Bradley, perennial Derby winner, to victory in the 59th renewal of the blue grass classic at.Churchill Downs Sat- Airday afternoon before 40,000. It was the most thrilling finish in recent years. Only a nose .separated the winner from Mrs. Silas B. Mason's Head Play. Charley, O was hi third place, four lengths back, with Ladys. man, champion two-year-old and favorite in the: betting, fourth, a length and a half behind the Chicago-owned colt. • ._: •• ; " - . '.:..•••• . Backers of the lone Bradley starter eceived J19.86 for each $2 invested o win, J6.28 for place and $4.54 to show. 'Head Play rewarded with'$5.52 or place and $4.08 to show Charley O was $3.84 to show. Tune, over a good but not fast track, was 2:06 4-5 for the mile and one- quarter. Net value to the winner was 48,925 with a $5,000 gold trophy. ' Foul Claim Registered Immediately after the finish, or as soon as Jockey Fisher who piloted lead Play : could canter back to the udge's stand,, dismount and ascend the official pagoda, he lodged a claim of Foul against Jockey D. Meade on Broker's Tip. The claim was disallowed as the great crowd was cheering the winner on his progress into the inner enclosure with a garland of flowers over his withers. There Colonel Bradley received the gold cup awarded the whining owner. Opinions varied on what happened in the last 70 yeards just as so often happens, when many ^persons see the same thing with; different eyes. In -the ^ extremely ' close quarters where this' leading pair found them, selves with Broker's .Tip'on the. inside, '•;' Jockey Fisher . claimed 'that Meade took hold of him to impede the progress of his mount. Certainly Fisher seemed to take a slash at at Meade with his whip after the horses had passed the imaginary wire denoting the finish. In the jockey room afterwards, the boys came to blows, j As Zroker's Tip's nose nodded in front, Head Play's head was almost sidewise either from an attempt to war out under the punishment or be- ause he was being crowded by his ival who needed what narrow space IB had to keep from going over the nfield fence. There were some who ilamed Head Play's boy for allowing he Bradley colt to come through on he inside and'though he was match- ng until too late the outside positions where Charley O's . formidable chal- .enge at the head of the stretch had faded. Broker's Tip had come from far back in the early stages, emerged from a compact t>unch while stil a half mile from Ihe wire and then wore down the leader in the manner described. Continuation' of the argumen whether Broker's Tip or Head Play i the better colt now will continue un til after decision of other three-year old stakes of the season. Ladysman, favorite, had no excuse to offer as the race was run for he was hi favorable position when the real test began with no noticeable interference to impede his progress had the requisite speed been there. 1^ NOTICE ^'Spring housecleamng calls fo •*"'-ighouse Vacuum Cleaners „„ 257 for demonstration.

The Star Is laying the facts before Lead in Prosperity Contest Is Taken by Baptist Church P.-T. A. Second, and Hinton Sunday School in Third Place TO CLOSE MAY 20 Only Two Weeks Remain for $180 Prize Distribution With less than two weeks remaining of the prosperity club contest the First Baptist church nosed out the P.-T. A. for first place. Hintori Sunday School of Patmos the Cemetery nssoclntion polled Rnost as many votes during the past week, however, and advanced to third mid fourth place In the list. The Wjpsh- ington P.-T. A. dropped out. After this week any organization not polling one thousand votes between each count will be dropped from the contest. Votes will be counted late Thursday, and announced in the next day's paper. Next week, the final week of the contcst, the votes will be counted three times, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Closes May 20 The contest closes Saturday night, May 20, at which time the winner of the $180 to be distributed will be chosen. First prize is $100 in cash. The new count is as follows:- Firsl Baptist Church 93,330 Hope P.-T.

