HOPS STAR, HOPE, ABfe&NSAS Cases IfClA..—WV—More men than 'ttk Madrid—Strtet car motor- y—have had their nerves ky the rein of bombs and But the increase in the number of mental eases has been much lower than anticipated and is not alarming, officials aver. Instances of shell shock among volunteers in the Spanish republican army are unusually low, authorities agree. Dr. Munro A. Meyer of New York, who has studied the effects of the waf in Spain In individual nervous breakdowns, explains the resistance by the fact the men know what they are fighting for. Cases of shell shock, it is reported, j seem to be more frequent among members of the International Brigade than among Spaniards. Star Dust By LEONARD ELtlS faao. ON GUARD... I CITIZENS' Don't Let The Renegades Trick You! It has been charged the Democratic State Committee officials have threatened to bar at the 1938 primary any who vote for the independent candidate for United States Senator. That is not true. 1 Neither the State Committee nor any County Committee is going to bar bolters from voting at the primary in 1938. It isn't necessary that they should, because the courts will see to it that the votes of all bolters will be thrown out when made an issue in contest proceedings. Any acquaintance may challenge, and cause to be thrown out, the vote of a bolter who presents himself at the polls, and the courts will uphold the action. The Supreme Court Speaks In McLain vs. Fish, 159, Ark., 199, 251 S. W, 686, the Arkansas Supreme Court said: "The next contention is that the court erred in not counting in appellant's favor the votes of ten electors who offered to vote in the town of Gould but were rejected by the election officers for the alleged reason that they had violated party rules with respect to voting for party nominees. "One of the rules of the Democratic party provides that if any person presents himself to vote 'who is known to have voted against a Democratic nominee at a general election held within • ' two years last preceding, who by his words or action has espoused the cause of other than Democratic nominees preceding a general or special election within said time, his righ.t to vote at such person's action, the said judge shall prohibit such a person from . . voting at such primary election.' "IT APPEARS THAT IN THE BIENNIAL ELECTION IN 1930 THESE PERSONS HAD SIGNED A PETITION OF NOMINATION OF . INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES FOR JUSTICE OF THE PEACE IN OPPOSITION TO THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEES, AND HAD VOTED FOR SUCH INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES COUNSEL CONTEND, IN THE FIRST PLACE, THAT THIS RULE IS VOID BECAUSE IT IS --.'. AN UNREASONABLE RESTRICTION UPON THE CONSTI- • •"'* TUTIONAL RIGHT TO VOTE AND THAT. SUCH RESTRICTION CANNOT BE IMPOSED BY PAB/TY RULES. "In Ferguson vs. Montgomery, supra, we held that political parties 'have exclusive jurisdiction a-s to the regulation of primary election, except a-s taken away by statute,' and that party rules prescribing test for qualification.^ of voters will be upheld unless ' in conflict with statute "THE REFUSAL TO ABIDE BY THE NOMINATIONS CERTIFIED CONSTITUTED AN INFRACTION OF PARTY RULES AND BARRED THOSE PERSONS FROM VOTING AT THE NEXT DEMOCRATIC ELECTION. "WHERE NOMINATIONS ARE DULY CERTIFIED, VOTERS HAVE NO RIGHT TO QUESTION THE NOMINATIONS COLLATERALLY, AND IF THEY DO SO THEY • THEREBY BID DEFIANCE TO PARTY RULES AND SUBJECT THEMSELVES TO PARTY DISCIPLINE. THEY CANNOT JUSTIFY THEMSELVES UNDER THE RULE BY SAYING THAT THE NOMINATIONS WERE NOT LEGAL." Those are the words of the Arkansas Supreme Court. Just a Few Instances The renegades, who wrote the party rules they now rebel against because they can't 'use them for their personal advantage, don't tell the voter&— That in 1933, an election contest involving the Fifth district congressional seat was dismissed because certain of the persons petitioning for the contest had voted against the Democratic nominee for chief justice a few months before (and the chief justice nominee was not named in a primary). That in 1934, an election contest in Independence county was dismissed because certain of those participating had voted against the chief justice nominee in 1933. That in 1934, an election contest in Arkansas county was dismissed because certain of the participants had voted against the chief justice /'nominee in 1933. That in 1930. Dr. W. H. Abington, when made a defendant in a contest of his nomination to the State Senate, cross-complained and challenged 1,500 voters who he said had voted against Al Smith and Senator Robinson, / national Democratic nominees for president and vice president, in 1928. The election contest was dismissed shortly after these votes were challenged. ".* " : That three aspirants for office in Jackson county in 1930 were ruled off the ballot because they had not supported all Democratic nominees in the 1928 election. That one aspirant in Pulaski county lost an opportunity to seek office in 1030 becau.se he had bolted in 1928. Rule Or Ruin Tactics THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS BIGGER THAN ANY MAN.

