WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 16, 1935. THE TAMPA DAILY NEWS, Tampa, Texas PAGE THEEB ALLftED TURNS AWAY ALL CLEMENCY SEEKERS "THIS CURIOUS WORLD VJ±T AUSTIN. Jan. 1G. W)—Thn Texas legislature today awaited with interest the opening message of James V. Allred, containing the first suggested action to bring about the "new and fair deal" to .which thn incoming governor is pledged. .The brilliant ball in nonor of the new chief executive and Walter P. Wcodul, nontenant governor, lasted until far into the morning and neither house tried to hold a session before noon. Governor Allred said Ills first message to tho legislature! would be ready for transmittal this altrrnnon. Sources close to the governor indicated that the message would deal mainly with the unemployment re- 1'ef problem and creation of a state planning board to assist Texas in obtaining the maximum benefit from the national recovery program. The senate already had confirmed the appointments of two members of the new administration. They were Gerald C. Mann, former Southern Methodist football star, selected by Governor Allred as his secretary of state, and Carl Ncsbitt of ,Mlneola, named adjutant general with .authority to rroi'gantze the state Ranger force. Considerable interest \vr>s manifested in other appqintmpnts expected to be announced .soon, particularly in the sttite highway commissioner Governor Alircd is empowered to nnin:. Speaker Coke .S'.ovenson said he planned to. r.;in: ( uncR the house standing commif.ires today. Governor Allred opposed Stevenson's Kpeakcvship candidacy but they patched up their differences and the feeling generally among the representatives wa-s that the committees as choKcn by Ui? speaker would give the governor's program fair consideration. Th2 30-year- i;kl chief executive, who stayed away from his office yesterday afternoon so that he might be vilh his parents and other relatives, Ircklecl his problems in earne::i t:;rt:iy. His secretaries, Patrick Morcinnd. Edward Clark and C. E. Millar, already had installed themselves at their new posts. The governor's first public pronouncement dealt with his pardon policy. He told clemency seekers that it would be no use for them to see him until after they had talked with the pardon board. Be- forr. the governor issued his statement, his secretaries had received several cnlls requesting interviews on pardon matters. "All applications for executive clemency first must pass through the stata pardon board," Governor Allred said. Bui-ing the final days.of.Governor Miriam A. Ferguson's administration, her offices were crowded with clemency seekers. Many were not disappointed, as she held to the belief that .a liberal pardon policy was for the best interests of the state. When Governor and Mrs. Allred, their parents and other relatives went to the mansion yesterday for the inaugural dinner, they were surprised to find a bare cupboard. However, an aid quickly arranged an elaborate meal at a hotel. The re-tiring executive family had giv'n no public indication that it would'leave.a.meal prepared for the incoming governor. Mrs. Ferguson said such was not tradition. She said that to her knowledge it had occurred but once, when fovernor Governor James E. Ferguson succeed O. B. Colquitt, and resulted from personal friendship between Mrs. Ferguson and Mrs. Colciuitt. Chaff in Named Store Manager In Border City T. H. Chaff in, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. K. Chaffin Sr. and a formsr resident of Pampa,,has been named manager of the Montgomery Ward stove at Del Rio, which opened Saturday morning after being completely remodeled. The new .store manager has been with Montgomery Warn for five years. He joined the Pampa store when it was opened in 1929 and remained here until -a few months ago when he became merchandise in district 4, in which there were 11,stores. He went to .Del Rio two weeks ago and 'supervised the remodeling of the large slqre in that city. Mayor T. M. Johnson of Del Rio officially opened the .doors of the store at 9 o'clock Saturday morning. J/Ir. Chaffin wrote his parents that the store is a beautiful large one and that he is proud of it. _-«a WHEELER, COUNTY RECORDS OH filings for Tuesday, Jan. 15: MD.—C. H. Phillips to J.

