PAGE EIGHT THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampfi, Texal TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 28, 1036. DU POUTS Hilt 'ENTRENCHED GREED' IS TRYING TO REGAIN CONTROL OF U. S. IMARKET PHILADELPHIA. June 23. UP! —With an assertion that the sole issue of the coming presidential campaign was tne continuance of the new deal, Chairman Farley of the Democratic National committee today opened his party's national convention. To this he added a lashing attack upon both the nominees and the platform of the Republican party and a charge that they were the product of an effort to appear conservative in the East and liberal in the West. "Behind the Republican ticket." he added, "is the crew of the Du Pont Liberty league and their allies, which so far financed every undercover agency that lias disgraced American politics with their appeals to race prejudices, religious intolerance, and personalities so gross that they had to be repudiated even by the regular Republican organization." With these assertions he coupled extended praise for the accomplishments of the new deal and a prediction that the Democratic form would be one to which the resolutions committee couL.I commit itself "without laughing and swallow without choking." "The continuance of the new ileal is the issue,' Farliy shouted to the delegates at the very outset of his remarks. "The question before the American people is clearcut and cannnt be disguised. That question is; Shall we continue the new deal which has rescued our country from disaster and despair or shall the government be turned back to the old dealers who wrecked it? There you have the issue stripped of all camouflage." Platitudes Unsurpassed Calling upon the party for a vigorous campaign toward the goal of a tremendous Roosevelt majority he asserted "that verdict must be so overwhelming, so conclusive, so compelling that nobody can doubt that the country is united in its determination that there shall be no backward step in our progress." The platform adopted by the Republicans at Cleveland, he said was "unsurpassed in the history of party declarations for platitudes and vague promises," and again he said: "Nobody takes the Cleveland platform seriously—not even ouv political adversaries." Had the Republicans been sincere he continued they would have renominated former Presidenl Hoover who, Farley said "represents the classical attitude of their party and then we would have had a direct and frank contest before the American people of the new deal and the old deal." But they "passed him up,' Farley added, "despite his impassioned stampeding scheme which naturally failed, for you cannot stampede an elephant securely chained to the picket posts of evasion and straddling." Or, he continue,:!, the Republicans could have chosen Senator Borah. "but he was earmarked with the stigma of liberalism," he added. "So they had to find a candidate whom they could present as conservative enough to meet the specifications of the duPont Liberty leaguers in the east, while appearing fiercely liberal in the West. . . , "Even when it came to choosing their vice presidential candidate, they had to follow the same hazardous course. The larger men refused the post so they picked a gentleman, doubtless a good editor, who has never held public office; never strayed into fields other than his own business—even more widely unknown to the public than his chief." People's Government Turning 1 to the new deal and the problems just ahead, Farley said that "for three years ours has been a people's government," adding: "It is our job to keep it a pea- pie's government. "That is what I meant when I spoke of the responsibilities incident to this gathering. We know how millions have been poured ou£ to prepare the ground for an assault aimed to bring back the reeking period that piled up great fortunes for those on the inside, and finally brought the country to the verge of bankruptcy. "No pirate of the olden days chased a galleon that had escaped him more fiercely than will the backers of the Republican party pursue the enterprise of getting back the prize they held so long. "The pursuing Corsairs used whatever flag that served their purpose to close with their quarry. They did not fly the skull and cross bones banner, but raised the pennant under which the prize was sailing to disguise their plundering purpose. "Perhaps that illustrates the new plan of the Republican platform and the uniform of their captain, in the West with the epaulets of liberalism and in the East with the insignia of conservatism. "Pirates" Sailing Ship "Behind the Republican ticket is the crew of the duPont Liberty league and their allies, which have so far financed every under cover aegncy that has .disgraced American politics with their appeals to race prejudice, religious intolerance and, personalities so gross that they had to be repudiated even by the regular Republican organization. They will continue to disown these snaky assaults—and to seek to profit by them. "But the Leaguers will never gain the prize. The real ne\y deal, sane and, orderly — not wild, visionary, socialistic or communistic creation of its enemies' imagination—will NEW; YORK, June 23. i/P)—Profit realizing tripped up leading stocks in Today's market, but support appeared for many issues in late dealings.

