(AP) —Stocks stopped Into the recovery parade today and retrieved fractions to 0 or w points of their recent relapse. The come-bftclt -was accomplished on ccptfonally small volume considering the breadth of the advance. Financial commentators thought many traders were still "frozen" in and tin- able to participate because of impaired margin accounts. Others, it -was believed, were a bit skeptical of the reversal of trend and declined to leave the sidelines until the right-about waa more definitely established. BrokoruBe quarters said the upturn wns partly of a technical nature, inspired by considerable short covering, reinvestment demand, drying up of foreign selling am! improvement in lately weak parts and London markets. Steels and rails led the revival, closely trailed by farm implements, rxibbers, electrical equipments and specialties. There wns some cashing in of profits on the finnl lap and top prices were lnw- ered in many instances before the close.

' coig PLI OPPOSE' DEUIlf IB VOTE WASHINGTON, April 30.. -(/Pi- Administration leaders endoavored today . to speed a Senate Judiciary committee vote on the Roosevelt court bill despite the prospect of an unfavorable outcome. Roosevelt chieftains, claiming sufficient votes in the Senate to pass the bill, even in the face of an adverse committee report, expressed displeasure at the agreement to delay the committee decision until May 18. STOOPING OAK, Tenn., April 30. W—So weak that he gasped for breath after the slightest movement, 45-year-old Jackson Whitlow faced what he said was his fifty second foodless day today, still staunch in his determination "not to ; eat until the Lord calls." His sad-faced wife who said she "believes Jackson will never eat again," remained constantly by his bedside, from time to time moistening his tongue with a wet cloth. Hospital Notes Mrs. L. J. Lampkin of Skellytown was admitted to Pampa-Jarratt hospital tliis morning. JVtrs. S. H. Stone and son left Pampa-Jarratt hospital yesterday. Mrs. H. C. Vaughan was able to leave Pampa-Jarratt hospital yesterday. Mrs. Clyde King left Pampa-Jarratt hospital yesterday. Mrs. Joe Sen wind and .daughter, Wadeliene, returned yesterday from Kansas City, their former home, where they visited two weeks. (Continued Froin Pag« i) from the proud Basque capital on Spain's northwestern sea.) Juari Antonio Aguiree, president of the Basque autonomous republic, notified Madrid of the ESpana sink* ing.. It also was tahouiieed by the ministry of marine at Valencia. A .fleet 6f government bombers swanned over the Espaha, raining ; explosives on her. One struck squarely amidships, official sources reported, and the vessel disappeared quickly and completely beneath the waves. The government bombers reached Snntander only yesterday, -brought by the Valencia government's minister of air, Indalecio Prleto, to fill a serious gap in the Basque's defenses. The Velasco was reported to have fled to sea. It was by far the most important naval incident of the war. Whether there were any casualties was not established. Nor was the size of the Espana's crew at the time of the bombing known in government circles. For months the Espana had harried the government coast line. Only yesterday, she wirelessed a warning that she would fire upon any British merchant ship venturing within Bilbao hnrbor. Today the whole dramatic incident off Spain's northwestern ledge took 2 1-2 hours, from the time the British steamer Brotra was attacked to the moment the Espana slirl under the sea. Just as the battleship foamed to the side of the Velasco to help her seize the British vessel, the alarm was sounded ashore. Rapidly .the government planes took off from Santander, down the coast west of Bilbao. Crew In Panic A rain of dart-like bombs slanted to the sea. The Espana, at the time, was firing the last of a dozen shells at the British merchantman and the merchantman's radio was sparkling with SOS calls. The aerial marksmen worked with deadly accuracycsaid reports reach- Ing the shore. Aboard the Espana, the crew appeared in a panic. Without bothering to lower boats, many leaped Into the water. Two other food ships, the Black- hill for Bilbao, the Consett for Santander. left French ports today. Along the beleaguered, fort encircled Basque front ashore, the men of Bilbao pushed their efforts to evacuate their women and children and to spare them from such insurgent air raids as they blame for the devastation of Guernica, their "sacred city," where 800 died Monday. To Aid liillmo? (In France, Foreign Minister Yvon Delbos told senators that Britain and France would try to find out if Ger- man planes bombed Guernica, now the Broadway of marching insurgr ent armies. He also said Britain and France had agreed that measures must be taken to aid the Bilbao evacuation). Insurgent warplanes blastitg at Bilbao's "Maginot line" of fortifications sought today to clear the path ahead of an insurgent army crushing its way from the east. Pag* 1) go ojrer to the next Wednesday. A two-thirds vote of the senate only would be necessary to suspend the rule. In the past, he said, such bills would merely go over until Friday, or be considered virtually without break, and the consent of the house Would be required to set aside the rule. 