PRICE 5cCOPT HAMBURG GAME AT 8 P. M Here and There •Editorial By ALEX. H. WASHBUEN- ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft F RIDAY night Hope inaugurates the now football season with a. new coach, a new team, and a new .stadium. Ahead lies the most spectacular schedule ever arranged for the Bobcats, including home games against Camdcn, Fordycc, El- Dorado, Hot Springs and Little Rock. If there ever was a combination appealing to the sporting instinct of a city. Hope has such a combination this year. '? We owe it, lo Hope High School lo attend every game this fall. We owe il in loyalty lo Coach Foy Hammons, probably Ihc hc;;l football mcnlor in tho stale. There arc some good people who bewail the emphasis put on football in present-day schools. But for the type of athletic competition represented in Hammons-coachcel learns no apology is needed. ' Hope hardly expects to produce a state championship outfit—not thi.s ycnr, and not necessarily ever. But it docs expect to revitalize football locally, as thc great outdoor au- Textile Strike Is to End Saturday Ballots Missing When Ashley Box Is Finally Opened Kitchens May Ask Can- celling of Entire Official County Vote D ESTROY INTEGRIT Y Parks to Probe Stevens School house Box in Hempstead HAMBURG, Ark.-Whcn thc boxes in which ballots cast in Ashley county in the August 28 runoff primary were supposed to have been placed by election officials here Thursday, it wax found thai all had been lampcr cd with. The ballots were to have been examined in connection with thc contest suit of Wade Kitchens, of Magnolia, against Congressman Tilman B. Parks, of Camdcn. Parks, on thc face of returns from thc Seventh congressional district, was renominated. No poll books or register of voters were found in any of tho boxes. Tally sheets wcree found in the Milo and Memtrosc boxes. One ccrlificalc of returns, signed by the juelccs and clerks wns foup'V in tl"> f.'f ".ntr;. so box. This showed that Kitchens received M vot- I os and Parks 3fi, whereas thc returns certified by thc Central Committee showed tho revcre.se—thai Kilchens got 36 and Parks 54 votes. In thc Portland box only a few votes were found. In the Cooler box there wns only on t . ballot. In the Hickory Grove box there was only a lead pencil. Keys Were Transposed In unlocking thc boxes il was found that the key labeled for Cross Roads unlocked Ihc Mount Zion box and the key to the Mount Zion box unlocked the Cross Roads box. Most of thc envelopes supposed to hav c contained the ballots had been torn open. Most of thc boxes had been taken lo Ihc office of thc county clerk and left there since Ihe night of the election. A few were not delivered there until Friday or Saturday after Iho primary, it was said. E. C, Aiken, secretary of thc Democratic County Central Committee, on Monday after thc election, in thc absence of the county clerk, was reported to have procured the ballot Ijoxes from the clerk's office, taken them to the office of an attorney in the courthouse, and with other members of the ronmiitlec, kept them (here for several hours under lock an/1 key. 11. wns suit] the official count was niiidc there and was announced immediately thereafter. Mr Aiken's Version Mr. Aiken said that the ballot boxes were taken to the attorney's office after he had learned that one or more persons had sought lo "gel into them" and that while they were still in his custody, he and other members of ,', tho commttce opened thc boxes to i ascertain whether all the tally sheets and other records wccr intact. After Ihe Central Committee had certified the results', Mr. Aiken said the boxes wccr relurned to the vault in thc county clerk's office and that the "tampering" was done,, Mr. Aiken asserted. The door to the lawyer's office did not have a lock on it" he added. Mr. Aiken said he feared efforts would be made; to tamper with the ballots after an offer of ?1,000 had been made to him to switch the votes. Mr. Aiken has been a member and .secretary of the committee for several yaurs. He was succeeded as a member of the Central Committee from Crossed al the last primary. Says Integrity Destroyed As the result of Thursday's disclosures. Kitchens attorneys will ask that the offiii'al Ashley county vote be "thrown out" and that ns an alternative, they be given an opportunity lo re-establish a correct, vole when thc contest hearing itself is held. As far as the congressional race is concerned, integrity of the vote has already been deMroycd, they .said. Counter (.'barges of fraud and misconduct wil bc made in Parks answer and cross-complaint to be filed at Hamburg in a few days. Parks has until September 28. or 10 days after ,,1-c WHS served in the Kilchens' -suit "in which lo file an answer.

