Musing of the moment: Pampa churchmen and friends will dine together tonight. Men of the churches are potentially the most powerful in any community in influence. Actually, as a group they are usually disorganized and of ten competitive ,in influence . . . It should not be so. Churchmen ought to stand for something in an effective way. The modern church movement, though gusty and gregarious,' lacks coordination and a real social program. . . . The spirit of. Christ isn't relatively as strong as the'organization technique which churches since His time have developed. You can explain many a human frailty- crime; war, poverty—by expanding that statement. . . . Talking it over should help. Brevitorials T EGISLATURES OP the last several state administrations have as a whole been far from brilliant. Repeated special sessions have wrestled with public problems. Politics and strife have been distressingly muddling. Lobbying has blocked much legislation, good and bad and aroused statewide resentment. It is not surprising, therefore, that the turnover in the legislative halls has baen astonishing. In this complex age. law-making ability is not to be confused with the ability to get on the stump and rehash the evils which admittedly plague Texans. Yet, because the ins are not in a strong positions politically—they can't make good their fantastic promises—and because many of them lose their zeal for reform while partaking of the hospitality of lobbyists, the people of this state often change their representatives. CO IT WAS LAST year. And, as ° Dale Miller points out in the Texas Weekly, the legislature now in session is the youngest and most inexperienced in many years. More than half its membership is under 40 years of age and 30 members are under 30 years of age. There are only 15 members over 60 years pld find but one beyond 70. Even the senate, traditionally more mature than the house, has two-thirds of Us membership under 50 years of agp. Officers of the legislature are young. Governor Allred Is the youngest governor in the country. His appointees, for the most part, are young men as we think of office holding. rpHOSE WHO view with alarm could find much to get excited about without using telescopes. It is a fact of some significance, however, that the movement towaMd younger men in public life is statewide and nationwide. It is natural to turn toward youth for a new deal. And youth, facing economic difficulties which are at least thought-provoking, can be expected to lean toward what is new and promising in social legislation. . . . The oldsters will have their turn. They may be back in the saddle when the inevitable mistakes of inexperienced lawmakers are counted. But it is the mistake of the veterans to look backward, hoping for a return of the older and easier days., These may return, briefly, but civilization has come a long way and many of its pioneering paths cannot again be trod. rpHESE OBSERVATIONS do not lead us to ignore the dangers which go with inexperience aryd with frequent turnovers of public men. Well-intentioned thoueh many of th,e new legislators are, they cannot but improve with age and experience. If their motives are clean and their minds Keen, there will be no reasion to remote them two years 1 See COLUMN, Page 5~~ SAYS CONGRESS OUGHT TO STOP 'DAMNABLE WASTE IN TEXAS' WASHINGTON, Jan. 15. (AP)— Indications that he would press for a broader legislative program for federal oil control than restoration of power to regulate interstate shipments was given today by Secretary Ickes, the oil administrator. Asked at a press conference his opinion of the bill offered by Senator Connally (D.-Tex.) to reenact section 9-C of the recovery act in p. form that is satisfactory to the supreme court, Ickes replied that he had not seen the measure. "I think," , he added, "it ought to be made broad enough for the federal government to eliminate that damnable waste In natural gas that's going on in Texas. "From what I hear, people in Texas themselves are in favor of that. People in the industry, people who could bum gas in their homes are beginning to take strong exceptions to this waste. "There is no prospect of permanent control in the absence of an effective federal statute." Ickes said 'a committee investigating the effection of section 9-C and the oil code on small operators svould present its 'recommendations within a little more than two weeks. The committee, appointed last week from members of the industry not in the oil administration, began its study after a conference with Ickes on Saturday. Ickes repeated a prediction that production of "hot)'' oil (In excess of - state quotas) would be held down in Texas until after congress adjourned in <th«. hope of preyent- ing additional federal regulation. .«. Fred Hobart Is New Cattlemen's Vice-President Fred Hobart of Canadian, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Hobart of Pampa, was elected vice-president of the American National Cattlemen's association at its convention in Rapid City, 8, D. Mr. Hobart and son returned home last night. A general spirit of optimism pervaded the convention, although arsat concern was expressed over the continued drouth. Little mois- ti.'re has fallen over range lands this winter. The southwest was renorted In better condition than other areas. One of the resolutions passed by the cattlemen and of great interest to Texas and New Mexico was that asking that the government lift the $50,000 limit now set as the maximum loan the government agencies can make to cowmen. The resolution will, fce presented by P. E. Mollin, secretary. It was revealed that since the 1933 convention, the government lV»s purchased more than $8,000,000 rattle 1 from the cowmen as a drouth relief measure. Through these efforts, most of the low grade cattle in the country have been nurrhased, leaving the market open for high erade beef. The returning cattlemen said thev received wonderful receptions at the convention. The special train was met at Ouster and delegafes token to the convention city through the Black mountains, one of the scenic spots of the nation. JOHNSTON VISITS HERE A. F.

