MARRIED MAN with family wants job on farm or ranch. Will go anywhere. Excellent references fur- sociates of the defendant, 19-year- old son of Franklin E. Kennamer, Federal judge for the northern dis- irict of Oklahoma. Kennamer, in a sensational 3-hour stay on the stand yesterday, brought the trial to a climax. Calmly, he answered all questions, even voluteering answers after his counsel had overruled him. His choice of English was precise, and brought frowns of perplexity to the faces of some of the spectators. In even tones he testified he associated with Gorrell in an attempt to thwart an extortion plot entered by the student dentist. The plot, he said, was aimed at Virginia Wilcox, 19-year-old daughter of H. F. Wilcox, Tulsa oil millionaire. "Do you love her now?" Kennamer was question. "Yes," he breathed, almost in- atidibly; Without hesitation, Phil Kennamer swung into his recital of the events of the Tulsa automobile ride Thanksgiving night, which ended with Gorrell's death—shot with his own pistol. Kennamer said Gorrell asked him how the plot was progressing, and if he had mailed the extortion letter. "I told him I had not," testified Kennamer, "and that I did not intend to do so. I told him I was going to do all I could to prevent any harm coming to Virginia Wilcox. I told him I would go to the authori- nished. Jack Clift. Courts, cottage 4.

Pampa is favored to capture the local tournament. Led by Capt. J. R. Green, the Harvesters went on a scoring spree this past week-end and defeated the Hedley Owls and the Canyon Eagles. Green scored 27 points Friday night in defeating Hedley 50-11. Hedley has a new coach and young and inexperienced material this year and was no match for the Harvesters. Canyon fell before a barrage ot points Saturday night and lost 40-17. J. R. Green sank 30 points in this game. Edward Scott, guard, who has been hampered by illness, played commendably in these two games. In the Canyon game Scott brought it right up to my face and he snapped it. "There was a brief struggle. 1 was pushing him in the face and attempting to turn the gun on him. "There was an explosion. I don't know who pulled the trigger." Two psychiatrists testified they believed Kennamer suffering from a' type of insanity known as "psychopathic personality" at the time Gorrell was slain. Kennamer himself has insisted upon the witness stand that he is and was sane. Should rebuttal witnesses testify briskly, a possibility exists that closing arguments may be started tomorrow. .«. Girls Will Compete For Championship Miss Kathleen Milam, director of girls athletics, has announced that the Harvesterettes will play a 3- game series with the winner of the Panhandle-Goodnight tilt. The series will probably begin Wednesday and will determine the bi-sectional girl champions. Have your & Thomas. shoes fitted at Kees (Adv.) sank one of the prettiest field goals of the season after dribbling down the court to a scoring position. In both games Stokes Green, brother of J. R., was second high point man. His playing has been vastly improved. Mayse Nash, usually a constant scoring threat, has failed to click in the last few games. Nash has usually been among the high point men for the season but his scoring has fallen off noticeably. •* Horace Mann, Will Give Program for Assembly Tomorrow Horace Mann school, under the direction of Miss Josephine Thomas, will put on a program for assembly tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock in the gym. A chorus composed of 70 boys and girls will begin the program. A "still life" representing colonial days and also a chorus composed of ten girls will be presented. Those girls are: Dorothy Nell Trumble, Hazel Claxton, Geraldine Smith, Mary Mac McCue, Iris Williams, June Marie Amick, Neva Lou Woodhouse, Eloise Taylor, Geneva Lou Stevens and Peggy Cunningham. Miss Frances McCue and Miss Ask Leslie Holley and Paloma Cox why Mr. Phillips called them Romeo and Juliet. Miss Branom's door is now called "shut me not." Mr. Smellage: When did you hold up your hand? Rosemary: I held up my hand for half an hour a minute ago. Anyone having any information about Mr. Osborne's hat