The colleges arc Ouachita, of Arkadclphia; Central College .for girls, at Conway, and Mountain Home College at Mountain Home. The State Convention, will meeitfor a three-day session Tuesday at Batesville. Although it is reported that • large delegation of Arkadelphia -residents will attend the convention; no definite plans to combat the anticipatedXruc- ommehdation have been made.

Legion Auxiliary To Hold Button Sale Funds to Be Used in Child Welfare Work of the State majority of the Board 'of Trustees of Ouachita .Collefie, strongest in the Baptist educational system in Arkansas, favor removal, Little Rock , has been mentioned most frequently as the possible new location. Removal of the colleges, and especially Ouachita from Arkade'lphia, is favored by the commission, it is reported, because of the economic stress and the competition here of a state- supported college offering freo tuition. With an enrollment equal to that of the present, Ouachita would require an endowment of $1,000,000 to opcratn without going into debt, It was said. The endowment now is about $500,000. Residents of Arkadelphia apparently are not exercised about the possibility of Ouachita being moved, recognizing the sincerity of efforts of church leaders to solve the financial problems confronting the denomination's educational program. However, it is reported that Arkadelphia Baptists will oppose removal of the college by undertaking to show that advantages are afforded the institution here which would not be available elsewhere. In 1914 Ouachita faced a deficit of $60,000, and when creditors threatened to foreclose and to close the institution, Arkadelphia raised about $50,000 cash to save the college. An agreement was made at that time, it is reported, that Ouachita would be located permanently at Arkadelphia. • It has been pointe dout that if the college should be removed, Arkadelphia might ask the convention to reimburse the city for the $50,000 contributed in 1914. ' , . While it is recognized that there is force to the argument for removal to a larger, central point, such as Little Rock, it will be shown that Little Rock, with its Junior College, also would provide competition. It has been said that location in alarger city probably would cause an increase in both revenue and attendance. The falling off of attendance at Ouachita in recent years has caused a deficit, but it is pointed out that there has been an increase of 30 per cent in attendance this year.

Also, from Fulton to the Cross Roads Store all bad places have been put in fair condition. I can not say about the rest of the roads but for my part' he has made a wonderful improvement over the 1930 roads. Respectfully, C. H. Wilson. Nov. 13, 1931 Fulton, Ark. Editor's Note: Mr. Wilson's letter is appreciated. Any reader who takes the time to write to his newspaper regarding a matter of public importance, is doubly appreciated by the editor. Mr. Wilson knows the comparative condition of the local roads in his neighborhood as only a man can who lives there from one year to the next. We wish more readers of The Star's two thousand five hundred families could give us equally good facts. Our editorial policy has been to attack the county judges, both 'as a state-wide organization and as individual office-holders, for lobbying nn increased gasoline tax through the 19J1 legislation and for paying themselves a greatly increased salary in a year when every man whether in fho city or on the farm, is getting less. 22,840 Bales Are Ginned in County Only 11,278 Bales on the Same Date Last Year, U.

Cotton Laws For Southeast Opposed Carolina - Governor Urges National Conference; Virginia Indifferent CHARLOTTE, N. C.—(/P)— Governors of the two Carolines, Virginia and Georgi asought a remedy for the ills of gariculture in their section at a conference here Thursday wjith _agricultural leaders of the four'Hitaies. " Divergent views, on the question -of, mandatory cotton acreage reduction by the Southern states came from Gov. O. Max Gardner of North Carolina and Gov. Irba C. Blackwood of ' South Carolina in the only public addresses of the conference. Gardner suggested that President Hoover call ah international conference on cotton acreage reduction and warned that the South "might cut its throat" by reducing its acreage while the rest of the cotton-growing world increased. Governor Blackwood said he believed no great harm would come to the South by loss of part of the world cotton market. He said cotton had impoverished the South. "Nowhere else will you find a people of such ability and genius so poor." Governor Gardner expressed! a hope that President Hoover would notify the governors conference to be held at Jackson, Miss., November 22 that the federal government would call a national agricultural conference at Washington. Gov. Richard B. Russell, Georgia, and Gov. John G. Pollard, Virginia, did not address the meeting. Governor Gardner sai dthat farmers of the four states voluntarily would reduce drastically their acreage planted to tobacco, cotton, peanuts and potatoes in 1932 because of low prices paid for the crops this year. He promised that North Carolina farmers voluntarily would reduce their cotton acreage by 400,000 acres in 1932. Governor Pollard said the agricultural situation in Virginia was not so serious as in other states. Governor Blackwood, whose state outlawed the planting of cotton in 1932, reiterated that he believed legislation compelling a smaller cotton crop next year would aid the South. He called the states that have passed legislation to reduce cotton acreage by name and said: > x "Having committed ourselves to this program we must carry on. We cannot take our hand from the plow and turn back." Wellborn Station Robbed Third Time, Bandit Gets $55 Lone Robber Stages -Raid , at 6 o'Clock Friday Morning OWNER IS SLUGGED Wellborn Knocked Down t When He Resists Intruder W.

Mr. Wellborn reported to Hope city police that he had just opened the station 'for business, and came out of a back room to find a young man, about 25, in the office with a revolver. 1* The proprietor put up a fight, but the robber knocked him out with three blows from- his revolver-butt, and then rifled the office of its cash. Mr. Wellborn described the man as being about 5 foot 8 or 10 inches, weighing about 160 pounds, and wearing blue overalls.-' He had dress shoes, however, which led police to beielve that he might have, been, a professional hijacker who had pulled on overalls over his street clothes. The man was wearing a cap. 'Mr. Wellborn's station -was robbed twice within the last year. The first time, a bandit held up the proprietor and took the station's . cash receipts away in a cigar box.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — (IP) — Tennessee's General Assembly will meet at noon Monday in an effort to work out in special session the perplexing financial problems that it failed to solve during the. six months regular term. Gov. Henry H. Horton said that he would issue the legislative call not later than Saturday, the session to begin Monday. The constitution limits an extra session to 20 days. Political observers 'believed the principal remedial plan would be to provide sufficient money to tide' the state over until the next regular session in 1933. At the regular session the leg- slature failed to provide a substitute for the property tax, repeal of which at,the beginning of this year deprived the state of approximately $3,500,000 in annual revenue. Also appropriations were made without providing them. As a result of the state's tangled financial affairs, schools have closed in some counties and terms have been reduced in others. The six normal school faculities are teaching without salary other than that provided locally, and hundreds of state employes suffered a palyess payday, November 1. Comptroller Roy Wallace holds $3,500,000 in unpaid state warrants and the Department of Finance and Taxation estimates that general fund receipts during the present biennium will fall $12,068,003.50 short of equaling expenditures. This week the state advertised for bids on a $5,000,000 bond issue to retire an issue falling due December 1, but there were no bids.
