Farmers United With Governor Against Rebels MEXICO, D. P., Jan. 24. f/D—An army of SOO farmers was mobilized in the state of Tabasco today roady to assist federal troops in putting down a reported conspiracy to overthrow Governor Tomas Garrido Canabal. The governor went by plane to Tabasco last night to organize the auxiliary force. He returned here later to resume his duties as federal secretary of agriculture. The rebels recently attacked the town of Macuspana, killing the mayor. (The leader and seven members of a band of rebels operating in the vicinity of Vera Cruz wer? repotted to have been slain by federal troops after killing several persons in Ohocoman and Monte Blanco.) Three Mexicans Die in Gun Fight PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico, Jan. 24 (/!>)—Three Mexicans were dead today and two wourAlcd after a gun fight which occurred at Villa Union, 20 miles southeast of Piedras Negras, when Mexican state rangers and police attempted to dispossess agrarians, number about 25, from lands illegally held. When the agrarians refused to leave, poliqc were 'brought to the scene and the agrarian farmers drew up in line of battle. In- the ensuing fight, the chief of police, the leader of the agrarians and another combatant were killed. The fight was still in progress last night when federal troops from the Piedras Negras garrison, commanded Ijy Gen. Porfirio Cadcnas, arrived. They forced the insurgents to surrender. Soldiers disarmed 25 and confiscated a truck load of arms and ammunition. Soldiers brought back to Piedras Negras today two other leaders of the agrarians and jailed them pending trial. o- _—,—.

GAS (Continued from page I.) HAUPTHANH (Continued from page 1.) AUSTIN, Jan. 24. </P) — Bills were introduced in the house of the Texas legislature today to declare gits pipe lines public utilities and to dfvorce pas transportation from producing corporations. The bills were drafted by Representative H. K. Stanfielcl of Am- arlllo, in the dissension - racked Panhandle gas field. Power would be given the Texas railroad commission to limit withdrawals of gas to use for light and fuel purposes in areas where the supply was less than the demand; to authorize gas to be use for other purposes where the supply exceeded the demand.; to restrict production to market demand and to enforce proration among producers and rateable taking by pipe line companies and to determine a fair price for gas. Companies engaged in both producing and transporting gas would be given one year to determine which of th|s two lines they would pursue. The bills supplemented several previous proposals for regulation of the gigaiHic Panhandle gas industry which has attracted nationwide attention because of the millions of cubic feet of gas that have been blown into' the air following failure of gns field owners and companies controlling market outlets to reach an amicable agreement. Initial hearings on gas wastage control bills hare been set for next Tuesday by the hpuse committee on oil, gas and mining. Bills to increase the production tax on oil to three cents per barrel and to levy' a tax 'of one-fifth of one cent per 1,000 cubic feet on gas production were among a mass dropped into the legislative mill. Subjects incvluded were— To reduce the registration fee for passenger motor vehicles to $5. To prohibit sale of prison made goods. To require books used in Texas schools to be printed in Texas. To declare unfair price cutting to destroy competition a misdemeanor. To establish a state criminal identification bureau. To apply the separate coach railroad law to motor busses. To remove insanity as a bar to divorce where grounds for separation accrued before insanity. To invalidate city ordinances prohibiting house to house sale of farm products by producers. (Continued from page 1.1 orderly development of public projects. Commenting on the two reports, Mr. Roosevelt said: "Man and nature must work hand in hand. The throwing out of balance of the resources of nature throws out of balance also the lives of men. We find millions of our citizens stranded in villages and on farm—stranded there because nature can not support them in the livelihood they had sought to gain through her." The presidential message went to n house in the midst of debate on the $4,000,000,000 fund. The same measure contained $808,000,000 for direct relief pending the gradual transition from a dole to work relief. Senator Couzens, outspoken Michigan republican, said that "if ever the man is found who drafted the work relief bill he ought to be hung —not in effigy but physically." His statement was made during a senate committee hearing on another matter while Mr. Roosevelt's agent traveled to the capitol thru heavy snow with a new presidential message. , * .o. E. P. Strickland, employe of the Magnolia Petroleum company, gasoline division, was taken to Worley hospital this morning for treatment of an eye injury. BIRTHDAY B.ALL CAMPAIGNERS Three leaders who figure in the 1935 Birthday Ball for the President talk over final details of the national campaign at luncheon.

