House Passes Second Bill To Strengthen Enforcement Of Oil Rules 'SHOW TO FORCE GRADUATES OF COLLEGES TO TAKE EXAMS AUSTIN, Feb. 1?,. r»P)—The Texas house moved swiftly today to strengthen enforcement of oil conservation regulations. It passed, the second of two bills to amend court procedure to provide a further check on Issuance of injunctions by district courts restraining the 1 Texas railroad commission from enforcing its orders. The bill would give the supreme court original jurisdiction over prohibitory writs granted by district courts. While it was designed to apply particularly to oil injunction^, the bill also would affect Injunctions seeking to restrain enforcement of other state laws. The house previously had sent the senate a bill to limit injunctiv-s powers of district courts. It would require that notice of application for injunction be served on the state and would forbid district courts to grant injunctions on ex- parte teistlmony. Both bills received a sufficient majority in the house to make them effective immediately if passed by a two-thirds vote in the senate. The bills were suggested by the attorney general's department and advocated by Governor James V. Allred. T'he senate was idle, Its members attending funeral services for Thomas Finley Hughston, father of '-Senator • Wallace Hughs-? ton, at Piano. The house engrossed, after sharp debate, a bill to require law school graduates to take the state bar examination, a move to raise standards of Bar Association ' personnel by stamping out what were termed "diploma mills." "If the great University of Texas .can't turn out men capable of practicing law without taking an additional examination we ought to te'ar it down," Representative W. E. Pope of Corpus Christ! commented. "The public is not satisfied with personnel of the bur," Representa- Sce OIL BILL, Page G Chief Appeals For Observance Of Traffic Laws Chief of Police Art Hurst is fast getting a head of gray hair, and it is nothing.but the traffic situation in Pampa that is the cause. With only one traffic trying to handle the "wildest bunch of motorists in'the country," the chief has decided-to ask the public to assist him in trying to curb speeding, reckless driving, and other forms of tiaffic violations, by being careful. The chief is also asking motorists to check their lights. Many accidents have been caused by having no lights, one headlight, or no tail light. The police department will have to start arresting motorists driving with improper lights, and that will mean a, fine. There have been a dozen minor accidents in the city during the last week. Most of them have been caused by speeding or careless driving. If the practice is not curbed, there will be major accidents. Chief Hurst urges Pampa motorists to be more careful. He also urges sane motorists to take the numbers of cars violating the law and turn them over to the police. Not all the traffic faults go to the motorists, however. Jay-walking has become a problem. Every day dozens of persons fail to wait for a green light to cross the street. Pedestrians should be. even more careful crossing intersections where there are no lights. Crossing in the middle of the block should also be discouraged. I Heard .. Mrs. Carson Loftus tell about two little neighbor boys who were playing "bandits." One said to the other, "You can't be no policeman! You're a bandit I Didn't you just get fired off the police force?" That Chief Clyde Gold drove the lengtfi of Hobart street scanning the tops of telephone and light poles, searching fpi' a cat that had been "flag pole sitting" for two days. The chief failed to find the cat. He would like the person who called the fire station to call again, giving the address where tlje oat is located, Where Memory Of Lincoln Lives Today <Photo by Marcaret Bourkc-White; Copyrigh't, 1935, NEA Service, Inc.)

FLEINGTON, N. J., Feb. 12.— The state today asked Bruno Richard Hauptmann's murder Jury to "put him out of way" as a. menace." Attorney General David T.

"Now, the attendant doesn't like to do It," he told the jury, "but that bear is a menace, and they put him out of the way. "That's what you have got to do with this fellow!" About circumstantial evidence, read: "When it starts to scream all the lip evidence in the world can't overcome it." FLEMINGTON, N.
