eral friends and three policemen. The
" latter held the crowd back while Ford
* posed for a score of moving picture
cameras and more than 75 other phof

one hand while he repeatedly doffed
P his hat to the cameras.

by the Democratic caucus this n
afternoon, is stronger than in the
Mr. Whaley made a striking advance,
going to the committee on the
judiciary, which is one of the several
committees which are so im
portant that members who secure assignments
to them are not allowed
to serve on any other committee at

Mr. Finley retains his position as
ranking member of the postoffice committee,
also one of the big committees.
Mr. Lever remains chairman of agricultural
committee, another of the
major class. ^ *
Mr. Aiken continues as the rank- s
ing member of the committee on the
District of Columbia, and also has r
places on the committees on the census

Mr. Byrnes is made chairman of
the committee on mileage, and in addition
is placed on the committees on b
merchant marine and fisheries, roads. 5

banking and currency committee, obtains
positions on the committees on

Friends of Representative Byrnes
made a strong fight to put him on
the appropriations committee as the P
successor of former Representative
Johnson, and he came very near winning,
but the Texas influence in behalf
of Representative Buchanan, of F
that State, was too powerful to be
overcome. Texas has a member of
the ways and means committee as
well as two members of the cabinet.
Merchant marine and fisheries, however,
is a more important committee
than Mr. Byrnes had in the last congress,
and is increasing in import- J

Allendale Man Hit by Auto.
Allendale, Dec. 5.?R. Wvatt
Youngblood was last night about 7
o'clock run over while driving* from
Allendale to Seigling in his buggy,
which was struck by an automobile.
The car struck the horse's head, killing
it instantly, throwing Mr. Youngblood
out, the car passing over his
body. The car was stopped and backed
up to the scene of. the accident,
passing over his body a second time.
It is impossible to arrive at the extent
of Mr. Youngblood's injuries, as
they are principally internal, but he
is in a very serious condition. No
arrests have peen made.
Mr. Youngblood is about 60 years s<
of age and is a sufferer from palsy.
