For many years the Associated Press has had an ar- tgement for an exchange of news with the Havas Agency, JPr»nee,- and only recently, it is said, the Associated Press given its cpsnent for the Havas Agency to serve direct American newspaper which may desire its service. U> ,To those who understand ; that the Associated Press is a ;Utual organization, owned and controlled by its member jwspapers, the inference that it would become a party to $ transmission of propaganda from France or any other tuntry is absurd, and needs no denial. ',;' gut the discussion has disclosed one fact which is worthy ' i^riops consideration by the newspaper publishers of the t«J States. Jt appears that the Havas Agency, through u»e of the radio, has made its service available to newspa- gt a price far below that maintained by the Associated ;, and-; for this reason, has built up a large clientile in ji and Central America. Officials of the Associated Press have contended that the a is unauited for the transmission of news, hence no ef- hftve been, made in this country to use this economical } of serving the smaller newspapers, through a short- radio allocation has been at the disposal of the "AP" for of years. we believe, is unfortunate. Many of the smaller !pfW0pl*pers of the United States would be glad to receive a ' -'(pomprehpsiv news service, if it could be secured at a which they are able to pay. And the newspapers of and Central America would doubtless prefer to get fl(j news through the United States, if the news ser- this country could supply it at a figure comparable ,,-«,t of the French-owned Havas Agency.

Poor Bill—it was having to work too bard and too early that had weighed him down so that, at 22, be seemed years older. And their mother—Monnie had twinges of worry about her, too. She seemed cheerful as always but her step was slower. She sighed deeply and quietly when she thought no one was about.

He might be able to solve the mystery. "Hellol May I speak to Bill, please?" Mr. Harnett's voice, rumbling, Intimidating,, answered. "Bill? Bill's not here." Her heart began to race faster. "\Vhen will lie bo back, do you know?" The voice sounded sardonic now. "Couldn't say, I'm sure." Desperately Monnie sold, "Mr. Harnett, this Is Bill's sister- Monica O'Dare. Is anything i wrong?" I There was an instant's pause- long enough tor Monnie to hear, separately and distinctly, the hissing of the kettle, the ticking of the clock, and the tliump-thump-thump of her own unruly heart. Tlien the man at the other end of the wire said with infinite deliberation: "Wrong enougli, miss. There's been some trouble hero and Bill's gone along to the station with Officer Garvan." "Trouble?" She almost screamed the word. "What sort of trouble?" But the wire clicked. The connection was broken. She put the receiver back on tho hook and went back to tlie kitchen. She stared for an instant at the steaming kcttlo before reaching to turn off the gas. Sbe detached the toaster, noting dully that tho two thin sslices alia had cut were smoldering blackly behind tho wires. Then she put on her hat and wandered out Into the street. She hadn't the least Idea where she was going or what she was to do. Except that Bill was in trouble ami her mother, wherever she was, needed her. every man in the world except Dan Cardigan.

At this point In her reflections Monnie always shook herself vigorously. "This Is nonsense," she would remind herself. "Aren't we all well and strong? Haven't I a Job and a roof over my bead— and—and good Friends?" She was arguing with herself thus one day, hurrying home fur luncb, when she ran straight tutu the arras of a tall man.

GILROY, D. D. Editor of The CongrcKutlonallst A quarrel had arise among the disciples. It was not very creditable to Christian disciples that they should have been quarreling, onr it is appalling, to reailizc how much of religious history has been taken up with quarrels, controversies, and conflicts, often carried out in the bittcrsl and sometimes even in the most vengeful spirit. Nor was there credit to the disciples in the things about which they were , quarreling. ! It was not a high-minded strife about truth and its ..interpretation, or about matters of policy in the proclamation and prosecution of the new religion. Although these men had been given u great commission, and had been sent forth to proclaim the new message of salvation and the gooc news concerning Jesus who had come to' them, tliey were returning from their tour of preaching quarreling upon the low, groveling, human question :is to which of-them was the greatest. It .was to the credit of the disciples that when Jesus asked them wha they had been talking about by thi way they held their peace. After all there is that in man that rebukes him even when he does the .things to which his nature so easily Impels him They were ashamed of the thingabou which they had been quarreling, whei they were challenged by a Maste whose life was lived in a differen spirit and upon a different plane. Manifestly Jesus had to give them a lesson in humility; a lesson whict: would emphasize the supreme thing! lot he had come to teach them. Sol esus took a little child, nnd setting^ his child in the midst of them he re-.l ninded them that it was in their "tllf ude toward such little children, in| he unselfishness, love an dscrvico| hat they could .put into their llvt%| hat they attained real greatness an<l| manifested their attitude uncl loyultyj o him. | Emboldened by this, John, always! rnpeuous, ventured to show how loytill 1C had been by reporting how thai disciples had forbidden a man whom! they wound casting out devils in the| name of Jesus. The reply of Jes was significant. He said that the t^ of service was in its spirit and in it? effect, and not in the supposed authj ority with which one sought to ren| der it. Goodness was not confined to thcji own group, nor was there, n mono, of devotion among those who we called to the select circle. So Jes said, "Forbid him not: for there'-is 1 ! man which shall do a miracle in name, that con lightly speak evil me. For he that is not against us our part." So, Jesus continued, the real test our love for him and of our salvatid is not, found in any formal relation ship, but in the response of our liv^ to his teaching and to his examplj The giving of a cup of cold water someone in need in the name of Jes is much more'than outward profe srion. Our loyalty is manifested ( the nearness of our lives to the life;j Christ, and in the way in which live according to his leaching.

