The one-sided verdict last night was not unexpected. Opponents of i the proposal had admitted they Awould be licked in committee. The "(house refused them permission, However, to transfer it either to the agriculture group or a committee or the whole house. „ Proponents, jubilant over the ISanargin, voiced the opinion there 'was a good chance of legislative passage. Opponents claimed on the other hand that they mustered as many votes in committee as they had expected and that the house would kill the bill. The lower cham- fcer may note vote on it for several weeks. Committee action came shortly after conclusion of a lively hearing. Advocates of the bill vigorously argued It would do no harm because gambling can't be prevented arid that it would be of great benefit to the undeveloped horse-breed.. ing industry. ^ Opponents, Including ministers 'and business men, charged horse race betting was .morally wrong and economically unsound. Committeemen voting for the fav- orablo report were Leyendecker of Laredo, Bell of Cuero, Bradford •»« Fort Worth, Dwyer of San Antonio, Fuchs of Brenham, Gllmer of Rocksprings, McAllster of Fort Worth, McNamara of Waco, Nohr- mann of Gonzales, Monkhouse of Uvalde, Ragsdale of Crockett, Taylor of Kerens, Volgt of New Braunfels and Wlnfree of Houston, Tho no votes were oast by Repre- aentatlve Segrist of Dallas, Newell of Eliasville, toggins of Goodrich and Hardln of Prairie Hill. Gambling Evil Secondary Representative Ragadale, the bill's author, pointed out that racing would be Instituted only in those counties which voted for it. : "To my mind the gambling evil IB secondary to development of a, large new industry, that of raising thoroughbred horses," he said. "And I feel that the better solution of tho bling problem, like liquor, is jlatlon Instead of prohibition." r. L. R. Scarborough of Fort orth, president of the Southern iptist convention; Dr. W. D. Brad- leld of Southern Methodist university, Dallas; Dr. J. M. Dawson, itruatee of Baylor university, Waco; W, B. McClure, Fort Worth plumbing contractor, and Rep, J. Dryan Bradbury of Abilene were among those appearing in opposition to the proposal. ."We have no right to prostitute ~ the morals of the land," Dr. Dawson contended, "for the paltry sum racing would bring to the state .treasury." Speakers favoring the proposal included Clint Padgett of Waco, Ben Settegast of Houston, Floyd west of Richardson and Alfred MoKnlght of Fort Worth. The committee killed a motion to amend tho bill so dog racing also would be legalized. Hembers of Corbet PTA Held alenVtine Party Tuesday Night liCORBET, Feb.

The legislative group last night listened to opponents of the proposal for three hours, then, without discussion or action on the bills, recessed until this afternoon. They decided to allow proponents, who consumed a night hearing a week ago, brief period for rebuttals. . Opponent! charged an Increase In the load limit would wreck the state's transportation system, stifle small town businesses, seriously injure the welfare of the port city of Galveston, crowd roads with huge trucks menacing the safety of the travelling public Including school buses, put railroads out of business, crush highway roadbeds, break down bridges and kill off In* land cotton compresses. The hearing wns marked by two outbreaks of cheers mingled with boos. The first occurred when J. J. Youngblood, school teacher from Hart, suggested the trucks build their'own roads and "let us travel safely, on the ones our taxes made possible." "If the trucks want to haul bigger loads," he asserted, "let them build their own traffic lanes so we and our children can travel on ours. Safety Teaching Bo Nullified "We are teaching safety to the children In our public schools with text books that cost the state $250,000. It would seem highly Inconsistent if this legislature would turn loose the heavy, ruthless, reckless traffic which crushed our highways before the 7,000-pound law was enacted." Youngblood claimed that before 1931, big trucks "demanded 'more than half the road and menaced thousands of lives." He expressed belief lifting the limit would cause railroads to remove their tracks resulting in loss of thousands of dollars taxes. The second demonstration came after a man from the heart of the area which apparently most wante to increase the load limit appeared against the proposal. H. E. Wittenberg, McAllen fruit dealer, admitted it was "unpopular" to oppose the proposed legislation in the Rio Grande valley citrus growing area, told the committee: Chiseling Truck Drivers "A bunch of chiseling truck drivers, buying and peddling sacks of fruit for whatever they can, have ruined our markets. We have lost the Texas markets and those In six other states but we can still sell carload lots to some. "If you increase the limit, however, we might los? them. I believe two-thirds of the people In the valley don't know whether they want the load limit Increased or not. I'm pretty sure two-thirds of the shippers would like to see the trucks eliminated altogether so they