Augusl 28 of Sliirley White, new district field mannAcr for the Farm Debt Adjustment Organization in South Arkansas. White's function is to bring debtor and creditor together to negotiate fair debt settlements, and thus to prevent threatened foreclosures and bankruptcies from injuring thc economic picture of the county. "Thc work of thc county committee i.s to rehabilitate thc farmer who is over-burdened with debt," While explained, This would be accomplished by adjusting his debts through compositions, scale downs, extensions, or other means to a position if possible where he may secure a loan. Thus may expensive litigation, which loo often proves unsatisfactory to both parlies, be avoided. Compromise Debt "Thc government believes," White declared, "that through the efforts of an unbiased party, working for thc interests of both debtor nnd creditor each may secure a more satisfactory settlement than were thc farmer debtor to exercise his rights under the Frazier-Lcmko Bill, which allows the fanner who can not pay his debts to live on his farm for six years under agreement by paying on actual or appraised value 1% yearly interest. Thc second and third years he may pay 2'/i!% on principal. Ihe forth and fifth years. 5% on principal and the balance any time during the sixth year. He also must pay thc taxes. If he wishes he can be adjudged a bankrupt and pay only a reasonable rental for thc next five years under thc jurisdiction of County Conciliation Commissioner, who now has been appointed. function of thc committee was explained by President Roosevelt as fololw.s: "I hiive sufficient failh in tin- hone-sly <>f Ihe overwhelming majority of |.hi! farmers lo believe Unit I hey will nol evade, Hit! payments of jii.sl dcl.il.s.

The committee is working for Ihe benefit of both debtor and creditors, and i.s iillcmpting lo save the creditor from bankrupl losses quite as much as il is attempting to help the farmer, While declared.

All expenses to the farmer are covered by the $10.111) which is paid wheji the first petition i.s filed. The Conciliation Commissioner summons the debtors and creditors for a hearing with Ihe committee the purpose which is lo arrive at a voluntary agreement with n majority in amount and num- liec of his creditors. Here is a point lo understand clearly: Up to this point the farmer has nol, "(akcn bankruptcy." Now assuming lhal a farmer has failed lo obtain a satisfactory ngree- mcnt with his creditors, if he wishij.- he may amend hi.s original petition and ask lo he adjudged a bankrupt.

County on Highway 07 and thc Arkadelphia-Hot Springs Highway: Due lo Ihe fact that we believe a human life is more valuable Hum Ihul of a cow's and due lo Ihe fact that cattle on the highways at night arc n serious menace to human safely, we have resolved to shoot nil cows found on the paved highways of this county after dark, after September 1 (Signed) VIGILANTES. While Editor McCorklc docs not "take seriously the Ihrcat by thc vig- ilants" il Is a threat commonly heard from tourists and local citizens in daily conversation. And il i.s utterly wrong and indefensible. Bad as it i.s for thc farmer lo lurn his livestock loose on thc highway to menace thc lives of innocent travelers, it is worse for a citizen lo contemplate shooting down equally innocent domestic animals.

J Thc same car, a 1933 Plymouth There isn't much Clark counly can do for Ihe present—but here in Hempstcad county we have a stock law which requires livestock owners lo keep their herds behind fences. Here's The Star's idea of what to do about calllc on No. 67 between Hope and Fullon: Make up a civic fund and hire men to go down thc highway every night, pick up the strays, and fetch them back to Hope. When thc owners conic here to reclaim them they can pay thc expense or stand prosecution under the county stock law. Thai's the most reasonable process —and thc most effective. XXX Thi.s nrgumcnl over livcslock on Ihe •highway involves our tourist trade. How important is lhat Iradc? An oil company bulletin answers it like this: The tolals of money spent by 293 persons on trips throughout thc entire United Slates were: Hotels $1,396.55. Tourist camps and homes $635.21. Meals $2,268.04. Gasoline $3,019.85; oil $447.90. Incidentals (bridge lolls, laundry, greasing cars, car storage, souvenirs, clc.) $2,051.67. Wilh Ihe licenses of 48 states flowing through Hope on the great Broadway of America (No. 07) we have seriously to consider the safely of the people who bring us this multifold business. It is a business which pays a large part of our gasoline tax, probably mosl of our bridge lolls, contributes something to almost every store in lown— and is worth dollars and cents to nearly every farmer along the trunk highway. As a business proposition, therefore, we should clear at least, this one trunk highway of the livestock which a few unthinking or .stubborn landowners dump onto it every nighl.

Claims Car Mr. Jones, who resides in Corpus Christi, Texas, lyd was in Pine Bluff on business when kidnaped, claimed Ihe automobile and told Officer Burke of his harrowing experience wilh Hie Ihrcc convicts. Ownership of the automobile was definitely established on Wednesday when Officer Burke traced the tag Ihrough the Texas highway department to Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones said the description of thc three men tallied wilh Smith, Siittcrficld nnd Yatcs. None of thc convicts have been cap- lured. Smith, 'sent to "the Arkansas prison from another county on a statulalory charge, was believed to have been in Hope election day. Smith's father lives south of Hope and il wa.s thought thai he came here lo visit him. Negro Kidnaped Police believe that Smith and one of his companions made a second visit here this week, kidnaping James Moore, negro employe of the Arkansas Machine Specialty company, and a negro woman companion. Thc negro told police that he was cnroulc lo Hope Sunday night from Columbus when a lire went flat on his car about two miles west of town. He said two men walked up out of the darkness and ordered him and his woman companion to climb inlo Ihe car. One of Ihe men drove to the Nashvillc-DcQueen road where the negroes were put oul and tied to Irecs. Moore came to Hope late Monday and reported to officers.

