S. infantry, of which he was a member- at the native village of the Province of Ilocas Norto on the northern end cf the Island of Luzan. "Att'ei 33 years in the army, Mr. Harrington was retired in the summer of 1901. At the time of his retirement, hs had more medals of horior'and certificates of merit voted him by: Congress than any other enlisted' man in-the army at that time." Jury Selection Is Difficult in Pastor's Trial HOUSTON, June 2 I/P)— The Rev.

Alice Lbngworth Nominee The Texas Panhandle's four- day Centennial celebration Is under way! Texas' Centennial governor, Jame V. Allred, arrived early this morn ing and, at 11 a. m., gave the of ficial opening address from th theater marquee where his talk wa broadcast- by KPDN, the Pampa ,Dally NEWS station. "I'm glad-you are not mad at me for coming to see you/I he remarke in referring to some public criticism of his extensive travels. He said 1 wasn't fair to be criticized both in his home and "abroad," adding tha he conceived it his duty, as the Cen tdnnial governor to boost the ceiv tral exposition and as many of the 250 other celebrations as his time would permit. / Next To Childress After his speech, the governo: donned what he described as "spon 'model cowboy" garb and rode li the Boy Scout parade, then attended a small luncheon in his honoi at the Schneider hotel before flying to Childress to dedicate a new highway department building. Showing much familiarity with the "sustained courage" theme of the local celebration, the governor congratulated this territory on "doing up brown" its Centennia observance. He recalled the two prc-Centennials and the influence they had in popularizing the statewide movement. . • Governor Allred described the triumphs of the recent tour of the Centennial train, told of the millions of dollars being spent at the central exposition, and urged Texans to "sell" the Texas spirit of progressiveness as well as more material things. Millions are coming to Texas, he said, because Texas has captured the Interest of the nation. Quotes From Memory The governor recited verse al length in praise of the passing cowman and the cow horse. He acknowledged the gift of a Boy Scout plaque carrying the Scout oath, and paid a tribute to Scouting for building clean boys who are law abiding. The greatest asset of Texas, he said, is its boys and girls. While the governor spoke, airplanes roared overhead as they ar< rived for the races and stunts scheduled for this afternoon. ,^~-'" Welcome Extended Governor Allred was eloquently ntroduced by Judge Newton P. Willis, local attorney and member of a pioneer family which has produced many a prominent lawyer and .district attorney. Judge Willis was presented by R. G. Hughes, general chairman of the celebration, who extended a well-worded welcome to the people who filled the block in front of the theater. Gilmore N. Nunn, official host to the [overnor, was master of ceremonies. 3ol. H. Otto Studer of Pampa, nember of the governor's staff, at- ended him in full uniform. Seated on the marquee was Mrs. Temple Houston, widow of the son f General Sam Houston, and Mrs. V. E. Fatheree of Pampa, her hos- ess during the celebration.

Vaught or- ered a mistrial today in the prose- ution of Carl Giles, former Oklahoma federal relief administrator nd three others charged with con- piracy, because, he said, his own rticism in court yesterday of new eal spending was "unjustified and irejudioial." The sensational finish to the week- ong trial occurred after the veteran urist interrupted testimony to crit- oize federal relief spending, term- ng it "reckless and careless." Judge 1 Vaught ordered dismissed he jury which had heard testimony or and against Giles, Ray Isorii, ormer FERA clerk, and William Bigler and Dan Hoover, Oklahoma- ity livestock dealers. The government had charged con- piracy in mule purchases by Giles or rural rehabilitation work while Giles was administrator in January, 935. Here Today J. W. McCormick, senior captain of the Texas Rangers, was an honor guest of the Adobe Walls Boy Scout council today, and will lead the grand entry of the Cavalcade of Scouting which will begin at 8:15 o'clock tonight at fairground park. He accompanied Gov. James V. Allred to Pampa. SCHWARZKOPF IS OUSTED BY GOV._HOFFMAN Dismissal of Kidnap Hunt Leader Is Protested TRENTON, N. J., June 2 (/!>)— Governor Harold G. Hoffman capped his criticism of the Lindbergh kidnap-murder investigation today by deposing Col.. H. Norman Schwarzkopf as superintendent of the New Jersey police—a force he organized and led for 15 years. The governor sent to the Senate the name of Col. Mark O. Kimberling, state prison warden and once Schwarzkopf's deputy. Kimberling was named to succeed the man who directed the police search which ended in the arrest, conviction, and execution of Bruno Richard Hauptmann as the Lindbergh baby slayer. Kimberling supervised the execution. Some observers believed strong sentiment in the state for Schwarzkopf's reappolntment—evidenced by petitions from farm groups and women's clubs, and individual demands by private citizens—would ead to a Senate fight against Klm- jerling's confirmation. Administration-supporting Senators and the governor's own associates were confident, however, Kimberling would be confirmed. They said the governor had been assured of the necessary 11 votes before : orwarding the appointment. Opposition was expected from members of the democratic minority, nd from a few anti-administration republicans. Whether they were itrong enough to prevent confirma- ion was uncertain. South China Rebels Demanding Order For War On Japan LOCAL PIONEERS AND BPW CLUB GREET VISITORS Sank Car Loses $50,000 in Quick Downtown Holdup NEW YORK, June 2.