that was lost in Amarillo, please keep it to yourself, for he wanted to lose it anyway. . . Mr. Dennard says that he is going to stick by his alibi that he skinned his head on the car top. We wonder! Snooper thinks Leon Miller has dramatic" typing ability, judging from his actions last Friday while trying to type a letter. Shirley Temple has a rival, judging from the young lady who sang "The Good Ship Lollypop" in assembly last week. Why did Clyde Johnson's face get red when someone asked him why Missouri was the lonesomest place in the United States? George Lane says he can get all the pictures we want of Christina Hendrix. Telling off on Big Brother, George? Beware of Blanche McMillen? chocolate candy. At a local banquet, Mr. Smellage was heard to remark as he handed Miss Siddons the butter, "Take two they're little." Mildred Tolbert is a very, very popular girl, or that is the conclusion Snooper came to after observing the male escorts she came into assembly with last Friday. Miss McFarlin was very proud of the Valentine someone sent her. Some of the lady teachers seem anxious to take up Mr. Phillips' offer in assembly last week. Snooper has came to the conclusion John Martin is an exact duplicate of Harold Bray. Rex: What is drama? Mickey: Above your head. Rex: Oh, you're-thinking of a hat. Those girls who want someone to take care of their purses, see Frank Mc'Laughlin, expert purse carrier. Ask Flora Deen Finley about holding up the works. * Snooper thinks Albert Austin would make a good Macbeth because his voice sounds spookey at the right time in those eerie scenes in the "Tragedy, of Macbeth." Some kind janitor should fix the door of room 311. Miss Branom and Mr. Phillips have a. terrible time keeping it closed. "Where we are there's daggers in men's smiles," quoted Miss May from Shakespeare's "Macbeth." She added, for an example, that when Tumbling Team to Appear This Week Under the guidance of Harry Kelley, the high school tumbling ;eam Is scheduled for two appearances this week. Last night the team appeared be- ore the Magnolia Safety Institute at the city hall. P. T. A. will be host to the squad tonight in a pro- tram entirely of gymnastics. Per- ormances will be on the parallel bars, trapeze, and tumbling. The team is composed of: Brownie Boyington, Malcolm Albertson, Wincer Baker, Buck Hays. Leon Harris, R. B. Ragsdale. Bill Seeds, James Herring, James Kidwell, Hol- lls McClain, George Porter, Ralph Hamilton, Bill Morrow, Jim Bob Johnson, and Arvo Goddard. •»• • Students Enjoyed Assembly Program High school students thoroughly enjoyed the assembly program presented by Sam Houston school lasl week and were eager to^ know the little folks who took part. First grade youngsters from Miss Wilma Chapman's room gave the following numbers: . v Welcome Song—Kenneth Seyffert Song, "Who Will Be My Valen- Much Class Spirit Is Shown on First Voting Day Voting in the annual's beauty and popularity contest, though started only yesterday, has already become heated.

Club Offers Prize For Best Poems For the best original poem by A student of Pampn high school, El Progresso club will give a prize of $2.50, according to announcement made last week by Miss Pannle May, head of he English department. Second prize will be $2. The contest will close March 1. A student may submit as many poems as he wishes, and no limitations have been placed on type or subject matter. Students may ask their English teachers for suggestions and corrections before turning in the final copy. Typewritten copies of the poems must be in the hands of Miss May by March 1. Instead of writing his name at the end of the poem, the student should put his name and classification at the top of the page wwhere he ordinarily endorses papers. The purpose of the contest Is to encourage students In creative expression. "Many students make frequent atempts at writing poetry and now p.nd then show their efforts to their teachers," Miss May says. "But many others could do some really fine things if they only tried." She urges that students not be timid, about submitting their poems. This contest is one of two being sponsored by El Progreaso club.

