CANCER SERUM DISCOVERED
BY BRITISH DOCTOR
LONDON, Dec. 5.—Discovery of a
aerum which kills cancer cells after
they have been removed from the
human body, and does no injury to
l^elthy human tissue so removed,
was announced here today by Dr.
Thomas Lumsden, director of the Lon-
don Cancer Research Laboratories.
Lumsden, one of the best known
among conservative cancer scientists,
said the serum can not at present
he used on human beings. He re-
ported his discovery to the court of
governors of the London hospital.
The serum, Doctor Lumsden re-
ported, was obtained from the blood
of an animal after cancerous cells
from an animal of a different species
had been implanted.
(Human cancer cells live and grow
indefinitely in laboratory test tubes
•nd healthy tissues do the same.
These furnish the material for ex-
periments outside the body.)
As a further step in his investiga-
tion, the British scientist said it was
found that the serum will kill cancer
cells implanted from one animal to
another animal of the same species,
•ad so raises the resistance that once
animals are cured it is impossible to
infect them with cancer again.

LEAVES FINGER PRINTS
FORT WORTH, Dec. 3.—Finger-
prints on a half gallon fruit jar for
the second time since July have left
• tell-tale calling card of Raymond
Hamilton in Fort Worth.
The elusive outlaw, who escaped
from the death row at the Texas
penitentiary in July, abandoned a
late model coach on a side street in
Fort Worth last Friday.
The car was recovered by City
Detectives Reagan and Kennedy to-
day. Residents of the neighborhood
said the car had been there since
Friday morning. The fruit jar and
•ix containers for automatic rifle clips
were in the car.
License plates were issued in Smith
county, near where Hamilton and two
companions are believed to have shot
a watchman who attempted to ques-
tion them Sunday night.
WALKS 500 MILES
LEAVENWORTH, Kan., Dec. 5.—
Authorities at the federal peniten-
tiary here today were awaiting in-
structions from Washington concern-
ing Leonard Boggs, paroled counter-
feiter who walked 500 miles to give
himself up under the impression he
unwittingly had violated the terms
of his freedom.
Boggs appeared at the peniten-
tiary Sunday but officials there could
not admit him since they had not
been notified that he was a parole
violator. Boggs is staying at the
Salvation Army pending decision on
his case by the department of jus-
Received at the federal prison
from Tyler, Texas, Feb. 25, 1933, to
serve a three-year sentence for coun-
terfeiting, Boggs was paroled last
July 16. He joined his wife and
child in New Orleans, he told War-
den -Fred G. Zerbst, but found diffi-
culty in providing for his family.
Boggs recalled that a man in Tex-
as owed him some money, he said,
and hopeful of collecting something
on the debt to help care for his fam-
ily, he went to Texas to search for
the man. The search proved futile,
the warden was told, and Boggs sud-
denly realized he had failed to make
his regular report to the parole board.
Fearful he would be picked up by
Texas Rangers, he set out for Lea-

DEAL IS ARRANGED
Special Rate for Dec. on Daily Leader
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5.—Comple-
tion of a $30,000,000 cotton barter
deal with Germany apparently neared
today when American officials were
informed that the Hitler government
had approved the transaction.
Only clearance at the state and
jtreasury departments remained, in-
formed sources said, to consummate
the transaction expected to furnish
an outlet for 500,000 bales—and per-
haps 800,000—of the country’s prin-
Officials said the exchange had
been approved by the export-import
bank, directed by George N. Peek;
Oscar Johnston, manager of the AAA
cotton pool, and the agricultural ad-
In return for the cotton, this coun-
try is to accept German goods ap-
proximating the value of the staple.
Nitrates ,are one German product
mentioned, but it was explained
American importers are to select the
German products in the trade swap.
American packing concerns were
involved in the negotiations which
led the Germans to accept United
States proposals, but whether a large
quantity of pork products would be
included in the deal was not known.
Officials in touch with the parleys
said that 500,000 bales was the mini-
mum Germany agreed to accept and
that 800,000 may be exported.

