The senate lobby committee eiard- InMtlon of Howard C. Hopsott be- came-stormy and.'heated-'todSSriO' the questioning turned to the utility head's profits from the Associated Qasvand Electric system. Chairman Black frequently de- manded that he answer the ques- tions, once warning that If he did- n't the Issue would "be carried to the senate." To this hint of contempt action, Hopson retorted this committee was not trying to get "all the truth" but only half truths. Commltteemen placed In the rec- ord-evidence they said'showed Hop- son had received "hidden profits" from a private company which sold services to units of the Associated system. They contended he had received paid by the company to Edward J. Cheney, an associate een- gjneer. Hopson said he did not know the books showed but Insisted thmt officers, directors and employes of the Associated Gas knew he-add Cheney were partners in the busi- ness. Senator SchweUenbach (D-Wash) who was questioning Hopson on this phase of the Inquiry, asked'if he had Invested more than in the company. Hopson was Indignant at t h e question, but refused to swear he had Invssied more. The hearing was recessed with Hopson directed to return for fur- ther questioning tomorrow. After the session, Senator Schwel- lenbach told newspapermen he had no doubt the stockholders of Asso- ciated were entitled to recover what he called the "hidden profits" of Hopson. NAZI REBUKE PLAYED DOWN Press Glosses Over Talk B Reichsbank Head BERLIN, Aug. sting Ing rebuke to window-smashing Jew-baiters by Dr. HJalmar Schacht president of the reichsbank, was ;oday withheld from the masses of Georman people. The official German news bureau which supplies newspapers with ,exts of speeches made by members of the government glossed over Schacht's warning that antl-Sem- tes "Inflamed and undisciplined actions" against Jews constitute a erlous menace to Germany's busi- ness. Instead, the papers high-lighted Schacht's assertion that "there is no better Investment than placing one's iavlngs at the disposal of the relch is a loan for a job creation pro- gram."

Louis Scala, League City shrimp fisherman, today faced a charge of j murder in connection with the drowning of his baby daughter, whose body was found in Clear creek Saturday. Scala was accused of throwing the baby, one of twins inst February, into the water after a family quarrel Thursday in a di- rect accusation in a statement made by his wife. Justice of the Peace Emil Schenk of League City said he had re- turned a verdict of Jeath by drowning at the hands of the fath- er. Scala left home Thursday In a boat, taking his belongings with him, and he was arrested last night as he returned to his Clear cresk boathouse. An autopsy on the body of his daughter was ordered and a hear- ing for Scala tentatively was set for Wednesday. Auf.

The Mnate today passed the Frazler-Lemke farm mortgage bul without a roll call. It now goes to the house. WASHINGTON, Aug. A weary congress was held grimly at the legislative grindstone today by the White House. President Roosevelt insisted on enactment of a 11 point "must" program, Includ- ing the utility holding company bin before It adjourns. While Senate Majority Leader Joseph T, Robinson predicted after last night's conference of leaden with President Roosevelt that con- gress could adjourn this week, oth- ers were not so hopeful. The president's legislative 'adjut- ants had the following list of "must" bills to enact Into law before ad- journment: 1. The public utility holding com- pany bill. 2. The Guffey coal bill (passed to- day by the 3. The tax bill. 4. The banking bill. 5. TVA legislation. 6. Alcohol control bill. 7. Government contract bill. 8. Railroad reorganization. 9. Oil compact ratification. 10. Gold clause bill. 11. Third deficiency bill. Congress Is in an impatient mood and will not relish any great amount of work. To prevent a stampede of legisla- tors away from Washington leaders planned to hold the tax bill confer- ence report In abeyance until after most of their "must" list had been accomplished. Most of the bills can be put through easily. The holding com- pany and Guffey bills offer serious problems for New Deal leaders, however. There is considerable senate op- position to the Guffey bill and its fate is problematical. long Torn' Connally Is 58, But Has To Be'Reminded It's His Birthday WASHINGTON, Aug.

"All the indices of business show things are picking up." he said. "There are still a lot of grouchy people like the woman who thlnkg she has rheumatism, but can't lo- cate the piiin."
