Governor Dan Moody, who wants to give the new prison board plenary powers in sale and purchase of lands in any concentration plan that may be decided upon, has indicated that he may submit the question of prison legislation to the session. During th* Fortieth Legisla-lature’a regular session, the governor and th* Banate lout their effort* to give th* prison board a lr** hand in sales and purchases. The prison reorganization bill creating th* new board of prison commissioners and an f8,000 a year manager was passed, but the entire relocation feature originally Introduced in the bill was stricken •ut after a deadlock between House and Senate conferees had endangered the whole bill. The bill, a committee measure ^ VTePnred under guidance of Ip>use prison authorities. Including Hep. iJbe* Satterwhite of Amarillo and Rep. Claude Terr of Granger, went from the House to the Senate with with provision for possible relocation of the prison system. land sales and purchases, however. would have been subject to approval of the legislature, by an amendment written into the measure after a lengthy fight in the House. The Senate committee, favoring the liberal policy of relocation advocated by Rep. Teer, Moody House spokesman, wrote a new bill restoring plenary powers to the board. The house balked however, and the bill was passed with only half its original Intent. Fake Publicity Is : Blamed For Ruin Of Movie Actors By Universal Service. NEW YORK, May 7.—Have you noticed recently how many movie blare are being presented by their fress agents as human beings" It seems that they know how to bake ) cakes, work in gardens, get marri-* erf—and sometimes even have babies'—Just like the rest of the race. And what has become of those r luminaries who bathed In goat s milk for the complexion’s sake, lived In rococo chambers filled with the incense which matched their sensitive souls, appeared in public with inscrutable Hindu attendants and practiced similar eccentricities? They’ve gone to Join the dood, in extinction. And the reason, briefly, is that the public got sick of being bunked. So explains Igmelln O.

TERRY COUNTY FARMING LAND NEEDING RAIN Fields Prepared But Activities Are Halted; Planting Is Late. BROWNFIELD, May 7.—All farming land in Terry county has been broken and mad* ready for planting, but operations have been halted awaiting general rains which are usually received about this season of the year. The ground season is better than it has been for several years and gras* on the prairie still remains green and very little rain will be needed to mature crops. However, no rain of any consequence has been received during the past two months except in the extreme western portion of the county and residents of that district planted a considerable amount of their acreage in cotton but no other crop will be planted until later in tho year a* it has been demonstrated that late planted crops produce more abundantly as a rule, than do those that are placed early in the year. There will not be any appreciable reduction In cotton acreage but corn and other feed will be grown in quantities sufficient to care for home requirements with a considerable surplus for sale. ural Purebred Stock Raisers All Given Diplomas In Widespread Campaign For Better Animals f-JR m SIRES y EXCLUSIVELY USED ION THIS FARM jk * WE ARE COOPERATING mm FOR BETTER UVESTOCK ’’3*3®    WFT*    TSI STATE COLLEGE m    I    (5. *P|?    w ■ .

A. A. national headquarters here today. Due to the increase in membership of new clubs organised as unit* of the national motoring body during the last twelve months, A. A. A. officials hero predicted that the Philadelphia Convention will break all records for attendance. Every section of the country will b» represented by local delegates to this, the greatest annual get-together of American motordom, and it is anticipated that when the roil Is called, as many as 400 delegates will be on hand. W’hile the sexton# of the convention will b« held in the Ritz-Carlton hotel, four A. A. A. clubs operating in the “City of Brotherly Love” will act as hosts to the gathering. These units are:    The Au tomobile Club of Philadelphia, the Knight* of Columbus Automobile club, Pelham Automobile club and the Philadelphia Auto Trad* Association. Philadelphia secured the A. A. A. annual convention in th* face of hot bidding from a score of cities last January, when the board of directors of the association met at the Roosevelt hotel in New York to select the 1927 convention city. The invitation in behalf of Philadelphia wa* extended by Robert P. Hooper, president of the Pennsylvania Motor Federation which is one of the most powerful state units in the A. A. A. Mr. Hooper is also a member of the A. A. A. executive committee and one of its former national presidents. The major part of th* sessions of the two-day convention will be devoted as usual to the discussion of motoring and car-owner problems and to the development of a program behind which A. A. A. clubs in every state of the union from Maine to California will mobilize their forces in the months immediately ahead. one* working for degrees these days. The livestock grower who agree* to use purebred sires exclusively in roising all classes of animals on his farm is presented by the Department of Agriculture and state agricultural colleges with a diploma, emblematic of his interest In “Better Sires-Better Stock*’ educational campaign. In addition, he is given a lithographed barn etym resembling a metal tablet which he Is authorized to display. Realizing the widespread use of inferior male breeding animals has beep for many years a cause of low production per animal and of needlessly poor quality, the department launched the “Better Sires-Better Stock” campaign eight years ago as one of several plans to bring about Increased efficiency in the production of meats and dairy and poultry commodities. Special emphasis was placed on the improvement of purebred male' a male has a great many more progeny than the average female, the ratio being approximately 20 to I for most classes of livestock. A total of 17,068 grower* had enrolled in the campaign up to April I . Animals, exclusive of fowls, undergoing improvement, totaled 571,620; poultry, 1.290,066; states in which participants resided, 46; counties having IOO or more par nixed as well as individuals for their work, a county honor list being issued every quarter containing those counties with IOO or more participants. New Haven county, Conn., with 747 participants, is first; Union county, Ky„ ranks second, with 642, and Pulaski county, Va., is third with 592.

