TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 5, 1938—TEN PAGES Halted Piwi (UPI PRICE 5 CENTS GOP Senators Spurn Roles In Probe Of TVA Borah, McNary Won't Serve On IO -Man Board WASHINGTON. April 5. (/Ph-Two republican senators appointed to a ten man congressional committee to investigate the Tennessee Valley Authority today declined the appointments shortly after their names were announced. They were Senator Borah (R-Idaho) and Senator McNary (R-Ore), the republican leader. The two were named by Vice President Garner to serve with Senators Donahey (D-Ohio) Brown (D-NH) and Schwartz (D-Wyo). The other five members, selected by Speaker Bankhead included Mead (D-NY), Driver (D-Ark), Thomason (D-Tex). Jenkins (R-Ohio) and Wolverton (R-NJ). Senator Borah of Idaho, criticized the size of the ten-man committee in declining to serve and said he did not believe in conducting investigations by the “town meeting method.” Senator McNary said his time was too limited to undertake the task. “I don t want to shirk by responsibilities,” the Oregonian said, "and I appreciate the confidence the vice president has reposed in me, but I have got to go home, and I won't be able to run back and forth.” OPPOSES PLAN ‘ I do not believe in investigation by town meetings.” Bcrah said. “If the senate had appointed a committee of three, or five, or it the house had named a committee of its own. the investigation would have been satisfactory, and I would have been glad to have served on such a senate committee.” The republican members named by Bankhead were recommended by House Republican Leader Snell of New York. Garner told reporters he had consulted no one, not even the appointees, before announcing the selections.    __________________________ The joint committee will make a in special session Tuesday morning t ....    ..I___   «    *    a    ai    /L.i    arf    '    not    t. .

Tempers cracked In a verbal exchange between Paul Creyssel, rightist deputy, and Minister of Interior Marx today. They rushed at each other prepared for physical violence. The chamber was thrown into an uproar and Edouard Herriott, chamber president, was forced to adjourn j the session at which Blum had presented for debate the financial bills which most observers expected to be his political death warrant, BLUM’S DEMANDS Blum demanded that the lukewarm chamber and the hostile senate vote him full decree powers. Rightists reacted at once with the charge that his program was “a plan for a Marxist (socialist) dictatorship and revolution.” The general political opinion before the struggle began in the chamber was that the bill would be passed by the chamber and voted down by the senate. Political experts accorded the premier only a slight chamber majority, however, and predicted a heavy adverse vote in the conservative upper house, bringing his automatic resignation. The premier's bill by which he hoped to attain sweeping authority contained only 80 words.

TO MURDER SCENE El p^Q Hotel Employes Will Be Questioned Area Officers Express Belief Money Is Object Of Torture In Brutal Killings EL PASO, April 5. (AP)—A posse scouring the West Texas desert today uncovered the first tangible evidences of robbery in the six-day-old torture and slaying of Mrs. Weston G. Frome, 46, Berkeley, California society matron, and her 23-year-old daughter, Nancy. District Attorney Roy Jackson announced at Van Horn that San Francisco newspapers, known to have been in the Frome luggage, were found in the mesquite along U. S. highway 80 ten miles east of Kent, Texas, in the Pecos-Balmorhea-Van Horn section where the women were last seen and near where their semi-nude bodies were found Sunday night. The papers, Jackson said, bore the date of March 23, when Mrs. Frome and her daughter .   -—• Rebels Smash Loyalists Lines Train Guns On Barcelonia And Valencia Road Weston G.

PLOT IS THEORY The luggage from the abandoned Frome car has never been found, and Sheriff Albert Anderson today had more than half a hundred men scouring the sandy reaches of Culberson county for clues. Meanwhile, El Paso officers planned to begin questioning employes of the hotel here where the women stayed for a brief visit in El Paso last week before continuing east. The interrogations grew out of concerted speculations by Sheriff Anderson, the district attorney, and Texas Ranger Pete Crawford that the Frome women were robbed and slain by some one they knew-, possibly acquaintances made in El Paso or at the border city of Juarez, i nationalist commander in planning an ultimatum Spanish ££    aff1*1    IT,,    *    ^    O'    Mrs. Weston O. chief, is    seancesTnt(    building    .    Prome    and    hpr    daughter.