Collision of Car And Truck Fatal MINERAL WELLS. June 2 (#>)— tanley B. Whitson, 23, of stanton, was killed near here last night when tie car he was driving and a cattle i-uck collided. Ollie McComb of Rotan, driver of ne truck, was 1 slightly injured. Miss lOuise Whitson, who was riding with ,er brother, suffered an eye Injury. Whitson. was driving his sister to Denton where she was attending 0. LA. A heavy registration of pioneers, old-timers, and visitors from many points ;n the panhandle of Texas and from distant states before the close of the first half- day of the Panhandle Centennial celebration indicated an even wider interest, and larger attendance than the optimistic anticipa- ticn of the Pampa citizens and committees that have prepared the four days of entertainment of the third of the city's centennial observances. At the high school gymnasium where pioneer men and women and the Business and Professional Women's club joined forces to welcome and register the local and visiting pioneers in whose honor the celebration was in a large part planned, 235 persons had been listed on the registered and 310 wives and widows-had..been .registered -irt the special book reserved for them. From the latter list will be chosen the queen of the Centennial. Dates of arrival in the Panhandle of Texas are being recorded with the names on both lists. In point of residence the oldest pioneer listed at noon was Mrs. T. J. Mclntyre of White Deer, who first came to the Panhandle in 1877. Pioneers of 40 years ago or more are being given white badges; old- timers who have been in the section from 25 to 40 years are -receiving blue. Among the towns represented by visitsis are the following: Mobeetie, Groom, White Deer, AmarlUo, Alanreed, Skellytown, Stratford, Miami, Spearman, Canadian, Dalhart, Tulsa, Okla., Dacoma, Okla., Hays, Kan., San Jose, Calif., and Woodward, Okla. Pampa's older citizens are following, for the most part, the custom of the last two years in registering as early as convenient. A heavy registration is expected this afternoon. Mrs. Temple Houston, widow of the brilliant son of General Sam Houston, Texas hero, arrived last night, having been brought from Woodward by Earl Powell, local jeweler. She will be the guest of Mrs. V. E. Fatheree for several days. She spent last night with Mr. and Mrs. Powell. Mrs. Houston has lived in Woodward 42 years. She was married to Temple Houston in Brazoria county when he was 21 years of age and she had just finished school in New Orleans. They moved to Mobeetie, where at the age of 30 he had become district attorney of the huge Panhandle area, of which Mobeetie was the seat of judicial affairs.

This manifesto announced Japan ese aggression in North China and (demanded an Immediate declara tion of war against Japan on thi part of the national government a Nanking. In this latter announcement, the Japanese reiterated that Canton had declared war against Nanking The Japanese said a proclamation announcing the establishment of an Independent government at Canton was imminent. The South China provinces con cerned are Kwangtung and Kwang si. Recent indications from Soutl China have been that the Chinese in • that area—long politically op posed to the Nanking government— sought military opposition to thi continued infiltration of Japane-si from Formosa. The southern Chinese, particular' ly the students, passed resolutions asking that Nanking take steps to block the Increased Japanese mill tary advance in North China, as represented in recent days for the reinforcing of Japanese army garrisons In many North China cities Chou Lou, chancellor of the National University of Canton anc member of the South China political council, left for Europe May 28, ostensibly to attend the Heidelberg university celebration. Politica observers, however, saw a deeper significance to his departure, for he was the principal anti-Nanking spokesman in Canton.

(/Pj—The congressional inquiry into Townsend old age pension the plan moved toward a conclusion today after disclosures of dissension among the Townsend high command and indications of decreasing revenues. An immediate reorganization of the Townsend set-up was declared necessary by three of the four witnesses who assailed the existing leadership yesterday and praised the work of the investigating committee. Most critical was Frank L. McWade, until recently Townsend manager for the Rochester, N. Y., area. He asserted the movement "is in the hands of racketeers." The Rev. Alfred J. Wright of Cleveland, member of the board of directors, and Frank M. Hawks, recently resigned Massachusetts state area manager, joined McWade in criticizing the present leadership as having lost sight of the original purpose of the movement.

Three members of the Plainview team have either played or officiated here when El Rojo played the local foursome. The "riding fool," Button Stephenson will accompany the Blues here and play the No. 4 position. Bub Crenshaw will be' here, playing at the No. 2 post. At No. 1 will be Wheeler, veteran Blues player. Phillips will round out the team, playing at No. 3. Dr. M. C. Overton, captain of the Pampa team, will "call signals" from the No. 2 position. At No. 1 will be either Wiley Reynolds, Bill Harwell or H. Otto Studer. Hub Burrows will go to No. 3 and Jack Cooper will be at his old No. 4 post. The locals have been practicing long and hard recently. Team play has been stressed. In the past, the players have been guilty of crowding and missing golden opportunities for scores. Recent rains have improved the playing field. It Is now a carpet of green instead of barren dust bowl, which will enable players to hit the ball more consistently.
