THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas MONDAY EVENING, JAtttJA&Y 21, 1935. :. , t , .... . =.... - ~- .... _^^A«tfI -•- -dfe-i," ... r . _,„ EDITORIAL WHAT VALUE OF NEW HIGHWAY? Hall county is about to make a bid for anothfer high- Way. The new route runs frbm Clarendon to Turkey, connecting the enda of two roads that now come into the •cities and stop there, and crossing the Memphis-Lake- vtew paved route just north of Red river. County Judge Jim "Vallance and other representatives from Memphis, Turkey and Clarendon are in Austin to present the proposed plans to the Texas Highway commission. -.1 If the highway is secured it will mean another feather in Hall county's cap. It would,- give the county a weave of highways that lead in every direction, with the exception of one running' to the east from Memphis to Wellington. True, the Clarendon-Turkey route rather cuts Memphis out of the picture, but whatever it'adds to the county will indirectly bear fruits for Memphis. But, as far as that goes, in such matters no one town should be considered, but the interests of tho territory as a whole should come first. Let's look at the highway map of Hall county for a moment. First in importance is Highway 5, which gives the territory its main outlets down state and onto the'-north plains and into Colorado. The next route connects Highway 5 at Estelline and, passing through Turkey, leads onto the south plains and into southern New Mfexico. The third route goes from Memphis through L'akeview and ends at Mulberry creek. The fourth runs south from Turkey. This leaves two direction unopened by state roads, and we should do everything in our power to open them up. A route from Memphis to Wellington would open an entrance into southern Oklahoma. The other important route is the one mentioned above—fron; Turkey to Clarendon, connecting the Memphis-Lakeview pavement. If we had these highwa3 r s, the only thing we need be interested in then is the surfacing and improving of the routes. With this completed, Hall county would be served-by one of the finest highway nets in the Panhandle.— Memphis Democrat. " . THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON.—Secretary Ickes swore softly as he read the government's brief in its Parker Dam injunction suit against the state of Arizona. Read the brief and you'll see why. Some years ago a group of progressives in Congress, led by Senator Hiram Johnson of California, won a long, grim fight against the "power trust" for government construction of a huge power project on the Colorado river. They always refered to the project as Boulder Dam. Then a secretary of interior named Ray Lyman Wilbur, to their intense disgust, named the thing after a friend of his whom they heartily disliked. Wilbur designated it as "Hoover Dam." Most senators went right on calling it '"Boulder" and you could call it one thing or the other for quite a while until a change of administration occurred and Mr. Ickes, not long after he succeeded Wilbur, announced it was going to be "Boulder," not "Hoover." But recently the governor of Arizona sent the state's army "and navy—consisting of one bumboat on .the Colorado—to drive federal engineers from their work on Parker Dam, a PWA project closely related to the larger development. .. And the federal government has just sued before the supreme court to enjoin Arizona from interference. In its brief, signed by Attorney General Cummings and Solicitor General Biggs, Ickes found in the enumeration of Parker Dam purposes:. "... regulating the water discharged at Hoover ,(Bculder) Dam, in such manner as to enable more effective use of said Boulder Dam and for other public purposes." After which, the brief consistently refers to the dam as "Hoover (Boulder) Dam." If it had only said "Boulder ( (Hoover) Dam," Ickes wouldn't be quite so sore. * * * * The old game of rewarding the good little boys and punishing the bad one still goes on in 1 congress. A couple of stray incidents will tell you how it is: Senator Sherman Minton of Indiana, a new- man, is opposed to the quick cash bonus payoff. He shows, every sigh of being "regular" for the administration, which hopes he can be especially helpful. The other day Minton had a telephone call from the White House, asking how he would like to address the Dutchess County Association of New York, a highhat organization of which Roosevelt is a member and which had invited the president to speak. Flattered, Minton said he would. Soon he had a letter from the association president, saying the White House had designated Minton to speak "for the administration." That sort of thing usually makes a new senator feel good, as Roosevelt and Secretary Louis Howe well know. * * * * You have to get used to almost anything-—good and bad—in this administration, but plenty of eyebrowa ars raised at the spectacle of Senator Joe Guffey, political boss of Pennsylvania, giving instructions to House leaders about the favors or lemons he wants handed to demo- OJfatic members of his state's house delegation. •f It's no new revelation here that Guffey ig an even cruder political manipulator than Jim Farley himself, But now that he is here as a senator and operating so openly, it's a fair bet that someone, one of these days, will be knocking his ears down. Amelia Earhart left her husband in Hawaii and flew to San Francisco to get home before him and prepare his dinner. The mistake other Pacific flyers made was to fly from the United States, and all the while it has been such an easy mark. * .i* * . * The wonder is that the Saar problem has been solved Without getting Washington to §jtpd a batalion of marines over there. -* - •: * * * * Tammany Hall had nothjng to do with the voting in the Saar, so there