J., Jan. 15. «P)—The dead Isador Fisch came infcrcntially into the .murder trial of Bruno Richard Hauptmann again today as his brother and two sisters arrived from Germany to combat insinuations against him. Pincus, Hancah and Czcrna Fisch, and a nurse described as Minna Stegnitiz, arrived on the He de France with the New York detective, Arthur Johnson. Hauptmann, on trial for Ms life as the accused kidnaper and murderer of baby Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr., has claimed that Fisch gave him for safekeeping the Lindbergh ransom money which 'was found in his Bronx garage. The identities of the four persons in the party brought back by Detective Arthur Johnson, of the New York police department, did not become known until a few hours after they had been hurried from the liner aboard a special cutter to the Brooklyn shore and whisked away in an alutomobile, presumably directly to Flemington, N. J. As the liner crept into quarantine, the U. S. Coast Guard cutter Raritan trailed the vessel and pulled alongside as the ship dropped anchor. A special immigration officer and customs inspector hurried aboard, hastily passed the baggage and passports and released the witnesses immediately. The Raritan then cast off and set a course for Brooklyn. FLEMINGTON, N. J., Jan. 15 (JP) — The prosecution in the Hauptmann murder trial planned to introduce another "surprise" witness today to break the testimony of handwriting expert;!. State attorneys declined -to reveal the identity of the witness, other than to say that he came from Cincinnati and would provide connecting Information in the development of the case against Bruno Richard Hauptmann, "essential but not particularly startling." NEW YORK, Jan. 15 (#)—The New York Time:, today prints the following from Flemington, N. J.: "Rumors that Bruno Richard Hauptmann has confessed or is going to confess . . . were in circulation, but could not be confirmed. "In prosecution circles the belief was expressed that the accused may confess because of the weight of evidence that the state has presented . . . The state has no intention of making any deal with Hauptmann during the trial, It was said, but a confession naming other persons might be considered after a verdict is returned. "Edward J. Reilly and C. Lloyd Fisher of defense counsel emphatically denied the rumors." YORK, Pa,, Jan. 15. (/P)—Arthur P. Myers, handwriting expert called into consultation at the trial of Bruno Richard Hauptmann for the Lindbergh slaying, said today he and an associate had been unable to testify in Hauptmajuv's defense. Myers and his associate, Samuel C. Malone who maintain offices at Baltimore, went to Plemington, N. J., last Friday for a conference with Edward J. Reilly. Chief of Hauptmann's defense counsel. He said they compared the Lindbergh ransom notes with speciments of Hauptmann's writing, and then declined to testify for the defense. , "The only reason we are not testifying," he said, "is that our findings were not favorable to the defense." FLEMINGTON, N. J., Jan. 15 (IP)-' The defense today again See HAUPTMANN, Page 8 T n COURT ACTION CALLED BIG ACHIEVEMENT OF LAST YEAR Large savings made by the Gray county commissioners court through purchase of outstanding bonds to stop interest payments are cited in tho annual report of County Auditor R. C. Wilson as a major achievement during 1934. Mr. Wilson, pointing out that the county has much invested in highway machinery and spends a huge sum each year on its roads, suggests that the court study the possibility of setting up a county highway department as an economy measure- His report