This was the remnant of what a veteran weatherman called the worst dust storm in the state’s history. The winds that swept the dust cloud across Texas, sometimes at hurricane force, pushed on into Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico. A pilot who risked taking off in the storm was found dead Saturday in his crashed plane near Cleburne. SAND REMAINS Robert L. Boylen, about 40. of San Antonio and Dallas disappeared in the dust storm on a flight between the two cities in his private plane late Friday. A farmer found his body in the crashed plane, about 17 miles southeast of Cleburne, Saturday morning. The black duster Friday reduced visibility to zero at many points, closed schools, brought early darkness and tangled traffic of all kinds.

The sandstorm approximated some of the worst in the history of the Abilene country and reminded of those during the dust-bowl period in the 1930s. A man who has had official ob- «ervance of weather here since 1909 reported Business was practically at a standstill and some merchants closed their stores. Despite the obscured streets, motorists proceeded with both eyes wide open and slowly, which reduced possibility of collisions.

The gale-like wind blew far east to harass traffic and blackout cities like Dallas and Fort Worth. Height of the storm was between 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. when visibilty was one-eighth of a mile, the Weather Bureau reported. The dust began clearing after 4:30, so that by 8 p.m. visibility had risen to three miles. But dust persisted to hang in the heavens far into Saturday, settling and coating cars, sidewalks, roofs and porches.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. M—'The state highway patrol reported at least five persons were injured early today when a tornado ripped into the town of Sumrall, Miss., about 15 miles northwest of Hattiesburg in Lamar County. Four women were admitted to the hospital in Hattiesburg. One man was hurt but did not require hospitalization. The highway patrol said it was believed that no one was killed. The tornado struck at 12:35 a.m. A number of homes were said to be destroyed or damaged. Later this morning the tornado dipped down six miles west of Laurel, Miss., causing considerable property damage, the highway patrol said. No one was reported injured. Three tornadoes yesterday hit rural areas, destroying homes and farm buildings er bureau chief, said the storm that billowed down from the Midwest was the worst duster in Texas history. High wines and turbulence that accompanied the dust spawned a tornado in the Conroe area gear Houston, caused damages amounting to several thousand dollars, and injured at least five persons. One Death Blamed Police blamed a fatal two - truck collision near Amarillo on blinding dust that shrouded the Panhandle city. J. M. Fowler, 23, of Amarillo was killed, a companion was critically injured, and the driver of the second truck was hospitalized. Visibility was near zero at the time of the head-on crash. The pilot of a Navy jet plane, after making unsuccessful efforts to land at dust-hidden Hensley Field at Dallas, turned his craft away from the teeming city and bailed out in Northeast Texas. The smashed jet was found near Emory, Rains County, about 90 miles from Hensley. The pilot’s ’chute let him down safely near Sulphur Springs, about 75 miles from Dallas. The pilot, Lt. Francis Anchors, 32, was on a ferry flight from Norfolk, Va., to San Diego, Calif., when his fuel ran low in the Dallas vicinity. “I thought I would never get down,” he sighed. Snow Hurries mingled with the choking dust in the Panhandle and a c r o s West Texas. Thunderstorms, some violent, soaked East Texas points. Stiff Winds Blow High winds, approaching hurricane force, knocked down utility poles and huge trees. The Conroe tornado dipped to the ground three times. The little oil city’s country club was damaged, a tavern and residence were flattened, and five other houses were damaged. A house-mover, Douglas Rowe, 39, apparently was the most seriously Injured. He suffered chest injuries, a broken leg, broken shoulder, cuts and bruises. Soil conservation service officials warned that the high winds and severe drought could result in severe erosion. They said, however, that another dust bowl like that in the 30s was unlikely. The Texas Highway Department reported that the main highway between Dalhart and Texline was closed by drifting snow, dust and high winds. Civilian aviation was almost at a standstill as the dust shut down airports from one end of the state to another. Auto traffic slowed down to a slow pace and traffic jams ensnarled thousands across Texas. The dust storm apparently reached its worst phase around quitting time in business and industry. Bus Service Killed High winds knocked out trolleybus service in Dallas by blowing a metal roof section onto wires that burned in two when they were short circuited. The 45 stalled trolley-buses, loaded with going-home passengers, tangled traffic for two hours. The bus passengers, most of them, had gone to work Friday morning in a driving rainstorm. It was dark as night in Dallas nearly