Behind the trouble, said negro children who were victims of sticks and stones as they made tlielr way to school, was a remark concerning Boxer Joe Louis, victor over Max Baer, in New York Tuesday night. At least 20 men and youths of both rac=s were under arrest on assorted charges. One patrolman reported he was Injured as he chased negro assailants of an unidentified •white man; another stiid he dodged numerous rocks as he attempted to take a* man into custody. Classes continued at Oylcr junior high school, center of the disturbance, today. John M. Downer, the principal, reported a 10 per cent decrease in attendance of the 1,200 students registered. That represented the negro enrolment there, he said. Police stationed at both ends of the Eighth street viaduct, leading from the principal negro quarter to the school, kept crowds from gathering, 'Continued Prom Page 1) national spirit, nnd subject to strong outside Influences, can be set apart and told to govern themselves. . xt» URGES BIG ALLOWABLE MARSHALL. Sent. 27. (^—Congressman Wright Patman, of Texas urged the Texas railroad commission today to give the "Texas side" of the Rodessa oil field a larger allowable in order that Texas operators may hava "a fair and impartial chance 'with Louisiana operators." BOWGKR MAN KILLED SAYRE, Okla., Sept. 27 (AP)~ T. C. Stimson. Borger, Tex., oil man, was killed near here yesterday when the car in which he was riding overturned. LEGISLATION Irani ptwe i.< commission's staff never saw am oil well but was hired for political purposes and because they were recommended by members of the legislature. AUSTIN, Sept. 27. t/P)— A legislative investigating committee formally charged the railroad commission today with administration of cil proratlon ro Inefficient in instances It was "ludicrous." It reported many commission em- plcyes weie incompetent, East Texas refineries were running huge quantities of hot oil, the tender system was based on inaccurate bookkeeping and the commission had been victimized by designing operators. Operation of the law authorizing confiscation of illegal oil had put the slate in the "hot oil" business, the committee charged, "legal racketeering" had arisen and law violators had kept "at least a full length ahead" of enforcement. The repoit was signed by all members of the committee which conducted exhaustive investigations last summer. They were reps. Augustine Celaya of Brownsville, chairman Harry N. Graves of Georgetown, Walter E. Jones of Jourdanton. Sidney Latham of Longview and Hugh B. Steward of Falrfield. Ernest O. Thompson, commission chairman, who had testified at the hearings, delayed comment pending n study of the report. Other com- mis'tnners are Lon Smith and C. V. Terrell. Alleging poor coordination between the commission, the attorney general's department and the comptroller, the committee said the attorney general had been handicapped in legal actions against law violators by lack of information supposed to be supplied by the oil and gas division of the commission. Incompetent Men Employed It said it had found "wholesale employment of inexperienced, incompetent men in whose hands was placed the administration and control of cue of the state's largest and most valuable industries from which the state derives its greatest revenues." Asserting the tender system under which oil is allowed to move from the field was predicated upon keeping voluminous records, the committee said it found "little ex- f-spt inaccuracies, incompetencies, incongruities, and practically nothing would bespeak an efficient administration of.the system." "It was not surprising to find that with such a slack and inefficient system cf keeping records," the committee reported, "the commission has been victimized at the hands of designing operators who furnished the commission with false state- Graceful 'New Speed Lines Distinguishes Buiek's Hood You Expect to Buy a Fur Coat This Fall It Will Pay You to Take' Advantage of Our Annual Fur Coat Saturday and Monday STYLES —Long Coat —Three-quarter Swagger —Full-length Swagger —Finger-tip Isngth —Jackets —Fur Capes FURS —Sealines —Lapin —Caracul —Russian Cat —Civit Cat —Hudson Seal —Grey Squirrel —Marmot —Silver Muskrat —Dark Muskrat More Than 100 Coats for Your Selection By selecting your coat now you can SAVE FROM §6 f X to 35%. + %/!, can i'A\c advantage of our lay-a-way plan or arrangements can be made for a budget payment plan, But do it now.

