Today, after a short battle was resumed streets still littered with Wonton in llattle Tin* women fought Ilk** old pioneers of the American prairies. A government troop commander said they helped carry munitions and reload rifles of their embattled husbands and brothers who fought from the windows of their homes. Their resistance was .smashed by artillery. “There were plenty of innocent noncombatants,** said one officer, “who had no choice but to go through the shelling.’* The state of civil war between the socialists and the government continued serious throughout tin* nation, hut in outlying regions the government rapidly appeared to be gaining the upper hand. Chancellor Engelbert Doilfuss. determined to retain control of the government, declared the) socialist fight was ‘‘madness." “One may say already.” said Doilfuss. “that this undertaking j has entirely failed and that the' position of the federal government j is stronger than ever.** At Linz, one of tho bloodiest spots in the rebellion, the government was definitely In control, j The government carried out its; threat of death sentences against' the rebels when a con t martial sentenced a 13-year old shoemaker to hang.    I More Troops Hushed Iii The government* summoning j all available manpower to its side, poured reserve troops into the capital.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 14.— (JP A call for women legislative candidates was sounded today by Mrs. Anna Laskey, former state representative, as 150 women gathered here today to form the women’s democratic council of Oklahoma. “You people just go home and pick out the smartest girl in your county and make her run,” she urged. “All 7 7 of them can’t win hut we*!l get a start, anyway.” The guest of honor and to- leiters    until    July    I,    1935,    un-j nights speaker is    Mrs. Florence the    president    orders    reduct-J    Rodgers, of Dallas, one of the instigators of the “safe and sane of July” movement. Rodgers, occasionally lifting a lorgnette, said in an interview' that women    “are realizing they are affected    by the entire scope of legislation.” Mrs. Mabel Bassett, state’s charities commissioner advised the women to start pushing the legislation they want while candidates are running for office, not after they are elected. “I ve seen too many of them change after they're in.” she said. TEXAS RELIEVES TI Estimated 20 Per Cent Lifted Through Homestead Exemption Plan AUSTIN, Tex., Feb. 12.—(.TV-Twenty per cent of the state property tax burden was lifted from Texas real estate owners by adoption of an amendment to tin* constitution exempting from ad valorem taxation homestead property up to $3,000 in value, officials of the state comptroller’s department have estimated.

During the debate, Senator Robinson of Arkansas, the majority leader, conceded the administration was going to have difficulty halting the program. Since were not exempted from county taxation, valuations for that purpose were $3,764,139,512, a decrease of $198,01)0,000 1932. Action was taken by legislature and state mission to provide revenue to offset the loss. The state levy was increas-j cd from 69 cents to the maxi-1 mum of 77 cents on $100 valuation by the tax commission. It gave the eight-cent increase to the general revenue fund, while tile tax for school purposes was at tile maximum, 35 cents, remaining seven cents of the was authorized by the constitution to provide for confederate pensions. Officials estimate tile school fund will receive $2,200,000 less than the $11,000,000 realized last year from laifti taxes because of the exemption. To bolster that fund, the legislature increased t from one-fourth to one-half the!

The gross production tax on crude oil was changed from per cent of the market value to two cents a barbel and the school fund's share was increased from one-fourth to one-half, tile general revenue fund receiving Hie* remainder. The change, which became effective Sept. I. 192.3, will not lower the general revenue fund’s receipts from that source, but will increase materially the school fund, it was estimated. From the previous tax, tile schools received $1,039,896 and the general fund $3,119,688 during th** fiscal year ending Aug. 31, 1933. at the office of Lindbergh’s attorney.

In Way of Cotton Crop Regulation WASHINGTON, Feb. 13.—FP) Secretary Wallace reiterated to the house agriculture committee today his fundamental opposition to compulsory crop control, but said he supported the WASHINGTON, Feb. 13.—FP) The XRA today decided to abandon past policy and encourage the formation of regional codes or agreements in the trades which are clearly outside of interstate commerce. Hugh s. Johnson issued this statement:. “It is recognized that iii the development of a program of industrial self government, whore national industries must be organized nationally, we may wisely follow' the theories underlying the organization of our federal union of self-governing states, utilizing national organization and national standards where they are nationally applicable and providing iii a practical manner for local control of local affairs.” Trades Listed The new type of code or agreements is proposed to be used for such trades as laundries, restaurants, taxicabs, and barber shops, hut dot for local retail stores. These, because they handle products generally manufactured in interstate commerce, are to remain organized on countrywide lines. T!ie new policy was viewed at NR A as meeting the increasing enforcement difficulties in such trades as dry cleaning, where *t has proved next to impossible to secure compliance on a nationwide scale and in which prosecution of violators is especially difficult because their business is so clearly outside the usual scone of Bankhead lnt£,slate commerce'    ..    , * The announcement said “state barrels. *-- adjustment farmers of make it po the explanation and to take ad-wili be tho THREE SHIE HWA OKLAHOMA CITY.

Giles said he was notified from Washington that “projects of this type should he stopped, effective Thursday niirht.” Meanwhile, congressional approval of the $950,000,000 CWA-relief appropriation bill apparently forestalled the possibility that the state's 102,000 civil workers would ”o payless for a time. \s for the projects abandoned, the state administrator said the government “plans to halt similar projects in all states, probably from the CWA payroll when the work week ends tomorrow night.” It was explained that the cancellation was the result of objection to federal projects on private lands. The sanitary-malaria control project was under Dr. G.

REOPEN COPPER MINES cooperation in acreage reduction might result from an increase in the processing tax and increased benefits to tile farmers. A compulsory plan for raising prices, Jones said, “might cause irritation” and be subject to legal attack. Wallace told the committee “it should be seriously considered whether a mere majority of cotton producers * * * should bo able to put into effect the drastic program contemplated. Furthermore, serious consideration! should be given as to the form such a referendum should take.’ The proposed legislation placed “a tremendous responsibility” upon the secretary of agriculture in determining w-hether a majority of producers wanted such a program, he said. One of Wallace's chief criticisms of the measure was “the I tendency to freeze the produc-new | lion of whatever commodity we are dealing with to the confines of the states or territories where it has previously been produced,” he asked “a clearer determinina-tion” of his powers and Vuthor-ity in dealing with shifting production and related problems. {to give additional sanction to agreements regionally for regional trades and industries, and to in Hie local application and enforcement of the requirements of federal codes.” This was understood to mean that there would bo loss effort to enforce regional codes in federal courts.

She has been called as a witness in a .enate investigation in Washington. The meeting opens at IO a. rn. and closes with a banquet, at which Mrs. Huff will be toastmistress.

Filling stations and other “outlets for productive enterprises of a national che racier” wmuld remain under national codes. Retail coal and lumber establishments and agencies for manufactured products such as automobiles, household appliances and others evidently would be retained in this class.