two hours before sunset. Similar conditions were reported in nearly every section. Amarillo turned its street lights on early la the day. “We are in a complete blackout,” an Amarillo newspaperman told the Associated Press. “Street lights are on and cars are barely creeping. It’s like midnight.” An early morning windstorm destroyed a city-owned garage at Gorman. Three residences were damaged. Small buildings were destroyed. And one man was slightly injured. Forecasts called for slightly cooler weather over all the state Saturday, except in the Panhandle 1 where little change was expected. WASHINGTON m — A furious row over a Senate subcommittee’s publicizing of 10 unevaluated charges against Chief Justice Earl Warren boiled up today in a demand the same group immediately give Warren a favorable vote. The Senate judiciary subcommittee considering Warren’s nomination to the post he already occupies under an interim appointment meets again today at 9:30 a.m. CST. Sen. Watkins (R-Utah). who protested the subcommittee’s airing of the charges at an open session yesterday and denounced them as “a lot of tommyrot,” said he would ask for a vote to send the nomination to the full Judiciary Committee for approval. The nomination, submitted Jan. 11 by President Eisenhower, requires Senate approval. No senator has announced intention of voting against confirmation. At the President’s vacation headquarters in Palm Springs, Calif., yesterday, Press Secretary James C. Hagerty declined to discuss the developments. At a meeting yesterday, called by Chairman Langer (R-ND), the subcommittee publicly spread on the record charges it said lt had received. Among these were allegations that Warren had followed the Marxist line, had appointed dishonest judges to office, and had been under the control of “a notorious liquor lobbyist.” At Langer’s direction, subcommittee counsel Wayne Smithey read into the record a summary by the subcommittee staff of 10 charges made by persons who opposed Warren’s nomination. Smithey said the staff had not tried to establish the truth or falsity of the charges but only listed those which, if true, “would appear to be within the investigatory jurisdiction of the committee.” Watkins and Senate Republican Leader Knowland of California interposed protests against this procedure, and the open, television- filmed meeting soon afterward broke up in a row. Knowland later called the proceedings “the most shocking event I have observed in my eight years in the Senate.” Vice President Nixon, also of California, said in a statement to newsmen that the charges against Warren were “completely fantastic and patently false.” State Acts to Boot j*.: .* ... . ’ • ’ .

The Tartar family promised to do all in their power to track down cruel pranksters who sent a fake telegram which read: “Hello Pop. Will be home Thursday. Dick.” Army Skips Deadline Set by Sen. McCarthy WASHINGTON UPV-A deadline set by Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) came and went last night without Army action demanded by the Senator in a case involving a man he has labeled a Communist. McCarthy laid down a 24-hour ultimatum Thursday night that the Army produce the names of all personnel who had anything to do with the promotion and honorable discharge of Dr. Irving Peress, a reserve dentist. Peress at a New York hearing refused to answer 33 questions about possible Communist activities and connections, invoking the constitutional guarantee against self-incrimination. “Either the Army will give the names of men coddling Communists,” McCarthy said, “or we will take it before the Senate and attempt to have cited for contempt those responsible for a shameful situation. . . Demos Unite Behind Income Tax Slash By JOE HALL    i    era tic    senators    would    go    along WASHINGTON (JV-Democrats |    with George “and a lot    of Repub- in Congress massed jubilantly to-'beans,    too.” He    asked    not    to be day behind a new proposal to cut    Quoted    by individual income taxes. Republicans, conscious of its political implications. approached the issue warily. The fresh proposal to provide new tax relief by boosting personal exemptions was sprung unexpectedly yesterday by Sen. George (D-Ga), ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee which handles tax bills. George suggested that toe personal exemption be raised from toe present $600 to $800 this year and to $1,000 next year. He said he viewed such action as a necessary anti-recession measure. The George proposal goes much farther than a like idea sponsored by Democratic members of the House Ways and Means Committee. These House Democrats suggested that the personal exemption be hiked to $700—but they were beaten 15-10 by the Republican majority on toe committee which now is busy overhauling the nation’s tax structure. A number of House Democrats have made it plain they will fight for their plan when the tax revision bill reaches the floor in about two weeks. They hailed toe George proposal and said it would make their battle an easier one. Tax legislation must originate in toe House. The George proposal, however, could be added to toa tax revision