He said that wllhin seven or eight minutes of plotting he tried to raise the aircraft warning center by a direct telephone but got no answer. Elliott then used' another circuit and raised a Private McDonald who said there was no one around who knew what to do with the information, Elliott testified. '"Two or. three minutes later," he said, a lieutenant called back and talked to Lockard. He quoted Lockard as saying the lieutenant said to "forget it." (The army Pearl Harbor board has identified this lieutenant as Kermlt A. Tyler, later promoted to lieutenant colonel.) Elliott said he and Lockard left the station about 7:45 a.m. and that he delivered his log of the flight to Lt. John Upson on-his return to camp nine miles away. The Japanese bombs started falling at 7:55 a.m. TTnder questioning by Committee Counsel Seth Richardson, Elliott testified that he and Lockard went back to the station but that no one called there that day to check on their findings. Texas Today By JACK KUTLEDGE AP Staff Writer When Cantinflas cornes to town, it's a ma.lor event in Mexico. Cantinflas (pronounced Kahn- teen'-Plahs and meaning barfly) is a young and very handsome Mexican movie star whose real name' is Mario Moreno. His parents were poor, but Cantin- flas certainly isn't. He's a millionaire. He is Mexico's biggest movie star, and has been called one of the greatest of all Pantomimists by the old master, Charlie Chaplin. Like Chaplin, he, too, depicts the common man. He wears a peon's costume with baggy trousers, white undershirt which also serves as a shirt, badly-beaten hat with no brim, a tattered scrape, and oversize shoes. But he still risks his life fighting bulls. Not only Mnat, but he'll stage fights in small border towns, inland villages, almost anywhere his fans call him. Can you visualize an American movie star doing that? Recently he fought in Matamoros Mexico, across from Brownsville JVO117 Enjoying Our Favorite Oatmeal Brings Me Lovely Dishes, Too! ,*'!• ~ w ***Mr/r\ ^\ \ c«f •.>. x \ . »&$\: '. 4 , *%&£ . f..

It wag a near-riot. Rich and poor were there, despite he twelve and a half peso ($2.50) admission charge. To see Cantinflas, nony Mexicans would willingly- go without a few meals. They actually do. What does he do? In the movies, of course, he makes comedies. In the bullring, he burlesques the dignified, graceful ritual that is bullfighting. But he takes even more changes than a regular matador in doing it. And he kills his own bulls. There are no sUndins. His comedy slays 'em. He dances a waltz in front of a charging bull. 3e prances in a very unorthodox ashion? sometimes losing his pants a dangerous thing with a bull nearby). He insults the animal with slaps and signs. He lies down in the ing, coaxing the bull to do something about it. Sometimes he feigns fright and scampers from the ring like a frightened boy, which is always good for L laugh. The legitimate matador is much like a cat—even when running "rom a bull he must do it in a dignified, indifferent sort of way. American movie companies have tried hard to get Cantinflas to make Ameri3an movies. When he does, you'll see why they love him in Mexico. The boy's got what it takes. Federal Laboratory May Be Established ELSA, Feb. 21—Iff)—Establishment of a federal laboratory to test the possibility of cold storage of Valley citrus and vegetables depends on action of the house appropriations committee, A. L. Cramer snid 'esterday. Cramer testified before the com- nittee last week in Washington, urging an appropriation of $23,000 ;o finance experimental work. TlarcCas'k Under Discussion HOUSTON, Feb. 21—(/P)—Par reaching plnnS for the conservation of oil field flare gns now largely wasted In Texas Gulf coast ftoldr. were under discussion at on nil day joint .meeting of the Texas Railroad commission, oil companies nnd operators here yesterday. The Humble Oil and Refining company, king-pin operator on the Texas coast, immediately moved into the spotlight when Rex Baker, director and general counsel, announced definite plans of his concern to spend $4,783,000 for conserving waste gas. He revealed that his concern already had expended in excess o! $1,900,000 in gas conservation projects in railroad commission district 3 on the coast, largely in the Houston area. In" the course of his remarks. Ha- kcr and members of the railroad commission, exchanged views on the current menacing situation with respect to the possible interference of the federal power commission in connection with plans to conserve gas."Any move on the part of the FPC to extend its powers over the ,oil and gas business in Texas," Baker said, "will sound n death knell for conservation of flare gas, because no oil concern wants to run the risk of being declared a public utility and be allowed a return of only six per cent on Its historical investment, or the original cost of a piece of property." All members of the railroad commission concurred with Baker's sentiments. The lens of the human eye is more rounded in front than behind.
