AUSTIN. March 15. —<AV- The
question of submitting prohibition
repeal was the next important busi
fadng the house of represen
ts Friday after It had approv.
1 $3,000,000 appropriation for the
Texas centennial.
When consideration of submission
was stopped temporarily a few days
ago, the house was debating a com
promise suggestion of Representa
tive Alfred Petsch of Fredericks
burg. and the senate had approved
submission next August 34 at a spe
cial election.
Unde* PcUcn's resolution, the
question of repealing the present
bone-dry constitutional amendment
would be submitted and a system of
wate sales of bard liquor would be
substituted The senate resolution
submitting repeal merely author
ised the legislature to set up a state
monopoly over hard lljuor.
The house passed the centennial
appropriation bill Thursday. 103 to
S3, the heavy majority making It
effective Immediately If It received
21 votes in the senate, where spon
sors said it would be brought up
The long-pending subject of a
planning board to correlate state
and federal relief programs, advo
cated by Governor James V. Allred,
was finally cleared as both house
and senate adopted a conference
report adjusting differences
The house also passed a bill ap.
proprtatir ~ $227,538 for summer
schools and state colleges, but be
cause the senate had approved an
appropriation of $380,000 a confer
ence committee was in order.
uespite cnarges tnat tne issue
was being avoided, a senate com
mittee reported favorably. 9 to 4. a
bill by Senator Frank Rawlings of
Fort Worth prescribing eou::'y local
option elections as a pre-requisite
to holding horse racing meets at
which wagering was permitted.
Rawlings’ resolution was a substi
tute for one by Senator Joe Hill of
Henderson to repeal the law legal
izing wagering on horse races. On
the substitution, the committee
vote was 7 to 6.
A similar local option bill by Re- j
presentatlve Traylor Russell and a j
bill by Representative Firry Or»vw
of Georgetown providing outright
repeal have been reoorted favorably
by a house committee
The house appropriations com- j
mlttee voted, 11 to 5. to grant the ,
request of heads of the state's high
er educational Institutions and re
commend lump appropriations for
* those schools for the next bien
nium. The appropriations have
been itemized for many years.
The committee also voted. 12 to 1. j
to recommend an appropriation of
$20 per student to municipal Ju
nior colleges. These colleges here
tofore have received no state aid.
Exemption of Christian Science
practitioners from the Medical
Practice Act. opposed by the State
Medical Association, was tejected by
the senate health committee as it
killed. 5 to 1. a bill tv Senator
Claud Westerfeld of Dallas.
Christian Science practitioners
contended the prohibition against
dbnrging for services denied them
moans of a livelihood, as the church
restricted their business endeavors,
and that strict obedience to the ,
Jaw would force n’1 of their church- !
es in Texas to dost.
Dr. Holm?n 'i a\ lot of Fort Worth

removal of the entire sub-section of
the act referring to churches, which ,
he contended would permit Christ- |
lan Scientists to operate in their
proper sphere *
"We can’t agree to eliminating
the no-pay feature." he said, for
with that removed, "they would

up and down the coa.«t in the
neighborhood of the mouth of the
Colorado river, where, by arranye
ment. The Lively, which had left
New Orleans in November with col

ger knowledge of the Texas coast
line, the captain of The Livelv had
put in at the mouth of the Brazos
river under the impression it wa«
that of U" Colorado. There th**
colonist passengers disembarked
some to remain and settle ar
others to shortly return to the*
homes due to the confusion arisi
from the mistake and their cor
