By Senator A. M. Aikin, Jr., of Paris, it was directed at cotton gin operators. Senate Accepts Amendment As introduced the bill would have extended the unemployment tax to employers of six or more persons but the senate accepted an amendment leaving It at eight, the present requirement. Senate action included adoption of house concurrent resolutions asking Texans In congress to oppose a resolution by which the federal government would assert title to submerged lands along the Texas coast which are now vested In the free public school fund and another urging President Roosevelt to appoint to the supremo court of the United States Joseph C. Hutcheson of Houston, a judge of the federal circuit court of appeals, This was the last day for introduction of bills In the house without four-fifths consent and many new proposals hit the hopper, One by Rep. H. T. Brown of Jacksonville would levy, additional taxes of 2*6 cents per barrel on oil, 50 cents per thousand on cigarettes, 2 per cent of value on gas, and 47 cents per long ton on sulphur. Another, by Rep. John J. Bell of Cuero, would change the oil confiscation law In an effort to Increase prices received by the state when oil Is sold. Under the bill, tho state could refuse to sell the oil If tho price was unsatisfactory It then could exchange the oil for gasoline needed by the state. Constitutional Amendment A proposed constitutional amendment introduced in the house called for distribution of free text books in parochial and private schools. Rep. Henry G. Lehman of Giddlngs and others Introduced a bill abolishing 55 special govern mental funds and making the comp trailer's department a central tax collecting agency. Still other new bills would reduce the automobile registration fee to a flat $3, require registration of firearms and create the lower Concho river water and soil conservation authority. There were no outward developments in the bitter fight concerning increasing the motor truck load limit. Rep. JOB Monkhouao of Uvalde, 'chairman, said the house highways and motors traffic committee, deadlocked on tho issue Tuesday night, probably would not meet again utll next week.

If any funds remain after payment of the old age and teacher's retirement debts, Stuart suggested they go to reducing the ad valorem taxes for tho avall- ible school fund. He asserted tha would eliminate tho clamor abou tho school fund being responsible for increasing tho ad valorem tax The committee previously had heard Rep. W. J. Galbreath, the Wharton blacksmith who recent ly attacked Qov. O'Danlel's trans actions tax on tho floor, com ment: "A sales tax Is far less reprehensible than a damnable transaction tax." • Committee members roared with laughter when he added; "The governor's message was the most Inconsistent message ever delivered to a legislature In the history of the United States." Galbreath, who broached his own plan of careful rendition of prop- perty, with a stiff penalty for faulty reports, said: "We haven't been able to work calmly and quietly on our legislative problems down here because of the propaganda that has been spread on the radio and through other sources urging the people to write their representatives and urge passage of this racket tax." A motion to hear a bill proposing taxation of natural resources for raising revenue for the aged was passed and hearing date set for Tuesday.

Under Its terms, the President would be required to 'submit to congress a plan or a number of Jlana for rearranging, consoll- lating or abolishing adminlstra- .ive agencies 'of the government. These presidential plans would jecome effective In 60 days unless congress, in the meantime, passed a resolution turning them down. In effect, therefore, congress would have a veto power over reorganization orders by means of a majority vote in both the senate and house. In addition to granting reorganization authority to the President, the legislation also would authorize the appointment of six new administrative assistants to the chief executive, Omitted were any provisions to alter the, aeet-ups of th civil service commission or comptroller general's office, two points which aroused sharp debate last session. • WASHINGTON, Feb. 23,—(fl>The senate passed today a house- approved bill to continue from next June 80 to June 30,' 1941, operations of the' export-Import bank and the Commodity Credit Corporation. variance with a ruling on the subject last year by the then Attorney General William McCraw.

