' Bailey urged federal action to assure good roads and flood protection Friday night in another major address in his campaign for the United State senate. He was introduced to a courthouse crowd by Mayor V. B. McCloy. "Removal of the present restrictions on state participating in federal funds for construction of highways will be one of my first items of business if sent to Washington as your senator," he said. "This will mean paved roads for O Is Norval. f nm~a dealer in rugs. Have you any worn rugs that you might care to exchange for new ones?" "All my rugs are worn," replied Mm. Gaston, humorously,"—some more than othera. But 1 don't see how you can afford to exchange new ones for them." "I can quickly tell you, If you Will let me see them," said the man. Mrs. Gaston had been wondering whether to have the old rugs cleaned or to discard thom-and buy new ones. However, they seemed too good to discard, and she had made up her mind to make them do for another winter. But she saw no reason why she should nol at least see what sort of bargain the stranger had io offer. "I'll show them to you," she said "But you surely don't mean you really give new rugs for old?" "Yes, we do," Norval assured her "We place a value on your old rugi and apply the amount on the price ol the new ones. "Oh, 1 see. But in that case yot wouldn't allow me much for the old one—this one, for Instance . . .?."

When inviting house guests should the hostess give them an idea of the activities she has planned so that they may know what clothes to bring? 2. If it is impossible for a hostess to meet her house guest when he arrives at the station, should tlio hostess or her guest pay for the taxi fare? 3. Is it thoughtful for a hostess to see that he house guest is supplied with an extra blanket for the night? 4. Is it a good idea for a person going on a visit to take a few extra hangers with him? 5. Should a house guest expect his hostess to keep him supplied with stamps? What would you do if— You wish to invite guests for a week end? How would you word the invitation as to the time of the visit? (a) "Come for the week end?" (b) "Can you pome for dinner on Friday and stay through Sunday noon?" (c)"Come out Friday and spend the weekend?" more than $25 several .years before. Norval inspected the rug closely "I couldn't allow you more than $18 for that one," he said. "You'll really allow me that much?' Mrs, Gastori asked. "Yes. That would scam about the right price. You see, I want to do the right thing by everybody. You have other rugs, I suppose?" "Yes, 1 have several more. -They are all on the back porch. You sec, I'm house -cleaning." Norval spread out the rugs on the porch floor. After making notes of the size and conditloh of each, he made an appraisal of another 9x12 at $18. There were two smaller ones, one of which he appraised at $12 and the other at $7. Mrs. Gaston was agreeably surprised. The prices were far in'oxces* of what she had expected. "Let's sec," she said. "That would'mako a total of $55 for the four rugs. Is that correct?" "Yes," said Norval. "That 1 * right. Now let me show you soma of our new rug patterns. They arc all here in this book." He opened the book'at some very btautiful illustrations, with descriptions and sizes carfctuUy shown. One 9x12 in particular£took .Mrs. Gaston's fancy. f ' "That's a beautiful rug,' she said. "But I'm sure it would be much too high-priced for Norval smiled. "That's the way everybody talks until they hear our prlew. That nig. just as you see U, we sell for only $30. With an allowance of $18 for yours of the same size, that leaves a balance of only $12." Mrs. Gaston immediately decided to exchange all of her rugs, each for a new one of its own site. After de ducting her credits, she found that by paying $30 she could offec.t an exchange and have all her new rugs. "I suppose I pay the $30 when the rugs arrive?" she asked. "No," said Norval. "In order to offer the quality of mercliohdise We sell at such prices, we are required, to pay cash with each of bur Borders. So we arc obliged to ask our, Custbrhers to advance one-half the tfmount in cash to us, and the balance'upon'delivery of the rugs." . ' That sounded reasonable to Mrs. Gaston, and she paid $15. Norval took her rugs and promised the new ones in ten days, When three weeks had passed and neither rugs nor word received, Mrs. Gaston wrote to Norval at the address on his card. But her letter was returned, marked "unknown." She then went to the police deparUncnt and related the circumstances, "Mrs. Gaston," said the officer in charge, "you are the tenth woman who has been here this week with a complaint against this fellow. We've triec to locate him, but so far we've had no luck. He took several hundred dollars and a load of rugs out of this town and that's probably the last we'll ever hear of him."

