WEDNESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 6, 1935. TUB PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, TexSa PAGE BTVfi FLOYD \!S TAKEN INTO CUr^DY ON BUS; RAY WOUNDED DALLAS, Feb. 6. f/P)— Raymond Hamilton, the southwcst's most- wanted hoodlum, was sought with renewed energy today by officers wlio drew encouragmcnt from the capfure of his brother and alleged partner, and from indications that Raymond was seriously wounded In his escape from a trap here. Floyd Hamilton, elder brother of the bank robbery specialist, was en route here from Shcrveport, Ln., where he was captured yesterday by officers who recognized him as they made a routine inspection of the passengers aboard a bus. He was wounded in the arm, but denied the wound was caused by a bullet and said he was not the man with Raymond when the latter broke out of a police trap in a hail of bullets Monday night. He also denied he participated with his brother in a bank robbery at Carthage, Tc:;as, a few hours before the encounter here. He put up no fight and was not armed, but officers reported they found more than $400 on him. Floyd Hamilton admitted he had been in touch with Raymond recently and said his brother gave him the money. Hopes for the early capture of Raymond Hamilton were raised by the discovery of blood stains, in the gas service truck which he stole for his getaway from the officers' ambush. Blood on Cat- Blood traces at snoukler height in the driver's seat led Police Captain ,J. W. Fritz to express opinion he . had been hard hit. Other stains, on the cushion and floor boards were interpreted as meaning he had been struck a second time in the region of tha knee. The truck, as part -of its regular equipment, carried soap, brushes, and water. Officers who inspected f the machine when it was found hid* den in a clump of trees ten miles from here last night said it was obvious the fleeing gangster had attempted to wash off the blood to prevent them from tearing he had been hit. A report that Raymond had been seen in downtown Dallas shortly before 2 a. m. sent police scurrying over the city in a renewed hunt. The report was based on a meeting between two automobiles, with witnesses saying a woman got out of one car, handed a rifle to a young man 'and said, "now for God's sake be careful, Ray." The man entered the other car and drove away. Police said they were told a second man stood wait ing on the corner until the woman drove up. Then he was reported to have darted into an adjoining lot from which the man suspected of being Hamilton came a, moment later to take the gun and speed away. 'Don't Shoot' ' Floyd Hamilton had a ticket to Vivian La., where his father is employed in an oil refinery, when he was taken into custody. "Don't shoot," he cried as the deputies recognized him and prodded him with pistols. "I haven't got a gun." , . The specific charge on which Sheriff R. A. Schmirt brought him back to Dallas was aiding the late Clyde Banow in freeing Raymond and four others from the Texas prison farm last year by hiding pistols for use when Barrow and his gang raided the farm. Schmid said he was the 18th person taken into custody on charges of aiding Barrow, who was slain with his gunwoman consort, Bonnie Parker, in Louisiana. The officer said he probably would be the first one tried on the federal charge. Raymond Hamilton wus a lieutenant of the killer, Barrow, and succeeded him as the southwest's No. I public enemy. He is under death sentence- for the slaying of a guard in one of his prison breaks. Floyd Hamilton's wife was arrested with another woman at the scene of the ambush here. The second woman, a striking brunette, was held without formal charge. She was believed to have succeeded Mary O'Dare as Raymond's light o' love. The officers after taking them into custody wailed at the apartment until Raymond and the second man drove up, then opened fire on them with pistols, shotguns, and rifles. _ - .*»- Texas Internal Revenue Taxes Show Increase WASHINGTON, Feb. 6. (/P)— The treasury department announced today that Texans had paid about $18,000.000 more in internal revenue taxes in 1934 than in 1033. Most of the gain was in corporation income taxes and agricultural adjustment administration taxes. Here are the comparative figures lor the two years: Corporation: 1933, $5,616,086.27; 1934, $10278,618.20. Individual: 1933, $7,318,631.69; 1934, $9.617,082.42. Miscellaneous internal revenue : 1933, $31,190,565.41; 1934, $33,832,370.10. Agricultural adjustment taxes: !933,$4,399,5}4.58; 1934, $12,599,455.74. Total (all sources): 1933,$48,524,797.95; 1934, $44,327,556.46. Texas ranked fifteenth in total income taxes paid. New York