Roper, that Texas is in an adolescent period, and the opportunities in it are almost un- lirhited. Recently, Mr. Roper di.scu.ssed the state at length, first explaining that, contrary to some belief, he had been within its borders a number of times. "Texas is adolescent," lie said. "It is just 'beginning a great endeavo rand the people who will have a part in its future are to be congratulated. "I came to Texas to express my great interest in it and in the magnificent work you are doing in holding a Centennial celebration the like of which has never been attempted by other states." " An important benefit of the Centennial which many might overlook, was the necessity such an undertaking enforced for a coordinated study of the state and development of means of coordinating the citizenship. ' • Every section ought to be interested in the Centennial and the only way to understand it is to go and see it. 4; .Mr. Roper expressed surprise at the speed with which the exposition at Dallas had been gotten underway in •such a short time after money for the work was made 'available. '•''.It could all easily be explained to Mr. Roper in the simple statement that it's just the way Texas does things. - • And while on the subject it may be well to add that _this spirit which is gripping the entire state, probably 'iias no greater emphasis than is to be found right here in the Panhandle and in Pampa. •••• Newcomers to the city and to the area marvel at the aggressiveness to be found in all quarters and at the "progressive, forward-looking attitude that is everywhere in evidence. ••• It is good to know how Mr. Roper feels about Texas, but if he really wants the bug to bite him hard—most certainly he'll have to come to the Panhandle and, particularly, to Pampa. DR. WILLIAM C. MITCHELL I Last rites were held Saturday forenoon for Dr. William C. .Mitchell, one of Pampa's most beloved citizens who died early Friday in an Amarillo hospital. '•'•'- In his passing, Pampa has lost a respected citizen and a true friend. Dr. Mitchell was a progressive, civic-minded resident whose interests always were centered in the things that were good for Pampa. •" " The city can ill afford to lose a man of his splendid character. All Pampa mourns his death and the sympathy of the community goes out to those near and- dear to him in their bereavement. BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- WASH1NGTON—Tlu> lie-publicans turned out a somewhat dreary platform at Cleveland and everyone now waits to see what the Democrats will produce at Philadelphia. -Roosevelt, however, will dictate his own party's platform. He is a sufficiently shrewd politician to use a few planks to shoot holes in any generalities and inconsistencies in the opposition platform, taking full advantage of the fact that the Republicans did their shooting first. The president may decide to crack at the states' rights shibboleth which the G. O. P. has now taken unto itself, despite the fat that it was for many decades Democratic property, while the party of Lincoln and McKinley leaned more toward a Hamiltonian doctrine of strong centralized authority. • 'He would have to tread softly, because there is still great popular belief in such shibboleths, as the Republicans well realize. But there js also plenty oi' evidence concerning situations where it has been shown difficult or impossible, regardless of constitutional and supreme court limitations, to get states to pass desirable social, humanitarian, or labor legislation because it would put them or certain of their citizens at a competitive disadvantage with states which did not so legislate. Unemployed insurance, for instance, lagged when left to the states, because opponents could always say that the'-necessary payroll tax would drive industries elsewhere. The Republican platform proposes to encourage adoption by the states of honest and practical measures for meeting the problems of unemployment insurance. '• Support for the adoption of state laws and interstate compacts to abolish sweatshops and child labor and protect women and children with respect to maximum hours, minimum wages, and working conditions, as promised by the Cleveland platform, is another case in point. - The sweatshop operator's habit of crossing state lines to areas where state-imposed labor standards are low is notorious. An employer would be better off under a federal minimum wage law than if operating under a state wage law while his competitor 50 miles away paid as low wages as he liked. Interstate compacts designed to put all employers on an even basis sound nice. Their formation is cumbersome and the more states you try to get into one, the more the task tends toward impossibility. Landon recognized these facts when he telegraphed the convention that in case minimum wage laws were impossible through means suggested by the platform, he would be for a constitutional amendment. •'•• He did not suggest confining power for this legislation to the states, because he recognized the need of at least some provision for effective federal participation. '- -Handing relief back to the states is another matter, although it has some of the same aspects, because it has Ibeen demonstrated that some states are unable or unwilling to provide adequate relief for citizens.

MAN ABOUT MANHATTAN By GEORGE TUCKER NEW YORK—I remember: The mardi gras opening of the Casino de Paree and the startled elation of the first nighters when they discovered the aquarium in the lobby with, not goldfish, but real live nude mermaids.

