EVENING, JANUARY 2.3, 1935. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Plunpfc, T&ft PAGE SEVEN COMPROMISE EFFECTED BY BOTH SIDES IN RELIEF CAUCUS WASHINGTON, .Inn. 23 «V- The foes that Secretary Harold \,. Ickes has made on Capitol Hill claimed a victory today after hearing reports that he would not be the arbiter of the $4,000,000,000 fund to transfer the destitute from the dole to public works. This was a major development in a "revolt" in which dissenting house democrats wrung a compromise from the party leadership on a plan to rush a $4,880,000,000 relief-and- works measure through congress under strict "gag" rule. It was a compromise in which both sides said they gained a measure of success. As the result of a caucus agreement last night, democratic leaders predicted the gigantic 'i,jj bill would go through tomorrow in a "lump sum" without ear-marking arty of the money for specific projects. Thus President Roosevelt would be 'granted his wish for free discretion in spending the money. But in answer to demarlds of insurgents, it was agreed that three sections of the bill,-giving the president broad power, would be thrown open to amendments on the floor. Opponents of the powers were trying to determine today if they could muster enough votes to gain their •ends. The caucus voted 190 to 35 for a modified "gag," to be introduced today, which limits discussion to four hours. One section of the bill opened for amendment would empower Presi-^ dent Roosevelt to continue Ickes as" public Works administrator until June 30, 1937, about two years beyond his present term. Speaker Byrns, who is seeking to press the administration program through, had told the caucus that he had received assurance from the White House that President Roosevelt himself would distribute the works money, and see that all projects got consideration on "an equal basis." The word was passed, though not by Byrns, that the president had said neither Ickes nor Harry Hopkins, relief administrator, will become head of the new agency that will administer the-vast sum. What that means for the future of these men—botli known as leaders in the more "liberal" camp of the new deal—the capital was trying to figure. Both are now powerful figures in th<; administration— fdirecting two oi' - the 'new deal's (most gigantic enterprises. Under the new plan public works nnd relief are to be merged and placed under a new agency, . ;..... Ickes is knoK, i to have made enemies in congress in his expressed determination to direct public works along lines he considers best, encounters between him and some congressmen have led to bitterness. Insurgents claimed another victory when Chairman Buchanan (D.,Tex.) of the appropriations committee agreed to an amendment under which the works bill would specify no particular project. As originally drawn, it mentioned a long list, but left out irrigation, rivers, and harbors and other projects which, in the past, have been close to the hearts of congressmen seeking federal aid for their home districts.

Mrs. Dora Bullock Frost, 4G, and George Frost, 40, a former insurance agent officers said she married four months after the death of her first husband, were named in connection with the death June 1. 1934, of Woodiwv Wilson Bullock, 17. Still under investigation were the deaths of Jones M. Bullock, 43, on March 2,' 1934; Leola Bullock on January 1, 1935; and Vernon Bullock who died July 1G, 1932, at the age of 10 months. Tom Harris, assistant district 'attorney who announced the new charges were being prepared, said a chemist had reported discovery of poison in the viscera of the father, the elder son, and the girl.' Examination of the body of the infant had not been completed. Harris said lie expected charges to be filed during the day in connection with the deaths of the father and the daughter. Frost lost his position as an insurance agent, Harris said, when he turned in the premium on a policy on the life of Woodrow. Wilson Bullock, the day-after the boy's death. Their Desperate Bid for Freedom Failed (Continued from nage 1.) private disttibutors more cheaply than the latter could produce it. Uncle Sam pays no taxes; he collects them. But rates have been dropping steadily, in Pampa especially, and the government can assure the people of fair rates without going directly into the business. . . . Yet, regardless of the utility argument, we doubt that electricity can open the way to a solution of the gas problem. It might open the way for federal intervention, an outcome which Governor James V. Alhcd and many others are fighting. . . . The problem may resolve itself into the problem of how to avoid federal intervention, for states are rapidly losing their identity and the break-up of state authority will be the beginning of the end of .democratic, representative government in this country. QUR, POLITICAL PRIMER: Whatever outsiders may believe, legislation passed in congress is little influenced by the flood of or.a- tory which accompanies it. People back home may visualize the houses of congress as a forum for debate upon the merits of the many bills they read about. They ate, in a way, but most of the debate is as potent as a sham battle. Legislation enacted by any congress is largely that originating with or sponsored by the majority party. There are exceptions, of course, but generally speaking this is true. Important measures brought up have had thorough scrutiny and a favorable report by a well organized committee. They probably have had strong backing from the country. Some have had the approval of the steering committees and some i in the house particularly)- have been reported out by that powerful group known as the rules committee. Such measures are on the program for passage and, long debates and much oratory cannot defeat them. On the other hand, bills that are not slated for passage do not often get up for action. In the present administration^ the prestige, and power of the White House has been such as to insure passage of many bills when it has become known on capitol hill the president favors them. Committee responsibility in congress is great and committee action influential. On most ^amendments and on most bills a majority of the members vote most of the time with the committee—and it is difficult to break into that influence even With fine oratory. ^f. Henry F.

