SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 14, 1936 THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas PAGE FIVE WAGES AND WORKING HOURS MAY BE ISSUE IN CONVENTION PLAN TO ABOLISH TWO- THIRDS RULE MAY CAUSE STRIFE WASHINGTON, June 13. «>)_ Democratic chieftains checked things over today and said they were just about ready for their party's national convention at Phil- ntlelphln which opens June 23 to renominntc President Roosevelt. As they worked long Into the afternoon -to make sure nothing WHS overlooked, Senator Bnrkley of Kentucky retired to his home to begin wilting the keynote speech- he will mnke as temporary chairman of the convention. Surrounded by n corps of party workers and stenographers, Emil Hurja, assistant to Chairman James A. Farley of the national committee, arid Charles Michelson, publicity director, sent out hundreds of letters and telegrams about seating arrangements and hotel accomoda- tlons. They dispatched hundreds of other letters that had to do with such things as liberty bell souvenirs, a memorial breakfast for William Jennings llrynn, a prizefight, a scmpplc breakfast, an ice .skating carnival, and the outdoor demonstration iit Franklin park at which President Roosevelt will make his acceptance speech June 27. The permanent chairman of the Philadelphia convention will be Senator Robinson of Arkansas who presided over the Chicago meeting in. 1932. To date 1,032 of the 1,100 dele- gates.have been chosen. The others will be picked next Tuesday. All delegates thus far selected either have been, instructed or on record as favoring Mr. Rooosevelt's re- nomination. . There was some speculation in the party's councils as to whether any real fights would develop over the adoption o fa platform and over the proposal to abolish the two- thirds rule for the naming of the nominee. Both Farley and President Roosevelt have favored its abolition and adoption of the majority rule. Chairman Ashurst (D-Ariz) of the senate judiciary committee said he thought it possible that the convention would consider proposals to amend the constitution so that wages an_d working hours may be regulated' :Senator Connally (D-Tex) said lie was considering the advisability of urging a take-the-profits-out-of- wqr" plank.

W)—Contented strikers evacuated the besieged factories of France today. Cheered by quick parliamentary votes on laws to give tncm shorter hours, vacations with pay, and other advantages, thousands of workers formed impromptu parades outsides their plants, crippled for more than two weeks, to honor their leftist leaders. Premier Leon Blum announced a "return tp a normal situation" within a few clays. He turned to international matters, and informed persons said his leftist government will reject a British plan to split League of vrnlion in (,'Jtwlanil.

ORDINANCE PASSED BY FORT WORTH IS UPHELD DALLAS, June 13. (/P)—Fedora Judge W. H. Atwcll today clcnieci an application by the Lone Stai Gas company for an order restrain- in!? the i-ily of Port Worth from nutliiut into effect nn ordinance forbidding the dilution of natural gas. Judive Atwell'.s opinion upheld the principal findings of Special Master Maurice Check, appointed to hear (lie controversy by Federal Judge James'Wilson of Fort Worth, who hod granted a temporary order. L. B. Dedding, president of the company, announced an appeal would be taken to the fifth circuit court of appeals at New Orleans. The ordinance prohibits addition of air or oxygen to natural gas served in its city except in such amounts as cannot be excluded. Judge Atwell held the city had legislative power to take such action if it concluded the gas dilution was unsafe and liable to produce harm to the UKITS. Tile gas company erected a $500,00!) plant at Joshua where gas from various fields j.s stabilized and made of standard grade by addition ol nitrogen. This, testimony by the city was intended to show, was an inert quantity, unless as a heating substance, but which registered on gas meters. "The fact that the company has been serving gas with more than the heat units legally required does not excuse it for putting something else into it though it does not rob the customers of any heat value,' the court ruled. Denning said "It is still our belief that stabilization is necessary in giving Port Worth the best possible gas service and we are not ready to lake the responsibility for conditions which would result if stabilization was discontinued." Mayor George Sergeant said aftei learning of the decision that he would seek immediate passage of an ordinance to forbid dilution of natural gas before it is distributed in Dallas. "I think it is time for the. city to act," he said. Adjournmen.t by June 20 Sought By Congressmen WASHINGTON, June 13. (/P)—An intensive drive for adjournment ol Congress not later than June 20 was organized by leaders today as republicans drifted in from theii national convention at Cleveland and democrats looked forward to their own convention in Philadelphia June 23. Some doubt tinged the hopes of the leaders, however, as they prepared to take up their legislative burdens again Monday after a week's recess. With the controversial issues surrounding the tangled tax bill still to be met, House and Senate conferees adjourned today until Monday, four days of deliberations having proved unproductive so far as an agreement of major disputes in ihe revenue measure was concerned. The main point of difference be- ;ween the Senate and House centered around the question of taxing undistributed corporate profits. The House approved a graduated tax ranging up to 42 Ir2 per cent While the Senate voted for a flat 7 per, cent lev^r,..,, ,„ J STATE POLITICS DUE TO PICK UP AT EARLY DATE By HOWARD C. MARSHALL Associated Tress Staff Writer AUSTIN, Tex.. June 13 (API — The deadline for thousands, of candidates seeking certain county, district and precinct offices was drawn today. It was the last day county and precinct candidates and those for district offices in districts composed of only one county could file requests to have their names placed on the ballot for the primary July 22. How many candidates entered the lists throughout the state no one knew, but, in view of the 254 counties with their many sub-divisions, the number admittedly was huge. June 1 was a similar deadline for' filing- by candidates for state offices and district offices In districts containing more than one county. With filing- concluded, President Roosevelt's visit a ' tiling of the past and the Centennial celebration .settling into its stride, state politics was expected to pick up at nn early date. The iM'memlou.s interest in I lie President's swing • through Texas and the opening of the Centennial exposition somewhat shaded other events in news columns the past week. A number of state political leaders contacted Mr. Roosevelt during his visit, but the rapidity of his movement was a barrier to many others. Governor James V. Allrcd was with him throughout the tour. Denying report that he would open his campaign at Waxahachle next week, a source close to the governor said the formal opening probably would be deferred until the end of June or early in July. Although the President said the visit, was non-political, some of his rrmnrks at the San Jacinto battlefield, the Alamo and the Centennial exposition were interpreted as sounding opening guns of the national political war. The Democratic state executive -ommiltee certified 35 names as candidates for state offices, throwing out two on grounds of Improper filing. Those were John O. [Douglas or Houston, who sought to oppose Attorney General William McCraw. and Jefferson T. Baker of Dallas, who wanted to run for commissioner of agriculture. Some talk of a court contest was heard. Orville S. Carpenter, director of the pension organization, warned i-niployes formally they would not be permitted to engage In any political riimpuign. The law prohibits any stale employe I'rnin .such action. Arrangements were virtually completed for the Texas delegation lo the Democratic national convention at Philadelphia to leave Dallas June 20 on a special train. Politics and Centennial advertising will be combined. Clawing Cat Is Cause of Crash; Woman Is Dead DALLAS. June 13.
