H. WASHBUBN- THE ASSOCIATED PRESS from Washington transmitted 1 the following dispatch to Tuesday morning newspapers: Harry L. Hopkins, federal relief administrator, expressed the opinion Mondny that "the state of Arkansas is broke.' Hopkins was asked why Arkansas could be,"on 100 per cent federal relief." "It's not on '100 per cent federal relief," he replied. "For instance, the city o; Little Rock alone contributes $25.000 or $30,000 a month. As for the state's contribution—I think the state of Arkansas is broke. That's the reason." Tuesday morning's newspapers followed this, however, with a statement from Mayor Knowllon denying that Liltlc Hock paid more than $5,000 a month. XXX Arkansas had the misfortune to obtain a "drouth-ridden" reputation early in the panic-—in 1930. We were truly hurt that year. And on our past reputation we have been wholly exempt from matching federal relief money ever since. But in the very next year after the drouth, we harvested, in 1931, one of the best corn crops in Ihc history of tho state. Conditions have been as Rood, relatively, in Arkansas since 1930 as anywhere in the United States. Conditions nrc better in Arkansas in 1934 than for most nf the nation. The central northwest has lost its cash crop—wheat. The Middle West has lost iUs cash crop—corn. But Arkansas not only has most of its cash crop—cotton—but it savec much of its early corn. XXX These are facts every well-informed Arkansas citizen knows to be true and our political representatives in Washington are doing the state un told business damage by representing otherwise. .. The national business maps published by the various '"I ratio journals represent the South, from Arkansas eastward, as being one of the best business dlslricls in America today. But our politicians say othcrwise- so that the federal government may continue to be pressured into pouring additional tux money into local precincts. XXX We don't say that we couldn't use the extra money. But there are two kinds of federal money. If tho government is proposing to spend additional millions for work relief this winter, as a new chapter in the national recovery program—thai is perfectly all right. But it is wrong for us to continue to accept 100 per cent federal charily at a time when our sister states—some of whom are worse off than ourselves this year—are being forced to match federal money with slate and local Hauptmann May Be Mystery 'John' of Actual Kidnaping Newspaper Hears That His Alibi Exploded Under Investigation MAY GO TO JERSEY Possibility That Murder Charge Will Supercede Extortion Trial WASHINGTON-(/P)-Thc Washington Star said Tuesday that two secret witnesses had shattered the alibi offered by Bruno Richard Hauptmann to prove that he was not the "John" who figured in the Lindbergh kid- naping. NEW YORK— (/P)— New York and New Jersey officials met Tuesday in a, conference which may determine whether Bruno Richard Hauptmann shall stand trial for the kidnap murder of the Lindbergh baby before nrxwcring a ransom extortion charge. District Attorney Samuel J. Foley, of Bronx county, New York City, where Hauptmann has been indicted lf>r extortion, went to Trenton, N. J,, io confer with Governor A.

No indictments had been made pub lie at noon Tue.s.'.ay, Pinky Bycrs, deputy circuit clerk, announced. Among the more important cases under grand jury consideration were three murder chrngcs; the Crosncie- Boyd-Balos arson case; and the Blevins bank holdup. Several oilier cases brought up from Hope municipal court were being studied. What will probably hold the greatest interest, if indictments arc returned, will be the trial of throe negroes, held for the murder of Glenn L. Williams. Williams Case Williams was shot to death in the early morning hours of May 13, last, while on duty at the Fulton toll bridge. Officers pursued the theory that he was killed when ho resisted an attempted holdup. The trio hold for his murder are: Andrew Smith, Mutcn Hill and Drew Williams, all of the Red Lake area near Fulton and each with a criminal record. Another murder charge under grand jury consideration is the case of Malin Hawthorne, held for shooting Irvin Burns thg latter part of July near the /Hawthorne .home,. 10 miles \soutb--of Hope. Burns'died with shotgun pellcls in both legs and the lower abdomen. Officers said that n renewal of a family row over a land title led to the shooting.. The other murder charge is against Jake Henry, Sprudel negro, who killed Mose Maxwell, negro, about two weeks ago. The shooting occurred at night when Henry met Maxwell with his wife near a railroad crossing at Sprudel. Charles Crosnoe, Martin S. Bates and Robert Perry Boyd, arc charged with arson and robbery by intimidation in connection with a drugstore fire at Washington two years ago. Three men arc held for the Blevins bank robbery in which approximately ?300 \va staken last May 10. They are Borl Waddle, Will Green and Roger Moiu-oc, all of Tcxarkana.

