i fUESOAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 5, 1935 "~~BG IP IT FUST F MacCRACKEN DECISION IS UPHELD BY COURT WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 UP)— I Congress, after nearly two years <?f playing second fiddle, was stretching a somewhat hesitant lland toward first violin today. A growing tendency, noted by many observers, to debate, change and, in one notable case, even to reject the plans and desires of the executive is fast becoming an outstanding phenomenon of this second new deal congress. The atmosphere on capital hill these days is markedly different from the early days of the administration when, with a banking col- THfi PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Painpa, TexSg lapse to cope with emergency to face, and an acute the legislators passed administration bills swiftly and without many questions. Along with this re-wakening of a spirit of criticism have come two supreme court decisions re-aserting traditional powers of congress. They have served to call attention again to the powerful role assigned to the legislative brancl), under the constitution. The. latest was the MacCrackcn decision yesterday, putting beyond doubt the senate's right to jail a man for contempt. Senators, notably Wagner (D., N. Y.), looked upon thsi as a "healthy .thing," .strengthening the senate's hand in investigations. A decision with much bearing on the relations between the legislature and the executive was the one wiping the oil clause from NRA as too broad a delegation of authority from congress to the president. To the senate has fallen the leading part in the renaissance for con- gressjonal criticism—If such it should turn out to be. It was that branch which, against the desires of< the president, rejected American adherence to the world court in a quick shift of sentiment wl>ich surprised observers. It is in the senate, too, that the Roosevelt $4,880,000,000 work and relief bill is facing delays despite thje. pleas'of administration officials that fast action is necessary to replenish relief coffers. Senators Glass (D., Vs.), who. with some other senators, dislikes some provisions conferring wide powers on the...'administrative branch of the government, only yesterday said there was "no doubt" there would bq. "modifications" in committee. The house had passed the bill swiftly, though only after "revolting" members hod obtained some relaxation of what they colled "gag rule," as well as some other modifications. HIS BROTHER, • FLOYD ALSO DODGES 200 BULLETS DALLAS, Feb. 5. (/P)—Uncannily, Raymond Hamilton, the southwest's ranking; bad man* and his brother, Floyd, .slipped through a police ambuscade blazing shotgun fire at an apartment house here last night and remained at [aree today. Hamilton, former lieutenant of the late Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, dead outlaw couple, nnc! fugitive from the Texas chair for slaying a prison AT THE CROSSROADS B;IMJYRQ,N TRICE, Chief of. Bureau, i'hq Associated JJnjss, , , Not much, is said for publication, but undei;-surface, explorations preparatory 'tp the 1936 presidential campaign ajready have 'reached a highly active stage. The lieutenants of President Roosevelt, whose r.enoinination is conceded, coujd/ give you, from their confidential.' files: a detailed, picture of what they' exppQt to' happen in every state duj-ing the pre~cohven- tion season ending in June of next year. On the republican side the data, is far less complete, and. anything but conclusive, In the main, it forecasts continuing confusions and controversy right' up. to, the. time when the national'convention njakes its decisions. One of the primp questions is how many otlier, parties will be in the field. The. answer is conceded generally to depend on. the, economic trends of the next few mpnths. Republican Problems. Even as things stand now, no. one seems ablp to figure out how a prolonged deadlock came be avoided when the, republicans com? together in their next national; convention. More dart horses than, figured in the 1920 republican, deadlock are edging into the. picture. A candidate of the' type. of Qgden Mills-' or David Reeii migh,fc bg able to. organize a fonnjdatye b'JjOC, pf delegates in the east." while someone of the type of Arthiu- Vanderburg was getting together a, mid,-western Woo, . and someone Uke 'William E. Borah was collecting the left-wingers. Beyond that, vyhaj,? , A comprohiise lU?e that of 1920, which pn?du,ced Warren G. Harding, already is talked ftbpufj by many republican weath'.er sharps. And, incidentally, prediction, of such a compromise is about the only prediction any experienced republican is willing to tie to. As to issues, as distinguished from candidates, the confusion is even worse. It seems almost assured