The students of Wpodrow Wilson and Sam Houston schools who presented the fine programs in our last two assemblies certainly deserve some credit. They should make us ashamed of ourselves, for, if we worked as hard as they evidently do, there would be no end of the things P. H. S. could accomplish with all its talent. Is it time to start thinking seriously about Interscholastic league literary events. The athletic teams can get all the support they need very easily; so nothing needs to be said about them. But isn't it more credit to a school to be outstanding in literary events? , we pass some girl that's been stepping with out boy friend we smile at her, but— • Snooper learned from Lorita Hogan that all a person needs to become a reporter is two pencils. Ask Dorothy Darling which joke she enjoyed the best in the sixth hour study hall'Friday. Snooper wonders when Mildred Tolbert joined Hi-Y. Even though the weatherman says it's not so, spring has sprung. You should hear Jerry Mitchell or Lillion Rice recite that cute poem. Snooper hears Madge Tiemann is so dumb she wondered why there weren't 11 men on the basket ball team. Sh actually hollered' for a touchdown Friday night. Snooper hears Howard Zimmerman and James Foster really went over big with the girls at Heald. (Little country church). Did you hear someone say that girl reporters would make.a basketball game sound like a tea party? Well, some certain co-eds wonder how a boy would write up a wedding or any other social affairs? It might sound like a football game. Invitations were mailed today to 50 high schools in the Panhandle, asking the staffs and faculty advisers of the school newspapers, annuals, and magazines to attend the second annual jconvention of Faculty to Play Groom Quintet Groom's strong independent basketball team will play the Pampa Faculty team here Wednesday night, according to W. N. Anderson, faculty manager. The Pee-Wees will play the Mobeetie Pee-Wees preceding the Groom-Pampa game. Townsend leads the Groom aggregation. He was selected on the all-state basketball and track teams in 1932. Townsend is one of the outstanding basketball players in the Panhandle. The faculty have played the Groom team once at Groom and won 30-25. Odus Mitchell and Frank Monroe, former WTSTC players, are the stars for the faculty. An amateur independent basketball tournament will be sponsored in Groom, next week by the inde- pjndenls. Entry of the local team lias already been mailed. The probably starting lineup for the faculty is: E. N. Dennard, guard; Winston Savage, guard; Odus Mitchell, center; Frank Monroe, forward; Bennett or Kelley, forward. .«Debaters to Go To WicMta Falls Shorthand students met last Thursday and organized the Commercial club, which will meet twice a month at 6:30 o'clock. It is composed of 27 members. Tile following officers were elected: Sarah De Woody, president; Joyce Smith, vice president; and. Julia Baker, secretary. The aim of the club is to discuss topics of interest to stenographers which arc not covered in a regular stenographic course, and also to help students learn shorthand better and faster, to help the members to develop tact, patience, and consideration of others, and to help them develop cooperative ability. Members answer the roll call with a current event. "We will be glad to have any visitors who are interested in the progress of shorthand," said Miss Zenobia McFarlin, club sponsor. At the first meeting of the club, Principal L. L. Sone gave a talk on "Some of the Qualities to Be Found in a Good Stenographer." Some of the main points brought out in his talk were: Keep business inside the doors of the office, accuracy, system, of routine, personal appearance, de- do as pendability, and learning to you are told. The club has the following committees: Social, Julia Baker, Hester Lster, and Odessa Winkler; publicity, Rosa Belle Feed, Jones Make, and Jerry Mitchell; entertainment, Joyce Smith, Christine Harshey, and Burton Tolbert. Panhandle High School Press the association to be held here April 27, according to Elsie Johnson, secretary-treasurer of the organization.

Programs'planned by the officers are presented the first 15 minutes each Wednesday and Friday morning. During the home room period last week, the class took pictures and developed them in the chemistry laboratory. Some of them will appear in the annual. Gorilla Team Ends Basketball Season After finishing a half-way successful season the Gorillas under Coach Harry Kelly have disbanded their basketball team for the remainder of the season. The Gorillas have not lost to a second team of any school. All losses have been at the hand of first teams. They have won fifty per cent of their games this season. John Martin and La Verne Courson are fast becoming one of the best debate teams in the Panhandle, according to their coach, Doyle F. Ostaorne. The boys gave an excellent account of themselves at the speech tournament held in Amarillo last week-end, winning four of five matches. They will represent P. H. S. at an invitation tournament in Wichita Falls, March 8 and 9. Lorita Hogan and Goldie Blodgett were the Pampa girls in the tournament, at which ten schools were represented. Lorita Hogan's withdrawal from this activity to concentrate on her studies will necessitate a new combination. Hazel Bath will probably take her place.
