The Chines^ mantis e»m6 over from Asia on ursery stock about 1895, settled at Mt, Airy, PH., found climate and countryside to his liking, and annually since has been extending his empire in all directions. Already his legions are well known from Massachusetts to the District of Columbia and west. Being wholly carnivorous, the mantids are listed by the department of agriculture as beneficial. Only in rare cases do their appetites get the better of judgment and their bill of fare include such "beneficial" insects as honey bees or other mantids. In spite of his vicious appearance, the mantis is quite harmless to man. Ability to turn his triangular head completely around and the supplicant pose of his front legs has made the mantis a constant source of interest. Ancient Greeks endower the mantis with supernatural powers, gave him the name, "the diviner"; Turks and Arabs held he was a holy little fellow who prayed constantly with his head turned toward Mecca. In the United States, interest in his religiosity is secondary. Chief interest is in the inroads he is making against the armies of agricultural pests. Harlow Gets Job PINEHURST, N.

D., Japanese history is mostly legend or pure myth. Hope Plays at Jonesboro and Hot Springs Goes to Little RoRck LITTLE ROCK-(/P>—Three of the six undefeated leaders of the Arkansas High School Athletic Conference risk their chances for n football title against strong competition this week-end. Pine Bluff, Little Rock and Hope meet conference foes who, although previously trounced, are tough on anybody's gridiron. The 12 other conference members battle In contests, only one of which will have a bearing on the standings. Coach Allen Dunaway's powerhouse Zebras journey to Camden for an annual tilt with Coach "Sad Sam" Coleman's Panthers. Camden dropped a hard-fought battle to the favored Little Rock Tigers last week but is expected to be hard to stop Friday night. Pine Bluff, leading the league with three straight conference wins, is doped to win, although experts are unwilling to give points. Little Rock entertains Hot Springs' thrice-beaten Trojans at the capital. The Tigers, boasting the strongest eleven Little Rock has seen in years, rate as top-heavy favorites over the luckless spa team, but Coach Merving Perry may have uncovered a dependable attack during the past week. Hope meets Jonesboro. Foy Hammons charges have lost only one non- eonferehce game and hold a . in their only previous circuit engage* ment Lowell Manning's Hurricane from draighead county has lost two non-conference games. The game looks to be a toss-up. Port Smith and North Little Rock meet in the fourth all-conference tut North Little Rock is playing .500 ball and rates to defeat the Grizzlies who have managed to eke out only a single victory and score but one touchdown In four contests. '• 7, Blythevllle's powerful Chicks take oh Paragould in a Northeast Arkansas event that should give Conch Joe Dildy's boys something else to ttrag about. El Dorado journeys to nearby Smackover with a big chance of being soundly trounced. Russellville, playing 50-50 in the circuit, shows an open dale but Clarks- vllle will meet Fayetteville in a home engagement. The lightweight Forclyce Redbugs play Malvern's Leopards and Forrest City turns its Mustangs loose* on nearby Brinkley. The tail-end Ben-! ton team engages Conway in what should be a nip-and-tuck battle. GET UP NIGHTS?

It is a local one and I have no place in it. I did send Governor Bailey a wire as I have done on similar occasions. I can understand full well that it might have been misconstrued." James A.

Scott, president of the National Drainage, Levee and Irrigation Association, reveal the emptiness of Mr. Bailey's cunniny pretensions to presidential favor. Last year Mr. Scott was Finance Chairman in Arkansas for tho Democratic National Committee and raised the largest per capita contribution in the nation for the Roosevelt-Garner ticket. Before joining Congressman Miller's campaign headquarters, Mr. Scott, who was probably the first man in Arkansas to declare himself for the nomination of Mr. Roosevelt in 1932, wrote Col. Mclntyre and Mr. Farley. Learning of Mr. Farley's routine telegram of congratulations to Governor Bailey under date of August 4, (five days before the convention of rank and file Democrats which nominated John E. Miller), he knew that, the National Chairman had not been informed that the committee nomination was illegal. His loyalty to the President and the National Chairman impelled him to advise them of the situation before casting his lot with Congressman Miller. Completely reassured by Mr. Farley's letter . . . and assurance confirmed by Col. Me-| : Inly re's later letter of October 2, written fromf; Spokane, Washington on the President's Western; he threw himself with characteristicY tour whole'-h'eartedness into the Miller campaign. With hit* two illegal committee nomination^ 1 and one petition, Mr. Bailey will lony be remem* be red as the most nominated and least elected, manipulator in Arkansas polities. • •ft Confident of President Roosevelt's continued personal friendship and assured of his complete and proper neutrality in this race, Congress, man Miller submits his candidacy to the people with a pledge of continued loyalty to them an4 to the Democratic Party.