'Premium On Filibustering' Charging the rule "puts a premium on filibustering" and the senate calendar of house bills was "hopelessly clogged," the governor said. "In other words, where heretofore, as a matter of right, a bill pending at adjournment on Thursday was still pending business Friday morning, it would not require 21 affirmative votes to secure this simple right which has been commonly recognized throughout the legislative history of Texas." The rules would apply at a special session also, he said, asserting they would permit a minority of 11 in the senate to kill tax legislation if it wished. Minority Rules "This power on the part of a minority to thwart final action on a bill even though it -could command a majority for passage has been amply demonstrated again and again during this session," he said. He further objected to a rule :Whlch he said would require a majority vote of all members of the senate, or 16 ,to bring a bill out Of a senate committee on a minority report, whereas in the past only a majority of a quorum was necessary. •:,."A majority of a quorum can finally pass a bill if it 'is -up for consideration," he said, "but. a majority of the entire membership of the senate is required to bring a bill out of committee on minority report so that a mere majority can pass it. In other words, 11 of 21 members can finally pass a bill, but it would take 16 of 21 members to bring a bill out on minority report to get it where 11 can pass it.'" He said it was Vhigh time we adopt rules and procedure designed to protect the majority rather than the minority," and concluded: "I charge that it is possible under present senate rules to block the will of the people of Texas by a minority vote."

April 30 </P)— Inspector Will Fritz of the Dallas police department today circulated a description of a former resident of this city who he said is wanted in connection with two murders, an attempted murder, two robberies and for questioning in connection with the Lorius-Heberer disappearance two years ago. The suspect was described as 24 years old. five feet H inches tall, weight 140 pounds, wavy blond hair and a fair complexion. His woman companion. Frits! said, is 20. has brown hair and eyes slightly prominent front teeth, dark complexion, and her right eye twitches. The George Lorlus party wns last seen at Vaimhn. N. M. May 22. 1935, traveling west. The auto, occupied by one man, wns in a wreck at Socorro. N. M.. the next day. Travelers checks issued to George Lorius wore cashed at several points between El Pcwo and Dallas between May 23 and 28. The missing party Inrludrd Lorius and his wife, of Enst St. Louis and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hobercr of Duquoin. 111. "The man is a logical suspect in the Lorius case," Frit:; said "as IIP is known to have been in the locality from which the victims disnppenred i and also in the vicinity of the New | Mexico town where they were seen j last. The Lorius auto was found i here." The manhunt started after Jack Griffith, Fort Worth cafe owner, was shot when Griffith attempted to capture the suspect after an attempted purse ."Hatching. The suspect's auto was found in Dallas an hour after the Fort Worth shooting. It bore a Utah license number, but a check of the engine numbers showed the vehicle belonged to Alvin C. Phanders of Rockford, 111., slain during a robbery several weeks ago in that city. Rockford police advised Fritz that the same suspect was sought in connection with another murder and robbery in that city prior to the slaying of Phanders. A pistol found in the suspect's abandoned car was sent to Rockford. FINED $200. A jury in city court Wednesday assessed a fine of $200 against Dtw'r Specter, as operator of the Pampa Junk Company, on a charge of obtaining .funk within the city limits without keeping a record as required by city ordinance. The fine was the maximum. Specter's attorney announced that he would tile ail appeal in county court.
