PRESIDENT WILL SEEK YEAR EXTENSION OF NRA WASHINGTON, Feb. 16 fAP>— An assertion that "ample evidence" already is available that recovery administration codes have been "promoting monopoly" was thrust by Senator Borah (R., Ida.), today into the widening debate over NRA continuance. Even as he spoke President Roosevelt worked on a special message' to be transmitted Monday, recommending one-year extension of the recovery act with authority to extend it another year if necessary. Borah, one of the original critics of NRA on the ground it tended to entrench monopoly through suspension of the anti-trust laws, made his statement in an interview after a senate judiciary subcommittee, of which he is a member, opened and quickly closed the doors of an unofficial inquiry into charges that codes have oppressed independent business. "Of course I am glad the investigation is going forward," Borah said. "We cannot have too many facts, but there is already ample evidence at hand that monoply under NRA is draining the pockets of the average' man in the United States through price-fixing. "If the farmer gets a raise, he also get an increase in prices for the 1 things he has to buy. If labor gets a raise, it more than pays it out on account of the increase in price for the things it has to buy. "The anti-trust laws ought never to have been suspended and in the Interest of humanity they ought to hs restored and cnforcd." Prsident Roosevelt devoted most of the day to preparing his NRA message. The executive, in addition to the 1 extension, definitely has decided to sock permanency for some fundamental provisions of the act, including those abolishing child labor, fixing minimum wages and maximum hours, and guaranteeing the right of labor to bargain collectively. It was thought by administration leaders the president would not propose changing 1 the controversial section 7-a, the collective bargaining clause. However, some strong labor democrats in the senate would like to see this provision clarified and strengthened. In "The Band Plays on" \ Betty Furness and Robert Young are featured in the MOM production current at the Rex theater. The film is "The Band Plays On," a college picture. Norman, Pampa; W. A.

BY AOBBIN COONS. HOLLYWOOD— Keeping the record straight in Hollywood is made no simpler by the similarity of names. You can remember that Betty Compton is not a Hollywood actress but the wife of former Mayor James J. Walker, that Betty Compson is the veteran movie actress, that Juliette Compton is the slithery screen vamp and that Joyce Compton is a red-headed movie ingenue, but that's just it — you must remember/' A lot fans, reacting Now on Dis; . names in news dispatches^litfve to think •thrice.')

BETTY FURNESS-TED HEALY news about Betty Compton as it was. Sylvia Sidney and Sidney Fox cause no confusion to zealous movie fans, but there are occasional moviegoers who to this day can't distinguish between them in conversation. And there are the Fords- Wallace, the talkie actor, Francis, the co-star of Grace Cunard in old serial days, John, the director, and Eugene, also a director, but ho spells it Fordo. Charles Laughton and Frank Lawton are both Englishmen and both actors, although as different in personality as Mae West and Shirley Temple. But their surnames are pronounced as Frank's is spelled, and if you don't know your movies you can find yourself asking- questions about Chubby Laughton's work in "David Copperfield" or Slim Lawton's performance in "Sign of the Cross." Some confusion is bound to result, too, from "Ruggles Red Gap," in which Laughton plays the title role and Charles Ruggles is a leading character. And consider those Lees! Billy, Davey, Dixie, Dorothy, Gwen, Laura, Lila, Rowland V. and Sammy. Billy's a child actor, Davey was Al Jolson's "Sonny Boy," Dorothy attained Wheeler and Woolsey fame, Gwen used to decorate M. G. M. features, Laura came from musical comedy to play opposite Joe E. Brown, Lila is the child-star who played leading ladies and kept on playing them, Dixie is the blonde Mrs. Bing Crosby, active again in films, Rowland V. is the director, Sammy the dance director. But don't forget Jocelyn Lee, actress and recent bride. The Moores are equally numerous, the better known being Colleen, Grace, Victor, Matt, Torn and Owen, and young Dickie. But unscrambling the Browns is the biggest assignment for the casual movie-goer, who can probably identify Johnny Mack, Joe E., Clarence and Tom, but there are besides Charles D., Harry Joe (Sally Eiler's producer- husband), Hiram S., Joe, Mary Ellen, Melville, Russ, and Irene Browne and. Lucille Browne. REGIONAL LIBRARY FOR PLAINS SOUGHT BY TEACHERS COLLEGE CANYON, Feb. 16.—Randall county and the West Texas State Teachers college arc seeking a great regional library which will serve all the Panhandle of Texas. According to President J. A. Hill, n library project has been included in those submitted by the Randall county planning board and it is expected to enlist the aid of every county in northwest Texas in get- ling the library. The American Library association and the Texas library planning board have both recommended that rirrlolial libraries be placed on the campuses of the state-supported colleges. Such libraries will be able to serve all the counties of a large territory with only a fraction of the expenses necessary for the individual county to maintain adequate book service. The regional library would send books at regular intervals to each county having its own library or cooperating with the regional one. Tlie library planned for Canyon will not only furnish a much needed book service, but will also provide an addition to the already overcrowded Panhandle Plains .Historical Society Museum. / / .j M.
