Texas Politician Dies Early Friday Harry M. Wurzback, Congressman, Succumbs After Operation SAN ANTONIO, Texas.-W)—Representative Harry M. Wurzback, republican, died in a hospital early Friday morning as a result of a complications following an operation for ap- pendieitis. He was the only republican member in congress from Texas and his home was in Seguin. He represented the Fourteenth Con- Quorum Court to Meet Monday For Levying Session No Movement for County Agent Program in Sight This Year AGENTS ELSEWHERE Union County Expected to iSave Agent Work— Pulaski Certain The annual meeting of the Hempstead Quorum Court will be held next Monday, November 9, in the courthouse at Washington, with County Judge L. F. Higgason presiding. For the first lime in many years it appears unlikely that an organized attempt will be made to reinstate the county agent work, which was discontinued by the county government in 1928, carried on by the townsmen and farmers of the county for two years longer, and then dropped last year. ' Lynn Smith Gone Lynn Smith, the former Hempstead county agent, who ranked "No. 1 in the state, went to El Dorado from Hope, and is now employed as the Union county agent. Although Union county is in financial difficulties owing to serial warrants coming due for its $700,000 courthouse, late reports indicated that tain its agents. In Pulaski county, where extravagance and corruption resulted in depleting the county's revenues and driving Judge Sibeck from office, his successor, Judge Ross Lawhon has announced that the county agent •work will be continued for 1932. Pulaski Judge Favorable "I consider the work of our farm 8Od home, demonstration agents the most important department of- Pulaski county's government," Judge Lawhon said. "There is, naturally, undei present conditions a move to cut ou county expenditures. More than a month ago I mailed questionnaires to farmers in this county for an expression from them on extension work. Since then I have been flooded with answers in the mails and personal visits. Ninety-nine per cent of these responses hnve been vigorous endorsements of our county extension program, with the one common expression, 'We cannot afford to abon- don this educational program at this time.' "I am even recommending that a livestock specialist be added to this department, in order that we may further this phase of fanning as a solution to the problem created by our legislated cotton acreage reduction." Health Nurse, Issue The Hempstead Quorum Court is expected to be asked for an appropriation for a county health nurse, but action on this appropriation is regarded as uncertain. Miss Pauline Mitchell, expert nurse, was brought into the county last year and maintained for the last twelve months on federal funds, with the expectation that the county would help support her if this program of medical work is to be continued beyond the trial period.

Mobley of El Dorado Dies Eight Hours After Auto Accident EL DORADO—Marion F. Mobley, aged 25, meter superintendent of the Public Utilities Corporation here, died Thursday from injuries received in an automobile accident 15 miles west of El Dorado on the Magnolia highway Wednesday night. D. C. Pearson, Longvicw, Tex., truck driver, surrendered to Union county officers after the accident, but no charges have been filed against him. Mr. Mobley had been on a three- day tour of inspection in the southwestern part of the state and was ret- turning to his home in a small truck. Pearson':; auto is said to have struck the rear cf the truck, hurling it from the highway into a ditch. Pearson was uninjured, but Mobley suffered a fractured skull, a broken ariv and other injuries. Mobley was taken to the Warner Brown hospital in an unconscious condition anc died eight hours later. A native of Hope, Mr. Mobley hac been in the employ of the Arkansas Natural Gas Company and the Public Utilities for the past nine years. He had lived in El Dorado three Dr. Charles Hillman Brough, er governor, passed through Hope Friday en route to his Little Rock riomo from Stamps, where he addressed the Stamps Rotary and their 40 guests engaged in the coming Red Cross drive, beginning November 11, Armistice Day. < While in Stamps Dr. Brough spoke at the Stamps High School on the theme of "The History of Business Depressions and their Correctives." In both addresses the World war chief executive of Arkansas sounded an optimistic note as to the future of America, saying that the demand curve had pointed steadily upward for the past 60 days and with the bumper crops of every conceivable variety and steadily advancing prices for agricultural prices, we would soon reach normalcy, or the pro-World war basis. He predicted that the Democratic party would elect the next president, following a brilliant victory in the organization of the House of Representatives by the election of John N. Garner, of Texas, as speaker; that the Hawley-Smoot tariff bill would be revised at the December session of Congress, thus enlarging the world's markets for the sale of American goods; that an embargo would probably he placed on goods produced by the slave labor of the Soviet Republic; that mass consumption would speedily match mass production in the United States; and that the state of fear and business paralysis characteristic of industry for the past thirty months would rapidly disappear. He urged a new faith in (lie resources and possibilities of Arkansas and a liberal response to the Red Cross Roll Call this year as constituting "the very best advertisement that Arkansas could receive in the eyes of the world, attesting our appreciation of the fine constructive work done last year by the world's greatest humanitarian organization, and at the same time serving notice that Arkansas had staged a glorious come-back." Dr. Brough stated that 38,500 were enrolled last year in Arkansas in the Red Cross, and that those in chage 01 the call this year hoped to reach 75,000. "We should translate our Thanksgiving in 1931 into the spirit of Thanksgiving and join the Red Cross would be the most effective way in which this could be done," said Dr. Brough.