PRAISES CAPTAIN KEITH Dear Sir: Jusf a few words in praise of one or the lenst publicized—but one of the more important cogs in the Bobcat machine—Captain G. V. Keith. Keith is on top of every play and is a "Rock of Gibrnltcr" on the defense. He is the cortierstonc of the Bobcat's "Seven Pillars of Granite." Allow me to venture the prediction that the Bobcats have nn excellent chance of finishing as high as third or higher in the conference this year. If the Bobcats play the football they are capable of doing against Jonesboro they should take them like the Yanks took the Giants. —A Bobcat Fan. Dear Bobcat Fan: We want to thank you for your communication and say that we agree with you. Captain Keith is a fierce charger, hard tackier and is a steading influence on the entire team. In speaking of linemen may we ndd that the Bobcats' left tackle, Grady Quimby, deserves praise for his fine work this season. Quimby is one of the anchors of the forward wall, alert, steady and dependable. Noble Masters, the Bobcats' right halfback, comes from a long line of lootball players. The son of Mr. and Mrs. C. P. Masters, Noble is the fifth son to take to the gridiron. One of Noble's older brothers, Walter, was an all-state center on the Greenville. Texas, high school team four years ago. All four of Noble's brothers later played college football. Noble's father is a rabid football and baseball fan. Mrs. Masters has never seen a football game.

(Adv.) ob in 1938. Barnes left no doubt as to his high regard for the former Cardinal pilot who joined the Browns as a coach this year when Jim Bottomley succeeded Rogers Hornsby as mannager, "Gabby is a good man and has a fine •ecord," Barnes said. "He has been managing teams a long time and seldom has finished in the second position. We'd go a long way before we'd : ind any man better than Street find unless someone not considered right low turns up, it looks like our 1938 manager will be Street." Barnes said the new manager would not be named until "just before the minor league meeting in December." The Browns finished in the American League cellar. Bottomley was regarded as having a good chance to manage she team next year until he applied for the Cincinnati Reds job "just for a laugh." 1 FOR SALE I • ••• | 5 room Residence—322 Sxiutli I Shovcr street.