Windows crashed in, iron gratings buckled inward, dust of debris filed the air. It was Morgan who stepped coolly to the shattered doorway nnd steadied the office by his icy nerve. This cold contempt for danger is part of tho Morgan tradition. By heritage, upbringing and experience, Morgan is an aristocrat. Indifferent to Public' Hu believes honestly that his huge bank is his business, none of the public's. He hates all newspapermen, especially cameramen. Yet when he went as American representative to the Reparations Conference, he posed docilely for pictures, talked rather freely. That was public business. Tills is a man who did not hesitate to sell his father's art collection at the Metropolitan when he inherited it, and felt lie owed no word of answer to the bitter criticism that followed. Only years later it learned that he actually needed the cash. This is a Morgan's frank acknowledment of Baker's help .as invaluable, gives Another clue. While there is no question of his dominance over''his House, he dominates without domineering. He takes more advice from partners, relies more on them, than did his father. One thing is clear: Morgan: docs not give a hoot what people think of him personally. He, and his father-before him, and his sons after him, are jealous of the reputation of their house. Even when tendering the services ol the house to President Wilton during the World War, Morgan's words reveal the Morgan mind: '.'I and every member of this house are ready to be commandeered by the government. We will do anything that is right, honorable and not to the. injury of our credit." Revealing words. First the Morgan credit, Mien the war. The Morgan partners are carefully ••"»"T*!ti.~i!Hlir+K.<!*!tf ! ,Kfif\IK!p:* WR yVrf I am n poor judge of talent, but a fair judge of character." The .brilliant, the spectacular, are not wanted. .It is the steady, the reliable that are sought. That is why you have never heard of many of the Morgan partners of today why many of those of the past left no ripple in their passing. Lamont Is "Contact Man" Today, under changed conditions, some contact with the public is'-necessary. Morgan can not make it' But the diplomatic Tom Lamont smiling and with all the tact which was left out of the Morgan makeup, can, and does. Lamont is an ex-newspaper re- not only a glorified for the House, 'but porter, and is "contact man" handles its international business with great skill. He is believed to be at Morgan's right hand, and perhaps.re- ceives an' almost equal share of the profits. NEXT: What the Senate Is driving at in the present Investigation and what it may accomplish.

France "On a Spot" S. S. ILE DE frRANCE, En Route to (Tew York.—(yP)—Former Premier Sdouard Herriot, frankly bewildered iy the shock of America's abandonment of the gold standard, was said 'hursday to feel that all the plans or the Washington discussion with 'resident Roosevelt had been exploded Furthermore, it was said he felt bat some adjustment must be made o meet the new situation. Members of the group of French experts ccompanying him expressed con- ternation at the report of the Amer- can action, one of them exclaiming, We might as well turn around and o back home." Members of the former premier's arty said they felt France now had een placed in an extremely diffi- ult position without warning. It was ecognized that there will be a stiff ght in Paris for and against deval- rization of the franc. French resentment was partly ex- lained by the belief that France ow has been thrown suddenly into monetary isolation by America's ae- on, and that the excellent position t France in the international diplomatic race when M.

Chancellors Turn Down Salary Act Hold Delinquent Lift Mutt Be Published — Appeal - Test Case . • • > < •f the list fecteuttm, the ewflty salary reducttoa law, ww appe^kd • Id the ArkaiiMs Supreme, C*urt Friday, from Millet county, where the law was declared invalid la all Its sections by. Chancellor Bacon Thursday. " LITTLE ROCK.— Movements 'have been launched in Jefferson and Independence counties to initiate 'local salary laws because of the belief that the so-called general county salary law passed by the 1J33 legislature will be held unconstitutional by the Ark-* ansas Supreme Court, it was indicated in reports received Thursday by the Arkansas Gazette. Two chancellors Thursday held the act unconstitutional, one passing specifically upon the salary-fixing provisions and the other upon the rec- :ions which sought to abolish publication of the delinquent land lists. Chancellor Pratt P. Bacon at Texarkana ruling on a petition filed by a Miller county taxpayer for on injunction against enforcement of the Miller county salary provisions, held that the entire act is unconstitutional. He eh' ioined the issuance and payment of salary warants under the act. He held hat the act was local-legislation which :he constitution prohibits the legislature from enacting. At El Dorado, Chanceller George M, LeCroy held the act unconstitutional 'or the same reason and included in lis ruling the sections eliminating the annual publication of delinquent land lists. The chancelor denied a petition seeking an injunction to , prevent bounty Clerk Clyde Byrd from pub- ishing 'the land- list. It was reported that appeals in both cases will be filed in the Supreme -ourt Friday or 'Saturday and that motions will be presented to the court Monday, asking that the cases be ad- anced for early decision. of Hi. yr - .. ...JWJBI Editor Th* StlrT raeStt ru« by. 9*1* f wttr quoted in L "OebrW <fctt;thi >£, "One e* the greatest>1 the quotation -e. .nd in view MX Stray Shot Just Misses Hope Girl 3ertha McRae Narrowly Escapes Death on Tennis Court Miss Bertha McRae, daughter of Mr. ind Mrs. Dorsey McRae of this-city, Would not intu.. for comnifer'citl t _ the prv ; ll*fe,of-e which 1 Mid.* ' - 4 , >,-> It Is as, follows: "One,ofjl est pictures I have evefT •tinfair/and uncalled for a the ,«tti amendment." -< -- - « Cordially; WALLACE •April 21,i 1*» • : s Hope, Ark.
