Preliminary plans were discussed in a long session at the Wooten hotel of an all-cfty committee named Tuesday by President J. C Hunter of the Abilene chamber of commerce. A thorough discussion of the project was had and it was agreed that Abilene needs to register more people for the convention. in advance of it, than any other city aside from the host city. ASKING CONVENTION Abilene is inviting the 1939 convention, That was considered sufficient reason Abilene should have a record relegation. Abilene is headquarters city of the WTCC and the committee felt it should show its appreciation for that designation by contributing more than any other town to success of this year's covent ion. This is what needs to be done, the committee decided, and figured roughly it would take $1,003, counting registration fees of $1 I each, to do it: 1.

Chinese, who sent word they had surrounded the walled cities of Ylhsien and Esaochwang, had high j hopes their warrior hordes would defeat Japanese again before reinforcements could arrive from | Japanese bases to the north. 1,500 JAPS KILLED The reports said Chinese troops had killed 1.500 Japanese in a battle at Tsaochwang and thwarted JLj Japanese attempts to reestablish communications between the two beleaguered cities. Ylhsien is 25 miles north of , Taierhchwang, where Chinese last week routed a Japanese advance unit thrusting through southern Shantung province toward the vi- j tai Lunghal railroad Tsaochwang is 13 miles still farther to the j north west. The three cities had been taken by Japanese attempting to con FIGHTS TAXES HARRISON AVERS LEVIES MUST BE KILLED TO HELP BUSINESS SEN. HARRISON (See (tory to right) Roosevelt Asks Retention Of Taxes In Letter To Conference Committee WASHINGTON, April 13—(AP)—Senate tax leaders rebelled tonight against a strongly-worded request from President Roosevelt that the principle of the undistributed profits tax and a graduated levy on capital gains be retained in the new revenue bill. Chairman Harrison (D-Miss) of the senate finance committee said, despite Roosevelt’s letter asking retention on these house-approved taxes, senate conferees would insist they be eliminated. A congressional conference committee now is seeking to adjust differences between house and senate versions of the tax bill. ' I believe the repealing of the undistributed profits tax and the modification of the,—      * capital gains tax, such adopted by the senate, business,’’ Harrison said. The Mississipian himself had made public earlier a letter from the president—which some legislators said was unprecedented—reviewing arguments for these levies and asking their retention. “HELP TO BUSINESS* Business will be helped, not hurt, by these suggestions,” the president said.

Some labor leaders concluded it presaged a labor war that might even be longer and more bitter than the struggle between the A. F. of L. and the Knights of Labor in the 1880‘s. As the first step toward forming a new labor federation the C. I.

Seventy-three years ago a broken and impoverished Confederacy lost its truest, kindliest and most influential friend. He was Abraham Lincoln, war-time president of the United States, And though he was loader of forces which had scarce finished crushing Southern secessionists, Lincoln was a man whose assassination meant ad ditional suffering. At least three Abilene women, all true daughters of the Confederacy, recall what his murder meant.    f One is Mrs. Martha A Floyd, a native of Dallas county, who observed her 92d birthday last March. She lives with a daughlt ter. Willie M. Floyd, at 1841 South Fifth street. Abraham Lincoln, she recalls, had rather intimate connection with her husband's family, He was still in quest of his limited education when he cut and hauled the now famous rails which paid in part for Lincolns schooling. The work was done for Nathaniel Crosby Floyd, her father-in-law. who lived near Barge-town, Ky. “He would have had some mercy on the South. It was Lincoln's plan, you know, to pay their owners $300 for each of the slaves he had freed; and he wanted to pay for all property which had been confiscated by the North during the war. “We thought that he was killed by his own minions. They had elected him because they thought he was weak and a catspaw. Then they couldn’t work him. He proved stubborn for what he thought was honest.” Mrs, Floyd was 14 years old when the War Between the States began. Both the man who later became her husband and her elder brother bore arms in behalf of the South. Thomas H Floyd went “acrass the river” (the Mississippi1 to enlist. Friends and relatives did not see him again for four years. He was married Septem ber 3 1865, to Alice West—only a fewp months after Lincoln’s death. Their wedding took place at Cochran's chapel, nee Dallas. Her brother was John R. West, whose son by the same name lives in Dallas today. “The South did wrong to secede,” Mrs. Floyd thinks. “It should have stayed in the union to fight for its rights.” There’s an unreconstructed flavor, also, to her views on present-day politics. Roosevelt she consider an able president. bee LINCOLN, Tg. 14, Col. 4 Mohair Loans Okehed WASHINGTON, April 13 - T -The agricultural adjustment administration announced today approval of loans up to $3,000,000 to mohair growers to help them market their 1937 and 1938 clips.
