He likes women and women: like him. Somewhere in the mysterious labyrinths of rumor and gossip and publicity there was germinated the report that the star of the picturized "Cynara" at the Saenger Wednesday and Thursday is shy. The failure-of his own marriage has not made lilm cynical toward all marriage. He believes most decidedly that marriage is an ideal state. But because he is an Englishman, because he is a gentleman and because he is discreet rumor runs rampant thaj Mr. Colman shies of women. On the screen, he continues to be a romantic lover, robust adventurer and polished cosmopolite. Off the screen, he remains a popular backelor, charming, sincere and circumspect. Of the poems published, "Cynara" is one the-best known.'Its poignant refrain, reflecting-a;man's inability to be spiritually untrue to the great love of his life, exactly fits the: situation of "Cynara," which,gives new angles on the question of what faithful love really is. : ..-.•', ,' : .••.'„.

LAST POINT OF BILL Anticipated That Salary Features Are Certain to Be Thrown Out A LITTLE ROCK—(/P)—The •Riestion of whether the legislature had the right to legislate on a matter held previous• ly to be "purely a local matter" has been raised in the appeal of a test case to determine whether the provision of the county salary act of 1933 abolishing publication of the delinquent tax list is valid. This case, now under submission in the'supreme court for a possible decision next Monday, was appealed by W. F. Matthews, a Union county taxpayer, who sought unsuccessfully! in the lower court to enjoin County Clerk Clyde E: Byrd from preparing. tho delinquent tux list for publication. In the original trial, the chancellor held the provision to be unconstitutional. The provision in question was tacked on to the county salary act as an . amendment during the recent legislative session. Mr. Matthews' counsel'contends the general s 'purp r osij o"f ' the *ontlre*act, since the act was to reduce the expenses of county government and of the taxpayers: I'No Local Legislation" But Mr. Byrd's counsel in briefs argued the legislature had no right to legislate, on county salary matters, since the supremo court in deciding the validity of the Union county initiated salary act of last November, isald the fixing of fees and salaries of jjpuvity officers "is purely .n local mat- ler, and is not of interest to persons except the taxpayers in the particular county w.hcrc tho law is enacted. The fixing of salaries and compensations to be paid county officers is of peculiar interest to the taxpayers of the county, and it was legislation of this kind the people intended to provide frtt (in the initiative and referendum amendment). No local mutter could bc more important to them." Mr,. Matthews' counsel contends the section of the act abolishing publication of the delinquent tax list should stand, even though the remainder of tho act—fixing the salaries of county officers—should bc held invalid as local legislation. "Dog Gone—Tall Left" "We .submit," said tho brief for Mr. Byrd, tHat when Section 2 (fixing salaries) fails the only effective part of the act consistent w!t?l the title and purpose of the original bill is gone. Should the appellants' (Mr. Matthews) position be sustaiend it would bc an instance of the tail performing the ""ta of the watch dog after tho dog been removed. We would then have an act radically changing the method «f giving notice to the world and to individual owners of real estate wjief\ taxes on land were delinquent and thp land to be offered for sale for such taxes. And this change would have been made unedr the legislative notice of "A Bill for an Act To Be Eentitled, An Act to Fix the Compensation of County Officers." Union and Phillips counties last fall passe dinitiated acts lowering sal- fall passed initiated acts lowering sal- during the legislative session, their rcpresentalives obtained an agreement from tho house that, not more than 65 votes would be cast for the statewide salary act. This was done to prevent the repeal of their locally initiated acts under the theory that a two-thirds vote of the legislature may repeal an initiated act. to President Cotton Closes 8.64 Cotton established a new "high" for the year Wednesday when July contracts rose $1.35 a ualc, closing at 8.64-5, according to advices to Henry Watkins & Son, Hope, The close was up 27 points from the previous close of 8.37. Wednesday's close of 8.64 compared with the "best previous lop of 8.59, reported last Saturday.

