PAGE SIX. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas CONNALLY DISCREDITS INFORMATION IN REBUTTAL SUNDAY MORNING, JUNES .3.1, 193d WASHINGTON. June 20 (AP> — An old-time political (Tempest was stirred up in the .senate tonight by an assertion—immediately disputed—from Senator Stehv'er of Oregon, the keynoter at the Republican convention, that there had been "wholesale fraud" and "forgeries by the thousands'' in the administration of the AAA in Texas. Senator Connally ID.. Tex.1 shot back that Steiwer's information had been nolle pressed after an ed and discredited former employe' 1 of the AAA. Senator Bilbo CD.. Miss.i said the former employe. Identified by Steiwer as P. W. Pryor, had been indicted in Missouri for embezzlement. Steiwer then said the charge had been nolle possed after an investigation by the department of justice. During the heated exchanges. Connally asserted that Steiwer knew his informant "had been indicted but didn't 'reveal it to the Senate until the corkscrewing operations of the Senator from Mississippi," Questioned closely by Senator Black (D.. AJa.), Steiwcr said he had sent Pryor to Texas to make an investigation and the expenses would be paid by a "Mr. Judge." Pryor was brought to him, he said, by "Mr. Sam Jones, identified with the Republican national committee." A number of affidavits were placed In the record by Steiwer. Connally said Steiwer admitted the "things of which he complains involve no fraud against the federal government'' but the relations between the landlord and tenant. Connally pressed for additional information about Judge but Stei- wer said he did not know his present connection. In making his charges, Steiwer said: "The money expended under the soil conservation act is bound to bo wasted in large part. It will not reach the farmers who deserve it. The proof of this statement is found in the administration of the .AAA. ••Illustrations of the substantial failure of the AAA to confer benefits upon those who are actual producers of agricultural products ore reflected in a recent study of pdmini.strative irregularities in the State of Texas. ''This investigation, conducted partly by the AAA and partly by private agencies, discloses wholesale fraud and misrepresentation— also widespread conspiracies to plunder the government and especially conspiracies by the powerful local people against the share croppers and defenseless farmmers. "It discloses forgeries by the thousands and numerous crimes consisting of theft of papers and obtaining of money under false pretenses. It discloses, moreover, that a large percentage of frauds were practiced on negroes and uninformed white tenant fanners, but some of the frauds were against the government."

Fischer said in a gubernatorial campaign speech here tonight that geologists and petroleum engineers believe Texas' vast deposits of minerals will last to? several decades. "If this be true, and the state obtains most of a proposed natural resources tax from outside sources and saves for Its resident tax payers this much money annually, It is hard to visualize the marvelous improvement that will occur in Texas during that time," the Tyler attorney said. "The debts and obligations of the state are so great now that we need that revenue." Fischer gave figures intended to show that his proposed natural resources tax could be levied and not disturb the Texas market. He said oil and gas taxes are "must too low now, and carbon black is entirely free of tax." "By a fair tax on these natural resources, Texas will realize over $100,000,000 annually," Fischer said. "With this money the old-age pensions can be paid; ad valorem taxes abolished; the school funds augmented and the gasoline tax reduced from four to two cents per gallon." ^ Lemke Is Third Party Candidate BISMARCK, N.