contains many pages of figures, comparisons, and debt schedules, and points out that the relief problem, if passed back to the local authorities by state and federal governments, may well become the most difficult question of 1935. His report follows: We submit herewith detailed report of receipts and disbursements of the various funds of Gray county for the year ending December 31, 1934, together with comparisons and statements as set out in the index. You will note that road and bridge expenditures for 1934 were materially higher than for the preceding year. The principal cause of the increase was replacement of equipment, construction of the county line bridge over McClelland creek, acquisition of right-of-way and construction of the road from the Pampa-McLean road to the county line. Expenditures for machinery amounted to $39,003.24 and the bridge, right-of-way and road herein referred to cost approximately $21,000. On page 8 will be found a consolidated statement of local road funds. Over a period of six years the average annual expenditures of local road funds have been a little less' than $120,000. (This does not include relief expenditures for work done under the direction of county commissioners, which has, according to the local relief office, amounted to $11,954.30 during the period beginning November 15, 1933 and ending December 27, 1934.) We have an undetermined mileage of local roads, seven heavy tractors, five malntainers, eleven graders, two trucks, two work cars, plows, scrapers, and numerous smaller items of equipment. With due consideration of the scope of operations, we believe the creation of a county highway department would be practical and desirable. The general laws of Texas do not seem to provide for county highway departments but a number of counties have special road laws making this possible, and we respectfully urge the court to make an exhaustive study of the matter to determine See AUDITOR, Page 8 Wheat Drops 2 To 3cA Bushel CHICAGO, Jan. 15. (IP)— Wheat and corn prices slumped suddenly around noon today after Winnipeg quotations dropped to the minimums fixed by the Canadian government. Wheat was off 2 to 3 cents a bushel and corn was 1% to 2V4 cents lower than yesterday's close. Other grain marts also reflected Winnipeg's weakness.

J., court, waiting to testify In the Hauptmann trial. He is William Allen, Trenton truck driver's helper, who made the ghastly find five miles from the Lindbergh home.

Doollttle, noted speed flier, established a new transcontinental record for transport airplanes today, touching his wheel'! at Floyd Bennett airport, New York, 11 hours 59 minutes after his takeoff at Los Angeles. DoolitUe was timed at Floyd Bennett field at 8:28 a. m. (E. S. T.) and eight and one-half minutes later he set the low-winged transport monoplane down at Newark airport. Although previous transcontinental speed flights had ended here, Doolittle's time at the New York field was considered for record purposes. His time of 11 hours 59 minutes broke by minutes the mark set last November 8 by Eddie Rickenbacker when he flew from Los Angeles to Newark in 12 hours, 3 minutes, and 50 seconds. Looking tired but happy, the f\y- ing major was greeted here by Mayor Meyer C. Ellenstein. Accompanying the aviator was Mrs. Doolittle and an oil company official. . Doolittle's mark was made despite, the fact that he flew off his course. Doolittle said the ship, a Vultee transport, powered by a 735 horsepower Wright Cyclone engine, functioned perfectly all the way, enabling him to .average 217 miles an hour for the approximately 2\GOQ- mile trip.

