Suffering from a severe case of the jitters, the Bobcats showed a reversal of form in the first quarter, fumbling frequently which paved the way for the Rcdbug's first marker. Marching deep into Hope's territory. late in the second quarter, Hardman tossed a pass to Elliott, accounting for the visitor's other score. The Bobcats swept Fordyce off its feet at the start of the second half. The visitors received and were held for downs. On the first running play that Hope attempted, Payne, halfback, shot through the line, found an opening and dashed 40 yards for the Bobcat's only score. It was the most thrilling run of the game. Hope immediately launched another touchdown drive, marching to the 12-ynrd line on running plays by Payne and a pass to Kennedy, only to be stopped by a stubborn Fordyce line. Anderson ami Hardman engaged in a puntins duel which.MV.^c.hall on Fordycc's 15-yard line when tlie Redbug's fumbled on a fourth down. Hope made another frantic bid for a touchdown with nil aerial attack which 1 failed. The quarter ended with Fordyce in possession of the ball on its own 25-yard line. Even In Fourth The two teams battled almost equally in the fourth quarter with the Kcdbug's having the edge as the game drew to a close. Fordyce made 10 first downs as compared to six for Hope. Madison, after intercepting a pass in the opening minutes of play, fumbled on his first attempt to carry the ball, the visitors recovering. Fordyce marched to Hope's 15-yard line on two first downs through the line and a pass to Elliott. Hope stiffened and held, turning back the first touchdown threat. The Bobcats attempted running plays, but were unable to gain. A bad pass from Holly at center almost got loose from Madison and he was thrown for a hig loss. Backed up near their own goal line, Payne called for a punt. A second high pass from Holly at. center came back and before Madison could make the kick several Iledbugs smothered him, blocking the ball. Fordycc n*- rovored on Hope's 4-yard line, and Hurdmau pushed across the goal line in two attempts to score the first touchdown. Bonner kicked the extra point. The entire first period was plnycd in Hope's territory. The Bobcats, however, showed signs of increasing strength as the second quarter opened. The line, from Captain Kennedy I at right end to .Hamilton at the other end, fought hard to turn back the driving attack of the heavy running Ilcdbugs. Taking the ball on Hope's 40-yard line, Fordyce on deceptive plays worked the oval through Hope's de(Continued on Page Three) Lumbermen Insist on Price-Fixing Vote for Enforcement Despite NRA's Indicated Withdrawal CHICAGO-(/Pj—The Lumber Code Authority decided Friday to retain minimum price provisions in the industry's code and to sec that they are enforced.

Hazen Producer Refused to Apply for or Use Certificates LITTLE RCCK.—John Halijan, Prairie county farmer, whose arrest on charges of refusing to comply with the Bankhead cotton control act was the first in Arkansas, is a man of few words. When deputy United Stales marshals appeared at his home 13 miles southwest of Hazen Wednesday night with a warrant for his arrest, he grimly refused to go with them until they resorted to force and declined to talk about the case. About a week ago Halijan refused to permit H. J. Hall, Hazen ginner, to attach a lien curd to a bale of cotton which had been ginned for him, and took the cotton home over Mr. Hall's protest. He previously had made no . lapplicalion for tax exemption certificates in compliance with provisions- of the Bankhcnd act. He operates a farm of considerable size and will have more cotton to market. Efforts of deputy internal revenue collectors on two visits to his farm to secure his compliance with the law were of no avail. When committed to the Pulaski county jail ho refused to discuss his difficulties. - On the following day. whon^visited by friends from Prairie county and a lawyer whose aid they bad enlisted, Halijan maintained a stubborn silence most of the time. Uc Is Silent Friday at his preliinary hearing before United States Comissioner Charles Jacobson. Halijan sat wordlessly in front of a mahogony desk, clutching a battered hat tightly in his great, gnarled hands. A mountainous hulk of a man giving the impression of tremendous physical strength, he shunpcd in a polished clwiv, still wearing the soiled and shabby overalls and blue shirt in which he had come from the field 'a short time before his arrest. In the background sat his mother, neat and decorous in a. clean cotton print dress. In her lap she held closely a shabby pocketbook. Behind thick glasses her eyes were keen, but she, like her son, was inarticulate. At her side-was Halijan's florid-faced younger brother, ill at ease in uncomfortable and unaccustomed "store- bought" clothes. He, too, was si'cnl Continued Vending Compliance To direct questions, Halijan replied with gutteral and monosyllable grunl.<- or with a brief li'xl and an "All right." Neither a plea of nni guilty, fixing of a bond of $300, nor a con- tiiuiiince, pending his compliance with the law, brought an utterance from him except under insistent (jue.stion- m(I- • i llul when the commissioner picked up a pen, signed a paper, pushed it across the desk, and .smiled, Halijan's stolid face swiftly beamed and he spoke his one .sentence of the hearing—four eager, stumbling words: "Can I go home?" Asked a few minutes later to pose for his photograph, Halijan grunted a Polish monosyllable at his mother, who followed him into an adjoining room for private conference. The younger brother remained outside, waiting. They called for their banker and (rusted friend. Soon the group walked out without a word of explanation In the waiting photographer. Watchinu the wordless trio as they vanished down the hall, a bystander sijjhed mournfully, "Gosh, why didn't my wife belong to that kind of family."

