Wardlaw, chairman of the state livestock sanitary commission, Thursday warned stock men. of Texas to take every precaution to protect their herds from possible infection of erysipelas, believed to be nearlng the proportions of an epidemic in the state. Meanwhile, he awaited reports from veterinarians Investigating the spread of the Infection of bog erysipelas. He said that the entire livestock Industry In Texas ia menaced and that there exists a grave danger of human Infection, Upon receiving a report from ADDITION OF NEW MEMBERS IS DEMORALIZING TO ENTRANCE OF SUPREME COURT UNITED STATES By EDDY GILMOBE WASHINGTON, Feb. 7. The nation's most dignified "bal- the laboratories of the livestock commission Wednesday, Wardlaw sent Dr. P. O. Booth, state veterinarian, on an emergency trip to the ranch of T. W. Buck In Travis county. Dr. 'H Schmidt, chief veterinarian of the Texas Experiment Station at Col- .lege Station, will join Dr. Booth there. Reports from the ranch had Indicated that cattle there had shown symptoms of the disease previously confined to hogs. The vlrulency of the Infection will be tested. To Tako Steps Soon. Wardlaw said he expected the return of Dr. Booth late Thursday or Friday and the Information obtained will be used to take steps to avert possible spreading of the Infection to cattle, goats and sheep. Tho infection was first noted In Texas In 1935 and the first virulent, outbreak was noted In the vicinity of Corpus Chrlstl. Now It let"— the entrance of the supreme court justices Into their high-columned, plush-curtained meeting place— is getting a little out of step. The addition of three new members in 16 months has made a difference, of course, and time and practice should polish up the performance. The court clock stands at 12 noon - - - the spectators stir, and their whispering ends - - - eyes focud on the long, white draperies behind the bench - - - but nothing happens. Seconds drag by - - - the supreme court is never late - - - at 12:02.3, the court crier rises, bangs his gavel and starts his "Oyez, Oyez, Oyez." The draperies part on the bearded face of the chief justice - - - Behind him come Justice McReynolds and Justice Brandels, veteran performers who don't get out of step. Over at the left Is another trio —Justices Butler, Roberts and Reed . . -.Over at the right Is the other trio—Justices Stone, Black and Frankfurter—Justice Frank- furteer comes in too close on the hesls of the others.

The newest member, Justice Frankfurter, adjusts his glasses, tugs at his robe, bows to a friend In the room. Justice Black rocks back, smiles, and while Justice Reed is reading from the other end of the bench, turns and says something to Justice Frankfurter. Justice Frankfurter — who was fooling with his tie—leans over to hear. It must be funny, because they both laugh - - - and Justice Black sits back again. The court goes on. At quitting time, Justice Frankfurter gets wedged in as he starts to leavb. And as he steps down behind the curtains, he has to watch his feet. A court attache was optimistic. "Just give 'em time," he eald, "they'll get it down pat In a couple of months."

In many By lanii the Associated Press Wardlaw said the infection had been spread to many sections when truckera hauling Infected animals have dumped carcasses of hogs infected by the disease along :the highways. Dr. F. G. Steinman, assistant state vetlnarlan in charge of the laboratories here, said the disease Is capable of being transmitted •to humans as well as cattle, horses, swine, sheep, dogs, turkeys, birds and fish. The only cure for the disease, it was announced, is a specific serum which is used through Inoculation. Given in successive doses, he said, it also served as a preventative. Humans Not Immune. Humans, Dr. Steinman said, .can become Infected by handling diseased animals if they have a skin break on their hands. Wardlaw pointed out that Texas has only .about 1,800,000 hogs while the livestock population to- .tals around 25,000,000. This demonstrates, he said, the seriousness of the infection spreading to other animals. The commission chairman said 'that, while the livestock commis- .slon is making every effort to lessen the shipment of diseased animals, It does not have funds with which to enforce quaran- Spanlsh Insurgents, conquerors of Catalonia, reached the French- Spanish frontier today as government offlcals abandoned tho Island of Mnorca, apparently a sign Minorca on the British cruiser Devonshire. Earlier, the Devonshire had been reported steaming to neutral waters with government and Insurgent representatives so'they might arrange surrender of the fortified island, the only major Island of the Spanish Balearic group left to the government. France, which has coordinated her policy with Britain's over the Baloarlcs, was said to have given full support to the Devonshire's mission. In Paris, the French governmen' was understood to have tried to urge on defenders of Madrid the futility of further resistance In the one-fourth of Spain they still hold.

