Studio designers try to anticipate the trend of fashion as the gowns they design are fashioned many months before they reach the screen. One of the new types of low cut evening dress was made for Bette Davis in "Ex-Lady," now showing at the Saen- Bette, who was recently selected by a New Vork designer as one of the seven! smartest women of filmdom, wears in the picture a gown of pink mat crepe, with high beaded collar, cut to an extreme decolletage both under the arms and in the back. The front neckline, however, is high. In "Ex-Lady" Mass Davis has the role of a sophisticated young woman of the New York artist colony who scoffs at the conventions of marriage, believing that love can only last with freedom. The complications that arise through this mode of life forms a lively and entertaining subject for the screen. A.OTU.W.PaysIts First Local Claim ^ Ii0t 175x100 feet. With North and i South approach.

HOPE > ARKANSAS^EDNESDAY, MAlT 3,193S Here and There •Editorial By Alex. H, Washburn- A SIDE from its religious purpose, every Revival meeting affords a city the chance to see itself through the eyes of a visitor, The Rev, B, B. Crimm, as reported in today's Star, said Tuesday night that poker games are being maintained in Hope, and slot-machines are operated openly. '' Although many of this paper's policies bring It Into conflict with the Rev. Mr. Crimm, the public knows Where we stand on open gambling. This Is a liberal newspaper, opposed to oppressive restrictions which arc not absolutely demanded for the safety and well-being of the people. But we never have countenanced gambling. Two years ago we launched a crusade and expelled the sioi-machines from Hope. If they have come back it Isn't because the people don't know about it. And that, as the Rev. Mr. Crimm will probably tell them, is between them and their Maker. XXX The greatest benefit civilization has bestowed on the 20th century is the ree medical examination of children about to enter the public schools. Hope's public clinic will be held all day Friday at the city hall, local phy- Smith Following Federal Practice on State Expense All Voucher* Must Be "Laid on Comptroller's Table" for S Days NOTIFIES GOVERNOR When Expenses Are Over ReVenues the Executive Can Retrench 1 LITTLE ROCK — (/P) — What has been accomplished nationally by the director of budget is fast becoming order in Arkansas' state government through laws that gave the state comptroller at least the advisory power to control expenditures. For the first time in the state's history, all vouchers for expenditures must be "laid upon the table" in State Comptroller Griffin Smith's office for five days. This procedure is designed to keep the comptroller posted each day on the appropriation balances for each department. Under the same law— the pre-audit .act—the comptroller is directed to keep the governor posted as to the treasury balances, and to make estimates of available revenues. In event the cash, or anticipated revenues, are insufficient to pay appropriations, then it becomes the comptroller's duty to notify thp governor, who may slash the general rev. cnue fund appropriations in an amount to bring them within.- the revenues.-'' '\ M~ VjT^..^~-' Vigorous Action The pre-audit law already has brought changes in the procedure of state departments, and it has been invoked in its more severe provisions once. That was when Governor Futrell by executive order trimmed the general revenue fund appropriations $200 000, to bring them within the anticipated revenue of $300,000 for the last three months of this fiscal year, new system started April 1, and that time all vouchers—for what, ever sum or purpose—have been submitted to the comptroller. One of the requirements laid down by Mr. Smith is that receipts must be attached to vouchers before they are approved by him. Tliis requirement has been met generally, he said, but since disbursing agents under the old system were in the habit of merely typing the vouchers and sending them through the auditor's office for warrants, it has been hard for some of them to get the new habit. This has resulted, Mr. Smith said, in having their vouchers hold up temporarily. 1'asscs on Vouchers Only During the first few days of April Mr. Smith said he was called upon frequently for information as to whether he would approve a voucher if drawn. Invariably, he said, he has insisted that he would withhold approval of any transaction —* !1 ' " sicians co-operating with Miss Flora Cotton, county nurse.

XXX With cotton well above 8 cents, Ar- ..ansas receives the additional welcome news that Little Rock's banking fraternity has finally reorganized and returned to normal business. Although our own community came through the banking crisis with flying colors we can't discount the fact that Little Rock has delayed a more general recovery throughout Arkansas. The capital city held 10 per cent of all the bank deposits in the state. Its per capita wealth is, twice the Arkansas averagei No state , could look confidently to the future with such a situation existing at its trade center, > ; Today the situation is cleared ^up.