Mitchell Speaks WASinNGTON -(/P)- Brigadier General William Mitchell, retired, told the president's Aviation Commission Tuesday that "our most dangerous enemy ia Japan and our planes should be designed to attack Japan." He also called the loss of the navy dirigible Akron disgraceful, and said that with 50 dirigibles the United States could destroy Japan within two days if war broke out. S«a Line Progresses WASHINGTON— (/}>)—The president's Aviation Commission was told Monday that both lighter-than-air and airplane lines across the Atlantic and the Pacific arc prospects of the near future. Former Senator Hiram W. Bingham, president of the Natiinal Aeronautical Association, said dirigibles were better suited to ocean than overland flights. He advocated government subsidies for establishment of such lines. Howard E. Coffin of New York, who was a member of the Morrow Aviation Board of 1935, said plans were advancing for construction of floating airdromes to be anchored in the Atlantic. The route would be vis Bermuda and the Azores, he said, and added: "Much the same thing will happen in the Pacific." Biiieham expressed conviction that German trade had profited from the flights of the Graf Zeppelin to South America, and French exports from that country's African air line. The dirigibles could be used by the navy for scouting in time of war. he said, if. plans for constructing them were approved by the navy. The former senator also advocated reduction of air mail poolage to three cents for single sheet letters und two cents for postcards. Clarence Weakley. Texurkana printer, joined The Star's mechanical department Monday us makeup man. Mr.- Wcakley was associated with the Tcxarkana PvcSvi computing room for three years.

A. Instruction Meet Diversified Program Observed at High School Session Saturday. The Parent-Teacher associations of Hope held then; annual joint school of instruction last Saturday, at the high school with an attendance of 103 members. The first hajf-hour was devoted to the various committee meetings, after which all the members assembled in the Library to be led in community singing by Mrs. John Wellborn. Mrs. C. D. Lcslcr, president of the city council, was in charge of the program -and in her introductory speech announced that Hope had furnished more stale officers in the P. T. A. organization than any other town of its size in Arkansas, therefore Hope has gained an enviable reputation throughout tho state. Miss Mamie Briant presented a devotional, using as her topic "Building a Life." She stressed the fact that each individual has a choice to make in building his own life just as a carpenter has to make a choice of materials in building a house, and that Jesus, the greatest carpenter that the world has known, erected such permament monuments that all the forces of evil have not been able to tear them down. Miss Beryl Henry, superintendent of city schools, was the chief speaker on the morning program. She prefaced her talk by using a quotation from the Children's Charter "To every child understanding, and the guarding of his personality as his most precious right." Miss Henry forcibly .staled (hat every child had the right to be accorded consideration that is shown to grownups. She demanded that we give youth a challenge, not coddling; service not satiety. "Schools are primarily designed to encourage the child to live in harmony with his surroundings and home is the place for character growth and character development," said Miss Henry and gave several instances in which a childs character had been definitely formed in the home. She concluded her talk with the quotation, "Whoso loves a child, loves not himself, but God." Upon the motion of Mrs. Jim Henry, n rising vote of thanks was given Miss Henry to show the love and esteem shown her by the entire community. Mrs. I?. V. Hall of Tcxarkana introduced the new magazine The Par- nt Teacher which now takes the place of the old Child Welfare mag- i/.ine as the official organ of the P. T. A.
