TAYLOR'S MAGNETO HOUSE AMERICAN HUARACHES •$ GREEN ESTATE (Continued From Page One) a decision holding unconstitutional those sections of the 1934 Na tlonal Firearms Act which bar the Interstate shipment or carry- Ing of certain firearms without registration. The government ap pealed the case from the Western Arkansas district court. In the Green case, Special Master Flannery found that the value of tangible property In the three states other than Massachusetts, which might be Involved In future tax ll.lgatlon, was: New York, $1,583,221, Florida, $222,276, and Texas, $2,220. Frankfurter's dissent expressed the opinion the court was without jurisdiction and that the bill of complaint of Texas should be dismissed. The newest Justice quoted the late Chief Justice Fuller as say- Ing that in cases of disputes between the state "the jurisdiction is of so delicate and grave character that it was not contemplated that it would be exercised save when the necessity was a absolute."

The men were charged with transporting contraband of "hot" oil from the Conroe field, Montgomery county, Texas, to Marcus Hook, Pa. They are H. E. Hines, Neal Powers and Renne Allred. The government appealed from the Southern Texas Federal District Court which dismissed the case. The Connally act was to have expired June 16, 1938, but congress extended its application to June 30, 1939. The district court found that as the first Connally act "but its own terms expired June 16, 1937" and that there was no provision in the second act to "preserve the right to prosecute violations of the first act." Th* government contended that where a statute is amended by substantially reenacting it," the first offense may be prosecuted. Bitter Pill for Texas. AUSTIN, March 13.—(/P)—Decision of the United States Supreme Court today in the E. H. R. Green inheritance tax case was a bitter pill for Texas but far from surprising. When former Attorney General William McCraw Instituted Texas' fight for the taxes in 1937, some persons believed there was a possibility of the state collect- Ing almost enough money to eliminate the general fund deficit. Most Texans lost virtually all hope, however, when a special master who had been hearing the controversy held last November for Massachusetts. The Supreme Court today upheld the master's findings and the Texas attorney general's department said that apparently ended the fight. Hearings on the case were held In widely separated cities, including Dallas, Fort Worth and Terrell, Texas. Terrell was the eccentric multimillionaire's onetime home and McCraw contend^ ed without avail that it remained his home until his death In 1936.

SERIES COMMUNITY MEETINGS FOR AID FARMERS PLANNED A series of community meetings where the latest information regarding the 1939 farm program will be passed on to farmers of the county has been announced by Roy R. Keelin/, chairman of the county committee, Navarro county, A.C.A. "In the past many farmer* have failed to earn the maximum benefit payments on their farm through failure to acquaint themselves with the necessary requirements," said Keeling. "This has applied particularly to the soil building practice payment. We are anxious for every farmer to be familiar with this detail of the program, which if properly understood and the necessary practices adopted in our Individual farming operations, will mean many thousands of dollars additional income for our county in 1939." The meetings will start Monday, March 13, with those at Rice and Emhouse, at 7:30 p. m,; Wednesday, March 15, Navarro and Richland, at 7:30 p. m.; Thursday, March 16, Bazette at 7:30 p. m.; Friday, March 17, Blooming Grove and Chatfleld, at 7:30 p. m.; Saturday, March 18, Frost at 2 p. m.

A. assisted by Sinclair Baker, administrative assistant; H. C. Robinson, county agent, and W. R. Holsey, county agent emeritus. SADLER (Continued From Page One) Smith of the commission said he favored lifting Saturday shutdown possibly In April and Sunday shutdowns some time thereafter. The state oil proratlon hearing has been scheduled by the commission for Wednesday. "Records in possession of the commission reveal that in the 184 pools in the Houston area the shutdown order is In no way being observed—that wells are being produced seven days per week with surprisingly high allowables," Sadler asserted. "A like situation exists in the Midland . area," he said, "while in other sections of the state production is prohibited to five days. In my opinion, there is no just reason why wells in these particular areas should be permitted to be operated under such discriminatory conditions, wbjle the malnder of the Texas wells Is being penalized. I am strongly opposed to practices of this sort. "I say that Gulf coast and West Texas allowables must be reduced in line with those in other sections of the state. By bringing about such an equalization or adjustment, the commission can lift its shutdown order and allow all fields to produce seven days a week again. With this done, I believe that not only the oil Indus- ary, but many other Texas business will be materially aided." The two-day closures have been In effect about a year. MRS.

Germany to Intervene. (In Berlin, official sources said Germany would intervene In some way In the Czecho-Slovak situation. The mildest form of Intervention would be by diplomatic representations but the possibility of "stronger action if necessary" was also mentioned by the foreign office spokesman.) The official Czecho-Slovak agency charged the German minority in Brunn and Bratislava has misused the regulation of flying the German flag set by law. Separatist propaganda in the Slovak language continued to be broadcast by the Vienna radio station. Fredlnand Murgas, fugitive chief of the Hllnka guards' political staff, spoke at mid-day, assuring the Slovak people "Europe's greatest man, Hitler, holds his protestlve hand over the Slovaks. "Be prepared for an Independent Slovak state." Murgas appealed to Germany last Friday after breaking with the new Slovak premier, Karl Sidor, whom Murgos charged with being In league with Czechs and with Impending the Independence movement.

In a new plea for unity, Secretary of Labor Perkins issued a statement "in Washington last night asking employers, workers and union officials to "do everything they can In a constructive way to advance the chances for successful negotiations."

' / Memorandum from LOUIS SIMS / 307 Jejter Building White's Chapel. "Large equipment in a kitchen is never right by accident," Miss Clara Rettiger Home Demonstra- ton agent told a group'of 28 home demonstration club women at the home of Miss Alice Crumbley Wednesday, Miss Rettiger continued by saying the kitchen furniture should be selected according to the needs 'of the pieces and the floor space in the kitchen. A kitchen is a food workshop and should be kept sanitary, and have a compact grouping of permanent pieces, such as stoves, cabinet work tables and Ice boxes. When you plan to buy a new piece of kitchen equipment study the need of the piece, where It Is to be placed and the need of the size. Since so much of a woman's time Is spent in the 1 kitchen it is necessary tt have a heater of some kind. If you have a wood stove the heater is not necessary. Any kind of furniture you buy for the kitchen is Letter taste If it is plain, as It Is so much easier to keep clean. Enamel or Porcelain finish Is best.

REORGANIZATION (Continued From Paga One) The house might adopt a reso. lutlon disapproving a reorganization changes. Aa majority of the senate might be in favor of such a resolution. Yet, It might be talked to death unless two-thirds of the senators voted to restrict debate. A plan by Senator Wheeler (D.- Mont.) requires affirmative action by congress before any of the reorganization changes could go into effect, but It provides such action would be obtained promptly. Within a specified time, It requires that a resolution legalizing suggested changes be brought In, debated for one hour and voted on. It cuts away all the parliamentary underbrush that stands in the way of action on the ordinary bill and specifies no words shall be wasted before the ayes and noes shower down.