topped the list With $580,032,128.56 -and 4rl«ons . brought up the rear with -' Flays Huey At din moment Jjtic.y Long- was speeding; from New Orleans to Baton Rouire to smash at his foes, Rep. J. Y. Sanders, above, one of the Louisiana 'Old Guard' and foe of -the King-fish, was making a flaming speech in the House in Washington, charging; that democracy in his state hiiil liecn replaced by "Asiatic despotism." Tim Louisiana capital is Sanders' home. Brings Dispute In Washington WASHINGTON, Feb. G. (/P)—Two Mavericks of trip capital arc equally proud of their names, but take conflicting views on its common usage. Rep. Maury Maverick of Texas, sets forth in his biography in the congressional directory: "Grandson of Samuel A. Maverick (vide 'Maverick' in any dictionary), Texas patriot, signer of the Texas declaration of independence, 1836." What one dictionary said was: 'Maverick—an unbranded animal, esp. a yearling; named from Samuel Maverick, a' Texas cattle raiser who refrained from branding his stock." And another dictionary added that the reason he didn't brand was because he ranched on an island. But Mrs. Lola Maverick Lloyd, a capital cousin of the Texas representative, thinks tb,at Grandfather Maverick earned a better memorial than that word in the dictionary. "I get just real cross with my cousin for calling attention to it," she said. "Samuel Maverick was too fine a man to be remembered by unbranded cattle." 8,156,962 CATTLE BOUGHT BY GOVERNMENT AT $13.50 EACH WASHINGTON, Feb. 6. CAP) — The federal government today closed its books on emergency purchases of cattle in drought areas with 8,156,962 animals bought for a total of $108,335,332 or an average price of $18.50 per head. This "culling" of cattle herds, AAA officials said, has put tha industry in one of the most favorable positions of its history, with most of the poorer animals removed and surplus of a year ago brought down to an approximately normal level of 57,000,000 head. However, they added, the beef cattleman is still a long way from becoming prosperous, despite the record top pri e of $13.65 per hundredweight quoted last week at Chicago. This was the peak price for- smooth, long-fed cittle, very few of which are available for present marketing, according to H. J. Gramiich, special adviser to Administrator Chester C. Davis. The cattle remaining on farms, officials raid, are generally of a b'Khcr quality than cvsr before and fanners who were not forced to cut into foundation herds will be in position to profit later from lite''or prices as feed again becomes available in larger quantities. I''r.vcver, Gramiich pointed out, many of thn cattle left arc thin and will require heavy feeding for several months before they are ready for market at profitable prices. He and Col. Phillip G. Murphy, chief cf the commodities purchase rcctlon of tho AAA, <;aid cattlemen will have to recsive higher prices for some time in order to recoup losses of the past few years. Government purchases of drought-stricken cattle and emergency marketings brought the farm inventory down from the 67,000,000 level of Jan. 1, 1934, to approximately 57,000,000 on Jan. 1, 1935, or fibout the same point as in 1900, 1!U2. and 1928, the low years of the normal production cycle. Th>; 8.15G.P62 head bought formed about *y per cent of the total in- ventnry on the 755,158 farms from which pui chases were made, most of \vhirh lie In the states west of the Mississippi river. Cf the total purchases 1,424,879 animals were condemned as unfit for hur>if,\i food and destroyed- on the farms. The remainder were turns'! ever to the federal .relief adninistratmn for proressing Into foo-J for families on relief rolls. Intensity of the drought in the most severely affected states was indicated in the percentage of total farm inventories sold. In North Dakota, and Montana 51 per cent of all cattle were bought, in South Dakota, 45 per cent, and. in Okla| homa 41 per cent. ! Texas sold the largest total 1,026,398; North Dakota disposed of 977.120, and South Dakota 912,846. A bright spot in the future of the cattle industry was Indicated today when some AAA officials declared that new surveys had showed an improvement in the feed situation. Many fanners who had excess feed which they were holding for higher prices are growing panicky, jt was said, and offering supplies in considerably larger quantities than they had indicated as possessing. A summary of the purchases, by states, includes: States— Selling No. Farms Arkansas 33,868 Kansas 46,873 Louisiana 14,364 Missouri 92,880 New Mexico 17,749 Oklahoma 38,273 Texas 163,772 Total Purchased Reported H2,2<)4 521,056 46,852 513,019 545,630 493,750 • 1,926,398 Pet.

