Almost stoic in their sudden grief, 'emily and friends attend ed double funeral rites yesterday afternoon for Clyde mother and daughter, Mrs J. H. Baxter. 75. and Mrs. J. B Estcr-ling, about 55. Both were victims of the tornado which swept through the Callahan county town Friday night, claiming IO other lives.
Eyes lowered. 400 friends filed past th? flower-banked caskets, side by side at the altar in Clyde’s little white Church of Christ. All the while a quartet sang softly and the three min-
The operating budget for the city of Abilene for the fiscal year was set up yesterday at $298,100, $5,000 under actual expenditures last year but an increase of $20,000 over the budget outlined for 1937-38.
The budget hike this vear comes chiefly in additions of departments to the list, rather than in the regular departments, six of these being reduced under last year’s budget figures.
STUDY SCHOOLS There is a hike of $13,000, however in the water department, for J construction of water and sewer lines, one mile each in length, to the Hendrick Home for Children, and a few other regular department I hikes such as street lights from $20.- I 835 to $24,000 This is in line with ' [the 1937-39 street light expense, which, with new- installations made.

WASHINGTON, June 13—^— The 75th congree was almost ready tonight to pass Into history. Leaders had struck a compromise on the $3,753,000,000 soenalng-lendtng bill. designed to stimulate the nation’s economic system, and had washed their hands, temporarily at least, of the troubles confronting the country’s railroads.
Those decisions, and compromise on wage-hour standards reached by a senate-house committee over the week-end. virtually disposed of the major tasks on the program for the last days of the session,
Several formalities, and odds and ends, remained to be cleaned up, but the administration leadership announced that the final gavel would fall Wednesday night, barring unforeseen developments.
It was decided at a White House conference this morning that the problem of the railroads, many of which face financial difficulties in this time of depression, would be postponed until next session.
A few weeks ago, legislation to loosen up RFC loans to carrier* was making headway, but railroad labor unions, aroused by the carriers’ proposal to cut wages 15 per ant, registered strong opposition to the legislation, and it was sidetracked.
Despite today's announcements, however, pressure for some legislation assisting the roads continued. A new compromise was put forward. It consisted of an offer of a railroad unemployment insurance bill, approved by the house and reported out of the senate la bor, commit-

By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE
Associated Press Science Editor SAN FRANCISCO. June 13— Human bone marrow, which grows in bottles In a medical laboratory at the University of Oregon, has been catching pneumonia.
The pneumonia was caused by infecting the living marrow with human pneumococcus germs, and out of this strange experiment, the American Medical association was informed today, has come a new idea
about a treatment that promises to cut the pneumonia death rate.
The bottled marrow experiments were shown in the scientific exhibits by Edwin E. Osgood, M. D of University of Oregon medical school, at Portland. He invented the method of growing human bone marrow artificially. He uses a new and simplified type of the “tissue culture-’ for whin Col. Charles A. Lindbergh invented the artificial heart used at the
Rockefeller institute in New York.
Colonel Lindbergh's “’heart” keeps whole organs alive. Dr. Osgood’s “bottle culture" goes back nearer the origin of health bv growing the cells of which tissues are madp. and which sustain the direct attacks of disease.
He takes marrow from the breast bone of living persons with a needle. It Is as simple and comparatively painless as taking a drop of blood with a
needle. This bit of bone marrow he puts in a small bottle with salts, serum, and air on which the marrow cells can live
When it is time to feed the marrow he whirls the bottle In a centrifuge. This temporarily separates the marrow from the wa.'te matter which has formed from its consumption of food. Tile waste is drawn off with a hypodermic needle and
