Depression vs. Co-operation fty Cobb & Taylor The depression has cast its wicked shadow on our fair school this year only to be challenged by an opposing force which is going to be practically impossible to oppose. This force is "Co-Operation." Co-operalion in Hope High School this year never has been excelled. As evidence the Junior and Senior class have agreed to go fifty-fifty on their annual banquet which was skipped last year for the first tune in years. The Juniors have worked together with their director ana turned out a play which cannot be overlooked. The students are all working with the student council and although the purse of the" school board is empty they are still helping keep the pulse of the old institution normal and waiting expectantly for better days.

Washburn City of Blylhcvillo last night authorized the licensing 1 of places to sell the new .°,.2 per cent beer. The Blythe- viHe Council said nothing about how they proposed to get afduhd Arkansas' bone-dry law, merely giving it as their opinion that the new federal brew is "non-intoxicating." This brings up the interesting question as to what the state prohibition law actually says. The Volstead Inw passed by the fcd- —fi'ernl congress defined inloxicaling liquor as anything with 'A per cent alcoholic, content. In passing (he bscr bill the congress merely revised the definition, moving the percentage up to 3.2. But Arkansas state law mentions neither percentage figures nor the word "Intoxicating." It is n prohibition of tiny and all alcoholic content. The law says (Crawford & Moses Digest filGO): "It shall be unlawful .... to manufacture, sell or give away . . . any alcdholic, vinous, mult, spirituous or fermented liquors or compound or preparation thereof." Elsewhere there is mention of the word "intoxicating," but not in the general definition just quoted from the Digest. XXX This would appear to bo absolute prohibition. The Arkansas Supreme Futrell's Broom Completes Sweep of State Capitol Virtually All Departments Affected by House- Cleaning 4 TO BE RETAINED Game & Fish, and History ' Commissions Among Those Undisturbed LITTLE ROCK—</h—Tho Furtell broom has virtually iomplelcd its sweep of the tehousc. Few departments hove riot bqcn affected by the "house-cleaning" promised by Governor J. M. Futrcll in his prcmnry campaign and carried out by him with the aid of the 1S33 legislature 'and boards under his control. The election by'the utate bonrd of health this wpclt of a successor to Dr. C. W. Garrison as state health officer, effective on June 13 when his term expires, left few changes yet to be mndc. Dr. W.. B. Grayson of McGchce was named health'officer. New Adjutant General The next change expected to be •made by the governor is the appointment of a new adjutant general to succeed E. L. Compere of El Dorado. Col. .Elgan C. Robertson of Murianna Is being mentioned for tru- appointment. Four other department heads are ex- pqctcd to be retained. These are Guy Amslcr, secretary of the game and fish commission; D. T. Horndon, secretary of the history commission; George C. Branncr. stole geologist, and . pltrht board. ' ' ' 'In June, C. M. Hirst, state coinmis- tibher of education, goes out of office to be supplanted by a state superintendent of public instruction to bo appointed by the governor. The office of commissioner of education wns abolished by a 1933 legislative act. which, however, docs not become effective until June 8. The state superintendent will be ippointcd to serve until January, 11)35, Jvhcn a superintendent elected next year will take office. Tlic office thereafter will be elective. The Governor's At his inaugural, Governor Kutrell was presented a huge broom made- in his home city of Paragoukt and symbolic of his -promise In sweep the ttatehou.se clean of appointees of tlic former administration. In-carrying this out he has completely reorganized the stale highway department; appointed a new .state revenue commissioner, bank commissioner, Inbor commissioner, insurance CLinmissioncr. Shortly before he look cficc a now .slate comptroller, Grffin Smith, ono of the governor'!; campnign managers, was appointed by former GoVcrnor Parncll. In addition, Ihc legislnlure abolished the hlato tax and railroad commissions, creating in their place the .stiito corporation ecmmi.'i.sion. The- prison system WHS reorganized by legislative act and a nt;w urlmini.slration set up, as was the state hospital for nervous diseases.

Nor should it. Tlic federal congress passed the Volstead act. And then it threw the Vol- slcnd act oul and passed the beer bill. The Arkansas legislature passed the bone-dry law, and either the legislature or on initiated referendum will have to revoke it. That is democratic procedure. XXX Mr. Walter Jones, Hope man. takes us to task today in an Open Forum letter published on another page. Mr. Jones docsn'l like criticism of the League of Nations idea of an international police patrol to end war. Mr. Jones thinks the League patrol is practical. He thinks it would end war. The statement was in u news-story —not an editorial. But I can answer him this way: At one time President Wilson probably had a majority of the American people with him in his fight for the League. As u very young man 1 thought Mr. Wilson the most heroic, the most tragic figure, in modern his- .tory--H,,,T ( wRnyc,th Century Diogenes swinging his lantern 'Vainly in the search for an honest world. But having missed achievement in the first flush of enthusiasm, Die original League idea soon became utterly impossible. Tlic world lias aged since tha war. And today there arc KO many concrete problems harassing it that it can't afford to study abstract, problems like an international police patrol. XXX I can illustrate my point in today's news-. The Russian 'Soviet govcrnmcnl has been in power 1C yours, but the Unilcd Stales, still angry over investments I hut were .sci/cd when the CV.ar collapsed, refuses to recognize tlic new government. Senator Borah told the congress today that this is an absurd position. We aren't afraid of Russia; the Soviet is an established government; we owe it in the name of justice and good business to recognize it—so Borah said. Many of our poople arc slill speculating on abstract notions like the Leapue of Nations, or half-forgotten bonds that were lost under the Czar, and have continued to miss an export busini;.'s that once made us famous. We need to return lo realities-ami when we do. we will find plenty of problems to solve, without discussing the League of Nations. XXX I quotu Iho Russian case, because CJrcut Britain has just broken off trade relations with the Sovie!, in order lo throw her raw material purchase.-; to her own colonies, Canada AiiF.trulia, South Africa. The Russian market, therefore, it beckoning to American precincts. But because we have indulged in j political vanities, in.'lcad of being the realists that our forefathers were, we have continued to lose business that we should have gotten. If this be cynicism, then we will grow steadily more cynical until finally we have caught up with our European competitors in a trading ability for which we were onca the most famous nation on earth.

