Now all these things being true I am deliberately going to contradict myself. I am about to say that there arc times when a child needs a forceful lesson in instant retribution. A Story in Point Not so long ago, a litle girl six years eld discovered that the quickest Way to get what she wanted was to use her hands. She struck her nurse, her mother, other children who came to play and finally her baby sister. Each lime she was punished, but always in some way that had no direct association with the crime. At first icr mother talked to her about her riends, that no one would love her r play with her. Nxet she put her i o bed each time it happened. After ha tshe took her bicycle away for hree days, and in turn most of her irized possessions. But it never did much good. Bunny cept on with her hitting. One day he tripped over the dog, the dog growled at her, and she went back ind deliberately pounded him. The Right Medicine Her mother was about to order her upstairs and was racking her brains about what to do next when suddenly she changed her mind: '"Bunny, come here." 'She laid Bunny over her nee and spanked her properly. "Until you tell me that you never intend to hit anyone or anything again, I am going to keep on," she said grimly. And Bunny sobbed, ."I'll promise Mommy! I do promise. I'll remember. I'll never hit anybody again." Then and then only her mother stopped. "Every time you strike a person or an animal," she warned her weeping daughter, "I shall have to hurt you the same way. I won't have it. It's got to stop." And so far, I hear, the rlcatmcn has succeeded. Buny has reformed a last.

ILL GLORIFYING YOURSELF By Alicia Hort ©1033 MCA scnvite iwr . • Most girls make-up carefully when heir b?st 'beuux are coming Saturday lights. But how many young wives take the time to make-up after the babies arc put to bed and it's time to sit down to dinner with hubby? Dash some cold water onto your face, when you've tucked in the infant. Then use a lUtle powder base for a face lotion, put on your rouge lipstick and even a bit ot eye-shadow dust over the powder and sec if yoi won't contribute a little more to the. evening's entertainment. Probably the greatest benefit wil be to yourself. Just getting that las glimpse of yourself looking pretty wil do something to your spirits. Thos same spirits will do something to malt your' husband forget inflation, th extra work he's doing for the sam pay. Your hnir is very important. Than fortune the old days of curl paper and "boudoir caps" urc gone. Prac .ically 80 per cent of women nov .nke pride in keeping their hair "fix cd." But not that many take th time or trouble to do it over and tak some pains with it every evening Why don't you pay special attention to it! BV BRUCE CAlfON "the House of Exile," by Nora Wain, is a book that belongs on the same shelf with "The Good Earth." In it this descendant of Philadelphia Quakers tells how she lived for years in $\6 home of a Chincsa upper-class family, in their homestead along the grand canal in the north of China. The picture of Chinese life which she gives is, in its own way, as revealing, as faithful and hs fascinating as tile picture Mrs. Buck gave us. The Lin family, with whom Miss Wain lived, exemplifies perfectly the way in which China Is governed by families. Its homestead—a vast, rambling building in which some 80 members of the family liyed—was built 650 years ago; but because the main branch of the' family still lived in Canton, to the south, the place was known as "The House of Exile." Tho family had written records of its existence for 104 generations; furthermore, eacli member had these records perfectly memorized. The family had seen 17 royal Chinese dynasties come and go. Is it any wonder that such people feel that the ups and downs of government are minor matters, so long as the family itself survives? Chinese life, Chinese culture, be- ome infinitely clearer to one who cads this book. So, by the way, do 10 current developments of tho Sino- npancse imbroglio, which Miss Wain escribes at length. Read it and you v'M understand why the Chinese look n all the rest of us as' barbarians; ou may even sympathize with their icwpoint.

Washburn- T HE Democratic State Committee ia meeting at Little Rock .Saturday to determine whether the party's nominees for the supreme court and congress races July 18 shall be chosen by a special primary, a convention, or left to a "free-for all" in the. main election. The committee should order a special primary, or leave to a free-for-all. In no other way do the people have a Chance. As this paper has already pointed -©out, the Futrcll administration while an Improvement on past state mi- chines has the same general attributes —the appointment of close friends and supporters to high office, and the placing of members of their family on the state's pay roll. The administration controls the state committee, as every administration in the past has controlled it. The democratic standard cannot be State Committee Decides Saturday on Court Election Will Either Call Convention or Leave Election Wide Open ASK FREE-FOR-ALL Most of Committee Favor the Less Costly Procedure LITTLE ROCK—(/P)—The oig question facing members of the democratic state central tnmittee as they prepared Saturday's special meeting here appeared Friday to be whether to call a special state convention to nominate a party candidate for chief justice of the supreme court or leave the July 18th special general election open to all candidates to file by petition. ' ;• The new law which becomes effective June 9, requiring a run-off to all primaries, was regarded In political circles as virtually definitely eliminating the question of calling a special primary election. Thirty days' notice is required to call u primary, and it now would be impossible to call and hold one before tho run-off primary law becomes effective next month. Thus the Democratic candidates would be put to the expense of two primaries if that method should be adopted. 4.. -,-: . Froe-for-AU. Likely "%' J : ;V| ; Strong opposition has develop^ to ... the c.«nveoiion .plan.,nnd>4ho. proposal to leave "the special election open to all candidates to file by petition appeared in most favor, What tho state committee does about tho chief justiceship is expected to be followed in connection with vacancies to be filled in two- chancery court judgcships, and possibly in numerous ounty offices. Governor J. M. Futrell issued the call this week for the special election J&fill all vacancies in offices ranging {•ft mlhe chief justiceship down to Township offices on July 18, the date of the referendum on repeal of the Eighteenth amendment. The state committee meeting will open at 10 a. m. Saturday in the Hotel Marion ball room here. The committee has thirty-four members including Chairman Lee Miles and Secretary Harvey G. Combs. Would Be Wide Open 'Should the committee leave the special election open and make no provisions for selecting a Democratic nominee in advance, any Democrat or member of any political party or independent could file as candidates by petition. They could do so regardless but if a Democratic nominee were chosen before the election, any other Democratic candidates would have to run as independents. The state Republican organization has decided against running a candidate for chief justice. The three Democrats who have announced their candidacy are C, E, Johnson, now serving as chief justice .jjKder appointment by the governor pending the election; Carroll D, Wood, retired associate justice, and W. H. Arnold, Sr., of Texarkana. Berry Production Cut by Weather W. A. McCuIley, Route Two, Reports About One- Third of a Crop W. A.

