Washburn question. is Chapman ?" asks the headline in today's paper And citizens, voters and taxpayers, indignant over the of a two-gun northern county sheriff, ask the Sheriff Wilson went to Little Rock a Thursday to get Chnpman—but Sherifl J Maxcy wns ahead oi him, and hnd J the bank robber removed to some secret hiding place. Judge Bush told The Stnr Friday he is Koinjfto have Chapman brought buck. .The way to bring Chapman buck is for Judge Bush to loll Sheriff Wilson to go io Van Buren and cither gel- the bunk robber.or Sheriff Maxcy —one or the other. If this story keeps up in the newspapers much longer the common citizen won't know which is the slibriff and which is the bank robber. XXX I'm in sympathy with Sheriff Maxey to this extent—it always has. been an American custom that nn officer bringing down a desperado in, a gun battle is entitled Io a reward. Sheriff Mnxey hasn't gotten a reward EO far. But I imagine that's because Ihe Arkansas Bankers association is broke, like most trade'associa- tions in these days of non-dues-paying members.

J i Asked of Hope to Aid Tourist Trail Broadway of America ' Club Will Canvass City Next Week FIGHT FOR TRAFFIC Arkansas Wants to Recoup Business Lost Dur; ing Construction A Broadway of America club was organized in Hope .Thursday afternoon to can- jjytss'lhe city for ati.advcrlis- g^fund with which to help all the towns along this famous transcontinental road attract tourist traffic. At a meeting 'called in the New Capitol hotel by Tnrrcll Cornelius, a local vice-president of the Broadway association, nine Hope men heard the association's plans outlined by Scotl Hamilton, secretary-manager of the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce: |{ R. A, Joncr, Hot SpriiiRK, a regional vice-president of the- Broadway asso. ' elation; and Chick McDaniel. of Ar- kudclphii), u national director. To. Recover Traffic Tourist traffic at one lime wns a majbr industry cf Arkansas, thousands of cars coming'down the old Bankhcad highway when il wns a fine gravel road; bui Ihe traffic, declined during the construction period. ' has never fully come back, the visitors pointed out. They said lhat (he combined oh•_ .j,,,,.staclcs ,of four years of construction >, * $"or|t an.dthc national panic,;present a problem which only nation-wideband persistent advertising can overcome. Hope will be asked to contribute about ?100 a year. The money is to be raised by selling club member, ships at $1 a head—uhd a committee headed by Mr. Cornelius will begin the membership canvass either Monday or Tuesday. Only 300 Miles Unimvcd Mr. Jones told the Mono men that ^ftly 300 miles in the nearly 4.000 ipPfles of the Broadway route remains Puhpaved—the shortest unpavcd section in any transcontinental American highway. Mr. Hamilton appealed to the local . club to send a delegation to the Broadway of America convention at El Paso, Texas, May 2-1!, which date coincides wilh Ihe Mexican International Fair, just across Ihe border in Juarez. Third.Attempt to. Blast River Levee Mississippi Guards Exchange Shots With Boatload of Men CHARLESTON, Miss,- I/] 1 ) — What was described as the third attempt in Io dynamite '(he Mississippi levees was frustrated curly Fri- ay by guards who .said they cxchang- ' 'ed shots with four men near here. The guards, putrolliiiK the Walter James levee on 1'uttisun bayou, opened fire on u boat when it tied up tu tht embankment. The shots were returned, and the boat disappeared in the darkness. Three hundred convicts were ord- .ercd into the Qulzoni flood zone Fri.'day to assist in plugging up sand 'hoils ill the levee there and below the jcity. law. His duly is to catch bank robber;, and turn them over for trial. I'm for Maxcy, and think he ought Io gel » reward—but in these panic limes he oughl to do his duly first, and I rust to the reward Inter. This comic serial slory,nbout "Now- you-sce-lhe-prisoner—no,W-you-clon't," is only helping to.bring-all pracc officers, into public contempt.

Mr. Ware told of sharp practices by t.ome promoters of cotton seed, who 'seek out cxpcrimenlul dala on their variety in a year when it did particularly well. Suclj data is valueless, Mr, Ware said, pointing out that experiments arc run five years or more, and only the cumulative results tell the whole story, averaging up such factors as weather and other seasonal developments.

