(^Pi- Congressional leaders today abandoned, all hope of adjourning Con- giess beffore the republican national convention in view of the death of Speaker Byrns. The senate, which had expected to pass the tax bill today in an effort to wind up the session Monday night, recessed immediately when it met at 10 a. m. (EST) out of respect to the speaker who died suddenly during the night. Leaders said they would still try to pass the bill tomorrow or Saturday In order to get the controversial measuvi 1 into conference, but that there was virtually no prospect for final action on it before the republican convention beginning Tuesday. They said that with the tax bill in conference, three day recesses would be taken during the convention, and that an effort would be made to complete action on the conference report and adjourn congress finally during the week between the republican and democratic conventions. Senator Robinson, of Arkansas. the Arkansas democratic leader, discounted forecasts that if Congress returned after the republican convention, the .session would last indefinitely to consider other legislation pressing for action. He said that as soon as the tax and relief bills were on the .statute books Congress would adjourn regardless of the status of other legislation. 1 (Continued From Page 1) Minute By Minute At Station KPDN (Continued From Page 1) FRIDAY MORNING 6:30—Sign On. 6:30—Uneeda Used Car Boys. 7:30—Waker Uppers, 8:30—Overnight News. 8:45—It's Your Own Fault. 9:00—Shopping With Sue. 9:15—Singer of Sacred Songs. 9:30—Better Vision. 9:35—Frigid Facts. 9:45—American Family Robinson. 10:00—Lost & Found Bureau. 10:05—Interlude. 10:10—Beautiful Lady In Blue. 10:15—Microphone News. 10:25—Golden Memories. 10:30—Mid-Morning News. 10:45—Fireside Thoughts. 10:50—The Old Gardener. 10:55—Texas Centennial. 11:15—Harvester Girl. 11:30—Emerson at Eagle. 12:00—On the Mall.

"I've skinned many a buffalo, and I've seen the ground black with hides and the animals shot by the hunters as far as the eye would reach,", she say. Not only did Mrs. Wood take a man's share in the skinning of the buffalo, but she Helped stake the hides and she prepared all her husband's ammunition, making 50 rounds each morning and 50 more in the afternoon. The life was bitterly hard at times, Mrs. Wood recalls, and the threat of Indian attack in Unit clay was almost constantly present. Like most of the pioneer men and women, however, Mrs. Wood recalls the compensations of adventure and freedom which the life offered. Fifty years after those great hunting days, Mrs. Wood is regretting the enormous waste of meat that took place and the wholesale killing of the buffalo which resulted too soon in their extinction. She says she deplored it then. "I said the country would suffer for such awful waste, and it has," she said In ^recounting the old times. , The Queen of the Centennial is 81' years old. She has lived at Lordsburg, N. M., now for many years, but has visited in Canadian, Mobeetie, and other points in the Panhandle frequently within the last few years. Friends began crowding about her at the round-up headquarters as soon as it was learned she had arrived, and a lively ex- Change of reminiscences was going on between her and her former neighbors. Mrs. Wood was to ride in a special float in the old-timers parade .and to be entertained as a guest of honor at the afternoon coffee with which the Pampa Business and Professional Women's club is giving today at the club room in the City Hall. George Black of Groom, who came to the Panhandle in 1873, was the oldest resident among men register- Ing at the pioneer roundup. He occupied a place of honor in the old- timers parade today, riding on the "pioneer family" float. Registration of pioneers neared the BOO mark today, as out-of-town visitors arrived in large numbers The largest attendance is expected tomorrow, when the barbecue wil be served at noon to all who have resided in tills country more than 25-' years. . Today there was fiddling anc; dancing at the high school gymnasium. The old fiddlers contests started at 2 o'clock; a dozen entries had been made by noon. The costume square dance will be tomorrow evening. FLUSH OUT 15 MILES OF KIDNEY TUBES .'

(/P)—Increasingly unfavorable crop reports regarding spring wheat did much today to bring about a decided hoist in prices for wheat futures everywhere. The tenor of the crop news was that consideiable permanent damage to spring wheat had unquestionably been done in many localities. One tentative -suggestion today was that instead of 236,000,000 bushels, the average of the latest official unofficial estimates of domestic spring crop production, it would be nearer correct to say 150,000,000 bushels.

