TEN THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS,. Pampa, Texas FRIDAY EVENttfG, 8, 1935 WAS 0MATORS PLAN TO TAKE OIL CONTROL PLEA TO CONGRESS i £>ALLAS, Feb. 8 (/P) — Fifteen Texas oil operators, business men and bankers planned, to embark by plane for Washington today to plead for federal co-operation with the state forces in regulating a trouble- swept East Texas oil field. Appointed at a mass meeting here yesterday, the committee plans to appear before the house committee Oh foreign and interstate commerce with a resolution adopted calling for united efforts of state and federal governments in the control of illegal oil operations. A strong plea for passage of the Connally bill for interstate control of excess oil will bo made by the delegation. The resolution will inform house committee members that excess oil production could be handled at $200.000 annually thru control of Interstate shipments, "not much) more than the value of 'hot' oil produced in one day during the worst days of overproduction in the East Texas field." "Re-establishment of the federal tender board, given major credit for reducing 'hot' oil to a minimum in the past, and enactment or the Connally bill would not interfere with the state compact plan, nnd interstate control is essential to the pact plan," the resolution read. Leaders agreed the Connally bill should be passed first with the state compact plan, backed by Governor E. W. Marland of Oklahoma, to follow. The 'resolution said "hot oil would be eliminated by the simple method of eliminating it from commerce." W. Fred Weeks of Tyler, attorney for the Texas Petroleum Council and framer of the resolution, warned "if the courts render an adverse decision regarding control of railroad shipments by the state and if the Connally bill were not ena'cted within a week, the entire East Texas field would be opened." A resolution presented by Carl Estes of Iiongview, urging immediate passage of the Connally bill, was telegraphed to President Roosevelt and' Congressman Sam Rnyburn of Texas. Reference to Secretary Ickes as being desirous of establishing himself as "dictator of the oil industry in the event it is taken over by the federal government," was stricken out after a lively discussion over the resolution sent to Washington by telegraph. "Ickes will stick his foot in, and then he'll stick his leg in and pretty soon he'll have both legs in the oil industry," Estes said. A quiet suggestion from Nathan Adams, Dallas banker, "not to incur the ill will of Mr. Ickes," was generally agreed to and the reference to Ickes deleted. The committee named to make the Washington trip included Adams, Weeks, Bade W. Kangera of Henderson, Paul Headers of San Antonio, George A. Hill Jr. of Houston, Jake Sandefer of Breckenridge John Kilgore of Wichita Falls, Freeman W. Burford of Dallas, E. L, Smith of Mexia, Joo R. Pearson of Corsicana, Cecil Storey of Longview, Fred Horton of Greenville, Sam Ross of Kilgore, W. B. Hamilton of Wichita Falls, and Maxy Wilson of Overtoil. 0 gressional districts and taken to Washington for formal presentation to the United Stacs senate and to the houss of representatives. Mntt M. Sinnett, exalted ruler of Pampa Elks lodge No. 1573, has re- 'ceived an allotment tof petitions with instructions for local handling; a copy may be found at any time at Elks club, American Legion and Schneider hotel for those citizens who will want to sign. Legionnaires, chambers of commerce, other patriotic citizens will join the members of the Elks to see to it that these petitions are signed freely so that they may go on to Washington ns nearly 100 per cent representative of this community as possible. Thus there will be a demonstration of the aroused spirit of Americanism that exists in this country today. Calling for "the flaming spirit of a crusade," Michael F. Shannon, grand exalted ruler of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America, has launched a memoral to congress for legislation deemed necessary to eradicate communist and other subversive influences in the country. This determination came with full knowledge that subversive interests are being allowed to grow and spread unchecked by official action of our federal government and that corrective bills of two sessions of congress have been permitted to die in committee. A challenge to all units of the order came in the form of a resolution from the Elks of Concord, Mass., whose home stands almost on the spot where "the embattled farmers stood" on that memorable day in April, 1775. The petitions now in the hands of 1,400 Elk lodges throughout the country cover eight points of legislation: 1. Investigation of all subversive activities by the department of justice with ample funds provided to furnish personnel and cover expenses, with discretionary authority to publish facts concerning individuals or organizations seeking to overthrow the government by force or violence. 2. Outlawing organizations having for their purpose the overthow by force or violence of the American constitutional government. 3. Making it a felony to advocate, promote or encourage such overthrow. 4. Denying use of the mails to publications advocating such overthrow or affiliated with outlawed organizations. 6. Prohibit interstate transportation of such publications. 6. Making certain deportation of aliens seeking the overthrow of the United States government. 7. Denying entry into the United States of aliens known to be out of Harrriony ; witli American form of government. 8. Providing for revocation of naturalization of naturalized citizens advocating overthrow or change of government through force or vio- lenge. With cooperation of the American Legion, the Junior chamber of commerce, various service clubs and patriotic organizations, the citizens of each community will be afforded the opptortunity of ^igning, thus indicating to their congressman and senators the conclusion tliat the time is at hand to enact such legislative measure! as TrtU permanently remove the mpftce Of those who geek, the pvemurw of the govern- inept by forpe. ? or violence.

