BEND CITIZENS APPRE-
CIATE BOND VOTE
The vote of last Saturday in favor
of the Bend bridge was very gratify-
ing to this part of the county. With-
out the open endorsement of a single
county official the measure carried to
protect our property and humanity in
general. It shows that when an ur-
gent case like this arises the people
can demand action. Bewhiskered ex-
cuses and school boy proposals intended
to sidetrack it have been swept aside
by the voice of the people and our
Macedonian cry has been answered.
To those few boxes that voted almost
solid against it, let me say that if
you ever have a bridge in the condi-
tion of the Bend bridge, I will give
you my time and stump the county
for you to have it remedied.
Yours for safety,
W. T. Moore.

If elected I can only promise to
put forth my best' efforts to obtain
those things that will be beneficial
to the people I represent, as well as
to the citizenship of Texas as a whole.
I stand for many reforms in our
criminal procedure, as well as some
amendments to our Civil Statutes, all
of which will, to my mind, be of in-
estimable benefit to our entire people.
Space forbids a discussion of these
changes, but in view of the fact that
I served the people of Lampasas coun-

I am sure that my views on most
questions are well known to the ma-
jority of the voters of the county.
I solicit your support on what I

which threatened industrial paralysis
to a city or nation, had lasted more
than a brief period. In every case,
the workers failed to get the demands
which precipitated the dispute.
Instances similar to the San Fran-
cisco strike, they said, are few.
The ^closest parallel occurred in
Seattle in 1919. This strike lasted
only five days but labor experts said
it lacked the preparation and the
solidarity of sentiment displayed thus
far in San Francisco. A Winnipeg
general walkout that same year was
also of short duration.
The general strike in Great Britain
in 1926 was preceded by a long series
of labor disturbances. Extremely ef-
fective for a while, it collapsed.
Officials said they recall but three
instances in this country, since the
union movement gained strength,
where federal troops were called out
because of strikes.
The best known, probably, was dur-
ing Cleveland’s administration. In
1894, he put soldiers on duty to en-
able the movement of mail trains and
this had much to do with the failure
of a railroad walkout which began as
a Pullman Company strike. Troops
were called out in the 1890’s because
of Colorado and Idaho mine disputes.

Baby Bobby Connor, found scratched
but smiling in nearby woods after he
had been missing for five days, lay
seriously ill of exposure and starva-

the belief he had been abducted ana
“I am forced to the conclusion that
it must have been a kidnaping,” said
Captain Philip J. McQuillan, head of
the Greenberg police.
“I feel that the baby was placed in
the woods (which had been searched
frequently) in the last 24 hours. I
don’t think he could have crawled

Dr. C. V/. M'unger, head of the in-
stitution, reported he was suffering
from exposure and lack of food and
water. It appeared, he said, the child
had received no water in four days.
“The baby is in a very precarious
condition but has a fair chance to re-
cover,” Dr. Munger added after com-
pleting his examination.
Because of Bobby’s weakened con-
dition—he had lost between 10 and
12 pounds, half his weight—he was
given 100 cubic centimeters of his
father’s blood early in the evening.
There was no evidence Bobby had
been mistreated, the examination
showed. He was still wearing the
pink rompers in which his mother
had dressed him . Thursday.
SAN ANTONIO, July 17.—Massed
parades with many women taking
part and a fiery attack upon policies
of the regional labor board- here,

Parading 1,500 strong, the strik-
ers marched from plant to plant Tues-
day morning leaving smaller groups
of peaceful pickets at each of the
major shelling places.
All shelling plants are completely
tied up with no work being done at
any of them, according to M. Rod-
riguez, general representative of the
The attack on the labor board was
set off when Rodriguez was asked:
“Have you given the regional labor
board a chance to settle this?”
“That is all we have given them,”
Rodriguez replied, “and they have
done nothing. We can’t wait on them
or the NRA any longer. They keep
promising us help, but they never do
anything. Now we have been forced
to take the matter in our own hands.
“Mr. Busfield (Roger Busfield, sec-
retary of the regional labor board for
Texas with headquarters in San An-
tonio) said there is no strike,” Rod-
riguez continued. “Well, he must be

CHICAGO, July 17.—With his thy-
roid gland removed, Folmer M. Peter-
sen will make a good husband, his
bride of six months believes.
For that reason she withdrew to-
day the divorce suit she filed against
him last March and they left Judge
Walter J. la Buy’s court together to
seek the domestic felicity long with-
held by his illness.
The Petersens were married here
January 27, and, after^ their separa-
tion Mai'ch 11, she filed through her
attorney, Irving Eiseman, a bill for
divorce, charging cruelty.
He beat her three days after their
wedding, she said; choked her, burn-
ed her hair and neck with a cigarette
he threw at her, threw cigarettes at
her in the bath tub and locked her
in a closet.
Five weeks ago Petersen, a bond
salesman, underwent an operation for
removal of his thyroid, which had
enlarged and become over active,
termed a toxic goiter.
Two weeks ago, his attorney, Rob-
ert E. Cantwell Jr., pleaded with
Judge la Buy for a delay of the trial
of suit, asserting that the operation
had changed his client so that he
thought Petersen could live happily
with his wife.
Today, after a two weeks’ test per-
iod ,the wife agreed with him. Peter-
sen had lost all the irritability, ner-
vousness, unstable temperament that
physicians said went with the toxic
goiter and had the possibility of be-
coming a companionable husband, she
said, and she was willing to return
