Gentry Brothers Show Comes Here Thursday The famous Snycler Family of dancing dogs is coining back to Hope on Thursday September G. for a matinee 2:30 and a night performance at 8 on West Ave. B, near the city limits. No doubt you remember them. Certainly you do if you have ever attended the performance of Gentry Bros. Trained Animal Show, Tine Sny- dcr act was created 50 years ago by Henry B. Gentry, who still manages the show he established then. The Gentry show is distinctive in many ways. It caters especially to women and children. Tilings that delight such audiences make up the performance. To add zest, and also to break the monotony of an exclusively trained animal periomance the Steiner Trio of acrobats is introduced in a fast and pleasing manner. The Powell troupe of wire walkers also give a "kick" to the show. One of them turns somersaults on the wire as cosily as the average youngster plays in a sandpile. To describe the performance of Gentry Bros. Shows would reguire a vol- Predicts Record for Federal Relief 5 Million Families May Be On Relief by Next February WASHINGTON -(/P)— A prediction that 5,000,000 families, a new high record, would bo on the federal relief rolls in February, was made Monday by Donald Reichberg, secretary of President Roosevelt's executive council. The severity of the druoth situation and the usual seasonal increase was given as reasons for the expected gain. The prediction of future needy was in the third council report on "New Deal" progress. That was accompanied in a statement in which the council secretary saici: "The amount of federal relief payments which can be attributed to the strikes has been almost negligible." Should relief rolls be increased to IJ.OOO.OOO families they would constitute the heaviest load since Mr. Roosevelt office. The lorgost previous relief burden, Richbcrg's figures showed was in March, 1933, when 4,560,000 $2,500^900 Asked for State Schools Cornjmissioner of Education Requests Federal •Funds for Arkansas LITTLE HOCK -(If)— A formal request for $2,500,000 to aid Arkansas schools was forwarded • to Washington hy W. E. Pliipps, comissloiier of education. In a letter to Dr. L. R. Alderman director of the federal emergency education program, Commissioner Phipps reviewed the financial difficulties 01 Arkansas school districts as reveolec in a recent survey. The survey covered 548 of the 3,086 districts in 73 of the 75 counties "Many school districts in Arkansas face the forthcoming school term With no funds with which to.pay salaries of teachers, and others have little with which to operate schools for a normal term." The districts surveyed enroll 17G,- 928 pupils and employ 4,710 teachers, Phipps said. The districts have sufficient funds to pay teachers salaries for 27,853 school clays, compared to the 83,856 days required for a normal term. ''The total number of days for which there is need of additional funds is 56,003. "The total amount of money available for teachers' salaries in 548 districts is ?7!)6,089. "The additional amount needed for teachers' salaries is ?1,966, 987. "From our knowledge of the financial condotion of other districts based on records in this office it is estimated that there wil be a further need of 5;i33,022, making a total need of approximately $2,500,000 from FERA tunds to pay salaries for the normal term in the school districts of the state. "In all of the above calculations it has been assumed that taxes due for the fiscal year under consideration will bo paid in full. Due to the druoth conditions this assumption is probably ill founded." Phipps said that the survey found 127 districts without funds to pay the salaries of teachers for even one day. "In fact these 127 districts lack $178,148 of having sufficient funds with which to pay oilier current expenses thiin salaries." - anct Then Cackles in Englisfc porkers Picked tO n i • Vil'TC! u 111.0 Land Slide in California May Change Political Front A six-foot mechanical hen that can do everything, Including talk produces eggs to order at the International Veterinarles Convention in New-York.

Textile Employes Fear Lives As Writer Weeks to Get Interviews Mill Workers Afraid of Penalty for "Talking"—Company Agents Follow Moves of NEA Staff Writer in Southern Mill Town By BYRON PRICE (Chief of Bureau. The Associated Press, itshington) Upton Sinclar's victory in California has stirred the interest of thoughtful politicians as no previous event in years. A few scoff, choosing to regard the whole affair as a bubble. The majority take no such view. They see at least a posibility that something really vital, something historic nnd revolutionary, in the broadest sense, is happening among the voters. To many, such questions as the effect on the "new deal," the possible embarrassment to Mr. Roosevelt, the obvious stimulus to a further breaking down o fcxisting part ylines, all appear incidental and rather unimportant.

They invisage the country facing a growing crystallization of sentiment on two sides oi a battle front so extensive as to dwarf mere questions of parties, personalities, or ordinary political expediency. The Sinclair landslide was the second notable piece of evidence on that subject which has gone into the record within the space of a few days. The first was projection of the new American Liberty League, led by a Democrat, reputably financed in large part by Republicans, launched with the avowed purpose of defending the right to property as embraced in the capitalistic system. In contrast to this Sinclair, a Socialist, proclaiming the failure of the capitalist! csystem, is swept into the Democratic nomination for governor of California by a primary majority which obviously found many thousands of Republicans coming over to his support.