A crowd estimated at 7,000 including a large delegation from south Arkansas,, witnessed the interesting and hard fought game. Although Lowell. Martindale's field goal in the second quarter gave the Van Sickle Swingers a 3-to-O majority at the half, it was a nip and tuck contest for the first three periods. Then came the fourth and Little Rock's deadly passing combination—Melvin White to Howard Hughes—went into action. A few minutes later a mixed running and passing attack accounted for the Tigers' second touchdown. While Coach Sam Colemaii's Panthers bowed to a superior team, Camden supporters should be proud of their snappy grid representation. Coleman has two corking big backs in Fletcher and Kiz.zia and Leonard Stern and he showed a hard-fighting line. The Panthers were dangerous from the beginning. Although they {ailed to reach pay dirt, they got as far as the Little Rock 14-yard line in tlic fourth quarter. The fact that 27 first downs were made, 15 by Little Rock and 12 bj Camden, indicates the offensive play The Tigers gained 191 yards iron scrimmage to 118 for the Panthers. Little Rock had the best of the air at tack, featured by the While-to-Hughe shot that netted 66 yards and a touch down.

China, in accepting the League ofi Nations invitation to participate' in the nine-power treaty conference aimed to end the war in the orient, called upon the League to ••' convoke the conference as quickly „ as possible because the war is proving more and more disastrous. Following the course personally charted by -President Roosevelt, L Secretary Hull in Washington, shaped a policy for American delegates to the parley, but gave no Indication of this policy. .

When the old school became overcrowded, authorities built a new one two miles away. Though the ncsv school is very modern, parents became incensed over the dangers they felt the two-mile walk exposed their children to. The rebel school is held in a corner of a public playground without chairs desks or blackboards. Pupils squat on the ground and the teacher walks between the lines, shouting questions nt them and hearing their recitations. TEXARKANA, Ark.—A crowd conservatively estimated at 4000 persons overflowed the grandstands at Buhrman Field Friday night at the second annual Boy Scout circus and had to be placed on special bleacher seats originally erected to seat Scouts and the bands. Despite that invasion, the bleachers did not afford the crowd sufficient room, and long lines of spectators formed along the sides of the huge arena and watched the show frob beginning to end, pronouncing it the best yet. From start to finish, the acts moved with speed and smoothness, and with H. W. Stilhvell acting as narrator and commentator, every move made by the scouts, much of which was in pantomime, was of significance to the spectators. The grand entry was impressive as usual, the crowd rumbling to its feet as the massed colors 'entered to the soft strains of "America," played by the Texarkana College band, led by W. J. Hurst, director. The pageant "Pages From the History of the Four States Area" was well presented and each of the four acts brought heavy applause from the grad nstand. Horsemanship acts were good, with the scouts showing unusual management of their animals, putting them through many acts seen only in the big-time "big tops." A feature was a horse jumping through a circle of fire. Ropes and whips, which came next, drew a big hand from the stands. The scouts displayed unusual ability with the whips, cutting paper into shreds while held by another scout in his mouth.

Answers cu Classified Page Italy Plans Attack LONDON, Eng.—W—The Spanish ' government Saturday accused Italy of ' planning an unprecedented campaign, to support the Spanish insurgent cause. At the same time Italy's answer to the Anglo-French invitation to confer on the withdrawal of foreign volunteers from the Spanish civil war was delivered to French and British envoys in Rome. Parisian sources unofficially reported that Italy ruled out the possibility of the meeting unless Germany was invited. It Wfis claimed that Italy's new intervention in the Spanish war would include "gas attacks on Spanish cities." Kitchens' Statement EL DORADO, Ark.—(/P)—Congressman Wade Kitchens of Magnolia said Friday he favored the United States remaining neutral in the Sino-Japanese conflict. He said he still remembered the American loss of life in the World war and the vast amount of capital that went out in foreign loans which have not been repaid. "I am opposed to meddling in foreign wars or the affairs of other nations," Kitchens said. "I am opposed to any idea that the 'United States is a guardian of pe.ace in the world' or that its sons are to be used and slaughtered in a futile attempt to keep the peace among other nations. "The league (of nations) tried sanctions on Italy in her conquest of Ethiopia and the effort was a failure. If the league tries sanctions on Japan it will likewise mean a failure unless the U. S. be ready to engage in war and join in these sanctions." Jap Side Given SHANGHAI.~(.<P>—General Matsui, 'apanese commander - in - chief at ihanghai, told the Chinese public in statement Saturday that "the sole aim of Japan's armed expedition in China is to eradicate at any cost China's anti-Japanese policy." The commander's statement followed his proclamation Friday of Japa- lese invasion. Chinese considered the proclamation, in which Matsui said lhat the Japanese army "is now pre» pared to use every means to subdue its opponents," as the equivalent of a diplomatically formal declaration of war, The new statement said that Japan bears no enmity toward the Chinese people and Japan is "willing and happy to receive those Chinese who have a genuine desire for further peace in the Orient." Matsui said Japan is "determined to push directly but firmly toward the proclaimed end of forcing the bellicose (Chinese) government and its anti-Japanese army to alter its attU tude."