WASHINGTON-(/P)— Another government loan on cotlon to help thc Southern farmer — 12 cenls a pound this time — was authorized Tuesday by President Roosevelt. He requested the Reconstruction Finance Corporation to make funds available to the Commodity . Credit Corporation that will enable it to increase its lending from 10 to 12 cents a pound on cotton classin low huddling or better, which is and has been continuously in thc possession of thc producer." Tills means that any cotton grower, if he docs not wish to Bell his staple at this time, may borrow 12 cents! a pound from federal agencies on it.^"^ Detailed regulations were nott announced, although officials said that in all essentials they would follow those governing thc 10-ccnts-a-pound loan last year. If the -same regulations apply, tht government takes the risk should cotton go below 12 cents and stay there. Should thc price climb during the season, the grower may repay thc loan, sell his bales and pocket the profit. Cotton is selling for more than 13 cenlg a pound at present but several faclors have caused uneasiness. One has been thc projected general strikp in the textile industry. This would stop mill buying, presumably, and have a bearish influence, Olhcr things which caused the decision for. government advances this year included a drop in consumption compared with past years; negotiations for an Indo-Japanese cottdrt' agreement— Japan being one of tills country's best customers— and delay in getting cotton cxemplion ccrlifi- ealcs lo Ihe growers. The certificates represent the bales of cotlon each farmer may market under (he Bankhead bill's allotments. Officials said thc loan Tuesday wa.s not. a price-fixing scheme, allhough Ihe effect would be lo stop farm sales of cotlon, if the price fell below 12 cents. Thoy Green Declares He Will Attempt to Avert Strike But If It Comes, A. F. of L. Will Back Textile Union G A RMENTJNCREASE Hours Cut From 40 to 36 Per Week, With Wages Remaining Same WASHINGTON. - (If) - President William Green, of thc American Fedoration of Labor, said Wednesday that every effort would be made to avert a general textile strike. While waiting for a conference with the strike committee Green told reporters that the federation would give the textile union its whole support if a strike developed. But he added Dial he would seek to settle the controversy without resorting to a strike. Green said he believed the action of the administration in reducing hours in the cotton garment industry from 40 to 36, with a corresponding increase in piece work would have a strong psychological effect on the situation. Workers' Hours Cut WASHINGTON.— (IP)- The NRA announced Wednesday presidential approval of a reduction of weekly work hours from 40 to 36 without any cut in weekly wages for 200,000 workers in the cotton garment Industry. The change is effective October 1. The NHA said the effect of the order was equivalent to an increase of about 11 per cent in hourly pay and a .rise of about 10 per cent above the May 1st level in piece rates. It also permits the reemploymcnt of more than 10,000 workers. said thc loan would enable growers to market Iheir cotlon in orderly fashion and that they would not have to sell if the price slumped in Ihe near future. Privately, officials said they fell collon would bring around 13 cenls, or more, after the slrike Ihreat passes. Interim Certificates LITTLE ROCK.—Reports from all collon-producing sections of the state indicate that much cotton is being ginned, but that tax-exemption certificates arc not available and that disposition of the cotton is presenting a serious problem, Homer M. Adkins, collector of internal revenue for Arkansas, said Tuesday. Ginncrs arc responsible for payment of thc lax to revenue collectors, Mr. Adkins said, and they caimo release the cotlon until exemption certificates have been furnished or until approximately one-half of the sale price has been collccled in cash for their protection. Interim certificates are issued by counly commilleemen on request, cov- Peach Crop Best Since Year 1931 Arkansas Harvests 2,000 Carloads—Worth One Million Dollars By TED II. MALOY United Press Staff Correspondent LITTLE ROCK.— (U.R) —Happy Arkansas peach 'growers arc gathering the last of then- $1,000,000 crop. By thc end of the week more than 2,000 carloads will have left thc stale to complete the'season. It was Uje first good crop since 1931. Last- year growers salvaged 75 'cars from orchards hit by a late freeze. With dry weather taking its toll in the last w,eeks of the growing season this year the crop was estimated at 70 per cent of normal. ,' Orchardisis have received JJ.10 to $2 a bushel for their fruil. With those prices and a record yield they're happy. For Tour weeds long trains of refrigerator ears have sped out of Arkansas to Mid-Western and Eastern markets, Railroad men have worked da yaiid night on special schedules moving thc fruit. Truckers have taken their share of thc hauling but the Missouri Pacific railroad has handled most of the peaches. Long trains formed at Nashville in southern Arkansas where switch engines pulled loaded cars from tracks running Ihrough Ihe world's largest peach orchard. Puffing Ihrough Ihe 14,500-acre orchard originally owned by Berl Jolmson, the engines lined up the loaded cars al Nashville wchcre they were "iced" for their dash to Ihe markets. The big orchard, now known as the Highland Orchard, is under several ownership titles. Missouri Pacific already has moved 1,177 carloads out of the Nashville area and there are a few more to go. Col. H. J. Hix, assistant to Hie line's general supcrintendenl, said. The Crowley Ridge area of Eastern Arkansas, hardest hit by the drouth in the last weeks of the season, will ship only 200 of its present 600-car crop, Hix said. His line has moved 107 cars and 40 more arc expected from Ihe Rdigc Ibis week. Smaller railroads and trucking lines have carried the rest of the Arkansas crop.