Montgomery, economics professor at the University or Texas has won the right to the title of "Texas brain truster No. 1." Dr. Montgomery is the author of the administration-endorsed public utility regulation bill offered recently in the Texas house of representatives. It was 61 legal-size pages long and is the Alpha and Omega on public utility regulation. It covered every subject relating to public utilities from organization to operation and dissolution. If anything was left out it would require an expert to find tho omission. Dr. Montgomery was selected by Governor James V. Allred to prepare a bill embracing the governor's ideas. The professor has been interested for,years in public utility regulation, particularly as it should be applied in Texas and has conducted extensive research into the question. He is a familiar figure in legislative halls. Most of his appearances have been on utility matters but lie also has appeared at request of committes to discuss other economic problems of government. To Dr. Montgomery the preparation of the administration bill was one of his crowning achievements. In private discussions he revealed it had been an ambition for 15 years to whip shape a regulatory measure. The bill, according to its author, represents the best thought in America on the controversial question of utility legislation. He spent weeks reading reports on the federal trade commission and other special boards established to inquire into different phases of utility operations. Several sections were written into the bill after lengthy consultation with government experts at Washington. One feature which attracted wide interest was the section devoted to state control over out-of- state holding companies operating in Texas through subsidiaries. The bill would declare subject to state regulation any foreign corporation that rendered legal, managerial engineering or financial services to a Texas chartered company. Members agreed the bill was one of the most far reaching ever introduced in the legislature on any subject and certainly the most volmuminous measure on public utility regulation. That Governor Allred intends to throw the full weight of his administration behind the bill in conformity with his campaign pledge to regulate public utilities, is celar- ly indicated. A few nights before the bill was introduced Governor Allred invited a group of members to the mansion to hear an explanation of the measure by Mr. Montgomery. He continued, this procedure until virtually every member of the house had been contacted. The general idea was to get house members thoroughly acquainted with the measure so that its bulk would not be confusing when offered on the floor. The administration apparently did not want any delay in the house to endanger arrival of the bill in the senate in 'time for action before the closing rush.

A RAPID-FIRE ROMANCE BY EVAN EVANS SYNOPSIS: In order to force Montana, called El Kectl in Mexico, to flee into Mexico with him, Mateo Rubriz plans to run him foul of the law. Mateo wants Montana to help him recover the emerald crown of Our Lady, stolen by the governor of his province. Montana, after various postponements, plans to marry Ruth Luv- ery, daughter of a wealthy ranch owner. But Ruth's father, after Montana breaks his promise not to ride the wild mare, Sally, has no faith in his prospective son-in- law. Chapter Seven WEDDING DAY Sunday morning on the Lavery ranch found the Montana Kid moving about in his room with a slight limp, but whistling at the work of incasing his long body and his strong shoulders in white shirt and collar, in socks of black silk, and in a fine blue-black serge, at last. Even as he knotted his necktie on his wedding day, he kept flexing his feet a little in the softness of his fine calf boots because he could not tell what guns might look at him before this day was ended. It was what he most disliked—an advertised appearance; and there Were plenty of men in the world who might want to take advantage of it. He would need three pairs of eyes with which to keep on guard this day; but that was what he had needed a great part of his life, and perhaps it was why he was whistling now. His stay on the Lavery ranch had been a quiet back-water, a pause in the hurry of the current that was headed towards some wild and unknown sea. Now that he was dressed, he looked quizzically at the brown face in the mirror and found that the blue-bright eyes were alert for danger rather than for happiness. Gray-headed Ransome, the foreman, poured tight and helpless into Sunday clothes, smoked a cigaret and watched his friend. "It'll be a great day," said Ransome. "A long day," corrected the Kid "Any bnzo might think," suggested Ransome, "that you wasn'l gunna step out with a beauty that had a coupla millions to float her.' "Might any uozo think that?" murmured Montana. "Any bozo might think," went on Ransome, heavily, frowning, "that you didn't give much of a damn about one of the prettiest girls in the world." The kid, instead of answering, looked at Ransome with eyes that had become the color of slate; then he picked up that pair of Colts with the extra long barrels and made them disappear inside his clothes with one of those swift, easy gestures which the eye could not follow very well. After that he went to Ran- somo and laid a light touch on his shoulder. "Old Ransome!" he said. "Yeah, old