Superintendent Back Fpom European 1 Tour .LONDON, Aug. 31.' (AP)—Francis M. Rickett, the secretive Etigllsh- man whose name was on the front page of newspapers throughout the world today in connection with concessions In Ethiopia, Is a "mystery , man" even to his wife. London business circles, seeking to throw light on the past activities of the promoter credited -with obtaining concessions for American and British firms, could describe him only as a man with a house In London, a country place at Great Shefford, Berkshire, a castle in Wales, and a proclivity for "dash- Ing off here and .there" in specially chartered airplanes. The promoter, It was learned, was once a director of a British oil development company which was granted rights along the Tigris by Emir Feisal of Iraq. In the Near East, where he has quietly conducted negotiations many years, he is known as the "Lawrance of finance." , Mrs. Rickett, living at the castle In Wales, said today she knew nothing of her husband's enterprises, explaining he did not discuss business matters with her.

(AP) — Tlie mechanical secrets of the robot glass heart which Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh built to maintain life outside 'the body were revealed officially today for the first time by a Rockefeller Institute publication. The success of his heart, announced last June without explanation of its mechanism, was hailed by scientists as one of the great achievements in medicine. The heart is a single piece of glass, roughly resembling an old fashioned pump, in which an entire kidney, liver spleen, or other organs of the human body can be kept alive indefinitely. It is the first robot in which artificial life can be kept going as long as the medical scientists wish, in plain'view of their eyes, where they can study the otherwise hidden progress of disease. The Lindbergh device—its proper scientific name a perfusion pump —supplies not only the heart beats of human pressure and rhythm, taut artificial blood and air to maintain life. Yet it is a device of maiTelous simplicity. As diagrammed by Lindbergh himself it is three glass chambers, connected, one above the other, in vertical position. In the top-floor chamber lives the organ endowed with artificial life. The bottom floor chamber is filled with the arlifical blood which medical scientists have long known how to create, but which they previously lacked the means of using readily. The recond floor bulb, lying between the artificially living organ above and the blood chamber below, serves to regulate to humanlike rythm the flow of artificial blood. This artificial life stream is driven, through a glass artery directly from the bottom floor reservoir into the top one containing the living organ. After running through the organ, the artificial blood passes by a different route down into the lower floor reservoir, to be used over again. C- COMMISSIONER CALLS CUT PUNISHMENT AND THREAT .

Pcm- brrton as the third day of halved crude oil prices passed and gasoline prices were reduced further. "The 'bears,' the rugged individualists, and those opposed to all forms of cooperation regulation have had their way," he said. "Curtailment has collapsed completely in the intensely competitive oil fields and in spite of advice, preaching and dire warnings, the price of crude oil has Been cut more drastically than it has ever been before." DALLAS, Aug. 31 (/P)—The Dal_las News says Chairman Ernest O. 'Thompson cf the Texas railroad commission issued a statement today charging that certain major oil companies planned to cut the price of gasoline as a means of forcing down the price of crude so that they might fill storage with cheap oil. The News says the'statement was dictated by Col. Thompson, now on vacation at a lodge near Reel Riwr, N, M., to a lawyer friend here by telephone. The story adds: "It (the statement) cam'e after reports conveyed to him that a re duction in the tank wagon price of gasoline had been decided upon by See THOMPSON, Page G Phillips Is Given Scare Of Life As Busby's Boys Hold Up For 6 Innings.