East ol Post Office Dry Ice Gas Is Used in Making Rubber, Black The ninny uses of carbon dioxide gns. used in the manufacture of dry ice. were mentioned today by Pampa residents who are promoting the drilling- of a CO-2 well in the Estnncia valley in New Mexico. It is used in carbon black manufacture, in making n finer quality of rubber, refrigeration, air conditioning and in many other ways. Last year. Government figures show, 7.000,000 tons more of dry ice than was available could have been sold. It is claimed that the development of carbon dioxide gas will open cne of the world's largest industries. There is now only one plant in the world making dry ice from natural carbon dioxide. The well being drilled by Pampa investors is down 1,702 feet and is being drilled deeper, despite the fact that 3.000,000 feet of gas has been struck. This is by far the largest well cf Its kind that has been discovered, it was reported. Kiwanians Hold Picnic at LeFors (Continued From Page 1) Pampa and LeFors Kiwanians and their families gathered .near LeFors yester:lay afternoon for an All Kiwani.s picnic, held in connection with the InternaUomil convention, now in progress in Washington.

At the caucus today the delegates must choose ten of their number for convention assignments, the most important of which is the I platform committee. i The 100 Texans on the special train were in a jolly mood upon arrival. Behind a police escort, they were whisked across the city to their hotels, and wearing broad- brimmed Texas sombreros, milled about the lobbies for a time before going to their rooms. They brought along a special Centennial gavel to present to .Senator Robinson of Arkansas, who is expected to be permanent convention chairman. Paul Wakefleld of Austin, secretary of the delegation, said it was made of Texas mesquite, with a dried cactus handle and a Texas star on each end of the head. Myron Blalock of Marshall, chairman of the state democratic executive committee, who remained in the background of the first caucus, said Governor James V. Allred probably would reach Philadelphia today. Vice President John N. Garner also was absent, having decided to remain away from the Quaker City until his rcnomination later in the week. The Texas delegation otherwise was virtually complete. Arthur Lee Yowell, 68 year old democrat, arrived earlier in the day astride a donkey he rode out of Dallas April 20 to advertise the Centennial. After much persuasion, the management of the convention headquarters hotel permitted him to roam the first two floors to visit, among others, Gar- ni-r's headquarters.

"Take a half a cup of Friendship, add one cup of Thoughtfulness; Cream together with a pinch of powdered Tenderness, Very lightly beaten into a bowl of Loyally With one cup of Faith, one of Hope, and one of Charity; Be sure to add a spoonful each of Gaity that sings And the ability to laugh at little things; Moisten with the sudden tears of heartfelt Sympathy, And bake in a good nalured pan.

