TJittttSDAY EVENING, JUNE 4, 1936. THE I»AMPA DAILY NEWS, £ampa, Texas STRIKE IN ONLY MONUMENT IN SOUTH TO UNION TROOPS IS IN TEXAS SOCIALISTS MOVE TO ASSUME CHARGE OF GOVERNMENT BY EDWARD KENNEDY. (CopyrlKht, 1930, By The Ansncintcd Press) PARIS, June 4.—Employers at the Paris central markets yielded to the demands of workers today, apparently averting a threatened food shortage just as the socialist, Leon Blum, rtioved to assume the government of France. Even as the Workers gained their demands, housewives in various sections of Paris reported laying, in heavier supplies of food for fear the source would be cut off. Striking ice and refrigerator plant workers, whose walkout had imperiled Paris meat and milk store.';, settled their dispute with operators, further allaying fears of a metropolitan famine. However, the strikes spread to other branches of industry, affecting newspapers, and there were estimates that 400,000 workers still were in a status of "folded arms." Afternoon newspapers were kept off the streets by pickets. Only about 10 morning papers, or less than half the total number, appeared on news stands. Laborer's building air raid shelters at police headquarters quit and tried to s'tay in the shelters, but police routed them summarily. A statement by the Bank of Franco showed heavy withdrawals of gold for the tenth consecutive week. During the week ending May 29, gold valued at 438,000,000 francs ($29,054,293) was withdrawn from the bank's vaults, leaving the reserve at 57,021,900,000 francs ($3,182,431,000), The withdrawals lowered the percentage of gold coverage on bank notes to 61.01 per cent from 62.37 per cent iri the previous week. The bank's' increasingly heavy support of the national treasury was sh'own In the fact that discounts rose to a value of 19,288,000,000 francs ($1,279,450,000) as compared to the May 24, 1935, discount report of 4,794,000,000 francs ($318,005,000). A flight of capital into British pounds was reported by bankers. Sterling hit one of the highest quo- tatiohs in many months. At noon, the pound was quoted at 76,50 francs, as compared to 75.80 a week ago. Bankers said the intervention of the British equalization fund had been curtailed to conserve funds, since the burden of large' franc sales had threatened to overburden it. (The franc also slumped at Louden, carrying the American dollar down with it.) As the soft-sp9ken Blum made ready to diagnose the nation's labor and financial ills, the right wing of the chamber of deputies united on a policy of outright obstruction to His leftist government. This policy was decided upon after the dominant people's front had refused the rightists pro rata representation among chamber officials. The rightists declared they would oppose every government bill. Dancer Shoots Beautiful Blond And Then Himself PHOENIX, Ariz., June 4. UP)— Irving La Zarr,' said to be a former members of Sally .Rand's troup, shpt and killed .Donjm Park of Los Angeles, beautiful blond dancer here • today and then killed himself with the same gun. Nat McKee, justice of the peace, said it was murder-suicide and an inquest was unlikely. There was no hint of why La Zarr, known as a close friend of the girl, had taken his sudden desperate action. .Both..fell from steamer chairs in which they had been sitting and conversing. The girl had resided at the dwelling three weeks, coming here from the Los Angeles home of her mother, Mrs. Elizabeth L. Park. La Zarr, shown by letters in his possession to have been a longstanding acquaintance of the girl, arrived in phoenix last night. Persons at the rooming house said there was no evidence of quarreling us the two talked. ^ .TONES PUSHES BILL WASHINGTON, June 3 (AP)— Legislation bringing grain, cotton i and other commodity futures exchanges under more rigid government regulation with a particulai view to curbing speculative trading was sent to the White House today by the house.

