Directors PROVED JfTcAMDEN Increase in City Pay Rolls Brought Revival of Abandoned Farms Agriculture without adequate markets Is unprofitable, but the small city that has good agriculture around it nntl Industrial pay rolls to provide a suitable market, has the best-balanced community life on earth, Luther Ellison, secretary of the. Camdcn and South Arkansas Chambers of Commerce. told Hope Kiwanis club and the board of directors of Hope Cham. bcr of Commerce at the Capital hotel Friday night. Mr. Ellison had been invited to Hope by the Kiwanians, who also had arranged for the attendance of the directors of the local chamber of commerce. The Camdcn man, noted for his in- spiriHional speeches, confined his address Friday night to a recital of the facts behind Camdon's industrial expansion the last seven or eight years. Ten years ago he said*, Ouachita coun- ' ty showed 600 forms abandoned since 1910. Cnmtlcn. an old river trading town hurt by the coming of the railroads, wan slowly drying up — and with the decline of the Camdcn markets, Ouachita agriculture also went odown. Eight years ago the younger leaders of Camdcn business knew something had to be. done about it, Mr^ Ellison wKnt-iiiuwEfhcrit for the interesting of industry in their city, and even invested much local capital in it Fdrm Follows Markets . Sixteen new industrial pay-rolls oen addedj'io CRmd«rt,tivAi»-« A Picture of—Well, Guess! 'ccht"years, with ' But one 'failure, Mr. Ellison pointed out. With the achievement of this program and the re-establishing of Camdcn's markets. Qua. chlta agriculture . also boomed, and half the fnrms that had been abandoned In the previous 10 years were again placed under cultivation, the speaker said. He brought to Hope this idea: That industrial development will have to depend more upon home people, homo capital, home enterprise, rather than any foreign-owned development. "'The, past history of Arkansas, tells the story," Mi-. Ellison said. "Great lumber companies launched their enterpriser throughout our state, but with no thought of becoming a permanent purl of our commonwealth. Great libraries, office buildings and other memorials established in their home cities testify to the wealth that foreign capitalists found In Arkansas and took a way— a wealth and an opportunity which our own people overlook. A Job For Us 1 "We are overlooking similar opportunities today— and no one will develop them for the good of our own state unless we wish to do the job ourselves." The meeting was presided over by Lyle M. Webb, president of Kiwanis. John P. Cox, made the speech of welcome to the chamber board of directors. Response was by Ale*, H. Washburn, president of the chamber, who introduced the board members and the new chamber secretary Joe R. Floyd, and later made the Introductory speech presenting M. Ellison. Miss Harriet Story entertained at the piano during the meal, and Leffel Gentry led Kiwanis in community singing. Following the Kiwanis meeting, the chamber board members held a business sessiqn.

BOSTON—Elizabeth Barrett Cook, 20, Boston heiress - whose .'strange death at sea has .starred Investigations b& two governments, was the victim or an egotistic mania, in the; opinion of her uncle, Dr. Francis. E. 1 Carroll. The girl died on the freighter Chinese Prince, homeward bound after receiving in Naples a message falsely announcing the death in Boston of her fiance, St. George Tucker Anold. Passengers who sailed with :hcrIon the crossing to Europe, in .December, point to a similar hoax' message received by the young woman off Lisbon. Later Miss Cook tried to kill herself by jumping overboard,' and it was disclosed that she had sent the false communication to herself. These friends insist that In the Chinese Prince episode she perpetrated" a similar prank and'in the suicide gesture which followed, she unintentionally took an overdose of sedatives to case her supposed "nerves" and died, "The Lisbon incident: related by these former fellow passengers is like Elizabeth and yet unlike her," said Dr. Caroll today, "She was an exotic. If the Lisbon account is correct, my niece undoubtedly had an egotistic mania. Or perhaps I shovUd say she was of the hys- teroid type—the kind of person who likes to put herself in the limelight. "Apparently she wanted the sensation of suicide, She did not want to die—she merely wanted to enact a movie of dying. This maudlin fancy, apparently caused her death, for in staking her unreal situation, it seems she took too much of whatever sedative she used. In putting on her thriller, she went too far. "There was no doctor aboard and she was treated by laymen. Of course, I have not seen her for six years, so have no first hand information of her recent condition. But apparently she was living too much on one side —and had more money than was good for her." Although Dr. Carroll regarded this crplanatiou of the girl's end as highly plausible from a psychological point of view, other relatives refused to ac* cept the solution. "Such an explanation is absurd. I don't beliove it at all," explained Mrs. Albert E. Caroll, an aunt, in Brooklin. Food for thought isn't always easy to digest.

Act 63 Assailed By County Judge Makes Possible "Raids" by Promoters, Says Mr. Sewell of Miller TEXARKANA, Ark,—(^-Constitutionality of Act 63, which he charges has saddled the $90,000 Forest Park paving project indebtedness on Miller county, will be attacked in the courts and in the next legislative session, County Judge J. J. Sewell said Friday. An iujunction suit'prohibiting further deductions from Miller county's road turnback will be filed against State Treasurer Roy V. Leonard, he said. "Act 63 leaves the way open for any private promoter to launch a realty improvement project regardless of the distance from main thoroughfares, and allows him to put over the promotion at the expense of public credit," the county judge charged. Sewell declared Miller county has been outraged by being forced to assume, a large portion of the cost of Forest Park paving, which hp branded as practically worthless. He said thj} project was inflated greatly and that the county is forced to pay for the inflation. Curiously, Miller county's loss is Sevier county's gain for from 125,000 to $30,000 in Forest Park bonds were substituted for the corresponding amount of original Sevier county courthouse bonds by M. W. Elkins 8f Co., Little Rock investment brokers, and a, proportionate amount of what £ paid out by Miller county for the retirement of Forest Park bonds will go to Sevier county. So far, $4,100 had been withheld from Miller county's road turnback to be. applied on Forest Park bonds. Former Arkansas U. Dean Will Wed Today FAYETTEVILLB, Ark. -(^)- Dr. George W.

He said that though Garner voted against the Eighteenth amendment and the Volstead act, he voted for "the notorious flve-and-ten" jaw. "We can realize why the father of the Eighteenth amendment, Senator Sheppard, and the step-father, William G. McAdoo, came out for 1m," Schafer said. "My fiend will find that the man I nominated will get every vote in the gentleman's district except one, bc- cautjc every Progressive he represents is going to vote for hjm," Blanton replied. Schafer retorted that Garner, "who has been condemning delay in reorganization of the executive departments also voted for 124,000,000 to be given the executive, without restriction, for the purpose of dry law enforcement." "I want to call the attention of the country to this," Blanton said, "that William Randolph Hearst, a notorious wet, endorses the man I nominated and this morning one of the great drys in the United States, William G. Me* Adoo., endorsed him. So you sec he has the endorsement of the wets and the drys.
