Citrus Exchange Is
Expanding Rapidly;
Mercedes Is Member
t Special 10 Inc dcrsldl
MrXvcEUEti. Aug. 12.—Affiliation
of tile Rio Grande Valley Citrus
Growers association of Mercedes, one
of the three largest cc-operative
marketing organizations in the Val
ley. with the Rio Grande Valley Cit
rus Exchange of Weslaco, largest of
the co-operative groups, was an
nounced hete Saturday by Harry M.
Rouse, general manager of the as
sociation.
A meeting of association members
Friday night resulted m final de
cision to join the Valley-wide ex
change as its 13th unit or local as
sociation. Organization of the Mer
cedes unit will remain intact. Rouse
continuing as manager in the san e
capacity as the other Exchange units
maintain their local managers.
Dr. Clem D. McCoy of Mercedes
was named director from the Mer
cedes unit to the Exchange’s central
board and J. W. Harrison of Mer
cedes was named alternate.
The Mercedes association is one
of the oldest co-operative citrus as
sociations in the Valley, having been
organized in 1925. Since that time,
it has maintained its own market
ing connections in the United States
and Canada.
Rouses formal statement follows:
“The Rio Grande Valley Citrus
Growers' association of Mercedes,
which has been operating as a
strictly growers’ co-operative since
1925 and for many years worked to
ward consolidation of Valley citrus
growers into one major organiza
tion controlling the sale and dis
tribution of Valley citrus fruit, has.
in furtherance of this program. Join
ed the Rio Grande Valley Citrus Ex
change.
“The members, directors and offi
cers of this association realize, and
believe that all citrus growers in
the Valley realize, that many chan
ges must be made in the sale and
distribution of our fruit if it was to
receive all the returns we are entitled
to on the capital and labor invested
in our groves. That the growers real
ize this is evidenced by the meet
ings and discussions now taking
place, and the efforts being made to
work out some plan for a clearing
house that might be workable and
effective. All of these meetings and
discussions would be unnecessary if
a large majority of the growers
would join some cooperative.
“That there were altogether too
many shippers quoting our fruit
out tc the markets is well known to
every grower, and to help correct
this situation is one of the reasons
for this association Joining the ex
change. The members of this associa
tion urge every grower to Join some
co-operative marketing organization
and then stand steadfastly by it
Some day you are going tc do it and
the longer you put it off. Just so long
must you put up with a demoralized
marketing condition. (Signed» Rio
Grande Valley Citrus Growers’ as
sociation. by H. M Rouse, manager.”
Frank Hall, who came to Merce
des as Valley manager for the Cal
ifornia Vegetable Union, and who
remained to act as sales agent for
the Mercedes cooperative, recently

change. worked in clc*e harmony
with the sales managers of that ex
change.
With the recent election of Harry
Banker of Brownsville as president
of the exchange and Jack Hager as
sales manager, efforts were renewed
to secure the affiliation of the
Mercedes cooperative, a strong or
ganization, with the exchange. Dur
ing its years of operation the Mer
cedes cooperative has controlled a
large part of the citrus fruit of the
Mercedes area an has been fort
tunate in having affiliated the lead
ing growers of the territory .
With its addition to the exchange,
approximately 100 new members are
added to that organization, with a
potential of around 300 cars of cit
rus fruit.
Exchange officials and others close
to the Valley marketing situation
see in the merger of the Mercedes
cooperative with the exchange a
sign that the Valley marketing situ,
ation is working itself out to a point
where a sufficiently large tonnage
wil lbe under the control of one
marketing organization to allow a
larger degree of price stabilization
and control of shipments than has
prevailed in past yeasr.

