AID LAW VALID
BEAUMONT, Nov. 3.—The Texas
mortgage “moratorium” law is con-
stitutional, the Ninth Court of Civil
Appeals railed here today in an opin-
ion returned in the suit of the Beau-
mont Petroleum Syndicate against
J. E. Broussard'to postpone, under
terms of the statute, a foreclosure
The oil firm had been denied an
injunction in Sixtieth Distinct Court
here. The appellate court held that
the denial was in error and that the
injunction should be granted.
The law, it was. cited in $ie opinion
by Associate' justice W. B. O’Quinn,
does notv impair the contractual obli-
gations of tile mortgagor and mort-
gagee. Even though it did involve
some such impairment, however, the
opinion added, the law still would be
constitutional “as a valid exercise of
the police power of the state,” taking
into account the “unpropitious and
distressing economic conditions exist-
ing generally throughout the coun-
“The legislature has the unques- j
tioned right in all cases to deal with
purely legal remedies,” said the opin-
ion. “This necessarily includes the
right to determine the procedure of
the courts which have the power to
administer the remedy.”
YELLOW JACKETS LOST POLO
GAME TO COLLEGIANS
The Lampasas Yellow Jackets lost
a hard-fought game Sunday to the
University of Texas Collegians by a
score of 4 to 2. According fo an Aus-
tin American sports writer the Lam-
pasas players outrode the Collegians
but just couldn’t score on them. It
was a heretofore unknown substitute
player who turned out to be the star
of the game for the University by
scoring three of their points.
All of the Lampasas players did
skillful playing but they just couldn’t
put over the winning points. Pat-
terson and Gillen did the scoring for
The Yellow Jackets aren’t at all

game Sunday, and are going right

The seventh day of the Spiritual
Advancement Program was carried
out as planned. The pastor brought
to the people a very worthwhile mes-
sage, depicting the tender and com-
passionate love of Jesus, toward man
from the text, “I am the good shep-
herd, I know my sheep and I am
known of them.”
The subject of the evening service
was the “Church” and every mes-
sage bore directly upon the church.
One feature of this service was the
prayers of some of the early church
fathers that were read, while the con-
gregation sat with bowed heads. The

The pastor told of a letter he had
received from Dr. Geo. Fender, say-
ing how Texas Presbyterians had en-
tered into this program in a most
gratifying way. And it has certain-
ly been gratifying too, in the local
church here, the interest has been
good, very few have been unable to
nil places in the program when re-
quested to do so.—Reporter.

PROCESSING TAX ON CORN
IS CUT TO FIVE CENTS
WASHINGTON, Nov. 5,—The
American Federation of Labor’s Oc-
tober survey of business today re-
ported several fundamental improve-
ments in the country’s, economic life,
although it said the individual work-
er’s buying power was still declining
It credited employment of more
than 1,000,000 persons to the $3,300,-
000,000 public works fund, including
Total reemployment of 4,000,000
was claimed for NRA codes and the
Blue Eagle agreement.
The drop in individual buying pow-
er totaled 2.3 per cent in September
from the March level, though the av-
erage amount of money received was
six per cent higher. Only May and
June put the worker’s “real income”
ahead of March and then by two
On the drop in purchasing power,
the federation said:
“NRA wages have not brought
higher living standards to the aver-
age worker. A sjx^per cent increase
in wages has been eaten up in an 8.5
per cent increase in living costs and
he finds his real monthly income in
September actually below March by
2.3 per cent. Some codes have re-
duced minimum wage rates below
those actually in force in the indus-
try, as in silk; in other cases, em-
ployers have reduced their higher-
paid workers to raise the low-paid
“Thus better-paid workers where
there were no unions have lost under
codes, while the minimum group have

Hours are shorter, men are going
back to work. The worker knows
that wage and hour scales are not
permanent, for wages must be adjust-
ed upward as prices rise, hours down-
ward as machinery shortens working
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4.—Secretary
Wallace tonight cut the processing
ax on field corn, which becomes ef-
fective tomorrow, to 5 cents per bush-
el until December 1, when it would
be put at 20 cents per bushel. The
tax originally had been set at 28c
Wallace explained that the initial
tax rate was reduced as a result of
evidence produced at a public hear-
ing here this week.
He said testimony and data pre-
sented at that time “indicated that
"he. processing tax of 28 cents would
cause a reduction in the consumption
of corn and tend to build up a bur-
Instead of paying floor taxes at
the rate of 28 cents on corn or its
products which manufacturers have
on hand, the tax on their stocks will
be effective at the lower rate. Floor
taxes are collected from manufac-
turers and wholesalers. Retailers
have 30 days in which to dispose of
their floor stocks before those ac-
quired prior to tomorrow" become col-

DETROIT, Nov. 4.—Despite the re-
covery administration’s-offer to “con-
sider an exception” if Henry Ford
wishes to abandon his announced plan
of layoffs to conform with NRA code
work-hours, the Ford Motor Com-
pany, without replying to the offer,
tonight went ahead with plans to
put the layoffs into effect.
Nine thousand workmen, the com-
pany announced, will be laid off next
week, and similar numbers in - suc-
ceeding weeks, to bring the average
Ford hours down from 40 a week to
35, as provided in the auto code.
This, the company was represent-
ed as believing, is another Ford move
to “comply fully with the law,” de-
spite the fact that Henry Ford be-
lieves the hours provision of the auto
code is a “new prohibition against
work in this country.”
No comment was made on Recov-
ery Administrator Hugh S. Johnson’s
statement in Washington that he as-
sumed the layoffs were being made
because Ford production had fallen
off seasonally, but that he would be
glad to “consider an/ exception” to
the auto code if Ford wants to give
work to the men being laid off. There
were no indications that the com-
pany planned an immediate reply.
Automotive officials said that pro-
duction in all factories generally is
slow during the present season, while
new models are in process of pro-
duction. Ford, it was indicated, feels,
that the plan of reducing hours is
merely another step in his announc-
ed intention to “obey the law in all
respects,” although he does not con-
sider signing the auto code or fly-
ing a blue eagle “in the law.”
When the Ford company did not
sign the code many weeks ago, a
company statement said: “In order to
live up to the code, we would have to
live down to it.” This was recalled,
in the light of the company’s state-
ment that it “is taking this manda-
tory step in complian.ee with the new
prohibition against work in this
Ford has been represented all along
as feeling that his factory “goes the
NRA one better” in the matter of
wages and hours.
