Ouvlor Phnne 450 WASHINGTON, April 26 (JP) — Senators who declined to be quoted by name said today an administration spokesman had discussed compromising the Supreme Co.urt dispute by authorizing four new justices, but had turned down suggestions for only two. There were no signs of an agreement or modification, however, on the eve of the Senate judiciary committee's first closed session of the court bill. The measure would permit appointment of six new justices if members over 70 do not retire. A possible Supreme Court decision today on the unemployment insurance provisions of the social security act and on validity of supplementary state laws, observers said, might have some effect before tomorrow's committee session. There also was a possibility the court would announce at noon whether it would pass on old age pension provisions of the act before adjourning for the summer. Opponents have indicated they would fight all modifications to force a test vote on the bill as it stands. The opposition strategy will be to seek first to split the President's proposals into two bills, separating the Supreme Court issue from recommendations to speed up judicial processes. Senator Van Nuys (D., Ind.) said he would ask an early vote. Will BE HF.LD TUESOfl? Funeral services for Oscar E. Baker, 40, will be conducted at 2:30 tomorrow afternon in First Baptist church with the Rev. C. E. Lancaster, pastor, officiating. Burial will be in Fairview cemetery, in charge of G. C. Malone Funeral Home. Local Masons will conduct services at the grave. Mr. Baker died in a-Dallas sanitarium Friday night after an allness of several months. He was a longtime resident of Pampa and at the time of his death was a driller for the Magnolia Petroleum company. Survivors are the widow, two daughters and one sister. All Master Masons are asked to meet at the temple in the White Peer Land building at 1:15 o'clpck Chapter V ] It was almost midnight when Sybil | returned to her own home. She had , left her uncle in a particularly jovial frame of mind find she felt certain that, hn would reient in the matter of Philip. She decided to wait up an hour or so, in case her brother did get home that nictit. It would not do for him to believe that she had let him down, becatisp she meant to j have him do .something for her. As a matter of fact, she rarely failed him. Philip was extravagant, impetuous and utterly irresponsible, yet he had a certain reckless charm which compelled her admiration. It might have been that she understood his faults because the same desires smouldered within her. If she were better able to control them than he was, it was because she viewed the world's tolerance with more calculation. 7'here was Uncle John, for one thing. Despite the trust fund which her father had left them, Uncle John was still an economic necessity, and his principles must be appeased. That task Sybil took unto herself and she handled it well. Jennings, the buller, looked into the living room. "I put your cur in the garage. Miss Sybil," he announced sedately. "Will there be anything else." "No. Jennings, nothing more." She picked up a magazine and settled j herself on the divan. "By tho way, I did my brother call while I was out?" I 'No, Mi;is Sybil. Thei-p were no | calls." : "Thank you. Don't bother with the lights. I'm slaying up a while." j "Very well. Miss Sybil." He with-' drew quietly, leaving an oppressive j stillness about the room. , Sybil turned the pages of the magazine listlessly and listened to the hall clork tick off the seconds. The House seemed chilly. she thought. ' j Her own living room was a fitting' background for Sybil Hendry. It j war; as she was, smart,-sophisticated. I Modern furniture stood out strikingly i against dull, off-white wall?, skill'- ; fully brightened by concealed ceil- i ing lights. The floor was completely ' covered by a warm chartreuse velvet carpeting, with luxurious small Chi- , nese rugs, in the same tones as the \ furniture, scattered in carelessly cor- | reel, fashion. The draperies were in i ^ old-blue velvet, their edges caught i j back in the inme studied careless- : ness to show a lining of chartrcause satin. Mirrors were used artistically—as table tops, as frames for the two I large Chinese prints, and as panels j down the entire length of the wall from ceiling to floor, to catch the reflection of windows opposite. Odd pieces of furniture in old ivory and gold held priceless lamps of Chinese porcelain and expensive smoking accessories. The only striking note of color in the room was a huge of deep red rose?, kept fresh through the thoughtl'ulness of Uncle Jchn. which stood on a table in front of an enormous triple window. Uncle John did not like Sybil's living room. He often intimated jokinp- that its absolute perfection made