CINCINNATI DOCTOR SAVES FINE HORSES WHICH BREAK THEIR LEGS "O New Fight Over Colorado River Bill Under Way AUSTIN, Jan. 23 .(/P)—Renewal of the bitter fight over the lower Colorado river authority, an issue which split two special sessions of the preceding legislature, brewed in the housD of representaives today. It centered in a bill- approved,. 11 to 3, by the house state affairs i in fact, except in few instances, they CINCINNATI, Jan. 23. (fP)— Because Dr. P. P. Wehner of Cincinnati once saw a race horse shot to death ' when its leg was broken, it may not be necessary in the future to take that extreme measure in all cases. - . Dr. Wehner, although interested primarily in the treatment of hu- •man ills, has just removed casts from the legs of two horses who were so injured during a race meeting here last fall, and x-ray tests show the bones have mended. Never before, say race authorities, has a track horse "come back" after once it was down with a broken leg; committee to outlaw the payment of a commission or fee for obtaining a federal loan or other steps in refinancing with federal aid the Buchanan dam project on the Colorado river sixty miles above Austin. The issue as an amendment to the L. C. R. A. bill deadlocked one session and sharply divided another. Sponsors of the project previously succeeded in eliminating the amendment, which was objectionable to attorneys of the public works acl< ministration. They threatened to' withdraw an ear-marked $4,500,000 loan if it was incorporated in the act. Unyielding advocates of the restriction, Representative Sarah T. Hughes of Dallas and Senator Weaver Ivloore of Houston, formerly a representative, promptly revived the issue as the new legislature convened. They charged omission of the re- strection might permit R. W. Moj - - rison of San Antonio, utilities operator, to receive a substantial commission in 'refinancing the hydroelectric power project initiated by Insull interests. Representaive Harry N. Graves of Georgetown, one of the authors of the C. R. A. bill, objected to reopening the question with the P. W. A., but said he did not oppose the amendment in principle. «•» COTTON BOARD CHOSEN COLLEGE STATION, Jan. 23 (/P) —Members of the 1935 state allotment board for cotton have been named by O. B. Martin, Texas extension director,, as follows: A. L. Smith, chairman, extension service, College Station; A. M. Bourland, •farmer, Wilbarger county; John •Gorham, farmer, McLennan county; George Chance, farmer, Burleson county, and E. R. Eudaly, extension service, College Station. The appointments are effective Feb. 1. The state review board and the cotton allotment board have been combined this year in / one, the state allotment board, which will review cotton contracts and will make allotments under the Bankhead act. never have been given the opportunity—they have been shot, according to the accepted practice of horsemen. Dr. Wehner's two "patients" have been Prince Pine and Prince Kiev, both two-year-olds. Prince Pine's leg was broken September 1 and less yian three weeks later Prince Kiev tumbled. When the cast on Prince Pine's leg was removed he walked without a limp. Prince Kiev had only a slight limp, "most from habit," Dr. Wehner insists. Prince Pine, owned by Willie Crump, who also owned Head Play, winner of the Pr'eakness, won a race at Latonia-last June 25, and Crump had expectations of developing him into as great a horse as his more noted stable-mate, he said. Although their future is not certain, if the two Princes are returned to face the starting barrier .their work is sure to be watched with more than ordinary interest, say horsemen here. As for Dr. Wehner: "I got a lot of pleasure cut of it," he said, adding that the experiments were conducted not for the two horses alone, but in an effort to prove that horses could be cured, after such accidents, and made well enough to run again. .«. NEW INDUSTRY McALLEN, Jan. 23 (/P) — Grass gathering is a new industry in the c.castal region of the lower Rio Grande valley. More than 100 men are harvesting zacahuistel grass to ship baled to New Orleans, where it will be used as broom fillers and ior packing demipons. Several thousand tons of the 'marsh grass will be baled. New California Governor Urges State-Ownership SACRAMENTO. Calif.. Jan. 23. (/)>)—The man who defeated Upton Sinclair tit the polls last November spread before California today his program for rehabilitation of a crippled state Rovcrnment. Gov. Frank F. Merrinm, elected over the famous author-politician and his "end povsrly in California" platform, .submitted to the legislature a program which would impose an average increase in taxes of $125 a family for the next two years. In his message .Governor ~Merriam suggested a wide range of increased taxation begiming with a personal income tax and concluding with a one-per cent increase in the 2'i per cent retail sales tax. This revenue would .bo used to balance a budget which needs about $95,GOO,000 in new revenue and $47,300,000 for unemployment relief. Surprising many of his ardent supporters, the governor came out boldly for a state program looking toward acquisition of all privately owned water and power utilities. On one of the most contentious subjects facing the government, tho question of what kind of social legislation should 133 enacted, he made no definite recommendations. He told the legislature that after the federal government has completed its program for unemployment insurance and old age pensions . he would submit his recommendations in a special message. Karpis Search Covers Michigan As Trail Is Lost DETROIT, Jan, 23 (/P) —Alvin Karpis, public enemy No. 1 and his companion, Harry Campbell, slipped out of the limelight of a sensational police search in southeastern Michigan today into the undercover but deadly game of hide and seek with federal operatives. Police at Munroe — the region where the car the desperadoes took from an Allentown, Pa., physician was discovered yesterday—admitted today they were without clues. Sheriffs at Port Huron and Monroe, where road blockades were maintained in the hope of trapping- the fugitives, said they still were pushing the search but said they also were without clues. Inspector Phil Walter of 'the Ontario provincial police at Windsor, Ont., refused to conjecture on the possibility the gunmen might have crossed into Canada. He • said no organized search was contemplated. The Michigan state police and the Detroit police headquarters continued to broadcast orders to their officers still in the field. Heavily armed officers in armored cars continued to patrol the. highways, but the impression developed that, for the time being at least, Karpis and Campbell were out of reach. Inspector William J.' Collins in charge of the 28 Detroit officers assigned to the hunt gave little v value to reports that Karpis and Campbell, who is believed to be wounded, had doubled south on their trail and were headed for a hideout in the Oklahoma fastnesses made notorious by "Pretty Boy" Floyd.

