For the first time in Legion history it was apparent that the selection would not be made on the first ballot. Candidates for the honor, each claiming a considerable backing and none willing to predict victory for himself, included: Harty W. Colmery of Kansas, J. Bay Murphy of Iowa, Karl V. Cliff Of Minnesota, Vilas H. Whaley of Wisconsin, and Quimby Melton of Georgia. ^_ County Parole Will Be Selected Soon AUSTIN, Sept. 26.—Gov.

He was 77. (Continued From Page 1) killed each year by tmtos. Very logically considered as a major recreational anH useful mechanism its ability prematurely to mnim and 1:111 makes little impression upor most of us. In fact, the daily list of casualties in the papers indicated indifference to the situation. Nevertheless, as a menace to life and limb the automobile unfortunately represents a real hazard. In addition to its pleasure and utility factors, the motor-car has its devastating side also. Decidedly this fact should not be overlooked. And in this connection education alone can be relied upon to brii>; results. There is no serum, no drug, no quarantine procedure, nor any effective mass control against' the automobile's damaging power. Automobile accidents caused more deaths in Texas last year than the combined deaths from typhoid fever, smallpox, measles, diphtheria:, scarlet fever, whooping cough, and infantile paralysis. Whether human nature can be sufficiently bridled by public opinion as to result in more careful driving and more cautious walking remains to be proved. But the fact is that a major health and life problem is involved in the present circumstance. Safe water, clean milk, disease control, slum clearance, sanatoria, and indeed modern medicine and surgery are all of small avail to the speed-maniac who kills himself and others. Medical science also is equally powerless to save pedestrians who are knocked down by the careless driver, or who carelessly connect with careful drivers. Citizens generally could well seriously consider- this ever increasing challenge to life and health. Upon them rests much of the obligation definitely to reduce the ever increasing casualties, ARTICLE 15 'Continued Prom »age 1) or XV, it shall ipso facto be seemed to have committed an act of war against all other members of the league, which hereby undertake immediately to subject it to the severance . of all trade or finanpial relations, the prohibition of all intercourse between their nationals one! the nationals of the covenant- breaking state, and the prevention of all financial, commercial or personal intercourse between the nationals of the covenant-breaking state and the nationals of any other state, whether a member of the league or not."

(/PI— The republican party machine was geared today for an early start ort the campaign to defeat President ROosevelt iiext year, but there Was no sign of an agreement on the Candidate to run against him. Plans for nn early, hard hitting campaign were laid yesterday by the national executive committee in Its first meeting since before the democratic landslide last year. Members of the group were homeward bound today, cheered by reports of reviving republican sentiment. Officially the. commutes was not concerned with candidacies. Unofficially, they were uppermost In everyone's mind. The big question marks In the speculation were Herbert Hoover and William B. Borah. Were they candidates? What were their plans? Close friends of former President Hoover and some of the other men prominently mentioned in connection with the nomination were present in the hotel Where the committee met. Mr. Hcover's friends refuse'd to discuss his Plans for publication. Chairman Fletcher denied the ccmmittee had considered candidacies. (In New York, however, the New York Times said 1 Mr. Hoover's friends had "definitely informed members of the executive committee of the republican national committee that he Was not a candidate for the nomination for president next year." His sole interest in the party, as its titular leader, they declared, was to see the nomination of a "standard-bearer uncompromisingly opposed to new deal policies and the adoption of an 'anti-socialistic platform'." (When these reports were called to Mr. Hoover's attention at his California home by a close friend, he was quoted as saying he had no comment to make.) There was plenty of behind-the- scenes talk of Col. Prank Knox, and other possibilities for the nomination, but the very number of names entering into the speculation belied any concentrated movement. Fletcher told newspapermen that the committee had concerned itself with finances, routine matters of procedure, and canvassing reports of sentiment in various areas. These ' reports, he said, left "no doubt at all that the tide has turned definitely, and we are going to keep it turning." He spoke confidently of raising funds to conduct the election drive 1 'and announced he would soon appoint a finance committee to handle this vital job (Continued rrom page 1) of the license bid, Mid the wet bloc had "ftd'th^fht of bringing out the bill Mho-tit mdteriftl and sharji amehcHments to duly restrict ftnd eliminate obnoxious provisions." Itopins contended the Small bill was unworkaoitj, "even from the standpoint of those who espouse it," arid would prohibit sale of beer for consumption on the premises. He predicted its passage Would "preclude an opportunity to work out a reasonable bill." Small warned "there can be no common meeting ground" if the motion to recommit was designed to obtain a definition permitting sale by, the drink. He charged the license bill "does nothing more than open up a type of llqUbr Vending that was outlawed years ago." "This bill would thwart the will of the people in amending the constitution," charged Senator T. J Holbrook of Qalveston, "and it Would produce a condition by which they could hot have liquor," putting liquor traffic "right back into the hnritls of bootleggers." He contended the people interpreted the ban against an "open saloon" as prohibiting "the saloon as they knew it before prohibition." Mr. and Mrs. Bob Watson were Borger visitors yesterday. OF TEAMS MOSTLY SETTLED BY NOW By HUGH S. FULLERTON Jr. Associated Pl-cs 1 ; Sports Writer While the Ctibs and Cardinals are efignged in their bitter struggle for the National league pennant, most of the other teams in both circuits Have s»ttled their differences tibout' the standing and are now engaged Iri the search for players to help improve their positions next year. Hi the National league where the Cub 1 ! won their 10th, straight by defeating the Cards 1 'to 0 yesterday, the only real doubt Is whether the Dodgers or Reds will finish in fiflH plabe, although the Giants «tfll b6ve as much chance of tyihg St. LoUis fo'r second place as the Caids have of pulling up even with Chicago. The first five' places in the American lengue have beeri definitely settled and the one question is V/hether the Browns can overtake Washington's sixth-plnce Senators. Ero:klyn moved into fifth plaea yesterday by taking a double-header from the Giants, while the Cincinnati Reds were Idle. The Dodgers jumped on rookie Hari-y Gumbsrt fcr eight runs in the second inning of the opener as they combined five hits with two errors, walks and other gifts; then breesed through to win 10 to 4 behind Wat- ?bh Clark. They followed that up with a 1 to 0 victory when Van Mungo pitched 4-hit ball to beat Fred Fritzsimmons. As a result, or their two defeats, the Giants can do no better than tie for second if thfiy win their remaining five games from the Brave:; ?ind the Card; Icse four rnox' to Chicago. The Boston Red Sex clinched folirth place in thn American league •vhen they trounced the cellar- dwelling Athletics 7 to 2 on the Fer- 1-311 brother;;' fine efforts whlln the Chicago White Sox tosk their third straight Setback from the ferowns 4 to 3. West Perrell pitched five-hit ball for Boston to earn his 36th victory of the year. The Browns continued their drive to overhaul Washington by making fiy.i hits outdo ten by means of brilliant defense work. Mclvin Mazzera, latest addition to the Browns' newcomers, baited a borne run and later singled to start the tying rp.liy. Detroit's champian Tigers, loafing nlong totvard ths world Defies, met some rnthcr rude treatment from the thil-cl-'plE.ce Cleveland Indians and Went down 3 to 2. Eldon Auker was forced eut of irinmg wttett Joe struck his wrist.. The otfief, jelulte of fc«rth remained" idle. • , WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.