In ny judgment, the Texas Cenlcii- ilal is u symbol denoting the ond of the depression in the Southwest. For this, your sister state owes you debt of gratitude. In New Mexico ve know that business has improved steadily. This year our iggest industry—tourist travel — vill increase by several millions of dollars over last year. This increase n tourist travel is a good index to general business conditions. The enerul morale of our people has ifted. Texas Contributions 'Texas has contributed much to lie nation in our dark days of depression. She has provided two ;reat senators, several outstanding ongressmen, a progressive and en- rgetic governor, and she has given o the nation that grand old Texan, lack Garner, a fitting help-mate or our great humanitarian Presi- lent, who, no doubt, has done more o dispel the gloom and lift the depression than any other person or •roup of persons. "Texas is a mammoth land, of nammolh resources, one-third larger than Germany. It could Imve fed ind sheltered the fighting- armies of Ihi! world war. Us annual pe- ;roleum output would float all thu ships of the warring nations. This Centennial is an epic story of one of the richest areas on the globe. . . The great story of Texas is be- ng told to the world adequately for the first time; its heroic his- xn-y will be made known to millions who will thrill to the stories of high courage of its heroes, of the Texas fight for independence, and ;he story of the development of its vast resources. "As l stand before you I see a vision. I see the magnificent pa- eant of the undying history of Texas. I see the great and lonely Houston, outnumbered, fighting a desperate losing battle against fearful odds and yet winning by sheer courage when all seemed lost. I see the intrepid Col. Travis and his brave band standing resolute, knowing that death is not far, yet not asking for quarter. I hear his ringing voice as he defies the enemy. At last comes the end. No man escapes death, but not one of them would live without liberty. Following this conies a picture of hardy pioneers, breaking trails, tilling the virgin soil, raising catlle, providing for posterity. I see the pioneer mother with her brood at her knee, braving perils that would turn lesser mortals pale. I see in the .ever-changing • picture the rigors and hardships of the frontier life, yet ever advancing, ever conquering. Dawn of New Day "Now comes the dawn of industry—oil, textiles, and kindred ventures; roads, schools, great cities, teeming commerce, each taking its toll of effort and self-sacrifice. But not in vain: The great State of Texas stands as an empire wrested from the wilderness, a monument to a fearless people, a pleasant home for ils children, a reward well paid. "Tomorrow this branch of Ihe Texas Centennial will be closed. Closed—yet it will still live in the heroic deeds of all Texas heroes and in the accomplishments of her people. Upon you is the burden of ever advancing, ever enhancing the good things bestowed upon you by a bountiful Providence and the efforts of your forefathers. " '*"' Mrs. G. W.

Hamilton of Amarillo spent yesterday in Pampa. Mrs. Joe Duby of LeFors was a Pampa visitor yesterday afternoon. barbecue at Road Runner park between 4 and 6 p. m. yesterday. The meal was made possible by oil field supply firms, whose executives and employes gave much time to the project. Walter Biery and Fred Cullum were general chairmen of the oil men's program, which closed with a well-attended dance at the Pla-Mor last night. There was virtually a holiday in the field. Tickets distributed with checks admitted oil workers to the barbecue. Hotel lob- boes were crowded all day. Last night hundreds attended a stag show at La Nora theater. Today a junk car race before the rodeo, a horse show at Road Runner park at 4:30 p. m., the mam- molh pageant at 8:15 p. m. at the new fairgrounds, and dances were on the program for oldtimers' day. Tomorrow will be the final day of the celebration, featuring a barbecue for oldtimers at noon at the gym, rodeo, horse show, final pageant, Centennial ball, and oldtimers' square dance. 'Sustained Courage.' Today's program brought the historical theme of the celebration, "Sustained Courage." forward emphatically. Floats prepared under the direction of Jim Collins' committee were specially attractive, and fittingly carried honored pioneers. Ranger Captain J. W. McCormick was the guest of honor at the Boy Scout barbecue held at the Adobe Walls council camp at the fairgrounds where approximately 175 out-of-town boys and nearly 100 local boys were encamped. Captain McCormick led the grand entry of the Scouts at the Cavalcade Tuesday night. The pageant, presented under lighting difficulties, was dedicated to the Rangers. About 500 saw the Cavalcade from the stands. The program . was a combination Scout circus mid historical drama. I'urude Is Colorful Memorial to dead pioneers of Hie plains and tribute to the living, the old-timers parade today was one of the most colorful ever presented in Pampa. It was headed by 1 the cowboy band from Guymon, Okla., which played a concert on Cuyler slreet while the parade formed. A Guymon delegation headed by Senator Wallace Hughes marched behind the band. A dancing horse and an old prospector followed the band, with one of the groups of cowboys and girls which were sandwiched between the floats throughout the line of march. Bearing the word, "courage" and a picture of the setting sun, a covered wagon float was followed by a real covered wagon with a banner leading, "We have sustained courage too," driven by Boy Scouts. On a green and gold float was a pioneer family, the woman in calico and sunbonnet, holding a baby and a shotgun. A costumed trio rode in a buggy, and boys and girls on ponie.s followed. Two of the youngsters in pioneer costume rode in a tiny curt drawn by a Shetland. Ilobarl Honored The Texas Sweetheart float was