APPROVAL BY HOUSE .COMMITTEE Ex-Husband Says Ann Harding Is An Unfit Mother LOS ANGELES, Jan. 23 If?)— Ann Harding, blonde star of the screen, made no comment today on her former husband's charge that she was not "a fit and proper person to have the custody, care or control of a minor child." The star's ex-husband, Harry Bannister, writer and actor, made the charge in a complaint filed yes^ terday in the superior court in which he sought custody of their 6-year- old daughter, Jane. The document made no specific charges against Miss Harding, nor did it amplify the statement regarding her alleged unfitness. Only a few weeks ago Miss Harding was granted sole custody of her daughter by a Nevada court, which modified her divorce decree granted May C, 1932. At the time of the divorce, Bannister was to have custody of the little girl for two months of each year. The main part of Bannister's one- pnge complaint was taken up with an attack on the validity of tho Reno divorce. He contended the actress was not then, nor ever na.s been a resident of Reno, but has for several years lived in California. Police Abandon Theory Robinson Was In Houston HOUSTON, Jan. 23 (/I')—The hunt for Thomas H. Robinson Jr., accused kidnaper of Mrs. Alice Speed Stall, Louisville, Ky., society matron, shifted to other parts of the country today with the announcement that police had abandoned a theory .lie was here disguised as a woman. Close inquiry was made concerning the identity of a woman who left a stolen automobile here shortly before police seized the machine, but no flaws were found in the story of a couple arrested with it, that they had picked up the woman here. "We have run down every clue available." said George E. Peyton, captain of detectives, "and have been unable to find any trace of a woman masquerading as a man, or of Robinson." He said all finger prints on the automobile had been chocked, and none of them corresponded with Robinson's, and announced his conviction that Robinson was never in the car or connected with it. He expressed the belief the wonian at first believed to have been Robinson was a hitch hiker. Julius G. King of Kingsmill was a business visitor h3re Monday. AUSTIN, Jan. 23 i.T>)—Administ.ra- ticr^-sponsoreri bills to effect a planned recovery program for Texas Held the spotlight in the legislature today. Governor James V. Allred's initial recommendations to the house and senate apparently were well heeded. Material progress was recorded for his proposals by a legislature o'.her- wise relatively inactive. The babkbone of. his program, a bill to establish n state planning board to chart the state's future course in relief, rehabilitation and ieccncmic recovery, was approved in ' short order by a house committee. Optimistic sponsors planned to ask the hoine today to suspend its rules and pass the bill as emergency. . It would develop projects feasible j for government recovery funds. Meanwhile the senate contributed , it;; share of cooperation. The special order of the diiy was a series of nine bills which Governor Allrecl said were necessary to assure Texas' full participation in the national housing administration benefits. The bill;; would conform slate banking, Insurance and building and loan association restrictions to NHA reg- | illations so Texas home owners and prospective home builders could obtain federal housing funds. Th? bills would let Texas financial in- Elitutions invest in loans insured by the federal agency. The same program of legislation also held approval of a house committee. Speedy disposition of the j state planning board bill would clear | the path for requested suspension of iiulos for passage of the NHA bills : in the house. I Apparent cooperation between the | legislative and executive branches of the government had all but consummated another administration recommended program of legislation to relieve congested court lockets in three counties in the Easi. Toxn.s oil field. Governor Allred proposed re-establishment of .special district courts. Bills to continue special, courts in Smith and Rusk counties were promptly enacted and became law with the governor's prompt approv- ! al. His appointment of Nat W. i Brooks of Tyler to be judge of the I Smith county court was speedily confirmed by the senate. The third bill to provide a permanent and a temporary district court in Gregg county passed the hcuse and was approved by a senate I committee the c{ay it was intro- j duced. Senate sponsors hoped to j send it on to the governor today. Another relief measure was speedily approved by the governor. It was a resolution to make effective Immediately a reiease of penalties and interest on property taxes dei linquent last August 1. Failure of i thr. senate to accord a two-thirds ! affirmative majority to the act of ! the preceding special session would i have delayed its effectiveness until February 9. The resolution made it operative immediately. Penalties and interest, would be released entirely until March 15, and from that date to June IJO, past due assessments could be paid with a small interest charge.