Fin-icy iilso disclosed that he hcped, by increased postal revenues and by economy, to balance the post- office budget which at the present artc is running into an annual deficit of $132,000,000. The. postmaster general said he had received opinions that if the postal rate is cut volume of business will be so restored as to yield gcratly increased revenues and lit said that sonic advisers felt that a flat two-cent letter postal rate over Ilie country would bring in enough n venue to balance the postal budget. A decision will be made within 48 hours. Mi. Farley indicated.

The bullet tore through Lewis' pelvis bone, piercing his intestines. John Robinson, bystander, who was struck by a stray bullet that pierced the abdomen and left leg, recovered.

America Roosevelt Makes Friendly Gesture on Pan-American Day WASHINGTON.— (K')— The existing warfare in South America was condemned Wednesday by President Roosevelt as a backward step, in a speech commemorating Pan-American day. The president took occasion to propose that all American governments initiate individual steps promptly "to abolish all unnecessary and artificial restrictions which now hamper the healthy flow of trade between the peoples of the American republics." He addressed a special session of the governing board of the Pan-American Union. General Censures War Department Asks Reorganization—"It Has Collapsed in Every Previous War" WASHINGTON.— (/P) —Major General Johnson Hagood told the house military committee Wednesday that the War Department is so top-heavy that "the shock of a war would destroy it," and then submitted a reorganization plan which he said was designed to have 50 million dollars annually. "The War Department has always collapsed at the outbreak of every war, and the present organization will collapse at the outbreak of tha next war because it is too top-heavy, contains too many conflicting agencies, and has too much divided responsibility," he said. "It has become so complicated that an archangel right out of heaven could not operate it," he declared. 2 Murder Cases Nolle Prossed in Hempstead Court Cbrnelius and Wyatt Indictments Dropped at Washington LANDES IS DROPPED $600 Robbery Case, With Four Arrests, Is Also Nolle Prossed Two. murder cases have been nolle prossed in Hempstead circuit court, one against Jess Cornelius and the other against Oscar Wyatt, both Hope men, it was learned Wedesday. Cornelius was held for the murder of .Earl Cornelius, who was fo'und shot to death in a garage of an ice plant here several months ago. The shooting followed what was sajd to v be a night-long search for Joss Cornelius' daughters, in which the father was joined by his brothers "Big Jack" and Henry Cornelius, and Henry's son, "Little Jack."' Slain In Garage They did not find Earl Cornelius at once, and there was no hint of trouble until Jess Cornelius saw a man standing behind a door in the ice plant garage. He is alleged to have fired at him with a shotgun, and Earl Cornelius fell mortally wounded yin the right lung. ' v He died two hours later on the operating table at Julia Chester hospital. Although of the same name, the Cornelius families are unrelated. The victim, Earl Cornelius, was the son of D. C. Cornelius. ...'•"• The murder case of Oscar Wyatt grew out of the fatal shooting of 'Ja'tties Moss, negro, who -was killed early, one Sunday morning, at ' the Southwest Arkansas Fair grounds. ' No evidence was presented regarding events at Wyatt's preliminary hearing, but according to the story told to officers by Wyatt, he had gone to the Fair grounds around midnight to disconnect the various gas linss which served concessions during the fair. He was accompanied by .Harvey Lester. Tells of Alleged Attack About 2 o'clock that Sunday morning the negro Moss appeared and struck Lester, knocking him bshind a building, Wyatt said. Wyatt was saic to have whipped out a pistol and shot Moss through the heart. Lester showed officers a pocketbook containing $200 which the men said caused the negro's attack upon them. The Landcs robbery case, in which four local young men were accused of hauling away a small safe in an automobile, carrying it to a point three miles north of Hope where it was cracked with a heavy hammer, has also been nolle prossed. , Six hundred dollars in currency and silver and $280 in checks were taken from the safe. Eighty dollars in gold, which was wrapped in a newspaper in another compartment, was overlooked. Gasoline or kerosene was then poured over the safe and set fire, burning all records with insurance and other valuable papers in an effort, it was believed by officers, to conceal evidence of the robbery. Charles Crosnoc, Jack Prilchett, Arlis Rhodes and Hoyt Rider, all of Hope, were arrested in connection with the robbery. What Legislature Did XXX By The Associated Press church fcr a piano fund.
