Brevitorials IN pre-historlc times, men had the silly idea of chasing a round object, now called a ball. One modern game, played professionally and sandlot, day and night, and on Sundays, is called baseball. Another, involving hitting—and missing—of a smaller, harder ball is called golf. Slightly flattened and elongated 'is a similar object called football, which also is a game of some prominence in this country. Squared spheres—not mathematically—and dotted on the side Efre used in another game, which is especially popular in the clan of Halle Selassie. Then we also have handball, Softball, jal-alffi, tennis, ping- ppng, and business, the latter being distinguished by "hitting the ball." WASHINGTON, Sept. B <fP)— The statement by President Roose- vct, made public today, that the new deal's "basic program" had reached "substantial completion" end that a "bicathing sp-11" for industry fs here, was hailed by lc"c"2re of his party. Disagreement us to the value of ;hc administration program in business Improvement, however, was expressed by opposition leaders. Similar assertions had already been made by some of those familiar with his ideas but they appreciated more public attention would be paid by word from the president himself than what they had said, It was noted that the stock market moved quietly higher nt the start today. Skepticism was evident in some opposition quarters, however, where the new deal has been described as hostile to the constitution itself. In general, "some leaders of both parties preferred to withhold detailed public comment for a study of the unusual letter to Roy W. Howard, publisher of the Scripps-Howard newspapers. "If it hadn't been for the new deal, recovery would now be much further advanceri," remarked Rep. Snell, the republican leader, at Potsdam, N. Y. Republican independent supporters of the new deal, to the extent represented by Senator Morris of Nebraska, considered the Roosevelt position "unanswerable." "It states the whole question, he said.

MIAMI, Flu.., Sept. 6.—The possibility of pestilence—eternal aftermath of wholesale death —confronted authorities today as the task of finding more bodies In Florida's hurricane-ravaged Keys went laboriously forward. Wearing gas masks, armies of men moved Into the hurricane-devastated. Florida keys for the gruesome task of bringing back the dead, already totaling 258, according to a Red Cross estimate. There were conflicting reports as to the exact damage and death dealt by the hurricane, which after howling through the keys, generated storms in other states to the north, killing a woman, injuring 12 persons nnd causing extensive property damage. The Red Cross announced that of 817 war veterans caught by the hurricane as they were engaged in construction work on the keys, 320 were misting today and 144 bodies had been recovered. Seventy civilians were missing throughout Florida. From the National Guard in Atlanta 500 additional gas masks were ordered for the task of removing bodies. The disposition of the bodies, presented a problem. Governor Sholtz of Florida said he had made no plans for crema- ion of the bodies where they lay, and FERA headquarters in Wash- ngton issued orders that those recovering the victims should not jurn them. The immediate burial of 90 bodies —42 of fhem .unidentified—was demanded by Miami authorities. The bodies were brought to the city yes- .erday and the day belore. Their resting place will be Wooolawn Park cemetery. Wooden coffins will hold ;he bodies.. The question which officials sought to answer today was: Italians Would Sear Blacks With Liquid Fire • /CERTAIN OF the intelligentsia of some climes have for a considerable time grown too tired to run after balls, so they train ponies to carry them. This ball gatae is called polo, Some of the men-about-town have been reading about Will Rogers and his polo and have been bitten badly by "the bug." That was months ago. Plans now are well advanced for launching the game here this fall. Gilmore Nunn of The NEWS has Invited all enthusiasts to meet at the newspaper office Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock to talk It over. Several Pampa men will tell of plans for inaugurating polo on an inexpensive basis. Amarillo and Lubboek are similarly going ahead with plans. .•pRANKLY, WE don't know much :, about polo. The nearest thing 'we ever saw to it was donkey baseball, which has some remote resemblance, with the accent on re- mpte. , Sut we've played golf and franjcly we like the Idea of riding after the ball. There's another fine thing, we understand, about polo—there's no 'rough; it's all fairway. Another nice thing, if you can "take it,", is tJjat there are few rules. It's just about like "shinny," and what are a few broken heads and arms among, cronies? , , . Personally, now that we are presumably to have cheap 'bus transportation in Pampa;, we're going to ask our household tiletator if we can sell the car and buy & polo pony. We may not play any polo, ..but • our intentions are serious.

Y., Sent. 6 «P) —President Roosevelt today declared the new deal's "basic program" had reached "substantial completion" and a "breathing- rpell" for industry "Is here—very decidedly so." He asserted further "than at this moment conditions are such as to offer substantial and widespread recovery." The president gave his views In a letter to Roy W. Howard, publisher of the Scripps-Howard newspapers, who reported fears of business men and asserted, "there is need to undo the damage that has been done by mlslnterpreters of the new deal." In perhaps his most complete exposition of his administration and his ideas for the future, the presi- ent said he claimed no "magician's and," but "we do claim that we ave helped to restore that public jnfidence which now offers so sub- ;rntial a foundation for our re- overy." 'I take it." he wrote, "that we are 11 not merely seeking but getting ne recovery of confidence, not merely .the confidence of a small roup, but that basic confidence on le part of the mass of'our popula- on, in the soundness of our eco- omie life and in the honesty and ustlce of the purposes of its eco- :omlc ruJes and methods."