HEATED TAX
FIGHT SEEN
Sonata May Ba Hitting
Little Man to Balk
'Soak Rich' Plan
WASHINGTON. Aug. 12—<ypy—
Some legislators predicted Monday
that If the senate should vote to
bring the “little fellow’s pocketbook
within the scope of the new tax bill,
a senate-house deadlock may force
the Roosevelt administration to
scrap the tax bill for this session.
This feeling, together with an
open split between two noted sena
torial Independents, forecast new
and hotter fighting on the contro
versial Issue.
Senator Borah (R-Ida) attacked
the senate finance committee plan
for lower exemptions and higher
taxes on small incomes—a plan
which Senator LaPollette (Pro-Wis)
succeeded in getting the committee
to substitute for the house program
last Saturday.
“To increase taxes in this region
and among these tax-payers is to
accentuate thier burden which al
ready is heavy enough and neces
sarily to lower their standard of
l.ving,” Borah said In a Sunday
xvght statement. He said he would
vote against such a move, and that
other indepents were “critical'’ of
It.
mie LaPollette plan lowers .in-!
come tax exemptions for married
persons from the present $2,500 to
$2 000 and for single persons from
$1000 to $800. and increases the
surtaxes all along the line. The
house bill would leave present taxes
an income below $50,000 unchanged).
Legislators who forecast a possible
‘ scrapping of the whole tax program,
j while unwilling to be quoted by
name, pointed to expert estimates
'that 1,500.000 persons with small
| incomes would be added to the in
come tax-payers rolls under the new
, amendment. They also reminded
newsmen that all seats in the house
are at stake in next year’s election.
‘HOOVER DEAL’
IS RECALLED
Even Republicans Think
Ex - President Should
Stay In Background
WASHINGTON, Aug. 12. f/PV—
Amidst disagreement whether Her
bert Hocver seeks presidential nom
ination. Senator Robinson—the dem
ocratic leader—answered the former
president's challenge to the New
Deal Monday with a declaration that
one administration aim is “to over
come the drastic effects of Hoover
policies."
The Hoover statement, saying
President Roosevelt should reveal
“what changes this administration
proposes in the constitution” be
fore congress adjourns, was s major
topic as the legislators returned to
their desks.
Some republicans agreed with Rob
inson It showed the ex-president was
a candidate for another term, but
Representative Treadway <R-M3ss)
commented “half the people are
against the New Deal, and they
aren’t all candidates."
“Roosevelt objectives have been
clear from the beginning,” said Rob
inson. "One h3s been to overcome
the drastic effects of Hoover poli
cies; another, to improve permanent
ly living conditions and opportuni
ties for the people generally.”
Representative Knutson fR
Minnt. backing Representative Pish
of New York for republican presi
dential nomination said “Hoover
could render no greater service tc the
country than to anounce ne will not
be a candidate.” .

Hoover Makes Bid
To Run Again But
Borah Crowding In
WASHINGTON. Aug. 12- (*>—Her
bert Hoover’s challenge to President
Roosevelt to inform the people
“openly” and “precisely" Just how
he wants the constitution changed
waa regarded Monday as a major
step In a republican drive for a
knock-down-and-drag-out fight on
constitutional Issues in 1936.
Stopping in Chicago on a trip east,
the former president hit at the new
deal Sunday night In a statement
accusing the administration of "dic

“primary liberties of the people’’ and

BUDGETSTEPS
ARE EXPECTED
Expenses And Income May
Be Balanced By Next
Year, Believed
WASHINGTON. Aug. 12. (JPh
Hope that the budget will be balanc
ed next year was expressed Mon
day by the cne democratic member
of congress who has more to do
with the budget than any other leg
islator.
Already this session, with one oth
er money bill yet to pass, congress
has appropriated $8,153,000,000—
Twice as much as the ordinary bud
get. A total of $4,880,000,000 of that
was in the big work relief fund.
Looking over the session. Chair
man Buchanan (D-Tex) of the house
appropriations committee, which
starts all appropriations bills
through congress, remarked:
“I think there’s a good chance of
& balanced budget next session"
Ask*>d about reports that $2,000
000,000 would be asked next session
for relief, which might throw the
budget out balance again. Buch
anan replied:
“Asking for that and getting it
are two different things. Of course I
th’nk we could scrape up $1 750.000.
000 or $2 080<M)0 000 and still have a
balanced budget.
“I figure that the country has re
covered so much that we -vont have
to spend so much next year and that
we can stop solending and begin to
collect some of the loans we’ve made.
Our incime is increasing too. of
course, but I’m net figuring that in
on the budget balancing."
make It an open fight on a specifi
cally worded amendment, he said:
"No matter how destructive an
amendment might be and even
though the people were persuaded to
ill-advised action upon it, yet it
would be better for liberty to com
mit suicide in the open rather than
to be poisoned by indirection in the
capital of the nation.
"No more momentous decision has
been raised since the Civil war.
Common frankness requires that the
administration come forward to the
people and declare precisely where
in, under our constitution, we can
not correct evils and can not prevent
social maladjustments.”
While some republicans and dem
ocrats interpreted the statement as a
bid by Mr. Hoover for the presiden
tial nomination next year, others
denied this was necessarily the cor
rect way to construe it.
Meantime, there was no indication
that President Roosevelt, who re
turned Sunday night from a fish
ing trip on the yacht Sequoia, would
make no statement Prom Repre
sentative Vinson (D-Ky.) came the
comment: "No constluional amend
ment has been submitted and no
body has said that there will be ’’
Declaring he had no doubt that
Mr. Hoover would run in 1936. Gib
son (R-Vt > called the statement a
“preliminary outline of his plat
form.” To Representative Dies <D
Texas) it was the former presi
dent's "opening bid” while Senator
Nye CR-N. D.) thought it signified
a "desire to be the candidate.”
One who took a different viewpoint
was Senator Stetwer (R-Ore.) He
said:
"He could make that kind of a
statement whether he intended to
be a candidate or not. And others
have said much the same thing re
cently. including Senator BorahJ'
Among those who remained silent
was Senator Borah (R-Ida ), who
himself raised the con.'! itutional is
sue recently. While Hoover was
making his statement, Robert L
Lucas, former executive director of
the republican national committee,
was making public the results of a
poll, which he said gave Borah more
votes than any other for the 1936
presidential nomination.
Out of 7.565 county chairmen, city
leaders and young republicans who

