Longley throughout the night, and this morning notified the truck drivers they would be allowed to proceed If they posted appearance bonds. They emphasized the agreement was for the particular emergency Involving the 100 truckers congregated at Falfurrlas, and announced they were still expecting further relief from Gov. W. Lee O'Daniel at Austin. Blffle said he would represent the truck drivers in court. The shippers said they believed it would expedite movement of the fruit If tho drivers did not attempt to go through the process of fighting their cases, but that the legal machinery would move faster If guilty pleas were entered. Fines ranging from $16.40 to $25 were levied here yesterday against 14 drivers accused of violating the 7,000-pound load limit law. Surplus grapefruit on the trucks of the drivers who wore fined was being sold. In Alice for one cent apiece. WASHINGTON, Fob. 4.—(/P)— Congress began tho second month of the session toclny amid indications that democratic factionalism was developing rapidly into a fight for party control. Some politicians predicted events of the next few weeks would sharpen lines of this struggle, with President Roosevelt carrying on his battle for New Deal "liberalism,' Vice President Garner working quietly a schleftain of "convervative" forces, and both sides thinking of the presidential nomination In 1B40 as tho prize to be captured. There were some signs the democratic split had placed the balance of power in both senate and house In tho hands of the "conservatives," a situation made possible chiefly by republicans gains in the November elections. Republican members, keenly aware of their own possibilities in 1940, have become more active than ,ln any other congress of tho Roosevelt administration, but It is only through tho support of revolting democrats that they must upset President Roosevelt's proposals on specific Issues. The two Issues of foreign policy and national defense are overshadowing all other questions before congress, but the nature and extent of the democratic split may be reflected more quickly In congressional action on other questions. Two nominations made by the prescient already have occasioned bitter protests by some senators. One administration leader has predicted that at least one of the nominations would bo turned down by the senate. That is Mr. Roosevelt's selection of Judge Floyd H. Roberts of Bristol to be a federal district judge In Virginia. If the nomination is defeated, Mr. Roosevelt may censure sharply those voting against It. He said yesterday he would write a letter to Judge Roberts In event of Ita rejection. Sen. Harrison (D-Mlss) also said he saw little chanco for confirmation of Thomas R. Amlle, former Progressive representative from Wisconsin, whom tho president nominated to be a member of the Interestate commerce commission. Amlle's critics accuse him of having "radical" economic views. Mr. Roosevelt told his press conference yesterday he would not withdraw either tho Roberts or Amlle nominations. Even if these appointments are disapproved by the senate, the administration will have a record of winning approval of Frank Mur- Announcements Lost or Strayed 3 .LOST — Jlrtiidlo hull rtoff, fthout 1 ye" oh!, namo Bonn*, from Eureka neighborhood.

Gov. W. Lee O'Daniel could not be reached for comment. While opponents of the law sought immediate relief through Invocation of martial law by the governor, senate committee hearings on bzllls to lift the limit from the present 7,000 pounds to 18,000 and 20,000 pounds were scheduled to begin Tuesday. Son. Rogers Kelly of Edinburg, author of remedial legislation and one of tho leaders in the fight for immediate relief by tho governor, explained the request for martial law would entail no use of troops and no expense to th* state. Kelly said the governor could suspend the present statute only by declaring martial law. "If by invocation of martial law we could prevent mobs and violence, It would be better to declare it now than to wait until there Is serious trouble," Kelly said. Everything Quiet. Col. Homer Garrison, director of public safety, said everything was quiet in the Valley today, A number. of> trucks were reported to have gone through the weighing stations unmolested over the week-end, and Garrison said this probably was due to the fact his men had been on 18 and 20-hour duty and had left their stations for a few hours sleep. Dispatches from Alice said a one-day truce was effected Sunday to permit drivers with overloaded trucks to plead not guilty, post minimum bonds and proceed with their loads. Garrison pointed out, however, that in this event they .probably would bo stopped and filed on again at other points in Texas. J. E. McDonald, commissioner of agriculture, went to tho Valley Sunday to look over tht situation. He, with Kelly and Rep, Homer Leonard of McAllen, had requested martial law for a period of 90 days to permit movement of the perishable citrus fruit from the Valley. McDonald's office attendants said he had advised all questioners he made his request for martial law only as an emergency measure. They said he would not concern himself with the merits of the load limit law, one way or the other, Further, they said he advocated the emergency • action phy to. be attorney-general, James P. Pope to be a member of the board of TVA, Felix Frankfurter to be on the supreme court and Harry Hopkins to be secretary of commerce, However, .the former WPA administrator was not confirmed without long and violent debate. which foreshadowed the subsequent 47 to 46 senate vote to trim $150,000,000 from Mr. Roosevelt's requested $875,000,000 for relief for, the next five months. Several senators said tho relief vote WHR too close to indicn'e whether tho axe would fall on future appropriations. Start Reorganization Move. WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.— (/P)— A bl-partisan movement for a compromise government reorganization program gained headway in congress today. Administration leaders aald they were hopeful a revised program could bo enacted promptly with a minimum of controversy. They asserted President Roosevelt undoubtedly would be willing to make concessions to avoid another defeat on the Issue. The house pigeon-holed the administration reorganization bill last year after it had been approved in the senate. Senator McNary (R-Ore.) the republican leader, said he would be inclined to support a new program giving congress the power to veto any presidential orders which revamped or consolidated government agencies. One of tho chief objections voiced Inst year against Mr. Roosevelt's reorganization program was that It would give the Chief Executive discretionary power to reshuffle administrative units and functions.
