According to Japanese spokesman, such development would benefit western powers by increasing China's demand for western merchandise as well as Japanese.

(.?>)—The Texas house of representatives today sought to compel the senate to give prdmpt conisderation to bills sent over by the house and threatened to withhold action on senate measures until senate rules limiting the first forty days to disposal of emergency legislation were lifted. Representative R. W. Calvert of Hillsboro sponsored a resolution adopted unanimously, directing the rules committee to revise house procedure to ban action on senate bills other than emergency measures submitted by the governor, during the first forty days. "Under the senate rules six mem- bars can block house bills during the first sixty days," Calvert said. "If you have a little oil tax bill or a sulphur tax bill six members can hold up its consideration until it is likely to get caught in the closing rush.

Johnson. Results of the state-wide survey, undertaken by the social welfare department of the Texas relief commission through the county administrators of relief, have been compiled in order that the board of control and the legislature may appreciate tho task confronting the state when federal authorities discontinue providing funds for persons unable to work, as thev have stated they very soon will do. Discontinuance of these funds originally was scheduled for. February 1; however, Harry L. Hopkins, federal administrator, recently announced removal • of such persons would be effectuated gradually. The 55,270 cases represent approximately 225,000 persons, or 20.09 per cent of the state caseload. Un- wiployaWes according to the,, survey were divided into four classes. Thirty-nine per cant were persons than 65 years old who have not been regularly employed and who can not obtain a physician's certificate of .good health. There were 21,682 cases in tills classification. Persons less than 65 years old who are physically or mentally incapable of working numbered 18,26!) cases, or 33 per cent of the total.

The number of employable cases was 219,458, the total case load, 274,575, and the total amount of money granted all clients, $3,946,921,32. "These people won't be cut off the rolls and left to starve." State Director Johnson said. "The Texas relief commission is not going to abandon anybody in destitute circumstances. We won't drop them from cur relief rolls, as many people have bsen lead to believe, but. on the contrary, we will take care of them from state funds until a definite plan has been worked out for their future. "Declaration of federal authorities that they would withdraw financial aid to unemployables was misinterpreted by many to mean that these unfortunates would be abandoned entirely. That assuredly is not the case.' 1 records and names of everyone he might arrest, place in jail or release from jail. The East Baton Rouge' sheriff's office was named by Senator Long Saturday in the senator's "court inquiry" in what he said was a plot to "murder" him. Long tried to show by testimony of Sidney Songy, former prohibition informer, that Fred C. Parker, who has been one of Pettit's deputies, was a member of the "murder conspiracy" he said he hatched against him. Long had an act passed at the December special session prohibit- .ing Pettit from naming any deputies without state approval. It was stated that a provost-marshal's office of military police headquarters, would be maintained by the militia in th e sheriff's department.

AUSTIN, Jan. 28 W>)—The Texas house today refused to act on a bill to prohibit payment of an unfinished In lull hydro-electric project in thn Colorado river and returned the bill to committee for public hearing. The action was taken after bitter debate. Representative Sarah Hughes of Dallas, author of the bill, said the bill was designed to prevent R. W. Morrison, San Antonio utilities operator, from making a huge commission through transfer of thje uncompleted Buchanan dam to the public agency for construction with i public works administration loan. Mrs. Hughes contended that under a contract with a federal receiver for the Insull property Morrison would receive 51 per cent of the purchase price paid by the state authority for the site as commission for aiding in obtaining P.

