SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 21, 1936 THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Painpa, Teww PAGE THREE 'UNION PARTY' CAUSES MUCH COMMENT IN PARTY RANKS By JOHN P. CHESTER Associated Press Staff Writer .PHILADELPHIA, June 20 (AP) J—Talking harmony and even unanimity, Democratic leaders to- •nfght began *j rn, Philadelphia for next week's national convention— but prospects nevertheless heightened for at least one floor fight and much behind-the-scenes maneuvering. It was disputed by none that the forces of Franklin D. Roosevelt and John Nance Garner •were in strong control; party chieftains reiterated that theirs would be the only names placed before the convention. Beneath this solid front, however, ran a swelling discussion of how far the struggle over abandoning or retaining the two-thirds vote rule would extend. Few thought the. Roosevelt managers could be halted, when the moment comes, in their desire to Install a majority rule. There was Increasing talk also of platform drafting, and particularly of the shaping of a money plank. Closed-door argument was considered certain. A strong undercurrent of private talk circled likewise about the newly created "union party" of Representative Lemke of North Dakota and the Rev. Charles E. Cougnlin of Detroit, but, publicly at least, the Democratic spokesmen either declined to comment on repeated predictions of a Roosevelt sweep. Nevertheless, it was known that in private they were weighing carefully the effects of the Lemke' move. '. Little of all this appeared on the surface as the ever increasing Democratic legions took over the city. More bunting and flags appeared on the streets. More "Welcome Democrats" signs were displayed. More hammers pounded as last-minute expansions were made. More police sirens shrieked as members of the party high command were escorted about the city. The convention tempo was set high. Broadly-beaming, James A. Farley, chairman of the national committee, pronounced to a circle of newspapermen that a $2,000,000 campaign fund would be sufficient to .re-elect Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Garner. Half, or nearly half of It, he said, would be realized from what he described as 5,000 "nomi- " niator rallies" gathered when the President delivers his .acceptance speech next Saturday night. 'A "short" platform — running around 2,000 words as compared to the 1,600 of 1932 and the 3,000- Word Republican declaration from Cleveland; no minority report upon it; no names before the convention beside those of Roosevelt and Garner; and victory in November—these were other of Farley's press conference predictions. But even Farley conceded that there was likely to be some "floor debate" over the two-thirds rule. Opposition to abandoning Jt has been outspoken in the south. Farley would not answer a question as to whether the Roosevelt forces rtight abandon their drive for a rulerby-majority vote if the fight grew into a slam-bane affair. 'The background of the two- thirds rule is an historic one. Its genesis was in the "solid south," where powerful figures first pushed it across so that the northern and western states—far outnumbering them—could not dictate without effective opposition the choice of a presidential and vice-presidential candidate. Under it, just as' the name implies, two thirds of the voting delegates must cast their ballots for one man before he becomes the convention's choice. The rule, adopted anew by each convention after it meets, has led to the prolonged democratic convention deadlocks. The question of a possible plank advocating a constitutional amendment to legalize specifically state wage and hour legislation also went unanswered by Farley. Some close to him, however, shook their heads in the negative. It was taken as certain here that the 1932 democratic money plank would be reworded. It was written by Senator Carter Glass of Virginia. .At Cleveland last week, the Republican platform drafters lifted it also entirely. The plank's keynote was "sound money." .•» WHAT THEY EARNED NEW YORK, June 20. (XP)—Max Schmeling and Joe Louis each received $140,915.14 for their 12- round heavyweight fight at the Yankee stadium Friday night. Official figures announced today reveal the actual paid attendance was 39,872 and the gross receipts $599,872.01 of which $547.372.01 came in at the gate while the remainder —$52,500—was paid for the radio and moving picture rights. BALDWIN STUMP AGAINST WAR PENALTIES Defends Removal of Sanctions in Speeches LONDON, June 20 (AP)—British leaders bathed tonight over the question o:- sanctions as Prime Minister Baldwin took the stump in Scotland to\deferid his government's action in advocating their removal from Italy. The government chief declared military strength was needed for collective security and said: "Let advocates of collective security who ate unwilling to provide a single volunteer for our forces or a single shell for aircraft think of that. "If war should come by collective security every nation will be in it up to the neck. "I believe the horrors of another modern war in Europe might lead to a revolt of the people against all leaders. You might find Europe in a state of completely barbarous anarchy from end to end. 'Let us not underrate the risks of sanctions and collective security." Pleading for support of the government's rearmament program, Baldwin said: "If risks have to be taken, if we ever have to fight again, see that our own people at all events have the best there is to fight with In quality and quantity." The government's about face on the question of sanctions drew sharp attacks from various quarters, including the labor party, the liberal party, and the League of Nations union. Before a conservative rally at Wlshaw, Scotland, Baldwin explained that an oil embargo during the Italo-Ethiopian war was impracticable because of the United States' attitude. He suggested it would be well to get the United States and other non-members to join the League of Nations in order to prevent aggressions. Baldwin referred to a socialist charge that sanctions had failed because an oil embargo was not i included in the action against | Italy and declared: "The plain reason why an oil sanction was not imposed was that an enormous quantity of oil comes from a country which is not in the League of Nations and which we had no reason to believe would prohibit the export of oil. "If we had Japan, the United States and Germany in the League, collective security could be worked tomorrow."

As Perryton merchants and banking institutions serve parts of all these adjoining counties, it is safe to assume that the $175,000 figure is a very conservative estimate. M. G.

June 20—There will be approximately 250 head of livestock consisting of horses, cows, calves, Brahma steers, and Mexican bulldogging steers rounded up for the 14th annual Anvil Park rodeo, held here July 2-4. Marion McLain of Sun City, Kansas, who is the arena boss this year guarantees that this year's show will be faster and more thrilling than ever. With six fast bucking chutes, steers and broncs are literally going to be poured out. The rodeo committee has been selecting stock for the last month in order that it have the right type. It has to go to Old Mexico for the bulldogging steers, and South Texas for the Brahma riding steers. The entire Panhandle Is chairman and member of the state committee from the 31st senatorial district, Is one of the four delegates from the 18th congressional district. combed for bucking horses at all seasons of the year. Twenty five head of long horned Mexican steets come right out of Old Mexico and will be on hand for the 'dogging' contest. The. Brahma calves are going to be plenty fast and many of the hungry loops of the cowboys are going to be leaky before this event is over. Brahma calves are used in the calf roping contest, and raised right on the ranch where the rodeo is held. The directors of the show own the bucking horses and have scouts in the field the year round selecting the proper type. About one out of ten is accepted of those submitted. These horses have to come up to rigid requirement to make good at the Anvil Park rodeo. There will be horses and then some. Just a few words about some of this horse flesh. "Crazy Boy" is probably the oldest bronc of this entire lot. He hasn't been in the game long, but has a good many cowboys to his credit that have "bit the dust." "Burl K," "Davis Y", "Black Bottom," "Tony Warware," and others usually give a good account of themselves. The management has been since 1922 collecting these bucking horses, some of which make good, and others that have to be "weeded out" from the string from time to time. They are looking for the toughest horses available. The average weight of this herd will be from 1,000 to 12000 pounds. In looking over this string you might think that they are saddle horses, but you .will change your mind when they "unwind." These bucking horses have less work to do than probably any other type of horse. They come cmt of a chute four or five times each year, and the remainder of the time are carrel for similar to a race horse, or fine gaitod horse. CLIPPER SMITH QUITS SAN JOSE. Calif., June 20.
