Gorrell Jr., At Tulsa last Thanksgiving, was flssalled caustically today in a brief by Assistant Attorney General Smith C. Matson to the state criminal court of appeals. Matson said Kenfiamer was- fortu- hate In escaping conviction of murder, attacked his twin defenses of insanity and self-defense as inconsistent, and asked the court to force the 19-year-old son of Federal Judge Franklin E. Kennamer back to the McAlester prison. Oral argument of Kennamer's appeal has been set for October 1. Kennamer entered the state penitentiary March 4 but was released on bond several weeks later. "The defendant has taken the position that he will serve no time," the state's brief said. "The prophecy of Mr. Gllmer (W. F. Gilmer Jr.. assistant Tulsa county attorney) that if a mere sentence in the penitentiary should be returned, it would be only a question of tim° until the defendant would be at liberty, has been well fulfilled: "... We think the jury would have been justified in returning a verdict of guilty of murder in this case." Kennamer was convicted at Paw- nes in February after a change of venue had been allowed. The youth contended he shot Gorrell, Tulsa dsntal student, to thwart an extortion plot whose object was to obtain $20,000 from H. F. Wilcox, Tulsa oil man, unc'er threat of harm to his daughter, Virginia. Kennamer's attorneys have sought a new trial contending the conduct of Mrs. O. L. Harmon, witness who declined to testify for the slate, prejudiced jurors. Matson said the prosecution sought to have the court declare a mistrial and begin again. ALLEN (Continued From Page 1) ALLRED URGES LEGISLATURE TO SPEAK 'SOFTLY, CONSIDERATELY' AUSTIN, Sept. 20. (/P)—Just what Governor Allred had In mind when he asked the legislature to "speak thoughtfully, considerately and softly at all times" has puzzled members. In view of the certain pyrotechnics over liquor regulation, the adjuration to speak "softly" caused some amusement. The governor himself laughed during comment on his first message of the special session. IMAPKET The ultra-modern capitol of Louisiana, built by Senator Huey Long, then governor, was under discussion. There was talk of the cafeteria, the barber shop, the bronze doors leading to the legislative chambers and the electrical voting aoaratus. It was explained a board similar to that in the legislative halls on which the votes were registered also was Installed in the governor's office, giving him quick Information on progress of legislation. "That sounds fine," said a Texas senator. "But what we need here is a machine to show the senate and house' what is going on in the governor's office. Am Can Am Rad .

Barnsdall Ben Avia Elbert Hoop.er, former assistant attorney general, was explaining one of the liquor regulations bills to the senate state affairs committee. He said the bill did not apply to brews of less than four ner cent alcohol content by weight, and therefore not to 3.2 beer. "There's plenty of home brew in mv district with 104 per c<mt alcohol," said Senator Tom Deberry of Bogata. Gerald Mann left for -Washington and his new job as representative of the Texas planning board without his picture of General Robert E. Lee. A great admirer of the southern leader, Mann had a portrait hanging just behind his desk in the secretary of state's office. "I don't want to lose that picture," Mann said, soon after his resignation. "I'm not sure 'what. might happen to it in Washington." So it still hangs In the secretary's office. _•».

"Jimmy, I thought you and Wnde Martin had agreed to do as I said," said the governor in agitation as they entered his office in the state house at Baton Rouge I after they had made their announcements in New Orleans. But Martin and Noe emerged smiling and apparently satisfied and the governor went out of the state house through a rear exit and resumed his conferences at the mansion. There he met Seymour Weiss, one of Long's closest friends, who was reported as looking unfavorably on the Nos candidacy. They engaged In a long conference. Down In Houme, Speaker of the House Allen Ellender roused himself from a sick bed to express disbelief that Noe had made his announcement. Ellender also is a candidate for governor and believed that Governor Allen had fa- fored his candidacy. He was shocknd when Noe Issued a statement saying Allen had endorsed him. Allen holds the whip hand by authority of Huey Long's dictatorial laws and Is generally believed to be in a position to make or break any candidate. Following the Noc-Martln' announcement, E. A. Con way, secretary of state; L. B. Baynard, state auditor; Lucille May Grace, registrar of the slate land office and 8. H. Harris, superintendent of education, declared their candidacies for reelection. Other candidates were expected to announce without delay Gerald L. K.

Mrs. Mooney identified a, blue serge suit, with white buttons around the jacket, as the one she wore the day of the bombing. John F. Finerty of Mooney counsel said the suit was introduced "to impeach the testimony" of Mrs. Mellie Edeau, one of the prosecution witnesses at Mooney's trial. Mrs. Edeau testified at Mooney's trial that she saw him and Mrs. Mooney going toward the scene of the bombing shortly before it occurred.

Efforts are being directed through Marvin Jones to have this maximum raised. Those receiving WPA checks will not be eligible to receive surplus commodities which go to those on direct relief. Civic clubs and other groups are studying how children of relief families may be helped as they attend school. The first task will be to provide clothing and shoes for a large number unable to attend school, or who will be unable to do FO when cold weather arrives. Scores of children will need school lunches to protect their health. No federal or state funds will be available for such lunches. Despite the fact that the federal government is spending billions. Pampa, Gray county, and several other counties in this district are faced with the most serious relief problem of all time. VATICAN (Continued Prom tftge 1) tary penalties against Italy in the event of war with fithiopia. LONDON, Sept. 20. (IP)— Can Europe, still suffering: financial pangs from the world war, support another major conflict? From Rome came today the answer "yes" by an Italian government spokesman, who said Italy was ready to go ahead with its East African program "without economic help from anyone." A survey In European financial circles disclosed that Italy's fascist legions might be forced to make good that claim, and that what amounts to private financial sanctions already have been virtually applied against Italy by some other nations of Europe. To borrow Cawin Coolldge's phrase In reference to European war debts, the survey indicated Italy would have to "hire her own money" to carry on an assault against Ethiopia. French pockets are empty to foreign borrowers, said reports from Paris, especially If money was wanted for war. "If there is any lending power left In the French pocket, the French government Itself needs it,' 1 said tine financial authority In Paris.

New Orleans needed only one more victory today to enter the finals of the Shaughnessy play-off for the Southern association baseball championship at the expense of Memphis but Manager Larry Gilbert declined to grow optimistic. Headed for New Orleans and the third game of the play-off series with the Chicks, the Pelican manager said he probably would delegate KOENECKE (Oontlnueo rrom page I) alcohol in Koenecke's organs indicated the Brooklyn outfielder was "In a second class of intoxication, when violence might appear."

The Chicks will be .tougher*" Manager Hoffman of Memphis says he still had "hopes." New Orleans defeated Memphis for the second straight time yesterday by a score of 9 to 3 while Atlanta and Nashville played to a bitter 7 to 7 tie in an 11-innlng deadlock. Atlanta still kept Its advantage, however, by virtue of winning the opener. The New Orleans-Memphis engagement was a pitcher's battle until the fifth inning when the Pels scored three runs off Nelson on three hits, two walks, and a sacrifice. Another three-run attack In the seventh eliminated Nelson from the picture. The Pels got two more runs off Greer who relieved him. Bill Thomas pitched steady baseball for New Orleans throughout. Byron Speece held Atlanta helpless for five innings as Nashville ran up a 6 to 0 lead which sent the Cracker ace hurler, Harry Kelley, to the showers. In the sixth, however, the Crackers bunched five hits for as many runs. The score was knotted at 7-all In the ninth and nobody was able to break the deadlock before dark. Atlanta immediately moved on to Nashville with the Vols to play them In their home park tonight.
