T^- SAFEGUARDING EASY MONEY Etfery. Texan who plans to purchase securities of any Kifid should ascertain before making the purchase, Whether the seller is registered and licensed by the state department, Secretary of State Gerald C. Mann asserted in discussing the provisions of the new Texas law designed to put a stop to the sale of worthless se- Curities. Under this law stocks, bonds, certificates of interest in oil and gas properties, and various other fortes of paper supposed to represent value, are defined as securities. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been taken away from Texans in recent years through mail fraud promotions and the smooth talk of salesmen who knew their wares were worthless. Quack medicines and bogus stocks are still-the best sellers with the gullible, according to Karl A. Crowley, in charge of the federal government's efforts to prevent mail' frauds, who says cure-alls and get-rich-quick stock Bre the most attractive bait to lure dollars from socks and savings banks. * There are no new swindles, Crowley says; just variations of old rackets. These rackets have been worked ; so long and so thoroughly that suckers should refuse to bite, but "they always come back" is the slogan of the mail fraud promoters. The government statistics place Texas at the top of the list of states contributing most liberally to stock swindlers, who are he only ones who ever get rich out of the quick turnover schemes, which they promote. During the past year, government officials point out, more than 100 mail fraud promoters were arrested and prosecuted in Texas. All but two of them went to prison. With the federal agents diligently seeking to prevent mail frauds, and state officials enforcing the new blue sky law, the "pickings" in Texas should be much less lucrative.—Texarkana Gazette. Duce Calls 50,000 Troops To His Colors ROME, Sept. 12. (if)— Premier Benlto Mussolini's comblfig- of Italy for Its best available soldiers brought an Irrevocable call to the colors yesterday for 50,000 more men. Military circles believed this would be the last draft necessary to carry out H Duce's promise to arm one million men before October. The call, reaching far back to the military class of 1900 (men born In that year), was Issued in a series of war ministry decrees published In the official gazette. The summons was taken as an Indication of Mussolini's determination to forsee that all Is In readiness to meet a long war—either in Africa or In Europe—with Italy's most experienced men. The decrees demanded mobilization of radio-telegraphic experts of the class of 1910, engineers, first-aid experts and ambulance drivers of the class of 1912, and those men of the class of 1913 who were exempted or partly exempted from former military service. • All non-commlsisoned officers of Infantry, artillery and engineering who have been in retirement from the classes of 1909 to 1910 Inclusive were ordered to present themselves for a 23-day period of Instruction. THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON -BY MODNIY OUTOHI NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON.—Policy makers of the administration are worried about the U. S. Supreme Court, of course. But to many thousands of federal employes, who are human even as you and I, the nine old justices begin to loom as so many figures of ill omen. Powerless to do anything about it, employes whose jobs are endangered by disputes as to constitutionality of acts'.which created their agencies nevertheless are reaching in terms of subdued jitters and many covert efforts to obtain transfers to safer harjbors. A by-product of it all is that many file clerks and) stenographers to whom the Constitution was once only a name are now so full of information about it that they feel competent to debate the interstate commerce clause and the delegation of power issue with Borah himself. The AAA, which is getting nearer and nearer the high •court, has more than 6000 workers as intimately concerned with interpretations of Paragraphs 1 and 3, Section 8, Article I, as any lawyer, or even the president 'himself. ' TV;A', with nearly 17,000 on, the payroll, rests largely 'on the. government's right to develop power frpnv navigable streams for distribution to private users. About a 'hundred employes of the National Labor Relations Board ;,who-have been hanging on inactivity through' the summer Awaiting for the new Wagner act to get in operation are thinking in terms of the commerce clause. ; * # * * v' New agencies, such as the Economic Security Board— which may have 20,000 or more employes some day— the Guffey act's coal board, and the Railroad Retirement Board must worry about the court as well as the fact that Huey Long filibustered them out of funds. Just think what a dog's life the staff of the Railroad Retirement Board has ',been leading. Booted_ out some months ago, when; the court held the first retirement act invalid, most of the boys and girls aimed to return when new legislation was passed to get around the court's objection. ' '"'"•I 1 *****! Then Huey blocked the funds and! even if Roosevelt finds the money for the board, the supreme court may come along and fire the "staff" all over again. NRA stands as the local horrible example of what may happen to employes when the court speaks. Its 5200 men and women have dwindled to 2800, and a thousand more, including about 700 in the field, will be going soon because the Walsh bill providing wage-hour codes in government contracts failed) in a House committee. * * * * Those two very bright boys, Ben Cohen and Tom Corcoran, who wrote and piloted the • administration's securities, stock market, and holding company bills and were attacked as administration "lobbyists" in the House, are getting set for court attacks by utilities on the holding company law. . Cohen could have been appointed to the SEC with a special assignment to administer regulation and dissolution of holding companies. But he preferred to stay outside and "brain trust" on legal defense of the act. He personally approved for the job J. D. Ross, head of the successful Seattle municipal power system for many years and an expert on the power business. BARBS "Anything Goes" is soon to be made into a movie.

Interference in Family Quarrel Causes Slaying FORT WORTH, Sept. 12 (/P)— Detectives concluded today that Sherman Durant Davis' Interference in a family quarrel brought about the fist fight which resulted yesterday in his death in a Fort Worth hospital. A 26-year-old man who fought with Davis on Monday night is thought to be in the Louisiana oil fields and his father has left Fort Worth In search of him. Officers believe he will voluntarily return when he learns of Davis' death. Davis, 34, a stockman of Paris, Texas, died of a fractured skull soon after he became ill in his North Side hotel room Wednesday. At first he was not thought to be seriously injured in the fight. City Detective Howerton, concluding his Investigation, summed up the case as follows: Davis was riding in the rear seat of an automobile Monday night with a man and his wife. The couple began to quarrel and Davis attempted to act as mediator. This started an argument. The two men went behind a church in Hosen Heights. nOe of them returned a few minutes later with several teeth brdken out. Friends found Davis on the ground.

CAPITOL CHATTER BY CHARLES E. SIMONS AUSTIN, Sept. 11. (£>)—The question asked by Governor Allred when the Centennial appropriation bill was before him for signature — "Where is the money coming from?" —may prove the deciding factor In appropriations for old age pensions. Governor Allred placed the burden of providing revenue on the legislature then in a strongly worded message; In view of the state's large deficit and dim prospects for Increasing revenue it is likely the legislature will chart a wary and economical course on pensions. Some estimates place the cost of old age pensions at $30,000,000. That is about the aggregate cost if all persons over 65 who met the residence requirements of the amendment and were allowed the maximum of $15 a.month. Few seasoned fiscal officers,' however, expect the legislature to appropriate that amoutat because the money would have to be raised from some source and almost any increase In tax burdens likely would react unfavorably. Most estimates place the total cost of the pensions at $5,000,000 to $10,000,000. Some estimates are as low as $3,000,000 due to a belief the legislature ,will limit pensions to indigents and throw other restrictions around the appropriation. Although more than 200,000 persons in Texas are over 65, the number who would receive pensions is estimated at 30.POO or less. If each was allowed the constitutional maximum the cost would be $5,400,000 annually. If the federal government Contributed half and the same maximum was maintained, the state's share would be $2,700,000. . The legislature may direct that revenues from liquor taxes carry the burden of old age pensions. Re- this at witft the more setting the anwuht at about |4,» 000,000. Seine prohibition leaders believe It may have been suggested during the recent constitutional election thai payment of old age pensions depend largely on making easily available a source of revenue and that if prohibition repeal carried It would open the way to a ready pension fund income.
