n^. Constitution Is Bitterly Argued \ On Anniversary WASHINGTON, sept, n w)—^, this constitution day, forums in several parts of the nation resounded ift'ltli speeches forming a prelude, JJBfhapS, to the 1936 election argu- fnent. Former President Herbert Hoover, urging retention of the freedom represented In the bill of rights, denied that sacrifice of personal liberty can bring economic security. Chairman Henry P. Fletcher of the republican national committee hit the "philosophy of the new deal" as "utterly foreign" to the constitution. Secretary Roper, a Roosevelt administration leader, prenared to go on the rat'lo tonight with an address entitled "Forward With the Constitution." The occasion was the 184th anniversary of the signing mid submission to the states of the federal charter drafted in the constitutional convention at Philadelphia In 1787. Whereas Mr. Hoover, in his art- dress at the San Diego, Calif., exposition did not mention the new deal, Chairman Fletcher declared Its "apostles" are ready to "deprive our people of rights and our states of sovereignty" guaranteed in the constitution. qnePEOPLCS COLUMN To the Editor: Though the recent election resulted in the repeal of the state liquor laws, prohibitionists have much to encourage them. The victory to the antls is not nearly so encouraging to them as their victory two years ago. Then their majority was 112,730, the recent election gava them only 46,649 majority. Pros made a gain of 66,081 with nearly 65 psr cent of the qualified voters remaining at home. The wet majority was given mostly by three cities. One hundred and forty-seven counties voted dry, with only cne hundred and one voting wet. That result can, and must be changed.

Strcup returned Sunday from Oklahoma City after spending 10 days with Mr. Stroup, a patient in St. Anthony's hospital there. Mr. Stroup underwent a serious operation last Wednesday. His condition is considered favorable at present. of us crashing or doing something to Koenecke. "I watched mv chance, grabbed the fire extinguisher and walloped him over the head." Wheels Broken. Mulqueeney brought his ship down In a forced landing. The wheels of the plane were broken. When police arrived they found Koenecke "dead, the pilot's assistant, Irwin Davis of Detroit covered with blood and the pilot scarcely scratched. The airman told Constable Wethered that Koenecke, sent home from St. Louis by the Dor'gers yesterday to rnaks way for fresh talent, appeared under great stress when they started their flight from Detroit to Buffalo, N. Y. Constable Wethered said Mulqueeney told him Koenecke had been drinking, but was quiet for the first ten minutes after the takeoff, sitting at the front of the plane with the pilot. For no evident reason, Mulqueeney said, the baseball player then began to nur'gs him with his shoulder. "I told him to cut It out, that I had no time to play," the pilot said. "But when he kept up the horseplay I told him to get into the back seat with Davis." Koenecke began to poke htm In the shoulder again, Mulqueeney said, and Davis, sitting near the outfielder, attempted to quiet him, only to precipitate a struggle. The ball player and the pilot's assistant, locked In a bitter grip pfter Koenecke bit Davis in the shoulder, went to their knees on the floor of the plane. The ship rocked dangerously, and the pilot said he lost all sense of direction as the fight raged for 10 or 15 minutes. Striving to keep the ship on an even keel,.the pilot was unable to go Immediately to his helper's aid. Seizing his opportunity finally, Constable Weathered said Mulqueeney told him, the pilot battered down Koenecke. "With the passenger quiet. I took a look around, saw the open field with possibilities of fair landing and came down," the pilot said. The plane was a Stinson-Detroiter bearing the code letters NC422-6. On its side were emblazoned the words "Jacksonville, Fla." It was not determined immediately whether the plane strayed from its course in the darkness as it flew along the northern side of Lake Ontario. Col. Douglas Joy, inspector of civil aviation for the federal government, examined the plane. In addition to the damaged wheels, the tip of one blade of the propeller was bent and the end of the wings buckled. Residents of the Now Toronto district said they heard the plane circling about for a quarter hour or more before It landed. Koenecke, who set a new major league fielding record last year with an average of .994, being credited with but two errors in 123 games, left St. Louis where the Dodgers were playing at 2:45 p. m., GST yesterday for Newark. Two Brooklyn pitchers, Les Munns and Bobby Barr, also left with him for Newark, but at the Detroit city airport, Koenecke chartered the second plane to fly to Buffalo. John Gorman, secretary with the Brooklyn club, said Koenecke ap- parently was not depressed'wfieh life left tb.3 team. "He was sent home because had too man? players," the secretary said. "The club was rather -top-heavy, and Manager Stenge' wanted to try out some of the new material." His first season with the Dodgers —1934—was the high spot of his baseball career. He set his major league fielding record while batting .330. This, season, however, he hit another slump and proved of little use to the Dodgers. The Dodgers' secretary said Koenecke had a wife who lived in Indianapolis. Koenecke, born January IB, 1905, at Adams, Wis., began his organized baseball career with Springfield, 111., ;in 1927 and finished that season with Moline, where he batted .343. He went to Indianapolis in 1928 and batted .397. In quick succession, he played with Qulncy In the Three-Eye league In 1929, and with Springfield, Quincy and Indianapolis teams In 1930. With Indianapolis in 1931 he batted .354 and was considered one of the most promising of the 1932 crop of rookies. John McGraw cf the New York Giants was so impressed by his performance in the minors that the Giants bought him in 1931 from Indianapolis for the equivalent of $76,000 In players.

"But for others, let them realize that sanctions mean running the risk of remaking the map of Europe." ^_ HOOVER (Continued Trdm page 1) support and a better ball club next year. Jewell Tate, base umpire of the tournament, thanked the teams for their conduct and sportsmanship. The club gave A. J. Johnson, tournament manager, a rising vote of thanks for his untiring work In conducting the tournament. In response, the tournament manager declared that the success of the event was due to the cooperation business men of Pampa and sur- of the members and the fans and rounding territory. He spoke feelingly on the cooperation given him by managers and players of all the clubs. The checks were presented by President H. L. Polley. Jim Collins was In charge of the program. Other visitors today included Ralph Irwin, who invited the Jaycees to join the Phillips GO club in a dinner meeting in the basement of the Methodist church on next Tuesday night, the invitation being accepted with the noon meeting being called off; A. B. Johnson and J. M. Dodson. ITALY (Continued From Page 1) Interpret those provisions. They are as clear as the ten commandments." Men throughout the world, he declared, are in despair, "surrendering their freedom for false promises of economic security." He branded as false the idea that sacrifice of personal freedom can add to the economic efficiency, gain economic security, "find a single job" or "give a single assurance in old age." The truth of this, he said, has been tested by practical experience "under the American system." Asserting tttat "always groups of audacious men In government or out will consolidate privilege against their fellows," Mr. Hoover termed the "bill of rights" portion of the constitution "the invisible sentinels which guard the door of every home from Invasion of coercion, • of Intimidation and fear. Herein is the expression of the spirit of men who would be forever free." A shaft aimed at the growing centralization of governmental powers was contained in a declaration that "liberty is safe only by a division of powers and upon local self government." After declaring "liberty comes alone and lives alone where the hard-won rights of men are held inalienable, he asserted: "The nation seeks for solution of many difficulties. These solutions can come alone through the constructive forces which arise from the spirit of free men and women. "The purification of liberty from abuses, the restoration of confidence in the rights of men, from which came the release of the dynamic forces of initiative and enterprise, are alone in the methods through which these solutions can be found and the purpose of American life assured."
