TH\S STORE A With only three more Saturdays to go, there was no change in Monday's count of Prosperity club votes. The Ipst Baptist church turned "almost twice as many votes during the past week as any other club or organization entered in the contest for $180 in cash prizes. The Baptist church closed up much of the lead the P.-T. A. has held over them heretofore. Many good members of various organizations entered in the contest evi- idently forget to ask for their votes from Prosperity club stores particpat- ing. Since but a small number of votes was given out the last two weeks, one of the lowest entrants in trc list could easily secure enough votes to put its church or organization in the lead, if a large number of members of that contesting organization secured their votes with all purchases, and asked their friends and neighbors to trade with Prosperity club firms. Standing Unchanged There is no change in the standing from a ^^ag^aTj&^Wjishington P.-T. A. and the Henry Yerger School turned in ho votes during the past week, and will be dropped from the contest unless they secure a reasonable number of votes before next Monday's count. Today's count follows: Hope P.-T.

Second prize is $30, and $50 is to be equally divided among the clubs remaining in the contest up to the close. The following firms give votes with all purchases: Patterson's Department Store, Patterson's Grocery, Gibson Drug Co., Gorham & Gosnell, New Capital Hotel and Cafe, Mack Service Station, Marinello Beauty Shop, The Gift Shop, Ward- & Son, druggists, McRae Hardware Co., Middlebrooks Grocery, Hitt's Shoo Store, Hempstead County Co., J.

But every section of America has cyclones. When I was a reporter on Wilkcs-Barrc (Pa.) Record in the 1920 there was a legend about a cyclone having crossed South Wilkcs-Barre 25 years before. It lacked a few months of being 25 years. Twenty-five years to the month, the day and tho hour, another cyclone came over the west mountain wall, crossed the same section of town, the same street of that section, and killed the daughter of a woman killed 25 years earlier. Maybe cyclones don't wait 25 years to come around again in our section — but I think the longer they wait the more terror they strike into the hearts of men. Love Piracy Case Is Given to Jury Ex-Wife Testifies She Knew of 3 of Cleric's ' "Affairs" •• - - • - OMAHA, Neb.- (/P) -The $50,000 alienation of affections suit of Mrs. Iva Baltzly, divorced wife of Dr. O. D. Baltzly, former Omaha pastor, against Miss Gertrude Grucnig was placed in the hands of a district court jury late Monday. The trial began one week ago. The marriage of Dr. Blatzly, 61, and Mrs. Baltzly was dissolved by divorce in 1931 at Hot Springs, Ark. He returned here 10 days ago as a witness in the defense of Miss Grucnig. He testified his home life had been "extremely unhappy" and that Mrs. Baltzly had been "very jealous." Mrs. Baltzly returned to the stand to deny the statements. She testified she had learned of three or four "affairs' 'of her ex-husband, and that he once referred to a girl in Mansfield, Ohio, where he held a pastorate before corning here, as "almost irresistible." . u Miss Gruenig was a member of Dr. Baltzly's congregation here. O'n the stand she denied any attempt to alienate the minitser's love ,as charged by Mrs. Baltzly. German Unions Are Seized by Hitler Nazis Now Control Headquarters for 5'/2 Million Unionists BENTON, Ark— (/P)—The accidental discharge of a rifle with which two youths were playing resulted in the death of one, Oscar Hill, 16, at a hospital here Monday night.

The crowd Monday night was estimated at 1,800 persons, only 200 short of the throng that jammed the big tent Sunday night. The First Methodist church broke off relations with the Crimm revival party Sunday night following a denunciation of regular clergymen by Lhe Rev, Mr. Crimm, "cowboy evangelist." Crimm Makes No Reply In speaking to his audience Monday night the Rev. Mr. Crimm was silent concerning the break between the Methodist church and his party. The Rev. Mr. Crimm was less sarcastic in his condemnation of dancing, smoking, movies and "professional preachers," but promised his congregation Tuesday night that he would speak on "the City of Hope sold out to the devil, hook, line and sinker, and lock, slock and barrel." A spirited song service was heard Monday night by the large choir and the congregation led by Mr. Powell, who brought the audience to spirited heights in song. Personal Experiences The Rev. Mr. Crimm brought a message of personal experiences from his life in reaching the tough, wicked and 'gospel-hardened type of men. He appealed to his audience to talk to the unsaved, bring them to the services that they might hear his message of salvation and have an opportunity to accept the gospel, stating that under the influence and power of the Holy Spirit they can be reached for the Lord. The Rev. Mr. Crimm stated that many persons "have crossed the dead- lino of God's blessings and are lost. I urge you, should God deal with you during these days that you will not rebel and harden your hearts but come and accept Christ. It is your call and may be .your last." Ralyying in the bitterness of nearly a year's work without pay, 5000 Chicago school teachers arc shown here gathering in Grant Park . for their descent on the banks.