RENTALS and LOAMS 129 Wont Oollln 81 Phone 1783 By EDDY GILMORE WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.—W— Mid-term graduates of George Washington University went out are about to enter Into that great stage of life " Here's what happened: Miss Swarthout sang "Spendthrift" by Ernest Charles. About the time when the orator usunly tells the young graduates to save their money and apply themselves, Miss Swarthout burst into "My Pagan Love." Few orators ever got the applause she did. Then came a couple more numbers—"Clouds" and "The Janitor's Boy." Between songs the University presented a citation to Nelson T. Johnson, American ambassador to China, and an honorary Doctor of Laws degree to Oswaldo Aranha, Brazilian minister of foreign relations. and Announcement We" wish to announce that 0. A. (Ernest) McBrlde Is now connected with us. He Invites all his friends and patrons to come by. HEROD RADIATOR AND Still not near actual consideration of any proposal, the joint committee pledged to the task of ferreting out some plan for paying pensions recessed until Tuesday, The committee on revenue and taxation, however, will continue- to- hear suggestions. R. A. Stuart, representing the Texas State Teachers' Association warned the committee members yesterday that no single proposal could muster the 100 votes necessary for passage and added: "It's time all hands should get together to compromise thU 'situation, The' folks back home sent you down here to do something about the state's four-way social security debt and if you go home without some action, I don't believe they'll send some of you back." Stuart, who - prefaced bis remarks by saying he could not speak for all the teachers, proposed a 50-50 tax between natural resources and wholesale and "use," or sales tax. Estimated revenues from'these sources would be some $35,000,000, he said. Wholesalers would be taxed on the first sale of Texas products while a light, "use" tax, such as is now on cigarettes, would be levied on foreign goods coming into the state. Stuart had no definite tax to be levied on natural resources, but used one per cent as a basis to estimate that a 50 per cent Increase could be made on oil and by-products. He said some $400,000 additional could be obtained from sulphur taxes. Revenue from taxation would be applied to the old age pension and teacher's retirement fund. "Teachers have been, and still are, against a retail sales tax," Stuart said. "They must spend nearly every cent they earn to further thalr education and take care of living expenses sff they can be presentable in their schoolrooms, But if. it does take a J'sales tax "to, raise'' these '— '- motor traffic committee to report tho bill favorably to the floor. One objection—that steer horns would necessitate a reduction In size of the numerals, was raised. DEFENSE (Continued From Page One) "What do you suppose we would think," he asked, "If great Britain undertook to fortify Bermuda' today? Would we consider it an overt act or a hostile act?" Meanwhile, Rep, Fish (R-NY) criticized Ambassador William C. Bullltt for a Paris speech In which he said tho United States had abandoned its geographical isolation. Saying that statement was false, Fish declared In a statement: "What right has Ambassador Bullitt to .misrepresent and repudiate the traditional American foreign policies .accepted by all our presdents since the time of Washinglon? x x x Certainly he Is not speaking for the American people." While the house approached a vote on the controversial Guam naval project, two developments raised the possibility today that congress might expand the army air corps beyond the 5,500 planes authorized by the house. 1. The senate received from Its military committee a unanimous recommendation that the army plane limit be raised to $6,000. 2. Chairman Sheppard (D-Tex) of the committee made public a Feb. 8 letter from Secretary Woodrlng suggesting that no maximum be set on the number of aircraft the army could acquire. sweet notes of Gladys Swarthout ringing In their ears Instead of the customary words of wisdom from a commencement orator. President Cloyd Heck Marvin explained the University presented a singer rather than a speaker at 'the exercises last night because of the important role music plays In the national life. It was an odd ceremony. At that point In the program where ordinarily a barrel-chest- ed orator struts to the front of the stage, Miss Swarthout, arrayed In gay colors, swept out of the wings. "Ah," gasped the graduates. Instead of the customary: "Young men and. women who Farm Property . < SO FOB SALE—117 aero farm adiolntnr city of Kerens, good land, (rood house and barns all land In cultivation. Will noil cheap.

Woodrlng urged all limits be removed so if masa production of planes made possible acquisition of a greater number without additional cost, the army could take advantage of the opportunity. Senator Sheppard said the war department headd appeared pleased by the senate committee's recommendation for an Increase In the house figure. Chairman May (D-Ky) of the househouap military committee predicted his group would approve the Increase. .The senate committee, In favoring the air corps development, approved yesterday tho army expansion measure constituting the bulk of. the administration defense program.

Canal' defenses and $34,500,000 to after, the bouse eliminated it. train private Industry in munitions production, This was $2,000,000 more than the sum In the bill as approved by the house. Fiery debate over the $5,000,000 Guam project diverted attention of the house from the rest of the naval air program. With scarcely any discussion, It tentatively approved 11 other projects In the bill yesterday. They Included new air bases In Alaska, the mid-Pacific and Puerto Rico as well as expansions at existing domestic stations. Denounced By Critics. Critics denounced the Guam development, however, as the first step toward complete fortification of the Island and a measure likely to enhance the danger of war. : It was just as vigorously supported by members who said It would "save American lives" If war should come In the Pacific. Even before the house disposed of the Guam project, new controversial legislation was being proposed, Representatives Cochran (D-Mo) and Warren (D-NC) completed revision of the government reorganization bill which caused a turbulent battle last year before it was finally shelved.
