Three Days of Community Entertainment-Southwest Arkansas Merchants & Fanners Fair, in Hope October 21-22-23. Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor —-Alex. H Washburn •—No, 29—Again O IL men say that the Standard's McKcan No. 1 f«st near Buckner is a producer, and the oil industry is giving attention to this important discovery well from a sand 7,204 feet deep. This reminds us of some pertinent highway information. The McKcan test is only a few yards from Highway No. 82, the Tcxnrkann-EI Dorado road. That road is being black-topped by the State Highway Department, while Hope's No. 29, the Shreveport road which intersects No. 82 at Lewisville, remains untouched through the years. If Buckner gets a real oil field, with the resultant increase in activity for the larger towns in the general area, Hope isn't going to feel good toward the political powers who have built roads for Texarkana while leaving Hope severely alone. We have been doing a lot of talking about No. 29—but the discovery of this Buckner oil field is going to bring action. The Slur Isn't interested in stirring up trouble for Texnrkana and El Dorado, which depend on No. 82 for their connecting link—but both cities have a network of paved roads, while Hope and its entire territory have but one, No. 67. If the State Highway Commission can't figure out a way to improve No. 29 then it ought to cut <!:'wn on No. 82 until it can do so. Both El Dorado and Texarkana may say in opposition to No. 23 that it "will take trade out of the stale" to Shreveport. Texarkima in in no position to talk about thai, being a Texas city—and furthermore, if state lines were to dictate all highway construction we would have no through roads at all. The fact of the matter is No. 29 is nn important highway in its own right, with traffic that is admittedly too great to be handled on a gravel surface. Hope doesn't expect to get the 53 miles from here to the Louisiana line paved overnight—but we can do two things: 1. Work with Shreveport to get No. 29 declared H federal highway. 2. Line up nil the other towns along No. 29 and No. 67 and put on the "pressure." All we've had so far is a lot of conversation, while the other boys have gotten construction. Hope Laundry Bought by F. Cook; to Be Re-equipped Tennessee Operator to Make it Standard Modern Laundry IS SPENDING $3,600 McKenzie~"(Tenn.) Operator on Own Account for 14 Years •Hope Steam Laundry has been bought by Fred H.

Miller Greeted by His Home Town Searcy Gives Senator- Elect Ovation From Thousands SEARCY, Ark —(/1V-John F,. Miller Second District Cnncre.ssm!in, and United States Senator-elect, was given a grout ovation by his home town and many visitors who held a victory celebration here today. He will suc- j ceed the late Senator Joe T. Robinson j as majority louder. i Mr. Miller was given a rousing | "glad hand" when he stepped to the courthouse balcony, following his introduction by Al Median of Stuttgart, his campaign manager. After the prolonged demonstration. Mr. Miller was too deeply affected to speak for several moments. During his brief speech his voice broke frequently. "I would rather have the confidence and respect of the friends and neighbors who have known me the past quarter century than anything in the world," the senator-clod .said. "Bo- cause of this wonderful demonstration of friendship, 1 cannot talk as 1 would like to. and you who know me best, understand why. "1 realize fully," he continued, as he gradually regained control of his voice "the deep responsibilty wrich the people of Arkansas have placed upon me, find .shall approach the discharge of my duties with a feeling uf dee humility. It is utterly impossible for me to take the place of Senator Robinson. 1 believe no man or womon in Arkansas can do that, but I shall dedicate to the service of the state of Arkansas and \ to the nation all the energy, all the intelligence 1 possess and my one prayer is that 1 may justify the faith of the people of my .stale." Elaborate decorations of the national colors transformed the classic architecture of the While county court house, mie "f the oldest und most beautiful in the- -slate. Mr. Miller spoke from the east balcony, where two years ago Senator Robinson, in an address to the Young Men's Demo- crutis club of White county, paid tribute to the splendid service being rendered his district by Congressman Miller, who in an oulugisitc speech had introduced the senator. Japan May Plead for Parley Delay Says^fhere Isn't Prepare foK Chinese Peace Session TOKYO, Japan.—(>V)—A foreign office spokesman indicated Friday Japan may plead lack of lime to make preparations and ask postponement, of the mute-power uonflorcnce on the Chinese-Japanese situation.

