mm, A COtoSISTENt SENATOR When the Westerfield resolution requiring registration of lobbyists was under discussion in the senate at Austin, Senator Small indulged in some satirical comment upon it. If it is necessary to protect legislators ftoin lobbyists, sa'id the Panhandle senator, establish quarantine stations all around Austin, censor all the senators' mail, and require all visitors to be finger- fainted; and so on, at length, in the same mirth-provok- 'Sfehatbr Small is consistent in his unwillingness to jjttdScap the Ibbbyists. Six years ago when the Mc- SjYlane resolution requiring legislators to disclose their ,jJMions with special interests was before the senate, OTfiator Small was among those who helped defeat it. Now, when a similar move is made, he espouses the lobbyists' cause again. His, attitude on this question is one of the reasons 1^hy he is not governor of Texas. And one of the rea,- Sbna Why he is not likely to ever be governor—Wichita Dailv Times. IN HUNTERDON COUNTY Whether Hauptmann is guilty or not seems to have decided in the minds of the country people of Hunterdon county. Newspaper men who have spent the duration of the trial in the atmosphere of it say that the German 'is not guilty of the world's most sensational kidnaping. Government agents, and newspaper experts seem to be equally convinced that he is guilty. The atmosphere surrounding a trial sometimes is compiuriicated through invisible telepathy from crowd to jury> and if, as the district attorney indicates he will, Hauptmann does not break and confess, the jury could conceivably return a verdict of not guilty. At .any rate, the trial has created! such attention that ipj p'olite circles Of the east, not to have attended at 16ast one session of the trial is to count; yourself among the "impossible."

County Hesperian. THE NEW 1XEAE IN WASHINGTON .BY RODNEY DUTCHER- NEA Service Staff Correspondent f» WASHINGTON.— Col. Ed Halsey, secretary of the sjinate, has been here so long that he even can.remem- 'b«r when congress thought $1000 was a lot of money. J Thirty-seven years ago, Halsey, went to work as a •tiage. But only three decades ago, he recalls, as the Senate considers spending five billion dollars for relieJ spone, Senator Edmund Pettus of Alabama was telling a donetituent about to listen to a debate: "You won't, understand! 'it. They don't mention anything less than $1000!" * * * * After an estrangement of many years, Senators Hiram Johnson and Sill Borah jointly led the fight again® World Co;;rt entry and actually got to the point where y r o,u'd see them with their arms on each other's shoulders 'Old-timers recalled their association in. the postwar 'League of ,Nations struggle.

But there are too many bygones between these • two 'celebrated libei-al independents to be completely forgot .-'ten, Reeling between them arouse as far back as 1912; when Borah refused to back the Teddy Roosevelt'John- '.son Bull Moose ticket.

HB has since 'been sour over the fact that Johnson 'gave the job to a friend from his home 'state who made What Borah calls "a chamber of commerce speech abou flip, beauties of California" which did the candidate no . good at all. In the last congress the Johnson-Borah bitterness hac been built up to its full height. The two senators even ' mean cracks at each other on the senate, floor.

Mullen of Nebraska w.ho was forced by White House pressure to resign from ttye 'dempcratic national committee so that his h'igh- 'prieed lobbying activities here wouldn't seem to have o'f- fjscal sanction. . , . In case you supposed that idealistic New r Deal ofjfi- cjals.; might be diffident about associating publicity with •3li% Mullen after th^t, you may be interested in. the 'description of one of Mr. Mullen's recent copktail parties ;as taken from local society, columns:.

Col. Urrea wrote asking the, exans be given all consideration nd that th«y be employed In erect-' ig houses and building new quar- ers. The very same day an official rder came from-Santa Anna that. tl prisoners who surrendered by orce t)f arms be shot. As the prisoners were led out in a ngle file to the open space to be lot at sunrise on the morning of larch 27, thoughts of homes and amllies they were leaving behind nist have occupied their minds. erhaps by the time the Bluebon- ets were In bloom again all the. dbdstalns would be gone from the eld of war. They had done their est to protect their homeland and heir rights. Some day their deaths ight not be in vain. Col. Fannin, wounded and ill, did ot change Us expression except or one horrified shadow which icked across his face when he ea'rd that he was to die as his riends had died. He had only two equests: Both were refused. He sked. that he not be shot through he head, and that he be given a de- ent burial. He was shot in the head; his bfldy burned on the ftfaer- al pyre with the others. . It was a violent shcick to trrrta when he heard, hours later, ot the massacre. Of course the TfeXans were his enemies, but after all, he Had nothing absolutely personal against them. "I never thought that the horrible spectacle of that massacre could take place In cold blood and without immediate urgency. ... It was painful to nie, also that so many brave men should be secrificed, particularly the much esteemed and fearless Fannirfc" "Fannin was a gentlemeto, and a Inan of courage which makes us soldiers esteem each other 'mutu* ally, 'Mis manners captivated my affection, and if it had been Ih niy hands to save him, together With, his companions, I would have gladly done so. All I could d& was to offer him to use my influence with the general-in-chief, which I did from the Guadalupe." It is said that he had such little power; for if he had had his will, the Texans would haVe experienced a different fate.
