DISCUSSED Y PAN-AM MEET Mexico Offers Sugges tion For Control of Foreign Planes Fly ing Over Land HAVANA, Jan. 2«.—UP>—'Tha mat wr or intervention by one country in *“• internal aifnirt of another vu Mfera tha Pan-American congress for discussion today. It is not possible to denounce all inch interventions, a report dealing ^ith the subject declares. The re was explained by Dr. Victor aurta of Peru before its presenta tion to the committee on public in ternational law for which he is the reporter. Dr. Maurtua urged that subjects included in the first two chapters of the recommendations for the codifi cation of international law. pre pared by the Jurists’ rrnfererce in Kio Janeiro, last April, should he wade the subject of a general decla ration instead of being incorporated in a treaty. Decline Nation* Rights » These chapters define the various basic legal conceptions of such law. They alto include the article: % “No state may intervene in the internal affairs of another.” Dr. Maurtua’s report argues that j according to modern conceptions of 1 international law. a nation's sov- : ereignty is somewhat subjected to ! restrictions imposed by constantly . t growing international customs. Tha report, however, denounces in- j fervent j on as a general rule. It j maintains that among the funda- ! mental principles of International j law are independence and the right ; of all countries to grow strong and ! flourish undisturbed. Both these I precepts, tha report holds, are only ! valid if accompanied by benavior on the part of the country in question in accordance with the rules of in ternational '■omitv. Mexico Would Control Danes The committee on communica- j tiona had before it amendments sug gested by Mexico to the draft treatv ! •n commercial aviation. Their amendments appeared to delegates to introdur- tbn nrssihilitv of discrim ination between national and foreign planes on the part of any govern- j ra-ct. The Mexicans would allow govern- . wents to designate the zones over which, for military r»asons, all for- I *iltn planes and national ones en- I gaged in international service could j be excluded from flyine. The draft treaty recognized the right to estab lish such zones but snecificallv men tioned that both national and foreign machines, with distinction or ex ceptions, would have to he ex cluded. The Mexicans also would halt all international flyers at the frontier tinder an amendment providing the government should supervise all en end exits ef planes.

T. D. Blackwell, first vice-president of the Producers Cooperative association 1 presided. Following a general discussion of cooperative marketing a committee of three was apponted to investigate the plans of the two organizations and report at a second mass meeting of farmers to be held Monday night. A number of meetings have been held fcy directors of the Producers Cooperative association over the Valley since Monday night. At Los Fresnos a large number of growers were enrolled as members, and similar results were reported in sev eral other localities. A meeting of the board of directors will be held at Harlingen Friday morning to ap point permanent committees and con clude plans for a Valley-wide mem bership drive. There is widespread discussion oyer the Valley relative to the marketing plans of the two organizations. The Valley Vegetable Growers associa tion, organized last fall, has a large membership and is marketing through one marketing agency. The Producers Cooperative association proposes marketing through licensed shippers designated by the board of directors, the plan being very similar to that of the Potato Growers asso I ciation which has a large member ship in Cameron county. Less Than 5000 Poll Taxes Paid — Pol! tax receipts through Wednes ' day amounted to 3.295, exclusive of those issued at Harlingen, San Be nito, Rio Hondo and La Feria banks and two recently designated receiv ing places in Brownsville, according | to figures in the office of J. J. Fox. county tax collector. The excluded ! out of town points at the last com i Dilation had received approximated 900 payments. I Of the 3,295, a total of 3,070 were paid and 225 were exemptions. This l represents a gain of 126 over the | totals up through the previous day. The aggregate is still under the half way mark of the estimated 10.000 poll tax receipts which should be is sued. It will be illegal to issue poll tax receipts after midnight, Jan. 31, Mr. i Fox said. (Continued from page one) ton. attended the dinner, later aaid he would “have to be excused from talking partisan politics.” “There is no honor that could come to Jesse Jones,” he continued, “that would begin to show the appreciation wt have for him in Texas. He ie big enough for any office within the gift of the people.” Mayor Holcombe, earlier in the day, called on Mayor James J. Wal ker at city hall and in an inter view leter said that the city of Houston would be neutral political territory. -My position is simply this,” he said. “I am not for A1 Smith nor for anyone else. I am for the man who can be elected, whether he be Gov. Smith. Gov. Ritchie, Owen Young or anyone else. W’e in Hous ton will be hosts to the democratic party, and we shall be neutral. Per sonally, I hops tha Texas daleg»*!'