*AOB EIGHT tttE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pftfhf*, EVENING, Jlflfa 19, 1986 SEEK PROTEST 'GREAT BETRAYAL' IS 'SCORED BY FOUR LABORITES LONDON, June 19, (/P)—Embittered sanctlonlsts sought today to loose a storm of public protest against the government's decision to back suspension of Italian sanctions. Four labor leaders, who called the cabinet's recommendation "the great betrayal" of the League of Nations, led a movement for a nationwide scries of campaign meetings. Their plan of opposition, pointing toward a parliamentary censure debate Tuesday, followed the same lines as the public storm created against the stillborn Honrp- Laval proposal to end the Itnlo- Ethioplan war. At the head of the parade of protestors was Clement R. Attlee, house of commons labor leader who has signified his intention to ask a vote of criticism against Prime Minister Baldwin's government, Other sponsors of the week-end campaign were Herbert Stanley Morrison, secretary of the London labor party, Hugh Dalton, labor member, and Arthur Greenwood, labor's research secretary. They took their cues from the fiery David Lloyd George, war time minister who lead the attack against Baldwin and his ministers yesterday with the ringing pronouncement: "there they sit—the cowards!" as he pointed scornfully at the ministerial benches. Already national labor and national liberal members were threatening to break away from the government over tlie sanctions Issue. Their warnings handed to their respective leaders—Ramsay Mo- Donald and Sir John Simon—the delicate task of attempting to rally supporters to a united front before Tuesday. A further deflection come with announcement from n group of sanctlonlst conservatives, ordinarily favoring the government's policies, they had not been converted by the speech of Anthony Eden, foreign secretary who disclosed the cabinet decision on the sanctions question. London newspapers. formerly lyrical In praise of "brilliant young Eden," showed a marked change in tone. Rearin' to Go Middle Western States Hit by Hoppers, Drought (lly The Aasoduleil I'n-aa) The Pacific northwest and the drought suffering south-eastern states were relieved by rain today but the showers dodged a domain of heat over the middle plains. New records for high June temperatures were marksc! ;;;: in scattered hot spots of the central states where the mercury rose past the 100-degree level at a midsummei clip. Farmers turned more seriously to the problems of drought and grasshoppers, and some officials pressed for government aid. Governor Thomas Berry of south Dakota listened to drought reports from over his state yesterday and concluded: "throughout a large partion of the state, people are going to need more help from tin- federal government this summer anrt winter than ever before." The southeastern portion of South Dakota was an exception. In Washington Senator Murphy (D-Ia) after a talk with President Roosevell, said he felt sure funds to combat the damage of a dry season would be available from the resettlement administration. In Kansas, where the mercury reached a top of 110 degrees, poison work against grasshoppers has been started in several counties. Farmers In the eastern and central portions reported the infestion was worst of recent years. At McPherson, Kas., merchants swept 'hoppers out of their doorways. -«» TRADE BRISK NEW YORK, June 19.

Eskridge Wants To Ride Horse On Prison Farm HUNTSVILLE, June 19. tfP)—The year-long trail from the pulpit of his Baptist church at Orange to the old state penitentiary here was ended today for the Rev. Edgar Eskridge.. Late yesterday the strapping preacher, fond of his big hat, boots and six guns, heard the four iron gates that separate Texas convicts froin the outer world close behind him. Thus he began a five-year term assessed him for the shotgun slaying last year of Chief of Police I?d O'Reilly of Orange. Divested of his cowboy regalia and guns, the preacher told prison authorities he hoped they would give him a job riding a horse. Horsemen are used to herd cattle on the prison system's lands. Under prison routine Eskridge will be assigned a job within a few days. Last year Eskriclge was In the midst of a vigorous pulpit campaign against vice and crime. He led parties of officers on vice hunts. On May 28, his friend. Ed O'Reilly disarmed him after the preacher protested his life had been threatened. The next day O'Reilly was shot down on a street corner. Eskridge was arrested. His trial was transferred to Houston. It lasted two' weeks and last Saturday a jury returned a verdict of minder without malice. The preacher's counsel pleaded he was temporarily insane. Seven Negroes Safe From Mob CORPUS CHRISTT, June IB (IP)— Juneteenth found seven El Campo, Texas negroes apparently safe from the threat of a mob which sought to lynch them and two others for the slaying of Tip Simmons, El Campo white man. Whereabouts of the other two negroes was not disclosed. Sheriff E. J. Koehl of Wharton county brought the seven here yesterday for safekeeping. He said four of the prisoners were held for the slaying and three as witnesses. Simmons, who sometimes assisted officers, was slashed fatally when he attempted to take a negro woman into custody at a dance in cele- btatlon of payment of the bctius. Officers were told negroes in the place "ganged" him. After Simmons wildly fired his pistol twice, he was set upon with knives and razors. He died in a few minutes. Soon after nine negroes were rounded up, a mob formed at Wharton. Mob leaders went to the jail there and demanded surrender of the prisoners, but officers already had spirited them away. The howling mob next appeared at Bay, City but the quarry had been removed again. When the mob appeared convinced officers had outsmarted them, it returned to El Campo and set Hie to the cafe in which Simmons was slain. The ministry of communications of Brazil hus divided the country into seven zones and limited the number of radio stations and permissible for each zone so that Rio de Janeiro can have but seven stations, Sao Paulo five, Porto Alegre, Recife, Bello Horlzonte and Sao Salvador, two each. Other state capitals may have one apiece. Miss Lema Jane Butcher left recently (or Amarillo, where she will teach and study in a business college this summer.

