WET WASH PRICE
Make us prove our Price is lower
At our iow price of 4c per pound for Wet Wash we can do your
laundry cheaper than you can do it at home, and we will be
glad to prove it. The actual cost of materials you can purchase
is more than 4c per pound—to Gay nothing of the cost of your
Investment and the tune and worry of operating it.
We urge you to investigate the relative cists' of doing your
laundry at home and of sending it to our modern plant You
already know we'can do it better. We can rJso prove that we
can do it cheaper.

Austin.—The black shadow of next
summer's political campaigns, which
has never been very far in the
background—fell athwart the legis
lative halls last week, as the two
houses maneuvered for place.
The Senate, which has hammer
ed away for four months with every
tool in its kit to make the House
accept its plan of FOISTING A

rOTIONAL AMENDMENT UPON
THE PEOPLE, and four times has
been turned back by an undaunted
House minority, opened the skir-
mish by adopting a resolution at-
tempting to "reason" the House
into doing what political sharp-
shooting, brute force, sulking and
other tactics on the part of the
upper body, have failed lo accom-
plish. It recited the background of
the social security program, cited
precedent for fixing t*-: rates for
pensions in the Constitution, and
urged the House to PASS ITS
SALES TAX AMENDMENT.
Ilcuse Hits Back:
The House, as unconvinced by
tardy "sweet reasonableness" by the
Senate as it had been by repeated
attempts to beat its ears down,
promptly replied by adopting by an
overwhelming vote, an omnibus tax
bill calculated to nvjxr, in the shnpr
it left the House, about $16,000,000
annually for social stfsurity. It upr,

vote wm 110 to 96, m the sales tax
bloc member* scrambled to get on
the band wagon, and write a re-
cord of "aiding the old folks." Rep.
Ross Hardin tried to eubetltute the
gross receipts tax bill for the mea-
sure, ond Rep W. N. Corry sought
to kill it by striking out the en-
acting clause. The floor fight for
it was led by O. C. Morris of
Greenville, leader of the AifTI-
SALES TAX BLOC. t
Think Senate Will Take It:
What the Senate will do with the
bill Is problematical at this writ-
ing, but majority opinion Inclines
to the belief the House has PUT
THE SENATE IN A SPOT, and
that the upper body will adopt the
bill in some form, after consider-
The poor old barbers price fixing
bill, which got a second lease on
life by withdrawal of a veto mes-
sage after Gov. O'Daniel had sign-
ed it, was finally sunk when the
governor again vetoed it, after At-
torney General Gerald Mann held
It unconstitutional a second time,
after patchwork amendments failed
lo make it legal.

Cigarct smokers of Texas, who

Lax rap if the House omnibus bill
tax money to the state's till in
1938, said Sam Kimberlln, comp-
troller's deputy who looks after the
collections. — Gov. O'Daniel also
swung the veto ax on another bill
by Clint Small designed to elimin-
ate some appeals from district
courts to Courts of Civil Appeals,
on writs of error. Lobby talk was
that Secretary of State Tom Beau-
champ, who often advises O'Daniel
on legal matters, didn't like the bill
and advised a veto.—It's a felony
offense now to break out of Jail In
Texas. Final okay was given by the
governor to the bill authored by
Sen. W. E. Stone of Galveston,
which grew out of a Galveston jail-
break in which a guard was shot,
and it was found the law provided
no adequate penalty.—The filibust-
ering Senate, still trying to avoid
a vote on the so-called PAIR TRADE
ACT. took no final action on the
county bond indebtedness bill, but
debated the Clint Small substitute,
already adopted, which would pre-
vent a "grab" of millions by bond
speculators, by repaying the coun-
ties only back payments on state-
designated highway bonds, and
leave the problem of the lateral
road bonds to the counties to work
out for themselves.

adjournment June 3, and Indicated
It will "alt tight" until the Senate
makes a record on the omnibus
tax bill. Many observers here think
the bitter controversy with the
Legislature, and the apparent vic-
tory of the anti-sales tax group over
the Governor has weakened O'Dan-
iel with the people, and will make
difficult his. re-election. Others were
as strongly of the opinion the Gov-,

body, and win again the votes of

Ferguson Raises Feeble Voice:
The sales tax advocates have
never given up the battle, and
many of them still cling to the
hope that the House may be pres-
sured into accepting it at the last
minute. Ex-Gov. Jim Feruson raised
his now feeble voice in behalf of
the constitutional amendment pro-
gram this week, with a letter to
legislators, declaring there are 400,-
000 persons in Texas over 65, and
It will require $72,000,000 a year to
pay them $15 a month.

FACTS ABOUT RATTLESNAKES
Rattlesnakes do not charm their
prey; they do not swallow their
young; do noL go blind in August,
do not relish direct heat of the
sun; do not welcome a fight; will
not strike unless disturbed or frigh-
tened; do not always rattle before
striking; cannot strike without first
throwing themselves into a loose
'S" shaped coil.
These are just a few tilings that
rattlesnakes do not do, as pointed
out by W. T. (Bill) Sweet, widely-
known Butte sportsman who long
age turned his attention to this
form of hunting.
Rattlers are secretive and mild
when approached. They will usually
remain quiet in order to avoid de-
tection, and when discovered will
endeavor to esca|>o if given the op-
portunity. Tt is only when they are
frightened and cornered that they
will stand their ground with a
strident warning to the intruder.
They will not strike unless disturb-
ed or frightened. They do not al-
ways rattle before striking. They
can bite without coiling, but can-
not strike without first throwing
themselves into a lose "S" shaped
coil. The strike rarely exceeds half
the length of the snake. A big rat-
tler. thoroughly alarmed, is cer-
tainly something both to see and
hear. Not only is the rattle sound-
ed continuously but the cornered
snake inhales and exhales with a
violent hiss, witli boddy flattened.
A large rattler can puncture thin
flexable leather. Since rattlesnakes
are not naturally vicious, and do
not attack unless disturbed, t lie
principal danger to hiker or hunter
re-.ults from walking along a trail
without watching his step, so that

Hair ropes, of course, are en-
tirely ineffective in keeping rattle-
snakes out of a camp. A snake
which does not hesitate to crawl
over cactus could hardly be ex-
pected to notice a hair rope.