next, decorated in red and white. Miss Irene Miller of Borger was on Ihis float. Sam Houston school's blue and gold band furnished mid- parade music. Miss De Aun Heiskell, Miss Pampa of 1936, rode on a white and purple float that preceded the Centennial queen's float. Twelve pioneer women of the Panhandle attended Mrs. Fannie Shelton chosen Centennial queen because of her long residence in this section. Uniformed Girl Scouts marched next, then came a float carrying three couples from Guymon who were married in 1884. The Centennial cowboy string band played lively tunes from another float. Memorial floats Honoring the late T. D. Hobart and Col. Charles Goodnight was decorated with white shafts, one commemorating Mr. Hobart with a map of Texas, the other surmounted with the head of a shorthorn steer, emblematic of Col. Goodnight-s contribution to the Panhandle cattle business. The next group of riders included Pampa old-timers. Costumes of the last century were worn by Mrs. De- Lea Vicars, Mrs. C. L. Thomas, Mrs. E. E. Reynolds, and Mrs. H. H. Heiskell, who rode side-saddles. Automobiles of the models first used in Texas—a 1903 Ford and a "merry Oldsmobile" of the early 1900's—ran under their own power in contrast to modern models. A living reolica of the famous Pioneer Woman statue, a young woman with push-back bonnet and blown skirts, leading a young boy and holding a shotgun, occupied the next float. After the Pampa high school band came a large delegation of rodeo riders, and the parade was closed with the miniature Santa Fe "Chief," driven by M. A. Benson and J. S. Sheffield of Topeka, Kan. employes of the railroad. With full steam up and bell clanging, the miniature Super-Chief of the Santa Fe Railroad company was one of the most interesting sights in the parade this morning Five coaches and an engine, equippec wlih rubber lires, made the fu distance under its own power. At the throttle was M. A. Benson veteran Santa Fe engineer. His fireman was J. S. Sheffield, another veteran. Both are from Topeka Kan., where the miniature train was built by employes at the Santa Fe shops. Following the engine was the baggage car. Then came the diner Through the window could be seen tables with dishes and guests dining. Passenger and sleeper cars followed with little people resting a SUITS SHOES HATS "Let us help you to Look well dressed" TOM The HATTER 109i/ 8 We ,t Fo.ter PISTOL TAKEN FROM ESKRIDGE BY DEAD CHIEF Plea df Innocence Is Entered by Ex- Minister HOUSTON, June 4 (/P)— Testimony that Police Chief Ed O'Rielly of Orange took a pistol from the Rev. Edgar Eskridge the day before the officer was shot to death was heard today at the opening of the crusading Baptist minister's trial for murder. A. Minchey, Orange radio repair man, said he saw O'Reilly and Eskrdige sitting in the minister's automobile in front of his (Mlnchew's) shop and that the police chief took a pistol from the preacher. Taking of testimony was delayed because of a defense objection to an arraignment. C. C. Collins, chief of defense, contended the defendant was arraigned at Orange last June and that it was not necessary. At request of District Attorney Hollis Klnard the arraignment was made but while the jury was dismissed. Eskridge entered a plea of Innocence. W. L. Blanchard, mayor of Orange at the time of the slaying, May 29, 1935, was the first witness. The state asked him one question— whether he knew O'Rielly and the defendant. In cross-examination, Collins at;empted to bring out that there had jeen bad blood between O'Rielly and the preacher. This brought sharp state objections. "Do you not know," asked Collins, 'that the defendant had opened warfare against peace officers in Orange and Orange county, Includ- ng O'Reilly, for failure to enforce he law?" The witness, after the defense won a court ruling on the question, answered that he had known the preacher was a crusader. Blanchard said on further cross-exami- lation, that Eskridge had criticized paece officers from the pulpit and lie streets of Orange. Minchew said he was standing in lis shop and that he noticed Esk- •idge and O'Reilly in the preacher's car in front of his shop. He said they seemed to be in earnest conversation and that within \ few minutes O'Reilly reached over o Eskridge's right hand side and ook a pistol and placed it on the •ight hand side of the car. Minchew iaid that the officer then reached n the preacher's inside coat pocket \nd took something. Asked whether it was a gun, the vitness said he was not positive. He added that the object was placed with the pistol taken from the left land side of the ear seat. Minchew said he knew O'Rielly well but that at, the time he was not icuuamted with the preacher. He said that a few minutes after the officer took the pistol from the preacher the two drove off and urnecl at the first street intersection. He said he didn't see them again that day. Under cross-examination, Minchew said that the men did not appear :o have been In a "very good humor." He said he could not hear what they said but could see their lips moving. In answer to questions by Collins, the witness said: 'I knew there were several laws in town, and I didn't know but what Eskridge was a ranger." "Then," said Collins, "you didn't know whether they were going on a raid or to a camp meeting, did you?" ease. A large observation platform adorned the back of the last coach. W. E. Goodlow of Amarillo, district freight agent, was an inteersted spectator. Slightly Injured. Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Cobb and daughter received emergency treatment at Worley hospital last night following an automobile accident on the Borger road. Two men from Borger were driving the other car. Both cars were badly damaged. To Visit Relatives Tabor and Orene Alford, children of Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Alford, will accompany their grandmother, Mrs. W. L.