will be no recount. •»**'', f Auto dealers first try to interest prospects in sream- and then divert their interest to (Jotted lines. TEXAS HISTORY Brushing Up on Facts You Ought to Recall Colonists in Texas studied the new Mexican colonization law of April 6, 1830 w'lth varied JCntl- ments. Some of them thought it of little consequence. Many of the leaders were keenly indignant over the terms, thinking the Government showed a lack cf confluence in them as well as distrust. Stephen F. Austin was upset over the laws, and he wrote immediately to General Teran. The new law required that hPiice- ftrth there would be no immigration into Texas that was not authorized; there would be a close checkup to see that there was no smuggling into Texas ports, and military colonization would begin at once. The authorized colonization was the chief sore spot among Texans. Stephen F. Austin wrote "My objects in coming to Texas were sound and pure, most pure. I have la- sored in good faith. It has been ihe idol of my ambition to wrest this country from th= wilderness and to add by that means to the prosperity, the wealth, and moral and physical resources of the republic which I have adopted for ny country." He further explained ;hnt Mexico's Interests had always n first, and that he had been faithful and loynl to that government. The summer following the enactment of the law was a restless one. Wilitia were posted at San An- tonio and Nacogdoches, the mouth of the .Brazos, the crossing of the Bexar-Nncogdoches road, and on the Lavnca. Uniformed men with bayonets and guns were soon familiar figures in the country. General Teran felt, that the posts must be strengthened to enforce fully the new laws. The presence of troops was disconcerting to the settlers, however. For years, when they had really needed the aid of troops to help them against the Indians, they had not had sufficient help. Troops seemed rather useless to them at the present time, and they were bitterly opposed to them. General Tsran was not ignorant to the attitude of the people. His soldiers had explicit orders "to create a spirit of friendliness between themselves pjid the settled, and definite instructions were given as to matters of discipline and oc- operation with local officers All went well except Armhuac, where Colonel John Davis Bradburn was in charge. Mexican officers were ruling at the other posts, and it is possible that Brad- bum was less tactful and more domineering than the others. Whatever the cause, it was not long before real trouble developed at that place. Events had begun shaping themselves, which ultimately resulted In the Revolution, the Centennial of which is to be observed in 1936. CAPITOL CHATTER BY CHARLES E. SIMONS AUSTIN, Jan. 21. (IP) — Backed by civic organizations and sponsored by the state labor commission another concerted driye will je made in the 44th legislature for ratification of the child labor amendment to the federal constitution. The Texas Federation of Wom- n's Clubs has made ratification one of the leading objectives of its legislative program and will join other groups in pushing it through both houses. Four times the proposition has oeen defeated in the Texas legislature. On each occasion the amendment has been approved in the house by a substantial majority but blocked in the senate. Early action will be sought on the proposal at the regular session so it can be gotten to the senate early with the backing of house approval. Advocates then will concentrate their efforts on the sen- ate and plan to bring all the 1 pressure they can muster to put it over. That the amendment will again meet with serious opposition in the senate has been clearly indicated. Senator W. K. Hopkins of Gonzales engaged recently in a joint debate in which he took a vigorous stand against it. Hopkins contended it would give the federal government unlimited grants of power to, regulate child labor that at some time might infringe too far on state and family rights. Hopkins indicated he would renew his suggestion that terms of the amendment be made more specific and resubmitted to the states. The ratification movement has been given support by President Roosevelt who favors making permanent the advances made in child labor conditions under the NRA. Twenty states have ratified the amendment, most of them within the! past two years. A few years ago the amendment was regarded as ' dead, more states having rejected it than had approved it. Twenty state legislatures will hold sessions this winter and ratification of the child labor amendment is on the agenda of a majority. State and national sponsors of the amendment believe a substantial number of these states will approve it. Should ratification fail in the Texas legislature proponents believe the amendment may be made the subject of a statewide refrendum either at a special election next year or at the general election in 1936 to test the sentiment of the people. Many legislators oppose the amendment ore the ground that it did not meet with " approval of their constituents. Mi B. Long Returns From Funeral of Mother in Topeka Mark B.

SPEECH NEW YORK—They paid $7.50 each for tickets, chained themselves to a railing, and still didn't get to tell their story. They interrupted a speech by Mayor Fiorcllo H. La- Guardia, however, in no less a place th(in the grand ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Ann Friedman and Ann Millel 1 , striking em- ployes of a department store, sought to lell their employer, who was chairman at the philanthropic function, that "charity should begin at 'Mie." Persons in nearby boxes clapped their hands over the girls' mouths \vhen they started to speak. Detectives finished the muffling job while workmen sawed the chain.