JOHNSON Regional Economist Bureau of Business Research University of Texas The consumption of motor fuel is, like the production of crude oil .•cncentrated in a few countries. In 1930 the Americas consumed 77.9 per cent of the world's total of motor fuel, with more than 75 per cent being accounted for in the United States. But, as will be notec in a further paragraph, -the regions of large consumption in the Unitsc States differ considerably from the regions or states of large production of crude oil. Likewise, in Europe, the non-producing oil countries are the large consumers o; motor fuels. For instance, in 193( Europe consumed 17.7 per cent o; the world's total; but 13.6 per cen of that total was consumed in West- Central IJuropean countries, the United Kingdom leading, and followed by Prance and Germany whose combined consumption was then but slightly larger than that for the United Kingdom, alone. Russia and Rumania, the big producers in 1930 consumed less than 1 pei cent of the world total. In 1930 Australia consumed, more than double the amount of reported consumption in Russia. In 1930 the vast continent 'of Asia with half the population of the world consumed only 2 per cent of the world's motor fuel; in Asia the leading consuming country was Japan, which consumed only a .fourth as much as Canada did in "that year. Shifts, however, in consumption of motor fuel are occurring and may be looked upon as being very important in determining changes in the international markets for oil products in the near future. In 1933 the Americas consumed 75.5 per cent of the world's production and Europe consumed nearly 20 per cent; this gain in Europe was .spread generally over most of Europe, but was particularly noticeable in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Russia. And for 1934 authoritative data and estimates give 73 per cent of the world consumption of motor fuel to the United States, 20.2 pel- cent to Europe ( France and Germany combined having now 40 pet- cent more than the United Kingdom) with small gains in the Asiatic market. World consumption of motor fuel products has been steadily increasing;, the above data show that t}ie non-American market is expanding, With main expansion occurring in the major non-American market-West Central Europe. As is well known the major portion of the crude oil in ths United States is produced in three states, Texas, California, and Oklahoma. Of these states California alone in 1930 was also a large consumer of gasoline; in that year California ranked second to New York state, with Ohio third, followed in order by Illinois/, Perinsylvar.fa, Michii- BY MELVIN K. WHITELEATHER, "Copyright, 1D3B. by The- AsstwinlecrprpaB) SAARBRIIECKEN, Saar Basin Territory, Jan. 1C «P)_ Three thousand Jews are anxious to leave tho Saar, leading Jewish residents said today, as Saarlandrrs continued a noisy celebration over their decision to join nazi Germany. The holiday spirit of "liberation day" still gripped Saarbruecken. Groups of shouting and Kinging nazls thronged the streets. Police lorries occasionally passed jy, sirens shrilling, but officials reported conditions were orderly. Spokesmen lor the Jews said frankly, "we do not know which way to 'turn." Jewish business men said they were being boycotted and their children in school had already reported they felt their playmates were 'shunning them." Two hundred Hebrews who were active in the anti-nazi campaign arc likely to be the first to emigrate. A general movement is not expected for some weeks, but preparations already are being made and some already have gone. Jews constitute a very small proportion of the population, approximately one-half of 1 per cent of the Saar's 800,000 residents. Many of them are merchants. Berlin has agreed with Rome, it is understood not to apply the nazi Aryan clause until after a lapse of 12 months. Jews were advised to remain in the Saar by Bruno Weil, famous international lawyer and leader of the German Jewish organization. Weil, a former Saarlander, who came here from Berlin to vote, told them to stay "in the fatherland and see the battle through." Some 30 persons, most of them communists, were reported under arrest as nazis virtually took control of the territory. Adella May Dunning, 7-320 int. N E 'A section 49, block 24.

It is, however, when gasoline consumption is considered by sectional groups of states that the striking regional characteristics of the market in the United States is brought out. In 1930, the states of the Middle West, east of the Mississippi, consumed 24 per cent of the total gasoline used in this country in that year; the Middle Atlantic States—New York, Pennsylvania, iNew Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, with District of Columbia, West Virginia, and Delcware—followed close- ,ly with 23.5 per cent next came the Middle West .States, west of the Mississippi—Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas and Nebraska—with 11.7 per cent and the Pacific Coast .States closely following with 11.5 :\per cent*; atill further] \do\v(n iln rank cams the Southwestern group —T e x a s, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico—with 9.5 per cent. The large area of the Southwestern States used 8.5 per jent and the small,,area of New England, 6.8 per cent; the Northwestern and the Mountain groups together used only 4.4 per cent. The regional aspects of this grouping may e summarized by stating ;he fact that the Northeastern portion of the United States, west to ;he Mississippi, consumed in 1930 54.4 per cen of the total gasoline used in this country; and in 1933 ,his section had 56.4 per cent of the jasoline consumption of the nation. Outside of the Northeastern section only two states stand out as large :onsumers of gasoline California and Texas. receipts $23,401.95; $27,456.55; balance 1934, $998.16.

(Continued from page 1.) Dr. Condron complimented the city highly on its work for the children, and mentioned particularly the value of the "kid" bands which have been developed in the schools. District, county, and city officials were introduced as special guests of the occasion. Responding, Judge W. R. Ewing made a ringing request for public support of the courts and the officers, especially of the arresting- officers. He said that the reputation the city is getting because of liquor sales, gambling, and associated evils is not good and that a lax public opinion should be blamed. He pointed out that Governor James V. Allred has noted the widespread disrespect for law and proposed to do something about it. The judge, said that "the man who slips into the jury box" to prevent a conviction is the .greatest enemy of organized society. The criminals already have most of the "breaks" in Texas courts, he added. Roy Bourland opened the meeting and introduced Travis Lively as toastmaster. The big crowd was seated at four long.tables and the speakers' table. Good humor prevailed throughput. At the conclusion, on motion of Prank Poster, the group went on record offering their full support to the public officials in the discharge of the duties the office-holders are sworn to perform.
