April 19.—(ZP)— County officers here today watched every exit from Fort Worth and systematically patrolled all streets in an effort to capture Howard Pierson, 23, escaped killer of his parents. Supreme Court Justice and Mrs. William Pierson. Twice in pre-dawn hours he was seen here by a Hillsboro filling station operator who met and knew him well shortly before the crime that shocked the southwest in April, 1935. Each time, Pierson — wearing a two-day growth of beard—disappeared before police arrived. Searching divulged no clews.

Glass, chairman of the senate ap- j propriations committee, said he; would support President Roosevelt's recommendation for $1,250,000,000 for relief, but would not vote for a $1,000,000,000 fund to provide public works loans and grants to cities and states.

MISSING Hunt For Kin Of Carnegie Vain Mystery Clings Tightly After Disappearance Navy Airplane Fund Opposed By Senators Present 2,050 Planes Sufficient Says Senator Nye WASHINGTON, April 19.—(AF*)— Senate opponents of the $1,156,000,-000 naval expansion bill attempted I today to kill an authorization for 950 additional navy airplanes. Chairman Walsh (D-Mass) of the senate naval committee, starting debate on the floor, expressed confidence, however, of overwhelming approval. Senator Nye (R-ND), one of the principal foes, contended that the navy's present 2,050 planes are sufficient and that land-based aircraft are more effective for defense purposes. A proposed minority report from the naval committee cited test!- I mony by Major General O. West- ; over, chief of the army air corps, that an increase in naval aircraft would ‘‘seriously disturb the existing distribution of the nation's aerial resources." Senator Bone (D-Wash), a member of the committee, said he was preparing some "observations” on the financial outlay. The senate committee increased the authorization $35,000,000 above the $1,121,-000.000 approved by the house. As approved by the senate committee, the bill authorizes construction of 46 warships, including three 45,000-ton battleships, two 20.000-ton aircraft carriers, nine cruisers, 23 destroyers and nine submarines. The naval bill went to the sen Italy, Franee Agree To Try For Accord Restoration Of Friendship Is Objective MRS. FO AT YESTERDAY S EGG ROLL I- ^ Up bright and early, Mrs. Franklin D.

(ZP)—Italy and France decided today to undertake friendship talks without waiting for appointment of an ambassador to Rome, and a source close to the French foreign office said the question of extending ‘‘international cooperation" to include the United States and Britian would be studied. Inclusion of the United States would be discussed during the visit April 28 of Premier Daladier and Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet to London, it was said. Though no specific questions were placed on the agenda it was indicated the entire scope of diplomatic, financial and economic collaboration would be considered. Jules Blondel, French charge d’affaires in Rome, consulted with Foreign Minister Count Galleazzo Ciano today and it was agreed to begin conversations for a general settlement of problems between the two countries immediately.
