WELLINGTON, Aug. 31. —The world may be filled with forgotten men and women, but he or she, as the case may be, does not live in the Eller community, Collingsworth county. When it came time to vote on the special, amendments last Saturday, the Eller community was found to have only one paid poll tax. Still, Elller. is a voting box and as such is due all consideration accorded any other legal voting box. Have Two Judges. Having only one poll tax, the Eller box fell into the clasification of 100 or' less voters—and only two men were employed to hold the election as the law requires. Each of these men were paid at the rate of $3 a day for their services .totaling $6. The fee for returning the box wos $2, and the total cost of the election at Eller was $8. . However, the Ions voter at Eller did not seem interested in the en' tire seven amendments—and only voted on two of them.' Thus, the Eller box only cast two-sevenths of a complete ballot at a cost of $8. Whether the single ballot was the paid poll tax, an "over," an "under" or an absentee ballot is not known. . . Could Build Road. .. The county thought perhaps the procedure of Eller's voting machine might ge a little bit too high in cost so they looker!: around. Finally, they found that they could remedy the situation by merely building a road from Eller to China Grove, the nearest voting box, which is now .accessable only by horseback. They ' 'are still scratching their heads. Furthermore, the community is Eller, not Ella—and there may not be but one vote there, but that vote is just, as good-as anybody else's vote. Russia Is Again Warned To Drop Overthrow Plan WASHINGTON, Aug. 31 (/P)—The United States tonight warned the Soviet union that future friendly relations depend solely, on the Soviet's strict adherence to its pledge of non-interference in this nation's internal affairs. Reaffirming the American government's declaration that the Soviet union has permitted flagrant violations of its non-interrerence pledge, Secretary Hull tonight is- isued a statement warning Moscow that the third Internationale's subversive activities must end. The announcement, made as a public statement, and not sent tc Moscow, followed a warning thai continued subversive activities by the comintern would result in "the most serious consequences." If the Soviet continues to let agitators on Russian soil plan anc direct a program for the overthrow of American institutions, Hull declared, it will mean repudiation of the 'pledge and a blow to relations with the United States.

'OLITICS By BYRON PRICE Looking back over the eight months of the congressional session, one of the most difficult things to understand is what happened to the "wild men" who were supposed at the turn of the year to be in complete possession of capital hill. Political memory is notoriously short, but perhaps readers will recall that after the elections of 1934, one of the paramount topics of speculation was whether President Roosevelt would be able to hold within reasonable bounds the untamed spirit of radicalism which presumably had been voted into legislative power. The inflationists were rampant. The Townsencl Plan was sweeping eastward like a prairie fire. The forces of revolution and communism were rising. Could the President stem the tide? • There can be no question that the sessipi has witnessed an appreciable s ring leftward in legislation, althoi ;h the trend has fallen far short >f many predictions. The interest! ig thing, however, is to inquire nto the origins of this trend, ' Bills, modified The first legislative proposal of tho S ssion was.. the $4,800,000,000 works -elief appropriation. It came, not fi >m "Wild men" in congress, but fit m the White House. Actually, it was received; amid some indications Of sjipclfejed surprise at tho capitali and pongress demurred for weeks Jbefore, accepting it. The* followed £ long list of measures, "submitted, with Presidential approval. They included the utilities bill. security bill, the bank hllj thft AAA and TVA amendments, the'fG,U|fey coal bill, the wealth ip$$, the bill to prohibit 1 Its, and, others, is ,that almost every measures \vsis.jnodUJecl congress to tak.e put sions. Only with respect to one important issue—the bonus—did the President find it necessary to use the veto. The inflationary threat never arose except in that bill. The Townsend plan and other lefisl movements which the country heart so much of eight months ago mustered only a handful of support a the capitol. What -actually happened was almost the reverse of what had been advertised. Glass' Power Increases It may'be recalled, too, that less than a year ago, when the country Certificates ArHve Bankhead tax exemption certificates on cotton for Gray county ;rowers have arrived at the county agent's office. They are being pre- jared for distribution. All farmers who will not raise any cotton or not up to their Bankhead allotment will have the privilege of pooling heir certificates immediately. The agent's office will remain open tomorrow. No Gas Ruling Full application has not been made by the Railroad commission of H. B. 266, the gas regulatory and conservation measure, and until full details are worked out, any fear of drastic changs In the Panhandle Oil field is considered premature and ill-advised. While the oil-gas ratio will doubtless be lowered, a displacement factor Involved will ease the effect of this step, commission officials state. Rumors of changes In the field proved, on investigation .yesterday, to be false. Definition of gas wells is contained in the new law, and is not of Railroad commission origin. The B. C. D. is actively engaged in a study of the probable effect of the law and orders based upon it.

