Allred of Texas as a federal judge for the southern district of that state. "It's 'the beginning of carpet- bagging," tho rangy Texan shouted. Dlea said Allred was not a resident of the southern Texaa judicial district. "I dldnt thing it's fair," Dies shouted. '"I don't think i's right. I don't approve of it. I think It'a the beginning of a. vici- oua .prlnople." After Dlea had detailed his objections the two Texas senators, Sheppard and Connally, both democrats, said they would not oppose senate confirmation of Allred. Both senators said they agreed •with Dies that a 'resident of the judicial diatrict ahould Lave been named. Both aald they had -so- ommended other lawyers to the president. "I don't think it's sufficient for objection to Governor Allred," Senator Sheppard said. "He'a been an attorney general and governor of Texaa for eight years so he's practically a citizen of the entire state."

He submitted the request In a letter to Speaker Bankhead which asked that the money be made available for expenditure during the remainder of tho current fiscal year and through the year starting July 1. Mr. Roosevelt said tho money would provide, In part, for the defense program he recommended to Congress on January 12. At that time he suggested a $300,- OOOiOOO army airplane procurement program and said approximately $50,000,000 should be made avail able immediately. Today's request for the air corps was $46,442,829. Tho administration said that would abtaln 585 new jombat airplanes. In addition, Mr. Roosevelt requested $1,490,071 for radio equipment for the signal corps and $2,067,100 for armament for the 865 dentlal objection approval. should prevent "I think It would .be an injusr tlce to replied. . him (Allrod)," Sheppard Senator Connally read hla reply .to a aobcommlttee latter, "I do not favor the appointment," Connally'a letter said but added "I have no objection I care to urge as to confirmation," Represenatlve Dlea opening .the plea, recalled that the original house bill creating the additional Texas Judgeship Included a pro- Vision that the appointee should be a lawyer "who la now a real- dent of auch . diatrict."

"Naturally, they don't want to antagonize a man who may be federal judge by opposing him." Senator O'Mahoney (D-Wyo.), member of the subcommittee, asked where Allred lived. Dies replied he lived in Wichita Falls but Sheppard said Allred recently had moved to Houston, within the Southern district, and had spent •eight years at Austin as attorney general and governor. •"How many lawyers are there in the Southern district?" queried Q'Mahoney. . . . More Lawyers Than Farmers. v VWhy, there are more lawyers •than farmers," chuckled Dies. -Dies said the omnibus • judgeship bill could have been blocked In 'the house rules committee, of which he is a member, If there had been any doubt as to appointment. O'Mahoney asked Dies who had given him assurances. "Of course, no one actually could have except the president," Dies replied. "I did not talk with th,e president.

Officials in charge of the tour estimated more than 250 persons were in attend- ice. _ The visiting started at thAEdens ranch where tho party Inspected the modern livestock barns and also viewed some experimental work in the breeding up of cattle. J. N. Edens also related some of his experience In establishing his permanent pastures. More purebred and grade Herefords were seen at the McKlnney and McKlnney ranch, and the party moved on to the R. L. Wheelock ranch where a trench silo was shown In use. Actual experience In the use of tho silage was presented to the visitors by Marvin Mayberry, ranch superintendent. At the Allison and Allison ranch more cattle were Inspected and particular Interest was shown in a feeding project where home-grown feed augmented to make a balanced ration was being used. The final stop on the program was the A. T. Smith farm where A. T. Smith, Jr., a 4-H Club boy, Is feeding out twelve calves as a beef project and is also preparing one animal for the show class at the Fort Worth Fat Stock Show in March. Officials reported the youth has constructed a self-feeder and was using home grown feeds in his project. High praise was given the boy by the visitors for his efforts. He began his feeding last year as a member of the original group who exhibited at the Corslcana fair with two entries, and expanded tho project to twelve head in his second season, officials said.

Dies added it was "the judg- inent of both Texaa aenatora that a resident of the diatrict ahould have the place." Dies said he always opposed appointment of non-residents to any federal positions In hla district, including WPA jobs. 1 "It's a conviction of mine, Dies Shouted, "I'm not going to back down on thla. I do not oppose the appointment on personal grounds but I'm not going to back up on a principle." ,*' Final witness was R. R. Grovey, negro, who 'said he represented •'/the negro citizenship of Houston and opposed Allred's confirmation." Grovey said Allred, as at- K ,. torney general and governor, had tf denied negro citizens their constitutional right of assembly and v "That alone should disqualify him for a federal judgeship," he said that by making Immediately available for army aircraft "The present lag In aircraft production, due to Idle plants," could be corrected. Increasing at Alarming Rate. At that time, he declared that "military aviation Is Increasing today at an unprecedented and alarming rate." Increased range, speed and capacity of planes made abroad, he added, "have change our requirements for defensive aviation." Meanwhile, a republican attempt to bring Secretary Hull before a congressional cftmmittee to dls- cull foreign policy in view of proposed military development of Guam encountered strong opposition. The house military committee was asked to recommend a $4,200,000 program of Increased allowances for reserve officers. The requests came from Col. Stephen A. Park, head of the reserfe officers association, who predicted the reserve corps would be required to provide about 80 per cent of the irmy's officers In an emergency. He said there Is a shortage of at least 20,000 such officers. A. proposal that Secretary Hull testify on foreign policy was opposed by democrats.