Tickets for invisible guests are being sold at a dollar each, and the money will be turned over to the Birthday Ball Commission for Infantile. Paralysis-Uesearch, r,f -which Col. Henry L. liberty U clialr- for the state to recall Sisk since he would be available to the defense at any time. Cross - examination of Koehler was briefer than was expected, and was directed chiefly toward showing the kidnap ladder, down which the state charges Hauptmann carried Baby Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. from his crib to his death, was constructed by an amateur, whereas Hauptmann is supposed to be an expert carpenter. Wilentz had the bald expert tell the jury that the "rail 16" of the ladder was not part of the lumber shipment traced to the Bronx lumber yard. "Ball 16" is the rail which allegedly was cut from the attic board in Hauptmann's home ' Wilentz asked the court for permission to introduce Hauptmann's automobile as an exhibit. , ''We have it," he said "on the court house property and, if the v/eather permit the jury may have permission to examine it." The purpose, he said, was to show the car was owned and operated by Hauptmann at the time of arrest. Justice Trenchard said that a photograph, should be produced instead. Q. What was it you traced to the lumber yard? A. Just the two bottom rails of the ladder. Koehler then said the other uprights were of fir, with the exception of "rail 16," and the rungs of Ponderosa pine. Wilentz showed Koehler the picture of the Hauptmann car. Q. Have you see this automobile? A. I have. Q, Did you take this ladder and attempt to fit it in that car? A. I did. Q. Did it fit? A. It did with several inches to spare. It fitted in on top of the front and rear seats. Defendant Interested A photograph was shown by C. Lloyd Fisher, defense counsel, to Hauptmann, who studied it for several minutes. The defendant showed increasing interest in his case as the time for his appearance on the stand approached. He pointed out to Fisher that the photograph showed a trunk at the rear of the car. The state brought the car to Flemington without the trunk and Justice Trenchard admitted the photograph with the difference stipulated. Frederick A. Pope, of the defense, began cross-examination of Koehler, questioning him on his testi- money in prior cases. As the cross examination proceeded Col. Lindbergh and Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, state police head, arrived and stood in the doorway of the library • adjoining the court and looked on. The bulky little defense attorney directed Koehler's attention to federal trade commission suits in which le testified on "wood failures." Koehler explained the cases involved questions of wood weakness or overloading. Tells of Chisels Q. You have never undertaken in court before to identify chisel or plane marks on lumber? A. No. Q. Now you demonstrated to the jury yesterday that one of the notches in the ladder rail was made by a •>! inch chisel? A. Yes. Q. It could well be made by any standard % inch chisel? A. Yes. Q. You were shown, by the prosecutor, these chisels one a quarter inch, one a half inch and one three- quarter? A. Yes. Q. Were you shown any other standard set? A. No. Q You were shown the set in Hauptmann's chest? A. Yes. Koehler said three rails of the ladder were North Carolina pine and the others Douglas fir. Pope then directed the expert's attention to the ladder section which contains the alleged attic floor board as an upright. The other upright was Douglas fir, Koehler said. Q. You do not know whether both those uprights were originally Douglas fir? A. I do not. 'Plant' Hinted Pope was apparently hinting at the possibility the floor board rail was a "plant. 1 ' , Pcpe sought to bring from Koehler that the two bottom rails were of better "quality" than that of the top section, allegedly taken from the Hauptmann attic. Koehler gave a long explanation of his understanding of "quality," indicating the pitch content and the number of knots might vary in pine wood. Koehler declared "speaking commercially^' the attic flooring and "rail 16" v were of the same quality as the North Carolina pine found elsewhere in the ladder. Q. Taking this ladder structure as a whole would you say it was built by a mechanic or an amateur? Q. Do you mean by a caipenter or a machinist? Q. Do you think it was built by a mechanic? A. No, I do not. . Q. It was a rather poor job, wasn't it? A. Yes. Pope told how officers had previously described how the first two sections of the ladder were used for the kidnaping. Then he shot the question. "From your knowledge of wood would you say this ladder would hold the weight of a man 175 to 180 pounds. "Yes," he said, "I think it would." Chat Together Q. Could he go up and down, readily, without the ladder breaking? A. He might. Q. The nearer the rounds are together, the stronger the; ladder? A. I wouldn't say that. The longer the step of a man, the heavier thd.-jerk on the ladder. Pope sought to show that the side sway of a ladder was a greater strain on a .ladder than downward stress, tending to cause breakage, , ' MARKET WHEAT TABLE Wheat: High Low Close May 97'/s 98% 96%"s July 89 87 "J 85%-','i Sept 6T.'»_ 86'/4 87 CHICAGO GRAIN CHICAGO, Jan. 24.

