THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas StfftS mil Use Noose For First Time On Arthur Gooch McCALESTER. Okla., June 13. </F>) —A grizzled executioner of 53 men reared In the cow country where horse thieves once were strung up summarily, will use the noose his first time June 19 when Arthur Qooch becomes the first Lindbergh law kidnaper to die. ' But neither that experience nor another new one—the construction of the only scaffold he has ever seen—is bothering Rich Owen, who has thrown the switch at 53 executions, 50 in Oklahoma where the penalty for capital crimes is death in the electric chair. The federal kidnaping law, under which Gooch was condemned, provides death by hanging. "I'm not worried about it." Owen said confidently. "I know just how a man should be hanged because I have studied methods of the best hangmen and have talked to others. Gooch, former Okmulgee butcher boy, was sentenced to hang for kid- naping two Paris, Texas, officers and taking them into Oklahoma to avoid arrest. Gooch's last hope of escaping the gallows faded when Mrs. Mabel Bassett, Oklahoma's grandmother commissioner of charities and corrections, was unable to obtain an interview with President Roosevelt as the presidental special passed through Oklahoma. i- (Continued From Page 1) band's condition today as stiff and sore after the shaking up, and said his eye was black from a bump he received.

Jones, RFC chairman, here tonight paid tribute to Eugene Schacher, heroic air pilot who died Saturday in Dallas as the result of burns suffered Friday in a plane crash. Mr. Jones' tribute to Schacher folows: "To Eugene Schacher: "I thought you would live, you had such determination, such courage, such endurance and self control under the most terrifying circumstances and such great physical pain. "You stuck to your post in a veritable furnace with the white heat literally burning your clothes off your body. You did this notwithstanding Pilot Ed Hefley begged you to leave the pit to him. When the door into the pilot room blew open, and the flames were reaching the cabin, you came out and closed the door, going back into the furnace. Again the door blew open, so terrific was the speed, and again you came out, this time a human torch, and went back into the fiery pit. "But when it seemed the fight was winning and that the plane might be landed, you came back and warned your passengers that the landing would be rough. You unlocked the door so that all could escape from the burning plane when the landing was made. You did this when your hands were burned to the bone. You could hardle hold the key. "Your whole thought was for your passengers, and then, when Hefley. did not follow us out, you were the first to go back for him and drag him from the burning cock-pit. Your fortitude under the greatest imaginable suffering was an inspiration and a lesson. You never lost your smile during the terrible hours that followed for you. Such courage, such fortitude, such endurance, it has never been my privilege to witness. "You are up there, looking down upon your family, your devoted wife, and two loving children, one but three weeks old. Your soul as white and as clean as the clouds through Which it soars and I pray God for the knowledge to understand for that purpose he saved my life by sacrificing yours.—Jesse H. Jones."

Parley, chairman of the democratic national committee, issued a statement tonight calling the republics)] selections "the weakest, ticket ever nominated in the history of the party." "The republicans." his statement said, "should adopt 'lost with I,:m- don' :>s (heir campaign slogan. "His (Landon'si nomination is ;i confession of i>uill on the part of a bankrupt republican party. In effect, the American people are asked to perform the dangerous oxxptri- mcnt of turning over the reins of government to a man whose record has been concealed, whose veins are a mystery, and whose career in public life is without a single achievement to indicate that he is equipped for the exacting duties of the White House. "No one knows what he stands for, what he wants, or what he proposes to do." Farley, declaring he wondered how the republican leaders "kept from laughing out loud," said Ihnt "first they denounce President Roosevelt . . . then they nominate a man who advocated policies far more drastic than the chief executive ever thought of attempting." Charging the ivpubllrun party with "dodging the ISKIIH." Farley said: "Every single republican who had a part in shaping party policies for the past generation was passed over in favor of a man 18 months ago was unheard of by 95 per cent of the American people."
