Lawrence, Little Rock, today urged Arkansas Baptists to put forth every effort in coopera* tion with other stales in the Southern Baptist convention to free the denomination from indebtedness j by Jan, 1, 1944. I Addressing the Second day's session of Arkansas Baptist conven-. tion, the Rev. Mr. Lawrence said that all but $100,000 of a $0,500,000 debt on Southern Baptist institutions had been retired. He attributed much of the progress to work ot the "100,000 club" organized by ministers ten years ago. The speaker also recommended that the churches begin now to ac- cnmlate funds to send missionaries to foreign countries afler the war. Reporting on state mission, the Rev. E. B. Abing'.on, West Memphis, said plans are now underway to give financial aid to churches situated near defense plants and to establish mission stations. The mis sion board has applied for priori ties to build a church at Plainview gate of the Pine Bluff arsenal, and will cooperate, wilh the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board in stationing a missionary near the Japanese relocation centers in Southeast Arkansas, he announced.

Farmers Discuss Labor Organization Memphis, Nov. 17 (/P)— An official of the Agricultural Council of Arkansas says attempts to organize farm labor in agricultural sections is complicating efforts toward increased production of food and fiber. Other factors which Harry Adams, Wesl Memphis, Ark., Council secretary-manager, said were affecting production were Ihe de parture of farm labor for more lucrative industrial jobs and delays in deliveries of farm machinery. "Farm labor is on the march and v'here is little we can do about it." Adams said in a talk before a special meeting of the organizatioi here yesterday. "Farmers are not against pay ing the labor more, but they ar< against the increased pay out o their own pockets. U seems to us that the roll-back should be on industrial wages instead of on farm products."

But the demand for turkeys has been heavier this year, tradesmen said.

JONES Nassau, Bahamas, Nov. 17 (/P)— Alfred De Marigny appeared in court again today — this time to plead innocent to the illegal possession of gasoline which figured in his recent trial for the murder of Sir Harry Oakes. Ho was charged in magistrate's court, wilh being in possession of gasoline believed stolen and with obtaining gasoline from other than official sources. De Marigny's close friend, Marquis Georges de Visdelou, pleaded guilty to the same charges, but Brice Finder and Dan Knowles joined de Marigny in a profession of innocence. Banker John H. Anderson pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of violating gasoline rationing laws jy assisting in disposal of the gaso- .ino, and was fine $210. The hearing was recessed until tomorrow. Meanwhile, de Visdelou was released under bond of $420. V/i(nesses who testified at the murder trial which brought de Marigny's acquittal said several drums of gasoline were taken to de Marigny's Victoria avenue cottage July 8 — the clay the blurgeoned and burned body of his father-in- law, Sir Harry, was found. Anderson said he reported the matter to police because lie feared there might be some connection between the gasoline and the slaying and he did not want to become implicated in the latter. Meanwhile, dc Marigny explained his schedule re-marriage in a Catholic church was called off Monday because his wife Nancy has not attained the legal age of 21 where she may be wed without her parents' consent.

Emily, going in, to see her father, found him Kitting up with his tray across his knees. "Ellen tells me Jim was out from about one o'clock till a little while ago," he said, "on the Sonderson case. Seen the lad yet?" "No, he hasn't come over. 11 "Let him sleep," said ner father. He looked at licr sharply, under shaggy eyebrows. "You look like the devil,'' he said, "washed out. What's the matter?" "I didn't sleep well," she replied truthfully. "That makes two of you. Going to the Club tonight, aren't you?" "Yes ... at least I was," she said hesitantly. "You go. Change will do you good. One way lo get over being tired from work is to lire yourself out playing." "You're a fuie one to prescribe that." "Never mind, I Know. When you get home today lake yourself a long hoi bath, and a nap. Lock your door. Don't lei Nancy 01 your mother bolhcr you Keep yourselt to yourself. And go to your party and dance your feet oil.

She said, "All righW Nancy came in and down m Ihe slipper chair besidt the Dig bed, "I'm not going to the Club," she announced. Emily turned over on her side. She said quietly: "It you're not going because Frank and I — " "Don't be absurd," said Nancy. "We had a quarrel last night. I'm not stirring out. Dad's getting up today. ... I thought he and mother, Jim and I could play contract," Emily said after a long minute. "That will be very nice." "In the old home tradition," said Nancy lightly. "You were rather silly, weren't you," asked Emily, ''to spend most of last evening over in the apartment?" "Darling," said Nancy ; caressingly, "I love you, you're my only sisler, and 1 think you're quite beautiful but must you moralize;as well as minister? There wasn't anything very reprehensible in. it, was there?" "No," said Emily, "there wasn't. I wasn't thinking of you." "That's interesting," said Nancy alertly. "Ot whom then? The neighbors?" "I was thinking of Jim. He's a pretty fine person. He's very much attracted by you. If — if you're not, Nancy, it would be decent to lei him alone." "How do you know I'm not? 1 '" Nancy asked. She rose and went to the door. "Thanks," she said lightly, "for an instructive five minutes." * * * pLOSING the door she stood ^ there a moment, frowning. that wab it. Perhaps Emily had been in love with Jim before he came to Cranberrv. But if Nancy wero nny .nidge, Jim's interest 'u Emily was purely friendly. He'd caught Nancy, at the ga- ;-age door, as she was leaving, for Ihc house and kissed her. Kissed her hard and thoroughly, said, You'd belter not do this again, Nancy," before he let her go. She had let him kiss her. She had let other men kiss her this summer, just to see if— But it was no use. They kissed her, they said the Sfc'.vigs they were expected to say and her heart cried Drew—and lier lids closed and she imagined. . But it wasn't Drew Warner, it was Dan Graham or Bill Spencer, or Jim Thompson. Never Drew. Never Frank Edgar, as a matter of fact, What if she had gone out after him, hammer and longs well concealed? What else was there for her to do? It was expected of her, wasn't it, at least by her mother? And Elsie Edgar wouldn't mind, she'd like it in fact. As a youngster Nanc> had been her pet, not Emily. Nancy and Frank had quarreled about Emily, last night at the beach party. She'd teased him a little, not thinking, and he'd been short wilh her. What was it he'd said finally, there on the sand with the moonlight cold and remote on the wator, the beach fire high, making dark shadows on the wet hard sand. "Leave her out of this, she's worth two ot you and you know it. It f thought foi a moment that she'd look at me—-" I love Emily, Nancy thought, astonished, moving away from the door, and I h.-ile her. At the moment I hate her more than I love her. Silly mixup, Last night she had realized that Frank wa.s in love with Emily—who wouldn't care, who'd turn him and the mills down, gently—but mean it. And this afternoon she became aware that Emily was in love with Jim. But Jim, at the drop of a hat, or a hairpin, would be in love with me, Nancy thought.
