He made it out of potatoes and has something left to boot. And lots of the boys are making money out of potatoes this yea:, just as lots of them are making good money out of tomatoes. Here and there we find sections in which the potato crop was dam aged severely by the cold of last February, and what hard luck it is that certain of our growers should be caught with a short crop in a season which has seen fairly good prices Its entire length. • • a I FRIDAY WILL SEE THE first real “Cinco de Mayo” celebra tion— Which Brownsville has enjoyed in years. The 71st anniversary of the Bat tle of Puebla, Will be observed in fitting style. Mexican Consul S. J. Trevino and Ignacio Guerra have supplied the •park, Which has resulted in the occas ion.

Frank Robertson reports from Washington, as The Herald told you Yesterday, that the secretary of state has recommended an appro priation of $4,700,000 for the com - pletion oi the flood control proj ect of the Valley. And the director of the budget is reported to favor an immediate ap propriation of $1,000,000 from the $500,000,000 reforestation appropria tion so as to start the work at once, This million would probably be charged against our total $4,700,000 appropriation when It is made. But—the Valley gets some im mediate action on its flood control project and— Men will get work out of the re forestation funds just as if the Val ley's project were included in the reforestation work. So—everybody ought to be happy.

Wouldn’t Brownsville schools be doing a fine thing, seting a tine example, if the cap and gown idea were thrown out this year? We have a distinct hunch that our teachers, carting unspendable scrip around in their pockets, would be glad to save that $2.50. And we have a further hunch that father would be glad to put that $2.50 into a dress for daughter or a pair of white trousers for son, . that the;’ could wear after gradua tion, not just for one hour. Think it over. • • • AND TO THOSE WHO ARE crying for rain, We pause to remark that the longer the rain holds off. Just that long will our tomatoes.

(JP)— Fifty four dead from the tornadoes in three southern and one mid western states late yesterday, had been counted today by rescue work ers who estimated that more bodies may be found as the wTeckage is cleared. Earlier estimates had placed the dead at 89 and the injured at more than 1,000 from spasmodic tor nadoes that lashed the Mississippi valley Sunday, and Monday. Louisiana Hardest Hit Minden, La., palish seat of Web ster, which felt the full force of yesterday’s storm, thus far has counted 35 dead and more than 200 injured, many previously.

Relief work was divided into two phases, extending mecbcal atten tion to the most seriously injured and the recovery and identifica tion of bodies buried beneath debris. $1,500,000 Damage At Minden most sorely stricken of the devastated towns, order was maintained through general civic co-operation, and with aid of militia, and of all the resources of the Barksdale field, United States army aviation base, and of medical as sistance and food for the destitute dispatched from Shreveport.

Relief workers in the field notified Harmon that the supplies were sufficient for the present. Property damage was unofficial ly estimated at $1,500,000. Minden, paralyzed by the sudden death and destruction, was with out lights or means of communica tions last night, but perfect orler was maintained and precautions of National Guardsmen, commanded by Capt. Robert A. Kennon, against possible disorder proved unnecessary. ‘Appalling’ Conditions Comunications remained severed to the Webster parish seat until nearly noon today when one tele phone wire was opened and devoted almost exclusively to official relief use. An appeal to the general public to come to the assistance of the stricken residehts of the storm area was issued by the Caddo-Bossier chapter of the American Red Cross. Urgent need of food, money, furni ture and miscellaneous supplies was voiced. The American Legion establish ed a supply depot to receive contri butions in cooperation with the Red Cross and other organizations sim ilarly assisted. Leonard Daniels, Legion post commander, ,vho spent last night in Minden, described the condition in the tornado area as “appalling.” Wheat Gains Are Highest Since ’31 CHICAGO, Mya 2.—UP)— Wheat recovered from an early slump in prices today and drove ahead to the highest levels of the season just before the close.

SALES DELAY RESULTS IN UNCERTAINTY Attorneys Here Think New Moratorium Is Unconstitutional A test of the constitutionality of the moratorium on foreclosures may grow out of three sales under deeds of trust held at the Cameron coun ty courthouse Tuesday morning. In one case the sale was agreed be tween all parties. Unconstitutional? This was in violation of the ex tension of the moratorium on foreclosures granted by the legis lature late Monday. The sales were held under the theory that the moratorium would eventually be declared unconstitutional. The courthouse was thronged Tuesday with attorneys seeking in formation on sheriff and deed of trust sales. They were divided as to what actions to take in viewT of the two measures passed by the state legislature Monday. The first provided injunctions against sales could be obtained in district court on showing that reasonable value could not be secured under forced sale, and that taxes had been paid up within four years. The injunctions hold for 180 days and can be extended another 180 if facts in the case stand up. The other measure was an ex tension cf the moratorium on fore closures during May. Sheriff Holds Up Sales Sheriff W. Frank Brown, acting under the last measure, declined to hold sheriff sales, although some attorneys declared the meas ure unconstitutional. Co. Atty. Chas. Bowie held that the sheriff’s office must presume the law to be constitutional until it is proved otherwise. Pour injunctions against sales under deeds of trust were granted by Judge A. M. Kent.

The vote was 18 to 10, three short of the required 21 votes necessary to sub mit the proposition. Failure to submit the amendment might result in the withdrawal of Reconstruction Finance corporation relief funds from Texas, the cor poration having stated it would not be dispused to allot any more funds to Texas unless the state took steps to aid itself. The governor signed two bills to grant relief to hard pressed prop erty owners whose holdings were mortgaged and in danger of being disposed of at forced sale. One of the bills would authorize district courts to postpone for 180 days the forced sale of property on affidavit and proof that the prop erty probably would not sell for its actual value. Another extension of 180 days would be allowed if condi tions had not improved by the end of the first period of grace. The other bill would postpone un til June the sale of real estate set for today under mortgage foreclos ure actions and deeds of trust. Both laws became effective immed iately.