The names of the persons you have talked with will have 'eached the general manager of the mill. Perhaps, like myself, you will be accused of being a \a- 3or "organizer"—and therefore subject to suspicion. I made my visit because I wanted to write Q newspaper novel about a girl worker in a textile mill. I wanted to see a mill town, find out how mill workers live, collect color and "background" for my story. I did not know the textile workers' grievances in the threatened strike. Naturally J had no convictions about these grievances, and I had no idea I would ever be writing this particular story. It just happened! Within six hours mill agents were trailing mo. ('rid Writers Forecast ft. M. U. lo Cop Southwestern Football Title FOHT WORTH, lex.—Tho Southern Mcthodis'. University Musfnuifg will win the 19.'!4 Southwest conference footbnlI championship. At least that is what Southwest sports writers think about it. Here's the way these pre-season guessers who were polled by the T. C. U. News Bureau think the seven schools will finish the season: Southern Methodist University University of Texas Texas A. & M. College Texas Christian University University -if Arkansas Rice Instiute Baylor University. Probably the most surprising thing about the result (the sports editors gave their opinions on how the seven teams would finish in response to a request of this writer) is the placing of the Arkansas Razorbacks in fifth place. Much of the early gossip has given the Razorbacks a good chance lo finish on top of . the heap. The Hogs were "guessed in every position from first to last. T. C. U., Baylor and Rice failed to get a single vote for first.place. Most of the dopesters placed the three teams just about where they stand in the final results. Texas got votes for from first to sixth place; A. & M. for from first to seventh; and S. M. U. for from first to sixth. Slightly more than one-third of those voting, however, -picked the Mustangs for first place, which puts them far out in front as pre-season favorites. Several sports writers volunteered the opinion that no Southwest eleven would go through the 1934 conference season undefeated. The British army is technically the best and the French is the best trained, according to a German.general. chines, too. No dissatisfaction? ... I didn't talk to all of the 1GOO employes in that mill. Some of them may not be das- satisfied, may not be interested in. the threatened strike. But some of those who bend over machines all day —I'm very sure of it—have not forgotten Patrick Henry.

There is ii "mill village," rows and rows of small wooden houses just outside the Those dwellings do not supply enough room for all the workers though, and many of them live a mile away in the center of the town. There is a dormitory, owned by the company, housing about GO girls.

Here are some answers: An old man—cheeks sunken, grey hair thinned to a fringe—shakes his head. "I ain't never joined a union. I thought I'd just go my own way. But of course, if there's a strike, I'll have to go with the rest." An alert, bright-eyed young woman of 22, wearing a skimpy, cheap cotton dress, her nails brightly enamelled, says, 1 "We're not afraid. There isn't anything more they can do to us than they have done." Her wages have been reduced from §20 a week to the government minimum, $13.

That would delay, but might not evade, the clear-cut decision toward which present events are point- nighl ilaces. So I went alone. Finds Union Leader I needed a starting place, some way to become acquainted with these strangers. I bud secured the name of a man I understood was president of the textile workers' union there. A cashier in a restaurant told me this man was the gate-keeper at the mill. But he wasn't. 1 found him in the town proper. "No," he said. " I haven't worked nnce the company found out we'd organized the union. Sure, I'll take you around to talk to anyone you want to talk to. I've got plenty of time." ^ We went to the girl's doritory. "Can 1 arrange 10 spend the night here?" I asked the matron. She said she'd be glad to have me if I could get permission from the general manager of the mill. A trip to the gates of the mill again. A wait. Yes, the general manager would see me. But I couldn't spend a night in the dormitory. No one could be permitted to do, that. You're in Bud Company Suddenly the general manager asked crisply, "will you tell me why you're riming around with ?" (Naming the ex-gate keeper.) "1 don't know anyone else here." "Well, you're in bad company-" Before I could reply, came the next question. "You're sure you're not affiliated with the American Federation of Labor?" "No." The general manager agreed to show me through the mill. "Now," be said as I left, "you may talk to the giiis us much as you want to but it must be outside (he mill." 1 went back to the dormitory that night. The matron was there and \vas friendly Lut I was not given an opportunity to talk to any of the girls. I went for a drive on the beautiful moon-lit mountain roads. A ear followed—the car of the man who had informed the general manager about my visit with the young man who had been discharged. I was a meeting one night," he said, i "to organize a union. Seven men were there. The next day six of us were I fired. Of course we know the other ' was a stool pigeon. We're doing things i diferently now. We have meetings but they arc secret. The girls arc more afraid than the men." Yes, the girls are afraid. They are afraid of losing their jobs; afraid of being put on the dreaded 3 p. m. to 10:30 p. m. shift; afraid that when their two weeks' pay envelope is received there will be deductions for taking six minutes instead of five in going to and from wash rooms, or for speaking to a fellow worker much as once during working hours. They an; afraid the girl who works next lo them or whom they sit beside at lunch may be a company agent and 1 will repeat or deliberately misquote what they say. Yes. the girls are afraid. Men are afraid, too. Especially men with families to support. They know what happened lo one man who used to have a "white collar job" as u clerk in the mill office. Everyone in the town knows about him. After working at the plant for five years he was reduced to the least skilled job in the mill and the lowest wage. Why? The man himself iays it was because of union activities. "They thought I'd quit." he added, "but I wouldn't. Then they fired me." Others told me about men and women receiving the top wage scale who were dismissed for a few days or a week and then reemployed—at the wage paid a new worker. Called "Satisfied" Then there's the general manager. "Our people are perfectly satisfied." he asserted. "The company's attitude toward its employes is one of friendly co-operation. There is not dissatisfaction." perhaps there .isn't, from the general manager's point of view. All day in thr mills the huge .-prml.-: wind imermiiuibl>.
