The young women were ordered to return to their camp and Inform ed the next time they come back to town they must put on more clothes. The broad plain, bounded on the south by a great lake, on the north by rugged snow capped mquntains, on the east and west by two great fissures of volcanic formation cut before the dawn of history, was dot ted with many thousands of people who had come from far corners of the earth. Today’s ceremonial was unique. The Thingvellir choir chanted the Icelandic national song, ’’O God of Our Land," and many in the thou sands on the plain took up the re frain which seemed to roll away tto the mouvtains in a vast tide and echo among the snowy peaks. Prime Minister Tryggvi Thorhals son introduced Christian, amid great applause. When the king, who stands six feet four inches, rose to the rock of the lawgivers, his figure towered tall abo\-e his Icelandic sub jects.

At the hotel, it was said that while staying at the gulf it was his habit to bathe in the gulf in front of the hotel at. both evening and morning and no uneasiness was felt concern ing his welfare until it was discov ered his bed had not been used. He said upon reaching the hotel tills time that he expected to remain for a few days.

JUDGE HOLDS VOTE COUNT IS REQUIRED Noted Hidalgo Suit To Oust Judge Is Lost AUSTIN, June 26—OP)—The state supreme court yesterday overruled a motion for rehearing of the Hi dalgo county district judge election case in which Gordon Griffin claimed J. E. Leslie had been fraud ulently placed in office. In overrul ing the motion, the court repeated its former findings, principally that courts did not have jurisdiction of the case until the election returns had been canvassed by the secre tary of state. Griffin was successful in his suit before the Travis county district court and the third court of civil appeals, but the supreme court re versed these Judgments in favor of Leslie. Griffin claimed he would have been elected had the commissioner*’ court counted the votes in the Wes laco box. These were ruled out by the commissioners on the grounds that the envelope containing the returns was unsealed. Ruling out these votes gave Leslie a majority of 14 votes. The canvass of the returns was stopped by Griffin through injunc tion proceedings The supreme court held that the Judiciary could not review the action tin til the election had been completed by a canvass of the returns. Griffin Still Fighting Gordon Griffin, when called by The Brownsville Herald today and informed of the action of the su preme court, said the fight Is by no means over. * ‘ Of course we will know more about what to do when we receive the opinion, but at present it ap pears it will be cither an election contest or a suit for the office.
