EVENING, APfclL 16, 1937. TUB PAMPA DAlLff NEWS, Texas PAGft Nlfffl Mexican Victim of Inte^Union Labor Strife Beyond collective bargaining, or hourly pay rates, or the merits of this plan of unionization or that, •lies this Mexican worker. His hat and coat will not be needed again; soon someone else will tend the machine beside which he died. Labor union rivalry, carried to its last bitter conclusion, brought death to this factory at San Martin, Texmelucan, Mexico, when conflicting organizations, the Confederation of Workers of Mexico and the Regional Confederation of Mexican Workers, fought each other fiercely through the Dlant. Government troops had to quell the feud, and this man was one of fiisht, who 1917 Anti-War Congressmen Meet as Tanks Rumble IEIDLIIEI LONDON, April 15 (fP)—A nonintervention subcommittee today fixed midnight, next Monday, for putting into operation wide control schemes to halt the flow of men and arms to Spain. The 27-nation "hands off Spain" committee immediately appointed another subcommittee to consider plans for the withdrawal of volunteers now fighting in the Spanish civil war. The nonintervention scheme calls for naval patrols of the Spanish coasts and establishment of agents on Spain's frontiers to prevent foreign arms and volunteers from reaching either side in the civil conflict. The British government today followed up its overwhelming parliamentary victory on its conduct in the Spanish civil war with a renewed warning to Insurgent Generalissimo Francisco Franco that Britain would tolerate no interference with her ships at sea. The cabinet, cheered by the 345 to 130 vote of confidence after last- night's stormy debate In the House of Commons, stood firm on its policy of refusing to recognize the Franco regime as a belligerent. As If in answer to laboritc and liberal charges of "cowardice" and aiding the Insurgents to "starve out women and children," the government sternly warned the Insurgents they would be held responsible for any damage to British merchantmen. How far Britain wns prepared to go in such an eventuality was not disclosed despite the bitterly sarcastic question of former Prime Minister David Lloyd George: "What do you propose to do—sue Franco?" The renewed warning to Franco, outgrowth of the determined opposition effort to censure the Stanley Baldwin government for refusing to convoy food ships Into insurgent- blocked Bilbao, indicated Britain still held an apprehensive view of the international dangers in the situation. T US Eli TO PUSS BILL COURT WASHINGTON, April 15 W) — Administration spokesmen made it clear today that President Roosevelt was campaigning for his court reorganization bill with as much determination as before the Wagner act decisions. Statements from three cabinet officers emphasized that the court's 5 to 4 verdict upholding the labor law had not interrupted the efforts to "Inject new blood" into the Supreme Court. Evidence of additional pressure In the Senate Judiciary committee to close the long hearings on the court bill was another indication that the administration was urging its enactment. Members of the committee friendly to the bill, led by Senators Hughes (D., Del.) and McGill (D., Kas.), were fighting openly to shut off the hearings Saturday. Paul Shipman Andrews, dean of the Syracuse law school, told the committee in a prepared statement today the President's bill was "a long step toward destruction of our form of government" and was quite unnecessary. Andrews also criticized some of the substitutes advanced by foes of the Rosevelt bill, including the Wheeler-Bone proposal to permit Congress to override the court and suggestions for requiring more than a majority vote to invalidate legislation. fflEIT PROSPECTS (IT PEHTON EXCELLENT PERBYTON, April 15 (XP)—Ochll- tree county is estimated to have 300,acres of wheat with moisture and growing conditions excellent.

