I nned Presa (UPI PRICE 5 CENTS Paying Will Rogers Tribute— * TOM MIX MADE MEMBER OF COWBOY BAND ( « Tom Mix, now 58 but straight aud lean as ever, came to town yesterday with his famous circus and received a reception unlike any other he has had since he began operating his show five years ago. He was made an honorary member of the world-famous Hardin-Simmons university Cowboy band, and thus received an honor first accorded to his old friend and neighbor Will Rogers. Mix was met at the circus grounds by Mayor Will Hair, Band Manager G. B. Sandefer, Wendell Bedichek and J. Ransom Horn^ driving a new sport model Packard on which the group rode to the business district. The Cowboy band, headed by Will Watson and Police Chief Hackney, mounted, led the Mix car through the business district to the lobby of the Hilton hotel, where a microphone had been set up by Station KRBC. Crowds, mostly children, lined the streets along the entire route, small boys continually shouting “Tom Mix! Tom Mix!” Sandefer told Mix that in the Cowboy band’s travels in Europe and Mexico small boys invariably, upon seeing the musicians’ cowboy hats, began shouting “Tom Mix!’’ In the hotel lobby the band, directed by Marion B. McClure, played several pieces, on the 15-minute informal program broadcast by KRBC. Mayor Hair welcomed Mix, saying that he had brought pleasure and entertainment to people all over the world, and especially to children. Mix was presented a large framed picture of the Cowboy band, Hardin-Simmons officials, and others taken atop Cheyenne mountain in Colorado several months ago at the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun.

CoL i Nab Anson Women For Shoplifting Police apparently stemmed a ■ wave of petty shoplifting at Abilene five an ten cent stores with the arrest of three Anson women yesterday. Another escaped. Tile quartet, three of them married and all between the ages of 23 and 40, were making a round of variety and department stores picking up small articles and carrying them away in shopping bags. A plainclothes policeman was sent to follow them. As he watched, they stole articles in Woolworth's, McClellans. Grants : and Montgomery Ward. When he was sure that they were guilty, he arrested three. The total value of the loot taken by the four amounted to less than $2.

Moore, general chairman of Abilene’s motorcade to Wichita Palls Tuesday for the West Texas chamber of commerce convention, | predicted last night that the city I would have the largest visiting delegation at the regional conclave. “We are practically sure of go-i ing over the top in our drive for 600 advance registrations.” Moore said, Sale of registration badges here will close Monday morning, and Moore has asked that all ticket sellers check in with their reports at the chamber of commerce building before noon. Abilene has received pledges of 1,094 votes for next year's convention of the West Texas chamber of commerce, T. N. Carswell, secretary of the local chamber, said Saturday. “We probably can get more votes when we get there,” said Carswell, “but other towns have already pledged us that number.” Carswell said that only 1,800 votes were cast last year. He is to leave for Wichita Falls today.

Post Youth Dies In Snyder Hospital Angelo Site Of Band Contests Observers View Recent Tactics As Significant By KIRKE L. SIMPSON WASHINGTON, April 23—(TF)— Definite progress President Roosevelt has made in the past two weeks toward regaining leadership of his own party in congress is of more immediate consequence to the administration than outcome of the liberal conference just called by Gov. Philip Lafollette of Wisconsin. Governor LaFollette's call for a meeting of liberals next Thursday raises possibility of a three-cornered presidential race in 1940. But this threat of a third party candidacy is still a matter of speculation rather than fact, and 1940 is two years away. TACTICAL ADVANTAGES On the other hond, Roosevelt’s recent tactics may have prompt political results. Direct White House pressure forced upon rebellious senate democrats a tax revision compromise providing the business - criticized undistributed profits tax should be retai'-wl in a greatly-modified form. This gives the president at J least a tactical advantage in his apparent effort to make this year’s democratic primaries and general elections a test of the administration’s popularity with the voters. Both house and senate are expected generally ! to approve the tax compromise. Their acceptance of it may influence final out-lcome of the renewed White House drive to i write a wage-hour act into the I statutes at this I session. !

President Roosevelt intends to complete his legislative recommendations during the week and leave Washington Friday for a fishing trip. Messages are expected from the executive on monoply, removal of tax exemptions on salaries of public employes and income from federal and state securities. Administration leaders on capitol hill hoped to send the tax revision measure to the White House next week, obtain senate approval of the naval expansion bill and clean up a half-dozen odds-and-ends of legislation in the house.
