Pampa within a few years will je an important point on a transcontinental Mexico '- to - Canada highway, it was pointed out today by George Briggs, who returned Sunday from a trip to Austin. Mr. Briggs and Sam Braswell of Clarendon accompanied a delegation to Austin, where the highway commission spoke very enthusiastically about the project and informally indicated' that the Clarendon - Turkey gap in the highway will be designated soon. The route from Pampa to Del Rio, on the Mexico line, will soon be designated all the way. Belief board crews are working on hard- surfacing of parts of the road. In Gray county, the road is known as highway 88, but elsewhere on the route it is 18 and 30. It is believed that a common designation for the Pampa.Del Bio road, will be made. An important gap in highway 88 is the gap from Pampa north across the Canadian river, and highway commissioners are well aware that a bridge must be constructed to make the route nationally important and to extend it on into Canada along routes well established much of the way. Right now, however, the highway commission is virtually without, funds and is handicapped further by the pending political appointment of a member. It is generally conceded that no Panhandle resident will be appointed. Powerful groups are attempting to se_ cure the re-appointment of Judge W. B. Ely of Abilene, but Governor Allred choice will until not near announce his the middle of next month. Mechanics And Garage Owners Meet Tomorrow A meeting of the Pampa chapter of the Texas Automotive Maintain- ance association, composed of independent garage owners s\nd mechanics, will be held at 8 o'clock tomorrow night in the county courtroom. Eddie Moore is president of the Pampa association. Other officers are J. C. Wilson, vice-president, and H. T. Hampton, secretary- treasurer. The Pampa cnapter was organized last week, when officers were elected. The meeting tomorrow night will be to discuss the workings of the organization, which is for the benefit of car owners as well as for independent garage owners. their families which presence impossible. A whistling wind made theJr last night made proper heating and ventilation impossible in most homes. Scores of persons said they slept poorly if at all. Taxis were kept busy and friends were called upon to furnish transportation, water and in at least one instance, meals this morning.

Andy Crocker, water superintendent for the City of Pampa, said that some meters had frozen but no mains were affected.

Tlie fire, which started in the engine room, had burst through the deck when the Vnlvci'de's operator font an appeal for aid at 2:10 a. m. (EST). The crew . was fighting desperately to keep the blaze from reaching the full cargo of fuel oil. Only two lifeboats were left, the operatrr said, and he did not know how much longer he could hold out. "Flames coming up on dock," he wirelessed. "Keeping headed into wind to keep fire from eargo. Burning fast." "Condition about same," he reported at 3:28 a. m. Tin Valverde sent its first SOS shortly after midnight, but the nearest ship to answer estimated it would not reach the scene before 5 a. m. tomorrow. Another ship which turned from its course said heavy winds and swell would prevent its arrival before Wednesday morning. Shipping men, however, believed the British tanker, Invei'arder, and the freighter, Lagarto, out of Glasgow, were much nearer the Valverde's isolated position in the Atlantic, halfway between Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Each" carries only one wireless operator, however, and he was off duty during the night. No mention was made in the Valverde's messages of the number of men in the crew, but it is a vessel of 4,463 gross tons and such craft usually carry at least 30. British sources believed, and the messages from the tanker indicated, that it was a British boat. Shipping resigters, however, list it as an Italian ship operated by the Lloyd Mediterranean line. .FIRE DESTROYS COTTAGE Pampa firemen battled piercing cold as well as flames when fire partially destroyed the negro servants' quarters at the rear of 115 North West street at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Cause of the fire is not known. The building was in flames when the fire iruck arrived. A line of hose was strung and the fire was soon under control.

Jan. 21.— A ffiivrnimenl accountant testified today Mr. and Mrs. Bruno Ricfo.ird HflUp!imnin's assets swelled $14,48fi after the futile sr>0,000 ransom was paid for baby Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. The state, which accuses Hauptmann of kidnaping and murdering the baby, also brought, to a driveway near the court, ready to show to the jury if the court permits, the automobile in which Hauptmann was alleged to have been seen near the Lindbergh home on the day of the kidnaping, March 1, 1932. One witness has testified he saw a ladder In the automobile. The state also announced itself ready to refute any further attempt on the part of the defense to implicate the dead German furrier. Isador Pisch, in the kidnaping and murder or collection of the ransom. A New York attorney, Albert D. Kurtz, the prosecutors said, has a diary showing he and Fisch were together the day of the kidnaping. Hauptmann claimed on his arrest that $14,600 ransom money found in his garage had been given to him by Fisch for safe-keeping. A defense announcement on the same point was to the effect it had information Fisch used the name of "John" when he went back to Germany to die of tuberculosis. A woman giving this information, Mrs..