Lindbergh paid for th c return of his baby was found. Immediately after the charge was filed Hauptmann, weary from his long questioning that began with his arrest Tuesday morning, was taken from the Bronx county courthouse to police headquarters, where he was placed in the lineup for further questioning. There, Acting Chief Inspector John J. Sullivan, declared: "We have a perfect extortion case against this man." Sullivan added that the Lindbergh case is not yet completed by any ^mcans. As Hauptmann appeared in the liner up he seemed greatly agifatcd and tottered as he walked to thc stand supported by policemen. The more sinister angle of the case appeared Friday to be unsolved—that is the actual kidnaping and murder of Baby Charles. J. Edgar Hoover, Justice Department head, and Colonel Norman Schwarzkopf, head of the New Jersey state police, have not indicated whether they believe the ransom payment and the kidnap-murder were the work of separate groups. Mrs. Anna Kauptmann, wife of the man who is held, and his nephew, were rclca.sed Friday. Police said they had "absolutely no connection with thc case.)" Chief Inspector Lewis Valentine was named Friday to succeed General John F. p'Ryan a few hours after the general announced his resignation. O'Ryan resigned at th e end of his vacation but indicated that the would continue to hold office until thc present phase of the Lindbergh case is cleared up. Hauptmann was ordered held without bail until Monday by Magistrate Richard McKinvry in West Farms police court Friday when arraigned on a rliargo of extortion In the $50,000 Lindbergh ransom case. From Trenton, N. J. a warrant for extradition, was issued by Governor Moore on a charge of homicide. Copyright Associated Tress NEW YORY ir _(/p)_Tho Lindbergh baby kidnaping case—thc most sensational crime of modern times—neared a solution with spectacular swiftness Thursday night after the arrest of « German fugilive and Ihe recovery of part, of the ?50.000 ransom. The prisoner, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, 35. an alien and a carpenter by trade, who entered htc United States in 1923 as a stowaway on parole from a German prison. His wife and nephew, Hans Mueller, also were held for questioning. Writing Tallies With Notes Justice Department officials disclos- tallied with that on the ransom noes in the kidnaping. His application for an automobile license in New York state in the summer of 1932 was used to cheek the notes, whose contents never have been made fully public. In informed circles it was learned that thc Justice Department felt that thc kidpaping had been fully solved in Hauptmann's arrest. The department, it was said, had felt that one person alone—and he not a gangster—was the kidnaper. Thc belief was predicated upon the fact that most of the ransom money recovered was found in New York, Had gangsters teen involved, Ihe money would have been sent to other cities for distribution. $50.000Loot Seized in Morning Holdup of Manhattan Bank NEW YORK — (#>)— Gaining entrance through a skylight during the night bandits executed a well-planned holdup of the Corn xchange Bank Friday, obtaining 550,200 in loot. When thc porter of the bank arrived in the morning the bandits slugged him, and as other employes arrived each was nibbed and herded into a room. A special officcd was disarmed anc handcuffed. Richard Rehehan, manager, was forced to open the vault and hanc over thc money. Reward Is Raised for Dog-Poisoners Total of $25 Offered for Identification of Poison Distributors Additional rewards .bringing the total to $25 wore posted Friday for information leading to thc arrest and conviction of dog-poisoners. An attempt was made Thursday night to poison two bird dogs owned by-Bert Keith. 319 South Shovcr, in the section of town where'an unidentified man tossed poison meat into the yard of R. O. Bridewell, Tuesday night. An analysis by Glen Durham, instructor of chemistry at the Hope High school, showed that the meat found in Mr. Keith's yard had been slit open and a portion of strychnine had been placed inside. One of Mr. Keiths dogs ate part of the meat, but injections of hypodermics saved its life. A dead bird dog was found Friday morning in a pasture in the southeast part of the city, apparently slain by poison. Thc dog had not been identified at noon.

Hammons-Coached Bobcats to Make First Appearance Prospects Bright for Locals Against Hardest Schedule Ever TO DEDICATE FIELD Despite Illness Payne Will Play at Fullback— ' Brown at Quarter The football season opens here Friday night with the Bobcats ruling as slight-favorites to win over Hamburg High School. Enthusiasm was running at a higher pitch that at the usual start of grid • campaigns here, partly due to brighter prospects for a winning team, and the acquisition of Foy H. Mammons as coach. The game Friday night -marks the return of Coach Hammons to high school football after more than five years as a director of college athletics. . The season will be officially ushered in with the opening kickoff— 8 p.m.. The new high school foolball^stad- ium will be dedicated with short speeches by Dr. Don Smith and Steve Carrigan. The new grandstands have a seating capacity of approximately 2,000 spectators. The Bobcat team sped smoothly through two workouts Thursday as Coach Hammons tested various line and backfield combinations. The team may resort to any kind of an attack Friday night. The squad has been drilled on hard running: plays for the past few days, but if the going gets hard, Pete Brown, veteran quarterback, may tak c to the air lanes in search of victory. Brown is a triple threat back, arid will do most of; the ..team's punting and passing,.