The defense counsel, hands in pockets, entered into a chatty discussion with the expert on the technical factors which would induce breakage of wood, including fibre severance and the effect of nails on strength. Pope, interrupting his questions with frequent visits to the defense table to consult notes, turned Koehler's attention to the dowell pin tied to the third section of the ladder. Koehler said it, and the other, found near the ladder were birch wood. Q. Did you examine a small piece of dowell said to be found by the state police in the Lindbergh house? A. I don't remember any little piece. No. Pope was apparently trying to turn the kidnaper's trail back into the Lindbergh home in line with the repeated defense hints of an "inside job." Wilentz, on redirect examination, elicited from Koehler that he had traced no lumber such as used in the ladder to Hopewell or Skillman. Q. Does this ladder look the work of a $100 a month carpenter? A. I don't know. Hauntmann's pay before the kid- naping was $100 a month, previous testimony has brought out. Q. Is this the work of a carpenter? A. A rough carpenter, yes. Q. A little fellow like myself would have a hard time climbing those rungs? A. Yes. Q, A man 5 "9" or 5 "10" would have an easier time? Pope objected and was overruled. A. Somewhat easier. Tools Examined The jury tittered when Wilentz picked up a tool, studied it for a ninute and inquired: "What's this?" "A screw driver," said Koehler. Koehler said the Hauptmann tools were not a "a good carpenter's tools" and the plane was not "a good carpenter's plane." Q. It is still your testimony those plane marks on the ladder were nade by this plane? Wilentz gestured to the plane. A. It is. Pope objected and the answer was stricken. "It's not a fact," Wilentz asked "as f leading to his final question for ;he state "that this rung and board ;ound in the attic were one and the same." Pope objected and was overruled. Koehler said "I am." Wilentz turned Koehler back to Pope. Pope took the' witness for cross examination and asked if the dowell pin holes where the ladder split and lid not weaken the rail considerably. The expert said the holes did weaken the wood, but would not say that the splits resulted from the holqs. He blamed stress at the point plus the weakness there for the split. Pope asked if "a boy in a manual :raining schcol could do a better job ;han this ladder.'.' 'Yes, with experience," Koehler replied. Wilentz took the witness again, jringing: out that the distance be- iween the rungs was regular and pencil marks had been put on it, 'such as a carpenter would do." Pointing to the cracked ladder section, Wilentz elicited from Koeher that the stress of human weight on it was "the likely way it broke." State Rests Pope asked if there couldn't have jsen other ways. Koehler agreed. Koehler was then excused and ,he state's legal staff conferred briefly. Wilentz turned from the confer- nce and in low tones said: "The state rests your honor." Rellly announced he would like :o continue his cross examination of Thomas H. Sisk. Wilentz stood, on his. announcement. "The state has rested. You may call whom you please." Reilly also asked to have Miss Hlldegarde Olga Alexander recall- id to test her "credibility."

DALLAS, Jan. 24. —Support for the Texas Centennial celebrations of 1936 to be held by numerous cities of the state possessing shrines of Texas' liberty, or otherwise associated with the glamorous history of the state, is being assured in every section of the state by means of the Texas Million Centennial club. Local units of the organization are being organized in every county in Texas through co-operation of the Texas Federation of Women's clubs and other organizations and societies in assuring that proper recognition is accorded the commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of the achievement of the state's independence. Membership blanks are being circulated from the Panhandle to the lower Rio Grancd valley and from Texarkana to El Paso by volunteer workers, whose sole ambition is, that the Centennial as a project both patriotic and .progressive be kept intact. To become a member, there is entailed no financial contribution, promise or obligation, but merely a pledge to endeavor to further the Texas Centennial celebrations' plans. Heading the membership drive for the Texas Million Centennial club is Mrs. Volney W. Taylor of Brownsville, head of the Texas Federation of Women's clubs and an active worker for the Centennial cause. PERSONALS Miss Dona Locke of Miami visited friends here yesterday.

(/P)—The sweetheart of La Roy Lane, sentenced to die in the electric chair shortly after midnight tonight, made a desperate attempt to save him today by claiming she fired at officers the night Deputy Sheriff Cecil Chapman was killed. Ora Lee Hood, 18, Denton county girl, hitch-hikqd to Dallas this morning and was waiting at tho sheriff's office to tell her story when it opened and later went before the grand jury. Lane was condemned to death for the shooting of Deputy Chapman in a gun fight near Dallas last Sept. 8. Miss Hood said she fired 4 shots at the officers with Lane's pistol, which she said he had tossed into her lap. She insisted Lane never fired a shot. Both Sheriff B. A. Scnmid and District Attorney Bob Hurt scoffed at her story, considering it a fantastic effort to obtain a last-minute slay of execution. They said * they did not place sufficient credence to notify Governor James V. Allred.