could build up the market." A. L. Reed of Dallas, representing compressors, urged the committee to act with caution, saying abolishment of the limit on trucks might destroy the balance existing among transportation industries. "These bills would put the big cotton trucks back on the highways and wholesalers would replace three small trucks with one big one," he said. He quoted figures indicating truck lines had increased their highway mileage in Texas the past few years Intended to show they were not suffering from the law. Railroads In Bad Way. Reed said about 30 per cent of railroad mileage in the country was involved in bankruptcy proceedings Reed and other speakers oritlclz- ed"gypsy" truckers who, they claim were interested solely in transportation profits. Tragic consequences of lifting the road limit in Galveston were predicted by B. A. Gritta, president of the labor council in that city. "Practically everybody in Galveston lives directly or Indirectly off the transportation industry," Grita said. "Abolishing the load limit would take away part of the living of-every person in that city. The big trucks would stop in Houston and the result would be that more of us would bo on WPA and the relief rolls and living off taxpayers money. Our city has a natural port and other artificial ports have drained heavily on us already." 'Hacris Kempner, president of the Galveaton Cotton Exchange, said the move would greatly impair or destroy the city's port facilities, abolish tax-paying railroads and place an additional menace on the highways. Joe Steadham of Austin, legislative representative of the railroad brotherhoods, and former attorney General Claude Pollard of Austin, railroad attorney, spoke for the rail carriers. <i Attorney General Rules Borrowing Constitutional AUSTIN, Feb. 15.—W)—Attorney General Gerald C. Mann ruled today a bill authorizing the old age pension administration to bor'row $900,000 was constitutional. The oplnon had been requested by Governor W. Lee O'Danel after tho bill had passed both houses of the legislature. The money Is needed to relieve a financial tight in old age assistance and continue payments to Texas' old folks. The attorney general held the pro. posed issues of interest-bearing warrants "constitutes a valid exercise of legislative authority under the constitution." He noted the constitution forbade creating a debt on behalf of the state, except to supply casual deficiencies, and continued: "Our supreme court has repeatedly held Issuance of warrants by the state, county or municipality in anticipation of current revenue does not create a debt so as to oome within the prohibition of this and related constitutional provisions." In 1036, he said, the legislature authorized issuance of $3,000,000 worth of warrants in lieu of cash old age benefit paymenta. Use a. .Daily Sun Want Ad /or quick Results,' v '. T HUNTER (Continued From Page One) port ant highway commission from the same section of the state. Harry Hlnes, another commissioner, lives at Wichita Falls, in West Texas, and Dallas. Reddltt 'said East Texas senators last November had told O'Danlel they wanted an East Texan appointed to succeed John Wood, whose term expired yesterday, and O'Danlel had replied he thought East Texas was entitled to the appointment. Ho also quoted the governor as having said he would do nothing about the matter until after Feb. 1. "Consider hbw he has carried this out," Reddltt shouted. He closed with the declaration: "I don't like It and am going to fight It." Senator Gordon Burns of Hunts- vllle started his speech with a roar: "I want the people of Texas to know I'm again him! I'm again him teeth and toe nail, lock stock and barrel." Recalls Fist Fight He then recalled a fist fight In an Austin hotel several years ago, when Burns was a member of the house. Burns charged he was attack ed by a "gangster from Fort Worth" and that Hunter was In the lobby of the hotel at the time. "I still bear the wound! of that fight on my body," Burns said, He said that at the time Hun ter and others were in Austin trying to induce the legislature to create a separate oil and gas commission. Hunter would never make "a good dog catcher," Burns roared. "He'll never get my vote," he said. "Sam Houston 'would turn over in his grave' at the thing that has been done to East Texas, which always heretofore has been represented on th highway commls sion." Senator Clay Cotton of Palestine asserted the legislature had evidenced desire to cooperate with the governor, but "I have been unable to find any spirit of cooperation on the part of the governor with the legislature." "The house yesterday asked him to appear before a committee and explain his transaction tax, but he refused. "I ask If that Is cooperation?" No Threat From East Texas. He said there had been no threat from East Texas senators to the governor concerning his selection of a highway commia sioner, but only "a spirit of cooperation." "Instead of cooperating with the legislature," Cotton declared, "it seems that the governor wants to