The campaign Is administered by the Bureau of Animal Industry in cooperation with extension workers of the department end the various states, livestock breeders termed to dealb. Farmers, lawyers, county official* and extension work era participate in then* mock trials, which many times ore followed by a sale of purebred livestock. Th* Department of Agriculture will furnish to anyone upon request an outline for on* of theso trials, even down to the arrangement* for music, barbecue or other and others.

Eastland Has Royalty Deals EASTLAND, Texas, May 6.—A number of Important royalty deals were consumated during the past few days involving royalties in the Morgan and McAllister pools in the southwestern portion of Eastland county. One-fourth of the royalty on 160 acres sold for $19,000.00; and an offer of $25,600.00 was refused for a one-fourth royalty in 160 ac'*«s in these pools. There are now 7 wells drilling in the Morgan pool and 8 drilling in the McAllister pool. There are 16 producers and no dry hole# in either tho pools.    j MET til. PISS ll COHOE ON FARM RELIEF Travelers To Lay Plans For Picnic BY BASCOM lf. TIMMONS* Reporter-New* Bureau. WASHINGTON, May 7.—Western farm organizations today served notice that they will fight to the end for the McNary-Haugen farm bill and will not accept the compromise plan which th* G. O. P. Is working out. The deft caused uneasiness In Administration circles where It had been hoped that the compromis* plan would be made at least attractive enough to remove pitfalls from the G. O. P. path in the 1928 Presidential election. The North Central Slates Agricultural Conference announced that It would send to every part of th* country an analysis of th* President’s McNary-Haugen veto, prepared by Clarence Ousley of Fort Worth, former Assistant Secretary of Agriculture. Sentiment Growing. Westerners said that sentiment for the McNary-Haugen bill continues to grow and predicted at the rat* of gain it has had in successive Congress enough votes can be counted in th* Seventieth Congree* to pass the bill over the President's veto. Taking its cue from the action of th* directors of th* United State* Steel Corporation in authorizing a tow days ago th* payment of a forty per cent stock dividend, along with the $7 annual dividend rate, the North Central States Agricultural conference in it* statement declared that th* President had used the flexible provision of the tariff law to keep up steel price*, but wa* unwilling to help th* farmer because in the case of the latter it would be “Government price-fix-lug.M    ' Not only i* President Coolidge at tacked by th* North Central States Agricultural oCnference, but Secretary of the Treasury Andrew W. Mellon is vigorously criticized. An official order, under dat* of January 29, credited to Mr- Mellon and which led President Coolidge to raise the rates on pig Iron under the flexible tariff powers Congress delegated to him, is quoted as follows: “After due investigation, I find that pig iron from Germany is being sold and is likely to be sold in the United States at leas than its fair value and that th* industry of making pig Iron in the United States has been and is likely to be injured by reason of the importation of pig iron Into the United States from Germany. Doesn’t Believe In “Fixing.’* After saying that “on February 24 President Coolidge increased the rate of duty on pig iron PO per cent, under the flexible provisions of the Fordney-McCumber tariff act of 1922,** the Agricultural Conference quotes from Dun’s Review that basic pig iron “has been advanced 56 cents a ton” and adds: “The president, It may be remarked parenthetically, doe* not believe in ‘Government price-fixing,* even indirectly. He said so in hi* farm bill veto. Members of the Traveling Men’* Luncheon club in their meeting st 6:15 this evening will discuss plans for a “Peddlers picnic” to be held on May 28.

Agrees To Pipe Water From Its Plant On Brazos River ALBANY, May 7.—Albany Is assured plenty of water in the future by an arrangement that has been reached with Roeser A Pendleton, Inc., to bring it through their pumping plant from th* Clear Fork of the Brazos, When oil was discovered on th* Cook ranch by Itoescr A Pendleton, Inc., they installed a pumping plant and have been getting their water from the. Clear Fork, and it is of sufficient capacity to supply many times the need of AI bani'. A chloronator, settling basin and standpipe will be erected by the city to insure plenty of clear, pure water at all times. This will enable commercial Industries that have been inclined to locate at Albany to avail themselves of the natural gas supply, but have hesitated to do so until water was assured, to go ahead with their plans. Plenty of natural gas and plenty of water Is expected to attract a number of industries to this locality. Lake Dill* r. that has supplied the town with water for a number of years, will be utilised as en amusement park, bathing beach, club and boat house. While nothing definite has been done in this direction, it is experted that much of this will be ready before the summer is over.