Local Option Days Brought to Mind by Return of Beer How John Hamilton Destroyed 13 Cases of Whis ky After 1902 Raid WHOLE CnYTHERE Being Dry Then Was as Much a Novelty as Legal Beer Is Now The return of legal beer to 9.states.Friday means noth- ng in Arkansas, but will recall some vivid days under lo~al option. Although voted dry »s a sltile the legislature io 1016, Arkansas never held a prohibition referendum; and K. S. Greening. Hope citizen, recalls that the prohibition victory in the legislature occurred just after a prohibition defeat in the local option elections in the various coutnies. Tho first actual popular vote on prohibition ever held in this state will be next July 18—and (hen it will be the purely academic issue as to whether prohibition is to remain in the fed.- cral constitution. The July 18lh election will have no practical local effect, all intoxicating liquors being forbidden by state law. '! But back in ,lhe old clays—long be. fore the prohibition workers had learned how to .make state and national campaigns—the counties had their local option battle cvpry two ycarr, rivaling d presidential cami paign for interest. , And when a county went dry the town marshal got out his axe and broke cpen illicit liquor that some of the citizens, alas, had hidden away hoping for a different turn of events in the next election , Street Seem- in 1902 . , 4v , In the picture in the adjoining column wo see how this looked on one of the downtown street corners of Hope in 1902. Hcmpstead county had pone dry for the first time in 18!)6. Liquor stayed out two years, returning in 1898. The county went dry again in 1900, and except for a two-year y intervai has remained dry ever since. The man on the wagon, with an axe in his hand breaking open a case of Bonnie Rye whisky in'1902 is John Hamilton, the town marshal. Fther ol Claude Hamilton, now with the Lion Oil company in Hope, Marshal Hamilton had uncovered 13 cases of whisky in a-negro's barn near the cemetery on the north side of town. He brought the liquor downtown, to the corner where Jack's News-stand is located, opposite the Missouri Pacific station; and there he destroyed it. Marshal Hamilton soon afterward was slain in one of the great murder mysteries of this county. He was killed by a negro employe of the Missouri Pacific—and feeling was high, some people saying that the negro had been hired by the illicit liquor men to murder the raiding marshal. The mystery is deepened by the fact that the negro was never permitted to come to trial. Trial was repeatedly postponed, and finally the negro was taken ill in the penitentiary at Little Rock, and died there. The Late Bob Berry i On the wagon with Marshal Hamilton is the late Bob Berry, who up to his death last year operated the trash-collecting system for the City of Hope. Scattered in the crowd are many well known men, some still living. There is the late Young Foster.'son of W. Y. Foster. Albert Aimes is another. He lives CHAPMA (S Beer May Be Back, But Hope Was Dry in northeast of Hope loday. Over at Ihe extreme left of the picture is u man with a derby hat. lie was Jack Karris, shot and killed in a quarrel many years ago in Ihe Little Hivcr botlorns. Another in Ihe picture is John B. Parker, former sheriff of Nevada county, .still living. Walter Wright, now in the local freight office of the Missouri Pacific, is the man in the foreground wearing a cap, and looking over his shoulder at the camera. A Mr. Phillips, a local painter who if "still living, also appears in the picture. 'Ihe open window which appears on the second story of the corner building, marks the office of the late Dr. H. M.

' The breweries of Washington, Bal. timorc and Milwaukee sent cases of the new brew to the White House. Tennessee Heads for Beer NASHVILLE, Tenn.— (ff>)—The low- •cr house of the Tennessee legislature 'Friday passed u bill to legalize beer 'June 1 by a vote of 53 to 41, The senate will probably act next week.

The attempted rape took place in Moody's barn, two miles north of Emmet. The girl had gone to the barn to milk some cows. It was said that Moody followed her. Within a few minutes the girl's screams attracted her mother. Moody fled from the scene. • Hope officers were notified and a search started. Deputy Sheriff Clarence Baker and Constable Will Porter searched the Emmet community, but no trace of Moody has been lound. It was believed by officers Friday .thtat Moody might have escaped to East Texas. It was reported thai he 'has relatives there. —Photo courtesy of Steve Carrigan. .This picture, made in Hope in 1902, shows the late town Marshal John Hamilton breaking up 13 cases of Bonnie Rye whisky seized in a raid after Hempstead county had been voted dry the second time under local option.

