T MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 1, 1936. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas PAGE FIVE Military Tomb revious Puzr.le CONGRESS TO ADJOURN BY SATURDAY, BELIEVE BY DOUGLAS B. CORNELL. WASHINGTON, June 1 (XP)—Pre- dictions that President Roosevelt would move soon to avert a threatened jam over taxes and to speed Congress homeward by Saturday night were heard today among some administration supporters on Capital Hill. As the seventy-fourth Congress entered What leaders fervently hoped would be Its final week, the Senate was torn by Internal disssenslon over taxes, and also found Itself at odds with the House on the Issue. Moreover, the 12,370,000,000 relief- deficiency bill had yet to clear the Senate, and both houses had much business of a more minor nature to transact, Including some vital appropriation legislation. But congressional leaders insisted It would still be possible to adjourn by Saturday night If President Roosevelt would call off the new deal fight for stiff graduated taxes on undistributed profits of corporations, accept the bill which a rebellious ' Senate finance committee has written, and urge House chiefs to do likewise. Otherwise, It was held, the session might last well into the summer. Capital Hill friends of the chief executive believed that he was weighing both alternatives and some believed it would choose to end the session quickly. While the Senate debated the relief bill today and made arrangements for night sessions if necessary, the leaders moved to take up the tax bill tomorrow. Senator King (D., Utah), acting chairman of the finance committee, planned to submit today the committee's majority report on Its tax plan, which is featured by a 15 Vi per cent levy an net corporation income, a 7 pel 1 cent tax on profits undistributed lo stockholders, and increases of tin. individual income surtaxes in the brackets above $0,000. Senator Black (D., Ala.) prepares to submit a minority report calling for a measure more in line with administration ideas. Among other things, Black favored graduated levies on undistributed corporation earnings up to 30 per cent. Senate leaders were confident that the big relief-deficiency bill, carrying $1,425,000,000 to continue the jobs program next fiscal year, would go through by tonight. The biggest dispute connected with the bill tho struggle over assamaquoddy tidal power project in Maine and the Florida ship ..canal—had. been settled. ., • 1. 7 Tom!) of Hie , In the U. S. A.

SHANGHAI, June 1 (/P)— Inspired by the valiant great wall defenders of 133, General Sung Chen-Yuan, chairman of the Hopeh-Chahar military council, decided today to pursue a stronger policy against Japan's military expansion In North China. Reports from Pelping said this decision was reached following all- night conferences of North China mayors. General Sung, who became head of the semi-autonomous council for Hopeh and Chahar provinces when it was organized last December 18 as a compromise answer to demands for North Chinese independence, was said to have been Inspired in his new stand by officers of the famous twenty-ninth route army. These officers gallanetly defended the great wall passes against Japan three years ago. Japan, nevertheless, steps to accommodate was taking its ever-increasing troops in North China. Pciping advices said new Japanese barracks were being rushed to construction at Pengtal, 10 mites southwest of Peiplng. They are to havo a capacity of 800 soldiers. This new military station was regarded as giving the Japanese virtual control over the strategic rail lines coverging at Pengtal. It was reported reliably that the Japanese also were building military outposts at Chunghlntien. 20 miles southwest of Peiplng, whicl would give Japan command of tin Pinghan line. The stationing of troops al Chunghsintien, Chinese said, would plainly exceed the terms of the Boxer Protocol, which is concerned only with keeping open communications between Peiplng and the coast in tin- event lives of forelgn- V—A Texas Tournament. There was not much room for icoks in the crowded covered wag- into early Texas; that were brought ins that came ut of the few n, one of the most popular was Scott's Ivanhoe. Small wonder thnt attempts were made to recapture ts spirit of knighthood in flower. Our pioneering ancestors were more omantic than we. They were "dream- rs on horseback," and to me their attempts to re-enact the medieval ournamenls celebrated so magnificently by Sir Walter seemed partic- ilarly fine. These tournaments persisted up to the beginning of the new century. It was my good for- ,une once to witness one, and it is ,he most vivid early recollection : have. It took place in Limestone county, this Anglo-American interpretation of the tournament of feudal times. We learned about it in advance and drove far into the hinterland to witness it. The people came from miles around. There was a track about 200 yards lone Ihnt contained two goal posts about ten feet high, placed on the rlBlil-hancl side of the Lrack. Prom the lop of each post extended an arm from which hunt! a wire crook, holding a ring about llrack, the object being to spear as • many rings as possible. The runner made three trips at full speed, guiding his steed with the left hand and holding the lance with the right. The knights were gaily bedight in tight-fitting trousers, high boot?, blouses, and sashes. I remember how fascinated I was by their broad- brimmed black hats, romantically caught up at the sides with long ostrich plumes. As the prizes were,' announced, the winners rode forward on prancing steeds to receive them; each then t'urnecl and presented his guerdon to the Indy of his choice. Here a note of practicality entered into the proceedings; for the prizes were not crowns cr wreaths, as in the medieval tradition, but new spring millinery! Yes, each knight clowned his lady fair with a new two inches in "knight" carried diameter. a ten-foot Each pole tapered to a fine point, which was, his "lance." Mounted on his fiery charger, he rnn tho length of the meant a turning back to the "horse and buggy days." Several months have passsed since Secretary Wallace referred to one feature'of the AAA decision as constituting a "legalized steal." During the interim most administration leaders have been saying little but thinking much. Only sporadic public criticisms of the courts have disclosed how deep was thp feeling of disappointment among those who embrace the political philosophy of the new deal. But all the time the fire has been burning. It would be very strange if the heat of it did not reach the Philadelphia convention. Some Roosevelt men would like lo see the party propose directly a constitutional amendment broadening the powers of the federal government over such matters as wages, hours of labor, prices, and agricultural production. Others suggest that unanimous LAST BODY IS SOUGHT IN 'DUST BOWL' SLUDGE action should be required lo invali-jage to property. GRANADA, Colo..

