Allee finally agreed, but he said It was -only on the advice of my counsel” that he was going to do it.  The grand jury has called a series of persons who saw or were involved in a courthouse scuflle Monday between tieorge B. Parr. South Texas political leader, his nephew, Duval County Sheriff Archer Parr, and .Allee a n d i Bridge.    i  Threatened Death    !  It has al.so heard .Manuel Marro-quin, who has charged George Parr carried a pistol near a meeting of Freedom Party members last week, and said Parr threatened to kill him.

He was a«;ked to take off his pi.stol. He re-lused.  Distfrict Attorney Raeburn Xorris and O. P. Carrillo, Norris' assistant. conferred with I.aughlin.  The grand jury filed into the district courtroom and foreman John Disbro of Premont a.skcd Laughlin to make Bridge take off his gun.  -Allee told the court that if was under his orders Bridge did not remove his gun.  Laughlin asked why.  Not Customary ‘‘It's not customary.” Allee .said. Then Allee said he thought the whole thing «the grand jury questioning« was for “spite and prej-  and he said he thought the district attorney had “orders".  Laughlin asked Norris if he had anything to say.  “I certainly do,” Norris said.  He asked that “Capt. Allee be held in contempt of court and that he be placed in county jail until he made bond.”  “I'm not going to the county jail.” Allee said.

STRICTLY TEACHER PAY  Martin Hiis Depression 'Eggheads'  PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 23 J»! —  House Speaker Joseph W. Martin Jr. charged tonight that left-wing “eggheads” are “trying to promote us into hard time for political reasons.”  Their aim, he declared, is “to lead us into Socialism.”  Ill a .speech prepared for the Philadelphia Real E.state Board, the Massachusetts Republican said that despite pessimistic statements of alarmists, “there i.s not a valid economic sign today . . . pointing to anything like the unemployment of 1949-50, w'hen these people were so silent.”  Period of Readjustment Martin said the nation i.s now going thrtiugh a period of readjustment and today’s unemployment figure of 2,000,000 “may vary upward in the next few months.”  “Despite this period of transition.” he added, “the year 1953 just finished was the most prosperous in the history of our country, and the fact is, there are 62 million American civilians at work today at gainful occupations.”  Martin's speech was billed in advance by his office as a major address, with a nationwide broadcast arranged over facilities of the American Broadcasting Co.

Jan. 23 i.t*—Gov. Allan Shivers set his sights today on mid-March as the time for a special legislative session on the $402 teacher pay rai.se propo.sal.  He urged that permanent financing of the salary increase be accomplished at that time.  The session call will be limited strictly to the pay plan and its financing until the lawmakers dispose of that matter.

The compromise—worked out by a 25-member group representing Shivers and the TST.A—calls for a $402 Increase in the teachers’ minimum pav scale and adopts a new approach to financing.  Instead of pa.ving a fixed 45 million dollars a year to support the minimum foundation program of education, local school districts wuld pay 20 per cent. This would leave 80 per cent of the burden on the state.  Reciprocally, the state would assume roughly 20 per cent of the cost of school construction, something it has not done in the past. The state’s contribution in thi.s field would be made indirectly by giving school di.stricts a credit of S100 ner teacher against what the district is supposed to put in the minimum foundation program.  “I will be hopeful that the Legi.s-lature adopts that (program l,” Shivers said.  “Then we can all work together to build the Texas public school  system into the finest public school system in the nation.*  Cost of a $402 boost would be approximately 23*2 million dollars. If the Supreme Court upholds the gas pipeline tax. more than that amount would be freed for immediate use, but the tax rate would not be sufficient to meet the continuing and rising cost of later years.  'Whatever the tax source relied upon by the Legislature, Shiver.s thought the long-range problem should be met now, not at a later session.  “If we are going to authorize that expense. I think we ought to raise the rate this session. The sound thing to do would-be to finance the increase permanently,” he declared.  The possibility of Increasing omnibus tax rates, as was done four years ago to finance a state hospital building program, is being studied. Shivers* said in reply to a question.

Dickenson was accused of unlawful deal-irigs with the enemy and currxing favor with his Communist captors to the detriment of fellow’ prisoners.  No Ust Waiting Once that announcement got out. 1 the Defen.se Department figured it was no use bolding the Marine Corps back. So the Corps announced today that a court of inquiry had been formed to investigate the case of Col. Frank H. Schwable, a Marine Air officer who made a false confession, while prisoner of war. about participating in germ warfare. He renounced the confession after his release in the Korean War exchange.  While some Army spokesmen! continued to insist today that their Dickenson announcement had been^ cleared with the Defense Depart-; ment. officials of that department. expressed surprise and concern / I ahout it.  No Statement    f  The department, it was said, had i intended that no statements concerning anv actions against re-, turned prisoners should be madej until the cases of 21 Americans still sticking in a pro-Red camp in Korea had been cleared up. Those 21 soldiers, w ho wanted to stay with their Communists captors, are at Panmunjom. where they had been brought w?ith other prisoners for disposition under the truce agreement. But the Communists .so far have refused to accept them back.  .American psychological warfare experts wante<l to encourage all of the remaini^ 21 Americans to leave communism voluntarily and return. This would give the United States a 100 per cent .score in getting back its people, as compared with the 22.000 North Koreans and Chinese former war prisoners who have refused to go back to communism.

And he indicated he won’t be surprised if he is arrested himself.  “Each of these cases will ba judged on its own merits." Batchelor said calmly. “I think I know why they are going to try the other man.”  He refused to say more about Dickenson — who preceded Batchelor out of the pro-Red camp at Song-Gong — or even call him by name.
