GULF STORM WARNINGS A short time later the Icy blast struck Amarillo, tumbling the thermometer 27 degrees In an hour. At IO p.m. the reading was 25 with a 22 to 35 mile an hour wind blowing. The disturbance caused the United States weather bureau at New Orleans to order up southwest1 •to* ai *■.«.:    from    Pensacola. Fla., to Brownsville, Tex. Meanwhile, in East Texas where much destruction was threatened by floodways, particularly by the Sa- j bine river, the situation was aile- j via ted when the streams began to recede. The Trinity river in North Texas alse was falling after sev- J eral days of rampagng. 50 DEGREES HERE Baskng in 50-degree weather, Abilene remained skeptical early this morning of a cold wave forecast and livestock warnings. It did so in the face of Weatherman W\ H, Green s prediction for cloudy weather, with probably local rains and a wintry onslaught Sunday. The meteorologist himself minimized that forecast. “I don’t think there!! be any severe blizzard,” he said. Green predicted that the weekend s lowest temperature probably would be about 25 degrees. The minimum so far this winter has been 20 degrees. It appeared likely that Abilene’s severest weather of the current spell would not arrive before Sunday afternoon or night. Weatherman Green deemed the possibility of rain slight. Plea of not qullty was entered by lt,s ^ adornment.

Investigating the feasibility community client for Abilene, Vacancy Claim Stood On Own Merits He Says Testimony Tops Fourth Day Of Senate Inquiry AUSTIN, Jan. 29—<A*)—B. A. “Jerry” Adams of Tyler admitted to a senate investigating committee today he lied when he represented to M. H. Hackney of Longview that he could obtain Land Commissioner William H. McDonald’s approval of vacancy claim whereas Hackney could not. I told him I had some ‘pull’ down here in Austin but I had none,” Adams testified. *1 wanted to make a deal with Hackney giving my employer, M A. Eldred of Tyler, an interest in the lease in question. FAVOR NOT NEEDED "Anyone could have obtained approval of the vacancy claim because It was meritorious.” In other words,” persisted Sen. T. J, Holbrook of Galveston, chairman of the committee, "you told He when you told Hackney he con Id n’t get the vacancy, didnt you?” Yes, I did.” Adam* answered. Adams admission was the high light of the fourth day of a senate committee’s inquiry Into McDonald’s land policies. An oil lease on an Upshur county tract was the question Involved, Eldred, who went to Hackney’s office with Adams, had testified earlier that after the conference he told Adams the latter should not have made the representations to Hackney which he made. got quick action Hackney had told the committee two da vs ago the re presen ta tim was made to him Eldred and Adams could obtain approval of the v»-, Caney Cairn within ten days. The genera] land office approved it four I days after the contract was signed i between Eldred and Hackney, who was acting as agent for W. T Box of Wichita Falls, the original vacancy claimant. Eldred testified he did not promise to get the vacancy within ten days and that the contract was an optional one—he was to get an interest in the 2.6 acre lease if the claim was allowed within ten days but otherwise the contract was void. Committeemen questioned Eldred at length about his visit to Cisco in McDonald's home county to se# N. D. Gallagher, an oil man and uncle of an employe of the state of land department.

Sanger of Abilene is hoping to find a meteorite as a souvenir of the spectacle he witnessed Friday night. He describes the night of a meteor through the sky, so close that he believes meteories will be found not far from Abilene. Sanger was returning from Callahan county, on the old Potosi road—he was south of the old Watsonville comer traveling toward Abilene. It was shortly after 7 o’clock. “A light almost blinded me. A ball of fire was rushing horizontally across the sky to the south. I had to look back at the road, and when I raised my eyes again the blaze had started downward, almost immediately hitting the ground and exploding. Violet and green lights streaked upward." "It looked like the meteor had struck the ground between where I was and the Cedar Gap mountain, probably very close to the mountains. Sanger said he had witnessed the flight of several meteors— but never a sight like that Friday night. He was about 7 1-2 miles from Abilene, southeast of Lake Kirby, ...ii 11, win,I. on th, co**..,    bu    t    "to    The*    r    •    vV    w *>•" he'vew    esta bushment    of ‘he projects.

