HE IS OPPOSED i ROAD — (Special to The Herald) McALLEN, Sept. 4— State Sen. Archie Parr, long credited in the lower Rio Granae Valley with pre venting construction of a state highway through Kenedy county as a link in thq Hug-the-Coast highway from Brownsville to Hous ton, Saturday made public his per sonal views toward the highway in a letter to friends here. Sen. Parr also prophesied that the state highway commission would make an early decision concerning the much-desired highway con struction in Kenedy county. ‘Have Never Opposed It’ "I have never opposed building of the Kenedy county road,” the Senator’s letter declared. “What I have opposed was the course first pursued to secure it. I believe my judgment will bear me out in the end for several reasons. “The bill to secure the road, as presented to the last legislature, was vulnerable on several points. I felt that if it was passed, it was headed for endless litigation. because it necessitated a bond issue in Kenedy County.The land owners would have fought it to the last ditch_ “I have always believed that the quickest and surest way to secure this road is through the state high way commission-The landowners of Kenedy county have not opposed the building of this highway. They have opposed and still oppose be ing bonded to build it. Offer Right of Way They have offered to donate the right-of-way for either route that the highway commission sees fit tc designate. They feel that in donat ing the right-of-way they are be ing sufficiently taxed to cover what small benefit this road will be to this sparsely settled county. It is the Valley, Corpus Christi and Houston that will reap the big benefit. With the thousands of dol lars in automobile taxes rolling in every year from these districts, why shouldn’t some of that money be used to build a road that will save them mileage? “I have the assurance,” the latter declared, “that the state highway commission’s survey will be com pleted in a few days and that their decision in the matter will be definitely announced by Septem ber 15 or shortly thereafter. I be lieve if those most interested in the building of this road will con centrate their efforts on the high way commission, they will get a road through Kenedy County ten years sooner than the will by try ing to force one through the legis lature.” Movie Sidelights CAPITOL Characters who thrive on ex citement, seek it every minutes of the day and night, make “Midnignt Club” one of the most enjoyable thrilling pictures of the year.

UP— Whatever may ibe Henry Fordta plans for compliance, or non-com pliance, with the national automo bile code, the motor magnate ap parently is not going to let them interfere with the vacation he and his wife are enjoying in their Huron mountain retreat, far from a tele phone or telegraph office. With the dealine for acceptance of the code less than 24 hours away, there were no indications that Mr. Ford planned an early return to Detroit. In fact, the best informa tion available was that he would remain in his 16-room “oabin” un til Friday or Saturday. Objects to Opening Books Neither was there any indica tion that he was taking steps to compose his differences with pro mulgators and administrators of the automotive code and the National Recovery Act. Those differences pivot about the provisions for collective bargaining with workers and the right of the board administrating the code to inspect the books of signatory com panies. Ford objects to letting com petitors view the inside workings of the close corporation which he fathered and dominates. The information that Fora would not return to Detroit the last of the week was m sharp contradiction to current reports that he was plan ning a quick return trip today, eith er by special train or by plane. Railroad officials denied that any special train had been ordered and the plane rumor was given little credence because of the known re luctance of Mr. Ford to travel by air. Counter-Offensive? It was generally accepted that his plans in connection with the NRA movement called either for compliance or for a vigorous coun ter-offensive—possibly a return to the famous $5 a day minimum wage which brought him world-wide ac claim some years back. The mini mum wage has since been reduced to $4 for an eight-hour day. Already he has announced a min imum wage of 50 cents an hour eight hours a day and five days a week, and compared that scale with the 35-hour-week and the 35-cents an-hour minimum prescribed bv the code for the Detroit area. He also announced—choosing the day when Detroit wras celebrating re-employment attributed to the NRA—that between 3,000 and 4,000 former employes are being called back to his Detroit plants. The pres ent employment figure in the Ford plants was estimated at 42.000. f City Briefs Cedaj shingles and fence posts Phone 1400, Morris Lbr. Co. Adv.

Sold in Browns ville by Eagle Pharmacy and Cis neros Drug Stores—In Rio Hondo by Davidson Drug Co* Adv. j GREGORY WAS OFFERED POST IN U. S. COURT AUSTIN, Sept. 4. VPh-James V. Allred, attorney general of Texas, has brought back from Washington a posthumous story that adds to the lustre already settled about the lift of the late Thomas Watt Gregory of Houston, product of Texaa and lifelong beneficiary of the Univer sity of Texas. The experience was related to All red by Newton D. Baker of Cleve land, O., who was secretary of war I in the cabinet of the late Prea. Woodrow Wilson at the same time Mr. Gregory was attorney general in the same group. Mr. Gregory was too modest to repeat the experience that came to him, a happening that touches fell men. Baker told Allred, and It vim*' so interesting Allred asked permis sion to quote Baker. The former cabinet member acquiesced. Baker said that during Pres. Wilson’s regime there was a vacancy on the U. S. supreme court. “One day,** said Baker to Allred “the president mentioned the vac ancy and suggested that I name someone worthy of appointment to that exalted place. I told the presi dent that he had available in his own cabinet a man who most as suredly could go the supreme court and by his service there not only shed credit on the Wilson admin | istration but bring more honor to the law profession and the judici ary. - “When I mentioned Mr. Gregory * name, the president exclaimed: Why, i have been trying for two weeks to get him to accent the ap pointment.’ "The president said that Mr. Gre gory had demurred because of a slight impediment in his hearing. He told the nation’s chief that he relieved one who sat on the exalted bench of the supreme court should be in possession of all his faculties, sven to perfect hearing. “The president told me he pointed 5Ut to Mr. Gregory that the supreme court room was not spacious and that he was certain he could hear every word uttered by attorneys In their presentations, but Mr. Grega# Insisted one who could not hear tinctly should not sit on the court* Texas never has had a member of the U. S. supreme court. RESOLUTIONS Whereas oui beloved pastor, Brother H. J.