DECISION IS RES 0ASHEI Three Federal Judges Will Soon Announce Ruling On Validity of Gas Statute. HOUSTON. Aug. 31. WV-A Thrcc-jtidec federal court reserved declsicn after a hearing here today on a suit of the Texas Panhandle Gas company attacking validity of the new Texas gas proration law. Pending a decision, the court continued, in effect a restraining order prohibiting the state railroad commission from compelling the plaintiff to abide by the ratable taking provisions of the statute. The three judges previously had heard two other suits attacking oil or gas reg- ulotnvy measures. "We have come to a time when we should reconsider what we have been thinking and saying (with regard to gas legislation)," Judge Joseph C. Htucheson told S. A. L. Morgan of Amarillo, attorney for the Texas Panhandle Gas company. "We should be very reluctant to allow the present restraining order to lapse in the meantime," he added after consulting with his associates, Judge T.. M. Kennerly of Houston and R. J. McMillan of San Antonio. "The state has tried three times to write a valid gas law. Each time we have had to strike it down. Maybe it has succeeded this time, so that it becomes a matter for our. discretion. In my opinion, we should abuse it should we prevent you from doing what you have been doing all along until we had fully made up our minds on the matter." State Senator Clint Small of Amarillo made the closing argument for the gas law, of which he is the author. He said the statute is a proper exorcise of legislative authority to stop gas waste through stripping and carbon black plants and that it set up reasonable ratable taking provisions. "By stopping the stripping plants and the carbon black plants in the sweet gas nrea," Small argued, "we protected this plaintiff. If it hadn't been for us, he would have had hi? property confiscated by those people. We thought it not unreasonable, in view of that fact, and to assist us in correcting the evil we were trying to correct, to ask him to do with his properly as others were doing with theirs." A badly shaken Phillips baseball team went back to Borger last uight, lucky to be still in the running for big money In the Junior chamber of commerce baseball tournament. The- "66" boys from Borger had a trying evening defeating- the Busby Indians of Pampa, '/ to 2. For six innings the former Harvester youngsters battled the veteran Oilers toe to toe before cracking. The Indians went out of the tourney, but their two great battles will long be remembered. Orr last Sunday, the Indians gave Amarillo a bad scare. . Errors caused the downfall of the Busby youngsters. Keeling, who chunks the ball for Shell in the two-I league, limited Phillips to six hits, but five errors and some erratic work by his catcher cost him most of the runs. Haddock, on ^he mound for Phillips, allowed only four scattered bingles. He fanned 12 'and Keeling mowed down nine. "! Fuzzy" Feltner, Indian right fiel'der, was the hero of the game. Besides hitting a double, Feltner racjed near the fence after a foul baU and took it one-handed.