AIRCRAFT MAKERS BUILDING PLANESFOR FRANCE PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT SAYS GOVERNMENT HAS KNOWLEDGE OF THE DEAL WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.—(ff)— President Roosevelt said today that United States aircraft manufacturers had agreed, with this 'government's knowledge, to supply France with an undeslgnated number of airplanes. Further, the senate military affairs committee received testimony shortly afterward that an American naval officer had been assigned to co-operate with a French air mlaalon In this' country to buy military planea from private factories. Chairman Sheppard (D-Texas) of the committee said It was his understanding that Captain Sydney Moses Kraus of the aeronautic branch was the officer so designated. An official aource disclosed, meanwhile, that Franco had just oubled a previous order for 100 ghtlng planes from Curtlss- /rlght corporation at Buffalo, N. f. The original order was placed ast year. The President was asked at his resa conference whether steps ad been taken here to facilitate 'rench purchase of planes.

Studies of 19 Texas highways on which fatal collisions most frequently occurred in 1937 revealed that 315 persona had lost their lives at the various locations. Highway patrolmen were concentrated along sections of theao highways with instructions to guard against speeders and reek- jess drivers. During the past year these "death corridors" became comparatively aafe highwaya while the death rate was reduced over 67 percent Where before the rate had been 315 persons, In 1938 It dropped to 134, Texas is the only state that la known to depend almost entirely upon thta type of selective enforcement as a means of reducing traffic crashes. "Our experiment has proved conclusively that firm enforcement at strategic crash points," Garrison aald, "la necessary In order to bring to Texas a lowered death rate." The following table shows the EARNED DY JUSTICE FOSTERJMST YEAR A total of $2,257.60 was earned during 1938 by A. E.

Conference Divided. • Until 1926 all conferences were held in a body at A. and M. College. Conferences were becoming so large that at that time it was decided to hold several conferences over the state. This year's conference theme, 'Living in a Christian Democracy" Is the same as that used at the second national Hl-Y conference held In Kentucky last year. « Members of the conference homes committee have reported that homes for delegates are still needed. With the opening date of the conference rapidly approaching conference officials have that all 'Corslcana residents who can provide a room for two or more delegates for the two nights they will be in Corslcana to notify either the Y.

Tax Plan Condemned. Rep. W. J. Galbreath of Wharton, Senator Joe Hill of Henderson and others have condemned the proposal as saddling the tax burden on the poorer classes. One representative, who would not permit his name to be used, accused the governor of welching on his $30-a-month pension promise. "I learned that If you gtve a bellorlng calf enough rope," Governor O'Danlol said "he would nans himself—so I have been silently watching these bellorlng tax dodgers and giving them plenty of rope." Later In his talk, the governor said: "I selected the transaction tax •because I wanted to get one that would include everybody and if you have been reading the papers I believe you will agree that I did just-what I Intended to do, and, oh, boy, how they have howled." Making Progress. The governor said "We are making some very definite progress on our plans to pay old age pensions, cure for dependnnt children, provide for •teacher retirement and aid to the-bllnd." Proposals on these have been Introduced by members of the legislature. 'As soon as I was elected," the iales to the army.

Asked why the treasury should obtain permission for a French representative to fly In a plane produced by a private company and open to sale to any other country, under present laws, Sheppard replied the committee was "working on that."

The present social security law Is of little or no direct help to them. It Is primarily to these that the pension leaders beckon. Action Would Be Quick Pension advocates argue payment of pensions, once congress set up the machinery, would start within a matter of months and that all the people over a cer- aln age would benefit quickly and substantially. The main pension movements are drawn together In two rival groups— the Townsend group, headed by Dr,. Francis E. Townsend, and the General Welfare association. Broadly the plan of either would work like this: Congress would pass a law Imposing a general tax of two per cent on Income or transactions. The revenue, running into many millions a month, would be dlstrributed equally among all the persons aver 60^ If that was the aged limit set.) Pension backers contend the national Income would boom and the number of unemployed persons would tumble.