that the republican platform, too, will have to be written—for once—by the convention itself. ROGERS (Continues irom cage l.) ,not seem logical— at least, not to the logical Broadway repprters. In the first place, Miss Rogers is a serious and' pretty young actress. Her father is scarcely serious and perhaps not pretty. The play, "On to Fortune," was written by Lawrence Langner and Arraina Marshall, it is only a fair play a»d a fairly amusing one. Heretofore, their stage works have been exceptionally hUMtous. "On ifccf fortune" is a satire, not ' , .only cw the Bankers' of thlat short electric . --~ guard, nway from the scene in stolen light service truck. Afoot his brother, wanted by fed- crnl authorities, raced down an nl- icy, slipped through n .dozen officers, and vanished. Both were believed' wounded. Offlcsrs believed it an impossibility for the pair to have escaped bullet wounds as two hundred shots were fired at the fleeing men. The pair drove up to the apart- msnt house, where officers earlier in the day had arrested Mrs. Mildred Hamilton, Floyd's wife, and another woman. Floyd alighted from the car and walked to a window. "Hello, hello," he said as he tapped the pane. Six city detectives inside commanded him to throw up his hands. He didn't hear them. They repeated their command and he backed away and reached for a pistol. The six officers opensd fire simultaneously with sawed-off shotguns and pistols. Bullets riddled the car in which Raymond sat but the youthful desperado tumbled from the machine and joined his brother In flight down an alley. Their escape was miraculous. City and federal officers were spattered, over the vicinity. Raymond rushed into the garage of the Dallas Gas company, jumped into n service truck and spsd away. Floyd, afoot was lost in the darkness. Officers Encircle City State highway patrolmen, federal officers, city detectives and sheriff's deputies encircled the city. Not a trace of the red truck was seen. Policeman J. F. Daniel was shot in the. hand by the single shot of gunfire from the fleeing brothers. Officers linked the pair with the $1,093 robbery of the First National bank nt Carthage, Texas, early yesterday, when license plates from a machine stolen at Carthage were found in the abandoned car. A receipt for a gas bill addressed to Floyd Hamilton and a letter from the Anderson county district .attoi- ney to a Dallas attorney discussing Floyd Hamilton's record were found in the apartment. Insurance papers bearing Floyd's name also were found. Mrs. Floyd Hamilton and the other woman arrested were trapped by police several hours before the shooting when they entered the front door. Officers said one of the women pulled a pistol but was quickly subdued. They were taken to jail and the officers remained at the apartment. Mrs. Hamilton was turned over to federal authorities. She is under indictment for harboring and concealing Barrow and the Parker woman. Raymond Hamilton made a daring escape from the state prison at Tjluntsville on July 22, 1934. With five other prisoners, 'they shot their way out with smuggled 'guns. He is the only one stUl at large. Three of the men were shot down from the prison walls, Joe Palmer was captured later in Kentucky and Itvin (Blackie) Thompson, was. slain by Amnrillo- officers. Linked With Robbery Hamilton had been sought thru- out the day as a possible participant in the Carthage robbery. Three roughly dressed men participated in the robbery. Two of them entered the bank, flashed automatic pistols, forced Cashier A. L. Ross to unlock the vault, collected all the available cash, and fled with their companion," waiting out- sjde in the machine. They abandoned the car 16 miles west of Carthage and changed to another' machine. The trip had been reported camped near Carthage for several days wi,th a wom.an. officers found in abandoned car here blankets, sheets, household utensils^ women's clothing, two. automatic shotguns, two rifles and several hundred rounds of ajumiunitipB, Early yestpjjday afternoon officers warned residents of the neighborhood to "stay inside" after nightfall for a shooting was expected. • Authorities received a tip- several days a.go. that the Hamiltons were _ using the apartment as a hide-out. = The. Pjace was put under surveil- EE lance and, when additional infer- ~ motion led officers to believe the Hamiltons had robbed the Carthage bank yesterday, a trap was set. Shot full of holes, the antiquated car in which the Hamiltons had been transporting their arsenal was abandoned in their headling flight. Although there were no bipod stains found on the car ( or where the Hamilfcons dashed awak officers said, they couldn't conceive of the fugitives, escaping being wounded in the face of the barrage of gunfire laid down by the officers.

