TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 22, 1935 THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texan PAGE THBIB GAVE W.ILLARD A FAIR DEAL IN BATTLE WITH DEMPSEY WASHINGTON. Jan. 22. (/n None of his adventures in congress or as national amateur heavyweight boxing champion brought Senator Warren Harbour, New Jersey republican, .the thrill he got ns a belligerent timekeeper during the Willlard-Dempsey fight. Tile young and tigerish Dempsey rained damaging blows on the body of the champion under broiling sun that day at Toledo 16 years ago. Old Jess fell to the floor. A slightly deaf referee, Pecora. began counting the fatal 10. The bell rang, ending the first round, but Pecora didn't hear It. Thousands of fans were on their feet yelling and shouting their approval of this youth who had cut down the massive Wlllard. "No one paid ms any mind as I signalled frantically that the round had ended—that the bell had saved Wlllard," Harbour recalled. "The crowd was in an uproar, handlers had spiting into the ring to dance joyously around Dempsey. I might well have hushed and lot the bout go down in the records as a one-round knockout, but I was determined Willard should have the advantage the bell had given him. "I kept yelling I caught Pecora's attention. There was a loud squawk from the Dempsey bunch but I stood bv mv guns and the fight wn r ; rnntlnued." Pecora hart to'cl Bnrbour he Was deaf and h^d given him a whistle to blow. "But thora was nothing in the rules ntv-t the whistle blowing, so I'wouldn't blow it," the senator explained. The husky New Jersey solon, big- R3st man In congress, might have been champion himself had he chosen a professional career. Critics say few better prospects ever drew on the gloves. But he decicted on a business life, and lias never been sorry. He battered two rivals to win the amateur championship one night In 1910, outrcintlns Sailor. Salisbury nnd knocking out a flinger named Burke in ths third round. Earlnur often sparred with Jim Ccrbett, Kid McCoy and Stanley Kctchel and trained with Jeffries when he was preparing for the Johnson fight. Russian Due to Report Soon on Debt Proposal WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 (IP)— The Russian debt problem, which is bound up with attempts to boost American sales to the Soviet, returned to the minds of officialdom today when It developed that Moscow's answer to a United States proposal is expected within a week. Alexander Troyanovsky, Soviet ambassador who carried the American offer to Stalin, is due back in Washington shortly. He is expected to confer immediately with Cordell Hull, secretary of state, and Walton R. Moore, assistant secretary. The problem dates back to world war and post-war days. The sums at issue include czarist and Kerensky borrowings in the United State: and claims of Americans whose property was destroyed during the revolution or confiscated by the Bolsheviks. By the time the United States recognized the Soviet union the total had grown to about $500,000,000, President Roosevelt and Maxim Litvinoff, commissaj; for foreign affairs agreed, however, that a settlement for a greatly reduced amount could be achieved through Chaplin's New Film May Be'Another Silent As author, director, and leading star, Charlie Chaplin is guarding jealously the details concerning his latest production. But all signs point to very little, if any, talking. Upper picture shows Chaplin directing: the film, while lower photo is tho first to reveal a scene in the picture.

