MGi EIGHT THE t>AMPA NfeWS, Painpa, TexSi EVfettflTCf, JUNE 9, Airplane Flown to City By Frank Shaw A new Pampa-owned airplane made its appearance at the Pampa airport this morning when Frank Shaw, .local pilot, flew a Cessna Monoplane here from Wichita, Kan. THft new ship was purchased by Howard Bean of the Bean Drilling company. Mr. Bean was a passenger on the ship when it dropped from the sky at 7:15 o'clock. • The ship was the one raced by Lee Miles of Wichita, Kan., during the Centennial air show. It is a four-place monoplane powered -with a 145 hi p Warner Super-Scarab motor capable of cruising at 150 miles an hour and climbing nt the rate of 1,000 feet a minute. The plane is a deep cream color. Mr. Miles Is sales manager of the Cessna corporation, located at Wichita, Kan. 'He is a familiar figure around Pampa. The ship now owned by Mr. Bean has been here three times. . (Continued From Page 1) announcement of significance came from these parleys. The arrival of Colonel Knox, Chicago publisher, possibly today, was expected In some quarters to produce more Indications of how the actual contest under way might shape up. Also the coming of former President Hoover for a speech tomorrow night might introduce factors which now are only speculative. The ceremonies this morning evoked memories of past party glories. It was on the same floor thut Calvin Coolidge swept, to his 1924 nomination. Kansas delegates had places right up front. Wooden standards seven feet tall marked the place of each delegation on a plan rougrtly resembling the locations of the states on the map. Maine had the first row on the "Atlantic" side, Washington on the Pacific. Iowa, Minnesota, and Kansas shared the mid- die front. The singing of "America" and prayer, by the Rev. Albert J.. McCartney, of the Covenant First Presbyterian church in the District of Columbia, preceded Mayor Burton on the program. As for the platform planks, a wide array of contradictory suggestions arrived with the delegated spokesmen of the people "back home." Republicans Fearful.

(fl 3 )— A floor :lght over the farm plank threatened at the republican convention today as the Kansas delegation's efforts to write an "all candidates' program" hit snags. The conferees split on production control, soil conservation, and foreign trade policies. Rep. Hope (R-Kan), whose proposal for a tariff-equivalent subsidy for the farmers formed -the nucleus of the plank suggestions, said the group would be called into session igain, but he seemed ratlier doubtful of the outcome. The conferees failed to make any appreciable headway yesterday, Hope said. The rift was n dtstincl surprise to observers. Belief was expressed in authoritative circles that if an impasse persisted in the delegation the several factions would magnify their differences before the platform committee with a possibility that the whole farm issue might be thrown on the floor of the convention. Hope, citing the difiiculty faced by the conferees, said his plan to draw upon the general revenue to pay subsidies equalizing in the farm markets the tariff benefits of the industrial markets, has been in and out of the program a half-dozen times and its future still was uncertain. NEW YORK, June 9. (/P)—The tock market whipped up a little more buying interest in specialties oday, including retail stores and obaccos. Scattered utilities and rails were also in demand. Gains generally were fractional, but there were scat- ered advances of 2 or more points. Some losers under profit-taking were also In evidence and the motors and steels were narrow. The lose was firm. The turnover was around 750,000 shares.