No motive for the alleged poisoning of the Ballew family was advanced by officers. Balli'W sub-rented a farm from Crawford. Five deaths in the Ballew i f amily were first attributed to influenza. Suspicions of officers, however, were aroused and a chemical analysis of the vital organs was said by officers to have revealed poison, which they said also was found in some food in the house. Senate Agrees to Cut Guarantee of Costs; Fight Ends Upper Chamber Comes to Terms With House, Completing Action OPPOSE RAIL BILL Labor Tells Its Side of Story to Committee of Senate WASHINGTON—(/P)—The Morris-Simpson cost-produc- iion-guarfyntee amendment, to ivhich the! administration objected, was stricken from the farm bill by the senate Wednesday, and the bill was sent to President Roosevelt for signature.; The form hill includes a section which gives the president power to expand the currency, and is better known as the "inflation bill." The cost-production-guarantee provision, which was opposed by Secretary, Wallace of the Department of Agriculture, came out as the senate yielded'' to house insistence that it be removed, the- house having stricken it out the day before. „, This, together with an earlier vote, of 52 to 28 approving the report of, senate and house conferees who had agreed on c-very section except the cost-production plan, automatically sent the bill to the president. Labor Fights Rail Plan WASHINGTON—(;P)—A contention that the administration's railroad measure would put,thousands of rail- roa*d v cTHployes out of worK$ffaT€tara economic recovery, was laid before the senate's interstate commerce committee Wednesday by Donald R. Richberg, general counsel for the Railway Labor Executives association. Richberg said the measure would deprive between 50,000 and 300,000 of jobs and would promote policies working harm to the public interest. "The bill enthrones only an infant czar, under the regency of railroad managers," he declared. Atlantan Named Reserve Governor x , ugene Black Succeeds Meyer, Hoover Appointee WASHINGTON — (ff) — President Roosevelt Wednesday named Eugene Black, of Atlanta, governor of the Federal Reserve Board. He succeeds Eugene Meyer, the Hoover appointee who some time ago placed his resignation in the hands of President Roosevelt, to serve until his successor should be named. Black is now governor of the Federal Reserve bank at Atlanta. River Threatening to Wash Out Road U. S. Engineers Are Appealed to in Stuttgart Emergency LITTLE ROCK-K/P)—The United Slates Army Engineers have been asked to take stvps to prevent the further caving of banks of the Arkansas river along the Little Rock-Stuttgart highway, which is endangering the highway. State Director of Highways James R. Rhyne and other engineers, in- eluding one from the army district office at Memphis, recently-inspected the site which is near the state hospital dairy farm five miles east of North Little Rock, and came to the conclusion that revetment work was necessary. The site is along what is properly the old bed of the Arkansas river, but during times of floods, the water churns about a broad bend, undermining the base of a small bluff. Hugh quantities of earth were carried, away at this point during the 1927 flood. FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: ma. u.s.pAT.orr. The fight figure requires little ad dition to ntak ipi »tthactlve smn.

Senate action abandoning its controversial guaranteed cost of production amendment, was all that remained. Administration leaders arranged to have this done Wednesday. Roosevelt followers and Republican conservatives had joined in the housa Tuesday to reject the disputed amendment, 283 to 109, bQT only after a threatened revolt that worried Democratic leaders. Under this amendment the government would guarantee to the farmer a price for his product equal to the cost of production. Threatened Revolt Ended Liberals in both parties, aided by Farm-Laborites, attempted to have the house concur in the amendment. The threatened revolt brought from Representative Byrns of Tennessee, Democratic floor leader, a demand that the Democrats support the president in opposition to the amendment. 'I am authorized to say," Byrns saiQ in concluding two hours of bitter debate in which amendment proponents were often cheered, "that the administration is opposed to this amendment. "I am authorized to say it is absolutely unsound and that it will destroy the very purposes, of this administration bill. There is no reason for its enactment." However 82 Democrats joined 22 Republicans and five Farmer-Laborites in support of the amendmtnt. Republican conservatives numbering 82, including Representative Snell of New York, party leader, joined 201 Democrats, in defeating the senate proposal. Speaker Rainey also voted against the amendment. Prevent Further Delays Before the battle 'Democrats clamped down on the house a rule that prevented further Republican sniping to delay consideration of the conference report. Republicans permitted the rule to be applied without a record vote. After an explanation of the conference report by Chairman Jones, Democrat, Texas, and other members of the Agriculture Committee, the house adopted it by a voice vote, ratifying the agreement between senate and house conferees on more than 80 amendments. Jones then asked the house to reject the "cost of production" amendment and read a statement from the Agriculture Department saying the proposition "is economically unsound and would depress rather than increase farm prices." t ;; The escape was" .thwarted wften w[rs.

