u Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor -Alex. H Washburn The Methodist Conference H OPE today welcomes the arriving ministry and laymen of the Little Rock Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. This is the 8'lth annual mooting nf the conference, and in all those years Hope has been host city but throe times— this being the fourth. The holy cloth of our distinguished guests, and the alarms of war in the world outside us, suggest that never in modei'n times has a materialistic-minded nation felt keener need of the religious impulse—represented for the moment by state leaders of a major Protestant church here in our midst. Measured by the slight stature of political creeds, dictators, violence and war, Christianity is a giant looming down on us through the ages—while these others last no more than a generation, born in confusion, and buried in doubt. H is a recorded fact that alt American churches made exlrn- onliimry gums in membership dur- int> the lute economic panic. ll is l'0'bnbly a further fact thnl lho '-hurches will be looked to by even larger numbers now, as America faces a foreign world on either ocean front in which the monster of war stands boldly outlined. Not all our scientific, economic, political progress has found n solution for world problems that cos I men their happiness nml their lives. And recognizing this fact, humanity turns away, not in disillusionment, but appraising the half-made things of men for what they really are—reserving its worship and prayers for a Deity of justice and mercy above all mortals. Arkansas Highway Department Begins Safety Campaign Co-operation of Public Officials, Private Citizens, Asked REDUCE DEATHS 5% Report for First 9 Months of 1937 Is Better Than 1936 The Arkansas Slate Hiuhway Commission has announced a .stale-wide traffic .safety campaign for the im- iricdinlc pur|M.sc of bringing together every resource nf the state in order to effect a substantial reduction in motor vehicle accidents and traffic fatalities during the remainder of 13117. The campaign will be under the direction of Harvey Boolh, traffic supervisor for the State Highway Commission, and head of its safety division. While the Stale Highway Department is initialing! this campaign, Mr. Booth is asking for the co-operation and assistance of eve/y public official as well as for the cooperation of citizens in every walk of life. Mr. Booth states thai clubs and civic organizations are being asked to give the campaign attention at every meeting during the next two months, and that .school administrators and teachers are asked to spread the word of safely through the class room and in all i school activities. The facilities of every radio station in Arkansas have been made available for the furtherance of this campaign and every radio station in the stale will broadcast safety information, daily during the two months period. Deaths Cut 5% In the first nine months of 1937 there has been a decrease of fatalities on Arkansas highways of approximately 5 per cent. For the months of November and December, 19110, eighty- three peoplelos t their lives through traffic accidents. It may be stated without apology that the.se eighly- thruc people were either "murdered" or "committed suicide."

Ramsay i'Donald of England Dead Famed Labor Leader and Ex-Premier .Succumbs at Age of 71 LONDON, Ent'.- l/l') —J. Ramsay MacDonald, 71, who rose through labor's ranks from Scottish poverty to become thrice prime rnini.stcr of Great Britain, died suddenly Tuesday night aboard a cruise ship bound for South America. Dr. Alastair MacKinnon, MacDonald's son-in-law, received news by radio of the death of Britain's first Labor prime minister. The man who was born the son of a Scottish farmer and spurned an earldom only this year, died aboard the steamer Reina del Pa- cificio at 8:45 p. in., apparently of a heart attack. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain received news of his death shortly after addressing the lord mayor's banquet in the Guildhall, the occasion at which only a year ago MacDonald suffered a sudden collapse. The body will be taken off the ship at Bermuda, where it is due November 15, and returned to England. In 1931 MacDonald formed his third government, a ccalition cabinet said then to have been necessitated by a national emergency. Many of MacDonald's lifetime associates in the Labor movement and in his first two Labor governments broke with him, and he became bitterly hated by the Labor party. MacDonnld resigned and turned over the premiership to Baldwin in 1935 after a critical depression period had strained his health. 1. Wliu was the bachelor President of the United States. 2.