CORSICANA, Jan. 28 (IP)— William H. "Alfalfa Bill" Murray, former governor of Oklahpma, has returned to the ranks as a private citizen, and has no interest or ambition in politics. The fiery statesman made this known lost night when was interviewed in his hotel room here as he broke his trip to the Mexican herder country for a brief visit with old friends. "I may never re-enter politics. I won't unless it is worth while," Murray said. He is making his trip by automobile and is accompanied by his son, W. H. Murray Jr. "I am going to Mexico for a rest. I don't hunt and fish, and when I need rest I just get off where nobody knows me, and read and rest. That's why I'm going to Mexico. I may even change my name so that I can drop from sight entirely," he 'continued. The ex-governor said that . he planned to continue his trip, by leisurely stages, emphasizing the fact that he meant to sleep late in the mornings, making brief visits at Wortham, Mexia, Buffalo, Austin and San Antonio before reaching the border. "There are some things around Austin I want to show my son, and I may have a quiet look-in on the legislature. I don't believe the Texas bunch is as smart as the Oklahoma gang. Those Oklahoma fellows have been everywhere, and those that haven't are smart enough to compare notes with tiiose who have. "But Oklahoma has a good legislature, and the senate is an especially fine bunch of men," Murray said. Murray expressed grave fears for the safety of the nation if the U. S. supreme court does not approve administration policies, and an attempt is made to double the size of the court and "stuff" it with politicians. He intimated that. if the court held to his views they could not hand down favorable decisions. GOP CHARGES FARLEY HAS GIVEN RARE STAMPS TO CLOSE FRIENDS ' WASHINGTON, Jan. 28. (/I 1 )—An investigation of reports that Postmaster General Farlov has given rare stamps worth a "tremendous" sum to a number of his friends, including President and Mrs. Roosevelt, was asked formally in the house today by Representative Millard (R-NY). Mallard recounted that since the Roosevelt administration took office March 4, 1933, seventeen special commemorative stamps have been issued "on the theory that the people were getting tired of the old ones." Before the stamps were perforated for tearing, coated with glue or offered for public sale, he said, big sheets of them were given by the postmaster general to "a favored few of his friends" as well as to his children, Betty, Ann and James, Jr. Miliard said he agreed with complaints of stamp collectors that this was unfair discrimination, but that he felt "a much more serious situation has arisen whereby an official of the federal government can make unlimited presentations of gifts not purchaseable in tho open market, but which have a value in that market of $20,000." "Prom this it is quite obvious that the monetary value of Mr. Farley's gifts is tremendous," he added. The republican representative asked approval of a resolution requiring Farley to appear before the house postoffice committee and explain. 70 PER CENT OF BIRTHDAY BALL u PROCEEDS WILL STAY IN PAMPA If attendance at the president's i attended the balls to raise a fund Birthday ball here Wednesday night is as large .as expected, Pampa will have a fund of several hundred dollars to draw from in financing the treatment of local cases of infantile paralysis, and possibly of crippled children.

