State Executie Defends His Policies
In Sneech Before Oklahoma
Bankers Convention
(By Associated Press)
OKLAHOMA CITY., Dec. 13-While
the militia continued to guard the leg-
islative chambers of the state capi-
tal, members of the Oklahoma senate
tonight were gathering for the avow-
ed purpose of considering impeach-
ment charges against Gov. Henry S.
Johnston and two other state officials.
Mac Q. Williamson, named presi-
dent pro tempore when the senate
last week resolved itself into a court
of "impeachment, notified all members
that the senate would meet but the
time and place were not designated.
Senator Williamson announced that
22 senators, one more than a quorum,
already were in the city.
Assembling before dawn at a down-
town hotel, the house summarily vot-
ed six charges against the chief exe-
cutive, bne of which was based on
the mobilization of military power to
replace civil authority and prevent
his impeachment. Bills of impeach-
ment also were voted against Chief
Justice Fred Branson, of the state
supreme court and Harry B. Cordell,
president of the state board of agri-
Gatler Informally
The impeachment session was call-
ed to order at 3:50 p. m. Many of the
legislators we're attired in pajamas
and bathrobes and with only a few
chairs in the makeshift chamber,
some sat or lay on the floor while
the business of the session was con-
Leaders emerging from the secret
meeting said the allegations were in
the hands of the board of -managers
to be presented to the senate.
Charges voted against the governor
included incompetency; illegal em-
ployment of an, attdrney for the state
banking department; commissioning
of a man accused of bank robbery as
a peace officer; illegal payment of
$7,900 to employees of the banking
department, and an alleged conspira-
cy with Mrs. 0. 0. Hammonds, the
executive's confidential secretary, and
another woman to aid a contractor in
collecting a claim from the state.
Illegal expenditures of state funds
and padding of payrolls were charged
to Cordell and allegations of "corrup-
tion in office" were made against Jus-
tice Branson.
Johnson Defends Self
Governor Johnston defended him-
self in an address before the annual
convention of the state bankers as-
sociation and won applause when he
declared: "There Will be no tlal gov-
ernment in Oklahoma,
He stressed the fact that he had
not proclaimed martial law, but said
that troops had been stationed at the
capital until "things got back to the
law and order side.",
Referring to the impeachment
charges voted against him by the
house in secret session, he said:
"You do not take a case before even
a justice of the peace until the man
is present and represented by his at-
torney. That is the American prin-
ciple. They just don't try men by a
jury which is pledged to get the de-

The bankers were told that officers
of their association had requested the
employment of Jose Alvarado as a
special state officer to capture bank
robbers. The commissioning of Al-
varado, alleged to be wanted himself
in Texas for bank robbery, formed
the basis for two of the impeachment
counts against the executive.

Speech Correction Authority Wants
Every City To Have Means For
Vocal Treatment
"Strong, centralized speech clinics
should be established in every com-
munity of sufficient size to suppor'a
one," advocated Dr. Lee Edward Tra-
vis, speaking in the Natural Science
l auditorium ysterday afternoon on thei
"Place of Speech Correction in Mod-
ern Education." "Such clinics should
be directed by men who have a broad
background of the biological sciences.
including psychology and neurology,"
he said.
There are two types of vocal de-
fects which are generally placed in
two classes: voice defects, and speech
defects. A voice defect is the result
of some disability of the mechanism
of vocal expression, while a speech
defect is an inadequate adjustment
of an individual in relation to his
social environment, Dr. Travis be-
Number Large!
One of the facts in connection with
speech defectives is that the number
of persons who fall in that class rut-
ziumber the combined fig'ure for all
the other disability groups. These
other classes are the deaf, blind, crip-
pled and feeble-minded persons.
Dr. Travis state d that from 3 or 4
to 12 per cent of all school children
have speech defects, which range
from lisping andsbaby talk to the
pathological states of stuttering and
stammering. He cautioned against
assuming that careless or slipshod
speech was the result of speech de-
fects,has in, a true case of speech de-
fectiveness the individual is unable
to speak correctly, try as bt. will.
Related To Personait y
The relation of speech to person-
ality is one of the most interesting
fields, according to the lecturer, as
there develop such stages as com-
pensatory behavior, for early speech
defects, then come paranoid reactions,
and finally perhaps, a psychopathic
personality is fully developed. Dr.
Travis does not believe that there is
any causal or sequential relation be-
tween speech defects and intelligence,
although experiments would tend to
show a lower intelligence quotent for
speech defedtives than for normal

Decision To Takeoff Startles CapitalI
By Its Suddenness As Weather
Conditions Improve1
(By Associated Press)f
BALDWIN, Miss., Dec. 73,.-The
sound of an airplane motor flying
low over this place was heard by
several individuals about 8:55 this
evening. Baldwin is about 160 miles
southwest of Chattanooga, near
where Colonel Lindbergh was re-
ported two hours earlier.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. - Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh soared into the
air on his second international flight
today, heading from Bolling Feld to-
ward Mexico City at the invitation of
President Calles.
Disaster threatened the young trans-'
atlantic flyer at the start, but the
Spirit of St. Louis responded to his
touch and succeeded in a third de-
termined attempt to take off. The
rain-soaked earth twice defied Lind-
bergh's efforts to lift the plane off
the ground as it roared across the
field. Finally it slowly ascended,"
skimmed over trees bordering the avia-
tion grounds, and winged southward
into the grey mists which blanketed
the Potomac.
Start At High Speed.
As though exuberant with victory,
Lindbergh and his silver partner
started the 2,000-mile journey at such
speed that some planes of a convoy
which set out to cover the first stage
of the flight could not keep pace. It
was estimated here that Lindbergh
I was traveling at 110 miles an hour,
but first reports of his progress esti-
mated his speed at 80 miles an hour
over Lynchburg, Virginia.
Lindbergh's decision to take off to-
day on a non-stop flight from'capital
to capital startled Washington with
its suddenness, as there had been indi-
cations that weather conditions might
hold him up for a week br 10 days.
Reports Reveal Ill Weather.
Weather bureau hydrographic re-
ports agreed that better atmospheric
conditions were not in the offing, so
he ignored a threatened rainstorm and
started on his long journey, satisfied
that wind conditions, at least, were
Warned that flying weather tomor-
row might be worse than today, Lind-
bergh said before leaving that he in-
tended to make a bee-line for Galves-
ton, Texas, thence follow the Gulf
coast until daybreak before turning
inland after establishing his location.
His path across the mountains to
Mexico City, he said, was to be guided
entirely by flying conditions. He lex-
pects to arrive at the Mexican capital
around mid-day tomorrow.