Miss Jewel Motley returned Friday evening from a three week vacation trip. After visiting relatives at Big Spring and Abilene, she spent several days in Los Angeles and other places in California. GAS ORDER (Continued From Page 1) vas supposed to be stampeding toward the left, predictions were heard that By 1936 Mr. Roosevelt night find himself the leader of the right, the last hope agaings' extreme radicalism. Instead, the most conspicuous movement against him today is a movement of right-wingers who are appealing to the conservatives to defeat him In 1936. Predictions were heard that tin congressional session would product new radical leaders of dangerou power, who would capitalize fo political purposes the tremendou congressional swing awsy from con servatism. Instead, the one man on capita hill whose power and renown havf increased almost hourly is Senato Carter Glass, who stands militant and merciless against radicalism and against many of the policies of the Edminlstration. What does all of this portend for the coming campaign year? It will be interesting to sec. AMARILLOAN APPOINTED Gei-ak! C. Mann, chairman of the Texas Planning board's public heslth committee, announces the appointment of Dr. R. D. Gist of Amarillo to membership on the public health committee. Dr. Gist is well known to the people of this section of the state, and his appointment assures the Panhandle and West Texas of adequate representation ' and sympathetic consideration of the particular ailments and conditions which affect West Texns.

They visited Mrs. Moseley's parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. Smith of Houston. Mrs. Moseley and her sister, Miss Louise Smith, made a trip to scenic and historic spots around San Antonio, including the Alamo and Randolph field. Here From Michigan Bob Allen of Ann Arbor, Mich., has been visiting in the homes of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Corson and Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Todd. He has spent the summer in California with his aunt, Bessie Brown, and accom- be unfounded. It was pointed out that all other fields of the state have similar regulation. The order is expected to result in a greater ultimate recovery of oil, though conservation of the gas-drive for the crude oil. The new order, signed by K. I. Dunn, deputy supervisor follows: To all operators of oil wells and purchasers of gas produced from oil wells: Quoting paragraph five and six from page 2 of the Panhandle Order, Oil and Gas docket No. 108, dated August 28, 1935 and effective 7:00 a. m. September 1, 1935: "It is necessary to restrict the daily amount of gas produced from oil wells in order that equal withdrawals from the reservoir might be accomplished. To do this, it is necessary for the Railroad commission of Texas to establish a maximum gas-oil ratio for all oil wells in the Panhandle field. Therefore, it is ordered by the Railroad commission of Texas that, effective September 1, 1935, no well producing both oil and gas shall be permitted to produce gas in excess of twelve thousand (12,000) cubic feet per barrel of oil produced unless specially authorized by an order of the Railroad commission to vary therefrom. The gas-oil ratio shall be the relationship of the total volume of gas in cubic feet to the total volume of oil In barrels, produced from any specific well. Any well which, by reason of its location or mode of completion, is producing "with a gas-oil ratio in excess of that authorized by the Railroad commission shall be. allowed to produce daily a total volume of gas equivalent to that • of any other well producing from the same common source Within the imits set by the commission." Since the oil well producing the maximum amount of gas In the field, within the prescribed gas-oil ratio of twelve thousand (12,000) cubic feet per barrel of oil pro- lueed, IF a well producing one mil- ion two hundred thousand (1,200,000) cubic feet of gas per day, no oil well in the Panhandle field may produce In excess of one million ;wo hundred thousand (1,200,000) cubic feet of gas in any one day. Any well producing both oil and ;as where the gas-oil ratio is in excess of one hundred thousand (100,000) cubic feet per barrel of oil is classified by House Bill No. 266 as a gas well.
