Her father, Anthony Daugelass, a butcher, expressed the opinion that it was "for the ad- vertising." Dr. Meyer asked tho girl a num- ber of questions to determine her general knowledge. Joyce said she did not know who was governor of Illinois or mayor qf Chicago and turns of 23S of the 252 counties in the state including 5C complete, had been tabulated by the Texas Elec- tion Bureau this morning. The vote then' stood: Moody Ferguson 060; Davidson Wilman's 3, 6SS; Zimmerman and John- ston Moody must maintain his majority to win the nomination, as Texas law provides a run-off primary shall be held if no candidate receives a cleat- majority in the first primary.

Moody's brightened prospects for un- opposed nomination stimulated re- newed conjecture today as to whether Mrs. Ferguson will execute her promise to resign if Moody lends her by one vote in tho first primary. Her offer was contingent on Moody's agreement to resign as attorney general if she should lead him by votes and he ac- cepted. Husband Confident Foraer Governor James E.

He classed law enforcement as ie "moral problem of the nd the conservation of natural rc- ources as the greatest economic problem in the United States. "In dealing with law enforcement there must be no twilight zone between state and federal authority where the enemies of society might hide themselves and escape punish- he said. "Neither can we suffer the state-made nullification of our national constitution, whether under the guise of a state referen- dum or by the faillure of tile state to exercise its coordinate powers. "I have, no sympathy with the view which regards every new use of the federal power as necessarily an usurpation of rights properly be- longing to the states. The recent outburst against President Coolidge's order on the cooperative use of state and local authorities in law enforce- ment is a typical example. Fed- eral and state action should be .co- hostile." Although the governor was sche-. duled to speak particularly on the subject of state finances, he vented his feelings largely on other ques- tions.