Some would be content if the .jarty merely reaffirmed its faith in spring hat. This practice, in fact, accounts for our having knowledge of the event.

FAMILY PARTY The Sanford Jorises gave their party during the week before Elinor's wedding. Elinor's wedding was to be a quiet affair, with no attendants except Isabel and Dirk, and Ernest Webb, who was Seymour's best man. Elinor was not yet sufficiently emerged from mourning to attend dances, so both she and Seymour were absent from the Joris party, was a small, though gay, affair, made up chiefly of the younger set. The first floor of the Jorls penthouse in the east sixties was given over to it, and Hope met that night still other Jorises, as well as Sanfords, Rykers, Hamiltons and Van Zaandts.'au relatives of Rupert and Dirk, most of them young. Hope was a different being from the demure person who had attended Elinor's dinner in the gay gown. Dirk, who had heard Adelaide Joris ask Hope to bring her ouitar, saw that it was put into the car that night. Most of the evening Rupert was invisible, tho he appeared at its beginning to dance once with Hope, and later, at Adelaides reminder to hear her ... I mean in the car. She was driven out more of late. Martin had | iea ded west, you see. So I got out, reported the day after the rodeo that she had resumed her shopping. There seemed little more to buy, but Rupert made no obpec- tio'n. Dirk had not received Martins report tonight, though Martin had been ready to make it. "Later," he had said, for Hope herself had told him about the silver comb she had found, and the red-heeled slip- pevs. Much of the evening Dirk had spsnt reen For More Abundant Yields Use Our Field Seeds Selected for us from the growing fields, They are re-cleaned, state tested and tagged and 'show high germination and purity.

Sanford Jorls was a rolid and conventional citizen, but Adelaide's enthusiasms were progressive and inflammable. - She had just finished decorating- her house. Now she was interested in Hope as something odd and vivid and new, dropped suddenly into that grave and settled onttcrn that was "the family." "She didn't let herself out nt minor's," thought Adelaide. "She wan like smoldering coals." J'anfortl had remarked, "You've only Rupert's word for it that she can sing. Suppose she's crude. Remember Rupert's in love." "If Rupert says she can sing, she can sing,' 1 answered Adelaide. "Besides, Rupert's not in love with her. He married her to spite Elinor. I wish I knesv where they met." '•I told you where they met, said Sanford. "She went to him professionally. I've a suspicion that Rupert and Elinor quarreled about her, and Elinor turned to Seymour." "Well, I haven't," said Adelaide On the night of the party she set n bowl of tiger lilies on the s-ilver-and-black piano, and gave Hope a little three-cornered chair bexide it.

NRA, AAA the and other enactments rejected by the court have been very prominent parts of the administration program.

That would recall at once what the supreme court said In condemnation of them. The whole question is wrapped in In one respect, at least, the su- I complications.

When Rupert and Hope had gone upstairs Dirk delayed for Martin's report. Something happened today, Mister Dirk. You know I take Mrs. Joris to the shops, and, park near where I can see her when she comes out. Lately she's been go- Ing to Chez Cimoneite. Sometimes she has stayed a e'ood while, and the cop there has had his eye on me. Today almost as soon as I let Mrs. Joris out he made me move. "Chez Simonette is in Forty- ninth Street, just off Fifth Avenue. So I made a show of moving along, rode toward Sixth, meaning to work back of Forty-eighth Street, and park again till he sent me off. Because you told me to watch, you know. "Well, on Forty-eighth Street I discovered something. I found out that Chez Simonette has another entrance there, a sort of back door —for I saw Mrs. Joris come out of it. She came out just as I got there, and she began to walk toward Sixth Avenue. She didn't see me. She walked like she was in a hurry." "WeU 1 as Martin stopped for a breath. "Well, sir, I couldn't follow her think she's as afraid as you are. . afraid for her safety.

"But there was no rodeo this afternoon." | "She didn't so in the bowl, sir. i She went to the doors on Forty- ninth Street, where the offices are, and where you go downstairs to the stables. Just like a flash she went downstairs. Nobody stopped her. "But they stopped me. They said I'd have to have a permit. They were husky' fellers, standing around the entrance, cowboys and such. They told me to go to the office and get a permit. "T was afraid to leave the door.

I waited in a door across the street. And | ' after nbout an hour she came, upstairs alone. Alone and safe, thank God." "What was this man like?" asked Dirk. "This man she went with." '•Dark and heavy-set, black mustache, chewing a cigar. I asked one of the cowboys who he was, and they said his name was Jones." Dirk thought instantly of Torro- bin. Martins description of Jones had been unmistakable. "How did she treat this man?" he asked. "Not any way, sir. She hardly looked at him. He just turned around and went down the stair with her." . "She didn't seem afraid?" "Not of him. Sho's never seemed afraid of anything, except being followed, I've noticed that." Rupert and Hope may liuve an unnerving' scene, tomorrow.