Mooney must remain in San Quentln penitentiary.. His latest effort to escape serving the remainder of his life sentence for complicity in the 1916 San Francisco preparedness day parade bombing failed today when the supreme court refused to review the case. The 51-year-old convict, who has waged an 18-year campaign for freedom, asked the court to permit him to file habeas corpus 'proceedings, thus compelling California to defend its action in keeping him imprisoned. In asking a review, Mooney contended he had been sent to prison on perjured evidence following the death of 10 persons and the injury of 44 in the bombing. U. S. Webb, state attorney general, asserted that under present laws California could not reopen the case and that Mooney's only avenue of relief was through an amendment of the laws by the legislature or a pardon by the governor. Four governors have refused to pardon Mooney. The present executive, Frank F. Merriam, has had the case before him awaiting the supreme court ruling.

Agitation For Publicity On Legislators Employment Is Already Under Way. AUSTIN, Jan. 21 (/P)—The Texas iit'iiatc today received a challenge from the house of representatives to reveal publicly their sources of income. • A resolution adopted b the house last week constituted the challenge. Representatives asked adoption by the senate of a proposal to form a joint committee to prepare a questionnaire, to which each member would answer under oath, concerning his employment and income. Under senate rules, the resolution would be referred to a committee before floor consideration, although suspension of the rule and immediate action on it was possible. Two years ago the house issued a like challenge to the senate, which disregarded it. Agitation for publicity on employment of legislators came to the fore in the senate even before this session started however. It was discussed at length in a caucus which ended without- definite action. Preliminary agitation, however, likely will force the issue to a floor fight and a test vote this session. The house of representatives, meanwhile, planned to pass finally the first two bills recommended by Governor James V. Allred which the senate had approved. They would re-establish special district courts in Smith and Busk counties made necessary by extensive litigation resulting from the East Texas oil field. They were urged by ithe governpr, also, to faoilit%te disposition pf the state's oil proration suits. LATE KANSAS CITY, Jan. 21 (IP)— The highest price paid for cattle here since January, 1931, was recorded today when two loads of prime quality Hereford steers sold for $12 a hundred pounds. The top a year ago was $7. AUSTIN, Jan. 21 M 3 )—The senate today adopted a house resolution to make effective immediately a bill passed by the- preceding special session to remit penalties and interest on delinquent taxes. The Senate amended the resolution to provide it should not be construed to remit penalties and interest after June 30 and to declare a policy against further remissions. The act would have been effective February 9 without the resolution. The house, however, must concur in the amendment. AUSTIN, an. 21. (/P>—Ernest O. Thompson, chairman of the Texas railroad commission, said today this state probably would not receive an increase In oil production next mouth because of a court decision here Saturday permitting the movement of a largo quantity of oil products on which tenders had been refused.

UP)— Eight miners 'were killed, several are reported missing; and two score were overcome today by poison fumes in a gas explosion in the Gil- bertou mine,, of the Philadelphia and Reading- Coal and Iron company. Several miners were badly burned in the flash that shot through a rock gangway on the "sixth level," about 1,100 feet below ground and 1,000 feet from the shaft entrance. Physicians said few of the men overcame are in critical condition. Mine officials said about 69 men were at work on the sixth level, and a like number on the fifth. The deadly "after damp" spread through crevices into the fourth level, where scores of other miners were engaged, and men working in the Draper mine, a mile away, said they felt the poison gas. AUSTIN, Jan. 21. (AP) — The Te.vr-s house today passed and sent to Governor James V. AU- rcd two senate bills to re-establish special district courts in Smith and Rusk counties to bundle litigation of the East Texas oil field. Governor Allred requested immediate passage of the legislation. Terms of the special district courts, established at the last regular session of the legislature, expired last November. Each court had more than 1,000 oases on its docket, including scores of suits filed by the attorney- general's department to enforce oil conservation orders of the Texas railroad commission. Bills have Ben, prepared to establish two additional courts in Gregg county, also in the oil field. Oiie would be permanent and the other would expire after four years. Both bills sent the governor received enough votes in each house to -become effective immediately. . Persons appearing before house committees to support or oppose legislation would be placed under oath under a resolution offered by Representative Cecil Lotief of Cross Plains and referred to the rules committee. The resolution's preamble stated that in some instances in the past "false arid misleading statements" had been made before committees. The hoase adopted a resolution ad- base its apportionment of rice acreage on the same basis as cotton, corn and wheat allotments. • : O.

Taxes on machines using pennies would be half. In addition each five cent machine would be assessed an annual license of $2.50 and penny machines $1. Senator Weaver Moore of Houston proposed constitutional amend, merits increasing the salaries of the overnor from $4.000 to $12,000 annually; the attorney general from $4,000 to $10,000; the comptroller, treasurer and land commissioner, from $2,500 to $6,000 and the secretary of state from $2,000 to $6,000. The Senate tax program committee introduced a bill to effectuate its recommendations for the collection of delinquent taxes. Senator Arthur P. Duggan of Littlefield estimated it would bring about collection of approximately $8,000,000 in the next two years, sufficient to care for the state's deficit, The bill would provide for ap- pointmnet by county commissioners courts of deputy delinquent tax liens to persons loaning money for payment of taxes; speedy sale of property for taxes wth notice by pubV,catlon and mail (in^tfead of court suits, and a two year equity of redemption period.
