The most recent dispatch from London tells how the duke is living under an unofficial but air-tight exile, how the countries whicji he may visif are strictly limted, and how the wife for whoitthe gave up his throne is "not received" by members 01 his own Ta'mily. All of this is perhaps quite necessary, from the standpoint of practical politics. And yet—what tragic personal suffering must it not be costing! Surely the poorest of his ex-subjects can hardly envy this man who surrendered a crown in a foredoomed attempt to find the simple human ^appiness which the crown was denying to him.

Actually, figures from investigations made among the most primitive of peoples indicate that savages themselves not infrequently die of cancer. Among the people of South Africa, one investigator found 291 cases among 13,000 patients and another found 141 cases among 10,000 patients. It must be remembered also that primitive peoples have not overcome the infectious diseases as we have done and that they tend to die earlier of such conditions as pneumonia, malaria, dysentery or hookworm so that cancer seldom is noted in relation to causes of death. The excess eating of meat has been blamed by some people in relationship to the cause of cancer. Among the Filipinos whose diet is mainly one ol vegetables and rice, there are the usual number of deaths from cancer in relationship to the age of those concerned.

They were Little Rock's Travelers, pennant-winners by a healthy margin in the regular playing season, and Atlanta's Crackers, 1936 champs, matched in the ultimate games of the Ehaughnessy playoff system for the right to enter the Dixie series against the Texas League winners. Four wins in a scheduled seven- game series will decide the Atlanta- Little Rock argument, opening here Wednesday for a three night stand. Both teams Ijad an overnight traip jump on the eve of the opener. Little Rock came homeward from New Orleahs, after eliminating the Pelicans in the playoff semi-finals. The Crackers, who put out Memphis last Sunday, had a workout at home before entraining for Little Rock late Tuesday. Durham or Leonard appeared likely to get the call for initial mound duty for Atlanta, but Manager Doc Prothro reserved any announcement of Little Rock's starter, withholding comment also on the admittedly difficult series. Atlanta alone of the Southern Association clubs maintained a favorable won and lost balance with Little Rock during the regular season, winning 14 of their 22 contests. The fans expected either the veteran Kola Sharpe, southpaw "Jinx" Poindexter, or young Emerson Dickman to get the nod from Prothro Wednesday night. Said Manager Eddie Moore as he left Atlanta: "The way the Crackers are going just now, they'll be hard to stop. But by the same token, the Travelers went mighty good in the Pelican series, too. So I guess the outcome will probably be decided by the jreaks." - «•«. - * Cubs Beat Giants in Series' First Only V/* Games Behind in Thrilling 1 Race in National League CHICAGO— (/P) —Gabby Hartnett's bat, a potent weapon in a thrilling 7-to-5 triumph for the desperate Cubs, cut a full game off the New York Giants' margin Tuesday in the National League pennant race in the first of the three-game series which may settle the 1937 contest. Hartnett was the difference between victory and defeat in a baseball drama presented before 34,807 alternately jubilant and despairing fans. He got a triple, a double and a single, and every hit was vital. The result left the Giants with an edge of IVa games. Hartnett's triple to the wall of the new bleachers in center field appeared at the time to be all that was necessary to conquer the league-leaders, but the Giants rallied to tie the score twice. The Cubs made four runs in the first inning. Stan Hack was safe when Dick Bartell muffed his grounder, and went to second when Billy Herman singled to left. Frank Demaree beat out an infeild hit to Mel Ott at third base to load the bases. Hartnett lined one of Harry Gumbart's pitches between Jimmy Riple and Wally Berger and before the latter retrived the ball. three runs scored. Hartnett scored a moment later on Phil Cavarretta's single. Southpaw Larry French, seeking his 15th pitching victory of the season, appeared to have everything under control after escaping serious damage in the first two innings. The Giants nicked him for a run in the second on a single by Johnny McCarthy, and Harry Danning's triple to center, but that was offset in the fifth when Hartnett singled and scored the Cubs' fifth run on Ripper Collins' three-base hit.

Fort Worth Defeats Oklahoma City, 5-4 Panthers Put Over Two Runs in Ninth to Take Series Opener OKLAHOMA CITY, Little Jackie Reid stopped the Oklahoma City Indians here Tuesday night with plenty of help from/ the Tribesmen themselves nnd hurled the Port Worth Cats off to a flying start In the Texas League championship series With a 5 to 4 victory. A game packed with suspense, • the Panthers broke up, a 3 to3 tie with a two-run splurge in the first half of the ninth. Then with one run across and the tying tally in scoring position, Reid clipped an Indian rally one short by striking out Paul Easterling for the final out. The Indians, who committed miscues in the field, let their defense go to pieces in that disastrous last frame. Three Tribal errors were enough to turn the Cat's one ninth inning hit into two runs.

