THE COBSICANA SEMI-WEfiKLY LIGHT, FRIDAY, MABCH 8, 1989. W8VEN HIGH COURT RULES JUDGE IS WITHOUT POWER1N MATTER POWERS OF SOME OFFICERS IN HALTING TRUCKS, HOWEVER, HELD LIMITED • AUSTIN, March 1.—(*) ' .—The Supreme Court today invalidated the major part of injunctions which State Police had interpret» ed as preventing them from enforcing the load limit law against trucks frtm the Rio Grande valley. The opinion pointed out that license and weight Inspectors of tho state public safety department are supposed to enforce tho 7,000 pound limit law and stated that a Judge has no power "to supervise an officer In the discharge of his official duties." Tho powers of other officers relating to halting of trucks are llm- ' Ited, the supreme tribunal said, and the court has the right to see that such limitations are observed. Enforcement of the law against large shipments of Rio Grande Valley grapefruit had been at a standstill since Issuance more than two weeks ago of tho Injunctions, ono of which was by District Judge Brycc Ferguson of Edinbure and the other by Judge Fountain Klrby of Groesbeck. The Rio Grande Valley Grapefruit ; shipping season is at Its peak in 1 February and March. Growers insisted they could not make s profit under rail rates or the 7,000 pound load limit. Moves to Increase the load llmll are pending in the legislature but so far have made little headway. Statute Constitutional. The opinion, written by Associate Justice J. B. Hiekman, asserted the statutes limiting the size of vo- itfcles and their loads were constl- jtutlonal and were no longer open to , .''question on that point. It observed that under an amend. ment to the original injunction is,< sued by Judge Ferguson license anc * weight inspectors were directed t< "speed up" the discharge of offlcia duties, and not to detain any truck unless they had reason to believe its driver was violating the law. That judges may not suspend "a valid statute," nor supervise the method of enforcement by agents of the executive branch of govern ment, was a basic principle, the opinion continued. "Orderly enforcement of the law requires," It said, "that an officer not have to labor under threat o injunction, and fine and imprison ment for contempt of court." Do Not Share Belief. Justice Hiekman asserted tha Judge Ferguson apparently was sincere In the belief he had not ex ceeded the bounds of his authority but "we do not share his belief. "In our opinion," the opinlot stated, "he clearly exceeded his au thorlty, and his order, In so far as it applied to the license and weigh Inspectors, was and Is void." The court of criminal appeals hai held that authority to weigh ve i .hides is granted "exclusively" to / license and weight inspectors and T the supreme court follows that de clalon, Justice Hiekman went on He said other officers must have warrants, but added Judge Fergu son's injunction, in this respect . i was "too sweeping." Concerning Judge Klrby's injunction, the opinion said: "Obviously, its effect Is to clamp down on peace officers of the stat such restrictions they cannot en force the statutes." Homer Garrison, director of th' public safety department declinei comment until he had studied thi supreme court opjnlon. Friend Held As > Kidnaper of Boy ' InNewYorkCity ^ NEW YORK, March 1.—,...

Sell It Quick Through Want Ads RIVAL LABOR LEADERS READY TO OPEN JOINT CONFERENCE IN SEARCH PERMANENT PEACE WASHINGTON, March 1.— UP) —Secretary Perkins said today he would call a meeting of the ^FL-CIO peace negotiating committee "In less than a week." Miss Perkins said there still were some details of the confer- nce to bo arranged, and that he would discuss these with "resident Roosevelt on his return iaturday, Upwards of 7,000,000 workers are Involved In tho dispute be- ween the American Feedratlon f Labor and the Congress of Industrial organizations. The conferences, in response to presidential request to close the reach between organized workers, vill be the first between the two roups since October, 1937. CIO President John L. Lewis cted yesterday to make possible enewed negotiations by appoint- np three CIO negotiators to meet similar committee named Saturday by AFL President William Green. *' WHILE YOU WAIT / I Hero's one Auto.