measure when it comes to toe Senate. Aids Large Families The George plan would be of most help to large families and those with low income. It has been estimated to cost toe Treasury about iVt billion dollars this year and eight billions next yadr. Accordingly, it would complicate the Eisenhower administration’s budget-balancing problems. Under toe Eisenhower tax program, the deficit for the fiscal year ending June 30 would be about $3,300,-000,000 and about $2,900,000,000 next year. The George plan would more than double toe deficit now anticipated for next year, unless some offsetting measures were adopted. But George said in an interview he is not as concerned about balancing the budget as he is about fighting unemployment and a business decline. One key senator said he is confident nearly hit fellow Demo- name. Republican comment was guarded. But some GOP senators said this session would see some additional benefits enacted for individual income taxpayers, through a boost in personal exemption or in other ways George said his proposal actually would not mean a net revenue loss of 4Vi billion this year. He explained he would substitute the personal exemption increase for some of the other tax relief measures in the revision bill now being drafted by toe House Ways and Means Committee. These have been defended by Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey and others as necessary to give incentives to business and investors. They include stepped-up depreciation benefits for corporations and relief for what has been termed double. taxation of stockholders’ dividends. The administration plan also includes some relief for nonbusiness taxpayers, but nothing so sweeping as George proposed. As toe deadline passed last night, an Army official at toe Pentagon in Washington said the Army would have no statement on the McCarthy demand and would stand on a letter written to the senator by Secretary of the Army Robert T. Stevens earlier in the week. The Army has held previously that Peress had been promoted I from captain to major prior to hts I honorable discharge Feb. 3 in accordance with the law. Peress was (o have been returned to civilian status in the spring, but he was let out earlier at his own request and with toe Army’s approval. Peress, now practicing dentistry in Elmhurst, Queens, N.Y., was called to a hearing before McCarthy, the only member of the seven - man Senate investigations subcommittee present. He is chairman of the group. McCarthy said Peress had been given a “hurry up discharge” and that records “available last April showed he was a Communist party leader.” In the letter to which the Army official referred, Stevens said McCarthy’s suggestion that Peress be recalled to stand court martial on charges of conduct unbecoming an officer was "impracticable.” Stevens said he knew of no way to reverse separation of an officer from the service, an action he said is final. Furthermore, Stevens said the Army does not have facts on which to base “sound charges,” except for Peress’ refusal to answer questions put to him by the subcommittee. However, he told McCarthy he has asked the Army’* inspector general to look into the case. But in the future, Stevens said, any reserve officer who refuses to answer questions on loyalty matters “when properly asked” will have to give up his com mis sion and be discharged “under conditions other than honorable.** Molotov Goes Home BERLIN Soviet Foreign Minister V.

Irwin, Columbus, Tex., first vice president, and Frank Alderdice, Dallas, second vice president. fore Dist. Judge C. Woodrow Laughlin <10 a.m., CST*. It was just a part of a multipronged case that now has two federal court hearings scheduled and investigations into Duval County and school district affairs by two federal agencies, the attorney general and state banking examiners. Shepperd said he was prepared to prove with as many as 15 witnesses that Duval grand jury members are indebted to Parr or aligned with him politically. Norris Opposes Shepperd Raeburn Norris, 79th district attorney who is acting for the grand jury members, said he would ask to have Shepperd’s motion overruled. He contended in a brief that the attorney general has no legal authority to ask the grand jury be dismissed and that he did so only for “newspaper notoriety regarded by him as advancing his political ambitions.’* The state has been probing use of state funds in Duval County and its two school districts for a year. Last week it began a series of court actions that in turn led to the two federal court hearings. This is the way the script reads: Today—Hearing on Shepperd’s motion to dismiss the grand jury because it can’t impartially Investigate Duval County and Duval school district affairs because of its tics with Parr. Monday—Federal court hearings in Houston on Parr’s injunction request to restrain Texas Rangers from harming him. «Yesterday, Federal Judges T, M. Kennedy and Ben C. Connally turned down a request by Parr attorney John J. Pichinson for a short postponement in Monday’s hearing. Pichinson said he had other commitments which would make it difficult for him to appear in Parr’s behalf Monday.)