Go back only as far as Grover Cleveland, and former New York governors have three times been elevated to the White House while two others were their party nominees for the presidency. There has scarcely been a presidential year since Cleveland's time when the New York governor, of whichever party, was not a strong contender for the nomination right down to the deciding ballot. announcement stirred high hopes among Republican leaders not in ew York alone. Yet who their nominee to succeed him shall be is apt to prove a difficult selection. If there Is a real chance of electing a Republican governor in Now York It may be that the Republican presidential candidate- for 1940 also' is then being picked, assuming that President Roosevelt Is re-elected. That is an aspect of the Lehman action such Republican presidential possibilities as Senator Vandenberg would have to consider. Waiting for 1940 against a possible (Republican gubernatorial sweep in New York this year would not seem a political paying proposition. empower states wages. to fjx minimum Factions among the Landon supporters, it appeared, were fearful lest the democratic convention a fortnight hence may pick up the minimum wage-constitutional question and capitalize by advocating an amendment to offset the recent 5-4 Supreme Court decision against the New York state law. But Borah and Senator Vandenberg of Michigan insisted it would be premature and unnecessary to come out for an amendment now. •Borah told a crowded press conference that minimum wages could be taken care of under the constitution as it stands. He was more intent that there 'be an unequivocal plank against monopoly, and none for return to the "old, rigid gold standard." He demanded that Landon state his position. An assertion by him that Landonites had entrusted the writing of a monetary plank to advocates of the gold standard was denied by John Hamilton, Landon manager. "I have planks on these questions," Borah said, "the committee may have them if it assures me of a chance to defend them on the floor, should rejection follow." There was no sign that he would be invited to appear. Asked' whether$ he would support Landon if his views were not followed, Borah said he would cross that bridge later. Lesser disputes were heading up around the reciprocal tariff, federal relief and other Roosevelt policies. AH were to be brought to the con- A Political Bombshell Against that background of the major importance of the New York governorship as a launching place for presidential booms, Governor Lehman's action in rejecting in advance a nomination for a thlrj term comes as something o£ a political bombshell. It opened a Pandora's box of new considerations not only for his fellow Democrats, state and national, but for Republican strategists. Lehman, running again with that unprecedented 800,000 majority of •34 behind him, would be a formidable opponent for any man the New York Republicans might name. With Lehman out, the sit- Draft Possibilities Is Lehman actually out? It Is said from Albany that he means exactly what he says. There is no disposition to question that, But declining another nomination now ond in September, when the New York Democrats pick their state ticket in the thick of the presidential campaign are quite different things. Governor Lehman has been greatly honored by his party. Could he refuse to be drafted if, say, the fate of the party nationally appeared to hang very much in September on what he did? President Roosevelt himself was drafted for h(s first governorship race by Presidential Nominee Al Smith in 1928 in somewhat similar circum- Mrs. Neva Patterson To Teach Swimming Mrs. Neva Patterson, who lin? studied swimming under some of tli leading Instructors of the nation Including Olympic mentors, wll teach swimming this summer nt th municipal pool.

When good health can be maintained to such a large degree by merely sleeping and thus allowing overtaxed bodies and minds to regain a proper balance, it is hard to understand why so many persons are heedless of this necessary requiiement of a balanced program of life. "Some individuals need more sleep than others, and the most valuable experiments in this line are the ones each person makes on himself. We must each take into consideration in this experiment, however, that how well we sleep is as important, as how long we sleep. A 'good night's rest' means a suf- fient number of hours spent in sleep to enable each individual to feel well, do efficient work, and to jceep in a cheerful humor the next day. "3pme exercise out of doors each day will help us to sleep soundly at night. We must also have fresh ait in our Bleeping quarters.

By GEORGE TUCKER NEW YORK—This is a note to Alex Yokel, who wrote "Three Men on a Horse," that long-run comedy now in its second year on Broadway concerning a timid fellow who could pick the winning race horses. My story concerns a citizen who was hauled into the psychopathic ward of Bellevue hospital after a lively afternoon among the nags at Jamaica track. This fellow was either very good 01 e very lucky—although there are those who will insist that you can't possibly be fortune's darling when you wind up in a hospital. The facts are: he invaded Jamaica with $20 in Ills purse. Plunging the roll on a long-shot in the first race, he won. He wagered judiciously thereafter and at the end of the fifth race he had picked five consecutive winners. That $20, by the way, had by leaps and bounds become $1,700. You know how it is—constant repetition grows monotonous, even when you are picking winners. Bs- sides, the bars beckoned, it was a waim day, and he had a thirst. The first drink merely wet his whistle. The second was better—it cleared some of the dust from his throat. His conviviality blossomed handsomely after the third, and by that time he was buying drinks and tossing his coin around like a pre-repeal playboy. Sometime later, after about the uniteenth quaff, things became hazy and the first thing he knew he and some fellows were tossing crockery al each other. Then things' went blank and stayed that way , . . even when the gendarmes came and put him in the rubber-tired wagon with its white-jacketed attsndants who are gentle but firm on occasion. At the hospital, after placing the patient under observation, they wenl through his effects to ascertain his identity. They found his watch and his money and his wallet and a few cards. Then (and this is the pay-off) they found a neatly folded racing form showing the seven races listec at Jamaica that day. Not only had he checked the firs' five winners—rhe had the sixth ant seventh winners too—which, in this town, is known as talent. Unfortunately, that sort of talent doesn' pay dividends in the psychopathic ward. It's probably the one place in New York where you can't find a bookie. One of the theories behind "The Seamen's Handbook for Shor Leave" Is that if you read it care fully and follow instructions yoi will never get into serious difficulty ' It lists all the tough ports and warns eamen what to expect in those ilaces. In Bombay, for instance, you are told to drink only boiled and fil- .ered water. The book specifically ists Helsingfors, Finland, as a place vhere you can feel free and easy, s there is no record of sallorg ever laving been over-charged for any- hing.

Harris of Galveston, a noted psychiartrist, testified at the murder irial of the Rev. Edgar Eskridge oday that he believed the preacher was insane when he killed Ed J.
