Besides' the state auditor's race, one congressional race will be decided, and county and district officers will be elected in 5fi of the 75 counties. "The only reason for a preferential primary." Governor Futrell .said, "is In prevent rule by a minority. It seems only natural for (hose who took an interest in the first primary to retain that inl'Mc;;! in the run-off election." "I sec no reason why there should nnl be it heavy vole in the run-off. There is no reason for a loss of intor- !•; 1 in (lie affairs of the slate in Hit; run-off election." It i.s practically certain that if there i.s a liKht vole in Tuesday's election opponents of the run-off will sci/.c upon the fart ;i.s an argument Mat the people do not want the law. Tbi' vole is certain to be smaller lhan in Ihe first primary, because fewer offices are at stake, and because it is not certain that elections will be held in somo counties where no races nrc to be decided in the county. The stale office at .stake is sought by Auditor J. Oscar Humphrey and Charley Parker. The incumbent lacked 11,00 votes of a majority over Parker and K. W. Parrish in the August M primary.

Explaining the expected changes in (Continued on Page Three) H ALF a million pcoplo may starve to death this summer because of the drouth. ; Not in a century has there been a drouth so severe. Crops have withered under a blazing sun which has kept the tcmbcrnturc at 115 dcgrec.s, day and night for weeks. Rivers have dried up and springs have slopped flowing. There is no food to be bed at all. over wide areas; in scores of villages and towns tho supply of drinking water has become exhausted. The federal government wants to do .something to relieve suffering, but it is weak, so overburdened with previous efforts to combat the drouth and so short of funds that it is very doubtful that it will be able to do anything effective. XXX Tliesc few sentences present a living nightmare. They do not apply, of course, to the United States. They do, however, apply to China. They were taken from a recent news dispatch lolling of the horrible crisis- which China is facing this .summer. The Chinese drouth is one of the worst in living memory. So is the one that hit the United States. Indeed the weather seems to have been about the same in each nation. Much heat, no rain, a steady depletion of water supplies, a burning and blistering of all growing thingh. In the United States it has meant great financial loss for the farmers and higher prices for the city dwcll- cash 1933. Celebration and Merchant's Show Here Canceled Legion Withdraws When Misunderstanding With Promoter Develops WILL REFUND MONEY Predict Increase School Attendance Nation Getting Ready to Take Care of ;•} 1,000,000 Pupils WASI11NGTON.~(/P)—The nation's educational system, still staggering from the blows of the depression, i.s getting ready to care for about one- fourth of the country population this fall. With attendances augmented by thousands who in normal times would find compensatory occupations, it is estimated that the enrollment will reach a record-breaking grand total of more than 31,000,000 students, some 28,000,000 in the publi cschools and 3,000,000 in private institutions. The increase over last year's attendance i.s figured to- be between 300,000 and •100,000. Government education official;; any l.hc brunt of the burden imposed by increased enrollment will he borne by the high schools, which already are jvcrcrowdcd and handicapped by drastic curtailment of facilities. Moreover .the drouth and continued pressure of adverse economic conditions arc expected lo make 13'1-1!)35 the worst ycHi- for the schools in some sections of the country. Improvement Forecast They hcliev.', however, that, on the whole the depression in education lias about reached bottom, thai, greater .stability will hi- attained in school financing in many .stairs this .year and Iliiil general improvement will be noticed u year hence. Emery M. Foster, chief slalislicuin of the United Slates office of education, .says (he (iiilloolc lias been brightened by the movement toward restoration and enlargement of state aid for .schools, by the business pickup in several southern states where the .situation had been dcspcralo and by the improvements in municipal tax collections. Nearly all school districts are reported to have some resources for opening their .schools Ibis fall. Whil no definite allotments of federal funds to prevent the closing of schools have been made, some states have taken steps to insure the operation of all public schools and the government i.s .setting up machinery to keep Hi schools goiiiH in the drouth areas. Post Expresses Thanks to Those Who Co-Operated in Proposed Celebration An American Legion Cclebratjon and Merchant's Exhibit, scheduled to be held at Fair Park. August 30-31 and September 1, has been called off, Oliver Williams, post commander, announced Monday. Withdrawal of the Legion post was caused by a misunderstanding between the promoter, Roy O'Bryun, aiul the Legion post. Sale of tickets to the pageant which was scheduled for Thursday night, will be refunded. Persons holding tickets will receive their money from W. M. Ramsey at Checkered cafe. William's Statement A statement to the public, issued by Mr. Williams follows: "Owing to a misunderstanding in connection with the promoting of the American Legion celebration and Merchant's Exhibit, the Leslie Hud- dlcston post has withdrawn and is no longer connected therewith. "No one is authorized to bind the local post in any manner pertaining to said proposed celebration. "We desire to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to the members of the American Legion Auxiliary, and other citizens of Hope who have responded and co-operated;- in the preparation for. said proposed itejU cbration, ""We asusrc them that we arc deep ly grateful for any assistance that haf been rendered."

To Kiss and Make Up! ers. In China it has meant nothing else than wide-spread starvation—people dying by thcs cores of thousands because they cannot ge.l food and water. XXX The contrast is instructive. The disaster was the same, in each case; but in one land there was a social and economic organization capable of meeting the crisis, while in the other land there was not. In other words, these terrible natural catastrophes that come upon us ever so often can be robbed of their worst terrors if society is organized to meet them properly. Mankind can triumph over nature if it wil]. Its worst dangers arc those that come when the human clement itself proves incapable of meeting the hallenge which fate periodically offers. XXX 'Hie regulations laid down by the new Federal Securities and Exchange Commission contain rules designed to check speculation by corporation officials who like to take little flyers in the securities of their own companies. Need of such a rule was abundantly shown by disclosures made before the Senate's famous .stock markets committee.

Ihe president has ordered a full survey of al Ihe "alphabet soup" agencies in Washington, with a view to making their future activities more colicrcnl am harmonious lhan lias been in the immediate past. There has been a great deal of confusion in the capital these last few ir.onlhs.

NRA Troubles Are Believed Settled Dispute Over Re-Organization Plans Causes Johnson to Walk Out WASHINGTON- (/P; -Deep seated character of NRA's latest troubles became apparent Monday when it was learned that General .Hugh S. Johnson angrily walfccifcioiit.oii"'-last Monday's White House conference. He resigned hi writing, but later reconsidered only on tho firm insistence of President Roosevelt. The dispute arose over an NRA reorganization plan submitted the president by Donald Richbcrg, NRA counsel. Among other things, the plan was interpreted by Johnson as contemplating his own retirement. Under reconciliation terms, Johnson stays as administrator and probably will become, later on, chairman of the board controlling NRA activities. Hichbcrk's friends say he wil continue as NRA counsel, although there will be no doubt that Jolmson is boss. Frances Perkins, secretary of labor, is expected to confine her activities more closely to the labor department n view of impending strikes over the nation.

Take Advantage of Grain Loans Farmers in Itcmpstead county shoulc take advantage of loan that is being offered them through Crop Loan Office, states Frank H. Stanley, county agent. The grain loan lo plant fall grains such as oats, rye, barley and whoa will do a great deal to relieve feed shortage due to drouth. All 'farmer,' that anticipate a shortage of feed should make applications at once foi loan, as date lor receiving loan will close on September 15. If an open winter should follow one might readitly expect an acre of hesc .small grains lo furnish grazing 'or one animal unit for a total period >f around 28 days. If the condition which followed the drouth in 193(1 •rcvails again very rapid growth of lie fall sown grains may bo expected.