Seen As Block To Mussolini By JAMES A. MILLS World Copyright, 1935, By The Associated Press ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 31.—The swift stroke of Emperor Haile Selassie in turning approximately half his empire to English and American Interests for exploitations was generally regarded today as blocking Italian economic penetration of tUiiopia. An official communique confirmed the concession, made as the emperor prepared for a feared Italian invasion. Diplomatic quarters here appeared stunned. (The British foreign office instructed its minister to Addis Ababa to inform Emperor Haile Selassie Britain advises him to withhold the concessions. The announcement said the concessions would necessitate consultations among signatories of the 1906 treaty dividing spheres of economic influence In Ethiopia— namely, Britain, France and Italy. (A government spokesman in Rome said the action could in no way deter II Duce's East African plans.) The agreement was seen in some quarters as a blow to Italian eco- nonomic aims in the Hinterland of Italian Somallland and the only oil- bearing portion of interior Eritrea, also an Italian colonial possession. The communique explained, an oil concession was granted to the African Development Exploration company, Incorporated in Delaware, for development of oil resources. At the same time another concession, was granted' separate English interests, a corporation known as the Lake Tana conservancy syndicate, giving it the right in perpetuity to build a dam and pumping stations at Pake Tana, head- Sec. To Ethiopia DISPLACEMENT FACTOR USED TO EQUALIZE EFFECT A new gas-oil ratio effective. Sept. 1 and carrying out provisions of H. B. 266 will not adversely affect casinghcad gasoline and carbon black plants in the Panhandle field, although readjustments will doubtless involve some expense, it was staled here yesterday. The new connections which likely will be necessitated will result in creating some temporary employment, it was added, will broaden the market, and will not seriously affect the supply of gas to the plants. Inevitably, however, some new connections will be necessary and some improperly completed wells will be in need of attention. But the order directly applies to only thirteen wells, Railroad commission records showed. With the new ratio Is a displacement factor designed to equitably distribute the energy of the field. The well producing the maximum amount of gas in the field was producing with a gas-oil ratio of 9,160 cubic feet per barrel of oil, was allowed 131 barrels of oil daily; therefore, 131 times 9,160 gave 1,200,000 cubic feet. Tills is the displacement factor. There are 1,179 wells producing gas that is processed by gasoline plants for its gasoline content. These wells produce 154,000,000 cubic feet of gas a day. Under the new gas-oil ratio, 13 of these wells will be affected, representing approximately 32,000,000 cubic feet of gas. Of more than 2,400 oil wells in the field that produce casingheacl gas, under the new ratio it will be necessary for a number to be connected with gasoline plants to supply the gas that has been affected by the ratio. There are approximately 1,200 unconnected wells, most of which could be connected for this purpose, it was stated. Fears that the order would force the closing or moving of plants in the Pampa area were declared to »ee UAS ORDER, Page 3 Most Grocery Stores to Stay Open on Monday Many Pampa stores will be closed tomorrow, Labor day. Drygoods, clothing, and hardware merchants were among the first to announce all-day closing. Most grocery stores will remain open throughout the day, however, a canvass yesterday showed. Because two holidays, including Sunday, come together, a number of merchants felt that they should not close Monday. Baseball, golf, Panhandle horse races, and picnic trips will be among the amusements for Pampans generally. The Jaycee baseball meet, with good weather, is expected to draw huge crowds Monday afternoon and evening. TRAGEDY TAKES PLACE THIRTY MILES FROM SANTA FE, N. M. Claiming to have enlisted a dozen aviators already, Hal Duber- ricr (above), cf Chicago, who says he was a member of the famous Lafayette Escadrille, is recruiting an air force in France for service with the Ethiopian army in event of war with Italy.

Ickcs, 61, wife of the secretary of the interior and a politician in her own right, was killed tonight in a motor car collision which slate police charged to a hit-and-run driver. With three companions in a taxicab she was plunged Into a ditch 30 miles north of Santa Fe while cnroute here for a fiesta, opening tomorrow, from her summer home at Collidge, N. M.

M., taxicab driver. \ The "hit and run" driver struck the li Ickes car as it emerged from the steep-walled canyon of the Rio Grande, 10 miles north of Espanola. Espanola, a' tiny adobe settlement, is in an isolated spot in the rugged i gash that the river traces from the desert taboland on the Taos plains down to the hilly country in the Santa Fe area. State police under Capt E. 3. ": House first identified Seyfullah as John Herrick, husband of the writer, but a later check of effects dispelled the confusion .and Herrick was located in Washington. New Mexico state police announced the death of Mrs. Ickes and reported the car in which she was riding to Kspanola. N. M., near the scene of the crash, had been struck by a "hit and run" driver.

Eyesight dim, faulty of step, some of the aged soldiers undoubtedly will answer the annual confederate roll call for the last time. Of the several hundred thousand survivors of the four-year conflict in the 60's, not more than 7,000 remain.

(IP)— Dr. Hjalmar Schacht, Germany's "economic dictator," threw down the gauntlet to Paul Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda, today by reinstating a Reichsbank official who had been sent to a concentration camp. Dr. Schacht, who is president of the Reischbank and minister of finance, insisted that the "honor" of the man, Emil Koeppen, be fully restored. (Dr. Schacht in an address two weeks ago denounced "unregulated individual acts" against Jews and "other state enemies," warning "Jew-bailters" they were causing serious damage to Germany's busi» ness). In addition to being a Reichs- bank official Koeppen managed several apartment houses. He evicted a man named Riecker for nonpayment of rent in November, 1934, and Goebbel's Berlin newspaper, Er Angrieff, launched a bitter attach ,. upon Koeppen, saying he acted con- ,' trary to social principles of nazl Germany.
