It is the first time the annual band contests have come to Pama and everyone hopes that the three-day visit of the contestants will be sudh that the association will wish to return here soon. Upwards of a hnlf hundred bands and orchestras from schools in 36 Panhandle counties are here for the biggest district school music event of the year. A great amount of hard work has been done by Winston Savage, general contest director, and his assistants to make the meeting a successful one. Nothing has been left undone to entertain the visitors. • • Incidentally, here is a splendid opportunity to hear in concert some of Texas' outstanding school bands, orchestras and soloists. Morning, afternoon and evening sessions will be held ; through Saturday.

Panrpa extends a warm welcorne''to the competing' musicians and the many visitors who have come with them. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Pamp Lions today marxed the tenth anniversary of their club birth with appropriate ceremonies at their weekly noonday luncheon in First Methodist Church. This -progressive civic organization is in line for congratulations for having reached its tenth milestone as a very important adjunct to the life of:;the community. Second oldest of Pampa's civic luncheon chit's, the Lions have played a vital role in city advafititement and have shown a marked growth down .^ through the years. The^ path of the club's progress was outlined today;i'by speakers who drew a picture of its development from that day ten years ago this month:;when the first meeting was called to ordenby President Otto Studer, who again had that honor today. Five ^charter mem'oers who sat in on that first session in April, 1927, were honored at the luncheon today. They were William T. Fraser, Judge Ivy Duncan, Bonnie Rose, Bert Curry, and Mr. Studer. Because of illness, Mi 1 . Fraser was unable to attend'the birthday party. The'Pampa Lions club is an integral cog in the city's civic machinery. Its accomplishments stand as an historic example of community betterment lor those \v:io continue to take over the reins in the years to come. WASHINGTON LETTER By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON — A battle of mastadons would be more exciting but for sheer sustained suspense the blow by blow account.of Roosevelt vs. Hughes makes good reading these days, with Roosevelt at the moment rocked back on his heels by the five Wagner case decisions. One;.conclusion drawn here is that Roosevelt now is on the spot and not the Supreme Court. Should a new sit-down strike of importance develop, administration leaders could not wave their-arms in the senate and say President Roosevelt really had no part in the picture. His labor.board has "arrived" constitutionally. Inside dopesters are carrying around stories that ipne or two members of the court, although sympathetic with Hughes' defense of the court positions, suspect that he is motivated in part.-by politics. The story is that the chief justice .can't .wholly forget that he is a Republican and that Roosevelt is a Democrat. .; . . * * Ik- Number 2 conclusion is that John L. Lewis and Homer Martin of the automobile workres' union now must lay their cards on the table before the labor relations board instead of re- lyingi.on the sit-down strike to win their battles. They have not bothered to conceal then- own ^evasion of the law, privately justifying it on the- grounds that they could not be hampered; by its orderly procedure as long as Industry i openiy was flouting it. . . •: .• • * *.••*. • That same batch of Wagner case decisions elevEjtetJ' Henry Ford to the position of national numb&r one speaker-out-of-turn.

UK6 A COOP, COLO ALWAYS SAV? . YE Art" STUFF." SURE IS! GOOD COLD PLUMGe! V6S SIR? Centum, in>, ITCA Man About Manhattan By GEORGE TUCKER NEW YORK—I was going to write about Eddie Rickenbacker's party at Dlnty. Moore's today, but somehow this, letter, from a mother on a Florida .pineapple plantation, seems more important than anything I can say,..', She has a daughter in New York of whom.she is very proud, an artist's moduli 22 years old. After the death of little Ronnie Gedeon she wrote this letter: ,:..." /. "Not long ago your column told of the fruitless, almost hopeless task that confronted young girls when they.came to New York in search of a career. You said that the odds against. success were 500 to 1, and now .'since the Gedeon child was slain my friends have been urging me.tp ask my daughter to come home. "I. don't think I shall do this, but I thought I'd tell you about her and why I ,am content for her to remain in your city. This is my daughter's third year in New York, as a model, and she is doing well. She knew Ronnie Gedeon, as dozens of other models did, and when Ronnie was killed she wrote me that she and everyone else were so stunned that for days they scarcely could think coherently. , "She said in her letter: 'As you know,, mother, my roommate is Doris, and her mother has asked her to come home. She lives in Portland, and is leaving at the end of the week. If I thought that my being here would make you unhappy, I would come home, too, but I do want to stay. A long time ago I told you that you would never have to have any real worries about me. Remember? It was the night I left, and we were in Miami. I haven't changed, Mother.' ''And so, Mr. Reporter, my daughter is going to remain in New York, and I believe in her just as I would if she were here on the plantation with me. There must be mothers all over this country with daughters like mine who are troubled and who, in fancy, are translating this horrible crime in terms of their daughters and themselves. Such understandable yet pathetic, useless anguish! "Long, long ago I learned that cities and climates and towns never really matter—it is only we ourselves who determine how things are going to work out.' Shakespeare said this much, much better, and he meant thpt there wasn't much chance of harm coming to you if you were true to'yourself. With this in mind, don't you think I am right in having faith in my daughter's judgment, and in taking prid,e in having such a daughter as I have?" Yes, Ma'am, I do! People You Know By ARCHER FULLINGIM If you got up early this week you may have seen children alll over town going to band rehearsals long before you went to work. Yesterday morning the red building on the high school campus was fairly popping with martial music and overtures by seven o'clock—practicing for the contests. And children talk about "going out on tower." And the band directors of the city are harried and,, harrassed. Today at 7:30 a. m. there were four contests going at once, and it'll be like that until nearly midnight. The local directors are chairmen of this or that committee, and besides they have their own bands to keep a finger on. They've been practicing the contest numbers for three weeks; the directors have been practicing with the bands by day and the soloists by night. Several of the bands have been hard hit by mumps— one director had no mumps victims yesterday, but he was afraid there would be before today. Then there are the contest pieces. Both the children and the directors play them in their sleep. But the hardest job began today. The directors will be the busiest men in town and their only regret is that they can't be three or four places at once. But don't pity these directors and the young musicians; they've been bitten by the bug; they enjoy it. How's Your Health? Edited by DR.

