SMITH 20 HAVE ANOTHER DISTRICT El Paso will get another congress man "when the Texas legislature meets for a reapportionment; - Texas is to have four new congressmen and El Paso is sure to get one of them. Rep resentative W. R. Smith will be cut out of this end of the state. Claude V. Hudspeth, who is serving hfs second term as state senator, and, whrf, prior to his selection for that oCfice, was a member of the lower house for two terms, and is a resident of El Paso, is v. candidate for the job. Commenting on the reapportionment, former mayor -Jos. U. Sweeney said Tuesday morning: "Our district now runs all the way to Mineral "Wells, and It is likely that a new district will "be formed runing up to Val Verde and giing E1 Pso a new congressman. This will leave Smith out in another district and we can have a man from our own city. El Paso will be the t largest city in the new district and is entitled to representation by a man I who knows the city and knows all off southwest Texas.

All of my political ambitions have been satisfied- I am now devoting my time to the practice of my profession. I believe El Paso should be represented in the next congress by a man right from this district. "Sir. Hudspeth will be a candidate for the nomination and he will get it. His successor as state senator will "probably be a man from the lower part of this district." CLAIM SASONOFF ENDED 0W LIFE St. Petersburg, Russia, Dec. 33 The report that M.