One Instance Cited "In one instance," the committee said, "during April, 1935, one plant, though classified by the commission as operating on strictly legal oil, actually ran approximately 204,000 barrels cf excoss oil through its stills." The committee said that while hearings by commission employes on applications for drilling permits were informal, "certain persons" appeared for the applicants with "marked regularity" and had a high percentage of success. "It appears that many exhorbitant fees have been paid for a minimum amount of services, the necessity of which in many instances 15 highly questionable," it said, "and conclusive indications point to the fact personalities ate considered as well as merits and physical facts." The committee said a "similar situation" had existed in the administration of the oil confiscation law which had "all but put -the state Into the 'hot oil business' and given rise to a form of 'legal' racketeering with numerous ramifications." It asserted that in confiscation suits allegations of larger quantiies of oil in storage than actually exist- Girl Afflicted With Wanderlust Returned Home A 15-year-old girl is safe in her nnrrnts home near Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and Chief of Police and Mrs. Art Hurst has returned to Pampa after fakintr her there. The girl was picked up here more than a week ago. Her Identity was established . only after long hours of questioning and telegraphing by relief officials and police. Money to send the girl back home was secured from the relief commission am', an interested Pampa woman. Chief Hurst reported that the family resided in an old log cabin off all main roads a few miles from Eureka Springs. The family consisted of the mother and father and an older sister. The parents said the two girls wers on a visit to Joplin, Mo., and that en route home the younger daughter decided to travel. NEW YORK, Sept. 27. (IP)— The stock market gave most of its buy- Ing attention to specialties today as many of the recent leaders milled about indifferently.

The Leon river on which one of the major dams 'of the PWA protect was planned, had overflowed thousand; ' of acres of farm land, and the Lampasas river and Nolan "reek poured floodwater into the Little river. Several bridges were washed out, and heavy damages to eropj were predicted. The Brnzos project, said to be th(! first in the nation planned on the watershed control basis, calls for construction of 13 major dnms, for which specifications have been completed.

"Some improvement has been noted iiu the handling of the cases," the committee added, "by providing in the court orders provisions for further payment or refunds as an actual gauge of the oil on hand might show to be necessary." The committee said the adminis- tratUn cf the law had virtually amounted to* the state's placing oil tenders on the auction block and selling permits to move illegal oil.

UP)— Active months broke out of their narrow range on the upside during the mcrnlng and showed smal net. gains ranging from 3 to 5 points Weathers reports were largely responsible for the reversal in sentiment as professionals picked up a little cotton on unfavorable climatic conditions in Texas and the uncertain course of the tropical storms In the Caribbean sea.

Knowing that the Ethiopian delegation at Geneva believes war inevitable, the king of kings—central figure in today's ceremonies—awaited only a signal from his delegation to boom the drums of mobilization throughout the land. Proclamation pesters already weie in print. The sovereign told his friends during the festival that he was optimistic that if world powers applied sanctions against Italy, his army wculd be able to hold out against the • fascists for at least three months through Guerilla tactics. Some associates of the emperor even foresaw that he might allow the Italians, in the first flush of victory, to advance 60 or 70 miles into Ethiopia before the first defenses were encountered. The emperor would then order his warriors, they said, to unloosen their lions of Judah and their dogs of war from the heights of the mountains. Today's maskal ceremonies were a mixtures of religion, war, politics and gayety. From the spot where he was crowned king of kings in 1930, Emperor Haile Selassie reviewed his ! warriors, clad in lion skins, as they brandished, swords, daggers, spears and rifles.. He listened patiently and proudly, like a feudal patriarchal chief while hardy tribesmen recounted thel 1 deeris of vslor and darini?, and reaffirmed their undying loyalty.

What's the sense of putting.up with anything but perfect cakes, Calumet cakes ?" Why does Calumet give such astonishing "baking luck"? Why is it different from other baking powders? It's because of the way Calumet combines two distinct leavening actions. A quick action for the mixing bowl—set free by liquid. A slower action for the oven—set free by heat. Calumet's double action is so perfectly balanced and controlled that it produces perfect leavening. And it's perfection that you can always count on.
