OFFICIAL SLAP FOR MANY Treaty Breaches Are deplored’ By Group Of Nations; Future Steps Studied (Copyright, 1036, by the AP) GENEVA, April 17—The League of Nations council Wednesday adopt ed the tri-power resolution condemn ing Germany for her repudiation of treaty obligations with only Den mark abstaining from voting. The resolution, presented jointly * by Prance, Great Britain and Italy, deplored unilateral abrogation of treaty obligations and requested that the league appoint a committee to consider what measures, economic and financial, may be taken against future repudiators of international commitments. Dr. Peter Munch, Danish foreign minister, in the discussion which preceded the voting, explained Den mark would not cast its ballot be* cause ahe feared adoption of the res olution would lander “the task of reconciliation.” Joseph M. Beck. Polish foreign minister, voted for the tri-power res olution, presumably, league authori ties «aid, under strong persuasion from France. Poland previously had Indicated her hostility toward the declaration because of its proposals for invoking sanctions against fu ture treaty violators. An attempt by Maxim Litvinoff soviet commissar for foreign affairs, to extend the implications of the resolution to parts of the world ether than Europe was overriden. The soviet delegate's proeopal was opposed by Sir John Simon. British foreign secretary, who asked the council to confine itself to “prac tical measures so all our efforts won’t be lost in shallows and miser Set.** Foreign Minister Pierre Laval of France supported Sir John's views and asked Litvinoff not to press his request. Laval suggested that the soviet objective might “more ap propriately be done at another time under other circumstances.” Litvinoff thereupon agreed and the vote was called for on the tri-power resolution as originally introduced by the French foreign minister.

GROWERS DROP ONION PRICE N«w Minimum of $1.40 U Approved By Group In Willacy (8pectal to The Herald) RAYMONDVILLE. April 17. — Willacy county onion growers drop ped their pegged price to $1.40 in view of the heavy shipments Tues day. when 77 carloads were moved, and were successfully holding the price there. This price, with a total of about 860 carloads already moved. Is in great contrast to last season when with only 161 cars shipped the price was 75 to 85 cents a 50-pound sack. About two-thirds of the Willacy county crop has been moved to date, and the peak of the move ment will be passed by Thursday, with gradual drop from then on. At the present price the county will receive more than $1,000,000 for its entire crop, which is expected to be around 1200 to 1400 carloads. The growers reiterated their de termination to stand by the pegged price at a mass meeting held here Monday night, at which time R. Roy Ruff of Brownsville, president of the Tri-County Producers Asso ciation. reported on the results of his conference with Laredo growers.

Willacy county farmers Wednes day were optimistic over the out come of the price-pegging move, which checked a market that was going steadily downward. Even at $140 a 50-pound sack growers will receive almost $100 an acre for their onions. Teachers For Next Session Are Selected (Special to The FPrsId) SAN BENITO.

And under old-time methods of heating water, it really was a luxury in every sense of the word. The cost and inconvenience was so great, that plenty of hot water was placed in the ne cessity class. Fortunately for present day folks, that condition no longer exists. You can have ALL the really HOT water you want or need at such a ridiculously low cost, us ing Natural Gas for Fuel. For . a few cents a day—less than you pay for your daily newspapers — you can have an unfailing supply of hot water ample for your every need. Use either an Automatic Gas Storage Water Heater, or an Instantaneous Gas Water Heater. The one keeps a tankful of hot water always ready, the other heats the water as it runs through the pipes. Either is very efficient, it’s only a matter of choice. Why Deny Yourself the Luxury of Plenty of Hot Water-Let NATURAL GAS supply you with all you can use!