Hasting* of Seattle. It quotes a telegram from Professor Ha*tings to his nephew, EJ Rider, & member of the Chronicle Butt, OM its authority. The problem wa# said to have baffled the world’s mathematicians for centuries. Rider said he had received a mesnage from Professor Hastings asserting he was “ready to demonstrate his solution before amy body of mathematicians in the world." Professor Hssings expected, Rider said, that the principles of the solution will have an important effect in draughting, designing and precision engineerng. Professor Hastings, who got his groundwork in mathematics at West Point, pointed out that more than 200 years before Christ Arch-imides brought out what wa* credited with being the first false solution, Two centuries ago solution# which were proven false were so many that the French academy barred them from consideration and in the 19th century mathematicians generally, according to Professor Hastings, hitherto have concluded that impossibility of trisecting an arc or a triangle by nil-1 #r and compass “is conclusive and unmistakable." Professor Hastings' solution of the problem aa received her# by Mr. Rider says: “Construct a right angle and on the sides of the right angle lay off equal recta, which any radius and its double. Then complete the three squares, or two rectangles with a common unit square. With the side# of the rectangle as a re dlus, describe an arc of the rlgnt angle. Where this arc Intersects the sides of the rectangles will be the points of trisection of the ire of the right angle. Connect with the vertex of the angle and three angles of thirty degrees are formed. This is easily proven by the sines of the angles. Since the trisector is double th* side of til«* square, this ratio is one-half or 0. 5006 wrhich is the sine of thirty degree*." NEW YORK, May 7,—(AP) King Cotton look* to new empires to conquer. The cotton textile industry of the United States—a giant of sotho $2,000,000,000 invested capital—is working toward this goal under direction of Walter D. Hines, one time director general of railroads, who has been drafted to coordinate the industry and promote its progress and development. As head of the newly organized Textile Institute, Inc.—the latest born in the family of industrial institutes—Hines is applying the same harmonizing agencies that enabled him as arbitrator to solve the snarled problems of th# waterways and shipping of middle Europe after the World War. It was this feat of Hines in composing tho difference# be- ttween the allies and former enemy countries and his farreaching responsibilities in operating 2">0,000 miles of railroad as President Wilson’s direct general of transportation in the post armistice period that brought the call from th# cotton men to beati the textile institute. Formed for On-oporetikwi Th# institute was formed for co-operative efforts along lines that had been employed in iron and steel, meat pecking and tho copper and brass industries. A field survey marks the Initial Sfago Of the Hines campaign that hat for it* ambitious achievement the coordination of the cotton textile Industry from the grower down to the disposition of the consuming public. Already Hines has ha* marshalled behind him 484 cotton mills aa members of the institute which represent more than 21,356,060 spindles or about two-thirds of the active spindles of the country. Hines has been making clo** contacts with manufacturers and acquainting himself with the diverse angle* of the industry with the view of obtaining a preliminary idea of the leading problems so that he announces he la prepared to shape up his organisation. He Plans to make a thorough survey of the question of extending the demand for cotton goods by organising a section on new uses. Th# former director general off railroads also intends to make a careful survey of the method* of coct accounting In the various mill* that wish to participate in such a study through the •election of an expert co# accountant for this work. statins ca, both general and special, are to be as* aembled and digested and aune* marixed. Division Are Broken All geographical divisions hav# been broken down on the campaign to establish King Cotton more securely on his throne. Hines •ald. Members -f th* American Association of Cotton Manufacturers. whose interest* lie in th# south, and the National Assoc!#* Hon of Manufacturers, with its membership in New England, have Joined hands in the common cause, a* Hines puts it—“a clear ascertainment of the underlying facts as to the extension of uses of cotton good# and as to seduction, cost and consumption so that every manufacturer may be more fully advised as to the hearing of the general situation upon his individual problems and may reach decisions as to his policies in the light of this more complete information. Tho cotton manufacturing industry is made up of a variety of different lines of manufacture, each with its separate problem*. It la, therefore, Hines thinks, indispensible In the search of facts to proceed separately a* to esc hot those branches of the industry and he is taking steps to organize the industry in to group# for th# purpose of developing the necessary information. Thus the "wide sheetings group’ and the “narrow sheetings group” already have been organised and each is taking steps to promote the obtaining of Information n at Ag to its own problem* and opportunities. Other grout's are Uk-tfr to be formed In tho near future and each group win he to a position to utilize the result* of research in Hir.es’ office and also avail itself of th# initiate e and assistance of the other groups.
