OF SENATOR IS HIS OPPOSITE BATON ROUGE, !#., Sept. 11(/P) t -^Heavy-hearted over the death of Senator Huey P. Long, his boyhood friend, whose political decisions he followed without question, Governor Oscar Kelly Allen, titular heir of the powerful Long political machine, faoes the responsibility of providing a leadership that will keep it intact. The mild-mannered chief executive, who took as much pains to keep out of the spotlight as Senator Long did to catch its full glare, in the emergency has pledged himself to carry on with the principles of his assassinated friend. Like Long, the 52-year-old former school teacher, now none too robust, has come n long way from the red clay hills in Winn parish where he and the senator grew up on adjoining farms. Long's rise, however, was meteoric; Allen's, without spectacle, lioth shook off their early poverty I to become rich, Long through his *, law practice and Allen through ! business ventures and oil operations. Allen gave Long financial back% ing !in liis race for railroad commissioner In 1917, and when Long was elected governor in 1928 and Allen was elected to the state senate, Long made him administration floor leader and later chairman of the highway . commission charged with launching a $30,000,000 road program. Long went to the senate and biusked his friend for the governorship which he won The boyhood friends now sat side by side In ruling the state, Long, the "dictator," and Allen, his loyal ally, a happy combination of opposites till it was broken by the death of Long. 'Governor Allen was born August 8, 1882, in a log cabin on his father's form In Winn parish. He got his early education between crops by . riding a mule from his home to the ' nearest school house. At 16 he was gtyeri a teacher's certificate and with money saved from his teach- Mrs. Weldon Wilson Spencer Corsets Individually designed garments for men, women and children* Ph. 502-VV 645 N.

In stern seriousness, these daughters and granddaughters of the female warriors who fought with fierce fanaticism against, the Italians on the Adua battlefield of 1896 began sharpening their spears and sabres •after Emperlor Haile Selassie accepted the offer of their services. Their leader, the beautiful, tiger* eyed Madame Wayzsro Abbath Charkoze, told the Associated Press they had no fear of Italian airplanes and tanks "These mechanical things can be made by man, but only God can bestow courage and he will enable us to triumph over the Italians," she asserted. "When our husbands, brothers, and fathers see us fighting side by side with them, they will have the courage of lions." Madame Oharkoze, 34 years old, with gleaming eyes and a quick step, is a wealthy landowner, but she has abandoned her home and family riches to defend her country, if need be, against any Italian advance. The women's- legion, dressed in natty uniforms of red capss. khaki breeches, 'leather puttees and Sam Brown belts, submitted an offer to go to the front yesterday and the King of Kings accepted promptly. Their organization, known in Amharlc as "for love of country," has a membership of several thousand, with branches throughout the empire. An appeal to women of the world to fight the "horrors of useless bloodshed" was made by Empress Menen in a broadcast to the United States. Despite the advice of the United States state department, most of the Americans in Addis Ababa were staying here. The Ethiopian government assured Cornelius Van Engert, United States charge d'affaires, that, all Americans wishing to leave could do so. ing, he went for a time to a school at Springfield, Mo., and later to Trinity college at Waxahachle, Tex. He taught for a time after that and then entered the business world where he forged ahead on a program of hard work and thrift. •In his early political career, he served as clerk of the Winn parish police jury and later was elected assessor in 1912. He defeated Senator Henry 'Hardtner, well-known lumberman, to win a seat in the state senate on the Long ticket In 1028. Gov. Allen married Miss Florence Love of Paris, Texas, in 191Z. >- qffiryssM**';'.-'-* r- SENATORREODITTTOBE4TH GOVERNOR IN LESS THAN YEAR ATJSTltf, Sep't. il. f/P)—The resignation of Lee 3. Simmons as manager of the Texas prison system occasioned no great surprise in capitol circles. It had been known he was dissatisfied with conditions surrounding the position, including the saint y and the political setup, and. being independent financially could affcrd to step out whan he wished. The salary, originally $8,000. was reduced to $6,500 by the legislature. Although it cut his salary during an economy wave, the legislature seemed to have unusual confidence in Simmons, listening carefully to his proposals and usually accepting them. Simmons was a member of the committee created by the le!;isal- ture which studied prison conditions in 22 states several years ago and made recommendations which resulted in many changes in prison operations.