By PRESTON GUOVER WASHINGTON — The power measuring stick idea, which started with TVA, has involved Pacific northwest senators in a merry battle over a bill to govern rates on the Bonneville project on the lower Columbia river. Moreover, during ultimate compromise talk, the administration took a hand and attached a rider to establish a new power policy. Under this policy the federal power commission would take over wholesale rate regulation of not only Bonneville, but of TVA, Grand Coulee, Fort Peck, Mont., Boulder Canyon dam, Casper-Alcova, Wya., and the St. Liwi-ence project, if ever it is undertaken. The plan is to put it through this session, if disputes can be pacified. Senator Pope of Idaho is pitted against the four senators from Oregon and Washington, and each side feels it is favored by Presi- went Roosevelt. Pope Favorea TVA Idea The Tennessee Valley authority applies a blanket wholesale rate fpr its ppwer to all communities .within its scope, regardless of distance from th,e power s(tes. Pope thought that would dp nicely for Bonneville and appeared to epvisage cheap electriplty coursing over the Blue mountains 2QO or 300 miles into the agripul-r tural sections of the Snake river valley and to mine centers of North Idaho. That it would not dp so nicely for nearby Washington and Qve- gon markets such as Portland Vft s the view of senators from thq§e states. Sale of power is expected to pay part of the construction. The washing^o^-Oregon senators felt that any effort 'o give «s low rates to Bplse 300 or wore miles away, as to Portland, 40 miles away, would push rates to Portland so high that private companies could undersell Bonnevjlla. Senator Pope advanced a bill to create a Columbia VaUey authority patterned after TVA with authority to fix blanket* rates just as TVA had. A rival bill was introduced by the four senators from Washington and Oregon proposing that the army, - which is supervising- building of Bonneville dam, should operate it upon completion, expected by July, with the federal power commission cooperating in rate matters. Pope appeared contented with this plan, broadened as it was to give the power commission control over the wholesale rates for all projects. He asserted it was an administration agreement that the blanket style of rate evolved by TVA should be the pattern tor the rest. Such was not, however, the view of the four senators. The Idahoan still objected to a proposal in the bill to divide 35 per cent of Bonneville's profits between Washington and Oregon, Idaho getting none. Meantime Senator Norris of Nebraska, who has sheltered TVA against any ill-winds, evidently had not been taken into the discussion, for he told reporters he had not been advised of the new policy. He was pretty frank in stating he did not want it upsetting- TVA's affairs. M. P.

COMPANY, J»S AROUND HOLLYWOOD Test flircrtor at a major film studio, Mr. Busquct has ushered mnn.v of today's stars through that first all-Important meetins with camera and "mike." He sits in today, for Robbln Coons. Wy HAROLD S. BTJSQUET HOLLYWOOD — When a ntll- dio offers to make a screen test of you, what happens? This is a question often asked me and here la the answer: First, an expert make-up artist studies your features. Very deftly IIP applies a little shading here, perhaps ,a Jiighllght there. Soon your best features are brought oiit, Say you are a girl, he-will .also- supervise the hair dresser, being sure your hair Is arranged in the most becoming style tor 'your face. This of course, is "a -.very' Important Item. Next you go to the wardrobe, where an attractive gowii, one best suited to'your figure la "selected. After this you are taken to a stage and on to a set, from which possibly Norma Shearer or Joan Crawford or Rosalind Jftussell has just departed. You Get The Best Often the same cameraman who photographed' these stars will direct the electricians in settlnig the lights to 'photograph you ~ .and with just as much care, because the studio is as ..eager us,you" for a successful test. The next day (if you have photographed well) we choose a suitable scene and get £ seasoned film actor to work with you. Rehearsals begin in my office. If you show promise of playing a good scene, we" arrange for a sound test the following day, .thus giving you .a chance to sleen over it. Of course if you don't show up well in rehearsals, we postpone the test—indefinitely. Most a Bit Nervous When you are pn the set, made- up and ( properly gowned for your acting test, we rehearse the scene once more, mostly for camera angles and the sound technicions, and to help put you at ease. Mose people are apt to become a little nervous. When you are ready to take your place under the lights, we make the scene several times, then order only the best "takes" printed. Later, 'in a tiny projection room, you can see yourself on .the screen, as do the studio executives. If they decide you are a good investment, that your personality is interesting- and your ability promising, you will be placed under contract. Most stars have traveled this road.

Talks WASTEFUL GENERATION Ry BROOKE PETERS CHURCH An adage of our grandparents' lime was "Make .vour head save your heels." It has its uses In training children. Sam went up and down stirs five separate time on a series of tasks which lie could have accomplished in one trip, had he thought ahead and organized his plans. Most children make similar mistakes, and many parents, by their own lack of thought, encourage the habit. Mrs. X sends Mary to the comer for a spool of tlirend. When Mary comes home, her mother remembers that she needs some seambinding also, and Mary makes a second trip to the corner. Scarcely is she back at her interrupted play, when Mrs. X asks her to take a message to n neighbor. All the errands could have been done on the one trip, had Mrs. X thought ahead. It wns difficult for ,Mary to give up three times as much of her play time as was necessary. Worse still, however, was the example the mother set of lack of co-ordination. .Children can be taught early to plan ahead, and to make lists of errands to be run and purchases to be made. If, however, their mothers exhibit no ideal of organization, they are slow to see the'advantage of careful planning and are apt to grow up with very littje regard for the value of time and physical or mechanical energy. Is Tom ever made to stop and think that an extra jaunt to town with the car to get the paper he forgot the first time, triples the cost of the paper? People speak ot the ".wasted generation' 'interms of pity. They often fail to see that it is also a wasteful generation. Money they are learning to do without by force of circumstance, but time and energy they still pour out like water. — «•» Mrs. Ray Rlley and children have returned from Oklahoma where they visited relatives.
