But the time is here to use every re- iree; With hundreds of thousands of projects going Washington, a big per cent cannot be cleared soon, r ~J£ come, first served is still a customary procedure. It has been and is daily being proved that use of influence speeds projects. Hundreds of delegations are on their way to Washington. Hundreds of others have already 'been—months ago on PWA applications. Pampa is beginning to contact Washington, and must line up an equally vital contact at San Antonio, on WPA applica- .tidtts. These are good steps but they must be energeti- .Cally followed. Complications will likely arise. Quick action Will remove most of these obstacles. '•'_ The City has perfected applications to the satisfaction of the Amarillo office. It now awaits action of the Mate office at San Antonio. Washington is next. Approval of the application however, is merely a preliminary step. Specific and detailed plans and drawings must be |,ufnished. Unless these are ready by the time approval as given, or soon thereafter, more weeks df delay may re- Bult. ' "With millions being showered upon the states, Pam. pa and Gray county can get their share if those in au- .thority are as resourceful and as well informed as officials of competing cites, counties, and schools. \ i>J Jf Jt takes politics to move dollars in Washington, we .must use politics.

C fl PIT 0 L JIGSAW By HOWARD C. MARSHALL AUSTIN, Sept. 14 yrV-The governor, the secretary of state, and the attorney general compose the can vassing board which theoretically tabulates and certifies results of Important elections. Actually the work was done by two clerks in the secretary of state's office and three newspaper correspondents in the c&se of the recent election in which five constitUMona amendments Were adopted. The correspondents pitched in when it ttbpeared that unless extra- help was provided they might have been'all night awaiting the final result. English Statesman HE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON .BY RODNEY DUTOHBI NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—Further notes on lobbying: The "power trust" lobby, which for years has spent more money and hired more lobbyists than any other, .'probably will join the prohibition lobby as a has-been. Its 'devious, secretive methods are blocked by a provision ,ln the utility holding company act forbidding anyone paid by a holding company or subsidiary from lobbying with- 'outjpublicly registering with the SEC. , y°'u can get a rough idea how many resident lobbyists there are here by counting some 2500 lawyers and law firms in the city telephone directory. Several hundred other lobbyists don't profess to be lawyers. Nobody knows how many, among those who do, ever passed bar exams. Sometimes lobbyists start with an ace in the hole. A congressman who voted against the "death sentence" tells me he made a survey among colleagues who did likewise and found about 85 per cent of them either owned holding company securities or had members of .their immediate families who ownedi some. . * * # # One of the most recent officials to resign and join the brotherhood is former Assistant Attorney General William Stanley, who has been representing certain financing companies -which want more out of the Federal .Housing Administration set-up than they've been getting. Some congressmen insist on putting themselves under obligation to lobbyists. Millard of New York, who re. cently was yelling so loudly about the Jim Farley Stamp scandal, requested the United Drydocks Co. to give some of its sheet metal work to a New York man. A company official sent an inter-office memorandum suggesting compliance with the request, "as, of course, a member of the House naval affairs committee may be very useful in future dealings with the navy." About 20,000 lawyers and agents (most of them not Washihgtonians) are licensed to practice before the Treasury. More, than 200 have been disbarred, suspend- pd or reprimanded in the past few years by a Treasury committee appointed to enforce ethical standards. The cream of this business is in tax refunds for corporations and rebates for huge estates. A few newspapermen have deserted their trade to take up lobbying. Jim West, who left his job covering Hoover for a press association to become press agent for jthe Republican National Committee for a while, .received '$,§4,00 from shipbuilding companies during the Senate Munitions hearings and $7500 from duPont, Remington, and Curtiss-Wright. Very rarely a correspondent is discovered to be on the secret payroll of an organization engaged' in .lobbying •or propaganda, whereupon he is fired from the Senate p_res's gallery if ho hasn't formally disclosed the connec- Jion. ' 'A political writer representing a Boston newspaper use dto brand such progressives as Norris and Wheeler regula'rly as "bolsheviks" until it was discovered he was ,working on the side for the New England Power Assoc- which then hire,d him as one of its officials. I The assassination of Huey Long was the biggest news event in capital interest since the death of Will Rogel's. As probably wns true everywhere, the fiery Louisiana senator'o policies had strong partisans and bitter critics in Austin but nil joined in debouncing the manner of his death. There was an almost insatiable demand for extra: editions of newspapers, the press rooms were besieged for information on Long's condition as he lay dying and for hours the shooting was the chief topic of conversation in corridors and offices. It was recalled that Long once sharply criticized the Texas legislature for failure to follow his cotton-control program. That was during the administration of Gov. R. S. Sterling. By resolution, the legislature replied in kind, using'some of the language Long excelled at. Hdw many persons are there In Texas today? State Auditor Orville S. Carpenter, using U. S. census methods, says 6,650.476. He estimates there are 112,255 between the ages of 05 and 69, 83,708 between 70 and 75, and 87,236 over 75, or a total of 283,119 65 years and older. The population in 1930 was 5,824,715, of whom 232,459 were 65 or older. Governmental reports show the number of nged People is increasing rapidly due to a decrease in the birth rate and an increase in human longevity.
