SAN A:?TONIO, Jnn. 15 (Sp)— The task of dividing $400,000 among some 30 or 40 communities, seeking allocations for historic celebrations In connection with the 1936 Texas Centennial observance, appears to confront the historic planning committee of the Texas Centennial Commission as a result of developments at a session of that body.held here. Representatives of Houston, Ooliad, Huntsville, Columbus, Gonzales, Nacogdoches, Richmond, Mexia, San Augustine, San Felipe and Mexia presented recommendations in behalf of their respective communities, but there are some forty applications for allocations on file with the committee. Many communities , which had given notice that they would make requests for shares of the fund, have not done so, although they had been asked to make their wants known at once. Some it is believed are contemplating presenting their pleas directly to the Legislature, through their respective Senators and Representatives. With the Centennial Commission proposing to ask only $3,000,000 as the extent of state participation in the Centennial project, the announced program involves allocation of $1,250,000 to the central exposition for buildings and furnishings, $750,000 for advertising and publicity for the Centennial celebrations generally and $1,000,000 for secondary celebrations throughout the state. Of this latter amount, it seems tacitly conceded that $300,000 each should be allocated to Houston and San Antonio to assist those cities in arranging their participation in the statewide celebration, which would leave only $400,000 to be divided among other cities and towns with historical backgrounds incident to the achievement of Texas' independence. Thjis incited speakers at the session, to recall that Jesse Jones, chairman of the reconstruction finance corporation, in a recent address had urged 'that $5,000,000 should be the minimum amount to be appropriated by the state for Centennial purposes and that other citizens of the state have urged that even larger amounts were absolutely essential. R. B. Morris, state president of the Sons of the Republic ofTexas, presented the plea of a Houston and Harris county Centennial committee, that $300,000 be. allotted as a minimum to erect a state memorial structure on the San Jacinto battleground. Citizens of Houston, he said, would raise additional funds for historic pageantry and the celebration. J. A. White of Goliad presented a request of that city for consideration, but asserted that Goliad did not take the attitude of "begging on its knees for a sum of money." Goliad citizens, he said, felt that the Goliad State Park, marking the site of the execution of Pannin's men, the Missions Espiritu Santo and La' Bahia, belong to all of Texas and that the state should accord them a ranking place in its Centennial plans. E. E. Irwin presented the proposal of Columbus that a $40,000 memorial be erected there to commemorate the founding of the town in 1822 by.Stephen P. Austin and the holding of the first court in Texas there in 1837 by Judge "Three-Legged Willie" Williamson, under a spreading live-oak tree which still stands. R. A. Scott offered Richmond's plea that a memorial hall be erected there in honor of Mirabeau B. Lamar, "father of the public school system of Texas;" Ross Boothe, Gcnzales' request for proper recognition of the town where the "first shot was fired in the Texas Revolution;" Jake Stubbs, Mexia's for $40,000 for restoration of Fort Parker scene of a Comanche massacre of citi2ens in 1836; Miss Adina de Zavala, San Augustine's for proper marking of historic shrines in that vicinity. _ T Others heard were: Dr. T. L. Clark, Huntsville; Phil L. Sanders, Naccgdoches; Hugo Fi-eund, West; Mrs. Eugene T. Harris and Mrs. I. B McFarland, Houston, and Mrs. Percy V. Pennybacker, Austin. NEW GOVERNOR, HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 15 f/P)— With a brilliant display of political pageantry, Pennsylvania's government passed today into democratic • hands after almost half a century of republican rule. The "new deal victory of last November, which upset the once powerful organization of Quay and Penrose, was crowned in a colorful inauguration of George H. Earle, former minister to Austria, as governor^ NEIGHBORS NO BETTER Little change in the condition of Arthur Neighbors, injured in an oil field accident yesterday morning, was reported this morning.

(/!»)—The United Elates and Italy have agreed to negotiate a bi-lateral trade treaty, it was announced today following the receipt of official dispatches from Washington. The agreement was reached in principle after preliminary negotiations conducted in the United States by Augusto Rosso, . the Italian ambassador, picture-making season is over.