Eleven persons were killed in clashes Saturday morning, with trouble in the Asturias mining regions accounting for six of the morning's dead. A 14-year-old school boy and a laborer were killed when caught between the cross-fire of two factions. A general strike was called in Ec- corial, Victoria province. . Authorities 'in various outlying towns of the Asturias region reported continuous firing between groups of ambushed miners and detachments of troops; and up to noon Saturday no one had bene able to estimate the dead and wounded. Snipers were active in Madrid, and troops were ordered to begin a house- to-house attack to put them to rout. Official sources Saturday said a warrant had been issued for the arrest of former Premier Diego Mar- .fcinez Barrips as..the.leader,of the re* bellion in Aragon. MADRID, Spain—(Saturday)—A violent revolutionary effort to overthrow the government of Spain seemed to be spreading through the land Friday. Those killed in the fighting thus far numbered 70 to 75. Reports of fresh clashes and additional casualties were being received over crippled lines of communication since' the government officially placed the number of dead at 50. It was estimated that 1,500 demonstrators, many desperate revolutionists, had been arrested. In Madrid alone, 500 have been taken to police stations, several hundreds wounded. It was reported early Friday that extremists had destroyed the Northern railway line in Corbcrtoria to prevent mobilization of troops, Along the railway line connecting the Basque province with Asturias, rebels seized a train and ran it up and down several miles of the line whch they had seized. Troops finally man aged to blockade a tunnel, stopping the train. Fifty revolutionists aboard were arrested. Failure At Valencia Some- regions, however, were unaffected by the revolutionary activity in central and northern cities. From Valencia it was reported that the general strike is virtually a failure, and that cafes, theaters and provisions .stores remained open. Authorities at Seville said the strike was a failure. In Bilbao, authorities found many caches of munitions, hut said there were no serious disorders. Bilbao police raided a convent, formerly Jesuit property but now belonging to the government, and found about 100 powerful bombs ready for use, 20 pistols and a supply of ammunition. In the nearby town of Bermeo, extremists raised a red flag and formally declared existence of a Soviet republic. Civil guards promptly suppressed this movement. The new government of Premier Alejandro Lerroux, in office only 24 hours, issued orders that, under martial law, all extremists carrying weapons should be shot. Madrid cit- izons hurried home as the government declared it could not be responsible for the lives of those on the streets. The strike and revolution was the sixth major uprising the second Spanish republic has faced since it was founded in May, 1931. Communists, Socialists, and Syndico-Anarch- ists had made common cause against the Conservatives. Scatertcd reports indicate the revolutionary strike had ;iliuost paralyzed commerce, industry und transportation ut many places in Spain.

J.-(/P)-Arriving at Newark airport with his close friend, Douglas Fairbanks, the motion picture actor Joseph M. Schenck, president of the United Artists Motion Picture company, predicted late Friday that the election of Upton Sinclair as governor of California would "mean the ruination of the movie industry in that state." Schenck said he had been investigating possible sites in Florida for the removal of his company to the Southern state, and, atlhough admitting he had selected one site tentatively he declined to name where it is located. He said it "appeared certain" that Sinclair would be elected, and stated that if he is the "motion picture industry will be subject to unbearable taxes." Schenck declared he was speaking only for himself, but added that "in all probability" other companies would 'all in line in the exodus from Cali- 'ornia to Florida. •» i • Wife's Angry, So Grant Gets Drunk Gary Grant "Ashamed" of Poison Scare He Gave Hollywood HOLLYWOOD — (fl>) - Gary Grant, handsome leading man of the films, vowed Friday night he w;« "ashamed of getting drunk" and causing much confusion involving a poison scare and a frantic dash to his bedside by his beautiful but irritated wife, Virginia Chen-ill.

Gold and Silver «?*, -tfy New Chemical Process Unlocks Secret Treasure of the Sea NEW YORK— (jp)—Recovery of the first actual gold and silver ever taken from sea water, tapping the storehouse of metal everywhere dissolved in ocean water, was announced here Friday night by Dr. WUlard;H. Dow, of the Ethyl-Dow Chemical company. The first precious seawater metal is, a tiny nugget, one-tenth of a milligram, no bigger than the head of a pin. It is half gold and half silver. It came from -the Atlantic ocean at Wilminton, N. C. It is part of the gold and silver in 12 tons of seawater which was run through the seawater bromide plant near • Wilmington of the Ethyl-Dow company. The recovery fulfills a prediction made at St. Petersburg, Fla., last March by the same chemists that gold and silver could be taken from seawater. It also proves definitely the error in the world-wide scientific belief that no practical way would be found to get the gold out of the sea. The 12 tons of water yielded up part of its gold and silver by a treatment with colloidal sulphur. This sulphur was practically liquid. It dissolved in the water and when it settled out, like a sediment, it carried the long sought precious metals. The gold In tliis first tiny nugget: represents about one three-hundredth part of the yellow metal which the spectroscope indicates exists in the same 12 tons of water which was treated with the sulphur. The gold recovered is equal to one one-hundredth of one part in a billion of the water.