Howard discarded- hostility-from financial racketeers, public exploiters, and the sinister forces pawned by special privilege," but asserted that many business men of 'patriotism and sense of public service" believed the wealth tax ill "revenge on business" and expected a "recess from further experimentation until the country can ecover its losses." Mr. Roosevelt replied that he would disregard "skeptics" and those actuated by a spirit of po- itical partisanship," but he believed t a "duty to clarify our purposes" o "critics who are honest and non- mrtisan and who are willing to dls- iuss and to learn." Informing Howard that the 'breathing spell" of which he spoke s here, the president stated: "It is a source of great satisfac- ion that at this moment conditions are such as to offer further substantial and widespread recovery.

The parade completed, the "boys in gray" prepared to furl the "stars and bars" of the Confederacy unti next year when the remnant of Robert B. Lee's forces will gather at Shreveport,. La., in forty-sixth annual reunion.

Magistrate Brodsky held a sixth defendant for assault and violation of the Sullivan gun- carrying law. CITY TEACHERS, 115 IN NUMBER, HOLDMEETING New Instructors To Be Announced Soon NEW YORK, Sept. G (fP)— Bitterly denouncing the Hitler regime, Mag- strate Louis B. Brodsky today dismissed charges against five defendants who participated in the Bremen •lot last July 26. He held for grand jury action a sixth defendant for assault and violation of the Sullivan gun-carrying law. After reciting the facts of the disorder, during which the defendants tried to tear down the Nazi flag from the,mast of the Bremen, Magistrate Brodsky added: "Nor am I mindful of the fact that to these defendants, again rightly or wrongly, the prominent display of this emblem even carried with it the same sinister implications a's a pirate ship, sailing defiantly into the harbor of a,nation one of whose ships it had jusl scuttled, with the black flag of piracy proudly flying aloft." With regard to four of the defendants — Arthur Blair, William Bailey. William Howe and George Blackwell — the magistrate ruled their presence aboard the German liner did not constitute unlawf u assembly. As to the fifth defendant Vincent McConnack, the court helc there was a variance of testimony which caused doubt that McCormack struck PetectJve Matthew Solomon.

BRITAIN AND FRANCE BOTH ON GROUP AT GENEVA By JOSEPH E. SHARKEY Associated Press Foreign Staff GENEVA, Sept. 6. </P)—The council of the League of Nation* voted today to appoint a snb-com- m it tec of five countries to deal •with the Italo-Ethioplan crisis. The sub-committee will comprise! France, Great Britain, Spain, Turkey, and Poland. Apparently the agreement Jndl-* cated withdrawal of the Italians from a reported position that Italy should be included in such an important body, In view of the fact that she, like Great Britain and Prance, Is a signatory of the 1908 Ethiopian treaty. It was understood that Baron Pompeo Alolsl, chief Italian delegate, had approved the composition of the sub-committee, although he might abstain from voting on It when the question came before the league council. The council approved the project of a sub-committee in a private session. Baron Alolsl, despite unsubstantiated rumors to the contrary, was present in the inner room. Also present was Tecle Ha- wariate, Ethiopian chief delegate. The private session lasted only 26 minutes, then the delegates changed room's to open a public session. > Turk Is President Tevflk Rustu Aras, foreign minister of Turkey, will act as president of the sub-committee. Just before the session opened, an Italian spokesman said that Italy's objections to the Ethiopian aetivies in the League had been largely overcome by a decision on the part of Ethiopia definitely to make Hawarlate its official delegate. The Italian added that Italy was especially Incensed because yesterday's attack In the council on Italy had been delivered by a non- Ethiopian, Prof. Gaston Jeze, a French lawyer. He said that if an Ethiopian had made the same statement, it Would not have the same importance. • It was indicated that Jeze probably would continue to speak at council meetings, but always as a substitute for Hawariate. Locked Door Confuses A locked door caused momentary confusion when the private council session began. Hawariate had been talking outside with Premier Laval of France and Anthony Eden of Great Britain. The trio, summoned to the inner chamber, was unable to enter until an attendant arrived with a key. When the door finally was swung open, there was an elaborate exchange of bows, Laval finally insisting on the Ethiopian preceding him and Eden into the room where the Italian and other officials delegates awaited them. The public session immediately improved the project passed in the private meeting although Baron Alois!, as had been predicted, refrained from voting. He was not present at the coun* Sec ETHIOPIA, Page 8 Marine Band Not To Play in City Efforts of The Pampa Daily News to bring the United States Marine band to Pampa for a concert have been unsuccessful.

WALL STREET GREETS LETTER OF FDR WITH SIGH OF RELIEF NEW YORK, Sept. 6. (/P)— Wall Street greeted President Roosevelt's announcement today that a "breathing spell for industry is here" by breathing a big sigh of relief. Leading bankers and industrialists were chary of formal comment, but a number 1 said privately that relief from the uncertainties arising from far-reaching reform measures was what business most needed for repovery. The stock market finally turned upward, after a morning of hesitancy, and scored numerous gain? of $1 to $3 a share in steels, motors and miscellaneous industrials. Among the few who commented publicly were F. B. Williamson, president of the New York Central, who said the breathing spell policy "would be very helpful to business." Less enthusiastic was Roger D. Babson, noted business statistician, who said in , Boston that business needed more than a breathing spell, that the budget be balanced, taxation reduced and living costs kept down.