him feel uncomfortable. One day he told her, the room would learn that he'd been raised in the degradation of a mining camp and it, would freeze him to death for bespoiling it Shortly before one o'clock Sybil heard Philip turn in at the driveway. She went to the window, watched him put the car in the garage, and heard him slam the doors violently. Evidently his day in jail had not left him in a very bright frame of mind. She hurried to the front door to let him in. She wished she had asked Jennings to prepare some sort of a supper. In all probability Philip had not eaten all day. However, she could fix up something for him. "Hello, Philip, 1 she greeted him flatly. He looked up scowling, and did not return her greeting. Sybil closed the door behind him. "I'm terribly sorry—" she began. Philip's scowl deepened. "You should be!" he said scornfully. "That was a fine trick you let the old man pull." 'I didn't know a thing about it until this evening, Philip. Why didn't you call me instead of Uncle John?" "I didn't call anybody. Tho^e silly cops went through my pockets. I suppose, and found his card. Then the opportunity of talking to the great John Hendry was too much for them to pass up. I don't know what he told them, but today they wouldn't let me make another call." Sybil helped him out of his coat. "Did you have anything to eat?" she asked solicitously. "Eat! Don't be silly. Why would I want to eat that tripe they hand out?" "Come on, then. I'll find you something." She led the way toward the kitchen. "I need a drink first," he grumbled. "All right." She opened cupboard doors, brought out a few dishes. "Where does Jennings keep the Scotch?" she asked. "First shelf, at the right," Philip offered. Sybil took it clown, poured out a generous portion, then went to the refrigerator for ice cubes. "Here's almost a whole chicken," she observed, "and a bottle of milk. Want me to make coffee, Philip?" "No, I'll take the milk. Got any tomato juice?" "Half a jar of it, all nicely chilled." Gradually, as the drink took effect, his spirits rose. He attacked the chicken eagerly, forgetting for the while that he bore a grievance. Soon he was telling Sybil about his day in jail — about the flat-footed guard who walked up and down the corridor lecturing them—about the three others who shared his cell — the roughneck, the penitent panhandler, and the dignified gentleman from Boston. ' 'Honest, Syb," he said affably, waving a cold chicken drumstick, "you'd have died laughing at that old, duck. Never touched a drop of liquor in his life, so he said. Just had an attack of vertigo last night. Jfe'4 met ^ Jew business aequs juices to Qj9 village mi Wwy eff him some nice lime drinks. Delightful drinks, he thought. The riefct tiling he found himself out in the street beating up a cop with his cane. 'I was Just walking down the street'." Philip mimicked with a grin, ' "when I felt an attack coming on. And this officer insisted that I was Intoxicated. He insulted me. I tell you. when I pet back to Boston—' Oh. when he gets back to Boston, he'll have the governor down to demand an apology." Philip laughed at the memory. "The devil of it was " he continued, "I think the old boy was sincere. Those old friends of his must have had a rare time spiking his lime drinks." Half an hour later, Sybil said cautiously: "Uncle John wns upsrt about it, Philip." Philip's good humor faded. "Don't tnlk Uncle John to me tonight," he snapped. "I'm getting fed up with his interference. I don't need him telling me how to live . . . ." Sybil sighed. "That's just the trouble. Philip. We do need him, very badly. "I've a stack of bills now that are two months overdue. And I hate to remind you- -" "Don't bother! I remember, well enough. Sam Bowser has my I. O. U. for two thousand he's getting nasty about it. Well, let me handle Sam Bowser . . . ." Sybil shrugged, eloquently. Philip couldn't handle Sam Bowser, and she knew it ns well a.5 he did. And if Sam Bowser went, to Uncle John, it would be difficult. Rubbed thn right way, Uncle John signed checks with an ample hand but. get his back up and he was as hard as the Rock of Gibraltar. "Philip," Sybil pursued tactfully, "I'll make a bargain with you." He looked at her suspiciously. "What is it?" "I'll settle with Sam Bowser. I'll give him something on account and security for the rest. And if you'll do something for me, I'll give you $50 a week extra and expenses. It will take you out of town, so you won't have to face Uncle John. I'll toll him you've gotten a job, and by the time you get back, he'll have forgotten all about this." "What do you want me to do? And where do I go?" 'Chicago." "What for?" He offered her a sig- aret. took one himself. "To do a little detective work." "Detective work? On what?" He held the match for her.