C. (/Pl-'A bill to appropriate $8,500 for an investigation into the scholastic census to determine if any names were improperly or fraudulently entered was offered in the house today.

Thn house ordered the report of a special committee that investigated coastal fishing' waters printed as a supplement to-the journal. ?A REFINERIES CLOSED KILGORE, Feb. 6. (/I 1 )—Twenty- four East Texas refineries wero operating today, according to railroad commission agents. Fifty were closed down. Weekly reports on refinery runs to stills of East Texas refineries have boen resumed by the commission. Such reports were discontinued about three months ago due to a limited field force. President Miguel Lope?, of San Juan, Batabgas, Philippine Islands, palherecl a squad of police during the height of the October typhoon and went about the city rendering aid. "A pardon for General Robert E. Lee" was the title of an interesting resolution unanimously adopted by the 35th annual encampment, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, at Louisville, Ky. The resolution, in the form of ,a bill, will be submitted for action to the national congress this session, according to Commander H. W. Waddell of Pampa Post No. 1657 V. P. W. AUhougn »:?owing the close of , the Civil war in 1805, the United j States congress granted full and complete amnesty and pardon to many of the participants in the cause of the south, General Robert 3. Lee, of Virginia, was not included. Specific conditions under which •eneral Lee would be restored his rights of citizenship and full liberty, were set aside by the congress, and ;hcugh these conditions were fulfilled, and General Lee, prior to his death in 1870, petitioned congress to grant him a restoration of full citizenship rights, congress failed to make favorable recognition of the petition and General Lee, at the lime of his death, was a paroled prisoner of war. He is still so listed I upon the records of the government. In view of the fact that the passage of the years has dimmed trn political differences of 18G1. and that the life and character of General: Lee have identified him as one of the greatest figures in American history, the Veterans of Foreign Wars proposes to have removed from his name and memory any technical stigma. The resolution adopted by the Louisville encampment provides that the organization "do petition tly congress of the United States to make such restoration as may be possible and that the records of the United Stules be cleared of the notation which classifies General Lee as a paroled prisoner of war."

CONSERVATIVES GAIN CONTROL OF FARM ADMINISTRATION WASHINGTON, Feb. 6. tff>)— A conflict between 'Tight" and "left" Camps of the AAA resulted today in the virtual ousting of Jerome Frank known as an "original 'brain trustcr," and four other officials. The shakeup was described as a victory for the more conservative school represented by farm administrator Chester Davis. An official said that Frank, former Chicago attorney and friend of Prof. Felix Frankfurter of Harvard, was expected to resign today as counsel to the agriculture adjustment administration. Besides Frank, the men leaving their posts include three lawyers under him, Lee Pressman, Francis Shea and Victor Rolnem, and Gardner Jackson of consumers counsel. The men who were informed that resignations were in order said the action taken by Secretary Wallace at the instance of Davis was a complete surprise. Word of the requested resignations came after an official announcement which told simply of a reorganization. Prank and the others were not mentioned. The announcement said the legal division of AAA would be consoldiated with the office of the department solicitor, Seth Thomas. One contention of the school of which Frank is a representative has been that some of the government programs for controlling crops and regulating marketing have favored large land owners and handlers of farm products. The viewpoint in the Davis camp has been that many of the critics have no practical knowledge of /arming and that they have hampered the-drive toward prosperity. Until 1868, married women In North Carolina did not have tho legal right to exercise control over property they owned, that prerogative being vested In husbands.