RY DALE HARRISON NEW YORK, Jan. 29 —(/P)— What memories Charles A. Lindbergh might find next Friday were he sentimentalist enough to sit with a birthday cake before him and read the incredible biography the 36 sputtering candles could write! See the first candle! In Detroit a baby is bo®. Ifs just an ordinary baby. Then comes the candles of the Minnesota years — Congressman Lindbergh’s kid; a long-boned boy trudging through adolescence, bringing home report cards that would never set any schoolhouse on rue.      — I Brightest of all burns that which. With fire for ink, writes of that year 1927. Lindbergh could hardly relive that memory without knowing it for what it was: world drama and world history. JUST ’SLIM’ THEN He didn’t have much money. He wasn't particularly outstanding as an airman. He was Just “Slim,” an uncommunicative aviator, gambling his life for a $25,000 pot of gold. All he had to do was fly from New York to Paris. All he had to gain was $25,000— and fame. All he had to lose was his life. He flew into the dawn. VIKIN G OF 1927—LINDY, 36 NEXT FRIDAY Mayor Resigns Lindberg lives today, his 36th birthday just ahead. The bright candle tells it all— of the plane swooping genth to earth at Le Bourget field while Frenchmen cheered: and of the bare-headed. twentieth century Viking who sailed the skies instead of the seas, climbing from hLs cockpit, and saying; “I am Charles Lindbergh.” One candle burns for love and marriage. One tells of an aerial voyage of Lindbergh and Mrs Lindburgh to the far east, and of near disaster in a Chinese stream. BLACK CANDLES Then come the black candles: 1932, with the unprecedented horror of kidnaping .suspense, soul torture, and—at last—the broken, wasted body of Charles A Lindbergh Jr. The candles bum on and tell of Lindbergh slipping away in the night aboard a freighter to seek abroad surcease from the notoriety his daring flight had brought. Lindbergh, like Atlas and his world, has not been able to rid himself of his burden. He could not escape. He would not answer phones. He avoided public places, he shunned attention. Stubbornly and doggedly he clung to this premise: “I have a right to live mv own life ’ HIS OWN IDEA But that, as the candles will tell him if he reads them aright next Friday, Isn t so easy. The world says; “Flying to Paris was your own idea. Because you did this most spectacular thing, we shall always be interested in what you do.” And if the Colonel views his birthday cake philosophically next Friday, perhaps he will take thought that though there are black candles, the white ones burn brightest: and that there is room on tile cake for many, many more to bum as bravely and brilliantly as any that blaze there now. ALBUQUERQUE. N M, Jan. 29 — .-P)—Professing his innocence of any criminal violations, Charles H. Lembke resigned today as Albuquerque mayor and city commissioner in the wake of charges he embezzled more than $12,000 of city funds and speculated in municipal indebtedness. Denying Guilt, Couple Nabbed In Atlanta For Mail Theft Agree To Return To Texas Sentenced To Death DALLAS, Jan. 29 —— Edward S. Winn, 24-year-old licensed transport pilot, was given death in the electric chair today for the killing of William L. Presley, bakery employe, here last Nov. 20. Winn, whose home is at Columbus, Ind., had pleaded insanity. His attorneys indicated they would appeal. The state contended the motive was ATLANTA, Jan 29 —JPh— A smartly-dressed rouple arrested at the airport for questioning in the disappearance of $28,950 from a railway mail car in Texas last fall emphatically denied implication today and agreed to return to Texas for a hearing. They had approximately $4,300 on their' persons. Giving their names as Sidney Miller, 30, and his wife, Helen Miller, 23. the two were held for Fort Worth postal inspectors after failing to make bond. The man and woman waived examination before U. S. Commissioner E. S. Griffin. “I deny the charges absolutely.” the scholarly-looking Miller said. He added he lived in Dallas, and made his living buying and selling oil leases and royalties. City detectives quoted Miller as saying “I can show where every dime of the money found on my wife and me came from. A goodly portion of it was borrowed from friends after I left Dallas about two weeks ago.” Four other Texans ar#* under federal charges in the case. DALLAS. Jan, 29 —<JP)— Captain C. W, B. Long, Dallas postal inspector, left tonight by air for Atlanta to return Sidney Miller and his wife Helen, to Dallas where they will be examined by a federal grand jury in connection with a mail pouch robbery near O’Donnell, Texas, three weeks ago. The mail pouch disappeared mysteriously from a mail ear. ;
