T. V. Soong, finance minister of the Nanking government, is also expected to resign within a few days; and several other changes in the cabinet arc expected. • •'Kai Shek, 46, was first elected pres. Ident of the Nationalist government in October, 1928, and relected in 1931. Chiang Kai Shek won fame several years ago by leading the Southern Chinese to victory over Chang'Tso- Lin, Manchurian war-lord, who was alleged to have enjoyed* .secret support from both Russia and Japan, Great Military Chief Kai-Shek was the greatest Chinese military leader to ariso-since Dr..Sun, ^X*i.''Sen wJwaled ipo'var from the, anr . cient ,dynasty of Chinese emperors and make the land of the dragon a republic. Both Sun Yat Sen and Kai Shek revealed the influence of European and American civilization, Kai Shek only recently marrying a Chinese girl who had been educated in the United States. Kai Shek was the first public leader since Dr. Sen to draw China into one centralized government. The protest of the civilian groups against his military training, combined with the activity of alleged communists, was believed to have weakened his position within the last year. Although the central government reestablished headquarters in the ancient northern city of Nanking, the more radical elements of the Nationalist party soon formed an opposition group with headquarters at Canton, in the south—and ill-feeling has been continuous bewteen this group and •the dominant party of Kai Shek. The president's resignation has been frequently forecast in the interest of national unity.

The devotional was led by E. E. Austin, Hempstead county superintendent. The lesson for the day was "And I will lift mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help."

R.Atkins Due at Pen Monday, Is Not There at 2:30 His Attorney Says He Will Begin Sentence Before . Night, However SECOND CONVICTION Pleaded Guilty Last October and Again Was Sentenced Although his attorney said William R. Atkins,'convicted .cashier of the defunct .Bank of McCaskill, at Mc- CaskiHihis county, would go to the penitentiary Monday to beging serving a four-year sentence for fraud, he hact not arrived at 2:30 p. m. Monday, the Assebated Press advised The Star. It was regarded as probable, how- over, he would arrive before Monday night, penitentiary officials told the Associated Press. Atkins 1 attorney, George R. Haynie, announced in a statement from Camden last Saturday that his client would go to Little Rock unaccompanied Monday. Atkins was first tried and found guilty by a jury in HempsteacT circuit court at Washington in the''Octo- ber, 1930, term.'He was sentenced at the April term, and the day he went to Little Rock was granted an indefinite furlough by the acting executive, Lieut.-Gov. Lawrence Wilson.

Atkins pleaded guilty to four, was sentenced one year on each, under agreement that if he went to the penitentiary the prosecutor would not press the remaining indictments, i'.„..',.,..'....'..;. ,.,'.,-* Term Shortened Committee Finds It has Dropped From 158 Days to 137 LITTLE ROCK.-(^P)-The depressed condition of the public school system has resulted in the shortening of terms for white children from an average of 158.6 days last year to 137.6 days this year, a sub-committee which studied conditions in "15 typical counties" reported Monday to the State Board of Education. The committee recommended strict budgeting, keeping of uniform and complete records of school districts' financial and administrative condition, and staying within incomes. A general falling off in revenue .vas found largely responsible. Other causes listed were the withdrawal of credit by the banks, and the fact that the school districts had been forced to a cash basis, districts "living above their means," a constant demand for better schools, and the uneven distribution of money to districts. Discussing the falling off ir^ the number of school days, the committee said its fgiures "when applied to the entire state as a whole are very significant," "Of the districts in the 15 counties for which the report is made, 316, or 72 per cent voted the maxmium limit of 18 mills school tax. Eighty-one districts voted 12 to 17 mills; 28 voted five or less mills. "In the elementary schools, there has been a decrease in the number of teachers from 1,143 last year to 1,066 this year, which is a decrease of about 7 per cent.

Admits Killing Man am Woman With Minstrel •Show in Texas HOUSTON, Miss.— (ff>)— Durell Ken dall, .22, confessed \o Chickasaw coun ty officers Sunday that he killed tw< members of a small minstrel show'i company near New Caney, Texas, De. cember 4. Kendall, motion picutre operator o the show, said he killed L. H. Brown lee and Martha Smith in self defense when they would! not permit him t leave the show to come home. " Kendall was arrested at his father's home near Wo6dland, Miss., Saturday afternoon. He first told Sheriff O. E Shell that a Mexican boy killed thi pair, but later he denied that and refused 1 to talk. H. B. Abernathy, county attorney said Kendall told him Sunday Brownlee threatened to kill him if he triet to quit the show and took his money so he couldn't leave"Early the morning of December 4,' Abernathy said Kendall told him, awoke and saw Brownlee standing by my bed with a tent stake in his hand "I jumped up and we scuffled Brownlee knocked me across my col and I got up and took the tent stake away from him and his him over the head. Then the woman rushed me with a butcher knife and I hit her. "I knew Brownlee was dead, but ! didn't wait to see about the woman I got my money from the cash box and left in a truck belonging to Brownlee." Mr. Abernathy said Kendall denied taking all of the money in the cash box, but that he came home with "several hundred dollars' and bought a second hand car. Kendall was traced to his father's home from Goodrich; Texas, where the truck broke down. He forwarded his bag from there to his home in the name of Ricks Hill, and made the trip on the train. When Sheriff Shell and Deputy Sheriff J. W. Bhenault went to his home to arrest him Saturday they said he seemed surprised but did not make resistance. Bhenault said he had known Kendall for about 15 years and that he had q "mighty g6od reputati&n" in his home 'commuruty and seemed like "a nice young fellow. • He had been away from home about two months and had been with the show about two weeks. Shortly after the killing a special session of the grand jury was called at New Caney and Kendall was indicted for murder. Discovery of the two bodies was made several days after the killing. A parVot, half starved, was found in the tent with the bodies. Hans Nagel, keeper of the Houston (Tex.) zoo, has taken particular care of the bird. He said it was possible "that if the murderer is brought before the parrot and the parrot is excited to such a state as he was when the killings took place, it will repeat tome of the exact words and perhaps tome of the names used in the Other , * •*/*"'-,,*'#'• Twice iiji the' lastllf '; Arkansas has beeti " clone' disasters. , „.