AUSTIN, Feb. 7.—(#)— The house of representatives denied today that it was "in open rebellion" Against Governor W. Lee O'Daniel and put itself on record as being friendly to the chief executive. Sponsors of the resolution, adopted on an oral vote, said they wanted to correct the impression among the people that the house was hostile to the governor. The resolution provided that the House go on record as being friendly "towards Governor O'Daniel and expecting to co-operate with him in giving the people a constructive and economical administration." There was little discussion of the resolution. Some members took the position it was unnecessary but none attacked it, Authors of the resolution were Ottls E. Lock of Zavalla and Walter A. Ferguson of Ovcrton, both first-termers. It was adopted after an effort to send it to committee was killed by an oral vote. The resolution pointed out O'Daniel was not a politician and was subject to mistakes in dealing with political questions and that some of his acts had been severely criticized. It added, however, that the house was In sym- athy with many o.f his alms al- hough it might disagree as to methods. The governor's first veto was n a bill by Rep. James C. pencer of Athens to provide for ppointment of a court stenog- apher in Henderson cdunuty. O'Daniel said he took the action at ipencer's request, the author hav- nff concluded after passage of the 111 that it should not become a in the house Rep. Rawlins windy here today.

NEW YORK, Feb. 9.— (^—Intensive training programs occasioned by threat of war are expected to provide Europe's five major powers with regular and reserve air forces totalling some 700,000 men by the end of 1939. That Is more than four times the authorized enlisted strength of the entire United States army. A survey of those European programs today produced these round figures for the respective countries i Italy— 10,000 pilots and a reserve (pilots, mechanics, radio technicians, etc.) of 120,000. France — A goal of an enlisted and officer strength In the air corps of 86,000 by the close of the yc&t*. Great Britain— A goal of an enlisted and officer strength of 100,000 In the royal air force by June. Germany— A total force, flying and non-flying, In the regular air corps of more than 100,000; a reserve of from 65,000 to 70,000 most of whom are reported to know the rudiments of piloting a plane. TOM I. TYSON MAIN SPEAKER CIVITANS I IMFON THURSDAY Russia— An air force, flying ana < non-flying, of at least 100,000 men, and a reserve of at least that many more, thousands of whom have qualified as pilots. The totals are based on estimates provided by European bureaus of the Associated Press and other sources. tlaly, Germany, and Russia have the most comprehensive air training programs, and their air force personnel Is drawn from a reservoir ot youngsters who are taught the rudiments of aeronautics when, or before, they reach their 'teens. Neither Great Britain nor France have anything to compare with the air eaucatlon programs for the youth of those three nations. France and Great Britain depend on regular air force enlistments for pilot and mechanic training. Britain's air force Is absorbing 2,000 recruits a week, and last November 85,000 officers and men were on the books. The surplus personnel is represented by retirements and honorable discharges.

The senate concurred in house amendments and sent to the governor a bill outhorlzlng refund- ng of $1,375,000 in the first series of relief bonds at a rate of interest not to exceed 2 per cent. The >onds now bear 4 per cent Interest. Proponents of the refund- ng measure said it would savo the state $101,000. The house after heated debate voted to print a minority committee report on a bill to make an emergency appropriation of $11,000 for control of the pink boll worm In the Rio Grande valley. The bill -was by Rep. Homer Leonard of McAllen. Rep. Abe. M. Mays of Atlanta charged the appropriations committee had "already made up its mind on emergency appropriations before hearing the bills." He said the requested money was vitally necessary to the protection of the cotton Industry of Texas, adding a possibility of a federal quarantine against infected areaes. Rep. Albert L. Derden of Mar- lln pleaded for the appropriation, saying it might prove to be the only thing standing between the cotton industry and ruin. He added failure to pass the bill now might result in expenditure of a half million dollars later to wipe out the Insects. Rep. Alvin R. Allison of Levelland demanded action on pension legislation "before taking care of the insects," while Rep. Mat Davis of Gilmer said he "would like to help Mr. Leonard get rid of his worms," but thought the prob- cm one for the federal and Mex- can governments. The house previously had voted \gainst printing a minority report. After voting 103 to 39 to reconsider, the motion to print was passed on a voice vote. A selective sales tax bill was introduced by Rep. Pat Dwyer of San Antonio, necessities -were exempted. Three-fourths of the two per. cent tax would go to paying old age pensions and one-fourth to the school fund.

The girls have been organized into a choir under the direction of Mrs. Richard Dockum. They sang two selections for club members. Mr. Tyson explained the philanthropic purposes behind the Foundation, stating that it was Mr. Drane's object to establish a public charitable trust that would endure forever.

Our nero nautical engineers are equal to, If not better than those of any other nation in the world." He blamed limited research ac tlvities for a "slip backwards from America's preeminent posl tion in the aviation world a few years ago, with the roiult tha "other nations have produced mill tary airplanes v/ith narked super i^r.ty in performance " To remedy this, he disclosed plans for additional research facilities at the army's experimental Wright Field, Ohio. «= *w. production, Arnold he expected the program "to take advantage of the good points and eliminate the bad points" of the RESCUE SHIP UNABLE LOCATE VESSEL THAT ' CALLED FOR HELP BRITISH FREIGHTER HAD SENT OUT SOS BUT BEEN SILENT TEN HOURS CHATHAM, Mass., Feb. 9.—W) —Apparently- convinced the Brit-; sh freighter Maria de Larrlnaga i Aad foundered, rescue vessels today searched the stormy North Atlantic for life boats In the hope of finding her crew of 37 European systems.