Senate Passes Brazos Bill By 28 to 1 Ballot AUSTIN, Fcib. 5. (AP)—The senate, without debate, passed, 28 to 1, a bill by Senators Albert Stone of Brenham and W. R. Poage of Waco to establish a master Brazos river conservation and reclamation district, a public authority to develop the stream. Leaders of a congressional steer- Ing committee on the district's application for $50,000,000 to finance the hydro-electric, flood control and reclamation project said the state net was necessary. It would eliminate requirements for expenditure of funds to develop the stream for navigation, make rights of the district subject to prior water rights, and establish a 21 member board of directors with overlapping terms. Senator Weaver Moore oof Houston removed tiny possibility of interference with an application of the lower Colorado river authority for a PWA loan and grant of $4,500,000 to complete Buchanan dam, an unfinished Insull project. Moore said in view of a hpuse committee action killing a 'bill to prohibit payment of any fee or commission for procuring the loan or properties he would let a similar bill die in the senate. Administration sponsors delayed senate action on a bill proposed by Governor James V. Allred to establish a Texas planning board to coordinate state and federal recovery efforts and to formulate state plans for best utilii&tion of federal funds. SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 5 — An army major was fatally injured and two other officers slightly hurt in a night club fight that climaxed a gay party in celebration of their regiment's birthday here early today. Tlie dead man was Major Charles A. Ross, battalion commander of Jie 30th infantry, stationed In the Presidio. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Central Emergency Hospital after either falling or* being thrown down a long flight of steps at the entrance to the night club. Major William P. Lee, one of his companions, suffered a bruised left eye, and Lieut. Wlnfrsd Skelton a cut Up in the brief scuffle that preceded the tragedy. , Held in connection with: death of Major Ross are Clem Gaviotti, well known in San Francisco night life circles, and two of his aides, Joe Vanessi and Sam Erlich. The three were booked on manslaughter charges after two hours' questioning by ice. All denied being involved in the fight. Major Ross and five companions —Major Lee and C. M. Easley; captains Thomas N. Stark, and Earle M. Miner, and Lieut Skelton—arrived at thfe Club Cairo shortly after 1 a. m,, witnesses said, and a quarrel with fclub attendants began at the door. ' "I checked my hat and coat," paid Major Easley, "and on returning saw the other officers quarreling with Gavotti, Vanessi, and Erlich. I tried to-calm the club attendants and tcld them not to take the major seriously about anything as he was only kidding'. But they Insisted on throwing him out." A scuffle ensued. Major Easley said Major Ross was "manhandled to the head of the stairs and thrown down." The major told police that the club employes further manhandled Major Ross outside the building by kicking him. Major Ross was a native of Michigan and had been in the army since 1918. For several years he was a member of the central staff school at Washington, D. C. He leaves a widow and two daughters, one of whom is married and lives in Washington, D. C. Between 300 and 400 volcanic craters, believed to have been inactive for nearly half a century, have been explored south of Arizona's border in Mexico. Most Of Letters Are Sympathetic FLEMINGTON, N. J., Feb. 5. UP', Sixty two letters catne for Bruno Hftuptniann received today— an average rettirn from the postman who has brought him from 50 to 75 letters daily sihce he entered the Hunterdon county jail. C. Lloyd Fisher, one of Haupt- inann's attornes's, said the prisoner's mail includes notes from school girls, predictions from astrologers, conversion appeals from clergymen and laymen, autograph requests, notes of encouragement, and various odds and ends. One letter contained an invitation to a barn dance in Arkansas with the qualification— "when New Jersey learns you are not responsible for the kidnaping of the Lindbergh baby." "The strange thing about Hauptmann's mail is that very little of it is condemnatory in tone," Fisher, remarked. "Most of it is sympathetic, and some of it contains toasts to his success in the^ current trial." Stalcup Special Venire Exhausted LUBBOCK, Feb. 5. CAP)—Exhausting a special venire panel, selection of a jury to try Virgil Stalcup, West Texas badman, for the slaying of Sheriff W. B. Arthur, pf Dickens county, was delayed in 90th district court this afternoon until an additions,] venire of 30 men could be summoned. Court adjourned until 2 p. m while the bailiffs sctirried over the county summoning the additional veniremsn. Eight jurors had been selected when court recessed.

Coyner, g&nt negro ghoul, was closely guarded today in a j Jackson jail after being sentenced to die on the gallows March 5 for the Bim'dej- ot M/A Aurelius B. Turner. The grave, digging ne- gi-9 who confessed killing Mrs. Turner and her husband lust December and cutting pieces oof flesh from the woman's bodj", was convicted in a one-d&y trial here yeil/erday. He was tak,en to Jacfe- SQJII 'by 200 national, jjuwdsmen for safekeeping. > he said, "the potential power of this, the largest known gas field, is greater than the potential water power of the UWted States." Finch, in reply, told Jones that the bureau was "greatly interested" in the conservation and economic .development of the gas resources of the Panhandle and added that "under present conditions more than one billion cubic feet of this gas is being blown into the air each day and a plan for conservation and commercial use of the resources of this field is of great importance." Riehjierg suggested that when the program of work relief projects is organized, Jones' suggestions might well be considered by those placed in charge and also suggested that the matter be laid before the national resources board, which he said he thought would be "extremely interested." The problem of gas wastage attracted the attention of the Cole oil investigating subcommittee of the interstate and. foreign commerce committee of the house on a recent trip across the country and only three weeks ago Secretary Ickes at a press conference mado a vicious attack on the gas^ waste. A huge image of Buddha erected. at Nam, Japan, in the eighth century contained 1,154,097' pounds of blister copper, 20,385 pounds of wlijte metal believed to be silver, 4,886. pounds of mercury, and 996 pounds of green gold.
