ECONOMY MEASURES OF RAIL COMMISSION PRAISEDJY SENATE LEGISLATURE COMPLETES THE ARRANGEMENTS FOR- O'DANIEL INAUGURAL AUSTIN, Jan. 18.— (/P}— The railroad commission's current campaign to cut its payroll 20 per cnnt gained the praise today of the Texas senate. The upper chamber adopted a commendatory resolution offered by Sen. Morris Roberts of Pettus, the economy-minded chairman of Its appropriations committee. The commission Friday discharged ten per cent of its em- ployes and announced It hoped to bring the total to 20 per cent. Both houses completed preparations for the Inauguration as governor tomorrow of W. Lee O'Daniel. The house suspended its rules so that O'Daniel's first measure to the legislature Wednesday afternoon might be broadcast. The lower chamber adopted a rule providing that final action could "not be taken on conference committee reports on appropriation bills until 48 hours after they had been printed. / Sen. Joe L. Hill of Henderson Introduced a proposed constitutional amendment- providing that any state officer becoming a candidate for governor resign his state office. "The existing system,' Hill /said, "encourages, or at least tempts men to use their powerful official positions primarily as a spring board to jump Into the governor's office." The house's restrictions on lobbyists were modified. The new rule merely provided that each person appearing before a legislative committee make a sworn statement as to all the persons and corporations he represents. The house adopted a proposal asking the state old age pension organization to make a full report 'on the operation of. civil service In that department. The legislature will consider the question of putting all state employes under civil service, Allred Holds His Last Conference Of Press Monday AUSTIN, Jan. 18.—(/P)—Governor James V.

The artificial article Is the equivalent of pure musk, : It was found by accident. Chemists were Investigating the structure of rubber, gelatin and cellulose, which are made of chain-like molecules. Those molecules are like a string of .shakes each hanging to the tall of another. As a rule these materials have no smell. But occasionally an unexpected fragrance was found. It was Identified as coming from molecules which had curled up in. rings, as if chain of snakes had let go of each other and each swallowed Its own tall This difference in structure was the sole reason for the fragrance. The ring strducture, moreover, was like that of musk and the fragrance the same. Formation of the rings In the rubber-like materials was a rare occurrence. By learning how to mako all the molecules behave In this unorthodox manner the chemists produced synthetic musk, . '••'•. Janu'ary_ll, 1989.

SHEPPARD PREDICTS RETURN PROHIBITION IN ANNUAL ADDRESS SHORTCOMINGS OF LIQUOR STATUTES POINTED TOBY TEXAS SENIOR SENATOR WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.— (IP)— Senator Sheppard (D-Tex), asserting liquor control laws "have failed either to control the traf- flo or to promote temperance," predicted today tho return of prohibition, The Texan, known as tho father of the prohibition amendment, addressed the senate on the 10th anniversary of the 18th amendment, a practice he has followed annually. Tho amendment was repealed five years ago. "Every facility known to mod- orn publicity methods has been seized upon by the trade to stimulate tho sale and consumption of that which always had been productive of social abuses of the most serious nature," Sheppard said. "Those abuses are now legion. We find Intoxicating liquors confronting men, women and children with the drink temptation In almost every place where the business of life is conducted. ''Women and children wore denied admission to tho old-time saloon. At present three times as many women and girls are work- Ing In liquor-selling places as there are women students In the public universities, colleges and teacher normals of the country. Women customers of such places are becoming so constant and so numerous that the old problem of tho drinking father has been added tho new problem of the drinking mother.
