The headquarters is located here. But this would be of small moment if there were not many men interested in Scouting throughout the Adobe Walls council. As the 25th birthday of Scouting arrives this week, the council as a whole views with pride and with deep appreciation the work of its Scouts and their leaders. . For, as February 8 comes around this year, we are otice again reminded that the Boy Scouts are having a birthday, this time an officially important one, the twenty-fifth, which will usher in its Silver Anniversary year, celebrating a quarter century of Scouting, during which 6,530,330 boys and men have in all branches followed its happy, healthy, outdoor program and committed themselves to the great Oath and Law, which has been described as the finest code for conduct that has been proclaimed since the Sermon on the Mount. Congratulations to every Boy Scout of America! Congratulations to America that it has Boy Scouts! Scouting was devised as a game and is played in that spirit, but underneath the game, permeating every aspect of it, are the intangible permanent values of character, of loyalty and good faith and courage and service in forgetfulness of self, in remembrance of the needs of others. Take one Scout Law alone and see what it nieans to American life as a whole, where it is multiplied more than a thousand fold, as it annually is. "A Scout is clean, —He keeps clean in body and thought, stands for clean speech, clean sport, clean habits and travels with a clean crowd." If this is part of a game, it is a game every American parent will covet for his son. We listen to the Scout Oath, to which every Scout and Scouter throughout the country will re-subscribe on Friday evening, February 8. THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON.—An epidemic of New Deal resignations, threatened or already submitted, has stirred up the latest backstage hubbub here. All the king's horses and all the king's men have been used to keep the National Labor Relations Board from walking out in protest against its own futility and White Souse "interference." The common background is the dispute between the automobile industry and organized labor, which dates back to the birth of NRA and Section 7-a, NIRA's collective bargaining clause. Here is the inside history: The powerful automobile and steel men consistently have refused to have any truck with the A. F. of L. They have threatened to abandon their NRA code unless the administration continues to grant them large concessions in their i-elations with labor. The NLRB decided privately last fall that enforcement of Section 7-a was non-existent in the automobile and steel fields, despite the theoretical functioning- of •'Dr. Leo Wolman's automobile board, specially appointed 'by Roosevelt in the auto strike settlement last spring and the steel board. Unanimously, NLRB, under Chairman Francis Biddle, decided to step into the automo'bile field and order its own elections to determine whether auto workers wanted ;a labor union or company union to represent them in .collective bargaining. It was ready to act last December. Auto union leaders were ready to repudiate the Wol- taan board and have no more to do with it. Such repudiation was a preliminary requisite to the NLRB intervention. But President Bill Green of the A. F. of L. delayed that action during a series of futile negotiations with Secretary Perkins and others. Meanwhile, Wolman, who had said in April that his board had no power to call elections, suddenly announced elections. A. F. of L. leaders, caught off base, repudiated them and told union men not to vote. The result,, according to impai"tial insiders here, was .the recent huge majorities of "no affiliation" ballots, as workers feared to identify themselves as union men by refusal to vote. Meanwhile NLRB carefully set a precedent for intervention in automobiles and steel by taking jurisdiction .in the Jennings case, over protest of newspaper publishers who insisted the Newspaper Industrial Board had the only jurisdiction. ^ Every insider knew NLRB was really gunning for the 'automobile magnates and seeking to assert itself as a "supreme court"' on 7-a. Roosevelt, fully aware of that, publicly told the board 'to lay off all cases from industries for which special la: bor boards had been created 1 , as in automobiles and steel. But only after Donald Richberg had vainly sought to get •NLRB voluntarily to make a similar declaration of its ;6wn. For weeks the board had sought an interview with -Roosevelt. The president's letter promptly inspired the r two resignations, never announced, and prospect of a third. Assurances then began to pour into the NLRB from the White House, Miss Perkins, Richberg, and even administration leaders in Congress that board members should stay to help Congress formulate strong labor dis- 'putes legislation. The irony of the success of these assurances lies in the fact that Roosevelt doesn't want any new labor disputes legislation and probably will act to prevent it. ... Styles in the auto industry change each year, but when it comes to the automobile code, the industry prefers to stick to the 1934 model. Twenty million on relief leaves only one hundred ^trillion wondering where the next day's food expenses \vill come from. • The New Jersey judge who beat up a man for beat- Jng his wife and children probably didn't act legally, but lie acted effectively.

TEXAS HISTORY Brushing Up on Pacts You Ought to Recall Governor Henry Smith, lieutenant governor James W. Robinson, and the council, composed of one representative from each municipality in Texas, and hundreds of loyal Texans were in Brazorkc to give their United States commissioners a hearty send-off in December, 1835. Three of their finest men were to be their representatives, going to' ask for the cooperation of relatives and friends in whatever Texas decided to do in the forthcoming inevitable clash with Mexico. William H. Wharton, militant patriot who advocated immediate declaration of independence, Branch T. Archer, who had been president of the consultation held November 3, and Stephen F. Austin, whom some would have hnd as governor, were the commis- sioners. Austin had been nominated for tl>e governorship, but it was decided that ho could do more good for all if he were to go to the United States. Although war had not been declared, preparations'^ were made for proper defense. A group of 150 armed men, to be called "rangers" were to guard the frontier, and Sam Houston was appointed commander- in-chief of the army. The consultation at Washington on the Brazos had lasted for eleven days. While the delegates were th|ere, they agreed that no further land titles should be issued, and that the Cherokee and other friendly Indians should have their titles secured. March 1, 1836, was set as the next date for a' consultation. By that time it would be possible to tell which course to take in regard to Mexico, and the people would know definitely how they stood on the question of war. The noble attempt at self-government did not fare well. Governor Smith and his counsel disagreed en nearly every issue, and for a month organization of the army, as well as other matters, was practically paralyzed. 8am Houston could do nothing, for he and his men were subject to the will of "the governor and council. 1 ' Although the council finally took action to depose Smith as governor, he continued to net in that capacity. The commissioners in. the United States heard with dismay of the actions of the poltical set-up in Texas. The people they Tiffd come to ask for aid and to whom they were to present their cause were disguised with the turn of events. It would be difficult for the representatives to speak highly of their government with such obstacles. Colonists were also discouraged over the quarrels and the unsettled conditions. Two fshort months were to pass rapidly, then Texas was to strike for independence. This independence they were to achieve at Son Jacinto and it is the Centennial of this event, whiclij Texas is preparing to commemorate in 1936. Court Dissolves Restraining Order AUSTIN, Feb. 7. (/P)—The third court of civil appeals dissolved a temporary restraining order prohibiting the Texas railroad commission from Interfering with the movement of approximately 100,000 barrels of fuel oil belonging to George Real of Arp. The court held that the restraining order, granted by District Judge C. A. Wheeler, had the effect of an injunction and should not -have been issued without hearing. The commission • had asked that In event the court held a restraining order was- not subject to appeal, it issued a writ to prohibit Judge Wheeler from entering any more such orders, the writ of prohibition. The court denied the motion for its original status except that Heal The decision returned the case to can get no injunctive relief without a hearing. ^ Contrary to the liberating nature of bears, a big bruin known as "Honest John, the Killer" frequently is sec abroad in the mountains cf Jackson county, North Carolina, during the worst blizzards of the winter.
