Included In a number of orders-was a refusal to review convictions of Manny Strewl and six other men now serving long prison terms in connection with the 1937 kidnaping of John J O'Connell, Jr., of Albany, N. Y. The Justices said tho application for review "was not made within the time provided by law."

The tribunal adjourned for two weeks after hearing attorneys for Joseph G. Strecker of Hot Springs, Ark., argue that membership in the communist party of the United States was not adequate grounds for deportation of an alien. Solicitor General Robert H. Jackson contended Friday for tho government that an alien who Joined tho communist party should be deported because he bound himself to a program called for forcible overthrow of the government.

EFFORT HAVE WHOLE LEGISLATURE HEAR ARGUMENTS FUTILE LOCAL OPTION ON BETTING FAILS SECURE NECESSARY AMOUNT OF VOTES AUSTIN, Feb. 13.—W>—A move to,have the whole house of representatives attend a hearing on a bill to legalize betting on horse races by local option failed In that body today. A vote of 73 to 67 fell short of the required two-thirds majority '.o order the procedure suggested ay Rep. Bryan Bradbury of Abilene, author of the measure which ibollshed parlmutuel wagering In Texas two years ago. Bradbury asked the house to hear the local option horse race betting bill tomorrow night "In order to save time." The bill Is slated for a hearing by the state affairs committee at that time. "This bill is going to be a stumbling block to other matters such as old age pensions and taxation," Bradbury contended. "If the entire, house could hear It at once and act on It Instead of permitting it to be heard by a committee and then take action In the house, It would save a lot of time and argument. "Let's get It out of the way Instead of making it a trading block between the houses." Rep. Ross Hardln of Prairie Hill isked Bradbury to substitute a house hearing on pension bills, asserting "I don't know of anybody 3ut_you who Is stumbling over that "I'll go with you on pensions If you help me get this gambling bill disposed of," Bradbury retorted. O'DANIEL (Continued From Page One) O'Danlel applied thhe labels preposterous" and "untrue" to statements the transactions levy Is a pyramided levy tax, a .sales tax, an Impost on poor people exclusively or will keep Industries out of Texas. He said he would wait a little while about sawing off the limb supporting enemies of his plan in order to see "how many more hirelings of the special Interests want to identify themselves by getting out on the same limb with the rest of the bunch." Legislators were puzzled by the following paragraph of the speech: "They (enemies of O'Daniel's program) have made some charges about the transactions tax and in so doing have placed themselves In the position of admitting one of the most severe indictments against the commercial Interests of this state that could be Imagined—an indictment that the producers and consumers should resent and demand Immediate change In our whole commercial structure." O'Danlel said he would explain It "at the proper time." COMMISSIONERS (Continued From Page One) der certain conditions and financial assistance from the commissioners' court. County Judge Paul H. Miller will write officials to find out the requirements for state and federal trappers' aer 1 vices. It was stated that several counties in this section had enlisted the services of the government trappers. County Farm Superintendent. County Judge Miller was authorized to enter contract with L. A. Gideon as superintendent of the county farm for the-ensuing year after his bond In the sum of $2,000 had been approved. The salary is $65 per month. The renewal of a lease contract with R. B. George Machinery company for certain road equipment used in Precinct 4 was authorled. Bids from a number of machinery concerns for road maintainers were opened and tabulated Commissioner c. M. Fltzgarald 'of Precinct 2 purchased an Allls-Chal- mers maintainer from the Benson- Shaw Company, Dallas, for $1,401. Other bidders included Highway Machinery Company, Dallas; R. B. George Machinery Company, Dallas, and J. D. Adams Company, Dallas. Mrs. Brown of Waco appeared before the court with referenc* to-furnishing another road on her property in the Powell community. She offered the use of a levee as a road to relieve a section now used that was reported to be too low for road purposes. The construction of a bridge will be necessary on the new site. Commissioner Fitzgerald will handle the matter. PENSIONS (Continued From Page Ona) Ing so detailed, officials said today, the Inquiry may last another month. , Proponents \of both the Townsend and the general welfare pension bills claim enough strength In the committee to force their measures to the house floor when testimony finally Is completed. The administration, on the other hand, is advocating Instead extension of .the social security program. Supporters of that system are being heard along with the pension advocates by the ways and means committee. The pension hearings represent a climax to four years of tumult over the principal of regular government payments to the aged. Differences in the proposed systems, however, are placing congressmen who favor old age pensions In principle under a strong crossfire. When, the Townsend movement first started early in 1935, it was based on the principle that every person over 60 should be given a monthly pension of $200. This was modified later with $200 flx- de as a maximum. The bill provides for a two per cent transactions tax. These collections, amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars a month, would be distributed among all eligible persons over 60. To become eligible s> man or woman over 60 would have to agree to spend each pension payment within 30 days after receiving It, Dr. Francis E. Townsend, originator of the plan, asserts the resultant overturn of currency would lead the nation into a period of unprecedented prosperity. The general welfare act differs from the Townsend plan largely In that it substitutes a gross Income tax for the transactions tax. It provides for a maximum monthly pension of $60 and a minimum of $30 depending on each bene- flclarp's Income from other sources. Like the Townsendltes, friends of the general welfare plan argue that congressional approval of their proposal would "spur economic prosperity and stabilize It." MASONIC FRATERNITY IN NAVARRO COUNT!
