; SB—THE SUNDAY AVALAKCHE-WURNAL LUttOCK, TEXAS, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10,193S nip Drive Planned Here Now Botstt Five Lov•C C«f j For sirring Sttfed Bt*t Drives; '35 Carapaifn Will Start S«M Lubbock has participated in a national cleanup-paintup campaign •ten of the last five years. Lubbock has five silver loving cups won tar conducting the best drives of the kind in Texas. The 1935 campaign will get under fray here soon. D. A. Forbess, City fire marshal, appealed Saturday to Lubbock residents to cooperate in keeping the city clean and sanitary. Eliminate lire Hazards Coincident to the cleanup drive, fire hazards will be eliminated, said Forbes, and "merchants must realize the importance of fire hazards and the direct ..loss to all policy .holders from fires." He asked that yards and alleys be kept- clean and that merchants see that trash is placed in cans and packed down so it will remain until garbage wagon crews can remove it. "The garbage collection department of the city is anxious to remove trash from the alleys as rapidly as it accumulates but does not have sufficient forces to clean the entire alley when trash has been allowed to blow from the garbage containers," Forbes said. Tech Fighters iCouUaucd from Page 4; •era and an event of pompous pro- teetUngs at Texas Tech. The fights, seven in all, promise to be worth the tune and price of admission. The North Texas Aggies boast several outstanding boxers, and Cc*ch Harry Guthrie of Tech believes his lads can give good account* of themselves. There will be fights in nearly all weight divisions, from the US- pound bantamweight class to the heavyweight division. In the bantamweight division, Joe Lynch of Tech, a Ft. Worth lad, will meet Harold or Carroll Shaw, one of two twin sets on the North Texas Aggie boxing team. Carroll is the lightest man on the Aggie team, a 1 110 pounds. Harold weighs 118 pounds. C. A. Gibbs of Sweetwater, represents Tech in the featherweight division. The Aggie squad list does not show a fighter in the 125 pound class, but Harold Shaw may be Glbb's opponent. Trouble For Matadors One of the Aggies' most outstanding fighters is James Elder, who meets Bub Nichols of Tech in the lightweight division contest. Elder is undefeated in fourteen fights. Recently he defeated H. J. Francis, state I. M. C. A. champion. He is a football and basketball star. Tech's fighter in the welterweight class, James McDuff of Rails, also faces plenty of trouble. He meets Milton Coffey, one of the Aggies' outstanding performers. Coffey has participated in 46 amateur fights, winning most of them, including the last eixceen in a row. He hat been champion of Casino Park, Fort Worth, twice, and. was tri-state A. A. U. champion in 1933. Several weeks ago he defeated, James Matthews, Southern A. A. U. champion. The presence of Cofley is> expected to prove a special drawing card. He weighs 147 pounds McDuff weighs 145 pounds. The Tech delegate in the middleweight class had not been announced yesterday. Moseley or Edwin Sweet will meet the Aggie middleweight. Mark Smith, ot Cleburne, is to represent Tech in the 165-pound class. Tech boasts two able boxers in the light heavyweight and heavyweight division. The Aggie roster lists, but one 175-pouncle", but the report is that Leonard Applcton ol Baird, Texas, is good enough to take on both Tech heavy weigh ti at the oame time. Appleton won the intramural championship in light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions at Aggie- land last .year. R. C. Mitchell ol Lockney if. down a:, Tech's. 175- pound lighter, but if the Aygics do not bring a heavier man, Coach Guthrie may turn Bull Kutrola, Jarge football tatklc, loose on Appleton. A slugger and a punch-absorber. Katiola is expected to make short work of any man he laces. Katrola Favored K. W. Lambert is coach of the Aggie fighters, who were undefeated last year in a full season of boxing. The 1934 AgKie team defeated both the Dallas and Fort Worth I. M. C. A. teams. Coffey, Appleton and the Elder brothers arc all veterans of last year's squad. Texas Tech officials have announced another change in fight night proceedings. Heretofore limited to men only. Jiglu programs in the future, beginning tonight, will be open to women fans. The prices <" admission arc 40 cents for men, 25 cents for women. Gold Decision Conuuued (tout Fane one) day.' "Orders" May Rrsult "That means no opinions ol any kind?" a newsman asked. "That's it." "How about Tuesday?" "I said Monday."

