HOPE, ARKANSAS, ftt|TRSDAY, APRIL 20,1933 Here and There •Editorial By Atob.H. Washburn- Unequalled heroism read today's dispatch about Engineer Charles Leclbetter, of the Missouri Pacific. He stay- Id in a flaming locomotive-cab and stopped the "Texan" ex- Area's, saving its passengers. -<i >Two men on an engine. One jumps—(he other sticks until duty is done. • What Is bravery? Is it a conscious action, or merely instinct, stronger iri some men than others? The world doesn't really know. A groat writer pondered over the question and wrote a book. The writer was Joseph Conrad. His book is '"Lord Jim." It's the story of n man who failed In a .moment of great danger, who went about the world the rest of his life looking for his second chance—and found it. And this Is Conrad's point: The same man who quit a sinking ship on the instinct to save his life, years itate Committee Can't Name Party Choice for Court lust Call Primary or Convention Ahead of July 18th Election 3 CANDIDATES FILE Who Lost Retire- merit Pay, Opposes Johnson and Arnold LITTLE ROCK — (/P) — Stripped of its'power to name the party nominee for a vacant office in a special election through a change in rules adopted by the last state con- jij|gntion, the Democratic state central committee must qither call a special primary or a state convention to select the candidate for chief justice of the state supreme court in the election July 18. Governor Fulrcll has announced he will cull a special election for chief justice for the uncxpircd term of the late Judge Jess S. Hart, on the ?ame date as Arkonsans vote on the question of repeal of the Eighteenth (prohibition) amendment. The state central committee will meet in May to decide how the party nominee Is to be chosen. It has been tho custom for the committee itself to nominate the candidate 1 where special elections have been:', called .to fill vacancies. . New Committee Rule The; last slaVe convention, however, changed this, adopting a rule,that the cdmmHlec must call a 'special pri- mary.j'if there.Is sufficient time, .before ttjc-special election, and othcr- electing Tho Sonve'ntioh ' plan" party nominees has not been used by the democrats in Arkansas in many years. Few special primaries have been called in recent years. The s"tate committee has nominated candidates to fill vacancies in congress and also in the United States senate. Mrs. Hattie W. Caraway succeeded her husband in the senate through this method, as did the wives of two Arkansas congressmen, Otis Wingo . I W. A. Oldficld. '•the electron on July 18th will be a special general election, open to candidates of any party. The republicans have given no indication they will have a candidate, The Candidates C. E. Johnson of Texnrkana, formerly chancellor, is now serving as chief justice under an appointment by Governor Futrell. He will be a candidate for the remainder of Judge Hurt's unexpired term. Carroll D. Wood, -retired justice of the supreme court, also has announced he will be a candidate, as has W. H. Arnold, Sr., of Texarkona. Judge Wood, who served 30 years on tho supreme bench, entered tho race as a result of the failure of the 1933 legislature to make an appropriation to continue his retirement pay. Cowboy Revivalist to Open Thursday ev. B. B. Grimm at Baptist Church, in Tabernacle Later The Rev. B. B. Grimm, "Cowboy Evangelist," will begin u revival meeting at First Baptist church Thursday night. Assisting the Rev. Mr. Grimm will be Hurlan M. Powell, singer, and Alexander Bain pianist. Mr. Powell is known hero, having visited this city two years ago with the Wcinland parly. The first two services will be held in the First Baptist church Thursday and Friday in order that a tabernacle may be completed on the Parker lot at Elm and Sixth streets. For 18, years the Rev. Grimm has been preaching and is one of the South's best known evangelists. The campaign is not denominational, and is not sponsored by any local church. It is in the interest of all churches and the public. 4 Million Family Groups on 'Relief Steagall Tells House Number of Destitutes Is Increasing WASHINGTON — (#>) — Chairman Steagall; of the house banking com. mittee, filed a formal report on the Lewis-Wagner half-billion-dollar relief bill Thursday which asserted that 4 million families are on the relief lists tEroughout the country, and the number is increasing. where he knew death awaited him. Bravery is several things. XXX Newspapers and magazines arc full of articles about the House of Morgan this week. The Star is publishing Willis Thornton's series, written for NEA Service, Thomas W. Lament's biography of the late Harry iJavisoh, once a member of the firm, is running serially in Collier's magazine. But I think the best of tho lot is an article about the older J. P. Morgan, written by his chauffeur, in this week's Saturday, Evening Post. The chauffeur, Siegfried Blum, recalls how he once heard "J. P." shouting a hymn in an Episcopal church. You really ought to read it. Today's "Morgan" installment in The Star gives you something to think about. Much of the Missouri Pacific's 20-million-dollur loan from the R. F. C., it is believed, eventually found its way back to the House of Morgan, repaying some of their loans to the railroad. This makes all of us mad. It is, however, poetic justice. Whenever a nation's people start reaching into the public treasury, and all are agreed that reaching into the public treasury is the thing to do, then the, man gels most who has the longest reach—and a man like Morgan who has reached thp furthest in private business will do likewise witji the; public funds. ' . J'i ,• It '\B a grim warning.to get this, tountrx baok%.to,the respectability. $*., every man "standing on his own-feet as speedily as conditions permit! • . '-'V' XXX '•- v. There is a curious thing about the coming race for supreme court justice which I don't understand. One of tho three candidates is former Justice Carroll D. Wood. He is running against C. E. Johnson, present chief justice by appointment; and W. H. Arnold, Sr. Mr. Wood is a candidate because, retiring after 30 years service on the bench, he was denied his retirement pay by the last session of the legislature. I have never been able to understand that. Neither personality nor politics nor law can have very much to do with the question of pensioning a man who for 30 years has sat on the state supreme bench. The very cornerstone of American justice requires that men who give their lives to the judiciary shall bo token care of by tho state when their active service is over. I wish some one would explain this legislative failure in the case of Judge Wood. Lindbergh and Wife Flying Across U. S. A. BALTIMORE, Md. — (/I 5 ) — Colonel and Mrs. Charles A.