VOLUME 39—NUMBER 8 HOPE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1937 PRICE 6c COPY FAIR HEARING &•&•&•&•&•'& & •£ is Kickoff for Hope Nashville Game at 8 p. m. Heavier Bobcats Expect Win; But Anybody's Battle Scrappers Minus Vaughn Tollett, But Have Plenty of Power NO OVERCONFIDENCE Emory Thompsons Hurt in Magnolia Car Crash Mr. and Mrs. Emory A. Thompson of Fulton, driving between Magnolia and El Dorado Wednesday night, were struck by u negro's car and injured, although not seriously, according to word reaching Hempsteael county friends. Mrs. Thompson sustaind cuts about the head and it was at first feu red that her husband, former county representative, suffered a concussion. But Mr. Thompson's condition later was pronounced as satisfactory, although suffering shock. Cured by DeQueen Experience, Bobcats Are a Wary Outfit A southwest Arkansas football classic will be seen at Hammons stadium at 8 o'clock Friday night when Hope's Bobcats entertain the Nashville- Scrappers —a football duel that has been going on for a generation. Hope's heavy and fast team, undefeated in state competition, is looking for a victory—but with fingers crossed. Always, each season brings a Jonah into the camp of football followers Last year it was DeQueen, whose Lc-opards ruined an unbeaten season for the Bobcats. This year it might be the Scrappers—and so Nashville will bo received with caution and care. Hope Is Heavier Hope outweighs Nashville—but Hope outweighed DeQueen a year ago, and that didn't prevent the locals from losing 12-7. Nashville hasn't Vaughn Tollett. this year, but it has 'other good ground- gainers and a big stout squad with plenty of accurate team-work. The Scrappers have smashed DeQueen, Dierks, Horatio and Prescott, and have lost only to Camden—Hope's great conference foe. In the Nashville game Hope is seeking its sixth victory of the season, having won five to date, including two conference wins—and losing only to Byrd High of Shreveport, Louisiana state champion. Easoii Is Out Joe Eason, regular fullback, won't suit up Friday night, having sustained an injured ankle in scrimmage this week. Freeman Stone, 205-pound nil-state tackle, has been shifted to Easim's post in the backfield, Johnny Wilson replacing Stone at right tackle. Stone has been getting off 60-yard punt-s in practice and will do the kicking Friday night. The kickoff is at 8 o'clock. Tickets are on sale at Hope confectionery and Jacks newsstand. Fan are urged to buy downtown and save confusion at the stadium gates. Friday afternoon the Hope second team is in Blcvins for u game with Blcvins High School at 2:30 o'clock. Chances looked none too good for that one—Blevins wants a game with Hope's first squad, and may take vengeance on the second team since schedule difficulties prevent different arrangements. All boys in the seventh, eighth and ninth grades who want to play football are asked to report to Lawrence Martin next Monday afternoon at the high school field. A junior team is to be organized. Attorney's Career as Racing Owner Short LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-H/1'i—Attorney General Jack Holt said Thursday hi.s career as a racing owner was over.

He christened it "Happy Chandler" because of his friendship with the governor of Kentucky. OnTrial Probable Starting Lineups HOPE Ramsey Quimby Keith Jewell W.

Man Flocks to New Religion in Search for True Happiness All Churches Gain 837,404 Members (During Year 1936 But Unorthodox Movements, Like the Oxford, Gain Strength SWEEPING ENGLAND Oxford Movement Suggestive of the Catholic Confessional This is the third of of five '.' stories on the diverse roads down which millions arc drawn in today's frantic pursuit of happiness. BY WILLIS THORNTON NBA Service Staff Correspondent Troubled and unhappy, man has always turned to religion, and during the past few years he has turend to it more eagerly than he has for a long time. . &H .long-established..churches have shown striking" increases in membership in late years from people seeking contentment and happiness in religion. America's churches gained 837,404 members in 1936, the Christian Herald reports, the Roman Catholic faith increasing by 221,837, the Baptist by 140,308, Reformed by 81,985, Lutheran, 43,906, Methodist 41,798, and nearly all 'other denominations in proportion. Such an increase shows definitely the tendency of the people to turn in a trouble dtime to ancient faiths and ancient sources of contentment and happiness. But more striking perhaps has been the eager turning of many to forms of religion that differ widely from those of the past. The rise of a phenomenon like the Oxford Movement is typical of such trends, which extend far down into combinations of what is generally thought of as religion with various forms of mysticism and occult philisophy. Religious authorities have not hesitated to call the Oxford Movement or First Century Christian Fellowship, "the greatest religious movement since Wesley." The founder, Rev, Frank Nathan Daniel Buchman, was a Pennsylvania clergyman, who carried his movement to Oxford in 1920. The Time Was Ripe There war-ravaged British youth was waiting for him, and the movement took on. In the United States it obtained quite a foothold in several eastern colleges. And when the depression hit the United States, the lime was ripe for a movement that already had large followings in Britain, South Africa, Norway and Denmark. Nobody knows how many thousands- are devotees of the Buchman principles, but five and ten thousand have shown up for his "house parties." These are a sort of evangelical camp- meeting in high hats, for Buchmanism s-ecms to appeal to an extraordinary proportion of people in comfortable circumstances. People joining the movement arc not converted, but "changed," and they partake not in confession, but Art of Teaching for all persons interested in "sharing" a process of relating to j fellow converts one's sins and short- Inter- com j n g Si Psychologists well aware of in working with early adolescents. •1.

Without machinery of dues, rolls, records, a recognized clergy, or other formal organization, the Buchmanitcs seek direct guidance from God in every act, and the whole movement is tinged with smiling happiness that lias drawn many to it. Neither years nor incessant internal bickering have dimmed the appeal of Aimee Semple McPherson and whu ure interested in the Bible as the toxi-lwok of the Sunday .school. The faculty of seven trained Sunday school and church leaders will be in charge of ckiss \\ork each night of the .school. Monday through Friday: Kev. Wallace R.

Must Be Happier 1 hough Theosophy dates back to 1875 in the United States, the teachings propagated by Helena P. Blavutsky and Annie Besant have attracted a growing following. Between religion and philosophy, this creed revolves around a body of occult teachings believed to have ben passed down from ancient adepts or mahatmas, principal among them are reincarnation and the Indian doctrine of Karma.