create a breach, and make war on legislators elected by the people." Senator Allan Shivers of Port Arthur began by reading a newspaper editorial entitled "To Hell With East Texas," saying O'Dan- lel seemed to be going on that principle. "I dp not know Mr. Hunter personally," Shivers said, "but do know it is bad public policy when the great domain of East Texas is denied representative on the body which controls all the highways of the state." Referring to the account of the Burns fight, Shivers said that if a man had done what Burns had said "wiis done to him," he "would never vote for him for any position." Kant Texas Slapped In Face. "All East Texas has been slapped in the face," he cried. "What will keep the next governor from putting three men from West Texas on the commission?" Hill said: "This Jack the Giant Killer who kills giants over the ether every Sunday morning deserves more sympathy than condemnation. What with these political effusions mixed with 'Nearer My God to Thee' I can't help but feel the Lord hasn't blessed him as he has the average man. "We ought to throw the mantle of charity around him." The Henderson senator said Gov. O'Daniel was trying to lead the senate into a trap because he wants to tell the people the legislature will not cooperate with him. Ho asserted the governor's transaction tax proposal was a "smoke screen In hide behind" because he knew the legislature would not accept 'it. Kndlo Programs Criticized. He sharply criticized some of the governor's radio programs, saying In part: "He has nothing of the tradition of Texas in his heart. "When he gets on the radio and dedicates a song to a convicted negro murderer I think- the mantle of charity should be thrown around him because I know he has gone to school with them (negroes) up there where white people think negroes are as good as they are, "If we see fit to abolish tho death penalty as he has suggested and we find It necessary to hang a few negro rapists to East Texas pine trees I would not be surprised if he dedicated songs to them," No word in defense of the appointment was heard until Sen, Collie arouse and In almost conversational tones said he thought some of the criticism ho had heard was unfortunate. He admitted the governor had consulted with him on the Hunter appointment and contended other senators could "advise" with tho governor before it considered confirmation, Reasoning: Not Unsound. Collie said the governor's reasoning on regional classification was not without justification, asserting two South Texans were named to the Livestock Sanitary commission "when trie law creating the commission specifically states one each should come from West East and South Texas. "There was no senate comment about that," he said, "yet the law with reference to the highway commission simply says the commissioners ehall come from different sections." "If this senate would turn down a man of his (Hunter's) character it would be held In disrepute by the people of Texas," he added. Answering a question from Sen. Penrose Metcalfe of San Angelo, Collie said Hunter in fact. had spent much of hla time during recent years in East Texas where he has oil Interests. "Mr. Hunter's character needs no defense hero," ho said. Violating' Own Rules, Sen J. Franklin Speara of San Antonio suggested the senate was violating its own rules by discussing tho nominee in open..session. A senate rule sgyg confir- matlon of nominees shall be in executive session. 'I don't agree with all tho statements made about O'Danlel either, especially when he is not here to answer," he said. He added: "I congratulate him on one thing. Whenever we have thrown things back Into his face not one word has he said about us." ' Sen Morris Roberts of Pottus rose to Inquire when had the senate thrown anything back at tho governor or slapped him. "I rather think he got spanked pretty hard this morning," Spears retorted. Ho explained in the course of his remarks some newspapers had referred to tho senate "slapping" the governor and he •was using that vernacular language. Kick in Seat Pants Says Senator Pace AUSTIN, Feb. 16.— (/P)— Son. Will Pace of Tyler assorted In the senate today Gov. W. Lee O'Danlel gave the people of East Texaa "a kick In the seat of the pants" by naming J. C. Hunter of Abilene to the state highway GOVERNMENT PLANS DOUBLE BORROWING PfltfERSJF BRITAIN HUGE REARMAMENT PROGRAM TO COST $2,500,000,000 IN 1939 ALONE LONDON, Feb. 15.