At that time a display of clothing demonstrations will be shown to the visitors by Miss Ruth Taylor, home economics instructor of the school. delegated to any ono nominee by a group of commltteemen handpicked by the administration, . They will all be good Democrats in that election July 18, and if the state committee wishes to preserve the formality of an official Democratic choice, then they should leave this choice likewise to the people by ordering a special primary. XXX Milo Reno, radical farm leader, says that notwithstanding President Roosevelt's signing of the farm relief-inflation bill he will proceed with his farm strike Saturday. A good many people Will express horror—and yet the prospect of direct action by an organized farm population is the most encouraging sign this nation has seen during the depression. Had the.farmers of-America had the capacity for organization, had they shown the stickabillty of trades-union members in the great cities, they long ago would have improved their situation insofar as political action is able to improve it. XXX I do not think political action can do much for. the individual. But the failure of agriculture to organize, at a time when industry, labor and the railroads were organized to the very teeth, has helped to make the rich cities richer, and helped 'to press down on the brow of agriculture what the late W. J. Bryan aptly called a crown of thorns. Because farmers listened glibly to hired, propagandists we have bean treated to the spectacle the last 20 ytars of Republican orators consist- states that should, .have voted Demo- ently scoring victories, in'Mia-Wiptern .'V* .1 ilLC?" _ t ' _ ' Ltit_ iL.,L' 0_..AL. .' • -. It may be that Milo Reno has chosen an ill time for his strike demonstration. But President Roosevelt has other dragons to conquer before his farm program actually gets under way—i and while Mr. Reno might delay, he certainly shouldn't abandon a project that has carried agriculture's message to the country in the only language it seems to understand today. Ask Gift of Wire for Tennis Courts Will Be Used at City Playground at Fair Park The American Legion Auxiliary and the Parent-Teachers association, sponsors of the city playground at Fair Park, Friday issued an appeal for wire which may be used for backstops for two tennis courts.

Cummings told newspapermen that n addition to the McFadden charges, i number of letters had been received asking the inquiry, "most of them voluntary contributions, by people who relieved they had some interest in :he case." "It is fair to say that the policy of .he department is to investigate all cases where the complaint Indicates :hat there is some substance to the allegations," Cummings said.

S. Thomas (Continued on Page Two) (Continued, on page three) Gene Thomas, youthful Houston producer of stage entertainments, arrived in Hope Thursday for a visit with his aunt, Mrs. L. S. Thomas. r Although but 18 years of age, he already has a reputation as a playwright, dramatist, composer, musician, dancer, singer, vaudeville artist, and director of all types of stage shows, Thomas got his start when as a lad of 11 he played in Booth Tarkington's "Penrod". The play itself was the first starring vehicle on any scale that he had ever attempted, and was enthusiastically acclaimed in the various towns around San Antonio, Texas, where it originated. Thomas played the title role. As a child Thomas had a liking for the piano, and played frequently on programs in and around San Antonio. His vaudeville work came about through his acquaintance with Chaz Chase, a Publix circuit entertainer who was on a week's stand at the Texas theater in San Antonio, whom Thomas watched for more than 15 performances straight, he says, before he decided to attempt the difficult act himself. The act could have been more accurately termed "Satisfying an Appetite," he says, as the performer nonchalantly eats such delicious things as hats, waistcoats, matches, cigarettes, flowers, etc. For the first few weeks Thomas was a flop at being a billy- goat, he says, and suffered many an attack of indigestion until the return showing of Chaz Chase, when he prevailed upon the comedian to show him how the act was done. Chase complied, and now, after a number of additions and improvements, "The Ragon Appointed U. S. Judge; 5 Seek His Congress Seat Congressman, 48, Succeeds to Bench Post of Late F. Y.

The socially well-known Mrs. Mitchell figured in a similar transaction in 1929. Mitchell subsequently bought back the stock from Mrs. Mitchell and alleges the sales were made with the intention of evading the tax. U. S.
