The ultimate objective, Eastman said, Is "a system of transportation for the nation which will supply the most efficient means of transport and furnish service as cheaply as is consistent with fair treatment of labor and with earnings which will support adequate credit and the ability to expand as need develops and to take advantage of nil Improvements in the art. Tills system of transportation must be in the hands of reliable and responsible operators whose charges for service will be known, dependable and reasonable and free from unjust discrimination." "The question is," Eastman continued, "what can the federal government do to accomplish this objective? Three general methods appear possible: "One follows conservative lines of thought, with main reliance on private capital and enterprise; the second is bolder and involves a use of governmental power to compel a very radical change in railroad conditions, but still preserves the principle of private ownership; the third departs from tills principle and makes railroad transportation a direct function of the government." 'The report undertakes," says a summary made public by Eastman, "to show whnt can be done under each of these general methods, to determine which is preferable and to work out details of the one chosen, which is plan 1." Among other things, the Eastman report proposes: Immediate laws to regulate buses, trucks and water carriers, including freight brokers and wharf operators. An immediate law providing dismissal wages for railroad employes dismissed or furloughed over eight consecutive weeks. Laws enabling the commission to :ix minimum rail-water rates, establish through routes without regard to how great a distance any •oad may carry traffic; limit the ;ime in which claims for refunds and reparations can be made.

Wilentz attacking the most important alibi she offered for her nusband, asked her: "And so when tbsy (the police) asked you about March 1, you said, 'Uiat.'s too far back, I can't remember whether my husband was with, me or not'?" "When they asked me about the first of March, I believe I said that," she admitted. Hauptmann's own testimonjy ended with re-cross-examination by Attorney General David T. Wilentz, who made him admit that a payroll record did not support his claim that he worked on April 2, 1932, the day of the ransom payment. He also stated for the final time that he could not now say either yes or no as to whether he Iwd written Dr. Condon's telephone number and address on a panel found in his home. "You have a very good mind, haven't you?" the attorney remarked. "Well, I don't think so, not so good," said Hauptmann. -*. CASE REVERSED AUSTIN, Jan. 30. Of)—Thp Texas court of criminal appeals today reversed and remanded the conviction in Bexar county of Frank McGinnis, sentenced to death in the death of "Helen Dorothy McGinnis."

MURRAY AT AUSTIN AUSTIN, Jan. 30. </P>-W. H. "Alfalfa Bill" Murray, former governor of Oklahoma, fulfilled an ambition of years today.

Sensitive About Case He was nervous, profane, and given to talking In his sleep when 11. When the Lindbergh case was mentioned, as it frequently was, he sometimes grew pale and moody, but at other times expressed def- nite opinions and claimed to have strong suspicions.

Not only Is the world famous attraction the first big musical show to reach this territory In many moons and likewise the only revue booked to appear this season, but it marks the first time In history that the Follies, with its original New York and Chicago cast and production, has sallied forth from the large eastern cities for a tour of the country from coast to coast. LOCAL CLUE 'Continued from page 1.1 baby." But, when Informed of his mutterlngs, he cursed end said he had been reading too much about the case. Used Two Names He was known by one name but received his mail under a different one. He burned all of his mail after reading It. He was known by several persons who are now Pampa residents. He spent several days at Canadian en route to New York after his condition improved. He cwned an expensive German camera, which he used Incessantly, and a number of fine guns. He spoke frequently of trapping and care of furs, and had a cushion of undressed seal skins, stuffed with camel's hair. All of this means what? Probably nothing tangible, but connected with the similarity, of pic- lures, warranted making it known, in the opinion of the Pampans who knew the German t. b. patient. Knowing that hundreds of clues are presented every week, and that some of them are the work of "cranks," they were at first hesitant about submitting the data.

Recently some of these stamps were .sold at auction in London, one copy bringing $32.50. At that time .ships were few and far between, the fact that the islands contained important copper mines necessitating considerable correspondence. In 1897 the Great Barrier Pigeongram service was started and a year later the company ticd Its first stamps. A rival company was foinied in 1899 and both continued on the job until 1908 when n cable was laid between the islands and the mainland. Although used copies are comparatively common, those known as "flimsies" do not appear on the market more than once in 20 years, the experts say. It was a "flimsy" that brought the $32.50 in the London sale. Mrs. C. E. Cnnnclay of Skellytown was a Pampa shopper yesterday afternoon. WALLACE WOULD TRY 'ECONOMIC SUPREME COURT' IN ONE STATE BY STEPHEN McDONOUGH, Associated Press Staff Writer. (Copyright. 1!>3R, by The Asnoclnted Press) WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 (IP}— Secretary Wallace, author of a proposal for an "economic supreme court," proposed today that it be tried out within a single state. Declaring that the United States has "some terribly significant decisions to make" within the next few years and that "the people should be let in on the choice," he has suggested creation of a' powerful group of four men who would pass on key questions of national policy and submit them to popular vote. The decision of the people then would be binding even on the supreme court. Considerable criticism has been aimed at the proposal since he voiced it last week. Today the secretary, with) a chuckle, remarked that evidently many critics had not read his plan through. "I said," he declared, "that on such matters as tariffs, debts, and land policy there can be no unanimity of opinion but that we need now as never before some new way to shake our minds awake and a; new means to express more thoughtful resolutions in the light of the facts. "There is certainly no threat to democracy in a plan which would make true democracy possible. Some people seem to fear that an economic council would submit to the people every wild scheme which was proposed by some pressure group. "I do not believe, for instance, that four economic councillors of the type I have in mind—intelligent, soundly grounded, and far-sighted men—would ever approve such a scheme as the Townsend plan ond f.ubmlt it to the vote of the people. Tl(eir job would be to tell the people O the whole truth, with the seamy sides all turned outward." He suggested that some state might try the plan as an experiment,- saying its experiences "would make excellent background for future development." The principal weakness of the proposal, he acknowledged, Is concentration of power in the hands of the president who would appoint the economic councillors. However, he added, the same check would be provided as in the case of cabinet appointments — confirmation by the senate.
