Falls From Water Jower But Is Not Seriously Injured Albert Duby fell. from a water tower yesterday near Kellerville, landing on his shoulders'and ba'ek after a descent of about 20 feet.

Then he crawled about 100 yards to summon aid. H'e was- brought to Worley hospital here last- night. Today his condition was described as satisfactory, AUSTIN, Aug. 30 (/P)—The forty- fourth legislature was under summons today from Governor Allred tb convene Sept. 16 and take up the weighty problem of liquor regulation. Asserting it was his duty "to give effect to the will of the people." Governor Allrod yesterday formally called the special session, having announced the date previously. He submitted only the subject of defining and prohibiting the open saloon, regulating the manufacture, sale, transportation . and possession of intoxicating liquors and preserving the integrity of dry territory, but the usual clause left the door open for later submissions. While the governor said recently he had not decided on other subjects, it was believed he would submit legislation on old age pensions and abolition of the fee system for compensating local .officers. A bitter fight threatened on the issue of a state monopoly of liquor sales, which the legislature was empowered-to adopt by'the constitutional amendment approved Saturday. In'November, 1936. the people will votei on making a monopoly mandatory. Old age pension legislation w as expected to depend largely on the fate of the federal security program.
