The Hope All-Star football team was defeated by the Prescott All-Stars at the Hope High football field Friday night in a game played for the benefit of the American Legion. Both teams were pretty evenly matched. • On the Hope team outstanding players were Teddy Jones i former Ouachita player and assistant coach of the high school team here, who played quarterback and did a superb job of it, circling the ends, kicking and passing for nearly all of Hope's gains. Coach Wilkin, playing end, played a good game. Waller, Cargile, Cook, Jimmie Jones and Dale Jones played good games in the Hope backfield and Hope's line was strong with two schooleys, Bill and Carroll on ope side and Wise and O'Neal on the other. Hope's touchdoy/n came in the last quarter as a result of' a pass from Jones to Waller, and the extra point was gained on another pass from Jones to For ter field. Hope came near to scoring in the second quarter when after a sustained drive down the field the half ended with them in possession of the ball on Prescott's 20-yard line. Prescott made most of their gains on end runs and off-tackle slants with 'Goober" Buchanan carrying the ball] most of the time. Dalrymple, at end, played a wonderful game, charging in so fast that he seemed a part of Hope's backfield. The first frescott score came in the second quarter when Fomby, Prescott back intercepted a Hope pass on the Hope 30- (Conlinueil on Paae Three) Owes Her Life to Heroic Young Son Mrs. William Disheroon, Hot Springs, Rescued From Burning Home HOT SPRINGS — Mrs. William Disheroon owes her life to the heroism and unusual strength of her. eight- year-old son, Billy, who carried his mother from their home, 627 Mt.

Long two years ago used the National Guard to break up gambling in the csinos aof St. Bernard and Jefferson parishes, Attorney General Percy Saint Friday stepped in and worned the lobal district attorneys that he would halt it with the constitution. L. H. Perez, distric tattorney of St. Bernard parish, replied by summoning the parish grand jury for a special meeting tomorrow and invited Saint to send witnesses. District Attorney John Floury of Jefferson parish, held a conference with the Jefferson grand 1 jury and word was passed from the fashionable night clubs and other big resorts in the New Orleans area that gambling rooms would be closed Friday night but the night show would go on. Saint charged that open gambling was being carried on in the parishes and threatened to act against the officials if the state anti-gambling law was not enforced and violators prosecuted. He gave the parishes until midnight Friday night to halt gambling. In the military riads, Governor Long's troops took the big gambling houses by surprise, had women attendants search women suspected of hiding the money in their clothing, burned the gen-bun's paraphernalia ^nd turned money seized into the state treasury. » , „ -. a let ier s»id to have been received by W E. Angel, merchant at Bruno, Marion county, purporting to have been sent by A. T. Hudspeth, missing'Harrison banker, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, is scouted by Prosecuting Attorney Jack Holt and D. D.'Dunkin, chairman of a Depositors Association here. According to a report to Mr. Dunkin by residents of Bruno, the letter was signed "R. H." rather than with the correct initial^ of the absconding banker, and instead of taking precautions against tracing him the writer left the impression that he felt secure in the fact that he was ase far away as the Argentine capital. The letter is said to contain a cable address to be used by Mr. Angel in cpmmunicating with the writer. Neither Mr. Dunkin nor the prosecuting attorney has seen the letter and have not had an opportunity to check stamps and postmarks to de- tremine if the letter really was mailed from th'e South American city. The letter, i twas reported to Mr, Dunkin, urged Mr. Angel to "take care" of his daughter, and added that it "would be worth $350,000",' to him. Hudspeth's daughter, Elaine, aged 16, who left Harrison the day before her father 'led, returned to Arkansas about six weeks ago 'and iwas married to Truman Shaddox of garrison. They now reside in Harrison. The letter was said to indicate further that W. A. iudspeth, son of the chain bank head, also sought as a fugitive, was with his 'ather, but made no mention of Mrs. ludspeth or the two-year-old son of W. A. Hudspeth, who also are missing. A repprt current here for several days that Mrs. Hudspeth had returned to Harr^on! apparently is without foundation, and relatives of the Hudspeth's pmphatically deny the rumor. Mr. Dunkin said that because of the inconsistencies in the reported letter, he is inclined to place it in the same category as several other reports which have proved groundless. Two "tips" were that Hudsppth and other members of his family were in New York. Another was that he had been seen in Louisiana headed toward Arkansas. In this case the description of the car Hudspeth was supposed to have been driving was given. Still other reports, none of which proved of any value, have said Hudspeth was in Seattle or other places in the West. Both Mr, Dunkin and Mr. Holt said that they expect to investigate the purported Buenos Aires letter, but that they believe it either is the work of a crank or a cleverly worked out scheme to throw officers farther off the trail.