That's an informal organization of directors. It doesn't hold meetings, collect dues, or give parties. It does all its business by telephone. When W. S. Van Dyke, for instance, finishes with an oldtimer in one of his films, he gets on the 'phone and calls one of the other "members" to let him know. If that director hasn't a spot available, one of the others has, and the word gets around. That way the people who were yesterday's stars get a fairly consistent break. Former Extras This little sunshine - dispensing group is composed of directors who used to be, many of them, extras when the people they're helping were big shots. Among them are Van : Dyke, Richard Wallace, James Hogan, John Ford, Wesley Ruggles, Al Hall, Norman Taurog, Rozert Z. Leonard and Lewis Milestone. Hogan had just finished "placing" a fairly well known comedian—who had had only two days work in the past four months—when I called on him for some of those early movie yarns that lend so much color to this industry. "Most of us lived in a boarding house just off what is now Hollywood boulevard business section," he said. "Two dollars a month apiece for lodgings. Milestone lived in a cutting room—he was in charge there, at night, with a broom. Sometimes I'd sleep In Priscilla Dean's dressing room at the studio—slept on a cane-bottomed couch and when I got up my back looked like a waffle. We didn't always have the $2 for the boarding house. Most of us were cowboy-and-Indian extras. Got $1.60 a day—-the dime for carfare. You were a big shot if you made $3 a day."

By doing so, he may obviate serious complications and may help to arrest disease changes which, if neglected, threaten his health, his limbs and his life. The history common to such patients is usually somewhat as follows: Up'on walking a given distance, say a quarter of a*mile, either at a normal pace or possibly while walking a little faster or uphill, the patient experiences cramps and pains in the calf, in the sole of the foot, or in both.* These sensations, we know, arise out of the failure of the blood supply to the legs to keep pace with the physioologic requirements of the muscles exercised. Should the patient stop walking and rest a while, the pain will disappear and he can resume his walking, only of course to lave the symptoms reappear after a variable period. These symptoms are called claudi- cation, or more properly, intermittent claudication. The disturbance n peripheral circulation may be due ;o arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), with consequent narrowing of the blood vessels; to spasms of the blood vessels which cause in these nstances a temporary narrowing of ;he calibre of the blood vessels, or to he more serious disease of the blood vessels known as Buerger's disease (thromboangiitis obliterans). It is important that a definite diagnosis be made of the cause of the :laudication. for treatment varies according to the cause. Also,' the pa^ tient must learn to appreciate the lazards which attend disturbances of peripheral circulation. Particularly nust he learn to take scrupulous'care of his feet and to guard them against injury and infection. Because of the lessened blood circulation, the tissues of the lower extremities have a lower vitality. Slight infections which in a normal foot will heal spontaneously are likely in cases of diminished peripheral circulation to give rise to non-healing ulcers. Furthermore, gangrene or the local death of tissue is apt to follow small injuries. and Lee in the same film, was a Confederate soldier in the morning, and spent the afternoon 'in the Union ranks shooting at himself. The "boys" always stuck together —if one got a job the others trailed along, usually got jobs too. Once, when Hogan was an assistant director, Allan Dwan, spotted them, told Hogan he was tired of the same gang in all his pictures, ordered them fired. Mogan got 16 long black beards. It worked, until one of the beards fell off—just as its wearer was 'passing Dwan. Hogan, now directing "tight-wad," once was a producer, but very briefly. With Bernie Fineman and Benny Ziedman, he made that phenomenal hit of the silents, "Where Is My Wandering Boy Tonight?" A shoe-stringer, it made nearly a million. Hogan says practically every^• one in Hollywood had a share in it —and Mickey Nlelen gave his to his Chinese cook. Hogan, after the preview, sold his own share for $2i,oqo —to B. p. Schulberg.

