Buie Implement Company 207-209 South Beaton - Corsicana SUBSTITUTE FARM PROGRAM BELIEVED DOOMED FOR PRESENT ADMINISTRATION LEADERS SEE LITTLE PROSPECT OF CHANGE THIS SESSION WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.—(/P)— Senator Wheeler (D-Mont) advocated government fixing of farm Prices today as a means of placing agriculture on an equal basis with labor, business and Industry. "After all, everything is on a price-fixing basis except the farmer," the westerner told the senate agriculture committee. "If we go on we will only succeed in reducing tho farmers of this country to a- peasant class." Wheeler made theso comments at a committee hearing on a "cost of production" farm bill offered as a substitute for the present ad ministration crop control act. Despite the trend or evidence administration leaders expressed doubt that any substitute farm program would be enacted this session. "It there are going to be any major changes in the crop control act, I think they probably won't be effective this year," commented Chairman Jones (D-Tex) of tne house agriculture committee. Two factors were emphasized by Hep. Hope (H-Kans), senior minority member of the house committee. "While there Is a great deal of opposition to the present act,' he said, "this opposition comes from such divergent sources thai It seems to me unlikely opponents will bo able to effect any Immediate, major change. "It also seems to me that it would be poor politics for the republicans to advance any substitute program at this time." The administration is expected to offar a few amendments to the present law intended to im prove its operation. One probable amendment wll. deal with commodity loan policies, which have led to sealing of 11,000,000 hales of surplus cotton under government loans to growers. Critics assert this has re tarded sales of cotton both al home and abroad. The administration may pro' pose' to give upwards of 4,000,000 sales of this cotton to growers agreeing to make sharper reductions In 1939 planting than now planned. Another suggested amendment would exempt small wheat producers from strict marketing contro provisions. The administration has hopes of getting othrfr cotton and wheat producing nations to agree on a program designed to adjust work production to needs. World cooperation of this kind, officials said, would make the American farm law more effective In restoring prices. •9 Japanese Report Killing of Five Russian Soldiers TOKYO, Feb. 2.— (/F)— Domel (Japanese news agency) reported today from .Hslnklng,, capital of Manchoukuo, that a Manchoukuo garrison had killed five Soviet Russian soldies and wounded three In a clash 00- miles northeast of Manchull.

The war department announced today Brigadier General Barton 1C Yount had taken general charge of the training of several thousands additional flyers needed In expanding the air corps, General Yount, former commander of the air corps training center In Texas, became chief yesterday of a new training and operations division here. To man the 8,000 or more new war planea for which President Roosevelt asked Congress for funds, the air corps plans to add 2,200 officers and 1,200 flying cadets, and upwards of 25,000 enlisted men, ' Secretary Morgenthau, who administers the treasury's $2,000,000 stabilization fund, denied today It had been used to help Franco or any other power buy military supplies or merchandise In this country, "directly or Indirectly." . Republicans demanded that the senate military committee summon airplane manufacturers to clear up the question of whether army ordera and foreign orders both could be handled.' Want Information. Senator Austin (R-Vt.) said the 'ive republican members of the committee wanted first hand in- 'ormation because this was a vital question in the controversy over proposed sale of the latest type of military planes to France. The projected s«le aroused a stormy debate In the senate yes- :erday, with critics of the Pres- .dent demanding that he state his foreign policy publicly. In Chicago former President Hoover told tho council on foreign relations last night that Mr. Roosevelt has been advancing on an unprecedented expansion of foreign policy which might load to war. An assertion that the domestic armament program would be slowed considerably If planes were sold to France was made by a member of the senate military committee, who declined to be quoted by name. Ori tho other hand, G. Grant Mason of tho civil aeronautics authority, was reported to have testified that oven If the French purchased 60 light bombers, they could obtain delivery long before the army would have funds available for Ita own new craft. Senator Bark\ey of Kentucky! the democratic leader, told the senate during yesterday's argument there was no truth In Intimations foreign sales would retard development of the army air corps to its proposed 6,BOO planes Can Care For All Orders. He declared plants In this country had suffllcent capacity to take care of army needs and fill foreign orders. Senator Clark (D-Mo) pressing for publication of most of the record of the committee's Inquiry into tho projected piano sales to France, was promised Unltec support In this .move by the republican commltteemen. They are Senators Austin, Nye of North Dakota, Holman of Oregon, Gur noy of South Dakota, and Bridges of New Hampshire. All of them said, however, they did not fa vor divulging military secrets. The republicans announced they favored a policy of selling war supplies to all countries strictly neutral.

District JudgT Norman Atkinson said: "I can not credit my ears or cyrfl." District Judge Langston G. King,'said: "He (O'Daniel) soys he believes literally in the Bible, but I have missed that sentiment from my Bible." District Clerk J. W. Mills, a member of the Texas Welfare Ad' ylsory Committee, naid: "Man's Inhumanity to man has made countless thousands mourn, I hope this primitive pronounce ment by Governor O'Daniel will bo the forerunner of a movement tq abolish the death penalty In Texas.' County Court At Law Judge Frank Wllllford read the governor's statement, and used one of tho governor's oft-repeated campaign expressions: "Play Beautiful Texas, Leon." W. E.
