They will submit a plan which, they said, would exclude Texas chains but tax foreign cliains. Gas Hearing Continues Joe Weingarton of Houston and A. L. Becker of San Antonio, representing local grocery chains, protested the tax. Wcingartcn said the NBA had eliminated most of the unfair competition in the grocery business and. that if the independent would "get down to work nnd tend to business he has a hotter opportunity now than ever before." Becker said the tax would place a premium on inefficiency ' and that -"if the independents would clean their stores and go after thie business they would gel their shai-e of it." The house oil. gas and mining committee continued hearing.-; on bills to curb gas wastage in the Panhandle.'' Stanley Marsh of Amarillo, represenling the gas strippers, advocated divorcement of pipe lines from producing and distributing companies and rateable taking 'as the only practical solution. Marsh attributed the Panhandle i condition to the major pipe line 41 companies. "They had tlf'3 power to stop wastage by granting a rateable taking of production," he said. The state pardon board would be moved to Huntsvillc, site of the central prison under a bill recommended by the house penitentiary committee.

Tha house criminal 'jurisprudence committee rejected a bill to provide a penitentiary instead of jail sentence for criminal libel, opponents arguing present penalties were adequate if enforced The bill, by Representative Pat Dwyer of San Antonio, was directed at "irresponsible scandal sheets." A bill to prohibit utilities from selling appliances was reported fav- or^bly by the house municipal and private corporations committee. MARKET NEW YORK, Feb. 14.

The letter, written sometime in the summer previous to Gorrell's death in Tulsa Thanksgiving night, told, in detail of n "binge." which Kennamcr' wrote had cured him of drinking. In the letter he attempted to re- !:lcre Snedden to the good graces of the girl by telling her that the reason Snedden had written to her asking her to write to him (Ken- numeri was because of their friendship. He aski'd her to deal kindly with Snedden. whom Kennamcr paid had been taking care of him during the time he was drunk and later ill.

"If your honor please, the state moves for the sentence of the dc- t'.-ndant at I his lime." Judge Is Kind Justice Trenchard asked for the indictment and it was handed to him. "The statute requires apparently (hat the court shall give a time wiihin \vhhh th-> sentence is to be executed and within a certain week, which must begin not less than four weeks and n"t more than eiRlu weeks after the i:-sue of the (death) warrant," lie observed. "The court will therefore now proceed to impede the sentence. "The defendant may stand." Again Hauptmann got to his feet and faced the bench. Th? hand- ruffs on his wrists—first time since the trial started January 2—glinted in the aitificial light. "Bruno Rirhard Hauptmann: You have been convicted of murder in the first degree." His voice was kindly, fatherly. "Ths sentence of the court is lhat you. the .said Kruno Richard Hauptmann, suffer death at the time and place and in the manner provided hy law. And the court will hand to the .sheriff a warrant appointing the week beginning Monday, the 18th day of March, 1935, as the week within such sentence must be executed in the manner provided by law. '"You are now remanded to the custody ot the sheriff." Stutc Expected To Pay Egbert Rosesrans pointed out that, since it was a matter of .life cr death to the 36-year-old defendant the state \vas expected to pay the'cost of the appeal. Had Hauptmann received a prison term, the state would be under no obligation to aid him. Despite the late hour, the defense battery met after the verdict in Fisher's office to plan their next move. As a last resort Hauptmann's attorneys could apply to the court of pardons in October for a commutation of sentence. Any appeal to the federal courts would delay his march to the electric chair still longer. Jurors refused to talk, but a well- founded report was that they had required five ballots to agree on a verdict without the recommendation for mercy. They weVe out 11 hours and 6 minutes. By the time they returned to the courtroom, it was anything but a spectacular setting for the conclusion of the sensational case. Tobacco smcke hung heavily in the air; hall-emptied containers of coffee perched on uncertain bases; lawyers and newspapermen who hnd waited since before noon stretched restlessly. There was talk lhat the jury would be locked up for the night. Each hour that passed decreased the. expectation of a deajh sentence. / These Will Bring The Crowds to Permey's —FRIDAY AND SATURDAY- Values Galore! Really Unbelievable Values!
