Slain Wife Was Planning Divorce Mrs. Thomas' Letter to Husband Found in House by Coroner LITTLE ROCK.—While R. B. (Tommy) Thomas, 32, was being arraigned in North Little Rock Mninicapl Court Wednesday on two charges of murder, in connection with the slaying of his wife and Horace F. Steclc, 35, cigar stand proprietor, who Thomas said was his wife's paramour, Dr. Lawson C. Aday discovered a letter indicating Mrs. Thomas planned to leave her husband mid divorce him. The letter was found in a drawer in Mrs. Thomas' bedroom at their home, 154 Sheridan rond, Park Hill. It was addressed to "Tommy," and read: "I hale to have to do this, hut there is a limit to what 1 can take. I have done my host, linve tried to keep everything down and tried lo make it as'.easy as 1 could on you. "You haven't cared a damn about me, only as a servant, and I haven't been appreciated for what I have done as that. So am leaving you for good. | Will spend my 520 for a divorce— what I've been saving it for. Probably will surprise you but even though I seemed to enjoy your un- kindncss and ungratefulness, I hate! you beyond words. You needn't worry about me doing you dirt; I will iromise 1 won't, but if you ever lay j hand on me again I'll go the limit. Sec if you can find some one else to ill my place, ingrate." The letter was unsigned, and there vas no date on it, but Dr. Aday said ic was convinced it was written by Mrs. Thomas, probably before she left lome several days ago. Thomas said ic did not know of such a letter. Thomas, without an attorney, appeared in the North Little Rock court vith deputy sheriffs and waived pre- iminary hearings on charpcs of mur- ler. He was held to the grand jury jy Judge Wills, and returned to the Fulaski county jail to be held, without bond, until the grand jury meets. Mrs. Thomas' complaint to Dr. Aday, i short time before she died, that her itisband frequently mistreated her, was corroborated Wednesday by her 'ather, Cleve R. Berry, rural mail carrier of Conway. "Thomas mistreated my daughter throughout their married life,' 'he said Wednesday in Conway. "She left lim scvcra Himes and the only reason she returned to him was because of the fear that he would do just what he finally did. . He would not permit her to have any friends at all, even among other women, and Ireatcd her cruelly at all limes." He Qualified ' Motorist—"I want a chauffeur who can htink quickly in an emergency."

THREAT OF WAR (Continued from Page One) ment against eGrmany's interference in Austria ad declared the situation extremely serious. Slightly more than a month since Chancellor Hitler of Germany and Mussolini met in what seemed the most cordial almosphcre in Venice, the government-inspired press was Wednesday viewing with great resentment what it termed German interference in Austria, the nation on whose independence the two government leaders had said they agreed. Reports that the German ambassador at Vienna had taken part in the arrangement for safe conduct of the killers aroused particular resentment, although these reports were not verified definitely. Leaves were cancelled, and each unit was told to keep itself in full strength with all of its mechanical war devices in order. The order applied to 75,000 men north of Padua. A. & M. BOARD (Continued from Page One) had resigned when he refused to answer the direct question: "Have these trustees resigned, or have you a resignation signed by them for prcsntalion to Ihe governor?" It also became apparent that should the trustees resign or be removed by Governor Futrel), both J. B. Duncan of Enyland and R. L. Hyatt of Monticello the other trustees, also would offer their resignations. GATHERING CLOUDS (Continued from Page One) cd to run into millions of dollars.

The report, prepared by Ronald B. Craig, assistant, forest economist, showed that in,238.000 acres of land, valued at more than $50,000,000, have reverted to tho seven states. Of this area, 12,272,000 acres were estimated to be forest land. "The effect of such wholesale reversion of forest and agricultural land is patent to anyone," the report slated. "Not only does it render the continued existence of local government precarious, but, it also increases (he lax burden on the land which is not delinquent." Tlie reversion of land to Ihe slates, which the analysis said began "on a large scale in l!)2fi," increased during the depression years lo "phenomenal and alarming proportions," and is "still rising." The acreage known and estimated to he in public title in the latter part of 1933, by stales, was given as follows: Miss Bernier in Lead at Saenger Miss Evans Second, Miss Simpson Third—Only Two Weeks to Go At the end of the fourth week in the Saenger's Hollywood Free Tour Contest there are startling changes in the lineup.