Ransome be damned," said the foreman. "What about old Montana, I'm asking?" Many other things were going on at the same time about the big Lavery house. There was Ruth Lavwy in her room, being draped in films of white. She smiled a good deal until the girl who was the best of her friends said to her, suddenly, whispering: "Ruth, are you smiling because you're happy, or just to please me?" "I'm happy, of course," answered Ruth Lavery. "But I'm frightened. Something is going to happen!" And in front of that house Richard Lavery senior was walking restlessly up and down, up and clown, scanning the horizon from time to time as though he expected a sign CLAUDEITE COLBERT POWERFUL! / £»> starved wopian'^fishling: against lier- hcr daughter's for a, love she t\<ure6 'not take; Hiding ft lovo she (tared not keep! of changing Weather to roll darkly up on the edge of the world. He turned almost expectantly towards a sudden rattle of hoofs that beat on the lower to-all and then revealed a rider on a sweating mustang. It was a young fellow with a look of anxiety, as though wild Indians might be behind him. He threw himself out of the saddle and ran to La very. "D'you know what's happened?" he gasped. "Jack Lascar—that yal- ler-faced feller called Lascar that showed up in town the other day— he's gone and nailed a notice on the bulletin-board in front of the post- office. I've copied it down." He pulled out a piece of paper and read aloud. Half the words were a gasping whisper and half were almost shouted. Everybody notice that wants to: Me, that is Jack Lascar, is going to stand out in the middle of the street in front of Hi-Bailey's blacksmith shop at ten-thirty this same morning and wait for the low yaller hound by name of Montana Kid. If he don't show up then and there, you all know what kind of a skunk he is. Jack Lascar. "Wait a moment," exclaimed Lavery. "Where's the sheriff? What does he mean by permitting open challenges in a place like Bentonville?" "The sheriff's out of town,' 'said the messenger. "Some of the boys have sent for him. He ought to be back by about ten-thirty. But I thought that you might want to know—-" "Get off the ranch!" cried Lav- cry. "Don't let Montana see you. If he should find out " He found that the rounded eyes of • the messenger • were peering straight past him and, turning, Richard Lavery saw Montana standing in the open door of the house. Above the white of the stiff collar his face looked browner and younger than ever. Montana was rolling a cigaret, letting his fingers see their own way, while he said: "You ride back and tell Jack Lascar that it's a little late for me to get his message, but I'm coming down there as fast as a good horse will take me. Tell him that I'll finish tho job I left half done a while back." He scratched the match, touched the flame to'the crimped end of the wheat-straw paper, and took in a good, deep breath of the smoke. His eyes had an absent look, as though he were considering a further answer. But the messenger jerked his head in understanding and ran back to his pony. It was something worth remembering during a life to be the connecting link between a Jack Lascar and a Montana. When. Montana got into the saddle and jpgged around the corner of the bam he saw that he would have to face all the music in one great burst. For on the veranda stood the assembled family down to the one- legged cook, with 1 a shimmer of white for Ruth Lavery in the center of the group, and her father tall and straight and forbidding beside her. Montana rode straight up to them and pulled off his hat.

(yp)—Two seasoned campaigners, Maureen Orcutt of Englewood, N. J., winner last year, and Jean Bauer of Providence, R. I., this year's medalist, were gallery choices today in the semifinals of the Miami Biltmore amateur women's golf tournament. Miss Orcutt faced Mrs. Joe Bydolek of Buffalo, while Miss Bauer was paired with Mrs. Lillian Zech of Chicago. Mrs. Zech tied her match with Fatty Berg, 18-year-old Minneapolis city champion, at the eighteenth, after trailing, and took the nineteenth with a par five. Mrs. Bydolek was three down to Ellamne Williams of Chicago, who is also 10, at the end of the tenth, but tier her up at the 17th, halved the eighteenth and grabbed the nineteenth.

BAWtlNOS, Associated *reSB Stiff Writer. CHICAGO, Feb. 6 0P» — Where there's a will there's a way to get a college education. College boys these days are doing everything from catching bullfrogs to acting as professional pallbearers to earn their way through the colleges and universities. Tne monthly or weekly check from back home is still mighty important in some instances, but a survey disclosed today that in some schools as many as 70 per cent of the students are working all or part time to earn the funds to finance their schooling. Many are "making the grade" with the assistance of the federal emergency relief adminis*" tration. Waiting on tables for their board and lodging and stoking furnaces in the wee small hours of the morning remain among the most popular methods, but the survey brought to light many others. At the University of North, Carolina some of the students help fatten their purses by catching bullfrogs and insects for experimental purposes. Of 3,400 students at Washington university, St. Louis, where one- third aip working their, way thru, several were found to b«"[irofessional pallbearers.