Jacob Ruppert's brewery Wednesday and 10 minutes later came out with a brand new three-year contract to manage the world's champion New York Yankees at $35,000 per year. The colonel had the papers ready. McCarthy took one look at the 'figures and the length of .service and ' reached for his fountain pen. | All concerned were pleased. As a ! reward for Joe's fine work and also 1 as evidence of his complete satisfaction with his manager's work, Colonel Rupert broke one of his unwritten rules and signed for longer than two j years. j When McCarthy signed for two years in the summer of 1935, the salary was not made public, but it was the gen- I eral belief among baseball men that the contract called for approximately 535,000 annually. j In the seven years he has piloted the ; Yankees, McCarthy has won three pennants and three world's series. His teams have finished second four times. He is the only man in the majors to win pennants in both leagues. In 192J he led the Chicago Cubs to a National League pennant, but lost the world's series to Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics. McCarthy has few worries about nex year so far as the Yankees are con- iterned. Except for a possible replace, ment for the veteran Tony Liazzeri a second base, the Yanks probably wil ! go into the 1938 campaign with virtual ly the same lineup that enabled them to coast through the American League with a 13-game lead this year, and then go on to waUop the Giants in the bi series. ST. LOUIS— (JP)— Donald L. Barnes president of the St. Louis Browns, re fused to say definitely, but there is strong possibility that Charles (Gabby Street will be handed the manager 1 Legalityf)of the [Nomination The Independent candidate and some members of county committees persist in saying that the nomination of Carl E. Bailey by the Democratic State Committee was illegal, for the reason that the statues of Arkansas do not empower a State Committee to make a nomination. They state that, Under Section 3746 of the Digest, n nomination can be made in only three ways: (t) by a Convention of delegates, (2) a primary election, or (3) petition of electors. Whoever makes a statement of that kind is woefully ignorant of the decisions of I he courts which have construed statues similar to the Arkansas statute. The States of Minnesota and Montana are the only states which have statutes similar to the Arkansas statute, both being almost in the same language as ours. The Supreme Court of each of those States stated in emphatic language that when such a statute does not prohibit a State Committee from making a nomination, the State Convention (which is authorized to make a nomination by the statute) has the right and power under the statute to delegate its authority to nominate to a committee of its own selection, and that the act of the committee, when such power has been delegated to it by the convention, is the act of the convention itself; and that the certificate of nomination executed by the chairman and secretary of the committee, is the proper and legal method of certification. See White v. Sanderson, 74 Minn. 118, and State v. Benton, 13 Mon. 306. Unquestionably the lawyers representing the Indpendent candidate, fully realized that if they filed a suit to test the legality of the Bailey nomination, the suit would result in defeat. There was sufficient time to have filed a suit to test the proposition after Governor Bailey was nominated mid after the Independent candidate had filed his petition with the Secretary of State. The fact that no test was ever sought in the courts is a tacit admission by the Independents that the nomination WPS legal. Lawyers representing Bailey requested lawyers who spoke for the Independent candidate to file the suit, but they replied that instead of having the question tested in court it would suit them better just to take the position that the nomination was illegal. The inference was thai the ordinary layman, being unfamiliar with law and court decisions, would swallow such propaganda. Let no one fool himself—the nomination of Carl E. Builey by the State Committee was in accordance with the statutory law and the rules of the Democratic Party and he is the lugul nominee of the Democratic Party for United States Senator. When the Independent candidate and his cohorts say that Governor Bailey's nomination was illegal, they proclaim to the world that the nomination of the following, made also by committees, were illegal: William F. Kirby, United States Senator. Mrs. Pearl Peden Oldfield, Congresswoman. Mrs. Effie Wingo, Congresswoman. Mrs. Hattie W. Caraway, United States Senator. J. S. Utley, Circuit Judge. Duvall J. Purkins, Circuit Judge. Elmer Owens, Chancellor. Harry T. Wooldrige, Chancellor. Guy Fulk, Circuit Judge. Abner McGehee, Municipal Judge and many others. Under the court decisions of Arkansas, it is the duty of those who wish to be classed as Democrats, to participate in future Democratic primaries, hold positions as Democratic committeemen or delegates, or to run as candidate in Democratic primaries, to support the Democratic nominee at the special election on next Monday. See McLain v. Fish, 159 Ark. 199, Ferguson v. Montgomery, 148 Ark. 83. If that be construed as a threat, please bear in mind that it is not made by officials of the Democratic State Committee, but by the Supreme Court of Arkansas. £. Chas. Eicfcenbftwro, Attorney, —Advertisement The following editorial was published October 7,1937, in the Jackson County Democrat, Newport, Ark. A spectacle of the misfortune of politics as played by self-ccnlcred professional politicians occurcd in Arkansas this week when Mrs. Edwilda Robinson, was literally drngged from the coffin of her lute eminent husbnnd, Joseph T. Robinson, in their desperate attempt to bolster their rapidly sinking ship of hope that