Steve Carrigan Wins First Round in Hempstead Chancery Court The city council, mayor, recorder and treasurer were enjoined from refunding $3.000 in bank loans against the Hope cheese factory, on a temporary injunction granted Friday by Chancellor C. E. Johnson, in Hempstead chancery court at Washington. The injunction was : granted on a petition entered by Steve Carrigan, taxpayer, who was represented by his law partner, L. F. Monroe. Mr. Carrigan's suit was entered last Wednesday morning, immediately after the city council, at its Tuesday night meeting, had oyer-ribben the mayor's veto by a vote of 6 to 2. The prayer for an injunction set forth that the contemplated refunding of bank loans against the machinery of the cheese factory was an illegal use of public tax funds, under the constitutional power of city governments in Arkansas. B Chancellor Johnson, in granting the temporary injunction, ruled that the proposed action by the city counci' violated Article 12 Section of the Arkansas constitution, which says: "No county,' city, town or other municipal corporation, shall become stockholder in any company, association or corporation; or obtain or appropriate money for, or loan its credi' to any corporation, association, in stitution or individual." A hearing ..to make the injunction permanent, is'expected, to be hearc FaWay, Dw^sa^t 11, when Chancello Johnson wlll$ again (hold 1 chancery court at Washington.*.

TEX A RK "AN A House, 4V of Fulton, was'' held to await action of- the Bowie county grand jury on a charge of' failing to stop her automobile after running over an 18-year-old girl, two young boys and a negro woman by Justice of the Peace J. W. Hillman Thursday morning. Bond was set at $500. Mrs. House had been held in jail since her arrest Wednesday morning when her efforts to negotiate a $2000 appearance bond failed. Miss Eloise Hoope, 18, of Kenwood Park, New Boston highway, was the state's principal witness in the preliminary hearing. She was carried into the courtroom by her father and friends and was allowed to testify irom her seat in the courtroom because of injuries to her ankle and hip which made it difficult for her to walk. . The young woman said she was walking behind her brother, Woodrow Hooper, 13; Lein Wiley, 12, and Thomas Earl Wiley, 10, on the south side of the highway when the automobile, which was headed west, struck them from behind and continued on without halting. She said they were walking on the dirt shoulder of the highway when the machine struck them. Miss Hooper said she did not see a wagon in the highway near where they were run down, which Mrs. House has claimed caused her to run over the negro woman. On cross examination by Defense Attorney J. A. R. Moseley, Jr., Miss Hooper admitted that she did not remember the condition of traffic on the highway at the time of the accident. "You didn't notice traffic because you were not walking on the pavement and saw no necessity of watching the movements of the automobiles?" countered County Attorney L. C. Boswell. Miss Hooper nodded in reply to the prosecutor's question. R. N. Rivers, proprietor of a store across the highway from where the accident occurred, said he was standing on the porch of his establishment when the accident happened. He said he did not see a wagon at the point where Mrs. House has claimed it stood. "A bus had stopped in front of my place," Rivers said. "The driver, was standing just outside the bus door figuring with a pencil the fares of three passengers wishing to go to Annona. I was watching them. "Suddenly I heard the screams of children across the road. Looking, it seemed like I saw a half dozen kids pile up in front of an automobile. The girl was on top at first but the car dragged her several feet and I thought the wheels went over her body. "I became excited and began looking for my children. I thought at first one of them might have been hurt but by the lime I found them all safe several people had run to the assistance of those hurt, and 1 called an ambulance." W. F. Schroeder testified he followed the automobile which struck the children for severe! miles and obtained its license number. It was this information which led officers to the home of Sdrs.