Approximately seven inches of moisture has fallen in this county since Aug. 1. 193G. with subsoil moisture ranging from 9 to 40 inches for the period. County Agent J. T. Stovall estimates that only five per cent of the total acreage planted in wheat was lost by wind erosion. ANTI - NAZI FILM IS SHOWN IN FAMED CHURCH BERLIN, April 15 m—Nazidom, hitting out at any direct or Implied criticism from abroad, struck at American churches today for allowing "vicious machinations under the cloak of religious observances." The Inspired Nazi press lossed furious tirades against the showing in the Riverside Memorial church in New York of an anti-Nazi film seeking to raise $400.000 for the relief of Christian German refugees. The inspired Nazi press loosed fur- showed their common origin, carried such headings as "Anti-German Lying Film!" and "Jewish Emigrants Stirring Up Hatred Before the Altar!" The official German news agency. Deutsches Nachrichtenburo, said, in discussing the film which has Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdlck. pastor of the Riverside church, for its chief figure: "Tills film reveals with terrible clearness the unchristian methods with which a new anti-German drive is to be launched in the American churches by a small un-American clique whose aim is to misuse American religious sentiments for nefarious ends." The Kreuzzeitung, which retains some of Its traditional religious standing, professed "pained indignation," and added: "We can not believe the people of the United States do not realize' whither these vicious machinations under the cloak of religious observances must tend." The paper expressed the hope the case would not "tear the inherent '. friendship of the American people for Germany." At the same time the press played up the lynching to two negroes at Duck Hill, Mass.. sparing their readers none of the details of the torture. The press in its anti-American campaign also has stressed disastrous economic consequences of the strike wave in the United States. The attacks on American churches, economic and living conditions, however, was just one phase of the widespread onslaught on all anti-. Nazi activities. BE NICE TO ME, BABY FORT SCOTT. Kas.

Baflalo> N - While marching soldiers and rumbling tanks coursed Washington streets celebrating Army Day on the twentieth anniversary o f America's entrance In the World war, a little group of wartime Congress members met nearby to commemorate their votes against the 1917 war declaration. Of the 56 Senators and Representatives WASHINGTON, April 15 (/P) — Chairman Connery (D., Miss.) of the House labor committee predicted flatly today Congress would write new labor legislation at the present session as a result of the Supreme Court's decision on the labor relations act. Connery said he still believed the best solution to the unemployment problem would be a 30-hour week for all industry. He added, however, he was not "tied to the proposal." "I believe undoubtedly there will be legislation adopted in the House on minimum wages, maximum hours arid the abolition of child labor," said the co-author of the Wagner law! Connery said the first labor legislation brought up probably would be the Ellenbogen textile bill, on Which a labor subcommittee has been holding hearings. Informed persons said President Roosevelt had favored enactment of that measure to set up a "little NBA", for the textile industry. There was some uncertainty, howevsr, whether the Supreme Court's decisions had altered the chief executive's views. In the. light of the decisions broadening the interpretation of the interstate commerce clause of the constitution, Connery said Congress could legislate to prevent interruptions of the free flow of interstate commerce and also to control "recurring practices" which cause such, interruptions. "Low wages, long hours and child labor," he asserted, "are the nwst frequently recurring practices which cause labor disputes and interfere wtih interstate commerce. That's what men strike about." ,_ Whatever legislation is adopted lowai'U • sliw'UmUig working who braved bitter attacks because of their stand against war with Germany, only eleven shown above were able to meet for the Washington reunion.

"There should be no wage differentials, however," he asserted. "No $15 for the north and $11 for the south. I can see no justification for such discrimination." ^ Both Baer and Farr Figure to Win London Bout LONDON, April 15 W)—Prom the pre-battle statements of Maxie (Playboy) Baer and Tom Parr, it appeared today the referee was the only man who could possibly lose when the two meet for 12 rounds or less tonight in White City arena. Said Baer: "Sure I think I'll win. I've never been so keen to get into a ring before, even counting when I fought _for the championship. I'm really ser- 'ious now. I'm going to leave nothing to chance. "I mean to end the fight as quickly as I can." Farr muttered something about "not being worried by the American bluff," then added. "All I can say is that it's just another fight for me. I'm confident that I can come out on top and prove that British heavyweights are not so bad as they are painted." More certain winner than either the curly-headed former heavyweight titleholder or the British Empire champion was the promoter. A capacity crowd of 14,000 was assured, with a gate approaching $100,000. EVANSVILLE, Ind. (/P) — That movie 8-year old Hal Dupin attended cost a pretty penny.
