THE PAMPA iJAILir NEWS, t»fttnpa,-Te*a* Would Restrict Large Benefit Sums in Bil WASHINGTON, June 3 t/n— Senate agriculture committee todaj approved an amendment to the soi conservation act to restrict largi benefit payments. The committee authorized a sub committee to report the amendmen to the Senate floor after receipts u a letter from Secretary Wallace recommending restrictions on large benefit payments. Wallace's suggestion was similar to a recommendation yesterday by Presiden Roosevelt. The amendment was included bj the subcommittee in a bill by Senator Hatch (D.. N.M.) to extend the soil conservation act to the public domain. It would make possible benefit payments for soil conservation agreements in connection with grazing of sheep and cattle on the public domain. The graduated rate of benefit payments approved by the subcommittee would reduce benefits by one per cent on payments from $2,000 to $3,000; decreasing nn additional one per cent for each $1,000 up to $51.000 with a 50 per cent cut in payments above that.

He acted as official starter for the two races. Ships were on the field from Wichita, Kan., Oklahoma City, Ckla., Lubbock, Electra. Maneum, Okla., Hereford, Dallas, and Pampa. Two beautiful modeled Kinner monoplanes were flown here by Jerry Sass and L. T. Dutcher of Oklahoma City. A Great Lakes trainer was the contribution of W. c. Brccdlove of Lubbock. Three Spartans, two OX 5's, two Com- andairs. two Curtis-Robbins and other ships added to the interest of the occasion. Miles won the $25 prize for the ship coming the longest distance. He also took a first in the open race, lapping one entry in the event. The race was over 28 miles, including the turn, and Miles coasted the distance in a little over 11 minutes. Miles won first in the bomb dropping contest, missing the circle by 13 feet. The shirt-tail race also went to Miles with an elapsed time of 5 minutes 58 seconds. L. T. Dutcher of Oklahoma City, "lying a Kinner monoplane, placed first in the limited race, making ;he distance in 14 minutes 48 seconds. He took the soot landing, nissing the circle by only 7 feet. Gcoigo Christopher, local pilot, flying his own Commandair bi- jlanp. placed second in the bomb trapping, spot landing and shirttail wee. Ray Shifflct of Mangum, Okla., lying M. B. David's Spartan bi- jlane, was second in the open race iml third in the spot landing. Frank Shaw, local pilot, also fly- ng M. B.

Whether all counties with population of less than 75,000 came within the classification, or only those with 'population of not less than' 35,000 and not more than 100,000 and containing a city of more than 29,000 population," was not immediately clear. The decision was in the case of H. G. Hamrick, Potter county auditor, against Hattle Dell Simpler, juvenile officer. (Continued From Page 1) officers. Beach's congress would number 343 Senators and a like number of directors—all of them ministers. Besides his political aspirations, Beach has inventive ability. He has developed a wheel rimmsd with hard rubber and braced with spring .spokes, which lie says will save the nation's highways. .*». BILL KEPOKTKD FAVORABLY WASHINGTON, June 3 (AP) — The Wagner bill to authorize a long-term low-cost housing program in conjunction with local authorities was reported favorably to the senate today by its labor committee. The bill would create a housing authority, authorize an initial appropriation of $10,000,000 and empower the authority to borrow up to $150,000,000 for each of the next three fiscal years.

