y.^.^ Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn —On Feeling Important I GIVE you this terse comment from the October issue of Imperial Type Metal magazine, edited by William Feather. Quoting— "Lack of something to feel important about is almost the greatest tragedy a man may have," says Dr. Arthur Morgan, president of Antiocli College. Tin's is what makes even war altniclico. For many it is a reloa.se from monotony and an opportunity for heroism. Everybody in » war seeks U> enjoy a sense of importance, nr\d leadership goes to those who can bestow a feeling of importance on those who follow them. Peace Is unsatisfying if it is dull. How to make the worlrl interesting anil lively to all Is a difficult, if not insoluble, problem. Once religion gave to the humblest peasant n support in his darkest hours.

Rogers Closing Speaker at First Baptist The week of special training for Sunday sch<x>l and church leaders will close with on (.stand inf! features Friday night. The Hcv. Wallace H. Rogers will deliver the inspirational address and an informal social hour will he held in the educational building of the church. "Tin's is the niKKcsl and best training scl.:>ol I have ever sen," declared Arthur C. Krwin. superintendent of the .Sunday school to the meeting of over 125 officers and teachers Thursday, night. The general opinion of llifise who have attended is that the information which hits been secured and the training which hns been received will result in more and larger Sunday school classes taujjht by teachers who lire heller qualified and manned by officers who are more efficient than they were before they had this week's training. The Rev Ralph W. Davis of Ashdown. Ark., delivered the inspirational uddrcKs Thursday night, lie stressed the importance of influence. "John, being younger than Peter, outran him to the tomb of Jesus on Hie ressurection morning. When they reached the tomb, John was timid and paused outside, afraid to enter. The bolder man reached the tomb, went Pftujbifahii nnd called, 'Come on, John and look. Jesus is not here.' Then the timid soul went on in because of Hie example and influence of the stronger personality. 'So it often happens,' continued Mr. Davis, 'thai Sunday school pupils linger at the door of the church auditorium, undecided as to whether to go into the church service. Along comes someone else, and in which ever direction that person goes, the hesitating one goes.

Ans\vors on Clarified I'agc Here Is "AP" Review.of Coming Special Sesr sion Congress WASHINGTON—(/T';—A major portion of the legislative program planned for the special session of congress and the ensuing January regular cession will affect Arkansas vitally. The Arkansas delegation, with .its new senator, John E. Miller, consequently will have enough to ketp it busy from the special session's opeh- ing until the house election campaigns roll around next summer. ^ ' .1 Main Issues Three major issues will interest tHc Arkansas senators and represeritfe- tives from the first gavel rap. * They will be crop control, the anjji-. lynching bill, tmd wages and hour legislation. Each :i sizeable proposition in itself, the three together are capable of commanding the delegation's best energy and keenest interest during weeks of what will probably be pro-' longed consideration. Crop controls, which will have^priority when the special session onpns, stands out as possibly the biggest iaj^tgjj of the entire. 75111,^congress for "ihe Arkansans. ••" • ' What provision will lac made for cotton in a crop control program is a question naturally touching Arkansas to the quick, affecting the suite's economic life and the fortunes of thousands of its farmers. With crop control out of the way, Miller can be expected to oppose the anti-lynching bill against which he delivered a hot verbal assault on the house floor last session. Miller was known last session as one of the anti-lynching bill's most ardent tees in congress. He contended it was unconstitutional and an intrusion into local government. The anli-lynching bill will have the right of way in the senate after crop control under an agreement made last session when a legislative jam threatened. Wages and hours legislation, like crop control, one of the five points of (Continued on Page Three) Rise in Subscription Prices Is Predicted NEW YORK— (/P>— The prediction that many newspapers would be forced to raise their circulation rates because of fast-rising newsprint (paper) and other production costs, was given Friday by W.

U. S, Spanish Capital Again Is Changed Moved From Madrid to Valencia, and Now to Barcelonia MADRID, Spain—(flV-Home Secretary Julian Zuga^goitia announced Thursday night that the seat of the Spanish government was being transferred from Valencia to Barcelonia. He gave as the reason the necessity of consolidating all forces. He said the transfer proved the solidarity between Catalonia (of which Barcelonia is the capital) and the government. The move will entail transfer of all foreign diplomatic missions which were established in Valencia last November after the government left Madrid.

Artillery shelling and an aerial attack in the Chinese-Japanese war spread damage among American mission and other foreign property. During the day Friday the British defense line along the settlement boundary was frequently under fire. One unidentified foreigner and several Chinese also were reported killed by Japanese shells falling inside the British lines. . Japan's Peace Terms PARIS, France.— (tP)— A high Japanese source disclosed Thursday what were said to be the minimum conditions on which Japan was willing to negotiate peace in China. This informant suggested that interested powers, particularly the United States, start conversations looking toward an armistice, which he indicated the Japanese would like before intense cold begins in certain sections of China. Japan, he said, was disposed to accept friendly conversations on peace in China and suggested that the nine- power conference called to meet at Brussels November 3 might give interested nations a mandate to sound out the Japanese and Chinese governments on their minimum terms. The Japanese terms were said to be; 1. Temporary occupation by Japan of China's five Northern provinces. 2. Creation of a neutral zone about Shanghai from which Chinese troops would be excluded and in which order would be maintained by an international police force of Japanese, American, British, French and Italian troops. Army Views Not Known These terms, it was said, represented the views of Japanese diplomats in Europe and presumably those of the Tokio government, although views of (Continued on Page Three) Probable Starting Lineups HOPE CAMDEN Ramsey (180) .._„ L.