GARNER MEXICO, D. P., Jan. 22.—The Pan American highway from Laredo, Texas, to Mexico City is blocked to travel straight through to Mexico City by 68 miles of mountain construction between Tamazunchale and Jacala. It is also barred in this section to tourists by edict of the Mexican highways commission. There is no way around. Thomas Williams Jr., vice president of the Highways of Mexico company, general contractors on the road building, tcld me that he definitely expected that the mountain construction would be sufficiently complete by April 1 for general comfortable, and convenient tourist travel. The chief engineer of the Mexican commission told me it would be nearer June 1. Both were agreed that it would be about a year before the highway was either paved or rock ballasted all the way. Mexican rock ballast is quite as good as paving. Completed, there are three layers of crushed rock, si preliminary or basic coat of crushed rock with the sizes two or three inches big, a second coat of smaller, filler rock to smooth out the highway and a third coat of fine crushed rock, fixed in place with a binder of heavy oil that is almost asphalt. It makes a highway on which the speed limit of 50 miles an hour is comfortable and secure. A complete analysis of the road as it was in the latter part of December, 1934, follows; Laredo, Texas, to Montsmorelos, Old Mexico—194 milos. Asphalt heavily impregnated with) crushed rock. Perfectly smooth, wide enough for three cars side by side. Any speed posslbls on American concrete roads possible here. Speed limit by law 50 miles per hour. Montemorelos, old Mexico, to Villa Juarez, Old Mexico—209 miles. Triple rock ballast bound with heavy 'oil. High speeds feasible but speed limit continuously 50 miles per hour and slowed down 30 to 20 miles in the mountain passes which are low and of such grades that the travel is all in high) gear. Villa Juarez is 2Vj miles to the east. Villa Juarez to Tamazunchale— 131 miles. Road under light construction. All has preliminary coating of rock and some with second and third being installed in sections. Speed of 30 to 40 miles an hour feasible. Beginning about 50 miles south of Villa Juarez at Valles, and continuing to Tamazunchale, 5 new bridges are under construction. The total mileage of detours around these bridges is about 10 miles. Three, of the rivers are crossed on delightful ferries and two on single track bridges on the preliminary road. Caution is necessary on these detours and crossings. Tamazunchale to Jacala — 68 miles. Mountain road under heavy construction. Physically impassable and barred to tourists by edict of the highways commission. There are no detours by which you can go around. There is only one road. The pathway to Mexico City is com- jletly blocked beyond Tamazunchale. Don't try. it even with permission. It's 'terrific. My Studebaker Pathfinder, armed with the highest credentials for road clearances, made 25 miles in eight hours of driving ihe first day of this section beyond Tamazunchale and between 13 and 15 miles the second day. Second day, 13 miles by car and two on ;oot, to a sleeping place, while wait- Ing overnight for road clearances. Jacala to Ismiquilpan—62 miles. Mountain road, full width for three cars side by side, all with the first and some with the second layer of rock ballast, )$axtoum .speed oi 50 miles per hour on straight sec- OMifes © LAREDO 'VALLECILIO I'SABINAS HIOAICO fCICNECA OE FIORES 160 < MONTERREY I9*\MONTEMORELOS I LINARES 1C.VICTORIA > LLERA 403 f JUAREZ CO.

This section is sccnically delightful from Mexico City northward. Ismiquilpan to Mexico City—100 miles. Asphalt and rock paving. Maximum speed perfectly feasible. Maximum allowable speed in this section by law 46 instead of 50 miles per hour. A delightful drive northward from Mexico City. All of the feasible road, that is all but the blocked miles is an easy high gear pull, mountains and all. The completed road will have maximum grades of 6 per cent. Twice that is still a high gear pull. The speeds in this recapitulation are founded on the belief that 55 miles an hour should be a maximum speed over the best American concrete highways. If you want a pleasant. vacation from the north, the writer cannot advise a better journey than the one from Laredo, Texas, to Tama- zunchnle.

In the original Victoria county was established La Snlle's abortive colony one of the earliest settlments in Texas and the first Spanish mission in this region was located in the county, which even earlier had been visited by the Spanish explorer, Cabeza de Vaca. Victoria was among the oldest settlements in the state. It was established, as a Spanish colony In 1824, the present county being created and organized in 1837 from the original county. It was named for Guadalupo Victoria, the first president of the Republic of Mexico. Victoria did much to supply with provisions Fannin's command, while it wns at Goliad, and a number of his men, who fnccd firing squads here, are burled in Memorial Square Many Important troop movements both before and after the Battle of San Ja'cinto were through Victoria, and the Texas army made its headquarters hero directly after that battle. Gen. Zachnry Taylor's army also made Victoria its headquarters dur- for 10 days and ranges upward to $3.50 for 6 months. The border formalities arc inconsequential. They take about an hour.