A large number of people casting a nail amount of votes will run into ^ ^ totals than depending upon *onfy a few people casting large numbers of votes. Most all purchases in Hope stores arc for but ?2 or ?3 each. This leaves an opportunity for almost any entrant to win first prize yet, if they can get u lurge following among shoppers for their favorite church or organization. There remains only this and next week lo decide what organization will win. Several organizations have many good members out working for votes, wilh the determination of winning the $100 for their favorite, and it is ex-'' peeled thai n lurge number of voles will, be cast during the next few days. the public'in today's issue. * Tho people of Pike county, which has no important trade centers, want to come across the Little Missouri river to Hope and Prescott. The State Highway Department, completing a now bridge near Mur- frccsboro, is releasing the old one to be placed anywhere that Pike, Hempstead and Nevada Can ngrce on. Here is a three-county project that hns to be accomplished if Hope is to benefit from future trade In the rich Delight river bottom section. But it won't be accomplished unless an interested public gets behind its officials and demands action. XXX County money is not to bo had nowadays. Apparently the only way this can be hnndlcd is for the directors of R. F. C. funds in the three counties to back up the officials by agreeing to provide the labor, which is the largest item of expense. As far as Hcmpstcnd is concerned, it ought lo be agreeable for the northern townships adjacent to Blevins and McCaskill to see their labor quota turned to this purpose. And because such a bridge would be of special trade advantage to them, the people along No. 29 from Blevins to Hope, the Cily of Hope, and Ihe people along No. 24 from Blevins to Prescott, and the City of Prescott, should be more than willing to spend part of Ihcir quota. XXX There would be no special advantage to citizens of the southern part of HempstcHd or Nevada, and therefore no part of their R. F. C. allotments would be available. But enough R. F. C. money is being spent every month in the vicinity of the proposed bridge location to probably complete this project. The crying need of the R. F. C. program is permanent projects—something that will stand years afterward as a tribute to the'vast soims poured out by the federal government during these panic years. •Nothing is more wbrth-Svhile than a bridge, that carries farm people into trade centers. We are offered,a chance to bridge it once and for all—and if our citizens get behind the project it should be completed this summer.

'For whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord, shall be saved.' We were elected in Jesus Christ before the foundation of the world and we enjoy and experience His salvation when we accept the election by faith in Him." "Many are trying to find contentment in pleasure. The world is pleasure-mad. But pleasure will never satisfy. "You may drink at the fountain of pleasure only to drink the biller dregs of a wasted life, your body ruined and your soul lost. Education cannot satisfy. Mr. Edison, with, one of the greatest minds that America has ever produced, was asked by a reporter once if he was happy. Mr. Edison replied: 'There is no happiness in this life.' "Poor old man, he never looked at the right source of true happiness and contentment. "Hear me. All true happiness and contentment is found at the foot o£ the Cross of Jesus Christ The end of the rainbow is at the Cross and the pot of gold is an old-fashioned case of Holy Ghost religion. "God help you to realize it and find the Christ at Calvery and thus bring true happiness to your soul in the knowledge of sins forgiven. "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. And lei him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him. "There is a difference belween a wicked man and an unrighleous man. The drunkard is wicked. The immoral man is wicked. The Sabbath breaker and Ihe gambler is wicked and so on. The unrighteous man is Ihe man who does not live a wicked life of self indulgence such as these, but lives a good moral life, without Jesus Christ."

LITTLE BOCK—The Fact Finding Tribunal of the Arkansas Corporation Commission, created by Act 72"of 193? to investigate the ra.te.struc- ture of Arkansas utility concerns, begins its first investigation Tuesday at Helena in response to a petition of-the Helena city council to look into the- gas, water and electric rates of the Arkansas Utilities Company>7%^"^- ; ^'^'^^ George L.

They will return to Little Rocl by the end of the week to confer wit] P. A. Lasley; chairman of the tribunal, upon the'number of engineers', 'ac countants and technicians needed. The tribunal will investigate th basis of rates now .charged by th utility Company and. then present its findings to the city council, Mr. Las ley said. The company will be:fur nished a copy of the findings and wil have an opportunity to appeal for an other investigation if the city counci takes the matter into court to h£!ve the rates' reduced. The tribunal has, not yet complete the organization of its engineering accounting, and clerical staff, but ex pects to be in a position to begin ah immediate investigation upon the fil ing of the Helena research survey Approximately 60 "city councils have petitioned the tribunal to investigate .utility rate structures. Reduction Coming WASHINGTON. —Lower gas an other utility rates for the consume appeared in prospect Monday nigh after a sweeping decision of the Unit ed States supreme court. The court ruled that the 'lowei prices which the utility companies pa; for wages and materials, as well a the lower value of their properties 01 a replacement basis, justified reduc tion in rates charged Ihe public. The decision was handed down ii Ihe case of the Los Angeles Gas & Electric Co. which sought to setasid as confication of its property a 9 pe cent flat gas rate reduction orderec by the California railroad commission wrich has jurisdiction over utility rates. The case was in line with the earlie decision of the court, which in th time of high prices, held that the cur rent replacement cost of utility prop erty must be considered in sstimalin Ihe "fair value" for rale making pur poses of utility property. Same Rule Holds Today The court Monday in substance hel that this applied equally to presen day conditions when the nation un mistakably was headed loward lower price levels. The majority opinion was read by Chief Justice Charles- Evans Hughes who wrote 'the earlipr decision.