Allred, 36, attorney general of Texas the past four years, today was inaugurated governor (o succeed Mrs. Miriam A. Ferguson. In a firm voice, Allred started repeating the oath of office at 12:22 p. m. The oath previously had been administered to the new 1'eutenant governor, Walter F. Woodul of Houston, who promised co-operation with the incoming governor and the legislature. The sun, which had been behind threatening clouds all morning, came out brightfe' two minutes before the new governor was sworn in. Mrs. Ferguson and her husband, political figures for 20 years, played r-nly a minor part in the inauguration. They occupied positions in the rear of Allreti and Woodul and were not on to sneak. Allred was the official program presented by Sens' tor LVbcrry of Bogata. Tills was does not typify Texas. The reports p departure from the usual inaug- being customary ural routine, it for the retiring governor to present her successor to the crowd. Allred smiled broadly as he rose to take the oath of office. He repeated the long oath in a clear, ringing voice that delnanded the attention of the crowd. The governor was wildly cheered as he rose to take the oath and before the first cannon was fired. Although the Fergusons drew a minor role they observed the proceedings with interest. It was the fouith time they have left the governor's office, "Farmer Jim" and Mrs. Ferguson each having been elected, for two terms. Since Ferguson entered politics in 1914 he has dominated the Texas picture. Crowd Is Huge A crowd estimated at 10,000 witnessed the inauguration from every vantage" point available. The ceremony was held at the south entrance of the maiestic capitol. Predicting a "new cycle of progress,'/ Allred expressed high optimism over the future and pledged his efforts to take thousands off relief and place them in gainful employment. "This great state, with its unbounded resources can lead the nation in its recovery march," he stated, "We can, we must, restore opportunity, vitality and hope to our distressed people'. Charity is a poor substitute for justice." Scores of telegrams wishing Allred a successful administration TO CO-ORDINATE STATE PROGRAM WITH FEDERAL AUSTIN, Jan. 15 /XP)—Governor James V. Allred in his Inaugural address today pledged his administration to close co-operation with the national government in its recovery program and to rigid enforcement of the laws of the state. Addressing massed thousands immediately after he took the oath of office In succession to Miriam A. Ferguson, Mr. Allred declared Texas' main problems were of recovery, but its 6,000,000 people, with their great natural resources, had nothing to fear and were ready for a "new cycle of progress." He asserted he proposed to co-ordinate the state relief program with that of the federal government by public works projects, old age pensions, soil erosion prevention and "in every other worth while manner." To combat economic conditions, he bespoke the co-operation of the executive and the legislature and all state departments. Hits at Crime In ringing 1 phrases Mr. Allred declared "gangsters, bandits, thugs and thieves" had no place "in the clean life of Texas needs," and he would perform his duty under the constitution to cause the laws to be faithfully executed. "No citizenship can be happy, no benefits in government can be worth while in a state where that government is not respected," the governor stated. "Perhaps the saddest feature of the past few years in Texas, even sadder than that of relief rolls, Is the wholesale flouting of the law by a dangerous minority which of the senate investigating committee contain startling revelations of conditions which bring shame to every true Texan. "Primarily it is the duty of local officers to enforce the law. As governor of Texas it is my duty under the constitution to 'cause the laws to be faithfully executed.' I am gb- ojng to perform that duty and I want you, my friends, to call upon your local officers to enforce the law, Lauds FDR, Wilson "If they fail to do so, I want you and your representatives and senators to back me up in the performance of my duty. I pledge the good officers and decent citizenship : of Texas that once these law violators are behind prison doors they will receive clemency only when entitled to it, based on merit, and merit alone. "The people have a right to change any law by a majority vote. I have no fear of any change tha people of Texas may make or approve. But, so long as laws are on our statute books, tney must be enforced." At the outset of his address Mr. Roosevelt Woodrow See ALLRED, Page 8 Pampans Attend LeFors Auction And Box Supper Donations of merchandise by merchants of Pampa and LeFors were auctioned before the' boxes at the Methodist church in LeFors last night. Several Pampans attended the meeting. Frank Foster acted as auctioneer in an excellent manner. The boxes and merchandise brought goodi prices, with more than $80 realized. Ladies of the church served coffee when the boxes were opened. The Rev. Lloyd Jones, pastor of the church, entertained with numbers on his musical saw. The trip was sponsored by the good will committees of the two Fampa chambers of commerce. Those attending from Pampa were Mr. arid Mrs. F. E. Leech and their guest, T. M. Cain of Dallas, George W. Briggs, Mr. Foster, Paul Hill, and Harry E. Hoare of the NEWS staff. Allred lauded President and the late President Wilson, saying he trusted "we may be able to inaugurate here today the forthright policy in Texas of 'open covenants, openly arrived at,' between the people, the legislature and the executive department." "I thank God I am not standing before you in times as distressful as those under which the president came into national power," he said. "Under his leadership, this union of states has steadily gone forward . . . I pledge you that this administration will continue to go forward with President Roosevelt whenever our state rights and duties may hisr- monize with the objectives of the national administration." He deplored the fact that "too many of our citizens are on relief roll(s, and fear clutches at the hearts of even those fortunate enough to be employed." Cites Pioneers Nevertheless, he said, "our six million people with billions of dollars of wealth in oil, cotton, timber, cattle, and natural resources should have nothing to fear today."