"When I was a kid living near Kansas City, a store keeper gave me an old pistol so I would buy cartridges for it from him. "By 1920 I had collected more than 1,000 rifles, pistols and sabers. They were exhibited in the Oakland, Calif., municipal museum and then sold, except for the army rifles." He now has 400 rifles. Only one is not a service gun. It is a double-bar- reled flint-lock fowling piece made for Napoleon by the great French gunsmith, Boutet. Puller thinks his most interesting rifle is a William A. Jenks breech loading flintJock made in 1839. Only 20 of them ever were made, he says. He gets his guns "anywhere and everywhere." "I found most of them in secondhand furniture stores and pawn shops," he says. His oldest gun is a match-lock rifle, a type used by Captain Miles Standish and his men. It was made in England in 1543. Air-oconditioned cars recently were made available for first-class passengers on the Capital Express, which makes the 200-mile run between Shanghai and Nanking. Approximately 1,074,000 bales of raw cotton were landed at Manchester, England, during the last fiscal year, establishing a new high record for cotton importations into that city. ^ September 22,1QS7 President to Tour (Continued from Page One) ers of the Democratic drive in the Senate which sank the court rejuvenation project, awaits what the president says. It was promptly noted that while the presidential train will go through Nebraska eri route to Cheyenne, no stops for Roosevelt speeches, informal or otherwise, In Nebraska were scheduled. Yet Senator Burke of Nebraska Was a no less bitter and active a Campaigner against the court bill than his party colleagues fn .Wyoinlng and Montana. . , To the large corps of political writers aboard the 'Presidential train, the Cheyenne speech Will loom as a pos- Elbl clue to the prr indent's intentions as to renewing the court fight. Because of the sharply restricted area within which Mr. Roosevelt plans to make public apeparances, sampling of public sentiment for or against ;his broad policies can reflect only a regional reaction. Yet the region is that for which Democratic senators who led the fight on the court bill assumed to speak. Having recently motored through many of the states through which the president will pass on his trip, including Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah and Nevada, one writer doubts that any symptoms of strong public reaction, either way, to the court bill fight will be detecable. There was no purpose in that dash across the continent of sounding public sentiment on Roosevelt policies. Yet the trip was made when Washington news in the wake of the defeat of the court bill was rivaled only by outbreak of Sino-Japanese hostilities for a place in newspaper headlines. . ••»-•-•• Dance School (Continued from Page One) inspect the new studio rooms. A complete course in expression is now being offered to every pupil of the school at no extra cost. Mrs. Ogburn has taught dancing and expression for the past ten years in both private and public schools of Arkansas. She leaves each summer to take additional work in both these subjects. The complete curriculum includes the following: Tap, soft shoe, ballet, toe, acrobatic, Spanish and character dancing as well as French folk songs, dramatics and personality singing. Mrs. Edwin Stewart is pianist and an orchestra is being formed to play for the- entertainments given by the school. Dry sausages may be divided into two groups: cervelats and salamis. Salamis are more highly seasoned than cervelats. There are hard and soft types of both. Man Now Flies His Kites for Living Advertising Pays the Way for St. Louis Professional Flier ATLANTIC ClTYTtt J.-M[/P)-Frank Seyfang began flying kites in a cornfield at Flnlay, Ohio, when he was seven years old. Today he Is 47, and still flies kites—for a living. He was 14 when he launched on his career as a professional kite-flyer, at the St. Louis Exposition in 1904. Since then, he calculates, he has -made and flown more than 10,000 kites of every description from tiny ones o foot long to big 14^-footers that would lift a man into the Sky. There's a good living in kite-flying and Seyfang has the profession to himself. For 40 years he has flown kites nil over the United States and in the Orient, where kite-flying is a daily sport of grown-ups. The revenue comes irom advertising. Seyfang sends kites 4,000 feet into.the air, and dangles from the "string" advertising banners. His first job in St. Louis was to advertise corsets. Constantly experimenting, Seyfang has invented several types of kites, some of which are now commonly flown by boys. There's as much science in making a good kite as in designing an efficient airplane wing, he says, and "no two kites behave s alike, regardless of how much they look alike." He keeps secret the design of his favorite kite, which he says will stay aloft in a four-mile breeze or ride but a 90-mile gale. Seyfang has settled down to routine kite-flying now. He spends hS summers flying kites in Atlantic City to advertise an amusement pier and his winters in Miami Beach touting a hotel. California's first motion picture studio was opened in 1907 at Jjos Angeles. Its first production was "The Count of Monte Cristo," which required 1000 feet of film.