DETROIT, June 3. (/P)—Dayton Dean, who confessed he fired the shots that killed Charles A. Poole, WPA worker, and thus unwittingly exposed the existence of the Black Legion, took the stand over the ob- lections cf his counsel of the examination of himself and 12 others today on murder charges and said a "one way ride" was pre-arranged for Poole. Dean said Harvey Davis, a "colonel" in the black' hooded organization, told him: "It will be best to hang him, (Poole)." Dean, his face haggard and his eyes averted, told of the meeting of the Black Legion members at which the "punishment" of Poole was decided upon. Immediately after taking the stand Dean was silent for a moment, and the court asked him if he wanted Prosecutor Duncan C. McCren to question him. Nodding, Dean said under questioning: "Davis told me Poole had broken his wife's ribs and blacked her eyes. He said there would be a meeting that night and told me to be there. He said we would take Poole out." (Continued From Page 1) (Continued From Page 1) (Continued From Page 1) she nervously entered the hospital, a bouquet of roses in her hand. Attaches said the representative reeled his wife with "atta, girl!" as she walked down the corridor. Then he embraced her. On her next visit to the institution, Mrs. Zioncheck brought her husband a box of cookies. Attendants said Mrs. Zioncheck's visit appeared to have greatly cheered the congressman. "He seems to be resting better," commented Dr. Edgar A. Bocock, superintendent of the hospital. "He is still cooperating with us." While the congressman underwent the mental tests, news dispatches said a chain letter movement intended to induce him to resign was under way in Washington state. Residents in Seattle—his home town—said they received postcards reading—"Keep this chain unbroken. Please mail one to Congressman Marion Zioncheck asking him to resign. Then mail five cards *o five of your friends within the state, asking them to do likewise. Do not fail." Bystanders outside the building in which Zioncheck is being treated said that when his bride first visited him they overheard him discussing the question of resignation. "Who me?" they said he laughingly inquired of his wife. "Never, luc people elected me." 6 (Continued From Page 1) mother and aunt were employed there." Asserting that Cody—then 12, ran away from his mother and .aunt in 1864, the letter added that ha joined Libert's train of wagons nnd went to penver. "A sensitive boy," continued Johnson, "Bill was teased by the drivers and finally appealed to Boss Libert who protected him." Hearing of her son's difficulties with the drivers Mrs. Cody appealed to Libert to bring the boy home, Johnson wrote, and the freighter obliged. "These facts," said Johnson, "are as cold as steel and as accurate as a gun barrel." Admitting that encyclopedias give Cody's birth at 1846, Johnson challenged their accuracy. "My dear sir," he wrote the congressman, "how big a percentage of the dates about big men have not been faintly doctored?" CONFEDERATE DIES GALVESTON, June 3. (/P)— Capt. Joseph Archibald Robertson, 95- year old confederate hero and the last surviving member of the original directorate of ths Galveston Cotton Exchange, died at his home here late yesterday. He commanded the Alabama regiment of the Confederate army during the civil war and fought with gallantry at Getty burg with Gen. Robert E. Lee. Later he became a prominent cotton factor here. For a time he was president of the board of trustees of the Galveston orphans home. «». Check Missing Pampa Motor company this morning reported that a check for $58 made cut to Dan Carter and signed by Cree and Hoover had been lost or stolen. The check was dated June 1, 1936. The check number was 5504. Lubbock Mayor Here Ross Edwards, mayor of Lubbock, arrived yesterday to attend the Centennial. He flew here with Clint Breedlove, manager of the Lubbock mlunlclpal airport. parade will be a main attraction, the pageant will be repeated, more rodeo stunts will be viewed, and a Centennial ball will be on the program. Midway Popular. Most popular of the fairground attractions last night, other than the Scout cavalcade, were the rides on the locally operated midway. The merry-go-round, Ferris wheel, and other devices were well filled through the evening. Refreshments were offered by many booths, a number of games were in operation, and freaks were assembled to satisfy the curious. A bi-sexual calf and a monkey-dog were in one tent. Lighting, not quite completed yesterday, will be more brilliant tonight. Many Pioneers Sturdy. As usual in Pampa celebrations, the measured tread of pioneers testified to the march of rigorous years, while the hurrying feet of youths rushed by in the frantic search to see all that was offered. But in the "aces of the pioneers—faces deeply furrowed, weather worn, character revealing—was the same eagerness seen in that of the young. And during a lengthy day, it could be assumed that hundreds of these pio- leers would sec as much, greet as many friends, and enjoy the program as much as any youngster bounding about on springy legs. Costumes Arc Gay. What the charros or national costume is to Mexico is the glorified cowboy outfit of West Texas— big lat, boots, in some instances chaps, gay scarf, and a spirit of bravado ong associated witli men of the •ange come to town. Moreover, while the State of Texas as a whole celebrates one hundred •ears of development and counts its icroes among those now