‘Talk Up San Benito*
C. C. Manager Urge*
(Soeclal to Thr Herald)
SAN BENITO. April 12— Pete H
Smith, manager of the chamber of
commerce, told the Rotary club
Thursday some of the things he
Its learned about San Benito since
he came here January 1.
He spoke of the necessity for
talking and boosting San Benito
and maintaining an optimistic
point of view.
Smith also gave high lights of
the good-will trip made to Corpus
Christi recently by a group of
Valley residents.
The Rotarians nominated direc
tors and will vote next Thursday.
The new directors will then elect
new officers to take charge in July.
Dr. W. J. Vinsant presided in
absence of Pres Hugh Robertson.
Visiting Rotarians were E. C.
Watson. Harry Nunn. Hart T. Lon

Henry Tichenor. all of Harlingen
Two local men were guests They
were A. J. Garey and Elmer Mor

Augustin Lara. Mexico's famed

1000 people upon his arrival in San

might be wrong when the promised
payoffs failed to materialize time i
after time as promised and instead,
of dividends the boys wanted more
assessments. They hollered for more
money like a Wall Street broker:
calling on the bucket shop suckers
for margin.
This heresy within the ranks was
so unusual and stirred the brethren
so deeply that they actually gave
h.m back his two dollars. TTiey did;
it in a moment of weakness, how- j
ever. They soon regretted that they
had permitted their emotions to
sway their virile hearts and prompt
ly demanded that the ‘ invester" put!
his two dollars back m the scheme.
He is said to have done so on the
promise that the big payoff would
take place but again it proved to
be the proverbial 'manana.'’ a
Quaint Spanish custom the Drake
Estaters seemed to have picked up
on the border.
The leadership is as changeful as
anything else in the D. E. ranks.
Some months ago when Oscar Hart
zeU was arrested and finally sent
to prison, the local man who had
been ramrodding things got cold
feet and actually told the brethren
; to stay away from his door. The
leadership then passed to a country
man but recently the city dweller
appeared to have resumed his dom
ination. At least when The Herald
appeared on the streets the other
day with the story of Lester Ohm
a-t’a arrest, the D. E.s disappeared
almost at once, gathering at the
; home of ‘he city man.
When they again reappeared on
the streets the word went out not
to read that dirty, lying Browns
ville Herald."
The snooper has been trying to
verify the report that not only
Ohmart but another of the men
arrested in Chicago once lived here.
It also is reported that a Santa
Rosa woman narrowly escaped be
ing caught in the net when the
secret office was raided because she
happened to be back in the Valley
at the time.

Rift In Ranks Results In
Resignation of Chief
NEW ORLEANS. April 11. UP)—
Report* of s political rift between
Senator Huey P. Long and one of
his chief lieutenants. Assistant At

were circulated Friday.
Unconfirmed and undented, the
reports had It that Wallace resign

ful over his conduct of legal mat
ters In behalf of the state admin
“I wont comment on the report,”
was Wallace's terse reply. Long
could not be reached.
Wallace, a long-time friend of
the senator and regarded by him
as an authority on Jurisprudence,
drafted most of the legislation
which established Long as “dicta
tor" of Louisiana and conducted
most of the senator's court battles.
The reported break came soon
after Attorney-General Gaston L.
porterle attempted through the
supreme court to displace District
Judge W. Carruth Jones in the
case in which the administration
sought to gain recognition of 13
police jurors appointed by Gov. O.
K Allen for East Baton Rouge
parish. *
The attorney-general claimed the
judge should be displaced because
he took more than three days to
decide the case. He withdrew his
petition after Judge Jones refused
to grant an injunction which would
have prevented nine elected Jurors
for the parish from functioning.
Wallace had expressly waived the
three-day statutory time limit in
his appearance before the district

Social Security Bill May
Become Football For

WASHINGTON, April 11. —<AV
A number of house republicans
prepared Friday for a concerted
attack against the administration’s
social security bill on the ground
that it would do no good and that
its tax burdens would Increase un
Upon Representative Treadway
(R-Mass) fell the duty of express
ing the attitude of republicans on
the ways and means committee,
which brought the bill before the
house after 11 weeks of study. As
he prepared to unleash his attack,
there were Indications that he
would recommend that the G. O

Meanwhile, an avenue appeared
through which advocates of the
Townsend old-age pension and
Lund eon social security plans
could get a vote on at least the
essence of their proposals. They
contended that under house rules
their complete bills could not be
offered as amendments to the ad
ministration's bill.
But Friday they found that they
could, for example, propose to in
crease from $15 to $100 a month
the maximum federal contribution
toward a pension paid under the
state law. They could even offer
an aryndment to make the federal
government bear the full burden ol
a pension of $200 a month.

Because of a factory reduction we are happy to announce NEW LOW PRICES on guaranteed 1,000 hour
“Jewel” Light Bulbs. Many are unknowingly buying inefficient bulbs bearing no factory guarantee or one
ranging up to only 500 hours, but “Jewels” carry the highest known guarantee, 1,000 hours, yet cost you less than any
other full time lamp. To pay more than our low prices is excessive but to buy low grade lamps at their prices is
surely wastage. See Jewel prices below.
We also quote this week NEW LOW PRICES on high efficiency test thermos bottles and jugs — prices most
appealing — backed by quality. See prices below.
