t COSSICANA SEm-WEEKL* LIGHT, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1939. NINES 1 MURRAY '.' (Continued From Page One) Jess leader In contrast with most of the present leaders whom Mr. Mays termed "more followers and smellers than leaders." At the beginning of his address, Murray declared he learned much while in Navarro county that meant much to him in later life. He spoke of the toleration here because the people were more reasonable. Denounces New Deal. Punctuating his -address with quotations from history, law, the Bible and verse, the eloquent 4 speaker launched Into a fiery denunciation of- the new deal, the President and his advisers. He rapped the radio as a dangerous thing If it Is controlled and criticised newspapers for ,. being careful in not offending 4 their advertisers. He declared that civilization Is what Is In ths minds and hearts of the people and warned that the new dealers wanted to plunge America Into war to establish a dictatorship, and predicted that If America was drawn into a war, a Russian type of government would be established within twenty-four hours. He declared the same procedure was being carried out here as in Russia with the statement that in Russia objectors were being shot while here they are being starved. He declared the "ecqnomlc night" was not started under Hoover, but before that time. Some of the 4 causes were made by laws passed v fend some by the training of the 'people. He said that for decades schools did not teach the constitution and the generation not taught the constitution and laws Is the one now running the coun- ^ try and have "damned nigh ••' wrecked it." He said the educational system was too bookish, giving "too much knowledge and not enough wisdom." The speaker referred to new deal situations In former times In America and how succeeding administrations retrenched and returned to the government as orlglnaly intended. He rapped Uie—direct relief by the federal ,*.4vernment instead of going i through the states. He said it was a new kind of democracy of extravagant use of money. New Deal—Old Deal \- The new deal Is an old deal In some of the other countries and declared there was no excuse for government being in business and stated that the government could not compete with business because of politics and that private corporations could run the government business more economically than the government even to the post office department. He said the only excusu • the government had to go Into business was to break down an intolerable monoply, pubic wirks construction where It could not be constructed by private means, etc. Murray declared that the writ ers of the Constitution- had "hedged against a dictator in Washingtpn." He referred to England and America as the only nations with "habeas corpus" rights. Training his guns to another assault on the new deal, Governor Murray quoted historical 4 references to drive home his . attacks against the present setup. He termed the "bralntrust- ers' 1 to the Biblical Tower of Babel and the WPA Project No. 1 in history. He described the great wall of Babylon, 87 feet thick '7 and 350 feet high, calculated to '' make that city independent and safe. He termed the famous "hanging gardens" of Babylon as a WPA project, and then referred to Cyrus turning the river water into a lake and then marching his soldiers into the city to pillage and capture it. Hard times arrived In Egypt and the pyramids were - built, causing crushing taxation on the farmers and merchants and the later fall of that government. The Roman empire had- a new deal, he stated, about 98 A. D. . i when prices were fixed and re* lief for the poor was necessary. AH Want Pensions He said there was a tendency In America now that all get pensions and nobody will work. He , pointed out that Emperor Con- IT stantlne of Rome abolished the new deal there, but the decline came when he turned his far- flung empire over to his "empty- headed sons." "History repeats itself....God forbid that the United States be divided between Roosevelt's sons," he shouted; His address frequently brought applause from his hearers. Turning his attention to tha' provision of the constitution that provided that no title of nobility may bo conferred on a . citizen of this county without the con sent of congress and no gif from a king or ruler, he charged -that the wife of the preslden had received a gift from Spain. 1 Paying his caustic respects ti the scheduled visit of the King 'and Queen of England to the United States this summer, h pointed ou the constitution pro vldes the President may recelv ambassadors and other represent atlves from other nations. '"England knows the Preslden liken flattery and the monarch are coming here to twcedl America to pull England's .chesi nut's out of the fire," he shout ' ed, and voiced the opinion tha the recent visit of Anthony Eden former head of the British gov crnment, was to make the ar rangemonts. "Blue Buzzard" England had a new deal during the reign of Richard II, Murray charged, and said that a section of the NRA code referring tor manufacturing is Identical with th'at In vogue then. He re- feVred to the NRA emblem as "flint Miin ViiiOTrnrfl."

S. Engineers' final design studies on the $54,000,000 hydroelectric flood control dam on Red River, four miles northwests of Donlson. Studios on which working draw- Ings and specification will bo based are entering the final stage, army engineers explained and are being pushed with the view of establishing design criteria for submission to the war department by April 1. The Denlson organization, now a distinct office of the U.

