feVfeMWG,-APRIL, 16,. TfiE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, , f <**«* PAOEKIMB WASHINGTON, April 16 (/P)—Informed senators said today that many of the proposals being publicly discussed as compromises for the Roosevelt court bill were submitted privately to the White House weeks ago and have been ignored. Nevertheless, talk of compromise persisted as the Senate Judiciary committee neared the end of its long hearings on the court measure. James E. Freeman, Episcopal bishop of the Washington diocese, was the opposition's leading witness today in what may prove to be the last session of the hearing. He was to be followed by former Senator Brookhart of Iowa, a supporter of the bill. The committee will meet tomorrow in closed session to vote on a motion by Senator Hughes (D., Del.) to close the testimony. Members said the motion probably would carry despite protests of opposition leaders that they have invited a, number of additional witnesses, Senator O'Mahoney (D., Wyo.i said he would join with supporters of the bill to close the hearings. He has remained noncommittal on the bill. . Much of the discussion of compromise centered on a proposal by Senator McOarran (D., Nov.), a pivotal member of the committee, for an unconditional increase of two justices on the Supreme bench. Although Senators on both sides of the court issue criticized the McCarran proposal, there was a strong belief within and outside the committee that eventually a compromise of this kind would be reached. There still was no indication that President Roosevelt would be willing to accept less than the six new Judges provided in his bill if members over 70 do not retire. Opposition leaders said, however, they were receiving indirect suggestions that the chief executive would like to talk to them. Democrats in the Senate wore understood to have submitted many of the compromise proposals to Mr. Roosevelt in writing weeks ago. One of them would permit appointment of sufficient judges to keep the majority of the court at all times under 70 years of age. Another would fix the terms of justices by constitutional amendment. •Hints that at least two Supreme Court retirements might be forthcoming were circulating again among senators. 'Senator Wheeler (D., Mont.), one of • the principal foes of the measure, said in an address at Baltimore last night that the minimum wage and Wagner act decisions ve- nioved any contention that the Supreme Court was a bar to labor legislation. "What excuse can there be, except to satisfy personal vanities, to insist upon packing the Supreme Court?" he asked. "The oldest man on the court is Mr. Justice Brandeis, aged 80 years and going strong. He was leading the van when the attorney general of the United States was lined up with the economic royalists." Flax should be sown as early ns a good seedbed can be prepared and never covered more than one inch deep. International Sunday School Lesson THE EFFECT8 OF INTOXICANTS Texas: Genesis 13:13; 19:23-25; Deut. 32:31-33; Prov. 23:29-32. By Wm. E. Gllroy, b. D. Editor of Advance When we study lessons in Genesis, in the light of modern ideas and controversies, one of the questions that confronts us frequently concerns man's essential nature. Is he at heart naturally evil and "fallen." or is he naturally good, progressing through ignorance and error toward something higher and better, subject to temptation, but not inherently wicked? Calm observation of the whole °LIFE By The Associated Press PANHANDLER WATKINS GLEN, N. M.—There is a robin in these parts which docs everything but say, "Buddy, can you spare a clime?" Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Dedcmi report that each day it taps on the cellar door of their home and, if no food is forthcoming, it files around and taps on the kitchen window. That gets results. GLAD TO MEET YOU DENVER—C. J. Sheuerman, Denver musician, is "chinning" with an old friend again—a valuable vio- in which disappeared 16 years ago at a theater in which his orchestra was playing.

GLASS TARGET RIVEVILLE, Iowa.—G. Banta, a 'armor, staggered to a doctor's office, his hand covering one eye. "I'm shot," he cried. A doctor examined him and turned away smiling.

LESSON IN THRIFT BEATRICE, Neb.—Aw, for two cents — But Woodrow McKlssick, clothing store clerk, didn't punch any noses.

MONTERREY, Calif. (IP)— Foot- ights again blaze in the old adobe structure that was California's tost ,heater.

LOS ANGELES (/P) — Thirteen- year-pld Joan Geyser, a deaf girl of 3t. Louis. Mo., is "taking a trip around the United States by postcard,' 1 she wrote Mayor Prank Shaw. The girl wrote she was unable to travel and was requesting mayors of cities throughout the United States to send her their photographs and autographed postcards. Mayor Shaw complied and sent her a pictorial magazine showing scenes in and around Los Angeles. Kansas soils have lost about 1,000 pounds of organic matter an here each year since they were broken from sod. course of human life would suggest that there is truth on both sides, that man is naturally neither wholly good nor wholly evil, but with capacities for both good and evil, and subject to the direction in which the iippermost influences may guide him. If one doubted man's tendency toward fin and evil, surely he would _ find the evidences of it in the role that alcohol and similar destructive agencies have played in human life. The history of man's degradation through alluring things that have affected his senses and destroyed his self-control is not confined to any particular period or time, people or place. A study of modern primitive communities reveals that native races have found their own forms of Intoxication, and the use of intoxicating beverages seems to go back to the very childhood of such races. Our temperance lesson is based upon a reference to Sodom and its destruction, and to a further reference to Sodom found in Deuteronomy, witli the whole teaching summed up in the single verse from Proverbs. "At last it biteth like n serpent, and singeth like an adder." The name of Sodom and the men of Sodom are associated in Biblical history with evil practices that go far beyond indulgence in intoxicating liquor; and it would be an unjust imputation against those who are not total abstainers to suggest that the use of intoxicating liquors is inherently or inevitably associated with the sins of Sodom. But it is an incontrovertible fact that in the wide range of sin and evil, liquor has been a common or associated factor. Its tendency is to destroy restraint and self-control, to blunt the moral consciousness, and to weaken the will. The llquol habit and the liquor traffic have in them the seeds of destruction, and the fact that some are strong enough to prevent this destruction in themselves, in their home lives, and in their family circles and immediate environment, does not alter the fact of the general tendency, and the results in Individual lives and communities that have come from the use of intoxicants. The writer of the ancient proverb was right, and no proverb has been more fully confirmed during the generations of human life since his day, than that strong drink is raging, and that, at the last, it biteth like a serpent. There is one thing that ought to be recognized today; that the way of abstinence never weakened the will or lessened the effectiveness of any human life. It is at least a safe and wise way. M. P.