COMFORT, June 2. (/P)—Tucked away in the village of Comfort, deep in southwest Texas, is the only monument erected to the memory of Union soldiers south of the Mason-Dixon line. Beneath the granite shaft imbedded on a hillside rest the bodies of a band of early German settlers —massacred because of an amazing sincerity to their oath of allegiance to the United States. Valor and scorn fills the story of the deaths. The German band, loyal to the government, was shot down by Confederate guns as they tried to make their way into Mexico to escape conscription into the forces of the Grey. On July 4, 1862, the loyalists from Glllesple, Kerr, Kendall, Edwards and K'imble counties, met and Three companies were organized Into a batalllon under the -leadership of Major Fritz Tegener. An advisory board was formed and battalion 6f- ficers met with it and outlined a plan of action. Some slipped away, 'journeyed to New Orleans and joined Union forces. Others remained and July 20, 1862, the Loyal leaguers were notified the counties of Gillespie. Kerr, Kendall, Kimble and Edwards were considered to be in open rebellion to the Confederacy. They were placed under martial law. Soon after the league decided to disband to show Confederate leaders no armed conflict was Intended. Maj. Tegener passed word that all who wished to try to flee to Mexico with him were to meet on formed the "Union Loyal league." the banks of Turtle creek Aug. Siity five German settlers, stub- bjoVhly true to ftieir oath, met; fclin there 1 and started by horseback for tlilf ftJo Grande. The Hint rock trail wearied their mounts and on the night of Aug. 9 they halted for a two-day rest along the banks of the Nueces river. Guards were thrown about the camp and worn members of the group fell asleep. Shortly before dawn a shot rang out and the loyalists found their guard, Leopold Bauer, shot to death. As they hurried about the camp more shots were fired. Loyalists fought back and dawn found 19 of them killed; nine captured (and later executed), and the remainder in flight. Six of the escapees were later killed as they reached their goal— the Rio Grande. Eleven joined the United States army as members of the first regiment of the Texas cavalry volunteers and the remainder escaped to their homes and California. Three years later, after war drums had ceased, a group 6f Germans *ent to the massacre scene, gathered up the bones of their com- ra ; des, returned here and buried tritm with ceremonies in the present resting spot. .Many years later relatives and friends erected the monument— consecrated to a band courageous in their beliefs. Inscribed on the shafts are the names of the dead and the words: "Treue der union (true to the union)." Historians and relatives have handed down facts of the strange rebellion and it is a favorite tale of this hill country. SESSIONS POSTPONED PARIS, June 4. (fp)— Great Britain and France agreed today to support postponement of sessions of the League of Nations council and assembly until the end of June, diplomatic sources reported. The delay would allow representatives of the two nations to attempt to formulate proposals for settlement of Italy's annexation of Ethiopia, these sources asserted. STRENGTH OF KANSAN CAUSES LOTS OF GUESSING CLEVELAND, June 4. (#)—Guessing Governor Landon's strength in the race for the republican presidential nomination was the big game today in the hotels here. How many votes would the Kansan get on the first ballot at the natSonal convention next week? How many on the second; if he didn't get the nomination by the third, would he get it at all? These were the questions that started o'ff nearly, every one of the pblltltiah-to- politician conversations—and there were hundreds of them. Was John Hamilton, Landon leader, conservative when he predicted that his chief would get moire than 300 on the first vote? Was David A. Reed, former United States senator from Pennsylvania, the same when he said a majority of his state's delegates favored Landon? or were both overestimating? While talk along this line went on, the national committee again went to work on contests for seats at the convention when it opens next Tuesday. The committee's decisions on contests affect only the temporary roll If contestants choose to carry their fights to the convention. The convention itself is the final judge of its membership. The' Louisiana fight between slates of 12 delegates each was scheduled for first consideration today. Each delegation .claHi(iS.,t6' have been regularly and, Mfcafiyi se* lected. " • Late yesterday the committee de"- cided to seat the Florida del^jHott headed by John F. Harris BfeMlin Beach. J. Leonard Lewis, Jacfe£n- ville negro and head of a ;<S6Vat8st- Ing delegation, said he would carry his fight to the convention. The committee also deoide'd to stoat William V. Pacelll of Chicago as the only delegate from the' e'lghth Illinois district. -*. The state population departmerit at Rio de Janoiro released 'figures showing that of 274,749 rural properties in Sao Paulo state, 33,590 are owned by' Italians, 14,810 by Spaniards and 13,945 by Jap'anese. $25.00 REWARD Will be paid by the manufacturer for any Corn GREAT CHRISTOPHER Corn Cure cannot remove.
