/DEFINITE PROMISES MADE IN REGARD TO HIGHWAY tlyittg fair from "Pan America" Pftrnpa officials who returned yesterday from Austin were encouraged over contacts made with the Texas Highway Commission relative to the Pampa-Bbrger-Dumas highway. In spite of the fact that no del mite promises were made. The delegation was successful in establishing the highway as the number 1 project of the entire Panhandle, the commission agreeing that the project is the most needed at this time In the entire Panhandle. Senator Clint C. Small, State Representative Jack Little of Amarillo and State Representative Max Boyer joined the Pampa-Panhandle- Borger-Stinnett and Dumas representatives in designating the high- Way as number 1 in the Panhandle. The delegation visited Governor James V. Allred Tuesday and reminded him of a promise made several months ago that his administration would give the project from Pampa to Borger active consideration as soon as the new highway commissioner was placed in office early in 1937. Governor Allred promised to discuss the urgent need with' the present commission and he predicted that the commission would be in position to work out something reltively soon in spite of the present financial condition of the department. Plans were worked out with the commission for the entire commission and the state engineer to visit Dumas, Stinnett, Borger and Pampa, May 7, having lunch here. An escort will bring the commission over the highway where they will be given an opportunity to see the need for improvement of the route. Details of the luncheon and other plans for improvement will be worked out in the next few days, by the highway committee of the Pampa chamber of commerce. Twenty-one Panhandle citizens appeared before the highway commission, including six from Pampa. They included: J. M. Collins, president; Garnet Reeves, manager; Reno Stlnson, member of the highway committee of the Pampa Chamber of Commerce; Sherman White, county judge; A. Carpenter and M.

SAN ANGELO, April 22 W 5 )—Another oil field appeared assured for the University of Texas today. In its northern Crane county holdings a well which swabbed 117 barrels of oil in 18 hours opened a field which seemed certain to add to the millions of dollars the university has realized from oil in five West Texas counties. The well was the Sinclair- Prairie Oil company's No. 1-24 University. Motorists contribute more to the support of Texas public schools than | any other class of taxpayer. Chile supplies from its nitrate j fields about 90 per cent of the world's J iodine. AUSTIN, April 22 (*)—The Court >f Criminal Appeals today denied a ehearlng for Dwight Beard, as- essed the death penalty in Dallas ounty for killing John B. Roberts, a former policeman, during a filling station holdup, Dec. 23, 1935. The court said it failed to find new evidence on which Beard based his plea or a new trial. The court affirmed a 25-year sen- ence against Charles S. RlcharHsbn, onvlced in Taylor county for shooing his son, Elga Richardson, Jan. , 1934, in Young county. The ap* pellate tribunal said it found • ho rror in the trial record. Reversed and remanded was the onvlction of Mrs. Nelle Harvey, alias Mrs. Thomas McNeal, assessed ,wo years for conviction in Red river :ounty of forgery. The case was eversed because the trial court reused a continuance asked by the defendant due to absence of a wlt- iess by whom she expected to prove she was not in Clarksville when the alleged offense occurred. Also reversed and remanded was he case of Arvie Webb of Newton county, give 1 !! 10 years for murder with malice. Trial court errors caused the reversal. The court reversed judgment of a Harris county criminal court and granted $5,000 ball for Sherwood Vln- son, charged with robbery by firearms, and remanded to jail without Dond after a habeas corpus hearing.

Hi? hcis re-' b.iseb;ill ,md is lool<- ( Uy The Assut-mted I'ross.) Texas municipal!'ii's .scratched in their treasuries Thursday to find funds to comply with the recently enacted minimum wage law for policemen and firemen or joined in a direct attack on the legislation. Fort Worth led off with a fight against the law itself, while other cities sought ways and means of paying. City officials at Fort Worth sent representatives to Austin to seek an amendment to the law exempting that municipality. They said compliance with the law, which became effective Monday with Gov. James V. Allred's signature, would leave no alternative but to reduce police and fire personnel 20 per cent to avoid increased salary costs of $140,000 to 8226,000. Under the law, cities of 75,000 must pay policemen and firemen a minimum of $150 a month. Policemen and firemen could not be worked more than 12 hours a day or 72 hours a week without time and a half overtime pay. A six-day week in all cities of more than 25,000 was provided. The law required a two- week vacation with pay in cities of more than 30,000. At Houston, City Comptroller Harry A. Giles admitted that he was stumped by the situation. There were were 321 firemen there drawing less than $150 and 145 policemen in the same category. City Attorney H. P. Kucera of Dallas went to Austin Thursday to urge Gov. Allred to submit an amendment to the law to the legislature. He said he hoped thereby to avert a possible 1937 tax increase. Employment of 57 more firemen anc an annual expenditure of from $170,000 to $200.000 was faced. City officials understood El Paso and Houston were also joining in the fight against the law. At Amarillo, all provisions of the new law were already in effect. A1 Wichita Falls, policemen were to gel an additional .7-day vacation. A week's vacation was already in effect. The Corpus Christ! police department has been observing the state law's provisions in regard to the clay off for about six months. Beaumont police and firemen have been getting two weeks vacation with pay, but the police force has ben working on a seven-day week basis. BELLED FELINE MOUNTAIN LAKES, N. J.