~ is uninstructed ” G. O. P. Uiikub* h>~.u Meanwhile, the campaign started in New York state by followers of Herbert Hoover to bring about the election of delegates pledged to his nomination as republican presiden tial candidate, caused considerable discussion in party circles. Charles F. Hills, vice chairman of tha na tional republican committee, in a statement, said he and George K. | Morris, state chairman, maintained ! the attitude they took on Dec. 1 for an uninstructed and unpledged ; delegation and asserted they “count I confidentially” upon the approval 1 of this policy at a statewide con I ference of party lee'ders at Schenec tady tomorrow and Friday. Politics Active At Washington WASHINGTON. Jan. 26.—UP)—Po litical foundation-building goes on apace here in preparation for what promises to be a memorable presi dential campaign year. Construction experts are on the ground in in creasing numbers, designing struc tures trat first must withstand the summer tempests of party conven tions before encountering the No vember tide of ballots. The first of these stood almost full grown today, mushrooming out over night, complete to the proverb ial lightning rod. It flew the demo cratic standard of Senator James A. Reed of Missouri, erected not by hi* own hand but with his “full knowl edge and consent.*’ Reed's campaign headquarters were opened by I.ee Meriwether of St. Louis, who will manage the cam paign here, in conjunction with an other headquarters at Louisiana, - ar-h.-^v." Mo. That one will be managed by Edward A. Glenn, who handled Champ Clark's 1912 campaign for the nbmination. Blease Offers Split Thus Reed's headquarters, in the Washington hotel, takes a central position in a political campsite where other plots have been marked off for prospective or announced en tries in quadriennial White House handicao. For his neighbors Reed may expect Gov. Smith of New York, Gov. Ritchie of Maryland, Sec retary Hoover, Vice President Dawes, Senator Curtis of Kansas, Senator Willis of Ohio, Former Gov. Lowden of Illinois, and many others. If the opinion of Senator Blease, democrat. South Carolina, is widely shared, another camp might be Bitched to straddle the party line. He told the senate yesterday that a good ticket would be Borah, repub lican, of Idaho, for president, and Overman, democrat, of North Caro lina, for vice president. These men he described as “two great demo crats" and he then proposed to the republicans that they unite on Cal vin Coolidge. adding that he "wouid j n’t shed a tear” if Coolidge were re elected. Many in Race With establishment of headquar ters, Reed’s candidacy takes first rank prominence in the pre-conven tion campaign. His organization, however, is no more complete or far-rpachir.g than the less visible machines of some other candidates who are active themselves or whose friends are working fdr them. Sup porters of Governor Smith are re ported to be ertremely active throughout the country perfecting an organization, as are those of Secretary Hoover. Dawes has no known organization behind him although his name holds its own in discussion of presidential candidates. Senator Curtis is not ! saying much about his campaign but 1 there arc indications that the Kan san is pushing his efforts in sever al states, and that he has a head quarters somewhere. Meanwhile, friends of Senator Willis are active, particularly his Ohio campaign man ager, Car mi Thompson, who will soon open headquarters at Colum bus. __ NICKEL PLATING RE-SILVERING We Do It Right RIVERFRONT NICKEL PLATING CO.

A stock Dictator Sedan, fully equipped, covered 1483 miles in 24 hours—total elapsed time—better than mile-a minute speed for 1440 consecutive minutes! This remarkable record was established under the supervision of the American Automobile Asso ciation. No stock car selling under $1400 has ever traveled so far so fast — convincing proof of The Dictator’s sound design and inbuilt stamina. Look to Studebaker for value! The Dictator's remarkable value is due to Studebaker*s One-Profit manufacturing facilities which reduce profits of outside parts-makers to a minimum. Savings thus made allow for extra quality and added refinements without corresponding increase in price. You must drive The Dictator to realise its super-value. In it the integrity of construction for which Studebaker has been famous for 76 years is combined with the most ad vanced engineering of 1928. Remits of I Engineering Genius Due to edranced design, precisian .man ufacture, and the Studebaker practice of running intevery car on a dynamom eter, The Dictator may be driven aa high as 40 miles per boor the day it is delivered.