W. H. Marten said he would hesitate no little while before he would consider swapping his 600 white leghorn hens for an oil well. He ami two oil well*—food ones—but the hens have been a greater source of revenue the last few months. "If jam sboMld five me the choice between 1.200 hens, which weald lay a* the ones I have now, and two oil wells, I'd take the chickens," Mr. Marten said. His third well is ready to be spudded in. Otto Rudel, 65-year-old farmer, has six wells on his 127-acre farm, but plans t« plant his usual 45 acres of cotton, corn and potatoes this year. When asked how it felt to have half a dozen oil wells, Mr. Rudel smiled. "It's all right, but food heavens, I can't quit my farming," he said. "Do yon think a man who has farmed 30 years, as I have, could jnst snap off from his regular work and play around? "No, sir. In fact, this farming is my pleasure." The Tomball field, located in northern Harris county, was discovered in May, 1933, and the proved territory covers over 4,500 acres. The field has 65 producing wells.

American correspondent for the A. B. C. newspaper of Madrid^ Spain, said: "Espinel imitates no one nor is she a reflection of any artist. She is her- j self." i Senorita Espinel will appear in a! lyceum program in the West Texas! State Teachers college auditorium j Wednesday evening. !

"It Seems Like A Dream-I Feel Lost"--Anna Hauptmann ************** ** "I Sit In That Courtroom Amd Ttiik I Most Scream; With All The People IB The World, Why Must Thii HW To U»;" Weary Wife Seem» To Be Bluer Than Erer Before By MARY ELIZABETH PLUMMEK (Copyright, 193S, By Associated FrtM) PLEMINGTON, N. J., Feb. 9— Mrs. Anna Hauptmann opened the top' drawer of her bureau. Inside . i i ... 11 i . were bales of letters she na* received since her husband's trial began. "About five of these are from people I fc n o w," she said. "The rest are from strangers; and ttone say bad Hr*. Haaptman* of them anything to me." The blonde, •weary woman who is the wife of the man accused of murdering the Lindbergh baby, seemed bluer than she has been for days. She sat on her bed end said, "I feel 'verlasse'— lost." Will End Soon "In about three days, this will be over; and then what? I keep saying, "when Richard is back and we are together— I don't dare think anything else. What would life be for me? "Sometimes." she said, "this seems like a dream. I rub my hands over my eyes and can't believe it. My husband is in jail, the baby is away and I am here in a furnished room. With all the people in the world, why must this happen to us? "I sit in that courtroom and think I must scream when they keep on saying, 'sle es gctan haben, sie es getan haben!'" (You did it; you did it.) She has made no plans about what she will do after the trial. Enough Tune To Think "Why think? There will be time enough to think," she said. Asked If she had had offers for work, she said scornfully, "offers to go in the movies." A newspaper picture of her husband and a color print of Christ praying at a rock are propped on her bureau. Her bed is covered with a blue-striped spread. She said she comes home from court, lies down and imagines her husband is home, or that he does the same thing in his jail cell. "People say to me. 'why don't you go to a movie and enjoy yourself?' '' she continued. "I would have no enjoyment. I have sewing to do. but can't keep my mind on it." Dissatisfaction Shown She showed dissatisfaction with the way the trial has gone— "you can't make things clear in that courtroom." For instance— "about the third shelf in my closet, now. where I didn't see the shoebox." Going to her clothes closet, she opened the door and showed how she could hang an apron on a high "If I could have said it in German that would be clear," she said. "And I said I stopped going to Gerta's house 'for reasons.' The reason was, I was expecting the baby. But I could not say that in the courtroom wUh*all those men there. And then they thought I was jealous of Gerta. "She and I never had a cross word. Her house was on Richard's way to work, and I said to him, 'step in.' Gerta's husband often drank coffee with me—German people think nothing of that. Every lime anyone comes you put the coffee pot on. Painted A Scarf "She painted a scarf for me the Christmas I bought her the slip." Mrs. Hauptmann opened another drawer, brought oot the scarf and showed it proudly. "Girls liked Richard and I was proud. At Hunter's Island it was 'hello. Dick—hello. Richard.' "Of course Gerta flirts, but she means nothing by it. She is married seven years, but still a child. After she was on the stand Richard said, 'Gerta is the same big child'." "I can't be like that." Mrs. Hauptmann said, wistfully. "Gerta is as happy without a crust of bread as with one. but I worry, and I never in my life bought a pair of stock- Ings without having the money to pay." hcoi. and not see the top shelf one end. She said Qerta was too flippant In j on the witness stand, "and maybe people didn't like It." Almost 2,000 Students Enroll Friday And Saturday For Texas Tech Courses More than 1.950 students enrolled for the spring semester at Texas Technological college Friday and Saturday, official registration days. Several hundred students are expected to register this week, according to the president of the college. Classes of the spring semester will begin Monday morning at 8 o'clock.

Weather observers said It was probable that a number of separate tornadoes formed during the night, dipping down to cause devastation and casualties at the widely-separated points.