Cincinnatian New Treasurer of U. S. W. A. Jilian, Ex-Shoe Manufacturer, Accepts Appointment CINCINNATI, Ohio.- (ff>) — W. A. Jilian, retired Cincinnati shoe manufacturer and Ohio member of the Democratic National Committee, Wednesday announced his acceptance of the post of treasurer of the United Governor Futrell's Name on Warrant Discovered I, to Be False Forged Warrant LITTLE ROCK — (ff) — State Auditor J. Oscar Humphrey Wednesday branded as a forgery a warrant for $156. 77 drawn on the penitentiary fund and made payable to Willis E. Hirsch, which had been presented to the treasurer for payment but refused- The warrant was endorsed as approval under the signature "J. M. Futrell," but the governor said this signature was a forgery. A hurried investigation revealed that Hirsch, who was sentenced several months ago to 9 years' imprisonment for forgery and uttering, had been given a 30 r day furlough to allow him to be treated for tuberculosis. Humphrey said this was the third warrant turned down as a forgery within the past two days, although the warrants were not available at'his office Wednesday for comparison. The $156.77 warrant is signed "R. R. Rice, disturbsing agent" and in addition to Hirsch's name, the warrant bears the name "Henry Goldman" as an endorsement. The warrant was cleared through .the Mercantile-Commerce Trust comr pany of St. Louis, and was presented to-the treasury in Wednesday morning's clearances.

Sunday A mass meeting of all temperance workers and advocates is called at Hope city hall at 3 p. m. Sunday, May 7. The Rev. Rex B. Wilkes, pastor of the Methodist church at Gurdon, will be the main speaker. His subject will be: "Why I Am Opposed to Repeal of the 13th amendment."

For instance, officials wishing to buy stamps for their departments musi lend the cash to the state for five days. The capiol postoffice sub-station will not sign receipts for stamps on the mere evidence of a voucher. The governor's office, incidentally, was the first department to feel the effects of this requirement.

Mrs. Ralph Routon and Miss Bery Henry were hostesses to the Hope B. & P. W. Club at the home of Mrs Routon on North Hervey street Tues day night. The reception rooms were gay with quantities of gorgeous roses and the dining table was centered with a basket of lovely syringa. Since this is national music week the hostesses presented an appropriate program. Mrs. Routon is a musician md composed of more than local note and Miss Henry, for several years, has furthered the cause of music in the Hope public, schools of which she is superintendent. Miss Martha Jean Winburn, of Hope High School faculty, reviewed an article, "Music, Now More Than Ever," by the Treasury William H. Woodin, which is featured in the current issue of Etude. Mr. Woodin's musical activities are receiving much attention at this time and he called attention in the article he wrote for Etude that many of the morld's most successful business and professional men have chosen music for their avocation.

Continuing, the evangelist asked his audience 1 the pertinent question, "What have you sold out for?" , "Many ; of you. have sold out foi cussin'. If I were talking to college graduates I'd say 'cursing.' Cussin' is the; cheapest, most vulgar and despic able sini in the catalogue. It doesn]' mean 'you are smart or brave ,i means that you are ignorant and a low-brow coward taking advantage o a great and merciful God.' In thi sight of God, cursing is worse thai murder, stealing arid adultery. Gpd in His commandments gave specia emphasis and judgment to the sin o cursing. Cursing is a sin against man society and God. Every day that have been in this city I have heard someone cuss." Sabbath-Breakers "Sold out for Sabbath-Breaking— God said; remember the Sabbath day o keep it holy. Breaking the Sabbath reminds me of that bunch of hood- urns who almost yelled their heads off at the ball game Sunday. Then _ drove down town and saw automo- >iles parked for three blocks around he theater. "It is my conviction that if you break God's holy day by going to Sunday shows, ball games, play golf or play bridge, it is as bad as stealing or adultry. If you can't show me I'm wrong about that then I'll fight it until hell freezes over." Five Poker Games 'Sold out for Gambling—There are [ive poker games that run wide open in this city every day, One is in a professional man's office, another is in prominent place of business, and there's three more scattered about the city. The women even gamble. I'd rather be a negro crap-shooter than a high-brow woman who plays bridge for-money, Hope has its pool halls, the slot machines and domino parlors. That's gambling, I'm right and I dare you to say I'm wrong. Thar's squirrels in them thar holes. The old cowboy is gettin' on a hot trail now. "The man who will gamble will steal a nickel off a dead negro's eye anc think he's got a bargain. Do you hear me. All you gamblers here?