"the danger of a World war again”
In an address at the palace Monday
to the civil, military, and religious
authorities of Ethiopia.
He said the empire places its hope
for peace in the ‘impartiality of the
league of nations.”
Referring to the World war. the
emperor said, "history is repeating
itself in this crisis.”
He declared: "Ethiopia never
wanted to hurt Italy's Interests and
prestige.”
Leaders who were summoned to
hear the address, following a crown
council meeting, stated: "We have
cabled our felicitations to President
Roosevelt for his declaration to the
press concerning the maintenance
of peace.”
Discussing the Paris conversations
between France, Italy and Great
Britain — beginning Thursday —
Haile Selassie referred to them as
"the meeting to which we have not
been invited."
"Although it is impossible to fore
tell the result of this meeting.” he
added, "the end of the rainy season
is approaching. Despite all the
means being employed to find a
peaceful solution of the conflict.
Italy continues unceasingly to send
troops and war materials to her two
adjoining colonies.”
Reaffirming Ethiopia's faith in
the ‘‘great and powerful” Great Bri
tain and France, the emperor pledg
ed his country's readiness to "col
laborate loyally and frankly with all
nations regardless of race or religi
on who collaborate loyally with
Ethiopia." ,
Haile Selassie reiterated Ethio
pia’s determination to defend the
ancient empire "to the last drop of
blood" against aggression, at the
same time rejecting “anything which
will hinder it* Independence, lessen
its sovereignty or affect the prestige
of its emperor, its people or its
army."

law enforcement efforts In Texas
were studied Monday by the Pub
lic Safety commission as it pro
ceeded slowly in setting up a new
state department of public safety.
Commissioners met here Sunday
and selected Albert Sidney John
son of Dallas as chairman. They
did not appoint any of the execu
tive personnel for the department,
announcing they would not act
hastily.
Meanwhile, the Texas Ranger
force passed directly to their con
trol. Command was relinquished
automatically by Adjutant General
Carl Nesbitt upon effectiveness of
the act. He would continue as
adjutant general over the Texas
National Guard.
Commissioners indicated city po
lice chiefs would be called into con
ference to discuss compacts for co
operative radio communication and
road blockade systems. State funds
were not available for a central
broadcast unit.
Another proposal advanced by
the commission was expansion of a
highway patrol training school into
an instructional unit for all mem
bers of the new department and
local officers who wished to attend.
Johnson said there would be lit
tle change in the assignment of
duties between the patrol and
ranger force. Patrolmen, con
tinuing as enforcers principally of
highway laws, would take on the
added task of “eyes of the depart
ment."
Through daily contacts with local
officers, they would be called on
to supplement crime information
gathered by rangers.
Members of the two branches,
transferred intact by the act for a
six-months probationary period,
were assured by Johnson "every
man has an even chance."
Competitive examinations and
further tests in a training school
were ordered for applicants to
fill 27 new positions in the patrol
for which appropriation was made
by the legislature.