Lewis picked as the CIO negotiators, himself and his two vice-presidents, Sidney Hlllman and Philip Murray. Many labor men and politicians expressed surprise that Lewis designated himself as a negotiator, but associates explained that he decided to participate actively be- cnuo the AFL had charged him with wrecking the last peace conference from behind-the-scenes. Green said ho had no knowledge of plans for the conferences, and expected only that the two sldei would meet to try "to find a way to close the breach." Tho 1937 negotiations lasted two months and ended in failure because the two sides were unable to apree on formula for taking the CIO organization into the AFL. The CIO leadership is reported to favor blending the two labor factions Into a completely new organization. The federation, however, already has served notice it would not negotiate fundamental changes. AVERAGE PERSON HAS NO IDEA OF WORKHEARTDOES CEASELESS ACTIVITY BOUND TO RESULT IN SOME WEAR AND TEAR SEVERAL SENATORS ARE MAKING EFFORT TO AVERT CONTROVERSY OVER ROOSEVELT THIRD TERM WASHINGTON, March 1.—(/P)— Several middle-of-the-road sena- :ors were reported authoritatively :oday to be trying to avoid a con- .roversy over a third term for President Roosevelt. They were said to have urged Senator Holt (D-WV) to abandon its proposed resolution to put tho lenate on record against a third :erm. Holt, however, declared he would introduce It later In the session. Well-informed persons said tho jroup opposing a showdown was leaded by Senator Wheeler (D- Mont, a leader in the successful Battle against the Roosevelt court Dill two years ago. Wheeler and some other democrats who have opposed various administration measures were described as believing senate consideration of an anti-third term resolution merely would Increase party bitterness and dampen democratic prospects for 1940. Friends said Vice President Garner shared this view. One senator told reporters he had Information that Mr. Roosevelt was little concerned by the Holt proposal, and that he would not urge his capltol lieutenants to oppose it. , % Senator Minton (D-Ind) and administration supporter, said an anti-third term resolution undoubtedly could be defeated, but that It would be useless to consider one. Minton said he was confident the President does not want a third term. Absence of a direct statement by the President on the third term question is described by democratic politicians as one of the three factors slowing up party harmony efforts. Tho others, they said, are puzzlement over the possibility Mr. Roosevelt is grooming Secretary Hopkins to succeed him, and a strong difference of opinion in democratic ranks over administration spending policies. INCREASING STOCKS CRUDE OIL AND GASOLINE ARE BEGINNING TO WORRY NATION'S OIL MEN By ALFRED WALL TULSA, Okla., March 1.— (If) — Wherever oil men gather these days there Is worry that mounts In direct proportion to continuing Increases in the nation's stocks of crude petroleum and gasoline. Advance estimates are in agreement that the summer of 1939, what with two world's fairs to inspire long treks by millions of motorists and with general business showing a revival, should bring an unprecedented peak in consumption. But what profit will there be In that immense gallonage, reflnera were asking themselves, if an uneconomic national gasoline Inventory keeps prices down to a point where a refinery barely can break even? And, chimed In the crude men, how can we have a' profitable price if gasoline stays at Its present level, and how can wo cut back the flow piling up crude stocks above ground? Today the best estimates were that gasoline inventories totaled 83,075,000 barrels Feb. 11 which was more than 1,000,000 barrels higher than the level set by oil economists as a correct status for March 31. Crude stocks as of February 18 wero up again, totaling 271,252,000 barrels, considerably lower than a year ago, but the fact remained that production was increasing steadily, week after week. The bugaboo of federal control was right up in the fore again. Charles F. Rooser. Fort Worth, president of the Independent Petroleum association of America, touched It off with tho declaration that unless tho industry does something about Its problems In a year congress would pass laws to put the business under federal jurisdiction. There were scattered comment here that perhaps that might not be a bad Idea, things being as they are. Most oil men have been opposed bitterly to the idea. Marketers reported gasoline prices were holding steady with movement fairly good. Bad weather caused field work to drop off. ANOTHER MAN HELD CONNECTION MURDER RUSSIAN DANCER LOS ANGELES. March 1.—W) —Clyde Hakcswood, 25, of Sal Lake City, Utah, was picked up by Santa Monica police early today to be questioned about thi murder of Dancer Anya Sosyeva.

PURIM, FEAST OF LOTS, BE OBSERVED ON MARCH FIFTH The story of Esther will bring now hope to Jews throughout the world on Purlm, the Feast of Lots, which this year falls on March S. The legend of .the Persian girl who at tho risk of her life approached a King to acquaint him with tha plight of her people, has B, message for this day of renewed persecution of the Jews. According to the story, which is read from a scroll in the synagogue on Purlm, a Persian despot Ahasucrus, was under the Influence of a courtier, named Human. Because Haman had a difference with an Individual Jew, he sought to persuade his master to destroy all the Jewish people. Secretly Haman was plotting to seize the throne for himself. Mordocal, a pious Jew, tried to toll the King of Haman's plots. The King's ear was not open to Mordecal. Esther, the daughter of Mordecal's uncle, was selected for the king's harem. She resolved to carry tho message of the plot against the king and her people to the ruler. When the plot was revealed, Haman received the punishment that he had planned for the Jews. Mordecal was given a place of honor in the court. This deliverance from the force* of intrigue and Injustice is tha keynote of the Purlm festival. Throughout the ages it baa brought p, message of courage to upholders of Jewish tradition. In addition the holiday coming In the month of Adar at the close of the winter season is a harbinger of spring. It is celebrated by carnivals, feasts, games and plays. — White Youth Was Arrested on Theft Charge Wednesday A white youth was arrested Wednesday by city officers at a local school in connection with the theft of a clock and a fountain pen.