DRASTIC CHANGES IN TAX
AUSTIN, Dec. 5.—Drastic changes
in the state’s tax system were rec-
ommended to the senate tax investi-
gation committee today. The com-
mittee was created by the last leg-
islature to study the system and pro-
pose remedial legislation.
George H. Sheppard, state comp-
troller, suggested an increase in the
tax on natural gas which now yields
about $115,000 annually. It was cal-
culated a tax of 1 per cent per 1,000
cubic feet' would yield $4,000,000 an-
A. W. Taber, formerly auditor and
statistician in the comptroller’s de-
partment, recommended a sales tax,
tightening of the intangible tax statu-
tes and an income tax. Other per-
sons appearing before this committee
included County Judge Oscar Dancey
of Brownsville and John T. Smith of
The committee discussed briefly the
wastage of gas in the Panhandle,
Representative-elect Alfred Petsch of
Fredericksburg, sitting in on the ses-
sion, terming it “a disgrace.” Shep-
pard said he believed an increase in
the tax on gas would reduce wast-
Sheppard proposed that the home-
stead tax exemption law be amended
more clearly to define a homegtead
so that confusion among taxing sub-
divisions would be eliminated. He
also suggested that collection fea-
tures of the tax on coin operated
machines be strengthened.
The committee indicated favor to-
ward an increase in the production
on oil and opposition to a proposed
increase in gasoline sales tax.
Under Taber’s recommendation, a
tax of 1 per cent would be levied
on gross turnover of business of any
corporation or individual selling mer-
chandise for consumption and a tax
of one-fourth of 1 per cent would
be levied on the gross turnover of all
merchandise sold by a manufacturer,
wholesaler, jobber or broker for the
purpose of resale.
54 CONVICTS RELEASED
AUSTIN, Nov. 29.—Texas prison
doors swung open Wednesday night
for 54 convicts whom Gov. Miriam
A. Ferguson granted either pardons
or paroles and wished them “a most
happy Thanksgiving Day at home
with their families.”
Convicts serving terms for viola-
tion of the state’s liquor law consti-
tuted the bulk of those receiving-
clemency, but the list included nine
convicted of murder, six of various
types of robbery offenses, two of
criminal assault and eight of burg-
Other than the 54, of which 25
received full pardons and 27 condi-
tional pardons, 11 had reason to be
thankful today. Three received com-
mutations of sentences to hasten
their day of freedom, six furloughs
or extensions and two restorations
Thanksgiving week pardons and
paroles were brought to 83, exclu-
sive of numerous furloughs.
Governor Ferguson called atten-
tion in a statement issued through
her secretary, to the fact many of
those receiving clemency were con-
victed of prohibition violations and
“The governor feels that the
Thanksgiving season is an especially
happy time to release and allow the
return to their families of these per-
sons who have had the unhappy ex-
perience of being convicted for the
first time for an offense that the
grand juries in a large majority of
counties of our state refuse even
“The governor hopes that each of
those released has a most happy
Thanksgiving Day at home with
WIDE RANGE OF PRICES
ON TURKEYS IN MAR-
KET FOR HOLIDAY
(From Produce Packer)
NEW YORK, Nov. 30—As had been
forecasted in The Packer in recent
weeks, the market this week on
Thanksgiving turkeys showed a fair-
ly wide spread in prices. Much dif-
ficulty was encountered by local dis-
tributors in getting stocks into the
hands of buyers, caused chiefly by
the low retail price of the larger
chains. This price sent independent
dealers scurrying (for lots of the
cheaper grade stock which would en-
able them to meet the low retail
price ,and although there was no
shortage of off-quality stock, buyers
were uncertain as to the best step
The off-grade stock met with a
good call but buyers asked for heavy
discounts which resulted in some-
what of a bidding contest between
buyer and seller, and final sales price
showed a wide variance. On Tues-
day plenty of the less desirable stock
was available and some difficulty
was encountered in even obtaining
bids. These offerings which came in