Both the photoflood and photoflash are available at most electrical or photo supply shops at very low prices. The photoflood lamp, which gives an excep- and out. We shall have much to sny about indoor pictures. For a starter, let's talk about silhouettes—those pictures in which the figures are solid black on a white background, much like the scissor pictures you see at fairs. 'With silhouettes, even more than with ordinary snaps, it is vital that the pictures tell their own story. (Unless, of course, you want simply a profile portrait.) For you have only outlines to work with, unsupported by perspective or detail. The first essential of silhouette pictures Is a perfectly flat background, devoid of detail. And the easiest way to obtain such a background is to stretch a bed sheet across a broad • doorway between two rooms. It's important that the sheet be tacked up so that all creases and wrinkles are eliminated. To light up this background, a strong light must be put in back of it, about five feet away, either centered or placed directly back of the major feature of the picture. You h,ave a wide choice of lamps. You can use a couple of ordinary, 60-watt In front of the sheet (on the side away from the lamp). Plant your camera on a tripod or table so that it is directly on an imaginary line drawn from the lamp, through the sheet and through the subject. The diagram above explains the layout In the simplest way. When tile picture is taken, the light shining through the sheet should be the only light in either of the rooms. About exposures. If you use the two 60-watt lamps, you will need an exposure of about 10 seconds, with the lens well opened; with a photoflood, a couple of seconds will suffice. Using the photoflash, set the shutter at "time," turn out all lights, open the shutter, flash the flashbulb (which gives only an instant's vivid light), close the shutter—and there you are. A little practice with silhouettes is worth volumes of instruction. Gcod silhouettes make excellent material for greeting cards, boook plates, place cards and so on. In making- them, you can call all your ingenuity and inventiveness into play. (Continued Irom cage 1.) hence because they have not blotted out the pyramided mistakes of decades. The new men should be given a chance to learn. And, to quota Mr. Miller again: "Experience of the membership seems to be more than balanced by an enthusiasm and genuine concern for the state's welfare, and among many of the younger legislators there is an abundance of college training and a perspective and problems of government and political philosophy which transcends the narrow confines of practical politics. There is doubtless more opportunity for intelligence to accumulate experience than for mere experience to accumulate intelligence." QUR POLITICAL primer: The federal constitution provides that a member of the TJ. S. house of representatives must have attained the age of 25, have been a citizen of the United States for seven years, and be an inhabitant of the state in which he is elected. In practice, he is a resident of the district he represents as a rule, but that is not a constitutional requirement. A United States senator must have attained the age of 30, have been a citizen of the United States for nine years, and be an inhabitant of the state which elects him. Both senators and representatives take the same oath of office. In the senate the vice-president administers the oath of newly-elected senators in the well of the chamber, after their names have been called by the clerk and they have been escorted before him on the arms of colleagues. In the house the speaker administers the oath to the entire membership en masse. It is as follows: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God." tation lav Now MADRAS, Mexico, Jan. 15 (/?}— Federal Judge Medina Ma- unuuu tooay ruled in favor of owners cf radio station "XER" >>i n law suit brought by the Mexican treasury department demanding payment of fines totaling 600,000 pesos. The 150,000 watt station, located at Villa Acuna, Mexico, across the Rio Grande from Del Rio, Texas, formerly was operated by Dr. John R. Brinkley, of Milford, Kansas. The lawsuit asked payment of fines assessed by the federal health department of Mexico. Judge Machado's decree, read in federal district court here at conclusion of the case's trial, declared that the Mexican government would violate articles 14 and 16 of the federal constitution if it collected fines from the radio company that now owns the station. Dr. Brinkley, it was revealed by defense attorney Agustin Barrera, lost control of the station last March 29, when he sold it to a group of business men known as the "Compania Mexicano Kadio Difusora Pronterizo S. A." The powerful stailon had been closed down by government order since last June. It may not resume broadcasts. .•»» THOMPSON FOR SMITH AUSTIN, Jan. 15. (#>)—II O.