Jews Persecuted for Independence Rev. W. R. Rogers Holds German Events Too Recent for Judgment A small, but appreciative audience Monday night at Hope city hall, heard the Rev. Wallace R. Rogers, pastor of Firct Baptist church of this city, discuss "The 'Significance of the Persecution of the Jews." under the auspices of the International Relations committee of the Hope B. & P. W. Club, of which Miss Jean Laseter is chairman. Dr. Rogers stressed the fact that the persecution of the Jew which has just taken place in Germany, is too recent to bo correctly studied or discussed, that years will be necessary tn create a persepctive which will make discussion fair and unbiased. "Two factors," said Dr. Rogers, must be considered before harsh criticism or unstinted praise are allowed. These arc the nearness, historically speaking, of all that has taken place, and the human characteristics of prejudice. The latter is perhaps worse than the former, for the prejudices which bring about racial abuse, will also bring cbout false statements concerning abuse." The speaker cited tales of atrocities pcrpctarled during the World war which served to fan so-called patriotism to an intense heat, but time has disproven the veracity of the reports. "There must be more than one side to such a tremendously important question as the one we are discussing tonight," said Dr. Rogers, "and it is well to consider it from different angles before forming conclusions of sort." "Hitler's dislike for the Jew, endorsed by his Nazi supporters, is based primarily on the nationalistic spirit predominant in Germany, as in many other countries of the world. The Jew refuses to bas assimilated; he has House Debate on Inflation Begins Expect to Vote to Throw Bill Into; Senate Conference Wednesday !.J WASHINGTON.— (/P) —T h e house sailed into six hours of stiff debate Tuesday on the • inflation program, preliminary to a vote by which the leaders expect Wednesday to take this plan of a controversy into a conference with the senate on the general farm bill. The senate meanwhile voted on amendments to the Muscle Shoals and Tennessee valley development plan. May Open World Fair WASHINGTON.—(/P)—Pros. Roosevelt is trying to get to Chicago to open the World's Fair there in June, and he also plans to spend most of the summer away from Washington, it was learned Tuesday. Tho trip to Chicago is only tentative at present, because he has agreed to go to Annapolis June 1 to deliver the Naval Academy graduates their diplomas. The World's Fair is scheduled to open the same day, but it is said if it is postponed a day or two he might make the western trip. His plans for the summer are unsettled as yet.

Large blocks of railroad issues changed hands during the afternoon, especially toward the close, at gains of $1 to more than $5 a share.

Hope Relatives in Minden Reported as Safe Tuesday Several Hope Residents in Doomed ,City as Twister Struck FIRST-REPORT HERE Railroad .Wires Brought Bulletin Early Monday Night No relatives of Hope residents were killed or injured in a tornado which s'w e p t through Minden, La., late Monday afternoon, as far as could be learned here Tuesday.

Keen interest was attached to it because Minden, located on the L. & A. between Hope and .Shrevepbrt, has had a frequent exchange of railroad men and other citizens with Hope for many years. Pre-School Clinic to Be Held Friday Postponed From Wednesday Because of State Medical Meeting Postponement of the pre-school-age examination clinic to be held at Hope city hall, from Wednesday to Friday, was announced Tuesday. The delay was made necessary by the fact that many Hope physicians have been called to the state medical meeting now in session at Hot Springs. The free examinations for children of 6 or under, will begin at 8:30 o'clock Friday morning May- 5, and continue all day. "Mothers and Babies First" is the May Day slogan, which was chosen by the child health day committee of the Conference of State and Provincial Health Authorities of North America, because the committee of health officers realized and wanted the country to realize that if babies and expectant, nursing mothers are neglected now it cannot be made up for later on. This day has been observed for nine years and provide san excellent opportunity for public agencies and private organizations to work together.

Chief of Police Clarence Baker and his force of officers delved deeper into the robberies in an effort to bring about an arrest and a solution to the raiding of four business houses and the cracking of three safes which netted robbers over $500 in loot. Officers withheld the suspect's name on account of his mental condition and the lack of clues, they said. Business houses entered were: Hope Feed 'Store, Ritichie Grocer company, Southern Grain & Produce Co., and Young Chevrolet company. One suspect was picked up when officers learned that he had been seen prowling around the Southern Grain & Produce company in his bare feet in the early morning hours following the attempted robbery of that place. It was entered Wednesday and Frida'y nights. The combination of the safe was battered and knocked off, but the robber failed in his effort to open it. When the suspect was questioned by police he denied any knowledge of the four robberies. He was seen around the Southern Grain building early Saturday morning. None of the loot has been recovered, except some insurance papers, mortgages and deeds that were taken from the Hope Feed store. They were found in a clump of weeds on South Pine street where they were tossed. Over $200 was taken in checks and currency from the safe of Hope Feed store on West Third street. At Ritchie Grocer company $292.75 was taken in cigarette and cigar stamps. A small amount of change was stolen from Young Chevrolet, while at Southern Grain & Produce company nothing was missing after two unsuccessful attempts to open the safe.

It is getting your full money's worth for less than you expected to pay. • However, of late, too many so- called bargains have turned out to be costly mistakes. Because the quality did not come up to expectations. There is a way to find out whether any article represents full value for your money. That is to depend upon the advertisements in this newspaper. Or any other newspaper which has a paid circulation, and tries to shoot square with its subscribers above all else. It costs money to advertise. An article has to be good before a merchant will buy space to suggest that you buy it. For the future reputation of his store stands back of what he says in that kind of a newspaper. s You' may rest assured that he is not trying to wish off on you an item which he bought in the mistaken belief that it was a so-called bargain. He has reasons for beliving any one item is well worth the price when he advertises it in the Hope Star. And the selling expense is lower, because larger quantities of advertised products are sold, with no increase in rent, lights, taxes, etc. Follow the Hope Star advertisements and you'll find merchandise of a aaulity that will give you full measure of service and usefulness.
