"In announcing for re-election as attorney general," he said, "I ask merely to finish a job at the command of the people and for an opportunity to continue to offer a helping hand. "We in this country cannot stand still; we go forward or backward, and under the leadership of our farseeing president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, we must go forward. We are on our way . . . "The attorney general's department is gratified in having some part in restoring confidence, with the help of members of the legislature and other vitally interested citizens." McOr'aw said that one of the major accomplishments of the departments in its work in the East Texas oil field. "There is no longer, insofar as lenfofcement of the conservation laws in the courts is concerned, the hot oil problem in that field," he said. "The hot oil confiscation law alone has brought in around a million dollars to alleviate the burden of the taxpayers." He stated that the department had collected more than $2,500,000 from various sources, thereby saving taxpayers that amount, that three Important cases had been won before the United States supreme court giving the state clear titles to property worth millions of dollars, and the land desk had recovered a half million dollars in bonus and rentals on school lands.

Taxicab Strike In Dallas Ends PALLAS, June 1. W)^-Taxicabs rolled over Dallas streets again today after a.five-day strike. Completely tying up traffic of its kind in the city, the drivers had peacefully but firmly demanded a one-thlrd cut in all receipts from fares. Although when a settlement was reached yesterday, the strikers agreed to return to their machines under the old rate of one-fourth, they felt that until an arbitration board could hear their case they had won a major point. They forced concession from operators of withdrawal of 125 cabs from service. Drivers believed they could thus make more trips and consequently increase their wages. Efforts of J. S. Myers, conciliator for the department of labor, and P. E. Nichols, state labor commissioner, were credited with obtaining the agreement, to submit the dispute to «n. arbitration board, from which a decision was expected within two weeks. :'..' : «•*• : MISSIONS REPRODUCED -..PALLAS, June I.—Replicas of two of the most famous missions o: th&.

TWENTY-SIXTH SUMMER SESSION IS OPENING AT CANYON TODAY QUEBEC, Que., June 1. (fP)—Af- ter using an airplane, a warrant and a ships searching party in a vain attempt to find Ann Harding, his former wife, Harry Bannister reluctantly recessed the international chase Saturday. The actress' ex-husband, failing to reach Quebec before Miss Harding and their seven-year-old daughter, Jan, had embarked for England, first swore out a warrant charging the film star with abducting the child. Then, with a constable wondering what to do with the warrant Bannister searched the S. S. Em- jress of Australia as it was about I ;o sail for England. That was the ship on which Miss Harding first had made reserva- ;ions, and Bannister refused for a ;ime to believe she already had left, 16 hours earlier, on another ship. However, the tall pursuer, beret in hand, peered about the suites Miss Harding had engaged and found only a bouquet of flowers. _ ^ GILJJOHE IS ELECTED CANYON, June 1— Supt.

BY A. E. STUNT/, Associated Press Staff Writer. ROME. June 1 (/P)—All Ethiopia was divided into five parts today by Benito Mussolini, creator of the new Roman empire. His cabinet approved a project by which each part becomes an administrative division. They are: Eritrea—Capital, Asmara; Amhara—Capital, Gondar; Galla and Sidamo—-Capital, Jimma; Harar—Capital, Harar; Somallland—Capital, Mogadiscio. The cabinet announced each division represented a homogeneous organism "ethnically, geographically, historically, and politically." Addis Ababa was named the capital for the new administrative organization of Ethiopia with a viceroy in charge, aided by a vice governor-general and the chief of the general staff, the latter handling military matters. Planking this central government, the cabinet ordered two consultative bodies set up—a governor's council presided over by the vlcerov and composed of the highest officials In Italian East Africa, and a general "consulta." formed of resident citizens chosen by the viceroy from established merchants and industrialists and six chiefs and notables chosen among East African subjects. The cabinet declared "the greatest guarantees" for the Mohammedan religion. At the same time the Coptic Christian church was made the object of explicit regulations because of its connection with the Coptic churches of Egypt. These regulations, however, were not announced immediately. It is stated, however, that the Coptic church of Ethiopia now Is reunited with the patriarchal sec of Alexandra and the Egyptian Coptic church. Traditionally, Alexandria was the mother church of the Coptic sect to which Ethiopian bishops held ec- clcstlastical allegiance. In recent years the connection has been broken off and the Coptic church nationalized. The cabinet's move was believed in diplomatic circles to be a gesture toward Egypt as an effective means of linking Ethiopia and Egypt in at least sentimental bonds. A cabinet communique said the accord was reached with the Coptic hierarchy of Ethiopia "so that the greatest development may be given the religious institutions of the Christian lands of Italian East Africa and so that the bonds which unite the religious population of Zionchecks Headed for Home True to his flare for doing the unexpected, Marion A. Zioncheck, Washington congressman, made a bicycle built for one render service for two in a hectic honeymoon hegira through Caribbean islands. He and the vivacious missus, arriving at New York on the way to Washington, D. C., show how they pedalled along honey- noon lane. Ethiopia with the Coptic church of Egypt shall bo given cultural effect." Italy prepared a display of potential force today to backstop her annexation of Ethiopia before the League of Nations. Premier Mussolini decided to send more than 1,000,000 soldiers In. a test mobilization to the northern frontier, reliable sources asserted, at the same time the league council resumes on June 16 its discussion of the ItiUo-Ethiopian war. The exhibition is intended to prove the fascist nation stands behind the declaration of its dictator Ethiopia will not be relinquished— even at the cost of a European war. Nearly all of the available army of 1,200,000 will participate in the manuevcrs, . it was reported, while part of reserve manpower, estimated at 6,800,000, may also be included. .«.

June 1 (AP) — The Black Legion was described by investigators tonight as a group of loosely-federated night riding bands operating in several states without central discipline or common ptir- pose beyond the enforcement by lash and pistol of individual leaders' notions of "Americanism." Although federal assistance in de- , termlnlng the extent of the hooded order still is sought, some officials here declared they were convicted the organization's claim of a national membership of 6,000,000 is a • grandiose dream. That dream, they say, ana with it the nebulous schemes for a super government based on brutality and terrorism, was blasted irreti ievably by the volley of bullets with performing the "ritual execution" of Charles A. Poole "because he knew too much." "The Black Legion in Michigan is doomed," an investigator for Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea said day. "Publicity on its brutalities has made Its members run to cover, and I don't think there will be any new ones wanting to join now that they know that much of the Black Legion's terrorism Is directed against' its own members. The charges by Michigan state police that the Black Legion is made up largely of former klansmen who rebelled at that organization's curb on their plans for terroristic "straightening out parties," was partially confirmed here Friday by J. A. Calescott, regional officer of the Ku Klux Klan. "Some Black Legion members formerly were klansmen," he said, "but they were ousted from thn Klan when their legion affiliations became known. We do not countenance terrorism." J j • 0^eczema,rashes,chafing, Iryness-quicklycheckedarid —^healing promoted uiith— Resmol M. P.

There you will find the products and services of firms who are glad to place their goods on display where the greatest number of people can find out in the shortest possible time whether those goods are worthy or not. True, sometimes you can find good values off the highway — among the "unknowns" and the u ;just-as- goods." But why take the risk—when you can use the advertisements as a dependable guide to value, and save a lot of time in the bargain? When a manufacturer places himself co record in the printed page, he is forced to.guarantee you consistent quality and service—or the disapproval of millions quickly forces him out of the market. That's why you have such a friendly feeling for old and well- known advertised names—you know you can depend upon them.