dead many •ears, the Panhandle enjoys the presence of many an oldtimer who Irtually saw plains civilization begin. Many a keen eye now viewing rodeos, pageants, and parades once iaw the Indian in his native habi- at, the buffalo, the mustang, the intclope. Many a pioneer woman icre today knew what it was to be onely, when loneliness meant sepa- ation from other women for weeks or months, many miles, and the absence of the menfolk for days. -In sickness and in health, many of those here for the celebration carried on, tempting other settlers to come to the plains where land was cheap and opportunity for independence beckoned. Those who loved independence more than lite in tho old states came to the plains — adventurous spirits, bold with that "sustained courage" which is the theme of this celebration. Never Lacked Leaders. Nothing is quite so certain, in such a celebration, as the fact that the oldtimers will have a great time, well able to manage their own program. Their desires are'well known, leadership is never lacking, first rate stories are crying for the telling, and there are no strangers among them. Beneath the gaity of the pioneer roundup, however, is the certainty that many here this year will not return next year. Shoulders now straight will be bowed within a twelvemonth, not a few old settlers will pass on to the Great Frontier. Many a pioneer who formerly came with a husband or wife is alone this year. Fittingly, therefore, this celebration is honoring the widows of pioneers—women who ordinarily receive little attention after the husband passes. Parades tomorrow and Friday will honor these widows. Equipment Shown Oil field equipment, sleek new automobiles, a 1917 Dodge, and several elegantly prepared floats were joined 'by horsemen in the parade this morning. Most elaborate of the entries was that of the Shell Petroleum company. This one, mounted on a truck, was a replica—true to scale —of a Shell lease. It had three wells, tanks, house and a small Shell truck well loaded. Bill Adams .and Pete Cooper worked four months on the models, according to Jack Steam, superintendent, joined by Mr. Stcarn and many other employes at intervals. One well was a pumper, with regulation derrick, well house, tank assembly, move-able parts, and a tube showing actual movement of oil. Its engine was powered by air pressure. A second pumping well without derrick featured a small model of a pumping jack, this one operated by electric motor. Can Vis Hole The drilling well, with derrick and all equipment true in scale and design, actually put down a hole 25 fent deep in tests. The models were mounted on concrete and painted with aluminum paint. The replica of a Shell • camp cottage was bright in colors, with a woman sitting on the front porch. Children were playing- about, and chickens were in the yard. The old Drake well, drilled in 1859, was entered by the Texas company. J. C. Dollard, in silk hat and long-tailed coat, took the part of Col. Drake. His flowing beard gave a realistic appearance. A beautiful float done in white crepe paper and featuring the famed flying hourse emblem was entered by the Magnolia Petroleum company. On this float were several uniformed members of the Pewee ball club, while atop of it, like a small princess, was little Miss Elizabeth Ann McGowan. The parade was led by the smartly uniformed high school band from Clarendon. Helics Judged Col. R. P. Smithe of Plainview, Mrs. Olive .K. Dlxon of Amarillo, and Dr. L. F. Sheffy of Canyon, judges of the old relics contest have reached a decision on the old relics. These relics were judged by their relation to Panhandle History, and their uniqueness. The winners of first, second and third place will be announced at the pageant, "El Dorado", at the Recreation park tomorrow night a( 8:15. Col. Smithe, Mrs. Dlxon, and br. Sheffy stated that they really enjoyed having the opportunity o judging these old relics, which are on display in local show windows as it gave them a chance to meet many of their old freinds and renew old acquaintanceships. AH 1928 and older model cars that plan to enter the relics auto race to be held at 2:00 p. m., June 4, at Recreation park, should make immediate plans to enter, say? Frank Culberson, chairman of the relics race. Entries are to register at the Culberson-Smalling Chevrolet company, the Pampa Motor company, Tom Rose (Ford) Motor company, or the B. C. D. office An entrance of $2.50 per car will be charged. Final entry date is 9 a. m., June 4th. .*». !MAH<LT NEW YORK, June 3. (/P)—The stock market hart a weather eye cut for squalls today and, as a result, made little or no headway. A fresh outbreak of labor disturbances in France, together with doubts regarding the outcome of the senate tax controversy, were said to have kept many traders on the fence. The close was Irregular. Transfers were around 600,000 shares.

'Shot from in front," was the message investigators found scribbled on a crumpled cigaret paper. The small sh'eot of pafper was weighted down by the dead man's key ring on the running board of his car near where his body was found late last night by two OCO Workers. The two youths had been assisting the forestry officer in investigating what Supt. A. L. Nelson at Hot Springs said was an incendiary fire. The youths told officers they had not seen Bethel since about 4 p. m. when he had been engaged in trail- Ing one or more persons he suspected of setting fire to a tract of government timber Monday.
