(#)-~construc- tlve developments In the eleventh district during the past 36 days, says thfei monthly business review of the federal reserve bank of Dallas; were found in "a betterment In the condition of agriculture. and livestock industries and a broadening demstndtfor merchandise in wholesale and retail channels." The business of department stores, a sensitive indicator of the ebb and flow of domestic trade, the erview finds in a highly satisfactory condition. In principal cities, it says, sales showed less than the Usual seasonal decline and the gain of 15 per cent as compared with a year ago was the largest similar increase reported during the current year. In the merchandising field, the review finds also that distribution at wholesale wns In large volume for this season. "Sales in most lines." It reports, "reflected a greater than seasonal expansion between June and July and the volume of business was substantially than a year ago. larger "Trade reports indicate that the growing optimism occasioned in part by the favorable agricultural prospects is being reflected in the heavier forward orders being placed by retailors in some lines and the expanding volume of consumer buying. Payments on accounts at wholesale and retail establishments were well in line with those of the previous month." Turning to production and finance in the district, the review continues: The position of agriculture Was strengthened by favorable weather conditions, which were conducive to large yields of most crops. On the basis of.the Aug. 1, report of tho department of ugri- culture, the production of crops in this district will be feed the largest in several years and farmers generally* will have ample supplies to meet next year's requirements. Tho indicated yiblds of most minor crops also are considerably larger than if year ago.

The loans and investments of member banks in selected cities reflected an expansion between July 10 and . Aug. 8,' and on the latter date were substantially larger than a year ago.

RANGES IN ROCKY WASHINGTON, Sept. 4 (If)— Poets and others who talk about "the everlasting hills" may not be strictly accurate. R. Wallace Walter Atwood, president of Clark university at Wor- cester, Mass., said here today that recent , geological research indicated that three Rocky mountain ranges have formed and worn'away during the last 30,000,000 years. "Three distinct ranges of moun- SMALL GRAY CAT DETOURS Alt TRAFFIC IN CAPITAL AT AUSTIN AUSTIN, Sept. 4. f/P) — A tiny gray cat detoured the heavlyest traffic In the capitol the other day. All day and much of the night hundreds of persons tramp through the rotunda on the first floor, to and from elevators, in and out of the big building. The cat. calmly sat down squarely under the center of the dome and sat and sat, while pedestrians for two hour's swung to left and right around It. Where it came, from and what it was waiting for no one seemed to know. Nor was it established where It finally went. It simply got up and trotted away. C- A member of the senate complained recently of the frequency of special sessions of the legislature. Statewide prohibition had been repealed and Governor Allred had said a special session would be called soon. "I haven't had a chance to practice law in a long time," the senator said. "I didn't know it would be like this when I ran for the office. We spent most of the winter and spring here and now here we come back again.'" Ed Clark, good-humored secretary of Governor Allred, Is the object of frequent jests. He enjoys a joke on himself. Some time ago he suggested it might be advisable for the governor and himself to be strapped in their planes on the cross country tains," he said, "have come into existence and passed away since the formations which we know as the Rocky mountains began. "As one great mass was pushed up from the surface of the earth it began to be eroded away by water and wind to form the soil areas about it, and leave only the stumps of mountains behind. These in turn were hoisted upon the peaks of a new upheaval only to again wear away. The third upheaval came and again the lofty peaks were worn down." No exct determination of the height of the ancient mountains can be made, Dr. Atwood said, but they were probably higher than the present peaks. "We have good reason to believe that if the' material eroded away could be put back the old mountains would be 15,000 to 20,000 feet higher than the present ones," he added. Dr. Atwood is one of a large group of scientists leaving today for Mexico City to attend the seventh American scientific congress. He will present a paper on recent investigations of the Rocky mountain range, which he has studied from Alaska to South America.

Governor Allred expressed as- tonlsttment that Clark had been flying without the protection of safety belt and asked if one. had been available.
