A hearing has been set for next Friday at 10 o'clock. ames A. Mills Dies (Continued From Page One) thought with that slow, engaging smile of his, as though death were the least of his worries. As a matter of fact I believe it was, for he had faced it many times in very terrible forms, and we shall think ot him as meeting it with his captivating grin. , U would be difficult to name a spot outside the poles which Jim Mills hadn't visited, written about :ind photographed. Indeed, his friend Mahatma Gandhi /once remarked that when he reached the Pearly Gates the first person he expected to see would be reporter'Mills, looking for a story. I guess the Mahatma spoke a greater truth than he <realied when he made his little joke. Covered Many Wars Mill<; had reported revolution and numerous wars, in Europe, in Eth/.opia, in China and where not. He knew his North and South America as you know your front yard. He had sliced his way through the heart of Africa. Europe, India, all the Far East were an open book to him. All that, of course, made a wealth of grist for his number-keyed typewriter, but of far greater worth was his understanding of the peoples and political affairs of the countries in which he traveled. Jim knew so many kings and queens and other royalty in his time that the story of these associations would fill an entrancing book. However, the most notable of these seems to me to be his long and great friendship with the royal family of Rumania, and in particular with the late Queen Marie, who during the years when her husband was on the throne was the real ruler. That friendship between the newspaperman and the queen always seemed to me io be a very wonderful relationship. So strong was her regard for him and so great her trust in his judgment that time and again she sent for him to travel long distances to help her solve some troublesome affair- of state such as could develop only in the mystic Balkans. There seems to be no reason why I shouldn't acid that I am sure that'there existed a very real affection between the brilliant and dynamic queen and the quiet spoken newspaperman. That friendship lasted until she died. I don't know how many times Mills was decorated by his royal friends, but had he ever worn his honors he would have looked like a bandmaster on p.arad\e. Anyway, it didn't matter, for Jim always stuck each new bauble away in a box as a souvenir, and just grinned. Decorations weren't his hobby. . • City Commission (Continued From Pagj One) ordinance providing for the paving of the following streets: Washington avenue from Twentieth to Twenty-second streets; Van Buren avenue from Ninteenth to Twenty- second; V from Ninth to Tenth- Fifth from J to K; and Twenty- fifth from G- to H.

Soil Conservation Leaders Hold Meet -, „.„ federal soil conservation officials discussed problems facing their various organizations at an all-day session at Texas Technological college Friday. Approximately 70 persons were in attendance, representing tarm- ers of the area and officials from over the entire state. Reports of the various district supervisors highlighted the informs.! session. And although no definite action was taken, it was agreed that the chief problems facing the soil building leaders at present were three fold: Sack of funds, need for additional technical help and a shortage of heavy and modern equipment for terracing and other such work. Interest Is High However, though it was admitted that these problems were hindering efforts, all parties concerned reported more interest in soil conservation work than at any time previous in the history of the project.

Heating oil consumption'in 1940 totaled 160,379,000 barrels. U.S. Tea Supply fs Restricted (By The United Pressi' WASHINGTON, March 27. — Because of uncertainties over future imports from ..the 'far cast, the War Production board today restricted distribution of the nation's entire .tea supply. Effective immediately, tea packers are required to cut their monthly deliveries to half the monthly average of last year. The same reduction applies to wholesalers, chain firms and others buying from-the packers. A record supply of 48,000,000 pounds — more than six-month supply—was on hand Jan. 1.
