BTU, LOSES FIRST TEST By a vote of 191 to 149, the opposition leadership achieved its first objective, the postponement of a final vote on the measure, and then JOKESTERS CALLING DOG POUND FOR 'MR. BARKER' GET SERVICE; CANINE RIOT ACCOMODATES 'EM OAKLAND. Calif., April I—ijp —Jokesters who called the Oak-pound and asked for "Mr. Barker” got the surprise of their lives today. Poundmaster R. C, Trotter went to gieat pains to prepare for the scores of telephone calls received each April I, He trained*a dozen dogs to bark loudly whenever he mapped his fingers.    " When a punster called the pound and inquired for ’ Mr. Barker” Trotter gave his canine chorus the signal and the limultaneous barks, yelps and cries of the dogs nearly split the eardrum of the astonished listener. Church Support Of Nazis Draws Bomb Kills Juarez Papal Protest DOCTORS EXAMINE FATAL SERUM Calls poured In at an astonishing rate, however “I've already worn out three dogs,” Trotter laughed. Austro Bishop's Plebiscite Plea Hit By Vatican VATICAN CITY, April I—(Jp)— The Vatican radio station said to-I night, in a broadcast dealing with the Austrian bishop’s recent pastoral letter advising the faithful to support the new regime: “It is not the duty of the ecclesiastical authorities to speak of the economic, social or political suc-| cesses of a government and to meas-! ure these same successes.” There was no official comment on j the broadcast and the identity of the speaker, who delivered his statement in German, was not given. The speaker said his address should I be taken in connection with a statement published tonight by L’Osser-vatore Romano. Vatican newspaper, that the Vatican had not been consulted by the Austrian bishop before or after the pastoral letter was issued. | (The latter, read in all Catholic predicted the Mil's ultimate defeat t.    AP™    i.-    T -An administration proposal to help    in    Austria    Sunday,    asked a The ballot taken as tile result of business out of the slump by broadening lending powers of the Recon-    allegiance    to    Germany In *!__e_!?8UlL0f ■traction    Finance    Corporation    sped through The senate today    ‘he April 10 Plcbisci* °n Austro- Acting    with    speed    reminiscent of    its pace in the 1933 banking emer-    °erman union > gency. the chamber approved the measure In precisely two minutes.

While some senators obviously were unaware of what was happening; a few answered "aye” on both Senate Passes RFC Loan Bill Broader Lending Powers Approved In Exactly 2 Minutes By Voice Vote WASHINGTON, April I.—~>tP)—An administration proposal to help a parliamentary maneuver, was technically upon the question of whether or not the house should vote immediately upon a motion to end general debate on the reorganization bill. But, whatever, its technical aspects, its meaning w as so plain the motion to end debate wa* withdrawn quickly bv its maker, Chairman Cochran <D-Mo), of the reorganization committee, and in the next minute he moved the house adjourn until tomorrow. HGT DEBATE The action came after a day of seething debate and crafty parliamentary tactics, in which the opponents of the measure used every device available under the ‘‘filibuster-proof’ rules of the house to delay action. Their purpose, they repeatedly asserted, was to postpone final action until a flood of telegrams protesting against passage of the measure could have an effect upon wavering supporters of the bill. More than 50,000 telegrams were received today. Striving to offset the effect of these messages, Repress * atlve , Rayburn <D-Tex>, democratic floor leader, recalled “faked” telegrams which were sent during the battle over the public utilities holding company act. Rayburn said later he did not regard the vote of tonight as a test I of how the house would vote on the bill itself. Jubilant oppositionists contended.' however, the ballot was a clear showing of house sentiment on the bill. CHURCH LEADER School Trustees To Be Named Today Voters in a majority of Texas school districts will name trustees in elections today. In Taylor county all school districts except the Abilene independent will name from one to three trustees. Abilene elections are held at the same time as regular city plebiscites. ■Three county board members will be named in Taylor county-one at large, one from precinct I and one from precinct 2. Cc: mon school districts will each name one trustee for a three year term; common consolidated and independent districts will pick either two or three for three year terms. REV. P. I).

The corporation either could make loans, or buy securities. In addition, the bill would permit advances to state and other political subdivisions for construction projects. Under the measure, the corporation could make available SI,-500.00.000 for new lending. . Little opposition to the measure v.as expected in the house, but leaders there, busy with the Administration's government reorganization bill, have not yet set a date for consideration.

Asks Wool Contents Designation Measure WASHINGTON Tax Bill Senate Passage Forecast WASHINGTON. April I — Inaners predicted today that the senate would pass the tax revision bill by next weekend. Chairman Harrison (D-Miss) of the senate finance committee arranged to make a radio address Sunday night (CBS* outlining provisions of the measure as revised bv his committee. Eoth were left off the approved i list because of excessive pupll-j teacher loads. MORE ROOM A MI ST* Significance of the action. Prin-I cipal Byron England said, is that no graduate of Abilene school will be permitted to enter any college outside Texas which is a member of the association without passing an entrance examination. “It also means that we're going to have to have some more room,” he added, “x x x We can’t go on holding classes in underpasses.” Regulations of the Southern association limit classes to 30 students and rule that no teacher may conduct more than five classes, allowing a maximum of 150 pupils per teacher. When he forwarded his report to the association in October, England said, there were 99 classes violating the restriction. That total did not include physical training and glee club units, he added. H. S. Fatherree, assistant superintendent of the city school system, said omission from the approved list had been threatened for the past five or six years. Both officials reported that several leachers have been required to instruct as many as six of the over-size classes. Enrollment at the high school is 1.850 students. The faculty has 65 members. Supt. L. E. Dudley could not be reached for a statement. He was in Lubbock to attend a conference of West Texas educators. Their discussion was expected to center on the 12-grade school system proposed in Texas.