A. .The "Bexar Archives" are an extensive compilation of the original provincial records of the Spanish province of Texas dating from 1*731, and are. now a. part of the library of the University of Texas. Q. How many courts of civil appeals are there in Texas, and where are tttey located? How many members have each court? A.

About two miles of grade was built out of Harrlsburg and a contract was made for cross ties, some of which were delivered, when the enterprise collapsed for lack of funds. Oen. Sidney Sherman, In 1848, acquired all the unsold Harrisburg town lots of the company, succeeded in Interesting northern capitalists and in February, 1850, obtained a charter for the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos and the Colorado Railroad, and by 1855 the road was completed 32 miles to Richmond. Associated with Gen. Sherman as incorporatofs were Gen. Hugh McLeod, William M. Rice, W. J. Hutchins and B. A. Shepherd. . Q. How was the first money obtained for the Texas Confederate Home? A. Some $3,000 was raised by pri^ vate subscription and paid on the $4,000 purchase price for some 17 acres of the present site, on Feb. 19, Idse, and a "Grand Gift Concert and Lottery" was held Dec. 27-29, that netted the camp $10,851.67. After a struggling support, the Legislature took over the institution March 6, 1891.

So They Say: I think they held out on me, I could have eaten more. —WILLIAM GUZAN, Chicagq,_who ate 12 full meals in a restaurant which offered "All you can eat for 50c." The animal has no more lost Us usefulness when its leg is broken than a human has. Fractures heal quite as rapidly, and almost as quickly as in humans. —DR. PETER WALKER, Cincinnati dentist, who has successfully cured two racing horses of broken legs. I've seen things like that in the World war and think they are lies and propaganda for more fights. —EMIL COHAUPT, Youngstown, World war veteran who dislikes the war pictures in the newspapers. A good fight between baseball players on the field is okay, within bounds. —FORD PRICK, president, National League. <» More than 110,000 big game animals were counted in Wyoming during a game census taken in 1936. A white leghorn hen, owned by a Marysville, Kas., farmer, lecently laid an egg with the numeral "12" plainly Inscribed on the shell. Thfe, That Aftd For the last few days 1 have had something to say regarding good manners, and have called attention to a few of those points seldom stressed in works on etiquette. Now 1 am going to leave this field of * study f6r a while; but tiefdrb do^ ing so, wish to make two {Jtactlfial suggestions. cJood manners must be a part 6f > our very nature, in other Words, a kindly attitude toward all people will go farther In helping Us 'get along with good grace that! all the 1 varied details of custom prac'tlce'd purely from a sense of duty. When we attend to the nice points iii jib* cial usage through sympathetic appreciation of others, our maiin'erS become spontaneous. Too often we think of society as „ the place to develop our manners. This is a serious mistake. The home is the school room for the most effective training in etiquette. One , t cannot hope to execute a smooth technique in good manners when out in society if such graces are not constant practices in the home. READING And Writing By John Sclby First a word from Ludwlg Lewisohn on his changing Idea of literary form and method: "I am persuaded, despite many apparent signs to the contrary, that naturalism or realism as a method .. . . is passing. The complicated and tragic character of the age requires a different kind of expression. Prose is moving nearer to poetry In the larger sense and story nearer to myth, precisely as (analogously) thought is moving nearer to what is . called roughly faith, and science nearer to religion." The reflection of this idea is to be found in earlier books of Lewisohn's, and it Is to be found In his new novel — "Trumpet of Jubilee." But this magnificlent work is In no sense a modern fairy tale. Lewisohn does not mean that he discards all the advantages of close observation and direct, literal statement. He has waited what is (for a writer) rather a long time to do his novel on the Jewish situation In Germany. If the wait is at all responsible for the superlative quality of the book, it is a shame some other writers were not as slow. I have steadfastly refused to judge Germany until I could re-visit her and see for myself, this is the first novel by a Jew expressing the Jewish side of what has happened that has been utterly convincing to me. And a book like "Trumpet of Jubilee" can be judged only on a personal, basis. Its subject is too much alive, too actual, too fiery to be appraised in general terms. It is simply the story of what happened to a Jewish family in Berlin, of the tragic death of a Jew who believed he was a German first of all, and what later happened to his family. The framework means very little; the story has been written many times since 1933. It is the universal values which the author has put into the book which mean something, and it is a triumph to find that these values are hot expressed senteniously; that the book remains a novel, though more powerful than any tract. "Trumpet of Jubilee," by Ludwig Lewisohn (Harpers; $2.50).