Governor Carl E. Bailey, Democratic nominee for the United States Senate might be defeated. In a prepared statement she endorsed the Independent candidate. This elogtmt lady who for years hns shared the limelight with her statesman-husband, apparently has been mislead and mistreated by those who are attempting to wreck the Democratic party in the state and place it in an unfavorable light with the New Deal administration by elevating a congressman who has been critical of our be- 1 >vcd President and has been found wanting on practically all of the •few Deal program in Washington. These statements are not made without the first hand knowledge of the writer, In conference with friends not so many months before the late Senator Robinson died he made this statement of John. E. Miller, Independent candidate for the United States senate. "He is the rno.st . undependable member of the Arkansas delegation, and you can never know where he is." That statement followed on the heels of the experience friends of the late Senator had less than 18 months ago, when John Miller was making the last race for the seat in the lower house of Congress. The Independent candidate lias always hud opposition and each campaign has shown his support waning. When Miller returned from Washington to make his campaign he saw that he faced a hard fight and as only one of his many excuses for failure to make any kind of a legislative showing, the the statement that "if Senator Robinson had done his share and as much as he- could in behalf of flood control, reservoirs would be built along the • White River." That statement was made several times before the Independent candidate was informed that unless he stuck to the truth and left Senator Robinson out of his excuses, there would be an even harder race on the congressman's hands." This certainly would not mean co-operation of the kind of which Mrs. Robinson was talking. She just had not been informed ond has never become H politician. She has been (oo busy maintaining her elegant home which was the • mecca and joy to many outstanding leaders of the World during the years her husband served Arkansas. Mrs. Robinson docs not deal in petty politics. She is too fine a character. While Senator Robinson contrary to the advice of his physician, was working unselfishly at the expense of his health, which cau-a;d his death, for the passage of the Supreme Court bill believed by National Democratic leaders the most important piece of legislation, the now Independent candidate to succeed Senator Robinson was opposing his every move and wrote back to one of his Jackson county supporters, that ho was opposed to the President's plan and "that was not the only point on which he and the President did not agree." That certainly would not be termed co-operation the kind that Mrs. Robinson knows. One of the last acts of Senator Robinson was to secure the appointment of Judge Tom C. Trimble, son of his former law partner, to fill the vacancy left by the death of John E. Martineau. The now Independent candidate at that time was turning heaven and earth in Washingon to secure the appointment for himself knowing full well that he must do something before the time for his renomination occurs next August. Was that co-operating with Senator Robinson? The legislative record of the Independent candidate bespeaks of his ability. During his seven years he has introduced 68 bills nnd has secured the passage of five. One of these measures was a copy of the engineer's report of the survey made in the White River valley relative to flood control, he now calls it his TVA program for Arkansas. It is merely recommendations made by the governments trained men aver a period of years, long before John Miller became congrossjnwi by the much discussed process of securing the Beebe votes from Its friend Abbington at Beebe. The 'Legal' Candidate Among the misstutements being made by the Independent candidate pertains to the legality of the present election. He has for years posed as an attorney. He knows full well that the courts are established for deciding legal questions. If there is any question about the legality of the nomination of Carl E. Bailey who has not this Independent Moses gone into the courts and decided the question. Why was it that the heralded legal contest to question the certification of Carl Builey as the Democratic nominee never filed. The voters well know that John Miller is attempting to drag them with him from the Democratic Party. He knows that the court has already passed on the question of party loyalty and that the question was raised by his fellow supporter Congressman D. D. Terry, in his successful election contest. He knows that the court has passed on the question of bolters. He knows that by voting for him every person so voting may legally have their ballots cast out as was held by the court ruling that, "Where nominations are duly certified, voters have no right to question the nominations collaterally, and if they do so they thereby bid defiance to party rules and subject themselves to party discipline. They cannot justify themselves under the rule by saying that the nomination was not legal." He knows and the county Democratic Central Committee should know that this is a matter of law and not a ruling for any county body. Again we say that the court is the place for legal questions to be settled. Why do they not take the nomination to the courts? John Miller's supporters informed the editor of the Jackson County Democrat in requesting his attendance at the handrpicked. convention which nominated the Independent candidate that this would be filed the following Monday. Why was it never filed? Was it not because they learned of the law in the case? Did anyone ever see a lawyer fail to file a suit when he has any chance for a legal decision? Elect CARLE.