Slats Jacobs of Merriman, Neb., received gashes on his cheek and forehead from the horn of his big steer. He was given first aid treatment by nurses on the grounds and was able to participate in the steer riding. Brone riding and steer riding events were keenly contested. Many riders were thrown and a few had to "pull leather." Vic Swartz of Byers took first in the bronc riding and Shorty Hill of Farmington, N. M., placed first in the steer riding. Popularity of the Pampa rodeo is shown in the outcome of the bronc and steer riding contests, in which six states were represented in six prize checks, no two men placing coming from the same state. Nearly every state west of the Mississippi and Canada is represented on the list.

Whaley, a close personal friend of Byrns, said the speaker appeared to be recovering; until he suffered the hemorrhage. Those present at the deathbed were Mrs. Byrns, two brothers, M. J. Byrns of Washington and John Byrns of Cincinnati, Mrs. M. J. Byrns, Col. Whaley, Dr. Calver and Rep. McReynolds (D., Tenn.). An attack of influenza several years ago, said Dr. Calver, had left Byrns with "a bad heart." When word of the sudden death reached members of Congress the reaction was one of great sorrow. A small group of Representatives gathered at the hotel, and deeply affected, made plans for the morrow. The House was to assemble today and quickly recess after making arrangements for a state funeral. Complete details of the arrangements were not made known Immediately. McReynolds, close friend and colleague of Byrns, was one of the most deeply affected. He spoke of a conference he had had with Byrns earlier in the day and said ihe speaker's health appeared normal. It was seldom that under the guidance of Speaker Byrns the legislative desires of the White House were not followed, at least In main outline by the House. The great Democratic majority was a decided advantage, but there was also the ;ask of preserving and fostering larmony in the ranks. GRAND JURY CONVENES AFTER CONFESSION IS HEARD DETROIT, June 4. (/P)—Unmasking of the Black Legion, whose confessed executioner told an amazing story in open court of a victim's "one way ride," proceeded today in the secrecy of a grand jury chamber. Dayton Dean, who blandly Ignored the protests of his own attorney and glared at his 12 fellow defendants as he told yesterday of pumping eight pistol shots into the kneeling form of Charles A. Poole be* cause "you do what you're told to do In the Black Legion," was segregated from the other defendants^-* for his own protection. The murder examination was Irt adjournment until Monday, but Clr- ' cult Judge James E. Chenot prepared to open a grand jury Investigation of the hooded order. Assistant Attorney General Chesv ter P. O'Hara, who will direct thd inquiry, said several police officers, including Inspector John I. Navarre, would lay a foundation today for an investigation of reports attributing a dozen.deaths to the Black Legion. It was Inspector Navarre whose early investigation of the slaying of Poole, 32-year old WPA worker, exposed the night riders. In nearby Pontlac, Mich., where 900 persons at a mass meeting last night adopted a resolution demanding "relentless prosecution" of Black Legionnaires accused of violence, three circuit Judges were to act today on a petition by the state attorney general for a grand jury. . In Washington, Attorney General Homer S. Cummings disclosed that he learned of the Black Legion "about a year ago," but that he had no evidence of federal law violations by members of the order "either then or now." M. M. Rutherford underwent a tonsillectomy at Pampa-Jarratt hospital yesterday afternoon. , PENNEY'S DYNAMIC BARGAINS CHILDREN'S PANTIES 11 C A Feature Low Price! Trimly Tailored Panties. Size 4 to 16.