Roosevelt, shall not be interrupted." From the moment of the first call to order at 12:01 p. m. Eastern Standard time, it was clear that the controlling administration leaders were to give militant answers to the challenges coming from right and left for the campaign ahead. The first rallying oratorical flourish was from the party's National Chairman, James A. Farley, who was set in the role of preliminary keynoter. Even the far balconies took up in roaring cheers the tone of the battle. A few leaders talked platform behind locked doors downtown, a few Southerners still hunted forlornly for ways to preserve the two-thirds nominating rule—but the only apparent worries for the great majority were ticket worries. Many and rebellious were the complaints of those who could not get into the vaulted convention hall. Outwardly, at least, it was an all- Roosevelt show. But underneath ran the inevitable tide of speculation about the intention of those who have refused to go along. That it would be a Roosevelt platform was a foregone conclusion, and the renominatlon of Vice President Garner was regarded by most ns fully as certain as the president's own. An assertion in Boston by Governor James M. Curley that he would accept the vice presidential nomination if it was offered, attracted no serious attention. Governor Clyde L. Herring of Iowa, who had said he was mentioned for second place on the ticket, already had taken himself out. The introductory ceremonies today were held to an official welcome to this republican stronghold by its republican mayor, S. Davis Wilson, and bits of the entertainment to keep the convention diverted when no business is at hand. The real keynoter. Senator Berkley of Kentucky will speak tonight. Senator Wagner, fresh from conferences in Washington, was closeted with Secretary Wallace about the farm plank, but it remained uncertain whether the president would accept Wallace's proposal for crop insurance. In the end, Mr. Roosevelt is depended on to decide. Glass Absent fused reelection to the resolutions sels was Senator Carter Glass, the Virginia party patriarch, who refused election to the resolutions committee, saying he was too weary after the long congressional session at Washington. Governor Perry was chosen Virginia's representative in his stead. Missing likewise from the party's nominal general staff was another who had disagreed often with Mr. Roosevelt. The Georgia delegation refused to reeled Governor Eugene Talmadge to the national committee. Farley's speech today was offered as a sort of preliminary keynote, in praise of Roosevelt, in condemnation of his enemies. The actual keynote will be delivered at a second session tonight, by Senator Alben W. Barkley of Kentucky. The nominations and adoption of the platform come later in the week. Today's proceedings were slow, as usual, getting under way. Farley early gave up hope of beginning on schedule. Row on row of blue-leather seats remained to be filled as the official starting hour arrived and passed. While band and organ music boomed to the high vaulted roof of the auditorium, early comers looked over the setting for this 27th major decision in the history of the party since 1801. Silken flags in clusters of three dotted the silver-gray, box pleated silken border which had been strung around the first gallery rim. In between were brilliant medallions bearing the seals of the states. Seats of Honor High on the walls to right and left stood bust-length pictures of the president and vice president in black and white. The only other so honored was Thomas Jefferson, in serious profile on a background of buff-red, directly below the speaker's rostrum. Above the head of this great exponent of state's rights stood the words: "the democratic party." California and Texas, the two states that tipped the scales for the first Roosevelt nomination in 1932, had seats of honor right up front. Several Texans sported the ,.<en gallon hats adfveHising the Centennial celebration down there. Patrick J. Haltigan—the reading clerk whose stentorian voice made itself heard through those hectic Madison Square Garden ballots in 1924—was given n try-out. He had to tone down a bit because of the loud speaking system. The departure of Farley and other convention notables from their hotel headquarters two miles from the hall was made into a parade, led by a squad of motorcycle policemen—sirens shrieking wide open. The Farley entourage almost collided with another smaller parade. It was also democratic. A man dressed in the clothes of a farmer drove a hay rake through the streets. Its sides emblazoned with a sign asking Mr. Hoover the whereabouts of the grass in the streets that he mentioned in his Madison Square Garden speech In 1932.

Young's court yesterday afternoon on a charge of theft of an oil well pump belt from A. D. McNa- mia. BROOKS CRITICIZES SCHERTNER, June 23 (AP)— Pierce Brooks, campaigning for governor at the Schertner annual picnic today, criticized the Allred administration for what he said was its handling of the old age pension matter. "A year has elapsed since the people of Texas ordered these pensions paid," Brooks said. "Not one penny has been paid to anyone entitled to a pension and, as a coni.-{quence, not one penny of the available federal pension money has been received in Texas" Read The News Want-Ads.

PART OF PRESIDENT'S SUGGESTIONS ARE CARRIED OUT WASHINGTON, June 23, President Roosevelt today signed the new tax bill and the $100,000,000 interior department appropriation bill. Signing of the long controverted tax measure, designed to raise $800,000,000 through a sweeping revision of corporate taxes and other levies, cleared the president's desk of major legislation passed by the congress Just gone home. The tax act, a compromise between the house and senate, goes a long way toward carrying out suggestions by President Roosevelt for stiff levies on corporation income withheld from stockholders. Advocates of his suggestion contend it will be subject to individual Income taxes, while opponents argue it will be harmful to corporations in need of surplus. Tlie yield of the measure lias been estimated by senate and house conferees as follows; New corporation tax system $630,000,000. Changes in taxation in cases of . liquidation of corporations, $33,000,000. Tightening of law applying to taxation of "Irrevocable trusts," $20,000,000. Reduction of tax exemption of intercorporate dividends $10,000,000. Import taxes on fish and vegetable oil, $100,000,000.