—W —The government announced today that its borrowing powers to* finance Britain's huge rearmament program would be doubled, with the limit raised from 200,000,- commission. He said the governor's unexpected action in naming a West Texas to the post forced him to dub O'Danlel a "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." He was speaking on personal privilege after the governor sent to the senate his nomination of Hunter, together with a message in which the Chief Executive pointed out he had attempted to appoint Can- P. Collins of Dallas whom he thought was an East Texas but the senate had rejected Collins on regional grounds. Referring to a Chamber of Commerce regional map which the gov.ernor attached to the message, Pace said it was the governor's "number one alibi.' "Everyone knows that map has been in existence for 10 years and It was made for tariff pur poses—not highways," he said. don't know whether Hunter get on the commission or he said In ref- Huntor nomlna- I will not but he will not with my sup- part," Pace said. •Chorus of "Among." This statement brought a chorus of "amcns" from Sent. Hill of Henderson, Burns of Hunts- vtlle and Gotten of Palestine. Pace asserted Collins had attempted to get the senate to reconsider his nomination and that Collins told him and Sen. John Reddltt of Lufkln a man from West Texas would be named if the upper branch would not reconsider Collins. "I say that was a threat and ho must have had authority to make it," Pace said. "This Is a kick in the seat of the pants of everybody who lives In East Texas,' erenco to the tlon. From the northern boundary of East Texas to the Gulf of Mexico there are many men who would have made admirable appointees. Wo assumed he (the governor) would let us advise with him on the appointee. He said on the radio and in the newspa- pres there is a fine spirit of cooperation between him and the legislature • but he's the one who made the first dash at rushing away from cooperation with a group in the senate toward carrying out a worthwhile program for the entire state. Swift Hick In the Panto. 'We made every conciliatory effort and he's given us a swift kick in the pants." Pace said that he and other East Texas senators met with O'- Danlel about Dec. 1 at which time the governor said he would not make up his mind on the appointee until Feb. 1 or 15 but soon thereafter found out the matter had been taken up with Collins and the appointment was to bo hurried up: He emphasized he did not question Hunter's qualifications for the position. The governor's message revealed he had suggested the senate adopt a resolution defining region- 000 000) pounds ($1,000,000,to 400,000,000 pounds $V 000,000,000). Sir John Simon, chancellor of the exchequer, told the house of commons a bill would be Introduced In the house to .legalize this increase, which he said was needed to meet defense expenditures, expected to reach 500,000,00 pounds $2,500,000,000) in 1939 alone. When Brltalns' arms program was announced Feb. 16, 1937, the cost was set officially at $7,500,000,000 for five years, hut subsequent statements by government leaders indicated that would be increased probably by as mush as BO per cent. Sir John said Britain's defense expenditure for the fiscal year 1939-40 would be "some S32 million sterling"—$2,660,000,000. He recalled that the decision taken in 1937 to borrow 400,000,000 pounds $2,000,000,000) over a period of five years for the arms program was "by no moans final," and pointed out that on the five- year basis only 80,000,000 pounds of that would bo available to meet the 1939-40 expenditure. (The fiscal year ends March 81.) Prime Minister Chamberlain told the house recognition of the Insurgents as the legal govern-, ment of Span was "still under consideration" but .the cabinet was reported to have agreed In principle on such action at on appropriate- moment.

POPE PIUS BURIED BENEATH ALTAR OF ST. PETER'S TODAY LAST RITES~REACH CLIMAX AS BISHOPS AND CARDINALS PAY HOMAGE VATICAN CmrT Feb. 14.—W)— Pope Pius XI was buried today beneath the great central altar of St. Peter's cathedoral. His triple casket, wrapped In red wool, was lowered to a final resting place In moving, semi-private ceremonies lasting an hour and a half. The last rites reached a climax as cardinals and bishops, many of them aged and most of them appointees of Pone Plus, filed slowly past the casket. Over It each made the sign of the cross. Then the casket was .carried in a procession, preceded by a 'crucl- flx hearer and long lines of lighted candles. Before the altar of the confession, under the Immense dome of St. Peter's, the cortege halted. Hero a framework with ropes and pulleys .had been erected -beside a sunken altar floor, which was level \yllh the cathedral grottoes. The casket was lowered to a funeral carriage. While the choir sang its last notes the casket was rolled into the grottoes, to rest near the tomb of Piux XI's two immediate predecessors, Benedict XV and Plus X. His tomb was under the great altar where only a pope celebrates mass. At this altar, during his seventeen-year pontificate, Plus had officiated at the church's most solemn and moving ceremonies. Hundreds of thousands, of the faithful had watched him there as he performed his duties as Holy Father of the Catholic, world. Today's entombment ritual, conducted behind closed doors, contrasted strikingly with the pomp of the living pope's appearances In St. Peter's. The great crowds of those appearances — often numbering more than 50,000—were missing. There wore comparatively few invited mourners—cardinals bishops and other prelates of the Papal court diplomats and Papal aristocrats.