A relief train was sent to Moark to bring in Engineer Ledbetter, the dead 'ircman, and the stalled train. Flumes Reach Coaches The flames spread to five of the passenger cars of the Texan, and hysterical passengers jumped from the window, escaping uninjured. The Texan was bound for St. Louis.

Italy Would Pay Debts With Goods Mussolini Works for Better Political Feeling Throughout Europe ROME, Italy.—(/P)—Ar» agreement in Italian and German viewpoints that improvement in the world political atmosphere is a necessary forerunner for economic betterment, was disclosed in speeches Wednesday by Premier Mussolini and Herman Goering, German cabinet minister without portfolio. Appearing at a meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Commercial Conference on th'e eve of the Washington economic conversations, both statesmen stressed this point. The Italian premier left no doubt but that war debts were uppermost in his mind in connection with the economic discussions. He declared the conviction was growing everywhere that war debts installments should be payable primarily in exchange of goods and services. Italy is opposed to quotas on imports and restrictions on foreign exchange which "raise a heap of obstacles to commercial movement, contracting its volume notably and creating a harmful disequilibrium between internal and external prices," he said. "A good sign is the recognition that is being reinforce'd everywhere that it is not possible to pay international debts merely with transfers of money, but that the debts themselves must be paid above all with exchanges of goods or servcies."

"It' seems to me clear that the way 'ctit of the depression is to combat and overcome the deflationary forces. Therefore, I regard the'action now taken as being the best possible course under existing circumstances." It was the first public statement issued by the traditionally reticent head of the House of Morgan since his statement in London in September, 1931, when he described the British suspension of gold payments at that time as constructive, under the circumstances. The statement produced a profound impression in. banking quarters generally. Japanese Aim to Seize North China Their Planes Drop Leaflets Appealing for "Reestablished Order" TIENTSIN, China — (JP) — Tientsin was decidedly uneasy Wednesday night as the result of the newest Jap- ancse.Manchukuoan activities in the Lwan river sector south of the Great Wall and reports of numerous casualties among Chinese civilians. A widespread belief that Japanese and their Manchukuoan allies in. :nd I to continue their advance toward the Tientsin-Peiping area resulted from the dropping of leaflets by Japanese airmen in •& wide area south of the Great Wall advocating a change in North China. Manchukuoan troops, as they advanced in the new battle zone northwest of here, also were said to be circulating leaflets which read: "We are the anti-Chiang Kai-Shek army, come to re-establish order in North China." (Marshal Chiang Kai-Shek is tho military dictator of the Chinese national government). ulator, less rough-house but more adroit than his railroad prcdecssor, operated along this line: He bought up a string of small steel mills, paying often excessive prices; he combined these under a magnetic title, and sold stock to the public, thoroughly watering it first. The public loved it. "Bet a Million" Gates "Bet-a-Million" John,W. Gates was typical of these gentry, rigging together his American Steel and Wire Co. His plunger.proclivities were steadied, however, by his general counsel, the pious, rigid Elbert H. Gary. When J. P. Morgan plunged into the steel game by setting up the Federal Steel Co., he met Gary and hired him to preside over Federal. Andrew Carnegie, the former Pittsburgh bobbin boy, watched closely. His steel interests were wide and varied. He knew Morgan would want them some day, and Carnegie was getting old. Rockefeller nibbled at tl.e Carnegie properties, but would not meet the price. Carnegie waited for Morgan. Knowing Morgan's intense personal dislike for him, Carnegie sent the magnetic Charles Schwab, his personal protege, to feel out Morgan and Gary. Then he announced that it was "buy or fight" and began a series of projects to compete with Morgan and Gates which might well have ruined both. Pays Carengie V4 Million Morgan bought. He paid the equivalent of $447,000,000 in cash and securities in the new corporation. It was more than twice what Rockefeller had refused to pay.

In 1903 the fall of Steel stock to 8 and an order by the supreme court in 1904 dissolving Morgan's Northern Securities Co., one of the first holding companies, shook the throne tempor- aritly.

The inflation plarW-to give President Roosevelt wide discretion in that policy—is expected to be offered by Senator Thomas', of Oklahoma, late Thursday as an amendment to the farm bill now in the senate. The farm bill, meanwhile, advanced through a njaze of amendments •and much argument. In view of the impending inflation plan, the senate is not certain of getting done with the farm bill Thursday as hoped. The house, after a two-day recess, took up the Doughton bill to continue the one-cent federal gasoline tax and reduce postage rates on local letters to 2 cents. Some members, enthusiastic over the prospect of inflation, said they believed neither the farm bill nor other sweeping relief measures proposed by the administration will be needed now. roughly a third of their fains'i profiUak'i'ng.