Parr is president of the San Diego State Bank. The Texas State Bank is depository for Benavides Independent School District funds. Yesterday, toe attorney general attached to a court record retaining certain Duval County records two affidavits. The affidavits were by C. G. Palacios, vice president of the San Diego bank, and E. N. Martin, handwriting expert of the State Department of Public Safety. They were accepted and filed by toe Duval district clerk. Palacios* affidavit to state banking examiner A. C. McCain said al lof the bank’s filmed records of checks had disappeared. The films covered a five-year period. Palacios said he discovered toe film was missing Feb. 8. He said he had not been able to find it. 'CONSULT THE RECORD' Davidson Denies Atwell's Charge His Court 'Slow' DALLAS (fi—Federal Dist. Judge T. Whitfield Davidson yesterday denied a suggestion from another federal judge that Davidson did Dulles Seeks to Convince Critics Berlin Parley Victory for U. S. WASHINGTON Secretary of State Dulles has undertaken to convince his critics, Congress and the country that the United States scored a diplomatic victory in arranging for a conference to discuss peace in Asia. Dulles returned last night from the Big Four foreign ministers meeting in Berlin, where he agreed to seating Russia and Red China at the conference opening April 26 at Geneva, Switzerland. He obviously was disturbed by some fears expressed in Congress that “appeasement” might result. He told newsmen who met him at the airport that this country got “100 per cent ’ of what it wanted and that "the place and composition of the conference are precisely what we sought,” Dulles, fatigued after nearly a month of fencing with Russia's V. M. Molotov, faces three days of possibly stiff questioning by congressional leaders of both parties and by the House Foreign Affairs and Senate Foreign Relations Committees. He also will report to the nation Wednesday night on radio and TV. Dulles was understood to be preparing to stress that his agreement in no way cleanses Russia of guilt in promoting and supporting Chinese and North Korean aggression, in Korea. He also is said to be planning to emphasize that this country will continue to refuse recognition to Red China and will not permit her admission to toe United Nations. The Aslan peace conference will search for ways to bring final peace in Korea and to end the seven - year - old Communist-led uprising in Indochina. Dulles’ planeside remarks probably «et the tone of his reply to congressional critics. Rep. Richards «D-SO said Dulles did “a good job”, but he also commented that if former Secretary of State Dean Acheson had come home with such an agreement, it would have been called “a sellout to the Reds,” Richards is senior Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Three members of toe Senate Foreign Relations Committee expressed misgivings about dealing with the Chinese Reds on a high diplomatic level. They were Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich), Sen. H. Alexander Smith <R-NJ> and Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn>. Dulles also was reported concerned over a hot diplomatic protest lodged by South Korea’s ambassador You Chan Yang. Acting on instructions from his government. Yang called at toe State Department a few hours before Dulles' arrival to protest bitterly that the Berlin conference represented “a diplomatic victory by the Soviets.” However, a State Department spokesman said Yang did not press his objections when he attended a meeting yesterday of representatives of United Nations allies in the Korean fighting. not handle cases with sufficient speed. Davidson, 77, wrote a 41s page letter to Judge William H. Atwell, 84, and released copies of the letter to the press. Atwell declined comment. In an interview Wednesday Atwell had suggested that Davidson might keep up with kis docket by working harder. The comment concerned a suggestion by U.S. Dist. Atty. Heard Floore that another federal judgeship was needed in the Northern District of Texas Floore did not criticize any of the judges. Said Davidson in his letter: "I was pained to read in your recent interview a suggestion, I might say a charge, that I had not been diligent in my work in allowing cases to pile up on my calendar. This is a serious charge, particularly to one who conscientiously gives the best that is in him. “If you had not forgotten to consult the record you perhaps, would not have made the charge.