' ' "Kingfish" Escapes Trial for Slander But He Quickly Claims the Immunity He Once Had Waived WASHINGTON. - (fl>) —'Because a court found members of Congress cannot waive immunity,. Louisiana's Senator Huey P. Long, was free Tuesday of a slander suit filed against him by Brig. Gen. Samuel T. Ansell, retired, but a libel action by the same plaintiff was allowed to continue. The two suits, each seeking $500,000 damages, were brought against the selfdescribed "Kingfish" . because of the tongue-lashing given Ansell by Long in the 'Senate last February. The libel action, however, was based on alleged distribution of these and other remarks by the senator in leaflets broadcast about the country. Whether Long would be held liable to trial for the distribution of the statements, was not defined in Tuesday's action. Dismissal of the libel suit and the attorney's plea of immunity were made despite Long's boast iri the senate, as reported by the Congressional Record, that "I do not claim any privilege from this scoundrel anywhere on earth under God's living sun."

An Old Quarrel The quarrel between the two South American republics led them almost to'a.declaration of war in-1929.

And as a matter of fact, Mr. Phillips knows practically nothing about paddock or track. He races cockroaches. Actually... And he's doing so wells)— — - — at it that he has been called to Chicago to set up a big cockroach-racing concession for the world's fair, together with a stable of his fleetest runners. Mr. Phillips is, he says, a writer by profession, and has traveled a lot. (He still has a sort of continental accent). Anyway, he discovered that in several European cities, especially Paris.'many people amused themselves by betting on cockroach races. After spending 830 francs on an indolent insect named Francois, which always lay down for a nap. about an inch (Continued on page four) {Sever Touched by "Culture" Until They Learn- About Bridge, Says He Evangelist B. B. Crimm Tuesday night brought a 'tabernacle message on world conditions confronting the church and the ministry. He related the story of Zacheaus and his desire to see Jesus Christ as he passed by. The Rev. Mr. Crimm said that anyone .desiring to see Jesus in' faith'and for forgiveness of sins, must first leave the crowd that separates them' from Jesus, just as Zacheaus did. "Many of you right here in Hope are held back by the crowd. Until you leave your crowd you will never see Jesus. There are several gangs in Hope. 1 want to discuss them. They are not organized, of course. But the old saying is true: 'Birds of a feather flock together.' ''The first gang I want to open up on is .that old church-hating gang. You have them in this town. I hate them like I hate the devil. I wish I could find something low enough to compare them to. They are the lowest, most ignorant bunch I know of, and they are against everything that is pure and holy, and for everything that is vile and degrading. They are anti-God, anti-prohibition, anti-everything in God's world that stands for decency and righteous living. The biggest institution in Hope is the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. You owe everything to it. My plea is that those who are fooled by this gang will quit them and come back to God and the church. "If I didn't have a sense of humor I wouldn't mention this next gang- that is, the society crowd. Hope's society—wouldn't that get you? That must be some ambition—social aspirations in Hope. And sister, if you got to the top and fell out—wouldn't that be some fall? "What tickles me is this—a sister may be as ignorant as the heather. She will say 'seen' for 'saw,' 'took' for 'taken,' 'wuz' for 'were,' but the minute she learns how to play bridge she bepomes so cultured that it's redicu- lous. They wouldn't "know real culture from pig tracks. "My plea is that you women will break up this gang, leave the bridge- playing, booze-drinking and dancing gang, and come back to the church and Jesus Christ. Make your life count for something worth while. "No 1 doubt many of you have been criticized for making a stand for God in this meeting. Just remember no real man or woman would be guilty of such criticism.' Wednesday night's sermon subject —"Picture Show, Swimming Pool, Joy Ride and Dance."