Shepard for the aliened poison murder of his second wife was completed in federal court here today In a little more than two hours. FI.EMINGTON, N. J.. .Ian. 28.— Bruno Richard Hauptmann was confronted today by sketches of a window and a ladder in Jiis own notebook. Ho denied the drawings, and then made adrnt'/iions which virtually absolved the dead Isador Fisch from rue cf thn chief implications of his defense—namely, that he mighf Vmvp copied Hauotmann's handwriting in the Lindbergh ransom notes. Responding to a withering cross examination. Hauptmann admitted lie did not know Fisch, before the time that baby Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr., was kidnaped and murdered. He denied writing the telephone number and address of Dr. John F. (Jafsle) Condon, Lindbergh ransom intermediary, on a wood panel in his home, and on tills his testimony was in direct variance with answers he is alleged to have made to Bronx authorities following his arrest. The accused man also admitted that he withheld from Ills wife his "discovery" that a box which he taid the dead Isador Fisch gave him contained $14,600 in Lindbergh ransom gold certificates. The prosecutor, Attorney Genera! David T. Wilentz, alert to ensnare the German carpenter into damaging admissions, made him read from his notebook, and into the record letter transpositions such as' were found in the 14 Lindbergh ransom notes—among these "hg" for "gh 1 ' in "right" and "ng" for "gn" in "signature." And on a check, it was shown, he had written "senvety" for "seventy." Hauptmann gave his answers, whether damaging or not, in a low, colorless tone. He held his temper through shoutsd queries and through sarcastic implications. He was still calm as luncheon recess interrupted the cross-examination. He admitted that he had seen in Germany the three interlocking circles used as a symbol by the Krupp company, gunmakers. Three interlocking circles were used as symbols in all the Lindbergh ransom notes, which handwriting experts have said Hauptmann wrote, He would not admit, and the prosecutor could not make him admit the drawings in the notebook. Baby Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr., for whose murder Hauptmann is being tried, was stolen on March 1, 1932, from the crib of his nursery in Hopewell, N. J. The state charges he was carried out the window and down a ladder which broke and caused his death. Leading up to the sketches, Attorney General David T. Wilentz asked Hauptmann: "Didn't you stop keeping accounts within two weeks of the birth of the Lindbergh child, and didn't start again until a couple of months after the ransom money was paid?" 'I even diau't xnow the Lindbergh child was born," Hauptmann replied. But this is the fact about the dates, isn't it—July 1930 to August, 1932, you kept no accounts, that's true, isn't it?" T can't remember the day when I stopped." Wilentz brought up Hauptmann's notebook. "There are some drawings there," he said. "Are tney yours?" "No, they are not mine." "How about the picture of that window — that isn't yours, the drawing of that window?" "That should be a window?" Hauptmann asked, looking. "Well, what is it?" "I don't know." "Isn/t that a ledge, there?" "I even can't make out what it is." ' . "But can you make out the ladder there) with the dowel pin?" "What is that?" Hauptmann queried. "Doesn't that look like a ladder?" "Does it?" the prisoner pan-led. "It doesn't look like—" "What is it? A book, a picture, a b.ookshelf, or what?" •"I don't know what it ts." Hauptmann lhad previously admitted ownership of the book, and despite his denials of the sketches, they were adimitHxi to. the record to join the State's long chain - ADMINISTRATION WINS FIRST SKIRMISH ON RELIEF BILL WASHINGTON. Jan. 28. (/P>— More liberal statutory guarantees against the "hazards of life" were. demanded by organized labor today as the capital pre-sed a host of governmental cfhores amid weather unusually frigid for the Potomac's shores. William Green, president of tho American Federation of Labor, told the senate finance committee his organization wanted a min'mum old-age pension of $50 a month and greater insurance protection for the unemployed than provided in President Roosevelt's social security program. Simultaneously, administration forces won their first skirmish with ;l-je opposition on the $4,800,000,000 work relief bill when the senate ap- 'J.-opriations committee voted to begin hearings tomorrow in closed session. Hale of Maine, republican, was voted down on open sessions. Rear Admiral C. J. Peoples, treasury procurement officer, will be the first witness. • At the white house, Joseph B. Eastman, railroad coordinator, conferred with Mr. Roosevelt and. it was made known that Eastman's recommendations for a unified federal transportation agency will go to congress tomorrow. Secretary Dern- told the house military committee it might be "detrimental to national defense" for the government to take over manufacture of all munitions in peace time even though it probably would remove "many objectionable features that may h,ave developed in connection with the munitions industry." His views were given in a prepared statement endorsing efforts to take the profits out of war. of circumstantial evidence against (him. . : Wilentz turned the page . and showed him another picture. "What is that?" "You arei asking me," Hauptmann shrugged. "I don't know what it is." "Well, doesn't that look like a drawing of a window with some sort of dots or marks on it for something? You don't know what it is?" "I don't know what it is." Hauptmann pointed out other drawings in the book and told the prosecutor they were executed by a "little child who used to come in our house and play inside." Q. Then Henckel's did not introduce you to Pisch? A. We met at Hunter's Island. We knowed each other before. Q. Now, Hauptmann, didn't you say you met Fisch before June 1933 to account for moneys you deposited before June? A. Absolutely, not. Q. Didn't you tell the Bronx police that you were sitting with a family named Henckel at the time you meet Fisch? A. I didn't say twice. It came too suddenly. (The Bronx police question). Q.
