A Heavier Bnckflcld Conch Hammons is also seeking heavier players in the bnckfiold. Freeman Stone, 200-pound fullback and lineman, will see more action in the backfield due to his blocking ability. Coach Hammons also was figuring on a way in which to use Spears, a substitute back who covered himself with glory in the Redbug game, leading the team with 19 tackles. "Spears was in there hustling every minute, and stopped play after play. I'm going to use him more frequently In future games," the coach said. Commenting on the coming battle with Hot Springs, Coach Hommons said: . "Although we may \y. considered the underdog for the first time this year, we're not conceding the Trojans n thing. The gnme is going to be tough, and a harder fought battle than the one with Fordyce. "I believe the players will be more stadier with the new line combination, »nd the buckfield ought to run more smoothly. Payne will have more experience at quarterback and Madison will be in better .shape for the nest game." the coach declared.

It so happens that Arkansas' centennial coincides with the lOOlh anniversary of the death of Bowie, who went down with David Crockett bc- tore the guns of the Mexicans at Fort Alamo. Daniel Boone built Kentucky, you might sny—wjiijo Bowie merely passed through Arkansas. But this is significant: Bowip' opened up to all Americans the greatest trade route to the Southwest. The silent Indian hunter stalking through a wilderness lias given way to shining motor cars whisking down paved highways. But they traveled the same road— and our Arkansas Centennial in 1930 should be an occasion for capitalizing on the historical qualities of highway No. 67. We should erect 1110111111101115 or plaques lor the occasion, making our history as graphic as the traveler finds Uiat of Virginia and Kentucky to be. With 9,252,000 Mnoth Ago CONDITION 56 PCT.

Prosecution Will Speed Insull U. S. Fears Trend to Acquittal, as in Many Lengthy Cases CHICAGO-(;P)— Prosecutors Sunday night said it might be necessary to hold night and special Saturday sessions on the Insul trial to get the case out of the legal trenches before next year. Dwight S. Green, youthful prosecutor of Samuel Insull and his associates hi mai,l fraud charges as -,a result of the collapse of the Insull utility company, said the case would continue for several weeks unless It was speeded up. Twenty-six witnesses appeared during the first week of the trial for the government and Green will have 50 more on hand Monday when the trial reopens. One of the longest trials on record here, that of J. Ogdcn Armour and nine other wealthy packers in the "beef trust" case in 1911-1912 saw a verdict of acquittal—that case lasted three months and 20 days.

One of the many types of work financed, in part, by the FERA in its effort to provide for the unemployed, has been the encouragement of people with artistic ability. In carrying out this idea in some of the eastern cities, a number of painting and mural decorations, scluptures and theatrical productions were done with aid of the federal government. The administration in Hope was able to get approved a project for paintings of historical scenes, for which the government pays a portion of the cost. One of these has been completed by a promising young artist, Miss Madge Schooley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Schooley of this city.

The case was the first of the criminal docket which started Monday morning. Maxwell was shot at a railroad crossing near Sprudel, dying a few days following 1 the shooting. Domestic trouble was blamed by officers for the killing. Bert Waddell of Texarkana, one oi .three men charged with robbery and abduction, in the holdup of the Blevins bank last May 10 in which approximately $300 was taken, pleaded guilty. His sentence has not been fixed. Roger Monroe and Will Green of Texarkana, also charged with the Blevins robbery, will go to trial separately. A jury was being selected at noon to try Green. Monroe and Waddell were identified by bank officials following their arrest as the actual robbers of the bank, and Green is held on the accusation that it was his car which was used in the holdup, C. C. Stephens, cashier of the bank and Earl White, a Blevins merchant, were abducted by the bandits and forced to accompany them several miles, being released unharmed. They walked back to Blevins ond notified officers. All three were arrested within three days of the holdup, CKief of Police, Clarence Baker of Hope, and Officer Homer Burke of this city, playing a major part in the capture which was effected at Texarkana. Officials at Washington indicated that Monroe would go on trial as soon as the case against Green is com plcted.

Blackwood, former chairman of the State Highway Commission, who was a candidate for governor in 1932, appeared before » special sersion of the Highway Audit Commission over the week-end and testified that he knew nothing about contributions of approximately 518,000 to hi.s campaign fund by highway employes, through Uic use of pro- misiwry notes and back salnry warrants. Testimony taken by the Audit Com-C mission in May indicated that em- ployes of the highway department, whose salaries were cut, received warrants for the back salaries, and that these were taken as payment on notes the employes had signed as contributions. Blackwood was summoned as a witness in June, but was out of the state at that time. Hc has made several attempts since to appear before the Audit Commission. The meeting Saturday was called hurriedly and Blackwood testified for more than an hovir. After he completed his testimony. he talked at length "off the record," discussing political affairs during the Parnell administration.

Blackwood said: "Governor Parnell came to me—he- did nol go to the commission—he came to me and told me, asked me would I be willing to cut every em- ploye I had iC ull other employes of tin.- state were cut. I told would be. I was the first 10 be cut and every employe I had wus cut Nobody griped ubout it. We all took a cut and thought everybody else was taking a cut. In several months some of the boys working down in the bookkeeping department had access to the auditor's office and the treasurer's office and they discovered that all the other departments had gone back to the salaries where they had been before the cut—the governor, his secretary, all of them. The boys got after me to pay them their old salaries. The "boys," Blackwood explained included about 15 or 20 men, and he promised them that if others had obtained their old salaries, he would see that the highway employes ob tained the money also. "Then came the campaign. I got into the campaign, I guess it was along in June, about June 15," Blackwood testified. "1 wasn't in the department any more until after the election. When I went into that campaign, I went in to spend $8,000 or $9.000. I knew I wouldn't win, knew I'd get licked, but I owed it to my friends, my family and I owed it to myself to get in—I thought I ought to gel i» ajid da all the popping oW I could.

Lindbergh, Jr., met his death accidentally or intentionally at the hand of the German carpenter at the Lindbergh estate March 1, 1932. The grand jury was to hear 23 witnesses summoned by the state. Meanwhile, . in . New York, Hauptmann's attorney said he was prepared to introduce witnesses tq show that th6 Gentian was n6t present either at the 1 kidnaping or the transfer of the ransom money. Hauptmann's counsel was denied a motion for permission to examine the minutes of the grand jury that indicted the German on the extortion charge. $300 Fines Levied by City's Court Judge Lemley Clears the Docket of Old Cases Late Saturday A long police court docket, including cases that have been postponed on several occasions, was cleared up Saturday in Judge W.

MADRID, Spain—Catalonia's revolution for independence collapsed under a heavy bombardment of shellfire Sunday, and the Spanish government apparently was smafehing down a three-day Red revolt that cost upward of 500 lives and 2,500 sacualties throughout Spain. Leaders of the secession, including President Luis Cimpanys of Catalonia, were captured in a short-lived civil war and marched through silent crowds to a prison ship in Barcelona harbor, where they will be court martialed and probably sentenced to death. They surrendered at 6:30 a. rn.. with Spanish destroyers and foreign legionnaires from Morocco converging up- in the Catalonian political citadel. Spain continued under martial law and vicious clashes with Socialist, Communist, und Anarcho-Syndicalist rebels harassed government forces in the capital and over the nation. The government estimated 5,000 arrests had been made. ItcbcLs Reported Smashed CCC Camps to Be Continued by U.