RELIEF DILL THREE BILLION WILL PROVIDE JOBS FOR THREE MILLION WASHINGTON, June 19. (fP\— President Roosevelt and his aides will have $3,271,000,000 for relief and public works in the next fiscal year beginning July 1. The sum is estimated as sufficient to provide Jobs for more than 3,000,000 on the basis of present costs of relief. With a $2,375,000,000 deficiency- relief bill awaiting only President! Roosevelt's signature before the new' program is thrown into high gear, legislative steps also are being taken to study long range relief problems. After legislative action was completed yesterday' on the big appropriation measure, the senate passed and sent to the house a resolution calling for a national commission to recommend future* policies on unemployment. Senator Murray '(D-Mont) the author, declared unemployment and relief "now appear to be long term charges against the national government." The $1,425,000,000 item in the deficiency bill for the Works Prog- ress administration is expected to furnish pay envelopes for.2,000,000 persons in the next year. This money will be spent under the direction of the President, as provided in the bill, instead of by. Administrator Harry L. Hopkins. The $300,000,000 fund for secretary Ickes 1 Public Works administration is expected to finance a half billion dollars worth of non-federal Public Works projects. The actual amount is dependent upon the number of cities which accept Ickcs' suggestion that they take grants of only 45 per cent and themselves put up the rest instead of borrowing from PWA. During the year also $248,000,000 will be sp'ent for the 318,505 members of the Civilian Conservation corps, and about $300,000,000 for reclamation and other heavy engineering projects expected to put 100,000 to work. Another 400,000 can be employed with the $1,000,000,000 In relief cash which remains unspent from the previous appropriation. ••• Eclipse of Sun Seen in Russia MOSCOW. June 19. (/P)—Instruments of scientists held secrets of the sun today after a brief eclipse which threw a shadow from the Mediterranean to the Sea of Japan. The results, when tabulated and coordinated, may add materially to man's knowledge in several important scientific fields. Racing across the. Soviet union at 2,000 miles an hour,' the phenome- non obliterated the sun long enough at various points in the 60-mile wide totality zone to allow many expeditions to make observations. Some tcok pictures, others made spectrographic studies, radio tests occupied still others and members of several expeditions sought new evidence in support of the Einstein theory. The last of the lengthy shadow was observed at Khabarovsk at 9:07 a. m., (12:07 A. M., Central Standard time today). Then it passed out over the sea of Japan. Miss Connie Wayland of Palo Alto, Calif., has been a guest In the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Sims. Cardui Helped Three Times At three different times, Cardui has helped Mrs. Ike Wright of Sealy, Texw. "I used Cardui, when a girl, for cramps, and It helped then," shd writes. Next, after marriage, she reports having taken Cardui when she felt weak, nervous and restless before her children we're born. And during middle life, it helped her again. ''I was miserable," she explains. "I did not have an .appetite. I was very blue and upset. I remembered Cardui had helped me, so took it again and soon began to pick up. I ate and had more strength. I kept up the Cardui and did not have any more trouble. Is it any wonder that I recommend Cardui to all my friends?" Thousnmls of women testify Cardui beno- filed them.