What Legislature Did XXX By The Associated Press (Continued on page ihree) Editor's Note: — This is u series of articles explaining acts of the 1933 general assem-ply. Act No. 280 The penally for failure to pay all state, county, city or improvement district taxes was reduced from 10 to 3 per cent, and the time for redemption of property sold for taxes extended to four years, through Act 190 of 1933. The Act Is retroactive to all prop-- 1 crly which has been forfeited for nonpayment of taxes. Acl 280 did not carry Ihe emergency clause, Ihus making it operative on June 8, four days before the date fixed by law for county clerks to certify delinquent property. Thus the practical cffecl will be to allow 1933 property taxes Io be for- fciled by property owners who desire to do so, wilh a three per cent per annum penalty added. All such delinquent taxpayers have four years, or unlil June 8, 1937, Io redeem their property, !he total penally to b2 12 per cent. Tha act prcscribss lhat in all iu- slances iii which the law now provides lhat intei-ost shall be added to the amount of taxes, both improvement district and general taxes, by reason of not paying Ihe sains within the lime prescribed by law, the rate of interest was fixed at 6 per cent. The retroactive clause recites: "All real cstale which has already been forfeited for failure Io pay ils laxes or which has been sold for its taxes, either general or improvement district taxes and the time for the redemption of which has not expired at the time of passtage of this act, is hereby declared to come within the purview of this act and can be redeemed at cny time within four years from Ihe date of its sale and in computing Ihe amount necessary . only three per cent shall be added in those cases where Ihe penalty has attached and six per cent interest per annum in all cases where the law now provides that interest shall be' WASHINGTON-^)—The chiefs of the French, Italian and German governments, as well as the British, have been Invited to come here this spring to talk over world economic recovery with President Roosevelt. Invitations were extended Italy and Germany Friday. At the same time France joined England in an acceptance of the invitation. Mof fett Believed Akron Was Safe Seaman Deal Tells of Talk With Admiral 4 Hours Before Crash WASHINGTON — (/P) — Four hours before he went to his death in Ihe Atlanlic ocean on the Akron, Rear Admiral William A. Moffett said the airship was much ' betler than the Shenandoah, the other air giant of| the Navy that went down to disaster in Ohio. , Richard K. Deal, one of the three survivors of the Akron crash, told the house naval committee Friday of a conversation with the Navy's chief pf aeronautics shortly before the ship's falal plunge. At about Ihe same lime. Representative McClintlc, of Oklahoma, former member of the naval committee, was asking the house rules committee to have some other committee investigate the tragedy. He charged that if any committee interested in naval legislation made the inquiry, the matter would be whitewashed. Chairman Vinson, of the naval committee, denied this in a personal clash with McClintic before the rules com. mittec. Hitlerites Offer Changes During the past fiscal year, medical examiners of Aeronautics Branch of the U. S. Department of Commerce conducted physical examinations of 164,967 applciants for student pilot permits. Propose to Bar Roman Law, and Old Testament, From Germany BERLIN, Germany.—(/P)—One more step jin the remodeling of German life is contemplated by the National Socialists in a proposal to reform the system of jurisprudence, The Hitler party proposes to relegate Roman law to the background and reorganize the administration of justice "in the true German spirit." The religion oif Germany under Hitler rule, as defined by the Protestant Nazi "German Christian movement," would oust the Old Testament and would erect in its steead the sagas and fairy lales of Germany and the leading personalities from German spiritual, philosophical and artistic life, At their first national convention the members of this movement named a commission to amend German church life in conformity with Nazi ideas and "in a pure Aryan spirit." The Supreme Council of the 1 Evangelical Church, disturbed by Nazi at- lempls to reorganize th,e Lutheran communion to co-ordinate it with Naz- sm, reminded Chancelor Adolf Hitler le had promised not to touch the nation's independent ecclesiastical institutions. ' Tha policy the Nazis will adopt toward the Catholics remained uncertain. Vice Chancellor Franz von Papen will discuss the situation with the pope when ho visits Vatican City within the next few days. The "German Christians" adopted resolutions asking "equal fusion of the church with the Nazi movement in a pure Aryan spirit, equalization of organist and pastor, the living language to the exclusion of the ancient, dismissal of the Old Testament basis and substitution of the German inheritance, instead of prophets sagas and fairy tales to take the leading personalities from German spiritual, philosophical and artistic life." to Get Him;! and Robber Crawford CoTsherii its Him Away Wil»on Sheriff Finds ty's Prisoner < returned to afternoon Circuit Judge Chapawm U V» Just as The* Star press at 3:15 , Associated Press telephoned':; Sheriff A.