Slain Farmer 'The smallest Independent stato in the world, from where the new I'ope will spiritually rule 331,500,000 Catholics. (By The.AF,Feature. Service) The n.ew pope will be not. only plrltual ruler of the world's Iso temporal ruler of the world's 31,500,000 Roman Catholics but mallest Independent stato Vatl- an City. The Vatican, where St. Peter's omb la located, symbolizes In ho minds of all Catholics the au- horlty, dignity and power of the hurch. Since Constantlne I began con- truetlon of a magnificent basl- Ica over the tomb of the first loman Bishop, St. Peter, In the arly fourth century, new bulld- ngs and additions have added to ho size and splendor of the site. Once a hill where Christians were martyred, the Vatican now s a city of medieval splendor and renaissance art. It has Its' own government, its own police and courts, and Its own railroad and radio stations. A treaty negotiated by Pope Pius XI with the Italian , kingdom In 1929 established the Vatican as an Independent state and the 1,000 persons living on -Its 108.7 acres are Vatican citizens living under the Vatican flag—a white and yellow banner charged with crossed keys and triple tiara. The residents live In Belvedere Palace at the rear of the papal quarters. They spend Vatican money—first coined In 1931—and use Vatican postage stamps. Governor Runs City. Although the Pope is temporal ruler of the domain, he appoints a governor charged with the protection of property, the maintenance of public order and hygiene, and ordinary relations with the church. The . Secretariat of State acts as the Vatican's chief political organ. Four branches of the colorful Pontifical Armed Corps carry out the city's police duties. They are the Mobile Guards, chosen from nobility; the Pontifical Swiss Guard, the Palatine Guard of Honor and the Pontifical gendarmerie. The ImpresalvenesB of the huge St. Peter's Square at the main entrance to the city carries on throughout the entire state. No building Is more awe-lnspllng than St Peter's basclllca, built and decorated during the 16th century to replace the original Constantlne basilica. Its huge Colonnades represent Christ opening his arms to receive in a protective embrace his millions of children spread all over the world. Several Palace Additions The 1,000-room papal palace, although the chamber of the Pope aro relatively simple, has been added to and beautified during nearly every Pontificate since the papacy finally was transferred back to Rome from Avignon in 1367. The Slatlne Chapel, whore Cardinals' will elect the Pope, Is one of the most famous buildings In the city, Its beauty enriched by the famous frecoes of Michelangelo. The famous Vatican gardens re a major Item of Interest tc •Isltora. There the late Plus XI iftcn walked. Pope Pius. XT, during his 17•ear pontificate, earned the reputation as the greatest Vatican iullder. During his time the ra- lio station, HJV, which carries iut programs, from the Vatican or rebroadcast, was sot up. An other modern addition was the of Ice for the Osservatore Romano mpal dally, which has a clrcula. Ion of 50,000.

He said a full and complete picture was necessary for truth. "Go behind the mike and see and analyse, he said) and then charged that the President did not write his speeches. Murray charged that the President got two of his speeches mixed In 19S8, delivered the one Intended for the Jackson Day dinner to congress and the one Intended for congress to the Jackson dinner. He said the newspapers "burned him up" for that switch. President Extravagant Assailing the President aa extravagant, he said that the operation of the White House was provided $600,000; traveling expenses were $100,000 per year, and then naval cruises represent $2,600,000 to say nothing -of • the the President's son-in-law was hired to run the publication, no further trouble was had; a son Is being paid $25,000 a year to manage a radio chain, "a thing he doesn't know a • . thing palatial special throughout the trains operated country" as the "that blue Turning his attention to the ' attempt to destroy or change the the supreme court of the United Sfates, he. declared: "It will be a< sad day In America if the su- pr;eme court Is -, destroyed." He declared that the supreme, m"rt saved thp South following the civil war. Answering criticism of the court, he stated that that branch of fhe government was not In- tp"- 1 !^ to "co-operate" with -the '<*'.••!• hrnnfhes. He said the leg- 'T'P'IVO hrnnrh was to make laws, f h< > 1'i(1lp|M was to construe the lawi and that the executive department wax intended to enforce t,Jje lawsr-the trio co-ordinating and not co-operating. warned against the sound- Iris board" where a man with •V "loosing personality could read n<1 drosses over the radio someone olse had written while a person chief executive goes about telling "you how to vote." He charged that the Roosevelt personal expenses amount to more to the government that did the opera- ton of the entire government per year during the time of Washington, Adams and Jeffor- n. Referring to his search throughout all available political histories ever written, the speaker declared that In all history it was never seen or heard head; of governments "cussing others' like ip recent weeks. "It looks like they want war in Washington to save. themselves," he continued. He .pointed out that under emergency measures In time o: war, railroads, telephone ' am telegraph equipment, stores ; and all other properties would be take over by the government'and "you will have a sweet time ever getting them back. We woulc have a Russian government in 24 hours Is what I am afraid > of,' he stated, '•'When • leaders and politician tell what they are going to do they are demagogues or—liars,' he shouted. • President's Family Murray charged Roosevelt's in tentlons were to impoverish the county and enrich his own fam about," he charged;' Son Jimmy wrote record number of bonds, later hod a job as secretary, and now draws a princely salary In Hollywood after Hollywood got n trouble. He said Mrs. Roose- olt made $90,000 writing and ised It to finance communistic Ipaln. ' He said that communistic Sp.atn's suppression of the church was the cause of the revolution and stated no church services were allowed for 2 1-2 years. He said pictures were taken and printed In England showing k the conditions, but they were not used In America. "I'm not for any government that is against religion," ho said, but pointed out he dangers and abuses when ;he church runs the government Murray frequently stated to ook at Roosevelt's tracks to see where they wore leading and not isten to what the leaders were saying. He lambasted Senator Black, now a ! member of the supreme court, for the violating of telegraph files in an investlga tlon while in the senate. He said Black's background was being a police judge in Birmingham, "The new dealers Tiave lied so much -I will not believe any o them," ho shouted. Destroying- Little Farmers He charged that the little farm ers had been destroyed by thr present program because farmer, will not stand for communism There were too many of them, h stated, and they are being re duced. The farmers In : Russia balked at communism and 600,000 of them were slain. The llttl farmers are being sent to th towns for WPA jobs. He declared that the new dealers would give more money to those sections that "kick them in 'the pants" In' an effort to "bu; you to thfir side." He said one of three thing would happen. . - , Brave men will march o: Washington and drive them ou after facing a great army an navy; or the South and Wes will separate from -the Bast, o "all will go down in the nigh like 'Babylon. 1 ' He declared there was - noth lly.

Murray said that the more cholarly the people become, the more bookish, and if they believe md think like the books read hey are Impractical failures be ause they overlook the laws o lature. Can't Correct Nature. "New dealers think they can jorrect nature, but the nearer t he laws of nature we get, the better the times and government," he stated. Ho urged that this government et every nation run Its own business, it cruelties, religion, rulers, and Internal problems.