Abscncc ° f f-called "dummy" candidates for slate of- 1933 V*i I i Dem ,°?f allc P nmar y Au g"<<t M was a result of enactment by the com' CrU11 '° ff prry IaW ' Ermks Hit * s ' Democratic national a icading ror In view of thc handicap under which tlw new act has placed politicians accustomed to employing maneuvers that would succeed only so Jong as minority nominations were possible, il is not surprising that efforts arc being made to create sentiment for repeal of the run-off law, Mr. Hays said. At several meetings of Democratic county central committees and county Democratic conventions since the August 14 primary, opposition to thc law has been expressed, but Mr. Hays said he did not believe the people would approve a return to the single primary system. "Dummy" candidates, he said, not only divided thc majority on many occasions in thc past, enabling a candidate to win with a comparatively small percentage of the votes, but they also made il possible to manipulate the counting of voles so that election frauds were not so apparent as they arc when a race is narrowed to two candidates, both seeking the office in good failh. Benefits Apparent Early. "Beneficial results of the run-off primary law were apparent when dummy candidates failed to qualify," Mr. Hays said. "Frequently in slate races, and in many campaigns for county offices, the voters have been tricked through confusion caused by candidates whose sole purpose was to help some one else win with a majority of the votes. "It has long been a favorite strala- gem of scheming politicians lo pul a dummy in Ihe race lo divide thc op- pposition and to mislead the voters. One has only to study the campaign which just closed to see that run-off primary law lias stopped that effectively. "Maneuvering such as usually accompanied the selection of nominees before enactment of the run-off primary law was noticeably lacking this year. With politicians schooled in'the old methods thus handicapped it is nol surprising that criticism should result. I believe that in practically all instances the opposition to thc law will be found to emanate from thc same sources that fought the plan when it was projected in thc 1929 and 1931 legislalurcs. Size of Vote No Criterion. "The fact that a small vote may be expected in the second primary does not mean that the principle of ma- jorily rule is disturbed. The second primary gives all who arc interested an opportunity to express their wishes. This is the important thing in Democratic government. Sometimes thc number of ballots cast is not the best criterion. "Doubtless, improvements need to be made in thc law to facilitate ils applicalion, but thc double primary itself has been proved sound and feasible, and I feel sure that thc people will not entertain any suggestion that it be abandoned. As a matter of fact, the run-off primary law ought to be supplemented with additional measures to protect thc public against election manipulations." ering 50 per cent of each producer's i ern part o{ thc statCi shipped about JQQ car i oac j s .

CUG'I'KRSTOWN, N. y.—After telling a story of .sinister insurance manipulations that may send Mrs. Eva Coo to Ihe electric chair, Harry Nabinger, handsome father of five children, Monday admitted that he had been her lover and lived with her as a husband in her home. Testifying \n the murder trial of Otscgo county's "Diamond Lil," NH- binger, one of the state's star witnesses, confessed that from lust September until her arrest in June he had been her willing dependent. He'd carried on the voluminous correspondence by which Eva, the slale charges, obtained nearly n score of insurance policies on the life of the handyman. Harry Wright, of whose brutal killing she is accused. The story of his degradation i-amc out under cross-examination by James J. Byard, Jr., Eva's lawyer. The husky blonde Eva's lower lip quivered a little when Nabinger confessed the intimate details of his association with her. Her fair head dropped a little farther into her shapely hands when Nabinger admitted that his position was Ulat dcscribable only by underworld terms. But in a moment Ihe flutter of emotion appeared lo be over. The accused woman, a buxom figure in her brown knitled suil, resumed her gum chewing while the pale, youngish man on the stand continued his astounding stroy. Open Toilets Hit by Health Board Preliminary Report Filed With Council by Medical Inspectors Insanilary condilions in Hope were condemned in a report filed with the city council Tuesday night by the Board of Health.

In thc districl known al "Tin Row" and lower parls of Ravine sanitary conditions are bad, several families using the same toilet. Just off of North EJm, near Ihe entrance of old ball park, we found a garage being used gs a pig pen. We also find thai back of James Bros, market refuse as scraps of meal, intestines from animals killed and green hides are placed in open containers making ideal breeding places for flies; also a source of obnoxious odors. We found thc city jail in such a condition that would make it a menace to Ihe health of persons thai might be placed therein.
